According to the annual Skytrax World Airline Awards the world`s best airline is... Emirates! Finally the Dubai-based airline reclaimed its number one spot after a decade when it was voted in 2001 for its first world`s best airline of the year award and after which defended the title on the following year. In addition to garnering the overall top honors Emirates had also bagged two other awards-the best Middle Eastern airline award and the best in-flight entertainment award.
Luxury flights are generally deluxe flights that have expensive and high-class accommodation and several other frills. An abundance of space and extra comforts complete with a lavish environment are essential to luxury flights. People will fnd luxury flights have spacious interiors a relaxing environment an attentive and competent crew serving world class cuisine. Specific facilities may differ from airline to airline. Some may offer individual LCD screens with hi-fi headsets for uninterrupted viewing pleasure. Some go one step ahead and take movie requests a day earlier. The crew is trained to anticipate passenger needs and wishes. World class cuisine specially prepared taking into consideration specific dietary needs and preferences of the passengers is served on the planes as well. Care is taken to gather all these details at least 48 hours before departure. A handful of business tickets can generate as much revenue as dozens of economy seats. But as economy class becomes more cost-effective business and first class get much classier and more enticing than ever before.
The Business Class cabin was two thirds empty on the two hour Buenos Aires - Santiago sector and we landed an hour of so before sun down in clear and warm conditions with the Captain informing us it was still 29 degrees C. All passengers were deplaned at Santiago during the one hour station stop so that the aircraft could be groomed for the long-haul flight back to Toronto. Interestingly enough Air Canada has traffic rights between Buenos Aires and Santiago so some passengers left us but a larger number along with the new crew were waiting to join the flight at gate 15 in the new Santiago Airport terminal. Large glass windows are a prominent feature of the new airport which is great for aircraft spotters but they somehow forgot to incorporate an adequate air-conditioning system. It was stifling hot as we waited to board the flight although the Servisair-GlobeGround contract agents boarded the plane efficiently there was no advance boarding for Business-Class passengers as normal in Canada.
