Since 1999, the British independent organization skytrax each year establishes a world ranking of the best airlines. To compose this list, known in the aviation community as the “Oscars of the aviation industry”, more than 14 million passengers were questioned over 11 months (from September 2021 to August 2022). Customers had to answer several questions related to their trip: quality of cabin service, flight quality (comfort of seats, quality of meals, choice of audiovisual programs, etc.), experience before and after the flight (ease to reserve in queue, waiting time, luggage delivery, etc.), but also a questionnaire regarding the various measures taken to fight against Covid-19. The Skytrax World Airline Awards 2022 ceremony took place in London on September 23 and these are the results.
