Results should be posted later today, my guess is US Flag airlines will be at the back of the pack (again).

Congratulations! ANA got ATW's 2013 airline of the year and skytrax 5 star rating, would be interesting to see where it falls in skytrax's ranking? I think last year DAL broke the top 50 mark by coming in at #49! Will see how the ranking goes for this year!

Big moves for Emirates and ANA this year.

Delta and United both rose in the 2013 rankings, #45 and #57 in the world respectively (Aeroflot was #61 for reference).

Congrats! You have joined the ranks of Qatar(winner, Airline of the year 2012 & 2011)!

Now, before everyone gets all excited let's ask the question(s), How does EK win Airline of the Year when,

a)It doesn't win Best Business Class and Best Cabin Crew(middle east). Both won by Qatar, AND

b) It doesn't win Best First Class and Best First Class Seats. Won by Etihad.

:confused:;):D

American 81st and USAirways 97th place. But look it on the bright side. When you average the 2 they should be in 89th place after the merger.:D

I was surprised to see Alaska so far down the chum line.

Good for Virgin American! 29th on the hit parade. Way above Delta!

And still never made a dime while paying sub-standard wages!:(
