Once again, Garuda Indonesia has won the hearts of passengers with their amazing cabin crew, winning the Skytrax World’s Best Cabin Crew Award for 2018. It’s the fifth year in a row the airline has received the award, and it’s well deserved.
The award considers several aspects of the crew, including their techniques, efficiency, attention, enthusiasm, attitude, friendliness and hospitality. With that said, let’s take a look at the top five that made it to this year’s list.
Oman Air has made some major improvements this year, starting with their new First Class Suite and now with the opening of their divine first class and business class lounges in Muscat International Airport.
One of the most notable aspects of these lounges is the decor and style. The design is remarkable, where you can see different gold tones in every little piece throughout the lounges, making it seem like you’re in a luxurious dessert with everything you need right at your fingertips.
Although this year’s award-winning airline is Singapore Airlines, there are other well-known airlines that have made a lot of effort to improve themselves in order to stand out above the rest. That is why Skytrax also awards these types of carriers, recognizing them as most improved over the course of one year.
The World’s Most Improved Airline award reflects an airline’s overall improvement in various categories including miles program, products (seats, comfort, food, drinks, etc.), cabin staff service, and ground service. With that said, here are the top five on this year’s list.
The aviation industry is quite fascinating. There are codes and secrets that only flight attendants and pilots know about, and random facts that are only familiar to those who are in or work for the industry.
But, there are more important things to know, including terms that can help you as a traveler, even if you don’t fly that often. Let’s take a look at each one.
The business class industry has been booming with the debut of exquisite seats and lounges that are better than ever—from United’s latest Polaris Lounge to Air France’s new Business Class Lounge in Paris, to Emirates’ upgraded business class and Qatar’s redesigned Qsuite.
And every year, airlines are recognized for their best amenities in various business class categories, including seats, airport lounge, in-flight catering, lounge dining and in-flight amenities. Here’s who made it to this year’s top ten in each of those categories, and who won the overall World’s Best Business Class Airline Award.
In 2016, Airbus announced a new airplane and interior concept design for the A330neo series. And now, we will soon be able to set flight on the A330-900neo, a wide-body, long-haul jet designed to seat about 287 travelers throughout three cabins. (For those who may be wondering, “neo” is short for “new engine option,” which uses less fuel compared to similar aircrafts.)
This variant of the A330neo series features the new Airspace interior design, LED mood lighting, and more space in the overhead bins, which will make you feel like you truly are inside a modern-day spaceship. Plus, the A330-900neo will make even less noise than the previous A330s. Soon, we may have cabins that are so quiet we’ll forget we’re flying!
Skytrax awards are one of the most prestigious awards an airline can be nominated for and ultimately win. Singapore Airlines has not only won the best overall airline in the world, but has also received awards in several first class categories, including best first class airline and best first class seat. It shouldn’t be a surprise, given that the airline just debuted a brand new first class suite that is truly a mini-luxury hotel in the sky.
Aside from best first class airline and best first class seat, other first class categories include airport lounge, in-flight catering, lounge dining and in-flight amenities. Here’s who made it to this year’s top ten in each of those categories.

Star Alliance partners such as United, SWISS and Air France have recently opened up some spectacular lounges that we wouldn’t mind spending some time in.
