Which Airplanes Have the Best Inflight Services?

These new Top 10 ratings by AirlineRatings.com make one thing clear: The experience of flying on U.S. airplanes could be dramatically improved.

Flying on airplanes in economy coach can be a pleasant or highly uncomfortable experience, especially on longer flights. Flying in business class or first class guarantees more comfort, but are you going to get what you pay for? The editors at the website AirlineRatings.com looked at all of the variables in-depth, from passenger seating, to meals, to the liquors offered on the menu. Released today, their ratings comprise four distinct categories: first class, business class, premium economy, and long-haul economy.

What surprised us

We were surprised to discover that not a single U.S. airline made it onto the list of top 10 cabins in any category! And in first class, Lufthansa and Swiss were the only European airlines that made the cut, which also included Al Nippon Airways, Emirates (the largest airline of the United Arab Emirates), and Etihad Airways (the second-largest airline of the United Arab Emirates), among others.

What didn’t surprise us

In the business class category, as well as premium economy, both Air France and Virgin Australia/Atlantic made the list–but they didn’t make the top 10 for long-haul economy. Air New Zealand made it into all three categories.
