The Best Airlines for First Class travel - 2016

THE AWARD DETAILS
The Award for the world's "Best First Class Airline" is a coveted Quality distinction that represents passenger satisfaction assessment of the front-line First Class product and staff service standards that airlines provide across the cabin and airport environments. It reflects the typical First Class Quality levels an airline provides, and is not aircraft specific or based on bespoke First Class items that are not widely offered across an airline's fleet. In addition to the all-round Best First class winner, we feature airlines voted Best in Category award winners for First Class.
