Kayak has announced the results of its first Travel Awards — including the winner of Best Airline in the world. There were six categories and the winners were determined by consumer reviews which were collected by Kayak and its affiliates.

The superstar of the awards was Japan Airlines who won first place in five out of six categories. The airline won Best Airline Entertainment, Best Airline Boarding, Best Airline Food, Best Airline Comfort, and Best Overall Airline.

A recent review on Kayak by a satisfied customer says: “Crew was attentive, food tasted great, the whole experience wasn’t anything like the American style companies that try to shake you down for every penny and still get ripped off.”

Asian airlines were amongst the top-rated airlines in Kayak’s travel awards. Qantas, an Australian airline, also placed in Kayak’s rankings.

Here are the 2019 Best Overall Airlines based on the Kayak Travel Awards.

  1. Japan Airlines
  2. ANA
  3. EVA Air
  4. Singapore Airlines
  5. Asiana Airlines
  6. Korean Air
  7. Air New Zealand
  8. Bangkok Airlines
  9. Thai Airways
  10. Cathay Pacific
