The Best Business Class Seats are Angled, Concorde Room the Nicest Lounge, and Other Gut Busters
I feel I’ll have come throughout the most ludicrous awards ever given out in journey, the 2017 Business Traveller Awards granted at a Monday luncheon in London. Many of the choices are merely self-refuting.
As you peer into the alternate universe of those awards, keep in mind that Panasonic apparently paid for this.
The Waldorf Astoria New York is chosen as the finest enterprise lodge in North American. It isn’t even open. They’ve closed it for renovation for three years. And now that it’s owned by Chinese conglomerate Anbang the President of the United States stopped staying there for safety causes (earlier than it closed).

The world’s finest frequent flyer program is… British Airways Executive Club. Huh?
- Fuel surcharges on awards
- Super costly premium cabin lengthy haul awards (with awards priced on distance and top quality 4 occasions as many miles as coach)
- Few elite advantages not prolonged by way of oneworld standing to their Gold members
But then once more British Airways is ranked Best Short Haul service. After they stopped serving complimentary meals and even scorching water and cost $6 for further robust tea.

And they’re given Best Airport Lounge for the London Heathrow Concorde Room which is admittedly fairly a poor lounge. It ranks in the survey above Cathay Pacific’s The Pier top quality lounge. Qatar’s Al Mourjan Business Lounge in Doha, ranked third, isn’t even Qatar’s finest lounge in Doha. Air France’s La Premier lounge in Paris and Lufthansa First Class Terminal in Frankfurt don’t even make the record.

Hilton Honors is chosen as the finest lodge loyalty program, presumably from an awards program centered round frequent enterprise vacationers but it’s the program with the least formal advantages.
Emirates is chosen as having the world’s finest top quality, which is a stretch however the actual laugher is that the world’s fourth finest top quality supposedly belongs to British Airways (fourth weakest may be believable). Meanwhile Emirates is claimed to have the world’s third finest enterprise class when the majority of its fleet options angled seats, not even totally flat beds.
Singapore Airlines wins cabin employees and additionally finest economic system class, which I’d purchase, they provide above common legroom and foot bars (and cup holders).

American Airlines wins Best North American Airline.

Oddly easyJet beats out Southwest, JetBlue, and Norwegian for finest low value airline (and Southwest’s and JetBlue’s prices aren’t actually that low).
We’ll quickly see airways and inns touting their accomplishment.
