The national carrier scored 83.98 per cent for on-time arrival rate, 8.01 per cent for cancellation and 3/5 scores for meals, inflight entertainment, seat comfort, and staff service.

The research was carried out by analysing 62 of the biggest airlines in the world on factors such as their on-time arrival rates, cancellation records, customer ratings and free luggage offerings. But only 50 airlines made it into the index.


The neighbour's national carrier, Singapore Airlines recorded one of the lowest cancellation rates over the year 2021 at just 0.19 per cent, paired with a solid on-time arrival rate of 86.04 per cent.

The airline ranks as the best international airline, is also one of only five airlines on this list to record 4/5 and above across meals, inflight entertainment, seat comfort, and staff service.

The cherry on top is free checked baggage allowance of up to 30kg on domestic and international flights.

The runner-up for the highest ranked international airline is All Nippon Airways (ANA) with exceptional on-time arrival rate of 89.14 per cent and scores a triumphant 5/5 for staff service (alongside 4/5s for meals, entertainment, and seat comfort).

ANA also offers the largest free checked baggage allowance of all airlines on this list at 46kg for international flights.

Part of the last 10 airlines is AirAsia, sitting at number 42, thanks to flyer's experience.

In addition, Wings Air received 1/5 ratings for meals and entertainment and 2/5 ratings for seat comfort and staff service.

Flydubai ranks better than the two Indonesian airlines with its on-time arrival and cancellation rates at 79.05 per cent and 6.17 per cent respectively.
