A Look at 2017 World’s Most and Least Reliable Airlines Revealed
We looked at airline performance last year regarding the percentage of flights delayed/ canceled, the average delay wait as well as safety and customer rankings to determine what airline travelers should be using next year.Here are a few of the winners and losers from our research –
- Go with GoJet – The North American airline topped the list with only 5.74% of flights delayed across a single month, and the lowest delay waiting time of just 33 minutes.
- Up in the Air: Both Air China and Air Asia came out as the two worst airlines, with 7.1% of Air China flights canceled, and 43% of Air Asia flights being delayed for just under an hour on average.
- The Big Guns – Airlines like Emirates (6th), KLM (7th) and Lufthansa (10th) performed well in contrast with KLM’s subsidiary Air France (38th) and Virgin Atlantic(35th).
Get Going travel insurance designed the following graph to showcase the big winners and losers from this year as well as showing the best and worst airlines in a ranked table.
Collected while Hurricane Irma occurred, the data was cross-referenced from airlineratings.com, flightstats.com, flightaware.com, and caa.co.uk for 44 airlines in September 2017.
Brooke Tucker, Get Going spokesperson said to The Scope Weekly in an email statement, “The recent spate of flight delays, computer hacking and airlines going bust are just some of the things UK travelers have had to put up over the last few months. People heading off on a winter break need the reassurance that things will go according to plan when they book their flight. ” We want travelers and consumers to be confident in the choices that they make, and this research highlights how some airlines far outweigh others, but there is always a chance that things can go wrong; the recent case of Monarch going bust is one of many things that we were unable to predict.”
