After seeing Singapore Changi named world’s best airport back in March, the island-state’s flag carrier is now being hailed as travelers’ favorite airline in the world. Singapore Airlines takes first place in the list of world’s best airlines compiled by Tripadvisor’s algorithm, which takes into account the quantity and quality of user reviews. Singapore Airlines also wins Best First Class and Best Economy for its cabins.
