If you have travelled by Kingfisher Airlines, I am sure you must have encountered more than just pretty Air-Hostesses – atleast, I have. The level of service and seating comfort is one of the best in the world.
Surprisingly, I find Indian air travel (even low cost carriers) much better than what I have encountered in America, especially the leg-room space and service.
Indian carrier, Kingfisher Airlines has been given 5 star Airline Ranking, one of the only 6 to get that status by Skytrax, which has been instituted by Skytrax, the world’s leading, independent airline research and air travel information organization. Kingfisher Airlines was awarded 5 star status for both domestic and international travel in Kingfisher First and Kingfisher Class.
The 6 carriers that have been conferred 5 star airline status are:
- Asiana Airlines
- Cathay Pacific
- Kingfisher Airlines
- Malaysia Airlines
- Qatar Airways
- Singapore Airlines
What is surprising is no other Indian Airliner comes even near to Kingfisher. No other Indian Airliner has got even 4 star rating, while only Air India managed to get 3 star rating.
Here is what Skytrax has to say about Kingfisher Airlines:
“The greatest attribute behind 5-Star status is an airline’s ability to deliver the combination of Product and Service. We are focused on recognizing airlines whose staff deliver a true 5-Star standard of service delivery, both at the Airport and Onboard. The renewal of the 5-Star ranking to Kingfisher Airlines reaffirms its standing as the only airline in India – and one of only 6 airlines in the world – which has been awarded this status.”
Kingfisher is no doubt the best Airline in India, but what about Worst ?
Which Indian Airline do you think is the worst ? My vote goes to “Air India Express” :)
