(CMR) TipAdvisor has named Cayman Airways Limited (CAL) the “Best Airline in the Caribbean” and a top “Specialty and Leisure Airline” within the entire North America region.
The announcement comes as part of TripAdvisor’s 2019 Travellers’ Choice Awards results for airline categories, issued April 2, 2019. The results identified travellers’ favourite airlines around the globe, with the hallmark of Travellers' Choice award winners being outstanding service, quality and value.
Travellers’ Choice award winners were determined based on the millions of reviews and opinions collected in a single year from TripAdvisor travellers worldwide. In the 17th year of the awards, TripAdvisor has recognised 7,812 properties in 94 countries and eight regions worldwide.
Elsewhere, Japanese airlines JAL and ANA were commended on their food and service, and Brasillian airline Azul and Emirates received kudos for their first-class service in economy. While Air New Zealand dropped six places to No. 8 in the rankings, its premium economy seats were praised for comfortable seats and great food.
US darlings Southwest Airlines stayed in the No. 6 position, a favourite for allowing passengers two checked-in bags included in the ticket price – a very rare thing in the US, and British budget airline Jet2.com was mentioned for its efficiency and generous amount of legroom.
Bryan Saltzburg, president of TripAdvisor Flights said, “The airline industry continues to focus on improving the overall flying experience, and these award-winning carriers are at the forefront. Airlines worldwide recognise this Travellers' Choice award as a huge testament to consumer recognition.”
