    So it seems Qatar Airways has pipped Singapore Airlines, Asiana, Cathay Pacific and Thai Airways to win the Skytrax Airline of the Year award:

    Interesting, to me, as I just flew my first set of flights on QR, having been a regular on SQ (all in Y), and frankly, I don't buy it.

    QR's hard product is good, and in some cases on par with SQ, but I didn't enjoy the cabin service. I found the transit in DOH, which I guess 90+% of their passengers experience, sub par, and the overall experience is no SQ!

    Thoughts?

    It may also be that Qatar Airways deliver the goods and deserves the reward.

    How?

    Also, there is a tendency for these kinds of awards to give them to different winners each year.
