Regardless of whether it is a long-haul flight or a short journey, a team of cabin crew can either break or make your flying experience. Skytrax World Airlines Awards have taken into consideration the various ‘hard’ and ‘soft’ service traits such as attention, efficiency, attitude and friendliness etc.
So, who are your favourite cabin crew(s)? For us, it is always Singapore Airlines. But they aren’t the only ones who provide good service.
