Swiss Airlines have had a longstanding reputation for courtesy and efficiency, and so far their reputation remains solid topping some of the best airlines around. All the expected luxury appointments and services are present but for those wishing for a bit more, your inner techno- geek will appreciate too-cool features that are all too entertaining to ignore. For one, your video monitor can display flight data, such as air speed, distance flown and distance remaining. While such technology has been around for years, Swiss, always innovative, has upped the ante: two onboard cameras let you watch the world in front of the aircraft as well as below it.
Rolls-Royce aircraft engines are legendary, and you'd swear the company had an influence on British Airways cabins. BA's luxurious first-class demi cabins multitask to serve as workspaces, dens, and even places to stretch and sleep. Awake time can be spent viewing many video options or dining on your own schedule, not the crews. As a thoughtful touch, evening and late-night flights offer dining in elegant land lounges before the flight so you can maximize your sleep time in the air. In operation since shortly after World War I, British Airways self-proclamation as The World's Favorite Airline holds true for many travelers, and with a modern mission statement that aims, to be the best and most successful airline in the world, British Airlines tops the list.
Founded in 1920 in Queensland as Queensland and Northern Territory Aerial Services, Qantas is Australia's largest airline for domestic and international travel, widely considered to be the world's leading long distance airline. Known as "The Flying Kangaroo", Qantas flies to 54 destinations in Australia alone, while servicing 65 domestic and 27 international destinations in total; they were even the first airline to offer a nonstop flight from Melbourne to Los Angeles in 1999. While flying international first class on Qantas you get to enjoy extra-wide sheepskin beds that flatten completely and an ottoman so you can even entertain a companion in your suite while mid-flight. You'll also get a luxury amenity kit that includes perks like skincare products, an eye mask, and a pajama set. In 2008 Qantas achieved the world record for commercial engine performance with 42,019 hours on-wing (which amounts to 1,000 return trips to the UK), using a Qantas General Electric CF6-80C2 engine on a B747-400 aircraft for nine years.
