If you are a frequent flyer you probably have some horror stories. You may even think that your airliner is the worst in the world.
However Skytrax Global Airline Ratings compiled a list of the worst 15 airlines in the worst. None from Canada made the list.
Here is the Skytrax Global Airline Ratings list
15. US Airways
14. Frontier Airlines
13. United Airlines
10. Pakistan International Airlines
8. China Eastern Airlines
7. Lion Air
5. Spirit Airlines
4. Nepal Airlines
3. Pegasus Airlines
2. Bulgaria Air
And the worst airline is...
1. Air Koryo
This North Korean state-owned carrier is the only airline to receive a 1 star overall rating from Skytrax airline rating system. That easily puts Air Koryo in the #1 spot for worst airline for product and customer service in the world. The amount of extremely poor 1 and 2 star ratings in the Skytrax categories are too numerous to name but here’s just a few: check-in service, transfer service, arrival assistance, comfort, language skills, and staff response to request all the the lowest ranking of 1 star. Air Koryo was also banned from flying within the EU in 2006 due to safety and maintenance concerns. In 2010 they were allowed to fly certain Tu-204s aircraft into the EU after improved safety features, however all other aircraft in the company’s fleet remain banned.
