Observation Deck: 2017 Skytrax Airline Awards

Episode 59 of the Saverocity Observation Deck brings what was at times a heated conversation about the 2017 Skytrax Airline Awards announced at Paris Air Show 2017. 


Joe Cheung celebrated his anniversary, which left Joe Cortez and I to truly dig in from an #avgeek perspective. 

But before we dug into the 2017 Skytrax awards, we learned about Joe’s adventure to Amsterdam, hosted by KLM, but oddly didn’t really cover his practices when he’s hostedperhaps that’s for another day.  

The Skytrax awards cover a bunch, all 4 of the best cabins, the best low cost carrier, cleanliness, regional, and most. I think you’ll be surprised with some of our reactions. In fact, when Joe Cheung gave an advance listen, he was awfully inquisitive about a couple of mine, which makes me think I need to get flying! 

One award that I couldn’t just leave at my comments on the podcast, was the Skytrax Best Business Class award winner of Qatar Airways, I truly believe some of these awards were perception over reality.

This was a long episode at over 1 hour, 12 minutes, but we leave you with some humor at the end, the shawarma variety.
