United Airlines has been voted the best North American Airline in Asia, at the recent Business Travellers Asia-Pacific Travel awards. Its is the eighth consecutive year that United has taken out this prestigious award.
Personally I think United along with the other US Carriers still have a long way to go to get close to the comfort and service provided by the likes of Qantas, Singapore Airlines, Emirates, but their new cabins are heading in the right direction, I hope to see more from them in the future.
