No. 18 Swiss International Air Lines

19 of 32

The Swiss are nothing if not consistent and reliable, and
thus they remain at the No. 18 ranking from last year. Those Swiss wines,
cheese, and chocolates in economy, along with a 32-inch pitch seat? They’re
still there. But what has changed are the scores—they’re all a bit better in
every category. You’d expect nothing less from the Swiss. —Everett Potter
