Airlines spend millions these days competing to be the biggest, newest, fastest and boldest, but it appears that most of their efforts have been for nought. After all, what’s the point of trying to impress people when you end up losing out to a carrier practically no one has ever heard of?
Palmair (yes, I can see the blank looks appearing on your faces) has just been voted the fourth-best airline in the world. The award—given by consumer magazine Which? means that Palmair has come out ahead of big names such as British Airways and Virgin Atlantic.
And what has given little Palmair the edge over other bigger, richer competitors? Well, it could be the fact that they only fly one plane (a 34-year-old plane at that!) Or maybe it’s because they only carry about 60 000 passengers a year. All in all, it sounds like a pretty exclusive way to fly.
