AirAsia Wins

  1. you know how “useful” the list is when leading airline in asia is MH (let’s pretend they’re better than SQ/CX/NH), leading first class in asia is actually KE (that doesn’t have a door), leading airport in South America is that 4 hour check-out wait time place known as LIM, leading airport in north america is that delay prone place known as ORD, and leading award program is Emirates that isn’t part of any alliance

  2. Please do an investigation on this. Private companies such as hotels pay large sums of money to be considered, then they mysteriously win, usually second tier surprising winners who post that they won in their advertisements . Are there travel agents who actually vote, or is this an auction and a scam? I really would like to see an analysis, suspect it would be an expose
