Qatar Ranks First for Service With CEO Taking Aim at Blockade - Bloomberg

Qatar Ranks First for Service With CEO Taking Aim at Blockade - Bloomberg:

"Qatar, the Arab state hurt by a Saudi-led campaign to isolate it over ties to Iran, can take solace in the fact that it’s state-owned airline is once again the world’s top-ranked carrier. Qatar Airways reclaimed the No. 1 spot in this year’s Skytrax awards, a coveted list of the leading 100 airlines announced on the second day of the Paris Air Show. Qatar unseated Emirates, the largest long-haul airline, which slipped to second. The rankings are based on an annual passenger survey. Akbar al Baker, Doha-based Qatar Air’s chief executive officer, used the platform to make an impromptu speech in which he condemned the blockade of Qatar, which he had previously likened to the Soviet siege of West Berlin after World War II."
