Which gave a score for some long haul airlines. Its top airlines are Air New Zealand and that is one of my favorites. I haven't been on its other top airlines. These are Singapore Airlines, Etihad Airways and Emirates Airlines. My other favorite airlines did less well. Qantas got 70 percent and Virgin Atlantic got 69 percent. Air New Zealand beat all the airlines with its score 86%. How important is baggage allowance to you? Have you ever had bothersome boarding arrangements? Did you meet very polite airline staff? Do you think you got value for money?

Hi.. I have been on long haul trips quite a few times that's from Abu Dhabi to New York about 12 hrs non stop i guess and that was on the Etihad Airways.The flight was very clean and their service food was also good.Etihad is can be surely recommended. The other airline I flew was the Lufthansa and that was form Frankfurt to Orlando and New York to Frankfurt i flew on the A380 and the flight was good but the service on the flight was just okay not to what I expected.Try avoiding the airline.The experience on the Emirates is also good but i don't know about the long haul flight of Emirates.I should have opted for Emirates instead of Lufthansa.

I like Which, they prove very useful, my ex used to have a Which membership and would use their guides when buying things or travelling. I have never had any experience with long haul trips, the longest I've been on a plane is 4 hours and that's enough. The staff have always been pleasant. I cannot complain at NOT getting value for money because I have always managed to get cheap flight tickets.
