Survey: Troubled Kingfisher remains India’s favorite airline


MUMBAI, India – In spite of the mounting troubles and the recent flight cancellations, Kingfisher continues to remain the favourite airline in the country, an honour which it shares with Jet Airways this year, according to an annual airline and air travel survey released today.

While Vijay Mallya-promoted Kingfisher is the best airline for in-flight entertainment, food/beverages, in-flight service, in-flight maintenance (cabin lighting, cleanliness, seat comfort, leg room), Naresh Goyal-headed Jet leads in ground handling and landing/take-off quality, it said.

India’s largest low-cost carrier IndiGo comes next at No 2, said the survey by travel advisory portal TripAdvisor.
