SAN FRANCISCO, Calif.
- Virgin America today took the top honors for the fifth consecutive year as "Best Domestic Airline" in the prestigious Travel + Leisure World's Best Awards readers' survey.
The annual Travel + Leisure World's Best Awards highlight the results of a survey that captures the opinions of Travel + Leisure readers on their favorite travel experiences.* In this 17th annual readers' survey, airlines were rated by Travel + Leisure readers in four categories, including: cabin comfort, in-flight service, customer service and value. Virgin America was ranked as the top domestic airline for the fifth consecutive year. Select survey results, including Virgin America's win, were profiled on NBC's TODAY Show this morning and are now featured on www.TravelandLeisure.com/worldsbest.
"We are honored to have won top marks from Travel + Leisure readers for the fifth year in a row," said Virgin America President and CEO David Cush. "There are many awards that rank airlines that are paid or that include only the largest airlines, so it is a real distinction to win the top quality ranking in an independent survey of thousands of some of the most discerning travelers out there. As we mark our fifth year anniversary this summer, this award is a testament to our unique product and the continued dedication of our teammates â who work so hard to elevate every guest experience."
