Global Traveler Magazine celebrates winners of its Reader Survey Awards

Global Traveler Magazine recently held a banquet celebrating the winners of its seventh annual Reader Survey Awards in New York, reports SkyClub News.

At the ceremony, Virgin Atlantic Airways was honored for winning the "Best Airline for Premium Class" prize. Passengers in Virgin Atlantic's premium cabin sit in seats that are 21 inches wide, dine on china tableware and enjoy complimentary liquor and fresh fruit. Other perks include a stylish amenity kit, dedicated check-in, priority boarding, free newspaper and priority baggage claim service.

British Airways took top marks in the business class category, earning accolades for its lounge with a la carte meal service, free wi-fi and massages in the Elemis Spa. People traveling in BA's business class cabin can sleep on lie-flat seats with a memory foam headrest and watch TV and movies on a screen equipped with a free noise-cancelling headset. Meal service includes gourmet dishes as well as free snacks from the Club kitchen.

Swiss Airlines and Korean Airlines won awards for the seat design in their first and business class cabins, respectively, while OpenSkies won the prize for top all-business class carrier.
