Among oneworld members flying high in The Trazees’ individual airline categories, American Airlines took two awards – as Favorite International Airline and Favorite Airline Website – while Qatar Airways was honoured as Favorite Airline in the Middle East for the third year running.
Reader nominations were collected December 2017 to March 2018 via an online ballot on Trazee Travel. For full details, see trazeetravel.com
