Flying high at the very top of the list is Singapore Airlines

Malaysia's neighbour recorded one of the lowest cancellation rates over the last year, at just 0.19%. 

Paired with a reliable on-time arrival rate of 86.04%, Singapore Airlines is also one of the only airlines on the list to record 4/5 or above across all four categories, such as: in-flight entertainment, meals, seat comfort, and staff service.

Comparatively, Indonesian-based airline Lion Air sits at the bottom of the list

It touts a disappointing 42.27% on-time arrival rate alongside a shocking 34.43% cancellation rate, which, for context, means one-third of their flights had been cancelled over the year 2021.

The airline scored a mere 1/5 on meals and in-flight entertainment, and 2/5 on staff service and seat comfort.
