At our Newark Airport parking company, we’re constantly sharing stories about our airline experiences. Recently, Business Insider decided to determine the best airlines in the world. The ranking system that the website used was based on two factors: “an enjoyable experience in the plane, and timely departure and arrival.” They devised a rating score of 100 possible points, then examined major international airlines and their economy class flights.
