9) United Airlines

Due to a few highly publicized and unfortunate incidents, United has been in the spotlight lately – not in a good way. It’s not news that United Airlines’ reputation has been on a steady decline in the last few months. Regardless, it’s important to give credit where credit is due. Although United has struggled in the customer service realm, they remain hands above many other airlines when it comes to safety. United scored 7 out of 7 in safety ratings, meaning they are FAA endorsed and have met the strict requirements of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). United services destinations in the Americas, Africa, Europe, Asia, and Australia. United provides full meals and complimentary beer and wine on long-haul international flights. Personal seat-back screens with on-demand are provided on most aircrafts; however, some have shared cabin screens. Prices are comparable to Delta for oversea flights.
