The Best Airlines to Fly the Atlantic, Ranked
Blog Around the best airlines to fly in 2018.
Last updated: July 12th 2018
What are the best airlines to fly the Atlantic with? The answer is not as simple as it used to be. In the past, many airlines flew across the pond, but most of them stopped where they started. You’d have a decent choice when flying from London or Paris to New York or Los Angeles, but you’d often be left with just one airline from Brussels or Rome.
Times have changed. Airlines like Norwegian and WOW air offer a huge choice of routes for less than half the price of a standard flight. But are these two low-cost airlines really better than their full-service competitors? Do they offer anything except peanuts and water? Should you book your next transatlantic flight through them?
To find out, I took a closer look at each airline that flies between Europe and North America — including all low-cost carriers — and ranked them based on their products, services, prices and policies.
This year has been a great year for flying. I have visited many countries throughout the world, and flew with many airlines. So far I have been to more than 20 countries and flew with more than 15 different airlines. There are some airlines that perform better on long-haul flights than others.
Last year I wrote an article called: The Best Airlines to Fly The Atlantic, Ranked. This list is about the best airlines to fly the Atlantic in 2018!
The French airline is known for its low prices and high quality service. They often offer a free meal or snack, free drinks and free entertainment during the flight! This year I flew with them three times (to New York, Toronto and Montreal) and they were amazing every single time. All of their planes were new and clean, they had great entertainment systems and the staff was very friendly!
The second airline on the list is Virgin Atlantic. They are also known for their high-quality service, but unfortunately they are often more expensive than Air France. If you can afford it though, go for it! Their service is top notch: meals served on porcelain plates with metal cutlery, a nice selection of movies/series/games etcetera plus USB ports on
Airline Rankings of 2018
The best airline to fly the Atlantic is Turkish Airlines. There are several reasons for this. The first is that the food on board is incredible. It’s also very comfortable. Finally, you get a free stopover in Istanbul on each leg.
The second-best airline to fly the Atlantic is Lufthansa. Lufthansa flies direct from Frankfurt to both San Francisco and Toronto, two important destinations for me, and their seats are more comfortable than those of any other airline. They also have a great magazine called “Lufthansa Magazin,” which I can enjoy while my wife watches movies on her screen.
The third-best airline to fly the Atlantic is United Airlines. While not as good as either of the two above, they still offer a great product considering they’re a legacy carrier flying out of Newark (which is closer to where I live than JFK). It’s worth noting that United offers much better meals when flying from Newark than NYC, which has really started to bother me in recent years.
Best Airline for Overall Customer Service: Delta Airlines
Best Airline for Food (Meal): Turkish Airlines

We have gotten a lot of requests from our readers to write an article about which airline to fly across the Atlantic. We’ve decided to make this article a bit more detailed and look at 3 options that we think are some of the best in the business.
In this blog, we will rank the top 3 airlines based on their quality of service, price and customer satisfaction.
The airline industry is competitive and ever-changing, but there are a few things that remain constant: profit margins are slim, prices are high. It’s not easy to be an airline in 2018.
As I’ve mentioned before, the main reason airlines can’t be more profitable is due to fuel costs. Airlines fuel usage is huge as they run their planes day and night, every day of the week. It’s difficult to lower this cost, so airlines must control other areas of the business in order to make any sort of profit. One way they do this is by controlling their fleet size.
In recent years there have been many mergers between airlines both in the U.S., as well as abroad. Merging two companies allows for two things: removing excess capacity (seats for sale) and savings on labor costs (staff). These mergers have made it possible for airlines to grow their bottom line without adding too many daily flights or seats for sale.
Recently I was asked by a friend to rank my favorite airlines that fly from North America to Europe. As someone who has flown across the Atlantic over 15 times, I thought it would be fun to share my favorites with you all!
Here were my criteria for selecting my top 3:

Turkish Airlines: The Best Airline in Europe
With a solid balance between price and quality, Turkish Airlines is a great choice for international travel.
In 2018, Turkish Airlines was named the best airline in Europe by SkyTrax. It also ranked number five on TripAdvisor’s list of Top 10 Airlines in the World.
Not only does Turkish Airlines provide comfortable seating and friendly customer service, but it also provides some of the best food on flights over 6 hours long.
If you’re someone who loves to eat while traveling, this is definitely an airline you’ll want to consider!
For those who are health-conscious, Turkish Airlines provides options like salmon fillets and grilled vegetables.
Of course, if you’re seeking comfort food when you fly, the airline still has you covered with options like pasta and chicken sandwiches for your enjoyment.
While this is certainly a matter of personal preference, we want to make sure that you are as comfortable as possible when you fly with us.
It may not be the most glamorous job in the world, but it is our duty to make sure that you are safe and comfortable at all times when flying with us. This is why we have decided not to skimp on what the airline industry has already established as fare game: food, drinks and entertainment.
