Etihad surprises the industry by withdrawing from the rating system

As reported by ETB News today, Etihad Airways has formally announced its decision to withdraw from Skytrax, including Skytrax World Airline Awards and the Skytrax Audit, amidst a disagreement regarding the way airlines are rated.

  A statement from Etihad said the decision was made to leave the aviation industry’s biggest awards scheme after the airline carried out a review of the ratings criteria and measurement of the Skytrax Airline Rating System.   The move has come as a major surprise as just last year, the airline praised Skytrax as “a global benchmark for airline excellence because they go straight to the source – the traveller,” now sparking debate in the industry over the value of such award systems, The National reported.   Although the airline has not elaborated further on its decision, it stressed that the measurement of customer satisfaction and feedback is important to Etihad Airways with the airline undertaking comprehensive monthly industry research and surveys to monitor customer satisfaction in order to continually improve its products and services.   Aero Travel is an authorised sales agent of Etihad Airlines and acknowledges the huge part Etihad has played in keeping the Australian marketplace competitive. While there may be mixed feelings about the low-price Coral Economy class, we have heard nothing but praise from our customers flying in the award-winning Diamond First class and/or Pearl Business class, both of which are very attractively priced and offer good value for money.
