Qatar Airways was chosen to lead a select list of 22 international airlines based on on-time percentage, low cost to check bags, and average age of airline fleet.

The study highlighted Qatar Airways' staggering on-time percentage, which "other airlines strive to reach," as a major factor in the final tally.

The CBS/WanderBat study also made reference to Qatar Airways' continued growth and renowned 5-star service and amenities, including Giorgio Armani kits with fragrances, earplugs, eye masks, socks and lotions for business and first class passengers.

Qatar Airways was recently named "World's Best Business Class" and "Best Middle Eastern Airline" by Skytrax, as well as "World's Best Airline" in 2011 and 2012. Recognised travel information epxerts Skift also recently named Qatar Airways "Best Economy Long-Haul Experience".
