The Best Airlines for International Travel

List Criteria: Includes all airlines that make international trips from one continent to another

List of the best airlines for international travel around the world, or to and from the US. These airlines are known for their affordable tickets, plentiful and flexible flight times, top rate customer service, and many other perks. Large airlines like KLM, Virgin, and Lufthansa have long ruled the skies, but smaller companies like El-Al and Aer Lingus have gained popularity in recent decades due to their cheaper tickets and more pleasant flight experiences. However, many smaller companies have limited options, flying to fewer or inconvenient airports, or they offer less frequent flights.
