The awards, announced this morning at the Farnborough International Air Show, are the results of the World Airline Survey, which is conducted annually by the prestigious British market research firm, SkyTrax. It is the sixth consecutive year that an airline belonging to LATAM Airlines Group (LAN or TAM) has been awarded first place in this category.
