Agree completely, LAX is a nightmare. Weaving traffic with numerous traffic lights and pedestrian crossings on the landside. Cramped spaces between terminal piers on the airside causing ground delays. Connecting from a domestic airline to a different international airline can be a nightmare because you have to come out and go back into your respective terminals back through security again.
But, the silver lining in the cloud is this airport is beautiful to fly out of ON TIME. Rare weather delays compared to other airports.

The operational issues at T5 were cleared up shortly after the openning, and services are now going smoothly. Just teh rest of the airport to sort out now.

I had very very poor service from EK not only one but three times! I've flown Ek from KUL to DXB, to AMS and LHR.

Cannot be denied that SQ is good, but QR needs to do many more works to be at par with SQ, they are far behind, dont judge them by the Skytax ratings. Skytrax ratings are not always correct. These ratings are based on the overall general performance, not by each flight etc. QR is comparable with Thai I felt.

Moreover, this is topic is bout best and worst. How could I write out all the airlines i've flown which some are not considered Best/Worst. Make some sense.

Worst airline : Air India, very unprofessional staff and crew, their 747-400 Boeing looks nice from outside but dirty inside, uncomfortable seats, minimal service and commodities
(I took a London UK to Chicago flight with them last year because they were quiet cheap) that was the first time and the last I fly with them!


Best airlines : Emirates, British Airways, United Airlines (except when they loose my luggage ), Air Algerie.
