When it comes to air travel, who can you really rely on? The travel website Wanderbat has ranked the world’s airlines by reliability, giving us insight on who you can trust for flight performance and more.

When you book a flight, you book it expecting you’ll arrive at your chosen destination on time, that your checked luggage will also arrive with young that you’ll be safe while you travel. The truth is, some airlines are just more reliable than others.

Wanderbat, when considering how to rank the airlines, looked at several criteria. Their rating system looked at an airline’s average flight performance (including how often flights are on time, delayed or cancelled), the airline’s checked baggage allowance and corresponding fees, plus the average age of a fleet. Newer fleets are believed to be more comfortable, cleaner and quieter.

Who came out on top?

Here are the world’s top 15 reliable airlines (starting with the most reliable):

  1. Qatar Airlines
  2. Emirates
  3. China Eastern
  4. Singapore Airlines
  5. China Southern Airlines
