Thanks for that...but

That still doesn't tell me if they are an independent company, not relying on money from the very airlines they endorse.

They certainly know how to keep it a secret.

For the airports:

The Airport of the Year study is the world's largest, independent Passenger survey of airport standards. Skytrax do not charge airports to be included in the survey, and the results are not based on a limited or finite choice of airports. Survey interviews covered more than 150 airports, and predominantly represent passengers international travel experiences.

And for the airlines:

These independent Awards honour outstanding Product and Service Excellence for across the air travel experience. A true mark of airline Quality Achievement, SKYTRAX AWARDS are the result of the most comprehensive analysis of product and service standards.

Of course, they could lie Ninja
