Travel and Leisure names Virgin America best domestic, Singapore best international carriers

The prestigious Travel and Leisure "World's Best" awards were announced today, covering everything from best hotels to best islands to best airlines. Not surprisingly, no legacy carriers were in the top domestic airlines list -- as we expected, Virgin America and JetBlue were the winners. And how couldn't they be? With in-seat video, internet and hipsters on their side it's hard to compete.

On the international side, Singapore Airlines wins once again, with all-star global service including private rooms on their delightful A380's.

The full list of top contenders in the domestic category:
  1. Virgin America
  2. JetBlue
  3. Midwest
  4. WestJet
  5. Southwest
  6. Sun Country
  7. Hawaiian
  8. Frontier
  9. Alaskan
  10. USA 3000.
Check out the international rankings after the jump.

Top international airlines raked as such:
  1. Singapore Airlines
  2. Qatar
  3. Emirates
  4. Japan Airlines
  5. Virgin Atlantic
  6. All Nippon Airways
  7. Cathay Pacific
  8. Thai Airways
  9. Air New Zealand
  10. Asiana
Airlines were ranked on a number of factors (and we do love it when they publish methodology,) from cabin comfort, in-flight service, customer service and value. You can read the entire list here.
