Time to update last year’s rankings, based on reader reports to Slipped Disc.

Here’s the 2018 roll of shame:

1 Ryanair

Still the unchallenged leader in a shocking field.

2 Vueling

Also known as appalling

3 British Airways

Rising levels of callousness and misinformation

4 United Airlines

Inhuman.

 

5 American Airlines

Kafkaesque ineptitude

6 KLM

Dumb, dumber, dumbest

7 ANA Japan

They have a thing about violas

8 WestJet

Hates cellos

9 Brussels Airlines

EU gotta be kidding

10 Alitalia

Unkind to antique instruments

      At one time, it was the Karajan Airlines, I am very sure.

        While smaller than Karajan Airlines, there’s Harding Airways.

    2. David R Osborne says:

      Qantas

    Hilarious compilation of pianist/conductors! Barenboim, hands down (or, perhaps, up)
