air travel stress Editor-in-Chief Geoffrey Thomas has appeared on Channel 7’s Weekend Sunrise to discuss the long delays at airports impacting Australian travellers in Sydney and Melbourne.

Mr Thomas referenced the overall shortage of staff and the impact of COVID with airlines reporting up to 30 per cent of rostered staff calling in sick with COVID.

The situation is global and far worse in Europe.

About was developed to provide everyone in the world a one-stop shop for everything related to airlines, formed by a team of aviation editors, who have forensically researched nearly every airline in the world.

Our rating system is rated from one to seven stars on safety – with seven being the highest ranking. Within each airline, you will find the country of origin, airline code, booking URL and seat map information. The rating system takes into account a number of different factors related to audits from aviation’s governing bodies, lead associations, as well as the airlines, own safety data. Every airline has a safety rating breakdown so you can see exactly how they rate.

Over 230 of the airlines on the site that carry 99 per cent of the world’s passengers have a product rating. Given that low-cost, regional and full-service carriers are so different we have constructed a different rating system for each which can be found within each airline.
