“Clearly Boeing has got its own issues, but it is a tremendous company that’s helped build the world for the last 100 years and I would never write them off, they still build great airplanes,” Kelly said.

He added that Boeing’s 737 MAX, was attracting robust demand.

It acquired leasing giants ILFC in 2014 and GECAS in 2012. General Electric, which owned GECAS has a 45.4 per cent stake in AerCap which traces its roots back to Guinness Peat Aviation founded by Tony Ryan in 1975.

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.
