Global Traveler Publisher and CEO Francis X Gallagher said: “Congratulations tooneworld for its seventh consecutive win as Best Airline Alliance.  It’s clear the alliance’s 14 member airlines are among some of our reader’s favourites, as the airlines themselves are award winners.  When the power of all of these superb airlines comes together as part of the oneworld alliance, travel is transformed.”
