As jet engines screamed from the Farnborough airfield and thousands of visiting aviation geeks explored the airshow, smiling flight attendants dressed in brightly colored uniforms stepped to the stage as each award was announced. The international airline, based in Dubai, won the top honors at Tuesday's Skytrax World Airline Awards ceremony at the Farnborough International Airshow in England.

The awards run the gamut from 73 categories from best economy class onboard catering to best airline staff to best seats to best cabin cleanliness. CNN reports a list of other prestigious airlines that were also part of the top 10 best airlines this 2016 and were named as:

1. Emirates
2. Qatar Airways
3. Singapore Airlines
4. Cathay Pacific
5. ANA All Nippon Airways
6. Etihad Airways
7. Turkish Airlines
8. EVA Air
9. Qantas Airways
10. Lufthansa

According to Airline Quality, this is the fourth time Emirates has won this top prize in the awards history. The airline also won the World's Best Inflight Entertainment award. Emirates improved its position across a range of awards categories performing well in First, Business and Economy Class survey sections and achieving a top-10 finish in the World's Best Cabin Staff category. "The Middle East airlines have continued to dominate," Plaisted said after the ceremony. "Virgin America continues dominating on the customer side in North America. Turkish Airlines is a big favorite."

Sir Tim Clark, President of Emirates, expressed that they feel honoured to be recognised by the prestigious Skytrax awards. He said that Emirates has always put their customers at the heart of everything that they do, and that they work hard to deliver the very best experience possible to their customers at every touchpoint, every day, all around the world.

He also expressed that they listen very carefully to their customers, and relentlessly challenge themselves to deliver and exceed expectations.  "The fact that these awards are based on the direct feedback from passengers is gratifying and wonderful recognition for all of the hard work that's gone into creating the Emirates experience" said Sir Tim Clark, President of Emirates.
