There are many things to keep in mind when planning a trip or getaway. Luckily, today we have it very easy when choosing destinations, beaches, tourist attractions and hotels thanks to the rankings that the different specialized travel companies are offering us. For example, TripAdvisor has been making lists for ten years through the opinions and comments of its own users, with the intention that we are better informed in making travel decisions. Of course, until this year it had never focused on airlines, which we must also choose carefully, taking into account what we expect from them: punctuality, good treatment by staff, entertainment during the trip, good price ...
