Anticipation was high for this year’s 2014-2015 Passenger Choice Awards, held last night at the Oregon Convention Center Ballroom.
Following a lively Education Day where ideas about the passenger experience were exchanged, EXPO attendees were eager to find out the night’s big winners. Talk around the exciting rivalry between Gulf carriers Emirates and Qatar – in no less than six categories – was abound as guests made their way from the red carpet to their tables.
Hosted by BBC’s Rajan Datar, the evening kicked off with light-hearted jokes about the airlines around a snappy audio-visual display. Before any of the winners were announced, Datar asked for a “moment of silence” for the losers.
It was Emirates that stole the show, sweeping seven awards and nabbing a trophy for each category it was nominated in, including winning Best IFE User Interface.
