Ryanair passengers, however, were not so happy.

Dubai-based Emirates, the world's largest carrier for international passengers, is among the cleanest airlines globally, a newly released survey said.

According to a survey by the UK-based Which Travel, almost all the passengers who flew with Air New Zealand (97 per cent), Singapore Airlines (96 per cent), Emirates (95 per cent), Cathay Pacific (94 per cent) and Swiss (94 per cent) told Which? they found the cleanliness on board to be good.

Meanwhile, two-thirds of Easyjet passengers rated the cleanliness as 'good', 'very good' or 'excellent'. This went up to three in four passengers for those who flew British Airways.

Most airlines were highly rated for cleanliness in this year's airlines survey of almost 8,000 passengers, with 81 per cent of passengers saying it was good or excellent. Ryanair passengers, however, were not so happy. Fewer than half said the same thing. A quarter of Ryanair passengers went as far as to say cleanliness on flights was poor, it said.
