Air Canada has been named the best airline in North America for the second year in a row at the Skytrax World Airline Awards, which are voted on by travelers around the world. 

The company took to Twitter to announce and celebrate their victory but were met with a lot of responses from Canadians who don't agree with the award at all. 

This is the seventh time in the past nine years that Air Canada has taken home this particular award, but despite that Canadians still don't agree that it is deserved. 

Their reactions to the news on Twitter range from shock to disagreement to utter disbelief. 

A lot of people are also citing the Air Canada Facebook page in their tweets, mentioning that the community feed is full of negative reviews from customers who have vowed never to fly with the airline again. 

According to them, those kinds of reviews say more about how people feel about Air Canada than winning the votes at the Skytrax awards does. 

None the less there are still a number of people who have absolutely no problems with the airline and are supporting and congratulating them online. 

Air Canada isn't the only Canadian company to take home a prize at the awards this year. Air Transat was named World's Best Leisure Airline, while West-Jet won the award for North America's Best Low-Cost Airline.
