Grandma next to them was careless too,mother left the kids to father and was sitting 2 rows in the back and they never came at least to try to make them quiet even when the kids started to kik everywhere licluding the food tray and almost breaks it. Unfortunately the staff never came and try to talk to them about this issue Most of the people including several senior citizens looked angry and frustrated."

Pros: "Premium economy is more worth that the price"

Pros: "The food was good the crew was trying to accommodate"

Pros: "Friendly and helpful"

Cons: "angled flat seats."

Pros: "That I probably won’t have to deal with AA for a while."
Cons: "The boarding process was a joke. No seat assignments until the last second. The front desk personnel would not help us with a seat assignment and said they were “working on it”. I sat down with my wife in the waiting area and observed the front desk personnel joking around with each other for the next 45 minutes before the flight. Very unprofessional and not helpful. Not a good way to represent your airline."

Pros: "On time Cleanliness"
Cons: "The food for people with special needs is horrible Most of the staff has poor communication in English on international flights"

Pros: "Flight time was not bad, not too long"
Cons: "Food options were bad, I offered to pay money for something better, didn't even have an option to pay for better meals, I don't think better meals existed for coach."

Pros: "Superb service from checking (Chicago) to arriving (Kaohsiung) I flew economy and there’s plenty of leg room. Meal selections are better then flying 1st class cross country in the US."

Cons: "The flights were everything I expected and more."

Pros: "Good service and very clean plane."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Although, i booked businesss class l. I had to pay 1000 yen for each flight for seat selection. (They were giving me seats 50C) And no lounge facility either. All i got was 2000 yen and upgrade to J class. I had already paid extra for business class. This is highway robbery. No thanks JAL"

Pros: "What sets JAL apart is the quality of service both on the ground and in the air. As customers, even in economy, no request was too minor to be treated as the most important of the day. Both legs were on time, the meals were excellent, and the chouce of movies was more than adequate. I will fly with JAL again."

Pros: "Free WiFi in flight!"
Cons: "In my email confirmation says Business class tickets but the boarding cards were "J" class which was not Business or economy so we had to fight to get in the lounge. They apologizedon't many times but no compensation, seats were first row but not first class, business, economy, or premium economy. They said it's called "J" class! You still get 3 pcs of luggage and pay business class price! Never JAL again domestic, maybe international or Never ever!"

Pros: "Very good"

Pros: "Great vacation"

Pros: "The crew was excellent, constantly checking in with us to make sure we were okay since we don't eat the airline food."

Pros: "Best and consistent service."

Cons: "Only 30 people were not priority boarding (including me). Not being Japanese makes you a second class citizen on Japan Airlines."

Pros: "Booked the flight on Japanese Airlines and the Jal flight to Japan was fantastic."
Cons: "What I didn't know was the Jal return flight to the US was operated by American Airlines. The flight was packed, my inflight entertainment was broken, my folding table was broken so all my meals had to be held up by my knees , and I had a kicking screaming baby seated behind me keeping me up the whole flight. The crew was very rude and irritated by the full flight so the service was also terrible. Never flying with AA again."

Pros: "They were very generous with food and drinks. It was a pleasant flight."
Cons: "Our seats were uncomfortable. We did not like sitting on the front row three deep. We would have preferred the extra legroom seats we had on the 1st flight"

Cons: "No complain . It’s singapore airlines"

Pros: "Superb service."
Cons: "Meals were average for airlines"

Pros: "Everything. New plane amazing food on a two hour flight Great new entertainment system on the seat back."
Cons: "A little more leg room."

Pros: "Efficient"
Cons: "Better food, better selection movies"

Pros: "Everything from booking, online check-in, self printing of Boarding Pass, BIz Class lounge, Flight. Flight too short (KL to SG) for me to eat and enjoy the inflight entertainment."

Pros: "(Previous PE comparisons: Turkish AL, Air NZ, SAS) Ease of check-in, on-time dep/arr, crew attention and responsiveness, seating within the range to be expected of this class."
Cons: "Plane condition: Cosmetic plastic panel below monitor and seat back pocket on Seat 31E fell off when foot rest was lowered; had previously been secured by adhesive tape. Panel removed by crew. In-flight entertainment system: Persistent intermittent loss of sound while listening to movie or TV program. Food: Tried to use "Book the Cook" feature touted by Singapore's website. Was unable to get on site for that purpose. The last try a message appeared (late September) that site was being "rebuilt." On the flight, there was no menu of choices; we were offered 3 vaguely worded choices which boiled down to beef, chicken or vegetables. Those appeared in not particularly appetizing forms and combinations--P.S., we like east and southeast Asian cooking and had just spent 3 weeks in Japan. Failure to provide information about possible delays due to WRG deplaning location at LAX: Although we are frequent fliers to and from LAX, we'd never heard of the WRG. It would have been helpful if the crew had informed us upon arrival that there could possibly be a wait on the plane as buses were used to transport us approximately 1/2 mile to TBIT. Generally: We chose Singapore because of its reputation for excellence. Belying the name of the class, both Turkish AL and Air NZ treated Premium Economy passengers as "junior" business class. Singapore treated us as coach with a roomier cabin and seating pitch."

Pros: "Movies selection was great."
Cons: "Food and comfort were not as great as I thought they would be. Not bad, but not worthy of the brand Singapore airlines."

Pros: "They were polite."
Cons: "Not as attentive as ANA or China Airlines. I had to give 4-5 request to get what I want."

Pros: "Boarding was good and the flight time was shorter than expected."
Cons: "My son did not like any of the meal selections between beef and fish. We asked for a ramen noodle cup instead that the flight crew denied they had, only after seeing them offer it to another family just seconds before. I was very disappointed!! I believe the flight attendant knew of my concerns because she started asking me if the service was ok. If your doing a good job, then you won’t have to ask."

Pros: "Staying in a hotel for 24 hours."
Cons: "Not actually making it to Japan."

Pros: "I was inpressed"

Pros: "Great experience"
Cons: "Seating arrangement was bad"

Pros: "I am disabled traveling with my 96-year-old father. the Singapore Air crew helped us beyond all expectations on our 3 flights: JFK-FRA, FRA-SIN & SIN-DEN. most especially in Germany!"
Cons: "I need to upgrade our return flight SIN-LHR & can’t figure out how. also would like to modify trip, but it’s so difficult. deLancey Whitmer 1 (203) 838-6808"

Pros: "Staff worked very hard and were very helpful."
Cons: "The staff were run off their feet trying to help the families with babies and toddlers. The flight was not pleasant because of the crying and screaming children around us."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Even though the flight was just 45 mins, the crew were able to pop out a beverages round"
Cons: "Nothing to mention, all was good"

Cons: "This flight is on an old plane. The entertainment system was dated and the seats didn't recline properly. Food wasn't very good and they offered a very limited selection considering it is a 7-hour flight. Not worth doing Singapore Airlines business class for this leg."

Pros: "Excellent"
Cons: "All good"

Pros: "Excellent service & comfort"

Cons: "The plane was very cold. A lot of movies were offered but I couldn't find anything I wanted to watch."

Pros: "Delayed flight from Shanghai due to air traffic issues, so I had a 10 minute window to make my connection in Singapore. Ground staff was waiting for me with a small car after I disembarked to drive me to the gate. And I somehow made my connection. Excellent service. Obviously my checked bag didn't make it, but I was told in advance and was kept updated before boarding and immediate after I disembarked at my final destination. When I went to the baggage service counter, they were already ready for me, had filled out my paperwork, and just needed an address to confirm the delivery of my suitcase. I'm super impressed to this attention to detail."

Pros: "The flight wasn't full so we had a spare seat between us, That made economy barely tolerable."
Cons: "The seats in economy are now Way TOO SMALL! You better start calling Economy - "Stearage"! Food was not as good as on past flights with SA. Movie selection not as good as past SA flights. Earphones supplied are horrible!!!"

Cons: "They reschudle my flight beaucase I have anxiety. It's my birthday today. I'm suppose to be in China celebrating me and my grandma's birthday right now. Apparently anxiety is something that Singapore airline are very concerned about me, that needs a doctor note to prove that I'm okey to fly. poor coummcation skill and power play"

Cons: "I'm good with everything as there was really no down side"

Pros: "Clean, roomy and peaceful flight"
Cons: "Not being 20min late and having NO ground announcement about the delay and impact on connecting flights. When I suggest to a staff member that perhaps they should keep customers informed, they said they couldn’t because they didn’t know. They helpfully suggested I google for information! Seriously!"

Pros: "I’ve taken Qantas once before and it made my trip from the US ato AU so much more relaxing. I just took Qantas again and was even more blown away with everything. The crew members are extremely nice and are always present to help you with something you may need."
Cons: "nothing. all good things!"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing not to like"

Pros: "Staff this direction was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "You can't check in online or at the kiosk. You must adhere strictly to the carry-on baggage size and weight. The airplanes are a bit worn."

Pros: "Crew was excellent! Very friendly and attentive - entertainment selection was great and the plane stayed nice and cool which is really helpful for a 15hr flight - no one needs 300 sweaty people for 15 its."
Cons: "That we were required to check our overhead bag because it weighed more than 15lbs. Meanwhile as we boarded nearly every passenger had an overhead bag that most certainly weighed more than 15lbs. Not sure what was going on there...also the seats are a little tight when reclined. Once the seat in front of me reclined back I had my knees in the back of the chair the entire flight and I am not a particularly tall person- made for a pretty uncomfortable 15hrs."

Pros: "Good pillows."
Cons: "They let us know by email little before departure that there would be a delay of 1h 15 min in our arrival to London. This made me uneasy from the very beginning that I would lose my London-Luxembourg flight. The crew in the boarding gate, only after much insisting, said they would make a note so that someone from Qantas would wait for me and help me get my London-Luxembourg flight no problem, but in the next stopovers (Melbourne, Dubai), there was no sign of this. Also, the delay in the end was 2h 20 min - and I lost my flight to Luxembourg."

Pros: "We loved everything from check in to leaving the plane. They are a lovely bunch. Thank you, Qantas, for hiring wonderful staff members. We hope you treat them well."

Pros: "I love Qantas in general. I paid for exit row seats and it's worth the extra money."
Cons: "Food was ok but I've had better in Qantas."

Cons: "Lost a bag Charged for bags Made us check in our overhead bags-No quality carrier does that."

Pros: "The flight crew were friendly, the flight left on time, food good and cabin clean."
Cons: "Had a jumpy screen for a while and the headsets were a bit sensitive with the sound dropping on and off. The controls were on the top of the arm rest which my husband kept accidentally knocking. Changing channels, turning up the volume etc."

Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Everything was fine. I have flown with Qantas many times, and it was same as usual"
Cons: "I had no problems"

Pros: "Double seats in Economy"
Cons: "Complete lack of separation between seats - minimal room. When the passenger in front reclined. It knocked my very small Qantas bottle over. Non existant leg room. A most Uncomfortable flight back to Melbourne Qantas take a look at Jet Blue. ..this should be your benchmark in Economy Travel...."

Pros: "The crew were cheery, helpful and professional."
Cons: "In economy, space is an issue, still feels cramped"

Cons: "Call what was server 'supper' didn't quite cut it. More like tiny heavily salted cardboard."

Cons: "See above"

Pros: "Good crew on the ground and in the air."
Cons: "The food was the worst long haul food I've ever had - a hot sandwich in a box. Really? For a 12 hour flight?! Entertainment was basic - not bad, but minimal. Seat recline was basic/minimal. If you're a budget flyer, pick a different airline. If you're a premium flyer, Quantas is fine."

Pros: "Food, entertainment, comfy seats, quiet sleeping time"
Cons: "Some of the head phone connection did not work"

Pros: "Qantas was half the price of what I had paid for last year on United. Overall the price was great for I had paid for. The staffs were friendly. They let the passengers move around because there were plenty of seats."
Cons: "I didn't like how they didn't give us notification of how far out we were to landing. I end up going to the restroom a few outs. The flight attendant kept knocking on the door. Obviously, I cannot stop what I am doing to go out."

Pros: "Great everything by Qantas - couldn't fault any aspect of the service"
Cons: "Not good that traffic backed up 800 metres to get to drop off zone!"

Cons: "Food on board from Syndey to Melbourne"

Pros: "Every person that works for this airline (that I came in contact with) was very helpful, extremely nice, and very supprtive."

Cons: "Seats did not fully recline in business class"

Pros: "Flying business class on quantas is awesome"

Pros: "Documentaries, food, wine, service, seats"
Cons: "Turbulence"

Pros: "The comfort , the food the entertainment"

Pros: "The personal entertainment option worked fantastically. Food was also very good for such a short flight."

Pros: "Really friendly, helpful, attentive staff"
Cons: "Weather - there was about 45 minutes of real turbulence!! Service at Hertz was really bad. Kept me waiting about 30 minutes. If I didn't follow up the staff wouldn't have noticed that my car had arrived."

Pros: "Food is good which is being served hot , even the bread is being served hot . The food is of the right portion .The crew is doing what they need to do for the passengers , quiet efficient , smile quite a lot thus making them feel more comfortable . The toilets are being kept clean . Keep it up !"

Pros: "Lady who checked us in in LA was great."
Cons: "On-board crew may have been the worst ever and I've done that flight for YEARS. They only get grumpier, bossier, ruder and less helpful each time. Oh for another airline that flies direct LAX > MEL!!!"

Cons: "Why do they use QF flight number between Hobart and Sydney/Melbourne when it is operated by JETStar? As a customer I naturally expect I can get the same service from JETStar as Qantas.However I had to check out my heavy luggage at Sydney Airport, get a shuttle bus paying money and check in again at JETStar. The JETStar staff at the airport was not helpful at all! On the contrary she BLUNTLY told me JETStar is a different company from QANTAS. That's all. At Hobart Airport I was BLUNTLY told again I had to get my luggage at Melbourne Airport and check in again because they didn't have facility to forward the luggage to Qantas. I understand Qantas and JETStar are allied airlines and so they should give the same service as any other allied airlines. I need good explanation about these poor service from JETStar and Qantas. Thank you ."

Pros: "entertainment system was excellent, very up to date. broad selection of movies and TV shows, good selection of music as well."
Cons: "seats were abysmal for a 15hr flight. These are similar to the intolerable seats and spacing for domestic (US) flights on legacy carriers (although, American is now radically changing seat dimensions and comfort on the 737-800). For a 6hr flight, it is not tolerable. For a 15hr non-stop flight, it is punishing. The Quantas A380-200 is no longer a new plane. The seat hardware is tired, lumpy, stiff, back-breaking. This could be improved by more space per seat, but it is not. I am 6'3" (189cm) and not at all fat (75kg), but the amount of seating space was tight. Again, this is an inconvenience for a short flight, and absolutely punishing on a long, 15hr, flight. It was not a cheap flight, and surely some updated seats can be put in, with fewer rows. By contrast, I flew back to US on Air New Zealand, and was entirely comfortable on a 12hr leg on very modern and spacious seats in the lowest economy class seat, on a 777 plane for a much cheaper fare."

Pros: "Dinner was ok and afterwards were offered twix icecream bars and lindt chocolate balls. Entertainment system was good, although kids slept through flight so didn't notice. Crew was fantastic with both our kids."
Cons: "Having to transfer (nearly 30mins wait/travel time) from Perth international to domestic Qantas terminal."

Pros: "Good selection of movies to watch on my 14 hour flight. Seat was comfortable. Food was good and plentiful, staff members were great."
Cons: "It would be nice if food and drinks could be ordered via the tv screens. I tried to upgrade to business class but the qantas website kept giving me an account creation error message and would allow me to create it. When I got to the airport and asked the attendant he said it was too late to do it in person and I should have done it the day before. He was actually very nice, but it was frustrating that I tried to do it as far as a week early but was not able to because the website. I was still comfortable in the seat I was in but would have felt better if I even had a chance at upgrading."

Pros: "It was the first time I have flown internationally and not gone through immigration when leaving the US. So was fast. The transfer on the bus was good."
Cons: "Qantas needs some better salty snacks to nibble on, those soy crackers are like cat food. The transfer on the bus was not well marked or communicated to passengers. we were lucky to stumble onto it"

Pros: "Everything was great"

Pros: "The entertainment..."
Cons: "There was not a lot of room for my legs when the chair in front of me was in the reclining position ."

Pros: "Smooth and very organized."
Cons: "Everything was good"

Pros: "I checked in late in Charlotte and they reassign my seats. I asked if there were any seat that would give me more leg room and was told the plane was full. They I was asked if I wanted to move to a window seat, which would have given me less leg room. Then I was asked to show my passport after I was in my seat. I was not provided with any explanation."
Cons: "Nothing. I would strongly recommend the crew gets training coaching f I would strongly recommend the crew get some training on cultural diverse."

Pros: "Comfortable, clean."
Cons: "Flight was delayed two hours."

Cons: "Unacceptable delays"

Pros: "Crew was fine - not their fault that DELTA changed my flight at the last minutes with terrible options on rescheduling my flight!"
Cons: "Yes...not change my flight at the last minute and causing me to miss my connecting flight. Then making me reschedule my flight with only options that I now have (2) layover and then arrive in Korea another day later, that then caused me to miss my college orientation day!"

Cons: "Flight continually delayed so I had to drive to Chicago and take an American Airlines flight - that cost an additional $700"

Cons: "First delay notification: 1 hour 20 minutes 1 hour later, Second delay notification: 3 hours 15 minutes 2 hours later: Third delay notification: 3 hour 50 minutes Fourth delay notification: 4 hours 25 minutes Fifth delay notification: 4 hour 32 minutes No explanation for reason. Last time flying Delta."

Pros: "Great landing in a real mess of a storm. We were pitching and yawing due to high gusts of winds but the crew brought it down perfectly. The Captain explained the weather situation before we left Atlanta so I was prepared for a bad weather flight and landing."
Cons: "The weather."

Pros: "Everything was fine. Delta did a great job."
Cons: "The kid screaming in my ear for 3 hours"

Pros: "I liked the service to see if there was a chance to upgrade because of the connecting flight and even though there was a delay in the plane arriving to Alaska, the quick turn was excellent and we were in the air within a short period of time."
Cons: "The comfortability and that’s rear even if I had the middle seat. I had it on my way towards Alaska and didn’t have any issue"

Pros: "Service by the Delta team"
Cons: "Seats not roomy enough"

Cons: "Cabin was too hot!!!!"

Pros: "Short flight! Crew nice enough!"
Cons: "Boarding seemed slightly delayed"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "the flight attendant gets the order starting from the back and by the time she gets to the front there's no more selection for breakfast except for what is left that nobody like."

Pros: "Everything went smoothly - very happy"

Cons: "Cramped seating for premium Econ"

Pros: "My seat was randomly the exit row, so more leg room and pilots made great time"
Cons: "Left 20 minutes late because of travel agents"

Cons: "Flight cancelled because of weather"

Pros: "Crew was lovely"
Cons: "CRJ-700 is too small. Only one bathroom & it was broken. Hour late to depart & no explanation given. Never turned off the seatbelt sign & we ended up on the plan for approx 2.5hrs for our 1hr flight."

Pros: "Crew was very helpful."
Cons: "On the way to Minneapolis the plane was BEYOND PACKED. There was no room for even my backpack."

Pros: "Nice flight attendants on this flight."

Pros: "Was able to sleep for once. Nobody in center seat."
Cons: "Crying babies"

Pros: "The flight was calm"
Cons: "What I didn’t like is the inconviece where we had to change flight hour and aircraft and move to another one and we were delay for one all hour plus the 3 hours that we were there before the hour of departure that is really really bad"

Pros: "Delta has great seats, friendly employees and engaged managers and pilots. Even their customer service Center reaches out to help on suggestions. I am flying to Portland for School over 40 round trips and I am saving $4,000 vs Alaska Air. Plus I get miles and discounts with the Delta Amex Card. I am very pleased."
Cons: "I don’t like harsh change in schedule fees but it forces me to plan. I wish the Seattle to Portland Eve flight landed in time to catch Portland Rail system at 11:50 PM"

Pros: "Gate personal kept us notified about flight delay. Flight crew was very positive on plane and they were as miserable about the delay as we were. Snacks and drinks were brought out. The gate crew keeping us updated is what saved the name of Delta. If she didnt do that people would have been angry."
Cons: "Flight was supposed to depart at 0730. Actual departure was 1045. Three out of seven of the flight crew were not happy about how badly they were being treated by call center and /or management while they were delayed with us at gate. Snacks were brought out because of delay but they were just junk food. Nothing I could eat due to allergies."

Pros: "Good service smooth flight"
Cons: "The food on bosrd"

Cons: "I was sitting in the last row and the bathroom smell was hard to deal with."

Pros: "I enjoyed the movie, all else was good"
Cons: "Did nt get to finish the movie, arrived at destination early. Thank you Delta, great trip."

Pros: "As usual, Delta staff and crew did their best to make the flight quite enjoyable and smooth."

Pros: "Counter agent found reservation but not ticket number(?). She was very helpful and nice but Delta reservation system was a total mess. Barely made boarding even though we arrived airport plenty of time before the flight."
Cons: "Counter agent."

Pros: "I liked the WiFi and Movies. The flight crew was wonderful making a stressful retreat from Hurricane Irma a little better"

Pros: "Polite and thoughtful crew took care of our needs. Beverage service came through at least twice. Crew persevered through difficulties with the in-flight entertainment system and finally got it to work for us. :)"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "We were two for two on not being able to understand the gate agents announcements. Please keep in mind that not everyone flies frequently. I'm convinced that the routine of the job blinds both the TSA and airline employees to this fact. Clear and concise instructions would be great, regulars will continue to ignore you. So no harm, no foul."

Pros: "The flight got us from Anchorage to Atlanta on time."
Cons: "No A/C vent controls for each seat. No reading light for seats. No flight attendant call light buttons were accessible. NO WiFI or video entertainment. Coach plus seats were just like the rest of coach, just in front of them. Seats would not adequately recline. The plane was still PACKED."

Pros: "Everything about the flight was great. We boarded and took off on time. I have no complaints."
Cons: "No complaints! I had a perfect diet coke and pretzels while I watched tv."

Pros: "We have been flying Delta more often lately. Great service, newer planes in and out of Alaska, and affordable first class tickets. Snack basket had chocolate bars..."
Cons: "Short 3 hour flight-no complaints"

Pros: "Lots of seat space even in economy, I felt very comfortable and not cramped on my flight. Food was decent and flight attendants were very attentive. My flight was kind of an outlier experience as someone on my flight fell very ill and needed immediate medical attention. The KLM employees on board did a very good job of taking care of the situation and making sure everyone else on board still had a calm flight experience."
Cons: "My connecting flight was scheduled too close to my landing time."

Pros: "Entertainment. Center was great"
Cons: "Boarding has been made so complicated it's a joke."

Pros: "Product was excellent, the whole experience was amazing."

Pros: "Loved everything, the meal was good, spacious seats and friendly staff."

Pros: "Flight was short and the pilot informed us quickly when we were starting to decend."
Cons: "Flight was a little over crowded."

Pros: "All went well"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "really close to a SkyClub - it seems like the connections to Panama City usually get stuck at the end of the concourse, so this was a pleasant change"
Cons: "Alaska seems to do a much better job in getting the people to stay out of the boarding area until their zone is boarding. At least they make it a point of emphasis."
