Pros: "I had a nice exit row seat so that was nice"
Cons: "The food was not good and there also wasn’t enough of it which is really bizarre for an international flight that’s 14 hours long"
Pros: "The ANA crew at Haneda airport were very polite, professional, and very patient with me. However due to an online error between the ANA US website and the ANA JP website my confirmed seat on my flight was given to another passenger so I was kicked off. How this happened I dont know."
Cons: "Fix ANA US-JP online booking system."
Pros: "Great food. Excellent cleanliness"

Cons: "Delayed for an hour while already boarded"
Pros: "Perfect service, never had a more pleasant and attentive crew"
Cons: "Movies were pretty much still the same as 10 weeks ago. Not possible to sleep in the seat in premium economy right by the toilets and galley. Constant door clattering and toilet flushing. In other cabins the noise wasn't as bad, probably better insulated?"
Pros: "Service was excellent. Premium economy seats well worth the few extra $$."
Pros: "The service are great!"
Pros: "Sturdest were very kind"
Cons: "There was 2 choices for food either pork or chicken But when I asked for chicken they told us no more chicken Then they took the pork from the tray and I had to eat the rest without the main course. Also all the seats were taken by the people who bought the tickets directly from JAL,but there was few seats left all in the middle for people who purchase tickets from travel agents."
Pros: "The crew was excellent."
Cons: "We almost missed our flight to Kona, due to a malfunction in the plane from Chitose to Narita where we were disembarked. We were not aware or made aware of the distance from the domestic to international gate. We were told to take the 1830 pm flight to connect. We almost got a heart attack from running to our very far gate. I wish we were made aware that a shuttle bus would have been available to go to the international gate."
Pros: "They were very accommodating and helped ensure a good travel experience (first time traveling with a young child)."
Pros: "Very helpful and polite"
Cons: "I got a sore but comes the seat was not very padded"

Pros: "Flight crew was amazing. Respect for people at a level I haven’t seen on domestic US airlines. Seat configuration of 2-4-2 in economy was great. Food and entertainment was really good. Flight arrived on time with no issues."
Cons: "That the level of service on other airlines isn’t at this level. Don’t go to AA looking for a good example."

Cons: "Seat was too hard"
Pros: "The flight attendants are quick in services and with great manner.

The seat belt on light and bell were kept at minimal, in contrast to other airlines like EVA, China Airlines, Korean Airlines and United Airlines."

Pros: "Singapore Airlines has everything worked out for you before you land. That's a great help. The stewardesses were just phenomenal and endlessly polite. I will definitely use them again."

Cons: "I did not find much to watch on entertainment system. Have to get crew to assemble flat bed, a bit of a nuisance. Also to turn it back into a chair."

Cons: "Had premium economy seat. Not the most comfortable on the tailbone for some reason."

Pros: "Excellent service and attitude from ALL crew! Roomy premier economy!"
Cons: "Some staff not courteous which surprised me"
Cons: "Boarding at Singapore airport was shocking, as we had to wait 6 hours for our flight. Rating low to the crew mainly because of the ground staff as they were not very communicative to begin with about the explanation for our delay. Only when the passengers got a bit more vocal about wanting explanations, they started giving us a bit more information. All estimated times given for boarding the flight were incorrect by a big margin! Seemed more like they were giving shorter wait time for boarding just to please the passengers, where as they were well aware of how long the wait would be."

I wish the chairs either didn't do this or the flight attendants would have said something. I didn't feel like I had the authority to do anything about it. Also it was so warm! I have no idea if there was a fan."

Cons: "I didn't like that interacting with their websitewas not very iser friendly or reliable. While most domestic airlines allow you to easuly interact with your itinerary I pretty much had to just show up and hope everything worked out. Also no alerts or other functions."
Pros: "Great customer service, food was fine, seats were comfy in economy too. Definitely would fly again and recommend to everyone!"
Pros: "Crew and entertainment"
Cons: "Very small seats. For full flights they should use the double deck aircrafts. They are much more comfortable. I paid an expensive fair for an old plane which was unfair"

Pros: "the staff were friendly and accomplished good travel nothing was too much for them."
Cons: "nil"
Cons: "I was moved from the front to the very back upon checking in at the gate due to "Weight and Balance" issues.

Just a hassle since this flight was long and all I wanted to do was get some rest."
Pros: "Good movie selection, very friendly crew"
Pros: "Q-suits. Very comfortable and private. Great upgrade to the 777. WiFi now available for very reasonable price"
Cons: "Bus transfer to Termial 5 is VERY poorly organized and takes over an hour. This makes it harder to get to Terminal 5 even if you don't have to clear security again. Seats had a bar under the padding at about the position of my hips. Uncomfortable to sleep for several hours"
Pros: "Everything was good - food, entertainment, on time."
Pros: "The flight crew was very friendly and helpful in getting you settled on the flight"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit Hectic in Bangkok."
Pros: "I had never heard of Qatar Airways before I booked a 24hr flight to and from Sydney, Australia. I only did this on the suggestion from a friend that stated Qatar Airways was "alright". So for the price I thought what the heck! I was extremely pleased with the service from the cabin crew. They are always polite, professional, and well trained compared to my previous favorites Delta and Lufthansa. The seats were comfortable (as comfortable as Economy and 24hours of flying can be), the entertainment and aircraft were state of the art, and the food was outstanding for airline food. If I get the chance in the future I will definitely choose Qatar Airways for long trips."
Cons: "Other rude or snotty passengers taking up the crews time and attention for no reason. But as I stated in the "positive" side of this review, the crew handled these impolite individuals with a smile and polite attitude. Kudos to Qatar Airways."
Pros: "Good food and good hospitality"
Pros: "everything"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Very affordable flights, good value for money. Most of the journey from Sydney to Oslo (via Doha) went qiluite smoothly)."

Pros: "I took advantage of the upgrade offer, and it was well worth it."
Cons: "Too many mosquitoes, but I'm not sure how they could have stopped them coming on board."

Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Staff worked fast to feed and water everyone."
Pros: "Qatar is a reliable airline."
Cons: "No matter how many times I have traveled with Qatar (5 international flights in the last year); I still do not receive any benefits such a priority boarding or upgrades."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and I liked that they didn’t make many announcements which can often keep passengers awake when they’re trying to sleep. Lights were kept off for the duration of the 14 hour flight which was good."
Cons: "I felt that the service was slow and the food was poor. Water was not offered during the flight as is the norm with other airlines. Toilets should be cleaned more regularly. Advertising at the beginning of the inflight entertainment became very repetitive when watching short tv shows."
Pros: "Great travel experience. We flew economy. Spacious, good service, comfy, on time."
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "Beautiful airplane with an incredibly hospitable staff. Food was delicious, seats were spacious and comfortable. Couldn’t ask for a better 14-hour flight!"
Pros: "Liked everything."
Cons: "Nothing was wrong but excess bagage fee is high"
Cons: "the wifi was average at best. I get that we there are limitations...but if the service is going to be this poor, make it free & unlimited."
Pros: "All the stewards were so friendly and helpful. The facilities were very well serviced and so you forget that the plane was 100% full, despite long queues to the toilets. I would fly again with Qatar Air for sure."
Cons: "Front row with a toddler meant that we couldn't lift the armrests up and get her to lay down. She had to lie on the floor, but when we hit some turbulence, we had to wake her and sit her back up with us. The second part of the leg was much better as we were on a normal row seat"
Cons: "Food is not fresh and seats are not comfortable. Very little leg room."
Cons: "Poor communication about transfers. I also had to throw away 20 pounds of things or get charge $800"
Pros: "N/a"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "Great service and food."
Pros: "We departed late and therefore missed the connection. The staff met me and made arrangement for hotel accommodations till the next available flight. No haggling was necessary. staff on ground and in air sought to be helpful. Price of ticket was very affordable. Seating comfortable."
Cons: "Comparing to Emirates airlines...Movie choices were very limited. Only 2 new movies available. Food was poor at best. This was my second trip with Qatar. First trip...my iPad was stolen from baggage. Airline have had no solution. I prefer Emirates."
Pros: "Good service, plenty of entertainment options, modern aircraft."
Pros: "no time now"
Cons: "no time now"
Pros: "Clean plane, esp. the bathrooms. Sufficient bathroom amenities. Attendants always checking bathrooms for cleanliness. Very friendly attendants yet not overpowering. This flight, the films are a bit better but still not the most recently films are on offer. Nobu's seafood soup noodles was the best!"
Cons: "Not interested in the menu's main courses. Fruits were not sweet at all. Must improve on your cappuccino. Nobu's seafood soup noodle did not come with chopsticks."
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "Crew Boarding"
Cons: "Food Not so comfy"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Better and clearer instructions about clearance and travel documents related covid"
Pros: "Lots of space"
Pros: "The flight crew tried hard"
Cons: "A tiny amount of extra legroom. A 6.5 hour flight from seattle and I felt like I was in a tiny box."
Pros: "From the moment we boarded our family felt like we were already in the islands!!"
Cons: "Our breakfast sandwich...not so good."
Cons: "Seat didn't recline"
Pros: "I loved the headrests that could bend so it cushioned your head while you were sleeping. I also loved the tablet/ phone holder on the bs k of the seat."
Cons: "The breakfast sandwich wasn’t the best."
Pros: "The crew was great and the flight was smooth."
Cons: "It would be nice if crew members would ask people to shut their windows for the bulk of the flight. It gets quite bright."

Pros: "I love the energy of Hawaiian Airlines I truly feel the Aloha"
Cons: "My bag was lost ~ that's frustrating. This is an aspect of my travel, but overall my flight & experience was groovy."
Pros: "These days it’s hard to get a complimentary drink and snack but not with Hawaiian, you will have snacks, a meal, and many beverages. The super friendly staff make the plane ride a very pleasant flight."
Cons: "Most of the entertainment will cost you additional money. The seats were super uncomfortable and for a long flight, that’s not good :/. I am writing this review from the tarmac where we have been sitting for the past 40 min for a gate with no ETA in sight. This is upsetting."
Pros: "When entered the airplane I was warmly greeted. Flight attendant even offered to help put my bag up above"
Cons: "I needed some medicine up above in my carryon. I asked an attendant while we were still at the terminal but doing announcements and was told I could get it if I did it quickly When I stood up I was told to take my seat sharply by another. Later when no one was in the galley I poured some water from a bottle sitting there into a cup to drink. The attendant who came by in a raised rude tone told me to go sit down and grabbed the water from my. He proceeded to say “How could you do that as it was so unsanitary”"
Cons: "Seats selected at booking were reassigned to back of the plane.We were traveling with another couple, their reassigned seats were not near us. Very disappointing"
Pros: "The Service, crew and flight were all good, very good landing."
Cons: "The flat bed seating was uncomfortable, I was squashed up and happy to get out of the seat on arrival. I was seated in 1C"
Cons: "I was annoyed with the fact that everything cost money. The women next to me asked for water and the flight attendant said that she could pay for it or wait for breakfast. I was thirsty on the plane but I was not about to pay $8 for a bottle of water. I was also not happy that almost all the movies (with the exception of three about the sea) had to be purchased. Most planes now have at least an app with movies on it for free, especially on 6 hour flights."
Cons: "no on onboard at-seat refreshment service, meals were inadequqte to be called meals, seating legroom poor. Unlikely I would reserve HawIian in future."
Pros: "So so happy I got the upgrade to 1st class! The seats were comfy, the flight attendants were so kind and the food and beverages were delicious."
Pros: "The flight was fine, the crew friendly, and all the usual. The little prop plane was nimble and with the short hop over scenic islands, it felt almost like a paid tour."
Cons: "The $200 change fee for a different flight was pretty harsh. It's not really the airline's fault, but the TSA screening really makes it feel like we aren't free."
Pros: "One of the worse flight experiences, if not the worst. The crew was indifferent and disrespectful to our dietary restrictions on a 5 HOUR FLIGHT! It’s worth noting that when I say “our”, I also refer to my visibly pregnant wife. We asked one crew member for water (WATER!) and were told they ran out. Moments later, the same crew member was passing out water bottles to other passengers. There’s much more to say about our flight, but if theses two instances don’t prompt a change, then the rest won’t matter anyway."
Cons: "Did not like anything about this flight!"
Pros: "The extra touches that used to be normal and then every airline took away, like meals! Complimentary cocktail was a bonus too."
Cons: "no vegetarian food options so all the other passengers ate except for me and my travel partner"
Pros: "The flight crew was very friendly. The complimentary beverage and snack service were outstanding. They kept on coming up and down the aisles with water bottles to refill water. It was the easiest flight to stay hydrated on that I have ever been on."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Food, service, and on time."
Cons: "The temperature is too cold inside the carbine"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 6+ hours and no alerts or messages sent to passengers even though it was a 7:30am flight. I would have expected to receive an email or text."
Pros: "Our flights were delayed in both directions!"
Cons: "The long delays. Also we were seated st the very end of the plane and were not able to change seats."
Pros: "The crew in the boarding area were gracious, kind, and as informative as they could be in this situation."
Cons: "1) They neglected to check and fix their navigation system. So, we all had to wait 3+ hours for them to do that on our time. 2) They gave us a voucher but only for food. Due to the long wait time, many of us wanted to purchase a magazine or newspaper to read, but that wasn't allowed. 3) My seat was stuck in the upright position. So I was forced to sit that way for the six-hour flight. 4) Passengers were forced to watch and listen to commercials - ridiculous when we're paying them to fly me not pester me with selling. *Conclusion: I'll never fly Hawaiian Airlines again.*"
Pros: "I am so happy you sent a survey! I have been wanting to sen a compliment to the women that was at the gate counter the day of my flight 11/30/17 flt 41. I watched her handle multiple difficult situations. In a severely stressful moment insane her handle with such grace and professionalism. She deserves a personal pat on the back and a raise:)"
Cons: "Customer service"
Pros: "Crew were nice. Big plane with lots of overhead storage was helpful."
Cons: "Picked my seats online when I booked and was told I didn't have reserved seats during check in. Had to get seats assigned last minute over the phone (very last row), and the customer service experience on the phone was awful."
Pros: "Let me think, food was free. Some of the staff was friendly. Glad was the flight was quick, because I don't think I could deal with that staff anymore than the few interactions I had with them."
Cons: "Lets start with the boarding process. Its not organized and just a huge mess. This zone boarding thing is very old school and no where is there a screen saying which zone is boarding, you have to listen for the quiet announcement and hope you heard it correctly, because they only say it once. When on board, the staff I dealt with was having a bad day or something, because slamming drinks down on tray tables and cups in to a half full cup must be the norm. The passenger next to me mentioned that the staff was very rude to me, as I was pretty passive at the time. The seats are somewhat comfortable, but when the staff tells you not to lean back because the lady behind you doesn't have enough leg room, then whats the point of paying for comfort plus. The food may be free, but if you want some sort of entertainment, TV shows or movies, it isn't free. Everything must be paid for on this flight. You pay a pretty penny to get on these flights only for them to up-sell you on everything! This airline needs some major changes to staff and technology."
Cons: "We picked seats online next to each other and got separated during check in with different seats"
Pros: "I booked late, but I got a seat pretty close to the one I chose, and they made sure I got an aisle, like I specified. They gave us a complimentary glass of rum punch (if you're 21+) and I love this drink! Sweet and satisfying. I believe they do this on all their flights."
Cons: "This didn't affect me personally, but you do have to pay $15 extra to use their entertainment system. I'm glad I downloaded a movie and some tv shows to my tablet before going."
Cons: "Every time the flight attendant walk by there was a strange odor, maybe onions. When they past out some bags of Hawaiian potato chips, the bag had that odor and we then thought it must be the chips and from her being around them. We decided not to eat them and carried then off in our carry on baggage The next day I was hungry and decided to eat a bag. The odor was gone and the chips didn't smell at all Turns out it was the flight attendant. Maybe the type of food she consumes or her clothes were around a lot of garlic and onions Hope she is not on our return flight"
Pros: "There was decent space, attentive crew, good entertainment options, and a good meal."
Cons: "I think it is ridiculous that the airline provided in seat entertainment but all movies and shows needed to be purchased"
Pros: "Flight was great, everyone was nice and helpful. There were options to purchase movies or listen to music but NO headphone port :-( I hope people bring devices/books to amuse themselves"
Cons: "Purchase price for entertainment. No headphone port/jack/plug in"
Pros: "The staff was superb and friendly!!!"
Pros: "The flight staff was amazing! It is really hard to fly 15 hours in one day but each flight was filled with amazing flight attendants and pilots!"
Pros: "Very pleasant flight flight attendants very pleasant and proffesional"
Cons: "In the past I have had bad expierence not with the flight crew but with the custumer service representatives behind the counter They are very unproffesional and rude I only fly Hawaiin if I dont have to interact with them and itis yhe Kahalui airport Wilma"
Pros: "positive, friendly staff"
Cons: "lack of ability to select seats from mainland to hawaii on both flights."
Cons: "My flight got delayed and I got stuck waiting for two and a half hours. Then my luggage didn't follow me and I had to drive an hour out of my way to pick it up from a different airport. Not a happy customer"
Pros: "Quick boarding Very supportive staff"
Cons: "None"
Cons: "We boarded a hot plane. The A/C was turned on then we smelled kerosene. We de-boarded and sat - the gate crew were fine but really didn't know what was going on. After repeated erroneous emails from HAL, the flight was actually scrubbed until HAL could get a crew and plane from Honolulu. The emails actually gave us new departure times that had already passed!) Thanks to some terrific work by the HAL gate crew, we were able to get seats on an Alaska flight. Five hours later than our original schedule but much better than our HAL schedule which finally left 7+ hours after schedule."
Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "There was a late gate change which sent passengers to the other side of the terminal and resulted in a 30 minute delay."
Pros: "Hawaiian sets new low standards with rude employees, incompetence and dirty, uncomfortable planes. Truly a chicken bus in the sky."
Pros: "My experience boarding was a bit of a disaster as the boards at the airport stated an incorrect gate and reported an hour delay which was not correct. I ended up having to sprint to make the flight in a different wing an hour before I thought it was leaving. I barely made it onboard. I think this is an issue with the airport, not the airline but this is the only forum I have to state this. My experience with the crew was amazing. Very welcoming and hospitable. My experience with the airport staff was the opposite. Very unhelpful and cold. The flight went fairly smoothly, but, as is the case with most American airlines these days, the seats are uncomfortable and cramped. The inflight meal was good (for airline food) and very much appreciated on the 6 hour flight. Overall, this was a pretty typical American flying experience. Unfortunately, I was returning from flying with Asian and Australian airlines which were much more comfortable and customer-focused, so my experience on Hawaiian seemed subpar."
Cons: "Let me start by saying.. I never ever leave negative comments; and two, I apologize for th long winded message.. but I'm still fuming!! My husband and I both had smaller roller carry on bags traveling with us. When we approached the plane through the gate, the Hawaiian Airlines staff told us there wasn't anymore room for our bags, and that they would have to be checked. Whenever this has been done on other airlines, they always return your bag to you as soon as you get off the plane... not this time! Our bags were sent to baggage claim, and we had a connecting flight with a very short layover window! This means that we were FORCED to leave the airport area, retrieve our bags from baggage claim, go through security AGAIN and almost miss our connecting flight! I expressed to the crew immediately after we got off the plane our situation and that we were never even given an option to give them our bags as we would have never opted in for going all the way out and all the way back in to get to our connection (SO stressful!!). Make a long story short, the staff lied to us about where our bags were going, were NOT helpful when I told them that we needed our bags, and showed no concern or sympathy that we may miss out connecting flight because of their mistake. Winded, mad and extremely late.. we barely got on the connection.. NO THANKS TO THE HAWAIIAN AIRLINES STAFF! Will never fly Hawaiian again!"
Pros: "Seating space was good when the person in front of you didn't recline. Crew was nice and boarding was easy. Like the flow of the Airbus. Food was airline food. Like the wine with dinner and the welcome drink to Hauwaii."
Cons: "The seating was good but allows the seat in front of you to recline to far. Some recline is fine but theirs is too much leaving you unable to fully use your tray, and if the entertainment was decent, to watch it. Entertain was very disappointing. Paying for entertainment on a 5 hour flight that has lots of families is ridiculous. Already have to pay for luggage and seat upgrades. They make having meal a big deal but when you don't offer any entertainment and no wifi and for what yo u pay for a ticket is very disappointing."
Pros: "Plenty of leg room. Quiet. Quick smooth flight."
Cons: "Boarding. They said they were boarding by zone but then never called any zones. By the time we got our seats there were no overhead bins except in rear of the plane. We had to put our carryons in the back then when we landed we had to let eveyone off the plane so we could go to the back to get our bags. We asked if they would check our carryons and we were told no. As people were getting off many had two or more bags each."
Pros: "Was ok"
Cons: "If got good deal I will go with them again"
Pros: "Good crew. Great pilots."
Cons: "Food. Seat comfort."
Pros: "Service and food."
Pros: "Yes Crew were indeed amazing!"
Cons: "Customer service from the cathy pacific crew are not good at all.. I flight business to and from asia to the USA at least 3-4 times a year.. cathy pacific was such a disappointment.."
Pros: "They are amazing"
Pros: "Will if you didnt know yet it was horrible. because of the reschedulling i miss my flight from paris to venice and all this flight is boon through you but i couldnt contact cheapflights because you dont handle it. So what do you think??"
Cons: "Well at least you could at least know what happened but instead i still got message from you that my flight was still on for 1235 really are you guys that really dumb??"
Pros: "The crew was great. They were very quick to respond to any requests and were very accommodating."
Pros: "Everything was excellent, crew, seat, food"
Cons: "The person on duty at the desk of the lounge in Johannesburg was very unfriendly and even rude."
Pros: "The flight was delayed from sfo to Hongkang. Very disappointed."
Pros: "Polite crew, good food"
Cons: "Newer plane on flight from HKG to sFo"
Pros: "Great"
Cons: "Great"
Cons: "2 hours delay as usual with cathay pacific - flight attendand constantly disturb you on the pr system - very limited choice of movies, mostly old and finally poor food as always with cx - the seat on the other hand is very comfortable and thankfully i forgot i flew with cx"
Pros: "the flight was on time"
Cons: "the sound system on my seat was broken so I couldn't watch movies except"
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Good"
Pros: "only the deffective TV particularly seat 30f"
Cons: "deffetive TV..i just sleep thru out my flght"
Cons: "Food options listed on menu were not available. Breakfast was served so late that crew said not enough time to make/serve hot coffee or tea. During flight no crew ever came around to offer more water or liquid between meals. TV was in German with no instructions on how to change language to English. Bathrooms were not kept clean. Also, when boarding at the HK airport, after disabled and families, everyone was asked to board at the same time which resulted in one very long line of several hundred people."
Cons: "Hi. I want you to pay me back half of my air tickets that I paid+ my expenses that I spent. I bought from you air tickets with Scoot airlines from H.K to Singapore on 30 December and back to H.K on the 3 January. when I came to the H.K airport to check in with scoot airlines they said to me that I can't go to Singapore because my passport expired on 2 of June and it's less than 6 months if I want to go to Singapore I need to have in my passport more than 6months. sow in the end I lost the ticket to Singapore and not only this I went back to H.K I toke a room in the hotel 150$ and the day after I went to the embassy of Israel to extend my passport and I bought a new air tickets with Cathay Pacific 350$ to go to Singapore. its mean that I lost my ticket +500$ .and all this because you never informed me that my passport needs to be valid more than 6 months . you can see also in your letter its written there that my passport need to be valid there is not any thing about 6 months. if you was telling me that before I could change my passport. sow pleas I insist that you will pay me back half on my ticket that I lost + my expenses 500$. if I will not get it back my story will be all over in the internet about you I suffered a lot"
Cons: "Great service and got back earlier than expected."
Pros: "On time food"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Except for one time service everything else is good"
Pros: "Business class passengers use Qantas lounge in Brisbane - fresh and well stocked. Boarding was hassle free and flat beds were very comfortable. Crew were helpful while being very busy."
Cons: "We had seats in the centre but ate at totally different times. Left aisle and right aisle worked a different schedule - annoying. Entertainment very high tech but odd selections."
Pros: "Crew provided excellent service, seats were comfortable and food and drinks were great."
Pros: "The crew were friendly and efficient The flight left and arrived on time The plane was clean"
Cons: "The self service check in and baggage drop at Brisbane was not effective, requiring a lot of staff intervention and help"
Pros: "Helpful and friendly crew"
Cons: "never enough leg room in economy!"
Pros: "More leg room"
Cons: "Flight is an hour delayed ☹️. I don’t like the fact that u can’t choose ur own seat online"
Pros: "The food are great."
Cons: "Bathrooms are not as clean."
Cons: "I was pushed to a later flight with another company because the plane was overbooked."
Pros: "The flight attendants were pleasant and so was the flight."
Cons: "The food, I don't eat meat and would like some other options. For such a long flight there should definitely be more leg room and agility to recline"
Pros: "Schedule of the flight"
Cons: "The food can definitely improve a little more."
Pros: "Overall speaking CX flights quality has been declining over recent years"
Pros: "Crew were excellent, taking the time to introduce themselves and always responding promptly to requests"
Cons: "Service at times seemed a little disorganised. A minor issue though when compared to the overall service"
Pros: "Time Management and guidance. We enjoyed playing on screen. We viewed movie. How we are flying on Google maps. Hospitality is good."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Karen was nice."
Cons: "They took my drink I just bought before boarding the plane. The landing from the pilot wasn't great... by far the worst landing from all of my travels. The food for Vegetarian Lacto-Ovo Meal (VLML) - (A Vegetarian Meal that may also contain eggs and dairy products) was gross and the guy flight attendant wouldn't give me ice cream because I had a special meal. All I wanted for food was no meat; I didn't expect it would have no ice cream and no real food. I should've, could've taken one of the options on the food list and push away the meat myself."
Pros: "Great staff and good service Took care of us like a family thanks"
Cons: "Food can be better as we Indians don't eat brief and pork"
Pros: "Entertainment choices, wine, charger"
Cons: "Food Choice and Alcoholic choices"
Pros: "Excellent crew and nothing to complain apart from the economy seats being a bit stiff."
Pros: "The crew was very receptive even calling me by name also very attentive to my questions about the food and entertainment"
Cons: "The movie selection on the longest leg of my journey wasn’t very entertaining."
Pros: "Usual Cathay high standards - which is what one expects."
Cons: "Older A330 for short haul so not lie flat seats. Older IFE. Food, oddly, not great today (unusual for Cathay)."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth."
Cons: "Cathay Pacific needs to work on improving their cabin layout for B777. The inside is quite outdated."
Pros: "There was more leg room and the food was excellent!"
Cons: "Plane was very very warm"
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "We were all supoosed to sit together (there were 3 of us) but my sister got separated at the last minute and put on a center seat elsewhere with no explanation."
Pros: "Everything- I had 3 seats to relax and sleep. The food was excellent for the vegetarian option."
Cons: "n/a"
Pros: "The hard product of seats and plane was really nice. Flying the new A359, very comfortable. Lower cabin pressure felt really nice on the skin. Lie flat beds were a treat, and a massive entertainment system."
Cons: "The food was average. Had some chicken on pasta on the way over, chicken was dry and without sauce. My wife fainted on the flight and the flight attendant wasn't the most reassuring. Also her foot rest broke and they blamed her weight which was mean."
Pros: "Had 4 pairs of eye glasses taken from my golf bag. ! prescribtion, i pair reading and 2 pairs of sunglasses. bag was left open and contents spilled into the golf carry bag. Why did this happen and who did it??"
Pros: "Plane was newer & clean. Cabin crew was helpful & nice with my dad transferring from wheel chair to the plane"
Cons: "My family traveled with my 80 year old dad but Hong Kong ground crew would not allow us to board together. My wife & I had to carry all our carry on baggage since my mom was the only one allowed to board with him. All three previous flights the ground crew allowed all of us to stay as a family."
Pros: "It was good"
Cons: "I didn't got my Indian vegetarian food"
Pros: "This was the cheapest direct flight to Hong Kong so I bought it. Alsonivam a qantas member so got the points. It was a day trip for me to go so I wanted to get some sleep both ways. I'm 188cm and the seats are just a little bit close together to let you stretch your legs but ok. Entertainment system is good and window seat was ok."
Cons: "Meals are terrible - soft mushy potatoes and scrambled eggs need a revamp, device is s bit chuck it at you. Flight out was 1.15 hours late but suited me other people were put out."
