Pros: "Crews were great. Seats space could be better ... overall caring & attentiveness of crew members make a lot of difference."

Now I feel like I was away somewhere and Singapore Airlines has changed dramatically....Must be a lot of moving pieces have changed that I was wondering again during my journey whether I was really flying Singapore Airlines..."

Cons: "food was disgusting"

Pros: "Ok boarding, plane was new, entertainment system was up to date"
Cons: "Premium economy service is even worse than economy as crew is never around and busy in economy. Seats are bigger but not really comfortable. Food is same as economy. Doesn't worth it to buy premium economy."

Pros: "Singapore airlines never disappoints"

Cons: "Flat bed in business class was disappointing. No way anyone taller than 6’ could stretch out. Overall, it was an inferior experience to business class on Cathay Pacific, which sets the standard IMO."

Pros: "Everything food was better selection and allowed me to taste bali food before arriving. The seats were comfortable on the last plane Thank god"

Cons: "I liked everything"

Pros: "I like everything crew, etc"
Cons: "Nothing reallly"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Seating was spacious, crew was attentive. Boarding was efficient."
Cons: "The food choice was not pleasing to me."

Pros: "With Singapore Airlines the service is always good I actually paid extra to fly them after three weeks in India"
Cons: "Older plane with a fair amount of broken down details Plugs don’t all work, magazine pocket had rips, etc.... could be that they allocate resources to different markets"

Pros: "Everything else"
Cons: "Food was less than marginal"

Pros: "Good seats with great screens. Usb, headphone jack that works with regular headphones, and a regular power outlet! Tray tables upgraded overall and have a mirror behind a slide. Even the seatback pockets are better with multiple pockets including one that fits most mobile phones. The windows turn tinted blue instead of drawing shades down—what?!"
Cons: "would like regular water bottles to be available for drinking"

Pros: "I reallyiked th service from the crew"
Cons: "I didn’t like the silk air mainly on my itinerary. It was an old flight with cloth on the back of the flights a bit torn. No entertainment in flight for silk air. That was a bad flight."

Pros: "Friendly crew I like that a lot. The diabetes food choice ecselent Thank you"

Pros: "Great entertainment system for a short haul fl flight"
Cons: "Terrible food"

Pros: "Service by the crew was great"
Cons: "Food in the economy class was not so great Options provided were not tasty. Each meal tasted same. No kid option available. Tastier options available on other major international flights."

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: "EVERYTHING was great...from check in to the entire experience on board. Extremely friendly staff to delicious food and a great choice of beverages! Clean and tidy aircraft with lots of extra amenities. Pleasant flight, pleasant arrival. Always a great way to travel!"
Cons: ""Customs" at JFK came to an entire halt. All passengers where stuck in the welcome hall for 1h, without any information, why held there and why nothing was moving forward. All CBP booths were closed, but 8 (eight!) employees, who normally direct arriving passengers to the kiosk-machines where hanging out in two groups sharing private stories and having laughs instead of at least informing passengers, what was going on. Lots of passengers where outraged...a couple in their mid 70s in front of us had to sit down on the floor, since they had circulation problems from standing in line so long. Sadly, JFK isn't what it used to be anymore."

Pros: "More leg room than other airlines, superb service and excellent food!"

Pros: "Food was ok"
Cons: "Entertainment system are old age and poor quality TFT screen"

Pros: "The people were excellent."
Cons: "I had planned to check an extra piece of luggage, gifts and purchases for church needs. They wanted to charge me $3,655(!!!) for that. Absurd. I had to leave the suitcase behind. I will probably fly on a different airline whenever I go to Russia now."

Cons: "Our flight to Bali was cancelled due to the volcano eruption. We did not receive any compensation, but Singapore/Silk Airlines told us they were able to get us a flight home to LAX instead, but that it wouldn't be until the next day. We spent money on a hotel and food and waited until the next morning, got to the airport early for check in only to find that Singapore/Silk had in fact, given up our seats that they had promised us. They said that we now would have to wait another day just to get a flight from Singapore to LAX. We asked to speak with a manager, and eventually were able to get two seats due to cancellations. This was intended to be a very special and romantic trip that was essentially ruined. Since no one could have anticipated that the volcano would cause cancellation, we should be refunded for our flights. We are so crushed that we did not get to go to Bali, and now we may NEVER get to go because we are out of money. At the VERY least, the leg of our flights from Singapore to Bali, and Bali to Singapore, should be refunded. We are extremely disappointed."

Cons: "one of the oldest planes i ever used"

Pros: "Crew very good as was entertainments system"
Cons: "You cannot disguise the age of the 777, 30 year old design. Noisy and basic compared to 380, 350."

Cons: "In flight crew manager in greenish dress was rude! Seemed like there weren’t enough restrooms on flight."

Pros: "The service and the flight to and from Narita Airport."

Pros: "Efficient boarding and arrival"
Cons: "Old plane, entertainment system is outdated, food not good and they went out of the good stuff (e.g. only seafood noodles for breakfast?!)"

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Old planes and screens."

Pros: "Upgraded to biz class, which was fantastic"

Pros: "Punctuality"
Cons: "Food wise can be improved. But for flight meat from ecomnomy class; it's considered good enough."

Pros: "The choices for entertainment were excellent! I was never bored for a second on my 20++ hours of flight. I love how they gave us in-ear earphones instead of the normal airline headphones that keep on sliding off."
Cons: "It was quite difficult for me to get comfortable. Maybe it's due to my shortness, I can't really rest my head that well"

Pros: "Everything is excellent!"

Pros: "Cabin crew are always great"
Cons: "Cabin fitout is getting tired and dated. Etihad leaves it for dead in first class"

Pros: "The air stewardesses took their time to get back to me about a question I posed to them. It took 2 stewardesses and 3 efforts."

Cons: "cramped uncomfortable seats freezing cold"

Pros: "Crew is remarkable"

Pros: "For as long 14 hour journey they sure make it comfortable."

Pros: "Good seats, personal TV with movies and good shows. They gave us socks, blamkets, pillows headphones, etc."
Cons: "The crew was chronically rude to me. They would skip me when handing out beverages to everyone. I was lied to and passed down the beaurocracy over issues with my Stopover Holiday packages. They lost my bags. In Hong kong, I was told the designated smoking area in the terminal was close and the steward encouraged me to go...I almost missed the flight even though I didn't even make it to where she directed me. It was not close, she was a liar. They lost my bags. They kept calling me sir despite my corrections and obvious female anatomy. They had no remorse or apologies for their errors"

Pros: "The crew and inflight food and entertainment was good. The person on the transfer desk was very helpful."
Cons: "We were unable to use the website to check-in online, which meant we had to fly to Manchester to check-in. Which is very poor given modern technology. (We were able to check in on line for the flight from Houston)"

Pros: "The staff was very friendly and helpful. I got plenty of meals and they easily accommodated my vegetarian diet!"

Pros: "The plane cabin, the ease of seat selection, friendly helpful cabin crew, quality and choice of food, facilities in the toilets (mouth wash, hand cream, etc), choice of entertainment, early arrival, the price."
Cons: "That I could not afford to travel first class! which must have been marvellous when economy so good."

Pros: "The ground staff in Sydney!"
Cons: "From the moment we checked in in Singapore there was no service. Having travelled first class and Economy before with Singapore I was very disappointed with Business class. My husband and daughter were in First Class. The service was below average to say the least - more training required from check in to on board - (in Sydney the staff on the ground went above and beyond) In Singapore it was very fake and contained no sincerity. The lounge itself was also ordinary compared to others, no Amenity kits or PJs in business class - even Virgin Australia has that! I was so excited to be travelling Singapore again given past experiences but now Im not sure I will want to fly them again."

Cons: "The video screens need to be upgraded"

Pros: "Crew was outstanding"
Cons: "No sound on my entertainment system"
