Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew was super nice and the food was good (for plane food)! Really appreciated that they had snacks and chocolate on hand for hungry passengers throughout the flight. A 17 hour plane ride is never the best, but Singapore Air made it as pleasant as possible. Also, we booked on Kayak and was routed through a third party vendor JustFly, which I was a little worried about - but our booking went off without a hitch."
Pros: "I liked that on the longest leg of my trip - I had an entire row to myself to stretch out. Im old, things like that are important...along with compression socks...haha!"
Cons: "I think the food - I dont know exactly what, because we're on a plane - but I think it could be a bit more appealing? More greens, colors? Not sure, but it was okay."

Pros: "Handset to control screen didn’t work. Airline reimbursed me with $75 voucher for inflight duty-free shop."
Cons: "Aircrew took my carry on away while I was waiting to board saying it was too large; left me without the essential items I wanted during the 19.5 hours in the air and two plane changes. Other people were allowed to keep carry ons bigger than mine so I don't understand why they did this."

Cons: "1. Flight seats are too congested on flight.. 2. Not too many indian movie choices 3. Some reason, while booking the flight, the KAYAK site had not asked for food choice. And the airline does not carry any extra vegetarian food. This had caused some inconvenience."
Cons: "Seats in economic class are not too contraint in space, food was good and entertainment system quite nice with large si play screen and large movie selection"
Pros: "The service from the Singapore Airlines is always impeccable. The food is delicious. The business class seat is spacious and wider than all the US airlines. There are plenty storage space in your seat space. The entertainment system has many choices and has a lot new release movies and shows."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the ride on Boeing 777 is not as smooth as the Airbus'. The noise in the cabin is louder. The seat is comfortable but the bed is not. First, the flat bed is not transformed by a button and it needs a physical person to flip it over. The mat is thin and I can feel some hard edges while lying down. The noise from the engine transmits to the bed and it is hard to sleep even with the noise cancellation headphone."
Pros: "Premium economy"
Pros: "Service and food"
Pros: "food. schedule was on time"
Pros: "The service crew served us well. They are friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Too many Indian movies"

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: "All good"
Pros: "Crew, plane, punctuality"
Pros: "Overall treatment of boarding & crew staff was courteous, friendly & helpful. Movies selections were great but I was too tired to watch."

Pros: "Entertainment was awesome. Boarding was fast."
Cons: "Not enough food served (only two meals on a sixteen hour flight) and tasted okay. Crew was not all friendly."
Cons: "Singapore Airlines always boast themselves as first class service. That is just bs. At night when I was hungry, I asked the flight attendant for some snack, both a male and a female served at my cabin said, "we don't have that." I expected SQ staff to serve one step further, instead of stopping at a no. Can't you recommend something? Throughout the entire trip, whenever I asked something, the way they answered always made me feel that I was a trouble to them. Is it because I was in an economy class and that's how you treat me? SQ, you may want to change what you are proud of. It's no longer a first class service, at least not to us poor economy class passengers."

Cons: "Food needs improvement"
Pros: "The service is really good. The only downside is that you have to be in Doha. But it’s always nice to leave Doha."

Cons: "Meals are absolutly terrible, confort desaster, and hostess unqualified"
Pros: "The seat was ok and the food was good."
Cons: "Though the staff was friendly, I found them a bit unhelpful. I was literally holding three bags and a toddler in my arms, and passed at least three airline crew members. However, not one of them even bothered offering for help. I don’t expect that from a world class airline."

Pros: "Left on time, arrived on time. Children aboard did not cry !uch."

Pros: "The on flight entertainment is great. It’s very accommodating especially for long flights."
Cons: "Onboarding was ridiculous. They merged two gates together with no instructions to the large crowd of people boarding the plane. We were scheduled to start boarding at a certain time and we didn’t actually board until 45 minutes later. When we asked the attendants when we would begin boarding and did they have any instructions they were extremely rude, laughing with one another and taking selfies. When we we asked for the third time they brushed us off with a time frame. It was extremely disappointing."
Pros: "Overall a good service with good food."
Cons: "When flying from New Zealand to Doha, we departed Auckland at 15h25 and due to the time zone, most passengers body clocks would have been expecting sleep within a few hours. However we were flying West and thus into daylight. Sadly the window seated passengers were not asked to close their window blinds to block out the sunlight and many were left open. This made the cabin very bright and a difficult environment in which to sleep. Too much advertising before the on board videos, but otherwise content was good."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful. And the food choices were good."
Cons: "Everything !!!"
Pros: "Individual service, happy and natural looking crew, comfort and company aim."
Pros: "The entertainment was good without any hiccups"

Pros: "Much of your service is excellent!"
Cons: "Although the very well crafted advertisement for Qatar at beginning of watching each movie is partially beautiful, I personally find it a bit offensive as a woman the clear emphasis on "my son, this watch and all that is mine will be yours", my daughter, your highest moment will be to get married. My disturbance with what I experience as sexist, worsened each time I saw this. Luckily I learnt how to fast forward, but the sexism of this left me disturbed. so although in reality much of your service is excellent, this advertising of a sexist world view was too disturbing to ignore. I hope my comments are helpful to you in considering that many women in the world now expect their fathers to consider passing on a fair share of their resources to their daughters as well."
Cons: "no one came to help even after asking for assistance"
Pros: "On time departure, friendly crew. Comfortable seats for economy class, plenty of entertainment options. A pleasant experience"

Cons: "About halfway through the flight the bathrooms definitely needed cleaned. By the end of the flight they were disgusting, with toilets and sinks clogged and no tissue. I'm really surprised Emirates allowed this to happen, because everything else was great."
Pros: "The crew were attentive and friendly."
Pros: "Alexandra is just not a pretty face."
Cons: "I should have got a premium economy, my section was too cramped."
Pros: "Timing of flight"
Cons: "Baggage policy has changed and has become too restrictive. Wieight and size and number of checked baggage is below competitors for transatlantic flights.

Cons: "I haven’t received my bag yet. It’s been 4 days"
Pros: "The food was good, good intertainment options"

Cons: "had kids on board and were crying half the time could not rest Although the flight crew tried thier best. Landing was too not comfortable-dropped down very fast."
Cons: "The seating room in the 747 with 10 seats per row is limiting and uncomfortable. The passenger beside me was pushing well into my space, and the rambunctious flight attendants kept marching right into me and banging my seat with the cart, once also spilling water all over me. (Though she was very nice about it, and I wasn’t upset with her personally.)"
Cons: "Despite me telling the crew a number of times that he temperature was FAR too low, no change was made. Now I am not a first time flyer and I know flights can get cold. I had a sweatshirt, socks, shoes, two blankets wrapped and it was still cold to the point that I put the blanket over my head. When I looked around the flight almost every single person was completely wrapped in blankets and had hoods, sarees, and scarves wrapped around their heads. I had my 1 year old infant who already had a head cold that I feel was worsened by the cold dry air. I spent my first few days in Kolkata pretty sick. I know the cold air doesn’t cause the illness but it certainly worsened any stuffy nose I had into a full blown cold and chest congestion. I was VERY upset by the discomfort on this flight especially after having a wonderful flight with Emirates from New York to Dubai. I really felt like the crew did not care despite clear discomfort the passengers were feeling. It was incredible how visible the discomfort was yet nothing was done to fix the temperature. The freezing cold air kept blowing right on everyone theoughout the flight."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Service from crew slow and when you ask for something they sometimes forget to bring it"
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "I travelled internationally after 4 years. When I boarded my flight in New York, nobody cared to weigh my carry obs. However at my transit, while I was about to board the next flight, they weighed it and asked me to pay 100$ extra. If the airlines didn't allow more than 7 kilos carry on, they should have weighed it at the beginning of my trip since I had lots of room left in my check in and would have adjusted the luggage."
Pros: "The aircraft (a 777) and the on-board amenities and service."

Cons: "Pizzas were pretty bad. Biggest problem was the arrival airport. Dulles is a poor airport. The people movers at arrival for more than 400 passengers are really inconvenient. How 'bout using BWI instead?"
Pros: "It felt comfortable."
Pros: "The service was wonderful"
Pros: "Loved the Emirates experience as always, esp the in-flight experience (incl food) and entertainment."
Cons: "Boarding at JFK in New York could've been more organized. People were crowding near the gate and a line was formed much before the authorities actually allowed people to board. It was a long wait. And I wasn't able to hear my zone being called. Captain's announcements in the flights were also either not loud enough or not intelligible."

Pros: "Compared to other airlines, especially trips to and from Europe, this one was great! I will try to fly Emirates every time! I especially appreciated the variety and abundance of choices for entertainment. Eight hours just flew."

Cons: "Was required to check my small roll aboard because I had a backpack, while other passengers were allowed to carry on multiple large items."

Pros: "The good was good and the staff treated us with respect."
Cons: "When I reached at Dubai l could not get a seat to come to Boston as they had overbooked. But it was a blessing for me as I was given a free round trip ticket from Boston to Kenya to use within one year and for that I thank you."

Cons: "They gave 2 veggie meals to mu big strapping men seat mates and the ignored me entirely!"
Pros: "I enjoyed the flights attendants attentiveness and friendliness. The food was surprisingly good (I enjoyed a nice curry dish); we appreciated the portions as well as snacks on our long flight. The music and video selection also made for a much more pleasant flight. The plane was newer and offered features like USB charging ports. Would definitely fly British Airways again!"
Cons: "My only complaint would be the tightness (closeness of rows) of the seats. But it’s coach, so not much can be done there. They were at least comfortable and reclined quite a bit."
Pros: "Staff were friendly."
Cons: "Check-in did not include my TSA-Pre or airline frequent flyer membership. Food was stale and inedible."
Pros: "BA is reliable in many respects. 1- Timely 2- Friendly staff 3- Decent food served in a timely manner 4- In a BA flight, you know exactly what you get"
Cons: "The airlines are pushing people to upgrade with those ever shrinking seats.

That's not a way to spend 9+ hours"
Cons: "outdated inflight entertainment system generally worn and old plane"
Cons: "Entertainment and food were terrible. Plane was filthy and ancient. Crew was inattentive and we were treated poorly for bringing a child’s seat on the plane. It was hot the entire 9 hour flight. I will pay extra not to fly BA again."

Pros: "Could be better"
Pros: "Went smoothly and on tome."
Pros: "Plane was comfortable. Seats were not bad. Spent most of the flight asleep."
Cons: "Part was a code share with AA. When BA transfered the data to AA, they lost the seat assignments which I found out about at the last minute and ended up spending almost $400 to get acceptable seats. Could not get boarding passes at our origin in Rome and had to wait in line at LHR. Boarding seemed very disorganized."
Pros: "We were given a snack & drinks. You checked my 2nd bag free which was FABULOUS so I didn't have to deal with gate checking when you asked for us to do that."

Pros: "Everyone was very friendly and helpful. My only complaint is the turbulence, but there's nothing hat can be done about that."
Cons: "Four hours before departure, the flight was canceled! Unfortunately, the ticket workers were too few in trying to reboot all the passengers. I was transferred to United after an hour and a half wait but was sent back to Aer Lingus (who was operating the flight for BA) by United because the Aer Lingus ticket personnel made the reservation on United but failed to provide the information necessary to generate the ticket. Never British Airways/ Aer Lingus again!"
Pros: "Crew. They were polite and attentive to passangers"
Cons: "Boarding process was confusing. On flight entretaiment very limited"
Cons: "We arrived over an hour early to bag check for our flight, stood around for 30 minutes while the staff chatted, and then when they finally started checking bags, we were told our flight was already closed. When we said we'd been waiting they called us liars and forced us out of the line. We had to stay in Paris 2 more days."

Pros: "Quick and a clean aircraft"
Cons: "Nothing special to say"
Pros: "Up and down in all the right places and we were on time."

Pros: "Spacious seats, short duration."
Cons: "Food can be better."

Pros: "I found the movie selections to be average in all genres. Although i am a person of Indian origin but i saw okay collection in all genres. I would rate it 3 out of 5. They could do better in some regional movies like Bengali and Punjabi and add some latest hollywood movies around 6 months to 1 yr old. Latest hindi movie selection was Good."
Cons: "The screen quality was very very bad. Neither the touchscreen nor the remote worked. I literally had to pound on the screen to make a selection rather than a gentle touch. The crew tried fixing by resetting it from some control they had but didn’t work. I somehow managed to play a movie by pounding on screen since I had nothing to do on a 16 hr flight from SFO to Delhi. I am a very frequent international traveler and have never seen a similar problem or issue with any other airline."
Pros: "Food was ok. Crew was ok."

Not able to interface with any of the thing as none is working fine. - Even the charging point is not working to keep myself entertained in one way or other for such a long journey. - The screen monitor power buttons not working, continuously flashing the light on my eye which is not allowing me to sleep peacefully. - Toilets are not clean and not up to the basic standards which at least found in domestic flights"
