The staff and service of SIngapore Airlines is hard to beat. They are excellent. If they could only figure out their call center fiasco it would be a top airline. Attempting to call SQ is like trying to talk to the dead.
Pros: "Price is good"
Cons: "The food can be more improve"
Pros: "Crew were very gracious and kind."
Cons: "Food not as good as before"
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: "Crew, food, time all great."
Cons: "WiFi did not work. Flight data unavailable."
Pros: "Excellent crew and very well dressed and always smiling"
Cons: "The lights were switched off for a very long time. That can be avoided"

Pros: "Crew was polite."
Cons: "For such a long journey, the plane could have been nicer."
Cons: "We had to go through security after coming in from international and I went through a biometric scanner which I’ve done 100’s of Times I was very unnecessarily felt up for 10 minutes. I had shorts and a T-shirt on, and was pretty sure after the 1st round of groping that there was nothing there"
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."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful and courteous Entertainment system was pretty good Food was good. They could have given water bottles instead of asking for water."
Cons: "Seat comfort in Economy was just ok. Since this was a long haul flight, seats could have been better."
Pros: "Staff very attentive not disturbed after meal The smiles and demeanor of the staff"
Cons: "The flat bed is not comfotable needed help from attendanr all the time felt like i was constricted"
Cons: "Excellent flight service no"
Pros: "We loved the service, quality of food, entertainment, and cleanliness of Singapore Airlines flight!"

Pros: "Friendly crew I like that a lot. The diabetes food choice ecselent Thank you"
Cons: "The toilets were very dirty"
Cons: "In spite of ordering vegetarian food, was offered a non-vegetarian option and was told that is Asian vegetarian. Food quality was bad too."
Pros: "The cabin crew was great."
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: "The seats seem to have more leg room, food was actually good, and the staff was delightful."
Cons: "It was a 17 hour flight, but they made it bearable."
Pros: "food. schedule was on time"
Cons: "too long a flight 17 hours from SFO to Singapore"
Cons: "Foods serving were too slow for economy class. Not enough selections for entertainment."
Pros: "Entertainment even in economy class was excellent -- tons of movies, games, etc. Cabin crew were friendly. Bathroom was very large."
Cons: "In economy, seating was incredibly tight (very little legroom) and at least in my seat, very little reclining. For a 14 hour flight through the night, it made it very difficult to actually get any rest. Food was OK."
Pros: "Crews are truly nice and patient"
Cons: "Crews are very nice, food are not really good"
Pros: "Crew was super nice. Amazed at collection of Chinese movies and music. Great alcoholic beverage selection."

Cons: "It is really good experience. All the flight attendants are good"
Pros: "Such incredible staff. Always Willing to go above and beyond! I flew 17 hours with them and they made the flight a breeze. Great airline, will be flying with Singapore again"
Cons: "Really nothing. I loved flying with them."
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."
Cons: "Food can be improved. Couldn't eat pork or shrimps, so wished they served either vegetarian or chicken noodles instead of pork or stuff with shrimps. Fish, chicken, beef, or vegetarian options are better options."
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: "cramped uncomfortable seats freezing cold in the plane"
Pros: "great service. new plane. excellent video system."
Cons: "not much to complain about."
Pros: "Aircraft was OK."
Cons: "Cabin crew service can definitely be better. Should offer more snacks for long flights."
Cons: "I have no complaint"
Pros: "I loved the movie selection and the food options."
Cons: "The woman behind me kept insisting that I keep my chair in the upright position. With two crying babies on the plane, I was trying to relax and sleep as much as possible on the 12.5 hr flight. What bothered me even more is that when the woman asked the flight attendant to tell me to put my seat up, the flight attendant complied instead of telling the woman it was my seat to do as I wished. Why make the seats recline if they are going to bother the people behind? Why tell me to put my seat up if it was not a requirement for all (ie during take off or landing)? I did not appreciate this and it made my flight extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "Just as previous reviews mentioned, this is a top notch airline even when flying coach. The staff was courteous and attentive, the food was good and the flight overall was comfortable. I'd fly with Singapore again in a heartbeat."
Pros: "crew and service and food was excellent MJ from local staff went above and beyond to assist when i missed my connection she was kind, compassionate and efficient A+++++++"
Cons: "missed connection in Seoul. announcements should be louder, was in rest room opp the gate and did not hear any announcements for boarding text message should be sent if passenger missing."
Pros: "service was very Singapore airlines"
Cons: "food in coach was not as good as I remembered from other flights on Singapore"
Cons: "Having announcements in the lounge or a better choice of beverages on board would be great....also surprised there were zero reading materials available in business class"
Pros: "The Hanoi airport was great. Had hand sanitization centers and medical staff to monitor people during this corona virus outbreak. The plane was very nice and clean and they did not pass out blankets due to the virus. The crew was very nice and attentive."
Cons: "No help in sorting out visa issue. Flight canceled. Hope they treat me right on rebooking after embassy visit in AM."
Cons: "I purchased an exit row seat. Upon checking they confirmed my seat number but did not inform me of an equipment change so I was no longer in an exit row. The crew was great and allowed me to take the exit row seat after boarding was complete"
Pros: "Friendly crew. Short flight, very efficient"
Cons: "It’s satisfying everytime I fly with VietnamAirlines. Except that a kid behind me kicked my seat nonstop. Literally, nonstop!"
Cons: "Got me there, no worries."
Cons: "No beer or wine served on this international flight."
Pros: "Nuce crew and gentleness"

Cons: "Leg room is short, seats are average. Fine for a short flight."
Cons: "Reservation online"
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Everything was on time. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Very low weight allowance on checked bag. Attendant made me go take out cash from ATM to pay for extra weight. When I returned, a different attendant told me a cash price twice as much as the first attendant."
Pros: "Standard process"
Cons: "Informed gate personnel of a physical disability within our party. Instead of allowing us to board with another party utilizing the wheelchair service, they conveniently suggested that a line was also forming right before boarding the plane."
Pros: "The people at the counter helped me and were great"
Pros: "Onboarding went well and bagage was out fast in Nha Prang"
Cons: "Seats at Vietnam Airlines are hard and old. Do not sit well so would not take a long flight with them despite that the crew is very professional."
Pros: "Vietnam Airlines is doing an excellent job flying from the homeland to Paris and back. They have the last generation aeroplanes, decent seating in Economy Premium class. The crew is doing their jobs quickly and efficiently. I could sleep most of the 12 1/2 hours that it takes from SGN to CDG. And the prices are attractive, too."
Pros: "I can choose the seat"
Cons: "Boarding no advert, rush disorganized and unfair personal at the gate. In the plane no smiling, but i understand during the trip why. The staff got problem with the Vietnamese people who do not respect and listen the rules. Its really hard for them to work ."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for one hour."
Cons: "Airline assumed that I’m Cambodian, didn’t give me the arrival and customs card while i was asleep. Have to chase people in the terminal where can I get such cards."
Cons: "Hygiene of local passengers"
Pros: "Reliable, no nonsense, good price-quality ratio"
Cons: "This flight is almost always late. Connections in Paris tend to be difficult."
Pros: "Crew and airplane were great!"
Cons: "Food was not as good as I'd remembered on previous trips."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "Nothing worked on the flight and the food was poor. When we arrived in a massive rain storm we had to disembark the plane with stairs so we all got wet."
Pros: "The evening meal was far better than the mystery cold cuts and drowned slaw on the daytime flight out of Hanoi. Crew were pro -- if a little terse at times. Pilot launched and landed the aircraft successfully, always a big plus in my books."
Cons: "Seat was hard and somewhat uncomfortable. I wanted bottomless refills of white wine but the stewardesses had other ideas. Pours were on the skimpy side, too. Passengers were fiddling with their damned devices during takeoff and landing, and the crew shoulda laid down the law there."
Pros: "The food, service in the air, ground service, everything was excellent"
Cons: "The Vietnam airline has little consumer orientation"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and nice"
Cons: "The seats are very close together. It's hard to get comfortable"
Pros: "The flight on an A350 wide body was uneventful. I was in the "Premium Economy" section, which is sold as regular "Economy" for domestic flights. Excellent seating 2+4+2. The food was OK, not much to write home about, but they skipped coffee and tea because of turbulence (hardly perceptible)."
Cons: "Boarding process in HAN was very confusing: there was a change of gate announcement just when boarding was to start. Everybody went like crazy through the airport terminal looking for a Gate that does not exist. Followed by a counter-announcement. And then being bussed to the aircraft. People came on board up to the last minute... Arrival in SGN crazy for a different reason. All 300-some passengers were bussed again. Just that the ladders were not ready, and then whoever drove could not adjust them, and then the busses were not ready either. 25 minutes from landing to the luggage belts. Vietnamese airports need to work on their their procedures."
Pros: "Priority boarding for pregnant passengers, leggy and clean"
Cons: "No personal service, meaning have to fill out the same waiver of liability every time we fly, even if flights are just a few days apart."
Pros: "Bottled water and ample leg room pretty much sums up this short flight from Phu Quoc to SGN."
Cons: "Crew at check-in counter was not friendly or helpful. Even though our pregnancy was documented a week earlier by Vietnam Airlines, she made us go through the same process, though we showed her we had the same form already in our possession."
Pros: "Provided food for only a 3 hour flight"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit slow (still arrived on time)"
Pros: "Early check in was not a problem and baggage check in weight is great and not paying for it."
Cons: "This flight seems more and more every time we take an econo flight which, should be cheaper then what you get for pricing. No fluff flight only I can see the different is the baggage weight you can take is only the extra. Seem we stayed on the tar mac for a while flying out and flying in Ho Chi which, the air movement in the cabin was not that great at all and little stuffy and warm. One thing leaving out of Term 3 at Singapore if you go thru Immegration and want to eat the food is not great all and stay away from Burger King and for the 3rd time got sick again! Worst Burger Jiont in the World ever! From no soda, the chicken nuggets tasting like fish, and the Burgees did not taste like burger very sickening! Thier are a rip-off to still wanted everyone to pay full price for the a meal and without no drink and pay extra for water and wanted people to pay for ice. Burger King Co. really need to take hard look at this Joint for very bad foods serving people and getting them sick and ripping people off with money. Seats are small and compact and the seat belt for the airline is small for a bigger person and not meaning over weight."
Pros: "Everything! The service, friendliness, food, movies, clean restroom, etc."
Cons: "The boarding is disorganized and confused that passengers are pushing each other in a bit of chaotic! Need lot of improvements."
Pros: "Staff were excellent. Plane was nice and clean. I would not hesitate to fly with then again."
Pros: "Crew on board was responsive and really helpful with regard of needs of passengers. Food tastes really good. Decent amount of leg room, considering it's economy class."
Cons: "We had a flight at 11am in korea with vietnam airlines heading back to Singapore. We had to queue an hour and a half for our boarding pass and check in, which makes it unbelievable how is that possible. We were there early since 815am, and only got our boarding around 10am. We nearly missed our flight as there were queue all around for security check. I guess this is the first and the last time i will travel with Vietnam Airlines."
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "They deal very well with the handicapped. Very respectful and patient"
Pros: "The staff were very nice."
Cons: "I would like a few more western choices of food in the business lounge"
Cons: "I am average height for a male and my femur bone was the exact length between seats - my knees were jammed against the seat in front of me. Not a comfortable flight but at least it was short."
Cons: "The flight attendants on China airline was terrible with unacceptable attitude, very rude and consantly trying to insult customer especially to those that don't speak their Chinese language. I would never fly with China airline again."
Pros: "The flight attendants were excellent! The flight went smoothly and on time!"
Pros: "Plane was comfy and neat. No food was served as it was only a short flight which was fine."
Cons: "Waiting on the tarmac for about 30-45 minutes before take-off with no explanation from the pilots was a bit annoying."
Pros: "All services are better than before a lot"
Pros: "Food was tasty. Staff very courteous"
Pros: "Crew was nice. and spoke English better than the crew on the previous, longer flight."
Cons: "No vegetarian food options (besides not offering a regular option, as many airlines do now, even after I requested a vegetarian meal, there was none). In addition, the planes were old. Business was not nearly as comfortable as some other airlines. The entertainment was very bad -- This shorter flight (Even in business class) had no personal entertainment at all! Will not fly with Vietnam again..."
Pros: "Everything was great in the flight. It felt fantastic to be treated like a princess."
Pros: "Flight was good - very smooth. The food seemed okay but they ran out of non-red meat options."
Cons: "They literally broke my brand new piece of luggage. I've sent them an email but haven't heard a word from them. In flight staff were not very friendly or very helpful. No entertainment."
Pros: "The staffs on China airline were very attentive and friendly. Love the new Boeing 777 plane. The food overall were decent. Smooth flight the entire trip. Definitely will fly China again."
