Airline reviews

Pros: "The experience was really good. I’ll be using JAL again."
Cons: "Keep doing a good job."

Pros: "JAL lounge at Haneda was the best I've ever been in. The Business Class configuration is terrific -- as private as can be on an airplane, without going First. And the JAL staff, on the ground as well as in the air, are Grade A diplomats, counselors, and -- in a word -- professionals. Which is sorely lacking in US air carriers, who don't seem to understand that air travel is a service industry, and to excel in a service industry, PEOPLE are most important to the customers. Specifically, having enough people: US airline employees are well-trained professionals too, but "corporate" consistently under-hires/deploys, which leaves employees juggling far too much at once, which degrades the service experience for the customer. Yeah, I get "the bottom line," but service industry customers will always go to businesses that offer better service. Ok, rant over. JAL is tops."
Cons: "Security and Immigration at Tokyo Haneda is harder than at US airports, but that's to be expected and nothing that JAL can control."

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: "The level of care and attention that was given to my comfort during the flight was extraordinary. Also the economy was much better than any economy i've ever come to expect from other airlines."

Pros: "Collectively, my new wife and I have travelled through dozens of different airlines, including 8-10 international flights, and our journey with Korean Air was the best flight experience we have ever had. The staff was so attentive, the selection of Korean music, and the access to movies, and the comfort of even Economy class was fantastic. Despite the long hours spent on board, Korean Air made it as comfortable as possible.

I had to keep adjusting my body because my lower back was in so much pain. I ordered a kosher meal for both my sister and I but they only bought it for her. When I asked where was mine they said they didn’t see my name when I was the one who bought the tickets. It was extremely frustrating. I will never fly on this airline again."

I show up for new departure time. Plane left six minutes earlier. First thanks for the bad information. Second thanks for not paging me. Third I don't care when the plane is supposed to leave. Just tell me what time to be at the gate so I can stand around after an international flight. Oh and if a flight attendee to squawk rudely at a paying customer when we do land, why I'd just have to ask myself AGAIN ... why do I fly United?"

When the turbulence died down, the flight attendants did not bother to complete the food service for snacks or drinks ordered. I had to get up and ask twice. They were not present much at all in BUSINESS CLASS. So that's why I rated the experience as poor. The international food choices are poor. They do not taste good. I think I have to stop flying ANA.

There should have been a breakfast served prior to landing, but no food service after 1 a.m. though flight arrived at 7:40 a.m. Timing of meals was not convenient for me at all. They wake you up at 1 a.m. for your main dinner. I would have preferred to sleep until 5 a.m. then have a good breakfast. The amenity kit in Business Class was substandard when compared to other airlines"

Cons: "Food focused on Japan on both legs, LAX to NRT and NRT to SIN. Variety would have been nice."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Everything. Singapore Airlines had a great reputation. Imagine my disappointment. It was a horrible flight. The crew was nice enough, but inattentive. The food, if such a term may be applied here, was inedible. Just vile. In flight entertainment was a complete joke. Boarding was awful, but it always is. Seats were extremely uncomfortable. This racket is the ultimate way to rip somebody off of $1000. Horrible."

Pros: "The inflight entertainment was great, lots of movie selections"
Cons: "The leg room was horrible. Honestly the worst space I've ever had in a flight. I was shocked considering Singapore air is considered one of the best airlines"

Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "No complaints at all. They are very professional and I would chose them again."

Pros: "Amazing service and comfortable lay flat bed"

Pros: "Clean aircraft. First rate and very attentive cabin staff. High Quality food and mid flight snacks. Its clear a lot of thought has gone into the making and running of this airline. My first experience and quite frankly I will fly SIA whenever possible."
Cons: "Cabin was to me a little warm during initial taxi at LAX. But not overly so."

Pros: "Ease of checking. Empty seat between us"
Cons: "Can't upgrade with krisflyer miles"

Pros: "The aircraft was clean, new, spacious and quiet. The bathrooms were regularly maintained. The food quality, selection and quantity was excellent for the economy class. Even the serving utensils were solid metal and had a very high quality feel to it. Having an endless supply of mid flight snacks was also appreciatd I always like the warm wet towels, which were offered at take off and landing. The entertainment choices were endless, but because it had USB and regular power, I was able to work on my laptop and listen to my podcasts on phone without worrying about running out of battery."
Cons: "The crew lacked its usual pep and cheer. For some reason they seemed very introverted and tired. First time on Singapore Airline that I noticed. The amenities kit was a bit on the cheap side. Also, only the supplied two prong headphones could be used with the entertainment system, I would have preferred an option to use my high end ones -- this was the main reason I chose to just work and listen to my own music/podcasts instead of watching a movie. We boarded and disembarked through the business sections and the aisles were too narrow. The announcements were hard to hear and the temperature was set too low for half of the flight (to kept fluctuating requiring constant adjustment of blanket/jacket). Having said that will keep flying them."

Pros: "Touch screen entertainment system with great variety of programs. Good food, clean cabin, friendly crews. I'd fly again on Singapore Air over other domestic airlines and Japanese airlines."
Cons: "Sound quality of ear buds was not good. No issues if you travel with your own."

Pros: "Huge selection of movies Towel service, socks, and toothbrush for economy class Snacks included entire chocolate bars! Friendly staff"

Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "The leg rests didn't have enough room to be useful. I'm only 5'10", which is average, not tall, so they should have had more legroom."

Pros: "everything, excellent job"

Pros: "Everything in this flight is very good. Next traveling time I will consider this airline first!!"

Pros: "The service is amazing. The stewardess are always smilin and very helpful. If you'd like anything extra, just ask and they'll bring it right over. The entertainment onboard was top notch"
Cons: "I would have wished for better back supported seats. 14hrs on a flight isn't quiet the best."

Pros: "Professional, courteous, high-quality all around from food, to service, to entertainment options. Singapore Airlines is first class all the way."
Cons: "None."

Pros: "The food, the seating, the upgrade, the very polite and attentive staff. I thanked them, and for that, they gave me a hand written note and a set of cards. So sweet. Totally worth it to fly Singapore."
Cons: "I didn't like how Vayasan and Singapore airlines telephone check in both claimed they could not upgrade. It was part of the policy/seating I bought. They were wrong, the airlines at San Francisco airport did it without blinking, after checking my visa status."

Pros: "Singapore airlines was also great and I very much enjoyed that flight even though it was 10 or more hours. The good was great and same for the entertainment . The whole flight was very pleasant . Also I loved the steamed towels that was something i haven't had on a flight before ."

Pros: "The stewardesses were extremely professional- attentive & pleasant. The toilet was well equipped. There was no delay in taking off Boarding was orderly & efficient & quick and so was disembarking. The snacks were nice- ice cream, apples, chops, sandwiches. Many other airlines don't even provide snacks on these long flights. The seats in wconomy were roomy & confortable."
Cons: "I can't think of anything that was bad but I didn't enjoy the breakfast. I would have preferred an American breakfast. It was a mixture of shrimp, potato & brocolli. Ivwould have pregerred a criossant & yogurt to the tiramisu & roll."

Pros: "The flight attendants were super attentive and took great care of me, even bringing me headache medicine."
Cons: "I was in a front row seat which meant using my table in the armrest would wake up my neighbor. (Not a big deal but a little awkward) It was also hard to sleep because the seats didn't recline enough."

Pros: "It was the best service ive ever had. The flight attendants came right away and were always coming up the aisle making sure we eye well hydrated and fed"

Pros: "The flight staff were very friendly and always seemed to be eager to help all the passengers. The menu on the flight was also excellent. Wonderful flight"
Cons: "The layover in Japan was not exactly what I hoped for but I managed OK. Short layovers work better for me."

Pros: "Everything was very good. Great service smooth flight, landed early in Singapore."

Pros: "The crew was amazing. Food was great. Clean bathrooms. Great entertainment."
Cons: "We had our passports and boarding passes checked five times in the course of 2 minutes by five different people one after the next. My cabin luggage was searched right before boarding. I appreciate the need for security, but that was excessive and unnecessary. In the peak of the Corona virus craze, the security made all passengers take off shoes and walk without any protection. This is not Qatar Airways doing - New York JFK security B S, but I am sure airways companies have some say to change it."

Pros: "Easy Boarding, nice crew"
Cons: "More vegetarian food options"

Pros: "Crew AMAZING. Service was impeccable. Food and wine were interesting and varied. Absolutely amazing comfort."
Cons: "Media choices were not interesting to me. Used my own device instead."

Cons: "Qatar airport duplicTe security check"

Cons: "The flight was excellent and the service was impeccable. The attention that they gave all the passengers including myself was excellent. Would Recomend to take Qatar from Bombay to Miami"

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."

Cons: "Seat comfort"

Pros: "Liked the smoothness on boarding and the organization. Keep it up!"
Cons: "Attitude of some of the flight attendants and more entertainment."

Pros: "The service of the cabin was great!"
Cons: "The food was not of the quality I would have expected from the expectation created by the airlines marketing. We boarded close to a full hour later than scheduled and the boarding process was very slow."

Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "Horrible flight experience and old planes without USB plug inn and no seat entertainment"

Cons: "Even though we landed in Doha before our connection left ( barely-20 min)on Qatar airways, they would not hold the connecting flight for the 7 of us who were connecting. This was extremely disappointing as we then lost a full 8 hours of our first day arrival. If they schedule you for a 45 minute connecting flight, I suggest you book a later one. Our flight from NYC left on time but was 20 min late landing. Their only compensation to us all was use of the airport lounge in Doha ( quite nice with free food wine and showers, but would rather have had the extra day in Bali."

Pros: "Flight services"
Cons: "We were supposed to fly on 04/04/18 but our Flight was cancelled due to technical problem"

Cons: "Connecting Qatar flight should have been held, instead wen had to spend 9 hours in the airport until next flight"

Pros: "Hotel to freshen up was great idea"
Cons: "Visa took forever. Ended having only 2 hours at the hotel"

Cons: "Qatar airways should allocate separate seating for families. The crowd was generally composed of labour from Qatar and other middle eastern countries making the flight an unpleasant experience. It felt like going to a factory shift at 4 in the morning."

Pros: "Terry was wonderful"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They cancelled my trip"

Pros: "QR528 landed in Chennai at 01.50 hrs IST on time was out of plane in 10 mins and then the endless wait for my baggage after immigration check, being a Indian citizen no issues but was able to collect my baggage at 3.02 hrs Doha - Chn flying time 3.50hrs, baggage collection 50 mins, its bizzare & absurd"

Cons: "I’m a 6’3” in shape man. I selected the bulkhead seats for extra leg room. Great crew, but my shoulders stuck past the seat edge 3” on both sides."

Pros: "The cabin crew was very helpful and cheerful and everyone had a smile on their face."
Cons: "Entertainment devices are slow to respond."

Pros: "12 hrs transit must give Hotel, without Hotel it was bad!"
Cons: "More than 10 hrs transit must give Hotel !!"

Pros: "Cabin was very nice with modern equipment and food and refreshments were provided frequently. Entertainment options were great too. Cabin crew were very pleasant."
Cons: "Connecting flight from Philadelphia to Doha was delayed by 5 hours due to some technical errors. By the time we arrived in Doha, there were no more planes heading to Manila. We did get booked a free night's stay in a hotel in Doha along with transport to the airport"

Pros: "The Qatar Airways price."

Pros: "Wonderful airline! Very nice and friendly staff. I will fly with them again."

Pros: "I was really impressed by how nice caring and wonderful were the flight attendants!!! Excellent service!!! Great food!!!"

Pros: "This was car better than most flights I've been on in the US. Lots of leg room excellent entertainment system good service and customer care."

Pros: "Okay"
Cons: "Okay"

Pros: "The plane number one is very good but the onther one to cairo is good not like the first"

Pros: "The entertainment options were fantastic! The flight attendants were very cordial and hardworking."
Cons: "I was very pleased with my flight. I really have I complaints."

Pros: "Boarding priority, on-board service priority and children oriented service. Biggest leg room in any economy flight. Best entertainment program (Onyx One). Genuinely friendly crew."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "No lie flat seats."

Pros: "New plane. Decent legroom."
Cons: "Not enough food was served for a 16.5 hour flight."

Pros: "I liked that it was empty and I could lie down."

Pros: "Good, newer wide body aircraft. Good service. No hassles, really. Would fly again. Overall good experience."
Cons: "Newest seating arrangement in 777 300 ER just too crammed. Used to be better. Nothing special about this flight, was expecting a little more space, a little less crowded, a bit better service. But my flight was short hop from BKK to HAN, last leg of flight originating in Doha."

Pros: "Very comfortable seats with lots of space and pillows blankets and other ammenities. It was a 13 hour flight and the staff came by many timea with drinks and snacks"

Pros: "The crew were nice"
Cons: "The screen of my seat and my mom ( sitting next to me) and the lady near the window stopped working after launching and we had to stair in the dark for eleven hours the flight attendant tried but couldn't fix it. The seat itself was broken and I had to put the bottom Cushing back every time I stand up.the cue to the rest room ( one off them has a broken lock so you can't lock it ) was very long and I had to wait for 25 minutes tell I got in ( the first time I waited too long standing in an air plane )"

Pros: "The crew members are amazing."

Cons: "Somebody smoke in the bathroom. My husband went and told the crew. But nothing was sone. They should have announced in the plane and action should have taken."

Pros: "Service"

Pros: "Roomy seats & clean appearance and modern cabin."
Cons: "This is an isolated experience on Qatar but a couple of the crew members had poor attitudes. One flight attendant talked down to passengers during boarding and while serving. Another flight attendant acted as if if she was being inconvenienced when asked for water. The seat did not function properly. It would recline on its own which caused constant adjustment throughout the flight."

Pros: "The staff was friendly throughout and boarding was quick. There were no delays in taking off. They had also helped organize a hotel for the long layover including meal vouchers, visa, and return transfers."
Cons: "During meal times they didn't ask the person ahead of me to put their seat up which made it difficult to eat. They also ran out of quite a few meal options on the various flights I took."

Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and friendly. Qatar airlines also provided tons of food. Lastly the tv/games was a good source of entertainment."

Pros: "When I missed my connection in Dohar, I was put up in an excellent hotel with all expenses paid and great food."
Cons: "When I arrived late in Doha because my flight from Heathrow was delayed, it was difficult to find help when I was trying to rush to make it in time for my connecting flight to Haneda."

Cons: "Being a replacement flight due to delays in original flight from London, the airways chosen our seats beside the emergency exit my son who is 15 and other customer asked to swap seats for safty reasons which I fully support. computer and staff should be smart enough to choose for my son a proper seat."

Pros: "Brand new and beautiful A350 aircraft, great service"

Pros: "The flight was comfortable. The flight attendants were pleasant and attentive."
Cons: "After the flight landed we had to present our boarding passes one by one so they could be inspected again and our names were crossedoing off some list. It really slowed down meeting our ride and getting to customs. I think it also contributed o our flight being delayed since the flight before us had to do the same thing as they disembarked. I would be more concerned if my flight had a close connection if this is a standard practice. This was my first flight with Qatar. If the practice is standard I won't keep flying them."

Pros: "Decency of ground and check in crew"

Pros: "I like the space, equipment that work Space in comparison with other airlines but could be even better once human rights become more important than cashing in ( that is a comment meant for all airlines"
Cons: "The wifi was useless"

Pros: "Kept my Insulated tea mug filled with hot water."
Cons: "Plane left 1 hr late. Crew tried to make me check my carry on because it was a "full" flight and even though my medication was in it and I did not have a lock. Baggage handling bent my pull up handle - it no longer works - suit ace was brand new."

Pros: "Meals were better than expected."
