Pros: "The crew was great although I needed to ask them for my meal cause they passed by me. They thought I had my meal already which I didn’t. I don’t think they did it on purpose so it was just misunderstanding. My flight was on SQ 38 from Singapore to LAX on October 30 2019 Other than that. All is amazing. I will still highly recommend Singapore Airlines to other people."
Cons: "I think I have nothing in mind about improvements because I can see they have been training very well. I would like to say keep up the good work"

Pros: "Red wine was good"
Cons: "The seats in economy are now Way TOO SMALL! You better start calling Economy - "Stearage"! Food was not as good as on past flights with SA. Movie selection not as good as past SA flights. Earphones supplied are horrible!!!"
Pros: "My partner had a bad leg and the staff were very attentive and helpful in making her as comfortable as possible with extra pillows and getting ice for her ice pack."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable and I couldn't sleep without getting a really stiff neck. The vegetarian oriental meal was bee hoon with vegetables but the amount of vegetables were a lot more than the bee hoon thus making the meal less than filling and satisfying."
Pros: "Best coach experience I have had. Good airplane food. Gracious service. Tail wind made us early which was a good thing because LAX is such a mess and it would have been difficult to make our connection with the long bus ride and 2.5 mile walk to the Alaska terminal."
Cons: "Extremely cramped flight in regular Economy."
Pros: "The crew Were so attentive. And Also not untrusive. If i was asleep they left me and offered me food and drink when i woke. Excellent airline."
Pros: "As usual, plane is in good shape and crew are well trained. Nothing wrong with all the basics, but Singapore Air has definitely lost its lustre."
Cons: "For heaven's sake, please don't announce a boarding procedure and then not follow it. If you want to have a free-for-all rugby scrum to get on the plane, so be it. But don't announce boarding by rows/groups and then not make even a lame attempt to adhere to it."
Pros: "Great staff. Aircrafts has more leg room. The food and entertainment was good as well."
Pros: "I liked how often the staff walked down the ailes to help. They are very attentive. The entertainment is endless. Seats were standard in economy class, I recommended upgrading for that long of a flight."
Cons: "To my flight specifically, it got adjusted without telling me so I ended up missing my final transfer. I was not given a notification for a flight change. Someone met me at the end of my second flight to tell me I missed my connecting flight. With the adjusted flight Singapore gave me, there was no chance I would have made it. They did purchase a ticket for me on another airline to get to San Francisco in the end."
Pros: "Thank you flight itself was v good but not check in"
Cons: "Check in was terrible Long slow moving lines to just drop a bag! Can definitely improve as it is not like this anywhere any longer"
Cons: "Same price as Singapore airlines but it's a budget flight - silk air"
Pros: "The entertainment selection was decent."
Cons: "The crew left a lot to be desired. Very disappointed as when I flew last year, the crew was superb. I'm not a demanding flyer. I really hesitate to even call a flight attendant whenever I fly, so I'm not high maintenance. Incident 1: The flight from DPS to Singapore the flight attendant scoffed when I asked for socks saying that economy passenger don't receive socks on this flight. I didn't appreciate the suggestion that my class wasn't worthy of meeting my request. Her response felt condescending. Her continued interaction with me consistently felt short and mildly irritated with me. I didn't understand why. Honestly, I won't fly Singapore again because of this. Flights are not cheap for me. I spend the extra few hundred dollars because of great reviews and a superior experience last year. I will not be spoken to in a condescending way. On the second leg of my travel from Singapore to LAX the flight attendant once again said that I will not be given socks? Why, thought? I'm traveling for over 30 hours. Have things changed? Second, I asked for a second ice-cream. She handed me the ice-cream then took it out my hand and told me she would have to come back to me. The galley that was suppose to have food didn't seem to have anything. Was I missing something. Be fail on many level."

Everything went smoothly, from the check-in where the check-in and baggage staff informed me that one of my check-in bags was a little over weight and gave me a chance to repack the bag so I did not need to pay. Security lines for the red-eye flight time were not long, and once I arrived at the gate, EVA's boarding crew moved passengers along quickly. Flight attendants were very professional and courteous. Landing and baggage claim went well. No complaints at all! I would recommend this flight to anyone wanting direct service from Chicago to Taipei."
Pros: "After having flown numerous airlines to Asian countries over the years, we are extremely happy to have found EVA Airlines. After flying EVA the last 5 round trips we are happy to say they are the #1 airline of choice. Actually, we will fly no other than EVA as they have the cleanest planes and the best of service from the check-in counter, thru the security and flight staff, all are the best and most devoted to assist you in any way needed along your trip.

Pros: "Excellent food and serving"

Pros: "Service has become repulsive and terrible that a frequent traveling in Emirates like me for past 15 years is considering to find an alternative."
Cons: "Service, the interior and almost everything is poorly managed. The inflight after ringing the call bell for 10 minutes, was disgruntled to attend to us, literally screamed at us saying she was busy in the back and we need to be patient. She took an additional 10 minutes to bring us some water. Her attitude was inexcusable and offensive. I have been a loyal flyer making at least 2 travels in a year with Emirates and I'm ready to switch now."
Cons: "The temperature was set too high"
Pros: "Tons of entertainment options and $1 wifi. Don't expect fast speed but works for just fine for email and slow browsing."

Pros: "Wonderful staff, service, food, drinks, entertainment Dubai terminal is amazing & stopover was worth it"
Cons: "10-across seating in a 3-4-3 layout on a 777 is unbearable for a 13.5 hr longhaul flight like Chicago to Dubai Passengers' arms ended up on top of one another in this totally full flight--hence "Armsie" class if you like to play armsie with strangers Fly only if you are very thin with narrow shoulders + hips"
Cons: "1. Flight entertainment was not working from Singapore to Brisbane only me and my partner seat was not working, I know cabin crew not able to fix it, no apology given to us, said "we can not do anything at the moment", offered me to choose between bottle of wine from business class or 10% off voucher for duty free, poor compensation 2. Flight entertainment was not working AGAIN from brisbane to melbourne, 3. 2pax 20kg allowance for baggage with us, however we did have only 1 bag which 25kg, from brisbane to melbourne in airport, they did accept our baggage from brisbane to melbourne without charging, and did not mention suppose to pay for extra. from Melbourne, they did not allow us to drop our baggage for complimentary, had to explain aboout our allowance and happen from brisbane they did not listen what we try to explain. ( 28th Jan 2016, 10am ish, there were 1 eldest gentleman, and 30ish aged lady) =never happen before with other airline like cathay, singapore,korean,emirates,etihad...etc So, if we took Emirate I believe it won't happened, because it was "QANTAS" very poor service, poor equipment in flight as well. what a shame Qantas is only one of full service airline in Australia."

Pros: "I did not like your service even a bit."
Pros: "A great flight with friendly staff, comfy seats, good food, and great inflight entertainment."
Cons: "The international transfer process at Manila airport was the worst I’ve ever seen. They had about 20 people standing at a desk for about 90 minutes with no explanation as to what was going on. In that time, nobody was released to go to their gate, but they wouldn’t explain what was happening. There were about 10 airport staff standing there, mostly doing nothing. The process was inefficient, to say the least. There was no place to sit, no toilets, no order to any of it. In most international airports, after you deplane, you just walk to your next gate. There seemed to be no logical reason for that awful experience. It would have been much faster to go through customs and then go through security, walking directly to the gate."
Pros: "Premium Economy did not meet our expectation compared to even US airlines."
Cons: "Crew Service was not very good."
Pros: "Good leg room and nice recline for economy. Good and service very nice."
Cons: "Everything was well done and organized."

Pros: "The crew was wonderful. Very polite and professional. The movie selection was the best I had ever had.......great job there!"

Pros: "Food was mediocre and passable."
Cons: "Rude behavior of Cathay Pacific Staff"
Pros: "pilot’s operation of the plane is very good"
Cons: "there’s not enough snacks/food"
Pros: "I had never flown with them before. One of my friends is coming to visit me in the Philippines next month. I told him make sure he books it on Cathay I was super happy with the whole experience."
Pros: "Smooth easy ride and great business class lounges."
Cons: "They need to cater for more Europeans in their food offerings. They also need to carry enough to ensure they do not run out. Bathroom locks require maintenance."
Cons: "Delayed flights and food service suck"
Pros: "Smooth flight and service."
Cons: "Only one water closet was available and there were no amenities given such as socks or toothbrush as other international flights provide."
Pros: "Flight was very smooth and pleasant. The entertainment was great with lots of choices. Premium economy seats on A350 was amazing. Very similar to Qants reganal business class on their 737. But how ever the seats on their A330 was average. But otherwise all was good. I would recommend Cathay."
Cons: "The food was very small portion and average in taste. The crew took a wile to take the trays and clear after all ate."
Pros: "The service and flight were great"
Cons: "The food was bland and it had no flavor. I got food poisoning from what they called a low lactose meal. I am a Chef myself and I feel like part of the overall experience is being fed but I didn’t have a great experience with that. I dread the flight home."
Pros: "The crew and entire ground staff very courteous. Good entertainment choices. Crew tried their best to make a good experience."
Cons: "Decent 777 planes, but felt dated and very cramped. Food was disgusting and limited options."
Pros: "My checked luggage bag was damaged. I noticed the damage only after I I reached home. However, when I reported Cathay Pacific baggage staff were very helpful and professional. I know several airlines who hide behind bureaucratic procedures to stonewall customers. CP is not one of them. Excellent service, before, after and during the flight."
Pros: "Great food, great movie selection. Fast service. Unexpected full meal"
Cons: "I’m still not there. They had me go to the airport 5 hours early to get a different flight cuz theirs was delayed then after not being able to make those flights carrying my 5 bags to 3 different terminals they said just go on their delayed flight and cuz they had over 80 people going on to Manila that they would hold the last flight there but when we landed we were informed going to a hotel and no compensation for it. I am extremely pissed off"

Cons: "The cabin was very warm and uncomfortable. Water was served after 1hr of the flight"
Cons: "1-hour delay due to inclement weather"

Pros: "The crew and the flight was good. The comfort of the seats were not, especially for a 14.5 hr flight"
Cons: "Just a little more space between the seats! You have to lean to the side, on the passenger seating next to you to try to pick something up or gather your belongings."
Cons: "Qantas is a great airline and I enjoy flying with them. I happened to have two seat mates on either side of me who took up more than their share of the seat, making my flight rather uncomfortable."
Pros: "The legroom my seat had - It was near the exit and didn't have a seat in front of it. The flight was only half full which meant room for everyone to spread out."

Pros: "canin pressure and comfort level was excellent"
Cons: "screens from other seats are bright"
Pros: "Punctual flight, friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "The iPads for the entertainment system were cumbersome. Initially they didn't work for the whole cabin and the FAs had to reboot the system. They were also finnicky to operate. Also, needing to stow them for take-off and landing was a bit cumbersome. It would be much better to use the traditional fixed screens."
Pros: "Qantas kept us informed about a delay and were so reliable on making sure everyone was comfortable with the day."
Cons: "Our entertainment console wasn’t working properly. We didn’t have access to our in flight maps or the majority of entertainment options. This hasn’t happened before but it di but it did mean that it was a long flight made longer."

Pros: "All the services"
Pros: "Thank you Qantas I enjoyed the flight, the service was excellent. Cabin crews were friendly. Overall excellent."
Cons: "There is nothing that I dislike."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled due to technical difficulties. But the airline did not plan ahead and was understaffed to take care of the individuals on the airline to speed up the process of waiting in lines. They knew we were coming and still only had 2 individuals on staff to take care of hundreds of people so the lines were longer than needed to be. Poor planning and accommodating of individuals during this time has made me not want to fly with this airline again."

Cons: "Great service , very caring and clean . Looked after me as I had to use a wheelchair . Thank you :)"
Pros: "I liked the fact that there was a water refilling station so I could get water when I needed/wanted it. The people were friendly and there were lots of times when the lights remained off so that people could sleep. There weren't a lot of interruptions during the flight so people could rest or do what they wanted! I also like that Quantas is associated with American so I got a ton of miles!"
Cons: "My seat wouldn't stay upright so any movement made it go back, which was fine for resting but when eating or sitting up, I kept falling back. Luckily the person behind me was understanding."
Pros: "A cut above all others"
Pros: "Great service and comfort"
Cons: "This was actually promoted on the site as an emirates ticket and only after id purchased it did i figure out that it was actually for Emirates Airways sister airline Qantas Airways!

Pros: "It was a safe flight."

Pros: "Cleanliness, really courteous staff, comfortable seats, entertainment from an app :-)"
Pros: "Direct flight to Brisbane. Cheerful crew doing their best with what they had to deal with."

Pros: "The staff & getting my questions answered. Also, food! Thanks to Qantas!"
Pros: "QF 93 Australia to US, was awesome, was allowed spare room, better, more courtious, better fresher food, better service from crew, and more comfortable, the space between the seats was bigger."
Cons: "The return flight QF 94 - the crew were so slow with everything, especially handing out meals. Instead of starting of handing out meals in other section (which was served last for initial meal). So being in the second the last row, I was served meal last both times. Also very slow in taking away empty trays. Had to beg for an aisle seat, which is total BS as it seems women are automatically assigned to middle seats, even though I am taller than most men. I am a Qantas frequent flyer which has stated my preference for an aisle, but only given to me if I ask, and sometimes not even that. Also on this flight, the bathrooms were a mess. Food was not very good. And in terms of boarding we had to wait to a passenger - why can one person hold up an entire flight? Felt that my experience was not worth the exorbitant price. This is not part of Qantas responsibility, as flight came in on time at Tullamarine airport in Melbourne, but it took 1 hour and 45 minutes to get out of the airport!!!!"
Pros: "This 737 was refitted and looked great also had the new Wi Fi in flight entertainment .. still brand new so will improve but enjoyed it ... make sure you download the QF entertainment App ....."
