Airline reviews

Pros: "I had a nice exit row seat so that was nice"
Cons: "The food was not good and there also wasn’t enough of it which is really bizarre for an international flight that’s 14 hours long"

Pros: "they assisted my aunt very well all through out her flight"

Pros: "Crew service responsive and helpful."
Cons: "Poor vegetarian meal (mostly vegan rather than vegetarian and without condiments). Problems using entertainment screen, which would get stuck and also have to go through many steps (confirmation screen, language) to see maps each time."

Pros: "The flight was great once we left the ground, however having flown to the destination (Japan) in Premium Economy, the differences in experience were striking."
Cons: "The boarding crew seemed disorganized, the flight boarded 30 mins late and so we were delayed when it came time to taxi and take off. The flight had numerous crying babies on it, it was warm and stuffy once in flight, the crew brought you meals you didn't have a say in ordering and having to sit for an undetermined amount of time with the used tray in front of you really made the modest space even more so. I love JAL but this flight was not one of the better ones for me. Not through any fault of the staff, they are top notch, but certainly this flight ranks as just "okay"."

Pros: "The crew was always super polite and looked very professional and overall just great. The food was delicious, though the portions are small haha. I had my time behind and I was super late to boarding but the crew came looking for me and they were super nice. Definitely recommend them. Miles better than China Airlines and any of the USA based airlines too. The movie selection was pretty good and the seats were roomy and comfortable."

Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Food can be better."

Pros: "Japan Airline is a notch above the rest. The services was constant and consistent, the food was delicious and abundant, and the seats were comfortable. I was surprised at how often they would go up and down the aisles checking on passengers, picking up trash, and serving small food items. To top it off towards the end of the trip they put toothbrushes in the bathroom so you can leave fresh, awesome."
Cons: "I really dont have a negative things to say, I was really happy with the service. Especially since I hate flying this make the trip so bearable."

Cons: "Food was not the worst but not so great"

Pros: "Everything bad"
Cons: "Bad customer service, I don't speak English good , can't understand them jet blue"

Pros: "The food, the movies and games were really great. There should be more games, though."
Cons: "Having to sit in the window seat, it was a hassle to pass by the 2 passengers sitting next to me to use the bathroom. Also, the announcements made in the plane through the speakers weren't very clear. It was hard to understand what the announcers were saying."

Pros: "Very good premium economy seats and airline service was excellent - highly recommended"

Cons: "a bumpy ride compared to our flight from NY to Japan"

Cons: "Not anyone fault but I wish seating was better fitted in economy for taller people"

Pros: "Japan Airlines is a good airline. They treated my family and I well during our flight home. The food was excellent and healthy. We received hot towels before our meals and the staff were friendly and courteous, which is expected of Japanese service, in general. I loved Japan and coming back to the US on a Japanese airline was the best choice! Thanks!"

Pros: "Everything was perfect - crew, food, service, comfort, entertainment."

Pros: "The most polite and attentative flight attendants and great food options."

Cons: "None"

Pros: "Food and drinks"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Same thing as above"

Pros: "Couldn't ask for anything more than what was offered. Flying is never exactly a pleasant experience, but JAL makes it as painless as possible. Food was excellent and staff were extremely helpful and professional at all times."

Pros: "I asked for a window seat but if was not available. I was told to go to an information desk which were not too close and it turned out that they couldn't help."

Pros: "Overall flight was comfortable and staff was friendly."
Cons: "No details were provided about the food on offer. I didn't know what I was eating and no options were provided"

Pros: "The flight staff was excellent on my flight back to JFK. They were very attentive and kept a smile. There was never a time where I felt uncomfortable. There was open seating on the flight and the staff allowed passengers to relocate for increased comfort. It was a nice flight."
Cons: "The food on my flight was just ok. Going out to Japan the food was pretty good and I really enjoyed it. I was a little disappointed on the way back."

Pros: "Excellent custumer service including cabin attendants' attentiveness and pilot's warnings of turbulence. Great in-flight entertainment. I liked the special touches such as the small snack and water bar available throughout the flight, and the breakfast Kumamon special. Clean bathrooms are very very appreciated."
Cons: "The only bad experience was when we were boarding, and I asked whether I could take a newspaper and the business class flight attendant snidely said that it was only for business class. I understand the comment, but her expression and tone were unnecessary."

Pros: "delicious meals with good drink selections. cabin crews were nice and have smiles on them all time. I saw crew provided excellent services to a young mom traveled with 1 kid and 1 infant with her mom on board throughout the whole flight which were impressive."
Cons: "I believe the air line cut down snacks between meals (my flight were 13 hours) which was little disappointed. Restrooms were not as clean as before although they were way better than other airlines. Crew's English speaking still need improvement. Please keep up the good works! I will flight JAL again soon."

Pros: "that it was actually flown by JAL not china southern"
Cons: "the confusion of having one company selling another's tickets makes finding the gate difficult."

Pros: "Very attentive and polite staff. Was given a free upgrade as well, very much appreciated."

Pros: "Premium Economy had good seating space and leg room."
Cons: "No wifi access"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "flying JAL is always a pleasure. The flight attendants are consummately professional and the entertainment system is top notch"

Pros: "Food was really good!!! It was way"

Pros: "Service was excellent."
Cons: "Seat felt stiff but felt well rested after flight"

Pros: "The cabin crew is very nice , pleasant & the captain did a great job!"
Cons: "Maybe a change in your food menu that you can include some continental items."

Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Not a lot of vegetarian options"

Pros: "Great service. Great seat."

Pros: "Very nice"
Cons: "Good"

Pros: "Flight was all good, entertainment is great."
Cons: "It took an excessively long time for baggage to come out and the local staff was unapologetic. Well over an hour after going through immigration. The service in Narita was significantly better. I'm American and have come to accept poor service, but I can't understand why passengers must pay for a cart to carry their luggage - especially on international flights, before any opportunity to exchange currency. Surely the airlines have some say in this..."

Pros: "I loved the service, the toothbrushes in the bathroom, the cleanliness of the bathroom throughout the flight, the snacks, and the kind flight attendants. This has been my best experience flying to the US from Asia! I would love to take Japan Airlines again as I was incredibly impressed by their services."
Cons: "The lack of quality movies and the way it was organized on the screen. They could organize movies and TV shows by categories instead of one big movie section."

Pros: "Premium economy is marginally better than economy in terms of seat."
Cons: "Probably worst food ever on a flight. Crew, from Hong Kong, struggled with either Jaoanese or English."

Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "Can't say because I was satisfied w/ my flight"

Pros: "This is the best airline I have ever taken. Staff were attentive, boarding was quick and efficient and there were lots of meals, snacks and drinks. In-flight entertainment selection was also great."

Pros: "For a little bit more cost than regular airlines, JAL makes you feel like you are flying a better version of business, while still being in economy."
Cons: "No complaints."

Pros: "Absolutely great service and courteous crew. Was served drinks and water all the time. Would definitely recommend and fly JAL again."

Pros: "(I have ~30 years flying US domestic and International). Flying JAL is always a wonderful experience. Their staff always seem to have a degree of professionalism and pride in their work that you rarely see on US based airlines anymore. That's not to say US airlines are terrible, JAL is just better. They are generally more expensive than other airlines but when you're stuck in a metal tube for 10+ hours each way, it's worth it."
Cons: "None."

Pros: "Staff upgraded me both ways to an emergency exit row with more leg room."
Cons: "Breakfast was just so-so, not enough snacks or drink service throughout. The departure from the plane took over an hour (JFK’s fault, not Korean Air)."

Pros: "Loved the food and snacks!"
Cons: "Wouldn't mind slightly larger meal portions, but then again, perhaps I could use the portion control, haha"

Pros: "Korean Air is the best. Hands down."
Cons: "Movie selection was poor."

Pros: "Clean facilities and polite staff. Made the 14 hour trip much more tolerable."
Cons: "More JFK related than anything. 20 minute delay on Yvette tarmac due to gate related issues but that's not the airline's fault."

Pros: "good"
Cons: "nothing"

Cons: "High chance of getting delay, this is mostly because of the nature of Korean air."

Pros: "The comfortable aircraft and its services"

Pros: "Smooth boarding"
Cons: "Being seated in the back Luggages coming in last when my friends who travelled with us got theirs way way ahead of us"

Cons: "Delayed flight"

Pros: "Excellent movie selection."
Cons: "Food made my wife sick. Probably a bad shrimp. Passenger next to me thought I was a pillow."

Pros: "Again on board everything was wonderful. The A380 was the most comfortable plane I've ever been in. The food was delicious and the staff was pleasant and friendly."
Cons: "Due to weather we had to reroute from JFK to IAD. we waited 3 hours for our bags and then were told to get to NYC we had to pay out of pocket and would be reimbursed later. I was injured and in a wheelchair and this was not only a major inconvenience it was also poorly handled for someone who needed additional help. It was every man for himself. I was very disappointed"

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "very accommodating for handicap"

Pros: "I liked that the captain was very informative. We were on the plane for awhile and captain let passenger know why and when the plane was going to take off. The crew were very friendly and ready to assist."

Cons: "Crew members are fed up with arrogance. I had to beg them to get a cup of water."

Cons: "The seat is small"

Pros: "The plane was clean and the staff was great."

Pros: "The crew was so helpful and accommodating with my meal and all aspects of the flight! They were just so nice and I usually done get that with other airlines that I've flown. They were so accommodating it was my first time flying Korean air and I would definatly fly it again! You have plenty of leg room and it was just a pleasant flight!"
Cons: "I wish they had a few more updated movies and kids movies other than that no complaints"

Pros: "Excellent Service super"

Pros: "First class on Korean long haul does not disappoint!"
Cons: "Nothing not to like"

Pros: "food selection & crew courtesy"

Pros: "Service was great"
Cons: "Cleanliness - not as clean as outgoing flight"

Cons: "I can't flight. What happened?"

Pros: "Much more legroom than I've ever experienced in economy class. Also the sound system for classical music was better than I've experienced before."
Cons: "The thirteen-hour flight was tiresome -- but less so than breaking up the flight into shorter flights and layovers."

Pros: "The service provided was of a high standard. See the comments mentioned above,"
Cons: "The reading light has to be a bit more directed to the person sitting in the aisle seat."

Pros: "Food. Polite crew"
Cons: "Not enough movie options"

Pros: "It was very good and I am exciting to get back with Korean air too!"

Pros: "Great service and decent food, clean new plane!"

Pros: "Timely and professional services,well polite and corteous staff"

Cons: "Meal quality in economy is really poor, much poorer compared to four years ago, when I last flew Korean Air, and poorer than Asiana, which I flew last year. Flight attendant serving our section kept knocking into aisle seat passenger, including knocking over his coffee cup and spilling coffee all over him and the passenger next to him. Flight attendant's reaction was to panic instead of handing over napkins or paper towels - was mopping up with my napkins and tissues by the time she showed up with some paper towels. I was left with the impression that flight attendants were picked more for looks than competence. Checking in at Incheon took a very long time - they should open more counters or give warning to passengers of how long it can take."

Pros: "Just about everything"
Cons: "In priority class the space was narrow when accessing the aisle from the window seat"

Pros: "see above"
Cons: "Would love more Movie and TV options, especially light of the length of the trip"

Pros: "Service was very good"
Cons: "The food was marginal and they have a very poor selection of movies ( Korean and all other movies)"

Cons: "None"

Cons: "I bought my ticket last minute not realizing that my lay over in Korea was 12 hours I arrived in Korea at 5:30 am, stayed at the airport , slept , walked, ate, sleep patiently waited for my 1930 boarding I finally boarded and was told in their broken English that I am going to be inspected I was thoroughly searched, my pursed was inspected, my body was inspected ,the asked me to open both of my hands and they run a white strips into my palm( I'm a nurse ) and the first thing that entered my mind was they were checking me for drug screen I am very bothered with what happened , Korean airlines makes their passenger have a long lay over and at the end will be thoroughly searched because she stayed in the airport too long How is Korean airlines going to support this insult!!! Anyone tell ne"

Pros: "the food was excellent"
Cons: "I was upset with the lack of live television/satellite channels."

Pros: "There was loads of entertainment during flight , food was great and crew was friendly."

Pros: "Food was good but breakfast omelet was barely warm."
Cons: "Need more room on such a long flight. Also, more movies and TV episodes."

Pros: "Lots of space on airbus. Great choices of entertainment though Singapore airlines has much more choices."
Cons: "I'm vegetarian/vegan so that is my only negative thing. They only had meat & seafood. Airlines should be more aware of being sustainable & food is definitely one of them."

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Boarding and long waiting time after arriving at the airport"

Pros: "Attentive service from flight staff 2 meal service each way in economy"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everything was good overall"
Cons: "I would like more movie and tv options"

Pros: "After requesting a special meal, the flight attendants made absolutely sure of my identity before passing the meal to me (which was GREAT!). Having the pillow, blanket and headphones ready in place when boarding was considerate of Korean Air. Of course, no matter what, having to ask people to accommodate the requests to use the lavatory got old really fast (I had a window seat) but it's what had to happen. Overall, for such a long flight, the airline is a pleasant one with which to fly."

Pros: "The take off and landing. Pilots are very good."
Cons: "The restroom lacks basic tissue and paper cups."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The crew was very respectful and nice"
Cons: "More movie selections"

Cons: "The turbulence was terribly frightening."

Pros: "Nice crew!"
Cons: "The food is terrible. The airbus seats are hard and uncomfortable! One and half hour delay!"

Pros: "Seat spacing is actually sane - so much better than US airlines"
Cons: "turbulence"

Pros: "Courteous and attentive service. Generous with extras (e.g. wine, meals). The entertainment options (movies, TV, music) made the 13 hour flight pass quickly. I was even able to catch a few hours' of sleep thanks to the ample leg room and a seat that reclines more than 15 degrees. Finally, the fellow passengers (mostly Korean) were quiet and polite, which made the flight all the more delightful. This is definitely my goto choice for trips to Southeast Asia."

Pros: "The crew took care of us during a strange virus affected flight."

Pros: "The crew is awesome. They’re so polite and helpful."
Cons: "I think more options that don’t involve seafood would be good, but I’ll also consider selecting a specific meal in the future."

Pros: "The attentions to the passangers are much more friendly than the ones offered today by the american and european airlines, which are today getting more and more cold and unfriendly."
Cons: "The second food service."

Cons: "Old Aircraft Interior, could be more comfortable"

Pros: "japanese airlines food is always better than u.s. airlines. service is also very courteous."
Cons: "disliked their entertainment system. no varieties in movies, and interface was a bit annoying as you could not see a visual menu of all movies and had to keep scrolling line by line to get to the next movie."

Pros: "Never take it"

Pros: "Service Quality"
Cons: "Seat does not recline"

Cons: "I was seated at the exit isle, ample of leg room, but the seats were very narrow. I barely fit into the seats. I noticed the seats behind had smaller arm rests so they had more space. The movies on board need upgrade."

Pros: "The flight attendents were very attentive. I started to havecan upset stomach on decent and the attendent checked in on me to see if I needed any help, she got me a botte of water and checked in on me again once we had fully landed. I really appreciated the concern and care they showed."

Pros: "Crew is awesome and nice"
Cons: "The seat was extremely uncomfortable."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing. It was perfect. Comfortable, cute stewards"

Pros: "The service from the check in to the flight attendants were excellent. both flights were on time and the flights were very smooth."
Cons: "the plains were older and their chairs didn't recline too much, which gets a little uncomfortable during very long flights."

Pros: "Great service by the crew! Excellent food and flight was on time,"
Cons: "Film and movie offerings and music entertainment while on board should be improved with more selections."

Pros: "Friendly crew, delicious meals, comfortable seats. Would fly no other airline to Japan."

Pros: "easy check in."
Cons: "can't choose my own seats."

Pros: "Nice smile and service. Food is good as well"
Cons: "Arrived later than schedule"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "First, I did an online check-in and was able to secure a seat for the first leg of the flight, but was able to get any information on my second leg. So when I arrived at the Thai Airways counter to load in my bags I asked the Thai Airways representative about the missing information. His response was that he could not get into the ANA system and that I have to go to the ANA counter to ask for that information. Given that my layover in Narita was only about 45mins landing to going to the gate, I was not comfortable with not knowing if I would be on that flight or not. The Thai Airways representation at the boarding counter did help me a bit and got in touch with a guide in Narita to help me get my luggages and get to gate properly. I wanted to note that we did not arrive in Narita on time due to the high air traffic so the plane had to circle around for 15 mins. When we finally landed I had about 15 mins to get through the custom and ran to my gate. When I received my ticket I was shocked that I got a middle seat on a 13 hours flight! If I have known this earlier I would have paid for a better seat, but since I was not able to check-in online and didn't receive any info about this flight prior to boarding I was not allowed to change on this full flight. In addition, the plane ride was awful. The food was disgusting and the seat was very uncomfortable. The seat did not even recline back! I don't expect much from a short distance flight but for a 13 hour long flight, I at least expect the seat to be slightly better than sitting on a rock against a brick wall. All in all, this was a HORRIFIC EXPERIENCE I went through. The stress and the discomfort on the plane was an experience that no one should ever feel while traveling. It was an awful nightmare on an ANA flight. I would like a refund on this flight with no exceptions. Sincerely, Jessica Saesue"

Cons: "Food was not good, seats not comfy"

Pros: "The plane wasn't that full so I had a lot of space."
Cons: "the seat itself is still uncomfortable to put in the extended position to relax. Plus the headrest doesn't move very well so it's hard to get a comfortable head position when trying to sleep. The crew took forever getting everyone on the plane I have no idea why it took so long considering they're worn so many people on the flight. The food wasn't very good except for the marble loaf."

Pros: "I loved flying Ana. I cannot stress enough how exemplary the service was and the overall comfort/experience was one of the best I've had. I am looking forward to flying with them again next year when I return to Japan."

Pros: "Flight left on time, service is good and also good entertainment options. Food is a bit so-so frankly but not bad."
Cons: "They take a long long time to let economy class deboard on arrival even after the doors are open. Biz get off first naturally but the staff are sometimes chatting to them for a rather long time."

Cons: "Width of the seat for me was bit tight when in a flat bed position."

Pros: "I love this airline! The flight attendants are so polite and cute and the whole ride was a great experience."

Pros: "There were very entertaining channels availabe. Very few in English and non in my native language i.e. Urdu."
Cons: "The food. Though it's Halal but very poor quality you should have to improve it."

Pros: "I like the food, service, and punctuality."
Cons: "Nothing I do not like"

Pros: "Service and food"
Cons: "Seats need more padding -- perhaps an optional pad for some customers. It may be impossible to avoid literal butt hurt on a 14-hour flight, but an additional seat pad probably would have helped. Little Japanese woman next to me had one and I think she was quite comfortable."

Pros: "The big screen Tvs"

Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "Food"

Cons: "They refused to board because the united dis not allocate the flight date and ANA check in counter did not help to coordinate."

Pros: "Good service."
Cons: "Was put on "Standby", even though I was traveling with my teenage daughter, and I arrived more than 2 hours before departure! I ended up getting a seat, but this was unnecessary stressful (there were some seats left in business, so they knew I was going to get a seat eventually. They could have told me I was going to be able to go at check-in)."

Pros: "the food, service, and efficiency"
Cons: "The really long layovers"

Pros: "I love ANA airlines ❤"

Pros: "Everyone is super nice."
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Was able to request a gluten-free meal for the flight"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "the service is good"
Cons: "the seat is too small"

Cons: "kayak should let you know when buying the ticket that the first portion of the flight codeshare with united express doesn't cover a second bag I called ANA they said i could bring two so I did but I was charged 100 dollars for it even though it was an international flight with ANA also united express shattered the outside of one of my checked bags so I paid 100 dollars to get a 50 dollar suitcase BROKEN UNITED won't respond to my inquiries. I am very disappointed."

Cons: "The crew was very polite, the best that I have ever seen . I noticed this polite behavior in all Japanese service people in Japan too. Very gracious, It is in their culture. The only problem for me in such a long trip it was that the chairs couldn't move back for a more relaxed position, but overall it was very good ."

Pros: "The service, the plane and even the food were all top notch."

Pros: "ANA food and service is awesome"

Pros: "Very attentive, professional crew."

Pros: "service and comfort in Premium economy"
Cons: "ANA's food quality went down so much. Its basically as bad as united meals. Very sad."

Cons: "Flight attendants didn't speak English; no amenities provided (toothbrush, eye kit, etc.) like Etihad and Qatar provide in economy. There weren't a lot of meal options. There should be double the movies and music offered given that you can go through all of the offerings in one or two legs of a trip. I had four. BBC news didn't work on any leg of the trip and the Japanese news was in Japanese only, no English."

Pros: "The seat had good width since I am 6"1 , unlike most American airline the comfort level is much better, not cramped."
Cons: "Not much all good"

Pros: "Food is good."
Cons: "The entertainment equipment is a little bit out of date. I know this is a short international journey from Tokyo to Wuhan,and this flight is usually not full-loaded. So I can understand the company uses some old equipment on the plane."

Pros: "Staff was nice and attentive"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. Don't recline. Could use more film choices."

Pros: "Unexpectedly upgraded to business class - fantastic way to start a business trip... Food was amazing, and the seats and legroom are of course paradise compared with economy class - thanks ANA!"

Pros: "My son can not eat peanuts, I am so happy you offer the peanut free meals. And ANA always have good sevice."

Pros: "The crew was courteous and helpful. The food was good. The seat and bed comfortable."
Cons: "There was really nothing to dislike. The video choices could be more imaginative."

Pros: "The padding seems inadequate especially for medium and long hauls. It hurts sitting in the seats after 2 hours into the fight."

Pros: "Very comfortable and nice lighting. Not too bright"
Cons: "The overhead light is too far up and when I turn on the light it's lightning up more than just my seat. Other people beside me are sleeping and it's too bright to turn on the light."

Cons: "Better movie selection. Better organized boarding in Frankfurt"

Cons: "Boarding was delayed for 25 min and was no information for that. Otherwise everything was good"

Pros: "The crew is usually really good."
Cons: "The ground staff at Frankfurt airport was not very good. Seemed slow lazy and difficult at times"

Pros: "Crew was amazing"

Pros: "Very cramped seats"

Pros: "Food, Entertainment."
Cons: "Harder than usually landing"

Pros: "I can say all the crew was amazing"
Cons: "They are doing excelent job."

Pros: "I didn't like the trip much. After the trip we found out that our body was bitten by fleas. Our body is now full of rashes, every part of my body is so itchy. We was seated in 61A and 61C, seems like in the previous flight a dog was sitting there or some kind of animal that left fleas in the sit."
Cons: "Please clean better the seats. This is unacceptable, not a good way to start a trip in Japan. We only hope to get better sitting in our last flight with SQ, from Japan to LA."

Pros: "everything..Singapore airlines is a amazing airline !!! there is a reason why they are no 1 for so many years..."

Pros: "This was the most fabulous crew I have ever flown with on ANY flight in so many years of my travels! It was un-imaginable as to what they did, they left no stone unturned to make sure we were comfortable, fed us with awesome food every now and then. Were looked after like babies! Thank you SQ!"
Cons: "The A380 was probably SQ's oldest one, which that was a newer plane."

Pros: "Crew amazing. Seat super comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing!"

Cons: "Excellent service"

Pros: "Extra leg room, great service and good food."
Cons: "The entertainment system feels dated (no touch screen) manual rewinding of movies, selection of movies"

Pros: "Lie-flat seats in business class"
Cons: "4 hrs delay due to failure of Singapore Airlines to have a working plane on site at the appointed time. Even worse: chaotic deplaning with one crew member telling passengers to deplane and another yelling at them in the bridge for doing so. A mess of lines trying to get a new boarding pass for a rebooked missed connection—at the front of the line the agent said oh, you need to wait in this other line. Agents had no clue where to direct passengers and gave incorrect directions that necessitated more waiting. No updates to new flight time in the business class lounge. Once the flight was in the air, service was terrible. Attendants would ask for orders, then never bring them or bring the wrong thing."

Cons: "Screaming children. Totally clueless, rude flight crew. Next time kids are screaming for three hours straight on a red eye, maybe offer the parents some assistance. Makes the “perks” like hot towels seem ridiculous when staff are completely indifferent."

Pros: "Great service always smiling, flight on time, overall a great way to fly."

Pros: "Cabin crew was top notch - even in coach they could not be more accommodating and customer friendly. US airline flight attendants don’t even come close to this team that truly serviced the cabin for 8 hours continuously without the typical hiding in the back of the plane and chatting. Very encouraging that genuine care in the air is very much alive and well on Singapore Air! I will fly them every chance I get!"
Cons: "That my flight had to end and I know my next US airline flight won’t come close to this kind of experience! Air travel doesn’t have to be a cattle herding process with peanut treats on cross country flights - shame on the US carriers - I strongly suggest they fly Singapore Air to see what true customer service feels like!"

Pros: "Finally, I could go to my final destination as planned by transmitted to Korean Air flights."
Cons: "My first flight of JetBlue from Olandor to New York was delayed that leading to my connecting flights to my destination were missed. Now, my suitcases have been missed, too."

Pros: "It's not the cheapest way to fly but it's a great way to cross the Atlantic. Seats are big enough for 2, really. Lay flat beds make the night crossing east tolerable. You really can get several hours sleep. The cabin crew is outstanding, patient, and extremely responsive to requests. Two meals served were excellent. Entertainment choices were complete. After a number of flights in Economy on other airlines I'm spoiled by Singapore Airlines and also by Business Class. And their fares seemed much less than others for the JFK to FRA route. Had no idea this level of luxury existed on an airplane."
Cons: "My seat assignment was moved without explanation on our return flight, FRA to JFK. That was disappointing. The gate folks were apologetic but no real explanation given."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Staying in a hotel for 24 hours."
Cons: "Not actually making it to Japan."

Cons: "Flight attendants were bot friendly, appearwd to be botheted when askes questions or requests were made."

Pros: "Staff was polite and accommodating"

Pros: "I dropped my scarf and only realized after I was seated. People were still boarding and I told a young man attendant and he found it and brought it to me. And he was such a gentleman too! Wish I knew his name but it was Frankfurt to JFK 835am flight on April 3rd. Thank you again!"

Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Singapore was fine and helpful with a crazy problem JustFly created then didn’t fix."
Cons: "JustFly billed the wrong price, then to fix that,created a new ticket with my name misspelled and failed to cancel the original ticket. We later upgrade seats via Singapore then discovered the duplicate booking and misspelling. To fix that JustFly cancelled the booking with the seat upgrade. Singapore restored our upgrade at the airport but only on one direction so we had to go through it all again."

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: "wide seats. great service. on time."
Cons: "food was not as good as one would expect."

Pros: "That the A380 was only 70%full, resulting in me getting three seats to myself. I was able to stretch out and sleep for most of the flight. Food and service were top notch. Better value than Lufthansa or American, for the overall flight experience. You could fly cheaper, but not better, in economy."
Cons: "Though we landed early at JFK, we had a one hour wait on the tarmac until one of the only two gates capable of receiving an A380 opened up."

Pros: "Friendliness"

Pros: "Ontime, airline stewards were excellent and tv entertainment very good"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Excellent service & comfort"

Pros: "smooth service with refreshments"
Cons: "No working seat audio"

Pros: "Great service"

Pros: "Best serves ever will fly every time"

Pros: "Love the service at Singapore Air. Very attentive and accommodating."
Cons: "Security at Frankfurt airport was horribly slow. Also, audio jack didn't work properly. Not sure how often that's checked."

Pros: "I got in some exercise during the delays and gate changes"
Cons: "Delay after delay, gate changes, lack of care from employees, missed a day of vacation in Germany, missed out on photos and memories"

Pros: "They whole process was just too tiring, especially when passengers were expected to lug around all their packed bags, instead of the airline catering to hold the luggage in the airport holding area"

Cons: "Extremely cramped flight in regular Economy."

Pros: "The crew, the food and the comfort was fantastic. I was in economy and even with a full flight I was still comfortable."
Cons: "It would have been nice if wifi was free considering it was such a long flight"

Pros: "Crew was attentive and nice."
Cons: "Cabin was beat up and worn out."

Pros: "everything great, every time again"

Pros: "The meals were great, the seats very comfortable, the entertainment system very good as well."
Cons: "The Internet was very expensive and very little. I was disappointed, and had to ask 3 times to different attendants to help me set it up. They were not acquainted with the process at all."

Pros: "The flight experience was pretty great overall.."
Cons: "I didn't like that interacting with their websitewas not very iser friendly or reliable. While most domestic airlines allow you to easuly interact with your itinerary I pretty much had to just show up and hope everything worked out. Also no alerts or other functions."

Pros: "The food was great!"
Cons: "The announcements coming from the boarding crew were not clear or hardly under stable."

Pros: "Everything else was good"
Cons: "I purchased wifi and it was too slow to load my movie. Ear buds fell out of ears."

Pros: "Everything, got to love how smooth those A380s are, plus the service and food is impeccable. Also so much entertainment!"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "This was the second time that we were able to fly to Germany with Singapore airline. I will always try to fly with them in the future. I have been on numerous transcontinental trips and I rank them as number one. They make me feel like I am welcome."
Cons: "There was very little leg room for people over five feet tall. Everything else was exceptional."

Pros: "Service is good even in economy class."
Cons: "Chairs on the new A380 although more comfortable than the Boeing 777 are still very uncomfortable for sleeping in the economy class. Plane is so big that it takes a while for first and business class to load and unload. Luggage took forever to unload for the same reason."

Pros: "no"
Cons: "respect"

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Crew is good. Flight got delayed"
Cons: "Food is good."

Cons: "Mu luggage got broken"

Cons: "Did not make this flight. How can I confirm that my ticket is still valid for the return trip?"

Pros: "Need to give people cheap access to wifi"

Cons: "Nothing disposable about the airline but booling process gave me a headace"

Pros: "same"
Cons: "same"

Pros: "Being able to ear what you want and when you want it made my flight so much more enjoyable. You can ask for anything on the menu and the flight attendants are so attentive."
Cons: "Boarding in Qatar was a bit disorganised."

Pros: "Everything was good!"
Cons: "More movies, no wifi, better food"

Pros: "Stewardess (Thai origin) - can't recall her name... Simi something or another... was very helpful... great experience!"

Pros: "Good, comfortable and smooth flight. Food was better than expected."
Cons: "Some of the flight attendants seem to be bias towards passengers. Had some loud passengers on one of our flights and noone told them to be quiet. Was also asked to move my seat up so that the person behind me could eat, yet the person in front of me was not asked the same thing"

Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "Not that there is much to be done, but the passengers behind me had a small child and continued to ask me to move my seat and asked the flight attendant to ask me to move my seat up as well so that she and her grandson could have more room. However the gentleman in front of me had his seat back, so I was fairly uncomfortable for most of the 13 hour flight."

Pros: "Great airline...nice staff, very attentive and polite."

Pros: "SPECIALLY THE CREW SERVICE EXCELLENT"

Pros: "Service & cleanliness."
Cons: "Nothing I remember."

Pros: "Considering how long it was, not much could have been better. It wasn't too crowded, so the seat next to me was free, which made getting some sleep easier."

Pros: "Clean plane, esp. the bathrooms. Sufficient bathroom amenities. Attendants always checking bathrooms for cleanliness. Very friendly attendants yet not overpowering. This flight, the films are a bit better but still not the most recently films are on offer. Nobu's seafood soup noodles was the best!"
Cons: "Not interested in the menu's main courses. Fruits were not sweet at all. Must improve on your cappuccino. Nobu's seafood soup noodle did not come with chopsticks."

Pros: "Flight attendants are helpful from Doha to New York."
Cons: "Take the bus from the plane to the terminal in Doha. It was a hassle .from Doha to Dhaka was 3hours delayed without a notice."

Pros: "Amazing airline with excellent crew and ground staff ever willing to help!"

Pros: "Qatar is not glitzy. Better than that, it was straightforward and relaxed and comfortable. Crew was pleasant and helpful."

Pros: "Very spacious, good food & service"

Pros: "Flight was on time. Crew was friendly and attentive to passengers (I give them 4.5 stars). The seats are comfortable. The plane was clean."
Cons: "My 18 year old daughter (turned 18 on December 20, 2016) was singled out, searched extensively bodily and her bag, for no reason what-so-ever. It was a traumatizing experience for her... needless to say, nothing was found and no explanation was given. The seats recline too far back so that the person behind cannot enjoy what they are watching. The crew has to keep asking the passengers in front to pull their chairs up slightly."

Pros: "Service was good."
Cons: "Need to provide more variety for vegetarian food. Cannot serve the same food for every meal on a long haul flight. Provide more entertainment options, more episodes of sitcoms, more movie options, more language options."

Cons: "Check in to the boarding lounge was a bit chaotic and there were a lot of angry customers yelling at airline staff. The process needs to be improved."

Pros: "The crew, they were very pleasant and good about taking care of our needs."
Cons: "The middle console video went out on my husband at the end of the flight, while he was watching a movie. This also happened on the earlier flight from Singapore to Doha."

Pros: "everything!"

Cons: "is it true that Qatar treats the passengers coming to US differently than the passengers going out of US. I noticed that the crew was giving menu cards for dinner when coming back to US. Food quality is very ad, quantity is small also. same story with snacks. they don't offer enough food overall. The crew should be trained better for int'l passengers."

Pros: "The Steward on this flight was excellent. Very attentive and pleasant. He asked at the end of my flight how was everything. Food was good ."
Cons: "This flight was better than the flight going out to Doha , then to Abu Dhabi. You guys were late landing,and as a result I almost missed my connecting flight, was rushed thru the airport like a lunatic by one of your Reps. Then was told my luggage may not be in Abu Dhabi when I arrive, which it was not. My paid for seat wasn't available and had to sit in the back. Had to fill out a lost luggage report in Abu Dhabi. Was promised my luggage by 4:30 pm . Didn't receive it until 2:30 am next day. Missed my whole first day of vacation as I had no clothes , toiletries, etc . Very angry, and feel I should get a substantial discount on my next flight in March to Dubai. Totally unacceptable !!!!!!!"

Pros: "I was incredibly impressed with the on board crew. They were kind, efficient, courteous, thoughtful, and charismatic. They made the LONG flight enjoyable and extra comfortable. :)"

Cons: "They supposed to provide Wheel chair for my elderly mother in Law who had a foot fracture, was very hard /painful to walk. I confirmed the wheelchair option well advance before her travel date in Qatar Airways Web site. I got the confirmation also in the Qatar Airways Web site. I usually fly with my family as I have a big family with couple of children and elderly. I will never fly Qatar again, this was the 1st and the last fly with Qatar airways."

Pros: "Absolutely nothing!!!!!"
Cons: "Again, our flight was cancelled without notification!!!!!"

Cons: "Terrible. Awful. Could not possibly recommend this airline to anyone."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The first flight of my journey was delayed which made me late for my next two connecting flights. I arrived on vacation a day late. Paid for a hotel and activities that I never used. My bag arrived 5 days late. I had to buy clothes on a daily basis which ate up more time and fun money. The airline gave me nothing except empty promises and dismissive apologies."

Cons: "Flight attendants raising shades so that light was in your face. Blocking aisles near bathrooms"

Cons: "No entertainment service from Doha to New York"

Pros: "Boarding on time. Crew was very nice except food option."
Cons: "My wife didn't get veg food she is looking for. We asked crew and they said they don't have."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "price and comfort"

Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "The entertainment choices were great."
Cons: "We sat in front of a row of children who kicked the back of my seat for 13 hrs straight. We spoke to a flight attendant about it early on in the flight, spoke to the kids and spoke to the parents. Then spoke to the kids and parents mid flight. And then spoke to them all, including a flight attendant towards the end of the flight. The issue was never resolved. We asked to change our seats but could not. We asked for the parents to trade seats with the kids and they would not. It was the worst, most uncomfortable flight I have ever taken. And I fly regularly for work and for pleasure. It was an absolutely horrible experience. I was actually in tears on the flight because I was so tired, uncomfortable and frustrated."

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Time of flight"

Cons: "I am hard of hearing. It would be appreciated it you would offer more movies with English subtitles."

Pros: "Great Crew, seat space was great too"
Cons: "The cabin sound proofing can be improved. Especially the clicity clack from passengers eating. The pre boarding space was very limited."

Cons: "They changed my seats twice and it was near the bathrooms and I hated it. They refuse to give me a better place when I requested. I didn't choose the seats they put me in and the crews couldn't handle the other passengers attitued and actions. I asked for a below but they didn't bring it to me."

Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "Could have preferred more snacks or fruits which we could pick up while flying."

Cons: "I had chicken three time on the flight. To spicy for my tastes. Even scrambled eggs had a hot sauce on them."

Pros: "Same as my above review."
Cons: "Same as my above review."

Pros: "See above"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Fligjt om time. Smooth landimg Friendly environment."
Cons: "Could have provided asian dish from.doha to.newyork.flight"

Pros: "Nice"
Cons: "No facility for baby"
