Cons: "If you need more space economy is a tight fit. It would be better to upgrade."

Pros: "Great crew But... Many wild children, loud babies. I was in seat with extra leg room so I had no space for my purse & carry on and had to store in overhead bin. After take off, I retrieved my purse & carry on to get my glasses and purse. The flight attendant gave my bin space away to someone..."
Cons: "See above... Who didn't upgrade their seat. My items had to go into bin 3 rows back. Very inconvenient & very difficult to retrieve after landing. I will never pay the additional fee for extra leg room again."

Cons: "Reservation online"

Cons: "Flight was canceled. They moved passengers to the Lufthansa but didn’t tell us even though we checked with the counter every 20 min. Apparently a text went out that we didn’t get"

Cons: "Very tight space"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Basics are covered. TV screen is big but otherwise nothing special."

At check in they couldn't even get my child seated beside me although a change was made last minute at the gate. Every other airline I've flown recently was better. Sri Lankan and Emirates FAR better service."

Cons: "My only criticism is that the flight attendants didn’t pass through the cabin with water during the 9 hour flight."

Pros: "The people were excellent."
Cons: "I had planned to check an extra piece of luggage, gifts and purchases for church needs. They wanted to charge me $3,655(!!!) for that. Absurd. I had to leave the suitcase behind. I will probably fly on a different airline whenever I go to Russia now."

Cons: "The cabin was quite warm"

Pros: "Non stop to HK"

Cons: "Food served was not so good. Toilets are very small compared to other flights..speacially SFA - Singapore flight."

Pros: "Personal TV"

Pros: "The best long leg flight I've been on. I managed to get a whole row to myself and that made the 12hr flight so much better. The crew was very professional, kind, attentive, and it was grand."

Pros: "Customer service and food couldn't be better."

Pros: "Food & condition"
Cons: "Crew were unfriendly and rude"

Cons: "old plane, boarding ramp smelled musty, food not nice, entertainment system was old not touch screen, male crew not patient with passengers, drinks stingy(split a can of soda with other passengers, and gave you a 1/4 cup). When asked for more OJ with breakfast was told they would come back later(mouth was very dry due to the air). Not impressed as we paid good money for the ticket with the poor service"

Cons: "Food not so good"

Pros: "The service is top notch. The food served is not matched by any other airlines I have traveled with. The flight attendants are always very very professional. I try to make sure to get Singapore Airlines when I travel to Asia."

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: "Flight crew we're attentive and anticipated issues. The flight was smooth and the lavatories were clean and stocked. Love the hot towels at the beginning and end of the flight."
Cons: "Not much to be honest. I suppose if I could say anything it would the seats in economy are a bit cramped, but that's to be expected."

Pros: "I have always enjoyed flying on Singapore Airlines. There were no delays on my connecting flight coming out of Tokyo to Los Angeles. The huge plane was like flying in a small "transportable town.""
Cons: "I had a long connection wait in Tokyo, but that was not too bad since I got a great price on the round trip ticket - less than $700!"

Pros: "For medium range flights SQ uses A330s. Business class is really OK, not great. Each passenger can freely choose any configuration of the seat without inconveniencing others. Food is great, both in presentation and taste, and serve with refined courtesy... I will gladly fly on this aircraft again on my way back."
Cons: "The entertainment system has literally hundreds of choices -- many, many movies for all tastes under the sky. But there is one drawback. Each movie starts, not when you are ready, but when the system is ready ; you cannot pause, resume it, no fast-forward..."

Pros: "Service and Operation"
Cons: "The plane ... its old, in need of a new interior as things are falling off and dirty ... Flew business class and although the service makes up for the old aircraft, i think SQ can do so much better !!!"

Pros: "Very nice and accommodating crew!"

Cons: "Food is served in heated plastic containers. I would request Qatar airways not heat the food in the plastic container."

Pros: "Boarding was smooth."
Cons: "The crew were not attentive. I needed milk for my child but they never came back. Their food was HORRIBLE and only two choices and both spicy and tasted disgusting. Honestly the worst flight for me with Qatar airways"

Pros: "Overall experience was good!"
Cons: "Keep the good work up."

Pros: "Staff are very polite and helpful (ground staff and in the air)."
Cons: "The food was hit and miss. Some of it was good and some of it used ketchup as a sauce. The economy seats have been stripped down to budget airline level padding and the rows seem have been been jammed in a little closer."

Pros: "Yes overall probably the best flight to Chennai from DC"

Pros: "Crew was very friendly"

Pros: "Justfly stoled my money as i booked for seat and paid 30$ And the seat didnt booked I want my money to be returned"

Cons: "I don't understand how this company has a high rating in service. We missed our connection because the plane was delayed and they treated us poorly. How can you have a complimentary lounge for people missing their flight but not allow people in. I guess because we were only economy. When asked could we pay for an upgrade to business class, the attendant responded with "oh, its expensive" I didn't ask how much, I asked if we could. I never felt so insulted. The food was terrible. By the time they got to us, our food was cold and they ran out of the menu item we wanted. I have no intention of flying Qatar again. I will stick with Emirates"

Pros: "The customer service and food were excellent."
Cons: "Next time I will fly business class for more space and comfort."

Cons: "Improve quality of service and cleanliness."

Pros: "Was the crew amazing and nice"

Cons: "The flight got delayed which caused me to miss my connection flight. I was at the gate of my connection flight 5 minutes before the departure, however, they did not let me in. They transferred my flight and now I have to wait 24 hours for the next flight."

Pros: "qatar airways"
Cons: "serving alcohol to passengers more than once is disturbing the passengers on the side"

Pros: "Excellent seats..."

Pros: "On screen entertainment"
Cons: "Food options- they start serving from front when they reach behind of plane food options exhausted pls ask ground catering to provide more non veg food"

Pros: "Attentive service - woke me up before landing (as instructed) and served a meal."
Cons: "Boarding on Doha was chaotic"

Pros: "Service is courteous, both on the ground and air. Food & entertainment was top-notch as well. Enjoyed my flight, again on Qatar!"

Pros: "The flight from Doha to Beirut was not fully booked, we could move easily."
Cons: "I have requested seafood for my meals. Unfortunately I was told that no such request was mentioned on the list as special meal. Overall the food was okay, we had 2 small pieces of beef in one meal, the two salads has no taste and the sandwich was too salty. A passenger who sat next to my husband snored all the time and leaned a bit over my husband as he was heavy."

Pros: "Awesome experience provided by inflight crew, who attended to all your needs for this long for flight. Made us feel really at home!"

Pros: "Fantastic flight...Qatar’s QSuites are fantastic, very comfortable, Amazon my service from the crew, fantastic entertainment options, and with the privacy of the suite ...very close to first class...in fact it is better than the first products (from a seat perspective) of many other airlines such as United, Delta, Virgin, BA, etc."
Cons: "I wish there were more vegetarian options on the menu"

Pros: "The entertainment was good without any hiccups"
Cons: "The crew was in a hurry burry which didn’t give a very good experience. I would suggest the crew to be little more tolerant and make their customers feel good.foo"

Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."

Pros: "Crew and food"
Cons: "It was a pretty old flight and had no tv in front! Huge disappointment. Probably they thought ppl flying from Doha to Colombo were ok with a low quality flight with no entertainment."

Cons: "Staff looks down at Brown skin"

Pros: "Great service and excellent flying!"
Cons: "Food was a bit dry"

Pros: "Great service and great meal options!"

Pros: "Onboard crew pleasant and service efficient as always. Seats more comfortable than other airlines but aisles so narrow EVERYONE bumped me going by for 15 hours."
Cons: "Ground crews remain the downfall of this airline. Long line in Doha to re-clear security on international connection FROM USA! Fastidiously weighing and forcing mutiple repacks of carry-on bags even though well under total limit of checked & carry. (Doha agent told me dfferent rules appied for carrry on 2nd plane even though I asked specifically frm original agent who checked me thru to final dest--insisted I check main carry on even though there turned out to be plenty of overhead room on board). Poor coordination of checkin lines, security lanes, and flow of people -- all fixable with a little forethought, engineering, and better utilization of circulation space -- and much clearer communication!"

Pros: "Food, seat, overall comfort and timeliness."
Cons: "The entertainment system was not working - on a 12+ hour flight..."

Pros: "All Qatar employees were friendly and helpful. A great flight!"

Pros: "Good food, good service and clean planes."

Cons: "They flight was moved up about 1 hr earlier. But no email/SMS/call etc. I totally could have missed the flight as a result! Why would they change it and not let passengers know?"

Pros: "The crew were all lovely + meals were excellent."

Pros: "The crew was fantastic!! They saved this rating."
Cons: "Old plane. No power outlet, no wifi, entertainment system was glitchy... if it was not for the crew, this would have been the poorest u could get. Doha security and transfer were unruly, long, and a mess. Terrible experience there. Nearly missed connection. Dreading going through there on return flight"

Cons: "Luggage was lost"

Pros: "The leg space is what got this flight a 3 star."

Cons: "Boarding would have been improved by utilizing both cabin doors (front & rear). The entertainment system did not work during my 13 hr flight."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and everything else was very good and comfortable on the flight."
Cons: "The boarding process was odd. We got to the gate too early (by maybe 10 mins before boarding time) so we were told to sit outside of the designated seating area and that they would make an announcement when we should go back up there. There was never an announcement, but we felt it was getting late so we went to check at the desk and they then said we were late and they were waiting on us. They were very nice about everything, but just thought that was really strange."

Pros: "Boarding was easy and. Convenient."
Cons: "Seats are pretty cramped, food quality was ok didn't have a lot of variety in inflight movies."

Pros: "A380 - was amazing. Roomy and quite"

Cons: "The arm rest does not go up all the way."

Pros: "The food quality was really good! :)"

Pros: "I am so glad to choose you guys thank you for everything"

Pros: "The food was amazing. The entertainment selection was borderline ridiculous—nearly too many choices!"
Cons: "The plane was too hot during boarding and again right before landing. It was really hot in Dubai so I understand why it was hot initially, but unsure why it became warm before landing."

Pros: "."
Cons: "."

Pros: "nice people, good food"
Cons: "the process in Dubai for boarding is strange, first they make you go into a smaller room where there aren't always enough chairs, then you have to wait there until your section is called. Why not just do it all at the same time?"

Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "The food and the crew way of speaking to people"

Cons: "Be on time. Flight delay was ~3hrs. Flight operated by Fly Dubai and eve though my ticket was with Emirates got charged for coffee and water!!!"

Pros: "The airplane The food"
Cons: "The time"

Pros: "Everything Was Just Perfect"

Pros: "The flight"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I felt very pampered!"

Pros: "Hospitality , service and food."

Pros: "Love the great service, food, cleanliness, movies and extra leg room."
Cons: "Don't like when you have a problem with a refund. You have to fill out a form, web site doesn't work, staff also can't get it to work, you finally get a call back and they send another form to fill out. Staff write the complaint and haven't heard from anyone. I had to start over. Bad at rectifying problems and caring about customers after a trip. I booked 17 tickets for this trip for my clients. I have used you in the past for my clients ..one group 50 tickets. Carol James Travel Agrnt"

Pros: "I must admit....this is one of the best experiences I have had flying and I fly this route a lot. I was traveling with an Elder who required a wheelchair and every step of the way it was smooth and the crew was attentive."

Pros: "The cabin crew are helpful. the in-flight entertainment is superb."
Cons: "The selection of food, the seat is uncomfortable"

Pros: "Service and food"
Cons: "My husband had his backpack and a carry on when we checked in at JFK. He was not allowed. From Dubai to Manila, we saw a lot of passengers who had two or more carry on’s. The floors at Dubai airport are dirty."

Pros: "Expenting better from the Airline and Airport. Airpor has only 2 lounges at other terminals for passengers flying either Delta or United, Not for Emirstes and no Priority Pass. The service was not as expected, took me more than 25 min to get a flight attendant to reach my seat to request a glass of water... when I went to the back of the plane to get water I was told to get back to my sest since seatbelt sign was on (it happend to be turned on for 12 hrs over a 14hr flight... Other than that service is better, than modt of US airlines. I flight frequently and I have boarded Emirates before, economy and business, I feel that they do not deserve best airline qualification for economy, fir example KLM is much better."
Cons: "Attention of Flight Attendants Wait before boarding No major airline alliance or frequent flyer program For pay WIFI a complicated selection in the menu and no runs for extra water or drinks Old headphones not compatible eith other comercialized and used by the rest of the world."

Cons: "Did not have any non-veg food. The only vegetarian food was tasteless and not relatable for a flight to Kochi. TV and internet were struggling o keep up with user demand, crew had standard answer - try later."

Pros: "Very Kind"
Cons: "My seat assignment"

Pros: "Hard working, friendly, and effective team. Your customer care is matchless!"
Cons: "I only have one objection. The crew lost control of restroom cleanliness toward the end of the flight. I know this is a challenge on a long flight, but your crews normally do better."

Pros: "No wonder Emirates is one of the best airlines in the world!"

Cons: "Excess baggage kilo rate is much more expensive than most airlines"

Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "- Seats in bad shape - Dirty bathrooms. Ran out of soap and other supplies and did not refill - Horrible food - Cabin crew was not friendly"

Pros: "First time on an Airbus and it was a much more comfortable plane. Seats were roomy with more leg room, entertainment was better."
Cons: "Pizzas were pretty bad. Biggest problem was the arrival airport. Dulles is a poor airport. The people movers at arrival for more than 400 passengers are really inconvenient. How 'bout using BWI instead?"

Cons: "There is very little space between seats from Dubai to Cochin flight. Didn't have space to eat without hitting the next person. Ran out of food of choice"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Not many old Bollywood movies to select from..."

Cons: "It was delayed for 8 hours!!!"

Pros: "Finally, a great airline with a direct flight from New York to Athens and very reasonable fares. I hope they keep it that way. Also, Newark is a much better airport to fly to and from than JFK."
Cons: "Crew was ok but could have been a little better, and the drinks selection could be improved."

Pros: "I like the food , yummy"
Cons: "I was in window seat. When serving food and beverages crew didn't give much concern."

Cons: "I had opted for wheelchair assistance and the same was not provided in New York airport. She was left on a taxi alone to get to next terminal. As she was traveling alone and has problems on her legs , she got nervous and this travel was a stress full one."

Pros: "Not"

Pros: "Great lounge for business class. Great staff. Good food on plane in business class."
Cons: "Long lay over between flights"

Pros: "I liked the meals"
Cons: "It was hard to push my chair back"

Pros: "Timeliness, service, food, entertainment"

Cons: "I found out that my payment was not verified as I arrived at the airport and I wasn't informed my email or any kind of way about it. It was a total disaster. Deeply disappointed. Regards"

Pros: "Iv only every travelled 1st class before and this time had to travel business. I hadn't realised the drop in standard would be so apparent . The staff are not as professinal , attentive and didn't seem very organised ."
Cons: "The food was below any standard iv ever flown and was quite frankly disappointed with it only the stale dry scones but the flight as whole . I voiced my concerns at the time and was apologised to . This however caused me to feel uncomfortabld and out in the spot ."

Pros: "The air conditioning worked properly"
Cons: "You asked for a drink and they never return☹️"

Cons: "I like the seat is wider, more leg room. It's quite silent compare to 777. I also feels it's spacious compared to 777."

Pros: "Received a flight credit"
Cons: "Emirates overbooked the flight and we were bumped."

Cons: "NA."

Cons: "More varieties of veg food should be introduced. Seats have a bit of less leg space No wifi"

Cons: "Crew were very rude. Didn't stop people from being in aisles when safety say belt sign was on. Access to a bathroom was limited. Dropped food on my head. Were not available at first when another passenger took my seat. Held us in the back of the plane 20minutes after business class departed."

Cons: "The crew was very impolite."

Pros: "Nice service"
Cons: "None"

Cons: "No one weighted my cabin bag while checking in. Before the security control, Emirates ground staff stopped me and weighted my cabin bag that was 8.4, around a kg extra. They didn't allow me boarding until I threw 4 shirts to the garbage and I reduced the weight. Staff was just unbelievably rude."

Pros: "Crew couldn't have been friendlier!"

Pros: "The staff were wonderful and efficient. The toilets were clean and the food was much better than my first flight with emirates although the portions were small on the main meal with only four spinach ravioli offered in a tomato sauce."
Cons: "Passengers do not fit on to their seats and overflow into the space you are occupying which is so tiny as it is. There is not enough room to even reach down to pick something up if you drop it. Overhead lockers are full. I think planes either need to be redesigned with sleeping compartments (such as the second class compartments the trains have) for overnight flights or seats need to be slightly larger to make up for the fact most people are larger today."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The crew was not enough for so many people, they looked stressed and some of them were not very nice. The seat spaces were too small for such a long trip (13 hrs) + we had 1 hour delay in Dubai."

Pros: "Confy"
Cons: "19H i guess, window seat's screen was not working"

Pros: "All the services were excellent"

Pros: "Everthing was up to the mark"
Cons: "Everything was satisfactory"

Cons: "Boarding was disorganized. Otherwise everything was good"

Cons: "Economy seating is extremely narrow!"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "On board crew provided poor services and lacked proper training. Overall, the crew were hostile toward passengers and did not provide proper services of cleaning the trays or providing adequate beverages during flight"

Cons: "not much choice in the movie selection"

Cons: "The crew should be friendlier while they deliver their service."

Cons: "in-flight food and beverage choices needs lot of improvement"

Cons: "Training for flight attendants"

Pros: "Good meal and serve more food"
Cons: "Line up to the plane shouldbe in short time"

Pros: "Great"
Cons: "Great"

Pros: "lost connection sue ro the Arline , terrible ground staff"
Cons: "lost connection sue ro the Arline , terrible ground staff"

Pros: "The flight attendants were kind and attentive and professional. I enjoyed being able to watch movies of my choice. Great selection of entertainment available. Food was good and the Hagen Daze ice cream was a great surprise!"
Cons: "I’m thin but 177cm tall (long legs) so the seats were wide but leg room was uncomfortable for me. Also, the posture of the seats are not good for spinal or neck alignment so, again not comfortable. No support for the lower back and very limited reclinablity."

Cons: "Even though our baby has broken leg our stroller was not delivered to Hongkong so we had to carry our baby whole afternoon on hands..also after arrival from Hongkong to DPS Bali one of our suitcases was destroyed- very bad experience"

Pros: "crew was courteous and highly helpful. food was good, served hot."

Pros: "Overall service"
Cons: "Nothing dpecific"

Pros: "Lots of room, excellent service, decent food. Boarding was uneventful as was the flight itself. We were late taking off, but made up time and landed on time. Only had 1 hour 25 minute layover so was a bit concerned."
Cons: "Cathay Pacific doesn't do a beverage service before serving dinner. I find it odd to get served a cocktail after the first course is served."

Pros: "Smooth and hassle-free flight arrived on time despite taking off almost 30 mins late."
Cons: "None."

Pros: "All the flights had bad Kosher food"

Pros: "Disciplined, timeliness."

Pros: "Seats were spacious enough"
Cons: "Departed about 40 minutes late without an explanation, then had to take a circuitous route around local thunderstorms which added another 30 minutes, so that we arrived over an hour late. Deplaning was also very slow, such that we cleared the airport at 1:45 AM, rather than 11:35PM as scheduled."

Pros: "thank u very much im very happy with the flight :)"

Cons: "Seat recline marginally more than in economy, but 2x+ the price. Boarding process for PE abysmal. Food - slapped on a tray."

Pros: "I liked the crew, the food, comfort. Everything made my travel experience great"

Pros: "Service was great and friendly and attentive"
Cons: "Setting chart was not accurate. It showed a space between my seat and next to me and there was no space between."

Pros: "The plane was great Boeing 350 I think great entertainment system, comfortable seats, and the Singapore new terminal 4 is wounderful"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Can not catch up the fight to guangzhou"

Pros: "16 hr flight on time despite 18 inches of snow in Boston."

Pros: "The vegetarian/vegan meals were very good for airline food. There was a great selection of entertainment options."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants who was assigned to my section, her name was Rain, was incredibly rude. Every time I asked her for a glass of water, she would sigh heavily and tell me to wait. Eventually, she stopped serving me all together and I needed to leave my seat and ask other crew members to serve my food. She was completely unprofessional and she made it clear she didn't like me, despite the fact that I was always going out of my way to be courteous. At one point, she walked down the aisle and stepped directly onto my foot, which was NOT in the aisle but under the seat in front of me. She didn't even acknowledge that she had stepped on my foot and kept walking. For a 14-hour flight, I was really bothered by her lack of professionalism. I will have to think twice before I book Cathay Pacific again."

Pros: "Comfortable seats - good entertainment"
Cons: "4-5 minutes of commercials before being able to watch the movie on the plane."

Pros: "Plane was clean"
Cons: "The crew was uninformed and unobservant to actual conditions in the cabin. They kept the air conditioning on and no one was available to address the situation. People started to take their winter coats out of the overhead bins and sit in their seats with coats on. They spent a significant amount of time repeatedly requesting that the window shades be moved up or down. Frankly, if I buy a window seat I should have the option to look out the window if I'm not disturbing my neighbors."

Pros: "Excellent crew and nothing to complain apart from the economy seats being a bit stiff."

Cons: "Very long delay leaving Hong Kong"

Pros: "2 full meals and snacks, gave you a little blanket and pillow. A lot of movies and music to choose from. Able to walk around and stretch. Most crew very helpful."
Cons: "Middle row every time and difficult to get out. Always out of the Asian meal choice if you weren't Asian. No one followed the directions the crew gave for boarding and crew seemed unable to fix that."

Pros: "The entertainment is in regards to the movie choices that I had. I wish my screen was a little bigger."
Cons: "My flight from Los Angeles to Hong Kong was cancelled due to a problem with the plane. I stood in line for 2 and a half hours at the airport only to have them tell me this. There was not visible sense of urgency on part of the staff at Cathay Pacific and they did not seem to have a contingency plan to deal with such a situation. I especially felt sorry for some of the elderly people who were also in line all that time with noting to drink and no place to sit."

Pros: "Boarding"
Cons: "Food was worse no snacks at all"

Pros: "Helpful crew"
Cons: "Cramped seating. Very little leg room"

Cons: "More than two hours delay"

Pros: "Everything was good"

Pros: "Comfortable flight"
Cons: "They ran out of the most popular food by the time they served us, and we were half way!"

Cons: "Veg meal and breakfast quality was not good. Delhi to hong Kong and from there to LA. Crew member service was not good for economy class."

Cons: "Boarding--but I never like the boarding process."

Pros: "Entertainment Nice crew from Japan"

Cons: "The service is kinda slow to respond"

Pros: "We were really taken care of and had a great experience. From the cleanliness of the plane, to the kind staff and generous in flight services/accommodations, we were very pleased. We look forward to flying Cathay Pacific again!"

Pros: "I like the crew on board being very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Online check-in system is terrible. 2 out of the 4 legs of the flights I was unable to check-in and get a seat assigned. Then there's nothing you could do except to show up at the counter on the day of the flight. How could the system be so inflexible that we are now almost in 2017?!"

Pros: "I had difficulty finding my booking reference on cathay website until it was very late. I am marco polo member but that was picked up late so my meal preferences were not picked up. Also we had pork sausage for breakfast to me one of the items tasted sumilar to beef and not pork. I would prefer that all meat sources be listed so i can make an informed choice"
Cons: "See above otherwise it was good"

Pros: "Very impressed with the quality of the entire experience."

I tried for hours to contact Turkish Airlines and their phone was disconnected. I could not reach anyone to try to re-schedule a new flight or to ask if the flight was going to be re-directed. I received no information and ended up having to book a new flight for the next day. After my flight had already left Turkish Airlines posted on their website an alert.
