Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "New aircraft"
Cons: "The willingness to provide a better quality service by the entire cabin crew and improved food quality."
Pros: "Flexible seating due to only very few passengers. On time departure and arrival"
Pros: "Nothing special."
Cons: "Meal was disappointing. Beef was overcook and hard. Service quality is just okay."
Cons: "We missed the smile and quality service liked before. Food quality is just okay. Timeliness for departure/arrival was excellent."
Pros: "Crew , amenities and food"
Cons: "Raise the cabin temperature"
Pros: "Cabin crew was amazing!"
Cons: "Food was mediocre and we've had better on Singapore Airlines before."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. seats were comfortable. The seats will be super comfortable, if there are more leg space."
Cons: "WiFi didn’t work on 3 of the 4 flights although all purportedly had it. Also didn’t work the majority of the time in the Business Class Lounge in Singapore. Food was mediocre both on flights and in the lounge. Movie selection could hardly have been worse."
Pros: "Cabin crew were great"
Cons: "Depends which plane you get some i found the seats were wider and sitting up the front. Overall a good experience as it was my first time traveling with them."
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Seafood pasta was good."
Cons: "I wish all airlines have a foot rest."
Cons: "Flight way too cold"
Pros: "Crew was polite."
Cons: "For such a long journey, the plane could have been nicer."

Pros: "Foods. Drinks. Entertainment."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything’s so perfect!"
Cons: "Short and sweet. Flight left on time and landed about 15 mins early. Crew was wonderful"
Pros: "Great service and attentiveness with great food and entertainment, including a nice big comfortable seat!"
Pros: "Easy red eye flight, just slept the whole way"
Cons: "Singapore airline is always awesome. Crew professional and very caring"
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: "Amazing service!"
Cons: "I took the 777 on my flight to Perth and the seats are so so different from the ones on A330. Don't bother with Business class if you are flying the A330. It's not worth the money."
Pros: "great crew service. my first time flying with singapore airlines and they delivered"
Pros: "great crew service. my first time flying with singapore airlines. they delivered!"
Pros: "The service from the Singapore Airlines is always impeccable. The food is delicious. The business class seat is spacious and wider than all the US airlines. There are plenty storage space in your seat space. The entertainment system has many choices and has a lot new release movies and shows."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the ride on Boeing 777 is not as smooth as the Airbus'. The noise in the cabin is louder. The seat is comfortable but the bed is not. First, the flat bed is not transformed by a button and it needs a physical person to flip it over. The mat is thin and I can feel some hard edges while lying down. The noise from the engine transmits to the bed and it is hard to sleep even with the noise cancellation headphone."
Cons: "My flight was delayed by 2 hours so I missed my connecting flight in Singapore. There was a huge queue of people who missed their connecting flight cos of an accident in the runway. The airline did nothing to prepare for this situation. It took hours to get another flight organised, communication was non existent and refreshments took ages to come. Airline didn't help with finding a hotel for stranded passengers."
Pros: "United miles."
Cons: "Entertainment very poor, no selection, I took the flt in Jan and the movies and selection was sane in Feb. Bad. Food was so so."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Not as good as they were once"
Cons: "Food wasn't the greatest but it was adequate considering shirt trip"
Pros: "Even though the flight was just 45 mins, the crew were able to pop out a beverages round"
Cons: "Nothing to mention, all was good"
Pros: "The A380 is an amazing plane. The flight was smooth and the engine sounds were fairly low."
Cons: "Waiting on line to check in was more than a half hour although there were probably only 10 people ahead of me. Got a hard time on the weight of my carry-on being more than 7kg although I had to point out that my ticket allowed me two bags that were 23kg each - I had nothing to check. Eventually, when I pointed out that I could wear enough of the clothes from the carry on, they agreed to let me take it on. On board, the service was cold, bland and infrequent. The entertainment system lost sound perhaps 20 minutes into the flight."
Pros: "Boarding ok, timely departure. Food very good for plane food."
Cons: "Announced early landing but then doing circles without any update, we ended up being 30min late. Updates would have been good."
Pros: "The service crew served us well. They are friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Too many Indian movies"
Cons: "one of the oldest planes i ever used"
Pros: "Efficient, courteous and attractive crew. Good food and drink selection and great entertainment system with large screens."
Pros: "Helpful crew. Full food service!"
Pros: "The presence and attitude of the flight attendants were highly pleasant and accommodating. The entire flight was very comfortable and made the 9 hour journey from Manchester to Houston Texas fast and enjoyable. The flight attendants always had a wonderful smile which felt genuine many a time and always made an effort to speak at the level of the passenger. When I had trouble connecting to the Wifi, one attendant even knelt down and connected my phone manually as I was not tech savvy in this regard. The food was of much higher quality as well compared to other airlines I traveled with on this trip."
Cons: "Really the only issue was there was a 2 hour delay on departure, however this was due to issues out of control of the airline and I did not mind as the airline's ambience and my experience with it overshadowed any delays."
Pros: "New plane- Airbus A350 with latest in seats, entertainment system, and cabin fittings. Decent wine. Highly courteous, attractive and attentive crew."
Pros: "New movies! Yes!"
Cons: "I asked for one of the crew to help me bring up my carry-on luggage, as i'm just recovering from a flu at that time. Instead the FA looked at my bag and asked me in an irritated tone if my bag was really that heavy? I said I was recovering and I just need an extra push once I lift it up into the cabin. In the end she did help but i did not appreciate her attitude and felt disappointed my whole flight."
Pros: "Delayed flight from Shanghai due to air traffic issues, so I had a 10 minute window to make my connection in Singapore. Ground staff was waiting for me with a small car after I disembarked to drive me to the gate. And I somehow made my connection. Excellent service. Obviously my checked bag didn't make it, but I was told in advance and was kept updated before boarding and immediate after I disembarked at my final destination. When I went to the baggage service counter, they were already ready for me, had filled out my paperwork, and just needed an address to confirm the delivery of my suitcase. I'm super impressed to this attention to detail."
Pros: "Everything was outstanding. The cleanliness of the airplane, the food, the friendliness of the crew, I just can't say enough good things about my experience flying on Singapore Airlines."
Pros: "Attendants are always nice, flight is always smooth."
Pros: "The new non stop flight frim Singapore to San Francisco really reduced the total travel time. I saved at least 4 hours in choosing this flight"
Pros: "The service was great! The entertainment was abundant. The food was tasty. No complaints at all!"
Pros: "The sevice was on point. Flight attendants were beautiful and worked harder than any other airline I have been on. The uniforms were on point too. The television had every new movie you could watch. Food, for an airline, was great. All drink service was included. Best airline I have ever flown!"
Cons: "Wifi cost 12 bucks and hour."
Pros: "Onboard Crew was great. I sympathize that they have to rush a service on a 1hr 20min flight with turbulance."
Cons: "I have started taking SQ instead of budget airlines hoping for good service and on time travel. However, both times travelling from SQ from jakarta was delayed. Yesterday, I got home 1.5hrs later than I should have. I have also to pay for additional surcharge due to midnight cab fare. Further, when I wsa travelling to Jakarta - none of the inflight entertainment was working. So it has been disappointing."
Pros: "In-flight Entertainment. Orderly & on-time boarding."
Cons: "Food selection was limited given we were traveling Economy class."
Cons: "No room, seats too tight. So close, my neighbor spills over. Toilets too small."
Cons: "Cabin too hot"
Pros: "The staff was amazing and attentive. My surfboards arrived safe and sound... And on time. I will most definitely fly Singapore Airlines again, as often as I can. Thank you."
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."
Cons: "Very small in the plane"
Pros: "The crew were amazing and attentive."
Cons: "not much choices in the movie selection"
Pros: "god food and movie selection."
Cons: "in-flight food and beverage choices needs lot of improvement"

Pros: "Seating space for short people..not average height people"
Cons: "Wider space for seats"
Pros: "Entertainment, restroom facilities and toilettries"
Cons: "Training for flight attendants"
Cons: "The check in counter service is terrible. Very unprofessional with terrible attitude. Can not pronounce the gate number clearly. After I clear up with him, he started gossiping with his colleague as it was my fault for not comprehending his English. How did Cathay Pacific become this way?"
Pros: "Comfortable seats and entertainment"
Cons: "Food even for short flights"
Pros: "seats that i selected was change when we enter the boarding gate without informing us"
Pros: "Our flight was delayed 45 in Chicago due to ice on the wings. Then about 10 mins of holding to land. With a 90 min lay over, unboarding and reboarding was rushed......but Cathay and security did their best I feel, It was only a 90 min flight and I didn't eat or watch a movie."
Cons: "Again, being 6-4, I struggle with comfort and after having no time to rest while switching planes, I was exhausted when I arrived in Manila."
Cons: "Flight was suspended I was not notified before I went to the airport"
Cons: "Delay flight and slow boarding and leaving plane."

Cons: "snack was too little"
Pros: "Good food"
Pros: "Boarding on time"
Cons: "Food was not fresh. Some crews could not understand English well"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled new departure time is 7:20am"
Pros: "Cup noodles and snacks available throughout the flight."
Cons: "Chicken curry ran out by the time I got served. I don’t really eat beef so I chose pasta, but the pasta was not substantial because it was just pasta noodles and sauce- no veges or anything with it. So I ate some cup noodles but that’s also more carbs. So no protein was available for my diet."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "That they continuously made mistakes and wasted my time and money. Let alone no sleep and carrying everything to 3 different terminals not completing my trip on any of them. Now I’m spending Valentine’s Day alone in a hotel in Hong Kong instead of meeting my gfs family and sleeping with her the first time in Manila."
Pros: "We arrived late again."
Pros: "Short flight time"
Cons: "Flight stewardess keeps saying "we don't have this, we don't have that, we run out of it""
Pros: "The airplane was nice and clean"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. Boarding was slow. We had to wait for connecting passsangers. Delay ruined the experience. We didn’t leave in a timely manner. Flight crew was nice. There was a male crew member from LAX to Hong Kong, I could heard talking to the other crew members and he was using profanity. Nothing aggressive but not professional in my opinion. He used profanity in telling his story."
Pros: "Good food, service, and inflight entertainment."
Cons: "Not boarding by zone, made it disorganized and hectic."
Pros: "Timely and professional."
Cons: "I would like a different food selection...."
Pros: "Improve quality of the food."

Cons: "Nothing stood out negatively"
Pros: "More leg room, incline on seats, blanket, pillow."
Cons: "All the adverts on Premium Economy with Cathay Pacific are inaccurate. It is NOT your secluded compartment. The curtain to economy is ALWAYS kept open...NO privacy. Food is EXACTLY SAME as economy. In LAX had to REMIND them that Premium Economy has priority boarding. There is no champagne on arrival at your seat...you have to ASK for it. Crew is always HURRIED. When you ask for a beverage or a snack, hostess and stewards have ATTITUDE. it's like they are doing a big FAVOR. Really??? we spent lots of EXTRA MONEY to be in this class. Restroom was difficult to access. Overall MAJOR DISAPPOINTMENT"
Pros: "The fight took off and landed in good time."
Cons: "I expected dinner but got a pie with water. My IFE system acted up a little. Programmes were not great."
Cons: "Luggage was damage and I didnt notice it till I arrived at connecting airport terminal in manila. Didnt have time to file a claim as I have to rush for my local connecting flight. Hopefully Cathay Pacific can take a late damage claim without a report for my luggage"
Pros: "Quick boarding and very polite crew"
Cons: "The only issue was 30 minutes waiting in HK to take off and 30 mins circling Manila waiting to land....... both of which were neither an issue with CP."
Pros: "Thank you for your services."
Pros: "Smooth operator"
Cons: "same as above"
Cons: "We were all supoosed to sit together (there were 3 of us) but my sister got separated at the last minute and put on a center seat elsewhere with no explanation."
Cons: "Simply excellent service"
Pros: "Overall excellent"
Cons: "Short gap between flight and long walk going to the next flight gate. Passing the security alone take time plus u have to walk then ride a train after that long walk again going to the gate."
Pros: "great service"
Cons: "Seats too cram feels like sardines in a can"
Cons: "Cobrar 45 euros por kilo extra no es normal"
Pros: "Amazing service and food"

Pros: "very affordable fares"
Cons: "Both flights this trip were delayed more than an hour with no explanation"
Pros: "They did their jobs."
Pros: "Good for a budget airline"
Pros: "Extra charge for luggage is so expensive even you already paid for extra luggage allowance."
Cons: "Check in process is not so user friendly. A lot of missing sign for the next step."
Pros: "Crew were kind."

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Checkin lines were really long"
Pros: "Accomodating flight attendant"
Pros: "Nice, smooth flight, everything on time. Helpful nice stuff, all was fast."
Cons: "Overpriced baggage, no complementary drinks"
Cons: "No snacks"
Cons: "The staffs are very rude and not helpful at all. They cancelled my flight just because i did not book the flight out of philippines and had to wait in the airport for 5 hours to get my baggae after they cancelled my flight. Very very dissapointing."
Pros: "Reasonably priced"
Cons: "So lacking in cleanliness.."
Pros: "The only positive of the flight, was that they accidentally gave me exit row seating."
Cons: "I didn't like that I paid almost $100 on bag fees for one basically empty check bag. They do not offer anything to drink on the flight at all. Not even the un-bottled water. If you want anything to drink you have to pay them for it. The entire flight all they did was try to pedal their over priced junk. The best part of the experience was getting off the plane and knowing that I won't ever fly with them again."
Cons: "I was thirsty at the waiting area. The staff threw away the water I just bought. I can’t drink in public fountains. In US we can eat and drink while waiting to board. I was hoping there would be complimentary water but there’s none. I was instructed to surrender my carry on underseat luggage before I boarded the plane. They didn’t tell me I had to pick it up at the baggage claim. I have all my important stuff there and it’s not locked. That was not right."
Pros: "Service was good."
Cons: "No option for on line check in Long lines at the airport check in counter Delayed departure small space on the plane"
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "For not so short flight luck of entertainment & meal"
Cons: "you have to buy water ....fiirst airline i have seen not to give water for free"
Cons: "I lost my baggages on transit flight, it was horrible, my holiday was ruined, they brought the luggages after 2 days"
Cons: "Their website didn't work when I tried to pay in advance for the baggage and seat assignment. I tried more than 20 times, from two devices, two browsers from my laptop, with two different credit cards, wasting huge amounts of time. Then they had the nerve to still charge the offline service charge for paying at the airport despite my clear description of all the time and effort I had spent on their miserable website. And they only accepted cash which required an extra ATM trip."
Pros: "It was fast and eay"
Cons: "The plane seats was a bit dirty. There were lots of left over crumbs on the seat. Bathroom is somewhat dirty too with staines"
Cons: "Typhoon LAN was the worst typhoon to hit Japan in 40 years and I requested to change my flight since the Typhoon arrived the same day as my flight. I was told that they would not waive change fees and I lost all vaule to my ticket worth over $800. Called many times but they were not helpful. Other airlines waived the change fee."
Pros: "not too much"
Cons: "one checked bag for an international flight is extra. I flew on JetStar airlines from Singapore to Manila I made a purchase $35 body spray with in the airport in Tokyo. I was told before boarding my JetStar flight that I could not keep my gifts because of the size of the bottles. I do not believe that this is fair due to the fact that I connected directly from Tokyo to Singapore. When I purchased the gifts in Tokyo I was allowed to board the flight. Is it anyway possible that I can resolve this issue?"
Cons: "Intolerant check in desk attitude. cheated for luggage fee of 50 USD."
Pros: "I liked that they are on time and the flight crew is so diverse. On board, we had multilingual attendants."
Cons: "Well, not much since I get what i paid for. Probably I'll comment on the uniforms of the crew. It'll be much cooler if it were white, not black with orange and red finishes on it."
Cons: "Takeoff delayed by 40 minutes Web checkin not recognized, they had to PRINT a boarding pass!!!!"
Cons: "Delayed because of too many planes on the tarmac, no updates whatsoever to give a sense of time and ability to make it to my connecting flight. DIRTY, tray table smeared with food sauces."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable"
Pros: "The flight was pleasantly uneventful. Cabin crew was nice and efficient. Didn't order any food so I can't rate that. Neither can I rate the entertainment since it was a short flight without such. Say at exit row so had comfortable legroom."
Cons: "Check-in was terrible. The kiosks were a huge fail. Most passengers then had to queue at regular check-in counters which were only 2. Took so long since they apparently all of a sudden don't check you in if someone else purchased your ticket. In my case my brother bought mine. They wanted to see the physical card used for purchase, along with the card owner of course. After a long wait it turns out there's no issue with my ticket since it wasn't purchased directly from jetstar. In such a case, they don't care how the ticket was bought. Their policy sucks. The self check-in kiosks are useless. I will avoid Jetstar at all costs from now on. Never have I experienced such horrible service in any airline before."
Pros: "Changi Airport will never disappoint, and regarding Jetsat I got what I payed for. It was a good flight so far."
Cons: "no complaints"
Cons: "Crew was more in the way during boarding than they were helpful."
Cons: "Delayed flights"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Long queue"
Pros: "Because it is convenient , not too crowded , good service , professionall Pilot and crew . Always on time , always sit in First Class seat in Row One , many choices of destination and flight schedul. As I said my own Private Jet and the Chepest cost possible ."
Pros: "I liked that the flight was on time, more or less"
Cons: "Got charged for changing my seat to an exit row seat, though half the flight was empty."
Pros: "You get what you pay for. So if u don't pay for water you don't get it. It conserves but at the same time, is the company that poor??"
Cons: "Nothing complimentary is offered. Not even water for a 3 hour flight. The flight attendants were ok, if that. As one was making announcements he used double entendres that are not necessarily family friendly. Excessive and unprofessional. We will definitely choose NOT to fly this airline again."
Cons: "I booked my flight and Jetstar changed my flight times. The new times would not work with my schedule. Therefore, I had to re - book with another airline at almost double the price. I never got a chance to use the Jetstar services."
Cons: "Your flight attendants were very distant. Most of them did not smile or say hello. They tried very hard not to make eye contact. The women where very beautiful and well groomed, but their spirit was ice cold. Air Asia and Bangkok Air all have better flight attendants."
Pros: "Service was good and thorough. Not a hitch."
Cons: "Improve on in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "Gteat service great experience"
Pros: "I cancelled the trip long ago. Can you send me back the tax I paied. Thanks"
Pros: "Nice crew. On time departure and arrival."

Pros: "Attendants at the check in counter were friendly"
Cons: "Flight attendants. Unfriendly."
Pros: "none will not take jetstar again"
Cons: "everything. too bumpy, no leg room, no entertainment"
Pros: "Price - very cheap"
Cons: "Very strict on carry-on weight (7kg total - i.e. if two pieces, must be 7kg or under). Basic entertainment - magazines and that's it. For some reason, the flight was moved up 10 mins earlier, but no notice was emailed or given out ahead of time"
Pros: "Everything just as planned. Perfect, thanks"
Cons: "I don't have any issues,"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, Fast efficient service. Value"
Cons: "Luggage charge for two small bags was over 1 million rupiah!!! It was an outrageous and unfair charge. I purchased luggage allowance online via another website I purchased luggage allowance online via another website. But it did not get recorded on just are. & I have to pay enormous amounts for my luggage. I would rather fly full service airlines next time."
