Pros: "Food was good but not on every segment. Unlike many other airlines, ANA ticket counter team was very good. Japanese cabin crew etiquette & respectfulness are appreciated."

Pros: "Crew were very good. Cabin was also much better than Qantas premium economy cabin."

Very nice, professional staff even after 13 hours of flight. Just excellent. Thank you for this very pleasant experience. Will definitely fly Singapore Airlines again."
Cons: "There is room for improvement with the special meals. The non gluten brun was very hard. In general it would be nice if passengers could pre-order from a set selection of foods online what they would like on their tray. This would hopefully lower the amount of food that sadly goes to waste. Also it would be nice to have gluten free snacks on board. Flying with celiac disease is not easy."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and responsive to my needs. They met it with a smile."
Pros: "USB and plug for every seat, reasonable leg space and leg rest, good food choice and very attentive crew."
Cons: "No negative points"
Pros: "Scoot employees were really helpful, I missed my flight from Singapore to Kochi because by the time the passengers got off the flight and went through immigration in Singapore, the check in counter had closed, and there was no more flights available to Kochi until 2 days later. The employees made sure I boarded my flight and I came home to my sister’s wedding"
Cons: "Kayak doesn’t specify its two separate tickets for my destination to kochi from Honolulu, also they didn’t specify their would be a stop in Japan before the flight reached Singapore. The flights were delayed by a few minutes, which led to me stressing to make it on time to my flights, and I felt dehydrated and nauseous. Also the website doesn’t specify that we will have to purchase meals either before hand or on board, and that the airlines only took cash and no credit card. It was miserable, a whole 20+ hour flight with lots of stress of catching my flight, checking and the checking my baggage, and being hungry and thirsty because I didn’t carry enough cash on me."
Pros: "Singapore airline crew is always top notch in terms of service and attentiveness. It's a direct flight from Singapore to Canberra! Beats the layover in Sydney or Melbourne."
Cons: "Business class seats were uncomfortable compared to other business class. They're not lay flat seats, and I can't get the seat even close to flat because my feet jam in to the bottom of the seat in front of me. The food wasn't great, some of the meal which was supposed to be served hot was still cold."
Pros: "Great entertainment system for a short haul fl flight"
Cons: "Terrible food"
Pros: "Service by the crew was great"

Pros: "Premium economy"
Pros: "Priority line for boarding and security, reclining seats, foot stand"
Cons: "Priority boarding not available in India, food and food choices and lackluster service"
Pros: "Excellent crew services"
Cons: "Entertainment system is rather tired for today’s standard for first tier airlines, in particular the headphone jacks which may not work from wear & tear. It’s a hit & miss whether the sound works or not. Obviously mine didn’t on one side this time. Very frustrating if you are on a long flight and there’s nothing you can do if the flight is full."
Pros: "food. schedule was on time"
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: "All went great"
Cons: "I liked all - end to end excellent service"
Pros: "Very friendly crew & modern aircraft"
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."
Cons: "Old planes and screens."
Pros: "Singapore service is always outstanding"
Cons: "temp on plane was freezing and even two blankets did not suffice. Everyone was really cold."
Pros: "Entertainment was awesome. Boarding was fast."
Cons: "Not enough food served (only two meals on a sixteen hour flight) and tasted okay. Crew was not all friendly."
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: "Crew was very attentive and professional"
Cons: "Return flight the movies were the same as three weeks earlier."
Pros: "Everything on time."
Cons: "Nothing really bad one food on return flight not great but ok."
Cons: "No room, seats too tight. So close, my neighbor spills over. Toilets too small."
Pros: "Lots of movie and game options"
Cons: "Staff was slow to tend to my needs (i.e. Water), continually bumped into my shoulder or leg. Would not accommodate moving my seat next to my wife's because a couple wanted to have an entire row to themselves. Very frustrating"
Pros: "Thank you flight itself was v good but not check in"
Cons: "Check in was terrible Long slow moving lines to just drop a bag! Can definitely improve as it is not like this anywhere any longer"
Pros: "Very comfortable and enjoyable flight"
Cons: "I bought my seat assignment in advance, and they did not give me this seat on the plane. Before boarding, I asked at the gate if my new seat was a window--which is what I paid for--and they confirmed yes, my new seat was a window. Turns out, it was not, it was a middle seat. I asked a flight attendant to relocate me to a window seat, which she kindly did, however this seat was quite uncomfortable as I was seated next to a large gentleman who probably should have been required to purchase two seats. Overall, there were two issues with Qatar Airways during this trip: they did not give me the seat I had requested and paid for, and then lied when I asked if my new seat was a window."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable. The entertainment system was wonderful."
Cons: "The crew was disorganized."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Longer wifi time and faster connection"
Pros: "Yes very"
Pros: "Food, seat, entertainment"
Cons: "The staff though friendly was found to be unhelpful. I was literally carrying three bags and a toddler in my arms, and passed by at least three crew members. But none of them bothered helping me. Your measure of success is not just how well you treat your business class. That’s not being world class"
Pros: "Everything was good and nice. Had a good time and felt welcomed. Had a really good experience."
Cons: "Handling flight delay"
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Pros: "Crew excellent"
Cons: "Baggage collection at Washington could be improved"
Cons: "Need to improve wheel chair service at Doha."
Pros: "Great crew. Met every request and did a very professional, yet personal job."
Cons: "Overall meals were best I've had on flights. Did not care for last one but probably just a personal taste."
Cons: "I was given incorrect date and missed my flight. I had to spend 750 £ and buy a flight from another airline to get home"
Pros: "Efficient, and courteous,seats too were comfy, neat amd clean"
Pros: "Leg room and cleanlness. Polite crew members"
Cons: "No entertainment. Very old movies and mainly in other languages not English. None for blacks to watch or listen"
Cons: "Doha to Washington plane was an old plane where entertainment system did not function properly, seats did not recline etc. Emirates A380 is a lot more comfortable plane."
Pros: "Patricia (cabin crew member) was particularly nice to us, and encouraged us to move to a row of empty seats so we could lie down and sleep for the second leg of our 24-hour flight. Air ventilation on this plane is excellent. Food was good. my low-lactose meal found me even after I had moved seats. overall excellent flight."
Pros: "The trip was very comfortable and food suited me"
Pros: "Very comfortable flight and helpful crew"

Cons: "The bathrooms ran out of water. Not a great movie selection and almost didn't have any choice for lunch."
Pros: "On business class, so service was extraordinary"
Pros: "I flew from Bali to Doha and then Doha to Dulles after an 8 hour layover. Both flights operated a Boeing 777. The planes were spotlessly clean both flights. The menu choices were amazing and the wine selections were very good. What made the difference was the attentiveness of the cabin crew. I would particularly like to commend the purser and the flight attendants on flight 707 DOH-IAD for their assistance and willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty"
Cons: "Flight 707 was supposed to have the new Qsuites in Business Class, so it was disappointing that without prior notice the airline switched to an aircraft with normal (but quite good) business class seating. Nevertheless, the purser and the flight attendants made the flight memorable in a very positive way."
Cons: "The seat from Jakarta to Doha, especially the head/neck holder was uncomfortoble. Too big and stiff and wasn’t on the right possition even though it is adjustable. One of the crew didn’t say anything, not even smile after she opened the curtain between bussiness and economy class at row J K L. She just walked away."
Pros: "Food, entertainment options, comfortable seats, warm blankets"
Pros: "Good movies, comfortable seats"
Cons: "Staff was not attentive. When requested for a drink with meal, the hostess promised to bring it later but never did."
Cons: "I used Qatar airways 3 times so far. In the last flight, were a connection has 8 hours between 2 flights, they deny me to stay in a hotel. The last 2 flights which have exactly the same schedule, I used the hotel in that 8 hours between the 2 flights. I asked why, they told me that my ticket is not eligible to the hotel, although, I bought the last two times from Kayak, with almost same price. My first flight with Qatar Airways was on July 2017. My second flight with Qatar Airways was on August 2017. My third flight with Qatar Airways was on Jan 208."
Pros: "Helpful and friendly flight staff, comfortable business class seating that provided privacy and room for personal carry-on bag and toiletries."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "The Qatar crew was great and the entertainment was on point."
Cons: "That my departure times were 1 to 2 hours earlier than what was on my electronic ticket, if I hadn't checked on the airport website, I would've missed all my flights!!"
Pros: "Excellent staff, good service."
Cons: "A Long. Trip"
Cons: "The crew at the ticket counter was quite rude. Our suitcases were 2kg heavier so, in front of them we opened and removed items and then they still made us go through security all over again"
Cons: "Checkin at Jakarta needs fine tuning. Checkin in started 30mins later than what the QR rep informed me an hr previously. QR lounge needs upgrading."
Pros: "Much better than the flight from Mumbai to Doha. The crew was attentive."
Cons: "Meals could have been better. The good didn't compare to business class on other airlines."
Pros: "Onboard crew"
Cons: "Boarding process. It could start on time as printed on the boarding pass. If it is by zone, the provide a few minutes between the zones and adjust time accordingly."
Pros: "Crew professionalism"
Cons: "Food: at best a B+ Laptop Wrapping at gate: very slow process Entertaining: movie variety is poor. Seat: even in business class the seat doesn't recline completely... not very comfortable as compared to other airlines"
Pros: "The seating, crew members, and entertainment was really good."
Cons: "I was given two options to choose from for brunch which were scrambled egg with sausage and paratha. Upon asking for paratha I was told that they ran out of Paratha. This happened very first time with me. Even though the crew provided me with excellent service I was surprised to hear the Qatar Airways could run out of food?"
Pros: "-Great selection of movies, Ted talks, and games to view on individual screens, headphones were provided. - Blankets and pillows were provided to everyone, along with a kit with toothbrush, toothpaste, socks, and eye mask. - Adjustable head rest."
Cons: "- Tiny, cramped seats and aisles. I'd heard the Quatar has more leg room than other airlines. This is definitely not true. If the person in front of me reclined all the way, they crushed my knees and I'm only 5'7". - Bathrooms were dirty by 4 hours into the 14 hour flight. Sinks clogged, garbage can overflowing. Not just one bathroom. Gross. - Worst flight attendant service I've ever had, and I don't expect much since I've traveled a lot. Service was rushed, coffee cart for our side of plane never arrived, when I walked to the back to ask for some, they couldn't find the milk and made a fuss about looking for sugar. Lots of similar examples throughout the flight. - The baggage claim carousel number never appeared on the screens at IAD after landing. Other flights showed but not Quatar. We waited a while then walked around to check them all until we found the right carousel. Never seen this happen before. - One of our bags never appeared, so we waited until all luggage had come out and checked with the counter. They found our bag somewhere and brought it over after a 20 minute wait. No explanation given. Good thing we'd counted bags."
Pros: "-Great selection of movies, Ted talks, and games to view on individual screens, headphones were provided. - Blankets and pillows were provided to everyone, along with a kit with toothbrush, toothpaste, socks, and eye mask. - Adjustable head rest. - Nice to have wifi, although only 15 minutes is free."
Cons: "- Tiny, cramped seats and aisles. I'd heard the Quatar has more leg room than other airlines. This is definitely not true. If the person in front of me reclined all the way, they crushed my knees and I'm only 5'7". - Seat cushions are thin and hard. - baggage check in took a very long time; about 45-60"
Pros: "Very nice"
Cons: "Crews walking between the lines. They don't care pushing to others. They never said sorry for that."
Pros: "The best service"
Cons: "Nothing bad to say"
Pros: "Seats are very much smaller in economy. Hotel accommodation was no where close to good in comparison to Emirates or Thai."
Cons: "ANAZING flight staff! Friendly and courteous!!!! Loved them on all four flights!!!!"
Pros: "The crew was excellent."
Cons: "The flight was late boarding everyone on time. It was delayed 1.5 hrs. The entertainment system had its fault, as it was difficult to navigate between screens. The seats were uncomfortable and not enough room for such a long flight. The kids were extremely uncomfortable on this flight, as many were crying throughout the journey."
Cons: "I never made it to the Yerevan to Doha flight, because Qatar Airways did not get me to my destination in time. They had an emergency landing in The Azores, after turbulence and several passengers got injured, when the pilot failed to warn passengers to put on their seat belts and they flew into the air, hitting the ceiling before falling down. One passenger had a heart attack. Once they de-planed us in The Azores, not a single Qatar Airways employee helped us on site anymore. Passengers were left in the hands of hotel and airport staff. There was very little communication with the passengers. A relief flight was supposed to come in 12 hours. It did not come for another 35. After the emergency landing, some passengers noticed that a wing looked defective. The disruption may not have been due only to bad weather, but a defective plane as well."

Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "Great customer service"
Pros: "Everything was very nice"
Pros: "Whether coach, business or 1st class, Emirates creates their passengers with respect and thanks in all they do. A 13 hour flight is no short haul and the Emirates staff kept a positive aire throughout the flight. The meals were very good, the service as well. The facilities were kept clean and accessible.

Cabin personnel of multiple nationalities and languages only added to the flight. They even returned my phone mistakenly left on board. Would recommend them to all."
Cons: "Entertainment system on smaller planes not as responsive as newer models. They need to improve web info to share layover process for hotel vouchers and visa."

Cons: "For in-flight service call to flight attendant, it took 30 mins for response, and in the meantime two attendants walked by and waved me off. The next time I asked an attendant for water, he said sure he would get it, but he never showed up. Their water & juice service is not adequate for long-haul flights. Dubai has poor air quality, which might be bothersome for a long layover."

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: "Food was great, and the business class 777 seats are a delight. And the captain shuts up through the entire flight --- no interrupting your sleep or movie with stupid observations that no-one wants to hear."
Cons: "The quality of the screens (crappy slow resistive touchscreens) is completely unacceptable for business class in 2018. China Airlines screens are VASTLY superior in their hardware, their speed, and the quality of their UI. And running an ad before EVERY movie --- in business?! Talk about an airline having no sense of class. That's a cheap, stupid move."
Cons: "I was NOT able to choose our seats, so we couldn't sit together and were in the last two rows, in middle seats! It also took us 15 minutes to jog to the opposite end of the airport to just make our connecting flight. I would not fly with Cathay again!"

Pros: "Superb crew and excellent service."
Pros: "Flight was delayed Made connection just in time"

Cons: "Hindi movies not that many choices."
Pros: "Friendly staff and helped me."
Cons: "The one issue I had was that the crew members did not come around with drinks aside from during meal times. This is a 15+ hour flight, and people got so thirsty that a line of people went to the kitchen themselves to get water."
Pros: "Smooth operator"
Pros: "They gave 250 ml bottle water each on breakfast and dinner I like that . The crew members were helpful and friendly"
Cons: "There was less choice of movie. It would be good if they add more Bollywood movies and movies with more than 4 rankings."
Pros: "Great seat. Flew from Hong Kong to Manchester and had a good 7 hour sleep. Food, especially breakfast was amazing with a dim sum selection. Crew was fantastic as always."
Cons: "Dinner however was a little lackluster with a prawn and crab meat stir fry which was a little bland."
Cons: "Cobrar 45 euros por kilo extra no es normal"
Pros: "Amazing service and food"
Cons: "Little cramped bit not bad"
Pros: "Cathay offer a hotel for the overnight delay at Grand Harbor hotel with a free taxi voucher. This is a good help for us to prepare for the horrible next day."
Cons: "The missed flight to SFO was replaced by another flight to LAX next day and then from LAX to SFO via United as domestic flight. This is horrible experience since we had to check out all luggages, go through custom and then check in the bags again with all weighing problems. The worse is that to go from International terminal to United domestic counter, we had to pull the luggages along the curb from one end of the airport to the other side of it. We will never take this option again"
Cons: "The headphones did not work."
Pros: "Cathay Pacific has the most attentive flight attendants of any airline on the planet. We had a tight connection in Hong Kong.

Pros: "Crew is lovely"

Pros: "Shorter flight airplane much nicer"
Pros: "Crew were nice and accommodating. Food was good."
Cons: "Useless English movies and very few latest movies."
Cons: "Seat can not be reclined, where it makes you slouch, very uncomfortable position. Meal time is rather odd, should be re schedule since we depart on early morning hour."
Pros: "The crews on Cathay Pacific set the standard by which all airlines could learn. Experienced, professional, helpful and courteous. Gentle with the elderly, going the extra mile to make them comfortable. No bickering between flight attendants, they work as a team and made my first time experience flying into another country enjoyable."
Cons: "Most airline food is awful. It is what it is. The fruit appears to be frozen and just thawing making it a bit tasteless. However, it is better than most while traveling within the USA."
Pros: "The entertainment system is quite good."
Cons: "The food, while hot, is not quite as good as ANA's offerings, but I was happy to have it. The chair cushions are also a bit thin on the bottom, or they are rather hard, but overall I found them otherwise fairly spacious."
