Pros: "I loved that the airline offered several meals, snack options and drinks. The attendants were amazing and would highly recommend Singapore airlines to anyone flying internationally"

Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"

Cons: "The service was beyond awful! The Flight Attendants had a “could care less” attitude. I had special ordered a meal, and they gave me the wrong one. I did not want to make a big deal, so I just ate it. Then they did not offer any beverages when the meal came! I literally had to beg them to make me their famous “Singapore sling”. Shocking really!!. When I had my coffee, my request for cream and sugar went ignored THREE times. Finally they grudgingly gave me only cream, rendering my coffee undrinkable. .....And the list goes on. Never ever will I travel on this horrid airline again!"

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."

I was put through 3 security checks when I already went through security in KTM. On the 3rd check my Dutyfree whiskey was taken from me because they would not let me take it in my carry on. They said I could take it if I checked my carry on bag (one backpack). My carry on has everything I need for a 16 hour flight. Plus, I had my very expensive camera gear in there too so I could not do this. This was unfair and Qatar needs to step up and return my Dutyfree whiskey and reimburse for the flight without TV. I will never suggest Qatar to anyone."

Cons: "Some Cabin Crew are RUDE fromEven though Cabin Crew manage to gave us what we preferred to eat. They are the best. Doha -Kathmandu. They treated some senior citizens passengers who wouldn’t understand english with some disrespect. In addition, we had some problem with meal that was pre-ordered. It was probably system glitch but our meal selection wasn’t registered and Crew didn’t have idea about our meal."
Pros: "the room on the plane, the food, the service was all great ! I was worried about the international flight but Qatar made it a great experience!!!"

Pros: "attentive crew food was good"
Cons: "old entertainment options little space to move about"

There were no problemsThe food was airline food and I don't really care for it but I don't think there's anything that can be helped about that. :) my face it was processed promptly and my reservation was handled promptly at the information desk ."
Cons: "The food was airline food and I don't really care for it but I don't think there's anything that can be helped about that. :-)"

Cons: "Meal plan customer service"
Pros: "landed safely"
Cons: "Had to claim bags at Doha and go through multiple security screenings to board connecting flight. At one point all the security was not functioning and we were packed up in lines. Barely had time to stop at the restroom before final security check where it was all so disorganized. After that check we were told that if we left we had to go through security again. Would have been nice to know that upfront. It was a madhouse going through that final security check and my husband's wallet was lost for a bit. No one really tried to help and we were told to move aside. Finally someone saw that it had fallen beside one of the counters. It was all horrible. Because of all this our 5 hour layover was a hassle with no time for food, etc. The whole airport experience was confusing and badly handled."
Pros: "First flight was okay"
Cons: "My return flight then follow on with Qatar airways to Baghdad was cancelled and they didnt tell me that on my first leg i could have stayed longer as i was re directed to a later flight making my total layover 18hrs in Doha i rather have stayed in Philippines that extra 8 hrs"

Pros: "Worst service from hyd to doha"
Cons: "I have travelled fro hyderabad to miami,i had a bad experience at hyderabad air port at qatar counter for baggage Please baggage standards should be unique across all airports travelling from miami they accepted the laptop bag plus 7kg small trolley cabin luggage In retun journey qatar pople said laptop and small trolly bag should be of 7kg .my laptop itself 6kgs is there and they charged me 65usd as excess luggage. I said iwas not charged extra at miami why you are charging extra here ,they said rules are different at miami but in hyderabad this is the case I am very much frustrated on this service ,atleast once in a year i will travell on qatar from next time i never prefer to travel on this carrier. Thanks a lot for great qatar servic"
Pros: "I have been in qatar airways many a times and they have done an excellent job connecting Kathmandu to outside world. The experience is usually very nice-the plane is in good condition, the fly crew are always smiling and helping, the food and entertainment are great."
Cons: "May be this is one time thing, but the ground crew were terrible, particularly the man who was on the check-in counter. Spoke with a robotic tone and was very rude. Spoke as if he owned the plane and we were asking for a free ride. Very disappointing start to a long journey."
Pros: "I loved the hospitality and the smooth comfortable flight. The plane was full but there was enough space for everyone to relax comfortably during the flight."
Cons: "Nothing as such"
Pros: "Emirates deserves its reputation for providing an overall enjoyable experience"
Cons: "New Jersey airport is seriously lacking in functioning systems"
Pros: "Flying on economy Emirates was a fantastic experience. It should be the industry standard."
Cons: "The entire experience"
Pros: "Better food than out of Newark. Crew helpful as always."
Cons: "Legroom is poor but unlike the Newark-Athens leg, I was able to get an aisle seat that allowed me to stretch a bit. Choice of English language movies is poor. Depending on the price I would still prefer the Delta non stop flight from US to Greece because of the movie choices and ease of use of remote control."
Cons: "The food selection was limited and not tasteful!"
Pros: "In flight crew were pleasant"
Cons: "I was made to pay excess luggage because my carry-on was 1kg overweight. I was very depressed because of this treatment and the ground crew in Lagos were abusive when I complained and they threatened me that I would miss my flight if I didn't comply"
Pros: "The cabin crew was attentive and helpful."
Cons: "The flight seemed crowded and did not have enough room for carry on baggage."
Pros: "Emirates is a true Customer Service oriented airline. It is a relief to know that in this age of carriers that charge you a lot and treat you like you are paying a bus ticket there are airlines that still know the key to success. Boarding was fine and not dependent on local personalities. You can tell the company cares about training. The food and entertainment is excellent. Seats are still a little smaller but they try and make up with it with other perks. Flight crew was polite, smiling, and accommodating no matter the time. Pillows, blankets, snacks, etc. all given without having to ask or be charged. We were also given these little self care packs with toothbrush & paste, eye pillow, socks, and earplugs! Overall it made a long flight over night very comfortable."
Pros: "Good selection of movies. Nice staff- some of which were able to handle difficult customers better than others."
Cons: "Both flights to Athens and returning to New York were very delayed. As a result, passengers were annoyed and staff members looked obviously stressed as well. On the whole my impression is that this airline keeps up appearances very well but is in fact somewhat disorganized."
Pros: "Everything was amazing, from check in to deplaning. I’m going to sign up on their frequent flyer program."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic"
Cons: "Newark airport is depressing. Lighting in boarding area is simply awful. Also, cab fare to and from NYC is much too high. Midnight departure time of the flight to Greece is inconvenient. It is just too late. Getting through customs at Newark is a chore. There are not enough computers for passengers to report what they have to report. Also, many passengers I saw did not know how to use a computer."
Pros: "quality and friendship"
Cons: "Electronic Entert can be more accessible More access to news"
Pros: "Once on the flight everything was great! Flying stars"
Cons: "Online check-in was a horrible experience and a waste of time. I was never able to check in before getting to the airport. Website kept kicking back errors when trying to check in."
Cons: "Presssigned seats were horrible. Middle 2 of the 4 seater."
Pros: "The service the movies the food"
Pros: "Flight tracker should be upgraded, I expect the mileage covered was way off. Also, I don't want to see commercials while I follow the flight. The forward camera was cool."
Cons: "Crew should keep eye on the toilets. The waste basket was backed up."
Pros: "The staff are extremely friendly and accommodating. The plane itself was clean and there were plenty of bathrooms. It was great to have two free meals, drinks and entertainment making a 10 hour flight go by faster. I love the eye masks and ear plugs to make sleeping on a plane easier. All around success and would fly again with them!"
Cons: "On the flight home the crew seemed a little confused who was in charge of my row. I had to go get myself the customs forms and a pen. Also the front of the plan was extremely hot compared to the back."
Pros: "Meals and free wine were positives. Also the travel toothbrush and toothpaste were nice. Entertainment with movies and tv had a lot of variety also."
Cons: "It took 45 minutes to get out bags! Crew bags came out immediately but customers stood around the luggage belt for more than 45 minutes b/c thats how long it took to get our bags and many people were left. Very annoying after a 10-hour flight that lands late at night."
Pros: "The staff & the service"
Cons: "The entertainment set up was dated and malfunctioning"
Pros: "we were travelling with kids. They pulled us from the back and put us in the front since our group of 6 had two small kids. They were extremely nice to us in athens."
Cons: "I just wish there was a snack in the middle of the service."
Pros: "Crew members were great. Was on time and early."
Cons: "1. Seats seemed tighter than I'm used to. 3-4-3 setup from ATH to EWR. I flew it today. 2. Food: standard. Not ethnic which I was expecting for a Dubai airline. 3. Color scheme: overhead lighting was your yellow incandescent light bulb color. Made the interior feel dated. However the ceilings had tiny lines like stars. This was a nice touch."
Pros: "More legroom in economy class for the 10 hour flight between Newark and Athens."
Pros: "Overall a pleasant and comfortable flight."
Pros: "5000 channels. Entire Alien movie series :) Also food was excellent."
Pros: "The service of the airline. The food was good."
Cons: "The seats were very small and tight. Most other long haul flights the seats are much more comfortable."
Pros: "The crew was fabulous. Beautifully dressed; impeccable makeup; very professional. Very friendly, helpful. PILOTS were amazing!!! GREAT FLIGHT, LITTLE TURBULENCE. LOVE the stickers found in the bag with the earphones, ("WAKE FOR FOOD", "DO NOT WAKE FOR FOOD", etc) but they were never mentioned by the crew. Found them by myself. I think more people would use if they knew about them. LOVE the gift bag with eye mask, etc. Very welcome gift."
Cons: "Seats are too small. Very difficult to stand up and get out of your seat. Even young people have trouble getting up and out into the aisle. The aisle is TOO NARROW! At least one seat on each row should be eliminated, as well as one row to give economy class room. I was on the aisle (seat D), and was unlucky to have a woman and her husband (seats E & F) ask me to get up several times (because passenger in seat G was asleep). I was not at all happy with the movie choices; they were mostly modern and violent. Food selection was unavailable. Menu choices were chicken & fish. Chicken was NOT AVAILABLE."
Pros: "All the Air Team Crew were really friendly. On the first connection to from Nairobi to Dubai, I sat next to a fellow passenger who was nervous about the moderate turbulance that we hit. At the end of the flight, as we waited to disembark, a lovely Attendant stood next to us and we had the most warm friendly conversation I've ever had in all my years of flying. She made us feel like friends as she gave us an insight into her 'high flying' lifestyle while being professional. Unfortunately I can't remember her name as I would have loved to give her a special mention but she was so lovely."
Cons: "I didn't have much to dislike but I do recall not being woken up for a meal even though I had my sticker on the top of my chair. I was sitting on an aisle seat. Other than that, this was my first flight with emirates and it was truly awesome!"
Pros: "The fligh went smooth"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "I love the value for the money and the friendliness of the staff--will definitely fly this airline again!"
Cons: "They ran out of a meal option, which meant that 1/4 of the plan didn't eat because they didn't like or couldn't have the other option."
Pros: "Times were great! Food was decent for airline food comfortable seats great selection of movies"
Cons: "I liked everything"
Pros: "I can't believe how nice this was for getting such a good price. Good space, Tons of movies, super attentive staff."
Pros: "Nice food. Fast boarding. Liked the small bag with travel products."
Cons: "Crew gathered blankets 30' before landing while the cabin was really cold. Crew didn't ask if you want sth to drink and were just passsing by with the trays.Movies didn't have english subs while at the same time sound was bad."
Pros: "Great flight even in economy! Two good meals, personal entertainment with close to a 100 movies to select from and great service by the crew."
Pros: "Lots of movies to watch -- when the system was actually working."
Cons: "The food was THE worst I've ever had on any flight ever. And they served the same food for both meals... chicken, fish, or pasta for dinner AND breakfast... the latter which was at 3am of the time zone I was coming from. Both my kids (5 and 7) REFUSED to eat any of the food except the brew& butter, despite starving. My row and row behind me lost power during the flight so we had NO entertainment, and could no longer charge our devices for the rest of the 11-hour flight. They offered us magazines, but we had no overhead lights to be able to see. The crew managed to reboot the system about 2 hours after the first meal, so we enjoyed some entertainment, but after a little while, the movie and sound stopped working. After about an hour an announcement was made that the entire entertainment system would be rebooted. It started working around the last hour of the flight. Not relaxing at all."
Pros: "Business class upgrade was available for this flight, and it was well worth it."
Cons: "The food was mediocre, at best. Odd food combination choices. I don't expect gourmet on a flight, so don't try to pretend you're serving it."
Pros: "Entertainment was good, boarding was OK. Leg-room much better than on competing direct flight US carriers, and aircraft cabin better maintained."
Cons: "Food for kids terrible, just not edible taste-wise. Catering is better flying out of Greece than on same flight returning from U.S. Bathrooms need to be cleaned and restocked during flight."
Pros: "Very courteous and attentive And always with a smile! A great way to travel, it's hard to go back to other airlines after having experienced Emirates!"
Pros: "the attention, the comfort, the large amount and options of movies, shows, entertainment channels; the food was good. and most of all the smooth flight and experienced pilots"
Cons: "Fantastic customer service and attentive staff"
Pros: "Food, comfort, service -- all excellent for the 10hr flight from Athens to NYC! Hands down better than any other airline I've flown with for same number of hours and distance."
Cons: "While there was much in the way of options for entertainment, navigating the system & touch screen was a pain. Often the mouse doesn't follow your touch and you end up clicking things you didn't mean to click + having to press multiple times."
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: "Highly recommend Emirates"
Cons: "Food baf"
Pros: "Compared to the cattle car feeling of many airlines today, Emirates feels like gracious luxury and hospitality, and that's for economy class. I will try to fly with them as much as I can. First rate experience. Very good ticket price and a convenient non-stop route- unlike some low fares that want to add hours and hours to your travel by routing you through the home country of the airline. Great entertainment choices. Some TV functionality issues for a seatmate, but he was able to change seats. cabin crew was multinational, multilingual, and warm and professional. It reminded me of the way air travel used to be."
Pros: "The food was great"
Cons: "The fleight was great too"
Pros: "The food, the crew, the attention to detail."
Cons: "The entertainment interface was average, I've seen better."
Pros: "The staff, food, everything! Best flight and airline ever"
Pros: "Overall was good"
Cons: "Didn't live up to expectations. Halfway through a 10 hour flight the entertainment system went down. It took a few times of calling the stewards to actually communicate the issue and inexplicably the system was never reset until 15 minutes before landing. I understand things happen but communication was lacking and slow."
Pros: "Great plane (new) Good food Boarding was very very smooth"
Cons: "The crew was OK, some of them where a little "grumpy" There was no WiFi on the plane (not even paid, although I asked again and again). The excuse was that the plane was new and they did not have the time to install WiFi..... the bad thing is that I was counting on the paid version to keep up with work (as I did on the other flight) but was unable and there was not prior notification on that."
Cons: "Everything can be upgraded as nothing works in air india. Bathrooms are always either flooded or so dirty. Need more hygienic way of traveling."
Cons: "Seats and entertainment system and programs can be better.everythibg is old in air india. They need to upgrade."
Pros: "Airport in Delhi was nice. Terminal was the furthest away though so that was bad."
Cons: "Super late- didn’t board until after the flight was meant to depart causing me to miss my pickup. Food is terrible. There is no entertainment whatsoever, no charging ports to tv or movies. Quite possibly the worst take off and landing of my 35+ flights this year. The staff is friendly but the airline is terrible. Seats were dirty with stains on the headrest, no legroom and no availability for upgrades."
Pros: "Good enough for 1.5 hour flight, drinks and food were provided."
Cons: "Late boarding/very long takeoff"
Pros: "Overall we had wonderful experience. Good service, food good, good entertainment, courteous staff. I recommend this airline."
Cons: "Can't say anything."
Pros: "New airplane - 787"
Cons: "Terrible service. Would not seat family together, even though it is law in EU to sit with child. Lazy customer service reps, talked to five and no one would help."
Pros: "Lots of leg room. Food was decent."
Cons: "Late missed connecting flight."
Pros: "Non stop"
Cons: "Poor quality food Artogant staff"
Pros: "Food was good and crew was nice in face of passengers upset that their meal choice was out."
Cons: "Flight was delayed several times so I ended up spending 3 hours in the waiting area (no A/C or Gold lounge)."
Cons: "I had a valid ticket with a seat number ,yet I could not board the flight, as the airline said we are over booked. I had to postpone my journey for another day. Resulting in tremendous financial and reputation loss"
Cons: "Behavior of both Air India and Sri Lanka airport staff was very very unfriendly. Non responsive. I got stranded in Delhi."
Pros: "Air India is fine airline. Appreciated the help getting to connecting flight"
Cons: "The problem was the times printed on our itinerary was wrong. Nepal is 15 minutes different from Delhi and Delhi is 30 min diy from rest of world. Go figure. So we ended up with tight connections even though out itinerary did not show that."
Pros: "Once on board crew is as always extremely courteous."
Cons: "No notifications of flight delays, no updates, I get it it’s Kathmandu not Narita but still."
Cons: "Air India is worsted flights and checkin staff ."
Cons: "I got sick from the veg meal"
Cons: "They should upgrade/fix the broken devices."
Pros: "When a reservation glitch meant our special diet meals were not available, the crew scrambled to find some alternative food for us."
Cons: "Even though the new Boeing 787 is supposed to provide an enhanced flying experience, the close seats and limited seat pitch made the flight as uncomfortable as other, older planes."
Pros: "Commenta are the same as the one posted for the other flight."
Cons: "flight was delayed but we were not given a reason why"
Pros: "The attention to detail by the flight attendants The easy transition from the door of the terminal to the plane"
Cons: "I flew air india 3 times this trip. All flights were late or postponed (5 hours in one case, 2 in the others). Crew were unfriendly and in one case rude, planes are old and uncomfortable, no safety briefing on one flight. The airline is unprofessional and generally miserable"
Pros: "The food in economy was better than first class food on Delta and American! Economy seats were comparable to delta/American/united, and I was in a route serviced with just Dreamliners, which are nice! Very kind crew who seemed to enjoy their jobs."
Cons: "Could not check in online Selection of American movies was on the small side"
Cons: "Online check-in didn't work; physical check-in process was exceptionally long. No beverage service on the flight. Took 6 hours to find out they had some sort of cart in the back that you could visit for drinks. No diet soda at all, and the soda I did get came in a dirty can. It looked like it was covered in dirt or clay, or something that resembled rust. Will not fly again unless absolutely necessary. The only positive aspect was the star alliance affiliation so I could get my miles to my account."
Pros: "The flight took off at scheduled time."
Cons: "The TV and overhead reading light did not work, so I could niether read nor watch TV for 14 hrs of flight. Out of 4 Lavatories in my section, 3 stopped working halfway into the journey."
Pros: "I liked that we got there safely"
Cons: "The plane was very old. Things didn't work very well or not at all, such as the headphone jack & the remote control. My seat was broken and the leg rest would not retract which really restricted my comfort. The food was shocking, we did not receive any hot food for around 6-8 hours into the flight. Only got offered and Indian pastry and peanuts within the first 6-8 hours. For a 17 hour flight the food was not acceptable plus the choices were very limited. We did not get offered any alcoholic beverages & the staff were not very helpful I felt & the toilets were not kept clean or tidy at all throughout the flight. Overall not good!!! Would not fly agin with them. Lastly... I am Star Alliance Gold member and was misadvised at check in regarding upgrading."
Pros: "The crew was exceptionally well trained"
Cons: "It was extremely hot, fully booked, very uncomfortable seats, food was impossible to eat. Being a very frequent flyer for the past 20 years (I spend at least 20 hours flying every month), this was by far the worst flight I ever took"
Cons: "no tv half bathroom broken and really poor management"
Cons: "was not ontime"
Pros: "On time, food, low price, bathrooms well maintained"
Cons: "Isle seat uncomfortable, two prong headsets poor quality causing audio to cut in and out every time make the slightest movement; audio jacks in bad condition and also no option to use my own single jack headphones."
Pros: "Leg room Food"
Cons: "Filthy Seats Broken and Cracked Seats Many video screens not working Seat Choice is only optional Why isn't the plane boarded via zones?"
Pros: "Food crew etc"
Cons: "Seats were pretty bad ..it's almost like sitting on a iron bench , entertaining was not working for lot of them"
Cons: "The seats were the most uncomfortable seats I've ever had on a flight. You could actually feel the bars through the tiny bit of padding. My friend's seat didn't recline. My entertainment center stopped working in the middle of the flight. The flight was filthy. The attendants rarely came around to pick up garbage. My fan and light didn't work. I'll never fly this airline again."
Pros: "Crew was very polite and nice. The entertainment were really good, new up to date movies."
Cons: "Food was not good, the trays were dirty and the blankets as well."
Pros: "Much better crew. No Alliance Air plane this time, so better conditions."
Cons: "Cleaning of plane obviously part of cost-savings, as is poor/old entertainment and poor food quality. Even maintenance is a problem-overhead light did not work and entertainment system did not work well. Though far better than my flight of 2 weeks prior, the flights I've taken from 2008-2015 were much better, making Air India the airline of choice each time then. Now, if Air India is going to be as bad as US or Europe-based airlines, I may as well make price an important consideration."
Cons: "Delays of one hr from Delhi and then delay of 6hrs from Bombay. No food no announcement no person on the counter. Only by mail information first delay of 3 hrs then 2 hrs and then I hr . Passengers had to sit on floor and u can imagine ladies with infants crying. I had this experience before also but thought Modi effect might have worked on Air Infia but?????"
Pros: "We were willing to upgrade our ticket for a fee being a Star Alliance Member only to be told that since an infant was attached to one our tickets it was not possible ! Upgrades were being done as AI was unable to provide us a bassinet for one of the Newborn twins! On boarding the craft realized that there were multiple vacant seats in Business class which were being reserved for the crew to sleep on the flight!"
Cons: "Poor upgrades . Failure to provide bassinet for one of the twins. Also unable to provide upgrades FOR A FEE just so crew members could sleep on the flight! ."
Cons: "Was seated across the toilet food was terrible and the entertainment system was broken ... Headset port was broken ..."
Pros: "Everything was fine, but still it has to be improved a lot"
Pros: "Really ??"
Cons: "Audio did not work on one flight and TV in another Crew disappears after 2 hrs so good luck in any service after 2-3 hrs Seat fabric is filthy Toilets are always in a horrible state"
Cons: "Very bad exp"
Pros: "The food was good."
Cons: "One if the crew dropped juice on me."
Pros: "All flights were on schedule."
Cons: "Audio and video stuff could be better."
Cons: "Rude service , no beverages like juices upon breakfast just tea and coffee , cheap food , no snacks in between meals , very uncomfortable seats , bad tv or headphone -had to hold ear phone into socket till I complete the movie - worse experience ever"
Cons: "My display was not working for17 hour floght and they said we cant do anything and there is no other seat so you have live with it."
Pros: "Crew on the flight were good and provided good service"
Cons: "Crew on the ground was terrible. I was taken to the lounge in a wheelchair in Mumbai after I checked in. But then they forgot to get me for the flight. I almost ended up missing my flight."
Pros: "try to keep family together, improve the quality of food, cleanliness."
Pros: "Left on time from Mumbai Very poor service on the flight"
Cons: "Food was of poor quality Seats were very uncomfortable Overhead light did not work. Delayed by 30 mins"
Pros: "Overall the experience was fine. Air India domestically and to Nepal is so much better than its predecessor Indian Airlines was decades ago. It's night and day. The plane - an A320 - was fine. In-flight staff was professional and did a good job. Food was offered. Nothing much to complain about. Security is taken very seriously and that can be tiresome but the good part is they make a conscientious effort on behalf of your safety and you have to appreciate that."
Cons: "Check-in in Kathmandu is always a mess, no matter the airline. The flight was delayed arriving in Kathmandu and so late leaving from there. Security is very tight in Kathmandu and that added to the delay - understandable but tedious. The food - I was surprised there was any on such a short flight - was a bit too spicy for a Western palate."
