Everything was great

Read more about Singapore Airlines

Everything was great

Would fly no other airline on an 18 hour flight. Exceptional inflight service. Flight took off on time and landed early.

Great airline

The service was outstanding and cabin crew were friendly and approachable. Beverage service was regular throughout the flight, but the quality of the food could have been better, even for Premium Economy.

The staff was great. The food really wasn’t good

Getting off

Cons: "Better movie selection. Better organized boarding in Frankfurt"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed for 25 min and was no information for that. Otherwise everything was good"
Pros: "The crew is usually really good."
Cons: "The ground staff at Frankfurt airport was not very good. Seemed slow lazy and difficult at times"
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Pros: "Very cramped seats"
Pros: "Food, Entertainment."
Cons: "Harder than usually landing"
Pros: "everything..Singapore airlines is a amazing airline !!! there is a reason why they are no 1 for so many years..."
Pros: "Crew amazing. Seat super comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Excellent service"
Pros: "Extra leg room, great service and good food."
Cons: "The entertainment system feels dated (no touch screen) manual rewinding of movies, selection of movies"
Pros: "Lie-flat seats in business class"
Cons: "4 hrs delay due to failure of Singapore Airlines to have a working plane on site at the appointed time. Even worse: chaotic deplaning with one crew member telling passengers to deplane and another yelling at them in the bridge for doing so. A mess of lines trying to get a new boarding pass for a rebooked missed connection—at the front of the line the agent said oh, you need to wait in this other line. Agents had no clue where to direct passengers and gave incorrect directions that necessitated more waiting. No updates to new flight time in the business class lounge. Once the flight was in the air, service was terrible. Attendants would ask for orders, then never bring them or bring the wrong thing."
Cons: "Screaming children. Totally clueless, rude flight crew. Next time kids are screaming for three hours straight on a red eye, maybe offer the parents some assistance. Makes the “perks” like hot towels seem ridiculous when staff are completely indifferent."
Pros: "Great service always smiling, flight on time, overall a great way to fly."
Pros: "Cabin crew was top notch - even in coach they could not be more accommodating and customer friendly. US airline flight attendants don’t even come close to this team that truly serviced the cabin for 8 hours continuously without the typical hiding in the back of the plane and chatting. Very encouraging that genuine care in the air is very much alive and well on Singapore Air! I will fly them every chance I get!"
Cons: "That my flight had to end and I know my next US airline flight won’t come close to this kind of experience! Air travel doesn’t have to be a cattle herding process with peanut treats on cross country flights - shame on the US carriers - I strongly suggest they fly Singapore Air to see what true customer service feels like!"
Pros: "Finally, I could go to my final destination as planned by transmitted to Korean Air flights."
Cons: "My first flight of JetBlue from Olandor to New York was delayed that leading to my connecting flights to my destination were missed. Now, my suitcases have been missed, too."
Pros: "It's not the cheapest way to fly but it's a great way to cross the Atlantic. Seats are big enough for 2, really. Lay flat beds make the night crossing east tolerable. You really can get several hours sleep. The cabin crew is outstanding, patient, and extremely responsive to requests. Two meals served were excellent. Entertainment choices were complete. After a number of flights in Economy on other airlines I'm spoiled by Singapore Airlines and also by Business Class. And their fares seemed much less than others for the JFK to FRA route. Had no idea this level of luxury existed on an airplane."
Cons: "My seat assignment was moved without explanation on our return flight, FRA to JFK. That was disappointing. The gate folks were apologetic but no real explanation given."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "Flight attendants were bot friendly, appearwd to be botheted when askes questions or requests were made."
Pros: "Staff was polite and accommodating"
Pros: "I dropped my scarf and only realized after I was seated. People were still boarding and I told a young man attendant and he found it and brought it to me. And he was such a gentleman too! Wish I knew his name but it was Frankfurt to JFK 835am flight on April 3rd. Thank you again!"
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "Singapore was fine and helpful with a crazy problem JustFly created then didn’t fix."
Cons: "JustFly billed the wrong price, then to fix that,created a new ticket with my name misspelled and failed to cancel the original ticket. We later upgrade seats via Singapore then discovered the duplicate booking and misspelling. To fix that JustFly cancelled the booking with the seat upgrade. Singapore restored our upgrade at the airport but only on one direction so we had to go through it all again."
Pros: "EVERYTHING was great...from check in to the entire experience on board. Extremely friendly staff to delicious food and a great choice of beverages! Clean and tidy aircraft with lots of extra amenities. Pleasant flight, pleasant arrival. Always a great way to travel!"
Cons: ""Customs" at JFK came to an entire halt. All passengers where stuck in the welcome hall for 1h, without any information, why held there and why nothing was moving forward. All CBP booths were closed, but 8 (eight!) employees, who normally direct arriving passengers to the kiosk-machines where hanging out in two groups sharing private stories and having laughs instead of at least informing passengers, what was going on. Lots of passengers where outraged...a couple in their mid 70s in front of us had to sit down on the floor, since they had circulation problems from standing in line so long. Sadly, JFK isn't what it used to be anymore."
Pros: "wide seats. great service. on time."
Cons: "food was not as good as one would expect."
Pros: "That the A380 was only 70%full, resulting in me getting three seats to myself. I was able to stretch out and sleep for most of the flight. Food and service were top notch. Better value than Lufthansa or American, for the overall flight experience. You could fly cheaper, but not better, in economy."
Cons: "Though we landed early at JFK, we had a one hour wait on the tarmac until one of the only two gates capable of receiving an A380 opened up."
Pros: "Friendliness"
Pros: "Ontime, airline stewards were excellent and tv entertainment very good"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Excellent service & comfort"
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Best serves ever will fly every time"
Pros: "Love the service at Singapore Air. Very attentive and accommodating."
Cons: "Security at Frankfurt airport was horribly slow. Also, audio jack didn't work properly. Not sure how often that's checked."
Cons: "They reschudle my flight beaucase I have anxiety. It's my birthday today. I'm suppose to be in China celebrating me and my grandma's birthday right now. Apparently anxiety is something that Singapore airline are very concerned about me, that needs a doctor note to prove that I'm okey to fly. poor coummcation skill and power play"
Pros: "I got in some exercise during the delays and gate changes"
Cons: "Delay after delay, gate changes, lack of care from employees, missed a day of vacation in Germany, missed out on photos and memories"
Cons: "Extremely cramped flight in regular Economy."
Pros: "The crew, the food and the comfort was fantastic. I was in economy and even with a full flight I was still comfortable."
Cons: "It would have been nice if wifi was free considering it was such a long flight"
Pros: "Crew was attentive and nice."
Cons: "Cabin was beat up and worn out."
Pros: "everything great, every time again"
Pros: "The meals were great, the seats very comfortable, the entertainment system very good as well."
Cons: "The Internet was very expensive and very little. I was disappointed, and had to ask 3 times to different attendants to help me set it up. They were not acquainted with the process at all."
Pros: "The flight experience was pretty great overall.."
Cons: "I didn't like that interacting with their websitewas not very iser friendly or reliable. While most domestic airlines allow you to easuly interact with your itinerary I pretty much had to just show up and hope everything worked out. Also no alerts or other functions."
Pros: "The food was great!"
Cons: "The announcements coming from the boarding crew were not clear or hardly under stable."
Pros: "Everything, got to love how smooth those A380s are, plus the service and food is impeccable. Also so much entertainment!"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "This was the second time that we were able to fly to Germany with Singapore airline. I will always try to fly with them in the future. I have been on numerous transcontinental trips and I rank them as number one. They make me feel like I am welcome."
Cons: "There was very little leg room for people over five feet tall. Everything else was exceptional."
Pros: "Service is good even in economy class."
Cons: "Chairs on the new A380 although more comfortable than the Boeing 777 are still very uncomfortable for sleeping in the economy class. Plane is so big that it takes a while for first and business class to load and unload. Luggage took forever to unload for the same reason."
Pros: "Crew was nice & didn’t wake me (but once or twice squished by me in the aisle without saying “excuse me,” which I found a bit weird). Food was good. Not too many announcements or interruptions."
Cons: "I would prefer more vegetarian options for meals (one of them had only one [chicken] option, & I don’t think it was because they had run out of vegetarian food)."
Pros: "Crew was perfect, seat was great"
Cons: "All is well."
Pros: "Good attention to detail."
Cons: "Seat controls panels need updating. Are also dirty."
Pros: "Nice"
Pros: "Same"
Cons: "Chairs spaces"
Pros: "Good food and service."
Cons: "I am not tall but still had no legroom. Plane configured with too many rows."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Super"
Pros: "Smooth flight. Comfortable chairs for economy. Nothing to complain about."
Cons: "My flight NEVER took place and you have no idea. Shameful! I was hospitalized and I couldn’t flu to Belgrade. I am deeply dissapointed you are not willing to give me my money back. I will NEVER use your service again!"
Pros: "The eggplant/beef dish was the best food I have ever had on an airplane. Staff were pleasant and efficient. Wide range of movies, etc, available"
Pros: "The food was excellent fresh and plentiful. The bathrooms were very clean"
Pros: "everything was perfect"
Cons: "Customer service"
Pros: "Boarding process was smooth"
Cons: "Crew was unfriendly"
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Nothing I can think of"
Pros: "Staff and food. Also great selection of movies"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "It was nice"
Cons: "Food was not that nice"
Cons: "I was first seated next to the two largest people on the plane, a couple. There was hardly room for me in the seat. I had the aisle seat. I asked the flight attendant if I could be reseated and she said the plane was full and there were no open seats. She eventually found me a middle seat in the back of the plane, which was so cramped I could harpy move. For a 10 hours flight, not good. I have gold status on Star Alliance, which got me an upgrade from Bishkek to Istanbul, but didn't help on this flight."
Pros: "The bag with the slippers toothbrush etc"
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "Stop over in Istanbul, flight to US. Had to go again through security with not enough staff, stood around 40min in a messy line with no air-conditioning​ or water to go thorough security again. There were elderly people having to do the same. Later, after landing, there was no parking for the airplane, so after 10 hours flight we we're held for 25 minutes inside the airplane. New regulations will make me reconsider using Turkish​ airline for US bound flights, although it's a great company, unless they find a more comfortable and organized way to do the security check."
Pros: "Service, food and programming"
Cons: "Bathrooms"
Pros: "הכל"
Cons: "שום דבר"
Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "Absolute chaotic experience. Seized all electronic equipment which I anticipated ahead of time and left my iPad home - but they took my camera - which is NOT on the list or a digital device. They had ONE person handling what had to be well over a thousand iPads and laptops. Flight left hours late. NO legroom, Food was horrible and inedible. The entertainment system draped out and locked up 4 hours into a ten hour flight. The WORST flight experience I have had in a very long tie and I have flown all over the world. Will NEVER fly Turkish Air again. STAY AWAY from this airline."
Cons: "No individual air vents to control temperature"
Pros: "amazing !"
Pros: "Attentiveness of staff."
Cons: "The check-in was quite hectic."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "No kosher as ordered"
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "The food tasted great. The crew are very friendly."
Cons: "The seats are kind of small"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Service is very bad"
Pros: "Checking in personal Irem such a rude person who lies to clients. She lied me about checking bag and choosing sit also. I asked her to talk to her supervisor and she show me the girl sitting next to her was doing checking in also name is Bahar. I am 6'1" and 190 lbs and asked for exit row and they both told me all of them gone already. The thing is funny when I asked checking in was just began. After boarding I realized some exit sits are available. As a Turkish man who worked JFK for.Turkish airlines, I think this was awful experience. Turkish airlines and passengers deserve better service and honest employees"
Pros: "Everything worked well. Service, food, entertainment, et all."
Cons: "nothing was amiss."
Pros: "Crew demeanor Cleanliness of the cabin Boarding process"
Cons: "Istanbul Airport facilities Food choices Alcohol selection Changing tkt and customer service"
Pros: "Good flight"
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "My JFK to IST flight on Oct 21st, the plane was nice and new. The seats were comfortable and the entertainment was up to date. The food on this particular flight was good."
Cons: "According to the Turkish Airlines site they offer free accommodations to passengers who have over 10 hr layover in Istanbul if you are an economy passenger. I was under this impression that I would fall under this category because when I initially booked the ticket (JFK - IST - LIS and return LIS - IST - JFK) my layover back to JFK was 18 hours. Two weeks prior to leaving for my trip I received a notification saying that the layover will be extended to 34 hours. Seeing that my layover was extended, I thought that Turkish Airline would offer me accommodation for both nights. When I arrived to IST (10:30pm local time) I went to the Turkish Airline transfer desk in which they said they would not allow me to have the 2 nights accommodation. After about an hour and half of discussion they could only offer me one night accommodation and changed my flight to an earlier flight. The attendant who was serving me told me to wait by the kiosk until my name was called. At the 30 minute mark I tried to ask another kiosk attendant to see what the status was and he replied back in a very rude manner saying he has no idea what I'm referring to and that essentially was not his problem. After another hour and half of waiting and seeing other frustrated passengers going to the transfer desk and not being helped, I went on the queue to see what the status of my ticket was. They finally gave me my ticket and at this point it was close to 1am. Thankfully I did research before hand and under the assumption that I was going to spend a day in Istanbul, spent $20 and got a Turkish visa prior to my travel, which according the the turkish consulate website that you can no longer get a visa while in the airport. I finally reached the airport hotel at 2:30am but the airport shuttle was to arrive in 4 hours to shuttle all the passengers back. So not only did I deal with a rude staff, but I paid $20 to be in Turkey for about 4 hours in an airport hotel."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Check in late, rude staff, bad food"
Pros: "x"
Cons: "x"
Pros: "Good price and great food"
Cons: "Best Price. Plus no-nonsense pricing from Kayak. Food is great."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth enough and the flight seemed fast considering."
Cons: "My seat tv and headphones did not work, and I had to ask several times for assistance. They ran out of the food I could eat, and there was a child kicking the seat behind me 70% of the 11 hour flight. My seat was broken and would not stay reclined. The flight attendants were not attentive. I pressed the button a few times (to get assistance with the broken items, and no one came. The 11hour flight was more like being in a shopping mall for 11 hours, people getting up and walking everywhere, talking in the aisles-I understand the children crying-but kicking other peopmes seats is unacceptable and the flight staff should address that if their training allows."
Cons: "Late baggage"
Pros: "evrting"
Cons: "My luggage did not make it to my destination with me. I waited an hour by the luggage carousel until I saw someone that informed me that one of my suitcases did not make it onto the flight. I had to wait until the next day for it to be delivered. While I am glad it was delivered to my residence, I am frustrated for the inconvenience."
Pros: "Good in general"
Cons: "Delayed flights"
Pros: "Movies!"
Cons: "Crew need to smile a bit. And even if you don't choose the food in advance, there should be vegetarian option."
Pros: "Turkish Air flight from Istanbul to NYC was fine but Turkish Air flight leaving Tashkent 8:15 am to Istanbul, May 29, was terrible. Although we had all been up from 5am to get to early morning flight and Tashkent air port has no services, stewardess ran out of coffee and repeatedly refused to get me, the person skipped, coffee, despite repeated requests for a first cup. Each time they refilled coffee, they started run from beginning of plane, and ran out by the time they got to the middle. Usually if someone gets skipped, they just go back and get a single cup, but this lady was determined not to. Never had this happen in 55 years of flying. Serious caffine deficiency."
Pros: "crew members"
Cons: "late hours"
Pros: "The food was very good; crew very nice. I'd recommend this airline."
Pros: "I really like the crew on Lufthansa"
Cons: "Our pre paid seats were lost in the "system" even though I had the receipt they couldn't do anything. and we were seated in a back row with offset tvs, the movie selection is lame and dated"
Pros: "It was cancelled and scheduled next day"
Pros: "Nice crew and comfortable seats."
Cons: "Not a fan of the sandwich provided."
Pros: "Lufthansa service from JFK-FRA-FCO-FRA-JFK was gracious, efficient and altogether pleasurable."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Bought the premium economy on Lufthansa, but ended up on Eurowings. Food same as Economy, 1/2 the entertainment choices. Definitely not worth the money."
Pros: "Comfy flight and early arrival."
Cons: "Had to run to catch the connecting flight"
Pros: "everything was great. Crew was very nice. good service. good food. Even bathrooms were located in the basement separately, nice and bigger than usual airline bathrooms."
Cons: "my TV screen didn't work. Long 9.5hr trip without entertainment."
Pros: "Flight arrived early."
Cons: "Last two transatlantic flights have been hot. What happened to a nice cool flight and using the blanket if you are cold?"
Pros: "Superb seats. Wide, enough length to strech the legs. Good entertainment - overall - loved it!"
Cons: "Food could be a bit tastier ..."
Pros: "Attentive and friendly staff, great food and plenty of drinks!!!"
Pros: "Great crew and plane"
Cons: "Inconvenient terminal from connecting flight. Boarding procedure was a zoo"
Pros: "Everything was perfect. crew was really good. nice and comfortable airplane (Airbus A380)..very smooth ride. A+"
Cons: "nothing wrong"
Pros: "service, on time,efficient boarding, no hassles"
Pros: "Relaxed trip. We were well cared for. Again very good staff"
Pros: "Family check-in in Frankfurt is superb. Economy Plus was a really great experience!"
Cons: "The fact that I can't use my own headphones and I'm forced to use the cheap airline-provided ones (with the dual plugs). Single biggest reason to not fly Lufthansa, because I can't enjoy the movies!"
Cons: "See previous comment. Airline service needs to be vastly improved."
Pros: "All around service"
Cons: "That I had to get off of the plane."
Pros: "The service."
Pros: "Excellent service and comfortable flight for a great price! The US carriers cannot compete with Lufthansa or any European airlines as a matter of fact."
Cons: "Touchscreen of the entertainment system was not very sensitive and had false readings. Annoying but not critical."
Pros: "Complementary Drinks. Beautiful Flight Attendants."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Tv didn't work most of time. Food was terrible."
Cons: "Delay of over 40 minutes and very dysfunctional entertainment system. Poor plan for connecting flights. We had to run to catch up the connecting flight. Very unpleasant experience"
Pros: "wasn't Lufthansa it was actually Singapore airlines they changed my flight and it was very good"
Cons: "It was very good"
Pros: "I was able to squeeze back into Comfort Economy and make my destination, after a messed up miles upgrade - have to be grateful for the small things, right?"
Cons: "I was actually upgraded to Business Class through a LH miles award, however, that upgrade was not honored, despite the fact that I had a confirmation email from them. I had to first get to Frankfurt to even negotiate this problem. At the departure point, LH was unable to furnish me a boarding pass to my NY flight. After racing though the huge airport at max speed to make this connection, I was treated rudely at the gate in Frankfurt by LH short tempered ground staff, to the point of even being accused of being the source of the problem and being late for boarding (when I was only accorded an hour connection through this booking, and raised this concern with LH prior). Lastly, the ground crew took away my connecting flight boarding pass and nearly forgot to give me back my luggage tag. The flight crew was Ok, but just did a bare minimum to keep up with the packed and overbooked flight. To top of the joy, I got food poisoning after landing in NYC - not all food they serve was in sealed containers, and it must have been enough to cause a day of misery that followed my arrival - I can assure you that the late time and taxing and docking delays in NYC took away any opportunity to have a normal dinner, and LH food was all I had all day... Not the usual LH experience, but I may give them a break for the next few trips."
Pros: "Friendly staff, good food, free wine, comfy (as can be expected) seats AND AMAZING LANDING into Munich. OH! Good movie selection too!"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Great crew very attentive."
Cons: "Plane was old. Toilets were an issue. Entertainment centers were slow. Time to retire the, 747's"
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "The seats"
Pros: "The whole experience was GREAT!"
Cons: "Boarding was a little chaotic. Everyone kind of ran up."
Pros: "everything"
Cons: "none"
Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "The plane left without us and we were still in the air. They shut down the airport in Frankfurt so we couldn't take off at our destination and when they allowed us to fly into Frankfurt, Lufthansa didn't wait and hundreds of people were stranded from different areas because of the closed airport to all flights. We waited 5 hours to rebook a destination back to the USA and traveling lasted 24hours. Right now I'm not sure if I'll be refunded my tickets for thedomestic airline flight. WE will NEVER want to fly out of Frankfurt and especially with Lufthansa. I have to say the people at the service counters were very nice and helpful but it took 5 hours to get serviced and were missed 2 possible connecting flights. Lufthansa was a good airline but that was 20 years ago. The airport is too big now has too many delays so I'll avoid it at all cost."
Cons: "The service provided by the crew was okay but their attitudes were horrible. It seems as though they did not want to work."
Pros: "The flight staff was excellent!"
Pros: "Great airplane seats in Prem. Economy."
Cons: "Information access to cancelled flights was horrible. Impossible to get assistance."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They cancelled my flight and I spent 7-8 hours on phone trying to resolve."
Pros: "Great leg room for economy class, polite and courteous staff"
Pros: "Almost everything, the flight crew was friendly and timely, the movie selection was great, the flight left on time and arrived early."
Cons: "The temperature near my seat was very uncomfortable, to the point where I was sweating for most of my ride. The passenger next to me, also complained to me as well."
Pros: "The seats were fairly comfortable"
Cons: "Service has really gone downhill the past year or two. Drink service was infrequent, and they ran out of food options; I was stuck with a kosher meal that tasted terrible."
Pros: "Pleasantly greeted"
Cons: "Lack of space makes flying pure torture. When will airrlines get it regarding customer needs?! Crew not accessible in between serving times"
Pros: "the staff is top notch"
Pros: "The crew was very efficient and accommodating"
Cons: "Most of the announcements were hard to hear and understand"
Pros: "As I noted above, both LH crews worked well. They were very professional, spoke languages as needed, accommodated passengers' requests, served edible food (mostly) and were visible and available throughout. The long-distance Airbus plane was comfortable enough. I like the idea of putting all the bathrooms downstairs ... but ..."
Cons: "... putting all the bathrooms downstairs might create difficulties for handicapped passengers. I am not sure how this is handled; perhaps help is provided, or perhaps there is one bathroom at flight-level."
Cons: "My tv screen stopped responding 6 hours into the flight so that I could not watch it for the remaining 2.5 hours"
Cons: "The only suggestion I would have is that the entertainment options could be a bit more updated. The movie selection was not as good as I have experienced it on other flights (--- other airlines have a better 'new release' selection)."
Pros: "There was a particular flight attendant who went above and beyond to make our flight amazing!!"
Pros: "I liked food, entertainment on board, atmosphere, professional crew, arrival on time"
Pros: "The entertainment was great, service, comfort and food too."
Cons: "Choice of quality films could have been better."
Pros: "The crew was perfect - nice and very helpful. I like the restroom area on this plane much better than on other kinds of aircraft."
Cons: "I definitely didn't like how Lufthansa online booking assigns seats. Why are family members who booked their tickets as one order getting seats apart from each other even after online check-in and seat selection? We had a very bad experience with this."
Cons: "Gate agents could be more friendly."
Pros: "The food was great and the screw were nice and young ."
Cons: "The boarding process and charging 95 dollars for an extra bag is crazy."
Pros: "Everything was excellent as per all my flights with Tap Portugal. The crew was outstanding, the plane was clean, food was tasty and overall a very comfortable flight!"
Cons: "The boarding area was too cramped and tight."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "crew was so very helpful. Food was surprisingly good"
Pros: "unexpectedly comfortable seat on this particular flight, unlike my previous flights to/from USA"
Pros: "Overall, the flight was good. Seats on the international flight could have been a bit more comfortable. Entertainment was available and satisfying. The meals were good. Crew was nice."
Pros: "The price for Businesses Class was very affordable, wine & food was good, also received a charmingly designed toiletries kit to top it off. Crew all helpful."
Cons: "We were delayed and sat on runway for 45mins, they did however turn on the entertainment screens and announcement was made to inform us about it."
Pros: "Nice and easy. Very uncomplicated."
Cons: "n/a"
Pros: "Food was good, many options with entertainment"
Cons: "The person making announcements mumbled and spoke too softly for someone who's announcing things on a flight. We couldn't understand half of everything being said. Also both flights departed late even though TAP reported them as "on time." We sat at the gate for almost an hour before departing with announcements at that time solely in a Portuguese - on a flight going to New York."
Pros: "Easy smooth transaction"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Entertainment and seat space were great."
Cons: "They somehow managed to lose the entire flights luggage"
Cons: "TAP Airlines stranded us in Lisbon. They were late flying us from Vienna to Lisbon and then canceled our seats on our connection to JFK. Instead, they rebooked us on the next day's flight a full 24 hours after, refusing to rebook us on earlier flights on other carriers. Their customer service was as bad as I've ever experienced. Multiple agents admitted their company is terrible and doesn't care about its customers. The indifference to our situation was surreal. Lesson learned."
Cons: "We were never prompted to pay for our check in baggage at the time of purchase and so when we showed up we were forced to pay 85 euros for one checked bag for an international flight on top of a ticket that already cost more than $250. The luggage restrictions were never shown previously. Will never fly TAP Portugal again."
Cons: "Boarding gate too small. Suoer overcrowded"
Cons: "Two TAP flights today. Both flights delayed more than an hour."
Cons: "Lost luggage. Late arrival. Had to run."
Pros: "Good food. More or less on time."
Cons: "No electrical outlets."
Cons: "They charge $100 to check a bag. Never again."
Pros: "business class was great seat comfortable the lounge was very nice"
Cons: "Food on plane ok wish had more choices"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew. Great food."
Cons: "Tap said that they could not find my seat (even through I paid Kayak / Webjet) and my tickets were cancelled. I lost my flight back and had to stay two days extra in a hotel and lost a day of work. Will never buy here again"
Pros: "The flight was uneventful."
Cons: "The food was edible. The entertainment display was old. Not much leg room."
Cons: "No USB port"
Cons: "There is only one unusual thing - the flight attendant was poking me to ask if I wanted food as I was clearly asleep and did not want to be bothered. There were still 90 minutes left till landing. Awkward and unnecessary and why in the world would she do that? Let people rest, please. :-)"
Pros: "Flight was on time and landed safely."
Cons: "Boarding was quite chaotic. Seats were very cramped."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Some delays at the airport but service is excellent."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Seats, food, no internet, no wifi no USB outlet Besically it's old time flight"
Pros: "The trip back home to NY from Lisbon was great, flight staff was attentive and courteous, the plane was clean, the entertainment made the time go by fast and the warm blanket and pillow provided a comfortable experience."
Cons: "Unfortunately my girlfriend is a celiac and we forgot to pre-order a gluten free meal, so she had little to no food options for her to eat. The sandwich offered right before landing could be made with gluten free bread or even a corn based tortilla."
Pros: "Good entertainment system"
Cons: "Flight crew could have been more polite"
Pros: "The food dish was pretty good and there were many options for food."
Cons: "Space - there was zero and we weren't able to upgrade our seats. Big bummer on a long flight!! Also, our flight attendent would give us half full glasses of water... I didn't realize I needed to buy a few bottles of water before getting on the flight to be stocked. She sid this with all beverages. There was zero organization in the boarding process."
Cons: "Some not so friendly crew members on this flight. There was one tall, blonde flight attendant who wore so much perfume that I could taste it every time she walked down the aisle. You can't have that in an enclosed space. In this day and age of so many people having food allergies to nuts, why would you serve a dessert with almonds?? My daughter almost ate it because there was no warning label. It scares me to think what might have happened at 12,000 feet."
Pros: "The food and air conditioning"
Cons: "I purposely got a seat in the front row for extra leg room next to my two friends whose tickets I paid for. The TV in my seat was broken and I therefore could not at all watch TV unless I moved to another seat. I ended up not being able to sit with my friends for the entire seven-hour flight. The flight was delayed multiple times. The first time it was delayed because they were doing an extra security search by hand in the Gated area awaiting to board the plane. I have never seen this in my life and it was definitely started. Then we were on board the plane for almost an hour before they made an announcement that they found a broken part on the plane and had to switch planes. It was all very fishy. Quite frankly that I want my money back."
Cons: "The movies could have been better. Food was average."
Pros: "Seats were big and comfortable with lots of leg room."
Cons: "No entertainment on first 3 hr intra-Europe flight. Food was not good."
Pros: "Great service on board, very attentive crew. Great food (Yes, it was good), modern aircraft."
Cons: "The boarding process at Terminal could be easier and simpler. They told us to set up lines way before the actual call."
Cons: "Flight left without us"
Cons: "Poor policy regarding musical instrument. Probably the only company asking to pay a special fee on hold or to buy an extra seat for a regular guitar. Ridiculous."
Cons: "TAP is the worst. I"d rather walk than book a flight with them."
Pros: "Andrera Araijo was extremely friendly, attentive and energetic. She smiled through out the entire flight. Whether she was attending to me or a fellow passenger it was all smiles. She definitely made smile. God bless you Andrera!"
Pros: "decent selection of movies and the tablet was nice to watch them on"
Cons: "Despite booking a vegetarian meal none was available."
Pros: "Lots of leg room, seats recline nicely, the flight was not full so there was room to move. AC power under the seats, plus an USB charger in every seat"
Cons: "The seats, just were not comfortable enough for that long of a flight."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Check in desk people in Lisbon were very obnoxious and rude."
Pros: "Clean planes. Reasonably comfortable seats."
Cons: "Boarding process with passport control in Lisbon seemed redundant. The transfer concourse doesn't allow access to VIP lounges."
Pros: "Incredible experience!!! Best airline ever I have flown on!!"
Cons: "Only complaint was group lines should have been established before boarding began. Everyone was in a large group before they told us where to line up and then it was too late But once we were on the plane it was an amazing flight experience!!! The comfort was unparalleled to other airlines I have flown on. Thank you so much!!!"
Pros: "Great planes. Very professional and helpful staff. Lots of leg room"
Cons: "Lobster appetizer was dry, hard, and tough. Steak dinner was prepared nicely, but of medium- low quality meat. Announcements are not heard in headphones, which in emergency situations could be dangerous. Noise reducing headphones supplier are effective in the noise reduction function, but not high quality audio resolution, with some dialogue intelligible. Business class seat wasn't a full recline as are those of most competitors, but it was comfortable. I didn't see any snack offerings that most other airlines have available between meals."
Pros: "The captain and the crew were excellent."
Cons: "Upgrade the entertainment system."
Pros: "Big space between seats. Best screen entertainment."
Cons: "Food was only average. Especially fish."
Pros: "Comfortable plane, pleasent stewardesses, good tv's/entertainment options."
Cons: "We flew out of Rome. Management at Rome airport told us their emplyee(s) were drunk! Unsafe flight! NEVER USE THIS AIRLINE- YOURE PUTTING YOUR LIFE AT RISK!"
Cons: "Being sat in a middle seat. With that being said, it was OK. No problems."

Business class on Lufthansa never disappoints!

Want to give kudos to the flight attendants on board. They were friendly, good natured and went out of their way to keep us happy.

All my luggage missing still have not received it

Food quality was okay but I asked for chicken & was told there is none left. One of the two crew assigned (Ray) was short on etiquette even when it seemed she should have several years experience.

Enjoyed it

my seat in the exit row was very cold. 20A

Flight was great but we were delayed because they didn’t have enough room for carry on luggage.

I understand the economics behind seating on aircraft. United A/L seats are terrible uncomfortable and seating pitch was / is very uncomfortable. I understand there is not much you can do at this point manufacturing is complete, but flying United is very uncomfortable. Mike

Incredible crew!

Not sure why we left 50 min late after together boarded the plane ….. we taxied around for 35 min ans SFO isn’t that big

Pros: "Crew was excellent seat was as usual"
Cons: "Something to Fill your tome a little more"
Cons: "For being a red-eye flight, it was very annoying to have some of the crew members in the back carrying on and laughing very very loudly."
Pros: "They smiled, gave a friendly farewell, made sure everyone was hydrated."
Cons: "Don't get an attitude with calm passengers asking for assistance for their seatmates. Sometimes they wouldn't ask me what I wanted to eat or drink, they just assumed I already heard them ask other passengers and just waited for me to answer. It just seems lazy to me."
Pros: "Crew was really friendly."
Cons: "Seats are not very comfortable. The standard has decreased: leg room is reduced, and options to gain 1 or 2” of legroom, is so pricey that it feels like ‘highway robbery ‘."
Pros: "Crew was amazing seat are good from Denver to Cincinnati But from Edmonton to Denver seat were tight"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Dirty seat, broken screen & headphone socket."
Pros: "Quick boarding and on time take off"
Cons: "The new fare basic coach doesnt allow carry ons even for money! I had to check my carry on for $30, unlocked with all my medication and valuables. I had NO idea I couldn't take a small carry on. That's insane. Worse than Spirit, which is not saying much. At least you can pay for a carry on with Spirit. They forced me to check my unlocked bag. United used to be one of my favorites. Its lower than Spirit now. Beware!"
Pros: "Large plane, quiet ride."
Cons: "Staff was rude to my wife and very useless. Our bags were dropped off together, but only one made it home. We still don’t have the missing luggage."
Pros: "All fine except entertainment"
Cons: "Entertainment didn’t work."
Pros: "The flight was listed as a 50 minute flight. The boarding was great, and very fast and efficient, but there was news that Air Force One was scheduled to land at our destination, so the flight left a bit early. Upon reaching altitude, the plane made record time. 50 minutes was cut down to under 30 from take-off to landing. The attendant was barely on the last row (a charter plane) from serving drinks, before the cart had to be put away for landing."
Cons: "The seats were tiny and my neighbor and I were both a bit taller and stockier than perhaps an average passenger (220lbs)."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Service was terrible, no blanket onboard, wifi was broken, cabin temperature was way too low, feels like around 55f."
Pros: "Our family was able to sit together"
Cons: "The flight left late It arrived late and we sat out away from the gate for 15-20 minutes before getting up to the gate to deplane."
Cons: "Plane was delayed.. Rude customers"
Pros: "When I travel economy I have come to expect indifferent tolerance by the flight crew. I come as self contained as possible and lay low. This crew was honestly different! At check in I requested a emergency row or bulkhead seat. I wasn't entitled or hold status with United but it never hurts to ask. What was not surprising was that I was denied as the flight was full and there were FF status fliers in the wait list already. What did surprise me was the sincere courtesy with which the agent handled my request and delivered the "bad" news. Small thing, but I noticed. Once on the flight in the back of the plane the complementary food and beverage items were meager, as expected, but the flight attendants service we generous! I was offered a full can of diet coke because I said I was thirsty... a full can. Again small but noticed. I couldn't reach my ear phones and the attendant found a pair in upper class and brought it to me without attitude. Later in the flight when another customer asked for a headphone the flight crew announced on the speakers that if anyone had an extra pair, would the be kind enough to share. I had mine in the overheard and was able to "pay it forward" by returning the ones she had provided me earlier. the WiFi on the plane wasn't operating properly. The attendants tried sever times to trouble shoot it and then offered me information on a refund and another diet coke in apology. Not a million dollars, but it showed me I mattered as their customer and they cared about the airline. It was what flying was like "back in the day" a nice experience."
Cons: "WiFi didn't work on either portion of my trip."
Pros: "Newark Airport is great and the flight was comfortable"
Pros: "Pilot candor"
Cons: "In flight service"
Pros: "I didnt care for anything"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours. There were no chargers at any seat in Coach."
Cons: "Tiniest, tightest seating ever - claustrophobic"
Pros: "Very nice crew who were attentive and friendly."
Cons: "Waiting 5 hours for this flight, after a very long overseas flight just about did me in. Wish they had more than one or two flights a day from Denver to Spokane."
Pros: "Nice food, good crew"
Pros: "The flight left on time and landed on time."
Cons: "The asian mix cracker pak was horrible. Seats cramped and uncomfortable. Plane loud inside and cold."
Pros: "Superb crew With lights dimmed steward found me and brought me a drink Just a mention about how I would like one during routine service I felt got special service but they probably do that for everyone Very nice Felt crew went out of their way to make sure all nerds taken care of!"
Cons: "Baggage claim in different terminal than where we landed No signage"
Pros: "Onboard service"
Cons: "The fact that we had to pay extra in order to have room to Cross our legs."
Pros: "Seeing as we were flying with ANA instead of United, everything was excellent, especially the crew. The food was amazing."
Cons: "there was absolutely no notfication that we were flying with ANA! I understand the flight was booked with united and you guys are part of the star partnership thing or whatever but it made finding out where to check in very stressful and time consuming! Stop overbooking your flights!"
Cons: "The plane was delayed again n again from ,7:30 pm to 11:45pm"
Pros: "The plane seats were comfortable and I liked the entertainment offered."
Cons: "Crying babies."
Pros: "Well, at least they gave me a blanket to sleep with."
Cons: "You still have to pay to use tv, movies, and internet. The flight attendants did not give me any drink or snacks. They did not say goodbye or wish me a good time back home. Flying in the plane itself was awful, as it continuously shook even when weather was alright. The pilot seemed rude. No warnings from the pilot when we were going through bad weather - just a surprise "HANG ON" as the plane would shake in a frenzy. The chairs were also incredibly uncomfortable and very hard to relax on. I couldnt even sleep well, and it was an overnight trip. Seriously felt so disrespected by the crew and the company, and this experience was the same with all 4 flights I took (to portland and back). I will never again choose United."
Cons: "Seating was extremely uncomfortable.The seats were to straight"
Pros: "Everything went very smooth except for the turbulence on the last leg home. Other then that everything was awesome. Loved it. I'll fly United again"
Cons: "That I couldn't get internet without having to pay. I'm sure I was doing something wrong thou"
Pros: "Timely Clean"
Cons: "Too much carry-on luggage slow loading and exiting of the airplane"
Cons: "PA system delayed the flight to cancellation. Waited all day until they said we should consider switching our flights. Missed our connector. Had to red eye in to an entirely different location and drive straight to work because the mess. Awful."
Pros: "Flight left on rime."
Cons: "Flight diverted to Austin TX due to weather. Flight crew gave us bad info as we were waiting to get fueled to get to Houston. Upon arrival in Houston only one United rep to help 50 + people. Tempers got hot. All flights to Corpus were over booked so rep said to sleep in airport and take first flight out in the morning. Not! I just got my luggage, rented a car and drove home. Not a good experience overall even I know it was the weather that caused it."
Pros: "Excelent services and good customer services"
Cons: "It was very crowded"
Pros: "We left nearly on time, arrived on time and had a pleasant comfortable flight. I went to sleep early and skipped the food and drink, so I cannot comment on this aspect of the flight."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "They have a snack and a drink on such a short flight."
Cons: "No leg room or entertainment. Receiving baggage after the flight took 15 min (carry-on baggage)"
Cons: "always delay!!"
Cons: "The coach seats don't recline enough to allow for sleeping. your head just falls down and you wake up because of not enough incline."
Pros: "Lots of turbulence"
Pros: "The boarding process was excellent and the crew was very carismatic, nice."
Cons: "How the pilot end the flight. The lights were on and I could not sleep at all."
