Either just 1 line, or if 2 lines, should ask which line come first"
Pros: "People the staff was nice and tried to be helpful"

Pros: "Singapore airlines never disappoints"
Cons: "Everything. Singapore Airlines had a great reputation. Imagine my disappointment. It was a horrible flight. The crew was nice enough, but inattentive. The food, if such a term may be applied here, was inedible. Just vile. In flight entertainment was a complete joke. Boarding was awful, but it always is. Seats were extremely uncomfortable. This racket is the ultimate way to rip somebody off of $1000. Horrible."
Pros: "The inflight entertainment was great, lots of movie selections"
Cons: "The leg room was horrible. Honestly the worst space I've ever had in a flight. I was shocked considering Singapore air is considered one of the best airlines"

Pros: "Short flight"

Pros: "Very good service! Lots of flight attendants and they were kind the flight was long, but mostly smooth. The entertainment was good and there was a lot of it."
Cons: "The flight map was a mess. It either said we had 115 hours of flying time or 3.5 hours. Also, it showed the plane pointing in the opposite direction that we were flying in. A minor issue, but weird."
Pros: "I like the personal TV, my foot rest and water holder frequent water serve,"
Cons: "For me coffee is too strong, and I like the food on the way to Tokyo better than on the way back to LA"
Pros: "Great service. Really friendly and polite. Lots of current movies and TV shows to watch and provided earbuds with adaptors. Made the experience a lot more pleasant."
Cons: "The seats can be laid bag pretty far and the people in front of me decided to recline for a majority of the 10 hour flight. I wish the chairs either didn't do this or the flight attendants would have said something. I didn't feel like I had the authority to do anything about it. Also it was so warm! I have no idea if there was a fan."
Pros: "I paid for an economy class ticket but got first class service."
Cons: "My Vegan meal was terrible."
Pros: "Clean aircraft. First rate and very attentive cabin staff. High Quality food and mid flight snacks. Its clear a lot of thought has gone into the making and running of this airline. My first experience and quite frankly I will fly SIA whenever possible."

Pros: "The service and fast flight"
Pros: "the crews were very polite and very helpful"
Pros: "Ease of checking. Empty seat between us"
Cons: "Can't upgrade with krisflyer miles"
Pros: "The aircraft was clean, new, spacious and quiet. The bathrooms were regularly maintained. The food quality, selection and quantity was excellent for the economy class. Even the serving utensils were solid metal and had a very high quality feel to it. Having an endless supply of mid flight snacks was also appreciatd I always like the warm wet towels, which were offered at take off and landing. The entertainment choices were endless, but because it had USB and regular power, I was able to work on my laptop and listen to my podcasts on phone without worrying about running out of battery."
Cons: "The crew lacked its usual pep and cheer. For some reason they seemed very introverted and tired. First time on Singapore Airline that I noticed. The amenities kit was a bit on the cheap side. Also, only the supplied two prong headphones could be used with the entertainment system, I would have preferred an option to use my high end ones -- this was the main reason I chose to just work and listen to my own music/podcasts instead of watching a movie. We boarded and disembarked through the business sections and the aisles were too narrow. The announcements were hard to hear and the temperature was set too low for half of the flight (to kept fluctuating requiring constant adjustment of blanket/jacket). Having said that will keep flying them."
Pros: "Touch screen entertainment system with great variety of programs. Good food, clean cabin, friendly crews. I'd fly again on Singapore Air over other domestic airlines and Japanese airlines."
Cons: "Sound quality of ear buds was not good. No issues if you travel with your own."
Pros: "The service in coach was very impressive! The flight attendants could not be more attentive! I can only imagine how it would be in business or first class."
Pros: "Made Econ class feel like biz :)"
Pros: "The best long leg flight I've been on. I managed to get a whole row to myself and that made the 12hr flight so much better. The crew was very professional, kind, attentive, and it was grand."

Pros: "Huge selection of movies Towel service, socks, and toothbrush for economy class Snacks included entire chocolate bars! Friendly staff"
Pros: "Almost everything"

Pros: "Everything in this flight is very good. Next traveling time I will consider this airline first!!"
Cons: "old facilities"
Pros: "Singapore airlines was also great and I very much enjoyed that flight even though it was 10 or more hours. The good was great and same for the entertainment . The whole flight was very pleasant . Also I loved the steamed towels that was something i haven't had on a flight before ."
Pros: "The stewardesses were extremely professional- attentive & pleasant. The toilet was well equipped. There was no delay in taking off Boarding was orderly & efficient & quick and so was disembarking. The snacks were nice- ice cream, apples, chops, sandwiches. Many other airlines don't even provide snacks on these long flights. The seats in wconomy were roomy & confortable."
Cons: "I can't think of anything that was bad but I didn't enjoy the breakfast. I would have preferred an American breakfast. It was a mixture of shrimp, potato & brocolli. Ivwould have pregerred a criossant & yogurt to the tiramisu & roll."
Pros: "The flight attendants were super attentive and took great care of me, even bringing me headache medicine."
Cons: "I was in a front row seat which meant using my table in the armrest would wake up my neighbor. (Not a big deal but a little awkward) It was also hard to sleep because the seats didn't recline enough."
Pros: "It was the best service ive ever had. The flight attendants came right away and were always coming up the aisle making sure we eye well hydrated and fed"
Pros: "The flight staff were very friendly and always seemed to be eager to help all the passengers. The menu on the flight was also excellent. Wonderful flight"

Cons: "I tried to check in online a day before the flight as per email advisory but most of the seats were blocked already and whatever seats left open were only a few and those were tbe ones in the middle or the ones that you need to pay additional. so I decided to check in at the airport but their staff didn’t help much. They still gave us seats away from each other even if I explained that we have some health issues that’s why we need to stay together."
Cons: "i had a surfboard bag that weighed 11lbs and my daughter had a surfboard bag that weighed 21 lbs and we are being charged $200 each both ways for a total charge of $800 round trip. This is an outragous fee for surfboard and other airlines specificly Alaskian Air, Quanties, and Virgin Australia have been letting us travel with surfboard bags for free that weight 3 times that much. I will never take Cathay Pacific again as we paid more for these flights because we had heard they do not charge for surfboard and they have great service. I had a total of $1200 fspending money for food and transportation for my trip to Bali. That leaves me with $400. Never again will I travel with Cathay Pacific and I will be spreading the word through social Media! Not a Happy Customer!!!"
Pros: "The crew was totally professional, the food was good, but the passengers were horrible, which is not Cathay Pacific’s fault."
Cons: "The American films were good but they could be better."
Pros: "Nothing really. I am not gonna fly Cathay next time. Would like to have a wifi."
Cons: "The FA, no WI-Fi for a 15 hr trip."
Cons: "I remember Cathay pacific having nice planes, but I guess things have changed. Plane, bathrooms, everything was downright dirty. Basically the only thing Cathay Pacific has going for it is direct LAX to HK, but that's it. I will try to avoid Cathay in the future"
Pros: "The entertainment is in regards to the movie choices that I had. I wish my screen was a little bigger."
Cons: "My flight from Los Angeles to Hong Kong was cancelled due to a problem with the plane. I stood in line for 2 and a half hours at the airport only to have them tell me this. There was not visible sense of urgency on part of the staff at Cathay Pacific and they did not seem to have a contingency plan to deal with such a situation. I especially felt sorry for some of the elderly people who were also in line all that time with noting to drink and no place to sit."
Pros: "Cathy service"
Pros: "Everyone is kind!"
Cons: "Seat didn't recline"
Cons: "It was operated by an alliance air company but I bought thru American Airlines, I even didn't know that was a coshare because I started the first leg with American, once it got cancelled they said that they couldn't do anything, and the other company said that the ticked was issued by American, nightmare. BTW I'm a Platinium member of American Airlines, what thy should at least give a little attention since I fly every month."

Cons: "hong kong lkayover"
Cons: "Upon arrival in Hong Kong, Cathay representatives automatically re-booked my connecting flight to Taipei assuming I would miss the connection. This was not the case.

Pros: "hospitality is very good.comfortable journey."
Pros: "All as expected - no surprises"

Cons: "Service could be a bit more friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Ran out of several food and beverage options."
Cons: "This plane was a little old, and therefore the entertainment system was a little dated. Other than that, great flight!"
Pros: "Cathay Pacific always seems to have top cabin personnel. They are very attentive and really seem to try to meet your needs, more so than the crews of other airlines. Flying is not a particularly fun experience, but Cathay does its best. It's a bit hit and miss with the food, but this time my special request meals (Asian vegetarian) were pretty good."
Cons: "These 777's have really crappy legroom. A330's are much more comfortable (well, Airbus in general)."
Cons: "The attendants could have been more hospitable"
Cons: "2,5 hours delayed. Econ seats are tiny with zero legroom."
Pros: "Fair space"
Cons: "Head steward with an attitude"

My wife and I were assigned two middle seats in two separate rows. 4. We were forced to check in our cabin baggage saying that there was lack of overhead space, but when we boarded among last passengers, there were a number of empty overhead bins. We could easily have saved 45 minutes in Toronto airport without having to wait for our bags."

Cons: "Lavatories didn't flash properly. No tap water"

Pros: "Not much"

Pros: "Spacious enough (for economy), decent food, no delays in boarding or in schedule"
Cons: "I was surprised at the rudeness of the female staff towards people who didn't understand her the first time she said something. Obvious looks of anger and condescending tones towards those people spoke to poor customer service; however, one male staff was really friendly and fluent in Japanese. Very helpful"
Cons: "The issues was the ordering of tickets. Purchased through ANA but flight was handled by American. 1. Seats for 5 tickets were scattered all over the plane 2. All seats were middle seats and cost more to have an isle seat. Cost extra $500 to change so family was together. 3. No communications that flights were American Airline flights leaving LAX from American's Terminal, not Bradley. Only found out when calling ANA to change seats. 4. ANA could not change seats so had to call American. All-in-all this was a terrible experience in ticket purchasing."

Cons: "Hello I would like to submit a formal complaint. I could not complete early check in yesterday due to website maintenance. I arrived to the LAX airport on time today and due the misdirection of the ticket attendant I wasn’t able to select a seat, which I tried to do online approx 24 hours ahead of time but the site was not working or down. I’m a larger person with spinal impairments and unfortunately I was given a middle seat. This will undoubtedly cause significant pain during and after this long flight. I’m very displeased with this and I would like to request a credit or like compensation for my trouble and suffering. Advance thanks for your understanding. "

Cons: "I didnt like that I was charged almost a full month after the booking and wasnt reimbursed for ANAs fuckup"
Cons: "I thought it was ANA but it was United."
Pros: "I got upgraded from Economy to Economy Plus without being charged a dime more. And the difference between the two classes is very noticeable! The Economy Plus seats may have an extra 3" per side and it's awesome! Plus, United partnered up with ANA for my first leg to Manila and that plane was spectacular, as was the top-notch crew!"
Cons: "Food was not good"
Pros: "There was a nice selection of entertainment"
Cons: "The plane was not comfortable at all for an International flight. United should invest in bigger planes for flights over 6 hours. I could hardly sleep since the seats were so uncomfortable. Further, I was unable to get up and move around as much as I had on other international flights. There was no room on this plane to walk around and stretch. The food was mediocre. Quantas, Air China and Japan Airlines have much better meals."
Cons: "I coudnt make an on line checked in, and i called i asked for aisle seats the gurl said yes and its checked in but when i recieved the boarding pass it was middle seat and the worst seat ever at the emergency seat, it was really small the food was terrible service was so bad ! No more united airlines for long flights."
Pros: "The gate at the Chicago airport was well designed. There was a line for each boarding group, and you could line up early. This is particularly effective for some Asian flights, which can sometimes be chaotic with many different nationalities all lining up."
Cons: "Easy for check-in and on time"
Cons: "delayed for typhoon then delayed another day because air traffic control delayed my connector"
Cons: "Everything. Delays were inexcusable, staff ridiculously unfriendly and just bad attitudes all round. Very unpleasant experience, won't be using this airline ever again."

Pros: "good movie selection"
Cons: "couldn't reserve seat in advance; told 3 different things when I bought ticket"
Cons: "My 3rd old was very hungry and I reached out to cabin staff for any kind of food for purchase, they turned me down saying I need to wait for another hour till the dinner time. Did not provide any help there."
