Pros: "The staff was amazing"

Pros: "The help desk employees who helped me rebook my flight."
Cons: "After rushing to catch my connecting Singapore flight, their desks were closed and there wasn’t an employee in site. Given that airlines can see connecting fights it would have been great to have someone stay back to either give me a boarding pass or help me rebook! UNSATISFACTORY!"

Pros: "Friendly service and not a super crowded plane."
Cons: "In-seat entertainment was not working for me, and boarding process could be drastically improved."

Cons: "The person next to me had a distinct body odor."

Pros: "Always love the SIA business product on long haul."
Cons: "This trip had a lot of minor service and cleanliness misses. But they are quibbles in the scheme of the overall great product."

Pros: "The crew was amazing. The seat were uncomfortable"

Cons: "Food could have been better."

Pros: "The crews on board were amazing!"
Cons: "The service from the ground staffs are not as good a the crews onboard."

Cons: "without any possibility to call back. or to call again while being late, when arrived with plenty of time before departure. nobody was on the gate. when tryed to do all myself whithin minutes tsa didnt bother to speedup process and it took forever. i missed my flight literally in seconds."

Pros: "Everything else"
Cons: "Food was less than marginal"

Pros: "The service was excellent start to finish. I found the movie selection to be excellent on the plane and the food was tasty and above average for airline food, and the seats were comfortable."

Pros: "Space in economy seat was good. Huge selection of movies. Food was tasty. On flights to Frankfurt, Singapore Airlines may want to keep more sparkling water in stock, as Europeans prefer this to still water."
Cons: "There was a smell in the plane when I first arrived like vomit. It may have been the cleaning supplies."

Pros: "The crew was very nice and professional and the amenities were top notch."
Cons: "There wasn't enough leg room. My knees touched the chair in front of me the whole time."

Pros: "The trip was horrible we have to sit separately three places."

Pros: "Very organized"
Cons: "Seats could be a bit more comfortable in premium economy"

Pros: "What can I say about a flight of this length? Its always an epic journey to go from the US to Asia. However I will say that with Singapore Airlines things are a lot easier. Excellent crew who were always willing to help with my fondness for a beer. Food was as expected and up to the standard of Singapore Airlines. All round it was a long trip made a lot easier......5 stars."

Pros: "I was inpressed"

Pros: "The flight attendants were amazing."

Pros: "Amazing, amazing service! Great food (including Hagen Daaz ice cream) and good choice of beverages. Lots of different entertainment choices. VERY clean and well maintained aircraft. Staff is always friendly and happy...they really seem to absolutely love their job! Free toiletries in the bathrooms are an extra plus. Whenever there was a change in schedule / plans the captain informed the passengers immediately about what was going on and what would happen next."
Cons: "The only thing that did and probably always will be AWFUL is going thru security at JFK. The T S A officials there are unfriendly, sometimes rude, never smiling and often yelling at you or even little kids or elderly people. We are travelling a lot and no other security staff at any given airport is so unfriendly and harsh. Worst thing about going on a journey."

Cons: "Headphones didn’t work entirely for listening to movies. Had to manually hold it in."

Pros: "There was nothing to complain about..a very friendly staff, departure on time !"
Cons: "No newspapers and magazines on board !"

Pros: "The ground staff at JFK, especially Jon, were very helpful and friendly. The flight crew was also very friendly."

Pros: "The A380 is an amazing plane. The flight was smooth and the engine sounds were fairly low."
Cons: "Waiting on line to check in was more than a half hour although there were probably only 10 people ahead of me. Got a hard time on the weight of my carry-on being more than 7kg although I had to point out that my ticket allowed me two bags that were 23kg each - I had nothing to check. Eventually, when I pointed out that I could wear enough of the clothes from the carry on, they agreed to let me take it on. On board, the service was cold, bland and infrequent. The entertainment system lost sound perhaps 20 minutes into the flight."

Pros: "The crew of ladies and men where so very gracious and courtly, both to the passengers and each other. My wife and I both took note that the flight attendants were "First Class" with emphasis on class. Exceptionally well groomed, but also conveyed genuine concern and helpfulness and at the same time, real workers, energetic and perky. We are bragging to all our friends about the uplifting cultural demeanor of Singapore Airlines. They should all get a pay raise. I will always remember their wonderful service when thinking about our trip to Frankfurt, Germany. Robert"

Pros: "Service from Singapore airlines"

Pros: "Comfort Great book the cook meal choices Restful Attentive service"
Cons: "What’s there not to like about SQ"

Cons: "SMALL SPACE FOR FEET IN BUS. CLASS AND HEAD REST NOT THE MOST COMFORTABLE"

Pros: "The choices for entertainment were excellent! I was never bored for a second on my 20++ hours of flight. I love how they gave us in-ear earphones instead of the normal airline headphones that keep on sliding off."
Cons: "It was quite difficult for me to get comfortable. Maybe it's due to my shortness, I can't really rest my head that well"

Pros: "My luggage was lost, due to an error of another airline. but singapore air took care of it and made sure i got the luggage in Germany - even though it involved bringing it to me to remote location 2.5 hour drive from frankfurt. free of charge. Thanks Singapore airlines!"

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "the gates the time intervals and the connections..."

Pros: "From the beginning until the end the service, the vibe, the flight itself was amazing. I don't know any other airline I flew with so far that hosted me and all other flyers better. At any time I was supported by the staff and even if it was busy they constantly had a kindness and smile in their face. I don't fly with any other airline on long distance flights! It was clean and neat on top at any time. I love flying with Singapore airlines. I feel safe and in good hands all around. This is how service should be at any airline! It is never less good but a constant since years! Thank you"

Pros: "On my flight back I got to sit in premier economy and that was amazing !! I want to fly like that all the time! The leg room and space was perfect. The comfort of the chairs recline and foot rest that raised up was great. The big tray table that tucked away was nice. And side pockets for your stuff was great. The comfort of the bigger seats was just excellent and they looked newer. On my flight back from Frankfurt to NYC that was the best flight I ever have taken."
Cons: "The only thing was the food wasn't the best. But I did have Ice cream and that was good. The rice was good and beverages was good. The rest wasn't the best."

Pros: "Had to get new boarding passes at JFK eventhough issued passes at Rochester without gate numbers but was then able to check that my bags were transferred to SIA."

Cons: "They charged 60NZD for one small checked bag! And then I misunderstood the policy on lithium batteries and switched my power banks from carry-on to checked bag and they confiscated them. So there goes that."

Pros: "The food was very good, the movie selection was great, and the staff were friendly and caring."

Pros: "The people and the service were top notch. I fly on numerous carriers and overall AirNZ has been my favorite, hands down, primarily because of the helpful kind friendly staff."
Cons: "Disembarking down onto the tarmac, and being made to stand out there for about 5 minutes (supposedly for safety's sake) while another plane was being pushed out from the next gate, all the while breathing in the choking nauseating jet exhaust fumes while our own plane was idling."

Pros: "The service was very nice. The food was good. The entertainment choices were good as well."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Someone sitting in my seat already!"

Bags coming off the flight last made the customs line very long, after going through customs couldn't find where to check our bags on to Queenstown, finally found the the automatic check-in, too late only one person to help. So late had to walk to the domestic terimal, in a hurry. Finally found the check-in, checked all 3 bags, arrived in Queenstown, only two came in."

Cons: "We were booked on a 7 a.m. flight Wednesday morning. We arrived from Syndney the night before and wanted to make sure we were set for the early morning flight so went to an Air NZ information desk to get boarding pass. The agent printed out an e-ticket and said we were good to go. We arrived an hour and a half early to the gate, with our carry on bags as we have done all over the world. We heard an announcement about bags needing to be checked and assumed ours would be gate checked if needed (as anywhere else in the world). The gate agent didn't arrive til 20 minutes before the flight and told us we DIDN'T have a boarding pass and needed to return to the ticket agent and check our bags. By the time we ran back to the ticket agent we were told it was too late to check our bags. We had to pay $100 more a piece to fly LATER through Christ Church. We were on our way to meet our kids for vacation and ended up losing a day and $200 additional dollars because we were given inaccurate information by the Air New Zealand info desk."

Pros: "I enjoyed the entertainment and two of the fight attendants were nice."
Cons: "I didn't care for the family that was surrounding us from all angles; they were constantly in and out of their seats visiting one another while pulling, kicking, and opening and closing the tray tables over and over again. I didn't care for one of the unpleasant flight attendants as well."

Pros: "The service was great and the seats had a lot of leg room. Very easy to check in online and drop bags at the airport."
Cons: "The wine was delicious and I wanted more"

Pros: "Service and attitude superb"

Pros: "They put me on a flight to Auckland and then a flight to Wellington"
Cons: "Well I didn't even get on this flight because the plane haven't even left wellington when it was supposed to have been boarding in Sydney had to get two different flights"

Pros: "Generally like the airline, and Auckland airport. The crew onboard was great, but the guy that helped me check in, and the guy that took my money for the extra rad fee were rude and bad with communicating with both me and each other. Seemed a bit clueless really."
Cons: "That I got charged $140 extra to check a bag even though it all fit under my allowed weight. Very unhappy about that."

Cons: "The airport is too small for loading a full international flight."

Pros: "No food, late by hour"

Cons: "They were delayed. They wouldn't let us keep our checked sized bags which slowed us down even more. Our next flight left without us while we were waiting for a gate to open so we could get off the plane. There were no more flights so we had to fly to an alternate city and rent a car to get home."

Cons: "An officious crew who said they had a 'seat belt detector' to tell if people's seatbelts were fastened. A late flight... with lies about the reason for the delay."

Cons: "The plane broke down as we were about to take off. Delta rebooked everyone on to new flights because it was pretty obvious that plane was not going to be fixed in time. The crew did their best given the situation. The situation was absolute bs though - we had to take a cab to JFK for our new flight and do the whole security thing again and all that annoying stuff. Thanks for wasting 8 hours of my life, Delta."

Cons: "Well you get what you pay for so I’m not really complaining here. The economy seating was a bit cramped. I’m 6 foot and it was not comfortable for me. I can only imagine how it eould be for people taller and bigger than me. Flight was too short for meas. Snacks were good though."

Sprinting through the airport with all luggage only to be told I couldon't not board even though the flight did not leave for 5 more minutes"

Cons: "Everything was great"

Cons: "Flight was delayed indefinitely. Delta supposedly booked me on united flight but made an error."

Cons: "Not only were there delays but they wouldn't allow me to upgrade to first class even though there were seats available, they said "oh with the package you purchased it's not available" Then why was I able to upgrade to first class for the other portion of my flight? The customer service was awful too, transferred 5 times on the phone for 20 mins to not get any help and for them to uncheck me in, I had to check in for my flight again."

Pros: "I had paid for the Sky level as we were a party of long legged people. Out of the 4 flights we had taken, the best flight was the one from Hi to Atl. The seats, and leg space, was roomy. The food was good. The crew was just okay. They weren't particularly nice but rather abrupt. There were two mates that seems a bit confused. However, the plane was worth it."

Pros: "First class stewardess was excellent."

Pros: "The airplane"
Cons: "Poor food"

Pros: "A woman who spoke no English or French was seated next to me last minute with a baby who cried the whole flight. The woman hit me several times, waking me up, while trying to get the baby to stop crying. Talk about a red eye"

Pros: "Since I’m a United Gold member I get upgrades and the use if the lounge. Nothing beats that. New planes and friendly crews."

Cons: "I was lead to believe I was booking a flight on lufthansa. It turned out it was United in a confirmation email a few weeks following the purchase. Then 24 hours prior to boarding, a notification comes in that I am flying Air Brussels. This leaves me with confusion - which airport terminal to go to, where to check in, who to call, etc. When I finally arrive to the airport at JFK, I find there is no Air Brussels Check in and that I need to go to United. But United no longer operates out of JFK, so I was finally directed to the British Airways terminal to check in with Eurowings. The flight was supposedly a Eurowings flight in collaboration with Lufthansa and United but operated by Brussels Airlines. I’ve never before experienced this miscommunication and confusion with one single flight, especially in my home country. When I booked the flight, it was quite clear it was Lufthansa and I paid Lufthansa prices. I was very disappointed overall with the experience leading me up to boarding time and had I known it was not a Lufthansa plane and crew, I would not have booked it. I hope you can I understand my frustration as this was poorly communicated and manasged and was quite misleading from the start. I would appreciate some compensation or recognition for the confusion as I will no longer be using Kayak or third party booking sites due to the way this was handled. I am a loyal Kayak user, but this was just too much and nothing like I’ve ever experienced before."

Cons: "The plane was over 3 hours late, and then at landing we sat for 30 minutes waiting for a gate"

Cons: "Booked flight to go & care for my 94 year old mother in Germany. She died 6 weeks before planned departure. I immediately advised Lufthansa, asking for cancellation of flight and reimbursement. They cancelled my reservation immediately. While LH received my payment on Nov. 21st, it is now more than 3 months later and I still have not received reimbursement. I am very upset and disappointed with LH's unresponsiveness to my request."

Pros: "Barb M. was at the front desk at the United Lounge. She is an incredibly kind human being. I was very sick and this flight was delayed so it was going to cause me to miss my connecting flight overseas. She tried all that she could to rebook me on a different flight but the problem was the destination's air traffic control, not the airplane, so it wasn't going to fix the problem. I was able to rebook my connecting flight, at a cost, but at least I wasn't going to miss it. Barb went and made me hot tea with fresh ginger, mint leaves, and honey for my throat. Through a difficult situation, she was a ray of sunshine and kindness."
Cons: "Every time I travel United, it is delayed. I don't understand why. In this situation the problem was the airline so I understand that is beyond what United controls."

Pros: "On time and good service. Nice seats. United mobile app is the best."

Pros: "I don't like the small planes United uses."

Cons: "Very small plane with very small seats"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They oversold the flight and made me check my bag as a result when I told them I needed to remove the fragile object I was carrying they told me I should have thought of that before buying a cheaper ticket and refused to let me remove the object because the flight needed to take off. When my object came back shattered they informed me they don't cover fragile objects and I should have known that when checking my bag."

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Lost my bag"

Pros: "On time departure early landing and I received a free small meal for being a Service member!"
Cons: "Best service I have had on a recent flight. no complaints!"

Cons: "Time and efficiency"

Cons: "I could be riding my bike to the destination faster than this. You airlines overbook your flights and then can't handle any slipups if something goes wrong, then your "customers" become the dominoes that fall. With the risk that I must stay overnight in the airport!!!!!! OUTRAGEOUSLY TERRIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Pros: "United entertainment options are fantastic. Using their app and on board wifi we have access to a very large collection of free movies and tv shows that kept me entertained"
Cons: "We taxied on the runway for over an hour waiting for a spot to take off. That is acceptable as the airport was dealing was lightning strikes. What was not acceptable was that fact that the airplane cabin during this time was a sauna. The air conditioning did not work and the entire airplane was really hot the crew said that the air was turned on all the way but that was having no effect. Beverages were served 5 mins before landing. How do we seat or drink anything in that time?."

Cons: "The 777-200 is geting old"

Pros: "Flight on time, no delays or problems"
Cons: "Seating for midgets"

Cons: "Flight delayed"

Cons: "Flight cancelled due to weather at ohare despite the fact that many other flights were still going. First delayed, sat around for hours, then cancelled almost 3 hours post scheduled departure time. No hotel voucher provided. Rebooked, but not done correctly so when I tried to check in, it was discovered that I didn't actually have a rebooking, requiring additional calls and second rebooking."

Pros: "The staff was pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "The flight was late but that was at no fault to the airline."

Cons: "Why does the crew giving the announcement have to either hell into the microphone or why does the speakers so loud it was deafing!"

Cons: "Seat did not recline Very very bumpy landing made everyone queasy"

Cons: "Three of the four flights were delayed. It seems that this is business as usual for United."

Pros: "on time"
Cons: "food for sale was mediocre and a tiny portion for a high price, cramped even in economy plus, crew memeber was unaware what he was selling me for food."

Pros: "The plane was waiting for delayed passengers Crew was nice"
Cons: "No drinks Nothing for passengers due to turbulent"

Pros: "I enjoyed the quick duration of the flight."
Cons: "There was not much to complain about from this flight."

Pros: "The trip to washigton was great,we were 40 min.early."
Cons: "The trip back to LA was 1 hour delayed"
