Pros: "Me & my family already travel from penang malaysia to kuala lumpur air port, reached KLIA to check in, the MAS/JAL counter told me that our ticket been void by agnet kayak/flight network. Nothing can the counter do till i've to call kayak/flight network. One hour conversation from malaysia to canada. What a wast & replace me with air china. Stupid kayak & flight network."
Pros: "Direct flights from San Diego to Narita. Easy connections for other countries. Good food. Luggage allowance."
Cons: "Seats are a bit hard and do not recline enough. Would trade legroom for more angle on the seats."
Pros: "Plenty of leg room, which as a tall person I truly appreciate. They give you slippers, blanket, pillow on every (international?) flight. I flew Korea to Japan and Japan to Hawaii. Got free meals on all flights, even my short two hr flight between Korea and Japan. Free booze too!"
Cons: "Small overhead bin. Not deep enough, I had to turn my suitcase sideways. Luckily there was no one in our middle seat or I'm not sure where they would've put their baggage."
Pros: "Upgraded to premium economy and the seat was comfortable. However the food was lacking. The snack was a collection of overly sweet bars and bread. The meal was okay."
Cons: "My seat was not comfortable and it was uncomfortably warm."
Pros: "Everything from start to finish was awesome. The "poor" review by someone complaining about a gluten-free meal is typical of Americans that feel entitled. You are on JAPAN airlines... you do realize the non-gluten-free rice is a staple of the country. It's akin to a Japanese person complaining that there aren't chopsticks provided with the meals on an American Airlines flight. How were the staff supposed to help you mid-air? Mid-flight dock so one special meal can be provided for you? How about this: take some personal responsibility and purchase your own gluten free food for the flight and carry it on. Really... how can one compare the 787 with individual on demand entertainment, roomy seats, full meal service (they'll even bring a meal to you if you were asleep during the normal service), etc... all for no extra charge?!?!? It is simply amazing what JAL (and every Japanese company) sets as a standard for customer service."
Pros: "Service was excellent."
Cons: "Seat felt stiff but felt well rested after flight"
Pros: "The cabin crew is very nice , pleasant & the captain did a great job!"
Cons: "Maybe a change in your food menu that you can include some continental items."

Pros: "Food, Entertainment."
Cons: "Harder than usually landing"
Pros: "Ok boarding, plane was new, entertainment system was up to date"
Cons: "Premium economy service is even worse than economy as crew is never around and busy in economy. Seats are bigger but not really comfortable. Food is same as economy. Doesn't worth it to buy premium economy."
Cons: "Flat bed in business class was disappointing. No way anyone taller than 6’ could stretch out. Overall, it was an inferior experience to business class on Cathay Pacific, which sets the standard IMO."
Pros: "Flight was very pleasant and enjoyable, on time for both departure and arrival."
Cons: "Meals were served rather slow as we were last for row 45 but there was insufficient time for us to finish the meal, collection of trays started in 5 minutes time"
Cons: "Food could have been better."
Pros: "The cabin crew and the pilots. The flight went smoothly."
Cons: "Singapore Airlines should inform clearly of the mileage policy and the lounge access while using a code-share flight. I thought I booked as a code-shared Singapore Airline flight, but I got rejected from the lounge access."
Pros: "Handset to control screen didn’t work. Airline reimbursed me with $75 voucher for inflight duty-free shop."
Pros: "The crew was great as usual. The food was good"
Cons: "Better seats - really uncomfortable with a packed plane and wailing infants even when seated quite a few rows away."
Cons: "Singapore Airlines is so wildly overrated. The service is frequently poor, and the cabin environment dirty and old unless flying on their very latest planes. Even their A380s are now stale and musty. Not nice."
Pros: "Everything from booking, online check-in, self printing of Boarding Pass, BIz Class lounge, Flight. Flight too short (KL to SG) for me to eat and enjoy the inflight entertainment."
Pros: "Got bumped to Business Class"
Pros: "Service was great on both sectors"
Cons: "Premium economy seat is still not comfortable enough in comparison with economy."
Pros: "loved d bnew 787 dreamliner planes. loved d medium haul biz class seats."

Pros: "Singapore airline is amazing, great service and quality entertainment."

Pros: "I liked the food that was provided and the range of entertainment is up to date anencephaly plentiful, spoiling you for choice. The flight crew were very friendly and prompt to serve which was amazing"
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."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, derive very ordinary staff unhelpful seat allocation system requires improving ! Extra cost from economy was not worth it !"
Pros: "Everything from Ticketing, Checking in......"
Cons: "Flight attendants were bot friendly, appearwd to be botheted when askes questions or requests were made."
Pros: "Most everything"
Cons: "Crying babies made it tough to sleep the whole flight"

Pros: "Finally an airline that loads from the back to the front. Makes sense to me"
Pros: "food. schedule was on time"
Pros: "New plane. Good entertainment. Seat reclined a lot but would not stay reclined."
Cons: "The food was horrendous. Worst airline food I've ever had. Check in and boarding area not great. Very overrated airline."
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."
Cons: "Food was. Not available. They said they don't have extra veg food . I selected beg food still it shows them non veg and I was pass my way with empty stomach"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Aircond isn’t working at seat 60 onwards. Warm. Sweaty."
Pros: "The hot towels twice during the flight was great"
Cons: "Really just the food"
Pros: "Red wine was good"
Cons: "The seats in economy are now Way TOO SMALL! You better start calling Economy - "Stearage"! Food was not as good as on past flights with SA. Movie selection not as good as past SA flights. Earphones supplied are horrible!!!"
Pros: "Safety, Friendlyness, Seats, Entertainment"
Pros: "Food, entertainment, cleanliness of the restrooms"
Cons: "I was travelling with a toddler and they did not have a toy or activity to give her on a 15 hour flight. We were told to keep our seats upright during meal times and to keeo our window shutters down during other times. This made sense. But there were passengers right in front of us who had their seats reclined during meal time and the crew did not tell them anything."
Pros: "The seat comes with foot rest attached to the front seat."
Cons: "I asked for decaf coffee and the attendant totally forgot about my request."
Pros: "Great flight amazing service"
Pros: "Crew and boarding were efficient"
Cons: "Choice to have meal immediately after takeoff or just before landing. I chose to have it just after take-off but didn't expect not to have any breakfast. Not fun leaving the plane hungry."
Pros: "Singapore Airlines is my new airline, forget about any other airlines. They have very beautiful service and entertainment. Their staff and one of the best crews ever. I really love it."
Pros: "Good seats, personal TV with movies and good shows. They gave us socks, blamkets, pillows headphones, etc."
Cons: "The crew was chronically rude to me. They would skip me when handing out beverages to everyone. I was lied to and passed down the beaurocracy over issues with my Stopover Holiday packages. They lost my bags. In Hong kong, I was told the designated smoking area in the terminal was close and the steward encouraged me to go...I almost missed the flight even though I didn't even make it to where she directed me. It was not close, she was a liar. They lost my bags. They kept calling me sir despite my corrections and obvious female anatomy. They had no remorse or apologies for their errors"
Cons: "The food was very poor indeed, the entertainment system was not working in my seat or the seat behind, I had to move to another seat"
Pros: "Great food and plenty of movies. Friendly crew"
Pros: "Excellent service, food, in-flight entertainment (what choices!!), and the plane was very up to date as well. Made for a very very pleasant flight experience. Especially for how long the flight was (18 hours or so)"
Cons: "The get out and get back in halt at Hong Kong. Practically the entire flight had to do this, quite wasteful. Bad customer experience. Find a better way please! If Hong Kong makes you do that switch over to another airport, better yet make no halt. I have flown direct from SF to Singapore before so not sure why this halt."
Pros: "Food was exceptional"
Pros: "Aircraft was a new A320. Superb. Loads of legroom and extra width . Great flight."
Pros: "Their plane"
Pros: "Crew were fantastic"
Cons: "Entertainment choices"
Pros: "Kind staff, long flight but the attendant were super kind"
Pros: "My first experience in business class"
Cons: "Basic flight with no frills"
Cons: "Perfect flight. Delicious meals. Great crew."
Cons: "The flight was not on time There was no food on the plane for us even though we paid “full service carrier” price There were very few free movies!!! This is horrible. We wished we’d flown with Jetstar - lack of everything like with air New Zealand but at least the price would be much lower!"
Cons: "No enough blankets when feeling cold"
Pros: "on time, crew were friendly"
Cons: "have to pay to watch movie"
Cons: "When I booked this fly, no one tell me check in luggage has to be charged"
Pros: "Excellent attendants"
Cons: "Landing was a bit bumpy!"
Pros: "The boarding process was nice because Star Alliance gold members can board early and get miles for the flights. They also had lots of movie options. Decent flight."
Cons: "I bought my ticket on kayak because on the search filter, it said 1 carry-on bag and 1 check-in bag but after the e-ticket was issued it said that it was a no luggage and no meal ticket. I had to pay excess in baggage fees ($100 AUD for 1 check in bag) and during the flight, all you get is coffee, tea or water. You have to pay for meals or soft drinks. I think if I bought on air New Zealand website, I would’ve gotten a better idea of all the fare types and pay a little bit more to get the proper amenities."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Pity that a light meal wasn’t served fir free but understand because of low price"
Pros: "The service was excellent. The food was wonderful and the cabin very comfortable."
Pros: "service, food, good pilot"
Cons: "nothing everything just perfect"
Pros: "The crew were friendly."
Cons: "I was charged $120 for baggage to fly 3 hours from NZ to Australia, when there was no mention of it when I purchased and no indication of these fees in the booking info."
Pros: "Fantastic selection of entertainment, friendly crew, and tasty food. I’ve enjoyed flying with Air New Zealand!"
Cons: "The lumbar support in the seats is quite inadequate."
Pros: "No bags on an international flight?! I had to pay $375 for 3 bags. Last minute changes with a layover, instead of a 3 hr flight it was a 6 hr flight and NO FOOD not even available to purchase.... very confusing very disappointed...."
Pros: "The premium econ seat and services."
Cons: "The sold out flight to air New Zealand. Had to purchase bags again even though already purchased."
Cons: "Charged us for baggage, even though the flight was international and clearly stated on their website international flights included baggage. Had to pay more than we paid for our flights just to check a bag."
Cons: "bummed I couldn't even opt in or purchase wifi. being self-employed and having such long flight - its just a missed opportunity. the screens were hard to even see. it just kind of felt like an old, dirty airline."
Pros: "We fly a lot and have flown American, European, Asian airlines but this has to be the best experienxe ever. First, their checkin is all automated, even baggage. That makes the lines really short. Their staff standing by to help at every moment. When we used another airline in Australia Jetstar, we waited in line for one hour and then were scolded for being late! We even had to pay for our water and the staff took turn scolding us over our overhead bin stuff. Boarding of NZ airline was so comfortable, without pushing or crowds. Staff always welcoming you with a smile. Seats are wide and we were given free drinks, free headohones, and wait for it.... free dinner! And all served so politey and in the most gracious manner as if we were their guests. We were so taken back by their service and this was the aecond time we have flown with them in 10 days. My young daughter thought may be their staff gets paid more so they seem to be so much more happy. I also think that there is something when you dehumanize your customers by charging them for water and being uncaring to their needs. The staff also starts to treat the customers as cattle. Besides Southwest Airlines, I havent come across one another airline where the staff treat their custmoers with reapect while charging them for water. So airlines, take note. I would pay $50 per ticket extra just to be in NZ airline."
Pros: "Flight was okay. Short enough that small space was manageable."
Cons: "Would have liked in flight entertainment"
Cons: "Check In Issues related to code share flight"
Pros: "Good thing, we got there."
Cons: "The flight attendants did nothing and told us we had to buy water. Really?? We were over charged for our baggage by a long shot. You sell cheap flights but by the time you pay for bags it is no longer a deal."
Pros: "$220 to take an extra bag. This is stupid. Why no disclosure about bag fees"
Pros: "Not much to like with the cattle car ride that was an hour late."
Cons: "I was shocked at the baggage charge upon checking in and was told I just purchased a seat from Virgin Australia but no baggage transport with the flight. When kayak directed me to VA, I made the purchase and certainly did not remember being offered a chance to purchase baggage fee as other airlines offer (e.g. BA). While I understand kayak refer users to search airlines baggage fees it need to make sure that airlines offer true and baggage fees at the time of purchase so the full cost of flight is clear at purchase time."
Pros: "The crew was very nice, and I loved the entertainment options."
Pros: "Friendly crew, timely response, food was nice"
Pros: "We did not use the food or entertainment"
Pros: "The plane and staff were very welcoming."
Cons: "The connection was very tight. Luggage was lost, but was sent to us the same day. It was left in Auckland,accidentally."
Pros: "The crew and plane was tops"
Cons: "It is very long, but that is no reflection on you."
Pros: "Crew are good, TV shows are included"
Cons: "Charging for movies seems a bit too low cost!"
Pros: "Love the variety of movies etc available on every flight."
Pros: "Very friendly crew, clean and comfortable."
Pros: "It was okay, we made it to Sydney safe and sound, but I'd expect that anyway. We had works deluxe seats. Food was terrible service was on par with the terrible American carriers. The very first New Zealand air flight apparently set the bar too high. It was fantastic! The other 3 were nothing in comparison."
Cons: "Staff was not friendly or attentive."
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."
Cons: "Slow service and delay exiting"
Pros: "Awesome crew! Tasty food! Comfy seats!"
Pros: "Very helpful check-in staff helped me arrange to sit with a friend on the trip."
Cons: "My first seat had a broken entertainment system but I was quickly moved to a new seat."
Pros: "Lots of entertainment options and friendly crew."
Cons: "The touch screens on the seats for the entertainment are difficult to use because they are not very sensitive. I found myself having to tap the screen extra hard and repeatedly sometimes before it responded."
Pros: "great flight attendants who really seem like they want to be flying. The economy seats are better than most other airlines. I will always check to see if Air NZ flys to the destination I'm going. They are classy."
Cons: "I got upgraded to business :)"
Pros: "The cabin crew was very attentive throughout the long flight, offering water and orange juice often. Good selection of movies was available."
Cons: "Can't think of anything, everything was very good."
Cons: "Cleaning of bathrooms"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The seat was could have been firmer and a little more space between the rows in economy would help greatly for comfort for all."
Cons: "Again very impressed with Qatar Airways service on the board"
Pros: "Qatar Airlines treats you very nicely and doesn’t try to charge for little extras. They include the nice extras as part of your travel experience with them. I highly recommend Qatar!"
Cons: "Catering load was poorly estimated. They'd run out of my first choice of brunch despite being in the first row (apparently pancakes are "really popular with the kids" but they don't load extra to account for this). Also ran out of my main choice."
Pros: "Qatar Airways could not be described except a FIVE STARS airline. Great hospitality and respectful crew"
Pros: "YES--best airline for sure!"
Cons: "Congratulations on achieving excellence."
Pros: "The crew was very nice, courteous and helpful"
Cons: "The seats did not have enough leg space, very cramped. You had bigger, comfortable planes on flight from Doha To Washington DC in 2011."
Pros: "Friendly crews. Excellent food. Great service. On time arrival."
Cons: "They could provide hotel for transit passengers with long layovers."
Pros: "The service was great! I slept almost the whole way in economy and was very comfortable!"
Pros: "Seat where comfortable and thank needed more leg space"
Cons: "Good was poor bcz going and back was same menu of choice of food."
Pros: "The entertainment was reasonable, I enjoyed the festive choices."
Cons: "Screaming babies, obese people sat next to me, water rationing, not a pleasant experience. Arrived sleep deprived and dehydrated. I have much better experiencs on a visit to Australia - this was my third time this year!"
Pros: "Too tired after almost 24 hours traveling. No complaints."
Cons: "Transfer was messy, no screens or indications on sight when landed in Doha to transfer with a very short time. Boarding in Doha was extremely slow, some passengers had issues with their travel documents and instead of handling those issues on the side, they kept everyone waiting for over 15 minutes"
Pros: "I got an aisle seat. Bathrooms were not bad in terms of cleanliness."
Cons: "Service was ok. I was forgotten to be served items that other passengers were given. Seating ended up being kind of cramped as passenger in front was relaxing a bit too much. Entertainment was ok."
Cons: "The changed the time of flight had to wait airport for 5 hrs"
Pros: "The food and service was wonderful! Easy smooth flight, made 9 hours fly by!"
Pros: "The leg space the reclining chair the personal tv the head rest The food"
Cons: "Haven't made it yet due to schedule change. 12 hour wait in airport."
Pros: "process quick and efficient"
Cons: "average seats"
Pros: "Best host staff"
Pros: "Terry was wonderful"
Cons: "Bad app don’t trust"
Pros: "Very nice staff."
Cons: "Lack of diversity with the area crew. It would be good to have some Black area crew staff."
Pros: "Lots of entertainment"
Cons: "Originally I was assigned a wonderful seat but then I was put in the back by window it was very cramped and noisy. The flight stuff was mediocre and the food was not that good either. Big difference from the flight over"
Pros: "It was really good, crew helped a lot me n my baby, it was not difficult to travel alone with my baby"
Pros: "Loved the food and entertainment."
Cons: "Not enough leg room and space between the chair in front."
Cons: "They re issued my boarding pass Doha, for Dallas flight and gave us the last seat on the plane, even though I chosed the seat at the time of booking. Food was ok, but when we asked for the chicken they didn’t had it. It’s an international flight of 15 hours with food shortage???"
Pros: "Once staff were aware that my child was sick one staff member in particular regularly checked on the well being of my child."
Cons: "Crew only helpful when pushed to help. My child was sick and the cabin crew tried to give me food. I said that my child had just vomited but there was no offer to help me clear it up they just continued serving food to other passengers. I had to search for someone to help me to clear up and then I felt as though I was an inconvenience. I then had to look for someone to bring food for myself and other child. My other child is 1yr and 11 months and I was told they were only allowed baby food not a child meal. Although there were a few spare seats on the plane I was squashed into a full row with a 3 yr old and one year old on my lap. I appreciate that there may not have been any bassinet seats left but would have been helpful not to be on a full row as a single adult travelling with two small children. No offers for assistance with bags."
Pros: "The staff are outstanding! Friendly, helpful and accommodating."
Cons: "Poor choice of movies. Their 'world' movies should have subtitles"
Pros: "Everything is good"

Pros: "Food was great, seats were comfortable, in flight entertainment was awesome, flight crew was friendly"

Pros: "Very friendly crew and efficient check-in service. Food was lovely."
Cons: "Multiple problems with onboard entertainment re-setting itself."
Pros: "Overall the flight was great"
Pros: "I travel from Sydney to Europe (UK and Greece) regularly. My experience with Qatar airways was fantastic: I highly recommend it. First of all, the travelling hours are a bit shorter (compared to travelling via Singapore or Hong Kong) probably because of the geography of the cities/connections and the corresponding flight times between Athens-Doha-Sydney. The aircraft was exceptional (I believe it was Airbus A380). It was a double-deck, wide-body and four-engine jet airliner. Cabin and economy class seats were very comfortable and more spacious compared to other aircraft. There was minimal turbulence, which is partially due to the type of aircraft: at least this is my understanding. The aircraft also had wi-fi (complimentary for the first 15 min) and one was allowed to use the mobile phone during the flight (except during take off and landing times). The flight attendants were absolutely amazing. Also, the crew was very understanding and friendly with children. Food was also excellent and in good portions. Overall there was high tech aircraft, excellent service and no delays. I will choose it again in the future."
Cons: "On the downside, I had a problem with my entertainment device during the whole flight: there was no sound, so I was not really able to watch any movies/TV.. The flight attendants tried to sort it out, but it was not possible. They kindly brought complimentary magazines and drinks/snacks, however it would have been much preferable if I could watch a movie or if free wi-fi was offered for the whole flight, as compensation.. My understanding is that this was not an option, due to problems providing free password..."
Cons: "The seats don't recline very far and on the a380 the window is a very long way from the seat making it impossible to lean against. - so difficult to get a reasonable test. The food was not great. Perhaps not qatar's fault(?) but we bought duty free alcohol in Brussels and took as carry on then after a layover in Doha we were advised Australian regulations prohibited us from taking it on board for the final leg - even though it was still sealed in the duty free bag. We were forced to check it protected only by some lightweight clothing and a thin back pack we had been using as cabin luggage. Fortunately it made it undamaged - but it would be better if we had been informed of this at Brussels."
Pros: "Friendly quality staff, good aircraft."
Pros: "The entertainment was great and the crew was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The ability to access bathrooms after turbulence has ended"
Cons: "The flight crew and gate crew were the rudest I have seen in my entire life. They acted as if they were too good to acknowledge passengers and ignored the flight attendant light and other efforts to get their attention to ask a question."
Cons: "Stuff not helpful, rude and not helping at all despite us being with a baby"

Cons: "Serving alcohol to someone who had consumed a lot, difficult for the crew to know though."
Pros: "The flight certainly lived up to its reputation as being one of the nicest airlines to fly, even in being in economy. Great service, great food, great on board entertainment."
Cons: "There was an incident prior to take off where a passenger in first class had to be removed from the plane. Though it’s certainly not the airlines fault that there was an issue with a passenger, they should’ve been a lot more transparent and gave us a lot more information on what exactly was going on other then “we need to go back to a special area to get this passenger off.” Couple that with the security checks to “make sure there is nothing on the plane that shouldn’t be” and very little explanation of what actually occurred, it made for a very stressful flight. Not knowing if this passenger had made any kind of threat against the plane, or safety of other passengers... etc, it was very hard to feel safe for the remainder of my trip being left in the dark as the incident occurred in first class."

Pros: "Decent food, real utensils, free wine, excellent entertainment system, free limited wifi. Try finding that on a budget airline"
Cons: "The boarding gate space was quite small and there was no separate queue for business. So you literally had to push through people who were already in the queue to board as a business class. There was no space to go around."
Cons: "They didn’t have enough landing cards in English, the aircraft temperature inside was too cold, the staff didn’t close the curtains to the galley area and made noise and light while everyone is trying to sleep, our baggage came out last despite having priority tags and the boarding process from the lounge in Dubai with lifts was very combersome"

Pros: "La amabilidad de la tripulación, que sí el menú es completamente vegetariano. No como otras aerolíneas que te ponen manteca, leche para el café..."
Cons: "Todas las veces me cae muy, pero muy mal. Cuando llegó el momento del té o café, me dieron sal en vez de edulcorante. Demasiado condimento. No es comida para un vuelo, es difícil de digerir. Hasta produce síntomas de indigestión."
Cons: "We fid not enjoy the close proximity of several screaming children who insisted in screaming at all hoyrs, making sleep impossible. What was concerning was the reluctance of the staff to intervene. Most disappointing as we did not have any sleep at all overnight."
