The staff and service of SIngapore Airlines is hard to beat. They are excellent. If they could only figure out their call center fiasco it would be a top airline. Attempting to call SQ is like trying to talk to the dead.
Pros: "Amazing crew, very nice and helpful."
Pros: "Very comfortable; excellent service"
Pros: "When the seat folded down (business class) into a bed, it gave almost a twin size bed that was flat."
Cons: "Being in business class, I had expected the food to be better. Also, the red wines offered were only a sub selection of the ones in the menu."
Cons: "This time Singapore Airlines Staff seem to be not so helpful. Previously they were happy to help with smiling face and approachable immediately. This time in spite of asking for help in the cabin no one turned up even after multiple requests. I could only get help when someone one walks next to me."
Pros: "Super friendly crew. Enough food and drink."
Cons: "Having a reservation on Alaska for the first leg of the trip would have been nice. They didn't expect us, we had no confirmation number that Alaska recognized so we were denied boarding. How much else could have gone wrong?"
Pros: "Cabin crew were great"
Cons: "Depends which plane you get some i found the seats were wider and sitting up the front. Overall a good experience as it was my first time traveling with them."

Pros: "Couldn't find a problem"
Pros: "Excellent customer service, helpful staff"
Cons: "Food was unpalatable - HNML. Needs to be improved, the beans in a tomato sauce looked like a tin of dice tomatoes was poured over the boiled beans. Chicken curry didn’t taste good either as it was over cooked. Didn’t relish the vermicelli dessert or the salmon. Thanks for the roll & lactose free butter, the cheese and biscuits"
Pros: "Staff were very attentive and checked in on us regularly to make sure we had everything we needed. Food was great and ammenities kept spotless."
Pros: "Brand new aircraft, excellent service and food"
Cons: "J class seat, 12A window. Top of my seat curled around my sides, which blocked vision thru 1.5 of the 3 windows I had access to. The enclosure also protuded into my left bicep when I had my elbow resting on the arm rest. Table on my right hand side was too close to my body, and to high to reach a drink easily, I literally had to lift my whole right arm to pick up a glass."
Pros: "Great service."
Cons: "Disinfectant smell."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Very poor on board entertainment"
Pros: "Efficient, comfortable."
Pros: "Most everything"
Cons: "Crying babies made it tough to sleep the whole flight"

Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Able to check luggage in 48 hrs before flight saving $50 storage fees, so went back into CBD for the day."

Pros: "easy check in process and the crew was awesome. friendly and attentive to all passengers. great food as well."
Pros: "More movies and TV than you can watch, incredible cabin team, low cost, I mean, what's not to like. American, are you listening?!?"
Cons: "I have to drive from DFW to IAH, I wish Singapore would take over from American and British Air at DFW, honestly Singapore is cheaper, better service, nicer ground and in flight teams. It's worth the extra drive to travel with people that actually care"
Pros: "I’ve flown with a lot of airlines in every class. This was an economy class flight and still the food was better than I’ve received in business class on American. The seat was comfortable, the entertainment options varied and extensive and the cabin team were amazing. They clean the bathrooms between uses. Seriously how do other airlines still exist?"
Cons: "No free upgrade? ;-). But that’s unreasonable. I love this airline having not flown with them for 4 years I don’t understand why!"
Pros: "There was nothing to complain about..a very friendly staff, departure on time !"
Cons: "No newspapers and magazines on board !"
Pros: "the flight schedule are very good"
Pros: "Efficient courteous and attractive crew. Good food drink selection and great entertainment system."
Cons: "Unfortunately the plane was an older 777-200 with smaller TV screens but otherwise fine."
Pros: "Comfy chairs and good food on Singapore Airlines."
Cons: "Some of the male crew didn't do anything, the females did all the interactive work in serving and helping the disabled as far as I could see."

Cons: "Don't change anything!"
Pros: "Liked everything from service to comfort"

Pros: "SQ always has top quality service and that came through today."
Cons: "Old planes and screens."
Pros: "The crew was very kind and helpful."
Cons: "My daughter had the vegetarian oriental - and it was basically a ball of slim. My son had the lactose free meal and it was broccoli and potatoes. We switched our return flight meals to the regular in-flight meal. It was better, but not great."
Pros: "Crew went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. Seats seemed roomier in economy than other airlines. Lots on movie choices."
Cons: "I didn't care much for the meals, but my husband loved them."
Pros: "Attendants are always nice, flight is always smooth."
Pros: "First class airline. Great flight, great service, and even the food is better than "not bad". Seriously, Singapore Air offers flights between the U.S. and Asia at very competitive rates, but never seems to skimp on customer care. A well-done experience from start to finish..."
Cons: "Delayed two and a half hours! Scheduled flight to take off at 0010hours was already a no brainer. Taking off at 0330hours is a killer!"
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 outstanding"
Cons: "No sound on my entertainment system"
Cons: "I have no complaint"
Pros: "Staff were very friendly, helpful and attentive. Good movie selection. Food was above average for airplane food. Nice modern plane."
Cons: "Headphone buds weren't great. We were delayed two hours taking off, but thankfully my connecting flight was held so no further delay."
Pros: "Crew and entertainment"
Cons: "Very small seats. For full flights they should use the double deck aircrafts. They are much more comfortable. I paid an expensive fair for an old plane which was unfair"
Pros: "Thanks once again for a comfortable flight homs"
Pros: "I liked sleeping for 10 hrs & arriving in AKL ready to roll!"
Cons: "I paid for seats, but there is no record of my purchase at NZ air."
Pros: "Business class lay-flat seats and a private cubby."
Cons: "Boarding required a bus ride to a distant terminal rather than direct boarding from the terminal."
Pros: "Very spacious seats and good entertainment system. Two meals provided. Good blankets provided with pillows. Spacious and clean bathroom."
Cons: "My usb charging plug didn’t work and I wish they sent me an email in advance or told me upon check in what the requirements were that I would have to show upon boarding. I was not prepared to show them my follow on flight schedule (leaving NZ) but I would have been prepared if I had known in advance"
Pros: "The sky couch is always very nice."
Cons: "We told the crew the water tasted funny, like dirt, they said it was fine, just had lemon in it. Pretty sure we know the difference between lemon and dirt taste."
Pros: "The staff was very helpful"
Cons: "Crew was so busy that they kept overlooking my husband and I when doing the rounds of everything, We felt like we were singled out to be ignored, even though we paid for Premium Economy. Our flight was delayed for more than an hour. Food was barely ok even though we had been on Air NZ Premium economy 4 times now, was sorely disappointed with the food provided."
Pros: "Staff were lovely and food good ."
Cons: "Very cramped in window seat, quite claustrophobic really. Not a comfortable 11hr flight."
Pros: "Good seats great staff"
Cons: "Paying for movies not impressed"
Pros: "Good seat, very pleasant crew."
Cons: "No entertainment so can't score that. Basic snacks"
Pros: "I LOVED my flight to LA PERFECT The flight from LA to Auckland was not as good, seating fine, LOVED THE CHECK IN LOVED THE PHONE SERVICE when i called to increase my weight of luggage..."
Cons: "I could not hear the entertainment because engine too loud I did not experience this on my flight to LA , I found the crew were not as pleasant as the crew to LA, could be that they were tired, if i had to rate NZ Airline from my trip to LA.... I would be shouting my pleasrure and did while in LA coming back truly was a different experience however going was so good... I will gladly fly again"
Pros: "Service was very good despite our one hour delay! Everyone was appropriately apologetic though."
Cons: "Flight was one hour delayed not due to equipment but because the ground crew failed to load the cargo in time! That was annoying. (Then an ill patient had to be removed resulting in a further delay trying to retrieve her luggage.) I felt bad for those with tight connections."
Pros: "It was a very pleasant surprise to receive an upgrade at the boarding gate to a Skycouch. While I was too tall to make use of it my wife was able to use two thirds of it and get a good sleep. The flight attendants were excellent, friendly, warm attentive presenting the very best of Kiwi hospitality."
Cons: "Nothing - everything was a shining example as to why Air New Zealand continues to be rated so highly."
Pros: "arrived early at destination ground crew helpful with seating"
Pros: "Most of the flight attendants were helpful and friendly"
Cons: "One of my pet dislikes would be when some passengers have oversized carryon luggage that take up all the room in the overhead compartment of their own and the next one! My bag was about 3 compartments in front of me, which I didn’t mind, until someone tried to claim my bag as theirs..."
Pros: "Very smooth, uneventful flight, perfect, in other words"
Cons: "More leg space should be given to who have height to6”1’ or so."
Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "The chicken pasta meal was pretty dried out and terrible"
Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Vegetarian options were all very similar. Over a 32 hour flight time I was provided with beans for breakfast/lunch and dinner. I would have preferrred more variety. Also being seated between two others was quiet uncomfortable for a long journey flight."
Pros: "The crew were very pleasant and the meal was delicious. The flight was really smooth and most comfortable. Not quite the same leg room as the e dreamer."
Pros: "Excellent gluten free meal offered! I appreciate the extra effort with providing a gf bun and muffin with most meals!"
Pros: "the fare is so cheap ,service is excellent"
Pros: "Really great service from the flight crews - smiley, polite and we were served drinks twice from a 2.5 hrs flight. Entertainment program was great with better leg space. Overall it was a pleasant experience! Thanks"
Cons: "No free movies"
Cons: "Crew forgot to serve us our meal."
Pros: "Food and service good"
Cons: "Had a large person next to me so not much room :-("
Pros: "Everything was ok"
Pros: "The crew were always smiling and helpful. We were allocated the SkyCouch seat which was pretty nice"
Cons: "I double booked the flight on Nov 27 to Sydney from Queenstown through Kayak while I had another flight booked on the same date to Christchurch from Auckland for the same 2 people and Kayak did not warn me that I had already booked the flight on the 27th. It was my fault but I would appreciate if Kayak warned me. Otherwise all is good. Thanks"
Cons: "Missed the flight because of a very late connection. Air New Zealand and Virgin Australia kept handing me off to each other since it was booked as virgin Australia but on an air New Zealand flight. Neither wanted to help at first. Finally virgin Australia ticket agent took pity and helped me rebook for the next day. This was after I was told by air New Zealand that I had to call the booking number for virgin Australia. I’m traveling from the US and didn’t have a cell phone that worked in Australia... which I explained and asked how I could call the number without a phone. Was promptly told to go over to Virgin Australia ticket counter where I made the one remaining agent who was closing the desks help me. However the airport lost my luggage and could not find where it was. I ended up spending three hours in the airport and still no luggage with the baggage company saying they have no record of it anywhere. Very frustrating trip."
Cons: "Air New Zealand needs to manage double door boarding a little differently - a ticket checker needs to be at the split point - to streams of passengers trying to find their seat in opposite directions just doesn't work."
Pros: "The staff lady told me to there’s no food available then I told I need to buy it last time my flight was Jetstar was good even everyone can buy food on board but leta I called Chinese lady understood how I was hungry she brought me bread with batter and coffee that’s was good and best service I always thank to her service"
Pros: "Air NZ are great. Kayak are not,"
Cons: "I couldn’t tell about the food and entertainment because even after several call to Kayak trying to upgrade to a flight where food and entertainment were included because it said “no meal service” on my itinerary I was assured they were included and what do you know. They weren’t. I will never be using Kayak again. Very poor serve from people I phoned. They did no know what they were doing."
Pros: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "The fact that our booking through Kayak did not record we had booked luggage. We KNOW we had booked luggage. Air NZ wanted to charge us $160 each bag. Eventually BYOJet got us through to Virgin who allowed us to buy luggage for $25 per bag. Thank you Virgin for your wonderful assistance 1 1/2 hours before departure. Virgin's standard ticket has 23kg luggage included. What is the problem with a ticket bought online through agents such as BYOJet and Kayak?"
Pros: "As has been my prior experience with Air New Zealand, I found the trip to be virtually flawless. The boarding process was smooth and efficient, the crew was great and seemed to genuinely enjoy their job, the food was good, and I had lots of choices on the IFE system. For flying cattle class on a 15 hour flight, I arrived reasonably rested and content."
Cons: "My only complaint is that the extra $60 I had to pay in order to get a window seat got me just that. There was no additional room either length- or width-wise and no other advantages other than the window. I would not pay for that "privilege" again and I'm sorry to see that ANZ has stooped to the level of its American counterparts."
Pros: "I was recovering from a cold and didn't anticipate having ear problems but during decent I began to experience some pain. It was all new to me as I had never been through this before. Fortunately the crew was kind and they provided a sinus decongestant in a cup for me to sniff and breath in so the smell could open up my nasal passages and it helped a bit."
Cons: "The sharp decent while arriving."
Pros: "Really quite comfortable seat and space wise Good to see entertainment still in the back seat"
Pros: "Happy helpful crew"
Cons: "Slow to board and no gate on arrival. Had to be bused to terminal and waited ten minutes for the bus to arrive."
Pros: "Quick, efficient service"
Pros: "Friendly crew, good in-flight entertainment"
Cons: "Flight was running about a half hour late"
Pros: "The capitan spoke and explain that was perfect taking into account that was a cloudy day."
Cons: "Fixed arm rests in the bassinet row. We had extra seats which was a lovely surprise but it was not much help as the arm rests don't move. Won't pay for that row again as my bub was just a bit too heavy for the bassinet."
Pros: "Getting on was a delight in Wellington. Having two set of doors open was great."
Cons: "Getting off in Auckland, only the front doors open so took what felt like ages to get off."
Pros: "Food, space, service. Arrived much more rested than in economy."
Cons: "Using a 777 meant longer check in time and was much longer arrival time and baggage collection. Meant I was stuck in Auckland traffic because of the extra time"
Pros: "Everything was on time, comfortable & smooth, online checkin was clear & easy. Helpful, responsive staff at every level. A million times better than my other travel leg with United (but that's nothe saying much...)"
Cons: "Seats were more cramped than usual"
Pros: "All flights were on time and all worked well. The booking of the flight via kayak and payment via vayama was a week long process that involved lots of calls to their customer service which couldn't help their poor website and in the process the flight price rose 3 times, so next time, I'll better book directly with Lufthansa and save some nightmares."
Cons: "Full plane, no options to spread out."
Pros: "I was most impressed with the lovely flight attendants who were friendly and very kind and caring with my young adult daughter who has flying anxiety. They were so fantastic and really made a difference to her flight."
Cons: "People allowed to bring on too much carry on that will not fit so we all wait in the aisle behind them . Dumb."
Pros: "The crew was kind and friendly"
Cons: "Cushions could have been better. Butt got sore"
Pros: "The views from the plane"
Cons: "A bit more room"
Pros: "Free food great movies very comfortable"
Pros: "The crew was very lovely in flight, the ground crew in Portland did as well as they could under the circumstances"
Cons: "I arrived an hour before my flight- after boarding began they closed the doors to reboot the engines and try and "fix" a problem with the landing gear. The flight kept being delayed with no explanation of whether or not it would even fly. We were told missed connections would be dealt with but they weren't. It ended up two hours late, had I known I would have gone to eat somewhere and avoided the terrible egg mushroom thing served on the flight. After landing , many were left with no idea how to get to their destinations and no recourse. The crew was great in the flight, though. Whoever maintains your aircraft should make sure problematic aircraft not be used to transport tens of thousands of your dollars. Very disappointing, considering this was my first flight with Hawaiian, I had heard they were the best. Noteworthy though, that my trip TO Portland with your airline was top notch. The return, however , leaves me with a bad taste and I don't think I will choose it again"
Pros: "Crew was good, seats were decent."
Pros: "I always enjoy flying Hawaiian to Hawaii since the experience starts on the plane. And their kind service helps lots. The pilot was good also, with extremely smooth take off and landing and alerting to turbulence."
Cons: "Very little to my thinking"
Pros: "Early departure early arrival"
Cons: "Food options, more prompt service,"
Pros: "Staff were friendly."
Pros: "I loved the headrests that could bend so it cushioned your head while you were sleeping. I also loved the tablet/ phone holder on the bs k of the seat."
Cons: "The breakfast sandwich wasn’t the best."
Cons: "Honestly, you used to get a pillow and blanket. Now you get nothing. I know it's probably something that will never come back, but it's a nice touch. Otherwise, really satisfied with the flight experience."
Cons: "Entertainment for a 6 hour flight would've made sense."
Pros: "Crew was great. Seats were comfy. Flight was overall very pleasant!"
Cons: "First time landed at gate E in terminal 1. Proceeded through terminal and down to baggage claim. Went down and found no baggage anywhere. No flight on arrivals board and had to go to terminal 2! Agents said the state doesn't allow Hwn to list the portland flight? Please have signage clear."
Pros: "Good complimentary cocktail"
Cons: "Delay leaving and delay to get fate after landing slowed things down."
Cons: "Nothing I did not like, all went well."
Pros: "Crew. Space. Food."
Pros: "The complimentary guava rum punch was amazing! The flight attendants were helpful and friendly. Comfortably equipped planes!"
Pros: "Crew was excellent."
Cons: "No entertainment, AWFUL food, uncomfortable seata"
Pros: "Professional customer service!!!"
Pros: "Individual seat-back screens"
Pros: "They made frequent announcements when there was turbulence compared to other airlines!"
Cons: "Vegan food would be nice option because even non-vegans can eat it too"
Pros: "The crew and boarding process."
Cons: "No available entertainment/WiFi besides purchasing it"
Pros: "the breakfast was good and the crew were very nice"
Cons: "The free entertainment choices were terrible"
Pros: "Fantastic in comparison to the many I have flown. Service was great, up graded economic seats had plenty of room and were fairly comfortable. Nice big plane. I did feel swished in like a sardine."
Pros: "New plane, friendly, congenial staff. Prompt service."
Cons: "Wifi service didn't work. Leg room between seats is atrocious. For the price we paid & the length of this flights, they can do better than that."
Pros: "Extra comfort seats were nice. Meal was nice."
Cons: "I don’t want to watch ads on the plane. I already bought the darn ticket. Don’t make me watch ads."
Cons: "need to pay for each movie not one fee as on many other airlines or free on Alaska airlines food was awful croissant was dry as a desert wind not a single free beer or wine and i paid for the extra leg room"
Pros: "We were able to upgrade our seating to first class which made all the difference in the comfort level of the long flight."
Cons: "The food was okay but could have been better. We had booked a separate flight from Kona to Honolulu and then took another flight from Honolulu to Papeete. The customer service agent in Kona was able to book out baggage straight through to Papeete which saved us the hassle of picking up baggage in Honolulu and checking it in again."
Pros: "Crew was nice, we had free breakfast (yogurt, grapes, granola, and bread), and seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The movies they provided on the screen you had to pay $8 each to watch."
Pros: "People were nice and accommodating."
Cons: "Seats were worn out and uncomfortable. Entertainment was expensive."
Pros: "I love the comfort of the Airbus. It is much better than the old HA planes the last time I flew Hawaiian."
Cons: "I think the movie prices are way too much. A lot of airlines offer free entertainment."
Pros: "Same as flight from the Big Island to Maui."
Cons: "Seats, for a 6'2" passenger, are aggravating on a long flight."
Pros: "The blanket and inflatable pillow were a home run with my wife and row mates."
Cons: "Rock hard seats and after 6 hours we were done. May need to get fat?"
Cons: "It was way too hot. No airflow on the plane."
Pros: "Crew was great. Charming, helpful and welcoming."
Cons: "When we boarded, our flight attendant moved us to another seat because the tablet display apparatus wasn’t functioning. We were flying Business Class from HNL to AKL. The seat I was moved to wasn’t “banging on 8 cylinders” either. When you splurge on Business Class, it’s very disappointing to have Systems not working."
Pros: "Got there on time,courteous crew, comfortable seat. Have flown Hawaiian before, will fly Hawaiian again, its always been good."
Pros: "The timing of the meals, the flavorful food and the listening choices. The night goggles were quite helpful."
Cons: "Sitting that long."
Cons: "Food and entertainment"
Pros: "We didn't crash"
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable, the provided food was almost worth paying to not eat it was so bad."
Pros: "Crew was very nice!"
Cons: "It was freezing. Please carry something warm or be ready to shell out $7 for a blanket!"
Pros: "Very pleasant flight flight attendants very pleasant and proffesional"
Cons: "In the past I have had bad expierence not with the flight crew but with the custumer service representatives behind the counter They are very unproffesional and rude I only fly Hawaiin if I dont have to interact with them and itis yhe Kahalui airport Wilma"
Pros: "It wasn't to bad a bit camped, the seats are right. The crew was lovely the food could be better but other than the screaming kids it was ok"
Cons: "Food choices could be better"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1+ hour. The ticketing agents were rude when we inquired about re-scheduling a connecting flight. They were not accommodating at all. They required purchase of in-flight movies. Next time I'm flying Alaska, at least the movies are free."
Cons: "Somehow I was not assigned the seat I choose. The flight attendant offered for me to speak with an agent but I stayed in the newly assigned middle seat."
Pros: "I liked the free meals that were served. The extra food I received from the stewardess and fellow passengers. The Hawaiian atmosphere that pervaded the plane. The quiet engines. The nice wide A330 that felt secure crossing the ocean. I would recommend Hawaiian airlines to anybody. I would suggest direct flights from the east coast and midwest."
Cons: "the one hour delay"
Pros: "Great crew. Friendly and efficient. Always on time and organized."
Cons: "Choice of movies. Too old."
Pros: "It was spacious seats were somewhat comfortable"
Cons: "I thought the Leia were included in the price we paid for flight. Sad that their was no free in flight entertainment. Flights I've flown on other airlines traveling way less time have free entertainment. It's too long of a flight to not be entertained."
Pros: "Free food"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "The gate attendants in Portland were very helpful and friendly, and the air crew were very accommodating on the flight"
Cons: "I was expecting something a little more traditional Hawaiian for my meal, or at least an option for something more traditional. For the entertainment, it would be nice to have a chess or card game free of charge. Seriously, does EVERYTHING have to be "pay to play"?"
Cons: "No vegetarian food option. Seat uncleaned. Last seat on plane separate from family with people constantly standing next to and bumping at toilets - little consideration fro Covid-19"
Cons: "For a flagship airline, a in seat screen should be a given. This is not a budget airline."
Cons: "I was booked on flight QF 74 from San Francisco, connecting in Sydney (3 hour connection) to Queenstown, New Zealand. When I went to check in I was told that I needed a transit visa for Australia because of my Indian Passport. When I booked the flight back in September, it was not a requirement to have a transit Visa. I was told by the Qantas supervisor that this was a new requirement as of October for Indian and Chinese passport holders even with brief connections. 9 people were in a similar situation the day before and denied boarding. I understand that things change, but I am very disappointed in the service provided to me. Of course, they could not help me get an evisa for Australia, but they were not even willing to help me search for it rebook a Qantas flight connecting in a different city/country. They did not even connect me with online reservations directly to quickly do something to be able to continue on my journey. They only gave me a phone number to call and sent me away. I tried the number and was on hold for almost an hour. Luckily, my friends were on a different flight on Air New Zealand that had seats leaving in 2 hours, and I almost missed that waiting to talk to someone from Qantas. I booked a ticket with Air New Zealand (by talking to their checkin agent, who was able to connect me directly with a reservations agent via a direct line, which was something I was hoping Qantas would help me with at a bare minimum) and I was able to purchase a ticket for that Air NZ flight and continue on. I’m VERY disappointed in the way that I was treated and not provided with assistance in a timely manner. I would have almost missed that flight and have to miss out on pre-arranged travel plans losing out on an additional $2000 in tour / accommodation bookings."
Pros: "Very comfortable flight. The full range of entertainment made the time go quickly. Professional crew."
Cons: "I know it's an airplane, but even so, the food was astonishingly bad."
Pros: "Crew were helpful and very nice. However, as first experience flying internationally with Qantas wasn’t positive.. very proud to be Australian but their mechanical faults doesn’t help in customer loyalty."
Cons: "Flight delayed due to mechanical faults for 4 hours. $15 meal voucher is not sufficient to cover the cost of proper meal. Airlines if allocating seats automatically should not put a female in between two males, not a very nice experience. No option to amend seat."
Pros: "Very friendly crew."
Pros: "Crew was great! food was good entertainment was good"
Cons: "Economy seats very small and uncomfortably. Unable to get any rest on 14 hour flight. I will pay extra next time but online description made it sound better than was"
Pros: "Great flight. Efficient and great service."
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable.. glad it was only a few hours."
Cons: "We boarded very late, and had no place to wait at the gate (it was locked off) and got no explanation. My headrest broke off midflight. There were no good vegetarian options on the flight, and the entertainment system was very old and hard to see."
Pros: "good seat"
Cons: "rude crew and unsanitary bathroom"
Pros: "Fast boarding and great entertainment."
Cons: "Food was sparse and water hard to come by. The ability of passengers in front to deeply recline their seats made the flight uncomfortable and claustrophobic."
Pros: "Kind crew"
Cons: "Food is terrible."
Pros: "Everything went well. boarding and check in."
Cons: "Seat spacing: way too close in economy. When person in front puts seat back, could not stand up to get out of seat. Got leg cramps trying to shuffle out sideways stooped over row of seats in front and rear hitting faces of occupants in my row. Refuse to fly on this airline any more until reasonable seat spacing is provided for price paid. Don't like standing up the whole flight because one cannot get into or out of seat."
Cons: "Very good airlines"
Pros: "The crew was spectacular. Could not have been more friendly and helpful. Went out of their way to provide great service. The food was great, especially the breakfast!"
Cons: "The coach seats were wide enough, but a couple of more inches leg room would have been better."
Pros: "Consistently good"
Cons: "2,hr delay - weather"
Pros: "all automatic check in without any stress"
Cons: "service is prefunctory without heart"
Cons: "I told Nicole that my sound wasn’t working and I had tried with 3 different headsets. She just shrugged her shoulders and walked away. Not good enough for the price you pay for Qantas. I travel with qantas all the time and have never received service like this."
Pros: "FLIGHT TIME"
Cons: "UNCOMFORTABLE SEATS , NO SEATS FOR FAMILIES TO SIT TOGETHER"
Pros: "Direct flight from Sydney to San Francisco. Good price, on sale."
Cons: "Leg room okay unless person in front puts there seat back and then it is almost impossible to be comfortable, even if you put your seat back. Food distribution is done in mysterious ways. Movies were the same coming and going even though it was more than a month between flights."
Cons: "The airport closure wasn't PALs fault but the absolute lack of organisation and an attitude "act of God so look after yourself" is disgusting. Flying business expected some service but had nothing and they smiled and said they rebooked me 16 days later. Other airlines would book you on different carriers but not PAL. Last time no matter what special deal they offer."
Pros: "Pillow and blanket made the trip much for comfortable"
Pros: "Fantastic. the crew was very kind and professional. Food was the best airplane food I have had so far."
Pros: "The staff on the flight was fine."
Cons: "When I went to transfer flight to Perth there was an agent at the security who found that I had a wallet ninja and showed him it just threw it in the trash without asking me what my options were. Had an attitude when I asked what the heck? He was totally rude and ruined my perception of the Qantas staff."
Cons: "Very old plane, entertainment pathetic. Seats bad Time to retire plane.."
Cons: "I left my jacket on the plane and didn't notice until I'd gone through customs (about 20 minutes after leaving the plane). There was NO way to contact Quantas or go back or do anything to get my clothing back. No one at the airport had any suggestions for me. The airport phone that dialed Quantas was only for frequent flyer point inquiries. I have now been trying for a full day (three phone calls with zero helpfulness) to see if anything can be done. I understand that I made the mistake of forgetting my items but the 17 hour flight left me a bit spacey. I am super frustrated."
Pros: "There was an excellent selection of movies to choose from. Breakfast was actually pretty tasty, and snacks and water were offered quite frequently. The seat was reasonably comfortable, and reclines back a decent way. For how huge the plane was, the boarding process was super fast and efficient!"
Cons: "Seats were still rather cramped for my poor husband, who is 6'3. It is very hard to get out of your seat if you're in a window and all the seats on front are fully reclined, and I am relatively spry! Can't imagine an elderly or debilitated person trying to do so! The in flight movies were great, but you had to use the headphones they provide, and none of the 3 pairs I tried worked well. All had constant static. Although the seats recline far, they also do it abruptly and are hard to get to come back up. The dinner (we had the beef) was not very good. The quality of the ground beef was what you would expect from a fast food place. The worst part of the flight was that the sat ALL the infants in the same area on the plane, and all right around us. 5 of them, to be exact. 17 hours of on and off screaming babies! My husband had to move to a different seat to get some sleep! Thankfully, I can sleep through anything. Overall, less terrible than I expected a 17 hour flight to be, but could have been better. Some crew were very nice and helpful and others not so much. The first woman my husband asked told him (rather abruptly) that he wouldn't be able to use his CPAP machine. Then a really nice guy helped him get it set up. The turbulence was a bit scary for me, and the way the captain would announce it didn't help! He'd just say "all passengers and crew be seated and fasted your seat belts" in a rather grim tone as the plane shook violently."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "Leg room is tight in economy"
Pros: "Quick & friendly"
Cons: "Not given the right information. Almost missed connecting flight to Vancouver,because of waiting at the carrousel. For luggage that wasn't going to show up. Asked a security person about it. She radioed my #s in. Then told me it's still in Melbourne . A security issue. Now I'm about to miss my conecting flight. Don't worry you can catch the next one. At night, it's 8 am. Then only to find out I'm to go from terminal 1 to 3. Had 10 min. together there and go threw customs. Ran with injured knee."
Pros: "The staff was so attentive and friendly"
Cons: "The seats could use a little more leg room"
Pros: "Smoothed on time. Flight attendants not tired and grumpy"
Pros: "Good price and pleasantly surprised with Quantas (first time flying with them)"
Cons: "I didn't get to choose my seats this time so I got stuck in middles both ways"
Pros: "In flight crew"
Cons: "Disregard for chosen seats and unwillingness to reinstate them."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Assistant at luggage drop off was very pleasant and helpful"
Pros: "Staff was nice."
Cons: "I fly many airlines. I had never flow Qantas before. I was expecting it to be amazing and it was not. The seats are very uncomfortable and not roomy compared to other airlines. Food was terrible."
Pros: "Ok selection of TV content. Pilot focussed on getting us to Perth quickly."
Cons: "Crew put lights out right after take off - hoping to shut us up and keep us out of the way. Poor movie selection due to streaming limitations (license issues for wireless streaming of content)"
Pros: "Overall a great plane- we were on the 380 going to lax and then we switched to a really old plane. There was a delay of 3 hours from lax which was very annoying."
Cons: "The delay was horrifying. Staff were friendly enough but they really should have offered more snacks and water"
Cons: "9 hour delay and zero assistance rearranging car rentals, hotels, EXPENSIVE transfer between airport terminals"
Pros: "Crew wa very pleasant and willing to help"
Cons: "Old plane, food was average, luggage wasn't sent first as it usually is for business class and had to wait forever to pick it up"
Cons: "I landed in Sydney but had a Qantas connecting flight to Melbourne. The baggage was checked in at Dallas thru to Melbourne. You need to drop off the baggage back to Qantas after clearing Customs in Sydney. Unfortunately Qantas makes you walk quite a long distance to to baggage drop off point. The experience made me think of experiences I have had in developing countries. I expected more thoughtful logistical arrangements from Qantas in Australia."
Pros: "Our boarding & flight crew were excellent. They went above & beyond to help us through the delay that ocutred due to engine cover repairs."
Cons: "I was told LAX would have corrected flight/boarding info upon arrival. They did not. They made us wait & go through 2 lines that made us miss any connection home. The rep was inexperienced & slow. I had to spend the night in LA & had to pay someone $500 to work at my store in my stead. Ended up negative experience. ."
Pros: "Crew on the plane was a group of wonderful ladies. Always smiling & pleasant, even when they had to move people around. Great service with a smile."
Cons: "No info ahead of time about checking in. Once we got to the airport, I was told that I should have known better & checked in 24 hours prior. initially, the agent said that all seats are appropriated randomly. At the gate, I'm told different. I had to fight tooth & nail to get a seat next to my wife (who often gets airsick). It didn't feel good to have to argue & make a scene to accomplish this."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant and helpful."
Pros: "Cleanliness, really courteous staff, comfortable seats, entertainment from an app :-)"
Pros: "Attentive crew Loved that they ranged in ages and races I also loved that the crew were helpful and cheery Crew interacted with my daughter well and always stopped to talk or smile at my daughter as they walked past Qantas are truly the best!"
Pros: "It was nice that the flight was not full and we were able to stretch out in neighbouring seats. It was nice that the lights were left low for longer than a night's sleep, as not everyone wants to sleep at the same time on such a long flight."
Cons: "The food service was slow, and refills were not offered as has been the case on many other trans Pacific flights I have been on. Also we did not receive the mid flight snack that was listed on the menu. The meals themselves were not as tasty, varied, nor as filling as those on Fiji Airways and United Airlines. My dinner had only pasta with sauce in the container, with no other vegetable offered. I was still hungry after eating my breakfast, and I was only offered tea, when I expected both a choice of juice and tea."
Pros: "The flight crew were friendly, the flight left on time, food good and cabin clean."
Cons: "Had a jumpy screen for a while and the headsets were a bit sensitive with the sound dropping on and off. The controls were on the top of the arm rest which my husband kept accidentally knocking. Changing channels, turning up the volume etc."
Pros: "Everything! In the past year, I have flown on 9 flights with Qantas between the US and Australia. Each and every every flight has been comfortable and enjoyable. The flight crew is always friendly and accommodating, the food is satisfactory and I've never experienced a delay. Keep up the wonderful service."
Pros: "Qantas Airlines really made traveling a pleasure. The little extras like, chocolate snacks, ice cream, a huge selection of entertainment, the most current navigation systems that allowed you to know and see at ever minute exactly where you were on the journey, just to name a few. I also found the staff especially pleasant. Thank you Qantas"
Cons: "Our plane home was a little older and the seats weren't as comfortable as they could have been."
Offer better food options . Even if for purchase
Wasn't a very good selection of entertainment. The chairs were a bit uncomfortable.

Pros: "Went very smoothly. Very comfortable."
Cons: "Can't think of anything."
Pros: "Plane was clean & modern"
Cons: "More leg room"
Cons: "Stop charging for checked bags"
Pros: "They got me an air sick bag since there were none in the pockets. Bathroom was very clean. Chair had bendy headrests. Didn’t have to check my bag."
Cons: "Very turbulent, seat did not stay reclined. On a redeye flight, this was the key misery-maker. Seat in front was reclined so no possible position to sleep from the middle seat, even for a short person."
Pros: "Seat 4 A. The flight attendant working first class was very attent"
Pros: "In flight service was fast and well organized. The dinner was very good. Flight was turbulent free and no isues."
Cons: "The plane was at the gate but it took over an hour for international inspection and a long time for the plane to be cleaned."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable but crowded. Was nice to have the built in screen for entertainment."
Cons: "Did not like being bumped to a flight with a five hour layover in SLC. Travel day was already very long. We booked the flight originally based on the shorter layover of an hour and a half. Seemed very inconsiderate."
Pros: "Flight attendants thank SkyMiles members by name at some point during the trip, very friendly."
Pros: "Every seat had an entertainment screen, with a variety games, movies, or flight information available."
Cons: "The flight arrived 20 minutes early (win), but we then proceeded to have to wait about 15 minutes to pull into the gate because the previous plane handing left yet."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Hot in the plane and the landing was uncomfortable"
Pros: "Everything was good except for the entertainment consul for one of our seats."
Cons: "The entertainment consul for one of our seats kept going out and had to be restarted 4 times. It still didn’t work properly but we gave up trying to get it fixed."
Pros: "great trip and crew"
Pros: "Direct flight on time"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "The pilot, Mr. Howes, I believe, came out and personally thanked everyone for flying Delta. It was a nice touch to see the actual pilot that was flying and me home and that he shared his gratitude. Go DELTA!!"
Pros: "The crew members were excellent and efficient. Europe was fabulous."
Cons: "9+ hours in the air is never fun when you're in economy class: humans have gotten bigger as airline seats grow smaller."
Pros: "Movies selection were good, snacks were pretty good"
Cons: "Why make someone pay for an upgraded seat that doesn’t recline? Terrible. Also delayed the flight by an hour, no explanation, and no idea if connections would be made or not. Had to run to my connection and they almost didn’t let me on. Smh"
Pros: "Delta worked with us on rebooking a flight after we messed up. Onboard the staff was incredibly friendly and the free snack selection was decent (even gluten free treats). Boarding was an orderly process."
Pros: "The service was excellent."
Pros: "Excellent Service."
Pros: "I like everything!! From now on I'm going to travel with Aeromexico Very comfortable great service friendly."
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "I will make it my sole purpose to let everyone I know and review this on every site. Kayak messed up our flights so badly and then would not fix them. I spent 4 hours being bounced between airlines and travel sites just to be screwed with for a mistake Kayak made and would not fix. Worst company ever!"
Pros: "ATL based crew was great. Exit row extra room as promised"
Cons: "Cheese snack purchased was not up to par. Grapes soft, almonds mealy and cheese dried out. Disappointing. New faster Wi-Fi was intermittent at best. Down for long stretches."
Pros: "Got to fly on the a brand new 737-900 and had plenty of room to fit my laptop so I could work. Friendly crew, didn't feel like a farm animal being herded on to a transport to be taken to slaughter like I do on other airlines."
Cons: "In flight WiFi was inoperable for most of the flight making it hard to work."
Pros: "It got me there in one piece. USB ports, entertainment system a good distraction."
Cons: "Terrible food, aisles too tight, seats not very comfortable. 777’s are very noisy. Visas on arrival a ridiculous disaster- 100’s of people standing in lines for over an hour while 3 people slowly stamp your passport. Know that is not the airline’s fault!"
Pros: "Easy boarding, Love to the sad that you were not nickeled and dimed while in flight they provided wonderful food and snacks. The crew so friendly and very hard working constantly there to please the passengers also having Free movies made the 5 and a 1/2 hour flight go very quickly. I fly across country frequently I will always fly Delta."
Cons: "Gate attendant was extraordinarily rude"
Pros: "Crew were good, flight on time, free drinks"
Cons: "TSA Pre-check info not loaded on flight from LAX to PDX."
Pros: "Typical flight, all went well. Special services picked me up at the plane."
Cons: "Condition of the airplane"
Pros: "Friendliness of the staff"
Cons: "No complaints. I wish that the updates on the flight delay were a little clearer, but that's about it."
Pros: "Getting to the correct destination."
Cons: "The fact that the lack of knowledge regarding international travel visas by the counter staff and supervisor meant that two days of the vacation were lost. Upon arrival in China the 144 hour travel visa was granted with no problem within minutes, but the U.S. staff was completely befuddled by the possibility. The interrogation was completely stressful and resulted in a reschedule of the original flight and during the second attempt at flying even an email from the U.S. consulate with a link to the Shanghai/Chinese government immigration site was deemed "not official enough". i will be expecting proper compensation. I was once given an $850 travel voucher for voluntarily giving up my seat, and was flown first class to Hawaii, given 4 star accomodation and then flown first class on to China within 48 hours. This was an involuntary bump from our chosen flight time, all because of a lack of knowledge about current visa regulations and international law on the part of the check in staff. We have been loyal Delta users for over 15 years, and this was the biggest blunder ever. Also humiliating and extremely frustrating, stressful and a big problem with fulfilling our travel plans between son and father."
Pros: "I liked the in-flight service and the complimentary snacks and drinks despite the short trip."
Cons: "I did not like that there was not enough room for our 50L Osprey backpacks to be placed under the seats."
Pros: "Smooth flight; informative crew"
Pros: "The crew and the flight were all very pleasant. Highly recommended."
Cons: "Unfortunately the trip was marred by being stuck on the tarmac for the better part of an hour while we waited for out gate. Even when it became available however, we were forced to wait while ATC sent every other plain taxiing through our route which was clearly visible from our vantage point. Not an issue with Delta per se but nonetheless it left us all exhausted and frustrated."
Pros: "Professional and efficient"
Cons: "I am 5'3". My feet never touch the floor, which is quite uncomfortable after about an hour."
Pros: "Crew was wonderful"
Cons: "Nothing- good flight, I couldn't sleep but that wasn't your fault"
Pros: "Delta has a good business product. The entertainment system was good. The food was good."
Cons: "The business class crew struck me as distracted and putout to be there."
Cons: "Snacks if possible"
Cons: "I chose my seats when I purchased tickets thru Expedia. Then for some reason Delta wouldn't allow me to keep my seats and I had to have them assigned at boarding. Why? What causes this? I was stuck in the back of the small jet from Minneapolis to Cwa when there were a few open seats in the middle. Disappointed. I won't be choosing Delta in the future!"
Pros: "I trusted Delta to take of my clients; Delta usually did. Rather, the employees of Delta did. Now when I travel, I prefer Delta (when they aren't too much more economically). Let me change that to I used to prefer Delta, because the times, they are achanging. My home airport is Atlanta, I'm usually traveling to Seattle or Portland; Delta is king in those routes. There's more flight time options, and the entertainment available is better."
Cons: "Here's where the picky comes in. I downloaded the 'Go Go" wifi app beforehand. When I tried to connect I received a message that it wasn't available on my routes. Why couldn't they tell me that it might not work on my routes before they took my money? Further, why wasn't it available? It's not like I was going on a multi city/country trip, this was Atlanta to Portland non-stop. Then there's the 'Premier Seating". I opted for it on my outbound flight and received TSA Pre Check. I didn't buy the seating coming back; I did not receive TSA Pre Check. Coincidence? My fare was more than Alaska Airlines was offering it for, I paid for the wifi that didn't work, and in order to avoid the back of the plane, you must pay. So, I guess I'll be going to Alaska Airlines. They don't have as many flights, but I don't feel dinged for more money every time I turn around."
