Pros: "The service was excellent"
Pros: "They passed by me when they served the meals because they thought I had it already which it was someone behind me who got his meal since he had a special meal request. So I ended up to talk to them that I haven’t had my meal yet. It was embarrassing moment for me. They seemed thinking that I lied to them."
Cons: "They are well trained crews so I have no better ideas about improvements"
Cons: "In flight food service by cabin crew was spotty, sometimes they gave you coffee with dinner , sometime not, they are very forgetful. Please improve on this issue."

Cons: "Many entertainment monitors including my row of seats were stuck for a while. The “please fasten your seatbelt” was on the screen and made the monitor unusable for the first 1hr of the flight"
Pros: "Yes and yes"
Cons: "Not sure because I have never had a better experience."
Cons: "WiFi didn’t work on 3 of the 4 flights although all purportedly had it. Also didn’t work the majority of the time in the Business Class Lounge in Singapore. Food was mediocre both on flights and in the lounge. Movie selection could hardly have been worse."
Pros: "The crew was terrific. Always smiling and helpful."
Cons: "If you need more space economy is a tight fit. It would be better to upgrade."
Pros: "Service was excellent!"
Cons: "Softer seats and more movies"
Pros: "Great crew and cabin!"
Cons: "Meals were just ok"
Cons: "We had to go through security after coming in from international and I went through a biometric scanner which I’ve done 100’s of Times I was very unnecessarily felt up for 10 minutes. I had shorts and a T-shirt on, and was pretty sure after the 1st round of groping that there was nothing there"
Pros: "Got bumped to Business Class"
Pros: "The service is exceptional!"
Pros: "Cabin crew was excellent and the premium economy seat was very comfortable and accommodating. The choice of food from the variety menu was also delicious."
Pros: "Same as my trip to Japan. Crew was great, boarding was easy, seats were pretty comfortable, food was great, and entertainment awesome. Gave socks and toothbrush amenities, along with the normal pillow and blanket."

Cons: "My son did not like any of the meal selections between beef and fish. We asked for a ramen noodle cup instead that the flight crew denied they had, only after seeing them offer it to another family just seconds before. I was very disappointed!! I believe the flight attendant knew of my concerns because she started asking me if the service was ok. If your doing a good job, then you won’t have to ask."
Cons: "We were not provided vegetarian food on two legs of journey although we had earlier informed the airlines."
Pros: "The crew were excellent"
Cons: "I'm 6'2" and the regular economy seats didn't give me enough to leg room"
Pros: "The plane had decent leg room, the food was great, service was excellent. I have no complaints. Snacks were handed out pretty regularly which was great. In flight entertainment was good too. I'll definitely fly Singapore again, I liked it better than other Asian airlines."

Pros: "The service, kind and pleasant."
Pros: "I ordered a Indian vegeterian meal. It was very good. I feel bad about all the playin cups, and garbage that gets wasted. Please recycle everything."
Cons: "The plane was very cold. A lot of movies were offered but I couldn't find anything I wanted to watch."
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."
Pros: "Everything was pretty great. Crew is very nice. Food was very good actually. 2 meals with snacks when asked. Hot towels were given a couple of times. Drinks were served and offered throughout the flight. Socks and toothbrush also given. Entertainment was great with a good mix of movies. Chairs were comfy and leg space was ok."
Cons: "I don't think I would complain about the space otherwise except that the person in front of me decided to recline their chair all the way back. It was a tight and fairly uncomfortable ride the rest of the time."
Pros: "Some of the Korean food was tasty The flight wasn't full so we had a spare seat between us, That made economy barely tolerable."
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: "I traveled Premium Economy. It was well worth the extra cost over regular Economy. The food was great, the crew was great, the flight was very comfortable."
Pros: "Not much turbulence"
Pros: "The food is good. The service is excellent, always smiling and attentive."
Cons: "Not enough quantity of each type of food. I did not get the cold noodle I want and end up eating sandwiches."
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: "Both ways I had a whole row to myself, great attendants, in flight screens and charging stations at your seat, frequent meals"
Cons: "Clean bathroom trash more often"
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: "Ice cream for snack? Heck YES. Variety of meals to choose from (i got hindu meal)"
Cons: "On the way to Korea, a stewardess keep taking my water away thinking i was done with it. It was very nice of her she tries to take trashes away, but it wasn't trash for me."
Pros: "The attendants were helpful, smiling and friendly. The entire time We flew with an 18 month old and they came looking for us before he flight to help us carry our stuff on board. They gave her a toy, asked for her name, and checked on us often. They also gave my husband and I an option for early food service so that one of us could help our daughter eat. The movie selection was great. Take off, flight and landing were smooth. And we arrive half an hour early both directions!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Excellent service by flight crew. Good selection for entertainment. Flight was enjoyable."
Pros: "Great service, great experience."
Cons: "I liked it all."
Pros: "Best economy experience I've ever had. The cabin crew is very attentive, constantly coming around with drinks and water refills. They also had decent light snacks in case you were hungry between meals. I also loved the chairback setup and the entertainment unit. If flying economy, Singapore will be my airline of choice."
Cons: "Food was meh. Above average, but still not amazing."
Pros: "Check in and boarding were flawless. The flight left about one hour late. The seats in coach are getting smaller and smaller. I got an aisle seat to have a little extra room (I'm 6'1") only to get hit big time by the food cart (they did apologize). The food was plentiful, but mediocre at best. The flight attendants were working hard, but we're abrupt and tired. Overall, I have three stars, when in the past, flying SA was always a five star experience. It got me back home though. :)"
Pros: "Great food!!"
Pros: "The staff was amazing and attentive. My surfboards arrived safe and sound... And on time. I will most definitely fly Singapore Airlines again, as often as I can. Thank you."
Pros: "Service was outstanding. The staff was attentive and helpful from start to finish."
Cons: "Not all the food was to my personal taste. I understand however that being on a flight to and from Asia would lean toward choices more characteristic to the region."
Pros: "Flight crew we're attentive and anticipated issues. The flight was smooth and the lavatories were clean and stocked. Love the hot towels at the beginning and end of the flight."
Cons: "Not much to be honest. I suppose if I could say anything it would the seats in economy are a bit cramped, but that's to be expected."
Pros: "Comfortable seats."
Cons: "We were supposed to fly back to Los Angeles from Tokyo on Wednesday, August 24th. We got to Tokyo Narita a little later than planned due to the Narita Express train being delayed. I had received emails that our flight had changed gates, and was then delayed, but when my sister and I went to check into our flight, we were told we were unable to board because it was too late. I thought it was absurd because the flight had not even started boarding, and I had gotten an email saying it was delayed. We tried to reason with them, but they would not let us on the flight. It was imperative that we got back to Los Angeles on Wednesday, but all our plans were ruined due to them bumping us off the flight. My sister had a connecting flight to Boston, which she then had to reschedule and was charged for. We were stuck another night in Tokyo, where we had to spend money on a hotel. The Singapore Airlines attendants eventually informed us that we could get on a flight the next day. This delayed us by 24 hours, which was highly inconvenient. It was also especially unnecessary since due to the flight being delayed, we would have absolutely been able to make it. I do not appreciate being bumped off of a flight due to airlines wanting to make more money, especially being stuck overseas. Its not like it was a domestic flight where we could just hop on another one in the next few hours, this totally derailed all of our plans. I do not appreciate the inflexibility of the Singapore Airlines agents, and this is not an experience that makes me want to recommend flying with Singapore Airlines. I appreciate that they did not charge us, however it was a major inconvenience that could have simply been avoided by better customer service and understanding."
Pros: "EVA does a nice job getting all of the service out and making sure you have everything you want."
Cons: "If you are a big guy upgrade to exit row or economy plus. This is an airline that doesn’t generally serve people that are over 6’ or 200 lbs."

Cons: "Most seats have reclining problems. Very stiff and difficult to adjust."

Cons: "A boarding pass ahd to be printed at the airport"
Pros: "Short lay over"

Pros: "Staff was very helpful. They went above and beyond."
Pros: "Great service by the crew / flight attendants! Good food (to me) We lucked out due to not a full flight"

Pros: "I'm 6'1" I guess I'm too big. I'm of athletic build and even in the isle seat I was touching shoulders w the next person"
Cons: "We could not get our seats assigned prior to check-in, and therefore had middle seats for a 12 hour flight."
Pros: "Entertainment and arrived 1 hr early as scheduled."
Cons: "No priority boarding for passenger with kids. Beverages needs to be offered routinely. Passenger should be served wirh food, awake or not. No loot bag offered to children."
Cons: "check in at SFO was chaotic on the outbound flight, and the guy at the counter really fought me on the price of my surfboard bag. he wanted to charge me $300, when it was really only $100 for the size of bag I had. I called ahead and made sure of the size limit for the $100 fee and even went and bought a new bag to hold my boards specifically to fit. Also, had to go to a separate counter and wait in a separate line to pay the fee, which took quite a while and seemed VERY unnecessary."
Pros: "Good on board entertainment. Helpful service. Easy flying experience."
Pros: "staff was friendly. Planes very comfortable. Wine the whole way home. Movie selection great. I had a whole row of 3 seats together to myself for a 12 hour flight #winning"
Cons: "I didn't like the layover but that had nothing to do with Eva air. Eva air was great and I would def recommend to others"
Pros: "Very comfortable flight"
Cons: "The food was awful."
Cons: "Movie selection was lacking\ Bathroom floor was wet; I needed to wipe ti up myself"
Cons: "There was an hour delay before takeoff due to some maintenance issue. Otherwise, the overall experience was good."
Pros: "the crew was very helpful and pleasant. I liked the compass feature where you could see the plane's progress. It would be nice if there was also a way there could be a camera with a live stream of what was below us for those of us who never seem to get a window seat."
Cons: "The food on this flight was inedible. Luckily I wasn't particularly hungry."
Pros: "Good Customerservic."
Cons: "It's possible to told all the costumes that if they r sick or fought please wearing the mark . Thx you"
Pros: "Flight was not booked out so I had even more room to lay out."
Cons: "Nothing i didnt like"
Pros: "Smooth flight :)"
Cons: "Eva Air is excellent, its just the 8 hour layover in Taipei was not.."
Pros: "Comfort was good as was the entertainment."
Cons: "We noticed prior to boarding that our seat assignments were NOT what we booked! Our flight was on April 1st and the airline claims WE or the "travel agent" changed our seats on Dec 21st! The seats were changed from adjacent seats to all aisle seats (NONE adjacent)! These seats include our 8 year old twins, the airline claims WE made the change, WHY would we have our 8 year olds sit by themselves for a 12hour flight from Asia??!! This is ridiculous! I do NOT believe the crew did their job to correct this situation and were quite accusatory about US being responsible for this obvious screw up! I am still not sure who changed our seats but it really makes me think twice about booking again through KAYAK or with EVA Airlines!"
Pros: "Staff is friendly and patient, knowledgeable and efficient. Professionalism is top notch. Excellent experience."
Cons: "Not a thing. Smiled my entire 10 hour flight."
Pros: "price was very good I like the times of the flight easy quick transfer to my next flight service is excellent I would say any time possible I will fly EVA"
Pros: "Excellent staff, excellent food, good entertainment options, and I particularly like that the hand soaps in the bathroom are bergamot-scented :)"
Pros: "The flight was good"
Cons: "Airline did not let me choose seat. I'd like to be able to select seats next time"

The vegetable stir fry needed some soy sauce or something! The staff was lovely, everything was great!

Pros: "very comfortable reclining seats for sleeping. It was a lot of work for the attendants setting up each bed and then taking it apart. But for me, it was much more comfortable than the flight from SFO to ACK."
Cons: "Movies did not change from November to December. I watched 3 on the way to NZ in Nov and they were still the only 3 to interest me on the return flight. Disappointed."
Pros: "Food is always the best. I had the butter chicken for dinner. It was very delicious."
Cons: "I think this was just a personal issue for me only, but I would say the atmosphere. I felt the plane was humid and often at times, I found it hard to breathe. On one occasion, a flight attendant attempted to take my food away without asking if I was finished or not. I was annoyed by their lack of manners. I also didn't like having two blankets. There was no room under the seat in front of me, to put it anywhere. It significantly reduced my comfort. The passengers sitting next to me also had no respect when they asked me to step aside and was rude in general. It made my mood worse throughout the flight but I hanged in there. It was okay."
Cons: "Asked for an isle seat; was stuck in the middle. Way to long of a flight for that"
Cons: "Food in business class and more choice of movies"
Cons: "Great flight. Would have been nice to have on board wifi."
Pros: "Great and attentive crew. Solid in-flight entertainment. Pilots got us to destination 20 mins early!"
Cons: "1) It's pretty standard to offer a small toiletries pack (eg. Eyecover, toothbrush/paste, etc) on long-haul flights for other airlines. 2) Felt ripped off paying $50 for "preferred economy" seats that looked/felt identical to standard economy seats. Should be marketed as just priority boarding."
Pros: "Crew good, seat pretty comfortable"
Cons: "Seating choice was unavailable and we were stuck with two middle seats in a row of 4 across. Air NZ tried to bribe us into staying overnight and taking a one stop itinerary the next day."
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "Foot rest and seat recline was broken. Food was also just okay."
Pros: "Great food and crew"
Cons: "Seat comfort , WiFi"
Pros: "I had to us the wheel chair And they were all GREAT I was by my self"
Cons: "Right now I can't think of any thing"
Pros: "food and crew service"
Cons: "Business class Seats are uncomfortable, cushion is not that soft, sides are narrow and too tall, hard square arm rest on the right, drink tray is behind your shoulder, hard to fasten seat belt. Ride was very rough in both directions. Not worth the price paid."
Pros: "Nice seats in Business"
Cons: "2 hour delay"
Pros: "The seat next to me was empty so it was much more comfortable than the flight out. Movies were great"
Cons: "The food, economy has no room."
Pros: "Movie selection is good and food is pretty good."
Cons: "Very tight in economy. I’m 5’ & normal weight and felt cramped so if you’re any taller...you’ll hate it."
Cons: "Boarding and take off was delayed by about one hour, with no proactive communication from crew about the delay. Passengers waiting to board individually questioned why we had not started boarding yet when information screens in the airport displayed otherwise. We did not start boarding for a 12 hour international flight until ten minutes to scheduled take off. The first time we were informed about the delay as a group was after we had entered the aircraft."
Pros: "Have flown most carriers to Australia and NZ. Air NZ by far the best. I mean, I am flying cattle class, so its never going to be great. However, compared to the other carriers available, the seats are the most comfortable and have more legroom. If you can afford their sky couch, do so. Food is edible (and, to me, most airlines are not) and was nice to get WiFI all the way across for just a few air points."
Cons: "Would be nice if the seats had a foot rest, but this particular 777 did not. I have short legs."
Pros: "Free drinks and snacks"
Cons: "The meal choices were chicken curry or beef on this flight. They ran out of beef quickly. Why would you serve something like curry on an airplane that’s not at all agreeable to at least half the people on the plane and then force the rest of us to eat it when you run out of the other option? My seat recliner was broken so I got to sit straight up for 12 hours."
Pros: "The flight was pretty much a plain regional hopper. I got upgraded to first but honestly it didn't feel like a significantly different experience besides legroom"
Cons: "Flights was 2.5 hours late due to weather which was the biggest downer."
Cons: "Movies"
Cons: "If the customer is given the option of special meal - 1. the special meal should be what one selects. I selected Hindu meal as per option and was being served Veg Jain Meal. 2. Should be made available. Though I booked the flight for both me and my wife and the special meal request was for both, the wrong Veg meal was made available only to my wife. Something is not right with their system. One you serve what you make us select and then the system is recording only for one passenger."
Pros: "staff was lovely"
Cons: "didn't have a second pillow in business class bed was too flat for me. no other extras given. disappointing"
Pros: "Skycouch a MUST for long haul flights."
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful flight attendants"
Pros: "Blankets, entertainment"
Cons: "Preferred seating was a joke !"
Pros: "The boarding process was efficient and the seat was comfortable enough for coach class across the Pacific. It was a definite bonus not having someone in the middle seat. The food was quite good, and I appreciated the ability to get snacks throughout the flight. The crew was efficient, the IFE is very good, and the entire experience was very positive. I will continue to fly ANZ internationally as often as I can."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "- Not a full flight, so empty seat next to me - Great in-flight entertainment - Great staff service"
Pros: "Entertainment was good, crew was nice, flight was very smooth"
Cons: "Took forever to take off, but not company fault"
Pros: "Great food, wine, service Seats"
Cons: "no wifi"
Pros: "Great airline. Like all of them these days more room would be nice as would better vegetarian options. Friendly staff, they seem to care about the passenger rather than just being bossy about usually silly rules."
Pros: "The fly was on time"
Cons: "The service very poor"
Pros: "We made our connection, just barely."
Cons: "Faulty equipment presented as weather problems caused almost hour delay."
Pros: "Crew and plane are awesome"
Cons: "The flight itinerary as delayed"
Pros: "Was the same, everything allright"
Pros: "Personal seat entertainment system, good choice movies& tv . My seat was comfy for coach, free wine was nice."
Cons: "I booked this in October and chose 2 seats with one being an aisle seat. I was moved with my wife to the two middle seats in a row of four, like a second class citizen. There was no meatless options for food. Cabin temperature varied wildly requiring several clothing changes in a cramped seat I didn't select."
Pros: "Friendly staff Smooth boarding process Great entertainment system"
Cons: "temperature regulation on the plane was quite poor. Parts of the cabin were very warm and others were very cold and flight attendants had difficulty regulating the temperature. food was also quite bland."
Pros: "Low initial ticket price"
Cons: "Extra charge to get to sit next to my wife, which I was subsequently told I didn't have to pay because if my frequent flyer status (star alliance gold), but no, so sorry, no refund of that extra fee possible. Cheap!"
Pros: "already commented above, everthing about the same...staff was very nice"
Cons: "Very tight small space, food not great quality. Also a lot of plastic used, hope there is a recycling program in place or strives to reduce the waste for the food."
Pros: "Excellent overall service as usual from start to finish"
Pros: "United Code share. Very poor boarding. Service is poor, food is poor. But compared to some US Airlines they are probably good."
Cons: "Well for every US airline. Improve everything."
Pros: "Fairly comfortable flight, good onboard entertainment. I liked the selection of movies and NZ tv programs. The food was delicious and I love that complimentary wine is served."
Cons: "My only complaint was in regard to the children's meals. We ordered children's meals ahead of time for our 2 kids. On our flight from SFO to AKL, no problem but on the return flight they only brought us one child's breakfast. I asked a crew member for the other one. She told us it would be brought over but never was. So my son had to wait until the regular meals were brought and have one of those. Not a big deal but it was a little annoying. Also, for the return trip dinner, they served delicious Kapiti ice cream with the adult meal but no ice cream with the kids' meals so my kids were super disappointed about that and my husband and I shared ours with them. Again, not a terrible offense, just a little annoying."
Pros: "Comfortable flight. Drinks were excellent including tea!"
Cons: "Breakfast could be better. My son didn't get his choice on one flight and there was not much he would eat in choices. Make it more general so even teenagers/kids can enjoy. Crew could be nicer, especially in Premier Economy when we pay so much money!"
Pros: "Loved the new planes"
Cons: "Too bright in the cabin, the pink lights were a little hard on the eyes"
Cons: "It is a toss up which airline has more uncomfortable seats, you or United. Leg room is not great and some padding would be nice."
Pros: "The cabin crew was friendly, helpful and good humored. The in-flight video and audio choices were outstanding. Meals were good but not outstanding."
Cons: "I suppose it is good marketing to make you walk past the amazing seats in business/premier class on your way past "Premium Economy" back to economy class on the Boeing 777 -- but it did make me wish I had a few thousand dollars to throw away on 13 hours of being pampered. Economy seats are pretty narrow. I am of average size and I was often bumping and being bumped by the passenger in the adjacent seat as well as by people walking up and down the aisle."
Pros: "Very attentive crew, layout, comfort"
Cons: "I enjoyed everything I wa"
Cons: "Would have been more exciting to land early if our gate was ready. Better to wait on the ground than their air I guess but after 11 hours on a plane the last thing you want to do is wait longer. Realize that's on the airport and not the airline, although there should be communication there."
Cons: "I was issued a ticket with a window seat as I had requested. However, when I boarded and sat in the seat I was assigned, I was moved because it turned out that the couple that was sitting next to me had purchased the seat so they could lay down. I was seated at another window seat, but it turned out the couple in that row had paid extra to have that seat empty as well. I was not only re-seated before the plane took off, but then I was re-seated THREE more times until finally being put in a middle seat after the flight was in flight. To top it all off, the plane was so delayed I missed my connecting flight to my final destination."
Pros: "Newer interior design, food was pretty good, entertainment system was touchscreen and had some nice new features, bathroom taps had a motion sensor (it's about time!), clean aircraft and modern led lighting."
Cons: "We had seats right next to bathroom doors. The design should make sure there are no seats in that location."

The seats were tight and uncomfortable. Food service was just ok. I don't see how they're rated #1. I preferred Qantas over Qatar.

Wonderful time. Everything we enjoy. No complaints. Thanks.

good

Please refer to comments on previous flight.

The boarding procedure was ABYSMAL. It is infuriating to be asked to "social distance" and wear masks when the airline is unable to conduct boarding in an organized and efficient way. The crew was totally incompetent in informing waiting passengers. No microphones. No digital display of boarding order. No staff assistance. Waiting for WAY too long with no explanation. It was perfectly awful. Food was eatable but completely tasteless. Not nearly enough liquid distribution.

Cons: "It would have been better if the wifi was included."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful"
Pros: "The crew is very friendly and helpfu; the space between seats is noticeably larger than usual"
Pros: "As always crew magnificent"
Cons: "More refreshments"
Pros: "The plane was new and spotless, the crew did everything possible to make the flight great. Food service, and Wine and Cocktails were always served with a smiling face and it made you think of flying many years ago. Service cleanliness of the restrooms and staff were top notch"
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "Great experience"
Pros: "The crew was amazing!"
Cons: "The internet service was not working!"
Pros: "Crew was really amazing."
Cons: "Wifi not working- huge disappointment. Seats a bit hard on A350. The overhead bins on the inside suitable only for tall people."
Pros: "Fabulous crew, good choice of food and drinks and served whenever you want it. Good array of entertainment on offer but our flight was a 'sleeper' so after a fumble with the controls and the limited new releases, I opted to read instead. Seats are comfy and spacious, much wider than Emirates in the same class (who offer only an extra 1/2 inch width over economy). Amenity kit a quality piece that is both practical and useful."
Cons: "Crew seemed to have stopped referring to the passengers by name and offer a less-personalised service in Business than we have become accustomed to. The food choices while good, have been paired back as have the selection of wines."
Pros: "Excellent entertainment very friendly crew"
Cons: "Food...again"
Pros: "Just that the food is quite small but the variety is OK."
Pros: "The crew were nice and cautious"
Pros: "Very affordable flights, good value for money. Most of the journey from Sydney to Oslo (via Doha) went qiluite smoothly)."
Cons: "The only thing I didn’t like about the experience was the fact that you can only check in one piece of luggage on economy class, and one very sour individual at the gate when boarding."
Pros: "Stellar crew -- super friendly, served water/juices constantly, polite, attentive. To be commended Great choice of movies and entertainment but no wifi???"
Cons: "This was an older 777 -- no wifi -- pretty surprising on such a key flight at DOH-JFK! This is not the airline's fault but I had a crazy lady next to me who was very disoriented, who could not speak English and needed assistance. No one would deal with her! She had a little pouch with her name on it -- like a UM -- so someone knew something was not right when they put her on the flight. I bought drinks inside the terminal for this 14 hour flight but they were all confiscated at the additional security at the gate!! WTF"
Pros: "B777 Dreamliner is dreamy. Lots of overhead luggage space. Decent leg room (could always be more). Great individual entertainment screen for long transcontinental flights. Flight staff was a mixed international crew, very friendly, unpretentious, polite and just nice compared to other airlines. The planes they use seem very new. Would definitely recommend Qatar Air over Aeroflot any day."
Cons: "Food was decent for airline food but nothing to rave about and as with most airlines uses too much plastic packaging. Although I was pleased that some of the flights used metal flatware, but still too much waste in the industry in my opinion. Also, the headphone jack was not compatible with my headphones. The type used on the 777 is the dual pronged one. I did not have an adapter so had to use the crappy headphones that are provided."
Pros: "Individual service, happy and natural looking crew, comfort and company aim."
Pros: "Films Service"
Cons: "Not enough films"
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to get off the plane and then put back on the plane. That was not noted when buying the ticket. That is important information."
Pros: "The flight attendants are always friendly and helpful"
Pros: "The entertainment console is dismal"
Cons: "Comfort of seat size has shrunk!!! Good grief."
Pros: "Excellent flight , seats, food"
Pros: "Excellent service from the crew. Flight on time."
Pros: "The Qatar Airways price."
Pros: "Qatar has one of the best service in the world"
Cons: "Nothing that I ca th think off"
Pros: "The friendliness of the staff from check in to arrival!"
Pros: "I would definitely travel again with quatar. Amazing trip long hours but they sure take care of the passenger. Love how they took care of my child"
Pros: "The aircraft from US to Qatar was upgraded and looked new. I love the new on demand video streaming, the touch controls are precise and better than previous version"
Cons: "I wish the airline was a bit more organized with boarding. I saw people with other zones boarding even when they were not called. The air hostess was friendly but I kinda got a feeling that she is doing me a huge favor when I asked for something more."
Pros: "Crew helped with my bags."
Cons: "Lack of film choice"
Pros: "Seats in Business Class are heaven. You get quality rest. Very spacious. Food is good but should have option of healthy sides (steam or sauteed vegetables dor example). On board crew very helpful and polite with a minor exception"
Cons: "Food is good but should have option of healthy sides (steam or sauteed vegetables dor example). Too much potato. One flight attendant with an attitude can affect overall experience. Not sure if because of inexperience or just the wrong way to approach customers. I could tell this person was struggling trying to be genuinely nice. Complicated process to upgrade from economy to business"
Pros: "same"
Cons: "same"
Pros: "Crew was great. Very helpful and caring"
Cons: "Flying in and out of Doha and being marked for yet another deep search was so frustrating"
Pros: "Excellent service. Good seats. I like the 3x3x3 configuration which make the middle seat bearable."
Pros: "Same"
Cons: "I understand it's the industry standard, but seats are too narrow with shared armrests."
Pros: "Attention to detail and attentiveness of the staff was par excellence in the business class"
Pros: "food was good"
Cons: "all my flights were delayed"
Pros: "The courtesy and efficiency of the crd, an acceptable level of comfort inf the economy class."
Cons: "Food below average, command of the entertainment screen not convenient."
Pros: "Generally ok but not as good as other Middle East carriers"
Cons: "The leg room on this flight felt less generous than other carrier and the food was poor almost inedible. The aircraft (777) seemed much noiser than other aircraft I have flown on and the noise from the toilet flush could be heard 10 rows away"
Pros: "Overall, an excellent short flight. I was flying with oversize luggage (bicycle), which is offer a hassle. The ticket agent took care of it without issue, and it arrived safely. Food was OK. I would try Qatar for a long flight if the opportunity arises."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic. Everyone just queued up instead of using zones, etc."
Pros: "It was a short flight, so no problems"
Pros: "The best service"
Cons: "Nothing bad to say"
Cons: "Food was below average Could have been better for elderly people.. Boarding: No wheel chair assist. asked for 2 wheel chair assist - for myself and my spouse..but got for only one.had to wait till last min at boarding where tickets where issued as no one was available..hurried in last min to security gate."
Pros: "Vegetarian food options"
Pros: "I flew from LAX to Dhaka Dec 18th and had a great experience. Staff was very helpful -- I was given the opportunity to re-arrange my bags, to avoid a baggage fee. Excellent entertainment options. New and comfortable planes."
Cons: "Had a bit of a delay getting checked in at LAX, as they only have one counter, and weren't open when I first arrived."
Pros: "On Time good service"
Cons: "Serving alcohol on board"
Pros: "crew was nice, but did not come around enough to pick up trash."
Cons: "entertainment system didn't work, food was mediocre"
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "Customer Affairs Office needs to understand their role or they should eliminate it as it reflects poorly on the company. In short, they suck."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for almost an hour after arriving and the pilot totally lied about the expected wait, “About 10 minutes” when we first arrived and then no update for 45 minutes."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful , food was good"
Cons: "started the flight w a giant roach crawling out from my tray table. We were not able to kill it and it crawled away. Needless to say I spent the entire flight a bit grossed out and antsy thinking the bug would be back. TVs were broken majority of the flight. Had to be reset multiple times throughout"
Cons: "New app for entertainment"
Cons: "Delayed flight, terrible ride"
Pros: "Hawaiian Air is great"
Cons: "TSA"
Pros: "Hawaiian music."
Cons: "Incredibly slow baggage handling. Extremely tight seating"
Pros: "Friendly service... we even got a meal during the flight."
Cons: "No free movies or programs... no Wifi service"
Pros: "Hawaiian always has smooth flights, good entertainment, a MEAL and free rum punch - what's not to like!!"
Cons: "boarding process was a bit slow in Maui, but not a deal killer."
Pros: "The crew was friendly, the airline is very accommodating and it was clean. Will fly with Hawaiian airline again for sure."
Pros: "The crew of Hawaiian Airlines was outstanding. The boarding process was smooth and efficient. There was adequate space to store baggage, seating was comfortable, entertainment was outstanding, food and refreshments were fantastic."
Pros: "The crew was nice and helpful. On my flight home from Lihue one of the young men (crew member ) was extremely helpful to a young mother with a baby who was having problems with her son , I know she appreciated his kind jester in trying to take the time to talk to the little boy and assured him everything was going to be ok if he would help his mom by behaving."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed, the last two trips I have made, I had a delay , I'm glad I didn't have to catch a connecting flight."
Pros: "Hawaiian Air crews deliver better service in a more professional manner than most others. We had a difficult group of passengers causing a delay upon boarding. The crew took care that well."
Cons: "Domestic air travel in the USA has generally lost it's way. The costomer experience can be negatively influenced at so many points during the average trip. On this flight, other passengers (one family) with disgusting manners, smelly carry on food and generally poor attitudes, made it a captive experience. The crew were the bright spot. An airline can't help that much but, can mitigate the damage and the employees did that. You have very good people."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and did great dealing with some difficult passengers. They also kept us going with snacks and drinks."
Cons: "It seemed really hot on the plane for the whole flight...I feel like it could have been 10 degrees cooler and no one would be uncomfortable."
Cons: "The women at the gate were total bitches. Rude. Poor costumer service. And not very helpful. The main woman ( Hawaiian mix looking ) was very rude and stuck up. You need to retrain her!!! I will never book that flight ever again !!! Very disappointed. Rather go with Delta!!!"
Cons: "I didn't eat or feel drawn to any of the movies or entertainment offerings."
Pros: "Very good service."
Cons: "No food on the return flight."
Pros: "free food"
Cons: "have to purchase ear phone and entertainment"
Pros: "The free meals were lovely"
Cons: "The complementary wine offered tasting awful. This does not reflect badly on the company I just know there is cheap wine available in bulk that is much better than what was served."
Pros: "Smooth Flight, decent food."
Cons: "Takes a long time to get off the plane once it's landed. Maybe they need more than one exit - that's probably not realistic but you asked."
Pros: "love the fact that they offer meal service!"
Cons: "you have to pay for movies"
Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "There were no outlets to charge laptops"
Pros: "They serve meals which apparently doesn't happen on the other airlines. They offer free wine with the meals which was a nice touch but we didn't have any - just water was fine. In the Airbus 330 there was plenty of room to store carry on luggage"
Cons: "We don't look to be treated like we are royalty. But it would be nice if the flight crew took more time to be friendly - smile a little maybe and make it look like you are happy to be there. I had brought gift cards along to tip the flight attendants but it just didn't happen."
Pros: "Great staff, comfy seats. Took red eye and was given blanket and pillow complimentary! So nice!"
Cons: "Didn't get breakfast :/"
Pros: "direct flight to Hawaii. Left and arrived on time"
Cons: "No space in seating, every thing costs on this trip, to include $10 to use a blanket, $4 to use ear buds. Any movie even old like Beatle juice for example was 7.99 per movie, tv shows were also 7.99. I have fly about every couple months both in USA and internationally, and all US carriers are by far the worse service."
Pros: "The crew was amazing, very warm and welcoming. Best flight I've had in a long time. I'm definitely going to only fly Hawaiian air to Hawaii from now on."
Pros: "I enjoyed the food service."
Cons: "The plane landed late and then we drove around the tarmac for an hour! This was frustrating"
Cons: "The crew. Not very friendly. Rarely smiles. Snacks was very limited. The entertainment center does not work very well. Touch screen buttons worn out. Have to press hard for it to respond."
Pros: "Crew was attentitive"
Cons: "Issues with seat selection on the app Bathrooms weren't clean on flight Had to taxi for 1 hour after landing"
Pros: "The entire trip was smooth and easy, from check in at Honolulu airport to baggage claim at LAX, we had zero issues! That's a rarer and rarer thing these days. The flight crew were friendly and polite, the complimentary meal in coach was a pleasant surprise, and the A330-2 was smartly designed for relative comfort and accessibility."
Cons: "Would be great if there were SOME free television offerings, like Southwest Airlines does. I understand paying for the movies (although if you really wanted to stand out above the competition you could offer a select movie for free like in the old days), however the option to watch some satellite tv channels at no cost would be great. Also the nearest bathroom was out of order and that was a bit disappointing."
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: "All entertainment except Hawaiian music was costly. Only drinks and snacks were offered for free"
Pros: "Boarding was a breeze."
Cons: "The overhead light was left on way to long, which made it hard to go to sleep. I had also hoped for a snack of some kind before landing."
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "Upgraded $80 for leg room, was jammed into a regular seat. I am 6'6" 220lbs. I do not fit in regular seats. Torture. Got a refund later, but only after being initially denied and being told it was my fault. Huh??"
Pros: "The seats were amazing... very comfortable."
Cons: "The flight attendants were unfriendly, cold, and seemed very annoyed. The entertainment was VERY pricey - that was an unwelcome surprise for such a long flight. I would rather bring my own food and be able to distract myself with a series of complimentary movies."
Pros: "Relaxing music on the plane, extremely friendly staff, efficient, and comfortable. The comfort level was basic - not a super updated aircraft - but overall a great flight experience."
Cons: "Everything was great. Aircraft wasn't super updated but no problem!"
Pros: "Great crew. During meal time they did a great job of having passengers adjust their seats so people could eat their meals in economy. If they didn't do this, it would be left to the passengers to ask the person in front of them to raise the seat or have to struggle to eat with that person's seat close to your face. Having the crew do that was great. That is another thing nice with this Hawaiiian aircraft. The seats actually have leg room in econonmy and they recline enough to rest. Don't change that! Also very nice is that you get a complementary wine or beer with your meal :-)"
Cons: "Entertainment options felt like 'nickel and diming'. It is a 5+ hour flight and all the seats have personal entertainment consoles. The only thing is you have to pay ~$7 to watch any of the movies. Be sure to have your book or device loaded up before flight. Each seat has a USB charging port :-), however it only has low amps - this means you can't charge things like a tablet :-(."
Pros: "crew was friendly and helpful and the seats in economy plus were more than adequate."
Cons: "nothing"
Cons: "Disappointed that there was no meal on the late evening flight. Only a bag of snacks. Since we got a hot sandwich on the outbound flight from LAX to HNL, we expected something on the return flight!"
Cons: "I was unable to select a seat within the 24 hour window prior to departure, other than paying an $80 upcharge for an aisle seat. On the phone the day prior to departure, I was told by the HA agent that "the airport controilled seat assignments" at that timne so she could not help me get a seat, and that the extra charge option on the website was the only choice I had. This process struck me as bizarre/dishonest. I will not be back unless I can select a seat prior to booking."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Pros: "Pretty quick...pilot was doing 599mph for most of the way!"
Pros: "Crew polite and professional. Nice atmospheric pre-flight videos. The offer of a free rum-spiked drink was nice, though I couldn't take advantage because I had to drive home."
Cons: "Plane was WAY too cold for a flight from Hawaii to LA! Also, very limited free entertainment choices. Wasn't about to pay $8 to watch a movie."
Pros: "Really appreciated the 'laid-back' feel upon boarding and throughout, supported by the ambient slack-key guitar and native Hawaiian music. Also appreciated the engaging video presentation of basic safety and security information. "Free" Premium Entertainment was welcome, although I remained aware that this perk had been covered in my ticket price."
Cons: "Considering that you're attempting to please a wide array of tastes, the mass-produced ready-made meals were pretty good, just not necessarily five-star restaurant made-to-order preferences. Some of us are pretty picky about our organic, fresh, gluten-free, sugar-free, vegetarian, and vegan options. In that Hawaiian Airlines seems to market itself as a very conscientious and customer-friendly airlines, any evolution in this direction would be welcome."
Pros: "On time. We got food!"
Cons: "The seat space. I was in the middle and it was very difficult to get out use the restroom. Claimed over people and held on to the seat of people in front."
Pros: "Staff were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "There was a long line to TSI check in. We almost miss our flight."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "It was freezing on the plane and seats were changed."
Pros: "More seat room, attentive flight attendants, meals were ok."
