Cons: "I was travelling with a toddler and they did not have a toy or activity to give her on a 15 hour flight.

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

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.

Pros: "Singapore Airlines is my new airline, forget about any other airlines. They have very beautiful service and entertainment. Their staff and one of the best crews ever. I really love it."

Pros: "Courteous, Professional Crew. Amazing Service."
Cons: "old plane, boarding ramp smelled musty, food not nice, entertainment system was old not touch screen, male crew not patient with passengers, drinks stingy(split a can of soda with other passengers, and gave you a 1/4 cup).

Pros: "Seating space was very good. Meals terrific"
Pros: "Exceptional service!"
Cons: "There should always be a vegetarian option on the set menu. I didn't realise I would need to pre order my meal for this."

Pros: "I liked how often the staff walked down the ailes to help. They are very attentive. The entertainment is endless. Seats were standard in economy class, I recommended upgrading for that long of a flight."
Cons: "To my flight specifically, it got adjusted without telling me so I ended up missing my final transfer. I was not given a notification for a flight change. Someone met me at the end of my second flight to tell me I missed my connecting flight. With the adjusted flight Singapore gave me, there was no chance I would have made it. They did purchase a ticket for me on another airline to get to San Francisco in the end."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, but other than that, flight was great."
Pros: "The service was amazing. The flight attendants were all so friendly and eager to assist. The meals were very tasty and complimentary wine was such a treat. Blankets were nice and thick, pillows were comfy, and you even received a little bag with socks and toothbrush."

Pros: "Crew was not this great on my Flight from Doha to IAD. My pre ordered food was not given on time and they missed it. I was given cold food. The flight attendant ignored to offer Drinks and they didn't give the Custom Forms too. I have to ask everything and THE overall service was awful"
Cons: "Flight attendants should care the passengers and provide the best service. Otherwise there is no use paying expensive flight tickets and travelling on Qatar"
Pros: "The Crew were professional, friendly and comforting. The A380 Business Class is the best way to fly. Smooth journey, very comfortable reclining beds with enough room to within the bed area to move around with adequate space. The Wine list was excellent with a great choice and variety."
Cons: "Nothing to do with the flight...but Qatar could have offered an airport hotel room to their Bus. Class passengers for the 9 hour delay....we did have the Lounge, but a shower, rest and comfort after another previous 5 hour 30 minutes flight from Athens 11.30am Start to 2.00am start from Doa."
Pros: "Everything was good"

Pros: "Stuff is Fantastic, food is delicious, a lot of leg room, got to love Qatar Airways. No wonder they’re number one."
Pros: "Service was fantastic as usual for me however it seems women are not treated equally service wise as wife on all 4 legs did not get all the things i was afforded. Lighting, pajamas, bed mattress, meal choice queries etc"
Cons: "The need to pull out boarding passes multiple times-like 6 times- and having to be screened Twice. To even buy some mouthwash i had to show boarding passes. Ridiculous"

Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Pros: "The flight attendants were professional and polite, I requested low-fat meals and they were good, the entertainment was very good, the air temperature was comfortable, most flights I had were on time."
Cons: "The legroom was a problem. Seats are kind of narrow, and then, with the lack of legroom it’s somewhat challenging to shift your legs, especially when the seat in front of you goes back! I felt like the person was almost in my lap. My cup even got crunched. I think my biggest issue, though, lay in how I was treated after paying $127.00 to obtain a day pass for the lounge each way. For my inbound flight my purse was branded with an “economy” class luggage type tag, and I was made to feel as though I was trying to sneak in. I had to show my boarding pass a number of times to employees after asking for the location of the lounge in order to be directed there, and then my credentials were examined as though I was trying to get into Fort Knox. Upon arrival at the desk, I was somewhat tersely informed that I had 6 hours. I went out of my way a bit in order to fly Qatar, which is supposed to be so wonderful, and I was underwhelmed. I’ve had better experiences on Lufthansa and Turkish Airlines."
Pros: "Flight attendants are ok"
Cons: "They did not honor my seat reservation they moved me from row 21 to the last row without any good explanation what is the freaking use of buying a tickiet early and reserving ur seat early when they move u anyway"

Cons: "A chorus of crying infants..."
Pros: "inflight and qatar airport crews were accomodating eventhough there were backlogs due to delays caused by snow storm."
Cons: "The Ground crews in boston airport were not accomodating."
Pros: "Flight Attendants were really helpful especially when one of my child had a nose bleed, we had at least 3 attendants, tending to our needs when that happened and they did not leave until the situation was resolved."
Pros: "Boarding from Doha and service in doha."
Cons: "ASSISTANCE IN DELHI..my parents did not even get wheel chair after long tiring journey..they were keep trying for help and did not get any help..I am asking is this the airline duty or not to give assistance who is in need.even did not get the porter to carry the heavy luggage.is anyone responsible for that? what is the use of this nonsense servey?"
Pros: "The lack of passengers on this flight gave me an amazing amount of room. Really makes the flights enjoyable when I can spread out."

Pros: "i liked that the entertainment system had a lot to offer, lots of movies and options. I liked the staff, they were very cooperative and friendly."

The airplane chairs were small and no leg room, on a 7 hour flight to Barcelona that was exhausting! Couldn't manage to get some sleep at all. Overall, at least I arrived to my destination safe and sound. Thank you!"

Pros: "About the same vegetarian food was served at almost every meal of the 13 hour flight."
Cons: "Need to provide more variety in food for long-haul flights. The food was not at all appetizing. ---- Entertainment should have more choices."
Pros: "The crew, Sami and Juliana in particular, were absolutely amazing!"
Cons: "Qatar Airways needs to abandon its draconian policies and disconnected, overy segregated procedures. Also, an allegedly five-star airline needs to upgrade aircraft which would make FlyDubai blush."
Pros: "Great service by the flight crew! Friendly and competent. Food is decent but not quite up to Emirates. Kudos to QA for investing in the A-350. Quiet and comfortable."
Cons: "The headphone jack on my entertainment system was defective."
Pros: "Journey was ok."

Pros: "Aircraft was new and good."
Cons: "Non Vegetarian meal was over by the time the service reached me."
Pros: "I have been in qatar airways many a times and they have done an excellent job connecting Kathmandu to outside world. The experience is usually very nice-the plane is in good condition, the fly crew are always smiling and helping, the food and entertainment are great."
Cons: "May be this is one time thing, but the ground crew were terrible, particularly the man who was on the check-in counter. Spoke with a robotic tone and was very rude. Spoke as if he owned the plane and we were asking for a free ride. Very disappointing start to a long journey."
Cons: "They didnt let me sit with my family and my seats were changed twice after i was checked in without notifying me. I have anxiety issues and it was really hard"
Pros: "Excellent on time flights"
Cons: "Food quality was bad. We had pre-ordered Hindu Indian meals and the food was anything but Indian."
Pros: "The crew was super helpful and amazing! Comfortable seats and plenty of space for someone my size to sit (5’4”)."
Cons: "The only thing that I think could be better is the entertainment. I had a hard time figuring out how to use the screen on the aircraft but the selection of shows was good."

Cons: "The flight was always delay."
Pros: "Poor fight (delay)"
Cons: "Need better movie options"
Pros: "Seat was super comfortable and crew is great"
Cons: "Food is poor"

Cons: "There was delay for my flight by 2 - 3 hours that really messed up my travel plans"
Pros: "I did like the modern touch of the aircraft and it made me feel cozier."
Cons: "The food options are not that great, and it is almost the same meal given over and over, which does not taste that great."
Cons: "Departure always not in time"
Cons: "We only had one hour to catch our connecting flight, which was canceled and rescheduled by air China not by customer. Rude!"
Cons: "The same thing as above"
Cons: "For some reason they had a hard time printing off our infant boarding pass and couldn’t print out our connecting flights so we had to go to a ticket counter during a very short transfer. We came within minutes of not making it."

Cons: "Late No wifi internet said there was Late Had to run through airport to catch connection Bags didnt arrive Now have to wear sweaty clothes (after running for a day or two) Food sucked"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "They didn't let me on the flight because they said I didn't check in on the flight to LA. And on the flight to LA I was there but they wouldn't let me on the plane. I wasn't being rude I was cooperating with them."
Pros: "Air China is a good solid performer...with modern planes and decent staff. Clean, On-time, safe. Our 748-8 had a modern entertainments system. Seats a bit tight for a 5'10 guy...but fine for my 5'1" wife."
Cons: "PEK boarding ramps really rundown at PEK. Signage for Immigration misleading. Range of local overnight hotels is more aimed at smoking business travelers from China....not some must Americans and Europeans. Transfers to and from airport can be unreliable...especially for very early or late flights. Coris hotel is a safe but expensive choice...with excellent staff and transit vans."
Cons: "I had to stay at Beijing for overnight and took a flight the next day."
Pros: "overall it was good; crew was excellent, kept the plane, specially toilet clean throughout."
Cons: "food selection for vegetarians better movie selection; english in TV documentaries."
Pros: "But very very far experience from Emirates or Qatar air to this part of the world."
Cons: "The veggie/vegan options were inedible overcooked plain veggies and an unflavored carbohydrate - thank god we brought some food. No entertainment system and the plane was definitely a decommissioned 757 from a 1990s 757."
Pros: "generally good"
Cons: "failure to comply with special food needs after many calls and e-mails stating organised so a 10 year old boy had to do without food on board due to allergy to NUT &Fish and being a 18 hour journey not appreciated"
Cons: "Bad audio quality on entertainment system. Poor communication and food service. No way to call airlines beforehand for arranging special meal."
Pros: "The crew from Tokyo to Beijing was the Airlines saving grace; they’re the only reason not getting lowest possible scores across the board."
Cons: "Flight from LA to Beijing was horrible, the entire experience starting with check in."
Pros: "Doesn't matter if your economy or first class. First one to the gate gets in. Good for me because I always fly economy."
Cons: "Typical Chinese service, poor. Will never fly Air China ever again. Only reason why I book the ticket because it was cheap, now I know why."
Pros: "Absolutely no customer service whatsoever, not even a smile. Best thing about this flight was the food and trust me that’s not saying much."
Pros: "Crew efficient"
Cons: "No entertainment, console broken. Ran out of menu item of choice, but alternative was easily digestible."
Cons: "My baby (not yet 1-year) was uncomfortable on the flight and through out. When I asked one crew for help to clean up the floor she just gave me a disgust face and told me I should make the baby throw in the trash bag... I was super shocked and disappointed. I think air china really need to improve their employee training."
Cons: "Not enough meals or snacks were offered. food and beverages below other airlines"
Pros: "Crew, hostesses, attitude, arriving earlier"
Pros: "Clean safe and on time. Competent cabin crew. The great fares made this trip possible....so we have no complaints about Air China."
Cons: "Wasted more than an hour in the wrong immigration line because we got no guidance from Air China that long layover passengers need to sign up at a special...and poorly market special pre-immigration desk before proceeded to regular immigration line. As for the flight itself.....the seats are just not made for people over 5' 7"."
Pros: "crew were nice and attentive"
Cons: "Food was pretty bland Not very many films in english"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Food, cleanliness of airplane"
Cons: "Food was bland. Very limited flight entertainment selection."
Pros: "I didn't like it , nothing to tell"
Cons: "12 hours delay at departure, service very bad, overall very shity plane, thats,why ticket so cheap"
Pros: "Can't think of much. The plane was in good shape and it got us to Beijing, albeit very late."
Cons: "Currently stuck in Beijing and it is 100 percent the most intensely awful situation I've had while flying. Do not fly air china and certainly avoid Beijing airport if possible. I say this calmly, even if it doesn't read that way."
Cons: "The flight delayed almost five hours.during the time, no broadcast no food no drink. Air china is so bad."
Pros: "Flight crew were helpful and efficient. Food was fine."
Pros: "Clean plane delay"
Pros: "I hate that u connect me with poi t to point airline that i ly allows for a one check in bag"
Cons: "I ended removing ine of my two check in bag as Myabmar Bational Airline from Yangon to Bangkok only allow one check in bag. Poor connection on your end"
Pros: "Look forward to my return trip"
Cons: "I had a coonecting flight to Panama City -- the flight was delayed 1 hour and 30 minutes out of Beijing. I missed the connection flight. It was my son's graduation and no one did anything to help until AFTER I missed the flight."
Pros: "The food was better than other airline. The flight was half full, I can sleep the whole roll seat. The flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "The movie was the same going and coming back. The touch screen was not quite working."
Pros: "Boarding in PEK airport was so fast!"
Cons: "1. Not allowed to use phones during the flight... at all. 100% ban. This means no music on headphones or any usage at all, even in flight-safe mode. Ridiculous. 2. Forced to shut laptops down a full 30min before landing. So unnecessary. 3. My luggage was soaking wet when I unpacked... a bottle of alcohol from another bag must've smashed and spilt all through my bag. Everything was ruined and wet. 4. No entertainment on the PEK-ICN flight. 5. Crew is just generally aggressive and rude."
Pros: "Seats were large and crew was nice"
Cons: "Couldn't touch your phone."
Cons: "Our 2am flight from Phuket was delayed 2 hours so we missed our connecting 14 hour flight from Beijing to NYC. Once our plane in Phuket was ready we were then shuttled group by group from the terminal to the plane on a bus which took about another hour, at 3 in the morning. There is zero concern for people missing their connecting flights or any mention of what to do if you do have a connection. The airline does not coordinate with its own connecting flight - how hard can this really be - which we missed by about 5 minutes. We could see the plane sitting on the tarmac still connected to the gate but yet we had to go through security and immigration multiple more times and pass through the funnels of the airport like cattle. We were then stuck in Beijing for another 5 hours before our 14 hour flight after already traveling for about 10 hours thanks to the Phuket ---> Beijing fiasco. Additionally, whatever they serve as meals on these flights should not be confused with actual food. Do better, people. Flying across the world is tough enough without your total lack of consideration for your passengers on these epically long flights."
Cons: "Delayed for a long time."
Pros: "Lost my bag took 3 days to find. No updates incompetent baggage personnel food inedible. Fight attendants discriminate. Chinese man beside me got numerous drinks/snack I got one glass of orange juice ife at my seat broken and garbled. My electrical outlet did not work no compensation for lost bag"
Pros: "This has got be the worst airline for customer service. I was on hold for over 2 hours on multiple occasions just to make a simple change to my ticket, which for some reason can't be done online. After realizing their customer service number is a complete hoax, I had to take an hour long train ride to the airport to make the change. Once there, I was told they couldn't make any changes and I would need to call customer service. I insisted calling was pointless at which time the aiine staff shruggered her shoulders and walked away. I made another attempt to call the customer service number, which I still believe no one at all works at. Needless to say, I ended up eating a $1000 plane ticket because of their refusal to help. DO GIVE THESE PEOOLE YOUR MONEY. THEY TOOM PLENTY OF MINE."
