Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Pros: "I didn't like the trip much. After the trip we found out that our body was bitten by fleas. Our body is now full of rashes, every part of my body is so itchy. We was seated in 61A and 61C, seems like in the previous flight a dog was sitting there or some kind of animal that left fleas in the sit."

Pros: "Singapore Airlines delivers as always. Friendly crew and clean and well maintained aircraft."

Cons: "There was a smell in the plane when I first arrived like vomit. It may have been the cleaning supplies."

Cons: "Some staff not courteous which surprised me"
Pros: "The serivce was amazing. Also it was clean and the food was great."
Pros: "The cabin crew was great."
Cons: "1. Flight seats are too congested on flight.. 2. Not too many indian movie choices 3. Some reason, while booking the flight, the KAYAK site had not asked for food choice. And the airline does not carry any extra vegetarian food. This had caused some inconvenience."
Pros: "Crew members were very friendly n helpful."
Pros: "This time I made the mistake of flying with my kids (4 and 6). The flight or them was last minute (booked less than 8 hours before take off) so there were no pre-planned kids meals etc. The in cabin team were awesome! They made sure they go a choice of meals, that they had things to do, that they were enjoying the flights. This on top of the usual awesome that they have."
Cons: "It's still in Huston. Flying economy isn't the same as flying business but my bank account says I need the cheaper option. Can we please move this flight to DFW instead? :-)"
Cons: "The cabin was quite warm"
Pros: "Food was delicious!"
Pros: "Liked almost everything: newspapers, menu card, mini-toiletries bag, hot towel, food choice, ice cream, entertainment options, head sets provided (better quality than US airlines), lavatories kept clean and with less waiting time, number and friendliness of flight staff."

Pros: "The service, seats, food, drinks and bed!"
Pros: "Liked everything from service to comfort"
Cons: "Singapore Airlines always boast themselves as first class service. That is just bs. At night when I was hungry, I asked the flight attendant for some snack, both a male and a female served at my cabin said, "we don't have that." I expected SQ staff to serve one step further, instead of stopping at a no. Can't you recommend something? Throughout the entire trip, whenever I asked something, the way they answered always made me feel that I was a trouble to them. Is it because I was in an economy class and that's how you treat me? SQ, you may want to change what you are proud of. It's no longer a first class service, at least not to us poor economy class passengers."
Pros: "Great service, great experience."
Cons: "I liked it all."
Pros: "great service. new plane. excellent video system."
Cons: "not much to complain about."
Pros: "To be fair, my rating will be very high due to it being the first time flying Business Class on Singapore Airlines. Unfortunately it was a short flight so I didn't et a chance to experience the whole service properly as I needed. I felt like royalty with the service offered by your staff who consistantly came to check if everything was in order without making a nuisance. Fantastic food and beverage options too. Overall a great experience, but would have liked it to be a 12hr experience instead of 5."
Cons: "Flight was over too quickly."
Pros: "Food & condition"
Cons: "Crew were unfriendly and rude"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled during peak season with little notice time Lack of service Lack of compensation"
Cons: "Food not so good"
Cons: "Breakfast was pathetic. Not fresh. For 16 hours flight only two meals were served and no snacks were provided"
Pros: "I have always enjoyed flying on Singapore Airlines. There were no delays on my connecting flight coming out of Tokyo to Los Angeles. The huge plane was like flying in a small "transportable town.""
Cons: "I had a long connection wait in Tokyo, but that was not too bad since I got a great price on the round trip ticket - less than $700!"
Pros: "Crew and staff were great and accommodating."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Pros: "Crew was great. Boarding was efficient and timely."
Cons: "Vegetarian fare was not pleasing and seemed extremely repetitive."
Pros: "Nice aircraft - A380, so comfortable seats. Good staff and service. In flight entertainment is also very good."
Cons: "At Sydney airport the line for bag drop was longer than regular check in for economy. The ground staff waited till an hour before boarding to speed things up despite numerous passengers alerting them to this. The bag drop took 1 hour even though I had checked in online. The food was sub par because I had chosen a no seafood meal. Lamb chops without sauce as well as a very poor steak, again without any sauces."
Cons: "Baggage was extremely delayed. Boarding and take off were delayed too"
Pros: "Crew was very rude both to and from Sydney. Always made people feel like they were a burden and they didn’t want to even be there. Will never fly Delta again, especially internationally."
Cons: "Hire employees that at least pretend they enjoy their job."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "Customer service"
Pros: "The views on this flight are good. The crew was just ok and they should explain where the restroom is."

Pros: "tCrew was good. On one side of airplane in main cabin, bathroom was twice size of normal airplane bathrooms. This was welcome."
Cons: "Seats were reasonable."
Cons: "The flight is operated by Air France and I would have preferred Delta. It was extremely cramped but the food was excellent and it was on time"
Cons: "It was great"
Cons: "I really like more legs room and comfort and crew member were very good and helpful. Regarding food I say it’s just ok."
Pros: "Seat was decent and only a $10 upgrade. Worth it!"
Cons: "Wasn’t clear what boarding group was up. I don’t usually fly delta so maybe I’m just not used to the system but something on the video screen at the gate saying where they were in boarding would have helped. I wasn’t the only one that seemed lost."
Pros: "Comfortable and clean plane, crew professional and nice."
Pros: "The entire thing, food, service, and ..."
Cons: "More room in each seat"
Pros: "Delta always does a superior job - domestically and internationally!"
Cons: "Everything was perfect!"
Pros: "All okay except baggage check in and baggage claim."
Cons: "Delta Baggage handler accused my g/f of lying about active military status. Refused to accept her military ID. She is a first responder in a unit that responds to search and rescue and terrorist attacks and was returning from three days of maneuvers. Baggage lost. Still not here forty hours later."
Pros: "The entire process was easy and seamless. The flight staff was professional and accommodating. Free liquor. Great food."
Cons: "- Put a special meal request. Meal request (vegan vegetarian) was confirmed on my boarding pass. However, when service came, flight attendant informed me that "I don't have any left. sorry". So I went 15 hours without food. - Ceiling light was "broken" and falling off. The light would not turn off, so I went 15 hours with no sleep. Overall very rude and low standard service."
Cons: "mi luggage has not arraive! im in the city with out stuff and it will delay my trip schedule"
Pros: "Fast easy on time"
Pros: "Not on time"
Cons: "2 hour delay"
Pros: "I love flying Delta and my flight to Australia was incredible. I like the fact that I can check two bags free and the free inflight messaging and entertainment. Some of the staff were very polite and friendly."
Cons: "The seat I was in was broken. It moved and I was stuck sitting on metal. There was no leg room. The plane used going to Australia was a lot roomier this plane was old. Some of the flight attendants were very unfriendly and seemed to be bothered by the fact they had to do their job. The entertainment system had to be rebooted multiple times and the usb on the seats didn’t work. They ran out of food during lunch."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable, and I appreciate the eye shades. There was a tremendous amount of turbulence on the flight that seemed to last for hours without a break. I have flown this route many times before and don’t remember turbulence that lasted so long without a change. The seatbelt sign was not on and the plane felt like a small boat in choppy waters."
Cons: "The food tastef awful and was minimal."
Pros: "Flight was on time, flight crew was great"
Cons: "Seats weren't very comfortable and the iPod chargers were broke in 2 of our 3 seat row"
Pros: "Boarding was quick, gate agent upgraded my middle seat to an exit row window for free (or so I thought), decent movie options"
Cons: "Some of the crew seemed a bit grumpy, was not given the seat I was told I got, not much leg room in economy, was given wrong meal, first meal was taken away without being asked, second meal was stale (french toast), flight was a bit warm, bathrooms not stocked"
Pros: "Movie selection"
Cons: "I used the call button for the attendant and no one came for a long time"
Pros: "Empty seats, room to spread out"
Pros: "on time, good food, good films enough space to sleep in economy."
Cons: "the stewardess only went up one side of the plane offering eye shades and when i asked for one she seemed really miffed."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and efficient"
Cons: "Very minimal legroom. Screaming children behind me kicking my seat during flight"
Pros: "Lots of water being offered. Lucky to have extra seat for comfort."
Cons: "It seemed longer than the estimated time. The food was bland. My husband's entertainment system worked, mine didn't. We had hit a lot of rough air during time over Pacific. Would have been nice if the pilot would have given more information."
Pros: "Landed from Sydney at 8am. Flew to San Francisco at 4pm. Long wait. Not good."
Cons: "Landed in Los Angeles at 8am. Left for San Francisco at 4pm. Aweful."
Pros: "service and accommodations."
Cons: "Ran out of a meal that I wanted. One flight attendant forgot to hand me utensils with my dinner meal."
Pros: "We were treated very well and it was a short, sweet flight. Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "Staff pretty friendly. Plane clean. Ran on time. Good communication."
Cons: "No option for tv/movie on a longer flight. And really? One tiny snack for a longer flight too?? Little more room in seats would be nice."
Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "We didn't get our seat assignment until we got to the gate. Attendant said it was because tickets bought too close to take off don't get to pick seats, but we bought our tickets about three weeks before. Also, my boyfriend and I sat in a full row while the row in front of us only had one person. It would've made more sense to put that person in one of our seats and us in that row to give four people more space instead of just one."
Pros: "Staff on the plane was courteous although they skipped half of us for snacks & forgot some requests for water"
Cons: "Was not able to check in online. Was not able to select my seat online. I was told I would be able to do both of these things. Spent 30 minutes trying to find a number to someone at Delta to check in & select seat. I was in Australia & all Delta offices were closed because it was Sunday. Although I had an internationally calling plan, no calls to Delta US would go through. finally found someone through a back channel that would help me. We boarded an hour late, and staff would not answer any of our questions about what was going on or how late we would arrive (they sped up the fight so that we landed on time). Flight ran out of drinking WATER after the first service. Half of our section (Economy Plus) was skipped for snacks. An unruly child was allowed to scream for almost the entire flight & was running up & down the aisles. NOTHING was said to the parents by staff members. Was absolutely the worst behaving child with who I've had to fly."
Pros: "Staff were awesome. Give them a raise."
Pros: "great service and a quick flight"
Pros: "Plenty of entertainment options Frequent meals and snacks Attentive service from flight crew"
Cons: "Boarding process was slower than anticipated One of our bags did not make it"
Pros: "Cabin crew were excellent and so friendly and down to earth."
Cons: "The seats are very hard but I find this with all the airlines now"
Pros: "Lady said she was taking the seat I paid an upgrade fee for. Crew did nothing. Said I should take her seat."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and ensured you had everything to your comfort . Great selection on movies . The food and wine selection was divine. Great service"
Pros: "I'm an American ex-pat who travels to and from between the US and Australia. I do whatever I can to fly on Australian rather than American airlines, as they are always much better in every regard. But in this case it wasn't feasible, and I found myself on a Delta flight. I'd say the overall experience was somewhere between okay-good. Nothing major to complain about, but nothing to rave about either. The entertainment options were decent. I appreciated the variety of newly released movies. However, I would have liked a greater selection of TV shows, and the availability of more episodes. I also appreciated the availability of internet access, but I don't understand why it has to be quite *so* pricey. Surely they could make a bit more on greater volume if they dropped the price a bit. I didn't purchase access, but I would have if it were 40-50% cheaper. The comfort of the plane seemed the same as any of the alternatives. Boarding and deplaning were as they should be."
Cons: "The service from the crew though was simply ok. They were just friendly enough not to be rude, but no more than that. Virgin Australia and Qantas consistently have much happier crews, who make you feel like a dignified guest, even in economy. The food was average at best, and they served two meals where the Australian airlines would serve three on the same flight. They also offered less in the way of snacks and drink refills. It seemed like they were cutting corners here, which I don't appreciate on a 15 hour flight. Also, they said they "proudly serve Starbucks coffee". After drinking it, I don't think they should be proud of that! Again, overall it was a decent experience. Nothing flashy, but nothing too bad either. If the costs are comparable for your flight, you should certainly choose one of the Australian carriers. You'll get better service from the crew and better food. The one caveat, however, is that Delta has WiFi, whereas at the date of writing this, the Australian carriers do not. While access is exorbitant, if you really need to get some work done on the plane, you might choose Delta for this reason alone."
Pros: "The crew is always great. I liked the environment was cooler. It doesn't need to be refrigerator cold but keeping things on the cooler side is helpful."
Cons: "The boarding process is always horrible. Folks crowd the gate before their class is called. It creates anxiety and edginess. Never a good way to start a trip. While it always goes relatively quickly I feel it should be more organized and folks made to follow a system. Cramming right up against the ticket counter doesn't do anyone any good."
Pros: "Fairly comfortable and uneventful. The flight was delayed for an hour and a half, so we arrived in L.A. later than expected. The crew was excellent and friendly, Boarding was a bit crazy but in the end we all found our seat. My flight attendant was terrific. She did all she could to fix the problem to no avail, Kudos to her."
Cons: "The trip was okay. Unfortunantly my movie player quit after the first movie so I was left to reading. The coffee was horrible but the food was great. Good choices in the menu. I did get a $50.00 rebate due to the faulty video player, but seriously, what can you do with $50..00 on Delta?"
Pros: "Loved it all. That's good advice above :)"
Cons: "It was a blast!"
Pros: "Entertainment was fine."
Cons: "Food variety for lactose intolerant. Crew was bare able."
Pros: "We flew 1st class and this was out first time on a 767. Wow! Amazing seats that recline as well as foot rests that extend. USB and electrical outlets, bigger tray tables, massaging seats, etc. I had a special meal request and the flight attendant was very professional and pleasant about it."
Cons: "Nothing. It was great!"
Cons: "Connection flight from LAX to Seattle was dropped off of booking completely. When Delta was able to fix the changes in Sydney Australia they put my husbands ticket as a standby instead of putting him in an assigned seat and reported that they couldn't fix it that we would have to wait and get to LAX before the changes could be made again. There was a one and a half hour flight delay from LAX to Seattle. From Sydney Australia to LAX entertainment system didn't work the whole entire flight, they were screaming children the entire flight, and Delta had double booked seats on several different people. There were no apologies and no compensation for any of the incidences."
Pros: "First flight I have ever flown that offered free beverages of all kinds. Food wasn't too bad. Entertainment choices were outstanding. Pilot was like a tour guide."
Cons: "Cramped space for 14 hours. Some crew were somewhat grumpy and seemed rushed, even though we had plenty of time."
Cons: "Lost luggage, 4 hours late, missed connection, had to re check in, etc."
Pros: "Great nonstop, friendly crew"
Pros: "The movies"
Cons: "Why are stews so rude."
Pros: "The first flight had built in video screens."
Cons: "But video screens in all aircraft."
Cons: "Economy seating legroom could be better for long-haul flight"
Cons: "Basic Economy forces you to check bags for a fee and prohibits carry on luggage. I was not prepared for this when checking in. Luckily, we were able to downsize into one suitcase which we checked in."
Cons: "Such a long domestic flight should have entertainment in business class at least"
Pros: "On time, rare for a full flight."
Cons: "A little quicker on the baggage upon arrival would have been nice."
Cons: "Has lots of contradicting texts about flight status"
Pros: "Good seats, service, express baggage handling."
Pros: "Food could be a lot better and healthier."
Cons: "Plane was not overbooked."
Pros: "I had my own row"
Cons: "Seats are still so bad. I think I got a headache from looking at my phone the whole flight."
Pros: "Paid for Econoplus seat but was assigned a seat in the row before the emergency exit. Seat uncomfortable didn’t recline had to go through refund process"
Pros: "The international flight was very good. Staff were excellent and very friendly."
Cons: "The international terminal at LAX is terrible as far as people being on hand or being able to offer assistance on getting to your next connecting flight. Getting 30 minutes to make a connecting flight that is on the other side of the airport with noone being able to tell you where your connecting flight is is almost impossible. The in-flight entertainment console was broken and was unusable during the flight. It would work for 5 minutes then glitch and the screen would flash until you stowed it away and waited 10 minutes to try again."
Cons: "Seats were incredibly uncomfortable. Why no food on a 4 hr+ flight?"
Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "Hard seats....."
Pros: "Excellent trip. Took basic economy. Only like needed to pack for weekend. Got the job done."
Cons: "No frills. It wasn't needed but gotta think of something to put here."
Pros: "Flight crew did everything possible to make up time lost from a maintenance delay."
Cons: "Crew member splattered me with tonic from a can he opened for the passenger in front of me. No harm done, however."
Pros: "I liked that we flew directly into Palm Springs, which is my local airport."
Cons: "I didn't like how tight the seating spaces were. I'm a thin, small person and I was not comfortable. I can't imagine how a taller or heavier person could be accommodated comfortably. I never thought I'd say this ... but I've now decided I prefer taking the train because domestic air travel is just too confining!"
Pros: "That the plane got me back to the US."
Cons: "Flight crew should learn how to smile. In general, not even vaguely friendly. Food was the absolute worse I have eaten in many, many years ( I have millions of miles of air travel). Seats old and hard and extremely close together."
Pros: "Courteous crew, choice of snacks, on time"
Pros: "Wasn't dragged off flight."
Cons: "Bathrooms so small you can't even turn around. And I'm 5'7", 135lbs!!"
Pros: "Arrived early!!!"
Cons: "No snacks!"
Pros: "We traveled with 4 kids and staff was great to make the flight as comfortable as possible. 787 Dreamliner was awesome"
Pros: "Lots of entertainment options and friendly crew."
Cons: "It was just a very long trip, so the seats became uncomfortable after a while."
Pros: "I was able to get to my destination safely"
Pros: "All aspects - crew were pleasant, flight was on time and smooth, meal was reasonable"
Pros: "The crew was comfortable and friendly, overall cruisy for a 14 hr flight."
Cons: "We departed 1.5 hrs late, over a baggage discrepancy and had to return from the tarmac to the gate, which seemed unnecessary and probably had something to do with the same passenger they were calling every five minutes for over an hour before we even began boarding. We then arrived late, which extremely rushed my already super tight transfer in LAX and cause a lot of stress and frustration with the airline."
Cons: "The only disappointment was that internet via WiFi was all but unusable. If the service is not viable while on this route, it should not be offered."
Cons: "Lack of leg room"
Pros: "Will never use united."
Pros: "Very little good things to say besides it was a new plane"
Cons: "They had one of four meal options left by the time they got to me, a platinum member. The seat also would not recline to 180 degrees"
Cons: "Delayed because of baggage not being ready for flight."
Pros: "Stewardess were very nice"
Cons: "Tried to change flight to different day cost was rediculus united wanted an additional amount equal to the cost of the whole round trip not very helpful Were TSA approved going but not returning At 84 did not appreciate this. Will not fly United again if I have a choise"
Cons: "Ron working the check in desk at United gate B67 to B79 was extremely rude, condescending and combative. I was appealed & offended by him and the way he spoke to me. I also observed his poor treatment of other passengers I will not longer use United Airlines for my flight needs"
Pros: "Updates from pilots Airbourne"
Cons: "The gate told us it was a late arriving aircraft but that flight wasn't late.. it was a negative swap and there was no way for the inbound crew and aircraft to be on time.. just tell the truth.. feet were freezing"
Cons: "Short flight everything was fine"
Pros: "My whole experience was easy and comfortable. A big thank you to the woman who helped me check in at the United kiosk in Sydney. She saw that I was struggling and assisted me until completion. The flight was uneventful, which is really good! I also had the entire row to myself which gave me room to spread out for the 13 hour flight. Great experience:)"
Cons: "The food was probably the weakest part of my flight from Sydney to Los Angeles. The eggs had no taste. I'd prefer a simple oatmeal or cereal for breakfast."
Pros: "Finally a United flight that left on time and arrived on time!"
Cons: "The entire United experience left me wanting something, anything from this airline. Unfortunately the only thing they will get from me is no more chances for service recovery. They failed miserably!"
Pros: "Very good! Very nice and friendly employees!"
Pros: "Attended to us constantly"
Cons: "Everything was Great!"
Pros: "We boarded in record time and took off in record time. The landing was so smooth I hardly noticed it. Perfection!"
Cons: "Anything I didn't like is typical plane stuff - small cramped seats, one cup of soda instead of the entire can, etc. Nothing unusual!"
Pros: "Price we paid was excellent."
Cons: "It was just my wife and myself and we didn't even get to seat together. They want extra for being able to select your seat in advance. Food was terrible. Seats recline probably 2" at the top of the backrest so no comfort there at all."
Cons: "they didn't serve us, not even water. Also they tried to land once and they could not and then they took us back and retried. Not an explanation or anything.. I believe that the pilots didn't know what they were doing.... I fly frequently but this is one of the worst experience, plus have in mind that you go to Palm Springs to enjoy and relax not to die.., If you have turbulence least announce the passengers and prepare them."
Pros: "The crew was very nice, the plane seating and room was comfortable, no complaints."
Pros: "I liked the price of my flight."
Cons: "The flight was VERY full, even though I checked in exactly 24 hours before my flight departed, I was in boarding group 5 and by the time my group was able to board, there was zero overhead space left for carry on bags. I also thought it was lame to have to pay $25 for my checked bag on both flights."
Pros: "Nice crew, good flight."
Cons: "No Wi-Fi, short flight so not big issue"
Pros: "The flight was pretty empty so I had an entire row"
Cons: "I asked a staff member a question about my checked luggage and I felt like he blew me off. No big deal though."
Pros: "The Qantas agent controlling access to the International Terminal from the Domestic Terminal in Sydney was the best I have ever encountered. Not only did he unravel a very complicated situation created by United, he helped get cell phone to the connecting flight after I left it on first flight. Service on the flight was good and better in Economy than Business First on United."
