Cons: "The flat bed is not comfotable needed help from attendanr all the time felt like i was constricted"
Pros: "The plane was new. The in flight entertainment system was good, although I never got to experience it fully because the Flight attendant kept switching it off, as I had paid extra (an arm and a leg) for a “bulkhead seat”"
Cons: "The service was beyond awful! The Flight Attendants had a “could care less” attitude. I had special ordered a meal, and they gave me the wrong one. I did not want to make a big deal, so I just ate it. Then they did not offer any beverages when the meal came! I literally had to beg them to make me their famous “Singapore sling”. Shocking really!!. When I had my coffee, my request for cream and sugar went ignored THREE times. Finally they grudgingly gave me only cream, rendering my coffee undrinkable. .....And the list goes on. Never ever will I travel on this horrid airline again!"

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: "Service and food"
Pros: "food. schedule was on time"
Pros: "The service crew served us well. They are friendly and helpful"

Cons: "Foods serving were too slow for economy class. Not enough selections for entertainment."
Cons: "In flight crew manager in greenish dress was rude! Seemed like there weren’t enough restrooms on flight."

Apparently anxiety is something that Singapore airline are very concerned about me, that needs a doctor note to prove that I'm okey to fly. poor coummcation skill and power play"

Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Crew, plane, punctuality"
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Kids' meal didn't have fruits. No cellphone charger."
Pros: "Had good experience on Bangalore sfo return journey. In particular your ground staff and aboard the flight were so warm and receptive. Only thing is that seating in the economy class could a little more better. Thnx SA"
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. new plane. excellent video system."
Cons: "not much to complain about."
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: "Excellent service, food, in-flight entertainment (what choices!!), and the plane was very up to date as well. Made for a very very pleasant flight experience. Especially for how long the flight was (18 hours or so)"
Cons: "The get out and get back in halt at Hong Kong. Practically the entire flight had to do this, quite wasteful. Bad customer experience. Find a better way please! If Hong Kong makes you do that switch over to another airport, better yet make no halt. I have flown direct from SF to Singapore before so not sure why this halt."
Cons: "Breakfast was pathetic. Not fresh. For 16 hours flight only two meals were served and no snacks were provided"
Cons: "I have no complaint"
Cons: "Cabin too hot"
Pros: "I loved the movie selection and the food options."
Cons: "The woman behind me kept insisting that I keep my chair in the upright position. With two crying babies on the plane, I was trying to relax and sleep as much as possible on the 12.5 hr flight. What bothered me even more is that when the woman asked the flight attendant to tell me to put my seat up, the flight attendant complied instead of telling the woman it was my seat to do as I wished. Why make the seats recline if they are going to bother the people behind? Why tell me to put my seat up if it was not a requirement for all (ie during take off or landing)? I did not appreciate this and it made my flight extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "Just as previous reviews mentioned, this is a top notch airline even when flying coach. The staff was courteous and attentive, the food was good and the flight overall was comfortable. I'd fly with Singapore again in a heartbeat."
Pros: "I like your new entertainment devices and big screen"
Cons: "the number of movies is a little bit less. the category of videos is not clear."
Pros: "crew and service and food was excellent MJ from local staff went above and beyond to assist when i missed my connection she was kind, compassionate and efficient A+++++++"
Cons: "missed connection in Seoul. announcements should be louder, was in rest room opp the gate and did not hear any announcements for boarding text message should be sent if passenger missing."
Pros: "The flight took off 10 minutes earlier and landed about 30 minutes earlier. I ordered seafood meals and the food was delicious and the service was excellent. The movies and flight info on the screen were very easy to operate."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and the service vert good."
Cons: "The food had room for improvement."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The seat I had booked and was confirrmed was not available, double booked."

Cons: "It would be better if the armrests went up."
Pros: "Can’t remember"
Cons: "Food selection specially for vegetarian"
Pros: "The crew, the entertainment, the cleanliness and the overall experience was lovely"
Cons: "Lights could have gone fully off during a red eye international for sleeping."
Cons: "Had to pay for most movies. They need to bring around water more often and actually offer it to window seats rather than handing a glass to the aisle and walking off."
Cons: "Air New Zealand needs to get onto the TSA Precheck program and the agent at check-in (in the biz line) started scolding me for not meeting the economy baggage allowance (only 1 small 7kg carry on), but everything else was perfect. Best biz class flight I’ve ever had, mostly because of the cabin crew"
Pros: "Everything. Best service and great seat room."
Cons: "Not clear that I wouldn't be able to check a bag for my return flight. I flew to New Zealand with a large bag and then when I went to check in for my return flight they told me I couldn't check it to bring it back and my only option was to cargo it, which was not helpful being that the cargo was out of the airport and I needed to catch my flight. I was luckily able to check it on a separate flight my boyfriend was going on. But I would have either have had to leave my bag or miss my flight if he hadn't been there. It should have been more apparent that I wouldn't have been able to check it on the way back. It makes no sense to be able to bring a bag to New Zealand and not bring it back. That was very frustrating and overall I was very disappointed with this experience."
Cons: "it was very cold"
Pros: "Solid friendly n professional flight crew."
Cons: "When checking in we asked about an exit row seat. The NZ official claimed the flight was full n nothing available. Once on the 2/3 full plane, 9 of the 12 exit row seats were empty. Bottom line was she was lazy and unprofessional in simply Lieing."
Pros: "vvery comfortable flight"
Pros: "The service was very nice. The food was good. The entertainment choices were good as well."
Cons: "The seating was to crowded, you could tell that an extra seat was added in the middle section. What was once three seats was now four. Very disapointing. A deal breaker for long flights."
Pros: "The friendliness of the crew."
Pros: "everythign aboht the trip was great"
Pros: "The staff was incredible. Additionally I loved all the entertainment options."
Cons: "We missed our connection flight slightly due to the fact that we weren't able to connect our baggage to British Airways and that the flight came in late."
Cons: "Very small seat"
Pros: "It was simply fantastic - all of it!"
Pros: "Courteous crew members and nice aircraft. New technology at check-in allows faster drops off for luggage! Replaces face time with real people (jobs) but it's also very futuristic. Flight attendant brought water very quickly when I requested it on my screen not knowing it if would work."
Cons: "We don't get sleepers to walk around in like in Aeroflot! My map didn't work on the way there so I couldn't learn fun facts about my flight!"
Pros: "REally liked the plane, crew, and accommodations."
Cons: "Our flight from Rarotonga was 2.5 hours late, causing us to leave Rarotonga at 2:40 AM ! The flight and crew were wonderful, but we were exhausted as sleep time was cut short because of the lateness of the flight."
Cons: "Economy was too squished. Hard to eat with people next to you."
Cons: "Couldn't check in online and book seats. That was a bummer."
Pros: "When booking, we were unable to choose our seating hence we were not sitting together. At the airport we asked if there was a way they could put the three of us together. Air New Zealand was able to accommodate our request. It was a 12 hour flight. We were very grateful."
Pros: "Amazing service. Friendly staff. Sat in row 38. Seat was comfortable and foot rest was amazing! I would highly recommend air New Zealand!"
Pros: "Everyone on the plane acted like they were doing you a favor by flying with them more than likely we won't use them again ... kinda of like Frontier airline"
Pros: "Nothing stood out. They do provide ear phone on the flight."
Cons: "Seating was very cramped and I'm only median built.."
Pros: "Flight had gluten free meals. Crew was professional"
Cons: "45 minutes late so missed connecting flight. While anz booked me on the next flight, international flights shouldn't be that late"
Pros: "Fun and plentiful entertainment. Great comfort."
Pros: "The flight crew was great. They keep teverything movies ng and were polite and happy throughout the flight we will definately fly them again!!"
Pros: "The crew were wonderful! Lots of leg room, quick and helpful boarding. Loved my first time on Air New Zealand."

Pros: "Everything good"
Cons: "coming back to work"
Pros: "Very friendly and frequent service while in-flight. It was great having my own monitor built into the seat to watch available movies or tv shows I wanted to for the duration of the flight. Flight attendants would walk the aisles every two hours and offer water to everyone. I had never flown Air New Zealand before, but now it's one of my top airlines."
Cons: "The only complaint would be that there was no in-flight wifi available onboard."
Cons: "Airplane to cold. Had to wear a sweatshirt and cover up with a blanket the whole flight."
Cons: "Food was horrible"
Cons: "They lost my bag and the flight was delayed."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Boarding and replanting was smooth and efficient."
Cons: "Seats were tiny. Arm rests did not rise. Seats barely tilted back. You had to fight with the touch screen entertainment system to get it to do anything. Also it seemed like we sought out the most turbulent altitude possible."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable. The crew was friendly it was a smooth flight the food was good and I enjoyed the snacks also."
Cons: "There was't anything I didn't like I thought it was all good"
Pros: "Great crew, great entertainment"

Pros: "Great service. Food was excellent. Crew was friendly. Best transAtlantic flight experience I've had."
Pros: "The choice of movies was good! And seats were comfortable!"
Cons: "Would have liked bottles of water instead of cups of water as they are easier to store if you don't want to drink it right away. Food was mediocre!"
Pros: "The food and service was great. The plane was clean and very nice."
Cons: "The infotainment system in my wife's seat 39J stopped working about half way through the flight."
Pros: "Service was excellent , food was very good. Comfortable. Flight."
Pros: "Food and entertainment were great. Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Sitting in between the economy sections meant everyone with a crying child should come stand by my seat until their baby stops crying."
Pros: "Being almost home"
Cons: "The quality of care they give everyone that rides the plane"
Pros: "Again, they could not find us in the system so we were the last people to board the flight. Thank goodness I brought my paperwork showing the flights and that we had paid."
Pros: "The TV/movie entertainment was nice."
Cons: "They didn't have a record of the vegan meal I preordered (even though they had others). I thus got a bowl of plain lettuce and tomatoes with nothing on it (e.g., no dressing) and had to wait until everyone had been served, finished eating, and had their dishes cleared. Only then (when I was famished) did I get a plate of uncovered vegan dishes that seemed to have been pieced together from what the other vegan diners had not eaten. The whole time I waited they kept telling me they were cooking rice for me, but I never got rice so that seemed to have just been a delay tactic."
Pros: "Staff were kind and efficient Food tasted great (for airplane food) Many media options. Lots of variety of current and classic films."
Cons: "3 under seat storage in front of 4 center section seats in coach A777"
Pros: "Crew was very sweet. Free wine. Spacious."
Pros: "Entertainment was great! Comfort was decent but much better that the previous flight with Air Canada. The overall the feeling that I get from Air NZ and their employees is that they have FUN! It's infectious and makes for a great flight experience."
Cons: "I wish there was air conditioning. It was very warm ok the plane."
Pros: "Good crew. Great pilots."
Cons: "Food. Seat comfort."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "A little tight on time between transfers."
Pros: "I liked the comfort of my location and seat"
Cons: "No wifi on a over 14 hour flight is ridiculous in this day and age. They didn't have wifi on both my flights. I would think twice before flying an airline so far without wifi."
Pros: "The cabin attendants were excellent in carrying iut their work and responsibilities. They were friendly too."
Cons: "I tried to check in online a day before the flight as per email advisory but most of the seats were blocked already and whatever seats left open were only a few and those were tbe ones in the middle or the ones that you need to pay additional. so I decided to check in at the airport but their staff didn’t help much. They still gave us seats away from each other even if I explained that we have some health issues that’s why we need to stay together."
Cons: "i had a surfboard bag that weighed 11lbs and my daughter had a surfboard bag that weighed 21 lbs and we are being charged $200 each both ways for a total charge of $800 round trip. This is an outragous fee for surfboard and other airlines specificly Alaskian Air, Quanties, and Virgin Australia have been letting us travel with surfboard bags for free that weight 3 times that much. I will never take Cathay Pacific again as we paid more for these flights because we had heard they do not charge for surfboard and they have great service. I had a total of $1200 fspending money for food and transportation for my trip to Bali. That leaves me with $400. Never again will I travel with Cathay Pacific and I will be spreading the word through social Media! Not a Happy Customer!!!"
Pros: "Except the end. I’ve been waiting for my luggage for over 30 mins."
Cons: "Waiting for my luggage"
Pros: "Comfy seats and the entertainment for economy class were the best perks and price as well. Flight was also on time."
Cons: "The food was just awful. 2 meals were provided and both were chicken or beef with junky dessert. Bring your own food."
Pros: "Given we were in economy for a 15+ hour flight, things went very well. Seat was okay, food better than average, entertainment was reasonable."
Cons: "I didn’t like that I was in economy, and would have preferred business, but that’s what I paid for so all is well."
Pros: "Took off late, missed transfer flight, payed over 6 hours said they would buy lunch dinner. Could pay for hamburger with it, frltf"
Pros: "Cathay Pacific offers terrific service and decent food. The entertainment selection was good. Sitting in economy is tough for 14.5 hours unless you’re in a pod."
Cons: "Seats were a bit cramped, not a lot of legroom. The overhead bin for the middle row in aisle 64 is smaller than other bins."
Pros: "service was excellent"
Cons: "boarding took very long."
Pros: "The entertainment is in regards to the movie choices that I had. I wish my screen was a little bigger."
Cons: "My flight from Los Angeles to Hong Kong was cancelled due to a problem with the plane. I stood in line for 2 and a half hours at the airport only to have them tell me this. There was not visible sense of urgency on part of the staff at Cathay Pacific and they did not seem to have a contingency plan to deal with such a situation. I especially felt sorry for some of the elderly people who were also in line all that time with noting to drink and no place to sit."
Pros: "Everyone is kind!"
Pros: "The food was great, 2 free bags checked, free food and free movies! Very nice staff all around amazing."
Pros: "Overall from accommodations to friendly staff my experience with the Cathay Pacific air is outstanding. I will recommend it to all of my family & friends! Thank you CPAir!"

Cons: "Delayed flight"
Cons: "Upon arrival in Hong Kong, Cathay representatives automatically re-booked my connecting flight to Taipei assuming I would miss the connection. This was not the case. I was able to get to the connecting gate on time. Cathay representatives in Hong Kong were rude and unhelpful in re-issuing my boarding pass for my originally scheduled flight to Taipei."
Pros: "hospitality is very good.comfortable journey."
Cons: "I was place right next to the washroom. As soon as I sat down, I can smell the washroom ,which was not clean properly because of the washroom odor."
Cons: "The cushions were uncomfortable for a 14 hr trip. Not much choices in food. The omelette was bland."
Pros: "Excellent Entertainment Choices. Wonderful Staff/crew"
Pros: "Clean lavatories"
Cons: "Always ran out of what we wanted for our meal, for both meals we didn't get our chosen meal. Ran out of snacks, not enough food. Water served from pitcher tasted moldy."
Pros: "Overall service excellent."
Cons: "The gap time between the connecting flight is short u have to pass the security and after that a long walk going to the gate of the next flight other than that it's excellent. My concern is if the passenger has a health problem he/she going to have a shortness of breath. The crew/staff who assist me excellent."
Pros: "Stewardesses were nice and accomodating"
Cons: "Plane seemed a bit older for an international flight. Not much legroom, poor entertainment options no games and there were no adjustable air vents."

Cons: "Seats are too narrow. There's not much to move around. I'm a 56 year old woman weigh 107 lbs., otherwise everything is great."
Pros: "Nice staff, clean planes."
Cons: "Only issue was connecting gate in Hong Kong was extremely far and had to run to make connection. A bit of warning might have helped."

Pros: "Service was ok"
Cons: "I booked my reservation with kayak and pick out choice seats , when I check in was told by Cathay that they do not honor seat reservation from a 3rd party. I also paid for the exit seats so We have open space.. Very disappointed."
Pros: "Love the stop over. Love HK."
Cons: "Seats and leag room ar so small. Vey uncomfortable."
Pros: "The crew on this particular flight were incredible. They went above and beyond on every aspect. The best service I've ever received on a flight and I fly 40-50 times a year."
Pros: "Good food and comfortable seats . Checked in carry on for free- plus for me and my family !"
Pros: "Food, service, in-flight entertainment, and overall feeling of safety and comfort."
Pros: "This plane was an Airbus 350. Seems to be the lated Airbus model. Business class section very much like the Boing 777, maybe a little better in some design modification of the seats."
Cons: "Difficult transit at the very large Hong Kong airport. Too much walking to got to document control to enter and leave Hong Kong."
Pros: "The wonderful people and the service they provided with a great attitude."
Cons: "The food was only OK."
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "Good us awful. Brought a lot if my own."
Pros: "Everything about the flight"
Cons: "I loved everything"
Pros: "Food and crew"
Cons: "Passenger next me kept getting up and flopping down in the seat, waking me up."
Pros: "reclining seats."
Pros: "There wasnt much to like about the flight except that we didnt end up dead."
Cons: "Where do you start? Boarding process made no sense so i wont even try to explain it. Just trust me. Once we got on the plane they wouldnt let me plug into the usb port while we were on the ground. Food Service was terrible. They woke me up (minutes after id fallen asleep) for both food service. First time i thought was accident. Second time i asked them not to wake me up and they said i have to get a do not disturb sticker (why wasnt i just given one before so i could make the decision to use it or not on my own?) Also the food was terrible. I dont expect much from airline food but i can say ive had acceptable meals on other airlines (emirates and lufthansa). The food was not what i expected for one of the highest rated airlines. The flight attendant had me put the seat up during food service so the lady behind me could eat. Wtf?? Never had to do that on another airline. When i was not sleeping they rarely came down the isles with water or juice trays. (I saw it once toward the end of the flight)...and trust me i didnt miss it because i was sleeping. When i did get water i had to beg for ice as well."
Pros: "The food was decent so that was the only good thing."
Cons: "The flight delayed the connecting flight so I ended up waiting for an extra 5 hours to catch another flight."
Pros: "Friendly and efficient crew"
Cons: "My knees pressed up against the seat in front of me. Tiny cramped seats for a very long flight."
Pros: "Cathay Pacific always seems to have top cabin personnel. They are very attentive and really seem to try to meet your needs, more so than the crews of other airlines. Flying is not a particularly fun experience, but Cathay does its best. It's a bit hit and miss with the food, but this time my special request meals (Asian vegetarian) were pretty good."
Cons: "These 777's have really crappy legroom. A330's are much more comfortable (well, Airbus in general)."
Pros: "The people who work for the airline are the ones who make it one of the best airlines to take. They provide one of the best customer service experiences I have ever gone through."
Pros: "Premium economy was definitely worth the money. Made a huge difference in the long 15 hour leg. Was great to be able to stretch out, as well as easily step over my seat mate to access the aisle without disturbing them. Reading light was well positioned."
Cons: "I asked for a noodle snack a few hours after dinner and the young, uppity stewardess rolled her eyes at me, like it was a huge imposition. She brought the snack 27 minutes later, cold and handed it to me in a huff. It made the rest of the flight extremely uncomfortable, since I didn't feel comfortable asking for water or anything else the entire 10 hours. It soured my experience with Cathay and definitely spoilt the experience of Premium Economy. The older, more seasoned staff was much nicer and politer."
Pros: "Great crew!"
Pros: "The staff was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "LAX has to get its remodeling completed. Getting to Tom Bradley International terminal and taking the bus to our plane was not impressive. The food on Fiji Air is not good."
Pros: "The crew was amazing! The seats in a business class were very uncomfortable."
Cons: "It’s hard to compare after my recent flight on Emirates which was superb."
Pros: "Pillow and blanket provided!"
Cons: "Flight attendants spoke very loudly during times when most passengers were sleeping, waking everyone around. A personal water bottle would have been nice."
Pros: "Very nice crew and stylish pillows"
Cons: "Food was bland"
Cons: "Small and bland food. Very limited entertainment. TV didnt work but they gave me an ipad."
Cons: "with 39 passengers on a 60 persons flight the following annoncement came up: we need 5 volunteers or we leave 524kg of baggage we have to leave here. Than the locals started to bribe the personel... we have no idea if and when our stuff arrives..."
Pros: "Food was very tasty. In-flight movies were up to date and very good."
Cons: "Seat was hard as a rock. No way to get comfortable on a 10 hour + flight. Seat in front practically is in your face when they recline. I'm not fond of the A330 layout. Give me a 777 any day."
Pros: "Very comfortable and the pilot landed the plane perfectly in bad weather! Thank y'all Fiji Airways!"
Cons: "Too cold- The air con was pumping too high everyone was freezing"
Pros: "Flights were on time. Service was great. I cannot complain about any of my flights on this trip through Fiji Airlines."
Cons: "Poor communications between crews and passengers"
Pros: "Everything was perfect - from the crew, to the plane itself, to the entertainment and blankets and seats -- delightful and easy flight!"
Cons: "They lost our luggage and did not compensate us enough to replace what we needed"
Pros: "Comfort of "quiet zone" seating which was an extra $149 per person."
Cons: "Check in clerk and Manager were not very helpful. Check in was a nightmare with no organization for preferred flyers. Boarding was also disorganized and chaotic."
Pros: "Got to Fiji safe."
Cons: "1. Checked in was very slow. When we got done, we have to run to the gate cuz they are already boarding. 2. Seats were very small, too tight even for people with short legs. 3. Not much movies to choose from, it was an 11 hour flight, at least give us more movies to choose from. 4. Just saw crew once, when they were passing out meals and collecting them."
Cons: "Missed the flight! I find it ridiculous you do not get a "Check In Online" email from Fiji Airways if you do not book directly through them. That, to me, is insane. All Fiji Airways passengers, whether they booked directly or not, should get that email."
Pros: "Everything was great! Can't wait to go"
Pros: "Crew was nicest in the air, so friendly, professional, helpful!"
Cons: "Many glitches in the reservations process: my flight records were messed up on 3 flights. Recommend allowing a LOT of extra time for check in if you fly Fiji!"
Pros: "Easy boarding."
Cons: "The food. The crew can be a little friendlier. They don't seem too happy to work for the company."
Pros: "Free food free booze and free movies music and tv!"
Cons: "The food was only subpar, sloppy eggs and wet chicken but everything else was fine."
Pros: "We love it enjoying the airport the flight service"
Cons: "Airport place for us to sleep love it"
Pros: "Liked how seats reclined more than usual and head rest curved. Good thing blankets were provided because it was freezing cold. Pillow was great for lower back."
Cons: "Need to have special ENCLOSED seats for young children and their parents! It was a horrible night hearing a 2 year scream the entire night! The food smelled so bad coming down the aisle, it was nauseating."
Pros: "Food was great!! Flight attendants provided excellent service. Entertainment was really good, and the plane looked pretty new."
Cons: "There was barely enough room for everyones stuff in the overhead containers. Because of the location of my seat (aisle, just when the number of seats oer row changes) I got bumped on my shoulder quite frequently."
Pros: "I didn't know there was free hot food and beverages so I just took xannies and fell asleep but luckily they woke me up and ate really good chicken for free I was like wtf how is this free and there was no one sitting next to me so I felt like I was in first class"
Cons: "I wish the plane ride was longer I could live on that plane"
Pros: "I'd seen some poor reviews but found the flight to be just fine. Decent economy seats for such a long flight, good service, food, and entertainment options."
Pros: "It was okay the plan was a bit small and uncomfortable for an international flight.."
Cons: "My luggge didn't make the flight...I had to wait almost two days. And the airport is not close to where I was staying. No one offer to compensate for the inconvenience. We had to leave to another island so we was in a rush for our luggage."
Pros: "Everything. Would choose again. Thanks so much."
Pros: "I liked that there was breakfast on the plane"
Cons: "The seats weren't very adjustable or comfortable and there could have been more movie and tv selection for such a long flight"
Pros: "2/4/2 across seating and electrical plug at every seat. So a couple can get one row and one aisle seat. Decent Wine included with meal."
Cons: "food mediocre."
Pros: "Crew was tentative."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "It was crazy cold on the plane. I'm a frequent flyer and never in my life had I been this cold. I had a sweater, a scarf and a blanket, but couldn't relax to sleep as I was shivering the whole time. My friend traveling with me and the people in our row were feeling the same way. Plus they make you remove your blanket for take off and landing, which I've never had to do with other companies. It went from shivering to teeth chattering. I couldn't understand why they served us a hot meal when we got on the plane. Anyone boarding at 11:30 pm should have already eaten, at that point you just want to sleep, not wait another two hours for food to be served and the trays cleaned up."
Pros: "Not much. Bathroom was clean"
Cons: "Some of the TVs were out. Food was just horrible. Barely got one drink, bc stewardess never came back. They ran out of blankets also. U don't get assigned seats until at the airport which is impossible when you have a family of 4."
Pros: "They rebooked us on Air New Zealand."
Cons: "Our flight was canceled."
Cons: "Long time to load luggage. 45 min late"
Pros: "Nothing stood out."
Cons: "Treated like a second tier customer. Rude flight attendants. Did I mention my flights we're delayed 3+ hrs and the plane's engine gave out. That happened. Very poor/mediocre airline. Oh and the seats are extremely uncomfortable. Everyone around was worthy of contempt."
Cons: "We get to LA for our connection and security says we need to check in again, and no one is at the fiji airways desk to check us in! The security guard sees this, lets us through to check in at the gate so we sprint there and 4 agents are standing around saying they are surprised we made it."
Cons: "my seat, i am to big"
Pros: "The planes were clean. The flight attendants were mostly friendly."
Cons: "For an international flight, I would have expected to have a little more room even though I was in economy class. The food was OK. The limitations on checked baggage and carry-ons were not very good. 40 lbs for a checked bag, ok. But only one allowed. I've never had an airline, let alone international, that weighed my carry-on. All in all, it wasn't what I'd expect from an international flight."
Pros: "Cabin crew was efficient and friendly. In general, your baggage policy is horrible. Only airline I'm familiar with that only allows one checked bag?? I believe your aircraft baggage capacity is equal to any other aircraft of the same model so why the one bag limit. The landing in Nadi was horrible. The plane hit so hard on landing that it bounced up and hit hard again. Everyone was scared and holding tight to the seat in front of them. What was equally disturbing was that neither the pilot or co-pilot ever came on the speaker and said ANYTHING! No explanation, apology or anything-complete silence."
Cons: "This was very unprofessional and makes me wonder what was going on in the cockpit? Seemed to take an in ordinarily long time to clear food trays after the meal. They were offering seconds on beverages before they had even cleared the trays."
Cons: "You need to boldly tell your customers BEFORE they buy their tickets that you are one of few international flights that allow only ONE checked bag. Also that you only allow ONE carry-on bag. This information needs to be impossible to miss for your customers! Nowhere online did it say that I was only allowed one of each. I have travelled to and from the US at least 10 times and my husband twice as much as me, at this is the only international flight that we have ever encountered that only allowed one checked bag. I could not pack one bag into the other and I was traveling home, forcing me to pay $180. We also delt with extremely rude people who were condescending and disrespectful at the checkin counter. The seats on the flight were extremely uncomfortable. The crew did not specify what the food was. Instead of saying "chicken curry" they said "chicken". Because they didn't actually say was it was, I chose chicken and the was not able to eat the food because I am allergic to curry. I was also not able to get something else because I had already opened the food. So the dinner that I paid for with my flight, I could not eat. My husband and I will not fly with Fiji airways again."
Pros: "Customer service was nice, the food was ehh."
Cons: "For an international flight, the seats were extremely tight. There could've been a few more movies to choose from."
Pros: "the lady who checked us in wasnt all that helpful. There was a dude at the gate however who was very knowledgeable and helpful. Everything else was average. not bad though"
Pros: "The woman who checked us in helped us a ton by getting our seats switched to be near each other for both this flight and the following flight from nadi to LA. She was great. Most helpful person I came acrossl."
Pros: "Was pleasantly surprised had a great flight."
Pros: "Staff were friendly"
Cons: "Meals were tiny and limited choice. No water coming through all night Seats terribly cramped Bag problem at airport took 3 days to recover Impossible to speak to airline due to limited hours office is open in Auckland"
Pros: "plane was new and clean short destination fly was good"
Pros: "Airplane was almost brand new...great seats..plenty of overhead storage. Staff took good care of us. Food was marginal...but that's what we've come to expect."
Pros: "The Seat assigned was horrible and was unavle to check in Online and the custoner Service was horrible. Worst experience ever"
Cons: "The seats, are getting Narrow. Very constricting."
Pros: "On time. Warm greetings from the pilots. New aircraft, clean, great entertainment."

Cons: "The crew sometimes seems not to be happy with the passengers"
Pros: "Seats we fine"
Cons: "Delay 2 hours"
Pros: "Service and boarding was smooth and friendly."
Pros: "The flight attendance kindly asked the passengers to allow for the people on the back with very thigh connections, due to stupids delays, to deplane first, but of course almost no one listened and as soon the plane reach the gate everyone stranded up clogging the hallway. There should be more education to the passenger in general. If you don't have a connection, just stay put for an extra 5 minutes, is nothing crazy to do."
Cons: "Waiting area completely packed, now sits available at all. Delays, a delay for weather or mechanical issues is understandable, but just because too many human factors, is unfortunately."
Cons: "Breakfast - lots of sugary items"
Cons: "The worst flight we ever been. Delayed for a long time. We wasted our two days of vacation."
Cons: "American Airlines had put my luggage on a flight earlier than me and is still NOT FOUND."
Pros: "Nice seats, good food, good service"
Pros: "The flight was great. Lots of movies to choose from. Food was pretty good too."
Cons: "They moved our flight around multiple times. We first had a layover in Chicago then through multiple emails and one phone call they just flew us straight to London with no layover. It all worked out it was just stressful not knowing exactly when we were flying out and if we were going to make our connecting flights. It did work out and we did make it."
Pros: "The crew has invited my kids to take a picture with them. My wife and I have been impressed."
Pros: "Should have booked AA instead of BA."
Cons: "AA couldn't find BA reservation. poor integration of services"
Pros: "The very long TSA line was very fast. Good job TSA. Flight attendants were very attentive."
Cons: "Found the first class seat capsule uncomfortable after about three n hours. Certainly would not want it for Transocean flights."
Pros: "Very very helpful I will fly AA every time I can"
Cons: "My flight from SFO to Miami was delayed so I missed my connection to Rio and now I’m NYC on my birthday instead of my final destination. The flight status was changed 7 times. And AA said they would get my bag off but they did not and now I have to wait at JFK and hope it got rerouted here. And if it didn’t to hope it can on another flight before I hopefully actually get on a flight for Rio. Nobody has comped me for losing a day in Rio and for my hotel room. And this has been the worst flight exeperience or my life which unfortunately landed on my birthday. One I’ll remember in a sad and bad way. American Airlines refused to compensate me because I got my tickets via Kayak and I haven’t been able to find a number to complain to a Kayak agent whom I sure would say I had to contact American Airlines and nobody would help or take responsilvitu for this disaster."
Pros: "One cabin crew went the extra mile for me...rescued a partial dental plate which I had inadvertently tossed in the trash."
Pros: "The flights were on time and the staff was very friendly."
Pros: "Great service great entertainment to make long flight bearable"
Cons: "great flight"
Pros: "Seats were surprisingly comfortable"

Pros: "Good friendly service. Flights were on time."
Pros: "Staff were helpful."

Pros: "New plane, early departures, nice crew, terrific entertainment system."
Cons: "I'm getting to Madrid 24 hrs after I was supposed to"
Pros: "I was comfy on Philly to Venice flight, no one was sitting next to me"
Cons: "Staff at Philadelphia was rude when I asked for upgrade options the desk attendant told me " you should have booked 1st class from the beginning" in a rude and belittling demeanor."
Cons: "We thought we were going to be flying on British Airways American Airways."
Pros: "I really like the 737..the seats were so comfortable. I miss the old school planes when things were quality. The seat declined further and the headrest was comfortable and not too tall. And I especially loved the service of our flight attendants. Overall this was a very quality flight."
Pros: "Lots on in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Nothing, I pretty much just slept the whole time."
Cons: "Four and a half hours on board and just a cookie? Really!?"
Pros: "I was surprised by the amount of room in the economy cabin."
Cons: "Check in very slow! The computers used for passenger self check in didn't work well. It took 6 attempts to read my passport, it never did read my green card, wouldn't accept my frequent flyer number. Other passengers were similarly frustrated. The attendant couldn't have been less helpful. I joined a line to check in with a counter clerk. The counter positions were seriously understaffed. The clerks seemed to be working quite slowly and were quite unconcerned about the growing line. I'm glad I checked in early for my flight!"
Cons: "I got to Moscow, SVO. I didn't receive my bag. This sucks."
Pros: "The food was great!"

Pros: "Landing at destination"
Cons: "Plane, food,seat, entertainment and missing flight crew"
Pros: "Nothing I could not take the flight"
Cons: "They did not let us board because the connection time was not enough for our bags - no one took accountability and they finally rescheduled us on a flight the following day after 3 hours on the phone. Terrible"
Pros: "Crew and promptness. Roomie seat."
Cons: "No cellphone charger. No movie screen at the seat."
Cons: "My tickets ultimately were booked through Kayak/webjet. I will never book through webjet again. You can't directly speak with an agent. They never sent me my e-tickets. I couldn't download my tickets prior to arriving at the airport. It was super confusing because I couldn't figure out whether I was flying on British Airways or American Airlines. I didn't know what terminal to go to. I finally checked in with American even after they told me to go to British Airways. Next, American said that my booking was messed up such that they couldn't check my bag through. So at Chicago I had to exit the Secure area, pick up my bag from baggage check, check it back in and go back through security. I still didn't have my ticket for the chicago-barcelona leg of the trip. At American, they told be I had to exit the airport again to go to British Airways for the Chicago- Barcelona leg of the trip. Luckily, i asked another agent and she confirmed my flight was though American. It was the most confusing flight experience, I have ever had."
Pros: "Probably just about the only domestic flight where you still get food in steerage."
Pros: "The accommodations. Loved the high tech tv and choices on the entertainment, as well as the more advanced reading lights. LOVED LOVED LOVED the charging ports available."
Cons: "The headrests/seats weren't very comfortable."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 2 hours and after seated in the AA plane for 2 hours, the flight was canceled because without pilot?! Changed to a UA plane but after seated in the UA plane 1 hour, the plane needed to be maintenanced. Had been changed to another UA plane. After three times into three planes, arrived Chicago at 3:30am without the checked baggage."
Cons: "Late by 40 min"
Pros: "The comfortable sitting and good hospitality by staff. Timely departure and smooth landing of aircraft."
Cons: "It was delayed for about a half an hour. Other than that it was great"
Cons: "I had booked an international flight with British Airways and it ended up being American Airlines. There was no notification of this change and I was not happy. I found AA to be subpar. The plane itself didn't have individual screens and my view was obstructed by other seats. The food was terrible and I got sick later, possibly from the bad airline food. Overall I got to my destination on time, but unhappy as I had chosen an airline and was forced to use another."
