Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew was super nice and the food was good (for plane food)! Really appreciated that they had snacks and chocolate on hand for hungry passengers throughout the flight. A 17 hour plane ride is never the best, but Singapore Air made it as pleasant as possible. Also, we booked on Kayak and was routed through a third party vendor JustFly, which I was a little worried about - but our booking went off without a hitch."
Pros: "Crew, food, time all great."
Cons: "WiFi did not work. Flight data unavailable."

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!"
Cons: "Excellent flight service no"

Cons: "The toilets were very dirty"
Pros: "Amazing service!"
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."
Cons: "Seats in economic class are not too contraint in space, food was good and entertainment system quite nice with large si play screen and large movie selection"
Pros: "The service from the Singapore Airlines is always impeccable. The food is delicious. The business class seat is spacious and wider than all the US airlines. There are plenty storage space in your seat space. The entertainment system has many choices and has a lot new release movies and shows."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the ride on Boeing 777 is not as smooth as the Airbus'. The noise in the cabin is louder. The seat is comfortable but the bed is not. First, the flat bed is not transformed by a button and it needs a physical person to flip it over. The mat is thin and I can feel some hard edges while lying down. The noise from the engine transmits to the bed and it is hard to sleep even with the noise cancellation headphone."
Pros: "The seats seem to have more leg room, food was actually good, and the staff was delightful."
Cons: "It was a 17 hour flight, but they made it bearable."
Pros: "Non stop to HK"
Cons: "Staff wake you up very aggressively when meal time. Other airlines leave stickers. This is a long flight, be respectful. Will avoid for future."
Cons: "too long a flight 17 hours from SFO to Singapore"
Cons: "Foods serving were too slow for economy class. Not enough selections for entertainment."
Pros: "Entertainment even in economy class was excellent -- tons of movies, games, etc. Cabin crew were friendly. Bathroom was very large."
Cons: "In economy, seating was incredibly tight (very little legroom) and at least in my seat, very little reclining. For a 14 hour flight through the night, it made it very difficult to actually get any rest. Food was OK."
Pros: "Like the food"
Cons: "In flight crew manager in greenish dress was rude! Seemed like there weren’t enough restrooms on flight."
Pros: "Crews are truly nice and patient"
Cons: "Crews are very nice, food are not really good"

Cons: "Really nothing. I loved flying with them."
Pros: "Crew, plane, punctuality"
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Kids' meal didn't have fruits. No cellphone charger."
Pros: "Overall treatment of boarding & crew staff was courteous, friendly & helpful. Movies selections were great but I was too tired to watch."
Cons: "Food can be improved. Couldn't eat pork or shrimps, so wished they served either vegetarian or chicken noodles instead of pork or stuff with shrimps. Fish, chicken, beef, or vegetarian options are better options."
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"
Pros: "Entertainment was awesome. Boarding was fast."
Cons: "Not enough food served (only two meals on a sixteen hour flight) and tasted okay. Crew was not all friendly."
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: "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: "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"

Pros: "The flight was smooth and the service vert good."
Cons: "The food had room for improvement."
Pros: "I was unable to board the flight so there is nothing to talk about."
Cons: "Provide options for accommodation, refund or alternate flights after announcing a 24-hour delay. I had to repurchase my flight from HKG to SFO after finding out that a return ticket is treated as abandoned if one does not fly one way. Not the level of service expected from an international airline."
Cons: "Only the toilets very small"
Cons: "From the check in, to the food and cabin experience is worsened by far. Check in - no check in line for premium passengers.( really bad experience) Cabin crews could not separate passengers from other cabin consisting using lavatory there fore passengers constantly walk back and forward. (It’s really unpleasant) It’s. Not worth the money to paid for the experience and services."

Cons: "Older entertainment system but not a big issue on a short flight."
Pros: "The service and flight were great"
Cons: "The food was bland and it had no flavor. I got food poisoning from what they called a low lactose meal. I am a Chef myself and I feel like part of the overall experience is being fed but I didn’t have a great experience with that. I dread the flight home."
Pros: "The crew and entire ground staff very courteous. Good entertainment choices. Crew tried their best to make a good experience."
Cons: "Decent 777 planes, but felt dated and very cramped. Food was disgusting and limited options."
Cons: "I’m still not there. They had me go to the airport 5 hours early to get a different flight cuz theirs was delayed then after not being able to make those flights carrying my 5 bags to 3 different terminals they said just go on their delayed flight and cuz they had over 80 people going on to Manila that they would hold the last flight there but when we landed we were informed going to a hotel and no compensation for it.

Pros: "The crew and pilots are always polite and professional."

Pros: "I normally fly Delta (Platinum member), but the price this time I thought was ridiculous. I bought the flight on Cathay for 45 percent less and actually I found the service and food quality was better. Both seats were about the same in comfort......So I would do it again"
Cons: "A Economy flight is an economy flight....what else can I say"
Cons: "I dont like the servic guys"

Pros: "I had difficulty finding my booking reference on cathay website until it was very late. I am marco polo member but that was picked up late so my meal preferences were not picked up. Also we had pork sausage for breakfast to me one of the items tasted sumilar to beef and not pork. I would prefer that all meat sources be listed so i can make an informed choice"

The online website also did not allow us to rebook. When we got to Brisbane, the only flight remaining for us was a flight 2hours later with connection. Also, the phone jack was so poor that half of the time you couldn’t hear the movie."
Pros: "Pillow and blanket made the trip much for comfortable"
Pros: "Crew was excellent! Very friendly and attentive - entertainment selection was great and the plane stayed nice and cool which is really helpful for a 15hr flight - no one needs 300 sweaty people for 15 its."
Cons: "That we were required to check our overhead bag because it weighed more than 15lbs. Meanwhile as we boarded nearly every passenger had an overhead bag that most certainly weighed more than 15lbs. Not sure what was going on there...also the seats are a little tight when reclined. Once the seat in front of me reclined back I had my knees in the back of the chair the entire flight and I am not a particularly tall person- made for a pretty uncomfortable 15hrs."

Pros: "Qantas was half the price of what I had paid for last year on United. Overall the price was great for I had paid for. The staffs were friendly. They let the passengers move around because there were plenty of seats."
Cons: "I didn't like how they didn't give us notification of how far out we were to landing. I end up going to the restroom a few outs. The flight attendant kept knocking on the door. Obviously, I cannot stop what I am doing to go out."
Pros: "Should have put me on one of the Qantas flights that left sooner, no explanation, no compensation."
Pros: "The staff takes very good care of you"
Cons: "The seats are getting closer to each other and you knees touch the next seat. Also the seats are only reclining a few inches.For an international trip it's hard on your back and to be comfortable. Meals are only ok."
Pros: "Quick layover"
Cons: "Food used to be so much better."
Cons: "Was not the original scheduled flight."
Pros: "Movie selection and crew"
Cons: "The delay in lax My seat was cramped 40 C, is at a different angle and no leg room"

Pros: "New'ish plane interior"
Cons: "4 hours delayed (with no advance warning). No continental breakfast option (only hot)."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 3.5 hours so we were stuck at LAX for a long long time, way passed the closing time of all the shops and restaurants at the international terminal :(. Otherwise a great flight w decent food and great service"
Pros: "Flying business class on quantas is awesome"
Pros: "Lots of different entertainment choices."
Cons: "The headphones didn't work very well and the sound kept going off"
Pros: "The comfort , the food the entertainment"
Pros: "Great crew on the flight. As usual the QANTAS crew and plane were excellent."
Pros: "Boarding was quite fast and efficient"
Cons: "My multimedia screen, wasn t working, sticl on "android" message during boot, multiple reboot didn t change anything. It seems that my pre reserved online seat wasn t take in account, so why asking me in advance ?"
Pros: "Attendants were congenial, though not much visible between meals..."
Cons: "My window seat was further from window than normal so could not lean against it to sleep. My overhead light was not positioned properly, so did not help much. It was centered between me and person beside, so while she slept and I wanted to use, I couldn't. Also had to push against connection plugging earphones in to make work. It was a constant effort and made hand sore. And even at best the sound was poor."
Pros: "Reasonably comfortable economy seating, great crew"
Cons: "Food was ordinary."
Pros: "Their assistance with w/c , food & staff being so helpful! Thanks Qantas!"
Pros: "drinks offered"
Cons: "I could not sit together with my 2 sons. There were empty seats on the plane. No free food."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and quite friendly about it as well. They were called to the row near me with five kids many times and always appeared with a smile."
Cons: "The headphone jack didn't work, its a long trip to not have consistent sound from the entertainment system. There were open seats in my row so I switched to another. Also one of my two checked bags didn't make it and I didn't get it until the next day"
Pros: "Lady who checked us in in LA was great."
Cons: "On-board crew may have been the worst ever and I've done that flight for YEARS. They only get grumpier, bossier, ruder and less helpful each time. Oh for another airline that flies direct LAX > MEL!!!"
Pros: "There were probably 4 current, full-length movies I could have watched. Lots of selection, content. Lovely engaging flight attendants."
Pros: "Boarding was quick on-time, and organized and we landed early in Sydney. We were lucky to have an extra economy seat for our 14 hour flight. Needless to say, we were comfortable throughout the entire time. The flight attendants were extremely friendly and happy. I loved how they closed the entire cabin down (windows closed and lights off) so that we could all sleep. All in all it was a very pleasant flight. We'll definitely fly Qantas again."
Cons: "The food was very average, but we don't count on good food in economy, so we weren't disappointed. My entertainment mechanism wasn't working correctly and I was unable to access TV or movies for most of the flight but it looked like everyone else was enjoying their entertainment."
Cons: "I showed up 1 hour and 20 minutes before my flight. An American agent told me I had to go to the kiosk. The kiosk told me I had to go to the counter. An American agent said I had plenty of time to check a bag, beingnup until 45 minutes before and would not help me. When I got to the counter, it was 1 hour before and they said I was too late to check my bag and since I had a bag, they would not give me a boarding pass. They were awful to me and so unhelpful. I will never use this airline or a sister airline again."
Pros: "The boarding was fine. The entertainment options were very good."
Cons: "The check-in desk didn't open until 2.5 hours before the flight. We had a long layover and waited forever to check in. No one was at the desk. The LA airport has no good food options before security and no good areas to wait. Awful experience. The food was also not good at all. Very tasteless."
Pros: "entertainment system was excellent, very up to date. broad selection of movies and TV shows, good selection of music as well."
Cons: "seats were abysmal for a 15hr flight. These are similar to the intolerable seats and spacing for domestic (US) flights on legacy carriers (although, American is now radically changing seat dimensions and comfort on the 737-800). For a 6hr flight, it is not tolerable. For a 15hr non-stop flight, it is punishing. The Quantas A380-200 is no longer a new plane. The seat hardware is tired, lumpy, stiff, back-breaking. This could be improved by more space per seat, but it is not. I am 6'3" (189cm) and not at all fat (75kg), but the amount of seating space was tight. Again, this is an inconvenience for a short flight, and absolutely punishing on a long, 15hr, flight. It was not a cheap flight, and surely some updated seats can be put in, with fewer rows. By contrast, I flew back to US on Air New Zealand, and was entirely comfortable on a 12hr leg on very modern and spacious seats in the lowest economy class seat, on a 777 plane for a much cheaper fare."
Cons: "After waiting more than 5 hours with boarding and disembarking twice before the plane left, the plane was old without any entertainment. There was no food and the drink options were limited. For a 5 hour flight, it was miserable!"
Pros: "It was the first time I have flown internationally and not gone through immigration when leaving the US. So was fast. The transfer on the bus was good."
Cons: "Qantas needs some better salty snacks to nibble on, those soy crackers are like cat food. The transfer on the bus was not well marked or communicated to passengers. we were lucky to stumble onto it"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "The fact that I was able to get on the flight on standby."
Cons: "I was informed that I had a seat on the plane and when I got ready to board the plane I was informed that there was a problem with my ticket. I was call back out of the line and the booking agent was having a conversation with someone and said that I was in the standby list two times and did they want to allow me on the plane. Nevertheless, they made the decision to allow me to board the plane."
Pros: "Smooth and very organized."
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "The flight was early into Brisbane! The attendants were friendly and helpful and the food was good."
Pros: "I checked in late in Charlotte and they reassign my seats. I asked if there were any seat that would give me more leg room and was told the plane was full. They I was asked if I wanted to move to a window seat, which would have given me less leg room. Then I was asked to show my passport after I was in my seat. I was not provided with any explanation."
Cons: "Nothing. I would strongly recommend the crew gets training coaching f I would strongly recommend the crew get some training on cultural diverse."
Pros: "The food and comfort was as good as can be for a 16 hour flight."
Cons: "At first I had booked seats close together for the three members of my family. They then changed 2 out of 3 seats and put us all over the plane, stuck between others. The lady behind the desk refused to do anything about it to get us together saying that seats weren't guaranteed unless we paid an extra $25 at the time. QANTAS has done this to me several times, I book seats and then they change them. Luckily I overheard another ticket agent help a family that had the same thing done to them. She was able to move my families seats and get us together even though the first lady insisted the flight was full and there was no chance of that happening."
Pros: "A380 was super comfortable and quiet, crew were professional. Entertainment was good."
Cons: "It was very awkward and difficult to leave your seat when the person in front had their seat reclined. Food was mediocre."
Pros: "the crew were very attentive to your every need."
