Departure was on time and arrived early. Second meal in business class could have been later; did not need to be woken up just yet and would have preferred more of a breakfast closer to arrival.
Excellent service. Clean aircraft. Took off and landed on time. Did not feel it was an 18 hour flight. Will definitely fly Singapore Airlines again.
Business class. Staff service was PHENOMENAL. Seats/beds were spacious and comfortable (I had the seat in the middle section which can become a queensize bed with the next seat. I have had more satisfying food in economy, however traveling with an infant, the spacious seat/bed allowed him to sleep for a few hours. The staff were very good to accomdating him too.
Airplane flight is good,nice and clean
Delayed flights!!!!! Had to rent a car from JFK and drive home to Syracuse $225! Have to be to work at 5am Monday NOT HAPPY
My seat wasn’t comfortable enough even though I paid for it. Seafood menu wasn’t good. I was left hungry throughout my flight because I cannot eat a lot of stuff :( overall it was a pleasant flight. Passengers are pretty well behaved and less noisy compared to Cathay Pacific. There are no toilet seat papers.
Delays were given at intervals. So we were informed
Pros: "Amazing crew, very nice and helpful."
Pros: "The staff was amazing"
Pros: "The help desk employees who helped me rebook my flight."
Cons: "After rushing to catch my connecting Singapore flight, their desks were closed and there wasn’t an employee in site. Given that airlines can see connecting fights it would have been great to have someone stay back to either give me a boarding pass or help me rebook! UNSATISFACTORY!"
Pros: "Friendly service and not a super crowded plane."
Cons: "In-seat entertainment was not working for me, and boarding process could be drastically improved."
Cons: "The person next to me had a distinct body odor."
Pros: "Always love the SIA business product on long haul."
Cons: "This trip had a lot of minor service and cleanliness misses. But they are quibbles in the scheme of the overall great product."
Cons: "Great Airline. Great staff and service. Good food and drink."
Pros: "Everything, perfect flight"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. The seat were uncomfortable"
Cons: "Food could have been better."
Pros: "The crews on board were amazing!"
Cons: "The service from the ground staffs are not as good a the crews onboard."
Cons: "without any possibility to call back. or to call again while being late, when arrived with plenty of time before departure. nobody was on the gate. when tryed to do all myself whithin minutes tsa didnt bother to speedup process and it took forever. i missed my flight literally in seconds."
Pros: "Boarding. Timely departure"
Cons: "Entertainment selection."
Pros: "Service was excellent, always with a smile."
Pros: "excellent - comfy plane, great service, excellent stuff."
Pros: "The food was good, good choices and at good intervals. Lavatories were well maintained. Entertainment was excellent."
Cons: "My first leg, the crew appeared rushed. Seating was tight. Would definitely upgrade next time."
Pros: "Everything else"
Cons: "Food was less than marginal"
Pros: "Space in economy seat was good. Huge selection of movies. Food was tasty. On flights to Frankfurt, Singapore Airlines may want to keep more sparkling water in stock, as Europeans prefer this to still water."
Cons: "There was a smell in the plane when I first arrived like vomit. It may have been the cleaning supplies."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and professional and the amenities were top notch."
Cons: "There wasn't enough leg room. My knees touched the chair in front of me the whole time."
Pros: "What can I say about a flight of this length? Its always an epic journey to go from the US to Asia. However I will say that with Singapore Airlines things are a lot easier. Excellent crew who were always willing to help with my fondness for a beer. Food was as expected and up to the standard of Singapore Airlines. All round it was a long trip made a lot easier......5 stars."
Pros: "The flight attendants were amazing."
Pros: "Amazing, amazing service! Great food (including Hagen Daaz ice cream) and good choice of beverages. Lots of different entertainment choices. VERY clean and well maintained aircraft. Staff is always friendly and happy...they really seem to absolutely love their job! Free toiletries in the bathrooms are an extra plus. Whenever there was a change in schedule / plans the captain informed the passengers immediately about what was going on and what would happen next."
Cons: "The only thing that did and probably always will be AWFUL is going thru security at JFK. The T S A officials there are unfriendly, sometimes rude, never smiling and often yelling at you or even little kids or elderly people. We are travelling a lot and no other security staff at any given airport is so unfriendly and harsh. Worst thing about going on a journey."
Cons: "Headphones didn’t work entirely for listening to movies. Had to manually hold it in."
Pros: "There was nothing to complain about..a very friendly staff, departure on time !"
Cons: "No newspapers and magazines on board !"
Pros: "The A380 is an amazing plane. The flight was smooth and the engine sounds were fairly low."
Cons: "Waiting on line to check in was more than a half hour although there were probably only 10 people ahead of me. Got a hard time on the weight of my carry-on being more than 7kg although I had to point out that my ticket allowed me two bags that were 23kg each - I had nothing to check. Eventually, when I pointed out that I could wear enough of the clothes from the carry on, they agreed to let me take it on. On board, the service was cold, bland and infrequent. The entertainment system lost sound perhaps 20 minutes into the flight."
Pros: "The crew of ladies and men where so very gracious and courtly, both to the passengers and each other. My wife and I both took note that the flight attendants were "First Class" with emphasis on class. Exceptionally well groomed, but also conveyed genuine concern and helpfulness and at the same time, real workers, energetic and perky. We are bragging to all our friends about the uplifting cultural demeanor of Singapore Airlines. They should all get a pay raise. I will always remember their wonderful service when thinking about our trip to Frankfurt, Germany. Robert"
Pros: "Service from Singapore airlines"
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."
Cons: "What I did not like: Boarding was slower than expected. Large plane = longer boarding time."
Pros: "Crew was great. Food not bad for airline food . It was clean."
Pros: "The service, seats, food, drinks and bed!"
Cons: "I reserved a window seat on this site but was given a middle row instead when I checked in."
Pros: "they even addressed me by name"
Pros: "Everything was outstanding. The cleanliness of the airplane, the food, the friendliness of the crew, I just can't say enough good things about my experience flying on Singapore Airlines."
Pros: "The choices for entertainment were excellent! I was never bored for a second on my 20++ hours of flight. I love how they gave us in-ear earphones instead of the normal airline headphones that keep on sliding off."
Cons: "It was quite difficult for me to get comfortable. Maybe it's due to my shortness, I can't really rest my head that well"
Pros: "My luggage was lost, due to an error of another airline. but singapore air took care of it and made sure i got the luggage in Germany - even though it involved bringing it to me to remote location 2.5 hour drive from frankfurt. free of charge. Thanks Singapore airlines!"
Pros: "From the beginning until the end the service, the vibe, the flight itself was amazing. I don't know any other airline I flew with so far that hosted me and all other flyers better. At any time I was supported by the staff and even if it was busy they constantly had a kindness and smile in their face. I don't fly with any other airline on long distance flights! It was clean and neat on top at any time. I love flying with Singapore airlines. I feel safe and in good hands all around. This is how service should be at any airline! It is never less good but a constant since years! Thank you"
Cons: "There is nothing I did not like."
Pros: "Fast boarding and crew"
Cons: "Food was terrible even for plane food was unacceptable the headphones jacks are all half way working u have to wiggle the end to make it work the chairs are very stiff and uncomfortable next time looking for another airline"
Pros: "The checkin was straight forward. The staff were very pleasant as always. The entertainment system worked."
Cons: "It was an 8 our overnight flight to another time zone where we had a full day ahead of us so we needed all the sleep we could get but instead we were fed around midnight. Lights went out for about two hours, it seemed, before we were told to put our chairs upright for the person behind us so they could serve another meal. We arrived about 10am completely shattered."
Pros: "On my flight back I got to sit in premier economy and that was amazing !! I want to fly like that all the time! The leg room and space was perfect. The comfort of the chairs recline and foot rest that raised up was great. The big tray table that tucked away was nice. And side pockets for your stuff was great. The comfort of the bigger seats was just excellent and they looked newer. On my flight back from Frankfurt to NYC that was the best flight I ever have taken."
Cons: "The only thing was the food wasn't the best. But I did have Ice cream and that was good. The rice was good and beverages was good. The rest wasn't the best."
Pros: "Had to get new boarding passes at JFK eventhough issued passes at Rochester without gate numbers but was then able to check that my bags were transferred to SIA."
Cons: "I could not select a seat on JetBlue. Indian vegetarian food was mainly rice and potaoes and bread, not much protein like paneer or egg for the non-vegans like me."
Pros: "Everything was amazing. Best flight I've ever been on!"
Pros: "Outstanding crew! Super attentive in my section.. I had seat 43E."
Cons: "Seat was a little tight for me, but not bad... I'm 6"2 and 185 lbs"
Pros: "I used my miles to upgrade to Laurel so the experience was great! EVA is always a good airline so not really many complains"
Cons: "What could be better would be even more improvements to the cabin. The layout and decor feels a bit dated and the seat orientation and layout can also use some modernizing."
Cons: "I didn't like that all of the shades for the windows were down for the whole flight. It's too many hours in the dark. We took off at noon and spent the entire flight in the dark. Too many hours in the dark. Then land when night time. More darkness. With flight and wait till sun rise it's like 26 hours of darkness."
Cons: "The entertainment options were not reflected online"
Cons: "Seats in economy are very tight and I'm thin. The movies were not as current as advertised. The crew was not very friendly."
Cons: "Better movie selection"
Pros: "Quality of food was good"
Pros: "Bigger space for legs room"
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "Space between seats - boarding time - food quality"
Cons: "The flight departed over one hour late from SFO and caused a mis-connection at Taipei,"
Pros: "On time flight times"
Cons: "Have better movie selection."
Cons: "Very capable on-the-ground staff and service personnel on the airplane. Their desire to take good care of passengers is obvious."
Pros: "Their service exceeds every other airline I have been on. Amazing flight attendants with quality food and comfortable seats."
Cons: "A little pricier than other airlines but definitely better!"
Pros: "Flight is online"
Cons: "Flight Attendants performed acceptable. They pushed the table cart and hit me twice without apologizing."

Pros: "Boarding was orderly, restroom is clean & tidy, good legroom beteeen seats, landing was smooth"
Cons: "Orderly boarding"
Pros: "Good Service and Very Polite"
Cons: "Booked/ paid/ and got refused to fly by Evaair as they and Justfly didn’t process the ticket properly even after received money for a month."
Pros: "They setup rows in the waiting area with a Zone number for each row. That way you can get a set in the row that is for your boarding zeom"
Pros: "Service was great and plates of food were delicious."
Cons: "Delayed and I wasn’t able to make it to my connecting flight to cenu"
Cons: "Flight was too long."
Pros: "Service and boarding were very nice and smooth. Food and entertainment were excellent."
Pros: "Overall I was flying from SFO to Bali. So my first flight was about 14 hours. This whole trip all together was about 24 hours, and considering the length it was great. I was expecting to get restless and annoyed while on the plane, but it was easy to love around. The seats were comfortable, and the food was good. The airline staff was very nice and accomadating. So, because of there actions, I will most likely fly with them again."
Cons: "It was just long but it’s understandable because of the distance"
Cons: "Salad dressing tasted weird."
Pros: "Clean and efficient. Catered to our needs. Definitely would travel them again."
Pros: "Onboard foods and entertainment are good."
Cons: "Boarding area in SFO Gate 102 is cramped. Boarding group signs not clearly marked."
Pros: "We lucked out on a sparsely filled flight so nearly everyone had a row to themselves, even in Economy class. Food was tasty, and the crew provided many opportunities for drinks. Crew was friendly and even volunteered some drawing packs for our 19-month old!"
Cons: "Snacks available limited to dry crackers and cookies primarily. Entertainment options - easy to use though limited selection (for US-based films at least)."
Pros: "Liked the way they do their boarding Comfortable flight"
Cons: "We nearly dehydrated during the trip. We're EXTREMELY skimpy on drinks. Had to ask 3x before I'd get something"
Pros: "Food was great and the crews were helpful. They do offer snacks/drinks in between meals. For those who do not know, they do offer wine as a drink in the Economy class (usually red wine)."
Cons: "Speakers are not good during announcement. I can barely hear it. if they can improve that, that will be great."
Pros: "Friendliness and courtesy of crew, modern plane and good food. Well definitively fly EVA more!"
Cons: "In my Emergency seat position, whenever someone opened the washroom door, the washroom light would wake me as the light would shine in my eyes. Maybe offering eye cover for extended seat position would help."
Pros: "the food on eva was better than delta and united--definitely edible unlike the others. the stewardesses are a little bit stingy with the wine. they give such tiny tiny portions-like 2 ounces at a time--they said i might get drunk. no one can get drunk with what they give. the stewardesses are polite enough. the entertainment was pretty good--good choice of movies. like all other airlines, the seats are too squished together. more room would have been appreciated."
Cons: "i answered this already"
Pros: "Flight comfortable but would have liked more water throughout flight"
Cons: "Service speed"
Pros: "Seat, service and food were excellent"
Cons: "No negatives on this flight"
Pros: "Seats were nice and plane was clean"
Cons: "The ticketing agent assured me that he would handle my bag. When I arrived in Taiwan, I did not receive my bag. I believe my lack of Chinese and their weak English contributed to this problem."
Pros: "cheap airfare that includes check-in baggage, clean restrooms"
Cons: "Some brusque attendants at the counter and on the plane, cabin smells like pee (but only while boarding), standard legroom (72 cm), average food (Turkish Airlines is waaaay better)"
Cons: "Take height and weight when booking flight."
Pros: "The seats were large and comfortable, and the food options were stellar."
Cons: "Because I was checked in so late (they were reviewing my documents for over an hour) I think they forgot to place a tag on my suitcase. This is turn resulted in my suitcase being left in Taiwan where I had a 4 hour layover. I am now currently waiting for my bag to be delivered to my place of work (hopefully in one piece)."
Pros: "Like most were the friendly and professional crew, nice big screen individual entertainment system with many movies, clean bathrooms, and my seafood meal was awesome!"
Cons: "Didn't like that we departed almost an hour late for no apparent reason - something about waiting for luggage to be loaded. The side dishes on the entree could be better."
Pros: "I loved all the ammenities like slippers, blankets, and also the bathroom ones like toothbrush and sanitary pads. This proved your airline has great attetion to detail. Also the food selection was delicious."
Cons: "The tomato juice was super watery and tasteless. I was expecting a thick and savory tomato juice like the V8 or Calamaro brands, which most airlines cary. Also the head sets provided weren't the best they didn't fit well and were cheap quality."
Cons: "The passenger who sat next to me had disgusting, stinky breath for the entire flight. Had nothing to do with the airline. Lol."
Pros: "Personal in-seat entertainment; chinese breakfast (jook) was good. Very nice pillow and blanket in economy"
Cons: "Special meal (vegetarian Hindi) was terrible. Seats didn't recline much in economy class. Bathroom not cleaned very often."
Cons: "Departure delay 45 min with no reason told"
Pros: "Both ground and air services"
My flight was canceled from a Monday to a Tuesday only to find out that there’s no scheduled flight from NY to Manila on Mondays! They shouldn’t be accepting reservations then! The check in was good but boarding was horrible. The departure area was changed without an announcement over the intercomThe boarding was changed from 0050 to 0200Hr and the people on the boarding area looked clueless and impersonal. The flight crew was very helpful and kind which made the trip less stressful.
Better fly on time. Thats all
I like the crew, very friendly. The food was good but the serving was really small. They could’ve added bottled water for each main meal instead of pouring in a small cup.
Pros: "the seat are comfortable. Flight stewards are responding to anything I need but on the downside, lavatories are clogged most of the time ( maybe because too many are using it.) Another issue is the travelers card, the letters are printed too small that seniors like me can't read it inspite of the fact that I'm wearing my eyeglasses."
Cons: "First time traveling via Philippines airlines, was hoping for a good direct flight, was just very disappointed. Not much variety in food, no really onboard vegetarian or seafood options. Comfort wise economy seat are bit tighter compared to other international airlines. Crew was very helpful, did their best to accommodate to what they had to work with, their crew truly saves their short-givings."
Pros: "Passengers and crew were all nice and accommodating. Food was great!"
Cons: "Temperature was very cold 21C but perhaps that is to inhibit spread of germs."
Cons: "Please balance your serving with what you pair with the rice, there’s a lot of rice little vayand"
Cons: "Many changes and mistakes"
Pros: "having the access to a direct flight to the Philippines."
Cons: "enforcing rules and regulations too passengers. as a person of purchasing additional leg room, this should be enforced to pay for additional leg room vs just giving that additional space for free. This is the second time I experienced and this has not changed since last year."
Cons: "Hoping to have a flight on time and not delayed."
Cons: "4 hours late departure from jfk."
Pros: "Entertainment options were excellent. Lots of choice. Staff were friendly."
Cons: "Flight attendants need to come around more often to offer water or other beverages because dehydration is such an issue on a 16+ hour flight. In addition, we boarded on time at 1:00 for a 1:45am flight but did not leave the gate until 4:00am. This jeopardized my connection in Manila."
Pros: "crew was great/ airline was clean"
Cons: "the flight from manila to jfk. the security check was 3x. i justthought it was crazy"
Cons: "I do hope the cabin crews would smile more to let the passengers know they are happy to serve."
Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "It’s such a shame that Philippine Airlines (PAL) charged extra for aisle and window seats! There was so much vacant seats during the flight. This was a deliberate way of PAL to extract more money from their passengers. In the future, my family and I will not choose PAL anymore. We felt cheated."
Pros: "The crew was really good and professional."
Cons: "Pls add quantity to the food. There was not enough meat to the amount of rice or pasta served. I got hungry between meals. Water was also not offered often enough between meals."
Pros: "Great seats (Premium Economy) and very friendly crew."
Cons: "A descent selection of movies, both old and new. But towards the end, I they kept stopping and I had to restart (from where I left off) a few times."
Pros: "great flight great service"
Cons: "Food was alright but could have been better."
Pros: "Nice flight attendant. Alcohol included."
Cons: "Snack choices. More tea and coffee"
Pros: "Aside from the scare of not making my flight because it was overbooked. I think the boarding process could have been a little more efficient. The staff are amazing as always which is why PAL is my preferred airline when traveling to and within Philippines."
Cons: "Since I have pretty broad shoulders, it’s difficult to sleep in the isles. Not to mention the multiple babies crying. Outside of that, everything was wonderful."
Cons: "Missed the connection and had to pay to rebook"
Pros: "Nearly empty flight and was able to move to different seat for added comfort"
Cons: "Selection of inflight entertainment was very limited. Boarding was very unorganized at the gate"
Pros: "Great service and so much leg room"
Cons: "The people at the boarding counter weren’t helpful and not willing to help with my questions."
Cons: "Delay boarding at jfk"
Pros: "food when it finally arrived"
Cons: "waiting in plane 4 hours with no updates on status"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2+ hours, not getting in Vancouver until after 5am. Everyone on the flight, passengers and staff were extremely rude. Never taking this airline again!! Also, there was no food left by the time the served me near the end of the plane."
Pros: "I like the direct flight to Vancouver"
Cons: "I checked in early and was given a middle seat. I have back problems and walk with a cane and asked at the check in desk if I could have a window or aisle. I was told no because the flight was completely booked. I arrived three hours early and checked in online so I could get a better seat and they still said no. No one was able to help me. The flight was delayed over an hour and there was no apology. I always fly Philippine Airlines because IV always been really pleased with the service. This past flight makes me question that decision going forward."
Pros: "Everything was excellent. Extremely good service compared to North American carriers. Only thing that went wrong was we left early and landed an hour early and our gate wasn't ready yet :)"
Pros: "organized departure / arrival aircraft cleanliness pleasant staff great food & entertainment / free alcohol great leg room"
Pros: "They have the friendliest flight crew I've ever seen."
Cons: "There was too much leg room. I'm not used to that."
Pros: "crew is very caring and attentive, food was delicious,"
Cons: "the business class seats should be upgraded into more comfortable flat beds, biz class bathrooms too cramped!"
Pros: "The crew was polite and boarding was okay"
Cons: "Being in a cramped space for fourteen hours in opinion is torture, they need to give passengers who travel 12 hours more leg room I am 6'2" and being cramp is not good."
Cons: "I need more legroom."
Pros: "What? Free check-in for one bag? Free full meal?? Thank you!!!"
Pros: "Although the flight was delayed the boarding process was very smooth. Flight attendants were very friendly and efficient."
Cons: "Long check in lines even though we checked in online. Flight delay."
Pros: "Wheelchair assistance was very good"
Cons: "Entertainment equipment on board is outdated"
Pros: "The crew was really nice."
Cons: "It's a 6.5 hour international flight so I was expecting a meal to be served, not those underwelming snack box/wrap options to be available for purchase. Also, no blanquet and pillow."
Cons: "Was a good experience"
Cons: "First of all, both on my departure and return flight, despite having boarded 30 minutes ahead of schedule, we remained on the floor for an additional hour (both for taking and after landing). Next, the flight attendants did a poor job of ensuring that everyone did not get up when we landed and the seatbelt sign was on, and this led to herds of people running through the aisles and rushing to get off past those that were patiently waiting. The leg room is very limited, unless it is an empty flight. The red wine was perhaps the worst I have ever had. AND the wifi that was available for purchase was 40 USD for only 150 mb of data which is absolutely ridiculous."
Cons: "The logistics at Manila airport are horrible. I spent more time working around the terminal changes and flight delays than I actually did in the air. I will avoid Manila and PAL in the future"
Pros: "Good flight with excellent Serb=vice form the crew"
Cons: "Inflight entertainment US for one whole sections of the aircraft. The aircraft looked tired the table fittingwas broken ,"
Pros: "We got 2 food vouchers one at night, the other early in the morning. However the food establishment was so pricy a chocolate bar was $7 USD."
Cons: "13 hour delay, would not let us go home, would not cancel the flight, instead pushed the boarding time back one hour every hour starting at 4am. Flight was supposed to leave JFK by 11:55pm, we left at 1pm the following day. It wasn't solely due to the weather (we expected a slight delay), but in the morning, plenty of other flights were running regularly, while there were no updates. No one that cared, all the staff just told us it wasn't their fault. (Which is true to an extent), but all so mentioned that they were tired too, and they're exhausted too, which made many people angrier. They deflected a lot of statements."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by a really long time. They should have sent people to hotels or cancelled flight. Delay too long (especially for elderly and children)"
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful cabin staff. Still the most covenient flight to and from the Philippines."
Cons: "The line at JFK. There we not enough seats for passengers. Sink was clogged in one restroom and remained so even after the "technical" layover at YVR."
Cons: "There was confusion and poor organization at the check in counter. The check in started late and there was a 500 ft line up to check in at Philippine Airlines. We waited 2 hours in the plane for 4 people who were late for the flight, then the cargo handlers didn't show up. We left at 5am instead of 3am. The flight attendants didn't seem to know why we weren't leaving. Two short announcements were made in 2 hours that didn't explain properly why we sat there so long. The food was wretched. The flight attendants were pleasant but the captain and the purser's announcements were hard to understand with poor English."
