Cons: "Not much"
Cons: "My seat was horrible. I'm sure it was like that for everyone in economy. The seat can't recline putting me in an awkward position for the entire flight. It was a red-eye so I didn't sleep much. Maybe it was the airplane since I flew with ANA last year but with the 787. The difference is almost night and day."
Pros: "Premium economy is the way to go! Comfy seats with plenty of room; preflight lounge access."

I think my body likes older seat which actually reclining toward behind other guests. or I guess maybe I just get older. I asked 2 beer cans but completely ignored. maybe I was too shy."
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly, quick to respond to questions, and very helpful. I was able to switch seats even though the flight was full. The food was fine but the menu for the return flight looked better still."
Cons: "The flight was 100% full. I took a redeye flight hoping to sleep a bit on the plane but I ended up not sleeping much. I am happy to take ANA on my return flight, which is not redeye.

Pros: "The flight attendants are super nice every time we fly with ANA, and the have great food."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very polite and kind."
Cons: "The food was not to my taste. I did enjoy the ice cream though! Perhaps it was very Japanese (which I am not tremendously familiar with), but even the pasta with sauce which I had the impression was going to be more Italian style, seemed odd. I felt like it was supposed to be gourmet, but just came off strange. I was wishing for something more straightforward."
Pros: "This was my first time flying with ANA airlines and it was great. First the staff where we checked in we're amazingly helpful! They spoke great English and ensured me and my husband sat together during our 15 hr flight to Vietnam.! They had so many options on new movies and music that helped pass the time. The food was very tasty as well as there snacks and drinks! The entire staff were helpful and appeared to enjoy their jobs. I will always fly with ANA when returning to ASIA."
Cons: "The seats seem small and are ok in comfort."
Cons: "Queued up with other Star Gold etc. customers (they have 2 queues, one for Diamond and one for other statuses). There's a sign on a pole. People queue up, then they swivel the pole round so I'm in the wrong queue now. Try to move, lose place in queue, they swivel it back the way it was... Good airline but boarding especially for domestic is disorganised with poor signage etc."
Pros: "Ana is the best"
Pros: "Clean cabin. Courteous and friendly attendants. Inflight amenities were excellent."
Pros: "Staff are very attentive and helpful; the entertainment system is top class"
Cons: "On boarding, the markers for "business" and "diamond" class are only distinguished by a (low) signpost at the head of the queue. If you're further back or not so tall s difficult to see which queue is correct... quite a few people (not me fortunately!) got turned away because they don't know ANA's boarding system. Also a problem with boarding at HND where the overhead monitors show BIz but not First/Diamond. As some other reviews pointed out, BBC news just didn't work. CNN worked intermittently."
Pros: "everything was so smooth!!"
Cons: "entertainment : wish there were more japanese comedies!!"
Cons: "Not enough English movies/tv shows"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable to sleep in."

Cons: "The on line check-in failed and no explanations."
Pros: "Everything :)"
Pros: "I liked that they feed us good food, and we were feed several times. We were also offered several drinks, and all the flight attendants were extremely nice. We would fly Ana airways all the time if given the chance. Seats were very comfortable and spacious."
Cons: "I liked everything, everything was excellent"
Pros: "Service in a air."

Pros: "crew handled the tough crowd well, but were not extremely hospitable"
Cons: "food was disgusting"
Pros: "Singapore airlines never disappoints"
Cons: "Everything. Singapore Airlines had a great reputation. Imagine my disappointment. It was a horrible flight. The crew was nice enough, but inattentive. The food, if such a term may be applied here, was inedible. Just vile. In flight entertainment was a complete joke. Boarding was awful, but it always is. Seats were extremely uncomfortable. This racket is the ultimate way to rip somebody off of $1000. Horrible."
Pros: "The inflight entertainment was great, lots of movie selections"
Cons: "The leg room was horrible. Honestly the worst space I've ever had in a flight. I was shocked considering Singapore air is considered one of the best airlines"

Pros: "Short flight"
Pros: "Loved the food/Movies/seats."

Pros: "Very good service! Lots of flight attendants and they were kind the flight was long, but mostly smooth. The entertainment was good and there was a lot of it."
Cons: "The flight map was a mess. It either said we had 115 hours of flying time or 3.5 hours. Also, it showed the plane pointing in the opposite direction that we were flying in. A minor issue, but weird."
Pros: "I like the personal TV, my foot rest and water holder frequent water serve,"
Cons: "For me coffee is too strong, and I like the food on the way to Tokyo better than on the way back to LA"
Pros: "Great service. Really friendly and polite. Lots of current movies and TV shows to watch and provided earbuds with adaptors. Made the experience a lot more pleasant."
Cons: "The seats can be laid bag pretty far and the people in front of me decided to recline for a majority of the 10 hour flight. I wish the chairs either didn't do this or the flight attendants would have said something. I didn't feel like I had the authority to do anything about it. Also it was so warm! I have no idea if there was a fan."
Pros: "I paid for an economy class ticket but got first class service."
Cons: "My Vegan meal was terrible."
Pros: "Clean aircraft. First rate and very attentive cabin staff. High Quality food and mid flight snacks. Its clear a lot of thought has gone into the making and running of this airline. My first experience and quite frankly I will fly SIA whenever possible."

Pros: "the crews were very polite and very helpful"
Pros: "Ease of checking. Empty seat between us"
Cons: "Can't upgrade with krisflyer miles"
Pros: "The aircraft was clean, new, spacious and quiet. The bathrooms were regularly maintained. The food quality, selection and quantity was excellent for the economy class. Even the serving utensils were solid metal and had a very high quality feel to it. Having an endless supply of mid flight snacks was also appreciatd I always like the warm wet towels, which were offered at take off and landing. The entertainment choices were endless, but because it had USB and regular power, I was able to work on my laptop and listen to my podcasts on phone without worrying about running out of battery."
Cons: "The crew lacked its usual pep and cheer. For some reason they seemed very introverted and tired. First time on Singapore Airline that I noticed. The amenities kit was a bit on the cheap side. Also, only the supplied two prong headphones could be used with the entertainment system, I would have preferred an option to use my high end ones -- this was the main reason I chose to just work and listen to my own music/podcasts instead of watching a movie. We boarded and disembarked through the business sections and the aisles were too narrow. The announcements were hard to hear and the temperature was set too low for half of the flight (to kept fluctuating requiring constant adjustment of blanket/jacket). Having said that will keep flying them."
Pros: "Touch screen entertainment system with great variety of programs. Good food, clean cabin, friendly crews. I'd fly again on Singapore Air over other domestic airlines and Japanese airlines."
Cons: "Sound quality of ear buds was not good. No issues if you travel with your own."
Pros: "The service in coach was very impressive! The flight attendants could not be more attentive! I can only imagine how it would be in business or first class."

Pros: "Huge selection of movies Towel service, socks, and toothbrush for economy class Snacks included entire chocolate bars! Friendly staff"

Cons: "old facilities"

Pros: "The stewardesses were extremely professional- attentive & pleasant. The toilet was well equipped. There was no delay in taking off Boarding was orderly & efficient & quick and so was disembarking. The snacks were nice- ice cream, apples, chops, sandwiches. Many other airlines don't even provide snacks on these long flights. The seats in wconomy were roomy & confortable."
Cons: "I can't think of anything that was bad but I didn't enjoy the breakfast. I would have preferred an American breakfast. It was a mixture of shrimp, potato & brocolli. Ivwould have pregerred a criossant & yogurt to the tiramisu & roll."
Pros: "The flight attendants were super attentive and took great care of me, even bringing me headache medicine."
Cons: "I was in a front row seat which meant using my table in the armrest would wake up my neighbor. (Not a big deal but a little awkward) It was also hard to sleep because the seats didn't recline enough."
Pros: "It was the best service ive ever had. The flight attendants came right away and were always coming up the aisle making sure we eye well hydrated and fed"
Pros: "The flight staff were very friendly and always seemed to be eager to help all the passengers. The menu on the flight was also excellent. Wonderful flight"

Cons: "Catering and professionalism of the crew could have been better."
Pros: "Professional and friendly Crew & the movies"
Cons: "Too cold, seats to narrow, food not so tasty."

Pros: "Brand new A350-900 airplane. Better movie selection. Nicer bathrooms."
Cons: "No more advanced seat selection except for an additional $180. No more serving wine and beer with dinner although I think its still available on request. A lot more screaming kids on the flight. Cathay is becoming more like the budget Chinese airlines. Sad."
Pros: "Most of the stuff was regular flights"
Cons: "Even after explicitly asking them for Hindu vegetarian food they gave me chicken with the wrong label. I realized it after eating a bite. They should not have done this mistake."

One hour before our boarding I come to find out that our gate was in a whole other terminal, we almost missed our flight. We would have missed it if I didnt as the ticket counter when is the Seattle flight going to go up on the screen. Poor communication on Alaska airlines part. Not very happy with that I had to rush to the other terminal because I had the wrong information on my boarding pass."

Cons: "The seats are not comfortable. My head kept rolling forward when sleeping because there was not enough recline. Couldn't sleep my entire 14 hour flight."
Pros: "Access to Cathay lounge. Went to the Wing noodle bar and coffee loft. Had a good bite to eat before boarding flight running 15 mins late. My request to have my meal service delayed was welcomed by staf."
Cons: "None experienced"
Pros: "Excellent crew service, comfortable seats."
Cons: "A little difficult to understand the announcement in English."
Pros: "Better hindu veg meal"
Cons: "Leg room"
Cons: "After a stressful 15 hour flight from San Francisco, my connecting flight to Tokyo was delayed by an hour and a half, which is something I'd like to avoid in this long of a flight."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "seat did not recline."
Pros: "Everything- I had 3 seats to relax and sleep. The food was excellent for the vegetarian option."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine, the plane wasn't great but wasn't terrible either. Some of the crew was friendly and the food was decent. The agents in the airports were all very, very friendly however."
Cons: "The main reason for my poor rating of this flight was because when we booked these flights, they were listed as having WiFi available on the flights. The two longer flights are 14+ hours each and happen during the workday for us. This is a total of 28 hours (times 3 people) that we were not able to have in-flight WiFi. Almost all of our work is done online and thus, we could do zero work whatsoever during this flight. We basically lost the equivalent of two whole workweeks because of this oversight about the WiFi, which is very, very upsetting and cost us a ton of money. One of us ended up having to book a separate flight home in order to not lose WiFi for the entire way back, which added another $900+ to our travel costs. Additionally, the crew was fairly unfriendly when we asked about this and seemed to not care at all about why we were upset. We understand that the in-flight crew cannot install Wi-Fi on the plane in the middle of the flight, but some understanding and apologetic behavior goes a long way with an upset customer. Additionally, they were rude whenever we called for service and asked them for anything, always seeming to be so bothered to leave their discussions in the back of the plane. Finally, I've flown many flights across the world and I have to be honest that this was the least comfortable and nice plane I've been on for such a long flight. You think upgraded planes with WiFi would be used for these extremely long flights. We're all very upset about our experience on this flight and would really like to be contacted about this flight and spoken with. We would like for something to be done for us to make up for this HUGE oversight and bad experience. We don't want to have to call the bank and try to get our charges reversed for the flights, but we definitely feel that we were sold something that was not what we experienced. I'm requesting that someone reach out to me directly as soon as possible to work with me on this. My direct number is 1 (480) 225-6034 and my email is email@example.com Thank you, David Zimmerman"

Cons: "Plane was delayed and boarding was a bit confusing at the start but then quickly fixed"
Cons: "The flight from LAX Ron Istambul was delayed for 2.5h, then the flight from Istanbul to belgrade was delayed by 3.5h. Then we learned that our luggage did not arrive, after waiting for all the bags to come out. This was by far the worst flight we have ever experienced!"
Pros: "Very nice love it"
Cons: "Very nice and love"
Cons: "I had to rearrange my bags 3-4 times even though I paid $80 additional for extra weight"

Pros: "Easy communication and promptness"
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Food quality was not as good as on a Turkish Airlines business class flight we took a few years ago"
Pros: "The Turkish Airlines flight attendants are some of the sweetest people you can meet. Good souls and extremely dedicated to customer service."
Cons: "First, the Boeing Executives need to be punished by having to fly in the Economy section of their airplanes. Second, Turkish Airlines (a wonderful company) must impose hygiene requirements for their passengers. I sat next to a man that had insane body odor and when I let the Flight Attendant know she kindly reseated me... It was great until I saw the poor woman who took my place ALSO asked to be reseated due to the man's smell! Unfortunately, I was reseated in the middle of the row, which apparently is by Boeing design, none of the middle seats recline. Who makes an aircraft that handles long (13 hour) hauls with seats that do not recline and are too narrow for the average adult? It was such a painful and uncomfortable 13 hour flight. To add insult to injury, the plane was delayed and I missed my connection and had to sit in Istanbul airport for almost 8 hours."
Pros: "The flight crew was amazing- very pleasant and hospitable. There was great entertainment available which made the flight go quickly. The food was good. We did not realize we had to select vegetarian ahead of time, but having cheese sandwiches available made that easier. The small bag of toiletries that we were given was a very nice surprise."
Cons: "Carrying luggage down stairs after the flight was difficult but the flight team was helpful."
Pros: "Only the stewardesses very helpful and professional"
Cons: "The seats"
Pros: "The crew were generally hospitable and courteous though not well informed. The entertainment choices were varied and enough. The meals were warm. Turbulence was well managed by crew and pilot. The toilets were clean."
Cons: "Flight was late, leaving less time to board connecting flight. The blanket was too small. The food and wine were below standards. The leg rests were absent and not enough room to spread legs. The basket in front too narrow and tight to put in anything. The charging unit for computer/mobile did not function. No clear instructions or help to board next connecting flight either through system or crew."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Increase entertainment options but it was still great just need more latest music"
Pros: "I love the food and service, thank you Turkish airlines, you are the best in the world"
Cons: "Movies varaiety"
Cons: "The flight was 5 hrs late. I have put 2 older passengers with knee problems. they have to go through the satires then what's the point of getting wheelchair???? you guys took $250 more on each tickets so the passengers can reach to their destination faster. but you ended up delaying the flights. and i asked around to many people after this and they told me that you always do it.

Pros: "2 & 1 carry On Luggages, NO PROBLEM even though my Luggage s were 2 + lbs extra Heavy. I like the Smiling Crew, food, comfort when taking off and especially Landing in Istanbul.

Pros: "Not only was the aircraft antique and sporting old seats, but the crew also upgraded two families with infants to the business class where the screamed their hearts out to the obvious displeasure of the paying customers. A true Turkish delight... Unlikely to fly them again."

Pros: "The flight and crew is always great"

Pros: "Economy class seats were comfortable and had more recline than most airlines."
Cons: "I didn't understand why it took us so long to board and take off. The weather was fine; no explanation was offered for our 90-minute delay in takeoff.
