The staff and service of SIngapore Airlines is hard to beat. They are excellent. If they could only figure out their call center fiasco it would be a top airline. Attempting to call SQ is like trying to talk to the dead.
Pros: "Price is good"
Cons: "The food can be more improve"
Pros: "Crew were very gracious and kind."
Cons: "Food not as good as before"
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: "I liked that on the longest leg of my trip - I had an entire row to myself to stretch out. Im old, things like that are important...along with compression socks...haha!"
Cons: "I think the food - I dont know exactly what, because we're on a plane - but I think it could be a bit more appealing? More greens, colors? Not sure, but it was okay."
Pros: "Crew, food, time all great."
Cons: "WiFi did not work. Flight data unavailable."
Pros: "Excellent crew and very well dressed and always smiling"
Cons: "The lights were switched off for a very long time. That can be avoided"
Cons: "SINGAPORE AIRLINES TOK CARE OF MY MOTHER VERY WELL"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very friendly, professional and helpful"
Pros: "The crew did a wonderful job of anticipating needs and having all the little ammenities you could want."
Cons: "They gave you a menu at the start of the flight but didn't serve any of that food, and the food wasn't very good"
Pros: "Crew was polite."
Cons: "For such a long journey, the plane could have been nicer."
Cons: "We had to go through security after coming in from international and I went through a biometric scanner which I’ve done 100’s of Times I was very unnecessarily felt up for 10 minutes. I had shorts and a T-shirt on, and was pretty sure after the 1st round of groping that there was nothing there"
Pros: "Handset to control screen didn’t work. Airline reimbursed me with $75 voucher for inflight duty-free shop."
Cons: "Aircrew took my carry on away while I was waiting to board saying it was too large; left me without the essential items I wanted during the 19.5 hours in the air and two plane changes. Other people were allowed to keep carry ons bigger than mine so I don't understand why they did this."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful and courteous Entertainment system was pretty good Food was good. They could have given water bottles instead of asking for water."
Cons: "Seat comfort in Economy was just ok. Since this was a long haul flight, seats could have been better."
Pros: "Staff very attentive not disturbed after meal The smiles and demeanor of the staff"
Cons: "The flat bed is not comfotable needed help from attendanr all the time felt like i was constricted"
Cons: "Excellent flight service no"
Pros: "We loved the service, quality of food, entertainment, and cleanliness of Singapore Airlines flight!"
Cons: "Economy is still tightly packed with limited leg room considering the distance traveled."
Cons: "Please don’t use just fly.com ever. They cancelled my tkt and never accommodated a new one"
Pros: "Friendly crew I like that a lot. The diabetes food choice ecselent Thank you"
Cons: "The toilets were very dirty"
Cons: "In spite of ordering vegetarian food, was offered a non-vegetarian option and was told that is Asian vegetarian. Food quality was bad too."
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: "food. schedule was on time"
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: "Crews are truly nice and patient"
Cons: "Crews are very nice, food are not really good"
Pros: "Crew was super nice. Amazed at collection of Chinese movies and music. Great alcoholic beverage selection."
Cons: "Hope that there were more time to order and enjoy beverages."
Cons: "Food was very poor."
Pros: "Overall service, good leg space."
Cons: "We were seated in the same section with four babies."
Cons: "It is really good experience. All the flight attendants are good"
Pros: "Such incredible staff. Always Willing to go above and beyond! I flew 17 hours with them and they made the flight a breeze. Great airline, will be flying with Singapore again"
Cons: "Really nothing. I loved flying with them."
Pros: "Crew, plane, punctuality"
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: "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."
Cons: "cramped uncomfortable seats freezing cold in the plane"
Pros: "great service. new plane. excellent video system."
Cons: "not much to complain about."
Pros: "Aircraft was OK."
Cons: "Cabin crew service can definitely be better. Should offer more snacks for long flights."
Cons: "I have no complaint"
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: "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: "service was very Singapore airlines"
Cons: "food in coach was not as good as I remembered from other flights on Singapore"
Cons: "The flight had mechanical issues. They made us sit until 10 pm but still no flight. Then they asked us to go home and come back next day! When we tried to check/in, they said there are no more seats. Then they finally put us on another airline which departed in the night! This is a nightmare. You should not entertain Air-India on your website. I was totally exhausted and taken for a ride by poor airline management."
Cons: "TV screens did not work at all. For a 15 hour flight this is the worst thing possible. How do u kill time !!!! Food could have been better. The first meal was so less in quantity. I was so hungry but they didnt have more to give."
Cons: "They delayed the flight hence my parents Mangalore flight got missed..air India timings are pathetic"
Pros: "Everything is good, just the food is not that great..."
Cons: "Healthy food would be nice.."
Pros: "Onboard crew is willing to help."
Cons: "Everything. Starting at check-in upto flight conclusion, there is always a problem. Their business and first class product is far, far below global standards. Seats are broken, some of them are not cleaned properly etc. For an aircraft that is about 6 years old, it looks like 30."
Pros: "We had taken extra legroom seats and so the seating was comfortable."
Cons: "The audio system was very poor. Could not watch a single movie. On such long haul flights, the entertainment system needs to be proper."
Cons: "Lines at check in counters were too long and there were less number of CSRs available. It took me 2 hours 30 minutes to check-in and get boarding passes. Same thing happened for the bag drop line and it took 1 hour 30 minutes"
Pros: "Good leg room, carry on luggage space was great and the crew was very helpful. Overall flight experience was great, taking and land off wise."
Cons: "The audio head set on the entertainment system was broken. The crew tried to fix it by rebooting it several times but to no avail. It seemed like a hardware issue which should ideally have been caught before the flight. The food was also a bit disappointing - the bread was cold, and the second meal (chicken version) had an odd smell to it."
Pros: "The Cabin Crew"
Cons: "Improve entertainment content"
Pros: "Found flies in it"
Cons: "Flies in food; chipped trays"
Pros: "Food was okay"
Cons: "The flight was delayed which made me miss my connection to Kochi. There are no announcements or communication from Air India. It's not worth flying Air India for cheaper tickets even if it's a last minute trip. I would recommend Emirates or Qatar Airways, if traveling from NY to COK"
Cons: "One has to go thru customs in mumbai (awful experience) then transport them to domestic airport ! We barely made iy to our connecting flight and had to run. Our bags were wet from rain !!! i can see why most people avoid Air-India and Mumbai airport. The morons think building a shiny facility is enough, its EXPERIENCE that matters. Instead of Mumbai it should be called Mum-BYE, just because of the experience."
Pros: "The staff were good, friendly and willing to serve The flight arrived almost 2 hours before schedule"
Cons: "The security didnt have the priority lane The entertainment was not working and took 2 hours to get it fixed"
Pros: "There was nothing like about"
Cons: "First of all flight was 8-9 hours delay from destination Secondly they did not had precise time from Newark at what time flight would depart and than flight reaches India 4.5 hours late."
Cons: "Travel was not comfortable and the food during entire 16 hr travel was horrible. I could not eat anything except tea and coffee. I usually not a complainer about my travel. I always travel by Air India. But past couple of times the quality of food has declined a lot and I thought I should inform about it. Also the AI crew was unprofessional. They were talking in their local language. They should also pay attention to their appearance. Thank you."
Cons: "1. The screen on all the 3 seats was not working. 2. The seats were not comfortable as they were very old. 3. They mentioned there will be a stopage at Mumbai but instead when we reached Mumbai the crew was not aware and they asked to collect bags and checkin again through domestic terminal within half an hour. Would not recommend to friend and family."
Cons: "Using the entertainment system was very cumbersome. For one thing, it did not work at the start and someone had to reset the system. Even after that, the system was very sluggish in responding to commands. The range of available selection was very limited."
Pros: "New flight with chargers for phones. Great food and comfortable seats."
Pros: "The ground crew as well as the cabin crew was extremely helpful. My arm was in sling and I was traveling with my 3 yr old so they helped me everywhere from carrying the baggage to providing comfortable seats."
Pros: "seats are nice and bigger than most aircrafts, leg room is plenty."
Cons: "food was not good, Indian airline serving Indian food and could not get it right."
Pros: "Staff was so friendly that my mother who was travelling alone for the first time didn't even realised that when she reached to mumbai.and food was so awesome and flight departed and landed safely on time."
Cons: "Screen wasn't working for 15 hrs. Seat is worse. Seat has no cusion and they hurt as well. Food was bad and I felt like I will get sick."
Pros: "Direct flight and one less hour the pilots covered the distance . Crew was exlent!"
Cons: "Older flight The seats chosen seem to appear next to rest room than what the seat map showed. Crew helped me seat at different available seat."
Cons: "Air India cancelled our flight out of JFK "Because of the weather" as i was looking at planes taking off there to a perfectly clear blue sky. They do not invest in deicing equipment, presumably. I received a generic auto-text that the flight was cancelled and told to call them. After waiting on hold for almost 30 minutes, I was told there was absolutely nothing they could do to rebook us anywhere within the next 5 days. Our only option was to accept their full cancellation of both the outgoing and return trips. Completely miserable experience."
Pros: "Everything was smooth sailing and even landed 45 minutes early into London. Service was good and no complaints."
Cons: "Not a huge selection of movies in the in-flight entertainment but enough to get through the flight!"
Pros: "Satisfactory in every respect,"
Cons: "Nothing that I can think of."
Pros: "Friendly staff who are helpless because the company is not organized,"
Cons: "1.75 hours late in takeoff Indian food is good but Air India -- foolishly following dietary trends -- does not add enough salt, or spice or oils. The result is food that is tasteless. It is an insult to Indian cuisine. Some purchased food (e,g,, Yoghurt or bread) of very cheap and poor quality) Without proper management and organization, even friendly staff cannot render good service."
Pros: "787 is a great airplane."
Cons: "Entertainment system at my seat was not functioning and crew could do nothing about it. Crew was not particularly friendly or respectful of my preference to sleep."
Cons: "Wishing it wasn’t so long"
Cons: "Tv and lights did not work from the start. This was not sporadic but 7 rows did not have any entertainment or lights for the full flight."
Pros: "Direct flight, convenient landing time in Mumbai"
Cons: "Being India’s national airline, it needs lot of improvement immediately. It isnt of any use giving review here but for the sake of it, I will. The food was mediocre and repeated. Limited beverage options. Crew was not very responding. Many TV screens didn’t work and even after being told thrice about it, crew didn’t fix it and neither told why. Trash bags were lying open in flight’s food pantry. Never seen that with any other airline. Worst part, the seat comfort and quality of everything in the flightwas below average. Food table, seat covers, etc. None of it is a big deal individually but when all things are combined, the experience of flying air india is not great."
Cons: "Literally Everything including - particularly Food. It was really really bad. - The Male Steward was nice, rest am not sure as I hardly saw anyone. - Bathrooms were pretty dirty within an hour of flight - Quality of seats is horrible - The Entertainment system is bad - Flight tracker didn't work so you don't know where you are or how much time left."
Cons: "Poor service, poor food"
Pros: "Everything seemed to work out. Boarding and service was efficient... Plane though a bit older 777-300ER, was still Pleasant enough."
Cons: "Lunch, supper and pre-landing snack served. Bit better than United direct flight. Food was decent and Service was efficient. The staff was polite."
Pros: "Beautiful new airplane with super friendly crew. I was catered to constantly. This with the fast pass to get through customs in under 5 min was wonderful. Highly highly reccomend."
Cons: "Selection of movies for English speaking customers very limited compared to rivals."
Pros: "Steward repeatedly woke me up on a red eye flight to offer me water when I was clearly sleeping and had a blanket over my head-- didn't seem to understand when I explained I'd "just like to sleep and didn't need anything, thank you." screens and headphone jack broken. Very difficult to understand folks on the hotline when I called to see if I could change my flight due to illness. Nice people, certainly-- super kind-- just really not up to snuff for a long haul."
Pros: "Plane staff were very nice. Food & red wine were both very comfy. Loved that they supplied pillows & a nice blanket! The top halves of the seats were very comfy – the same cannot be said for the bottom."
Cons: "Was upsetting that the entertainment consoles did not work for virtually all of the flight, and even when they were the content that I wanted to watch 'could not be loaded' for some reason."
Cons: "The flight is just on time"
Pros: "Doesn't matter when I say what I didn't like"
Cons: "We were seated in the 3rd row to a wash room which was broken even before we took off. Water (mixed with pee and other stuff) started leaking and the staff started to put down news papers and sprayed some perfumes. During the flight the leak got worse and carpet under our seats got completely soaked with pee waters. It smelled horrible and we couldn't even put our legs down. Crew didn't do anything to alleviate our pain. They didn't even bother to check on us other than to serve food when the time is up. It was the worst 14 hours our family had to live in our entire life. Shame on Air India."
Cons: "The in-flight entertainment equipment was not working on quite a few seats. The headsets were broken and the controls to flip channels was not working. Hope they fix the equipment so that the passengers can actually enjoy the variety of programs available."
Pros: "- The crew was pretty good. Helpful overall"
Cons: "- The boarding was handled very badly. Couldn't believe my eyes to see something as simple as boarding looking like a complicated job! - AI crew is pretty rude when it comes to helping with overhead cabins: The cabins are high and it really is very difficult for most individuals to manage it single-handedly. For crew to say this is to any passenger,"You opened it. Now close it" without a 'please can you close it' just sounds atrocious and mean"
Cons: "Sewage from toilet backed up, sitting in sewage whole flight, no offer of reimbursement or compensation for flight that was health hazard"
Cons: "Limited collection of Hindi and English movies. In particular, not many new releases were available. Other international flights have much better collections of movies"
Cons: "The plane was incredibly dated, did not include any type of internet (I would have bought for a premium given the 14 hour flight!), nor basic navigational info, so passengers were left not knowing any details about trip progress throughout the duration of flight. This is as close as one gets to flying in 1992."
Cons: "The screen from the front row was loose and fell on my leg which was painful. I felt I was treated as if it were my fault!"
Pros: "Helpful crew and the food was alright."
Cons: "Cracked seats, faulty entertainment systems, broken USB slots, the flight was not cleaned after the previous trip. There was crumbs of biscuits inside the headphone pouch. Another passenger had broken headphones. The touch screen rarely worked and rebooted 2-3 times during the flight. Very old aircraft. I was transported back to the 90s."
Pros: "Nothing to like other than desi crew who are relatively helpful for elderly parents who cannot speak english"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 9 hours and no information was shared with passengers waiting. There were no seating arrangements for elderly parent or families with children Do not fly Air India"
Cons: "Don't count on making meetings and connections if your taking Air India"
Cons: "It would have been nice if more check - in counters were opened and expedited the process and cut down big lines. - Also baggage was not checked thru Hyderabad. Baggage was collected at Mumbai airport, went thru customs and had to be rechecked for Hyderabad flight."
