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: "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: "The service was excellent start to finish. I found the movie selection to be excellent on the plane and the food was tasty and above average for airline food, and the seats were comfortable."
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: "The trip was horrible we have to sit separately three places."
Pros: "Very organized"
Cons: "Seats could be a bit more comfortable in premium economy"
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 ground staff at JFK, especially Jon, were very helpful and friendly. The flight crew was also very friendly."
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: "Comfort Great book the cook meal choices Restful Attentive service"
Cons: "What’s there not to like about SQ"

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: "FOOD, ADVANCE SEATING & JETWAY TO UPPER DECK"
Cons: "SMALL SPACE FOR FEET IN BUS. CLASS AND HEAD REST NOT THE MOST COMFORTABLE"
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: "Singapore air has amongst the best service out of all airlines."

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."

Pros: "Everything was amazing. Best flight I've ever been on!"
Pros: "Outstanding crew! Super attentive in my section.. I had seat 43E."

Cons: "You could have warned about the 2nd bag fee! I paid $80 for having a 2nd bag!"
Cons: "I can’t be more demanding. Everything on the flight were good."
Pros: "I was disappointed that Air New Zealand charges US15 to reserve specific seats. For our party of 3, that would be US90 RT so I didn't do it. But at the gate I asked for window seats and the attendant gave us excellent seats at the front of the plane."
Cons: "No issues that caused us any problems."
Cons: "Terrible customer service."
Pros: "The sky couch is always very nice."
Cons: "We told the crew the water tasted funny, like dirt, they said it was fine, just had lemon in it. Pretty sure we know the difference between lemon and dirt taste."

Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Pros: "Nice flight"
Cons: "That they left my luggage, 1 piece off entire flight! A brightly patterned piece! In 50 years of flying!!! Has NEVER happened! Had to spend the 1st several hours running around looking for underwear and jacket! Not a great start to vacation! And $100 nzd doesn't buy much!"

Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff"
Cons: "No WiFi or outlets on aircraft"
Pros: "Will never book though BYOJet again."

Pros: "The pilot would tell us as we were flying over different mountains, regions etc, and the flight was not at all crowded, and there is so much more seat space than on any domestic American flight I’ve ever flown!"
Cons: "They charged 60NZD for one small checked bag! And then I misunderstood the policy on lithium batteries and switched my power banks from carry-on to checked bag and they confiscated them. So there goes that."
Pros: "Everything was ok"
Pros: "The people and the service were top notch. I fly on numerous carriers and overall AirNZ has been my favorite, hands down, primarily because of the helpful kind friendly staff."
Cons: "Disembarking down onto the tarmac, and being made to stand out there for about 5 minutes (supposedly for safety's sake) while another plane was being pushed out from the next gate, all the while breathing in the choking nauseating jet exhaust fumes while our own plane was idling."
Pros: "Nothing really. Smooth boarding.on time departure"
Cons: "Passengers with more than one bag as hand luggage"
Pros: "Everything! It's Air NZ!"
Pros: "Great food (most airlines do not serve any), great entertainment system, & cleanliness is superb."

Pros: "Customer service and Food was excellent!"
Cons: "Someone sitting in my seat already!"
Cons: "Having to pick up our bags and going through customs was horrible and stressful. Bags coming off the flight last made the customs line very long, after going through customs couldn't find where to check our bags on to Queenstown, finally found the the automatic check-in, too late only one person to help. So late had to walk to the domestic terimal, in a hurry. Finally found the check-in, checked all 3 bags, arrived in Queenstown, only two came in."
Pros: "Not very much"
Cons: "The crew in my area didnt like her job or passengers in general and it was obvious."
Cons: "We were booked on a 7 a.m. flight Wednesday morning. We arrived from Syndney the night before and wanted to make sure we were set for the early morning flight so went to an Air NZ information desk to get boarding pass. The agent printed out an e-ticket and said we were good to go. We arrived an hour and a half early to the gate, with our carry on bags as we have done all over the world. We heard an announcement about bags needing to be checked and assumed ours would be gate checked if needed (as anywhere else in the world). The gate agent didn't arrive til 20 minutes before the flight and told us we DIDN'T have a boarding pass and needed to return to the ticket agent and check our bags. By the time we ran back to the ticket agent we were told it was too late to check our bags. We had to pay $100 more a piece to fly LATER through Christ Church. We were on our way to meet our kids for vacation and ended up losing a day and $200 additional dollars because we were given inaccurate information by the Air New Zealand info desk."
Pros: "The service was great and the seats had a lot of leg room. Very easy to check in online and drop bags at the airport."
Cons: "The wine was delicious and I wanted more"
Pros: "Crew was excellent; good and friendly service. On time."
Cons: "15 minute walk from terminal to gate without any pre-warning. Food was mediocre."
Cons: "Airplane to cold. Had to wear a sweatshirt and cover up with a blanket the whole flight."
Pros: "The Boarding Emirates at Logan Airport is a nightmare. The staff are unhelpful, and take long time to process Transiting passengers. The Desk is understaffed, and the staff is rude."
Cons: "The flight has enough crew on board, but the staff usually stand together in the galley and keep gossiping, instead of going around once in a while and check on passengers. It's a long flight and crews change but the passengers don't."
Cons: "I am an Emirates skywards member and I was placed in the middle seat when my preference on Emirates and Kayak is an aisle seat. After boarding it was explained to me that I couldn’t move to an aisle seat even though more than one seat was available. I asked to pay or to use miles I have accrued."
Pros: "Overall good experience, could have been better if we had got seats of our choice."
Cons: "If we could have got seats of our choice."

Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "Crew was not very friendly. Had argument with a old man in the next row over serving glass of water"
Pros: "Staff helpful and courteous under difficult conditions."
Cons: "People were allowed wheel chairs without a doctor'snote. 59 wheel chairs passengers is ridiculous. Make it a requirement wheel chair assistance required a doctor's note. And check hand luggage weight. Many bags excceeded the limit."
Cons: "The airline’s insistence on keeping a passenger limited to only one carry on bag and then weighing to make sure that each carry on item was only 7 kilos was just plain ridiculous."
Pros: "We felt safe and the flight landed a bit early."
Cons: "Boarding was a nightmare, couldn’t hear zones being called, etc. assigned seats had us in the middle and basically so confined we couldn’t eat when they gave us food. Very uncomfortable. I had such a bad experience I got online and paid for isle seats for the return trip, and thought maybe that’s what they wanted all along ..,"
Pros: "Professionalism of flight crew. Movie & entertainment selection. Overall cleanliness of aircraft."
Cons: "Ground crew was not well organized. Lacked attention and professionalism. Bad way to start a flight."
Pros: "Really exceptional service! Very impressed!"
Pros: "I recently booked a flight on Qatar first, to Ko Samui, Thailand. When I got on the plane, I asked the flight attendant to please be careful when he pushed the cart down the aisle because the last time I flew, the flight attendant smashed the cart into my elbow and drew blood. The flight attendant laughed at me, so I told him, calmly, that if it happened again, I would sue the airline. He didn't like that, and so for the next ten minutes he sent three different flight attendants over to ask me crazy questions like, "Do you have anything you would like to tell us?" I have no idea what this was about. Eventually, I was told to get off the plane, which ended up costing me over $1,500 in transportation, hotel, and new flight (on Emirates) fees. It was and still is a nightmare because my vacation has been ruined due to having no money. I'm a master's-degree-holding English teacher of 11 years with no history of ever having been asked to get off of a plane for any reason, and no, I was not drunk because while waiting for my luggage to be returned, had a conversation with three Boston airport police officers who did not arrest me or even understand why I had been kicked off of my flight. Nor did I speak a single profane word to the Qatar flight attendants or security, and of course, I did not use violence or resist when I was told to get off the plane. Unlike Qatar's staff, the Boston police officers were very polite and understanding. Emirates, on the other hand, was a completely different story. They were great. The staff was friendly, and when I was sleeping, they didn't send their staff over to harass me. I have flown on Emirates, Qatar, and Ethihad many times, and I truly don't understand why Qatar's staff have been instructed by their managers that it is okay to lose long-time customers and kick professional teachers off of their planes just because they think I wasn't perfectly sweet and nice to them all the time. I am an American, and in my country we have freedom of expression and speech, as long as that speech does not indicate violent intentions or use profanity or insults. Basically, I felt as though I was in a country with no rights to free speech at all. Presently I am having my lawyer work up legal documents for Qatar to get my money back and to reimburse me for travel and hotel expenses, as well as having to take two extra days off of work to reschedule my flight. I truly believe in the transparency of the travel industry through using comments like those I am making you readers aware of right now, and I assume you will benefit from this rhetorical question/advice: Emirates and Ethihad are sometimes a little more expensive than Qatar on certain flights, but is it really worth it to risk having Qatar take your money and make you miss your flight for no reason? Is it acceptable for an airline operating in the USA to deprive Americans of their right to express concern to the flight attendants on their plane?"
Pros: "The service provided by the crew is top notch. No one goes hungry on Emirates."
Cons: "The seat pitch is getting tight."
Pros: "The staff near Baggage check-in area are always rude with the customers, it also happened to us in the past."
Cons: "Very very poor customer service"
Cons: "One of the flight attendants was extremely rude. She passed over me several times like I wasn't sitting in the most uncomfortable seat. In the middle. She didn't want to give me water, I had to ask if I could have some water. TSA held me up, I almost missed my flight had to be rushed on and no place to put my things so I had to sit squashed in the middle seat with all my bags for a 12 hour flight. I won't EVER go through Boston AGAIN. I won't ever chose Emirates for that long flight again, if I can help it. The WORST!!"
Cons: "Did not get wheelchair assistance for my dad as requested."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Boarding is complicated . They didn't allow cabin baggage and laptop bag together. Only 1 is allowed"
Cons: "Cannot choose seats without paying a fee which is ridiculous. There is no way to get a window seat on the plane. I have never travelling on a non window seat in my 20 years of flying until this time."
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly. And, the amenities offered are superb."
Cons: "Nothing everything is good"
Pros: "Value for money. Courteous, efficient, and pragmatic. Recycled blankets and headphones."
Cons: "Bathroom door broken I was locked inside for several minutes"
Pros: "Crew were very nice"
Cons: "Seat cushions are horrible There is no padding. 'All the chairs dirty too. Decor was very old"
Pros: "The amenities in Business Class were excellent - the seat was luxurious and you could actually catch some sleep. The food was gourmet and the staff was very attentive. They made a small mistake and forgot to serve me dessert but the mistake was remedied immediately when I informed them of the slip up."
Cons: "I paid a LOT of money for a Business Class seat and yet I was never notified that my flight was going to be delayed in departing by 12+ hours until after I arrived at the airport. According the the flight crew, they were notified at 9am that morning and the airline had my phone number and email, yet I arrived at the airport at 8pm because I was never notified! I spent $50 to take a taxi to the airport and now I had a 10am departure the following morning! I was given no compensation for this massive issue. Just "sorry, come back tomorrow!" I was very upset! My choices were either take ANOTHER $50 taxi home that night and then another $50 taxi back in the morning or get a $150 hotel room at the airport. So glad I paid THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS for my Business Class seat (a big spend for me as I've never flown Business Class before but felt like a special treat for a special occasion). WTF, Emirates!"
Pros: "The selection of tv shows and movies was excellent. Very diverse. The crew were also very responsive to anything we asked (water, questions, etc...) They gave me good advice regarding my connecting flight."
Cons: "The plane was an older model, so the touch screen was a bit unresponsive. Our tvs were shut off for the first two hours because of a glitch."
Cons: "Seats elbow room was insufficient."
Pros: "not so many people in my flight, the crew were so nice and very helpful."
Cons: "first meal was bad,I requested low fat meal and they gave me the beef something which was meh!"
Pros: "Food and service are excellent"
Pros: "Cosmetics kit is of high quality. Airport pick up and drop off."
Cons: "Seats are not wide enough and uncomfortable for business class. Not many food options. TV remote is not intuitive. When seat is turned into bed, it is not 100% flat, and has some elevation. Cannot comfortably speak with co-passenger due to privacy board that doesn't come down fully. TV positioning is not ergonomical and co-passenger's TV screen is too bright when trying to sleep."
Pros: "Lovely online and phone customer service reps. Comfy flight with good entertainment (tv)."
Cons: "My baggage (x3) was delayed 3 days, which was frustrating to say the least. I received no apology email or flight discount/refund/coupon, etc."
Pros: "Free movies!!! Blanket and pillow provided. Also the crew was very attentive."
Cons: "Switching of terminals to Fly Dubai"
Cons: "Despite ordering a vegetarian Oriental meal, I was given a meat dish in my meal!"
Pros: "They got us there safely"
Cons: "We did not get the seating booked online The room in the terminal at the boarding gate was extremely small and inadequate. It created much anxiety and discomfort among the passengers. Some were disgruntled."
Pros: "Crew took a post card photo of whole family .. Provided toys ..books for kids .. Small things but made difference.. Crew were nice and fast"
Cons: "Food was not good chicken smelled .. Taste not good"
Pros: "There were a lot of different movies to watch. Also, the food was real good."
Pros: "Service was excellent. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Touch screen at seat was not responsive. Took many presses on the screen to get it to respond."
Pros: "This is my third time flying with Emirates and I can not say enough positive things. I only wish my husband was able to fly with them."
Cons: "No organization, had trouble in check in. On Boston airport we had to do passport check there was a long queue. Nobody was answering any questions. I think direct flights from Emirates are outstanding but the code share with Jet Blue did not work for me. For food there was Hindu meal option which did not specify veg or non veg we were served lamb but FYI Hindu meal means no beef and could be veg or non veg which does not make sense. Emirates should clarify that. So we ate nothing on our flight to Dubai."
Pros: "My flight was very comfortable, and the staff was very attentive."
Cons: "I was not able to choose my seat for this flight"
Pros: "The baggage allowance, excess baggage rules are some of the most generous rules. The service of the people on board is great I general and the aircrafts are impeccable."
Cons: "The first leg of Hyderabad to Dubai was about 3.5 hours. The airhostesses must have been tired from another long haul prior to the HYD-DBX leg. A couple of them were a little less than charming to some of the passengers. Many of the people from Indian subcontinent don't use the magic words - thank you and please. So, it could come out likes bit rude but a curt answer in stead of yelling would have sufficed. My flight was from EWR to HYD with stopovers at BOS and DBX. A long wait at Dubai can be understood and expected. But a 7 hour layover at Boston was a killer. If Emirates tied up with any other carrier other than jet blue, this could have been avoided. Even otherwise, after a 20+ hour journey, another 7+ hour waiting was a killer. Please change it to make the journey shorter"
Pros: "Entertainment and food"
Pros: "Best airline I have had the chance to fly with. Right up there with Virgin - this time it surpassed. Great staff, lots of room, clean, amenities (blanket, pillow, toothbrush, eye mask, earphones for the movie ), 2 quality meals + meal voucher for overlay redeemable at a variety of options."
Cons: "Response time (over an hour) on requests. I don't believe there was internet available on the second flight?"
Pros: "Great food. Decent comfort but only because the plane was pretty empty. Crew was great but they kept disappearing. People need to sleep, sure, but I felt a little abandoned at times. Good selection for movies and tv."
Cons: "Boston Logan airport was a mess. There were at least 15 people working at the gate, fooling around. Meanwhile we were all sitting there waiting and waiting and waiting to board. It was a bit rude."
Pros: "Very attentive, patient, helpful and friendly on-board crew Food was good In-flight entertainment options"
Cons: "understaffed counter at the gate. People waited in line for as long as 45 minutes for passport check Audio quality of airline provided headsets was poor. Some would not work. Others did not play audio on both left and right sides"
Pros: "Food was delicious. Lots of free movies. There was even a ton of entertainment options I didn't try, so I am sure there is something for everyone."
Cons: "The headphones jack required the two prong kind, which I did not have. But they provide headphones free, so it wasn't that big of a deal."
Pros: "Quick, efficient and on our way. Crew were nice."
Cons: "Flight Attendants again just zoom by with the trash bag and my hands were full of the trash and she didn't even notice. So I left on the empty aisle seat next to me. I went to sleep and when I woke up 30 mins later the trash was still sitting on the seat next to me."
Pros: "Frequency of service and inflight entertainment options."
Cons: "All the kids. Too many. Too many crying babies. It was like a day care in our section. I've never seen anything like it. Also, the ICE interface is a little confusing. And the touch screen a little weak."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Very small boarding area to board such a large plane. Broken headphone jacks on all the seats. Flight ran out of food options. Toilets ran out of soap. Overall comfort of the seat was mediocre at best. It took about 2.5 hours to serve the first meal. By the time we got our dinner, it was 1am (flight took off at 10)."
Pros: "the crew is the best thing about this airline. they are professional, helpful and seem to like their jobs - excellent across the boards flight times to and from Dubai - excellent from boston I will likely use this service again"
Cons: "for all the hype about how this airline is a "luxury" class airline their seats in economy were the same as everyone else's. Not every comfortable for long halls. They could have a premium economy like British Airways does and I bet it would be popular. The business class was also sub-par. We sat behind it and I could see that they did not even go to flat beds-- Turkish airlines (I hate to say this) was far better. for the cost of a business class ticket $4500 - it should be a lot better) also food quality was ok - not great entertainment - not a huge variety for those who just want something mindless - the movies were ok not great."
Cons: "I got pulled aside and delayed my boarding because someone wanted to switch my seat. WHY do I have to be delayed for this? I felt it was very poor customer service. I. You can just print a list and ask at the aircraft's entrance."
Cons: "The food service was not great. They should increase the frequency of meals. Got the worst seats both time. The seats are old and recliner doesn’t come forward as it should"
Pros: "The tv size, charging station, foot hammock"
Cons: "No delay,"
Pros: "Flight attendants super sweet and really paid attention to any needs. Comfy seats, lots of movies to choose from and a tasty breakfast."
Cons: "For such a long flight should have given us more water. But were responsive when asked."
Cons: "That I was rebooked for a flight I showed up to before it took me off. Literally people that showed up after me got on the plane"
Pros: "The crew were really good, kept us informed about the delays and what was happening, and they all remained upbeat and chatty"
Pros: "Flight crew is great"
Cons: "Didn’t like the the whole check in process. None of the system worked. Manual check in all the way and took so long. Not enough staff to service."
Cons: "Not being able to web check in causes stress pre-flight."
Pros: "Detail and attention to peoples specific needs. Service prior to boarding and during were excellent"
Cons: "1. Food option ran out quickly 2. The row I was sitting in had limited leg room (61)"
Pros: "I liked the grilled chicken and the beef selection"
Cons: "The actual greens in both salads were weak; soft not crisp and cut in large chunks nose that were hard to handle and not flavorful."
Cons: "My business class seat was the bulk head seat. I paid dearly for this ticket and was scheduled to do business in Sydney when we landed. Having both the bathroom and food prep just beside the bulk head seat means that the staff needs to mandate a quite environment so that those persons in those seats can sleep. The staff fraternized with the passenger and I was unable to sleep. I should have been warned about this seat selection. Also the curtain that separates the areas should provide more sound proofing ability. Devastated upon arrival. This was one of my worst Qantas experiences."
Pros: "Liked the food, flight attendants, entertainment and overall comfort even though it's just economy. You just have to come prepared with what you need to stay entertained and comfortable ie snacks, comfortable clothes and shoes, jacket or sweater, pillow, headphones, music. Better of you can bring your own headphones that use bluetooth and headphone jack cable."
Cons: "Boarding process is chaotic at best and starts 20 minutes before take off. It works but it's very chaotic for economy passengers. I am sure it's much easier and nicer for premium economy and business select and first class passengers so you get what you pay for lol."
Cons: "Really unnecessary delays."
Cons: "Unnecessary delays"
Pros: "it was good to escape more than 3 hrs long, tiring journey to Sydney and also lesser wait period at Sydney"
Pros: "Great service on the flight."
Cons: "The boarding process with qantas at JFK is chaotic. No one is policed on their seat numbers, status or fare class. this creates a chaotic process for boarding and securing overhead luggage space for higher fare paying customers Very bad lounge at JFK if used to first lounges like Cathay and JAL"
Pros: "Mobile checkin, e-boarding pass, straight to the gate!"
Pros: "The crew were very polite and helpful given the stressful circumstances."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. One staff member trying to deal with a full flight of delayed and tired passengers. Given the delay out of NY (due to weather) connecting flight to melbourne was missed. Not happy that I was put on a flight to Sydney instead. Entertainment system is dated. Personal headphones don’t plug in and the interface was unresponsive. Expected better from qantas."
Cons: "Rigid with assigned infant seats. Would not move us to bassinet bulk head area though we would pay for it. Flight went well regardless."
Pros: "Attentive staff with great food. Only issue is seats in economy are a bit cramped."
Cons: "Seats a bit cramped in economy."
Pros: "Clean plane and polite crew"
Cons: "Left late and food was just average"
Pros: "Entertainment system had a good selection of tv. Pity the sound was affected by poor maintenance."
Cons: "Jack port for sound system damaged again. Horrible pullled pork sandwich. B737 is horribly uncomfortable to fly as it is too narrow especially where the seat is level with a fuselage rib. A330 is much better."
Cons: "They do not offer any options to passengers who have allergies i.e Onion and Garlic"
Pros: "Felt looks after by crew"
Cons: "Bathrooms were disgusting, plane was dirty"
Pros: "Movie selection was excellent"
Cons: "They missed giving me a chocolate!"
Pros: "Assistance is good."
Pros: "The interior of the seats a very nice. QANTAS blankets and cushions are comfortable. I also like the little drop down net under the seat for you feet to rest in. The QANTAS flight staff are great. I also like that they don't go down the aisle with trolleys a lot (just for the meals) and that they just come around with jug and cup for drinks."
Pros: "Great service. Perfect flight"
Cons: "Entertainment system was not working at my seat"
Cons: "I am a frequent flyer with QANTAS and a regular customer for many years. Why then do I get the worst seats on the aircraft (last row without reclining). These seats are often assigned to me and they are extremely uncomfortable. I booked a paid fare and did not claim points. My FF preferred seats are mid-plane, aisle. The screen had very poor contrast and it was like watching through cloth. To make it worse the entertainment system had very poor sound with long periods of frozen frames and staccato sound making it difficult to follow the plot. My wife's system (also FF) was the same. Not happy with the "special welcome" given to FF passengers!"
Pros: "Food was better than expected, recommend qantas to others based on this alone"
Cons: "Qantas safety video was to long... painful to watch. i would love ro see airlines start recycling the waste generated in fliht"
Cons: "I was surprised that we were flying a different carrier than Emirates"
Pros: "plane will clean and service pleasant. hot meal service on 2.5 hour fight."
Cons: "limit weight of roller carry on limited to 8 kg, though did not check weight of shoulder bags New Zealand immigration is intense with bio inspection - check that you do not have any nuts or other issues as took a long time to inspect packaged food bought at Sydney airport Prior to check-in, needed evidence of flight leaving New Zealand, not just confirm number - paper with actual ticket number"
Pros: "Thoughtful and friendliness of the Crews"
Cons: "None that i can think of"
Pros: "Loved the two cords in the seat behind me and the iPad idea"
Cons: "The complete lack of space between seats Old style plane Very average new movie selection"
Pros: "Everything was great about these flights, food and service included. We had a slight delay on our return flights but were updated along the way. Definitely recommend!"
Pros: "I arrived in Melbourne 9 hours after I was scheduled to. The flight was severely delayed out of NYC and then I missed my connection out of LA and flew to Sydney instead. I was offered a $20 voucher for food at jfk, and that was it."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "The plane was freezing cold even with multiple layers and a blanket"
Cons: "1. Flight 12 left 2 hours late from New York 2. Flight left 21/2 hours late from Los Angles 3. We asked to be seated on the tiles , as we are seniors we needed to get up regularly during the night (16 hour flight during the night) We were seated window and middle seats. The person on the aile was had a broken knee and was wheel- chaired on to the plane. As a result we could not get up to go to the bathroom. 4. Because we left late from Los Angles , we missed our connecting flight on to Auckland. Qantas was kind enough to apologise, put us on another flight and gave us vouchers worth a grand total of $10. 5. We then arrived 2 hours late in Auckland, where we missed our connecting flight to Wellington. 6. Our 2 bags that were checked-in at New York are still missing. This is being written 4 days left New York. 7. WE have since had to purchase new winter clothes."
Pros: "I liked receiving a menu of food options. I liked the movie selections (although there were better option from JFK>LAX than LAX>SYD)! Crew were friendly."

Pros: "Staff obliging food excellent on time all good"
Cons: "All good"

Cons: "The five hour delay. Would have appreciated a phone call so I didn't have to get to the airport so soon. Food used to be so much better"
Pros: "Staff was courteous and the in flight food was good"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1 and a half hours to start with. Although the entertainment system on the plane is very good, half way through the flight it started having issues. Movies stopped playing and then the whole system locked up. First it was just individual seats that had problems but eventually the entire plane was unable to view anything. Even a complete reboot did not help. We spent the last 6hrs of the flight unable to view anything even though they repeatedly tried to reset the system"
Pros: "Food was amazing as was the crew"
Cons: "Seats get stuck and difficult to maneuver to the upright position."
Pros: "Good meals, friendly service. Very comfortable"
Cons: "2 hour delay"
Cons: "Two suitcases were lost"
Pros: "Crew was helpful, worked to make the passengers feel comfortable."
Cons: "The connection didn’t allow for enough time so I missed my connecting flight. LATAM doesn’t recognize PreCheck, even though US airports do offer that but without the printout boarding pass passengers can’t take advantage of the shorter lines. LATAM also charged for both flights to check baggage instead of charging once for the whole trip."
Pros: "Mediocre flight and service"
Cons: "Check-in was terrible, boarding also very disorganized. Crew on board was ok; very few flight attendants spoke English."
Cons: "No complaints, good airline, good service, good staff"
Pros: "The crew that flew us there was great"
Cons: "they overbooked the flights and the way they communicated it to passengers was a complete disaster. I was able to board and travel but I had to sneak out of the actual line and show my visa appointment receipt to a latam staff person. It was very hard to talk to the staff most of them were just screaming "go to the line" and were not really keen to listening to what passengers had to say. I found a latam person that wasn't really dealing with this situation and managed to get him to talk to other latam staff about my visa appointment. It was pretty stressful for me to have to deal with the possibility of missing such an important event without a good reason."
Pros: "Good entertainment on board and the crew was fairly attentive, but not as attentive as on other airlines."
Cons: "Food was not great, but at least it was edible. Thought the crew could have also asked about refills more often."

Pros: "the whole experience. the food was great , attendants were top notch friendly and super helpful"
Pros: "Flight and especialy landing was top noch"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic. There was no entertainment nor food, so I cannot rate it"
Cons: "The fact that Kayak never wrote down my email. So when they cancels my flights I never got notice until I was about to leave for the airport."
Pros: "I enjoyed Everything except the layover"
Cons: "My 3 Hour layover was extended to Nine hours. The Peruvian airport offered me a hotel room i turned down. Peruvian gentleman on the plane just prior to landing was telling me how dangerous it is in Peru in the area surrounding the airport. I was given four hours of wifi coupons and coupons to a breakfast and lunch at a restaurant by our gate, where i was waited on poorly. Next time i may look for a layover in Florida."
Pros: "crew and service excellent.."

Pros: "Staff and service was great"
Pros: "Left on time the next day."
Cons: "Flight was canceled after I had gone through security and was waiting to board. I received an e-mail from Kayak, but no notification from LATAM. No one was at the gate; waited a long time to speak with a representative. They booked me on the next morning flight from JFK, but sent me to a hotel in Long Island - 1 1/2 by bus that was jammed and overheated. Hotel was old, not kept up and food and service bad. Bus driver could not tell me for sure what time we were going to be picked up in the morning - maybe 6:30 AM? I was told. No one at the gate gave me this information either. I was ready at 6:15 AM and the bus was full. I waited for second bus. No breakfast at the hotel. Flight to Santiago was uneventful and crew during the flight were polite."
Cons: "Too small seating space"
Pros: "The service on board is very good.when you have a business customer service is almost everything."
Pros: "The upgraded me to first class!!!!"
Cons: "No complaints!"
Pros: "Getting off the plane"

Pros: "Beautiful, new, clean plane with friendly staff and pretty good food"
Cons: "Confort, sits to small"
Pros: "New Airplane and a lot leg room"
Pros: "This was American Airlines. So the quality of the flight was significantly better."
Cons: "I flew LAN many years ago and remembered this flight to be a lot better than it was this time around. The seats barely recline and in Economy leg room is comparable to AA flights going to South America (which is pretty bad). Forget about sleeping. I had some hopes for the food but it disappointed too. Breakfast, for example, was essentially a warm sandwich with a paper thin layer of ham and cheese. They stuff you with bread. Had a much better experience flying sister company TAM."
