Pros: "Everything, perfect flight"

Pros: "Foods. Drinks. Entertainment."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything’s so perfect!"

Pros: "The cabin crew was pretty good. This was the only saving grace in otherwise very poor experience"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 2 hours and they changed the gate from one end of the terminal (A15) to the other (C1). The waiting area was cramped. This being the home of Singapore Airlines, the way managed this entire thing was pathetic. Boarding announcements were also confusing."

Pros: "Everything food was better selection and allowed me to taste bali food before arriving. The seats were comfortable on the last plane Thank god"

Pros: "The crew werr very helpful and patient and so many languages they knew. Impressive they need a raise"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable I slept 30 min at a time on my 14hr flight. The food is nice but a bit bland the first time its amazing but after more than 2 planes mix it up plz"

Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Boarding was just ok, but departure delayed by half hour. Seats were really poor. Zero comfort.. felt like sitting on a cramped park bench. Entertainment system is ancient. Can't see and can't listen properly. Didn't expect this type of horrible aircraft from Singapore Airlines!"

Pros: "Great service and attentiveness with great food and entertainment, including a nice big comfortable seat!"

Pros: "The customer service at the Check-in, the flight attendants, the movies and the meals. More than my expectations! Will definitely use Singapore Air in the future in my travelings! Will recommend it to my circle of friends and relatives! Thank you very much. You are the best airline I've used since 1976!"
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "The plane was new. The in flight entertainment system was good, although I never got to experience it fully because the Flight attendant kept switching it off, as I had paid extra (an arm and a leg) for a “bulkhead seat”"
Cons: "The service was beyond awful! The Flight Attendants had a “could care less” attitude. I had special ordered a meal, and they gave me the wrong one. I did not want to make a big deal, so I just ate it. Then they did not offer any beverages when the meal came! I literally had to beg them to make me their famous “Singapore sling”. Shocking really!!. When I had my coffee, my request for cream and sugar went ignored THREE times. Finally they grudgingly gave me only cream, rendering my coffee undrinkable. .....And the list goes on. Never ever will I travel on this horrid airline again!"

Pros: "check in went smoothly. helper was friendly and helpful."

Cons: "First experience with Singapore where the crew made a negative impression. As soon as the plane pulled away from the terminal, crew members seemed rushed and frantic, literally running back and forth from Economy Premium to the galley gathering items. Approximately every 7-10 minutes, crew members would be running back and forth next to my seat with heavy foot steps, which would wake me up. I also noticed that certain crew members were shouting at passengers to get their attention instead of lowering themselves to be heard. One flight attendant almost spilled orange juice on me because she turned around too fast trying to serve drinks. I'm not sure if they were short-staffed, or if it was the influence of a certain crew boss, but something was definitely wrong."

Pros: "The flight attendants were nice, attentive and joyful!"
Cons: "Sitting in a middle seat. Was told at the jetway counter no aisle or window seats were available. I saw no fewer than 5 empty aisle seats in my area."

Cons: "Food , both quality and quantity was poor. Entertainment - world movies did not have many choices for such a long flight"

Pros: "Services, the Care and the Concern!"

Pros: "Movie selection was great. Food was decent. Comfort was expected"
Cons: "Our seat neighbors were annoying, but nothing the staff can do about that!"

Pros: "Flight is comfortable, food is nice. Most importantly, the flight was on time."
Cons: "The entertainment system requires additional setup, and need my own mobile device. My mobile device was low in battery while I'm on my flight, so I'm not able to view any movies during the flight."

Cons: "Food wasn't the greatest but it was adequate considering shirt trip"

Pros: "Excellent crew services"
Cons: "Entertainment system is rather tired for today’s standard for first tier airlines, in particular the headphone jacks which may not work from wear & tear. It’s a hit & miss whether the sound works or not. Obviously mine didn’t on one side this time. Very frustrating if you are on a long flight and there’s nothing you can do if the flight is full."

Pros: "The business class bed was the best I have yet encountered. The food and service were great. And the stews? Gorgeous and so agreeable. One young lady even helped me with my back injury; turns out she was studying physical therapy. You can't find a better ride than that,"

Pros: "I like the services from Singapore Airlines."
Cons: "Your web site tried to charge me $90 for aisle seat, do you agree that this is a big joke or what? I have decided no use your company any more. Not sure why a great airlines like Singapore Airlines would partner with your company???"

Pros: "friendly staff top Service top Inflight"
Cons: "new aircraft, 2 x usb charging ports, 50+ movies, very quiet aircraft."

Pros: "friendly staff top Service top Inflight"
Cons: "old aircraft, no usb or power point charging. choice of 5 movies"

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: "Amazing service and comfortable lay flat bed"

Pros: "The flight wasn't full so we had a spare seat between us, That made economy barely tolerable."
Cons: "The seats in economy are now Way TOO SMALL! You better start calling Economy - "Stearage"! Food was not as good as on past flights with SA. Movie selection not as good as past SA flights. Earphones supplied are horrible!!!"

Pros: "I got in some exercise during the delays and gate changes"
Cons: "Delay after delay, gate changes, lack of care from employees, missed a day of vacation in Germany, missed out on photos and memories"

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: "Personal TV"

Pros: "Staff friendly and efficient"

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 best long leg flight I've been on. I managed to get a whole row to myself and that made the 12hr flight so much better. The crew was very professional, kind, attentive, and it was grand."

Pros: "The crew Were so attentive. And Also not untrusive. If i was asleep they left me and offered me food and drink when i woke. Excellent airline."

Pros: "The new non stop flight frim Singapore to San Francisco really reduced the total travel time. I saved at least 4 hours in choosing this flight"

Pros: "The sevice was on point. Flight attendants were beautiful and worked harder than any other airline I have been on. The uniforms were on point too. The television had every new movie you could watch. Food, for an airline, was great. All drink service was included. Best airline I have ever flown!"
Cons: "Wifi cost 12 bucks and hour."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Before booking my flight on Singapore airlines, I took the time to read through some reviews and to be honest, the reviews left by previous passengers did not do the airlines any justice. I rarely, if at all, leave any reviews myself but my flights (from SFO - Singapore and vice versa) were AMAZING! I was sitting in economy and the level of attentiveness that we received, I could only imagine how great first class could be. if i could fly Singapore on all my trips overseas I would."

Pros: "Great food, friendly staff, on time... what else do you need?"

Pros: "It was a standard flight"
Cons: "did not have my meal preference even though it was on the menu and being offered to others. Screen did not work to watch shows/movies. It was an outdated plane"

Pros: "The food was great!"
Cons: "The announcements coming from the boarding crew were not clear or hardly under stable."

Pros: "Great food and fantastic service"
Cons: "Needs more legroom"

Pros: "Everything about this airline was great. It would be impossible to go hungry on this airline. Half the time I can't get a bag of peanuts on a 6 hour flight. On Singapore airlines someone was always there to accommodate you. Best service I've had yet. Highly recommend this airline!"

Pros: "Comfortable, warm with food you could eat! What more could ask from standard economy class"

Pros: "Nothing i like"
Cons: "Terrible ground service in changi airport singapore"

Cons: "charge a few $ more but serve some food on a 5 hour flight. very cold feeling"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The seat I had booked and was confirrmed was not available, double booked."

Cons: "I was turned away at the gate and was unable to board the plane. It was an awful experience!"

Pros: "I liked sleeping for 10 hrs & arriving in AKL ready to roll!"
Cons: "I paid for seats, but there is no record of my purchase at NZ air."

Cons: "The snack were very simple. They don't communicate properly all the different snack options."

Pros: "The crew was great. Really friendly, we got skycouch and it was really comfortable"
Cons: "Food was a bit too rich, maybe a lighter option in the menu would be useful as both were quite thick sauces."

Pros: "The seats are comfortable. I was fortunate to have a gap in the middle seat. On my flight there was a delay due to a person needing to disembark before the flight took off. The flight dealt with the person inconsiderately and explained to everyone the reason for the delay."
Cons: "Nothing. The flight was efficiently run and seats comfortable."

Pros: "Air New Zealand is a great airline. They give you a lot of food and the seats seem to have a little more space between them so your knees don't hit the back of the chair!"

Pros: "I love the entertainment system. The airline attendants uniforms are very colourful."

Pros: "Great flight with wonderful service."

Pros: "Attendants were friendly. The agent at the gate rerouted my flight after my initial flight was delayed. She explained she did that so that I could make my international connection in time."

Pros: "Very friendly and accommodating staff. Good food, comfortable seats, and excellent entertainment choices."

Pros: "Everything was ok."
Cons: "The Auckland airport is the closest I have ever been to burning in hell."

Pros: "Two bathrooms just for PE, good food, attentive crew, nice wide seats, ample legroom with footrests, nice headset."
Cons: "You can’t sleep to music because each track has to be selected individually."

Cons: "The staff asked for my return ticket to the U.S. I told them I have a round trip ticket from and to Japan. I have to show them my U. S. Navy identification card otherwise Air New Zealand would not have processed my boarding pass ticket. Air New Zealand discriminates."

Pros: "The flight crew was absolutely wonderful."
Cons: "On the phone we were trying to add one more piece of luggage to pay for and they charged us too many times.... and depending on who we talked to either nothing could be done, or it was somehow going to magically fix itself by itself. Frustrating"

Pros: "Extra leg room at front of plane."
Cons: "Seats too narrow."

Cons: "departed to late .. nearly missed connecting Auck- Hong Kong. Suitcase was left behind .. will receive 498 hrs later .. not good enough"

Pros: "Great crew, great entertainment"
Cons: "Wasn't a fan of the dinner but no big deal"

Pros: "The choice of movies was good! And seats were comfortable!"
Cons: "Would have liked bottles of water instead of cups of water as they are easier to store if you don't want to drink it right away. Food was mediocre!"

Pros: "I fly this route quite often and can't imagine using another airline. Always professional, always comfortable, always fun. Staff, food and entertainment are top notch. I literally trust the pilots with my life. Keep up the good work :)"
Cons: "I left my awesome brand new Nalgene at the terminal in SF. Never to be seen again. Could be worse, I suppose."

Pros: "The crew was super friendly and accommodating. They found solutions for any questions or difficulties we had. They checked any excess luggage before you boarded. Boarding the plane was done back to front which was nice in loading bags and passenger without waiting for people in front of the plane. Meal service was promptly served so complimentary alcohol. Both meals were appreciated on such a long flight."
Cons: "Only suggestion would be bottles of water that you can keep refilling."

Cons: "The boarding process @ Aukland Airport is a mess. We had to use the machines and some were not working properly and not enough staff to help customers. It was crowded and I had to fight my way to find a machine."

Pros: "Air New Zealand has now become my favorite airline. Guest comfort is their priority."

Pros: "I was sitting in an exit row with tons of space. The men flight attendants were fantastic! On moved two boxes and we were able to prop our feet up. They were so attentive to us I felt as if I was in first class!"

Pros: "I really enjoyed the opportunity to be with my husband"
Cons: "The seats were okay in comfort"

Cons: "Seats and aisles have become so small and tight."

Pros: "Air New Zealand is a great airline. Top notch crew, very comfortable seats and you arrive feeling rested and pampered. Food and entertainment only outdone by the patience and professionality of the crew."

Pros: "Didn't happen"
Cons: "They rebooked us- didn't happen"

Pros: "THE crew WAS really nice about everything"

Cons: "very old plane"

Pros: "See above"
Cons: "Packed flight so hard to stretch out, not much food or water but it was a red eye so lots of people were sleeping"

Pros: "Air NZ is fantastic"

Pros: "The food was good and there was enough room in Economy. The staff was friendly. Lots of movies and shows to choose from. I felt more comfortable on a 12 hour international flight than a 2 hour domestic flight."

Pros: "Over all the flight was excellent. My previous flight with them was terrible but this flight was awesome. It was great that there was a headphone jack in the entertainment system so you could take your own better headphones. Only issue is that when you are taking off or landing you aren't allowed to have a cable between your seat and screen so you will have to resort to using the supplied ones plugged into armrest if you want to continue to listen to movies or audio."
Cons: "When playing videos on the entertainment system there was a glitch that made the movie play from the start when paused. This also happened for my wife. Also the displays no longer tilt so when the passenger in front reclines their seat your display is on a terrible angle."

Cons: "Poor movie selection"

Pros: "The foot rest helped but did not come up as high as in the video so had trouble with my knees. If it had been level with the seat I could have slept."

Pros: "The reclining seat pitch and space by feet and under seat was great. Staff was nice."
Cons: "The food was so awful. I could t eat the chicken only the plain rice. Please just provide more plain food not heavily seasoned. Bread meat starch and veggies would be perfect. The headphone speaker volume contrast between hearing the tv and when the pilot chimed in. It blew out my eardrums every time! The soap dispenser shot out all over me and made a mess."

Cons: "Air new Zealand should upgrade their Business class. Seats are old, like 15 years ago airlines. Video old style, air show did not work during entire flight. Cabin crew said they can reset it but not sure it's going to work. Food was OK. Air Tahiti Nui offers a better service between PPT & AKL"

Pros: "Great service"

Pros: "Entertainment was great! Comfort was decent but much better that the previous flight with Air Canada. The overall the feeling that I get from Air NZ and their employees is that they have FUN! It's infectious and makes for a great flight experience."

Pros: "liked free movies"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Better air on 787 Decent legroom Comfy seats Good food and wine"
Cons: "Legroom can be better"

Pros: "The crew was exceptional, the on board entertainment was fantastic, and you could order snacks and drinks from your seat at any time."
Cons: "The seats were very cramped, extra narrow and almost no leg room. With aflight this long it go rather painful. The upsideit that I was able to distract myself with the provided snacks, drinks, and movies."

Cons: "This was ok"

Pros: "Skycouch Food Wine"
Cons: "Legroom can be better, even though it was good"

Pros: "Smooth flight except turbulent at times"

Pros: "It was a direct flight to Vancouver which was great in that I didn't have to change planes."
Cons: "I felt claustrophobic as if a was in a can of sardines, but to my relief I found a light sleeping pill in my handbag and was able to feel relaxed. I am not overweight but felt it was very difficult to reach for my handbag on the floor. As I said, in all seriousness, there was not an inch of space to move without saying excuse me to the person beside me. I must add that whoever made the rules for seating space between the rows on the aircraft must have been paid off heavily. The flight attendants were great."

Pros: "The crew was incredible ! And the entertainment options as well"
Cons: "Space was so tiny ! Couldn't get comfortable and usually never have a problem sleeping on planes."

Pros: "Love the space seats. Excellent space and service. More ordered boarding. Air New Zealand staff very helpful (even provided tape to secure box after it had been left out in the rain after an earlier American Airlines flight)."
Cons: "Long flight (but that's not their fault!)."

Pros: "The crew really cares about their passengers"

Cons: "The flight was 3 hours delayed - and the captain never told us exactly what was wrong. The boarding lane was a chaos as well - and the tv screens never really worked. Terrible!"

Pros: "The 1-hour complimentary wifi."
Cons: "Hope they had the immigration/arrival card on the airplane."

Pros: "Crew was amazing"

Cons: "Qatar airport duplicTe security check"

Pros: "I already paid for seat and amount debited but it was not booked when i check in I want my money to be refunded soon"

Pros: "Crew excellent"
Cons: "Baggage collection at Washington could be improved"

Cons: "Quatar is the best"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Just had a hard time finding flight attendants. Every time I went to the back of the plane, half a dozen of them were sitting around and chatting it up. Felt guilty for asking for water. Not the service that I expected from Qatar Airways. All 4 flights were a struggle to get proper service."

Cons: "Really we enjoyed this fly"

Pros: "Great crew and front desk"

Pros: "There was a flight attendant that this was only her second flight. She was amazing. Really enjoyed the service."

Pros: "Great aircraft"

Pros: "The food and flight staff were good"

Cons: "I requested a chicken meal and I told the steward that I would wait because he did not have anymore at that moment. He never came back until it was time to pick up trash. I proceeded to tell him I never got the main course, he apologized and told me that there was only an egg entree left. I went ahead and took it, then as a way to apologize he offered to get me a piece of fruit, a banana. I accepted but he never came back with it. It was not a big deal but I did not appreciate being offered something and then no follow up. Next time do not offer something and then not follow through."

Cons: "Lost baggage maybe in Rome airport Conbecting flight qatar to vueling was worst"

Cons: "Boarding process, Smart Phone App, food quality, Announcemebts, Time to unboard the plane, flight information displays at Doha are not easy to find the flight info"

Cons: "n/a"

Pros: "Everything."

Pros: "There is a reason Qatar was ranked the best airlines last year. From service that was above and beyond, whether on the plane or in the airport and lounges. The nicest and most attentive people. Outstanding menus and comfort on the plane."

Pros: "Excellent customer service, from the check in process, to boarding, to flying 21 hours from Boston to Phuket with infant- we couldn’t have asked for a better experience! Everyone was so accommodating and helpful as we traveled with our 7 month old a lot g distance."

Pros: "Crew were great and sincere"
Cons: "Qatar gave problems changing flight for emergency purpose and had produced all documents but they wanted further documentation which could not have access because at,a foreign country. Felt they don't care and it was all to do with money which had to pay."

Pros: "The entertainment was good without any hiccups"
Cons: "The crew was in a hurry burry which didn’t give a very good experience. I would suggest the crew to be little more tolerant and make their customers feel good.foo"

Pros: "The cabin crew and Doha airport staff are absolutely great at thinking about customer comfort. Experienced it in the Business Class lounge as well as on the flight!"

Pros: "Crew was good, they were trying hard to keep customers happy."
Cons: "Limited food selection on top they ran out of available options so basically only one beef option was given. Either u like it or not. Pretty old movies in entertainment section, broken seat controls, charging ports and headphone inputs. No clear announcements by captain."

Pros: "I freceuntly fly between the US and South Africa and only fly via Qatar Airways, and every experience thus far has been great. The food is good quality, friendly crew and I would recommend it to anyone."
Cons: "The sandwiches are a little dry and movie selection a little limited."

Pros: "Staff were professional, food was good and seats were comfortable."

Pros: "My steward, Gabriel, provided service that exceeded my expectations. He made the long haul more bearable."
Cons: "The shape of the seats was not optimal for my height/size."

Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "I had to ask for everything. Crew members kept passing me by for food service and drink service even though I was awake. I had to tap/call them each time they passed by. It turned into a joke among me and the people sitting next to me. Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"

Pros: "Didnt have food My mother has diabetes and she had one meal in her 14 hr flight Unacceptable"

Cons: "delayed flight"

Cons: "Not being on time from Doha to chicago, it was an hour late departure."

Pros: "It was the first time using Qatar Airways and I'll continue doing so in the future."

Pros: "Overall flight was pretty good"
Cons: "Food wasn't as good as the other 3 legs of the trip (Houston-Doha, Doha-Kathmandu and Bengaluru-Doha) The hand rests on these planes didn't go all the way up making it less comfortable to be travelling on a 16 hour flight with a toddler."

Pros: "Food and drink options. Courteous."
Cons: "Smells from others"

Pros: "Rhank you dear Qatar for excellent customer service"
Cons: "Food"

Cons: "I am hard of hearing. It would be appreciated it you would offer more movies with English subtitles."

Cons: "Realised that for short flights they do not supply headsets. This is rather strange, since the media content they have is useless unless there are headsets / paid or free whichever"

Pros: "Qatar airlines blew me away! The food was top notch and frequent, the flight attendants were incredibly nice and attentive, the planes and entertainment were world class aND they were affordable for our flight from Boston to Bangkok."

Pros: "Business class on Emirates is always top-class. Very comfortable. Friendly crew. Easy boarding and disembarking. Good drinks. What's not to like?"
Cons: "Food was a less impressive menu due to COVID, more like what you'd get in economy class. But we can't blame the crew for not wanting to do close-up personal service like in the past, during a pandemic. We enjoyed another drink to make up for the lower quality food!"

Pros: "Everything! Emirates is the best airline in all categories in my opinion."
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "same, crew is amazing"

Pros: "Service & caring were superb"
Cons: "The snack was served not good and eatable. Emirates like one of leading air lines could have been served a better food. If it is cost cutting effort to serve a very basic snack like this, customers will be finding other air lines in the future."

Pros: "Very accommodating and friendly crew. Comfy seats, modern plane, and not too full of a flight."
Cons: "Nothing. It was great."

Pros: "Great food and Entertainment"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The entertainment options were very good"
Cons: "Bathrooms were dirty. Did not have all the food options listed"

Cons: "The check in process took a long time; longer than other carriers. In spite of so many crew members being there at the gate, there were no announcement of the boarding process. It used to be there before. When asked the staff is very politely responds on what is going on but the rest of the passengers do not know what's going on. Wonder why the staff do not follow the seating process by zone as mentioned on the boarding pass."

Cons: "Former travel to Dubai offered food vouchers. No vouchers given and the layover was over 5 hours and portions were smaller on the plane. Bad in flight entertainment screens."

Pros: "The large collection of movies and the comfy seats"

Pros: "Comfortable seat, good service and food, and a very comprehensive on board entertainment selection."
Cons: "A lot of background noise when using the supplied headphones"

Pros: "Ya"
Cons: "I like it"

Pros: "The crews"
Cons: "The wifi is bad the food is bad im in business class"

Cons: "On second flight from dubai to kabul was horrible. The did not offer an infant place for infant and we were among the passengers in a very very tide place,the other things were good"

Pros: "Delayed my first flight and I missed all my connecting flights and put me on another flight 12 hrs late"
Cons: "S"

Pros: "The flight was quiet."
Cons: "Service is extremely slow."

Cons: "The flight fid not depart on time and therefore I missed the connecting flight. Had to spend a day in a hotel until the next connecting flight."

Pros: "Really liked the long journey. Was a bit nervous given the 15 hour flight but was pleasantly surprised. Service was good as well."
Cons: "The crew were really young and not very talkative."

Pros: "Good facilities, food and entertaniment. Seat comfort not so good."

Pros: "I flew round trip on their flagship Airbus 380 from Toronto to Dubai, about 13-14 hours. Crew was great, plenty of food and drinks, about 3x meals, lost track of how many drink runs, maybe 5x. It was almost too much food & drink! The in-flight entertainment was great, touch screen was fantastic, USB port, even power outlet, on back of seat, plenty of entertainment choices from movies, to video games, to trivia, I even got a kick out of all the camera's mounted on the outside of the plane with all the flight tracking details available on screen, plenty of bathrooms. Its such a big plane it didn't even feel like you are flying. I'm 6'4" so I always choose an aisle seat so i can at least stretch one leg out, the crew was even mindful not to bump my elbow or even my leg when it was extended out into the aisle while i was asleep...which was more than accommodating to something I shouldn't have been doing! Overall Excellent, I wish every airline was like Emirates. They're bringing back the old school service and class airlines used to be like. I know people don't dress up while they air travel anymore, but I'll be dressing up the next time I fly Emirates! ;)"
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind."

Cons: "None"

Pros: "Very clean. New fixtures nice screen"

Cons: "I checked in online, but when I went to drop my bags there was about a 20 min delay. the agent needed to make 2 phone calls and conference with 2 supervisors. All this without letting me know what was going on."

Pros: "Everything I have come to expect on Emirates Economy, except for boarding and disembarking the aircraft involving bus journeys - and the condition of my suitcase on arrival."
Cons: "1. Use of buses on departure and arrival. The length of the bus journey from the terminal, in a vehicle with no seats, made me suspect we were going the whole way to Geneva by bus. 2. Don't know whether Fly Dubai or Emirates are to blame but my suitcase (a top grade modern Samsonite) was a mess by the time it reached Geneva, with rubber seal on one side of the zip peeled back and almost off. Why can't airlines and terminals ensure baggage is treated with care and respect?"

Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "More comfortable seats"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Bathroom is clean, but could be better if more attention is being given."

Cons: "The check in counter service is terrible. Very unprofessional with terrible attitude. Can not pronounce the gate number clearly. After I clear up with him, he started gossiping with his colleague as it was my fault for not comprehending his English. How did Cathay Pacific become this way?"

Pros: "Liked: moive selection. Hagendazs ice cream. Flight went smooth."
Cons: "My check in bag was lost. Hope to get it back in the next few days."

Cons: "With the new security rules for flights to the US, they took my water bottle at the gate during boarding. I was dehydrated during the whole flight. The small cup of water they give during the flight is not enough for me."

Pros: "Can't say anything was better or outstanding."
