Pros: "The entrainment was amazing!"
Cons: "Seats were a little cramped"
Cons: "My Vegan meal was terrible."
Pros: "The trend to offer more comfort in Economy Plus and similar leads, of course to less comfort in normal Economy class. The ticket price was certainly attractive but it is doubtful that it was good value. Economy Plus might not be good value either."

Pros: "No fuss flight but lacking that something extra"
Pros: "To be fair, my rating will be very high due to it being the first time flying Business Class on Singapore Airlines. Unfortunately it was a short flight so I didn't et a chance to experience the whole service properly as I needed. I felt like royalty with the service offered by your staff who consistantly came to check if everything was in order without making a nuisance. Fantastic food and beverage options too. Overall a great experience, but would have liked it to be a 12hr experience instead of 5."
Cons: "Flight was over too quickly."

Cons: "That I could not afford to travel first class! which must have been marvellous when economy so good."
Pros: "Courteous, Professional Crew. Amazing Service."
Cons: "The Manchester stopover was just a lot of standing in lines. From Manchester to Singapore, the plane was full and my seat mates didn't get up when we needed out. So, we escaped to the back for a while where we were "hushed" by a stewardess. The stewards didn't seem to like it when we were out of our seats, but 12 hours is too long to be stuck in a middle seat."
Pros: "Great food and plenty of movies. Friendly crew"
Pros: "The flight experience was pretty great overall.."
Cons: "I didn't like that interacting with their websitewas not very iser friendly or reliable. While most domestic airlines allow you to easuly interact with your itinerary I pretty much had to just show up and hope everything worked out. Also no alerts or other functions."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, but other than that, flight was great."
Cons: "the gates the time intervals and the connections..."
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: "The service"
Cons: "The quality of the red wine"
Cons: "The fish is terrible - no matter it is regular or low salt meal."
Pros: "Very good entertainment system."
Cons: "Food was horrible. No drink service. Old seat."
Pros: "Crew was courteous."
Cons: "Seat needs to be much roomier. Entertainment and Food should be good and more options."
Pros: "The crew were busy but very attentive"
Cons: "I could not plug in my headphones because of the proprietary plug on the airplane. I understand some airlines used to use proprietary plugs to keep people from taking their headphones that were offered complementary for the flight but I’d rather use my high end noise canceling headphones."
Cons: "Airplane was extremely hot, service was poor"
Pros: "crew amazing"
Cons: "flight always late as usual"
Pros: "The crew was hard working, food was ok"
Cons: "Line up for boarding as well as storaging of our carry-on could have been managed better"

Pros: "A perfect landing/touchdown into Auckland. Great pilot"
Cons: "Passenger immediately behind said that they couldn't watch their movie properly when I wanted to recline my seat for sleeping position. Had to wait!!"
Pros: "Smooth easy ride and great business class lounges."
Cons: "They need to cater for more Europeans in their food offerings. They also need to carry enough to ensure they do not run out. Bathroom locks require maintenance."
Pros: "Overal, very pleasant flight."
Cons: "My headphone jack did not work, but I was able to switch seats. I could see that being a big draw back if I was not able to switch."
Pros: "Very courteous and helpful with handicapped people like my mom."
Cons: "I can’t find a number to call to report an item left on the plane, and I would seriously pay a couple hundred extra dollars to any airline that offered a child-free flight."
Cons: "The seats seemed like they had no padding and it kept stabbing me in the back. Seat belts were so thick and hard i couldn't lean in any direction to get comfortable as it would stab me. My partner and I were also seated separately. Painful flight, disappointed."
Pros: "Little more leg room!"
Cons: "Punctuality doesn’t seem to be a priority for Cathay Pacific or Cathay dragon"
Pros: "Everything. Great staff, punctual departing yimes, good communications. I have taken many airlines and this is the best if not one of the best. Keep up the great work. Only suggestion I would say is showing what types of foods offered as special meals, menu i mean."
Cons: "couldnt find anything to complain about"
Pros: "The Stewardesses were polite"
Cons: "I requested special meal It wasn’t good and I got the food poison which make me sick."

Pros: "Chicken rice"
Cons: "Mess in TPE"
Pros: "Even though the line to board seemed massive and very long the crew boarded everyone very quickly and timely I anticipated a very long wait and in reality it wasn’t"
Cons: "Nothing stood out negatively"
Pros: "CREW AND PLANE"
Pros: "I really appreciated that Cathay flew another plane in to pick us up when our original aircraft was mechanically grounded at the previous destination. The crew were very professional."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed due to mechanical failure and didn't arrive from its destination: Taipei. We were not told about the possibility of our flight being cancelled as we arrived at check-in, we were allowed to check our bags first, issued boarding passes and *then* we were told to come back to check in counter in 3.5-4 hours. Our checked luggage had already been taken and with it, clean clothes, toiletries and other items that could have made the waiting more comfortable. After coffee and a snack we decided to check in to the capsule hotel at Narita. Minimum stay was one night at that hour of the day - for stays after 6pm. While I appreciated that Cathay got us out later that evening, the plane we flew was one of the oldest in the fleet: the seats did not recline at all so it was very uncomfortable. It was a late night flight but no one was offered pillows or blankets. (I did receive one upon request). We arrived in Hong Kong in the early hours of the next morning - 3 hours late - after the airport train had finished running so I paid for a taxi home which I normally would not need to do since I already had a train ticket. so my flight experience did cost me some extra money this trip."
Pros: "Great crew. Super friendly."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "1-hour delay due to inclement weather"
Cons: "Plane got delayed for an hour, WITHOUT any air conditioning. I forgot what the captain said about the HKG airport not capable of providing air conditioning to the plane. Anyway, I began sweating after 10 mins, and it sucks."
Pros: "Flight attendant spoke good Mandarin and was willing to continue to speak it even to someone who didn't look like a Chinese speaker - unlike some Chinese airlines where they launch into English assuming that if you don't look Chinese you can't speak Chinese."
Cons: "A glass of wine or beer would have been lovely."
Cons: "We were all supoosed to sit together (there were 3 of us) but my sister got separated at the last minute and put on a center seat elsewhere with no explanation."
Pros: "They gave 250 ml bottle water each on breakfast and dinner I like that . The crew members were helpful and friendly"
Cons: "There was less choice of movie. It would be good if they add more Bollywood movies and movies with more than 4 rankings."
Cons: "We were scammed by Kayak and Cathay Pacific. We had entered all our information correctly: first, middle, and last name. Cathay Pacific did not print the middle name of the boarding pass. Apparently, Hong Kong is strictly on the passport exactly matching the boarding pass. We were stopped before security and Cathay Pacific decided it was the perfect opportunity to charge us $400 for a rebooking instead of amending the name, which we had entered correctly in the first place. We were pushed back and forth between kayak and cathay when kayak told us they weren't able to change the name on the day of the flight. Will never fly cathay or book from kayak again."
Pros: "Nice flight great service"
Cons: "I like everything"
Pros: "Service is good."
Cons: "Food is too simple."

Cons: "Flight was delayed."
Cons: "All four flights with Malaysia Airlines were delayed, no reasons and no information. Appalling."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by two hours"
Cons: "Felt more like a domestic flight than an international"
Cons: "I have never had to stay at a hotel overnight because of a missed connection but when I made the reservation I wondered how you would honor the 1 hour layover and not miss. I wondered this before any of your delays. I was assured the connection would wait but not correct and you did miss. If you would have told me at the airport this would happen I would have made other arrangements. Instructions on what to do was quite poor too. As a foreigner to be handed a stack of vouchers without direction on where to go for transportation wasn’t satisfactory."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "The crew was not friendly, and the food selection is limited"
Pros: "The crew was extremely hospitable, and the food was excellent."
Cons: "Creaky seats in business class, below average selection of inflight movies and food that was substandard. This was a very oddly configured A330 with the seats in business way too close to each other. Every time they make an announcement you have to deselect whatever you were watching again."
Cons: "Feel airline maintenance is slipping second flight in a week where they have tv trouble"
Cons: "Crew service"
Cons: "No seat back entertainment. Very old plane."
Cons: "cabin not so clean, no foot rest. But crew good service."
Cons: "aircraft a bit old and my remote control was broken, lunckily my next seat was not occupied, so I can move to next seat and the seat a bit old and decline angle so limit. if compare with business class seat of other airlines, it's a bit not up to standard."
Pros: "Smooth flight, great entertainment"
Cons: "The air con totally not cold!"
Cons: "I haven't even made it to my destination yet."
Pros: "Check in was super easy, flight left on time , arrived early baggage was delivered in 10 minutes."
Cons: "Connecting Time"
Pros: "Pleasant steward"
Cons: "Delayed and waste time at Jakarta airport"
Cons: "Seat back didn’t stay upright so it was uncomfortable when I wasn’t trying to sleep."
Pros: "The crew were nice and good entertainment"
Cons: "Got delayed in kuala lumpa for nearly 5 hours with Not many updates fir us to know what’s happening then they left my luggage there and still don’t have it 15 hours later"
Cons: "For 50 min flight we waited 45 mins in taxi"
Pros: "The cabin crew and this was the only flight that reflects the correct boarding gate on my boarding pass."
Cons: "Tight seating made it less comfortable than normal, and mechanical issues caused some delays."
Pros: "Can’t find anything good."
Cons: "The airline is protected by the government. Hence there is no motivation for them to improve. This airline is my last choice. My biggest dissatisfaction is the hospitality shown by the crew.. not sincere and in some cases rude... is this the MH - MALAYSIAN Hospitality that they keep advertising? Very disappointing.."
Pros: "Staff onboard were good"
Cons: "Many hours delay at Miri, MAS staff abandoned posts so they didn't have to deal with passengers. Apalling service"
Pros: "Friendly & attentive crew"
Cons: "Departure delay (10 minutes)"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew"
Cons: "Food. Arrival arrangements (although this may be out of the airlines control - slow immigration, disorganised luggage collection."
Pros: "The flights were on time :)."
Cons: "The queue to board the plane was very long due to the fact that there was only one person doing the check-in. It will make things more pleasant if they have two people instead of one person."
Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "Nothing i can think of"
Pros: "We arrived at the counter 1:50 before scheduled departure. The queue took 55 minutes for us to reach the counter. We were told then we should have rushed the counter to clear the 1 hour hurdle. There was no approach by staff to warn the waiting queue to do this. We were given boarding passes and told to try our luck taking the luggage through security and try gate baggage check. We made the plane 20 minutes before scheduled departure"
Cons: "Very old plane equipment Short seat pitch limits economy class passenger comfort"
Cons: "2h+ delay"
Pros: "A mediocre flight is better than an awful one? At least we *had* an entertainment unit. And there was a USB outlet so phones/ipads could remain charged throughout the flight."
Cons: "Mine was a cramped experience in an old airplane, sadly normal for the industry. Food was bad. Entertainment unit was one of those press-the-screen-and-maybe-10-seconds-later-it'll-react types. Crew wasn't very communicative about what each cart rolling down the isle was for. Not a terrible experience, just not particularly good."
Pros: "Good was great."
Cons: "Flight was late approx 1 hour. Seems like a regular occurrence which is not good"
Pros: "Leg room. Thanks Charles. Legend!!! 9c but prefer 10"
Cons: "My screen didn't stay up. Needs fixing"
Cons: "Their app is useless. Not user friendly and always down ! Their staff can't even give proper directions on what need to be done in terms of getting upgrades ! Such a shame how it this airlines is getting from bad to worst. They use to be great and my number one choice , but now they are just a disappointment. I am only supporting MAS because they are my national carrier"
Pros: "Crew were awesome. Could not do enough for you. Very personable too!"
Cons: "Security at Adelaide very slow and under resourced."
Cons: "Very uncomfort flight, very bad timing, Food is not good"
Pros: "The flight surprisingly arrived ahead of schedule :)"
Cons: "The food, at least it was better than the food out of KUL"
Pros: "Service from the crews"
Pros: "Easy to get my boarding pass at the Changi airport. Seating was nice. Not many passengers in this flight."
Cons: "The magazine in my seat pocket was dirty."
Cons: "Lost baggage took 24 hours to arrive. Rude staff."
Pros: "Left and arrived on time. From just the flight point of view, it was correct but traveling now is more than leaving from A in order to arrive to B"
Cons: "I could not select that we wanted a vegetarian menu on the website of this company. The KUL airport is not very big, not many things to do there, very few restaurants. The issue is that if you fly with this company you arrive at KUL. Steward was kind but rough - efficient like a robot... and the headphones are very poor, I could hardly understand what was said when watching the films."
Pros: "Whilst I realise this is an Asian airline the warm roll was very doughy & tasteless & the breakfast wasn't at all good."
Cons: "The warm roll was doughy & tasteless & the breakfast choice was not good at all. Would suggest a yoghurt & cereal option for non Asians."
Pros: "Delicious food"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "We bought the entire ticket under Malaysia airlines with connecting flight out of Kuala Lumpur to Taipei in 1 hr. The agents in malysia airlines couldn't check us into the connecting flight because it's co share with China airlines and was rude to us when we questioned them why since we bought the tickets from them. We need up having to run to the connecting flight at Kuala Lumpur because the arriving flight was late. Very unprofessional"
Cons: "We bought the entire ticket under Malaysia airlines with connecting flight out of Kuala Lumpur to Taipei in 1 hr. The agents in malysia airlines couldn't check us into the connecting flight because it's co share with China airlines and was rude to us when we questioned them why since we bought the tickets from them. We need up having to run to the connecting flight at Kuala Lumpur because the arriving flight was late. Very unprofessional"
Pros: "Cabin crew friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Red snapper was over cooked and rubbery. MH used to have great food. What happened??? IFE system was poor although flight was only over an hour in length - not a major issue."
Cons: "our vegan food was not provided"
Pros: "First experience with Malaysian. Really good. On time both boarding and take off. Food to my liking, perhaps spicy to others. Crew were polite and did their job well. Over all good and service and experience more than expected."
Cons: "Was looking forward to see and experience new KLIA. Had heard about it, perhaps, 10-15 years back. Not that great, bit crampy. Open seating near gates is current style. Toilets are bad, truly Asian!"
Cons: "Second flight in a row for a one hour flight and we are delayed one hour. Better just go with a low cost airline then"
