Airline reviews

Pros: "Great seat, cabin crew was fine."
Cons: "Too much confusion trying to just find a shower in the lounge"

Pros: "The cabin crew was excellent -- friendly, always helpful, energetic."
Cons: "We requested a seafood special meal. The food quality was satisfactory, but most of the items tasted very bland. The accompanying dishes were unimaginative -- raw vegetables (salad), steamed vegetables, pickled vegetables. One exeption was a smoked salmon bit with capers -- this was the tastiest part among 8 meals over 4 flights."

Pros: "Simple check in and boarding, right on time."

Cons: "More movie choices. More substantial second meal."

Cons: "If the flight was on time."

Cons: "Luggage lost. Tv audio did not work"

Pros: "Wonderful crew"

Pros: "All exquisite dishes they served were excellent !"

Pros: "Good efficiency for boarding an good in air entertainment"
Cons: "Delayed for an hour while already boarded"

Pros: "Seat was spacious. Crew was nice."
Cons: "Lack of individual air vent make the flight uncomfortable. I was too warm and unable to sleep even though it was an overnight flight."

Pros: "From the food (dinner and lunch), to the spacious seats, to the impressive beverage selection, there is little I would change. The small touches, including coming through the cabin regularly with delicious green tea, made this a wonderful flight."

Pros: "Two choices of meal and friendlier staff. Props to JAL."

Pros: "Cabin crew were very nice. Food was okay, while the legroom was good too."
Cons: "Delayed flight, but the email notification from JL was lacking the most important detail... The new take off time! It was 70 minutes later than advertised, but then delayed by another five minutes on top after a late take off."

Pros: "Premium economy is more worth that the price"

Pros: "Service and Entertainment were great. Lots of legroom is great."
Cons: "There are no air vents per seat so on the whole I was very hot and uncomfortable during the flight. One other detail: this is not Japan Airlines fault, but at LAX we had to sit on the runway for an hour because there was some confusion about the parking space for the plane. After a nine hour flight, to sit and wait for another hour was very uncool."

Pros: "Superb service from checking (Chicago) to arriving (Kaohsiung) I flew economy and there’s plenty of leg room. Meal selections are better then flying 1st class cross country in the US."

Pros: "The food"

Pros: "Amazing service and amazing food! For such a long flight I was extremely comfortable! Loved that the crew members kept me informed since I was spotty with Japanese they were very good!"
Cons: "Can't really say anything bad! It was great!"

Pros: "I was very surprised Japan Airlines staffs welcomed at boarding gate in Chubu Centrair,Nagoya with friendly smiles, chocolate and a mask for the upcoming flight. Also very comfortable seat, friendly crews during flight. One of the best flight !"

Pros: "JAL has always provided exceptional value for money and top notch service."
Cons: "Have taken several JAL flight the last 1 year and this flight was significantly worse than the last few. Especially the meals."

Pros: "No major disasters, comfortable seats, on time."

Pros: "Discipline and friendly tone of stewardesses... seats perfectably comfortable... organized and well done!!! I will fly japan airlines every time I fly in the future!"
Cons: "My wife did not particularly like your choices of breakfast... she just did not understand the food"

Pros: "Attendants appeared intolerant and impatient. Not the pleasant courteous crew flying into Japan."

Pros: "Everything. Was just outstanding."
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "service was excellent. Seating was OK in spite of it being economy."
Cons: "One meal was sufficient in quantity, mediocre in quality. Other meals and snacks were skimpy in frequency and quantity."

Pros: "The staff was attentive. The seats are comfortable. The in-flight entertainment is great!"
Cons: "The headphone jacks are temperamental. If I put the headphone jack all the way in the port it would only play in the right ear of my headphone. On my flight to Tokyo and on my flight home the same thing happened. You has to pull the headphone jack out slightly to get sound in both earbuds."

Pros: "The crew will treat you with respect even if you fly with economy class like myself Superb food Great movie selections Cheap wi-fi"
Cons: "I cannot find one thing I did not like"

Pros: "They did their best to put me pn another flight to Norfolk buf it wasn't straight through"
Cons: "Missing my last fight straight home because of very slow US Customs...)0"

Pros: "The airplane is clean, toilets are super nice! Service is very good, legroom is adequate. I like the rice dishes on board. Overall, excellent."

Pros: "Met a very nice Taiwanese sitting next to me. We spoke the entire trip."

Pros: "Seats are extremely comfortable even in economy. Service was attentive and very gracious. Both meals were above average for airline food. Made a 12 hour flight seem much shorter!"

Pros: "Very efficient boarding. Using two doors and a twin aisle plane made boarding very efficient despite the size of the plane and the number of people. Free WiFi worked surprisingly well - I was able to make a video call to my family. The plane was clean and tidy . Not really much more to say as it was a very short flight."
Cons: "No food offered, not even a biscuit, only very basic drink selection."

Cons: "Leg room"

Pros: "The flight attendants were so nice and gave a gift to my wife and I when they found out we were traveling for our anniversary! Everyone was so respectful and the food service was awesome. We even flew economy and had a great time!"

Pros: "leg space was better than with other companies"

Pros: "Crew members were very nice. All staff members definitely embodied the courteousness and professionalism of Japan. The house slippers were a nice touch and we really enjoyed the large movie selection. The miso soup with meals was great! Overall really enjoyed our flying experience with jal and would fly with them again."
Cons: "The food for our return flight from haneda to Honolulu was definitely subpar compared to the food we had on our first jal Honolulu to Hong Kong flight (layover in narita). Also the plane was not as big and older so we didn't have the touch screen. We were quite impressed on our Honolulu to Hong Kong flight, then were a little let down on our haneda to Honolulu flight."

Pros: "I wasn't interested in the meal which i would eat in airplane before i got on the plane. So, without any expectation i got the meal. It tasted good and the service after meal was also good. If i have a chance later, want to take air Japan again."

Pros: "The crew was very nice and pleasant. They were very accommodating as well."
Cons: "For my entire flight back I was so hot I could hardly stand it. I had to change my clothes and it still didn't help very much. My meals were also pretty bad on the way back, which is odd because they were not bad on the way there. It was definitely one of the worst flights that I've ever had, mostly because of the heat."

Pros: "Service and polite staff."
Cons: "Not much space between the seats for my long legs."

Pros: "I felt well taken care of the whole time. When checking my bag, the attendant saw that I have a middle seat, and got me an exit row window, which allowed me to sleep. They accommodated a last-minute request for vegetarian meals. The flight felt like it took about half the time it actually did."
Cons: "I couldn't check in online without a JAL account."

Cons: "Same"

Pros: "Boarding process; comfortable legroom on the Boeing 787; 1st meal was also excellent"
Cons: "2nd meal, some sort of a rice seafood mixture"

Pros: "The schedule was convenient to get to Tokyo quickly Check in was fast"
Cons: "The food was more "modest" than I'm used to, but my expectations aren't high"

Pros: "I was surprised that such a short flight was able to use the newest generation of the 737, the 800 series. While as cramped your typical 737, the seat backs are super thin to allow just that much extra leg room for my two-meter frame. As always, the cabin crew was lovely."

Pros: "The upgraded seating."

Pros: "excellent seat space and excellent in-flight service."

Pros: "Amazingly polite, smiling happy people. Respectful, it actually makes your day to deal with employees like this."
Cons: "Nothing. Was great."

Cons: "Our flight was cancelled and rebooked for 6 hours later. We did not get notification of this change. My gluten free meal was not on the flight that was changed. All the airline reps that I spoke with were very unhelpful."

Pros: "The aircraft was a new 787 and very comfortable. Uneventful flight."
Cons: "Menu in business class."

Pros: "Friendly quality staff, good aircraft."

Pros: "Friendly staff, new aircraft, great food"
Cons: "Just some help with hand luggage"

Cons: "The flight crew and gate crew were the rudest I have seen in my entire life. They acted as if they were too good to acknowledge passengers and ignored the flight attendant light and other efforts to get their attention to ask a question."

Pros: "Seats comfortable. Entertainment was extensive. Food was good!"
Cons: "Landing was rough!"

Cons: "Stuff not helpful, rude and not helping at all despite us being with a baby"

Pros: "All good."
Cons: "Actually, pretty all right, so no recommendations."

Pros: "The crew was on point and did there jobs well."
Cons: "The food was old fashioned and stuck in the 1960s. Having an option of Beef brisket or Salmon or two polarizing choices. I opted for the brisket and it was decent but not actually worth finishing. It was too fatty and strange tasting. Boarding in Sydney needs much improved screens and communication."

Pros: "Crew was super nice and accommodating. Entertainment was the best selection I’ve ever seen."
Cons: "It was impressive. Can’t yhink of anything."

Pros: "The service, food , amenities were all A +++"

Cons: "2 hour delay sitting in Bangkok airport due to sick passengers and their luggage getting off"

Pros: "Crew was friendly. Comfortable."

Pros: "Crew were more friendly from Dubai to Sydney than on other Emirates flights."
Cons: "Screaming kids for whole 14 hours!"

Cons: "Only one thing thaar I'd suggest as an improvements would be to provide water on a mores frequently basis"

Pros: "Information from the captain"
Cons: "Serving alcohol to someone who had consumed a lot, difficult for the crew to know though."

Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The flight certainly lived up to its reputation as being one of the nicest airlines to fly, even in being in economy. Great service, great food, great on board entertainment."
Cons: "There was an incident prior to take off where a passenger in first class had to be removed from the plane. Though it’s certainly not the airlines fault that there was an issue with a passenger, they should’ve been a lot more transparent and gave us a lot more information on what exactly was going on other then “we need to go back to a special area to get this passenger off.” Couple that with the security checks to “make sure there is nothing on the plane that shouldn’t be” and very little explanation of what actually occurred, it made for a very stressful flight. Not knowing if this passenger had made any kind of threat against the plane, or safety of other passengers... etc, it was very hard to feel safe for the remainder of my trip being left in the dark as the incident occurred in first class."

Pros: "The flight was incredibly comfortable, and Emirates reputation is well warranted. Service was impeccable and food was great. Seats were great, especially in business."
Cons: "Overall business class was great, however I didn’t like the placement of the remote at my left shoulder. I hit rabdom buttons a few times and it changed the channels and I would have to re-search for the movie I was watching. Everything else was absolutely perfect."

Pros: "Ease of checkin"
Cons: "Delayed take off Delayed baggage retrieval’s"

Pros: "Attention to detail Great Entertainment Excellent food Pilot updates on timing"
Cons: "Movie channels and music could be easier to use"

Pros: "This was operated by Qantas. Nice movie/music setup. Crew friendly"
Cons: "Food plentiful but meat was tough and pretty instututional in taste. Couldn’t eat but half of any meal"

Pros: "EVERYTHING"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Best airline so far for economy long haul flight, was emerites flight"
Cons: "No Arabs on board but everything in Arabic, no real issues. Would have been hard for my Thai girl to navigate on her own"

Cons: "The boarding gate space was quite small and there was no separate queue for business. So you literally had to push through people who were already in the queue to board as a business class. There was no space to go around."

Cons: "They didn’t have enough landing cards in English, the aircraft temperature inside was too cold, the staff didn’t close the curtains to the galley area and made noise and light while everyone is trying to sleep, our baggage came out last despite having priority tags and the boarding process from the lounge in Dubai with lifts was very combersome"

Pros: "Service is phenomenal, comfort of the seats and in flight entertainment was fab."
Cons: "Food was mediocre, but then again haven't ever had a wonderful meal on an aeroplane before!"

Pros: "Pretty uniforms and good service: Polite, gentle, helpful"

Pros: "They were on time and excellent service all the way. It couldn't have been better."

Pros: "I was impressed by the professionalism!"
Cons: "Chinese passengers passing gas!"

Pros: "The entertainment unit worked all good. The food was great."
Cons: "Flight got delayed. I can't say crews weren't kind but I was on another airline with much much kinder crews."

Pros: "The plane. The thoughtfulness of the crew. My seat's location. I was lucky to be in the front center! The flight information display. Flying at night across the Tasman Sea it was as though we were stationary (apart from a little vibration as we crossed the Southern Alps). Besides, the Air Bus is so quiet (comparatively). Oh yes. One other thing: the fare."
Cons: "We are vegetarians (not vegan). I wasn't keen on the chicken/fish option. But I didn't complain."

Cons: "The boarding process could be more organized and more smoothly."

Pros: "Food selection Wine not as good as usual"

Cons: "Headphone was taken by crew the moment plane landed."

Pros: "Great flight, very attentive staff, gluten free meal was not very good. At all"

Cons: "can't find anything to complain with"

Cons: "There wasn't anything about the flight to and from Sydney to New Zealand we didn't like."

Pros: "So comfy... Great service. Wished the flight was longer b"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Emirates is always excellent however the crew were not very engaging"

Pros: "La amabilidad de la tripulación, que sí el menú es completamente vegetariano. No como otras aerolíneas que te ponen manteca, leche para el café..."
Cons: "Todas las veces me cae muy, pero muy mal. Cuando llegó el momento del té o café, me dieron sal en vez de edulcorante. Demasiado condimento. No es comida para un vuelo, es difícil de digerir. Hasta produce síntomas de indigestión."

Cons: "We fid not enjoy the close proximity of several screaming children who insisted in screaming at all hoyrs, making sleep impossible. What was concerning was the reluctance of the staff to intervene. Most disappointing as we did not have any sleep at all overnight."

Cons: "Flight from Bangkok was delay and miss the connection flight."

Pros: "I had to change flights to LA."

Pros: "Snacks and the drinks are good. Boarding are pretty smooth."
Cons: "Dinner and breakfast are not too good. We waited for long period of time for the luggages."

Pros: "Boarding was efficient and the cabins were welll presented. Take off was on time."
Cons: "A very small glitch was the cabin service. The cabin announcements were read out too fast to follow! Also, the cabin crew seemed to be in a rush to move the food tray away even though I was still sipping my juice. Maybe this was the early morning energy ...Slow down, guys!"

Pros: "Staff helpful and friendly. We got there"
Cons: "It’s a small plane without much to offer"

Pros: "All of the staff are friendly and helpful and is a good flight."
Cons: "It was raining and I don't like to fly in the rain especially landing."

Pros: "Staff polite and friendly. Entertainment on my ipad with wants content great."

Pros: "quick on time flight"
Cons: "cabin VERY hot and cramped"

Pros: "IFE for such a short flight, headset free. Cabin crew were quite pleasant. B737-800 series (Next Gen.) is a nice plane."
Cons: "Cramped. Lunch was that revolting beef & kale pocket (again!). Highest a/f of Tiger, Virgin & QF, which is fine if it’s worth it, which it most definitely wasn’t."

Pros: "The staff did the best they could to accommodate everyone on a full flight in economy. The passenger in front of me had a failed entertainment system and the staff handled it very well."

Pros: "I always enjoy the flights that have the in-seat entertainment."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Crew were affable and courteous, even if not very attentive."

Pros: "Short flight . It's ok"
Cons: "Seat"

Pros: "The Staff were friendly during the whole flight. Seats were really comfortable and good movie and song choices. Boarding was fast."

Pros: "The new clear aircraft"
Cons: "The fruit was not ripe and not edible."

Cons: "2 hours late leaving"

Pros: "Everyone and everything"

Pros: "Overall, one of the best international flying experiences I have ever had."

Pros: "Everything went smoothly, cabin crew were friendly and helpful. Food was tasty, but portion rather small."
Cons: "Didn't like that every time someone nearby used the entertainment - watched a film I think, my film changed."

Pros: "Excellent service as always. Luggage was checked through to the final destination."
Cons: "The passenger next to me was too big to have the armrest down."

Pros: "It's Australian."
Cons: "Typical overnight flight."

Pros: "Crew were outstanding. Great service, attention to detail and simply better than I have experienced in the past 10+ years travelling Business. Well done!"

Pros: "Excellent service from counter to end of flight, well dine"

Cons: "Entertainment system on our section of the Qantas A330-200 had failed and was not operational for the entire trip. This meant no movies, no music, no safety video or announcements and no flight map for the entire journey of almost 8 hours. Crew were not very responsive to this and it seemed like a low priority vs everything else they were doing. After almost 2 hours and complaingpts from a number of the 24 passengers impacted, they did a "soft and hard reset" of the system which did nothing. Initially crew suggested they had an alternative (Tablets) but subsequently denied this. I felt they had already handed these out and did not hav enough. Having been the very first person to raise this issue (10 mins before the flight was to leave), I felt I should have been offered one, but clearly they did not do so. Altogether pretty disgusted with crew attitude and responsiveness. We also felt the food was of very poor quality too - it was too salty and what should have been crisp was soggy. We will NEVER fly Qantas again (even a code share)."

Pros: "Always organised"

Pros: "It was comfortable"
Cons: "I couldn't request a vegan meal online for some reason & once i got to the airport it was too late so i went hungry"

Cons: "Very cramped. Food was poor. Limited games choices in the entertainment."

Cons: "My name is Parag Mokashi, Indian Passport No. Z1788332 had booked 2 return air tickets from Singapore to Auckland with details as follows: Qantas Airways Flight QF6 - Depart Singapore Changi Apt, SG (SIN) 01Dec16 (Thu) 23:50 Arrive Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 02Dec16 (Fri) 10:50 Flight QF145 - Depart Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 02Dec16 (Fri) 11:55 Arrive Auckland International Apt, NZ (AKL) 02Dec16 (Fri) 17:10 Flight QF144 - Depart Auckland International Apt, NZ (AKL) 13Dec16 (Tue) 08:35 Arrive Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 13Dec16 (Tue) 10:15 Flight QF81 - Depart Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 13Dec16 (Tue) 11:15 Arrive Singapore Changi Apt, SG (SIN) 13Dec16 (Tue) 16:30 I had booked these tickets online through CheapTickets.sg on 17th September 2016. While booking the tickets mine and my wife’s full details such as the Name, Nationality and Passport were given. In spite of this nowhere was it mentioned in the Quantas terms and conditions or any prompt/popup given while booking the tickets that Australian transit visa is required for Indians since the flight is via Australian city. I had booked the tickets well in advance and had enough time to get transit visa had there been any information about it mentioned. On 1st December 2016 when we went to the Changi airport we were not allowed to board the plane as we did not have the Australian transit visa. We were told by Quantas personnel at the airport to go to the Australian embassy in Singapore to get the transit visa and that we would get it within a day. Next day we went to the embassy and found that the Australian visa is done by VFS global at a different address. When went there they informed us that Australian visa takes minimum 5 days. I had all my hotel bookings in New Zealand already done hence I had no choice to take a direct Singapore Auckland flight via Singapore Airlines at a very high price on the next day. I also lost one day of my hotel booking in Auckland and had to forfeit the money. I and my wife had to go through the psychological trauma of being refused to board the plane, then the next day running around the Australian embassy / VFS global office for trying to get the Australian transit visa and facing the uncertainty regarding our new Zealand trip which was planned well in advance for our 25th wedding anniversary"

Pros: "Crew was kind and helpful. Very clean and made sure we were able to sanitize and keep our area safe."

Pros: "Crew was exellent"

Cons: "The plane needs more bathrooms."

Cons: "I used 7900 points to upgrade to “comfort” and nothing about it was comfortable. I was squashed between a window and a large man and my tv screen kept flickering on and off. I actually felt like I had less space overall than I would have in a regular seat."

Pros: "Was upgraded to Comfort Plus after they had no seat for me on the plane"
Cons: "We booked with Virgin however flew with Delta and we were not alerted to this. We booked with Virgin for a reason. They also did not have seats for me when I went to check in on both flights and I had to negotiate seats before boarding. Very disappointing."

Pros: "The seat was very comfortable even as a basic seating and the entertainment options were great."
Cons: "The voice from the pilot was very loud and would be too much if I had my headphones on."

Cons: "Disembarking could be more efficient"

Cons: "Delayed 4 hours at LAX and even though we made it to the gate to fly out on our connecting flight they had given our tickets away and booked us on a flight 5 hrs later. They told us our bags would be transferred. They werent and now both my daughter and i are starting out a dream vacation with no l"

Pros: "The flight was on time. Airport personnel were courteous & efficient. Airplane was clean. Pilot was friendly. A passenger had a peanut allergy so Delta distributed almonds, instead. Nice. Overall, I like Delta."
Cons: "Leg room was just barely adequate. It was a small plane-nothing could be done about that."

Cons: "Not enough searband leg room"

Pros: "Food was ok."
Cons: "Flight attendants could have been a little more friendly and helpful."

Pros: "I don’t know what Delta could have done better on this two leg flight from Albuqueque to Miami via Atlanta . Yes we were in First Class and it was a (groan) 6:05 AM flight which meant that we were probably on time. But Delta’s 737-900 (to Atlanta) was very comfortable, the crew did everything well and the breakfast was quite good. (Make sure you try the quiche). We had the same crew on the next leg to Miam, who were surprised and gave us a warm welcome. There were only snacks in 1st for that short segment, but they were all we wanted."
Cons: "Air turbulence over the Midwest storms."

Pros: "The food that was served was good. The crew was attentive and nice ."

Cons: "Overall the flight was good. It would be nice to see if we are Lincoln and Wi-Fi and the greatest selection of movies to its offerings."

Pros: "spacious comfortable seats"
Cons: "I waited in line at Virgin Australia for 35 minutes only to be told that I was actually on a Delta flight even though my itinerary said Virgin Australia. good thing I was early to airport or I would of missed my flight because I had to go find Delta check in"

Cons: "My seat was in the last row on an MD88 where the engines are in the tail fin. Felt like I had a washing machine with a bag of rocks in it next to my head the whole flight. The intercom system also had a gnarly hum/screech when the attendants we're talking so you could barely hear them."

Pros: "Flight Attendant and great Boeing 737-800 was amazing"

Pros: "We traveled first class. Plane needs an update. Seats were not comfortable and did not work correctly. the crew had to continually pull the seat cushions up and reset the elec mechanism b"

Pros: "adjustable head rest is great - being given a pillow is great - the plane was not too cold to sleep either (as they often are)"

Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats that are far too close for tall peolle"

Pros: "nothing other than on time departure Ann's arrival"
Cons: "I specifically shopped carriers other than delta or united, tho my regret usa carriers have stopped offering comforts, service, quality food. Not sure how, but even though I bought virgin Australia ticket and flight, I ended up on delta. Terrible sitting, even though after I paid for tickets I was charged extra for more leg room and priority boarding, I got neither, they advertised free texts in flight, it didn't work either."

Pros: "Everything went smoothly."

Pros: "Requested a special meal over the phone when I checked in i.e. 24 hours before talk off, customer support confirmed my request but the crew told me that they had not received anything as such....crew didn't even bothered to offer any alternative. I was fine, didn't have any reservations but my wife and kid went starving all the way remember it was a 15 hour flight"
Cons: "Hospitality"

Pros: "Crew was excellent. Food above average. Plenty of entertainment options."
Cons: "Delta is not the only airline to have planes with the new seat configurations in First Class but they are a big disappointment for tall passengers and couples who enjoy traveling together and cannot even carry on a comfortable conversation on a 15-hour flight."

Pros: "The in flight entertainment and the pilot being informative about what was going wrong at the Atlanta airport."
Cons: "The insane process that followed the flight of rebooking - it would have been VERY HELPFUL to have access to the inflight internet so that I could have rebooked my missed connection before we landed in the ATL airport where it was past midnight and there were hardly any staff available for us to talk to and the lines to speak to anyone took literal HOURS to get through."

Pros: "Crew were lovely, boarding wasn't too painful."
Cons: "Payed extra for a seat that was the seat I selected. Totally disappointed"

Pros: "Crew was stellar, very accommodating."
Cons: "Food was WAAAAY to salty. Needs some more flavor than just salt sad to say. Would be nice to be offered an entire can of soda not just a cup full of ice and a tiny amount of liquid. Charging for exit row swats? Cmon.... I'm 6 foot 5, why should a 5 foot 115lb woman get all the extra leg room but I canot?"

Pros: "We travelled Economy comfort which has extra leg room & recline, which is great for a long flight such as this. Food was ok, crew were great & there was a lot of good entertainment to watch? A nice smooth ride down to Sydney."
Cons: "Food wasn't so great & coffee as with most Airlines is terrible."

Pros: "Flight itself was mostly fine. Adequate overhead space. Boarding process ok."
Cons: "Adequate legroom but seat space so tight could not even reach things dropped on the floor. Seats are HARD! Some USB sockets didn't work. Entertainment system is old and clunky, often didn't respond to touches. Crew was grudgingly OK, didn't seem to want to be there to help. Food was a disaster. Special meals were all wrong. Food brought was mostly terrible."

Pros: "We had originally booked seats that were not together but we're able to change them at the gate. We sat in the last row of the 777 which only had 2 seats on either side of the plane rather than the standard 3. The seats still reclined tho not as much as the other rows. Food was free and excellent- so was the entertainment (I watched 4 movies on the 14 hour flight). Crew was great. Alcoholic beverages were also free but we don't drink so it didn't matter."
Cons: "The flight from phx to lax was ok but it was a small plane (CRJ700) and we're big people. No amenities whatsoever except for soft drinks, juices and peanuts. Flight was on time and made the connection with time to spare."

Pros: "Well after going through a terrible storm to get to the airport we were given a opportunity to up grade to First Class for a very reasonable rate. That was great."

Pros: "Row 19 on a 737ER is great for room, as long as you don't plan on reclining (I rarely do in a daytime flight)"
Cons: "A little overcautious regarding seating the cabin crew because of possible turbulence, but better safe than sorry, I suppose. However, it is a common occurrence on this particular leg, so don't board knowing you might need to take a "break" before you get to Atlanta."

Cons: "Reasonable price"

Pros: "The Crew, very nice."
Cons: "Delta air had delayed flight which made my family and I miss our flight in Sydney to Cairns."

Cons: "Enjoyed it very much. Great crew and clean plane!!"

Pros: "Plane was nice, seats were very comfortable and staff were very friendly and attentive."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic"

Cons: "Very happy traveller"

Pros: "Super comfortable n lovely crew"
Cons: "All good"

Pros: "The crew had a good attitude for the flight."

Cons: "Movie selection"

Cons: "The food !"

Pros: "Nice crew"

Cons: "Slow."

Pros: "Friendly efficient crew. Clean modern Airbus aircraft and no delays."
Cons: "Food was limited and not great."

Pros: "Economy seats were slightly better than most, but the configuration of the 2 seats was good 2 of us to have our own area. Food was good and unexpected for a 3 hr flight."

Pros: "Great hospitality"
Cons: "Food was mediocre"

Pros: "As above"
Cons: "Breakfast was pretty average"

Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful. Comfortable flight considering it was a small aircraft."

Pros: "Nothing. I felt they were racist. Not only were we not able to board the plane early with our Baby based on Veronica denying our request request I notice the female crew would acknowledge the other Babies and never noticed our African American Baby."
Cons: "The food and he service was awful."

Pros: "All service on board was great"
Cons: "Nil"

Pros: "the crew always smiling."

Cons: "sitting in a plane at Sydney airport for three hours waiting for a part,for the plane was not much fun.But we still got to Apia that day,or maybe late but before 12 midnight was a very long day."

Pros: "Staff were friendly."
Cons: "Staff could have had more control.of boarding process. Pax just swarmed the boarding line."

Pros: "Quick boarding."
Cons: "This was an older plane than the one from Sydney. No seat back unit. IFE was old screens that drop from the overhead. 2nd show was cut off mid stream due to landing. Seat uncomfortable and showing their age. Full flight so very crowded."

Cons: "The flight was cancelled which ruined the trip for myself and seven friends."

Cons: "The food,rude staf ,small and uncomfortable seats,outdated entertainment system. A staff member had the nerve to tell me to let a first class customer go before me to the restroom (although I was in line to use my assigned restroom) because “he was first class and his assigned restroom was occupied.“"

Pros: "Friendly staff, good food, comfortable ride."

Pros: "4 seats to myself"
Cons: "Being woken up 2 hrs before landing"

Pros: "Except entertainment and comfort i did not like an thing else."
Cons: "Very bad food for those who are strict veterinarian and even don't eat onion, garlic, mushroom because their religion dose not allow. very bad for one who is going to LA and allow only one hand carry even all other airlines allow one hand carry and one computer bag."

Pros: "I like the friendly service, the food is good and.they are very accommodating"
Cons: "The air conditioning is quite extensive so it is rather freezing. And the boarding seems very disorganized"

Pros: "Genuine, warm and welcoming crew. Clean and spacious cabin. Very tasty vegetarian breakfast."

Pros: "The boarding and service by the staff was very good. We had a most comfortable flight to Sydney on FJ911 leaving very promptly. We were given a Sydney newspaper which I appreciated to catch up on news."
Cons: "We were very disappointed in the breakfast and ate little of it. The scrambled egg didn't taste convincing. There were stale potato wedges - luke warm, the sausage resembled devon . The yogurt, muffin and juice were OK. My 2 cups of tea were VERY GOOD. The flight was very COLD. After being in tropical Fiji particularly noticeable ."

Pros: "free food and wine and beer"
Cons: "Entertainment was poor with old screens coming down from the ceiling. No choice of movies."

Cons: "The plane is old and the only entertainment was a screen overhead not easy to see. Hard to keep the children occupied. A family of 4 cannot all sit together as the configuration is 3 & 3."

Pros: "The plane interior is decent & clean for the most part."
Cons: "I had to call Fiji airways 10 times and explain the situation to 10 different people, got hung up on 7 times, & no one ever called me back to resolve the issue. I ended up having to pay $100 to change a flight because of their cancellation... Flight attendants were bossy and rude. One blew a whistle at a passenger when they got up to use the bathroom after we landed."

Pros: "Lots of legroom. Clean, new plan. Friendly qnd efficient crew."

Pros: "Service was excellent."
Cons: "The entertainment consoles for the whole middle section went out and even a reboot could not correct the problem. No one with expertise to troubleshoot the problem."
