Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "On time would be better."
Cons: "This time Singapore Airlines Staff seem to be not so helpful. Previously they were happy to help with smiling face and approachable immediately. This time in spite of asking for help in the cabin no one turned up even after multiple requests. I could only get help when someone one walks next to me."
Pros: "Newer Aircraft and very convenient"
Cons: "I dont see any thing to improve"
Pros: "Crew will do anything to help"
Cons: "I was on a nut free diet However they still gave me a ice cream covered in macadamia nuts. Nut free meals were also gluten, vegan etc so very bland"
Cons: "crew isnt very careful in serving the food but its not really that bad. but im just comparing it from my previous flights so i think that group of FA's can do better. And the food was served a bit a late so they dont have time to serve hot beverage anymore."
Cons: "I recomended yo my friend"
Pros: "Average flight"
Cons: "Seats on this aircraft have very upright seats. Not very comfy"
Cons: "No complain . It’s singapore airlines and not dirty air India or jet Airways"
Pros: "I like all"
Cons: "Softer seats and more movies"
Pros: "Friendly crew and spacious."
Cons: "Food could be better"
Pros: "Overall good"
Cons: "Boarding needs better management."
Pros: "Nothing beats Singapore SQ!"
Pros: "Basics are covered. TV screen is big but otherwise nothing special."
Cons: "It is so annoying they want you to pay an extra $20 to pre book any seat. If you need the extra $20 that much, charge me in the original fare! Don't nickel and dime me. At check in they couldn't even get my child seated beside me although a change was made last minute at the gate. Every other airline I've flown recently was better. Sri Lankan and Emirates FAR better service."
Cons: "Ran out of options for dinner and could not eat the macaroni cheese they had on offer, so got 2 small packets of nuts instead...international flight running out of food options? Pretty slack. A part of the interior wall fell off onto my foot upon take off and I had to hold it in place for a while until a hostess came....doesn’t give you the best feeling when the plane starts breaking on take off. One of the male stewards was appalling towards a young mum I sat next too...too the extent of giving her dirty looks because she spilled a bit of water on the seat and then told her she had to pack everything away she was using, including the baby wipes! I stepped in and told him how this was not ok and all other staff members were helpful and he was making this Mum upset. He should not be working for such a people friendly reputable airline! Maybe Jetstar instead! Was appalled at the entire flight to be honest!"
Pros: "Food, service"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew. Efficient service and good boarding. Seemingly wider seats than the newer A350s."
Cons: "Positively ancient entertainment system with poor selection and bad visual quality. Ads pop up every time you go into another menu. If you're flying SIN->BNE I'd avoid the 7.20am departure, you'll get the old 777-200s rather than the A350s they run on other departures."
Pros: "Great service."
Cons: "Disinfectant smell."
Pros: "Seats more comfortable than premium economy, staff more helpful!"
Cons: "Food was ordinary"
Cons: "Outdated Cabin Fit Out"
Cons: "Some staff not courteous which surprised me"

Pros: "Natalie is a friendly cheery diligent flight attendant who needs special mention. (Sigapore to Brusane fight 6.1.18)"
Pros: "Was very old plane but was good"
Cons: "Food and crew was well"
Cons: "Crew was very poor in responding to any requests. I am usually very quite and light on demands as i hardly hit call button on the seat to get any assistance, but during meal, I was asked about drink and I opted for Ginger ale. Crew said, she will get back to me and I did not hear from her for another 10 mins, then there was repeat serve of drinks and I was asked if i needed any thing and asked the same drink, but then I was asked to wait. After I had finished off my meal and ready to go to sleep, someone was bringing my drink out and I then respectfully say no to it as it was bit late after the meal and asked for water instead and did not like the look on the face of the crew member. I saw it happening with other passengers as well and was under the impression, the whole crew performance was pretty poor and SIA was not up to its high-standards as I always like to fly with them. I will look for different option next time"
Cons: "The seats and entertainment system on our flight were in need of an upgrade. The seat padding was well worn and uncomfortable. The entertainment system is one of the old “pop-out the remote from the armrest” ones with a very average interface and display."
Pros: "Personal Touch!"
Cons: "No such!"
Pros: "Sound sleep"
Pros: "The staff were helpful, once I had complained enough."
Cons: "Aircraft was old, tired, and uncomfortable. The seat of my chair was not attached. There were huge comms boxes below every 2nd seat so zero legroom. Screens were so old they were unwatchable and tiny. Air Asia provides a superior service for a fraction of the price."
Cons: "Headphones were not functioning properly"
Pros: "Singapore service is always outstanding"
Cons: "temp on plane was freezing and even two blankets did not suffice. Everyone was really cold."
Pros: "Second bag was four foot bronze statue, no problem or extra cost"
Pros: "everything, excellent job"
Cons: "Crew rarely walked aisles with water. Gluten free meal was mediocre. Seat was old and uncomfortable. Entertainment options were mediocre."
Cons: "cramped uncomfortable seats freezing cold"
Pros: "For as long 14 hour journey they sure make it comfortable."
Cons: "The food was very poor indeed, the entertainment system was not working in my seat or the seat behind, I had to move to another seat"
Pros: "Did not enjoy the vegetarian menu -cold noodles not appealing. Alcoholic drinks very hard to obtain .. orders taken but not received. Service was friendly though"
Pros: "Changed by very helpful ground staff from lousy seats to exit row at no cost."
Cons: "Entertainment interface showing its age."
Pros: "The ground staff in Sydney!"
Cons: "From the moment we checked in in Singapore there was no service. Having travelled first class and Economy before with Singapore I was very disappointed with Business class. My husband and daughter were in First Class. The service was below average to say the least - more training required from check in to on board - (in Sydney the staff on the ground went above and beyond) In Singapore it was very fake and contained no sincerity. The lounge itself was also ordinary compared to others, no Amenity kits or PJs in business class - even Virgin Australia has that! I was so excited to be travelling Singapore again given past experiences but now Im not sure I will want to fly them again."
Pros: "I am still trying to find my bags. I missed my connection and Jet Blue made me stand in a line to get rebooked for 7 hours. Unprofessional, uncaring. None of this was my fault but everyone who represents Jet Blue treated me as if it were. Never again"
Cons: "The video screens need to be upgraded"
Cons: "Same food options as previous flight Not as many movie options as the longer flight"
Cons: "old facilities"
Pros: "Good crew, but working with some tired, old equipment."
Cons: "The padding in my seat seemed to be a bit thin and became progressively more uncomfortable as the flight progressed. The in-flight entertainment systems are really showing some wear & tear. The screen was blurry, the letters on the control buttons had work off and the sound quality was terrible."
Pros: "We love travelling Singapore Airlines and always try to travel with them if we can"
Pros: "Flight perfectly on time. Crew not too friendly (Chinese style), but attentive and helpful."
Cons: "On this B777-300, the large Economy Premium is not quite up to the standard of other airlines flying the same model. The tray table, stored in the arm-rest on all rows, is tiny, and opens only a few inches, not enough for pregnant women or gentlemen with some mid-section padding. I could not use it at all, and had to balance my meals on my knees. Besides, when the passenger in front reclines his/her seat, the seat invades totally the space of the passenger in the back. I felt the passenger was resting on my lap. Forget using a laptop, or even reading a book: just watch your screen, a couple inches from your nose. Good for short-sighted people only! I tried EVA and was disappointed. I'll go back to my preferred airline, Vietnam Airlines."
Pros: "Crew and seat."
Cons: "Larger seat."
Pros: "Crew was amazing. Plane was incredibly clean, including bathrooms. Pilots flew smoothly."

Cons: "Food was cold - maybe can do room temperature but happy they feed you."
Pros: "I got there. Seemed like no one cared about doing a good job"
Cons: "Really should tell passengers that you are having problems due to weather. Should avoid buses just an annoying flight"

Cons: "I traveled with EVA in March and October and ate the same snack in both trips."
Pros: "Air craft was new, seats were wider. More comfortable. Flight attendant provided me with a pillow, even when I wasn't in first class."
Cons: "Food was absolutely terrible. Too Taiwanese for my taste, not all of us like asian versions of things. Boarding was late, AS ALWAYS"
Pros: "Eva air is all about comfort, even if you use economy class. Right on schedule, staff is very accomidating, attentive and professional no matter where in the world you are. Flight meals are delicious... I had the best experiencie in flying with Eva air. Highly recommended."

Cons: "Food and drinks were not good at all and not enough"
Pros: "Crew is very professional and helpful. Really love the international movie selection. Food is good."
Cons: "They just seem overworked and perhaps that is why they don't smile as much as I would expect. I wished there is a way to be more environmental with the plastic cups. Perhaps give everybody a re-useable cup in the beginning and we keep it throughout the flight. By the end of the flight, each person wasted at least 8-10 cups. That is a lot of waste."
Pros: "crew try to be helpful warm food and drink always available. taipei airport pretty clean and spacious."
Cons: "hong kong airport provides free wi-fi. no free wi-fi in taipei airport. no clock anywhere in waiting area or in corridor. no weather announcement in Taipei airport before connecting flight even when typhoons were approaching. movie choice was quite limited for long flights."
Pros: "For an economy flight, provided you're seated on an aisle, this is probably one of the more affordable luxury options."
Cons: "Chose emergency exit on Cathay 777-300. Terrible.. was squished like a sardine! And I was in window seat... was not even able to eat! Worst economy class I have been in years!!! Never again...."
Cons: "Sitting place too small"

Pros: "Changi. Wow.."
Cons: "Aircraft rather not modern."
Pros: "Very disappointed in the service provided"
Cons: "Contact the customer for flight changes instead of doing it automatically for the customer. I woke up to text messages letting me know my flight was changed from 0635 to 2135. I had major plans for the next few days and couldn’t afford to take that risk."
Pros: "The luggage space was good."
Pros: "seat and flight were great , smooth ride as well"

Pros: "Everything’s was fine."

Pros: "One of the nicest crews I've had the pleasure of flying with"
Cons: "Nothing I could tell at the moment....."
Pros: "Crew on leg from Melbourne to Hong Kong terrible - Hong Kong to Boston good"
Cons: "Put a Priority tag on our luggage; Have the Pasta meal for someone sitting in the second row of Premium Economy and then let me eat the economy meal that you substituted instead of interrupting me four times to give me the Premium Economy meal that you said you didn't have. Use a plane other than th"
Cons: "Flight delayed out of Singapore. Airline should have at least notified earlier so passengers can arrive later to the airport Cabin crew on board rude ‘sorry i’m too busy now’ [just asking for a glass of water] Plane then sitting at HK airport waiting for open gate Arrival timed just perfectly to prevent passengers from catching the last airport express train"
Pros: "Boarding quick n fast"
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable, leg n body, space too small n my left seat is a big sizes man , right seat is a very fat man , I can’t even move . my seat don’t have headset n request one , but until reached Hong Kong I still didn’t get it n I m in plane for 4hrs doing nothing, no games no songs n no shows. Thank for your concern . Really appreciate."
Cons: "seat cushion for the back is too hard."
Cons: "Nice flight nice"
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: "Was able to redirect from Kansai to Umeda after typhoon. Initially received misinformation though. Service was great except the one time I received a regular, not diet, coke and still had to drink it. Great job Cathay Pacific!"
Cons: "Flight delayed as always"
Pros: "- Good food - Good choice of entertainment - Comfortable seats - Polite staff & well organized"
Pros: "I am a wheelchair user and Cathay Pacific took excellent care of me"
Pros: "The new plane"
Cons: "Incoming plane was late so that there off departure schedule. Flight to HK was late as well. Bad luck or bad scheduling?"
Pros: "The plane was great Boeing 350 I think great entertainment system, comfortable seats, and the Singapore new terminal 4 is wounderful"
Pros: "I enjoyed the good check in service, and the excellent lounges. As always, the overall level of service on Cathay was good."
Cons: "The utterly appalling seats on Cathay's old B777s are unacceptable for a premium airline. Non-reclining economy seats which are desperately uncomfortable for any flight of more than 1 hour, and completely unsuitable for an overnight flight. These planes desperately need a refit. Best avoided until this has been completed. The flight was overbooked, and the cabin crew seemed stressed and very busy. As a long term frequent flyer with CX, this was a very disappointing experience."
Cons: "3h delay on the way in 1h delay on the way back"
Pros: "Food and drinks, service of the crews."
Cons: "Flight delay of 20 mins."
Pros: "Cathay Pacific were great slight delay in Singapore due to incoming flight. A350 plane wonderful quiet and decent space in economy. Food and entertainment was good and well time food serving."

Pros: "Efficiency of Operations, efficiency of service and attitude to pleasing customers, great choice of movies, excellent aircraft"
Cons: "For two hours flight food was adequate"
Pros: "Newer plane"
Cons: "6,5 hrs delayed"
Pros: "I did get an upgrade and saw a pleasant movie"
Cons: "There were no immigration forms on board. When I asked for one, the hostess said there had been an announcent Mayybe there was one in mandarin but certainly not in english. A senior hostess cam later to apologize zaying the reason was that there were new forns since 1 Dec when leaving the plane, everyone was given old forms! All very unptofessional..."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and the flight was comfortable. There were two service representatives to take me on the golf cart from my gate in Terminal 1 when I landed to the bus departing from Terminal 2 to Terminal 4 where my connection was. It was unexpected, but saved a lot of stress based on the distance I had to travel within the airport to make the connecting flight."
Cons: "They recently moved the Cathay Pacific flights to the new Terminal 4 in Changi in Singapore. The connecting distance was significant to get from the Terminal 1 gate to the bus leaving from Terminal 2 to get to Terminal 4. Changi is usually VERY efficient, but this was a real inconvenience to not have direct transport from T1 to T4. Also, the lines for Cathay are not properly sorted by First/Business and all status frequent flyers. There were no ropes or anything organizing the queue, so there were well over 150 people lined up for the priority boarding with no clear queue. At that point, there is no priority. Time to get better organized."
Pros: "Comfortable seats - good entertainment"
Cons: "4-5 minutes of commercials before being able to watch the movie on the plane."
Pros: "super comfortable seats, complete amenities (pillows, blankets, TV and a plug to charge your devices). flights are also on time and the food is great! I've been flying through budget airlines until now; although I flew economy with Cathay, the flight experience felt very premium."
Pros: "Flight personnel go out of there way to smile and make you feel wanted on this flight and the previous flight enroute to Singapore from Hong Kong. Food was OK, too."
Pros: "Most crew very helpful. Great movie and music selection."
Cons: "Middle row every time and difficult to get out.(economy). Out of the Asian meal again for people in the back of the plane. Was unable to check in on line for some reason, but taken care of at airport."
Pros: "The movie"
Cons: "More than 1 hr delay. I had ordered kosher food. They came to show it but it never appeared later. I complained and they broight it: the starter was frozen solid. Eventually i had a fish plate. Not too bad..."
Pros: "Very enjoyable flight. Plenty of legroom in the bulk seating. Service was very good and food was OK."
Cons: "Seats in economy are not that thick therefore not comfortable to sit for a long time."
Pros: "Upgraded to business class 2 twice. Great service and caring staff"
Pros: "Unfortunately nothing positive to write"
Cons: "Disappointing service, poor upkeep of planes, not at all punctual (travelled multiple legs with Cathay, not one of them took off on time). Bad airline, getting worse"
Cons: "The one issue I had was that the crew members did not come around with drinks aside from during meal times. This is a 15+ hour flight, and people got so thirsty that a line of people went to the kitchen themselves to get water."
Pros: "Midnight flight, so did not request anything. Normal."
Cons: "Was informed flight delay after we've reached airport for check in. Which is 1 1/2 earlier from departure time. Should have inform earlier. New scheduled time 2.05am, but can only board at 2.10am, so flight timing delayed beyond 2.05am."
Pros: "The food and service"
Pros: "Went up and down as planned."
Cons: "Late departure due to storms results in late arrival. Seat didn't work as expected. USB charger didn't work and interfered with the headset."
Cons: "Those economy seats can only fit a child comfortably."
Pros: "Crew/staff very professional,"
Pros: "Boarding and security is very efficient at Changi - other airports should take note."
Pros: "Plenty of leg room, comfortable seats, and great service on the plane!"
Pros: "Reboot shut my system down for a bit. Rebooting restored ok"
Cons: "30 passengers on a 60 seat plane. We should have been spaced out due to the Coronavirus, but NO. We reallocated seats which had us all jammed up the front and back with rows of empty seats in between. Not good enough Qantas! I asked to change and the cery pleasant hostess said no we were NOT allowed. I do NOT understand this."
Cons: "Way cramped"
Pros: "Window seat on my own. Landed early."
Cons: "Direct flight to Melbourne."
Cons: "Qantas is always delayed leaving"
Pros: "The staff are always so friendly, and even though we had to return to the airport due to a plane fault, the airline handled things very well. Loved free wifi"
Cons: "Qantas’ fleet is a bit sad and aged and needs to be a little bit more modern. I don’t think I’d chose to fly qantas if I had the choice... boarding is weird, almost half the plane has “priority” boarding and they board everyone together so there’s honestly no perk to being a premium airline member"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No inflight entertainment available."
Cons: "Always a pleasure to fly with qantas"
Cons: "The seats were too narrow and uncomfortable"
Pros: "The braised beef dinner was excellent, the crew were really helpful and the entertainment good. Arrived early as well.Qantas seems to have great pilots as very little in the way of bumpiness on landing. So well done guys."

Pros: "The service was really good"
Cons: "My bag was broken when it came off the plane so I wasn’t happy about that."
Pros: "Service fantastic"
Cons: "Food was a bit ordinary but on a short flight understandable"
Pros: "We eventually got to our destination safely although very stressed"
Cons: "The plane from Sydney to Brisbane was awful. The section where we were seated had a permanent cover over the windows, ours and others near us, over a large section. This was really claustrophobic. It was like being in a closed in tin can. It should be disclosed that the window seat is not a window seat so you have the option to change to somewhere else. The seats are really quite cramped. A huge delay"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Boarding was very efficient and on time - flight was exceptionally smooth and arrival in Brisbane was 45 minutes early - keep up yjr good schedule"
Cons: "Not much to mention at this point - all good"
Pros: "Qantas staff unfailingly helpful and courteous."
Cons: "A more suitable lunch that could be eaten more easily , the quiche in a fidley box and nothing to w eat it on was trying."
Pros: "Helpful staff, well informed"
Cons: "My family of 4 were not seated together even though all four tickets were purchased together in the same booking. After booking through KAYAK for flights, the on-line check-in process was a nightmare with the KAYAK booking number not matching the information required by QANTAS. As my children were all spread over the plane, and two son's look very similar, a hostess almost did not serve one of my son's a meal as she believed my son had already received a meal further forward in the plane. Thankfully, upon checking, the hostess realised that it was a case of mistaken identity."
Pros: "Pillow and blanket made the trip much for comfortable"
Cons: "There was no entertainment on board. There was provision for iPads in the backs of the seat, but none provided. There were drop down TVs but the audio was not working. Had I known in advance that this would be the case, I would have been able to prepare my own device and headphones."
Pros: "Complimentary Inflight drink and the effort from crew to accommodate English second language passengers in my row."
Cons: "I could not eat the food"
Pros: "Entertainment for the kids Healthy food The crew were great and interactive"
Cons: "Too much pressure for the ears"
Cons: "Qantas mucked up my seating and then tried to tell me maybe it was just my use of the booking system."
Pros: "Everything was great - arrived early. Excellent service."
Pros: "Overall good flight and staff nice and friendly"
Cons: "Nothing comes,to mind"
Pros: "Great entertainment and new release movies. Food was great"
Cons: "The man in front kept jamming his chair into my knees just so he could get back as far as he could, despite the only thing stopping this was my actual legs, when I tried to explain that he got a little abusive. Iv got got some light bruising on my right knee. Food was better then expected and am happy to fly Qantas again"
Cons: "Food, I cannot get an option to have a Cheese platter. The food has been prepared too far in advance and is tasteless and full or preservatives."
Cons: "The dinner meal was dried and pretty disappointing as was the media selection in coach vlass"
Pros: "Thank you Qantas I enjoyed the flight, the service was excellent. Cabin crews were friendly. Overall excellent."
Cons: "There is nothing that I dislike."
Pros: "Business class seats are private and allow for lay flat sleeping"
Cons: "Would have prefered to fly Emirates."
Cons: "I was not able to board the plane and was told that I needed to apply for ETA. I did and was not able to do it online. Then I needed to call the embassy about a required visa as a visitor. None of this was presented before. I have not traveled to Australia before, so I had no idea this needed to be done. As of now I am still at home trying to find a solution to this requirement."
Pros: "Helpful service and comfortable seats"
Pros: "Comfortable plane. Good entertainment. Very nice chicken salad. Friendly staff."
Cons: "The soggy pies were a bit, well, soggy ... The changeover at Dubai seemed unnecessary. Having to go through security tho get from airside to airside was a bit daft. The crew gave little information on how that changeover was going to happen, and when they did it was just before landing."
Pros: "Snack and Qantas Entertainment app"
Pros: "The no fuss but highly professional approach of the cabin crew. The level of comfort in the cabin, with a business class upgrade."
Cons: "I dont like having to track the distance through the outside lounge in both directions to get to the Business Lounge. The Business Lounge is frequently busy and noisy. Very hard to conduct a phone conversation from."
Cons: "Flight delayed for 8 hours. Flight was to leave at 6.20am but left at 2.30pm. My whole day wasted. Very trying and begin in the airport at 4.00am for reporting and this happens.."
Pros: "Everything on time."
Pros: "I didn't ask for any upgrades, but the ground crew were attentive enough to offer me a direct flight back which was 30 minutes earlier. Everything was perfect. Food, seats, entertainment. Can't complain about anything."
Cons: "Not much of a biggie, but one of the middle aged lady flight attendant was a little rude. Perhaps had a bad passenger before serving me."
Pros: "Close to two hours delay leaving Australia"
Pros: "Staff friendly. Dinner served on flight. Unexpected but welcomed and delicious. Arrived on time. Thank you Qantas (((:"
Pros: "The Singapore Qantas lounge is well set up, despite one or two small issues. Boarding was easy after the usual Singapore gate lounge procedures. On board the crew (led by Brigita) could not have been better. I LOVE the 1 -2 - 1 business configuration. Meals and refreshments on board were just great and I enjoyed that the crew didn't disturb me (Emirates are particularly rude in this regard) when it was clear I was sleeping until descent."
Cons: "Qantas, being an Australian airline, I am clueless as to why, in the airline lounge: Australian Sauvignon Blancs are not available (NZ phewee!) Bundaberg Rum (Ozzie icon) is not available. For a major hub, it is also not clear why a separate business lounge doesn't operate."
Cons: "Boarding was terrible. No announcement when it was late."
Cons: "Small plane and short flight so given a small snack but no entertainment."

Pros: "Like the staff -so down to earth Australian -no airs and graces like some other airlines. No fuss service. Always very helpful.You actually get food and drinks gratis on Qantas! The craft are always clean and well maintained. Easy to check in on line too. Offered in flight entertainment but didn't require it."
Cons: "We boarded a bit late -so there was a bit of waiting around without being advised of what was happening. But we figured when we saw a man in a wheel-chair being helped on before everyone else that -that was the issue. So happy to wait."

Cons: "Food was good"
Cons: "- The check-in counters opened at least 30 minutes late. The agents arrived late, they seemed to be having a good time and didn't feel the need to explain the reason for the delay nor apologize for it. - On my flight to Manila from Los Angeles, I did not check in any luggage. I had a carry-on and a backpack that fit perfectly well into the overhead bins and underneath the front seat. On my flight from Manila to Los Angeles, I was not allowed to take the same set on board because the total weight exceeded 7 kg. This put me in a bind because the heaviest item I had was my small LCD monitor which was in my backpack. I had to put it into the carry-on with wheels which I had to be checked-in. I would have prepared to carry it in my backpack because it is a fragile item. When I was told to sign a document that absolves the carrier of any liability for the checked-in luggage and I refused, the China Airlines Duty Officer in Manila informed me that unless I sign the document, my luggage will not be loaded on the plane. I felt extremely frustrated by the attitude of the Duty Officer who didn't hesitate to threaten me and insisted that the rule was imposed on them by the TSA in the US. Instead of helping me work out a solution to the difficulty I was facing, he simply walked away with a dismissive attitude."
Pros: "Quite comfortable, met my expectations and I slept well. On board team were friendly and helpful."

Pros: "Boarding was organized by zones. Pretty smooth and quick."
Cons: "Having to checkin a carry on that was supposedly bulky when a) many people had backpacks at the same time as a hard case carry-on and b) this was the same carryon my son had on the outbound. Supposedly, FAA is more strict going into the US. The supervisors in the Manila-Taipei (10:45AM Jan 3, CI702) were very petty and inconsistent. The laptop backpack and carryon bag were already weighed and they demanded to re-weigh them."

Leg space could be a little bit better. Non adjustable headrest (height wise). Poor boarding procedures at manila but that's a given"

Pros: "Lot of food, good entertainment selections, friendly"
Cons: "Did not appreciate the Delayson the flights, and this is annoying that you are making me type a certain amount of characters for a review"
Cons: "Originating flight in Manila to Taipei to connect to our SFO flight was cancelled late in Manila due to 'technical' issues (waiting in terminal, 4 hours past scheduled departure, which meant missing our connection to SFO), and the ensuing parade through having to stay in Manila overnight (on CA's dime, plus food), then rushed back to the airport the following morning (very short notice), then to have to wait again as CA figured out how to get a previously scheduled flight into the flight plan management systems, and obviously without a proper method to coordinate this sort of thing - ultimately all of this lack of 'control' over their situation, lead to a feeling that China Airlines does not know how to contend with interruptions, or how to make their customers feel informed so that they may be more understanding. In the future - flying Eva - even though this was the first ever event of this type I have had flying China Airlines. Eva provided both meal vouchers and boxes of candy to each and every customer affected while we awaited our flights to our final destinations. CA was silent - and also very absent when we arrived in SFO and went to collect our baggage - again Eva being the party taking action and responsibility to help us get our bags, with 1 of 3 damaged by CA handlers). Bad image CA, bad image."
