Please update your meals plan for hindu nv. Also, I wish I had a foot rest for my feet. Great seat spacing/leg room.

Pushed to check in carry on bags when overhead compartments had enough space. Very poor food and staff on Singapore to India flight.

More healthy food options.

Pros: "We had to come home 2 weeks early due to the virus, and Singapore airlines were brilliant at changing the flights. Even got upgraded to the extra leg room for free"
Cons: "The extra leg room seats were naff, I like getting comfy in a chair and these ones were not. The screen was too far away and the arm rests didn’t move. Also, due to my partner having to swap seats, I was sat on my own next to strangers. They slept the whole way, so the crew never disturbed them meaning I missed out on food and drinks, even when asked"
Pros: "Great Premium Economy experience with comfortable seats and extremely-hospitable cabin crew!"
Cons: "Archaic In-Flight Wi-Fi Plans should be brought to modern-age plans."
Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "In this fairly new plane, the rows of seats are so close together, the leg room is minimal. When the tray is lowered, you feel completely squashed in the seat. The food trays are not picked up quickly after eating."
Pros: "Flat bed is wide and comfortable. Cabin crew was excellent."
Cons: "Flight was a little warm but was able to get it cooler via help from crew but got warmer again towards the end of flight. Overall good flight though"
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Pros: "Good food. Friendly staff efficient airports."
Cons: "Confusion at check in on baggage constrains. Conflict between what the agent told us and what was documented on our ticket contract. Plane very cold Unable to recline seats for much of the flight under guidance of flight attendants. Unable to sleep as a result."

Cons: "Air port does not have automatic internet connection We were there for 8 hours with no internet because we had no international roaming to receive the PIN via SMS. The four PINS generated by the counter staff did not work. We all took turn to try to no avail. by then we have walked too far from the counter we could not be bother going back. No airport that I've been to had poor internet service connection like this airport, yet it is supposed to be THE WORLD'S NUMBER ONE AIRLINE. We boarded at 11.30pm, last time we flew with them they gave us supper. Last night they gave us only water. We went to sleep hungry till the morning. Since when they started to operate like those cheap airlines that you have to pay for your food? And the night package did not have eye mask.... how could we sleep... ? Singapore airline could learn from Qtar. Very very disappointed."

Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The staff is amazing and know what parents of bubs need."
Pros: "Excellent customer service, helpful staff"
Cons: "Food was unpalatable - HNML. Needs to be improved, the beans in a tomato sauce looked like a tin of dice tomatoes was poured over the boiled beans. Chicken curry didn’t taste good either as it was over cooked. Didn’t relish the vermicelli dessert or the salmon. Thanks for the roll & lactose free butter, the cheese and biscuits"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and professional and the amenities were top notch."
Cons: "There wasn't enough leg room. My knees touched the chair in front of me the whole time."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, punctual, helpful crew."
Cons: "I don't see the point in giving out menus for economy class, especially as it's only a choice of 2 meals and one of them wasn't available anyway. It's a waste of paper."
Pros: "I liked the food that was provided and the range of entertainment is up to date anencephaly plentiful, spoiling you for choice. The flight crew were very friendly and prompt to serve which was amazing"

Cons: "Older plane, entertainment system incredibly slow, plane needs tidying up, starting to look its age."
Pros: "Nothing"

Cons: "AC works when wheels are up and engines kick in. So its stuffy whilst on the ground"

Cons: "aircon temperature is too hot for seat 50H area."
Pros: "Getting up at 4am on a Monday (post Singapore 7s) - couldn't have been a better timing for a free upgrade (as the plane was full). Travelling on Singapore Air is always a pleasure - but that made it even better....."

Cons: "not much to complain about."
Cons: "Too hot in plane Food really late, 1h after special meals Entertainment system archaic, age of plane All isles seats gone as soon as checkin open"
Cons: "old plane, boarding ramp smelled musty, food not nice, entertainment system was old not touch screen, male crew not patient with passengers, drinks stingy(split a can of soda with other passengers, and gave you a 1/4 cup). When asked for more OJ with breakfast was told they would come back later(mouth was very dry due to the air). Not impressed as we paid good money for the ticket with the poor service"
Pros: "Service was great, food was alright, was able to move from a middle seat to a window."
Cons: "The flight I was supposed to take from Nanjing to Hong Kong by Hong Kong Airlines in the afternoon didn't exist so I had to take a morning flight. Was given no warning and had to check on my own. The Singapore Airlines flight was on time though."

Flight was fine but Kate Worse was having the booking bounced from one flight to another after having booked and paid

Cons: "No vegetarian food option. Seat uncleaned. Last seat on plane separate from family with people constantly standing next to and bumping at toilets - little consideration fro Covid-19"
Cons: "It’s ridiculous that Cheaptickets (your contracted agent) did not answer the phone to change flights. And when they did answer the phone, charged extortionate change fees above and beyond Qantas fees even during the coronavirus pandemic."
Cons: "Dinner choices could be better. Slow boarding process."
Pros: "Clean, roomy and peaceful flight"
Cons: "Not being 20min late and having NO ground announcement about the delay and impact on connecting flights. When I suggest to a staff member that perhaps they should keep customers informed, they said they couldn’t because they didn’t know. They helpfully suggested I google for information! Seriously!"
Pros: "Professional and friendly staff amazing cabin crew and pilots"
Cons: "The inflight wifi was not working the snack was only a biscuit"
Pros: "Good food and entertainment"
Cons: "Timely"
Pros: "Crew was fine, seating was ok. Appreciated food and snacks, boarding - and disembarking- was handled super well."
Cons: "How do you enforce 'quiet time' when there are chatty children in the row in front and in back of you? Was constant distraction."
Pros: "Quantas Entertainment app was great!"
Cons: "Quantas seems to have frequent gate changes. You have to pay attention. No WiFi in terminals despite posted signs."
Pros: "Great food, great service!"
Cons: "I told Nicole that my sound wasn’t working and I had tried with 3 different headsets. She just shrugged her shoulders and walked away. Not good enough for the price you pay for Qantas. I travel with qantas all the time and have never received service like this."
Pros: "Nothing paid a bomb and got nothing for it"
Cons: "Everything!! Never again will I be hoodwinked for the price of a standard seat"
Pros: "The view"
Cons: "Poor food and no choice, only given tofu noodles! The general appearance of the plane was dated and worn, needs a refit. It felt more like a cheap budget airline not ‘the spirit of australia’ as branded. The touch screen was so bad that you forced the persons head in front to move when you pressed the screen."
Pros: "Staff are always amazing"
Cons: "There were no headphones for in flight entertainment. Sure its only an hour long flight but still, some distraction from the turbulence would have been nice."
Pros: "This flight is extremely long, but very enjoyable when flying with Qantas. They have everything, from snacks and drinks in the back of the plane to coming by pretty often to give you food. I was never hungry or upset wth the service."
Cons: "nothing I didn’t like!"
Pros: "Fantastic. the crew was very kind and professional. Food was the best airplane food I have had so far."
Pros: "food was good, great entertainment, crew very attentive"
Cons: "everything was good"
Pros: "Upon confirming my flight I had received a middle seat. When I got to Sydney I was able to talk a host at the gate to see if she can move to an aisle seat. She did and it was at the front of the row with plenty of leg room. I couldn’t have asked for a better flight home."
Cons: "The mess other passengers made. Have some respect for yourself and the stewardess. I could only imagine the home some of these people Live in."
Pros: "Clean, timely, organized, good food, good entertainment, smooth... Aussome! :)"
Cons: "My remote in my arm rest (58D) was a bit broken. While it still worked, the flap was missing some screws to hold it in place. Also, the touch screen oftentimes had issues sensing my finger on the pause button. Overall it did not hinder me from enjoying the entertainment services provided."
Pros: "Love those seat covers and overall comfort"
Cons: "My wife's headset channel, not the headset, was defective and was heavy with distortion. Overall, the plane seemed a bit worn. However, good floght overall."
Pros: "Got a good price for RT ticket."
Cons: "Wasn’t fond of Qantas charging for seat selection for standard economy (international)."
Cons: "The most uncomfortable chair I have even sat in, I arrived home 5 days ago and my back still hurts."
Pros: "The service, politeness of staff, the food."
Cons: "An hour late"
Cons: "Unnecessary delays"
Cons: "I’m not sure whose fault it was but we arrived late in Brisbane which caused multiple flyers and myself to miss our flight to Perth. There was no one at the Brisbane airport that attempted to help us solve this problem. No one ushered us through long lines or anything and just told use that, ‘oh well, you’re just going to miss your flight.’ Highly disappointed and in similar circumstances at other airports and with different airlines, I have had much better experiences."
Pros: "There was an excellent selection of movies to choose from. Breakfast was actually pretty tasty, and snacks and water were offered quite frequently. The seat was reasonably comfortable, and reclines back a decent way. For how huge the plane was, the boarding process was super fast and efficient!"
Cons: "Seats were still rather cramped for my poor husband, who is 6'3. It is very hard to get out of your seat if you're in a window and all the seats on front are fully reclined, and I am relatively spry! Can't imagine an elderly or debilitated person trying to do so! The in flight movies were great, but you had to use the headphones they provide, and none of the 3 pairs I tried worked well. All had constant static. Although the seats recline far, they also do it abruptly and are hard to get to come back up. The dinner (we had the beef) was not very good. The quality of the ground beef was what you would expect from a fast food place. The worst part of the flight was that the sat ALL the infants in the same area on the plane, and all right around us. 5 of them, to be exact. 17 hours of on and off screaming babies! My husband had to move to a different seat to get some sleep! Thankfully, I can sleep through anything. Overall, less terrible than I expected a 17 hour flight to be, but could have been better. Some crew were very nice and helpful and others not so much. The first woman my husband asked told him (rather abruptly) that he wouldn't be able to use his CPAP machine. Then a really nice guy helped him get it set up. The turbulence was a bit scary for me, and the way the captain would announce it didn't help! He'd just say "all passengers and crew be seated and fasted your seat belts" in a rather grim tone as the plane shook violently."
Cons: "We were unable to access the boarding area until about 15 min prior to the flight for some unknown reason. We were held in an "anteroom" area. The boarding process was a bit confused as a result."
Cons: "We did not get on our flight because we weren’t notified of the time change. Extremely dissatisfied with customer service and the overall airline."
Pros: "The staff are some of the best in the sky"
Cons: "The usual riff raff amongst passengers"
Pros: "The plane itself was nice and comfortable for me. The business class seat fully laid down, and there were lots of entertainment options. The flight was quick! 15hr flight from Melbourne to LAX only took 13 hours!"
Cons: "Several of the food items were either cold or overdone. I asked hostess what the deal was (because their food service is usually great) and she explained that in this new plane (Boeing 787) they removed a lot of the working areas for the crew. They have less space to work in order to be able to prepare food and drinks compared to Qantas's other planes (Airbus A380). This is also a brand new plane for this crew (literally the first flight for some for some of them), and they didn't know where some of the things on the plane were. I imagine after they've used the plane for a while and learn where everything is, they'll get better. I'll find out on the return flight back to Melbourne."
Pros: "More spacious and very friendly service."
Cons: "The airplane did not have any USB or power outlets"
Pros: "the size of the aircraft and leg room in coach."
Cons: "I had ordered a special meal which was never delivered. I also don't like the weight restriction for carryon luggage. I got from the US to Australia without my luggage weighted and carried it on, but on my return to the US was told I had to check it. DO NOT like checking luggage."
Pros: "No issues, quick and friendly."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Food was terrible (gave it 1 star because it showed up) and boarding was chaotic"
Pros: "Flew over the Antarctic! Had an empty seat next to me Looking out of the window Good entertainment system"
Cons: "Not offered a drink until I asked on both meal services. 2hr late departing due to airport congestion due to to Qantas over Sydney centric focus. Food was good but maybe a bit sparse Evidence of of cost cutting. Long flight (14hrs)"
Pros: "Felt looks after by crew"
Cons: "The kioks were a joke. I entered my details, it displayed both boarding passes but only printed one. Had repeat the process. The queue for checking in luggage was also terrible. No organisation what so ever. I waited in a queue that switched staff twice and when i got to the front i was advised that it was break time and she didn't know who was replacing her. I was called over by another staff member at a different queue. Another passenger jumped in. Someone then manned my original queue who called over the person that was originlally behind me. The passnger advised that I was first but the staff memeber rudely told me to wait. The other passenger insisted so I was finally served. Terrible and frustrating experience"
Cons: "I landed in Sydney but had a Qantas connecting flight to Melbourne. The baggage was checked in at Dallas thru to Melbourne. You need to drop off the baggage back to Qantas after clearing Customs in Sydney. Unfortunately Qantas makes you walk quite a long distance to to baggage drop off point. The experience made me think of experiences I have had in developing countries. I expected more thoughtful logistical arrangements from Qantas in Australia."
Pros: "Crew on the plane was a group of wonderful ladies. Always smiling & pleasant, even when they had to move people around. Great service with a smile."
Cons: "No info ahead of time about checking in. Once we got to the airport, I was told that I should have known better & checked in 24 hours prior. initially, the agent said that all seats are appropriated randomly. At the gate, I'm told different. I had to fight tooth & nail to get a seat next to my wife (who often gets airsick). It didn't feel good to have to argue & make a scene to accomplish this."
Pros: "Tivi was broken"
Cons: "the crew gave me 50.00$ credit back to next fly I am very impress"
Pros: "Was bumped off fjight. Due to not being checked in by Jetstar. Crew was nice and put us on a later Hawaiian."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The seat cushions are stiff and uncomfortable. And the seat backs were in my face the whole time."
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "very rough ride"
Pros: "Normal economy seat. It seemed as if there was a little more leg room than normal. Crew was very courteous and accomodating."
Cons: "Typical airline food. Nothing else to complain about."
Cons: "Five hour delay due to faulty maintenance at LAX. Pilot (rightly) refused to fly until maintenance work correctly completed. Plane then diverted to Brisbane to change crew, en route to Melbourne."
Pros: "Great everything by Qantas - couldn't fault any aspect of the service"
Cons: "Not good that traffic backed up 800 metres to get to drop off zone!"
Pros: "The crew, the food"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Staff."

Pros: "Extra Leg Room, 3 seats between 2, worth the extra money, surprised they provided breakfast"

Pros: "Quick, efficient, all you want and need for a flight to Melbourne."
Pros: "On time and arrived 5 minutes early. Newer 737 plane so seats didn't have that worn look and feel"
Cons: "Only had slices of apple or energy ball."

Cons: "The hostess ran out of tea and when I asked for a top up she did not come back"
Pros: "Staff"
Cons: "Delayed flight VA1519 Sydney to Townsville. Received sms that new flight is 2pm Received email that new flight is 3pm Called virgin who guaranteed me it’s 3pm so I asked for that in writing...no was the answer Asked to speak to mgr, same lady came back to now “guarantee “ it’s 2pm. Spoke to mgr this time guaranteed 2pm and Will email in half hour (I’ll be boarding by then ! Sorry best I can do but you are now in seat 3a economy x. Asked for complaint to be lodged, unsure if she did? At virgin check in no details of everything above. Showed lady two conflicting msgs from virgin and the above so she put me in 3a... I could have been there at 3pm if I didn’t ask for it in writing. That potentially could have cost me upwards of a grand if I had to stay another night in Sydney and another ticket... not happy!!!"
Cons: "Has it really come down to this To the Vegan that put this on the menu as the snack for the masses do you really find this appropriate"
Pros: "Happy hour Is great marketing move for us tired working people to start our journey Like flights used to be"

Pros: "Boarding in Sydney was easier than anticipated. Crew were good"
Cons: "Stop off in Darwin? Really? Star Alliance is a bit of a joke-poor coordination between VA and Air NZ. No lounge access given we’re Air NZ elite members"
Pros: "Flight from Sydney to LA was fine, no issues. Issue on connection from LAX to JFK."
Cons: "We were delayed getting out of Sydney so late getting to LAX. Ran to get through customs, then airline rep said we might not make flight connection but to run...so we ran through two terminals, dropped baggage, ran through security to our gate...made it while flight still open...but...gate agent said Virgin had re-booked us already on flight 5 hours later and we no longer had seats on that flight. So two very serious questions that I have not yet gotten a satisfactory answer... 1) why were they allowed to re-book me without my consent? Every other situation, including changes to this itinerary in the past, I was told no changes could be made without my approval? 2) if they had already give away our confirmed seats, why in heavens did they tell us to run? At the airport I got a variety of answers that seemed to be pointing fingers since Sydney flight was Virgin Australia and LAX was Delta....despite codeshare seems these two companies do not work so seamlesslessly and one has no real idea what the other is doing....to the travelers detriment."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled, no compensation, had to find somewhere to stay, travel to and from airport for a flight the next day instead."
Pros: "Good service"

Pros: "The staff was lovely. Flight was on time, smooth and landed a bit early."

I feel terrible complaining about it. She did warn me. But it was very uncomfortable. Luckily it was just an hour's flight."
Cons: "The time"

Pros: "Baggage price"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Excellent cabin attendance ratiio to passengers."
Cons: "Seat comfort"
Pros: "Very little, again delayed in leaving resulting in arrival quite late"
Cons: "Unknowlingly dropped teeth which went under the seat and Virgin has no means of contacting airport to put mind at rest after flight and phone contact almost impossible as staff unable or unwilling to assist. No phone number in directory, no phones at airport. and in an emergency no way of contact and no one willing to do anything to assist. Food better but still too much rice. Long boring flight with no entertainment in flight. Very Very Disappointing Robert Richardson 0895930984"

Boarding on time and no delays once on the plane

Why is it so hard for Jetstar to get boarding a plane correct? In this current environment why have everyone on the plane early to just sit on the plane while they work out where their boarding system went wrong resorting to using a hand held counter to check numbers on the plane Having everyone on the plane for longer than necessary is very annoying then when arriving at the destination it takes 1/2 for ground crew handling baggage to get the bags out again this creates issues with keeping people in confined spaces longer than necessary

Pros: "Good crew, very friendly. Went above and beyond to find a passenger at baggage claim who left something on board."
Cons: "Boarding was very delayed."
Pros: "no amazing crew and no warm and fuzzies"
Cons: "Pre bought meals and wasn't permitted hot chocolate for children. Eventually given and nothing said. On the journey over hot choc offered. Not a big deal. I think you fall down in customer service by not supplying a little like coffee and hot choc and a free snack. Possably will avoid flying Jetstar again. Service is paramount. And no entertainment available because it wasnt a long haul just a short haul though international. Mmmmm no to Jetstar i feel. I own a resort and i know what customer service must feel like."
Cons: "Time"
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Time"
Pros: "Seat was uncomfortable, crew was lovely"
Cons: "Tired seats should be updated."
Cons: "Flight was almost 2 hours late. Short flight ended up being over 2 hrs as landing conditions were not suitable and plane had to keep hovering around the airport for a long time before it was cleared to land. Crew was very nice. Seats very roomy in economy."
Pros: "Straight forward and timely service. Staff was fun and engaging."
Cons: "Forced to check carryon because it was over 7 kilograms, but it is a standard carryon suitcase. Weight is irrelevant as it goes in the same plane. I understand keeping folks in check so they don’t bring big bulky items, and I get pushing the weight angle to drive sales, but taking the bag (after folks have paid for the “extra weight”) and putting it in the belly is excessive. As a male, I had no purse and all of my items were taken from me and I had to hope they made it to the other side (which they did, but it isn’t always the case). However, my wife was allowed to have two items (purse and carryon) as long as each were under the 7kilos and combined weren’t over 15 kilos. My bag was 14.4 kilos. Same weight being brought on and it’s just semantics and really kinda sexist against men if you think about it. Just sayin..."
Pros: "Good seat. Good service."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "I paid for for “sports equipment” when I purchased my ticket, however was still made to pay an extra 275$ For my bike upon arrival at the boarding gate. Not happy. I lined up for 1hr 7 minutes before I was able to check in, ridiculous - I just got to the gate as it was boarding and I Arrived 3 hours early for my international flight."
Pros: "I think free coffee and tea would be a good touch. Back to Quantis I go . all staff good. Jan"
Cons: "Not enough to room in seats for a flight this long"
Pros: "They did try to make up time in the air"
Cons: "Plane was a little late arriving so boarding was delayed which then resulted in longer delays as wind gusts kicked in and could not take off after boarding the plane result missed bus connections"
Pros: "Good seats"
Cons: "Very rude male crew My baby started crying only by the end of the journey because her ears were hurting her due to high atmospheric pressure, and the guy came and shouted at her and us to stop crying !!"
Cons: "Two hours delayed on the way. Four and a half hours delayed on the return flight. No explanation or apology for either leg."
Cons: "Rude ground staff."
Pros: "Safe airline. Kind staff."
Cons: "We could not check in online and waited over an hour to check in then due to our luggage had to wait in a separate line to pay. We arrived not knowing this is a budget airline and you have to pay for everything. Due to weight restrictions they forced us to check our carryon luggage for $100 AUD per item. They said their website tells you of this fee but 3rd party sites, such as Kayak, does NOT upon booking. We were very frustrated to be paying such a large fee to check our carry on luggage. Kayak should tell you about these hidden fees upon booking as the fees were in the fine print AFTER booking and we simply did not read the fine print. Very disappointed in the lack of communication from Kayak. Entertainment cost an additional $10 and their choices were limited, food and drinks also cost $ on the plane."
Cons: "Close seating. 45 minute delay to take off. sitting in cramped airplane on runway."
Pros: "None of it"
Cons: "The whole Jetstar team"
Pros: "Surprised with a great (in air) Uluru shot, 10min before we landed"
Cons: "Delayed"
Cons: "Too bad you have to pay for every service...seats, TV, food."
Cons: "THE SERVICE WAS EXTREMELY POOR AND THE STAFF WERE RUDE...MY DAUGHTER WAS STANDING DUE TO A BACKACHE AND WAS TOLD BY A STEWARD THAT SHE COULD NOT STAND IN ONE SPOT BUT HAD TO WALK UP AND DOWN THE AISLE OR SIT....DISGRACEFUL ATTITUDE BORDERING ON HARRASSMENT... WILL NEVER FLY WITH JETSTAR AGAIN!!!"
Pros: "non"
Cons: "Jetstar"
Pros: "Staff were very friendly"
Cons: "For some reason I thought I had extra legroom but apparently not I was squished in between two people in the back of the plane the person in front of me was moving around a lot and hurting and knocking my knees"
Cons: "Eat and sleep"
Pros: "On time. Captain lovely, Crew lovely."
Cons: "My chair would recline, it kept going back up."
Cons: "Fast efficient travel friendly staff"
Pros: "Air conditioning comfortable"
Cons: "Will not travel again on jetstar as seating is very uncomfortable..not good for aussies probably suitable for asians who have shorter legs."
Pros: "Very capable crew flying in terrible conditions with high winds. Flights after our take off were suspended due to appalling weather."
Cons: "There's little to like. Extremely cramped conditions. Poor food and beverage. Avoid if you possibly can."
Pros: "The flight was on time leaving and arriving good checking."
Cons: "The plane is very basic no entertainment very dull."
Pros: "i like the use of kiosks they need to have more machines as the staff have a poor service attitude and give the responses as machines."
Cons: "Booked a ticket with 20kg checked bag; didn't pack as much so took a carry on. The flight was delayed so they decided to weigh carry ons. It came to 10kg plus Laptop bag. They charged me $50 extra. On explaining I have 20kgs included and am happy to go check it in myself. They didn't let me. Not sure why when the flight was delayed by more than 30 min. staff not helpful or considerate. No solution offered to make me happy or to acknowledge that I had already paid for 20kg. I could be talking to a machine and it would've been the same outcome."
Pros: "On time Polite and friendly crew Way better than Qantas"
Cons: "How is it that a chair on a public train can be more comfortable than one I pay thousands to use"
Cons: "As I stated previously this company's complete lack of concern for customer service is appalling. I have directed my managers and staff to ensure that this company is no longer engaged to supply transportation to any of my companies"
Pros: "Polite staff well organized"
Cons: "My flight was 45 minutes late Absolutely no room when seated"
Cons: "Flight cancelled Had to recheck in. Boarding gate changed 3 times"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled at short notice without explanation"
Pros: "I like the Punctuality and the way the plane was loaded- very efficient Plane was very tidy and clean"
Cons: "The menu is mediocre as far as the snacks are concerned. More imagination needed"
Cons: "Inconsistencies in interpretation of cabin baggage Browns cows boarding procedures, lack of organization, time wasting system of issuing boarding pass at the gate after scanning tablet or phone, perhaps that should be done at bag drop"
Pros: "Crew were nice,flight itself went off without a hiccup and was fairly fuss-free"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by approximately 1 hour, and there were few announcements about this until fairly late, and the departure billboards were slow to update too. Also, no armrest on my seat's right arm which was a little less comfortsble that it could have been (window seat, emergency exit row)"
Pros: "The crew was amazing."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "They made room for me on the next flight"
Cons: "Everything - they texted me telling me that the flight was delayed, and then I arrived at the gate and told me it left an hour earlier. I have text messages to prove that it was scheduled at 1:30pm, the plane left at 12:35pm and I had already checked in, checking in my suitacase, and the flight left without me and took my suitcase - absolutely ridiculous."
Pros: "Food was good and crew provided good service."
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable but was more because person behind was large and kept digging their knees into my back. I was also not able to recline my seat because of their large size. I would have happily paid a little extra to be upgraded away from this passenger to ensure a more comfortable flight."
Pros: "USB chargers, flight ran to time and left on time. Very smooth landing."
Cons: "Cost of checked baggage is too high. I also paid for five meals and only received three, and got the fourth only after asking. Could not be bothered fighting over the fifth as there were only four of us travelling and had only accidentally paid for five. After all the costs for add-ons, it's better to pay slightly more for a better carrier."
Cons: "The made me pay $50 for my skateboard as checked luggage! Skateboarding is not a crime and I'm not a f ucking terrorist! If I was forewarned I could have pre paid and it would only have cost me $12. Either way, it's feking bullshite!"
Cons: "The hidden baggage cost more than taking a first class flight on a different airline, normal 50lb bags traveling over seas for 2 weeks."
Pros: "Easy online check in hassle free flight"
Cons: "Worker was too loud while I was trying to nap"
Pros: "I liked nothing other than my very expensive Gold luggage (which seemed like that was what I was paying for) arrive at my destination as expected. I liked nothing about the flight experience."
Cons: "Oh where do I start. I guess check-in at the Sydney airport. Apparently this airline has a very different baggage policy. A policy that is not really readily available for you to see. Customer Service at the counter was horrible including the manager that we talked to. We ended up throwing things in the trash to get our weight down and we were told we changed our baggage weight and lowered our own allowance . How rediculous would that be of us. They even told us we were only allowed 1 carry on which includes our purse and could not be over A certsin weight. For a small carry-on......that is really rediculous. Our luggage cost us $470.00. We had no complimentary food or entertainment for our 8 hour flight. We will NEVER fly this airline again and I hope from reading this review and many others, that you won't either."
