Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Typical JAL, nearly everything was fantastic."
Cons: "I don't think it could be made better but legroom on this flight was cramped. Certain planes in the JAL fleet have really cramped legroom and uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Food, service,"
Cons: "Some crazy flight itinerary they should not sell at all! At first I thought layover was same location only to find out it was another airport across of time. Flew into ITM and flew out KIX and boarding ticket it says only OSAKA so I didnt know. I barely made the flight....if they had accommodate the transportation I would understand. But they tell you, you have to make it there on your own. Another CRAZY information is that I thought at the very least the baggage will be transferred. But nope! You have to pick up the baggage and ride the train across town to the other station. Whoever made this itinerary should be really fired and no longer work at this company. You take a great airline and make the experience so bad."
Pros: "Perfect service, never had a more pleasant and attentive crew"
Cons: "Movies were pretty much still the same as 10 weeks ago. Not possible to sleep in the seat in premium economy right by the toilets and galley. Constant door clattering and toilet flushing. In other cabins the noise wasn't as bad, probably better insulated?"

Cons: "The horrible JET LAG I have now lol."
Pros: "Everyone is polite, helpful, and the flight was quite pleasant."

Cons: "Seats are too small for tall travelers."
Pros: "We were coming back from treking in Nortwest Viet Nam. JAL upgraded us to business class (ie, sleeper bed) for the Ha Noi to Tokyo, and gave us good seats on to HNL. FOOD was the best. Next time we'll try HNL-SAI entry to Nam. The Boeing 787 was a great ride to/from Ha Noi, particularly with JAL service."
Pros: "JAL used to be a premium airline like Korean Air"
Cons: "Now JAL is like American Air, just stuffing a greyhound full of souls."
Pros: "The crew were all exceptionally pleasant, helpful."
Cons: "I didn't care at all for the food."
Pros: "Our flight TO Tokyo from Honolulu was wonderful! Our seats were spacious, the plane wasn't filled to capacity, the in-flight entertainment was the best I've ever seen, the food was amazing. On our flight BACK, the crew was still wonderful, and the boarding process is quick and efficient."
Cons: "Aside from having to take the red-eye, the seats for our return flight were the most cramped I've ever been. My 6' husband's knees were touching the seat in front of him, and the seats were super narrow. I can't remember being so cramped in my entire life. That's really my biggest complaint, but when the flight is 6 1/2 hours, being cramped gets old really quick."
Pros: "Flight attendants and ticket agents were very nice and helpful."
Pros: "Plenty of leg room, which as a tall person I truly appreciate. They give you slippers, blanket, pillow on every (international?) flight. I flew Korea to Japan and Japan to Hawaii. Got free meals on all flights, even my short two hr flight between Korea and Japan. Free booze too!"

Pros: "The best airline I have flown in. Plenty of room and the in-flight service was excellent."
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."

Cons: "some flt attendants didnt speak english or they didnt understand what i was saying. (but it was fine, i was flying on a Japanese airline and didnt expect them to speak english."

Pros: "The Japanese flight attentants were excellent. Entertainment was excellent"
Cons: "I didn't like the other asian flight attendants. They were rude. Asked for water, she said we're not serving water only juice at this time. Asked for Consume or Dashi there weren't any. asked for diet coke they ran out. very small things but weren't able to satisfy our trip back to HNL."
Pros: "Best and consistent service."
Pros: "Best prices for quality service. If the prices for JAL are within $30, I will always select JAL."

Pros: "Singapore Airlines has everything worked out for you before you land. That's a great help. The stewardesses were just phenomenal and endlessly polite. I will definitely use them again."

Cons: "The aircraft was very cold and chilly."
Pros: "SQ always has the best looking flight attendants"
Pros: "Entertainment system was new and easy to use. Seats in premium economy were quite comfortable."
Cons: "A vegetarian / pescatarian option on the menu would have been nice but other than that, all good."
Pros: "Crew very attentive but not intrusive. Food very good."
Cons: "I did not find much to watch on entertainment system. Have to get crew to assemble flat bed, a bit of a nuisance. Also to turn it back into a chair."
Cons: "Having boarded at SYD, during the Canberra stop, we were all required to disembarked. It was a loaded flight so the process was slow"

Pros: "crew were very friendly and helpful. flight was one of the best i’ve had"
Cons: "boarding at sydney was very confusing"
Cons: "WiFi didn’t work on 3 of the 4 flights although all purportedly had it. Also didn’t work the majority of the time in the Business Class Lounge in Singapore. Food was mediocre both on flights and in the lounge. Movie selection could hardly have been worse."
Pros: "Crew , announcements were restful , not loud and blasting like some airlines"
Cons: "Nothing Singapore Airline is Super Lufthansa food lousy , late leaving Kuala Lumpur, missed our connection assigned to a later flight, running to catch rescheduled time and changed gate."
Pros: "The crew was lackluster; unusual for Singapore Airlines. Tall individuals will not like the business class seats."
Pros: "Crew were very good. Cabin was also much better than Qantas premium economy cabin."
Cons: "Had premium economy seat. Not the most comfortable on the tailbone for some reason."
Pros: "Boarding went smoothly, crew extremely curtious and helpful."
Cons: "Plane was an older model and I did not have strength to recline seat. Quality of seat back screens poor and hand sets difficult to navigate for a technophobe like Ma."
Pros: "The crew was great as usual. The food was good"
Cons: "Better seats - really uncomfortable with a packed plane and wailing infants even when seated quite a few rows away."
Pros: "On time Smooth landing and take off Airport was beautiful, nice clean toilets Lovely and polite staff on board Food was okay Nice range of in-flight entertainment"
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: "Flight was late due to the eternal airtraffic mess at suvanabhumi whenever it rains"
Cons: "Older plane not so comfortable for a long flight. Movies, not much choice and far away from seat."
Pros: "Punctual flight with friendly crew."
Pros: "Cabin crew was top notch - even in coach they could not be more accommodating and customer friendly. US airline flight attendants don’t even come close to this team that truly serviced the cabin for 8 hours continuously without the typical hiding in the back of the plane and chatting. Very encouraging that genuine care in the air is very much alive and well on Singapore Air! I will fly them every chance I get!"
Cons: "That my flight had to end and I know my next US airline flight won’t come close to this kind of experience! Air travel doesn’t have to be a cattle herding process with peanut treats on cross country flights - shame on the US carriers - I strongly suggest they fly Singapore Air to see what true customer service feels like!"
Pros: "The crew and the little things like blanket, pillow, hot towels etc that is just standard. The food was great except the bread rolls Entertainment system was fantastic"
Cons: "They seemed to miss a whole section with immigration cards which delayed my party of travellers when we landed. The recline of the seat is huge, great for those wo recline, not so great for the person behind them"
Pros: "check-in, priority lane, BKK-SKL, boarding, crew, cabin, disembark, baggage claim to cab home"
Cons: "baby crying throughout the flight"

Pros: "The flight attendants were amazing."
Cons: "Some staff not courteous which surprised me"
Pros: "wide seats. great service. on time."
Cons: "food was not as good as one would expect."
Cons: "Boarding at Singapore airport was shocking, as we had to wait 6 hours for our flight. Rating low to the crew mainly because of the ground staff as they were not very communicative to begin with about the explanation for our delay. Only when the passengers got a bit more vocal about wanting explanations, they started giving us a bit more information. All estimated times given for boarding the flight were incorrect by a big margin! Seemed more like they were giving shorter wait time for boarding just to please the passengers, where as they were well aware of how long the wait would be."
Pros: "Service is the best among the airlines I’ve ever taken"
Cons: "Never ever get free upgrade"
Pros: "the first class seats from HK to SFO, IFE, service, dom perignon, red wine, excellent attention, greeted personally by four of flight team, provided flight details personally. Im 6'0" so the bed was a little short. it was simply a wonderful experience."
Cons: "the IFE is not touch screen and pausing on the hand held was fidgety, but a huge 24 inch screen and beautiful."
Pros: "crews were helpful"
Cons: "nobody suggested me about $20 discount coupon card . I could have enjoyed my meal free while waiting in teansit."
Pros: "Was very old plane but was good"
Cons: "Food and crew was well"
Cons: "The cabin was quite warm"
Pros: "Prem econ very good. Crew very friendly."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and whole on ground process was efficient."
Cons: "Aircraft not as clean as expected from a flight departing from their home port. Can't put my finger on it, but standards have slipped for slipped for SQ, albeit from a very high standard."
Pros: "Food was delicious!"
Pros: "Is Singapore Airlines food quality slipping? First time I’ve been really unenthusiastic about it..."
Cons: "Food was. Not available. They said they don't have extra veg food . I selected beg food still it shows them non veg and I was pass my way with empty stomach"
Pros: "Best serves ever will fly every time"
Pros: "Clean aircraft. First rate and very attentive cabin staff. High Quality food and mid flight snacks. Its clear a lot of thought has gone into the making and running of this airline. My first experience and quite frankly I will fly SIA whenever possible."
Cons: "Cabin was to me a little warm during initial taxi at LAX. But not overly so."
Cons: "Old planes and screens."
Pros: "We did not die in a hellacious ball of flame Aviation incident!"
Cons: "Bulkhead seating (required for bassinet) Row 41, my seat was practically in the aisle. No where to put my feet without getting trodden on by everyone! Broken entertainment screen, would not stay upright, due to several hundred thousand past passengers bashing into it after having first trodden on the unfortunate passengers feet! Crew unresponsive with drink and food requests, I had to ask for services multiple times on several occasions. Pressing my 'attendant button' my light was lit for 10 minutes before a crew member noticed. My first trip on Singapore, my expectations were not met. Shame"
Pros: "Cabin crew are always great"
Cons: "Cabin fitout is getting tired and dated. Etihad leaves it for dead in first class"
Cons: "Singapore Airlines always boast themselves as first class service. That is just bs. At night when I was hungry, I asked the flight attendant for some snack, both a male and a female served at my cabin said, "we don't have that." I expected SQ staff to serve one step further, instead of stopping at a no. Can't you recommend something? Throughout the entire trip, whenever I asked something, the way they answered always made me feel that I was a trouble to them. Is it because I was in an economy class and that's how you treat me? SQ, you may want to change what you are proud of. It's no longer a first class service, at least not to us poor economy class passengers."
Pros: "Food & condition"
Cons: "Crew were unfriendly and rude"
Pros: "Changed by very helpful ground staff from lousy seats to exit row at no cost."
Cons: "Entertainment interface showing its age."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled during peak season with little notice time Lack of service Lack of compensation"
Pros: "Crew were friendly and constantly moving through the cabin with drinks and snacks (outside of meal times)"
Cons: "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: "Crew and entertainment"
Cons: "Very small seats. For full flights they should use the double deck aircrafts. They are much more comfortable. I paid an expensive fair for an old plane which was unfair"
Cons: "Sydney to Singapore flight was a very old flight, uncomfortable seating and very poor quality entertainment system"
Pros: "Service and Operation"
Cons: "The plane ... its old, in need of a new interior as things are falling off and dirty ... Flew business class and although the service makes up for the old aircraft, i think SQ can do so much better !!!"
Pros: "The crew were welcoming and accommodating, whether you wanted to sleep or to watch entertainment or eat/drink."
Pros: "The flight crew/staff were professional and very helpful and accommodating to the passengers from check in to deboarding."
Cons: "Seats were a little close, especially for a long flight, with meals. Tight fit to be maneuvering, literally rubbing elbows."
Pros: "Attentive and friendly crew, leg room"
Cons: "Need to serve better food in economy. There is a little more legroom in economy compared to other airlines, however, the seats are tight. They are not wide enough. Need better movie selection."
Cons: "Qatar’s food is great! Feels like five star dining. Attendants are helpful and friendly."
Pros: "Every things was great ."
Pros: "The A330, despite being an old plane, had really good recline."
Cons: "The entertainment was very outdated."
Cons: "Headphones- only one channel."
Cons: "Thank for everything it is excellent"
Cons: "Entertainment on the Boeing 777 suffered from access problems"
Pros: "Customer service"
Pros: "So many movies to spend flight time with great crew"
Cons: "There are couple things. First of all, it was cold almost for everyone: everyone used a blanket, and some people asked for a second blanket. Secondly, I think that if this airline became the best airline in 2017, staff should care about their passengers’ stuff more than they do, so backpacks or suitcases don't lose parts or get crushed during flights. When I got my backpack back, I thought that someone had used it to play football. My backpack had lost some parts, and some pieces of it were torn!"
Cons: "Did not make this flight. How can I confirm that my ticket is still valid for the return trip?"
Pros: "Everything was good - food, entertainment, on time."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff."
Cons: "No entertainment available. A very old plane."
Pros: "I had never heard of Qatar Airways before I booked a 24hr flight to and from Sydney, Australia. I only did this on the suggestion from a friend that stated Qatar Airways was "alright". So for the price I thought what the heck! I was extremely pleased with the service from the cabin crew. They are always polite, professional, and well trained compared to my previous favorites Delta and Lufthansa. The seats were comfortable (as comfortable as Economy and 24hours of flying can be), the entertainment and aircraft were state of the art, and the food was outstanding for airline food. If I get the chance in the future I will definitely choose Qatar Airways for long trips."
Cons: "Other rude or snotty passengers taking up the crews time and attention for no reason. But as I stated in the "positive" side of this review, the crew handled these impolite individuals with a smile and polite attitude. Kudos to Qatar Airways."
Pros: "Great services"
Cons: "Boarding slow"
Pros: "Qatar has the best crews. The 777-300 is the most comfortable aircraft I've ever flown on, and I'm always in the cheap seats. Plenty of food."
Cons: "Some of the food dishes weren't appealing to me. But I get that trying to please everyone with everything on diverse international flights is impossible."
Pros: "Very affordable flights, good value for money. Most of the journey from Sydney to Oslo (via Doha) went qiluite smoothly)."
Cons: "The only thing I didn’t like about the experience was the fact that you can only check in one piece of luggage on economy class, and one very sour individual at the gate when boarding."
Pros: "quick eficient"
Cons: "long flight"
Pros: "Films Service"
Cons: "Not enough films"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and I liked that they didn’t make many announcements which can often keep passengers awake when they’re trying to sleep. Lights were kept off for the duration of the 14 hour flight which was good."
Cons: "I felt that the service was slow and the food was poor. Water was not offered during the flight as is the norm with other airlines. Toilets should be cleaned more regularly. Advertising at the beginning of the inflight entertainment became very repetitive when watching short tv shows."
Pros: "Crew courtesy, exceptional service"
Pros: "Wonderful airline! Very nice and friendly staff. I will fly with them again."
Pros: "Everything was excellent no complaints rated 10"
Cons: "I really enjoyed myself the flight and all I would recommend my friends to fly anytime rated 10"
Cons: "the wifi was average at best. I get that we there are limitations...but if the service is going to be this poor, make it free & unlimited."
Cons: "The boarding process was strange, with one guy directing several different zones to stand in line, people not cooperating and just overrall not very organized."
Pros: "All the stewards were so friendly and helpful. The facilities were very well serviced and so you forget that the plane was 100% full, despite long queues to the toilets. I would fly again with Qatar Air for sure."
Pros: "Business class was wonderful liked pjs, food, seating. Etc"
Cons: "Crew left a small amount of champagn in a glass which fell on me when I was asleep. Crew only offered first meal after that did not offer food only when I requested it. Limited gluten/ dairy free options"
Cons: "The process of checking in is difficult because qatar codes are different from asiana, therefore I couldn't do an online check in."
Pros: "Very helpful staff both ways, an experience that we rarely see in major airlines these days. We will definitely fly Qatar airways again."
Cons: "Front row with a toddler meant that we couldn't lift the armrests up and get her to lay down. She had to lie on the floor, but when we hit some turbulence, we had to wake her and sit her back up with us. The second part of the leg was much better as we were on a normal row seat"
Pros: "Over all it was a good experience"
Cons: "IEvery thing was fine."
Pros: "Didnt have food My mother has diabetes and she had one meal in her 14 hr flight Unacceptable"
Cons: "Meal plan customer service"
Cons: "very upset about fee i was charged for overweight luggage, and the unclear wording on their sites baggage allowance rules."

Pros: "Large monitor and many choices of movies. Good food, efficient boarding."
Pros: "Another B787. Had empty seats next to me."
Cons: "No menus handed out by the crew and little explanation of what the meal was beyond beef and rice or chicken and potato. For some reason they only serve a snack instead of a second meal on this flight."
Pros: "Boeing 787 with comfortable seats and large dimmable windows; handed out menus and two meals served; nice crew."
Cons: "The 787 entertainment system seems buggier than that on the A380—possibly an older system?"
Pros: "Over all the flight was great."
Cons: "However I feel the need to share that the lid of one of the lights fell off and hit my girlfriend on her nose while she was asleep hurting her instantly. I understand that it was an accident, but nobody takes responsibility for it."
Cons: "They gave us a small chicken sandwhich for breakfastand the next meel was over 6 hrs later with a small bag of chips in between. I was actually hungry when we got off our 13 hr flight."
Pros: "Food was great, seats were comfortable, in flight entertainment was awesome, flight crew was friendly"
Cons: "baggage process could have been better, i was made to remove stuff just because was 1-2 lbs overweight in my baggage. Never had this issue with other airlines (especially when its only matter of 1-2 lbs.)"
Pros: "The guidence between flights I was the only person off my flight to transfer and they sill had a gal waiting to take me to the next gate"
Pros: "Lots of space as the flight quite quiet. Very friendly staff."
Pros: "Crew Boarding"
Cons: "Food Not so comfy"
Pros: "Punctuality, Crew assistance"
Cons: "Refreshments are very basic and dry"
Cons: "Boarding staff give us wrong advice to make extra money from the passenger. They also pressurized us to decide quickly. our each check in baggage was over weight 1 KG or less than 1 KG due to faulty scale at home. Instead of giving us a choice or advice that you are allowed two more hand bags. They pressurized us to make one baggage over weight from all 7 bags and harassed us to do it quickly because they are closing counter in 20 minutes. That's how they charged me another $65. Also they lied on the counter that your seats are in a row but when i went into the plane our seats were separate. Lesson learned don't trust the person over the counter of Qatar airways."
Pros: "Brand new and beautiful A350 aircraft, great service"
Cons: "Nothing, actually."
Pros: "The convenience of the flight route was appreciated. Hawaiian has an excellent safety record which gave us peace of mind."
Cons: "The first hour of the plane was extremely turbulent; and crew gave us no warning or update regarding the flight conditions. Flight crew were unwelcoming, and the food was of course not good."
Cons: "Always amazing!!!!!!"
Cons: "Boarding process was messy"
Cons: "I’m sure you do the best you can."
Cons: "Too many announcements"
Cons: "Seating a little tight."

Cons: "7 hours of sitting in the airport because of a delay."
Cons: "They destroyed us a new samsonite suitcase"
Cons: "Stiff seats"
Cons: "Nothing!! They were top notch in my book!!!"
Pros: "The service of the flight."
Cons: "Hawaiian air didn't provide much food"
Pros: "Great crew. During meal time they did a great job of having passengers adjust their seats so people could eat their meals in economy. If they didn't do this, it would be left to the passengers to ask the person in front of them to raise the seat or have to struggle to eat with that person's seat close to your face. Having the crew do that was great. That is another thing nice with this Hawaiiian aircraft. The seats actually have leg room in econonmy and they recline enough to rest. Don't change that! Also very nice is that you get a complementary wine or beer with your meal :-)"
Cons: "Entertainment options felt like 'nickel and diming'. It is a 5+ hour flight and all the seats have personal entertainment consoles. The only thing is you have to pay ~$7 to watch any of the movies. Be sure to have your book or device loaded up before flight. Each seat has a USB charging port :-), however it only has low amps - this means you can't charge things like a tablet :-(."
Pros: "crew was friendly and helpful and the seats in economy plus were more than adequate."
Pros: "All services are great!"
Cons: "Too cold."
Pros: "Hawaiian Airlines consistently deliver top-quality service for economy class. The flights are more comfortable than the average, the crew is always very pleasant. I also appreciate that they make an effort to be eco-friendlier."
Cons: "I wish they had bigger range of food option. The entertainment system is not that broad but I don't mind, I can entertain myself on a flight."
Pros: "The crew were wonderful and the captain made a landing so perfect we didn't know we had landed!"
Cons: "The food was disappointing. The sandwich in particular was dry and tasteless. Other passengers mentioned this too."
Pros: "Really appreciated the 'laid-back' feel upon boarding and throughout, supported by the ambient slack-key guitar and native Hawaiian music. Also appreciated the engaging video presentation of basic safety and security information. "Free" Premium Entertainment was welcome, although I remained aware that this perk had been covered in my ticket price."
Cons: "Considering that you're attempting to please a wide array of tastes, the mass-produced ready-made meals were pretty good, just not necessarily five-star restaurant made-to-order preferences. Some of us are pretty picky about our organic, fresh, gluten-free, sugar-free, vegetarian, and vegan options. In that Hawaiian Airlines seems to market itself as a very conscientious and customer-friendly airlines, any evolution in this direction would be welcome."
Pros: "It was smooth! Mahalo"
Cons: "Passenger have to pay for every single entertainment."
Cons: "Delay. One luggage was dented. Second Luggage was lost and was delivered later to us."

Pros: "I was unable to board the flight so there is nothing to talk about."
Cons: "Provide options for accommodation, refund or alternate flights after announcing a 24-hour delay. I had to repurchase my flight from HKG to SFO after finding out that a return ticket is treated as abandoned if one does not fly one way. Not the level of service expected from an international airline."
Pros: "Seat worked as designed Got some sleep Crew was helpful"
Cons: "Better selection of movies; too much violence, foul language, sex and nudity - a better reflection of the food life."

Pros: "Nothing I like"
Cons: "The seats assigned are so at the back at the aircraft. Even both of us are members of the airline we haven’t received any flight notification. That’s really bad"
Cons: "Great service and got back earlier than expected."
Pros: "Customer service is excellent as usual. The plane is very well outfitted and modern. You can generally trust the Cathay standard. The pilots are good, and even though departure may have been delayed, we arrived ahead of schedule."
Cons: "I didn't prefer the premium economy section. Uncomfortable. I'd rather pay the fare for a cheaper economy seat, that is equally uncomfortable. It's terrible to start charging people for small, petty things like choosing one's seat."
Pros: "Ground staff was organized, efficient and polite. Breakfast in economy was very good and flavorful."
Cons: "Flight attendants were efficient; but not particularly friendly. No offer of water in t the middle of a long flight."
Pros: "Business class passengers use Qantas lounge in Brisbane - fresh and well stocked. Boarding was hassle free and flat beds were very comfortable. Crew were helpful while being very busy."
Cons: "We had seats in the centre but ate at totally different times. Left aisle and right aisle worked a different schedule - annoying. Entertainment very high tech but odd selections."

Cons: "The 777 was tired. Tray tables weren’t clean and it was fitted with seats that did not recline. Most uncomfortable!"
Pros: "Overall speaking CX flights quality has been declining over recent years"
Pros: "Movie choices."
Cons: "The weather delay was understandable - boarded flight 19 hours later than scheduled, but then there was a problem with the engine, that delayed us further by 5 hours. We had to sit on the aircraft for 5 extra hours on top of what was already an extra long flight. 21 hours on the plane - and there was no coffee! Being on a plane for that long, you should be able to get a cup of coffee. Staff seemed annoyed as well and were overall a bit rude. Wine tasted like acid."
Pros: "Crew were excellent, taking the time to introduce themselves and always responding promptly to requests"
Cons: "Service at times seemed a little disorganised. A minor issue though when compared to the overall service"
Pros: "The vegetarian/vegan meals were very good for airline food. There was a great selection of entertainment options."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants who was assigned to my section, her name was Rain, was incredibly rude. Every time I asked her for a glass of water, she would sigh heavily and tell me to wait. Eventually, she stopped serving me all together and I needed to leave my seat and ask other crew members to serve my food. She was completely unprofessional and she made it clear she didn't like me, despite the fact that I was always going out of my way to be courteous. At one point, she walked down the aisle and stepped directly onto my foot, which was NOT in the aisle but under the seat in front of me. She didn't even acknowledge that she had stepped on my foot and kept walking. For a 14-hour flight, I was really bothered by her lack of professionalism. I will have to think twice before I book Cathay Pacific again."
Pros: "They are very Harsh, There was no service at all."
Cons: "Airhostess response is very poor."
Pros: "Karen was nice."
Cons: "They took my drink I just bought before boarding the plane. The landing from the pilot wasn't great... by far the worst landing from all of my travels. The food for Vegetarian Lacto-Ovo Meal (VLML) - (A Vegetarian Meal that may also contain eggs and dairy products) was gross and the guy flight attendant wouldn't give me ice cream because I had a special meal. All I wanted for food was no meat; I didn't expect it would have no ice cream and no real food. I should've, could've taken one of the options on the food list and push away the meat myself."
Pros: "Service at every step and level."
Pros: "Service and timing"
Pros: "Liked the food and everything else"
Cons: "Total flight time was more . It was extra to go to Hing Kong from India . Normal flight time to Toronto from India is 16 hours in other flights . Does not seem like a good idea to waste 4 hours more when you come to Toronto from India by Cathay Pacific . I wish I was in some other flight to save time . Overall route of the flight was wrong"
Cons: "Our laugage is delay, service is worse than we never see."
Cons: "same as above"

Pros: "I liked the crews the food just ok. It was a long flight,my back was uncomfortable."
Pros: "Crew is lovely"
Cons: "My vegetarian food was horrible, terrible drink selection, mediocre entertainment."
Pros: "This was the cheapest direct flight to Hong Kong so I bought it. Alsonivam a qantas member so got the points. It was a day trip for me to go so I wanted to get some sleep both ways. I'm 188cm and the seats are just a little bit close together to let you stretch your legs but ok. Entertainment system is good and window seat was ok."
Cons: "Meals are terrible - soft mushy potatoes and scrambled eggs need a revamp, device is s bit chuck it at you. Flight out was 1.15 hours late but suited me other people were put out."
