Direct connection to US. Otherwise no in flight food choice and food quality is poor. Not much entertainment choices and are outdated. I just starved and slept through the flight.
They lost my baggage, if that can be improved it would be 5 star
More healthy food options.
I love my experience with this airline. The crew was very accommodating and the service was more than excellent. It felt like being home up in the clouds.
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: "Crew very helpful. Seat was very good, food excellent."
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: "Wonderful trip, Super nice Crew , perfect meal , great entertainment system"
Cons: "Can not be topped up"
Pros: "Super friendly crew. Enough food and drink."
Pros: "crew handled the tough crowd well, but were not extremely hospitable"
Cons: "food was disgusting"
Cons: "No complain . It’s singapore airlines and not dirty air India or jet Airways"
Pros: "Seats with entertainment"
Pros: "Great crew and cabin!"
Cons: "Meals were just ok"
Pros: "Crew amazing. Seat super comfortable"
Cons: "Transit time is way too tight. You need at least 2 hrs in between to account for landing and transfer time between terminals"
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "I like everything crew, etc"
Cons: "Nothing reallly"
Pros: "The staff is amazing and know what parents of bubs need."
Pros: "Excellent crew, service and food"
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: "Very comfortable"
Cons: "I don’t see anything I didn’t like"
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: "Consistency of high quality service. Beef goulash in economy was surprisingly good!"
Cons: "Impatient Caucasian passengers trying to squeeze past. Maybe put them further back next time! :-)"
Cons: "The desserts. The bun."
Pros: "Ease of check in, very quick."
Cons: "Older plane, entertainment system incredibly slow, plane needs tidying up, starting to look its age."
Cons: "I took the 777 on my flight to Perth and the seats are so so different from the ones on A330. Don't bother with Business class if you are flying the A330. It's not worth the money."
Pros: "Comfortable, full service through the night.."
Pros: "The cabin crew was great."
Cons: "1. Flight seats are too congested on flight.. 2. Not too many indian movie choices 3. Some reason, while booking the flight, the KAYAK site had not asked for food choice. And the airline does not carry any extra vegetarian food. This had caused some inconvenience."
Cons: "There was not much leg room in the seatings"
Pros: "This time I made the mistake of flying with my kids (4 and 6). The flight or them was last minute (booked less than 8 hours before take off) so there were no pre-planned kids meals etc. The in cabin team were awesome! They made sure they go a choice of meals, that they had things to do, that they were enjoying the flights. This on top of the usual awesome that they have."
Cons: "It's still in Huston. Flying economy isn't the same as flying business but my bank account says I need the cheaper option. Can we please move this flight to DFW instead? :-)"
Pros: "I'm starting to sound like a fan boy but Singapore airlines masks this look easy. Comfortable seat great entertainment, edible food and wonderful in for service team. What's not to like"
Cons: "Had to drive to Huston. Can we get rid of BA and American and just have Singapore handle the flights at DFW?"
Pros: "I've always flown Singapore airlines wherever possible. Standards are unbeatable until this flight..."
Cons: "The dinner was terrible. I am a long time customer of Singapore Airlines and I know where the standard are. The food on this flight was the worst I've seen. The starter (vermicelli) was overly salty, dry and severely undercooked. The main course was acceptable but the portion of chicken was more like side dish not main. Missing sides."
Pros: "everything are okey"
Pros: "The crew of ladies and men where so very gracious and courtly, both to the passengers and each other. My wife and I both took note that the flight attendants were "First Class" with emphasis on class. Exceptionally well groomed, but also conveyed genuine concern and helpfulness and at the same time, real workers, energetic and perky. We are bragging to all our friends about the uplifting cultural demeanor of Singapore Airlines. They should all get a pay raise. I will always remember their wonderful service when thinking about our trip to Frankfurt, Germany. Robert"
Pros: "Entertainment even in economy class was excellent -- tons of movies, games, etc. Cabin crew were friendly. Bathroom was very large."
Cons: "In economy, seating was incredibly tight (very little legroom) and at least in my seat, very little reclining. For a 14 hour flight through the night, it made it very difficult to actually get any rest. Food was OK."
Pros: "Staff are very friendly and good ."
Pros: "Is Singapore Airlines food quality slipping? First time I’ve been really unenthusiastic about it..."
Pros: "SQ always has top quality service and that came through today."
Pros: "Crew, plane, punctuality"
Pros: "The flight attendants are professional, attentive, efficient. One suggestion, they didn't know to offer a nauseous passenger ginger ale. I let them know to give her some and she was very grateful. Also too much food! It's so much better than any other airline but very abundant and I feel bad when I only eat a small portion of the items on each tray. Otherwise great crew, plane, boarding, etc."
Pros: "Customer service and food couldn't be better."
Pros: "everything, excellent job"
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: "Check in and boarding were flawless. The flight left about one hour late. The seats in coach are getting smaller and smaller. I got an aisle seat to have a little extra room (I'm 6'1") only to get hit big time by the food cart (they did apologize). The food was plentiful, but mediocre at best. The flight attendants were working hard, but we're abrupt and tired. Overall, I have three stars, when in the past, flying SA was always a five star experience. It got me back home though. :)"
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: "The food, the seating, the upgrade, the very polite and attentive staff. I thanked them, and for that, they gave me a hand written note and a set of cards. So sweet. Totally worth it to fly Singapore."
Cons: "I didn't like how Vayasan and Singapore airlines telephone check in both claimed they could not upgrade. It was part of the policy/seating I bought. They were wrong, the airlines at San Francisco airport did it without blinking, after checking my visa status."
Pros: "loved the hot towels and the entertainment provided"
Pros: "Very good entertainment system."
Cons: "Food was horrible. No drink service. Old seat."
Cons: "Lower the price and keeping up the good work!!"
Pros: "The departure and arrival times were good in order to sleep the night, and wake up in Tokyo refreshed. Cabin crew were fairly friendly, but not the Cathay of a few years ago."
Cons: "NONE of the business class center seats would recline. This meant in order to recline and get some rest, the crew had to dismantle your seat and release the locks manually. This meant the seat was in that position until time to land. So I had to make a choice to sleep or eat, horrible for CX."
Pros: "Will if you didnt know yet it was horrible. because of the reschedulling i miss my flight from paris to venice and all this flight is boon through you but i couldnt contact cheapflights because you dont handle it. So what do you think??"
Cons: "Well at least you could at least know what happened but instead i still got message from you that my flight was still on for 1235 really are you guys that really dumb??"
Cons: "The flight was three hours late."
Pros: "Crew were friendly and premium economy seats were spacious and comfortable"
Cons: "Clean the toilets more regularly. One time, the floor was wet and not much paper left in the holders."
Pros: "The crew was professional and friendly."
Cons: "No bottled water on the plane. Tap water was lukewarm. A blue light came on constantly in the darkened cabin. Would never fly the airline to Hong Kong again."
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Food was not good"
Pros: "Reasonable leg room in the economy"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 2 hours I could not take on board by carry on luggage because it weighted 10kg. Food service was poor and not well organized"
Cons: "Great service and got back earlier than expected."
Pros: "Overall service"
Cons: "Nothing dpecific"
Pros: "Though a long flight.. love flying with Cathay!! The crew was fabulous!"
Cons: "Wasn’t allowed to book seats until checkin"
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 plane couldn’t take off on time. Delayed arrival at HK and our connecting flight didn’t want to wait for us."
Pros: "Crew provided excellent service, seats were comfortable and food and drinks were great."
Pros: "The crew were friendly and efficient The flight left and arrived on time The plane was clean"
Cons: "The self service check in and baggage drop at Brisbane was not effective, requiring a lot of staff intervention and help"
Pros: "Liked: moive selection. Hagendazs ice cream. Flight went smooth."
Cons: "My check in bag was lost. Hope to get it back in the next few days."
Pros: "The crew is so nice!"
Cons: "Same seat selection issue."
Pros: "Up and down at the right time and place. Great experience."
Pros: "Everything. Great staff, punctual departing yimes, good communications. I have taken many airlines and this is the best if not one of the best. Keep up the great work. Only suggestion I would say is showing what types of foods offered as special meals, menu i mean."
Pros: "I liked the fact that food was offered rather than the typical NA experience where you provide your own."
Cons: "Staff seems distant and uninterested at times."
Cons: "There was a long delay when boarding the connecting flight to SGN and there weren't any clear updates on the flight status. I didn't mind the wait so much but I wish they had announced the current status more clearly."
Pros: "Food is ok."
Cons: "Washrooms are small and dirty."
Cons: "Overall waiting and long flight."
Pros: "We arrived late again."
Pros: "Short stop over"
Cons: "Flight stewardess keeps saying "we don't have this, we don't have that, we run out of it"."
Pros: "1st - boarding at hongkong was a pain. You line up at security just to transfer/transit. Then another line up to get inside the boarding area where they again check your ticket and boarding pass. Then theres another line at the gate where they scan your boarding pass. Just when you think you're done, there's another line right before you enter the plane where they check all the hand carry of the passengers. Overkill! 2nd - the crew - not very friendly at all. I noticed they spent more time chitchatting with the caucasian in front of me than with the rest of the asians around me. No smiles for the passengers - not even when they lined up to say hi and goodbye. They were just going through the motions. When they answered the call lights of the ladies in front and beside me, they were curt and abrupt. It was a good thing i didnt need them for anything. Then i happened to go to the restroom and i saw them chatting among themselves in the back while the bathroom was a mess. 3rd - seats were ok, but were narrower 4th - food was hot but the dinner wasnt appetizing at all - some kind of meatball/mashed potato slush. I could only eat less than a quarter of the entree. The breakfast was ok- egg was ok, the bacon was soggy and the sausage was not salty which was a plus. 5th - a lot of movie choices! Helped pass the time quickly"
Pros: "Great service from flight attendants."
Pros: "Everyone on Cathay pacific is very nice and the food was relatively good. They did everything possible to make this a better flight."
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: "Seats weren't much comfortable."
Cons: "Food wasn't bad but above average."
Pros: "Plane was clean"
Cons: "The crew was uninformed and unobservant to actual conditions in the cabin. They kept the air conditioning on and no one was available to address the situation. People started to take their winter coats out of the overhead bins and sit in their seats with coats on. They spent a significant amount of time repeatedly requesting that the window shades be moved up or down. Frankly, if I buy a window seat I should have the option to look out the window if I'm not disturbing my neighbors."
Pros: "Checkin was a breeze, the flight attendants were great, food was good, seats were comfortable, good selection of movies. What more can you ask for"
Pros: "Food was better than other airlines for economy price. Movie selection quite good as well as other options. Audio was good quality. Liked the maps."
Cons: "Limited leg room."
Pros: "Staff were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The food was atrocious and this was business class. The toilet lights were so dimmed all the time you couldn't see what was going on. Last year we flew business class Cathay pacific from Hong Kong to Melbourne and loved it. This year we decided to fly from Melbourne to Dusseldorf and then from Frankfurt to Melbourne with this airline. Won't be doing that again. Why pay business class fares to be disapointed"
Pros: "I will give 10 out of 10 to Cathay for their excellent service, fast air time, humble crew service and a bonus point for their quality of meals/ food. I am a pure vegetarian & in all my flight the crew made sure that I got the correct food tray & it was not mixed with wrong mean (non veg.) by mistake. Unlike other flight where meal is just an obligation, Cathay made sure that the taste was very nice too. Full points to them. The quality of seats was good & nice leg space as well. Overall the experiance was very pleasant & I highly recommend Cathay Pacific."
Pros: "Happy to have goodnight on the flight. Was scared to fly on such a long flight because I'm a decent sized guy. I was even more afraid when I realized I was out in a middle seat. However, the seats are relatively spacious, even in economy and my knees weren't hitting the back of the seat in front of me. I also appreciated that we could get up to grab water or juice at any time during the flight."
Cons: "Boarding could be more organized."
Pros: "Flight went up and down at the right time and place. Can't ask for much more than that. All else was very nice."
Pros: "Great crew, quick boarding"
Pros: "Everything- I had 3 seats to relax and sleep. The food was excellent for the vegetarian option."
Pros: "Shorter flight airplane much nicer"
Pros: "Seats and service are head and shoulders better than US carriers. Food was good comparatively."
Pros: "Great movies, excellent staff"
Cons: "Ran our it breakfast selection"
Pros: "I actually changed my flight date"
Cons: "I was charged almost three times the amount by the airline than I agreed to pay and what was listed in Kayak.I was charged almost three times the amount by the airline than I agreed to pay and what was listed in Kayak."
Pros: "Check in was efficient. I like that they have generous carry on policy. No checked bag fees. Boarding was quick and easy."
Pros: "Vietnam airlines stands out in SE Asian carriers. Great service and planes leaving and arriving on time."
Cons: "Keep up great service standards"
Pros: "Crew were great. Seating was comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding seems a bit of a crazy process."
Pros: "The flight was quick, limited turbulence, and the crew was very friendly and pleasant to fly with. The only negative was the plane itself."
Cons: "The plane smelt like fresh urine, chemicals, feces, and burning rubber. Simply put, the plane should not be in active rotation. It felt immensely unsafe as the plane rattled and moaned throughout the flight."
Pros: "Crew was accommodating, seat space for economy was generous and comfortable for a 2hr flight."
Cons: "Luggage allowance for economy is only one check-in bag, as opposed to most airlines these days, which give two check-in bags. For the price paid (almost $300) for a return trip to Yangon from HCMC, this is expensive -- and I booked over a month in advance. Should be offering more leverage."
Cons: "Very little. Just a great flight ."
Pros: "Great service from start to finish"
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Delayed with no announcements or explanation."
Pros: "Check in was efficient"
Pros: "It went smoothly from start to finish"
Cons: "Last minute wanted to check our luggage as the plane was boarding and almost caused us to miss our flight. Flight crew unhelpful and not friendly"
Pros: "The guy who sat beside me was flying with a baby. The flight attendants were attentive to the needs of the baby, especially safety-wise."
Cons: "Boarding is very unorganized, and takes so much time. They could probably improve by assigning certain rows to use the front/rear door of the aircraft. For example: rows 1-15 use the front door, and 16-30 use the rear door. That way there’re not too much congestion and waiting on the aisle."
Pros: "Flight was generally ok."
Cons: "No power or USB ports."
Pros: "Was able to buy last minute at airport. food and drinks are fine"
Cons: "delayed by 40mins. but is ok as already informed from morning entertainment is overhead screen aircon not strong"
Pros: "We really enjoy the additional room in Premium Economy. The boarding process and checki in was terrific."
Cons: "Whilst the crew were pleasant today"
Pros: "The food was good as there were selections of either Japanese food or Western food. In flight entertainment was good too with enough selections to choose from. Overalll, the service of crew was satisfying."
Cons: "Flight was delayed a little during departure. Arrival to ho chi minh is not via aerobridge."
Pros: "I arrived on time."
Cons: "The food was horrid and the entertainment system was sub mediocre at st best."
Pros: "Check in was easy, food was decent, there was a TV in each seat"
Pros: "The Premium Economy section is relatively small, and quiet. At check-in, I was attributed a window seat, and the section was fully packed. The company went out of its way to give me an aisle seat. A window seat would have resulted in a badly hurting elbow. The seats in Economy Premium are OK, nice pitch and width : 2+4+2, instead of 3+3+3 in Economy."
Cons: "The seats in Economy Premium have a foot-rest, that is badly designed and badly kept. Nothing to do with the kind they have in Business class. Push the button, it will spring up. This is OK for short people with short legs, like average Vietnamese customers. It is a pain for taller people with longer legs. It takes a lot of strength to push the footrest into its former position. In my seat, two attendants came to my help and could not do it. Something apparently was broken. I spent 13 miserable hours without being able to find a comfortable position for my legs. I strongly suggest to Vietnam Airlines get rid of the footrests altogether, or find an easy-to-manage model."
Pros: "All good"
Pros: "Was good - everything you would expect except the boarding times etc were odd. It asked you to be there at the gate an hour before departure but it only started boarding maybe 10 mins before and didn't give updates about departure delays."
Cons: "No space in the Kayak booking to make meal requests like vegetarian, so ended up starving and without dinner until I got to the city 4 hours after boarding a late flight because VN Airlines didn't have any vegetarian meals on board. I couldn't even eat the salad as they put salmon on it. Cold bread roll and fruit... Kayak need to have at least the most common fields in the booking like vegetarian meal request."
Pros: "late flight from sg,will usually depart on time"
Cons: "they moved to changi terminal 4. Terminal 3 is much better because of train connectivity."
Cons: "The flight was 3 hours late. My seat was wet when we boarded. I’m not sure it was really the crews fault, but still sucked and not a great experience."
Pros: "Well worth the price"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Transit assitance was good, would have been even better if it was highlight after ticket purchase in electronic form"
Cons: "Took too long (more than 1 hour in queue) to check in at Sydney"
Pros: "I choose this flight because of late departure time"
Cons: "no entertainment. no wifi."
Pros: "There was a long line for the Hanoi-Ho Chi Minh flights but with multiple counters devoted to this route alone we were checking in not long after having been dropped off at the airport. We were offered seats on an earlier fight which we eagerly accepted. Knowing that this route is often cited as one of the busiest in the world it was no surprise to find ourselves on a wide-body jet, Airbus 330-200 even on this 2-hour flight. A small snack was served. The flight was uneventful."
Cons: "Food... only could have the fruit"
Pros: "Boarding on the 787 Dreamliner was ok French wine selection was good"
Cons: "Food was average Limited entertainment movies etc Seat was uncomfortable and rocked either broken or poorly adjusted - thrilling on landing!! Staff did their minimum job and that's it no drinks during flight etc strange during a day flight they dimmed the windows to watch movie I hate the offset seating configuration I'm 184cm and it was difficult to stretch out."
Pros: "Unexpected charge of $450 to transfer planes in Vietnam. Worst purchase ever."
Pros: "Bottled water and ample leg room pretty much sums up this short flight from Phu Quoc to SGN."
Cons: "Crew at check-in counter was not friendly or helpful. Even though our pregnancy was documented a week earlier by Vietnam Airlines, she made us go through the same process, though we showed her we had the same form already in our possession."
Pros: "The leg room is one of the best in economy class. At six feet tall, I was able to stretch my legs and not have my knees against the seat in front of us. The personal entertainment console worked perfectly with clear picture and sound, though the free headphones were uncomfortable. Boarding crew allowed us to cut in line since we had a 2 year old. Very appreciative for that, and appreciative for their sternness with those customers who were trying to slip in in front of us."
Cons: "Crew on board came across as a little unfriendly, though professional seriousness might have been mistaken as annoyance. The food was passable, but definitely not quality. Sufficient amount of beverage was served."
Pros: "Was able to change seat to exit row; not crowded; A350 is a really nice plane. Vietnam Airlines has amazingly friendly and helpful crew, extremely pleasant. Catering from Japan is edible. Delta Platinum gives you lounge access in Osaka and HCMC."
Cons: "A/V system was on the fritz for the whole plane; was not activated until 45 minutes into the flight and then kept cutting out for all passengers. I just gave up and slept."
Pros: "Food: good recipes, shoved out hot"
Cons: "Ticketing desk chaotic with apathetic staff; no sense of first-come-first-serve; you have to be firm about people cutting in front of you and be sharp when they open or close the stations. On the plane, crew performs responsibility checklist, not a smidgeon more; no sense of hospitality or gratiousness; cattle car mentality. Blanket received not in a wrapper and smelled of another person. Plane from Singapore late. Bus transit instead of jetway. Bus late; long time standing on plane waiting to exit."
Pros: "Early check in was not a problem and baggage check in weight is great and not paying for it."
Cons: "This flight seems more and more every time we take an econo flight which, should be cheaper then what you get for pricing. No fluff flight only I can see the different is the baggage weight you can take is only the extra. Seem we stayed on the tar mac for a while flying out and flying in Ho Chi which, the air movement in the cabin was not that great at all and little stuffy and warm. One thing leaving out of Term 3 at Singapore if you go thru Immegration and want to eat the food is not great all and stay away from Burger King and for the 3rd time got sick again! Worst Burger Jiont in the World ever! From no soda, the chicken nuggets tasting like fish, and the Burgees did not taste like burger very sickening! Thier are a rip-off to still wanted everyone to pay full price for the a meal and without no drink and pay extra for water and wanted people to pay for ice. Burger King Co. really need to take hard look at this Joint for very bad foods serving people and getting them sick and ripping people off with money. Seats are small and compact and the seat belt for the airline is small for a bigger person and not meaning over weight."
Pros: "The crew was nice, boarding was easy"
Cons: "No entertainment and the business class seat doesn't lay flat all the way."
Pros: "Overall my experience was good. Pros: seat are comfortable. The jet seemed more spacious than ANA airlines. Cons: workers know little English compared to ANA from checking in to the flight attendants. I think this was the most disappointing because the language barrier was frustrating when needing help going the right direction and having questions about checking in. The food was OK. The fruit tasted rotten and the food didn't seem as fresh either. The customer service was also mediocre. When I was on ANA airlines all the staff were very helpful and they seemed statisfied with their jobs. When I travel to ASIA again I will try and avoid Vietnam airlines."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Efficient in time fight in an excellent aircraft B788-9"
Cons: "Oh Food. Again food. I have been being served the same food for more than 10 years. bread and cold meat...!!!"
Pros: "Crew on board was responsive and really helpful with regard of needs of passengers. Food tastes really good. Decent amount of leg room, considering it's economy class."
Cons: "We had a flight at 11am in korea with vietnam airlines heading back to Singapore. We had to queue an hour and a half for our boarding pass and check in, which makes it unbelievable how is that possible. We were there early since 815am, and only got our boarding around 10am. We nearly missed our flight as there were queue all around for security check. I guess this is the first and the last time i will travel with Vietnam Airlines."
Pros: "Small plane and very nice people. Short flight so no food or entertainment to judge. Just hard not to love the Cambodians."
Pros: "The flight had many open seats, the crew helped to board passengers efficiently, the food was plentiful and they even offered wine on a 3 hour flight. It was delightful."
Cons: "There weren't individual entertainment systems."
Cons: "We booked the flight for family of 8 Despite informing them over counter in Narita international airport that to place us at 2 together in the same because we have kid of 8 years and 12 years , we were all allocated separately. We could not do online check in even we log in 24 hours before flight ,all seats shown available is individual. Being in the airport early does not help too. I will definitely not consider taking Vietnam airlines in future n will cautious friends to be aware of such service."
Pros: "The Air France business lounge that Vietnam Airlines use in CDG Airport was excellent. Lots of space a good selection of food. The airline staff where all wonderful and food on the plane was delicious. I like the sleeping pods. Very private and comfortable."
Cons: "I would like a few more recent English movie choices."
Pros: "The usual Vietnam Airlines pleasant effective service ... Maybe not as many bells and whistles as others but then nor is the price"
Pros: "Very attentive to handicapped passengers. Which is me. Yhe flight is short yet they served a light lunch we seemed like a waste to. I had a coke. The plane was clean I love the hostess uniforms. Beautiful and very feminine. Refreshing in today's world"
Cons: "For a short hop I have nothing to suggest. Perfect"
Pros: "No baggage charge, good comfortable plane."
Cons: "It wasn't possible to check baggage through to Yangon despite it being advertised as a connecting flight. Very annoying to have to collect and re check in at HCMC airport while in transit."
Pros: "friendly air crew"
Cons: "limited film and entertainment"
Please change up the food.
Pros: "The "Forward seats" are advertised on airline documents for $20 on regional flight. MNL-SGN is definitely a regional flight, but they charged me $50 for the one seat choice. The comfort is definitely much better. I had guessed it was worth the 20 dollars, but 50 seems a rip-off."
Pros: "Crew was very good. The food was better than most."
Cons: "The toilets should be checked for cleanliness more often, and supplies replenished."
Pros: "Movie selection was ok"
Cons: "Ran out of meals offered me crackers and bread boarding was a mess long delays I will never fly Philippines airline again!"
Pros: "PAL crew, as expected, was good. we arrived sfo ahead of schedule.."
Cons: "i think desserts can be improved"
Pros: "Amazing airplane, pilots and flight stewardess"
Pros: "excellent check in, they accommodated me despite my late arrival due to traffic from an airport transfer from another terminal"
Pros: "The crew was good and professional. Friendly."
Pros: "Entertainment was good and food and snacls"
Cons: "Communication with passengers about the 7 hour flight delay I experienced. We were not given food and drink vouchers"
Pros: "Service was great, took off on time and arrived early"
Cons: "Food was average"
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Boarding could have been more efficient."
Cons: "The terminal for Phillipine airlines is greatly lacking. There are hardly any amenities and unless you get there before 0900 the next connecting flight is not until 2300. There need to be improvements on at least one for us to ever fly this route again."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "Terminal 2 in Manila has very few options for dining and gifts. Plane was late in arriving to Terminal 2; apparently had to offload in Terminal 1, then taxi to Terminal 2, then had to be inspected extensively before we could board. Due to late boarding and ~25 wheelchairs, boarding was disorganized."
Cons: "the business class seats were not comfortable, badly designed. also it seems some staff (i think manager) are just sitting around, only one young guy was really doing all the work."
Pros: "Overall experience and the room in economy was execellent."
Cons: "Seats did not recline very much. Hard. Food was very plain and starchy."
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable and fake leather. Staff were surly."
Pros: "Well organize & very courteous.."
Cons: "So far no complaint"
Pros: "Food was mostly very nice."
Cons: "The Manila transfer process was a waste of time. Why when only transferring through at the airport you must go to an insecure area to get a Manila stamp in your passport and then have to go back into the secure area via another security check."

Cons: "I’m over 6 feet tall and the seating was cramped for someone my size. Full service international flights should have in flight entertainment systems."

Cons: "Delayed flight and suddenly PAL require each one of us to check in our carry baggage."
Cons: "The stewardess as usual they are not friendly as they should be with the passenger, I have been flying with philippines airlines often time hoping the crew will be super smily and friendly, they are cold as ice !"

Pros: "Enjoyed my round trip flight on Philippine Airlines. It was beyond my expectation. Flight crew were very courteous and friendly. I would fly with this airline again"
Cons: "Cluster of passengers waiting to go through boarding the plane at the gate"
Cons: "Flight delayed for 5 hours - Connection from Manila was going to be very close. Flight attendant assured me multiple times they would hold the connecting plane, and give us an escort off the plane to make it to the other gate as fast as possible. We arrive in Manila, and there is no special escort. They take us at a regular pace to a connections desk in the terminal. They delayed helping us so we missed the only other flight leaving that night for Bali. While the person at the transfer desk was supposed to be helping us get new connecting flights, they would stop helping us, and take care of other people that showed up at the desk. It took them 1 1/2 hours to rebook our flight. They tried to put us on a flight that took over 20 hours with connections for a direct flight we had missed that would take about 4 hours of flying. We had to get on Kayak.com ourselves to find a better connecting flight that left the next morning. After 1 1/2 hours, the attendant finally put on a flight that was similar to the one we found but slightly worse. They said they could not work with certain airlines leaving from Manila, which I did not understand. Then, they proceed to tell us to go wait in the terminal overnight for the flight leaving the next day. We had to directly ask them to give us a hotel room for the night, which they did upon our request, but were not going to offer it without us asking for it. I understand delays and missed flights are part of air travel. But we were routinely lied to, ignored, and flat out pushed aside during the rebooking process. It was a completely unacceptable way to treat a customer. Never fly Philippine Airlines if you can avoid it."
Pros: "the seats were comfortable and the staff was very nice"
Cons: "i was business class and had to wait to board for 60 (YES SIXTY) passengers in wheelchairs to board first. And most of those people were ambulating fine before and after. I believe they should have a doctors note. Apparently this is the norm with this airline in Manilla."

Cons: "Flight was a bit warm according to one of my seatmates"
Cons: "I missed it because of the first flight delay"
Pros: "Not so crowded!"
Cons: "Not reclining seat."
Cons: "All four of my flight on Philippines Airlines were over 3 hours delayed. Nothing good about this airline. Horrible food. But the delays were beyond the pale. Do not fly this airline and if you have to, don't have a connecting flight the same day, you WILL NOT make it."
Pros: "Food wasn't too bad, stewards were pleasant but had to wait ages for water. Like the 2 4 2 layout so we didn't have to disturb anyone for "comfort" breaks."
Cons: "Checking in, a few kg overweight, they made us put the excess into our hand baggage, it meant opening our 4 cases, actually moving things which weighs less than half a kg, complete waste of time, over half an hour. Complete waste of time as it's on the same plane FFS. Entertainment via iPads, poor selection of films."
Cons: "Flight is always late Seats are very small no screen at your seat meals are so-so"
Pros: "For group check inc check-in personnel were inflexible. Nearly missed flight despite being in airport 2.5 hours before flight."

Pros: "The staff members were very courteous, and meals were healthy. Nice selection of inflight entertainment."
Cons: "The temperature was very cold. Many people wore jackets and used blankets and we're still cold."
The worst kind of budget airline. To be honest....the plane was not that bad. Would have been good to have some food choices and some water. What was by far the worse is the passengers/customers that this airline attracts. Coughing and spluttering all over one another with no masks. Just disgusting. Pay for a better carrier and get a better class of passenger.
Cons: "More food variety"
Pros: "Very smooth and easy process boarding and taking off"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "A nice experience overall. Flight was quiet so plenty of personal space."

Pros: "The crew are ok. They should find jobs with other, better airlines."
Cons: "Flight delayed on both legs. Delay management horrible, call centre was worse."
Pros: "Average flight"
Cons: "Changed the time of my flight early by more than 2 hours, with no communication. I therefore missed the flight. I was informed there was a flight that evening but they refused to move me as I had booked through an agent. Waited more than 6 hoursnin the airport for next flight and was offered only a meal voucher worth £4. Later flight was delayed, resulting in me missing my friends pre wedding henna party and arriving more than 8 hours late. Not a single apology given!"
Pros: "Except for a 1-hour delay, overall the flight was good, smooth and enjoyable. Loved the inflight meal. For the price we paid we got meal and 30kg baggage allowance, we thought that was just value for money. And they departed from KLIA and not klia2 which is more convenient."
Cons: "Flight wasn't on time to and from HKG."
Pros: "The staff were very kind, the seat had a great amount of leg room."
Cons: "There was no alcohol on the flight."
Pros: "Getting out of the plane"
Cons: "getting in the plane. No working tablet. Poor food."
Pros: "Crews are nice."
Cons: "Seems like Malindo is starting to degrading the service quality. The flight I took before: they change the airplane to batik which was worse with no entertainment, smaller seat pitch, etc. I book Malindo for a reason and paid for what expected using Malindo!! If they had to change the plane they should've given better one or given back compensation to passengers! Now this flight, they didn't activate the entertainment till way later and turned off way too early. They didn't give any earphone as supposed to. Malindo's service has become bad."
Pros: "For the price that we paid, it included 30kg baggage and refreshment (orange juice, water, coffee, a slice of pizza and a muffin) - it was worth it. The legroom is spacious, the seat was comfortable and the cabin crew was awesome. Flight was on time, check in was acceptable (considering people travelling from Bandung has a lot of check in baggage due to shopping)."

Cons: "The crew doesn't smile most of the time, sometimes they sound like ordering when they request something. The movies selection is either old, or mostly Indian movies."
Pros: "In flight meal."
Cons: "Got told luggage would go straight to bali from origin in Nepal. Waited at baggage check in jarkata just in case. Sure enough, our baggage comes out. Transfer to domestic terminal was almost impossible since we were given no information and our flight number changed completely. All of a sudden it was batik air not malindo, which has a completey different terminal. Will not be travelling with malindo again."
Pros: "Check in and boarding we're both quick and easy. There were unsold exit row seats on our flight and the flight attendants lets us change seats. The in flight meals were quite tasty."
Cons: "The beverage options were limited and mostly consisted of different flavors of fruit soda. The flight attendants sprayed the cabin with a strange aerosol before landing. Trash was not collected during the flight."

Cons: "No on-flight meal available to purchase. It's lunch time and the airline expected everyone had lunch before?!? 15 minute delay, understandable. Seat pocket was not cleaned, someone spilled chocolate drink before and the cleaning service missed to do the job."
