Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Cons: "The screens had pretty bad resolution"
Cons: "What i did not like most is the temperature inside the plane but am glad the airline provided blanket to warm our body."
Cons: "My flight from LA was delayed so my checked bag did not get transferred in time to come through with me from Taipei to Bangkok."
Pros: "The made it easy to travel with a young child"
Pros: "Boarding process has improved (SYD), the crew were friendly and attentive, my special meal (Indian vegetarian for something different) was quite tasty and even the entertainment options were good."
Cons: "Business class seats on the B747 - unless you’re sitting upright, they are one of the most uncomfortable seats I’ve experienced. TG either need to upgrade the seats on the B747 (very unlikely) or put another aircraft type the BKK-SYD-BKK route."
Pros: "Good friendly staff. Good flights"
Cons: "Food wasn’t good. Movies selection is not good."
Pros: "Plane was nice."
Cons: "Food was horrible"
Pros: "Flight was full, but generous seat pitch and efficient crew made the difference!"
Pros: "Typical domestic coach flight experience... but the price was right. Had good personal tv entertainment available... but it was a short flight. Bring your own ear-phones."
Cons: "I was expecting some yummy Thai Food, but the food was strange. I eat everything... and I ate this food, but it was not good. The other 4 members of my family would not touch it. 2nd worst plane food in 200+ flights."
Pros: "Quick & efficient boarding but cost cutting has taken the shine off what used to be a quality airline experience."
Cons: "I’m not fussy about food, but the menu today was about as uninspiring as they come. Along with polite but perfunctory service and a seat that is nothing better than premium economy, I don’t know how they can get away with calling their business class product, Business Class!"
Cons: "Crew could have been a bit friendlier"
Pros: "Nothing! The plane left late and while waiting, the airco blastwd like a freezer. My feet and gands became numb and I got a terrible headache. Next, a chinese couple with a 1 year old toddler came to sit next to m: the child started wailing immediately and this lasted until 5 min before landing. It was like they had not a clue on how to handle a child and they had nothing to make it drink or suck or distract it. Worst flight in ages.."
Pros: "Baggage did not make connection to Phuket."
Pros: "Nice crew. Good food. Arrived safely."
Cons: "I waited in line for 90 minutes to check my bag. Pace of that line moved extremely slowly. I fly frequently. Other airlines are more efficient. Delay 45 Min. in taking off. Delay upon arrival as we waited for what must have been 30-45 min for a people transporter to take us to our gate. I was at the back of the plane and I swear it seemed like they only had one bus making the (long) journey back and forth. All told I arrived over two hours late to my destination for reasons that are likely poor business design. Not a great experience."
Pros: "Very efficient and attentive service . On time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Old aircraft, 747 , seats very comfortable but no flat beds.. Choice of movies but mostly second grade."

Cons: "Not one thing was out of place...great flight."
Pros: "Everything ok But just Ok"

Cons: "The trip was long but that was my own issue of course"
Pros: "Absolutely great"
Pros: "The seats and the crew. Snack menu. Baggages allowance. Co-operative staffs."
Pros: "The entertainment collection is good although I was working and did not watch it. There was no wifi offer on the flight. I am happy to pay but there is none. There are a lot of toilet stalls which is the best thing about this flight. I guess the compliment goes to the engineer or designer who decide this Boeing then."
Cons: "I found the airline has a double standard and treats people with different races differently. I am Thai and was travelling with two seniors (my parents). We checked in together but they put me in another row when the same row with my parents are vacant (two seats left). My mother seat's was an aisle seat and the air condition was stronger than other seats. The flight attendance did not do anything so my father switched his seat with hers. No one came to ask if my mother still feel cold or if my father ever feel anything. There was another Westerner who also felt cold. The flight attendance came to ask him several times how he felt and was trying very hard to accommodate him with great empathy. Then the person who sat next to me could not decide what she would like to have for dinner. There were pork and chicken option. The lady chose pork at first, opened the cover, closed it and returned it to the flight attendance asking for chicken option. The flight attendance gave the opened dish to my father. I did not tell my father and I felt very bad. I think the lady next to me was disgusting, the flight attendance was disgusting and ill responsible to the customer's well being. I think this is a very poor professional ethic. It was raining when we landed and we needed to take a shuttle to the gate. A perfect flying experience after a long trip!!! I fly long distance quite often but rarely chose Thai Airway. Every time I fly with Thai Airway, there will be something that makes me feel horrible to be born as a Thai. This will be my last time flying with Thai Airway. TG 665 Shanghai - Bangkok Seat 31 B and C please do not show any option for Thai Airway the next time I search for a flight!!!"
Pros: "I love the food especial Thai food. The air craft crew are very helpful."
Cons: "My friend request for extra ice cream and the crew rejected her with very loud tune."
Pros: "The flight was perfect from beginning to end, smooth flight, excellent service, clean plane, comfortable seat and best of all not crowded."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the flight has Chinese tour groups. They are noisy and no manner. BTW, cabin crew handle them very well."
Pros: "Easy check-in, friendly, helpful attendants, on-time departure and arrival.."
Cons: "My seat back wouldn't lock in place. Every time I would move or lean, the seat back would shift. My phone and book wouldn't stay in the pocket in front of me. They would fall out of the bottom and onto the floor. I love Thai food, but food on the flight was not good at all; bland and unappetizing. My foot became pinched hard against the food cart during meal service."
Pros: "First class airline"
Cons: "decor inside plane looked a little dated"
Pros: "Forgot my tablet in the pocket of my seat on my flight from Bangkok to Kathmandu and didn't notice until I was packing to return 5 days later. When I checked in to return to Bangkok, they had me flagged in the system for a lost item. Not only did they have my tablet but everyone from the airline staff to airport security knew about the incident and was happy to get my tablet back to me."

Pros: "Seat was very comfortable and to my liking. Will always fly Thai Airways"
Cons: "I liked everything and was a fantastic experience to fly Thai Airways"
Pros: "There was no provision of snacks for vegetarians.we being members of frequent flyer club should have been treated with care and air hostess curtly responded only chicken and nothing else Felt as if we were beggars in expecting hospitality.Giving one star as zero star not possible.Will think twice before flying again with the said airlines again."
Pros: "Faultless in every way...."
Cons: "Parents that cannot (prefer not to) keep their children under control!!! Expecting the lovely Thai staff to do it for them..."
Pros: "H good"
Pros: "This flight and seat was definitely more comfortable than going to HongKong- space was ver cramped before."

Pros: "Crew and all other Staff were very helpful and friendly"
Cons: "Don’t know"
Cons: "Food was below average"

Pros: "CX crews are professional as they are very customer oriented"
Cons: "The ground services in Melbourne airport was really bad! Chaotic arrangements for boarding and especially unpleasant staffs!"
Pros: "Easy check in and bag drop, staff available when help was needed. Felt comfortable enough to check myself in as every part of precessions was made clear"

Pros: "not too bad"
Cons: "not too bad"
Pros: "Crew on leg from Melbourne to Hong Kong terrible - Hong Kong to Boston good"
Cons: "Put a Priority tag on our luggage; Have the Pasta meal for someone sitting in the second row of Premium Economy and then let me eat the economy meal that you substituted instead of interrupting me four times to give me the Premium Economy meal that you said you didn't have. Use a plane other than th"

Cons: "The further delay made us arriving Hong Kong at midnight. We reach home at 1.30am."
Cons: "I checked in online, printed the boarding passes as I know japan probably isn’t ready for phone apps for checking in. When I went to the counter, despite being the one holding all the documents (and having organized the whole travel itinerary, the staff only spoke to my husband (Whi hadn’t a clue about the journey) in Japanese. They proceeded to check us in on their computer and insisted that we use their paperwork, not mine. What a farce. What a waste of paper and my time."
Pros: "The movie selection + the crew was friendly."
Cons: "There were kids who were not well behaved. Their parents would not correct them, neither did the crew. There was a kid screaming and talking very loud behind me, while everyone was sleeping. I was unable to sleep on the flight, even with ear plugs. The kid sitting next to me was getting Play-doh everywhere, on me, the floor and all over the seats. He was also kicking the seat in front of him and his mother would not correct him. It would be helpful for the crew to say something to the parents, as some parents do not believe in discipline. The vegan food was very good on the flight to Hong Kong, but on the flight to Chicago it was bland. I was still very hungry after eating + did not get protein in the first meal. With the seat in front of me reclined all the way back, my knees were touching the back of the seat, my legs were swollen and in a lot of pain after the flight."

Cons: "Continues to be incinsistent and spotty service."
Cons: "Flight was late. I understand that there could be unexpected problems. But please do not say that due to 'operational reasons'. Sounds like BS. Tell us he actual reason. Arrived late, engine problems, passenger missing, etc."
Pros: "The new airplanes have usb plugs and had more pockets on the seat in front of you to place small personal items such as glasses, etc. Appreciated the crew’s offer for assistance when my lap toddler had a tantrum mid flight."
Cons: "Inconsistent with what was offered for the children. One flight provided food , juice and toiletries for my infant. The long haul flight didn’t give anything at all. I just had my lap toddler and my toddler share food since my toddler couldn’t finish all the food provided."
Pros: "Food and flight attendants"
Pros: "Everyone that was part of the Cathay Pacific team was so friendly and helpful. They were very accommodating and quick to assist me outside the typical meal and drink service times.

Pros: "Great crew, great service"

Cons: "How about some new Hollywood release please"
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: "There wasn't much to note. uneventful and ok service"
Cons: "There wasn't much to complain"
Pros: "Travelling with a 1 yr old, the extra leg room and space in the bassinet seats was appreciated. Service and help from staff was outstanding. Recommend for travelling with young children. Minimises the pain!"

Pros: "I managed to miss my flight in Hong Kong (my mistake) and Cathay managed to get me onto the next flight. Thanks Cathay!"

Pros: "Great crew, quick boarding"

Pros: "Quiet, warm water in bathroom sink. Movies"

Pros: "Great service, very polite and concerned with the passenger's well being."
Cons: "Nothing needed to be changed. It was a good flight and I had a good experience."
Pros: "The crew did fine and the food was OK."
Cons: "There was almost no information about what was happening with the delays. You need to do a better job of disseminating information. The food voucher was nice but it was all word of mouth among the passengers. To have a 5 hour delay is tough. You should have better charging facilities at your gates. You could only stand and charge and the plugs were all Hong Kong/English specific. Nothing universal about those plugs. I had to borrow an adapter to charge my laptop during the delay. The spicy fish dish tasted like it had been fouled during the delay. I like spicy fish generally but this tasted tainted."
Cons: "Flight delayed in take off twice. Then diverted via Manila. Not ideal."
Pros: "I have tried united and delta and for the price this is the best."
Cons: "there was no vegetarian food booked for me (as usual) even though i mentioned it while booking also sent an email 3 days before the flight to vayama agency, asking to confirm vegetarian meal, luggage allowance and connection i hong kong.. vayama replied few days after plane took off from melbourne. i also didnt have a chance to have a window seat, that was my preference and couldnt sleep during all flights at all. i wouldnt choose cathay pacific again. their crew was not helpful at all."
Pros: "The food is great"
