Pros: "good flight"
Cons: "food is ok"

Pros: "I enjoyed everything! My first flight was a little over 10 hours, but it didn't feel that way. I was very comfortable and the crew took very good care of all of the passengers. Japan Airlines is Ichi Ban!!!"

Cons: "Tv stopped working suddenly."

Pros: "The staff"

Cons: "Airplan so old and ac not work super hot."

Pros: "The crew was always super polite and looked very professional and overall just great. The food was delicious, though the portions are small haha. I had my time behind and I was super late to boarding but the crew came looking for me and they were super nice. Definitely recommend them. Miles better than China Airlines and any of the USA based airlines too. The movie selection was pretty good and the seats were roomy and comfortable."

Pros: "Cabin staff. Special meal. Cleanliness."

Pros: "I didn't expect neck pillow on board"
Cons: "Seat wilder would be great"

Pros: "Once again the service from the flight attendants was perfect."

Pros: "Food was really good!!! It was way"

Pros: "Service was excellent."
Cons: "Seat felt stiff but felt well rested after flight"

Pros: "The good: The food was tasty given we were on an airplane. Better entertainment selection than my AA flight to Japan. I prefer the 3-3-3 seat layout to the 2-5-2 because even though I had a middle seat there was only one person to get past in either direction."
Cons: "The bad: The plane was warm. I understand some people get cold, but since blankets are provided I would much prefer a colder plan than a warmer one. The warmth made it hard to sleep, which is a big problem on an overnight flight. JAL does not provide individual air vents to passengers seated where I was. I understand the reason for this, but I wish there was some way to get more comfortable. The seats were standard airline economy seats, roomy enough and with enough legroom for my sub-6-foot frame, but not the most comfortable."

Pros: "The service, food, entertainment, everything was perfect. Thanks so much"

Pros: "Japan airport is big and too much shopping needs to be done, and liked the fact that boarding started just 15 minutes before departure which gave me ample amount of time."
Cons: "Movie selection wasn't the greatest. The mid-flight meal was a burger instead of the beloved ramen."

Pros: "Comfortable plane, good service"

Pros: "The aircraft was a new 787 and very comfortable. Uneventful flight."

Pros: "Great customer experience is what look for in any service, ANA delivers this in abundance."

Pros: "I was surprise that even it was a short 2/3 hour ride there was still food being served. A very nice Japanese breakfast. - smaller plane, bus that picked us up and dropped us off in front of the airport. As we were doing a 12 hour layover, all our check in luggage was taken care of and sent to van"
Cons: "At our first checkin from Korea Ana, seems we have to look at a screen for our luggage just to double check that they made it past customs (never had to do that before) - check in was a bit longer compare to yvr their scanner was much smaller so definitely can’t have big carry on"

Pros: "The crew was attentive and continuously coming around with beverages to ensure everyone is hydrated. Excellent service"
Cons: "Seats are cramped and small"

Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice"
Cons: "Movies on board need upgrade"

Pros: "Honestly everything went really well. Like the title say, it was easy booking, a great price, and I got some wonderful memories to bring home."

Pros: "I enjoy ANA and choose to fly with them, normally a good flight"

Cons: "The decent into Japan was pretty steep. It made me feel a bit sick and I never get motion sickness. Hardest decent I've ever had and I travel every 2 years. The ascent was excellent though and the flight in general was perfect."

Pros: "I got a great value for money ticket from KAYAK, TQ!! ANA is an excellent airline, better service, better leg rooms and cuter crew members than than SQ!!"
Cons: "In flight meal could be improved"

Pros: "The food and staff were great."

Pros: "More space than usual between chairs. Crew is friendly."
Cons: "Food was too smelly. Good quality, but airplane food cannot be smelly or it get really unpleasant inside the cabin. Flight attendant need to learn and practice English. Very difficult to understand."

Pros: "I like the way the stewardesses treating all passengers especially economy class- very professional , attentive to needs and service with great smile- overall wonderful experience and to think I had never heard of this airline prior to flying it for the first time was very impressionable for me"
Cons: "The in flights entertainment was a little limiting to me- but with the great service by crew- it didn't matter so much . But a little more wide variety could go a long way - or more new releases"

Pros: "Staff are super kind."
Cons: "---"

Pros: "ANA is one of our favorite airlines. Consistently great service, if not occasionally a little too 'rule centric'... but it's Japan, and that's why it's so nice and clean and everything works perfectly... :)"

Cons: "Full capacity ! Because of CODE SHARING ? = One Airplane for 2-Airline's Customers."

Pros: "People the staff was nice and tried to be helpful"

Pros: "Crew are nice, helpful and polite"
Cons: "Airport problems turned it into a very long flight. We circled around Narita for hours"

Pros: "Comfortable seats and leg room, especially for Economy. Staff was very helping and friendly. Entertainment selection provided enough options to find something of interest. Flight crew was outstanding keeping the flight punctual."
Cons: "Limited food and drink options, and was disappointed when both things I tried to order from the first meal serving were out of stock."

Pros: "Legroom is good, you don't need to recline the seat"
Cons: "Food wasn't the best"

Pros: "ANA has been running a top notch game recently. NRTcanbea mess particularly if you're transitioning due to security, but ANA does a good job with the passengers, food and flight."
Cons: "Would like to listen to ATC"

Pros: "Service was great."
Cons: "Seats had a lot less leg room than a typical plane and, really, the food could have been better."

Pros: "My flight was really comfortable, thanks"
Cons: "The thing I didn't like it was when I was in Tokyo I stayed overnight I didn't know what I expected for first timer like me I wish they give me some kind of a voucher food, nothing big but I really like in Tokyo though thanks"

Pros: "Efficent, courteous and reliable."
Cons: "Nothing in particular."

Pros: "Very comfortable"

Pros: "I slept most of the way home so didn`t use the entertainment."

Pros: "ANA staff are generally well trained (but are you really allowed to land with your laptop open on your lap as some people were?) ... good service overall, good movie selection, food varies from OK but boring to very good indeed ."
Cons: "Both meal A and B selections would have caused problems for people with shellfish allergies. One was a seafood doria so they have me the other meal. The other had a sauce with seafood extract in the ingredients. I can read Japanese so didn't eat it, but there wasn't any English information on it."

Pros: "The service is first rate even in economy seating. Attentive flight crew. Excellent airline."

Pros: "Attentive crew"
Cons: "Landing was rough and bumpy"

Pros: "Staff was friendly, Aircraft was clean and tidy."
Cons: "Food was poor, there was no space, even domestic flights have more space than this one.!!"

Pros: "The flight crew were very pleasant. The food was excellent. There we nice options for movies."

Pros: "Not a single thing. I will be talking to a reporter about this since they are interested in the story"
Cons: "I left 3 hours early from my hotel. This was my first time ever being in the Philippines so I did not fully grasp the amount of traffic. I arrived at the check in counter with 52 minutes to spare and they told me I could not board. The plane wasnt even boarding passengers yet. I even went as far as to say that I would leave my luggage as I had to get on the flight. They did not allow this either. They said that I would need to get on another flight. To add insult to injury they did not credit me with ANY of what I had purchased for my previous flight since I ordered through Kayak. I am 100% dissatisfied with ANA and I am asking kayak to rectify what they have done. I have already emailed ANA upper management and will be taking this to social media, the news, and any other outlet I can find. I had to pay for a hotel, miss 2 days of work and pay for a 700 dollar "premium" seat ticket since that was all they claimed they had. I find that last part funny, since I saw about 12 empty seats on my flight. I am hoping to hear from kayak so they can explain why they do business with a company that clearly does not care about it's customers."

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: "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: "The staff was amazing"

Pros: "The crew were excellent"
Cons: "Seats and leg room not as comfortable as older plane. The entertainment system was confusing to use ( again older model) hence not as user friendly."

Pros: "Crew were really lovely and friendly. A bit of spacee on the plane which always helps"
Cons: "Nothing Better than average flight"

Pros: "All crew members are very friendly and helpful, good service."
Cons: "All over flight i feel good time, i don't feel boring all friendly staff, good service choice of food i like."

Cons: "Entertainment including games such as backgammon, black Jack, and poker are not available although they are on every other airline I used with high quality game programs that are clos to live games"

Pros: "Crew amazing. Seat super comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing!"

Cons: "The layover in Singapore was a nightmare with insufficient hotel accommodation, nothing but Asian food and overly officious security staff."

Pros: "Well organized boarding, friendliness of staff, food service"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by about an hour."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Nothing beats Singapore SQ!"

Cons: "Excellent flight service no"

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 attentiveness of the flight attendants and the new plane."

Pros: "Again friendly and efficient staff and a smooth flight. Best features of Singapore Airlines."
Cons: "The business class seats were smaller than I thought and not so comfortable as the 777. The seats are hard and ungiving and when you sleep on them you really feel it. Plus the flatbed lay out meant you were basically lying in a question mark position, not so goof for tall people like my husband. The food was good but uninteresting and I think for an overnight flight there should be more smaller,lighter, non spicy options offered rather that full dinners."

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! :-)"

Pros: "Spacious and comfortable bed."
Cons: "The food wasn't that great. Average at best."

Pros: "It's not the cheapest way to fly but it's a great way to cross the Atlantic. Seats are big enough for 2, really. Lay flat beds make the night crossing east tolerable. You really can get several hours sleep. The cabin crew is outstanding, patient, and extremely responsive to requests. Two meals served were excellent. Entertainment choices were complete. After a number of flights in Economy on other airlines I'm spoiled by Singapore Airlines and also by Business Class. And their fares seemed much less than others for the JFK to FRA route. Had no idea this level of luxury existed on an airplane."
Cons: "My seat assignment was moved without explanation on our return flight, FRA to JFK. That was disappointing. The gate folks were apologetic but no real explanation given."

Cons: "The plane was freezing - absolutely freezing. Too cold. There were not enough fluids given out. Given we could not even take water brought in the airport into the plane there needed to be regular distributions of fluids on the flight as there was on the flight from London toy Singapore. It is a long flight and being dehydrated on a plane is not a good thing."

Pros: "Efficient, comfortable."

Pros: "Ease of check in, very quick."
Cons: "Older plane, entertainment system incredibly slow, plane needs tidying up, starting to look its age."

Pros: "Nothing"
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: "Great service and comfort."
Cons: "Food was bland and breakfast availability was a joke. On any flight, passengers do not want spicy or evening meals, and having a limited amount number of breakfasts available was not amusing. The crew had done 5 rows and we were 6 row from kitchen and they had run out ."

Pros: "The crew were excellent"
Cons: "I'm 6'2" and the regular economy seats didn't give me enough to leg room"

Pros: "Comfortable, full service through the night.."

Pros: "I liked the space I had to stretch out, 3 seats to myself in economy enabled me to get some solid sleep between meals. The crew werebalways very polite and friendly."

Cons: "Seats in economic class are not too contraint in space, food was good and entertainment system quite nice with large si play screen and large movie selection"

Pros: "All the crews were friendly and helpful!"
Cons: "I wanted to watch Hindi movies with subtitles..."

Pros: "I’ve flown with a lot of airlines in every class. This was an economy class flight and still the food was better than I’ve received in business class on American. The seat was comfortable, the entertainment options varied and extensive and the cabin team were amazing. They clean the bathrooms between uses. Seriously how do other airlines still exist?"
Cons: "No free upgrade? ;-). But that’s unreasonable. I love this airline having not flown with them for 4 years I don’t understand why!"

Pros: "Service is the best among the airlines I’ve ever taken"
Cons: "Never ever get free upgrade"

Pros: "The service from the ground crew and cabin crew are very professional. Friendly and very helpful."

Pros: "Friendliness and efficiency of crew. Comfortable seats and in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Not much. This airline is up there with the best."

Pros: "Friendliness and efficiency of crew. Comfortable seats and in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Not much. This airline is up there with the best."

Pros: "Everyone was cold asking for blankets it was freezing on that plane only major complaint, I love the airlines, the flight attendants are lovely and gracious, they really do try. Such a nice treat after flying United airlines all year!"
Cons: "Too cold"

Pros: "Can't think of. We have been using Singapore Air for years and they were good. However, our recent few flights with them have been disappointing (hence the need for this review) - there's nothing to be happy about."
Cons: "Writing on behalf of my wife. All staff that she met have sour face, perhaps to signal the passengers not to approach them? True enough, the cabin crew did not help her to place her bag in the luggage compartment; the cabin crew did not serve water when requested, and on second attempt, the cabin crew told her to request at the ground. The cabin crews she has encountered clearly expressed their unwillingness to serve with their face and action. Is this the new direction of Singaore Air? The entertainment system requires installation of an app, hence is practically useless since we do not have the app preinstalled in our device."

Pros: "Great flight and entertainment options, friendly crew, free wine :)"

Pros: "The staff are so friendly and helpful. Highly recommend travelling with the airline. The A380 is a great way to travel with more space in economy. I booked seats on the upper deck where there is a smaller economy cabin. Makes you feel a bit more civilised up the top!"
Cons: "Economy class isn't great for a long haul flight but the staff make it much more bearable."

Pros: "SQ always has top quality service and that came through today."

Pros: "Food, movies, support, were all wonderful."

Pros: "the flight time was quick , by the time you took off you practically were preparing for landing"
Cons: "nothing disappointing"

Pros: "The seat comes with foot rest attached to the front seat."
Cons: "I asked for decaf coffee and the attendant totally forgot about my request."

Pros: "The crew and inflight food and entertainment was good. The person on the transfer desk was very helpful."
Cons: "We were unable to use the website to check-in online, which meant we had to fly to Manchester to check-in. Which is very poor given modern technology. (We were able to check in on line for the flight from Houston)"

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: "Everything on time."
Cons: "Nothing really bad one food on return flight not great but ok."

Pros: "Good service as usual."

Pros: "Crew was great. Boarding was efficient and timely."
Cons: "Vegetarian fare was much less than satisfactory. The only meal i enjoyed was the Indian vegetarian meal."

Cons: "Plane is old and tired. Not what Singapore Airlines is famous for."

Cons: "Just because I have bought my ticket on points I was not given a chauffeur driver."

Pros: "Crew helped me with a chamomile to help me sleep."
Cons: "It was quite good"

Pros: "Unprofessional crew member how to treat as GOLD member in business class cabin"
Cons: "No comment"

Pros: "I was happy with all aspects of the flight"

Pros: "I had my seat changed due to my injured leg, staff acted swiftly, flight was relaxing."
Cons: "They ran out of options on the food and considering it wasn't a full flight that surprised me."

Pros: "Comfort. Service. Cleanliness. Efficiency. Hassle-free."
Cons: "Very small plastic cups of water. On-board on call crew service was slow."

Pros: "Loved the spaciuos seats and great leg room. Food superb!"
Cons: "Annoying passenfer who peobably drank too much"

Pros: "Breakfast portions were too small, and choices were not great. Boarding procedures were a little chaotic due to small space, and ground staff was not very polite when ordering passengers to board."

Cons: "Child kicking seat from behind for entire flight"

Pros: "Ditto......great"

Cons: "Airplane to late"

Cons: "Boarding from connecting flight was manic, gate closing as we arrived only to then sit on the plane for about 40 mins before it moved. Extra leg room seats at extra cost are near toilets and watching the comings and goings from there is not pleasant. Staff ok but nothing special, left waiting with forms for lost luggage, little explanation. Plane decor looks tired, seats narrow. Luggage lost. Know why I like to fly Thai airways"

Cons: "Crew staff"

Pros: "Lots of selection in movies"
Cons: "There was a glitch on the entertainment system and the staff tried to reset with no luck. Our row and the back row was affected and we could not watch anything on the screen for a good 2 hrs of the flight. Boarding was rather disoriented. The ground crew did not give clear instructions to control the crowd."

Pros: "Great and friendly cabin crew. Lots of movies to chose. Food was great."
Cons: "All was great"

Pros: "Emirates leg was good. Easy checkin and I think slightly large than usual seats."
Cons: "I bought a return from Emirates with the returning flight from Australia to London as a code share with Qantas. Qantas does not honour the e-ticekts from Emirates and will NOT allow you to preselect seats online. You have to hope for a good seat at airport checkin. Too bad, as I would have been prepared to pay extra for a seat upgrade."

Pros: "The journey ending"
Cons: "The length of travel!"

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "To be honest I liked everything with this flight"
Cons: "I didn't get upgraded to business or first class ;) Maybe next time though"

Pros: "Good service, great crew, comfortable seat and pitch."
Cons: "The food was mediocre compared to usual standards."

Pros: "Travelled Business Class - a great experience."
Cons: "Slow to board."

Pros: "The plane was spacious and we had really good seats , next to the toilet and wall in front of us. Super, as we were traveling with a toddler and he was able to sit on the floor in front of us and play with his toys. Food came out promptly and was tasty. Loved the goodies for the kids, little blanket and scotch pad."
Cons: "The delay in boarding! It’s hard work when traveling with a toddler."

Pros: "Price, comfort, ice, food and drinks"
Cons: "I just don’t like discomfort of others moving their seat back."

Pros: "Very comfortable flight in A380"
Cons: "Boarding at Melbourne was late and somewhat shambolic. Flight attendants did their job but not with enthusiasm or friendliness. Emirates flight attendants seem to have lost some of their enthusiasm and friendliness."

Pros: "The service, food and boarding were all excellent. It brought back the joy of flying like what used to know in the 80s."
Cons: "None"

Pros: "The food was good and the service was great. I also had a great seat in the front row."
Cons: "We were delayed by over 2 hours We had no where to park when we landed so we had to wait for buses to take us toche terminal There was no new and exciting movies that excited me"

Pros: "Good space for economy class"
Cons: "Announce duty free on flight is closing soon so if interested to purchase last min pls check with crew...by the time you get hold of crew I find out it’s closed - all in 5 mins, from the time I saw message and spoke with crew member it was shut. Should give a little more time on announcements, enough to get a crew member and see products to purchase."

Pros: "Awesome plane, lovely cabin crew, overall went above and beyond to make it as best a flight they could for us! I will definitely fly (and prioritise) emirates as a preferred airline from now on."

Pros: "The planes are always beautiful, clean and atmospheric. The staff is always polite and friendly, and well put together. Never have I ever had a bad experience with Emirates."

Pros: "Extremely quiet plane since they placed people in front of the half empty plane. Great plane food and internet access, limited to text but still incredibly useful to text people from the air."

Pros: "Vego food was provided Lots of meals"
Cons: "Some of the food wasn't as tasty but it's airplane food"

Pros: "Enerttainment"
Cons: "Got moved to right near the galley and crew talked loudly complaining about people, during sleeping time and the light was too bright to sleep. Limited vegan food available. Everything seemed too much trouble for a lot of staff, they were rude and impolite. Delay boarding in singapore."

Pros: "So roomy on the a380 Vegetarian food great"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Fanatics"

Pros: "Comfortable seat Hostesses were professional and very service oriented - not forgetting your request. Service with a smile Very sooth flight"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Attentive service, had a special treat for me as it was my birthday."

Pros: "Quick online check-in and bag drop-off at the airport. Friendly cabin crew. Juices etc. offered in between meal/snacks"
Cons: "Delayed take-off from Singapore once we had boarded-an hour just waiting to taxi. Delayed landing at Dubai due to volume of air traffic. This meant a very quick transfer to the London flight and no helpful assistance from cabin crew even though I asked for assistance, I had to hail a buggy down at the airport otherwise we would not have made it to our flight as I would not have been able to walk that far in the time available. If the flight had landed on time then there would not have been a problem."

Pros: "Food better than average"
Cons: "Poorly designed economy seat. Unusable wifi."

Pros: "Very comfortable flight. Had a few hours sleep also. Very happy."

Pros: "Staff Seats Food Cleanliness Good destinations"
Cons: "Boarding process is retarded. They do way too much, too many steps, too many checkpoints, stairs, hallways, people checking tix. Too much tea and not bringing the customer what they've asked for."

Pros: "Probably the loveliest airline in the sky today"

Pros: "Excellent entertainment on a comfortable sized tv screen."
Cons: "More beverages would be nicer."

Pros: "Did not get drinks at all until dinner was erred which was over 2 hours into the journey. May have been ok if I hadn't just run from a late arriving connection to make this leg of my flight and I was so thirsty!! Naturally they were out of what would have liked for my meal. However the worst part is that Mt luggage didn't make it to Heathrow with my flight and the service in trying to get my bags back has been shocking. Considering I was told my bags would be arriving in London 2 hours later I still do not have my bage in my possession- a day and a half later. And trying to get to talk to someone to help. This has been so frustrating and disappointing."

Pros: "Check-in was efficient and staff were extremely helpful. Flight itself was comfortable, food was actually tasty, and in-flight entertainment was great. Overall an amazing experience compared to US carriers."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit disorganized."

Pros: "On that route the plane can be quite empty on the Melbourne-Singapore leg, meaning lots of space to sleep in coach."
Cons: "Food served very fast (I barely had my first bite that they came with coffee and tea and never seen again). Quality of the food was ok."

Pros: "Comfortable cabin, attentive crew, if somewhat aloof. Food okay, but better than a 2 ounce package of salty pretzel mix for $3! All in all, quite good."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind."

Cons: "Very quiet pleasant atmosphere on board, lovely staff, great food, all in all a pleasant experience"

Cons: "There was a delay"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Great service and comfortable ride excellent staff"
Cons: "Cannot expect better service"

Pros: "Most of it was of a reasonable standard."
Cons: "Plane was full"

Pros: "Business class on the 737 is somewhat basic compared to Virgin Australia's A330, but you still get the same great service, and the food is terrific."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The crew was maybe average, that was still the best point."
Cons: "Extremely tight space. The food was almost inedible. Awful."

Pros: "The crew were very attentive, they tried hard to help me with comfort, drinks etc. I didnt have food as it was so good in the Virgin Clubhouse!"
Cons: "The bed! When you flip it flat its rock hard, and the matress they provide is useless! Need foam matress to really make it more comfotable. If the seat reclined another few inches i wouldnt bother flipping it."

Pros: "I like the professional approach of the airline and the staff. Seats are really comfortable and i did not need my sleeping pillow at all as the headrest of my seat was already so comfortable."
Cons: "There is not much which i did not like about this airline. Just like other airlines, now have started feeling that Economy class travellers are being approached with bit biased approach in hospitality though they have major contribution in meeting flight running expenses. All airlines should start considering this fact and improve the overall approach."

Pros: "The airplane was quiet My seat did not recline, but was seated in a different place where the seat reclined Bathrooms were clean and plenty"
Cons: "The remote controls for the entertainment system That you can’t reach the vents when you have to be buckled"

Pros: "A smoothtrip run by great staff."
Cons: "Thé food was rather stodgy overall."

Pros: "Top glass airline"
Cons: "I lake food and good service crew"

Cons: "The flight change the gate number immediately so I missed my flight"

Pros: "Although we were badly delayed the cabin service was excellent in every way. Good meal , cheerful staff and well turned out."

Cons: "I did not like the fact that my seat was between 2 small children that belonged to a family sitting behind me .It was ridiculous to put a stranger on a 10 hour flight with a 3yrar old on one side and a 5 year old on the other"

Pros: "Staff on this flight were excellent"

Cons: "The plane seemed to be a little bit old, especially entertaining equipment"

Pros: "Overall comfortable journey"
Cons: "No option to book food option 24 hours before as could check in could not been done earlier than 24 hours before flight. I logged exactly 24 hrs before filled in details which took a few minutes by that time said too late to book special meal."

Cons: "It was terribly late. No one had a clue on when flight would depart."

Cons: "Everything about my experience was HORRIBLE."

Pros: "The entertainment selection was good, though I didn't need to see the blurb about having vloggers available before every movie. One of the very few airlines to use boarding by rows, which speeds up the boarding process."
Cons: "The legroom is very cramped, pretty difficult to eat your meal with the seat in front reclined. The crew were not very attentive: they completely missed me while I was waving the rubbish on their collection rounds. In the end I had to dump it myself in the toilet bins. The PA system is too loud compared to the rest of the entertainment, had to remove the headphones for each one of them."

Pros: "Even it was a 12-13hrs flight, I had been my best flight ever in a long flight. Virgin really exeeced my expectations."

Cons: "given milk yoghurt with VGML breakfast"

Pros: "Efficient, friendly, on-time!"

Pros: "Seat is very comfortable"

Pros: "From the check in to the service on board was very good. Staff were polite and respectful."
Cons: "The food was small. There did not serve bread with the meal"

Pros: "I liked that the boarding went really fast and the staff at the JFK airport was super nice and helpful."
Cons: "I didn't like how rude the airplane crew was and how useless and unhappy they were. The sits were very uncomfortable and the food didn't have any taste."

Pros: "Everything!"

Pros: "Legroom was much better than on U.S. carriers doing same long trip."

Cons: "One toilet not working"

Pros: "Nothing because I was given a middle seat"
Cons: "6'4 and I get a middle seat.."

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Seat reclining happens even during meal time and landing! I had to ask crew to get passenger in front to put seat back upright during meal time!!! Crew should've noticed themselves and ask the passenger without my prompting!! So annoyed!! I complained to VA too"

Pros: "The food was surprisingly ok and the seats in PE were comfortable, plus there were two USB ports, perfect!"
Cons: "Being woken up to be asked if I wanted to eat, twice! If I wanted to eat, I wouldn't have a sleeping mask on my face, or be asleep! Plus, upper class and premium economy didn't board first."

Pros: "They were were very kind and helpful to all passengers"

Pros: "Genuinely pleasant cabin crew, good service, good food."
Cons: "Virgin Upper Class seats are cramped, with very limited stowage space. Turning the seat into a lay flat bed (and returning it seat at the end of the flight) takes some effort--not the simplest of processes. I'm not tall, but my feet protruded into the aisle so I was being disturbed whilst sleeping. Seat is also quite narrow--feels quite claustrophobic when sleeping."

Pros: "Still a more pleasant experience than BA but others have overtaken. Crew make a difference though."
Cons: "Limo service wasn't great in China - asked for address of hotel - a major international chain and confusion on booking details"

Pros: "The boarding and the overall flight experience was quite good."
Cons: "There were movie options such as Sully and Deepwater Horizon, which I think are unsuitable for flights. Overall, the movie options could have had more variety."

Pros: "Smiling and helpful staff Great FREE food and drinks good movies Free goodie bag of travel goods, blanket, pillow etc Free candy for landing descent"
Cons: "Leg room is a little tight"

Pros: "The crew,food and entertainment the food has improved, the ground and flight staffs was very pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "We were flying to Miami, then into a cruise,weighs restrictions,we were find a100 dollars for a couple more kg, we were on holiday for nearly three weeks"

Cons: "Crew"

Pros: "The crew left my breakfast in the sear next to me because I was asleep (unfortunately i didn't notice till I started to disembark...)"
Cons: "I couldn't get comfortable enough to sleep very well, even though I was in a window seat (which I can normally lean on)."

Pros: "Everything except the plane itself"
Cons: "Plane cramped"

Cons: "Why are there no plug-ins?! That was very disappointing..."

Pros: "Mostly everything was fine."
Cons: "Not really anything particularly that I didn't like."

Pros: "I loved wine and whiskey. Blanket and blindfolds, headphones helped me sleep. Care packet with toothbrush came in handy."
Cons: "The Sears were tight and thin. I felt pushes from behind. I could not recline the seat enough. I didn't get a window seat, which is my favorite."

Pros: "Very happy with everything"
Cons: "Air conditioning"

Pros: "We were late arriving at the airport and the checkin desk people were SO nice putting us through. Otherwise we never would have made it on the flight. Also the extra legroom seats were well worth it!"
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "Staff excellent - Inflight screen useful."
Cons: "Could not do online Check in - apparently as there were 4 separate legs on my Ticket."

Pros: "At JFK the lounge and service was the best I have encountered."

Pros: "Everything on-board was awesome...Great job guys!!!"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "My ticket was cancelled at the time I was standing in front of the airline counter to check my bag. I was so furious. The airline did not help me at ALL. In fact, they offer me to buy a brand new ticket at a new price!!!!!! I ended up re-bought the ticket from United airline as my husband has United card (chase) and we ended up paying over 1900 for the ticket that should have been about $911. The priceline number is not helping. I have trip insurance but no. nothing worked. I will never fly Virgin Atlantic again."

Cons: "My luggage didn't arrive at my destination until 2 days after I did. And after I checked my luggage, a leather satchel was stolen from my suitcase. I reported the theft to Virgin Atlantic and requested a report nearly a week ago and have heard nothing back. I am usually careful about packing luggage, and did not think the leather satchel would attract a thief working for the airline, but I will not make that mistake again! DO NOT TRUST VIRGIN TO HANDLE LUGGAGE."
