Most unreasonable, cheating me of my payment. I have since sought legal advice and contacted travel agent regarding, seems case law from several instances in my support. I had to pay thousands for new flight Austrian Air. Swiss thieved my money and I dont mind saying so. Unfair and unfair conduct. I am saving this letter for twitter to tell my friends of my disgust.

Pros: "As usual, plane is in good shape and crew are well trained. Nothing wrong with all the basics, but Singapore Air has definitely lost its lustre."
Cons: "For heaven's sake, please don't announce a boarding procedure and then not follow it. If you want to have a free-for-all rugby scrum to get on the plane, so be it. But don't announce boarding by rows/groups and then not make even a lame attempt to adhere to it."

Pros: "Your staff were all very helpful with a smile."
Cons: "I wish there were more movie choices"

Pros: "The crew was exceptional! Seat was comfortable and extra seat not occupied next to me giving me extra elbow room also in addition to sufficient leg room."
Cons: "I would have a few suggestions but it would rise the price of ticket significantly. We got what we paid for."

Cons: "Check-in service at Ahmedabad was very bad. The staff there seems to be very disorganized. Took an hour to check-in may be 10-12 passengers ahead of me."
Pros: "The crew was super nice"
Cons: "Food. Usually I have had no complains with food in Qatar but the chicken dinner/lunch was really bad this time."
Cons: "I don't understand how this company has a high rating in service. We missed our connection because the plane was delayed and they treated us poorly. How can you have a complimentary lounge for people missing their flight but not allow people in. I guess because we were only economy. When asked could we pay for an upgrade to business class, the attendant responded with "oh, its expensive" I didn't ask how much, I asked if we could. I never felt so insulted. The food was terrible. By the time they got to us, our food was cold and they ran out of the menu item we wanted. I have no intention of flying Qatar again. I will stick with Emirates"

Cons: "Improve quality of service and cleanliness."

Cons: "The food ,however, was disappointing again."
Pros: "I received email telling me that my fright was delayed and showed the time they told me to be at KGL airport but when I showed the airline was already left because they was no delayed. I had to book another plane to return to US which cost me $1500. Here is the email Dear Mr Muvunyi Good morning This is to inform you that your flight from Kigali QR1378 is delayed due to operational reasons, please be at Kigali Airport for check in at 4PM and check-in will close at07PM. Best regards Jeanne D’arc Uwitije Reservations & Ticketing Supervisor Tel: (+250) 252553500"
Pros: "We had requested wheelchair assistance. And the way helper was assisting us its not professional services. Which Qatar Airways promissi g to us."
Cons: "Helper was literally dragging two whelchairs at a one time. Means two passengers sitting on two different whelchair was pulled by one helper. I actually want to share video with airline so they will understand what they are promissing and what they are providing to their customers."
Pros: "Stuardess verry nice, exceptional"
Pros: "Overall OK food not all that up to the mark"
Cons: "3 out of 4 bags did not arrive even after 1 day of journey completion"
Cons: "the flight was canceled."
Cons: "When I checked my two bags, I was told to pick them up in Doha and recheck them to my final destination at Rwanda. When I arrived in Doha I was told by the transfer desk that I did not need to pick up my bags because they had been checked to my final destination. I even asked them to pull up my flight information and to confirm that, which they did. However, when I arrived in Kigali, Rwanda, my bags were no where to be found. No one has found them yet. I also called Qatar Air before my flight and asked about hotel accommodations for my layover because my layover was from 6:00 pm to 7 am. When I called, I was told that I would be given a complimentary hotel room because of the length of the layover. However, when I arrived I was told that I did not qualify for the hotel accommodation. Then, I was told that a hotel room would cost 250. When i arrived at the hotel, I was told the cheapest was 325."
Cons: "asian vegetable meal was uninspired"
Pros: "Crew is very helpful and friendly. Camecthrough with drinks at good pace. Check in very smooth"
Cons: "Food - very mediocre and felt like each meal was similar"

Pros: "Boarding and Seat comfort was good"
Cons: "Food frequency for 16 hour flight was awfully inadequate. Food quantity in each service was not sufficient. Food quality ok. No intermittent beverage and snack service in 16 hour flight segment. Cabin baggage limit of 15 lb/7kg per bag is awfully inadequate that renders the standard cabin baggage useless"
Cons: "The food could be better."
Cons: "They supposed to provide Wheel chair for my elderly mother in Law who had a foot fracture, was very hard /painful to walk. I confirmed the wheelchair option well advance before her travel date in Qatar Airways Web site. I got the confirmation also in the Qatar Airways Web site. I usually fly with my family as I have a big family with couple of children and elderly. I will never fly Qatar again, this was the 1st and the last fly with Qatar airways."
Cons: "We normally fly business class, but this was a quick side trip so we settled for economy."
Pros: "Overall flight was pretty good"
Cons: "Food wasn't as good as the other 3 legs of the trip (Houston-Doha, Doha-Kathmandu and Bengaluru-Doha) The hand rests on these planes didn't go all the way up making it less comfortable to be travelling on a 16 hour flight with a toddler."
Cons: "The seats don't recline very far and on the a380 the window is a very long way from the seat making it impossible to lean against. - so difficult to get a reasonable test. The food was not great. Perhaps not qatar's fault(?) but we bought duty free alcohol in Brussels and took as carry on then after a layover in Doha we were advised Australian regulations prohibited us from taking it on board for the final leg - even though it was still sealed in the duty free bag. We were forced to check it protected only by some lightweight clothing and a thin back pack we had been using as cabin luggage. Fortunately it made it undamaged - but it would be better if we had been informed of this at Brussels."
Cons: "Mashed connection"
Cons: "1-one hour delay in departure. Although pilot tries his best to reduce the delay time but still lost our connection flight. it is known that the whole operation is complex but still believe that effective cooperation by flight crew, ground personnel and others could result in a better outcome. the hotel chosen by the office at airport was not satisfactory. Qatar Airways customers deserve better treatment."
Cons: "The extra leg room seat I purchased was not as advertised. There was a row in front of it not show on the web diagram."
Cons: "Seats were teeny"
Pros: "Very attentive, friendly and multi-lingual crew. Everything was on time. Food was very good. Excellent."
Cons: "No landing form!!"
Pros: "Very good entertainment system."
Cons: "Food was horrible. No drink service. Old seat."
Cons: "Arriving on time"
Pros: "BC middles seats are good for couples and one of the better laid out BC’s. Service was good but maybe not as JAL, ANA, or SQ."
Cons: "The console storage/center tables was splattered with coke or coffee and was not properly wiped down during cleaning."
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 plane delay for 3 time"
Cons: "Need to have wifi on all their flights"
Cons: "The accommodation/attendance from the flight crews. They looked like they have just been deployed from training."
Pros: "The seats are old .. the plane is old .. the flight was delayed 2 hours, food even in first class lounge is not apetising the menu has been cut significantly.. lettuce and tomato say that they are not sourced from China .. must be from India as the quality sucks"
Cons: "On time is an expectation that if you travel from HK to BKK on CX that it is always delayed .. common knowledge for people in Thailand.. this is bad"
Pros: "Good entertainment choices. Preferred check thru TSA. No one seating next to me."
Cons: "I don't think I will use Kayak again. You farmed out my booking to Voyama which spelled my name wrong. They refused to reissue my ticket with the correct spelling so I had to sweat out getting on board the airlines and now I have to sweat it out today because they again refused to reissue the ticket"
Cons: "The delay of one and a half hour has resulted in a loss of half a day of holiday. Without any compensation."
Pros: "Very professional"
Pros: "Food was good, comfy seats. Nice crew."
Pros: "Very civilized flight from start to finish."
Pros: "The flight is on time"
Cons: "Immigration waiting time is long"
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."
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: "Excellent and attentive staff, great food, clean bathrooms (by airline standards anyway), fantastic entertainment! It's a great value for the price, especially for coach class!"
Cons: "Not much to dislike. I just was a little bothered by the fact that I had purposely chosen to have my boarding pass be digital (to save the environment), but to do this you have to check in online. As a result, they can't verify your passport (something they need to do in person). So when I got to the gate they had to check my passport and then made me use a new, printed boarding pass. Not a huge deal, but just something that bothered me."
Cons: "Seats to small! Food subpar! I’ll stick with Korean Air in future!"
Pros: "Efficiency of Operations, efficiency of service and attitude to pleasing customers, great choice of movies, excellent aircraft"
Cons: "For two hours flight food was adequate"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Cathay not the "cut above" it once was."
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: "Comfortable seat"
Cons: "Poor food and very basic (old movies) entertainment - always delayed"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and the flight was comfortable. There were two service representatives to take me on the golf cart from my gate in Terminal 1 when I landed to the bus departing from Terminal 2 to Terminal 4 where my connection was. It was unexpected, but saved a lot of stress based on the distance I had to travel within the airport to make the connecting flight."
Cons: "They recently moved the Cathay Pacific flights to the new Terminal 4 in Changi in Singapore. The connecting distance was significant to get from the Terminal 1 gate to the bus leaving from Terminal 2 to get to Terminal 4. Changi is usually VERY efficient, but this was a real inconvenience to not have direct transport from T1 to T4. Also, the lines for Cathay are not properly sorted by First/Business and all status frequent flyers. There were no ropes or anything organizing the queue, so there were well over 150 people lined up for the priority boarding with no clear queue. At that point, there is no priority. Time to get better organized."
Pros: "Very quaint and hour flight went by pretty fast"
Cons: "Electric outlets did not work on chairs"
Cons: "Ordered a vegetarian meal that was never delivered."
Pros: "The movie"
Cons: "More than 1 hr delay. I had ordered kosher food. They came to show it but it never appeared later. I complained and they broight it: the starter was frozen solid. Eventually i had a fish plate. Not too bad..."
Pros: "My experience with Cathay has been great the last 3 years always a smooth flight to La and to Hong Kong...Great service"
Cons: "The only thing I did not like is my experience with vayama thru kayak I had an issue with changing flight times and delayed confirmation upon booking"
Pros: "Great food, free, and also free snacks, lovely staff, extra pillows and blankets provided. Roomy, loved it, plan to use then again !"
Pros: "Usual Cathay high standards - which is what one expects."
Cons: "Older A330 for short haul so not lie flat seats. Older IFE. Food, oddly, not great today (unusual for Cathay)."
Pros: "More drink options were offered."
Cons: "Flight delay"
Pros: "More space between seats"
Cons: "Little to no vegetarian option"
Pros: "The check in staff were only doing their job, by insisting that I had an onward ticket before they checked me in, as per Thai immigration ruling. Otherwise, if I did not have an onward ticket, they stated they could not check me in, and would refund my ticket. The problem is there are many ways of travelling out of Thailand, and I frequently visit Cambodia and Thailand via bus. How could I produce a bus ticket which I usually buy only a week before departure?"
Cons: "That was a bit of a rude shock, as I had never encountered such obstacles before, and most fortunately I did indeed have a reservation for a BKK-GVA ticket, or I would have been refused boarding. Apparently the Thai immigration authorities have a condition for Swiss citizens to possess an onward ticket before they can enter Thailand, but this is the first time an airline has applied this as strictly, and has been as insistent, as Cathay Pacific. I have been in & out of BKK hundreds of times, and this is the first time ever an airline has applied this rule to the letter. So, bottom line, never again will I fly Cathay Pacific."
Pros: "The crew was very cordial and respectful.We spilled our water on the seat and they quickly helped us to clean it up without any fuss or accusation."
Cons: "The food did not smell delicious. My son was already feeling quite ill from the previous trip and could not eat."
Pros: "All but did not eat"
Pros: "most of the crew was fine but..."
Cons: "one crazy crew member started banging on the restroom door and would not stop until I opened the door. ... simply because the pilot was telling us the weather in HK. So rude. Will definitely select another airline next time."
Pros: "Every thing was ok but no snack"
Cons: "Water and soft drink are important for every one shold serve every half an hour"
Pros: "Everything went very well with the very good service of Cathy Pacific."
Cons: "Maybe a map of document control areas."
Pros: "A350 was very nice. Very quiet, new screens on entertainment system big and easy to use."
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."
Pros: "Food was good. Crew were very nice and supportive."

Pros: "The food is great"
Pros: "Entertainment was excellent. Happy for the USB charger installed in the seat. Staff was quite friendly. Food was okay sometimes."
Cons: "Seats were difficult to recline. Chairs were uncomfortable, not enough back support. Upset that the set of round trip tickets never showed the gate number, even more upset that both ways I could not use online check in, it always said "error.""
Cons: "Seats need better padding"
Cons: "Seats we’re tight on second flight. They had an odd foot rest protruding.....?"

Pros: "Seat was ok. Service was timely"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and helpful (ie, helped me with vegetarian options). Everyone was pleasant and friendly."
Cons: "More comfortable seats, needed a back rest or thicker pillows. Will opt for premium seats in the future."

Pros: "We have now been on both TAIWAN based carriers in the past six months. CI aircraft interiors were more visually appealing- I remember BR being too dark..."
Cons: "The temperature fluctuations of the aircraft. This is really for all airlines, usually too hot upon boarding & too cold 3hrs in... Also, no coach class amenity kit. I think BR gave us "sleeping" face masks for a similar length trip..."
Pros: "Lovely crew, good amount of food and drink available."
Cons: "Sound on some of the entertainment options was too low to hear, so I ended up using my phone instead."
Pros: "Honestly the turbulence really did not make this an enjoyable ride. I actually could not wait for us to late. It was rather petrifying."
Cons: "The food was not great and again the seldom announcements about turbulence made this a difficult ride."
Pros: "Services good"
Pros: "seats were full configurable, tray table very logical and space all felt useable."
Cons: "the seats in business class as 1-2-1 seating. each seat has aisle access! flight was super smooth, seats comfortable, although the ‘2’ seas had no arm rest on the isle side. took a little getting used to. There was no overhead bin for the center “2” seas, had to share with the outer window occupants, but plenty of room. IFE was a huge screen with great programming. it looked like.a 16 or 18” screen. meal service was above average and wine selection was strong. featuring both old world and new."
Cons: "Couldn’t fault anything"
Pros: "Service was very good"
Cons: "Chairs in business class in A 330 were not too good in my view"

Cons: "Bad food"
Pros: "Food is awesome as well!"
Cons: "Food was not as good as I would expect from China Air and they ran out of eggs for breakfast."
Pros: "Unknown flight by most of travelers thus easy parking, easy check-in, and no long security check line. 30 minutes, from check-in to be at boarding gate."
Cons: "A ONT airport is a dying airport thus no amenities available near or in the airport. It is more a "local" airport then International airport but who cares. You get your flight going quickly........."
Pros: "Overall flight was OK. Seems like a good value for the price paid."
Pros: "Transit was smooth and efficient."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and attentive. Wide range of entertainment to choose from."
Cons: "Boarding was done half the plane each, so I stood in line waiting to board for a long time. I also had the middle seat, which was uncomfortable for sleeping. I would upgrade for a window seat next time. There were only meat options for the food, and no main courses for vegetarians."
Cons: "They ran out of food options and i was served meat i could not eat for every meal, thus i ate only rice for over 24 hours. We then sat on the tarmac for over 4 hours with only 1 update,. After an over 18 hour flight. the last that could have been done was to update the passengers so we had an idea of how long we would be sitting there. it is understandable that weather may cause delays, however, it is inexcusable that we were told it would be a 2 hour delay, and were not updated until approaching 3 hours, and additionally, after that, we were told we would be approaching the gate at 10 and were not updated for another hour. The crew should have kept us better informed with the updated delays. They didn't pass out a single snack the entire 4 hour delay, and gave us one cup of water each, terrible experience"
Pros: "Better entertainment."
Cons: "No footrests, skipped at mealtime and flight crew response delayed, not offered arrival form"
Pros: "It’s takes s long time checking in due to long lines."

Cons: "I like everything"
Pros: "Easy flight from TPE to SIN. The plane was clean and the crew were attentive and pleasant."
Cons: "The plane was older and starting to show signs of wear and tear. The snacks were okay, but the meal served was nearly inedible. Limited selection of beverages. The entertainment system was slow and did not contain as much content as other international lines I've flown."
Pros: "Flight arrived early"
Pros: "The plane was very clean and new looking. Customer service from all employees was terrific."
Cons: "On both China Airlines flights, the wifi system did not allow my phone to access the link to purchase access. The food options were just OK."
Pros: "Very nice flight crew"
Cons: "Food didn't agree with me"
Pros: "The service was great. But they didn't really cater much to vegetarians."
Pros: "If you're seated on a row with collapsible monitor that stows like a tray as opposed to a monitor on the back of the seat in front of you, then you must end your entertainment or whatever movie you're watching earlier as the plane descends. The other monitors are played right up until the plane comes to a complete stop."
Cons: "My luggage was unlocked but the combination was locked when it landed; therefore I couldn't open the luggage."
Pros: "The food was good the crew were very nice and polite"
Cons: "The seating was a bit cramped. Because I have long legs there wasn't a lot of room between rows. I have been on other flights with China Airlines where the seating was comfortable and roomy but this flight wasn't. The entertainment screen was not very user friendly. The screen was small and not very clear to watch."
Cons: "I was flying with todler and they dont have food option for kids also the menu was only left to one choice, and it's too spicy for todler to eat, so it was bad in food choice."
Pros: "The service was awesome from booking through to boarding the journey and disembarking.Would recommend to family and friends."
Pros: "The SIN / TPE flight had a nice, new A350"
Cons: "Bathrooms on the SIN/TPE flight were really dirty. The leg rest is too protruded even when not deployed."
Pros: "Lot of food, good entertainment selections, friendly"

Pros: "The crew was very nice. The flight was safe"
Cons: "Only pork was served. Every movment of the back passenger were felt."
Pros: "Would recommend it!"
Pros: "I liked the large selection of movies and TV shows."
Cons: "The headphone jack on the chair wasn't working as well as it could have so it was hard to hear the movies I was trying to watch. I didn't like how the meals and lights being dimmed seemed to correspond to (and keep us on) the time zone of the place we were leaving instead of adjusting us to the time zone of the place we were going."
Pros: "The crew members were nice."
Cons: "The seats are small. The food was not that great."
Pros: "The flight I was on was leaving at 1:45AM. It took about 15-20 minutes to check in our bags and there were about 75 people ahead of us. We didn't wait at all for TSA, just walked up and there was absolutely no line. The China airlines staff was very nice and helpful. Also, there were screens on the headrest in front of us and they had new tv shows, music and movies all for free and they even provided earphones."
Cons: "The seats could have been a little more comfortable but it wasn't unbearable."
Cons: "Got to the gate and flight was booked, no seat, I was not on the list. Have trying to get refund by phone and e mail without response. Will never buy anything ever with kayak unless I get fully refunded."
