Pros: "Reliable service, clean cabin"

Pros: "Flexible seating due to only very few passengers. On time departure and arrival"

Pros: "Very comfortable; excellent service"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Nothing special."
Cons: "Meal was disappointing. Beef was overcook and hard. Service quality is just okay."

Pros: "Perfect timing"

Pros: "The crew werr very helpful and patient and so many languages they knew. Impressive they need a raise"

Pros: "Generally good Flight was operated by Silk Air"
Cons: "Entertainment score is not meaningful because of the short flight time."

Pros: "I have tall family members and they had enough legroom even at the back of the plane. Service was excellent. Snacks and drinks were regular on offer even between meal. Very nice, professional staff even after 13 hours of flight. Just excellent. Thank you for this very pleasant experience. Will definitely fly Singapore Airlines again."
Cons: "There is room for improvement with the special meals. The non gluten brun was very hard. In general it would be nice if passengers could pre-order from a set selection of foods online what they would like on their tray. This would hopefully lower the amount of food that sadly goes to waste. Also it would be nice to have gluten free snacks on board. Flying with celiac disease is not easy."

Pros: "personel provided excellent service"

Pros: "Even though the flight was just 45 mins, the crew were able to pop out a beverages round"
Cons: "Nothing to mention, all was good"

Pros: "The A380 is an amazing plane. The flight was smooth and the engine sounds were fairly low."
Cons: "Waiting on line to check in was more than a half hour although there were probably only 10 people ahead of me. Got a hard time on the weight of my carry-on being more than 7kg although I had to point out that my ticket allowed me two bags that were 23kg each - I had nothing to check. Eventually, when I pointed out that I could wear enough of the clothes from the carry on, they agreed to let me take it on. On board, the service was cold, bland and infrequent. The entertainment system lost sound perhaps 20 minutes into the flight."

Pros: "The service crew served us well. They are friendly and helpful"

Cons: "No working seat audio"

Pros: "Great service. Really friendly and polite. Lots of current movies and TV shows to watch and provided earbuds with adaptors. Made the experience a lot more pleasant."
Cons: "The seats can be laid bag pretty far and the people in front of me decided to recline for a majority of the 10 hour flight. I wish the chairs either didn't do this or the flight attendants would have said something. I didn't feel like I had the authority to do anything about it. Also it was so warm! I have no idea if there was a fan."

Pros: "We started taxing 15 minutes before the departure time. This is great !"
Cons: "not much"

Pros: "Crew was super nice. Amazed at collection of Chinese movies and music. Great alcoholic beverage selection."
Cons: "Hope that there were more time to order and enjoy beverages."

Pros: "The trend to offer more comfort in Economy Plus and similar leads, of course to less comfort in normal Economy class. The ticket price was certainly attractive but it is doubtful that it was good value. Economy Plus might not be good value either."
Cons: "Barely enough legspace. Some seats recline more than others, if you're sitting behind one of those you're out of luck."

Pros: "Good reliable SQ service"
Cons: "I got the seat with communications box on the floor under the seat in front... no foot room :-("

Pros: "Sound sleep"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "crews are energetic and warm welcoming passengers."
Cons: "aircon temperature is too hot for seat 50H area."

Pros: "Entertainment was great"
Cons: "The food is getting worse"

Pros: "again, the crew anticipated our needs"

Pros: "The staff was very friendly and helpful. I got plenty of meals and they easily accommodated my vegetarian diet!"

Pros: "Onboard Crew was great. I sympathize that they have to rush a service on a 1hr 20min flight with turbulance."
Cons: "I have started taking SQ instead of budget airlines hoping for good service and on time travel. However, both times travelling from SQ from jakarta was delayed. Yesterday, I got home 1.5hrs later than I should have. I have also to pay for additional surcharge due to midnight cab fare. Further, when I wsa travelling to Jakarta - none of the inflight entertainment was working. So it has been disappointing."

Pros: "Excellent service, food, in-flight entertainment (what choices!!), and the plane was very up to date as well. Made for a very very pleasant flight experience. Especially for how long the flight was (18 hours or so)"
Cons: "The get out and get back in halt at Hong Kong. Practically the entire flight had to do this, quite wasteful. Bad customer experience. Find a better way please! If Hong Kong makes you do that switch over to another airport, better yet make no halt. I have flown direct from SF to Singapore before so not sure why this halt."

Pros: "Crew was outstanding"
Cons: "No sound on my entertainment system"

Pros: "Great food, friendly staff, on time... what else do you need?"

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."
