Pros: "I liked the size of the cups for drinks: smaller than usual."
Cons: "You could train some of your crews to behave more polite to the customers like they do in the Japanese airlines. Male crews tended to be nicer than female crews."

Pros: "Seat was comfortable, flight attendants were attentive and the food wasn't bad."
Pros: "Singapore airlines never disappoints"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Everything. Singapore Airlines had a great reputation. Imagine my disappointment. It was a horrible flight. The crew was nice enough, but inattentive. The food, if such a term may be applied here, was inedible. Just vile. In flight entertainment was a complete joke. Boarding was awful, but it always is. Seats were extremely uncomfortable. This racket is the ultimate way to rip somebody off of $1000. Horrible."
Pros: "The inflight entertainment was great, lots of movie selections"
Cons: "The leg room was horrible. Honestly the worst space I've ever had in a flight. I was shocked considering Singapore air is considered one of the best airlines"

Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Loved the food/Movies/seats."
Cons: "No air vents and the cabin was very very stuffy and warm for many people. I’ve never heard one child cry for 7+ hours before until this flight. But everything else was decent to say the very least:)"
Cons: "Little or no room in Economy"
Pros: "Excellent attention to service and comfort."
Pros: "Staying in a hotel for 24 hours."
Cons: "Not actually making it to Japan."
Pros: "Friendly attentive staff. Excell ent food and great. Service."

Pros: "I haven’t flown Emirates, but SQ beats the many others I have flown by a significant margin—especially the Chinese airlines, but also all major US airlines, JAL, Korean, et al."
Pros: "The seats are very comfortable. There was ample entertainment."
Cons: "No complaints at all. They are very professional and I would chose them again."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Lost our luggage that full with our winter clothing for the trip singapore airlines delivered to our hotel the next day and compensate us ¥jpn 12000"

Pros: "Crews were all nice, respectful and helpful!"
Cons: "I wanted to watch Indian movies, but I didn’t see the subtitles for most/all of them."
Pros: "Food and good service"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Very good service! Lots of flight attendants and they were kind the flight was long, but mostly smooth. The entertainment was good and there was a lot of it."
Cons: "The flight map was a mess. It either said we had 115 hours of flying time or 3.5 hours. Also, it showed the plane pointing in the opposite direction that we were flying in. A minor issue, but weird."
Pros: "I like the personal TV, my foot rest and water holder frequent water serve,"
Cons: "For me coffee is too strong, and I like the food on the way to Tokyo better than on the way back to LA"
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: "I paid for an economy class ticket but got first class service."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "My Vegan meal was terrible."
Pros: "Clean aircraft. First rate and very attentive cabin staff. High Quality food and mid flight snacks. Its clear a lot of thought has gone into the making and running of this airline. My first experience and quite frankly I will fly SIA whenever possible."
Cons: "Cabin was to me a little warm during initial taxi at LAX. But not overly so."
Pros: "The service and fast flight"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Ease of checking. Empty seat between us"
Cons: "Can't upgrade with krisflyer miles"
Pros: "The aircraft was clean, new, spacious and quiet. The bathrooms were regularly maintained. The food quality, selection and quantity was excellent for the economy class. Even the serving utensils were solid metal and had a very high quality feel to it. Having an endless supply of mid flight snacks was also appreciatd I always like the warm wet towels, which were offered at take off and landing. The entertainment choices were endless, but because it had USB and regular power, I was able to work on my laptop and listen to my podcasts on phone without worrying about running out of battery."
Cons: "The crew lacked its usual pep and cheer. For some reason they seemed very introverted and tired. First time on Singapore Airline that I noticed. The amenities kit was a bit on the cheap side. Also, only the supplied two prong headphones could be used with the entertainment system, I would have preferred an option to use my high end ones -- this was the main reason I chose to just work and listen to my own music/podcasts instead of watching a movie. We boarded and disembarked through the business sections and the aisles were too narrow. The announcements were hard to hear and the temperature was set too low for half of the flight (to kept fluctuating requiring constant adjustment of blanket/jacket). Having said that will keep flying them."
Pros: "Touch screen entertainment system with great variety of programs. Good food, clean cabin, friendly crews. I'd fly again on Singapore Air over other domestic airlines and Japanese airlines."
Cons: "Sound quality of ear buds was not good. No issues if you travel with your own."
Pros: "The service in coach was very impressive! The flight attendants could not be more attentive! I can only imagine how it would be in business or first class."
Pros: "Made Econ class feel like biz :)"
Pros: "The best long leg flight I've been on. I managed to get a whole row to myself and that made the 12hr flight so much better. The crew was very professional, kind, attentive, and it was grand."
Pros: "Customer service and food couldn't be better."
Pros: "Huge selection of movies Towel service, socks, and toothbrush for economy class Snacks included entire chocolate bars! Friendly staff"
Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "The leg rests didn't have enough room to be useful. I'm only 5'10", which is average, not tall, so they should have had more legroom."
Pros: "Everything in this flight is very good. Next traveling time I will consider this airline first!!"
Pros: "Leg room in economy is good, even for tall people. Food was actually quite good."
Cons: "Two of our family's seats would not recline, although they were not near an exit row."
Cons: "old facilities"
Pros: "Singapore airlines was also great and I very much enjoyed that flight even though it was 10 or more hours. The good was great and same for the entertainment . The whole flight was very pleasant . Also I loved the steamed towels that was something i haven't had on a flight before ."
Pros: "The stewardesses were extremely professional- attentive & pleasant. The toilet was well equipped. There was no delay in taking off Boarding was orderly & efficient & quick and so was disembarking. The snacks were nice- ice cream, apples, chops, sandwiches. Many other airlines don't even provide snacks on these long flights. The seats in wconomy were roomy & confortable."
Cons: "I can't think of anything that was bad but I didn't enjoy the breakfast. I would have preferred an American breakfast. It was a mixture of shrimp, potato & brocolli. Ivwould have pregerred a criossant & yogurt to the tiramisu & roll."
Pros: "The flight attendants were super attentive and took great care of me, even bringing me headache medicine."
Cons: "I was in a front row seat which meant using my table in the armrest would wake up my neighbor. (Not a big deal but a little awkward) It was also hard to sleep because the seats didn't recline enough."
Pros: "It was the best service ive ever had. The flight attendants came right away and were always coming up the aisle making sure we eye well hydrated and fed"
Pros: "The flight staff were very friendly and always seemed to be eager to help all the passengers. The menu on the flight was also excellent. Wonderful flight"
Cons: "The layover in Japan was not exactly what I hoped for but I managed OK. Short layovers work better for me."
Pros: "New offer of primium economy"
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: "Professional and friendly Crew & the movies"
Cons: "Too cold, seats to narrow, food not so tasty."
Cons: "Extremely poor entertainment system - mostly old movies. No Bollywood movies"
Pros: "Crew, food, entertainment were all very nice. 5 out 5."
Cons: "One really bad movie."
Pros: "Nice plane. Crew was great. Seat not bad for economy."
Cons: "Only complaint was the 5 or 6 hour delay because of the weather."
Pros: "Crew is very good and efficient, generally very friendly and helpful. Seats are fairly spacious and comfortable. The flight was only slightly delayed. Food and drinks are quite readily available. Meal quality is nothing amazing, but it's definitely not bad."
Cons: "terrible food - poor entertainment system with very mited choice - flight delayed as always"
Pros: "The crew is very proactive."
Cons: "I ordered low calorie meals for all 4 flights. VERY DISAPPOINTED. Absolutely unpalatable food. If someone from catering has the time I would be glad to speak with her/him and explain why I went hungry. Tel. +971561881810"
Cons: "Did not inform us of a flight delay until way after the flight time had past. Waited an extra to take off."
Cons: "I didn’t have a pillow."
Pros: "Nil"
Cons: "A very old product in the CX fleet. The old exonomy seat is terrible. Service was not attentive. Entertainment system was not responsive. CX is definitely going downhill."
Cons: "The seat was a bit small for me, legroom a bit tight."
Pros: "Staff were nice. Lots of legroom"
Cons: "The food was pathetic. Bland and smelled funny. Chaos at luggage retrieval. For some reason they were pulling bags off the conveyor belt, even before it was full. So had to run back and forth to check."
Cons: "Too salty for the meal"
Pros: "I thought the service on this flight was much better this time around; at least from where I was sitting. The attendants seemed to come around more often and there was a much better food selection for everyone involved. Overall, I found the flight to be safe, mostly comfortable, and the food was excellent."
Cons: "I had a family sitting next to me (I was in the aisle) and I felt that while the attendants were courteous and prompt in accommodating me, they all but ignored the people in the middle seats. I had to keep asking them on the attendant's behalf if they needed anything before they rushed on by. At one point the father told me that he was getting better service from me than the attendants. Also, one of the TV screens didn't work in one of the middle seats so the family had to do a switcharoo with their little one after they got settled so their son could have the working screen. I personally found that it was very difficult to recline my seat - I really had to quite literally put my back into it to get it to click into the reclining position."
Cons: "Delay"
Pros: "Cup noodles and snacks available throughout the flight."
Cons: "Chicken curry ran out by the time I got served. I don’t really eat beef so I chose pasta, but the pasta was not substantial because it was just pasta noodles and sauce- no veges or anything with it. So I ate some cup noodles but that’s also more carbs. So no protein was available for my diet."
Pros: "The service from start to finish was superb. The flight to Hong Kong had the on board attendants at full service the whole journey. Blankets and pillows were supplied as standard and plenty of complimentary food. There was a genuine sense that the on board attendants wanted you to be as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "I can't think of anything really. Perhaps the seats could have slightly more leg room but hey. What can you expect from economy."
Pros: "Upgraded to business"
Cons: "Incoming plane was late so that there off departure schedule. Flight to HK was late as well. Bad luck or bad scheduling?"
Pros: "Not much, quick though"
Cons: "Plane is old, seats are terrible, hard awkward, strange seatbelt clunk of foam plastic, food was horrible, never saw the crew, it was hot, needed water has to go track it down, it was an overnight flight so not all the crews fault"
Pros: "Nice airplane, it was little bit delayed but still fair enough. Meals are nice if it has more vary entertainments, would be great :)"
Cons: "Like above, crews are look like tired. Thats fine but even doesnt look like want to work and speak in their language during searving, quite feel bad."
Pros: "I was put on an earlier flight as they had a window seat available. Leg room was good, and the food and movie offer was better than last time."
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. I flew economy and the seats were fairly comfortable. There were plenty of new films to choose from for entertainment as well."
Pros: "I wasn’t"
Cons: "I didn’t like the fact I had a different gate on my boarding pass. We were waiting at terminal 2 for 5 hours thingking that’s where our gate was. One hour before our boarding I come to find out that our gate was in a whole other terminal, we almost missed our flight. We would have missed it if I didnt as the ticket counter when is the Seattle flight going to go up on the screen. Poor communication on Alaska airlines part. Not very happy with that I had to rush to the other terminal because I had the wrong information on my boarding pass."
Cons: "When the crew in the terminal begins moving the economy class passengers in the aircraft its all a mess. Passengers with seats in the front and the middle are blocking the hallway of the aircraft which force the passengers with seats at the end waiting with a long line.The Cathay flight from NY to HKG handle in a much better manner. They let the passengers with seats at the end go in the aircraft first so that these passengers will never blocking the hallway or making any long line.Hope the flight to New York can improve in this aspect."
Pros: "comfort and service is always great on cathay pacific"
Cons: "bathroom were dirty"
Pros: "Cathy service"
Cons: "Amazing"
Cons: "Seat didn't recline"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth."
Cons: "Cathay Pacific needs to work on improving their cabin layout for B777. The inside is quite outdated."
Cons: "International flight delayed after boarding the flight.Flight connection missed. Instead of providing the accommodation, passengers got boarded into flight to Los Angeles. Again another flight to Chicago which dropped the passengers in around midnight. Had to pick them from 4 hour distance from Chicago which was planned early. overall journey was more than 36 hours. No information to the passengers until last minute. Some passengers does know English."
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."
Cons: "Plane was very warm"
Pros: "Good leg room in coach. Comfortable seats."
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "All as expected - no surprises"
Pros: "The plane actually arrived an hour earlier than expected."

Cons: "None experienced"
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."
Cons: "After a stressful 15 hour flight from San Francisco, my connecting flight to Tokyo was delayed by an hour and a half, which is something I'd like to avoid in this long of a flight."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "seat did not recline."
Pros: "It was the best that it could be. Our flight was late and we got the airport early, so the flight attendants put us on an earlier flight so we could make our connection!"
Pros: "The in flight services were very good with very professional flight attendant."
Pros: "I was seated around a number of sick people - and it was a middle seat so hard to get up since there was pretty much no space"
Pros: "Flight attendants were great."
Cons: "Economy's seats a bit tightly packed in. Food was kind of Asian based and no choices for snacks but the Asian type nuts/pretzels that tastes wired"
Pros: "The staff was very helpful and friendly. Location was perfect."
Cons: "For the price per night i expected the hotel to supply complementary bottle water daily. The A/C was not very effective."
Pros: "Service Food"
Cons: "Crowded Bumpy"
Pros: "Great service."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "AWESOME!"
Pros: "The movie selection was very good."
Cons: "The seat was kind of tight."
Cons: "Didn't have a whole lot of movie options relative to other airlines Food was basic but ok Zone boarding was not a good idea"
Pros: "Love it"
Cons: "Nothing to report."
Pros: "I liked the selection of movies and entertainment. I had brought a book, podcasts, and games, but I ended up just watching movies."
Cons: "The seats recline so far that the headrest screen ended up way too close to comfortably watch movies or effectively use the tray. The people in front of my wife and I kept their seats fully reclined, even during the meals, and it was very uncomfortable. One of the meals had a pepper sauce that had such a strong smell that I was nauseous until the end of the flight. While the chicken meal I ate was fine, there wasn't much chicken at all."
Pros: "Nothing"
Pros: "Loved how the ride was dead so I was able to get a whole row to myself and stretch out. Food was excellent! Flight attendants were very nice!"
Cons: "Crazy uncomfortable seats, esp for such a long flight. I’m 5,7 and my knees were jammed into the seat in front of me for the whole flight.

Pros: "Food was pretty good."
Cons: "Taller so hard to get comfortable."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Cramped seats"
Pros: "The attendants were friendly. The air conditioning was on point. Good music. I listened to the new slowdive for the whole flight."
Cons: "There wasn't anything I remember not liking. It was great."
Pros: "Major kudos to the flight attendants on our flight! They really helped is by provinding plant based food despite not pre-ordering it. GreAt job!"
Pros: "Brand new aircraft"
Cons: "Not gourmet not even fast food. A lot of area for improvement."
Pros: "Nice plane, solid food."
Cons: "Waaaay too hot."
Cons: "While booking the tickets I was told that my luggage will be checked in till my final destination but I had to collect them at Narita airport. I had to cancel my plans of sight seeing at Tokyo downtown due to this."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Seats were to close together"
Pros: "I was concerned the length of travel. The flight and staff were very enjoyable. The meals were tasty. Will definitely book again."
Cons: "Food was terrible Flight was not full and I tried to get bettuer seating but I was told there is none available. Then after boarding they had someone else with the same seat number. Very strange"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very professional and accommodating."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 2 1/2 hours at Narita and then again in Toronto for another 2 hours. Plus my family and I were tired from the 11 1/2 hour flight and when we get to check in the attendants were very rude, almost like it was a bother to them when we asked for help, it was probably because I interrupted their conversation. Every airports kiosks are different and that was our first time going through there so we just wanted to make sure that we did it right. Then when we get to the gate where we're suppose to leave out from, I asl the attendant there who I can talk to about forgotten bag on board. She then goes to tell me that I need to call the 800 #, Abd I said but I'm here at the airport can't they just bring it to this gate and she then got an attitude and said that they couldn't do that and I would just have to go to the lost and found which was downstairs. I was on the line with lost and found before I went to ask her any questions, and I mentioned to her that I had been on hold for 30 minutes, and she said they weren't going to answer. So I then asked hire am I suppose to get my bag then? She repeated about calling the 800 #, and at this time a lady runs up the counter thinking that she missed her flight. She shows the attendant her phone and is hysterical thinking that she missed her flight and the flight attendant told her just go sit down it's not here yet you didn't miss it. The customer then starts yelling in another language and the flight attendant just tells your just go sit down calm down and go sit down. She's doing all of this while I'm standing there she pulls out her phone and then told her co-worker I should put her on YouTube the way they do us. All the while I'm standing there because I still have more questions and she just ignored me like I wasn't even standing there. I more than likely will never fly this airline again, I'm paying for their services and to get treated like this, no thanks!!"
Pros: "Overall air cabin crew service was great. Food was average. Seat was comfortable. Entertainment was great!"
Cons: "My elbow keeps pressing on the light button on the remote on the right arm rest which was slightly irritating. But nothing major"
Pros: "On time departure Food was good"
Cons: "Flight attendant should be friendlier"
Pros: "The seats were unbelievably squishy. And the crew was quite rough."

Cons: "Japanese movies, TV was small."
Pros: "Great airplane service, people and amenities"
Pros: "Food and crew were awesome, very attentive to details."
Cons: "Got delayed for almost two hours so rush hour in Japan was my welcome party and it was horrible, when you are on a tight schedule two hours is two much, lost my flight connection to Hiroshima, had to go on bullet train which added 4 more hours instead of 1:25 on a plane."
Pros: "NIL"
Cons: "Missed it due to our first flight being delayed- ended up with ANA air. SCORE!"
Pros: "Fairly quick! Staff were really nice and helpful."
Cons: "Flight was delayed one hour. Very uncomfortable seating arrangements for a long-distance flight."
Pros: "I appreciated the timing of when they fed us. It was almost like they read my mind each time I thought... Hmm I'm getting hungry. The movie/tv selection was excellent."
Cons: "I felt cramp, which it's economy class so of course. But in the back there were tons of open rows and I wish they had spread us out."
Pros: "I had never flown before the day I flew with Air Canada, and the flight I had with them was an international flight to boot- about 13 hours. I was very comfortable in my seat, and caught a fair amount of sleep on the plane. The food was pretty good for "airplane food" reputation, and Air Canada's in flight entertainment is abundant."
Pros: "Although I had to walk quite a way to get to my seat, once I got there, I had a very comfortable and enjoyable flight. The food was good, the bathrooms were close and easy to get to, the crew were friendly and helpful."

Cons: "Small seat, cold food, main dish was not good, poor selection of movies"

Cons: "The crew is rude and unprofessional. Really low efficient and the seats are uncomfortable. Too tide for a 14 hours flight"
Pros: "Awful"
Cons: "They stole some of my property of my checked bag. Bunch of thieves. Arrogant people like Sue from Vancouver. She is also nasty ugly."
Cons: "We waited nearly two hours AFTER WE BOARDED THE PLANE for a flat tire to be changed, or so we were told. In typical airline fashion, we were told several times that the delay would probably take about 15 minutes, turning into nearly 2 hours. In combination with the change I described above and the 9.5 hour flight to Tokyo, we were completely done in for 2-3 days after we got to Tokyo."
Pros: "It was better fright than expected. We didn't enough time to enjoy Canada airport . We made a onetime fright but took long wait at customs."
Pros: "Comfortable seats with great entertainment options. The flight attendants were especially wonderful. They were always smiling and good conversationalists."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed and there wasn't really any organization. A flight to Beijing was boarding at the same time at the gate right next to ours and passengers were getting mixed up, causing longer boarding. Some better signage or direction from staff would have been appreciated."
Cons: "once again quantity and quality of food was below that provided by the five other international carriers I have used in the recent past"
Pros: "It was okay."
Cons: "We were delayed by an hour due to a fuel issue. The food was horrible. I will never fly Air Canada again."
Cons: "My tv screen froze and when a meal was served I let the flight attendant know. She said they would reset it. An hour later it hadn't been reset. I turned on my call light. No one ever came. A male flight attendant proceeded to chat with a woman about hockey for a half hour or more and ignored my light. He went away for a bit and came back and chatted some more. For the last 3 plus hours of the flight my screen didn't work."
Pros: "Movie selection was awesome, got to see Spectre"
Pros: "The entertainment system was great - good selection, and I really appreciated the ability to make a list of what I wanted to watch"
Pros: "Entertainment was decent, and one of the crew members was very kind. The others seemed overworked."
Cons: "Flight was delayed two hours for maintenance, which was better than flying with a maintenance problem. Would have appreciated better information/communication about the delay."
Pros: "The flight experience overall was excellent."
Cons: "The flight attendants are extremely rude. Even when the passengers were sweet to them. In general horrible horrible horrible customer service. For that reason I don't think I'd fly on air canada again."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "I just don't like Jetstar. An airline of pick pockets, and crooks. You're best to only bring your toothbrush, and nothing else."
Cons: "No frills airline. Everything costs extra"
Pros: "Loved we departed on time & landed a little early"
Cons: "That we had to abort a landing & circle round to try again."
Pros: "We paid for extra legroom seats because we were so uncomfortable on the flight up to Cairns. It was worth the money to be comfortable. As it happens it was an older plane with more room anyway."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Staff and crew"
Cons: "Very strict baggage policy you have to be exactly same weight or less with baggage"
Cons: "Was disgusted that I had only a 6kg small carryon suitcase & a laptop in my handbag (6kg) and had my carryon taken off me & put on the next flight & not getting delivered until 10pm tonight!!! Plus had to pay $60 and buy some clothes to wear to event tonight as luggage won’t arrive in time. Will never fly Jetstar again!!!"
Pros: "no concerns - had a seat free next to me which made it a pretty perfect flight"
Cons: "No entertainment at all, not even a app"
Pros: "Newer plane, arrived on time."
Cons: "You have to pay extra for everything. Even though it’s an eight hour flight there is no food, drink or entertainment included. They do have screens at the back of each seat but it’s $10 to watch a limited selection. The food and drink are expensive. It gets cold in the plane but you guessed it if you ask for a blanket you have to buy a $20 “comfort pack”. So be prepared!"
Pros: "Board and disembark available at both the front and back of the plane. Flight and crew were good."
Cons: "Seated in last row with non reclining seats despite many open seats. Charged $60 ASD to check each bag with max weight of 15kg for a checked bag (vs other airlines allowing ~23kg and one checked bag free of charge). Drinks and snacks on plane were an extra charge."
Cons: "Not one of the better airlines."
Pros: "Great crew that were all very friendly, Water was provided for free"
Cons: "Meals are not provided and drinks other than water will cost you My luggage was not automatically transferred into the connecting flight"
Cons: "Boarding was late and congested Not organized"
Pros: "Flight left on time and arrived on time. My travel companion and I were seated next to each other."
Cons: "I was not able to purchase baggage during the booking process even though the customer service rep told me that at-purchase is the cheapest time to purchase baggage. There was literally no option to purchase it during my purchase process (I scrutinized every step of the process since I had been burned re baggage prices on my previous JetStar flight). I paid more for baggage on this flight than the previous flight even tho I paid for a lower amount of kilos. I decided to drive for the next of my flags instead of fly Jetstar again. Over it."
Pros: "Everything, except luggages were not included"
Cons: "We had to pay for any entertainment"
Pros: "Got from point A to B early."
Cons: "It's a nickel and dime discount airline. We will never take it again. Passengers should definitely read all the baggage rules prior to purchasing a ticket; we paid $180 in additional bag fees. There is a very strict 7kg carry-on rule. You have to buy everything in board, they will not allow you to take your coffee or hot food on board the plane."
Pros: "Excellent boarding process."
Cons: "No drinks or snacks"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Paid for Qantas, but got Jetstar, which is at best deceptive and at worse bait and switch. The crew member weighing our carry ons and purses was snotty and bitterly sarcastic. Honestly I don't know how he got a customer-facing position when his best response is "you should know better" when we mentioned that we were under the impression that the carry on baggage limit didn't include purses. We didn't get food, and entertainment was nonexistent (which is why we went with what we thought was Quantas). Added to the long line for Jetstar bag drop and the uncomfortable airplane, I'll never fly Jetstar again. Furthermore, Quantas should seriously consider whether lying to its customers is a good strategy."
Pros: "We were able to change seats to the exit aisle for more leg room."
Cons: "The seats weren't very comfortable."
Pros: "Timing of flight was convenient"
Cons: "Being charged $50 to gate-check a carryon bag, when that same bag had not been a problem on the Syd-Cairns flight! Being charged $4 for a can of mostly flat pepsi..."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "International 7 hours flight and we were charged for everything, food, water, entertainment, even blankets! Regret that did not booked with another discount Australian airline Qantas, this one has one free peace of luggage and feeds you even on domestic 3 hours flight."
Pros: "Friendly Staff"
Cons: "There was a huge delay, all the flights I bypassed with Virgin because they didn't leave early enough left long before us. While we were waiting they didn't even post anything at the gate. Once on the plane the seats were among the tightest I have ever experienced. They even charge for coffee. I won't use them again if I have an option."
Pros: "Efficient and friendly ground staff and crew. An overall great experience! This was a Qantas flight operated on Jetstar equipment, which may be the reason checked baggage fees did not apply as the Qantas fee was slightly higher than purchasing straight from Jetstar."
Pros: "On checking in, they charged us a penalty fee, and then our flight got cancelled at the last minute without any options to get back to the city in time for work. Had to book a last minute flight with a different airline and couldn't get luggage back in time to take it along!"
Cons: "The flight to destination (Cairns, Australia) was uncomfortable. The overhead storage above my seat was a storage bin. The flight attendant kept going in and out of it throughout the flight. The flight attendants in the galley kept opening and closing doors for majority of the flight. The flight was a red eye so it was hard to rest. The flight does not offer blankets, pillows, food, or drinks without paying for these items. So, if you are flying with Jetstar make sure to bring these items."
Pros: "Inflight infrastructure Warm crew"
Cons: "Water size for sales was too small"
Cons: "Ordered food online. Would be better just buying when on flight. Egg sandwich both flights. No choice."
Cons: "Jetstar changed our flight and made it earlier by 3 hours, causing us to have to schedule the next day instead and lose half a day at our destination, they didn't even offer a free checked bag to compensate for our losing half a day in touring! Seat recline is almost nil, spacing, my 5'7" frame knees were in the seat in front....boarding chaotic, would never fly them again! Charge bags at odd weight increments....."
Pros: "Easy of Boarding"
Cons: "Jetstar is a low budget airline similar to Jet Blue in the US. When you book ensure that you pay for one or two pieces of luggage if you don't you will get a rude awakening upon check in. We had to pay an extra $200.00 to get our luggage to Cairns. Ensure you buy luggage if you book a Jetstar flight on the internet."
Pros: "nothing good to say. Would have rather taken a different airline with a longer connecting route rather than direct with jet star."
Cons: "Payed $90 online to choose my seat, but was denied it at boarding, no refund. the cabin is freezing cold and they make you pay $10 for the little blanket, but actually they deny it to you on board if you didn't pay online (I laughed out loud because that is total nonsense). they charge $4 for the coffee... No big deal. But besides those little details, it's an overall unpleasant experience and even a bit sinister they way they cut corners. They seem to be cutting corners on safety with their taxiway and parking procedures much like Ryanair. I was swiftly reprimanded for taking some perfectly innocent photos of the plane (like every holiday goer does), because the pilot didn't want any 'trouble'. Whatever the reason for that immediately defensive reaction, it's not a good sign. jetstar has a bad record of safety as we all know."
Pros: "At least the checkin staff member moved me to an earlier flight"
Cons: "One crew member in particulat chatted loudly for much of the flight - it was annoying. The same person was also unfriendly to passengers for some reason. A big overweight fellow with a piercing nasal voice. Also I was charged an extra $50 for a checked bag - seemed very unfair when if you google 'Jetstar cabin baggage allowance' it says 10 kg!"
Pros: "Had a seatbelt"
Cons: "Seat did not recline. Crew said was broken. Second crew said didn't recline because near exit. Think should be informed of this when allocated seat"
Pros: "I liked that we arrived safely and on time."
Cons: "Where to begin? Paying for baggage checked, paying for carry-on, paying to reserve a seat, no seat back pocket at any seat, paying for anything you want to eat or drink, even a cup of water is not provided-/you must pay. It would not surprise me if oxygen masks were needed that there would be a charge. I basically despise being nickled and dimed at every turn."
Pros: "The plane is new and big"
Cons: "We left 3 hours late and I got into Narita Tokyo too late to make a train home."
Cons: "I thought my ears were deceiving me when they mentioned 3 AUD for lavatory use! Inhumane! And that's on top of having to pay for my check-in luggage. I felt completely dooped! Traveling through the outback, I had no scale, no wifi, etc. And after paying an exorbitant amount, we were STILL given hassles for our carry-on.. Apparently if you "wear" your luggage on your body, it's free of charge (but on aggregate, it still adds to weight & balance of the plane). And how this all contributes to fast handling is beyond me. Moronic rules! Of all the great times I had in Australia, JetStar was the only utter disappointment I had to endure! Never again!"
Pros: "I was quite worried about using JetStar because of bad reviews I had read, but I had a very good experience with the airline. It was on time the staff was friendly and it was an easy boarding process. Better experience than flying the more expensive Virgin Australia"
Cons: "- They had poor food provisions for flight meals. By they time they had reached the middle section, only the vegetarian meal was available. You didn't have any choice (other than not eating a salad...) - The aircraft required some updates to its facilities. The chairs, audio jacks, and TV monitor weren't functioning properly at all for the 16 hour flight"
Cons: "Due to the Cairns to Tokyo being canceled, we had to take a direct flight from Gold Coast to Tokyo. For that flight, we had to wait outside in the rain, because there was no communication between the plane and the staff at the boarding gate. Then we had to run through the rain to actually board the plane. Thankfully when we arrived in Tokyo they provided cover for exiting the plane. I doubt I will ever fly Jet Star again, and I'll tell everyone I know not to ever fly with you if they can help it."
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Nothing. Thought we had booked Qantas and got Jetstar"
Cons: "That the flight ran late That the menu is disgusting. Nothing fresh. No originaliry"
Cons: "Flight was actually Jetstar so the service was worse and no meals were included on a long flight."
Pros: "We can't remember his name but the cabin crew leader was excellent with a great sense of humour. He really "made" the trip. He was also firm but in a polite way when someone stood up before they should have. We didn't have anything to eat so can't comment on the food. Carolyn and Andrew Dowling"
Cons: "The seats are to upright, and there no pocket on the back of the seat in front to store anything."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Worst airline I have ever used. The crew of the actual flight was fine but the people working for the airline in the terminal were very rude. Unfortunately this cheap airline doesn't include any baggage with their ticket prices (which I have never heard of before) and I was extremely surprised when we had to pay $150 for our regular checked luggage that we have flown with for free all over Australia from the US on 5 flights so far. That I can deal with but then the real fun became when we were on line to board the plane and the in terminal crew came out with scales and pulled a nice little scam of charging to check in any carry on luggage (which the woman at the check in counter said was ok to bring on board) for $50 a bag which even included a small suitcase that fit easily in the overhead compartment. If I had only spent the extra $20 or so to use a real airline from the beginning I would have saved $250 on the baggage costs that Jetstar scammed from me. Never ever again will I use this airline and I will be writing them this same email. Make sure you all read the fine print when booking this scam of an airline."
Cons: "The flight was delayed then check in staff were rude"
Cons: "The listed price did not include luggage and they gouged me for almost additional $300 USD to fly from Cairnes to Sydney. Yes my two bags were heavier but I was not charged additional fees on either Hong Kong Airlines, Quantas or JAL."
Pros: "The plane was nice and I was comfortable for the most part in coach. Which is where I always fly. The leg room was good and I had ample storage overhead and below the seat in front of me. The staff were nice. The co-pilot was very polite."
Cons: "At the end of the day you don't want the customer thinking....geez, for the cost I ended up paying, I could have bought the higher priced ticket with _____ airline. My opinion, this would not be my choice of business models. - Some reasonable amount of luggage should be included past the carry on. - I would not charge separately for blankets and entertainment. If I did it would be such a nominal fee that everyone would just do it. - I feel the same way for snacks, water, soda, coffee, etc. Some appropriate fee that is not a major upcharge. I think from a customer satisfaction standpoint I would charge $25 more on each ticket and provide more without all the upcharges. It just feels better."
Pros: "Competitive price"
Cons: "Cramped and minimal service"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Big discrimination singled us out from a line of 100 plus passengers and checked our carry on bag/s for weight. Air line representative said that we have 5 minutes to throw things or adjust bags or you r not going or pay 50 dollars each which we paid. These bags were the same we got from Sydney. We were on vacation and these guys ruined it. We definitely need to file complaint to some agency for not checking any one else carry on in that line except ours. Many passengers had heavy bags than ours. Pls do not recommend this jet star to anyone."
Cons: "purchased movies but the audio-visual didnt work. I should expect refund."
