My husband reserved my ticket going back to US. I was assigned to seat on an exit, but when I went to the gate , one of a female employee keeps telling me if I'm aware I'll be seating on an exit and I said yes , I look for a vacant seat so I can relax while waiting, she went back again and asked me if the front desk desk gave me any paper about the task I have to do when seating on an exit. I read it and understand . She came back again for the third time and borrow my boarding pass and check something and asked me if I want to transfer to another seat, and I said no. I don't know what she wants me to do , but I'm so irritated because she keeps asking me the same question over and over again."

Pros: "Flight was ok"
Cons: "Again I had a problem with water bottle, I asked small water bottle but they didnt give me one and i asked if they can fill my 2,5 yo water bottle they only fill it half. I asked again for water hours later and they said I need to wait because they will serve dinner (which is 30mins later) This is just very unpleasant experience and I felt like a bad person asking for only water"
Pros: "I loved that the interior was completely darkened for about seven of the 12 hours of flight time."

Pros: "checking in at Changi Airport is always a pleasure, helpful friendly staff"
Cons: "the food is disgusting"
Cons: "We missed the smile and quality service liked before. Food quality is just okay. Timeliness for departure/arrival was excellent."

Cons: "The food was not too attractive, better variety of main meals"
Pros: "Amazing crew! They handled a full flight with screaming indisciplined kids and clueless adults with grace. Entertainment was great as usual"

Pros: "Seats are spacious even for economy class."
Pros: "Average flight"
Cons: "Seats on this aircraft have very upright seats. Not very comfy"
Pros: "Staff was great as usual"
Cons: "Many entertainment monitors including my row of seats were stuck for a while. The “please fasten your seatbelt” was on the screen and made the monitor unusable for the first 1hr of the flight"
Pros: "Crew were very good. Cabin was also much better than Qantas premium economy cabin."
Cons: "Had premium economy seat. Not the most comfortable on the tailbone for some reason."
Pros: "Friendly crew and spacious."
Cons: "Food could be better"
Pros: "Cabin crew knew how to work."
Cons: "So surprisingly, the cabin was dirty and the seat comfort was below expectation."
Cons: "Transit time is good for way too tight"
Cons: "Singapore Airlines is so wildly overrated. The service is frequently poor, and the cabin environment dirty and old unless flying on their very latest planes. Even their A380s are now stale and musty. Not nice."
Pros: "Extra touches and super pleasant and courteous staff."
Pros: "Couldn't find a problem"
Pros: "Basics are covered. TV screen is big but otherwise nothing special."
Cons: "It is so annoying they want you to pay an extra $20 to pre book any seat. If you need the extra $20 that much, charge me in the original fare! Don't nickel and dime me. At check in they couldn't even get my child seated beside me although a change was made last minute at the gate. Every other airline I've flown recently was better. Sri Lankan and Emirates FAR better service."
Cons: "Ran out of options for dinner and could not eat the macaroni cheese they had on offer, so got 2 small packets of nuts instead...international flight running out of food options? Pretty slack. A part of the interior wall fell off onto my foot upon take off and I had to hold it in place for a while until a hostess came....doesn’t give you the best feeling when the plane starts breaking on take off. One of the male stewards was appalling towards a young mum I sat next too...too the extent of giving her dirty looks because she spilled a bit of water on the seat and then told her she had to pack everything away she was using, including the baby wipes! I stepped in and told him how this was not ok and all other staff members were helpful and he was making this Mum upset. He should not be working for such a people friendly reputable airline! Maybe Jetstar instead! Was appalled at the entire flight to be honest!"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and responsive to my needs. They met it with a smile."
Pros: "Food, service"
Pros: "The lunch and dinner menu was excellent"
Cons: "more bathrooms."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew. Efficient service and good boarding. Seemingly wider seats than the newer A350s."
Cons: "Positively ancient entertainment system with poor selection and bad visual quality. Ads pop up every time you go into another menu. If you're flying SIN->BNE I'd avoid the 7.20am departure, you'll get the old 777-200s rather than the A350s they run on other departures."
Pros: "Brand new aircraft, excellent service and food"
Cons: "J class seat, 12A window. Top of my seat curled around my sides, which blocked vision thru 1.5 of the 3 windows I had access to. The enclosure also protuded into my left bicep when I had my elbow resting on the arm rest. Table on my right hand side was too close to my body, and to high to reach a drink easily, I literally had to lift my whole right arm to pick up a glass."
Pros: "Great amount of legroom in the seats we were lucky enough to be granted. Entertainment was good!"
Cons: "Frantic service from crew. They seemed anxious and rushed at all times. Food was also very average."
Pros: "Love the promptness of services, always with a smile!"
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Amazing, amazing service! Great food (including Hagen Daaz ice cream) and good choice of beverages. Lots of different entertainment choices. VERY clean and well maintained aircraft. Staff is always friendly and happy...they really seem to absolutely love their job! Free toiletries in the bathrooms are an extra plus. Whenever there was a change in schedule / plans the captain informed the passengers immediately about what was going on and what would happen next."
Cons: "The only thing that did and probably always will be AWFUL is going thru security at JFK. The T S A officials there are unfriendly, sometimes rude, never smiling and often yelling at you or even little kids or elderly people. We are travelling a lot and no other security staff at any given airport is so unfriendly and harsh. Worst thing about going on a journey."
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "Despite booking Hindu vegetarian meal, chicken was served. The seats were too uncomfortable and no space at all."
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!"

Pros: "Was very old plane but was good"
Cons: "Food and crew was well"
Pros: "Crew, cabin and food."
Cons: "Lack of entertainment console at each seat"
Cons: "Crew was very poor in responding to any requests. I am usually very quite and light on demands as i hardly hit call button on the seat to get any assistance, but during meal, I was asked about drink and I opted for Ginger ale. Crew said, she will get back to me and I did not hear from her for another 10 mins, then there was repeat serve of drinks and I was asked if i needed any thing and asked the same drink, but then I was asked to wait. After I had finished off my meal and ready to go to sleep, someone was bringing my drink out and I then respectfully say no to it as it was bit late after the meal and asked for water instead and did not like the look on the face of the crew member. I saw it happening with other passengers as well and was under the impression, the whole crew performance was pretty poor and SIA was not up to its high-standards as I always like to fly with them. I will look for different option next time"
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: "New plane- Airbus A350 with latest in seats, entertainment system, and cabin fittings. Decent wine. Highly courteous, attractive and attentive crew."
Cons: "The seats and entertainment system on our flight were in need of an upgrade. The seat padding was well worn and uncomfortable. The entertainment system is one of the old “pop-out the remote from the armrest” ones with a very average interface and display."
Pros: "Very helpful and polite staff"
Cons: "Old B777-200 with small personal screen. And they don't have pillows on board."
Pros: "Both ways I had a whole row to myself, great attendants, in flight screens and charging stations at your seat, frequent meals"

Pros: "Crew was very pleasant!"

Pros: "Singapore crew are on their feet and working for the entire flight. Great service!"
Pros: "Great service, great experience."
Cons: "I liked it all."
Pros: "Did not enjoy the vegetarian menu -cold noodles not appealing. Alcoholic drinks very hard to obtain .. orders taken but not received. Service was friendly though"
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: "Changed by very helpful ground staff from lousy seats to exit row at no cost."
Cons: "Entertainment interface showing its age."
Pros: "I am still trying to find my bags. I missed my connection and Jet Blue made me stand in a line to get rebooked for 7 hours. Unprofessional, uncaring. None of this was my fault but everyone who represents Jet Blue treated me as if it were. Never again"
Cons: "The video screens need to be upgraded"
Cons: "Same food options as previous flight Not as many movie options as the longer flight"
Pros: "WAS OK BUT NEED BETTER PILLOWS"

Cons: "Better movie selection"
Pros: "Crew was great and were timely in boarding and deplaning processes. They were willing to help when asked."
Cons: "As a 6’ tall, broad shoulder individual the seats were narrow and there was not much leg room. Fortunately there was an empty seat directly next to me which afforded me some space."
Pros: "Seats are comfy"
Cons: "Food is the worst out of many other airlines"
Pros: "Both the ground and aircrew were very helpful. I had a short transfer to another flight and was immediately greeted by a crew member that pointed me in the right direction. It was so relieving! There was also good entertainment and decent food on this flight."
Cons: "I just wish there were vegetarian food options."
Pros: "Checked and arranged seating accordingly."
Cons: "Crews could've been more friendlier and accommodating."
Cons: "The cabin crew was rude and the food ran out. The entertainment did not work. Plus we were over an hour late once we finally got off the plane"
Pros: "Crew very fast in serving dinner"
Cons: "Flight late"
Cons: "More legroom, but what do I expect in economy?"
Pros: "Great food, and lots of leg room in economy. The flights were on time."
Pros: "This is a bit weird, but it was the first time I flew Eva economy. I've taken this route many times in business and it would take pages to go through all the things that EVA does right in business class. So I was stunned when my first time in economy was so incredibly impressive as well."
Cons: "I'm really picky and there's nothing more I could have wanted in an economy flight experience."
Pros: "crew was amazing and plane was comfortable"
Pros: "Crew was attentive and nice"
Cons: "More space for economy"
Pros: "On time boarding and no delays Crew and staff are very professional and exceeds customer's service"
Cons: "Food need some improvement"
Pros: "We enjoyed the clean and quiet plane. The crew was wonderful and the bit of extra leg room made a difference. Traveling with 4 kids is a juggling act but this way was a breeze"
Pros: "Bathroom very nice. Food nice."
Cons: "Economy seats a bit too cramped."
Cons: "People abuse the wheelchair policies although they are physically fine."
Pros: "Taiwanese food Boarding orderly"

Pros: "Nothing ."
Cons: "Poor service ."
Pros: "Comfortable and clean overall but an older plane."
Cons: "Had an older plane. Seats were smaller than previous flight (narrower, less leg room) Entertainment screens were tiny."
Pros: "Very hardworking and friendly cabin crew and very efficient service onboard. Lots of little finishing touches like free toothbrush/paste, eyecovers, earplugs in washrooms. Larger and better quality LCD screens in their B777-300ER plane."
Cons: "Economy seat space is tight but not different from other major airlines unless you pay extra for more leg space."
Pros: "I came 32 mins before the flight because I went home to get my passport. They said they close the door like 20-30 mins which mean they were able to board everybody in just -2 to 8 minutes only. Amazing. No other flight available for one week because it’s christmas season. I’m not going to the detail of not having my passport (I never left my passport before). They are cheaper from competitors for a reason. No heart here at all. Accident is not acceptable."
Cons: "What to like? No comment yet, first time “to try”"
Pros: "Nothing to like about."
Pros: "Everyone was super super welcoming and accommodating. My favorite part was them not waking me up for a meal, instead they left me a sticker to call whenever I’m ready to eat."
Pros: "This airplane had so much leg room.... :-) made it more comfortable."
Pros: "Me & my wife were on Premium Economy. This was a connecting flight to Manila from Vancouver Canada. The food served was not visually appealing and very lacking in taste. The food can be improved for this sector. The food was a very far cry from EVA Air flight also on Premium Economy. Before this flight we took we took BR9 from Vancouver Canada. The Ground Agent at the boarding gate wanted us to check-in our carry-on baggage which was well within the measurements specified in the EVA Air website (23x36x56cm). My wife and I had only one carry-on each. The reason given the flight was full. I did not understand this since I could see there were lots of passengers who had carry-on baggage larger than the 23x36x56cm and more than one piece carry-on. Not sure why this female Ground Agent picked on us when there were lots more violations within her sight. Also, she was rude when we refused. Once inside the aircraft with all passengers boarded, there were lots of empty bins for carry-on baggage. The more I was not happy about this Ground Agent picking on our carry-on baggage. The more I did not understand why!"
Cons: "This is my wife & I flying with EVA Air. My wife and I have travelled with many international and domestic airlines for 38 years now since we started travelling. I’d recommend EVA Air’s Premium Economy. The seats were wider and leg room was excellent. The amenities were great especially the entertainment part. TV Screen in front of the passenger (installed behind the seat in front) was very clear. it was the same as if watching movie on an iPad."
Pros: "Liked the seats, legroom. Good value for price."
Cons: "Food could be better. Crew could be friendlier. They did their job but did not have the warmth of crew of other airlines I’ve flown."
Pros: "Great crew, very attentive and efficient and nice, friendly. I spoke most with Lucy Tsai, really lovely person, I hope she's appreciated and recognized for her efforts. The aircraft was like new."
Cons: "Food just okay."
Cons: "One was too warm"
Pros: "I actually loved the whole trip. The aircraft still looked like it was brand new on the inside even though I'm sure that it has probably been in the air for a few years now. The service was great from the seemingly effortless takeoff and landing by the pilots to the flight attendants being very efficient and caring. The ambient temperature of the cabin was great. I had a wonderful experience and when I return home I will not hesitate to book with EVA again for any of my international flight needs."
Cons: "It's not really even something that I didn't like because I know learning a second language is hard any way but every once in a while when the flight attendants made announcements they would either run English words together into one word or pronounce it a little wrong but I still could understand everything that they were saying. So if I have to suggest something that is all that I can think of and it isn't even a bad thing at all. Thank you for everything!"
Pros: "I am very pleased with EVA' service after all."
Cons: "All good!"
Cons: "Extremely packed for a 14+ hour-long flight, my seat and it's surrounding smelled. No slippers in the seat pocked. Entre has been improved, but the honeydew tasted old. Flight attendants didn't offer drinks to the window passengers generally during the non- meal hours. The flight was so long , there hasn't been much comfort improved for the seats and overall in the past 15 years."
Cons: "Space beneath seat in front, where you put a backpack and such, was very, very small - smaller than other airlines"
Pros: "Excellent Service and Meals; enjoyed my trip on EVA Airlines"
Cons: "The 2.5 hour flight was delayed by 2.5 hours due to F.O.D. on the tarmac. Plane had to be towered back to the terminal for refueling. Ground crew in Manila was not helpful in assisting passengers with connecting flights."
Pros: "They make 15+ hours of flying feel incredibly comfortable."
Cons: "No complaints!"
Pros: "Great customer service, amenities and comfortable flight."
Pros: "The food we were served was of excellent quality which is so unusual when it comes to airline meals, crew and service was great as well. Obviously Air NewZealand have a far better understanding of what there customer base require compared to their competitors"
Cons: "Could not fault anything"
Pros: "Great entertainment"
Cons: "Overall great"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "Crew were very helpful"
Cons: "First time travelling with the airline and wasn't aware of having to book things like food and entertainment. These things come standard with all other airlines I have flow with so was very surprised when finding out about it mid flight. Can't say I was very pleased but must say crew were very good"
Pros: "New Zealand Air staff were friendly, informative and courteous throughout the entire flight! I was floored by their service and by what was offered. They even worked to arrange for people to move around (some were packed 4 to a row, but there was plenty of space throughout the craft)."
Pros: "The plane was very comfortable. With decent leg room and nice seats. The in flight entertainment was excellent. As was the crews efficient and professional service. Top star"
Pros: "The plane was great!"
Cons: "Preferred seats in economy class are very uncomfortable if your row is full. Long, miserable flight."
Cons: "Very Slow meal service, had to ring for sparkling water when we had asked the attendant during the meal service. Took 20 minutes."
Pros: "Very spacious seats and good entertainment system. Two meals provided. Good blankets provided with pillows. Spacious and clean bathroom."
Cons: "My usb charging plug didn’t work and I wish they sent me an email in advance or told me upon check in what the requirements were that I would have to show upon boarding. I was not prepared to show them my follow on flight schedule (leaving NZ) but I would have been prepared if I had known in advance"
Pros: "The service was fantastic"
Cons: "The plane was very cold inside they need keep the cabin warner"
Pros: "A whole season of New Girl!"
Cons: "Was very crammed."
Cons: "Terrible customer service."
Cons: "Is it possible to build in a way to tilt the seat bottom up at the front a bit so that when the back is reclined you don'get as sore a bum, and you don't slide forward as much. The seatback recline and headrest were very good."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Late start of check in"
Pros: "Everything ! Staff was awesome , food was great and hi-tech plane with its entertainment consoles . Touch button options for ordering drinks , food , movies, chatting with other seat passangers , Wow! Blew my mind . We left on time and landed on time too. We had premium economy seats - felt like business class other than reclining level of the seats. Pretty good value!!"
Pros: "Best inflight experience on economy!"
Pros: "Service and biz check in"
Pros: "Fast transit connections in Auckland, Good times for departure/arrival"
Cons: "When I booked I chose seats, then the aircraft changed and I ended up with the family split. It would have been nice if they had at least sent an email giving me a chance to select new seats"
Cons: "i was a little disappointed in seating .... felt like a Sardine ... unlike my flight from Brisbane to Auckland on my way to LA... which surprised me,"
Cons: "The check in at premier lounge wasn’t as good as before for bussiness elite !"
Pros: "The option to gate check strollers for easy access with a toddler"
Cons: "The stroller wasn't delivered to the gate by Air New Zealand"

Pros: "The flight attendants were great and the flight was on time"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable. I had a metal piece sticking on my hip from the seat or seatbelt, not sure."
Pros: "There was so much I loved, but what really stood out was the mood was set from the beginning....music, lighting, and the welcome message on the screens that were personalized for passengers. Great food and the friendliest airline crew ever. I also loved the safety video....it wasn't boring even though I knew to he information."
Cons: "I was in the middle of the middle row, but even then....I couldn't complain.....most comfortable flight I've ever been on!"
Pros: "The crew was great and the Hawaiian fruit drinks were a great introduction to Hawaii."

Cons: "The Auckland airport is the closest I have ever been to burning in hell."
Pros: "Friendly prompt service!"
Cons: "Awful service, they put me waiting for more than an hour to say that I was in the overbook list so they would need to include me in a flight 3 hours later in another airline. Outrageous!"
Cons: "They charged $120 per checked bag- none are included in airfare. Also, no free food."
Pros: "My husbands booking was not processed correctly from the site we booked through, and we didn't notice the mistake until we were checking in. We were at the airport at least 2 1/2 hours before boarding time. The mistake could have been rectified, we were told it would need an email from Virgin to confirm and change the booking. We photographed and sent through passport details. We phoned the booing site, we phoned Virgin, we were put on hold for 25 mins while the booking site phoned Virgin - but Virgin refused to help us out! My husband was not able to board the flight - no refund, no help - and the sad part was, it wasn't for a holiday - it was to visit and help his 87yr old father-in-law who had fallen and cracked his spine. No sympathy from Virgin, VERY DISAPPOINTED!"
Pros: "Crew working hard and going the extra mile to alleviate systemic issues like overcrowding in economy, glitches with electronics, etc. They're resolutely cheerful and efficient."
Cons: "Air NZ are, like everyone else, packing more people in a plane: 10 across in economy, where it used to be 8. No upgrade option I could exercise, even though I've got plenty of miles and do this trip every 6 months, because of the fare class I booked through Kayak."

Cons: "For the most part the crew was very nice. But the attendant we had lacked some professionalism and seemed very tired. We didn't always get what we asked for as well with no explanation why."
Cons: "Fixed arm rests in the bassinet row. We had extra seats which was a lovely surprise but it was not much help as the arm rests don't move. Won't pay for that row again as my bub was just a bit too heavy for the bassinet."

Pros: "I love air new zealand. Watched dr strange and had yummy breakfast. Crew very friendly"
Cons: "All good"

Cons: "entertainment was poor. use remote control, really."

Staff experience was also exceptional - friendly and highly competent, looking to go the extra mile. Food was great and full menu available upon request."
Cons: "I did not find a gap"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Wheelchair was booked for me for both flight but i could not get that service. No one available for wheelchair. Very bad service."

Cons: "HOSPITAL LIKE FOOD GIVEN,"
Pros: "The plane had everything I could want."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the plane was late, prompting me to miss my connecting flight. These things happen, I understand, but most upsetting was the fact that Qatar Airways provided very little information to those of us missing our flights. While on the plane, when those of us with short layovers mentioned that we may be late, we were told "you'll be fine - they hold the planes for a bit." When we deboarded the plane from New York, we ere wrangled into groups depending on our destinations. Many of us assumed that we were going to be taken to our next flights as we had been told they would be waiting for us. The airline rep in charge of my group refused to tell us any information, however, only admitting after we got confrontational with her that we had missed our flights. She then offered no information about what would happen to us, telling us we'd find out when we got to the rebooking counter. Very unprofessional. I was told that I would have to wait for another 24 hours for the next flight, necessitating that I would spend the night in Qatar. I was put up in a hotel that was decent, but again that offered very little in terms of customer service. We were given an $80 meal allowance, but despite me not using it, I was nickeled and dimed in other aspects to where I ended up paying $20 to help reschedule a flight that I had missed in my destination country. The whole ordeal was a nightmare and mostly due to poor communication and very cold, almost robotic interactions with the QA staff on the ground in Doha."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Small single aisle plane No wifi, no power ports, no individual screens Qatar is great about serving water but not other drinks -- I bought drinks inside security but there was another round of security at the gate -- they confiscated all of the drinks I bought"
Cons: "I am a very experienced traveller. I always book an isle seat, especially for long flights (this was 12 hrs.), so that I can get up and stretch my legs etc. The couple sitting beside me were upset that I did not take the window seat. When it came time to sleep, the wife stretched out over her husbands legs, who was sitting beside me. This meant her feet were coming on top of my legs, and her legs were forcing her husbands legs into my space, touching my leg - I had to put a pillow between my leg and his leg. I asked the Qatar hostess if she could please ask the couple to change their positions, so that my seating space was respected, resulting in no body touching. The hostess replied that she was not permitted to ask the couple to change their positions and be more respectful. Fortunately there was another unreserved isle seat and I was able to move. Due to the fact that airplanes have become cultural melting pots, thousands of feet in the air, I think it would be peacefully beneficial too all, if a very discreet announcement could be made at the beginning of each flight regrading seating etiquette, respectfulness towards others etc. this could also be printed in the flight magazine. Thanks in advance."

Pros: "excellent service always a pleasure to fly with QATAR Airways"
Pros: "I like everything about the flight"
Cons: "Everything was ok"
Cons: "Before our trip we called Kayak service desk with the request to reserve our seats. The answer obtained was that we should do it online. When we went online there were almost no more seats available so we decided to go to the check in counter in the airport. Although we were more than 3 hours in advance in the airport there were almost no seats available. We were very disappointed about this service, we never experienced this with any other airline companies..."
Pros: "Nice airlines"
Pros: "The service was okay"
Cons: "Hi I travelled on 7/16 from Philadelphia to Cairo through the Jordanian airline . Unfortunately the luggages didn't reach to Cairo airport with me . 3 days later they told me that the luggages in Jordan and I have to travel from Alexandria city to Cairo to receive my luggages . When I went their , I found my luggages were opened and missing much items . I made reports on the airport. The employees in the airport they wondered why the opened the selling box , and the box looks empty. The weight for this box was 32 kilograms in the time of shipping. And I paid $400 for extra weight . But when I received it was like 20 kilograms. Plus I paid $350 for Qater airline for shipping 3 luggage . That's means I paid $750 for shipping 3 luggages and I received it looks empty . I need refund for all shipping and $5000 for damages items , or I will complain this airlines through the American court . Thank you"
Pros: "Staff was excellent"
Cons: "More selection or choices like international food not like focus on Indian food"
Pros: "Food quality needs to improve, some chairs can't recline."
Cons: "JKIA airport was terrible. Staff were late to come to the check in counters. Why can't they be there earlier than one hour so we don't have to stand in line for so long with our bags. Totally shambolic affair."
Cons: "Food is not up to the standard. They make announcements that there will be snacks like sandwiches and ice creams, but they don't offer that openly. You have to ask for snacks. Now we, US citizens don't like to ask for food just so you know. The crew should offer. if we don't need the food, we can always say no."
Pros: "I flew from LAX to Dhaka Dec 18th and had a great experience. Staff was very helpful -- I was given the opportunity to re-arrange my bags, to avoid a baggage fee. Excellent entertainment options. New and comfortable planes."
Cons: "Had a bit of a delay getting checked in at LAX, as they only have one counter, and weren't open when I first arrived."
Cons: "No entertainment service from Doha to New York"
Pros: "After long takeoff delay, made up most of time to land less delayed. Bagge arrived more quickly than I EVER experienced a Hamad Airport."
Cons: "Boarding started very late so we knew takeoff would be delayed. Flight attendant woke me up from sleep to ask if I wanted breakfast."
Pros: "Very generous with drinks and water to prevent dehydration. Two very good meals. Professional and courteous crew. Some unoccupied seats allowed passengers to spread out."
Cons: "Plane was a little too warm."
Pros: "Crew polite and efficient."
Cons: "Boarding process non-existent. Huge queue of 80+ people. Seats average comfort. Food bland. No entertainment other than on the overhead displays. Will avoid flying with this type of plane / flight."
Pros: "I liked everything about the flight except how the layover was handled. The original aircraft for the leg of the flight from Doha to L.A. had to be changed, and it seemed like confusion descended, and 2 hours later, we were finally boarded on the new aircraft."
Cons: "The added time to my layover was hard because it was unexpected, and was handled poorly, in my opinion."
Pros: "on this trip, nothing."
Cons: "We had to walk from the one side of the airport to another, security check AGAIN (this was a transfer flight, why another check?), then we had to walk ALL the way back to where we just came from, as the boarding gate was close to where we got off. We wanted to go to the loo, but they said we are late. But we sat for another hour behind the gate and waited for the plane. At 01h00 in the morning after 12h of travel, not the best experience - and something that could be avoided."
