Airline reviews

Pros: "Friendly staff. Both two meals were awesome."
Cons: "Already done."

Pros: "Plane was super clean and comfortable. A long flight but we'll cared for by host."

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

Pros: "Crew were helpful and attended to any needs that we requested. As I am a big person the seat is never that comfortable but Singapore Airlines seating is more spacious than other companies I have flown with."
Cons: "The food was not too attractive, better variety of main meals"

Pros: "Good food. Friendly staff efficient airports."
Cons: "Confusion at check in on baggage constrains. Conflict between what the agent told us and what was documented on our ticket contract. Plane very cold Unable to recline seats for much of the flight under guidance of flight attendants. Unable to sleep as a result."

Pros: "Super friendly crew. Enough food and drink."

Pros: "Crew is attentive to our needs"
Cons: "NA"

Pros: "Crew will do anything to help"
Cons: "I was on a nut free diet However they still gave me a ice cream covered in macadamia nuts. Nut free meals were also gluten, vegan etc so very bland"

Pros: "Average flight"
Cons: "Seats on this aircraft have very upright seats. Not very comfy"

Pros: "Friendly crew and spacious."
Cons: "Food could be better"

Pros: "Amazing crew."
Cons: "Food focused on Japan on both legs, LAX to NRT and NRT to SIN. Variety would have been nice."

Pros: "Overall good"
Cons: "Boarding needs better management."

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: "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: "Food, service"

Pros: "Excellent"

Pros: "Entertainment ok but not newest, boarding smooth, food ok"
Cons: "Long waiting time for baggage, food not exceptional"

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: "Friendly efficient staff. plane 777 business class seat comfortable, and flat bed, once you figured out how to operate it was also comfortable. Food was good but not excellent compared to previous flights."
Cons: "Singapore Airlines business class lounge in Melbourne was less than impressive and the food was atrocious. Lounge in Singapore was large but still overcrowded. Amenities much better and the food was plentiful and interesting."

Pros: "I liked the food that was provided and the range of entertainment is up to date anencephaly plentiful, spoiling you for choice. The flight crew were very friendly and prompt to serve which was amazing"

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

Pros: "Menu cuisine is customized for country of travel and food was hogh quality. Staff was very courteous and responsive."
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Very attentive, great food, quality aircraft"

Pros: "Excellent flight experience"

Pros: "Service by the crew was great"
Cons: "Food in the economy class was not so great Options provided were not tasty. Each meal tasted same. No kid option available. Tastier options available on other major international flights."

Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Nil"

Pros: "great crew service. my first time flying with singapore airlines. they delivered!"

Pros: "Natalie is a friendly cheery diligent flight attendant who needs special mention. (Sigapore to Brusane fight 6.1.18)"

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: "Was very old plane but was good"
Cons: "Food and crew was well"

Pros: "Classy cabin staff"

Cons: "Flight delayed twice without informing us the reason, and after boarding, we waited for v long to take off also"

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"

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: "Great service and very friendly staff."

Pros: "Singapore service is always outstanding"
Cons: "temp on plane was freezing and even two blankets did not suffice. Everyone was really cold."

Pros: "To be fair, my rating will be very high due to it being the first time flying Business Class on Singapore Airlines. Unfortunately it was a short flight so I didn't et a chance to experience the whole service properly as I needed. I felt like royalty with the service offered by your staff who consistantly came to check if everything was in order without making a nuisance. Fantastic food and beverage options too. Overall a great experience, but would have liked it to be a 12hr experience instead of 5."
Cons: "Flight was over too quickly."

Pros: "For as long 14 hour journey they sure make it comfortable."

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"

Pros: "Consistently good food."
Cons: "Entertainment system sometimes froze, didn't remember where I was in the movie."

Cons: "The video screens need to be upgraded"

Cons: "Same food options as previous flight Not as many movie options as the longer flight"

Cons: "Food not so good"

Pros: "Crew staff were excellent. Food was pretty good. Overall trip was flawless including and early arrival."
Cons: "The movies choices in the in-flight entertainment were wanting."

Pros: "nice food, plenty of water, good service, quite comfortable & on board wifi if you need it"

Pros: "We love travelling Singapore Airlines and always try to travel with them if we can"

Pros: "Just as previous reviews mentioned, this is a top notch airline even when flying coach. The staff was courteous and attentive, the food was good and the flight overall was comfortable. I'd fly with Singapore again in a heartbeat."

Pros: "Singapore is #1 in my books. So glad I could get on their airline. The flight was super. The economy cabin was really nice and comfortable. I especially liked all the adapter plug outlets to power my equipment. I just can’t say enough good things about the cabin crew. The Stewardess were very attractive in their uniforms and make-up, not like the old maids United and American has. The cabin crew were extremely helpful and nice. The service was impeccable. The meals were actually pretty good. Course all the alcoholic drinks available was nice. A person could get wiped out pretty easy if not drink responsibly. But not a good idea to drink much cause of the aftereffects after the flight."
Cons: "The headset ear plugs left a lot to be desired. I need to bring my own good set to enjoy the vast selection of music and shows available. My number 1 complaint was the outside row seat armrests would not move up. This makes getting out of the seat into the isle much more difficult than it has to be. Why does it have to be stationary?"

Cons: "Please review booking 33UZCS made through your app and costing $1493. I was blocked by Qatar airlines from boarding. I need help in getting the issue addressed"

Cons: "None all good"

Pros: "We really enjoyed this airline!"

Pros: "comfortable seats. Crew was friendly. Food was good."
Cons: "cannot think of any. I am Qatar airways fan"

Pros: "On March 4, my wife and I made a flight from New York to Sydney with a transfer in Doha, Qatar. We flew the Qatar airline business class. Everything was great despite a very large flight. New plane, very clean. Wide comfortable seats turning into a large comfortable bed. Great menu and good wine list. All staff are professionally trained and very friendly. All this made this flight very comfortable and we were not tired."

Pros: "Great entertainment choices. Staff friendly and attentive, particularly nice is that they feed children first, and offer small entertainment gifts to them."

Pros: "Crews were excellent. Luggage came out very fast. Flight was very comfortable."

Pros: "Crew was superbly amazing which made flight enjoyable."
Cons: "Heating food with plastic containers is unhealthy and might cause cancer to people. It’s scientifically proven fact that plastic and heated food is carcinogenic. So please find other solution for it. Thanks"

Cons: "More refreshments"

Cons: "Boarding by bus at Doha is lengthy and not very comfortable."

Cons: "Quatar is the best"

Cons: "Cancellation of the flight could have done before boarding."

Pros: "Flight not full, so space to move. Great service"

Pros: "seat space with leg room."

Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Food"

Cons: "It was too cold in the plane."

Pros: "The service on our flights was wonderful! Qatar is the best airline that I’ve ever flown on."

Pros: "Crew was excellent. Very nice and helpful."
Cons: "Food was terrible. Need a variety. Curry is not for everyone."

Pros: "Service was excellent with very polite staff."
Cons: "Front seat anchors were right in the middle of the leg space in 777 which is kind of dumb for Boeing guys."

Pros: "another whole row to myself which meant i slept for most of the flight. food was ok, not as good as on the first flight."
Cons: "headrest is no rest at all, very uncomfortable as it does not adjust other then up or down."

Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful. And the food choices were good."

Pros: "Just that the food is quite small but the variety is OK."

Pros: "The wider space between all seats and the selection of the food"
Cons: "Nothing at all"

Pros: "Flight crew was quick to provide food and drinks but quality of the food was not as good as Emirates."
Cons: "-carry-on did not fit on center overhead compartment unless I put it side ways, which then takes up space for other passengers. Same carry-on suitcase fit nicely on Emirates airplanes. Basically, carry-on overhead compartments have been made smaller on purpose or by engineering error, and this makes me not want to fly Qatar airlines again. Less food options. I went to the Gally and they only had kitkat bars for food. Emirates offer fruit, sandwiches, and many choices at ALL TIMES of the flight for economy class."

Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "I was not given any option regarding the change of my departure flight from Colombo. Originally it was scheduled for 13th 3.25AM and it was brought forward to 12th night 20.20. This caused inconvenience to me and my family to wait 7 hours for the connecting flight to Johannesburg from Doha. When the flight is changed by airline for their convenience, they would have given preferential treatment to the passengers involved. We had to bare the cost of food and make us comfortable on our own due to the delay in transit."

Pros: "Crew and food"
Cons: "It was a pretty old flight and had no tv in front! Huge disappointment. Probably they thought ppl flying from Doha to Colombo were ok with a low quality flight with no entertainment."

Pros: "Fast"
Cons: "There were no food choice when the cabin crew reach my seat all run out"

Pros: "Thank you to wonderful hard working Crew."
Cons: "I am a lacto ovo vegitarian. The meal was just vegitarian. I would have like to have an ice cream or a piece of cake."

Cons: "Poor service, didn't get to sit with rest of our party, food average, overbooked flight, no room for luggage storage."

Pros: "A shorter flight after long one and a short connection in Doha. Amazing crew, offering lots of help with my baby, again plenty of food, quite tasty, we have been offered seconds and flight wasn't full :) this time in a bassinette row which was a bliss for at least some of the time."
Cons: "The bassinette row seats were quite narrow and less comfortable, again the entertainment options dissapointing."

Cons: "Missed it because my flight from Colombo was delayed by 6 hrs."

Pros: "Left and arrived on time, meals were above expectations."
Cons: "Difficult boarding procedure."

Pros: "Like the friendly Crew ..."
Cons: "Food"

Cons: "Entertainment system did not work Boarding at Colombo air port is absolutely the worst We have seen. I have traveled a lot. Took 1 hr 30 mins to check in 40 people."

Pros: "The inflight entertainment didnt work at all. Food choice was pathetic."
Cons: "Food and inflight entertainment"

Pros: "Good timing only"
Cons: "All"

Pros: "Best airline in the sky"

Pros: "The crew were excellent"
Cons: "The plane was too small and lots of turbulence"

Pros: "Lots of leg space, good seats."
Cons: "Food could be better, much better."

Cons: "I had to have the same food in both flights"

Pros: "Staff for the most part. Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Baggage loading was terrible. Way too much was allowed in the cabin. With numerous small duty free items placed overhead. I had to have my back pack blocking my legs for 5 1/2 hours."

Pros: "I usually don't need a lot in the flight, just to kill some time. With Qatar, it was easy, your own entertainment screen with a huge selection of content. Plus the seat was very comfortable and wide, a lot of leg space. New aircraft. what more can you ask?"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Not sufficient food, less quantity or quality of food, cramped seat, there was a big guy sitting next to me, unable to even rest my hand"

Pros: "The food was fabulous and plentiful. We also took advantage of the free tour of Doha--a very pleasant way to spend a six-hour layover. Flight attendants were all very attentive and helpful."

Cons: "Did not give me hotel and waitting for 23 hours and didn't tell me that before"

Cons: "There was no boarding system, everyone just crowded the gate. Food was unappetizing at best. Colombo Qatar Airways staff at Colombo airport were not very helpful when trying to change details of my booking."

Pros: "Great food, comfortable new plans, great food, great crew"
Cons: "Boarding in Colombo was dire - they boarded the plane from the back, leaving Business Class passengers waiting in the hot, uncomfortable gate area until last"

Pros: "I think that the food can improve and it felt like the flight was short staffed."

Cons: "I had a problem of online check in as it mentioned to book online 24hours before departure, I got up early morning to book a seat online. Unfortunately I could not book a seat online as the website was not updated by that time for online booking. It was supposed to be activated by 4:10am on 31st Feb but it was activated around 10:30am. That is after 6hours of scheduled time. I was panic and tried to contact the Sri Lankan Office at Katunayake. But the phone was directed to another line where no body answered. I sent an email but up to now no reply. The online service is horrible."

Cons: "Qatar become a gold digger. They check the weight of the hand carry after first leg of the trip. My ticket was CMB-Doha-Dallas-Atlanta return. After first segment (Atlanta-Dallas or Colombo-Doha) they checked the weight of my hand carry. I have a big telephoto lens and camera. Weight exceeded 8 kgs. So they threatened to left me if I did not check my bag and pay US $ 300 which I paid. This is wrong. They did not do this to all passengers. In the flight I saw many over weight hand carries."

Pros: "Good seating and entertainment."
Cons: "Sort out the food."

Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "The seats were pretty stiff compared to the A380 business class seats on my preceding flight."

Pros: "Crew was amazing"

Cons: "Old plane - ACE - very basic movie selection."

Pros: "The crew were very hard working and did a great job."

Pros: "Of the enormous amount of entertainment available, even I found something to keep me occupied."
Cons: "Perhaps boarding."

Pros: "Crew was amazing really .. best crew you may have... sear very comfort, the ICE is very amusing"

Pros: "Service & caring were superb"
Cons: "The snack was served not good and eatable. Emirates like one of leading air lines could have been served a better food. If it is cost cutting effort to serve a very basic snack like this, customers will be finding other air lines in the future."

Pros: "Friendly staff at boarding and on flight. Very attentive."
Cons: "Food was not as nice as other airlines and my 11 yo daughter was only provided normal adult meal. For full service airline actually went thirsty - constant water should be a given."

Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable"

Pros: "Great food and entertainment and the service was exceptional."

Pros: "Excellent food, entertainment options, staff was great with the exception of one. Plane entertainment technology varies from route to route."
Cons: "Dubai airport is highly disappointing. The bathroom situation is atrocious! I am not exaggerating when I say I waited in line of 25 and 35 women two different times! The men’s situation isn’t ideal but is no where near the problem that is the women’s restrooms. The boarding process is mildly confusing - there is no public drinking fountains but if you buy water you are not allowed to take it to your gate. This info isn’t posted anywhere and makes no sense bc you purchased the water after you were checked through security. Also this rule truly only applies to women. A stewardess showed preferential treatment to someone who looked more native than us and then didn’t apologize. I understood the customer was upset so the flight attendant was trying to pacify the lady/couple but at least apologize for being rude. Dubai airport very much favors men and I would never travel without my husband. I would fly Emirates again but it won’t be my top choice and I won’t be going back to the Dubai airport anytime soon."

Pros: "The crews"
Cons: "The wifi is bad the food is bad im in business class"

Pros: "The departure & arrival time. A fantastic price that included an excellent meal there and back, 30k luggage quota, entertainment that lasted throughout the duration of the flight. It just seemed seamless and felt like it didn't take that long to get there. I will definitely be catching this flight, every time I return to NZ"

Cons: "Waited at the wrong gate, missed the connecting flight and Had to spend $612.00 to get on another flight . What If I could not afford the ticket ?"

Pros: "Entertainment and the seats (leg room)"
Cons: "Food is horrible. The option you want usually runs out and then you are at the mercy of the service crew to find one"

Pros: "Footrest would make the flight just perfect."
Cons: "No footrest. Makes it a little uncomfortable for short people."

Pros: "Love the outfits the flight attendants wear Love the attention they give to all ...and basically everything else was above GOOD"
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was a crabby lady sitting behind me on my way to Dubai the end of October who objected to me reclining my seat ..meanwhile, she had hers reclined! But I didn't consider it important enough to complain."

Cons: "the boarding process was awful. they called for people to go into the pregate area at and the plane had not yet arrived. once in the pregate area the is no access to food or water and you cannot bring in a bottle of water from the terminal"

Pros: "Good leg-room."
Cons: "Crew do not seem to be attentive."

Pros: "Food , entertainment and service"
Cons: "The seats were a little hard. The checkin process was terrible. They ran out of dishes from the menu in the first meal served on board."

Pros: "I was upgraded to business class. Very nice"

Cons: "Poor service, host lied when queried on arrival documentation to avoid doing anything. Second person we asked was helpful and answered immediately. Plane was two hours late with no explanation or communication. I did not expect such a poor level of service and it my worst experience with emerits."

Cons: "Late boarding. Thought I was flying emirates and turned out to be Qantas. Seats not as comfy. They lost my luggage. Took 2 days to get it back."

Pros: "Typical standard up to expectations Emirates flight overall."
Cons: "Delay at taxi while arrival. 20min waiting time at DXB for the arrival taxi."

Pros: "Caring crew"

Pros: "Plane was almost full, had a spare seat in the middle. Meals were good. Staff were run off their feet but coped well."
Cons: "The flight from Brisbane to Dubai then to Barcelona was excellent compared to the return flight from Dubai. Dubai to Brisbane flight, seats were very uncomfortable, seat cushions were hard. Toilets ran out of paper and hand towels, I had to Inform a staff member. Cabin had a peculiar odour."

Pros: "Great legroom, quiet plane, seat free next to me"
Cons: "Not much"

Cons: "The A/C was on full blast. Before take off the flight attendant took away my pillow from my lap?? No blanke was provided upon asking and my pillow was noy returned either. Considering this flight took off from CMB at 3:00 AM, both items would have been a great help. I skipped my meal."

Pros: "Pretty mjuch ebverything except.."
Cons: "My boarding pass for second leg was not given in Colombo but in Dubai.. by then I didn't get an aisle seat."

Cons: "The connection in Dubai was horrible. The 30 minute bus ride is so ridiculous. It's very difficult to even find the Business Class Lounge. No greeters. No signage. Terrible service. Even pajamas are not provided in Business Class --- unlike on Qatar Airways."

Pros: "very comprehensive entertainment system"
Cons: "Food quality was a letdown. Crew was very rushed with meal service and did not return to offer drinks once meal service concluded. No ammenity pack for a business flight."

Pros: "I was very comfortable."

Pros: "The plane was wonderful. Even in Economy, the seats were very comfortable with lots of room, both leg and seat. It felt like I was in Business Class of any other airline I've been on."
Cons: "My flight had a luggage limit of 30kg, which sounds good, until you find you pay per kilo, not per piece when you're over."

Pros: "Attendants were attentive, effecient and very helpful. Made the long flight wonderful."

Pros: "First time flying in double decker plon"
Cons: "I would have been happy to receive points for travel on star alliance"

Cons: "Crew hospitality-not attentive as usual. We tried to upgrade (by paying and not using miles) and the staff at the check-in said we cannot as the flight was not full. Surprised by the explanation."

Pros: "Consideration of my disability, in-flight attention, kindness"
Cons: "for diabled people, no one to properly handle disabled, and wheelchair passengers at the door of the terminal upon arrival. Rather we are told to struggle to the wrong locations for check-in and then re-routed to another desk far across the building just to be brought to the original place silly and cruel, isn't it?"

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

Pros: "Good connecting experience in Dubai."
Cons: "Comfort of seats could be better"

Pros: "Crew couldn't have been friendlier!!"

Pros: "Amazing"
Cons: "Nothing. This is the best airline ever!"

Pros: "Entertainment was very good. Enough variety to pass the time."
Cons: "The aisles were blocked a lot of the time making it hard to get to the toilets."

Pros: "I didnt mych like anything of this transit sector from colombo to maldives."
Cons: "First off, if im buying a ticket and traveling by myself and have an overnight 11hrs and 35min layover i expected some sort of accommodation given that the Maldivian airport is an outside one. Not only did they (Maldivian Emirates counter officer Ibrahim Shinad) refused to give me a lounge they said to get a room at a hotel was $400 US! Which is absurd. I had to sleep on metal chairs. They also closed most shops by 12am and by the time we landed and went through checkin it was 1130. Not a pleasant experience at all."

Pros: "Entertainment, lounge.."

Pros: "Y"

Pros: "Food was good, crew was excellent"
Cons: "Entertaintment system hardly worked.Long response time, frequent freeze-up, touted live news but none available. Seats were hard, and very uncomfortable to sit or relax."

Pros: "It was an empty flight with much space to stretch my feet and sleep in comfort! service was great and landing was extremely good (didn't feel it at all)."

Pros: "Food and service was good!"
Cons: "The plane sat at the gate for 1 1/2 hours, and I got to my motel in Dubai around midnight."

Pros: "The various American airlines have SO far to go to compare with Emirates (and other non-US airlines). One gets treated coldly and with irritation or disdain on American carriers commonly, while Emirates service staff are all professional, confident, pleasant and always have time to help you, handle small requests, or provide you that little extra. They understand service, and provide it as between equal professionals. Service staff in the US seem to think actually providing good service is demeaning, so they waste everyone's time and happiness making sure you know that you're no better than them. It's pathetic and immature. Emirates utterly rocks. And the price was better than all the US airlines. What's not to like?"

Pros: "good service, on top of it i have been upgraded during the longer oversea flight. i like the companies doing that often"
Cons: "food can always be better but overall ok"

Pros: "Comfortable seating Brst service"
Cons: "Very few Good Hindi movies Increase the no and quality of Hindi movies"

Cons: "Boarding had two long lines for economy. Not clear what the system was. Could have been a bit more organized"

Cons: "Better room in leg and width. Hotter food and tastier."

Pros: "Crew was courteous."
Cons: "Seat needs to be much roomier. Entertainment and Food should be good and more options."

Pros: "seat and flight were great , smooth ride as well"
Cons: "breakfast could be better but was fine"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The dinner was one of the top two I've ever had on a plane and I've flown business class around the world."
Cons: "I just don't fit comfortably into the pods and for a 14 hour flight that's a pain in the neck or lower. The seatbelts must be adjustable to allow a pod user to roll on his side."

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: "The sound at my seat didn’t work so I had a a 14 hour flight with no soundtrack. I watched one Japanese movie with subtitles and then gave up"

Pros: "Crew was good. Seating was great because I had 2 empty seats next to me and was able to sleep much more than ever on long flight to Asia."
Cons: "I had to pay to get seat selection in advance of 48 hours which I have never had to do for a flight. I should have got a warning from Kayak about this. As it is, that was not needed because plenty of empty seats and could have got window seat without paying for advance."

Cons: "Flight delayed out of Singapore. Airline should have at least notified earlier so passengers can arrive later to the airport Cabin crew on board rude ‘sorry i’m too busy now’ [just asking for a glass of water] Plane then sitting at HK airport waiting for open gate Arrival timed just perfectly to prevent passengers from catching the last airport express train"

Pros: "Excellent ..."
Cons: "We were served only breakfast and lunch ... in 16 hour travel with a cup of noodles if you asked, the stewardess needed to get reminders couple of times. The steward serving food was excellent. No coffee nor drinks were offered after meals. Food was good though."

Pros: "Smooth easy ride and great business class lounges."
Cons: "They need to cater for more Europeans in their food offerings. They also need to carry enough to ensure they do not run out. Bathroom locks require maintenance."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delayed flights and food service suck"

Pros: "Cathay never let you down. Good service, great staff."

Pros: "Cathay is usually a solid airline to fly with. It’s comfortable even in economy and the staff is pleasant and usually efficient."
Cons: "The delayed boarding process and the bottleneck once people were boarding didn’t allow for the flight to depart on time."

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "After my flight from Nanjing was delayed the next two flights to Sydney been overbooked and I was put on a flight to Melbourne to then go from there to Sydney. No Lounge access possible and no food vaucher offered. I had to ask to even get a small food vaucher. Bad!"

Pros: "Comfortable Economy class on A330. Adequate seating and a good breakfast pastry for a short duration flight."
Cons: "Older entertainment system but not a big issue on a short flight."

Pros: "Up and down at the right time and place. Great experience."

Pros: "Great food (probably the best I’ve had on a flight) and a fairly good in flight entertainment."
Cons: "The crew was good , but I observed that one aisle got a follow up of drinks more than my aisle. It made me wish that I was sitting in that aisle."

Cons: "Kosher meal served lukewarm"

Cons: "the person in front of me just laid down his seat for almost entire flight which made me to have no rooms people are switching seats without letting flight attendants to know. This is not fair for other customers"

Cons: "Flight delay was not announce until boarding time. Such chaos!! at 1:00 AM. Rescheduled the next 24hrs. I was lucky to live within one hour of the airport. Next day, after boarded the plane, had to sit inside plane for 2 1/2 hours until the plane takes off. It was not a good experienced, even though they gave us a voucher for 75.$"

Pros: "Left on time arrived early. Staff excellent."

Pros: "Very efficient with the timing of take off and landing. The crew members were lovely and polite."
Cons: "The time was a bit awkward esp the overnight flight back from Colombo to Hong Kong left us shattered all day long as the seats are too small and congested which makes it difficult for us to sleep or even sit comfortably. Wish they arranged the flight to earlier times."

Pros: "Crew were pleasant and courteous throughout. Food was not bad, but not excellent either, just airline food."
Cons: "Boarding was somewhat chaotic, with people queuing up early and no assigned groups. Seems to be the norm for Cathay unfortunately."

Pros: "Service is good."
Cons: "Wash rooms are limited"

Pros: "Entertainment system worked fine."
Cons: "Economy class cabin is chaotic. Food is mediocre."

Pros: "More leg room, incline on seats, blanket, pillow."
Cons: "All the adverts on Premium Economy with Cathay Pacific are inaccurate. It is NOT your secluded compartment. The curtain to economy is ALWAYS kept open...NO privacy. Food is EXACTLY SAME as economy. In LAX had to REMIND them that Premium Economy has priority boarding. There is no champagne on arrival at your seat...you have to ASK for it. Crew is always HURRIED. When you ask for a beverage or a snack, hostess and stewards have ATTITUDE. it's like they are doing a big FAVOR. Really??? we spent lots of EXTRA MONEY to be in this class. Restroom was difficult to access. Overall MAJOR DISAPPOINTMENT"

Cons: "food was horrible. Please improve the quality and quantity."

Pros: "Boarding was smooth."
Cons: "Cathay Pacific needs to work on improving their cabin layout for B777. The inside is quite outdated."

Pros: "I like the comfortable seats"
Cons: "Thin blankets was not enough to bear the cold."

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Limited help in assisting passengers who missed their connection due to delay leaving Colombo and Hong Kong"

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."

Pros: "Great service attitude. Friendly with smile. Love their service"
Cons: "A short flight with just snacks. Seems downgraded the international flight standard."

Pros: "Unlimited drink options throughout duration of flight; great selection of moviesmotr"
Cons: "Seat layout not very spacious; only 2 full meals offered on a 14 hr flight"

Pros: "Overall service excellent."
Cons: "The gap time between the connecting flight is short u have to pass the security and after that a long walk going to the gate of the next flight other than that it's excellent. My concern is if the passenger has a health problem he/she going to have a shortness of breath. The crew/staff who assist me excellent."

Pros: "It was a typical economy flight. Very long and nothing spectacular or terrible."
Cons: "The flight attendants seemed extremely frantic. They need to relax. I know it was lot of people to take care of but do things to make it easier. Don't let people bring 2 large bags EACH onto flights. Bring a garbage bag around instead of a tiny 5 inch X 5 inch tray when you are collecting 100s? of people's garbage. When departing a plane, I never have seen so much trash and nonsense all over the floor. Bringing a garbage bag around would definitely eliminate a majority of that, the tray was extremely impractical for such a large amount of passengers."

Cons: "Food pretty bad on the 8am flight in economy."

Cons: "Flight was late by 4hrs No food was supplied they said food is over"

Cons: "I was at the window seat. They weren't really paying attention to me when they bring water or collect the trash."

Pros: "Leg room and overall cleanliness was good. Special meal on this sector was very good compared to my previous flight."
Cons: "The crew was somewhat rude...not directly to me but to many fellow passengers. There was a teenage girl seated next to me and she requested the crew for some water and the hostess told her to wait till they served drinks which she said will take 5 mins. It was after 18 mins that the girl next to me finally got water. Seriously, you can't afford to give a glass of water , it's not like she was asking for coffee or some soft drink, its water ...and when we flew Korean and EVA airlines, they had a small bottle of water available on the seat when we boarded. Then my next row family asked for coffee and after a few minutes the fellow passengers wife decided to have some tea. So the husband called in the hostess and the hostess very rudely said , now you want both coffee and team , next time please let me know at the same time. Then when they served me my special meal, there was no butter in the meal tray, so I patiently waited for them to serve others and when they reached my row, I very nicely asked if I may have some butter...the hostess said, we don't have any butter. I was like...speechless. No butter, no water...and Cathay is a top class airline , HOW is it possible ? And the other crew was ok, this was one crew member a female and her name started from J , don't remember her full name. She was the laziest ever crew member I have ever seen and I am pretty sure she did not like her job. Cathay did not provide any tooth brush or mouth wash. No socks, slippers , eye patch...nothing. While flying to HKG from Toronto, I did not opt for special meal and the meal was just HORRIBLE. It was some beef and I couldn't even cut it with a knife. I think Korean Air is more or less the same as Cathay but in my opinion Korean is much better than Cathay. Cathay is only good for Business/First class. I seriously recommend EVA airlines and if not then Korean but if you are flying economy then stay away from Cathay."

Cons: "The service is kinda slow to respond"

Pros: "Cathay Pacific is a great airline - good and plentiful food and drink and the staff is ever so friently"

Cons: "Blankets were very thin, although clean felt reused. Headphones were poor which meant if Someone in a near seat was talking couldn't hear through my headset despite volume being turned up."

Pros: "The business class seating is all lay flat and all seats are isle seats."
Cons: "A medical emergency required us to land in Vancouver delaying our flight into Lax by 1-1/2 hours. I missed my next flight and lost my 1st class seat. No help was offered."

Pros: "amazing they offer a meal!"
Cons: "as it was a red eye flight it would've been great if there were more seats open so one could sleep. the leg room is pretty small even for a not-tall person (5'4")"

Pros: "The flight itself was fine, the plane wasn't great but wasn't terrible either. Some of the crew was friendly and the food was decent. The agents in the airports were all very, very friendly however."
Cons: "The main reason for my poor rating of this flight was because when we booked these flights, they were listed as having WiFi available on the flights. The two longer flights are 14+ hours each and happen during the workday for us. This is a total of 28 hours (times 3 people) that we were not able to have in-flight WiFi. Almost all of our work is done online and thus, we could do zero work whatsoever during this flight. We basically lost the equivalent of two whole workweeks because of this oversight about the WiFi, which is very, very upsetting and cost us a ton of money. One of us ended up having to book a separate flight home in order to not lose WiFi for the entire way back, which added another $900+ to our travel costs. Additionally, the crew was fairly unfriendly when we asked about this and seemed to not care at all about why we were upset. We understand that the in-flight crew cannot install Wi-Fi on the plane in the middle of the flight, but some understanding and apologetic behavior goes a long way with an upset customer. Additionally, they were rude whenever we called for service and asked them for anything, always seeming to be so bothered to leave their discussions in the back of the plane. Finally, I've flown many flights across the world and I have to be honest that this was the least comfortable and nice plane I've been on for such a long flight. You think upgraded planes with WiFi would be used for these extremely long flights. We're all very upset about our experience on this flight and would really like to be contacted about this flight and spoken with. We would like for something to be done for us to make up for this HUGE oversight and bad experience. We don't want to have to call the bank and try to get our charges reversed for the flights, but we definitely feel that we were sold something that was not what we experienced. I'm requesting that someone reach out to me directly as soon as possible to work with me on this. My direct number is 1 (480) 225-6034 and my email is zimmermandavid@gmail.com Thank you, David Zimmerman"

Pros: "Overall experience is good"
Cons: "none"

Cons: "30 passengers on a 60 seat plane. We should have been spaced out due to the Coronavirus, but NO. We reallocated seats which had us all jammed up the front and back with rows of empty seats in between. Not good enough Qantas! I asked to change and the cery pleasant hostess said no we were NOT allowed. I do NOT understand this."

Cons: "Way cramped"

Pros: "Window seat on my own. Landed early."
Cons: "Direct flight to Melbourne."

Cons: "Qantas is always delayed leaving"

Pros: "Dear ok"
Cons: "Some of the Crew attitude could be better"

Cons: "The seats were too narrow and uncomfortable"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The braised beef dinner was excellent, the crew were really helpful and the entertainment good. Arrived early as well.Qantas seems to have great pilots as very little in the way of bumpiness on landing. So well done guys."
Cons: "Nothing much. I have long legs so it's hard to get comfortable enough to sleep."

Pros: "The service was really good"
Cons: "My bag was broken when it came off the plane so I wasn’t happy about that."

Pros: "Service fantastic"
Cons: "Food was a bit ordinary but on a short flight understandable"

Pros: "We eventually got to our destination safely although very stressed"
Cons: "The plane from Sydney to Brisbane was awful. The section where we were seated had a permanent cover over the windows, ours and others near us, over a large section. This was really claustrophobic. It was like being in a closed in tin can. It should be disclosed that the window seat is not a window seat so you have the option to change to somewhere else. The seats are really quite cramped. A huge delay"

Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Boarding was very efficient and on time - flight was exceptionally smooth and arrival in Brisbane was 45 minutes early - keep up yjr good schedule"
Cons: "Not much to mention at this point - all good"

Pros: "Qantas staff unfailingly helpful and courteous."
Cons: "A more suitable lunch that could be eaten more easily , the quiche in a fidley box and nothing to w eat it on was trying."

Pros: "Complimentary Inflight drink and the effort from crew to accommodate English second language passengers in my row."

Cons: "I could not eat the food"

Pros: "Everything was great - arrived early. Excellent service."

Pros: "good"

Pros: "Overall good flight and staff nice and friendly"
Cons: "Nothing comes,to mind"

Cons: "An hour late"

Pros: "Great entertainment and new release movies. Food was great"
Cons: "The man in front kept jamming his chair into my knees just so he could get back as far as he could, despite the only thing stopping this was my actual legs, when I tried to explain that he got a little abusive. Iv got got some light bruising on my right knee. Food was better then expected and am happy to fly Qantas again"

Pros: "Staff were friendly, boarding was efficient, and in-flight service was unobtrusive."
Cons: "To be honest, I really wish Qantas would include Bejewelled in their games offerings."

Pros: "The flight was on time. Crew was pleasant."
Cons: "The food was terrible."

Cons: "Food, I cannot get an option to have a Cheese platter. The food has been prepared too far in advance and is tasteless and full or preservatives."

Cons: "The dinner meal was dried and pretty disappointing as was the media selection in coach vlass"

Pros: "Business class seats are private and allow for lay flat sleeping"

Cons: "Would have prefered to fly Emirates."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "I was not able to board the plane and was told that I needed to apply for ETA. I did and was not able to do it online. Then I needed to call the embassy about a required visa as a visitor. None of this was presented before. I have not traveled to Australia before, so I had no idea this needed to be done. As of now I am still at home trying to find a solution to this requirement."

Cons: "They do not offer any options to passengers who have allergies i.e Onion and Garlic"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Helpful service and comfortable seats"

Pros: "Comfortable plane. Good entertainment. Very nice chicken salad. Friendly staff."
Cons: "The soggy pies were a bit, well, soggy ... The changeover at Dubai seemed unnecessary. Having to go through security tho get from airside to airside was a bit daft. The crew gave little information on how that changeover was going to happen, and when they did it was just before landing."

Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "None"

Cons: "I hadn't had time to organize Australian currency before flying from Beijing. The flight from Sydney to Brisbane did not take credi card."

Pros: "I had an exit row seat so being tall this was very much appreciated"
Cons: "no problems"

Pros: "The no fuss but highly professional approach of the cabin crew. The level of comfort in the cabin, with a business class upgrade."
Cons: "I dont like having to track the distance through the outside lounge in both directions to get to the Business Lounge. The Business Lounge is frequently busy and noisy. Very hard to conduct a phone conversation from."

Cons: "Flight delayed for 8 hours. Flight was to leave at 6.20am but left at 2.30pm. My whole day wasted. Very trying and begin in the airport at 4.00am for reporting and this happens.."

Pros: "Everything on time."

Pros: "Qantas Launge"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I didn't ask for any upgrades, but the ground crew were attentive enough to offer me a direct flight back which was 30 minutes earlier. Everything was perfect. Food, seats, entertainment. Can't complain about anything."
Cons: "Not much of a biggie, but one of the middle aged lady flight attendant was a little rude. Perhaps had a bad passenger before serving me."

Pros: "Close to two hours delay leaving Australia"

Pros: "Staff friendly. Dinner served on flight. Unexpected but welcomed and delicious. Arrived on time. Thank you Qantas (((:"

Pros: "The Singapore Qantas lounge is well set up, despite one or two small issues. Boarding was easy after the usual Singapore gate lounge procedures. On board the crew (led by Brigita) could not have been better. I LOVE the 1 -2 - 1 business configuration. Meals and refreshments on board were just great and I enjoyed that the crew didn't disturb me (Emirates are particularly rude in this regard) when it was clear I was sleeping until descent."
Cons: "Qantas, being an Australian airline, I am clueless as to why, in the airline lounge: Australian Sauvignon Blancs are not available (NZ phewee!) Bundaberg Rum (Ozzie icon) is not available. For a major hub, it is also not clear why a separate business lounge doesn't operate."

Cons: "Boarding was terrible. No announcement when it was late."

Cons: "Small plane and short flight so given a small snack but no entertainment."

Pros: "Lacks a bar and for that reason is a touch behind Virgin Australia internationally. Great seats though"

Pros: "Direct flight to Brisbane. Cheerful crew doing their best with what they had to deal with."
Cons: "Late departure. Remote boarding gate to bus. Even more remote field from which plane departed. Overcrowded flight. Poor quality food. Access to Qantas Club denied (only for first class passengers)"
