Airline reviews

Pros: "Crew very helpful. Seat was very good, food excellent."

Cons: "More storage space in business"

Pros: "Just ok"

Cons: "20 min late but acceptable for a 15 hr flight"

Pros: "Very cramped seats"

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: "SQ always the best service"

Cons: "For business class SQ, the crew service was severely sub-par. Seat arrangement same as in bigger 777, so actual space is much shorter and therefore uncomfortable for sleeping and lounging."

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: "The crew, their professionalism and wide variety of entertainment."
Cons: "Air-conditioning was not working properly in the cabin and it felt warm. Seats are a tad uncomfortable and not wide enough on the 777."

Pros: "Crew was very helpful and courteous Entertainment system was pretty good Food was good. They could have given water bottles instead of asking for water."
Cons: "Seat comfort in Economy was just ok. Since this was a long haul flight, seats could have been better."

Cons: "Ran out of the food choices by the time they reached me. Had to make do with what was left."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "the boarding, the attention to detail exactly how i remembered Singapore Airlines from many times i travelled."
Cons: "The food was disgraceful, the entertainment, the quality of the movies was poor.."

Pros: "The cabin crew were fantastic. Food was abundant. Most boarding systems worked well. Choosing seats was confusing on website so we were allocated seating. The newer planes had a fantastic touch screen entertainment system. The seats on the newer planes were much more comfortable and roomy"
Cons: "The small seats are squishy on the older planes. The entertainment system on the older planes were dated and difficult to use. I felt sick after the flight to UK but felt fine coming home after one long flight on a newer plane."

Pros: "Movies selection was great."
Cons: "Food and comfort were not as great as I thought they would be. Not bad, but not worthy of the brand Singapore airlines."

Pros: "comfort, food, flatbed, movie choice. a quality aircraft, that is why i choose Singapore. i fly to Europe every year, and have flown with many different carriers, so i speak from experience when I say I prefer to fly Singapore as they are number one."
Cons: "they walked past me twice with introductory drinks without stopping and offering me one, I then had to ask for one.. not good. the younger staff need to develop the wonderful standard of the older staff."

Pros: "Espresso coffee, champagne, crew, headphones"

Pros: "So good to get on a flight where I can fit in the seats..."

Cons: "When refreshments were being served they did so in a hurry for some reason and missed passengers including myself. We had to call for an attendant to serve the refreshments who seemed a little annoyed at that."

Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "My seat was very hard"

Pros: "Everything SIA stood for, we experienced it, despite the unfortunate delay which the ground crew couldn't have done much about."
Cons: "Unfortunate delay caused by technical issues. I'm just glad we found it on the ground, instead of in the air. But the delay was REALLY long."

Pros: "Most everything"
Cons: "Crying babies made it tough to sleep the whole flight"

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

Pros: "The crew were excellent"
Cons: "I'm 6'2" and the regular economy seats didn't give me enough to leg room"

Pros: "Staff worked very hard and were very helpful."
Cons: "The staff were run off their feet trying to help the families with babies and toddlers. The flight was not pleasant because of the crying and screaming children around us."

Pros: "friendly and attentive crew. connecting flight was a breeze. well worth the price."

Pros: "Fantastic flight attendants never needed anything just a 1st class job definitely a 5 star airline thanks for everything"
Cons: "All good"

Cons: "There was not much leg room in the seatings"

Cons: "This flight is on an old plane. The entertainment system was dated and the seats didn't recline properly. Food wasn't very good and they offered a very limited selection considering it is a 7-hour flight. Not worth doing Singapore Airlines business class for this leg."

Pros: "New plane"
Cons: "Nothing in particular"

Pros: "My wife and I flew from Los Angeles to Seoul. The entire experience was incredible. From check in to disembarking, we were well taken care of. Gracious service and complimentary drinks throughout the flight with a full spectrum entertainment system!"

Pros: "The attendants are pleasant to the eye, thats about it."
Cons: "I heard so many good things and was left disappointed. The service from staff try to help and be nice but some of them do not care at all, things like too busy to bring a beverage etc was a tad annoying. dont know if i will use them again"

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: "The food is good. The service is excellent, always smiling and attentive."
Cons: "Not enough quantity of each type of food. I did not get the cold noodle I want and end up eating sandwiches."

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

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Singapore Airlines always boast themselves as first class service. That is just bs. At night when I was hungry, I asked the flight attendant for some snack, both a male and a female served at my cabin said, "we don't have that." I expected SQ staff to serve one step further, instead of stopping at a no. Can't you recommend something? Throughout the entire trip, whenever I asked something, the way they answered always made me feel that I was a trouble to them. Is it because I was in an economy class and that's how you treat me? SQ, you may want to change what you are proud of. It's no longer a first class service, at least not to us poor economy class passengers."

Pros: "On time. Attentive crew."
Cons: "Old TV screen that was difficult to see. Looked like it was from 1990. Limited movie selection."

Pros: "New plane"
Cons: "Food served 40 min after special meals"

Cons: "Too hot in plane Food really late, 1h after special meals Entertainment system archaic, age of plane All isles seats gone as soon as checkin open"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Flight crew we're attentive and anticipated issues. The flight was smooth and the lavatories were clean and stocked. Love the hot towels at the beginning and end of the flight."
Cons: "Not much to be honest. I suppose if I could say anything it would the seats in economy are a bit cramped, but that's to be expected."

Pros: "Comfortable seats."
Cons: "We were supposed to fly back to Los Angeles from Tokyo on Wednesday, August 24th. We got to Tokyo Narita a little later than planned due to the Narita Express train being delayed. I had received emails that our flight had changed gates, and was then delayed, but when my sister and I went to check into our flight, we were told we were unable to board because it was too late. I thought it was absurd because the flight had not even started boarding, and I had gotten an email saying it was delayed. We tried to reason with them, but they would not let us on the flight. It was imperative that we got back to Los Angeles on Wednesday, but all our plans were ruined due to them bumping us off the flight. My sister had a connecting flight to Boston, which she then had to reschedule and was charged for. We were stuck another night in Tokyo, where we had to spend money on a hotel. The Singapore Airlines attendants eventually informed us that we could get on a flight the next day. This delayed us by 24 hours, which was highly inconvenient. It was also especially unnecessary since due to the flight being delayed, we would have absolutely been able to make it. I do not appreciate being bumped off of a flight due to airlines wanting to make more money, especially being stuck overseas. Its not like it was a domestic flight where we could just hop on another one in the next few hours, this totally derailed all of our plans. I do not appreciate the inflexibility of the Singapore Airlines agents, and this is not an experience that makes me want to recommend flying with Singapore Airlines. I appreciate that they did not charge us, however it was a major inconvenience that could have simply been avoided by better customer service and understanding."

Pros: "Price and convenience."
Cons: "The choice of entertainment was poor. The seats were so hard I had to sit on a blanket, the entertainment system was antiquated. They also ran out of food choices."

Pros: "Singapore airlines was awesome. I really enjoyed the hospitality of the cabin crew. They were very helpful and very eager to fill my needs. I will fly Singapore Airlines again without hesitation."
Cons: "Be more descriptive with which connecting flights we need to go on. We were not aware we we're supposed to get on Silk Air as one of our connecting flights, but we did eventually figure it out. It would really help to let us know your subsidiary companies."

Pros: "Fast boarding and crew"
Cons: "Food was terrible even for plane food was unacceptable the headphones jacks are all half way working u have to wiggle the end to make it work the chairs are very stiff and uncomfortable next time looking for another airline"

Pros: "The food in coach was incredible!"

Pros: "The usual SQ charm was in effect during the flight - the crew was great, helpful without being intrusive, and the Krisflyet experience (albeit an older B777-300) was still good and enjoyable."
Cons: "The Milanese boarding crew was a little unexpectedly rude - the Milanese ladies were just kinda shouting at everyone and ordering unclear instructions. I also sat near the bathroom (seats 43A and C) and the smell was sometimes a bit strong. Also slightly disappointing was how quickly the chicken ran out on the way up!"

Cons: "None all good"

Pros: "We really enjoyed this airline!"

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

Pros: "All great experience!!!"

Pros: "I got a very good seat."
Cons: "Qatar in Belgrade didn't tell me about alchocol bottle I bought in the Duty Free and that i could not go with it all the way to melbourne even bag was sealed and receipt was visible. I lost $ buying, because custom in Doha had to take bottle. Its not right. Qatar custom could see in Belgrade and didn't tell me and the same in the Duty Free shop."

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: "Awesome leg room in economy. Helpful staff."
Cons: "Main courses weren’t all the great."

Cons: "Our flight was delayed from Hyderabad to Doha and they did not allow us to board the flight as connecting flight from Doha to Dallas would have been left. They did not have seats for next day , the earliest we could go was 2 days later. They did not apologize or compensate for delay."

Pros: "Very poor Service on a 16 hour flight"

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

Pros: "seat space with leg room."

Cons: "i did not like the baggage policy for cabin baggage, where i am not allowed to carry my personal item and a carry on separately."

Cons: "Had an 11hr delay overall, 3.5hrs sitting on the tarmac only to be told to disembark for dinner at the airport. Then told that we won't be getting on until 7am the next day, but only really started boarding at 8:30am. By the time we were told about the reschedule to the next morning, it was too late to get a hotel room (too far away) and was told that I could use a 'Quiet Lounge' at the airport (which wasn't quiet). While waiting to board at 7am the next day, ground staff told us that they had to change the plane so there would be a further delay. On boarding, we discovered that it was the SAME 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: "Food was excellent. Service was excellent."
Cons: "Entertainment was limited."

Cons: "They claimed they have free WiFi, but this is not true. Passengers has to pay if they want access to WiFi. Uncomfortable sitting and you cannot adjust it to a comfortable level. Crew keeps demanding sit need to be upright."

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

Cons: "Too many security screenings including the airline’s itself.!!!"

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: "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."

Pros: "The flight got delayed for 4.5 hours. We didnt receive any call, sms or email informing us about the delay. We went to the airport for checkin only to discover that it was delayed! No justification or any reason were given to us. We are travelling with a baby. We had to get a taxi to return to our home and return back to the airport after 4.5 hours. Called qatar airways and send them a xomplaint email. No one cared to answer. The worst flight ever. Will never go with qatar airways anymore"
Cons: "Delayed for 4.5 hours. Extremely bad customer service"

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Observed that one flight attendant from India is giving more attention to a person who is from Navy. He avoided asking what we want for drinks etc. He always ignored us and pushed his cart before we answer. We are very unhappy with his behavior, however, adjusted ourselves."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "-Cleanliness -on time arrival"
Cons: "-Cramped seats I have flown long haul to Melbourne on Cathay and Emirates and Qatar airways economy seats were excruciating to sit in."

Pros: "Everything was excellent as I have come to expect. The business class seat was not one of those new diagonal ones, but made a full width flat bed, so I could sleep for a few hours. Food and service excellent."

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

Pros: "Again on time and effortless boarding made the overall experience a good one."
Cons: "Our suitcase was damaged...still in the process of trying to get it fixed. Hopefully it will be done soon. I will then update this report. Could maybe clean the toilets as it did become a bit messy."

Pros: "Excellent service everyone was generous"

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: "Best airline in the sky"

Pros: "Good service and flight."
Cons: "Movies are the same since last six months. Business class place to keep the feet is too narrow when its flat bed. No space."

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: "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: "Crew, especially Amrita."
Cons: "There was no separate seating area/lounge for business class at Doha , before boarding. Did not find a seat, had to stand before boarding started, all seats were taken by other passengers, no attempt was made by crew , no solution or accomodations were offered , when asked."

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: "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."

Cons: "They won't let carry back pack"

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: "Dinner was only one piece of pizza That’s it"

Pros: "Terrible airline company. It’s a ripoff!"
Cons: "Honesty. Ripoff!"

Pros: "Amazing crews"
Cons: "Nice seats"

Cons: "Boarding on time so I didn’t have to loose the connection flight and had to stay at a hotel an hour away from kuala lumpur to barely sleep to catch a plane to auckland next day that arrives late so i cant take the ferry home."

Pros: "Our luggage missed the connection but the situation was well handled"
Cons: "Entertainment"

Cons: "I have never had to stay at a hotel overnight because of a missed connection but when I made the reservation I wondered how you would honor the 1 hour layover and not miss. I wondered this before any of your delays. I was assured the connection would wait but not correct and you did miss. If you would have told me at the airport this would happen I would have made other arrangements. Instructions on what to do was quite poor too. As a foreigner to be handed a stack of vouchers without direction on where to go for transportation wasn’t satisfactory."

Pros: "Ok"
Cons: "No"

Pros: "The MAS stewardess was really nice & helpful"
Cons: "Everything was perfect"

Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Bigger aircraft"

Cons: "I was incorrectly charged credit card fees by BudgetAir as I paid via debit card and they never replied to my emails or answered the phone. This caused stress as my bank account went overdrawn. Cannot recommend BudgetAir at all. Appalling lack of customer service. Avoid like the plague!"

Cons: "Feel airline maintenance is slipping second flight in a week where they have tv trouble"

Pros: "The flight was pleasant, the staff were delightful, and the plane (a new 737-800) was very comfortably configured."
Cons: "Check-in took an intolerably long time (45 minutes)."

Cons: "This is the second time - once on the way to Kuala Lumpur and on the way back that we boarded late and thus missed my connecting flight. Sadly Cathay and Malaysia air (which was the airline Cathay used for the return leg of this trip refused to help and put me on an earlier flight forcing me to stay an extra 6 hrs at the airport while being sick."

Pros: "food was good and overall good economy class flight"
Cons: "distance between rows seems shorter than other airlines such as Emirates"

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Toilet was not cleaned."

Pros: "There was not much entertainment for kids .. and a"
Cons: "Food was not at all good.. there was not any food at dinner for vegetarians and also for breakfast"

Pros: "comfort and entertainment"
Cons: "Crew"

Cons: "The Business class seats are very uncomfortable. There's just no leg room space when the seats are flat and its very suffocating."

Cons: "The boarding process from at Langkawi airport could have been better if more staff are to deploy to do the processing.As the que is not in one line, it could create misunderstanding among other passengers."

Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "Two MH flights I took were 1 hour and 2 hours late. The latter resulted in missing connection to BKK and another flight to TPE. I got stuck in Kuala Lumpur for the night and they booked me a resort that was 30-40 min drive from the airport. How are all of these reasonable?!"

Cons: "Cabin crew were unprofessional and not much caring Food was rubbish"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Canceled flights both directions. Poor airport. Long runway times. When told I was notified about the canceled flights, I was issued absolutely no apologies."

Pros: "Not much. Probably only the check in from.Phnom Penh. Haha checked through to Melb"
Cons: "Couldn't check in online to secure reserved preferred seat section. No boarding passes printed on long haul section. Fight delayed, arrival delayed. No terminal parking for aircraft, which meant catching a bus to terminal. Not impressed at all. Why bother with frequent flyer class if it's not going to apply at all as business flyers."

Pros: "The plane was nice and new. Very smooth flight."
Cons: "Toilets could have been cleaned more frequently."

Pros: "Gate area was good, boarding quick and arrived on time. Crew very pleasant."
Cons: "Poor quality food especially the breakfast "snack". Unable to take water on board and tiny serves of water and other drinks left us dehydrated. Far too many ads at the start of entertainmen. Repeated for each selection."

Pros: "Food, entertainment, staff and confort all up to the usual MAS standard"
Cons: "Plane was 45min late departing and I was meeting my partner connecting in KL. There was supposed to be a 2 hour layover - instead we almost missed my flight. Fortunately, he was able to hold the plane and I made it. My baggage didn't though - and was only delivered to the hotel at midnight after a convoluted process claiming it at Tan Son Nhat Airport. Not really good enough given we paid extra in order to be able to travel together. Pick up your game MAS - 2 planes out of the sky and you won't regain customers like this!"

Cons: "Had to change gates last minute in Kuala Lumpur. Since security is at the gate, that meant going through security twice. When we went to the new gate there was much confusion among security staff as they were not informed of the gate change."

Cons: "On both flights, i did not get the seats i had specifically booked..."

Pros: "Cabin crew are attentive and helpful."
Cons: "The luggage was found opened, a belonging was tied outside of the luggage. When I tidy up the luggage, I found that my toiletry pouch went missing. MH609 was delayed from 2305 till 0030, all passengers board the flight and we were told to alight again due to technical faulty. Switch to another flight and delayed till 0230. By the time we arrived in Singapore, it is almost 0340. Collected the luggages, clear custom and arrived home is almost 0500. There was absolutely no refreshment provided in between, and have to switch between gates which are far apart."

Pros: "The cabin crew was welcoming. The flight itself was smooth and on time."
Cons: "The smell of the toilets were really bad. Urine on the floor. I know I purchased economy class tickets but I expect the toilet facility to be better maintained."

Cons: "It appears the staff don't want to be there, long check in queues, poor in-flight service, average food, not even offer water in-flight, plane was dirty, entertainment average, not at the standard for a full service carrier."

Cons: "No alcohol"

Pros: "There was nothing positive about the experience on this flight. With exit row seats had to stow luggage back in overhead holds which meant having to go back on landing, retrieve bag & for get way back to seat. Not Airlines fault but no gantry available on arrival. Up and down runway until available (20min) before we could exit."
Cons: "Fact that once again confirmed seating was changed from original booking. Extremely frustrating. Slight delay on take off. Had exit row seats."

Pros: "The crew were reasonably friendly and our experience at check in was positive with an accomodating staff member."
Cons: "Very tight seating with little leg room. Meal was forgettable. Only flight where seating wasn't changed from original booking."

Pros: "Whilst I realise this is an Asian airline the warm roll was very doughy & tasteless & the breakfast wasn't at all good."
Cons: "The warm roll was doughy & tasteless & the breakfast choice was not good at all. Would suggest a yoghurt & cereal option for non Asians."

Pros: "We bought the entire ticket under Malaysia airlines with connecting flight out of Kuala Lumpur to Taipei in 1 hr. The agents in malysia airlines couldn't check us into the connecting flight because it's co share with China airlines and was rude to us when we questioned them why since we bought the tickets from them. We need up having to run to the connecting flight at Kuala Lumpur because the arriving flight was late. Very unprofessional"
Cons: "We bought the entire ticket under Malaysia airlines with connecting flight out of Kuala Lumpur to Taipei in 1 hr.

We need up having to run to the connecting flight at Kuala Lumpur because the arriving flight was late. Very unprofessional"

Pros: "spacious seat at row 5"
Cons: "The fish is merely edible. No IFE available."

Pros: "The plane was decent. The offering on the IFE was a good mix. Food was ok"
Cons: "The IFE froze. I alerted the crew but it took them nearly 1.5 hours to do a reset of the system. I barely managed to watch a movie and only managed that due to the fact that I had my own earphones. They collect their headsets way too early."

Pros: "Crew was efficient and polite in Business class. Lie flat seats were fantastic and cabin layout was great."
Cons: "Lack of movies compared to other carriers. Lack of food choices. Would have thought there be more local cuisine included especially for a flight emanating out of KL. Check-in at KLIA was pretty dismal in terms of the process - simply had no idea where to go even though I was in Business class."

Pros: "All thing"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Our plane was late coming from Bangkok. We had to run in KL to catch the next flight. We did not get our luggage when we arrived in Bali. Still don't have it after 24 hours."

Cons: "I asked from them about my luggage and they said it wil transfer to my new flight accordingly. I suppose to be Jakarta at 10.30 am and my client is waiting for me at the Jakarta air port. Finally I came at 12 30 pm and my luggage was missed. Air port crew said it will come next flight arrive at 3pm. So I have to wait for next flight and for my client. Finally I came out from the airport at 4.30pm."

Cons: "MH 0178 to KL was late and I arrived to KL at 9.30am. My transit flight already gone and the airport crew directed me another gate and gave me a new ticket for MH 0717 at 10.40 am."

Cons: "We don't recive the e-tkt only the reservition"

Pros: "Very good service , small seats , good food"
Cons: "Seats"

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Everything but price. Wouldn't take it again."

Pros: "Safety concerns of crew"
Cons: "Seat pitch is ridiculously small for regional 737 aircraft. At 5 foot 7 inches, my knees touch the seat pocket. AND THE SEATS DO NOT RECLINE!!!!"

Cons: "Flight was 30 minutes late with no terminal announcements of the delay."

Pros: "When I arrived early for my 3:15 flight, the agent said the flight would be late but he could put me on and earlier flight. I left Bangkok at 1:45 instead of 3:15 and the flight was very comfortable with a meal on a short flight to Chiang Mai."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
