Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "Just felt a little cramped but not to bad"

Cons: "Almost missed my flight - they could not locate me as a ticketed passenger"

Cons: "When booking the flights, I didn't know that I wasn't able to reserve a seat until check-in at the airport. Even usual online check-in was available for my ticket. I might have not purchased this ticket if I knew this limitation. It would be nice to know it at the time of booking."

Cons: "The fact that my father was diagnosed with Cancer and they wouldn’t refund our 1300.00 for round trip tickets to the Philippines which is our vacation home. The airline required documentation from my fathers doc which I provided. He was not going anywhere for at least a year (radiation and chemo) and the denied even credit.I was able to get my parents tickets refunded by a different airline. NEVER Again. my father passed 8/12/2018. Our trip was scheduled for 9/13/2018. Very disappointing.see"

Pros: "I was very impressed with the courtesy and efficiency of the pilots and crew. Staff were very helpful and polite. A very good experience overall."
Cons: "The stewardess making announcements overhead on the PA system speak very softly and can be very difficult to hear and understand in addition to their accent. I know the safety cards are available for that info but the "in-flight" announcements are the ones that I worry I'm missing important information due to my misunderstanding."

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "The flight is on time,service is excellent."

Pros: "I was highly impressed with Japan Air's staff both at the gate and on the flight. It was incredible customer service. I get really anxious with flying and traveling in general and was so eased just by their friendliness and organization. Thank you! I also forgot to write a review but my flight from San Diego to Tokyo on June 27 was also amazing. I was really stressed out over some logistics of my trip and the people at the gate in San Diego were so helpful!"

Pros: "The aircraft was clean and boarding went smoothly. The flight was late but the staff seemed courteous, polite, and apologetic for the delay."
Cons: "I thought I had ordered a vegetarian meal when I booked the flight roughly 1.5 months prior to my trip. However, when the meal was being served, there was only a chicken or pork option and my vegetarian meal had either not been properly booked or had been forgotten. When I informed the staff, I was asked to show proof that I ordered a veggie meal. I could not pull up my email confirmation as we were flying and there was no internet access. I had to lug my bag out of the overhead and search for a print out confirmation. I had not come prepared with the "evidence" the stewardess wanted. While the staff tried to be polite, I also found them to be quite rude, demanding that I produce evidence. Could they not have simply given me an extra salad without all the fuss? I felt I was being treated as a criminal for requesting a veggie meal that had, unfortunately, not been recorded in their system."

Pros: "They provide us slipper for in flight comfort"
Cons: "Old aircraft"

Cons: "I wish they flew all over the USA, American carriers should be ashamed"

Pros: "I loved the crew, for the most part the food, and the large screen to."

Pros: "SERVICE was amazing and everything was very smooth"

Pros: "Great entertainment options. Didn't try the food but I never do. Friendly and helpful staff."

Pros: "The crew was so kind and helpful, the kind of people I wish that I could have spent time to get to know."

Pros: "Crew was amazing and very comfortable seat"
Cons: "Food can be better and Entertainment was poor There should be more choices available. WiFi was spotty only 150 MB was available after paying. It should be free in business class like other airlines"

Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "The boarding"

Pros: "The crew was not amazing and the plane was ok. Our flight to LAX NH106 was delayed 6 hours. We slept in the airline lounge and given minimal compensation."
Cons: "Place the passengers in a hotel rather than have us us crammed in a lounge where you can hear angry passengers arguing."

Cons: "The way they board the passengers"

Cons: "Good"

Cons: "The main issue was getting off the plane in Sydney - we had to wait for a bus to offload us as the plane was sitting a long distance from the terminal. The bus eventually came, offloaded half the passengers and then returned 20 minutes later to start to offload the rest. It's the longest time I've ever spend disembarking from a plane and clearing an airport - very poor whoever was responsible (I'm assuming Sydney airport was at fault)."

Pros: "Never take it"

Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice"
Cons: "Movies on board need upgrade"

Pros: "The flight attendents were very attentive. I started to havecan upset stomach on decent and the attendent checked in on me to see if I needed any help, she got me a botte of water and checked in on me again once we had fully landed. I really appreciated the concern and care they showed."

Pros: "Food and entertainment has to be better."
Cons: "In Chicago, the flight was delayed for almost 4 hours which in turn made us miss our connecting flight to Jakarta. Then next flight available flight to Jakarta was 24 hours later."

Pros: "Crew was fantastic. Really polite and attentive. Liked that they offered liquids throughout the flight to keep us hydrated. Good experience overall."
Cons: "Entertainment - didn't have to many movies I liked. Food was just ok. I enjoyed the soy sauce beef and rice the most."

Pros: "- Friendly staff. - Excellent service and boarding easiness. - Kayak's excellent price."
Cons: "- Entertainment had limited movies. - Food could have more selection for business class. - Loung in Japan is not the greatest and overcrowded. - Boarding from Japan to KUL was very poor specially in packing people like sardine in the shuttle."

Pros: "Food and services were great"
Cons: "Not a large selection to view on the TV"

Pros: "Flight check-in counter was so nice and accommodating. Makes me never want to go back to rude America."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Everything the whole team was great."

Pros: "crew and food was great"
Cons: "seat cushion was a bit on the dead side I found myself trying to figure how to fit as many folks in the same space more comfortably. Maybe swapping every other seat to face backward so we have more arm / shoulder room? Idk"

Pros: "Excellent service. Good food. Great entertainment selection."
Cons: "No free WiFi"

Pros: "Aircraft menu and service"
Cons: "Aircraft seat pitch"

Pros: "- Airfare Price - Ease of Checking In - Friendliness of Staffs - Aircraft is clean"
Cons: "- Entertainment options were limited - Food choices limited as well - Seats are a bit stiff and small"

Pros: "Seating was comfortable, staff were very attentive and obliging, offered tea, coffee water etc frequently. Blankets were also on offer. No comments to make in food or entertainment as not on offer ( as a domestic flight would not expect them)."

Pros: "Food, comfort, service. Good comfort for an economy ticket. No complaints. Movies worked great, blankets and pillows provided. I thought good leg room, but I am only 5’4”. But I still get crowded on domestic flights—seems the seats get smaller and closer together on short flights every year. ANA was good service to Japan. Business class and first class looked awesome. Maybe someday."

Pros: "The configuration of 787-900 Busn. Class was very good. However need to age Chivas Regal to 18 years like KAL, not ordinary 12 years. Flight attendants were exceptionally efficient, professional, courteous, and outstanding ambassadors for ANA and Japan itself. In the US Marine Corps we would say "Ooo Rah". I may heed to check out your milage club and stop using various carriers for my trans Pacific flights. Thank you very much ANA."

Cons: "Ssssssddddddddddddddddddddddddddddffggggggggggggggg"

Pros: "Wonderful service"
Cons: "Food was on the very bland side"

Pros: "The staff was so friendly, attentive, helpful and pleasant!"

Pros: "There was a delay"

Pros: "EVERYTHING!"

Pros: "ANA food and service is awesome"

Pros: "Entertainment system was new and easy to use. Seats in premium economy were quite comfortable."

Pros: "The crew was really nice. The plane was clean and comfortable."

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

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Flight was very pleasant and enjoyable, on time for both departure and arrival."

Pros: "Got bumped to Business Class"

Pros: "Great service and attentiveness with great food and entertainment, including a nice big comfortable seat!"

Pros: "The customer service at the Check-in, the flight attendants, the movies and the meals. More than my expectations! Will definitely use Singapore Air in the future in my travelings! Will recommend it to my circle of friends and relatives! Thank you very much. You are the best airline I've used since 1976!"
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "Old plane. Technology didn't work"

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: "I loved everything! The plane was well maintained, the crew were friendly and attentive, the flight was comfortable even for such long hours. Food was also great! In flight entertainment had recent movies and shows, even international selections."

Pros: "Food, service"

Pros: "Excellent"

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: "Consistency of high quality service. Beef goulash in economy was surprisingly good!"
Cons: "Impatient Caucasian passengers trying to squeeze past. Maybe put them further back next time! :-)"

Cons: "No entertaining at all, only old movies. The seats are very tight. There was a guy snoring during the flight keeping everybody awake. The breakfast was mediocre, just a a bun with fruit"

Cons: "Some staff not courteous which surprised me"

Pros: "Great service"

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

Pros: "Excellent service & comfort"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Safe smooth flight. Timely take off and arrival. Great personalised service. Consistently high service standard is well appreciated."

Pros: "everything is perfect"
Cons: "the food on Silk Air can be better"

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: "Helpful staff and a comfortable trip. A plus all the way around"

Pros: "Personal Touch!"
Cons: "No such!"

Pros: "New movies! Yes!"
Cons: "I asked for one of the crew to help me bring up my carry-on luggage, as i'm just recovering from a flu at that time. Instead the FA looked at my bag and asked me in an irritated tone if my bag was really that heavy? I said I was recovering and I just need an extra push once I lift it up into the cabin. In the end she did help but i did not appreciate her attitude and felt disappointed my whole flight."

Pros: "All went great"
Cons: "I liked all - end to end excellent service"

Pros: "Nothing specific"
Cons: "No real dramas"

Pros: "Food, entertainment, cleanliness of the restrooms"
Cons: "There was a passenger on the return flight who had the window shutter up during sleep time right across my row, and the cabin was so bright to sleep for me. I notified the crew but they were not keen on bothering the passenger"

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

Cons: "Seats are tight and hard"

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: "The video screens need to be upgraded"

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

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "I have no complaint"

Pros: "The graciousness of sraff, entertainment options, cleanliness of the aircraft. Always willing to make adjustments to accommodate."
Cons: "Its unfortunate that your staff sometimes do not get treated with the respect they deserve from a guest"

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

Pros: "I have always enjoyed flying on Singapore Airlines. There were no delays on my connecting flight coming out of Tokyo to Los Angeles. The huge plane was like flying in a small "transportable town.""
Cons: "I had a long connection wait in Tokyo, but that was not too bad since I got a great price on the round trip ticket - less than $700!"

Pros: "Very nice and accommodating crew!"

Cons: "Food is served in heated plastic containers. I would request Qatar airways not heat the food in the plastic container."

Pros: "All great experience!!!"

Pros: "Excellent service on both flights. Truly a 5 star experience. Well done Qatar Airways."
Cons: "Nothing. Keep up the good work"

Pros: "Staff are very polite and helpful (ground staff and in the air)."
Cons: "The food was hit and miss. Some of it was good and some of it used ketchup as a sauce. The economy seats have been stripped down to budget airline level padding and the rows seem have been been jammed in a little closer."

Pros: "Yes overall probably the best flight to Chennai from DC"

Pros: "Crew was very friendly"

Pros: "Justfly stoled my money as i booked for seat and paid 30$ And the seat didnt booked I want my money to be returned"

Cons: "I don't understand how this company has a high rating in service. We missed our connection because the plane was delayed and they treated us poorly. How can you have a complimentary lounge for people missing their flight but not allow people in. I guess because we were only economy. When asked could we pay for an upgrade to business class, the attendant responded with "oh, its expensive" I didn't ask how much, I asked if we could. I never felt so insulted. The food was terrible. By the time they got to us, our food was cold and they ran out of the menu item we wanted. I have no intention of flying Qatar again. I will stick with Emirates"

Cons: "Great"

Pros: "All the crews are awesome and very helpful, especially to the parents with young kid."
Cons: "More variety and quality of food"

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."

Pros: "The flight attendants were fantastic. They paid attention to every detail and anticipated requests. Always had a smile on their faces."
Cons: "The service and the aircraft with QSuites were superb."

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

Cons: "The flight got delayed which caused me to miss my connection flight. I was at the gate of my connection flight 5 minutes before the departure, however, they did not let me in. They transferred my flight and now I have to wait 24 hours for the next flight."

Pros: "qatar airways"
Cons: "serving alcohol to passengers more than once is disturbing the passengers on the side"

Pros: "On screen entertainment"
Cons: "Food options- they start serving from front when they reach behind of plane food options exhausted pls ask ground catering to provide more non veg food"

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: "Service is courteous, both on the ground and air. Food & entertainment was top-notch as well. Enjoyed my flight, again on Qatar!"

Pros: "The flight from Doha to Beirut was not fully booked, we could move easily."
Cons: "I have requested seafood for my meals. Unfortunately I was told that no such request was mentioned on the list as special meal. Overall the food was okay, we had 2 small pieces of beef in one meal, the two salads has no taste and the sandwich was too salty. A passenger who sat next to my husband snored all the time and leaned a bit over my husband as he was heavy."

Pros: "Food was excellent. Service was excellent."
Cons: "Entertainment was limited."

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

Pros: "Awesome experience provided by inflight crew, who attended to all your needs for this long for flight. Made us feel really at home!"

Pros: "Fantastic flight...Qatar’s QSuites are fantastic, very comfortable, Amazon my service from the crew, fantastic entertainment options, and with the privacy of the suite ...very close to first class...in fact it is better than the first products (from a seat perspective) of many other airlines such as United, Delta, Virgin, BA, etc."
Cons: "I wish there were more vegetarian options on the menu"

Pros: "The entertainment was good without any hiccups"
Cons: "The crew was in a hurry burry which didn’t give a very good experience. I would suggest the crew to be little more tolerant and make their customers feel good.foo"

Cons: "Staff looks down at Brown skin"

Pros: "Great service and excellent flying!"
Cons: "Food was a bit dry"

Pros: "Great service and great meal options!"

Pros: "Onboard crew pleasant and service efficient as always. Seats more comfortable than other airlines but aisles so narrow EVERYONE bumped me going by for 15 hours."
Cons: "Ground crews remain the downfall of this airline. Long line in Doha to re-clear security on international connection FROM USA! Fastidiously weighing and forcing mutiple repacks of carry-on bags even though well under total limit of checked & carry. (Doha agent told me dfferent rules appied for carrry on 2nd plane even though I asked specifically frm original agent who checked me thru to final dest--insisted I check main carry on even though there turned out to be plenty of overhead room on board). Poor coordination of checkin lines, security lanes, and flow of people -- all fixable with a little forethought, engineering, and better utilization of circulation space -- and much clearer communication!"

Cons: "The seats were cramped"

Pros: "I love this app , it's awesome it's save my money and time"

Pros: "I love the smiley flight attendant , especially for long distance flight. It would make it better trip to have smiley and helpful flight attendant. The meals provided by QA is good. it would be better with more fresh fruit on every meals."

Pros: "I liked staff , boarding was organized food was not very good needs to be improved"

Pros: "Food, seat, overall comfort and timeliness."
Cons: "The entertainment system was not working - on a 12+ hour flight..."

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: "Boarding was very ease and helpful for my family while I was traveling with kids I appreciate that fact that customer service at boarding was reached out to my wife to help and make us feel great thru the process thanks"

Pros: "Easy boarding. Courteous, helpful and professional crew members."
Cons: "No internet service on long international flight."

Pros: "The personnel are what makes the airline so special. Everyone of them was so nice and so attentive to our needs. Great experience overall."

Pros: "Very attentive flight attendants-very courteous and responsive to all of the folks sitting in the "cheap seats"."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about in the entire process from ticketing through flight and disembarkment"

Pros: "Good food, good service and clean planes."

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."

Pros: "The crew was fantastic!! They saved this rating."
Cons: "Old plane. No power outlet, no wifi, entertainment system was glitchy... if it was not for the crew, this would have been the poorest u could get. Doha security and transfer were unruly, long, and a mess. Terrible experience there. Nearly missed connection. Dreading going through there on return flight"

Pros: "The leg space is what got this flight a 3 star."

Pros: "The QA Crew acted with courage during very severe turbulence, continuing to be professional despite injuries"
Cons: "QA HQ did not respond to the emergency with professionalism. They did a decent job w/hotel accommodation but only the hotel reception provided any communication. Only constant complaints led to food being provided at the airport after a 6 hour wait to board. No compensation was offered by QA when we arrived in Doha. Nothing. Exceptionally poor performance by an airline you expect more from."

Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Leg room was just ok."

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

Cons: "I could not eat the food"

Pros: "On time, good food, flite staff and attendants were friendly and helpful."

Pros: "Great service, comfortable seats, little to no turbulence, all around a great flight!"

Pros: "Variety and regular serving of food. Great entertainment. Very friendly staff."
Cons: "Everything was great - a bit cramped in the seats when people recline, but as expected on all airlines."

Pros: "Great service on the flight."
Cons: "The boarding process with qantas at JFK is chaotic. No one is policed on their seat numbers, status or fare class. this creates a chaotic process for boarding and securing overhead luggage space for higher fare paying customers Very bad lounge at JFK if used to first lounges like Cathay and JAL"

Pros: "The wide selection of free movies and TV shows. The food is tasty!"
Cons: "Our first flight to LAX was delayed by 7 hours so we spent the day in Sydney airport, spending more money on meals that hadn’t been planned. Because of the delay, we missed our connecting flight from LAX to JFK. The flight we were re-booked on was also delayed for mechanical/paperwork issues so we arrived back home in NYC 8 hours later than originally scheduled. This caused us to spend more money on a taxi since it was too late to take public transportation. it also made it difficult to settle back in at home because both my husband and I had to get up early for work the next day and we missed several hours of unpacking and cooking time we would have had had our flight not been delayed."

Pros: "Economy seats were comfy."
Cons: "Food was terrible! Literally inedible."

Pros: "This was the plane flown to and from Brisbane apparently. It's one of the oldest in their fleet. The economy seats were significantly smaller than our flight from Melbourne and the premium economy and business were not as nice either. Really. It comfortable. Crew weren't super friendly but were very professional."

Cons: "Did not receive breakfast and had a cup of coffee wanted a second cup and they said they had already shut everything down and we still had 1.5 hours before landing"

Cons: "They put me in a broken seat in business class for which I had to call a flight attendant every time I wanted to adjust it."

Pros: "Comfortable chairs."
Cons: "With an almost 3 hour delay the lack of information from Qantas staff was infuriating and we were held in what felt like a ‘holding pen’"

Pros: "Friendly Service and free drinks"
Cons: "Long flight"

Cons: "My seat got moved when I had pre-selected them. The power outlet between the seats didn't work so I couldn't use my CPAP. The earphones/jack would only have sound in 1 ear."

Pros: "toddler seat. Staff took care of my family and went out of their way to find us and got us situated."
Cons: "food selection"

Pros: "13 hours might seem long but other carriers had longer flight times. Qantas was friendly and efficient. The flight itself was smooth. The B747-400 aircraft, while old, was comfortable. I slept for most of the flight with the help of some melatonin. The entertainment selection was good. The service was good. I would happily fly Qantas again on my next Australian adventure."
Cons: "The headphone connection in my seat was wonky on both flights to and from SFO-SYD. It was the same aircraft."

Cons: "The flight was delayed by one hour. Because I had to collect my carry-on bag, I missed my connection by 8 minutes. I was re-booked on another flight and was five hours late getting home"

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: "Seamless flight & good service from the cabin staff"
Cons: "Bus from terminal to plane No inflight entertainment"

Cons: "Bags won't arrive for another 24 hours; which means we now have no clothes. Grrr."

Pros: "Great selection of entertainment. Good pillows."
Cons: "They let us know by email little before departure that there would be a delay of 1h 15 min in our arrival to London. This made me uneasy from the very beginning that I would lose my London-Luxembourg flight. The crew in the boarding gate, only after much insisting, said they would make a note so that someone from Qantas would wait for me and help me get my London-Luxembourg flight no problem, but in the next stopovers (Melbourne, Dubai), there was no sign of this. Also, the delay in the end was 2h 20 min - and I lost my flight to Luxembourg."

Cons: "older aircraft"

Pros: "Quantas is great, great food, staff, seats were pretty roomy. Entertainment options were very good."
Cons: "American Airlines. Tiny seats, bad customer services, no entertainment on board, so loud you can't even sleep."

Pros: "Double seats in Economy"
Cons: "Complete lack of separation between seats - minimal room. When the passenger in front reclined. It knocked my very small Qantas bottle over. Non existant leg room. A most Uncomfortable flight back to Melbourne Qantas take a look at Jet Blue. ..this should be your benchmark in Economy Travel...."

Cons: "The complete lack of space between seats Old style plane Very average new movie selection"

Cons: "Having to pay for food in American Airlines codeshare flight."
