Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "In flight food service by cabin crew was spotty, sometimes they gave you coffee with dinner , sometime not, they are very forgetful. Please improve on this issue."
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: "Average flight"
Cons: "Seats on this aircraft have very upright seats. Not very comfy"
Cons: "No complain . It’s singapore airlines"
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: "Yes and yes"
Cons: "Not sure because I have never had a better experience."
Cons: "Entertainment including games such as backgammon, black Jack, and poker are not available although they are on every other airline I used with high quality game programs that are clos to live games"
Pros: "Service was excellent!"
Pros: "Great seats and efficient service all round."
Pros: "Friendly crew and spacious."
Cons: "Food could be better"
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Five Star Singapore Service on board the aircraft."
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: "The lunch and dinner menu was excellent"
Cons: "more bathrooms."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew. Efficient service and good boarding. Seemingly wider seats than the newer A350s."
Cons: "Positively ancient entertainment system with poor selection and bad visual quality. Ads pop up every time you go into another menu. If you're flying SIN->BNE I'd avoid the 7.20am departure, you'll get the old 777-200s rather than the A350s they run on other departures."
Cons: "First experience with Singapore where the crew made a negative impression. As soon as the plane pulled away from the terminal, crew members seemed rushed and frantic, literally running back and forth from Economy Premium to the galley gathering items. Approximately every 7-10 minutes, crew members would be running back and forth next to my seat with heavy foot steps, which would wake me up. I also noticed that certain crew members were shouting at passengers to get their attention instead of lowering themselves to be heard. One flight attendant almost spilled orange juice on me because she turned around too fast trying to serve drinks. I'm not sure if they were short-staffed, or if it was the influence of a certain crew boss, but something was definitely wrong."
Pros: "I booked regular economy and flew to Tokyo that way, but put a bid in for premium economy for the flight home and got it. It's not a big upgrade (bigger display panel, a little more leg room, seat tilt and it has a leg rest) but those things made the flight for me."
Cons: "I don't have much on the down side front aside from the usual "would like more leg room" and "more seat tilt" so nothing new to report"
Cons: "Cabin temperature was really hot."
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Natalie is a friendly cheery diligent flight attendant who needs special mention. (Sigapore to Brusane fight 6.1.18)"
Pros: "Was very old plane but was good"
Cons: "Food and crew was well"
Pros: "Christmas decorations, service, attitude of staff"
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: "I ordered a Indian vegeterian meal. It was very good. I feel bad about all the playin cups, and garbage that gets wasted. Please recycle everything."
Cons: "The plane was very cold. A lot of movies were offered but I couldn't find anything I wanted to watch."
Pros: "ending meal was very late like an hour or less before landing"
Cons: "racial discrimination by the flight attendants thinking that I didn't know Japanese language even though I was white. I could see it happening."
Pros: "Superb service throughout from check in to on flight."
Cons: "Seat on outbound had a slight issue."
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."
Cons: "Need to be able to upgrade with Krisflyer Miles"
Pros: "The crew was very kind and helpful."
Cons: "My daughter had the vegetarian oriental - and it was basically a ball of slim. My son had the lactose free meal and it was broccoli and potatoes. We switched our return flight meals to the regular in-flight meal. It was better, but not great."
Pros: "I always felt attended to, great customer service, clean and best bang for your buck"
Pros: "Singapore service is always outstanding"
Cons: "temp on plane was freezing and even two blankets did not suffice. Everyone was really cold."
Pros: "The air stewardesses took their time to get back to me about a question I posed to them. It took 2 stewardesses and 3 efforts."
Pros: "The attendants were helpful, smiling and friendly. The entire time We flew with an 18 month old and they came looking for us before he flight to help us carry our stuff on board. They gave her a toy, asked for her name, and checked on us often. They also gave my husband and I an option for early food service so that one of us could help our daughter eat. The movie selection was great. Take off, flight and landing were smooth. And we arrive half an hour early both directions!"
Cons: "On my trip to Japan, the staff was incredibly rude. Horrible commendations. The controls didn't work. And the desert had mold in it."
Pros: "Overall very good."
Cons: "Weren't informed of status of connecting flight while in flight. Learnt that the connecting flight was held back on arrival in terminal."
Pros: "Attention to customer service and needs"
Cons: "Couldn't use my own headphones to watch movies"
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: "What did I like??? Um, EVERYTHING! First off I got a great price under $850 round trip to NRT from LAX was a steal! They let you check two large suit cases plus a carry on and a personal item. That all FREE!!! I travel pretty light but it was great to know they don't Nickle and dime you for bags or anything else for that matter. Staff looks amazing and treats you first class even when your in economy. They are so polite and really genuinely want to give you a above and beyond experience. And they over achieve at it! They meals are great and very satisfying. The planes are big and roomy even in economy seats. On our return flight we had a brand new plane which had a sleek touch screen monitor and controller. There mad tons of media available (articles, language games, games, movies, tv shows and more) with USB ports to charge devices on each seat. Plus 10inch personal monitors. Earbuds were included free of charge, aswell as socks toothbrush and tooth paste. They have is two big meals on our direct flight (awesome that they have direct flights). Plus, they offered free snacks too and gave us a full can of soda vs. a small cup. They come through several times offering coffee, tea, water and snacks. All free of charge. This was my first time flying Singapore Airlines and I loved it!!! I wish Everyone was this amazing! Norwegian Airlines was the opposite as far as charging for everything! Had to pay each stop for any luggage ($100 per checked bag). No meals free or charge. They wanted money for everything! And yea a skimpy sandwich was $9.00 :(."
Pros: "We love travelling Singapore Airlines and always try to travel with them if we can"
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: "The crew was amazing!!"
Cons: "This trip was not quite as excellent as my flights on Singapore Airlines usually are; however, I cannot say for sure there was much that airline staff could have done to change this. A great deal of turbulence earlier in the flight made it difficult to enjoy the food. Also, there was a sewage-like smell that wafted through the air periodically - this could have been a child in the surrounding seats, though. Both of these issues seem difficult for the airline staff to address, however, unless the smell actually came from a problem with the ventilation system. The staff was exceptionally helpful and good-natured, though, which made the biggest difference. Thank you so much."
Pros: "I loved the entertainment, the kind staff, and the extras they gave out to try to make us as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "My boyfriend is very tall, 6'6. On the flights to and from, even though he was on he aisle side seat, it was very difficult for him to have enough room for his legs, thus making my space that much less. In the future, I think we would benefit from booking either the seat behind us for him that had more leg room, or the seats in front of us that were the first seats of all rows."
Pros: "Good food and service - great airline"
Cons: "First time flying with EVA and was better than I expected. Crew was super friendly. I had a layover and flight was always on time."
Cons: "Crew at boarding and on flight were not kind. Very disappointing"
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "The beef dinner made me ill. I had no way to pick my seat in the checkin process. The seat I had (K) has an extra box under the seat in front, so it restricted leg room. There were a total of 37 movies to view, over half of which were non-Hollywood."
Cons: "They did not ask me if I want food during the 12 hour flight. They just pass by me and did not give me food. The flight attendant could not speak English so they could not explain when I complained."
Cons: "Should improve food."
Pros: "The whole experience was amazing. For a long flight, I was expecting to be miserable. But I was oddly satisfied. From the nice spacious seats, the the smorgasbord of food (never been fed so much on an airplane) to the excellent staff service I was impressed. Even the bathrooms were clean!"
Cons: "I wish I could’ve chosen to have my meal later. I didn’t ask but it would be nice to have that option since I wanted to sleep when they handed out dinner."
Pros: "That’s be ok"
Pros: "The economy cabin had less oxygen than the premium economy and better. I could not breath with the poor air circulation and had to stand in the front of the 14 hour flight to breath."
Pros: "Great airline best in class."
Cons: "My food was kind of dried up like it had been over microwaved. We were very swished in our seats. Two middle in row of 4. :("

Pros: "Crew was attentive and nice"
Cons: "More space for economy"
Pros: "Being able to check bags and get boarding pass at Taipei Main station prior to boarding MRT (similar to Hong Kong) is a very useful convenience. EVA staff there were extremely pleasant and helpful."

Cons: "Seats were crammed, not enough width or legroom. Staff not that friendly. Food was alright but nothing to write home about"

Pros: "The specifically enjoy the 1st class treatment and excellent foods served by the flight attendants. By pure coincident, a passenger fainted near me, I was able to see the professionalism displayed by the flight attendents."

Pros: "Flight was on time. Plane was clean and facilities were kept in good order. MUCH better than flying on United."
Cons: "the food was a shame"
Cons: "Since I traveled with my daughter (4yo), I got to board early from LAX to TPE but my second flight from TPE to BKK, I had to wait till they called my zone seat. I was holding my daughter at that point since they took away my stroller way earlier than the boarding time. I would like to ask for the same standard of parents traveling with children who are 6 or younger to board first so they can get settle and these patents are tiring from dealing with their children during the flight. They are extra tired than regular passengers."
Cons: "Crew was not very nice. Always in a hurry. Customer service was not good"
Pros: "Great food"
Cons: "Not enough movies for selection"
Pros: "helpful staff at check in in jfk airport. flights were not too crowded. only one stop to final destination."
Cons: "delay for more than one hour from jfk airport"
Pros: "I like EVA because they were very kind."

Pros: "Nice attendants"
Cons: "I got food poisoning!"
Pros: "For a close to full flight the boarding procedure was quick and efficient. We were able to leave early and get to our destination an hour early. The in flight entertainment was not the widest selection but still had a wonderful selection of movies"
Cons: "For such a long flight the seats are very uncomfortable. The flight cabin doesn't seem to have a flow which is depressing cause they are a big part of the experience"
Pros: "fantastic flight experience. the aircraft was clean neat and comfortable. i loved how they kept the restrooms so clean even through a 13.5 hour flight. I slept through dinner but the western style breakfast was good. The crew was attentive and polite."
Pros: "This was my first time flying Eva. Overall a positive experience. Crew and staff were professional and polite."
Cons: "I was a little frustrated when standing in line to check in in Taipei. Only one active agent, a very long line and about six Eva employees chatting in the administrative area."
Pros: "The economy seats were okay, not much leg room. The staff let us know when there was a delay on the tarmac. the plane was clean."
Cons: "Two of my friends who at the chicken ended up getting food poisoning on the Bangkok to Tai Pei leg of our trip. Not fun for the 12 hour flight to Los Angeles. The food left something to be desired."
Pros: "Staff is alright."
Cons: "Bad bad bad I book so 2 or 3 months early but I can't even choose my own seat in the front row. After my connection from taipei to Vietnam they don't even put me and my husband sit together."
Pros: "I enjoyed the movies."
Cons: "I did not see any cabin crew walk through the cabin to check customer offering water or walk through for entire flight after each meal service. I wish they were more attentive since it was a very long flight. Also There was only one greeter at the end of the flight at door 1 when we exit the plane. Rest of crews were not attentive or communities at the end of the flight. Not even one single cabin crews say thank you to customers flying with EVA Air."
Pros: "The seat is comfortable."
Pros: "Crew was extremely friendly as expected from Cathay. The aircraft was substituted from the scheduled A350-800 to an A330 but it still had lie flat seats, just not as nice. The crew was very apologetic for the last minute schedule change."
Cons: "Nothing can be done about the aircraft swap, I’m happy they swapped with an aircraft with lie flat seats as I was exhausted and needed the rest before landing in HKG."
Pros: "Everything was great ❣️"
Cons: "✨Nothing ✨"
Pros: "Nice entertainment on this flight, modern movies and TV programs. The food was good, more than enough to fill you up on a 4.5 hr flight."
Cons: "The business class configuration on the 777s operates on this flight is not worth the extra price paid. I found that the level of recline (120 degrees) made my back ache and it just wasn’t comfortable. I’ve flown this flight several times now and this is an issue for me. I’d like to arrive refreshed"
Pros: "All no!"
Cons: "Seats are too close!"
Pros: "Crew were super nice and friendly. Great selection of movies. Seemed to more washrooms than most planes; no long lines."
Cons: "Interior was dated; seat didn’t recline properly. Boarding was a bit hit and miss; no zones or row priorities, just one big line. Wine with dinner wasn’t the best."
Cons: "Delay without infromation"
Pros: "Easy and quick boarding"
Cons: "We sat in the bulk head economy seats for the extra leg room, but instead it was used as a pass through for the flight attendants and for other passengers. This was an older plane and there wasn’t an aisle cross over, very annoying! The chicken pie was scorching hot and no serving utensils."
Pros: "My flight was delayed, at check-in I was offered an earlier flight that was departing in 40 minutes. Because premium economy was full I was upgraded to business class"
Cons: "not getting any AA miles for economy / economy plus tickets on Cathay. Will make me consider flying alternatives like Thai next time"
Pros: "Polite crew, good food"
Cons: "Newer plane on flight from HKG to sFo"
Cons: "Dirty bathrooms, freezing cold cabin, paper thin blankets provided"
Pros: "The flight attendants were kind and attentive and professional. I enjoyed being able to watch movies of my choice. Great selection of entertainment available. Food was good and the Hagen Daze ice cream was a great surprise!"
Cons: "I’m thin but 177cm tall (long legs) so the seats were wide but leg room was uncomfortable for me. Also, the posture of the seats are not good for spinal or neck alignment so, again not comfortable. No support for the lower back and very limited reclinablity."
Cons: "The flight crew was courteous and very accommodating"
Cons: "Slow and old entertainment system. Bad seats"
Pros: "Food was good, comfy seats. Nice crew."
Pros: "Attentive attendants made the process much easier/ great flight"
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: "On this trip being able to sleep huge a huge benefit"
Pros: "Business class passengers use Qantas lounge in Brisbane - fresh and well stocked. Boarding was hassle free and flat beds were very comfortable. Crew were helpful while being very busy."
Cons: "We had seats in the centre but ate at totally different times. Left aisle and right aisle worked a different schedule - annoying. Entertainment very high tech but odd selections."
Cons: "I checked in online, printed the boarding passes as I know japan probably isn’t ready for phone apps for checking in. When I went to the counter, despite being the one holding all the documents (and having organized the whole travel itinerary, the staff only spoke to my husband (Whi hadn’t a clue about the journey) in Japanese. They proceeded to check us in on their computer and insisted that we use their paperwork, not mine. What a farce. What a waste of paper and my time."
Cons: "The plane couldn’t take off on time. Delayed arrival at HK and our connecting flight didn’t want to wait for us."
Pros: "I took the economy premium class. It was great. Seats very comfortable. Dinner was great."
Cons: "Breakfast - the omelette was not done, but other than that if was good. The dim-sam was good."
Pros: "The food was good."
Cons: "We were sitting at te back and it was very cold. Not sure why. They ran out of chicken for lunch."
Cons: "Original itinerary was not followed. Flight from manila to hongkong was late. We arrived hongkong and was informed that our flight has been rebooked even though we can see that the plane was still there and staffs are still at the gate. We were transferred to a layover flight from HongKong to Aussie then Aussie to Auckland instead of going straight. Seats was set far apart with no competitions at all. Sorry is not enough for this big hassle."
Cons: "The seats seemed like they had no padding and it kept stabbing me in the back. Seat belts were so thick and hard i couldn't lean in any direction to get comfortable as it would stab me. My partner and I were also seated separately. Painful flight, disappointed."
Pros: "Food is ok."
Cons: "Washrooms are small and dirty."
Pros: "The ground staff helped me get on board the flight despite a transit delay that caused me to arrive at the check-in counter a few minutes into boarding time. I have no complaints about the in-flight staff. Our flight arrived a few minutes early to our destination."
Cons: "It would be nice if the meal menus had allergy information printed on them. The plane was equipped with an older entertainment center, and some of the control buttons were a little unreliable. These are minor complaints, however."
Cons: "We opted for wheel chair but in Hong Kong we were nor given wheelchair and not informed about it to the passengers. They were not guided to the required flight destination in Hong Kong. When requested for some fruits during their flight they were not given any fruits or juice also."
Pros: "Entertainment was good. There was a lot of movies to choose from."
Cons: "Not enough padding on the seats for long distance travel. Not enough leg room. Not enough baggage bin over top of your seat people from other seats put their luggage on your overhead bins."
Cons: "A white hair found inside the main course. The crew return it back to you."
Pros: "Excellent service, lucked out into a flight that wasn't full for once and was able to sleep."
Cons: "Food could have been better. Pasty potatoes and soft vegetables. Ice cream though :)"
Pros: "I really appreciated that Cathay flew another plane in to pick us up when our original aircraft was mechanically grounded at the previous destination. The crew were very professional."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed due to mechanical failure and didn't arrive from its destination: Taipei. We were not told about the possibility of our flight being cancelled as we arrived at check-in, we were allowed to check our bags first, issued boarding passes and *then* we were told to come back to check in counter in 3.5-4 hours. Our checked luggage had already been taken and with it, clean clothes, toiletries and other items that could have made the waiting more comfortable. After coffee and a snack we decided to check in to the capsule hotel at Narita. Minimum stay was one night at that hour of the day - for stays after 6pm. While I appreciated that Cathay got us out later that evening, the plane we flew was one of the oldest in the fleet: the seats did not recline at all so it was very uncomfortable. It was a late night flight but no one was offered pillows or blankets. (I did receive one upon request). We arrived in Hong Kong in the early hours of the next morning - 3 hours late - after the airport train had finished running so I paid for a taxi home which I normally would not need to do since I already had a train ticket. so my flight experience did cost me some extra money this trip."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "1-hour delay due to inclement weather"
Cons: "The first flight to Hongkong was delayed for 1 hour, so the connecting flight to London was change to a flight 10 hours later. Then that 2nd rescheduled connecting flight moved 10 hours later was AGAIN delayed!!! Wasted 1 day that would have been spent nicely in London. What a way to ruin our London vacation by Cathay Pacific."
Pros: "Flight attendant spoke good Mandarin and was willing to continue to speak it even to someone who didn't look like a Chinese speaker - unlike some Chinese airlines where they launch into English assuming that if you don't look Chinese you can't speak Chinese."
Cons: "A glass of wine or beer would have been lovely."
Pros: "Nice flight great service"
Cons: "I like everything"
Cons: "Child in seat behind hitting screen in back of headrest (play a game on it) while I was trying to sleep in the middle of the night"
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "Boarding is messy. Just one very long queue for everyone in economy. No method for organizing by groups. So if you are unlucky, you might end up with no luggage space in the overhead bins that are supposed to be for passengers at that point. Food was a measly 'roll' with generic water diluted juice."
Pros: "Entertainment Nice crew from Japan"
Cons: "Crew is not heart felt welcome the guest at all, changing face when ask for a blanket or other customers' request. Take long time for baggage check-in even we did for online check-in."
Cons: "Need a little extra leg room"
Pros: "Crew/staff very professional,"
Pros: "Boarding was a bit of a free-for-all even though they called specific rows. Still, it went fast and everything else was fine. Seats were as comfortable as can be expected for economy. Food was pretty good, entertainment was great and the crew was polite and helpful."
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "More water should be offered throughout the flight"
Pros: "Great service, very polite and concerned with the passenger's well being."
Cons: "Nothing needed to be changed. It was a good flight and I had a good experience."
Pros: "All around great value. Good food, nice staff, cabin pressure is better because the plane was newer."
Pros: "Comfortable economy seating, polite cabin attendants, and nice lunch!"
Pros: "The crew did fine and the food was OK."
Cons: "There was almost no information about what was happening with the delays. You need to do a better job of disseminating information. The food voucher was nice but it was all word of mouth among the passengers. To have a 5 hour delay is tough. You should have better charging facilities at your gates. You could only stand and charge and the plugs were all Hong Kong/English specific. Nothing universal about those plugs. I had to borrow an adapter to charge my laptop during the delay. The spicy fish dish tasted like it had been fouled during the delay. I like spicy fish generally but this tasted tainted."
Pros: "It was disappointing . Crew was good."
Cons: "Entertainment system was not working. Food was below standard. Boarding was also late."
Pros: "Good service. Flight attendants are nice, food is not bad. Seats are not bad for economy."
Cons: "The entertainment system constantly plays media you can't control during the full takeoff and landing times, you can't even turn off the screen. This was particularly annoying during a nighttime landing. Also most of the movies had their content edited."
Cons: "Check-in was poorly organized in Narita. Bag Drop off only took longer than regular check-in"
Cons: "Provide cover for eyes so that we can sleep better"
Pros: "Entertainment selection"
Cons: "Food and drink selections were ok only. They ran out of one option for dinner."
Pros: "Lovely crew, good amount of food and drink available."
Cons: "Sound on some of the entertainment options was too low to hear, so I ended up using my phone instead."
Pros: "Like the seats, in flight entertainment and in flight staff are friendly."
Cons: "Did not like baggage fees for flying with Ice Hockey Goalie gear. Was dinged a monsterous $634 for baggage fees due to being over weight and over size on my goalie gear. Really it cant be made any smaller or lighter. THEN DINGED AGAIN for sticks as an over sized item again ! WTF ! Most other airlines label it as sporting goods and I pay the overweight fee, usually $150 CAD. Not this airline ! I could have booked another person for return flight and only added $300 to my bill ! Utter ridiculous how bad I got raped on this. Ok over weight yes. But over weith + oversize + oversize is a bit much !"
Pros: "Good movie selection, nice attendants"
Cons: "The 2nd meal was tasteless and didn’t have the ingredient as the name suggested, a Chinese pickled veggie"
Pros: "Service was efficient and responsive ."

Cons: "Flight was booked to capacity."
Pros: "Everything! Well organized boarding procedure (but it helps when the other passengers are well mannered, unlike flying in the USA) and started boarding EXACTLY the time they stated on the notice boards. Friendly crew and very helpful! Tasty meal albeit a bit lean on offerings on the tray."
Pros: "The staff was very efficient. They even helped wrap my broken bag. Thank you for that extra mile!"
Cons: "I was pleased with everything."
Pros: "People are nice..."
Cons: "Foods are not good"
Cons: "When two people are travelling together and adjoining seats were needed, it was impossible to make the seat changes online. Only one seat was able to be moved. We finally had to wait to ask crew members at check-in. It was an anxious time."
Pros: "Enjoyed everything about my flight.Awesome service from the crew most welcoming.Plenty of leg room and comfortable seating.I have already recommend this airline to family and friends."
Pros: "They got us there. Good movie selection. Good wine"

Pros: "The flight crew were extremely friendly and nice."
Cons: "I had a pleasant ride. So I enjoyed my trip"
Pros: "The interior was clean and spacious. Overall pretty comfortable flight. About average in-flight entertainment system."
Cons: "They gave me a tray without the main entree on it for breakfast and said they'd come back. Gave everyone in front of and behind me their food as far as I could tell. Then they never came back. I wasn't particularly hungry and neither was my girlfriend who was next to me, so we split her food, but still, pretty weak."
Pros: "The crew memebers were very kind and assisted in any way possible."
Cons: "The seats were not that comfortable and very close together. Very booked flight"
Pros: "It really was a fine flight. The complaints are minor."
Cons: "The seat-back entertainment systems were more annoying than the usual ones. Hard to read words on the display. The drink service used quite small cups, smaller than the ones that seem to be universal otherwise, and she only filled it 2/3 of the way!"

Cons: "offer water more often"
Pros: "Enjoyed the food and entertainment. Leg room was a bit tighter than what I'm used to. Otherwise decent flight."

Pros: "Crew was very helpful and polite. Food is decent for an airline."
Cons: "Seat size is VERY small."
Pros: "good entertainment options."
Cons: "food was not very good. The hot towels were cold. There was no one from China Airlines to help the 50 minute delayed passengers from the BKK to Teipei flight get through security and transfer to Teipei to SFO flight. It was very hectic with large crowds at security gates."
Pros: "That we were provided with seat belts."
Cons: "The level of uncomfortableness rivaled that of Spiritair. From friction burns on the knees from the seat directly in front of you, to virtually hosting your front neighbor's head in your lap when they recline. And I'm all of 5'8"! Even though easily +90% of the passengers were Americans, Australians, New Zealanders and Europeans, and that the flight was between 2 English speaking countries, we were addressed in Mandarin Chinese. Reminds me a bit of Air Canada with their often French bias."
Pros: "Entertainment - good choices of movies and newer LCDs."
Cons: "Compared to Delta where they proactively offer unli cocktails and drinks to business class and comfort, I've never had one offer in my return trip. Had a technical malfunction twice which caused me to miss my 7am connecting flight by 2 mins. The next plane didn't even bother to wear for 2 mins even if they caused the delay. They gave a 250NT lunch voucher and asked to what til the next flight in the afternoon. That was the longest flight I experienced coming from New York."
Pros: "- Very helpful flight attendants - Surprisingly decent airline food"
Cons: "the air hostesses could have been a bit more accommodating, welcoming, pleasant, willing and smiling."
Pros: "I liked most of the crew. They were courteous and attentive. They were also very helpful in getting passengers situated and seated. I also like that when I had an issue with a crew member a manager and her boss both came to talk to me about what happened and offered apologies. They handled the situation with respect and class."
Cons: "There were two things I didn't like. First was that my on board entertainment set top was not working and I had to change seats. Once in a new seat though I was good and comfortable until a crew member had issues with my placement in an empty row that he wanted to use later in the flight to take a nap. What he did next was not nice, lacked communication and almost ruined the long flight for me. If it wasn't for the rest of the crew being great and his managers apologizing and listening to the full complaint I would probably have decided never to take China airlines again. Will I fly China airlines again? Yes, I will."
Pros: "Cabin crew was great. Good service"
Cons: "Boarding was poorly organized."
Pros: "Taipei is a nice airport to make connections through, with amenities on par with Seoul. Seemed much cleaner and more relaxed than other airports in the region that I've flown through in the past, such as Guangzhou or Hong Kong."
Cons: "Flight departed 25 minutes late, but Taipei is a nice airport to make connections through. Still had to go through security between arrival/departure gates, but lines were short at our time of night. Crew seemed a bit tired, since this seems to be the last leg of their shift before rotating out in BKK before the plane goes on to Amsterdam."
Pros: "I liked that I eventually arrived to my destination and was able to go home."
Cons: "Was not notified that my flight was cancelled. Remained on hold for over 2 hours as I had to beg and plead with China Airlines to find and place me on another flight that was not days after my original arrival date. Did not get any form of an apology or upgrade for the stress and inconvenience caused by the last minute cancellation. Taipei to LAX: had to wait in line to check in for 1.5 hours, as there were only 3 China Airline people working the check in desks, I have posted a video on instagram of the massive line that I stood in. https://instagram.com/p/BHobbM0A6mP/"
Pros: "The food was decent and well timed. The entertainment was great. Personal tv. Great seat in the exit row."
Pros: "I love the friendly and helpful staff. Such nice people."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Boarding process very efficient Slightly more leg room"
Cons: "Seat slightly narrower, slightly more uncomfortable Nice soft blankets Cabin too warm"
Pros: "The girls at the China Airline counter saw i was really worried and freaking out about my flight and they helped me to the fullest."
Cons: "I couldn't check in early cause Kayak gives a confirmation number and nothing else. I had to wait in the counter line instead of skipping it like i would do with most travel sites. I was very close to missing my flight but thank god they had a delay. I also left early for problems like these and still had difficulties. And it's impossible to call Kayak, especially if you live in Japan like me."
Pros: "I liked that this particular flight wasn't fully booked because it meant that I had space to relax, including the use of the a provided blanket and pillow. I also enjoyed the food and drink options as well."
Cons: "I didn't like that I was unable to check-in to the flight until just 2.5 hours before my flight. I like to be at the airport early in case of any mishaps or hangups, and not being able to check in until that point just made me feel a little pressed for time."
