Cons: "Air port does not have automatic internet connection We were there for 8 hours with no internet because we had no international roaming to receive the PIN via SMS. The four PINS generated by the counter staff did not work. We all took turn to try to no avail. by then we have walked too far from the counter we could not be bother going back. No airport that I've been to had poor internet service connection like this airport, yet it is supposed to be THE WORLD'S NUMBER ONE AIRLINE. We boarded at 11.30pm, last time we flew with them they gave us supper. Last night they gave us only water. We went to sleep hungry till the morning. Since when they started to operate like those cheap airlines that you have to pay for your food? And the night package did not have eye mask.... how could we sleep... ? Singapore airline could learn from Qtar. Very very disappointed."
Pros: "Got bumped to Business Class"
Pros: "excellent - comfy plane, great service, excellent stuff."

Cons: "Getting on a cattle car to go to another terminal and then get in line again to go on the plane"

Pros: "Prompt boarding, friendly service, decent food, plentiful entertainment. Singapore Airlines was a great choice for my flight from Texas to England."

Cons: "Way too cold"
Pros: "more room in the seats - excellent hostesses who are so friendly and helpful - lovely food."

Pros: "I've always flown Singapore airlines wherever possible. Standards are unbeatable until this flight..."
Cons: "The dinner was terrible. I am a long time customer of Singapore Airlines and I know where the standard are. The food on this flight was the worst I've seen. The starter (vermicelli) was overly salty, dry and severely undercooked. The main course was acceptable but the portion of chicken was more like side dish not main. Missing sides."
Pros: "Free seat next to me. Brilliant entertainment Very tasty food Excellent service"
Cons: "Nothing! Best daytime flight to europe! And home before midnight"
Cons: "Flight delayed twice without informing us the reason, and after boarding, we waited for v long to take off also"
Pros: "Food was good"
Pros: "Everything great personnel"
Cons: "Food was. Not available. They said they don't have extra veg food . I selected beg food still it shows them non veg and I was pass my way with empty stomach"
Cons: "Need to be able to upgrade with Krisflyer Miles"
Pros: "Main Entree hot"
Cons: "Cold bread; dessert similar sweetened gak"
Pros: "We did not die in a hellacious ball of flame Aviation incident!"
Cons: "Bulkhead seating (required for bassinet) Row 41, my seat was practically in the aisle. No where to put my feet without getting trodden on by everyone! Broken entertainment screen, would not stay upright, due to several hundred thousand past passengers bashing into it after having first trodden on the unfortunate passengers feet! Crew unresponsive with drink and food requests, I had to ask for services multiple times on several occasions. Pressing my 'attendant button' my light was lit for 10 minutes before a crew member noticed. My first trip on Singapore, my expectations were not met. Shame"
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: "New plane"
Cons: "Food served 40 min after special meals"
Pros: "my wife had injured her ankle on our trip. as a result she was walking with the aid of a cane. the crew anticipated her needs and asked her to board early without us requesting."
Pros: "Everything is suport wonderful"
Cons: "Price. it's better"
Pros: "Staff on board were lovely."
Cons: "I asked to be placed in a seat as close to the front as possible as I suffer from motion sickness in the back of the plane. I was placed in the back row all the way to my destination and all the way home. I vomited 8 times and felt very sick. I did notice that there were many seats available in the front of the plane but they are never given out as women with babies and children always get them and then single travellers like myself are made sit in the back. I travel a lot, I usually fly Qantas and they are very good at providing seats closer to the front. I will be reluctant to fly Singapore Airlines again due to the fact that they were not accommodating at all."
Pros: "The overall experience was good. Crews are friendly and approachable. Food taste good."
Cons: "Beware of babies on board."
Pros: "Great staff. Aircrafts has more leg room. The food and entertainment was good as well."
Cons: "Plane was delayed and no apologies were made. We had to rush to our connecting flight."
Cons: "Same food options as previous flight Not as many movie options as the longer flight"
Pros: "Excellent service, food, in-flight entertainment (what choices!!), and the plane was very up to date as well. Made for a very very pleasant flight experience. Especially for how long the flight was (18 hours or so)"
Cons: "The get out and get back in halt at Hong Kong. Practically the entire flight had to do this, quite wasteful. Bad customer experience. Find a better way please! If Hong Kong makes you do that switch over to another airport, better yet make no halt. I have flown direct from SF to Singapore before so not sure why this halt."
Pros: "Crew staff were excellent. Food was pretty good. Overall trip was flawless including and early arrival. The A350 aircraft feels roomy. Most importantly, given the total duration of the flight, it was a pretty good experience on-board."
Cons: "The seats and especially the hand-rests on the A350 seem very slim and flimsy. The movies choices in the in-flight entertainment were wanting."
Pros: "It’s OK"
Cons: "Need improvements"
Pros: "Crew was amazing. Service is top notch. You get to eat whatever you want whenever you want (no fixed time for menu serving)."
Cons: "The in flight internet should be of better value for business travelers. Emirates offers full flight connection for business and first class."
Pros: "Super easy check in. Good air hosting staff."
Cons: "Same as ALWAYS - Beijing baggage pickup is an absolute joke. Takes forever and it is generally mayhem in the baggage hall. They really need to get ahold of this space and the behaviour of Chinese travelers."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic. In seat entertainment had great selection, but dated screens."
Pros: "Luxury and spacious toilets"
Cons: "Amount of food was not enough from Hong Kong to Abu Dhabi."
Pros: "Crew was super friendly and helpful. Had good seats, we were able to change them at bag drop. Smooth flight and good entertainment and food"
Cons: "Crew was very rude when giving veg meals. Even though we had confirmed veg meals multiple times with the airline prior to boarding, they still did not know that we had a specially requested Meal. After notifying the crew of this, one member gave us an extra meal. Another extremely rude staff member then proceeded to yell at us for eating meal. This was extremely uncalled for and has severly ruined the reputation of this airline in our eyes. The customer should still be addressed with some common courtesy and not be treated as if they are beneath the crew members, as if we are at fault for the crew's own carelessly stupid mistakes and lack of organization and proper communication"
Pros: "Breakfast was slightly better than dinner choice"
Cons: "Window seat is quite cramped and I am not sure why I had to pay to choose a seat before this flight but not for my previous flight to Singapore which resulted in me getting one of the last seats available which was a pretty cramped window seat. Also too many repetitive announcements"
Cons: "The on boarding staff was rude and unhelpful. The seats of the same ticket were not issued aside each other. The food is below mediocre compared to Emirates. Would take Emirates anytime over Ethihad moving forward."
Pros: "Only process of boarding."
Cons: "Everything else was not close to other comparative airlines. Food was horrible. Just FYI, cottage cheese is not the only food for Asian vegetarians. There actually are many other options. Not enough options for entertainment. The seats for economy class were way too crammed. With the growth in technology, it would be helpful to have a USB port to charge. ELL phones."
Cons: "We lost an item and while we are in airport waiting for next flight even though we know it would have got recovered by airport staff there is no way of getting it back unless we download a form online , print , fill the form and sign , scan and send it in email to lost and found team. This is unlikely and complex process for anyone while in airport to get access to print, scan etc. we wish this was more simpler process Cabin was too cold and staff deny bluntly to make any adjustment saying some other set of passengers complained that cabin is warm.. I have not seen anyone who could sit around with out blanket on them and we had to get double blankets and wrap ourselves in there"
Pros: "Could not fault anything... great boarding. Service, food and flightsnothing...."
Cons: "Nothing..... the staff could not be more helpful if they tried"
Cons: "Very old aircraft"
Pros: "Overall flying experience especially the landings smooth very smooth"
Cons: "Crew seem hurried"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable even though it was full. Punctual too."
Cons: "Not able to check in on line. Had to queue for 50 minutes at the check in desk. The passport control was almost as bad . I arrived at the airport 1 hour and 45 minutes before departure. By the time I had check in and pass through passport control and security it was just 20 minutes until flight departure time"
Pros: "Everything was great. Crew was very nice. Food good. Not too crowded."
Cons: "Seems like the plane needed to be retired compared to others. The tech was old."
Pros: "Customer service at the desk was terrible. Also, proceeded to tell me my checked bag would be over $400!!!! Needless to say, I walked to emirates and booked with them. Sad."
Pros: "Staff was polite and curtious"
Pros: "The crew was very kind to my seatmate who needed help filling out some forms. Though they didn't speak her language they found someone nearby who could help."
Cons: "The boarding process was a mess"
Pros: "I'd never flown Etihad before and had a 13 hour flight followed by a 5 hour flight with them so I went in with fingers crossed for a good experience. My flight from JFK to Abu Dhabi was on an A380 and it was a spectacular plane. The crew was amazing the entertainment selection was great, the bathrooms were clean - it was a great experience."
Cons: "I have no complaints other than it would have been nice to be able to go online and have a look at my seating & have the option to change my seat. Fortunately I didn't need to change my seat but it would be nice to have the option to at least look."
Pros: "Nice 777"
Cons: "Quality of the food very bad"
Pros: "Flight was on time, food was average ."
Cons: "Crew was bit rude"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for around an hour, without any prior notice."
Cons: "Food was bland and weird combinations. Give a chapati or rice with curry."
Pros: "Crew was good. Food was OK."
Cons: "While going Airport staff was not at all good at Chicago airport. I had a carry on bag, which I had been using in all other airlines as carry on for last couple of years and never was told that the size is not right. I was asked to either check in carry on as extra baggage and pay $300 or put my carry on stuff in my other checked in baggage and pay extra for over limit $120. And I have to trash my carry on of $80 value. I was not at all happy. I noticed in the flight so many passengers have the same size carry on, which I have to trash. On my return journey from Delhi to Abu Dhabi I was talking to a woman in the security line, who was sharing the same experience and she told me that they charge her $400 for one extra suitcase. To me that was shocking as how come I was asked $300 for extra checked in bag and she was charged $400. No idea what kind of policies Etihad has for extra baggage. I would like Etihad management to pay attention to the airport staff dealings with customers."

Pros: "the flight was half full so we could really stretch out."
Pros: "On time. Plane was clean. Security clearance was good."
Cons: "Food quantity and quality dropped to zero. Absolutely disappointed. I had travelled with etihad before. But this time I feel like not to travel with them again. In a 14 hour flight hardly one meal with 10 hour gap. Imagine if some one traveling with diabetic needs"
Pros: "Blanket was provided."
Cons: "The crew attendant who checked me at Delhi airport informed that the flight to Abu Dbabi to Istanbul was a full flight and therefore the only option was to have a seat in the middle. However, near the end of my flight I went to the bathroom and noticed there were MANY open seats with more than a handful of people that had a whole row to themselves. I wonder where she got her information because what she shared with me was totally false and I am totally appaled. Also, very, very long lines to check in taking more than one hour to get boarding tickets. It is freezing on both planes."
Cons: "Food selection.in the morning, you don't want to eat dinner food. Should be breakfast."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly, greeted us with a smile, and were there to help when needed."
Cons: "The food was bad. Requested for Asian Vegetarian Meal on Etihad website but was served the vegetarian option. I also heard a passenger complaining that she requested for a vegetarian food but was given a meal with chicken."
Pros: "Service in the Economy class was a nightmare. The air hostesses do not respond fast, take hours to get a glass of water and sometimes even don't bother to get you what you have asked for."
Pros: "Good service. On time. Comfy lie-flat seats"
Cons: "On bok-aug night time flight rich Arab family with two nannies and 3 kids in b class. Kids did not have their own seats. Kids terrorized the entire cabin. Parents could not care less. Flight attendants helpless."
Pros: "First time on Etihad. Would definitely fly them again if possible"
Cons: "Etihad doesn't have a consistent baggage policy. The line manager at the checkin did not stand by the company. Not ready to give a written statement of what they told me at the check-in counter. Customers are held hostage with the inconsistent policies and what ever they relay to you, you do not have any option but abide by that or cancel the trip."
Pros: "Despite being a totally full flight, it was comfortable, with prompt food service, friendly service and good entertainment options. Gluten-free meal was good quality."
Cons: "- Dated entertainment system compared to newer Etihad aircraft. - Etihad entertainment only available in the air, not gate-to-gate like other carriers such as Virgin Australia."
Pros: "Overall everything was excellent"
Cons: "Food was too salty! Crew needs to be more helpful if passengers are non English speaking; they could show them how to stretch the chair and pull it up while eating. Crew could also ask passengers what kind of movies or entertainment they like and show them how to operate!"
Pros: "The service"
Pros: "They provide the hotel in Abu Dhabi ."
Cons: "The food was horrible. kids mile request was ignored."
Cons: "i did not get my luggage yet"
Cons: "The comfort for a long haul flight is never great, but the seats were exceptionally small and cramped (and I am a small person). The in flight internet I purchased but was unable to use after being charged for more that one email -- it went out and stayed out. $22 down the lost unless I can get refunded, which I have requested. If Etihad doesn't refund me, I will be taking it up with Paypal as well as other review sites and business channels."
Pros: "The food was was alright."
Cons: "Major first flight to Abu Dhabi has been canceled. That took place around 5 hours. Then the whole journey has been rebooked and I reached the final destination after 10 hours of the previous schedule with lost baggage."
Pros: "I thought that the crew working the flight from Abu Dhabi to Doha, was especially efficient, There is so little time to do all the things that they have to do, They however seem to do it well, and at the same time make it look easy."
Cons: "I do not like having to take a bus to and fro the terminal in Abu Dhabi. Especially when the connections are short."
