Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew was super nice and the food was good (for plane food)! Really appreciated that they had snacks and chocolate on hand for hungry passengers throughout the flight. A 17 hour plane ride is never the best, but Singapore Air made it as pleasant as possible. Also, we booked on Kayak and was routed through a third party vendor JustFly, which I was a little worried about - but our booking went off without a hitch."
Pros: "I liked the size of the cups for drinks: smaller than usual."
Cons: "You could train some of your crews to behave more polite to the customers like they do in the Japanese airlines. Male crews tended to be nicer than female crews."
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: "Everything is perfect, the crew services are very warm and professional, I strongly believe that Singapore airlines is the best in world as I tried many airlines but I don’t see like their them, I will strongly recommend and I will be their customer for any flight to Far East inshaallah."
Cons: "I recommend if they can provide paid massage service ( not complementary)at the suits class for long trip because there’s enough space to do it , I’m very glad to congratulate them for the level of service they reached ."

Pros: "Crew was very courteous, went above and beyond."
Pros: "Friendly crew and spacious."
Cons: "Food could be better"
Pros: "Everything, perfect flight"
Cons: "5 crying babies on a red eye. Don’t know if that can be prevented."
Pros: "Service was excellent, always with a smile."
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: "Basics are covered. TV screen is big but otherwise nothing special."
Cons: "It is so annoying they want you to pay an extra $20 to pre book any seat. If you need the extra $20 that much, charge me in the original fare! Don't nickel and dime me. At check in they couldn't even get my child seated beside me although a change was made last minute at the gate. Every other airline I've flown recently was better. Sri Lankan and Emirates FAR better service."
Cons: "Ran out of options for dinner and could not eat the macaroni cheese they had on offer, so got 2 small packets of nuts instead...international flight running out of food options? Pretty slack. A part of the interior wall fell off onto my foot upon take off and I had to hold it in place for a while until a hostess came....doesn’t give you the best feeling when the plane starts breaking on take off. One of the male stewards was appalling towards a young mum I sat next too...too the extent of giving her dirty looks because she spilled a bit of water on the seat and then told her she had to pack everything away she was using, including the baby wipes! I stepped in and told him how this was not ok and all other staff members were helpful and he was making this Mum upset. He should not be working for such a people friendly reputable airline! Maybe Jetstar instead! Was appalled at the entire flight to be honest!"
Pros: "Food, service"
Pros: "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: "Nice and attentive crew"
Cons: "Seat in the economy class is cramped and although the movie selection is quite ok, but the lack of touchscreen is quite annoying"
Pros: "Very organized"
Cons: "Seats could be a bit more comfortable in premium economy"
Pros: "Staying in a hotel for 24 hours."

Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "All the crews were friendly and helpful!"
Cons: "I wanted to watch Hindi movies with subtitles..."

Pros: "Wonderful and warm crew made me feel at home. Loads of entertainment but best of all, comfortable seat/bed allowed for a goodnight's sleep!"
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"
Pros: "Staff are very friendly and good ."
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: "Best serves ever will fly every time"
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 food wss delicious which was surprising. The lamb stew with fresh peas was delicious, and I don't even like peas!"

Pros: "For as long 14 hour journey they sure make it comfortable."
Pros: "Friendly staff, excellent customer service, great food"
Pros: "Aircraft was OK."
Cons: "Cabin crew service can definitely be better. Should offer more snacks for long flights."

Pros: "Excellent service provided by crew"
Cons: "Food needs improvement"
Cons: "Internet connection at airport and lounge is not good"
Cons: "Again very impressed with Qatar Airways service on the board"
Cons: "Catering load was poorly estimated. They'd run out of my first choice of brunch despite being in the first row (apparently pancakes are "really popular with the kids" but they don't load extra to account for this). Also ran out of my main choice."
Cons: "I was not able to fly"
Pros: "Very nice aircraft , crew, and supplies"
Cons: "Flight delayed, so missed connecting flight and stuck in Qatar for 13 hours on top of a 22 hour regular flight schedule"
Cons: "Need to improve wheel chair service at Doha."
Pros: "The entertainment was reasonable, I enjoyed the festive choices."

Pros: "Good aircraft, crew attentive."
Cons: "Food was poor."
Pros: "Modern plane and great crew."
Pros: "The crew, especially Martin and Imen, were fabulous!"
Pros: "I liked their customer service, food, and the flight attendants were friendly. They have a very nice shopping mall at Hamad International Airport in Doha, Qatar."
Cons: "They have less space to move your feet and after a while your left knee begins to hurt because you have been sitting in the plane for a long time. Whenever I asked to get a drink of water or soft drinks, it took the flight attendant 10-15 minutes to arrive with my drink. I understand she was occupied with other duties, but she should have made me her priority."
Pros: "No proper meal provided"
Cons: "PROPER comfort zone not provided at all"
Cons: "I didn't like that my original return flight selection was changed one month after confirming. The new flight details which were automatically chosen for me had me coming back home a full day later. This forced me to have to select a new return flight with an 8 hour layover."
Pros: "process quick and efficient"
Cons: "average seats"
Pros: "Best host staff"
Cons: "Bad app don’t trust"
Pros: "FLIGHT ATTENDANTS WERE WONDERFUL"
Cons: "CRYING BABY BUT I UNDERSTAND THOUGH"

Pros: "The Plane was good but not updated with new data"
Cons: "Time delays .. old movies... not a good service with food and beverage... no compensation for the waste of time... restrooms werent clean"
Cons: "For 14 hours flight, we were given 1 meal and 1 snack ; that seems too little for a long flight. They didn't have whiskey, only beer and wine...really... I asked the flight attendant to put my cabin luggage in the space above the seats, because I am old and could not do it myself, and he first frowned and asked why....ridiculous"
Pros: "Once staff were aware that my child was sick one staff member in particular regularly checked on the well being of my child."
Cons: "Crew only helpful when pushed to help. My child was sick and the cabin crew tried to give me food. I said that my child had just vomited but there was no offer to help me clear it up they just continued serving food to other passengers. I had to search for someone to help me to clear up and then I felt as though I was an inconvenience. I then had to look for someone to bring food for myself and other child. My other child is 1yr and 11 months and I was told they were only allowed baby food not a child meal. Although there were a few spare seats on the plane I was squashed into a full row with a 3 yr old and one year old on my lap. I appreciate that there may not have been any bassinet seats left but would have been helpful not to be on a full row as a single adult travelling with two small children. No offers for assistance with bags."
Pros: "The staff are outstanding! Friendly, helpful and accommodating."
Cons: "Poor choice of movies. Their 'world' movies should have subtitles"
Pros: "Excellent service. Good seats. I like the 3x3x3 configuration which make the middle seat bearable."
Cons: "I didn't have much time on my layover, i would've expected the transfer to be better."
Pros: "Flawless boarding, service, food and arrived 30 minutes early."
Pros: "Everyone on duty!!"
Pros: "Paying the hotel for whome the layover was more than 10hrs thanks a lot for caring and preserving the dignity of each customer, I recommend Qatar airlines to everyone"

Cons: "Food - very mediocre and felt like each meal was similar"
Cons: "They gave us a small chicken sandwhich for breakfastand the next meel was over 6 hrs later with a small bag of chips in between. I was actually hungry when we got off our 13 hr flight."
Cons: "Was forced to purchase a return ticket or was not allowed to board the plane. Had to pay 850.00 dollars. In process of requesting a refund."
Pros: "Vegetarian food options"
Cons: "There is nowhere in the airport to go for long layovers. The ticket counter didn't open until closer to the flight, without it I couldn't get inside to the Travelers Lounge, and spent most of my time in the entry area. I also was assigned a middle seat, which is even less fun than usual when you've been in India and your bowels are acting wonky."
Cons: "There were no headphones and again with the remote Oryx screen that is just way too complicated and freezes like crazy."
Cons: "Maybe the food"
Pros: "- Efficient boarding and check-in - on time arrivals"
Cons: "- Food is not as good as in past years. No variety. - -- Attendants don't come around for second beverage (not talking about water distribution) - Planes are showing wear, USB plugs not working"
Pros: "Very friendly crew and efficient check-in service. Food was lovely."
Cons: "Multiple problems with onboard entertainment re-setting itself."
Pros: "I travel from Sydney to Europe (UK and Greece) regularly. My experience with Qatar airways was fantastic: I highly recommend it. First of all, the travelling hours are a bit shorter (compared to travelling via Singapore or Hong Kong) probably because of the geography of the cities/connections and the corresponding flight times between Athens-Doha-Sydney. The aircraft was exceptional (I believe it was Airbus A380). It was a double-deck, wide-body and four-engine jet airliner. Cabin and economy class seats were very comfortable and more spacious compared to other aircraft. There was minimal turbulence, which is partially due to the type of aircraft: at least this is my understanding. The aircraft also had wi-fi (complimentary for the first 15 min) and one was allowed to use the mobile phone during the flight (except during take off and landing times). The flight attendants were absolutely amazing. Also, the crew was very understanding and friendly with children. Food was also excellent and in good portions. Overall there was high tech aircraft, excellent service and no delays. I will choose it again in the future."
Cons: "On the downside, I had a problem with my entertainment device during the whole flight: there was no sound, so I was not really able to watch any movies/TV.. The flight attendants tried to sort it out, but it was not possible. They kindly brought complimentary magazines and drinks/snacks, however it would have been much preferable if I could watch a movie or if free wi-fi was offered for the whole flight, as compensation.. My understanding is that this was not an option, due to problems providing free password..."
Cons: "The seats don't recline very far and on the a380 the window is a very long way from the seat making it impossible to lean against. - so difficult to get a reasonable test. The food was not great. Perhaps not qatar's fault(?) but we bought duty free alcohol in Brussels and took as carry on then after a layover in Doha we were advised Australian regulations prohibited us from taking it on board for the final leg - even though it was still sealed in the duty free bag. We were forced to check it protected only by some lightweight clothing and a thin back pack we had been using as cabin luggage. Fortunately it made it undamaged - but it would be better if we had been informed of this at Brussels."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "It was okay"
Cons: "Best airline!"
Cons: "The crew was good, but the attentiveness of the crew on the second leg was amazing"
Pros: "Excellent crew. Got on just in time. Last one on the flight but they were very understanding. Loved the airbus A380."
Cons: "It was great but food could have been better. Process to get onto the flight at DXB was much longer and complicated than it needed to be. Huge airport and big distance between connecting flights."
Pros: "comfortable seating..."
Cons: "Nice experience ..."
Pros: "The food was nice."
Cons: "Emirates should consider stop selling the seat that is just located next to the laboratory. It’s simoly too close to the facility and I could not get good rest at all not to mention about the strange smell."
Pros: "Everything was amazing, I would say best airlines from Male to Dubai. Crew is super amazing as well."
Pros: "Entertainment system has a great selection, leg space even in economy is big enough."
Cons: "Definitely food, mozarella sandwich was of very poor quality. Also after serving food, it takes them 2 hours to collect trays so you get stuck on your seat and can forget about toilet :("
Pros: "Crew were excellent"
Cons: "The TV was small and poor resolution and brightness. Also no USB power at my seat."
Pros: "Crew was very nice"

Pros: "They did an upgrade to make it business class! It was a very nice surprise! Such great Emirates Airlines! The BEST as always!"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, nice crew, good entertainment selection"
Cons: "The boarding process by bus transfer in Dubai was quite long and convoluted. The food options were limited and overall low quality"
Pros: "Obviously Biz Class is a great proposition for a flight of this length and once again the experience was a good one. Staff are always friendly and very attentive."
Cons: "We are not big eaters but when you leave at 10am then a lunch and breakfast is a bit of a stretch and even with light snack options we found ourselves hungry. Breakfast was not too flash"
Pros: "Comfortable airplane overall."
Cons: "There is no Wifi service during the trip !! And the crew says because it’s short trip there’s no Wifi!!! Not the acceptable excuse , food in business class could be much better"
Pros: "Great video console for a short 1.5 hour flight to Yangon"
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was fantastic. Just a really nice quick flight."

Pros: "We had good seats & crew were friendly, but not as good as the Sydney to Dubai crew"
Cons: "The lateness of our departure with no reason given from Dubai."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic"

Cons: "The crew were so friendly"
Pros: "Emirates advertised for $66 RT tickets from Mali to NYC which I purchased, only to find out by email that two days later that they weren't going to honor my tickets. Hence didn't end up taking the trip."
Cons: "Emirates advertised for $66 RT tickets from Mali to NYC which I purchased, only to find out by email that two days later that they weren't going to honor my tickets. Hence didn't end up taking the trip."

Pros: "Emirates gets credit for reasonable legroom in economy class and excellent entertainment choices."
Cons: "Airbus A380 is a huge airplane. So many passengers creates limitations."
Cons: "I didn't like my seat placement this time round. Was put in the seat infront of business class as no other option. Really uncomfortable."
Pros: "The entertainment systems is good a lot of choices."
Cons: "The toilet are so dirty, nobody cleaning them for the entire trip that's more than 15hours, unacceptable for the price they charged."
Pros: "I like the crew they were so accommodative"
Cons: "No comments"
Pros: "Onboard crew- Bliss was the name of the crew member on board. Efficient and a joyful personality to engage. He connected , talked and responded warmly and efficiently."
Cons: "Checking in at the airport- the staff person who I dealt with was combative and inflexible. I had to ask the manager to mediate till the matter was resolved. As frequent travelers, I am aware rules change and am willing to comply. Being told my hand baggage had to be checked in and I cannot redistribute the weight or put things into my checking bags that were yet to be tagged was unreasonable. Started my trip on a negative note which was avoidable. I have found the training crew get and the ground staff get are disparate. As efficient as the onboard crew are, the ground staff in DXB and now NYC do not match up."
Pros: "Overall ok"
Cons: "Food options for AVML or VML pretty sad for options , taste and service too. even after ordering AVML all across the cabin crew was going thru major issues with finding the food for me for AVML food got served after they served everyone on the flight. lot of effort made by the crew but cant blame them for it. Indian food / Vegetarian meal / Asian vegetarian Meal options are varied and can be filtered to basic but classic food options that can make not just me but there are lot of people like me have a good experience with food. even the fruit platter ordered was not appealing."
Cons: "I did not get the seats I selected when booking"
Pros: "Food was really good and they accommodated my gluten free diet with ease. Great movies and tv shows to watch!"

Pros: "As comfortable as can be expected in economy class... more comfortable than other carriers to be sure. Service from the flight crewy was excellent. The food actually quite good."
Cons: "Boarding process is the one area that could be improved."
Pros: "Roomy and good service"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Crew was nice they're helpful flight was on time. I like it when things go smooth at the airports."
Cons: "Not enough leg room or people's were bumping as they by. Needs elbow room."
Pros: "Quick online check-in and bag drop-off at the airport. Friendly cabin crew. Juices etc. offered in between meal/snacks"
Cons: "Delayed take-off from Singapore once we had boarded-an hour just waiting to taxi. Delayed landing at Dubai due to volume of air traffic. This meant a very quick transfer to the London flight and no helpful assistance from cabin crew even though I asked for assistance, I had to hail a buggy down at the airport otherwise we would not have made it to our flight as I would not have been able to walk that far in the time available. If the flight had landed on time then there would not have been a problem."
Pros: "Wide selection of movies, TV shows and other entertainment. Food was decent. Crew was attentive enough."
Cons: "They did not have special meals that I ordered but the crew tried their best to make it up. But they had the same collection of movies both ways. My return flight was a month later. Entertainment set of was pretty good on their Boeing 777-300Er flight, but average on the A380-800. The 16 hour flight will not be pleasant for most. Why the toilets are so compact? I would pay extra for bit more room. This is a problem with all airlines. They allowed me to take a laptop and a hand baggage in LAX but forced me to check in the hand bag in Dubai. They pick random passengers for this. Irritating."
Pros: "Crew is attentive and helpful. Seats are comfortable in economy class. Bathrooms are well equipped and generally speaking clean. Meals are good quality."
Cons: "I would change the snack in the flight Milan to JFK. instead of the pizza pesto, I would offer fruit options or regular breakfast food although it is a snack."
Pros: "I was expecting something similar to last year. Unfortunately, my screen did not work and when I switched seats the seat would not recline properly. On the flight back from DXB-MCO they ran out of lamb only had chicken."
Cons: "Please see above"
Cons: "No one weighted my cabin bag while checking in. Before the security control, Emirates ground staff stopped me and weighted my cabin bag that was 8.4, around a kg extra. They didn't allow me boarding until I threw 4 shirts to the garbage and I reduced the weight. Staff was just unbelievably rude."
Pros: "Great experience"
Pros: "The crew were courteous on the return flight, accommodating . They took too long to retrieve trash after food and drink services. The chairs recline too far back limiting the leg room, moreso knee room of the parties sitting behind the reclined chairs"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Best airline. Comfortable seats"
Pros: "Slept well with minimal disturbances form the air hostess."
Cons: "Cannot specify dietary restrictions while checking as it was not enabled"

Pros: "On time, early."
Cons: "Comfort. Too tight Food. Mediocre in economy"
Pros: "Legroom, seat amenities, boarding process"
Cons: "The crew could have been a bit more attentive, especially when clearing the service. I had an armrest dining tray which was very small and snug (same for the seatbelt as well) and it was hard to move with the tray still there. Also, Iwith fruit platter for meal, they served a side of fruit!"
Pros: "Food was slightly better than the previous flight."
Cons: "Same lousy headphones. My seat had a led rest that made it harder to get in and out, and wasnt usable due to the close distance to the seat in front. What was the designer thinking? I missed the drink service if there was one, never saw water going around until right at the end. . ."
Cons: "This was my first time travelling with China airlines and this trip was our honeymoon so we were really excited for this trip but after flying with China Air, I dont think I will fly with them again. Flight attendants were really rude, Food was ok, There’s no selection of drinks"
Pros: "Fast and efficient boarding process. Nice selection of movies."
Cons: "Seats (economy) can always be more comfortable."
Cons: "Some of the courses in the dinner were excellent like the soup and appetizer. Other items were off, like the entree. Wine selection could improve."

Cons: "It would be better if it was on time"

Cons: "They movies on demand kept skipping in voice....but love the selection of movies"
Pros: "The airline has some of the nicest staff onboard"

Pros: "Great flight, plane &crew"
Cons: "Nothing was bad"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and attentive. Wide range of entertainment to choose from."

Cons: "The plane was new and clean very nice"
Pros: "Easy flight from TPE to SIN. The plane was clean and the crew were attentive and pleasant."

Cons: "Boarding left on time, but there were staff members frustrated and yelling at passengers to get on the plane. Normally I am not a picky eater, but I could not eat the food on the flight. It tasted like dog food"
Pros: "The food was good the crew were very nice and polite"
Cons: "The seating was a bit cramped. Because I have long legs there wasn't a lot of room between rows.

The screen was small and not very clear to watch."

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 chicken and rice dish was tasty. I also appreciated the fresh fruit."
Cons: "Airline somehow cancelled our spot on the flight without us knowing, only found out when we were doing the checkin at the airport. What followed was an hour and half of international phone calls to try to sort this mess out. Ended up with us having to go to an airport an hour away to catch another flight so we don't miss our trip. Terrible terrible experience and stressful."

Pros: "Efficient, affordable"
Cons: "Food not the best but it's okay"

Cons: "Nothing was bad. Great flight/plane and crew."
Cons: "No entertainment for kids, no toes, TVs were not functioning and several times I asked the crew that kids bored and want to play or have something to watch but nobody cared. My children didn't liked the food at all, as there was no fish or egg or veg meals, only pork at breakfast. I had two young kids with me, but were treated as regular passengers and we lined up for long time for boarding and kids got very tired. At washrooms there was no soap, tissue or towel papers."

There were a quite a few passengers booked on the connecting flight but Qantas made no attempt to get us on board it and instead re-booked us for the next flight which was scheduled for 2.5 hours later but, in fact, left nearly 3.5 hours later.

Pros: "The staff did the best they could to accommodate everyone on a full flight in economy. The passenger in front of me had a failed entertainment system and the staff handled it very well."

Cons: "My name is Parag Mokashi, Indian Passport No. Z1788332 had booked 2 return air tickets from Singapore to Auckland with details as follows: Qantas Airways Flight QF6 - Depart Singapore Changi Apt, SG (SIN) 01Dec16 (Thu) 23:50 Arrive Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 02Dec16 (Fri) 10:50 Flight QF145 - Depart Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 02Dec16 (Fri) 11:55 Arrive Auckland International Apt, NZ (AKL) 02Dec16 (Fri) 17:10 Flight QF144 - Depart Auckland International Apt, NZ (AKL) 13Dec16 (Tue) 08:35 Arrive Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 13Dec16 (Tue) 10:15 Flight QF81 - Depart Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 13Dec16 (Tue) 11:15 Arrive Singapore Changi Apt, SG (SIN) 13Dec16 (Tue) 16:30 I had booked these tickets online through CheapTickets.sg on 17th September 2016. While booking the tickets mine and my wife’s full details such as the Name, Nationality and Passport were given. In spite of this nowhere was it mentioned in the Quantas terms and conditions or any prompt/popup given while booking the tickets that Australian transit visa is required for Indians since the flight is via Australian city. I had booked the tickets well in advance and had enough time to get transit visa had there been any information about it mentioned. On 1st December 2016 when we went to the Changi airport we were not allowed to board the plane as we did not have the Australian transit visa. We were told by Quantas personnel at the airport to go to the Australian embassy in Singapore to get the transit visa and that we would get it within a day. Next day we went to the embassy and found that the Australian visa is done by VFS global at a different address. When went there they informed us that Australian visa takes minimum 5 days. I had all my hotel bookings in New Zealand already done hence I had no choice to take a direct Singapore Auckland flight via Singapore Airlines at a very high price on the next day. I also lost one day of my hotel booking in Auckland and had to forfeit the money. I and my wife had to go through the psychological trauma of being refused to board the plane, then the next day running around the Australian embassy / VFS global office for trying to get the Australian transit visa and facing the uncertainty regarding our new Zealand trip which was planned well in advance for our 25th wedding anniversary"
