Top 5 airlines serving Melbourne to Bangkok Suvarnabhumi
Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Rather long wait at business check-in, friendliness there ok, on board service slow with the champagne, old aircraft with old configuration of seats, nothing really bad, but it's not like this that you win an airline of the year award!"
Pros: "The crew was very polite and very helpful. Boarding process was smooth and easy, however, the Singapore airport has security checks at every gate prior to boarding. This meant that after clearing this security process at the gate, bathrooms were not available until after boarding the flight and drinking water stations were not easily found in the secure boarding area. The aircraft was comfortable, menus were distributed early so that meal options could be made with full information in advance. The food was good and made available at routine intervals."
Cons: "On a 14 hour flight, staying well hydrated is very critical and difficult. It would have been nice for the crew to make more frequent trips through the cabin to offer just water refills to keep passengers hydrated and reduce plastic cup usage."
Pros: "What can I Say. It's Singapore Airlines"
Pros: "I liked that on the longest leg of my trip - I had an entire row to myself to stretch out. Im old, things like that are important...along with compression socks...haha!"

Pros: "I didn't like the trip much. After the trip we found out that our body was bitten by fleas. Our body is now full of rashes, every part of my body is so itchy. We was seated in 61A and 61C, seems like in the previous flight a dog was sitting there or some kind of animal that left fleas in the sit."
Cons: "Please clean better the seats. This is unacceptable, not a good way to start a trip in Japan. We only hope to get better sitting in our last flight with SQ, from Japan to LA."

Pros: "One of the best flights I’ve been on. The seats are spacious and the crew are very friendly"
Cons: "Reclining seats tend to make me caustaphonic with the limited space"
Cons: "The seat's recline button was broken which meant having to sit for 12+ hours upright. Upon hearing that the seat was broken, the airline crew offered my mother a check for 100 SGD (14% of the ticket value) to be used on Singapore airlines (for the discomfort caused for over 50% of the flight time). They changed her seat from Seoul to Singapore. When I wrote to them about it, they came back saying they had offered her a seat change from LA to Singapore, and she had declined, which is absolutely false. When I called that out, they said, maybe they did not offer aisle seats (note that the broken seat was not aisle). So it just shows that they don't want to accept that they messed up. They even told me that despite their best efforts in pre-flight checks, certain defects only surface when the flight is in progress. Will never ever travel on this airline again."

Cons: "Unable to listen to movies with their headphones - too much static"
Pros: "None....RBA shld give everyone a free voucher. Flight is supposed to arrive at 23:30. We landed 02:15. And they let people starved serving the snacks an hour late as promised. Then passengers were moved from one gate to another. It was inhumane and no explanations at all about the delay."

Cons: "A 320 necessarily lowers the quality compared with dreamliner eg access to toilets and aisle width and entertainment system at manila the`woman at checkout spoke very poor english so had to repeat several times... and she expressed doubt about any seat vacant as`i was late in the queue.. she resolved this by passing me to her supervisor no other problems"

Screens not best eg Cathay and Qatar. Women cabin crew good to dress islamic but too restrictive. No t easy th o hear captain messages. Seat design only average. Bandar airport ver y beautiful but need better restaurant."

Pros: "Dreamliner appears to have more room, the seats recline to a greater angle, and it is not cold like a lot of other planes. Cabin crew were friendly, helpful and attentive. The break up of flight legs between Australia and U.K. into 3 legs of 7 or 8 hrs is a great alternative to the 1x9hr & 1x12hr."
Cons: "The entertainment system functionality is great, but choice was a bit poor, although numerous. Food generally quite good, only one meal I was disappointed with."
Cons: "The flight delayed for 5 hours and then cancelled. While I understand this happens, it was completely unorganized. They didn't have any plans to try to get people on other flights (passengers ended up organizing this), they provided a hotel but we had to sit there for over an hour while they tried to find one, and when trying to get flights gets the next day, staff was not proactive...the only way people got rebooked was if they told them what to do."
Pros: "The cabin crew were very friendly, organised and polite."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 20min from the outset as the pilot explained to all onboard that we weren't allowed to land early at Dubai airport. Towards the end of the flight the plane was delayed for over another hour as we circled the gulf waiting to land.

Excellent wide screen entertainment system, not like the majority of aircraft with undersized and poor screen quality."
Pros: "Everything but mostly the leg room. Not sure if it's due to the airline type (Dream-liner) or just the seating arrangement but makes for a very comfortable long haul flight. Excellent wide screen entertainment system, not like the majority of aircraft with undersized and poor screen quality. And unlike previous comments, actually enjoyed the fact I had to disembark at Dubai on flight from Brunei to London allowing us all a chance to stretch our legs, go to the toilet and get a good cup of coffee."

Pros: "Good entertainment choices. Preferred check thru TSA. No one seating next to me."
Cons: "I don't think I will use Kayak again. You farmed out my booking to Voyama which spelled my name wrong.

Pros: "I am frequent air traveler that logs about 100k miles a year and this is the first time I felt like writing a review about an airline. I traveled with my 4 year old son on this trip. Excellent service, high quality food options and flight amenities. I really enjoyed the food as did my son. My son left his backpack behind on the first leg and the airline staff retreived it and delivered it to the lounge in less than 15 minutes. I was astounded and had almost given up on seeing the bag again, given my experience with other airlines in the past. This is going to be airline of choice for future trips!"
Cons: "Continues to be incinsistent and spotty service."
Pros: "Service and staff. Food was better than most and they weren't stingy with the wine."
Cons: "Plane seemed tired. The usb charger didn't work and the reading lights were impossible to use without putting glare into other passengers eyes.

Selection of in flight entertainment was limited and sound quality was poor."

Cons: "30 passengers on a 60 seat plane. We should have been spaced out due to the Coronavirus, but NO. We reallocated seats which had us all jammed up the front and back with rows of empty seats in between. Not good enough Qantas! I asked to change and the cery pleasant hostess said no we were NOT allowed. I do NOT understand this."

Cons: "Several of the food items were either cold or overdone. I asked hostess what the deal was (because their food service is usually great) and she explained that in this new plane (Boeing 787) they removed a lot of the working areas for the crew. They have less space to work in order to be able to prepare food and drinks compared to Qantas's other planes (Airbus A380). This is also a brand new plane for this crew (literally the first flight for some for some of them), and they didn't know where some of the things on the plane were. I imagine after they've used the plane for a while and learn where everything is, they'll get better. I'll find out on the return flight back to Melbourne."
Pros: "Fantastic cabin crew and fantastic maître’d in the first class lounge at Melb International airport. Honestly the best service we have ever received from start to finish from Qantas. Thank youalso the vegetarian and vegan meals were great unlike previous years. Thanks again"

Pros: "even though i am Qantas life time gold, my silver emirates membership would not get me itto Qantas line in Melbourne. i had to change the flight attribution to Qantas"
Cons: "went i couldn't use my Qantas membership to access Melbourne lounge"
Pros: "Liked service and entertainment"
Cons: "Lack of legroom"
Pros: "Looking out the window."
Cons: "Flight changed from an A330 to a B737 perhaps as Resukt if the public holiday"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Food was mushy Boarding notice was short The price of the flight"
Pros: "prompt checkin, boarding, baggage came out fast"
Cons: "no drinks service prior to meal, seats squashy, don't eat the stir fried noodles they are tragic, entertainment system didn't work properly - again."
Cons: "- delayed flight because of delayed crew - They've had many crew injuries helping customers moving overhead luggage, so they asked customers to sort their own luggage out. Hey, how about teaching OH&S to staff and employing staff that can perform their duties?"
Pros: "The crew is always nice and approachable. The entertainment is usually high but this time around there weren't many good choices."
Cons: "The food is AWFUL, and has been getting worse as the years go on. Absolutely terrible taste, stomach-churning smells and gross consistency. During boarding I was profiled by one of your gate agents and "selected for further screening" ... not fun. No explanations, just surly, inattentive agents performing further checks on items that had already been twice-checked at security. Awful service."
Pros: "Case was off quickly"
Cons: "No choice in seating"
Cons: "Seats too closely squashed together Screen faulty towards end of flight Tried unsuccessfully to check in online - did not get an aisle seat which I specifically requested all along"
Pros: "I loved the first meal and the choices all seemed amazing. Staff were friendly during boarding. Seats were really comfortable and good movie and song choices."
Cons: "The second meal, a small noodle box was dry, overcooked, and bland even with the dressing. The crew was not very friendly during the flight (I understand maybe they had a cranky passenger before and it was a long flight but smiling isnt that hard!). Inflight service was inconsistent as one side came down to serve 15minutes after the first side. The headphones looked quite dirty so I used my own. Boarding was quite slow and then takeoff was late but it was nice that the captain explained it."
Pros: "Comfortable plane. Good entertainment. Very nice chicken salad. Friendly staff."
Cons: "The soggy pies were a bit, well, soggy ... The changeover at Dubai seemed unnecessary. Having to go through security tho get from airside to airside was a bit daft. The crew gave little information on how that changeover was going to happen, and when they did it was just before landing."
Pros: "In flight entertainment had a good selection"
Cons: "Delayed and missed connecting flight. As a result had to pay for a new one. Placed in the last row of economy so I could sit with my partner. Lied to by the check in counter. Disappointed by qantas yet again!"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Nothing that is unique to Qantas or just flying in general."
Cons: "Great service , very caring and clean . Looked after me as I had to use a wheelchair . Thank you :)"
Pros: "The interior of the seats a very nice. QANTAS blankets and cushions are comfortable. I also like the little drop down net under the seat for you feet to rest in. The QANTAS flight staff are great. I also like that they don't go down the aisle with trolleys a lot (just for the meals) and that they just come around with jug and cup for drinks."
Pros: "A cut above all others"
Pros: "Qantas has really upped it's service in the last couple of years, their crew on this flight were very professional."
Pros: "The no fuss but highly professional approach of the cabin crew. The level of comfort in the cabin, with a business class upgrade."
Cons: "I dont like having to track the distance through the outside lounge in both directions to get to the Business Lounge. The Business Lounge is frequently busy and noisy. Very hard to conduct a phone conversation from."
Pros: "Crew very friendly"
Cons: "Departure 50mins late, arrival 10mins late then wait 45mins for bags to arrive ... not good enough"
Pros: "Staff were wonderful"
Cons: "The only thing I found was the seat where I sat was a bit noisy. I had to have the sound on my movie turnd up loud to drown out emgine noise."
Cons: ". I was shocked to see social distancing was not implemented with no seats apart and I was in the middle of four seats. If the journey is as important as the destination, then it already failed the minute I was seated in a very intimate setting alongside strangers and seeing the economy class fully booked. The airline defended this by saying they have special economy seats but I complained that this is not equitable since the seats are limited and not everyone could afford an upgrade. Even if they could, the passengers would still be seated side by side and the total number of passengers aboard a tight and enclosed space or load factor is still very high. The airline’s policy was so inconsistent with the very rigid rules of the different government agencies upon disembarkation."
Pros: "The plane was on time ,all good"
Cons: "A little more leg room... but all in all. Not to bad"
Cons: "I couldn’t recline my seat. Something should be done."
Cons: "The transfer in Manila was like nowhere else. After the security check we were sent outside where buses were driving to claim our checked-in luggage to take it for another check just to drop it one minute later. Anywhere in the world if you board a flight with a stop-over you see your luggage at the final destination, not the case if you fly trough Manila."
Pros: "service and food"
Cons: "Would be better if flight arrived on time & we didn't have to wait for 30 minutes on the plane waiting for a terminal to be available"
Pros: "The crew was extra friendly. The seat was spacious. Good leg room."
Cons: "Main meal , too much rice for a westerner. Quality could improve a bit. Bread roll was below average."
Cons: "Late with no explanation and no communication just late to load. Late to depart. Late late late"
Pros: "you ripped me off"
Cons: "you ripped me off"
Pros: "You ripped me off"
Cons: "you ripped me off"
Pros: "I liked that it was comfortable and they had good movies."
Cons: "The food can be a little better"
Cons: "Forget trying to get through Manila airport. The transfer process is worst in the world. Terminal 1 to 2 takes 2 hrs min."
Cons: "E mail up dates of change of gates or times."
Pros: "Yes, they were nice and approachable at all time. The seat was fine, I slept most of the time"
Cons: "The new boarding gate could have been made clearer. But it was a great flight. Great entertainment. 144 movies to choose from. Great."
Pros: "It was a very good flight and on time. The food was very authentic and tasty!"
Cons: "The airport need to expand the number of runways. Always late leaving or arriving because they can't handle the traffic and especially in bad weather."
Pros: "Crew are very helpful."
Cons: "Need reclining seats"
Pros: "Flight was on time. No stop over, because it is a direct flight."
Cons: "The choice on the menu is not available, the bread was not given to us, because they run out, no apple juice because it run out too. Drinking water served, it is warm.They should offer some ice cubes or ask the passengers if they want ice... Other airlines, serves different juices through out the flight. Crew not communicating at all. Doesn't say anything or serve you with a smile."
Cons: "Check in at NAIA very slow with little information available, could not check in online 3 flights were boarding, same gate same 1 hour time period, confusing when Bangkok flight was boarding, boarding was also stopped due to a flight arrival Child in seat behind kicking/shaking my seat - no help"

Cons: "A bit messy for the boarding but partly as unruly passengers"
Pros: "onboard service was good"
Cons: "17 hour delay"
Pros: "Nice seats in business, good food, nice crew."
Cons: "Door closed ten minutes ahead of schedule yet had to wait on stand nearly half an hour to push back due to airport congestion. Arrived in HKG late at a remote stand and had to use stairs and be bussed to the terminal. I missed the last HKIA Express train to HK"
Pros: "Aircraft spacious seats comfortable Crew very friendly and welcoming good movie selection"
Cons: "Cues at T2 massive to go through immigration zig zag around terminal Seats don’t adjust well and little leg room when flat. Food uninspiring. Tv fixed lots of reflections. Toilets small."
Pros: "Asked for window seat, said only have one at back of the plane, I said that’s fine, ended up with three seats to myself so got some sleep on an overnight flight. Gotta be happy with that,"
Cons: "Cabin crew had a tendency of not seeing me so I had to get their attention for the hand outs, no biggie"
Pros: "The plane was on time"
Cons: "The lounge is awful."
Pros: "Birding was great. Punctual flight."
Cons: "My entertainment screen broke. It took the crew 7 hours to replace it. A crew member said they would sort it, bit nothing for 6.5 hours There appeared be confusing within the crew members about what food I ordered."
Pros: "Crew were polite and helpful Aircraft ? Great Bad. Awesome awful. All of those. I really was to say nice things as it’s just basics that were bad"
Cons: "Business lounge ? Ummm totally unacceptable. It’s a PAYG uncomfortable Un stocked unstaffed waste. Food Was extremely basic. If economy fine but business!!! Very poor"
Pros: "On time, very good service, good food & wine and very comfortable. Plenty of space around the business class seat and easy access to and from seat. Large screen tv."
Cons: "Slightly limited entertainment . Mabuhay lounge at Manila's average."
Pros: "Again lovely food and crew. Same good seats as the A350 from LHR."
Cons: "Boarded and ready on time but 1hr delay for ATC reasons . The A330's a bit short of toilets requiring a 'queueing system' at busy times. Probably not the actual airline's fault but the ground handlers at AKL took an hour to produce my bags meaning me missing a connecting internal flight."
Pros: "Flight was relatively smooth. Take-off and landing likewise."
Cons: "The barbecue chicken supposedly from Aristocrat was served with hardly any sauce so it was dry and needless to say, disappointing..I just ate it just to fill up my stomach. I was looking for the music selections in the inflight magazine to help me choose the station but didn't see anything listed. The aisle of the Airbus 320 is quite narrow so it is difficult to pass the aisle w/out bumping into seats."
Cons: "Seemed very crammed seat-wise. There was was no entertainment system system so one star is stretching it."
Pros: "Food was mostly very nice."
Cons: "The Manila transfer process was a waste of time. Why when only transferring through at the airport you must go to an insecure area to get a Manila stamp in your passport and then have to go back into the secure area via another security check."
Pros: "Clean toilets."
Cons: "The flight was terrible. The boarding process was improperly conducted causing a lack of overhead space in the baggage storage overhead. The entertainment system was broken and the flight transfer process was terrible and confusing. I had the worst trip in over 300 life time trips. I felt like the price was way too high for the service I received! I need a partial refund at a minimun. This flight was terrible for my 3 children and I."
Pros: "The crew were pleasant."
Cons: "The flight was terrible. The boarding process was improperly conducted causing a lack of overhead space in the baggage storage overhead. The entertainment system was broken and the flight transfer process was terrible and confusing. I had the worst trip in over 300 life time trips. I felt like the price was way too high for the service I received! I need a partial refund at a minimun."
Cons: "Flight delays several hours. Its a very terrible flight. No apology from airlines company too."
Pros: "Flight took off early landed early"
Cons: "The seats obviously and the nead trolley dolly was quite rude she spoke about me to another passenger like i wasnt tgere"
Cons: "Flight crews working at transfer desks were extremely unorganized and brought us to our terminal at the very last minute when the flight was calling for all passengers to board. Food was terrible. Ended up losing my baggage because they didn’t have enough time to put all the bags onto the flight and so I had to wait an extra two hours at the airport"
Pros: "Great experuance. Caring staff"
Cons: "Landing lan"
Pros: "Excellent crew, very attentive and polite. New/newly refurbished plane and very clean."
Cons: "I thought I read somewhere that Premium Economy had their own toilets but that didn't seem to be the case. The Mabuhay Lounge (for those with access) is in need of a renovation and can be hard to find seats."
Pros: "Crew were pleasant and attentive and found was simple but OK, with a choice."
Cons: "Legroom appalling. For anyone 6ft Plus it was a struggle and uncomfortable for the 3hr flight. Holding for 25 minutes after landing until parking spot became available didn’t help."
Pros: "American carriers should take note and work to improve passenger comfort and experience."
Cons: "A better entertainment system would be nice."
