Pros: "Again friendly and efficient staff and a smooth flight. Best features of Singapore Airlines."
Cons: "The business class seats were smaller than I thought and not so comfortable as the 777. The seats are hard and ungiving and when you sleep on them you really feel it. Plus the flatbed lay out meant you were basically lying in a question mark position, not so goof for tall people like my husband. The food was good but uninteresting and I think for an overnight flight there should be more smaller,lighter, non spicy options offered rather that full dinners."
Pros: "Friendly efficient staff. plane 777 business class seat comfortable, and flat bed, once you figured out how to operate it was also comfortable. Food was good but not excellent compared to previous flights."
Cons: "Singapore Airlines business class lounge in Melbourne was less than impressive and the food was atrocious. Lounge in Singapore was large but still overcrowded. Amenities much better and the food was plentiful and interesting."

Cons: "No air vents and the cabin was very very stuffy and warm for many people. I’ve never heard one child cry for 7+ hours before until this flight. But everything else was decent to say the very least:)"

Cons: "My screen had to be reset twice as it froze up. The attendants kept taking my water cups despite them not being empty. Boarding was less than organized, could have been more efficient. We made up time, arriving a few minutes early even after departing late."
Pros: "Spacious and comfortable bed."
Cons: "The food wasn't that great. Average at best."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, derive very ordinary staff unhelpful seat allocation system requires improving ! Extra cost from economy was not worth it !"

Pros: "Flight crew great"
Pros: "Flight crew, food, boarding and entertainment great."
Cons: "Just didn't like the 7 hour delay for the flight. Nobody's fault."
Pros: "The trip was uneventful, with the usual excellent service."
Pros: "Everything SIA stood for, we experienced it, despite the unfortunate delay which the ground crew couldn't have done much about."
Cons: "Unfortunate delay caused by technical issues. I'm just glad we found it on the ground, instead of in the air. But the delay was REALLY long."
Cons: "The plane was freezing - absolutely freezing. Too cold. There were not enough fluids given out. Given we could not even take water brought in the airport into the plane there needed to be regular distributions of fluids on the flight as there was on the flight from London toy Singapore. It is a long flight and being dehydrated on a plane is not a good thing."
Cons: "Cabin temperature was really hot."
Cons: "Old plane. Worst food I’ve ever had on a Singapore airlines flight. They need to give up on the seafood spaghetti. It was quite awful. Old plane so entertainment system not up to what is expected these days"
Pros: "Great service and comfort."
Cons: "Food was bland and breakfast availability was a joke. On any flight, passengers do not want spicy or evening meals, and having a limited amount number of breakfasts available was not amusing. The crew had done 5 rows and we were 6 row from kitchen and they had run out ."
Pros: "Boarding, friendly crew"
Cons: "Very slow service, took 2 hours. Entertainment system didn't worked for first half of flight."
Pros: "I liked the space I had to stretch out, 3 seats to myself in economy enabled me to get some solid sleep between meals. The crew werebalways very polite and friendly."
Pros: "Service was great especially the food"
Pros: "Amazing, amazing service! Great food (including Hagen Daaz ice cream) and good choice of beverages. Lots of different entertainment choices. VERY clean and well maintained aircraft. Staff is always friendly and happy...they really seem to absolutely love their job! Free toiletries in the bathrooms are an extra plus. Whenever there was a change in schedule / plans the captain informed the passengers immediately about what was going on and what would happen next."
Cons: "The only thing that did and probably always will be AWFUL is going thru security at JFK. The T S A officials there are unfriendly, sometimes rude, never smiling and often yelling at you or even little kids or elderly people. We are travelling a lot and no other security staff at any given airport is so unfriendly and harsh. Worst thing about going on a journey."
Cons: "My flight got canceled but nobody responded from flyus.com"
Pros: "The seating was very uncomfortable and cramped I"
Cons: "I’m really not sure. The seat felt like I was sitting on a rock and I had a lot of trouble moving so as not to disturb the person seated next to me."
Pros: "Excellent crew and great food."
Pros: "attentive crews, clean toilets"
Cons: "waited for 2 hours upon immigration clearance, not sure what was the issue. ground handling only updated there was a delay. baggage didn't get loaded onto carousel until 2 hours after landing. horrible"

Cons: "Every thing is good"
Cons: "Qatar airport duplicTe security check"
Pros: "The seat was ok and the food was good."
Cons: "Though the staff was friendly, I found them a bit unhelpful. I was literally holding three bags and a toddler in my arms, and passed at least three airline crew members. However, not one of them even bothered offering for help. I don’t expect that from a world class airline."
Pros: "Friendly crew (didn’t go above or beyond but polite and accommodated to simple requests). Plenty of meals/snacks and drinks offered."
Cons: "The seats barely recline backward which really meant I was basically upright trying to sleep for 14 hours on one leg and 6 hours on the next. My luggage was lost, despite being promised it would be delivered that day I had to wait 24 hours."
Pros: "Great staff, great comfort. Great airline!"
Cons: "The boarding system is somewhat confusing with 5 different zonings."
Cons: "19 hours layover and Qatar airlines doesn’t want to accommodate a hotel room after charging Me almost $1500 for a flight. This is a horrible service Qatar airlines."
Pros: "The Crew were excellent, friendly, professional and attentative."
Cons: "We checked in seven and a half hours before this flight as we had just flown from Melbourne Australia to Qatar landing that same day at 0435am in the morning with this flight being delayed from 805 am to 12 noon then to find that we had been allocated the last row right at the toilets. Horrible."
Pros: "the new seating in Business Class is very comfortable and so similar, although slightly less spacious, than First on some carriers. Crew is top class. Doha is a great airport too. I prefer it to Dubai."
Pros: "The Crew was amazing, the Seat a bit better this Time only 3row of 3 Seat"
Pros: "Regular A330 was substituted for a 787 dreamliner."
Pros: "Staff were fantastic."

Cons: "Main courses weren’t all the great."
Pros: "Not-so-full flight meant we could move about and choose more comfortable seats."
Cons: "TV unit didn’t work, lucky me. They tried two times to restart and reboot but to no avail. The attendant said my choices were to not watch or move to an empty seat. I chose to sit next to my wife."
Pros: "The airplane and clean"
Cons: "The seats destination between them very small"
Pros: "Everything ,good service ,friendly crew affordable rates"
Pros: "We received friendly attitudes with lots of soft drinks. Upstairs in the airbus was good as my seat was near the emergency door, where I had room for my long legs. I was given aisle seats on both return flights so I could move about more. The meals were lovely. The airbus was good for peace & quiet from crying children."
Cons: "I had left an expensive style of neck/travel pillow i left in my Perth rental car but wasn’t supported to pick it up. I had to arrange for the car rental firm to post it. We had over 3/4 hr to fly. We were boarding. It’s a shame there wasn’t a quick way of getting my pillow to me without customs bureaucracy. It was a simple mistake. A toilet was blocked and temporarily unavailable. Some passengers were taking a long time and queues were building at different times."
Cons: "Unable to reserve any seats so ended up with the family split all over the plane"
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "No tv monitors or any entertainment"
Cons: "see my words above. it is bad tryout with your site. there no responsibility. i am very upset about your negligence of your clients."

Pros: "The service was excellent & food satisfying."
Cons: "The liquor variety could be better."
Pros: "Fabulous service from start to finish Excellent cabin, spacious & impeccably clean Super choice of food and drinks We travelled in the business cabin which I have to say, rivals many so-called 'First Class' products. The crew were courteous, addressing us by name and nothing was too much trouble."
Cons: "Boarding at Bali Airport is chaotic. This can hardly be attributed to Qatar Airways but this needs to be sorted out. When boarding began, it started with "Group 1" rather than business and other priority customers. It ended up rather chaotic with boarding halted at the end of the escalator causing a very uncomfortable situation as people struggled to get off the escalator."
Pros: "Fabulous crew, good choice of food and drinks and served whenever you want it. Good array of entertainment on offer but our flight was a 'sleeper' so after a fumble with the controls and the limited new releases, I opted to read instead. Seats are comfy and spacious, much wider than Emirates in the same class (who offer only an extra 1/2 inch width over economy). Amenity kit a quality piece that is both practical and useful."
Cons: "Crew seemed to have stopped referring to the passengers by name and offer a less-personalised service in Business than we have become accustomed to. The food choices while good, have been paired back as have the selection of wines."
Cons: "Snacks and drinks could be betteri"
Cons: "Too long, lol"
Pros: "all are nice"
Cons: "nothing but avoid bread"
Pros: "Very polite and friendly crew. Very helpful."
Cons: "Did not have the duty free item I wanted in stock"
Pros: "Polite crew, food was pretty good."
Cons: "Did not have the duty free item I pre-ordered. I asked the crew 4 times about it, four times because they said that they would check but they never got back to me to tell me that it was out of stock; until I pressed the issue."
Cons: "too hot called groups too fast for boarding"
Pros: "Food was good, staff was excellent."
Cons: "Can't think of anything."
Pros: "Very impressed with the service. Very friendly staff"

Pros: "Went out of their way to be helpful"
Pros: "Nothing about American Airlines Never ever to travel with it again"
Cons: "Passengers service bad Air hostesses just rude I Don’t even know why someone wants to work When they can’t even smile There were few seats were empty but they were offered to fellow passengers who happens to be different colors Person Then me America airline lost my family business for ever"
Pros: "crew was lovely and plane was very new"
Cons: "food quality is not very good: sometimes it was hard to see what it actually was and it tasted like that too. headrest in the new plane is not comfortable at all as it is rigid and can only be moved up and down."
Pros: "Friendly and genuine staff. Clean plane. Staff were well organised."
Cons: "Headphones didn’t fit my head and began to hurt my ears. Media cut out a lot."
Pros: "I haven't flown with Qatar for several years, but my memories of an exceptional experience were replicated. Fantastic modern aircraft, brilliant crew and great food."
Cons: "Only one minor gripe, the passengers seated behind me talked incessantly, making my attempts to sleep impossible. I asked if there were any ear plugs available, but none could be found. My own fault, I should have packed my own."
Pros: "The airplane seats in economy were comfortable for the very long flights I took with Qatar Airlines. The seats had enough room between the back of the other seat. The seat reclined to a comfortable position. The seat back provided a built in head rest. The TV's in the seats were the largest I have ever seen on a flight in economy. The staff were helpful and great. The food and drinks provided were decent!"
Pros: "Very affordable flights, good value for money. Most of the journey from Sydney to Oslo (via Doha) went qiluite smoothly)."
Cons: "The only thing I didn’t like about the experience was the fact that you can only check in one piece of luggage on economy class, and one very sour individual at the gate when boarding."
Cons: "why did they take my blanket and headphones 1 hour before we land?"
Pros: "Crew is professional, caring. Excellent experience"
Cons: "Just because I have bought my ticket on points I was not given a chauffeur driver."
Pros: "The time of the plane itself was nice and the ride was quick"
Cons: "The food potions were poor expected more from emirates... I took the same flight to LHR how ever this flight was not cleaned properly and the chairs were uncomfortable... I was sitting at the exit and my luggage bins were filled with blankets hence I had to put my carryon at the end of the plane"
Pros: "Crew helped me with a chamomile to help me sleep."
Cons: "It was quite good"
Pros: "Unprofessional crew member how to treat as GOLD member in business class cabin"
Cons: "No comment"
Pros: "Live sport TV, on board wifi"
Cons: "More livesport TVs and browsing data."
Pros: "The entertainment is very good and it's a smooth ride."
Cons: "Sometimes the crew could come across as brass and disappear for long periods. Also, how do you ever tell the person next to you, who's bigger than you, to try not to bump you every time they move. Definitely made for a not very comfortable flight."
Pros: "I was happy with all aspects of the flight"
Pros: "Not really Seat cushion hard ."
Cons: "Boarding disorganised..little management of the process"
Cons: "There was no acknowledgment of Platinum status with Qantas. I do not expect anything special, and I usually just get a welcome back, but this time there was zero acknowledgment. The seat from DXB to HKG did not quite go “flat”. The upper half went as far back as, i’d say, around 170 degrees."
Pros: "The entertainment is fantastic"
Cons: "The crew, not very hospitable"
Pros: "Alexandra is just not a pretty face."
Cons: "I should have got a premium economy, my section was too cramped."
Pros: "Everything was outstanding"

Pros: "I had my seat changed due to my injured leg, staff acted swiftly, flight was relaxing."
Cons: "They ran out of options on the food and considering it wasn't a full flight that surprised me."
Pros: "I had 4 sectors except the first one 3 of them was with unfriendly cabin crew not smiling at all not responding the calls."

Pros: "Brilliant service from start to finish"
Pros: "Loved the spaciuos seats and great leg room. Food superb!"

Cons: "Child kicking seat from behind for entire flight"
Cons: "Airplane to late"
Cons: "It was too cold"
Pros: "I had a fast and easy check-in at Denpasar airport. In flight service by cabin crew was very good, as I normally get in the business class at Emirates. Flight left Denpasar on time and arrived in Auckland some 30 mins early, which was nice. Enjoyed a late dinner - the mie goreng ayam was particularly tasty!"
Cons: "In the past on overnight flights Emirates I have received a pyjama set in the Business Class, which made it very comfortable to sleep. But this time this was not given, so I had to sleep in my day-wear, which was a bit uncomformtable."
Cons: "Boarding from connecting flight was manic, gate closing as we arrived only to then sit on the plane for about 40 mins before it moved. Extra leg room seats at extra cost are near toilets and watching the comings and goings from there is not pleasant. Staff ok but nothing special, left waiting with forms for lost luggage, little explanation. Plane decor looks tired, seats narrow. Luggage lost. Know why I like to fly Thai airways"
Cons: "Crew staff"
Pros: "Lots of selection in movies"
Cons: "There was a glitch on the entertainment system and the staff tried to reset with no luck. Our row and the back row was affected and we could not watch anything on the screen for a good 2 hrs of the flight. Boarding was rather disoriented. The ground crew did not give clear instructions to control the crowd."
Pros: "My children enjoyed their first flight they were very well spoilt on the flight also the care they took with my mum."
Pros: "Great and friendly cabin crew. Lots of movies to chose. Food was great."

Pros: "Crew very nice and helpful, food was really good and entertainment was very good. The plane was also very clean, i would definitely fly with emirates again"
Pros: "Emirates leg was good. Easy checkin and I think slightly large than usual seats."
Cons: "I bought a return from Emirates with the returning flight from Australia to London as a code share with Qantas. Qantas does not honour the e-ticekts from Emirates and will NOT allow you to preselect seats online. You have to hope for a good seat at airport checkin. Too bad, as I would have been prepared to pay extra for a seat upgrade."
Pros: "Quality airline -new and clean plane with good seats and AV set up"
Cons: "length of flight...."
Pros: "The journey ending"
Cons: "The length of travel!"

Pros: "Travelled Business Class - a great experience."
Cons: "Slow to board."
Pros: "The plane was spacious and we had really good seats , next to the toilet and wall in front of us. Super, as we were traveling with a toddler and he was able to sit on the floor in front of us and play with his toys. Food came out promptly and was tasty. Loved the goodies for the kids, little blanket and scotch pad."
Cons: "The delay in boarding! It’s hard work when traveling with a toddler."
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."
Pros: "I forgot my laptop in the flight and called almost inertial but could not find it yet."
Pros: "Price, comfort, ice, food and drinks"
Cons: "I just don’t like discomfort of others moving their seat back."
Pros: "Very comfortable flight in A380"
Cons: "Boarding at Melbourne was late and somewhat shambolic. Flight attendants did their job but not with enthusiasm or friendliness. Emirates flight attendants seem to have lost some of their enthusiasm and friendliness."

Cons: "Just left to it. Not much fuss made."
Pros: "The service, food and boarding were all excellent. It brought back the joy of flying like what used to know in the 80s."

Cons: "Better food."
Pros: "The crew were very attentive and the pods are comfortable."
Cons: "Why would I have an access to the Cathay Pacific VIP lounge at Gate 65 when my boarding is more than a mile away at Gate 3. There was a VIP lounge at around Gate 4, why was I not given access to that one? As it was I almost missed my flight because of the one mile scramble from the VIP lounge."
Pros: "I like the food, the service, and the smooth flight (as always with Cathay). My Go-To Airline! Very practical too, without compromising quality."
Cons: "Coach Seats... Seems to be getting smaller over time."
Pros: "The crew were friendly, the entertainment on offer was broad and appealed to all passengers. The meal choices were very good, I requested the LFML options and all were good except for the light evening snack at the end of our second flight which was somewhat lacking in flavours and variety."
Cons: "The seats in economy felt cramped on the Boeing 700-300ER, with not much room to recline. This impacted on ability to fully relax and rest on such a long journey. This improved on the Airbus 350 thankfully, which much more leg room."

Cons: "Put a Priority tag on our luggage; Have the Pasta meal for someone sitting in the second row of Premium Economy and then let me eat the economy meal that you substituted instead of interrupting me four times to give me the Premium Economy meal that you said you didn't have. Use a plane other than th"

Pros: "Little more leg room!"
Cons: "i had a surfboard bag that weighed 11lbs and my daughter had a surfboard bag that weighed 21 lbs and we are being charged $200 each both ways for a total charge of $800 round trip. This is an outragous fee for surfboard and other airlines specificly Alaskian Air, Quanties, and Virgin Australia have been letting us travel with surfboard bags for free that weight 3 times that much. I will never take Cathay Pacific again as we paid more for these flights because we had heard they do not charge for surfboard and they have great service. I had a total of $1200 fspending money for food and transportation for my trip to Bali. That leaves me with $400. Never again will I travel with Cathay Pacific and I will be spreading the word through social Media! Not a Happy Customer!!!"
Pros: "The service from start to finish was superb. The flight to Hong Kong had the on board attendants at full service the whole journey. Blankets and pillows were supplied as standard and plenty of complimentary food. There was a genuine sense that the on board attendants wanted you to be as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "I can't think of anything really. Perhaps the seats could have slightly more leg room but hey. What can you expect from economy."
Pros: "Comfortable Economy class on A330. Adequate seating and a good breakfast pastry for a short duration flight."

Pros: "My checked luggage bag was damaged. I noticed the damage only after I I reached home. However, when I reported Cathay Pacific baggage staff were very helpful and professional. I know several airlines who hide behind bureaucratic procedures to stonewall customers. CP is not one of them. Excellent service, before, after and during the flight."
Cons: "Continues to be incinsistent and spotty service."
Cons: "Flight was late. I understand that there could be unexpected problems. But please do not say that due to 'operational reasons'. Sounds like BS. Tell us he actual reason. Arrived late, engine problems, passenger missing, etc."

Pros: "Always consistently good.."
Cons: "Flight was absolutely packed"
Cons: "The system was unsatisfied by me, they made my name wrong on The ticket and say that was a flaut to me and I have to bear the extra cost to onboard. I never use it and recommend everybody not to use it anymore."

Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Great crew, great service"
