Airline reviews

Pros: "One of several preferred airlines when flying to Asia. Really enjoy their service, and it's wonderful to wake up to many beauties in view!"

Pros: "They passed by me when they served the meals because they thought I had it already which it was someone behind me who got his meal since he had a special meal request. So I ended up to talk to them that I haven’t had my meal yet. It was embarrassing moment for me. They seemed thinking that I lied to them."
Cons: "They are well trained crews so I have no better ideas about improvements"

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: "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"

Cons: "Softer seats and more movies"

Cons: "We had to go through security after coming in from international and I went through a biometric scanner which I’ve done 100’s of Times I was very unnecessarily felt up for 10 minutes. I had shorts and a T-shirt on, and was pretty sure after the 1st round of groping that there was nothing there"

Pros: "Boarding went smoothly, crew extremely curtious and helpful."
Cons: "Plane was an older model and I did not have strength to recline seat. Quality of seat back screens poor and hand sets difficult to navigate for a technophobe like Ma."

Pros: "The lunch and dinner menu was excellent"
Cons: "more bathrooms."

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

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: "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: "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: "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: "I have always enjoyed flying on Singapore Airlines. There were no delays on my connecting flight coming out of Tokyo to Los Angeles. The huge plane was like flying in a small "transportable town.""
Cons: "I had a long connection wait in Tokyo, but that was not too bad since I got a great price on the round trip ticket - less than $700!"

Pros: "I like that I could check in 2 suitcase and able to choose my sitting when it's available."

Cons: "It was too hot in the plane."

Cons: "Suggest online check-in providing change seat options"

Pros: "CX crews are professional as they are very customer oriented"

Pros: "not too bad"
Cons: "not too bad"

Pros: "Crew on leg from Melbourne to Hong Kong terrible - Hong Kong to Boston good"
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"

Cons: "deffetive TV..i just sleep thru out my flght"

Pros: "Good seat - request granted"
Cons: "They gave menu only to find out they ran out of what I wanted. Don’t even show or hand out menu so passengers won’t expect."

Cons: "Everything is fine"

Cons: "Our flight from HK to LAX we were told that the pilot refused to wait for us even if we arrived in HK from cebu at 11:35 of July 29 and our flight to lax was at 12:05 .Cathay couldn’t do anything about it. We were billeted in a hotel far from the airport with free breakfast but no lunch was provided and the earliest flight they could give us was scheduled at 16:35 of Juy 30. Upon returning to the airport I asked a cathay staff regarding provisions for lunch but I was told there’s none.Overall our trip both to and from LAX were very uncomfortable and inconvenient. I hope Cathay will do something better in situations like we encountered. As of this writing I and my husband are still at HK airport waiting for our flight to LAX."

Pros: "Little more leg room!"

Pros: "The flight attendants in the airplane, both going and coming back to my destination were very nice. I really appreciated their hard work and attentiveness."
Cons: "At the HK airport the lady attending the check in, I believe her name is Tammy, I could not understand exactly what she was asking me to do because her voice was so low and her English was not clear. When I did not comply to what she was asking she very rudely did what she was asking me to do yet I could not hear or understand her. She even rolled her eyes. Very uncalled for and rude."

Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Why do people fly with infants?"

Pros: "All"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "The service"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Food was great, and the business class 777 seats are a delight. And the captain shuts up through the entire flight --- no interrupting your sleep or movie with stupid observations that no-one wants to hear."
Cons: "The quality of the screens (crappy slow resistive touchscreens) is completely unacceptable for business class in 2018. China Airlines screens are VASTLY superior in their hardware, their speed, and the quality of their UI. And running an ad before EVERY movie --- in business?! Talk about an airline having no sense of class. That's a cheap, stupid move."

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Food options"

Pros: "The airline crew. Very attentive and immaculate"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Seat is hard to adjust."

Pros: "that is great flight. I'm very with fight"

Pros: "I like the service and the foods are so delicious."
Cons: "The charging port when I was on my way to Hong Kong from Los Angeles, it wasn't working so that's the only thing that I didn't like."

Pros: "Staff were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The food was atrocious and this was business class. The toilet lights were so dimmed all the time you couldn't see what was going on. Last year we flew business class Cathay pacific from Hong Kong to Melbourne and loved it. This year we decided to fly from Melbourne to Dusseldorf and then from Frankfurt to Melbourne with this airline. Won't be doing that again. Why pay business class fares to be disapointed"

Cons: "The sound did not work for my video, the food was not good, the seat was uncomfortable, and my stewardess was rude."

Cons: "Flight delayed in take off twice. Then diverted via Manila. Not ideal."

Pros: "Friendly and hard working staff. Clean aircraft. Decent movie choices. Gluten free meal available, though I can't make a selection for GF Meal + Seafood (pescatarian). I get chicken or meat in GF, and I don't eat either."
Cons: "Boarding is not by row numbers -- this is chaotic with long snaking line. Aircraft Toilets get dirty quickly with urine on the commode and the floor. There needs to be a quick drying wet disinfection system. You must enable Gluten Free meals to come with 3 choices - Veg, Non Veg, Seafood only."

Cons: "We had to go through the security twice. One the bags we scanned and the other before getting into the airline. Was a waste of time."

Cons: "there was no vegetarian food booked for me (as usual) even though i mentioned it while booking also sent an email 3 days before the flight to vayama agency, asking to confirm vegetarian meal, luggage allowance and connection i hong kong.. vayama replied few days after plane took off from melbourne. i also didnt have a chance to have a window seat, that was my preference and couldnt sleep during all flights at all. i wouldnt choose cathay pacific again. their crew was not helpful at all."

Pros: "Not like but was okay with the leg room, comfort and entertainment on board the aircraft."
Cons: "The water they were serving was not bottled and tasted like restroom water. However when I brushed my teeth in the restroom, it did not have that horrid smell and taste as the drinking water did. Two inflight staff was rude, Didn't get their names but both ladies blocked passengers way when they were trying to get back to their seats and rolled their eyes at a lot of passengers for various requests. Completely not professional!"

Pros: "Nothing"

Cons: "Delay delay delay !!! And nothing served. Not even a cup of water"

Cons: "The ticketing experience almost cost me missing my connection. I did not get my con# or my second boarding pass so after customs I was forced to go back out and wait for a bus to get to a different terminal. I waited 30 min. Very poor handling."

Pros: "The plane was new and clean. The crew was so friendly and welcoming. Anything we needed on our flight they were more than happy to oblige and always did it with a smile"

Pros: "The flight left on time"
Cons: "Not using Air Fiji."

Pros: "Polite"
Cons: "More selections for movies . Fresh veggies or fruit in meals."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Crew great. Seat was a major let down, too small."
Cons: "Just the seats really."

Pros: "I was excited to come back to the USA after a long vacation. When we arrived at the airport, the security started asking me questions immediately even before I checked in. They demanded I show them the ticket before it was even printed. When I explained that I was trying to check-in for the first time. They told me I was going to be reviewed upstairs and put a sticker in my passport. I proceeded to check in and just walked thru the normal security measures. After scanning my bags in security, I discovered there was no security meeting and proceeded to my gate. After the gate, everyone in line was subjected to a second security screen. This was a manual search and all articles were removed and repacked again. Then we proceeded to the plane entry where everyone needed to verify passport and ticket again. Later in the flight, I was having indigestion problem from my documented medical acid reflux problem and asked for a cup of water. He said sure and walked away. He never came back again.10 minutes later, I pressed the attendant call button again. 10 minutes later and no one came over. 15 minutes after that Albert came back over and said, "I see you have your call light on, please put your seat back up again." I can complied and he immediately turned off the light and walked away. 10 minutes later, Albert came by with the water cart and parked it right behind my seat. He proceeded to hand out water to everyone behind my seat. 30 minutes later the water cart arrived and I finally received my water (75 minutes after I asked!) Thanks Albert, I'll be following up with your management to see that disciplinary action is taken."
Cons: "See above. The above problem caused me discomfort, pain, stress."

Pros: "Ilana, the attendant at the check in was so amazing!!! She went out of her way to find our friend a seat close to us. We just loved everything and everyone about Fiji airways. THANK YOU!!"

Pros: "As above"
Cons: "Breakfast was pretty average"

Pros: "Food, comfort & on board entertainment not the best but for the price of the flight it was well worth it. The flight crew and those on the ground in Nadi were amazing. Fantastic service all round. Don't forget to use the Premier Lounge in Nadi if you're there for a few hours. FJ$100 for full lounge access. It was an absolute pleasure. Best way to get to the USA from NZ."

Pros: "Nike complaints good food everything was on time"
Cons: "Everything was fine"

Pros: "I liked the music and movies"
Cons: "I was very close to my neighbor and didnt even feel comfortable to get up and go to the bathroom because I didn't want to wake him."

Pros: "Overall it went quickly."
Cons: "It was little disorganized at the gate, there were several crying babies, and someone was throwing up behind me."

Cons: "We did not get any notice as we were in the flight from figi! When we arrived we were just told flight has been cancelled and we should make our own hotel arrangement as next available flight is tomorrow"

Pros: "This flight was on-board a Fiji Airways plan, not Air NZ. The crew were fantastic, the food was very tasty, all sorts of drinks available, lots of overhead storage, plenty of entertainment options on video screen, restrooms adequate/typical, great pilot, smooth take-off and landing."
Cons: "I did not enjoy the tiny, cramped seats - the smallest I've been squeezed into in many years. Hard bottom and narrow; when the girl in front of me put her seat back, her headrest was right in front of my teeth. Also, they use the old school dual-headphones that don't sit flat on your ears and there was no jack available for personal ear buds. Opportunities for improvement!"

Pros: "Crew was very nice and did a great job."
Cons: "Security at Fiji was rude and redundant. Never have I had my bags searched 5 times before boarding a plane."

Pros: "Service"

Cons: "They was a great selection but many seemed old and B-grade."

Pros: "Had my backpack searched 4 times....one on the walkway on a folding table they set up...as I unhooked my bag (due to them breaking the two zippers in an earlier search) i asked what they were searching for and she saod "we search all American's bags" I said "just Americans?" she responded "Indians too"...then said "go ahead" after I mentioned the zipper issue.....destroyed any chance this would be an enjoyable flight or that I would ever return to Fiji, shame beautiful islands."

Pros: "They did hand out thin blankets."
Cons: "The temperature in the airplane... Couldn't feel my body!"

Cons: "Despite buying my ticket with virgin and being a platinum Fiji air tried to charge me $300 for an extra bag."

Pros: "The flight crew was friendly and efficient. it was a pleasure to fly with them."
Cons: "The entertainment system had EXACTLY the same movies/shows we had on the flight over. Since we flew like 14 hours, we saw everything we wanted to see the 1st time. Maybe offer different choices on southbound and northbound itineraries."

Cons: "I had no problems"

Pros: "Same as above.."

Pros: "The service was very friendly."
Cons: "My knees while sitting upright drive into the seat in front of me. No extra legroom seats available. Please start saving these for people who actually need them. Also, boarding was like cattle hearding, lack of organization caused anxiety ... albeit my wife and I were amused by people without direction."

Cons: "The seat were not that comfortable!"

Pros: "We got sone roomy seats it was nice"

Pros: "On time. Good aircraft. Good landing"

Cons: "The food,rude staf ,small and uncomfortable seats,outdated entertainment system. A staff member had the nerve to tell me to let a first class customer go before me to the restroom (although I was in line to use my assigned restroom) because “he was first class and his assigned restroom was occupied.“"

Pros: "4 seats to myself"
Cons: "Being woken up 2 hrs before landing"

Pros: "The landing at LAX was the best landing I experienced in years (I make about 60 flights/year). Cabin crew (like all Fijians) was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "For your very long flights better seating in the economy (something like BA Economy +) would be very much appreciated, even if the cost of the flight was higher. Otherwise the only option is to fly business class, which is more than 3x costlier."

Pros: "I really appreciated how the crew enforced window shades down for the majority of the flight. It really helped me sleep like I was hoping to so that I can be better adjusted to the time change and reduce jet lag."

Cons: "Although they are being very efficient, they collect blankets and headphones 45 min before landing and I could have still used them for 45 minutes!"

Pros: "The friendliness and helpfulness of the crew."
Cons: "That we had a window seat, but on getting to Nadi found that had been given away and we had two seats in the middle section. Not real happy about that."

Pros: "Everything except food"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "On time,friendly crew"
Cons: "Seats are a bit small for a long flight."

Pros: "Excellent service from crew members. Genuine Fiji hospitality"
Cons: "Angled seats and limited IFE"

Cons: "Same as above comment. Plus something needs to change about bringing water bottles on to the plane from Fiji airport. It's just dumb to put people on a flight for 10+ hours with no water. Not happy with this experience."

Pros: "Service. On time"
Cons: "Small seats"

Pros: "Fiji airways food it horrible.........cant even eat it.. management should eat the slop they give us,, the service is horrible...we are treated like cattle unfortunately i must fly Fiji airways as they have a concession Fiji from LAX"
Cons: "NOTHING .............MY ADVISE IF POSSIBLE AVOID FLYING ON FIJI AIRWAYS"

Cons: "I had a seat assignment for my NAN-LAX flight and it was not honored. I had seat 9b assigned but when I got to the airport check in they put me in row 40."

Cons: "Boarding passes were not properly issued causing us to miss connection in LA. Flight left Nadi an hour late and although pilot indicated time would be made up, a 10+ hour flight resulted in less than 15 minutes of time made up. There is no possible reason a flight of this length could not make up the entire deficiency. We were told customer service reps would be available for passengers with tight connections. The customer service rep basically told us there was nothing she could do since we had to go thru customs. Will never fly this airline again. Fly to New Zealand previously on Air New Zealand and will use them in future. Price difference is not worth the service deficiencies."

Pros: "Tried to change seat assignment in Wellington, but no one could help and were not able to do anything in Nadi. Forced to sit in tge middle seats although my husband has a history of blood clots and needs to move during the flight. Very cramped flight. My favorite thing on Fiji airways are the blankets. Big and soft - very luxurious. It was a overnight flight, but I felt there was not enough water offered during the flight. Overall, good value for money."

Pros: "Time of arrival"
Cons: "Service"

Pros: "Entertainment was awesome!"
Cons: "Leg room I paid for actually feels like room on my normal domestic flights. Need more 'leg room'. The food is so processed, it's beyond horrible. It was not edible to me. Boarding was chaotic and unorganized. Too cold on the plane."

Pros: "The meal was nice and the crew was pleasant. The flight was relatively smooth and there were no mix-up or problems with my luggage after the initial issue of having to pay to check in my carry-on due to being overweight."
Cons: "Cramped seating a bit much for such a long flight. The attendants were a little slow to pick up the rubbish from snacks, drinks and meals."

Pros: "Loved the friendly staff and the food was surprisingly tasty, although some meals were considerably nicer than others. There was plenty to do - great options of movies and shows - and the electronics worked perfectly."
Cons: "Wished WiFi was available and eye masks were offered."

Pros: "The people"

Cons: "I don’t know why but I felt like they just didn’t care about your needs, I’m diabetic, and I needed to eat something sweet because my sugar levels dropped low, I asked the stewardess for a cookie but she didn’t want to give me one, I had to bagg her for a cookie, Very disappointing."

Cons: "old 777, no storage, not comfortable, entertainment system not working via remote, service so so."

Pros: "food"
Cons: "immigration"

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.

Cons: "Not much to like there"

Pros: "List of movies"
Cons: "The remote control did not work"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Poor service, rude flight attendants, didn’t give me seat they told me they were giving me, terrible food, flight attendants run past you instead of taking their time to give people beverages."

Cons: "I was notified once I arrived to the airport that the fight had been cancelled. This created a great inconvenience since I had a work meeting that I had to attend and was not able due to cancellation. I was moved to a separate flight within a different airline, which I appreciate but I still missed my work meeting due to the new schedule."

Cons: "The menu mainly. I have to understand that passengers are Filipino. Everything is so with sugar! It is not a complain. just I will have to get organized next time to buy some fruit or something more in accordance with diabetes and high blood pressure. overall great trip!"

Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "A Philippine Airlines check-in personnel did not fail to make my family feel extremely disrespected by treating us in such a rude manner at their counter. After verifying our information, she proceeded to tell us we had no reserved seats for our flight. When I told her we had seat numbers (thus reserved seats) when I checked their website the night before, she had the audacity to imply that we were lying about these mediocre seats! After speaking to the supervisor, she then proceeded to tell us that we should be thankful for the seats she was able to give us, WHICH WERE THE EXACT SAME SEATS THAT WERE LISTED ON THEIR WEBSITE THE DAY BEFORE. Philippine Airlines need to better train their check-in personnel proper customer service to prevent passengers from having such unpleasant experiences with their staff. Our check-in process would have gone smoothly had she not replied in such a snarky manner to us and implied that we owe her for the seats we had in the first place."

Pros: "The service is good. Typical Philippine airlines, friendly service."

Cons: "It was the shortest flight time I've ever had from cebu going back to LA"

Cons: "My flight lax- going mnla was very uncomfortable.. the plane was so small. No tv, movie and music.. it was an old plane of PAL.. i was upset and other passengers. But going back was better.. I'll rate them 5/10"

Pros: "Everything no complaints."

Pros: "Everything else was fine other than the comments as described below."
Cons: "Saw a specific female crew member ignore a passenger raising his hand and repeatedly saying excuse me to ask for a blanket, and she straight turned around to walk the other way. It's not difficult to get blankets from the overhead bin and with the possibility of other passengers asking, it's part of your job. A male crew member was attentive to the passenger after he immediately recognized the passenger's request walking through the aisle. This was from MNL to NRT. Also on one of the connecting flights (could have been same as above), the flight departed late because they allowed another passenger through that wasn't suppose to be on that flight on to the plane. They need to have better boarding pass scanners and /or the employees should pay better attention to that main detail. Air was really dry in the cabin, suggestion is to add some kind of humidifier in the plane to decrease dryness to the nose."

Pros: "They gave extra fried chicken, in addition to the meals on the plane"
Cons: "The flight was 3 hours late and they made no accommodations for that fact. I had to rely on my wits the kindness of my connecting Airline and my ability to run across 5 terminals to make it. They did not even give me the correct time as to when their flight was scheduled to arrive. They were off by an hour"
