Cons: "N/A"

Of course there was a problem with my reservation that they had never seen before which manifested itself by them not being able to print my boarding pass. They called Tokyo and were told that they had never seen my problem before either. Anyway, the ticketing supervisor stayed with me for 45 minutes until they could over come the problem.

People queue up, then they swivel the pole round so I'm in the wrong queue now. Try to move, lose place in queue, they swivel it back the way it was...

Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Staff are very attentive and helpful; the entertainment system is top class"
Cons: "On boarding, the markers for "business" and "diamond" class are only distinguished by a (low) signpost at the head of the queue. If you're further back or not so tall s difficult to see which queue is correct... quite a few people (not me fortunately!) got turned away because they don't know ANA's boarding system. Also a problem with boarding at HND where the overhead monitors show BIz but not First/Diamond. As some other reviews pointed out, BBC news just didn't work. CNN worked intermittently."

Pros: "Seat was comfortable, flight attendants were attentive and the food wasn't bad."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Everything. Singapore Airlines had a great reputation. Imagine my disappointment. It was a horrible flight. The crew was nice enough, but inattentive. The food, if such a term may be applied here, was inedible. Just vile. In flight entertainment was a complete joke. Boarding was awful, but it always is. Seats were extremely uncomfortable. This racket is the ultimate way to rip somebody off of $1000. Horrible."

Pros: "Loved the food/Movies/seats."
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:)"

Pros: "Crew"
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: "I haven’t flown Emirates, but SQ beats the many others I have flown by a significant margin—especially the Chinese airlines, but also all major US airlines, JAL, Korean, et al."

Cons: "None"

Pros: "Very good service! Lots of flight attendants and they were kind the flight was long, but mostly smooth. The entertainment was good and there was a lot of it."
Cons: "The flight map was a mess. It either said we had 115 hours of flying time or 3.5 hours. Also, it showed the plane pointing in the opposite direction that we were flying in. A minor issue, but weird."

Pros: "I like the personal TV, my foot rest and water holder frequent water serve,"
Cons: "For me coffee is too strong, and I like the food on the way to Tokyo better than on the way back to LA"

Pros: "Great service. Really friendly and polite. Lots of current movies and TV shows to watch and provided earbuds with adaptors. Made the experience a lot more pleasant."
Cons: "The seats can be laid bag pretty far and the people in front of me decided to recline for a majority of the 10 hour flight. I wish the chairs either didn't do this or the flight attendants would have said something. I didn't feel like I had the authority to do anything about it. Also it was so warm! I have no idea if there was a fan."

Cons: "My Vegan meal was terrible."

Pros: "The service and fast flight"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Ease of checking. Empty seat between us"
Cons: "Can't upgrade with krisflyer miles"

Pros: "The aircraft was clean, new, spacious and quiet. The bathrooms were regularly maintained. The food quality, selection and quantity was excellent for the economy class. Even the serving utensils were solid metal and had a very high quality feel to it. Having an endless supply of mid flight snacks was also appreciatd I always like the warm wet towels, which were offered at take off and landing. The entertainment choices were endless, but because it had USB and regular power, I was able to work on my laptop and listen to my podcasts on phone without worrying about running out of battery."
Cons: "The crew lacked its usual pep and cheer. For some reason they seemed very introverted and tired. First time on Singapore Airline that I noticed. The amenities kit was a bit on the cheap side. Also, only the supplied two prong headphones could be used with the entertainment system, I would have preferred an option to use my high end ones -- this was the main reason I chose to just work and listen to my own music/podcasts instead of watching a movie. We boarded and disembarked through the business sections and the aisles were too narrow. The announcements were hard to hear and the temperature was set too low for half of the flight (to kept fluctuating requiring constant adjustment of blanket/jacket). Having said that will keep flying them."

Pros: "clean aircraft and friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "uncomfortable seats, average meals, poor infotainment selection"

Pros: "Made Econ class feel like biz :)"

Pros: "The best long leg flight I've been on. I managed to get a whole row to myself and that made the 12hr flight so much better. The crew was very professional, kind, attentive, and it was grand."

Pros: "Awesome crew and food"
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable.."

Pros: "The flight attendants were super attentive and took great care of me, even bringing me headache medicine."
Cons: "I was in a front row seat which meant using my table in the armrest would wake up my neighbor. (Not a big deal but a little awkward) It was also hard to sleep because the seats didn't recline enough."

Pros: "It was the best service ive ever had. The flight attendants came right away and were always coming up the aisle making sure we eye well hydrated and fed"

Pros: "The flight staff were very friendly and always seemed to be eager to help all the passengers. The menu on the flight was also excellent. Wonderful flight"
Cons: "The layover in Japan was not exactly what I hoped for but I managed OK. Short layovers work better for me."

Pros: "Superb service and entertainment with excellent staff"

Cons: "Food was below average"

Pros: "The departure and arrival times were good in order to sleep the night, and wake up in Tokyo refreshed. Cabin crew were fairly friendly, but not the Cathay of a few years ago."
Cons: "NONE of the business class center seats would recline. This meant in order to recline and get some rest, the crew had to dismantle your seat and release the locks manually. This meant the seat was in that position until time to land. So I had to make a choice to sleep or eat, horrible for CX."

Pros: "Professional and friendly Crew & the movies"
Cons: "Too cold, seats to narrow, food not so tasty."

Pros: "Been flying CX for years and for some reasons this time all the staff members were excellent. From ground to air crew everyone was well informed, nice and helpful. Another surprise was the vegan meal I ordered. Airplane food in general is disgusting, but this time the vegan meal was delicious."
Cons: "Flying out from JFK is a nightmare, we had to wait for 40 mins on the runway. Not sure if airlines can actually improve that?"

Pros: "CX crews are professional as they are very customer oriented"
Cons: "The ground services in Melbourne airport was really bad! Chaotic arrangements for boarding and especially unpleasant staffs!"

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: "Did not inform us of a flight delay until way after the flight time had past. Waited an extra to take off."

Cons: "I didn’t have a pillow."

Pros: "Nil"
Cons: "A very old product in the CX fleet. The old exonomy seat is terrible. Service was not attentive. Entertainment system was not responsive. CX is definitely going downhill."

Pros: "Excellent ..."
Cons: "We were served only breakfast and lunch ... in 16 hour travel with a cup of noodles if you asked, the stewardess needed to get reminders couple of times. The steward serving food was excellent. No coffee nor drinks were offered after meals. Food was good though."

Cons: "The seat was a bit small for me, legroom a bit tight."

Cons: "Too salty for the meal"

Pros: "Little more leg room!"

Cons: "I didn't like their foods specially fish & chicken made me nausea"

Cons: "Continues to be incinsistent and spotty service."

Pros: "very accommodating, I don,t know that hand carry bags changed to smaller size now, they helped me checked it in for free. I travel to the Phillippines every year ,I will fly w/ Cathay Pacific from now on. THANK YOU"

Pros: "Great crew, great service"
Cons: "Could use a greater reclining angle in economy."

Cons: "On time - all good."

Cons: "3h delay on the way in 1h delay on the way back"

Pros: "Comfy seats and the entertainment for economy class were the best perks and price as well. Flight was also on time."

Pros: "Cathy service"
Cons: "Amazing"

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: "Luggage was damage and I didnt notice it till I arrived at connecting airport terminal in manila. Didnt have time to file a claim as I have to rush for my local connecting flight. Hopefully Cathay Pacific can take a late damage claim without a report for my luggage"

Pros: "Travelling with a 1 yr old, the extra leg room and space in the bassinet seats was appreciated. Service and help from staff was outstanding. Recommend for travelling with young children. Minimises the pain!"

Cons: "Seat didn't recline"

Pros: "Boarding was smooth."
Cons: "Cathay Pacific needs to work on improving their cabin layout for B777. The inside is quite outdated."

Cons: "We missed our connection because Cathay was delayed. They booked us in a nice hotel in Hong Kong but failed to reimburse us for food as promised. In fact, no one was able to prove us with proper information on how to handle refunds. The next flight was late over an hour. No reason provided. Overall, no one knows what's up and any inconveniences are the customer's problem to deal with."

Pros: "Good leg room in coach. Comfortable seats."
Cons: "All good"

Pros: "All as expected - no surprises"

Pros: "The plane actually arrived an hour earlier than expected."

Pros: "Access to Cathay lounge. Went to the Wing noodle bar and coffee loft. Had a good bite to eat before boarding flight running 15 mins late. My request to have my meal service delayed was welcomed by staf."

Cons: "Not leaving at the advertised time both from SFO and NAD Not having enough overhead space in the NAD to TBU flight."

Pros: "Economy seats were slightly better than most, but the configuration of the 2 seats was good 2 of us to have our own area. Food was good and unexpected for a 3 hr flight."
Cons: "Movies/TV shows were limited compared to other airlines. I am taller so seating in any economy seat is cramped at best."

Pros: "We arrived safely"
Cons: "90 minutes delay without information or appology."

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: "Fantastic crew on board. Great service. Food left a bit to be desired. Entertainment a bit dated but great value for money & extremely punctual"

Pros: "The staff was all very nice and I always felt like they were doing their best to help. the situation seemed out of their control. It was nice of the airline to provide hotel and meal vouchers. (The meal vouchers didn't go very far at the Sheraton where all the food is very over priced.)"
Cons: "My flight was delayed 16 hours so I missed my entire trip to Fiji. This is devastating to me and I feel I should be compensated. Fiji Airways didn't notify me of the delay until I was already at the airport checking in so it wasted even more time and money. I bought this ticket because the flight time was convenient. Then it left at 3:55am which is the worst time to leave because I couldn't sleep beforehand and felt awful the whole evening and during the flight and after. To top it off the airline wouldn't check my bag through to my final destination. I was very unhappy with how this occurred."

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 was so perfect especially on board,staff are friendly and very helpful"
Cons: "When we get to Fiji entrance was so hot ,no air conditioner staff are so slow and only one staff serve ,people has to wait for long time ,don’t mind waiting but was so hot to wait for long especially with kids"

Pros: "Nice cabin crew"

Cons: "Curry, breakfast sausage, amount of leg room."

Pros: "Crew."
Cons: "Food."

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: "Crew's service"
Cons: "Better organizing of boarding"

Pros: "Nice food."
Cons: "Planes feel not well maintained, no electric outlets, not enough screens..."

Pros: "Good selection of entertainment."
Cons: "After many hours the seats were not too uncomfortable. But that's after 10 hours flying. It was nice that they reclined like they did. But the padding could have been better."

Pros: "Staff were very helpful and attentive"
Cons: "Seat not comfortable, and needed repair. Entertainment very limited Limited checked baggage (one piece only)"

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

Pros: "the service. coffee and teas was very good. probably because of the Fiji kind attendants and water."

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: "Friendly staff, good food, comfortable ride."

Cons: "Airport crew rude"

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

Pros: "Got to Fiji safe."
Cons: "1. Checked in was very slow. When we got done, we have to run to the gate cuz they are already boarding. 2. Seats were very small, too tight even for people with short legs. 3. Not much movies to choose from, it was an 11 hour flight, at least give us more movies to choose from. 4. Just saw crew once, when they were passing out meals and collecting them."

Cons: "The food was not very good."

Pros: "Smoorth landing, great staff, meals, checked bag"
Cons: "Crowded by fellow psger who left tv on all night and tapped feet for the full flight"

Pros: "All of the staff we encountered were helpful and friendly. The seats were as comfortable as possible given the length of the flight."
Cons: "Some of the food was actually quite good; breakfast on the return flight was not good. The cabin was extremely cold...I wore jeans, and a sweatshirt and even with the blanket I was uncomfortably cold. My husband, who is rarely cold, even felt chilled."

Pros: "Good food, good service, efficient boarding. B737-800 in economy can be cramped but thats a given on any airline. Full service flight, will fly again"

Pros: "Covered by headline"

Pros: "Got us to Nadi safely."
Cons: "We had a banana from LAX airport and intended to eat it on the 13-hour overnight flight. Unfortunately we forgot about it. The customs at Nadi found it on X-ray and slapped us with FJ$400 fine! One of the Fijian bio security officer told us that "by handing out big fines, we hope the airlines will remind passengers of biosecurity rules...". But Fijian airways failed to do that. $400 fine is a horrible start of your vacation and we will never come back to visit Fiji. We will also advise all our friends not to visit Fiji on facebook."

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: "FLIGHT CREW ON PLANE ARE ALL SO POLITE HELPFUL. FOOD WAS GREAT."
Cons: "AND HAD TO WAIT WHILE ME AND MY BROTHER SEARCHED FOR ONE. EACH TIME WE BOARDED A FLIGHT WE WERE TOLD THAT IT Won't HAPPEN AGAIN AND IT DID IN LAX NADI AND TONGA. IF MY MOM HAD GONE ALONE WHO KNOW WHERE SHE WOULD BE. HANDICAP AND WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBLE CUSTOMERS SHOULD REALLY BE TAKEN CARE OF BECAUSE THEY CANNOT DO MUCH."

Pros: "The people"
Cons: "The food"
