Pros: "Espresso coffee, champagne, crew, headphones"

Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "My seat was very hard"

Cons: "With no food preferences specified, it takes a significantly longer time to get your meal as there are a lot of people who have special dietary requirements on certain routes."

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."

Pros: "Excellent crew services"
Cons: "Entertainment system is rather tired for today’s standard for first tier airlines, in particular the headphone jacks which may not work from wear & tear. It’s a hit & miss whether the sound works or not. Obviously mine didn’t on one side this time. Very frustrating if you are on a long flight and there’s nothing you can do if the flight is full."

Pros: "Friendly, smiling staff, ever happy to help, nice food"
Cons: "Seats on the A380 upper deck economy are too uncomfortable, couldn't relax at all during the 5h red-eye to Singapore"

Cons: "This flight is on an old plane. The entertainment system was dated and the seats didn't recline properly. Food wasn't very good and they offered a very limited selection considering it is a 7-hour flight. Not worth doing Singapore Airlines business class for this leg."

Pros: "New plane"
Cons: "Nothing in particular"

Pros: "Again very friendly and efficient service ."

Pros: "The staff was very responsive and the food was great. Ground staff in SIngapore helped me to modify the tickets due to us missing our connection to Phuket. Very helpful. Irene at the transfer desk was an excellent manager. The wheel chair staff was excellent all through."
Cons: "It would be great it the seats were leather so that plane would feel more cleaner."

Pros: "The attendants are pleasant to the eye, thats about it."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Flight was returned from tarmac and delayed for more than 7 hours. No accommodation was provided, even for people with young kids. 15$ coupon was provided interested, are you serious?"

Pros: "Excellent seat and pillow cushion... The krisworld in-flight entertainment was extremely easy to use while still having a wide selection of films. The touchscreen was also very simple and did t require a great deal of force to press a button...the steamed towel given before take off was extremely relaxing and set a high standard of expectations during this flight. Almost all of the those expectations were met. The toilets were extremely clean and the service of toothbrushes was the icing on the cake. For my meal I ordered Indian fish curry which could have been a little more spicy (I am Indian so I eat foods with many spices)."
Cons: "I would have liked a wider selection of foods in the menu.. Limited options. Also, I had a 11:45 AM flight from BOM-SIN which was supposed to start boarding at 10:45, but instead we started boarding at 11:30 and took off at 12:10."

Pros: "Safety, Friendlyness, Seats, Entertainment"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "poor ground and inflight crews hospitality poor food quality poor food variation"

Pros: "They whole process was just too tiring, especially when passengers were expected to lug around all their packed bags, instead of the airline catering to hold the luggage in the airport holding area"

Pros: "Very nice crew."
Cons: "Why are the slippers/socks not distributed before take off or already in the seat pocket? Why is the food order taken after take of and not before? Why does singapore airline have old seats I new planes? What happened to the earlier leader? Friendly staff alone does not make the deal. And given ticket prices SQ is not attractive any more for me."

Pros: "everything, excellent job"

Pros: "On time. Attentive crew."

Cons: "Qatar in Belgrade didn't tell me about alchocol bottle I bought in the Duty Free and that i could not go with it all the way to melbourne even bag was sealed and receipt was visible.

Pros: "More leg room, easy boarding and comfortable flight in economy"
Cons: "NA"

Cons: "At Mumbai airport, during check-in I was told that my carry on bag plus personal item together should weigh not more than 7kgs!! I have never had any airline actually weigh my personal item (laptop backpack) before this journey. Eventually I ended up stuffing my check-in bags with everything I was carrying in my carry on bag before I was allowed to check in. The weird thing is, I was never told about this rule on my journey from the US to India."

Cons: "During check-in, I observed inconsistent application of rules with respect to hand luggage. My carry-on and laptop bag combined were 12 kgs and was told that I had to pay excess baggage fees. While, there were quite a few people on the plane whose hand luggage was clearly above 12 kgs."

Cons: "Had an 11hr delay overall, 3.5hrs sitting on the tarmac only to be told to disembark for dinner at the airport. Then told that we won't be getting on until 7am the next day, but only really started boarding at 8:30am. By the time we were told about the reschedule to the next morning, it was too late to get a hotel room (too far away) and was told that I could use a 'Quiet Lounge' at the airport (which wasn't quiet). While waiting to board at 7am the next day, ground staff told us that they had to change the plane so there would be a further delay. On boarding, we discovered that it was the SAME PLANE."

Cons: "i have requested the child meal on the web site and also requested the seat preferences, however when i boarded the flight, i came to know that they have only honored the seat preferences but not the food. on the serving menu, the veg option was available but we informed that the veg is available only if we have requested it on the web site, i had to survive with add-on food but not the real meal. crew were struggling to serve food for us."

Pros: "Personal courteous service"
Cons: "Quality of food"

Pros: "service and staff was polite & friendly"

Pros: "The flight got delayed for 4.5 hours. We didnt receive any call, sms or email informing us about the delay. We went to the airport for checkin only to discover that it was delayed! No justification or any reason were given to us. We are travelling with a baby. We had to get a taxi to return to our home and return back to the airport after 4.5 hours. Called qatar airways and send them a xomplaint email. No one cared to answer. The worst flight ever. Will never go with qatar airways anymore"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Long hours from Doha to Atlanta"

Pros: "Boarding and ticket counter crew were good."
Cons: "Business class passengers were not given a priority.The food was mediocre and didn't compare to other airlines. The crew was impolite and attend to passenger's needs.

Pros: "Hospitality"
Cons: "NA"

Pros: "-Cleanliness -on time arrival"
Cons: "-Cramped seats I have flown long haul to Melbourne on Cathay and Emirates and Qatar airways economy seats were excruciating to sit in."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "There was nothing to like. Considering my travel experience with Qatar & middle eastern airlines they've gone worst. The aircrafts need to be upgraded especially on long flights. Food was horrible and so was the entertainment. Would not recommend or fly Qatar again."

Cons: "Worse staff at mumbai airport. Even thou i was ready to pay for the upgrade to business class. They told me am not eligible to do it. Extremly dissappointed with the airline and staff"

Pros: "Website and in-flight service is quite good. Flights take-off and land on time. The crew is international and quite professional."
Cons: "Onboard entertainment system is not quite good. The touch screen is not responsive and the movie selection is not very good. This is where Emirates excels."

Pros: "I was the third person in the line. The ticket agent couldn't find my ticket as multiple tickets were booked on my name and all tickets showed X mark. After 20-30 minutes of wait, I finally got my ticket but the security and custom lines were very long by that time. Never flying Qatar again."

Pros: "Good staff and service"
Cons: "Require more leg room"

Pros: "Movie selection was good."
Cons: "Everything else. Boarding was chaos, Ground crew should show authority while boarding passengers."

Pros: "It was nice service and hospitality"

Cons: "They knew we would never make the connection flight and still they told us it will be fine after adding a stop which changes the schedules. When we arrived the connection plane was still there but we were never registered on it. I will ask for compensations even if I have to take a lawyer."

Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy. Blankets and pillows were ample and already at the seat."

Cons: "Quality of Indian food"

Pros: "Comfortable seats in Premium Economy."

Cons: "There was a mixup for special meal that i ordered...wrong marking of seat number,even after having a prepaid confimed seat"

Pros: "The seats are fairly comfortable, and the service was great."
Cons: "The economy seats are obviously not great. The extended legroom seats are still quite narrow, though the legroom is great."

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."

Pros: "Seating space for short people..not average height people"
Cons: "Wider space for seats"

Pros: "Crew were friendly and premium economy seats were spacious and comfortable"
Cons: "Clean the toilets more regularly. One time, the floor was wet and not much paper left in the holders."

Cons: "Line up to the plane shouldbe in short time"

Pros: "The crew was hard working, food was ok"
Cons: "Line up for boarding as well as storaging of our carry-on could have been managed better"

Pros: "Overall service"
Cons: "Nothing specific."

Pros: "Cleanliness and no disruptions"
Cons: "The crew were slow to clear the food trays"

Pros: "Service was fantastic. Had a bit of a headache and the air hostess was quick to get me a Panadol. Entertainment system is good. Do check out the outside camera that works when landing gear comes out. Great view. Great idea."

Pros: "Everything but the seat"
Cons: "Seat configuration is not worthy of CP business class. It’s the old 777-200, either retire the plane - that would be a shame, or upgrade the seats"

Cons: "I d have liked if they had served refreshments/drinks immediately after boarding. Although I had dinner, the flight is like 1AM so a light snack would be appreciated. toilet cleanliness was an issue...the toilets were out of toilet paper."

Pros: "Food great, smooth flight. Helpful stewardess. Fairly comfy seats"

Cons: "Worst flight experience ever-"

Pros: "Food better than qantas Good leg room Very attentive attendants Good range of movies"
Cons: "It was pretty good for the price"

Pros: "The overhead compartments are a good size. The staff was friendly. There was decent legroom in front of the seats. The food was more flavorful than most airlines."
Cons: "In Hong Kong there was an additional security checkpoint set up at the gate. I had to throw away all liquids I purchased. Usually, once you've cleared customs and security checkpoints you can buy food and liquids within the airport and board the flight. Not sure if this was an airport thing or an airline thing. Either way it was highly inconvenient and annoying"

Pros: "The crew was very friendly for a change"
Cons: "When an aerobridge is used, boarding should be sequential to avoid pile ups. First the last rows should be boarded, and then the start rows"

Pros: "The economy seats where comfortable even with a15 hours flight , food was great and warm.Crew were very helpful"
Cons: "None"

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"

Pros: "Small leg room, seat don't decline enough,"

Pros: "The crew is always polite and professional"
Cons: "I can't eat airplane food that is always Asian flavored....sometimes I just want a sandwich."

Cons: "Food was ok and was served very late"

Cons: "Should have more Indian movies on flight."

Pros: "Comfortable seats, clean toilets, great service"
Cons: "Entertainment system is a little bit outdated. Not as good as was on the other flight where you can search for movies by keyword."

Pros: "I will give 10 out of 10 to Cathay for their excellent service, fast air time, humble crew service and a bonus point for their quality of meals/ food. I am a pure vegetarian & in all my flight the crew made sure that I got the correct food tray & it was not mixed with wrong mean (non veg.) by mistake. Unlike other flight where meal is just an obligation, Cathay made sure that the taste was very nice too. Full points to them. The quality of seats was good & nice leg space as well. Overall the experiance was very pleasant & I highly recommend Cathay Pacific."

Pros: "hospitality is very good.comfortable journey."

Pros: "Speak in Hindi language with lndian passengers"

Pros: "I managed to miss my flight in Hong Kong (my mistake) and Cathay managed to get me onto the next flight. Thanks Cathay!"

Pros: "If you have diebitce don't fly on Cx no service it all"

Pros: "Good food served Crew behaviour was nice peace full journey very meet and clean ,captain of the flight was experence person smooth flying,"
Cons: "Toothbrush and paste was not issued to Evonomy class persons,Whisky served was not having good quality & quantity ,Only few Hindi movie Videio was available,may give more Hindi Videio,Tea served was not hot."

Pros: "More space between seats"
Cons: "Little to no vegetarian option"

Pros: "Love the plane, seats"
Cons: "Food has gone down"

Pros: "A350 is great."
Cons: "Service was not that great for business class a"

Pros: "Food was nice"
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable, something was dripping on me by the end of the flight, could have been condensation? The passenger behind me had his shoes off the entire flight and put his feet in the space beside me near the window. His feet smelt like vinegar and sweaty socks. The passenger beside me was overweight and he spilled into my seat partially. All of this did not make for a comfortable flight but thankfully it wasn't too long."

Cons: "My Son's water bottle was emptied despite my protests that nobody at any airport has ever done such a thing. The water had even been okayed by the Hongkong airport 1st security point after we landed in HKG from Delhi. But the there was additional checking of handluggage again just before boarding and they threw away my Son's water. This is unacceptable. Also the food was not up to quality. I got practically the same food in both meals."

Pros: "Airport cleanliness and free WiFi"
Cons: "Excellent cabine service"

Cons: "Blankets were very thin, although clean felt reused. Headphones were poor which meant if Someone in a near seat was talking couldn't hear through my headset despite volume being turned up."

Pros: "The service was outstanding, the food actually tasted good, and not "good for airline food," just good. The seats were comfortable; lots of entertainment options and boarding was run super efficiently. I'd fly this airline anytime."

Cons: "Economy's seats a bit tightly packed in. Food was kind of Asian based and no choices for snacks but the Asian type nuts/pretzels that tastes wired"

Pros: "-Staff were incredibly attentive and gracious at every step. Could not ask for more from them. The flight attendants were also really conscientious but also discrete about making sure that things were comfortable to passengers, for example making sure that windows were closed most of the time and lights were down so that people could sleep in between meals, and moving someone that was sick to a more comfortable and private seat, both for the sake of the sick individual and for the comfort of the people that had initially been sitting around them. -The complementary movie options were great and really helped pass the time on the 24+hr flight from NYC to Western Australia. -1 free large checked bag, which was very nice. -I think the complementary food and snacks were really yummy and generous, for airline food. I very much enjoyed the meals and snacks. Also, the complementary wine was a nice treat and tasted surprisingly good. -The complementary pillows and blankets were nice, warm, and soft. -The flights were on time, much better than American airlines that I've flown on. -The bathrooms were cleaned regularly throughout the flight and were much cleaner and nicer smelling than other airlines that I've been on."
Cons: "The only thing thing that could really be improved upon (which is not as much the airline's fault as the plane manufacturer's fault) is that the economy seats and cabin layout could be more comfortable for long flights. I understand how hard it must be to design a plane that fits that many people and that's comfortable for 24+hrs of flying, but a few improvements could relatively easily be made I think, which would improve the experience dramatically: -If the seats were softer (and perhaps more ergonomically designed with an average person's shape in mind) it would make a world of difference, I think. -Being able to put the arm up on the wall side of the window seat would make it much more comfortable. -Padding on the arms would also help. -Of course more leg space and wider seats would make a world of difference, but I know that is tough to do since space is limited."

Pros: "Very good service from the flight attendants. They are very polite and friendly."
Cons: "The food was not delicious."

Pros: "This was the cheapest direct flight to Hong Kong so I bought it. Alsonivam a qantas member so got the points. It was a day trip for me to go so I wanted to get some sleep both ways. I'm 188cm and the seats are just a little bit close together to let you stretch your legs but ok. Entertainment system is good and window seat was ok."
Cons: "Meals are terrible - soft mushy potatoes and scrambled eggs need a revamp, device is s bit chuck it at you. Flight out was 1.15 hours late but suited me other people were put out."

Pros: "The crew and the selection of movies"
Cons: "The food"

Cons: "They loose my luggage"

Pros: "Flight attendant were amazing. My wife was not well and we ask for blanket. Cabin crew provided us with one."
Cons: "In flight food selection should have some variety for three hours flight. Should significantly improve Sri Lanka Lounge as the place was not the neat and clean, as it was run by one staff alone. Food in the lounge were sitting for hours and not freshly made."

Pros: "The seats and Inflight entertainment was excellent."
Cons: "Crew ran out of food choices despite the fact that I was seated near the front of the aircraft. Crew came out for the first service and didn’t serve again for the rest of the flight."

Cons: "Flight was late and because of that we missed adelaide flight"

Pros: "Acceptable but not exceptional as expected"
Cons: "Unfortunately the it was a bumpy ride as most of the time the seat belt sign was on and crew had to discontinue services for a while. This was beyond airlines control. The crew did not distribute the Sri lankan landing cards onboard. This caused some confusions for first time travellers as they had to cone off the immigration queue and went to pick the card up and to complete. Some foreigners were unhappy about it."

Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The flight always leaves late from Dubai and from Colombo. Not to any fault of the airline, but screaming babies the entire flight on the way to Colombo was stressful."

Pros: "On time arrival. Personal entertainment system. Meal included. Everytging for a 3h flight. Amazing."

Pros: "The flight landed safely is by far the most that I liked. The service was okay."
Cons: "I paid for business class and it sucked. The seats would not recline enough for comfort and the entertainment had to be held in my hand. Totally unsat for the price that I paid for that business class seat."

Pros: "Overall service"
Cons: "I had to check in my cabin bag"

Cons: "The food was seriously too small in portion! Had to go hungry on a full service 14hr flight!"

Pros: "Being time conscious"

Pros: "We were lucky to get the last row where there are just 2 seats."
Cons: "Width and depth of seats - very small. I especially noticed the depth - very narrow. As usual bearly room between row in front. The food was very average. I ordered Asian vegetarian and got 3 meals almost identical. For dessert I also got a piece of melon and 2 cubes of pineapple 3 times. The bread roll was stale at best. Unfortunately on the long 13 hr leg we had a male staff member who wasn’t happy in his job and basically grunted at the passengers...He was also clearing the food trays and was very rough with it and I wore a container of somebody else’s custard all over me (luckily I had a blanket wrapped around Mel). He was more annoyed that zig also got the bottom of his trousers and shoes."

Cons: "Very limited food served at inappropriate times with no flexibility. No information provided on what meals would be served at what times. Very limited entertainment. Very long uncomfortable flight compounded by crew hawking duty free goods like vendors at a fish market, waking many of those who had been fortunate enough to fall asleep."

Pros: "Same food offered on both trips was a bit disappointing"

Cons: "Too much waiting in queues... Minimum of 2 hours of waiting, Too few counters."

Pros: "Overall very good The flight attendants were exceptionally professional. It went way beyond taken care of customers."
Cons: "Other customers on the flight were extremely rude, spread the dirty things all over the airplane! Need moreupdated movie selections."

Pros: "Great vegetarian food and good assortment of latest movies/tv shows."

Pros: "Multiple delays which was due to poor management on the airlines side"

Cons: "total commute time"

Pros: "Staff are friendly and helpful. Communication generally helpful. Flight comfortable other than for the food and seat cushioning. (see below) They handled our delayed connection brilliantly, putting us in a hotel in Abu Dhabi for the day. Very restful and handled very well."
Cons: "Food and comfort of seats. Pretty standard long-haul experience."

Pros: "What is there not to like? Service, comfort, on-time performance, food, entertainment"

Pros: "Preclerance system in Abu Dhabi"

Pros: "The plane was fantastic, although my experience is slightly more skewed towards a positive one given the flight was fairly empty and we were free to choose alternative seating after takeoff. The plane itself was fairly comfortable, a noticeable step up from budget lines, and the staff were an absolute dream. Very very friendly, never seemed put out and frequently checking on passengers. The difference of inflight entertainment technology was certainly VERY noticeable & I actually preferred it. Better, clearer, bigger screens. It just changes the experience for the passenger if we can be happily distracted."
Cons: "Really only the food. There was one meal which I didn't eat after tasting - it was just tasteless and not worth eating. A scone sandwich would have been more preferable. I still believe the standard of inflight food could be raised a notch or too, even if it was looking at a company like Pret A Manger and offering some nice sandwiches, fruit and soup, that would be more desirable and satisfying."

Pros: "The service was very efficient and warm. The food was tasty. The team was throughout helpful and prompt."

Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"

Pros: "Great storage bins, privacy in the window seats, comfortable lie-flat bed with good massage option. Short walk from Business Lounge to gate, priority boarding. Dine on command. Excellent"
Cons: "Not a great choice of new films."

Pros: "US pre clearance"
Cons: "Crew was very rude. Food was not good. Meals were served late. No adequate snacks on board"

Pros: "Is very nice is on time on everything ...."
Cons: "Everything is good"

Pros: "CREW SERVICE TIMELY NATURE OF FLIGHTS"
Cons: "THE LEG SPACE 1 OF THE MEALS"

Pros: "Just average flight, nothing so special"
Cons: "the flight was so overbooked that I had to stand in the queue for an hour for check-in, All the overhead compartments were full and I could not put a small bag in it, the crew even did not bother to help me with it. Ultimately I had to stow it beneath the seat. The seats were so cramped"

Pros: "For the price, its good, Entertainment system is really good, also its` good for the quick flight.Flight is always On time!"
Cons: "Staff is not super welcoming, looks like they are forced to serve the economy class, you get what you pay for, Also its super crowded."

Pros: "Cleaniness , food , entertainment"
Cons: "Air hostesses, my daughter asked 3 times for something . They kept saying will give and eventually no manners to come and reply also .. Asked for an extra bun for my 3 year old I was said will come back after the round but again no one came .. Never experienced this with any other flight .. Boarding also with kids was a little difficult when going by bus to the aircraft .. No priorities .. Only pushing .."

Pros: "Didnt make it. Neither did they give me an alternative to the flight."

Pros: "The A380 aircraft is an absolute delight to travel in. Makes the flight very comfortable."
Cons: "The crew was quite unfriendly and refused to provide any additional snacks or drinks after 1st service. Very limited food menu and very little in quantity."

Pros: "Good entertainment options although the screen/controller seem outdated and unresponsive. I would suggest not shutting off the entertainment while on the ground or too early (shut off an hour before landing)"
Cons: "My biggest complaint would be that we waited on the plane for over an hour and a half in Mumbai for late passengers. This caused a ripple effect which made us miss our arrival spot and have to wait an additional 30 min on the plane once we landed. You should never make 400+ people sit on an airplane for 2 additional hours (for a 3 hour flight) because a few passengers did not plan well and were late. That logic was insane to me and incredibly frustrating. That is my only complaint that would actually make me think twice about flying Etihad again. The crew seemed annoyed anytime I'd ask for water. A more western food option would be nice rather than just 3 options of rice and curries. Also the food timing did not line up well (eating fish at 9am)."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Touch genital no good food rude air hostess and staff"

Cons: "movie selection poor."

Pros: "Fast track through passport control and customs and quick boarding. The crew made the long flight relaxing and comfortable."
Cons: "Dinner was great but breakfast was not as good."

Pros: "Staff were great."
Cons: "They ran out of toilet paper 3/4 in. Disgusting."

Pros: "Chair was comfy"
Cons: "crew were unorganized & rude Videos were very old & not updated for long time at least 3 yrs old"

Pros: "Food , service"

Pros: "Food and upkeep of aircraft"
Cons: "Your association with Aer Lingus"

Pros: "Courtesy of crew, food and cleanliness"
Cons: "Good in all respect"

Cons: "Major delay in boarding. Then we had to stop at Mumbai for hours. No clear explanation was made. They didn't provide us wifi, we couldn't reach our families to let them know."

Pros: "Aircraft fleet and airport is good. Good infrastructure."
Cons: "The cabin crew is not at all courteous. When you start travelling in US, you realize how different the crew's attitude is. When you want to say no to the customer, atleast make an effort to accommodate the needs of the customer first. Minor requests made by the passengers should be accommodated. You just rudely say No. Learn something from American customer service!!"

Pros: "The flight was on time. The food was great, seating was comfortable. Crew members were very helpful."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Punctuality, No break fast"

Cons: "Bathroom floors were wet most of the time."

Cons: "Small plane and crowded and services was not good. I had to take two buses to get to the international terminal. I had to wait for a wheelchair for an hour."

Pros: "Chauffeur driven service"
