Pros: "Clean plane and comfortable seats."
Cons: "Complementary snack to go with free beverage."

Pros: "ANA flights are always well run and good enough."
Cons: "Their iphone applications could be smoother and more functional."

Pros: "The attentions to the passangers are much more friendly than the ones offered today by the american and european airlines, which are today getting more and more cold and unfriendly."
Cons: "The second food service."

Cons: "You could have given me a refund or credit for a flight I told you 3 months ago I had to change. I won’t use kayak again."

Pros: "Crew was amazing and very comfortable seat"
Cons: "Food can be better and Entertainment was poor There should be more choices available. WiFi was spotty only 150 MB was available after paying. It should be free in business class like other airlines"

Cons: "If flight wasn’t delayed."

Cons: "Movie catalog needs to be expanded"

Pros: "Never take it"

Pros: "Service Quality"
Cons: "Seat does not recline"

Pros: "Service was impeccable, as usual, from check-in to boarding. Crew was attentive and friendly."
Cons: "Cabin was too warm. Seems there is no way to adjust temperature /individual air flow on a 777-300."

Pros: "Crew were very hospitable"

Pros: "Zero"
Cons: "Asked specifically at the ticketing counter not to be seated in a non-emergency row. Were seated in an emergency row. For a 12 hour flight with seats that don't recline and nothing the on-board staff could do about the ticket counter's negligence and bad faith other than apologize. Seated upright for an overnight flight (for the second time on the same trip) for 12 hours. Not a pleasant experience. Had a feeling ANA would be bush league. This trip confirmed those suspicions. It wasn't the crew's fault (though they, unfortunately bore the brunt of my displeasure) so much as the counter's fault, but airlines charging what they are shouldn't be putting passengers or crew in this position. The ticket counter folks literally mislead us. They specifically told us that these were not emergency row seats and that we would have reclining seats and seatback displays in front of us like everyone else. The entire reason I asked is because we got stuck in the last row on the way in with seats that don't recline, which blows for a 12 hour red-eye flight. Instead we got seats that did not recline and a fold out screen that came from the right-hand arm rest. Not the end of the world if one had no choice, but certainly not what I paid for and certainly not what the ticketing counter people stated we were getting (under specific inquiry about the very point). The ticketing counter in particular seems to be skeevy, at best. To the detriment of their own crew, who is left apologizing for things they can do nothing about. As stated, this is a bush league international carrier. Avoid unless you love sleepless nights crossing the international dateline..."

Pros: "everything."

Pros: "Pleasant crew, good food. Standard flight as one would expect."

Cons: "The seats in economy are ok and not a good comfortable seat.. and needs improvement on food menu choices. But no problem boarding, the attendants are courteous and nice.."

Pros: "Been flying with ANA ever since I started living in Japan, and it has always been a pleasure. No complaints whatsoever."

Cons: "Food for vegetarians is not very good. But they certainly feed you a lot."

Pros: "The crew is attentive and kind, the promptness is the airline, they aren’t afraid to serve you top notch food and dessert"
Cons: "The only thing that soured my trip was on the way back, it was a passenger who was just way overboard disgusting. First of all he takes off his shoes and then his socks and crosses his legs so his barefoot is right next to my tray table. Then he proceeds to unbutton his pants and unbuckle his belt. Reaches down into his nethers and takes a good whiff of his hand. This passenger continually kept encroaching into my seat, either sitting on a portion of my leg or putting his shoulder over my shoulder, even at one point used me as lean on. It was a 9 hour flight of misery... I was definitely uncomfortable for majority of that flight due to the passenger in 40A on flight NH176"

Cons: "19 hours overlay in ORD. I had to check out all luggages again. Terrible."

Pros: "I like the way the stewardesses treating all passengers especially economy class- very professional , attentive to needs and service with great smile- overall wonderful experience and to think I had never heard of this airline prior to flying it for the first time was very impressionable for me"

Cons: "The Hollywood entertainment options were limited and not very interesting."

Pros: "Enjoyed the ANA service so much. The crew was so attentive and helpful. The floor was really wet under our seat and they got newspapers and blankets to keep our stuff dry and checked in on us several times. We felt very well taken care of. Enjoyed the documentaries on Japan and Okinawa!"
Cons: "We didn't know the meal schedule. We thought the half a sandwich at dinner time was dinner, but then a full meal came out a couple hours later. :) Nice surprise though!"

Cons: "The flight left late and it was extremely hot in the cabin. It was a good thing that our connecting flight was a couple of doors down or we would not have made it, we sat on the runway waiting for our turn"

Pros: "Staff was wonderful and pleasant. Food was good for plane food. Entertainment was enough to get us all the way there."
Cons: "Seats in economy are a little uncomfortable, but to be expected."

I show up for new departure time. Plane left six minutes earlier. First thanks for the bad information. Second thanks for not paging me. Third I don't care when the plane is supposed to leave. Just tell me what time to be at the gate so I can stand around after an international flight. Oh and if a flight attendee to squawk rudely at a paying customer when we do land, why I'd just have to ask myself AGAIN ... why do I fly United?"

Pros: "We loved the service, quality of food, entertainment, and cleanliness of Singapore Airlines flight!"
Cons: "Economy is still tightly packed with limited leg room considering the distance traveled."

Pros: "I reallyiked th service from the crew"
Cons: "I didn’t like the silk air mainly on my itinerary. It was an old flight with cloth on the back of the flights a bit torn. No entertainment in flight for silk air. That was a bad flight."

Pros: "Top notch service. Very comfortable in business class. Very attentive. Would definitely fly with them again."

Pros: "Brand new aircraft, excellent service and food"
Cons: "J class seat, 12A window. Top of my seat curled around my sides, which blocked vision thru 1.5 of the 3 windows I had access to. The enclosure also protuded into my left bicep when I had my elbow resting on the arm rest. Table on my right hand side was too close to my body, and to high to reach a drink easily, I literally had to lift my whole right arm to pick up a glass."

Pros: "Consistency of high quality service. Beef goulash in economy was surprisingly good!"
Cons: "Impatient Caucasian passengers trying to squeeze past. Maybe put them further back next time! :-)"

Pros: "Great service."
Cons: "Disinfectant smell."

Pros: "Very attentive and super awesome crew."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "It's not the cheapest way to fly but it's a great way to cross the Atlantic. Seats are big enough for 2, really. Lay flat beds make the night crossing east tolerable. You really can get several hours sleep. The cabin crew is outstanding, patient, and extremely responsive to requests. Two meals served were excellent. Entertainment choices were complete. After a number of flights in Economy on other airlines I'm spoiled by Singapore Airlines and also by Business Class. And their fares seemed much less than others for the JFK to FRA route. Had no idea this level of luxury existed on an airplane."
Cons: "My seat assignment was moved without explanation on our return flight, FRA to JFK. That was disappointing. The gate folks were apologetic but no real explanation given."

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

Pros: "Flight crew, food, boarding and entertainment great."
Cons: "Just didn't like the 7 hour delay for the flight. Nobody's fault."

Pros: "Very good service"
Cons: "Very poor entertainment. Upgrade options at the transfer desk not very clear and the staff present there not courteous"

Cons: "20 mins late boarding meant plane left 35 mins late although still arrived on time."

Pros: "Entertaiment"

Pros: "Again very friendly and efficient service ."

Pros: "Efficient courteous and attractive crew. Good food drink selection and great entertainment system."
Cons: "Unfortunately the plane was an older 777-200 with smaller TV screens but otherwise fine."

Pros: "Crew service"
Cons: "Very old entertainment system. Poor screen visibility. Cramped"

Pros: "The hot towels twice during the flight was great"
Cons: "Really just the food"

Pros: "The hot towels. The meals were good. The entertainment screen was great, and a great selection of movies and TV."

Cons: "I got the seat with communications box on the floor under the seat in front... no foot room :-("

Pros: "Staff were awesome. given that my wife and son both had food poisoning."

Pros: "Cabin crew are always great"
Cons: "Cabin fitout is getting tired and dated. Etihad leaves it for dead in first class"

Cons: "Extremely cramped flight in regular Economy."

Cons: "old facilities"

Pros: "The service is top notch. The food served is not matched by any other airlines I have traveled with. The flight attendants are always very very professional. I try to make sure to get Singapore Airlines when I travel to Asia."

Pros: "The flight experience was pretty great overall.."
Cons: "I didn't like that interacting with their websitewas not very iser friendly or reliable. While most domestic airlines allow you to easuly interact with your itinerary I pretty much had to just show up and hope everything worked out. Also no alerts or other functions."

Pros: "Thanks once again for a comfortable flight homs"

Pros: "Singapore air has amongst the best service out of all airlines."

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: "It was convenient"
Cons: "The seats were so hard I had to sit on a blanket and have a cushion behind. The entertainment was poor and the system was old."

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

Pros: "I loved the touch of luxury, even sitting in the economy , the hot towels, the good food , attractively prepared , the free wine and the courtesy of all the team. This was my third time flying with Singapore Airlines and I hope not the last time. The big plane flew so quietly, it was a wonderful flight."
Cons: "Like in all airplanes in economy the seats are too close , but when you cannot afford to fly differently it was okay, there was at least leg room."

Pros: "Friendly crew, excellent service. So far best economy class"
Cons: "Food can be better"

Pros: "no"
Cons: "respect"

Pros: "I had a cheap ticket and expected much less, but food was great, crew was creat, boarding was easy."
Cons: "The boarding was on small plane parked far away from the terminal and we had such a long bus ride I started to think "what is going on"..."

Pros: "All great experience!!!"

Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "The tv didn’t work throughout the whole flight. Very uncomfortable seats"

Cons: "Qatar Airways... Never to expect more"

Pros: "Excellent service on both flights. Truly a 5 star experience. Well done Qatar Airways."
Cons: "Nothing. Keep up the good work"

Pros: "Crew was superbly amazing which made flight enjoyable."

Pros: "Amazing crew. Great service in economy."

Pros: "I got a very good seat."
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. I lost $ buying, because custom in Doha had to take bottle. Its not right. Qatar custom could see in Belgrade and didn't tell me and the same in the Duty Free shop."

Pros: "Crew was OK."
Cons: "Seats in business class extremely uncomfortable, almost no recline. Very old entertainment equipment. Really disappointing flight given lack of comfort in business class."

Cons: "Need to improve wheel chair service at Doha."

Cons: "Food"

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

Pros: "Caring service, good pod seats on A350 and airy cabin."

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."

Pros: "Food was excellent. Service was excellent."
Cons: "Entertainment was limited."

Pros: "Plane was very empty so it allowed us to spread out."
Cons: "Cabin noise was loud. There was a high pitched whine throughout the whole trip."

Cons: "None"

Pros: "Hospitality and food."
Cons: "Seats are not comfortable."

Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "I was not given any option regarding the change of my departure flight from Colombo. Originally it was scheduled for 13th 3.25AM and it was brought forward to 12th night 20.20. This caused inconvenience to me and my family to wait 7 hours for the connecting flight to Johannesburg from Doha. When the flight is changed by airline for their convenience, they would have given preferential treatment to the passengers involved. We had to bare the cost of food and make us comfortable on our own due to the delay in transit."

Pros: "Incredibly attentive service"
Cons: "Internet service didn’t work. Also waiting for can refund because of unannounced 12 hour delay on the outbound flight."

Pros: "The friendly hosting of the crew and the clean and tidy of everything the food was delicious hot and cean"
Cons: "The alcoholic drinks on the craft had to be banned for sack of God"

Cons: "There's not food which was on menu I did not eat"

Pros: "Beautiful airplane with an incredibly hospitable staff. Food was delicious, seats were spacious and comfortable. Couldn’t ask for a better 14-hour flight!"

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"
Cons: "Delayed for 4.5 hours. Extremely bad customer service"

Pros: "Office staff was cooperative Overall flight was good"
Cons: "Ground crew was rude in behavior - not all but briefing counter staff"

Pros: "I received email telling me that my fright was delayed and showed the time they told me to be at KGL airport but when I showed the airline was already left because they was no delayed. I had to book another plane to return to US which cost me $1500. Here is the email Dear Mr Muvunyi Good morning This is to inform you that your flight from Kigali QR1378 is delayed due to operational reasons, please be at Kigali Airport for check in at 4PM and check-in will close at07PM. Best regards Jeanne D’arc Uwitije Reservations & Ticketing Supervisor Tel: (+250) 252553500"

Pros: "Felt like a new plane, with great service!"

Cons: "Leg space in economic class is too less. No options in vegetarian food. They don't give you what you want."

Pros: "I like the staff and the way they treat the passengers and foods too i like , was really good"
Cons: "I didn't like the comfortable part at the plane , it's not that good plane , the spoon ,& knife are not good , the chairs are not comfortable that much as the other planes of Qatar airways,"

Pros: "Seats are comfortable with plenty of leg space. Aircrafts were clean and tidy. Landing and take off were smoothest I have ever experienced."
Cons: "Menu choice was very basic and quantity was also poor. Food quality was below par in terms of taste and presentation. In-flight crew was inefficient and flow. Meal trays laid on meal tables for hours after the passengers finished food. Flight attendants literally responded in over 30 min of call. I pressed special meals online before boarding. However, the flight attendants were not sure. They went back to kitchen to verify that and return with the ordered meal."

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: "The flight was on time and boarding was fast"

Pros: "In general the crew was very nice."
Cons: "The dreamliner is a little tight in relation to the B777. The Kosher meals very all the same for breakfast lunch and snack"

Pros: "Crew, food."
Cons: "Lack of communication. Flight was two hours late from Boston to Doha. Not once were we told about the length of delay or what we need to do about connecting flights. And toilets were very smelly right from the start as it seemed that itinerary has seeped into the floor over time. And there were only two items as a main course and one of them in very small quantity. I was told that too many veg main courses were loaded by mistake and very few non veg."

Pros: "Helpful and frieendly"
Cons: "Counters should have opened earlier so we could have done aome ahopping at dfs"

Pros: "Everything was excellent as I have come to expect. The business class seat was not one of those new diagonal ones, but made a full width flat bed, so I could sleep for a few hours. Food and service excellent."

Pros: "Plane was perfect"
Cons: "Transit was just tedious very long line , had to wait for along time. The crew have very strong accent which makes difficult to understand them, but they are very nice and helpful"

Pros: "I liked the schedule was on time and smooth plane ride."
Cons: "I did not like the room in the plane. The seats where to close and u I couldn't sit back because person behind u would complain. Flight attendants did not really going around to see if we were good r needed drinks or even smiled they looked very upset and had some attitude when I did ask for something. Customer service needs more improvement."

Pros: "Good spacing. comfy seats."
Cons: "Staff were just not aware of clients needs. walked passed without even glancing to see raised hands, etc"

Pros: "Everything was good ... we were on time .. no delay so .. perfect !"

Pros: "Very comfortable, great staff, entertainment options were huge! New aircrafts with comfort in mind."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The first flight of my journey was delayed which made me late for my next two connecting flights. I arrived on vacation a day late. Paid for a hotel and activities that I never used. My bag arrived 5 days late. I had to buy clothes on a daily basis which ate up more time and fun money. The airline gave me nothing except empty promises and dismissive apologies."

Pros: "I was promised Wifi on all flights when I called customer service and I was frustrated I only had it on 2 out of the 4 flights ... And the connection was bad. I needed to work and planned on it after I heard the wifi was available for purchase."
Cons: "Did not like there was no wifi when I was told there was. The food was good and the service as well... It was comfortable !"

Pros: "Can i request for a food that us not pork? I don't eat pork nor shrimp, i will be traveling on the 5th of January again and i don't want that we will be starving again for the second time since last time we never eat for they don't have anything substitute for pork. Hope they will serve some chicken or beef for not everyone will eat pork and to starve while on the plane is not acceptable for we paid for it. Thanks"

Pros: "I loved the entire experience. This flight was my second trip with Cathay Pacific and I couldn’t be more satisfied. Seats were clean and comfortable. They had decent leg room and great range of motion. The entertainment center was simple but sleek. I loved the extensive movie library. Service was great."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed but the crew did keep us updated and was systematic in boarding"

Cons: "One of the lady flight attendant in the economy class seemed to be not in a good mood and was quite rude."

Cons: "not much choices in the movie selection"

Pros: "The crew were busy but very attentive"
Cons: "I could not plug in my headphones because of the proprietary plug on the airplane. I understand some airlines used to use proprietary plugs to keep people from taking their headphones that were offered complementary for the flight but I’d rather use my high end noise canceling headphones."

Pros: "Delay"
Cons: "Don't delay"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "everything"

Pros: "same as previous answer"
Cons: "same as previous answer"

Pros: "Good quality plane with good entertainment options. Staff were good but seemed stretched, perhaps not enough staff?"
Cons: "Plan was 2 hours late departing, my daughter also took this flight 6 weeks beforehand and had similar delays."

Pros: "Handing our menus in economy class was a nice touch. Service on board was very attentive."

Pros: "Crew was nice to direct you to where your seat is. Food was good."
Cons: "Snacks n drinks..water or soda offered after few hrs from dinner. Passengers should not ask for drinks or snack. I mean crackers or biscuits few hrs in mid flight. Even if passengers are mostly asleep, a crew member can walk down aisles with a tray of snacks. This will help some people wha mught not like the food or type 2 diabetic people who needs to eat n drink every 2 to 3 hrs. Signage on boarding gate is not clear. Your flight number and boarding time was in small projected sentences under a huge lettered former destination place."

Pros: "the airline provided good communication to customers regarding potential flight re-scheduling and check-in information. the service was good, with a selection of meals. the onboard flight entertainment was very easy to use and had a large range of contents to view. overall I will fly with Cathay again."

Pros: "On time. Got an isle seat."

Cons: "Indian food could be better"

Cons: "It was a long delay, about an hour. The airline kept silence until too late. They gave us a blanket, some refreshments and where to have breakfast. Those who made a fuss were taken to hotel. Many others stayed at the airport and had a terrible night."

Pros: "Not much to like particularly for this flight."
Cons: "The crew was a bit rough."

Pros: "Can't say anything was better or outstanding."
Cons: "Attitude of Crew Manager - Ms Jacky. She thought of me STUPID who did not know how to use touch screen of personal TV. My personal TV's touch screen wasn't working so I complaint to stewardess, who asked her manager, Ms Jacky to come, she resent the system which worked and then stopped again. I again complaint but by the time Ms Jacky came the system started working again so she said "I did not know how to use touch feature. I was touching it too hard."

Pros: "Leg room, food, airline staff"
Cons: "Too hot in the plane"

Cons: "Punctuality doesn’t seem to be a priority for Cathay Pacific or Cathay dragon"

Pros: "The staff was attentive to fixing the problem after it happened three times."
Cons: "TV monitor was broken and I could not use it for several hours"

Pros: "My flight delayed by 7 hrs. AC ground crews worked diligently to rearrange my connection flight to Halifax on the first flight out. And at the arrival gate in Toronto, AC already had a hotel package for me to stay overnight at Crowne Plaza Horel. Everything went so smoothly and professionally done. I am very impressed"

Pros: "onetime, efficient, well-managed"
Cons: "not very good food and not enough of it cramped"

Pros: "Overall speaking CX flights quality has been declining over recent years"

Pros: "Entertainment choices"
Cons: "The passenger I was seated next to was awful, but that has nothing to do with the airline. Food was kind of gross."

Pros: "Food was good Crew members were good Washroom were clean Smooth flight Comfortable seat"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"

Pros: "Flight attendants were responsive and helpful. They were also kind given the craziness they have to deal with in some customers. In flight entertainment was adequate. They seem quite reasonably organized."
Cons: "1. It was a 15+ hour flight. Only breakfast and lunch were served, where three are justified. 2. I had a pre-selected (vegetarian) meal which was both meagre and mediocre when flying out of JFK. It was a grossly insufficient amount of food for the long duration of the flight. I had what was essentially a small tray of chickpeas for 'breakfast'. Crazy! 3. The noodles that are on offer for snacks throughout the flight were chicken or beef. Vegetarians do not have anything to eat except cookies and some fruit (which goes quickly when set out!) 4. No eye mask, earplugs, toothbrush or toothpaste. These are basic amenities. Had to ask for an eye mask and then one was provided. Some airlines even provide in-flight socks (and yes, I am talking about economy travel here)."

Pros: "The crew was friendly and the flight was comfortable. There were two service representatives to take me on the golf cart from my gate in Terminal 1 when I landed to the bus departing from Terminal 2 to Terminal 4 where my connection was. It was unexpected, but saved a lot of stress based on the distance I had to travel within the airport to make the connecting flight."
Cons: "They recently moved the Cathay Pacific flights to the new Terminal 4 in Changi in Singapore. The connecting distance was significant to get from the Terminal 1 gate to the bus leaving from Terminal 2 to get to Terminal 4. Changi is usually VERY efficient, but this was a real inconvenience to not have direct transport from T1 to T4. Also, the lines for Cathay are not properly sorted by First/Business and all status frequent flyers. There were no ropes or anything organizing the queue, so there were well over 150 people lined up for the priority boarding with no clear queue. At that point, there is no priority. Time to get better organized."

Pros: "In flight service was excellent. Food was great. Good variety of entertainment options."
Cons: "The boarding process was a little confusing. Could not hear which rows were being called up and the line was really long."

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "The attitude of the staff was very good so also the service . Food was OK ; could be better within the cost parameters ."
Cons: "There wasn't enough choice of entertainment . The snacks offered were good but the refill of exhausted items was not there . Possibly this could be improved ."

Pros: "Whole experience was very good"
Cons: "Nothing"

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: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Entertainment touch screen did not work properly. Staff had yo reset it a few times but it still didn't recognise touch most of time which was frustrating. The screen should be chaned or repaired. It was cold on the plane Departure was delayed but we did not get explanation"

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

Pros: "DIrect flight to HK"
Cons: "The flight was freezing, blankets were worn and dirty, floor was dirty, seats were dirty, food was extremely basic."

Pros: "It was a packed flight and I had the window seat, but I remained seated the entire time.. The selection of entertainment was awesome.."
Cons: "the long flight.."

Pros: "I booked the flight at an excellent price. Service is always good."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the cheap price meant my husband and I couldn't sit together for the 15+ hour flight."

Pros: "The service was amazing & the attendants were so attentive and accommodating."
Cons: "No complaints, whatsoever."

Pros: "For the 15 hour flight from Hong Kong, they served two meals and put out snacks and drinks in the galleys in the interim. The dinner was pretty decent, and they gave a small bottle of water along with Hagen Daz ice cream. The seats reclined pretty well for economy class (the bottom of the seat shifted too, which was unexpected). Power outlets at every seat and an extensive entertainment system with movies from Eastern and Western culture."
Cons: "Breakfast was eggs and some nasty looking sausage, neither of which I ate."

Pros: "Great crew and nice food. Flight was a little quieter than previous which meant faster service and more space aboard."
Cons: "Nothing - it was a good flight."

Cons: "Food have to be more tasty"

Pros: "American pilots"

Pros: "Cabin crew always smiling and helping out"

Pros: "For the reasons stated above, we did not travel to Perth on Cathay Pacific. However, the Cathay Pacific staff were very helpful in organising our rescheduled flight with Air New Zealand."

Pros: "The crews on Cathay Pacific set the standard by which all airlines could learn. Experienced, professional, helpful and courteous. Gentle with the elderly, going the extra mile to make them comfortable. No bickering between flight attendants, they work as a team and made my first time experience flying into another country enjoyable."
Cons: "Most airline food is awful. It is what it is. The fruit appears to be frozen and just thawing making it a bit tasteless. However, it is better than most while traveling within the USA."

Cons: "Dinner choices could be better. Slow boarding process."

Pros: "I like the free check-bags"
Cons: "I like that if I can select the seats for free after booking ."

Pros: "Love qantas airways! Such a great and safe airline."

Pros: "Friendly crew and good service"
Cons: "Outdated seat and plane. No privacy in business class. Seat and biz class layout not competitive (2-2-2)"

Pros: "New screens new seats and very modern"
Cons: "Flight delay could’ve been shorter."

Cons: "Boarding wasn’t differentiated. Flight departure was delayed but they made up time en route."

Pros: "The service and entertainment provided"

Pros: "crew amazing seat to tight"
Cons: "wider seat"

Pros: "Great crew! Cheap flight"
Cons: "Food okay, flight delayed both ways, seating uncomfortable in economy."

Pros: "The plane was on time. There was cool air circulating from the moment we boarded The breakfast, which consisted of cereal, milk and a small muesli bar was good. Sky News was played on the drop down screen"
Cons: "The seats are cramped with very little arm room."

Pros: "Online check in"
Cons: "Boarding was slow and disorganised, food was cold and tasteless (chicken noodle) not helped that I had to wait for cutlery to be able to eat it"

Pros: "Food and comfort of the seat"
Cons: "The USB charger, the whole entertainment, anything on the remote including light control and bell, stopped working! I wasn't given enough attention, i had to chase the crew a few times, it was a 14 hour flight with nothing working, miserable experience. I was offered a window seat, which i hate, without considering to give me an upgrade. I was given 5,000 Qantas points, i don't know if they can be moved to my AVIOS."

Pros: "Nothing paid a bomb and got nothing for it"
Cons: "Everything!! Never again will I be hoodwinked for the price of a standard seat"

Cons: "The plane required the note book to view current movie but the note book has to have the app installed before take off. It was not properly draw my attention in advance via e-mail or text messages. For such a long flight, Qantas should have a better plane to server this route. Totally disappointed."

Pros: "Flight departed slightly late but arrived on time. Great movies to choose from. They gave you little kits that had a sleep mask, toothbrush and toothpaste, and ear plugs. The food and drinks available were good. There was a USB and outlet for charging."
Cons: "My husband’s screen didn’t work for watching movies and his seat did not recline, but mine did."

Cons: "This airport is disorganised and undersized for the volume of patrons passing through. Was frustrated with the poor response of Sydney airport go manage an obvious failure of their baggage handling system. No fallback procedure was activated(manual for eg) to actually progress baggsge hangling even for those with connections to make. Disappointed and embarrassed by the defensive attitudes of staff who were given no Support by mgt of either airport or airline."

Pros: "The plane was small, but it was my first time, so it was cool. The flight was quick and easy, and they covered my luggage even though it was too big for the plane overhead lockers."

Pros: "The plane was brand new, and the seats were very comfortable. They served food often, and the movie selection was perfect. Overall it was a good trip."
Cons: "They would not serve more than one alcohol drink at a time, so I had to get up often."

Cons: "The seat for leg was discomfort!"

Pros: "I liked the grilled chicken and the beef selection"
Cons: "The actual greens in both salads were weak; soft not crisp and cut in large chunks nose that were hard to handle and not flavorful."

Pros: "Excellent value for money, great food which is normally a no no for me, Charming and attentive cabin crew service, making a journey enjoyable !"

Pros: "Cabin crew were terrific. On board was also very good. Attentive and courteous."

Pros: "Qantas is a quality airline and provided us with better service than most USA airlines that we typically fly for about the same pricepoint. We were very impressed by the quality of service, the meal and entertainment offerings- it was a nice memory of how flying with USA airlines used to be in the good ol days. We flew economy so nothing special was added to our basic service."
Cons: "All was good, would fly them again should we need to travel their routes again. We flew 2 international flights and 4 domestic (within Australia) flights during our stay in Australia and had great experiences on all the flights."

Pros: "Fantastic Service On time Easy boarding"

Pros: "The salmon entree was top notch. Veggies cooked crisp too. Morning muffin was warm. All very yummy:) Wonderful smiling crew."
Cons: "The audio headphones had patchy reception. Needed to wiggle the wires."

Pros: "It was nearly impossible to get in or out of our seats when the chairs in front of us were reclined. When they are straight up it was no problem. Legroom was ample and the blankets and pillows were a nice touch."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delayed flight without any explanation. Unable to check in on phone. Checking into this flight at the airport took over 2 hours. Hated everything."

Cons: "Checking process could use some improvement; LAX check-in counter staff was NOT customer oriented; got the feeling that either they hate the job and had a bad day?"

Pros: "Good flight. Staff was excellent and attentive."

Cons: "The discomfort of modern economy flying just overwhelms any positives. Better seats with more room are needed."

Pros: "Good food. You"

Pros: "Everything."

Pros: "Dinner meal"
Cons: "Nil"

Pros: "Helpful crew. Seats so close together, very difficult tou get out to use facilities. Meals tasty."
Cons: "See last comment above."

Pros: "Friendly staff. Clean and tidy. Fast and reliable. Grand cup of tea too. Would recommend and would fly again. Different Safety demo got my attention."

Pros: "Impeccable service, food, and overall experience from the crew. It has always been a joy to fly Qantas, and I'm glad to see that is something that doesn't change."
Cons: "If you are going to travel with a little one, have the common decency to help your poor wife take care of them as well. You had three seats, the entire middle aisle, yet you decided to take the open seat next to me so they could lay down together. That was nice, I get it, sure. But if your baby is going to cry for hours (and hours, it was a 10.5 hour flight, that poor kid must have been exhausted), pause the movie for a minute, and maybe try to help. I don't mind being inconvenienced for the little ones, I'm a dad of 4 myself, I've traveled a lot and know how it goes. But jesus christ, she's your wife, that's your child, try taking care of them."

Pros: "Crew very friendly"
Cons: "Departure 50mins late, arrival 10mins late then wait 45mins for bags to arrive ... not good enough"

Pros: "The crew was helpful. Food was good. Really like the individual entertainment screens!"
Cons: "Sad because it was more crowded and we couldn't get by a window. On top of that, the sky cam must have been broken so we couldn't even watch from our screens. I won't travel on a Friday again. Would be nice to have a bit more leg room!"

Pros: "Big, safe plane. The pilot striving to land us close to the originally-scheduled time, even though we boarded the plane an hour late. He did it! A++ to Qantas for providing a spigot at the back of the plane to refill water bottles, thus lessening the amount of plastic used."
Cons: "I ordered vegetarian meals and they were TOO SPICY. Being served a flaming hot tomato curry and spicy potatoes for BREAKFAST was ridiculous."

Pros: "I was really looking forward to flying international on Qantas to NZ, only to find out the flight was actually on American Airlines instead. The plane was dirty, the seats crammed together, and the flight attendants seemed genuinely pissed off to have to serve the passengers. American just doesn't have the level of service or cleanliness for international flights. Avoid this airline if possible."

Cons: "You charged me twice in my credit card the Ticket from Adelaide -Melbourne and Melbourne-Sydney"

Pros: "2.5 hour flight - nothing too difficult they transferred our bags ok - nothing lost paid $C175 for my third bag - because we booked under QF code share. Wont do that again."
Cons: "ok flight"

Pros: "Direct flight to Brisbane. Cheerful crew doing their best with what they had to deal with."
Cons: "Late departure. Remote boarding gate to bus. Even more remote field from which plane departed. Overcrowded flight. Poor quality food. Access to Qantas Club denied (only for first class passengers)"

Pros: "Food is good and plenty Great entertainment selection Helpful crew"
Cons: "Seats are like most airlines, close tgether and not much leg room"

Pros: "Entertainment and crew was good"
Cons: "I've flown a lot over the years and been on some long flights but this was beyond bad as far as comfort. When the people in front of us layed their seats down we could not even move and when meals were served the flight attendants had to ask the passengers in front of us to please put their seats up so that they could serve us food. Then when the service was over the people layed their seats right down...they were literally in our laps."

Pros: "Landing with strong winds went well."
Cons: "No seat pillows"

Cons: "Late leaving and still pretending it was going to leave sooner than it did. It boarded 15 mins after the published delayed departure time. Staff wouldn't even call to find out when it would really leave. Lounge closed before the flight was called,"

Cons: "It's a long flight, so I get that the crew aren't necessarily in the cheeriest mood at all times. But it's a long flight for the passengers as well. Approaching one's duties with something more than stone-faced grimness would go a long way."

Pros: "Good meals, friendly service. Very comfortable"
Cons: "2 hour delay"

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and tried to make us as comfortable as possible in an old plane"
Cons: "The plane was clearly old. The leg room was horrible. I am 5'10" which is not super tall and my knees were jammed into the seat in front of me the entire flight. The entertainment was great, but the screen are so tiny and the picture quality was terrible. Comfort is huge on flights that long and it was not comfortable. I felt like $1600 should have gotten me a bit more."
