Pros: "The staff was amazing"

Pros: "The help desk employees who helped me rebook my flight."
Cons: "After rushing to catch my connecting Singapore flight, their desks were closed and there wasn’t an employee in site. Given that airlines can see connecting fights it would have been great to have someone stay back to either give me a boarding pass or help me rebook! UNSATISFACTORY!"

Cons: "The person next to me had a distinct body odor."

Pros: "Always love the SIA business product on long haul."
Cons: "This trip had a lot of minor service and cleanliness misses. But they are quibbles in the scheme of the overall great product."

Cons: "Great Airline. Great staff and service. Good food and drink."

Pros: "Everything, perfect flight"

Pros: "The crew was amazing. The seat were uncomfortable"

Cons: "Food could have been better."

Pros: "The crews on board were amazing!"
Cons: "The service from the ground staffs are not as good a the crews onboard."

Cons: "without any possibility to call back. or to call again while being late, when arrived with plenty of time before departure. nobody was on the gate. when tryed to do all myself whithin minutes tsa didnt bother to speedup process and it took forever. i missed my flight literally in seconds."

Pros: "Boarding. Timely departure"
Cons: "Entertainment selection."

Pros: "Service was excellent, always with a smile."

Pros: "excellent - comfy plane, great service, excellent stuff."

Pros: "The food was good, good choices and at good intervals. Lavatories were well maintained. Entertainment was excellent."
Cons: "My first leg, the crew appeared rushed. Seating was tight. Would definitely upgrade next time."

Pros: "Everything else"
Cons: "Food was less than marginal"

Pros: "The service was excellent start to finish. I found the movie selection to be excellent on the plane and the food was tasty and above average for airline food, and the seats were comfortable."

Pros: "Space in economy seat was good. Huge selection of movies. Food was tasty. On flights to Frankfurt, Singapore Airlines may want to keep more sparkling water in stock, as Europeans prefer this to still water."
Cons: "There was a smell in the plane when I first arrived like vomit. It may have been the cleaning supplies."

Pros: "The crew was very nice and professional and the amenities were top notch."
Cons: "There wasn't enough leg room. My knees touched the chair in front of me the whole time."

Pros: "The trip was horrible we have to sit separately three places."

Pros: "Very organized"
Cons: "Seats could be a bit more comfortable in premium economy"

Pros: "What can I say about a flight of this length? Its always an epic journey to go from the US to Asia. However I will say that with Singapore Airlines things are a lot easier. Excellent crew who were always willing to help with my fondness for a beer. Food was as expected and up to the standard of Singapore Airlines. All round it was a long trip made a lot easier......5 stars."

Pros: "Singapore airline crew is always top notch in terms of service and attentiveness. It's a direct flight from Singapore to Canberra! Beats the layover in Sydney or Melbourne."
Cons: "Business class seats were uncomfortable compared to other business class. They're not lay flat seats, and I can't get the seat even close to flat because my feet jam in to the bottom of the seat in front of me. The food wasn't great, some of the meal which was supposed to be served hot was still cold."

Pros: "I was inpressed"

Pros: "The flight attendants were amazing."

Pros: "Amazing, amazing service! Great food (including Hagen Daaz ice cream) and good choice of beverages. Lots of different entertainment choices. VERY clean and well maintained aircraft. Staff is always friendly and happy...they really seem to absolutely love their job! Free toiletries in the bathrooms are an extra plus. Whenever there was a change in schedule / plans the captain informed the passengers immediately about what was going on and what would happen next."
Cons: "The only thing that did and probably always will be AWFUL is going thru security at JFK. The T S A officials there are unfriendly, sometimes rude, never smiling and often yelling at you or even little kids or elderly people. We are travelling a lot and no other security staff at any given airport is so unfriendly and harsh. Worst thing about going on a journey."

Cons: "Headphones didn’t work entirely for listening to movies. Had to manually hold it in."

Pros: "There was nothing to complain about..a very friendly staff, departure on time !"
Cons: "No newspapers and magazines on board !"

Pros: "The ground staff at JFK, especially Jon, were very helpful and friendly. The flight crew was also very friendly."

Pros: "The crew of ladies and men where so very gracious and courtly, both to the passengers and each other. My wife and I both took note that the flight attendants were "First Class" with emphasis on class. Exceptionally well groomed, but also conveyed genuine concern and helpfulness and at the same time, real workers, energetic and perky. We are bragging to all our friends about the uplifting cultural demeanor of Singapore Airlines. They should all get a pay raise. I will always remember their wonderful service when thinking about our trip to Frankfurt, Germany. Robert"

Pros: "Service from Singapore airlines"

Pros: "Comfort Great book the cook meal choices Restful Attentive service"
Cons: "What’s there not to like about SQ"

Pros: "Liked almost everything: newspapers, menu card, mini-toiletries bag, hot towel, food choice, ice cream, entertainment options, head sets provided (better quality than US airlines), lavatories kept clean and with less waiting time, number and friendliness of flight staff."
Cons: "What I did not like: Boarding was slower than expected. Large plane = longer boarding time."

Pros: "Efficient boarding and arrival"
Cons: "Old plane, entertainment system is outdated, food not good and they went out of the good stuff (e.g. only seafood noodles for breakfast?!)"

Pros: "Crew was great. Food not bad for airline food . It was clean."

Pros: "The service, seats, food, drinks and bed!"

Cons: "breakfast was terrible"

Pros: "they even addressed me by name"

Pros: "Everything was outstanding. The cleanliness of the airplane, the food, the friendliness of the crew, I just can't say enough good things about my experience flying on Singapore Airlines."

Pros: "FOOD, ADVANCE SEATING & JETWAY TO UPPER DECK"
Cons: "SMALL SPACE FOR FEET IN BUS. CLASS AND HEAD REST NOT THE MOST COMFORTABLE"

Pros: "The food wss delicious which was surprising. The lamb stew with fresh peas was delicious, and I don't even like peas!"
Cons: "Th entertainment system was old and tiny. Think watching VHS video tapes on a five inch screen. I think my phone screen was wider."

Pros: "The choices for entertainment were excellent! I was never bored for a second on my 20++ hours of flight. I love how they gave us in-ear earphones instead of the normal airline headphones that keep on sliding off."
Cons: "It was quite difficult for me to get comfortable. Maybe it's due to my shortness, I can't really rest my head that well"

Pros: "My luggage was lost, due to an error of another airline. but singapore air took care of it and made sure i got the luggage in Germany - even though it involved bringing it to me to remote location 2.5 hour drive from frankfurt. free of charge. Thanks Singapore airlines!"

Pros: "Arrival in Canberra was excellent."
Cons: "Horrendously uncomfortable business-class seat for a redeye flight."

Pros: "From the beginning until the end the service, the vibe, the flight itself was amazing. I don't know any other airline I flew with so far that hosted me and all other flyers better. At any time I was supported by the staff and even if it was busy they constantly had a kindness and smile in their face. I don't fly with any other airline on long distance flights! It was clean and neat on top at any time. I love flying with Singapore airlines. I feel safe and in good hands all around. This is how service should be at any airline! It is never less good but a constant since years! Thank you"
Cons: "There is nothing I did not like."

Pros: "Fast boarding and crew"
Cons: "Food was terrible even for plane food was unacceptable the headphones jacks are all half way working u have to wiggle the end to make it work the chairs are very stiff and uncomfortable next time looking for another airline"

Pros: "The checkin was straight forward. The staff were very pleasant as always. The entertainment system worked."
Cons: "It was an 8 our overnight flight to another time zone where we had a full day ahead of us so we needed all the sleep we could get but instead we were fed around midnight. Lights went out for about two hours, it seemed, before we were told to put our chairs upright for the person behind us so they could serve another meal. We arrived about 10am completely shattered."

Pros: "On my flight back I got to sit in premier economy and that was amazing !! I want to fly like that all the time! The leg room and space was perfect. The comfort of the chairs recline and foot rest that raised up was great. The big tray table that tucked away was nice. And side pockets for your stuff was great. The comfort of the bigger seats was just excellent and they looked newer. On my flight back from Frankfurt to NYC that was the best flight I ever have taken."
Cons: "The only thing was the food wasn't the best. But I did have Ice cream and that was good. The rice was good and beverages was good. The rest wasn't the best."

Pros: "Had to get new boarding passes at JFK eventhough issued passes at Rochester without gate numbers but was then able to check that my bags were transferred to SIA."
Cons: "I could not select a seat on JetBlue. Indian vegetarian food was mainly rice and potaoes and bread, not much protein like paneer or egg for the non-vegans like me."

Pros: "Everything was amazing. Best flight I've ever been on!"

Cons: "I got pulled aside and delayed my boarding because someone wanted to switch my seat. WHY do I have to be delayed for this? I felt it was very poor customer service. I. You can just print a list and ask at the aircraft's entrance."

Pros: "On time. Very efficient staff. More of this please!"
Cons: "Not a lot!"

Pros: "The tv size, charging station, foot hammock"

Pros: "The crew were really good, kept us informed about the delays and what was happening, and they all remained upbeat and chatty"

Pros: "It got me from b to c"
Cons: "Significantly delayed hoarding for non technical reasons. Food was decidedly average. Seat pitch is just tolerable."

Cons: "I told Nicole that my sound wasn’t working and I had tried with 3 different headsets. She just shrugged her shoulders and walked away. Not good enough for the price you pay for Qantas. I travel with qantas all the time and have never received service like this."

Pros: "Quality of interior"
Cons: "Food"

Cons: "Not being able to web check in causes stress pre-flight."

Cons: "See above"

Pros: "Snacks provided were very nice. Flight was shorter than expected."
Cons: "Nothing we didn't like, all was good!"

Pros: "Upon confirming my flight I had received a middle seat. When I got to Sydney I was able to talk a host at the gate to see if she can move to an aisle seat. She did and it was at the front of the row with plenty of leg room. I couldn’t have asked for a better flight home."
Cons: "The mess other passengers made. Have some respect for yourself and the stewardess. I could only imagine the home some of these people Live in."

Cons: "entertainment screen on the back of the headrest was smaller than an ipad screen"

Cons: "Unnecessary delays"

Pros: "Great service on the flight."
Cons: "The boarding process with qantas at JFK is chaotic. No one is policed on their seat numbers, status or fare class. this creates a chaotic process for boarding and securing overhead luggage space for higher fare paying customers Very bad lounge at JFK if used to first lounges like Cathay and JAL"

Pros: "The airline cares about every passenger from the departure terminal thru the flight and even at the destination terminal for a layover. You feel they care about you as a passenger, even tho we sat in economy,"
Cons: "Could not think of a single thing."

Pros: "The crew were very polite and helpful given the stressful circumstances."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. One staff member trying to deal with a full flight of delayed and tired passengers. Given the delay out of NY (due to weather) connecting flight to melbourne was missed. Not happy that I was put on a flight to Sydney instead. Entertainment system is dated. Personal headphones don’t plug in and the interface was unresponsive. Expected better from qantas."

Cons: "Rigid with assigned infant seats. Would not move us to bassinet bulk head area though we would pay for it. Flight went well regardless."

Pros: "Flight was on time. Complimentary wine is always a plus for Qantas"
Cons: "Evening flight snacks may be hip - but they're hardly edible!"

Pros: "Attentive staff with great food. Only issue is seats in economy are a bit cramped."

Cons: "Food."

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

Pros: "Great service. Perfect flight"
Cons: "Entertainment system was not working at my seat"

Pros: "We were late arriving due to roadworks at the entrance to the airport leading us miles out of our way due to poor signage Baggage had closed and the Qantas staff were excellent in ensuring that we caught the flight .Well done !"

Pros: "Everything was great about these flights, food and service included. We had a slight delay on our return flights but were updated along the way. Definitely recommend!"

Pros: "I arrived in Melbourne 9 hours after I was scheduled to. The flight was severely delayed out of NYC and then I missed my connection out of LA and flew to Sydney instead. I was offered a $20 voucher for food at jfk, and that was it."
Cons: "See above"

Cons: "1. Flight 12 left 2 hours late from New York 2. Flight left 21/2 hours late from Los Angles 3. We asked to be seated on the tiles , as we are seniors we needed to get up regularly during the night (16 hour flight during the night) We were seated window and middle seats. The person on the aile was had a broken knee and was wheel- chaired on to the plane. As a result we could not get up to go to the bathroom. 4. Because we left late from Los Angles , we missed our connecting flight on to Auckland. Qantas was kind enough to apologise, put us on another flight and gave us vouchers worth a grand total of $10. 5. We then arrived 2 hours late in Auckland, where we missed our connecting flight to Wellington. 6. Our 2 bags that were checked-in at New York are still missing. This is being written 4 days left New York. 7. WE have since had to purchase new winter clothes."

Cons: "Those with special meals receive their food way earlier than the rest of the plane."

Pros: "Entertainment Is always good"
Cons: "The five hour delay. Would have appreciated a phone call so I didn't have to get to the airport so soon. Food used to be so much better"

Pros: "Staff was courteous and the in flight food was good"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1 and a half hours to start with. Although the entertainment system on the plane is very good, half way through the flight it started having issues. Movies stopped playing and then the whole system locked up. First it was just individual seats that had problems but eventually the entire plane was unable to view anything. Even a complete reboot did not help. We spent the last 6hrs of the flight unable to view anything even though they repeatedly tried to reset the system"

Pros: "Food was amazing as was the crew"
Cons: "Seats get stuck and difficult to maneuver to the upright position."

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

Pros: "Paying for extra leg room was the best investment. We felt like we were in business class (although haven't ever travelled it). The crew were sensational, obliging, friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "We had to collect our luggage in Los Angeles and then re-lodge it for the New York leg of our flights. It was a nuisance but Qantas staff did everything in their power to make it as smooth as possible."
