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?"

Cons: "EVERY FRIGHT WAS DELAY, AND LOST BAGGAGE, AND MY SUITCASE WAS BROKEN!!!!"

Pros: "Crew were very gracious and kind."
Cons: "Food not as good as before"

Pros: "Crew was super nice and the food was good (for plane food)! Really appreciated that they had snacks and chocolate on hand for hungry passengers throughout the flight. A 17 hour plane ride is never the best, but Singapore Air made it as pleasant as possible. Also, we booked on Kayak and was routed through a third party vendor JustFly, which I was a little worried about - but our booking went off without a hitch."

Pros: "I liked that on the longest leg of my trip - I had an entire row to myself to stretch out. Im old, things like that are important...along with compression socks...haha!"
Cons: "I think the food - I dont know exactly what, because we're on a plane - but I think it could be a bit more appealing? More greens, colors? Not sure, but it was okay."

Pros: "Crew was polite."
Cons: "For such a long journey, the plane could have been nicer."

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

Pros: "Handset to control screen didn’t work. Airline reimbursed me with $75 voucher for inflight duty-free shop."

Cons: "Aircrew took my carry on away while I was waiting to board saying it was too large; left me without the essential items I wanted during the 19.5 hours in the air and two plane changes. Other people were allowed to keep carry ons bigger than mine so I don't understand why they did this."

Pros: "The crew werr very helpful and patient and so many languages they knew. Impressive they need a raise"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable I slept 30 min at a time on my 14hr flight. The food is nice but a bit bland the first time its amazing but after more than 2 planes mix it up plz"

Pros: "The cabin crew was great."
Cons: "1. Flight seats are too congested on flight.. 2. Not too many indian movie choices 3. Some reason, while booking the flight, the KAYAK site had not asked for food choice. And the airline does not carry any extra vegetarian food. This had caused some inconvenience."

Cons: "Seats in economic class are not too contraint in space, food was good and entertainment system quite nice with large si play screen and large movie selection"

Pros: "The service from the Singapore Airlines is always impeccable. The food is delicious. The business class seat is spacious and wider than all the US airlines. There are plenty storage space in your seat space. The entertainment system has many choices and has a lot new release movies and shows."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the ride on Boeing 777 is not as smooth as the Airbus'. The noise in the cabin is louder. The seat is comfortable but the bed is not. First, the flat bed is not transformed by a button and it needs a physical person to flip it over. The mat is thin and I can feel some hard edges while lying down. The noise from the engine transmits to the bed and it is hard to sleep even with the noise cancellation headphone."

Pros: "Premium economy"

Pros: "Service and food"

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

Cons: "They reschudle my flight beaucase I have anxiety. It's my birthday today. I'm suppose to be in China celebrating me and my grandma's birthday right now. Apparently anxiety is something that Singapore airline are very concerned about me, that needs a doctor note to prove that I'm okey to fly. poor coummcation skill and power play"

Cons: "All good"

Pros: "Crew, plane, punctuality"

Pros: "Overall treatment of boarding & crew staff was courteous, friendly & helpful. Movies selections were great but I was too tired to watch."
Cons: "Food can be improved. Couldn't eat pork or shrimps, so wished they served either vegetarian or chicken noodles instead of pork or stuff with shrimps. Fish, chicken, beef, or vegetarian options are better options."

Pros: "Entertainment was awesome. Boarding was fast."
Cons: "Not enough food served (only two meals on a sixteen hour flight) and tasted okay. Crew was not all friendly."

Pros: "Delayed and no AC working..."

Pros: "The quickness at which they discovered my suitcase was missing even before I got to the luggage carousel and sent me text. The quickness at which my suitcase was found, put on another plane and returned to me the next day by noon to my home. There was nothing missing."
Cons: "That damage on my suitcase is not covered. Corner was torn 8 inches and a tear in the fabric. But it wasn't my expensive suitcase. It got caught on the carousel I sure because the paper identifying strips got caught somewhere."

Pros: "Good friendly service. Flights were on time."

Cons: "I was on a flight to Dallas on an American Airline flight which arrived late due to weather conditions, and the connecting flight didn't even wait for me although they know why I couldn't make it on time. And I was only late for about 5 minutes."

Cons: "I'm getting to Madrid 24 hrs after I was supposed to"

Pros: "while our flight was delayed, they kept us well-informed about what was happening and didn't leave us in the dark.

Real thoughtful dedication!"

Pros: "NOTHING"

Pros: "The entire fly, connections, food and both crews excelente. Flight on time."

Pros: "Airline and crew looked after us and kept us informed. My app said the flight was delayed but the captain didn't seem to know this so we sat for half an hour or more after planned departure. Maybe he hoped to get an earlier slot. We were 30 mins late in the end."
Cons: "No food for purchase, just a drink and biscuit."

Pros: "Good service, as efficient as possible"

Pros: "Headrest entertainment systems"
Cons: "Lack of comfort in the seat, pay for every little thing, departed late, 90% of all passengers seems to be lumped in "Group 6" making boarding extremely annoying. I suppose any other group costs extra."

Pros: "The comfortable sitting and good hospitality by staff. Timely departure and smooth landing of aircraft."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Na"

Cons: "It was delayed for about a half an hour. Other than that it was great"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "They charge for everything luggage they can see in the front desk. My 63 years old mother had her small size hand carrier, a travel tote on top (with her travel blanket and her medicine) and a crossbody passport size. They told her to put it in her tote!!! Only 2 items allows. ... In the plane she saw passengers carried way more than what that."

Pros: "Lots of free movies."
Cons: "No free food."

Cons: "it was really bumpy"

Cons: "I was told I had to check my duffle bag at the gate, that there was no room for it. When I dot to my dirty seat I found room for three of my bags in the overhead compartment."

Cons: "Pathetic airline service especially towards senior citizens.. One of the worst airline.. Poor baggage tracking system and Etihad staff lacks knowledge about their own airline.."

Cons: "no food, no entertainment, seemed like a pretty, seemed like an old plane judging from the interior"

Pros: "On time arrival despite two issues at the departure gate"

Pros: "The Good: The seat configuration available for an upcharge of $38 gave just enough additional room to make getting my frail elderly mother in and out of her seat and accessing items she needed from a bag stored under the seat ahead of me much easier and safer than it would have been in, say, the sardine can-like conditions of the coach section on United flights."
Cons: "The Bad: At boarding, American does not provide pre-boarding for those who need extra time. I was traveling with my elderly mother, who can walk (very) short distances but is quite frail. American was great about providing a wheelchair to the gate, but then we were on our own. Because there was no designated boarding for people needing extra time or assistance, I had to sharp elbow my way to the front of the post-first class boarders and talk folks into letting her through. Stressful for both of us."
