Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
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 were helpful and attended to any needs that we requested. As I am a big person the seat is never that comfortable but Singapore Airlines seating is more spacious than other companies I have flown with."
Cons: "The food was not too attractive, better variety of main meals"
Pros: "Excellent crew and very well dressed and always smiling"
Cons: "The lights were switched off for a very long time. That can be avoided"

Cons: "Food could be better"
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: "Satisfied and feel good on Singapore airlines, definitely will consider next trip"
Cons: "Ran out of options for dinner and could not eat the macaroni cheese they had on offer, so got 2 small packets of nuts instead...international flight running out of food options? Pretty slack. A part of the interior wall fell off onto my foot upon take off and I had to hold it in place for a while until a hostess came....doesn’t give you the best feeling when the plane starts breaking on take off. One of the male stewards was appalling towards a young mum I sat next too...too the extent of giving her dirty looks because she spilled a bit of water on the seat and then told her she had to pack everything away she was using, including the baby wipes! I stepped in and told him how this was not ok and all other staff members were helpful and he was making this Mum upset. He should not be working for such a people friendly reputable airline! Maybe Jetstar instead! Was appalled at the entire flight to be honest!"
Pros: "Food, service"
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: "Friendly and helpful crew. Efficient service and good boarding. Seemingly wider seats than the newer A350s."
Cons: "Positively ancient entertainment system with poor selection and bad visual quality. Ads pop up every time you go into another menu. If you're flying SIN->BNE I'd avoid the 7.20am departure, you'll get the old 777-200s rather than the A350s they run on other departures."
Pros: "Friendly crew I like that a lot. The diabetes food choice ecselent Thank you"
Cons: "The toilets were very dirty"
Pros: "Love the promptness of services, always with a smile!"

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: "Natalie is a friendly cheery diligent flight attendant who needs special mention. (Sigapore to Brusane fight 6.1.18)"

Pros: "Entertainment even in economy class was excellent -- tons of movies, games, etc. Cabin crew were friendly. Bathroom was very large."

Pros: "Like the food"
Cons: "Crew was very poor in responding to any requests. I am usually very quite and light on demands as i hardly hit call button on the seat to get any assistance, but during meal, I was asked about drink and I opted for Ginger ale. Crew said, she will get back to me and I did not hear from her for another 10 mins, then there was repeat serve of drinks and I was asked if i needed any thing and asked the same drink, but then I was asked to wait. After I had finished off my meal and ready to go to sleep, someone was bringing my drink out and I then respectfully say no to it as it was bit late after the meal and asked for water instead and did not like the look on the face of the crew member. I saw it happening with other passengers as well and was under the impression, the whole crew performance was pretty poor and SIA was not up to its high-standards as I always like to fly with them. I will look for different option next time"
Pros: "Crews are truly nice and patient"
Cons: "Crews are very nice, food are not really good"
Cons: "The seats and entertainment system on our flight were in need of an upgrade. The seat padding was well worn and uncomfortable. The entertainment system is one of the old “pop-out the remote from the armrest” ones with a very average interface and display."
Pros: "Helpful staff and a comfortable trip. A plus all the way around"
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.

Cons: "the number of movies is a little bit less. the category of videos is not clear."

Too many hours in the dark. Then land when night time. More darkness. With flight and wait till sun rise it's like 26 hours of darkness."

Pros: "Friendliness and courtesy of crew, modern plane and good food. Well definitively fly EVA more!"

Pros: "terrible boarding crew"
Pros: "Seat, service and food were excellent"
Cons: "No negatives on this flight"
Pros: "Seats were nice and plane was clean"

Pros: "The crew was good."
Cons: "Crying baby....ughh."
Pros: "I like that you could watch TV, movies, or listen to music."
Cons: "When we arrived to SFO the flight was delayed for mechanical issues. When they couldn't fix the plane they had to fly another one from the Island to get us. This resulted in over a 14 hour delay and ruining our plans for our first day. The wing in SFO was all under construction so if you wanted to get anything you had to leave security and go back through it over and over."
Pros: "Room for my tennis racket on the side"
Cons: "It was all good"
Cons: "My surfboard bag was ripped and all straps were broken and was then patched up with duct tape!!! What the F#€*?!! It looked like it fell off the plane and was run over. Plus my bike box was torn to bits and patched with duct tape and was cut open by someone’s knife, I ended up loosing bike parts because of this. Horrible bag handling by the crew!! This was all noticed when I picked up my bags in Auckland"
Cons: "No free blanket. No free entertainment."
Cons: "Waiting for baggage at the baggage claim."
Pros: "I drink a lot of water and more so on flights. They weren’t apprehensive about serving me more than one glass of water/drinks (a problem i have had with other airlines)"

Cons: "Turkey sandwich"
Cons: "No food option for more restrictive diets."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "Expensive movie options"
Pros: "Nice crew, comfortable seat, good temperature."
Cons: "Appreciated the complimentary sandwich but since I am vegetarian had to pull the meat out and basically eat a cheese sandwich. Poor selection of "free" movies - just ended up reading."
Cons: "When I checked in i asked the agent to help me board early since I was carrying a fragile musical instrument. She said check back later. I had no seat assigned and was told I would be seated after all families were taken care of. I waited and waited and finally when everyone was boarded, I checked one last time because I was the only person left in the waiting area and the gate agent totally forgot about me. So she assigned me to a seat that had a wall in front of it and no storage space in the seat in front of me. I was livid. Thankfully I didn’t have to check the instrument but the hassle was a nightmare I really wanted to avoid."
Pros: "Boarding didn’t take too long and seats were comfortable."
Cons: "WiFi on plane would be awesome!"
Pros: "I am so happy you sent a survey! I have been wanting to sen a compliment to the women that was at the gate counter the day of my flight 11/30/17 flt 41. I watched her handle multiple difficult situations. In a severely stressful moment insane her handle with such grace and professionalism. She deserves a personal pat on the back and a raise:)"
Cons: "Customer service"
Pros: "The free run punch and chips they serve right before landing."
Cons: "Reserved seats and they were not honored. Instead we were stuck in the next to last row. Agents were unapologetic and did not care."
Pros: "Let me think, food was free. Some of the staff was friendly. Glad was the flight was quick, because I don't think I could deal with that staff anymore than the few interactions I had with them."
Cons: "Lets start with the boarding process. Its not organized and just a huge mess. This zone boarding thing is very old school and no where is there a screen saying which zone is boarding, you have to listen for the quiet announcement and hope you heard it correctly, because they only say it once. When on board, the staff I dealt with was having a bad day or something, because slamming drinks down on tray tables and cups in to a half full cup must be the norm. The passenger next to me mentioned that the staff was very rude to me, as I was pretty passive at the time. The seats are somewhat comfortable, but when the staff tells you not to lean back because the lady behind you doesn't have enough leg room, then whats the point of paying for comfort plus. The food may be free, but if you want some sort of entertainment, TV shows or movies, it isn't free. Everything must be paid for on this flight. You pay a pretty penny to get on these flights only for them to up-sell you on everything! This airline needs some major changes to staff and technology."
Pros: "Ontime , friendly , comfortable, they really do take care of you"
Pros: "Good price, food and drink free, cocktail prior to landing in Oahu, accommodate to have two seats together"

Cons: "Stood in line for 2 hours at Honolulu Airport to drop off bags. We had to be pulled out of the line as our flight was boarding and had to run to the gate. There was no time to eat or anything else. The flight attendants are not helpful nor do they smile much. I asked for something minor on two of the Hawaiian Airlines flight legs on my trip and was told they would come to my seat to see me. (One was for an extra blanket as I had cold air blowing on me and the other was to take my rubbish) They never did. I have never encountered this with any Airline before."
Pros: "Love the preloaded Ipads in first class. Not sure what entertainment was in coach."

Cons: "Food can be improved a lot"
Pros: "Pleased that the flight departed on time and arrived 50 minutes early. Sad that waiting for my luggage frittered away the time we gained by arriving early."
Cons: "Having your bags tagged as “priority “ really doesn’t mean anything. Watched nearly two flights’ luggage go by on the carousel before mine came out.

Offered to rebook 10hr later with 40 HK food credit. Happened to my uncle and cousins 1 month earlier on exact same legs.

Pros: "Brand new A350-900 airplane. Better movie selection. Nicer bathrooms."
Cons: "No more advanced seat selection except for an additional $180. No more serving wine and beer with dinner although I think its still available on request. A lot more screaming kids on the flight. Cathay is becoming more like the budget Chinese airlines. Sad."
Pros: "Most of the stuff was regular flights"

One hour before our boarding I come to find out that our gate was in a whole other terminal, we almost missed our flight. We would have missed it if I didnt as the ticket counter when is the Seattle flight going to go up on the screen. Poor communication on Alaska airlines part. Not very happy with that I had to rush to the other terminal because I had the wrong information on my boarding pass."

Cons: "For the first time in thirteen years traveling with my guitar, I was forced to check in my guitar, potentially in violation of the US Department of Transportation's rule on musical instruments. While my guitar thankfully arrived in good condition, this caused an unnecessary amount of stress in my 24 total hours of travel. I'd highly advise Cathay Pacific to revise their inflexible stance towards musical instruments, as many passengers brought carry-on bags which were much larger than my guitar in its case."
