Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Flexible seating due to only very few passengers. On time departure and arrival"
Pros: "Crew very attentive but not intrusive. Food very good."
Cons: "I did not find much to watch on entertainment system. Have to get crew to assemble flat bed, a bit of a nuisance. Also to turn it back into a chair."
Cons: "Having boarded at SYD, during the Canberra stop, we were all required to disembarked. It was a loaded flight so the process was slow"
Pros: "The staff was amazing"
Cons: "The person next to me had a distinct body odor."
Pros: "Crew will try there best to help you in anyway"
Cons: "Missed my connection so lost bags . Took 2 days for them to get to me."
Pros: "crew were very friendly and helpful. flight was one of the best i’ve had"
Cons: "boarding at sydney was very confusing"
Pros: "everything..Singapore airlines is a amazing airline !!! there is a reason why they are no 1 for so many years..."
Pros: "Crew were very good. Cabin was also much better than Qantas premium economy cabin."
Cons: "Had premium economy seat. Not the most comfortable on the tailbone for some reason."
Pros: "The crew was great as usual. The food was good"
Cons: "Better seats - really uncomfortable with a packed plane and wailing infants even when seated quite a few rows away."
Pros: "Generally good Flight was operated by Silk Air"
Cons: "Entertainment score is not meaningful because of the short flight time."
Pros: "The flight attendants are very attractive and attentive. They do make an effort to make one’s trip pleasurable."
Cons: "Need to update the planes.."
Pros: "Seats are big as old plane"
Cons: "Very old plane, entertainment system therefore very old too. Service was slow, 2 hours after start till they serve dinner, another 1 hour to clear. No special boarding for staralliance gold members"
Pros: "(Previous PE comparisons: Turkish AL, Air NZ, SAS) Ease of check-in, on-time dep/arr, crew attention and responsiveness, seating within the range to be expected of this class."
Cons: "Plane condition: Cosmetic plastic panel below monitor and seat back pocket on Seat 31E fell off when foot rest was lowered; had previously been secured by adhesive tape. Panel removed by crew. In-flight entertainment system: Persistent intermittent loss of sound while listening to movie or TV program. Food: Tried to use "Book the Cook" feature touted by Singapore's website. Was unable to get on site for that purpose. The last try a message appeared (late September) that site was being "rebuilt." On the flight, there was no menu of choices; we were offered 3 vaguely worded choices which boiled down to beef, chicken or vegetables. Those appeared in not particularly appetizing forms and combinations--P.S., we like east and southeast Asian cooking and had just spent 3 weeks in Japan. Failure to provide information about possible delays due to WRG deplaning location at LAX: Although we are frequent fliers to and from LAX, we'd never heard of the WRG. It would have been helpful if the crew had informed us upon arrival that there could possibly be a wait on the plane as buses were used to transport us approximately 1/2 mile to TBIT. Generally: We chose Singapore because of its reputation for excellence. Belying the name of the class, both Turkish AL and Air NZ treated Premium Economy passengers as "junior" business class. Singapore treated us as coach with a roomier cabin and seating pitch."
Pros: "I do like Singapore airlines and all the rest of the airline stuff apart from the entertainment system was great!!! (Unfortunately since there was no USB or seat power my iPad fairly quickly ran out of juice...)"
Cons: "The entertainment system was soooo old. In our seats it was non-functional. The plane wasn't too full and so I scooted over to the isle seat next to mine but again the resolution on the screen was so bad I couldn't read the intro comments to the movie, etc. They desperately need to update the entertainment system on that plane."
Pros: "The lunch and dinner menu was excellent"
Cons: "more bathrooms."
Pros: "Punctual flight with friendly crew."
Pros: "crew very helpful with seating service on board also good"
Cons: "head phones for entertainment very uncomfortable Food not to my taste"
Pros: "The crew and the little things like blanket, pillow, hot towels etc that is just standard. The food was great except the bread rolls Entertainment system was fantastic"
Cons: "They seemed to miss a whole section with immigration cards which delayed my party of travellers when we landed. The recline of the seat is huge, great for those wo recline, not so great for the person behind them"
Cons: "Poor service."
Cons: "Some staff not courteous which surprised me"
Pros: "Great experience"
Cons: "Seating arrangement was bad"
Pros: "SQ did a great job again. I plan to fly them in the future."
Cons: "My only criticism is that the flight attendants didn’t pass through the cabin with water during the 9 hour flight."
Pros: "I'm starting to sound like a fan boy but Singapore airlines masks this look easy. Comfortable seat great entertainment, edible food and wonderful in for service team. What's not to like"
Cons: "Had to drive to Huston. Can we get rid of BA and American and just have Singapore handle the flights at DFW?"
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: "crews were helpful"
Cons: "nobody suggested me about $20 discount coupon card . I could have enjoyed my meal free while waiting in teansit."
Pros: "Even though the flight was just 45 mins, the crew were able to pop out a beverages round"
Cons: "Nothing to mention, all was good"
Pros: "The cabin crew are very helpful and friendly. I sat at the end of the row in the upper deck. After the gate door closed , they let me sit in the empty sit away from the toilets . During the flight they’re around with water and juices to make sure we’re dehydrated,"
Cons: "The cabin was quite warm"
Pros: "Prem econ very good. Crew very friendly."
Pros: "Food was delicious!"
Pros: "smooth service with refreshments"
Cons: "No working seat audio"
Pros: "Everything great personnel"
Cons: "Food was. Not available. They said they don't have extra veg food . I selected beg food still it shows them non veg and I was pass my way with empty stomach"
Pros: "Love the service at Singapore Air. Very attentive and accommodating."
Cons: "Security at Frankfurt airport was horribly slow. Also, audio jack didn't work properly. Not sure how often that's checked."
Pros: "Such incredible staff. Always Willing to go above and beyond! I flew 17 hours with them and they made the flight a breeze. Great airline, will be flying with Singapore again"
Cons: "Really nothing. I loved flying with them."
Pros: "The aircraft was clean, new, spacious and quiet. The bathrooms were regularly maintained. The food quality, selection and quantity was excellent for the economy class. Even the serving utensils were solid metal and had a very high quality feel to it. Having an endless supply of mid flight snacks was also appreciatd I always like the warm wet towels, which were offered at take off and landing. The entertainment choices were endless, but because it had USB and regular power, I was able to work on my laptop and listen to my podcasts on phone without worrying about running out of battery."
Cons: "The crew lacked its usual pep and cheer. For some reason they seemed very introverted and tired. First time on Singapore Airline that I noticed. The amenities kit was a bit on the cheap side. Also, only the supplied two prong headphones could be used with the entertainment system, I would have preferred an option to use my high end ones -- this was the main reason I chose to just work and listen to my own music/podcasts instead of watching a movie. We boarded and disembarked through the business sections and the aisles were too narrow. The announcements were hard to hear and the temperature was set too low for half of the flight (to kept fluctuating requiring constant adjustment of blanket/jacket). Having said that will keep flying them."
Pros: "the flight time was quick , by the time you took off you practically were preparing for landing"
Cons: "nothing disappointing"
Pros: "Great service with a smile and can do attitude"
Pros: "Cabin crew are always great"
Cons: "Cabin fitout is getting tired and dated. Etihad leaves it for dead in first class"
Pros: "Best coach experience I have had. Good airplane food. Gracious service. Tail wind made us early which was a good thing because LAX is such a mess and it would have been difficult to make our connection with the long bus ride and 2.5 mile walk to the Alaska terminal."
Cons: "Extremely cramped flight in regular Economy."
Pros: "Food & condition"
Cons: "Crew were unfriendly and rude"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled during peak season with little notice time Lack of service Lack of compensation"
Pros: "Great food!!"
Pros: "Crew were friendly and constantly moving through the cabin with drinks and snacks (outside of meal times)"
Cons: "The in-flight entertainment systems are really showing some wear & tear. The screen was blurry, the letters on the control buttons had work off and the sound quality was terrible."
Pros: "Crew and entertainment"
Cons: "Very small seats. For full flights they should use the double deck aircrafts. They are much more comfortable. I paid an expensive fair for an old plane which was unfair"
Cons: "Sydney to Singapore flight was a very old flight, uncomfortable seating and very poor quality entertainment system"
Pros: "The crew did a great job."
Pros: "Great entertainment choices. Staff friendly and attentive, particularly nice is that they feed children first, and offer small entertainment gifts to them."
Pros: "The crew were welcoming and accommodating, whether you wanted to sleep or to watch entertainment or eat/drink."

Pros: "Every things was great ."
Cons: "Headphones- only one channel."

Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "The flight took off late more than an hour"
Pros: "The staff at Qatar Airways did everything they could to make this flight one of the most enjoyable of my entire life. The food was well prepared and exceeded my expectations. I also enjoyed that the food was served at times that minimized the impact of the time change."
Cons: "The movie and TV options were impressive; however, in-flight WiFi and power would have been convenient and improved the entertainment on board the flight."
Pros: "Nothing was spectacular."
Cons: "No lounge in Philadelphia took my Priority Pass. On the flight, the woman in front of me threw her chair back without asking and almost had hot coffee all over me. When I asked her to put her chair up, she got mad. She went to staff to insist she could put her chair back. I showed them that I was indeed in a back brace for a health condition and that I needed opportunities to move and shift, cross legs to release tension, etc. Staff sided with the rude woman, who, given the chance to move to an equal seat on the opposite aisle where she could recline, refused to move. I was very frustrated and have never been treated with such discrimination regarding my health concerns."
Pros: "Good entertainment."
Cons: "Very cramped seating."
Pros: "Everything was good - food, entertainment, on time."
Pros: "I had never heard of Qatar Airways before I booked a 24hr flight to and from Sydney, Australia. I only did this on the suggestion from a friend that stated Qatar Airways was "alright". So for the price I thought what the heck! I was extremely pleased with the service from the cabin crew. They are always polite, professional, and well trained compared to my previous favorites Delta and Lufthansa. The seats were comfortable (as comfortable as Economy and 24hours of flying can be), the entertainment and aircraft were state of the art, and the food was outstanding for airline food. If I get the chance in the future I will definitely choose Qatar Airways for long trips."
Cons: "Other rude or snotty passengers taking up the crews time and attention for no reason. But as I stated in the "positive" side of this review, the crew handled these impolite individuals with a smile and polite attitude. Kudos to Qatar Airways."
Pros: "Friendly crew and good food/drink service. Timely departure. Comfortable and spacious seating at the departure gate."
Pros: "Very affordable flights, good value for money. Most of the journey from Sydney to Oslo (via Doha) went qiluite smoothly)."
Cons: "The only thing I didn’t like about the experience was the fact that you can only check in one piece of luggage on economy class, and one very sour individual at the gate when boarding."
Pros: "quick eficient"
Cons: "long flight"
Pros: "Excellent crew and plane. Not very crowded."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and I liked that they didn’t make many announcements which can often keep passengers awake when they’re trying to sleep. Lights were kept off for the duration of the 14 hour flight which was good."
Cons: "I felt that the service was slow and the food was poor. Water was not offered during the flight as is the norm with other airlines. Toilets should be cleaned more regularly. Advertising at the beginning of the inflight entertainment became very repetitive when watching short tv shows."
Pros: "Philadelphia-Doha was excellent and noticeably better than Doha-Bangkok. ood, service, condition of aircraft were all better in the PHL-Doha leg. I have done the trip a few times now so it is not a fluke. Odd that the Doha food (and I usually get the local dishes) is very so-so. I usually only take a bite or two. Not appetizing. The Doha-BKK staff was less professional as well. The trays of the main meal were left with the passengers so long, we passengers started to bring our own trays to the galley. The plane out of Doha was very tight so passengers in economy have that sardine experience. The cup holders did not work although they would have been useful."
Pros: "great staff"
Cons: "Some of the head phone are not working at all...."
Pros: "Stewards were great"
Cons: "No complaints for this leg of the journey. Entertainment options were mediocre as all legs of my journey had the identical offerings and i pretty much watched all of it in my round trip almost 48 hours of total on plane time."
Pros: "Personal courteous service"
Cons: "Quality of food"
Cons: "Few selection of food."
Pros: "Everything was excellent no complaints rated 10"
Cons: "I really enjoyed myself the flight and all I would recommend my friends to fly anytime rated 10"
Cons: "the wifi was average at best. I get that we there are limitations...but if the service is going to be this poor, make it free & unlimited."
Pros: "Although I felt Qatar responded poorly to the cancelled flight, the actual flying experience was wonderful and made me forget about the extreme inconvenience and poor customer service regarding the cancelled flight."
Cons: "My flight got cancelled ten minutes before boarding. Workers gathered phone numbers and told us they would call to direct us a new flight. However, no calls were ever made. I had to call the airline multiple times to get an answer about a new flight. In my first call, the customer service was rude. There was also zero compensation for the inconvenience."
Pros: "All the stewards were so friendly and helpful. The facilities were very well serviced and so you forget that the plane was 100% full, despite long queues to the toilets. I would fly again with Qatar Air for sure."
Cons: "Poor service, didn't get to sit with rest of our party, food average, overbooked flight, no room for luggage storage."
Pros: "Helpful staffs and great stewardess!"
Cons: "Too many babies this time! Scary bathroom 2 hours before landing. Food portion can be improved. Entertainment screen and choices can be more considerate!"
Cons: "I planned a wonderful vacation for my birthday only to face a horrible experience. Not only was the flight uncomfortable, but my television did not work. There was a huge box underneath the seat in front of me which prevented me from stretching my legs outward. The television was on but the screen itself wasn't operating. I reached for the remote located in the armrest only to find the entire piece missing. Only the base was there. I asked the flight attendents three times if I can move to an empty seat and they said "give me a moment". The moment never came. I really expected more from this airline."
Cons: "Front row with a toddler meant that we couldn't lift the armrests up and get her to lay down. She had to lie on the floor, but when we hit some turbulence, we had to wake her and sit her back up with us. The second part of the leg was much better as we were on a normal row seat"
Cons: "The Qatar stuff at Nairobi airport was very rude when I tried to ask for their help. She was extremely inpatient and showed us angry face. Totally disappointed and not expected from an airline claimed to be one of the best."
Cons: "Poor communication about transfers. I also had to throw away 20 pounds of things or get charge $800"
Pros: "Nothing that i like"
Cons: "Delay, bad food, no strict rules about passenger moving seats"
Pros: "Good service, plenty of entertainment options, modern aircraft."

Pros: "Todo estuvo prfecto"
Cons: "La comida no es nada del otro mundo"
Cons: "The food could be better."
Pros: "Crew Boarding"
Cons: "Food Not so comfy"
Cons: "Cabin temperature in my section was slight hot and was uncomfortable until we complained to the supervisor. Steward spilt food on the floor next to our seat"
Cons: "Arrival in Johannesburg was a nightmare due to queues at immigration - I nearly missed my connecting flight. This was not the fault of Quatar airlines but needs to be taken up with the authorities at OT Airport in Johannesburg"
Cons: "Very cramped space on a 14 hr flight. Very slow food & drink service. Toilets were dirty No opportunity to choose seats despite checking in online the day before - we were allocated 2 adjacent seats but there were none others shown as available on the entire aircraft."
Cons: "7 hours on the phone all over the world so far and absolutely nobody willing to take ownership of this problem. What terrible service"
Pros: "Qatar airways equipment very good."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I am a very tall man and was unable to have an exit row seat. It was not explained why just that they were not available. When I booked the flights I was told to get to the airport as early as possible as exit row seats cannot be booked."
Cons: "The delay was awful Al marjan business class lounge in doha don't have good quiet room bed for sleeping"
Pros: "The entire experience went perfectly. Everything was prompt, smooth, and on time."
Cons: "Nothing. A prepared traveler, is a good traveler. These are different times. Understand there are limitations for everyone. Focus on the basics. Do your homework. Read the airlines’ travel updates. Bring minimal gear. Be EARLY. And lastly, be grateful for getting a flight at a great price. If the flight went smoothly, don’t complain and moan about the little stuff that has nothing to do with getting from point A to point B. It’s a struggle for all of us. Please understand that."
Pros: "No issues. New aircraft! Better than the trip from Manila to Sydney"
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind"
Pros: "The crew was helpful and patient. Toilets were always clean."
Cons: "Beer was not available. Sometimes the type of food was not available in the coach class."
Pros: "Great boarding system and all crews were attentive and polite."

Cons: "Delay in arrival caused us to miss this connection"
Pros: "Crew are very helpful."
Cons: "Need reclining seats"
Pros: "Great Flight Crew very Pleasant"
Cons: "It was a small plane but comfortable and comfortable flight"
Pros: "Nice plane, good crew"
Cons: "Flight was delayed several times at take off, then upon landing we waited on tarmac for another hour waiting for gate to open"
Cons: "PAL is literally never on time. The terminal process was absurd - 300 person line to check in and print a boarding pass. Then it was 1hr late to boars and then >90 mins waiting on the tarmac. Just a terrible on-time performance and inconvenient process that is typical of PAL"
Cons: "I am Filipino and would really love to support this airline, but I can’t help it; the airline really needs to get it together. This is the second and the last time I’ll be flying with this airline internationally."
Pros: "Leg room was small."
Pros: "The service of Philippine Airlines have greatly improved. I have flown over 20 international airlines like Singapore Airlines, Thai Airways, Etihad Airways, British Airways, Lufthansa Airways, JAL, ANA, EVA Air, Korean Air, ASIANA Air , LAN Chile, Cathay Pacific, Qantas Airlines to name a few. And these airlines gave good service. The service of Philippine Airlines is good. They just need to add movies in all the regional flights ."
Cons: "The airlines need to add videos and movies. Without it, the airlines is like flying in the JURASSIC era!"
Pros: "The safety video shown before the flight is the best I have ever seen, highlighting so much that is amazing in the country!"
Pros: "Boarding was fast, very good selection of movies. Food was tasty."
Cons: "Online checkin baggage drop was very slow."
Pros: "I love the service from the crew! I lost count after 6 glasses of coke and orange drinks. They had a lot of patience! I loved also the flight, there wasn’t or no air turbulence."
Cons: "The Manila international airport still needs improvement when checking in, the lines were incredible long and there wasn’t any space to walk around in terminal 2 PAL international departures. If you have big shoulders..you are better off with business class, the seats are for slimmer people."
Cons: "The gate was too far"
Pros: "First let me say I am a big fan of Philippine airlines. The customer service is outstanding, I am always made to feel very comfortable and the movie selection is great. I would give them a 10/10...if it weren’t for the surprisingly below-average special meal selection....read on..."
Cons: "I have been a gluten-sensitive foodie for 7 years. I am not vegetarian. I still eat sugar, salt, spices, dairy, and fat. I have order a GF special meal for the past 3 or 4 trips I’ve flown but I always end up asking for one of the regular meals instead because the GF meals are SO awful. They are completely devoid of all salt, sauces, spices or any flavor, and are so bland that it’s like eating astronaut cardboard food. For example...the last flight I took (Manila-San Francisco), the regular meal options were a chicken sausage dish with some mashed potatoes and veggies, a wonderful colorful julienne vegetable salad, a flan pudding (GF by nature) and some bread with butter. The other option was a delicious smelling pork belly over rice (seriously some of the best pork belly I’ve ever had) and some veggies with the same sides. Everything was gluten-free except for the bread roll and looked much more colorful and fresher overall. By contrast, the GF “special” meal that I received was a plain chicken breast with no salt, steamed veggies that were overcooked and mushy to the point of colorless baby food, with no spices or sauces, a watered-down fruit salad, a rice cake with no butter and a banana instead of dessert. I was amazed at how bland and flavorless it was. Gluten-free does not mean sugar-free, low-fat, or dairy free. It simply means the absence of wheat flour. I still like sauces and spices. And I still like butter. A non-fruit dessert would have been nice. And since when does gluten-free mean flavor-free? I would have MUCH rather preferred the regular meal option with just a gluten-free rice cake substitute. Thank god they had extra regular meals for me to eat instead. Point being…if you’re not extreme celiac and just gluten-sensitive, I recommend ordering off the regular menu and just omitting the bread roll. The flavorless meal isn’t worth it!"
Pros: "I was in a window seat for this flight with no one in between me and the man in the aisle. It was nice to have some space to spread out in."
Cons: "I am about 6 feet tall and the leg room was terrible. I was thankful that the person in front of me did not recline, other side their head would have been in my face."
Pros: "Flight started out by being delayed. I thought we would be delayed at least one hour plus. Did a great job delay time was only 30 min. Then everything was seamless. Great job of getting us to our destination on time."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable and small. My knees were in the seat in front of me the entire thing. I was in a middle seat and was elbowed by the guests on either side of me. Luckily, they were nice. The flight attendants were really unorganized during meal service. Some people had no drink until after their meal. The food was average. They played Infinity Wars, which was cool, but you had to watch as people get in get up and move around."
Pros: "free wifi."
Pros: "From on-line checkin to baggage claim in LAX was easy."
Cons: "At the gate, we had to go through another security check, which was fine. But I had to surrender the water bottle that I just bought from the concession stand across from the gate. The reason I was given was that the US rules require water is not allowed to be carried into the plane... In-flight entertainment did nto have many choices of action films."
Pros: "The salmon dish was however good and more than made up for it."
Cons: "Just a little too long a segment in A322neo"
Pros: "Serice and selection of in flight entertainment"
Pros: "Arrival to first flight was clean and comfortable"
Cons: "During flight- attendant would put her hands all over the cups when filling up water etc. I could not even get water after watching how she handled things that guests would be drinking out of. The flight was - freezing. I turned my light on, no one came to me. I then went and found an attendent (2 different times) and discussed that it was very very cold. I asked to see if they had another blanket, they said no. They didn't do much to change the temperature. I watched for 15 minutes, and no one went to change it. Once they did, it didn't help the situation. Later I requested again, and similarly nothing happened. The food- terrible. Dried up hashbrowns, that were overcooked. Meat, I couldn't even eat."
Pros: "The crew are professionals"
Cons: "The plane. Its an old airbus a340. Was expecting the new boeing 777-300er new business class."
Pros: "On Time. Courteous crew, great service"
Cons: "Comfortable seats, good food, decent wines, inexpensive tickets"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "The flight attendants weren't moving fast enough The orange juice they gave me was bad (stale) - seemed like it's already past it's expiry date"
Pros: "We booked this flight months ago and made plans to meet people. We wanted to arrive early to avoid traffic but since the flight as 3 hours delayed we arrived at 5 and did not get to the hotel that was 20 miles away in 2 hours. When I am late for my flight you cancel my ticket and make me purchase a more expensive one. More than the round trip I purchased so why don't you compensate me when your delayed"
Cons: "Your tardiness and inconsiderate way of doing business. Your irresponsible attitude towards your paying customers."
Cons: "Nearly threee hour tarmac delay. Every time I fly with them there is a horrible delay."
Pros: "The ipad loaded with movies and magazines"
Cons: "The food needs improvement"
Pros: "Clean and new airplane. Good screen Nice staff good space between the seats"
Cons: "Bad snacks, very limited baverage served. Limited selection of movies. very very limited TV shows. Almost no music to my taste, need to upgrade their music options!!"
Pros: "Clean new planes, great service!"
Pros: "The crew was fine.I appreciated that it was non-stop."
Cons: "There was about 8" of leg room in the economy section. Not enough to move my feet around. The beef sausage breakfast was tasteless and not very warm; the eggs were watery. The movie was extremely violent. I worry about the children on board who could see it even if they couln't hear it."
Pros: "On time! Good for Manila"
Cons: "PAL app didn't work. Put in screens!!"
Pros: "Comfortable, good selection of entertainment"
Pros: "great cabin upgrade...competitive to other airlines with newer planes"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. At least this time they sent me a notification via email. On the flight from SFO to Manila, the flight was cancelled and we had to be reaccommodated the next day and I wasn't even notified that that was going to happen."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Not enough leg room"
Pros: "Nice and kind crew"
Cons: "small seats okay food on mobile WiFi entertainment"
Cons: "Why do we have to buy water? It's just water!"
Cons: "Departure was delayed by more than 1 hour"
Pros: "Earlier arrival in MNL on the return flight than expected. Everything went smoothly."
Cons: "Delay in flight from MNL to LAX but not really that much of an issue considering traffic in LAX on a Friday night. Online check-in was not working for the return flight to MNL on Dec 30. Was a little too strict on the check-in luggage. Should consider total weight rather than per luggage piece."
Pros: "Overall flight and crew service were excellent"
Cons: "I wasn't able to enjoy the entertainment due to poor wifi connection"
Pros: "Short flight time for the price"
Cons: "Even though it was shorter flight, the movie selection was even shorter. Had a broken arm so boarded last, counter announced for elderly, and disabled and stuff but did not waited for any takers. They probably didn't see me"
Pros: "Flight attendants were courteous at times."
Cons: "The poor service at the Sydney airport. Not having my special meal and not being flexible enough onboard to compensate or resolve the situation. (I mean, why not have extra vegetarian options available; and beef being the only option is unacceptable for so many reasons, including that there are some religions that don't allow beef.) Lack of wifi and entertainment for an 8 hour flight is ridiculous."
Pros: "It was good other than how long it takes to travel, but that's only because there are no direct flights to Puerto since it's anairport in the making... But other than that, friendly staff. Good flight."
Cons: "I don't like to complain. It. Makes me feel selfish, I didn't really see anything out of the norm, instead I met some great people along the way."
Cons: "Supper was very average , one slice of pizza , that’s it"
Cons: "No entertainment facilities available even in business class"
Cons: "Avoid Malaysian airlines and avoid KUL airport. What a mess of a company ..."
Pros: "Cool and excellent service."
Pros: "The crew was excellent, however I had a very serious problem upon checking in as I DISCOVERED AM NOT ALLOWED A SINGLE KG OF LUGGAGE.THE AIRLINE ASKED ME TO INFORM THE AGENT WHO DID NOT MAKE IT CLEAR WHEN I WAS BUYING THE TICKET.THAT HAS COST ME A LOT OF ANXIETY AND BIG$$"
Cons: "TICKETS ON SALE THAT HAS NOT LUGGAGE MUST BE CLEARLY STATED THAT NO LUGGAGE ALLOWED"
Cons: "Custom check line 200 meters long, security check line another 120 meter long, why not combine them together and open two machine in parallel"
Pros: "The airline better than the budget ariline"
Cons: "The agency that booked through not so cooperative and complicated"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Left late with no explanation"
Cons: "He is cheating telling normal taxi cant for two adualt and three chalidren to buy taket for double price for min bus or van , that person in charge is laieing and not respecting i hope to take acsing because they are the face of malysia visitor and i think no boday will except cheating even for one ringet . If need any details for the person can contact me."

Cons: "distance between rows seems shorter than other airlines such as Emirates"
Cons: "Worst food ever."
Cons: "The crew at the check in counter were generally helpful and courteous, however the staff on the flight we're often short or generally rude; thus continuing the airlines reputation for poor service. The food wasn't great either, but we knew to expect this and brought food purchased from Sydney airport (which was a saving grace)!"

Pros: "Food, entertainment, staff and confort all up to the usual MAS standard"
Cons: "Plane was 45min late departing and I was meeting my partner connecting in KL. There was supposed to be a 2 hour layover - instead we almost missed my flight. Fortunately, he was able to hold the plane and I made it. My baggage didn't though - and was only delivered to the hotel at midnight after a convoluted process claiming it at Tan Son Nhat Airport. Not really good enough given we paid extra in order to be able to travel together. Pick up your game MAS - 2 planes out of the sky and you won't regain customers like this!"

Pros: "The plane was decent. The offering on the IFE was a good mix. Food was ok"
Cons: "The IFE froze. I alerted the crew but it took them nearly 1.5 hours to do a reset of the system. I barely managed to watch a movie and only managed that due to the fact that I had my own earphones. They collect their headsets way too early."
Cons: "our vegan food was not provided"

Cons: "Only 3 hours to checkin prior boarding for business class. I waited for 2 hours foor checkin"

Pros: "For a budget airline, the food is excellent as is the service. The seats are on the smallish side but not as bad as some more expensive options."
Cons: "No movies available for 8hour flight? Got be joking"
Pros: "Don’t remember, that’s how much of an impression they made."
Cons: "Doesn’t matter because I won’t be using this airline again."
Pros: "Airport was quick but not because of airline."
Cons: "How is there no WiFi or entertainment on a 8 hour flight? And having to buy water or anything to drink. Will think further about flying them for a longer trip."
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable and unevenly spaced out for an overnight flight it wasn’t possible to get comfortable to sleep"
Pros: "Crew is very patients"
Cons: "Passenger is noisy & very uncooperative it delayed the flight landing!"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "The air steward and stewardess were so noisy throughout the flight. I stood at the last row where it was close to where they sat and toilet. They took non stop and laughed literally loud. can you imagine the other way round - I am chatting loudly in the midnight and they are trying to get some sleep? They just didn't have professional mannerisms and service awareness."
Pros: "They got me to my destination"
Cons: "No legroom, very narrow seating, no meal, expensive and no on board entertainment for a 7 hour flight"
Cons: "Unconfort and meals for sale too :("

Cons: "At sydney airport airflot staff was doing boarding for air asia, and they wasted our 1:30 min atleast. I had flight from Syd to delhi, flight was via Kul so staff was asking us again and again for Malaysia visa. Also they didnt gave us Kul to delhi boarding pass. We called air asia senior then she came she allowed to go go on last moment. i told them many time we have transit only at KUL so we dont beed visa, they didnt have knowledge so they dont want to understand. Thanks god senior came and told them to give us boarding pass otherwise we gonna miss the flight. At kul airport also staff asked why u didnt get kul to del boarding from syd. We explained him and he issue boarding"
Cons: "The small leg space"
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Took X Air Asia from JAI DPS on flatbed. Excellent!"
Cons: "The only problem was the attitude of the air crew when I asked them to help me put my luggage up. I am short - 150cm, no way I can put my carry on without help. It was not heavy, but their face showing dislike. Can’t they see that I am vertically challenged."
Pros: "Our family had 3 seats together"
Cons: "RUDE AND NASTY FLIGHT ATENDANTS. THEY SHOULD FIND NEW EMPLOYMENT WITHOUT CUSTOMER CONTACT! !!"
Cons: "After boarding flight they took so long to provide food. Kids were literally crying of hunger."
Cons: "They accused me of stealing water."
Cons: "Delayed for over 3 hours!"
Pros: "The staff was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "No food or drinks? What the hell is that? Not even a snack. I've flown with companies all across the world and everyone of them except you offers something free to eat. Also you switched our flights until they were right after one another. We got on a flight at 12 pm right after we ate lunch. We fly for four hours with no food. We get to the terminal and have to run through to catch our next flight so no food. Then fly another two hours with no food and end at 2 am still hungry. Offer something to eat to your customers, don't be a shitty airline."
Cons: "Slow check in, had to pay way too much for checked baggage. No food, snacks or beverages included. Had to pay to rent blankets on their cold planes."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Lack of food online, wasn't made clear when booking that had to pay for a meal. Had to pay 10,000 nepalese ruppes just to get 2 of our small bags on. 15kg in total. That's around £80, very expensive. Tried as much as I could to pay online for baggage but was going around in circles. Felt that for the price of the flight paying and extra £80 for 2 small bags was alot of money."
Pros: "The food (which you buy) is good and there is quite a lot on offer. Staff are very nice. But quite slow."
Cons: "Small seats- little room. No direct air conditioning. No entertainment unless pre-booked. Would be good if you could buy on flight."
Pros: "cabin crew great and friendly"
Cons: "Cabin to cold"
Pros: "The price! Efficient and friendly service. If you don't need to be fed every 4 hours, don't need onboard entertainment and can handle the slightly less legroom than standard carriers then AirAsiaX is highly recommended"
Cons: "You get what you pay for, or in the case of budget carriers you don't get what you don't pay for. AirAsiaX is no frills but that said it is efficient and gets you where you want to go for the lowest prices around. The meal you receive with the 'bag upgrade' pack is ok but nothing special."
Pros: "Everything else."
Cons: "Check-in crew was extremely slow and clueless about what thet were doing. Little to no sense of urgency at all, made a few mistakes, many customers had to come back and get them fixed. One man was on the verge of tears because he was about to miss his flight. The employee even asked me for my visa for my arrival in Kuala Lumpur, for which none was required. When he realised his mistake, he seemed all the more confused. All in all, I have waited one hour in a line with five people ahead of me."
Pros: "The leg room was decent on this flight and luckily the plane wasn't full, so we had an empty seat between us. Great for getting some sleep on an 8-hr red eye..."
Cons: "Boarding process was chaotic. They just board everyone at once. But I was impressed that they still loaded pretty quickly."
Cons: "Very narrow seat No free water You pay what you get..."
Cons: "The couple sittle behind me really don't know how to take care of their children. Open music loudly and the children keep kicking my sit the entire flight."
Pros: "Airfare, cleanliness of aircraft and pleasant crews"
Cons: "Did not enforced zone boarding as announced. Also disappointed this route will be discontinued soon..."
Cons: "The couple sit behind me with the kids keep kicking my chair."
Pros: "Everything was running smoothly"
Cons: "web site booking luggage fee"
Pros: "Good value"
Cons: "Food too spicy"
Pros: "Cheap flight"
Cons: "Food wasn't very good Poor crowd control getting on the flight Poor crowd control getting off the flight Small seats The crew was nice"
Pros: "The business class is a low cost, but the crew made it a first class for us. They were just lovely and helpful. They asked if we needed anything if we were not sleeping."
Cons: "That there's no entertainment. Companies like Air Canada have WiFi on board entertainment and you use your own device. It isn't something so expensive and it would make it perfect."
Pros: "If you need to rebook, then you really discover the secret of low cost airline"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "A bit right"
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours 40 minutes"
Pros: "Boarding was fast and the plane was nice too."
Cons: "No entertainment nor food for a flight of 9 hours which was international. That surprised me a lot. Plus the plane was very cold."
Pros: "Crew were joyfull and let you forget the exhaustion of the flight"
Cons: "Seats too small cant fit a big at all needs two chair to be comfortable"
Pros: "Same as above Both legs of the flight were pretty much the same."
Cons: "Same as above, plus they also made it very difficult to sleep because they didn't turn off the lights for very long. All I wanted to do was try and rest a bit since it was such a long overnight flight, but between the screaming babies in the rows next to me, and the fact that the cabin lights were only turned off for about 4 hours, I really didn't rest much at all."
Pros: "My daughter was sick after she ate the food."
Pros: "All 12 business class chairs feel like a real business class, but there is no display on any kind. I usually prefer to follow my flight progress and data when traveling."
Cons: "Horrible check in, you have to stand in line with your luggage to screen it before entering check in area. After check in there is no business lounge, which really sucks. The commercial lounge at the Beijing Airport Terminal 2 has been full and we could not get in."
Cons: "They don't tell you that the *minimum* charge for checked baggage is AUD 39 for EACH leg of the trip until you attempt to check in online. Presumably they're trying to avoid price competition. Pretty sleazy! Also, no in flight entertainment and they charge for water. They threaten to charge you still more (without telling you how much more) if you don't print out your boarding pass in advance. In the end, however, it is *not* necessary. I guess they just enjoy killing trees and being dicks."
Pros: "I was able to travel from one place to another."
Cons: "1. I received one email from AirAsia giving me a confirmation number to my flight. Little did I know that I was supposed to receive a second email with booking number. Therefore, when I got to the Pudong airport, I just didn't have a ticket. I was passed from one person to another without explanation what was going on. Then the person who finally helped me was incredibly rude and even told me to "not say anything" to him when I voiced my complaint. I wasn't allowed to pay by card only cash. 2. The flight was delayed by over an hour and I wasn't allowed to use the toilet for over an hour. 3. The crew were unfriendly and unprofessional. We were waiting to take off for so long I had finished all my water and when they finally came around to give us water, IN THE MIDDLE OF GIVING ME MY WATER the steward decided to chat with another stewardess for a minute. That was the last straw. It was the worst possible flight on top of it being red eye. SO incredibly unprofessional. It's like they purposefully want you to feel bad for choosing a budget airline. And it's not even that budget. I am never going to fly with this airline again."
Pros: "flights were on time and the crew friendly, i paid a little extra for the premium flex fare which was worth it for the priority check-in and baggage"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Very basic - but the worst part came on my 2nd flight - lost the connection and spent 90 min to get rebooked on next flight. This started with being given incorrect info from their call center about a connecting flight to Penang that was made back in December."
Pros: "The crew members were nice & professional"
Cons: "Of course the boring and tedious flight hours. Compact room lacking in entertainments"
