Cons: "Economy seats aren't so great on any carrier."
Pros: "There should have been some information upfront that such (cheap) flight (compared to the norm of Thai Airways) is a low-cost one! Otherwise I'd have been more okayed with this. I was surprised a lot of corners were obviously cur (that's why it was rather cheap) like meal for example!"
Cons: "Just be upfront and tell people this is a low cost flight so expectations wouldn't then be that high!"

Cons: "Business class seats on the B747 - unless you’re sitting upright, they are one of the most uncomfortable seats I’ve experienced. TG either need to upgrade the seats on the B747 (very unlikely) or put another aircraft type the BKK-SYD-BKK route."

Cons: "Board was troublesome and wasted alot of time as the tube was not used.had to walk down a flight of stairs then wait for mini bus (with very limited seats), then take it for around 5-7mins drive to reach the plane. Then wait for the previous minibus's crowd to clear then walk another flight of stairs up the plane :( I can accept this from a budget airline but not a commercial airline at a usual well-equipped airport especially when it's at its own home country."
Pros: "Boarding and food was ok, staff friendly"
Cons: "Poor communication about delay, old entertainment system"
Pros: "We boarded on time, the crew were fantastic...very friendly and helpful. Food was plentiful but the salmon was somewhat dry. There were other options offered. The entertainment system worked but some more recent movies would have been appreciated."
Pros: "Efficient and friendly staff."
Cons: "Bad choice of in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "The plane was a very old B777-300 and the air conditioning did not work so the whole flight was very warm. The cabin in general was very dated and cramped. Having flown the A350 to Bangkok which was newer and much better, did not see why they couldn’t operate the flight back on the same platform"
Pros: "return flight on a brand new plane - always helps Excellent movies selection"
Pros: "Quick & efficient boarding but cost cutting has taken the shine off what used to be a quality airline experience."
Cons: "I’m not fussy about food, but the menu today was about as uninspiring as they come. Along with polite but perfunctory service and a seat that is nothing better than premium economy, I don’t know how they can get away with calling their business class product, Business Class!"
Pros: "Showing the Thai ways."
Cons: "Maybe it’s time to change the seats. No USB charging ports but there’s power outlet."
Pros: "The food was the best airline food for the whole trip. The green curry was very nice, though it would have been better with chicken instead of fishball."
Cons: "The boarding was ridiculous. We had to get off the previous flight so far away from the main terminal, and wait on the tarmac for the driver of the van to come. He was late. Luckily, the Passenger Services Agent was reactive enough to check our boarding gate with her handphone and wrote the gate number on our boarding pass. It was a mad rush from where we alighted from the van to the gate which was at the extreme end of the terminal, coupled with stairs up and down, and carrying our hand luggage. Anybody with a weak heart would have collapsed. What more when we are both senior citizens! The time to change plane was incredibly short. That was a torture. One more hour would have been just right."
Pros: "Nothing! The plane left late and while waiting, the airco blastwd like a freezer. My feet and gands became numb and I got a terrible headache. Next, a chinese couple with a 1 year old toddler came to sit next to m: the child started wailing immediately and this lasted until 5 min before landing. It was like they had not a clue on how to handle a child and they had nothing to make it drink or suck or distract it. Worst flight in ages.."
Pros: "Good, new olance, definitely recommended"
Cons: "Why do you enforce the arrival videos? That's annoying. Furthermore, the loud music 30 minutes before landing disturbs too."
Pros: "Very efficient and attentive service . On time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Old aircraft, 747 , seats very comfortable but no flat beds.. Choice of movies but mostly second grade."
Pros: "The pre-ordered seafood meal was excellent. The flight crew was very good."
Cons: "The seats (bottom) have become worn and caved in. And the head rests are as flat and hard as rocks. They need to be changed ."

Cons: "Special screenings in singapore of all luggage: took more than 1 hour to get out"
Cons: "Late ,always late leaving and Landing"
Pros: "Business class on this short haul flight was fantastic, but sadly I don’t think this is the normal route it will take as I think they were testing it. If you can get one of these on long haul they are a very nice plane, individual compartments and some very modern touches. Windows darken without blinds, loads of space in your compartment and food was good even as just a snack."
Cons: "I can’t think of anything I didn’t like and if Thai Air have these rolling out for long haul I’ll definitely look at them against"
Pros: "Firstly, I do really appreciate that I had great deal from Kayak and Thai airways. Flights was awesome."
Cons: "Boarding process quite disorganized. Business Class, Star Allince and everyone board almost at the same time. There was a old printer super noisy and anoiying in boatding area.... please change it or use something to cover noise....."
Pros: "Efficient cree"
Cons: "Food was not good"
Cons: "My sister died and I wanted to change the date of my ticket and Thai would not cooperate at all, on the other hand Delta changes all my tickets so I could return to the states with no additional fees. Thai said economy call was full on my requested change date but they had Business Class tickets available, and I ask if I could apply the cost of my economy ticket amount to the Business Class ticket and they said no, that I could only purchase a new Business Class ticket. Real accommodating when you have an emergency."
Pros: "A380 is a comfortable plane but Thai Airways setup not as nice as Qatar. Boarding was swift, the crew was polite enough."
Cons: "It was a night flight but I wish water was served often."
Pros: "Comfortable 787 with large windows and self-dimming LCD blinds. Frequent and courteous food and refreshment service."

Cons: "Actually I was disturbed that CX offers a tabloid newspaper like Apple daily, especially at this sensitive stage when hk is going through such turmoil instigated and supported by Jimmy Lai’s group. It is offensive that such a biased newspaper is on offer, when there are other Chinese newspaper with a more neutral stand. Cathy has been viewed as a sympathiser of “yellow” rioters because of its involvement by management n crew. Now it just brings it more to the memory how CX might be what the leaked reports that many equipment has been compromised by CX crew onboard. Many of CX customers are from middle class, and it could be a big turn-off. It is unwise to patronise a tabloid newspaper when the owner has been named by China as the culprit of the recent troubles in hk. It’s like offering Al Jazeera news on united airlines entertainment........During the whole trip, I was captivated by these thoughts."
Cons: "The in flight entertainment is very old."
Pros: "The crew was understanding of our situation. We had a layover in Hong Kong and they moved us to the front in hopes that we will get out quicker to make the next flight."
Cons: "It wasn’t the airline fault that we were delayed nothing else could have been done"
Pros: "The onboard crews were excellent. The entertainment was good too. However, the HK check in counter staffs were terrible, rude, condescending, unprofessional. They left bad tastes in our mouths and ruined the whole trip experience."
Cons: "Cathay HK check in counter staffs need to be courteous, respectful, and professional. They need to be trained not to be rude, condescending, disrespectful, unprofessional"

I bought from you air tickets with Scoot airlines from H.K to Singapore on 30 December and back to H.K on the 3 January. when I came to the H.K airport to check in with scoot airlines they said to me that I can't go to Singapore because my passport expired on 2 of June and it's less than 6 months if I want to go to Singapore I need to have in my passport more than 6months. sow in the end I lost the ticket to Singapore and not only this I went back to H.K I toke a room in the hotel 150$ and the day after I went to the embassy of Israel to extend my passport and I bought a new air tickets with Cathay Pacific 350$ to go to Singapore. its mean that I lost my ticket +500$ .and all this because you never informed me that my passport needs to be valid more than 6 months . you can see also in your letter its written there that my passport need to be valid there is not any thing about 6 months. if you was telling me that before I could change my passport. sow pleas I insist that you will pay me back half on my ticket that I lost + my expenses 500$. if I will not get it back my story will be all over in the internet about you I suffered a lot"

Cons: "When we booked we asked for a child's meal and we advised of allergies. However I don't see why we would have to ask as we booked a child's seat and you have to provide the age which she is 4. When onboard from SYD/HKG and HKG/LONDON, NO meal was available for our child except for what everyone else was eating. She is anaphylaxis to shellfish, she was given shrimp!!!!! I am sure if she was given a child's meal she would not have got this. We were then told we have to advise the airline 12 hours before we fly that we want a child's meal. I am sorry but when travelling we should not have to do this and nor have we ever had to do it on any other airline. Poor poor poor!!!!"

Cons: "Ground staff at HK before leading to the counter, needs more focus in terms of understanding passenger requirements and addressing accordingly."

Pros: "The flight was very pleasant and the crew exemplary."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by over 3 hours and I just missed check in for my connecting flight. I was not allowed to board by British Airways. Unfortunately this was a separate ticket and resulted in me having to purchase a new ticket at a very higher cost. While I accept the delay was beyond Cathay's control I would have make the check in on the connecting flight in time if they had provided assistance in transiting through the airport. Unfortunately no help was provided and after I missed the check in and spoke to the Cathay Pacific representative they only advised me I would have to find another flight."

Cons: "Some of the food served was quite bad .... other options were pretty good"

Cons: "very cramped"
Cons: "Crazy long delay. Wasted a whole extra day at the airport with no help or accommodations. :("
Pros: "Normal standard for that kind of trip"
Pros: "The view"
Cons: "Poor food and no choice, only given tofu noodles! The general appearance of the plane was dated and worn, needs a refit. It felt more like a cheap budget airline not ‘the spirit of australia’ as branded. The touch screen was so bad that you forced the persons head in front to move when you pressed the screen."
Pros: "It was my first A380 flight, and overall I was disappointed relative to the Dreamliner. Yet it stands out as a positive the way that Qantas has configured business class on the upper deck. It's quite peaceful. The staff was pleasant, but could have been more attentive. It felt like some cared and others did not."
Cons: "I have flown millions of miles with Qantas, but it's been more than 10 years since my last flights. My expectations were high and i the end I only felt "OK" about the experience. The seats are not competitive with other business classes in the sky. I realize that is about to change. I flew Air Canada into Australia, and while my seat was unfortunately broken, the capabilities and overall comfort of their seats is far superior to Qantas. The business class lounge in Sydney had very poor food options in my opinion, and I was quite peckish after having skipped lunch to travel to the airport for a 4pm flight. The food options on the flight were much better, though overall options / taste were just OK."
Pros: "I loved Qantas's attention to detail and their exceptionally friendly staff. Best airline I've used in recent years."

Pros: "Staff was very accommodating"
Pros: "I loved the first meal and the choices all seemed amazing. Staff were friendly during boarding. Seats were really comfortable and good movie and song choices."
Cons: "The second meal, a small noodle box was dry, overcooked, and bland even with the dressing. The crew was not very friendly during the flight (I understand maybe they had a cranky passenger before and it was a long flight but smiling isnt that hard!). Inflight service was inconsistent as one side came down to serve 15minutes after the first side. The headphones looked quite dirty so I used my own. Boarding was quite slow and then takeoff was late but it was nice that the captain explained it."
Pros: "Excellent service. Comfortable seats in economy with good leg room"
Cons: "Poor screen & audio quality on movie system."
Pros: "In flight entertainment had a good selection"

I first flew w Qantas in 2005 in business class, and since then i have downgraded. But the attitude hasn't changed. It's as if we are doing service by choosing Qantas...."

Between departing international flight - picking up luggage/toilet stop and clearing Immigration/Customs then catching bus between Qantas international domestic terminals we were racing to catch flight. As we arrived Qantas domestic terminal our names were being called over along with info the plane was awaiting our arrival. In my experience 2hrs is minimum time between connecting flights - otherwise good experience."

Pros: "I have been traveling at least 4 times in a year for last 20 years. I never had such a worst staff specially the Msnager of Fiji airline ground staff at Sydney airport named Christopher. Such a rude ignorant person. The amount of luggage including baby stroller I traveled from Los Angeles to Nadi. Nadi to Sydney was perfectly fine. When I checkin from Sydney to los angles, the Fiji manager said you have to pay for stroller. I said I came all the way from Los Angeles to Sydney like that and I even showed the tags too, Christopher said Sydney has different policy. I left the stroller to him and Saud to him keep it for your kids and came back home without baby stroller."

Cons: "The quality isn’t there... vegetarian meal was the same on both flights and beyond below par. Planes seem to be pretty past there prime in the 4 flights I have been on. Check in process is a nightmare without any automated options that backs everything up. When I arrived in Los Angeles and found that two zippers had been torn from my bag and one pocket open, the baggage staff scoffed at my claim and told me to go speak to a third party that handles baggage claims... I’ll just steer clear next time."
Pros: "The way we were boarded."
Cons: "Seating was uncomfortable and meals were tasteless"
Pros: "Service, space, seats and one meal was good."
Cons: "Fiji airways lost about a third of the baggage on our flight and no representatives would give us any information.

Cons: "The luggage weight limitation on carry-on bags"
Pros: "The service was very friendly."
Cons: "My knees while sitting upright drive into the seat in front of me. No extra legroom seats available. Please start saving these for people who actually need them. Also, boarding was like cattle hearding, lack of organization caused anxiety ... albeit my wife and I were amused by people without direction."
Pros: "Our flight to NAN was delayed five hours ; however, when we came to the check-in desk, they knew immediately who we were and informed us of a change. The staff at the desk [a man and a woman] were extremely helpful and verified a change would be acceptable and they put in all of the work to make it happen - we returned an hour later and they had switched us to a flight from SYD - SFO - LAX on Qantas airlines. Things from there went off without a hitch ; while our departure time was still 5 hours later, we arrived to the US earlier than we would have on the SYD-NAN-LAX flight."
Cons: "The five hour delay ; however one cannot have qualms with inclement weather."

The gate staff did not allow time for him to get to his seat before letting the rest of the passengers board and the staff assisting him were very upset as were the passengers who were wondering what was taking so long to get to their seats."
Pros: "Had decent entertainment options and enjoyed the blanket and pillow!"
Cons: "Food, I chose to not even eat the meals after my first experience with Fiji Airways."

Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Not much. Bathroom was clean"

Pros: "Nothing stood out."
Cons: "Treated like a second tier customer. Rude flight attendants. Did I mention my flights we're delayed 3+ hrs and the plane's engine gave out. That happened. Very poor/mediocre airline. Oh and the seats are extremely uncomfortable. Everyone around was worthy of contempt."
Pros: "The person at the gate checked everyone's ID's while we were sitting in the gate. It saved so much time."
Cons: "I wish my vegetarian meal wasn't vegan."
