Table on my right hand side was too close to my body, and to high to reach a drink easily, I literally had to lift my whole right arm to pick up a glass."
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: "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: "As usual, plane is in good shape and crew are well trained. Nothing wrong with all the basics, but Singapore Air has definitely lost its lustre."
Cons: "For heaven's sake, please don't announce a boarding procedure and then not follow it. If you want to have a free-for-all rugby scrum to get on the plane, so be it. But don't announce boarding by rows/groups and then not make even a lame attempt to adhere to it."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled during peak season with little notice time Lack of service Lack of compensation"
Pros: "I am still trying to find my bags. I missed my connection and Jet Blue made me stand in a line to get rebooked for 7 hours. Unprofessional, uncaring. None of this was my fault but everyone who represents Jet Blue treated me as if it were. Never again"

Pros: "Flight was full, but generous seat pitch and efficient crew made the difference!"
Pros: "Quick & efficient boarding but cost cutting has taken the shine off what used to be a quality airline experience."

Pros: "Entertainment choices were good"
Cons: "Dinner was tasteless and my cup of tea was bitter, too strong and a bit cold The cup of tea slid off the slippery, sloped table right into my lap, over my mobile phone and into my bag below. The staff didn’t seem to care. They admitted this happened a fair bit."

Pros: "Good entertainment choices. Preferred check thru TSA. No one seating next to me."
Cons: "I don't think I will use Kayak again. You farmed out my booking to Voyama which spelled my name wrong.

Pros: "The flight was on time and the crew was very attentive. Loved Cathay Pacific’s signature non alcoholic drink”Ocean Breeze”."

Cons: "Cathay not the "cut above" it once was."

Cons: "There were no immigration forms on board. When I asked for one, the hostess said there had been an announcent Mayybe there was one in mandarin but certainly not in english. A senior hostess cam later to apologize zaying the reason was that there were new forns since 1 Dec when leaving the plane, everyone was given old forms! All very unptofessional..."

Cons: "Poor food and very basic (old movies) entertainment - always delayed"
Pros: "Very quaint and hour flight went by pretty fast"
Cons: "Electric outlets did not work on chairs"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient. Crew did their job pleasantly ."
Cons: "Food was very ordinary, not up to what I expect in business class."
Pros: "The movie"
Cons: "More than 1 hr delay. I had ordered kosher food. They came to show it but it never appeared later. I complained and they broight it: the starter was frozen solid. Eventually i had a fish plate. Not too bad..."
Pros: "Great food, free, and also free snacks, lovely staff, extra pillows and blankets provided. Roomy, loved it, plan to use then again !"
Pros: "Usual Cathay high standards - which is what one expects."
Cons: "Older A330 for short haul so not lie flat seats. Older IFE. Food, oddly, not great today (unusual for Cathay)."
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!!!!"
Pros: "More space between seats"
Cons: "Little to no vegetarian option"
Pros: "The check in staff were only doing their job, by insisting that I had an onward ticket before they checked me in, as per Thai immigration ruling. Otherwise, if I did not have an onward ticket, they stated they could not check me in, and would refund my ticket. The problem is there are many ways of travelling out of Thailand, and I frequently visit Cambodia and Thailand via bus. How could I produce a bus ticket which I usually buy only a week before departure?"
Cons: "That was a bit of a rude shock, as I had never encountered such obstacles before, and most fortunately I did indeed have a reservation for a BKK-GVA ticket, or I would have been refused boarding. Apparently the Thai immigration authorities have a condition for Swiss citizens to possess an onward ticket before they can enter Thailand, but this is the first time an airline has applied this as strictly, and has been as insistent, as Cathay Pacific. I have been in & out of BKK hundreds of times, and this is the first time ever an airline has applied this rule to the letter. So, bottom line, never again will I fly Cathay Pacific."
Pros: "The service and quality are absolutely OK, the airline is awesome!"
Pros: "The crew was very cordial and respectful.We spilled our water on the seat and they quickly helped us to clean it up without any fuss or accusation."
Cons: "The food did not smell delicious. My son was already feeling quite ill from the previous trip and could not eat."
Pros: "All but did not eat"
Pros: "most of the crew was fine but..."
Cons: "one crazy crew member started banging on the restroom door and would not stop until I opened the door. ... simply because the pilot was telling us the weather in HK. So rude. Will definitely select another airline next time."
Pros: "Every thing was ok but no snack"
Cons: "Water and soft drink are important for every one shold serve every half an hour"
Pros: "Everything went very well with the very good service of Cathy Pacific."
Cons: "Maybe a map of document control areas."
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."
Pros: "The crew did fine and the food was OK."
Cons: "There was almost no information about what was happening with the delays. You need to do a better job of disseminating information. The food voucher was nice but it was all word of mouth among the passengers. To have a 5 hour delay is tough. You should have better charging facilities at your gates. You could only stand and charge and the plugs were all Hong Kong/English specific. Nothing universal about those plugs. I had to borrow an adapter to charge my laptop during the delay. The spicy fish dish tasted like it had been fouled during the delay. I like spicy fish generally but this tasted tainted."
Pros: "Food was good. Crew were very nice and supportive."
Cons: "Nothing to complain."
Pros: "Cabin layout 1-2-1 , comfort in the seats, privacy , attentive service , choice of food caress for we tenets also , wines selection"
Cons: "Since I found all to my liking there is nothing I could comment about ."
Cons: "I feel discriminated when was asked by your staff, "Would you like the pork with rice or the chicken with rice?." I am in hijab. Please be more sensitive. Thank you."
Pros: "Entertainment was excellent. Happy for the USB charger installed in the seat. Staff was quite friendly. Food was okay sometimes."
Cons: "Seats were difficult to recline. Chairs were uncomfortable, not enough back support. Upset that the set of round trip tickets never showed the gate number, even more upset that both ways I could not use online check in, it always said "error.""
Pros: "Friendly crew, comfortable seating, and good food. Enjoyed my flight with China Airlines and will travel with them again in the future!"
Pros: "Attentive staffs, shortest time on flight connection."
Cons: "My seat couldn't recline"
Pros: "Comfortable premium economy seat. Nice crew."

Cons: "Wish there were more English instructions spoken. It was mostly Thai and Chinese."
Pros: "Smooth and easy"
Cons: "Check in location not clear in the beginning."
Pros: "Food was slightly better than the previous flight."
Cons: "Same lousy headphones. My seat had a led rest that made it harder to get in and out, and wasnt usable due to the close distance to the seat in front. What was the designer thinking? I missed the drink service if there was one, never saw water going around until right at the end. . ."
Pros: "seats were full configurable, tray table very logical and space all felt useable."
Cons: "the seats in business class as 1-2-1 seating. each seat has aisle access! flight was super smooth, seats comfortable, although the ‘2’ seas had no arm rest on the isle side. took a little getting used to. There was no overhead bin for the center “2” seas, had to share with the outer window occupants, but plenty of room. IFE was a huge screen with great programming. it looked like.a 16 or 18” screen. meal service was above average and wine selection was strong. featuring both old world and new."

Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "Flight was delay"
Pros: "Quick easy boarding"
Pros: "good service and food but A330 is too old and small"

Cons: "Need more leg room"
Pros: "Like everything but the seats. The flight attendants are amazing."
Cons: "Only thing I didn’t like was the chairs weren’t as comfortable as the seats from the flight to taiwan. My back hurt more."
Pros: "I liked the crew members. They were welcoming and professional. Flight fare was very good in value for waiting a few extra hours in Taipei. I could do some shopping there while I was in transit. Nice airport. The screens of my row were not working so they restarted all screens a few times. While the screens of my row worked, other rows were not working. Surprisingly no one fixed or complaint as the screens of other rows kept off from the start to the end of the flight. I felt so sorry for others."
Cons: "Like what I said in "what I like", I think the connection of the screens/tablets had some issues. Luckily mine worked. I would be upset if my screen did not work during the entire 9 hours flight."
Pros: "I like the boarding styles and the crew"
Cons: "I didn't like that we had to wait for one guy cause he was late. I also didn't like the little room we have to streach."

Cons: "Frigid cold"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and service was great on all China airlines."
Cons: "On this particular plane it was very uncomfortable. It was extremely noisy (the plane not people) and the exhaust was so strong it made me feel so sick, nauseous and from what I can tell others felt the same. This was the only plane that was like this of the four planes I took on this trip. The rest were excellent overall. Thank you."
Cons: "Everything was a joke to a West standard"
Pros: "The crew was good at safety check, general cleaning in lavatory."
Cons: "The boarding process were mess for both flights. Lack of direction."
Pros: "Food was pretty good (for airplane food), staff was friendly and made sure everyone was comfortable"
Pros: "It was very organized ."
Cons: "Nothing ."
Pros: "First of all, china airlines cancelled my original flight and put me in one 6 hours earlier, I had to change around and pay for changes to my other flights to make it work. Then 3 days before I depart they cancel another flight and don't even offer me one on the same day, they didn't have any. They put me on a flight 17 hours earlier that threw my schedule so much I had to hasltle with them, book anoth r airline and lose another few hundred dollars. To say china airlines is awful and unreliable is an understatement. it is the second time this has happened to me, the appearance of cheaper fairs is never worth the trouble u will have with china airlines or any of its affiliates such and china eastern. Thy have old planes, funny rules about phone use and just awful customer service and disregard for people plans and changes that they make. Never book China airlines. You will regret it I promise you."

Pros: "I fly to South East Asia quote often and have tried a a few airlines. China Airlines has been the most consistent in all aspects. On time, ease of flying, on board entertainment. I will continue to look to use this Airline in the future."

Pros: "Nice crew"
Pros: "The economy class seats are actually some of the best to sleep in!"

Pros: "Crew was impressive. Very efficient with exceptional customer service and appearance."
Cons: "Food was awful. Flight was 1hr late"
Pros: "I particularly appreciated having so many employees assist those passengers (including me!) who needed to connect in Tapei with the flight to Bangkok. Our flight arrived a bit later than scheduled, and I was concerned that I would miss the connection to Bangkok - but our connecting flight was held for us, and several employees were available to direct us to the correct gate for boarding. thank you all!"
Cons: "Flights were delayed taking off from LAX and Taipei."
Pros: "Nice crew, decent food"

Cons: "The flight was delay and this the frist time I ever been delayed in my flights experience."

Pros: "That we were provided with seat belts."
Cons: "The level of uncomfortableness rivaled that of Spiritair. From friction burns on the knees from the seat directly in front of you, to virtually hosting your front neighbor's head in your lap when they recline. And I'm all of 5'8"! Even though easily +90% of the passengers were Americans, Australians, New Zealanders and Europeans, and that the flight was between 2 English speaking countries, we were addressed in Mandarin Chinese. Reminds me a bit of Air Canada with their often French bias."
Pros: "Courteous and professional staff. Excellent food service."
Cons: "Seats were not that good. Needs upgrading."
Pros: "Taipei is a nice airport to make connections through, with amenities on par with Seoul. Seemed much cleaner and more relaxed than other airports in the region that I've flown through in the past, such as Guangzhou or Hong Kong."
Cons: "Flight departed 25 minutes late, but Taipei is a nice airport to make connections through. Still had to go through security between arrival/departure gates, but lines were short at our time of night. Crew seemed a bit tired, since this seems to be the last leg of their shift before rotating out in BKK before the plane goes on to Amsterdam."

Pros: "Seats were a little better."
Cons: "Delayed boarding and take off"

This is just too many times. I wanted to get Turkish Air credit card. After my experience with last flight I am RE consider this. regards IHarel."
Cons: "Check-in counter: clerk was “mute”, no greeting, no words about the gate, luggage destination, passport paper. Poor communication: 90 minutes delay, but no announcements Inconsiderate: when the “business class bathroom” located between business and economy classes, was unoccupied, the fly attend Commanded not to use after standing there for 10 minutes. No tea or coffee with breakfast Gate has no information: no destination, no time indicated"

Pros: "Everything was exceptional"
Pros: "Airplane crew was amazingly friendly and helpful"
Pros: "The Lounge at Istanbul airport is fantastic"

Cons: "No space"
Pros: "Some of the crew members were sweet, and helpful. I liked that the bathroom had soap and lotion as well."
Cons: "The security was rude when we were getting into our gate. They humiliated a man because he didn't understand their accent. There was a group of young employees and they came off as very immature. There was a crying baby next to me for the majority of the 13 hours. They ran out of food, and I had no choice but to eat the pasta option even though I do not eat pasta in my normal life. My knees hurt from not having space to stretch out for such a long flight. It was freezing cold and they did not have extra blankets. It felt like my section kept getting skipped over for everything (food, liquids, general checking in to make sure people were okay). We boarded late, and left late. When I arrived the luggage took VERY long - almost an hour - to come out."
Pros: "Great food! Loved that you get a menu to choose from"
Cons: "We were not asked or given the option to choose our seats on the plane."
Pros: "Flight attendants need to be friendly."
Cons: "I will never use Turkish airlines again."
Cons: "The fact that I missed my connection flight in Thailand because of a two hour delay. I was never informed why there was so much of a delay and in turn I had to pay triple of what I payed before for my flight. Very disappointed. Won't be flying this airline again. Service was rude. They should be more responsible when it comes to timing. We were on the flight waiting for two hours!!!"
Pros: "Great variety in entertainment options and delicious food, well prepared and served."
Cons: "There was a "skip" or interruption in the movies. I could follow them, but the system needs to be adjusted a bit. Overall very good. Oddly, the foot rest, in the upright position, bumped into my shins and made stretching my legs a bit uncomfortable. And I'm average height (5' 10")."

If you go to a gate waiting area with no flight soon, you can stretch out and sleep. Good English-language bookstore."
Pros: "all in all !!!!"
Cons: "Cabin temperature too high, the flight attendants borderline rude and always on a hurry, I mean what's the hurry durin a 12:30 hours long haul flight. Turkish airlines has decreased its quality of service."

Pros: "I like that two meals were served, beverages were available as well as snack throughout the flight. Each seat had its own television and option to watch a movie, TV show, or listen to music."
Cons: "There were too many announcements being made when they could've combined them. It was disrupting to those watching or listening to something."
Pros: "The crew on the flight was trying to do his best - but too late and too little."
Cons: "The flight was delayed in 22.5 hours. No information or instructions where to go or what to do was given. When little info was obtained by shouting of chinese-speaking passengers, it was in mostly in chinese - not English. For 22 hours we actually did not know what to expect. When we finally were told that there is a flight - huge lines to check in. No help with connecting flights was offered. when I asked to reserve a connecting flight - I was put on a connecting flight that I missed anyway because of further on-going delay. When I reached Istanbul - no help was actively offered. I had to arrange my connecting flight. No compensation was offered. When we asked for some food and water, we were sent to the lowest level lounge in Ataturk airport. Very poor Turkish Airlines experience!"
Pros: "Timing, schedule is well arranged. Staffs are helpful"
Cons: "Every time, the breakfast are omelette??? Its taste was terrible. I flew a two-way flight and got 4 omelettes. And once it messed my stomach."
Cons: "The flight attendant was kind of rude. They ignored what I would say when the drinks came around. Also, one of them would try to hurry me and always tap on my shoulder instead of just saying "excuse me""
Cons: "The seats on the second flight were smaller and we had no flight console (no movies, usb charge..)"
Pros: "Service from the flight attendants were fantastic. The food was delicious and the entertainment included plenty of movie options. I'm also glad that my bags were never lost throughout all of my flights this summer on Turkish Airlines."
Cons: "I know seats in the 777-300 recline but do not disrupt the next row's space. That was not the case on the Airbus A330-300. It would be nice if the same seats were on the Airbus aircraft I flew from Istanbul to Bangkok."
Pros: "The crew was extremely polite and pleasant. We felt welcomed and taken care off."
Cons: "It was an old plane and it was not possible to see the tv monitors."
Pros: "Prompt service throughout."
Cons: "Would have preferred gate departure and arrival."
Cons: "Our flight was canceled. There was terrible communication from the Turkish airlines staff and a complete inability to handle the situation. The entire flight was stuck in the airport for while without any information. The customer service hotline was unable to help anyone because there was a miss communication from the staff in the airport and our flight hadn't been canceled in their system yet. It's was my worst flight experience to date"
Pros: "Boarding was tedious with like 6 checks of your passport but being safe is never a bad thing. No cost alcohol is always a plus and the food was good. Staff was super nice and accommodating."
Cons: "I intentionally chose an empty row but people kept shuffling. so many folks were standing blocking aisles. I think staff could do a better job to prevent that."
Pros: "The crew is excellent"
Cons: "The seats area are too small my knees hurt as they hit just the edge of the food tray, impossible flight with the seat other than straight as you will be disturbing a lot the other passengers, although unfortunately some people do not care about the confort of the others"
