Pros: "Crews were great. They worked fast and helpful."
Cons: "The main issue was getting off the plane in Sydney - we had to wait for a bus to offload us as the plane was sitting a long distance from the terminal. The bus eventually came, offloaded half the passengers and then returned 20 minutes later to start to offload the rest. It's the longest time I've ever spend disembarking from a plane and clearing an airport - very poor whoever was responsible (I'm assuming Sydney airport was at fault)."

Pros: "Honestly everything went really well. Like the title say, it was easy booking, a great price, and I got some wonderful memories to bring home."

Pros: "Been flying with ANA ever since I started living in Japan, and it has always been a pleasure. No complaints whatsoever."
Cons: "No problems."
Pros: "ANA use the Boeing 787 for this leg of the journey. This is the best plane flying in the air right now."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike."
Pros: "easy check in."
Cons: "can't choose my own seats."
Pros: "It was short."
Cons: "Two key issues: 1. Split up seating 2. Required to pick up and check baggage with limited time due to customs check. 1. They split up all four of our seats (despite booking more than 30 days in advance). Our seven (7) year old daughter was by her self. So was our fifteen (15) year old son. When we addressed it to baggage check (part of major issue number 2), they put two seats together, across an aisle, with both children in them. We obviously just sat one of the adults with the seven year old. This was not just us. SEVERAL families had children seated alone and spread all over the plane. ANA needs to require grouped seating for children under thirteen (13) years old with an adult. 2. Tokyo Haneda is the only airport I can think of where I have to pick up and check baggage again just to clear customs. The flights were 1 hour and 45 minutes apart. With nearly an hour dedicated to getting baggage claimed and getting through customs, we barely had time to fix two of our split seats (see issue 1) and rush via a free bus route that took 6 minutes (luckily we were first stop) to get us to domestic terminal 2. We were then lucky again because we made it through security quickly and our gate happened to be right next to the security check we chose. Another side piece: Haneda Domestic Terminal 2 has four security check areas (A-D). We saw no identifying marks indicating which were closest to which gate. Our bags have already been through a bag check process. Feel free to run them through security scans. Don’t make us wait to collect them just to walk them through the customs desk and check them again."
Cons: "The fact I had to come back to Canada from Japan. Canada is ghetto."
Pros: "Staff are super kind."
Cons: "The fact that my feet got very swollen (twice their normal size) due to the small space - that had the passenger to my right sleeping on top of my right side."

Pros: "Everything was excellent, and we even arrived 30 minutes earlier than scheduled..... super."

The Kayak website is excellent and I wouldn’t hesitate to use it again - $1,000 cheaper for the flight from Moscow to Singapore than what I could get direct from Singapore Airlines! Well done Kayak!"
Cons: "Cabin little bit cold"
Cons: "Food was terrible , crew were rude, there were delays due to airline problems at both ends of the flight, there was a complete lack of communication about the problems and how long the delays were going to be. Handling of missed connections was abysmal... Overall extremely disappointing."

Pros: "Everything SIA stood for, we experienced it, despite the unfortunate delay which the ground crew couldn't have done much about."

Cons: "leg space"
Pros: "business seats were excellent"
Cons: "all was good"
Cons: "Crew woke me up from deep sleep to raise seatback for meal service. Sleep versus food?? Should prioritise sleep every time on night flights."
Cons: "Food not hood"
Cons: "Boarding at Singapore airport was shocking, as we had to wait 6 hours for our flight. Rating low to the crew mainly because of the ground staff as they were not very communicative to begin with about the explanation for our delay. Only when the passengers got a bit more vocal about wanting explanations, they started giving us a bit more information. All estimated times given for boarding the flight were incorrect by a big margin! Seemed more like they were giving shorter wait time for boarding just to please the passengers, where as they were well aware of how long the wait would be."
Pros: "Crew members were very friendly n helpful."
Pros: "The flight was carried out by Lufthansa. The staff was very polite and helpful."
Pros: "I liked there was entertainment"
Cons: "It was an old tired plane"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and whole on ground process was efficient."
Cons: "Aircraft not as clean as expected from a flight departing from their home port. Can't put my finger on it, but standards have slipped for slipped for SQ, albeit from a very high standard."
Pros: "The on-board crew was polite and humble. Food served was delicious and the flight reached on time."
Cons: "The flight was quite old, was a bit surprised as the route seems very busy. Our seat 36J and K interestingly had no windows. First time flew on a flight with no window row."
Pros: "Friendly crew, efficient boarding"
Cons: "Food not good and inefficient service, very old plane and entertainment system doesn't work properly, below expectations for such a good airline"
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"
Cons: "Kids playing and out of control and the flight attendants wouldn't do anything."
Cons: "I reserved a window seat on this site but was given a middle row instead when I checked in."

Cons: "Don't change anything!"
Pros: "Food, movies, support, were all wonderful."
Pros: "Staff were awesome. given that my wife and son both had food poisoning."

Pros: "The staff were helpful, once I had complained enough."
Cons: "Aircraft was old, tired, and uncomfortable. The seat of my chair was not attached. There were huge comms boxes below every 2nd seat so zero legroom. Screens were so old they were unwatchable and tiny. Air Asia provides a superior service for a fraction of the price."
Pros: "Very nice crew."
Cons: "Why are the slippers/socks not distributed before take off or already in the seat pocket? Why is the food order taken after take of and not before? Why does singapore airline have old seats I new planes? What happened to the earlier leader? Friendly staff alone does not make the deal. And given ticket prices SQ is not attractive any more for me."
Pros: "service, good TV quality and good movie selection"
Cons: "sound quality with headphones was horrible"
Pros: "Crew and boarding were efficient"
Cons: "Choice to have meal immediately after takeoff or just before landing. I chose to have it just after take-off but didn't expect not to have any breakfast. Not fun leaving the plane hungry."
Pros: "Friendly and approachable"
Pros: "Great staff. Aircrafts has more leg room. The food and entertainment was good as well."
Pros: "The ground staff in Sydney!"
Cons: "From the moment we checked in in Singapore there was no service. Having travelled first class and Economy before with Singapore I was very disappointed with Business class. My husband and daughter were in First Class. The service was below average to say the least - more training required from check in to on board - (in Sydney the staff on the ground went above and beyond) In Singapore it was very fake and contained no sincerity. The lounge itself was also ordinary compared to others, no Amenity kits or PJs in business class - even Virgin Australia has that! I was so excited to be travelling Singapore again given past experiences but now Im not sure I will want to fly them again."
Pros: "Top notch service and experience. Up there with EVA Air as the best I’ve ever seen."
Cons: "Baggage delivery took very long in Hong Kong. Bags were coming off 35 minutes after the first bag came off."
Pros: "This flight and seat was definitely more comfortable than going to HongKong- space was ver cramped before."
Cons: "Vegetarian meals can be better, breakfast eggs get over cooked and rice also."
Pros: "Can i request for a food that us not pork? I don't eat pork nor shrimp, i will be traveling on the 5th of January again and i don't want that we will be starving again for the second time since last time we never eat for they don't have anything substitute for pork. Hope they will serve some chicken or beef for not everyone will eat pork and to starve while on the plane is not acceptable for we paid for it. Thanks"
Cons: "Extremely bad service at the ticket counter. Really disappointed, really disappointed"
Pros: "Service and food."
Pros: "The flight departed and arrived on time."
Cons: "The plane was not the same plane I booked travel on. They changed it, so if it’s the 777 then it is basically widebody short haul seating in business, with a lay flat price! The seats are old and don’t work well. This has been an issue on all the flights I’ve taken between Tokyo and HKG."
Pros: "Crew are friendly"
Cons: "Flight was late, seat tray was dirty, and entertainment system hard to use."
Pros: "Service was outstanding"
Cons: "It’s not the airline fault that our flight was delayed so many times. A 8 hour trip took us 13 hours."
Pros: "They serve Baileys. I had a treble and then slept for 8 hours."
Cons: "I was served by the sassiest member of cabin crew. I think he thinks he’s doing us a favour by giving us such luxuries as water and food"
Pros: "Food& Beverage :)"
Cons: "No WiFi on plane. Major draw back"
Cons: "It’s front row business class. First of CX needs to be upgraded like the 777-300R, full recline , 4 seats in one row instead of 7. Specifically seat 12c front rower, when the foot rest comes up, there is no room for your feet, if you have long legs. Very uncomfortable for an expensive ticket"
Pros: "The crew was excellent...very flexible with meal service and appropriate presence during the long 14 hour flight."
Cons: "Quality of movie options not very good."
Pros: "Everything but the seat"
Cons: "Seat configuration is not worthy of CP business class. It’s the old 777-200, either retire the plane - that would be a shame, or upgrade the seats"
Cons: "The seats seemed like they had no padding and it kept stabbing me in the back. Seat belts were so thick and hard i couldn't lean in any direction to get comfortable as it would stab me. My partner and I were also seated separately. Painful flight, disappointed."
Pros: "I traveled economy coming home and was delighted by the amenities that you never see on commercial airlines anymore. On the way to New York I upgraded to premium economy, This was such a nice experience. It was worth the up charge. And two free checked bags? That is unheard of anymore"
Cons: "When I was on the upgraded ticket, I was actually disappointed that we landed early because I was sleeping so well."
Pros: "Flight was delayed and the crew were very understanding of the inconvenience and late hour of the new arrival time."
Cons: "Seat was very uncomfortable - struggled to sleep comfortably."
Cons: "After my flight from Nanjing was delayed the next two flights to Sydney been overbooked and I was put on a flight to Melbourne to then go from there to Sydney. No Lounge access possible and no food vaucher offered. I had to ask to even get a small food vaucher. Bad!"
Pros: "Adequate leg room, which is very important in a long haul flight. Punctual."
Cons: "We had lunch and then breakfast, skipping dinner. Considering we were in the place for 14+ hours, dinner instead of either breakfast or lunch would have been good."
Cons: "Delayed flight and promised me in Chicago and in Flight that the plane in Hong Kong would wait. Now I am sitting inside the Airport waiting until morning to fly out. I will never fly with them again. LIARS!"
Pros: "Always in time for landing and take off always before schedule"
Cons: "Present long security questions and many times checkings at airport before departure specially from Hongkong"
Pros: "The usual Cathay Pacific service"
Cons: "On time departure and arrival."
Cons: "I dont like the servic guys"
Cons: "it waa just too an old plane. too noisy. dusty. even air preasure was not controlled good enough"
Cons: "Gate staff was not patient and friendly. No advanced notification before flight cancellation. Poor communication after flight cancellation. No instructions for remediation for flight cancellation only tell customer to get checked in luggage bag and go home. No initiative to handle the incident. We waited for 2 hours at the counter for explanation and information for re-arrangement for the flight. Really disappointed with this flight."
Pros: "Clean plane"
Cons: "Seat won't recline"
Pros: "Overall was Ok"
Cons: "I did ordered tea cup from flight attendants several Times but they did not remember until I went the kitchen they were eating. I had to ask them again. When one of them brought me a tea cup, she did not say anything. Is it a good service. I was seating at seat 42 G, flight numbe CX767. Thank you."
Cons: "No in-flight WiFi was disappointing."
Pros: "I liked the orange juice."
Cons: "There were no interesting movies. There was no internet connection"
Pros: "Excellent service, lucked out into a flight that wasn't full for once and was able to sleep."
Cons: "Food could have been better. Pasty potatoes and soft vegetables. Ice cream though :)"
Cons: "Flight delayed by 4 hrs. Food was horrendous."
Pros: "Two security checks, one at the door of the plane where they take bottles of water that have been purchased after passengers have passed through immigration and security make boarding very slow. There is no priority for Premium. The staff are efficient but service is basic. No sign of staff except when they are serving food. Seats are fine for a day flight. The food is very ordinary and some dishes were not available."
Cons: "Not a lot of choice in entertainment. Some programs have been on there for years. Premium economy is not worth the extra money."
Pros: "More leg room, incline on seats, blanket, pillow."
Cons: "All the adverts on Premium Economy with Cathay Pacific are inaccurate. It is NOT your secluded compartment. The curtain to economy is ALWAYS kept open...NO privacy. Food is EXACTLY SAME as economy. In LAX had to REMIND them that Premium Economy has priority boarding. There is no champagne on arrival at your seat...you have to ASK for it. Crew is always HURRIED. When you ask for a beverage or a snack, hostess and stewards have ATTITUDE. it's like they are doing a big FAVOR. Really??? we spent lots of EXTRA MONEY to be in this class. Restroom was difficult to access. Overall MAJOR DISAPPOINTMENT"
Cons: "Flight was scheduled to leave 8:30 AM and we ended leaving 12:45 PM!!!"
Pros: "Able to sleep. Arrived safely."
Cons: "I accidentally sat in the wrong seat and had settled in comfortably, when a crew member pointed it out, I quickly got up and made my way to my seat. However someone was sitting there. The crew member told me that since the person had settled in I'd have to sit in another seat and pointed to yet another seat. Needless to say I was very confused and more than a little ticked with the inconsistent behaviour. Things didn't get any better when they defended their approach instead of simply acknowledging the problem."
Pros: "Crew was great, entertainment was diverse, blankets were comfortable, and food was good. I think I'll make Cathay Pacific my airline for East Asia US travel."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about it improve. It was an easy, efficient process to get on and off the plain."
Pros: "Great seat size loads of leg space and lovely flight attendants"
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Waiting time , as the flight was not scheduled on time. Also there was no vegeterian food from Honk Kong to SFO."
Cons: "To the guy in 26G, it was incredible how you ignored three flight attendants when they asked you to put away your laptop. You were so obsessed with your own self interests that the general safety of your fellow passengers was not important. That must have been some email that you had to keep typing even as the plane was pulling away from the gate. So important in fact that you didn't touch your laptop for another two+ hours. But you did get it out again and proceeded to pull the same stunt as we descended. Stunning behaviour. I enjoyed how you convinced the crew to put your laptop in the overhead bin both times. I believe the clincher was the four carry on bags you had with you. Priceless. Guess you should be grateful you weren't on a US domestic flight. But I'm sure you would have turned the story away from you and on to the crew."
Cons: "Food and crew members was awful i never had such a bad experience with any airline I would never flight with this airline anymore"
Pros: "I travel Canada-Australia a lot. Best trip so far."
Pros: "The extra space was nice, but expected as I paid for it."
Cons: "My wife's and my seats were sticky and difficult to recline. my headphone socket had lose fitting and neither the airline supplied headphone nor my Bose QC headphone were able to work constantly. The service from the two hosts was poor with very little to no engagement or pleasantries. I compare this with Premium Economy class flights with other airlines I have flown and I will elect not to fly Cathy Pacific again. I also found the food and the service below average. No option for wine on this flight, just red or white."
Pros: "I booked the flight at an excellent price. Service is always good."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the cheap price meant my husband and I couldn't sit together for the 15+ hour flight."
Pros: "Seats are comfort"
Cons: "Considering travelling on business class, there were no more dinner for 2 people after 1 hour of sleeping. I though dinner should be on held when people were sleeping in business class. In fact, I am wrong."
Pros: "Boarding and security is very efficient at Changi - other airports should take note."
Pros: "The plane were nice and clean. most of the crew are very nice the entertainment are great so many different show that we can watch I like that they have noodle cup serving during the flight upon request in case passengers don't get hungry at the time they serve the main meals ."
Cons: "First of all The restroom are so tiny I just wish in the future that the airplan will have bigger restroom it though even 1 people to fit but I have kid and it though with baby ,toddler or overweight people. I usually travel with my son who's 3 I been flying many different airlines and I know in every airlines the most annoying is the tiny restroom I don't even want to go in there. 2nd of all Most of the cabin crew are very nice and very polite some aren't when you hit the service button you are expected someone that willing to help not the face like what the heck you want from me??? It's the long flight I understand and I'm exhausted too I just need to see someone willing to help and with a big smile not grumpy face. One last thing is the food. I'm not sure who's think about the menu for kids I'm not sure it is my son or the food But he never touch the food only thing he ate are the dinner roll I hope I can see some change for kid menu pick somethings that most kid like to eat maybe? Thank you Nadia M"
Cons: "In entertainment no good Hindi options were there"
Pros: "The entertainment on the touch screen is pretty good. Economy seats are pretty good and have decent leg room."
Cons: "The world is turning to vegetarianism and I think that all flights should now have a veg and non-veg option by default and it should not be a necessary special meal as such. The Ovo-lacto meal that was given to my wife and I was OK compared to the actual vegetarian option that was present on the menu. The airline should inform passengers in advance that a certain leg of the journey would have vegetarian options."
Cons: "Too rigid on the weight of hand carry luggages. 7kg (including the case/bag) is less than other airlines."
Cons: "Check-in was poorly organized in Narita. Bag Drop off only took longer than regular check-in"
Cons: "Food options!"
Cons: "Good everything"
Cons: "It is just a long flight and the middle economy seats are what they are."
Cons: "Seats too small. We were unable to choose seats ourselves; it got spit to of a computer. Flight was delayed about 50 minutes. Food had a lot of pasta, for some reason, we were not able to choose food. Would have chosen vegetarian."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly."
Cons: "There is just no room to move in those seats. We were packed in like sardines."
Cons: "Some of the courses in the dinner were excellent like the soup and appetizer. Other items were off, like the entree. Wine selection could improve."
Pros: "The whole Experience was Amazing. From Comfortable Seat, Great Flight Crew, Tastey Food"
Pros: "Services verygood"
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."
Cons: "These are some of the narrowest seats I've experienced in a full-sized airplane. Please note, I am a normal sized human."
Pros: "Delayed for 24 hours with no compensation, please advise where I can file a complaint."
Cons: "Delayed for 24 hours with no compensation, please advise where I can file a complaint."
Cons: "fter serving a meal, it was 7 hours later we received any beverages. the cabin air was very dehydrating and everyone started coughing because we had been given no water. this is how people get sick and spread diseases. the plane definitely needed to consider hydration. and when they finally served us the meal, they didnt offer water rather coffee or tea and i had to ask for water and juice. the cabin temperature also fluctuated from hot to cold."
Pros: "Everything! Well organized boarding procedure (but it helps when the other passengers are well mannered, unlike flying in the USA) and started boarding EXACTLY the time they stated on the notice boards. Friendly crew and very helpful! Tasty meal albeit a bit lean on offerings on the tray."
Pros: "the price and the food great, the crew are friendly"
Cons: "only 2 meal service on a 13 hour flight feom la to taipeh. no snacks in between. got hungry on that flight!"
Pros: "China Airlines has generally been a step above the average. The name is a bit represented as this is really a Taiwan Run and based airline that has been influenced by the western business practice."
Pros: "I like entertainment and food.. taste is good.."
Pros: "People are nice..."
Cons: "Foods are not good"
Cons: "Entertainment selection movies could be expanded."
Cons: "Boarding left on time, but there were staff members frustrated and yelling at passengers to get on the plane. Normally I am not a picky eater, but I could not eat the food on the flight. It tasted like dog food"
Cons: "They damaged my luggage"
Pros: "Loved the movie selection"
Cons: "Not too many vegan options"
Pros: "Customer Care details and safety placed first. Restrooms always cleaned. Attentive staff."

Pros: "The airline attendants were very friendly."
Cons: "We had a free movie on a 3.5 hour flight but not on the 6 and 9 hour flights. It's time to step it up for long haul flights!"
Pros: "It really was a fine flight. The complaints are minor."
Cons: "The seat-back entertainment systems were more annoying than the usual ones. Hard to read words on the display. The drink service used quite small cups, smaller than the ones that seem to be universal otherwise, and she only filled it 2/3 of the way!"
Pros: "Crew was professional and very courteous. Helpful staff. Nice smooth flight over."
Cons: "offer water more often"
Pros: "Enjoyed the food and entertainment. Leg room was a bit tighter than what I'm used to. Otherwise decent flight."

Cons: "the air hostesses could have been a bit more accommodating, welcoming, pleasant, willing and smiling."
Pros: "I liked most of the crew. They were courteous and attentive. They were also very helpful in getting passengers situated and seated. I also like that when I had an issue with a crew member a manager and her boss both came to talk to me about what happened and offered apologies. They handled the situation with respect and class."
Cons: "There were two things I didn't like. First was that my on board entertainment set top was not working and I had to change seats. Once in a new seat though I was good and comfortable until a crew member had issues with my placement in an empty row that he wanted to use later in the flight to take a nap. What he did next was not nice, lacked communication and almost ruined the long flight for me. If it wasn't for the rest of the crew being great and his managers apologizing and listening to the full complaint I would probably have decided never to take China airlines again. Will I fly China airlines again? Yes, I will."
Pros: "On time, friendly people, airplane not too crowded, vegetarian food was good, luggage unloaded quickly so little waiting upon arrival in Taiwan."
Cons: "Carry on luggage weighed 9 Kg and they told me I had to remove some things. Suitcase was standard carry-on size, fit well into the display frame. I had plenty of room in the two checked in bags but they had already been processed and moved out on the conveyer belt. Never heard of such as small allowance for carry-on luggage, at least on Delta, United and the other airlines I generally fly. My impression was that this rule was not much enforced since I saw many carry-on bags bigger than mine and judging by the effort I saw when people put them overhead, they likely were heavier than mine."
Pros: "Space was good. Seats were just right space from one another"
Cons: "We were assigned seats apart from my companion"
Pros: "Friendly staff. Food was good."
Pros: "The food was decent and well timed. The entertainment was great. Personal tv. Great seat in the exit row."

Pros: "Boarding process very efficient Slightly more leg room"
Cons: "Seat slightly narrower, slightly more uncomfortable Nice soft blankets Cabin too warm"
Pros: "The girls at the China Airline counter saw i was really worried and freaking out about my flight and they helped me to the fullest."
Cons: "I couldn't check in early cause Kayak gives a confirmation number and nothing else. I had to wait in the counter line instead of skipping it like i would do with most travel sites. I was very close to missing my flight but thank god they had a delay. I also left early for problems like these and still had difficulties. And it's impossible to call Kayak, especially if you live in Japan like me."
Cons: "For a long flight the seat is uncomfortable, it needs to be more comfy and size could be better."
Pros: "I liked that this particular flight wasn't fully booked because it meant that I had space to relax, including the use of the a provided blanket and pillow. I also enjoyed the food and drink options as well."
Cons: "I didn't like that I was unable to check-in to the flight until just 2.5 hours before my flight. I like to be at the airport early in case of any mishaps or hangups, and not being able to check in until that point just made me feel a little pressed for time."
Cons: "not enough toilets for a full flight - I had to wait a long time each time I had to go. The food was good, however, I didn't feel like I got a full meal. I ordered gluten free and did not get a substitute for bread in the evening or morning meal and didn't even get yogurt in the morning. I was glad I brought some bars with me just in case."
Pros: "Seat, entertainment, service"
Cons: "Not on time. Flight delay not due to weather but due to ground crew didn't have everything ready for plane to depart. 1.5 hrs wait at terminal and 1/2 HR wait inside plane."

Pros: "The flight crew and services were adequate and hospitable. Boarding and landing time were on time without delays."

Pros: "Genuine, warm and welcoming crew. Clean and spacious cabin. Very tasty vegetarian breakfast."
Pros: "Movie Selection was great"
Cons: "Boarding was a disorganized mess. Different groups in lines and no clear announcement. Food was plastic, even in Business, to the point that I just stopped and snacked on breakfast bars. Crew was uninspired, at best. Lots of shoulder shrugging during any discussion on issues. One even complained about the flight length (we were not delayed). Landed and waited for 10 minutes for jetway to a bus then a 10 minute ride to customs. Good thing they are a near monopoly."

Cons: "We were very disappointed in the breakfast and ate little of it. The scrambled egg didn't taste convincing. There were stale potato wedges - luke warm, the sausage resembled devon . The yogurt, muffin and juice were OK. My 2 cups of tea were VERY GOOD. The flight was very COLD. After being in tropical Fiji particularly noticeable ."
