Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The lunch and dinner menu was excellent"
Cons: "more bathrooms."
Pros: "The trip was horrible we have to sit separately three places."
Pros: "I will only use Singapore Air for anywhere they fly. They really care about their passangers, 2 checked bags 1 carryon no charge, no airline does that. They constantly feed u & alcoholic beverages all at no extra charge. Flight attendants always have a smile on their flight. In flight entertainment was great, touch screen and remote controller. They supply earbuds, socks, toothbrush and paste."
Cons: "Absolutely no complaints"
Pros: "everything good"
Cons: "need new toilet"
Cons: "the food was mediocre at best - had to ask for water couple of times"
Pros: "Boarding was good and the flight time was shorter than expected."
Cons: "My son did not like any of the meal selections between beef and fish. We asked for a ramen noodle cup instead that the flight crew denied they had, only after seeing them offer it to another family just seconds before. I was very disappointed!! I believe the flight attendant knew of my concerns because she started asking me if the service was ok. If your doing a good job, then you won’t have to ask."
Cons: "We were not provided vegetarian food on two legs of journey although we had earlier informed the airlines."
Pros: "I booked regular economy and flew to Tokyo that way, but put a bid in for premium economy for the flight home and got it. It's not a big upgrade (bigger display panel, a little more leg room, seat tilt and it has a leg rest) but those things made the flight for me."
Cons: "I don't have much on the down side front aside from the usual "would like more leg room" and "more seat tilt" so nothing new to report"
Pros: "All the crews were friendly and helpful!"
Cons: "I wanted to watch Hindi movies with subtitles..."
Pros: "The service, kind and pleasant."
Pros: "Personal TV"
Pros: "The crew was very kind and helpful."
Cons: "My daughter had the vegetarian oriental - and it was basically a ball of slim. My son had the lactose free meal and it was broccoli and potatoes. We switched our return flight meals to the regular in-flight meal. It was better, but not great."
Pros: "Both ways I had a whole row to myself, great attendants, in flight screens and charging stations at your seat, frequent meals"
Cons: "Clean bathroom trash more often"
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant!"
Cons: "Cabin area warm for a 9.5 hour flight! Food selection was not much."
Pros: "I always felt attended to, great customer service, clean and best bang for your buck"
Pros: "The crew were all very polite, well mannered, and helpful."
Cons: "As a strict vegan, I had ordered a vegan meal. I was given a meal labeled as vegan, though it in fact was not. I reported the incident to customer service, who responded only with apathy. :("
Pros: "Great food!!"
Pros: "The graciousness of sraff, entertainment options, cleanliness of the aircraft. Always willing to make adjustments to accommodate."
Cons: "Its unfortunate that your staff sometimes do not get treated with the respect they deserve from a guest"
Pros: "Great food and fantastic service"
Cons: "Needs more legroom"
Pros: "The staff was amazing and attentive. My surfboards arrived safe and sound... And on time. I will most definitely fly Singapore Airlines again, as often as I can. Thank you."
Pros: "Service was outstanding. The staff was attentive and helpful from start to finish."
Cons: "Not all the food was to my personal taste. I understand however that being on a flight to and from Asia would lean toward choices more characteristic to the region."
Pros: "loved the hot towels and the entertainment provided"
Pros: "I have never encountered nicer more professional staff. They always had smiles and seemed to really enjoy their jobs. I always tell friends if they have a chance to fly Singapore Airlines to do it. They won't regret it. Especially on long flights."
Cons: "I was in economy class but I would have liked more leg room. My knees where hurting from having little leg room."
Pros: "Comfortable seats."
Cons: "We were supposed to fly back to Los Angeles from Tokyo on Wednesday, August 24th. We got to Tokyo Narita a little later than planned due to the Narita Express train being delayed. I had received emails that our flight had changed gates, and was then delayed, but when my sister and I went to check into our flight, we were told we were unable to board because it was too late. I thought it was absurd because the flight had not even started boarding, and I had gotten an email saying it was delayed. We tried to reason with them, but they would not let us on the flight. It was imperative that we got back to Los Angeles on Wednesday, but all our plans were ruined due to them bumping us off the flight. My sister had a connecting flight to Boston, which she then had to reschedule and was charged for. We were stuck another night in Tokyo, where we had to spend money on a hotel. The Singapore Airlines attendants eventually informed us that we could get on a flight the next day. This delayed us by 24 hours, which was highly inconvenient. It was also especially unnecessary since due to the flight being delayed, we would have absolutely been able to make it. I do not appreciate being bumped off of a flight due to airlines wanting to make more money, especially being stuck overseas. Its not like it was a domestic flight where we could just hop on another one in the next few hours, this totally derailed all of our plans. I do not appreciate the inflexibility of the Singapore Airlines agents, and this is not an experience that makes me want to recommend flying with Singapore Airlines. I appreciate that they did not charge us, however it was a major inconvenience that could have simply been avoided by better customer service and understanding."
Pros: "I have always enjoyed flying on Singapore Airlines. There were no delays on my connecting flight coming out of Tokyo to Los Angeles. The huge plane was like flying in a small "transportable town.""
Cons: "I had a long connection wait in Tokyo, but that was not too bad since I got a great price on the round trip ticket - less than $700!"
Pros: "The food. The nice crew members. The comfortability and service. The tech and entertainment available."
Pros: "I like that I could check in 2 suitcase and able to choose my sitting when it's available."
Pros: "Crew and staff were great and accommodating."
Pros: "The movies"
Cons: "I had no space in my seat for 10 hours The internet I purchased was a scam that last for 15 mins It took forever to deplane The food was horrible"
Pros: "Wonderful service. Truly caring cabin crew that go out of their way to make your flight as comfortable as possible. Other airlines have a lot to learn from Singapore Airlines."
Pros: "The entertainment selection was decent."
Cons: "The crew left a lot to be desired. Very disappointed as when I flew last year, the crew was superb. I'm not a demanding flyer. I really hesitate to even call a flight attendant whenever I fly, so I'm not high maintenance. Incident 1: The flight from DPS to Singapore the flight attendant scoffed when I asked for socks saying that economy passenger don't receive socks on this flight. I didn't appreciate the suggestion that my class wasn't worthy of meeting my request. Her response felt condescending. Her continued interaction with me consistently felt short and mildly irritated with me. I didn't understand why. Honestly, I won't fly Singapore again because of this. Flights are not cheap for me. I spend the extra few hundred dollars because of great reviews and a superior experience last year. I will not be spoken to in a condescending way. On the second leg of my travel from Singapore to LAX the flight attendant once again said that I will not be given socks? Why, thought? I'm traveling for over 30 hours. Have things changed? Second, I asked for a second ice-cream. She handed me the ice-cream then took it out my hand and told me she would have to come back to me. The galley that was suppose to have food didn't seem to have anything. Was I missing something. Be fail on many level."
Pros: "The flight was an hour shorter than i expected. The staff was around and attentive. I felt like i won the lottery with flights"
Cons: "Not one complaint"
Pros: "The crew was amazing!!"
Cons: "This trip was not quite as excellent as my flights on Singapore Airlines usually are; however, I cannot say for sure there was much that airline staff could have done to change this. A great deal of turbulence earlier in the flight made it difficult to enjoy the food. Also, there was a sewage-like smell that wafted through the air periodically - this could have been a child in the surrounding seats, though. Both of these issues seem difficult for the airline staff to address, however, unless the smell actually came from a problem with the ventilation system. The staff was exceptionally helpful and good-natured, though, which made the biggest difference. Thank you so much."
Pros: "I would definitely fly with Singapore again. Their staff is super attentive, they have lots of options for in-flight entertainment and things generally went smoothly. I didn't sign up for a special allergy meal ahead of time but they were able to accommodate me anyways."
Cons: "The food was overcooked, mushy and tasted old. The seats were small and didn't recline very much. I think these things are kind of normal now on most airlines."
Pros: "every thing was ex best flight I have ever went on. I would rec your services to anyone."
Pros: "The crew was attentive, hard working and pleasant."
Cons: "Like most airlinesuccessful the space was cramped."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Pros: "I loved the entertainment, the kind staff, and the extras they gave out to try to make us as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "My boyfriend is very tall, 6'6. On the flights to and from, even though he was on he aisle side seat, it was very difficult for him to have enough room for his legs, thus making my space that much less. In the future, I think we would benefit from booking either the seat behind us for him that had more leg room, or the seats in front of us that were the first seats of all rows."
Pros: "Flight was pleasant, boarding was a tiny bit disorganized. They didn't use the groups for economy, perhaps because there was so many of us."
Pros: "No baggage charge for surfboards"
Pros: "Very pleasant, staff was always smiling and eager to help."
Pros: "Punctual, attention to detail. Top notch service."
Cons: "Fed us too much and quick. Causing half of the food on my tray go to waste."
Pros: "Smooth flight, good quality entertainment"
Cons: "My flight to Narita was fabulous, so I was surprised to find the return flight home filled with a condescending crew, terrible food, and a broken entertainment system. We had requested a Muslim meal on the previous flight, but the food was so spicy and smelly that we chose to go with the normal faire on the way back. I changed it on the website when I checked in online but when we arrived at the airport we were informed that the meal was still set as a muslim meal. The representative at the baggage counter called the plane and made sure that it was changed back to a normal meal. However, when it was dinner time we were presented with muslim meals. When we spoke to the head airhost to request a normal meal he said that they only carried a specific number and an leftover meals were for the crew only and that we had to eat the muslim meals or have sandwiches. We requested the sandwiches - the muslim meal was too spicy and had made us sick before. The "sandwiches" were pretty much two slabs of dry bread with some mayo slapped on. Disgusting and dry. I wish they could have made an exception for us or provided us with something edible. It was a long flight and we were starving by the time breakfast rolled around. The crew was condescending and cold. My entertainment system lacked functionality; some of the buttons on my remote were broken."
Pros: "First time to travel with Singapore Airlines and we were impressed with the overall service for economy class. Food was good, entertainment package offered multiple options. Flight attendants very helpful."
Pros: "The food and drinks were great on our flight there. Leg room was the same (cramped). However, on the flight back, the food was pretty bad and for some reason the service was also bad. After requesting a drink I got on the way to Tokyo, I was told that they would make it and come back. No one came back with the drink. The second time they came around with orange juice. I asked just for water since I was over the drink. They said they would get it and never came back. I had to use the call button and ask again for water."
Cons: "tiny seats with no leg room at all, especially when the seat in front of me wasn't upright, in which case I couldn't even use my tray table because it was practically right up against me."
Pros: "The service, as always, is excellent on Singapore Airlines. The cabin crew could not be more attentive to passenger needs!"
Cons: "This flight was an Airbus and it is certainly much smaller and more cramped than a Boeing 777. I am only five feet twou inches and trim, but even for me the discomfort factor was very high. That is not the fault of the crew, of course!"
Cons: "Preferential treatment by crew, some passengers favored over others, loud conversations between crew and passengers."
Pros: "Nice airlines."
Cons: "All airlines are probably the same, but economy seating is too tight if you're not a small person."
Cons: "Plane had no fuel so we had to wait 2 hours For it to refuel elsewhere. Then the crew ran overtime so we had to wait 3.5 hours for a new crew. From exactly where the plane had refuelled"
Pros: "Kind crew Left late but made up time in the air"
Cons: "Very crammed seats No entertainment even though I called and asked before the flight and was told there was"
Pros: "Flight crew friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Tiny, uncomfortable seating, many screaming children in a very small area and nearly everything on Hawaiian Airlines costs lots of money. Not worth the high ticket price by any means."
Pros: "Complimentary items"
Cons: "Purchased headphones for a screen that didn’t work."
Cons: "I wish the airline goes back to serving real meals for breakfasts and dinners on the longer flights like going to the islands & returning to mainland. We were expecting warm decent meals like what they use to serve in the past rather than snack type breakfast and sandwiches & chips for dinner, on coach with extended leg room. This is one of the enticing parts of flying this airline."
Pros: "Hawaiian Airlines is fantastic. Great crew, great service. Loved the bbq chicken sandwich and chips for free. And the free rum punch drink!"
Cons: "Nothing was bad. It was fantastic."
Pros: "I like the space and comfort of the seats"
Cons: "That you had to pay to watch a movie.american doesn’t charge for that. But overall it was a good experience"

Cons: "No vegetarian options, no entertainment options"
Cons: "Sure don't like paying for baggage and watching movies! Those items should both be free!!!!!"
Pros: "Entertainment available."
Cons: "Seats recline into your lap. Very bad... Flight was way too hot, temperature wise, and no personal Air fans."
Cons: "Boarding was the usual slow line of people trying to stuff their bags in the overheads -- not much they can do to improve that I guess. Disembarking seemed to take longer than usual. Didn't open the door right away."
Pros: "The seats were amazing... very comfortable."
Cons: "The flight attendants were unfriendly, cold, and seemed very annoyed. The entertainment was VERY pricey - that was an unwelcome surprise for such a long flight. I would rather bring my own food and be able to distract myself with a series of complimentary movies."
Pros: "Relaxing music on the plane, extremely friendly staff, efficient, and comfortable. The comfort level was basic - not a super updated aircraft - but overall a great flight experience."
Cons: "Everything was great. Aircraft wasn't super updated but no problem!"
Pros: "I liked that they serve meal in a short intrastate flights.Service was wonderful."
Cons: "screaming and unruly kids and their parents who think it's cute that they act so totally out of control."
Pros: "No food and uncomfortable flight"
Cons: "The flight with Jet blue to Los Angelos was so uncomfortable"
Cons: "Too strong a/c. So cold."
Pros: "I like the crew coming back from Hawaii. They were very friendly and accommodating and had a sense of humor. This was on the 2:50 pm flight from Honolulu to LAX. I did like having a meal on the plane that was free and complimentary wine. Thanks!"
Cons: "I did not like the check-in process at the Honolulu airport. It was a hot mess. Lots of flights going out at 2:00 pm. and the lines were confusing! Very few were directing us. We saw big signs that said: step 1, step 2, and step 3 but no real designation for anyone to follow. TSA pre-check should be clearer. If you are going to another island or if you are going to the Mainland, be clearer which line to get in. Bigger signs please. This was a chaotic self check-in. Thank goodness I came to the airport 3 hours early. Much better organization at the LAX airport."
Pros: "Smooth and comfortable flight. Nice hot food!"
Cons: "There are no free movies."
Pros: "Flights were not full, so lots of space to stretch out. Really makes a difference. I wish flights weren't so crowded/more space all the time ;("
Cons: "Should be more free entertainment options."
Pros: "Very courteous staff."
Pros: "loved the staff!"
Pros: "Staff were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "There was a long line to TSI check in. We almost miss our flight."
Pros: "Good customer service and fast departures"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Nothing- 4 hour delay on the Tarmac and they did nothing to advocate for us getting off the plane or keeping us updated."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Kahului airport is difficult to navigate and no internet or charging stations"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and helpful as needed. We arrived early and were kept apprised of the difficulty in getting a gate upon arrival."
Cons: "The food was terrible. There was no movies on a 5.5 hour flight although they do advertise one on the website."
Pros: "There was a little more room in the premium economy. First class looked like a tiny upgrade, would not spring for it. Plane was new so that was good. Hard to recommend this flight."
Cons: "Even with upgrade to premium economy there was no way to sleep on this overnight flight. Free entertainment was limited to a few tv shows and old movies, everything else cost money. Not sure if there was beverage service, for sure not even a snack. Virgin experience way better."
Pros: "The flight itself, and the onboard crew."
Cons: "Poor signage and no assistance to print baggage claim tickets. Poor signage at the gates, confused passengers at gate 8, no place to sit in the shade. Other passengers taking up several seats with their bags. No personnel in the secured gate area until time to board. No assistance available to help someone with knee problems climb the stairs to board."
Pros: "Jennifer at the luggage department was exceptional made a bad experience somewhat tolerable"
Cons: "After boarding the plane and settling in, we were told to disembark because of mechanical issues. We then waited in the lobby sitting on the ground while they prepared another plan for us to depart. After a hour-and-a-half delay we finally departed but when we landed at LAX I discovered that they had lost my luggage instead of arriving at 9:40 and being on my way home, it is now 1 o'clock in the morning and I'm still not home because I had to fill out forms and deal with missing luggage. NOT HAPPY WITH MY EXPERIENCE!"
Pros: "They allow 25 lb carry on unlike other airlines and have in flight entertainment."
Pros: "ambiance great, crew was all helpful with a smile, leg room much better than United. food was good though small portions but that is good.complimentary tv selections also good."
Pros: "Experienced pilot with smooth takeoff and landing. Nice flight attendents that were respectful of those who were sleeping. Comfortable seats and headrest that is foldable for possible sleeping."

Cons: "Limited entertainment unless you pay more."

Pros: "On time. Handicap treatment"
Cons: "Legroom. With such little space, seats should not be able to recline."
Pros: "They serve real food and don't charge you extra!"
Pros: "The seats were comfy at least"
Cons: "No free snacks. I can't believe that on a 6 hour flight we weren't Given at least a bag of chips free of charge : $3.00 freaking dollars for chips!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very sweet and happy and the plane itself was nice and new. The complimentary meals were a huge plus as well"
Pros: "Faster than scheduled. It's creative to combine Hawaii's landscapes and activities in the safety video before plane takes off."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy."
Cons: "Seas are horribly cramped making for a very uncomfortable red eye experiences. Cabin crew were police but nowhere near friendly."
Pros: "There just seemed to be very little leg room for anyone who is average sized. The seats are kid and petite adequate but not the average height person. The seat cushion was also lacking for a 6 hour flight. Overall the flight was great and the service was excellent."
Cons: "Not enough leg room."
Pros: "The flight was amazing. Checking in was easy and the code worked easily. The airplane seemed new and the attendants were super nice and had great attitudes. I will fly more often with Hawaiian Airlines"

Pros: "Great staff"
