Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "When the seat folded down (business class) into a bed, it gave almost a twin size bed that was flat."
Cons: "Being in business class, I had expected the food to be better. Also, the red wines offered were only a sub selection of the ones in the menu."
Pros: "Crew , amenities and food"
Pros: "Flight time shorter than scheduled. Food good. Crew great."
Cons: "Somewhat limited recent release movies compared to Emirates."
Pros: "Average flight"
Cons: "Seats on this aircraft have very upright seats. Not very comfy"
Pros: "More space then previous flights. Attendants very pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "Ran out of the food choices by the time they reached me. Had to make do with what was left."
Pros: "I have tall family members and they had enough legroom even at the back of the plane. Service was excellent. Snacks and drinks were regular on offer even between meal. Very nice, professional staff even after 13 hours of flight. Just excellent. Thank you for this very pleasant experience. Will definitely fly Singapore Airlines again."
Cons: "There is room for improvement with the special meals. The non gluten brun was very hard. In general it would be nice if passengers could pre-order from a set selection of foods online what they would like on their tray. This would hopefully lower the amount of food that sadly goes to waste. Also it would be nice to have gluten free snacks on board. Flying with celiac disease is not easy."
Cons: "Everything was fine."
Pros: "As a frequent flyer, I have found out that the few dollars i spend more on SQ is well worth it"
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: "The cabin crew were fantastic. Food was abundant. Most boarding systems worked well. Choosing seats was confusing on website so we were allocated seating. The newer planes had a fantastic touch screen entertainment system. The seats on the newer planes were much more comfortable and roomy"
Cons: "The small seats are squishy on the older planes. The entertainment system on the older planes were dated and difficult to use. I felt sick after the flight to UK but felt fine coming home after one long flight on a newer plane."
Cons: "Ran out of options for dinner and could not eat the macaroni cheese they had on offer, so got 2 small packets of nuts instead...international flight running out of food options? Pretty slack. A part of the interior wall fell off onto my foot upon take off and I had to hold it in place for a while until a hostess came....doesn’t give you the best feeling when the plane starts breaking on take off. One of the male stewards was appalling towards a young mum I sat next too...too the extent of giving her dirty looks because she spilled a bit of water on the seat and then told her she had to pack everything away she was using, including the baby wipes! I stepped in and told him how this was not ok and all other staff members were helpful and he was making this Mum upset. He should not be working for such a people friendly reputable airline! Maybe Jetstar instead! Was appalled at the entire flight to be honest!"
Pros: "USB and plug for every seat, reasonable leg space and leg rest, good food choice and very attentive crew."
Cons: "No negative points"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew. Efficient service and good boarding. Seemingly wider seats than the newer A350s."
Cons: "Positively ancient entertainment system with poor selection and bad visual quality. Ads pop up every time you go into another menu. If you're flying SIN->BNE I'd avoid the 7.20am departure, you'll get the old 777-200s rather than the A350s they run on other departures."
Cons: "When refreshments were being served they did so in a hurry for some reason and missed passengers including myself. We had to call for an attendant to serve the refreshments who seemed a little annoyed at that."
Pros: "Brand new aircraft, excellent service and food"
Cons: "J class seat, 12A window. Top of my seat curled around my sides, which blocked vision thru 1.5 of the 3 windows I had access to. The enclosure also protuded into my left bicep when I had my elbow resting on the arm rest. 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: "Seats more comfortable than premium economy, staff more helpful!"
Cons: "Food was ordinary"

Pros: "Staff, food and emenities great for economy class"
Cons: "Inflight entertainment wasn't as extensive as in previous years."
Cons: "Expected to have more indian movie choices."
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."

Cons: "Nothing special."
Pros: "I felt safe ( important to me) and had just the right amount of attention from staff Very comfortable"

Pros: "I've always flown Singapore airlines wherever possible. Standards are unbeatable until this flight..."
Cons: "The dinner was terrible. I am a long time customer of Singapore Airlines and I know where the standard are. The food on this flight was the worst I've seen. The starter (vermicelli) was overly salty, dry and severely undercooked. The main course was acceptable but the portion of chicken was more like side dish not main. Missing sides."
Pros: "I liked there was entertainment"
Cons: "It was an old tired plane"
Pros: "The attendants are pleasant to the eye, thats about it."
Cons: "I heard so many good things and was left disappointed. The service from staff try to help and be nice but some of them do not care at all, things like too busy to bring a beverage etc was a tad annoying. dont know if i will use them again"
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: "Crew service"
Cons: "Very old entertainment system. Poor screen visibility. Cramped"
Pros: "Personal Touch!"
Cons: "No such!"
Pros: "The staff are so friendly and helpful. Highly recommend travelling with the airline. The A380 is a great way to travel with more space in economy. I booked seats on the upper deck where there is a smaller economy cabin. Makes you feel a bit more civilised up the top!"
Cons: "Economy class isn't great for a long haul flight but the staff make it much more bearable."
Cons: "Old planes and screens."
Pros: "Sound sleep"
Pros: "The staff were helpful, once I had complained enough."

Cons: "temp on plane was freezing and even two blankets did not suffice. Everyone was really cold."

Pros: "Changed by very helpful ground staff from lousy seats to exit row at no cost."
Cons: "Entertainment interface showing its age."
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: "Good crew, but working with some tired, old equipment."
Cons: "The padding in my seat seemed to be a bit thin and became progressively more uncomfortable as the flight progressed. 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: "Arrival in Canberra was excellent."

Pros: "Comfortable seat, good entertainment options"
Pros: "The flight was delayed (both ways) and after not having flown Thai Airways for many years, I would have thought the meaning of "TG = Tomorrow Go" has been improved to "Today Go" The boarding process literally remains back in the "stone age" compared to the total modern aviation advancements!!"
Cons: "The boarding process could and must be improved!! What's the point of having modern technology like self-automated boarding machines installed at the airport and not using them? People should be boarded by zoning instead of letting people acted like this is the last flight out of Saigon!!"
Pros: "I was given an exit row at check in. Nobody tried to wake me up during the flight as sometimes happens on other airlines."
Cons: "The flight was from 3:30 am to 9:00am. We were served dinner soon after boarding, but it makes much more sense to serve a breakfast before arrival in Bangkok."
Cons: "Board royal silk/biz class first because so they can store their bags first and not have to fight with passengers from exonomy trying to pass them at same time. Very annoying and slows down everyone boarding."
Pros: "Entertainment was good."
Cons: "Complimentary polaroid Photo taking for families or kids or couples and friends. Photo can be placed in a special thai aiways frame for memory. If this is done while the flight is preparing for take off l, its gives a great start for the trip. Gifts for kids?"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 30 minutes. If it was not delayed, I'll give it good rating."

Pros: "Ok plane, food was fine too"
Cons: "No gate at home airport when there's heavy rain? Even budget airlines pay for a gate, why not a star alliance member?"

Pros: "The movie"
Cons: "Late again byt not much"
Pros: "Good service and kind staff."
Cons: "The entertainment system wasn't working and the crew didn't reboot it until half way through the flight. Any amount of movement from the seat in front of me (either from a slight adjustment from the person sitting in front of me to turbulence) and the tv would go black for a few seconds. It would also change to a red hue from time to time."

Cons: "The entertainnent system never worked, even after rebboting"

Cons: "Wow, a 747 offloaded by busses, what a ridiculous idea!"
Pros: "We didn’t crash!"
Cons: "Old plane (747). Not very attentive staff, I had to ask for a blanket 4 times before I got one. This certainly isn’t acceptable in business class. My meal choice wasn’t available. And I had to pay $50 to change my flight to a different day (again not acceptable for a business class ticket. I’ll avoid Thai airways wherever I can from now on. #avoid When I rang the Singapore Thai office they were unable to change my ticket to a new date and kept pushing me back to the online travel agent. Called Thai in Bangkok and they did it on the spot. Very inconsistent service."

Pros: "Awesome flight with great deal from kayak and thai airways. Overall service was awesome and will definately try again"
Cons: "Outdated Entertrainment system... btw, no entertainment system... safety video had so many hiccups, need to restart multiple times. First flight which did not have either Pepsi or Coke products. Only carbonated drink available is spirite.. very disappointed. Crew was not friendly.. Even when the wish for entry or say bye, attitude and face they make towards Indian looking people was very unacceptable."
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....."

I kindly requested to another staff if I can just move seat too because I am not comfortable. But request no action. The cabin crew are not that caring because I took care of the 2 passengers. I just don’t understand why they are unfriendly. I will not choose this airlines again."
Pros: "Really good food the and crew on the plane was nice."
Cons: "In the Delhi airport we never interacted with anyone from Sri Lankan Airlines because a third party was contracted to work the counters, check us in, issue boarding passes, etc... These workers were all maybe 20 years old and possessed what seemed like zero training to do their job at all. They never had any answers and just smiled while saying “I don’t know” a million times. We were corralled and moved and waited hours while they ran around doing nothing."
Pros: "Acceptable but not exceptional as expected"
Cons: "Unfortunately the it was a bumpy ride as most of the time the seat belt sign was on and crew had to discontinue services for a while. This was beyond airlines control. The crew did not distribute the Sri lankan landing cards onboard. This caused some confusions for first time travellers as they had to cone off the immigration queue and went to pick the card up and to complete. Some foreigners were unhappy about it."
Cons: "The service. The worst I have seen."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Not enough leg space, cramped seats"
Cons: "There was no uniform procedure in the flights, crew is too lazy to perform their duties. probably the first and last flying with Sri Lankan."

Pros: "Nothing really stood out. Having a pillow and blanket for every seat is a plus."

Pros: "Menu choices were surprisingly better than I thought. It had Western, Chinese and Indian vegetarian. Good work. Keep it up !"
Cons: "Part of the travel was delayed by 2 hours (SIN to COLOMBO) on 22 Dec 2017. Online check-in is bad. I cannot change the pre-selected seat because all shown taken. Must be handled at the counter. So what is the point to do online check-in."

Cons: "I had no dislikes in this trip in particular."
Pros: "Plane was not full, so I could lie down which was a great rest after such an early checkin in bangkok."

Pros: "1st time on Srilankan, it was good. Would fly again"
Cons: "The boarding pass checker at the gate was all grumpy! Do folks in South Asia lose anything if they smile and greet a passenger? Perhaps she hates her job?!"
Pros: "the vegetarian food on the second flight Colombo to Bangkok was really nice, good taste, comforting."
Cons: "only two toilets, long queue"
Pros: "Colombo to Male & vice versa by Sri Lankan airlines has been very disappointing to be polite with regard to disgusting food served by them in small cardboard box with no choices whatsoever unlike a standard career nor what they practiced in the past by serving real food chics, not even a cup of tea or copy. Disgracely shocking practice by a national career & not by any means budget airline. Previously Mihiri Air served even better choice of food & drink at moderate prices but price of ticket was at least 50% cheaper. SL Govt with SLA With no regard for passenger comfort nor giving them a reasonabl deal on his sector should be condemned & boycotted. As a regular traveler I will look at Emirates as a better airlines despite with a different time slots still would be cheaper & value FO money. Wake up Sri Lankan Airlines from your slumber"

Pros: "Being a QR Gold member and one world airline I opt UL for few travels by which i can get additional miles and travel in business with less money compared to QR. The service is good and the flights are always in time and well clean. There ia flat seats between Doha to Colombo and from there to Kerala is normal flight but its fine. Business class lounge in Colombo is good with free feet and head massage. When there is a five hour plus transit, free hotel is provided by UL. Overall i like their flights and service and food."
Cons: "Nothing as such"
Cons: "I had excess luggage and I knew I had to pay for it, I was fine with the fee they quoted. I gave them my American Express card and they did not have the facility to charge that card, how do they not have the ability to use s major credit card at the Bangalore international airport??????? They gave me such a hard time I thought they were going to kick me off the plane just because they had short coming. I had no problem paying the quated amount, since they had the short coming they were blaming me. After a lot discussion/arguments I was able to find a Visa card on me and pay for the excess luggage, but its your short coming and not mine as I had no problem paying the fees yet I was treated badly. What if I did not have a Visa card then would I have been kicked out the plane for something the bangalore international airport have problems. No one should be blamed for issues you have. I had no problem paying to fees... you had the problem that you could not use a major credit card, when there are small markets on the street that can use the American Express card. You should be able to charge people American Express card this is a large international airport with loads of expats living and traveling in and out of Bangalore I hope you look into this instead of just asking for feedback and not doing anything about it. Thanks you, Chrishanthi Fernandopulle"
