Cons: "Extremely bad service at the ticket counter. Really disappointed, really disappointed"
Cons: "Chose emergency exit on Cathay 777-300. Terrible.. was squished like a sardine! And I was in window seat... was not even able to eat! Worst economy class I have been in years!!! Never again...."
Pros: "Everything was on time and the food and service was good."
Cons: "Food was lacking, everything else excellent! Not enough components to the meals. Be nice to have cheese/crackers. Better salad."
Pros: "Changi. Wow.."
Cons: "Aircraft rather not modern."
Cons: "not much choice in the movie selection"
Pros: "Very disappointed in the service provided"
Cons: "Contact the customer for flight changes instead of doing it automatically for the customer. I woke up to text messages letting me know my flight was changed from 0635 to 2135. I had major plans for the next few days and couldn’t afford to take that risk."
Pros: "The luggage space was good."
Pros: "seat and flight were great , smooth ride as well"
Cons: "breakfast could be better but was fine"
Cons: "Airplane was extremely hot, service was poor"

Cons: "flight lates as always"
Pros: "One of the nicest crews I've had the pleasure of flying with"
Cons: "Nothing I could tell at the moment....."
Cons: "Food extreamly salty and makes you gassy. Bathrooms were always dirty and out of items. Economy cabin was freezing cold and the blankets provided are paper thin."
Cons: "Flight delayed out of Singapore. Airline should have at least notified earlier so passengers can arrive later to the airport Cabin crew on board rude ‘sorry i’m too busy now’ [just asking for a glass of water] Plane then sitting at HK airport waiting for open gate Arrival timed just perfectly to prevent passengers from catching the last airport express train"
Pros: "Boarding quick n fast"
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable, leg n body, space too small n my left seat is a big sizes man , right seat is a very fat man , I can’t even move . my seat don’t have headset n request one , but until reached Hong Kong I still didn’t get it n I m in plane for 4hrs doing nothing, no games no songs n no shows. Thank for your concern . Really appreciate."
Cons: "seat cushion for the back is too hard."
Cons: "Flight delayed as always"
Pros: "- Good food - Good choice of entertainment - Comfortable seats - Polite staff & well organized"
Pros: "I am a wheelchair user and Cathay Pacific took excellent care of me"
Pros: "Service was great and friendly and attentive"
Cons: "Setting chart was not accurate. It showed a space between my seat and next to me and there was no space between."
Pros: "The plane was great Boeing 350 I think great entertainment system, comfortable seats, and the Singapore new terminal 4 is wounderful"
Pros: "I enjoyed the good check in service, and the excellent lounges. As always, the overall level of service on Cathay was good."
Cons: "The utterly appalling seats on Cathay's old B777s are unacceptable for a premium airline. Non-reclining economy seats which are desperately uncomfortable for any flight of more than 1 hour, and completely unsuitable for an overnight flight. These planes desperately need a refit. Best avoided until this has been completed. The flight was overbooked, and the cabin crew seemed stressed and very busy. As a long term frequent flyer with CX, this was a very disappointing experience."
Cons: "3h delay on the way in 1h delay on the way back"
Pros: "Food and drinks, service of the crews."
Cons: "Flight delay of 20 mins."
Pros: "Cathay Pacific were great slight delay in Singapore due to incoming flight. A350 plane wonderful quiet and decent space in economy. Food and entertainment was good and well time food serving."
Cons: "Arriving Hong Kong and getting a taxi... first impressions count and Taxis are rude and a rip off. Not what you expect from a renowned international airport"
Pros: "Newer plane"
Cons: "6,5 hrs delayed"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and the flight was comfortable. There were two service representatives to take me on the golf cart from my gate in Terminal 1 when I landed to the bus departing from Terminal 2 to Terminal 4 where my connection was. It was unexpected, but saved a lot of stress based on the distance I had to travel within the airport to make the connecting flight."
Cons: "They recently moved the Cathay Pacific flights to the new Terminal 4 in Changi in Singapore. The connecting distance was significant to get from the Terminal 1 gate to the bus leaving from Terminal 2 to get to Terminal 4. Changi is usually VERY efficient, but this was a real inconvenience to not have direct transport from T1 to T4. Also, the lines for Cathay are not properly sorted by First/Business and all status frequent flyers. There were no ropes or anything organizing the queue, so there were well over 150 people lined up for the priority boarding with no clear queue. At that point, there is no priority. Time to get better organized."
Pros: "Comfortable seats - good entertainment"
Cons: "4-5 minutes of commercials before being able to watch the movie on the plane."
Pros: "On time Good service Nice crew"
Pros: "super comfortable seats, complete amenities (pillows, blankets, TV and a plug to charge your devices). flights are also on time and the food is great! I've been flying through budget airlines until now; although I flew economy with Cathay, the flight experience felt very premium."
Pros: "Flight personnel go out of there way to smile and make you feel wanted on this flight and the previous flight enroute to Singapore from Hong Kong. Food was OK, too."
Pros: "Most crew very helpful. Great movie and music selection."
Cons: "Middle row every time and difficult to get out.(economy). Out of the Asian meal again for people in the back of the plane. Was unable to check in on line for some reason, but taken care of at airport."
Pros: "Customer service and food was great"
Cons: "Planes are old do not have larger entertainment screens and don't have wi fi"
Pros: "Very enjoyable flight. Plenty of legroom in the bulk seating. Service was very good and food was OK."

Pros: "Upgraded to business class 2 twice. Great service and caring staff"
Pros: "This route is covered by an A350 which was nice to discover."
Cons: "Despite the brand new aircraft, the Economy section seats are not comfortable which was quite disappointing. The service could be better too. Not what Asian airlines are usually known for."
Pros: "Midnight flight, so did not request anything. Normal."
Cons: "Was informed flight delay after we've reached airport for check in. Which is 1 1/2 earlier from departure time. Should have inform earlier. New scheduled time 2.05am, but can only board at 2.10am, so flight timing delayed beyond 2.05am."
Pros: "The food and service"
Pros: "Went up and down as planned."
Cons: "Late departure due to storms results in late arrival. Seat didn't work as expected. USB charger didn't work and interfered with the headset."

Pros: "Sing-Hong Kong seating comfort."
Cons: "Terrible food on Cathay now. All meals were barely edible."
Pros: "Crew Service and Leg space is great. Automatic check-in station is simple and easy to operate, speeds up the queue for checking-in and luggage drop."
Cons: "Seat has no recline option, only movable part is the base of seat, back support recline is not available, thus making it impossible to rest. Food was served cold, CX used to be much better at food handling, cold omelette and soggy bacon is definitely not appetizing even for a hungry morning flight. Entertainment is ok, nice options, but LCD screen is getting old and blurry, rather not strain my eyes to try watch anything on it."
Pros: "Connecting timing were great and everything were perfect!"
Cons: "The walk to gate 50 at HK International Airport.... the walk seems to be taking forever and I cannot imagine if someone were to have a short connecting time....."
Pros: "The plane was good, comfortable, service excellent! Business lounge at Singapore airport is excellent!"
Pros: "The ice cream dessert."
Cons: "No tube to the terminal due to SEA Games. Bus service provided from tarmac to temporary immigration counters."
Pros: "Free space"
Cons: "Layover switch"
Pros: "Flight was on time boarding and arriving"
Cons: "1). Didn’t have enough food so only one option was available 2.) seats cramped like a budget airline 3.). Pilot made a harsh landing."
Pros: "The plane was very comfortable and the crew was attentive. The main flight attendant knew our names and greeted us as we entered and left the plane by name. The food was very good and wine pairing appropriate."
Cons: "They did security checks at the gate rather than upon entry to the concourse. It slowed everything down on boarding. Any double check caused a delay."
Pros: "Was very much on time, quick flight and boarding."
Cons: "Older plane, no entertainment but did have free wifi"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Airport security was complicated. Had to go through security checks 3 times. Once at the gate (early) had to leave the area and go through security to sit at the gate again."
Pros: "Helpful staffs"
Cons: "Flight delayed."
Pros: "Nice flight attendant. Alcohol included."
Cons: "Snack choices. More tea and coffee"
Pros: "Flight is amazing, sacious seats and best quality entertainment. Most importantly only airlines to give inflight free wifi"

Cons: "they do not offer any veg food"
Pros: "plane and crew"
Cons: "mla airport is at its worse"
Pros: "comfort is alright"
Cons: "no entertainment not even music"
Pros: "Everything was smooth - no issues or delays. Food was great Would fly with them again for short distances."
Cons: "Apparently if you book with a third party booking Philippine Airlines does not provide you with meal or hotel voucher in Manila for long layover (22 hours). Had I booked directly through them they would have provided meals/hotel for the night. Instead we had to get two rooms for our family of 6. For this, I wouldn’t recommend them (if using third party booking)."
Pros: "Crew is nice"
Cons: "Older plane and seating. Boarding not great in SG. Food marginal."
Pros: "They gave us a meal on a 2 and a half hour flight! Amazing service."
Cons: "It was a bit tight. Not much legroom."
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Literally every time I fly PAL there is some issue with delay. After boarding we stat on the plan for over an hour before we took off waiting for some other passengers. Also I was at the airport early and wanted to get on earlier flight they wanted to charge me $300 to get on a flight with many extra empty seats."
Pros: "Friendly filipino airport staff and PAL stewardess are friendly and accomodating"
Cons: "Very long que at HK immigration"
Pros: "Friendly crew. Nice plane. They fed us even though it was less than 2 hour flight."
Cons: "Delayed flight, late take off. Chicken nuggets I had we're bland."
Pros: "It's a Philippine Flag carrier. It's a privilege to patronize our own carrier."
Cons: "No hassles at all. Generally a smooth flight to HongKong."
Pros: "Crew was fine food mediocre"
Cons: "Leg room is real tight. Hardly any space to move. Compared to other airlines the A320-200 Philippine Airlines aircraft has been packed with way too many seats. Will not fly them again."
Pros: "Loved that the crew boarded everyone accorsig to seat zone starting with the backmost part... enabled speedy boarding and you'd think this would be SOP but many PAL flights don't do this. Always happy with the refurbished aircraft and selection of in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "I couldn't check in online due to the kind of ticket I bought. Was willing to pay for bulkhead seats but had no chance due to unavailability."
Cons: "The stewardess as usual they are not friendly as they should be with the passenger, I have been flying with philippines airlines often time hoping the crew will be super smily and friendly, they are cold as ice !"

Cons: "The plane was shaking and gave me nauseas"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and attentive."
Cons: "Flight was delayed without any communication for the reason. Overall delay was less than one hour but it is frustrating"
Pros: "The food was ok."
Cons: "The flight left Singapore 4 hours late. It caused me to not be able to take my fiancé to the movies before bed. I also only got 6 hours of sleep last night instead of 8. They didn't have any in flight entertainment for a 4 hour flight. It was really bare bones and it was slightly more expensive than other choices."
Cons: "Wish the seats were bigger."
Cons: "There is a lot to improve on with their food. As the main Philippine carrier, they should make adobo in the best possible and original way that returning residents will immediately feel they are "home"."
Pros: "The crews (all crews)"
Cons: "Can't watch the tv cause no earphone"
Cons: "Manila airport and airline staff are terrible"
Pros: "The in flight meal was very. The cabin crew was friendly and gave good service."
Cons: "Legroom could have been better."
Pros: "Flight was supposed to leave at 7:30 PM, but got delayed to a 10 PM takeoff. You'd think the crew would be apologetic, attentive and considerate given the time change, but it was even the lead flight attendant who kept making announcements (duty free, serving dinner, weather, time, seatbelt status change, everything). Nighttime flights are supposed to be more peaceful with announcements kept to a minimum, right?"
Cons: "Food was awful and no entertainment"
Cons: "Horrible service, delayed every leg of the flight for 2 and half hrs. Staff are very lazy and the plane was so dirty! Especially the bathroom. The food was bad also. Omg I will never take this airline again"
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "No in-flight entertainment"
Cons: "Very bad, delay 90 minutes"
Pros: "Fast checkin process"
Cons: "I'm 6'5" and the standard economy seats are much to small to even fit my knees. I little had to spend 3+ hours with my knees pulled up to even fit and it was the most uncomfortable flight experience of my life. The staff on board would not accommodate at all and told me it was airline policy to not allow me to switch seats. Pathetic! Never flying this airline again."
Pros: "Good service, but the food was HORABLE. !!"
Pros: "I'm quite tall and the flight attendants quickly moved me (without even me having to ask!) to an exit row with more leg room. And I must admit that these were some of the friendliest flight attendants I've ever had...always smiling and polite."
Pros: "Large, new plane, modern. Wonderful crew."
Cons: "Air traffic into and out of Manila is heavy and causes delays. We waited 19 minutes to land coming into Manila and my Hong Kong flight waited 15 minutes on the tarmac waiting to take off."
Pros: "the service was great"
Cons: "We should have been allowed to sit near our family (wives). There was empty row but they wanted to charge us to move up. Ridiculous!!"
Pros: "Check in staff was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Refused to serve me food when I woke up."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "The flight took forever to land. Pilot said prepare for descent and we stayed in the air for another forty minutes. The air smelled awful. One of the worst flights I’ve ever taken."
Pros: "I was able to purchase extended seat room for a reasonable price."
Cons: "No free drinks or entertainment or anything to help pass the flight time."
Cons: "Staff at check-in counter were not helpful. They were there and they weren't. We were there at the front while two of the counters were ready but didn't call us up. They were chatting with each other instead. We I asked them are they ready to work, she ask me where was I heading. What is the difference?"
Pros: "Comfortable seat in emergency exit row!!"
Pros: "HK Express compensated for delay"
Cons: "Terrible attitude from the staff"
Cons: "Sat on runway 2 hours and then bags delayed 1 hour"
Pros: "Price was good and HK to Tokyo times were good"
Cons: "No entertainment on 5 hour flight"
Pros: "Nothing in particular."
Cons: "They don't tell you that 1) you aend up paying more than other airlines charge by the time you add various 'extras'; and 2) you have to go through immigration because they are in another terminal. This means two hours of work, plus I missed my flight because I didn't have 3 hrs. They said my fault."
Pros: "Good price to go HK to Tokyo"
Cons: "Flight attendant woke up a baby to tell passenger something and then baby cried for next hour No water unless you pay for it"
Pros: "The crew was very nice, seats comfortable and the airline seemed well run for a discount carrier."
Cons: "IS THIS A WAY TO RUN AN AIRLINE? WHAT A BLANKING JOKE! People should notify Ralph Nader & PUT in a LAW or a LEGAL INSTRUMENT that MANDATES compensation to “We the People”, the consumers, the citizens, the customers, man. IF a flight leaves 1-15 minutes late = okay BUT IF a flight leaves > than"
Cons: "Service from the crew could have been better. This crew was not hospitable and we had to ask multiple times for our requests."
Pros: "I wasn’t able to get the flight and the booking agent never amended this despite 2 weeks of emails and phone calls"
Cons: "Lastminute.com could have answered my emails"
Pros: "Low budget and efficient"
Pros: "Service was fine. Charged 50 usd for 21kg checked baggage. Food and beverage was not complimentary during flight."
Cons: "Fine experience. Stuck next to obese traveler that forced me to lean into the aisle. My bad luck, not the airlines fault."
Pros: "I just want a seat in a high season!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Friendly crew and very organized"
Cons: "Wish we didn’t have to buy water and entertainment lacked for a flight this long."
Cons: "Made me do a ticket change because I used the first initial and not the full name for my middle name. Been flying 30 years and this is the first time I have had a problem. Won't take these bargain airlines again. It was my first time taking one. Same with my 6 year old's ticket as well."
Pros: "Price was good."
Cons: "Never boarded the plane! I was not notified that luggage check-in closed 1 prior to departure; who knew it would take luggage more than an hour to reach the plane... I checked-in already and was only a couple minutes past the cut-off; they wouldn’t check my luggage in. Instead of offering some solutions or let me pay extra for checking at the gate, I was told my flight was closed, I would have to re-book at full price. I was there before the posted boarding time with time to spare. To top it off, I received a phone call from them asking if I was on board the plane.. online chat with customer service, not helpful either, thenperson I was chatting with just ended the chat after telling me 1 minute past they went check in."
Cons: "Although it was one e-ticket, I was surprised that HK express could not forward my luggage to my final destination. This almost caused me to miss my connection and caused me to pay twice for my extra luggage (which accumulated to a significant amount)"
Pros: "Easy boarding, and slept the flight."
Cons: "It was the hidden prices after booking that ticked me off. Charged for seat after paying airfare, charged for any checked baggage, no in flight service without charge, and you arrive so late to HK you have to Bus or Taxi in. Not worth it."
Pros: "It was a short flight."
Cons: "Tried to save by booking a different carrier. When it can time to check in... I was charged for my seat, charged for a carry-on weighing more than 7kg and forced to check, chose not to pay for a meal, pay for a drink... so many hidden fees. Ended up not saving at all. No savings, no miles, no perks. Will always use an aliance (UA, Asiana, etc) or SkyTeam (Delta, Korean Air) from now on. I at least get my money’s worth."
Pros: "I love when they have great deals on airfare. The late night flight works well for me."
Cons: "Wish the air cooler was stronger and that water was served during the trip."
Cons: "Budge airline, uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Crew, plane, food wasn’t complementary and if you want to buy it you will be very disappointed."
Pros: "Price is good"
Cons: "No entertainment, no water"
Pros: "I'm glad it was only a three hour flight"
Cons: "I connected from a Cathay Dragon flight onto an HK Express flight to Jeju. At the transfer desk, the ground agent told me I would have to leave and reenter the restricted area despite having no checked luggage. Knowing it can't be right, I checked in on my phone and went through the normal transfer process in HKIA. It was a 0215 flight from the midfield concourse. The last automated passenger carrier left at 0100. After which, passengers would have to rely on sporadic bus services. The captain announced 'cabin crew, prepare for landing' 45 minutes before landing. That woke everyone up and it was not ideal. All the flights I have been on announced landing when the plane was at base leg."
Pros: "Cheap service out of Hong Kong"
Cons: "Lack of seat pitch"
Cons: "Due to their mistkes with connections and communication I never made it on my flight therefor the specific indicators way be inaccurate but I would say an overall terrible experience."
Pros: "The airport had an emergency shut down and we didn’t get notification about it. When we showed up in airport, the only accommodation was 250 Thai bhat Burger King vouchers that it’s not even enough to buy a drink after getting a burger."

Cons: "got sick from food"
Cons: "Could not contact service team even Hong Kong office. They just sent email to let us know the delay, but nothing at all"
Cons: "Seats were very very uncomfortable"
Cons: "The light was delayed and we arrived in Chiang Mai at 11pm. We got penalty of late rental car pick up. And our hotel is a yoga resort so it a far in the mountain. We arrived at the resort at 2am and we had to wake everybody up and the driving was dangerous without street lights."
Pros: "Cheap but on time"
Cons: "Too much promotion message"
Pros: "We landed safely and the crew were polite"
Cons: "Late on the way to Da Nang and very late on the way back (flight back to HK was a Hong Kong Express plane). Budget airlines are just not worth it at HKIA - your flights lands and takes off so far from the terminal, you are transferred by bus! No in flight entertainment- although not an issue on such a short flight."
Pros: "It was cheap"
Cons: "Everything about it was not good and I will never fly them again"

Cons: "Nothing really. For a no-frills flight, it was a great value"

Cons: "That the in-flight wifi really is free instead of making the passengers to pay"

Pros: "correct priority of boarding respected luggage handling very fast"
Cons: "quality of food"
Cons: "Uncomfortable Won't give you a blanket or cup of eatery without making you pay Delayed"
Cons: "Flight attendant quite slow for delivering food and not many selection food available as usual"
Pros: "Assistance in check in"
Cons: "After early boarding still wait like 30 min plus seating in plane"
Pros: "On time and very friendly helpful staff. Especially ground crew"
Pros: "we arrived almost half hour ahead of schedule"
Cons: "In flight food is available for cash in Malasian ringgit only, which makes it unavailable for those international passengers leaving Malaysia who get rid of local currency on their way out of country"
Pros: "Good music Took off EARLY and landed EARLY"
Cons: "Sprayed the cabin with bug spray"
Cons: "No free entertainment and did not eat on flight"
Pros: "Efficient boarding....took off early in both directions!"
Pros: "Clean aircraft"
Cons: "Two flights in a row behind schedule ; messed up my vegetarian pre ordered food selections in both flights"

Cons: "The head stewardess pronounced a few words wrong"
Cons: "Aircraft arrived slightly late"
Pros: "convenient flight times"
Cons: "i hated that there are no human beings in sight. i hate all the machines. i hate that you dont employ people. if you want to give jobs to machines then i what use are you? i would much rather pay more and be greeted by a friendly human face. you are all fools and i will seek other airlines in future"
Cons: "Seating is very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Good: cheap and on time. Bad: aways slow check-in and uncomfortable seating. Everything a budget airline should be."
Cons: "Duplicitous and sneaky policies. They tried to scam us out of $175 to check our luggage (it turns out we only should pay $16). Be careful."
Pros: "fast and easy"
Cons: "seat comfort and leg room plus they charge for everything extra"
Cons: "constant flight delays"
Cons: "Late flight, not enough announcements"
Pros: "Staff very helpful and knowledgeable... enjoyed my flight! Thank you so much!"
Cons: "Nothing...everything was perfect!"
Pros: "Check in staff was trying to ensure me that hoping the cabin crew can help me changed seats"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours. What's worst my 5 years old daughter have to be seperated from me. And instead of them asking the passengers to swap they'd expect me to solve their stuffed up. Not very impressed at all"
Pros: "On time.. .short flight"
Cons: "Cramped seats"
Cons: "Badly managed check-in queue even for online checked passengers doing bag drop - 3 hours before departure at NAIA 3. There was no announcement from airline staff or anyone for that matter at the gate that the plane will be delayed. Plane departed 2 hours late and sitting in the tarmac with poor cooling inside the plane. Badly managed budget airline."
Pros: "Great boarding arrangement for back seat passengers to board first and follow up with front seat passengers."
Cons: "Cabin crew totally forget their priority task which is to Ensure the comfort of passenger. Instead everyone is so focus on retail as well as F&B add on sales."
Pros: "Like food and nice crew"
Cons: "Always worry delay"
Cons: "Flight was delayed."
Pros: "Inexpensive flights. Book early to get the best deals."
Cons: "The announcement came almost every few minutes, which is annoying. Carrier will squeeze every penny out of you. Bring something on board to eat if a long flight."
Pros: "We got to the destination."
Cons: "-fee to check bags -changed gate without updating status board and delayed boarding -though none could be found, cabin smelt like vomit -no food included, charged money for water. Yes, water. -constant (and unnecessary) updates on PA system -often attempted to sell AirAsia branded paraphernalia during flight while everyone was trying to sleep -sprayed an unknown substance into the cabin to "sanitize" just before we landed (insecticide?!). We were given a warning literally 10 seconds before they sprayed it."
Cons: "I was not allowed on board due to absence of a transit visa for HongKong (I had few hours transit there before my next flight back to EU). I am allowed to stay up to 48h in HK airport for transit without any visa, I had to quickly find and purchase the flight ticket to HK with another airlines, with them it was no problem to fly to HK for transit. All other few flights with AirAsia were bad as well. We were refused to get water as a complimentary during a log flight from HK to Manila. Every flight was always delayed up to ~1 h."
Pros: "Overall not bad the flight left on time and was a good flight."
Cons: "Please be forewarned, pay for your bags ahead of time if you can figure out how. We had a short flight from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur and had not paid for our bags. It ended up costing us more for two bags than the flight for the both of us. For that reason alone I would probably not fly with them again unless it was the only option."
Pros: "The price I paid was very reasonable."
Cons: "No commets."
Pros: "Cabin crew were proactive, hard working and super friendly. Upgraded to "hot" seats at check in without charge. Wide range of food and beverages available despite being a short 1.5 hour flight. Aircrafts were clean and well maintained. Both flights landed either on time or early despite weather issues."
Cons: "Check in process, hidden fees, unworkable app for iPhone. I tried to use the app to check in and pay for a bag, it didn't allow me and I had to pay the much more expensive fee at the airport to check the bag. App in general didn't work well at all, it never showed the return leg journey so I couldn't make any amendments to the booking. Check in process took ages in Langkawi, only two desks open for all of AK's flights. None of the self service kiosks were working despite being advertised as functioning."
Pros: "Ease of web checkin but it took too long to drop off luggage"
Cons: "No inflight entertainment. Had to buy food including all beverages."
Pros: "Flights were on time."
Cons: "All food and drinks were sold at additional cost, not even small snacks or water included in the price of the flight ticket."
Pros: "Fast & on schedule"
They tried to charge me $850 US. For 1 extra bag. After complaint that amount is crazy. They brought the manager over who then told me to bring him $450 in cash and they would accept it Big Scam. After going to the bank machine in the airport and getting the money. The manger put the money in his pocket and took my bag I couldn’t do much because i was about to miss my flight STAY AWAY. From this airline They have some inside scam going on with their employees STAY AWAY. Don’t become a victim like I did

Pros: "Friendly crew. Toilets kept clean. Nice ambience with the cabin lighting."
Cons: "My seat had a broken recliner button. Seat would recline but not stay reclined. If I sat up, seat would come up with me."

Cons: "nowhere to store our cabin luggage"
Cons: "I need wheelchair but your crew an Indian Lady I think in the check -in counter did not give me wheelchair from Singapore. She said but in Mla she assigned wheel chair but when in Manila they said Scoot did not assigned wheelchair inmy ticket. I hate you Scoot and I will never take scoot again in any of my up coming trips"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Overpriced drinks and snacks"
Pros: "Extremely rude."
Cons: "I got sick on the flight from some food poisoning and the crew acted put out when I asked for some water."
Cons: "I am not sure why they were delayed."
Pros: "The Business Class bed was nice"
Cons: "The whole experience was terrible. Scoot decided to - delay flight by 45 minutes without telling me. I discovered this by checking myself - chartered a Singapore Airlines Boeing 777-200 and then reduced then quality of every Business Class service (no entertainment system videos or music, no alcohol or soft drinks - only water, only Economy class food. There was no apology from Scoot (who are a subsidiary of Singapore Airlines) and none from Singapore Airlines. There was no suggestion of any refunds or other compensation. Truly a disgrace. I will never fly on either Singapore Airlines or Scoot airline again. I am seeking further compensation through Australian Fair Trading and through Class Action Lawyers (as this impacted every passenger on this flight, not just Business Class)"
Cons: "You can choose your seat but when you pay you can choose a seat and I don’t like this"
Pros: "There is nothing to say this is a no frills airline and that is what you get. Departure was on time and arrival was also on time. Food on any airline isn’t good at least on airline i fly. The important thing is getting there safely and this airline company does that."
Pros: "It was a good flight"
Cons: "The long delay......"
Pros: "Organised well. Clean plane. Excellnt comms from pilot and staff presented well."
Cons: "Could not recline chair"
Pros: "Overall it was a good flight."
Cons: "No offer to book my seat assignment during the booking process. A kiosk check-in would be a nice addition."
Pros: "The Staff were friendly and efficient, considering the flight time being very short. The Flight Crew got us to our destination 10 mins ahead of schedule, considering also that we were 15 mins behind sitting on the runway for take off, which in effect meant they made up 25 mins. Fantastic job. The Aircraft was clean and well maintained. The seats were comfortable in economy for me, but unfortunately my Husband being a larger tall man was cramped and didn’t have a lot of room to move."
Cons: "As the flight was very short the choice of food was limited and the selection was not good, as the choice I required ran out at the first two rows, which were not occupied by many passengers at all. A very light passenger load. The pricing was a little high for the snacks and tiny bottles of water."
Cons: "I didn't realise I was going to be in such a poor airline after booking through the Singapore Airlines website. There was hardly any space, food options were limited, there was no entertainment, they even charged for water! Equal worst airline with jetstar"
Pros: "boarding is thru gate and not tarmac"
Cons: "food are expensive."
Pros: "on time and departed early"
Cons: "none. is budget airline"
Pros: "great check in staff fast boarding comfortable temperature in cabin very good crew"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for over 30 mins."
Pros: "Nice aircraft, on time departure and arrival"
Cons: "reclining seats only in business class, not lay flat. pay for everything except the bathroom"
Cons: "Flight crew’s attitude. The fact that there was no overhead space and the crew didn’t Check additional bags. Had to stove the bags u def the seat and there was no room to stretch my legs. The flight crew had the most pathetic attitude and was rude beyond imagination."
Pros: "Singapore to Hanoi flight."
Cons: "Boarding is thru T2 airport bus which brings all passengers to Flyskoot plane parked somewhere. Not good for those with strollers. Will avoid Flyskoot if going to Hanoi."
Cons: "We were given just one very small water about 150ml and told we have to pay if we need more water. Restriction on providing drinking water in Business class seems unfair. Please reconsider"
Pros: "i did not see any entertainment."
Cons: "The process to check and pay for a bag at the airport was ridiculous. We waited in line to check the bag, found out that since we hadn't paid for it ahead of time, we could get the bag checked but would need to go stand in a new line to pay for it and could not have the bag tag until this was done. Then the new line only had one agent working all of the people who needed to pay for their bags. When we got to the front, we were asked to pay the bag fee with a credit card and the processing fee in cash. Since we were only connecting in Singapore, of course we did not have cash. She could not process the charge, walked us over to a new desk and a new line where they processed the bag charge without the cash fee (how this wasn't done initially, I have no idea) and finally, we were finished with the check in process an hour later."
Cons: "Temperature in cabin too warm on outgoing flight"
Pros: "Being a budget airline, you really get what you pay for. Seats do not recline. Minimum legroom. I was thankful that it was only a 1-hour flight"
Cons: "Stiff, uncomfortable seats without controls. Just adequate legroom for a 5’3” person"
Cons: "It was moving a lot!!! :\"
Pros: "check in - fast via machine. boarding - organized. crew helped out with baggage. flight - took off on time after short taxi and landed early"
Cons: "equipment could use refurbishment"
Pros: "Flight to Manila from Singapore was an easy 3 hour flight. There were no delays and the aircraft was clean."
Pros: "The cost was cheap"
Cons: "There wasn't much room for someone who is 6'4''"
Pros: "Crew was cordial, helpful and patient."
Cons: "There was absolutely no complimentary service at all, a bit unusual compared to flights we've taken in the past (domestic and international). No offer of free water, what's up with that?!?! There was no entertainment on board for an overnight flight, no blanket, no pillow."
Cons: "This was a return flight I was taking. But even though I paid for a bag when booking, Kayak only booked the bag on the flight over. It there for cost me $48 to book the bag on at the airport one way back. For some reason when I was paying they could not take for the full amount on my CC and so I had to go change money as $8 had to be paid cash (very strange). The flight was very uncomfortable. I could go into detail but now I’m just ranting. Not happy. Won’t be doing that again."
Cons: "I had lost my luggage from Singapore to Maldives’s airport"
Pros: "Scoot Business is excellent value for money. 35 seats at the front of a Dreamliner with comfortable seats and some recline. The flight took off on time and landed in Sydney on time. I will go again."
Cons: "Not much really. It does not compare with Business on the national carriers but at half the price what do you expect?"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and plane embarked on time. ScootBiz seats pretty comfortable although don’t seem to recline much more than economy. Overall good flight though."
Pros: "On time. Service on board simple. Crews are friendly"
Cons: "The manager at the ticket office harassed my friend about his VISA- wasted 2 hours of our time saying his visa was not valid when it was. Then she finally gave him a boarding pass. As we hit the gate, she chased us down to yet again, say he couldn't board because of the same reason. She told him when he got back to Hyderabad that he would be charged as a criminal & be held in a cell all alone without a way to commicate to others. It was absolutely absurd!! We made it back to Hyderabad and like we knew the whole time, his VISA was fine."
Pros: "Scoot upgraded to a bigger plane, and as a result had more empty seats"
Cons: "flight was delayed by almost 2 hours due to operational problems. despite that, there were still passengers who were late to board, causing more delays. no apologies from Scoot. plans were derailed."
