Pros: "Singapore Airlines delivers as always. Friendly crew and clean and well maintained aircraft."
Pros: "Basics are covered. TV screen is big but otherwise nothing special."
Cons: "It is so annoying they want you to pay an extra $20 to pre book any seat. If you need the extra $20 that much, charge me in the original fare! Don't nickel and dime me. At check in they couldn't even get my child seated beside me although a change was made last minute at the gate. Every other airline I've flown recently was better. Sri Lankan and Emirates FAR better service."

Pros: "Again friendly and efficient staff and a smooth flight. Best features of Singapore Airlines."
Cons: "The business class seats were smaller than I thought and not so comfortable as the 777. The seats are hard and ungiving and when you sleep on them you really feel it.

The food was good but uninteresting and I think for an overnight flight there should be more smaller,lighter, non spicy options offered rather that full dinners."
Pros: "Spacious and comfortable bed."

Cons: "Outdated Cabin Fit Out"
Cons: "The plane was freezing - absolutely freezing. Too cold. There were not enough fluids given out. Given we could not even take water brought in the airport into the plane there needed to be regular distributions of fluids on the flight as there was on the flight from London toy Singapore.

Pros: "People were lovely and efficient"
Cons: "Seats were pretty ordinary"

Cons: "1. Not enough movie selections; same selection on both legs of the trip. 2. Bathrooms were dirty. 3. I was very disappointed that I was forced to check a carryon due to weight limits when it was under the size requirement. The weight limit doesn't make sense if it was going on the same plane anyway for free. 4. It is utterly ridiculous not to give full mileage for economy tickets anymore. Out of all the programs to cut, the loyalty program? Really? 5. Flight attendants were not particularly friendly."

Pros: "Seats were fairly comfortable and there was lots of space. Good Inflight entertainment though movie choices were more limited compared to some other carriers."

Cons: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "Mostly high grossing Hollywood hits and Asian picks."
Cons: "On other airlines, the stewardesses are open and willing to cater to your needs. EVA planes come a curtain that the crew pulls back and they really mean it.

I finally just started pouring my own from the water tap."

Cons: "I tried to book anew flight by of an emergency at home. Instead I had to fly delta home. Lost a lot of money."

Cons: "Nothing I didn't like."
Pros: "I liked the crew members. They were welcoming and professional. Flight fare was very good in value for waiting a few extra hours in Taipei. I could do some shopping there while I was in transit. Nice airport. The screens of my row were not working so they restarted all screens a few times. While the screens of my row worked, other rows were not working. Surprisingly no one fixed or complaint as the screens of other rows kept off from the start to the end of the flight. I felt so sorry for others."
Cons: "Like what I said in "what I like", I think the connection of the screens/tablets had some issues. Luckily mine worked. I would be upset if my screen did not work during the entire 9 hours flight."

Pros: "Comfortable and relaxing!"
Pros: "Warm service from check-in to destination. Counter staff arranged, without hesitation, upon my casual asking if could change to window seating and she did it with a smile (though I've web-checked in already). Service on flight was heart-warming too!"
Pros: "Transit was smooth and efficient."
Pros: "Prompt and customer-oriented service. Thank you to counter staff for arranging the seat change. I thought I had confirmed the seating during web-checkin but was told that there was no history of confirming the seats in the system."

The screen was small and not very clear to watch."
Pros: "Service on the ground and in the air was efficient, if somewhat cool and uninterested. (The exception was at checkin counter where the service was great.) options for entertainment were great. Food was decent, legroom was decent, plane was older but still decent...."
Cons: "The entire plane's group of passengers seemed to be lined up at the boarding gate - no explanation why, but they were checking ID's. Then the line just moved into the plane. I prefer boarding by rows, especially when traveling with my young son. Air crew seemed pretty uninterested in anything beyond the basic requirements of the job."

Cons: "They ran out of chicken meals, and I did not prefer the fish option."
Pros: "Crew and staff were all very responsive and proactive in providing assistance, seed genuinely eager to help. Boarding was fine, and a representative of the airline took initiative to form a preliminary queue at the terminal departure counter despite the airline not having an all-day dedicated counter."
Cons: "While its 4-seat layout was better than some anes' 5 seats in the middle column, the seating was, of course, cramped, and I did not have enough space under the seat in front of me to stow my backpack. I also wish Kayak had included easy means to select seats and special meal options. Apparently to do so requires visiting the airline's own webpage."
Pros: "I am a vegetarian and they didnt have any options. Whatever options the crew could find, they said it was vegetarian but i dont think it was. The crew didnt understand english and couldnt speak english at all. Come-on you are operating an international airlines. The check in took good TWO hours- never have seen this delay in check in."
Pros: "Everything was handled very efficiently. Good signage at the airport for most things. Flew economy as the flight was only 2 hours. Free water bottles handed out with wet wipe but no food available."

Cons: "In-flight entertainment"
Pros: "The cabin crew were very pleasant."

Cons: "plane was badly late and the boarding process was poorly coordinated"
Pros: "This plane is in much better shape than the last one."
Cons: "Flight delays seem to be a common thing with VN airlines"

Cons: "Choice of movies was not that good. I had severe diarrhea the next day after the flight and I put it down to the aircraft food."
Pros: "The check-in staff realised we hadn't allowed enough time to transit in Ho Chi Minh city, so they seated us close to the front and put business class tags on our luggage. They were the first on to the carousel."
Cons: "Every one of our legs was delayed, which contributed to tight transit times."
Pros: "The crew were not visible and didn't offer any assistance"
Cons: "An offer of a snack as we paid a high price for the econom y flight"
Pros: "It was okay, really overpriced for what would have been a fine low-budget flight, like an Air Asia. If I had paid $200 or less for the flight, I would have no complaints about the comfort and service. But I paid over $600, so I'd expect a little more."
Cons: "Seat comfort, food, entertainment, boarding, disembarking."
Pros: "Everything was great."

Pros: "The plane was on time ,all good"
Cons: "A little more leg room... but all in all. Not to bad"
Cons: "Food can be way better"
Cons: "The transfer in Manila was like nowhere else. After the security check we were sent outside where buses were driving to claim our checked-in luggage to take it for another check just to drop it one minute later. Anywhere in the world if you board a flight with a stop-over you see your luggage at the final destination, not the case if you fly trough Manila."
Cons: "Would be better if flight arrived on time & we didn't have to wait for 30 minutes on the plane waiting for a terminal to be available"

Cons: "you ripped me off"

Cons: "The choice on the menu is not available, the bread was not given to us, because they run out, no apple juice because it run out too. Drinking water served, it is warm.They should offer some ice cubes or ask the passengers if they want ice... Other airlines, serves different juices through out the flight. Crew not communicating at all. Doesn't say anything or serve you with a smile."
Cons: "Check in at NAIA very slow with little information available, could not check in online 3 flights were boarding, same gate same 1 hour time period, confusing when Bangkok flight was boarding, boarding was also stopped due to a flight arrival Child in seat behind kicking/shaking my seat - no help"

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: "Not much. Both flights to and from Manila were delayed. The flight out was delayed pre-boarding by about 15-min and then about 30-min in the plane on the tarmac. Leaving Manila was delayed boarding by about 1-hr and we landed about 30-min late. Philippine Airlines operation has gotten so much worse."
Cons: "Everything. From the chaos at Check-in on the Manila side from the understaffed and overwhelmed employees, to the gate control and communication with passengers at a reasonable time for the delays. Staff at MNL Terminal 2 for PA seem not to care and there seems to be no management that exists."

Pros: "Fantastic onboard product in Business Class. Superb seating with all direct aisle access, excellent meals and friendly F/A's."
Cons: "I was a little concerned at the lax approach to securing the cabin for take off and landing the F/A's had. The Philippine Airlines lounge is an embarrassment for an airlines hub airport."
Pros: "great new plane."
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)."
Cons: "The lounge is awful."
Pros: "Comfortable seats , clean modern aircraft ."

Cons: "Slightly limited entertainment . Mabuhay lounge at Manila's average."
Pros: "Again lovely food and crew. Same good seats as the A350 from LHR."
Cons: "Boarded and ready on time but 1hr delay for ATC reasons . The A330's a bit short of toilets requiring a 'queueing system' at busy times. Probably not the actual airline's fault but the ground handlers at AKL took an hour to produce my bags meaning me missing a connecting internal flight."
Pros: "No direct contact details to change flight"
Cons: "Terrible customer service"
Pros: "Clean toilets."
Cons: "The flight was terrible. The boarding process was improperly conducted causing a lack of overhead space in the baggage storage overhead. The entertainment system was broken and the flight transfer process was terrible and confusing. I had the worst trip in over 300 life time trips. I felt like the price was way too high for the service I received! I need a partial refund at a minimun. This flight was terrible for my 3 children and I."
Pros: "The crew were pleasant."
