"All liked. It was very good 😊"
Pros: "The flight never occurred. The first leg of my flight from Ho Chi Minh was cancelled and I was not informed. I discovered this when I went to check in. I called Kayak to resolve this since I had confirmation of the booking and was placed on hold. After 2 HOURS I hung up. At roughly 4:00 am I spoke with someone at Kayak who confirmed the flight was cancelled and that I was not contacted. An offer was made to put me on another flight a day later but that was impossible because of needing another Covid test. I was able to arrange another flight that was more expensive."
Cons: "I would like to be reimbursed the difference in flight cost since I was not informed about the flight cancellation."

Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Pros: "Yes the airline co-operating so nice and staff were helpful. The seat was so comfortable."
Cons: "Menu options, movies"
Pros: "Crew service was amazing - so diligent and courteous. They were incredibly well trained and I would rate their service level as being one of the most competitive within business class in Asia."
Cons: "Seats were reasonably comfortable but not as spacious in design as in other business class cabins, so that could be a concern for some travelers. Also, I was not able to convert the main menu of the entertainment system to my preferred language so it was a bit difficult to navigate (that being said, they provided a card that guided me, so it was still usable, and the entertainment selection was good!)."
Pros: "The crew was definitely amazing. Extremely polite and always have a smile on :-)"
Cons: "Breakfast could have been better"
Pros: "Crew took great care of us."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "The crew was efficient and very helpful."
Cons: "Entertainment choices of selected movies were limited."
Pros: "great food, staff and service. I like it when i can brush my teeth on a over night flight with disposable tooth brush and tooth paste."
Cons: "Flight delay communication could be better. There were some major confusions between the gates on where my flight was going to land and departure until it was finally announced that flight was delayed."
Cons: "Entertaining in English"
Pros: "All of the crews were polite and friendly, and the food was tasty."
Cons: "If there're more variety of movies, that would be great."
Pros: "even though I was in Economy class, the seat was comfortable, the food was good and the flight attendands were attentive and polite"
Pros: "Crew very helpful. Seat roomy."
Pros: "The service was excellent"
Cons: "Food needs improvement"
Pros: "Beautifully presented and tasty Japanese food. Electronic windows."
Cons: "Not overly impressed with the 12:05am departure time. Western food not overly impressive. Having to travel from the plane to terminal by bus."
Pros: "Excellent service - delicious meals"
Pros: "Great service."
Cons: "I know this isn’t really the fault of the airline, but there was a loud toddler sitting behind me. It was frustrating, because the mother did not seem to do anything to have her child be quiet. It makes it hard for everyone around them to have comfortable rest, especially as this was an overnight flight. I have flown over the years with up to 5 children and do know how hard it can be, but it is important to foresee the needs of the child. I wonder of the attendants could have been a little more firm with the mother to ask her not to let the child roam the aisle."
Pros: "Smooth, on-time, friendly staff. The food was giid and plentiful. What happened to the complimentary toiletries, though?"
Cons: "Omg did you study how to prevent people from sleeping? If you allowed the head of the seat to go back just 3 more inches i think i could sleep. Instead, i am tortured like a yawn that wont come out, a mosquito in the dark, an itch that runs away from my fingers ... out of reach and just inaccessible. 12 hours of wishing so that by the time i reach my final destination, I've been awake over 24 hours. Im getting too old for that."
Pros: "Roomy seats on JAL flights - their actual airplanes. Horrible when they codeshare with american and use American Airlines planes."
Cons: "They have to take the prize for having the absolute slowest customer service in the world. When I booked my tickets, I emailed customer service to make sure I didn’t get a center seat. It took them two months - TWO MONTHS - to email me back, to tell me there was nothing they could do. I also had to be reticketed on my flight from Tokyo to Hanoi. It took them 3 1/2 hours to do this. I had to sit in the airport for 3 1/2 hours to get my ticket changed. Unbelievable. They could’ve chiseled it in stone faster than they issued it."
Pros: "Very comfortable plane, even full. Polite crew."
Pros: "The food on this flight was horrible. Big disappointment. Usually, the food on Japan Airlines is wonderful. However, on this flight, the food was a crab/mayo sandwich with yogurt. However, the service was wonderful, as always."
Pros: "The crews were polite and reliable. No bossy or mean like other airlines. they moved prompt, no running or fast walk on aisles, so that passengers can ask things easily. Food was much better comparing with any other companies. The boarding time was delayed one hour, however we landed japan 2, 3 mins later than the estimated arrival time. Landing technique was beautiful. American, United, ANA which I flew caused me have a deep Earache. I didn't get any pain from this flight. I am already scared of returning flight with American airplines."
Cons: "Leg room"
Cons: "Boarding was actually good. It was checking your luggages in and getting your boarding passes which was POOR. Passengers on International flights going out of the Philippines are advised be at the airport at least 3 hours before scheduled flight. Well, the JAL check-in counter opened at 650AM for the 950AM flight (exactly 3 hours before the scheduled flight), with maybe some 50 people already in line. With most passengers coming far from the airport, it will be very very helpful if the counter, even at least one counter, would open earlier, so that passengers who came in early could check in early and wait comfortably in the departure area."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly. Great take off, great landing the stewardess were doing excellent jobs to accommodate us. Will fly with JAL again in the future."
Pros: "The food (Japanese) clearly was a league of its own. Service was prompt, attentive yet discreet."
Cons: "Selection of video entertainment could be increased and improved."
Cons: "I never like flying into Narita - each time I have to have my boarding pass reissued and baggage rechecked. I like the YVR process where you just put your bags on a conveyor after clearing customs."
Pros: "Big bathroom, bide, wifi, movies, very good coffee, spacious seating areas, the price of airfare!!"
Pros: "The service, food, entertainment, everything was perfect. Thanks so much"
Pros: "The ground crew in HKG airport was really helpful."
Cons: "I have been flying JAL from HK to Boston numerous times and by far my favourite (over Cathay and don't even need to mention United). However this past trip gave me a new perspective. Given it is a Japanese airline and all, it is normal for them to be Japanese-centric. We had an a-hole sitting in front of us at 51F during our flight to Narita and he was trying hard to argue with us in English, and even told us to move to another seat. When I had the flight attendant (her name is Sako on flight JL736 on Jul 26) over to discuss (in English) she went to the guy in front of us and started apologizing to him. For what??? She then came back to us speaking in Japanese and brushed the issue away. Sorry, no this was not acceptable, even though my fiance was okay with the situation."
Pros: "Very spacious and comfortable, modern plane"
Pros: "Excellent customer service!"
Pros: "I liked that the seats were a 2-4-2 configuration. Most American carriers will have a 3-5-3 seating configuration. JAL has won some prestigious seat awards in 2015 for innovation and comfort."
Cons: "The JAL website specified most trans-atlantic flights with the newer and more spacious seating in Premium Economy. Departing from San Diego, this was only an option once a year I was told at the check in counter. I was counting on extra width and legroom as I am 270 lbs and 73" tall. I was disappointed that these up-gradable seats were not available. I also did not like that we sat on the Oksaka tarmac at a divert airport from Narita (Tokyo) and were not given an option to leave the plane and find alternate transportation of our choice to get us to our destination. I understand the high winds and bad weather was not allowing us to land on time, but we sat on the tarmac for 2 1/2 hours and then left to fly into Narita 5 hours late."
Pros: "The crew were cooperative and the supplies were good"
Cons: "The chairs were not comfortable and the toilets were so dirty"
Pros: "There was a huge check-in line but it went quickly because they had 8-10 ticket agents with luggage 'helpers' for the agents. Of course there was a problem with my reservation that they had never seen before which manifested itself by them not being able to print my boarding pass. They called Tokyo and were told that they had never seen my problem before either. Anyway, the ticketing supervisor stayed with me for 45 minutes until they could over come the problem. I would be a rich man if I had a nickel for every 'So-sorry' I got that day."
Pros: "Japan Airlines is far more spacious than all domestic airlines. The food and beverage options were comparable to most airlines like Delta, United, etc, but presentation was better so they get style points. Their wifi connectivity was far better than Gogo's services, which is the provider for most domestic airlines. The real improvement compared to most my travel was the level of service. The staff was incredibly attentive."
Cons: "Still waiting for the day wifi at 30k feet is comparable in speed to at least a public cafe. Also, when will one of these airlines start providing balanced meal options that are actually palatable. JAL's food was okay, but heavy on starches and fats with low quality protein or vegetables to accompany them."
Pros: "I really liked my experience with JAL. The comfort and overall service of the flight was excellent."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "N A"
Pros: "As always Korean Air’s attention to detail is outstanding and impressive."
Cons: "Though I appreciate the consideration given to tall passengers (trying to find us an aisle seat with an empty seat beside, after boarding, for instance), I think there is more that could be done during the check-in process to seat tall passengers into emergency exits or other seats with more legroom"
Pros: "Onboarding on time and kind"
Pros: "Fast boarding sequence and take off."
Cons: "Cabin crew should have smile more, serious faces make request so unconfortable. Food could have been better."
Pros: "Services from the crew and the seat are what expected being in eco-normic class."
Cons: "can upgrade or afford to go by at least business class"
Cons: "Not too much, not enough."
Pros: "They were so courteous, polite, nice, very helpful and accommodating. Always have smiles on their faces and they’re not fake smiles, they’re genuine. They made me feel comfortable even in a small, tight seats."
Cons: "Oh boy, the length of travel time. This trip was a spontaneous and a last minute decision. So as you can see, I couldn’t get a cheaper direct flight. End up with a stop over in S. Korea."
Pros: "Great service. Clean plane, good seating"
Pros: "Flight staff/crew were the best. And them planes top notch condition and amenities."
Cons: "Anytime I looked to get help from there non-fight staff (customer service, reservation personnel,etc.) I found them rude, short and unhelpful."
Pros: "nothing, i regret flying west jet but i had no choice bc it was the only option for my layover."
Cons: "- boarding was late - take off time took forever (kept circling around) - no entertainment - uncomfortable seats - very loud plane compared to other airlines"
Cons: "Old aircraft, tiny seats"
Pros: "the movie selection"
Cons: "the seats are so closely packed any inclination inconveniences the person seated behind. in all respects save for the name and price this replicated a cheap budget airline. i expected more from SA. the flight crew was brusque and made it appear that they were grudgingly doing one s personal favor rather than their job"
Pros: "Very organized"
Cons: "Wish the cabin crew speak more universal language, English, and the snack between meals more regularly without having to ask."
Pros: "The service and especially the flight stewart, he has to be the best one EVER!!!"
Cons: "I was too distracted by the professionalism, friendliness and care of the fight stewart to see anything bad."
Cons: "Rude flight attendant! She opened the food tray on my lap and instead of informing me to put my seat upright, she did it for me as though I was a child."
Pros: "Great Staff"
Cons: "Being too old to listen to crying baby's in the economy (Cattle Car) section of the airplane."
Pros: "The new plane was amazing on my way back from Singapore to Chicago. The staff is extremely courteous. The food was good which included some traditional Korean food options and some western cuisine."
Cons: "On my way from Chicago to Singapore, they had an old plane and the business class was mediocre at best. The seats were uncomfortable. They were stacked side by side and did not have a "personal pod" formation which in my honest opinion is quite a waste of thousands of dollars you paid to travel. Additionally, the entertainment was just okay. There were not too many great options of movies and for the old plane, the screens were really bad."
Pros: "The food choices, included Korean dishes. The disposal slippers are great when taking shoes off. The air hostesses were friendly and helpful. Good leg room."
Cons: "Movie selections were not that great, many good current movies were not available. Seat does not have enough lower back support, was literally having to sit on my pillow and blanket due to lower back pain."
Pros: "I loved the service, and comfort"
Cons: "The transfer time was too slim. I literally sprinted through the airport. I'm not exaggerating. I actually sprinted. My bag wasn't as quick however and didn't make the transfer. :("
Pros: "The leg room was pretty generous compared to other airlines."
Cons: "The entertainment system worked alright but a bit old-fashioned. The airplane safety video seemed like it was made in the 90s. The food on the return flight was really bad"
Pros: "Korea Air is a great airline. Jin Air (for the return part) was OK. The flight attendants of BOTH airlines are GREAT, but the seats in Jin Air are cramped."
Cons: "Korea Air is a great airline. Jin Air (for the return part) was OK. The flight attendants of BOTH airlines are GREAT, but the seats in Jin Air are cramped."
Cons: "food bad, poor selection"
Pros: "Boarded on time and quickly. Smooth ride made me fall asleep for most of the flight almost the second I sat down (I had been out the night before so that probably also explains it). They left a note saying I was sleeping when they gave out meals and offered it to me even though we were about to descend. I didn't eat the food, nor did I use the in-flight entertainment, so I can't attest to the quality in those regards."
Cons: "Seats a little uncomfortable but this time around I got a window seat as well as two empty seats behind me so I was able to stretch out a bit more and be liberal with my space."
Pros: "Crews are kind and nice. No complain about the service the crews provided."
Cons: "The chair, need to be more comfortable"
Cons: "Coach seats were adequate, but for a long flight it is hard to be really comfortable."
Pros: "I could never have survived that long a trip on a cramped US airline sitting in a center seat."
Cons: "I don't like their policy of closing all the blinds when it is daylight outside."
Pros: "Loved it!"
Pros: "Korean Airlines service is awesome. The flight attendants are attentive, sharp and customer service oriented."
Pros: "I like the City airport service in Seoul, you can drop off your luggage early so you can enjoy the city more."
Cons: "They are not quite ready for their electronic boarding pass and apple watch features. Although they have an App, it only goes far as checking in 48 hours early. The food is not good."
Pros: "Service of the flight attendants was excellent, they were courteous, pleasant and professional sort of like the old days of the flying industry. Language was a bit difficult for me to interpret however they took whatever time needed to make sure I understood their communication. Everything is tidy and clean. A good variety of movies, games, music and information channels was provided.I will fly korean Air in the future."
Cons: "Boarding was a challenge because the gate staff did not announce in English. It would be more organized if they boarded sets of rows in sequence instead of mass boarding for economy. Also had a problem with transfer at Bangkok Airport. Fortunately I had adequate time for the connecting flight but the transfer area was not opened until 7pm. The transfer process is all new to me and not really easy to understand until the first experience. The Arrival and departure boards rotate airline information which was initially difficult to understand. The headsets were a problem in reference to fitting, volume and quality of tone."
Pros: "The cabin attendants were very attentive. Food and beverages were appreciated. Hot cloths to refresh ourselves were also appreciated. Needless to say, the skill of the personnel in the cockpit is also acknowledged. The blankets, pillow, and water were also a nice touch."
Cons: "The seats were comfortable, but I wish they had more cushioning for this long flight."
Pros: "The flights were excellent. Hong Kong to Seoul and Seoul to Seattle. Business class lounge in Hong Kong was comfortable."
Cons: "The business class lounge in Seoul was very crowded with non-business class passengers. Not a pleasant experience."
Pros: "Great leg room and wonderful flight staff. Coffee was excellent."
Cons: "Movie selection too limited and the same movies were offered on the return flight. The smell of sesame oil was a bit overpowering on the flight due to food choices offered. Additionally, an American/European style breakfast option would have been nice. We were offered two meals on our 14 hour overnight flight and both consisted of what we would consider to be dinner or lunch options."
Pros: "On time takeoff and arrival"
Cons: "Entertainment choices e.g. (movie choices) limited. alcoholic drink choices limited too"
Pros: "Very friendly crew and quick boarding process"
Cons: "Seat is a bit narrow,"
Pros: "The food, the service,the entertainment were the best. Every time the bathrooms were used they were cleaned, you never see that on US based flights, ever!!!"
Cons: "Lights in cabin too bright while serving meals. Could turn it down a notch"
Pros: "International flight should be Two luggage check in, all other flights I used they are two luggage to be check in, and one carry on, but not this Korean Air, for sure I wouldn't be using again.,"
Pros: "Koreans are naturally respectful, making for a very pleasant flight"
Pros: "Excellent service and comfort, from start to finish"
Pros: "The air hostess is very kind and helpful when she noticed that I was not well and she has offered me a honey lemon drink even I didn't request."
Pros: "This was my first experience with Korean Air, I was very impressed. I would definitely fly with them again."
Cons: "special meals especially Hindu meals non vegetarian"
Pros: "Good experince. Crew was fantastic."
Pros: "Beverage service satisfactory."
Cons: "The fact that this JAL Flight was operated by Korean Air meant that not only was the staff different, the the plane itself was an older and smaller model with extremely little room and zero entertainment systems. Both of these developments were severely disappointing given that the 2 hour round trip was 440USD, and flying on a budget airline would have provided basically the same experience for much cheaper. Furthermore the flight was delayed for over an hour taking off at almost 10:00pm instead of 8:40pm. The meal service was quite disappointing as well given the long wait. This delay nearly caused me to miss the last train into the city, in which case I would have needed to take an incredibly expensive Tokyo taxi ride to my accommodation. This was avoided by luck alone, as the airport immigration lines at Haneda airport were uncharacteristically empty. All in all, it was a surprisingly frustrating experience and remarkably stressful. I have known JAL and Korean Air to both be excellent carriers and was quite disappointed to have such a poor flight experience could have been exceeded by an average Peach or Vanilla Air flight."
Pros: "The flight staff is always a pleasure to fly with."
Pros: "Services, and the large comfortable plane."
Cons: "Long flight"
Cons: "Again, my special meal request wasn't found and I ended up eating nothing"
"Airplane food was not good from Manila to Chicago. But the flight from Chicago to Manila - food was great! Big contrast"
Cons: "On long flights, the seats need to be more comfortable and there needs to be more entertainment options. Also was not sure why we could not book seats even though we booked tickets in October."
Pros: "Time is good."
Cons: "With long flight these two are a must ! Food is very limited and needs to have more movies."
Pros: "Very clean. Crew was very good. Food was for the most part fine."
Cons: "Entertainment was pretty lacking. No paid WiFi service on the airplane for a modern country’s air fleet... only texting."
Pros: "Always excellent Japanese service."
Cons: "No entertainment system, only one channel for everyone in the middle of the airplane like in the 80's. No reclining seats, sit straight only, but decent leg room, unless you are taller than 6ft."
Pros: "Onboard service was perfect - prompt, friendly and professional"
Cons: "The cabin was always kept a bit warm"
Pros: "Crew was amazing.Premium economy seats were superb. Food was also good."
Cons: "Add a low carb meal option"
Pros: "Crew is responsive to requests, and very polite."
Cons: "Cabin temperature was 81F during the night, making it too hot to sleep."
Pros: "There was a lot of leg room and updated features. Also the candy they gave out was good."
Cons: "The food was not to my liking,"
Cons: "Lousy food taste bland out of date movies"
Cons: "Food was really unpleasant and entertainment all out of date movies"
Pros: "The crew was great, friendly and helpful. The food was good and the overall service on the plane was great."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed from Los Angeles and we did not make our connecting flight in Tokyo. The next option they had was a full 24 hours later so we ended up taking the train. I tried to make adjustments to one of my flights for the return home and was told that is not an option."
Cons: "Narita to Honolulu sector has not enough food for breakfast noting Honolulu airport has got nothing to offer!!!"
Pros: "That it didn’t crash"
Cons: "It was very delayed and then the luggage still hasn’t come out"
Pros: "Food was ok for economy and they bring more coffee when you ask. The flight wasn’t so full so the seat next to me was empty and also I could sit in the exit isle to work on my laptop"
Cons: "The seat pitch is such that you can’t use a laptop in a normal seat. This would have been a big issue if there wasn’t a seat in the exit row for me to borrow. Staff fine but nothing special."
Pros: "I like the way the flight attendants treat the passengers. They are very courteous, friendly and wearing very sweet smiles.The airplane is very prompt when it comes to arrival and departure schedule. Thank you very much for providing me a wheelchair which made my travel more convenient."
Cons: "So far there was nothing that I didn't like. The food was good and the airplane was clean."
Pros: "Economy premium was very comfortable. Best service I’ve had on an airplane since Pan American days."
Cons: "I didn’t like the boarding process one long line. However, it moved quickly and unlike American airlines there was plenty of overhead space. They let you check 2 bags free. Of course, it is an international flight."
Pros: "Very efficient"
Cons: "Food was not good"
Cons: "The food was dreadful. It was like being back in the 1990s. Kids entertainment options were poor. The original toy story movie was it!"
Cons: "Sitting space"
Pros: "The extra inches were nice. Fairly comfortable seat. And the ice cream was a nice treat."
Cons: "I thought I would get a little more than a few extra inches in Economy Plus. Maybe an overnight packet (ear plugs, eye mask, toothbrush?) and/or a foot rest for the extra money, but it was literally only a few extra inches of space."
Pros: "Friendly staff. English language not too much of an issue. Ample personal space in economy class compared to other carriers."
Cons: "Asian Vegetarian meal not very good. Seems like whichever company they use to buy the food makes a half hearted effort in their selections for the food tray. If you're going to put a couple small pieces of lettuce and a cherry tomato into an already small container and call it salad, why bother? The rest of the meal wasn't pleasing either. The fruit was nearly frozen it was so cold. The entree had a few different things but still a weird combination of veggies."
Pros: "On time. Flight attendants don't shy away from helping passengers put their carryons in the cabin compartments. They were there in a split seconf to assist you - ANA flight attendants only. Food was great in ANA airlines. Toilet is clean. Boardinh was orderly."
Pros: "I like the way the stewardesses treating all passengers especially economy class- very professional , attentive to needs and service with great smile- overall wonderful experience and to think I had never heard of this airline prior to flying it for the first time was very impressionable for me"
Cons: "The in flights entertainment was a little limiting to me- but with the great service by crew- it didn't matter so much . But a little more wide variety could go a long way - or more new releases"
Pros: "Very helpful and accommodating flight attendants ... all with a smile!"
Pros: "Food was good also"
Pros: "more new movies will be better"
Pros: "La puntualidad absoluta, la amabilidad de la tripulación y los baños impecables durante las 13 hr de vuelo."
Cons: "Creo que la comida podría mejorarse un poco pero es un detalle mínimo"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very helpful."
Cons: "It is a very long flight."
Pros: "Crew very helpful and reassuring though plane late on arrival in tokyo."
Cons: "Due to snow in Seattle area plan departed 2 hours late which made a short connection time, but all went well."
Pros: "I like the nice and warm service from the crew"
Cons: "Food can be more variable but overall its oke"
Cons: "Width of the seat for me was bit tight when in a flat bed position."
Pros: "The entertainment and food were very good. It’s a long flight, so more cushions in the seat would be great. I felt like my tailbone was getting bruised."
Cons: "The entertainment and food were very good. It’s a long flight, so more cushions in the seat would be great. I felt like my tailbone was getting bruised."
Pros: "Great airline!"
Cons: "some of the gates can be long walk"
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours and people where freezing in terminal. They eventually brought blankets and snacks."
Pros: "I like the courteous and efficient service of the whole crew."
Cons: "I didn't like part of the journey to USA to be run by UNITED."
Pros: "The food were good and just enough for the inflight need"
Cons: "The time to get to the next flight is so tight! I wish there's a 30 minutes more so I don't have to rush and be the last one to get in the plane."
Pros: "The airline made sure my family sat together when I couldn't get seats together online. The food was waaaaaay better than the US carriers, and the service was impeccable. 5 stars for ANA all around!"
Pros: "The stewardess constantly walked the aisle looking to assist the passengers...no disappearing act like one finds on other airlines. I was in business class, so the food was very tasty."
Cons: "Seats seem extra small, narrow and short. As a window seat there was very little room between the seat and the wall. Food and entertainment average to below average (compared with Qantas, Singapore Airlines)"
Cons: "I did not like the delay of the plane which, instead of taking of at 10pm took off at 7h45 am."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful stewardess"
Cons: "Seats could be more comfortable."
Pros: "I love the food and the girls was fantastic"
Pros: "highly efficient processes on ground (Narita airport), clean and enough space in airplane, exteremely supportive and polite staff"
Pros: "Nice friendly staff in the plane. Nice friendly staff at the airport, although very slow and getting confused easily. Need more training."
Cons: "Check-in process at the airport was ridiculous ! One ANA staff sends us to wait to a certain counter after looking at our ENTIRE trip (all 3 segments), only to find out 20min later that we were supposed to go to ANOTHER counter, because our ultimate destination was International (USA). Also, boarding passes had to be REPRINTED in Tokyo for some reason. Note: on the way to Okinawa 2 weeks earlier, we had similar poor experience, but we only had to wait 5 min in the wrong lane. Overall ANA staff is very nice, friendly and smiling, but seems to get overwhelmed and confused very easily, and take FOREVER to do simple tasks that their US counterparts do 3x or 4x FASTER. --> do more regular TRAINING of your staff at airport counters !"
Pros: "The plane was new and the seats recline quite a bit. The movie selection was solid (though disorganized)."
Cons: "The food service was a plastic bag of goodies (bag of chips, water bottle, toblerone, kit kat, pastry) - what?! The turbulence announcement was made once in english and japanese by the auto-plane service followed by the crew announcing it again in both English and Japanese. The same was done with the duty free. The plane pressure also felt very strong and cause discomfort for the wife. The movie selection was solid (but badly organized) and the TV show selection wasn't terrible. It should all be better. Come on ANA! Contact me for recommendations."
Pros: "Good air crew. Good manners and attention to detail. Excellent members at check-in."
Pros: "My son can not eat peanuts, I am so happy you offer the peanut free meals. And ANA always have good sevice."
Cons: "More food variety"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable, flight attendants were attentive and the food wasn't bad."
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 boarding, the attention to detail exactly how i remembered Singapore Airlines from many times i travelled."
Cons: "The food was disgraceful, the entertainment, the quality of the movies was poor.."
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: "Great service."
Cons: "Disinfectant smell."
Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "My seat was very hard"
Pros: "Seats more comfortable than premium economy, staff more helpful!"

Cons: "Outdated Cabin Fit Out"
Pros: "Great amount of legroom in the seats we were lucky enough to be granted. Entertainment was good!"
Cons: "Frantic service from crew. They seemed anxious and rushed at all times. Food was also very average."
Pros: "Able to check luggage in 48 hrs before flight saving $50 storage fees, so went back into CBD for the day."
Cons: "20 mins late boarding meant plane left 35 mins late although still arrived on time."
Pros: "Staff, food and emenities great for economy class"
Cons: "Inflight entertainment wasn't as extensive as in previous years."
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: "Liked the service"
Cons: "Nothing special."
Pros: "I felt safe ( important to me) and had just the right amount of attention from staff Very comfortable"
Pros: "Was very old plane but was good"
Cons: "Food and crew was well"
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"
Cons: "breakfast was terrible"
Pros: "Everything was smooth. Although we took of a little late but we landed as per schedule. Service was personalised! Great trip."
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: "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: "Singapore service is always outstanding"
Cons: "temp on plane was freezing and even two blankets did not suffice. Everyone was really cold."
Pros: "No fuss flight but lacking that something extra"
Cons: "Crew rarely walked aisles with water. Gluten free meal was mediocre. Seat was old and uncomfortable. Entertainment options were mediocre."
Cons: "cramped uncomfortable seats freezing cold"
Cons: "The food was very poor indeed, the entertainment system was not working in my seat or the seat behind, I had to move to another seat"
Pros: "Changed by very helpful ground staff from lousy seats to exit row at no cost."
Cons: "Entertainment interface showing its age."
Pros: "Leg room in economy is good, even for tall people. Food was actually quite good."
Cons: "Two of our family's seats would not recline, although they were not near an exit row."
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."
Cons: "old facilities"
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."
Cons: "Horrendously uncomfortable business-class seat for a redeye flight."
Pros: "Movie selection, very helpful crew and good quality food."
Cons: "Aircraft was dated with old business class seats which are worn. Minimal options in movies to watch"
Cons: "The processing of passengers. The entertainment. The seating arrangements. Three big guys next to each other is horrible."
Cons: "Usually offer water at your seat repeatedly. Only one time in 11 hour flight? Corona prevention?"
Pros: "Upgraded to better seating room without request!"
Cons: "I cannot think if anything. Having the eye masks certainly helped sleeping on the flight a little easier."
Pros: "Seats were really comfortable and find was great"
Cons: "In flight movies and TV shows we're a bit dated and didn't find any of them very desirable"
Cons: "Food was identical to previous flight, which made me ill. There were only tiny drop down screens for every few rows, so it was hard to see the movie they chose for everyone."
Cons: "More movies to choose from. Food."
Cons: "We purchased premium economy tickets but could not select our seats. We were assigned separated seats and had to call Eva Air customer service but they would not help. When we arrived at the check in counter our seats had been relocated and were able to sit together. Kind of upsetting having this hanging over our heads until the last moment."
Pros: "Boarding process and take off was the most efficient - truly impressive! I don’t think this had anything to do with the airline, but every flight with them was so quiet (no crying babies/children, loud adult conversations), I thought I could hear the pin drop! Their safety demonstration was uniquely done by dancer, which made it interesting to watch every time! I left my jacket on one of my flights, but they returned it to me when I boarded the next flight - I was gratefully surprised! They had complementary tooth brush/toothpaste, ear plugs and eye masks in the restrooms. I thought this was a good way to reduce passing out items not all passengers wanted. I wish all airlines could copy these amazing features from them."
Cons: "Their meals were underwhelming- in four flights on my trip, they were basically the same main course. The rolls with margarine, same fruit and strongly cultural seasoned vegetables that were served every time, all of which I could not eat. I have liked every airline meals and hospital food, but their food was below institutional food quality. For an Asian airline, the flight attendants were rather crude in their speech and mannerisms. I could barely hear and understand the announcements in spite the fact that passengers were extremely quiet. Their choices of movies were very poor; it seemed that 3 out of 4 flights had similar options."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Comfy seats. Timely meals and snacks."
Cons: "Food is too salty"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "Boarding followed priority order. Blankets were good, and extra pillow available upon request."
Cons: "Better food options. There was reduced options due to strike, but the food quality was not good."
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable."
Cons: "It was very difficult to understand the flight attendants, flight was very bumpy and it was delayed about 2 hours in all. We had to deplane in Taipei, and then sat on the tarmac in NYC for another 40 minutes."
Pros: "I loved all the free food, even on short-haul flights!"
Pros: "It was the Badtz Maru plane"
Cons: "There were bulkhead seats that people were not allowed to move to even though most of the rows were full. The bulkhead row remained completely empty."
Pros: "Comfortable seat with good storage and lavatories are clean and big."
Pros: "Crews were very nice"
Cons: "Seat could have been a bit more comfortable and a little more leg room"
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "Rude customer service. Hard to understand English. unhelpful staff. Flight was delayed an hour and a half and during the entire time waiting in the lounge, the staff did not notify passengers about the delay until the new boarding time. Updates along the way would have been appreciated."
Pros: "Stewardesses were helpful. Leg room was adequate."
Cons: "Slow in picking up food trays after meals ended."

Pros: "Movie on board is good"
Cons: "Food not so nice"
Pros: "Hou-tia, everything from the food, entertainment was exactly what I needed and expected. Our connection was close so Eva had an attendant lead us through the airport in order for us to make our connection."
Pros: "Good food, lots of space, clean plane and friendly flight attendants"
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: "Nothing ."
Cons: "Poor service ."
Pros: "I Like the AirPlane d staff but not d food.There food should needs improvements it looks ordinary."
Cons: "Absolutely their “FooD” a lot of riders or my friends & family complains their food."
Pros: "Great food & entertainment choices"
Cons: "The crew should have been more accommodating as I have a broken ankle and am in a cast and have to walk with crutches. It is painful and the only thing that helps the pain is to have it elevated. The crew was not accommodating to help me switch seats to one with more leg room."
Pros: "Flight was fast and the staff were friendly."
Pros: "location design service"
Pros: "Boarding and service by the crew wers great."
Cons: "Food was a little to much asian."

Pros: "Friendliness and courtesy of crew, modern plane and good food. Well definitively fly EVA more!"
Cons: "In my Emergency seat position, whenever someone opened the washroom door, the washroom light would wake me as the light would shine in my eyes. Maybe offering eye cover for extended seat position would help."

Cons: "Food is always lacking, but its not a really big issue for me."
Pros: "The food and drink service was great and at no extra cost"
Pros: "In flight food was delicious and crew was very friendly"
Cons: "I had a strange experience with flight attendants who were obsessed with open and closed Windows (honestly why does it matter?) and was constantly being told to take off headphones which no other airlines make you do anymore. The flight attendants were just overbearing and rude at times."
Pros: "I enjoyed the fact that they were organized professional and efficent"
Cons: "My last flight was through United I will never fly with them again"
Pros: "The toilets are so clean all the time."
Cons: "Everything was great!"
