Pros: "On time Smooth landing and take off Airport was beautiful, nice clean toilets Lovely and polite staff on board Food was okay Nice range of in-flight entertainment"
Cons: "Air port does not have automatic internet connection We were there for 8 hours with no internet because we had no international roaming to receive the PIN via SMS. The four PINS generated by the counter staff did not work. We all took turn to try to no avail. by then we have walked too far from the counter we could not be bother going back. No airport that I've been to had poor internet service connection like this airport, yet it is supposed to be THE WORLD'S NUMBER ONE AIRLINE. We boarded at 11.30pm, last time we flew with them they gave us supper. Last night they gave us only water. We went to sleep hungry till the morning. Since when they started to operate like those cheap airlines that you have to pay for your food? And the night package did not have eye mask.... how could we sleep... ? Singapore airline could learn from Qtar. Very very disappointed."
Pros: "As a frequent flyer, I have found out that the few dollars i spend more on SQ is well worth it"
Pros: "Seats are big as old plane"
Cons: "Very old plane, entertainment system therefore very old too. Service was slow, 2 hours after start till they serve dinner, another 1 hour to clear. No special boarding for staralliance gold members"
Pros: "The cabin crew were fantastic. Food was abundant. Most boarding systems worked well. Choosing seats was confusing on website so we were allocated seating. The newer planes had a fantastic touch screen entertainment system. The seats on the newer planes were much more comfortable and roomy"
Cons: "The small seats are squishy on the older planes. The entertainment system on the older planes were dated and difficult to use. I felt sick after the flight to UK but felt fine coming home after one long flight on a newer plane."
Cons: "Ran out of options for dinner and could not eat the macaroni cheese they had on offer, so got 2 small packets of nuts instead...international flight running out of food options? Pretty slack. A part of the interior wall fell off onto my foot upon take off and I had to hold it in place for a while until a hostess came....doesn’t give you the best feeling when the plane starts breaking on take off. One of the male stewards was appalling towards a young mum I sat next too...too the extent of giving her dirty looks because she spilled a bit of water on the seat and then told her she had to pack everything away she was using, including the baby wipes! I stepped in and told him how this was not ok and all other staff members were helpful and he was making this Mum upset. He should not be working for such a people friendly reputable airline! Maybe Jetstar instead! Was appalled at the entire flight to be honest!"
Pros: "Quick boarding. Great entertainment system Good staff"
Cons: "Not comfortable seats"
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: "Good seats with great screens. Usb, headphone jack that works with regular headphones, and a regular power outlet! Tray tables upgraded overall and have a mirror behind a slide. Even the seatback pockets are better with multiple pockets including one that fits most mobile phones. The windows turn tinted blue instead of drawing shades down—what?!"
Cons: "would like regular water bottles to be available for drinking"
Pros: "Boarding was better handled in Singapore - but then that’s Singapore! All very smooth and French champagne served on the flight all the way home! The Kayak website is excellent and I wouldn’t hesitate to use it again - $1,000 cheaper for the flight from Moscow to Singapore than what I could get direct from Singapore Airlines! Well done Kayak!"
Pros: "Crew very friendly"
Pros: "Spacious business class seats, toilets super clean and well stocked. The best eye shades ever encountered."
Cons: "Cabin little bit cold"
Cons: "Food was terrible , crew were rude, there were delays due to airline problems at both ends of the flight, there was a complete lack of communication about the problems and how long the delays were going to be. Handling of missed connections was abysmal... Overall extremely disappointing."
Pros: "Everything From the food to the drinks to the comfort"
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. Plus the flatbed lay out meant you were basically lying in a question mark position, not so goof for tall people like my husband. 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."
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. It is a long flight and being dehydrated on a plane is not a good thing."
Pros: "Very good service"
Cons: "Very poor entertainment. Upgrade options at the transfer desk not very clear and the staff present there not courteous"
Cons: "SQ860 flight on 4th April morning delayed and greatly affected my today trip scheduled."
Pros: "Great service and comfort."
Cons: "Food was bland and breakfast availability was a joke. On any flight, passengers do not want spicy or evening meals, and having a limited amount number of breakfasts available was not amusing. The crew had done 5 rows and we were 6 row from kitchen and they had run out ."
Pros: "business seats were excellent"
Cons: "all was good"
Pros: "Frequent serving of drinks, huge selection of latest films on large screen, comfortable ride"
Pros: "I liked the space I had to stretch out, 3 seats to myself in economy enabled me to get some solid sleep between meals. The crew werebalways very polite and friendly."
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: "Modern Aircraft , good seat ,Crew friendliness"
Pros: "The service from the ground crew and cabin crew are very professional. Friendly and very helpful."
Pros: "Friendliness and efficiency of crew. Comfortable seats and in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Not much. This airline is up there with the best."
Pros: "I felt safe ( important to me) and had just the right amount of attention from staff Very comfortable"
Pros: "Food was ok"
Cons: "Entertainment system are old age and poor quality TFT screen"
Pros: "Free seat next to me. Brilliant entertainment Very tasty food Excellent service"
Cons: "Nothing! Best daytime flight to europe! And home before midnight"
Pros: "Again very friendly and efficient service ."
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: "Wonderful and warm crew made me feel at home. Loads of entertainment but best of all, comfortable seat/bed allowed for a goodnight's sleep!"
Pros: "Due to my ACLS training yesterday, I was not so well since morning and I took medicine in the morning and I forgot to stand by one more course of medicine . So I asked the staff for paracetamol when I reach to cabin. She response me very first with medicine and a cup of water . Thank you so much crews members of silk air flight MI518 from Singapore to Yangon ."
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: "Friendliness of crew"
Pros: "Everything else was good"
Cons: "Old aircraft with tired looking seats."
Pros: "No fuss flight but lacking that something extra"
Pros: "Getting up at 4am on a Monday (post Singapore 7s) - couldn't have been a better timing for a free upgrade (as the plane was full). Travelling on Singapore Air is always a pleasure - but that made it even better....."
Pros: "The overall experience was good. Crews are friendly and approachable. Food taste good."
Cons: "Beware of babies on board."
Pros: "Arrival in Canberra was excellent."
Cons: "Horrendously uncomfortable business-class seat for a redeye flight."
Pros: "We love travelling Singapore Airlines and always try to travel with them if we can"
Pros: "It's good that they have vegeterian options"
Cons: "Indian food was stale"
Pros: "The vouchers at the airport enabling us to have a shower just lovely"
Cons: "Enterntainment average on last flight and seats were hard."
Pros: "Veruy efficient"
So here's the rub - my flight was booked through Chatdeal even though I bought it under the Kayak umbrella. All the return flights were theoretically through Air New Zealand, however except for the initial leg from New Zealand, they were all partnered flights. So when I arrived at the airport in New Zealand they could only issue me my ticket to Fiji. Once in Fiji I had to do some serious leg work and finagling to get my ticket to Los Angeles through Fiji Air. This included a monitored covid RAT that I wasn't aware I needed to do. So I gave the score I did because of the complexity and annoyance created in the process of getting a boarding pass for my Nadi-LA flight.
Pros: "Great crew and counter staffing. Only took about 10 minutes to get my ticket and half of that was due to some snag with the NZ visa details."
Pros: "All great, except limited entertainment and wifi was n.a."
Cons: "Wifi, I was on replacement aircraft and no wifi for the whole flight"
Pros: "The seat is very comfortable And the crew is very nice and helpful"
Cons: "The checking service in Taiwan And the manager’s Attitude toward Crisis handling"
Cons: "Terrible service and all around outcome. Would not fly Air New Zealand again"
Pros: "I really liked how instructions were said clearly with visuals, in particular, the video at the start of the flight. It brought a sense of relief and wonder. I enjoyed the lunch I had too. The lamb curry is sublime. I would have it every day to be honest. I was also lucky that I had passengers who sat next to me, who were kind and lovely."
Cons: "Only the take off from the flight. It made me dizzy and nautious."
Pros: "The crew is amazing. Always friendly, smiling and happy to oblige. Love the New Zealand hospitality. The inflight entertainment has so many programmes to watch, and the list of music options to listen in to is well stocked. Food is excellent. Obviously overate in the 9 1/2 hour flight."
Cons: "You could have warned about the 2nd bag fee! I paid $80 for having a 2nd bag!"
Pros: "Good for a sheot flight"
Pros: "Crew was really nice however slightly absent during the flight."
Cons: "Drinks should have been more frequently offered . Refreshments/water seemed hard to come by I had to chase them down in the galley only to get luke warm water...? Seats are pretty cramped and small with not much room."
Cons: "After scanning boarding passes at gate, flight crew required us to show them again at the plane door. We had already stowed our phones, as I think others had. Minor issue but caused what seemed like an unnecessary backup at the cabin door. Our other domestic Air New Zealand flight didn't require it."
Cons: "Air NZ serves the special meals first but never offers passengers a drink. By the time the meal and drinks trolleys come round for the rest of passengers, most people have eaten their special meal."
Cons: "Suuuppppeerrrr delayed and I didn’t feel that an empty middle seat to be considered business class on my2nd leg from London to Munich."
Pros: "Great pitch"
Cons: "All good: 777:300"
Pros: "I liked that there was food available and that they offered complimentary snacks and drinks. Some of the crew members were nice and offered good service. I liked that they offered some type of entertainment and free wifi."
Cons: "I didn't like that some of the crew members were not very nice. I also disliked that some of the crew members drove the food/beverage cart violently through the isles and saw as one of the crew members rammed into another person's leg, to only say "oh sorry" and kept on going. This same crew member missed picking up the trash from an entire row and was throwing trash on the floor. She was more interested in caring for a baby on board (not sure if it was her daughter or family member) than the rest of the passengers. I also didn't like the seats were so close to each other, the person in front of me almost hit my face when he reclined his seat all the way back. There wasn't much room to breath let alone stretch."
Pros: "The staff was very helpful"
Pros: "We liked that we got to watch some entertainment for an economy seat."
Cons: "The check in process was a disaster- and none of the crew knew what they were doing. They were very unhelpful and on topof that kayak did not let us know there would be a $160 fee if we did not order a seat with a baggage. It was not clear on the third party site. It was a very costly for us, a couple who is on a budget. i book From kayak all the time, and know exactly when I am booking an economy ticket vs a more upgrade. We had to pay an unexpected $320 on the day of flight. It was ridiculous and while we were boarding the flight attendants held us up again bc we had not paid the fee. But we tried to pay the fee at the front desk the first time and then we paid it at the gate and then boarded last on the plane. It was awful. The staff did not know anything and we were not treated great. Super unprofessional and disappointed at Kayak for not laying out all the costs ahead of me."
Pros: "food and crew service"
Cons: "Business class Seats are uncomfortable, cushion is not that soft, sides are narrow and too tall, hard square arm rest on the right, drink tray is behind your shoulder, hard to fasten seat belt. Ride was very rough in both directions. Not worth the price paid."
Pros: "the staffs and the boarding experienve"
Cons: "We were not told that we had to buy meals and drinks ahead of time?! We had no food for an 8 hour flight and couldn't even buy a soft drink?! We were on an outdated plane leased plane from EVA Air and there were maybe 10 movies to choose from? Also, my reading light was broken. Not the level of care that I've come to know from Air NZ and really disappointed."
Pros: "Excellent movies available. Decent food, regular water service, and pleasant staff. Will definitely look to fly Air New Zealand again."
Cons: "Not enough legroom. But I'm 6'2, so it's the same on all airlines."
Pros: "The boarding process was nice because Star Alliance gold members can board early and get miles for the flights. They also had lots of movie options. Decent flight."
Cons: "I bought my ticket on kayak because on the search filter, it said 1 carry-on bag and 1 check-in bag but after the e-ticket was issued it said that it was a no luggage and no meal ticket. I had to pay excess in baggage fees ($100 AUD for 1 check in bag) and during the flight, all you get is coffee, tea or water. You have to pay for meals or soft drinks. I think if I bought on air New Zealand website, I would’ve gotten a better idea of all the fare types and pay a little bit more to get the proper amenities."
Pros: "The airport was great! Very easy access, fast check in and security. Loved the LOTR theme. Uneventful and beautiful flight."
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "arrived early at destination ground crew helpful with seating"
Pros: "Crew was so friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Cold flight Food average at best Overall nothing flash and nothing bad solid average"
Pros: "The actual flight wasn’t terrible"
Cons: "I missed my initial flight...I was short on time and rushed to get to the gate so I didn’t recheck my bag. Got there and told they moved me because my bag hadn’t been checked."
Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "The chicken pasta meal was pretty dried out and terrible"
Pros: "This flight was great. The team were friendly and the plane was also well air conditioned."
Cons: "The sold out flight to air New Zealand. Had to purchase bags again even though already purchased."
Pros: "Friendly crew, timely response, food was nice"
Pros: "Awesome customer service, I was impressed."
Pros: "Had premium economy and on such a short flight is luxury. Boarding via the stairs as it's an island was good. Crew are always great. PE is pretty comfy on NZ. This was a day flight so we didn't sleep. Food was great. Great range of entertainment options but can't wait for Wifi!"
Pros: "Crew was professional and friendly, food was excellent, entertainment choices were fantastic."
Cons: "The seats were a bit uncomfortable, we were in coach, but they were not horrible. Just lacking lumber support and didn't recline very far."
Pros: "Cabin crew was excellent"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "I was recovering from a cold and didn't anticipate having ear problems but during decent I began to experience some pain. It was all new to me as I had never been through this before. Fortunately the crew was kind and they provided a sinus decongestant in a cup for me to sniff and breath in so the smell could open up my nasal passages and it helped a bit."
Cons: "The sharp decent while arriving."
Pros: "Everything, space seat"
Pros: "Purchased an exit row aisle seat - all the leg room I could ask for. Close to toilets - no odor issues. Good meals. Staff basically courteous (though not unfailingly - occasionally a tad blunt and titchy - a common experience for me on Air NZ)."
Cons: "Air NZ website states exit row seating purchase comes with priority boarding. When I asked about this at the gate counter I was told I would be seated by row number. Seems like this is a common issue with Air NZ - see e.g., skytrax website reviews. The website advertising is inaccurate if not false."
Pros: "Good lleg room in the aircraft. Friendly service."
Pros: "Happy helpful crew"
Cons: "Slow to board and no gate on arrival. Had to be bused to terminal and waited ten minutes for the bus to arrive."
Pros: "I had read quite a bit of negatively but although I have had better service and more comfort it was better than I had herd it would be. The in seat entertainment system was better than any I had experienced."
Cons: "For the most part the crew was very nice. But the attendant we had lacked some professionalism and seemed very tired. We didn't always get what we asked for as well with no explanation why."
Pros: "Service and attitude superb"
Cons: "comfort and seats. On the flight back, although crowded, it would have been nice to have the assistance that 3 large guys could have used to find a seat. Spent the entire flight sweating between two large gentlemen. Luckily, they were polite and we all managed."
Pros: "Food, space, service. Arrived much more rested than in economy."
Pros: "The entertainment was great, crew is always very friedly and great with kids. They are always on time and very helpul. I always look for Air Newzealand before I fly!"
Pros: "Very comfortable flight. The full range of entertainment made the time go quickly. Professional crew."
Cons: "I know it's an airplane, but even so, the food was astonishingly bad."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and professional. The aircraft was clean and well maintained. Food and entertainment were great."
Cons: "Completely satisfied."
Pros: "Good seats and leg room in economy. Crew and service were friendly and enjoyable."
Cons: "Information from Qantas on the last minute delay to the flight and ongoing changes to the timing, was poor. We got most of our information on the delay and timing was largely from other sources."
Cons: "The entertaimnet headset socket was faulty and I had to hold the jack in a specific way so I could hear the vocal channels. Sometimes it just dropped out all together. Tried multiple headsets but having the socket and jack on the inside of the armrest where it was so easily knocked by you leg was so incredibly stupid and made it hard to get comfortable or move position in the seat. First time I've ever seen this on a plane. Ok, so Qantas got us there safely but the inflight movies its what makes it bearable."
Pros: "Healthy airline food option, friendly helpful service, use of name and I'm on the bottom rung of ff status??"
Pros: "everything was lovely"
Cons: "the outdated on flight entertainment system"
Pros: "seats - very comfy flat bed to use on overnight flight"
Cons: "too warm, hard to sleep"
Pros: "Friendly efficient service. Lots of smiles. Food was great. Very comfortable seating"
Cons: "Toilet was very cramped USB charging plug not working. Pretty average range of movies."
Pros: "The Qantas lounge in Singapore is very nice. Nothing special relative to some others like Cathay, but lots of showers and good food are the key for a stopover, and the Qantas Lounge has that. The meal options are better out of Singapore than coming in to Singapore, The "order ahead" breakfast concept, where you place your order for breakfast when you board has it pros and cons. The personal service is nice, but one needs to know almost 12 hours ahead of time what they feel like eating. Overall a positive, but for me, it's hard for me to anticipate my appetite. It was my first A380 flight (together with the Sydney - Singapore leg), and overall I was disappointed relative to the Dreamliner. Yet it stands out as a positive the way that Qantas has configured business class on the upper deck. It's quite peaceful."
Cons: "Mostly an issue with security, two separate very long lines. The lines are marked priority and economy, but those are not adhered to. The seats in business class are not very comfortable. I feel like I had more comfortable seats 15 years ago on BA, and the world has come a long way since then. The planned upgrades are sorely needed."
Pros: "Entertainment Options"
Cons: "Confusion in boarding"
Cons: "Flight was nearly an hour late leaving."
Pros: "Singapore airline best for Australia"
Pros: "I don't remember much about this plane. It was nice to get food service for such a short flight. I believe we had the two seats to ourselves, and they were comfortable."
Pros: "Cabin crew were terrific. On board was also very good. Attentive and courteous."
Pros: "Wonderful staff, the flight felt quick and easy."
Cons: "The food, there was no vegetarian option."
Pros: "Delay on LAX to bNE was too late for us to make the connection. And our bags were lost as a result."
Pros: "Boarding from an obscure gate, then being bused quite a long way to the plane was slow and tedious. There were many queues and delays along the way and the plane was late leaving. Food was not great but we we were not offered anything to drink not even water with the meal until we had finished eating. I know crew works hard but that seemed a time management problem. There is no service involved plonking down a tray. Water could be included."
Cons: "All of the above."
Pros: "The staff did the best they could to accommodate everyone on a full flight in economy. The passenger in front of me had a failed entertainment system and the staff handled it very well."
Cons: "The leg room is obviously minimal in economy but compared to Singapore Airlines this was cramped and when the seat in front reclines it's almost impossible to find a comfortable position if you're over 5 foot 9! food was below par."
Pros: "Had problems with check in because of china eastern mishandling our baggage, the Quantas staff got everything sorted for us. Plenty of leg room on the flight and the cabin staff were fantastic, only thing that let it down was the food choice, but, as it was only a 3 hour flight this wasn;t really a problem. Would gladly fly with them again any time."
Pros: "Friendly customer service crew, nice amenities kit, and quick boarding."
Cons: "Old aircraft (737) let’s down a good company and frequent flyers."
Cons: "Food, I cannot get an option to have a Cheese platter. The food has been prepared too far in advance and is tasteless and full or preservatives."
Cons: "The dinner meal was dried and pretty disappointing as was the media selection in coach vlass"
Pros: "Staff service was excellent."
Cons: "Paid for Qantas but got Latam. Not at all the same quality of flight material. Heat hearing strange clicks that I have never experienced on other flights."
Pros: "I liked everything from crew to the plane"
Cons: "Delayed departure as usual unsuitable aircraft (737) for 5 hour flight. It's time Qantas steps up and puts a proper aircraft on the Singapore Perth flight. Even the budgets are more comfortable that this."
Cons: "Checking process could use some improvement; LAX check-in counter staff was NOT customer oriented; got the feeling that either they hate the job and had a bad day?"
Cons: "When my bag got lost"
Pros: "I got to my destination safely and on time. Food and service were above average."
Pros: "Crew were affable and courteous, even if not very attentive."
Cons: "The entertainment system was ancient, with small screens, loose sockets for headphones, flaky performance. Only the content was decent (not good). They announce boarding sequence and then fail to honor/enforce it, allowing a free for all."
Pros: "Very comfortable business class seat, great business lounge in Singapore."
Pros: "It's Australian."
Cons: "Typical overnight flight."
Pros: "Crew was reasonably friendly."
Cons: "Lack of space made it impossible to sleep. Aisle was dangerously dark. Would not surprise me if people experience falls. I know there is a trade off between sleep-friendly darkness and safety for those walking in the cabin. I think you err too much on the side of darkness"
Cons: "The wait time for checked baggage in Melbourne was unacceptable ... 45minutes. This is disgraceful in comparison with other countries. It adds a significant delay to overall journey time."
Pros: "The blankets"
Cons: "Very little leg room compared to other airlines, disorganised & slow crew, offered very little in terms of snacks"
Pros: "The Singapore Qantas lounge is well set up, despite one or two small issues. Boarding was easy after the usual Singapore gate lounge procedures. On board the crew (led by Brigita) could not have been better. I LOVE the 1 -2 - 1 business configuration. Meals and refreshments on board were just great and I enjoyed that the crew didn't disturb me (Emirates are particularly rude in this regard) when it was clear I was sleeping until descent."
Cons: "Qantas, being an Australian airline, I am clueless as to why, in the airline lounge: Australian Sauvignon Blancs are not available (NZ phewee!) Bundaberg Rum (Ozzie icon) is not available. For a major hub, it is also not clear why a separate business lounge doesn't operate."
Pros: "Crew were outstanding. Great service, attention to detail and simply better than I have experienced in the past 10+ years travelling Business. Well done!"
Cons: "Entertainment system on our section of the Qantas A330-200 had failed and was not operational for the entire trip. This meant no movies, no music, no safety video or announcements and no flight map for the entire journey of almost 8 hours. Crew were not very responsive to this and it seemed like a low priority vs everything else they were doing. After almost 2 hours and complaingpts from a number of the 24 passengers impacted, they did a "soft and hard reset" of the system which did nothing. Initially crew suggested they had an alternative (Tablets) but subsequently denied this. I felt they had already handed these out and did not hav enough. Having been the very first person to raise this issue (10 mins before the flight was to leave), I felt I should have been offered one, but clearly they did not do so. Altogether pretty disgusted with crew attitude and responsiveness. We also felt the food was of very poor quality too - it was too salty and what should have been crisp was soggy. We will NEVER fly Qantas again (even a code share)."
Pros: "Service always great. Smooth lift off and landing. Just feels so safe. I trust Qantas 100%."
Pros: "On time dep and arr."
Cons: "Nothing specific."
Pros: "They serve drinks and snacks, which is over two nights these days the entertainment was good, and the seating was average."
Cons: "We have a layover in Brisbane. It would've been nice to have a direct flight from Cairns to Auckland"
Cons: "There was a known 3+ hr delay in Auckland for the second part of the connection through to Sydney, that wasn't advised during the flight. It caused quite a lot of difficulty for the Qantas Lounge Staff who were asked questions and unable to assist as it was operated by LATAM (LAN)"
Pros: "Faster service.. More attention to customers."
Cons: "Very bad service, entertainment and terrible food.. My food even had plastic in it.. Which I reported to the crew.. Please improve your standards."
Cons: "Crew are now full of attitude for some reason almost cold and unfriendly. Also the seats are very firm and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Luckily the flight was only 3 hours"
Cons: "Most uncomfortable seat (smallest, least leg room would not recline, no padding) that I can remember. Baby not just crying but screening in the seat behind me and crew did nothing."
Cons: "Minimal food and drink service."
Pros: "Getting there in one piece."
Cons: "Very small selection of movies and shows. Breakfast meal horrible. Heartburn within half hour."
Cons: "Lost a piece of our luggage--but very diligent about finding it and getting it to us the next day."
Cons: "1. Qantas was not interested in the fact that we were seniors and and that we were distress from our flight from USA. KAYAK SEND THESE COMMENTS ON TO QANTAS My phone no here in New Zealand is 0223446325 I can be contacted on this no. for more comment."
Pros: "Staff very friendly"
Pros: "When checking in, the lady at the counter gave us great instruction on how to board and what to expect in customs when we landed in New Zealand."
British Airways desk was not structured enough in Nice terminal 1. No sign before the registerer indicating that the Locator Form must be completed before reaching the desk. The previous day I couldn't complete it as the British Airways website didn't allow me to registerer online an attribute a seat number. I have waited 2 hours to register and was denied as the Locator Form was not done and assumed that I could complete it at the desk. The officer closed the register in front of me not even giving any assistance. I had to argue to have my flight reschedule for the following day and have my boarding pass edited with the seat number to complete the Locator Form very easily that should have been done by the officer in the first place....
Cons: "Seats are very tight and are short on comfort. The "occupied" toilet signs not working causing queues. On meals, forget the things that are impossible to to sustain in a fresh/tasty state, like melon, Tomatoes fried, certain types of sandwich where the bread absorbs any liquid/juice, overuse of rolls. The meals are tested under almost clinical conditions, who ever travels Economy and tastes the food in situ. Put more of the edible foood in. People prefer a single course meal as against a 3 course with dead ends on each side of the main."
Cons: "Seats are terrible. Crew didn't ask if I wanted to drink anything with the meal. Seemed like a budget flight."
Cons: "Booked business to get some needed sleep on the red eye as I'm straight into work today. Babies crying disturbed sleep and bags delayed to boot. Unimpressed."
Pros: "Gate was super close to the lounge."
Cons: "The security check at the gate requires one to leave the comfort of the lounge early incase of queues and then wait in an over crowded lounge with the other passengers (so the fact you are business/first or have one world status does little to ease the burden of boarding. The lounge also did not offer red eye passengers a meal and the on board meal service is slow (so if you are hungry it eats into precious sleeping time). The breakfast wakeup was also disappointing. My meal of choice was not available and the whole process was rushed like a fast food restaurant. Overall I am disappointed by the club world offering on this route and would not pay for it again unless intended to get on and just sleep for the entire journey."
Pros: "The crew was great and seating an entertainment options were wonderful."
Cons: "Food. Other airlines in Asia have a far better selection of meals."
Cons: "Entertainment didn’t work, big delay broken seat"
Pros: "Crew members were all very nice"
Cons: "Long delays"
Cons: "Only one round of drinks served?"
Pros: "Very comfy leather seats like business class"
Cons: "No free food, snacks"
Pros: "The crew were polite and very helpful. The service was also good."
Cons: "The leg room in Economy is awful and my seat was very uncomfortable 44C I have long legs and when seats are reclined they encroach on the persons comfort behind. On such a long Haul flight from Perthto Sydney and then onto Singapore and London. Comfort should be a whole lot better. Boarding needs im"
Cons: "This airline flew me from Manchester to London. At the worst time."
Cons: "Male crew who served me on this flight was rude as he threw me the disembarkment cards in a hurry but treated the Caucasian passengers nicely. How snobbish! My family and I will never recommend British Airways to our friends"
Pros: "The in flight services met my expectations."
Cons: "We were informed at the Nairobi check in that our tickets had been suspended because of possible risk of fraud. Attempts to resolve this promptly were not successful. For a first time traveler to the UK, this created unnecessary anxiety and gave us the feeling that the agency appointed to check us in are not supportive. We were eventually sorted but this is not nice at all given the fact that payments went through and tickets were issued and no one informed us of any issues until we got to the airport. Some feedback would be appreciated."
Pros: "Sydney arrival amazing swift immigration and customs staff polite another step forward Australia"
Cons: "The BREAKFAST wow CHILLED egg and bacon sandwich it may have been delicious in 1956 on an old Viscount but really substandard is an understatement LATE too tight to speed up ie spend more on fuel which increases the stress for me as now we are really close to missing the next leg but praise be - arrival was amazing once we got off the plane see above"
Pros: "I appreciated regular fluids; water and juices being brought around as this was quite a long haul-13hrs. Staff were good, although I would say less"
Cons: "The food was still ho-hum, ordinary. I would have thought exiting Singapore food could have been very tasty, some spice etc."
Pros: "See above, ditto."
Pros: "service was good, food was good"
Cons: "seats were too cramped for such a long flight and I didn't have the resources to upgrade to the next level (not first class, "World Traveler Plus" I think). The seats were also uncomfortable / not padded enough - my tailbone and lower back were very unhappy by the end of the flight"
Pros: "The flight crew were excellent"
Cons: "The seat didn’t recline. So when the passenger in front of me pushed her chair down, i had little to no space to put my food Boarding was not properly managed. The gate agebts did npt ask to check travel documents before boarding therefore delaying the flow of boarding traffic"
Pros: "The wheelchair services at both Rome and Heathrow were superb. The lady who checked us in in Rome was extremely helpful."
Cons: "Food in business class could be better. One toilett in business class was unusable. At leadt 1 in economy cladd was also unusable."
Pros: "It was a comfortable flight and plane."
Cons: "It was a tad cold but most planes are."
Cons: "Crew didn’t seem interested in picking up trash, especially Amy trash that was not related to mean or beverage service."
Pros: "Comfy, but small seats. Good food, nice crew"
Cons: "Small, old, buggy entertainment screen. Seats very narrow"
Pros: "very pleasant attendants. good amount of snacks and drinks. good entertainment options"
Cons: "a bit crammed"
Pros: "Have providee upstairs seat unfortunately need pay for it. Ice cream so delicious."
Cons: "Food. Uncomfortable seat for 11+hours flight."
Pros: "Good size seats"
Cons: "The crew were rude and dismissive"
Pros: "Especially the flight attendants took very good care of my infant. I'm very much impressed with their service."
Pros: "Wine fantastic, crew fantastic, comfortable seats in biz on A380. Food selection diabolical"
Cons: "Food was awgul"
Pros: "The service was very good."
Cons: "The aircraft was very old. The entertainment system was not work, no WiFi and no power outlet. overall it was hard."
Cons: "Luggage did not follow me. Still without."
Cons: "Poor legroom with large entertainment boxes taking up valuable space under the seat. Armrests do not lift all the way up - only go 45 degrees which is useless if sitting next to your partner and want some more room!"
Pros: "Can never underestimate safety and realiability of BA. Flight was smooth and I have no complaints"
Cons: "Food sucks. Stay with the Beef & potatoes. The Rice and chicken was terrible!!"
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "No snacks on a two hours flight? Have to pay extra???"
Pros: "Flight was on time and boarded well"
Cons: "This was a codeshare with Iberia and the seats were incredibly close with barely room to fit a small person, much less the 6’+ person who was next to me and had to put his legs over onto my side. Had a hard time getting my bag down between the seats to put under the seat in front of me. And everything was a cost, even water. Note to self, carry water or a drink on the plane if you think you will want one."
Pros: "I like the friendliness of the crew. They were always pleasant and accommodating. The hot meals were good."
Cons: "I didn't like the cramped spaces, especially when the person in front of me would put their seat back. It was hard to get in and out if you needed to use the restrooms and to eat with your food on the tray table ."
Pros: "Very good food"
Cons: "Not able to walk about the plane becuase of configuration"
Pros: "Great Service"
Cons: "Check in"
Pros: "It was my second flight with BA that day. After first one I said never again, but I didn't have a choice and got on the flight from London to NYC. Everything was great. Food was very good, but my highlight was the crew!!! Super professional, super nice and It's them who will make me fly with BA again"
Cons: "I can't think about one thing ."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Check in staff, Lounge + lounge staff and Cabin crew were on par with expectations (very good). Disembarking the plane at Heathrow was organised, immigration process (I used the e-gates) was very quick and bags arrived promptly."
Cons: "Many ground staff on hand - but felt overall lack of coordination specifically after security check at the gate, with yet another boarding card check which seemed a bit pointless as boarding cards were checked before gate security as well? Eventually boarding the plane - one lady ended up in the wrong line for upper deck seating (which shows that the numerous boarding card checks they failed to give proper guidance on what line to join)."
Pros: "I like that they managed to squeeze the seats in an A380 jumbo jets to make it feel like the space of a domestic carrier plane."
Cons: "Seat is small, no food menu on a 12-hour long haul flight from SIN to London. Only 1 available meal type: bland tasting "sea bass" soaked in tomato sauce. The air crew spent most of their time sitting in the back - zero effort in service - not once did they make rounds with cups of water/juice. In between meals, I request for some snacks and they said they don't carry any snacks at all - onboard a 12-hour long flight. I asked to BUY some Malteser chocolate and pringles, and the air crew exclaim "ohhhh but it's on the upper deck, I would have to climb up to get some." Here how about some bread rolls and butter. They offered me stale bread from the previous meal. I am their One World Partners SAPPHIRE Member. I shudder to think how they would treat their standard economy class passengers."
Pros: "Flight arrived early"
Cons: "Movie selection not that great"
Cons: "Two big devaluations to oneworld emeralds: 1) boarding is totally unregulated: they call oneworld emeralds first but everyone just comes stampeding through and they don't check, 2) no free beverages in economy - even for Oneworld emeralds - the highest tier - despite just having had champagne in the first class lounge for being emerald. How does this make sense?"
Pros: "The welcome drinks and hot towels (premium economy) are good. As is the drinks trolley before meals. The seats are just OK"
Cons: "Major gripe is seat allocation we had several issues but the worst was being issued with a boarding pass and seats from London to Sydney only to have them changed to inferior seats at Singapore with the ultimatum "sit in the new seats or get off the plane". Excellent for customer relations, we won't be traveling BA again"
Pros: "It was a short trip and the crew was good about making it as quick as possible (for boarding, debriefing, etc)."
Cons: "It was a short trip but they didn't have any sort of drink service. No entertainment either but that's expected for an hour long flight."
Pros: "Clean only immediately after boarding."
Cons: "1) Toilets too small 2) Toilets after first use by passengers, was not cleansed and toilet supplies like seat covers, etc not replenished 3) Not even enough toilets around."
Pros: "I worked for BA for 20 years. I was glad to book them. Ba Turned out to be AA Sat scrunched up between to big people. while in the back there were. 2 people sleeping across 4 seats. outrageous"
Cons: "No seats were allocated when i checked in for return flight. Flight overbooked. No time to change currency or stop for a tea as I had to wait and see if i was going to get a seat I was 3 and 1/2 hours before the flight."
Cons: "Changan T1 is awful. BA god poor. Otherwise fight to time and uneventful. Passenger cabin in 777s feels squashed. Toilets barely cope."
Cons: "Offer larger seats like United Airlines. For a few dollars you can upgrade economy to economy plus which offere 6 inches more leg room."
Pros: "That they found us a new flight"
Cons: "They cancelled our flight"
Pros: "We got to queenstown a little bit sooner"
Cons: "They have crazy expensive fees for luggage if over weight..I will not choose them again"
Pros: "The crew were amazing."
Cons: "The cost to check baggage was very high and hard to complete ahead of time."
Pros: "Was a smaller aircraft and a spacious flight"
Cons: "No complimentary food or snack or drinks!!"
Pros: "the pilot greeted and said goodbye to everyone"
Cons: "they don't offer refreshments to everyone, you have to ask for them"
Pros: "Neat and clean planes , comfortable & on time"
Cons: "Very cold inside the cabin , they make it so , why I don’t understand"
Cons: "They were delayed and also flight crew was rude and not polite. Also, I think it’s very sneaky and misleading how they advertise these flights as if they’re cheap when they don’t include any baggge fees at all and they charge you crazy prices at the airport for bags."
Pros: "They charged us almost $400 at the airport for two bags under 20kg. Absolutely ridiculous. They were doing math on a calculator and paper. So unprofessional and cost almost as much as one of our tickets"
Cons: "It was horrible and a total hoax of an airline"
Pros: "Out Jetstar flight from Cairns arrived late and we had unacceptable assistance to make our connecting flight to Queenstown. Missed our flight. Rebooked ourselves for tomorrow. Cost us $1000."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "The new bigger aircraft was something good."
Cons: "Very unfriendly staff at the airport. Don't even consider customers concern and respond saying this is budget airlines so nothing can be done. Secondly when I made the booking I not able to include luggage for some reason and when I went back to add luggage I was charged a crazy fee of $61 for 15kg which no other airline charges that way. Though jetstar is categorised as budget airline yet the price wasn't that different from normal airline and yet passengers loose all benefits. Even small requests like a change of seat was not entertained. When we purchase a certain luggage if at all we go excess by even 1kg we get overages but when we travel with less than the purchased luggage do we ask for any refund. I guess the true value of customer satisfaction has being lost and no one really cares. It not always due to price factors people choose budget airline but at times it because we fail to get seats on other flights."
Pros: "No redeeming factors with awful customer service. I missed my connecting flight due to another flight being late. As a result, I called them to notify them I would not be able to make the flight and asked to switch flights. After explaining the situation, they refused to waive the flight change fee and even charged additional fees even though I had no control of the situation. They took advantage of the situation I was forced into and have no ethics. Absolute garbage."
Cons: "See above. A terrible airline who treats paying customers with disrespect and takes advantage of the situation. I will never fly with this airline again."
Pros: "Charge for an extra 2 kgs = AUD50. Pretty average customer service if not slightly shoddy. Reminds me to avoid budget airlines. Cabin crew officious"
Pros: "Nice and smooth flight."
Cons: "I wished the seats were bigger a bit"
Pros: "Smooth boarding process and friendly crew"
Cons: "Buy luggage online! When we bought our tickets, the price per bag online was $15-25 pending the weight and size of the bags for checked luggage. Most airlines give you one checked bag for free, but whatever. $50 for two bags is not a huge deal. What I didn't know, and they didn't specify, is that was the online only price. When I got to the airport, they quoted me $225 for 2 bags! 225!! Both bags were around 40lbs each. Then they told us that if each bag weighed 6lbs less, the price would be $120. Let's just say our carryons ended up getting packed to the brim... And they still charged us $120. Ridiculous."
Pros: "Check in worked well"
Cons: "Significant delay because an intoxicated passenger was taken off flight, and her bag had to be found. Why was she allowed to check the bag in if she wasbthatvdrunk! No immigration slips for Australia available on plane. This meant another delay to complete when on ground."
Pros: "Smooth quick flight!"
Cons: "Wish we had known you don't even get a free cup of soda, water, or coffee.. But a short flight so was ok... No frills, cramped, but ok for a short trip! (husband is 6.1 feet and couldn't put knees together in front of him)"
Pros: "It was all on time. A good flight."
Pros: "Boarding was fast and easy."
Cons: "Delayed for 2 hours."
Pros: "To be fair, my flight was only about three hours so no food was served. It was a small, older plane. No entertainment available. Flight was delayed by 40 minutes. Didn't pay for checked bags"
Cons: "Boarding process was like cattle herding. No organization at all. I did appreciate the flight attendants efforts to seat everyone quickly so we could take off."
Cons: "Baggage fees, but that is to be expected now"
Pros: "Nothing from special services and checkin"
Cons: "We had 8 flights booked and requested 2 wheel chairs and 1 checked bag for each passenger for each flight. We had no problem with other airlines. We were told by the Jetstar employee on the flight from from Auckland that there was no checked baggsge requested Not likely from our end because we had 8 flights in a 3 week period. We had our bags weighed at special services and was told we were limited to 15 kg for a checked bag. One bag supposedly weighed on that scale 17.6 kg but the same bag showed it weighed 13.9 kg when we checked it in. We were forced to pay $70 per bag for a total of $140. We need a refundnd immediately. Funny, on the return trip to Auckland our tickets showed 1 checked bag per passenger and we'were limited to 20 kg per bag on Jetstar. How can an airline operate this way. Your survey is ridiculous because you ask for ratings on nonapplicable items. ."
Pros: "The took me from Singapore to Melbourne and that's the only thing I am happy with"
Cons: "Very rude and not friendly staff My carry-on weighted 9.5 kilos and they forced me to check in my carry on. The cost was 160 SGD which is insane. They said it's airline's policy and my response was that it's a stupid policy The entertainment service sucks. You have to pay for everything No food /snack provided during the flight. Oh sorry they were willing to sell you a small snack for 20$. I found that this airline just tries to gauge people. Pro ide minimal information during ticket purchase and the surprise you at the gate and during the flight. Not happy at all...Never will fly with jetstar again."
Cons: "Just because we bought the luggage at the airport instead of online they charged us MORE THAN FOUR TIMES THE PRICE for our luggage. It ended up being more than the cost of two return flights combined!!!! Avoid Jetstar like the plague that they are."
Pros: "Not but that stood out that was good. The crew es nice."
Cons: "The seats are quite uncomfortable and everything including water is at an additional cost. The baggage is extra unless you are just taking the clothes on you back."
Pros: "The price, service, punctuality and the excellent service of all personal involved. Excellent service"
Cons: "A little de organized the boarding process but I have to say caused by passengers behavior, in addition some of the passengers didn't follow the luggage rule and nothing happened. I would like to suggest some information during the fligh. Where were be and what could we be seeing during our flight."
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Great service by responsive flight attendants! Friendly and efficient. Newer Jet that was spacious."
Cons: "The entertainment package was not turned on and took a half hour to get it going during taxiing and take off routine. Once we got the attention of attendant then it was turned on. Selection of movies was good, but not great. Food selection was poor for westerners and minimal for vegetarians or vegans..."
Pros: "Baggage fees are extremely high, about the price of an additional ticket. Kayak didn't do a great job at explaining how to secure multiple baggage pieces in advance. Kayak provided no information on meal/drink advance order/purchase options. This was my fort time flying this airline and I didn't know what to expect. We experienced a mechanical issue feat but the pilot was great at providing updates. We were later delayed due to another aircrafts gas spill on the tarmac. Again, great communication from the flight deck. We were able to make up the time. Baggage fees are extremely high, about the price of an additional ticket.

Cons: "I was very upset to have to pay over 200 for checked luggage. Kayak never gave me the option to add a bag when I booked this trip. That would've allowed me to save money. I was very upset"
Pros: "Pilot made correct decision to abort approach."
Cons: "No plan to get passengers from Christchurch to Queenstown except bus or rent car, 7 hour drive in middle of the night. Never ride on Jetstar, take a car it's faster."
Cons: "Worst flight ever, no leg room, no free glass of water even, and got raped on luggage charges, won't fly with them again."
Cons: "They look like they are offering a cheap price, but then charge you $160 NZ per bag. Only 7k allowed per carry on & they give no leeway. Don't even get complementary coffee or tea. No leg room seats are so crammed together. Take another airline you will save in the long run."
Cons: "Got charged 160 for a checked bag because I did not pre pay ahead of time online. What a scam! Horrible experience. Was held hostage at the airport. Shame on you Quantas."
Pros: "Nothing. JetStar used unethical business practices to force us to pay $160 dollars for our baggage. Usually baggage costs $13. They clearly have pulled this extortion trick on customers many times before. We were left to choose between abandoning all of our clothing and souvenirs and other possessions, or paying them an absurdly high fee. So we didn't really have much choice. F JetStar. I'll never fly with them again. If you're smart you won't either."
Pros: "Hidden fees, terrible online mobile platform, crazy pricing (they told me to book baggage early so it's cheaper--my friends booked theirs the night after I did and paid less than half of what I did), bizarre processss, and a delay resulting from some sort of snack issue. Seats were uncomfortable as well. Probably the most stressful flying experience I have ever had."
Cons: "Had to pay a surcharge for bags that was not clear at the time of booking, was supposed to be "per bag" but the airline did us a favor and only charged us for one bag. While that seems nice, it's clear it's a bogus charge if rules don't need to be followed. One flight the baggage fee was $50, another was $160 - with these costs included they are actually more expensive than other airlines. Took an international flight and all food and drinks on the flight had to be purchased, pretty ridiculous that the airline does not include water over a three hour travel time."
Cons: "Prior to my departure date, I tried to buy additional luggage allowance online. I received several website errors that prevented me from doing so before heading to the airport for my flight. Upon telling the service desk about my issue, I encountered poor customer service from the service desk. Additionally, once onboard the aircraft, it was evident it had not been cleaned prior to my scheduled flight. My seat was filled with snack crumbs and rubbish."
Cons: "we landed in christchurch instead and I had to drive 7 hours to queenstown overnight to make it for the next day. it was awful. no compensation."
Pros: "Horrible service, rude staff, even when the plane was rerouted because of a gps issue, the staff was horrendous. Would never fly this airline again."
Cons: "Flight 2 hours delayed, which was as long as the flight duration (2 hour flight from Auckland to Queenstown). Charged us $70 per bag at check-in...we were told that because we didn't pre-coordinate our bags online we were being charged extra. Kayak made no mention of this policy when purchasing tickets or in the itinerary provided. The airline worker at the counter said mentioned "yeah this happens to foreigners all the time"...which makes it pretty blatantly a targeting scheme on foreigners who have no choice but to pay the inflated bag fees."
Cons: "Small baggage allowance and had to pay for everything! VERY SMALL seats and NO leg room."
Pros: "Never purchased these two items. Can't rate. But you score does not allow to indicate neutral."
Cons: "There were lots of hidden fees which made this flight more expensive than a full service airline"
Pros: "Flight was delayed because of not enough crew"
Pros: "The seats were okay and there was a few free audio options to help the time pass."
Cons: "For the price of the flight, I knew this would be a no frills experience. However, with it being over7hours, I expected at least a snack to be provided. There was nothing available for free except coffee and tea (not even a cup of water). I think they could at least include a drink per customer especially since we weren't able to take our drinks through security right at the gate."
Cons: "Extremely uncomfortable seats. Especially the head rests."
Pros: "stunning scenery of the southern alps... which had nothing to do with jetstar."
Cons: "where to begin... 1) $455 in baggage charges. yes, you read that right. 2 tickets cost $150. bags cost $450. absurd. enough said. we were connecting from an international flight, 2 adults and a toddler. it's not like we had an obscene amount of luggage. 2) so i tried to buy an extra seat (we were traveling with our 23-month old son)... buying an extra ticket and baggage allowance with it would have cost $100 less than the baggage charge with 2 tickets. But they would not allow this. 3) they would, however, block the seat next to us for free, so it would remain empty for my son. So we were not allowed to buy it, but they would keep it free for us. 4) we get on the plane, and the seat next to us is not blocked... someone else sits in it. if the plane is full, that makes perfect sense... but the plane wasn't full.. there were 20 empty seats. 5) so my son is unhappy because he wants his own seat, we're crammed into a full row... and there's a completely empty row behind us. So I ask the flight attendant if we can move. She says no, not until after take-off... first person to get there wins. Really? So, thank you but no thank you to jet star. at every opportunity they might have had to make our trip easier... they failed. miserably."
Cons: "Terrible exchange rate and high transaction costs for food puchases made on plane."
Cons: "The carry-on baggage limits are small (one bag maximum as opposed to most airlines that allow one bag and a personal item). The fee for checking a bag once at the airport is insane ($160 AUD). Will never fly Jetstar again. Easily worth the extra few dollars to fly Virgin or Air NZ."
