We were told that people with boarding passes of the original flight date had to wait for more recent passes. This led many to think that they would be kicked off the flight after waiting 24hrs. Once we did finally board we found that they had made a mistake and had to deboard a passenger resulting in an extra hour delay"

Pros: "Food was delicious!"

Pros: "Comfort Great book the cook meal choices Restful Attentive service"
Cons: "What’s there not to like about SQ"

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: "The best long leg flight I've been on. I managed to get a whole row to myself and that made the 12hr flight so much better. The crew was very professional, kind, attentive, and it was grand."

Pros: "Food & condition"
Cons: "Crew were unfriendly and rude"

Pros: "Staff on board were lovely."
Cons: "I asked to be placed in a seat as close to the front as possible as I suffer from motion sickness in the back of the plane. I was placed in the back row all the way to my destination and all the way home. I vomited 8 times and felt very sick. I did notice that there were many seats available in the front of the plane but they are never given out as women with babies and children always get them and then single travellers like myself are made sit in the back. I travel a lot, I usually fly Qantas and they are very good at providing seats closer to the front. I will be reluctant to fly Singapore Airlines again due to the fact that they were not accommodating at all."

Pros: "Aircraft was OK."
Cons: "Cabin crew service can definitely be better. Should offer more snacks for long flights."

Pros: "Seating space was very good. Meals terrific"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled during peak season with little notice time Lack of service Lack of compensation"

Pros: "The service is top notch. The food served is not matched by any other airlines I have traveled with. The flight attendants are always very very professional. I try to make sure to get Singapore Airlines when I travel to Asia."

Cons: "The TRICK of so-called 'auction' to buy an economy plus Seat . One may end up with a middle seat . Felt personally ' cheated' . Will not do this again"

Pros: "It's good that they have vegeterian options"
Cons: "Indian food was stale"

Pros: "Service, food and staff were great."
Cons: "Aircraft was dated and in desperate need of a refurb"

Pros: "I have always enjoyed flying on Singapore Airlines. There were no delays on my connecting flight coming out of Tokyo to Los Angeles. The huge plane was like flying in a small "transportable town.""
Cons: "I had a long connection wait in Tokyo, but that was not too bad since I got a great price on the round trip ticket - less than $700!"

Pros: "SGN-SIN is normally less than two hours. Business class very comfortable. I did not use the entertainment system -- it had trouble starting, by the way. Crew very attentive to passengers' needs."
Cons: "The aircraft had landed on time. Why does it take so long to start boarding? Of course the delay in take-off snowballed, more delays were added circling the airport of SIN."

Pros: "New aircraft Airbus 350-900 - has lot of leg space even in economy class. Food was just OK, nothing special and far from what SQ used to serve to the passengers. I was very disappointed finding out that travel pack consists only toothbrush and tootpaste with socks included. No more slippers, eyes cover and no more other necessities for intercontinental flights ! What a shame for SQ to save the money on such important things for passengers. Staff was over indulging, someone would say - fake kindness shown ..."
Cons: "I didn't like the crew... They have to learn from Air Serbia staff and Turkish Airlines what is genuine kindness and politeness. And the most expensive aircompany should not be stingy and provide to passengers on intercontinental flights just toothbrush and socks in traveler pack !!! What a shame for SQ !"

Pros: "The movies"
Cons: "I had no space in my seat for 10 hours The internet I purchased was a scam that last for 15 mins It took forever to deplane The food was horrible"

Pros: "The crew on air New Zealand was absolutely amazing. Amazing customer service, makes me always want to fly with air New Zealand."
Cons: "I had no heads up that New Zealand required an app downloaded and a government check before you can travel to New Zealand. Because of this, I had to download the app at the airport, and because it can take up to 72 hours for the NZ gov to approve your app, I almost missed my flight. Would have appreciated 72 hours notice of this new rule."

Cons: "They were not able to seat me next to my partner despite us having booked/selected our seats 6 months in advance. Additionally, the check in process took forever and we had a bunch of issues getting on the flight"

Cons: "The food quality needs improvement!"

Cons: "Lights could have gone fully off during a red eye international for sleeping."

Cons: "They have to provide better food."

Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "Foot rest and seat recline was broken. Food was also just okay."

Cons: "Air New Zealand needs to get onto the TSA Precheck program and the agent at check-in (in the biz line) started scolding me for not meeting the economy baggage allowance (only 1 small 7kg carry on), but everything else was perfect. Best biz class flight I’ve ever had, mostly because of the cabin crew"

Pros: "Checking in, bag drop, and boarding were all super fast and easy. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "Seat was comfortable (exit row) for a commuter jet."

Pros: "Everything else."
Cons: "The departure was 20 minutes late (not too much), which delayed the arrival in NZ by the same amount."

Pros: "Air NZ is fantastic start to finish and airport security doesn’t make you take off your shoes in the airport. Flight was on time start to finish."

Pros: "The seat next to me was empty so it was much more comfortable than the flight out. Movies were great"
Cons: "The food, economy has no room."

Pros: "Very friendly and helpful staff"

Pros: "The gate agents and the gate supervisors were rude and condescending My reservation was changed mid air and even though I made it to the gate 18 to Houston on time and boarding was still in progress I was not allowed to board. I was informed a plane was not a bus that I could hop on anytime I liked. When I protested that I had a confirmed reservation I was calmly told. “We canceled it because we didn’t expect you to make it.”"
Cons: "I missed my Thanksgiving Holiday because some powers that be decided I would not be able to make a connection So instead of waiting to we if I missed it and rebook then, like a normal airline, they preemptively cancelled and denied boarding."

Pros: "Everything. Best service and great seat room."

Pros: "Nice flight"
Cons: "That they left my luggage, 1 piece off entire flight! A brightly patterned piece! In 50 years of flying!!! Has NEVER happened! Had to spend the 1st several hours running around looking for underwear and jacket! Not a great start to vacation! And $100 nzd doesn't buy much!"

Pros: "Entertainment was great, food was great, and the overall flight experience was better than the first time travelling this airline. Airhosts/esses we’re very polite as well. Would try it again soon!"
Cons: "Airhosts/esses took a long time to pick up our trays after our meal."

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: "Very friendly ticket counter staff and flight crew."
Cons: "Booked flight through Kayak on Virgin Australia, but found out it was a codeshare on Air New Zealand. No where during booking did it show we would be charged for 1 checked bag a piece. Got to the airport and Air New Zealand was going to charge 134 AUD for each checked bag. Fortunately, they recommended going to the Virgin Australia counter to see if they could add a checked bag to our ticket. The nice people at Virgin used an online code to give us a discount so we only paid 25 AUD a bag. Thanks a lot for the heads up Kayak. We will book direct next time to avoid surprises. Also, almost all movies on Air New Zealand were an extra charge, and the only drinks offered for free on a 3 hour flight were coffee, tea, and water - no soft drinks."

Pros: "Our hostess was extremely friendly, accomdating and engaging. Air Nz need more staff like her! We had taken a Honolulu flight to Auckland flight the day before and were really disappointed with the service, lack of friendliness and the limited availability of food were not what I have come to expect on Air NZ, an airline we have been so proud of in the past to fly."
Cons: "There was no doubt the staff made this journey great!"

Cons: "Virgin Australia operated by air New Zealand. Couldnt check in online and had to be chat he been."

Pros: "It was operated by air New Zealand so the service was top notch once I was able to resolve all other issues boarding."
Cons: "We had a flight bought on virgin Australia and operated with air New Zealand. The air New Zealand part was all great plane boarding etc, the horrible part is that we bought baggage allowances with virgin and they never transferred the information to air New Zealand. So there I am from the USA in a foreign country boarding a flight being asked to pay 500 nz dollars for a few kilos when I had already paid for it. Having to produce emails and payment information on something I had done months in advance. Overall I won’t recommend virgin next time I’d book directly with air New Zealand"

Pros: "Flying over the country of NZ."
Cons: "Crying kids."

Pros: "There was so much I loved, but what really stood out was the mood was set from the beginning....music, lighting, and the welcome message on the screens that were personalized for passengers. Great food and the friendliest airline crew ever. I also loved the safety video....it wasn't boring even though I knew to he information."
Cons: "I was in the middle of the middle row, but even then....I couldn't complain.....most comfortable flight I've ever been on!"

Pros: "Food, entertainment especially on long trips"
Cons: "Not something that the airline could do, but I didn’t like that the person next to me was hogging 3 seats (both middle seats) when it’s etiquette to to the one just next to you. Like I said, something the airline can’t control."

Pros: "Everything was ok."
Cons: "The Auckland airport is the closest I have ever been to burning in hell."

Cons: "I double booked the flight on Nov 27 to Sydney from Queenstown through Kayak while I had another flight booked on the same date to Christchurch from Auckland for the same 2 people and Kayak did not warn me that I had already booked the flight on the 27th. It was my fault but I would appreciate if Kayak warned me. Otherwise all is good. Thanks"

Pros: "everything! Leg room, priority boarding even though we boarded close to last, snacks. That safe feeling :)"
Cons: "nothing!"

Pros: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "The fact that our booking through Kayak did not record we had booked luggage. We KNOW we had booked luggage. Air NZ wanted to charge us $160 each bag. Eventually BYOJet got us through to Virgin who allowed us to buy luggage for $25 per bag. Thank you Virgin for your wonderful assistance 1 1/2 hours before departure. Virgin's standard ticket has 23kg luggage included. What is the problem with a ticket bought online through agents such as BYOJet and Kayak?"

Pros: "Flew spaceseat home and loved it to pieces. Tired so fell asleep for main course. Remote gate boarding but that is LAX's airports fault. Crew are brilliant as always. Good to chat. Smooth flight home - yay!"

Cons: "Wasn't all that bad!"

Pros: "REally liked the plane, crew, and accommodations."
Cons: "Our flight from Rarotonga was 2.5 hours late, causing us to leave Rarotonga at 2:40 AM ! The flight and crew were wonderful, but we were exhausted as sleep time was cut short because of the lateness of the flight."

Pros: "When booking, we were unable to choose our seating hence we were not sitting together. At the airport we asked if there was a way they could put the three of us together. Air New Zealand was able to accommodate our request. It was a 12 hour flight. We were very grateful."

Cons: "Staff was not friendly or attentive."

Pros: "The crew were wonderful! Lots of leg room, quick and helpful boarding. Loved my first time on Air New Zealand."
Cons: "I should've asked for a vegetarian meal but I didn't think to. I will next time! I'd also love some more NZ movies...Whale rider, Hunt for the Wilderpeople, etc! That'd be great!"

Pros: "amazingly pleasant crew, great food, efficient service, very comfortable."
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "The vegetarian meals were delicious. Thanks."

Pros: "Slightly better seats & slightly more leg room than other airlines. Crew was pleasant and efficient despite 12+ hour flight with turbulence."
Cons: "Too close to "neighbors" ie seats too close together--it is hard to eat without poking or being poked by the person on either side...even when seats are in upright position."

Cons: "Cancellled"

Cons: "When checking in for my flights at the Kiosk I inadvertently skipped over the seat select options. Unfortunately once this is done you can't go back. I called Air NZ to see if I could get an ile seat but as I had already checked in they could not do anything to change the seat location."

Cons: "I try to find kayak number to tell you that I couldn’t fly because I didn’t have COVID-19 test But I couldn’t find the The phone number that’s why I’m still in Amsterdam"

Pros: "All the service."
Cons: "nothing."

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Scrambled eggs breakfast was more like a mousse and had no texture"

Cons: "Handling and boarding at Schiphol was pathetic"

Pros: "The airplane The food"
Cons: "The time"

Cons: "I didn’t like the airport in Dubai. Cleaners locked all the disabled toilets. I walked to 3 of them. Very difficult to use normal toilet and having to leave your baby & carry on outside when traveling alone!"

Cons: "I thought I had paid for window seats."

Pros: "Could not fault the staff one iota. Incredibly attentive to their customers, graceful and supportive. The supervisor get a special mention as he helped me with eating my meals with a sleeping toddler and even held her for me while I spent a penny. I have never felt more cared for by a group of complete strangers in my life! Thank you. You literally saved my sanity!"

Pros: "The staff was amazing, not perfect, but still very good. Even on the long leg from Seattle to Dubai after 14 hours they we're smiling, helpful and attentive."
Cons: "The only thing I could say was not up to par was the food on both flights. The long legs food got me sick, and yes I was the only one so could have just been me, and the second the "sandwich" it seems they were not even trying."

Pros: "A380 was superb. Really enjoyed being on-board of that aircraft"

Cons: "Our Emirates flight was delayed for 21 hours. They didn't have enough non-vegetarian meals, we were forced to eat vegetarian breakfast and lunch throughout our inbound flight."

Pros: "The airline still runs like a well-oiled machine. Everything is efficient and staff are courteous. Flights are on time and reliable. DXB airport is easy to navigate. New on-board headphones design is an improvement."
Cons: "Cost saving cuts are evident around every corner. No more night mask, flight socks and toothbrush. No more hot lemon towel upon boarding (only towards end of flight). Food tray is smaller and more compact than before, turns Dinner into a game of Tetris (although, not a fun 'game'). Flights aboard A380 are much more comfortable than in Boeing 777."

Pros: "A380 is great, roomy even for coach. Food is great as always."
Cons: "While most flight attendants are decent, a few are just not that great...making loud noises at the attendants compartments and chatting around while flyers are all sleeping, kick around garbages which makes loud noises too. Also the TV screen is a little hard to pull up at the front role."

Pros: "As always crew was great."
Cons: "Disembarking took to long waiting on business class to clear their area. Bottom seat cushions are to hard and flat had to put my cushion down to sit on."

Pros: "Comfort and space inside aircraft is excellent, very good entertaiment and movies"
Cons: "Some stewardesses were in a bad mood and responded badly to passengers"

Pros: "The stewards were really fantastic, and what started out as a delay because of air traffic control, wound up landing on time. Really smooth flight."

Pros: "The crew had such outstanding service!! Looking forward to fly Emirates again."

Pros: "Accommodating flight attendants. Easy transfer between flights."
Cons: "The length oh the flight, but Emirates can't help that. It was 14 to 15 hours."

Pros: "EXCELLENT QUICK SERVICE. CREW WERE FRIENDLY & ALWAYS SMILING. KEEP IT UP."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Dirty planes, horrible attitude of cabin crew and bad food. They also forgot to serve me my special meal and then in the end just gave me some junk since they didn't have the special dietary meal on board."

Pros: "Excellent service by cabin crew especially Wail"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The delays, the switching of airlines with no prior notification. The flight was originally scheduled for 4:05 pm with Emirates, yet was changes to quantas and left much later"

Pros: "Great food, entertainment options and personal space"
Cons: "Crew left something to be desired. Didnt check on anyone or "make the rounds", I had to get up and seek them out. Went almost 12 hours between meals and seemed annoyed when I asked for food"

Pros: "The crew went above and beyond the meet my needs. I requested the Cathay draft beer Betsy which wasn't loaded, unfortunately, but the crew managed to find one in economy."
Cons: "It was annoying the entertainment content on the A350 and 777-300ER were slightly different. I was watching a show but could not finish it."

Pros: "Crew amazing."
Cons: "Food variety should be increased."

Pros: "Seat worked as designed Got some sleep Crew was helpful"
Cons: "Better selection of movies; too much violence, foul language, sex and nudity - a better reflection of the food life."

Cons: "One of the lady flight attendant in the economy class seemed to be not in a good mood and was quite rude."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "everything"

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "The accommodation/attendance from the flight crews. They looked like they have just been deployed from training."

Pros: "Yup all gud"
Cons: "All gud"

Pros: "Food is delicious and fresh"
Cons: "The inflight Entertainemnt is lacking. Shows are too old and few."

Cons: "Food options listed on menu were not available. Breakfast was served so late that crew said not enough time to make/serve hot coffee or tea. During flight no crew ever came around to offer more water or liquid between meals. TV was in German with no instructions on how to change language to English. Bathrooms were not kept clean. Also, when boarding at the HK airport, after disabled and families, everyone was asked to board at the same time which resulted in one very long line of several hundred people."

Pros: "Nothing I like"
Cons: "The seats assigned are so at the back at the aircraft. Even both of us are members of the airline we haven’t received any flight notification. That’s really bad"

Pros: "Service was very good. Food was decent. Surprised CX served dinner early in the morning Pacific time right before arrival at SFO instead to breakfast."
Cons: "There was an extra layer of normal security check at the HKG gate 15. The male team leader, probably in '50's, with two bars on his shoulder was extremely rude to the passengers. I was at the front of Economy class when a female Asian passenger walked up in the Business class ilne. He naturally tendered to her first and let her and directing her to a lower security ranking staff t the other side of area. All fine and dandy. But seconds later, a Caucasian male walked u,p indicating that he was with that female Asian, the security guard got real mad, shouted at the Asian woman who by then was some 20 feet away that next time she needed to tell him he was with someone. When it was my turn to go into the secured area, there were to guards available standing side by side, a male and a female. He let me and pointed toward the two guards. I asked him which one, he didn't answer. I asked a second time, "Male or female", he still didn't answer, just pointed his finger toward the two guards. His attitude was totally unacceptable."

Pros: "Second time in less than two years and satisfied on both trips. Good work Cathay Pacific."

Pros: "Very efficient and courteous, a pleasure to fly with your airline."
Cons: "Don’t change anything!"

Cons: "Nice flight nice"

Pros: "A perfect landing/touchdown into Auckland. Great pilot"
Cons: "Passenger immediately behind said that they couldn't watch their movie properly when I wanted to recline my seat for sleeping position. Had to wait!!"

Cons: "The stopover in Hong Kong was longer than I would have liked."

Cons: "Original itinerary was not followed. Flight from manila to hongkong was late. We arrived hongkong and was informed that our flight has been rebooked even though we can see that the plane was still there and staffs are still at the gate. We were transferred to a layover flight from HongKong to Aussie then Aussie to Auckland instead of going straight. Seats was set far apart with no competitions at all. Sorry is not enough for this big hassle."

Pros: "All went to schedule and flight attendants very good"

Pros: "The flight was on time and the crew was very attentive. Loved Cathay Pacific’s signature non alcoholic drink”Ocean Breeze”."
Cons: "The food was really not at the level you would expect. There was only a pork and a fish option. The fish was fishy and the dessert was gelatin cake thing that did not appease my dessert craving."

Pros: "The crew was polite, caring and friendly towards passengers. I had a pleasant time during the long flight. The food options were good."
Cons: "Cup noodles were not really a good snack idea given the fact that we were sitting in a closed environment. The smell was too much for such a long flight..."

Cons: "Flight delay."

Pros: "You get what you paid for. We paid more for similar class than other airlines, and we spent less time waiting in checking line; generous legroom and shoulder room(Airbus350). Seat slides forward while reclines. It is a good thing that seat does not recline too much that it will annoy someone behine. Food was okay but you wouldn't get hungry."
Cons: "Need healthy food: less salt, whole wheat bread, more vegi."

Pros: "Great customer service. Very attentive"
Cons: "Lack of room"

Pros: "The crew is excellent. Travelling with baby and they take care of us attentively"
Cons: "Delayed 30min in the end."

Cons: "Hardly any Indian movies for 15 hours flight. Other flights have more options. Pl aying games was terrible without a handset. Seats are cramped. There was 2 fruits for an Indian vegetarian option and when we asked how come there is no desert they say that is the option which is comes with."

Cons: "Food seemed old and crew was too busy"

Pros: "Plane was clean"
Cons: "The crew was uninformed and unobservant to actual conditions in the cabin. They kept the air conditioning on and no one was available to address the situation. People started to take their winter coats out of the overhead bins and sit in their seats with coats on. They spent a significant amount of time repeatedly requesting that the window shades be moved up or down. Frankly, if I buy a window seat I should have the option to look out the window if I'm not disturbing my neighbors."

Pros: "What you'd expect from a Cathay flight. The abundant entertainment options was a pleasant surprise."
Cons: "There was quite a delay, which was a shame."

Pros: "- Crew friendly and helpful"
Cons: "- very uncomfortable flight - seated with someone who whined and complained the whole way - could not sleep as the person behind me snored loudly the whole night - Was sitting in the isle seat and kept getting hit in the arm every time the trolley went by"

Pros: "Very enjoyable flight. Plenty of legroom in the bulk seating. Service was very good and food was OK."
Cons: "Seats in economy are not that thick therefore not comfortable to sit for a long time."

Pros: "Being upgraded to premium economy was one of the best surprises ever in my life. Wide Seat and leg space, great food selection, baggages not misplaced, up to date email notification of flight status very much appreciated!!!"

Cons: "Upon arrival in Hong Kong, Cathay representatives automatically re-booked my connecting flight to Taipei assuming I would miss the connection. This was not the case. I was able to get to the connecting gate on time. Cathay representatives in Hong Kong were rude and unhelpful in re-issuing my boarding pass for my originally scheduled flight to Taipei."

Pros: "Service with hospitality impressed me.Prefer to travel in cathay pacific air lines in future travel plans."

Pros: "Staff Food"
Cons: "Delayed due to rain (stopped us boarding, held in skyway for 15 minutes, had to run to another gate) Poor communication on delay/flight info."

Pros: "I had two flight crew that went out of their way to exceed my expectations on my BKK to HKG flight. One was the onflight manager, Bingo, and the other was the flight attendant, Carol. They are a testament to Cathay Pacific, and they should be acknowledged for their exceptional customer service!"

Pros: "Excellent Entertainment Choices. Wonderful Staff/crew"

Cons: "We were all supoosed to sit together (there were 3 of us) but my sister got separated at the last minute and put on a center seat elsewhere with no explanation."

Pros: "What a difference after getting off BA! Staff wonderful, always happy to help and always a smile. PE seats on new A350 are great, although too much cheap, hard plastic on seat back. Very comfortable with great pitch. Food exceptional and beautifully presented. Dim sum for breakfast was sensational. Pier Business class lounge breathtaking, with several large rooms with different food options, served to you - the fresh made noodles a must - and a staffed, well stocked bar. Absolutely gorgeous space."
Cons: "Surprised (and first time on Cathay I've seen this) toilet was revolting towards end of flight. Movie selection disappointing, as not many new releases and not all that many others."

Cons: "Child in seat behind hitting screen in back of headrest (play a game on it) while I was trying to sleep in the middle of the night"

Pros: "The hard product of seats and plane was really nice. Flying the new A359, very comfortable. Lower cabin pressure felt really nice on the skin. Lie flat beds were a treat, and a massive entertainment system."
Cons: "The food was average. Had some chicken on pasta on the way over, chicken was dry and without sauce. My wife fainted on the flight and the flight attendant wasn't the most reassuring. Also her foot rest broke and they blamed her weight which was mean."

Pros: "Great flight (considering it was like 20 hours we were traveling) Don't understand why we had to throw out the liquids we purchased past the security check points (like next to the gate). Why sell them then?"

Cons: "Boarding gate far end of airport"

Pros: "Terrific first class and business club in Hong Kong. Great flight crew. Everything else also excellent. Keep up the excellent work."

Pros: "Food was incredible and the staff were so accommodating! Absolutely loved it!"

Pros: "Excellent, kind, professional crew and timely flight."

Pros: "Everything went very well with the very good service of Cathy Pacific."
Cons: "Maybe a map of document control areas."

Pros: "It was a long flight, but service was excellent."
Cons: "nothing to complain about"

Pros: "Food nice, much better than KLM. Typical great Asian service."
Cons: "No information as to why boarding was over 30 minutes late, even though last call was announced!"

Cons: "Pilots apparently forgot the seatbelt sign pretty much the entire flight. Flight attendants were trying to get people to stay seated until it became clear the light was never going off. Literally 1/2 the flight people were just wandering around and the attendants gave up. Seriously guys, on a 10+ hour flight, that's not cool."
