Pros: "The great service and comfortable flight"
Pros: "Comfortable flight"
Pros: "great service. my kids loved the special treatment!"
Pros: "The flight attendants are attentive and know how to anticipate your needs. I used to travel from New York to Korea then the Philippines, and I choose to fly Korean Air. In my opinion, their service crew improved a lot Including their food."
Pros: "Great customer service"
Cons: "It was hot and no airflow"
Pros: "We boarded quickly and efficiently. It was a 90 minute flight and they served a sandwich, fruit, salad and water plus juice or soda. Very friendly and efficient flight crew."
Cons: "I have no complaints."
Pros: "Ended up in the middle seat even though i booked the flight 7 months ago"
Cons: "bad seating. the Korean air website would not let me pick my own seat in advance"
Cons: "The website did not let me choose the seat when I tried to check-in. In addition, the flight attendant was not welcoming because she kept saying that you cannot have more food :("
Pros: "Very professional crew good service"
Cons: "Nothing really pilot couldn't understand him but does it really matter unless is an emergency"
Pros: "Very helpful crew. Good leg room"
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work, so I was moved to another seat."
Pros: "Nothing our tickets had to be cancelled"
Cons: "Our flight was scheduled with Korean air. We attempted to check in multiple times with issues on the Korean air website. we called and they told us not to worry. Finally, approximately 12 hours before departure we wwere able to check in Only to find out due to the expiration date of our passport we would not be an allowed to check in. We scrambled to get an emergency passport, however by the time it was received we had already missed our flight. Korean air is not willing to aknowledge this as a fault in their system and is instead suggesting this is a kayak issue for allowing us to purchase these flights. I would like the total flight cost refunded as this should never have been allowed to be purchased if Korean air knew at the time of purchase when checking in there would be an issue."
Pros: "Disclaimer: we flew business class. Regardless, our check-in was seamless, Incheon is a beautiful and easy airport, all the flight crew were responsive and pleasant. We flew China Eastern and dealt with Shanghai airport on our flight out and I would avoid doing that again at great cost!"
Pros: "Overnight flight to San Francisco, the crew is stellar. They are calm and friendly and speak English well. I liked the food options, I would recommend sticking with the American choices if you're not used to Korean food. The dinner was actually pretty good. Entertainment options are plenty, I watched 3 movies and a documentary. The flight maps and outside cameras are great, and it showed that the pilots were constantly trying to find smooth air while the first portion of the flight was bumpy. They found it and the rest of the flight was fairly smooth."
Cons: "Aside from the turbulence, which is no fault to the airline, the only other issue was a smelly bathroom in the back that spread out a few rows. I wasn't sitting back there but I would have liked a freshener if I was in those back rows."
Pros: "acomodations was awesome!!!"
Cons: "temperature was not consitent"
Pros: "The staff was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "There wasnt anything that i didnt like"
Pros: "For some reason the crew seemed more attentive and maybe fresher coming back from ICN than going to ICN"
Cons: "The only problem was the long layover"
Pros: "Friendly af"
Pros: "Seats were a bit roomier and attendants were friendly."
Cons: "I didn't like the meal."
Pros: "The cabin crew was very polite. Restrooms were kept clean by the cabin crew"
Pros: "I was recently on flight CI054 from Auckland to Taipei, with a short layover in Brisbane (my final destination was Incheon, South Korea. Due to fog in Brisbane, the flight was diverted to Gold Coast. After arriving in Gold Coast we had to take a bus to Brisbane. It's kind of a long story, but basically I will say it was handled well for the most part my China airlines. Certainly, fog was not there fault and they did everything they could to accommodate passengers, including putting us up in two very nice hotels."
Cons: "The one complaint I have is when disembarking the plane in Gold Coast, there was no China Airlines personnel to be found anywhere. Nobody on the plane knew what we were doing - who was supposed to get on the bus and who was supposed to stay. The Australian immigration authorities and Gold Coast airport staff took control, but again, China Airlines staff had completely disappeared. Nobody was there to tell us whether we should collect our luggage, how to get an appropriate visa to enter Australia, where to go to get on the bus (or even if we SHOULD get on the bus). I was really frustrated at the point, but other than that, I would say they handled it quite well"
Cons: "Seat was so narrow, my elbows were stuck to my torso the whole way"
Pros: "This is the first time I experienced courteous crew. They confirmed my meal plans and enquirer abt my meal."
Cons: "The choice on entertainment is limited. It did not impact me much but will like to have more options."
Pros: "First class on Korean long haul does not disappoint!"
Cons: "Nothing not to like"
Pros: "Punctual, decent leg room. Food is not typical dishes, creative for an airline and actually tasty."
Cons: "The web/mobile check in is convenient. Although morning flights have a long bag drop line. Many arrive before before the counter is open. Bag drop counter should open earlier. If people arrive 2hours early, then bag drop opens 3hrs earlier than the first flight of the day."
Cons: "Good customer service"
Pros: "upgrade the food quality"
Pros: "Flight attendants are awesome."
Cons: "The guy next to me was very drunk. He scared me a little bit."
Pros: "see above"
Cons: "Would love more Movie and TV options, especially light of the length of the trip"
Pros: "Friendly staff and good good choices. Clean and new plane."
Pros: "The staff members were really nice and it was an enjoyable flight."
Cons: "The food. The noodles were over cooked, but the rest of the meal was good."
Pros: "Friendly service and food pretty good. Great price for value."
Cons: "Seating was changed even though i prebooked."
Pros: "The boarding was efficient and the crew was nice, polite, and mostly spoke English, which is a huge benefit. The crew provided a pillow+blanket combination, headphones, a toothbrush, two meals, several snacks, and lots of drinks including wine. As for entertainment, the flight includes several movies, tv shows, music, and games for free. I would definitely recommend Korean Air to a friend, but I would recommend that friend to bring a custom neck pillow."
Cons: "Although the crew dimmed the lights during the flight, I could never get comfortable enough in my chair to sleep. The chairs do not support the human body, they only offer rollercoaster type padding. There is no neck support, and the pillow handed out by the crew is too big to be used as a back or neck support. Even lying back, the chairs are uncomfortable. The food could have had some warning labels in English on them. Since I'm lactose intolerant and unable to read Hangul, it's difficult for me to pick food I can eat without problems."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth. Seats weren't too bad. Decent selection of movies, but have had better. USB plug at every seat. Ordered vegetarian meal but didn't arrive."
Cons: "They didn't have my vegetarian meal that I ordered so was pretty hungry."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful and the food was very good, The flight was on time."
Cons: "All the advertisement books in the pouch were a pain. I could have put my reading materials in that space. The advertisements could be offered to passengers during the flight. Wouldn't probably need as many. Also, the cup holder should be up higher on the back of the seat. I kept bumping it with my knee and spilling it."
Pros: "I have flown with many airlines and Korean Air is by far the best airlines I have flown with. Great service, perfect locations."
Cons: "China Air was alright. Just didn't like the whole running around the airport trying to figure out what counter to go to. Also I am not a big fan of getting transported via bus from terminal to plane"
Pros: "Everything was good except the space for reclining."
Cons: "My seat needs to go back further so I can sleep. Maybe about 3 inches."
Cons: "Nothing GOOOOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Friendly crew members, great food, and lots of entertainment choices"
Pros: "The beautiful and friendly air syewardess."
Cons: "Not comfortable sitting on the cramped seat."
Pros: "Great service and entertainment"
Cons: "Food was no good"
Pros: "Really nothing about American airline from Korea to Dallas. I Realy thaught it's going to b actual Korean air line operated by American air line. It was a total surprise and bad experience knowing that it was American airline aircraft."
Pros: "The crew was excellent."
Cons: "The business seats at B777-300ER was very uncomfortable for a long distance trip with duration of 14,5 hours."
Cons: "Its sad to see that only the female flight attendants look after the restrooms, no male attendants were seen doing it on both flights. Disappointing in this day and age this still exists."
Pros: "the crew is fine. The seat was OK standard."
Cons: "Food was not good on my way back to L.A. Food was no flavor, pork cut up way too big, prefer having small piece of meat soaked up flavor sauce."
Pros: "Crew were amazing and great entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding could be better"
Cons: "Left 45 minutes late though we boarded on time. Pretty bad for a 50 minute in the middle of the morning."
Cons: "Flight was a little warm but was able to get it cooler via help from crew but got warmer again towards the end of flight. Overall good flight though"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very friendly, professional and helpful"
Pros: "The crew were excellent"
Cons: "Seats and leg room not as comfortable as older plane. The entertainment system was confusing to use ( again older model) hence not as user friendly."
Pros: "Ok boarding, plane was new, entertainment system was up to date"
Cons: "Premium economy service is even worse than economy as crew is never around and busy in economy. Seats are bigger but not really comfortable. Food is same as economy. Doesn't worth it to buy premium economy."
Pros: "I like all"
Cons: "Softer seats and more movies"
Pros: "I have tall family members and they had enough legroom even at the back of the plane. Service was excellent. Snacks and drinks were regular on offer even between meal. Very nice, professional staff even after 13 hours of flight. Just excellent. Thank you for this very pleasant experience. Will definitely fly Singapore Airlines again."
Cons: "There is room for improvement with the special meals. The non gluten brun was very hard. In general it would be nice if passengers could pre-order from a set selection of foods online what they would like on their tray. This would hopefully lower the amount of food that sadly goes to waste. Also it would be nice to have gluten free snacks on board. Flying with celiac disease is not easy."
Pros: "personel provided excellent service"
Cons: "food was ok. A faulty entertainment system did make our flight feel longer."
Pros: "excellent - comfy plane, great service, excellent stuff."
Pros: "Great service!"
Pros: "Great service and very very comfy"
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: "Espresso coffee, champagne, crew, headphones"
Cons: "Cabin little bit cold"
Pros: "Finally, I could go to my final destination as planned by transmitted to Korean Air flights."
Cons: "My first flight of JetBlue from Olandor to New York was delayed that leading to my connecting flights to my destination were missed. Now, my suitcases have been missed, too."
Cons: "With no food preferences specified, it takes a significantly longer time to get your meal as there are a lot of people who have special dietary requirements on certain routes."
Cons: "Outdated Cabin Fit Out"
Pros: "Staff was polite and accommodating"
Pros: "The cabin crew was awesome.. they are for sure the super stars of the company... I wish all of them all the very best for a very bright future"
Cons: "The service of the airlines is impeccable. But the ground staff near check in were not so. I hope they were a little considerate as I was travelling for a family emergency and had to take all my stuff back as I wasn’t sure what date I would return back. I was over weight but wish they had considered a lil as had to pay an other $300 extra.."
Pros: "The food is very good in economy. Large screen tv gor movies and games."
Cons: "all was good, nothing bad"
Pros: "SQ did a great job again. I plan to fly them in the future."
Cons: "My only criticism is that the flight attendants didn’t pass through the cabin with water during the 9 hour flight."
Pros: "Great crew, good food (best I've had on an airplane), plenty of drinks, and a good entertainment system."
Cons: "Nothing bad to say about this flight. Great airline."
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: "The people were excellent."
Cons: "I had planned to check an extra piece of luggage, gifts and purchases for church needs. They wanted to charge me $3,655(!!!) for that. Absurd. I had to leave the suitcase behind. I will probably fly on a different airline whenever I go to Russia now."
Pros: "Classy cabin staff"
Pros: "everything is perfect"
Cons: "the food on Silk Air can be better"
Pros: "Liked almost everything: newspapers, menu card, mini-toiletries bag, hot towel, food choice, ice cream, entertainment options, head sets provided (better quality than US airlines), lavatories kept clean and with less waiting time, number and friendliness of flight staff."
Cons: "What I did not like: Boarding was slower than expected. Large plane = longer boarding time."
Pros: "Crew was great. Food not bad for airline food . It was clean."
Pros: "Staff managed to change seating due to height. Very accommodating."
Cons: "Entertainment console dated. Sound very crackly. Video images not sharp."
Pros: "I traveled Premium Economy. It was well worth the extra cost over regular Economy. The food was great, the crew was great, the flight was very comfortable."
Pros: "Liked everything from service to comfort"
Pros: "Just a generic flight. Had nice movies but nothing special."
Cons: "I felt very cramped and though it's nothing with the airline I had 2 crying babies right near me during the flight."
Pros: "Food, movies, support, were all wonderful."
Pros: "Second bag was four foot bronze statue, no problem or extra cost"
Cons: "cramped seats freezing cold"
Pros: "The crew and inflight food and entertainment was good. The person on the transfer desk was very helpful."
Cons: "We were unable to use the website to check-in online, which meant we had to fly to Manchester to check-in. Which is very poor given modern technology. (We were able to check in on line for the flight from Houston)"
Pros: "The staff were great, very efficient."
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: "Flight on time"
Cons: "The in flight service was not as good as I remember the last few times I flew with Singapore. ."
Pros: "Food was exceptional"
Pros: "Arrival in Canberra was excellent."
Cons: "Horrendously uncomfortable business-class seat for a redeye flight."
Pros: "The food was great!"
Cons: "The announcements coming from the boarding crew were not clear or hardly under stable."
Pros: "Flight crew we're attentive and anticipated issues. The flight was smooth and the lavatories were clean and stocked. Love the hot towels at the beginning and end of the flight."
Cons: "Not much to be honest. I suppose if I could say anything it would the seats in economy are a bit cramped, but that's to be expected."
Pros: "I love it"
Cons: "Older aircraft seats quite hard entertainment on last flight to Copenhagen entertainment was average."
Pros: "Friendly and approachable cabin crew."
Cons: "Boarding was not good. No clear announcement. No special boarding for star alliance gold member."
Pros: "Flight cancelled"
Cons: "Contact passengers promptly and suggest solution"
Cons: "I did not fly out that night due to the covid testing needed. We bought the ticket November 11 it did not say we needed to get tested before flying When we went to check in there was a long line because a lot of people that was flying out did not know also about getting tested before flying Eva employees said that this protocol started December 1st if that’s the case why didn’t they email travelers that bought tickets before December 1st And let them know that covid19 test needed. Also at check in we were inline for 2 hours just to let us know we couldn’t fly out they should have a Monitor saying “ ATTENTION PASSENGERS IF YOU DON’T HAVE COVID-19 TEST RESULTS IN HAND YOU CANNOT A BOARD.” So that people didn’t half to stay in line for so long."
Pros: "The crew was great and the food was great as well!"
Cons: "More snack bags"
Pros: "Flight perfectly on time. Crew not too friendly (Chinese style), but attentive and helpful."
Cons: "On this B777-300, the large Economy Premium is not quite up to the standard of other airlines flying the same model. The tray table, stored in the arm-rest on all rows, is tiny, and opens only a few inches, not enough for pregnant women or gentlemen with some mid-section padding. I could not use it at all, and had to balance my meals on my knees. Besides, when the passenger in front reclines his/her seat, the seat invades totally the space of the passenger in the back. I felt the passenger was resting on my lap. Forget using a laptop, or even reading a book: just watch your screen, a couple inches from your nose. Good for short-sighted people only! I tried EVA and was disappointed. I'll go back to my preferred airline, Vietnam Airlines."
Pros: "Crew was great and were timely in boarding and deplaning processes. They were willing to help when asked."
Cons: "As a 6’ tall, broad shoulder individual the seats were narrow and there was not much leg room. Fortunately there was an empty seat directly next to me which afforded me some space."
Pros: "The food was pretty good and the crew was very attentive. Checking was easy."
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "The food was great. The crew is great also. The seats are just economy seats. Hard to give them"
Cons: "There was a delay on boarding. Don't know exactly why as we where 40 minutes late when we landed in Seattle."
Pros: "To actually catch the flight BUT it was cancelled leaving me having to buy another $AUD666 ticket DISGRACEFUL BY BUDGETAIR AND EVA!!"
Cons: "For EVA to GIVE me a REFUND KAYAK can HELP me get a refund"
Cons: "My first meal was kind of burnt, and I wish they would offer a salt and pepper packets. Also, more frequent Rounds to pick up trash would be helpful"
Pros: "The Eva aircrew provided excellent service and were very attentive. They provided a blanket, small pillow and earbuds for the TVs. There was a great selection of current TV shows, movies and music to keep you entertained. There were 3 meals on my flight and they were all decent."
Cons: "The seats were decently comfortable, but given that this was a longer flight I wish there was a little bit more cushion. I also wish that there were some vegetarian food options."
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: "Checked and arranged seating accordingly."
Cons: "Crews could've been more friendlier and accommodating."
Pros: "The crew was very warm hearted to offer small toys to my 3-yr old niece to comfort him during the flight."
Cons: "The meal was a bit disappointed for it is only sandwich with cold chicken meat... not even offer hot food option especially for kids/elderly."
Pros: "This is a bit weird, but it was the first time I flew Eva economy. I've taken this route many times in business and it would take pages to go through all the things that EVA does right in business class. So I was stunned when my first time in economy was so incredibly impressive as well."
Cons: "I'm really picky and there's nothing more I could have wanted in an economy flight experience."
Pros: "The crew was good. There were only 39 people on a 737 1/2 hour flight, so not much to comment."
Cons: "This was a connection to an EVA flight. I had 1.5 hours to clear immigration/customs AND go to the gate which was on the other side of the terminal which involved taking 2 shuttle trains and walking to THE END of the terminal C where the shuttle train was being rebuilt; only to discover the gate had"
Pros: "I travelled on Eva a few times a year, was used to and liked Eva."
Cons: "Arriving at JFK on time after 16 hour nonstop flight on Eva, we passengers were told the parking space was occupied and we had to wait one hour on the plane. The Eva ground crew had 10+ hours to arrange a space for the plane, as it steadily approaching its destination, and the arriving time was 10pm, hardly a busy hour of an airport. Another disappointment: as before, I took the bus provided by Eva to neighboring states. This night the arrangement was awful. Poorly organized Eva crew kept all on the roadside, with only three of the five buses next to us, we passengers waited in the open, without a schedule or clue. We were lucky for the night was warm. In a typical NY winter night, 10 Farenheit and windy, we‘d be hurt more."
Pros: "Crew was the best part. They were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Very limited English movie selections for such a long flight. Could not turn Chinese subtitles off for some. Very distracting. Seats in economy (according to online comparisons) are some of the best in the industry but I felt extremely cramped and uncomfortable for the entire flight. Long haul flights should not have seats this small. Also, for health reasons, all seats should have foot rests. It shouldn't be about money, people can die from sitting like that for so long. Also, the food that I could eat was good, but there should be a no fish option. You have a lot of diet types available to choose from but none guarantee no fish. The process for requesting a special meal online was not clear and confusing."
Pros: "First time to fly on EVA, heard lots of good reports about the airline. It was not bad but I expected more. Was nothing close the service you get on ANA, Thai Air or even Philippine Airlines. Smile once in awhile EVA Attendants..."
Cons: "Food was the worst airplane food I’ve ever had. Entertainment and movie selection was not great. But it is geared more towards the Chinese market, maybe those movies are better. Crew was professional but cold as ice. Think I got one smile from a an Attended."
Pros: "Flew with EVA 16 years ago to Hanoi, Vietnam and again in 2018 to Hanoi, via Taipei. Very professional, attentive, good food, little amenities that make a difference in the overall experience of traveling. Very clean bathrooms, even after a 16-1/2 hour flight to Taipei it was still clean at the end of the trip. Food was good and plentiful, wine, spirits, beer, and non-alcoholic beverages offered. Came around at least three times on the leg to Taipei with food and water and when I wanted more water they gladly made sure I stayed hydrated on such a long flight."
Cons: "Baggage rules on itinerary didn’t match reality. Baggage 7kg was enforced, check in bags almost empty as documents & computers weigh a lot, and cant be trusted to “check-in”. If I had know we could check in four bags free it would have made a big difference. The itinerary says one each, plus one for Premier status, which adds up to three in our case. Not a happy camper. Will avoid EVA when there are other good choices. My wife had advised against EVA to begin with, check-in confirmed her advice. Crew didn’t come by much with water or juice, but they were courteous. Seat belt sign was put on when bumpy, but not turned off for the next hour or two of smooth sailing. “I told you so” was here reaction . . . ."
Pros: "Exit row seats"
Cons: "Delayed. Gates had to be changed too and boarding took longer than what was announced over PA, a bit chaotic. Had to rush to make connecting flight. In flight entertainment had to be rebooted"
Pros: "Great friendly and efficient service! Very lovely hostesses"
Pros: "Excellent and responsive service from what must be the most attractive flight attendants on the planet. Seats even in basic economy are very comfortable with adequate legroom for my 250 lbs frame. Food is good with two choices and an option to customize online prior to the flight; and drinks are offered several times during the flight with numerous choices plus hot coffee and tea. Restrooms are cleaned several times during the flight and are stocked with amenities like toothbrush and paste, blindfold for sleeping, lotions etc."
Cons: "Why is the flight to Asia so long? Maybe the pilot could step on the gas?"
Pros: "2 free meals, attendants were very nice and ready to serve, free wine and multiple coffee and tea and drink calls. Also the flight was cheaper than most, which credits all the previous feedback provided."
Cons: "Can't think of anything. Trip was pretty nice."
Pros: "Movie on board is good"
Cons: "Food not so nice"
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: "Everything is perfect"
Cons: "Boarding- I booked my family flight 6 months ago and then a month before departure EVA changed our flight splitting my family up. I had to keep calling them to restore it back to original flight but was unsuccessful. This is the worst customer service and business model ever!!!!! I will have to get rid of my membership... Food- They ran out of the beef dinner I wanted so they served a substitute. It tasted awful!!!! The seafood dinner on the return trip home was also awful! They need to find a vendor that can cook western dishes well. Comfort- The seat for the economy doesn't have enough leg room esp for a 16 hours flight. Crew- can be more friendly. No one is smiling or accommodating to a small request! They are very stingy in terms of offering extra water, ginger ale or juices."
Cons: "Airline seemed to be extremely stingy with the food and beverages during my 12hr + flight. Felt like I had to fight for every little bit of extra scrap of food and explain why I needed it. It was also very limited options almost everything in the menu contained pork and if you did not pre-order a meal in advanced then it was hard for you to get anything else to eat. Airline also forces you to take out your headphones from the TV set almost 20 minutes before arriving for some odd reason. And on my flight we had a two hour delay on the tarmac."
Pros: "Everyone was super super welcoming and accommodating. My favorite part was them not waking me up for a meal, instead they left me a sticker to call whenever I’m ready to eat."
Pros: "EVA Airlines was a wonderful experience from the beginning all the way to the end. From checking in to receive boarding passes, boarding, stewardess, the food, everything was wonderful. They were always pleasant and had a smile on their face. When my trip was changed by the website (vayama) to fly back to the states, EVA Airlines went above and beyond to make sure I was taken care, placed on another flight, and made it home to get to work the next day. They didn’t have to take care of me, but the did and the professionalism is amazing! I’m very pleased with this airline and will fly with them again!"
Pros: "They were very efficient and did their job well. Entertainment systems worked well, were easy to use and the controls didn't impede use of armrests. I didn't measure the recline but it seemed a little more than typical. The food was very good."
Cons: "Entertainment choices were too few, and there were only a few newly released movies."
Cons: "the food was a shame"
Pros: "Love the experience of tasting all the different variety of foods, and the AMAZING shopping they had to offer, not to mention the friendly people I came in contact with."
Cons: "Since I traveled with my daughter (4yo), I got to board early from LAX to TPE but my second flight from TPE to BKK, I had to wait till they called my zone seat. I was holding my daughter at that point since they took away my stroller way earlier than the boarding time. I would like to ask for the same standard of parents traveling with children who are 6 or younger to board first so they can get settle and these patents are tiring from dealing with their children during the flight. They are extra tired than regular passengers."
Pros: "I actually loved the whole trip. The aircraft still looked like it was brand new on the inside even though I'm sure that it has probably been in the air for a few years now. The service was great from the seemingly effortless takeoff and landing by the pilots to the flight attendants being very efficient and caring. The ambient temperature of the cabin was great. I had a wonderful experience and when I return home I will not hesitate to book with EVA again for any of my international flight needs."
Cons: "It's not really even something that I didn't like because I know learning a second language is hard any way but every once in a while when the flight attendants made announcements they would either run English words together into one word or pronounce it a little wrong but I still could understand everything that they were saying. So if I have to suggest something that is all that I can think of and it isn't even a bad thing at all. Thank you for everything!"
Pros: "I took EVA flight 55 from Chicago O'Hare to Taipei Taoyuan airport. Everything went smoothly, from the check-in where the check-in and baggage staff informed me that one of my check-in bags was a little over weight and gave me a chance to repack the bag so I did not need to pay. Security lines for the red-eye flight time were not long, and once I arrived at the gate, EVA's boarding crew moved passengers along quickly. Flight attendants were very professional and courteous. Landing and baggage claim went well. No complaints at all! I would recommend this flight to anyone wanting direct service from Chicago to Taipei."
Pros: "The service is good!!!"
Pros: "The crew The time of the flights"
Cons: "Food options were narrow Online seat selection wqs not allowed"
Pros: "I was so blown away by how amazing Eva Air is ! Boarding is incredibly organized. There is so much to watch on the tv. They make sure you are properly fed and are always going around with drinks. The crew is very friendly and helpful. The bathroom is stocked with toothbrushes, sleep masks, and even a facial mist for when your skin gets dehydrated. Flights were very smooth and the captain is in constant communication. I was so very excited to fly on the Gudetama jet! I wish I could have taken a pillow!"
Cons: "Their wine pours are a little small but that is literally the only complaint that I have."
Cons: "When checking-in online it tells you to print your boarding pass to bypass the front desk and to go to security when I got the security they told me I had to go back to the front desk I'm going back to the front desk they told me yes it's true so I don't know why they asked you not to go to the front desk. I had great customer service from the lady who check me in at the front desk and my perception of my experience change great."
Pros: "Flight crew was very good. Service was great. Flight took off and landed safely...... most importantly."
Cons: "Hated being told at checkin that my regulation size carry on bags were slightly over weight and my only option was to go over on the floor and open them up to redistribute the weight. I was reluctantly fine with checking one of the bags, however not with being treated so carelessly and disrespectfully. I am not the kind of person that is ok with being put in that situation. As an airline I understand you need to have rules and guidelines to function, however sending me over to open my luggage on the floor in front of 1000's of other people is just humiliating!! If that is such a strict policy you really should have a space with some kind of privacy available and set up for customers to prepare to make things meet your standards. Then he changed my seat assignment for some reason and put me in an exit row..... not explaining that there is NO SPACE AT ALL for ANY carry on bags. That means no pills nearby that I needed, or headphones, magazines, iPads etc. I was really mad when I sat down and immediately asked to be moved. Luckily someone was willing to trade. Needed more to eat on a 14 hour flight also. Was really hungry."
Pros: "I missed the flight , the Manilla crew worked wonders the service was/is excellent.. will never go on another airline!! Told every one how great,, your staff is can not believe service like this exists !!"
Cons: "15 hours in a cold cattle cabin , the seats hurt after sitting sitting sitting for 15 hours my knees are killing me.... killing me. the plane is huge , smooth, stewardess are great, the 15 hours are torture -the master torturers love the long long flight times -15 hours to NYC from Taipei -- I am guessing a 747 uses a lot more fuel,, but has a recreation deck usually ,, we can walk around ,,, would gladly pay --MORE!! Some engine manufacrturer will get efficiency from those 4 engines, let the plane (747) run on 2 engines once airborne . just hoping as it is --the seats are c lose together , 15 hours in hell is not good 4 the body.. pls get or find a way- love your staff -- EVA is a great great airline!!"
Pros: "Great flight! The seats were comfortable and spacious. The crew was friendly and informative and the bathrooms were clean."
Pros: "fantastic flight experience. the aircraft was clean neat and comfortable. i loved how they kept the restrooms so clean even through a 13.5 hour flight. I slept through dinner but the western style breakfast was good. The crew was attentive and polite."
Pros: "The entertainment options were really nice. The airfare I felt was good value for the money."
Cons: "This was on the flight from Taipei to Chicago: The woman next to me had an injured foot which she rested on the tray table. She should have been seated where there was an empty seat next to her as there were seats available and it would presumably have been more comfortable. It turned out the outlet for plugging in the headphones for my seat was broken so I moved to an empty seat. I would not have wanted to look at her foot (no sock on) throughout the flight plus she was constantly fidgeting and poking me with her arm Ashe adjusted her foot while I was seated next to her. Unpleasant."
Pros: "cheap airfare that includes check-in baggage, clean restrooms"
Cons: "Some brusque attendants at the counter and on the plane, cabin smells like pee (but only while boarding), standard legroom (72 cm), average food (Turkish Airlines is waaaay better)"
Pros: "We were very pleased with the seating for our long-haul flight. Male 6'2"/230lbs and I had plenty of room to stretch out. Entertainment options were great (plenty of free TV, movies, games in the in-headrest system) as well as reasonably priced WiFi ($21.95 USD for 24 hours, which continues across multiple flights - downside is it's one login at a time, pricey if you have multi users). Food was hit or miss. Generally there was enough of it, but leaned toward Asian-style, which is not always appetizing to western palates (ex: seafood in tomato gelatin). Western options were generally available."
Cons: "The crew never went through to pick up garbage - only collecting the food trays once after meals. Had to chase them down to get rid of cups, napkins, etc. Cabin was a bit warm for my liking. Food (see pros)."
Pros: "Liked the plug/outlet availablity and the movies."
Cons: "Did not get up to date info on the final destination of bags. Food inedible, climbed from tarmac up the stairs into the plane, seats super uncomfortable, not enough customer service from flight attendants"
Pros: "Very good entertainment system."
Cons: "Food was horrible. No drink service. Old seat."
Pros: "Upgraded to premium economy."
Pros: "The plane was new and had a great feel. Pilots and crew very professional."
Cons: "The crew should be friendlier while they deliver their service."
Pros: "The crew were busy but very attentive"
Cons: "I could not plug in my headphones because of the proprietary plug on the airplane. I understand some airlines used to use proprietary plugs to keep people from taking their headphones that were offered complementary for the flight but I’d rather use my high end noise canceling headphones."
Pros: "crew amazing"
Cons: "flight always late as usual"
Pros: "I am so blessed for their upgrade to primum economy, that was incredible experience for me and my two sisters. Thanks"
Cons: "My earphones was broken, a little bed for me. Entertainment without sport news."
Pros: "My cabin bag got lost and theres no way to track it. Complete outrageous."

Pros: "Very delayed flight that resulted to missed my flight going to davao"
Cons: "Slow and old entertainment system. Bad seats"
Pros: "Familarity with airline"
Cons: "Limited food options. No drinks service."
Pros: "All the flights had bad Kosher food"
Pros: "Flight was great."
Cons: "It’s nice to lay down, but it’s not completely comfortable. Difficult to get a restful sleep this time."
Pros: "Overal, very pleasant flight."
Cons: "My headphone jack did not work, but I was able to switch seats. I could see that being a big draw back if I was not able to switch."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Seat on up position are too straight"
Pros: "The crew is so nice!"
Cons: "Same seat selection issue."
Pros: "Sevices and food are good"
Pros: "Comfortable. Good service. No wait for restroom"
Cons: "The seats seemed like they had no padding and it kept stabbing me in the back. Seat belts were so thick and hard i couldn't lean in any direction to get comfortable as it would stab me. My partner and I were also seated separately. Painful flight, disappointed."
Cons: "Punctuality doesn’t seem to be a priority for Cathay Pacific or Cathay dragon"
Pros: "No drinks served before the meal. No water brought round during the night. Cabin staff efficient if a bit brisk. Food not quite OK - no imagination. Films really good."
Pros: "The Stewardesses were polite"
Pros: "Superb crew and excellent service."
Pros: "All components of the trip were UpTo the expectations"
Pros: "Service is good."
Cons: "Wash rooms are limited"
Pros: "Chicken rice"
Cons: "Mess in TPE"

Pros: "CREW AND PLANE"
Pros: "I typically like Cathay."
Cons: "Missed my flight from SLC to LAX due to Alaskan Airlines being unable to print my boarding pass in time."
Pros: "Great crew. Super friendly."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "1-hour delay due to inclement weather"
Pros: "The captain landed the aircraft exact at the time he committed when the flight took off"
Cons: "Technical superiority & safety of operations"
Cons: "Plane got delayed for an hour, WITHOUT any air conditioning. I forgot what the captain said about the HKG airport not capable of providing air conditioning to the plane. Anyway, I began sweating after 10 mins, and it sucks."
Pros: "Flight attendant spoke good Mandarin and was willing to continue to speak it even to someone who didn't look like a Chinese speaker - unlike some Chinese airlines where they launch into English assuming that if you don't look Chinese you can't speak Chinese."
Cons: "A glass of wine or beer would have been lovely."
Cons: "We were scammed by Kayak and Cathay Pacific. We had entered all our information correctly: first, middle, and last name. Cathay Pacific did not print the middle name of the boarding pass. Apparently, Hong Kong is strictly on the passport exactly matching the boarding pass. We were stopped before security and Cathay Pacific decided it was the perfect opportunity to charge us $400 for a rebooking instead of amending the name, which we had entered correctly in the first place. We were pushed back and forth between kayak and cathay when kayak told us they weren't able to change the name on the day of the flight. Will never fly cathay or book from kayak again."
Pros: "Nice flight great service"
Cons: "I like everything"
Pros: "Service is good."
Cons: "Food is too simple."
Pros: "The service and quality are absolutely OK, the airline is awesome!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed."
Cons: "bring back Me Before You!"
Pros: "Everything! Even coach was a great experience"
Pros: "The crew seemed genuinely nice and helpful"
Pros: "flight attendants were attentive"
Cons: "boarding...I prefer zone seating rather than one big line...(but it went pretty fast)"
Cons: "I have heard that Cathay is one of the best airlines but my experience with Cathay on this flight is not something I can say I agree. I hate United, if I give United a 2 *, I would give Cathay Pacific 3* out of 5. The food served on my HKG - SFO flight was not good. Leg room is good but the seat in front is too close to your face when reclined. Staff and flight attendants are good, but I think ANA is the best in this department."
Cons: "I had a 3 hour layover in Auckland before my connecting flight to Queenstown on the South Island. Quantas delays in Melbourne wiped that out forcing me to pay $500 NZD for a later flight on Air NZ. After contacting with Air NZ customer service and explaining the circumstances, they reduced it to $100 NZD. Pretty cool. Quantas basically said that since I had purchased a rock bottom priced ticket I should take a flying you know what at a rolling donut."
Pros: "All was good"
Pros: "I like the free check-bags"
Cons: "I like that if I can select the seats for free after booking ."
Pros: "seat comfort"
Cons: "breakfast, coffee"
Cons: "After a three hour delay and missed connection and rebooked flight, that is when the service declined. We went through 4 different lines in the Dallas airport, almost missed the rebooked flight due to miscommunications and shuffling of where we were supposed to be. And now delayed luggage."
Pros: "Crew were wonderful"
Cons: "The food must have been a bit off, though very tasty. Luckily had a 2 hou layover with nice lounge toilets"
Pros: "Sitting in an front isle seat with leg room and the helpful nice sterward"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Slightly more legroom"
Pros: "crew was nice. but we had massive delays and the attitude of the employees at the gate and on check in, was terrible"
Cons: "it was their fault that the plane was delayed (mechanical problems), when i asked to be transferred to jfk instead of newark, the employees at melbourne said it's not possible. basically it was their problem but refused to be accountable to it or to accommodate passengers"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient and the cabins were welll presented. Take off was on time."
Cons: "A very small glitch was the cabin service. The cabin announcements were read out too fast to follow! Also, the cabin crew seemed to be in a rush to move the food tray away even though I was still sipping my juice. Maybe this was the early morning energy ...Slow down, guys!"
Pros: "Nothing paid a bomb and got nothing for it"
Cons: "Everything!! Never again will I be hoodwinked for the price of a standard seat"
Cons: "ruin my seat arrangement for no reason! We were traveling as a family of 7 (2 grandparents from each side, my husband, my 4 year son and myself). We paid $30 per person per seat so that we could sit together and watch out for each other because some of the grandparents are in their 80's. However, when we checked in, we found out all our seats were re-arranged and in the worst possible way! Our 4 year old child was assigned in middle seat no where near my husband or myself. In addition, the family was divided in half, separated by the service station. I had switched seat so I can sit with my son but my husband had to sit at the other side of the service station to take care of the other half of the family because they do not speak English. I was left to attend to my 4 year old son by myself, which was hard to do. what bothers me the most is that there seem to be no obvious reason for them to re-arranged seats in such a devastating manner - it was not a full flight at all. I saw quite a few empty seats in the back. We spoke to the woman who was the head of the stewardess about the problem upon boarding, she said she would try to see what she could do, but she never got back to us at all. The seats were horrible seats for a few reason. First, there were a lot of traffic and noise from crew and other passengers because they were next to the Service station. Second, we were always the last one to receive food service because of the location. This is a problem when you have 4 year old and 80 years old who were diabetics."
Pros: "Food was good. Crew was very accommodating."
Cons: "Very cramped seating. Trouble with iPad service."
Pros: "Super easy flight out of Auckland. Arrived in Nelson ahead of schedule."
Cons: "...the person coughing behind me..."
Cons: "Qantas is the source of unlimited frustration for us. We could not check in online, and it wasn't even possible to choose a seat before you got to the airport unless you wanted to pay a premium for it. To make matters worse, there is no transparency in the process; we had no idea what seats they were assigning us, or even whether the three of us would be able to sit together. And when we showed up at the airport, the last leg of my flight had been deleted from my itinerary (but not that of my family members). And guess what? They couldn't do anything about it until I was ready to get on that last flight! The crew were great, but all the behind-the-scenes aspects of Qantas were absolutely horrible. Two days later I'm still reeling from the experience. What a terrible way to treat customers."
Pros: "The fresh fruit platter choice for breakfast"
Cons: "No fresh towels to wash hands & face before being served food"
Pros: "It was a good flight overall."
Cons: "Baggage arrived late."
Cons: "Nothing not to like"
Pros: "The plane was small, but it was my first time, so it was cool. The flight was quick and easy, and they covered my luggage even though it was too big for the plane overhead lockers."
Pros: "Friendly crew Comfy space Reasonable food Boarding was easy"
Cons: "Would have liked to be offered a second hot drink or would like the cups to be a bit bigger. Fresh food"
Pros: "The on boarding process"
Cons: "The plan was in very poor clean conditions. The seats were discussing to sit."
Cons: "No options for seat choose which totally rubbish don't like deal with Qantas in future"
Cons: "We did not make this flight"
Pros: "quick on time flight"
Cons: "cabin VERY hot and cramped"
Cons: "This is the worst travel i've ever had. Got stuck in sydney because the first flight was delayed. I booked emirates and payed more to be on an emirates flight and to avoid flying with qantas. As qantas operated the first delayed flight i missed all my connecting flights and i'm still teavelling right now. Still in sydney. Never going to book through here again!"
Cons: "Seats very cramped with 6 children sharing seats invarea"
Pros: "Very good service"
Cons: "Food was very average for business class"
Pros: "Good crew service"
Cons: "Food was tasteless just warm and food servied don't reflect the menu."

Cons: "Stop sending me these emails. I didn't even take this flight."
Pros: "Good Food and ok services"
Cons: "2 hrs delay. Entertainment system froze and no sound from time to time. Dirty seats."
Cons: "Purchased seats at front of plane and parent with toddler travelled get alone. Assured seats not at back of plane. But once on plane was the very last seats and no recline."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Business class seating is not of international standard. Time to put upgraded accommodation in business class on this sector. I will not be flying this sector again with Qantas."
Pros: "The Staff were friendly during the whole flight. Seats were really comfortable and good movie and song choices. Boarding was fast."
Cons: "The headphones looked quite dirty so I used my own. The breakfast meal was bad, especially putting in a hash brown that just gets soggy."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and lots of entertainment choices on the flight"
Cons: "I checked the flight prior to going to Auckland airport and all showed on time, by the time we cleared immigration and were in the airport we were notified of a six hour delay due to mechanical issues. I realize these things happen, but earlier notification would have prevented an 8 hour stay in the airport. The seats are pretty close together for a 3.5 hour flight. After hearing a lot of positive comments about Qantas, this was not a great first impression"
Pros: "The new clear aircraft"
Cons: "The fruit was not ripe and not edible."
Cons: "2 hours late leaving"
Pros: "Loved the leg room, kind attendants, great meals."
Cons: "The technology malfunctioned the entire flight. It was less than ideal."
Cons: "Flight delayed for 8 hours. Flight was to leave at 6.20am but left at 2.30pm. My whole day wasted. Very trying and begin in the airport at 4.00am for reporting and this happens.."
Pros: "Good pillows."
Cons: "They let us know by email little before departure that there would be a delay of 1h 15 min in our arrival to London. This made me uneasy from the very beginning that I would lose my London-Luxembourg flight. The crew in the boarding gate, only after much insisting, said they would make a note so that someone from Qantas would wait for me and help me get my London-Luxembourg flight no problem, but in the next stopovers (Melbourne, Dubai), there was no sign of this. Also, the delay in the end was 2h 20 min - and I lost my flight to Luxembourg."
Pros: "We didn't experience any problems, all went well."
Cons: "I can't think of anything I didn't like,"
Cons: "Boarding was terrible. No announcement when it was late."
Pros: "Everything was wonderful, the crew were all very polite and boarding went very smoothly."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "My name is Parag Mokashi, Indian Passport No. Z1788332 had booked 2 return air tickets from Singapore to Auckland with details as follows: Qantas Airways Flight QF6 - Depart Singapore Changi Apt, SG (SIN) 01Dec16 (Thu) 23:50 Arrive Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 02Dec16 (Fri) 10:50 Flight QF145 - Depart Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 02Dec16 (Fri) 11:55 Arrive Auckland International Apt, NZ (AKL) 02Dec16 (Fri) 17:10 Flight QF144 - Depart Auckland International Apt, NZ (AKL) 13Dec16 (Tue) 08:35 Arrive Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 13Dec16 (Tue) 10:15 Flight QF81 - Depart Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 13Dec16 (Tue) 11:15 Arrive Singapore Changi Apt, SG (SIN) 13Dec16 (Tue) 16:30 I had booked these tickets online through CheapTickets.sg on 17th September 2016. While booking the tickets mine and my wife’s full details such as the Name, Nationality and Passport were given. In spite of this nowhere was it mentioned in the Quantas terms and conditions or any prompt/popup given while booking the tickets that Australian transit visa is required for Indians since the flight is via Australian city. I had booked the tickets well in advance and had enough time to get transit visa had there been any information about it mentioned. On 1st December 2016 when we went to the Changi airport we were not allowed to board the plane as we did not have the Australian transit visa. We were told by Quantas personnel at the airport to go to the Australian embassy in Singapore to get the transit visa and that we would get it within a day. Next day we went to the embassy and found that the Australian visa is done by VFS global at a different address. When went there they informed us that Australian visa takes minimum 5 days. I had all my hotel bookings in New Zealand already done hence I had no choice to take a direct Singapore Auckland flight via Singapore Airlines at a very high price on the next day. I also lost one day of my hotel booking in Auckland and had to forfeit the money. I and my wife had to go through the psychological trauma of being refused to board the plane, then the next day running around the Australian embassy / VFS global office for trying to get the Australian transit visa and facing the uncertainty regarding our new Zealand trip which was planned well in advance for our 25th wedding anniversary"
Pros: "I lucked out and was able to get a emergency row seat which helped tremendously because of having long legs."
Cons: "What I don't like is what is true of all airlines now and that is that if you are born with long legs you are penalized and expected to pay more money than people with short legs - that is prejudice and not fair to people that cannot do anything about it. I understand charging obese people extra because they have a chance to change it. Also, seats are too narrow now!!!"
Pros: "Good crew, spacious seats for economy. Good food."
Cons: "I wish they let us pick our seats, but they were assigned."
Pros: "Thoughtful and friendliness of the Crews"
Cons: "None that i can think of"
Cons: "Seats where narrow"
Pros: "Great choice of films...Large screen in an economy seat!"
Cons: "The food...but I never like airline food."
