Will recommend it to my circle of friends and relatives! Thank you very much. You are the best airline I've used since 1976!"
Pros: "Staff are great and on board service was good. Boarding is always well organised from Changi however it was a full flight and as always half the passengers exceeded their carry on allowance. Rather than addressing this bags were flung everywhere no nowhere within your actual reach during the flight. Very annoying when you are a passenger who does the right thing."

Cons: "Business class seats were uncomfortable compared to other business class. They're not lay flat seats, and I can't get the seat even close to flat because my feet jam in to the bottom of the seat in front of me. The food wasn't great, some of the meal which was supposed to be served hot was still cold."
Cons: "I Booked a flight that stated that it only had one stop in singapore, then direct to SFO after arriving in singapore i was told that i had to go to a transfer counter, that there was a problem with my ticket. after arriving at the transfer counter they took my boarding pass for my dircet flight to SFO, & told me that i now had a stop in hong kong, that the direct flight to SFO was over booked!! this is not right i wouldn't of booked this flight if they had been truthfull about the extra stop. i will never use singapore airline or kayak again!!!"

Cons: "Never ever get free upgrade"
Pros: "Excellent crew services"
Cons: "Entertainment system is rather tired for today’s standard for first tier airlines, in particular the headphone jacks which may not work from wear & tear. It’s a hit & miss whether the sound works or not. Obviously mine didn’t on one side this time. Very frustrating if you are on a long flight and there’s nothing you can do if the flight is full."
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: "Boarding ok, timely departure. Food very good for plane food."

Pros: "Great service with a smile and can do attitude"
Pros: "Singapore crew are on their feet and working for the entire flight. Great service!"

Pros: "crews are energetic and warm welcoming passengers."
Cons: "aircon temperature is too hot for seat 50H area."
Pros: "I liked how often the staff walked down the ailes to help. They are very attentive. The entertainment is endless. Seats were standard in economy class, I recommended upgrading for that long of a flight."
Cons: "To my flight specifically, it got adjusted without telling me so I ended up missing my final transfer. I was not given a notification for a flight change. Someone met me at the end of my second flight to tell me I missed my connecting flight. With the adjusted flight Singapore gave me, there was no chance I would have made it. They did purchase a ticket for me on another airline to get to San Francisco in the end."
