Cons: "For a premium economy service, it was really good."
Pros: "Yes and yes"

Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Boarding was just ok, but departure delayed by half hour. Seats were really poor. Zero comfort.. felt like sitting on a cramped park bench. Entertainment system is ancient. Can't see and can't listen properly. Didn't expect this type of horrible aircraft from Singapore Airlines!"
Pros: "Got bumped to Business Class"
Pros: "everything in suite class"
Pros: "personel provided excellent service"
Cons: "food was ok. A faulty entertainment system did make our flight feel longer."

Cons: "The food was disgraceful, the entertainment, the quality of the movies was poor.."
Pros: "Five Star Singapore Service on board the aircraft."
Pros: "Everything on time and smooth. Great service. Great pillows and. Plenti snacks anytime I want it. Very comfortable seats. Entertainment System fabulous."
Cons: "All good"
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."

Pros: "Boarding was great. Staff was cordial. Excellent flight."
Pros: "Staff were very attentive and checked in on us regularly to make sure we had everything we needed. Food was great and ammenities kept spotless."
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."
Pros: "Friendly efficient staff. plane 777 business class seat comfortable, and flat bed, once you figured out how to operate it was also comfortable. Food was good but not excellent compared to previous flights."
Cons: "Singapore Airlines business class lounge in Melbourne was less than impressive and the food was atrocious. Lounge in Singapore was large but still overcrowded. Amenities much better and the food was plentiful and interesting."
Pros: "Spacious seats. Lovely food. Wonderful crew. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Interior felt dated given all the awards the SQ has received for its planes and service, but everything was functional. Overlooking the interior, flight was superb. Very happy."
Pros: "It's not the cheapest way to fly but it's a great way to cross the Atlantic. Seats are big enough for 2, really. Lay flat beds make the night crossing east tolerable. You really can get several hours sleep. The cabin crew is outstanding, patient, and extremely responsive to requests. Two meals served were excellent. Entertainment choices were complete. After a number of flights in Economy on other airlines I'm spoiled by Singapore Airlines and also by Business Class. And their fares seemed much less than others for the JFK to FRA route. Had no idea this level of luxury existed on an airplane."
Cons: "My seat assignment was moved without explanation on our return flight, FRA to JFK. That was disappointing. The gate folks were apologetic but no real explanation given."
Pros: "One of the best flights I’ve been on. The seats are spacious and the crew are very friendly"
Cons: "Reclining seats tend to make me caustaphonic with the limited space"

Pros: "Excellent service and attitude from ALL crew! Roomy premier economy!"

Cons: "Hostesses not so pleasant"
Cons: "I took the 777 on my flight to Perth and the seats are so so different from the ones on A330. Don't bother with Business class if you are flying the A330. It's not worth the money."
Pros: "Entertainment excellent, cabin crew superb"
Pros: "Excellent crew, who make each person important."
Cons: "Being in economy nothing the crew could do would make it better, however as I have said before Emirates miles rewards should be continue not be lost after a certain time."

Cons: "Great flight back to the UK, flight crew were very pleasant and attentive."
Pros: "The timing of the flight and available entertainment"

Cons: "Scrambled eggs breakfast was more like a mousse and had no texture"
Pros: "The Cabin Crew is pleasant when you are boarding the plane"

Pros: "Everything was excellent."
Pros: "Relaxing Cabin crew were awesome"
Cons: "Not that I can think if"
Pros: "Flight attendants are very friendly, actually smile, rather than scowl at you, as so many of the American carriers do."
Cons: "Emirates didn't allow me to get onto the plane with my 7 lb carry on because of weight issues in the plane. After bargaining few minutes, they were not convinced and only let me get onto the plane with my backpack."

Pros: "Good food friendly staff"

Pros: "the food is excellent"
Pros: "I really liked the leg spacing. It was very comfortable to stretch my legs. Overall it was good. Thank you :)"
Cons: "I felt a little bit more of the nibbles could be included in the 8+ hours flight. Besides that everything was comfortable. Also, the entertainment options can be better."
Cons: "Requested an aisle seat at the front or an emergency seat and got neither. I could hardly move my long legs. I was glad it was a relatively short flight. Is it just on flights to Kenya that passengers DO NOT receive the travel pouch?"
Pros: "I had a fast and easy check-in at Denpasar airport. In flight service by cabin crew was very good, as I normally get in the business class at Emirates. Flight left Denpasar on time and arrived in Auckland some 30 mins early, which was nice. Enjoyed a late dinner - the mie goreng ayam was particularly tasty!"
Cons: "In the past on overnight flights Emirates I have received a pyjama set in the Business Class, which made it very comfortable to sleep. But this time this was not given, so I had to sleep in my day-wear, which was a bit uncomformtable."
Pros: "Obviously Biz Class is a great proposition for a flight of this length and once again the experience was a good one. Staff are always friendly and very attentive."
Cons: "We are not big eaters but when you leave at 10am then a lunch and breakfast is a bit of a stretch and even with light snack options we found ourselves hungry. Breakfast was not too flash"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "The crews"
Cons: "The wifi is bad the food is bad im in business class"
Pros: "All of the above"
Cons: "Nothing that i didn't like"
Cons: "They changed my pre reserved seat without telling me and I was by the bathroom. Super uncomfortable the entire flight."
Cons: "Still flying . I lost my first hotel night what to doooo"
Pros: "The departure and return flight time, for the price I paid, I felt like I was in more than an economy flight. The meal, the baggage quota, the entertainment. The time flew because by the time the movie had finished, we were starting to descend. I will always look for this flight with Emirates. There is no other flight in comparison, in what you get for your Buck. I believe that other Airlines, ie., Qantas, Virgin Aust, both give you a flight and service, for nearly the same fare but you only get 7kg luggage, no meal just the basic entitlement, tea/coffe/water with a biscuit or something like that and NO ENTERTAINMENT, NO COMPARISON!!!!"
Pros: "Nothing comfort level very low. Very poor service. Looks like how to make more money by robbing customers"
Cons: "Bought the ticket from internet after paying found baggage allowance only 20kg tried to contact airline additional 10 kg luggage price was more than the price of ticket. Seating was awfully I am 6'3" did not fit in middle seat requested several times for isle seat my legs were sticking out each time I have to get up to let pass the passengers and staff safety hazard. Have to pay additional 70 pounds sterling for under 3kg."

Pros: "Footrest would be good for a long haul flight."
Pros: "A footrest would make the flight perfect."
Cons: "No footrest. Legs got tired. Felt like lifting them up."

Cons: "Organisation was shocking, staff were rude and unwilling to help."

Pros: "The plane was spacious and we had really good seats , next to the toilet and wall in front of us.

Loved the goodies for the kids, little blanket and scotch pad."

Pros: "Good facilities, food and entertaniment. Seat comfort not so good."
Pros: "Staff on board was very nice and attentive. Much nicer than the crew on my outbound flight"

Cons: "We were delayed by over 2 hours We had no where to park when we landed so we had to wait for buses to take us toche terminal There was no new and exciting movies that excited me"
Cons: "Crew attitude. Business seat was broken and they could have cared less. Business Class on A380 is a joke. Narrow seats, too few disorganised crew arguing amongst themselves and a bad attitude off at least three of them."
Pros: "Flight attendant service is spot on, quick and most of all, very friendly!!"
Cons: "As for this particular flight, I wished they offered a premium economy class. It’s like your either rich or poor...economy or business class. To upgrade on this flight was $1850 each leg!!"
Cons: "Service, food, flying experience in short everything"
Cons: "Connection time in Bangkok was very short due to late arrival. Transit security screening was backed up and no priority lanes were available for tight connections. Staff did not care about short connections and told me to just stay on line. Departure on aircraft was delayed, allowing me to make connection though delay was of listed on boards. I stressed and ran through the airport after clearing security for no reason if I had know the departure was delayed."
Cons: "Hello, My name is Mikyoung Seo who tried to book the flight tickets through your website. I got the e-ticket from you after buying the ticket by my credit card but a miniute later I got the other email from you regarding Thai airline did not process my flight so you recommended me to buy another ticket. So I bought another ticket. Today I found out in my credit card invoice there is a payment to charge for the first flight. Please cancel it before my money going out.

Cons: "More options for music and movies."
Pros: "Food & entertainment are okay like the usual."

Bags also came out first & delivery was very quick. Looking forward to flying Thai again several more times this month & wish I could experience their international service which I’m sure is stellar."

Pros: "Overall experience Staff"
Cons: "Eating time on tarmac Entertainment is oldish"
Pros: "ARN to BKK: Good crew, good seat (Thai Premium Economy - available Scandinavian flights only), on time departure and early arrival BKK."

Pros: "Business Class Seats were comfortable"
Pros: "crew was good. Seat was good but it was a business class seat in a 787-9; so it should be good."
Cons: "wines were mediocre which was balanced out by the good quality of the food. Brussels to Abu Dabhi boarding was a little chaotic with coach and front cabin passesgers packed in a single bus. Noticed many older passengers standing for the longish bus ride."
Pros: "The seat were nice & the staff more helpful than before"
Cons: "Food can be better Entertainment is not good at all, you are starting it after take off, which might take an hour, and closing it an hour before landing Which is something not nice at all"

Cons: "JFK to Singapore through Abu Dhabi. The checking in process at JFK was a mess, it was a full flight. There were many people, trying checking in. Two lines, (1) checking in. (2) checked in, dropping off bags. Some of us who had checked in online was trying to drop off bags only. After waiting 1.5 hours, this line isn't moving at all, while the checking in line was moving. Tried telling the gentlemen in charge who worked there that the checked in line dropping off bagguage was not moving, he didn't really care, they made all kinds of excuses saying other people were waiting, so they were completely clueless as to what was going on. I have never experienced this ever and I fly massively each year. First and last time in Etihad. JFK to Abu Dhabi is a good 13 hour flight. NO SNACKS. SG/BA, or any other airline really has nice sandwishes, ramen, chocolate, cookies, chips. Etihad has NOTHING. Not that I snack but still with a 13 to 14 hour flight, airlines should have something to eat during long flights. Really. Etihad who brands and advertises brilliantly, was extremely disppointing to actually be on the flight."
Pros: "Comfort in the plane and hospitality from the crew"
Cons: "Food served during dinner"
Pros: "Clean & tidy planes. Good service. Sufficient legroom for me - I'm six foot two inches tall & the 787 was great. Much more room than the airbus we flew to Athens on from Tel Aviv."

Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "Good and crew were very goid"
Cons: "Seats were very hard and very cramped for such a long flight"
Pros: "That there was a vegetarian meal on the second leg of my travel. And that the journey is over. Besides that, not much"
Cons: "1 hour delay to begin with. Then trasfer area at Abu Dhabi was utter chaos. While it's suffocatingly crowded, there was no A.C! No vegetarian option for meal on the flight from Brussels to Abu Dhabi. The seats hurt by bottom. One of the worst flight seats ever. All in all, a totally underwhelming experience."
Pros: "Crew is friendly"
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "Business class seating"
Cons: "Bathrooms covered in urine No offer of wake up call for breakfast by staff"
Pros: "Travelled in Airbus 380 for the firstvtime and I was impressed by size of the plane and comfort in economy class. Enough of leg space to bend my leg and avoid bad blood circulation. Overall comfortable flight."
Cons: "Again I found behaviour of few Crew Members a bit rute for instance i asked hor headphone from one of the attendant and she immediately told me that it cannot be missing as she put the headphone there by herself making me feel like as if i stole the headphones. I was bit speechless though i really wanted to reply to her but it would have been rude. Second thing I did not like about flight was foir serving. In our over 7 hour flight, we were just served breakfast in the morning just 2 hours before landing. Its not healthy to keep customers hungry what if the customer is diabetic. Airline need to understand that up in the sky we are dependent on them for our basic needs and it should be respected."
Pros: "As above"
Cons: "Delayed for 13 hours"
Pros: "Etihad showed some kind of discrimination non-muslims wheel chair passengers. My luggage is not taken good care of as they tear my zipper. The crew of are okay but never take good care of seniors with some physical disabilities to check and see whether they need water to drink on long distance flights as many airlines do. Muslim wheel chair passengers were given preferential treatment as I am always last one to be picked up and my luggage came at the end after waiting for one hour."
Pros: "On-bard meals and service"
Pros: "I like the treatment given in the flight from Dubai to JFK and vice versa"
Cons: "The Connecting flight from Dubai to New Delhi was full of chaos. You should consider females seat priority while allocating the seats. I was so uncomfortable sitting with a person who was drinking whisky repeatedly and also please take care of the smell in the aircraft , it was really bad in the flight from Dubai to N Delhi Juice should have some more options"
Pros: "Had the front seats with legroom on a 380, significantly quieter there than in Business on a 777 Was out of Heathrow within 40 mins of landing, usually a lot longer!"
Cons: "Food was minimalistic, bkfst and then a chicken sandwich on a 7 hour flight..."
Pros: "The crew on board were gracious in helping swap seats with a passenger so that my partner and I could sit next to each other."
Cons: "My partner and I had booked our tickets separately and so were under different levels of check in (online). We were first to baggage drop at Ahmedabad and believed the staff at the check in counter would assist in getting our seats together as I have been shifted from my checked in seat on a previous flight. However he was unfriendly and unaccomodating which made it a very unpleasant journey."
Cons: "The temperature in the plane was too high ie it was too hot and not enough drinks given out"
Cons: "Food not very good. Service used to be better in the past"
Pros: "Great vegetarian food and good assortment of latest movies/tv shows."
Pros: "Easy to cancel trip"
Cons: "Kayak did not have technology to know about cancellation"
Pros: "Flight was on time, food was average ."
Cons: "Crew was bit rude"
Pros: "The flight was very quiet so I was able to lie down and get a good rest - I know this isn’t possible on every flight but it made the long flight a lot more comfortable. All of the crew members were very friendly and attentive. The food was really good and tasty (lamb curry I think it was) - best plane food that I’ve ever had. Good choice of new movies too."
Pros: "The service onboard was great, the crew were attentive and looked after the passengers."
Cons: "The Boeing plane had very restrictive movement while seated. It was especially difficult when eating on the plane you could not cut your food due to the space restriction with fellow passengers."
Cons: "Same food both time! All mixed! No one passes water or pick up trash"
Pros: "Didn’t like anything. Only thing decent was the boarding."
Cons: "Crew members did not care about anything, unorganized. actually tripped and fell into the aisle hit my shoulder on the arm rest of another passenger’s seat because of a crew members luggage was in the middle of the aisle and it was dark. Food was terrible. The in flight entertainment was lacking entertainment. Crew members told us we needed to hold our carry on’s, on our lap then to store it under the seat because other people have bigger bags. Even though I got to the seat first and was trying to get settled in. Crew members were eating and on their cellphones in the back the majority of the time. It was hard to get a cup of water. Flew from Chicago O’hare to Abu Dhabi."
Pros: "We ended up being delayed on the flight for about 3 hours due to fog in Abu Dhabi— delays are always frustrating but the crew was absolutely fantastic. The head of cabin crew personally came by to explain the problem and made he passengers feel welcome. Excellent service all around, especially when the situation is unpleasant but not within anyone’s control."
Pros: "This airline is the worst airline ever"
Cons: "My complain is more for the ticketing and not the entire flight. Never got a chance to fly with as I missed my flight. The ticketing guys did not help or seem to be interested in helping me find anoyher flight. All as I was concerned my missing of the flight was taken as a gain for the to make more profit with this situation. The people I called to talk to were so rude and sometime even hang up the phone on me.. They ended up cancel my return flight too even though it’s suppose to be 1 month from now. They did not care if anything went okay with me, they kicked me out of their space. I ended up spending $2000 to book another flight. For this reason I hate this airline and I would never ever recommend it to anybody which I know they wouldn’t care because they will still make money but im gonna warn everybody I know to stay away from this airline"
Pros: "timeliness, in-flight entertainment, food"
Pros: "Great all round experience - good flight, nice plane, comfortable and well equiped with lovely staff."
Pros: "Great service, good economy food also, lots of wine. The entertainment package was really good."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and everything was perfectly on time!"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Fly on time"
Pros: "We took the offer of putting cabin baggage in hold. Some of those that retained theirs had "oversized" bags that should have been taken from them at the steps of the plane. As this did not happen there were a lot of problems including the problem of opening the lockers"
Cons: "Stricter control on cabin bags. The result was that our bags were already on the belt when we got to customs area"
Cons: "Maybe not BA fault but immigration wait at jfk was 11/2 hours!"
Pros: "Given that this flight, like just about every other BA9 flight for the past week, was a delayed departure, this flight delayed 3 hours, it is difficult to say that this was a good flight. The flight was full, and some business class passengers moved to economy class, with some economy passengers being removed from the flight to free up essential "rest areas" for the crew."
Cons: "Whilst I understand that the planes make no money sitting on the tarmac, maybe the schedule needs tweaking to permit a little more time for maintenance?"
Cons: "Some form of entertainment"
Pros: "The crew was good, very helpful."
Cons: "The seat was not comfortable at all. I’m 6.0 and 150lb so not very big but my shoulders were already above the head rest. Also leg space was very poor. This was an American Airlines flight by the way. 777-300 airplane. I’ve had better flying experience before in the Same type of plane"
Pros: "We finally got there."
Cons: "Make water available at Heathrow 5 (2drinking fountains for thousands) and no water or any drink on the plane."
Pros: "The planes departed and landed on time."
Cons: "My bag remained in London during flight change.Have direct flights to avoid such cases."
Pros: "very helpful"
Cons: "That we did not have to have a 4 hour stop over in Madrid"
Pros: "Everything about flight"
Cons: "Ticket price will be better if you make it little bit cheapper"
Pros: "Nice seats and nice enough staff"
Cons: "Delays, no information provided and no water provided while we were waiting to depart. 1 hour delay (57 mins to be precise....)"
Pros: "Crew were great and we left and arrived slightly early which was nice"
Cons: "The in flight magazines and safety cards were ripped and damaged. Not a good look for the flag carrier"
Pros: "Crew and airline was fine"
Cons: "Due to the way the flights were booked, even though I flew on the same airline on both legs of my trip they were two separate bookings causing me to wait in line for two hours in Heathrow to get my bags and check back in. I will probably never use kayak / kiwi.com again."
Pros: "Quick boarding as we arrived towards the end and off quickly because we were seated at the back of pane. Crew were very friendly and flight was very swift."
Cons: "Food and drink was good but quite expensive"
Pros: "Comfortable new plane, friendly staff."
Cons: "Not having over an hour delay followed by buses to disembark resulting in a missed connection."
Pros: "Friendly, helpful and professional crew."
Cons: "Very delayed - both on takeoff and on landing"
Pros: "One of the crew used bad words toward one of the passenger ..!"
Pros: "Yes they were so amazing"
Cons: "Boarding procedures need to be improved upon"
Cons: "not ONE single smile !!!!"
Cons: "I was surprised that BA charges for drinks like water. Flight from London to Warsaw is an international Flight after all. I may understand that food is not served but to pay for water is not a right thing to do. I asked the crew about this and I was told that bc other airlines charge for drinks/ food, BA also ask passengers for money. I have not had to pay for my drink like water on any other flight. I fly with all big airlines like American, Delta, Lufthansa, LOT, etc"
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Pros: "Not much - inflated BA fare for mediocre offering; definitely not business class when compared to proper premium airlines."
Cons: "Cramped seats. Poor food. Disorganized boarding more soon to low cost budget carriers. Which is what BA competes against now, albeit for premium prices."
Cons: "The equipment was old and didn't seem to be well maintained. And they did not offer even a glass of water on a 3 and a half hour flight. Even water was on sale!"
Cons: "Entertainment totally outdated ! Unresponsive screen"
Cons: "Th business class seats were more like economy class without the center seat. Cabin crew always seem disorganized."
Pros: "Captain kept passengers informed on everything, great flight, helpful crew, fantastic entertainment system."
Cons: "Leg room isn’t great for such can’t a long flight and the food was not the greatest."
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Smooth flight. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "My baggage couldn't be checked straight through to the states. Had to pick up bags, go through security again, which limited time spent in the airport to enjoy duty free shopping etc. Baggage allowances were different between British Airways and Virgin Atlantic, which necessitated checking out carry on bags. The gate agent was accommodating and checked them at no charge, but that could have been an expensive proposition if she wasn't perceptive. All food and drinks on this flight are for purchase vs. complimentary"
Pros: "It's a non-stop from Austin to Heathrow. Flight attendants were helpful and professional. Flight was on time."
Cons: "This 747 should be refurbished or retired. I've traveled this flight on 777s and newer 747s. This plane was an embarassment."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful cabin crew, even on this short flight. I liked the fact that the Captain stood outside the flight deck to say goodbye to the passengers. A nice touch."
Cons: "Plane was very old. Seat rock hard. When I pulled the foot rest down the fabric was coming off to reveal years worth of food crumbs. Disgusting. TV screen was tiny. Seemed sort of staff, took them ages to bring food around, toilet was unclean with no toilet roll towards the end of flight."
Pros: "Short flight"
Pros: "It was a peaceful flight"
Cons: "BA just don't get holiday travel. They are hopeless at boarding a plane efficiently, the crew appear uncomfortable with charging for food and drinks, etc. BA compares v badly to Easyjet, Ryanair and Norwegian for efficiency and focus when dealing with holiday makers"
Pros: "Empty seats next to us."
Cons: "1 hour delay (not BA's fault) confusion as to gate location"
Pros: "Excellent, courteous crew. Flight punctual."
Pros: "Crew in club was excellent. Could not ask for more."
Cons: "Ground staff absolutely unorganised and rude. Boarding a complete shambles. No announcement, no group and priority boarding. This resulted in us losing our a slot and the flight to be delayed by almost an hour. One would think they have never boarded a plane before."
Cons: "Crews hair all seemed to be scruffy with bits hanging in their face. Most unlike BA. Only thing I can think of all rest was faultless"
Pros: "The Crew were great"
Cons: "Boarding could have been more efficient"
Pros: "Wine fantastic, crew fantastic, comfortable seats in biz on A380. Food selection diabolical"
Cons: "Food was awgul"
Pros: "Efficient boarding."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Nice crew, short flight, comfortable seats."
Cons: "Only a small carry-on allowed and one SMALL purse. Also, there is a charge for beverages unless you are in first class."
Pros: "Clean, informative pilot"
Cons: "2 hours delay!"
Pros: "It flies"
Cons: "No courtesy! At least soft drinks ought to be on the house - they even charge for water - disgusting compared to US airless that at least offer you nuts and a drink for free! BA is now in the EasyJet-RyanAir league! Awful!"
Cons: "Fresh food"
Pros: "Staff were very busy as flight was full but still managed to be upbeat, funny and polite which always makes things nicer."
Cons: "Really frustrating that the passenger behind me spent most of the night waking me up jabbing the screen on the back of my chair- not much sleep was had . Not directly BA's fault but it would help if use of the REMOTE CONTROL was actively promoted to people- or get rid of the touch screen???. Being typical British I didn't complain there and then :/"
Pros: "On board entertainment was very good with movies, tv, games, etc. The flight was on-time. The food was good. No hassles regarding paying for a checked bag."
Cons: "Small seating area. Paying extra for advance seat assignments."
Cons: "Boarding an absolute chaos, rude ignorant staff, old dirty airplane"
Pros: "Great flight and services"
Cons: "It was all good"
