Pros: "Plane was super clean and comfortable. A long flight but we'll cared for by host."

Pros: "The crew service is good. Not great, but still above average from other flagship carriers."
Cons: "The seat (B787-10) is so cramp!!!"

Cons: "Left 45 minutes late though we boarded on time. Pretty bad for a 50 minute in the middle of the morning."

Pros: "Amazing crew! They handled a full flight with screaming indisciplined kids and clueless adults with grace. Entertainment was great as usual"
Cons: "Singapore food and drinks quality has deteriorated significantly. Flights are always packed with uncomfortable seating. These days you get amenities only if you ask."

Cons: "20 min late but acceptable for a 15 hr flight"

Pros: "Crew was attentive and made extra effort to meet special requests from passengers."

Cons: "No complain . It’s singapore airlines"

Pros: "The crew did a wonderful job of anticipating needs and having all the little ammenities you could want."
Cons: "They gave you a menu at the start of the flight but didn't serve any of that food, and the food wasn't very good"

Pros: "I like everything in Singapore airlines"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"

Pros: "The customer service at the Check-in, the flight attendants, the movies and the meals. More than my expectations! Will definitely use Singapore Air in the future in my travelings! Will recommend it to my circle of friends and relatives! Thank you very much. You are the best airline I've used since 1976!"
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Friendly staff Good customer service"
Cons: "There was nothing i dislike"

Pros: "Wow they did not disappoint flight attendants Overdid themselves with amazing service planes are super clean and entertainment systems are state of the art great job Singapore Airlines can’t wait to fly with you again you definitely earned your #1 ranking"

Cons: "The toilets were a little unsanitary."

Cons: "Screaming children. Totally clueless, rude flight crew. Next time kids are screaming for three hours straight on a red eye, maybe offer the parents some assistance. Makes the “perks” like hot towels seem ridiculous when staff are completely indifferent."

Pros: "Excellent"

Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew. Efficient service and good boarding. Seemingly wider seats than the newer A350s."
Cons: "Positively ancient entertainment system with poor selection and bad visual quality. Ads pop up every time you go into another menu. If you're flying SIN->BNE I'd avoid the 7.20am departure, you'll get the old 777-200s rather than the A350s they run on other departures."

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: "Everything SIA stood for, we experienced it, despite the unfortunate delay which the ground crew couldn't have done much about."
Cons: "Unfortunate delay caused by technical issues. I'm just glad we found it on the ground, instead of in the air. But the delay was REALLY long."

Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Very poor on board entertainment"

Pros: "Everything from Ticketing, Checking in......"

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

Pros: "I dropped my scarf and only realized after I was seated. People were still boarding and I told a young man attendant and he found it and brought it to me. And he was such a gentleman too! Wish I knew his name but it was Frankfurt to JFK 835am flight on April 3rd. Thank you again!"

Pros: "Able to check luggage in 48 hrs before flight saving $50 storage fees, so went back into CBD for the day."
Cons: "20 mins late boarding meant plane left 35 mins late although still arrived on time."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "The service from the Singapore Airlines is always impeccable. The food is delicious. The business class seat is spacious and wider than all the US airlines. There are plenty storage space in your seat space. The entertainment system has many choices and has a lot new release movies and shows."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the ride on Boeing 777 is not as smooth as the Airbus'. The noise in the cabin is louder. The seat is comfortable but the bed is not. First, the flat bed is not transformed by a button and it needs a physical person to flip it over. The mat is thin and I can feel some hard edges while lying down. The noise from the engine transmits to the bed and it is hard to sleep even with the noise cancellation headphone."

Cons: "Headphones didn’t work entirely for listening to movies. Had to manually hold it in."

Cons: "Boarding at Singapore airport was shocking, as we had to wait 6 hours for our flight. Rating low to the crew mainly because of the ground staff as they were not very communicative to begin with about the explanation for our delay. Only when the passengers got a bit more vocal about wanting explanations, they started giving us a bit more information. All estimated times given for boarding the flight were incorrect by a big margin! Seemed more like they were giving shorter wait time for boarding just to please the passengers, where as they were well aware of how long the wait would be."

Cons: "Mediocre food, lousy entertainment system that belongs to the last decade. Singapore Airlines has not been the premium carrier it was a decade ago and is now simply a so-so airline charging exorbitant fares."

Cons: "Stewardesses were a bit rude"

Pros: "Entertainment even in economy class was excellent -- tons of movies, games, etc. Cabin crew were friendly. Bathroom was very large."
Cons: "In economy, seating was incredibly tight (very little legroom) and at least in my seat, very little reclining. For a 14 hour flight through the night, it made it very difficult to actually get any rest. Food was OK."

Pros: "Food was delicious!"

Pros: "everything is perfect"
Cons: "the food on Silk Air can be better"

Pros: "Very friendly crew & modern aircraft"

Pros: "The food was excellent for Vegan meals. The staff was friendly and attentive. The ability to see the flight path, air speed and such is very nice."
Cons: "The entertainment was not the kind of shows I like. Never mind, I see the flight path and orher flight particulars."

Pros: "The service and fast flight"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Food, movies, support, were all wonderful."

Pros: "Nothing specific"
Cons: "No real dramas"

Pros: "Good service and entertainment."
Cons: "I didn't like that the flight from Singapore to Mumbai was of a lower standard."

Pros: "Vegeterian breakfast was good thou ."
Cons: "When I asked for non veg Indian breakfast it was over. And there were not much passengers also in flight ."

Pros: "The choices for entertainment were excellent! I was never bored for a second on my 20++ hours of flight. I love how they gave us in-ear earphones instead of the normal airline headphones that keep on sliding off."
Cons: "It was quite difficult for me to get comfortable. Maybe it's due to my shortness, I can't really rest my head that well"

Pros: "The staff was very friendly and helpful. I got plenty of meals and they easily accommodated my vegetarian diet!"

Pros: "Service is amazing! I loved that airplane had Christmas decorations on the walls and great choices of food and beverages."

Pros: "I have never encountered nicer more professional staff. They always had smiles and seemed to really enjoy their jobs. I always tell friends if they have a chance to fly Singapore Airlines to do it. They won't regret it. Especially on long flights."
Cons: "I was in economy class but I would have liked more leg room. My knees where hurting from having little leg room."

Cons: "The entertainment was poor"

Pros: "Everything was great!"

Cons: "Cabin was too hot once premium curtains were closed"

Cons: "It was great. . .We thought a 16 hr flight would be gruling, but it was not at all!! Comfortable seats with plenty of room and lots of bathrooms. The flight attendants were awesome"

Pros: "See previous notes."
Cons: "See previous notes."

Pros: "I liked sleeping for 10 hrs & arriving in AKL ready to roll!"
Cons: "I paid for seats, but there is no record of my purchase at NZ air."

Pros: "Super easy"

Pros: "The crew member in my section was amazing, he went out of his way to greet each and everyone of us individually. The flight was comfortable, boarding a breeze and on time!"

Cons: "The boarding was inconvenient. LAX has just been updated. Gerri g a bus out to the tarmac is something I expect in Africa. Can Air NZ move to a different terminal?"

Pros: "The staff was very helpful"
Cons: "None"

Cons: "Crew was so busy that they kept overlooking my husband and I when doing the rounds of everything, We felt like we were singled out to be ignored, even though we paid for Premium Economy. Our flight was delayed for more than an hour. Food was barely ok even though we had been on Air NZ Premium economy 4 times now, was sorely disappointed with the food provided."

Pros: "Staff were lovely and food good ."
Cons: "Very cramped in window seat, quite claustrophobic really. Not a comfortable 11hr flight."

Pros: "Good seats great staff"
Cons: "Paying for movies not impressed"

Pros: "Good seat, very pleasant crew."
Cons: "No entertainment so can't score that. Basic snacks"

Pros: "I LOVED my flight to LA PERFECT The flight from LA to Auckland was not as good, seating fine, LOVED THE CHECK IN LOVED THE PHONE SERVICE when i called to increase my weight of luggage..."
Cons: "I could not hear the entertainment because engine too loud I did not experience this on my flight to LA , I found the crew were not as pleasant as the crew to LA, could be that they were tired, if i had to rate NZ Airline from my trip to LA.... I would be shouting my pleasrure and did while in LA coming back truly was a different experience however going was so good... I will gladly fly again"

Pros: "Service was very good despite our one hour delay! Everyone was appropriately apologetic though."
Cons: "Flight was one hour delayed not due to equipment but because the ground crew failed to load the cargo in time! That was annoying. (Then an ill patient had to be removed resulting in a further delay trying to retrieve her luggage.) I felt bad for those with tight connections."

Pros: "It was a very pleasant surprise to receive an upgrade at the boarding gate to a Skycouch. While I was too tall to make use of it my wife was able to use two thirds of it and get a good sleep. The flight attendants were excellent, friendly, warm attentive presenting the very best of Kiwi hospitality."
Cons: "Nothing - everything was a shining example as to why Air New Zealand continues to be rated so highly."

Pros: "arrived early at destination ground crew helpful with seating"

Pros: "Most of the flight attendants were helpful and friendly"
Cons: "One of my pet dislikes would be when some passengers have oversized carryon luggage that take up all the room in the overhead compartment of their own and the next one! My bag was about 3 compartments in front of me, which I didn’t mind, until someone tried to claim my bag as theirs..."

Pros: "Very smooth, uneventful flight, perfect, in other words"

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "More leg space should be given to who have height to6”1’ or so."

Pros: "Reliable service. Flew Air NZ twice without any hiccups. Boards on time, leaves on time. Get a biscuit (cookie), drink, and sweet. Had room on both flights also. Not packed to the gills and enjoyed the aerial view of the lovely NZ countryside."
Cons: "Nothing... didn’t give 5 star due to no monitor/tv for entertainment but with such a short flight it really isn’t necessary."

Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "The chicken pasta meal was pretty dried out and terrible"

Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Vegetarian options were all very similar. Over a 32 hour flight time I was provided with beans for breakfast/lunch and dinner. I would have preferrred more variety. Also being seated between two others was quiet uncomfortable for a long journey flight."

Pros: "The crew were very pleasant and the meal was delicious. The flight was really smooth and most comfortable. Not quite the same leg room as the e dreamer."

Pros: "nil"
Cons: "nil"

Pros: "Excellent gluten free meal offered! I appreciate the extra effort with providing a gf bun and muffin with most meals!"

Pros: "the fare is so cheap ,service is excellent"

Pros: "Really great service from the flight crews - smiley, polite and we were served drinks twice from a 2.5 hrs flight. Entertainment program was great with better leg space. Overall it was a pleasant experience! Thanks"
Cons: "No free movies"

Cons: "Crew forgot to serve us our meal."

Pros: "Food and service good"
Cons: "Had a large person next to me so not much room :-("

Pros: "a) My vegetarian meal the I specially requested. b) The customer service on the phone, before my trip in California and the customer service of the flight attendants on the two flights of my trip. c) The blanket and pillow every passenger was offered on the long-haul flight from San Francisco to Auckland. d) The pilot or pilots handled the small amount turbulence we on the plane felt well so I did not feel uneasy at those times."
Cons: "For an economy class series of trips, I have nothing bad to report."

Pros: "Everything was ok"

Pros: "The crew were always smiling and helpful. We were allocated the SkyCouch seat which was pretty nice"

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"

Cons: "Missed the flight because of a very late connection. Air New Zealand and Virgin Australia kept handing me off to each other since it was booked as virgin Australia but on an air New Zealand flight. Neither wanted to help at first. Finally virgin Australia ticket agent took pity and helped me rebook for the next day. This was after I was told by air New Zealand that I had to call the booking number for virgin Australia. I’m traveling from the US and didn’t have a cell phone that worked in Australia... which I explained and asked how I could call the number without a phone. Was promptly told to go over to Virgin Australia ticket counter where I made the one remaining agent who was closing the desks help me. However the airport lost my luggage and could not find where it was. I ended up spending three hours in the airport and still no luggage with the baggage company saying they have no record of it anywhere. Very frustrating trip."

Cons: "Air New Zealand needs to manage double door boarding a little differently - a ticket checker needs to be at the split point - to streams of passengers trying to find their seat in opposite directions just doesn't work."

Pros: "The staff lady told me to there’s no food available then I told I need to buy it last time my flight was Jetstar was good even everyone can buy food on board but leta I called Chinese lady understood how I was hungry she brought me bread with batter and coffee that’s was good and best service I always thank to her service"

Pros: "Air NZ are great. Kayak are not,"
Cons: "I couldn’t tell about the food and entertainment because even after several call to Kayak trying to upgrade to a flight where food and entertainment were included because it said “no meal service” on my itinerary I was assured they were included and what do you know. They weren’t. I will never be using Kayak again. Very poor serve from people I phoned. They did no know what they were doing."

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: "As has been my prior experience with Air New Zealand, I found the trip to be virtually flawless. The boarding process was smooth and efficient, the crew was great and seemed to genuinely enjoy their job, the food was good, and I had lots of choices on the IFE system. For flying cattle class on a 15 hour flight, I arrived reasonably rested and content."
Cons: "My only complaint is that the extra $60 I had to pay in order to get a window seat got me just that. There was no additional room either length- or width-wise and no other advantages other than the window. I would not pay for that "privilege" again and I'm sorry to see that ANZ has stooped to the level of its American counterparts."

Pros: "Really quite comfortable seat and space wise Good to see entertainment still in the back seat"

Pros: "Happy helpful crew"
Cons: "Slow to board and no gate on arrival. Had to be bused to terminal and waited ten minutes for the bus to arrive."

Pros: "Quick, efficient service"

Pros: "Friendly crew, good in-flight entertainment"
Cons: "Flight was running about a half hour late"

Pros: "The capitan spoke and explain that was perfect taking into account that was a cloudy day."

Pros: "Getting on was a delight in Wellington. Having two set of doors open was great."
Cons: "Getting off in Auckland, only the front doors open so took what felt like ages to get off."

Pros: "Food, space, service. Arrived much more rested than in economy."
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "Using a 777 meant longer check in time and was much longer arrival time and baggage collection. Meant I was stuck in Auckland traffic because of the extra time"

Pros: "The best service I've ever had with seamless rebooking and escorted followthrough to make my return flight. Even my luggage made it throughout the short interval layovers!"

Cons: "Seats were more cramped than usual"

Pros: "All flights were on time and all worked well. The booking of the flight via kayak and payment via vayama was a week long process that involved lots of calls to their customer service which couldn't help their poor website and in the process the flight price rose 3 times, so next time, I'll better book directly with Lufthansa and save some nightmares."
Cons: "Full plane, no options to spread out."

"Very good service, all were ok/excellent"

"Kayak/Qatar Airways tore one of my bags. I'd like compensation for it. Also, the check in at Chicago was time consuming and tedious owing to RT PCR checking. That should be made more efficient. Likewise, the check at Mumbai airport."

"Recommend Qatar Airways to everyone! Service, leg room, and food are all great."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "If the police and security in the airport respect the people more!"

Pros: "The check-in crew in Chicago was very nice and efficient. The flight crew on-board were not friendly, they were very curt and rushed, and did not go out of their way to be helpful."
Cons: "Friendlier staff during the flight. Better food for breakfast. The connection port for my headphones did not work...I would not have been able to watch movies if I hadn't brought my own single connection head phones."

Pros: "The crew was really nice and very attentive."

Pros: "Food is delicious"
Cons: "Paid WIFI this time was horrible for the half of the trip WIFI don’t work"

Pros: "The aircraft was comfortable and the electronic amenities were decent and needs improvement"
Cons: "Free WiFi and Dancing boys"

Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "Food wasn't that great."

Pros: "The crew was amazing. I upgraded to business class and am so happy I did for the 16 hour flight."

Cons: "Slow boarding while passengers stand in the queue, late take off"

Cons: "Refund my ticket"

Pros: "This was my first experience with Qatar & it was outstanding. Crew members are extremely courteous & helpful. The aircraft seats in economy class were roomy & comfortable. Bathrooms were kept clean throughout the long flight. Food was very good as was the selection of flight entertainment. Can't thi"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Q-suites are fantastic."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. Premium boarding line was tied up by economy passengers and ground crew did not turn them back"

Pros: "seat was great"
Cons: "flight attendant should be nicer"

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful throughout the flight"
Cons: "The boarding process in Chicago wasn’t great. Zones were not used"

Pros: "Delighteful experience"
Cons: "Better guidance at transit stop"

Pros: "Everything really.They run the airline very smoothly and professionally from boarding to disembarking."
Cons: "They tempt you with so much food lol although some of the food wasnt too appealing.toilets very clean and seemed to stay that way throughout long 17hr flight.good leg room for a long legged guy like me.felt sorry for lady with two young children.She could have been allocated better seats."

Pros: "Plenty of room to move around"

Pros: "Food was excellent and the crew updated us through out the flight"
Cons: "That fee for overweight was excessive"

Pros: "Q-suits. Very comfortable and private. Great upgrade to the 777. WiFi now available for very reasonable price"
Cons: "Bus transfer to Termial 5 is VERY poorly organized and takes over an hour. This makes it harder to get to Terminal 5 even if you don't have to clear security again. Seats had a bar under the padding at about the position of my hips. Uncomfortable to sleep for several hours"

Cons: "Ord to Doh: People kept window blinds open all through 15 hour flight Flight temperature kept very warm"

Pros: "Overall a good service with good food."
Cons: "When flying from New Zealand to Doha, we departed Auckland at 15h25 and due to the time zone, most passengers body clocks would have been expecting sleep within a few hours. However we were flying West and thus into daylight. Sadly the window seated passengers were not asked to close their window blinds to block out the sunlight and many were left open. This made the cabin very bright and a difficult environment in which to sleep. Too much advertising before the on board videos, but otherwise content was good."

Pros: "Good food and good hospitality"

Cons: "The gentleman next to me had broad shoulders, so I spent most of the flight with my body a bit twisted, and eating without being able to move my right arm normally was undesirable. The cabin was kept a bit warm throughout the flight. We had a long wait (30 - 45 minutes after leaving the gate) before takeoff."

Pros: "Video on Demand at each seat in coach. Friendly staff. Also patient staff, what with the languages they have to cover with each flight. The airline goes everywhere so it’s impossible to say what anyone will be speaking."

Pros: "B777 Dreamliner is dreamy. Lots of overhead luggage space. Decent leg room (could always be more). Great individual entertainment screen for long transcontinental flights. Flight staff was a mixed international crew, very friendly, unpretentious, polite and just nice compared to other airlines. The planes they use seem very new. Would definitely recommend Qatar Air over Aeroflot any day."
Cons: "Food was decent for airline food but nothing to rave about and as with most airlines uses too much plastic packaging. Although I was pleased that some of the flights used metal flatware, but still too much waste in the industry in my opinion. Also, the headphone jack was not compatible with my headphones. The type used on the 777 is the dual pronged one. I did not have an adapter so had to use the crappy headphones that are provided."

Pros: "Food was great Seats were comfortable Everyone was super nice"

Pros: "Great service and crew"

Cons: "I’m a 6’3” in shape man. I selected the bulkhead seats for extra leg room. Great crew, but my shoulders stuck past the seat edge 3” on both sides. Qatar should revise their claim of most room in cabin - this 12 hour flight was one of the roughest I’ve had in a long time comfort wise."

Cons: "Boarding at JFK very disorganized. Poor system. No vetting of wheel chair users many fakers."

Pros: "Every thing is great."
Cons: "Food Seat great service"

Cons: "Delayed"

Pros: "On demand entertainment systems seem standard, as I’ve flown Qatar several times and always had it. Friendly staff. And Doha is a great connection airport."

Pros: "I have made more than 6 round trips on Qatar Airways for AMD-ORD-AMD in last 18 months and can not be happier!!"

Pros: "Cabin crew including the ground staff were awesome in providing best of its class customer service. Food and entertainment onboard was really good."

Pros: "My flight from Chicago to Doha was late to come in and there was a gate agent waiting for us and two other passengers with a sign when we got off the plane. He told us that our flight had already left but he would get us on the next one. We ended up getting seats on the next flight but then were also given the option to get a temporary visa and explore Doha for the night. We opted for the comped night which included a very nice hotel and $100 in meal vouchers. We absolutely LOVED Doha and the hotel and food was fantastic! I don't think I have ever received better service from an airline or a hotel. We ended up walking around Souq Waquif and the downtown until 1am (we are two young females!) with no issue and just used Uber to get to and from the hotel. Everything was so well laid out for us! No complaints whatsoever!"

Pros: "smooth and on time with efficient service."

Pros: "The aircraft from US to Qatar was upgraded and looked new. I love the new on demand video streaming, the touch controls are precise and better than previous version"
Cons: "I wish the airline was a bit more organized with boarding. I saw people with other zones boarding even when they were not called. The air hostess was friendly but I kinda got a feeling that she is doing me a huge favor when I asked for something more."

Pros: "Hospitality, boarding process"
Cons: "Food was slightly undercooked (chicken). Should have better process to check for that"

Pros: "Enjoyed the food and the service from the crew. Plane was new and relatively new and comfortable."
Cons: "The check in agents were not very polite or helpful. They did not offer much assistance and help for a first time customer on Qatar Airways. My bags were also not loaded onto the plane and had to arrive on a later flight"

Pros: "Seats are comfortable with plenty of leg space. Aircrafts were clean and tidy. Landing and take off were smoothest I have ever experienced."
Cons: "Menu choice was very basic and quantity was also poor. Food quality was below par in terms of taste and presentation. In-flight crew was inefficient and flow. Meal trays laid on meal tables for hours after the passengers finished food. Flight attendants literally responded in over 30 min of call. I pressed special meals online before boarding. However, the flight attendants were not sure. They went back to kitchen to verify that and return with the ordered meal."

Cons: "No consistency with hand luggage. My companions and I were held to strict weight limits. Others were getting on with three and four bags."

Pros: "The entertainment options were fantastic! The flight attendants were very cordial and hardworking."
Cons: "I was very pleased with my flight. I really have I complaints."

Pros: "everything was as expected from a world-class in the travel world."
Cons: "In economy class, the seats are not as roomy as I thought and leg room space is not suited for overseas 12+ hours travel comfort."

Pros: "Much better knee space. Excellent flight, good service..."

Pros: "Vegetarian food options"

Pros: "The Chicago flight was more than hour late so had to miss my cincinnati connection. Had to wait for 4 hours at the airport to catch my next flight- making the long journey even longer. No priority lounge access provided to make up for the delay. Qatar never getting my business again."

Cons: "Boarding staff give us wrong advice to make extra money from the passenger. They also pressurized us to decide quickly. our each check in baggage was over weight 1 KG or less than 1 KG due to faulty scale at home. Instead of giving us a choice or advice that you are allowed two more hand bags. They pressurized us to make one baggage over weight from all 7 bags and harassed us to do it quickly because they are closing counter in 20 minutes. That's how they charged me another $65. Also they lied on the counter that your seats are in a row but when i went into the plane our seats were separate. Lesson learned don't trust the person over the counter of Qatar airways."

Pros: "Nice crew, clean aircraft, on time departure."
Cons: "Entertainment system."

Cons: "Enjoyed it very much. Great crew and clean plane!!"

Pros: "Fantastic service from check in until arrival."
Cons: "More up to date movies"

Pros: "Crew, food, service"
Cons: "Interior and entertainment system quite outdated. When trying to turn on the reading lights the ones above the seats before us would go on, not ours (21H was our seat, 20H light would turn on, not ours)"

Pros: "Good service, friendly staff, comfortable seats"
Cons: "Boarding in Fiji was hectic, several searches and interruptions in line from staff who had trouble communicating"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "1 hour delay, we landed in middle of night with to sleepy kids. We missed the beautiful tv screens in chair as we had on the way to Fiji and were dissapointed about that, also less leg space in this AirPlane"

Pros: "Trip , food etc"
Cons: "Delays on flights"

Pros: "Economy seats were slightly better than most, but the configuration of the 2 seats was good 2 of us to have our own area. Food was good and unexpected for a 3 hr flight."
Cons: "Movies/TV shows were limited compared to other airlines. I am taller so seating in any economy seat is cramped at best."

Cons: "planes seats dirty chewing gums stuck on seats talking of entertainment not everyone will prefer to watch what is being played there arw children and elderly thats needs to be considered"

Pros: "well refer below"
Cons: "plane seats were dirty had crumbs on it seats had chewing gum stick on it movie how can u expect everyone to watch same movie there are children wlderly no respect to what they like"

Pros: "Superb customer service It was my first time using Fiji Airways along with my children. We usually fly AirNZ or Emirates because they have everything I need. Now we have added a third airline to our list. My kids are also fussy with the airlines we use. But they really enjoyed their flight with Fiji airways."
Cons: "Food was average and I could not put my seat back slightly."

Cons: "No information around delayed flight. There were 4 delays.."

Pros: "The service and food"
Cons: "Plane seems dated"

Pros: "the crew always smiling."

Pros: "Boarding was chaotic. No microphone, so couldn’t hear rows being called. Passengers were pushing to get onboard. No numbers, rows, etc being used. Nice airport."
Cons: "Boarding"

Pros: "The people were amazingly friendly and the airport was awesome. Really small and unique."
Cons: "Liked everything about it"

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable"

Cons: "We were in the last row on the plane for some reason that was not explained....Parts of plane fell on our heads..Not enough room to lower the tray table...Wedged into seat like sardines...Entertainment was the sounds of toilets flushing...We paid a fortune for first half of flight from LAX to Nadi that was excellent...The second leg of trip to Auckland was a HUGE NIGHTMARE that won't be forgotten....Shirley and Ron Richard"

Pros: "Flights were on time. Service was great. I cannot complain about any of my flights on this trip through Fiji Airlines."

Cons: "Fiji airways lost about a third of the baggage on our flight and no representatives would give us any information. Then when we were sent to file a claim for lost luggage, no one was at the office for another hour. While I understand things happen, the way that they handled this situation was completely awful."

Pros: "The flight itself was good, the front end/airline was not so good..."
Cons: "They were a minimum 45 minutes late (one 2 hour, 2 one hour) for every flight. Their running late caused us to miss our connection to Brisbane, so they sent us to Sydney. The ,late flight into Sydney cause us to miss our flight into Brisbane (our ticketed destination city). As we de-planed on the Jetway was a woman holding a sign with 12 - 114 names on it, we were one. She told us to go the the transfer desk and they would help us. We had never been in Sydney, could not find a transfer desk (there was none) found the ticketing counter - nobody there, found the airline office - nobody there, went back to the ticket counter nobody still there, asked a competing airline, they directed us to an air travel management office, where we found Fiji Air personnel. They were surprised we were not told where to go. they tracked down the office manager. We finally met with him at 1:40 PM, he told us our flight was in the domestic terminal and scheduled to leave at 2:00 PM. There was no way we could make it to the plane on time. He was rather rude to us and asked us how we thought we were getting to Brisbane, We responded with "I don't know as we've never been here before". Having never been there. we did not know there was an international and a domestic terminal at the Sydney airport. He told us who we were to fly out on and he was going to call over to the other airline and straighten it out. We went to the domestic terminal tried to check in for our flight, but we could not. That airline called Fiji Air to find out why, after half an hour they were told Fiji Air would not honor our flight as we were noted as "no Shows"/. We had to book another flight to Brisbane. The flights were great, we have had VERY BAD EXPERIENCES with the ground personnel,"

Cons: "I had no problems"

Pros: "Good selection of entertainment."
Cons: "After many hours the seats were not too uncomfortable. But that's after 10 hours flying. It was nice that they reclined like they did. But the padding could have been better."

Pros: "This flight was cancelled due to storms in the Pacific. Fiji Airways put passengers into a hotel and paid for meals."
Cons: "Fiji Airways had poor communication with us about our onward flights, causing us to wonder what was going on. In the end, we were scheduled through another airline 3 days after our flight was scheduled to leave."

Cons: "When I landed in LA after my trip I was sad to find that my suitcase was broken into and item bought were taken."

Cons: "Cancelled the flight and had to cancell the whole trip. They’re the only game in town to get to Christmas Island."

Pros: "Staff and food were great, the flight was also very smooth. I would definitely still fly with Fiji airways, I think the delay just made everything seems worse."
Cons: "We were delayed over 3 hours. The intercom didn't work very well and the entertainment system was pretty much out of order. Also one of the toilet doors wouldn't lock."

Pros: "Previously took 4 other Air NZ flights on this trip and loved them - great entertainment, very pleasant and helpful crew. The long flight from Fiji back to the US was partnered with Air Fiji and it was just a bit above average compared to our typical experience with Air NZ. The boarding experience was really good and much more organized than most airlines, which was nice. Plenty of bathrooms available, they came around with water frequently, which is a must on these long flghts, and every seat had their own screen for entertainment, which is very nice."
Cons: "Seats were not very comfortable, not much leg room especially for such a long red eye. Movie and TV selection was limited compared to typical Air NZ flights. Half the crew was somewhat unpleasant and overlooked passengers trying to give them trash and even charitable contributions when they were going around collecting specifically those things. (The other half of the crew was the more typically amazing, customer oriented attitude.) Not sure if Air Fiji just over works its crew or what, but it was not as pleasant. The food was also back to typical just ok airplane food, not normal for Air NZ which has great food and lots of it. We also were not able to pick our seats for this flight, which was not ideal for comfort or location."

Pros: "?"

Pros: "Foods"
Cons: "Poor communications between crews and passengers"

Pros: "Everything was perfect - from the crew, to the plane itself, to the entertainment and blankets and seats -- delightful and easy flight!"

Pros: "Was fine could have served more water/juice/soft drinks but overall was good"

Pros: "Got to Fiji safe."
Cons: "1. Checked in was very slow. When we got done, we have to run to the gate cuz they are already boarding. 2. Seats were very small, too tight even for people with short legs. 3. Not much movies to choose from, it was an 11 hour flight, at least give us more movies to choose from. 4. Just saw crew once, when they were passing out meals and collecting them."

Pros: "I like the friendly service, the food is good and.they are very accommodating"
Cons: "The air conditioning is quite extensive so it is rather freezing. And the boarding seems very disorganized"

Pros: "Great views, fun airport w live music...seeing storm over Auckland"

Pros: "Good movie selection. Cozy blankets (I'd love to buy one). Overall nice facilities. Smooth flight most of the way through."
Cons: "The flight was unusually warm. Other passengers asked the A/C be turned up but I didn't notice much difference after. The food selection was poor compared to the usual offerings I've seen with Fiji Airways. Dinner's side dishes were a hard roll, chocolate coconut dessert thing, and slice of cake. I was hoping for fruit and/or a salad. Food service was a little slow."

Pros: "Flight canceled. Fiji airways told us we would be booked on Qantas instead but the flight wouldn't give us time to make the connection. Ended up flying later,, longer and much more uncomfortable than expected. F Had to take separate seats from family and middle seats, had to spend entire day in Sydney which required us to spend money on a visa and money to eat, had additional stress of then arriving too late and needing to rebook rental car and arranged hotel and make sure elederly parents with special needs were ok health wise. An overall disaster. Never ever a worse experience and I am a world traveler to 68 countries on 6 continents. Will be asking Fiji for full refund plus compensation for having to buy visas and spend day in Sydney."

Pros: "Time of arrival"
Cons: "Service"

Pros: "Food options were good. Service was great. I think it was a great options with the price I paid."
Cons: "Seats are narrow for some people. It can be uncomfortable if the person in front reclines their seat, since the rows are close together."

Cons: "beware -- your carry on must be smaller than given or it does not go on."

Pros: "FLIGHT CREW ON PLANE ARE ALL SO POLITE HELPFUL. FOOD WAS GREAT."
Cons: "AND HAD TO WAIT WHILE ME AND MY BROTHER SEARCHED FOR ONE. EACH TIME WE BOARDED A FLIGHT WE WERE TOLD THAT IT Won't HAPPEN AGAIN AND IT DID IN LAX NADI AND TONGA. IF MY MOM HAD GONE ALONE WHO KNOW WHERE SHE WOULD BE. HANDICAP AND WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBLE CUSTOMERS SHOULD REALLY BE TAKEN CARE OF BECAUSE THEY CANNOT DO MUCH."

Pros: "Everything was great! Looking forward to going back....possibly next May."

Pros: "Crew was nicest in the air, so friendly, professional, helpful!"
Cons: "Many glitches in the reservations process: my flight records were messed up on 3 flights. Recommend allowing a LOT of extra time for check in if you fly Fiji!"

Pros: "I didn't know there was free hot food and beverages so I just took xannies and fell asleep but luckily they woke me up and ate really good chicken for free I was like wtf how is this free and there was no one sitting next to me so I felt like I was in first class"
Cons: "I wish the plane ride was longer I could live on that plane"

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Crew was tentative."
Cons: "No complaints."

Pros: "They rebooked us on Air New Zealand."
Cons: "Our flight was canceled."

Cons: "Check in was going smoothly until the lady questioned our carry one, which we had used through your our journey. We felt singled out for no reason and after jumping through hoops and complying to pay for extra weight, the lady said, it's ok, and that she was sorry. Very poor customer service."

Pros: "The person at the gate checked everyone's ID's while we were sitting in the gate. It saved so much time."
Cons: "I wish my vegetarian meal wasn't vegan."

Pros: "Cabin crew was efficient and friendly. In general, your baggage policy is horrible. Only airline I'm familiar with that only allows one checked bag?? I believe your aircraft baggage capacity is equal to any other aircraft of the same model so why the one bag limit. The landing in Nadi was horrible. The plane hit so hard on landing that it bounced up and hit hard again. Everyone was scared and holding tight to the seat in front of them. What was equally disturbing was that neither the pilot or co-pilot ever came on the speaker and said ANYTHING! No explanation, apology or anything-complete silence."
Cons: "This was very unprofessional and makes me wonder what was going on in the cockpit? Seemed to take an in ordinarily long time to clear food trays after the meal. They were offering seconds on beverages before they had even cleared the trays."
