Cons: "Food was less than marginal"
Pros: "I do like Singapore airlines and all the rest of the airline stuff apart from the entertainment system was great!!! (Unfortunately since there was no USB or seat power my iPad fairly quickly ran out of juice...)"
Cons: "The entertainment system was soooo old. In our seats it was non-functional. The plane wasn't too full and so I scooted over to the isle seat next to mine but again the resolution on the screen was so bad I couldn't read the intro comments to the movie, etc. They desperately need to update the entertainment system on that plane."
Pros: "In general it was all very good - I flew Premium Economy but I didn’t see much difference at all between that and Economy. There was a bit more leg room but that was about it, Having said that Singapore Airlines overall is pretty good - toilets kept nice and clean and everyone well taken care of."
Pros: "Very comfortable"
Cons: "I don’t see anything I didn’t like"
Cons: "Too much stop over"

Pros: "friendly staff top Service top Inflight"
Cons: "old aircraft, no usb or power point charging. choice of 5 movies"
Cons: "I purchased this ticket without realizing that the law stipulated 6-month validity remaining on one's US passport to enter singapore. The Singapore Airways website does not state this anywhere, and it was not until I arrived at the airport that I was informed that I wouldn't be able to check in, but nor could I refund or transfer the ticket. The booker should be obliged, when one enters the passport information upon purchasing the ticket, to make note if the passport expiration time is not valid for the flight. Spent $600+ on the flight, and the customer service person I spoke to from the airport was very abrasive and not interested in helping me figure out an alternative."

Pros: "Helpful staff and a comfortable trip. A plus all the way around"
Pros: "New movies! Yes!"
Cons: "I asked for one of the crew to help me bring up my carry-on luggage, as i'm just recovering from a flu at that time. Instead the FA looked at my bag and asked me in an irritated tone if my bag was really that heavy? I said I was recovering and I just need an extra push once I lift it up into the cabin. In the end she did help but i did not appreciate her attitude and felt disappointed my whole flight."
Pros: "Red wine was good"
Cons: "The seats in economy are now Way TOO SMALL! You better start calling Economy - "Stearage"! Food was not as good as on past flights with SA. Movie selection not as good as past SA flights. Earphones supplied are horrible!!!"

Cons: "The get out and get back in halt at Hong Kong. Practically the entire flight had to do this, quite wasteful. Bad customer experience. Find a better way please! If Hong Kong makes you do that switch over to another airport, better yet make no halt. I have flown direct from SF to Singapore before so not sure why this halt."

Cons: "The flight left late, making it stressful to catch my connecting flight in Auckland."
Cons: "Basic flight with no frills"
Cons: "Entertainment and seat comfort"
Pros: "Seats rows seemed to be more distance apart than other airlines. Flight was actually done by Air New Zealand rather than Cathay Pacific.

Pros: "Agents went above and beyond to help. Wish I had names because I was REAL impressed at how much they helped to get our bags checked.

When I checked in on line I was not notified that I should buy the checked backs online so assumed one bag each was free. Instead we were charged $nz120. This is not acceptable and I would like a refund. Please help on this request. Thank you."
Pros: "The regional flights are nice and quick with no frills or complications. Everyone is in one cabin and you can quickly board using kiosks at the gate."
Cons: "You might want to bring a book on this flight or something as their in-flight video and adverts are all you'll really see in terms of entertainment."
Pros: "Plz could u guys add Korean subtitle to movie or tv . Because when i was boarding, i couldn't find any Korean subtitle. I can understand English so that's find. But it let me think u guys don't really care Korean market ."
Pros: "Cabin crew was fantastic! Inflight experience was woderful."
Cons: "Airport personnel were very unhelpful. When I asked them a question, they told me to come back later. I came back at the time they said to and they told me they don’t have time for me. I need to come back another time. I went to another gate agent and she told be to go downstairs to the check in counter for help. That would have taken 2 hours. I called customer service and they answered my question quickly. I just wanted to know if I would be charged a fee to change my flight."

Cons: "Seats too narrow."

I was ask to go to another person who issued me check in baggage sticker and told me to hand over your baggage to a person inside. At last he mentioned to not put any valuables in that bag. My carry on bag was just 1lb extra and the first person could have told me right away and I would have thrown away chocolates and brought down the weight to permissible limit. In general passenger do carry valuable stuff in carry on bag. I had to follow whatever I was told."

Pros: "Crew was friendly. Comfortable."

Pros: "Decent food, real utensils, free wine, excellent entertainment system, free limited wifi. Try finding that on a budget airline"
Cons: "The bus ride took over 10 mins. Why are flights to South Asia and other developing countries not given boarding via the bridge? Horribly long bus ride at DXB for flight to DEL."

Cons: "nothing to unlike"
Cons: "Need nice tea"
Pros: "The plane. The thoughtfulness of the crew. My seat's location. I was lucky to be in the front center! The flight information display. Flying at night across the Tasman Sea it was as though we were stationary (apart from a little vibration as we crossed the Southern Alps). Besides, the Air Bus is so quiet (comparatively). Oh yes. One other thing: the fare."

Entertainment set of was pretty good on their Boeing 777-300Er flight, but average on the A380-800. The 16 hour flight will not be pleasant for most. Why the toilets are so compact? I would pay extra for bit more room. This is a problem with all airlines. They allowed me to take a laptop and a hand baggage in LAX but forced me to check in the hand bag in Dubai. They pick random passengers for this. Irritating."
Pros: "The economy was just as well served as Business Class. There were 22 different countries represented in the crew on the flight. We were served a hot meal and a cocktail. Also, had more leg room than normal. Very efficient boarding system, as well."
Cons: "There wasn't anything about the flight to and from Sydney to New Zealand we didn't like."
Pros: "I requested a blanket for my Son and was told there was none available....."

Cons: "Way cramped"
Pros: "Food and movies"

Pros: "Professional service.."
Pros: "Crew was very professional and willing to help"
Cons: "Selection of movies not that great when you spend 14 hours sitting on a chair for that long you expect at least to have some good movies to watch ... that was a let down. Also everytime they served us food it seemed lime yhey didnt have enough of the choices we were given as the crew had run out of our choices all the time making choose things we didnt lie"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "One of the stewardesses perfume was quite overwhelming."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and my itinerary was re-booked and going thru Melbourne to Perth. I lost half day of my life wasted in the Airport. The worst part of this change was flying on an old 737 thru Melbourne without the entertainment access for this long flight."

Cons: "For a flight that takes 14 hours Restroom on an airbus 380 Toilet seats were showing signs of deterioration Seats very uncomfortable, I have flown on the same style of plane with Singapore airlines and didn’t experience the discomfort I had on qantas Food average"
Cons: "Flight was canceled after 8 hours of Rebooked flight included an additonal stop, as well as overnight layover. Qantas made no attempt to give have better flights or offer any vouchers for the trouble (they provided the bare minimum of hotel, but no additional perks)."

Pros: "Excellet service. I liked where I seat that was very much appreciated. Its nice to have delightful meal and having bottle of water in seat pocket was a nice thought. Boarding was excelent.

She radioed my #s in. Then told me it's still in Melbourne . A security issue. Now I'm about to miss my conecting flight. Don't worry you can catch the next one. At night, it's 8 am. Then only to find out I'm to go from terminal 1 to 3. Had 10 min. together there and go threw customs. Ran with injured knee."

Pros: "Excellent people who made the flight very nice. Extremely personable."
Pros: "Once on the plane, the seats, meals and service was great"
Cons: "The lounge was horrible. Crowded, lack of choice for food and drink. Not even crisps available, just stodgy white bread sandwiches and some deep fried (frozen) samosas. Nothing in any way healthy, nothing meat free. The service was however a very high standard, but the staff only had what they had to work with. This flight is always full, so I don't understand why Qantas does not fix this problem."
Pros: "Crew was kind, food was good"
Cons: "Very little legroom"
Cons: "This was actually promoted on the site as an emirates ticket and only after id purchased it did i figure out that it was actually for Emirates Airways sister airline Qantas Airways!

Pros: "The flight was comfortable even though it was full. Punctual too."
Cons: "Not able to check in on line. Had to queue for 50 minutes at the check in desk. The passport control was almost as bad . I arrived at the airport 1 hour and 45 minutes before departure. By the time I had check in and pass through passport control and security it was just 20 minutes until flight departure time"
Pros: "The crew took care of their passengers' needs throughout the flight with plenty of food and drinks."
Cons: "My headphones or speaker did not work on my TV so I was unable to watch any movies. It was difficult to sleep as I was woken up to see if I wanted food or drink"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient. Entertainment and food great."
Cons: "Crew was unusually subpar for Etihad. They were not nice, not attentive, not responsive. The plane was packed and loud with uncontrollable children and people having coughing fits. I did not see the nanny or flight attendants helping either situation e.g. offering water to the sick, ect. The toilet room was disgusting. The seat was cramped."
Pros: "Charging for devices at the seat, not too cramped."
Cons: "Out of DC, they weighed every carryon item both at check in and at the gate. I couldn’t fill my water bottle before boarding or I would have been overweight... I’ve never had an airline be so picky. And then they lost one of my bags - ironic given the precision about baggage weight."
Pros: "Food service and seats"
Pros: "Same as Above"
Cons: "Same as Above"
Pros: "In flight entertainment"
Cons: "Air con too cold"
Pros: "MUTTON WAS EXCELLENT"

Cons: "Crew needs to be more polite to passengers. I witnessed the crew being rude to multiple customers. Also the good needs work. I've traveled Etihad multiple times before and this experience has made me want to not fly them again"

Pros: "correct temprature flight crew was good food was good"
Pros: "The flight crew were both considerate and kind."
Cons: "I disliked nothing."
Pros: "Good time Baggage smooth service"
Cons: "Food Crew service"
Pros: "The staff was outstanding... The plane was adequate... The food was just barely okay. I was somewhat disappointed having read trip advisory and kayak recommendations on airlines prior to leaving."
Cons: "Flew over on Royal Jordanian Airlines. The plane was like new the food was fantastic and the staff was as well. On at the home the staff was outstanding but the rest was just okay. The return trip was not as good as the Royal Jordanian experience.."
Cons: "Very bad experience and crew was unexperienced"
Pros: "Cabin, boarding"
Cons: "Transit through Abu Dhabi is a pain"
Pros: "مجال الكراسى"
Pros: "Unfortunately our flight from London to Abu Dhabi was delayed and we missed our connection through to Melbourne. However because of the way they hsndled this the delay turned out to be a blessing! Etihad put us up for the 12hour daytime delay in the magnificent Marriot Hotel in Abu Dhabi. The communication and transfer were handled very well. It was a painless process and we got to enjoy a lovely rest before being transferred back to the airport and flying home. Pretty much a faultless experience and one that would see me fly Etihad again without hesitation."
Cons: "Whilst the food at the hotel was amazing, the same cannot be said for the plane! The food was very ordinary. The chicken pie was barely edible. In terms of seating, the seats are pretty standard long-haul fare. There is limited room but the issue is cushioning. They feel pretty hard and it was difficult to be comfortable."
Cons: "I wasn't able to take the flight for the reasons mentioned above."
Pros: "Both of our flight were very comfortable. They gave us pillows, blankets and great food even in economy."
Cons: "The second flight took off quite a bit late but we did make up some of the time"
Pros: "Travelled last minute since my mom passed away. Etihad upgraded us to Bussiness class for asking! It was a very comfortable journey in hard times."
Pros: "Get entertainment options."
Cons: "Food was mediocre."
Pros: "Nice plane, good crew"
Cons: "The entire menu was southern Indian with very strong spices and awful taste. I can understand that there are a lot of Indians on the flight but Etihad should have options for non Indian dishes as only Indians would have a taste for what was served. Very bad experience for our entire family."
Pros: "Crew members went above and beyond but they can only do so much with what they are provided with (food was horrible)"
Cons: "Food, Woren out seats."
Pros: "The Crew was responsive and attentive."
Cons: "The On Boarding process, a bit too many checks on the weight of Carry ons (7Kg)and Laptop Bag (5Kg), which was a big inconvenience and I never experienced with any other airlines and believe me I have flown on virtually every airline. The food options were limited and the crew ran out of food choices (Veg) fast."
Pros: "Great service in their A 380 full floor biz class service from JFK to Abu Dhabi"
Cons: "My bags didn't make it. I had to sit away from my husband as someone had sat in his seat and clearly wasn't going to move. You now have to pay to get an exit row like budget airlines and I had to go two days without my bag. Total nightmare. Then I couldn't recheck in to change seAts online. Food was disgusting."
Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic Crew wss average in service"
Cons: "Boarding process"
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Bad seats, bad legroom and very cramped isles"
Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "long walk at abu dhabi airport."
Cons: "Not enough servings of water. Tiny planes with little legroom"
Pros: "Interior design.Soft warm colours condisive to a relaxing vibe."
Cons: "Only one toilet available for a cabin full of people waiting in line for longer than comfort requires.Entertainment needs an uplift.Drab and dreary."
Cons: "my suitcase plastic zipper was opened by someone in the ground staff at IGI Delhi and a few items were stolen. something needs to be done about this because I am sure other passengers are losing a lot more"
Cons: "No person travelling from New York received their luggage in New Delhi. After a frustrating wait in Abu Dhabi terminus for 24 hours to be subjected to another wait & search for luggage & eventually fill the displaced luggage forms was quite an ordeal. The only silver lining was that the luggage was eventually sent home after 72 hours. NEVER EVER RECOMMEND ETIHAD FOR TRAVELLING"
Cons: "Not attending to call button and not providing coffee or tea when I needed"
