Cons: "Time to renew the aircraft 777-300"
Pros: "Reliable service, clean cabin"
Pros: "Very comfortable; excellent service"
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "Flight way too cold"
Pros: "The crew was lackluster; unusual for Singapore Airlines. Tall individuals will not like the business class seats."
Pros: "Crew were very good. Cabin was also much better than Qantas premium economy cabin."
Cons: "Had premium economy seat. Not the most comfortable on the tailbone for some reason."
Pros: "Handset to control screen didn’t work. Airline reimbursed me with $75 voucher for inflight duty-free shop."
Cons: "The hot food was dry and lost my appetite"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Short and sweet. Flight left on time and landed about 15 mins early. Crew was wonderful"
Cons: "Singapore airlines use their antique aged flights for services to chc.unconfortable and a poor in-flight entertainment system"
Pros: "Service was excellent, always with a smile."
Pros: "Cabin crew was excellent and the premium economy seat was very comfortable and accommodating. The choice of food from the variety menu was also delicious."
Cons: "Ran out of options for dinner and could not eat the macaroni cheese they had on offer, so got 2 small packets of nuts flight running out of food options? Pretty slack. A part of the interior wall fell off onto my foot upon take off and I had to hold it in place for a while until a hostess came....doesn’t give you the best feeling when the plane starts breaking on take off. One of the male stewards was appalling towards a young mum I sat next too...too the extent of giving her dirty looks because she spilled a bit of water on the seat and then told her she had to pack everything away she was using, including the baby wipes! I stepped in and told him how this was not ok and all other staff members were helpful and he was making this Mum upset. He should not be working for such a people friendly reputable airline! Maybe Jetstar instead! Was appalled at the entire flight to be honest!"
Pros: "Excellent customer service, helpful staff"
Cons: "Food was unpalatable - HNML. Needs to be improved, the beans in a tomato sauce looked like a tin of dice tomatoes was poured over the boiled beans. Chicken curry didn’t taste good either as it was over cooked. Didn’t relish the vermicelli dessert or the salmon. Thanks for the roll & lactose free butter, the cheese and biscuits"
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: "Ok"
Cons: "Delayed"
Cons: "Outdated Cabin Fit Out"
Pros: "What can I say about a flight of this length? Its always an epic journey to go from the US to Asia. However I will say that with Singapore Airlines things are a lot easier. Excellent crew who were always willing to help with my fondness for a beer. Food was as expected and up to the standard of Singapore Airlines. All round it was a long trip made a lot easier......5 stars."

Pros: "Movie selection was great. Food was decent. Comfort was expected"
Cons: "Our seat neighbors were annoying, but nothing the staff can do about that!"
Cons: "There was on flight attendance which I assume new. She was not able to manage to check with her colleagues whether there was still a food which I requested before giving me the answer. Also, to me little things like fold the cup holder before take off and landing is just a simple task to do without giving a lecture to the passenger when he or she might be tight up with kids."
Pros: "Staff worked very hard and were very helpful."
Cons: "The staff were run off their feet trying to help the families with babies and toddlers. The flight was not pleasant because of the crying and screaming children around us."

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."
Pros: "Crew was outstanding"
Cons: "No sound on my entertainment system"
Pros: "In-flight Entertainment. Orderly & on-time boarding."

Pros: "The food was good."
Cons: "Could have usb outlets for devices. Connecting flight could have arrived on time. Airline don’t lose your luggage."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!"
Cons: "Food tastes horrible. Flight attendant picked her nose at one time right before distributing the drinks and did not wash her hands. You're not given your own canned drink rather a half a cup. Seats are too small/don't look clean. Movie selection was poor. Plane was delayed! Luggage left in Bejing."
Pros: "The crew was nice and the flight was safe. I was skeptical about air chin because of the previous reviews but they did a good job."

Cons: "Had to stop at another city due to weather and technical difficulties. Ended up not sleeping a whole night trying to find my new flight.

Would fly air China again but they need to be more prepared for situations that might arise more better."
Pros: "They tried their best to accomodate but didn't do much to make everyone feel treated well."
Cons: "Flight changed three times with different times. In the end we were delayed for 5 hours and missed connecting flights. They offered a $15 food voucher and forced people to sleep together in a hotel room since they refused to let people who came alone have their own room. They rebooked and made it a complete waste of a vacation day while we wait to board a new flight in the middle of the afternoon."
Cons: "Bad food choice"
Pros: "Crew was helpful and polite"
Cons: "Food was terrible compared to other airlines in the region and the entertainment options were limited."

Pros: "Entertainment and service was very good."
Cons: "3 hour delay and no information on updates/reason. Switched seats so people could sit together then small child behind me kicked my seat throughout most of the flight. It made for a terrible time and wasn’t stopped."

Cons: "No leg room, crappy toilets, rush between changing flights, as there was very little changing time"
Pros: "safe flight, nice attendants"
Cons: "would like more room and better movies and better food for such a long flight"
Cons: "The food and drinks are limited from all flights. Due to the limitation on the carry-on luggage, I had to place my camera batteries and other stuffs to the check-in luggage at the check in counter in Washington DC. The Chinese custom in Beijing took them all. They are normally just take the battery charger, but not the camera batteries. These are expensive items and not conviniece at all to customer."
Pros: "Boarding is smooth, organized"
Cons: "Both flights from SFO to Beijing and from Beijing to SGN all are delayed, both at the gate and taxi out, food is very basic nothing fancy about it, same goes with drink, and in fact I don't expect much from them. I hope they will learn and compete with other asian airlines in the region, like Eva Air, or Singapore airlines."
Cons: "Held my bag for two days, No explanation, apparently just wanted to rummage through it. Stranded in Mongolia with no clean clothes or medication."
Pros: "I like the food. It was good. the flight from Vietnam to China was ok, it was on time."
Cons: "I don't like the wifi in China."
Cons: "The flight attendant shoved me down the aisle with a drink cart. Mobile phones cannot even be looked at, even in flight mode, because of outdated policy. Staff is generally rude. The entire plane was spitting, clearing their noses with loud noises, and chewing with their mouths open. Basically, the perfect airline to display one of the rudest cultures in the world."
Cons: "I could nos use my phone even though I took off the SIM card I did not get a good explanation"
Pros: "The professionalism of the crew was fantastic! The flight attendants did their best to ensure everyone was well hydrated and fed."
Cons: "The seats were extremely cramped for a 6hr flight and the touchscreen used for entertainment wasn't functioning. Air china typically serves some pretty decent food but this time it felt like I was eating some sort of slime posing as beef. I also noticed some Air china flights heat the rolls and others leave them cold. The salad was also frozen solid."
Cons: "Entertainment system mostly included Chinese movies and TV shows and almost none in English which makes no sense."
Pros: "Stuff was friendly and provide newspaper in English. The food was good and served promptly. The flight departs and arrived on time."
Cons: "We were not be able to find our luggage on carousal. Because we spent a lot of time to get through passport control it was servicing other airline. The place to ask the question about the luggage has been closed. Finally in almost 2 hours with help of baggage floor service man we found it with some others people luggage."
Pros: "The crew was very polite. Always available if you need them."
Cons: "The boarding process is kinda chaotic. And you have to take a bus to the plane and enter the plane from a ground staircase."
Cons: "Every time the entertainment was paused for an announcement, it turned the volume WAY up, so loud that it hurt my ears and every time i had to tear the earphones off. I understand not wanting to let people mute the announcements, but minimum volume should be around 30-40%, not 70%"
Pros: "I was able to get a window seat. The crew was friendly and attentive. I fell asleep when they were distributing food and beverages and the stewardess kept an eye out for when I was waking up to ask if I need anything."
Cons: "Air china did not have enough crew to manage the flight. They didn't offer self check in at any kiosk, and they only opened airport check in 2 hours prior to the flight. The lines were out of control. Korean air had to come and assist, which was a good thing because they were much more friendly than the air china staff."
Pros: "The plane was fairly comfortable and had decent leg room. The boarding was prompt and efficient and we arrived about 20 mins really."
Cons: "The food and service is very basic. The bathroom was not cleaned during the flight and got pretty gross somewhere over the Pacific. The food was really simple and not very tasty. China still has some rules which state you can't use your phone for the entire flight so I had to keep it hidden to listen to music."
Pros: "Seat entertainment, food, cabin staff"
Cons: "customer service on ground was weak."
Pros: "New plane w/ well designed seating for space, access to bathrooms and roomy overhead compartments. Attentive personnel & good food--Eastern/western mix. Direct flights from west coast w/ reasonable schedule at gopd price. Recommend."
Cons: "If you book other than Air China, cannot check-in online, but only at airport. Any follow-up (ie seat assignments) must be done by phone w/ endless waits (although I was never disconnected in the end). Didn't really like the movie choices--mostly for kids, or action. I watched Cinderella and a story about a British skier. Ok."
