I felt there were rules for some and different ones for others in the same class which I felt was unfair even though it didn’t necessarily affect me.Water (especially) and snacks needed to be brought round more often especially for people that don’t sleep. I found all the staff really pleasant.
Delays were given at intervals. So we were informed
Cons: "Entertainment and access to Wifi"
Pros: "Efficiency, good."
Pros: "Cabin crew knew how to work."
Cons: "So surprisingly, the cabin was dirty and the seat comfort was below expectation."
Pros: "Handset to control screen didn’t work. Airline reimbursed me with $75 voucher for inflight duty-free shop."
Cons: "Singapore Airlines is so wildly overrated. The service is frequently poor, and the cabin environment dirty and old unless flying on their very latest planes. Even their A380s are now stale and musty. Not nice."
Cons: "Aircrew took my carry on away while I was waiting to board saying it was too large; left me without the essential items I wanted during the 19.5 hours in the air and two plane changes. Other people were allowed to keep carry ons bigger than mine so I don't understand why they did this."
Cons: "Luggages weren’t transferred to Bali together with my flight. Gate check in stroller was sent to baggage claim without notification. I was waiting the whole time after exiting plane."
Pros: "The plane was new. The in flight entertainment system was good, although I never got to experience it fully because the Flight attendant kept switching it off, as I had paid extra (an arm and a leg) for a “bulkhead seat”"
Cons: "The service was beyond awful! The Flight Attendants had a “could care less” attitude. I had special ordered a meal, and they gave me the wrong one. I did not want to make a big deal, so I just ate it. Then they did not offer any beverages when the meal came! I literally had to beg them to make me their famous “Singapore sling”. Shocking really!!. When I had my coffee, my request for cream and sugar went ignored THREE times. Finally they grudgingly gave me only cream, rendering my coffee undrinkable. .....And the list goes on. Never ever will I travel on this horrid airline again!"
Pros: "Seats are big as old plane"
Cons: "Very old plane, entertainment system therefore very old too. Service was slow, 2 hours after start till they serve dinner, another 1 hour to clear. No special boarding for staralliance gold members"
Pros: "Satisfied and feel good on Singapore airlines, definitely will consider next trip"
Pros: "Quick boarding. Great entertainment system Good staff"
Cons: "Not comfortable seats"
Pros: "Service, staff, food, and comfort! Def the better Business class seats I've had. This was the A380 and, the first legwas a 770 but that was really great also. Awesome work Singapore Airlines"
Pros: "We loved the service, quality of food, entertainment, and cleanliness of Singapore Airlines flight!"
Cons: "Economy is still tightly packed with limited leg room considering the distance traveled."
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: "Very comfortable"
Cons: "I don’t see anything I didn’t like"
Pros: "Friendly crew I like that a lot. The diabetes food choice ecselent Thank you"

Cons: "Very slow service, took 2 hours. Entertainment system didn't worked for first half of flight."
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."
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."
Pros: "I've always flown Singapore airlines wherever possible. Standards are unbeatable until this flight..."
Cons: "The dinner was terrible. I am a long time customer of Singapore Airlines and I know where the standard are. The food on this flight was the worst I've seen. The starter (vermicelli) was overly salty, dry and severely undercooked. The main course was acceptable but the portion of chicken was more like side dish not main. Missing sides."
Pros: "food. schedule was on time"
Pros: "Classy cabin staff"
Pros: "Non stop to HK"
Cons: "Staff wake you up very aggressively when meal time. Other airlines leave stickers. This is a long flight, be respectful. Will avoid for future."

Cons: "Foods serving were too slow for economy class. Not enough selections for entertainment."
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."

Cons: "Crews are very nice, food are not really good"
Pros: "The hot towels twice during the flight was great"
Cons: "Really just the food"
Pros: "Crew was super nice. Amazed at collection of Chinese movies and music. Great alcoholic beverage selection."
Cons: "Hope that there were more time to order and enjoy beverages."
Pros: "Everything was smooth. Although we took of a little late but we landed as per schedule. Service was personalised! Great trip."
Cons: "They reschudle my flight beaucase I have anxiety. It's my birthday today. I'm suppose to be in China celebrating me and my grandma's birthday right now. Apparently anxiety is something that Singapore airline are very concerned about me, that needs a doctor note to prove that I'm okey to fly. poor coummcation skill and power play"
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Kids' meal didn't have fruits. No cellphone charger."
Pros: "Overall treatment of boarding & crew staff was courteous, friendly & helpful. Movies selections were great but I was too tired to watch."
Cons: "Food can be improved. Couldn't eat pork or shrimps, so wished they served either vegetarian or chicken noodles instead of pork or stuff with shrimps. Fish, chicken, beef, or vegetarian options are better options."
Cons: "Headphones were not functioning properly"
Pros: "Excellent experience as usual by SIA."

Pros: "Service is amazing! I loved that airplane had Christmas decorations on the walls and great choices of food and beverages."
Pros: "The ground staff in Sydney!"
Cons: "From the moment we checked in in Singapore there was no service. Having travelled first class and Economy before with Singapore I was very disappointed with Business class. My husband and daughter were in First Class. The service was below average to say the least - more training required from check in to on board - (in Sydney the staff on the ground went above and beyond) In Singapore it was very fake and contained no sincerity. The lounge itself was also ordinary compared to others, no Amenity kits or PJs in business class - even Virgin Australia has that! I was so excited to be travelling Singapore again given past experiences but now Im not sure I will want to fly them again."
Pros: "Amazing crew, great service. Really good food"
Pros: "Just as previous reviews mentioned, this is a top notch airline even when flying coach. The staff was courteous and attentive, the food was good and the flight overall was comfortable. I'd fly with Singapore again in a heartbeat."
Pros: "The crew were lovely - friendly and polite!"
Cons: "The delayed departure- but I truly understand that it was beyond the control of the company as the delay was weather related."

Pros: "Great entertainment"
Cons: "Overall great"

Cons: "No seat selection available on line, so stuffed in the back. No place for luggage. No soft drinks on flight. Mexican chips??? What’s that about?"
Pros: "The airline and staff appear to be friendly and efficient"
Cons: "Seating in economy is tight. You really cannot move without annoying the passengers on either side. This also makes eating difficult."
Cons: "You could have warned about the 2nd bag fee! I paid $80 for having a 2nd bag!"
Pros: "Flying Air NZ is a pleasure. You guys generally do a very good job. Even though the flight left late I was impressed with the Pilot announcement to allow connecting passengers to leave the plane first, and all others remain seated."
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. Check in at Auckland airport was very quick and highly automated, however, our gate was not posted till one hour before the flight, so we did not know where was the best place to sit and wait."
Cons: "Food was mediocre. Coffee and tea were like warm or cold."
Cons: "$80 baggage fees for luggage over 7 kg. I wasn’t aware of high price and luggage weight restriction until I was at airport"
Pros: "the staffs and the boarding experienve"
Pros: "Appreciated check in staff who professionally answered our requests re routine steps to process check in. Only regretted that we weren’t aware (perhaps we missed announcement) that my husband who is still recovering from knee surgery was not aware we could have boarded from the forward entrance and avoid the descent and ascent via rear entry."
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. My son had purchased my ticket and not bought luggage voucher. They helped me get online and buy voucher. Would recommend airline to anyone traveling in that part of world."
Cons: "It was a very positive experience. No complaints. I will definately fly Air New Zealand when that is an option."

Pros: "Crew solid n friendly enough"

Cons: "Bathroom did not work, food was not so tasty"
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."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff"
Cons: "No WiFi or outlets on aircraft"
Pros: "Flying over the country of NZ."
Cons: "Crying kids."

Pros: "Very friendly staff, speedy boarding, nice comments from the captain."
Pros: "I was very impressed by the entire experience. Boarding and disembarking at front and at rear of plane, good spacing between seats, cookies, entertainment options... and lovely flight crew. Thank you Air NZ!"
Cons: "Nothing I can think of. Very happy with the flight."
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: "A little cramped on the domestic flight, but for the hour or so from Christchurch to Auckland, it was acceptable. I was impressed that ANZ did a quick meal service on this short flight. The crew was great - very friendly and efficient."
Cons: "Close quarters between seats."
Pros: "Awesome in flight entertainment! Very corteous and polite crew!"
Cons: "Im midsized asian, i the seats are too small"
Pros: "We did not use the food or entertainment"
Pros: "Staff & aircraft were good."

Pros: "Things generally went well on this flight; you never know what you're going to get, and this was successful- all went well!"
Cons: "Wasn't all that bad!"
Pros: "VERY friendly and genuine!"
Cons: "Only one cookie-haha!"
Pros: "Unlike the American flights, they actually served a light snack (not pretzels and nuts) and offered complementary wine and beer. The ride was pleasant."
Cons: "For the economy passengers, we had to go down a flight of stairs onto the tarmac and then back up on a portable stairs to get onto the plane. The same was true when we were deboarding the plane. This has more to do with the airports than with Air New Zealand."
Pros: "Cabin crew was excellent"
Cons: "No complaints"

Cons: "Not much"
Pros: "Extra leg room at front of plane."
Cons: "Seats too narrow."

Pros: "short flight made seats less inportant"

Pros: "Everyone was very friendly and accommodating. Seats were comfortable and roomy. Food was delicious served by real professionals."
Crew kept on discussing about their holiday plans and places they visited not realizing that they are loud as they were talking across each side.

Pros: "Great business class"
Pros: "Friendly quality staff, good aircraft."
Pros: "Amazing seats and crew"

Pros: "Like the cabin crew... comfortable seat in the business class"
Pros: "Information from the captain"

Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Comfortable seat, good service and food, and a very comprehensive on board entertainment selection."
Cons: "A lot of background noise when using the supplied headphones"
Pros: "The flight was incredibly comfortable, and Emirates reputation is well warranted. Service was impeccable and food was great. Seats were great, especially in business."
Cons: "Overall business class was great, however I didn’t like the placement of the remote at my left shoulder. I hit rabdom buttons a few times and it changed the channels and I would have to re-search for the movie I was watching. Everything else was absolutely perfect."
Pros: "Good everything"
Cons: "The business class section was very run down, old and dirty looking."
Pros: "Ease of checkin"
Cons: "Delayed take off Delayed baggage retrieval’s"
Pros: "This was operated by Qantas. Nice movie/music setup. Crew friendly"

Pros: "Very good it's the best. Ik"
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."
Cons: "We are vegetarians (not vegan). I wasn't keen on the chicken/fish option. But I didn't complain."
Pros: "Good food, pretty nice staff. Entertainment options were plentiful too. Seats were fine also."
Cons: "Delayed flight with little or no apology. Lots of waiting and an attitude of - this is just how it is. That's true, but information goes a long way to smooth delay situations. Emirates failed at this."
Cons: "Headphone was taken by crew the moment plane landed."
Pros: "Really comfortable, good service."

Pros: "I requested a blanket for my Son and was told there was none available....."

Cons: "I was not allowed onto this flight (Dubai to Hong Kong) because my previous flight (London to Dubai) was a little late, but I made it to the gate before it was closed. My fellow passengers from my flight were also not allowed onto the plane, and while we were arguing (including being told that the plane was full) other passengers from an even later flight were allowed on board! Instead I had to wait many hours in the terminal (because apparently there were no hotel rooms available!?) to get a flight to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia (!!!?) where I could get a Cathay flight to Hong Kong. This meant I arrived 14 hours later than scheduled. Absolutely abysmal service, with no sympathy and no responsibility from any employees."
Pros: "They randomly upgraded to business and it was by far the best long courier flight I've been on."
Pros: "Service, food and entertainment"
Pros: "Emirates is always excellent however the crew were not very engaging"
Pros: "Staff, Service, plane, food. Everything"
Cons: "I can't say a word against them."
Pros: "Fantastic service all around"
Cons: "Seat could have a more comfortable bottom and IFE was a bit dated"
No music available on screen
the 24 hour delay wasn't Qantas' best performance but it wasn't a big hassle for us
Flight was great, and the crew was outstanding. The check in process in Brisbane was frustrating. Very few staff, long wait, and ridiculous process for the bag check. We were not the only ones frustrated. The system could definitely use improvement. We love this airline overall, and truly - this was our only complaint.
Cons: "Airlines waste a lot of time and money preparing food that is mediocre at best. Just offering simple orange juice , tea coffee and a muffin to keep people going would be better as it's such a short flight."

Pros: "Crew was very good"

Pros: "The seats are comfortable and the service is first rate. Best airline out of Virgin Australia, Air New Zealand, and Qantas based on my 3 trips to New Zealand"
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."

Pros: "Fantastic service"
Cons: "Boarding gate was like queuing for a sporting event"
Pros: "Plane, when I boarded, at least in Coach, smelled like vendors hot-dog water. Took an hour and a half to be offered a drink of anything other than a bottle water. By the end of the flight, trash in the aisles, lavatories were nasty."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Food was better than expected. Appreciate the multiple snacks in the middle of the flight. Appreciated the 2nd cup of coffee in the morning. The crew serving the food had excellent customer service skills. The movies listed on the website were different than the actual flight. I really wanted to see a couple that weren't available."
Cons: "There wasn't anything that was disappointing that stands out to me."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by one hour. Because I had to collect my carry-on bag, I missed my connection by 8 minutes. I was re-booked on another flight and was five hours late getting home"

Cons: "The menu said we would get a weiss bar (amazingly delicious mango ice cream) on the menu and we didn't get one!"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Angle lie seats. Controls for seating and entertainment fidgety"
Pros: "Was bumped off fjight. Due to not being checked in by Jetstar. Crew was nice and put us on a later Hawaiian."
Pros: "Better than expected selection of movies"
Cons: "Food was terrible and crew service was average Dinner - chicken salad that was soggy and barely edible and a bread roll, no butter and nothing else. Food was better on Bangkok Air 1 hour flight. Breakfast, a pastry in a box and a muffin on a serviette. No fruit or yogurt ... nothing else. awful Couple of times crew were rude to other passengers (not myself) but generally were not as happy, helpful as previous Qantas flights Smaller plane with less seatroom than my Emirates flight in the other direction"

Cons: "They didn't have as big of a selection of movies on their smaller plane."
Pros: "Staff were super accommodating and friendly. Best pillow I've had on a flight. Blankets were nice as well."
Cons: "Seats didn't accommodate my broad shoulders well. Seats seemed tighter than ones I've flow long distance on before ie. Iceland Air, New Zealand Air, and Emirates. Head phone jack is inside the seat arm rest which made it awkward when adjusting. No standard head phone jack but a converter is provided."
Pros: "Good food great service nice and friendly staff"
Pros: "Nothing to be honest.."
Cons: "food was pathetic, served late, i have always found the Qantas crew to be rude. No change to that. Somethings dont change. this is one of them. I first flew w Qantas in 2005 in business class, and since then i have downgraded. But the attitude hasn't changed. It's as if we are doing service by choosing Qantas...."
Pros: "movie selection"

Pros: "Friendly crew members. Departure time & arrival times were very accurate. Luggage was handled properly."

Pros: "Fast self checkin"
Cons: "Entertainment screen doesn't work. Plane is freezing cold. Crew was very rude and ignores my requests. Never come when ask for service and completely ignores my first request of an extra blanket if possible. Never comeback to let me know if they have one or not and I was freezing to sick. I have to walk to the back of the plane to find someone to bring me a blanket. Yet he tries to cast me off by lying that he could not find one. When he realize that I really need one he said I can take one from empty seat if I can find any. But after me finding a blanket of another color on one of the empty seat he take it away rudely saying that it is "not for you". Come on I wouldn't take it if no one cares about me freezing and he finally bring me a blanket. And the crew was very unfriendly to me the entire time. When I tried to lay down a little, somehow it surprised the passenger who is behind me, the crew make such a scene that ask me outloud "be careful when moving your seat" well I did. Basically they make no efford to care about anything about me but are super nice to the people who's is behind me who are white and elder. Such obviously discrimination that I cannot tolerant. I have been having frequent international travel for the past 7 years and this is the first time I have such unpleasant experience. I do not recommend this company to anyone. be warned."

Pros: "The flight from vancouver to taipei was great. The plane is top notch. Free food and drink. It's great. Seats are comfy and very roomy"
Cons: "The flight from taipei to bali was terrible. I had to switch seats because I was too tall for the window seat. Theres no leg room and the seats are very narrow. I am not a huge guy, 6'3" and 235lbs very uncomfortable. Also the TV only worked half the time"
