Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "The aircraft was very cold and chilly."
Cons: "Rather long wait at business check-in, friendliness there ok, on board service slow with the champagne, old aircraft with old configuration of seats, nothing really bad, but it's not like this that you win an airline of the year award!"
Pros: "They passed by me when they served the meals because they thought I had it already which it was someone behind me who got his meal since he had a special meal request. So I ended up to talk to them that I haven’t had my meal yet. It was embarrassing moment for me. They seemed thinking that I lied to them."
Cons: "They are well trained crews so I have no better ideas about improvements"
Cons: "We missed the smile and quality service liked before. Food quality is just okay. Timeliness for departure/arrival was excellent."
Cons: "The seat covers looked worn and dirty. Needs an upgrade."

Pros: "Entertainment system ok"
Cons: "Change if gate 30 minutes before departure and no info at old gate. New gate very far away, terrible for old people."
Cons: "Cramped seats, no leg room, horrible food, stupid COLD snack!"
Pros: "Boarding went smoothly, crew extremely curtious and helpful."
Cons: "Plane was an older model and I did not have strength to recline seat. Quality of seat back screens poor and hand sets difficult to navigate for a technophobe like Ma."
Pros: "Great service and attentiveness with great food and entertainment, including a nice big comfortable seat!"
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: "Singapore Airlines delivers as always. Friendly crew and clean and well maintained aircraft."
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: "Top notch service. Very comfortable in business class. Very attentive. Would definitely fly with them again."
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours behind schedule"
Pros: "The flight attendants were amazing."
Pros: "business seats were excellent"
Cons: "all was good"
Pros: "The A380 is an amazing plane. The flight was smooth and the engine sounds were fairly low."
Cons: "Waiting on line to check in was more than a half hour although there were probably only 10 people ahead of me. Got a hard time on the weight of my carry-on being more than 7kg although I had to point out that my ticket allowed me two bags that were 23kg each - I had nothing to check. Eventually, when I pointed out that I could wear enough of the clothes from the carry on, they agreed to let me take it on. On board, the service was cold, bland and infrequent. The entertainment system lost sound perhaps 20 minutes into the flight."
Pros: "Efficient courteous and attractive crew. Good food drink selection and great entertainment system."
Cons: "Unfortunately the plane was an older 777-200 with smaller TV screens but otherwise fine."
Pros: "Entertainment service is, really, second to none."
Cons: "Old plane, cramped seats, wrong tissue paper (unusabke) in bathrooms, instead of paper towels, unremarkable food, served almost cold, rushed staff which spilled water on me (offered S$75 voucher as compensation), however did not take thebtime to listen to requests from passengers who spoke poor English, etc."
Pros: "Everything great personnel"
Pros: "The service, seats, food, drinks and bed!"
Pros: "Reasonable price"
Cons: "Missed flight for medical reasons with 9 month old son, attempted to use remaining onward flight to Europe and return through Swiss which was refused! Most unreasonable, cheating me of my payment. I have since sought legal advice and contacted travel agent regarding, seems case law from several instances in my support. I had to pay thousands for new flight Austrian Air. Swiss thieved my money and I dont mind saying so. Unfair and unfair conduct. I am saving this letter for twitter to tell my friends of my disgust. I will be happy if this is sorted refunded immediately. A copy of these details and medical letter already provided to Jithendra from flight network (online travel agent)."
Pros: "The crew was very kind and helpful."
Cons: "My daughter had the vegetarian oriental - and it was basically a ball of slim. My son had the lactose free meal and it was broccoli and potatoes. We switched our return flight meals to the regular in-flight meal. It was better, but not great."
Cons: "Headphones were not functioning properly"
Pros: "The seat comes with foot rest attached to the front seat."
Cons: "I asked for decaf coffee and the attendant totally forgot about my request."
Pros: "My partner had a bad leg and the staff were very attentive and helpful in making her as comfortable as possible with extra pillows and getting ice for her ice pack."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable and I couldn't sleep without getting a really stiff neck. The vegetarian oriental meal was bee hoon with vegetables but the amount of vegetables were a lot more than the bee hoon thus making the meal less than filling and satisfying."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "spicy chicken too spicy!"
Pros: "As usual, plane is in good shape and crew are well trained. Nothing wrong with all the basics, but Singapore Air has definitely lost its lustre."
Cons: "For heaven's sake, please don't announce a boarding procedure and then not follow it. If you want to have a free-for-all rugby scrum to get on the plane, so be it. But don't announce boarding by rows/groups and then not make even a lame attempt to adhere to it."
Cons: "old plane, boarding ramp smelled musty, food not nice, entertainment system was old not touch screen, male crew not patient with passengers, drinks stingy(split a can of soda with other passengers, and gave you a 1/4 cup). When asked for more OJ with breakfast was told they would come back later(mouth was very dry due to the air). Not impressed as we paid good money for the ticket with the poor service"
Pros: "Before booking my flight on Singapore airlines, I took the time to read through some reviews and to be honest, the reviews left by previous passengers did not do the airlines any justice. I rarely, if at all, leave any reviews myself but my flights (from SFO - Singapore and vice versa) were AMAZING! I was sitting in economy and the level of attentiveness that we received, I could only imagine how great first class could be. if i could fly Singapore on all my trips overseas I would."
Pros: "I am still trying to find my bags. I missed my connection and Jet Blue made me stand in a line to get rebooked for 7 hours. Unprofessional, uncaring. None of this was my fault but everyone who represents Jet Blue treated me as if it were. Never again"
Pros: "got us there, efficient and effective crew."
Pros: "We love travelling Singapore Airlines and always try to travel with them if we can"
Pros: "The food. The nice crew members. The comfortability and service. The tech and entertainment available."
Pros: "On time departure and take off. Smooth landing."
Pros: "The stewardesses were extremely professional- attentive & pleasant. The toilet was well equipped. There was no delay in taking off Boarding was orderly & efficient & quick and so was disembarking. The snacks were nice- ice cream, apples, chops, sandwiches. Many other airlines don't even provide snacks on these long flights. The seats in wconomy were roomy & confortable."
Cons: "I can't think of anything that was bad but I didn't enjoy the breakfast. I would have preferred an American breakfast. It was a mixture of shrimp, potato & brocolli. Ivwould have pregerred a criossant & yogurt to the tiramisu & roll."
