Pros: "the ANA folks at the departure check-in went out of their way to get me on my flight. You see, I got to the airport right before boarding. Their response?

Pros: "Staff were very helpful and very foamy and comfortable seat"

Pros: "The flight attendants on my ANA flight from Beijing to Tokyo were the most pleasant group of people I’ve seen for a long time."
Pros: "The food, choices of entertainment, and the crew"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The crew were helpful, attentive and nice. There were vacant seats so i was able to change to a more comfortable seat."
Cons: "The food was horrible. The selections for movies is quite limited."
Pros: "I traveled with my wife and twin sons who turned two last month. It was our first time to fly with the boys, and we were nervous about the flight for this reason. Thanks to ANA's staff both on the ground and in the air, everything went very smoothly. When we arrived at Haneda Airport (around 1:30pm), we went to the Special Assistance counter to get a stroller. The staff was friendly and patient, and didn't rush us at all. (It took a little while to get our things in order.) I was surprised to learn that we could check in from there, drop off our checked luggage and receive boarding passes, as well as an airport stroller. In addition, the boy who was awake at the time received an ANA airplane clip. We didn't get to the gate in time for pre-boarding. I was dismayed to find out that we'd have to take a bus to the aircraft. We had the maximum number of carry-on bags, plus two babies, only one of whom was in a carrier, and we learned that the stroller couldn't go on the bus. A gate agent brought our carry-ons onto the bus. She found priority seats for us and a place nearby to fit a bag that couldn't fit on one of our laps. On board, the cabin attendants were attentive and friendly, and gave toys to the boys. When we arrived at Hagi-Iwami Airport, two of them even carried all of our carry-on bags off the plane for us. (They also helped with our carry-on luggage upon returning to Tokyo. In fact, we had forgotten to reserve a stroller for when we deplaned, and a flight attendant tried to find one near the gate, to no avail.) When I think about all the positive experiences we had in a span of about three and a half hours, I am amazed at all the different people who helped to make our journey easier. I cannot imagine it happening in my home country or on most airlines I have flown."
Cons: "Only the fact that we had to take a bus to the aircraft at Haneda, but the gate agents made it very easy for us."
Pros: "Service, Cleanliness and Overall Quality"
Cons: "Seats could be better"
Pros: "I liked the way the pilot talked to us and let us know what was going on and still got us there on time even though our departure was slightly delayed."
Cons: "There had to be something better than pretzels."
Pros: "Service and crew were good, very kind and accommodating!"
Cons: "The layover at Narita airport was rather short to do some duty free shopping to bring home to U.S."
Pros: "Friendly crew... awesome entertainment. Good drinks and food, one of the best traveling experiences I had. Thank you!"
Cons: "Same repeating music"
Pros: "The seat was nice"
Cons: "Service was extremely slow, it took almost two hours just to get offered a drink. There wasn't any offering after boarding and I had to ask just to get water. The food was quite bad, normally I would choose the Japanese meal, however, both the Japanese and International options were poor. The staff seemed unorganized and did not follow a set protocol."
Pros: "After some considerable panic at losing my long confirmed seat assignment as a result of weather problems in Tokyo, the doors ended up closing with at least 20 empty seats in coach. (Boeing 777-300)"
Cons: "Although it is served with care, the food on ANA (in coach) ends up being a bit too Japanese. I understand this carrier needs to cater to a broad cultural and geographic audience, but I think they make it too complicated. Giving meal service a decidedly Japanese angle results in main courses that are mush, and sides that are OK. Good yogurt, decent fruit, delicately prepared salads, delicious cookies and hagen daz are pretty simple and make the meals fun. (especially since chop sticks are always included), but the ovens turn the main courses into a stinky and kinda nasty thing. I wish they would simplify."
Pros: "Great service and crew. Boarding was quick and efficient."
Cons: "No personal inflight entertainment, but it wasn’t an issue with such a short flight from Sapporo to Tokyo."
Cons: "The food was not as good as in my previous flights."
Cons: "19 hours overlay in ORD. I had to check out all luggages again. Terrible."
Pros: "Good food, seats were comfy enough for a 4.5-hr flight."
Cons: "Better Hollywood options for entertainment."
Pros: "Attentive, very prompt when I indicated that there was condensation drip from the cabin roof. Vegan/vegetarian food was well prepared and staff were very knowledgeable with food choices and options."
Pros: "Staff are super kind."
Cons: "---"
Pros: "Solid service, high level of comfort and an overall rewarding experience. I am quite satisfied with Ana and am looking forward to flying with them again next year."
Pros: "Food and entertainment is great."
Cons: "The plane was a bit old, no bidet in the bathroom (the newer planes has it)"
Cons: "Connecting flight from Narita to Washington. Please consider giving enough time for passenger to check in. Security line is so long and very slow."
Pros: "Staff was pleasant, food was good, decent movies overall."
Cons: "Cramped for average size American man. 5'10", can't imagine being 6' 2" or taller flying coach."
Pros: "Seat was good and slept like a baby"
Cons: "Nothing really, slept the whole way"
Pros: "The friendliness of the crews and the cleanliness of the rest rooms."
Cons: "The delay before taking off."
Pros: "Generous for portions. Crew were awesome. The interface was easy and had lots of options"
Cons: "Main food dish was combinations of flavors I would never put together. Lack of leg room."
Pros: "They had a lot of Great Movies! I was able to catch up with Kong, James Bond, The Great Wall and much, much more!"
Pros: "Polite attendants"
Cons: "small leg room......"
Pros: "Efficient and uneventful"
Pros: "One of the best inflight meals. They serve snacks on top of main meal."
Cons: "The shuttle bus to the plane was crowded. Limited movie options."
Pros: "Aircraft was new and spacious"
Cons: "Crew forgot to ask us for drinks upon serving us meals. I also had to repeat my order 3 times."
Pros: "Service was amazing."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "The food and disipline on boarding the passangers according to their classes"
Pros: "Compared to different american airlines, this flight was great. Decent meals, decent movies, all around good."
Pros: "The crew were very helpful and the food was amazing. Entertainment was also very good daughter loved it"
Pros: "The icecream"
Cons: "There was only one choice of meal left when they gave it to me:("

I was very disappointed to find out when I tried to pre-pay that because I bought my ticket from you I wasn’t not allowed to pre-pay for my excess luggage that would save 20% . Also, AS airlines gave me the seat which was not reclining. I was very disappointed

.

Tight space, No onboard entertainment, food served not so appetizing. There are other $food$ choices but you have to pay extra.

Check in took a long time although I had already checked in via app; it took a long time to board; Seats we’re not comfortable; The way food was served was very weird and unpleasant since some people were served first even when we were sitting next to each other. Food was awful! Flight attendants were not very attentive.

Was very comfortable and enjoyable, can't think of anything else to improve - thank you.

Got me to the destination, long delayed.

Good service

Pros: "Amazing as always"

Both flights SIN<-->MAN had very cold cabins. Why does it have to be very cold?

Pros: "Three of us were sitting separately. Airline is able to accommodate us so that we get to sit together in a section where there is extra leg room."
Pros: "I loved that the airline offered several meals, snack options and drinks. The attendants were amazing and would highly recommend Singapore airlines to anyone flying internationally"
Cons: "The limited arm room/personal space. Not much leg room in economy for a 10 hour flight. Would be nice if airlines would decrease the number of seats and give a little more room so people aren’t hitting each other in the head with their arms"
Pros: "Crew very attentive but not intrusive. Food very good."
Cons: "I did not find much to watch on entertainment system. Have to get crew to assemble flat bed, a bit of a nuisance. Also to turn it back into a chair."
Pros: "They were very generous with food and drinks. It was a pleasant flight."
Cons: "Our seats were uncomfortable. We did not like sitting on the front row three deep. We would have preferred the extra legroom seats we had on the 1st flight"
Pros: "I always like Singapore Airlines. They should continue to be the best."
Cons: "Some flexibility to select food choices even if we book the flight in short notice."
Pros: "Cabin crew was amazing!"
Cons: "Food was mediocre and we've had better on Singapore Airlines before."
Pros: "crew handled the tough crowd well, but were not extremely hospitable"
Cons: "food was disgusting"
Pros: "All Crew members was friendly seats i found comfortable."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. seats were comfortable. The seats will be super comfortable, if there are more leg space."
Pros: "Seats with entertainment"
Cons: "Reservation online"
Cons: "Flight way too cold"
Pros: "The crew werr very helpful and patient and so many languages they knew. Impressive they need a raise"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable I slept 30 min at a time on my 14hr flight. The food is nice but a bit bland the first time its amazing but after more than 2 planes mix it up plz"
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: "Basics are covered. TV screen is big but otherwise nothing special."
Cons: "It is so annoying they want you to pay an extra $20 to pre book any seat. If you need the extra $20 that much, charge me in the original fare! Don't nickel and dime me. At check in they couldn't even get my child seated beside me although a change was made last minute at the gate. Every other airline I've flown recently was better. Sri Lankan and Emirates FAR better service."
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 instead...international 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: "Friendly Staff. Very nice Meet and Greet Comfortable travel. Meals were tasty."
Pros: "The Staff was very friendly."
Pros: "Brand new aircraft, excellent service and food"
Cons: "J class seat, 12A window. Top of my seat curled around my sides, which blocked vision thru 1.5 of the 3 windows I had access to. The enclosure also protuded into my left bicep when I had my elbow resting on the arm rest. Table on my right hand side was too close to my body, and to high to reach a drink easily, I literally had to lift my whole right arm to pick up a glass."
Pros: "crew very helpful with seating service on board also good"
Cons: "head phones for entertainment very uncomfortable Food not to my taste"
Cons: "No entertaining at all, only old movies. The seats are very tight. There was a guy snoring during the flight keeping everybody awake. The breakfast was mediocre, just a a bun with fruit"
Pros: "We love Singapore Airlines, seriously it's not hard, you just have staff that care, clean comfortable air craft, good inflight entertainment. Are you listening American and British Airways?"
Cons: "Please move this service to DFW and displace the rubbish transatlantic service that is there"
Cons: "Because the flight from IAD to London was cancelled, I never made it to this flight."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My flight was delayed by 2 hours so I missed my connecting flight in Singapore. There was a huge queue of people who missed their connecting flight cos of an accident in the runway. The airline did nothing to prepare for this situation. It took hours to get another flight organised, communication was non existent and refreshments took ages to come. Airline didn't help with finding a hotel for stranded passengers."
Pros: "This time I made the mistake of flying with my kids (4 and 6). The flight or them was last minute (booked less than 8 hours before take off) so there were no pre-planned kids meals etc. The in cabin team were awesome! They made sure they go a choice of meals, that they had things to do, that they were enjoying the flights. This on top of the usual awesome that they have."
Cons: "It's still in Huston. Flying economy isn't the same as flying business but my bank account says I need the cheaper option. Can we please move this flight to DFW instead? :-)"
Pros: "More movies and TV than you can watch, incredible cabin team, low cost, I mean, what's not to like. American, are you listening?!?"
Cons: "I have to drive from DFW to IAH, I wish Singapore would take over from American and British Air at DFW, honestly Singapore is cheaper, better service, nicer ground and in flight teams. It's worth the extra drive to travel with people that actually care"
Pros: "Excellent crew services"
Cons: "Entertainment system is rather tired for today’s standard for first tier airlines, in particular the headphone jacks which may not work from wear & tear. It’s a hit & miss whether the sound works or not. Obviously mine didn’t on one side this time. Very frustrating if you are on a long flight and there’s nothing you can do if the flight is full."
Pros: "Finally an airline that loads from the back to the front. Makes sense to me"
Pros: "food. schedule was on time"
Pros: "The attendants are pleasant to the eye, thats about it."
Cons: "I heard so many good things and was left disappointed. The service from staff try to help and be nice but some of them do not care at all, things like too busy to bring a beverage etc was a tad annoying. dont know if i will use them again"
Pros: "Foot rest, large movie screen, good food"
Cons: "They ran out of diet drinks."
Pros: "Crew service"
Cons: "Very old entertainment system. Poor screen visibility. Cramped"
Pros: "The presence and attitude of the flight attendants were highly pleasant and accommodating. The entire flight was very comfortable and made the 9 hour journey from Manchester to Houston Texas fast and enjoyable. The flight attendants always had a wonderful smile which felt genuine many a time and always made an effort to speak at the level of the passenger. When I had trouble connecting to the Wifi, one attendant even knelt down and connected my phone manually as I was not tech savvy in this regard. The food was of much higher quality as well compared to other airlines I traveled with on this trip."
Cons: "Really the only issue was there was a 2 hour delay on departure, however this was due to issues out of control of the airline and I did not mind as the airline's ambience and my experience with it overshadowed any delays."
Pros: "The on-board crew was polite and humble. Food served was delicious and the flight reached on time."
Cons: "The flight was quite old, was a bit surprised as the route seems very busy. Our seat 36J and K interestingly had no windows. First time flew on a flight with no window row."
Pros: "Seats!!"
Cons: "Not enough vegetarian options. Food not that great for business class. Not enough English new release movies. Many were old. Could be improved."
Pros: "The entrainment was amazing!"
Cons: "Seats were a little cramped"
Pros: "Awesome comfort, infotainment, service and food. Was amazed at the value for an economy flight - much better than BA & United in every way."
Pros: "Loved the crew. Really helpful."
Cons: "1) while boarding you should keep families with kids (at least till 6yrs of age or with disabilities) prior to other people... 2) food was ok ok"
Pros: "Cabin crew are always great"
Cons: "Cabin fitout is getting tired and dated. Etihad leaves it for dead in first class"
Pros: "Everything is suport wonderful"
Cons: "Price. it's better"
Pros: "Swap my two reviews! This one is for the flight going to London when I had the Skycouch! That was fabulous."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "All great, except limited entertainment and wifi was n.a."
Cons: "Wifi, I was on replacement aircraft and no wifi for the whole flight"
Cons: "Terrible service and all around outcome. Would not fly Air New Zealand again"
Pros: "The crew was polite, efficient and prompt"
Cons: "The food quality needs improvement!"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "More food would have been better"
Pros: "Air NZ sent my mom away when she arrived to board the plane because she could not hear well. This resulted in a 68 year old women spending the night at Heathrow. No apologies, no upgrades, nothing. Air New Zealand is a heartless discount airline. Terrible experience. Avoid."
Cons: "Air NZ sent my mom away when she arrived to board the plane because she could not hear well. This resulted in a 68 year old women spending the night at Heathrow. No apologies, no upgrades, nothing. Air New Zealand is a heartless discount airline. Terrible experience. Avoid."
Pros: "Easy flight."
Cons: "They have to provide better food."
Pros: "Great crew, great food, spacious and nice. Great experience overall."
Pros: "The plane, seat, food, amenities, staff, etc were all world class"
Cons: "LAX immigration is a nightmare but not NZ fault."
Cons: "Seats, food, entertainment"
Pros: "Checking in, bag drop, and boarding were all super fast and easy. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "Comfortable seat."
Cons: "Ran out of meal options, flight was delayed so one option breakfast not appropriate at midday. The flight attendant blamed the person in front of me for taking the last other option. I had to clarify with her that meant there was only one option left. She seemed annoyed at me for asking."
Pros: "I liked that there was food available and that they offered complimentary snacks and drinks. Some of the crew members were nice and offered good service. I liked that they offered some type of entertainment and free wifi."
Cons: "I didn't like that some of the crew members were not very nice. I also disliked that some of the crew members drove the food/beverage cart violently through the isles and saw as one of the crew members rammed into another person's leg, to only say "oh sorry" and kept on going. This same crew member missed picking up the trash from an entire row and was throwing trash on the floor. She was more interested in caring for a baby on board (not sure if it was her daughter or family member) than the rest of the passengers. I also didn't like the seats were so close to each other, the person in front of me almost hit my face when he reclined his seat all the way back. There wasn't much room to breath let alone stretch."
Pros: "Everything; crew, seats, food, The best flight ever. Thanks a lot."
Cons: "N / A"
Pros: "Excellent movies available. Decent food, regular water service, and pleasant staff. Will definitely look to fly Air New Zealand again."
Cons: "Not enough legroom. But I'm 6'2, so it's the same on all airlines."
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "We made it to Christchurch safely and on time."
Cons: "We were charged $120 per checked bag. We couldn’t check in online, so we couldn’t pre-pay at the lower rate. Felt a lot like fraud, honestly."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and the informati N at the gate kept changing. Regular announcements that we would board in 10 Minutes. And hen we didn’t and then another announcement of 10 minutes etc Process was confusing. Four different lines with signage that was too low to be seen by anyone except those who were up front. Employees were flustered and having arguments on phone in presence of those boarding. Led to more chaos and uneasiness"
Cons: "Upon arrival we were informed that each checked bag was $60. This was news to us. The NZ flight employee informed us that Air NZ informed us quite well of this info, this the booking agent was at fault."
Pros: "Veer smooth ride. Very nice crew. Great service"
Pros: "I got there on time"
Cons: "Staff not incredibly nice but OK. The thing that bothered me most is that if you book through KAYAK that sends you to Virgin Australia, you can’t book bag, nor buy a meal if you want. I didn’t want to meal but I did want a bag and it’s a big difference. If you do it online it’s 39 Australian dollars, but if you do it at the airport it’s AU$160. That’s just outrageous and the staff was not helpful at all"
Pros: "Good flight. Good crew. An overall good experience"
Pros: "Booked these flights though Kayak. Landing from LAX at 0730 at Auckland international terminal and then departing at 0900 from the domestic terminal. This is not enough time, doesn’t allow for customs and immigration. It was a really stressful experience running between terminals with my luggage, as there was less than a 1 hour window after getting through customs and immigration, so the bag drop at international wouldn’t accept them. Got to departure gate 12 minutes before plane departure. You need more time to have a good experience !"
Cons: "Not enough time booked by kayak between an international arrival and domestic departure"
Pros: "good entertainment"
Cons: "we purchased a sky couch for an extra $700 and was not put in a skycouch row. I have contacted Air New Zealand and have yet to hear back from them."
Pros: "Nothing really. Smooth boarding.on time departure"
Cons: "Passengers with more than one bag as hand luggage"
Pros: "Great customer service, from boarding to disembarking. Great care for comfort and needs."
Cons: "Selection of video options on the app entertainment systems."
Pros: "The service is great as well as the food!"
Pros: "The boarding and on-board service were excellent. Enough free-of-charge entertainment to keep me occupied during the 3-hour flight between SYD and CHC. Plenty of room for carry-on luggage."
Cons: "Felt like I was flying a US carrier - very little room between the rows. I was surprised by this, as I thought that non-US carriers generally don’t pack their planes. I was surprised, but not inconvenienced by this, since it was a morning flight and only 3 hours gate-to-gate."
Cons: "Paid for business class so I could Relax and sleep on the 10+ hour flight. Unfortunately, I was in seat 1G which was adjacent to the galley and storage compartments for the flight crew. Literally, every 15 minutes, someone in the flight crew was bumping my seat/bed - and waking me up. Never once got an apology. So pissed off I paid extra for business class when I would've gotten more sleep in a middle seat in coach."
Cons: "The middle seats need to go back to 3 not 4. It would have made it a much more comfortable flight(since it was a non stop from Heathrow to LA)."
Pros: "smooth flight, good treats, great legroom and fun crew!"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Comfortable, easy flight."
Cons: "Ground crew not as friendly and helpful as is ANZ standard. Bag check-in is not more efficient. It's a pain for passengers."
Pros: "Customer service and Food was excellent!"
Cons: "Delayed by 45 minutes"
Pros: "Service was great, kids were comfortable entertained and I loved the movie selection."
Cons: "Food wasn't good but that is low priority for me"
Pros: "How caring and involved the flight crew made everyone comfortable during the long haul."
Cons: "Hard to find anything that was wrong with my flight"
Pros: "Crew, ground and flight crew, were all so friendly and accommodating. Great access to free snacks/drinks, but the best was the seats with the footrests that lift all the way up to form a couch, even for those of us who aren't able to fly business class, but are frequent flyers."
Cons: "The video system wasn't as good as say, Virgin or B.A., but it's such a small issue, compared to the superior comfort of coach in Air New Zealand to the other steerage-like coach classes."
Pros: "Enjoyed gluten free meal enjoyed inflight entertainment"
Cons: "a little squashed in seating"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "No wifi. Limited entertainment. Seats not comfortable. Food was basic."
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "flight was seriously delayed, poor communication from staff & NZ Air app to travelers re reason for & how long delay would actually be. Shortly after we finally boarded I got a text saying our connecting flight from Christchurch to Dunedin was cancelled. So, we were flown to Christchurch & given hotel accommodations for the night, only to be flown BACK the next day to Wellington to catch a flight to Dunedin. All in all quite infuriating."
Pros: "Airport was easy to get to and the flight was very smooth and comfortable on a twin engine plane that is quite modern (noise level very minimal even though it is a propeller plane). Air New Zealand attendants were super friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Handsome, kind and efficient crew. Good amount of space in and around my seat. I was not cramped, although I was in the economy section. The plane interior was indeed nice. Power outlets (both USB and 110V DC) in my seat (I assume then, every seat had that). I fly few times a year between the West Coast and Europe and my overall flight experience on this flight I think was the best one I've seen in years. Food, quality and selection was good. Nice wines in economy. Sufficient number of clean, sufficiently roomy and well stocked toilets. The fare rate I was able to get was outstanding and contributed to the overall satisfaction. Even my neighbor, in the seat next to me was very polite, quiet and pleasure to travel with (though here New Zealand Air perhaps had less of an influence)."
Pros: "The entertainment was great, crew is always very friedly and great with kids. They are always on time and very helpul. I always look for Air Newzealand before I fly!"
Cons: "Nothing:)"
Pros: "I liked the video console. Loved the wine. Everything was great."
Cons: "Wish all seats in economy could have a footrest. Sleeping on a long flight is very uncomfortable without one."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and adjustable with tons of legroom. There was a bottle of water at our seat when we arrived, real pillows, and no more than two seats side by side. Bean bags to rest your feet on was a great touch."
Cons: "Touch screen system on entertainment system was very sluggish and unresponsive"
Pros: "Comfort, cleanless, crew availaibility."
Pros: "Crew was helpful and professional."
Cons: "Seats are unbelievably cramped. Not enough legroom or cargo room under the seats. It seems they put more seats in than the aircraft was meant to have. Made experience of 10 hour flight much more difficult."

My flight was canceled

Cons: "Attitude of some of the cabin crew very bad. Service was poor and with short comings. With Emirates either the service is very good or very bad. They need to get rid of the dead wood!"
Cons: "I wish the 777 had slightly wider seats like the A380"
Pros: "Fast boarding, on time, movies."
Cons: "Softer seats. Better food. Seat parents with their screaming babies and children in the back of the plabe!!!"
Pros: "Plane was large and comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic and confusing."
Pros: "Kind and very helpful."
Cons: "A little more room for people with weak legs."
Pros: "Seat was fine for size of plane and comfortable for a night flight. Food was flavoursome and nice."
Cons: "Had a problem with the two socket headphone Jack as it was not seating correctly so only got sound out of one ear mostly"
Pros: "Great food & great entertainment. Love the free WiFi"
Cons: "Looks like Emirates uses really old planes for this leg. The recliners were not working."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Everything was nice.."
Cons: "None..."
Pros: "Overall a decent flight."
Cons: "Didn’t like the boarding experience. You have somebody look at the boarding pass but then they sent us to a waiting area. The waiting/boarding area didn’t have space to make nice lines fir boarding so it was pretty haphazardly organized. You really can do better."
Pros: "Fast and easy"
Cons: "We didn't get to fly from SYDNEY to CHRISTCHURCH when we were supposed to!"
Pros: "the seats, the window"
Cons: "fliglth to short"
Pros: "Friendly staff at boarding and on flight. Very attentive."
Cons: "Food was not as nice as other airlines and my 11 yo daughter was only provided normal adult meal. For full service airline actually went thirsty - constant water should be a given."
Cons: "I cant cause im still at quantos waiting for them to find my god damn bags!"
Pros: "Every thing is very good"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "The boarding and immigration process was smooth and trouble free"
Cons: "Leg space was inadequate for an international flight."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Pros: "The flight certainly lived up to its reputation as being one of the nicest airlines to fly, even in being in economy. Great service, great food, great on board entertainment."
Cons: "There was an incident prior to take off where a passenger in first class had to be removed from the plane. Though it’s certainly not the airlines fault that there was an issue with a passenger, they should’ve been a lot more transparent and gave us a lot more information on what exactly was going on other then “we need to go back to a special area to get this passenger off.” Couple that with the security checks to “make sure there is nothing on the plane that shouldn’t be” and very little explanation of what actually occurred, it made for a very stressful flight. Not knowing if this passenger had made any kind of threat against the plane, or safety of other passengers... etc, it was very hard to feel safe for the remainder of my trip being left in the dark as the incident occurred in first class."
Pros: "The food was very delecious and the crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Staying seeting with no chance to raise my leg was not comfortable."
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "One carryon and no personal item - inconvenient and irritating! Security staff disposed of manicure scissors that met printed guidelines. Checked baggage was damaged, will avoid Emirates because of this. Staff, comfort, and food were very good, but will still select other airlines"
Cons: "My original flight was delayed so I needed to book for a hotel in manila and need to rebook my connecting flight from christchurch to queenstown. Supposedly, the airline company should offer a reimbursement for all my additional expenses. Vey inconvenient on my part."
Cons: "Was not told that my luggage was on a weght system and not a piece system for a n international flight. I ended up paying $249 for my extra suitcase that weighted 25 lbs and it was only a 2.5 hour flighr!"
Cons: "Screens (for in-flight entertainment) kept freezing, not as much legroom as previous flights (BKK-DXB, DXB-SIN, NBO-DXB) on Emirates"
Pros: "Entertainment Staff"
Cons: "Delayed 40 min Long time for luggage"
Pros: "The flight was excellent and the service was awesome I can say that I liked the flight and it was comfortable Thanks flydubai"
Pros: "Good food."
Cons: "Some people requesting me to exchange seats. They were young boys. This is the second time in Emirates."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Food was great! The aircraft was very nice and the flight attendants were so helpful! Only a 3 1/2 hour flight and it was the best way I have flown!"
Cons: "Entertainment system at my place didn't work properly."
Pros: "So, as mentioned, this was our first time flying Emirates and from our flights from Maryland to Dubai to Philippines has been pleasant, the only issue we've had was with the security process and an incident that my wife encountered in Dubai when we were in the process of boarding to go to Washington Dulles. We landed in Dubai and we were in transit to our connecting flight. We went to our assigned gate and had to check in with security prior to waiting in our gate or boarding the plane. We checked in our electronic devices and my wife was asked to be checked. There wasn't anything wrong up until that moment. My wife cooperated with all the requests of the security agent. They asked her to go inside a security room/enclosed area and the first thing that the security agent asked my wife was why she wasn't wearing her wedding band. It was obvious that she was married because she had a tan line of the marks of wearing a ring. It was her travel ring and she removed it because it was too tight and she explained that to the agent. The agent then made the comment "so you got fat on this trip?". My wife was confused on what she said and asked her "what did you say?". The agent then repeated ..."So you're fat... that's why the wedding ring doesn't fit?" My wife was furious but maintained her cool because she didn't want to give a reason for her to be held from getting on the flight. I didn't see the situation take place and I don't know if there was anything that triggered her comment. My wife felt humiliated. I don't know the agent's name but I wanted to address the incident. Our experience with Emirates has been very pleasant but having to feel helpless after someone with authority to make that comment was humiliating and ruined the rest of her time on the flight as well as mine."
Pros: "very comprehensive entertainment system"
Cons: "Food quality was a letdown. Crew was very rushed with meal service and did not return to offer drinks once meal service concluded. No ammenity pack for a business flight."
Pros: "The aircraft windows were clean, that's about it!"
Cons: "Everything, horrible food, no amenity bag for long flight. No toothbrush?? Dirty bathrooms from one hour into the flat guy till the end. Bad service all and all disaster not to mention that they cracked my suitcase."
Cons: "Ok"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Flight was a hour late, then we sat on the plane for another half hour because people were in the wrong seat"
Cons: "The food was very poor, the service was not as good as before. For example they didnt provide earplug and sleeping beauty and they served the breakfast too early, so it was not enough time to sleep. After the breakfast there was still plenty of time around 1,5-2 hours. I think with the departure time at 03.00 a.m. the airline try to save one foood just after the departure. The asian noodle what they provided upon request, was not sufficiant neither fit to the rank of the airline."
Pros: "OK flight"
Pros: "Lots of leg room. Excellent entertainment system."
Cons: "Not every seat had a power outlet. They took the headphones back a little too soon."
Pros: "Great staff and in flight entertainment"
Cons: "Other passengers..."
Pros: "Spacious Crew Food Ambience"
Cons: "Personal screen did not work"
Pros: "In-flight entertainment was good."
Cons: "Was sitting in 41D. By the team they came to my seat, they ran out of the standard vegetarian meal. I was told I 'had to pre-order' the veg meal, although it had never happened in the 10+ long haul 14-hr flights I've taken with Emirates in the past. I was under the impression you only had to pre-order special meals like religious (Jain, Hindu) meals and not the std veg meal. Emirates should advise so while booking a ticket. Secondly the flight attendant who was telling me this was INCREDIBLY rude. This was extremely uncharacteristic from Emirates crew as I had always come across very pleasant flight attendants. This particular attendant constantly, and very indifferently, asked me if I wanted chicken or lamb, despite me repeatedly saying I am a vegetarian. This continued for a couple of minutes, and then she got flustered, rudely asked again if I want to eat or not. I said I am not going to eat a non-veg meal, and then she dragged the tray away. Without offering me any kind of veg alternative (Emirates carries pizzas as well in this long haul flights). I ended up not eating anything for that meal. Extremely unpleasant experience which was not expected from Emirates."
Cons: "When I was boarding on my 14 hour flight from Dubai to the US, I was briefly informed by the Emirates boarding staff that my seat had been changed. I had specifically chosen my aisle seat because I like to stand often on long flights, so I was concerned that it had been changed. When I tried to get more information from the staff member, he dismissively said "Ma'am, this is a good seat" and handed me my ticket without even making eye contact. There was no apology or courtesy of any kind. I ended up with a window seat and I had to crawl over two other people throughout the 14 hour flight to use the restroom or stretch my legs. I expected more courtesy from the staff for this kind of inconvenience and will rethink my flight plans in the future to avoid Dubai."
Pros: "It was a nice flight"
Cons: "Half way through the flight my bulkhead seat pop up screen would not remain in upright locked position so I had hold it up with extra pillows"
Pros: "Movie starts as soon as seated"
Cons: "No Emirate staff presented to due with the 20+ hours delay. Just sent their representatives who are not powerful to make decisions and at the end we have many questions not answered. Eg. Any earlier reconnect flights? Any alternative airlines? What is the checkout time of the compensation hotel? Any meal compensation if not staying at their hotel? Etc."

Thankfully the flight was short, but the crew was not very receptive and kind. They were s little ubrupt.

1 hour late each time

seat not comfortable

Cons: "Reckless and inconsiderate airline. The only carrier refusing to modify travel due to Covid-19 pandemic"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "My flight tickets were mess up and I had to purchase new tickets . Horrible"
Pros: "Crew was great. Phenomenal even."
Cons: "Economy seating, so hard to complain, I got what I paid for, but 1-2” more between seats would have kept my knees out of the lady’s back in the seat in front of me..."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and missed 2nd flight due to delay"
Pros: "The food was the best I've had on any airline in recent times. On the first flight it was a croissant and a swiss chocolate, on the second flight it was a hot danish pastry."
Cons: "The first flight was late so I was worried I'd miss my connection (however connection was delayed too so I made it). Also, I was asked to check in my bag because "the aircraft was full" however when I got on the plane I noticed it was half-empty and there would have been ample overhead room."
Cons: "Lost our bags"
Cons: "They asked me to pay for my luggages. It is strange"
Pros: "Crews was very good and helpful."
Cons: "I have to pay $100 at the airport for my second bag, which was a total surprised to me. Because when the question of how many check bag came up and I put in 2. There should be a warning come up that it will be extra charges for the second bag."
Cons: "nothing"
Cons: "Swiss does not know how to handle their own problems and hurt passengers in the process."
Cons: "Crew was excellent Seats very short on leg room and hard cushions"
Pros: "I liked how nice the crew was."
Cons: "I didn’t like how check in took a very long time. And they made me check in my carry on when it fit the restrictions and the overhead bins on board were not full."
Pros: "the crew was great."
Cons: "they asked us to check in our carry-on because the plane was full.I had important papers so I had to explain my situation. I hate confrontation so I felt anxious and I'm already an anxious flier. I feel that this should only pertain to people with larger carry-on. my was below the average size."
Pros: "I loved the upgrade to business class. It was private, spacious, and very hospitable."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Everything, but the lack of entertainment, and the seats I bought were separated."
Cons: "The lack of entertainment, and the seats I bought were separated."
Cons: "2 hours delay from jfk miss flight from Zürich to krakow wait 7hours next flight get in krakow in11clock baggage missing I’m not happy"
Pros: "Good product"
Cons: "Seat had some problems, but the crew fixed it for me"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Seats were horribly uncomfortable"
Pros: "Punctuality, onboard service and the food served were all very good. Their app is very practical, no need to go to the counter except for dispatch of luggage."
Pros: "Problem free."
Cons: "It was a great flight."
Pros: "The flight was delayed from Newark to Zurich but they were able to rearrange my connecting flight before landing. The Swiss staff were very courteous and amicable. The food was also tasty."
Pros: "Amount of times drinks, water, was served."
Cons: "The person in front of me reclined seat the whole trip. Very, very uncomfortable for me."
Pros: "The flight ,food entertainment was very good. But I don't understand the SWISS airline logic. When I did the check in in Prague and got my boarding pass the told me that the system picked me to have the additional random checkup at Zurich airport. Its ok. If it’s done for security reason why to tell the people ahead of time that they will have additional checkup of bags and personal stuff. If you want to do it for security reason do it ( I want to be safe) but don’t do it for the check mark , it doesn’t make any sense and doesn’t protect us."
Cons: "The airline changed a seat reservation after I paid for it. The Swiss support staff told me on the phone they would call me back. They never called back. I called again and was told the seats are changed and I can’t do anything anymore. The return flight seats also disappeared from the reservation. I had also paid for it. The support staff when I called again put back the seats for my return flight. I tried to check in online. Not working. Tried at least 50 times. Not working. Called the support staff. They told me to call the check in support center. I called the check in support center at least 50 times where mi was told the staff are busy and could not answer the call. I called at 6:00am next day where I was told by the check in support staff that my ticket had an issue which they did not know exactly what was the issue but prevented me to do a check in. I drove more than 2 hours to the airport where finally I could check in but I was told that my return flight seats had disappeared again. They managed to put them back again. I hope this time it’s finally ok. The support staff on the phone told me I could get reimbursed for the seat reservation I had paid for for the on going flight. The Swiss staff at the airport told me there would be no refund. Swiss is terrible"
Pros: "The hospitality & staff were impeccable."
Pros: "Nothing!! And by the way this is the last time I travel with you guys. I couldn’t travel because of my itinerary doula -Bruxelle - Zurich- Washington Dulles . I was not told when I bought the ticket that I will need a visa to transit between Bruxel to Zurich. Now they told me that my only option is to buy another ticket . Thank God éthiopien Airline was more affordable."
Cons: "Nothing!! And by the way this is the last time I travel with you guys. I couldn’t travel because of my itinerary doula -Bruxelle - Zurich- Washington Dulles . I was not told when I bought the ticket that I will need a visa to transit between Bruxel to Zurich. Now they told me that my only option is to buy another ticket . Thank God éthiopien Airline was more affordable."
Pros: "food!"
Cons: "space at my feet!"
Pros: "The flight was delayed due to technical problems, and they immediately gave each person 20 Francs towards dinner while in the terminal- which was very nice. The aircraft itself was impeccably clean, even though it had already carried passengers elsewhere earlier in the day. The service was fantastic, and you can never go wrong with free chocolate."
Pros: "Loved the crew and movie options, the hydrating must in the bathroom was awesome!"
Cons: "I wish the seats were more comfortable"
Pros: "Very pleasant flight, excellent take off, didn't feel a thing. The crew was friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Great flight, happy to have service from Zurich to Nis."
Cons: "1 hr 50'' delay"
Pros: "It was an uneventful trip, which is what you want in a trip by air. Boarding was easy, seats are pretty comfortable, staff friendly and helpful."
Cons: "They could not give me an aisle seat which I had requested. The cabin felt as if you were sitting in a tin can. Very restricted for an almost 8-hour flight. Plus arriving in Athens I discovered that my bag was nowhere to be found. I am still waiting to hear from Swiss about my lost valise..."
Pros: "They put us in a nice hotel"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for more than 1 hour and it was overbooked. So they put us on a united flight for today. This flight is also overbooked."
Pros: "The quiches are so yummy, and very compact and easy."
Pros: "The seat, the airport, the service"
Cons: "The tight connection"
Pros: "Loved the cute attendant we had on flight :)"
Cons: "Old TV screen and remote"
Pros: "It's fine no comment"
Cons: "Better seats"
Cons: "The flight crew was horrible. The desk crew inept. A wheelchair was requested but not there on checkin. Pre boarding did not happen as was supposed to. Older person male at desk was rude, insulting and sarcastic. This did not happen on Boston end. The person was there with wheelchair at the Boston gate and assisted us. Not in Zurich. What about handicap travel? Swiss????"
Pros: "I loved the timing of my connecting flights. Just enough layover time."
Cons: "COMFORT: Extremely challenging and expensive to get emergency exit seats (more leg room). For someone who is 6'5" (195cm) traveling can be very challenging in an economy seat."
Cons: "No inflight entertainment."
Pros: "On every flight I have ever been on, if I request it I can get a whole water bottle vs. the small cups offered...however on this flight they refused saying 'it is against the rules"?? As a result I had to bother the flight crew over 10 times to refill my small glass...a huge inconvenience for both of us. The other inconvenience (one I have not experienced in over 5-6 years) was the the headphone jacks were the old fashioned kind...meaning you could not use your own, and the buds given by the airline were very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "Beautiful new jumbo jet"
Cons: "Changed plane and seats so boarding was delayed"
