Very nice, professional staff even after 13 hours of flight. Just excellent. Thank you for this very pleasant experience. Will definitely fly Singapore Airlines again."
Cons: "There is room for improvement with the special meals. The non gluten brun was very hard. In general it would be nice if passengers could pre-order from a set selection of foods online what they would like on their tray. This would hopefully lower the amount of food that sadly goes to waste. Also it would be nice to have gluten free snacks on board. Flying with celiac disease is not easy."

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: "Other airlines always offer free upgrades on a not go crowded flights, but had not experienced that from Singapore airline. I've already traveled twice this year with them."

Pros: "Overall service, good leg space."
Cons: "We were seated in the same section with four babies."

Pros: "Vegeterian breakfast was good thou ."

I was badly injured in the armed forces and have lost my hearing which affects my balance. I asked for an aisle seat as I'm a big guy as s personal trainer. But was given seat E. Next to a huge obese guy. He slept whole journey, must of had nightmares and jumped and banged me repeatadly. I had the first meal, which was not great but edible. I couldn't eat it properly as I couldn't move my left arm due to the blob Sat next to me. I asked the stewardess to wake me at the meal times so I could get more food. She didn't. Not once. I couldn't even get out the seat to go toilet or get any of the help yourself stuff outside the toilets due to the fat blob I was put next too. Totally disgusted with the whole flight and crew when everytime I've used the same company before it was excellent."

Cons: "On such a long flight from Dubai to Boston, the seats in coach were criminal!

Although the price was good, we truly suffered on this trip."

Pros: "Everything Was Just Perfect"
Pros: "Very efficient. Fab selection of movies."

Cons: "Overall ICE was great but didn't seem to have many new films"
Pros: "Friendly, capable crew. Seats very comfortable - properly flat/horizontal beds."

Cons: "I am a 76 yr old traveller, did not get the change in flight schedule until I booked my flight. I was at Dubai airport for over 12 hours waited for the 3AM flight that took another 14 hours. Very stressful and tiring. There was not even a proper accommodation for this very long wait between flights. This experience will be told to all my friends and trust me it will be a very bad, negative endorsement."

Cons: "I have no space for my legs ..i have 1.97 cm ..other things are excellent"
Pros: "The cabin crew were excellent. All of them. They gave me great service. It was once of the best long haul flights I've had in economy. Fantastic. I was seated in seat 80H. Please see to it that the cabin crew who serviced this area are well rewarded. If every flight had crew like these guys and gals then flying would be a lot more enjoyable."
Cons: "I really can't find anything to complain about."
Pros: "Everything except food"
Cons: "Nothing as such."
Pros: "380's mostly comfortable serious entertainment system and well trained,efficient ,friendly staff."
Cons: "Crew attitude. Business seat was broken and they could have cared less. Business Class on A380 is a joke. Narrow seats, too few disorganised crew arguing amongst themselves and a bad attitude off at least three of them."

When we arrived at Dubai I was told my name was not on the list for assistance even though I had been taken to the flight in a wheelchair and informed check-in and flight crew. The Emerates assistance people made it seem as if they were doing us a favour by assisting us,made us stand around waiting for a buggy then for the train at no time did they show any respect or compassion for the people they were supposed to be assisting."

Pros: "Crew did their best, but that wasn't great."
Cons: "We pre ordered vegetarian meals for my vegetarian daughter, and the flight attendant went out of her way to mention that there was nothing ordered. Original direct flight from LAX to Sydney was delayed by almost 12 hours for "maintenance", so we were rerouted via SFO and Brisbane. 15 hours took 24"
Cons: "Seat was broken. Plane was very warm, but Very friendly crew, and flight was on time :)"
Pros: "Great Business Class Lounge close to departure gate."

Pros: "Food was good. Crew was very accommodating."
Cons: "Very cramped seating. Trouble with iPad service."
Cons: "My family of 4 were not seated together even though all four tickets were purchased together in the same booking. After booking through KAYAK for flights, the on-line check-in process was a nightmare with the KAYAK booking number not matching the information required by QANTAS. As my children were all spread over the plane, and two son's look very similar, a hostess almost did not serve one of my son's a meal as she believed my son had already received a meal further forward in the plane. Thankfully, upon checking, the hostess realised that it was a case of mistaken identity."
Pros: "Cabin crew were helpful and updated us on connections in Melbourne (although they wouldn't have needed to do this if the flight hadn't have left late)."
Cons: "Flight was late and this was significant as I had a tight connection in Melbourne. There did not seem to be a good reason it was late as the aircraft was already at Launceston. They just towed it to the gate late! No announcements were made as to the lateness of the flight until the departure time had actually passed."
Pros: "Mostly everything great."
Cons: "Leg room for me a bit small. Dinner a bit mushy."

Cons: "Really unnecessary delays."
Pros: "Very good service"
Cons: "Food was very average for business class"
Pros: "This was the plane flown to and from Brisbane apparently. It's one of the oldest in their fleet. The economy seats were significantly smaller than our flight from Melbourne and the premium economy and business were not as nice either. Really. It comfortable. Crew weren't super friendly but were very professional."
Pros: "Flight crew were not enthusiastic about their job. Need to do service with a smile & not act like we are burdening when a request for certain service was made."
Cons: "Plenty of movies to watch"
Pros: "I didn't die; also was able to change from middle seat to aisle"
Cons: "- unable to check in online - unable to check in at kisok at airport - belts broke while waiting to drop bag, took forever - there was a leak above my seat, water kept dripping on me - only 1 of 3 options available for dinner meal, did not get the one I wanted; chicken was disgusting - person in front of me was given first choice of breakfast since he didn't get his dinner choice, I was not offered the same preference - my breakfast choice ran out right before the attendants got to me, got screwed again - crew did not apologize or make it up to me"
Pros: "It was a smooth uneventful flight. We arrived on time."
Cons: "The distance between the seats has decreased substantially. Reminds me of a Jetstar budget flight. The food being served in cardboard boxes was Aldo a big shock. For the cost of a qantas flight I expected more comfort and better food served"
Pros: "Complementary food, movies, shows, and beverages"
Cons: "- delayed flight because of delayed crew - They've had many crew injuries helping customers moving overhead luggage, so they asked customers to sort their own luggage out. Hey, how about teaching OH&S to staff and employing staff that can perform their duties?"
Pros: "Overall a great plane- we were on the 380 going to lax and then we switched to a really old plane. There was a delay of 3 hours from lax which was very annoying."
Cons: "The delay was horrifying. Staff were friendly enough but they really should have offered more snacks and water"
Cons: "I was not able to check-in on my mobile phone. I was not able to check-in at the Kiosk. I had to check my carry-on bag all the way through to Los Angeles."
Pros: "This was AA flying for Quantas and it was all very nice; the taste of the food left something to be desired, but it was all decent portions and we were fed three times. The staff was terribly accommodating and friendly. The entertainment was top notch! The flight was smooth and was as comfortable as a 12 hour flight can be. After the hellish experience I had at both O'hare and LAX, it was a lovely way to end/begin the trip."
Cons: "Nothing, really."
Pros: "I had a nose bleed (a side effect of treatment that I had), and although it wasnt causing me great distress, a crew member noticed it and slipped me a few extra tissues without making a fuss about it. That was very much appreciated."
Cons: "Did not have any meal for the 2h45m flight"
Pros: "Qantas Launge"
Pros: "Plane crew all ok"
Cons: "The staff at the check in desk was really really rude and mean. I went there because I was desparate due to my flight delay. I kept asking things because I was confused but she treated me so awful. SHE EVEN SAID “NO MORE QUESTION” and threw me away. Really Disrespectful."
Pros: "We were late arriving due to roadworks at the entrance to the airport leading us miles out of our way due to poor signage Baggage had closed and the Qantas staff were excellent in ensuring that we caught the flight .Well done !"
Pros: "Service is great and crew members are very friendly."
Cons: "Audio system (both of us) were down. We were had to move to other seats in order to enjoy inflight entertainment."

Cons: "Delays at the airport Economy very uncomfortable Crappy food"

Cons: "Food taste was mediocre. Menu seemed to have a long list but delivered food did not match. No USB port or Electrical outlets to charge cell phones & Laptops."
Pros: "I lucked out and was able to get a emergency row seat which helped tremendously because of having long legs."
Cons: "What I don't like is what is true of all airlines now and that is that if you are born with long legs you are penalized and expected to pay more money than people with short legs - that is prejudice and not fair to people that cannot do anything about it. I understand charging obese people extra because they have a chance to change it. Also, seats are too narrow now!!!"
Cons: "Bags got lost. Not enough time for connection at LAX ."
Pros: "They went above and beyond"
Cons: "All was great"
Pros: "plane will clean and service pleasant. hot meal service on 2.5 hour fight."
Cons: "limit weight of roller carry on limited to 8 kg, though did not check weight of shoulder bags New Zealand immigration is intense with bio inspection - check that you do not have any nuts or other issues as took a long time to inspect packaged food bought at Sydney airport Prior to check-in, needed evidence of flight leaving New Zealand, not just confirm number - paper with actual ticket number"
Cons: "1. Qantas was not interested in the fact that we were seniors and and that we were distress from our flight from USA. KAYAK SEND THESE COMMENTS ON TO QANTAS My phone no here in New Zealand is 0223446325 I can be contacted on this no. for more comment."
Pros: "Staff obliging food excellent on time all good"
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "Theee was not enough leg room. Apart from that the flight was excellent."
Pros: "It was a safe and clean flight. We left BNE an hour late (due to late plane arrival form SYD) but landed on time."
Cons: "I have always been a fan of Qantas but I do not recall your food offerings to be this bad from my last flight in 2012. It is less than meh. Most passengers relied on inflight entertainment system (I preloaded my iPad Pro with what I wanted to watch). The system was down most of the flight. They finally got it back after consulting with the ground tech support and rebooting it many times. This impacted most people's experience."
Pros: "Very unprofessional crew, particularly Katarina who had quite an attitude and twice left out the last four rows for drinks and coffee. Simply out of laziness."
Cons: "Online check-in had website issues and did not allow seat selection. Web check-in and on board service need significant improvements. Would not fly Etihad again; much higher standards and better service with Emirates or Qatar Air."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and staff were helpful when approached."
Cons: "Crew should have been proactive in determining passengers' needs, etc. Film choices were poor-- lots of violence, few family-orientated options."
Pros: "short lay over in Abudhabi. Flight was on time."
Cons: "At Abu Dhabi airport my mother had to change her plane , where assistance for elderly and wheel chair was extremely limited . Also the food on the plane was not as good as the food service on most international flights."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "Extra leg space. Nicer crew. Better airport and boarding experience"
Pros: "Seats near me were empty"
Cons: "There was no vegetarian food. This is a big thing. The stewardess walked past me although I was waiting to buy from duty-free."
Cons: "I wish I knew that I could have get a room or food vouchers when I was ordering an e ticket("
Pros: "Main meal (Singapore noodles) was actually ok."
Cons: "The cabin crew had a very difficult time dealing with the annoying passengers, who were mainly tourists returning from Abu Dhabi. They had a tough job, but it was all very negative and stressful."
Pros: "Not much to enjoy. Food was bread with hummus with cheese(?) pretty plain."
Cons: "Seats were very slim and limited leg room. Balkhead did not offer much storage. Cumbersome to get in and out of easily. One of the poorest trip in my 63 country travels. Would not recommend Etihad to my friends."
Pros: "All the hospitality and entertainment system was great"
Cons: "The holy Quran I listen to"
Cons: "Flight delayed Baggage lost & didn’t receive upon arrival"
Pros: "Flight was punctual. A380 is a nice plane to fly on, but see other comments. Entertainment choices are good, but see other comments."
Cons: "On arrival at Sydney, discovered my bag damaged. The metal cage that holds the handle slider had been broken so they must have really thumped the bag. Re windows and cabin lighting. Flight left Abu Dhabi at 21:50, landed Sydney at 17:50 next day. The cabin was kept in darkness until 3pm Sydney time / 9am Abu Dhabi time. This only gave us 2 hours of daylight on Tuesday, terrible in trying to adjust to a new timezone!! Even going off Abu Dhabi time, why wait till 9am to turn on the lights and raise the windows? No-one sleeps that long and it creates too much darkness. Please turn on the lights and raise window shades a few hours earlier to help our body clocks adjust. The view of the world outside the window is also interesting! Re entertainment system: with some airlines you can use the entertainment system immediately on embarking but with Etihad you have to wait till airborne. Considering boarding begins an hour before departure, that is a long time to sit waiting without being able to use the entertainment system. Re comfort: I don't know why, but the Etihad A380 seats have this weird head rest on one side that can't be folded flat. I found it quite annoying. Also when you recline the seat, it also goes forward scrunching you towards the seat in front. I found the Emirates A380 seat a lot roomier and more comfortable."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "food was bad in taste ,they present us just like give to baggers there was no serving in trays .pictures show in add. are all falls we did not get that kind of food in our whole trip . for exps .in dinner they serve 2 small buns filled with 2 leave of spinch 1 bean barito 1small piece of chocolate for desert. for breakfast was lentel,with mashed patatos.when I asked for somthing else.reply was we do not have anything else.so i did not have anything in my 15 houre flight."

Pros: "The crew on board were gracious in helping swap seats with a passenger so that my partner and I could sit next to each other."
Cons: "My partner and I had booked our tickets separately and so were under different levels of check in (online). We were first to baggage drop at Ahmedabad and believed the staff at the check in counter would assist in getting our seats together as I have been shifted from my checked in seat on a previous flight. However he was unfriendly and unaccomodating which made it a very unpleasant journey."
Pros: "It was a smooth flight."

Pros: "Good airline and I like the fact that kids and seniors are boarded first regardless of seating."
Cons: "Food was horrible and most of the time there wasnt an option between veg and non veg even when the flight was mostly empty. Taste was really bad."
Pros: "Good entertainment program, seat space in Economy class is fine, amenity kit even in Economy Class"
Cons: "Only one service (dinner after aperetive) and no soft drinks, coffee/tea before landing. Cabin crew has not been seen after the service and seemed to be bored by the job."
