Cons: "Harder than usually landing"
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Pros: "everything..Singapore airlines is a amazing airline !!! there is a reason why they are no 1 for so many years..."
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "Flight was canceled. They moved passengers to the Lufthansa but didn’t tell us even though we checked with the counter every 20 min. Apparently a text went out that we didn’t get"
Pros: "Crew amazing. Seat super comfortable"
Cons: "Excellent service"
Pros: "Extra leg room, great service and good food."
Cons: "The entertainment system feels dated (no touch screen) manual rewinding of movies, selection of movies"
Pros: "Excellent service, made a very long flight very pleasant and enjoyable."
Pros: "Lie-flat seats in business class"
Cons: "4 hrs delay due to failure of Singapore Airlines to have a working plane on site at the appointed time. Even worse: chaotic deplaning with one crew member telling passengers to deplane and another yelling at them in the bridge for doing so. A mess of lines trying to get a new boarding pass for a rebooked missed connection—at the front of the line the agent said oh, you need to wait in this other line. Agents had no clue where to direct passengers and gave incorrect directions that necessitated more waiting. No updates to new flight time in the business class lounge. Once the flight was in the air, service was terrible. Attendants would ask for orders, then never bring them or bring the wrong thing."
Pros: "Great service!"
Pros: "Great service always smiling, flight on time, overall a great way to fly."
Pros: "all of SQ"
Pros: "more room in the seats - excellent hostesses who are so friendly and helpful - lovely food."
Pros: "Cabin crew was top notch - even in coach they could not be more accommodating and customer friendly. US airline flight attendants don’t even come close to this team that truly serviced the cabin for 8 hours continuously without the typical hiding in the back of the plane and chatting. Very encouraging that genuine care in the air is very much alive and well on Singapore Air! I will fly them every chance I get!"
Cons: "That my flight had to end and I know my next US airline flight won’t come close to this kind of experience! Air travel doesn’t have to be a cattle herding process with peanut treats on cross country flights - shame on the US carriers - I strongly suggest they fly Singapore Air to see what true customer service feels like!"
Pros: "crew very helpful with seating service on board also good"
Cons: "head phones for entertainment very uncomfortable Food not to my taste"
Pros: "It's not the cheapest way to fly but it's a great way to cross the Atlantic. Seats are big enough for 2, really. Lay flat beds make the night crossing east tolerable. You really can get several hours sleep. The cabin crew is outstanding, patient, and extremely responsive to requests. Two meals served were excellent. Entertainment choices were complete. After a number of flights in Economy on other airlines I'm spoiled by Singapore Airlines and also by Business Class. And their fares seemed much less than others for the JFK to FRA route. Had no idea this level of luxury existed on an airplane."
Cons: "My seat assignment was moved without explanation on our return flight, FRA to JFK. That was disappointing. The gate folks were apologetic but no real explanation given."
Pros: "Spacious economy class seating and great service"
Pros: "Flight crew, food, boarding and entertainment great."
Cons: "Just didn't like the 7 hour delay for the flight. Nobody's fault."
Pros: "The trip was uneventful, with the usual excellent service."
Cons: "Flight attendants were bot friendly, appearwd to be botheted when askes questions or requests were made."
Pros: "I dropped my scarf and only realized after I was seated. People were still boarding and I told a young man attendant and he found it and brought it to me. And he was such a gentleman too! Wish I knew his name but it was Frankfurt to JFK 835am flight on April 3rd. Thank you again!"
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Singapore was fine and helpful with a crazy problem JustFly created then didn’t fix."
Cons: "JustFly billed the wrong price, then to fix that,created a new ticket with my name misspelled and failed to cancel the original ticket. We later upgrade seats via Singapore then discovered the duplicate booking and misspelling. To fix that JustFly cancelled the booking with the seat upgrade. Singapore restored our upgrade at the airport but only on one direction so we had to go through it all again."
Pros: "EVERYTHING was great...from check in to the entire experience on board. Extremely friendly staff to delicious food and a great choice of beverages! Clean and tidy aircraft with lots of extra amenities. Pleasant flight, pleasant arrival. Always a great way to travel!"
Cons: ""Customs" at JFK came to an entire halt. All passengers where stuck in the welcome hall for 1h, without any information, why held there and why nothing was moving forward. All CBP booths were closed, but 8 (eight!) employees, who normally direct arriving passengers to the kiosk-machines where hanging out in two groups sharing private stories and having laughs instead of at least informing passengers, what was going on. Lots of passengers where outraged...a couple in their mid 70s in front of us had to sit down on the floor, since they had circulation problems from standing in line so long. Sadly, JFK isn't what it used to be anymore."
Pros: "wide seats. great service. on time."
Cons: "food was not as good as one would expect."
Pros: "That the A380 was only 70%full, resulting in me getting three seats to myself. I was able to stretch out and sleep for most of the flight. Food and service were top notch. Better value than Lufthansa or American, for the overall flight experience. You could fly cheaper, but not better, in economy."
Cons: "Though we landed early at JFK, we had a one hour wait on the tarmac until one of the only two gates capable of receiving an A380 opened up."
Pros: "Ontime, airline stewards were excellent and tv entertainment very good"
Pros: "Excellent service & comfort"
Pros: "Safe smooth flight. Timely take off and arrival. Great personalised service. Consistently high service standard is well appreciated."
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Best serves ever will fly every time"
Pros: "Love the service at Singapore Air. Very attentive and accommodating."
Cons: "Security at Frankfurt airport was horribly slow. Also, audio jack didn't work properly. Not sure how often that's checked."
Pros: "I got in some exercise during the delays and gate changes"
Cons: "Delay after delay, gate changes, lack of care from employees, missed a day of vacation in Germany, missed out on photos and memories"
Pros: "The entertainment 100s of movies & Shows The very good portions just right"
Cons: "Boarding is very efficient and well organized But when it is going to be an hour late the passengers should be told not stand there on lines with no information"
Cons: "Extremely cramped flight in regular Economy."
Pros: "Seating space was very good. Meals terrific"

Cons: "Cabin was beat up and worn out."
Pros: "everything great, every time again"
Pros: "The meals were great, the seats very comfortable, the entertainment system very good as well."
Cons: "The Internet was very expensive and very little. I was disappointed, and had to ask 3 times to different attendants to help me set it up. They were not acquainted with the process at all."
Pros: "The flight experience was pretty great overall.."
Cons: "I didn't like that interacting with their websitewas not very iser friendly or reliable. While most domestic airlines allow you to easuly interact with your itinerary I pretty much had to just show up and hope everything worked out. Also no alerts or other functions."
Pros: "The food was great!"
Cons: "The announcements coming from the boarding crew were not clear or hardly under stable."
Pros: "The flight was SO OLD and uncomfortable which is absolutely ridiculous for a 16 hour flight. My screen did not work the entire time despite asking flight attendants to fix the issue. The flight attendant would not attend to me despite me pressing the button and twice skipped me while giving out meals. I had to call them back and ask for it. The bathrooms were SO dirty and yet no flight attendant took out the trash or cleaned it even though we are in the midst of a pandemic. We were also not given hygiene kits to keep ourselves safe. DO NOT FLY WITH THIS AIRLINE."
Pros: "Inflight entertainment was superb, catering in main cabin was also excellent. The crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "Main cabin seats were definitely better than other airlines, but still not the most comfortable for 8+ hours."
Pros: "The crew was okay And the seats good it’s little wide In general was okay"
Cons: "The food not so good I like service on the plane was good"
Cons: "Wrong communication for connecting flights. Poor customer service, flight attendants not friendly."
Pros: "Live sport TV, on board wifi"

Cons: "All was ok just didn’t sleep to well on the long 8 hour flights"
Pros: "everything! the A380 plane and the onboard entertainment and services was fantastic"
Pros: "Not really there service are not like before"
Pros: "seats and entertainment"
Cons: "food. simple option"
Pros: "I had 4 sectors except the first one 3 of them was with unfriendly cabin crew not smiling at all not responding the calls."
Pros: "The attendant helped find me a vegan option at the last second."
Cons: "Delays boarding meant we were almost 30 mins late arriving in Wellington. Cramped seats on Qantas 737 plane"
Pros: "The space in the 380"
Cons: "when i asked for lunch they said it will be served in 20mins and i got it after 50 mins i was very hungry"
Cons: "Waited at the wrong gate, missed the connecting flight and Had to spend $612.00 to get on another flight . What If I could not afford the ticket ?"
Pros: "The food was pretty good and the one ICE video center that was working offered a ton to watch."
Cons: "On a 13-hour flight, the video center is your main source of not losing your mind. Truly disappointing when you pay for the extra leg room in an exit row and you can’t watch any videos. Unfortunately, the ICE video center was broken on the way to Dubai also. In addition, the flight crew lets people stand around in front of you which reduces the extra leg room you pay a hefty price for. What’s the point of charging over $700 for this added “luxury” on each of your flights from JFK to Male, Maldives when you can’t use it. Emirates is nice, but didn’t reach the expectations they set."
Pros: "Flying on economy Emirates was a fantastic experience. It should be the industry standard."
Cons: "The entire experience"
Pros: "Emirates is the best Airline"
Pros: "Crew made the flight a pleasant time dispute the 13 hours in the air. Good service, Good food and reasonably comfortable accommodations."
Cons: "The entertainment system needs some updating - kept freezing and needed to rebooted to continue watching. Wouldn't normally care but with all that time captured in air you need it to work."
Pros: "Expenting better from the Airline and Airport. Airpor has only 2 lounges at other terminals for passengers flying either Delta or United, Not for Emirstes and no Priority Pass. The service was not as expected, took me more than 25 min to get a flight attendant to reach my seat to request a glass of water... when I went to the back of the plane to get water I was told to get back to my sest since seatbelt sign was on (it happend to be turned on for 12 hrs over a 14hr flight... Other than that service is better, than modt of US airlines. I flight frequently and I have boarded Emirates before, economy and business, I feel that they do not deserve best airline qualification for economy, fir example KLM is much better."
Cons: "Attention of Flight Attendants Wait before boarding No major airline alliance or frequent flyer program For pay WIFI a complicated selection in the menu and no runs for extra water or drinks Old headphones not compatible eith other comercialized and used by the rest of the world."
Pros: "service , crew , food entertainmentminimal"
Cons: "not much"
Pros: "better than super stinky American carriers"
Cons: "everything, food was below average"
Cons: "Departure time ruins the whole night"
Cons: "Cabin temperature in the Economy section was too cold with cold air blasting from AC vents The staff did nothing to change this in spite of several requests from different passengers"
Pros: "Good space for economy class"
Cons: "Announce duty free on flight is closing soon so if interested to purchase last min pls check with crew...by the time you get hold of crew I find out it’s closed - all in 5 mins, from the time I saw message and spoke with crew member it was shut. Should give a little more time on announcements, enough to get a crew member and see products to purchase."
Pros: "Movie choices"
Cons: "Checkin services Staff attitude"
Pros: "It was fine. Crew was pleasant, though obviously stretched thin. Food was decent. We ran a little late boarding, but they managed to take off almost on time."
Cons: "The 777 was crowded and had very little leg room. Our seats were worse than most, as they were over the wing which limited visibility and restricted the already limited leg room of that passenger even more."
Pros: "Spacious plane. Comfort in Economy Class wascwonderful. Crew'a attention to the passengers wascexcellent."
Cons: "Broke my bags."
Pros: "Friendly crew, great extras, great food. Superior experience with this airline."
Pros: "Entertainment and crew service are very good."
Cons: "boarding could have started on time."
Pros: "Food was better than Iberia or Delta. Staff greeting friendly."
Cons: "Asked for wine - never came back. No reply. Nothing. Asked for water an hour later - never got water. Asked later in flight, got nasty reply: "Not my job to satisfy coach customers.""
Pros: "Fantastic flight from start to finish lax to dubai. I was offered upgrade to business class from economy for $1000 USD which was well worth the cost as the 15 1/2 flight can be tough in economy. The a380 is smooth, much more quiet and is pressurized to lower altitude than most planes so you do get off feeling more refreshed. Service and food were good and the inflight entertainment is first class with hundreds of movies on demand."
Cons: "Took 50min after deboarding for luggage to arrive at baggage claim but I'm told that's not the usual and emirates staff were there to apologize and let us know of the unusual delay."
Pros: "I was impressed by the professionalism!"
Cons: "Chinese passengers passing gas!"
Pros: "Everything. Emirates is fantastic. Great service more room in economy than others."
Pros: "Everything i mean whats there not to like ?"
Pros: "I love that I got a cute little bag filled with things like socks, eyemask, and ear plugs. Its just the little extra things that made it better"
Pros: "I was fully satisfied"
Cons: "Onboard upgrades for one way was too expensive"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and professional. I want to hightlight the exceptional quality of the meal served"
Pros: "Friendly staff awesome planes wonderful experince"
Cons: "Service was a bit slow. Drinks and food took quite sometime to arrive."
Cons: "I was given boarding card at Karachi airport to go to terminal B at gate 29, and at eleventh hour informed that flight was scheduled at Teeminal A at gate 11. The ground staff was not supportive at all and screamed at me on part of their own error. It was an horrible experience and I might not take Emirates flight."
Pros: "Food was ok. Boarding and check in was good too"
Cons: "The crew from kwt to Dubai was so cheap asking if u get a headset we don't hand out one :) funny but cheap..."
Cons: "The plain was late & communication by Emirates with the flyers was poor to non-existent."
Cons: "The overall experience and lack of response to rectify missed connecting flights, damaged luggage and overall bad customer service for an airline that wants to advertise its pride and attention to service. Much can be improved."
Pros: "Emirates business class is excellent."
Cons: "Cannot think of anything to complain about."
Cons: "Crew is not responding properly"
Pros: "Same as above."
Pros: "Nice flight"
Cons: "time delay at Dubai Airport"
