Lost my luggage in Singapore, which was not transferred to my destination flight to Hanoi. Singapore Air takes absolutely no responsibility for their wholly owned subsidiary Scoot Airlines. The airline can do everything right, but if they lose your luggage, they’ve failed

All good

. It was so unorganized! They kept all the passagers waiting while they do there meeting, they said they would open checked in by around 4pm but instead they took another 20mins to check people in, on top of the that they kept as changing lines like 5times! The check in in new york was very horrible! The people at the check in counter acted like they were immagration! Asking for our birthcertiface and old passport, it was the first time i ever encountered checkin who acted like immigration officers! They made it so painful! We were already waiting for almost 5hours! Horrible service! I would never fly Singapore airline again after this experience! Won’t recommend it to anybody!

Departure was on time and arrived early. Second meal in business class could have been later; did not need to be woken up just yet and would have preferred more of a breakfast closer to arrival.

Excellent service. Clean aircraft. Took off and landed on time. Did not feel it was an 18 hour flight. Will definitely fly Singapore Airlines again.

The staff were very friendly. Love the legroom space even in economy. Staff were friendly and onboard entertainment has a lot of good choices!

Business class. Staff service was PHENOMENAL. Seats/beds were spacious and comfortable (I had the seat in the middle section which can become a queensize bed with the next seat. I have had more satisfying food in economy, however traveling with an infant, the spacious seat/bed allowed him to sleep for a few hours. The staff were very good to accomdating him too.

Airplane flight is good,nice and clean

Delayed flights!!!!! Had to rent a car from JFK and drive home to Syracuse $225! Have to be to work at 5am Monday NOT HAPPY

My seat wasn’t comfortable enough even though I paid for it. Seafood menu wasn’t good. I was left hungry throughout my flight because I cannot eat a lot of stuff :( overall it was a pleasant flight. Passengers are pretty well behaved and less noisy compared to Cathay Pacific. There are no toilet seat papers.

Delays were given at intervals. So we were informed

Pros: "Amazing crew, very nice and helpful."
Pros: "The staff was amazing"
Pros: "The help desk employees who helped me rebook my flight."
Cons: "After rushing to catch my connecting Singapore flight, their desks were closed and there wasn’t an employee in site. Given that airlines can see connecting fights it would have been great to have someone stay back to either give me a boarding pass or help me rebook! UNSATISFACTORY!"
Pros: "Friendly service and not a super crowded plane."
Cons: "In-seat entertainment was not working for me, and boarding process could be drastically improved."
Cons: "The person next to me had a distinct body odor."
Pros: "Always love the SIA business product on long haul."
Cons: "This trip had a lot of minor service and cleanliness misses. But they are quibbles in the scheme of the overall great product."
Cons: "Great Airline. Great staff and service. Good food and drink."
Pros: "Everything, perfect flight"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. The seat were uncomfortable"
Cons: "Food could have been better."
Pros: "The crews on board were amazing!"
Cons: "The service from the ground staffs are not as good a the crews onboard."
Cons: "without any possibility to call back. or to call again while being late, when arrived with plenty of time before departure. nobody was on the gate. when tryed to do all myself whithin minutes tsa didnt bother to speedup process and it took forever. i missed my flight literally in seconds."
Pros: "Boarding. Timely departure"
Cons: "Entertainment selection."
Pros: "Service was excellent, always with a smile."
Pros: "excellent - comfy plane, great service, excellent stuff."
Pros: "The food was good, good choices and at good intervals. Lavatories were well maintained. Entertainment was excellent."
Cons: "My first leg, the crew appeared rushed. Seating was tight. Would definitely upgrade next time."
Pros: "Everything else"
Cons: "Food was less than marginal"
Pros: "Space in economy seat was good. Huge selection of movies. Food was tasty. On flights to Frankfurt, Singapore Airlines may want to keep more sparkling water in stock, as Europeans prefer this to still water."
Cons: "There was a smell in the plane when I first arrived like vomit. It may have been the cleaning supplies."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and professional and the amenities were top notch."
Cons: "There wasn't enough leg room. My knees touched the chair in front of me the whole time."
Pros: "What can I say about a flight of this length? Its always an epic journey to go from the US to Asia. However I will say that with Singapore Airlines things are a lot easier. Excellent crew who were always willing to help with my fondness for a beer. Food was as expected and up to the standard of Singapore Airlines. All round it was a long trip made a lot easier......5 stars."
Pros: "I was inpressed"
Pros: "The flight attendants were amazing."
Pros: "Amazing, amazing service! Great food (including Hagen Daaz ice cream) and good choice of beverages. Lots of different entertainment choices. VERY clean and well maintained aircraft. Staff is always friendly and happy...they really seem to absolutely love their job! Free toiletries in the bathrooms are an extra plus. Whenever there was a change in schedule / plans the captain informed the passengers immediately about what was going on and what would happen next."
Cons: "The only thing that did and probably always will be AWFUL is going thru security at JFK. The T S A officials there are unfriendly, sometimes rude, never smiling and often yelling at you or even little kids or elderly people. We are travelling a lot and no other security staff at any given airport is so unfriendly and harsh. Worst thing about going on a journey."
Pros: "There was nothing to complain about..a very friendly staff, departure on time !"
Cons: "No newspapers and magazines on board !"
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: "The crew of ladies and men where so very gracious and courtly, both to the passengers and each other. My wife and I both took note that the flight attendants were "First Class" with emphasis on class. Exceptionally well groomed, but also conveyed genuine concern and helpfulness and at the same time, real workers, energetic and perky. We are bragging to all our friends about the uplifting cultural demeanor of Singapore Airlines. They should all get a pay raise. I will always remember their wonderful service when thinking about our trip to Frankfurt, Germany. Robert"
Pros: "Service from Singapore airlines"
Pros: "Crew was great. Food not bad for airline food . It was clean."
Pros: "The service, seats, food, drinks and bed!"
Pros: "they even addressed me by name"
Pros: "Everything was outstanding. The cleanliness of the airplane, the food, the friendliness of the crew, I just can't say enough good things about my experience flying on Singapore Airlines."
Pros: "The choices for entertainment were excellent! I was never bored for a second on my 20++ hours of flight. I love how they gave us in-ear earphones instead of the normal airline headphones that keep on sliding off."
Cons: "It was quite difficult for me to get comfortable. Maybe it's due to my shortness, I can't really rest my head that well"
Pros: "My luggage was lost, due to an error of another airline. but singapore air took care of it and made sure i got the luggage in Germany - even though it involved bringing it to me to remote location 2.5 hour drive from frankfurt. free of charge. Thanks Singapore airlines!"
Pros: "From the beginning until the end the service, the vibe, the flight itself was amazing. I don't know any other airline I flew with so far that hosted me and all other flyers better. At any time I was supported by the staff and even if it was busy they constantly had a kindness and smile in their face. I don't fly with any other airline on long distance flights! It was clean and neat on top at any time. I love flying with Singapore airlines. I feel safe and in good hands all around. This is how service should be at any airline! It is never less good but a constant since years! Thank you"
Cons: "There is nothing I did not like."
Pros: "Fast boarding and crew"
Cons: "Food was terrible even for plane food was unacceptable the headphones jacks are all half way working u have to wiggle the end to make it work the chairs are very stiff and uncomfortable next time looking for another airline"
Pros: "The checkin was straight forward. The staff were very pleasant as always. The entertainment system worked."
Cons: "It was an 8 our overnight flight to another time zone where we had a full day ahead of us so we needed all the sleep we could get but instead we were fed around midnight. Lights went out for about two hours, it seemed, before we were told to put our chairs upright for the person behind us so they could serve another meal. We arrived about 10am completely shattered."
Pros: "On my flight back I got to sit in premier economy and that was amazing !! I want to fly like that all the time! The leg room and space was perfect. The comfort of the chairs recline and foot rest that raised up was great. The big tray table that tucked away was nice. And side pockets for your stuff was great. The comfort of the bigger seats was just excellent and they looked newer. On my flight back from Frankfurt to NYC that was the best flight I ever have taken."
Cons: "The only thing was the food wasn't the best. But I did have Ice cream and that was good. The rice was good and beverages was good. The rest wasn't the best."
Pros: "Had to get new boarding passes at JFK eventhough issued passes at Rochester without gate numbers but was then able to check that my bags were transferred to SIA."
Cons: "I could not select a seat on JetBlue. Indian vegetarian food was mainly rice and potaoes and bread, not much protein like paneer or egg for the non-vegans like me."
Pros: "Everything was amazing. Best flight I've ever been on!"

Cons: "The WiFi didn’t work! Don’t advertise it if it is not working. Even setting it up is far too much work/confusing."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "I can’t be more demanding. Everything on the flight were good."
Pros: "I was disappointed that Air New Zealand charges US15 to reserve specific seats. For our party of 3, that would be US90 RT so I didn't do it. But at the gate I asked for window seats and the attendant gave us excellent seats at the front of the plane."
Cons: "No issues that caused us any problems."
Pros: "Very spacious seats and good entertainment system. Two meals provided. Good blankets provided with pillows. Spacious and clean bathroom."
Cons: "My usb charging plug didn’t work and I wish they sent me an email in advance or told me upon check in what the requirements were that I would have to show upon boarding. I was not prepared to show them my follow on flight schedule (leaving NZ) but I would have been prepared if I had known in advance"

Pros: "Baggage made it all the way to Queenstown from Perth"

Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Pros: "Air New Zealand is a great airline. They give you a lot of food and the seats seem to have a little more space between them so your knees don't hit the back of the chair!"
Pros: "Nice flight"
Cons: "That they left my luggage, 1 piece off entire flight! A brightly patterned piece! In 50 years of flying!!! Has NEVER happened! Had to spend the 1st several hours running around looking for underwear and jacket! Not a great start to vacation! And $100 nzd doesn't buy much!"
Pros: "I never doubt Air NZ , overall Ok ."
Cons: "this flight bit noisy, and felt dirty toilet ..anyway,,, I Like Air NZ .Hope good next time"

Pros: "Skycouch a MUST for long haul flights."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff"
Cons: "No WiFi or outlets on aircraft"
Pros: "I was very impressed with the older Japanese attendant’s attitude in helping everyone onboard. A family sitting 2 seats in front moved around a lot while putting their baby and toddler to sleep for the night flight. The attendant discreetly gave those of us earplugs and eye masks to help us shut out the noise. Also, her smile and pleasant attitude made it an enjoyable flight."
Cons: "When I checked in online, I had to pay extra to get an aisle seat."
Pros: "Was a huge help when my connecting flights didn’t link up due to flight delay, I was so stressed but every single person with air nz helped to make it as easy as possible and were so friendly!"
Cons: "Nothing at all!"
Pros: "friendly staff, ease of boarding"
Pros: "I was excited to see some notorious places as we flew into Queenstown....however, I wouldn't have known the places if I hadn't been sitting next to someone that knew the area."
Cons: "I can't complain about anything with Air New Zealand....I loved each flight with them."
Pros: "The customer service was great when I missed my flight."
Cons: "It was difficult to have a shorty layover and transfer from Auckland to Queenstown. I missed my flight."
Pros: "Crew was very nice. Allowed us to change seats within our section for more comfort. Good food. Loves the USB outlet at our seats."
Cons: "Friendly and efficient"
Pros: "Great choice of entertainment, crew was very fun! Food was good. Nice leg room at my seat. Carry-on compartments are very high in these planes, great for tall people, one can actually stand without hitting the head."
Cons: "I could not select my seat (for free) at booking. Later I could not checkin via internet on my mobile, I needed the APP but couldn't download it (not enough battery at the time), consequently I had to take seat given at checkin at airport but attendant kindly found me a seat that was best in what was left on a fully booked plane."
Pros: "The pilot would tell us as we were flying over different mountains, regions etc, and the flight was not at all crowded, and there is so much more seat space than on any domestic American flight I’ve ever flown!"
Cons: "They charged 60NZD for one small checked bag! And then I misunderstood the policy on lithium batteries and switched my power banks from carry-on to checked bag and they confiscated them. So there goes that."
Pros: "The people and the service were top notch. I fly on numerous carriers and overall AirNZ has been my favorite, hands down, primarily because of the helpful kind friendly staff."
Cons: "Disembarking down onto the tarmac, and being made to stand out there for about 5 minutes (supposedly for safety's sake) while another plane was being pushed out from the next gate, all the while breathing in the choking nauseating jet exhaust fumes while our own plane was idling."
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "Can't say enough about how good the experience was. It felt like business class, except the seat doesn't transform into a flat bad. Service, meals, amenities, washrooms, etc. were amazing. Also, the flight times AKL-YVR and YVR-AKL are so civilized! You leave each city around dinner time, you dine, you watch a movie, sleep as much as you want, have breakfast, and then it's time to land! Way better than other options that leave at odd times."
Cons: "I can't think of anything to improve. NZ really rocked the flight and the Premium Economy product."
Pros: "Everything! It's Air NZ!"
Cons: "Nothing!"
Cons: "The staff asked for my return ticket to the U.S. I told them I have a round trip ticket from and to Japan. I have to show them my U. S. Navy identification card otherwise Air New Zealand would not have processed my boarding pass ticket. Air New Zealand discriminates."
Pros: "Air NZ are great. Kayak are not,"
Cons: "I couldn’t tell about the food and entertainment because even after several call to Kayak trying to upgrade to a flight where food and entertainment were included because it said “no meal service” on my itinerary I was assured they were included and what do you know. They weren’t. I will never be using Kayak again. Very poor serve from people I phoned. They did no know what they were doing."
Pros: "Queenstown/Christchurch: quick and easy. Air New Zealand does a good job."
Cons: "All g."
Pros: "Flight was on time, airplane was clean, flight attendants friendly and attentive. Very pleasant flying experience"
Pros: "The staff was incredible. Additionally I loved all the entertainment options."
Cons: "We missed our connection flight slightly due to the fact that we weren't able to connect our baggage to British Airways and that the flight came in late."
Pros: "entertainment, cleanliness, comfort"
Cons: "seats go far back in front of your face"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Someone sitting in my seat already!"
Cons: "Having to pick up our bags and going through customs was horrible and stressful. Bags coming off the flight last made the customs line very long, after going through customs couldn't find where to check our bags on to Queenstown, finally found the the automatic check-in, too late only one person to help. So late had to walk to the domestic terimal, in a hurry. Finally found the check-in, checked all 3 bags, arrived in Queenstown, only two came in."
Cons: "We were booked on a 7 a.m. flight Wednesday morning. We arrived from Syndney the night before and wanted to make sure we were set for the early morning flight so went to an Air NZ information desk to get boarding pass. The agent printed out an e-ticket and said we were good to go. We arrived an hour and a half early to the gate, with our carry on bags as we have done all over the world. We heard an announcement about bags needing to be checked and assumed ours would be gate checked if needed (as anywhere else in the world). The gate agent didn't arrive til 20 minutes before the flight and told us we DIDN'T have a boarding pass and needed to return to the ticket agent and check our bags. By the time we ran back to the ticket agent we were told it was too late to check our bags. We had to pay $100 more a piece to fly LATER through Christ Church. We were on our way to meet our kids for vacation and ended up losing a day and $200 additional dollars because we were given inaccurate information by the Air New Zealand info desk."
Pros: "The service was great and the seats had a lot of leg room. Very easy to check in online and drop bags at the airport."
Cons: "The wine was delicious and I wanted more"
Pros: "terrible customer service. wrong information on ticket and nobody could help me with anything. I will never fly emirates again"

Cons: "Long boarding lines at Liberty International Airport."
Pros: "Plane was modern and more comfortable than most"
Cons: "I do understand that it was an overnight flight but the crew came around only during meals and at no other time did they check on us. I hit the call button and nobody came - call button just went off. I was in the middle next to a sleeping passenger and could not get up."
Pros: "Crew was amazing."
Cons: "Seats were a little narrow and could use new cushions."
Pros: "The food was good. The crew was very accommodating."
Cons: ".If the seats recline to just a little bit more"
Pros: "The crew was great and the dinner was really good!"
Cons: "Breakfast could have been better and the seat was pretty uncomfortable"
Pros: "Timing of flight"
Cons: "Baggage policy has changed and has become too restrictive. Wieight and size and number of checked baggage is below competitors for transatlantic flights. Same for cabin luggage and is enforced randomly. Some economy passers were allowed two pieces, others were forced to check in cabiuggahe at $200."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic. The food was good for airline food."
Cons: "The seats were narrow and seemed a bit smaller than usual."
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "I did not get vegetarian food. And when i book that ticket i didn't get the option of food selection..."
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment is quite good. Getting on the plane was a fine experience. The flight itself went smoothly."
Cons: "Boarding either didn’t announce my zone or didn’t do it clearly enough. The meal service was decent but I don’t think the crew came by with tea or coffee much. The seats were narrower than I recall from previous emirates flights. Information on connections were said to have been updated in the entertainment system, but were not updated in actual fact."
Pros: "They were very courteous and provided us with a solution with an overweight luggage so that we wouldn’t pay the extra fees. Flight was very smooth on the 777. Best flight ever."
Cons: "Nothing negative about this flight."
Pros: "Service was excelleny"
Cons: "The food was not up to the mark - the menu choice and combinations needs to be re-looked at for non-veg passengers. The choice of spirits was limited and not there at times. The flight attendants overall disposition towards the passengers needs to improve. - at times they forgot what was asked of them."
Pros: "Business class service is good"
Cons: "Economy service sucked . No attendants even after pressing buzzer 5 times in an hour . Had to go get the service on own . Few hostess were unfriendly. Most of the times the nonveg meals were over . This is not the first time . Every time they complain things in Menu are over . I am stuck to fly this airlines for mileage"

Pros: "The boarding was efficient."
Cons: "There were no vegetarian or vegan food options. The flight was crowded and uncomfortable."
Pros: "The airline was good, food fine, entertainment good, and seats comfy."
Cons: "The delay for boarding wasn't communicated good."
Pros: "Safety video was cool. Even in Arabic! The amenities were lovely — headphones, entertainment choices, bag with toothbrush, slippersox, etc. They elevated economy well above (the usual) steerage."
Cons: "Not having options beyond the menu; it wasn't clear where to ask for a vegetarian meal. The battle of carry-on v. coat storage is unseemly."
Cons: "Electronic entertainment is poor and the whole experience rather depressing no matter how hard the crew tries"
Pros: "Best entertainment system."
Cons: "Wifi didn't work. Seats could be more comfortable."
Pros: "Everybody was polity with smile the trip as good and"

Cons: "My entertainment screen wasn't responding well, which di annoy the passenger in front of me lol"
Pros: "One of the better experiences I've had on a plane"

Cons: "I didn't like the food after I hate the fish with rice I got sick sweating cold!!terrible experience!!"

Cons: "Too nosiness to hear movie"
Cons: "All was great"
Pros: "Leg room, seats reclining, kids movie selection."
Cons: "Food was horrific. Kids meal was just not Edible and smelled bad. By the time cabin crew reached our section there was no food selection. Bathrooms deteriorated through the flight and were not cleaned through a 10 hr flight. Paper towels and toilet toilet paper ran out two thirds of the way into the red-eye flight and bathrooms became non useable in the morning. Crew requires more training in upkeep of airplane on long-haul flights."
Pros: "Customer service, amenities like socks, sleeping mask, free headphones and free drinks were all excellent part of the trip."
Cons: "I'm a reasonable we'll traveled man who always flies economy class (unless I get a free upgrade or a great price to upgrade at check in). This is the most uncomfortable, cramped, and smallest seat I have ever flown in...first time flying Emirates...I certainly would never fly again and actual am haunted by the idea of the return flight in 10 days. Not worth it! I'd rather deal with possibly getting dragged off a United flight!"
Cons: "The staff was extremely rude and mean. They skipped me for food and had overall poor behavior. Worst international flight I've ever been on"
Pros: "The crew was incredibly welcoming and supportive. I was traveling with my daughter and they were so sweet to take pictures with her and bring her to the cockpit. The plane was state of the art and our flight was early. Now I see what everyone means when they say flying with Emirates is flying with among the best. Thanks Emirates."
Cons: "Maria was very rude and not pleasant."

I like the food but they don’t provide good service to serve and we missed the conecting flight

Snacks

Cons: "I got pulled aside and delayed my boarding because someone wanted to switch my seat. WHY do I have to be delayed for this? I felt it was very poor customer service. I. You can just print a list and ask at the aircraft's entrance."
Pros: "The tv size, charging station, foot hammock"
Cons: "No delay,"
Pros: "Flight attendants super sweet and really paid attention to any needs. Comfy seats, lots of movies to choose from and a tasty breakfast."
Cons: "Qantas need to improve thier overall customer service"
Cons: "For such a long flight should have given us more water. But were responsive when asked."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "That I was rebooked for a flight I showed up to before it took me off. Literally people that showed up after me got on the plane"
Pros: "The crew were really good, kept us informed about the delays and what was happening, and they all remained upbeat and chatty"
Pros: "Flight crew is great"
Cons: "Didn’t like the the whole check in process. None of the system worked. Manual check in all the way and took so long. Not enough staff to service."
Cons: "Not being able to web check in causes stress pre-flight."
Pros: "Detail and attention to peoples specific needs. Service prior to boarding and during were excellent"
Cons: "Service"
Cons: "1. Food option ran out quickly 2. The row I was sitting in had limited leg room (61)"
Pros: "I liked the grilled chicken and the beef selection"
Cons: "The actual greens in both salads were weak; soft not crisp and cut in large chunks nose that were hard to handle and not flavorful."
Cons: "My business class seat was the bulk head seat. I paid dearly for this ticket and was scheduled to do business in Sydney when we landed. Having both the bathroom and food prep just beside the bulk head seat means that the staff needs to mandate a quite environment so that those persons in those seats can sleep. The staff fraternized with the passenger and I was unable to sleep. I should have been warned about this seat selection. Also the curtain that separates the areas should provide more sound proofing ability. Devastated upon arrival. This was one of my worst Qantas experiences."
Cons: "Really unnecessary delays."
Cons: "Unnecessary delays"
Pros: "it was good to escape more than 3 hrs long, tiring journey to Sydney and also lesser wait period at Sydney"
Pros: "Great service on the flight."
Cons: "The boarding process with qantas at JFK is chaotic. No one is policed on their seat numbers, status or fare class. this creates a chaotic process for boarding and securing overhead luggage space for higher fare paying customers Very bad lounge at JFK if used to first lounges like Cathay and JAL"
Pros: "Mobile checkin, e-boarding pass, straight to the gate!"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "The crew were very polite and helpful given the stressful circumstances."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. One staff member trying to deal with a full flight of delayed and tired passengers. Given the delay out of NY (due to weather) connecting flight to melbourne was missed. Not happy that I was put on a flight to Sydney instead. Entertainment system is dated. Personal headphones don’t plug in and the interface was unresponsive. Expected better from qantas."
Cons: "Rigid with assigned infant seats. Would not move us to bassinet bulk head area though we would pay for it. Flight went well regardless."
Pros: "Attentive staff with great food. Only issue is seats in economy are a bit cramped."
Cons: "Seats a bit cramped in economy."
Pros: "Clean plane and polite crew"
Cons: "Left late and food was just average"
Pros: "Entertainment system had a good selection of tv. Pity the sound was affected by poor maintenance."
Cons: "Jack port for sound system damaged again. Horrible pullled pork sandwich. B737 is horribly uncomfortable to fly as it is too narrow especially where the seat is level with a fuselage rib. A330 is much better."
Cons: "They do not offer any options to passengers who have allergies i.e Onion and Garlic"
Pros: "Felt looks after by crew"
Cons: "Bathrooms were disgusting, plane was dirty"
Pros: "Movie selection was excellent"
Cons: "They missed giving me a chocolate!"
Pros: "Assistance is good."
Pros: "The interior of the seats a very nice. QANTAS blankets and cushions are comfortable. I also like the little drop down net under the seat for you feet to rest in. The QANTAS flight staff are great. I also like that they don't go down the aisle with trolleys a lot (just for the meals) and that they just come around with jug and cup for drinks."
Pros: "Great service. Perfect flight"
Cons: "Entertainment system was not working at my seat"
Cons: "I am a frequent flyer with QANTAS and a regular customer for many years. Why then do I get the worst seats on the aircraft (last row without reclining). These seats are often assigned to me and they are extremely uncomfortable. I booked a paid fare and did not claim points. My FF preferred seats are mid-plane, aisle. The screen had very poor contrast and it was like watching through cloth. To make it worse the entertainment system had very poor sound with long periods of frozen frames and staccato sound making it difficult to follow the plot. My wife's system (also FF) was the same. Not happy with the "special welcome" given to FF passengers!"
Pros: "Food was better than expected, recommend qantas to others based on this alone"
Cons: "Qantas safety video was to long... painful to watch. i would love ro see airlines start recycling the waste generated in fliht"
Cons: "I was surprised that we were flying a different carrier than Emirates"
Pros: "Not enough food"
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"
Pros: "Thoughtful and friendliness of the Crews"
Cons: "None that i can think of"
Pros: "Loved the two cords in the seat behind me and the iPad idea"
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "The complete lack of space between seats Old style plane Very average new movie selection"
Pros: "Everything was great about these flights, food and service included. We had a slight delay on our return flights but were updated along the way. Definitely recommend!"
Pros: "I arrived in Melbourne 9 hours after I was scheduled to. The flight was severely delayed out of NYC and then I missed my connection out of LA and flew to Sydney instead. I was offered a $20 voucher for food at jfk, and that was it."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "The plane was freezing cold even with multiple layers and a blanket"
Cons: "1. Flight 12 left 2 hours late from New York 2. Flight left 21/2 hours late from Los Angles 3. We asked to be seated on the tiles , as we are seniors we needed to get up regularly during the night (16 hour flight during the night) We were seated window and middle seats. The person on the aile was had a broken knee and was wheel- chaired on to the plane. As a result we could not get up to go to the bathroom. 4. Because we left late from Los Angles , we missed our connecting flight on to Auckland. Qantas was kind enough to apologise, put us on another flight and gave us vouchers worth a grand total of $10. 5. We then arrived 2 hours late in Auckland, where we missed our connecting flight to Wellington. 6. Our 2 bags that were checked-in at New York are still missing. This is being written 4 days left New York. 7. WE have since had to purchase new winter clothes."
Cons: "Delays"
Pros: "I liked receiving a menu of food options. I liked the movie selections (although there were better option from JFK>LAX than LAX>SYD)! Crew were friendly."
Cons: "Those with special meals receive their food way earlier than the rest of the plane."
Pros: "Staff obliging food excellent on time all good"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Entertainment Is always good"
Cons: "The five hour delay. Would have appreciated a phone call so I didn't have to get to the airport so soon. Food used to be so much better"
Pros: "Staff was courteous and the in flight food was good"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1 and a half hours to start with. Although the entertainment system on the plane is very good, half way through the flight it started having issues. Movies stopped playing and then the whole system locked up. First it was just individual seats that had problems but eventually the entire plane was unable to view anything. Even a complete reboot did not help. We spent the last 6hrs of the flight unable to view anything even though they repeatedly tried to reset the system"
Pros: "Food was amazing as was the crew"
Cons: "Seats get stuck and difficult to maneuver to the upright position."

Cons: "The seat was not comfortable, my back was hurting from a very short 2hr flight."

Pros: "service was consistent"
Cons: "Plane was unusually hot"
Pros: "Prompt on time service."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "The TV's on the back of the seats were nice."
Cons: "The threatening tone of the counter associates about last minute checking of your bags because they don't have enough space in the overhead cabins. Why offer everyone that option if they will force groups 7-9 to check them?"
Pros: "It was incident free."
Cons: "I can't comment on food. I didn't get any."
Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "everyone was friendly"
Pros: "Took me from point a to b. Some entertainment options, nothing spectacular."
Cons: "Toilets were dirty."
Pros: "Comfort and crew"
Cons: "Food."
Pros: "Great crew. So friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Why can't the crews in in LGA communicate with the passengers during the boarding process like at other airports so that it won't be a mad mob press to get on the plane. The gate agent using the PA didn't or couldn't enunciate, and folks just 15 feet away were asking what she said."
Pros: "Gate agent was very friendly and the flight boarded and departed on schedule"
Cons: "No dislikes about this flight. Everything went well"
Pros: "No complaints!"
Pros: "Smooth ride, checked in online, electronic boarding pass, going through security - a breeze. Was little apprehensive because I heard bad things about AA - my 1st experience was good."
Cons: "American Airlines has to be the worst airline I’ve ever traveled with. They canceled both of my flights and scheduled me for flights the next day each time. Customer service pretty poor. I opted to take a train instead. They didn’t reimburse me either. Awful"

Cons: "New cheap fare is honestly offensive trash."
Pros: "Boarding as quick and efficient. Staff were friendly and courteous"
Cons: "Nothing bad to comment on as the trip was a smooth trip"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flighr got delayed resting in connecting flight missing, AA didnt bother to comp the 6 hours of waiting by providing a hotel. Instead AA pretended to give a discount for a Hyatt which would end up costing 100 usd anyway, the same peice for hotels in that area anyone can fond on hotwire for 4+ hotels. Bad customer service, bad expectations management."

Pros: "Food was good"

Pros: "Everyone was pleasant & professional"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Good Airplane"
Cons: "Delays and baggage delayed"
Cons: "The plane supposedly was running out of fuel, which I've never heard of such thing. So we had to go down 20mns before reaching Charlotte to a nearby airport to get fueled up and then went back in the air. The whole ordeal made me miss my connection flight to Barcelona! And I wasn't able to get on a flight until the next day. To make matters worse I had to flight back to New York to catch the flight to Barcelona! Unbelievable. I was beyond disappointed. I chose American Airlines for a reason, a good one at that. Yet this happened."

Pros: "The crew's response was better than expected."
Cons: "Snacks were a bit too expensive."
Pros: "It is good"
Pros: "This time every thing excellent"
Cons: "The wifi prices are absolutely outrageous. In a time where hotels are giving wifi away for free bc it's baked in their pricing and costs the airline should be doing the same. It leaves a bitter taste of feeling nickel and dimed when you charge spears toy for this. Especially at $21 for a 3 hour flight. Seriously?"
Pros: "Good movie selection"
Cons: "The crew as in every AA flight could not care less about clients. Business class seats on dreamliner get shaked when adjacent passenger moves Got stolen a pen when being reviewed for liquids just before boarding"
Cons: "Entertainment was boring"
Pros: "It was exactly what I was looking for. Comfortable, easy and faster to board. I loved to be able to use the ticket on my phone as boarding pass, that made shorter the whole process."
Pros: "Left on time!"
Cons: "No peanut options for gluten free customers"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "First of all, we got on plane on time but had to wait 1h and 15 min to take off!!!ok that's the airport!!!They didn't even welcome us in plane.No food at all!Coke in plastic cup?Just this?No smile, not a blanket even air condition so strong!!!The manager of American Airlines should try to fly with Greek companies!And I don't mean with Olympic airways in Onassis time(with Coco Chanel suits the hall crew) but I mean now, in poor Greece's Aegean air which again and again wins the price of best airliner in Europe..Service, crew, foooood!!!Polite people..Blankets!!! I feel sorry for American Airlines..Ok we landed safe..Thank God, that's something..."
