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.

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.

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: "more room in the seats - excellent hostesses who are so friendly and helpful - lovely food."
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: "Nothing"
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: "Seating space was very good. Meals terrific"
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!"

Crew be more attentive to needs of passengers. I am not one to turn on my light but I will next time. I was sitting near the window so couldn’t get out to go ask for fluids. I was only offered 2 drinks the entire 12 hours. A second cup of tea would have been nice in the AM!

Efficient courtesy as it was and should be On time

Plane was late and caused me to miss my return ferry crossing with my vehicle I was bringing to timaru

I really appreciated the check in service at Heathrow airport - amazing they checked our luggage and gave our passes through to Chch NZ. Chairs were comfortable. Good leg room. While we appreciate the lounge, they could have offered a wider range of options (a few more vegan options).

Cons: "Waited 55 minutes for baggage claim in Auckland. No reason given. I expect better service from Air New Zealand even though I understand the baggage handler’s are different group"
Pros: "On time. Like the 787."
Cons: "The vegetarian evening meal."
Pros: "The employees of Air New Zealand always make our trips excellent."
Cons: "I always have trouble hearing the announcements in the waiting areas at the airports. Why can't they (airports) fix that."
Cons: "Please have the option to order Kosher meal!! The 1st air company that I use, that don’t offer this basic service!! Ridiculous!!"

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Food in business class and more choice of movies"
Cons: "Great flight. Would have been nice to have on board wifi."
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Pros: "Ground staff were particularly helpful"
Cons: "Is it possible to build in a way to tilt the seat bottom up at the front a bit so that when the back is reclined you don'get as sore a bum, and you don't slide forward as much. The seatback recline and headrest were very good."
Pros: "Outstanding crew -- attentive but not overbearing. Very pleasant for a 14-hour flight."
Pros: "None"

Pros: "The crew were pleasant and professional, and the aircraft was in excellent condition."
Cons: "Boarding through the rear door during the rain -- with an elderly couple ahead who had problems negotiating the stairs, leaving them and all behind them in the rain. The airline could have allowed everyone to board through the airbridge in light of the weather."
Pros: "The actual flight wasn’t terrible"
Cons: "I missed my initial flight...I was short on time and rushed to get to the gate so I didn’t recheck my bag. Got there and told they moved me because my bag hadn’t been checked."
Pros: "Clean modern plane, on-time, nice Regional lounge"
Pros: "Window seat liked it"
Cons: "About baggage didnt liked it... And no food too we didnt came across these to book it while booking tickets .. And passport recognization in sydney troubled a lot us for re checking and identification of our faces to passport ...it was irritating as if we r some wrong we did ..passport photo was without usage or somehow it was like dat not clear picture of us... Maybe due to moist it was like dat...no one was listening to us and made us to wait for long time ."
Pros: "Friendly team on board"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "bummed I couldn't even opt in or purchase wifi. being self-employed and having such long flight - its just a missed opportunity. the screens were hard to even see. it just kind of felt like an old, dirty airline."

Pros: "Friendly prompt service!"
Pros: "Awesome customer service, I was impressed."
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: "Air New Zealand check-in as well as counter personnel were professional and courteous."
Cons: "Booked through Kayak with what I thought was an equivalent Expedia ticket but was horrible surprised when I checked-in. Two other fellow travelers booked flight VA 7516 through Expedia for $218 (USD) one-way. I was able to open the same flight / departure time / price with Expedia but could not book. I then switched to Kayak and located this same flight (as I wanted to travel together with them), and it was for approximately same price. Upon check-in I was told it would cost $120 to check my luggage in (which I reluctantly paid). They indicated my ticket did not include this. I later discussed this with my two travelers and their check-in luggage plus a meal were included with their Expedia (Virgin Australia) ticket. Why was my Kayak (Virgin Australia) ticket so different from Expedia when our bookings were done about the same time? I no longer trust Kayak for future bookings."

Cons: "Engine noise at times drowned out the sound system"

Pros: "Not a problem, anywhere. For a long day, that is appreciated."
Pros: "The space sllocated is grossly inadequate security is overcrowed Dave not aware of poor image this gives thr city that of a rural enclave"
Cons: "Ovetcrowed no space"

Pros: "Fantastic crew!"
Pros: "Free cookie!"
Pros: "They put me on a flight to Auckland and then a flight to Wellington"

Pros: "The best ever business class check in and superior lounge and breakfast."
Pros: "It was a short flight"
Cons: "You had to pay for 3/4ths of the movies and shows. Kayak didn't specify whether I had a checked bag or not so when I got to the airport I had to fork over $120! I had no choice because I'm not going to leave my luggage behind. I was not pleased with this third party booking."
Pros: "Smoothe flight"

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"

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.

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"

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."

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"

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"
Pros: "Very impressed. Will definitely fly with them more often in the future. A little confused with the max weight of baggage. Website was not so soecific."

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 paid extra for a more leg room seat however, my seat didn’t recline. It was a full flight so I was cramped up for the whole 3 hours. Also they delayed the flight by an hour just to locate a couple of passengers, unload and reload their bags. There were mothers with babies and I found that unfair to have delayed a flight for some careless passengers.

The water bottle and good headphones is a good feel-good factor for the those that like it. The entertainment system and touch screen needs some work. Would’ve loved snacks available for pick up. There were none when I went - twice.

Pros: "screen, ubs charger"
Cons: "be more careful with luggage; 8 flights on this trip and it would be this last one that my luggage cover was lost, and it wasn't a cheap one."
Cons: "The food service was not great. They should increase the frequency of meals. Got the worst seats both time. The seats are old and recliner doesn’t come forward as it should"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and professional. The aircraft was clean and well maintained. Food and entertainment were great."
Cons: "Completely satisfied."

Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Slightly more legroom"
Pros: "Free entertainment when it actually worked."
Pros: "Keith the baby whisperer. Who took the babies one by one from there clueless mothers and stopped them crying and screaming. Kieth deserves his own commercial."
Cons: "The food and the seat comfort."
Cons: "Flight attendant kept forgetting to turn the entertainment back on after an announcement. Flight attendant sounded unprofessional over PA Would like more snacks - savoury and sweet, instead of just savoury. Snack was not sufficient for a 3 hour flight landing at 9pm. Had to wait on plane while airbridge was brought to the plane so everyone could disembark - “they weren’t expecting the flight!!” Whole flight still waiting for luggage after 55 minutes of standing at carousel and only after 55 minutes an announcement to say handlers are tending to a departure and we have to wait another 10 minutes - a whole hour for luggage - take carry on only next time!!!! 4 flights collecting luggage from the one carousel!!"
Pros: "Staff, seat (exit seet)"
Cons: "The Q streaming app has limited options and a nuisance to use. Better to have screens on back of seats as of old or at least a better selection on the streaming service."
Pros: "Excellent customer service !! Great crew down the back !!! (Except they didn’t want to take my banana peel when collecting rubbish?). Will have to carry off plane which is annoying ?!?"
Cons: "Entertainment system not working for our row of seats"
Cons: "food wasn't good"
Pros: "Flight attendants where quality in their delivery of service Food was good (Chicken salad)"
Cons: "Staff that maned the gate clearly a novice or untrained. His coworker seemingly not bothered if the job was done correctly or not. Resulting in multiple bags being lost. And not just mine, at least 4 people had baggage lost due to lack of care and attention Absolutely dier."
Cons: "Disembarking.... No gate so had to get bus to shuttle to terminal... 1 bus for nearly 1000 passengers.... Took nearly 90 minutes to get off plane."
Cons: "Food was awful."
Cons: "We were booked for a connecting flight we could not possiblely have made given we had to go through customs, immigragion and baggage claim. We had to catch a later flight which was then delayed because none of the toilets worked."

Pros: "Fine, but completely unmemorable."
Pros: "Crew was great, friendly and accommodating. Food was good for airline food"

Pros: "Staff were friendly. Enjoyed getting a meal included in the ticket for everyone."
Cons: "Could be more of a range of movies to watch"
Pros: "The staff are some of the best in the sky"
Cons: "The usual riff raff amongst passengers"
Pros: "Food on Qantas is better than domestic U.S. carriers and it's nice to still experience good service."
Cons: "It is frustrating that most airlines never leave on time anymore. They should be required to pay each passenger $50 for every 15 minutes they are late. It's also terrible that seats have become so cramped. My biggest fear is to drop something at my feet because then I can never reach it. Sigh."
Pros: "Great crew, meals were good."
Cons: "Flight delayed three hours."
Cons: "Awful baggage claim process. Plane has landed for one hour and still no mention of which belt you can retrieve it. Qantas is horrible in customer service."
Pros: "The land crew helped get us onto an earlier flight without hesitation."

Pros: "on time friendly team comfy seats"
Cons: "Coach food is typically not good, but I've had a few coach experiences that were impressive. GOOD is a good rating for their good for coach."
Pros: "Qantas rarely disappoint! I have been flying with them for almost 35 years and I don't recall a bad flight"
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind"
Pros: "Overall, one of the best international flying experiences I have ever had."
Cons: "They did not have vegetarian food in spite of my request."
Pros: "Overall everything was great, flights were on time, boarded efficiently, staff very friendly."
Cons: "I think the service of offering passengers to order their food online prior to the flight is nice, but in practice is inefficient and frustrating at service time. We chose not to order in advance as we didn't know what we wanted. I was annoyed and frustrated to have to wait for the crew to go to and fro with meals and drinks to the pre-ordered customers before being offered our meal. I imagine that if the entire flight preordered their meal, it was also not work so well..."
Pros: "Our boarding & flight crew were excellent. They went above & beyond to help us through the delay that ocutred due to engine cover repairs."
Cons: "I was told LAX would have corrected flight/boarding info upon arrival. They did not. They made us wait & go through 2 lines that made us miss any connection home. The rep was inexperienced & slow. I had to spend the night in LA & had to pay someone $500 to work at my store in my stead. Ended up negative experience. ."
Pros: "Great selection of entertainment. Good pillows."
Cons: "I had a flight Auckland-London, booked through Emirates but operated by Qantas. The flight got to London with a delay of 2 hours 20 min, because they made us wait 2 hours 20 min more than planned in Dubai, where incidentally all the other Emirates flights had no delay, only our Qantas one. This made me lose my next flight (to Luxembourg) and have to pay for a new flight and stay that night in London. Since I had booked them separately, no one helped or offered any compensation."
Pros: "The crew was always helpful and friendly."
Cons: "The kind chap behind me who insisted he had to bounce my seat every time he made contact with the entertainment screen. All night long. In hindsight, I should have asked to be moved."
Cons: "Delays at the airport Economy very uncomfortable Crappy food"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The seat cushions are stiff and uncomfortable. And the seat backs were in my face the whole time."
Cons: "cabin has too many seats on the lower deck."
Pros: "As I stated previously, I am blind and found the special assistance Qantas offers invaluable. Every crew member I interacted with was polite, thoughtful, warm, attentive, and extremely helpful."
Pros: "I liked that they accommodated my dietary restrictions"
Cons: "I didn't like the seating. It was really cramped"
Cons: "Only one channel of audio was playing--made listening to Tubular Bells just plain WRONG..."
Pros: "It was a Qantas flight not an Emirates flight for your correct information."
Cons: "I was hoping to be on board an Emirates plane notQantas msybe another time"
Cons: "food was probably the worst airline food that I have ever tried to eat. Wasn't even able or wanted to eat it."

Fabulous airline e and great lounge!

Excellent service all staff where very friendly patient and efficient solved a boarding problem for me due to me not being able to access the visa portal for the USA.

Pros: "Crew was so helpful"
Cons: "Food ...special ordered food didnt make it in any flight. And quality of food needs bit improvement"
Cons: "Very happy traveller"
Cons: "The seats were broken - did not stay reclined. Also the seat pocket had gaping holes in them - couldn't place anything properly."
Pros: "super friendly crew making sure u had snacks and drinks ,smiling the whole time. thank.you!"
Cons: "maybe if i could hve plugged inmy own headphines but no big deal. thank you!"
Pros: "The crew had a good attitude for the flight."
Cons: "Felt like this being a 8 hour flight there would be some entertainment on the plane , just radio. Also there was no food options from what I saw available either."
Pros: "The crew were welcoming, friendly, and accommodating."
Cons: "The plane is old and had no screens, so there was no entertainment option."
Pros: "The crew was amazing! The seats in a business class were very uncomfortable."
Cons: "It’s hard to compare after my recent flight on Emirates which was superb."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "I slept most of the way"
Pros: "Nothing was real impressive but nothing really bad for a budget airline."
Cons: "the food, entertainment options (movies) the service including drinks, the plane itself and the overall airline could all be much better."
Cons: "Nice crew. Newer airplane"
Pros: "Comfort was decent."
Cons: "Late due to crew."
Pros: "Can't beat that. Bigger seat, better leg room, comfortable seats."
Cons: "None."
Pros: "Pleasant, fast, and efficient process"
Cons: "Leg space cramped for my tall husband"
Pros: "I have been traveling at least 4 times in a year for last 20 years. I never had such a worst staff specially the Msnager of Fiji airline ground staff at Sydney airport named Christopher. Such a rude ignorant person. The amount of luggage including baby stroller I traveled from Los Angeles to Nadi. Nadi to Sydney was perfectly fine. When I checkin from Sydney to los angles, the Fiji manager said you have to pay for stroller. I said I came all the way from Los Angeles to Sydney like that and I even showed the tags too, Christopher said Sydney has different policy. I left the stroller to him and Saud to him keep it for your kids and came back home without baby stroller."
Cons: "Worst Fiji ground staff at Sydney airport"
Pros: "Service is nice. Very friendly. Food is good."
Pros: "crew very helpful"
Cons: "larger meal would be niice"
Pros: "Friendly helpful staff. Loved the leg from Nandi to Auckland."
Cons: "Having to repack our bags when the total among the three of us flying was within limits. And then still having to pay an extra $60 US. when we didn't get it quite right by about 2 ks. However you did let my wife's wheelchair on without payment thanks for that. I am an ex pilot so it is difficult for your staff to try and explain weight ratios, and the dangers of extra weight.. Then being made to take 1 point something kilos into another lighter bag. However the staff were very good about it. not their fault that they find themselves having to talk through something that just doesn't ad up. However we enjoyed the flight, and the help we received transferring from a very late plane to one almost waiting in Fiji. :-)"
Cons: "planes seats dirty chewing gums stuck on seats talking of entertainment not everyone will prefer to watch what is being played there arw children and elderly thats needs to be considered"
Pros: "Sorry the flight was cancelled"
Pros: "Had an extra seat to strech out."
Pros: "Fiji Airways price"
Cons: "I don’t know what the use is of bashing this airlines on their horrible service because they don’t improve. They cancelled my flight and would not put me on a flight to NAD or provide accommodations UNTIL I argued about how the flight change was NOT my fault but theirs and disagreed to pay extra."
Pros: "Great crew and vegetarian options for every meal!"
Cons: "No personal monitors at seats"
Pros: "They had vegetarian options at every in-flight meal. Heaven! Flight staff were all extremely attentive and polite."
Cons: "Seats are cramped (as with most budget travel) and entertainment options were not very good. Movies were mainly very old and games not very interesting."
Pros: "Excellent service, excellent food"
Cons: "Very limited leg room"
Cons: "They was a great selection but many seemed old and B-grade."
Pros: "The way we were boarded."
Cons: "Seating was uncomfortable and meals were tasteless"
Pros: "By far the best flight attendents. Friendly, sincere and happy - the staff was outstanding."
Cons: "The only thing I didn’t like was the food. It badly needs a revamp."
Cons: "Fiji airways lost about a third of the baggage on our flight and no representatives would give us any information. Then when we were sent to file a claim for lost luggage, no one was at the office for another hour. While I understand things happen, the way that they handled this situation was completely awful."
Cons: "The seat were not that comfortable!"
Pros: "This flight was cancelled due to storms in the Pacific. Fiji Airways put passengers into a hotel and paid for meals."
Cons: "Fiji Airways had poor communication with us about our onward flights, causing us to wonder what was going on. In the end, we were scheduled through another airline 3 days after our flight was scheduled to leave."
Pros: "Nothing to like."
Cons: "Cancelled the flight going to Christmas Island and wouldn’t reschedule until the following week. Trip that was planned for almost 2 years never happened. At least they could have tried the following day but I guess it was a financial decision and not one made with customer service in mind. I would never fly on them except they’re the only game in town to reach Kiribati."
Pros: "Fiji Airways is among the top airlines for the long haul routes. New aircraft, clean cabins, fine entertainment and the friendliest crew you can find. They are consistently great."
Pros: "Foods"
Cons: "Poor communications between crews and passengers"
Cons: "There was no leg room. Also, the flight was about 1.5 hrs late departing, which almost caused me to miss my next flight."
Pros: "I really appreciated how the crew enforced window shades down for the majority of the flight. It really helped me sleep like I was hoping to so that I can be better adjusted to the time change and reduce jet lag."
Cons: "Airport crew rude"
Cons: "Narrow aisles"
Pros: "Everything except food"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Comfort of "quiet zone" seating which was an extra $149 per person."
Cons: "Check in clerk and Manager were not very helpful. Check in was a nightmare with no organization for preferred flyers. Boarding was also disorganized and chaotic."
Cons: "The legroom and my touchscreen was unresponsive - had to press the button multiple times."
Pros: "On time. Good people."
Cons: "Business class seat could be better"
Pros: "Happy crew with genuine Fiji Hospitality"
Cons: "Food was basic Limited choices on IFE"
Pros: "Who sells Business tickets to parents with 18 month old children? Paid extra to arrive in Fiji rested and relaxed. No surprises h thing. Kid screamed off and on the entire trip. Row right behind us. Flight crew was excellent."
Cons: "Food was mediocre. Seats are flat but not horizontal."
Pros: "Good movie selection. Cozy blankets (I'd love to buy one). Overall nice facilities. Smooth flight most of the way through."
Cons: "The flight was unusually warm. Other passengers asked the A/C be turned up but I didn't notice much difference after. The food selection was poor compared to the usual offerings I've seen with Fiji Airways. Dinner's side dishes were a hard roll, chocolate coconut dessert thing, and slice of cake. I was hoping for fruit and/or a salad. Food service was a little slow."
Pros: "free food and wine and beer"
Cons: "Entertainment was poor with old screens coming down from the ceiling. No choice of movies."
Cons: "Also missed this flight."
Cons: "Boarding passes were not properly issued causing us to miss connection in LA. Flight left Nadi an hour late and although pilot indicated time would be made up, a 10+ hour flight resulted in less than 15 minutes of time made up. There is no possible reason a flight of this length could not make up the entire deficiency. We were told customer service reps would be available for passengers with tight connections. The customer service rep basically told us there was nothing she could do since we had to go thru customs. Will never fly this airline again. Fly to New Zealand previously on Air New Zealand and will use them in future. Price difference is not worth the service deficiencies."
Pros: "Entertainment was awesome!"
Cons: "Leg room I paid for actually feels like room on my normal domestic flights. Need more 'leg room'. The food is so processed, it's beyond horrible. It was not edible to me. Boarding was chaotic and unorganized. Too cold on the plane."
