Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew was super nice and the food was good (for plane food)! Really appreciated that they had snacks and chocolate on hand for hungry passengers throughout the flight. A 17 hour plane ride is never the best, but Singapore Air made it as pleasant as possible. Also, we booked on Kayak and was routed through a third party vendor JustFly, which I was a little worried about - but our booking went off without a hitch."
Pros: "the crew is fine. The seat was OK standard."
Cons: "Food was not good on my way back to L.A. Food was no flavor, pork cut up way too big, prefer having small piece of meat soaked up flavor sauce."
Cons: "Poor customer service and lack of care for loyal passengers"
Pros: "checking in at Changi Airport is always a pleasure, helpful friendly staff"

Pros: "Ok boarding, plane was new, entertainment system was up to date"
Cons: "Premium economy service is even worse than economy as crew is never around and busy in economy. Seats are bigger but not really comfortable. Food is same as economy. Doesn't worth it to buy premium economy."

Pros: "On time Smooth landing and take off Airport was beautiful, nice clean toilets Lovely and polite staff on board Food was okay Nice range of in-flight entertainment"
Cons: "Air port does not have automatic internet connection We were there for 8 hours with no internet because we had no international roaming to receive the PIN via SMS. The four PINS generated by the counter staff did not work. We all took turn to try to no avail. by then we have walked too far from the counter we could not be bother going back. No airport that I've been to had poor internet service connection like this airport, yet it is supposed to be THE WORLD'S NUMBER ONE AIRLINE. We boarded at 11.30pm, last time we flew with them they gave us supper. Last night they gave us only water. We went to sleep hungry till the morning. Since when they started to operate like those cheap airlines that you have to pay for your food? And the night package did not have eye mask.... how could we sleep... ? Singapore airline could learn from Qtar. Very very disappointed."

Cons: "We ask for wheelchair help from Perth to brooome but it was not provided ."
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: "Wow they did not disappoint flight attendants Overdid themselves with amazing service planes are super clean and entertainment systems are state of the art great job Singapore Airlines can’t wait to fly with you again you definitely earned your #1 ranking"
Pros: "Food was pretty good. Loved the Weiss ice cream bars"
Cons: "Most uncomfortable seat ever. Wouldn't recline. TVs small and poor quality. Sound patchy. Not a pleasant flight. Must have been an old plane."
Pros: "The cabin crew were fantastic. Food was abundant. Most boarding systems worked well. Choosing seats was confusing on website so we were allocated seating. The newer planes had a fantastic touch screen entertainment system. The seats on the newer planes were much more comfortable and roomy"

Cons: "No negative points"
Cons: "Way too cold"
Pros: "Boarding was better handled in Singapore - but then that’s Singapore! All very smooth and French champagne served on the flight all the way home! The Kayak website is excellent and I wouldn’t hesitate to use it again - $1,000 cheaper for the flight from Moscow to Singapore than what I could get direct from Singapore Airlines! Well done Kayak!"

Cons: "Food was a bit too rich, maybe a lighter option in the menu would be useful as both were quite thick sauces."
Pros: "The crew member in my section was amazing, he went out of his way to greet each and everyone of us individually. The flight was comfortable, boarding a breeze and on time!"
Pros: "The seats are comfortable. I was fortunate to have a gap in the middle seat. On my flight there was a delay due to a person needing to disembark before the flight took off. The flight dealt with the person inconsiderately and explained to everyone the reason for the delay."
Cons: "Nothing. The flight was efficiently run and seats comfortable."
Pros: "Crew were great!"
Pros: "Staff friendly and helpful"
Cons: "My seat 57E could not be adjusted but half way through the flight was given another seat and managed to get some sleep. In our experience Air New Zealand is tops."
Pros: "The economy seats are pretty comfy considering so many other airlines, however it does make it a bit difficult to eat with a knife and fork at meal times. But the idea of a recliner seat is great! Decent in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Maybe a little more space to be able to eat a little comfortably would help. But I can understand that it's an infrastructural change that might not be possible."
Pros: "The crew is amazing. Always friendly, smiling and happy to oblige. Love the New Zealand hospitality. The inflight entertainment has so many programmes to watch, and the list of music options to listen in to is well stocked. Food is excellent. Obviously overate in the 9 1/2 hour flight."

Cons: "Better meal as the meat dish was a bit cold when it arrived."
Pros: "A whole season of New Girl!"

Pros: "Punctual flight, great boarding and great baggage service."
Cons: "Bag drop could be improved with more personnel to help."

Cons: "The departure was 20 minutes late (not too much), which delayed the arrival in NZ by the same amount."
Pros: "The staff was very helpful"
Cons: "The plane was delayed for more than one hour which we did not have sufficient time for transfer to LA. We have to run instead of walking."
Cons: "Crew was so busy that they kept overlooking my husband and I when doing the rounds of everything, We felt like we were singled out to be ignored, even though we paid for Premium Economy. Our flight was delayed for more than an hour. Food was barely ok even though we had been on Air NZ Premium economy 4 times now, was sorely disappointed with the food provided."

Pros: "I LOVED my flight to LA PERFECT The flight from LA to Auckland was not as good, seating fine, LOVED THE CHECK IN LOVED THE PHONE SERVICE when i called to increase my weight of luggage..."
Cons: "I could not hear the entertainment because engine too loud I did not experience this on my flight to LA , I found the crew were not as pleasant as the crew to LA, could be that they were tired, if i had to rate NZ Airline from my trip to LA.... I would be shouting my pleasrure and did while in LA coming back truly was a different experience however going was so good... I will gladly fly again"
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: "I love the entertainment system. The airline attendants uniforms are very colourful."
Pros: "Service was very good despite our one hour delay! Everyone was appropriately apologetic though."
Cons: "Flight was one hour delayed not due to equipment but because the ground crew failed to load the cargo in time! That was annoying. (Then an ill patient had to be removed resulting in a further delay trying to retrieve her luggage.) I felt bad for those with tight connections."
Pros: "Great flight with wonderful service."
Pros: "It was a very pleasant surprise to receive an upgrade at the boarding gate to a Skycouch. While I was too tall to make use of it my wife was able to use two thirds of it and get a good sleep. The flight attendants were excellent, friendly, warm attentive presenting the very best of Kiwi hospitality."
Cons: "Nothing - everything was a shining example as to why Air New Zealand continues to be rated so highly."
Pros: "arrived early at destination ground crew helpful with seating"
Pros: "Most of the flight attendants were helpful and friendly"
Cons: "One of my pet dislikes would be when some passengers have oversized carryon luggage that take up all the room in the overhead compartment of their own and the next one! My bag was about 3 compartments in front of me, which I didn’t mind, until someone tried to claim my bag as theirs..."
Pros: "Very smooth, uneventful flight, perfect, in other words"

Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "The chicken pasta meal was pretty dried out and terrible"
Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Vegetarian options were all very similar. Over a 32 hour flight time I was provided with beans for breakfast/lunch and dinner. I would have preferrred more variety. Also being seated between two others was quiet uncomfortable for a long journey flight."
Pros: "The crew were very pleasant and the meal was delicious. The flight was really smooth and most comfortable. Not quite the same leg room as the e dreamer."
Pros: "Excellent gluten free meal offered! I appreciate the extra effort with providing a gf bun and muffin with most meals!"

Pros: "Staff were very good . Business class very comfortable. I had low salt menu which was very comforting to be able to choose as salt not good for me."
Pros: "The cabin crew was very attentive throughout the long flight, offering water and orange juice often. Good selection of movies was available."
Cons: "Can't think of anything, everything was very good."
Cons: "I bought my seat assignment in advance, and they did not give me this seat on the plane. Before boarding, I asked at the gate if my new seat was a window--which is what I paid for--and they confirmed yes, my new seat was a window. Turns out, it was not, it was a middle seat. I asked a flight attendant to relocate me to a window seat, which she kindly did, however this seat was quite uncomfortable as I was seated next to a large gentleman who probably should have been required to purchase two seats. Overall, there were two issues with Qatar Airways during this trip: they did not give me the seat I had requested and paid for, and then lied when I asked if my new seat was a window."
Cons: "coffee is to strong and to many spicy foods"
Pros: "Food was good and crew"
Cons: "Old aircraft from Doha to Dhaka."
Pros: "Everything normal as expected on an economy class nothing special."
Cons: "Firstly If the meals we pre booked were actually given to us. Secondly what’s the point of giving menus to coustomer to choose their meal when food availability is limited. Don’t set false expectations to your customer when you can’t deliver on them."
Pros: "Nothing to like on that flight."
Cons: "Very poor customer service, Qatar Airways should be ashamed of providing worst than third world kind service in the Doha - Dhaka route."
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "it would be better if the flight departure on the scheduled time"
Pros: "The A330, despite being an old plane, had really good recline."
Cons: "The entertainment was very outdated."

Pros: "aircraft so silent"
Cons: "the flightvwas so turbulent and it was full. imagine standing 12 hoyrs next to some stranger who's Going to sleep and fell on you. Upgrade to Business class eas not available..."

Cons: "Good was poor bcz going and back was same menu of choice of food."

Pros: "The entertainment was reasonable, I enjoyed the festive choices."
Cons: "Screaming babies, obese people sat next to me, water rationing, not a pleasant experience. Arrived sleep deprived and dehydrated. I have much better experiencs on a visit to Australia - this was my third time this year!"
Pros: "The entertainment was reasonable, I enjoyed the festive choices."
Cons: "Screaming babies, obese people sat next to me, water rationing, not a pleasant experience. Arrived sleep deprived and dehydrated. I have much better experiencs on a visit to Australia - this was my third time this year!"
Pros: "The service was excellent & food satisfying."
Cons: "The liquor variety could be better."
Pros: "Everything really.They run the airline very smoothly and professionally from boarding to disembarking."
Cons: "They tempt you with so much food lol although some of the food wasnt too appealing.toilets very clean and seemed to stay that way throughout long 17hr flight.good leg room for a long legged guy like me.felt sorry for lady with two young children.She could have been allocated better seats."
Pros: "Fabulous service from start to finish Excellent cabin, spacious & impeccably clean Super choice of food and drinks We travelled in the business cabin which I have to say, rivals many so-called 'First Class' products. The crew were courteous, addressing us by name and nothing was too much trouble."
Cons: "Boarding at Bali Airport is chaotic. This can hardly be attributed to Qatar Airways but this needs to be sorted out. When boarding began, it started with "Group 1" rather than business and other priority customers. It ended up rather chaotic with boarding halted at the end of the escalator causing a very uncomfortable situation as people struggled to get off the escalator."
Pros: "The leg room was huge, the food was excellent and a lot and the customer service was great not my first time to fly with Qatar and it won’t be my last, the made my trip worthwhile. Thank you"
Cons: "No complaints great flight"
Pros: "Food and flight attendants were excellent in Business Class"

Pros: "Very polite and friendly crew. Very helpful."
Cons: "Did not have the duty free item I wanted in stock"

Cons: "Space of the seat and the ground crews(aiports) how come their less friendly than the crew on board!"
Pros: "Qatae Airways is second to non as always"
Pros: "I loved the service. All of the attendants were really nice and helpful."
Cons: "My tv on both 12 hr and 8 hr flights didn’t work well and the food wasn’t the best. Also they ran out of food options when they got to me twice."
Pros: "Overall a good service with good food."
Cons: "When flying from New Zealand to Doha, we departed Auckland at 15h25 and due to the time zone, most passengers body clocks would have been expecting sleep within a few hours. However we were flying West and thus into daylight. Sadly the window seated passengers were not asked to close their window blinds to block out the sunlight and many were left open. This made the cabin very bright and a difficult environment in which to sleep. Too much advertising before the on board videos, but otherwise content was good."
Pros: "Went out of their way to be helpful"
Pros: "I appreciated the friendly and always service minded staff. The plane was clean and I enjoyed good leg room. I was happy with the menus and the film selection was entertaining and current. All over a great experience and I would not hesitate to choose Qatar again."
Pros: "Excellent service from check in to disembarkation. I was surprised at the amount of leg room, as being a 6+ footer it has always previously been an issue, but not with Qatar."
Cons: "Only downside was the lack of the free traveller pack, eye shade and ear plugs, sleep was denied as I could not block out the sound of the very talkative travellers behind me."
Pros: "crew was excellent, very attentive"
Cons: "food - i am not a fussy eater but it's as if qatar tries do please too many tastes and does not suceed at any. why not have middle eastern food choices too? but then i guess you can't argue with the price"
Pros: "First time flying on Qatar and must say that the crew was excellent. One of the best crews I have ever flown in the last 22 years of New York - India sector. Special mention for HAIFA my hostess for flight QR702 on April 12th. She was the best hostess I have ever had!"
Cons: "The food wasn’t bad but since I flew Etihad in July 2017 from New York to Abu Dhabi to Mumbai and back my memories were fresh and Egihad’s food was definitely a notch higher."
Pros: "The plane had everything I could want."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the plane was late, prompting me to miss my connecting flight. These things happen, I understand, but most upsetting was the fact that Qatar Airways provided very little information to those of us missing our flights. While on the plane, when those of us with short layovers mentioned that we may be late, we were told "you'll be fine - they hold the planes for a bit." When we deboarded the plane from New York, we ere wrangled into groups depending on our destinations. Many of us assumed that we were going to be taken to our next flights as we had been told they would be waiting for us. The airline rep in charge of my group refused to tell us any information, however, only admitting after we got confrontational with her that we had missed our flights. She then offered no information about what would happen to us, telling us we'd find out when we got to the rebooking counter. Very unprofessional. I was told that I would have to wait for another 24 hours for the next flight, necessitating that I would spend the night in Qatar. I was put up in a hotel that was decent, but again that offered very little in terms of customer service. We were given an $80 meal allowance, but despite me not using it, I was nickeled and dimed in other aspects to where I ended up paying $20 to help reschedule a flight that I had missed in my destination country. The whole ordeal was a nightmare and mostly due to poor communication and very cold, almost robotic interactions with the QA staff on the ground in Doha."
Cons: "Even though we landed in Doha before our connection left ( barely-20 min)on Qatar airways, they would not hold the connecting flight for the 7 of us who were connecting. This was extremely disappointing as we then lost a full 8 hours of our first day arrival. If they schedule you for a 45 minute connecting flight, I suggest you book a later one. Our flight from NYC left on time but was 20 min late landing. Their only compensation to us all was use of the airport lounge in Doha ( quite nice with free food wine and showers, but would rather have had the extra day in Bali."
Pros: "Excellent service..!"
Cons: "Connecting Qatar flight should have been held, instead wen had to spend 9 hours in the airport until next flight"
Pros: "The food was great!"
Cons: "The way the crew member woke me up for lunch or dinner time.They tapped my shoulder and was pretty disturbed me. If good if you have a sign that we can put next to our seat if we don’t want to be disturbed while we sleep."
Pros: "comfortable seats good service"
Pros: "The food was great with three options for each meal and there were a lot of options for in flight entertainment"

Cons: "The neck rest was a bit tall and deep for a shorter person with a smaller neck - it caused me some discomfort while trying to rest."
Pros: "Great food, great help when travelling with baby, affordable price. Entertainment system was a bit annoying with unusable unresponsive touchscreen and unintuitive menu."
Pros: "Crew was good, they were trying hard to keep customers happy."
Cons: "Limited food selection on top they ran out of available options so basically only one beef option was given. Either u like it or not. Pretty old movies in entertainment section, broken seat controls, charging ports and headphone inputs. No clear announcements by captain."
Pros: "Very crowded flight but still had room. Amazing and and easy to use entertainment. Super friendly staff. Comfortable seats. Exactly what I have come to expect from this amazing airline."
Cons: "The food could use some work. It is still better than most other airlines but not as good as most high schools. However, you will not go hungry because they make sure that you stay and hydrated on their flights. I do dislike all the dogs that are allowed in planes. Now flights have babies crying coupled with dogs barking. Takes away from the overall ambiance that Qatar tries so hard to achieve."
Pros: "Late departure but kept informed. Food good."
Pros: "This flight and seat was definitely more comfortable than going to HongKong- space was ver cramped before."
Cons: "Vegetarian meals can be better, breakfast eggs get over cooked and rice also."
Pros: "The crew went above and beyond the meet my needs. I requested the Cathay draft beer Betsy which wasn't loaded, unfortunately, but the crew managed to find one in economy."
Cons: "It was annoying the entertainment content on the A350 and 777-300ER were slightly different. I was watching a show but could not finish it."
Cons: "Unprofessional boarding stuff in jfk ,not helpful & one of them was really rude.but cabin crew are nice . I will never recommend to anyone & I don’t think so I will travel again cathey pacific airlines.thanks"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Flight delayed and then cancelled NO COMMUNICATION WHATSOEVER as to what was going on. We finally got rebooked in another flight on a Chinese airline at 2:30am so we had to stay at jfk for a total of about 24 hours with no compensation for our time and troubles. Horrible. Experience!"
Pros: "The crew was nice and friendly, food was ok"
Cons: "Food should request order by the crew, rather then trolly push like an old style"
Pros: "Crew was really good and the seating was quite okay"
Cons: "Seating distance"
Cons: "About cabin crew for for more smile"
Pros: "The crew were friendly, the entertainment on offer was broad and appealed to all passengers. The meal choices were very good, I requested the LFML options and all were good except for the light evening snack at the end of our second flight which was somewhat lacking in flavours and variety."
Cons: "The seats in economy felt cramped on the Boeing 700-300ER, with not much room to recline. This impacted on ability to fully relax and rest on such a long journey. This improved on the Airbus 350 thankfully, which much more leg room."
Pros: "CX crews are professional as they are very customer oriented"
Cons: "The ground services in Melbourne airport was really bad! Chaotic arrangements for boarding and especially unpleasant staffs!"
Pros: "Food& Beverage :)"

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Seat on up position are too straight"

We arrived hongkong and was informed that our flight has been rebooked even though we can see that the plane was still there and staffs are still at the gate. We were transferred to a layover flight from HongKong to Aussie then Aussie to Auckland instead of going straight. Seats was set far apart with no competitions at all. Sorry is not enough for this big hassle."
Cons: "Original itinerary was not followed. Plane from manila to hongkong left late and was transferred to a different flight for hongkong to Auckland .Seats not even together. Was put on 2 lay overs instead of just 1 (hongkong to Aussie then Aussie to Auckland. With no compensation at all. Sorry is not enough."
Cons: "Delayed departure"
Pros: "Little more leg room!"
Pros: "All went to schedule and flight attendants very good"
Pros: "The service from start to finish was superb. The flight to Hong Kong had the on board attendants at full service the whole journey. Blankets and pillows were supplied as standard and plenty of complimentary food. There was a genuine sense that the on board attendants wanted you to be as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "I can't think of anything really. Perhaps the seats could have slightly more leg room but hey. What can you expect from economy."
Pros: "Service was great and friendly and attentive"
Cons: "Setting chart was not accurate. It showed a space between my seat and next to me and there was no space between."
Pros: "Cathay is a good Asian airline, and if you compare it to any American-based airlines, Cathay is exceptional. Staff are generally very friendly and helpful. Seats and food on economy are pretty good, as far as economy goes. Entertainment system is updated and offers a good variety of options."

Cons: "None in particular"
Pros: "Entertainment system is decent with good selection of movies."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Service and staff. Food was better than most and they weren't stingy with the wine."
Cons: "Plane seemed tired. The usb charger didn't work and the reading lights were impossible to use without putting glare into other passengers eyes. The seats were uncomfortable and their design made it difficult to stretch your legs out beneath the row in front. It was a 777 and I never find Boeings as comfortable as Airbus. Selection of in flight entertainment was limited and sound quality was poor."
Pros: "Seats, entertainment selection, crew, food; & bathrooms were kept clean"
Cons: "Still hate the long flight"
Pros: "We always fly with Cathay. Usually 2-3 times per year and feel the staff are professional and service is extremely good. I recently fractured my ankle and staff provided excellent assistance."
Cons: "The breakfasts for economy passengers is shocking. This has not always been the case. However, Now it is presented in a card board box and of very poor quality."
Pros: "No drinks served before the meal. No water brought round during the night. Cabin staff efficient if a bit brisk. Food not quite OK - no imagination. Films really good."
Pros: "I was put on an earlier flight as they had a window seat available. Leg room was good, and the food and movie offer was better than last time."
Pros: "Excellent and attentive staff, great food, clean bathrooms (by airline standards anyway), fantastic entertainment! It's a great value for the price, especially for coach class!"
Cons: "Not much to dislike. I just was a little bothered by the fact that I had purposely chosen to have my boarding pass be digital (to save the environment), but to do this you have to check in online. As a result, they can't verify your passport (something they need to do in person). So when I got to the gate they had to check my passport and then made me use a new, printed boarding pass. Not a huge deal, but just something that bothered me."
Pros: "FLIGHT WAS CANCELLED"
Cons: "Airline could have have notified us the flight was cancelled via email before we got to the airport. THEY DID NOT. We had to wait in general airport area for SIX HOURS, before we could check in to new flight. We planned trip to arrive to unfamiliar destination during day time. We arrived at MIDNIGHT! AWFUL!!!!"

Pros: "Phone charging, laptop socket, nice legroom and smart recline system means legroom gets better when the guy in front reclines. Toilets clean. New aircraft, attentive crew. AIRBUS A350 IS THE BEST!!!"
Cons: "Food okay could have been better. Entertainment system excellent but television shows section could have been better."
Pros: "all long flight is uncomfortable. The crew can help made a big difference. The airline crew seem to be too busy, ignoring when you try to request something. Ignoring you even they saw your coffee smear because desk is too small and slippery. Curtain was close all the time, as if not welcoming people"

Cons: "At check in the staff felt while flying business class that my carry-on bag was too heavy so they asked me to take papers out and just walk with these. FYI I always take a lot of paper with me to read and as it was a 16 hour flight to Taipei and a subsequent flight of 1.5 hours to HongKong that is what I did. Was really ridiculous and upsetting to get treated for a one wat flight payong $2750 like thos"

Pros: "The staff was friendly for a very late and very long flight"

Cons: "Nothing I didn't like."
Pros: "I liked the crew members. They were welcoming and professional. Flight fare was very good in value for waiting a few extra hours in Taipei. I could do some shopping there while I was in transit. Nice airport. The screens of my row were not working so they restarted all screens a few times. While the screens of my row worked, other rows were not working. Surprisingly no one fixed or complaint as the screens of other rows kept off from the start to the end of the flight. I felt so sorry for others."
Cons: "Like what I said in "what I like", I think the connection of the screens/tablets had some issues. Luckily mine worked. I would be upset if my screen did not work during the entire 9 hours flight."
