Pros: "Crew were very gracious and kind."
Cons: "Food not as good as before"

Pros: "Crew very polite and friendly"
Cons: "Crew forgot to bring me things twice so I had to ask another crew member on both occasions."

Pros: "everything, the crew was efficient"
Cons: "more African entertainment to be added on the Johannesburg route"

Cons: "Terrible"

Pros: "Crew were great. Flight was not full."

Pros: "Dim sum between Hong Kong & Singapore."

Pros: "Generally good Flight was operated by Silk Air"

Cons: "Cabin little bit cold"

Pros: "more room in the seats - excellent hostesses who are so friendly and helpful - lovely food."

Pros: "Again friendly and efficient staff and a smooth flight. Best features of Singapore Airlines."
Cons: "The business class seats were smaller than I thought and not so comfortable as the 777. The seats are hard and ungiving and when you sleep on them you really feel it. Plus the flatbed lay out meant you were basically lying in a question mark position, not so goof for tall people like my husband. The food was good but uninteresting and I think for an overnight flight there should be more smaller,lighter, non spicy options offered rather that full dinners."

Cons: "The desserts. The bun."

Pros: "Excellent flight experience"

Pros: "Great entertainment system for a short haul fl flight"
Cons: "Terrible food"

Pros: "The cabin crew was awesome.. they are for sure the super stars of the company... I wish all of them all the very best for a very bright future"

I hope they were a little considerate as I was travelling for a family emergency and had to take all my stuff back as I wasn’t sure what date I would return back. I was over weight but wish they had considered a lil as had to pay an other $300 extra.."

The airline did nothing to prepare for this situation. It took hours to get another flight organised, communication was non existent and refreshments took ages to come. Airline didn't help with finding a hotel for stranded passengers."

Cons: "Nothing to mention, all was good"

Cons: "This flight is on an old plane. The entertainment system was dated and the seats didn't recline properly. Food wasn't very good and they offered a very limited selection considering it is a 7-hour flight. Not worth doing Singapore Airlines business class for this leg."

Cons: "nothing disappointing"

Pros: "Reasonable price"
Cons: "Missed flight for medical reasons with 9 month old son, attempted to use remaining onward flight to Europe and return through Swiss which was refused! Most unreasonable, cheating me of my payment. I have since sought legal advice and contacted travel agent regarding, seems case law from several instances in my support. I had to pay thousands for new flight Austrian Air. Swiss thieved my money and I dont mind saying so. Unfair and unfair conduct. I am saving this letter for twitter to tell my friends of my disgust. I will be happy if this is sorted refunded immediately. A copy of these details and medical letter already provided to Jithendra from flight network (online travel agent)."

Pros: "I loved the touch of luxury, even sitting in the economy , the hot towels, the good food , attractively prepared , the free wine and the courtesy of all the team. This was my third time flying with Singapore Airlines and I hope not the last time. The big plane flew so quietly, it was a wonderful flight."

Fortunately, he was able to hold the plane and I made it. My baggage didn't though - and was only delivered to the hotel at midnight after a convoluted process claiming it at Tan Son Nhat Airport. Not really good enough given we paid extra in order to be able to travel together. Pick up your game MAS - 2 planes out of the sky and you won't regain customers like this!"
