Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
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: "The small seats are squishy on the older planes. The entertainment system on the older planes were dated and difficult to use. I felt sick after the flight to UK but felt fine coming home after one long flight on a newer plane."

Pros: "So good to get on a flight where I can fit in the seats..."

Pros: "Seats in economy were larger than United. Food was good for airplane food, even found a last minute vegetarian meal not ordered ahead. Appreciated a gratis glass of wine. Found a clean pillow and blanket in every seat upon boarding."
Cons: "My screen had to be reset twice as it froze up. The attendants kept taking my water cups despite them not being empty. Boarding was less than organized, could have been more efficient. We made up time, arriving a few minutes early even after departing late."
Cons: "No entertaining at all, only old movies. The seats are very tight. There was a guy snoring during the flight keeping everybody awake. The breakfast was mediocre, just a a bun with fruit"
Pros: "Spacious seats. Lovely food. Wonderful crew. Smooth flight."

Pros: "Flight crew great"
Pros: "Staff was polite and accommodating"
Pros: "Singapore airline crew is always top notch in terms of service and attentiveness. It's a direct flight from Singapore to Canberra! Beats the layover in Sydney or Melbourne."
Cons: "Business class seats were uncomfortable compared to other business class. They're not lay flat seats, and I can't get the seat even close to flat because my feet jam in to the bottom of the seat in front of me. The food wasn't great, some of the meal which was supposed to be served hot was still cold."
Cons: "Some staff not courteous which surprised me"

Pros: "EVERYTHING was great...from check in to the entire experience on board. Extremely friendly staff to delicious food and a great choice of beverages! Clean and tidy aircraft with lots of extra amenities. Pleasant flight, pleasant arrival. Always a great way to travel!"
Cons: ""Customs" at JFK came to an entire halt. All passengers where stuck in the welcome hall for 1h, without any information, why held there and why nothing was moving forward. All CBP booths were closed, but 8 (eight!) employees, who normally direct arriving passengers to the kiosk-machines where hanging out in two groups sharing private stories and having laughs instead of at least informing passengers, what was going on. Lots of passengers where outraged...a couple in their mid 70s in front of us had to sit down on the floor, since they had circulation problems from standing in line so long. Sadly, JFK isn't what it used to be anymore."
Cons: "The seats and there is not much leg room"
Pros: "I'm starting to sound like a fan boy but Singapore airlines masks this look easy. Comfortable seat great entertainment, edible food and wonderful in for service team. What's not to like"

Cons: "Nothing bad to say about this flight. Great airline."
Pros: "I’ve flown with a lot of airlines in every class. This was an economy class flight and still the food was better than I’ve received in business class on American. The seat was comfortable, the entertainment options varied and extensive and the cabin team were amazing. They clean the bathrooms between uses. Seriously how do other airlines still exist?"

Pros: "The ground staff at JFK, especially Jon, were very helpful and friendly. The flight crew was also very friendly."

Broken entertainment screen, would not stay upright, due to several hundred thousand past passengers bashing into it after having first trodden on the unfortunate passengers feet! Crew unresponsive with drink and food requests, I had to ask for services multiple times on several occasions. Pressing my 'attendant button' my light was lit for 10 minutes before a crew member noticed. My first trip on Singapore, my expectations were not met. Shame"

Cons: "old plane, boarding ramp smelled musty, food not nice, entertainment system was old not touch screen, male crew not patient with passengers, drinks stingy(split a can of soda with other passengers, and gave you a 1/4 cup). When asked for more OJ with breakfast was told they would come back later(mouth was very dry due to the air). Not impressed as we paid good money for the ticket with the poor service"
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "The in flight service was not as good as I remember the last few times I flew with Singapore. ."

Pros: "Hot/Cold towels, great movie selection, more space, good meals"
Pros: "Comfortable, warm with food you could eat! What more could ask from standard economy class"
Pros: "This was probably the best check-in I had. The ground attendant was extremely friendly and helpful. She kindly moved me to the exit seat and made sure I was sitting in aisle seats for the rest of my three flights. All until boarding the process was quick and breezy. In flight, the attendants were professional and friendly. Always smiling and helpful. The entertainment section and food were superb."
Cons: "The only negative thing was that boarding of this flight was late and the gates were switched about 40 minutes before boarding. This was due to the fact that the plane arrived a bit late. None the less, we arrived to Singapore on time and everyone made their flights."
Pros: "1) New seats 2) Good IFE 3) Helpful crew"
Cons: "1) Cramped aisle 2) Toilet seems smaller than the older plane models 3) Boring food"

Pros: "The service on our flights was wonderful! Qatar is the best airline that I’ve ever flown on."
Pros: "Service is courteous, both on the ground and air. Food & entertainment was top-notch as well. One of the economy rest-rooms were out of order and I was allowed to utilize the business class restroom by the flight attendant. Head bursar was very apologetic and sympathetic about the whole issue. Enjoyed my flight, again on Qatar!"
Pros: "Service is courteous, both on the ground and air. Food & entertainment was top-notch as well. Enjoyed my flight, again on Qatar!"
Pros: "I had never heard of Qatar Airways before I booked a 24hr flight to and from Sydney, Australia. I only did this on the suggestion from a friend that stated Qatar Airways was "alright". So for the price I thought what the heck! I was extremely pleased with the service from the cabin crew. They are always polite, professional, and well trained compared to my previous favorites Delta and Lufthansa. The seats were comfortable (as comfortable as Economy and 24hours of flying can be), the entertainment and aircraft were state of the art, and the food was outstanding for airline food. If I get the chance in the future I will definitely choose Qatar Airways for long trips."
Cons: "Other rude or snotty passengers taking up the crews time and attention for no reason. But as I stated in the "positive" side of this review, the crew handled these impolite individuals with a smile and polite attitude. Kudos to Qatar Airways."
Cons: "My seat would not go back. The food was all carbohydrates and quite cool instead of warm. There was only one tiny piece of chicken in chicken roll."

Cons: "Headphones didn’t fit my head and began to hurt my ears. Media cut out a lot."

Cons: "Everything, the food and movies are old, beside all that the flight late and my connection left and no one apologist for that!!!"
Pros: "The flight attendants are always friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Ground crew attitude at checkin,boarding. Only drink choices 2 juice boxes with sad snack. Entertainment screen malfunctioned, poor sound quality cf prior leg. Long rescreening process on connection FROM USA flight. Long wait to deplane to stairs/shuttle bus. Long wait for luggage."
Cons: "More veriaty on music would be good"
Cons: "Meals & Snacks Meals served on board and in the lounges need improvement."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "both flights had 2 hours delay... also lugages cames with next flight."
Pros: "Friendly staff. Good food."
Cons: "Unlike my flight from US to Qatar, this flight was outdated and their video streaming touch device was old."
Cons: "The online check in system was down so we all had to line up to check in."
Pros: "Service. Kindness"
Pros: "The food was amazing. Thank you!"
Cons: "Long flight on a 777-200. Crowded aircraft, crew not very attentive to call light, and food mediocre at best. Entertainment service was horrible, old movies and typical Qatar Airline selection of Bollywood films (Expected when flying from Doha, but not New Zealand!) Seat would not recline, but no option to move to another isle seat."
Pros: "Generally good experience at least as far as a very long flight with two children can go. Good food with plenty and quite healthy snacks for kids. Very friendly and attentive crew, comparably comfortable seats, clean and comfortable bathrooms (what not always has been my experience with other airlines)"
Cons: "Due to a misunderstanding at check-in we have been seated away from a baby bassinette (although booked) to sit together with my husband, nobody asked what my preference would be (sitting as a whole family or having a bassinette) and a 17-hour flight with a 9month old baby constantly on my lap was challenging. Also a very disappointing selection of films and documentaries for adults. I ended watching a kids movie with my older daughter and it was the only thing I found appealing. Kids section very good though, my 5-year old was glued to the screen and all the options had my approval :)"
Cons: "They flight was moved up about 1 hr earlier. But no email/SMS/call etc. I totally could have missed the flight as a result! Why would they change it and not let passengers know?"
Pros: "Boarding, the welcome on board, the food choice and quality were all excellent. The seat was comfortable as I didn't want to sleep. The entertainment screen was big and clear, and the choice of films was good. The member of flight crew, a Latvian lady, who looked after me onboard was a real star, very efficient but still had time to chat."
Cons: "The choice of films and tv programmes, was good, but before watching each one i chose, I had to endure a couple off minutes of an advert- the same one every time."
Pros: "Helpful and frieendly"
Cons: "Counters should have opened earlier so we could have done aome ahopping at dfs"
Pros: "Everything was good!"
Cons: "I had a torn budd/hamstring muscle and an upgrade to another class would have been great because I was in constant pain. Hopefully, when I return in a few days - this could be arranged?"
Pros: "Seats were roomy and leaned back quite comfortably. The gluten free meals I had were fantastic, which I've never said before of an airplane , even regular meals."
Pros: "Generally ok but not as good as other Middle East carriers"
Cons: "The leg room on this flight felt less generous than other carrier and the food was poor almost inedible. The aircraft (777) seemed much noiser than other aircraft I have flown on and the noise from the toilet flush could be heard 10 rows away"
Pros: "Overall, an excellent short flight. I was flying with oversize luggage (bicycle), which is offer a hassle. The ticket agent took care of it without issue, and it arrived safely. Food was OK. I would try Qatar for a long flight if the opportunity arises."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic. Everyone just queued up instead of using zones, etc."
Pros: "Excellent customer service, smooth boarding, good food."
Cons: "Worst customer service ever seen in my 15years of flying experience. Initially charged $1000 for 3 tickets for modification of return trip - confirmed the same and tickets issued (i'm fine with this). But, after i made arrangements for new date, I got a call saying calculation error and asked to pay another $500 leaving me no choices. How can such a reputed airline have no tools to calculate the pay? Other airlines offered one-way for half of the price i paid. On top of it, online helpdek promised front line seat to satisfy me but nothing was offered even if i ask explicitly. Simply declined saying i am not in priority list. Why do they make false promises? Friends, Just don't fly in Qatar for food....."
Pros: "Clean plane, esp. the bathrooms. Sufficient bathroom amenities. Attendants always checking bathrooms for cleanliness. Very friendly attendants yet not overpowering. This flight, the films are a bit better but still not the most recently films are on offer. Nobu's seafood soup noodles was the best!"
Cons: "Not interested in the menu's main courses. Fruits were not sweet at all. Must improve on your cappuccino. Nobu's seafood soup noodle did not come with chopsticks."
Pros: "I slept most of the flight and awoke to the smiling faces of the flight attendants."
Cons: "Long time to check in. Not the airlines fault. Passengers had so much luggage, I didn't think the plane would leave the ground. There should be a line for people who travel light."
Cons: "Food is not up to the standard. They make announcements that there will be snacks like sandwiches and ice creams, but they don't offer that openly. You have to ask for snacks. Now we, US citizens don't like to ask for food just so you know. The crew should offer. if we don't need the food, we can always say no."
Pros: "Crew courtesy."
Pros: "Everything. The service, the staff, the comfort. It was just a pleasure flying with Qatar"
Pros: "A380 - was amazing. Roomy and quite"

Pros: "The food was excellent. The service was great. The flight was smooth."
Pros: "I can never get over how astonishingly better Doha airport (from start to finish) and lounges are than any others"
Cons: "Aircraft in business on a A340 is well below par these days especially when you get used to flying QR's Dreamliner in Business which is best of the best"
Pros: "Prompt takeoff. Seats were comfortable. Excellent selection of films on the in-flight entertainment system. Food was OK. Crew were extremely helpful, despite some of them clearly being tired. When my in-flight entertainment system failed, I was offered a seat change."
Cons: "Unfortunately, my the sound on my in-flight entertainment system cut out about 45 minutes into the flight. Although crew were extremely helpful in trying to rectify the problem by resetting the system, it was to no avail."
Cons: "we were on the big airbus, I was flying economy but can't remember seats being so close together on other economy flights. I think that they've had the spacing made smaller so that they can have more seating."
Pros: "Not at all satisfied with the boarding procedure. We had valid tickets in hand. But at the checking counter they said the ticket has been cancelled !!! Huh! We had to fight between the Qatar airways customer care and American airlines for two hours to sort it out. Finally they printed the boarding pass. It was too much of mental torture. I will not choose Qatar again. Horrible!"
Pros: "The economy was just as well served as Business Class. There were 22 different countries represented in the crew on the flight. We were served a hot meal and a cocktail. Also, had more leg room than normal. Very efficient boarding system, as well."
Cons: "There wasn't anything about the flight to and from Sydney to New Zealand we didn't like."
Pros: "I requested a blanket for my Son and was told there was none available....."
Cons: "On disembarking I notice a various overhead compartments with bags full of blankets. Why was a deny a simple Blanket? This is unacceptable in an airline that praises itself to be one with the best customer services.......Bad, really bad...."
Cons: "food was not served on time. crew was not attentive and did not care for passengers"
Pros: "New aircraft"
Pros: "A380 is really comfortable even in economy and choice for entertainment is great"
Cons: "Crew are great during standard service runs such as meal / drinks but outside of assigned duties trying to get their attention is almost impossible as the are busy chatting. Pressed the cabin crew call button and took over 15 mins for someone to respond (and only after I caught someone's attention walking past - for the second time, the first person took my request then never reappeared). This despite at least 8 crew members walking past me."
Pros: "Emirates is always excellent however the crew were not very engaging"
Pros: "Fantastic service all around"
Cons: "Seat could have a more comfortable bottom and IFE was a bit dated"
Pros: "I have high expectations for Emirates, and for the most part they delivered."
Cons: "They ran out of many food options by the time they came to my part of the plane. These new planes are designed poorly. Passengers were not even allowed to carry out a basic conversation near the restrooms at the back of the plane without being shushed left and right from cabin crew in their private quarters and other crew up the stairs."
Pros: "seats reclined nice, movie selection great"
Cons: "i didn't care for the manner in which you are charged for baggage fees"
Pros: "In Flight Service and Guest Care for Wheel chair assistance"
Pros: "Great seat with extra legroom, very attentive cabin crew."
Pros: "I was very late and the gate was closed but the staff helped me make it on time."
Cons: "I booked on Emirates and on my way back I flew with Fly Dubai it wasn’t specified in the ticket. There were no pillows, no covers and I was freezing! No entertainment it is a downgrade from Emirates. At least the ticket should have costed less."
Pros: "Emirates itself was great but using fly Dubai from Dubai to Kabul was awful."
Cons: "No flights to Kabul using Fly Dubai when someone books tickets actually for Emirates."
Cons: "Boarding system. Final call on gate and it's to get to 2 more areas."
Pros: "Service level of cabin crew and ICE."
Cons: "The long wait to exit from the aircraft and to pick up my baggages from the carousel at Mcr airport. The main meal chicken curry & rice was a disappointment as the curry appeared slimy and starchy. It didn’t come anywhere near the delicious meal on flight from Mcr to Dubai on 12/1/19 chicken with pilaf rice!"
Pros: "entertainment was great!"
Cons: "Not much to eat for a vegan."
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."

Pros: "Most of the staff were supportive and caring and made me feel like nothing was too much to ask."
Cons: "I didn't realise my kid wouldn't get her own meal and I ran out of food if prepared by the last flight as we were travelling 38 hours in total. Snacks were available on request but it was just crisps so I gave her most of my meals."
Pros: "Leg room is always great!! Also the staff a brilliant!!"
Pros: "The flight on the A3800 was great."
Pros: "Great video console for a short 1.5 hour flight to Yangon"

Cons: "I just don’t like discomfort of others moving their seat back."
Cons: "see above"
Pros: "Great legroom, quiet plane, seat free next to me"
Cons: "Not much"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very professional, friendly and attentive. We were also impressed with the amenities -- every passenger received free headphones, drinks, pillow and blanket."
Cons: "The overhead lights did not seem to align with the correct seats."
Pros: "The crew was great and helped make it easier with young children - the entertainment for children was also very diverse -"
Cons: "The children meal was not wonderful. But as I only had one and two children - they shared an adult and child meal - which was okay."
Cons: "Booked an aisle seat in early April. Emirates reassigned me a middle seat, this on a 13.25 hour flight! Refused to rebook me back to original even though I showed them my original booking. Never Emirates again! Ever."
Pros: "The ice entertainment is great, from movies to series and such a vast choice to pick from. Was the only thing that kept me going on the flight."
Cons: "For a 8 hour flight the seats are not great. I'm only 5'7" and still didn't feel I had much room for my legs. Food wasn't the best but I've never been a fan of airplane food. Had a good pick of soft drinks."
Pros: "Emirates is my new favorite airline. Food was excellent, flight attendants were all friendly and professional, the seats were spacious, and there was a great selection of movies."
Pros: "Good seat pitch in economy and good entertainment selection."
Pros: "In flight entertainment"
Cons: "It was an overnight flight but they serve dinner don't turn lights off then other passengers are shaking you awake to have you put ur seat up this was unacceptable"
Pros: "Flight was light and was comfortable"
Cons: "The flight was light. Even with that the crew seemed checked out. Did not come by to offer additional drinks or snacks. I noticed some unprofessional physical contact between few Crew members."
Pros: "Iv only every travelled 1st class before and this time had to travel business. I hadn't realised the drop in standard would be so apparent . The staff are not as professinal , attentive and didn't seem very organised ."
Cons: "The food was below any standard iv ever flown and was quite frankly disappointed with it only the stale dry scones but the flight as whole . I voiced my concerns at the time and was apologised to . This however caused me to feel uncomfortabld and out in the spot ."
Pros: "crew very friendly"
Pros: "Great experience would Defo use them for our next trip."
Pros: "Crew is very friendly and fast when you turn on the help sig."
Cons: "I can't handle any kind of spicness in my food. I understand you guys try to give out food similar to the place your visiting, but I wish you guys gave out an option of non spicy food just like you do for vegetarians. I would also like to suggest that your crew members come more frequently to give out water. And the last thing I want to say is the most important, Boarding the plane was such a hassle. I would like to suggest that a crew member should come out and organize the way people are going to be boarding. They can say something like, "seats # A-C can you place stand on the left and Busniness Class on the right" instead of having everyone crowd to the front and be pushing each other. Or have those rope lines like they do at banks and make the people form a line."
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful crew"
Cons: "The business class seat was too short for sleeping"
Pros: "Getting off the plane after 24 hours of nonstop crying children"
Pros: "Emirates is our usual pick for flying and this time also it was no exception. The crew were friendly, but still couldn't arrange preferred seating because it was during the holiday season. I know this is the section for good comments, but I am very disappointed about the demeanor and the service provided this time."
Cons: "I have called in advance and selected the seats for both inbound and outbound flights. Also, confirmed a wheelchair access. To my surprise, none of them were met according to the commitment. The seats were not the ones that were asked for. I mentioned that there was a medical condition with the leg and my mom would have to get up and move during the flight, but still they allocated seats which are extremely inconvenient to both us and the fellow passengers. We expect better from Emirates!!! I hope they can improve this in the future!"
Cons: "I didn’t have a pillow."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable with enough leg room even in Economy class.The on-flight entertainment was excellent."
Cons: "I didn't like the food offered that much. Also, it seemed that the crew were not that good in coordinating among themselves and helping out passengers. There was not much option on drinks."
Pros: "Very delayed flight that resulted to missed my flight going to davao"
Pros: "Quick check in. Courteous."
Pros: "Very efficient and courteous, a pleasure to fly with your airline."
Cons: "Don’t change anything!"
Pros: "I thought the service on this flight was much better this time around; at least from where I was sitting. The attendants seemed to come around more often and there was a much better food selection for everyone involved. Overall, I found the flight to be safe, mostly comfortable, and the food was excellent."
Cons: "I had a family sitting next to me (I was in the aisle) and I felt that while the attendants were courteous and prompt in accommodating me, they all but ignored the people in the middle seats. I had to keep asking them on the attendant's behalf if they needed anything before they rushed on by. At one point the father told me that he was getting better service from me than the attendants. Also, one of the TV screens didn't work in one of the middle seats so the family had to do a switcharoo with their little one after they got settled so their son could have the working screen. I personally found that it was very difficult to recline my seat - I really had to quite literally put my back into it to get it to click into the reclining position."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and effective. The flight was on time. The seat was comfortable in economy"
Cons: "Food was average. I wish the snacks could incorporate some Hong Kong specialities."
Cons: "The gate to connecting flight was very far and signs to gate were confusing."
Pros: "Everything is great"
Pros: "Inflight entertainment was excellent! Staff were very attentive."
Cons: "More choices in food and more leg room or ability to put legs up, had very swollen feet!"
Pros: "Boeing 777 had an upgrade on the video display software, making for a more manageable video experience. It's easier to navigate because of the ability to close screens and go back to the screen you were on, rather than having to start over each time."
Cons: "I received a polite e-mail and a text message an hour or two later indicating that my flight from Taipei to HongKong had been delayed. It took a login to the Cathay Pacific web site to figure out that with the rescheduled time, I would miss my connecting flight from HongKong to Boston if I didn't change anything. I managed to sort it out, though it took using my cell phone to place an international call to the HongKong Cathay Pacific office to get me on an earlier flight. I don't think this is an acceptable level of service -- had I not had WiFi access or an international capable cell phone, I would have been stranded in Taipei or HongKong an extra day. I think CP could have done more to notify and help remediate the situation knowing the implication of the rescheduled flight. Food also remains mediocre, though slightly better."
Pros: "Food is good"
Cons: "I didn't like their foods specially fish & chicken made me nausea"
Cons: "Punctuality doesn’t seem to be a priority for Cathay Pacific or Cathay dragon"
Cons: "Poor inflight service"
Cons: "My mother has health issues. She is diabetic, and asked for Juice. Air hostess told her they don't have the permission to serve anything for certain period of time. They did not give her Juice, and she was not feeling well. I'll not choose this airline again. Food was ok too"
Pros: "The overall value is good."
Pros: "Smooth flight , crew members were good"
Cons: "Food and chair space The head set was in a sealed bag , when I opened it I found 2 white hair inside !!! The blanket was soiled with chocolate in a sealed bag !! Delayed flight for an hour without timely announcement"
Pros: "Great entertainment choice"
Cons: "Vegetarian meal pre-order very dull."
Pros: "Flight was delayed Made connection just in time"
Pros: "comfort and service is always great on cathay pacific"
Cons: "bathroom were dirty"
Pros: "My experience with Cathay has been great the last 3 years always a smooth flight to La and to Hong Kong...Great service"
Cons: "The only thing I did not like is my experience with vayama thru kayak I had an issue with changing flight times and delayed confirmation upon booking"
Pros: "Nice crews eating for a big guy."
Pros: "I like the service and the foods are so delicious."
Cons: "The charging port when I was on my way to Hong Kong from Los Angeles, it wasn't working so that's the only thing that I didn't like."
Pros: "There wasn't much to note. uneventful and ok service"
Cons: "There wasn't much to complain"
Cons: "Terriable service"
Cons: "Limited help in assisting passengers who missed their connection due to delay leaving Colombo and Hong Kong"
Pros: "There was nobody around the second business class section... was private and comfortable..."
Cons: "No beverage service or nothing after take off... only breakfast service 2 hours before landing... but slept through that... woke up hungry."
Pros: "Flight staff was excellent and friendly"
Cons: "our flight form Vancouver to Hong Kong was delayed 3 hours which made our connection in Hong Kong to Denpasar short. This resulted in our luggage not getting to Bali and we had to wait 36 hours to get it. As we were leaving on a tour the next day it made it very difficult to get the airline to understand where we needed our luggage and how important it was to get it. It took numerous phone calls, all of which were costly long distance, to get them to commit to getting our luggage to us"
Pros: "Great seat. Flew from Hong Kong to Manchester and had a good 7 hour sleep. Food, especially breakfast was amazing with a dim sum selection. Crew was fantastic as always."
Cons: "Dinner however was a little lackluster with a prawn and crab meat stir fry which was a little bland."
Pros: "Food was better than average Seats were not too cramped."
Cons: "Seats are harder than I like for a long flight. Cathay screwed up my departure date and had to spend hundreds on top of normal change fee to get home on the day I was supposed to."
Pros: "The flight left in HK without 7 passengers included me. Customer service was very bad in HK."
Cons: "bring back Me Before You!"
Pros: "It was the best that it could be. Our flight was late and we got the airport early, so the flight attendants put us on an earlier flight so we could make our connection!"
Pros: "Behaviour of flight crew, punctual arrival,food and departure.Great prices. Nice support from ground staff during lengthy queues at Kolkata immigration.Thanks!"
Cons: "Nothing much ! Restriction of cabin baggage to 7 kilograms for passengers on very long routes ( Kolkata ,HongKong to Boston and San Juan in my case) and being asked to weigh all cabin baggages and check in a cabin baggage of 9 Kilos."
Cons: "Those economy seats can only fit a child comfortably."
Pros: "For the 15 hour flight from Hong Kong, they served two meals and put out snacks and drinks in the galleys in the interim. The dinner was pretty decent, and they gave a small bottle of water along with Hagen Daz ice cream. The seats reclined pretty well for economy class (the bottom of the seat shifted too, which was unexpected). Power outlets at every seat and an extensive entertainment system with movies from Eastern and Western culture."
Cons: "Breakfast was eggs and some nasty looking sausage, neither of which I ate."
Cons: "Blankets were very thin, although clean felt reused. Headphones were poor which meant if Someone in a near seat was talking couldn't hear through my headset despite volume being turned up."
Pros: "American pilots"
Pros: "Everything was great. The crew was polite and helpful throughout my flights. The food was good, tasty and hot! Had some newer movies available."
Cons: "The reading light did not work. The drinking water was cloudy and tasted funny."
Pros: "seats were roomier than usual. Very comfortable"
Pros: "The flight would have been much more enjoyable had the had for my tv and the recliner on my seat been working. The flight was moderately clean and food was average but they did serve two full meals and give options for a menu."
Cons: "Because the audio for my tv wasn't working, I spoke to flight attendants multiple times and they said they kept "resetting" my tv system but it didn't help and they didn't even seem apologetic at all. It was very matter of fact that I simply didn't have a functioning seat (the recliner also wasn't working) and I would just need to accept it. I wouldn't normally care about this but seeing as this flight was 17 hrs long from NYC to Hong Kong, it made the flight much more unbearable."
Pros: "Generally all the staff were quite courteous. Flight was quite comfortable. Leg space was better than the first leg flight from Bengaluru to Hongkong."
Cons: "Food i.e. AVML was absolutely mediocre. I almost went hungry, but for the snacks which were available whenever, I wanted. Luggage at the SFO airport arrived at the Carousal quite late. Most of the passengers, after clearing the immigration(which normally takes long), had to wait at the carousal for more than half hour to receive their luggages."
Cons: "Food is not good and not served on time. Crew members arent professional and rush through things"
Cons: "I think I regretted paying extra for the exit row seat because of people tripping over my feet when trying to access the toilet right there, but the alternative was an interior seat. I'm not a big fan of Cathay Pacific's policy of charging for the ability to pick your seats in advance. Also boarding was less comfortable than it needed to be because of security precautions put in place ... we were searched to enter the boarding area and there was no access to a toilet (and we weren't premitting to bring drinking water even though we were in an already controlled area). Again lack of control of the boarding process in Asian countries makes the whole experience less than ideal."
Pros: "The food is a good standard and plenty of it. The drinks (wine, beer, fruit juice, tea and coffee) were free and plentiful. The seats are a reasonable size and recline well."
Cons: "The volume of the entertainment system changes every time there is an overall announcement from the aircrew or pilot. You have to turn it down or up again each time. As the announcements are in both English and then Chinese you have to do this a lot. The seats have a head rest section (as all airlines seats seem to do) that pushes your head even further forward meaning you get the dreaded head bobbing scenario when trying to sleep. When will airlines fix this problem.. its really easy to fix.. make the top of the chair thinner and further back in the upright position."
Pros: "Efficiency, and in flight entertainment quality"
Cons: "nothing much"
Pros: "I loved the staff! Even though I was flying in economy, they did everything in their power to make my flight the most enjoyable it could be. They found me an aisle seat on a full flight when I wasn't satisfied with my middle seat."
Cons: "There was a passenger in front of me who thought she was the Queen of Shiva and was very rude towards the staff members. Her experience wasexceptionally different than mine."
Pros: "40kg baggage allowance"
Cons: "1. You are trying to communicate with me in Dutch, which I don't understand. I only understand English. 2. My booking was not eligible for online seat selection or check-in."
Pros: "Very smooth, on time boarding. Food quality"
Cons: "The food is served on a tiny tray that only has room for the hot dish. Other items are piled on top. Recipe for items being dropped, getting crumbs everywhere and generally less comfortable eating experirnce. And stop using plastic cutlery!"
Pros: "Professional service.."
Pros: "Food was delicious and service excellent"
Cons: "Slow customs in Honolulu"
Cons: "Seating space was horrible! The seat in front of me, when reclined, was IN MY LAP! Headphones were bad. This LONG flight left A LOT to be desired!"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Needs vegetarian options"
Pros: "The seats are comfortable and the service is first rate. Best airline out of Virgin Australia, Air New Zealand, and Qantas based on my 3 trips to New Zealand"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "One of the stewardesses perfume was quite overwhelming."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and my itinerary was re-booked and going thru Melbourne to Perth. I lost half day of my life wasted in the Airport. The worst part of this change was flying on an old 737 thru Melbourne without the entertainment access for this long flight."
Pros: "canin pressure and comfort level was excellent"
Cons: "screens from other seats are bright"
Pros: "Such amazing service and hospitality on our flight from Jozi to Sydney. Old school 747 looking top class. Cabin crew on point. Simply an amazing experience. Best international flight I’ve been on in years."
Cons: "Very old plane, entertainment pathetic. Seats bad Time to retire plane.."
Pros: "Staff were friendly."
Cons: "A tiny pla? A bumpy flight. You should get the heads up about such small planes."
Pros: "More legroom, bathrooms appeared to get serviced so they were not a mess, plenty of food and drinks available throughout the flight. Being able to order the meal ahead was a wonderful way to guarantee your choice. Well done!"
Pros: "Got us safely to our destination"
Cons: "Seats were far less comfortable and smaller with less legroom than our Qantas qf8 flight"
Cons: "The crew was not all that friendly in my section"
Pros: "Great service, comfortable seats, little to no turbulence, all around a great flight!"
Cons: "When seat in front of you is reclined it takes away a lot of your personal space and makes it impossible to get up to go to bathroom"
Pros: "The service and the meals and snacks- American airlines do not provide any of those things anymore, Qantas did domestically as well as on our international flight."
Cons: "Seat room on the international flight - became uncomfortable after over 17 hours and could not afford upgrade to business or 1st class."
Pros: "All the food. Service was good."
Cons: "There was a delay but they didn't explain what was going on. I overheard that there was a threat."
Pros: "Excellent food, especially breakfast"
Cons: "Arriving at an external gate"
Pros: "The flight crew allows you to sleep the majority of the flight."
Cons: "Plane was dated. No outlets at seats so I couldn’t plug in my CPAP machine. Seats crowded compared to other international airlines."
Pros: "It was the day before Christmas and all the crew were friendly and happy to be at work (of service) from check in to cabin crew. Just lovely thank you."
Pros: "The crew take time to talk to you, and everyone of them has a smile. The in flight meals were great, not typical airline TV dinners. They were good meals. The entertainment selection is outstanding, especially for a 14-hour flight. power outlets work, and they even have snacks in the galley area like Lufthansa so if you need a soft drink, coffee or candy...it is there all during the flight. A long flight could not be made easier"
Pros: "Typical great Qantas customer service and safety"
Cons: "I don't understand why the fourth busiest route internationally is still so expensive.."
Pros: "love the selection of food and snacks"
Cons: "staff was not at helpful and friendly as i remembered. Seem a little stress and did not want to be there."
Cons: "Delayed at takeoff but made some time back in the air and captain rearranged connecting flights for passengers. Food portions were a bit small at mealtimes."
Pros: "Relatively smooth flight. Good snacks at back of plane. Plenty of bathrooms. Crew were courteous and helpful."
Cons: "Headphone jack and USB charging jack didn't work. So wasn't able to watch any movies. Arm rest was broken. When the seat in front reclines it gets very tight forcing you to recline and do it to the person behind you. Needs refurbishing. The seats are in poor shape and are pretty tight."
Pros: "Plane, when I boarded, at least in Coach, smelled like vendors hot-dog water. Took an hour and a half to be offered a drink of anything other than a bottle water. By the end of the flight, trash in the aisles, lavatories were nasty."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Thanks Qantas for a great trip home. Good food and service."
Cons: "The new uniform look is terrible."
Pros: "Very little. Even though I'm sure I wasn't suppose to, my seat allowed me to put my feet up on the wall. At least I was able to elevate them a bit."
Cons: "First, the flight was delayed an hour and a half. No gate was announced until just before boarding. Afraid of missing my flight, I didn't doze even though I had been awake for 20 hours at this point. Once I got on the plane, the seats were so small in economy my hips were pressed against the arm rests and I am not a large person. The man next to me was pressing through over to my side. We both had difficulty opening the tray for meals because they were in the arm rests (not that it mattered, we were never served good). The controls for the entertainment and lights were in the arm rests as well and there was no way to see them because your thighs were pressed against them. The screen for my entertainment was crooked and flickered. The charging port did not work for my cell phone. The earphone jack had to be wiggled and wiggled and then I had to hold my leg perfectly still not to bump it. I eventually gave up trying to use the entertainment screen. I preordered my meal online, but waiting for dinner, already exhausted, I dozed off. I didn't get dinner and no one came around the rest of the trip and offered any refreshments. No water, no snack, nothing. As a matter of fact, I'm not sure I saw a crew member for the rest of the flight."
Pros: "Economy cabin red-eye service Perth to Sydney included sandwich and drink soon after departure, quiet cabin with ample at-seat entertainment for those electing not to sleep on the way, and cold bottle of water immediately upon decent in the morning. Being from the US, the cabin and service level far exceeds domestic service offerings from the large US carriers. Value quickly exceeds that of low-cost carriers, especially as a checked bag is included."
Pros: "The entertainment had a great selection"
Cons: "I would have liked another round of drinks. Also people were still walking around and to the toilet when the fasten seat belt sign was on..."
Pros: "Dood provided was good. Service was good. Baggage was fast."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful and we were provided with breakfast even on this shorter flight."
Cons: "They didn't have as big of a selection of movies on their smaller plane."
Pros: "Staff were super accommodating and friendly. Best pillow I've had on a flight. Blankets were nice as well."
Cons: "Seats didn't accommodate my broad shoulders well. Seats seemed tighter than ones I've flow long distance on before ie. Iceland Air, New Zealand Air, and Emirates. Head phone jack is inside the seat arm rest which made it awkward when adjusting. No standard head phone jack but a converter is provided."
Pros: "Cleanliness, really courteous staff, comfortable seats, entertainment from an app :-)"
Pros: "Such an arduous and indirect flight route and entertainment screen was non viable but always good to fly with Qantas!"
Pros: "movie selection"
Cons: "Crew is not friendly or helpful Many times you couldn't get them. Serving process is very poor due to the process."
Pros: "Great service, great food"
Pros: "It was a short flight from Wellington to Sydney. There was no food served but beverages and snack."
Cons: "Not much I didn't like"
Pros: "Friendly crew members. Departure time & arrival times were very accurate. Luggage was handled properly."
Cons: "Taste & selection for vegetarian meals were very poor"
Pros: "Getting there in one piece."
Cons: "Very small selection of movies and shows. Breakfast meal horrible. Heartburn within half hour."
Cons: "Lost a piece of our luggage--but very diligent about finding it and getting it to us the next day."
Pros: "On time and efficient."
Cons: "No GF food choices offered - always try asking for a bit of fruit if what's on offer doesn't suit."
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."
Cons: "Cold pasta and very dry chicken - inedible. very noisy, old plane. poor entertainment system and film selection. poor seats. smelly toilets. unenthusiastic crew."
Cons: "I went to the counter to check in 1 hour before the flight (at around 6am), and the counter has already closed. The lady at the counter said that we had to check in at least 3 hours before the flight, which is a lie. I asked if there is anything she can help re-schedule, and she simple refused to help in anyway. I am very disappointed on the service of Quanta airline."
Cons: "Very uncomfy seats cabin freezing everyone was sneezing food service poor kept waiting ages for lunch. TVs in seat backs very poor quality and because person in front reclined screen too close to view comfortably. Would not fly Qantas again based on this experience"
Pros: "seats had better pitch in economy than other airlines, so a bit more comfortable"
Cons: "Movie selection limited in choices."
Pros: "Newer plane..and rest all downhill"
Cons: "Rude fight crew. No help at all. Asked for water bottle 5 hours into a 15 hour flight and was told "We dont have any more bottles" Had to use old water bottle to fill up water every few hours. No... "excuse me" or "pardon me" when the crew walks by. Smiles are missing totally except for one flight attendant. Even thought the plane was a Airbus 380... seats were still tight. Qantas is kindergarten compared to Emirates AIrline.."
Cons: "1- Substandard sitting space. 2- Unable to adjust the light so I can read or fill out forms (poor maintenance). 3- Low ratio of cabin crew to packed passengers. Overall very disappointing experience, way below previous years travelings with Qantas:)"
