We were told that people with boarding passes of the original flight date had to wait for more recent passes. This led many to think that they would be kicked off the flight after waiting 24hrs. Once we did finally board we found that they had made a mistake and had to deboard a passenger resulting in an extra hour delay"

Cons: "It was HOT. We and other passengers told the flight attendants about the heat but nothing really changed. The air circulation was poor and people were sweating on the plane. Because of this, it was stale and smelly. I'm not sure why the circulation on their plane was so poor but it really made the flight more difficult than it should have been. I thought it was a one time issue but it was also hot on the flight back as well."

Pros: "Flight was on time Crew very friendly and helpful and the pilots landed the plane smoothly Keep up the good job!!!"

Pros: "I liked the spacious seating, up to date entertainment and snacks, plus food even though a short flight. I found the male stewards on this flight a lot more helpful I'm not saying the women weren't as well. Gender balance is good. Overall everytime I have flown Korean Air the service has been exceptionally pleasant and I feel confident and safe. Knock on wood I hope they keep striving for excellence and not lose it along the way like so many other airlines over the years."
Cons: "The constant interruptions of messages while watching movies. All the lights along the ceiling of the plane seem to be a lot brighter on day and night flights. Softer lighting be a little bit more comforting to the eyes, besides don't each seat have its own light source if extra lighting is needed!"

Pros: "This was a relatively short late night flight into Incheon from Manila; cabin crew was attentive. About an hour from Korea, about 3 a.m. we were awakened by the brightening cabin lights and served a full dinner. It was a nice gesture; my connecting flight was more than 18 hours later and the dinner helped with both time change syndrome and with hunger pangs. KAL was also very helpful with my change of schedule; I was returning to the US for medical needs including unexpected surgery recommended by my Asian physician, on a schedule to meet needs of my US physician, KAL is definitely a first class outfit, and has proved it with every flight I've taken."
Cons: "No complaints at all."
Pros: "Nice crew!"
Cons: "The food sucks, the seats are hard and uncomfortable"
Pros: "Food, entertainment and service."
Cons: "Seats are too close and fight, but the staff made the experience very good."

Cons: "Everything. Singapore Airlines had a great reputation. Imagine my disappointment. It was a horrible flight. The crew was nice enough, but inattentive. The food, if such a term may be applied here, was inedible. Just vile. In flight entertainment was a complete joke. Boarding was awful, but it always is. Seats were extremely uncomfortable. This racket is the ultimate way to rip somebody off of $1000. Horrible."

Pros: "Very organized"
Cons: "Seats could be a bit more comfortable in premium economy"
Cons: "There was on flight attendance which I assume new. She was not able to manage to check with her colleagues whether there was still a food which I requested before giving me the answer. Also, to me little things like fold the cup holder before take off and landing is just a simple task to do without giving a lecture to the passenger when he or she might be tight up with kids."
Pros: "Amazing service!"
Pros: "business seats were excellent"
Cons: "all was good"

Cons: "Too cold"
Pros: "Service was nice."
Cons: "Comparing to recent businesses class flight on Emirates; Singapore airlines seat does not recline to flat bed. Boarded flight st 11pm and arrived at Singapore at 7am. Toiletries like tooth brush and paste, razor etc. were not provided. Emirates provides, so we did not pack in-flight."
Pros: "The business class bed was the best I have yet encountered. The food and service were great. And the stews? Gorgeous and so agreeable. One young lady even helped me with my back injury; turns out she was studying physical therapy. You can't find a better ride than that,"
Pros: "everything are okey"
Pros: "Wonderful and warm crew made me feel at home. Loads of entertainment but best of all, comfortable seat/bed allowed for a goodnight's sleep!"
Pros: "Entertainment service is, really, second to none."

Pros: "The presence and attitude of the flight attendants were highly pleasant and accommodating. The entire flight was very comfortable and made the 9 hour journey from Manchester to Houston Texas fast and enjoyable. The flight attendants always had a wonderful smile which felt genuine many a time and always made an effort to speak at the level of the passenger. When I had trouble connecting to the Wifi, one attendant even knelt down and connected my phone manually as I was not tech savvy in this regard. The food was of much higher quality as well compared to other airlines I traveled with on this trip."
Cons: "Really the only issue was there was a 2 hour delay on departure, however this was due to issues out of control of the airline and I did not mind as the airline's ambience and my experience with it overshadowed any delays."
Pros: "We started taxing 15 minutes before the departure time. This is great !"
Cons: "not much"
Pros: "Some of the Korean food was tasty The flight wasn't full so we had a spare seat between us, That made economy barely tolerable."
Cons: "The seats in economy are now Way TOO SMALL! You better start calling Economy - "Stearage"! Food was not as good as on past flights with SA. Movie selection not as good as past SA flights. Earphones supplied are horrible!!!"
Cons: "They reschudle my flight beaucase I have anxiety. It's my birthday today. I'm suppose to be in China celebrating me and my grandma's birthday right now. Apparently anxiety is something that Singapore airline are very concerned about me, that needs a doctor note to prove that I'm okey to fly. poor coummcation skill and power play"
Cons: "Need to be able to upgrade with Krisflyer Miles"
Pros: "Service was best in class"
Cons: "Planes are old. They never seem to use newer planes on the Brisbane leg."

Pros: "We had the BEST FEMALE flight attendants, they were soooo helpful and one of them came and wrote down my kids' names so she can call them by their names, and they got to choose the food and got theirs early so I was able to help them before mine arrived which was super thoughtful! Food option was pretty good and lots of shows and movies to choose from. Getting ice cream was such a treat for my kids!"
Cons: "The male flight attendants were kind of annoying, they were trying to be funny but didn't work so they just came off arrogant and annoying!"

Cons: "Leg room was bad... The foot rest attached to the seat in front of me kept lowering itself on its own."
Pros: "I liked how often the staff walked down the ailes to help. They are very attentive. The entertainment is endless. Seats were standard in economy class, I recommended upgrading for that long of a flight."
Cons: "To my flight specifically, it got adjusted without telling me so I ended up missing my final transfer. I was not given a notification for a flight change. Someone met me at the end of my second flight to tell me I missed my connecting flight. With the adjusted flight Singapore gave me, there was no chance I would have made it. They did purchase a ticket for me on another airline to get to San Francisco in the end."
Pros: "The food was great!"
Cons: "The announcements coming from the boarding crew were not clear or hardly under stable."
Pros: "Good crew. Nice flight. Newer equipment."

Pros: "seat was okay, far from comfortable, plane too cold, although they did have blankets, late boarding, no particular reason, it's probably not Qatar's fault, but baggage service at JFK was terrible."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. I upgraded to business class and am so happy I did for the 16 hour flight."
Pros: "Service by the crew was outstanding, but special mention to Deepika who made sure I had a Business Class experience out of this world, always smiling and checking if I needed anything"
Cons: "The food and the wine selection did not impressed me. Qatar needs to make some changes."

Cons: "Same as above."
Pros: "empty seat next to me!"
Cons: "more cramped than akld to doha"
Pros: "The hospitality of this airliners is unprecedented"
Cons: "Nothing. Although the flight was delayed, we made up the time inflight. And the hospitality as 5 star."
Pros: "Very comfortable flight with excellent service."
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."
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."
Cons: "The TSA agents broke my phone and tried to hide it in a secured package with another of my electronics. I questioned why 1/3 phones were in secured and the others were not. I was told to not open the bag until I reached my destination. Lucky I opened it after I cleared security to find that the face of the phone had been shattered with glass shards sticking out, I bought this to the crews' attention and was told to send an email to a random email for the airlines and that the incident would be investigated later. So basically I was given the brush off. Worst experience I have had while flying."
Pros: "quick eficient"
Cons: "long flight"
Pros: "Very friendly service!"
Pros: "Great service and great meal options!"
Pros: "Flight was without any hitches, could have done better with boarding after the previous mishap of a 5 hour delayed flight and being forced to stay in Doha for a night which put everyone's schedules off by a day. Still, I would book another flight with Qatar airways for their efforts and overall good service."
Cons: "It would have been nice if Qatar Airlines also provided Priority Boarding for everyone on the flight that got delayed as there was a long line just to get to the boarding area."
Pros: "Crew was very accommodating."
Cons: "Nothing to report."
Pros: "Great crew members. Very friendly and helpful. Qatar Airways is great about providing pillows, blankets, ear plugs and eye masks. Really good food as well."
Cons: "The seats were very close together. With the tray folded out it was right against me without being extended. Leg room was cramped."
Pros: "smooth and on time with efficient service."
Pros: "Food was great and one of the flight attendant, who is a Filipina (didn't have the chance to get her name :() is very accommodating and very nice."

Pros: "Mi única incomodidad es que el vuelo iba repleto y fue imposible dormir en ese mínimo espacio de un asiento. Pero eso no es culpa de ellos, supongo..."
Pros: "Vegetarian food options"
Pros: "The trip was very pleasant as usual, being frequent flyer on Qatar airways since 2005, I can only tell that this is so far the best airline company. Great service.

Briefly, I love Qatar Airways and it is my first choice wherever I travel."
Cons: "So far nothing."
Pros: "Comfort, entertainment, amenities"
Cons: "You have to improve the food service. The food tasted horrible. You have to circulate the beverage cart more often."
Pros: "The service and staff was very good"
Cons: "I have nothing to complain about I think all the service was good"
Cons: "1- Flight from Delhi to Doha was very late, which made it chaotic for us to catch our connection at Doha 2- Entertainment choices were very limited"
Pros: "First of all I have taken Qatar airways to Europe and US HOVER when it comes to Third world like Asia and Africa the send thier most dirty broken airline!!in thialand the pressure was not right according to pilot we stayed on the run way 4 HOURS offered water wrf.? No one communicated with US I think your airline is typical Arab mentality unless you are white I. E American you don't give a shot about your costumers this is the second arb line I droped I will never take ur plane ever!! When I got to Doha all they did was through stupid voucher for food missed my flight no apology rude as staff disgusted y their behaviour and lack of care missed imprtant meetings NEVER AGAIN RACIST AIRLINE TREAT WHITES WITH RESPECT IT NOT BLACK'??

Pros: "Wifi in the plane is great"
Cons: "In the B10 gate of Doha airport are only 15 chairs and we were around 100 persons waiting to open the gate. It was uncomfortable In the flight Doha Phuket wi-fi did not work in the first economy sector. It was a big problem to us, it was necessary to go in the second part of the economy sector to stay over the wifi. The crew did not solve the issue."
Cons: "Better attitude of head attendant. Need to improve food. Not attentive."
Pros: "The crew is not so amazing and the food is not so good.They only serve pork and sea food..i don't eat those food for my religion and i asked for another food anything as long as i had something for im starving, for they never had another food to give? You mean i cannot have food while boarding the plane? Im starving and they don't gibe us any food to eat even if i asked them if theres anything . And that is a total not agreeable we are 3 people riding the plane myself and my kids and we did not have anything to eat. The crew is rude when I asked something instead of looking for another food is theres any. I paid for my flight including the food and i was not able to eat."
Cons: "Crew serving food should be nice and make sure that all passengers have food to eat especially if one, two or three or more doesn't eat pork and shrimp..if only i could i could transfer plane at that moment i will do it. Hope they will not feel the way i feel i was starving the whole flight.."
Pros: "Crew amazing."
Cons: "Food variety should be increased."
Cons: "Finest Airline and service I have encountered and I am almost 2 million miles!"
Pros: "Well fed and provided beverages on trip. Food not gourmet----but what do you expect? Crew was pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "Sure could use a little more leg room. I am 6'2"--so know I am taller than the average bear, but I think even a 5"8" man or woman finds the legroom a little tight---especially on a 15hr flight. On a 3 to 5 hour flight--OK. The legroom was durable--but you asked waht could be better and that point sticks out in my mind."
Pros: "Yes Crew were indeed amazing!"
Pros: "The flight was good"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Crew and the food"
Cons: "Seating was tight for me a big guy"
Cons: "The crew should be friendlier while they deliver their service."

Cons: "Passenger immediately behind said that they couldn't watch their movie properly when I wanted to recline my seat for sleeping position. Had to wait!!"
Pros: "Friendly service on time flight"
Cons: "Boarding for premium economy had no special boarding. We were forced to stay in a long long line even though we paid almost double the fair with premium economy. All our other flights we got earlier boarding. There was no explanation given when I asked"
Cons: "Too cramped not enough space staff are not friendly will not fly Cathay again"
Cons: "The stopover in Hong Kong was longer than I would have liked."
Cons: "Original itinerary was not followed. Flight from manila to hongkong was late. 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."
Pros: "More leg room"

Cons: "Nothing I like about this airline. Boarding is a mess. The food sucks. The flight attendants are just ok. I don’t plan to use this airline again."
Pros: "The flight crew showed great hospitality and quality service. Leg room was amazing and the food too. I recommend this flight to those going to and from Manila. Make sure to find a stopover that's less than 3 hours long if you have a connecting flight for example from SFO- Hong Kong to Manila"
Cons: "I believe the entertainment could be better. Other than that the flight is legitimate.."
Pros: "All went to schedule and flight attendants very good"
Pros: "Had a nice meal, 2 hours 20 min flight. very nice"
Pros: "Very efficient service and prompt arrivals unlike United Airlines.aircraft was modern and equipment was generally well maintained."
Cons: "What other snack options available other than Ramen Noodles. Maybe a low carb option is needed. There are some noodles made from soy products and these will be low carbohydrate. Seats in economy are ok for short people. All airlines should designate an infant seating area close to toilets. This way all infants will be restricted to these seats and the noise pollution in the aircraft is restricted to a small section of the ship.these seats can be specially configured to either seat a no rmal adult or a fast attachments for a baby carrier."

Pros: "Everything! Very organized!"
Pros: "The service, the plane, friendly staff all throughout"

Pros: "In-flight entertainment"
Cons: "Small portion of food"
Pros: "What a difference after getting off BA! Staff wonderful, always happy to help and always a smile. PE seats on new A350 are great, although too much cheap, hard plastic on seat back. Very comfortable with great pitch. Food exceptional and beautifully presented. Dim sum for breakfast was sensational. Pier Business class lounge breathtaking, with several large rooms with different food options, served to you - the fresh made noodles a must - and a staffed, well stocked bar. Absolutely gorgeous space."

Pros: "Everything was fantastic all services was really awesome. It was my first time to flight Cathy and i was amazed"

Cons: "Boarding seemed to be chaotic !"

Pros: "I'm pregnant and the crew was extra helpful"
Cons: "although we prebooked seats when we arrived the morning of our flight we were told the flight was fully booked and we'd have to sit separately. What doesn't make sense is that our tickets were booked together, same confirmation number same family name. Why would they assign seats not seated together? This happened for both flights, luckily, however, they managed to seat us together on our return trip although not the seats we had selected."

Pros: "It was just ok. We landed safely. No entertainment, no food choice, just a safe flight. Crew was nice and spoke English well. However they’re liars. They made multiple promises they didn’t deliver like a vegetarian food choice and bulkhead emergency seat. Better to deny it than to lie."
Cons: "I asked for coffee, the stewardess repeated coffee to me and I got orange juice, which was ok because I like Orange juice too. I speak several languages too and was impressed they spoke English well. I guess it was just being busy and under stress. I was promised a bulkhead emergency seat and not given one. There was a emergency seat open right next to me but it never got on my ticket."

Cons: "Food was unappetizing. They didn't provide much liquids and we we're not able to use cell phones even on airplane mode. The whole flight was hot. I have tried other airlines and this was not even close to the service that other airlines provide. Won't be using this airline again."
Cons: "When we were checking in at the China Eastern ticket counter in MANILA, The customer service rep left the counter to talk to the supervisor. She didn't say anything to us until I asked if there was a problem. She explained what the problem was and said everything was ok., but never told us that our flight schedule was changed in Shanghai. We didn't realize until we arrived in Shanghai and they were rushing use to get to the boarding area. We were suppose to have a 10 hour layover. Airline moved our flight up to 10:45 am from 8:00pm.

Cons: "a supposed direct flight of 3.5 hrs, took 8 hours to finally arrive... we werent even notified that the plane wouldnt be taking off because of "bad weather" at the destination until being on the plane already for 3 hrs! then after another 2 hours finally took off and a medical emergency with one of the passengers occurs on board! what is more, everywhere else international this airline allows 2 bags each, EXCEPT to the Philippines...and only 20kg at that!!

Cons: "All flights were late on average bynan hour. Cabin crew barely understood English. Western menu was ho hum. 'Hot' towels were cold and had an odd smell. Lounges were disgusting, in shanghai one toilet, no doorhandle just a hole where it used to be. Hate to think whst economy was like."
Pros: "i like the red eye flight they offer from lax to mnl....stopover in shanghai is not too long, just enough to freshen up and have a snack in a relaxing phase."
Cons: "they had 2 new movies only for that long flight, the rest are all re-runs....mediocre food and service..."
Cons: "The bad breakfast was only cold carbohydrate products loaded with wheat flour and sugar, There wasn't enough drink service. The crew spoke almost no English and the one or two members that did I couldn't understand. No individual entertainment system."
