Everything was great

Read more about Singapore Airlines

Everything was great

Would fly no other airline on an 18 hour flight. Exceptional inflight service. Flight took off on time and landed early.

Great airline

The service was outstanding and cabin crew were friendly and approachable. Beverage service was regular throughout the flight, but the quality of the food could have been better, even for Premium Economy.

The staff was great. The food really wasn’t good

Cons: "Better movie selection. Better organized boarding in Frankfurt"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed for 25 min and was no information for that. Otherwise everything was good"
Pros: "The crew is usually really good."
Cons: "The ground staff at Frankfurt airport was not very good. Seemed slow lazy and difficult at times"
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Pros: "Very cramped seats"
Pros: "Food, Entertainment."
Cons: "Harder than usually landing"
Pros: "everything..Singapore airlines is a amazing airline !!! there is a reason why they are no 1 for so many years..."
Pros: "Crew amazing. Seat super comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Excellent service"
Pros: "Extra leg room, great service and good food."
Cons: "The entertainment system feels dated (no touch screen) manual rewinding of movies, selection of movies"
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."
Cons: "Screaming children. Totally clueless, rude flight crew. Next time kids are screaming for three hours straight on a red eye, maybe offer the parents some assistance. Makes the “perks” like hot towels seem ridiculous when staff are completely indifferent."
Pros: "Great service always smiling, flight on time, overall a great way to fly."
Pros: "Cabin crew was top notch - even in coach they could not be more accommodating and customer friendly. US airline flight attendants don’t even come close to this team that truly serviced the cabin for 8 hours continuously without the typical hiding in the back of the plane and chatting. Very encouraging that genuine care in the air is very much alive and well on Singapore Air! I will fly them every chance I get!"
Cons: "That my flight had to end and I know my next US airline flight won’t come close to this kind of experience! Air travel doesn’t have to be a cattle herding process with peanut treats on cross country flights - shame on the US carriers - I strongly suggest they fly Singapore Air to see what true customer service feels like!"
Pros: "Finally, I could go to my final destination as planned by transmitted to Korean Air flights."
Cons: "My first flight of JetBlue from Olandor to New York was delayed that leading to my connecting flights to my destination were missed. Now, my suitcases have been missed, too."
Pros: "It's not the cheapest way to fly but it's a great way to cross the Atlantic. Seats are big enough for 2, really. Lay flat beds make the night crossing east tolerable. You really can get several hours sleep. The cabin crew is outstanding, patient, and extremely responsive to requests. Two meals served were excellent. Entertainment choices were complete. After a number of flights in Economy on other airlines I'm spoiled by Singapore Airlines and also by Business Class. And their fares seemed much less than others for the JFK to FRA route. Had no idea this level of luxury existed on an airplane."
Cons: "My seat assignment was moved without explanation on our return flight, FRA to JFK. That was disappointing. The gate folks were apologetic but no real explanation given."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "Flight attendants were bot friendly, appearwd to be botheted when askes questions or requests were made."
Pros: "Staff was polite and accommodating"
Pros: "I dropped my scarf and only realized after I was seated. People were still boarding and I told a young man attendant and he found it and brought it to me. And he was such a gentleman too! Wish I knew his name but it was Frankfurt to JFK 835am flight on April 3rd. Thank you again!"
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "Singapore was fine and helpful with a crazy problem JustFly created then didn’t fix."
Cons: "JustFly billed the wrong price, then to fix that,created a new ticket with my name misspelled and failed to cancel the original ticket. We later upgrade seats via Singapore then discovered the duplicate booking and misspelling. To fix that JustFly cancelled the booking with the seat upgrade. Singapore restored our upgrade at the airport but only on one direction so we had to go through it all again."
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."
Pros: "wide seats. great service. on time."
Cons: "food was not as good as one would expect."
Pros: "That the A380 was only 70%full, resulting in me getting three seats to myself. I was able to stretch out and sleep for most of the flight. Food and service were top notch. Better value than Lufthansa or American, for the overall flight experience. You could fly cheaper, but not better, in economy."
Cons: "Though we landed early at JFK, we had a one hour wait on the tarmac until one of the only two gates capable of receiving an A380 opened up."
Pros: "Friendliness"
Pros: "Ontime, airline stewards were excellent and tv entertainment very good"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Excellent service & comfort"
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Best serves ever will fly every time"
Pros: "Love the service at Singapore Air. Very attentive and accommodating."
Cons: "Security at Frankfurt airport was horribly slow. Also, audio jack didn't work properly. Not sure how often that's checked."
Pros: "I got in some exercise during the delays and gate changes"
Cons: "Delay after delay, gate changes, lack of care from employees, missed a day of vacation in Germany, missed out on photos and memories"
Cons: "Extremely cramped flight in regular Economy."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive and professional"
Cons: "Return flight the movies were the same as three weeks earlier."
Pros: "The crew, the food and the comfort was fantastic. I was in economy and even with a full flight I was still comfortable."
Cons: "It would have been nice if wifi was free considering it was such a long flight"
Pros: "Crew was attentive and nice."
Cons: "Cabin was beat up and worn out."
Pros: "everything great, every time again"
Pros: "The meals were great, the seats very comfortable, the entertainment system very good as well."
Cons: "The Internet was very expensive and very little. I was disappointed, and had to ask 3 times to different attendants to help me set it up. They were not acquainted with the process at all."
Pros: "The flight experience was pretty great overall.."
Cons: "I didn't like that interacting with their websitewas not very iser friendly or reliable. While most domestic airlines allow you to easuly interact with your itinerary I pretty much had to just show up and hope everything worked out. Also no alerts or other functions."
Pros: "The food was great!"
Cons: "The announcements coming from the boarding crew were not clear or hardly under stable."
Pros: "Everything, got to love how smooth those A380s are, plus the service and food is impeccable. Also so much entertainment!"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "This was the second time that we were able to fly to Germany with Singapore airline. I will always try to fly with them in the future. I have been on numerous transcontinental trips and I rank them as number one. They make me feel like I am welcome."
Cons: "There was very little leg room for people over five feet tall. Everything else was exceptional."
Pros: "Service is good even in economy class."
Cons: "Chairs on the new A380 although more comfortable than the Boeing 777 are still very uncomfortable for sleeping in the economy class. Plane is so big that it takes a while for first and business class to load and unload. Luggage took forever to unload for the same reason."
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."
Cons: "Like in all airplanes in economy the seats are too close , but when you cannot afford to fly differently it was okay, there was at least leg room."

Free wifi!

Great, easy experience. Good lounge, excellent experience

Cons: "Baggage allowance is lower than most other airlines"

Cons: "Repeatedly delayed, almost missed my next flight"
Pros: "The food we were served was of excellent quality which is so unusual when it comes to airline meals, crew and service was great as well. Obviously Air NewZealand have a far better understanding of what there customer base require compared to their competitors"
Cons: "Could not fault anything"
Cons: "Very nice services"
Cons: "After scanning boarding passes at gate, flight crew required us to show them again at the plane door. We had already stowed our phones, as I think others had.

Cons: "Perfect flight. Delicious meals. Great crew."
Pros: "Safety"
Cons: "The flight was not on time There was no food on the plane for us even though we paid “full service carrier” price There were very few free movies!!! This is horrible. We wished we’d flown with Jetstar - lack of everything like with air New Zealand but at least the price would be much lower!"

Pros: "Very friendly staff. Free wine and cheese or choices of cookies—extra servings too."
Cons: "Seats are just standard—headrest part doesn’t adjust"
Pros: "Great customer service. We flew on Air New Zealand and United, and the contrast was big. ANZ stewards showed much higher level of pride in serving their passengers."

Cons: "No plug in"
Pros: "a) My vegetarian meal the I specially requested. b) The customer service on the phone, before my trip in California and the customer service of the flight attendants on the two flights of my trip. c) The blanket and pillow every passenger was offered on the long-haul flight from San Francisco to Auckland. d) The pilot or pilots handled the small amount turbulence we on the plane felt well so I did not feel uneasy at those times."

Cons: "No complaints here."
Pros: "Fantastic crew!"

Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Entertainment was good. That’s was about it."
Cons: "The food was horrible. It’s hard to believe the airline would serve food like that. The flight is long and hard enough as it is. The “snack” options listed are not available. Only one option is available and it’s was horrrible. Also, a kid friendly menu or option needs to be available. The crew wasn’t very friendly either."

Cons: "Surprised by a snarky employee at gate check for my connecting flight home today. I fly with AA nearly every week for work. They grabbed my bag from me and insisted it be checked. I said I didn’t want to pay for checking and that it contained fragile items. It was a little over-stuffed for the scale. When I went to open it and remove some bulky items to put in my purse, they snatched my suitcase away and refused to let me touch my bag. I find this to be completely unacceptable. They had the gall to suggest I go to an airport store, buy a “suitable suitcase,” and take a later flight home. They made a scene and called a supervisor who kindly and promptly let me in my suitcase. The employee then spoke negatively about me loudly to nearby colleagues and refused to make eye contact. After the supervisor let me in my bag, I got on the plane with my suitcase. At one point, this employee made me feel like I was going to be kicked off of my flight; this was so unnecessary and extremely unprofessional. AA - your employees are better than this."
Pros: "Attentive and friendly crew."
Pros: "Great flight. Nice airplanes and friendly hostesses."
Pros: "On time take off"
Pros: "Everything was on time and great."
Cons: "Ever thing was fine."
Pros: "Just being able get home."
Cons: "After madly rushing to get to the gate, we found out 5 minutes before scheduled boarding time that there would be a 15 minute delay in boarding. After that, we were told there would be another 30 minute delay. Once we were on board and the cabin doors were closed we were told there would be another 55 minute delay. Also, LGA is such a mess these days due to construction and would have been nice to get an email notification beforehand about it. We barely made our outgoing flight!"
Cons: "Everything was great."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Both flights, to and from around had to go search for my baggage and on the return flight I even had to go to a different terminal. The service is unacceptable. I will never fly with AA again."
Cons: "Older plane"
Pros: "A short flight that was even shorter because we arrived early. Luggage arrived promptly at Baggage Claim, too. American has flights between Chicago and New York practically every hour, which is very convenient. They might as well have a shuttle. Gate staff and flight attendants friendly and helpful. Love the upgraded individual consoles for the entertainment."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Also quick and painless flight"
Cons: "Flight attendants where kind of rude."
Cons: "I paid extra money to sit in the front of the plane due to traveling with my dog... when I looked at my boarding pass I realized I was sitting in the last row of the plane ... the cabin was booked and they could not move my seat! Really upsetting and frustrating!"
Pros: "On time departure/early arrival"
Cons: "Boarding g process a bit chaotic"
Cons: "No gluten free snacks"
Pros: "the flight was on time coming and going"
Cons: "Itthe ground staff (red coat agents) at MIA extremely unhelpful and arrogant. I am visually impaired, asked for assistance to check luggage, asked for assistance and was simply tol to go to end of the line at a counter that was at least fifty yards away. Upon my. O planning of the lack of service as simply to go talk to the manager."
Cons: "Baggage claim took extremely long time. It took a while before the baggage crew even became aware of situation."
Pros: "The gate crew in Roanoke were professional and helpful. The next day's flight was on time and uneventful."
Cons: "The flight attendant was unfriendly at boarding. He did not say or play any pre-flight safety announcements. We were told the flight might have to refuel in Richmond due to major weather delays in LGA. When we were landing they said they expected a refuel and a quick turnaround in Richmond. On the plane after landing, I learned via my phone's internet the flight was cancelled. They never announced it on the plane. At the final moment before we disembarked, the crew told us to be sure to take our belongings. When we landed, Flightaware showed delays of 45 minutes at LGA. AA never took responsibility for the problem though the gate crew mentioned they canceled the flight because the crew was going to be over their maximum hours. AA really couldn't plan to allow for up to an hour delay? I feel disrespected and even deceived. Although it was clear that flight attendant really needed to get off that plane. At the gate, we were told there were no available flights to NYC and were stranded overnight in Richmond. AA did offer a hotel pretending it was a courtesy since they claimed the problem was weather related and not theirs. We chose to stay with relatives and were told AA could only provide transportation from the airport which we did not need. We often have problems and cancellations on this route from when it was branded a US Air route to the present, but this was egregious."
Cons: "Refer to above. Both flights were horrible."
Pros: "Volare con American"
Cons: "No snacks offered! No alcohol drinks offered!"

Pros: "Timeliness"
Pros: "Flight was smooth, boarding was smooth, made good time in the air despite slight delay"
Cons: "We sat on the plane at the gate and then on the tarmac for quite awhile after some delays, but the air conditioning wasn't working. It was incredibly hot, uncomfortable, and I felt sick due to the temperature in the cabin It's just unacceptable to have to sit there in that condition!"
