Airline reviews

They were able to assist my elderly father and myself after not being able to check in to scoot. The counter service was phenomenal. They did what they could to get us on the next plane so we could catch our Connecting flight. Scoot closed early on us so we ended up missing our flight.

They were able to assist my elderly father and myself after not being able to check in to scoot. The counter service was phenomenal. They did what they could to get us on the next plane so we could catch our Connecting flight. Scoot closed early on us so we ended up missing our flight.

Transfer within the same terminal and lots of facilities at the airport.

Even though it was a very full flight, the service was still excellent, the plane did not feel too cramped and cabin crew made a sincere effort to help passengers find overhead space for stowing luggage.

I did not like anything. Flight experience was bad overall.

The stewardess was very helpful all the way. My seat had an issue with headphones and after the replaced and gave me a new pair and noticed it was the seat I got a new chair to sit and a great ride back home

The seat comfort, the food and of course the crew, they made you feel welcome and relaxed 😊

Due to the delay of my first flight, my connecting flight with JetBlue was canceled by Singapore Airlines, but the JetBlue crew was very accommodating and rebooked a seat for me. The crew was very nice and had good attitude.

We started with a 2 hour delay due to some airplane technical issues, and while we got a little snack pack, it was a pretty long delay for SQ. The flight itself was short, there's no entertainment on the B737-800 and there's a small snack. Functional.

Flight attendants seemed a little more stressed out than in past Singapore flights. Not sure if that was because we had a completely full flight or if it was because it was just before Christmas. Food was decent but someone needs to update their Indian Vegetarian menus to ensure more variety, less duplication of items (Parathas included in2 different formats) and less dairy.

Always on time. Clean and good service as always..great food too..thank you SQ, the best airline in the world👍👍👍

Crew were pleasant, happy to be there and were a joy to be around. Entire operation was professional, well thought out and ran like a Swiss clock.

United flight from SFO to PDX was cancelled. I will ask for a refund. Had to book on Alaska

Good food and entertainment options. Great Staff that were all welcoming and caregiving.

Flight was canceled due to technical issue shortly before the check-in counters opened. Passengers were rebooked on a flight three days later. Request to be accommodated on Air Tahiti Nui could not be processed. Customer service sorted out the refund after calling and being put on hold for almost an hour.

Carring crew, nice ambiance of the cabin, comfortable beds, good food well served. We liked everything.

2 of the 6 economy toilets were out of order. Drinks were not offered often enough - you have to order on-screen, which is often unavailable. Snacks and Milo ran out very early. Crew was fine but I think there was a sticking issue

Flight attendants are always pleasant and helpful. Pilot kept us updated.

No refunds for flights that I could not take due to Covid restrictions

Pros: "The crew was very very attentive. Asked if we wanted water at least 4 times in the first 3 hours of the 12 hour flight before bed. (Red eye flight) They did there jobs well."
Cons: "The dinner choices have been exactly the same for many years now. It’s probably time to bring the menu up to the times again. Food wasn’t bad but it does need a refresh."
Pros: "Regional flight so only one cabin attendant. Pleasant and attentive."
Cons: "Wider seats but tha'ts the nature of smaller aircraft"

Seat and leg space is much better than the Qatar airline. The crew I would like to say is not meeting the requirements of emirates airlines cause it almost 20 years I am flying with emirates this time I really feel that crew is not behaving well someone asked for water waited more than 30 minutes and there are more incidents in this flight.

Check-in process at Bengaluru airport was atrociously slow. Emirates should allow baggage drop option after online check-in and verification of documents. The rest of the flight was quite good and we didn't have any complaints.

Food was not eadable. Testless and not apealing. order for indian vegitarian, recived spice less. combination of main course and side iteams are far away from traditonal food, serve less iteams. , but eadoble. Thanks

Serving food took so long . Almost time close to lend. Plus during landing air pressure in cabin cuss ear blocked took long time to unblock.

Emirates is usually on time, but not this trip. Also, during the flight the attendants disappear unless called upon. Very strange. I have watched the quality of Emirates service diminish over the last five years.

Crew in Hyderabad could have been more helpful they were only focused on ripping customers.

We had a connecting flight which is got delayed they didn’t transfer me to another flight and up I have to by 3 new tickets and I have to pay extra luggage fees cost me rs 100000

Meals was mis-served inspite of selecting vegetarian food! I was served non- veg in both flights ie., IAD to Dubai and Dubai to Hyderabad. Staff was not that friendly

The flight was delayed in Jhb and I could have had some help in Dubai trying to get to my connecting flight to London

Staff not as attentive as they were Return flight was rushed for food I believe that Emirates are high prices for what they offer now Can't fault entertainment system

Estheticly the plane looks great, although the seats are way too upright. If the seats were just slightly more reclined then the comfort level would increase tenfold. I had the stiffest neck after just a short flight due to this. A nap was almost out of the question.

Cabin crew were very professional and welcoming. They certainly appeared to have lifted their game. Congratulations

I know not directly a Virgin "thing" but I hold Virgin responsible for their subcontractors. Had to wait 45 minutes waiting for baggage at PER before the belt conveyor even started. This is unacceptable and hopefully Virgin engages with whoever to pull their fingers out. I realise PER staff are generally slow at the best of times but this was ridiculous. Maybe more seating for those waiting, a cafe in the baggage area for a light meal while we wait or at the very least a troop of dancing girls to entertain the punters while they stare at the conveyor belt start light almost willing it to fire up.

Plane was cancelled apparently no seat available on any flight so late in the day I would have missed my connecting flight

Virgin flights are always on time, check in is always smooth with helpful staff. The air crew are friendly and helpful. Luggage comes out quickly and in good shape. We didn't have food or entertainment, it was only a short flight, so I can't comment on those.

The flight was canceled. And I had to book on Jetstar to get home

Everything was great. The flight was on time, the staff were friendly and professional and the flight was over before we knew it!

Check in staff were unhelpful with information on delayed flight and impact on boarding, luggage weight restrictions. One suitcase was 24.4 kg, the attendant was rude and unhelpful with assisting. Travelling with a family of 5 and young kids makes it more stressful having delays/issues with connecting flights/luggage. Will be travelling qantas.

Booked myself & 2 year old granddaughter on flight. Didn't select seats as had hoped to request when checking in at airport an empty seat next to us if available. Plane was full so not possible. BUT - the seats the system had allocated us were not together!!! I suggested this would be very relaxing for me, but probably not so much for the passenger seated with my lovely & very chatty granddaughter!!! The staff member checking us in worked their magic so we were seated together - but it seems an oversight when the booking is made with the age of child stated that seats would not automatically be allocated together. Cabin crew were fab!

Pros: "Unable to fly due to KAYAK incompetency"
Cons: "KAYAK actually responding as promised to contact myself and airline to facilitate change of booking date due to COVID."

I was allocated an exit row seat and was told to move so it could be given away to someone who had purchased two extra legroom seats and one regular seat but wanted the three to sit together. I was also charged for entertainment after booking but before checking in, and the ground crew couldn't do anything about refunding it. When the whole plane was given access to the entertainment as an apology for the flight being four hours late, I was told they couldn't do anything about that either, so I was charged for something I didn't want even though it would have been free anyway

The price difference/saving isn't sufficient to compensate the experience difference, don't recommend unless flight is under 3 hours. Huge queues for check in and the priority lane of other ailines blocked checked in Jetstar passengers from proceeding through to screening. Gate change to a "dungeon gate" that didn't have toilets in the vicinity. 45minute delay in boarding, no updates or explaination, let alone apology for any inconvenience. 1 scanner working for a full fight to board, no coordination. Loaded on to crowded buses to get on the plane in the middle of the tarmac, up stairs with no explaination. 4 bus trips. No system for boarding in sections. Over an hour late departing. Nothing complimentary, not even water or in-flight music. Pay wave not available and no cash sales. Staff onboard were friendly and professional.

Plane was late leaving darwin so we didn’t get home till 1130pm 2nd time in a fortnight that has happened. Hard when you have to work the next day

Captains address to passengers was excellent. Knee room in seating was very uncomfortable.

The plane was new. There are two rows of business 2 x 2, but the seat pitch is the same as the rest of the plane (3 x 3). Carry ons must be weighed and tagged before boarding. Do this at home to avoid nasty surprises.

They had issues with the plane prior to boarding. You could see it in the gate lounge staff. An hour after the plane was supposed to have taken off, we were still in the gate lounge, not a peep from the staff. Couldn’t seem to bring themselves to give a single verbal update. Then, they give some odd partial message verbally - plane has been downgraded. It’s not going anywhere. We need 37 people with carry on only to volunteer to go onto another flight + we’ll give you a $200 voucher - so this caused chaos, as people rushed to the desk. No mention of what those with checked baggage should do. About another 20 mins later, another lady at the desk makes a reference to going to another gate but stops mid sentence. Fed up, I approach the desk and ask if they can give some clear instructions to those that have checked baggage about what we should do. Another lady then gives a message over the PA telling those with checked baggage to go to a different gate. So we go to the new gate, spend an hour there waiting while the confusion between staff and passengers continues. Eventually board only to sit on the plane for about another hour as confused staff clearly have too many people on the plane and not enough seats. They finally figure it out and the flight leaves 3h25mins late. Things like this happen all the time I’d imagine, so you’d think dealing with it should be their bread and butter. Keep customers updated. Give clear instructions. Apologise for the delays. Not hard, but seemingly all lost on the Jetstar team that day. Pathetic.

The plane layout is built for short haul domestic flights. 3-3-3 configuration in economy is ridiculous for ~10 hour international flight.

On time and well-priced... For a short flight, what more do you need?

Every single one of my flight were delayed. On top of that when I asked for water I didn’t get it the first time. I had to ask for it multiple of time.

No entertainment at all and any food or drinks had to be ordered and paid for...crew was ok as they looked more worried about Covid rules and restrictions instead of the well being of myself as a passenger...
