Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The boarding process was easy and straightforward, the seats were comfortable and had individual entertainment screens, the crew was very polite and helpful. For meals, everyone was given a printed menu at the start of the flight so that meal options could be easily made."
Cons: "My only complaint is that I would have liked to see more frequent offers for water refills during the flight, since water cups are so small and staying well hydrated on flights is difficult but essential."
Pros: "I liked the size of the cups for drinks: smaller than usual."
Cons: "You could train some of your crews to behave more polite to the customers like they do in the Japanese airlines. Male crews tended to be nicer than female crews."
Cons: "WiFi didn’t work on 3 of the 4 flights although all purportedly had it. Also didn’t work the majority of the time in the Business Class Lounge in Singapore. Food was mediocre both on flights and in the lounge. Movie selection could hardly have been worse."
Cons: "Flat bed in business class was disappointing. No way anyone taller than 6’ could stretch out. Overall, it was an inferior experience to business class on Cathay Pacific, which sets the standard IMO."
Cons: "Flight was canceled. They moved passengers to the Lufthansa but didn’t tell us even though we checked with the counter every 20 min. Apparently a text went out that we didn’t get"
Pros: "I like everything crew, etc"
Cons: "Nothing reallly"
Cons: "Luggages weren’t transferred to Bali together with my flight. Gate check in stroller was sent to baggage claim without notification. I was waiting the whole time after exiting plane."
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: "Excellent customer service, helpful staff"
Cons: "Food was unpalatable - HNML. Needs to be improved, the beans in a tomato sauce looked like a tin of dice tomatoes was poured over the boiled beans. Chicken curry didn’t taste good either as it was over cooked. Didn’t relish the vermicelli dessert or the salmon. Thanks for the roll & lactose free butter, the cheese and biscuits"
Pros: "Flight time"
Pros: "We loved the service, quality of food, entertainment, and cleanliness of Singapore Airlines flight!"
Cons: "Economy is still tightly packed with limited leg room considering the distance traveled."
Pros: "Again friendly and efficient staff and a smooth flight. Best features of Singapore Airlines."
Cons: "The business class seats were smaller than I thought and not so comfortable as the 777. The seats are hard and ungiving and when you sleep on them you really feel it. Plus the flatbed lay out meant you were basically lying in a question mark position, not so goof for tall people like my husband. The food was good but uninteresting and I think for an overnight flight there should be more smaller,lighter, non spicy options offered rather that full dinners."
Pros: "Scoot employees were really helpful, I missed my flight from Singapore to Kochi because by the time the passengers got off the flight and went through immigration in Singapore, the check in counter had closed, and there was no more flights available to Kochi until 2 days later. The employees made sure I boarded my flight and I came home to my sister’s wedding"
Cons: "Kayak doesn’t specify its two separate tickets for my destination to kochi from Honolulu, also they didn’t specify their would be a stop in Japan before the flight reached Singapore. The flights were delayed by a few minutes, which led to me stressing to make it on time to my flights, and I felt dehydrated and nauseous. Also the website doesn’t specify that we will have to purchase meals either before hand or on board, and that the airlines only took cash and no credit card. It was miserable, a whole 20+ hour flight with lots of stress of catching my flight, checking and the checking my baggage, and being hungry and thirsty because I didn’t carry enough cash on me."
Cons: "The desserts. The bun."
Pros: "Excellent attention to service and comfort."
Pros: "Staff was polite and accommodating"
Pros: "The main course"
Cons: "Items missing or substituted in the veg but was ok in regular meals. In one veg serving, no salad or dessert was included. Margarine instead of butter for only in the veg meal."
Pros: "Ease of check in, very quick."
Cons: "Older plane, entertainment system incredibly slow, plane needs tidying up, starting to look its age."
Cons: "In spite of ordering vegetarian food, was offered a non-vegetarian option and was told that is Asian vegetarian. Food quality was bad too."
Cons: "My flight was delayed by 2 hours so I missed my connecting flight in Singapore. There was a huge queue of people who missed their connecting flight cos of an accident in the runway. The airline did nothing to prepare for this situation. It took hours to get another flight organised, communication was non existent and refreshments took ages to come. Airline didn't help with finding a hotel for stranded passengers."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Not as good as they were once"
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: "Had to drive to Huston. Can we get rid of BA and American and just have Singapore handle the flights at DFW?"
Pros: "I've always flown Singapore airlines wherever possible. Standards are unbeatable until this flight..."
Cons: "The dinner was terrible. I am a long time customer of Singapore Airlines and I know where the standard are. The food on this flight was the worst I've seen. The starter (vermicelli) was overly salty, dry and severely undercooked. The main course was acceptable but the portion of chicken was more like side dish not main. Missing sides."
Pros: "The A380 is an amazing plane. The flight was smooth and the engine sounds were fairly low."
Cons: "Waiting on line to check in was more than a half hour although there were probably only 10 people ahead of me. Got a hard time on the weight of my carry-on being more than 7kg although I had to point out that my ticket allowed me two bags that were 23kg each - I had nothing to check. Eventually, when I pointed out that I could wear enough of the clothes from the carry on, they agreed to let me take it on. On board, the service was cold, bland and infrequent. The entertainment system lost sound perhaps 20 minutes into the flight."
Pros: "friendly staff top Service top Inflight"
Cons: "new aircraft, 2 x usb charging ports, 50+ movies, very quiet aircraft."
Cons: "Foods serving were too slow for economy class. Not enough selections for entertainment."
Pros: "The service, kind and pleasant."

Pros: "ending meal was very late like an hour or less before landing"
Cons: "racial discrimination by the flight attendants thinking that I didn't know Japanese language even though I was white. I could see it happening."
Pros: "New movies! Yes!"
Cons: "I asked for one of the crew to help me bring up my carry-on luggage, as i'm just recovering from a flu at that time. Instead the FA looked at my bag and asked me in an irritated tone if my bag was really that heavy? I said I was recovering and I just need an extra push once I lift it up into the cabin. In the end she did help but i did not appreciate her attitude and felt disappointed my whole flight."
Pros: "The trend to offer more comfort in Economy Plus and similar leads, of course to less comfort in normal Economy class. The ticket price was certainly attractive but it is doubtful that it was good value. Economy Plus might not be good value either."
Cons: "Barely enough legspace. Some seats recline more than others, if you're sitting behind one of those you're out of luck."
Pros: "Red wine was good"
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!!!"
Pros: "Not much turbulence"
Pros: "Such incredible staff. Always Willing to go above and beyond! I flew 17 hours with them and they made the flight a breeze. Great airline, will be flying with Singapore again"
Cons: "Really nothing. I loved flying with them."
Pros: "Staff was the best, always smiling and going beyond expectations to assure you enjoy your flight and I certainly did. Take off was a breeze. Landing a little bumpy but nothing to cry about. I will fly Singapore whenever possible from now on."

Cons: "No real dramas"
Cons: "Old plane. Old in flight entertainment."
Cons: "Headphones were not functioning properly"

Pros: "Great flight amazing service"
Pros: "Great food. Very fresh looking flight attendants. Awesome personal entertainment system."
Cons: "Service has faltered recently. I had asked fo Riesling, and the flight attendant said they would bring later. Never did. Also, they no longer offer various Crabtree and Evelyn products in bathroom, and my night pack didn't even come with a visor to cover my eyes for sleeping."
Pros: "It was a standard flight"

Cons: "Check in was terrible Long slow moving lines to just drop a bag! Can definitely improve as it is not like this anywhere any longer"
Pros: "I would have liked for them to refund my ticket even though I asked them to. They ignored my request and I didn't get to go on to the plane but I still paid for it."

Pros: "Service was very good despite our one hour delay! Everyone was appropriately apologetic though."

Cons: "Please check your visa requirements is your flight is just a stopover in NZ to AUS (or elsewhere) as I could not return due to unfair transit visa issues in NZ. Have to book another one way flight and pay. completely nuts. I was not warned anywhere till I reached the airport."
Pros: "It was a very pleasant surprise to receive an upgrade at the boarding gate to a Skycouch. While I was too tall to make use of it my wife was able to use two thirds of it and get a good sleep. The flight attendants were excellent, friendly, warm attentive presenting the very best of Kiwi hospitality."
Cons: "Nothing - everything was a shining example as to why Air New Zealand continues to be rated so highly."
Pros: "arrived early at destination ground crew helpful with seating"
Cons: "That is didn’t happen until the next day"
Pros: "Most of the flight attendants were helpful and friendly"
Cons: "One of my pet dislikes would be when some passengers have oversized carryon luggage that take up all the room in the overhead compartment of their own and the next one! My bag was about 3 compartments in front of me, which I didn’t mind, until someone tried to claim my bag as theirs..."
Pros: "Very smooth, uneventful flight, perfect, in other words"
Pros: "Food vegan was good on all sectors"
Cons: "The aisles are very narrow especially in economy hard for a older person to negotiate"

Cons: "For an economy class series of trips, I have nothing bad to report."
Pros: "Everything was ok"
Pros: "The staff lady told me to there’s no food available then I told I need to buy it last time my flight was Jetstar was good even everyone can buy food on board but leta I called Chinese lady understood how I was hungry she brought me bread with batter and coffee that’s was good and best service I always thank to her service"
Pros: "Air NZ are great. Kayak are not,"
Cons: "I couldn’t tell about the food and entertainment because even after several call to Kayak trying to upgrade to a flight where food and entertainment were included because it said “no meal service” on my itinerary I was assured they were included and what do you know. They weren’t. I will never be using Kayak again. Very poor serve from people I phoned. They did no know what they were doing."
Pros: "seat crew food entertainment"
Cons: "no wifi"
Pros: "Really quite comfortable seat and space wise Good to see entertainment still in the back seat"
Pros: "Purchased an exit row aisle seat - all the leg room I could ask for. Close to toilets - no odor issues. Good meals. Staff basically courteous (though not unfailingly - occasionally a tad blunt and titchy - a common experience for me on Air NZ)."
Cons: "Air NZ website states exit row seating purchase comes with priority boarding. When I asked about this at the gate counter I was told I would be seated by row number. Seems like this is a common issue with Air NZ - see e.g., skytrax website reviews. The website advertising is inaccurate if not false."
Pros: "Loved the crew, and entertainment options"
Cons: "Very little space in the aisle and between seats"
Pros: "Happy helpful crew"

Pros: "I was most impressed with the lovely flight attendants who were friendly and very kind and caring with my young adult daughter who has flying anxiety. They were so fantastic and really made a difference to her flight."
Pros: "Great seats in Premium Economy, although not all the functions seemed to be working! Crew were very helpful but the one in my area was very slow with the main meal - had to wait 90mins after we took off before I got my food Breakfast was very nice"
Cons: "Great seats in Premium Economy, although not all the functions seemed to be working! Crew were very helpful but the one in my area was very slow with the main meal - had to wait 90mins after we took off before I got my food"
Pros: "seats were large, comfortable. layed back nicely"
Pros: "10/10 best flight I've been on, 13.5 hr flight flew by"
Cons: "Koru club boards too late. If you're in rows 10 back then all the luggage space is taken."
"The boarding procedure was ABYSMAL. It is infuriating to be asked to "social distance" and wear masks when the airline is unable to conduct boarding in an organized and efficient way. The crew was totally incompetent in informing waiting passengers. No microphones. No digital display of boarding order. No staff assistance. Waiting for WAY too long with no explanation. It was perfectly awful. Food was eatable but completely tasteless. Not nearly enough liquid distribution."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. very helpful and great services."
Cons: "While waiting in the check-in line, it would be better if one of the crew would come and ask the travellers if they have got everything. cause I had my Covid test and it was negative. However, they said that my final destination place won't accept my test. rather me waiting on the line that was not moving ahead at all, I could have sort things out some way. So, it would be nice if the crew would come to the passenger on the line just to make sure they have everything right."
Pros: "The crew was super attentive. The seats were really confortable. I loved that the seat would completely flatten to make a « bed », wonderfully for sleeping!"
Cons: "The check in and boarding in Kathmandu was really not good. I requested wheelchair assistance when I booked, and was never offered a wheelchair nor any assistance for that matter ..."
Pros: "The crew was amazing and the food was delicious. The sit was comfortable with a lot of legroom."
Cons: "I like it the way it is. Keep doing the good job."

Cons: "Lost baggage maybe in Rome airport Conbecting flight qatar to vueling was worst"
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Food was average"
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: "There was not enough tome to catch my connecting flight and I had to stay in the airport an additional 6 hours and had to stay the night in the hotel and then get to Portland on another airline 21 hours later than planned."
Pros: "Air hostesses are classic.The plane very spacious ."
Cons: "Wait time to connect from Doha too longNo hotel accommodation."
Pros: "The wider space between all seats and the selection of the food"

Pros: "Entertainment was good. Food was good, I got the Hindu vegetarian. Also service from Nagpur to Doha is very convenient."

Pros: "The cabin crew and Doha airport staff are absolutely great at thinking about customer comfort. Experienced it in the Business Class lounge as well as on the flight!"
Cons: "Could add paper towels to toilets. Tissues are too soft to wash up and dry hands and face!"
Cons: "Everything was disappointing"
Pros: "Boarding from Doha and service in doha."
Cons: "ASSISTANCE IN DELHI..my parents did not even get wheel chair after long tiring journey..they were keep trying for help and did not get any help..I am asking is this the airline duty or not to give assistance who is in need.even did not get the porter to carry the heavy luggage.is anyone responsible for that? what is the use of this nonsense servey?"

Cons: "Not enough leg room and space between the chair in front."

Pros: "Exceptional staff, nothing too much trouble. The aircraft is new and all facitlies great. Will fly with Qatar again"
Pros: "free flowing wine and beer --- unlike previous flight on QA when the actual supervisor of the staff did not allow a proper stipend of the red wine --- also I witnessed her incivility to another passenger which was appalling -- the crew on this flight deserve to be commended"
Cons: "nothing on the actual flight --- but i felt we had been promised overnight hotel stay since the layover was 8 hours and 55 minutes --- if was not granted in spited of 2 eMails and promise at the time of booking"
Cons: "Poor choice of inflight movies"
Pros: "Much better knee space. Excellent flight, good service..."
Pros: "-Great selection of movies, Ted talks, and games to view on individual screens, headphones were provided. - Blankets and pillows were provided to everyone, along with a kit with toothbrush, toothpaste, socks, and eye mask. - Adjustable head rest."
Cons: "- Tiny, cramped seats and aisles. I'd heard the Quatar has more leg room than other airlines. This is definitely not true. If the person in front of me reclined all the way, they crushed my knees and I'm only 5'7". - Bathrooms were dirty by 4 hours into the 14 hour flight. Sinks clogged, garbage can overflowing. Not just one bathroom. Gross. - Worst flight attendant service I've ever had, and I don't expect much since I've traveled a lot. Service was rushed, coffee cart for our side of plane never arrived, when I walked to the back to ask for some, they couldn't find the milk and made a fuss about looking for sugar. Lots of similar examples throughout the flight. - The baggage claim carousel number never appeared on the screens at IAD after landing. Other flights showed but not Quatar. We waited a while then walked around to check them all until we found the right carousel. Never seen this happen before. - One of our bags never appeared, so we waited until all luggage had come out and checked with the counter. They found our bag somewhere and brought it over after a 20 minute wait. No explanation given. Good thing we'd counted bags."

Pros: "I have been in qatar airways many a times and they have done an excellent job connecting Kathmandu to outside world. The experience is usually very nice-the plane is in good condition, the fly crew are always smiling and helping, the food and entertainment are great."
Cons: "May be this is one time thing, but the ground crew were terrible, particularly the man who was on the check-in counter. Spoke with a robotic tone and was very rude. Spoke as if he owned the plane and we were asking for a free ride. Very disappointing start to a long journey."
Pros: "The crew was friendly, the flight went smoothly overall."
Cons: "I tried to request a vegan meal ahead of time but Hawaiian Airlines only offers special meal requests for international flights, which was very disappointing."
Cons: "I could not get a connection to any of the entertainment. Our flight Attendant, Hunter was awesome!!!! What a sweetheart and he was extremely attentive."
Pros: "Nothing to note"
Cons: "Seats were pretty uncomfortable and basic, crew had no idea what’s in the food they were handing out, there was no choice of what to eat except not to"
Pros: "The flight attendant in my section was very nice. I appreciated the extra snacks she gave me!"
Cons: "The main meal, a sandwich, was only ok. The food could definitely be improved."
Pros: "9 hr flight, well taken care of by attendants and good timing... food, beverage and amenities."
Pros: "The crew was the best!"
Cons: "No non meat or not red meat option on food. Very sad. If I wanted a veg sandwich Ihad to pay for it."

Cons: "Free movies and entertainment. Better food."
Pros: "The crew was good."
Cons: "Crying baby....ughh."
Pros: "Everything was great."
Pros: "I like that you could watch TV, movies, or listen to music."
Cons: "When we arrived to SFO the flight was delayed for mechanical issues. When they couldn't fix the plane they had to fly another one from the Island to get us. This resulted in over a 14 hour delay and ruining our plans for our first day. The wing in SFO was all under construction so if you wanted to get anything you had to leave security and go back through it over and over."
Cons: "My surfboard bag was ripped and all straps were broken and was then patched up with duct tape!!! What the F#€*?!! It looked like it fell off the plane and was run over. Plus my bike box was torn to bits and patched with duct tape and was cut open by someone’s knife, I ended up loosing bike parts because of this. Horrible bag handling by the crew!! This was all noticed when I picked up my bags in Auckland"
Pros: "I drink a lot of water and more so on flights. They weren’t apprehensive about serving me more than one glass of water/drinks (a problem i have had with other airlines)"
Cons: "The food was lack-luster and there werent any options (aside from the specialty diets that you can request ahead of time). They also did not provide any blankets or pillows during the flight and the AC was running the entire time."
Cons: "Most airlines offer free entertainment on long distance domestic flights as long as you bring your own headphones. This is a 5-hour flight. Why would Hawaiian Airline want to charge $7.99 for viewing a movie?"
Cons: "Seats selected at booking were reassigned to back of the plane.We were traveling with another couple, their reassigned seats were not near us. Very disappointing"
Pros: "One of the worse flight experiences, if not the worst. The crew was indifferent and disrespectful to our dietary restrictions on a 5 HOUR FLIGHT! It’s worth noting that when I say “our”, I also refer to my visibly pregnant wife. We asked one crew member for water (WATER!) and were told they ran out. Moments later, the same crew member was passing out water bottles to other passengers. There’s much more to say about our flight, but if theses two instances don’t prompt a change, then the rest won’t matter anyway."
Cons: "Did not like anything about this flight!"
Pros: "The entertainment was good"
Cons: "The food was terrible and my seat didn't recline which made for a very uncomfortable long trip"
Pros: "The extra touches that used to be normal and then every airline took away, like meals! Complimentary cocktail was a bonus too."
Pros: "Nice crew, comfortable seat, good temperature."
Cons: "Appreciated the complimentary sandwich but since I am vegetarian had to pull the meat out and basically eat a cheese sandwich. Poor selection of "free" movies - just ended up reading."
Cons: "When I checked in i asked the agent to help me board early since I was carrying a fragile musical instrument. She said check back later. I had no seat assigned and was told I would be seated after all families were taken care of. I waited and waited and finally when everyone was boarded, I checked one last time because I was the only person left in the waiting area and the gate agent totally forgot about me. So she assigned me to a seat that had a wall in front of it and no storage space in the seat in front of me. I was livid. Thankfully I didn’t have to check the instrument but the hassle was a nightmare I really wanted to avoid."
Pros: "After a turbulent flight, we made it to Maui!"
Cons: "The plane was freezing so I asked if there were any spare blankets. I was told they were $10. The crew also didn't do a safety demonstration at the beginning, which made the 30 minutes of rough turbulence all the more nerve-racking."
Pros: "The flight crew was very friendly. The complimentary beverage and snack service were outstanding. They kept on coming up and down the aisles with water bottles to refill water. It was the easiest flight to stay hydrated on that I have ever been on."
Pros: "Our flights were delayed in both directions!"
Cons: "The long delays. Also we were seated st the very end of the plane and were not able to change seats."
Pros: "Very kind staff, hot food!"
Cons: "No free movies"
Pros: "I am so happy you sent a survey! I have been wanting to sen a compliment to the women that was at the gate counter the day of my flight 11/30/17 flt 41. I watched her handle multiple difficult situations. In a severely stressful moment insane her handle with such grace and professionalism. She deserves a personal pat on the back and a raise:)"
Cons: "Customer service"
Pros: "Really friendly attendants"
Cons: "No vegetarian option for the second meal for my girlfriend. It was just sandwiches, how hard is it to have a meatless option? For the first meal she simply ate around the chicken as no mention was made of a veg option, and the flight crew was so brusque and in a hurry it wasn’t possible to flag them down and inquire."
Pros: "Let me think, food was free. Some of the staff was friendly. Glad was the flight was quick, because I don't think I could deal with that staff anymore than the few interactions I had with them."
Cons: "Lets start with the boarding process. Its not organized and just a huge mess. This zone boarding thing is very old school and no where is there a screen saying which zone is boarding, you have to listen for the quiet announcement and hope you heard it correctly, because they only say it once. When on board, the staff I dealt with was having a bad day or something, because slamming drinks down on tray tables and cups in to a half full cup must be the norm. The passenger next to me mentioned that the staff was very rude to me, as I was pretty passive at the time. The seats are somewhat comfortable, but when the staff tells you not to lean back because the lady behind you doesn't have enough leg room, then whats the point of paying for comfort plus. The food may be free, but if you want some sort of entertainment, TV shows or movies, it isn't free. Everything must be paid for on this flight. You pay a pretty penny to get on these flights only for them to up-sell you on everything! This airline needs some major changes to staff and technology."
Pros: "Good price, food and drink free, cocktail prior to landing in Oahu, accommodate to have two seats together"
Cons: "Didn't know seat assignment ahead of time, in flight entertainment needed to be paid for"
Pros: "Everything else was great. Customer Service was amazing. Food was just good. Nothing fancy. Nice to have snacks also. Thank you"
Cons: "The delay was long-although because of traffic that morning I was late also, but we were 1hr 45 minutes late leaving."
Pros: "positive, friendly staff"
Cons: "lack of ability to select seats from mainland to hawaii on both flights."
Cons: "I can't tell you how disappointed I was to learn upon arrival in New Zealand, with no forewarning or preparation, that I was to be BUG SPRAYED before being allowed to leave the airplane. I have asthma. Being sprayed with chemicals is a serious health concern for anyone, but especially for those of us with asthma. They sprayed a cloud of chemicals directly over our heads and we sat helpless as the spray settled onto our clothes and skin and into our mouth and lungs. I had a asthma attack, and when I told the stewardess she looked at me and said "It won't be much longer." It was another 15 minutes. I was so unwell that I asked my husband if he would be able to carry me if I passed out. I also unfortunately forgot my ebook reader in the seat due to my attack. When I wrote customer service I received only "We will forward your message" and no response beyond that regarding the return of my device. This entire experience has caused me great distress and I am sincerely hopeful that as a corporation you will take steps to ensure the welfare of your customers by ensuring they are aware of all treatments to expect when on board your aircraft. Had I known, I could have brought a mask and saved my serious asthma attack. I probably would not also be without my ebook reader."
Pros: "There was a female pilot"
Cons: "Staff was not friendly. Too many announcements. Food inedible."
Cons: "The long wait to get through the TSA line as I was in a wheelchair. It took over 15 minutes to get a female attendate."
Cons: "Too crowded, lousy food"
Pros: "The cleanliness. No chaos."
Pros: "The flight crew are friendly and helpful. Got to our destination on time, free hot meal and glass of wine was much appreciated!"
Cons: "I flew with Hawaiian 6mos prior and I had nothing but rave reviews. I should have figured free entertainment was a thing of the past, now you also have to pay additional for a blanket."
Pros: "We didn't have assigned seats for some reason. At the gate, the agent placed is in extra comfort seats at no extra charge. Nice!"
Cons: "Child kicking my chair and punching the touchscreen behind my chair throughout the flight. Parents didn't do anything but act like they didn't see how annoyed I was when I glanced at them more than once."

Pros: "I like the customer service on the plane. They were pleasant. The plane was clean the planes was pretty empty. It was comfortable."
Cons: "I didn't like the people who was at the San Fran airport who checked us in. I have a sister who Is handicap and I needed assistance and they had no Mercy. Honolulu gave us much better service Then San Francisco. The people in Honolulu helped us from the time we exited our car till we got on the plane."
Pros: "Very nice helpful people at Hawaiin airlines"
Cons: "There was a little delay due to my flight being over sold, but Hawaiin airlines as quick to react by switching to a bigger plane. We took off late but still ended up landing on time. wow!"
Cons: "The original 9/23 9:05 am flight from SF to Honolulu was cancelled. The airline staff did not say a word why the flight was cancelled, but they were kindly enough to put me on a United Airline flight at 1:15pm on the same day. But the UA flight got delayed and delayed, I didn't get on the airplane until 5pm on 9/23. This was such a terrible experience, I wasted 9 hours at the airport and had to cancel so many activities I have planned on 9/23."
Pros: "Excellent service, the food was perfect, they gave us a Ron Hawaiian, it was so yummy...and they gave us a good impression from the island."
Pros: "I upgraded my seat while checking in and was satisfied with the amount of leg room I had."

Cons: "IFE not working properly"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Airbus seats were comfy. Air hostesses were nice, but I didn't get anything because I was sleeping the whole flight."
Cons: "Did not like the girl at the check in counter. No smiles at all, not a good representation of aloha Hawaiian spirit. She looked like she hates her job. She couldn't assign me a seat right there and she told me she'll call me up to boarding counter. She also promised to get me an aisle seat on my next flight but she gave me window instead."
Pros: "It was on time."
Cons: "The extra leg room seats I purchased where not as advertised. There was an entire row on front of the that was not pictured on the web diagram."
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable. Food taste is ok. One of our checked bags was not loaded."
Pros: "I was unable to board the flight so there is nothing to talk about."
Cons: "Provide options for accommodation, refund or alternate flights after announcing a 24-hour delay. I had to repurchase my flight from HKG to SFO after finding out that a return ticket is treated as abandoned if one does not fly one way. Not the level of service expected from an international airline."
Pros: "Crew were very hospitable and helpful."
Cons: "More leg room on long international flights."
Cons: "Catering and professionalism of the crew could have been better."
Pros: "Crew was courteous."
Cons: "Seat needs to be much roomier. Entertainment and Food should be good and more options."
Cons: "The food service could have been better . Quality is poor ! There was one lunch service, breakfast service and one snack service through 19.5 hours of nonstop flight. We were hungry through out as the quantities were so little and barely there . The toilets were bad and didn’t even carry tissues"

Pros: "Air hostesses service"
Cons: "Food quality"
Pros: "Overall good experience"
Cons: "Food can be improved a lot"
Pros: "Pleased that the flight departed on time and arrived 50 minutes early. Sad that waiting for my luggage frittered away the time we gained by arriving early."
Cons: "Having your bags tagged as “priority “ really doesn’t mean anything. Watched nearly two flights’ luggage go by on the carousel before mine came out. This is becoming the norm over the past several months for most airlines and airports. I don’t mind waiting for my bags. I do mind waiting with a false expectation of priority service."
Pros: "A perfect landing/touchdown into Auckland. Great pilot"
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: "Food for economy was great. Entertainment system great."

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: "Indian vegetarian meal was not great"
Pros: "All went to schedule and flight attendants very good"
Cons: "There was no toiletries and slippers. Snacks should be given timely. It should not ask for it."

Pros: "The flight staff was very curteous and helpful, that made a difference with the trip."

Pros: "Great staff and food"
Cons: "Flight arrived from SFO 15 min late, and airline cancelled numerous connecting flights to various cities, including mine to Hanoi from Hong Kong. Offered to rebook 10hr later with 40 HK food credit. Happened to my uncle and cousins 1 month earlier on exact same legs. Would not recommend any layover with this airline in hong Kong for less than an hour. Numerous phone calls from me to sort this out, which resulted on another carrier to Hanoi."
Pros: "Brand new A350-900 airplane. Better movie selection. Nicer bathrooms."
Cons: "No more advanced seat selection except for an additional $180. No more serving wine and beer with dinner although I think its still available on request. A lot more screaming kids on the flight. Cathay is becoming more like the budget Chinese airlines. Sad."

Pros: "Most of the stuff was regular flights"

Pros: "I wasn’t"
Cons: "I didn’t like the fact I had a different gate on my boarding pass. We were waiting at terminal 2 for 5 hours thingking that’s where our gate was. One hour before our boarding I come to find out that our gate was in a whole other terminal, we almost missed our flight. We would have missed it if I didnt as the ticket counter when is the Seattle flight going to go up on the screen. Poor communication on Alaska airlines part. Not very happy with that I had to rush to the other terminal because I had the wrong information on my boarding pass."

Pros: "Crew behaviour"
Cons: "Food was bad..more snacks needed...movie list was not updated ...should be more Bollywood movie"
Pros: "- Crew friendly and helpful"

Pros: "Hospitality was good. PRO was excellent."
Cons: "Jain Vegetarian Food was not satisfactory. It requires improvement."
Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "The seats are not comfortable. My head kept rolling forward when sleeping because there was not enough recline. Couldn't sleep my entire 14 hour flight."
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."
Cons: "Surprised (and first time on Cathay I've seen this) toilet was revolting towards end of flight. Movie selection disappointing, as not many new releases and not all that many others."
Pros: "Excellent crew service, comfortable seats."
Cons: "A little difficult to understand the announcement in English."
Cons: "Child in seat behind hitting screen in back of headrest (play a game on it) while I was trying to sleep in the middle of the night"
Pros: "The crew and staff were generally friendly and the food was fine."
Cons: "For the first time in thirteen years traveling with my guitar, I was forced to check in my guitar, potentially in violation of the US Department of Transportation's rule on musical instruments. While my guitar thankfully arrived in good condition, this caused an unnecessary amount of stress in my 24 total hours of travel. I'd highly advise Cathay Pacific to revise their inflexible stance towards musical instruments, as many passengers brought carry-on bags which were much larger than my guitar in its case."
Pros: "Everything- I had 3 seats to relax and sleep. The food was excellent for the vegetarian option."
Pros: "The hard product of seats and plane was really nice. Flying the new A359, very comfortable. Lower cabin pressure felt really nice on the skin. Lie flat beds were a treat, and a massive entertainment system."
Cons: "The food was average. Had some chicken on pasta on the way over, chicken was dry and without sauce. My wife fainted on the flight and the flight attendant wasn't the most reassuring. Also her foot rest broke and they blamed her weight which was mean."
