Pros: "Very comfortable; excellent service"
Cons: "Food"

Cons: "I recommend if they can provide paid massage service ( not complementary)at the suits class for long trip because there’s enough space to do it , I’m very glad to congratulate them for the level of service they reached ."

Pros: "Same as above on SIN-BKK"
Cons: "Next time in B787 Dreamliner"

Pros: "Always love the SIA business product on long haul."
Cons: "This trip had a lot of minor service and cleanliness misses. But they are quibbles in the scheme of the overall great product."

Pros: "All crew members are very friendly and helpful, good service."
Cons: "All over flight i feel good time, i don't feel boring all friendly staff, good service choice of food i like."

Pros: "I like all"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Okay in general, nothing impressive"
Cons: "Food certainly need improvement, lacking in attention to ensure food quality. Crews need proper training in customer service."

Pros: "Everything from booking, online check-in, self printing of Boarding Pass, BIz Class lounge, Flight. Flight too short (KL to SG) for me to eat and enjoy the inflight entertainment."

Cons: "without any possibility to call back. or to call again while being late, when arrived with plenty of time before departure. nobody was on the gate. when tryed to do all myself whithin minutes tsa didnt bother to speedup process and it took forever. i missed my flight literally in seconds."

Pros: "I like everything crew, etc"
Cons: "Nothing reallly"

Pros: "Seating was spacious, crew was attentive. Boarding was efficient."
Cons: "The food choice was not pleasing to me."

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: "Very comfortable. best airline I flew on overall and was first time ."
Cons: "Charges for extra bag was steep- $150. Location at LAX airport is far. While nice to have many options for meal but did not low-carb so I only ate half my food"

Cons: "1 hour delay of departure"

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: "Movies selection was great."
Cons: "Food and comfort were not as great as I thought they would be. Not bad, but not worthy of the brand Singapore airlines."

Pros: "Flight time"

Pros: "The service was excellent start to finish. I found the movie selection to be excellent on the plane and the food was tasty and above average for airline food, and the seats were comfortable."

Pros: "check in went smoothly. helper was friendly and helpful."

Pros: "Punctual flight with friendly crew."

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 service and attitude from ALL crew! Roomy premier economy!"

Pros: "Ease of check in, very quick."
Cons: "Older plane, entertainment system incredibly slow, plane needs tidying up, starting to look its age."

Pros: "First class service with economy prices via Kayak! Blankets, pillows, full meals, snacks, entertainment, hot towels before take off and landing. The crew is always spot on! I love Singapore airlines!"

Cons: "I Booked a flight that stated that it only had one stop in singapore, then direct to SFO after arriving in singapore i was told that i had to go to a transfer counter, that there was a problem with my ticket. after arriving at the transfer counter they took my boarding pass for my dircet flight to SFO, & told me that i now had a stop in hong kong, that the direct flight to SFO was over booked!! this is not right i wouldn't of booked this flight if they had been truthfull about the extra stop. i will never use singapore airline or kayak again!!!"

Cons: "Seats in economic class are not too contraint in space, food was good and entertainment system quite nice with large si play screen and large movie selection"

Pros: "Loved the hot towel service"
Cons: "Entertainment could be better, however there were a few new and Oscar nominated movies available. Personal air conditioning would be great, I was too hot the entire flight"

Pros: "More movies and TV than you can watch, incredible cabin team, low cost, I mean, what's not to like. American, are you listening?!?"
Cons: "I have to drive from DFW to IAH, I wish Singapore would take over from American and British Air at DFW, honestly Singapore is cheaper, better service, nicer ground and in flight teams. It's worth the extra drive to travel with people that actually care"

Pros: "Priority line for boarding and security, reclining seats, foot stand"
Cons: "Priority boarding not available in India, food and food choices and lackluster service"

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: "I liked there was an opportunity to bid on an upgrade"
Cons: "Our bid was rejected yet there were empty seats in premium economy. Our bid was within the recommended range. You certainly would not have lost money upgrading us."

Pros: "I loved the professionalism of the crew, and how they treat the passengers with such care. I prefer Singapore airlines over any other. Seats are very comfortable. This craft had touch screen monitors that worked well. I was able to use my own ear buds by pulling the jack out part way."
Cons: "I really only have one gripe. I wish there were more movie choices for adults that did not have foul language and immoral scenes."

Pros: "great service"
Cons: "too long"

Pros: "friendly staff top Service top Inflight"
Cons: "old aircraft, no usb or power point charging. choice of 5 movies"

Cons: "My Vegan meal was terrible."

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: "Crew were helpful. Food was good, pillows and blankets in every seat was great. Seats a little small."

Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Kids' meal didn't have fruits. No cellphone charger."

Pros: "Neat & clean flight.good cabin crew members.good service."
Cons: "Food served was not so good. Toilets are very small compared to other flights..speacially SFA - Singapore flight."

Pros: "The wonderfully kind and friendly air hosts and hostesses"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Airline was great"
Cons: "The customer service at Airfair.com is abysmal. I will NEVER do business with them again."

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."

Cons: "don't know of anything"

Pros: "The check-in crew in Chicago was very nice and efficient. The flight crew on-board were not friendly, they were very curt and rushed, and did not go out of their way to be helpful."
Cons: "Friendlier staff during the flight. Better food for breakfast. The connection port for my headphones did not work...I would not have been able to watch movies if I hadn't brought my own single connection head phones."

Pros: "Qatar airlines seat"
Cons: "Bigger lavatory in the plains"

Pros: "Everything was great"

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: "Boarding was very smooth."
Cons: "We were seated in the last row, and by the time the food came around, 2 of the 3 entree options were unavailable. We had to have fish or not get an entree at all."

Pros: "Crew were so good"
Cons: "Everything is good"

Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "Nothing really"

Pros: "Good attention from crew and very comfortable seats."
Cons: "Nothing given the great value for money"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everything was just average to poor."
Cons: "Baggage was not handled properly. Food is just average. Crew looked very tired, they are probably too much overloaded with work and the airline has poor scheduling of shifts for their crews."

Pros: "courteous service and a clean modern airplane"
Cons: "The sound system was inadequate on the TV and the headsets were uncomfortable. The queue at the check-in needs to be better controlled, it was a bit chaotic."

Pros: "Staff, service,"
Cons: "Legroom, seat comfort, very long flight"

Pros: "Very poor Service on a 16 hour flight"

Pros: "There was a flight attendant that this was only her second flight. She was amazing. Really enjoyed the service."

Cons: "Nothing to dislike."

Pros: "Qatar is awesome. Amazing service and great new planes."
Cons: "All good"

Pros: "Everything really.They run the airline very smoothly and professionally from boarding to disembarking."
Cons: "They tempt you with so much food lol although some of the food wasnt too appealing.toilets very clean and seemed to stay that way throughout long 17hr flight.good leg room for a long legged guy like me.felt sorry for lady with two young children.She could have been allocated better seats."

Pros: "I got an aisle seat. Bathrooms were not bad in terms of cleanliness."
Cons: "Service was ok. I was forgotten to be served items that other passengers were given. Seating ended up being kind of cramped as passenger in front was relaxing a bit too much. Entertainment was ok."

Pros: "Good service and smooth flight"
Cons: "One hour delay and no entertainment in the airplane and small plane"

Cons: "It was too cold in the plane."

Pros: "The staff wad nice"
Cons: "I have requested sea food and I was told that no request was made and they do not serve it any more."

Pros: "Qatar airways is the best company"

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."

Pros: "Jain meal was quite uninteresting Flight was too packed Cabin air stale and dry"

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."

Pros: "Punctual,taxied in time,generally food was good, landed twenty before time. There was head wind otherwise it would have landed earlier. Additional toilet may be considered. Thank"
Cons: "Additional toilet may be considered"

Cons: "Food wasn't good"

Pros: "All would have been good if there was no animal inside a 14hr long flight. Dog allowed to use restroom that passengers uses and it was a BIG dog in a controlled environment for a 14 hour long flight. Hugely disappointed with the pet policy of Qatar airways, especially for all the parents traveling with kids."
Cons: "HUGE DOG INSIDE A 14 HR FLIGHT FROM QATAR TO CHICAGO DISAPPOINTED WITH QATAR AIRWAYS PET POLICY"

Pros: "Hospitality and food."
Cons: "Seats are not comfortable."

Cons: "Boarding"

Pros: "On time and 5 star service"

Pros: "A new Dreamliner. Nice! Very good service. Gate personnel were very accommodating. Nice smooth flight. Doha airport was nice and mostly empty. Mediocre selection of restaurants."

Pros: "Exceptional staff, nothing too much trouble. The aircraft is new and all facitlies great. Will fly with Qatar again"

Pros: "Food is really good and you guys also have options for vegetarian people as well."

Pros: "Boarding was very ease and helpful for my family while I was traveling with kids I appreciate that fact that customer service at boarding was reached out to my wife to help and make us feel great thru the process thanks"
Cons: "No comment"

Pros: "Got upgraded to Business Class :-)"
Cons: "Not much of Movies options to watch"

Pros: "Cramped"

Pros: "N/a"
Cons: "N/a"

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."

Cons: "I was Told the flight form Doha back to Houston was over booked so I had to get re-routed through another city. For a $6,600 business class ticket this is very bad form."

Pros: "The best service"
Cons: "Nothing bad to say"

Pros: "Qatar airways 3 hrs short flight was spectacular at all levels"

Pros: "The crew, the food overall experience was excellent. Special thanks to two crew members Mohammad and the other crew she was from India. I got her name unfortunately lost the paper with her name. Her name stars with G or C I think.Thank you for the excellent service."

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "More leg space"

Cons: "Better inflight entertainment"

Pros: "Checking-in was super simple, and speedy. All the staff I had contact with were very polite and professional"

Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "The food and the crew way of speaking to people"

Pros: "I am tall and was very happy with the leg room in economy class. Food was tasty."
Cons: "Nothing really. Was completely satisfied."

Pros: "Service on the plan was excellent. Food was delicious"

Pros: "I had a fast and easy check-in at Denpasar airport. In flight service by cabin crew was very good, as I normally get in the business class at Emirates. Flight left Denpasar on time and arrived in Auckland some 30 mins early, which was nice. Enjoyed a late dinner - the mie goreng ayam was particularly tasty!"
Cons: "In the past on overnight flights Emirates I have received a pyjama set in the Business Class, which made it very comfortable to sleep. But this time this was not given, so I had to sleep in my day-wear, which was a bit uncomformtable."

Pros: "Obviously Biz Class is a great proposition for a flight of this length and once again the experience was a good one. Staff are always friendly and very attentive."
Cons: "We are not big eaters but when you leave at 10am then a lunch and breakfast is a bit of a stretch and even with light snack options we found ourselves hungry. Breakfast was not too flash"

Pros: "The crews"
Cons: "The wifi is bad the food is bad im in business class"

Pros: "All of the above"
Cons: "Nothing that i didn't like"

Pros: "The departure and return flight time, for the price I paid, I felt like I was in more than an economy flight. The meal, the baggage quota, the entertainment. The time flew because by the time the movie had finished, we were starting to descend. I will always look for this flight with Emirates. There is no other flight in comparison, in what you get for your Buck. I believe that other Airlines, ie., Qantas, Virgin Aust, both give you a flight and service, for nearly the same fare but you only get 7kg luggage, no meal just the basic entitlement, tea/coffe/water with a biscuit or something like that and NO ENTERTAINMENT, NO COMPARISON!!!!"

Pros: "Footrest would be good for a long haul flight."

Pros: "Emirates is a great airline with friendly staff and an amazing fleet of aircraft"

Cons: "Slow to board."

Pros: "Really liked the long journey. Was a bit nervous given the 15 hour flight but was pleasantly surprised. Service was good as well."
Cons: "The crew were really young and not very talkative."

Pros: "The plane was spacious and we had really good seats , next to the toilet and wall in front of us. Super, as we were traveling with a toddler and he was able to sit on the floor in front of us and play with his toys. Food came out promptly and was tasty. Loved the goodies for the kids, little blanket and scotch pad."
Cons: "The delay in boarding! It’s hard work when traveling with a toddler."

Pros: "No commutation no help for transit"
Cons: "I am a women no help first time fling with them"

Pros: "The food was good and the service was great. I also had a great seat in the front row."
Cons: "We were delayed by over 2 hours We had no where to park when we landed so we had to wait for buses to take us toche terminal There was no new and exciting movies that excited me"

Pros: "Extremely quiet plane since they placed people in front of the half empty plane. Great plane food and internet access, limited to text but still incredibly useful to text people from the air."

Pros: "Service was wonderful people very kind enjoying them on the flight was quite beautiful soft and nice wish you good luck ."

Cons: "I checked in online, but when I went to drop my bags there was about a 20 min delay. the agent needed to make 2 phone calls and conference with 2 supervisors. All this without letting me know what was going on."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Same comments as above."

Pros: "The entertainment system"
Cons: "Everything else"

Pros: "Entertainment system was good"
Cons: "On an 18 hour flight I was offered 1/3 of a cup of water or liquid about 3-4 times. They even rationed ice cubes. I had to ring the assistance bell any every 1-2 hours in order to stay hydrated the meals Consisted of a reheated TV dinner and 5 plastic wrapped versions of bread or processeed foods (bread sticks, cracked, cheese stick) normal you just overlook this stuff but when it's 18 hour flight you need actual food and water or else you'll risk dehydration."

Pros: "Check-in was efficient and staff were extremely helpful. Flight itself was comfortable, food was actually tasty, and in-flight entertainment was great. Overall an amazing experience compared to US carriers."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit disorganized."

Pros: "I enjoyed my first time flying with Emirates from Australia to New Zealand The checking in was quick, easy and the staff were friendly. The crew were polite, and friendly with excellent customer service. Refreshments and Entertainment were first class. I will be flying Emirates from now on."

Pros: "The staff were wonderful and efficient. The toilets were clean and the food was much better than my first flight with emirates although the portions were small on the main meal with only four spinach ravioli offered in a tomato sauce."
Cons: "Passengers do not fit on to their seats and overflow into the space you are occupying which is so tiny as it is. There is not enough room to even reach down to pick something up if you drop it. Overhead lockers are full. I think planes either need to be redesigned with sleeping compartments (such as the second class compartments the trains have) for overnight flights or seats need to be slightly larger to make up for the fact most people are larger today."

Cons: "AC and sound system from DXB to BH"

Pros: "Comfortable cabin, attentive crew, if somewhat aloof. Food okay, but better than a 2 ounce package of salty pretzel mix for $3! All in all, quite good."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind."

Pros: "love everything about Emirates!"

Cons: "Another meal option was not available when it was my turn."

Cons: "Confusion with wrong menus being handed out - on 2 flights!"

Pros: "Crew were lovely"
Cons: "Extremely overweight passenger next to me. It was awful, her body was in contact with me the entire flight. The most uncomfortable, hot, smelly, awkward flight Ive ever experienced. Its time you charge for 2 seats for people that are the size of 2 people. Not fair to other passengers to have to be so inconvenienced and extremely uncomfortable."

Pros: "Started my Movie on the Ground before takeoff"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and there was absolutely no announcement with everyone lined up at the scheduled departure time. Communication on the delay was non existent. There was one announcement made 10minutes after boarding was suppose to commence to say the boarding will be delayed. No details as to why, approximate time."

Cons: "Flight was 4 hours late with no explanation"

Pros: "Friendly staff"

Cons: "Delays on flights"

Pros: "Can't beat that. Bigger seat, better leg room, comfortable seats."
Cons: "None."

Pros: "Economy seats were slightly better than most, but the configuration of the 2 seats was good 2 of us to have our own area. Food was good and unexpected for a 3 hr flight."

Pros: "crew very helpful"
Cons: "larger meal would be niice"

Pros: "Friendly helpful staff. Loved the leg from Nandi to Auckland."
Cons: "Having to repack our bags when the total among the three of us flying was within limits. And then still having to pay an extra $60 US. when we didn't get it quite right by about 2 ks. However you did let my wife's wheelchair on without payment thanks for that. I am an ex pilot so it is difficult for your staff to try and explain weight ratios, and the dangers of extra weight.. Then being made to take 1 point something kilos into another lighter bag. However the staff were very good about it. not their fault that they find themselves having to talk through something that just doesn't ad up. However we enjoyed the flight, and the help we received transferring from a very late plane to one almost waiting in Fiji. :-)"

Cons: "planes seats dirty chewing gums stuck on seats talking of entertainment not everyone will prefer to watch what is being played there arw children and elderly thats needs to be considered"

Pros: "well refer below"
Cons: "plane seats were dirty had crumbs on it seats had chewing gum stick on it movie how can u expect everyone to watch same movie there are children wlderly no respect to what they like"

Pros: "Superb customer service It was my first time using Fiji Airways along with my children. We usually fly AirNZ or Emirates because they have everything I need. Now we have added a third airline to our list. My kids are also fussy with the airlines we use. But they really enjoyed their flight with Fiji airways."
Cons: "Food was average and I could not put my seat back slightly."

Pros: "My flight to Los Angeles was great comfortable seats and the food was very good"
Cons: "Unfortunately my flight from Los Angeles to Christchurch was cancelled the plane had a mishap on the runway colliding with another plain so was booked on an Air New Zealand flight back to Auckland the following night it was good of Fiji air to put me up in the Crowne Plaza near airport lovely hotel"

Cons: "No information around delayed flight. There were 4 delays.."

Pros: "As above"
Cons: "Breakfast was pretty average"

Pros: "The service and food"
Cons: "Plane seems dated"

Pros: "Fuji was Great"

Pros: "Didn't like anything, meal service was terrible"
Cons: "Never liked anything and will make sure not to take that flight ever again"

Pros: "The crew on Fiji Air is incomparable in friendliness."

Pros: "They had vegetarian options at every in-flight meal. Heaven! Flight staff were all extremely attentive and polite."
Cons: "Seats are cramped (as with most budget travel) and entertainment options were not very good. Movies were mainly very old and games not very interesting."

Pros: "Boarding was chaotic. No microphone, so couldn’t hear rows being called. Passengers were pushing to get onboard. No numbers, rows, etc being used. Nice airport."
Cons: "Boarding"

Pros: "Excellent service, excellent food"
Cons: "Very limited leg room"

Cons: "We were in the last row on the plane for some reason that was not explained....Parts of plane fell on our heads..Not enough room to lower the tray table...Wedged into seat like sardines...Entertainment was the sounds of toilets flushing...We paid a fortune for first half of flight from LAX to Nadi that was excellent...The second leg of trip to Auckland was a HUGE NIGHTMARE that won't be forgotten....Shirley and Ron Richard"

Pros: "Flights were on time. Service was great. I cannot complain about any of my flights on this trip through Fiji Airlines."

Pros: "Crew."
Cons: "Food."

Pros: "The service was very friendly."
Cons: "My knees while sitting upright drive into the seat in front of me. No extra legroom seats available. Please start saving these for people who actually need them. Also, boarding was like cattle hearding, lack of organization caused anxiety ... albeit my wife and I were amused by people without direction."

Pros: "Quick boarding."
Cons: "This was an older plane than the one from Sydney. No seat back unit. IFE was old screens that drop from the overhead. 2nd show was cut off mid stream due to landing. Seat uncomfortable and showing their age. Full flight so very crowded."

Cons: "When I landed in LA after my trip I was sad to find that my suitcase was broken into and item bought were taken."

Pros: "Friendly staff, good food, comfortable ride."

Pros: "Foods"
Cons: "Poor communications between crews and passengers"

Pros: "Check in staff and flight crew."
Cons: "Online booking, telephone reservations and ticket office staff. Booked 2 tickets in my name, couldn't get corrected passenger's name corrected by online or telephone then went to office and after hour wait and several calls to superiors wanted to charge me to correct their system's error!"

Pros: "Everything except food"
Cons: "Food"

Cons: "The gate agent was extremely rude and asked to see our passports. She insisted our carry on be checked in. My son is disabled and requires an isle chair. The gate staff did not allow time for him to get to his seat before letting the rest of the passengers board and the staff assisting him were very upset as were the passengers who were wondering what was taking so long to get to their seats."

Pros: "Was fine could have served more water/juice/soft drinks but overall was good"

Pros: "Great views, fun airport w live music...seeing storm over Auckland"

Pros: "Tried to change seat assignment in Wellington, but no one could help and were not able to do anything in Nadi. Forced to sit in tge middle seats although my husband has a history of blood clots and needs to move during the flight. Very cramped flight. My favorite thing on Fiji airways are the blankets. Big and soft - very luxurious. It was a overnight flight, but I felt there was not enough water offered during the flight. Overall, good value for money."

Pros: "Flight canceled. Fiji airways told us we would be booked on Qantas instead but the flight wouldn't give us time to make the connection. Ended up flying later,, longer and much more uncomfortable than expected. F Had to take separate seats from family and middle seats, had to spend entire day in Sydney which required us to spend money on a visa and money to eat, had additional stress of then arriving too late and needing to rebook rental car and arranged hotel and make sure elederly parents with special needs were ok health wise. An overall disaster. Never ever a worse experience and I am a world traveler to 68 countries on 6 continents. Will be asking Fiji for full refund plus compensation for having to buy visas and spend day in Sydney."

Pros: "Service was excellent."
Cons: "The entertainment consoles for the whole middle section went out and even a reboot could not correct the problem. No one with expertise to troubleshoot the problem."

Pros: "The people"
Cons: "The food"

Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Food was average. Seats don't lay totally flat"

Pros: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "Not enough legroom"

Pros: "I'd seen some poor reviews but found the flight to be just fine. Decent economy seats for such a long flight, good service, food, and entertainment options."

Pros: "Fast boarding."
Cons: "The middle seats should have a height restriction. I'm 6"1" and my knees has indentations from 11 hours in the air pressed up against the seat in front of me. Outdated movies. Bad food. Rude service."

Cons: "Flight delayed and changed multiple times"

Cons: "More food options would have been great. I asked for the everything bun burger but didn’t get it brought to me."

Pros: "I liked the service of the flight attendants and the crew."
Cons: "The wifi partially worked but I was trying to download songs onto my device and the wifi didn’t let me download anything."

Pros: "The crew was excellent; courteous and professional."
Cons: "More room for overhead bags so checking carry-on isn’t necessary"

Pros: "Never made it."
Cons: "I eventually got to San Francisco. I missed my flight to Lihue and had to stay in the airport all night."

Pros: "Good pilots"
Cons: "Service is dismal and run down interior. Rips in seats. Lags way behind Asian or certain European airlines"

Pros: "Easy boarding, easy flight"
Cons: "Food served a little earlier, with beverages first. There was also buzzing in the headset when I was watching a movie."

Cons: "Stop pretending I can take a carry on. I'm boarding last, and guaranteed I'm going to have to check my carry-on."

Cons: "The seats are getting smaller and the leg space is nonexistent."

Pros: "Everyone was nice, and the flight was on time. Checked in with the app and just a carry on, so my day was hassle free."
Cons: "Can't really think of anything. It was a good flight."

Pros: "Flight crew was very nice Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Delayed flight caused missed connection. Auto booked on late flight next day and had to change airlines to get better times. Voucher given for hotel off airport and shuttle never arrived and had to take Uber. Hotel very low quality."

Pros: "Boarding went smoothly and there was overhead space for my big backpack. Attendants were nice."
Cons: "We received drinks twice but never got snacks. A bit of food during a long early morning flight like this would have been very welcome."

Pros: "Awesome Plane and flight"

Pros: "N/"
Cons: "Didn’t make this flight due to prior delay."

Pros: "Cost On time"
Cons: "Seats in the last row."

Pros: "Efficient boarding, early departure. Early arrival"
Cons: "Spotty internet, somewhat limited entertainment."

Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Plane was a little drafty."

Pros: "On Time"
Cons: "Dear United crew, there are definitely a bunch of great people amongst you. Can you please tell your fellow colleagues to start treating passengers as customers ... no need to leave your good spirits at home, just bring it on the plane ... starting with a smile! And yes, in seat power was not working. PS I wonder who decided on the power outlet placement ... 1.5M flying miles on United."

Pros: "Service was terrific."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "on time, got the seat I wanted"
Cons: "steward was somewhat aggressive, but was responsive one on one. Focus on size of carry on baggage was anxiety producing."

Pros: "Plane was a lot cleaner than I’ve been accustomed to. Boarding was great."
Cons: "I want real food on 4 hour flights where there’s only 1 hour between connections. Starving from 4am pacific to 5pm eastern time is not good for my blood glucose levels. Salt and gluten laden over priced snacks are not good enough"

Cons: "No snack"

Cons: "Video stopped working, power plugs didn’t work"

Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "Narrow seat"

Pros: "The plane ride was great really liked the connecting times"

Cons: "Flight was delayed for 3 hours without any explanation. They squeezed 2 flights into one to save their money disregarding the comforting of the passengers."

Pros: "Didnt try entertainment. Everything else perfect but airline food always average at best."

Pros: "Flight attendants were awesome. Understanding and kind."
Cons: "Small seats"

Pros: "Half the flight booked, they let us switch to better seats!"

Pros: "The free in-flight entertainment was great. I appreciate it being free as it makes up for some of the other issues of not being able to sit next to fellow travelers on the low-fare"

Pros: "The boarding procedure, and flight were completely uneventful. Flight attendants were nice. Slept through the snack if there was one offered."
Cons: "Seatback entertainment by directv is getting a little old at this point. I didn't test it but I believe you can watch content on demand on your own device instead but it's hard to keep the seat back screen turned off. Be weary of tight international to domestic connections at IAD. I had an hour and a half between flights and made it to the gate when they had called group 5 for boarding. This is with Global Entry, TSA Pre-check and priority tags on my bags. I'm sure many others without the above were not so lucky."

Pros: "the large Wide body plan"

Pros: "Had no food so don't know. Entertainment system was available, but did not use it."
Cons: "Would have been nice if I could turn it off the entertainment system."

Cons: "Flight delayed"

Pros: "The crew was so friendly and accomodating. What a great experience!!"

Pros: "Food for purchase available is a good idea on long flights"
Cons: "People don't like surprises. Charging extra for seats, charging extra for luggage resulting in jammed overcrowded overhead bin space are not good ideas. United seats are smaller more cramped than your competitors making for an uncomfortable flight. Flight had no in flight entertainment or ability to charge mobile devices"

Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful. They saw I am a large person using a crutch for my foot and upgraded me to business economy with an empty seat next to me. The plane was only about half full, so this was easy for them."
Cons: "The in-flight entertainment had an annoying habit of pausing frequently to buffer the movie. I tried to pause it purposely to gain buffer, but to no avail. Because of this, I was unable to watch the entire film. I chose the length to be well below the flight time, so the lack of closure was annoying. There are not enough chocolate choices in the snack menu."

Pros: "It was good overall"

Pros: "I like that the seats were more comfortable and had at least some padding."
Cons: "The gate had no comfortable seats and looked like a minimalists ' lounge. The gate agent did not actively give any updates to the boarding process."

Pros: "Very helpful wheelchair boarding -- very fendly and professional ticket counter/check-in personnel"
Cons: "Very cramped seating"

Pros: "Staff nice and seat was comfortable."
Cons: "The computers were down in SJC so everyone was waiting in line to check in and drop off luggage. It was a very long and slow process, but staff were friendly and professional even with difficult passengers. The thing that bugged me was they kept telling us not to worry and that the flight would be delayed so that we all could make it. I was the last one on the plane and I know there had to be at least 10 that didn't make it in time. I think the flight was only delayed by like 15min or so. I don't think they should tell people not to worry because the plane will wait for them, when it didn't wait for all. I get it that you want to also please those in the plane already and those waiting at destination so I'm not upset. Just giving feedback."

Pros: "Leg room & comfortable seating. Staff were nice & helpful"
Cons: "They should serve sufficient quantity of snacks in long journey"

Pros: "I am glad that they didn't overbook this flight and decide to beat a customer unconscious and drag their body, bloody and limp, from the airplane. Overall, certainly could have been a worse flight"

Pros: "After I boarded the plane I discovered my seat had been assigned to another passenger as well as myself! A bit unnerving but nicely solved by an upgrade to business class!"

Pros: "The airline offers a pretty good entertainment selection if you have downloaded the app."
Cons: "After sitting on the tarmac for 3 hours waiting on repairs, the idea of purchasing airline food was annoying. I feel something should have been offered to the passengers as a reprieve."

Pros: "Crew professional, a little bag of snacks and one cup of beverage so nothing outstanding, but then again nothing substandard than anyone else does nowadays. This flight arrived and departed right on time, as all of United flights did for me and right near Thanksgiving travel time too."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "All the new amenities on united airlines are great the new seats are much more comfortable and have better leg room"
Cons: "No security for the wifi, I work In Silicon Valley and the soft security could be an issue but then again all the airlines lack passwords."

Pros: "All went smoothly this trip"
Cons: "The ability to standby for earlier flights with no added fee"

Pros: "3 seats for me"
Cons: "Wifi entertainment system not functional"
