A very nice Japanese breakfast. - smaller plane, bus that picked us up and dropped us off in front of the airport. As we were doing a 12 hour layover, all our check in luggage was taken care of and sent to van"
Cons: "At our first checkin from Korea Ana, seems we have to look at a screen for our luggage just to double check that they made it past customs (never had to do that before) - check in was a bit longer compare to yvr their scanner was much smaller so definitely can’t have big carry on"
Cons: "Narita to Honolulu sector has not enough food for breakfast noting Honolulu airport has got nothing to offer!!!"

Pros: "ANA is always efficient and polite."
Cons: "Just drinks no snacks on this flight"

Pros: "Typical ANA quality. Bumpy flight but handled very well."

Flight attendants were exceptionally efficient, professional, courteous, and outstanding ambassadors for ANA and Japan itself. In the US Marine Corps we would say "Ooo Rah". I may heed to check out your milage club and stop using various carriers for my trans Pacific flights. Thank you very much ANA."

Pros: "As a frequent flyer, I have found out that the few dollars i spend more on SQ is well worth it"
Pros: "Staff are great and on board service was good. Boarding is always well organised from Changi however it was a full flight and as always half the passengers exceeded their carry on allowance. Rather than addressing this bags were flung everywhere no nowhere within your actual reach during the flight. Very annoying when you are a passenger who does the right thing."
Cons: "See above. No in flight entertainment makes you feel like you're flying with the low cost carrier rather than a full service airline."
Pros: "Seats are big as old plane"
Cons: "Very old plane, entertainment system therefore very old too. Service was slow, 2 hours after start till they serve dinner, another 1 hour to clear. No special boarding for staralliance gold members"

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.

Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew. Efficient service and good boarding. Seemingly wider seats than the newer A350s."
Cons: "Positively ancient entertainment system with poor selection and bad visual quality. Ads pop up every time you go into another menu. If you're flying SIN->BNE I'd avoid the 7.20am departure, you'll get the old 777-200s rather than the A350s they run on other departures."
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "The food for Premium Economy was very poor. The choices were substandard and the food at some meals was inedible. Very disappointing for the price of the tickets. The cabins and equipment seemed old and jaded."
Pros: "The economy section of the upper deck of the A380 is great!"
Pros: "I will only use Singapore Air for anywhere they fly. They really care about their passangers, 2 checked bags 1 carryon no charge, no airline does that. They constantly feed u & alcoholic beverages all at no extra charge. Flight attendants always have a smile on their flight. In flight entertainment was great, touch screen and remote controller. They supply earbuds, socks, toothbrush and paste."

Pros: "The ability to pre-order food helped bud to intolerance of good types. Crew were helpful in getting us off the place first because they knew were were short on time for our connection."

Cons: "The food was just ok, but not really expecting a 5 star cuisine."

Cons: "Economy seats aren't so great on any carrier."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, good entertainment options"
Pros: "The flight was delayed (both ways) and after not having flown Thai Airways for many years, I would have thought the meaning of "TG = Tomorrow Go" has been improved to "Today Go" The boarding process literally remains back in the "stone age" compared to the total modern aviation advancements!!"
Cons: "The boarding process could and must be improved!! What's the point of having modern technology like self-automated boarding machines installed at the airport and not using them? People should be boarded by zoning instead of letting people acted like this is the last flight out of Saigon!!"
Pros: "new plan and equipments are good"

Cons: "Overall great experience."

Pros: "Professional staff and good food"
Cons: "Landing was a little bumpy"
Pros: "Food & services on the plane were great."

Cons: "The food choice was limited - and it was spicy which didn't suit me or the children. The flight was a little bumpy."
Pros: "The in-flight service is better than others."
Cons: "The check-in process at Heathrow is a chaos. I’m not sure who’s responsible, between the Airlines or the Airport. It sholuld arrange separate rows between those already check-in online and the others. I also saw the officials let some (1-5) group of (3-8) people each bypass the long queue, without reasons. The seat and leg space are so narrow that the direct 10+hour- flight is not so comfortable."
Cons: "Very hard seats for a long haul flight and queues for the the toilets. Overall the planes looked old and tired."
Pros: "Bangkok Melbourne leg was excellent. New plane. Was great. Great, friendly service."
Cons: "Same limited entertainment options and despite being a new plane would 3 degrees on the tilt of the seats kill you?"
Cons: "3 toilets out of order. Plane very old. Chilli food so hot inedible."
Cons: "Old plane not flat bed and food bad"
Cons: "The plane was a very old B777-300 and the air conditioning did not work so the whole flight was very warm. The cabin in general was very dated and cramped. Having flown the A350 to Bangkok which was newer and much better, did not see why they couldn’t operate the flight back on the same platform"

Pros: "ARN to BKK: Good crew, good seat (Thai Premium Economy - available Scandinavian flights only), on time departure and early arrival BKK."

Pros: "Quick & efficient boarding but cost cutting has taken the shine off what used to be a quality airline experience."
Cons: "I’m not fussy about food, but the menu today was about as uninspiring as they come. Along with polite but perfunctory service and a seat that is nothing better than premium economy, I don’t know how they can get away with calling their business class product, Business Class!"
Pros: "It was fine"
Cons: "We arrived plenty early at terminal 2 like the confirmation said. Only to find that over night they changed departures to terminal 3. No signs. No one there to give instructions. Just a security guy saying “take sky train “. We had plenty of time so it was more annoying than anything. So we arrive at the gate and the are having a party to inaugurate the new gate and terminal. I’m glad they celebrated. Haha. Got to laugh. The big crowd at the celebration were passengers who were delayed bordering so they could have a celebration. Part of the adventure."
Pros: "Service, client treatment, food"
Pros: "Food and beverage"
Cons: "We requested wheelchair assistance for my grandmother (3 days before the flight), but at the departing airport, the person with the wheelchair left early and we had to walk her on to the plane. When we arrived at Hong Kong, there was no wheelchair on the bridge, and after disembarking and being told to wait, it took 30 minutes for them to bring one. The ground staff kept trying to convince us to just walk which seemed very unprofessional."
Pros: "The crew was good, not much as it was a red eye, but they were friendly and helpful"
Pros: "The crew went above and beyond the meet my needs. I requested the Cathay draft beer Betsy which wasn't loaded, unfortunately, but the crew managed to find one in economy."

Cons: "Extremely bad service at the ticket counter. Really disappointed, really disappointed"
Cons: "Chose emergency exit on Cathay 777-300. Terrible.. was squished like a sardine! And I was in window seat... was not even able to eat! Worst economy class I have been in years!!! Never again...."
Cons: "The crew should be more kind."
Pros: "Crew amazing."
Cons: "Food variety should be increased."
Cons: "The flight attendant actually worked very hard. But I don’t think they have enough people working in the economy. I asked for a cup of coffee twice from 2 different flight attendant. Never got it"
Pros: "Could not take flight and could not get refunded"
Cons: "Refund money"
Pros: "The crew were busy but very attentive"
Cons: "I could not plug in my headphones because of the proprietary plug on the airplane. I understand some airlines used to use proprietary plugs to keep people from taking their headphones that were offered complementary for the flight but I’d rather use my high end noise canceling headphones."
Pros: "seat very comfortable"
Cons: "food and inflight entertaitment with very few choices are very poor - flight attendant always on the PA for meaningless message in 3 languages"

Pros: "very friendly staff"
Cons: "seats could be more comfortable for long flights, better food choice"
Cons: "Slow and old entertainment system. Bad seats"
Cons: "A very old product in the CX fleet. The old exonomy seat is terrible. Service was not attentive. Entertainment system was not responsive. CX is definitely going downhill."
Pros: "On time food"
Cons: "New menu is not appealing with lesser choice and smaller portions - inflight entertainment very limited choice - constantly disturb with meaninglessness pa announcement"
Pros: "Second time in less than two years and satisfied on both trips. Good work Cathay Pacific."
Pros: "Excellent ..."
Cons: "We were served only breakfast and lunch ... in 16 hour travel with a cup of noodles if you asked, the stewardess needed to get reminders couple of times. The steward serving food was excellent. No coffee nor drinks were offered after meals. Food was good though."
Cons: "The seat was a bit small for me, legroom a bit tight."
Pros: "A perfect landing/touchdown into Auckland. Great pilot"

Pros: "Boarding was swift"
Cons: "Crew was indifferent and cold in their service. Food was mediocre."
Pros: "Service was fantastic. Had a bit of a headache and the air hostess was quick to get me a Panadol. Entertainment system is good. Do check out the outside camera that works when landing gear comes out. Great view. Great idea."

Pros: "Modern flight and silent Large monitor"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats Degraded quality of food and drinks"
Cons: "The stopover in Hong Kong was longer than I would have liked."
Pros: "It was a lovely flight. Food/drinks were excellent."
Cons: "Toilet cleanliness needs to be better."
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."
Pros: "Every aspect was smooth and efficient."
Pros: "their korean movies"
Cons: "they have worst coordination between airline crew and airport personnel who is in charge with services taking care for the handicap they forgot to board my aunt so i had to help my aunt board then the crew informed me i am not allowed to bring her in the plane and leave the wheelchair in the tube i had to bring her in the plane since my aunt was anxious other people in wheelchair was already brought in and she was left behind"
Pros: "Boeing 777 had an upgrade on the video display software, making for a more manageable video experience. It's easier to navigate because of the ability to close screens and go back to the screen you were on, rather than having to start over each time."
Cons: "I received a polite e-mail and a text message an hour or two later indicating that my flight from Taipei to HongKong had been delayed. It took a login to the Cathay Pacific web site to figure out that with the rescheduled time, I would miss my connecting flight from HongKong to Boston if I didn't change anything. I managed to sort it out, though it took using my cell phone to place an international call to the HongKong Cathay Pacific office to get me on an earlier flight. I don't think this is an acceptable level of service -- had I not had WiFi access or an international capable cell phone, I would have been stranded in Taipei or HongKong an extra day. I think CP could have done more to notify and help remediate the situation knowing the implication of the rescheduled flight. Food also remains mediocre, though slightly better."
Cons: "The seats seemed like they had no padding and it kept stabbing me in the back. Seat belts were so thick and hard i couldn't lean in any direction to get comfortable as it would stab me. My partner and I were also seated separately. Painful flight, disappointed."
Pros: "Little more leg room!"
Pros: "All went to schedule and flight attendants very good"
Pros: "The service from start to finish was superb. The flight to Hong Kong had the on board attendants at full service the whole journey. Blankets and pillows were supplied as standard and plenty of complimentary food. There was a genuine sense that the on board attendants wanted you to be as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "I can't think of anything really. Perhaps the seats could have slightly more leg room but hey. What can you expect from economy."
Pros: "Up and down at the right time and place. Great experience."
Pros: "I am frequent air traveler that logs about 100k miles a year and this is the first time I felt like writing a review about an airline. I traveled with my 4 year old son on this trip. Excellent service, high quality food options and flight amenities. I really enjoyed the food as did my son. My son left his backpack behind on the first leg and the airline staff retreived it and delivered it to the lounge in less than 15 minutes. I was astounded and had almost given up on seeing the bag again, given my experience with other airlines in the past. This is going to be airline of choice for future trips!"
Cons: "Continues to be incinsistent and spotty service."
Pros: "Great service and smiley staff"
Cons: "the fact that it's a 14 hour flight, i hope someone invents a faster plane soon."
Pros: "We always fly with Cathay. Usually 2-3 times per year and feel the staff are professional and service is extremely good. I recently fractured my ankle and staff provided excellent assistance."
Cons: "The breakfasts for economy passengers is shocking. This has not always been the case. However, Now it is presented in a card board box and of very poor quality."
Pros: "I was put on an earlier flight as they had a window seat available. Leg room was good, and the food and movie offer was better than last time."
Pros: "Always consistently good.."
Pros: "Crew and beverage options were great."
Cons: "Seats could have been more comfortable. And slightly more leg room would have been preferred for a 14hr flight."

Pros: "Very comfortable flight. The full range of entertainment made the time go quickly. Professional crew."
Cons: "I know it's an airplane, but even so, the food was astonishingly bad."
Cons: "We booked vegan meals which came and were pretty good. But afterwards, the cabin crew handed out icecreams and then Fantales and had no vegan options for those treats."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and professional. The aircraft was clean and well maintained. Food and entertainment were great."
Cons: "Completely satisfied."
Cons: "Crew was not friendly. Also - who thought putting call buttons in the armrest was a good idea? We had 10 accidental calls from the people around us alone."
Pros: "Very friendly crew, and super comfy flat bed in business class."
Cons: "On this occasion, Qantas delivered the goods!"
Cons: "Entertainment system was playing up and crew had to reboot it several times"

Cons: "The sandwich for lunch was boring and the bread was not very nice."
Pros: "Good movies make for a quick trip"
Pros: "Crew a was good - Seat was not so great. I tried to book my seat/boarding pass when you sent through the notice to do so in the morning but at that stage there was only 1 seat available to sit in?? Seamed a little odd to be completely booked out at that stage"

Pros: "The friendly crew, space for my legs and the food."
Cons: "The entertainment gadget was faulty."
Cons: "Baby stroller was sent to baggage claim. I had to walk with small baby and a bunch of bags through all steps instead of using the stroller."
Pros: "Everything was barely adequate. All the flights on this trip was substandard. Planes seemed old and dirty. Really disappointed."
Cons: "Barely made the connection."
Pros: "Good seats and leg room in economy. Crew and service were friendly and enjoyable."
Cons: "Information from Qantas on the last minute delay to the flight and ongoing changes to the timing, was poor. We got most of our information on the delay and timing was largely from other sources."
Pros: "All inside the realm of the expected"
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable"
Pros: "Healthy airline food option, friendly helpful service, use of name and I'm on the bottom rung of ff status??"
Pros: "everything was lovely"
Cons: "the outdated on flight entertainment system"

Pros: "Friendly efficient service. Lots of smiles. Food was great. Very comfortable seating"
Cons: "Toilet was very cramped USB charging plug not working. Pretty average range of movies."
Pros: "It was my first A380 flight, and overall I was disappointed relative to the Dreamliner. Yet it stands out as a positive the way that Qantas has configured business class on the upper deck. It's quite peaceful. The staff was pleasant, but could have been more attentive. It felt like some cared and others did not."
Cons: "I have flown millions of miles with Qantas, but it's been more than 10 years since my last flights. My expectations were high and i the end I only felt "OK" about the experience. The seats are not competitive with other business classes in the sky. I realize that is about to change. I flew Air Canada into Australia, and while my seat was unfortunately broken, the capabilities and overall comfort of their seats is far superior to Qantas. The business class lounge in Sydney had very poor food options in my opinion, and I was quite peckish after having skipped lunch to travel to the airport for a 4pm flight. The food options on the flight were much better, though overall options / taste were just OK."
Pros: "Qantas is always a great choice. Good food and service."
Pros: "Upon confirming my flight I had received a middle seat. When I got to Sydney I was able to talk a host at the gate to see if she can move to an aisle seat. She did and it was at the front of the row with plenty of leg room. I couldn’t have asked for a better flight home."
Cons: "The mess other passengers made. Have some respect for yourself and the stewardess. I could only imagine the home some of these people Live in."
Cons: "Flight was nearly an hour late leaving."
Cons: "Flight was late departing."
Cons: "Lack of food for dinner..they ran out."
Pros: "Mostly everything great."
Cons: "Leg room for me a bit small. Dinner a bit mushy."
Pros: "I don't remember much about this plane. It was nice to get food service for such a short flight. I believe we had the two seats to ourselves, and they were comfortable."
Pros: "Everything was great - arrived early. Excellent service."
Pros: "Wonderful staff, the flight felt quick and easy."
Cons: "The food, there was no vegetarian option."
Pros: "Efficient loading & unloading. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Seats were way too close together!!"
Pros: "The crew was always courteous, helpful, and patient with everyone. They just seemed to have much better attitudes than I’ve seen with other airlines, at least this crew did. Even the food was good!"
Pros: "Fine, but completely unmemorable."
Pros: "Delay on LAX to bNE was too late for us to make the connection. And our bags were lost as a result."
Pros: "Boarding from an obscure gate, then being bused quite a long way to the plane was slow and tedious. There were many queues and delays along the way and the plane was late leaving. Food was not great but we we were not offered anything to drink not even water with the meal until we had finished eating. I know crew works hard but that seemed a time management problem. There is no service involved plonking down a tray. Water could be included."
Cons: "All of the above."
Pros: "Had problems with check in because of china eastern mishandling our baggage, the Quantas staff got everything sorted for us. Plenty of leg room on the flight and the cabin staff were fantastic, only thing that let it down was the food choice, but, as it was only a 3 hour flight this wasn;t really a problem. Would gladly fly with them again any time."
Cons: "Seats very cramped with 6 children sharing seats invarea"
Pros: "Really nice hostesses. Professional, friendly, interested in travellers. Very welcome when you're travelling home after a long day."
Cons: "Planes are looking a bit tired."
Pros: "Comfy flight. The staff were really helpful."
Pros: "Actually had wonderful vegan food for us. Express lane through customs/security. Separate biz check-in that actually worked. Good entertainment. Qantas Biz Lounge about the best lounge I've been in - just wonderful."
Cons: "Cant think of a thing."
Pros: "Staff were friendly. Enjoyed getting a meal included in the ticket for everyone."
Cons: "Could be more of a range of movies to watch"
Pros: "Staff service was excellent."
Cons: "Paid for Qantas but got Latam. Not at all the same quality of flight material. Heat hearing strange clicks that I have never experienced on other flights."
Pros: "Mobile checkin, e-boarding pass, straight to the gate!"
Pros: "Attentive staff with great food. Only issue is seats in economy are a bit cramped."
Cons: "Seats a bit cramped in economy."
Cons: "Checking process could use some improvement; LAX check-in counter staff was NOT customer oriented; got the feeling that either they hate the job and had a bad day?"
