Pros: "Good food. Friendly staff efficient airports."

Cons: "For better leg room in business class go for the bulkhead seats"

Cons: "5 crying babies on a red eye. Don’t know if that can be prevented."

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: "I didn’t like the silk air mainly on my itinerary. It was an old flight with cloth on the back of the flights a bit torn. No entertainment in flight for silk air. That was a bad flight."

Pros: "all of SQ"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "The economy section of the upper deck of the A380 is great!"

Pros: "Very attentive and super awesome crew."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Spacious seats. Lovely food. Wonderful crew. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Interior felt dated given all the awards the SQ has received for its planes and service, but everything was functional. Overlooking the interior, flight was superb. Very happy."

Pros: "nothing"

Pros: "wide seats. great service. on time."
Cons: "food was not as good as one would expect."

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"

Cons: "Mediocre food, lousy entertainment system that belongs to the last decade. Singapore Airlines has not been the premium carrier it was a decade ago and is now simply a so-so airline charging exorbitant fares."

Pros: "Excellent service. Good food. Very attentive and responsive flight crew."
Cons: "Space was too tight"

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: "everything is perfect"
Cons: "the food on Silk Air can be better"

Pros: "Staff are very friendly and good ."

Pros: "Delayed flight from Shanghai due to air traffic issues, so I had a 10 minute window to make my connection in Singapore. Ground staff was waiting for me with a small car after I disembarked to drive me to the gate. And I somehow made my connection. Excellent service. Obviously my checked bag didn't make it, but I was told in advance and was kept updated before boarding and immediate after I disembarked at my final destination. When I went to the baggage service counter, they were already ready for me, had filled out my paperwork, and just needed an address to confirm the delivery of my suitcase. I'm super impressed to this attention to detail."

Pros: "The service and fast flight"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Not much turbulence"

Cons: "Long delay with in between flights. No special kits for kids to keep them entertained. Does not even serve drink when order special meal. Leaves the tray for hour before picking up. No transit help in hongkong. I can go on and on."

Cons: "Extremely cramped flight in regular Economy."

Pros: "The plane cabin, the ease of seat selection, friendly helpful cabin crew, quality and choice of food, facilities in the toilets (mouth wash, hand cream, etc), choice of entertainment, early arrival, the price."
Cons: "That I could not afford to travel first class! which must have been marvellous when economy so good."

Pros: "It was a standard flight"
Cons: "did not have my meal preference even though it was on the menu and being offered to others. Screen did not work to watch shows/movies. It was an outdated plane"

Cons: "The entertainment was poor"

Pros: "Overall, the Singapore Airlines team are always professional and friendly. They pay attention to every detail and try to make sure everyone is as comfortable as possible. One of my favorite things about this airline is that snack and juice are readily available throughout the entire flight without bothering the flight attendants, say in the middle of the night. This includes fresh fruit and juice, which in my book is a huge plus. Their bathrooms are always clean and include extra cosmetic amenities."
Cons: "Sometimes I feel like the cuisine is a bit too Asian and spicy. I had the fish curry and paid for it later in the flight in the bathroom, if you know what I mean. Also I was disappointed that I could not continue the same movie on this flight, as my previous flight, despite both flights being Singapore Air and using the KrisWorld entertainment system. I think the movies should be the same on each flight. However, the wide selection was great and I watched something else instead and really enjoyed the music selection."

Pros: "Great seats and leg space in premium economy."
Cons: "We had the staff come to us twice to keep the "noise" down (we were travelling with a 2.5 yrs old). Now we travelled on other legs with Singapore airlines, with the same toddlers and same "noise" levels, but no one came to us to request to keep the noise level down... I am guessing that premium economy has a different (lower) threshold for toddler "noises" !! :)"

Cons: "Very hard seats not many movies to choose from"

Pros: "Awesome crew and food"
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable.."

Pros: "I love your hostesses"

Pros: "yes. great travel and crew"

Pros: "Great service with very friendly crew who pamper you all through the flight. Delicious food served at the time you like. Also, the Q Suite design is very comfortable, private & flexible."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 18 minutes & disembarking was not direct but via bus."

Pros: "Friendly crews. Excellent food. Great service. On time arrival."
Cons: "They could provide hotel for transit passengers with long layovers."

Pros: "The Crew were professional, friendly and comforting. The A380 Business Class is the best way to fly. Smooth journey, very comfortable reclining beds with enough room to within the bed area to move around with adequate space. The Wine list was excellent with a great choice and variety."
Cons: "Nothing to do with the flight...but Qatar could have offered an airport hotel room to their Bus. Class passengers for the 9 hour delay....we did have the Lounge, but a shower, rest and comfort after another previous 5 hour 30 minutes flight from Athens 11.30am Start to 2.00am start from Doa."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "WC size (too small) and location ( way too close to flight staff and food section)"

Pros: "wanted an isle seat because of back issues and was arranged without any hassle."
Cons: "17 hour transit in Doha and no accommodation was provided. Though I booked it from a third party I belive QA is at least responsible for making sure that the vendors let the user know that there will be NO accommodation provided. This information is also not readily accessible when searching online."

Pros: "Great crew and front desk"

Pros: "Just as I thought it could not get any better The service was perfect. The privacy was superb and the comfort allowed me to sleep for a good while."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike."

Pros: "seat space with leg room."

Pros: "The airlines' film library offers plenty of movies to watch."
Cons: "I had an aisle seat. The crew pushed the service carts in the gangway and hit me a couple of times, and I was very much annoyed because I was waken up while asleep."

Pros: "Great service onboard!!"
Cons: "Checkin at Zurich!!!Waited two hours in line to weigh in... Staff was friendly but not enough staff"

Pros: "Aircraft was brand new -- very clean and everything worked well. All flights were on time. Crew was excellent -- very courteous and helpful. Overall -- very 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: "Everything?"
Cons: "Nothing?"

Pros: "Behavior of the crews"
Cons: "Not enough leg room"

Cons: "On time. Reasonably good. Satisfied with everything."

Cons: "Again had to wait for the flight for 8 hrs due to change in flight time with no explanation"

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: "had a whole row to myself and the food was very good"

Pros: "I was already travelling 5000km so I didn't notice anything"
Cons: "Turbulences ... but it's ok."

Pros: "Everything very smooth. Staff delightful and always helpful!"

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: "Philadelphia-Doha was excellent and noticeably better than Doha-Bangkok. ood, service, condition of aircraft were all better in the PHL-Doha leg. I have done the trip a few times now so it is not a fluke. Odd that the Doha food (and I usually get the local dishes) is very so-so. I usually only take a bite or two. Not appetizing. The Doha-BKK staff was less professional as well. The trays of the main meal were left with the passengers so long, we passengers started to bring our own trays to the galley. The plane out of Doha was very tight so passengers in economy have that sardine experience. The cup holders did not work although they would have been useful."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Great food, great help when travelling with baby, affordable price. Entertainment system was a bit annoying with unusable unresponsive touchscreen and unintuitive menu."

Pros: "Excellent service"

Pros: "Much better knee space. Excellent flight, good service..."

Cons: "NADA!"

Pros: "Comfortable wide seats, good service"

Pros: "It was my first time traveling on business class and I had an amazing experience, friendly and helpful crew, they always made sure that I was doing fine and if I needed anything or any help. Healthy options on they food menu and delicious food and beverages. I am looking forward to traveling with Qatar airways again in the future."
Cons: "Would prefer more options on they entertainment menu."

Pros: "Friendliness of the crew"

Pros: "the crew, the comfort, the entertainment."

Pros: "We like to have Comfortable Seat for mother with that she has under baby infant I Called to the customer service Emirates Fly 25 Days before Fly I Explain to the customer Service that on Economy Class should be Good place and seat for mother with baby but they didn’t give us the Good seat that was so Hard to 13 hours with baby in a tight seat Travel"
Cons: "We like for next Fly from Kabul to JFK Emirates give us Comfortable seat for a mother with her baby thanks"

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 food was amazing. The entertainment was amazing The boarding process was very seamless Everything was done on time"
Cons: "Honestly, nothing. I was beyond impressed."

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: "It wasn’t a full flight."
Cons: "The crew were too busy in their own world and attention during service was poor."

Pros: "Travelled Business Class - a great experience."
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: "Good facilities, food and entertaniment. Seat comfort not so good."

Pros: "The service, food and boarding were all excellent. It brought back the joy of flying like what used to know in the 80s."
Cons: "None"

Pros: "The food was good and the service was great. I also had a great seat in the front row."

Pros: "Entertainment offer was great. Live channels, talks, movies, etc..."
Cons: "The service... it was almost a 7 hours flight, the crew brings you your food and that's it. I needed to ask more than three times to get water, again and again, I can't understand this behaviour at all. They treat you extremely bad unless you fly business with them. I felt uncomfortable and didn't like this behaviour at all."

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: "Everything"
Cons: "No"

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: "Great entertainment system. Lots of leg room best airline"
Cons: "Late departure but made up time in flight"

Pros: "The crew were excellent, very helpful and friendly. The most friendly crew I have flown with. Qantas could learn something from Emirates."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The Crew was very inexperienced and had difficult time in managing the passengers. The food also below par!"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

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

Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "Seat was broken, the crew was unresponsive to calls, food was expired/bad. Seating was terribly uncomfortable because it was broken. I couldn't recline and the crew didn't really help. I love Emirates and I always fly Emirates. So this was an exception and very disappointing."

Pros: "Food was ok. Boarding and check in was good too"
Cons: "The crew from kwt to Dubai was so cheap asking if u get a headset we don't hand out one :) funny but cheap..."

Cons: "Boarding was a bit disorganized."

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: "Large room between seats in economy such that I could sit comfortably with my rather long legs"

Pros: "The flight entertainment system and crew were top-notch."
Cons: "The off-loading from the plane after landing in Dubai was as terrible as I have experienced. It took forever to get off the train to the busses, the staff on the ground seemed very confused about who should go to which bus (much to the visible frustration of flight attendants), and once we boarded the bus, it was a half-hour trip to the airport terminal. Half an hour. Standing up, to get from the plane to the airport. We landed an A380 at the Emirates flagship airport on-time for a normally scheduled flight, and it seemed to take everyone by surprise."

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."

Cons: "It dailies and seats not comfortable"

Cons: "Plane was dirty, staff seemed rushed and inexperienced, soaps empty in bathroom"

Pros: "love everything about Emirates!"

Pros: "Staff were great. Food was good."

Pros: "Air hostesses are polite, smile, respectful. Seats are wide and have space for legs (economic class, 170 cm height). Food are delicious, hot, taste for Asian persons like me and my family. Elegance with the big bird A380, very exciting."

Cons: "I had thought all crew was on training. Service was poor"

Pros: "Like everything"

Pros: "A380 was comfortable with good entertainment"
Cons: "Attitude of Emirates ground staff and crew. Compare to Emirates Singapore Airpines staff are more polite and helpful."

Pros: "Good seat size and space, very comfortable. Excellent entertainment."
Cons: "One food selection was good, another just plain bad."

Pros: "Service was good."
Cons: "The crew didn't turn off the lights completely. Was tough to get any sleep. The new business class seats are quite cramped."

Pros: "The A380 is a beautiful aircraft. Smooth and quiet. Great movie choices. Crew friendly and mostly efficient. Great value for money!"
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."

Pros: "A380 is so quiet and smooth. Nice to be up the front of the plane, albeit on the lower floor in economy."

Pros: "Food and beverage"

Pros: "Top notch service and experience. Up there with EVA Air as the best I’ve ever seen."
Cons: "Baggage delivery took very long in Hong Kong. Bags were coming off 35 minutes after the first bag came off."

Pros: "Crew amazing."
Cons: "Food variety should be increased."

Pros: "Well fed and provided beverages on trip. Food not gourmet----but what do you expect? Crew was pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "Sure could use a little more leg room. I am 6'2"--so know I am taller than the average bear, but I think even a 5"8" man or woman finds the legroom a little tight---especially on a 15hr flight. On a 3 to 5 hour flight--OK. The legroom was durable--but you asked waht could be better and that point sticks out in my mind."

Pros: "The flight was good"
Cons: "Everything was great"

Pros: "Beautiful, new plane. Amazing, elegant, classy, patient crew. Lot so of nice customer service touches."
Cons: "The food could have been a bit more exciting, but it was solid."

Cons: "This airline will cancel your flight and blame it on customs in the US - the truth is the flight was undersold and they did not want to travel with so few passengers."

Cons: "Unprofessional boarding stuff in jfk ,not helpful & one of them was really rude.but cabin crew are nice . I will never recommend to anyone & I don’t think so I will travel again cathey pacific airlines.thanks"

Pros: "Great crew, but I didn’t really like the Economy Premium seat. Eva Economy I thought was better."

Cons: "The in flight entertainment is very old."

Cons: "flight delayed as usual"

Cons: "delayed as usual"

Pros: "Yup all gud"
Cons: "All gud"

Pros: "Was good service onboard"
Cons: "They could be upgraded my whole itinerary and not just 1/4 of the trip"

Pros: "The crew was readily available and was able to assist with everything needed"
Cons: "A few times my television froze and it was restarted by the crew, but unfortunately the problem persisted."

Pros: "Food was good, service quick and efficient"
Cons: "Inconsiderate people in front reclining seats. Meant already cramped conditions in economy were made worse!"

Cons: "Delayed 1.5 hours. Checked bags took over an hour to reach the claim area (not sure whose fault this was, airline or airport)."

Pros: "Second time in less than two years and satisfied on both trips. Good work Cathay Pacific."

Pros: "Some of the staff were very nice. the plane was not full so was able to sleep whole flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1 hour. we get on plane. then an announcement that in previous flight plane hit a bird so they needed to dissemble the plane. we got off plane at 11:26 pm. waited there. received a text announcement it would leave now at 2 am. the staff on site did not announce this information till 12:45 am. we waited and then got good news flight was going to take off. not in a logical way the plane took off all our luggage off the plane. and then could not add our luggage back on to the plane because tsa was now closed. so paperwork for getting luggage was poorly committed. not bright people. I hope my luggage arrives like they say a day later."

Pros: "Customer service is excellent as usual. The plane is very well outfitted and modern. You can generally trust the Cathay standard. The pilots are good, and even though departure may have been delayed, we arrived ahead of schedule."
Cons: "I didn't prefer the premium economy section. Uncomfortable. I'd rather pay the fare for a cheaper economy seat, that is equally uncomfortable. It's terrible to start charging people for small, petty things like choosing one's seat."

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!!"

Cons: "The stopover in Hong Kong was longer than I would have liked."

Cons: "Didn’t like the seating arrangement. The check in counter was unwilling to accommodate us, even when we tried to check in four and half hours prior departure. We were unable to seat together for the long flight. On the plane, I noticed 2 family members travel together got aisle seat. I was really disappointed that Cathy Pacific allowed passengers pre-select seat in this method and has no authority or unwilling to accommodate others that flight together. Will not flight Cathy Pacific again."

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: "Original itinerary was not followed. Plane from manila to hongkong left late and was transferred to a different flight for hongkong to Auckland .Seats not even together. Was put on 2 lay overs instead of just 1 (hongkong to Aussie then Aussie to Auckland. With no compensation at all. Sorry is not enough."

Pros: "All went to schedule and flight attendants very good"

Pros: "Food is good"
Cons: "Delay"

Pros: "Up and down at the right time and place. Great experience."

Pros: "Loved the service of the crew, the food, and the spacious seating."
Cons: "WiFi would be a nice addition."

Pros: "Entertainment system is decent with good selection of movies."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"

Pros: "The new airplanes have usb plugs and had more pockets on the seat in front of you to place small personal items such as glasses, etc. Appreciated the crew’s offer for assistance when my lap toddler had a tantrum mid flight."
Cons: "Inconsistent with what was offered for the children. One flight provided food , juice and toiletries for my infant. The long haul flight didn’t give anything at all. I just had my lap toddler and my toddler share food since my toddler couldn’t finish all the food provided."

Pros: "I enjoyed the good check in service, and the excellent lounges. As always, the overall level of service on Cathay was good."
Cons: "The utterly appalling seats on Cathay's old B777s are unacceptable for a premium airline. Non-reclining economy seats which are desperately uncomfortable for any flight of more than 1 hour, and completely unsuitable for an overnight flight. These planes desperately need a refit. Best avoided until this has been completed. The flight was overbooked, and the cabin crew seemed stressed and very busy. As a long term frequent flyer with CX, this was a very disappointing experience."

Cons: "Delayed flight after waiting for hours in Hongkong. The male flight attendant was inefficient. Did not check on passenger’s concern even after it was brought to his attention. Simple request for water took forever to arrive. Did not like meal so requested a cup of noodle instead but the noodle never arrived. It is stated in their menu that snacks like cup of noodle is available through out the flight but only when you stand up and get it from them. Very poor service. I will never fly Cathay Pacific again. That will be the first and the last."

Pros: "The crew is excellent. Travelling with baby and they take care of us attentively"
Cons: "Delayed 30min in the end."

Pros: "The stewardesses were super helpful, quick to respond and the pilot even gave regular updates."
Cons: "Bumpy flight and the crew didn't really come around to check on what the passengers needed aka water etc."

Pros: "Crew were pleasant and courteous throughout. Food was not bad, but not excellent either, just airline food."
Cons: "Boarding was somewhat chaotic, with people queuing up early and no assigned groups. Seems to be the norm for Cathay unfortunately."

Cons: "No gap to weigh your head on side of plane. Relatively uncomfortable window seat."

Pros: "- Crew friendly and helpful"
Cons: "- very uncomfortable flight - seated with someone who whined and complained the whole way - could not sleep as the person behind me snored loudly the whole night - Was sitting in the isle seat and kept getting hit in the arm every time the trolley went by"

Pros: "Service was stellar!"

Pros: "Service was great."
Cons: "Another passenger request me move to a window seat from a front row with leg room seat and it was hard for a big guy to go to and from washroom. Plane was hot and sweat throughout the flight making it very uncomfortable. Ran out of food choices for breakfast really fast."

Cons: "International flight delayed after boarding the flight.Flight connection missed. Instead of providing the accommodation, passengers got boarded into flight to Los Angeles. Again another flight to Chicago which dropped the passengers in around midnight. Had to pick them from 4 hour distance from Chicago which was planned early. overall journey was more than 36 hours. No information to the passengers until last minute. Some passengers does know English."

Pros: "Unfortunately nothing positive to write"
Cons: "Disappointing service, poor upkeep of planes, not at all punctual (travelled multiple legs with Cathay, not one of them took off on time). Bad airline, getting worse"

Pros: "Service with hospitality impressed me.Prefer to travel in cathay pacific air lines in future travel plans."

Cons: "Omelette with chicken stil bland."

Pros: "Good leg room in coach. Comfortable seats."
Cons: "All good"

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."

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"

Cons: "Veg meal and breakfast quality was not good. Delhi to hong Kong and from there to LA. Crew member service was not good for economy class."

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."

Pros: "I expected Cathay to be great since it was ranked as the #4 best airlines in the world."
Cons: "However, I didn't find anything better than mediocre airlines. The attendant was kinda cold, service was rough, and toilets get dirty quickly."

Cons: "Swiss perfect as always, Barcelona ground worker disaster, as always...."

Pros: "Flight crew was on top of things. Flight was smooth and ontime."
Cons: "A bit cramped in the economy class. Could have been more room for the money we had to spend on tickets"

Cons: "Need more leg room. Cramped for 8 hours is not a good thing"

Pros: "The movie"
Cons: "More space! The crew could have been nicer"

Pros: "Crew was lovely, patient with all us skiers returning from the slopes. The food was EXCELLENT- for airline food. And I was in economy."
Cons: "The Entertainment tech was not smooth, had difficulty getting it to function and likely annoyed the person in front of me with all my tapping."

Cons: "entertainment sound"

Pros: "The food and service."

Pros: "Crew great service"
Cons: "Boarding was slow —delayed takeoff for nearly an hour"

Cons: "first baggage should be free.....as people travel with 15-20kg hand luggage"

Cons: "Seats are very cramped"

Pros: "A very pleasant and efficient experience. The gate personnel were very helpful with a boarding pass snafu. We decided to check a bag, and the automated option saved us a lot of time and was very easy."

Pros: "The view out the window."
Cons: "Delayed, no leg room. No refeshments."

Pros: "Nice self boarding"
Cons: "No big screen to communicate priority to boarding since I am deaf."

Pros: "Everything, but the lack of entertainment, and the seats I bought were separated."
Cons: "The lack of entertainment, and the seats I bought were separated."

Pros: "Was good"

Pros: "The TVs we’re newer and had a great entertainment selection available for a 12 hour flight"
Cons: "The seats were a very old style. Not very comfortable. Alcohol was required to be purchase which is not typical in international flights of this length."

Pros: "Les hôtesses ont été super gentilles. Merci!!!"
Cons: "L’espace entre les sièges est très réduit"

Pros: "3"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "There was a very long line at the check in counter on the way back. Many people were nervous about missing their flights. Apparently the counter computers were out of order and they only had 2 stations to support the passengers at a very busy time. Other than that, everything was smooth and pleasurable."

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Paying for WiFi."

Pros: "Excellent organization, food and entertainment. Impeccable service."

Cons: "Bathroom not clean"

Pros: "Fast"

Pros: "Swiss is already a great company and yesterday it just got better : I got upgraded on business class between Geneva and New York and it was a very nice treat, the service was perfect, the food excellent, the seat was very comfortable. Thank you SWISS !"

Pros: "Most things were great"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and almost missed my second flight"

Cons: "Worst experience. Very rude employees. Not great flexibility with carry on luggage beware"

Pros: "Relaxing, good entertainment."
Cons: "Paid for upgrade seat and did not get the seat. Flight crew polite and professional."

Pros: "Staff was gracious and accommodating for whatever we needed. It felt much better than typical economy class. It made the 8 hour plus flight quite manageable."

Pros: "crew was great"
Cons: "my entertainment controller did not work and my daughters head phone plug would only half work."

Pros: "Flight was not full and I was able to have several seats to spread out"

Cons: "Had 1 day for quick trip to London. Two hours through security In Geneva and 4 hours late arrival on Swiss at LHR. I can tell you this, the Geneva Airport and Swiss DO NOT run like Swiss Watches. They both get F's."

Cons: "You charge the ticket and my reservation wasn't there!!"

Pros: "The crew members were polite and efficient."
Cons: "There was no climate control. Our rows were freezing cold. People were wearing coats and blankets. Four or five rows up it was warm. My husband asked for more heat and the stewardess said she would turn it up, but nothing happened. Cold air blew out of the ceiling vents for the entire flight. When we reached our gate, we then waited in a long line to have our passports and boarding passes checked again. There were several Swissair crew members, but only one person to check all of the paperwork for economy. Then another long line to show our boarding passes again, while the business class entrance remained unused. Swissair needs someone to manage this better."

Pros: "It's fine no comment"

Cons: "Even one member of the crew was not very nice with my young daughters."

Pros: "ROTTEN SWISS AIR.I WILL NEVER FLY WITH AGAIN!"
Cons: "ARRIVED AT THE AIRPORT AFTER TWO WEEKS HIKING MT BLANC .ANXIOUS TO GET HOME.WHEN I ARRIVE I WAS INFORMED I AM FLYING"STAND BY"KEEP IN MIND I PAID FOR THE TICKETS WHICH I HAD IN MY POSSESSION.YES!I DID BOARD THE FLIGHT BUT FOR ABOUT TWO HOURS I WAS NOT SURE .APPARENTLY SWISS AIR POLICY IS IF THEY OVERBOOK THEY AUTOMATICALLY RELEGATE ECONOMY CLASS PASSENGERS TO STAND BY AND THEN LET THEM GRAVE/BEG FOR THE SEAT YOU ALREADY PAID FOR.I WILL NOT FORGET THIS!40 YEARS OF FLYING THIS WAS A FIRST FOR ME.YOU STINK SWISS AIR!"

Pros: "Polite cabin crew. Quick check- in at JFK"

Pros: "great food staff /crew very nice"
Cons: "snacks more tv entertanment"

Cons: "The plane left over an hour late and we had to sit in the plane for this entire time."

Pros: "Food was great."
Cons: "-Puking Child - Puke stayed in the aisle for about 30 minutes and then when the plane landed there was more and it wasn't cleaned up - SO much turbulence for 3 hours and no announcement was made about it. Was slightly concerning. Terrible turbulence"

Pros: "Wonderfully nice crew. Food is pretty decent even with Economy. Seats are comfortable."
Cons: "Their iPhone App (and to a lesser extend the website too) is awfully slow. It takes forever to gather booking info and check in. Sometimes the boarding pass just don't get delivered to my SMS.
