Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Plane was super clean and comfortable. A long flight but we'll cared for by host."
Cons: "Entertainment and access to Wifi"
Pros: "They passed by me when they served the meals because they thought I had it already which it was someone behind me who got his meal since he had a special meal request. So I ended up to talk to them that I haven’t had my meal yet. It was embarrassing moment for me. They seemed thinking that I lied to them."
Cons: "They are well trained crews so I have no better ideas about improvements"
Pros: "Very comfortable; excellent service"
Pros: "When the seat folded down (business class) into a bed, it gave almost a twin size bed that was flat."
Cons: "Being in business class, I had expected the food to be better. Also, the red wines offered were only a sub selection of the ones in the menu."
Cons: "Flat beds on second flight"
Cons: "WiFi didn’t work on 3 of the 4 flights although all purportedly had it. Also didn’t work the majority of the time in the Business Class Lounge in Singapore. Food was mediocre both on flights and in the lounge. Movie selection could hardly have been worse."
Cons: "Flat bed in business class was disappointing. No way anyone taller than 6’ could stretch out. Overall, it was an inferior experience to business class on Cathay Pacific, which sets the standard IMO."
Pros: "Great seats and efficient service all round."
Pros: "Despite being a very late flight at 11 pm, the crew was courteous but not over the top, when all the passengers wanted to catch some sleep"

Cons: "Old plane, entertainment system is very old and screen bad"

Pros: "Comfortable seat, variety of entertainment (sceen) , good food options and friendly and courteous service."
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."
Cons: "Cabin little bit cold"
Cons: "With no food preferences specified, it takes a significantly longer time to get your meal as there are a lot of people who have special dietary requirements on certain routes."
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours behind schedule"
Pros: "Able to check luggage in 48 hrs before flight saving $50 storage fees, so went back into CBD for the day."
Cons: "20 mins late boarding meant plane left 35 mins late although still arrived on time."
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!"
Pros: "The food is very good in economy. Large screen tv gor movies and games."
Cons: "all was good, nothing bad"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Not as good as they were once"
Pros: "I’ve flown with a lot of airlines in every class. This was an economy class flight and still the food was better than I’ve received in business class on American. The seat was comfortable, the entertainment options varied and extensive and the cabin team were amazing. They clean the bathrooms between uses. Seriously how do other airlines still exist?"
Cons: "No free upgrade? ;-). But that’s unreasonable. I love this airline having not flown with them for 4 years I don’t understand why!"
Pros: "Friendliness and efficiency of crew. Comfortable seats and in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Not much. This airline is up there with the best."
Pros: "Excellent crew services"
Cons: "Entertainment system is rather tired for today’s standard for first tier airlines, in particular the headphone jacks which may not work from wear & tear. It’s a hit & miss whether the sound works or not. Obviously mine didn’t on one side this time. Very frustrating if you are on a long flight and there’s nothing you can do if the flight is full."
Pros: "AMAZING IN EVERY WAY. PLANES ARE OUTSTANDING SERVICE IS OUTSTANDING INFLIGHT STAFF ARE EXTREMELY POLITE AND FRIENDLY AND ELEGANT!:)) AIRPORT IS SUPERB THIS IS MY FAVORITE AIRLINE!"
Cons: "THE WEBSITE LISTS PRICES IN SINGAPORE DOLLARS AND IT IS ONLY IN THE FINAL STAGES OF A BOOKING IS ONE TOLD WHAT THE US $ PRICE IS. THIS NEEDS TO CHANGE. WHEN YOU CALL SINGAPORE AIRLINES THERE ARE VERY LONG WAIT TIMES."

Pros: "Great service always"
Pros: "Crew service"
Cons: "Very old entertainment system. Poor screen visibility. Cramped"
Pros: "Entertainment service is, really, second to none."

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 hot towels. The meals were good. The entertainment screen was great, and a great selection of movies and TV."
Cons: "Don't change anything!"
Pros: "Everything was outstanding. The cleanliness of the airplane, the food, the friendliness of the crew, I just can't say enough good things about my experience flying on Singapore Airlines."
Pros: "Very nice crew."
Cons: "Why are the slippers/socks not distributed before take off or already in the seat pocket? Why is the food order taken after take of and not before? Why does singapore airline have old seats I new planes? What happened to the earlier leader? Friendly staff alone does not make the deal. And given ticket prices SQ is not attractive any more for me."
Pros: "Great flight amazing service"
Pros: "Everything else was good"
Cons: "Old aircraft with tired looking seats."
Pros: "Everything in this flight is very good. Next traveling time I will consider this airline first!!"
Pros: "Amazing plane and crew!"

Pros: "This was the second time that we were able to fly to Germany with Singapore airline. I will always try to fly with them in the future. I have been on numerous transcontinental trips and I rank them as number one. They make me feel like I am welcome."
Cons: "There was very little leg room for people over five feet tall. Everything else was exceptional."
Pros: "The flight took off 10 minutes earlier and landed about 30 minutes earlier. I ordered seafood meals and the food was delicious and the service was excellent. The movies and flight info on the screen were very easy to operate."

Cons: "Wifi, I was on replacement aircraft and no wifi for the whole flight"
Pros: "See previous notes."
Cons: "See previous notes."

Pros: "Easy flight."
Cons: "Preferred seats in economy class are very uncomfortable if your row is full. Long, miserable flight."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic. They were incredibly polite and accommodating. This was my first time flying for more than three hours (15 hours from Houston to Auckland) and it really could not have gone much better."
Cons: "Always need a little more legroom in economy but it's a small sacrifice for getting an affordable flight."
Pros: "Airline is pretty good"
Cons: "I had a horrible experience booking with Kayak because normally I should be allowed two bags to check in but I was only allowed one because I booked through kayak."
Cons: "Seats, food, entertainment"
Pros: "Checking in, bag drop, and boarding were all super fast and easy. Flight was on time."
Pros: "flight was great"
Cons: "food could've been a little better"
Pros: "Comfortable seat."
Cons: "Ran out of meal options, flight was delayed so one option breakfast not appropriate at midday. The flight attendant blamed the person in front of me for taking the last other option. I had to clarify with her that meant there was only one option left. She seemed annoyed at me for asking."
Pros: "Everyone was very nice, food was good, movie choice was great"
Cons: "Would have liked a more comfortable seat. Couldn’t sleep well"
Pros: "Very efficient trip."
Cons: "One flight attendant was subdued and not too bubbly."
Pros: "The entire experience is well thought out"
Pros: "We made it to Christchurch safely and on time."
Cons: "We were charged $120 per checked bag. We couldn’t check in online, so we couldn’t pre-pay at the lower rate. Felt a lot like fraud, honestly."
Cons: "Was not informed a return flight listing required Was not informed $260 baggage fees"
Pros: "The entire crew was excellent in all areas and all the time even on a 14 hour flight that had been delayed for about 20 hours."
Cons: "When we arrived in Auckland very late, Air New Zealand out me up in a third rate hotel in a very bad part of the city with little to no communication on how to get back to the airport the next day. The customer service number I was given, was mo help at all. Flights were great, but the way they handled the unexpected was very poorly done."
Cons: "Upon arrival we were informed that each checked bag was $60. This was news to us. The NZ flight employee informed us that Air NZ informed us quite well of this info, this the booking agent was at fault."
Pros: "Entertainment was great and even leg room was decent for economy seating"
Cons: "There are no personal air vents. I was sweating for 3/4 of the flight and had to ask for the air to be turned down 3 times. The air vents they do have point inwards and do not get the window seats at all. Hope the return flight is better"
Pros: "I got there on time"
Cons: "Staff not incredibly nice but OK. The thing that bothered me most is that if you book through KAYAK that sends you to Virgin Australia, you can’t book bag, nor buy a meal if you want. I didn’t want to meal but I did want a bag and it’s a big difference. If you do it online it’s 39 Australian dollars, but if you do it at the airport it’s AU$160. That’s just outrageous and the staff was not helpful at all"
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and went out of their way to do what they could to make everyone happy and comfortable."
Cons: "I had input that I was vegan when I booked and it’s on my airpoints profile- however I did not receive a vegan meal which was a bit disappointing."
Pros: "Good flight. Good crew. An overall good experience"
Pros: "The crew, entertainment, and food were all great!"
Cons: "Our luggage did not arrive. This puts a huge damper on our honeymoon."
Cons: "bummed I couldn't even opt in or purchase wifi. being sel-employed and having such long flight - its just a missed opportunity."
Pros: "Booked these flights though Kayak. Landing from LAX at 0730 at Auckland international terminal and then departing at 0900 from the domestic terminal. This is not enough time, doesn’t allow for customs and immigration. It was a really stressful experience running between terminals with my luggage, as there was less than a 1 hour window after getting through customs and immigration, so the bag drop at international wouldn’t accept them. Got to departure gate 12 minutes before plane departure. You need more time to have a good experience !"
Cons: "Not enough time booked by kayak between an international arrival and domestic departure"
Pros: "good entertainment"
Cons: "we purchased a sky couch for an extra $700 and was not put in a skycouch row. I have contacted Air New Zealand and have yet to hear back from them."
Pros: "Nothing really. Smooth boarding.on time departure"
Cons: "Passengers with more than one bag as hand luggage"
Pros: "Great customer service, from boarding to disembarking. Great care for comfort and needs."
Cons: "Selection of video options on the app entertainment systems."
Cons: "They charged $120 per checked bag- none are included in airfare. Also, no free food."
Pros: "The crew was super nice and so accommodating. They were all quickly available during the entire 14 hour flight, and always had a smile. I thought the food was nice as well, and there were so many entertainment options."
Cons: "Having a bit more room during such a long flight would have been nice!"
Pros: "The boarding and on-board service were excellent. Enough free-of-charge entertainment to keep me occupied during the 3-hour flight between SYD and CHC. Plenty of room for carry-on luggage."
Cons: "Felt like I was flying a US carrier - very little room between the rows. I was surprised by this, as I thought that non-US carriers generally don’t pack their planes. I was surprised, but not inconvenienced by this, since it was a morning flight and only 3 hours gate-to-gate."
Pros: "As has been my prior experience with Air New Zealand, I found the trip to be virtually flawless. The boarding process was smooth and efficient, the crew was great and seemed to genuinely enjoy their job, the food was good, and I had lots of choices on the IFE system. For flying cattle class on a 15 hour flight, I arrived reasonably rested and content."
Cons: "My only complaint is that the extra $60 I had to pay in order to get a window seat got me just that. There was no additional room either length- or width-wise and no other advantages other than the window. I would not pay for that "privilege" again and I'm sorry to see that ANZ has stooped to the level of its American counterparts."
Pros: "Left on time. And I got 2 snacks."
Pros: "The staff was nice."
Cons: "No room, It was painful for someone with nerve damage and severe arthritis to even get to a seat."

Cons: "All g."
Pros: "The crew and plane was tops"
Cons: "It is very long, but that is no reflection on you."

Pros: "Crew, cleanliness, movies"
Cons: "Meals were so-so."
Pros: "The inflight seatback entertainment."
Cons: "Tiny seats and no snacks or drinks in flight."
Pros: "We flew premium economy. The staff was wonderful great first experience! I really wish the other three crews could have kept this momentum going as my other flights with ANZ were less than thrilling! The flight attendant staff was phenomenal on my iah to akl leg. My crew on the akl to iah leg. Brandon gave the initial intro and seemed to follow the original crews standards. Unfortunately, we had an older flight attendant who seemed less than thrilled to be with us this flight."
Cons: "I wish I could give a true rating of ANZ as their crews apparently don't follow any protocol for providing the same exceptional service received on my maiden flight with them."
Pros: "Wonderful service from the ground crew. They went beyond the call of duty. Excellent experience. Thanks to everyone"
Pros: "No complaints at all"
Pros: "The plane was not full and luckily i was put into an Economy Couch row, so i got to lay down and get a great sleep. All the staff were friendly and helpful. The food was lovely."
Cons: "Nothing, as usual excellent service from Air New Zealand."
Pros: "Fantastic crew!"
Pros: "Cool dimmers for window shade; flight attendant notice we did not have headphones and gave us some first class looking ones that really cancels out the noise. Although we had it in the pocket we did not choose to use at that time but she took it upon herself. Staff always friendly."
Pros: "Clean. Enjoyed the entertainment."
Cons: "We took off at 7:30 and were given wsaer. Did not receive food for two hours which would have been fine if we could have had a coffee, tea, cocktail or a wine. We're not offered a drink until after food was served."
Cons: "Better kits for kids to keep them busy longer. The one that was provided kept my kid busy for about an hour or so in a 12hr flight."

Pros: "Crew is horrible. Very rude and refused to help by any means when i asked for my baby stroller. I have 2 kids that I had to carry all the way through customs and bagga claim because refuse to bring stroller to the gate and was very rude in their answer. Horrible Experience. I will never fly emirates"
Cons: "train the crew to respect customers, and to show care for families. I'm surprised Emirates always market about how friendly they are with family travels when the crew not only refuse to bring the stroller to the gate like all other airlines, but was also very rude. Her name was Annalie"
Pros: "Jenna our crew member was amazing. My wife and I traveled with our 5 kids ages 8, 6, 4, &11month old twins. Thought it would be a total nightmare but the crew was so helpful and understanding. They made sure the older 3 got their infotainment system working and setup the bassinets for the twins."

Pros: "Food was okay. Staff on plane. Ice"
Cons: "I got singled out."
Pros: "Food is good . Service is good"

Cons: "All good"
Cons: "One carryon and no personal item - inconvenient and irritating! Security staff disposed of manicure scissors that met printed guidelines. Checked baggage was damaged, will avoid Emirates because of this. Staff, comfort, and food were very good, but will still select other airlines"
Cons: "My original flight was delayed so I needed to book for a hotel in manila and need to rebook my connecting flight from christchurch to queenstown. Supposedly, the airline company should offer a reimbursement for all my additional expenses. Vey inconvenient on my part."
Cons: "Upon arrival at the final destination, I couldn’t find one of my 2 checked baggages, asked the emirates ground staff and i was told that they were unable to track the bag and not sure if it was loaded on to the aircraft at the origin airport or lost in transit. Lost my wedding suite and fiancé ‘s wedding gown and plenty other wedding things."

Pros: "Everything from the plane, crew service and timing. Excellent"
Pros: "I loved everything from the food, the crew, the in flight entertainment."

Pros: "Great entertainment set up, a free hour of wifi and good food. The wifi was priced fairly. Overall, it was a pleasant flight that I even managed to go to sleep. I normally can't sleep on planes."

Cons: "The seats were terrible and not enough cushioning"
Pros: "The FA that served my part of the cabin was polite, friendly, and cheerful."
Cons: "I had one piece of hand carried bag from when I boarded on the DC to Dubai leg. On this Dubai to Manila leg I was shocked to discover that the ground crew wanted all hand carried items weighed, and I mean ALL including things like travel pillows and duty free items. I was made to pay $88 for excess weight on the exact same bag I had with me on the first leg. Worse, the (I'm guessing) head of the ground crew gave random exceptions (for example someone had a thick copy of the Koran and some other item that were not weighed). My excess weight probably weighed less than that book. Many passengers ended up returning purchased duty free items and some even abandoned their bags. Upon getting past the initial gate the passengers were ferried by BUS to the plane. The bus ride took forever and of course, in the heat of the Dubai sun, the passengers were made to climb stairs carrying their "overweight" bags to board the plain."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Flight was a hour late, then we sat on the plane for another half hour because people were in the wrong seat"
Pros: "Whole experience was poor"
Cons: "Passenger seated next to me was bigger than the seat could take the whole flight it was u uncomfortable for me to even move an inch He was a smoker and smelt really bad I was told the seat next to me would be empty There was no space for my bag as others brought more than 1 piece of luggage with them on board The toilets weren't checked it was wet and dirty throughout Usually I fly 2/4 times in 60 days with emirates but this was the worse experience I had things on my tray before landing the hostess rudely asked me to put it in the pocket ahead of me as she didn't want to take it from me which is what I had originally requested for On the outbound flight I think your net package by mistake charged me Twice ! I strongly suggest if someone is bigger than a certain size then they should book 2 seats as 17 hours it wasn't easy for me to ask him to sit in a correct manner or have the handle half up so he uses my seat too Overall u satisfied and painful experience Net was slower on outbound too"
Pros: "Lots of leg room. Excellent entertainment system."
Cons: "Not every seat had a power outlet. They took the headphones back a little too soon."

Cons: "Julie was the most rude person I've ever had the Unsatisfaction Of meeting."

Pros: "The flight crew was very friendly and polite. Brought the drink cart around a couple times to make sure everyone was satisfied beverage wise."
Cons: "With it being a smaller plane there wasn't a whole lot of room for a 6'3" guy to sit comfortably for a long stretch. Although understandable for the size of plane it was my only dislike of the flight so overall a very good job."
Cons: "Plane packed, delayed, and entertainment not working. Sucked."
Pros: "Much more comfortable."

Pros: "I flew from OKC to Houston and then home to DSM. The price was terrific for a one way flight. I bought at 2:30 am for $130. I checked later the next morning and the price was $455!

Cons: "I didn't fly yet"
Pros: "Very friendly, helpful crew"
Cons: "Unappetizing food choices (pasta with cream sauce or beef with sweet sauce), and food poorly prepared (I picked the beef, it made me queasy). Plane was old and unrenovated - there was no entertainment, but you could still see where the old air phones used to be in the seat acts. Boarding was confusing, even for seasoned flyers, with multiple groups using one line."
Pros: "I had a great flight"
Cons: "The normal when you land and getting off flight"
Cons: "This leg had entertainment that we could watch on our phones that never ended up working."
Pros: "I slept the whole way and wasn't disturbed"
Cons: "The flight was late/ delayed over 6 hours. The crew was rude and very unprofessional. This was the worst experience i have ever had flying. I can honestly say I will Never fly United airlines again. I understand that flights get delayed, but when every worker at the flight check in desk, and flight attendants are rude and have a smug attitude as if they don't care then at that point i walk away from ever doing business with you again."

Cons: "We paid for first class seats from Houston to Salt Lake City, thinking it would be provide us more than a regular seat. It did not. We received one drink and were allowed to pick from a basket of snacks (packaged pretzels and cookies), but that was it. No additional food, no entertainment options on our plane, no blanket, no pillows, no hot towels. We basically paid all that extra money for a little bigger seat. It was not worth it. This was our first time flying with United in a while and it will definitely be our last."
Pros: "Boarding process was orderly and smooth, attendants did perfect well attending to all issues and complaints"

Pros: "Easy boarding, friendly crew"

Cons: "My seat was changed within a half hour of my flight and I wasn't notified until right before I boarded and had to refresh my e-ticket. I wouldn't have waited for group 5, when in reality I was group 3. and then because of this I had to turn over my carryon because no room for group 5 carryons. Also I like to have an aisle seat, and was squished into a window seat."
Pros: "I liked that I slept the whole way."
Cons: "That united barely serves any snacks, need something besides that wafer that won't even make a dent in hunger."
Pros: ". We got back 30minutes early then schedule!"
Cons: "Late departure - maintenance issues. When I arrived in Managua my luggage was lost. The United representative promised it would arrive 10 hours later at 9pm that night and he would have it delivered to me at my hotel that night. When we called to check in the status later that day we were told they had no one to deliver the bag that night (crazy because there are many drivers and taxis in Managua available that night) but promised it would arrive at 9am. 9am came and went and no bag. Wasted a holiday day in Nicaragua because had no clothes to wear to go on any tours. Horrible service."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Boarding was quick"
Cons: "No video player"
Pros: "Good crew, polite, professional. Clean cabin."
Cons: "1. No video screens. A/V offered through wifi to PDAs, but no USB charging could limit viewing. 2. Seating is too close. 3. Very limited micro-snacks."
