One of the stewardesses accidentally poured a drink on my blanket, another said that the tea was so ($40) that he may have to charger for $20 for the 2nd cup I asked for. The food was terrible, I have upset stomach probably food poisoning, a stewardess did ofer ginger tea. Not a very good experiences this time.

It was a very good experience

Smooth flight. Communications were good. Food quality was so-so.

clean plane

Cons: "Poor customer service and lack of care for loyal passengers"
Pros: "Crew was attentive and made extra effort to meet special requests from passengers."
Pros: "The crew were excellent"
Cons: "Seats and leg room not as comfortable as older plane. The entertainment system was confusing to use ( again older model) hence not as user friendly."
Pros: "Everything. New plane amazing food on a two hour flight Great new entertainment system on the seat back."
Cons: "A little more leg room."
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Seafood pasta was good."
Cons: "I wish all airlines have a foot rest."
Pros: "Perfect timing"
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: "The layover in Singapore was a nightmare with insufficient hotel accommodation, nothing but Asian food and overly officious security staff."
Pros: "lot of turbulence, uncomfortable ride"
Cons: "entertainment system was good"
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: "Prompt and timely service"
Cons: "Food can be more tasty"
Pros: "Satisfied and feel good on Singapore airlines, definitely will consider next trip"
Pros: "Espresso coffee, champagne, crew, headphones"
Pros: "So good to get on a flight where I can fit in the seats..."
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: "Spacious and comfortable bed."
Cons: "The food wasn't that great. Average at best."
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."
Pros: "Flight crew great"
Cons: "The plane was freezing - absolutely freezing. Too cold. There were not enough fluids given out. Given we could not even take water brought in the airport into the plane there needed to be regular distributions of fluids on the flight as there was on the flight from London toy Singapore. It is a long flight and being dehydrated on a plane is not a good thing."
Pros: "Efficient, comfortable."
Pros: "Great service and comfort."
Cons: "Food was bland and breakfast availability was a joke. On any flight, passengers do not want spicy or evening meals, and having a limited amount number of breakfasts available was not amusing. The crew had done 5 rows and we were 6 row from kitchen and they had run out ."
Cons: "leg space."
Pros: "I liked the space I had to stretch out, 3 seats to myself in economy enabled me to get some solid sleep between meals. The crew werebalways very polite and friendly."
Cons: "The flights were always late causing us to miss a connection. Also when purchasing the ticket I was not informed of two extra stops that only showed up when I checked in."
Pros: "I'm starting to sound like a fan boy but Singapore airlines masks this look easy. Comfortable seat great entertainment, edible food and wonderful in for service team. What's not to like"
Cons: "Had to drive to Huston. Can we get rid of BA and American and just have Singapore handle the flights at DFW?"
Pros: "The service from the ground crew and cabin crew are very professional. Friendly and very helpful."
Pros: "Friendliness and efficiency of crew. Comfortable seats and in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Not much. This airline is up there with the best."
Pros: "Great they are now flying Canberra to Singapore. Judging by our full flight it is very popular also!"
Pros: "Crew very good as was entertainments system"
Cons: "You cannot disguise the age of the 777, 30 year old design. Noisy and basic compared to 380, 350."
Pros: "Service from Singapore airlines"
Pros: "Crew, cabin and food."
Cons: "Lack of entertainment console at each seat"
Pros: "Like the food"
Pros: "Liked almost everything: newspapers, menu card, mini-toiletries bag, hot towel, food choice, ice cream, entertainment options, head sets provided (better quality than US airlines), lavatories kept clean and with less waiting time, number and friendliness of flight staff."
Cons: "What I did not like: Boarding was slower than expected. Large plane = longer boarding time."
Pros: "I ordered a Indian vegeterian meal. It was very good. I feel bad about all the playin cups, and garbage that gets wasted. Please recycle everything."
Cons: "The plane was very cold. A lot of movies were offered but I couldn't find anything I wanted to watch."
Pros: "Movie"
Cons: "Food was. Not available. They said they don't have extra veg food . I selected beg food still it shows them non veg and I was pass my way with empty stomach"
Pros: "The crew was really great, so friendly and accommodating. I wasn't able to order a vegetarian meal ahead of time, but they still gave me one on board when I asked. There was an amazing selection of movies and they refilled my drinks without even asking. I would recommend this airline to anyone traveling to Asia."
Pros: "The staff are so friendly and helpful. Highly recommend travelling with the airline. The A380 is a great way to travel with more space in economy. I booked seats on the upper deck where there is a smaller economy cabin. Makes you feel a bit more civilised up the top!"
Cons: "Economy class isn't great for a long haul flight but the staff make it much more bearable."
Pros: "Nothing specific"
Cons: "No real dramas"
Pros: "The food wss delicious which was surprising. The lamb stew with fresh peas was delicious, and I don't even like peas!"
Cons: "Th entertainment system was old and tiny. Think watching VHS video tapes on a five inch screen. I think my phone screen was wider."
Pros: "Best coach experience I have had. Good airplane food. Gracious service. Tail wind made us early which was a good thing because LAX is such a mess and it would have been difficult to make our connection with the long bus ride and 2.5 mile walk to the Alaska terminal."
Pros: "The new non stop flight frim Singapore to San Francisco really reduced the total travel time. I saved at least 4 hours in choosing this flight"
Pros: "Crew is remarkable"
Pros: "Clean ,on time"
Cons: "The movies were not updated"
Pros: "Friendly and approachable"
Pros: "Everything on time."
Cons: "Nothing really bad one food on return flight not great but ok."
Pros: "Good crew, but working with some tired, old equipment."
Cons: "The padding in my seat seemed to be a bit thin and became progressively more uncomfortable as the flight progressed. The in-flight entertainment systems are really showing some wear & tear. The screen was blurry, the letters on the control buttons had work off and the sound quality was terrible."
Pros: "Food was delicious. They served dinner and breakfast. The flight was not crowded. I was able to sleep by stretching across 3 economy seats in my row."
Cons: "It would be better if the armrests went up."
Pros: "Nice, short flight. Smooth ride."
Cons: "Had a middle seat between two very large women. Couldn't be helped, was a full flight."
Pros: "Their English, unlike US English, is a little hard to understand."
Pros: "The plane was very comfortable, food was excellent and everything in worked well. Crew was very helpful and got you anything you needed."
Pros: "Wellington airport is the most accessible and relaxed I’ve used, and the Air New Zealand Check-in process was the easiest I’ve used so far."
Pros: "Premium Economy had plenty of legroom. Food service was comparable to business class."
Pros: "The entertainment was excellent and so was the food."
Pros: "Crew very friendly, nice airplane, clean"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Late start of check in"
Pros: "The crew was super courteous and nice."
Cons: "Nice newer aircraft and the crew goes out of their way to make you feel comfortable."
Pros: "Everything. Best service and great seat room."
Pros: "The flight was delayed for two hours but they kept announcing the delay as though we were about to begin boarding and reason they gave for the delay was hard to believe."
Cons: "Communication"
Pros: "The airport was great! Very easy access, fast check in and security. Loved the LOTR theme. Uneventful and beautiful flight."
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "it was very cold"
Cons: "No air vents"
Pros: "Reliable service. Flew Air NZ twice without any hiccups. Boards on time, leaves on time. Get a biscuit (cookie), drink, and sweet. Had room on both flights also. Not packed to the gills and enjoyed the aerial view of the lovely NZ countryside."
Cons: "Nothing... didn’t give 5 star due to no monitor/tv for entertainment but with such a short flight it really isn’t necessary."
Cons: "Charged us for baggage, even though the flight was international and clearly stated on their website international flights included baggage. Had to pay more than we paid for our flights just to check a bag."
Pros: "I liked that it got me from point a to point b. I had to pay extra to watch movies, no meal on an international flight (tbh I'm not sure what I ticketed and didn't tick while booking, but I mean it was nz to aus, come on)."
Cons: "Not getting my luggage across the ditch, paying for movies as an extra, no meal."
Pros: "Although I'd like to see the seats upgraded to ones adjustable to lie flat seats without getting up and several steps, the crew on the Air New Zealand flights make the difference. What a PLEASANT experience. Great passenger service boarding to landing."
Cons: "Once made, the lie flat seats are extremely comfortable. However, it's a bit of a hassle to get the bed made. Also the seats don't offer as much privacy as seats on other carriers (AA, UA, LH etc). If they changed the seats, the airline can compete with any other, as the crews are superb."
Pros: "vvery comfortable flight"
Pros: "Premium Economy was worth the price! The section was not as full, and the service was wonderful."
Pros: "Very friendly and accommodating staff. Good food, comfortable seats, and excellent entertainment choices."
Pros: "Boarding best I've ever done"
Cons: "Food was airplane food why can't they do better"
Pros: "Not much to like with the cattle car ride that was an hour late."
Cons: "I was shocked at the baggage charge upon checking in and was told I just purchased a seat from Virgin Australia but no baggage transport with the flight. When kayak directed me to VA, I made the purchase and certainly did not remember being offered a chance to purchase baggage fee as other airlines offer (e.g. BA). While I understand kayak refer users to search airlines baggage fees it need to make sure that airlines offer true and baggage fees at the time of purchase so the full cost of flight is clear at purchase time."
Pros: "I thought our male flight attendant was not only slow to offer water, pick up trash, or respond to attendant calls, but he was also rude about it, making excuses when asked about the delays instead of simply apologizing and making sure to do better the next time. Also, the calzone breakfast was pretty bad. But other than that, the flight to LAX was ok. The entertainment system, as usual, was excellent, and we had room enough to stretch out during the long flight."
Cons: "I thought our male flight attendant was not only slow to offer water, pick up trash, or respond to attendant calls, but he was also rude about it, making excuses when asked about the delays instead of simply apologizing and making sure to do better the next time. Also, the calzone breakfast was pretty bad. But other than that, the flight to LAX was ok."
Pros: "The service was very nice. The food was good. The entertainment choices were good as well."
Cons: "The seating was to crowded, you could tell that an extra seat was added in the middle section. What was once three seats was now four. Very disapointing. A deal breaker for long flights."
Cons: "Economy was too squished. Hard to eat with people next to you."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Couldn't check in online and book seats. That was a bummer."
Pros: "Amazing service. Friendly staff. Sat in row 38. Seat was comfortable and foot rest was amazing! I would highly recommend air New Zealand!"
Pros: "Everyone on the plane acted like they were doing you a favor by flying with them more than likely we won't use them again ... kinda of like Frontier airline"
Pros: "Nothing stood out. They do provide ear phone on the flight."
Cons: "Seating was very cramped and I'm only median built.."
Pros: "Seats, blankets, entertainment system and service was solid. Food was also good, not great, but included in fair which is nice. Cabin Crew were a delight."
Cons: "I needed to receive a boarding pass in person, could not receive a digital one before arriving at LAX."
Pros: "Good IFE"
Cons: "No enforcement of carry on - therefore no bin space"
Pros: "The flight crew was great. They keep teverything movies ng and were polite and happy throughout the flight we will definately fly them again!!"
Pros: "Staff and the cleaninless of the plane."
Pros: "amazingly pleasant crew, great food, efficient service, very comfortable."
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "Lots of entertainment options and friendly crew."
Pros: "great flight attendants who really seem like they want to be flying. The economy seats are better than most other airlines. I will always check to see if Air NZ flys to the destination I'm going. They are classy."
Cons: "flight was seriously delayed, poor communication from staff & NZ Air app to travelers re reason for & how long delay would actually be. Shortly after we finally boarded I got a text saying our connecting flight from Christchurch to Dunedin was cancelled. So, we were flown to Christchurch & given hotel accommodations for the night, only to be flown BACK the next day to Wellington to catch a flight to Dunedin. All in all quite infuriating."
Cons: "Food was horrible"
Pros: "Airport was easy to get to and the flight was very smooth and comfortable on a twin engine plane that is quite modern (noise level very minimal even though it is a propeller plane). Air New Zealand attendants were super friendly and helpful."
Cons: "They lost my bag and the flight was delayed."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Boarding and replanting was smooth and efficient."
Cons: "Seats were tiny. Arm rests did not rise. Seats barely tilted back. You had to fight with the touch screen entertainment system to get it to do anything. Also it seemed like we sought out the most turbulent altitude possible."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable. The crew was friendly it was a smooth flight the food was good and I enjoyed the snacks also."
Cons: "There was't anything I didn't like I thought it was all good"
Pros: "Everything!"
Pros: "Le confort des sièges, la propreté de l'avion, la gentillesse du personnel à bord."
Pros: "Great service. Food was excellent. Crew was friendly. Best transAtlantic flight experience I've had."
Pros: "Business class flat bed is proper flat with amazing bedding. Airline is professional but doesn't take themselves too seriously. There when you need them, no attitude when you request something."
Pros: "Service was excellent , food was very good. Comfortable. Flight."

Good

Qantas and Emirates flights were awesome, the timing of dimming lights to encourage sleep was great and the food service and timings were perfect. bathrooms were clean and enough legroom in economy

Pros: "Emirates staff are very professional"
Cons: "To remove menu on paper. Rather Emirates should display the menu on the screen like other airlines who care about the environment"
Cons: "Just because I have bought my ticket on points I was not given a chauffeur driver."
Pros: "Crew helped me with a chamomile to help me sleep."
Cons: "It was quite good"
Pros: "Unprofessional crew member how to treat as GOLD member in business class cabin"
Cons: "No comment"
Pros: "I was happy with all aspects of the flight"
Pros: "I had my seat changed due to my injured leg, staff acted swiftly, flight was relaxing."
Cons: "They ran out of options on the food and considering it wasn't a full flight that surprised me."
Pros: "All was fine"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Comfort. Service. Cleanliness. Efficiency. Hassle-free."
Cons: "Very small plastic cups of water. On-board on call crew service was slow."
Pros: "Breakfast portions were too small, and choices were not great. Boarding procedures were a little chaotic due to small space, and ground staff was not very polite when ordering passengers to board."
Cons: "Child kicking seat from behind for entire flight"
Pros: "Ditto......great"
Cons: "Airplane to late"
Pros: "Very efficient. Fab selection of movies."
Cons: "I am lacto vegetarian but my only option was vegan. Second meal was a banana and some tired bits of pepper and carrot. Surely an airline like Emirates can offer a meat-free option!"
Cons: "Boarding from connecting flight was manic, gate closing as we arrived only to then sit on the plane for about 40 mins before it moved. Extra leg room seats at extra cost are near toilets and watching the comings and goings from there is not pleasant. Staff ok but nothing special, left waiting with forms for lost luggage, little explanation. Plane decor looks tired, seats narrow. Luggage lost. Know why I like to fly Thai airways"
Cons: "Crew staff"
Pros: "Lots of selection in movies"
Cons: "There was a glitch on the entertainment system and the staff tried to reset with no luck. Our row and the back row was affected and we could not watch anything on the screen for a good 2 hrs of the flight. Boarding was rather disoriented. The ground crew did not give clear instructions to control the crowd."
Pros: "Excellent food, entertainment options, staff was great with the exception of one. Plane entertainment technology varies from route to route."
Cons: "Dubai airport is highly disappointing. The bathroom situation is atrocious! I am not exaggerating when I say I waited in line of 25 and 35 women two different times! The men’s situation isn’t ideal but is no where near the problem that is the women’s restrooms. The boarding process is mildly confusing - there is no public drinking fountains but if you buy water you are not allowed to take it to your gate. This info isn’t posted anywhere and makes no sense bc you purchased the water after you were checked through security. Also this rule truly only applies to women. A stewardess showed preferential treatment to someone who looked more native than us and then didn’t apologize. I understood the customer was upset so the flight attendant was trying to pacify the lady/couple but at least apologize for being rude. Dubai airport very much favors men and I would never travel without my husband. I would fly Emirates again but it won’t be my top choice and I won’t be going back to the Dubai airport anytime soon."
Pros: "Great and friendly cabin crew. Lots of movies to chose. Food was great."
Cons: "All was great"
Pros: "Emirates leg was good. Easy checkin and I think slightly large than usual seats."
Cons: "I bought a return from Emirates with the returning flight from Australia to London as a code share with Qantas. Qantas does not honour the e-ticekts from Emirates and will NOT allow you to preselect seats online. You have to hope for a good seat at airport checkin. Too bad, as I would have been prepared to pay extra for a seat upgrade."
Pros: "Footrest would be good for a long haul flight."
Cons: "one of the Lady crew member was very rude. When i asked her child meal she made a very bad face and told me that u should have booked online. I explained her i tried but couldnt book coz of may be cheap fare category. It was quite embarrassing for me :("
Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "To be honest I liked everything with this flight"
Cons: "I didn't get upgraded to business or first class ;) Maybe next time though"
Pros: "Good service, great crew, comfortable seat and pitch."
Cons: "The food was mediocre compared to usual standards."
Pros: "We had good seats & crew were friendly, but not as good as the Sydney to Dubai crew"
Cons: "The lateness of our departure with no reason given from Dubai."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Kayak booked the ticket through flight network and when we reached airport the airline staff was not able to find the ticket. The flight was missed in trying to find what went wrong and when called the flight network they told that due to insufficient time between booking and departure time they canceled the reservation. No message was sent for cancelation and it caused a lot of troubles and grief to all involved."
Pros: "Good space for economy class"
Cons: "Announce duty free on flight is closing soon so if interested to purchase last min pls check with crew...by the time you get hold of crew I find out it’s closed - all in 5 mins, from the time I saw message and spoke with crew member it was shut. Should give a little more time on announcements, enough to get a crew member and see products to purchase."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They recently started charging unnecessary excess fees for overweight. I traveled from Seattle to Hyderabad via Dubai. I carried my cabin bag from Seattle with weight of 9kgs and purchased few duty free items of 2kgs(2 liquor bottles and1 dates box). They have asked me to pay $150 for excess weight. One passenger traveled from Houston with a bag of 11kgs. Items include 1 laptop documents and tablet. She didn't shop in Dubai. She was allowed in Houston but was charged $100 in Dubai for same weight."
Pros: "The planes are always beautiful, clean and atmospheric. The staff is always polite and friendly, and well put together. Never have I ever had a bad experience with Emirates."
Pros: "Excellent"
Pros: "Just the screen with full information of flight"
Cons: "I don't the flight because it was connected flight so it was very bad service and not comfort for seating and when I try to parent the online boarding mine is issued my wife cannot issued because there online technical problem"
Pros: "Food is terrible. Not what it used to be. Don't keep the bathrooms clean as they used to. Service just isn't as great as it used to be sadly. Entertainment is great tho!"
Pros: "Service is phenomenal, comfort of the seats and in flight entertainment was fab."
Cons: "Food was mediocre, but then again haven't ever had a wonderful meal on an aeroplane before!"
Pros: "Vego food was provided Lots of meals"
Cons: "Some of the food wasn't as tasty but it's airplane food"
Cons: "Significant delay in Dubai. Food vouchers handed out while change of plane which made it like feeding time at the zoo. Late boarding on new time. Food service was 6+ hours after the vouchers were handed out. Crew spent more time socializing with each other than servicing the passengers."
Pros: "Cabin crew, very professional"
Pros: "food was ok service was excellent fiji airways good Emirates nice girls and good service"
Cons: "we did not like the long wait at Dubai 9 hours in airport is very painful i think that 9 hours wait took most of our energies ."
Pros: "Every thing was ok.but not excellent"
Cons: "Specially for getting down from the plane we had to use stairs that is not good specially for senior citizens."
Pros: "Quick online check-in and bag drop-off at the airport. Friendly cabin crew. Juices etc. offered in between meal/snacks"
Cons: "Delayed take-off from Singapore once we had boarded-an hour just waiting to taxi. Delayed landing at Dubai due to volume of air traffic. This meant a very quick transfer to the London flight and no helpful assistance from cabin crew even though I asked for assistance, I had to hail a buggy down at the airport otherwise we would not have made it to our flight as I would not have been able to walk that far in the time available. If the flight had landed on time then there would not have been a problem."
Pros: "Food better than average"
Cons: "Poorly designed economy seat. Unusable wifi."
Pros: "Staff Seats Food Cleanliness Good destinations"
Cons: "Boarding process is retarded. They do way too much, too many steps, too many checkpoints, stairs, hallways, people checking tix. Too much tea and not bringing the customer what they've asked for."
Pros: "Probably the loveliest airline in the sky today"
Pros: "The staff was very friendly"
Cons: "food choices and entertainment options could be better"
Pros: "Did not get drinks at all until dinner was erred which was over 2 hours into the journey. May have been ok if I hadn't just run from a late arriving connection to make this leg of my flight and I was so thirsty!! Naturally they were out of what would have liked for my meal. However the worst part is that Mt luggage didn't make it to Heathrow with my flight and the service in trying to get my bags back has been shocking. Considering I was told my bags would be arriving in London 2 hours later I still do not have my bage in my possession- a day and a half later. And trying to get to talk to someone to help. This has been so frustrating and disappointing."
Cons: "Disorganized boarding process. Old plane. Bad inflight system with old fashioned screens with poor visibility."
Pros: "Crew is very accommodating and nice. Boarding is smooth."
Cons: "Food is horrible and the plane is unclean. Bathrooms need to be cleaned often on a 15 hour flight."
Cons: "My bag was lost and I was one of the many. Logistics at Heathrow were poorly executed to help people. It seems like they knew of the problem beforehand and didn't inform people effectively. I waited longer than necessary until I overheard that a lot of luggage didn't make it. I felt if they knew of the problem they should have gotten more people to help passengers and update them."
Cons: "Very quiet pleasant atmosphere on board, lovely staff, great food, all in all a pleasant experience"

Qantas has really slipped. Horrible breakfast box, staff were trying but the culture is poor and flights were delayed 3 times during the day.

Air New Zealand leave Qantas for dead

No cleaners available Luggage screwed up Entertainment not working Only 1 toilet for full capacity economy class Other locked off Over an hour late arrival

Departed and arrived late, breakfast meal missed as fridge broke.

Check in . Should be at least one staff member on duty at Melbourne airport at all times. Check in should begin earlier than 4 hours before take off . The check in staff should not be laughing and joking setting up check in desks as hundreds of people are already cued . They should begin check in as soon as set up

Cons: "It’s ridiculous that Cheaptickets (your contracted agent) did not answer the phone to change flights. And when they did answer the phone, charged extortionate change fees above and beyond Qantas fees even during the coronavirus pandemic."
Pros: "Pretty much self serving at the back of the plane ( like it)"
Cons: "Those seats were not comfortable; each row was too narrow, felt like a Sardine fish packed in the can. After back home, swear not fly with Qantas again."
Pros: "Clean, roomy and peaceful flight"
Cons: "Not being 20min late and having NO ground announcement about the delay and impact on connecting flights. When I suggest to a staff member that perhaps they should keep customers informed, they said they couldn’t because they didn’t know. They helpfully suggested I google for information! Seriously!"
Pros: "Love qantas airways! Such a great and safe airline."
Pros: "Crew were super helpful. Have flown with other airlines, but have to say Qantas crews are very professional and helpful. They go that extra mile."
Pros: "Good crew, efficient and pleasant"
Cons: "1. The entertainment system had good choice, but screen resolution wasn't as good as recent flights with Lufthansa, SIA, Malaysia Airlines and AirNZ 2. Nowhere near enough toilets in the middle of the cabin, had to queue over 20 minutes 3. The announcement said water refill stations - where?"
Pros: "The departure was on time and arrival before time. The comfortable headphone The menu with possibility choose a dish before hand."
Cons: "Passport control in San Francisco took a very long time."
Pros: "Crew were great"
Cons: "Not enough toilets - always a queue. More leg room."
Pros: "Food and comfort of the seat"
Cons: "The USB charger, the whole entertainment, anything on the remote including light control and bell, stopped working! I wasn't given enough attention, i had to chase the crew a few times, it was a 14 hour flight with nothing working, miserable experience. I was offered a window seat, which i hate, without considering to give me an upgrade. I was given 5,000 Qantas points, i don't know if they can be moved to my AVIOS."
Pros: "Entertainment and check in staff."
Cons: "Wasn’t able to check in on line. Was asked to pay for seat request on return flight. Passenger put seats as far as can go bashing into my knees (and I am average height. Not very tall), both 15-16 hour flights. It was awful and crew only insist chair is raised slightly for meals. none of my flights since joining frequent flyer were honoured scoring “0” points for flights from/back to US. Back to Delta I guess"
Cons: "Took forever to disembark from plane"
Pros: "The flight was fast, crew was awesome and overall was awesome"
Cons: "My kayak app wasn’t updated to the correct flight time so they had to put me on the last flight to Melbourne that would make it. Thankfully quantas is awesome and got it done."
Pros: "The Qantas lounge in Singapore is very nice. Nothing special relative to some others like Cathay, but lots of showers and good food are the key for a stopover, and the Qantas Lounge has that. The meal options are better out of Singapore than coming in to Singapore, The "order ahead" breakfast concept, where you place your order for breakfast when you board has it pros and cons. The personal service is nice, but one needs to know almost 12 hours ahead of time what they feel like eating. Overall a positive, but for me, it's hard for me to anticipate my appetite. It was my first A380 flight (together with the Sydney - Singapore leg), 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."
Cons: "Mostly an issue with security, two separate very long lines. The lines are marked priority and economy, but those are not adhered to. The seats in business class are not very comfortable. I feel like I had more comfortable seats 15 years ago on BA, and the world has come a long way since then. The planned upgrades are sorely needed."
Pros: "Entertainment Options"
Cons: "Confusion in boarding"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, good food choices, great service."
Pros: "Excellent service and helpful staff."
Cons: "Some seats including mine did not recline, looked like the engineering service have missed checking mechanisms."
Pros: "Excellent value for money, great food which is normally a no no for me, Charming and attentive cabin crew service, making a journey enjoyable !"
Pros: "Staff were friendly."
Cons: "A tiny pla? A bumpy flight. You should get the heads up about such small planes."
Cons: "They only offered pretzels."
Pros: "Staff were friendly but emeriates offer a much better overall service"
Cons: "Long wait times onew calling quantas customer service"
Pros: "All the services"
Pros: "Mobile checkin, e-boarding pass, straight to the gate!"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "Cabin crew is friendly. No reschedules or gate changes. Pretty straight forward to catch a plane."
Cons: "First off the planes I flew on were noticeably old."
Pros: "Great at all."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Fantastic service"
Cons: "Boarding gate was like queuing for a sporting event"
Pros: "The crew was pleasantly pleasent when passengers make mistakes but firm as need, thus getting what needed done as pleasantly as possible."
Cons: "Entertainment system was stuck and stay stuck on kids program and system had no way to get back to main entry point. Software programmers had either failed to put in a "home" icon / link on the Kids home page. Also, turning system off, and leaving it off for 3+ minutes did not do so either; this likely a failure of software designers to specific such or system itself not functioning per design."
Pros: "Snack and Qantas Entertainment app"
Cons: "Nil"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly, cabin crew were friendly and helpful. Food was tasty, but portion rather small."
Cons: "Didn't like that every time someone nearby used the entertainment - watched a film I think, my film changed."
Pros: "Food was better than expected, recommend qantas to others based on this alone"
Cons: "Qantas safety video was to long... painful to watch. i would love ro see airlines start recycling the waste generated in fliht"
Pros: "Great selection of entertainment. Good pillows."
Cons: "I had a flight Auckland-London, booked through Emirates but operated by Qantas. The flight got to London with a delay of 2 hours 20 min, because they made us wait 2 hours 20 min more than planned in Dubai, where incidentally all the other Emirates flights had no delay, only our Qantas one. This made me lose my next flight (to Luxembourg) and have to pay for a new flight and stay that night in London. Since I had booked them separately, no one helped or offered any compensation."
Pros: "Loved the hot chocolate and chocolate."
Cons: "No choices available for dinner and other snacks not very good."
Pros: "Excellent service but surprised that the entertainment system was a bit old and the food tried to be too fancy but the quality was lacking."
Pros: "It was a short flight from Wellington to Sydney. There was no food served but beverages and snack."
Cons: "Not much I didn't like"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything, my flight was delayed as a result of a mechanical problem. This resulted in missing my connecting flight. To make the story extremely short, qantas was not helpful or forthcoming with information regarding a way to get to my final destination. This left my wife and I stranded in a different countries airport for hours."
Cons: "Didn't bother to offer acting other than fruit juice, water and tea or coffee with the meal seemed in a hurry to get the meal service over"
Pros: "First time I flew Qantas and it was a flight from Melb- Dubai and then Dubai - London. I sat in row 62 and the food three times the food selection had run out the fruits and beef curry. I wasn't able to check in online which was quite annoying. The crew from Melb-Dubai were fantastic. So friendly and talkative and I think one was called Jordan."
Pros: "The flight crew were friendly, the flight left on time, food good and cabin clean."
Cons: "Had a jumpy screen for a while and the headsets were a bit sensitive with the sound dropping on and off. The controls were on the top of the arm rest which my husband kept accidentally knocking. Changing channels, turning up the volume etc."
Pros: "Great staff, overall comfortable for a long flight."
Cons: "Our vegetarian meals were bland and repetitive; dinner and breakfast pretty much identical. We received little processed fruit cups both meals, while the others had a nice fresh fruit entree."
Pros: "Crew was great. A380 was great"
Cons: "Flight delayed (mechanical problems) again. Twice in two years. This caused us to miss our connecting flight from LA to Austin and wait 4 hours."
Pros: "Crew was very professional. Entertainment was good. Pillows and blankets were availanle when we arrived."
Cons: "We were sporadicaly with water and ice from above. The arm rests were uncomfortable and some were broken. Food was only so so and for international flyers, the menu was not able to be fully understood."
Pros: "Fog prevented the plane we where to fly out on from landing however planes from other airlines where landing. This lead to a 6 hour delay."
Pros: "They still serve free food and beverages, even on cross country flights. There were plenty of movie choices to keep us occupied."
Pros: "Prompt and efficient with helpful informative checkin (warned that luggage would probably need to be cleared and rechecked in Sydney). Reasonable choice of snacks (inc. crisps that were I think GF - same as in lounge)."
Cons: "BA (FF) lounge facilities at Tegel are pretty limited, but some reasonable snack choices (crisps, fruit, biscuits, ...)"
Pros: "The overall fought was great. The crew was amazing, especially since they had been up since at least midnight to get everything ready for us. They were cheerful and extremely kind."
Cons: "The only reason the food is not ranked lower is the great wrap we had when we boarded. But, the breakfast was just awful. To be fair, I have never had breakfast on a plane that I have enjoyed. But, word to the wise, skip the eggs and always go for the fruit!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight cancelled, not told"
Pros: "Crew are always top notch, free drinks are readily available and entertainment system is great."
Cons: "The food portions and quality have definitely declined over the years sadly, as carriers cut costs no doubt."
Pros: "Amazing"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Amazing crew, excellent drinks and decent food. Very comfortable seat"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Crew was great !!!"
Cons: "Seating in upper class is uncomfortable and bedding is not fresh."
Pros: "The seating in upper class is unconventional and uncomfortable."
Cons: "Reconfigure seating in upper class. We will no longer be customers for that reason alone.."
Pros: "Although there were delays they kept us informed on a regular basis as to what to expect and seemed genuinely apologetic for any inconveniences. Boarding and deplaning were smooth and efficient. I really appreciated that there was no charge for checking a bag. I am certain that contributes to the ease of everyone getting on and off the plane. Our bags arrived at baggage claim about the same time we got there. I would definitely fly with Virgin Atlantic again."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "They have to uptade the airplanes"
Pros: "The flight itself was good! The one from London to Delhi was better than from JFK to London"
Cons: "I wasn’t told about my baggage were being delivered through different airlines the other day!"
Pros: "The airplane was quiet My seat did not recline, but was seated in a different place where the seat reclined Bathrooms were clean and plenty"
Cons: "The remote controls for the entertainment system That you can’t reach the vents when you have to be buckled"
Pros: "- Presence of entire box sets of some TV shows was a nice touch that I made good use of."
Cons: "- EVERY damn movie is prefaced by 4 minutes of ads. - The touchscreens (at least in economy) are slow resistive screens that are horrible for fine control gestures (like slightly changing the volume or position)"
Pros: "Staff. Very couteous.polite. friendly."
Cons: "Good.entertainment choices."
Pros: "The ground staff was on top of it and the boarding process was smooth, but the cabin crew was brilliant. I’ve never had such pleasant service on a western airline. Well done. Entertainment system is top-notch, and the food was acceptable."
Cons: "The booking process and paying for luggage is disappointing. Plus, I paid a $90 upgrade and just moved up two rows in the same section. Sneaky."
Pros: "Crew were great"
Cons: "Uncomfortable to sit for eight hours"
Pros: "I thought the airline amenities were excellent and it was a seamless process getting on the flight. The flight attendants were very warm and accommodating. I felt immediately welcome as soon as I got on the flight. I liked that they were playful with my son and engaged him."
Cons: "Nothing. We did leave a piece of luggage on the plane so hoping that things turn out okay."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything incl customer service at the airport"
Pros: "2 bags each 23 kilogram each total 46"
Cons: "Coffee. I don't know what it was but the worst coffee I have ever had and I tried it 3 times"
Pros: "Fast boarding and nice staff. Food selection was ok"
Cons: "One item missing from menu (unavailable). Issues with entertainment system. Bathrooms lacked moisturiser which is always very helpful on long flights where the air is dry"
Cons: "Staff was not concerned about anything, vague and uncaring..this was my son flying across the Atlantic idiots!! One pissed mom!!!"
Pros: "The crew and food were excellent. A little more space between seats would be appreciated. The entertainment equipment was not intuitive or easy to operate. I still feel the airline did a great job getting us to London on-time and a pleasant flight."
Cons: "I had to be rebooked on a later flight due to weather in London; this was obviously not the airline's fault. Because I took a later flight I missed my connection in London."
Pros: "love the lounge and easy check in and boarding, great attendants and smooth trip"
Cons: "would be nice if lounge was open earlier - arrived for 8:30am flight and had to wait around in freezing cold terminal with no coffee for an hour"
Pros: "Flew virgin after long time and kind of disappointment with comfortable seats. seats space is tight and legs space as well with some box under the seat."
Cons: "seat comfortable and let space"
Pros: "Francesca was the flight attende t that I had most the most interactions with was very friendly and warm."
Pros: "Safety. Service."
Cons: "Lavatory was icky and other passengers messy."
Cons: "Food was hard and little stale."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled ."
Pros: "The crew was the best part of my experience, super nice and accomodating"
Cons: "the wifi had subpar performance"
Pros: "No one would update that the flight was delayed. They would not even communicate as to why delayed and would not put us in a different flight. Absolutely no customer service. Disappointed and would not fly jet airways again . I missed my conference lecture today as I was late."
Cons: "No communication, nor will they tell you why it's late . Nor will they move you to another flight even wen requested"
Pros: "My first time flying to Europe! I love the service from the attendants but my seat mate made it uncomfortable to seat in my seat. Overall great experience"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "My economy window seat was just too cramped for a big guy on a nine hour flight"
Pros: "I felt that they were very thoughtful about the fact that it was a long flight. We got two small meals, which was perfect, and even a little gift bag with a sleep mask and toothbrush and such in it. These were just a couple of the many nice touches included in the flight."
Cons: "Very small quibble: the screen resolution, or maybe the contrast, of the personal video players was not so great. This was fine in most cases, but it meant I could not watch videos that had subtitles. Not a big deal but possibly worth fixing. Thanks"
Pros: "The flight was late but the pilots made up most of the time"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "first time I flew VirginAtlantic. Heard so many good things about it. It fact even our Uber driver was praising the airline on our way to the airport. But once onboard: - poor food (I mean 'survival kit' style) - entertainment station was not working - games feel like 20 years old - design (heavy red) now looks dated and suffocating - hostesses are more focused on their hairstyle than their customers"
Cons: "Back to Air France next time!"
Pros: "Safe flight, good crew"
Cons: "Food quality was poor."
Pros: "nice new seats"
Cons: "The entre food top was torn, apparently opened before I got it, also there was no salad dressing. ATTN RICHARD BRANSON: Are you concerned for our environment? The head stewardess would not refill my sports water bottle after I asked her nicely, instead she poured water into a cup which she threw away, wasting plastic unnecessarily. I told her I did not like wasting plastic and she appeared to not enjoy what I had to say. This was the same lady who handed me my dinner. Rest of crew was great."
Pros: "From check in to landing in London, the gracious, helpful crew impressed us with their attitude and service"
Cons: "Sound didn't work on some of the entertainment choices"
Pros: "Nothing - except the toilets with tabs for lifting the seat & adjustable headrest. They forgot to load our toiletries overnight pack too!"
Cons: "The 787 has vastly inadequate Economy toilets - ONLY 4! For 200 passengers. Inadequate lighting for,boarding, unable to activate reading lights until AFTER TAKEOFF = groping in semi darkness, BAD! No window blinds = woken up by blazing sun in middle of 11 hr night flight, even with sleeping pills my sleep was wrecked, even with eyemask. Passengers penned in on narrow aisles by trolleys, unable to walk around plane & risk of DVT. Passengers disempowered by restricted space, lighting, mobility. I want more control over my personal mobility &, lighting. Horrible headsets (bring my own). This flight departed 2.5 HRs LATE from JHB & the crew & cavin service was SLOW. NO requested second cup of tea brought - I waited 20 mins & climbed over trolleys to get another one, even though it was requested of cabin crew. Do they just ignore us? Or forget?"
Pros: "airline staff was helpful, friendly and accommodating from ticket check in to flight staff."
Pros: "They were were very kind and helpful to all passengers"
Pros: "Very good on board services and nice crew"
Cons: "At boarding in Atlanta, they only checked in 1 of my 3 luggages to my final destination, the 2 others are lost..."
Pros: "The space you have with your legs is sufficient and the chairs are very comfortable. The food was really nice. I enjoyed the trip, although it was a long one."
Pros: "Everything was great ! The staff very nice and the plane is absolutely amazing .."
Cons: "We paid for extra leg but there was no difference between normal and extra .."
Pros: "Mostly everything was fine."
Cons: "Not really anything particularly that I didn't like."
Pros: "Professionalism value of service"
Cons: "let me think...."
Pros: "It arrived on time"
Cons: "The most miserable 10 hours of my year, so far. Sat in economy. Small seats. Uncomfortable seats. Design of headrest made comfort an impossibility."
Pros: "There were lots of choices of movies. The flight was only half full, so I got two seats together to stretch out."
Cons: "The cups for water and juice were very small."
Pros: "Very attentive and friendly crew! The plane was nice and clean, nice purple tinted lights. They served us plenty of complementary meals, snacks, mints and drinks. The in flight entertainment was the best I've seen yet: movies, tv, music, games, all recent and easy to use. We will definitely fly Virgin Atlantic again!"
Pros: "The meals were very small and not very tasty. Economy appears to have lost staff as it takes the entire flight to get a drink and dinner, the feeling you get is that you should just get on board and then sit quietly for 7 hours and not ask for anything. The entertainment does not have a very large selection and if you fly regularly does not seem to update very often."
Pros: "The ground staff at Delhi was very helpful in giving us a new flight ticket for the next day for free eventhough they maintained that it was actually Air India's responsibility."
