Pressing my 'attendant button' my light was lit for 10 minutes before a crew member noticed. My first trip on Singapore, my expectations were not met. Shame"

Pros: "Everything else was good besides the below content."

Pressed the cabin crew call button and took over 15 mins for someone to respond (and only after I caught someone's attention walking past - for the second time, the first person took my request then never reappeared). This despite at least 8 crew members walking past me."
Pros: "La amabilidad de la tripulación, que sí el menú es completamente vegetariano. No como otras aerolíneas que te ponen manteca, leche para el café..."
Cons: "Todas las veces me cae muy, pero muy mal. Cuando llegó el momento del té o café, me dieron sal en vez de edulcorante. Demasiado condimento. No es comida para un vuelo, es difícil de digerir. Hasta produce síntomas de indigestión."

Pros: "Economy seats still comfortable"
Pros: "Amenities and food, customer service."

Cons: "seat space was tight. it was hard to get comfortable"
Pros: "The flight departed and arrived on time."
Cons: "The plane was not the same plane I booked travel on. They changed it, so if it’s the 777 then it is basically widebody short haul seating in business, with a lay flat price! The seats are old and don’t work well. This has been an issue on all the flights I’ve taken between Tokyo and HKG."
Pros: "Comfortable seats in Premium Economy."
Cons: "Seat didn’t recline but moved to a vacant one to sleep. USB charging points didn’t charge my iPad."

Pros: "Service and plane"
Pros: "The overall service is great for the airfare price I paid. Can’t complaint! The new plane with central air control was a great idea; it was comfortable for the duration of the ride. That being said, I would definitely use Cathay Pacific again in the future for this price range."
Cons: "The wait time to take off was WAY too long. Luckily the entertainment was available right away on the screen."
Pros: "I thought the service on this flight was much better this time around; at least from where I was sitting. The attendants seemed to come around more often and there was a much better food selection for everyone involved. Overall, I found the flight to be safe, mostly comfortable, and the food was excellent."
Cons: "I had a family sitting next to me (I was in the aisle) and I felt that while the attendants were courteous and prompt in accommodating me, they all but ignored the people in the middle seats. I had to keep asking them on the attendant's behalf if they needed anything before they rushed on by. At one point the father told me that he was getting better service from me than the attendants. Also, one of the TV screens didn't work in one of the middle seats so the family had to do a switcharoo with their little one after they got settled so their son could have the working screen. I personally found that it was very difficult to recline my seat - I really had to quite literally put my back into it to get it to click into the reclining position."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and effective. The flight was on time. The seat was comfortable in economy"
Cons: "Food was average. I wish the snacks could incorporate some Hong Kong specialities."

Cons: "More choices in food and more leg room or ability to put legs up, had very swollen feet!"
Pros: "Boeing 777 had an upgrade on the video display software, making for a more manageable video experience. It's easier to navigate because of the ability to close screens and go back to the screen you were on, rather than having to start over each time."
Cons: "I received a polite e-mail and a text message an hour or two later indicating that my flight from Taipei to HongKong had been delayed. It took a login to the Cathay Pacific web site to figure out that with the rescheduled time, I would miss my connecting flight from HongKong to Boston if I didn't change anything. I managed to sort it out, though it took using my cell phone to place an international call to the HongKong Cathay Pacific office to get me on an earlier flight. I don't think this is an acceptable level of service -- had I not had WiFi access or an international capable cell phone, I would have been stranded in Taipei or HongKong an extra day. I think CP could have done more to notify and help remediate the situation knowing the implication of the rescheduled flight. Food also remains mediocre, though slightly better."
Cons: "Landed in JFK instead of JFK because of flight delay to hongkong"
Pros: "Comfortable. Good service. No wait for restroom"

Offered to rebook 10hr later with 40 HK food credit. Happened to my uncle and cousins 1 month earlier on exact same legs. Would not recommend any layover with this airline in hong Kong for less than an hour. Numerous phone calls from me to sort this out, which resulted on another carrier to Hanoi."
Cons: "I requested special meal It wasn’t good and I got the food poison which make me sick."
Pros: "Mostly the amazing staff on the airplane... I'm pregnant and the staff at JFK were very unpleasant and rude."

Cons: "Plane not clean"
Pros: "The movie"
Cons: "More than 1 hr delay. I had ordered kosher food. They came to show it but it never appeared later. I complained and they broight it: the starter was frozen solid. Eventually i had a fish plate. Not too bad..."

The captain was very pleasant during his in-flight announcements; complete and thorough. The bathrooms were quite clean."
Pros: "Friendly staff and helped me."
Pros: "Great seat. Flew from Hong Kong to Manchester and had a good 7 hour sleep. Food, especially breakfast was amazing with a dim sum selection. Crew was fantastic as always."
Cons: "Dinner however was a little lackluster with a prawn and crab meat stir fry which was a little bland."
Pros: "They have nice blankets"
Cons: "The seats were hard to move."
Cons: "bring back Me Before You!"
Cons: "I personally don't like how you can't choose seats until check in. Although the food menu states that noodles and snacks were available upon request, we were turned down several times when we requested. Food served, especially main entree, were barely edible. It was probably the worst airline food I've ever had, and I travel very frequently. When we arrived back at JFK from our trip, it took over 2 hours for our luggage to arrive at baggage claim."
Cons: "The service is kinda slow to respond"
Pros: "again excellent all around,good leg room and elbow room, flight attendance were awesome !!"
Cons: "Blankets were very thin, although clean felt reused. Headphones were poor which meant if Someone in a near seat was talking couldn't hear through my headset despite volume being turned up."
Pros: "Flight attendants were great."
Pros: "This is a new Airbus very similar to Boing 777. All seats in Business class are isle seats. I also needed assistance which was also excellant cutting my time in Hong Kong from 1-1/2 hour to less than 1/2 hour."
Cons: "I fell sick and my doctor advised against flying. Tried calling Swiss Air and JustFly.com: 6 calls back and forth and 7 hours on hold, no help. Finally got advised on driving to the airport to make the flight change at the Swiss Air counter at O’Hare. The representative told me to bring a note from doctor to switch flights. I did the next day. The same representative looked me in the eye after advising the day before and said there’s nothing she could do. Why make an elderly sick person drive to the airport again if you know already you cannot help??Absolutely terrible experience, no help from the airline or travel agency. Total loss of the full price of the ticket."
Pros: "The crew was so friendly"
Cons: "Everything is so smooth in my flight!"

Cons: "Breakfast consisted only of sweet items -- I didn't touch it."
Pros: "The food was great and the crew was very friendly."
Pros: "Crew ignored my existence just because I sat on the window seat, plus I'm an asian, so I'm not sure which of the reason makes her to ignore me for serving my food. Luckily the guy passenger that sit beside me helped me to inform and made sure that she served the food to me."
Cons: "YEA, PLEASE TRAIN YOUR STAFF TO TREAT ALL PASSENGERS EQUALLY, NOT ONLY JUST TO CAUCASIAN, OTHER RACE AND ETHNIC ALSO DESERVE EQUALLY RESPECT AND TREATMENT. THANKS. SERVICE IS GOOD BUT ATTITUDE OF STAFFS ARE JUST MEH."

Cons: "It’s a small thing, but it’d be nice to have more variety of movies to choose from."
Pros: "Punctual modern aircraft."
Cons: "The onky bad thing was luggage collection. Belt 6 tucked away. The luggage was so quick coming off that there was no-one to collect it . The belt was soon full and no.more luggage could enter the belt until the luggage on the belt was claimed"
Cons: "I asked the Chinese flight attendant in economy to please ask the man in front of me to put his seat up since the captain and purser had already asked us to do so in three languages The man in front of me refused to do so. She said she was going to start at the front of the plane and let him leave his seat back making it difficult to see my tv monitor. I thought that she should’ve said that it was time to put your seat up. It was frustrating that she didn’t support me and the request of the captain. Your seats are very uncomfortable upright when the person in front of you has their seat back."

Cons: "The aircraft was horrible No space at all even after paying for a better seat"

Pros: "The Boeing 777-300ER is ether new and clean."
Cons: "Seating was super tight. Once the person in front of me declined their seat the screen of the inflight entertainment system was right in front of my nose (no, my nose is not particularly long). I’ll consider flying Lufthansa or United next time - even if It required a stopover in Frankfurt or Munich."
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."

Cons: "No seat entertainment."
Cons: "Seats were a little uncomfortable, not the leg room but they just felt a little worn down and tilting forward"

Cons: "Video screens didn't work. Seats were terrible and some broken. Flight crew was useless."
Cons: "There was a supposed difficulty with my entry in Europe when I tried to Check into Chicago. I thought that I had to cancel my flight. Swiss air representatives had to do much consultation, which took nearly an hour, while I was standing there the whole time. At the end, I was thanked for my patience and told all should be well and not even given a small upgrade for the distress this caused me. Traveling is disagreeable in general now, and personally, even moreso after this episode."
Pros: "Good service, efficient, professional"
Cons: "Delayed 4 hours at airport with no explanation why and little compensation for the experience."
Cons: "There is no question about check-in?? My ticket, booked through Kayak, did not state that no baggage is included. The Swiss air just said I should have picked it up from the booking and forced me to pay Euro 30, which I will claim back from Kayak. This is gross misrepresentation and on the same ticket flying a luggage was included."
Pros: "Professional Staff; best food on international flight ever."
Cons: "Missed my fight, not by my Folt(big accident on highway 80) .. Paid 400$ fee for next connecting flight, but first they told me I have to buy new ticket. My laguage was shipped only to Zurich, but destination was Vienna.. so they didn't let me on connecting flight.. It took another 3hours dealing with people from Swiss airlines(great service"

Cons: "nothing to report since I slept!"
Pros: "I was offered several snacks throughout the flight, which helped to pass the time and gave me the opportunity to drink water, which helps a lot."

Cons: "Check in with British at LHR very bad and slow"
Pros: "Nothing! Absolutely nothing!"
Cons: "My flight Paris/London/Manchester?Chicago was the mos impleasant experience I ever had. On July the flight was schedule for 9...pm then delayed for two hours because of a fire, other passengers said, in London. At around 11pm, we were asked to line up for boarding. We stayed on line for an hour and fnally to be told the flight was cancelled. We were treated less than animals by British Airway. No ACCOMODATION!!!!!!!! No ACCOMODATION!!!!!!! We slept on benches at the airport. To be fair to you, I will not recommend British Airway to anyone."
Pros: "The boarding agent did not allow my traveling companion on Till the very last moment because of the size of his backpack. He this was our seventh plane ride in two weeks and nobody else has given us a problem.. After 10 days on the Camino DeSantiago the extra stress was not welcome.. Also short trip with the no there for each service was disappointing. Didn’t see a whole lot of the crew. It was if they were taking a break the entire time."
Cons: "The amount of carry-on and size should not have been an issue with backpacks. They fit perfectly into the overhead compartments. Plus a snack and beverage service would have been nice"
Pros: "Nice variety of movies to watch on personal screen. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Food too spicy and not British enough. Button on chair broken so unable to recline even a little on long flight. Luggage not transferred to final destination...stayed in London"
Pros: "Almost nothing on this flight."
Cons: "Boarded on time then 40 minute delay before take off. After we landed the plane came to a sudden stop and the Captain told us the lights to guide us to the appropriate place were not working this was a long delay. When we got to the disembarking area we had another long wait and the reason was due to the bridge not working,eventually we went out the back of the plane. The most unbelievable problem was the announcement just before take off that both rear toilets were out of action,since the flight was late this was an issue and I do not believe that both toilets could be broken more likely that there was no person available to clean them."
Pros: "Had to deboard onto the tarmac via a set of stairs as the connecting ramp was not working. A little difficult for me due to mobility issues. However, the crew voluntarily saw me struggling and took down my suitcase, very nice!"
Pros: "The fact that the flight was short and not full. Crew were pleasant and business like"
Cons: "There was nothing to not like"
Pros: "Surprised that the food was delicious"
Cons: "Obtaining the boarding pass at Heathrow took time"
Pros: "My eight year old grandson was tired and felt sick. The airline crew was sympathetic and very helpful in trying to help him and the rest of the family cope. They were responsive to every request and even made an extra seat available for him near the restroom."
Cons: "The seats are way too small. Very uncomfortable. Why make the seats recline when there is no room behind them? When the person in front of me reclined his seat my tray wouldn't even unfold."
Pros: "Quick boarding!"
Cons: "Snack trolley didn't reach the back seats due to the shortness of the flight. The only entertainment was an in flight magazine!"

Cons: "Very slow baggage pickup at the airport."
Cons: "Missed connection due to delays on previous flight"

Pros: "What you expect on commuter hop, no problems."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Got me there"
Pros: "BA couldn't get our boarding passes to work no matter how many times they printed out new ones and we had to land into proper arrivals (though we were in transit in Heathrow) and tell five different groups of staff what was going on, even though it wasn't our problem but their computer glitch. One man at security was even rude to me, telling me not to just stand there. ( I had been told to stand there whilst they went and tried to remedy for the umpteenth time). When I showed him my disabled badge and said I would personally prefer NOT to be left standing for hours, he said 'so?'. It was a nightmare. It took hours and still wasn't sorted and in the end the immigration officers had to be called to the boarding area to allow us on the flight with non functioning boarding cards. It wasn't even our fault. REally upset about it."
Pros: "The staff are friendly and cheerful. No food or entertainment for the short donestic flight (as would be expected anywhere for a 50 min flight)"
Cons: "Boarding badly organised ... signs telling you where to queue are double sided and depending which side you see first direct you into the wrong lane... Left a bit late but arrived pretty much on time. Baggage didn't arrive after a 2 hour transfer and this is the third time in four times over the past few years. I strongly do not recommend BA as a domestic UK connection after an international arrival."
Pros: "Pleasant flight crew"
Pros: "Comfortable night, pleasant crew. The food was pretty good, and the flight attendants were attentive. I didn't have to ask for refills on drinks, etc. They also seem to get along well with each other, which makes for more relaxing trip."
Pros: "There was someone from BA who met me when I landed in London who gave me instructions for getting to Terminal 5. Without him, I never would have made it."
Cons: "The process of getting from Terminal 3 to Terminal 5 was tedious and time-comsuming. I barely made my connecting flight."
Cons: "The drop down food trays were dirty and we had to ask an assistant to clean them. The light refreshments were served late - we were landing just as they were handing out the drinks."
Pros: "smooth flight"
Cons: "not a lot of leg room. Took a while to board."
Cons: "It was extremely hot on the plane. for the first 30 minutes there was no ac available and there was little to no help from the staff. I asked for water to cool myself down and ov waited about ten minutes to get it after hitting my help button multiple times. The flight attendants may have been overwhelmed with the requests as there were many just like me who struggled so they came off very rude. The plane was also not updated at all - not personal entertainment and once again, no ac/air for people to control."
