Pros: "The whole business class experience"
Cons: "During the same trip I discovered 2 different arrangements of the Business Class cabin on Singapore Airlines A350, SQ469 CMB-SIN, and SQ036 SIN-LAX. On the SQ469, I occupied seat 12 A (mono, aisle-window): A lot of plastic curved walls etc. For larger persons, the result is not quit comfortable."

Pros: "Plane was super clean and comfortable. A long flight but we'll cared for by host."

Pros: "The crew professional and friendly"
Cons: "The food was rather bland and did not live up to my expectations"

Pros: "The crew is usually really good."
Cons: "The ground staff at Frankfurt airport was not very good. Seemed slow lazy and difficult at times"

Pros: "Good food. Friendly staff efficient airports."
Cons: "Confusion at check in on baggage constrains. Conflict between what the agent told us and what was documented on our ticket contract. Plane very cold Unable to recline seats for much of the flight under guidance of flight attendants. Unable to sleep as a result."

Pros: "Crew will do anything to help"
Cons: "I was on a nut free diet However they still gave me a ice cream covered in macadamia nuts. Nut free meals were also gluten, vegan etc so very bland"

Pros: "One of the best seating I have ever had. Compared to Emirates the seat was spacious."
Cons: "Food was good but was not full compared to emirates."

Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "None"

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."

Cons: "The layover in Singapore was a nightmare with insufficient hotel accommodation, nothing but Asian food and overly officious security staff."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Short and sweet. Flight left on time and landed about 15 mins early. Crew was wonderful"

Pros: "Quick boarding. Great entertainment system Good staff"
Cons: "Not comfortable seats"

Pros: "Boarding was better handled in Singapore - but then that’s Singapore! All very smooth and French champagne served on the flight all the way home! The Kayak website is excellent and I wouldn’t hesitate to use it again - $1,000 cheaper for the flight from Moscow to Singapore than what I could get direct from Singapore Airlines! Well done Kayak!"

Cons: "Older plane not so comfortable for a long flight. Movies, not much choice and far away from seat."

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."

Cons: "Boarding didn’t give priority to passengers with children"

Pros: "Spacious and comfortable bed."
Cons: "The food wasn't that great. Average at best."

Cons: "The desserts. The bun."

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: "Very attentive, great food, quality aircraft"

Cons: "I Booked a flight that stated that it only had one stop in singapore, then direct to SFO after arriving in singapore i was told that i had to go to a transfer counter, that there was a problem with my ticket. after arriving at the transfer counter they took my boarding pass for my dircet flight to SFO, & told me that i now had a stop in hong kong, that the direct flight to SFO was over booked!! this is not right i wouldn't of booked this flight if they had been truthfull about the extra stop. i will never use singapore airline or kayak again!!!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I took the 777 on my flight to Perth and the seats are so so different from the ones on A330. Don't bother with Business class if you are flying the A330. It's not worth the money."

Cons: "I am a vegetarian and they served a chicken piece along with my main course."

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 ."

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."

Pros: "Liked the service"
Cons: "Nothing special."

Pros: "The flight was carried out by Lufthansa. The staff was very polite and helpful."

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: "Ontime, airline stewards were excellent and tv entertainment very good"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The crew of ladies and men where so very gracious and courtly, both to the passengers and each other. My wife and I both took note that the flight attendants were "First Class" with emphasis on class. Exceptionally well groomed, but also conveyed genuine concern and helpfulness and at the same time, real workers, energetic and perky. We are bragging to all our friends about the uplifting cultural demeanor of Singapore Airlines. They should all get a pay raise. I will always remember their wonderful service when thinking about our trip to Frankfurt, Germany. Robert"

Pros: "Staff are very friendly and good ."

Cons: "My Vegan meal was terrible."

Pros: "Awesome comfort, infotainment, service and food. Was amazed at the value for an economy flight - much better than BA & United in every way."

Pros: "Very friendly crew & modern aircraft"

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: "Crew was very friendly and good service."
Cons: "Crew could have asked the passengers whether they need snacks in between."

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: "Huge selection of movies Towel service, socks, and toothbrush for economy class Snacks included entire chocolate bars! Friendly staff"

Pros: "The staff were very friendly and it was a smooth flight with a great choice of entertainment."
Cons: "However I don't eat pork & they ran out on chicken dishes so I missed out on a meal."

Cons: "cramped uncomfortable seats freezing cold in the plane"

Pros: "As usual, plane is in good shape and crew are well trained. Nothing wrong with all the basics, but Singapore Air has definitely lost its lustre."
Cons: "For heaven's sake, please don't announce a boarding procedure and then not follow it. If you want to have a free-for-all rugby scrum to get on the plane, so be it. But don't announce boarding by rows/groups and then not make even a lame attempt to adhere to it."

Pros: "Crew was attentive and nice."
Cons: "Cabin was beat up and worn out."

Pros: "Exceptional service!"
Cons: "There should always be a vegetarian option on the set menu. I didn't realise I would need to pre order my meal for this."

Pros: "Everything on time."
Cons: "Nothing really bad one food on return flight not great but ok."

Pros: "uncomfortable compared to the other flights"

Pros: "Staff friendly and efficient"

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "nothing"

Cons: "Boarding was hectic and stressful"

"Good food, comfortable seating, excellent service throughout. Professional, yet friendly and nice crew. My first experience with Qatar airlines, I would select Qatar for my future travels and recommend the service to my friends. Thank you."

"Great"

"unfortunately we were unable to travel at this time due to the ongoing Covid situation in Sri Lanka. we hope to go instead in March 2022."

Pros: "We really enjoyed this airline!"

Pros: "Great entertainment choices. Staff friendly and attentive, particularly nice is that they feed children first, and offer small entertainment gifts to them."

Cons: "Boarding by bus at Doha is lengthy and not very comfortable."

Cons: "Quatar is the best"

Cons: "Cancellation of the flight could have done before boarding."

Pros: "Staff were fantastic."
Cons: "Better movies please."

Pros: "Seats are great!"
Cons: "The food options were not that good this time."

Pros: "Not-so-full flight meant we could move about and choose more comfortable seats."
Cons: "TV unit didn’t work, lucky me. They tried two times to restart and reboot but to no avail. The attendant said my choices were to not watch or move to an empty seat. I chose to sit next to my wife."

Pros: "Flight not full, so space to move. Great service"

Pros: "seat space with leg room."

Pros: "The service on our flights was wonderful! Qatar is the best airline that I’ve ever flown on."

Cons: "too hot called groups too fast for boarding"

Pros: "Crew was excellent. Very nice and helpful."
Cons: "Food was terrible. Need a variety. Curry is not for everyone."

Pros: "Very impressed with the service. Very friendly staff"
Cons: "My entertainment unit on the Perth Doha leg never worked even after several resets"

Pros: "Nothing about American Airlines Never ever to travel with it again"
Cons: "Passengers service bad Air hostesses just rude I Don’t even know why someone wants to work When they can’t even smile There were few seats were empty but they were offered to fellow passengers who happens to be different colors Person Then me America airline lost my family business for ever"

Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful. And the food choices were good."

Pros: "I haven't flown with Qatar for several years, but my memories of an exceptional experience were replicated. Fantastic modern aircraft, brilliant crew and great food."
Cons: "Only one minor gripe, the passengers seated behind me talked incessantly, making my attempts to sleep impossible. I asked if there were any ear plugs available, but none could be found. My own fault, I should have packed my own."

Pros: "The airplane seats in economy were comfortable for the very long flights I took with Qatar Airlines. The seats had enough room between the back of the other seat. The seat reclined to a comfortable position. The seat back provided a built in head rest. The TV's in the seats were the largest I have ever seen on a flight in economy. The staff were helpful and great. The food and drinks provided were decent!"

Pros: "Flight crew was quick to provide food and drinks but quality of the food was not as good as Emirates."
Cons: "-carry-on did not fit on center overhead compartment unless I put it side ways, which then takes up space for other passengers. Same carry-on suitcase fit nicely on Emirates airplanes. Basically, carry-on overhead compartments have been made smaller on purpose or by engineering error, and this makes me not want to fly Qatar airlines again. Less food options. I went to the Gally and they only had kitkat bars for food. Emirates offer fruit, sandwiches, and many choices at ALL TIMES of the flight for economy class."

Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "I was not given any option regarding the change of my departure flight from Colombo. Originally it was scheduled for 13th 3.25AM and it was brought forward to 12th night 20.20. This caused inconvenience to me and my family to wait 7 hours for the connecting flight to Johannesburg from Doha. When the flight is changed by airline for their convenience, they would have given preferential treatment to the passengers involved. We had to bare the cost of food and make us comfortable on our own due to the delay in transit."

Pros: "Fast"
Cons: "There were no food choice when the cabin crew reach my seat all run out"

Pros: "Thank you to wonderful hard working Crew."
Cons: "I am a lacto ovo vegitarian. The meal was just vegitarian. I would have like to have an ice cream or a piece of cake."

Cons: "The online check in system was down so we all had to line up to check in."

Pros: "Excellent crew who were warm and attentive. Wide range of entertainment options."
Cons: "Food was disappointing. No western option despite it being a London bound flight."

Cons: "Missed it because my flight from Colombo was delayed by 6 hrs."

Pros: "Qatar is quite possibly the best airline in the world, especially on its long haul flights. It is heads above the other two major Persian Gulf airlines. All the employees with whom I dealt were excellent and customer-oriented. The planes between Doha and London were new, had more space than older planes and had an excellent selection of movies and TV shows. I ordered special meals on all the flights, and I was very satisfied. I have been a fan of Qatar Airways since I flew it to Australia in 2011. It continues to do a superb job, even in Economy."

Pros: "Another B787. Had empty seats next to me."
Cons: "No menus handed out by the crew and little explanation of what the meal was beyond beef and rice or chicken and potato. For some reason they only serve a snack instead of a second meal on this flight."

Pros: "Incredible staff, fast boarding, great entertainment center."
Cons: "Breakfast frittata was like rubber."

Pros: "Left and arrived on time, meals were above expectations."
Cons: "Difficult boarding procedure."

Cons: "Not enough check in desks operating - very long wait"

Pros: "Like the friendly Crew ..."
Cons: "Food"

Cons: "Entertainment system did not work Boarding at Colombo air port is absolutely the worst We have seen. I have traveled a lot. Took 1 hr 30 mins to check in 40 people."

Cons: "Check in crew in Lahore ganged up against me and wanted to extort £200 for taking me laptop on board along with my hand carry. No where in the world has an airline ever asked me for this, and I fly a fair bit. Since I didn't allow them to extort me, they forced me to throw away my brand new Delsey hand carry at the airport. I had no cover as they threatened to if load my luggage and not let me fly home. Not a 5 start airline from any angle. Will never use Qatar again!!! This was my first and last flight with them."

Pros: "The inflight entertainment didnt work at all. Food choice was pathetic."
Cons: "Food and inflight entertainment"

Pros: "Best airline in the sky"

Pros: "boarding was okay"
Cons: "BA operated flight. cannot compete with Qatar Airways, even if the ticket is a Qatar ticket."

Cons: "Missed the connecting flight due to some delay. Had to sleep over for a night. A lot of discomfort. New flight time was very later the next day. Messed up all my bookings and schedule."

Pros: "Lots of leg space, good seats."
Cons: "Food could be better, much better."

Cons: "The flight was delayed from Doha to London. And I lost my bag."

Cons: "I had to have the same food in both flights"

Pros: "The crew are friendly and polite, which mitigates the negative stuff on the right to some extent."
Cons: "It's an older plane on this route, which feels comparatively tired; it has the old lean-back seats, which are a bit less comfortable than the newer lean-back, slide-forward ones. The entertainment system is older, so you lose leg-room in aisle seats, and there is less on offer. And because the flight was completely full, you do feel very restricted (not QR's fault, but a function of narrow seats)."

Pros: "I usually don't need a lot in the flight, just to kill some time. With Qatar, it was easy, your own entertainment screen with a huge selection of content. Plus the seat was very comfortable and wide, a lot of leg space. New aircraft. what more can you ask?"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Not sufficient food, less quantity or quality of food, cramped seat, there was a big guy sitting next to me, unable to even rest my hand"

Pros: "The food was fabulous and plentiful. We also took advantage of the free tour of Doha--a very pleasant way to spend a six-hour layover. Flight attendants were all very attentive and helpful."

Cons: "There was no boarding system, everyone just crowded the gate. Food was unappetizing at best. Colombo Qatar Airways staff at Colombo airport were not very helpful when trying to change details of my booking."

Pros: "Great food, comfortable new plans, great food, great crew"
Cons: "Boarding in Colombo was dire - they boarded the plane from the back, leaving Business Class passengers waiting in the hot, uncomfortable gate area until last"

Pros: "I think that the food can improve and it felt like the flight was short staffed."

Pros: "Crew was amazing"

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"

Cons: "Old plane - ACE - very basic movie selection."

Pros: "The crew were very hard working and did a great job."

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: "Crew was amazing really .. best crew you may have... sear very comfort, the ICE is very amusing"

Pros: "Service & caring were superb"
Cons: "The snack was served not good and eatable. Emirates like one of leading air lines could have been served a better food. If it is cost cutting effort to serve a very basic snack like this, customers will be finding other air lines in the future."

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"

Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable"

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: "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: "Love the outfits the flight attendants wear Love the attention they give to all ...and basically everything else was above GOOD"
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was a crabby lady sitting behind me on my way to Dubai the end of October who objected to me reclining my seat ..meanwhile, she had hers reclined! But I didn't consider it important enough to complain."

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Good leg-room."
Cons: "Crew do not seem to be attentive."

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: "Caring crew"

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: "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."

Cons: "The A/C was on full blast. Before take off the flight attendant took away my pillow from my lap?? No blanke was provided upon asking and my pillow was noy returned either. Considering this flight took off from CMB at 3:00 AM, both items would have been a great help. I skipped my meal."

Pros: "Pretty mjuch ebverything except.."
Cons: "My boarding pass for second leg was not given in Colombo but in Dubai.. by then I didn't get an aisle seat."

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: "very comprehensive entertainment system"
Cons: "Food quality was a letdown. Crew was very rushed with meal service and did not return to offer drinks once meal service concluded. No ammenity pack for a business flight."

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: "I was very comfortable."

Pros: "Attendants were attentive, effecient and very helpful. Made the long flight wonderful."

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: "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."

Pros: "Good connecting experience in Dubai."
Cons: "Comfort of seats could be better"

Pros: "Crew couldn't have been friendlier!!"

Pros: "I didnt mych like anything of this transit sector from colombo to maldives."
Cons: "First off, if im buying a ticket and traveling by myself and have an overnight 11hrs and 35min layover i expected some sort of accommodation given that the Maldivian airport is an outside one. Not only did they (Maldivian Emirates counter officer Ibrahim Shinad) refused to give me a lounge they said to get a room at a hotel was $400 US! Which is absurd. I had to sleep on metal chairs. They also closed most shops by 12am and by the time we landed and went through checkin it was 1130. Not a pleasant experience at all."

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"

Pros: "Entertainment, lounge.."

Cons: "There was a delay"

"Greeting BH International Airport, Flight No. GF-2101 From Bahrain to Dammam At 1:35 am. to 2:20 am. Booking reference: WFYQEG I was informed that I will receive my baggage in Dammam Airport, later on I arrived in Dammam and I didn’t get my baggage, they claimed due to my friend Mr. Faisal didn’t show because he left the Airport and drive his own car all the way to Dammam. OK, I get it and I totally respect the system when you don’t show up your baggage get dropped from the flight, but it’s not my fault when i stay in Bahrain Airport waiting for my next flight around 5 hours then once i get to Dammam I don’t receive my baggage, because my friend who’s didn’t show up his baggage was arrived to Dammam airport, and i’m the one who deserve to get his own baggage didn’t receive anything. I think you mixed up between our baggage, the tag on my bag has his name but actually it’s mine and his bag has my name but actually it’s for him, that’s why I received his bag in DMM airport and I didn’t get mine and i was so frustrated. Also here’s the baggage numbers: GF 175011 My baggage wasn’t received GF 175008 His baggage was received and he don’t deserve to receive it because he left the airport and didn’t show up the flight For now i need to get my baggage to DMM airport please or contact me in personal please +966559600495 or this email.

Cons: "The cabin crew looked sad. Not a single one of them had a smile on their face. There was no welcome when I got on the aircraft, I was not woken up for food and was not asked later if I wanted something to eat."

Cons: "Was not a fan of the breakfast offered."

Pros: "New plane. Quiet flight. Good service."
Cons: "Boarding was too long and a bit chaotic"

Pros: "The price was excellent, the (A330) plane was in good clean condition, they provided with blankets, pillows and headphones. The food was better than most airlines I have travelled on and the entertainment was okay but not as good I would have wanted. Overall, I would say 4 stars all round."
Cons: "Entertainment could have had more on offer, the plane was generally cold, an on-board wifi on their major (A330) planes would have been helpful and upgrades to their short haul planes would be good too."

Pros: "Nothing much I liked other than it was a regular (A321) plane service: nothing stood out for me. Nevertheless, still would travel with them because of the competitive price."
Cons: "The (A321) plane could done with an overhaul, but understandable as to why it is the way it is; for the purpose short hauls. Besides, the flight was only for an hour. Other than that, nothing much more to say."

Pros: "I liked the info I was getting from the airline, through sms. And everything was on time."
Cons: "The in-flight entertainment was there but no headphones, which makes it useless. The flight was short but still."

Pros: "The crew was helpful, the boarding was organized"

Pros: "fast boarding, got the luggage quickly."
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Flight was delayed, so missed the connection. Was made to wait at Bahrain for more than 24 hours without any accommodation. Will never travel by gulf air again. It's the worst airline in the world."

Cons: "I head phones I didn’t get my bags I have been waiting for the past 3 hours at the air port and I haven’t received my bags yet and I think I will Waite for 3 more hours"

Pros: "All went right namely the seats but the luggage condition is the worst"
Cons: "Air France is not a low fare airlines, I had to pay 225 USD against 3 luggages which is not acceptable. We should have the right for one luggage per ticket as all other airlines.

Pros: "Timely and smooth teansit."
Cons: "Food has a way to go to be appetising."

Pros: "SFO - CDG (Air France) was a great journey in all respects. But the one major reason for that was, the middle seat was empty. I was so fresh after the journey, would definitely recommend this flight to anyone."

Pros: "Great service"

Cons: "Plane left more than 40 minutes late with no explanation or apology."

Pros: "The entertainment screen was a small 4" screen. The movie selection was outdated. The screen in my seat did not work.

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "No offer of snack with no egg in it."

Pros: "I didn’t actually liked the entertainment"
Cons: "I just didn’t enjoy the entrainment."

Cons: "The company simply lets passengers board a fulled booked flight with far too much luggage. Result, take off 20 minutes late because there was not enough room for luggage in the overhead compartments. I was flying with just a small backpack that went under the seat"

Pros: "None"
Cons: "The airlines didn’t even notify the passengers with the connecting flight. As the arrival was little late, all the passengers have missed their connection flights in Toronto and there was no notification or communication made on the new flight. When I went to the Air France counter in the airport, the staff has gone for the day and trying to get a hold of telephone rep took 2-3 hours and I by the time I found about my new connection, I was already late. Somehow I managed to get to the Terminal 1 and when I spoke to the lady (indian) at the Check-In counter, she has refused me to Check-In because i slipped the line up. The people in the lineup didn’t have any objection and they let me go first for Check-In as I’m already late to my flight. I wante to say something to her, but I’ve controlled my frustration. Luckily the other person in the Check-In counter offered to help me Check-In. Here is my word to the Indian lady staff “F**k You B***h” - learn some people skills."

Cons: "Food, crew appear rushed"

Pros: "Pretty decent"
Cons: "Not much"

Cons: "Disappointed to get delayed due to control tower issues at CdG. Landed more than 30 mins late in London"

Pros: "the Airline"
Cons: "The Airport, Security, Boarder control."

Pros: "Late, not enough legroom, smell from the toilet. Tiny TV screen, malfunctioning electronics, poorly maintained seats. Friendly crew! They looked tired, but they were still smiling while trying to keep passengers happy."

Cons: "The leg-space is very narrow The chair is very tiring No entertainment at all Food was tasteless But most surprising was that we were on stand by for our connecting flight. Though we bought the tickets months ago and we got our luggage checked in all the way to the final destination."

Pros: "Nothing..worst experience ever. Simply apologising for delayed doesn't help"
Cons: "Flight into and out of indiapolis was delayed by 2 hours. Missed my connection flight to LHR because of the delay. never had such a flying experience. Flight was operated by Delta. I won't be flying them again."

Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Not enough food"

Pros: "I like that they still feed you and provide alcohol for free, even on a 40 min flight (unlike BA)."
Cons: "At one point during the flight I took a video out of my window with my camera, a member of the cabin crew barked at me in French. In bewilderment I asked her in English to repeat herself and she sarcastically repeated what she had said, in French, I asked for her to speak in English (which she had done to me previously on this Paris to London flight) yet again she scolded me in French. I was left absolutely none the wiser and it left a bad taste in my mouth."

Pros: "Movie selection was awesome! Food was good too."
Cons: "Too many interruptions. Every time there's an announcement, it interrupts the movies and some of the announcements were completely unnecessary and there were so many of them, it was like constant interruptions, really annoying."

Pros: "Food and service"
Cons: "Too many business class seats and the plane is so big it basically feels like flying on coach. You have two seats next to the window so it's exactly the same when trying to get up than in economy class with a passenger stuck next to you"

Pros: "Boeing 777 had a lot of space. Good legroom. Timely departure and arrival, hassle free, safe trip all the way. Enjoyed the red wine; very delicious!"
Cons: "Seat didn't recline. The entertainment unit was very difficult to dislodge and raise to use (We were in the front). Movies were kind of older ones but I had reading to do so entertainment wasn't that important."
