Cons: "Majority of movies were either B movies or older movies. Would have enjoyed more recent movies."
Pros: "I felt that the crew kind of forgot about us; there were lots of trolleys going by with drinks but each presumed that we had been served. I also felt that the crew in this section weren't friendly. I know it was an extremely busy flight but there wasn't much eye contact with the some of the crew, I felt that the stewards (men) were the least friendly."
Cons: "The food was bland and boring but i do like having real knives and forks. The white wine choice wasnt good. The crew didn't seem that familiar with the types on offer, ie savignon blanc, chardonnay etc. They just handed you the wine and hoped it would be ok. I felt for such a long flight the crew could have announced that if anyone would like extra snax or drinks then feel free to call a member of the crew or even go to the kitchen and ask. Wifi was offered on the flight but it wasn't explained how to use it so I didn't have this facility as I couldn't connect! Once we asked it was explained but I still wasn't able to connect. Would be helpful if this could be explained / announced to the passengers."
Pros: "Entertainment selection and legroom were good Entertainment selection included recent movies in various languages and premium TV shows."
Cons: "Legroom in economy was good; however, seat width wasn't. You rub elbows with your neighbors while eating. Asian vegetarian meals were nauseatingly spicy - not the "hot" spicy type, but the cinnamon/cardamom overuse type. Most crew members gave a cold shoulder to passengers."
Pros: "We arrived."
Pros: "Everything is wonderful"
Cons: "Tight Economy Class seats"

Pros: "The A380 was much more comfortable way to fly than the 777"
Cons: "I disliked the food"
Cons: "We were allowed down the jet way to board only to come to a closed plane door - waited for at least 5 minutes for plane door to be opened. Crew seemed tired and disengaged. Walked on the plane asked crew how they were and got less than good reply. In flight woman never smiled, overall crew seemed tired and as though they did not want to be there. Perhaps SFO based crew on way home? Tired from flight over to Dubai? But it was really noticeable and a real difference from the flight over to Dubai from SFO 2 weeks earlier."
Pros: "Boarding, cabin crew. Entertainment, aircraft, everything was top notch."
Cons: "Food is outdated. Menu is not based on nutrition. The pizza served at end of flight is terrible. It should be replaced with a high protein snack. Food is tilted heavily towards carbohydrates and main entree is about 25 percent less than it should be. If the menu evolves a bit to include slightly larger portions, more fiber , protein, vitamins and minerals , it would be a true 5 star experience. Other than food, I rate this flight and experience 5 stars ."
Pros: "Movies and internet"
Cons: "Took too long for food service. We were in middle two seats and my partner was feed and finished before I even got my food. They should go down each side at same time."

Pros: "The crew were very helpful and attentive, the food was really excellent ( note I travelled in business)"

Pros: "Boarding and food was ok, staff friendly"
Cons: "Poor communication about delay, old entertainment system"
Pros: "The in-flight service is better than others."
Cons: "The check-in process at Heathrow is a chaos. I’m not sure who’s responsible, between the Airlines or the Airport. It sholuld arrange separate rows between those already check-in online and the others. I also saw the officials let some (1-5) group of (3-8) people each bypass the long queue, without reasons. The seat and leg space are so narrow that the direct 10+hour- flight is not so comfortable."
Cons: "Seat don’t recline enough. Sure neck. Entertainment was quite limited. Needs more movie options."
Pros: "This was an extremely efficient service. The crew were very attentive, the aircraft was very comfortable and quiet - although more legroom would have been better!!"

The head of Boarding crew told before the flight they would ask for a volunteer to exchange seat. They never did A German speaking Thai Disablef persons are not in Bulkhead. I am partially deaf.all the bulk head sits were given to Thai. The food were unpalatable.The worst I had.No tooth brushes no snacks in between. I will never fly this horrible airlines."
Pros: "Food served is nice especially the croissants"
Pros: "For such a short 1 hour flight, they managed to feed an A330 plane load of people - pretty impressive feat considering that US carriers don’t even bother to give complimentary hot food on a cross country flight. The color scheme didn’t hurt either. The FA’s were very accommodating and so pleasant."
Pros: "On time and service"
Cons: "Quite a bit odd for food from dhaka"
Cons: "Our connection flight from Germany was changed and we were not informed meaning we land in Germany after the flight has departed. We're forced to buy a last minute flight with a different airline to ensure we do not miss our honeymoon plans"
Cons: "Being charged 5700baht on arrival check in for luggage. No mention of this as I booked through kayak!!!"
Pros: "Crew friendly"
Cons: "Poor food and boarding"
Pros: "The crew are very friendly and helpful. There was a variety of entertainment options, with recent films, tv shows and music options to keep you busy. I also thought the food options were good, too. You didn't go too long without being asked about a new beverage or meal, pretty satisfying."
Cons: "The comfort could have been better. I find myself a little fidgety on flights anyway but I also had a sore back and couldn't seem to find a way to get completely comfortable, but I have had worse!"
Cons: "Lack of legroom"
Pros: "Service was friendly I had no one sitting next to me so was able to be comfortable Boarding was quick Entertainment could have more options but was still good"

Pros: "The flight was perfect from beginning to end, smooth flight, excellent service, clean plane, comfortable seat and best of all not crowded."
