Could have been better if my connection wasn't delayed to the point I wouldn't have made my international connection. Then was rebooked where I had almost 8 hr wait.. Then I get to Manila but no luggage. Top it off Delta has not offered me anything . Good possibility I'll never fly Delta again!!!

They let me board first because I'm a cancer patient & 75 years old. That was greatly helpful.

Cons: "Nothing to dislike."

Cons: "none"
Pros: "My first time to fly with Korean Air and I would not hesitate to fly with Korean Air again. The plane has a lot of leg room, aisle is not cramp to move around. It was a long flight, but the flight attendants made it worthwhile. They were very attentive to your needs with exceptional service. The food selection was good. Overall the best flight I've ever had flying overseas."

The service was the best. Flight attendants were so nice and accommodating at all hours of the day and didn't even flinch once after our multiple requests for more wine. They made sure we had enough food and snacks throughout the flights and provided plenty of water and juices to stay hydrated."
Cons: "too little leg room."
Pros: "The crew were excellent."
Cons: "I would have liked to have had a wider selection of movies. I would also have liked to have a hard copy menu to look at prior to meals, as unfortunately I couldn't always understand the crew, even though they were fantastic.

We should get snacks like peanuts or pretzels

Both flights SIN<-->MAN had very cold cabins. Why does it have to be very cold?

Well, I didn’t like much. The staff didn’t have any beverages except for coffee and water and they never came by. The food just sucked. There was no entertainment at all.

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: "The crew was excellent, respectful and helpful."
Cons: "Boarding by bus is poor"
Pros: "I loved that the airline offered several meals, snack options and drinks. The attendants were amazing and would highly recommend Singapore airlines to anyone flying internationally"
Cons: "The limited arm room/personal space. Not much leg room in economy for a 10 hour flight. Would be nice if airlines would decrease the number of seats and give a little more room so people aren’t hitting each other in the head with their arms"
Pros: "They were very generous with food and drinks. It was a pleasant flight."
Cons: "Our seats were uncomfortable. We did not like sitting on the front row three deep. We would have preferred the extra legroom seats we had on the 1st flight"
Pros: "Cabin crew was amazing!"
Cons: "Food was mediocre and we've had better on Singapore Airlines before."
Pros: "This was the most comfortable business class mid haul flight I've ever taken."
Cons: "Absolutely nothing went wrong."
Pros: "The cabin crew and the pilots. The flight went smoothly."
Cons: "Singapore Airlines should inform clearly of the mileage policy and the lounge access while using a code-share flight. I thought I booked as a code-shared Singapore Airline flight, but I got rejected from the lounge access."
Cons: "2.5 hour delay"
Pros: "Nothing beats Singapore SQ!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Friendly Staff. Very nice Meet and Greet Comfortable travel. Meals were tasty."

Pros: "Staying in a hotel for 24 hours."
Cons: "Not actually making it to Japan."

Cons: "Please move this service to DFW and displace the rubbish transatlantic service that is there"
Pros: "Fantastic flight attendants never needed anything just a 1st class job definitely a 5 star airline thanks for everything"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "This time I made the mistake of flying with my kids (4 and 6). The flight or them was last minute (booked less than 8 hours before take off) so there were no pre-planned kids meals etc. The in cabin team were awesome! They made sure they go a choice of meals, that they had things to do, that they were enjoying the flights. This on top of the usual awesome that they have."
Cons: "It's still in Huston. Flying economy isn't the same as flying business but my bank account says I need the cheaper option. Can we please move this flight to DFW instead? :-)"
Pros: "Seats, crew"
Cons: "Nothing else other than above"
Pros: "More movies and TV than you can watch, incredible cabin team, low cost, I mean, what's not to like. American, are you listening?!?"
Cons: "I have to drive from DFW to IAH, I wish Singapore would take over from American and British Air at DFW, honestly Singapore is cheaper, better service, nicer ground and in flight teams. It's worth the extra drive to travel with people that actually care"
Pros: "The plane had decent leg room, the food was great, service was excellent. I have no complaints. Snacks were handed out pretty regularly which was great. In flight entertainment was good too. I'll definitely fly Singapore again, I liked it better than other Asian airlines."

Pros: "The service crew served us well. They are friendly and helpful"

Cons: "They ran out of diet drinks."
Pros: "Crew service"
Cons: "Very old entertainment system. Poor screen visibility. Cramped"
Pros: "The presence and attitude of the flight attendants were highly pleasant and accommodating. The entire flight was very comfortable and made the 9 hour journey from Manchester to Houston Texas fast and enjoyable. The flight attendants always had a wonderful smile which felt genuine many a time and always made an effort to speak at the level of the passenger. When I had trouble connecting to the Wifi, one attendant even knelt down and connected my phone manually as I was not tech savvy in this regard. The food was of much higher quality as well compared to other airlines I traveled with on this trip."
Cons: "Really the only issue was there was a 2 hour delay on departure, however this was due to issues out of control of the airline and I did not mind as the airline's ambience and my experience with it overshadowed any delays."
Pros: "The entrainment was amazing!"
Cons: "Seats were a little cramped"
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: "The flight wasn't full so we had a spare seat between us, That made economy barely tolerable."
Cons: "The seats in economy are now Way TOO SMALL! You better start calling Economy - "Stearage"! Food was not as good as on past flights with SA. Movie selection not as good as past SA flights. Earphones supplied are horrible!!!"
Pros: "Overall service, good leg space."
Cons: "We were seated in the same section with four babies."
Pros: "Loved the crew. Really helpful."
Cons: "1) while boarding you should keep families with kids (at least till 6yrs of age or with disabilities) prior to other people... 2) food was ok ok"
Pros: "Good reliable SQ service"
Cons: "I got the seat with communications box on the floor under the seat in front... no foot room :-("
Pros: "The service in coach was very impressive! The flight attendants could not be more attentive! I can only imagine how it would be in business or first class."
Pros: "Food, entertainment, cleanliness of the restrooms"
Cons: "I was travelling with a toddler and they did not have a toy or activity to give her on a 15 hour flight. We were told to keep our seats upright during meal times and to keeo our window shutters down during other times. This made sense. But there were passengers right in front of us who had their seats reclined during meal time and the crew did not tell them anything."
Pros: "Crew went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. Seats seemed roomier in economy than other airlines. Lots on movie choices."
Cons: "I didn't care much for the meals, but my husband loved them."
Pros: "crews are energetic and warm welcoming passengers."
Cons: "aircon temperature is too hot for seat 50H area."
Pros: "The attendants were helpful, smiling and friendly. The entire time We flew with an 18 month old and they came looking for us before he flight to help us carry our stuff on board. They gave her a toy, asked for her name, and checked on us often. They also gave my husband and I an option for early food service so that one of us could help our daughter eat. The movie selection was great. Take off, flight and landing were smooth. And we arrive half an hour early both directions!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "again, the crew anticipated our needs"
Pros: "Everything is suport wonderful"
Cons: "Price. it's better"
Pros: "The crew and inflight food and entertainment was good. The person on the transfer desk was very helpful."
Cons: "We were unable to use the website to check-in online, which meant we had to fly to Manchester to check-in. Which is very poor given modern technology. (We were able to check in on line for the flight from Houston)"
Pros: "The staff were great, very efficient."
Cons: "I asked to be placed in a seat as close to the front as possible as I suffer from motion sickness in the back of the plane. I was placed in the back row all the way to my destination and all the way home. I vomited 8 times and felt very sick. I did notice that there were many seats available in the front of the plane but they are never given out as women with babies and children always get them and then single travellers like myself are made sit in the back. I travel a lot, I usually fly Qantas and they are very good at providing seats closer to the front. I will be reluctant to fly Singapore Airlines again due to the fact that they were not accommodating at all."

Quality of food and urgency to diabetic passengers need to be taken care of seriously

The best, Qatar Airways is incompatible

Cons: "None all good"
Pros: "best airline"
Cons: "when its best there is no comment"
Cons: "Getting on and off the plane took some time, but doesn't it always? Economy class was slightly more comfortable than many other airlines, but nothing to write home about. Qatar Airways really shone in the food, the service (both onboard and off) and the entertainment. Good experience."

Cons: "Better service and better food"

Cons: "Everything good as usual"
Pros: "Flight attendant assigned to our area was very kind, welcomed us to the flight, and made us feel at home. Wish I had remembered her name."

Pros: "As efficient as ever"
Pros: "Good Service.Efficient"
Cons: "No Phone charging facilities on back of the seat unlike other Qatar aircraft."
Pros: "Awesome leg room in economy. Helpful staff."
Cons: "Main courses weren’t all the great."

Pros: "The entertainment was reasonable, I enjoyed the festive choices."

Then told that we won't be getting on until 7am the next day, but only really started boarding at 8:30am. By the time we were told about the reschedule to the next morning, it was too late to get a hotel room (too far away) and was told that I could use a 'Quiet Lounge' at the airport (which wasn't quiet). While waiting to board at 7am the next day, ground staff told us that they had to change the plane so there would be a further delay. On boarding, we discovered that it was the SAME PLANE."
Pros: "Qatar airways is the best company"
Pros: "Spacious for economy, pleasant flight attendants"
Cons: "Nada!"

Cons: "Great staffs and food service."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "my flight was delay 24 hours"
Pros: "The flight got delayed for 4.5 hours. We didnt receive any call, sms or email informing us about the delay. We went to the airport for checkin only to discover that it was delayed! No justification or any reason were given to us. We are travelling with a baby. We had to get a taxi to return to our home and return back to the airport after 4.5 hours. Called qatar airways and send them a xomplaint email. No one cared to answer. The worst flight ever. Will never go with qatar airways anymore"
Cons: "Delayed for 4.5 hours. Extremely bad customer service"
Cons: "Not one of their newest planes."
Pros: "Hospitality"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "The flight attendents were chilled. Very friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "The food is much tastier in business class. Used to be better in economy, but that has changed."
Pros: "The crew was always present. The food was good too."
Cons: "Too many crying children, but that has nothing to do with you guys. And the movie selection could have been more and better. The bathrooms should be frequently checked and cleaned."
Pros: "Quality of foods and service"
Pros: "-Cleanliness -on time arrival"
Cons: "-Cramped seats I have flown long haul to Melbourne on Cathay and Emirates and Qatar airways economy seats were excruciating to sit in."
Pros: "Everything was excellent as I have come to expect. The business class seat was not one of those new diagonal ones, but made a full width flat bed, so I could sleep for a few hours. Food and service excellent."
Pros: "The usual customer care, from checking in to leaving the plane, second to none. Food choice and quality excellent."

Cons: "The flight we took out from Doha to India was a bad experience the boarding was not handled well and the crew in that flight were not attentive."
Cons: "Take off delayed. Plane had air conditioning problems."
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment selections were top notch. Also the service was very good. I would definitely fly with them again. They replaced our flight from an A380 to a B777. The 777 was much smaller and cramped. Also we no longer had the option of choosing our seats. I later found out this was due to an issue with Delta and Atlanta not allowing proper booking of larger planes."
Cons: "Since their service is new to Atlanta we had a bit of a problem checking in. They had separated their economy class section from business class at two separate areas within the terminal. These areas were not close to each other too and made it very difficult to find where to check in. The economy area was actually hidden away and made it difficult to find. It was so difficult that they finally started letting economy people check in at business class since everyone was getting lost. I am sure with time they will resolve these minor issues however."

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

Food was cater to one nationality staff did what they could but could not help family with controlling there kids dreaming on flight was the worst time on Emirates flight in 15 years dont know if will fly again with this airlines

Cons: "Didn't leave the UK, volcano"
Pros: "In every way this was an excellent flight."
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Some customers were allowed to drink to excess. Staff lacked the discipline to say no. Cabin staff showed clear bias to some customers. They chose to chat with passengers and neglected their duties. Little clusters of drinkers gathered in non seat areas away from their seats causing noise. Staff did not challenge this. Female staff too busy giggling with drunk men"
Pros: "Got a promotional upgrade and was incredibly impressed ! Flying will never be the same !"
Cons: "The fact that my next flight is going to be economy"
Pros: "Nice ontime flight."
Pros: "Comfortable seat, even in economy class. Very quiet engine noise. Extensive in-flight entertainment. Attentive crew."
Cons: "Boarding experience was cumbersome and overly complicated. After going through the whole security screening process to enter the departures area (I boarded in Singapore), the whole security process is performed again to get to the gate. Why do I and my carry-on luggage need to be checked twice? Once at the gate, all passengers are herded like sheep into an area that has insufficient seats for the number of passengers, so many are left to stand or sit on the floor. If the airline wants to use a plane that carries 500+ passengers, then use a gate that can accommodate that number."
Pros: "Travelled economy and it was very good. Would love to try business class sometime. Staff excellent food very good."
Pros: "Everything very, very good!!!"
Pros: "The food and service. Toilets are clean"
Cons: "Should watch on how many beer/champagne the steward serving to the customer as we had an old man who is super drunk sitting beside us and keep asking for more. Should also include toothbrush for our overnight flight as we reached Melbourne in the morning."
Cons: "Broken seat, little leg room...A380 is a much better plane than the airbus."
Pros: "Food and entertainment and punctuality"
Cons: "Quite a long wait to disembark"
Pros: "Business class upgrade was available for this flight, and it was well worth it."
Cons: "The food was mediocre, at best. Odd food combination choices. I don't expect gourmet on a flight, so don't try to pretend you're serving it."
Pros: "Service is excellent and I really enjoyed the musicians while waiting to bord the plane"
Pros: "Everything was wonderful the crew was outstandingly friendly! I would definitely fly again"
Cons: "We couldn't take a flight for many reasons my wife she's pregnant and not allow to take a flight ,Your company didn't help us for changing our flight this moment so we lost our flight ,our trip,our money Thank you KAYAK"
Pros: "Great service all round and lovely staff on board! A delight to fly."
Pros: "Everything else was good besides the below content."
Cons: "The customer service. After the meals came I pressed my button for assistance and was not attended to at all, there was over an hr before our flight was due to land. I didn't want to move from my seat as the person beside looked busy at work and I didn't know where I would go because I couldn't see any flight attendants anywhere."
Pros: "Facilities and Crewe in business class were great"
Cons: "The food was not great. The pheasant was hard and dry and my mums gluten free meals where not very appetising"
Pros: "Upgraded to Business Class. On a A380 its really significant."
Cons: "The crew was abit too talkative during non-service."
Cons: "The people at ticket issuing counter is very arrogant. Customs form was not given while issuing ticket and I was sent back to the airline ticketing counter and had to stand back in line for customs."
Pros: "Kind flight attendants, perfume available in the restrooms, great variety of choices of entertainment (including listening to Quranic recitation if one feels so moved), interesting playlist of songs as you await takeoff ("Fly Me to the Moon, Rocket Man, Starman, etc.)"
Cons: "I thought I'd get an overnight stay due to the distance of my flight and the length of my layover (10 hours) but I found out too late that I didn't. The airport is not conducive to comfortable sleeping! I did appreciate the meal voucher though; make sure you ask for it at the Emirates Connecting Flights desk if you have a connecting flight with Emirates Airlines."
Cons: "The fact that I can only carry 30 kg and also that it is very expensive to add extra luggage."
Pros: "Loved the space and comfort and friendly crew"
Cons: "I travel overseas 1 to 2 times per annum. I've always chosen flights based on economical costs only, and most times disappointed by the level of service, quality and overall feel. This time recently, I chose Emirates airline and was impressed by their overall offering. I'm now converted and will fly Emirates ALWAYS!!"
Pros: "This flight was so good, I did not want it to end! I will choose to fly Emirates any chance I get."
Pros: "The spacious seats and the in-flight service"
Pros: "The extra seating space - made the long journey A bit more bearable and relaxing."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Excellent"

I'm flew Swiss for the first time and like it

Pros: "Crew was really nice can’t complain"
Cons: "Other airlines offer free beer or even hard liquor here u have to pay"
Pros: "Crew was excellent. Seats were uncomfortable"
Pros: "The crew were outstanding. They fulfil my needs when I need it and they were very polite and professional. Smooth boarding and flight."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "None"
Cons: "Seats"
Cons: "Haven’t got there yet!!"
Cons: "No overhead fans and seats were not very comfortable."
Pros: "Really good flight. Clean,on time, efficient. Early arrival even"
Pros: "The BUD-ZRH flight was on Swissair aircraft, not on Edelweiss or another low cost feeder airline. Over the years, I have flown both options, and while Edelweiss is a fine carrier, Swissair flights are still a cut above. Contributing to the positive experience was the friendly agent at check-in at BUD."
Pros: "Left on time"
Cons: "I wanted to get some work done on.y flight but I couldn't even open my laptop screen more than a few inches."
Pros: "Steward Very pleasant, helpful and accomodating."
Cons: "No information on the flight about how to proceed with our missed conncetions nor anyone to meet in Zurich at gate with information."
Pros: "Swiss took care of arranging hotel for us and substitution flight."
Cons: "Missed connection flight because of delay"
Cons: "Entertainment system was not working"
Pros: "Crew were good, apart from forgetting at breakfast time that I had ordered gluten free food. Food was OK but not memorable."
Cons: "Business class is not as roomy as other airlines. My partner had to climb over me to reach the aisle, there is very little storage space and seat size is quite small. Choice of movies is limited."
Pros: "Good flight"
Pros: "upgrade to business class"
Cons: "the flight was delayed, so I have arrivede later and was told that I should have been there for the original time..."
Cons: "You need more time to make the connection in Zurich from domestic to international.....very rushed to do in less than one hour...."
Pros: "They waited for us. We came in late and had to connect to this flight and they waited the 10 min for me and 8 other passengers. Very grateful for that. Service and food was amazing!"
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Very friendly and efficient Good food"
Cons: "Zürich airport early closing at night so difficult to check in and drop off luggage"
Cons: "This flight was missed due to the delay of the first flight."
Pros: "It was nice because plane was half empty so had quicker attention from stewards - everything was good."
Cons: "I am a frequent flyer from HK to Western Europe and it’s a problem transversal to the majority of the airlines. Service quality drops significantly when coming to Asia. Flights to Europe provide exceptional service."
Pros: "The hospitality & staff were impeccable."
Pros: "The chocolate was good. The flight was fine no issues. The flight staff was very good."
Cons: "Had to pay $100 for my second bag. I did not pay for the extra bag on my way out. As a star alliance member and a united chase explorer card user I don’t think I should be paying for the extra bag. I booked the flight through United for the expressed reason that I have privileges when on united and feel if I book united these privileges should transfer. If not what’s the point of being a loyal customet"
Pros: "The next best thing to the hard-working and kind crew was the lighting design. Meals were OK, and I was delighted that the vegan meals I ordered for my travel companion were right there as ordered. Not a common occurrence of late, I’m afraid, so I congratulate Swiss one getting this one right."
Cons: "Legroom is non-existent. This was by far the most uncomfortable aircraft I have ever flown on, with the possible exception of an Ilyushin 62 operated by Tarom in 1983. I felt bad for the man in front of me, with my knees in his back. That is, until he reclined his seat and put my video screen in my face. Not much to watch anyway, but it was impossible to lean forward at all. Boarding at JFK was rather chaotic."
Pros: "The flight was delayed due to technical problems, and they immediately gave each person 20 Francs towards dinner while in the terminal- which was very nice. The aircraft itself was impeccably clean, even though it had already carried passengers elsewhere earlier in the day. The service was fantastic, and you can never go wrong with free chocolate."
Cons: "I liked everything except the airplane itself, which I hated. I was fortunate enough to get an exit row on my long flight going over; I did not get lucky on my way home. The flights between Zurich and Brindisi were more comfortable than the long haul flights. The long haul flights are abominable and should be outlawed by governments as they are currently configured. The boy next to me literally could not fit his legs/thigh bones in the space provided by his seat. I did okay as I am not tall, until the woman in front of me decided to lean back. It is not her fault, however, though I thought nasty things about her and periodically tried to dig my knees into her back to get her to lift up her seat. The fault belongs entirely to Swiss Air, which chooses to treat human customers as steerage. The only thing that made the experience worse was the impossibility of choosing my seat online for my return because I had only a smart phone with not-great wifi available. Choosing one's seat should not be dependent on having good wifi and a computer, however. It is bad practice to "sell" seat choices. The families around me were not able to sit together because of this shoddy, greedy practice on the part of the airline. It is also not fair, subsequently, that other passengers are faced with giving up the seats they've chosen, or been given, to assist families in sitting together. Honestly, the extent of the greed on the part of airlines nowadays is astonishing. What used to be a thoroughly enjoyable way of traveling has become an ordeal at best."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Crew just ok."
Cons: "Seats too small/legroom."
Pros: "Service was remarkable - food far superior! Will be my airline of choice going overseas."
Pros: "Very comfortable and attendants were very attentive."
Cons: "Checking in at the Tel Aviv Airport is an absolute nightmare! It is congested and disorganized."
Pros: "The crew is rude"
Cons: "40 min delay"
Pros: "Food was excellent and staff was friendy."
Cons: "Wifi was expensive."
Cons: "We did not receive the baby pram after landing. Needed to pick it up at the baggage claim."
Pros: "Best flight crew experience ever"
Pros: "Same as above!"
Pros: "They put us in a nice hotel"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for more than 1 hour and it was overbooked. So they put us on a united flight for today. This flight is also overbooked."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Just a comment that the flight is short and I understand that the company does not provide any food except for chicolate"
Pros: "crew was friendly, little snack was delicious"
Cons: "Just before landing in Zurich the flight attendant started to announce the gates for flight connections. I was on tight schedule trying to make my connection to Amsterdam. He first started to give my gate number, but then said there won't be flight to Amsterdam until the next day. I was very worried. When landing it was very difficult to find anyone working for Swiss to assist me. Then someone told me that my flight would be leaving in 3 minutes. I asked to be rushed through line, but everyone said not too worry because plane would wait for me. When I arrived at gate there was no one there. Then it took quite a while to find another Swiss employee to help me. There seemed to be a lot of confusion."
Cons: "Checking bags took longer than I would have liked."
Pros: "Very good service on board"
Cons: "Crammed into middle seats both way. Many/Long lines in ZRH/SFO"
Pros: "Service, food was excellent. They went above and beyond."
Cons: "Hard to say.. Comfort of economy section."
Cons: "Same comments as above."
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."
Cons: "100% of our checked luggage was lost and two days into our one week biking trip in Sweden we have heard NOTHING from Swiss Air. No knowledge of where the four large bags are, no follow up and no help. Basically, we have been left with biking clothing and little hope that our bags will show up before we leave Sweden. Unacceptable and we will NEVER fly this airlines again."
Cons: "I had a good seat, the plane was comfortable and the crew was nice"
Pros: "Upgraded to business, new 777 plane, good snack"
Cons: "No headphones"
Pros: "As mentioned in my previous review about Edelweiss, I couldn't be any happier with the experience. I always fly back home (Zurich to NY) with Swiss airlines. I love the flight, crew and their performance. They make sure that you're comfortable and accommodate you to your every need. SWISS and Edelweiss will always be preferred by myself and I'll make sure to always recommend you to family and friends. Thank you for your outstanding and remarkable service."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for no particular reason. The entertainment system is terrible - it was interrupting (freezing) the movie every several minutes making it almost impossible to watch."
