Airline reviews

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"

Cons: "Food was mediocre and we've had better on Singapore Airlines before."

Cons: "crew isnt very careful in serving the food but its not really that bad. but im just comparing it from my previous flights so i think that group of FA's can do better. And the food was served a bit a late so they dont have time to serve hot beverage anymore."

Cons: "Flat bed in business class was disappointing. No way anyone taller than 6’ could stretch out. Overall, it was an inferior experience to business class on Cathay Pacific, which sets the standard IMO."

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

Pros: "We love Singapore Airlines, seriously it's not hard, you just have staff that care, clean comfortable air craft, good inflight entertainment. Are you listening American and British Airways?"
Cons: "Please move this service to DFW and displace the rubbish transatlantic service that is there"

Pros: "First class service with economy prices via Kayak! Blankets, pillows, full meals, snacks, entertainment, hot towels before take off and landing. The crew is always spot on! I love Singapore airlines!"

Pros: "Staff worked very hard and were very helpful."
Cons: "The staff were run off their feet trying to help the families with babies and toddlers. The flight was not pleasant because of the crying and screaming children around us."

Pros: "Easy online me check-in with proper notification & reminder. Attentive crews and good on board entertainmrnt. However, food wise just a good thumb up and not excellent coz we looking forward to see more variety of foods available on board"

Pros: "Flight is comfortable, food is nice. Most importantly, the flight was on time."
Cons: "The entertainment system requires additional setup, and need my own mobile device. My mobile device was low in battery while I'm on my flight, so I'm not able to view any movies during the flight."

Pros: "SQ did a great job again. I plan to fly them in the future."
Cons: "My only criticism is that the flight attendants didn’t pass through the cabin with water during the 9 hour flight."

Pros: "More leg room than other airlines, superb service and excellent food!"

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? :-)"

Cons: "Na"

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: "I loved the professionalism of the crew, and how they treat the passengers with such care. I prefer Singapore airlines over any other. Seats are very comfortable. This craft had touch screen monitors that worked well. I was able to use my own ear buds by pulling the jack out part way."
Cons: "I really only have one gripe. I wish there were more movie choices for adults that did not have foul language and immoral scenes."

Pros: "Foot rest, large movie screen, good food"
Cons: "They ran out of diet drinks."

Cons: "In flight crew manager in greenish dress was rude! Seemed like there weren’t enough restrooms on flight."

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: "Delayed flight from Shanghai due to air traffic issues, so I had a 10 minute window to make my connection in Singapore. Ground staff was waiting for me with a small car after I disembarked to drive me to the gate. And I somehow made my connection. Excellent service. Obviously my checked bag didn't make it, but I was told in advance and was kept updated before boarding and immediate after I disembarked at my final destination. When I went to the baggage service counter, they were already ready for me, had filled out my paperwork, and just needed an address to confirm the delivery of my suitcase. I'm super impressed to this attention to detail."

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: "Just a generic flight. Had nice movies but nothing special."
Cons: "I felt very cramped and though it's nothing with the airline I had 2 crying babies right near me during the flight."

Pros: "The comfort and food plus drinks."
Cons: "Delay in food distribution, over waiting because of many people but only twogroups of serving crew"

Pros: "My partner had a bad leg and the staff were very attentive and helpful in making her as comfortable as possible with extra pillows and getting ice for her ice pack."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable and I couldn't sleep without getting a really stiff neck. The vegetarian oriental meal was bee hoon with vegetables but the amount of vegetables were a lot more than the bee hoon thus making the meal less than filling and satisfying."

Pros: "No fuss flight but lacking that something extra"

Pros: "Flew business class to SE Asia and experienced great service, fast check-in & boarding, terrific seating and amenities, and outstanding meals. Came home well rested."

Pros: "Attention to customer service and needs"

Cons: "Price. it's better"

Pros: "The crew and inflight food and entertainment was good. The person on the transfer desk was very helpful."

Pros: "Aircraft was OK."
Cons: "Cabin crew service can definitely be better. Should offer more snacks for long flights."

Pros: "the service on the flight was the best I can ever recall having."

Cons: "Food was ok, not super high quality."

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: "Lots of movie and game options"
Cons: "Staff was slow to tend to my needs (i.e. Water), continually bumped into my shoulder or leg. Would not accommodate moving my seat next to my wife's because a couple wanted to have an entire row to themselves. Very frustrating"

Pros: "Airlines' diligence in arranging an alternative flight in place of the missed connection because the initial departure from JFK was delayed due to technical reasons"
Cons: "Much ballyhooed A350-1000 has noisy engines rudely interrupting my enjoyment of the entertainment system - may be my seats were too close to the engines. The seats are not all that comfortable though perhaps wider than usual configuration in economy."

Pros: "The entertainment was reasonable, I enjoyed the festive choices."
Cons: "Screaming babies, obese people sat next to me, water rationing, not a pleasant experience. Arrived sleep deprived and dehydrated. I have much better experiencs on a visit to Australia - this was my third time this year!"

Pros: "Everything....The service,the food,the in-flight entertainment(so many films to chose from) the flight attendants were brilliant,the flight was smooth it went by so fast as though time didn't exist.I recommend Qatar Airways to everybody."

Cons: "may be the fact that it was the same kind of food in both of the flights I had, is not that it was bad just in my opinion they should have more option, especially for south american people, thank you"

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."

Pros: "The usual customer care, from checking in to leaving the plane, second to none. Food choice and quality excellent."

Pros: "I can understand what kind of flight it was because it was a small plane"
Cons: "Bad smells and an old plane i hope you will change the plane to another better one"

Pros: "When we flew into Melbourne it was not a happy experience. Seats were cramped and arm rests wouldn't raise. The flight out, even though on the same model plane, was better. There was more room and we could raise the arm rests. For a 13+ hour flight that makes a big difference."
Cons: "Because the tickets listed the same type of plane in both the bad and not so bad flight, it is very hard to know what we're going to get. I'd love to be able to plan to avoid the bad experience, but if they use the same plane in two configurations, there isn't enough information to do so."

Pros: "On Time Cabin Crew great"
Cons: "Seats are so tight you will sense both of your neighbors skin during the entire flight"

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and everything else was very good and comfortable on the flight."
Cons: "The boarding process was odd. We got to the gate too early (by maybe 10 mins before boarding time) so we were told to sit outside of the designated seating area and that they would make an announcement when we should go back up there. There was never an announcement, but we felt it was getting late so we went to check at the desk and they then said we were late and they were waiting on us. They were very nice about everything, but just thought that was really strange."

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Entertainment. Not all films have subtitle"

Pros: "The staff was friendly throughout and boarding was quick. There were no delays in taking off. They had also helped organize a hotel for the long layover including meal vouchers, visa, and return transfers."
Cons: "During meal times they didn't ask the person ahead of me to put their seat up which made it difficult to eat. They also ran out of quite a few meal options on the various flights I took."

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Staff were rude, careless. I do think I have paid less to purchase of ticket - why will I not get good service. If you want to treat people differently for their skin color and country of origin then charge less price for the ticket !!"

Pros: "Everything...quick board,friendly crew,nice flight, good food, in flight entertainment was good....just a really nice airline to go with"

Cons: "food quality on board was really bad. there were no snacks on the plane as well..."

Cons: "Entertainment unit was average"

Cons: "At Nairobi airport, we were waiting at the gate to board our plane. There was a lot of disorganization and confusion. A man made an announcement that we would need to go to another gate. He then retracted his statement and told us to remain where we were. My group was going to be pressed for time to catch our connecting flight. The confusion regarding take-off time and location was extremely anxiety-invoking. All of the people taking the flight had to walk quite a ways across the tarmac to board the plane. The flight itself was unremarkable."

Pros: "Same as the first flight."
Cons: "Same as the first flight."

Pros: "Turkish Airlines can really teach other airlines about hospitality and customer service. They really go above and beyond to make you feel super comfortable."

Pros: "CREW WAS GOOD FOOD AND SERVICE WAS TERRIBLE"

Pros: "Food was really good and no delays. Entertainment also really good."
Cons: "Can't really think about something."

Pros: "Turkish Airlines is my favorite airline going to Europe. We even did the 20 hr layover in Istanbul and had a great time staying for a couple of nights going and coming back. Staff is always friendly and the food is amazing. The food in coach is as good as first class on some US domestic flights"
Cons: "It's an airplane, there's not much to make it better besides giving more seat room. TA gives free drinks, a couple of meals, blankets, and the travel bag, only a snobby priss would gripe about flying with them. I've flown enough budget airlines that give you NOTHING that I love flying TA!"

Cons: "Thank you"

Cons: "Food in TK used to be great... not anymore!"

Pros: "crew was good enough... but seats was not comfortable, screen was broken and in general plane was a bit old for 2019 futures"
Cons: "more space for legs, modern screens"

Pros: "Great food. Great seats. Great stuff. Great plane and the landing did not feel st all! Definitely am happy!"

Pros: "Everything went well"

Cons: "Long delays, poor information, cold food and an entertainment system that wouldn't play films properly."

Pros: "The crew, the food and the entertainment on demand."
Cons: "A frightful flight due to the footstomping, loud, singing, annoying, intimdating andintoxicated English football fan onboard; who were heading from Istanbul to Ukraine for football finals between Liverpool and Madrid I believe. Their behavior made the trip the worst I have ever experienced. As I was seated in the business class section, I can only comment about what I saw and heard there. In that cabin, the cabin crew served alcohol to people that were clearly drunk, yet continued to provide more alcohol. The finale was when the rear section of the plane broke out in vulgar and loud football songs; being picked up by the drunken holigans in the business class section. At this point I was fearful for my physical safety knowing the history of footballers fueled by alcohol. In addition, had there been an onboard emergency, a planeful of drunk passengers would have added to the potential for disaster."

Pros: "Entertainment system was great. Plenty of movies, games, & tv shows available. Food was good - two full meals during 10 hr. Flight to and from Chicago. Seats, even in economy, were comfortable. Was very happy to learn that baggage would be checked thru to Denver from Athens, even though plane changes were made in Istanbul and Chicago. The two bags did not make the Chicago/Denver transfer, but were on the next United flight an hour later."
Cons: "Boarding process in Athens and Istanbul was confusing. Although boarding groups were assigned, none were used that we could tell. Just mass lineups, with little or no organization that we could see."

Pros: "Long time n not in time Food is not enough quality n quantity for health"
Cons: "Must change catering n in time , Staff working in the airport is not pro enough"

Pros: "Comfortable seats, good food"

Cons: "There was no USB ports to keep a phone charged. There was no power outlets between seats to keep a phone charged."

Pros: "Crew was good Comfortable seats"
Cons: "food could have been better"

Cons: "I missed my flight from ABV to Istanbul. The customer representatives at the airport office couldn’t help me find or place me on another flight. They wanted me to purchase a new ticket and pay full price instead of the difference. The flight ime on my itinerary was 12:15a on Sunday (instead of 00:15) which confused me. My flt coming to ABV, airline left my baggage in turkey too and had no representative at airport to inform us what happened. Seems airline treats flights to Nigeria this way"

Cons: "The seats were cramped together"

Cons: "On the registration checking in in Boston Logan Airport they did not tell me that I as an american citizen must have a visa. After arriving to Turkey they refused me to get in and sent me back to the states. I want refund all my expenses on this trip."

Pros: "The check in at Budapest was very helpful."

Pros: "Baku airport stunning. Better dessert. Helpful crew. Perfectly on time."

Cons: "The seats are very tie"

Pros: "Food was very good. Free wifi"
Cons: "Check-in and boarding were chaotic and poorly organized. In-flight crew was not very courteous or friendly. Entertainment system was old and didn't function properly. Bathrooms were never cleaned on 9 hour flight."

Pros: "Turkish Airlines offered the best connections to Athens at the best price. Connections were very tight and coming and going worked because the planes were absolutely punctual."

Pros: "Boarding was smooth"
Cons: "Food needs improvement and staff should be more friendly."

Pros: "The food was delicious."
Cons: "The wait times were ridiculous and always off schedule. From the beginning of the trio to the end of the trio there was consitency in going off schedule and being forced to stand in lines for hours. I would not fly Turkish again."

Pros: "Traveling business class makes all the difference, as it should. Trolley service lets one see and choose a meal. Attendants were very nice and helpful. Also, the Turkish Air Lounge in Istanbul is incredible and almost worth a destination in its own right."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing :D"

Cons: "it's not so much the airline's fault. they don't have US immigration desk at Istanbul airport, and going through immigration at JFK can take ages."

Pros: "The lounge was great"
Cons: "They lost my bag for 4 days while i had a 7 hour stop over meaning they had sufficient time to arrange for it."

Pros: "Overall smooth flight. Arrived time at Atarurk airport and well managed by flight crew and ground staff."
Cons: "They forgot to invite passengers with small children to board first. In flight service was good but seemed to be a bit slow as there was only one flight attendant serving half the economy cabin. They used to do a second drink service on this flight which was really nice before. Food was ok but TK has had better food on my other flights. The meatballs aren't as good as some of their more flavourful suppers."

Pros: "the crew was very nice and helping... everything went like clock :) was excellent... i got to early to the airport but overall it was great flight and i enjoy it the crew was very nice.... also to see the plain chef in the boarding is genius"
Cons: "nothing all was good"

Pros: "Crew, plane, entertainment."
Cons: "That it took 4 day's to get my luggage. I deserve to be compensated."

Cons: "I wanted to upgrade called Kayak that out me through to VAYAMA that then called Turkish airlines. Took hours in the phone (international call) they then told me I can't upgrade (payed upgrade) because the business is FULL, guess what??? Business was EMPTY"

Pros: "I liked the friendliness of the ticket person and all the flight attendants on both flights. The cabin was clean, the climate was not too hot or cold. The pilots were very good at their jobs. The food was good."
Cons: "I didn't like having to disembark the plane in Istanbul while it was on the Tarmac nor get back on the plane while it was on the Tarmac."

Pros: "Nothing"

Cons: "Air France delayed our JFK to CDG flight. That caused us to miss our connection flight afterwards from CDG to MUC. We got a later flight luckily but one of our bags got lost and is still currently lost!!!"

Cons: "I didn't get to board, ended up spending $2,400.00 over and above the $980.00 that I spent booking the initial ticket. I was not informed when I booked the ticket that when you transit through 2 schengen countries, you need a transit document. I was informed about it at then airport. Not only did I miss my flight, I had to book for the next day at a outrageous price. SUPER BAD CUSTOMER SERVICE...BOTH KAYAK and PRICELINE. Will never recommend you guys to anyone."

Pros: "Staff was so helpful and attentive to our needs.Providing service with a smile."

Pros: "Quick and efficient not lying more to say or critique."
Cons: "Coffee and a bread roll as a snack??"

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."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by atleast 45 mins and therefore had to rush at the CDG airport to catch the next flight."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Missed flight due to lack of direction, last minute gate change and they shut door in our face after telling us they were holding plane"

Pros: "From the boarding, to the friendly hostesses to the food and the business class seat, I was impressed all the way. My first time to fly Air France business to the US and it was great. I recommend it!"
Cons: "I just expected better toilet bag for business but what was given out was just basic."

Cons: "Leg space."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Airplane delay to take off 1 unknown reason After landing in Paris 50 min sitting inside airplane moving around Late for flight transfer. Sitting in Paris airport 5 hours. Customer service no working. Never fly Air France anymore !"

Pros: "Staff"
Cons: "We were 2h late"

Cons: "Security services at Manchester airport...too long and not friendly at all"

Pros: "The free glass of red wine when the plane finally took off."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. We were told that it was just a half an hour delay by the man that was informing us of the delay and then we were then told by a woman that it was going to be over an hour. We weren’t told any specifics of why the plane was delayed, other than: “ the engineers are looking at the issue now”. We received messages saying that the flight was cancelled but then we were told to ignore that. We were told that we would have an update every 10-15 minutes but by the time we had the next update was 1 hours later, we were told that the plane will depart at 15:50- which we did. But we also sat on the plane for an extra 2 hours or maybe even more (couldn’t bare watching the time at this point) because the man that was supposed to push the plane backwards in order to reverse the plane didn’t turn up so we then had to wait for all of the other planes to take off before we could. Eventually the plane set off at 18:20 and I got in France 19:30-20:00 ish?"

Cons: "It is very difficult to get around CDG airport with a disabled person. There is no shuttle. By the time we got to check in, we were ten minutes late. They would not check us in, and we paid over $700 to change tickets to the next flight. When I complained, I was told to stop being rude or I would get no ticket at all. My mother is 94 years old and we did the best we could given the circumstance."

Pros: "Comfortable, hospitality and wonderful service"

Pros: "Boarding was on time"
Cons: "flight was delayed by 20 minutes Boarding got me through Sky priority quickly. Had to then wait in the boarding tunnel as the cabin was not ready. large queue Seats were exactly the same as economy so offered no added benefits apart from the meal on board parked in a distant area of the terminal and had to shuttle bus to 2E which meant a very tight transfer"

Pros: "I liked the crew, they were professional and tried their best"
Cons: "The flight was a chartered flight . Air France informed us that due to cabin crew shortage they couldn't operate an air france flight and hence they hired Air Belgium. Whilst the crew were nice , the actual plane was old and creaky. It wasn't up to the standards expected of Air France. They could have done better in getting a plane up to standard. A lot of the passengers were disappointed ."

Pros: "Food and service was good and price was acceptable"
Cons: "Very long route"

Pros: "It was ok fligh"
Cons: "Food was not so good"

Pros: "The quality of service from the staff and their courtesy. A great asset of the airline."
Cons: "My luggage was left behind - this despite my being lifetme platinum."

Pros: "Standard on most parts with pleasant staff"
Cons: "Flight was 1/2hr with poor pre-flight communication on the topic. Food wise, the chocolate cookie was better than nothing...but a little savory snack would have been nice."

Pros: "In cabin crew was attentive and friendly. Food was good and came at good times. Middle bathroom on Airbus 380 was big and comfy."
Cons: "Boarding was not too well organized and I followed Security's direction who put me in wrong line and I wasn't able to board with my priority group. Sitting in exit row with no floor storage so this delay made it hard to find overhead storage above my seat. (Grrrr) Entertainment system didn't work which made the flight feel LOOONG. (They offered an in-flight credit, but I'd paid for premium exit row seat and had to choose between moving to working system in crowded middle seat or keep premium, exit seat. I decided to have them move me to a seat with a working entertainment system, which were available and they'd offered, but never happened.) When I got home, I discovered the gift I purchased with in-flight credit and my own money wasn't the one I'd requested from Duty Free catalog so now I have to figure out how to solve this problem. (COULDN'T GET IT RIGHT.) Premium exit row seat was narrow, due to in-seat tray table & entertainment system, but seatbelt mounts and thinly padded seat made it even more uncomfortable on a long flight."

Pros: "The fresh bread and cheese."
Cons: "The staff is very unprofessional in receiving the passengers and serving the drinks mainly. The luggage wasn’t received and after 24 hrs no news about it! It’s a shame"

Cons: "Cramped, no cabin bag space, late departure with no communication and lost checked luggage. Not a great Air France experience."

Pros: "it was cancelled so they got me on the next flight on Turkish"

Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "We ordered a vegetarian meal. However, the vegetarian option offered to those who did not order a special meal looked better than the vegetarian option that we received."

Cons: "There are always delays. Today it was that internet was down."

Pros: "1) USB charger and electric outlet 2) Availability of 2-across economy seats (for a price) 3) Vegetarian dinner option available and not too bad 4) Flight arrived on-time"
Cons: "1) No on-board wifi 2) Not much seating room - very thin 3) 45 minutes late taking off"

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: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The food was really poor. The chicken was as dry as it can be. The food taste was poor. I flow 3 weeks ago with KLM and the food was pretty good for flight food. In a French company I expect much more. The entertainment system on the airbus a380 was like an enchant IT system from the past. Very poor reaction time. Very messy and not people oriented at all. Especially after KLM's And Delta experience."

Pros: "Boarding sevece was very nice and helpful Thanks so much"
