Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The crew was very polite and very helpful. Boarding process was smooth and easy, however, the Singapore airport has security checks at every gate prior to boarding. This meant that after clearing this security process at the gate, bathrooms were not available until after boarding the flight and drinking water stations were not easily found in the secure boarding area. The aircraft was comfortable, menus were distributed early so that meal options could be made with full information in advance. The food was good and made available at routine intervals."
Cons: "On a 14 hour flight, staying well hydrated is very critical and difficult. It would have been nice for the crew to make more frequent trips through the cabin to offer just water refills to keep passengers hydrated and reduce plastic cup usage."
Pros: "Super good crew."
Pros: "Crew were helpful and attended to any needs that we requested. As I am a big person the seat is never that comfortable but Singapore Airlines seating is more spacious than other companies I have flown with."
Cons: "The food was not too attractive, better variety of main meals"
Pros: "crew handled the tough crowd well, but were not extremely hospitable"
Cons: "food was disgusting"
Cons: "I think the food in our flight was not that good.."

Pros: "Friendly crew and spacious."
Cons: "Food could be better"
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "More tasty snacks throughout the flight"
Cons: "Singapore airlines use their antique aged flights for services to chc.unconfortable and a poor in-flight entertainment system"
Pros: "The cabin crew were fantastic. Food was abundant. Most boarding systems worked well. Choosing seats was confusing on website so we were allocated seating. The newer planes had a fantastic touch screen entertainment system. The seats on the newer planes were much more comfortable and roomy"
Cons: "The small seats are squishy on the older planes. The entertainment system on the older planes were dated and difficult to use. I felt sick after the flight to UK but felt fine coming home after one long flight on a newer plane."
Pros: "Basics are covered. TV screen is big but otherwise nothing special."
Cons: "It is so annoying they want you to pay an extra $20 to pre book any seat. If you need the extra $20 that much, charge me in the original fare! Don't nickel and dime me. At check in they couldn't even get my child seated beside me although a change was made last minute at the gate. Every other airline I've flown recently was better. Sri Lankan and Emirates FAR better service."
Cons: "Ran out of options for dinner and could not eat the macaroni cheese they had on offer, so got 2 small packets of nuts instead...international flight running out of food options? Pretty slack. A part of the interior wall fell off onto my foot upon take off and I had to hold it in place for a while until a hostess came....doesn’t give you the best feeling when the plane starts breaking on take off. One of the male stewards was appalling towards a young mum I sat next too...too the extent of giving her dirty looks because she spilled a bit of water on the seat and then told her she had to pack everything away she was using, including the baby wipes! I stepped in and told him how this was not ok and all other staff members were helpful and he was making this Mum upset. He should not be working for such a people friendly reputable airline! Maybe Jetstar instead! Was appalled at the entire flight to be honest!"
Pros: "Food, service"
Pros: "Food, service"
Pros: "Boarding was great. Staff was cordial. Excellent flight."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew. Efficient service and good boarding. Seemingly wider seats than the newer A350s."
Cons: "Positively ancient entertainment system with poor selection and bad visual quality. Ads pop up every time you go into another menu. If you're flying SIN->BNE I'd avoid the 7.20am departure, you'll get the old 777-200s rather than the A350s they run on other departures."
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "The food for Premium Economy was very poor. The choices were substandard and the food at some meals was inedible. Very disappointing for the price of the tickets. The cabins and equipment seemed old and jaded."

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: "Friendliness and efficiency of crew. Comfortable seats and in-flight entertainment."

Pros: "Was very old plane but was good"
Cons: "Food and crew was well"
Pros: "The cabin crew are very helpful and friendly. I sat at the end of the row in the upper deck. After the gate door closed , they let me sit in the empty sit away from the toilets . During the flight they’re around with water and juices to make sure we’re dehydrated,"
Cons: "Crew was very poor in responding to any requests. I am usually very quite and light on demands as i hardly hit call button on the seat to get any assistance, but during meal, I was asked about drink and I opted for Ginger ale. Crew said, she will get back to me and I did not hear from her for another 10 mins, then there was repeat serve of drinks and I was asked if i needed any thing and asked the same drink, but then I was asked to wait. After I had finished off my meal and ready to go to sleep, someone was bringing my drink out and I then respectfully say no to it as it was bit late after the meal and asked for water instead and did not like the look on the face of the crew member. I saw it happening with other passengers as well and was under the impression, the whole crew performance was pretty poor and SIA was not up to its high-standards as I always like to fly with them. I will look for different option next time"
Cons: "The seats and entertainment system on our flight were in need of an upgrade. The seat padding was well worn and uncomfortable. The entertainment system is one of the old “pop-out the remote from the armrest” ones with a very average interface and display."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Aircond isn’t working at seat 60 onwards. Warm. Sweaty."
Pros: "Singapore service is always outstanding"
Cons: "temp on plane was freezing and even two blankets did not suffice. Everyone was really cold."
Pros: "Very nice crew."
Cons: "Why are the slippers/socks not distributed before take off or already in the seat pocket? Why is the food order taken after take of and not before? Why does singapore airline have old seats I new planes? What happened to the earlier leader? Friendly staff alone does not make the deal. And given ticket prices SQ is not attractive any more for me."

Cons: "Seat not great for my length even though it was business class"
Pros: "For as long 14 hour journey they sure make it comfortable."

Cons: "I️ didn’t like how close the seats are to eachother. I️ slept fine however I️ often found myself leaning on the person next to me . Also my neighbor kept coughing but that’s out of talks controll. Overall this was an amazing experience and I️ am happy. With yalls service."

Pros: "I actually loved the whole trip. The aircraft still looked like it was brand new on the inside even though I'm sure that it has probably been in the air for a few years now. The service was great from the seemingly effortless takeoff and landing by the pilots to the flight attendants being very efficient and caring. The ambient temperature of the cabin was great. I had a wonderful experience and when I return home I will not hesitate to book with EVA again for any of my international flight needs."
Cons: "It's not really even something that I didn't like because I know learning a second language is hard any way but every once in a while when the flight attendants made announcements they would either run English words together into one word or pronounce it a little wrong but I still could understand everything that they were saying. So if I have to suggest something that is all that I can think of and it isn't even a bad thing at all. Thank you for everything!"
Pros: "I love the price, all staff was kind and helpful and the seats are comfortable."
Cons: "I didn't like the food. Most of it made my stomach upset so I didn't finish and landed very hungry. The entertainment was limited as well. For a 13+ hour flight I was disappointed with the amount of TV shows and movies I had access to. I would still recommend EVA to friends and family with a warning to bring approved food and entertainment."
Pros: "the attentive service...quality of the airplane...food was excellent...lots to watch on the in flight media monitors"
Cons: "wasn't offered cocktail service...had to inquire"

Your staff is excellent -period,,!!! Its , hard to find better help , all,,, very professional, caring--, fast, great to work with such as over head, retrials, snacks, etc!! Thank you for a good overall experience !! John Carlisle NYC and Connecticut ."
Cons: "more vegetarian meals on an Asian flight would be smarter, as Asians are not meat mongers like us caucasians. The quality of food served is much above average airline food,,, you have a good vendor ,, much appreciated,, thank you . The cabin is cold more blankets ( I had none) most of us had nothing to keep us warm. thank you EVA for allowing us to comment, overall ,,you are fantastic !! John C."
Pros: "Oriental vegetarian meal was thoughtfully organized and tastes well."
Pros: "Food was OK, not much to expect from economy class, but at least the flight attendants were more experienced than the CGK-TPE flight in Dec 2016."
Cons: "Boarding procedure was a bit chaotic at Taipei, but perhaps the passengers were to blame. Overhead space seems limited on the Airbus 330, many passengers taking more space."
Pros: "Seats were fairly comfortable and there was lots of space. Good Inflight entertainment though movie choices were more limited compared to some other carriers."
Cons: "Not leaving or arriving on time."
Cons: "Qatar airways didn’t let me board the plane despite of all the requirements. Never flying again with them"

Cons: "I don’t know, but I always find it difficult with food smells, then make me sick and did today in the flight"
Pros: "Staff were very good . Business class very comfortable. I had low salt menu which was very comforting to be able to choose as salt not good for me."
Pros: "Great crew and amazing food."
Pros: "Crew was great. They made up for mistakes in a positive and amenable way."
Cons: "Flight was late. There was no communication about it. The flight from Joburg to Doha was late, therefore I missed my connection. The delay was not officially communicated to any of the passengers — no announcements made, no representatives to talk to at the gate — until well past the time that we should have been in the air. It was distressing."
Pros: "Nothing to like on that flight."
Cons: "Very poor customer service, Qatar Airways should be ashamed of providing worst than third world kind service in the Doha - Dhaka route."

Pros: "Liked comfort and srvice"
Cons: "Doha to Lahore flight plane was a bit older than Edinburgh was new and exciting"
Pros: "Flight was 80% empty, but it was amazing anyway, slept through most of it"
Cons: "Staff constantly woke me up for snacks and drinks, which is good on one hand but I was sleeping so deep that it was a bit annoying."
Pros: "Super comfy seat and entertainment, plus staff super nice"
Cons: "Too long on boarding"
Pros: "Good crew, fair choice of food and drinks and served whenever you want it. Good array of entertainment on offer but our flight was a 'sleeper' so after a fumble with the controls and the limited new releases, I opted to read instead. Not sure we like the Dreamliner configuration and levels of comfort more than the 777 or Airbus offerings but it was fine."
Cons: "A couple on our flight decided it was OK to have their 4-year old run around the cabin shrieking and causing a lot of fuss. Most of us in the cabin complained but these parents were pathetically weak and elected to allow it to continue. No sleep... spoiled experience.. miserable flight in this respect. Terrible Business Lounge 'Aspire' in Gatwick; dirty and poorly equipped - not even Prosecco on offer without paying £5 for a small glass. Qatar should stop using this dreadful place. Crew seemed to have stopped referring to the passengers by name and offer a less-personalised service in Business than we have become accustomed to. The food choices while good, have been paired back as have the selection of wines."
Pros: "While my Qatar airways flight from Houston to Doha (# 714) was almost perfect, flight #1335 from Doha to Nairobi was a huge disappointment."
Cons: "The flight attendants didn't seem to know what they were doing, food ran out before i got any breakfast, the IFE system for my seat didn't work,"
Pros: "Crew and their promptness to assist"

Pros: "Excellent flight attendant service. Some of the best airline food in the world."
Pros: "Seat next to me was empty, helping with the very cramped conditions. Great food. Movies were okay."
Cons: "Late boarding, then delayed further due to departing passenger. Delay caused me to miss my connecting flight in Doha. 5 Star Airline marketing is nonsense. Same cramped seats as any other airline. Boeing 777 is a disappointment. 787 is much better."
Pros: "I was already travelling 5000km so I didn't notice anything"
Cons: "Turbulences ... but it's ok."
Cons: "I was put on another flight eight hours later even though I had already checked in. I actually traveled with Cathay Pacific."
Pros: "Qatar airways is the best airlines and they serve you like a 5 stars hotel"
Cons: "The problem is when they linked a flights frome other airlines companies. Under ( one world ) On this flight the were linked with sirlankian airlines The flight was full and a lot of older asian on flight they don’t respect people and speak loudly The smell was not good enough"
Pros: "Good, attentive service by the crew."
Pros: "Ground crew was helpful On Time Flight Clean aircraft Good food"

Cons: "in flight entertainment interface can be improved to be more user friendly."
Pros: "Crews behavior was amazing"
Cons: "Menu/food Less choice"
Cons: "Seats in economy very uncomfortable for long Doha to LAX flight. When person in front of us reclines seat for entire flight, it is almost impossible to get out to stretch legs or go to restroom. At the minimum, crew should ask all passengers to raise seats during meal service as a courtesy to those behind them. This is done on other airlines."
Pros: "Crew had amazing customer service with a badly serviced plane"
Cons: "Was on flight QR 743 Doha to Boston. The pilot landed as if it was an afterthought In good weather, it sounded as if the pilot used the computer to land. The crew worked with great pains within a difficult situation. The flight was delayed by an hour, full flight had dirty lavatories without water from the get go! One of the middle lavatories could not lock! This plane should have been better serviced by ground crew before it departed Doha! Infotainment system is confusing, keep it simple and add more up to date movies. Even then, I will still fly QR over all else."
Pros: "Crew Service"
Cons: "If a customer has not ordered Vegeterian / Special meal earlier, the crew doesn't carry any extra meal."
Pros: "Ground Crew was friendly and did adjust my seating."
Cons: "Food quality was average. More choices needed."
Pros: "New plane. Decent legroom."
Cons: "Not enough food was served for a 16.5 hour flight."
Cons: "is it true that Qatar treats the passengers coming to US differently than the passengers going out of US. I noticed that the crew was giving menu cards for dinner when coming back to US. Food quality is very ad, quantity is small also. same story with snacks. they don't offer enough food overall. The crew should be trained better for int'l passengers."
Pros: "The QA Crew acted with courage during very severe turbulence, continuing to be professional despite injuries"
Cons: "QA HQ did not respond to the emergency with professionalism. They did a decent job w/hotel accommodation but only the hotel reception provided any communication. Only constant complaints led to food being provided at the airport after a 6 hour wait to board. No compensation was offered by QA when we arrived in Doha. Nothing. Exceptionally poor performance by an airline you expect more from."
Pros: "The plane was neat, clean and the services was world class. I was made to feel at home with service always at my finger tips."
Cons: "Nothing to report."
Pros: "Lots of leg space, good seats."
Cons: "Food could be better, much better."
Cons: "Seats, unfriendly crew members, worst food "Hindu meal""

Cons: "Seats on 787. Food in general with chicken main and bread from Doha very poor."

Cons: "Perhaps boarding."
Pros: "Flight cancelled with extremely poor service from Emirates."
Pros: "Friendly staff at boarding and on flight. Very attentive."
Cons: "Food was not as nice as other airlines and my 11 yo daughter was only provided normal adult meal. For full service airline actually went thirsty - constant water should be a given."

Pros: "The departure & arrival time. A fantastic price that included an excellent meal there and back, 30k luggage quota, entertainment that lasted throughout the duration of the flight. It just seemed seamless and felt like it didn't take that long to get there. I will definitely be catching this flight, every time I return to NZ"
Cons: "Very poor service overall"
Pros: "Lovely flight"
Pros: "Footrest would make the flight just perfect."
Cons: "No footrest. Makes it a little uncomfortable for short people."
Pros: "Flights on time /comfy seats and crew"
Cons: "One particular airhostess was little rude ..too much wait time in Dubai"
Pros: "I was upgraded to business class. Very nice"
Pros: "Aircraft and entertainment are still among the best , and overall it compares well to intl competition"
Cons: "Emirates of a few years ago was more comfortable and the rewards scheme was more generous. I hope they can think about giving Uae residents a fairer shake as we seem to pay a lot more for flights. Silver members used to get access to lounges but not anymore?? Taking things away feels worse than if we never had it before. Abu Dhabi Doha and Sharjah are all near and cheaper to dxb and it’s tempting to switch as they offer a comprable service. Also dxb is overcrowded itd a long taxi and walk depending on your gate."
Cons: "Poor service, host lied when queried on arrival documentation to avoid doing anything. Second person we asked was helpful and answered immediately. Plane was two hours late with no explanation or communication. I did not expect such a poor level of service and it my worst experience with emerits."
Pros: "one of the best flights I have had going to zanzibar"
Cons: "Late boarding. Thought I was flying emirates and turned out to be Qantas. Seats not as comfy. They lost my luggage. Took 2 days to get it back."
Cons: "Didn't leave the UK, volcano"
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: "Plane was almost full, had a spare seat in the middle. Meals were good. Staff were run off their feet but coped well."
Cons: "The flight from Brisbane to Dubai then to Barcelona was excellent compared to the return flight from Dubai. Dubai to Brisbane flight, seats were very uncomfortable, seat cushions were hard. Toilets ran out of paper and hand towels, I had to Inform a staff member. Cabin had a peculiar odour."
Pros: "Great legroom, quiet plane, seat free next to me"
Cons: "Not much"
Pros: "I didn't like disemabarking and being walked to a bus and then being transported to the actual airport"
Pros: "Flawless flight, great service, comfortable seats."

Pros: "The whole experience from boarding at DXB to landing at SEA was excellent. Crew was very friendly and patient and food was great."
Cons: "Very poor food menu selection. For an airlines like emirates getting even the basics for Vegetarian mean was missing. A wrap offered was no where close to edible feeling. in AVML meal ordered what was offered was Pathai Noodles and some oriental vegetable preparations with Indian Achaar. didnt make any combination what so ever."
Pros: "The business class seats were on the new Boeing 777 planes were very well equipped with the biggest screens I have ever encountered throughout my many travels. Service provided by cabin crew was great, too."

Cons: "The food was not great. The pheasant was hard and dry and my mums gluten free meals where not very appetising"
Pros: "Being able to sleep comfortably Great staff Food good rather than great but not easy on flight. Well chosen good wines. Chauffeur service to & from airport Ease of checkin"
Pros: "The plane was wonderful. Even in Economy, the seats were very comfortable with lots of room, both leg and seat. It felt like I was in Business Class of any other airline I've been on."
Cons: "My flight had a luggage limit of 30kg, which sounds good, until you find you pay per kilo, not per piece when you're over."
Pros: "First time flying in double decker plon"
Cons: "I would have been happy to receive points for travel on star alliance"
Pros: "enough leg room"
Cons: "the touch screen system was poor, limited movie choices, food taste, poor crew members etc"
Pros: "Crew and entertainment"
Pros: "Dubai lounge was superb, excellent crew."
Cons: "cramped business class seats. the 2-3-2 seating is disappointing for the price. Boarding announcements were confusing. we were told to be at the gate 30 mins before flight but when we got there 45 mins before they were already displaying final call which was quite stressful."
Pros: "Entertainment was very good. Enough variety to pass the time."
Cons: "The aisles were blocked a lot of the time making it hard to get to the toilets."
Pros: "everything from service, food, to entertainment. Keep up the good work."
Cons: "Seats were a bit small, if I had more room it will be perfect."
Cons: "The fact that I can only carry 30 kg and also that it is very expensive to add extra luggage."
Cons: "Layover time at the airport"
Pros: "Meals, comfort, and crew all above average."
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Great food, entertainment options and personal space"
Cons: "Crew left something to be desired. Didnt check on anyone or "make the rounds", I had to get up and seek them out. Went almost 12 hours between meals and seemed annoyed when I asked for food"
Cons: "We requested wheelchair assistance for my grandmother (3 days before the flight), but at the departing airport, the person with the wheelchair left early and we had to walk her on to the plane. When we arrived at Hong Kong, there was no wheelchair on the bridge, and after disembarking and being told to wait, it took 30 minutes for them to bring one. The ground staff kept trying to convince us to just walk which seemed very unprofessional."
Pros: "The crew went above and beyond the meet my needs. I requested the Cathay draft beer Betsy which wasn't loaded, unfortunately, but the crew managed to find one in economy."
Cons: "It was annoying the entertainment content on the A350 and 777-300ER were slightly different. I was watching a show but could not finish it."
Cons: "Extremely bad service at the ticket counter. Really disappointed, really disappointed"
Cons: "More regional movies for India"
Pros: "Airbus 350. Very good experience"
Cons: "Crew was jumpy. I expect them to be a little more gentle serving food."
Pros: "The plane was new and had a great feel. Pilots and crew very professional."
Pros: "The crew was nice and friendly, food was ok"
Cons: "Food should request order by the crew, rather then trolly push like an old style"
Cons: "Delay without infromation"
Pros: "The crew were friendly, the entertainment on offer was broad and appealed to all passengers. The meal choices were very good, I requested the LFML options and all were good except for the light evening snack at the end of our second flight which was somewhat lacking in flavours and variety."
Cons: "The seats in economy felt cramped on the Boeing 700-300ER, with not much room to recline. This impacted on ability to fully relax and rest on such a long journey. This improved on the Airbus 350 thankfully, which much more leg room."
Pros: "In flight entertainment was quite good"
Cons: "I was offered an earlier flight departing from London, which was good but was delayed in the end. But I was not told my connecting flight was changed too (new boarding pass not issued and I only realized from the baggage slip) - I had to pay 100 usd to change flights again!"
Pros: "seats are comfortable"
Cons: "flight as always delayed, food and inflight entertainment system choice are very poor - crew always on the PA for non sens announcement in 3 languages"
Cons: "terrible food - poor entertainment system with very mited choice - flight delayed as always"
Pros: "lost connection sue ro the Arline , terrible ground staff"
Cons: "lost connection sue ro the Arline , terrible ground staff"
Cons: "Even though our baby has broken leg our stroller was not delivered to Hongkong so we had to carry our baby whole afternoon on hands..also after arrival from Hongkong to DPS Bali one of our suitcases was destroyed- very bad experience"
Pros: "Service was very good. Food was decent. Surprised CX served dinner early in the morning Pacific time right before arrival at SFO instead to breakfast."
Cons: "There was an extra layer of normal security check at the HKG gate 15. The male team leader, probably in '50's, with two bars on his shoulder was extremely rude to the passengers. I was at the front of Economy class when a female Asian passenger walked up in the Business class ilne. He naturally tendered to her first and let her and directing her to a lower security ranking staff t the other side of area. All fine and dandy. But seconds later, a Caucasian male walked u,p indicating that he was with that female Asian, the security guard got real mad, shouted at the Asian woman who by then was some 20 feet away that next time she needed to tell him he was with someone. When it was my turn to go into the secured area, there were to guards available standing side by side, a male and a female. He let me and pointed toward the two guards. I asked him which one, he didn't answer. I asked a second time, "Male or female", he still didn't answer, just pointed his finger toward the two guards. His attitude was totally unacceptable."
Pros: "Smooth easy ride and great business class lounges."
Cons: "They need to cater for more Europeans in their food offerings. They also need to carry enough to ensure they do not run out. Bathroom locks require maintenance."
Pros: "Everything was good."
Pros: "The food was delicious! And they had a great selection of drinks at no additional price. The crew was very professional and welcoming. Overall so much better than any American airline I have flew with."
Cons: "Would be amazing to have a little more room in the economy seats!"
Pros: "Upgraded seats"
Cons: "Same Some staff still needs training, sinplying saying no, is not acceptable, finding a solution and working towards a resuloution is more acceptable. Better verbiage used, checking on food count making sure EVERYONE gets what’s printed on the menu. Asking everyone equally on the same roll is the rule of thumb."
Pros: "Cathay never let you down. Good service, great staff."
Pros: "Food is great!"
Cons: "Bathrooms are not as clean."
Pros: "Great customer service."
Pros: "Service and staff. Food was better than most and they weren't stingy with the wine."
Cons: "Plane seemed tired. The usb charger didn't work and the reading lights were impossible to use without putting glare into other passengers eyes. The seats were uncomfortable and their design made it difficult to stretch your legs out beneath the row in front. It was a 777 and I never find Boeings as comfortable as Airbus. Selection of in flight entertainment was limited and sound quality was poor."
Pros: "Great food, great movie selection."
Cons: "Delay in serving wine for 12hr flight, then did not refill wine with dinner service. Also ran out of breakfast dim sum."
Pros: "I was put on an earlier flight as they had a window seat available. Leg room was good, and the food and movie offer was better than last time."
Pros: "Food and flight attendants"
Pros: "Everyone that was part of the Cathay Pacific team was so friendly and helpful. They were very accommodating and quick to assist me outside the typical meal and drink service times. I flew economy and the seats were fairly comfortable. There were plenty of new films to choose from for entertainment as well."
Cons: "Flight was packed"
Pros: "Staff were superb from check in to landing. Service from MAN to HKG was impeccable."
Cons: "Seat was a touch faulty"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and kind."
Cons: "No vegetarian options at all for breakfast (was either beef congee or eggs, sausage and bacon). We were not offered any options to select meal preference during online check in either"

Pros: "Very quaint and hour flight went by pretty fast"
Cons: "Electric outlets did not work on chairs"
Cons: "There was no entertainment system built into the seat back"
Cons: "Treatment by EVA staff when trying to transit from Kaohsiung to Shanghai flight. Very incompetent. Take 90 minutes for them to figure out how I can make simple transit. Terrible."
Pros: "The service, the plane, friendly staff all throughout"
Cons: "The particular flight we took lands in LAX at 1420 hrs,, height of arrivals. Immigration took us an 2 hours to clear. Perhaps CX can adjust their arrival time by an hour or so to avoid the peak arrival time of many flights."
Cons: "flight took off 27 min late,sat in plane for over an hour waiting to go"
Pros: "The crew was polite and efficient."
Cons: "I had requested special vegetarian meal. Although I did receive this meal, it was barely a meal, the full course was not provided. Only the main course and salad was provided. The bread(bun) and dessert were missing. It's not clear to me why vegetarians would be deprived of a full course meal."
Pros: "Cathay's new plane's are great. Comfortable, lean back quite a bit, and have good entertainment."
Cons: "I wish they had a closer spot to immigration at Haneda. It's always a 10 minute walk."
Pros: "Crew was great, entertainment was diverse, blankets were comfortable, and food was good. I think I'll make Cathay Pacific my airline for East Asia US travel."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about it improve. It was an easy, efficient process to get on and off the plain."
Pros: "Great seat size loads of leg space and lovely flight attendants"
Pros: "The staff on Cathay, as always, was wonderful."
Cons: "The plane was extremely outdated - I felt like I stepped into a time capsule and somehow made it back to the late 80's. The seats were hard plastic, 21st century headphones didn't properly work because their inputs required two jacks instead of the now standard one, half of the seat belt had what can only be described as a fun noodle attached around it, and instead of the seat back reclining the actual seat just slid outwards, making you slouch instead of recline. While the staff was lovely, I honestly can't believe airplanes like this are still in commission. All it was missing was an ash tray in the arm rest."
Pros: "The meal options that were served on this flight were great, and the overall flight was peaceful."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to weather, and this seemed to frazzle the flight crew. Pre-takeoff service of water and juice or champagne was only give to one side of the premium cabin, and when I asked if they would complete it for the other side after take-off was told no. I'm used to Cathay taking our orders and being back what we ask for for a premium experience, however on this trip they just brought everything on carts and asked people what they wanted on the spot, offering no suggestions. Overall the service on this CX 889 flight seemed to be severely underpar for what I expect from Cathay"
Pros: "The entertainment offering is excellent and the flight schedule into Sapporo is ideal. The food was great and came out at the right times."
Cons: "Staff are not as friendly and knowledgable as other airlines I have flown in Asia."
Cons: "Seat back was broken and could not recline at all during a 13+ hour flight."
Pros: "Everything the movies the airline staff and having the electric plugs to charge ur phone"
Cons: "Poor reception checking in was told that I would have to sit middle seat all the way to LA. Not acceptable...my next trip to Southeast Asia I will be checking other airlines!"
