Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Thank you flight itself was v good but not check in"
Cons: "Check in was terrible Long slow moving lines to just drop a bag! Can definitely improve as it is not like this anywhere any longer"
Pros: "The food. The nice crew members. The comfortability and service. The tech and entertainment available."
Pros: "Great seats and leg space in premium economy."
Cons: "We had the staff come to us twice to keep the "noise" down (we were travelling with a 2.5 yrs old). Now we travelled on other legs with Singapore airlines, with the same toddlers and same "noise" levels, but no one came to us to request to keep the noise level down... I am guessing that premium economy has a different (lower) threshold for toddler "noises" !! :)"
Pros: "Everything was amazing. Best flight I've ever been on!"
Pros: "The collection of movies in the entertainment system was very good"

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"

Pros: "Plane was super clean and comfortable. A long flight but we'll cared for by host."
Pros: "They were very generous with food and drinks. It was a pleasant flight."

Pros: "Kindy flight attedances,,smooth boarding,,delicious food"

Pros: "Nothing beats Singapore SQ!"
Pros: "excellent - comfy plane, great service, excellent stuff."
Pros: "Very comfortable. best airline I flew on overall and was first time ."
Cons: "Charges for extra bag was steep- $150. Location at LAX airport is far. While nice to have many options for meal but did not low-carb so I only ate half my food"
Cons: "Screaming children. Totally clueless, rude flight crew. Next time kids are screaming for three hours straight on a red eye, maybe offer the parents some assistance. Makes the “perks” like hot towels seem ridiculous when staff are completely indifferent."
Pros: "Singapore Airlines delivers as always. Friendly crew and clean and well maintained aircraft."
Pros: "The Staff was very friendly."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and professional and the amenities were top notch."
Cons: "There wasn't enough leg room. My knees touched the chair in front of me the whole time."
Pros: "Staff were very attentive and checked in on us regularly to make sure we had everything we needed. Food was great and ammenities kept spotless."
Cons: "First experience with Singapore where the crew made a negative impression. As soon as the plane pulled away from the terminal, crew members seemed rushed and frantic, literally running back and forth from Economy Premium to the galley gathering items. Approximately every 7-10 minutes, crew members would be running back and forth next to my seat with heavy foot steps, which would wake me up. I also noticed that certain crew members were shouting at passengers to get their attention instead of lowering themselves to be heard. One flight attendant almost spilled orange juice on me because she turned around too fast trying to serve drinks. I'm not sure if they were short-staffed, or if it was the influence of a certain crew boss, but something was definitely wrong."
Pros: "Everything about this flight was top notch. The inflight entertainment, touch screen and remote controlled, was so good i was up the entire time watching movies Black Panther, Downsizing, DeathWish, Pacific Rim and listening to the wonderful library of music, i was surprised at the range of music, from uncensored rap to big band."
Cons: "the food was mediocre at best - had to ask for water couple of times"
Pros: "It’s worth it to pay a bit more for the extra legroom seats."
Pros: "Seats more comfortable than premium economy, staff more helpful!"
Cons: "Food was ordinary"
Cons: "Flight attendants were bot friendly, appearwd to be botheted when askes questions or requests were made."
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"
Cons: "Food not hood"
Cons: "Seats in economic class are not too contraint in space, food was good and entertainment system quite nice with large si play screen and large movie selection"
Cons: "The seats and there is not much leg room"
Cons: "Lost our luggage that full with our winter clothing for the trip singapore airlines delivered to our hotel the next day and compensate us ¥jpn 12000"
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: "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: "Non stop to HK"
Cons: "Staff wake you up very aggressively when meal time. Other airlines leave stickers. This is a long flight, be respectful. Will avoid for future."
Pros: "Foot rest, large movie screen, good food"
Cons: "They ran out of diet drinks."
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 on-board crew was polite and humble. Food served was delicious and the flight reached on time."
Cons: "The flight was quite old, was a bit surprised as the route seems very busy. Our seat 36J and K interestingly had no windows. First time flew on a flight with no window row."
Pros: "The entrainment was amazing!"
Cons: "Seats were a little cramped"
Pros: "Great flight and entertainment options, friendly crew, free wine :)"
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: "I was unable to rate the food or entertainment as I didn't eat or need entertaining on such a short flight"
Pros: "What did I like - getting off the plane."
Cons: "After booking via QANTAS the seats allocated were the last seats on the plane and did not recline. One of the TV monitors did not work and the checking in at the airport was third world."
Pros: "Good options in entertainment but..."
Cons: "Screen stuttered and was unwatchable for the second leg of the flight."
Cons: "No in-flight wifi or video streaming. Lift your game, Aussie airlines."
Cons: "After waiting more than 5 hours with boarding and disembarking twice before the plane left, the plane was old without any entertainment. There was no food and the drink options were limited. For a 5 hour flight, it was miserable!"
Cons: "On flight bwi to dallas dec 27, loaded us, 2 hr wait in plane on tarmac, then cancelled due to storms and too many planes in dallas on ground. Removed all of us from plane to rebook, a nightmare. Then proceeded to immediately reboard next flight of passengers on same plane to same destination and take off. Return flight booked all at once, Sydney to dallas to bwi. Sydney flight late, gave us special red easy pass envelope with boarding pass to connect to dallas-bwi flight. We had to wait for luggage, then in line for customs, and another line for re checking luggage, then walk to next gate and another security line, and flight left without us. Easy pass did nothing for us. Missed flight by 5 min. Gave us the impression when we got off sydney flight they were going to wait for us. Waited 45 min for luggage, 20 min for customs and 10 min for security. If we had any special treatment at any stage we would have made our connection. Worst experience with American Airlines ever."
Pros: "Safety, solid plane, reliable, on time, felt secure on a flight unlike Tiger which had really a lot of issues with depressurization, weird sounds, etc."
Cons: "Travelled Cairns - Brisbane, and then Brisbane-Melbourne. Both flights same durations. On a flight from Cairns, we get beautiful quiche, hot, gourmet, pleasure to eat, and a cake. On a flight to Melbourne, we get miniature salty crackers and few passionfruit cookies. I know it's domestic flight, but on flight from Cairns we even had entertainment system with LCD! Quantas, are you holding some sort of grudge towards us Melbournians? ;)"
Pros: "i can say it was a fast flight"
Cons: "Flight was a series of late take offs, the food was really bad, people are so crammed in there is no space to even move around, one entire area was blocked with people's stuff which led to exit doors and this is not safe....time to demand airlines provide decent space to at least be able to cross ones legs, can't even do that anymore"
Pros: "It was easy booking with Kayak and the flight with Qantas/Jetstar was great. Good service."
Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "I was stopped at gate check in and taken to one side as the passport control had reported me for being intoxicated. I was injured in the armed forces and have a bit of a balance problem as lost most my hearing. I think drink alcohol any more. I asked for an aisle seat as I'm a big guy but was put on seat E next to a huge fat guy so was unable to sit properly. I couldn't get out of the seat once as he just slept and must of drempt as kept jumping and banging me. I had 1 meal on the over 13hr flight, which I couldn't eat properly as was unable to use the knife & fork due to the huge obese guy next to me. I asked the stewardess to wake me at all meal times. Which she didn't. So missed all the meals and tea/coffee. I was looking forward to the put a too. The London to Singapore flight was a total let down and I expected so much more from Quantus as they have always been top standard before. Overall disgusted in the service."
Pros: "Crew were super helpful. Have flown with other airlines, but have to say Qantas crews are very professional and helpful. They go that extra mile."
Cons: "The flight from Cairns to JFK that I originally purchased was supposed to be 7 hours of travel time less than what I actually ended up with. The airline changed my flights 4 times after originally booking."
Pros: "I liked that nothing was a hassle to get to, the staff were amazing and the pilot was well-skilled."
Cons: "My only con was the fact that there were many people around me coughing. That's not your fault though, I understand. But still, it was nasty."
Cons: "Leg room was poor. No entertainment"
Pros: "Good seat, great service. Typical quality QANTAS flight - perfect"
Cons: "Maybe the seat could have been more comfortable."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful, and the food options for vegetarians were great, and the entertainment selection was great."
Cons: "My seat did not recline, but I told a flight attendant and I was able to get a better seat."
Pros: "Very friendly crew, and super comfy flat bed in business class."
Cons: "On this occasion, Qantas delivered the goods!"
Cons: "Having back up/extra meals for people with dietary requirements as they may not have been able to request them."
Pros: "Quantas Entertainment app was great!"
Cons: "Quantas seems to have frequent gate changes. You have to pay attention. No WiFi in terminals despite posted signs."
Cons: "We boarded very late, and had no place to wait at the gate (it was locked off) and got no explanation. My headrest broke off midflight. There were no good vegetarian options on the flight, and the entertainment system was very old and hard to see."
Pros: "The crew were friendly and very helpful. Good choice of movies, tv shows, podcasts and music."
Cons: "When the person in front put his seat back there was no room at all for me. He had it back for the whole 12 hour flight except when the staff asked him to put it up for service."
Cons: "Arrival at Terminal 3 at Perth Airport was a real disappointment. It took more than an hour to get through passport control and customs. Woefully understaffed and exhausting after flying from Heathrow and arriving at 11.45pm. Makes me think twice about flying qantas into Perth"

Pros: "Comfortable flight."
Cons: "Food and entertainment options."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Needs vegetarian options"
Pros: "Crew was very professional and willing to help"
Cons: "Selection of movies not that great when you spend 14 hours sitting on a chair for that long you expect at least to have some good movies to watch ... that was a let down. Also everytime they served us food it seemed lime yhey didnt have enough of the choices we were given as the crew had run out of our choices all the time making choose things we didnt lie"
Cons: "I told Nicole that my sound wasn’t working and I had tried with 3 different headsets. She just shrugged her shoulders and walked away. Not good enough for the price you pay for Qantas. I travel with qantas all the time and have never received service like this."
Pros: "Normal standard for that kind of trip"
Pros: "We had an amazing crew from Sydney to Perth from the Captain on down. They were courteous, professional, intuitive and extremely helpful. Of the 3 legs on our long journey this crew was the best."
Cons: "The plane required the note book to view current movie but the note book has to have the app installed before take off. It was not properly draw my attention in advance via e-mail or text messages. For such a long flight, Qantas should have a better plane to server this route. Totally disappointed."
Pros: "Crew was great..easy check in for a techno dinosaur like me."
Cons: "Was not impressed with the seat armrests...but it was my first time on the dreamliner...usually fly airbus and sleep like a top !Would also prefer not to have to do customs till I reached Adelaide but thats just a minor quibble."

Pros: "The staff are some of the best in the sky"
Cons: "The usual riff raff amongst passengers"

Pros: "Entertainment was good. That’s was about it."
Cons: "The food was horrible. It’s hard to believe the airline would serve food like that. The flight is long and hard enough as it is. The “snack” options listed are not available. Only one option is available and it’s was horrrible. Also, a kid friendly menu or option needs to be available. The crew wasn’t very friendly either."
Cons: "Service was poor."
Pros: "No issues, quick and friendly."
Pros: "Quick boarding process, good food, and good entertainment selection"
Cons: "My headphone didn't work properly. The left ea side didn't have any sounds and the right side sometimes scrambles."
Pros: "Checking in and boarding was good and reasonably fast. Room available for everyone's hand luggage. Toilets were reasonable. Food in economy was ok."
Cons: "No hot USB port in economy. Inflight information system is old and screen resolution and contrast is not so good. Best to use own headphones."
Pros: "Best entertainment on the market, movies and music for all customers not only teenagers and families"
Pros: "Nice crew. Nice food. Nice movies. Smooth ride"
Cons: "This was actually promoted on the site as an emirates ticket and only after id purchased it did i figure out that it was actually for Emirates Airways sister airline Qantas Airways! I tried to change my dates after I bought it and dealing with Flight network -where i bought it from - was a nightmare!! I wouldnt recomment this at all."
Pros: "First Lounge is good."
Cons: "Seats are old, lumpy and don't work half the time."
Cons: "As above"
Cons: "Poor food quality. When long haul involves 4 flights in total MUCH more variety is required. When the snacks are predominantly cheese based, then that's repeated x4 Entertainment was poor. Not enough comedy, not enough documentaries and again by the 4 th flight, well just try to sleep as you've done all the good movies"
Pros: "The flight was not full. . I had 3 seats to myself. So very comfortable and the crew had plenty of time to give individual attention . The flight was very punctual. Arrived 20.minutes early ."
Cons: "The food was a little cold ."
Pros: "Not applicable"
Cons: "Lack of ability to cancel"
Pros: "I like it"
Pros: "Used their larger A380 plane Good boarding and inflight service"
Pros: "The flight attendants were mostly attentive to my needs not like a larger carrier. They were also very attractive . The boarding process was not all that bad and they waited for a flight that was coming in late verses just leaving the people stranded that was good as well."
Cons: "I ended up with a center center seat squished in like sardines. There was little to no comfort. Next time I'll pay for a upgraded seat or just fly another airlines. I'll probably never fly this airlines economy again."
Cons: "Unusually the crew were quite stand off. Normally cheerful and accommodating this crew gave you the feeling you were in the way and tiresome"
Cons: "Too much waiting in queues... Minimum of 2 hours of waiting, Too few counters."
Pros: "Food was great. Crew was very nice and it was a very comfortable flight."

Cons: "Maybe if me and my son was Muslim we would have been treated with dignity and respect but will not and wasn't"

Cons: "They kept asking me if I wanted every ten mins"
Pros: "Only I like the cabin crew. They were very nice and very friendly. This is the only thing I like about the Etihad Airways."
Cons: "More than 9 hour stay with no hotel & no food voucher before 16 hours flight . When I requested the customer service person he was very rude and with very bad attitude even the person was behind me he said the same thing. The food was very bad taste during the flight,coffee and tea had a very bad taste. Orange juice taste very bad too. No personal kit was given during the flight. Over all very bad experience. Please coney my comments to Etihad Airways."
Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "Being charged for extra weight when it use to be that weight .. I had no hand luggage and I noticed some people having three bags .. where's the justification in that"
Cons: "Etihad has gone downhill over the past few years and please consider this carrier as your last option for travel. They are simply not worth the money you save, considering the pain they make you sit through. Extremely poor service from the staff and they offer little to no option to you if the flight gets cancelled. They were not willing to accommodate my request to reroute to a new destination (which actually is cheaper than my original destination) as i was about to miss my consular appointment due to the flight cancellation and this was the only way I could make it. They outright said it's not possible, didn't even check if the flight to the new destination has availability or not. The staff especially at Heathrow is a joke, don't even bother reasoning with them."
Pros: "You know how it is. It's a long haul international flight and you're flying economy. NOTHING is ever good."
Cons: "Seats are super narrow, wifi did not work, food was quite poor."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was perfect."
Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "food and service."
Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "The flight crew was rude."
Pros: "Unfortunately our flight from London to Abu Dhabi was delayed and we missed our connection through to Melbourne. However because of the way they hsndled this the delay turned out to be a blessing! Etihad put us up for the 12hour daytime delay in the magnificent Marriot Hotel in Abu Dhabi. The communication and transfer were handled very well. It was a painless process and we got to enjoy a lovely rest before being transferred back to the airport and flying home. Pretty much a faultless experience and one that would see me fly Etihad again without hesitation."
Cons: "Whilst the food at the hotel was amazing, the same cannot be said for the plane! The food was very ordinary. The chicken pie was barely edible. In terms of seating, the seats are pretty standard long-haul fare. There is limited room but the issue is cushioning. They feel pretty hard and it was difficult to be comfortable."
Pros: "Staff excellent on board Plane very high standard"
Cons: "Waiting 1.25 hrs to check in in SYD- with 10 and 12 year old children Check-in staff member unclear on passport requirements"
Cons: "one and half hour late, barely made to the next flight!"
Pros: "Immigration at Dubai saved some time."
Cons: "Food was not good."
Cons: "Food is always the same. Fish chicken and beef with different sauces. Wine list not that impressive for a five star airline"

Cons: "Flight was delayed. Wait,wait,wait. Overnight stay in a HARD AIRPORT CHAIR."
Pros: "CREW SERVICE TIMELY NATURE OF FLIGHTS"
Cons: "THE LEG SPACE 1 OF THE MEALS"
Pros: "The airplane, the staff, the whole service."
Pros: "The crew were friendly and helpful. The airplane was spacious."
Cons: "My luggage is lost. I have to wait for 3 days for it to get to my final destination. That is very upsetting."
Cons: "movie selection poor."
Pros: "The crew was nice, there was enough leg room to where it wasn't uncomfortable for me."
Cons: "Food was not good. A meals was served only 12 hrs apart. There are jnternational travellers who feel hungry in between and airlin needs to be considerate of it."
Pros: "Crew are nice and friendly with huge smiles on their faces. They are happy crew and make their clients happy pessengers. Great service :) We will fly with Etihad again."
Cons: "My screen doesn't work. Plane is bit old. Lavatory is smelly."
Pros: "The very large windows and bathroom linoleum pattern were a nice change from what I'm used to with other Airbus and Boeing planes."
Cons: "The sink in the bathroom had a slow drainage issue and upon informing the crew, one attendant immediately went to check it out."
Pros: "The food was was alright."
Cons: "Major first flight to Abu Dhabi has been canceled. That took place around 5 hours. Then the whole journey has been rebooked and I reached the final destination after 10 hours of the previous schedule with lost baggage."
Pros: "Charged me for a bag from uk £108.20. Which I checked and call the customer service I leave if I get two luggage bags with me and they said I can but they charged me at airport"
Cons: "Then they did not provide a hotel but a sleeping pod and a cheap meal voucher. Aweful."
Pros: "The flights itself were not bad. Infact flying towards my destination we had a very pleasant flight. The crew was very helpful, and they have good seats as compared to most other airlines. The food was also good as compared to most other major airlines."
Cons: "However on the return trip I had to cancel my ticket and rebook it for a later date. So I was told the I would have to pay a difference of $770 for an upgrade to elite economy as none of the "normal economy" seats were available. This is a joke as the only privilege for elite economy was priority boarding. That to me should not cost close to $800. However I was desperately in need of a ticket and the normal economy was available only after week no matter when you called. So after paid for this rebooking after an already expensive ticket, turns out the "elite economy" upgrade was only for one of the 3 flights that I travelled on, which was incidentally operated by American. So after after travelling on some horrible seats and paying some $1800 dollars for a one way ticket I dont think I can rate the experience with even an OK review. Also it took almost one and a half hours at Mumbai airport to drop my bags off at the Etihad front desk for the economy class. Also for some reason they did not board based on zones leading to one long line at Airport prior to boarding."
Pros: "firstly on pressing the attendant light nobody responds nor come, after repeatedly pressing they come and switch it off but do not address the request. secondly always vegetarian food is short and not available despite of we requesting vegetarian food.they were not available."
Cons: "having to wait for the entertainment system to be switched until we get airborne. Most airline you can start watching a movie straight away."
Pros: "All except the space for stretching legs."
Cons: "Stretching space for legs."
Cons: "15 passenger has to throw their carry on bag as was fit in their measuring rack,charges was so high passenger decide not pay transfer to grocery bag or trash bag,all passengers came in different flight to Chicago was ok but from Chicago to Abu Dhabi in Etihad was .,,"
Cons: "I bought 5 tickets but was charged for 7. I submitted my credit card statement proving this. I called and emailed numerous times. I was told firstly that there was no overcharge and then that I had been refunded. 2 months after I bought the ticket and I am still waiting. My bank has not received the refund. I emailed customer service again two days ago but no reply. If anyone is reading this can you please please please help me. I even asked for the ceo's email and number but am still waiting. Please help!"
Cons: "Never take this flight from chicago to abu dhabi .. Airhostess will forget to give u meal .. If u r in economy they give u a damm.. They forget to give u water and when reminded they take 40 mintutes to get it . If u go to business class section to ask water they will shout at u that why did u enter this area.. No proper meals .patheatic attitude of staff"
