Cons: "On time would be better."
Pros: "The help desk employees who helped me rebook my flight."

Cons: "Entertainment including games such as backgammon, black Jack, and poker are not available although they are on every other airline I used with high quality game programs that are clos to live games"

Pros: "Extra touches and super pleasant and courteous staff."
Cons: "Aircrew took my carry on away while I was waiting to board saying it was too large; left me without the essential items I wanted during the 19.5 hours in the air and two plane changes. Other people were allowed to keep carry ons bigger than mine so I don't understand why they did this."

Pros: "Brand new aircraft, excellent service and food"
Cons: "J class seat, 12A window. Top of my seat curled around my sides, which blocked vision thru 1.5 of the 3 windows I had access to. The enclosure also protuded into my left bicep when I had my elbow resting on the arm rest. Table on my right hand side was too close to my body, and to high to reach a drink easily, I literally had to lift my whole right arm to pick up a glass."
Cons: "There was on flight attendance which I assume new. She was not able to manage to check with her colleagues whether there was still a food which I requested before giving me the answer. Also, to me little things like fold the cup holder before take off and landing is just a simple task to do without giving a lecture to the passenger when he or she might be tight up with kids."
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Seats, crew"
Cons: "Nothing else other than above"
Cons: "Mediocre food, lousy entertainment system that belongs to the last decade. Singapore Airlines has not been the premium carrier it was a decade ago and is now simply a so-so airline charging exorbitant fares."

Cons: "The movies choices in the in-flight entertainment were wanting."
Pros: "From the beginning until the end the service, the vibe, the flight itself was amazing. I don't know any other airline I flew with so far that hosted me and all other flyers better. At any time I was supported by the staff and even if it was busy they constantly had a kindness and smile in their face. I don't fly with any other airline on long distance flights! It was clean and neat on top at any time. I love flying with Singapore airlines. I feel safe and in good hands all around. This is how service should be at any airline! It is never less good but a constant since years! Thank you"

Cons: "Media choices were not interesting to me. Used my own device instead."

Pros: "Service was okay."
Cons: "Could have been more customer focused!"
Pros: "The Q-suite is exceptionally comfortable and the door really does make a difference. I usually have difficulty sleeping but the isolation from aisle traffic and ambient noise reduction was enough to allow some very good sleep. Staff experience was also exceptional - friendly and highly competent, looking to go the extra mile. Food was great and full menu available upon request."

Pros: "Behavior of the crews"
Cons: "Not enough leg room"
Pros: "I liked their customer service, food, and the flight attendants were friendly. They have a very nice shopping mall at Hamad International Airport in Doha, Qatar."
Cons: "They have less space to move your feet and after a while your left knee begins to hurt because you have been sitting in the plane for a long time. Whenever I asked to get a drink of water or soft drinks, it took the flight attendant 10-15 minutes to arrive with my drink. I understand she was occupied with other duties, but she should have made me her priority."
Pros: "I REQUESTED vegetarian meal and did not get, just veggies salad was given and staff was just saying they are sorry, that is all they can do,, Not even a decent dessert even after I REQUESTED again for it,, don't know if I will travel again with QATAR"

Pros: "I haven't flown with Qatar for several years, but my memories of an exceptional experience were replicated. Fantastic modern aircraft, brilliant crew and great food."
Cons: "Only one minor gripe, the passengers seated behind me talked incessantly, making my attempts to sleep impossible. I asked if there were any ear plugs available, but none could be found. My own fault, I should have packed my own."
Pros: "Nothing. As flight was rerouted and airline changed"
Cons: "We didn't like the fact that our flight changed to a diff airline when we paid to fly with Qatar"
Cons: "I am a very experienced traveller. I always book an isle seat, especially for long flights (this was 12 hrs.), so that I can get up and stretch my legs etc. The couple sitting beside me were upset that I did not take the window seat. When it came time to sleep, the wife stretched out over her husbands legs, who was sitting beside me. This meant her feet were coming on top of my legs, and her legs were forcing her husbands legs into my space, touching my leg - I had to put a pillow between my leg and his leg. I asked the Qatar hostess if she could please ask the couple to change their positions, so that my seating space was respected, resulting in no body touching. The hostess replied that she was not permitted to ask the couple to change their positions and be more respectful. Fortunately there was another unreserved isle seat and I was able to move. Due to the fact that airplanes have become cultural melting pots, thousands of feet in the air, I think it would be peacefully beneficial too all, if a very discreet announcement could be made at the beginning of each flight regrading seating etiquette, respectfulness towards others etc. this could also be printed in the flight magazine. Thanks in advance."
Cons: "Good service"
Pros: "I have shifted from shortest routes by flying through kuwait airways or pia to lahore just for comfort i have been customer of emirates but not anymore .."

Pros: "I liked the food, the crew, and the team at the airport was nice and professional."
Pros: "A comfortable safe flight. Steph was very helpful and nice and kept us updated when there was a delay on the flight. There were no problemsThe food was airline food and I don't really care for it but I don't think there's anything that can be helped about that. :) my face it was processed promptly and my reservation was handled promptly at the information desk ."
Cons: "The food was airline food and I don't really care for it but I don't think there's anything that can be helped about that. :-)"

Pros: "Crews behavior was amazing"
Cons: "Menu/food Less choice"
Pros: "Crew, food."
Cons: "Lack of communication. Flight was two hours late from Boston to Doha. Not once were we told about the length of delay or what we need to do about connecting flights. And toilets were very smelly right from the start as it seemed that itinerary has seeped into the floor over time. And there were only two items as a main course and one of them in very small quantity. I was told that too many veg main courses were loaded by mistake and very few non veg."
Pros: "On time departure, friendly crew. Comfortable seats for economy class, plenty of entertainment options. A pleasant experience"

Cons: "Narrow seats and little legroom."
Pros: "Staff courtesy."
Pros: "Excellent customer service, smooth boarding, good food."
Cons: "Worst customer service ever seen in my 15years of flying experience. Initially charged $1000 for 3 tickets for modification of return trip - confirmed the same and tickets issued (i'm fine with this). But, after i made arrangements for new date, I got a call saying calculation error and asked to pay another $500 leaving me no choices. How can such a reputed airline have no tools to calculate the pay? Other airlines offered one-way for half of the price i paid. On top of it, online helpdek promised front line seat to satisfy me but nothing was offered even if i ask explicitly. Simply declined saying i am not in priority list. Why do they make false promises? Friends, Just don't fly for food ....."
Cons: "JKIA airport was terrible. Staff were late to come to the check in counters. Why can't they be there earlier than one hour so we don't have to stand in line for so long with our bags. Totally shambolic affair."
Pros: "The Chicago flight was more than hour late so had to miss my cincinnati connection. Had to wait for 4 hours at the airport to catch my next flight- making the long journey even longer. No priority lounge access provided to make up for the delay. Qatar never getting my business again."

Cons: "Time of flight"
"Flight cancelled , no customer service to refund amount"
Cons: "All good"

Pros: "Good leg space and entertainment options"
Cons: "I was eligible for a complimentary hotel for my connection. However, in none of my correspondence was mentioned that I'm supposed to request a hotel ahead of departure. No emails from Kayak and neither Emirates. This is extremely disappointing and unnecessarily costly"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "There is for a 4 hours flight just a small snack - just like a local flight. Then there is no bedding at all, just a blanket. Very poor for a F-class ticket."
Cons: "My flight went well as there was no delay and no issues during the very long flight from Nairobi to Washington DC via Dubai."
Cons: "Evrything was fantastic"
Pros: "amazing customer service. great seats and interior. well on schedule."

Pros: "Food is good."
Cons: "Seats could have worked well. Infotainment could be better"

Cons: "letting people know that flight will be delayed ahead of time"
Pros: "Service & caring were superb"
Cons: "The snack was served not good and eatable. Emirates like one of leading air lines could have been served a better food. If it is cost cutting effort to serve a very basic snack like this, customers will be finding other air lines in the future."
Pros: "I’m glad the connection time was short and reached the destination in good time."
Pros: "Leg room was excellent I even enjoyed the meals nice to have real cutlery rather than plastic Very efficient and smooth boarding Return of checked luggage upon arrival was prompt and efficient Flight attendants were super conscientious, friendly and VERY professional"

Cons: "The free WiFi was limited to a small amount of data or two hours."
Cons: "Emirates sent a notice that the flight was cancelled on a flight from SF to the Maldives - with about 6 hours notice. They put me on a plane two days later. Zero interest by the airline helping. We found a flight on Turkish but paid an extra $500. Zero interest in helping. Last time sensitive ever on Emirates."
Pros: "Nothing, it did not felt like an Emirates flight."
Cons: "The ICE on this flight is ancient, the seats are narrow, food was okay, nothing special. This is an old 777, which needs a refurbishment badly. Boarind experience is blah. After checking in you find yourself in a waiting hall with all the other passengers."
Pros: "Great comfort and entertainment some of the best I have ever had on a plane. Will definitely fly Emirates again."
Cons: "Not huge fan of boarding off a bus instead of the traditional way from the airport terminal. Food selection could be better but overall not bad."

Cons: "Couldn't get boarding passes for all three flights when I checked in. Screaming kids."
Pros: "The entertainment system is good"
Cons: "The crew was poor. Didn’t appreciate when requested toilet paper in the toilet, as there was none. Ask for a snack as no food until 5hrs into the flight, crew were impolite and rude. The crew gathered in the gallery and chat among themselves. Very annoyed if you interrupted them, asking for a water."
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable"
Pros: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "Usually, on the night flights you get a small toileteries kit with ear plugs, eye cover and a toothbrush. I kind of missed that..."

Cons: "Lactose free meal was disgusting."
Cons: "Peanuts should be replaced with snack crackers as so many people can not eat or come in to contact with peanuts, it’s a health hazard and not healthy. Entertainment on board should have background music"
Cons: "This was a fraudulent charge!!"
Pros: "Staff were friendly and helpful. ICE entertainment onboard offered a wide veriety to choose from"

Pros: "The ICE entertainment program & the food"
Cons: "my TV screen didn't work"
Pros: "My first and hopefully not last flight on one of the world's best airlines."
Pros: "Caring crew"
Pros: "Everything except food"
Cons: "Nothing as such."
Pros: "The flight was superb."
Cons: "Nothing. Will always fly Emirates whenever I get the chance."
Pros: "We've flown asian airlines before, but Emirates is by far the best for international travel. Unfortunately we could not afford to upgrade to business, but because we let the Agent know it was our honeymoon he put my wife and I in a window and aisle seat so that we would have nobody between us. This gave us the extra room and comfort we needed. Also, they are a bit roomier than most planes with better leg room. They have a TON of free movies, tv shows, games, music and more on the plane. Food was decent for airplane food and they gave lots of snacks in between."

Pros: "Amazing crew"
Cons: "Missed flight. Misplaced checked bag. Filed complaint with Swiss."
Pros: "Food was good. Crew was kind and gracious."
Cons: "Seats were extremely cramped. Once the person in the front reclined their seat it was very difficult to get out of the seat. Also better guidance is needed during boarding. Finally, my hand carry was checked 4 times by 4 different people, which means your staff doesn’t trust their own colleagues."
Pros: "Nice cabin, clean . Friendly crew"
Pros: "on time, quiet, nice screen, fast luggage delivery"
Cons: "no foot step available at the seat, uncomfortable for small people who’s heels can’t reach the floor"

Pros: "Service was great and the flight very smooth. Great flight!"
Cons: "French unions"
Cons: "I arrived on Thursday, today is saturday and I am still without my luggage."
Pros: "The flight itself was very enjoyable. The only negative aspect was that the first leg of the flight was delayed long enough that I almost missed my connecting flight and my baggage was lost."
Cons: "The real reason for the negative review is a combination of the cost of this flight, loss of my baggage and poor service after the flight. I paid nearly $4,500 for an economy ticket from New York to New Delhi. The first leg of the flight, from New York to Zurich was delayed long enough that I made my connecting flight to Delhi within seconds of them closing the gate and as a result my baggage was lost. Once I got to Delhi I had to take a connecting flight to Goa and then drive an hour to my destination, where I was attending a good friend's wedding. All of my baggage was lost during transit by the airline, and unfortunately they never delivered by baggage to my hotel...so I was without formal clothes and normal clothes for the wedding for 4 days. The customer service line was no help, and the airline refused to deliver the baggage to me...the closest they would bring it was the Goa airport which was an hour and a half away."

Cons: "Ok, old plane."
Cons: "The flight was 1:20 hours delay so it arrived at midnight to Vienna. Even they refused to accept all the cabin bags on board. Very disspointed with Swiss. I’m flying twice time a week and I never experience so frustating experience like Swiss Air"
Cons: "I did not like they were so strict with the carry on luggage and stopped us at the TSA"

Pros: "Courteous, welcoming crew. All good"
Cons: "No entertainment"

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and professional lucky it was a short flight"
Cons: "The quality of the flight is cheap"
Cons: "There was no wifi available, the airline did not have a record of my request for a vegan meal even though I submitted one when I booked my tickets, and they claimed I did not pay for/reserve a seat (even though I had for the flight over, which I booked at the same time as the return flight), so I was stuck in a cramped middle seat for 8 hours trying to write a paper without the internet."
Pros: "Great flight, happy to have service from Zurich to Nis."

Pros: "Flight was safe and crew was professional"
Cons: "Seats were horrible for a transcontinental flight. I was squirming before the first hour of an 8 hour flight. Touchscreen of entertainment system was frustrating. Sometimes it responded other times not. Lunch tasted good but the snack, a calzone, was pretty bad."
Pros: "I appreciated the big meal, dinner, about 2 hours into the flight. Nice to have real metal utensils, not plasticware, to eat with. The 'breakfast' for the overnight flight was more of a throwaway: muffin, granola bar, fresh fruit cup. Nice to get wine, or maybe beer(?), with dinner at no extra charge, served from regular wine bottles, not individual-serving containers."
Cons: "$35 per flight leg (Lufthansa policy) to choose seats was distinctly annoying. I didn't know when I booked the flights, so the surprise $70 add-in (for round trip definitely would have figured into the price/schedule choice in the first place."
Pros: "Wonderful staff and service. Multiple snack and meal service very much appreciated. I love Swiss Air."
Cons: "I found the movie selection a bit limited for such a long flight."
Cons: "There is no question about check-in?? My ticket, booked through Kayak, did not state that no baggage is included. The Swiss air just said I should have picked it up from the booking and forced me to pay Euro 30, which I will claim back from Kayak. This is gross misrepresentation and on the same ticket flying a luggage was included."

Pros: "Food, entertainment, attentive staff"

Pros: "The flight from Dubai was fine. I am not a big fan of Dubai but their check-in and boarding process is efficient and straight forward."
Cons: "The food on this short flight was not very good and looked liked it had some age to it. I chose not to eat it."
Pros: "Sandwich was good and the seats had good padding and comfortable."
Pros: "Excellent service from ticket agents, cabin stewards, etc."
Cons: "Because we were late, my baggage didn't get transferred. I had to ask around to find out who handles Turkish air baggage issues in Tel Aviv. I found out within a out half an hour what would happen -- you had them delivered to where I was staying the next day. It all went smoothly and fortunately I had allowed extra time after I arrived ... no problems. And the people who handled your baggage claims were professional."
Cons: "There is no communication from the airport to the passengers making it really complicated to board the plane on time even while waiting for the boarding to begin at the gate."
Cons: "From more than 1h layover to 5 minutes."
Pros: "One of the ticket agents, Diego McNuss, was especially kind and helpful when we checked in. He is a credit to the company. Also, so many special touches on the flight, like the warm wipe and the bag with the socks, etc. Also very kind flight attendants."
Pros: "Always excellent"
Cons: "Late into the flight there appeared to be a medical emergency taking place just a few rows ahead of me. No announcement was made; it was as though we were expected to ignore the situation. But with the lights in the cabin turned on, a small crowd gathered, and the passenger being vocal in his distress .. . a brief announcement would have been nice: Situation under control, no need to worry, flight will continue as scheduled. The passenger had a relapse a few hours later - again no acknowledgement from the crew to reassure those of us who could hear his cries of distress."
Pros: "Crew was good Comfortable seats"
Cons: "flight was bit hot food could have been better entertainment unit touch screen wasnt responsive on flight"
Pros: "Service great."
Cons: "Seats were three across very cramped and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Friendly crew, entertainment system"
Cons: "No air or ventilation on the flight. I took four flights on this trip and all were hot and uncomfortable. Space was very tight. I’m not very tall, yet I was struggling to get comfortable or even eat in the small space of my seat."
Pros: "-Boarding was easy - The crew was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "- The leg spacing was not sufficient - The sandwich served was average"
Pros: "Crew in both flights were friendly. The service boarding etc was great. Flight was very turbulent."
Cons: "Passenger next to me wanted water constantly. The passenger on left of me constantly wanted wine. One got very little attention while the other treated like royalty. Unfortunately the African passenger who wanted water went thirsty a lot."
Cons: "collecting the food trays long after you finished eating is annoying. Tray keeps sliding at you."
Cons: "there was no in-time update on information about flight gate. it changed 3 times. result is i missed my flight and next flight was offered at US$1200 for IST-KWI sector where total fare from Toronto - Kuwait was US$ 1000 staff at Transfer desk was not co-operative and Sales office was almost empty. only 2 person there to attend many stranded passengers. staff was very slow to work and no criteria to handle those need help on urgent basis. most of the staff do not speak English and very UNFRIENDLY"
Pros: "Airport, Service and much more"
Pros: "friendly service, excellent crew, comfortable seats Actually it was my daughter recommendation to fly Turkish Airlines as she flies it almost exclusively We love Turkish Airlines As for Istanbul airport, I had an excellent experience while transiting. Well equipped, clean, nice restaurants and food Good experience overall I loved my flight"
Cons: "turbulence throughout but this is beyond your control I know, we just had nasty weather not on our way from Los Angeles to Istanbul though"
Pros: "Happy staff"
Pros: "Plane was more comfortable this time. I was able to put seat back a bit to sleep."
Cons: "Food choices were poor. For a long flight, it would be ideal to offer things for people with allergies. As a celiac, I was unable to eat most of what they offered me and there were not a lot of options. This is difficult on such a long flight."
Pros: "Nice service, good food and resolving issues"
Cons: "The fly arrived to late to Istambul which did not help much for the activities we were plannig.... space too small between seats"
Pros: "Pretty much everything except for the fact that they have no entertainment in Russian"
Cons: "Would not refund my ticket or make changes. Turkey is full of terrorism and all Americans have been evacuated from this country and the airline would not refund me. They kept my money and robbed me."
Pros: "the crew were great clean cabin"
Cons: "no entertainment systems lowered the food standard comparing to previous time I flew with them long boarding times"
Cons: "The people at Attaturk Airport Information Desk were not helpful. 6 hr wait with nothing to do."
Cons: "They moved the time up without prior notice. I could have lost the flight. They checked my bag in Antalya via Istanbul to Naples. When arrived in Naples no luggage. After long wait was told it is held in security in Istanbul. They should have not boarded me if they had problem with the luggage or at least they should have told me in Istanbul not after arriving at destination and have to search for an answer. Extremely poor airline and will never fly with them again."
Cons: "No entertainment."
Pros: "The flight attendants are very kind unlike the one with United airlines."
Cons: "Flight was delayed but that wasn't the main problem. Went to the wrong gate for my connecting flight, Turkish air rep at the gate checked my boarding pass, didn't say a word about me being at the wrong gate. Tgere was no announcement of any kind (found out later, Turkish sir doesn't do announcement at the Istanbul airport. No clue as to why). Thought, tgere was another delay and by the time I asked, it was too late to catch my flight and that's when I got a full dose of every single person w Turkish air trying to stiff me with the most outrageous penalty for changing Nguyen my ticket. Started out at $1114 on a $758 ticket, then went down to $925 and if I stay over night, down to $750. Seriously? Rude, talking down at me and telling me that if I don't pay the penalty, my return ticket will be cancelled. I keep getting bounced from one person to another being told to wait here and wait there then I finally got so sick of all of it, bought a new connecting flight online, spending the night in Istanbul and will see what will happen w my return flight to the US. I call this 'theft' as, if i buy an entire new ticket from Istanbul to Cairo then back to the US online, it will cost me less than the penalty they're trying to get me to pay. Shame on you Turkish airline!! You'd think w all the issues they're having w tourism in their country these days they'd care about not doing this kind of mistreatment of their clients."
Pros: "Reasonable good food by airline standard. Good entertainment options."
Cons: "Flight was.cancelled.because.of snow in.Istanbul. Fine, that happens, but only solution was to park us in a hotel and tell us to wait. I did not see any serious attempt to reroute passengers and l had to buy another ticket in order to be back at work in time."
Pros: "Decent entertainment system, reasonably priced in-flight wifi, decent food and friendly accommodating staff."
Cons: "Boarding process can be a bit chaotic, but they do well to organize it by groups or seats/rows, so still miles better than any US carrier."
Pros: "It was an amazing overall experience."
Cons: "Would have like to more about boarding gate earlier. But the process flowed very smoothly"
Cons: "Update your multimedia for entertainment"
Cons: "Staff was a bit rude"
Cons: "My Luggage did not make it, I don't have any information about it :) Lot of people did not get their Luggage"
Cons: "Called to change date. Thy did not take credit card payment over the phone for a stupid reason. Asked me to go to a thy office no later than 10.30 am the next day. Every airline grabs the money, these "very smart" thy admin has developed rules to make passengers' life's inconvenient. Highly not recommended. Lousy airline. Broke my luggage on top of this on my flight from Miami to Istanbul. NOT recommended. Refrain from even suggesting thy to your customers. You have a good name."

Pros: "The seat was comfort"
Pros: "I have traveled a lot during my life. The flight crew on this flight was the best I have ever seen."

Pros: "Food was great, wish gluten free had been an option! Amazing staff!"
Cons: "The movie selection was excellent. However, were those movies pirated? They had unusual openings that made it appear they were non-copyrighted versions. Not enough leg room."
