Cons: "Seats could always be more comfortable."
Pros: "I really loved that the airline accommodated to me being vegan. They also provided me with vegan creamer if I wanted coffee which was great. The staff was also super friendly which was a big plus because they were easily approachable."
Pros: "Overall flight journey is better."
Cons: "The person next to me asked two crew members what is inside in the sandwich as he is a Muslim. But those two gave different answers and confused him. So, he did not have it. Neither did others."

Cons: "Anytime I looked to get help from there non-fight staff (customer service, reservation personnel,etc.) I found them rude, short and unhelpful."

I didn't really like the selection for the Japanese and Korean m music with no CJ pop and Kpop like more traditional Japanese music like Koto and more traditional Korean music"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very friendly and professional. Made us feel very welcomed. Everything went smoothly from the beginning. From ticketing agents through the baggage claims. No problems locating our luggage. Everything was efficient. Will travel again with them when I go back."
Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "Not enough movie selection and the food selection"
Pros: "On both of my long haul flights I had very nice, new planes to fly on which were very clean. Staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating despite having a huge number of people to attend to. Food was good when I ate it. Seats reclined very nicely and there was the most room I've had on a flight ever. Still cramped, but you take what you can get! Would definitely fly again."
Cons: "2 complaints I would pose. 1. If we're flying on a super long flight overnight, do you have to turn on every light in the pane to serve food? Can we not keep it kind of dim while literally everyone is trying to sleep? Also, why are you serving a meal at 3AM?! I know we took off 2 hours ago and people may want food before we get into the bulk of the trip, but it's 3AM! Everyone just wants to sleep and now the lights are on and you're offering me a full meal?! Believe me, it's great that you're trying to keep me fed, but come on, we've got 12 hours of flight left to go! 2. The movies offered were really sub par. The "new releases' only had a handful of movies I'd even heard of before and only like 3 I even cared to watch. The "movie classics" were the same way. Gotta step up your movie options when I'm trapped in your plane for 14 hours."

Pros: "Great smooth flight!"
Pros: "The crew are very good."
Cons: "Entertainment musically restricted."

Pros: "acomodations was awesome!!!"
Cons: "temperature was not consitent"
Pros: "Service, friendliness"
Pros: "I was not expecting that it exceeded my expectations, it was better than my favorite airline. First time I ever eat all the food they served in an airline. The crew were excellent, they're always there- I don't know if they ever rested throughout the duration of the flight! Not to mention, they are all friendly."

Cons: "Lack of food option for vegetarian"
Pros: "Crew is rather polite and courteous."
Cons: "On-board entertainment system wasn't working until 5min into the air."
Pros: "Good service. All attendants and crews were nice and friendly."
Cons: "The leg rooms and too small seat when compared with the picture online. The entertainment didn't have many choices."
Pros: "A380 is great plane (this coming from a real Boeing enthusiast). Very Quiet! Coach had more leg room than I expected, especially for a non-US carrier. Good service and great inflight entertainment. The airline is not a US domestic carrier so flight staff might not understand every English word of a request but they try very hard. Most US carriers would not try as hard if I were speaking Korean! The whole world does not speak your language and remember that coach is coach for a reason $$$. Customs procedures are out of the control of carriers so comments about that."
Cons: "No individual control for air vent and it was a bit warm for me but most people were comfortable."
Pros: "I like all the email reminders and alerts"

Cons: "Slight delay in departure"
Pros: "I really liked the prices of the tickets for this trip, I saved money over the regular price plane tickets; since I had 2 long layovers in Seoul at Inchoen Airport. I love this airport, it is clean, modern and offers so much amenities for FREE. The best for my second time LONG Lay over. My firtst time was at an airport in Alaska which I completely forgot since it was nearly 30 years ago. The flying experience was totally good from flying from BKK as it was also a good airport. I also liked the services, the crews were courteous and helpful."
Cons: "Flights were full and of course I had a seat in seat 32E next to a man who was ofviously either sick or had a bad allergy, he sneezed and sneezed 1/2 of the whole flight when he was awake and slept most of the time so it was difficult for me to get in and out to the rest room. Luckily the people in seats 32F & 32G were kind enough to let me in and out (I got out mostly while the lady in seat 32F was getting out of her seat.) Mostly the other experiences were good overall."
Pros: "The selection of fellow PAX, the cabin staff"
Cons: "No supersonic flight"
Cons: "The delay of 2 1/2 hours was difficult Arrived at 2 a.m. and not 1045 pm. No reason given for the delay"

Pros: "I have flown with many airlines and Korean Air is by far the best airlines I have flown with. Great service, perfect locations."

Pros: "I like the food,the crew are nice and very helpful"
Pros: "We forgot our IPad in the plane. We met in Seol one of the flight attendants. She stayed with us and arranged for somebody to bring the Ipad from a different location . She refused to continue home , until she saw our property found. It wax an exceptional service!"
Cons: "The service on the plane is outstanding"
Pros: "So very accommodating and friendly. The standard for customer service."

Great airline

It is just a normal flight. Short flight. The Aircraft was bit older and was very shaky.

Singapore airlines has resumed after Covid selling premium services but not opened lounges to cater for the demand you cannot get a seat in their lounges and social distancing is non existent. I wouldn't pay for services you don't get so be aware.

Pros: "the crew is fine. The seat was OK standard."
Cons: "Food was not good on my way back to L.A. Food was no flavor, pork cut up way too big, prefer having small piece of meat soaked up flavor sauce."
Cons: "Having boarded at SYD, during the Canberra stop, we were all required to disembarked. It was a loaded flight so the process was slow"
Cons: "This time Singapore Airlines Staff seem to be not so helpful. Previously they were happy to help with smiling face and approachable immediately. This time in spite of asking for help in the cabin no one turned up even after multiple requests. I could only get help when someone one walks next to me."
Pros: "Flight time shorter than scheduled. Food good. Crew great."
Cons: "Somewhat limited recent release movies compared to Emirates."
Pros: "Amazing crew and service. My kids were well looked after in business class even though my 2 year old was a little sick. Book the cook meal was excellent and great entertainment options. Seat was enormous!"
Cons: "Nothing significant!"
Pros: "SQ always the best service"
Cons: "Good"
Pros: "Crew was very courteous, went above and beyond."
Pros: "Overall good"

Cons: "food was ok. A faulty entertainment system did make our flight feel longer."
Pros: "Everyrhing"
Cons: "Everything was fine."
Pros: "Seats are big as old plane"
Cons: "Very old plane, entertainment system therefore very old too. Service was slow, 2 hours after start till they serve dinner, another 1 hour to clear. No special boarding for staralliance gold members"
Pros: "The Staff was very friendly."
Pros: "Everything was excellent, and we even arrived 30 minutes earlier than scheduled..... super."
Cons: "no problems"
Pros: "Boarding was better handled in Singapore - but then that’s Singapore! All very smooth and French champagne served on the flight all the way home! The Kayak website is excellent and I wouldn’t hesitate to use it again - $1,000 cheaper for the flight from Moscow to Singapore than what I could get direct from Singapore Airlines! Well done Kayak!"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Food was terrible , crew were rude, there were delays due to airline problems at both ends of the flight, there was a complete lack of communication about the problems and how long the delays were going to be. Handling of missed connections was abysmal... Overall extremely disappointing."
Pros: "Loved the food/Movies/seats."
Cons: "No air vents and the cabin was very very stuffy and warm for many people. I’ve never heard one child cry for 7+ hours before until this flight. But everything else was decent to say the very least:)"
Cons: "No entertaining at all, only old movies. The seats are very tight. There was a guy snoring during the flight keeping everybody awake. The breakfast was mediocre, just a a bun with fruit"
Pros: "One of the best flights I’ve been on. The seats are spacious and the crew are very friendly"
Cons: "Reclining seats tend to make me caustaphonic with the limited space"
Pros: "Seats more comfortable than premium economy, staff more helpful!"
Cons: "Food was ordinary"
Pros: "Great amount of legroom in the seats we were lucky enough to be granted. Entertainment was good!"
Cons: "Frantic service from crew. They seemed anxious and rushed at all times. Food was also very average."
Pros: "Amazing service!"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "I am disabled traveling with my 96-year-old father. the Singapore Air crew helped us beyond all expectations on our 3 flights: JFK-FRA, FRA-SIN & SIN-DEN. most especially in Germany!"
Cons: "I need to upgrade our return flight SIN-LHR & can’t figure out how. also would like to modify trip, but it’s so difficult. deLancey Whitmer 1 (203) 838-6808"
Cons: "leg space"
Pros: "business seats were excellent"
Cons: "all was good"
Cons: "Food not hood"
Cons: "Boarding at Singapore airport was shocking, as we had to wait 6 hours for our flight. Rating low to the crew mainly because of the ground staff as they were not very communicative to begin with about the explanation for our delay. Only when the passengers got a bit more vocal about wanting explanations, they started giving us a bit more information. All estimated times given for boarding the flight were incorrect by a big margin! Seemed more like they were giving shorter wait time for boarding just to please the passengers, where as they were well aware of how long the wait would be."
Pros: "Liked the service"
Cons: "Nothing special."
Pros: "I liked there was entertainment"
Cons: "It was an old tired plane"
Pros: "friendly staff top Service top Inflight"
Cons: "new aircraft, 2 x usb charging ports, 50+ movies, very quiet aircraft."
Pros: "Crew very good as was entertainments system"
Cons: "You cannot disguise the age of the 777, 30 year old design. Noisy and basic compared to 380, 350."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and whole on ground process was efficient."
Cons: "Aircraft not as clean as expected from a flight departing from their home port. Can't put my finger on it, but standards have slipped for slipped for SQ, albeit from a very high standard."
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: "I got in some exercise during the delays and gate changes"
Cons: "Delay after delay, gate changes, lack of care from employees, missed a day of vacation in Germany, missed out on photos and memories"
Pros: "Staff were awesome. given that my wife and son both had food poisoning."
Cons: "But we were meant to fly on an A380. This was an A320. Nowhere near the same legroom. Less entertainment options. No USB charging."
Pros: "The staff were helpful, once I had complained enough."
Cons: "Aircraft was old, tired, and uncomfortable. The seat of my chair was not attached. There were huge comms boxes below every 2nd seat so zero legroom. Screens were so old they were unwatchable and tiny. Air Asia provides a superior service for a fraction of the price."
Pros: "Upgraded to biz class, which was fantastic"
Pros: "Great service and very friendly staff."
Pros: "The food wss delicious which was surprising. The lamb stew with fresh peas was delicious, and I don't even like peas!"
Cons: "Th entertainment system was old and tiny. Think watching VHS video tapes on a five inch screen. I think my phone screen was wider."
Pros: "The staff were very friendly and it was a smooth flight with a great choice of entertainment."
Cons: "However I don't eat pork & they ran out on chicken dishes so I missed out on a meal."
Pros: "I love flying by singapore airlines! Firstly because its direct flight from home plus service on sq is always impeccable. Plus i can easily order a singapore sling and a campari spritz, which is so nice while watching a movie :)"
Cons: "I didnt really like the food this time and entertainment on the way back was so sad! No new movies unlike on the way there :( dont really like being woken up for meals though, would be nice if they left a note to get a meal from them once ive gotten up. Coz i was trying to sleep so i dont get jetlagged back in sg. Which i did unfortunately :( not jetlag when i arrived in rome though :)"
Pros: "Friendly and approachable"
Pros: "Great staff. Aircrafts has more leg room. The food and entertainment was good as well."
Pros: "The ground staff in Sydney!"
Cons: "From the moment we checked in in Singapore there was no service. Having travelled first class and Economy before with Singapore I was very disappointed with Business class. My husband and daughter were in First Class. The service was below average to say the least - more training required from check in to on board - (in Sydney the staff on the ground went above and beyond) In Singapore it was very fake and contained no sincerity. The lounge itself was also ordinary compared to others, no Amenity kits or PJs in business class - even Virgin Australia has that! I was so excited to be travelling Singapore again given past experiences but now Im not sure I will want to fly them again."
Pros: "Service was good, but then that's expected."
Cons: "Leg room was bad... The foot rest attached to the seat in front of me kept lowering itself on its own."
Pros: "1. Clean. 2. Punctual. 3. Coke Zero."
Pros: "Aircraft was a new A320. Superb. Loads of legroom and extra width . Great flight."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "I like how everything went to be honest. No complaints :)"
Cons: "I enjoyed it all :)"
Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "One traveler was hit by car and injured prior to the trip. Could not get a refund from the airline."
Pros: "Their plane"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Crew were fantastic"
Cons: "Entertainment choices"
Pros: "Kind staff, long flight but the attendant were super kind"
Pros: "wasn't able to incline my seat..."
Cons: "being able to incline my seat..."
Cons: "They need to bring around water more often. And actually offer it to people in the window seat."
Pros: "My first experience in business class"
Cons: "Basic flight with no frills"
Cons: "Perfect flight. Delicious meals. Great crew."
Pros: "Safety"
Cons: "The flight was not on time There was no food on the plane for us even though we paid “full service carrier” price There were very few free movies!!! This is horrible. We wished we’d flown with Jetstar - lack of everything like with air New Zealand but at least the price would be much lower!"
Pros: "on time, crew were friendly"
Cons: "have to pay to watch movie"
Pros: "None"
Cons: "When I booked this fly, no one tell me check in luggage has to be charged"
Pros: "Excellent attendants"
Cons: "Landing was a bit bumpy!"
Pros: "The boarding process was nice because Star Alliance gold members can board early and get miles for the flights. They also had lots of movie options. Decent flight."
Cons: "I bought my ticket on kayak because on the search filter, it said 1 carry-on bag and 1 check-in bag but after the e-ticket was issued it said that it was a no luggage and no meal ticket. I had to pay excess in baggage fees ($100 AUD for 1 check in bag) and during the flight, all you get is coffee, tea or water. You have to pay for meals or soft drinks. I think if I bought on air New Zealand website, I would’ve gotten a better idea of all the fare types and pay a little bit more to get the proper amenities."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Pity that a light meal wasn’t served fir free but understand because of low price"
Pros: "service, food, good pilot"
Cons: "nothing everything just perfect"
Pros: "The crew were friendly."
Cons: "I was charged $120 for baggage to fly 3 hours from NZ to Australia, when there was no mention of it when I purchased and no indication of these fees in the booking info."
Pros: "Fantastic selection of entertainment, friendly crew, and tasty food. I’ve enjoyed flying with Air New Zealand!"
Cons: "The lumbar support in the seats is quite inadequate."
Pros: "No bags on an international flight?! I had to pay $375 for 3 bags. Last minute changes with a layover, instead of a 3 hr flight it was a 6 hr flight and NO FOOD not even available to purchase.... very confusing very disappointed...."
Pros: "nil"
Cons: "nil"
Pros: "The premium econ seat and services."
Cons: "The sold out flight to air New Zealand. Had to purchase bags again even though already purchased."
Cons: "Charged us for baggage, even though the flight was international and clearly stated on their website international flights included baggage. Had to pay more than we paid for our flights just to check a bag."
Cons: "bummed I couldn't even opt in or purchase wifi. being self-employed and having such long flight - its just a missed opportunity. the screens were hard to even see. it just kind of felt like an old, dirty airline."
Pros: "Comfortable"
Pros: "We fly a lot and have flown American, European, Asian airlines but this has to be the best experienxe ever. First, their checkin is all automated, even baggage. That makes the lines really short. Their staff standing by to help at every moment. When we used another airline in Australia Jetstar, we waited in line for one hour and then were scolded for being late! We even had to pay for our water and the staff took turn scolding us over our overhead bin stuff. Boarding of NZ airline was so comfortable, without pushing or crowds. Staff always welcoming you with a smile. Seats are wide and we were given free drinks, free headohones, and wait for it.... free dinner! And all served so politey and in the most gracious manner as if we were their guests. We were so taken back by their service and this was the aecond time we have flown with them in 10 days. My young daughter thought may be their staff gets paid more so they seem to be so much more happy. I also think that there is something when you dehumanize your customers by charging them for water and being uncaring to their needs. The staff also starts to treat the customers as cattle. Besides Southwest Airlines, I havent come across one another airline where the staff treat their custmoers with reapect while charging them for water. So airlines, take note. I would pay $50 per ticket extra just to be in NZ airline."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Flight was okay. Short enough that small space was manageable."
Cons: "Would have liked in flight entertainment"
Pros: "Efficient"
Cons: "Check In Issues related to code share flight"
Pros: "Good thing, we got there."
Cons: "The flight attendants did nothing and told us we had to buy water. Really?? We were over charged for our baggage by a long shot. You sell cheap flights but by the time you pay for bags it is no longer a deal."
Pros: "$220 to take an extra bag. This is stupid. Why no disclosure about bag fees"
Pros: "Not much to like with the cattle car ride that was an hour late."
Cons: "I was shocked at the baggage charge upon checking in and was told I just purchased a seat from Virgin Australia but no baggage transport with the flight. When kayak directed me to VA, I made the purchase and certainly did not remember being offered a chance to purchase baggage fee as other airlines offer (e.g. BA). While I understand kayak refer users to search airlines baggage fees it need to make sure that airlines offer true and baggage fees at the time of purchase so the full cost of flight is clear at purchase time."
Pros: "The crew was very nice, and I loved the entertainment options."
Pros: "We did not use the food or entertainment"
Pros: "The plane and staff were very welcoming."
Cons: "The connection was very tight. Luggage was lost, but was sent to us the same day. It was left in Auckland,accidentally."
Pros: "Crew are good, TV shows are included"
Cons: "Charging for movies seems a bit too low cost!"
Pros: "Love the variety of movies etc available on every flight."
Pros: "Very friendly crew, clean and comfortable."
Pros: "It was okay, we made it to Sydney safe and sound, but I'd expect that anyway. We had works deluxe seats. Food was terrible service was on par with the terrible American carriers. The very first New Zealand air flight apparently set the bar too high. It was fantastic! The other 3 were nothing in comparison."
Cons: "Staff was not friendly or attentive."
Cons: "Slow service and delay exiting"
Pros: "Awesome crew! Tasty food! Comfy seats!"
Pros: ".."
Cons: "."
Pros: "Very helpful check-in staff helped me arrange to sit with a friend on the trip."
Cons: "My first seat had a broken entertainment system but I was quickly moved to a new seat."
Pros: "Lots of entertainment options and friendly crew."
Cons: "I got upgraded to business :)"
Pros: "Generally like the airline, and Auckland airport. The crew onboard was great, but the guy that helped me check in, and the guy that took my money for the extra rad fee were rude and bad with communicating with both me and each other. Seemed a bit clueless really."
Cons: "That I got charged $140 extra to check a bag even though it all fit under my allowed weight. Very unhappy about that."
Pros: "Loved the landing lollies :) I was in a comfortable seat for a 3.5hr flight, and the entertainment system was on par with Qantas. I've long been a staunch Qantas traveller but will remain open to air NZ when travelling to NZ in future."
Pros: "Friendly staff, new aircraft, great food"
Cons: "Just some help with hand luggage"
Cons: "The flight crew and gate crew were the rudest I have seen in my entire life. They acted as if they were too good to acknowledge passengers and ignored the flight attendant light and other efforts to get their attention to ask a question."
Pros: "Seats comfortable. Entertainment was extensive. Food was good!"
Cons: "Landing was rough!"
Pros: "The crew was on point and did there jobs well."
Cons: "The food was old fashioned and stuck in the 1960s. Having an option of Beef brisket or Salmon or two polarizing choices. I opted for the brisket and it was decent but not actually worth finishing. It was too fatty and strange tasting. Boarding in Sydney needs much improved screens and communication."
Pros: "Crew was super nice and accommodating. Entertainment was the best selection I’ve ever seen."
Cons: "It was impressive. Can’t yhink of anything."
Pros: "The service, food , amenities were all A +++"
Cons: "2 hour delay sitting in Bangkok airport due to sick passengers and their luggage getting off"
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Comfortable."
Pros: "Crew were more friendly from Dubai to Sydney than on other Emirates flights."
Cons: "Screaming kids for whole 14 hours!"
Cons: "Only one thing thaar I'd suggest as an improvements would be to provide water on a mores frequently basis"
Pros: "Information from the captain"
Cons: "Serving alcohol to someone who had consumed a lot, difficult for the crew to know though."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The flight certainly lived up to its reputation as being one of the nicest airlines to fly, even in being in economy. Great service, great food, great on board entertainment."
Cons: "There was an incident prior to take off where a passenger in first class had to be removed from the plane. Though it’s certainly not the airlines fault that there was an issue with a passenger, they should’ve been a lot more transparent and gave us a lot more information on what exactly was going on other then “we need to go back to a special area to get this passenger off.” Couple that with the security checks to “make sure there is nothing on the plane that shouldn’t be” and very little explanation of what actually occurred, it made for a very stressful flight. Not knowing if this passenger had made any kind of threat against the plane, or safety of other passengers... etc, it was very hard to feel safe for the remainder of my trip being left in the dark as the incident occurred in first class."
Pros: "The flight was incredibly comfortable, and Emirates reputation is well warranted. Service was impeccable and food was great. Seats were great, especially in business."
Cons: "Overall business class was great, however I didn’t like the placement of the remote at my left shoulder. I hit rabdom buttons a few times and it changed the channels and I would have to re-search for the movie I was watching. Everything else was absolutely perfect."
Pros: "Ease of checkin"
Cons: "Delayed take off Delayed baggage retrieval’s"
Pros: "Attention to detail Great Entertainment Excellent food Pilot updates on timing"
Cons: "Movie channels and music could be easier to use"
Pros: "This was operated by Qantas. Nice movie/music setup. Crew friendly"
Cons: "Food plentiful but meat was tough and pretty instututional in taste. Couldn’t eat but half of any meal"
Pros: "Nice airplane, good entertainment, good food, ontime service, pleasant cabin crew"
Pros: "EVERYTHING"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Crew were great"
Cons: "Boarding is chaotic. Why ask First and Business passengers to start boarding when all you are doing is getting them to leave their seats and stand up for fifteen minutes in front of the closed doors going out of the departure lounge?. This has happened three out of three flights and must be standard operating procedure."
Pros: "Best airline so far for economy long haul flight, was emerites flight"
Cons: "No Arabs on board but everything in Arabic, no real issues. Would have been hard for my Thai girl to navigate on her own"
Pros: "Decent food, real utensils, free wine, excellent entertainment system, free limited wifi. Try finding that on a budget airline"
Cons: "The boarding gate space was quite small and there was no separate queue for business. So you literally had to push through people who were already in the queue to board as a business class. There was no space to go around."
Pros: "Service is phenomenal, comfort of the seats and in flight entertainment was fab."
Cons: "Food was mediocre, but then again haven't ever had a wonderful meal on an aeroplane before!"
Pros: "Pretty uniforms and good service: Polite, gentle, helpful"
Pros: "They were on time and excellent service all the way. It couldn't have been better."
Pros: "I was impressed by the professionalism!"
Cons: "Chinese passengers passing gas!"
Pros: "The entertainment unit worked all good. The food was great."
Cons: "Flight got delayed. I can't say crews weren't kind but I was on another airline with much much kinder crews."
Pros: "The plane. The thoughtfulness of the crew. My seat's location. I was lucky to be in the front center! The flight information display. Flying at night across the Tasman Sea it was as though we were stationary (apart from a little vibration as we crossed the Southern Alps). Besides, the Air Bus is so quiet (comparatively). Oh yes. One other thing: the fare."
Cons: "We are vegetarians (not vegan). I wasn't keen on the chicken/fish option. But I didn't complain."
Cons: "The boarding process could be more organized and more smoothly."
Pros: "Food selection Wine not as good as usual"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic. Why usher First Class into an area make ten stand up for ten minutes before boarding?"
Pros: "I enjoyed the meals that were provided, the comfortable seats, and all of the flight attendants were very friendly."
Cons: "Headphone was taken by crew the moment plane landed."
Pros: "Great flight, very attentive staff, gluten free meal was not very good. At all"
Pros: "The service was the best ever. Business class: The floor plan of seating was smartly laid out with plenty of room for storage. People were not crowded together and the food and drink were 5-stars!"
Pros: "Really comfortable, good service."
Pros: "F"
Pros: "The economy was just as well served as Business Class. There were 22 different countries represented in the crew on the flight. We were served a hot meal and a cocktail. Also, had more leg room than normal. Very efficient boarding system, as well."
Cons: "There wasn't anything about the flight to and from Sydney to New Zealand we didn't like."
Pros: "I requested a blanket for my Son and was told there was none available....."
Cons: "On disembarking I notice a various overhead compartments with bags full of blankets. Why was a deny a simple Blanket? This is unacceptable in an airline that praises itself to be one with the best customer services.......Bad, really bad...."
Pros: "So comfy... Great service. Wished the flight was longer b"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Emirates is always excellent however the crew were not very engaging"
Pros: "La amabilidad de la tripulación, que sí el menú es completamente vegetariano. No como otras aerolíneas que te ponen manteca, leche para el café..."
Cons: "Todas las veces me cae muy, pero muy mal. Cuando llegó el momento del té o café, me dieron sal en vez de edulcorante. Demasiado condimento. No es comida para un vuelo, es difícil de digerir. Hasta produce síntomas de indigestión."
Cons: "We fid not enjoy the close proximity of several screaming children who insisted in screaming at all hoyrs, making sleep impossible. What was concerning was the reluctance of the staff to intervene. Most disappointing as we did not have any sleep at all overnight."
Pros: "Boarding"
Cons: "Toilets"
Pros: "Fantastic service all around"
Cons: "Seat could have a more comfortable bottom and IFE was a bit dated"
Pros: "seats reclined nice, movie selection great"
Cons: "i didn't care for the manner in which you are charged for baggage fees"
Pros: "The service for my granddaughters was phenomenal."
Pros: "Entertainment was good, staff friendly and accomodating,"
Cons: "Food was just ok, breakfast lacking, only given croissant and yoghurt, the angled lie flat beds are not as good as the 180 degree lie flats, would be nice to have complete lie flats."

Pros: "Amenities and food, customer service."
Pros: "Non-disruptive 15-hour red-eye flight from Hong Kong to New York was appreciated. Smooth and comfortable flight, no complaints here."

Pros: "This flight and seat was definitely more comfortable than going to HongKong- space was ver cramped before."

Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Food Crew"
Pros: "The flight crew were helpful and attentive. Directions were clear and the boarding was organized."
Cons: "The seats! The seat was uncomfortable that I had to use my U shaped neck pillow as a seat cushion. My flight was 15+ hours but within 3 hours my behind was killing me."
Pros: "They serve Baileys. I had a treble and then slept for 8 hours."
Cons: "I was served by the sassiest member of cabin crew. I think he thinks he’s doing us a favour by giving us such luxuries as water and food"

Pros: "Too cramped"
Cons: "Good flight"
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "After my flight from Nanjing was delayed the next two flights to Sydney been overbooked and I was put on a flight to Melbourne to then go from there to Sydney. No Lounge access possible and no food vaucher offered. I had to ask to even get a small food vaucher. Bad!"
Pros: "Flight attendants really attentive and friendly. Flight arrived right on time and at a close gate. Good food."
Cons: "Punctuality doesn’t seem to be a priority for Cathay Pacific or Cathay dragon"
Cons: "Worst flight experience ever-"
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Continues to be incinsistent and spotty service."

Cons: "Staff seems distant and uninterested at times."
Pros: "Short stop over"
Cons: "Flight stewardess keeps saying "we don't have this, we don't have that, we run out of it"."
Pros: "Very good service. Professional and friendly"
Pros: "Smooth flight , crew members were good"
Cons: "Food and chair space The head set was in a sealed bag , when I opened it I found 2 white hair inside !!! The blanket was soiled with chocolate in a sealed bag !! Delayed flight for an hour without timely announcement"
Pros: "Flight from Toronto to Hong Kong was late departing due to a snow storm. Most on the flight missed connections. Cathay staff were waiting on the jetway with plans for everyone that missed their connection to Sydney. Just impeccable organisation and service."
Pros: "Everything thing worked out well except for the food for my wife. Sitting all the way in the back wasn't that bad because no one was behind us and we could fully recline."

Pros: "On time Good service Nice crew"
Cons: "No in-flight WiFi was disappointing."
Pros: "My husband fainted twice and they are so nice to accommodate my husband to the first class section so he can rest and sleep well! Amazing crew and I thank each and every one of them for their concerns and kind heart!"
Pros: "Two security checks, one at the door of the plane where they take bottles of water that have been purchased after passengers have passed through immigration and security make boarding very slow. There is no priority for Premium. The staff are efficient but service is basic. No sign of staff except when they are serving food. Seats are fine for a day flight. The food is very ordinary and some dishes were not available."
Cons: "Not a lot of choice in entertainment. Some programs have been on there for years. Premium economy is not worth the extra money."
Pros: "From above ---to serve us, without getting sick, great job by the crew.t"
Cons: "They had us board from gate 4 and they added a security station and we wandered around trying to find the gate. Someone should have stayed out there to tell us why we couldn't even approach gate 4. It was total confusion being seated in gate 3."
Pros: "There was more leg room and the food was excellent!"
Pros: "Despite no preferred aisle seat and a last minute seat swap, the flight was comfortable enough to get some sleep. Enough space and a good temperature."
Cons: "An eye mask would help block the constantly flashing screens of the surrounding seats. Staff almost made an effort to meet a couple of simple requests but were obviously busy with other priorities. Food wasn't bad."
Pros: "Great seat size loads of leg space and lovely flight attendants"
Cons: "None"
Cons: "The cabin was very warm and uncomfortable. Water was served after 1hr of the flight"
Pros: "the staff very friendly and helpfull and always there to answer questions they handle some nasty lady in front of us very politely and settle the situation"
Cons: "the seats to close and tigh feel like sardines in a can"
Pros: "I travel Canada-Australia a lot. Best trip so far."
Pros: "I do the Canada-Australia trip fairly often to see my family, and Cathay-Pacific is my new fave. Cheaper than the usual, no problematic stops in the US and everything went perfectly smoothly. Thanks for looking after me!"
Pros: "Business class service was the best I've ever experienced from any carrier."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable! Cabin crew are not friendly, service sucks! Very dirty cabin. Very noisy because of crying children everywhere!"
Pros: "The extra space was nice, but expected as I paid for it."
Cons: "My wife's and my seats were sticky and difficult to recline. my headphone socket had lose fitting and neither the airline supplied headphone nor my Bose QC headphone were able to work constantly. The service from the two hosts was poor with very little to no engagement or pleasantries. I compare this with Premium Economy class flights with other airlines I have flown and I will elect not to fly Cathy Pacific again. I also found the food and the service below average. No option for wine on this flight, just red or white."
Pros: "I love the hot meal they serve."
Pros: "Seats are comfort"
Cons: "Considering travelling on business class, there were no more dinner for 2 people after 1 hour of sleeping. I though dinner should be on held when people were sleeping in business class. In fact, I am wrong."
Pros: "Good service. Love that you can have wine with dinner! Good size blankets provided."
Cons: "They called us to board early and then we stood there for about 10 minutes before they actually started letting people through the gates."
Pros: "Cathay Pacific is a great airline - good and plentiful food and drink and the staff is ever so friently"
Pros: "The entertainment on the touch screen is pretty good. Economy seats are pretty good and have decent leg room."
Cons: "The world is turning to vegetarianism and I think that all flights should now have a veg and non-veg option by default and it should not be a necessary special meal as such. The Ovo-lacto meal that was given to my wife and I was OK compared to the actual vegetarian option that was present on the menu. The airline should inform passengers in advance that a certain leg of the journey would have vegetarian options."
Pros: "Food, service, in-flight entertainment, and overall feeling of safety and comfort."
Pros: "The efficiency of this crew was unparalleled"
Cons: "This was the least friendly crew I have ever encountered! Save one young gentleman, the crew was in such a rush to be efficient that the customer service suffered. The head stewardess was harsh, stressed and completely rude with both her staff and her crew. She snapped at several people during the flight and everyone was put on egg shells - not so comfortable for a 16hr flight"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Flight was delayed out of Toronto for two hours and we sat on the Tarmac with no explation. Insufficient food for a 15 hour flight with no snacks offered except for two minute noodles in a cup which they ran out of. Catered mostly for Chinese passengers. Entertainment was very poor too, only a small number of English movies with the majority of entertainment in Chinese. Crew were rude and dismissive. Overall a great disappointment."
