I have guitar when I fly, they don’t allow to take the guitar with you on board even the bins was empty

Pros: "Singapore Airlines has everything worked out for you before you land. That's a great help. The stewardesses were just phenomenal and endlessly polite. I will definitely use them again."
Cons: "As much as I normally nitpick something, I literally have no criticism at all of Singapore Airlines. Everything they did was a step above everyone else."
Pros: "We had to come home 2 weeks early due to the virus, and Singapore airlines were brilliant at changing the flights. Even got upgraded to the extra leg room for free"
Cons: "The extra leg room seats were naff, I like getting comfy in a chair and these ones were not. The screen was too far away and the arm rests didn’t move. Also, due to my partner having to swap seats, I was sat on my own next to strangers. They slept the whole way, so the crew never disturbed them meaning I missed out on food and drinks, even when asked"
Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "In this fairly new plane, the rows of seats are so close together, the leg room is minimal. When the tray is lowered, you feel completely squashed in the seat. The food trays are not picked up quickly after eating."
Pros: "The crew members were really nice and accommodating."
Cons: "Need more entertainment selections."
Cons: "20 min late but acceptable for a 15 hr flight"
Pros: "Crew was amazing"

Pros: "Excellent customer service, helpful staff"
Cons: "Food was unpalatable - HNML. Needs to be improved, the beans in a tomato sauce looked like a tin of dice tomatoes was poured over the boiled beans. Chicken curry didn’t taste good either as it was over cooked. Didn’t relish the vermicelli dessert or the salmon. Thanks for the roll & lactose free butter, the cheese and biscuits"
Pros: "Service, staff, food, and comfort! Def the better Business class seats I've had. This was the A380 and, the first legwas a 770 but that was really great also. Awesome work Singapore Airlines"
Pros: "The attentiveness of the flight attendants and the new plane."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, punctual, helpful crew."
Cons: "I don't see the point in giving out menus for economy class, especially as it's only a choice of 2 meals and one of them wasn't available anyway. It's a waste of paper."
Pros: "Clockwork prompt"
Cons: "Mechanical"
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: "Older plane, entertainment system incredibly slow, plane needs tidying up, starting to look its age."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I took the 777 on my flight to Perth and the seats are so so different from the ones on A330. Don't bother with Business class if you are flying the A330. It's not worth the money."
Pros: "Comfortable, full service through the night.."
Pros: "Friendliness"
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"

Cons: "Flight delayed twice without informing us the reason, and after boarding, we waited for v long to take off also"

Cons: "Not enough quantity of each type of food. I did not get the cold noodle I want and end up eating sandwiches."
Pros: "Excellent seat and pillow cushion... The krisworld in-flight entertainment was extremely easy to use while still having a wide selection of films. The touchscreen was also very simple and did t require a great deal of force to press a button...the steamed towel given before take off was extremely relaxing and set a high standard of expectations during this flight. Almost all of the those expectations were met. The toilets were extremely clean and the service of toothbrushes was the icing on the cake. For my meal I ordered Indian fish curry which could have been a little more spicy (I am Indian so I eat foods with many spices)."
Cons: "I would have liked a wider selection of foods in the menu.. Limited options. Also, I had a 11:45 AM flight from BOM-SIN which was supposed to start boarding at 10:45, but instead we started boarding at 11:30 and took off at 12:10."

Pros: "The food was ok. It didn't set my heart on fire, but I did finish it."
Cons: "The plug to the ear buds was loose to the entertainment unit, and so most of the time I couldn't hear anything! When I could the sound was dreadful."

Cons: "Boarding is very efficient and well organized But when it is going to be an hour late the passengers should be told not stand there on lines with no information"
Pros: "Attention to detail, good leg room, entertainment options and a brand new plane"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Really recommended . Wait alittle longer but i got a free tour go around Singapore ."
Cons: "old plane, boarding ramp smelled musty, food not nice, entertainment system was old not touch screen, male crew not patient with passengers, drinks stingy(split a can of soda with other passengers, and gave you a 1/4 cup). When asked for more OJ with breakfast was told they would come back later(mouth was very dry due to the air). Not impressed as we paid good money for the ticket with the poor service"

The entertainment selection was great, boarding process was smooth. However, the staff were so rude, my tray table was broken so had drinks split on me. I had a child coughing on me and kicking me in her sleep. The person in front of me put his seat down so far that my knees were against the seat (I’m only 5’9). The person behind me used her tray table to sleep so I couldn’t put my seat back. She woke up for breakfast, by which point I wanted sleep so I put my seat back and she complained about it so I had to put the seat upright again!

Pros: "Boarding and Crew are excellent toilets are clean Gluten Free meals are available, that's a big plus"
Cons: "Lots of movies to choose from however I felt the choices were similar in a way! ( Example: you'll find the Drama movies are almost the same as the Romantic movies or the Comedy movies)"
Cons: "The seats on the 777-300ER were tiny compared to the seats on the A380 from JFK to dubai. My wife and I are both small people and we were cramped. This is very unfair to us and even so to larger people on such a long leg The entertainment screens were also very poor. Small, low res"

Loved the goodies for the kids, little blanket and scotch pad."

I was given aisle seats on both return flights so I could move about more. The meals were lovely. The airbus was good for peace & quiet from crying children."
Cons: "I had left an expensive style of neck/travel pillow i left in my Perth rental car but wasn’t supported to pick it up. I had to arrange for the car rental firm to post it. We had over 3/4 hr to fly. We were boarding. It’s a shame there wasn’t a quick way of getting my pillow to me without customs bureaucracy. It was a simple mistake. A toilet was blocked and temporarily unavailable. Some passengers were taking a long time and queues were building at different times."

Pros: "Great service from all staff ,"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Good attention from cabin crew and good food"
Pros: "The plane was very new and wasn’t crowded."
Cons: "The arrival time was slightly delayed but overall it was okay. The hot food again can be improved as the chicken dish had no vegetables (even though there was a side salad dish). The waiting lounge at Doha airport gate was a bit cramped, and the bus ride from the gate to the aircraft was also a bit long."
Cons: "I was put on another flight eight hours later even though I had already checked in. I actually traveled with Cathay Pacific."
Pros: "Good leg room. Food was best airline food I've ever had....... By far"
Cons: "The added journey flying around Saudi Arabia. Adds extra time onto a very long flight. Would put me off flying Qatar again"
Cons: "I had been told my checkin bags will be available at final destination but I had to pick them up at Delhi and do the checking in once more which was a lot of hassle with kids"
Cons: "No proper communication and very poor management. I was on an emergency and no one bothered to listen and all the passengers were sent .

Cons: "Chairs a little too small for long flights...."
Pros: "It has good sized toilets"
Cons: "Snacks and candy served we're of low quality. No prayer facilities inside the plane. They didn't allow me to pray though I got some empty spot to do so. They brought the issue of safety.

Cons: "Cabin was too hot and not enough bathrooms."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "my flight was delay 24 hours"

Cons: "I did not like the fact that on now 3 flights I have lost miles, as on every flight I have tried to sign on as a member or frequent flyer and on all flights, there were no entry forms. This is also after my attempt to complete one on line, which I have had no response to."
Pros: "on my flight from bkk to Doha all the flight attendants were very helpful. One in particular with the name Mary Jane, was very helpful and she stood out among the rest. Thank you for your kindness and help when I couldn't eat some of the foods on board. Whom can I write an email to so that I can be sure that she gets noticed for her work? Thank you"

Pros: "Friendliness of the crew"

Wi-Fi didn’t work. Boarding was totally confusing. Guy next to me took more then his area. Constantly touching me pushing on me. Had a bag blocking getting out. Almost fell. Crew didn’t help

being a flight attendant and using spécial fare I apreciate being treated equally to the other pax, the fact that the crew, when I informed them of my status, went to check if I had a good seat ( no one beside me, to be able to get good rest.) Those are important gestures towards the person. I look to more flights with KLM

They canceled our flights that went on anyway.

Dreamliner was comfortable and entertainment system good

Pros: "Seat space a bit tight . I should have upgraded to more leg room . Next time!"

Cons: "It felt strange that the crew members completely skipped over me when serving lunch and drinks. At least something as basic as water should be given to all passengers."

Pros: "Flight crew; legroom even in cheap seats."
Cons: "Exceptionally unhelpful customer service when asking about extra kilos/bags. Just quoted the online info back at us. We simply wanted to know how much would be charged if the bag was 1-2kgs overweight. We could not get a straight answer, just quoted the unclear company policy. Extremely frustrating and annoying. KLM offer a superior flight experience - it is a shame their terrestrial customer servic does not match it!"

Cons: "Dutch sub titels would be nice."
Pros: "Excellent experience with the cabin crew."
Cons: "Seats on the 777 were too narrow. This 777 had a 3-4-3 seating arraignment, it would have been better with a 3-3-3, similar to a 787 configuration. With the current layout, even with an aisle seat, I was sitting in the aisle. And I am not a large person! The flight was full, so use the 787 and two daily non-stops. For a twelve hour flight, the food was only Okay, could have been better and with a better selection. Meal timing was poor."
Cons: "Service from airline host Poorly maintained plane Bad food Old entertainment"

Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "Bathrooms could be cleaner."
Cons: "Creaky seats in business class, below average selection of inflight movies and food that was substandard. This was a very oddly configured A330 with the seats in business way too close to each other. Every time they make an announcement you have to deselect whatever you were watching again."
Pros: "The crew are friendly and reliable."
Cons: "The food instead of salted peanut, it will be better if bread instead coz some of us got not enough time for meals."

Cons: "Worst food ever."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "The crew at the check in counter were generally helpful and courteous, however the staff on the flight we're often short or generally rude; thus continuing the airlines reputation for poor service. The food wasn't great either, but we knew to expect this and brought food purchased from Sydney airport (which was a saving grace)!"
Pros: "Overall all was good, except the flight been late."
Cons: "The flight was 40 mins late and because of that, I missed my connection from Hong Kong to San Francisco. Your company then offered me and my friend a hotel stay and transportation to and from the hotel., which was good. I appreciated your company taking care of us. However, it is really bothersome to miss an international connection to go home after a long trip."
Pros: "Crew was accommodating enough to provide for us during this cancelled flight."
Cons: "Better and open communications with what's going on. They were helpful and efficient but needed a clearer and more concise communication line to get us mobilized and ready to go."

Pros: "A mediocre flight is better than an awful one? At least we *had* an entertainment unit. And there was a USB outlet so phones/ipads could remain charged throughout the flight."
Cons: "Mine was a cramped experience in an old airplane, sadly normal for the industry. Food was bad. Entertainment unit was one of those press-the-screen-and-maybe-10-seconds-later-it'll-react types. Crew wasn't very communicative about what each cart rolling down the isle was for. Not a terrible experience, just not particularly good."
Cons: "Delayed"
Cons: "Their app is useless. Not user friendly and always down ! Their staff can't even give proper directions on what need to be done in terms of getting upgrades ! Such a shame how it this airlines is getting from bad to worst. They use to be great and my number one choice , but now they are just a disappointment. I am only supporting MAS because they are my national carrier"
Pros: "I like their timely service and cleanliness."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "They damaged MY OVER 400 Euro suitcase handle and said that they dont take any responsibility!!!"
Cons: "When they served satay they didn't ask which I prefer beef satay or chicken one even they asked it to other passengers. After finishing the dinner they took forever to clear a napkin so I couldn't find dinner was finished or not. It was midnight so I wanted to sleep as soon as dinner was finished. When boarding they do security check. It's OK. But why don't they use business class gate even there was the one?"
Pros: "Free beer and wine. For breakfast the egg dish wasn't bad. Good in flight entertainment"
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable after a few hours, not good for long flights. Seats have very little leg room so for someone over 6 foot tall it will not be comfortable."

Cons: "Crew Service is horrible. They get angry very easily."
Cons: "Sorry to say the flight is always late. From Osaka to KL I had to wait 4 hours to connect to the next flight to Jakarta. Than on the way back from Jakarta to KL the flight was late again I just nearly made it for my connnecting flight to Osaka. Overall it was ok but something must be done for delayed flights."

Cons: "No newspapers"
