Friendly staff. Could improve on the leg room!

Good

The most I like from Singapore airlines is the food comparing to other airlines. Also found a good movie to watch. Sometimes it's difficult to find an interesting movie on many airlines.

The staff and service of SIngapore Airlines is hard to beat. They are excellent. If they could only figure out their call center fiasco it would be a top airline. Attempting to call SQ is like trying to talk to the dead.

Pros: "The ability to pre-order food helped bud to intolerance of good types. Crew were helpful in getting us off the place first because they knew were were short on time for our connection."

Cons: "The seats and there is not much leg room"
Pros: "Premium economy"
Cons: "This flight is on an old plane. The entertainment system was dated and the seats didn't recline properly. Food wasn't very good and they offered a very limited selection considering it is a 7-hour flight. Not worth doing Singapore Airlines business class for this leg."
Pros: "New plane"
Cons: "Nothing in particular"
Pros: "The attendants are pleasant to the eye, thats about it."

Pros: "New plane"
Cons: "Food served 40 min after special meals"
Pros: "The crew and inflight food and entertainment was good. The person on the transfer desk was very helpful."
Cons: "We were unable to use the website to check-in online, which meant we had to fly to Manchester to check-in. Which is very poor given modern technology. (We were able to check in on line for the flight from Houston)"

Departure gate is left overcrowded & creates a tense environment awaiting boarding. B777 business configuration or pig pens as I refer to them is clumsy, hard to access if you are large, claustrophobic & reverse facing in the alternative. If you are unlucky as we were to draw aisle 14 and reverse facing on both legs going over and returning then preferred meal choices are exhausted by time crew get to u & movie entertainment choice was exactly identical despite flights being 7 weeks apart. Crew abandoned us literally on return home leg when clear we weren’t happy. Won’t fly Qatar again if they continue using B777

Pros: "All great experience!!!"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Everything. Firstly the flight was delayed, these things happen but nevertheless I end up missing my connecting Qatar flight to Belgrade, put into a horrible little hotel for 24hrs without my bag, no clothes or toiletries. At one point during the flight once everyone had their chairs reclined one hostess told me to not put mine so far back?!?! Then when asked well then person in front of me has to move theirs forward and her response no they don’t. Absolutely shocking. To think I wanted to upgrade to business class. I’m traveling the globe over the next year and thought let me try Qatar but never again with this type of service and how they treat their customers."

Pros: "The new Qsuites are very comfortable"
Pros: "I got a very good seat."
Cons: "Qatar in Belgrade didn't tell me about alchocol bottle I bought in the Duty Free and that i could not go with it all the way to melbourne even bag was sealed and receipt was visible. I lost $ buying, because custom in Doha had to take bottle. Its not right. Qatar custom could see in Belgrade and didn't tell me and the same in the Duty Free shop."

Pros: "Good service and smooth flight"
Cons: "One hour delay and no entertainment in the airplane and small plane"
Cons: "Had an 11hr delay overall, 3.5hrs sitting on the tarmac only to be told to disembark for dinner at the airport. Then told that we won't be getting on until 7am the next day, but only really started boarding at 8:30am. By the time we were told about the reschedule to the next morning, it was too late to get a hotel room (too far away) and was told that I could use a 'Quiet Lounge' at the airport (which wasn't quiet). While waiting to board at 7am the next day, ground staff told us that they had to change the plane so there would be a further delay. On boarding, we discovered that it was the SAME PLANE."
Pros: "Food was excellent. Service was excellent."
Cons: "Entertainment was limited."
Cons: "Too many security screenings including the airline’s itself.!!!"
Pros: "Service, seats, beds, food, entertainment, EVERYTHING !!!"
Cons: "Internet kept cutting off despite me paying."
Pros: "They do not provide hotel service even in a 11 hour layover saying the ticket is pomotional. If that is the case, why they sell tickets on promotion? Cheap mentality"
Pros: "Every aspect of flight was wonderful, though I’m sure that fly"
Pros: "The flight got delayed for 4.5 hours. We didnt receive any call, sms or email informing us about the delay. We went to the airport for checkin only to discover that it was delayed! No justification or any reason were given to us. We are travelling with a baby. We had to get a taxi to return to our home and return back to the airport after 4.5 hours. Called qatar airways and send them a xomplaint email. No one cared to answer. The worst flight ever. Will never go with qatar airways anymore"
Cons: "Delayed for 4.5 hours. Extremely bad customer service"
Pros: "Staff very friendly. Loved the adjustable headrest as I am shorter and this is the first time flying that my neck was so comfortable I didn't need my travel pillow! Food was excellent!"
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "The crew on my side of the cabin was very good."
Cons: "Not having available air for the center seats made our flight a truly awful experience. The older style seats are actually more comfortable for taller and larger people. My wife was virtually ignored by the male crew on her side of the aircraft."
Cons: "Long flight on a 777-200. Crowded aircraft, crew not very attentive to call light, and food mediocre at best. Entertainment service was horrible, old movies and typical Qatar Airline selection of Bollywood films (Expected when flying from Doha, but not New Zealand!) Seat would not recline, but no option to move to another isle seat."
Pros: "Very helpful staff both ways, an experience that we rarely see in major airlines these days. We will definitely fly Qatar airways again."
Pros: "-Cleanliness -on time arrival"
Cons: "-Cramped seats I have flown long haul to Melbourne on Cathay and Emirates and Qatar airways economy seats were excruciating to sit in."
Cons: "I did not like the entertainment because it did not work well!!!!!"
Cons: "It was all good"
Pros: "excellent services from top to bottom cabin crews.Salute to Hats off them."
Pros: "Everything was excellent as I have come to expect. The business class seat was not one of those new diagonal ones, but made a full width flat bed, so I could sleep for a few hours. Food and service excellent."
Cons: "Plane configuration; seats were a bit cramped, knee space."
Cons: "I checked in a couple of hours after checkin open but unfortunately I could not get my preferred window seat, got a middle instead. But still the leg room would have been ok but the middle seat (second row behind the bilkhead row) had the front passenger's entertainment system arranged across the footwell, not sideways, so it completely blocked the footwell and prevented any stretching of the legs. I am a tall passenger and this caused much discomfort on the flight, I had to keep getting up to walk around. I also found the seat bottom quite uncomfortable (not enough padding I think), butnghis could have been made worse by the footwell issue. Regards Neil"
Pros: "The flight crew was polite. The plane was clean and comfortable. The food was well timed and delicious. They explained everything in full, and were extremely apologetic when there was one short delay. All of my planes were for the most part well timed (we had one short delay)"
Pros: "Cabin crew were excellent, very nice and accomodating"
Cons: "Check in staff and customer service reps were unprofessional and unhelpful. We had an 8 hour layover on both legs, no access to the lounge or a hotel was provided. I explained we were on our way to our wedding and it would be nice to have some rest. They were rude with the way they told us no, they even suggested we sleep on the floor of the airport. We ended up paying for the lounge, but then so did about 1000 other people, there was no room for us to sit together. My wife's allergy free meal wasn't provided on the first flight. We had to speak to about 5 people to get a meal ticket at the airport and they were very reluctant to give us one. I told them she was hungry and needed to eat. They told us we could take the meal we got with the ticket on board, when we went to use the ticket we had no choice in meal, were given a coke at 6am and weren't allowed to heat up our meal or take it on board. In summary, all the cabin crew on all 4 flights were excellent. Staff at Doha airport were incredibly poor."
Pros: "Truly give star service for business class"
Pros: "Food, service, staff at the counter"
Cons: "Cant think of any"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Flight left on time!!!!!! :)"
Cons: "Food was served too late. Unable to get a bottle of water as I was dehydrated."
Pros: "Crew was amazing and very helpful"
Cons: "The wheel chairs was a bit scarce so we had to walk far distances at Dubai airport"
Cons: "The crew was good, but the attentiveness of the crew on the second leg was amazing"
Pros: "The crew is good."
Cons: "The check-in is a disaster. A F-class passenger is treated as a Y passenger. Luggage limited to 2 pieces, even as GOLD FF, was made to pay US$200 dollars on a ticket of already 3,500 dollars and the price is the same for F-C-Y! The treatment was really commerce, as if the check in gets a commission"
Pros: "Crew was very calm, courtesy, and cheerful."
Cons: "It was my first flight ever. So it was perfect thank you Emirates"
Cons: "Check the head phone sets have both speakers working. I had to ask for a different set which was fine"

Cons: "The TV was small and poor resolution and brightness. Also no USB power at my seat."
Pros: "Boarding and Crew are excellent. That's why i prefer to fly with Emirates. Toilets are clean"
Cons: "On this flight, the Gluten Free snack wasn't good. Only one meal was served. For a 10 hour flight, there should be two meals. A snack was served towards the end of the flight. The GF snack was not good! it was two rice cakes with chicken inside. I felt as if they ran out of GF bread!"
Pros: "The food was nice and the crew were friendly."
Cons: "My screen didn't work properly and only after asking about it 4+ times were we moved to other seats. Unfortunately the new seats were double middle seats for my husband and I who left window and aisle seats respectively. Please fix your entertainment, Emirates."
Pros: "Easy check in and comfortable flight. The crew are very helpful."
Cons: "Couldn't get my preferred isle seat or sit with my wife who was in a different row."
Cons: "Very poorly organized boarding"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing. The video quality and sound were not great"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, enough space for legs, helpful crew, We were offered a voucher to stay in a hotel close to the airport to get a few hours of sleep or relaxation. The voucher included lunch and dinner with good food.."
Cons: "I didn't like the long delay to stay in the airport on hard chairs before leaving Cape Town. The delay affected all the other connections with long periods of stay in the airports. The whole flight was rough, being shaken all the time."
Pros: "Flight delayed 7:16 hours"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Flight attendants not friendly, some downright rude and looked like they hated their jobs (bumped into seats, rushed service, visibly irritated when people would ask for assistance), my video wasn’t working properly and was told “it’s an old plane, there is nothing we can do, it will be retired soon, we can get you some you some magazines”, food was terrible."
Cons: "crew doesn’t seem to talk to each other. advised multiple times that my touch screen didn’t work and that i didn’t want the jain meal. your check-in interface does not allow changing food preferences. this should change"
Cons: "The seating room in the 747 with 10 seats per row is limiting and uncomfortable. The passenger beside me was pushing well into my space, and the rambunctious flight attendants kept marching right into me and banging my seat with the cart, once also spilling water all over me. (Though she was very nice about it, and I wasn’t upset with her personally.)"
Pros: "Quality airline -new and clean plane with good seats and AV set up"
Cons: "length of flight...."
Pros: "Extremely courteous personnel at airprot IMECABLE service on board Plane brand new"
Cons: "That I had top travel to FLL ibnstead of Miami"
Pros: "The Crew on Emirates are just the best in the industry"
Cons: "paid extra for legroom but the legroom seats have a big disadvantage of no place to put things you need on a long flight."
Pros: "I liked that all the families were in a separate area on the plane. Food and drinks on offer good, baggage allowance good and the leg room was good."
Cons: "The delay to get on the flight, hard with a toddler."
Pros: "everything was perfect i really enjoy my flight with Emirates i recommend everyone to fly with Emirates best experience ever"
Cons: "The entertainment was giving some issues and the staff tried to resolve it. Eventually it came right by it self..."
Pros: "entertainment is great."
Cons: "completely full flight."
Pros: "Level of entertainment"
Cons: "My companion ‘s screws wasn’t working. The stewardess was advised twice but nothing was done"
Pros: "In every way this was an excellent flight."
Pros: "Nice ontime flight."
Pros: "Flight wasn't cancelled."
Cons: "Lengthy check in of baggage, followed by delayed boarding."
Pros: "Comfortable seat, even in economy class. Very quiet engine noise. Extensive in-flight entertainment. Attentive crew."
Cons: "Boarding experience was cumbersome and overly complicated. After going through the whole security screening process to enter the departures area (I boarded in Singapore), the whole security process is performed again to get to the gate. Why do I and my carry-on luggage need to be checked twice? Once at the gate, all passengers are herded like sheep into an area that has insufficient seats for the number of passengers, so many are left to stand or sit on the floor. If the airline wants to use a plane that carries 500+ passengers, then use a gate that can accommodate that number."
Pros: "Travelled economy and it was very good. Would love to try business class sometime. Staff excellent food very good."
Pros: "It was fine. Crew was pleasant, though obviously stretched thin. Food was decent. We ran a little late boarding, but they managed to take off almost on time."
Cons: "The 777 was crowded and had very little leg room. Our seats were worse than most, as they were over the wing which limited visibility and restricted the already limited leg room of that passenger even more."
Pros: "The cabin crew always smiled and were friendly. At no time did it appear that they were just pretending to be enjoying their job. They worked with great effectiveness."
Cons: "The sandwich served with mayonnaise and chicken was at room temperature. It didn't set well with my stomach. The plane landed and then parked so far away from the terminal. It took a half hour to exit the plane, board the non-air conditioned bus, and arrive at the terminal. The shuttle bus was extremely uncomfortable!"
Pros: "Very comfortable and good service aboard plane."
Cons: "Very long ride on bus from plane to terminal in DubaI. Very unusual and uncomfortable."
Cons: "debarking process was one of the longest in my life"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very cheerful. There was a good variety of movies and other entertainment."
Cons: "The issue is the electronics ban which is not the fault of Emirates. An extra bottle of wine was requested after dinner which never arrived. During boarding, it was difficult to know which group was boarding when."
Pros: "Friendly, accommodating, and professional service!"
Pros: "The reception at Dubai and delivery to the hotel. Friendly crew. Toilet regularly cleaned"
Cons: "Short on instruction on using the entertainment module. Having to repeatedly ask for water because it only came in small half glasses each time"
Pros: "Great service all round and lovely staff on board! A delight to fly."
Pros: "As comfortable as can be expected in economy class... more comfortable than other carriers to be sure. Service from the flight crewy was excellent. The food actually quite good."
Cons: "Boarding process is the one area that could be improved."
Pros: "Everything else was good besides the below content."
Cons: "The customer service. After the meals came I pressed my button for assistance and was not attended to at all, there was over an hr before our flight was due to land. I didn't want to move from my seat as the person beside looked busy at work and I didn't know where I would go because I couldn't see any flight attendants anywhere."
Pros: "Upgraded to Business Class. On a A380 its really significant."
Cons: "The crew was abit too talkative during non-service."
Pros: "I flew business class and they do an exceptional job of making you comfortable. Great seats that allow you to completely lie down and an attentive staff."
Cons: "The entertainment was surprisingly uninteresting during this trip. Previously it's been better. The food options were also not as good, but the food was a notch above most other airlines so can't complain too much."
Pros: "Seats are way better than other airlines and the entertainment systems is way better. Finally, someone decided it would be a good idea to provide power outlets in a plane. Why was that so hard?"
Pros: "Communication on phone prior to flight regarding baggage allowance & other matters was handled promptly & efficiently by friendly & knowledgeable phone agents. Ground crews in airports & at gates most friendly & efficient"
Pros: "By far the best airline, from service to quality, all around awesome."
Pros: "sitting and staff"
Cons: "food option"
Cons: "very poor food and seating"
Pros: "Loved the space and comfort and friendly crew"
Cons: "I travel overseas 1 to 2 times per annum. I've always chosen flights based on economical costs only, and most times disappointed by the level of service, quality and overall feel. This time recently, I chose Emirates airline and was impressed by their overall offering. I'm now converted and will fly Emirates ALWAYS!!"
Pros: "I liked the variety of movies and series and I liked the friendly Ness of the cabin crew"
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like."
Pros: "I liked everything particularly the spacious seats."

When boarding started, it was like refugees rushing to a life boat. Everyone was rushing to the front. Only one KLM staff standing there saying "... now is this group, yours is next,,,, we will call it out...." While he stopped some travelers, he did allowed some others passed without even checking their ticket. They have all the digital gears, and the screens to show the current boarding sequences, why don't they just use that. For some of us that did not have a excellent hearing, it was hard not trying to get closer to understanding what is going on.

Facilities for short connections.

Have people at the Westjet counter

Flight delayed 5 hours

Travelling from Nigeria was a nightmare. Those thugs at the airport gave my husband and i hell because we had our boarding passes on our phone. We had to keep bribing and begging them to let us through. It is the worse travel experience I’ve ever ever had in my entire life. And I travel a lot

Pros: "The space at my feet with the chair in front was a bit akward."
Cons: "Not being seated next to small kids. Perhaps they should have a separate section? ;-)"
Cons: "Lost a single baggage item, a car seat. Critical for us to leave the airport, and delayed us for over an hour upon arrival. Gave us a loaner car seat that barely fit our child."
Pros: "Comfortable seat, friendly crew. Crew were conscious of recycling which I like a lot as there is so much waste on flight. Anything we can do to reduce waste is very welcome."
Cons: "Food wasn't very appetizing, pasta didn't have much flavor and I don't eat red meat so the other choice wasn't an option for me."

Pros: "Friendly and efficient crew. I travel KLM often and always enjoy the flights."
Cons: "There were several flight delays and gates were changes a few times."
Cons: "I have ordered Wheelchair for my parents which one of my parent didn't get it on Mumbai Airport. When they arrived on Amsterdam Netherlands Airport they were dropped to the gate assigned first and once the gate changed on the fly no body came to help them moving to the new gate assigned which was far away to walk. Nobody even came to tell them that the gate has been changed. It was because of my father's alertness they didn't miss the connecting flight and when my father asked help to members on airport none of them helped my parents and other 4 co passengers which also were on wheel chairs. It was so scary experience for them that they asked me not to book any more flights with Jet Airways. I won't recommend Jet Airways to any of my friends for their parents to travel to USA. I strongly recommend you guys to take a strict action against this. This is so unacceptable."

Pros: "Seats were very comfortable, food was excellent, the staff was very nice, cabin was quite and roomy."
Cons: "No outlets to charge digital devices, and need more bathrooms on board. I was able to sleep most of the 11 hour flight so I did not take advantage of the entertainment."
Cons: "Flight departed 35 minutes late"
Pros: "We were fed a nice pasta meal and offered drinks twice. They also gave a muffin for desert. The flight attendants were very nice and attentive with cheerful smiles. I wish every airline had service this good!"
Cons: "infotainment was down. Lost my luggage the flight was delayed"
Pros: "expedited check in with nice staff. Security staff were pleasant, and the entire check in process for everything was easy"
Cons: "there was no lounge close to our departure gate"
Pros: "Cabin crew were very professional."
Cons: "Aircraft returned to gate due to fault and was delayed for 45 min."
Pros: "The staff the facilities the food all ******. Will definetly look forward to choose both delta and KLM"
Pros: "Pretty basic one hour flight so there's not much to complain about or praise about. I got some sleep which was good."
Cons: "The crew had their general Dutch aloofness on form. Chatted to one of the stewardesses in Dutch up until she saw I had a British passport then she decided she could only speak English to me."
Pros: "The supplied pack of toothpaste/toothbrush"
Pros: "Short-hop flight, fit for purpose."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful.food"
Cons: "Food was not upto the mark."
Cons: "KLM can't seem to figure out the order of boarding the plane. Should be business - priority - everyone else. Instead they do priority first, and that's usually two-thirds of the passengers. Also, really tired of the fake business class on these flights..."
Pros: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "The crew were pleasant"
Pros: "That we didn't crash"
Cons: "Being delayed and missing my connecting flight. No entertainment onboard (for hours and hours)."
Cons: "Pet was left behind at vacation destination as pet's reservation (made and confirmed through KLM) was not found at check in. Waiting for Customer Care to help get pet home and take responsibility for situation and getting no response. Very dissapointed, considering law suit."
Pros: "No chargers or tv on planes"
Cons: "At Amsterdam we were told that our checkin luggage wouldn't be at Sydney!! Some low fat meals were terrible!"
Pros: "Everything was good. The crew was very friendly and attentive. The plane was comfortable, with great entertainment on the personal screens. The food was delicious. Flight was on time and actually arrived early, but then we had to wait for a gate (not the airline's fault)."
Cons: "No complaints at all."

Rescheduled my flights without asking me. And I am losing money on reservation

Three hour delay on a 1.2 hour flight. Ground staff made us wait in the boarding area for around 2 hours even though the aircraft hadn't even arrived yet. No updates, no refreshments - not even water. Then we finally boarded to discover MH wasn't even doing meal service on this sector anymore. Just a bag of peanuts and tiny cup of orange juice. So close to five hours without serving water!

Cons: "Dinner was only one piece of pizza That’s it"
Cons: "Supper was very average , one slice of pizza , that’s it"
Pros: "Crew were good. Good food."
Cons: "For some reason, the seat was very uncomfortable. Rather hard with little cushion."
Cons: "Sitting arrangement Was poor. Five of us had five different seat. Missing luggage."
Pros: "Our luggage missed the connection but the situation was well handled"
Cons: "Entertainment"
Pros: "Ok"
Cons: "No"
Pros: "The MAS stewardess was really nice & helpful"
Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "The crew was excellent, however I had a very serious problem upon checking in as I DISCOVERED AM NOT ALLOWED A SINGLE KG OF LUGGAGE.THE AIRLINE ASKED ME TO INFORM THE AGENT WHO DID NOT MAKE IT CLEAR WHEN I WAS BUYING THE TICKET.THAT HAS COST ME A LOT OF ANXIETY AND BIG$$"
Cons: "TICKETS ON SALE THAT HAS NOT LUGGAGE MUST BE CLEARLY STATED THAT NO LUGGAGE ALLOWED"
Pros: "The crew was extremely hospitable, and the food was excellent."
Pros: "Crew is ok, accommodating, entertainment system ok, food ok."
Cons: "level up on the service, I think MH needs to take a second look at the whole company in terms of culture and level of service."
Cons: "Seat, food, service"
Pros: "Smooth flight, great entertainment"
Pros: "The crew were nice and good entertainment"
Cons: "Got delayed in kuala lumpa for nearly 5 hours with Not many updates fir us to know what’s happening then they left my luggage there and still don’t have it 15 hours later"
Cons: "Crews were only thinking of completing their tasks. I had been standing for 10 minutes in order to have the crews gave way. They were cleaning post lunch. I was told to wait till they were done."
Pros: "The cabin crew."
Cons: "Again, incorrect information of boarding gate."
Pros: "Most of it, especially having a meal on such a short flight."
Cons: "Could do with more legroom, tall people exist"
Cons: "The Business class seats are very uncomfortable. There's just no leg room space when the seats are flat and its very suffocating."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for more than an hour. We had problem getting the attention of the crew as all of them were just hanging around the galley."
Cons: "Cabin crew were unprofessional and not much caring Food was rubbish"
Pros: "Peanuts"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "Nothing i can think of"
Pros: "Larger seats"
Cons: "Food was below standards. Really need to improve."
Pros: "Not much. Probably only the check in from.Phnom Penh. Haha checked through to Melb"
Cons: "Couldn't check in online to secure reserved preferred seat section. No boarding passes printed on long haul section. Fight delayed, arrival delayed. No terminal parking for aircraft, which meant catching a bus to terminal. Not impressed at all. Why bother with frequent flyer class if it's not going to apply at all as business flyers."
Pros: "Good was great."
Cons: "Flight was late approx 1 hour. Seems like a regular occurrence which is not good"
Pros: "The entertainment, seat spacing"
Cons: "The gate"
Pros: "Nothing remarkable"
Cons: "Nothing unremarkable"
Pros: "Gate area was good, boarding quick and arrived on time. Crew very pleasant."
Cons: "Poor quality food especially the breakfast "snack". Unable to take water on board and tiny serves of water and other drinks left us dehydrated. Far too many ads at the start of entertainmen. Repeated for each selection."
Cons: "3 hour delay Food quality could have been better"
Cons: "The quality of the in-flight meal (noodles and fish) very poor!"
Pros: "Free beer and wine. Good inflight entertainment. Food ok."
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable and not enough leg room for someone 6'02". They ran out of the chicken meal and I was stuck with the fish which wasn't that great."
Pros: "The cabin crew was welcoming. The flight itself was smooth and on time."
Cons: "The smell of the toilets were really bad. Urine on the floor. I know I purchased economy class tickets but I expect the toilet facility to be better maintained."
Pros: "I appreciated the free baggage allowance and the staff were nice, but otherwise they were a huge headache to fly."
Cons: "They changed the times on BOTH of our flights by HOURS, which resulted in me having to buy a ticket with another airline to ensure we wouldn't miss our connecting international flight. Horribly unreliable, will never fly them again. Honestly airAsia was a better experience than with Malaysia Air"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Rude staff on ground and cabin crew. Delayed. Lost baggage. Terrible customer service. I would never fly again."
Cons: "It appears the staff don't want to be there, long check in queues, poor in-flight service, average food, not even offer water in-flight, plane was dirty, entertainment average, not at the standard for a full service carrier."
Pros: "There was nothing positive about the experience on this flight. With exit row seats had to stow luggage back in overhead holds which meant having to go back on landing, retrieve bag & for get way back to seat. Not Airlines fault but no gantry available on arrival. Up and down runway until available (20min) before we could exit."
Cons: "Fact that once again confirmed seating was changed from original booking. Extremely frustrating. Slight delay on take off. Had exit row seats."
Pros: "Whilst I realise this is an Asian airline the warm roll was very doughy & tasteless & the breakfast wasn't at all good."
Cons: "The warm roll was doughy & tasteless & the breakfast choice was not good at all. Would suggest a yoghurt & cereal option for non Asians."
Pros: "Staff are courteous"
Cons: "Departure was delayed an hour"
Pros: "The boarding and entertainment..."
Cons: "The food... and the lack of announcement to advise us on the delay"
Pros: "Service is excellent"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "On Time"
Cons: "No newspapers"
Pros: "Crew was efficient and polite in Business class. Lie flat seats were fantastic and cabin layout was great."
Cons: "Lack of movies compared to other carriers. Lack of food choices. Would have thought there be more local cuisine included especially for a flight emanating out of KL. Check-in at KLIA was pretty dismal in terms of the process - simply had no idea where to go even though I was in Business class."
Pros: "Much better than Air Asia of course."
Cons: "I dont know about the weather condition but I did feel a rough landing. I do feel the standard of the cabin crew deteriorating. Unlike few years back."
Cons: "Flight canceled last minute! Lost my connection back home. Still no news about pay back. Had to book another flight on my own expense."
Pros: "The korean spicy chicken was delicious!"
Cons: "The 2 male flight attendants who served our rows did not smile once. Very unfriendly and seemed like they just wanted to do the minimum. We were also extremely unhappy that during check in was advised that our seats were not allocated together when we booked the tickets together and are also Enrich frequent flyer members. We had to demand to speak to a manager for them to change our seats."
Pros: "All thing"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Was a little better but never flying that airline again"
Pros: "The plane seemed relatively new and the entertainment system had good choices. The seats were comfortable and business class was fairly empty"
Cons: "The boarding process was chaotic at best. The gate had long lines to go through security for 2 flights departing from that area which caused big delays. The plane managed to be loaded relatively on time but removing baggage from a customer who chose not to fly took almost an hour as compared to the 10 minute estimate. By the time we taxied, I was certain that I was in danger of missing my Hong Kong connection and asked the flight attendant to have the pilot radio American to inform them, I got the impression that my request was a low priority for the disinterested crew and, as feared, I missed my connection which forced a daylong wait in Hong Kong. The plane was a 737-800. Malaysia, unlike it's peers, flies mostly narrow bodies inter Asia as they disposed of all their 777's after the second 777 was shot down. I lived in Malaysia and Singapore for eight years in the late '80's and early '90's, at which time I thought that Malaysian was the best airline in the sky. Sadly, their present service is US airline quality at best without the general ability of US carriers to keep to schedule which makes them one of the worst in Asia."
