Boarding in Chennai is always hectic and unorganized. Not an airline but an airport problem

Boarding in Chennai is always hectic and unorganized. Not an airline but an airport problem

more leg room please..

SingaporeAir premium economy makes an 18-hour flight bearable The cabin crew was very attentive The food was above average. The entertainment options were very good.

Liked the boarding process. Seats and leg-room adequate.

Indian vegetarian could have ice cream for dessert. Would have been nice.

Not good

If they have fruits as snacks that would have been good.

Food could have been better. Entertainment was the same during both June and July. It could have been changed.

Leg room space and gap in beteen seats

Please update your meals plan for hindu nv. Also, I wish I had a foot rest for my feet. Great seat spacing/leg room.

Crews are excellent.

I rarely, if at all, leave any reviews myself but my flights (from SFO - Singapore and vice versa) were AMAZING! I was sitting in economy and the level of attentiveness that we received, I could only imagine how great first class could be. if i could fly Singapore on all my trips overseas I would."

Pros: "Thanks once again for a comfortable flight homs"
Pros: "Everything was amazing. Best flight I've ever been on!"

The flights themselves were absolutely fine, no problems at all. The situation at Doha airport was chaos with no one sure of where 'transfer' passengers had to go. There were boards pointing one way and Qatar Airways staff pointing another way. This was very poorly handled and understandably made many passengers anxious. I managed to rush to make my flight but that should have never been a problem as I arrived with plenty of time for my flight. The chaos at the airport caused confusion and delay which were easily avoidable.

All aspects are well managed and controlled. Nothing to complain about anything

Going to India from Houston flight delay 2.5 hr Tight connection 2 hr at Doha to Chennai. But the crew waited for the US passengers. International flight both ways drinks are restricted / limited. Whiskey they give only one shot. Sour throat and cough little more could have been better. Totally they limit on hot drinks.

Food could have been better..

Check in at Chennai was painful

The flight was good, however the food is horrible AVML.

Service is very good. No complaints.

There was an aircraft change (which caused an uncomfortable flight) in the last hour and was not given an option in advance to switch flights.

food could have been better.

We had a family traveling to SFO without wearing masks and I have to repeatedly request the flight attendants to ask them to wear their masks. It included elder people to children coughing and sneezing and my seating was amidst them. I had to request the attendant to find me an alternate seating, which turned out to be less comfortable, but better than my allotted seat.

Ok

Doha to Lax, airplane food was bland and pretty bad

Experience in IAD could have been lot better. IAD is one of the worst airport ik n terms of service. Chennai is also equally worst with too many bureacracies.

Pros: "Very helpful and kind crew. On time boarding and departure."
Cons: "If the crew cleaned the toilet more often and picked up trash from passengers and worked faster."
Pros: "smoothing take off and landing"
Cons: "Food quality and variety is not good. Also, their serving speed is very poor. Boarding should be more informed and more organized upfront."
Pros: "On time departure and arrival. Hard working crew members."
Cons: "No slippers for long flights."
Cons: "It was all good"
Cons: "maybe they can offer more snacks on the plain"
Cons: "Seat comfort was not very good.. and food was bad"
Pros: "Service and entertainment."
Cons: "Food."
Pros: "service attitude"
Cons: "Crew members are waking up for lunch and breakfast but not for snacks and other beverages. We are feeling hungry later. we aren't knowing when they ll provide."
Pros: "God was good. Staff was efficient"
Cons: "Seat comfort was terrible. Too narrow. Crew were efficient but were not cordial."
Pros: "Food was delicious as always the crew never disppointed me always made me happy there’s very very good trained"
Cons: "I have nothing I dislike from Chennai to Doha it was only 5 hour journey so I was so comfy"
Cons: "No internet"
Cons: "The food options was bad...during my trip asked for certain meal they claim that they are out of it. I also did not like how they check you into room in Doha & Chennai way before boarding time that time could have used for shopping instead of sitting in the room."
Cons: "Plane was full with some annoying passangers near me. The plane was not very new/clean."
Pros: "the attention in general for me was excellent."
Cons: "may be the fact that it was the same kind of food in both of the flights I had, is not that it was bad just in my opinion they should have more option, especially for south american people, thank you"
Pros: "This review is for return travel from ATL to MAA (Chennai, India) and back. Route: ATL-DOH: about 14.5 hrs; DOH-MAA: about 4.5 hrs; Likes: 1. Baggage check-in process was simple and easy. 2. Meal preferences was good - I'm a vegetarian and on the onward journey forgot to specify the meal preference but the crew had enough inventory to meat the requirements. 3. Every seat was provided with a small plastic pouch/packet/goodie bag that consisted of a eye mask (very thoughtful), pair of sock, toothpaste+brush (very thoughtful), hand cream. This was very useful and effective. 4. Entertainment - options were good and current."
Cons: "Dislikes: 1. Online check-in wasnt easy; towards the end of the process, there is an option to email the boarding pass but this never worked. Not sure if this is something to do with the browser (tried with Firefox, Opera) 2. It would have been good, as part of the online check-in, if the users reminded to specify the meal preferences, etc. I forgot to specify the meal preferences but thankfully the crew had enough of what I wanted. 3. Take a relook at the packaging of the toothpaste tube in the goodie bag. It was sealed in such a way that it was difficult to open it w/o a sharp object. This should have been easier. 4. Seats were the worst part - poor legroom. Worst, the seat cushion is the worst. I think it was just a fabric over a metal seat with minimalist of cushion. ATL to DOH leg was the worst (and the longest leg of the trip). Unless you have open seats next to you it would be a back breaking and painful trip. Seat comfort wise, I would rate Qatar as the worst. Luckily on the return leg (DOH-ATL) next two seats to mine was empty, so was able to stretch and sleep well. DOH-MAA or MAA-DOH seating was little better (think its a older plane; newer planes have worst seats) 5. The website was damn slow while accessing from overseas. Even in the US, at times the website hangs-up, freezes or spins often. 6. Food was ok -dinner and lunch but minimalistic; I didnt see any specific breakfast menu or any coffee served separately (was part of beverage option during lunch or dinner) 7. There was no alert, communication, notification, reminder of upcoming trip via email or text, etc. Many airlines does this very often but Qatar was totally silent on it (they did have my email during checkin). Not sure why."
Pros: "Great crew members. Very friendly and helpful. Qatar Airways is great about providing pillows, blankets, ear plugs and eye masks. Really good food as well."
Cons: "The seats were very close together. With the tray folded out it was right against me without being extended. Leg room was cramped."
Pros: "Comfort of the seat/bed"
Pros: "The airline stewardesses were Fabulous! Especially one from Doha to Cape Town. Food was good and more than enough to eat. I was impressed by the scheduled meals and drink offers , very important for a dietetic"
Cons: "No leg room, can't stretch your legs properly so my bad knee was in pain"
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: "Got upgraded to Business Class :-)"
Cons: "Not much of Movies options to watch"
Pros: "The flight went fairly smooth, the staff were courteous and the food was as good as can be expected of airline food. There were several courses and options, which is always appreciated."
Cons: "Security. They sealed my iPad for special screening but didn't mention they needed kindle as well so I had to repeat security screening in Doha twice."

Cons: "The seats are quite uncomfortable and small. Really struggled to get comfortable."

Cons: "luggage did not make connecting flight from dubai to jfk, inspite of pilot telling us 1 hour or so delay was waiting for luggage. at jfk was told can get same night if want to. this proved futile . spent hours at JFk waiting and talking to Emirates. spoke with multiple agents including Luz, sarah, etc. finally around 12 midnight was told customs would not release till next day. but promised to get it to us by 12noon next day (flying to wyoming next day at 330 pm) . this did not happen. again multiple phone calls and promises , failed. Kiamaria even got text of address in WY where 2 suitcases should have gone. All 4 suitcases were sent to NJ and arrived at 9pm. more phone calls. this time Rachel helped with fedex labels unfortunately more problems as fedex said no barcode and we had to go to fedex office and finally they took care of it so many hours wasted, not to mention the anxiety and frustratioon How are you going to reimburse all this ????"
Pros: "Lovely flight crew and great film selection"
Cons: "Would have liked more healthy food options d"
Pros: "Only thing I liked in this flight was food."
Cons: "Starting from boarding this flight was a problem. we had a infant(18 month old) sleeping in our arms as the flight was at 3:30 Am and was delayed by an hour. There was not priority boarding for elderly and people with kids. We had to wait in queue holding our carry ons as well as the kid. As we were last in boarding it was hard to find a closest spot for our carry on. Crew would not respond for about 10 mins or so( not during take off or landing) this was during mid flight when there was no turbulence(seat belt sign was off). We asked for a veg meal instead of baby food as our kid eats solids and she does not like instant baby food's. We requested this when we booked her ticket , she was not even given food luckily we had some milk powder and water bottle. Really bad experience with Emirates"
Cons: "We were seated towards the back of the economy class and by the time the crew reached us, they ran out of the menu options and we were forced to take left overs"
Pros: "Emirates flight was fine. Problem was booking a South African Airways codebase flight on Kayak. Neither SAA or Emerates were able to look up our booking reference and so we did not get seat assignments until the airport."
Cons: "Codebase flights and no one looking as us as customers."
Pros: "friendly crew"
Cons: "due to 11 kg total weight I had to check in a soft carry on bag resulting in :1/2 hour extra wait time and some crushed items. Vegetarian food was pretty tasteless."

Pros: "The first trip from Chicago to Istanbul they given us the first chair with bed for baby But the next trip they not"
Cons: "Turkish was phenomenal. FareScan could have definitely been better. After booking they called demanding another $145 for my seats.

Will never do business with them again."
Pros: "After we missed our flight, we were provided with terrible customer service."

Then they guy said I could not carry on my bag, I had done so coming to Berlin from SFO, so made no sense to me. So we had to dash to B 25 and then back to A4. The other thing, having an extremely painful back, there was nowhere for me to sit during the time of going through security etc. All caused stress and enormous pain."
Pros: "Very comfortable flight overall and good lie flat seats. All but one flight attendant were nice and helpful."
Cons: "There was one female crew member who was a bit rude and unpleasant. Not once did she even smile when interacting with us. The rest of them were very nice. Would have liked more variety in entertainment and food/drinks."

Cons: "As above"
Pros: "It was so hot. A nightmare ! I Asked again and to turn it on. They did for few minutes at a time. Very upsetting"
Cons: "It was so hot. A nightmare ! I Asked again and to turn it on. They did for few minutes at a time. Very upsetting"
Pros: "I used the prime lounge in Istanbul and when it was time to go, I was able to practically walk on the plane without any wait. The seats were comfy and didn't have a ton of legroom but it wasn't bad. The staff we're friendly and helpful. The in-flight entertainment had a pretty impressive selection and had one of the best-designed interfaces I've seen so far (and I've ridden a variety of airlines). Last and most important, the food was hands down the BEST I've had on a plane. Turkish is killing it, they're my new go-to airline!"
Cons: "I really can't complain about anything, even if I try! Maybe the touch screen sensitivity on the entertainment console seemed a little off, but that's just nitpicking"
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"
Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "Absolute chaotic experience. Seized all electronic equipment which I anticipated ahead of time and left my iPad home - but they took my camera - which is NOT on the list or a digital device. They had ONE person handling what had to be well over a thousand iPads and laptops. Flight left hours late. NO legroom, Food was horrible and inedible. The entertainment system draped out and locked up 4 hours into a ten hour flight. The WORST flight experience I have had in a very long tie and I have flown all over the world. Will NEVER fly Turkish Air again. STAY AWAY from this airline."
Pros: "amazing !!!"
Pros: "Love it"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They lost my baggage. And i have all my medicine in it."
Cons: "This time the food was a disappointment. I had ordered a vegan meal and the hot course was dried up pasta, no protein."
Pros: "Food and service"
Pros: "The crew were very nice al of them."
Cons: "The seats were to close to each other, so when you watch a movie on the screen it was very close that it will hurt your eyes if you keep watching the whole movie."
Pros: "Quick and nice"
Pros: "I like the overall trip!!"
Cons: "Leg space a nighrmare!! Was uncomfortable for all the 13 hrs of the flight. Terrible experience"
Pros: "They treat economy like you're in first class. They literally give you a menu of food. The entertainment is extensive and free. It's also likely your flight will be less than half full. Tons of empty seats to lay down and sleep."
Cons: "Boarding was behind and slow and very crowded in be area."
Pros: "It was a 12 or 13 hour flight and except for sitting too much we were never uncomfortable. The service level made me think we were back in the 80's. Hot towels, attentive service, tons of food and free drinks. There was actually one meal that we would have eaten even if it wasn't on a plane. They gave out full size blankets and pretty fluffy pillows. (I bring our own anymore, because you never know if you will get one on most airlines, and if you do they're usually useless). Their entertainment system was amazing. We caught up on all the recently released movies that we've wanted to see for FREE! If only Netflix had this quality of movie offerings. They had fresh flowers in the huge bathrooms. It's that type of attention to detail you just really don't see anymore."
Cons: "Can't think of a thing that could actually be changed."
Cons: "Transfer to terminal was by bus from out on tarmac."
Pros: "Service when it was done"
Cons: "Infrequent service Crowded Entertainment system bad"
Pros: "Even on short flights they still provided lunch and beverages, which unfortunately you don't get on such short flights (less than 60 min) with most companies. Still they maintain their service impeccable."
Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "15 hour stop over in Istanbul with the rudest, prejudiced airport staff ever!!!"
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Worst airline I have flown, avoid if at all possible. We saved $400 each on a long haul flight from LAX connecting through IST and we should have spent the extra money. Flight attendants are extremely rude, not helpful, the food is terrible, the planes are all old Boeing 777-300 likely purchased second hand and seem to be falling apart on the inside. I saw flight attendants kicking, punching, and body slamming carts and other items to get them to fit in their racks in the kitchen areas, I hate to think what that means for safety of critical items. Just stay away for your safety and sanity"
Pros: "Flight attendants have a great attitude and are very helpful. Clean interiors, nice seats."
Pros: "Good tasting food"
Cons: "Slow crew with no flexibility at all. They did not respond to any "custom" request.(e.g. milch for the kids.)"
Pros: "Is the number six flight with Turkish Airlines and what an amazing company. Great food, great staff, just an overall quality company."

Love the friendly staff who went out of their way to assist.

Crew was awesome 🙏

Cons: "Dinner was only one piece of pizza That’s it"
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Vegetarian Food need to be Improved...."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and attentive."
Cons: "Can’t think of anything"
Pros: "we had extra legroom travelling with an infant"
Cons: "the staff could have been a little considerate when serving food to you while you're holding a sleeping baby"
Pros: "Boarding was easy even though it started late, it was organized. Once I got on the plane I wasn't waiting a long time to get to my seat because they seated the people sitting in the back of the plane first. There is a huge selection of movies, tv shows, and music."
Cons: "They have 2 food options and they're just ok. There wasn't very many drink options either."
Pros: "The MAS stewardess was really nice & helpful"
Cons: "Everything was perfect"
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."
Cons: "It was delayed by 15mins due to heavy rain but it was OK as everything else was on point"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "2 times flight per day"
Pros: "The hospitality of the staff Smooth sailing process"
Cons: "The food and the seats and leg room is too small especially for larger people"
Pros: "Friendly staff, smooth ride, easy boarding"
Cons: "I haven't even made it to my destination yet."
Pros: "Pleasant steward"
Cons: "Delayed and waste time at Jakarta airport"
Cons: "No onboard entertainment"
Pros: "Crew on board did their best."
Cons: "Because of an accident at Manila, all flights were delayed. This can happen, but the information provided by ground staff was far below standard. I assume they have procedures in place to inform passengers, and to make any estimations and guidance on what to do next. Absolutely no courtesy for passengers with connecting flights with different airliners. Usually, MH is a professional organisation, but this was an all time low in their service. Sorry."
Pros: "We paid for extra luggage for check in but we were allowed to carry them on board due to the short stopover duration of the connecting flight. Thanks for the much needed flexibility!"
Cons: "Seat back didn’t stay upright so it was uncomfortable when I wasn’t trying to sleep."
Pros: "Attentive flight attendants ."
Cons: "All acceptable"
Pros: "Food was good and staff was always with a smile in their face"
Cons: "Super crowded and not much room in between rows, I aspected a bit larger and more comfortable plane for an international flight"
Pros: "Retested additional blankets and got them."
Cons: "The crew was in a hurry to provide drinks and remove trays; ttrays were no hot drinks provided; overall, the crew seemed cold and not approachable."
Pros: "comfort and entertainment"
Cons: "Crew"
Pros: "On time takeoff, landed early....everything was smooth"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew"
Cons: "Food. Arrival arrangements (although this may be out of the airlines control - slow immigration, disorganised luggage collection."
Cons: "* Business lounge was pathetic with NO food, only drink and snack. * Boarding was not efficient and took longer that it should have so had a late take off. * Business class.... Ran out of food!?!?! What the heck! only water available for 6 of 16 seats! Pathetic * Terminals not updated so had to take transfer to another terminal to get my arranged ride."
Pros: "The crew were friendly although some of the announcement was not clear."
Cons: "We had bad experience with the airline because our luggage was not to be found at Langkawi airport and we had make a report. Fortunately about 8 hours later our luggage was sent to our resort which we stayed. (we arrived Langkawi airport around 3pm, we were told by the officer that our luggage will be sent to our resort at 7pm but it came at 11pm instead) The snacks could have been better. Besides the salted peanuts, it would be better to add biscuits or a slice of cake. The orange juice is good but maybe if we are given choice of warm drink (tea or coffee) it would be great."
Pros: "The boarding is a bit mess up as it was delayed by Malindo Air which share the same gate, I wonder Malaysia Airport authorities has run out of resources why cramp 2 airlines in same gate departing 30 minutes apart, crew is OK seats is comfortable but landing is quite uncomfortable"
Cons: "Boarding and landing"
Pros: "We arrived at the counter 1:50 before scheduled departure. The queue took 55 minutes for us to reach the counter. We were told then we should have rushed the counter to clear the 1 hour hurdle. There was no approach by staff to warn the waiting queue to do this. We were given boarding passes and told to try our luck taking the luggage through security and try gate baggage check. We made the plane 20 minutes before scheduled departure"
Cons: "Very old plane equipment Short seat pitch limits economy class passenger comfort"
Pros: "Liked the USB port for recharging electronic devices"
Cons: "Seats were too close together. Not very comfortable. We were in row in front of emergency exit. Seats didn't recline. We should be alerted when we select these seats that they are uncomfortable."
Pros: "The early arrival, and the service"
Cons: "Nothing really"
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: "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."
Pros: "Latest informtion about the weither"
Cons: "Flight Costume"
Cons: "Both outbound and inbound flights were delayed for hours. Terrible."
Pros: "Took off on time, landed early, business class cabin was comfortable and food was ok."
Pros: "Boarding was easy with less passengers."
Cons: "The magazine in my seat pocket was dirty. The seat cushion seemed not clean. There was a greasy spot not cleaned."
Pros: "Malaysia airlines has some of the most beautiful women working for them. Most curteous, kind, and very personable. Beautiful. Beautiful. Beautiful"
Cons: "The long layovers with no hotel voucher from Malaysia air. That would be a big help especially for me since I travel alone. And not to familiar with hotel locations, taxis. I am concerned about my safety in another country..."
Pros: "Left and arrived on time. From just the flight point of view, it was correct but traveling now is more than leaving from A in order to arrive to B"
Cons: "I could not select that we wanted a vegetarian menu on the website of this company. The KUL airport is not very big, not many things to do there, very few restaurants. The issue is that if you fly with this company you arrive at KUL. Steward was kind but rough - efficient like a robot... and the headphones are very poor, I could hardly understand what was said when watching the films."
Pros: "On time departure, nice aircraft and entertainment."
Pros: "Service in the plane"
Cons: "Service at the airport."
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: "Fight was delayed half an hour due to waiting for a few connecting flight passengers. This is ridiculous as the airline is making the gain at the expense of other passengers' priceless time."
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."
Cons: "Had a transit flight through KL from Colombo to Bali. The luggage was not with me and my friend along with about 7-10 others post arrival in Bali. We received the luggage after losing almost one day eating into our holiday. Minor compensation was given but the inconvenience was far more! This is not the KL to colombo flight but thought i will write it in here as I got this through Kayak"
Cons: "The first meal that was given was poor. a single roll for the fist of two meals offered on an 8 hour flight, is the poorest meal i have had on a flight of this duration."
Pros: "First experience with Malaysian. Really good. On time both boarding and take off. Food to my liking, perhaps spicy to others. Crew were polite and did their job well. Over all good and service and experience more than expected."
Cons: "Was looking forward to see and experience new KLIA. Had heard about it, perhaps, 10-15 years back. Not that great, bit crampy. Open seating near gates is current style. Toilets are bad, truly Asian!"
Pros: "Although I only gave it 4 for comfort, that is mainly because it wasn't a fully reclinable seat which I don't think it's available on a 737. Otherwise the level of service from the staff was excellent."
Cons: "Relatively little to complain of. As noted above the lack of a fully reclining seat is due to the aircraft type in general. Otherwise no complaints."
Pros: "Direct Flight"
Cons: "Food was absolutely disgusting. The mash potato and chicken was completely melt into liquid. The air con continually leaking throughout the journey."
Pros: "Plane seemed new and the seats were comfortable in Business class. Crew was efficient."
Cons: "Food was stale cellophane wrapped bread and croissant that I did not eat. There is no alcohol served on any Malaysian flight of less than 3 hours. It was a bus boarding that was delayed by weather supposedly but the Tiger Air flight that was due to depart from the same gate area 35 minutes later actually took off on time before our flight. 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."
