One of the stewardesses accidentally poured a drink on my blanket, another said that the tea was so ($40) that he may have to charger for $20 for the 2nd cup I asked for. The food was terrible, I have upset stomach probably food poisoning, a stewardess did ofer ginger tea. Not a very good experiences this time.

We loved everything about this flight and Singapore airlines. We're new fans, we will be flying with Singapore airlines again next year! Highly recommended especially for the long haul flights.

Good service

Departure was on time and arrived early. Second meal in business class could have been later; did not need to be woken up just yet and would have preferred more of a breakfast closer to arrival.

There is not much good to say. Boarding process is time consuming, food should improve a lot and entertainment choices are limited and outdated.

All good other than departing 1 hr late!!

Pros: "Flight time"
Pros: "I reallyiked th service from the crew"
Cons: "I didn’t like the silk air mainly on my itinerary. It was an old flight with cloth on the back of the flights a bit torn. No entertainment in flight for silk air. That was a bad flight."
Cons: "Cabin little bit cold"
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: "Friendly crew I like that a lot. The diabetes food choice ecselent Thank you"
Cons: "The toilets were very dirty"
Pros: "Finally, I could go to my final destination as planned by transmitted to Korean Air flights."
Cons: "My first flight of JetBlue from Olandor to New York was delayed that leading to my connecting flights to my destination were missed. Now, my suitcases have been missed, too."
Pros: "Ease of check in, very quick."
Cons: "Older plane, entertainment system incredibly slow, plane needs tidying up, starting to look its age."
Pros: "The staff were so friendly and helpful."
Pros: "easy check in process and the crew was awesome. friendly and attentive to all passengers. great food as well."
Pros: "Loved the hot towel service"
Cons: "Entertainment could be better, however there were a few new and Oscar nominated movies available. Personal air conditioning would be great, I was too hot the entire flight"
Pros: "United miles."
Cons: "Entertainment very poor, no selection, I took the flt in Jan and the movies and selection was sane in Feb. Bad. Food was so so."
Pros: "The flight was carried out by Lufthansa. The staff was very polite and helpful."
Pros: "All the crews were friendly and helpful!"
Cons: "I wanted to watch Hindi movies with subtitles..."

Pros: "Great they are now flying Canberra to Singapore. Judging by our full flight it is very popular also!"
Pros: "The business class bed was the best I have yet encountered. The food and service were great. And the stews? Gorgeous and so agreeable. One young lady even helped me with my back injury; turns out she was studying physical therapy. You can't find a better ride than that,"
Pros: "friendly staff top Service top Inflight"
Cons: "new aircraft, 2 x usb charging ports, 50+ movies, very quiet aircraft."
Pros: "Foot rest, large movie screen, good food"
Cons: "They ran out of diet drinks."
Pros: "Can't think of. We have been using Singapore Air for years and they were good. However, our recent few flights with them have been disappointing (hence the need for this review) - there's nothing to be happy about."
Cons: "Writing on behalf of my wife. All staff that she met have sour face, perhaps to signal the passengers not to approach them? True enough, the cabin crew did not help her to place her bag in the luggage compartment; the cabin crew did not serve water when requested, and on second attempt, the cabin crew told her to request at the ground. The cabin crews she has encountered clearly expressed their unwillingness to serve with their face and action. Is this the new direction of Singaore Air? The entertainment system requires installation of an app, hence is practically useless since we do not have the app preinstalled in our device."
Pros: "Everything great personnel"
Pros: "ending meal was very late like an hour or less before landing"
Cons: "racial discrimination by the flight attendants thinking that I didn't know Japanese language even though I was white. I could see it happening."
Cons: "I reserved a window seat on this site but was given a middle row instead when I checked in."
Pros: "Delayed flight from Shanghai due to air traffic issues, so I had a 10 minute window to make my connection in Singapore. Ground staff was waiting for me with a small car after I disembarked to drive me to the gate. And I somehow made my connection. Excellent service. Obviously my checked bag didn't make it, but I was told in advance and was kept updated before boarding and immediate after I disembarked at my final destination. When I went to the baggage service counter, they were already ready for me, had filled out my paperwork, and just needed an address to confirm the delivery of my suitcase. I'm super impressed to this attention to detail."
Pros: "Hard to find lounge for bclass users"
Pros: "Excellent service by flight crew. Good selection for entertainment. Flight was enjoyable."
Pros: "Entertainment was great"

Cons: "However I don't eat pork & they ran out on chicken dishes so I missed out on a meal."
Pros: "On time. Attentive crew."
Cons: "Old TV screen that was difficult to see. Looked like it was from 1990. Limited movie selection."
Pros: "We had the BEST FEMALE flight attendants, they were soooo helpful and one of them came and wrote down my kids' names so she can call them by their names, and they got to choose the food and got theirs early so I was able to help them before mine arrived which was super thoughtful! Food option was pretty good and lots of shows and movies to choose from. Getting ice cream was such a treat for my kids!"
Cons: "The male flight attendants were kind of annoying, they were trying to be funny but didn't work so they just came off arrogant and annoying!"
Cons: "Same food options as previous flight Not as many movie options as the longer flight"

Pros: "If youre searching for airlines with best timing no delay and great service, book your flight with singapore airlines without any hesitation"

Over all good experience.

I was so happy and at ease with the crew 100 %the best ever

The best thing was that the flight was only 20 hours from Ahmedabad, India to Philadelphia with just 3 hours of layover in Doha. Food, entertainment, staff- everything was good.

It was QR707 , sold as AA8119 - I was not able to select seat online and not able to select food option online too!

This flight was cancelled

Pros: "Great crew! Excellent business class suite"
Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Perfect"
Cons: "They do not understand the word priority at Doha airport. Business class passengers boarded last."
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "We were told to board, but then kept in another area close on 1 hour before we could get on the plane and this area had no bathroom facilities. The spread of seating on the plane made no sense with many open seats but also many squashed rows of people. The crew was visibly tired and irritated, they also ran out of a few catering items. It seemed as if last minute, a few different flights were combined into this one which lowered the quality."
Cons: "Food would have been better."
Pros: "Food and leg room"
Cons: "All was fine"
Pros: "Very friendly crew, good space in my seat, kept the plane dark and quiet for the overnight flight"
Pros: "Staff are very polite and helpful (ground staff and in the air)."
Cons: "The food was hit and miss. Some of it was good and some of it used ketchup as a sauce. The economy seats have been stripped down to budget airline level padding and the rows seem have been been jammed in a little closer."
Cons: "The vegetarian option for breakfast was a stale waffle with apple compote. Inedible."
Pros: "Food selection. However, the snacks need to be readily available on long flights."
Cons: "Entertainment is lacking behind other international carriers"
Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Food could be better and frequent"
Cons: "Bad service for wheel chair. No wheel chair at Doha Airport! Need to walk."
Pros: "courteous service and a clean modern airplane"
Cons: "The sound system was inadequate on the TV and the headsets were uncomfortable. The queue at the check-in needs to be better controlled, it was a bit chaotic."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "It seems the major airlines use older aircraft when the destination of the flight is a third world country(or Africa). The seats aren't as comfortable and the entertainment system (screens) are not as good as a Qatar and Europe bound flights."
Pros: "The flights attendants were very helpful and polite. What I enjoyed the most was the level of comfort I had. I was able to sleep for almost the entire flight. That's why it felt like it wasn't even a long flight."
Cons: "We did leave a little late but it was out of the control of the pilots and flights attendants."
Pros: "There was adequate seat room. The device was good."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."
Pros: "Staff was great"
Pros: "Thank you for a very good flight experience both from Philadelphia to Doha and Doha to Johannesburg."
Cons: "The breakfast options could have been better, but I was fed and happy, and the flight attendant was kind enough to bring me green tea when it wasn’t readily available on the cart."
Pros: "Food was very good and plentiful"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Small single aisle plane No wifi, no power ports, no individual screens Qatar is great about serving water but not other drinks -- I bought drinks inside security but there was another round of security at the gate -- they confiscated all of the drinks I bought"
Pros: "Food excellent. Great movie selection. Very nice dreamliner. No complaints"
Cons: "Seat to LA was broken"
Pros: "The flight went well, from boarding to landing."
Cons: "We were informed at origination that we would be put up in a hotel in Doha. Online and also at check in desk. When we arrived in Doha we were directed to a desk for hotel booking. After waiting inline 45 minutes we were told we don't get a hotel with reduced economy fare."
Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "When the flight is changed by airline for their convenience, they would have given preferential treatment to the passengers involved. We had to bare the cost of food and make us comfortable on our own due to the delay in transit."
Pros: "Very nice. Everything was great."
Pros: "The crew aboard the flight were kind and thoughtful and definitely oriented toward service."
Cons: "The security process at the gate was really disorderly. Perhaps it is because it is a new and extra step required by the US but it was definitely not efficiently handled."
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "The friendliness of the staff from check in to arrival!"
Pros: "I freceuntly fly between the US and South Africa and only fly via Qatar Airways, and every experience thus far has been great. The food is good quality, friendly crew and I would recommend it to anyone."
Cons: "The sandwiches are a little dry and movie selection a little limited."
Pros: "Upgrade to business class was a nice gesture and the service was impeccable.."
Cons: "Just a tad delayed in getting off the plane...not sure what took unexpectedly long"
Pros: "Unfortunately..."
Cons: "...as mentioned, I don't have the pleasure of rating this flight because of the boarding delays and missing the flight. Very disappointing."
Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"
Pros: "Service of air stewards very friendly and polite"
Cons: "This goes for Qatarfigjta from harare to Doha and Doha to Washington DC and back. I am not going to give individual report on each one. Food - my daughter could barely eat anything and the vegetarian meals were stone cold most of time. It was hard to eat at Qatar airport because not only is the food terrible (Burger King and bad Asian food) but outrageously expensive. Our media system did not work for one leg. ** way to many ads on your media system. Every time you watch a new TV episode, you have to sit through 5-6 ads for stuff that is not interesting and the same each time. ** plane info on media system keeps reverting to Arabic even when English is indicated as preferred la gauge. We had to place our iPads in checked luggage for flights from harare to USA as we went through Qatar. *** I asked for quiet seats and was given seats near kitchen and toilet even though I booked in hours in advance. One leg had my ten year old daughter and I in different rows even though I checked in 4-5 hours in advance Of flight . ** staff moved my hand luggage without my permission and without informing me - it was stressful trying to find it."
Pros: "Excellent experience overall, the food was decent, the seats were comfortable and had enough space for me at 6ft tall, the staff were very friendly and helpful, entertainment selection was good with plenty of new movies out. I had no problems with my layover. The baggage allowance was great as I had extra luggage from my trip. I'm very happy with their customer service, the day before my first flight I received a phone call from Qatar's customer service saying that due to delays I wouldn't be able to make my connecting flight to Edinburgh so they would like to book me on another flight instead of me having to wait 24 hours in Doha. I was thoroughly impressed with this service."
Cons: "I did not have wifi available from Doha-Johannesburg"
Pros: "Friendly crew, good entertainment options"
Cons: "Nearly empty flight and twice got assigned seat in very front with screaming child. Going had to move to nonreclining seat after 1st 12 hour flight. Assigned last seat in plane going even though short layover - had to run after 12 hours on plane since got last bus to terminal and waited, waited, waited for final passengers, not fun. Way back flight changed and no accomodation made (a lounge, room, anything) for 7.5 hour layover "you'll just have to hang in there" in middle of night even though others on my tour with same issue in dubai got a room included. With added stress of going through qatar which i booked because of longer layover so wouldnt miss connection just before political decree announced, i will do anything to avoid qatar again despite the very friendly crew. And having to wrap my camera equipment to check it, get extra insurance, such a pain."
Pros: "Stuardess verry nice, exceptional"
Pros: "Great crews, excellent airplanes, wonderful in transit experince."
Cons: "In flight coach meals were average."
Pros: "On time departure, friendly crew. Comfortable seats for economy class, plenty of entertainment options. A pleasant experience"
Cons: "The food was okay. The hot wrap/calzone served first was not very tasteful. The breakfast/brunch was better. Not much to dislike overall."
Pros: "Nice people"
Cons: "6-hour delays coming and going. Sounds like a an issue."
Pros: "Again on time and effortless boarding made the overall experience a good one."
Cons: "Our suitcase was damaged...still in the process of trying to get it fixed. Hopefully it will be done soon. I will then update this report. Could maybe clean the toilets as it did become a bit messy."
Pros: "ALMOST EVERTHING"
Pros: "Considering how long it was, not much could have been better. It wasn't too crowded, so the seat next to me was free, which made getting some sleep easier."
Pros: "food"
Cons: "Worst customer service ever seen in my 15years of flying experience. Initially charged $1000 for 3 tickets for modification of return trip - confirmed the same and tickets issued (i'm fine with this). But, after i made arrangements for new date, I got a call saying calculation error and asked to pay another $500 leaving me no choices. How can such a reputed airline have no tools to calculate the pay? Other airlines offered one-way for half of the price i paid. On top of it, online helpdek promised front line seat to satisfy me but nothing was offered even if i ask explicitly. Simply declined saying i am not in priority list. Why do they make false promises? Friends, Just don't fly in Qatar for food....."
Pros: "Flight was good. Cabin crew very good. Food good."
Cons: "Qatar Airways check in at Heathrow was a dis-organised shambles. Arrival at Qatar Airport passport control was even worse at 12.45 am. Long queues,very slow to move, police checking passports unbelievably slowly. Retina scanners should speed up the process. Why then take 5 minutes to check each passport? Poor advert for Qatar, after nearly an hour of queuing I would think most passengers wished they had gone somewhere else."
Pros: "The service from the crew was amazing"
Cons: "The food was not bad compared to some air lines"

Worst experience ever, never ever flying with etihad again.

The tickets from the airline were very restricted. I neither could change my departure nor destination. I was given the only option of open ticket and that too is valid only for 1 year.

Cons: "1- To present more than 2 choices of meals, either the main meals or snacks, like Kuwait"
Pros: "Great flight....enjoyed it thoroughly....."
Cons: "The Seats were really old and no new movies"
Pros: "Business Class Seats were comfortable"
Pros: "Good crew Seats good"
Cons: "Earphones plug difficult to fit Toilet cleanliness not adequate on occasion"
Pros: "Seats near me were empty"
Cons: "There was no vegetarian food. This is a big thing. The stewardess walked past me although I was waiting to buy from duty-free."
Pros: "Good price. Long flights were not at all crowded. US preclearance in Abu Dhabi."
Cons: "Entertainment. Food was so-so."
Pros: "No hassle at airport check in. All good"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "787 comfort /"
Cons: "Limited movie selection/ outdated newspapers/ food quality"
Cons: "Flight was hot ac not working enough food was horrible."
Pros: "Nothing about this airline"
Cons: "I requested for a aisle seat as I was travelling with 2 yrs old but they put me in the middle with other two people on th side . Very horrible ."
Pros: "More legroom Crew was couteous"
Cons: "Poor quality food Old planes"
Cons: "The seats in row 43 should only have 3 in the middle as I kept getting bumped by the trolley as the aisle narrows considerably at that point in the plane."
Pros: "Timings r good"
Cons: "Service bad no comfort In the flight means congestion in seats"
Pros: "The crew were really accommodating."
Cons: "I had chosen an aisle seat and vegetarian food online. Neither were given. The food choices were meager."
Cons: "Bad service"
Pros: "NOTHING!"
Cons: "Abysmal experience on our return flight! # Abu Dhabi Airport is so outdated and an embarassment compared to the other Regional Airports # Boarding procedure still shambolic # A330 seems old and uncomfortable - even though it is a new plane # Cabin Crew so unfriendly and sour # Toilets again disgusting within 30 minutes after taking off # Food still shockingly disgusting # Onboard entertainment still inferior to Emirates/Qatar/etc."
Pros: "Got an exit seat, so really enjoyed the leg room and overall flight experience."
Cons: "The flight did not take off on time, either from NYC to Abu Dhabi or Abu Dhabi to Islamabad. From Abu Dhabi to Islamabad, it was almost an hour late."
Pros: "Again, excellent flight crew."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike."
Cons: "It's a connecting flight for me and there is a long wait. so, my opinion is better to serve some snacks or food in the flight."
Pros: "Crew serve with passion"
Cons: "Long queue for check-in"
Cons: "Some times we did not take food from crew, I and my kids are slept. When we woke up kids feeling hungry, they are not provided food"
Pros: "The entertainment options are much appreciated. The crew was cheery and helpful. The meals were tasty."
Cons: "It's a really, really tight fit in Economy. Super hard on the knees and I'm a short person. It was even hard for my 7 year old to get into semi comfortable position to sleep. On the way over from Chicago to Abu Dhabi, the crew walked by with offers of water regularly and even snacks...we really missed this courtesy on the way back from Abu Dhabi to Chicago. Water was only offered during meals and it was hard to flag down an attendant for water."
Pros: "Good"
Pros: "Comfort on such a long flight was much better than other airlines. Food was great"
Pros: "The crew was very nice."
Cons: "THere was no air conditioning! Seemed like the pilot tirned on heat. And the whole plane smelled."
Cons: "Veg meals ran out very fast, not enough options for all the passengers."
Pros: "Qatar always help their passengers secure a transit visa for Doha why cant Etihad do the same?"
Cons: "Qatar always help their passengers secure a transit visa for Doha why cant Etihad do the same?"
Cons: "Few food and drinks options Bathrooms not so clean"
Pros: "Bad services over all"
Cons: "Lemo services"
Cons: "Bad service. Crew not friendly. Frustrated at check-in counters - longest time ever, stupid check for cabin bag. I chose etihad for first time, I came with the same bag with different airlines never got a problem. Everyone was angry as only half inch their bags were buffered than the frame. Worst experience"
Cons: "This airline has gone downhill in customer service and food over the last three years. We will not travel with them again."
Pros: "Great flight - Was very Comfortable in economy class considering it was a 141/2 hour flight . On time. Great Crew. US airline crew can definitely take lessons from the international airline crew on customer service."
Pros: "Punctuality, space, tv monitors in each seat and nice service"
Pros: "The seats reclined in a better way giving more room. Crew were very happy, engaging and helpful to the Extra Mile when it came to kids and the older passengers. Always polite too."
Pros: "Quality Airline Excellent service Food was also great"
Cons: "Etihad doesn't have a consistent baggage policy. The line manager at the checkin did not stand by the company. Not ready to give a written statement of what they told me at the check-in counter. Customers are held hostage with the inconsistent policies and what ever they relay to you, you do not have any option but abide by that or cancel the trip."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "They need better food"
Pros: "Excellent."
Pros: "All ok."
Cons: "Seats seem pretty short. Only half my leg fits on them and I am not a tall person."
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Seats are very narrow and uncomfortable. The seat cushion doesn't provide much 'cushion'. Some other competitor airlines have much better seats."
Pros: "Boarding elayed by almost an hour. Not a nice experience for anyone"
Cons: "overall flight experience was good"
Pros: "It was a good experience with Etihad airlines, comfortable and ambience."
Cons: "Food provided is not at all good. Very very poor."
Pros: "Punctual"
Cons: "Nothing not to like."
Pros: "Na"
Cons: "Na"
Pros: "Loved the cabin crew, they were friendly, helpful and attentive despite a very long journey from Chicago to Islamabad."
Cons: "One piece of luggage was is banged up that there is a large dent and the handle no longer closes...unfortunately one of the best peices of luggage. Limited staff for such a filled flight, despite their best efforts service suffered. Need a seperate section for families with children. Face mask might be offered to passangers who coughed much of the journey causing concern about sharing germs in air that is already still. Food and toilet areas were smelly towards end of flight."
Pros: "The fact that the flights left on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "The seats were too uncomfortable, very hard and too small. The flight attendants were not very attentive. They did not make eye contact but when they did they were very nice, but with no eye contact it was not easy to get their attention."
Cons: "Cabin luggage with sensitive/delicate items were forced to be checked in for 2nd leg of the journey. Cabin luggage upon retrieval at destination was scratched/dirty and one glass item inside was broken. Recommend Etihad provides complimentary luggage wrapping to prevent such issues. Additionally, crew was unable to manage noisy kids, and a request for ear plugs was ignored. Recommend Etihad provide affected travelers with ear plugs to manage the noise, and that the crew undergo training to better manage problematic parents w/kids."
