Airline reviews

Cons: "The aircraft was very cold and chilly."

Pros: "the crew is fine. The seat was OK standard."
Cons: "Food was not good on my way back to L.A. Food was no flavor, pork cut up way too big, prefer having small piece of meat soaked up flavor sauce."

Pros: "I loved that the airline offered several meals, snack options and drinks. The attendants were amazing and would highly recommend Singapore airlines to anyone flying internationally"
Cons: "The limited arm room/personal space. Not much leg room in economy for a 10 hour flight. Would be nice if airlines would decrease the number of seats and give a little more room so people aren’t hitting each other in the head with their arms"

Pros: "They passed by me when they served the meals because they thought I had it already which it was someone behind me who got his meal since he had a special meal request. So I ended up to talk to them that I haven’t had my meal yet. It was embarrassing moment for me. They seemed thinking that I lied to them."
Cons: "They are well trained crews so I have no better ideas about improvements"

Pros: "Crew were helpful and attended to any needs that we requested. As I am a big person the seat is never that comfortable but Singapore Airlines seating is more spacious than other companies I have flown with."

Pros: "The plane was new. The in flight entertainment system was good, although I never got to experience it fully because the Flight attendant kept switching it off, as I had paid extra (an arm and a leg) for a “bulkhead seat”"
Cons: "The service was beyond awful! The Flight Attendants had a “could care less” attitude. I had special ordered a meal, and they gave me the wrong one. I did not want to make a big deal, so I just ate it. Then they did not offer any beverages when the meal came! I literally had to beg them to make me their famous “Singapore sling”. Shocking really!!. When I had my coffee, my request for cream and sugar went ignored THREE times. Finally they grudgingly gave me only cream, rendering my coffee undrinkable. .....And the list goes on. Never ever will I travel on this horrid airline again!"

Unfortunately it was a short flight so I didn't et a chance to experience the whole service properly as I needed. I felt like royalty with the service offered by your staff who consistantly came to check if everything was in order without making a nuisance. Fantastic food and beverage options too. Overall a great experience, but would have liked it to be a 12hr experience instead of 5."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The staff were great, very efficient."
Cons: "I asked to be placed in a seat as close to the front as possible as I suffer from motion sickness in the back of the plane. I was placed in the back row all the way to my destination and all the way home. I vomited 8 times and felt very sick. I did notice that there were many seats available in the front of the plane but they are never given out as women with babies and children always get them and then single travellers like myself are made sit in the back. I travel a lot, I usually fly Qantas and they are very good at providing seats closer to the front. I will be reluctant to fly Singapore Airlines again due to the fact that they were not accommodating at all."

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!"

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."

Your so called Muslim meals are not suitable for kids!! There is no such thing as a Muslim meal either. It’s simply called Halal otherwise then everyone else’s meals should be called Christian or Jewish meals etc. Also I requested help with transfer to my last flight which was horrendous because I’m one adult with 4 kids ages 1 to 11 and my eldest has sever learning disability. I nearly missed my flight because our flight landed late and I was struggling to keep my kids safe and together while running for the next flight. Somone should have been there to help with transfer."

Pros: "Crew members were friendly."
Cons: "Bathrooms need freshners, many passenger, infants , kids use it. It smell not unclean ."

Pros: "Treated with kindness and courtesy by ground and cabin staff."

Pros: "Window seats on the upper deck have additional luggage storage bins and seem to have more leg room than seats on the main deck."
Cons: "Keep all babies in one section of the aircraft"

Pros: "Staff were efficient and friendly, constantly offering juice and water."
Cons: "Boarding could have been a lot better organized they need to do it the same way Lufthansa does in Los Angeles"

Pros: "Clean aircraft, very friendly crew, good food, overall great trip."

Pros: "Generally like Lufthansa service - have been flying the airline for 15 years+ Pilots are always excellent"
Cons: "Every flight (to and from India) seems to have the chicken option run out. Why not order accordingly? Had a bad seating experience. LH.com showed that I had completed the boarding process. But when I went to the counter, my seat was changed without my consent (to a worse seat), and I was told that the online process wasn't complete!! Then the website should say accordingly. It's really annoying when this happens. I think the ground crew in New Delhi duped me. At one point, my call button for my meal was ignored for ~30 minutes on the plane. And then I was told there was no more chicken, and handed a veggie wrap. One wonders whether I could have gotten chicken 30 minutes ago!"

Cons: "They made me sit next to a special needs person and did not warn me. I didn’t signup to keep helping the elderly."

Cons: "Two flights delayed then no bags when we got to Chicago- disappointing and annoying. Great to arrive with no coats in winter!"

Pros: "Firstly, the food was great!"

Pros: "Great service, on time departures and arrivals, lie flat seats in business class. The planes were relatively new. Waiting lounges at Delhi and Frankfurt are well stocked with food."
Cons: "Almost nothing"

Pros: "I like the lufthansa Flight. The Crew was Amazing."
Cons: "I didn't like there UNITED Flight merger/connecting flight. United flights are not comfortable at all especially seat's cushion. There in-flight Touch Screens are pathetic. Either United Airlines need to upgrade there planes or Lufthansa should think of avoiding them"

Pros: "Aircraft"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "I was upgraded after all the pressure from thehurrricane this was the icing on the cake"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Entertainment system wasn't working. 11 hour flight. Boring. No seat change available. No reading light, as light controlled by entertainment system. Seats in front of toilet cluster lit up every time door was opened. Crew were slow to react. Wasn't a priority. Ruined the excellent first leg of had from Philadelphia to Frankfurt. Do they run inferior planes to South Africa compared to USA?"

Cons: "My wife has an I797 document. Lufthansa didn't recognize it and I had to book her a business class flight on Qatar airways."

Pros: "Movie choices"
Cons: "Crew was very very rude , special meals were not provided in spite of being confirmed many weeks before"

Cons: "bad business class experience, requested assistance 2 but only one came that alsoafter so much hassel will never travel or recommend"

Pros: "Courteous service."
Cons: "Food is bland, unimaginative and below par. No english news papers."

Pros: "All the staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Terrible leg room."

Cons: "Flight was an hour and a half late!"

Pros: "The airlines gives the best flights possible."

Pros: "Ground Staff helpful. Cockpit pilots communicated effectively. Cabin staff was courteous."
Cons: "The wait prior to takeoff. Flight departed late. The gate counters at IGIA, New Delhi were allowing some passengers to pre-board early even though the passenger was not senior citizen or handicapped, or family with children. Food from New Delhi to Frankfurt was less than optimal in taste."

Pros: "Great services and very good food."

Pros: "Food snacks were awful."

Pros: "Very polite and helpful staff"
Cons: "Food could be better"

Pros: "I appreciated the advance boarding for families traveling with younger children. Plenty of time to settle in with the kiddos."

Cons: "This airline has little respect for its customers. In the economy/coach cabin, they squeeze the seat distances to such an extent that, when the person in front of you leans their chair back, you cannot get out of your seat at an upright angle. You have to significantly bend your body. To not loose your balance, you have to grab on to the seat in front of you and that disturbs the other passenger. If they're sleeping, they can be woken up by that. Lufthansa does not care much for its passengers. Nor do many other companies, for that matter, but I think Lufthansa is taking things further than most airlines. It is a disgrace. Their brand is not what it once was."

Cons: "Everything was good"

Cons: "wheel chair crew ignored us during boarding. my mother had to walk to the gate which was very difficult"

Pros: "On time."
Cons: "changing seat assignment"

Cons: "Leg space is tight"

Pros: "Checkin was timely and the agent helpful!"
Cons: "The immigration line was way too long in New Delhi."

Pros: "The airbus seating was comfortable. It was my first time in this type of plane, and it was a great experience, even in coach class. The crew was great. I gave respects and received 10X more. Thank you Lufthansa!"
Cons: "I don't eat much on long flights so I don't have much to share, though I did feel that food quality can be better. To be fair, the same comments apply to all other airlines that I have flown, with Emirates being the exception. No big issues for me personally, though."
