Airline reviews

Pros: "The crew were excellent"
Cons: "Seats and leg room not as comfortable as older plane. The entertainment system was confusing to use ( again older model) hence not as user friendly."

Pros: "I like all"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Service was excellent!"

Cons: "Flight was canceled. They moved passengers to the Lufthansa but didn’t tell us even though we checked with the counter every 20 min. Apparently a text went out that we didn’t get"

Pros: "The crew, their professionalism and wide variety of entertainment."
Cons: "Air-conditioning was not working properly in the cabin and it felt warm. Seats are a tad uncomfortable and not wide enough on the 777."

Pros: "Generally good Flight was operated by Silk Air"
Cons: "Entertainment score is not meaningful because of the short flight time."

Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the staff was very attendant!"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Everything on time and smooth. Great service. Great pillows and. Plenti snacks anytime I want it. Very comfortable seats. Entertainment System fabulous."
Cons: "All good"

Pros: "Prompt boarding, friendly service, decent food, plentiful entertainment. Singapore Airlines was a great choice for my flight from Texas to England."

Pros: "The service was excellent start to finish. I found the movie selection to be excellent on the plane and the food was tasty and above average for airline food, and the seats were comfortable."

Pros: "check in went smoothly. helper was friendly and helpful."

Pros: "SIA service and food is always good. The flight went by quickly which is good."
Cons: "The entertainment system for the 777 did not have a touchscreen which I have been accustomed to on other SIA flights, but the main issue was the brightest setting for the screen was very dim. I think the screen is just old and not as bright as before."

Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew. Efficient service and good boarding. Seemingly wider seats than the newer A350s."
Cons: "Positively ancient entertainment system with poor selection and bad visual quality. Ads pop up every time you go into another menu. If you're flying SIN->BNE I'd avoid the 7.20am departure, you'll get the old 777-200s rather than the A350s they run on other departures."

Pros: "I will only use Singapore Air for anywhere they fly. They really care about their passangers, 2 checked bags 1 carryon no charge, no airline does that. They constantly feed u & alcoholic beverages all at no extra charge. Flight attendants always have a smile on their flight. In flight entertainment was great, touch screen and remote controller. They supply earbuds, socks, toothbrush and paste."
Cons: "Absolutely no complaints"

Pros: "Ok"
Cons: "Delayed"

Pros: "Very organized"
Cons: "Seats could be a bit more comfortable in premium economy"

Pros: "Great amount of legroom in the seats we were lucky enough to be granted. Entertainment was good!"
Cons: "Frantic service from crew. They seemed anxious and rushed at all times. Food was also very average."

Pros: "Ease of check in, very quick."
Cons: "Older plane, entertainment system incredibly slow, plane needs tidying up, starting to look its age."

Pros: "Easy online me check-in with proper notification & reminder. Attentive crews and good on board entertainmrnt. However, food wise just a good thumb up and not excellent coz we looking forward to see more variety of foods available on board"

Pros: "great crew service. my first time flying with singapore airlines. they delivered!"

Pros: "That the A380 was only 70%full, resulting in me getting three seats to myself. I was able to stretch out and sleep for most of the flight. Food and service were top notch. Better value than Lufthansa or American, for the overall flight experience. You could fly cheaper, but not better, in economy."
Cons: "Though we landed early at JFK, we had a one hour wait on the tarmac until one of the only two gates capable of receiving an A380 opened up."

Pros: "The seats are very comfortable. There was ample entertainment."
Cons: "No complaints at all. They are very professional and I would chose them again."

Pros: "Fantastic flight attendants never needed anything just a 1st class job definitely a 5 star airline thanks for everything"
Cons: "All good"

Pros: "Even though the flight was just 45 mins, the crew were able to pop out a beverages round"
Cons: "Nothing to mention, all was good"

Pros: "To be honest I had a pretty bad flight because my allergies exploded during the entire flight - constant sneezing, runny nose, you name it. However, the attentiveness of the crew really made up for it. The cabin was decorated with tiny wreathes (so cute!), and the pillow/blanket was very comfortable/warm for an Economy seat. Although I did not use it as much, the entertainment seemed top-notch. And the crew-- they noticed that I was not feeling well, and offered me peppermint tea and snacks that did sooth things a bit (you can request for snack/beverage refills anytime!). I loved that they gave out black socks to the passengers too (I prefer taking my shoes off during the flight, so the socks added warmth & prevented my own socks from getting dirty). All in all, it was one of the best-serviced long flights I had, not to mention probably the most affordable price I paid for my annual trip to Korea (from LA)."

Pros: "friendly staff top Service top Inflight"
Cons: "new aircraft, 2 x usb charging ports, 50+ movies, very quiet aircraft."

Cons: "I purchased this ticket without realizing that the law stipulated 6-month validity remaining on one's US passport to enter singapore. The Singapore Airways website does not state this anywhere, and it was not until I arrived at the airport that I was informed that I wouldn't be able to check in, but nor could I refund or transfer the ticket. The booker should be obliged, when one enters the passport information upon purchasing the ticket, to make note if the passport expiration time is not valid for the flight. Spent $600+ on the flight, and the customer service person I spoke to from the airport was very abrasive and not interested in helping me figure out an alternative."

Pros: "smooth service with refreshments"
Cons: "No working seat audio"

Pros: "I paid for an economy class ticket but got first class service."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The trend to offer more comfort in Economy Plus and similar leads, of course to less comfort in normal Economy class. The ticket price was certainly attractive but it is doubtful that it was good value. Economy Plus might not be good value either."
Cons: "Barely enough legspace. Some seats recline more than others, if you're sitting behind one of those you're out of luck."

Cons: "I reserved a window seat on this site but was given a middle row instead when I checked in."

Pros: "The staff are so friendly and helpful. Highly recommend travelling with the airline. The A380 is a great way to travel with more space in economy. I booked seats on the upper deck where there is a smaller economy cabin. Makes you feel a bit more civilised up the top!"
Cons: "Economy class isn't great for a long haul flight but the staff make it much more bearable."

Pros: "Food, movies, support, were all wonderful."

Pros: "the flight time was quick , by the time you took off you practically were preparing for landing"
Cons: "nothing disappointing"

Pros: "Crew is big on service and being true professionals. Always smiling and being attentive"
Cons: "AC works when wheels are up and engines kick in. So its stuffy whilst on the ground"

Pros: "Main Entree hot"
Cons: "Cold bread; dessert similar sweetened gak"

Pros: "Personal TV"

Pros: "Huge selection of movies Towel service, socks, and toothbrush for economy class Snacks included entire chocolate bars! Friendly staff"

Pros: "Attention to detail, good leg room, entertainment options and a brand new plane"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Amazing plane and crew!"
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Flew business class to SE Asia and experienced great service, fast check-in & boarding, terrific seating and amenities, and outstanding meals. Came home well rested."

Pros: "It was safe, great staff and service! Entertainment was great and lots of options in food and beverage!"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Excellent crew service and entertainment."

Pros: "Consistently good food."
Cons: "Entertainment system sometimes froze, didn't remember where I was in the movie."

Pros: "Service is amazing! I loved that airplane had Christmas decorations on the walls and great choices of food and beverages."

Pros: "Before booking my flight on Singapore airlines, I took the time to read through some reviews and to be honest, the reviews left by previous passengers did not do the airlines any justice. 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: "Great food and plenty of movies. Friendly crew"

Cons: "Food not so good"

Pros: "Singapore Air is keeping up their standard which is a tough job. I give credit to them while doing so. They do have a high bar to keep. Singapore Air still pampers its travellers by providing hot towels for refreshment. Something that I don't enjoy while flying on other airlines. Keep up the good job."
Cons: "I saw a scotch tape taping over the arm of the seat! This is rather amusing and seems unacceptable. This is Singapore Air that we are talking about. Are we saying that Singapore Air do not have any proper repair kit to fix it without using scotch tape?? Being one of the world's 5-star airline, I think Singapore Airline can do better than that. :)"

"The airport staff of Qatar airlines was UNFRIENDLY and UNHELPFUL. They all acted like we were bothering them. They gave no help in moving from one station to another. In general they gave an extremely bad first impression of Qatar airlines!!"

Pros: "I would have appreciated that with ALL required paperwork, my stay at check in point would have lasted a little less than two hours I spent standing and waiting for a feedback."
Cons: "Updating clients and offering a seat if it’s a long wait could have improved the situation. It is on reception that the business gets its impression. Thanks."

Pros: "Everything great!"
Cons: "~"

Pros: "Crew was great. They made up for mistakes in a positive and amenable way."
Cons: "Flight was late. There was no communication about it. The flight from Joburg to Doha was late, therefore I missed my connection. The delay was not officially communicated to any of the passengers — no announcements made, no representatives to talk to at the gate — until well past the time that we should have been in the air. It was distressing."

Pros: "Yes. the crew was amazing, respectful and seats had adequate leg room. Entertain equipment was working."
Cons: "Same advertisements before each movie could play were annoying to me."

Pros: "The crew was very attentive and professional"
Cons: "Food wasn't great"

Pros: "Crew is amazing"
Cons: "The Entertainment screen wasn’t working"

Pros: "Great crew and food. Nice economy class."

Pros: "Nice crew, 1 hr free WiFi"
Cons: "Significant delay on jetway, temps uncomfortable,"

Pros: "The staff at Qatar Airways did everything they could to make this flight one of the most enjoyable of my entire life. The food was well prepared and exceeded my expectations. I also enjoyed that the food was served at times that minimized the impact of the time change."
Cons: "The movie and TV options were impressive; however, in-flight WiFi and power would have been convenient and improved the entertainment on board the flight."

Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "I found my seat a bit uncomfortable for this leg of the jurney"

Pros: "The service of the cabin was great!"
Cons: "The food was not of the quality I would have expected from the expectation created by the airlines marketing. We boarded close to a full hour later than scheduled and the boarding process was very slow."

Pros: "Nothing was spectacular."
Cons: "No lounge in Philadelphia took my Priority Pass. On the flight, the woman in front of me threw her chair back without asking and almost had hot coffee all over me. When I asked her to put her chair up, she got mad. She went to staff to insist she could put her chair back. I showed them that I was indeed in a back brace for a health condition and that I needed opportunities to move and shift, cross legs to release tension, etc. Staff sided with the rude woman, who, given the chance to move to an equal seat on the opposite aisle where she could recline, refused to move. I was very frustrated and have never been treated with such discrimination regarding my health concerns."

Cons: "Did not make this flight."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Excellent"

Pros: "decent leg room. the staff was accommodating"
Cons: "the brea was har. some of the food was overheated thus making it hard to eat"

Pros: "Friendly crew and good food/drink service. Timely departure. Comfortable and spacious seating at the departure gate."

Pros: "Fantastic service, very friendly staff who are always happy to help"
Cons: "Should have internet free of charge in flight"

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: "The change of my flight schedule for the entire journey was done without giving me any options (departure flights from origin and return). It would have caused me inconvenience if the change of time does not allow me to adjust my plans."

Pros: "Great flight. Everything was good. The only very small issue is hey offer WiFi but even if you pay the allocation of data make you feel like you living in the 1990. 10 meg free and 300 meg for a whole flight is a complete joke, especially for USD 30. They could manage protocols but give a reasonable service."
Cons: "WiFi"

Pros: "Qatar is a reliable airline."
Cons: "No matter how many times I have traveled with Qatar (5 international flights in the last year); I still do not receive any benefits such a priority boarding or upgrades."

Pros: "The service from check-in till landing was on the ball and superb. They were friendly and eager to assist with everything. They have the latest movies and shows to watch on their in-flight entertainment."

Pros: "great crew and food."
Cons: "being charged excess baggage when one suitcase weigh under weight. Having to wait at the terminal for a hour and a half because of bad weather -- not the pilot's fault"

Pros: "great staff"
Cons: "Some of the head phone are not working at all...."

Pros: "Stewards were great"
Cons: "No complaints for this leg of the journey. Entertainment options were mediocre as all legs of my journey had the identical offerings and i pretty much watched all of it in my round trip almost 48 hours of total on plane time."

Pros: "The plane from Johannesburg to Doha was Fine but not as wonderful and comfortable As flight from Doha to Chicago"

Cons: "They lost my bag and that’s disappointing considering I have my bank account details in that bag. Very disappointed by this"

Cons: "Few selection of food."

Pros: "I was actually impressed with the entertainment selection :)"
Cons: "The economy seats are just unfortunately not a place you can get comfortable enough to sleep. On 14 hour flights one hopes to sleep."

Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Hard cushioning and narrow seats on the 787"

Pros: "Helpful staffs and great stewardess!"
Cons: "Too many babies this time! Scary bathroom 2 hours before landing. Food portion can be improved. Entertainment screen and choices can be more considerate!"

Pros: "Good in-flight service"
Cons: "Cramped seats"

Pros: "In general the crew was very nice."
Cons: "The dreamliner is a little tight in relation to the B777. The Kosher meals very all the same for breakfast lunch and snack"

Cons: "1. rude staff - i stood in Jburg at the counter for 13 minutes (i checked my clock) while 8 staff ladies spoke among themselves in a myriad of languages. FINALLY one lady asked if i had been helped! I said no and she was clearly less than thrilled to be the one to help with my question. i literally just wanted to ask if my seat assignment was a window, middle or aisle, but it was like i was the bane of her existence and i interrupted their social hour. On my outbound flight (ORD to DOH) I also watched three staff members be beyond rude to guest after guest at the check in counter regarding baggage when they came forward to "re check-in" which was a new requirement for most people. There was a lot of general confusion on behalf of the consumers and the staff was NOT the least bit patient or helpful in explaining what they needed from us or why this flight had different procedures than normal. I still don't know why they were so fussy about baggage and made everyone re check in at the gate in fact. And they didnt do it to my baggage so i have no idea why they were so rude to some and completely left others alone. (didn't seem to have to do with size, carrying of electronics, i don't know?) 2. the physical flight - you changed my original flight time to something that was REALLY close for my connection from DOH to CDG, so you instead bumped me to a later flight without consulting me. it would have caused me to miss a connection flight I booked separately through EasyJet from Pairs to my home airport BIQ. I had to figure that out on my own. RUSH through Doha to make my 35 min connection and barely was allowed to board my onward Paris flight by the Qatar gate staff which was only cutting it close as a result of YOUR changes! Yet i was treated like i was somehow "late" and wouldn't be able to board ??? Again incredibly rude staff. Subsequently you lost my luggage because the connection was too tight. i landed on Friday and it didn't catch up to me until Tuesday. Not one person has said sorry or offered any restitution. And this is honestly what upsets me the most. I doubt anyone even reads this. pathetic. I work for a travel club and since Monday (so in 4 days) I have actively reached out to 4 clients to cancel and re-booked their Qatar airways flight to another carrier to get them to Johannesburg. They will be doing the same safari experience I did, but I will NOT recommend and book my clients on Qatar after my experience."

Cons: "You canceled our flight in the last minute. we were starting our holidays and missed one day included the booking reservation. We didn't get any refund regarding this issue. On the other hand, i booked my special meal and never received it."

Pros: "The flight was on time, not full and the crew and the entertainment was excellent. Very happy with the experience of flying on Qatar Airways from Johannesburg to Miami."
Cons: "Everything was well, the food was good not great (even for airplane food) and the only other issue is it seemed like trash from our drinks and food services was picked up for quite a while or until we brought it to the flight attendants ourselves."

Pros: "landed safely"
Cons: "Had to claim bags at Doha and go through multiple security screenings to board connecting flight. At one point all the security was not functioning and we were packed up in lines. Barely had time to stop at the restroom before final security check where it was all so disorganized. After that check we were told that if we left we had to go through security again. Would have been nice to know that upfront. It was a madhouse going through that final security check and my husband's wallet was lost for a bit. No one really tried to help and we were told to move aside. Finally someone saw that it had fallen beside one of the counters. It was all horrible. Because of all this our 5 hour layover was a hassle with no time for food, etc. The whole airport experience was confusing and badly handled."

Pros: "Excellent in every way. Clearly a top tier airlines. I will choose Qatar Airlines at every opportunity."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Kayak/priceline re-booked my flight for my sister and I from SAA to BA, but failed to completely reissue us tickets. When we checked in for the flight, we had no ticket for the first leg of the flight, but we had tickets for the remaining flights. We immediately called to fix this problem, but due to slow customer service, we weren't issued tickets in time and the flight left without us. We missed all remaining connecting flights and were forced to buy New tickets. Now we have to work with kayak/priceline to get all my money back due to their error. We came back a day later than expected and missed going back to work."

Pros: "I enjoyed the staff"
Cons: "The screens were old school and I HS a hard time getting it to work Also the sleep mask I received had sticky stuff all over it when I opened the package."

Pros: "Excellent Cabin Crews, Flights on time"
Cons: "Food is mediocre at best, comfort on 787 is terrible."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Because of poor connection, arrived for flight 15 min. before departure. Gate agent wouldn't allow us to board and wouldn't help us rebook. Offered no help."

Pros: "Seat space. Stevice. Terminal."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Attendant was rude and never really finished service, never remembered any requests and consistently skipped guests when providing food or drink service, cabin kept oscillating between either too hot or too cold."

Cons: "We took off in a terrible storm with lightning striking all around the plane. Very rough, lightning which scared the hell out of both me and my wife."

Cons: "Cabin temperature in my section was slight hot and was uncomfortable until we complained to the supervisor. Steward spilt food on the floor next to our seat"

Pros: "Amazing and efficient when we had to be rerouted due to the hurricane we had excellent service and care at the hotel which made my stay for a short while a memorable"
Cons: "The plane was quite congested as the seats were very narrow coming back to Miami"

Pros: "Real silverware."

Cons: "7 hours on the phone all over the world so far and absolutely nobody willing to take ownership of this problem. What terrible service"

Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "Dont have special food for little ones."

Pros: "Absolutely friendly Professional"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The food was very nice. The IFE was very nice as well. The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The was a lot of profanity used by the attendants that was not necessary. Secondly I reserved a front row seat in online check in, but it did not allow put mean in that seat. Which if they were full would be understandable, but every single one was empty."

Cons: "Food on the menu was not available. Some of us did not get lunch and were being offered bread. Some flight attendants were impatient with pax and unwilling to help especially with regards to Wifi on board , others were impolite"

Pros: "generally good overall for a 14 hour long flight"
Cons: "legroom could always be better for me......but this was similar to most other airlines"

Pros: "Crew, interior, seats"
Cons: "Food was average. Service could be better. For example, my wife and I never got our food at the same time or close enough. We had to ask for food or drinks. They should regularly ask if we need something. Empty water bottles (up to 3) were sitting on my table for hours till we landed."

Pros: "The seat was not up to the usual Emirates business class standard. The lights were never completely dimmed."

Pros: "crew was good but seat was too narrow, and there are too many little kids near us."
Cons: "do limit the number of passengers with little children and don't put senior citizens near them."

Pros: "The food was nice."
Cons: "Emirates should consider stop selling the seat that is just located next to the laboratory. It’s simoly too close to the facility and I could not get good rest at all not to mention about the strange smell."

Pros: "Upgraded to first class!"

Pros: "General flight was good. Loved the food."
Cons: "Beeing more than an hour delayed"

Pros: "comfortable seats and entertainment system"
Cons: "the food wasn't so good and I expected more from an Emirates flight"

Pros: "The food and service was great."
Cons: "Boarding for priority was a bit slow."

Pros: "Crew and entertainment"
Cons: "Food and legroom"

Pros: "Emirates really knows how to treat customers"
Cons: "Flight was long"

Pros: "Good flight and on time."

Pros: "Good service by Emirates"

Pros: "Boarding was good"
Cons: "Peanuts !! Ban them please"

Pros: "The travel kits are much nicer now, appreciated the mattress"
Cons: "The boarding process in ORT was a horrible fail. they didn't announce the boarding of first/business and by the time I arrived at my seat there was almost no overhead room left because people from economy put there bags in the business area. The bathroom was definitely not cleaned enough, I went twice where the floor was soaked, the seat was wet and the sink full of toothpaste. I understand that every passenger should be responsible enough to clean up after themselves, but it was not an enjoyable experience. The crew was friendly enough, but it didnt feel like the personalized service experience that is usually the case (where they introduce themselves, explain the do not disturb sticker etc). Also I think there was something wrong with my seat because it didnt "lay flat" all the way."

Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "The food"

Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "The food"

Pros: "Upgrade to Business class"

Cons: "Peanuts should be replaced with snack crackers as so many people can not eat or come in to contact with peanuts, it’s a health hazard and not healthy. Entertainment on board should have background music"

Pros: "I love the positive and can-do attitude of your crew"
Cons: "A 4 year old banging on the back of my seat"

Pros: "A380 flight was very comfortable, with adequate leg room. A great feature for long haul flights. Good food and a very good entertainment system"
Cons: "Good was served late, in both legs. Flight departs at 7 pm but diiner was served after 10 (midnight Dubai time) Which meant our sleep was disturbed and when breakfast was served we had a full stomach."

Pros: "Wi-Fi"

Pros: "Staff were friendly and helpful. ICE entertainment onboard offered a wide veriety to choose from"
Cons: "The food was average"

Pros: "www.Web.HR"

Pros: "Good service"

Pros: "The food, drinks and entertainment we’re excellent. I also watched the staff caring for another passenger who was frequently summoning them for small requests but the staff was always patient and cheerful with him."

Pros: "We will highly recommend to use this airline. We will try again to flight to any city that we know they will have connections . Is worth it to plan to stay a few days in Dubai. Is a great city , unique, different."

Pros: "Flight was quiet and very well organized"
Cons: "I normally choose vegetarian on all my flights, but emirates only has a strictly vegetarian option. Which means vegan - food was not good at all. Sometimes too spicy to even try to eat. I asked to replace my meal on occasion and took the continental breakfast which was great."

Pros: "the food was wonderful, the economy seats were comfy, and the service was superb. I really liked being able to watch movies and listen to music w/o a charge."

Pros: "The great content in the entertainment system and the wifi. Bed was comfortable and the service was fantastic. I also really enjoyed the bar in the upper deck. The A380 is a wonderful machine!"

Pros: "I say that everything was good but overall "excellent" because it is hard to fly for hours upon hours and say that it was excellent. All considered, it was good while Emirates (compared to other carriers) is excellent. These huge airplanes are amazing!"
Cons: "Flying for hours upon hours but nobody can do anything about that. Africa has a routine, including this flight, of filling the cabin full of chemicals - for insects? Prepare to cover your head and face!"

Pros: "The comfortable seats, the entertainment system, the food, the attention given by the flight attendants. A great airline!"
Cons: "The length of the flight, but that's unavoidable."

Pros: "Space and the fact that everything worked. Food was excellant."
Cons: "I always like Emirates."

Pros: "leg room"
Cons: "the touch screen system was poor, limited movie choices, food taste, poor crew members etc"

Pros: "OK flight"

Pros: "Efficient, clean, friendly"
Cons: "None comes to mind"

Pros: "The crew were excellent. Very helpful and professional."
Cons: "All good!"

Pros: "Food and Entertainment beat Delta hands down."
Cons: "Unfortunately packed into a row with a lot of big guys"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "It was just ok overall."
Cons: "The first flight was late by over an hour and nobody could tell us why. They also serve food once and you don't get a snack or anything--you don't even see the attendants--for another 10 hours. Then they serve breakfast close to an hour before landing. The crew is constantly telling you to sit as if you weren't allowed to use the toilet at all when the seatbelt sign is on--and it's on the whole time. So you have to be asking permission to use the toilet when you are right next to the toilet door and about to go in because they don't allow you to use it. That's not healthy for someone to hold it."

Pros: "I will only fly Emirates when available to my destination from now on."

Pros: "I liked the boarding and most the crew was excellent"
Cons: "I specified ovo Lacto vegetarian because I eat cheese and diary. I got a stale and very small bread role with strawberry jam, wilted fruit and margarine for the breakfast meal. The non vegetarians got a full plate of croissant, cheese, fruit and jams. When I asked for butter I got no response. I asked three times before I could get some butter as I do not eat margarine. Lunch was wilted and slimy lettuce and tired fruit for dessert. The main meal itself was delicious but I was hungry the whole flight due to the small helping.. Another small but slightly fresher role and margarine again. Next to the non vegetarian meal there was less than half the food. It was very disappointing."

Pros: "Movies and internet"
Cons: "Took too long for food service. We were in middle two seats and my partner was feed and finished before I even got my food. They should go down each side at same time."

Pros: "Crew attitude and helpfulness. Food and beverage."
Cons: "Boarding procedures. Inadequate bathrooms for passenger numbers. Seat width. No economy plus seating."

Pros: "The wrap-around head rests help with sleeping. The good size blanket was comfortable and kept me warm. I really liked the bigger entertainment screen and excellent choice of movies and TV programs. I've never had 'Homes International' and 'Don't tell the Bride' on any flights, which are favorites of mine and are very popular.. I fly on 16 flights/year domestic and international.

I sat in the middle seat between two hours other men. It was a constant struggle arm space. After 7hours in the air I could not wait to get off the plane.
