Cons: "Less fog in SFO"

Cons: "Very small in the plane"

Cons: "Docking at an air bridge rather than taking a bus"

Pros: "Everything was excellent, crew, seat, food"
Cons: "The person on duty at the desk of the lounge in Johannesburg was very unfriendly and even rude."

Cons: "Seats were too close in economy as in most airplanes."

Cons: "The flight was three hours late."

Pros: "Friendly, cheerful crew. Clean plane & good entertainment. Food was hot & decent."
Cons: "More food, drinks & snacks. Especially on such long flights."

Pros: "One lady from the crew was amazing and very helpful"
Cons: "They destroyed our suitcase. At the beginning of our vacation it's very unpleasant and uncomfortable situation."

Pros: "the flight was on time"
Cons: "the sound system on my seat was broken so I couldn't watch movies except"

Pros: "Delayed. Late notification of delay. No text notification of delay."

Pros: "Reasonable leg room in the economy"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 2 hours I could not take on board by carry on luggage because it weighted 10kg. Food service was poor and not well organized"

Pros: "Service was very good. Food was decent. Surprised CX served dinner early in the morning Pacific time right before arrival at SFO instead to breakfast."
Cons: "There was an extra layer of normal security check at the HKG gate 15. The male team leader, probably in '50's, with two bars on his shoulder was extremely rude to the passengers. I was at the front of Economy class when a female Asian passenger walked up in the Business class ilne. He naturally tendered to her first and let her and directing her to a lower security ranking staff t the other side of area. All fine and dandy. But seconds later, a Caucasian male walked u,p indicating that he was with that female Asian, the security guard got real mad, shouted at the Asian woman who by then was some 20 feet away that next time she needed to tell him he was with someone. When it was my turn to go into the secured area, there were to guards available standing side by side, a male and a female. He let me and pointed toward the two guards. I asked him which one, he didn't answer. I asked a second time, "Male or female", he still didn't answer, just pointed his finger toward the two guards. His attitude was totally unacceptable."

Pros: "It’s tough to make a 15 hour flight in coach very pleasant, but with the seats and entertainment system in the 777, it was really fine. I recently took a 6 hour flight on Wow airlines in a A320 and the seats were terrible and no entertainment. The Cathay flight, though it was more than twice as long on the air, was much more pleasant."
Cons: "I wasn’t crazy about the meals on the flight. A choice of chicken or pork was pretty limiting, at least for me. The plane did have a snack area which was open throughout the flight, which was good."

Pros: "the airline provided good communication to customers regarding potential flight re-scheduling and check-in information. the service was good, with a selection of meals. the onboard flight entertainment was very easy to use and had a large range of contents to view. overall I will fly with Cathay again."

Pros: "Good customer service."
Cons: "Could have used one more snack and more water although should have maybe asked. Dinner was good though."

Pros: "Everything but the seat"
Cons: "Seat configuration is not worthy of CP business class. It’s the old 777-200, either retire the plane - that would be a shame, or upgrade the seats"

Pros: "The crew is so nice!"
Cons: "Same seat selection issue."

Pros: "Crew was nice food was great"
Cons: "All good"

Pros: "Adequate leg room, which is very important in a long haul flight. Punctual."
Cons: "We had lunch and then breakfast, skipping dinner. Considering we were in the place for 14+ hours, dinner instead of either breakfast or lunch would have been good."

Cons: "There was a long delay when boarding the connecting flight to SGN and there weren't any clear updates on the flight status. I didn't mind the wait so much but I wish they had announced the current status more clearly."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I’m still not there. They had me go to the airport 5 hours early to get a different flight cuz theirs was delayed then after not being able to make those flights carrying my 5 bags to 3 different terminals they said just go on their delayed flight and cuz they had over 80 people going on to Manila that they would hold the last flight there but when we landed we were informed going to a hotel and no compensation for it. I am extremely pissed off"

Pros: "FLIGHT WAS CANCELLED"
Cons: "Airline could have have notified us the flight was cancelled via email before we got to the airport. THEY DID NOT. We had to wait in general airport area for SIX HOURS, before we could check in to new flight. We planned trip to arrive to unfamiliar destination during day time. We arrived at MIDNIGHT! AWFUL!!!!"

Pros: "Food was great, and the business class 777 seats are a delight. And the captain shuts up through the entire flight --- no interrupting your sleep or movie with stupid observations that no-one wants to hear."
Cons: "The quality of the screens (crappy slow resistive touchscreens) is completely unacceptable for business class in 2018. China Airlines screens are VASTLY superior in their hardware, their speed, and the quality of their UI. And running an ad before EVERY movie --- in business?! Talk about an airline having no sense of class. That's a cheap, stupid move."

Pros: "Food is good"

Pros: "Great service from flight attendants."

Pros: "Great customer service. Very attentive"

Cons: "Broke my luggage"

Pros: "Food was better than other airlines for economy price. Movie selection quite good as well as other options. Liked the maps."
Cons: "My seat would not move back. The audio on the movies was very difficult to hear with background engine noise. Poor clarity, and the selection of movies was excellent, so I chose not to watch. Solitaire game was complicated to understand."

Cons: "My booking did not allow me to do seat selection. Me and my wife sat separately. No resolution from the crew to resolve this. Seats are not comfortable."

Pros: "Very enjoyable flight. Plenty of legroom in the bulk seating. Service was very good and food was OK."
Cons: "Seats in economy are not that thick therefore not comfortable to sit for a long time."

Pros: "Entertainment okay. Screen small"

Cons: "Cabin a bit "dull""

Pros: "Love the plane, seats"
Cons: "Food has gone down"

Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "During boarding please setup separate lines for end and front cabin seats. Since everyone where mingled during boarding the flight the aisle was blocked by front cabin passengers loading their cabin languages.. Try boardning end of the cabin passengers first like from seats 60-75 and then front cabin seats."

Pros: "The business class seating is all lay flat and all seats are isle seats."
Cons: "A medical emergency required us to land in Vancouver delaying our flight into Lax by 1-1/2 hours. I missed my next flight and lost my 1st class seat. No help was offered."

Pros: "Plane landed early"

Pros: "Shorter flight airplane much nicer"

Pros: "Fast boarding, sufficient space for cabin bagguage, food was ok"
Cons: "It was too cold during the flight, less drinks"

Pros: "Entertainment was great!"
Cons: "The check-in was stressful and congested."

Pros: "Customer service"

Cons: "The flight from Cairo to Istanbul was delayed one hour and I missed my flight from Istanbul to Houston and i had to get a visa for $30 in cash and spend the night in Istanbul thus I will be arriving a day late in Houston. I was offered no assistance to avoid missing my flight. I had to run only to find my other plane left without me..."

Pros: "flights on time. special meals I ordered were provided."
Cons: "very long check-in line. took over 1hr to check in. tried to check-in online in advance, but system did not allow me to do this."

Pros: "Overall flight was good. The flight was on time, the boarding was smooth, the entertainment was excellent. I would like to thank crew for their work"
Cons: "As a family it was a big disappointment that we got seated in a different row. The check in person didn’t even made an effort to put us together just suggested that we can ask to switch on a plane. Another big disappointment was food Please bring the food quality back"

Pros: "Care from the crew and consideration"

Pros: "flight departed Jhb on time and arrived in Istanbul a few mins earlier than scheduled"
Cons: "1.cabin temperature varied from cold to very warm 2.I asked the cabin crew for a blanket but they forgot about it 3.I ordered a whisky with ice - was given half a tot with 2 small blocks of ice 4.only one person was serving drinks and food on my aisle so it was very slow service (other aisle had 2 crew serving)"

Pros: "Service was excellent"

Pros: "Easy communication and promptness"

Cons: "The flight was delayed from Athens by 1.5 hours. Crew assured us we would make our connections. When we landed no info was given. No announcements made. We were forced to clear security again, even though just transferring and, after running to our gate, found the connection had left and the gate was abandoned with no one to tell us where to go or what to do. The lack of communication and information was appalling. Most people eventually found their way through the airport to a desk that booked them on a flight the next day. It was exhausting and the Turkish staff were unsympathetic."

Pros: "Service and bag policy"
Cons: "The house food"

Pros: "No complaints about the plane, staff etc and its probably no worse than any other airline"
Cons: "Long overnight flight in Economy Class, little legroom. As I am larger than average and find it hard to sleep on flights, the cramped conditions were extremely uncomfortable"

Pros: "This was my first time flying Turkish Airlines and they are exceptional! The crew was very friendly and helpful and their food! It was delicious! They also have a way of making you feel like a first class passenger in economy! Will definitely fly with them again!"
Cons: "For a long international travel, there is nothing bad to say. They are superb!"

Cons: "Worse customer service"

Pros: "The captain was a woman!!!! So good to see that! And the whole crew was female, they all did a fantastic job."
Cons: "One of the most uncomfortable plane rides I've been in... seats were so tight, my neighbor was basically on the armrest and over it all the time, it was hot in the plane, I couldn't wait to get out of there."

Pros: "I'm 6 ft 2. Legspace was adequate, and no silly boxes under the seats like other airlines that obstruct your feet. Great entertainment systems - modern, good selection. Food and staff excellent."
Cons: "Their online checkin systems could operate a bit more smoothly. At one point, I had to go in in person, because the online checkin site had an already past flight from their codeshare partner SAS showing up as the next flight, and I couldn't perform online checkin as a result."

Pros: "Walking past the Turkish Airlines desk in Dulles and knowing I would NEVER have to interact with these monsters again."
Cons: "I am an experienced traveler. I've been to 17 countries and have flown over a million miles in both business and coach. My wife encountered a problem in Istanbul that involved an airport transit visa through Canada. I am certain that any other airline we’ve ever flown would’ve assisted us, since it was easily resolved. To Turkish Airlines, this is simply a part of their business model and a chance to make more money. It took about 8 hours of our time at 5 different airport locations to eventually buy new tickets to get back the next day. Our original tickets say: “REISSUE With 200.00 USD penalty. What I didn’t see was the fine print at the bottom: “Turkish Airlines reserves the right to change rules regarding ticket changes and refunds.”. They mean it. As bad as our personal experience was, the real reason we are so appalled is that we were there long enough to see this is the norm for them. In our single day there, we saw at least 100 other travelers going through similar things. The ONLY solution ever offered is to purchase another ticket. We witnessed several people weeping. Many losing control and shouting. Their own personnel were screaming at customers (in a separate office area though, it was all yucks and laughing). These were people of all nationalities. Africans, Asians, Europeans. We were lucky because we had the means to purchase new tickets. Others clearly didn’t. I really don’t know what happened to some of them. One moment was very symbolic of the entire experience. Another vanquished traveler was paying $843 for a new ticket with cash. He handed her $845 but she, of course, had no change. Instead of the $5, he gave her two $1 bills. I had one in my pocket so gave it to her as well. She held my $1 bill up and pointed to the corner which had a very small piece torn off…no ink was missing…and sneered “I can’t accept this. She did this simply because she could. We were powerless. She knew it and reveled in it."

Pros: "Almost nothing specially the flight from Dhaka, If I known that the level of business class is like that, I would have bought economy"

Pros: "The landing."
Cons: "My special meal had been canceled."

Pros: "The staff, the comfort, the food, the green tea aroma scents in the restrooms. <3"
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "My only complaint would have to be that their bathrooms on the plane were a dirty. Other then that the airlines was excellent!!!! I would definitely recommend Turkish Airlines to family and friends."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "The issue of excess baggage. Would appreciate to buy on line before my flight so that I know how much to carry and also that I am covered before leaving home. Payment at the airport may be too costly as well as unreasonable. It's like a penalty for having excess luggage. This is the reason I prefer flying with EMIRATES because they afford me to but pay fir excess luggage before my departure. Planning ahead is key"

Pros: "I like the food in the air craft it was good, but the crew seemed not wanting to speak inglish The are more willing to serve turkish speakers, They were not even able to solve seat problem. that I and my next seat guy decided to solve the issue by offering our seats to them so that they can sit together, the crew spoke poor english and we were held up by that seat problem, ask that crew member they will tell you what happend, After we gave up our saets to random girls who were also angry about turkish airline, we were able to take off for nairobi And yes the coffee store by the cafe nero and nearly all business refused to give us a wifi And turkish airport offers wifi to only those who have a turkish phone number that is so very low Shame on turkish airline for treating us the give us a free rides we are their bussiness and we will make sure that we stop giving our bussness It looks like they took their customers for granted and we will just tollered it but I will not and many people whom I know will not It is simply desaster... 0% service from the time you come to the airport untill boading time I had to ask about 5 deffrent men to tell me if where I was terminal. One but none of them know what i was saying And at the time my flight was sopposed leave 7:50 so I was freaking out And no one helping at that crtical moment I finaly got the delay flight info after running somany times up and down the road"

Pros: "Vegetarian options available"
Cons: "Long delay"

Pros: "I love everything at Turkish airlines. Good food, entertainment, very professional staff. My flight was perfect! Thank you, guys!"

Pros: "The flight was quite comfortable. We lucked out with only a partially filled flight leaving extra space to sleep. Service was friendly and the food was excellent! I was fed twice on my 9hour flight and once on my 4hour flight. Great in flight entertainment."
Cons: "No complaints."

Cons: "This 13 hours and 5 minutes flight was extremely hot. Regardless of how many times we've asked the flight attendants to make it cooler for us, nothing changed. By the time, we get off my shirt was soaking wet. Imagine flying for so long under these conditions. What an horrible customer service!"

Pros: "I really enjoyed having all of my concerns over delayed flights and possible missed connections rudely dismissed or outright ignored."
Cons: "Flight was over an hour late boarding and spent nearly 45 aboard the plane waiting to depart. No updates from the staff about our departure status or boarding status throughout the almost 2 hour delay. Got an email from Turkish airlines about this issue and they claim the flight was only 25 minutes late departing. Exaggerations occur sometimes when people are inconvenienced so I checked my call logs and social media accounts and found I completed multiple phone calls and status updates from New York over and hour after Turkish airlines tells me I left. One of us is lying and at this point I'm inclined to agree with facebook that I was still in JFK airport an hour after my flight was scheduled to leave when I updated my status to gripe about the delays."

Cons: "The tv sett wasn't working ."

Pros: "Exceptionally nice crew, outstanding amenities, best food I've ever had on an airplane. I especially liked having the option of traditional Turkish fare."
Cons: "The boarding process could have been more organized. I had a business class ticket and could not find the priority boarding line. The first ground crew member I asked was abrupt and sent me to the back of the long line. I caught the attention of a different crew member and he motioned me to the front of the line--it was a little awkward saying "excuse me" to each person that I passed. (I am not used to being a priority passenger!) Once my documents were cleared and my carry-on was inspected at the gate, it was not clear whether to take a seat or to go somewhere else."

Pros: "I love everything about this airline. I'm a fanboy of Turkish airlines every time. Great in cabin entertainment, great service, always awesome aircrafts."
Cons: "i had asked for an aisle seat and ended up on seat 7C which is the one that is next to the seat where the stewardess sits down. I wouldn't have minded at all but my seat and the one next to it didnt recline anywhere near as much as every other seat in the whole airplane. It was really uncomfortable for me and the person who was seating next to me. Hopefully this will be the last time i get stuck in that kind of seat."

Pros: "Food and Crew"
Cons: "The fact that the boarding was by bus and not through a sleeve detracts from the process."

Pros: "After checking in in Manila, they told us there is no more seats for us and we're not able to board the plane that we booked few months in advance! Wtf! We had to board next plane the next day, 24hours latet! One day of our vacation lost. Going back was no better since the plane from Manila had slight delay and we missed our connecting flight to Ljubljana for just few minutes. Disappointment again! We got home 15 hours later than we should have. Don't think we will fly with Turkish airlines ever again.After checking in in Manila, they told us there is no more seats for us and we're not able to board the plane that we booked few months in advance!

Cons: "Nothing...great flight and great crew."

Cons: "the fact that in my flight from turkey back to isreal the boarding guy added in hand written something that look like curse i got pic.... and was not nice ... dont know if it was because of the late time or hes mind was disturbed ... you dont act like this ... i do not know what he add but i dont think its a bless"

Pros: "Food is excellent, staff great."
Cons: "Not nearly enough leg room for an international flight!!"

Pros: "On-line check, including seat selection, was easy. Requested vegetarian meals and got them! Food was quite good."

Pros: "Great customer service and food!"
Cons: "Nothing. They were great!!"

Pros: "Great service. On time. Friendly personnel."

Pros: "Entertainment system is excellent, food is solid and plentiful."
Cons: "I've flown Turkish a few times before, and they're generally pretty good for the price. This trip was different. Despite Turkish Airlines policies outlined in their "Customer Rights," I received no notification that the flight was delayed 3 hours, and there was no notification at the JoBurg airport until you go to the counter to check in. JoBurg staff - which are Menzies third-party contractors, not Turkish staff - were disorganized, uncommunicative, and unhelpful. Only one person at the check in desk seemed to have authorization to make any changes, so all other agents were running back and forth to speak with him, and not communicating with passengers. It took over an hour to get clarity on the situation and rebook my connecting flight to Washington for a different flight 8 hours later. The only compensation offered was one meal voucher worth R100 (roughly $7). They would not even look at other Star Alliance flights for early arrival in Washington, and said they were not authorized to consider upgrading my ticket. When I called the Turkish customer service, they essentially said "What do you want us to do about it? You have to submit a formal complaint." Boarding was totally disorganized. In theory there are boarding groups, but after business class and all the high-ranking loyalty members, it's pretty much a mad rush. This seems to be the common practice for Turkish now. In general, Turkish has a great entertainment system on all their long-haul flights, with tons of movies - including very new releases - music, games, etc. They also provide complimentary kits with socks, slippers, eye mask, earplugs and dental kit, even for economy passengers. The meals are fairly good for airlines. However, legroom in economy isn't great. I'm 6'1", and had difficulty getting comfortable with my knees jammed into the back of the seat in front of me. On this particular flight, I was in row 18. The cabin crew were frantic, disorganized, and shouting to each other across passengers. One half of our row was served the meal, and the other half had to wait over 30 minutes to be served for some reason. By that time the vegetarian option was no longer available. Crew also had to run back and forth between service carts because they were frequently out of very common beverages (like sparkling water. And ice.), and on two occasions crew left a drawer from a cart full of trash sitting in the aisle. There were several times that crew ran carts into passengers - including once into my knee that was not in the aisle - and didn't even acknowledge doing so. They also stopped the carts in front of occupied lavatories, temporarily trapping passengers. So not terribly professional. While not specifically on this flight, the experience in Istanbul airport with Turkish Airlines' staff was awful. Zero interest in helping, rude and dismissive, and overall terrible."

Pros: "I left my iPad in the seat back of my previous flight to Istanbul and by the next morning they had my iPad to me and Hungary! Very professional!"

Pros: "x"
Cons: "x"

Pros: "Transit was okay."

Cons: "No entertainment facilities available even in business class"

Pros: "ok"

Cons: "Felt more like a domestic flight than an international"

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"

Cons: "I have never had to stay at a hotel overnight because of a missed connection but when I made the reservation I wondered how you would honor the 1 hour layover and not miss. I wondered this before any of your delays. I was assured the connection would wait but not correct and you did miss. If you would have told me at the airport this would happen I would have made other arrangements. Instructions on what to do was quite poor too. As a foreigner to be handed a stack of vouchers without direction on where to go for transportation wasn’t satisfactory."

Pros: "Ok"
Cons: "No"

Pros: "Comfortable seating map"
Cons: "Food could be improved especially for vegetarians"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "The crew was not friendly, and the food selection is limited"

Pros: "Boarding was organized"
Cons: "Vegetarian food wasn’t great"

Cons: "Feel airline maintenance is slipping second flight in a week where they have tv trouble"

Cons: "Crew service"

Pros: "Amazing plane, latest technology, great customer service, clean bathrooms at all time. It was a 5 star experience, friendly hostess’s and friendly & helpful staff"

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: "Smooth flight, great entertainment"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Changed gates 3 times . No one knew what was going on. Late flight. Request for wheel chair not fulfilled. Very tight transfer. Very far to another gate when transiting from kL to Yangon. Ridiculously far. My first n last time with Malaysia airlines."

Pros: "Lovely people an caring all the way through."

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: "Similarly delayed departure and arrived at HongKong over 11/2 hour later- poor service!"

Cons: "Malaysia airlines lost my luggage. Delayed for over 24 hours and had to send to another airport. Cost me hundreds of dollars and no compensation provided"

Cons: "This is the second time - once on the way to Kuala Lumpur and on the way back that we boarded late and thus missed my connecting flight. Sadly Cathay and Malaysia air (which was the airline Cathay used for the return leg of this trip refused to help and put me on an earlier flight forcing me to stay an extra 6 hrs at the airport while being sick."

Pros: "Air conditioning"
Cons: "Not much of a meal and serviced quick then picking up paper before finished eating"

Cons: "Quick transfer"

Pros: "There were choices of foods. I really liked the fact that they considered Korean natives as they gave kimchi together with their dishes. Attendants were polite and kind. 30kg allowance is a great merit too."
Cons: "Frequent delays in flights and changes in timings. There were many passengers and it's quite hard to carry my carrier through the alley. The foods may be in variety but did not taste very nice."

Pros: "Can’t find anything good."
Cons: "The airline is protected by the government. Hence there is no motivation for them to improve. This airline is my last choice. My biggest dissatisfaction is the hospitality shown by the crew.. not sincere and in some cases rude... is this the MH - MALAYSIAN Hospitality that they keep advertising? Very disappointing.."

Cons: "Prebooking a seat with Malaysian Airlines requires calling KL office which is always busy. It costs a lot if calling from the US, in addition to paying for the seats. It really turned me off."

Pros: "Easy and efficient boarding"
Cons: "Too hot onboard"

Cons: "Economy class seats are getting tighter and smaller. When person in front reclines the seat you do not have much moving space left"

Pros: "The food and check in is better flying from HK to KL.."
Cons: "It seems the crew, in most flights, is always grumpy.. rarely I get service with a smile.."

Pros: "Efficient"
Cons: "Food was lousy"

Pros: "Friendly & attentive crew"
Cons: "Departure delay (10 minutes)"

Pros: "Attendants were very good"
Cons: "12 hrs in the air!!!"

Pros: "Most of it, especially having a meal on such a short flight."
Cons: "Could do with more legroom, tall people exist"

Pros: "They provided us with a hotel to stay in until everything was arranged."
Cons: "No communications with KL that our flight was cancelled and marked me as a no show on my next flight. Which cancelled my next flights. I'm not too impressed."

Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew"
Cons: "food was horrible"

Pros: "Better overall service - boarding, no delays, comfortable cabins, pleasant crew."
Cons: "the windows were a bit smudged from previous passengers"

Pros: "Not enough elbow space between fat passengers"

Pros: "Avoiding the huge queues (lines) in Asian airports is worth gold. Bz class travel on the KUL-BKK sector on Malaysian isn’t great but avoiding the queues at both ends makes it all worth it"

Pros: "Peanuts"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "All aspects were fine. Weather caused a delay for landing of ore than 45 minutes, but not airline's fault."

Cons: "2h+ delay"

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."

Cons: "No beer or wine in business class! Did not want a meal, so I got water and a tiny pack of peanuts."

Pros: "Good service and timely operation"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Food is not good"

Pros: "Flight was on time - to the detriment of my late connecting MAS flight from DAR"
Cons: "Food was okay but entertainment was non existent"

Pros: "Newer B737-800 aircraft Improved entertainment system Drinks"
Cons: "Seat pitch is a measly 30 inches Entertainment system USB has very low current - very slow to charge phones Food taste is very poor"

Pros: "Cabin crew are attentive and helpful."
Cons: "The luggage was found opened, a belonging was tied outside of the luggage. When I tidy up the luggage, I found that my toiletry pouch went missing. MH609 was delayed from 2305 till 0030, all passengers board the flight and we were told to alight again due to technical faulty. Switch to another flight and delayed till 0230. By the time we arrived in Singapore, it is almost 0340. Collected the luggages, clear custom and arrived home is almost 0500. There was absolutely no refreshment provided in between, and have to switch between gates which are far apart."

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."
