Read more about Singapore Airlines

It was a very comfortable journey. Everything was good and should be maintained

Delays were given at intervals. So we were informed

There was difficulty with my connecting flight due to inconsistent COVID regulations. I was almost not allowed on, despite fulfilling all my requirements for my destination country. I was over-billed by Alaska Airlines for my luggage as well.

Pros: "Crew was friendly. Seafood pasta was good."
Cons: "I wish all airlines have a foot rest."
Pros: "The cabin crew and the pilots. The flight went smoothly."
Cons: "Singapore Airlines should inform clearly of the mileage policy and the lounge access while using a code-share flight. I thought I booked as a code-shared Singapore Airline flight, but I got rejected from the lounge access."
Cons: "Singapore airlines use their antique aged flights for services to chc.unconfortable and a poor in-flight entertainment system"
Cons: "without any possibility to call back. or to call again while being late, when arrived with plenty of time before departure. nobody was on the gate. when tryed to do all myself whithin minutes tsa didnt bother to speedup process and it took forever. i missed my flight literally in seconds."
Pros: "Couldn't find a problem"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "the boarding, the attention to detail exactly how i remembered Singapore Airlines from many times i travelled."
Cons: "The food was disgraceful, the entertainment, the quality of the movies was poor.."
Pros: "Excellent"
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "The food for Premium Economy was very poor. The choices were substandard and the food at some meals was inedible. Very disappointing for the price of the tickets. The cabins and equipment seemed old and jaded."
Pros: "everything good"
Cons: "need new toilet"
Cons: "The seat's recline button was broken which meant having to sit for 12+ hours upright. Upon hearing that the seat was broken, the airline crew offered my mother a check for 100 SGD (14% of the ticket value) to be used on Singapore airlines (for the discomfort caused for over 50% of the flight time). They changed her seat from Seoul to Singapore. When I wrote to them about it, they came back saying they had offered her a seat change from LA to Singapore, and she had declined, which is absolutely false. When I called that out, they said, maybe they did not offer aisle seats (note that the broken seat was not aisle). So it just shows that they don't want to accept that they messed up. They even told me that despite their best efforts in pre-flight checks, certain defects only surface when the flight is in progress. Will never ever travel on this airline again."
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."

Cons: "The plane was very cold. A lot of movies were offered but I couldn't find anything I wanted to watch."
Pros: "Crew was great. Food not bad for airline food . It was clean."
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."
Pros: "Liked everything from service to comfort"
Pros: "The seat comes with foot rest attached to the front seat."
Cons: "I asked for decaf coffee and the attendant totally forgot about my request."
Pros: "My partner had a bad leg and the staff were very attentive and helpful in making her as comfortable as possible with extra pillows and getting ice for her ice pack."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable and I couldn't sleep without getting a really stiff neck. The vegetarian oriental meal was bee hoon with vegetables but the amount of vegetables were a lot more than the bee hoon thus making the meal less than filling and satisfying."
Pros: "Singapore crew are on their feet and working for the entire flight. Great service!"
Pros: "Attention to detail, good leg room, entertainment options and a brand new plane"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "The hot towels, the legroom in economy, exceptional service. The helpful crew who don't hesitate to help with luggage. The choice of entertainment. The convenience of a direct SFO to SIN flight with a fast connection to Indian cities."
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "The in flight service was not as good as I remember the last few times I flew with Singapore. ."

Pros: "Food was excellent, timely departure and arrival"
Cons: "Crew was not as friendly as I'm used to."

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "the gates the time intervals and the connections..."
Pros: "We love travelling Singapore Airlines and always try to travel with them if we can"
Pros: "Overall, the Singapore Airlines team are always professional and friendly. They pay attention to every detail and try to make sure everyone is as comfortable as possible. One of my favorite things about this airline is that snack and juice are readily available throughout the entire flight without bothering the flight attendants, say in the middle of the night. This includes fresh fruit and juice, which in my book is a huge plus. Their bathrooms are always clean and include extra cosmetic amenities."
Cons: "Sometimes I feel like the cuisine is a bit too Asian and spicy. I had the fish curry and paid for it later in the flight in the bathroom, if you know what I mean. Also I was disappointed that I could not continue the same movie on this flight, as my previous flight, despite both flights being Singapore Air and using the KrisWorld entertainment system. I think the movies should be the same on each flight. However, the wide selection was great and I watched something else instead and really enjoyed the music selection."
Pros: "Crew was great. Boarding was efficient and timely."
Cons: "Vegetarian fare was not pleasing and seemed extremely repetitive."
Pros: "Have travelled before many times as an individual and always had a good experience. This was the first time travelled with my infant. I had earlier travelled on Emirates last month . I have to say SIA CREW is miles ahead of any airline and my Experience was nothing short of magnificent. The little things the crew does makes the journey more comfortable and enjoyable."
Pros: "Very pleasant, staff was always smiling and eager to help."
Pros: "all was good."
Pros: "The boarding process is smooth with boarding group allocation. Entertainment is not really bad with variety of choice l. The new earphone is better so passenger can sleep without removing the head phone Flight attendants are very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The food is not up to standard compared to other full service airliners and to where it was before."

The fly dubai associated flight was a bit tricky the plane was uncomfortable and I was assigned a seat next to loo.

I got delayed, wasn't told about the Iftar time and the entertainment hub wasn't working even I tri3d scanning the QR code multiple times

Rude crew member.

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "It was okay"
Pros: "Yes comfortable flight"
Cons: "Toilets to be checked for cleanliness more frequently."
Pros: "Yes I like the services and then you will have good stuff for goods"
Cons: "Not to delay the flight for 2 hours !"
Cons: "Flight lest 2 hours late. Didn’t have my choice of meal. Cabin crew very inattentive. Worst flight ever with Emirates in business class"
Cons: "They delayed the flight over entertainment system and that caused me to miss my connection"
Pros: "Emirates always goes above and beyond to keep your experience as good as possible."
Cons: "The boarding process could have been kept more strict and organized."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "I wished I was in business class..."
Pros: "Great service and attitudes by staff."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "South African airlines allowed me to reserve a seat. But Emirates didn't have it in the system when I checked in."
Cons: "Because my husband and I couldn't complete the online check in, we ended up sitting on different ends of the plane."
Pros: "I love everything about Emirates."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "The flight was very comfortable"
Cons: "Operating remote control wasn’t working well ! It was frustrating !!"
Pros: "Nice flight sttendents"
Cons: "Seats too small"
Pros: "Efficient and good actually good for airline food"
Cons: "Electronic equipment a bit out dated and below standard"
Cons: "Didn’t get to pick out seats and got stuck in a middle seat. No opportunity to change, even though I tried to do so a week before the flight as welll as once online check in opened."
Pros: "It was so nice"
Pros: "Good leg room"
Cons: "For an 8 hour flight - we were given a sandwich and breakfast. Expected to be served dinner and breakfast given the time."
Pros: "The flight was ok. We had very little lay over time which meant. We had to run across the airport to get to our flight. This also meant that some luggage got left behind. It was frustrating but atleast the airline ensured that it was delivered in one piece to our home addresses. Give them a plus for that"
Cons: "Left behind luggage Short layover"
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, food was good and entertainment great. Space between front row seats in economy class was good."
Cons: "all good."
Pros: "The flight from Johannesburg to Dubai on an Airbus A380 was the best , the return was on the 777ER it's a bit older avoid it if you can, I prefer the a380 it's roomy, more comfortable and modern, the food was good, the cabin crew very helpful and friendly and both flights were on time. I'll be flying only Emirates from now on"
Cons: "Just the coffee was terrible lol,"
Pros: "Service from staff"
Cons: "Disembarking for passengers needing wheelchair was prolonged and cumbersome; As a result,my one suitcase was lost by another passenger picking up my bag and I ended up spending 3 extra hours at the airport completing formalities!"
Pros: "Hospitality"
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "I enjoyed the wide selection of movies and tv series. I think the food is the best out of all the airlines and I enjoy flying with Emirates."
Cons: "When I boarded my flight, a man and his family took my seat and forced me to sit in the middle of two very large men and made my 7 hour flight very uncomfortable. I purposely chose that seat for leg room and even though business class was empty, they could not provide me with a different seat."
Pros: "E v e r y t h i n g ..... I understand now why they are the number ONE airlines in service. We travel enough to see the BIG difference. Thumbs up. Please don't change !!!!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Friendly staff, great selection of entertainment!"
Cons: "There was nothing to not like"
Pros: "Start scurty things with people who has short time to the next flight"
Pros: "Enerttainment"
Cons: "Got moved to right near the galley and crew talked loudly complaining about people, during sleeping time and the light was too bright to sleep. Limited vegan food available. Everything seemed too much trouble for a lot of staff, they were rude and impolite. Delay boarding in singapore."
Pros: "Stuff and everything else was just magnificent. If you have opportunity don't miss this company"
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was just perfect. Specially stuff"
Pros: "Crew was great, entertainment options expansive, food decent"
Cons: "I had 2.5 hours to get from terminal 5 to 4, check in and get to gate. I almost didn't make it. The lines at emirates check in were insane and didn't move for a long time (online checknin was unavailable). TSA at JFK also. Easy slow and my TSA precheck didn't appear for my pass."
Pros: "They still catch my attention, and while traveling with them I continue to enjoy this airline."
Cons: "As per my Oslo - Dubai review (read there for more details), they cancelled my flight, put me on a flight a day later, and then left me with the bill and the inconvenience. This was the connector out of Dubai and back to Johannesburg. I've flown with them many times and I've picked up one or two small cut backs they've made like no hot towel when you get onboard, only before your arrival, and the meal seems a little more slimmed down (but still pretty tasty), They used have one or two extras which they've now taken away. Not sure why?"
Pros: "Economy class is very comfortable, crew was pleasant and food was good. Overall the 13 hour flight felt pretty painless."
Cons: "I wish the crew would have done a better job controlling passengers who were trying to unload luggage from the overhead while the plane was still taxiing. I had a bag dropped on me and the crew didn't seem to have control over passengers who were blatantly disregarding instructions."
Cons: "Rude and racist cabin crew!"
Pros: "The crew member was excellent,she went all out to make my journey easy and comfortable.I have sent an email to her superior,please use her as an example.if all attendants can serve and see to passengers like her will be beneficial for emirates"
Pros: "Friendly staff awesome planes wonderful experince"
Cons: "Service was a bit slow. Drinks and food took quite sometime to arrive."
Pros: "It was a smooth flight"
Cons: "It was ok"
Pros: "The food was delicious, and I received the special meal I had requested with no problem. Again, great selection of TV shows and movies."
Cons: "The crew seemed a bit put off, just not very friendly. Maybe something had happened that put them all in a bad mood I'm not sure. Despite this they did help people without complaint, but you could tell they didn't want to be there. Again on this flight the TVs were an old model that was difficult to use, you had to push really hard and finagle your finger to get it to read what you were pressing."
Pros: "The Airbus was very good -as comfortable as possible in Economy."
Cons: "It was a little noisy in our seats (we were next to one of the crew areas). But the biggest gripe was about the way we were treated when queuing. We all expect to have to wait our turn but it's incredibly frustrating when 1) the system isn't fair (eg splitting a queue into two then allowing those behind you to go to the front of a new line) and 2) treating us like second class by drawing a curtain in front of our faces so Business class people don't have to see us when they disembark."
Pros: "Granted I was tired after being in transit for 24 hours, but this final of 4 long-haul flights was a real bummer compared to the other flights. Boeing 777 packed to 100% capacity."
Cons: "Really cramped and squished compared to other flights. Toilets at DXB were filthy (I searched around for the cleanest, which was still disgusting), with the cleaning attendant standing around in the restroom doing nothing. Duty Free shops really expensive compared to European airports. Meal on board (breakfast) was really terrible (and that taking into account that airline breakfast is always bad), really the worst I've ever had on a plane, even the Croissant was chewy and very dry. Emirates has become a massive sausage machine people-mover. It has loss its finesse and exceptional service."
Pros: "Everything was great."
Pros: "Available movies are great! Food is really good, but if your seat is in the end of the plaine, your choises of food will be smaller (meat plates ends before you get the opportunity to ask for it)."
Cons: "Emirates is located in a crowded terminal in Cairo and from the airport entrance to the gate can take you more than one hour. Also, some people in this airport don't respect the queue, so you have to pay attention on your place in the line and sometimes, 'fight' for it. My flight had lots of kids, and even asking the parents to control their kids, it didn't happened. During part of my flight I had a child kicking the back of my seat!"
Pros: "The staff were wonderful and efficient. The toilets were clean and the food was much better than my first flight with emirates although the portions were small on the main meal with only four spinach ravioli offered in a tomato sauce."
Cons: "Passengers do not fit on to their seats and overflow into the space you are occupying which is so tiny as it is. There is not enough room to even reach down to pick something up if you drop it. Overhead lockers are full. I think planes either need to be redesigned with sleeping compartments (such as the second class compartments the trains have) for overnight flights or seats need to be slightly larger to make up for the fact most people are larger today."
Pros: "The crew surprised my fiancé and me with a champagne and cheese cake toast in the middle of the flight. It was incredibly thoughtful as I had only told two of them about our new engagement."
Cons: "We could clearly hear several of the crew bickering about things at several points of the flight."
Pros: "Nice spacious aircraft , nice catering , friendly crew."
Cons: "THe Hostess was not attentive and had to ask for things a few times. No goody basket was given although some pax did get it."
Pros: "The good hospitality and customer service from the airline staff and agents over the phone."
Cons: "I disliked the feeling of being targeted and discriminated against. I was forced to undergo additional unwarranted extensive security checks as I was boarding the plane. I was asked to step aside and have my carry on rechecked while I was being interrogated by an officer. This is all in addition to going through an extensive security check at the security checkpoint. This procedure is Unjust and Humiliating for innocent passengers try to take a flight with absolutely nothing to hide."

Everything good

This flight was cancelled

Pros: "The crew was super attentive. The seats were really confortable. I loved that the seat would completely flatten to make a « bed », wonderfully for sleeping!"
Cons: "The check in and boarding in Kathmandu was really not good. I requested wheelchair assistance when I booked, and was never offered a wheelchair nor any assistance for that matter ..."
Pros: "The crew really cares about their passengers"
Pros: "Yes"
Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Perfect"
Cons: "Nice"
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."
Pros: "Food and leg room"
Cons: "All was fine"
Pros: "As always the crew was so nice...really catered to our needs on the long flight."
Pros: "Everything alright"
Pros: "The crew was super nice"
Cons: "Food. Usually I have had no complains with food in Qatar but the chicken dinner/lunch was really bad this time."
Cons: "The vegetarian option for breakfast was a stale waffle with apple compote. Inedible."
Pros: "The crew was amazing."
Cons: "The customer service from Qatar Airways. No one communicates and it was very frustrating to deal with."
Pros: "Food selection. However, the snacks need to be readily available on long flights."
Cons: "Entertainment is lacking behind other international carriers"
Cons: "Need FREE WIFI and CHARGING Ports Which are ABSOLUTE MUST IN ANY AIRCRAFT."
Cons: "19 hours layover and Qatar airlines doesn’t want to accommodate a hotel room after charging Me almost $1500 for a flight. This is a horrible service Qatar airlines."
Pros: "Crew not as nice."
Cons: "More hospitable crew"
Pros: "wanted an isle seat because of back issues and was arranged without any hassle."
Cons: "17 hour transit in Doha and no accommodation was provided. Though I booked it from a third party I belive QA is at least responsible for making sure that the vendors let the user know that there will be NO accommodation provided. This information is also not readily accessible when searching online."
Pros: "Aircraft was very nice and comfortable. Flight crew as friendly."
Cons: "Zero customer service, absolute waste of money,. I should have read reviews before using your services"
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: "Excellent entertainment very friendly crew"
Cons: "Food is becoming predictable Qatar Airways"
Cons: "The ticketing agent told me I had a window seat, but in reality I had a middle seat! For a 14 hour flight, that’s a big difference! Highly disappointed when i got to the gate and the plane had no window seats available."
Cons: "Seat to LA was broken"
Pros: "It was normal flight"
Cons: "I have a layover for 12 hrs and Qatar Airways didn't offer me a hotel."
Pros: "12 hrs transit must give Hotel, without Hotel it was bad!"
Cons: "More than 10 hrs transit must give Hotel !!"
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: "Everything except food"
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "Cabin was too hot and not enough bathrooms."
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."
Pros: "Not much except the on board crew are nice."
Cons: "The first flight from KTM the TV didn't work and I didn't fit into the seat. The most uncomfortable seat in a long time. The second flight from Doh to JFK was not good. I was put through 3 security checks when I already went through security in KTM. On the 3rd check my Dutyfree whiskey was taken from me because they would not let me take it in my carry on. They said I could take it if I checked my carry on bag (one backpack). My carry on has everything I need for a 16 hour flight. Plus, I had my very expensive camera gear in there too so I could not do this. This was unfair and Qatar needs to step up and return my Dutyfree whiskey and reimburse for the flight without TV. I will never suggest Qatar to anyone."
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Flight attendant are very attending. Overall, excellent performance. love them and would fly again from Qatar Airways. Food was great and just the way we would like to eat."
Cons: "Some Cabin Crew are RUDE fromEven though Cabin Crew manage to gave us what we preferred to eat. They are the best. Doha -Kathmandu. They treated some senior citizens passengers who wouldn’t understand english with some disrespect. In addition, we had some problem with meal that was pre-ordered. It was probably system glitch but our meal selection wasn’t registered and Crew didn’t have idea about our meal."
Pros: "the room on the plane, the food, the service was all great ! I was worried about the international flight but Qatar made it a great experience!!!"
Cons: "I can't think of anything that was negitive"
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: "Service was excellent. Check in was efficient & welcoming. Staff was very friendly & helpful."
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: "A comfortable safe flight. Steph was very helpful and nice and kept us updated when there was a delay on the flight. There were no problemsThe food was airline food and I don't really care for it but I don't think there's anything that can be helped about that. :) my face it was processed promptly and my reservation was handled promptly at the information desk ."
Cons: "The food was airline food and I don't really care for it but I don't think there's anything that can be helped about that. :-)"
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."

Everything was good

NA

You need to improve your food quality

I asked for a milk to my baby she told me sorry we don’t have extra for your baby. They tried people definitely i so that if you speak Turkish you get what you need. Last time travel with Turkish Airlines.

Pros: "Nice flight"
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "Need better food"
Pros: "friendly staff"
Cons: "encouraging passengers to do more social distancing at gates"
Pros: "Some crew was attentive, others were not. Piloting was good"
Cons: "Upgraded seats in the planes, especially business class, seats did not work properly or recline all the way, very uncomfortable. Food was mediocre at best, movie library needs updating. I'm also not sure why an older model of this aircraft is used on such a long haul flight."
Pros: "Entertainment and food are always reliably good on Turkish."
Cons: "Ground crew was very poor at communication, no one warned us we would need a visa; we spent hours and hours queuing for what could have been sorted out in advance. Communication was terrible. The flight was delayed due to Pakistan closing air space. Turkish rescheduled but no real help in Istanbul."
Pros: "The crew is friendly, efficient check in and boarding. Food is pretty good."
Cons: "Turkish Air keeps their planes unbearably hot. I’ve complained before and they always say it’s “Normal” for the industry. I fly over 1000,000 a year and I’m telling you it’s not. Also, I bought an “Extra” room seat and the seat is still ridiculously small for anyone over 6 feet."
Pros: "The staff the staff the staff. They made the trip so enjoyable. The A330-300 aircraft was smooth and silent. Very impressed"
Cons: "The seats in business class were not as soft as they could be but very impressed overall and good value for the cost of the business class ticket"
Cons: "The Crew was on top of passengers requests. I asked three different crew memberrs for paper towels and no one delivered."
Cons: "being treated like a drug dealer at the boarding gate #312 and having passport / boarding pass checked several times"
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: "Perfect take off and landing. Very smooth flight with good service"
Cons: "Totally desorganized boarding, wrong door on ticket, no priority line....just not the way you expect things done by Turkish Airlines"
Cons: "Options for vegetarians were not really good."
Pros: "First leg (Mia to Instanbul) crew was excellent!"
Cons: "second leg (Istanbul to Johannesburg) crew were rude!!!"
Pros: "I did nit like anything..."
Cons: "I hate kayak.."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "flight sells man were horrible. they were not helpful nor caring, and didnt help me with my problem."
Cons: "The seat pocket of the seat in front of me was broken, which resulted in a metal wire poking into my legs for the entire duration of the flight. Not only was it uncomfortable and bordering on painful; but this could also potentially be dangerous in the event of an emergency!!!"
Pros: "Crew is polite and professional."
Cons: "1. Limited legroom and space. 2. Would like additional cabin service for water etc. Also would like a non-dairy option for breakfast."
Cons: "Our flight from Kathmandu was delayed so we missed our connecting flight to Vienna. We don't know why it took so long to organize the hotel. Turkish Airlines was ready with new boarding passes but we waited two hours at the hotel desk to get a bus to the hotel where we again had to wait till they gave each passenger a room. If they organized the boarding passes ahead of time, why not the hotel? So we were quite exhausted. The plane was again delayed leaving Istanbul. Movies on flight not what they used to be."
Pros: "Great food, comfortable seats. I didn’t go business class, but tbh I think flyin business class this route is a waste."
Cons: "Having to stop over in Bishkek and deplane before going on to Mongolia. Why do we have to go through security again when we’re getting onto the same plane with the same items?"
Cons: "I am handicap and had to take my carry on baggage off the plane with the help of other passengers so I decided to take a different airline back to my surprise the help me with my luggage and carry on and from the moment I arrived at the gate toll I got out of the airport in jfk I was not allowed to pick ip my baggage they did everything I would like a call back from you 2036757227"
Pros: "Service, food, staff—all excellent!"
Cons: "The cabins on both flights were too warm."
Pros: "Great service in the airplane plus they offer some amenities like slippers, tooth paste and toothbrush, they offer you wet towels to clean and refresh yourself during he flight. Really good."
Pros: "I liked how smooth our flight was thanks to the flight crew. The entertainment was great and helped pass the time. The flight crew was great and attentive."
Cons: "The food was ok but I wish I knew a way to have vegetarian options. I would have liked some kind of fruit options as well."
Pros: "Flight was delayed. Flight time was changed 5 times."
Cons: "Very disorganized the gate checking, staff ne d hospitality training . You ESP not have time for your queries and concerns . They are always in a hurry to finish talkign to you . Poor hygiene. The bathrooms are very dirty and has nomjand soap to wash your hands . Male staff in board come across unpolite. ingelt inwelcomed by the male flight attendant port side at the back.?"
Pros: "Good entertainment system with lots of options."
Cons: "The plane was uncomfortably warm throughout the (long!) flight, which made it difficult to get any rest."
Cons: "The 2 flights were delayed, I went to my work late Both bags were broken"
Pros: "On time Good service Just excellent It's first time for me with turkish airline but I love it"
Cons: "No thing"
Pros: "The flight attendants were lovely, I really like the fact that they were friendly and made me feel safe!"
Cons: "My luggage didn't arrive in Atlanta and when I called to inquire about it , the lady I spoke to didn't have the info. She seemed ignored when I told her they said it was supposed to be here earlier."
Pros: "They accommodated my service dog even without being in the system.They are always very nice and look after me perfectly!I was super late for boarding on the way from NYC and they helped me out!"
Cons: "I called the Customer service to let them know I have a service dog and she wasn't in the system neither the way to Hungary or back!I had a little trouble because of that!I asked to sit at the isle for the same reason and they gave me a seat and then moved me because they said I cannot sit there with a dog.They wanted to give me a middle seat but fortunately a nice girl swapped with me for the Isle seat!"
Pros: "Outstanding service Excellent food Adequate entertainment Seat recline was good for economy"
Cons: "For a long flight (8+ hours) legroom on this Airbus was quite cramped Again poor boarding announcements resulted in very chaotic boarding process"
Pros: "It is very hard to separate the hassle of air travel from the airlines so the size of your seat and the many security checks that infuence our opinion are beyond their power. The food, service, little overnight packet and staff were excellent."
Cons: "The general hassle of air travel. Small seats, little space and the herding thru security and long lines. You really have to be slim and trim to fit in the seats and walk the long distances from one gate to another. Great motivation for getting in shape and loosing weight."
Pros: "The food was great!"
Cons: "I booked my ticket on Kayak two months prior to the departure date. The whole reason I booked it with Turkish Airlines was because the seats were listed as "lay flat". So I paid $150 more over the other airlines for the lay flat seating on my 8 hour flight from Katmandu to Istanbul and another 10 hours on to JFK. Well the seats weren't lay flat so I feel like I got played by Kayak and didn't have a very comfortable flight."
Pros: "Great seat (3A), great service and food. Very friendly crew. Entertainment is great with plenty of movies."
Cons: "Check in in Istanbul was long and confusing due to new safety measures. I had 4 different passport checks with one pat down search and carry on search. Not enough time to even enjoy the Turkish air lounge. However I do. appreciate the safety measures and the effort that come with it. I rather be safe than sorry. The security personnel was very friendly."
Pros: "I eventually arrived at the destination."
Cons: "Difficult to communicate with cabin crew due to lack of English. Flight was delayed by 1 hour. General atmosphere on plane was chaotic I think due to the small plane and length of flight as large numbers of people needed to use toilets."
Pros: "I love the food, the crew was very nice, great service. And wonderful entertainment. I love to fly by Turkish in the future. I enjoyed everything."
Pros: "Not trying to be flattering here but it really is a good airline."
Pros: "The variety of films on show was decent"
Cons: "The crew skipped our aisle whilst delivering the toiletry bags, some announcements were made purely in Turkish without regard to English passengers. The boarding gate from Istanbul was opened much later than the advertised times."
Cons: "Had to cancel due tp safety situation in Turkey (bombings, Dept of State warning). I had flight insurance but Kayak did not refund a dime."
Pros: "Love the entertainment choices, behind able to watch while seasons of TV shows, new movies. Makes the time pass easily."
Cons: "When you are doing a long flight, you don't want fruit to be the only choice for dessert. It's hard enough being gluten free but to find that nearly every airline just thinks that fruit is acceptable is disappointing. They did provide a gluten free bread roll rather than the usual rice cakes but on two recent legs, didn't heat it. When I told the flight crew the second time that it is inedible when not heated, he was great and said he would do that. And it is nice to eat grilled vegetables which are delicious but sometimes particularly on a long flight, a bit more variety is needed. Turkish Airlines is excellent but fixing this would make it great."
Pros: "excellent food, service"
Pros: "It got me to the next airport alive"
Cons: "There was not much to watch on tv and not enough alcohol"
Cons: "My new iphone was stolen off the plane. I have complained to the turkish airline people. They tell me fill out feed back forms. I did no response yet. I want to be compensated for my stolen phone"
Pros: "Enjoyed the flight, airports, service."
Cons: "Poor customer service, rude airport staff in Istanbul, nobody speak English in airport. I had two 85 years old lady with me and they had wheelchair on their ticket, and a I asked the airport staff in Istanbul but, nobody care, that is bad experience in my life."
Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Food you have made batter next time please"
Pros: "The crew was impeccable , but unfortunately no character , no personality or friendliness . Very stoic and good as far as service. But not friendly at all . And I was in BC, brought them chocolates and e everything"
Cons: "The crew could be more friendly , more personal"
Pros: "Great flight....enjoyed it thoroughly....."
Pros: "The crew was sufficient and polite. Seats are average. Food was extremely limited. Underwhelmed but, frankly, exhausted with the process of trying to get out."
Cons: "Communication of flight departure time was not provided causing us to miss our flight and requiring over 2 hours on a cell call to Bangladesh to book a 24 hr delay which was further confused by computer glitches. Poor customer service at the flight checkin desk in Kathmandu who are, apparently, limited in what they can assist with."
Pros: "it would be a lie to say i liked anything"
Cons: "everything by alot"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Next time give money back to people for cancelling or changing flights. Never flying with Kayak again"
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Pros: "Crew and food"
Cons: "Entertainment"
Pros: "Crew was great, food was great, seat was comfortable"
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: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "Boarding anything in Nepal is a adventure.They change gates on you as you are on the way.Then just sit and wait."
Pros: "Food was very bad so much salted"
Cons: "Make the food delicious not crabs"

Pros: "Timing was maintained"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Entertaiment is very good."
Cons: "Cancelling my flight on both ways. Since they merge 2 flights in one,flight attendants are under staff to help and take care other passengers like me. Food have limited option who cannot eat spicy food."

Cons: "Wasn't served any food at all. And I had to go and get my own water from the staff"
Pros: "A380"
Cons: "Limited food options and quantity."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Food, stewards are rude and unprofessional."
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: "Crew was helpful mostly. They at least tried to be helpful but we always had to ask for water even though it was a 12hour flight"
Cons: "Bad food, no proper boarding process at Abu Dhabi and rarely bring water."
Pros: "The staff was outstanding... The plane was adequate... The food was just barely okay. I was somewhat disappointed having read trip advisory and kayak recommendations on airlines prior to leaving."
Cons: "Flew over on Royal Jordanian Airlines. The plane was like new the food was fantastic and the staff was as well. On at the home the staff was outstanding but the rest was just okay. The return trip was not as good as the Royal Jordanian experience.."
Pros: "I was very pleased with this airline. Will try to fly with Etihad again if the opportunity presents itself"
Pros: "All ground staff and flight crew were welcoming , professional and helpful. The seats, trays, and screens were clean. The flight crew kept the restrooms clean, which can be quite a task on long flights. If Etihad is an option in my future travels, I will likely prefer them over other carriers."
Pros: "The planes are comfortable and the crew are all very nice and helpful! I had not read the carry-on baggage restrictions well and my bag ended up being just a little too big so it had to be checked. Although it wasn't a good situation for me, it was my fault and I appreciate that you hold to your policy!"
Pros: "crew"
Cons: "bed"
Pros: "Airline."
Cons: "Great staff"
Cons: "Was not allowed to board flight, had to purchase a second d ticket, told no seats available until Sept 17 which was a lie, after an additional charge of $750.10. Could not reach customer service. Ended up buying a ticket with another airline. Would like some reimbursement in this."
Pros: "I loved the entertainments, watching different movies on the screen"
Cons: "The care by the cabin crews. They rarely responded to the calls, very arrogant, come from different background with very poor training in passenger's care."
Pros: "The service Chairs Entertaining screen Crew Food In my flight from cai to AUH EY 654 4AUG There's cabin crew guy I didn'tremmeber his name ,, he's really awesome and quite and polite and really want appriciate him He toke care of me because I was sick and he made everything for me to. Be comfort Thnx Etihad"
Cons: "The staff at Kathmandu airport Etihad check-in counter was very rude. He asked too many unnecessary personal questions and asked to present the document to verify."
Pros: "Comfort on such a long flight was much better than other airlines. Food was great"
Cons: "Awful crew it was. They were non co operative to us."
Cons: "Baggage ground staff behavior is very bad..Not allowed me to carry stuff which I purchased inside the airport..will never travel and will also request my company not to buy tickets through Eithad"

Cons: "I got violently ill after getting off the flight. The only food I had in the last 24 hours had been from Etihad. I threw up for two days straight."
Cons: "Etihad would not put me on an early flight despite having free seats on the plane. As a result of which I had a 7.5hour layover in Abu Dhabi. If they had moved me to the earlier flight, it would have left a lasting impression on me. I am looking to join a new loyalty program (from Lufthansa) and this gesture could have gone a long way."
Pros: "Punctual"
Cons: "Nothing not to like."
Pros: "Flight was comfortable and the staff was attentive and friendly. The food was goiod and the seat spacious and comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding was chaos in Abu Dhabi. Business class passengers were not given priority boarding and were forced to stand in long ques in the heat and to be squeezed into a bus with all the others. This happened both in my outbound and return flights. This meant queing in the heat out on the tarmac with the economy passengers."
Cons: "The flight from Riyadh ALWAYS leaves late. Arabs have so sense of punctuality."
