Pros: "Nothing special."
Cons: "Meal was disappointing. Beef was overcook and hard. Service quality is just okay."
Pros: "Crew were helpful and attended to any needs that we requested. As I am a big person the seat is never that comfortable but Singapore Airlines seating is more spacious than other companies I have flown with."

Cons: "Somewhat limited recent release movies compared to Emirates."
Pros: "Great foods and services"
Cons: "The plane needs upgrade business class seats"
Cons: "Flat beds on second flight"
Pros: "Excellent"
Cons: "No complain . It’s singapore airlines and not dirty air India or jet Airways"
Cons: "WiFi didn’t work on 3 of the 4 flights although all purportedly had it. Also didn’t work the majority of the time in the Business Class Lounge in Singapore. Food was mediocre both on flights and in the lounge. Movie selection could hardly have been worse."
Cons: "Having a reservation on Alaska for the first leg of the trip would have been nice. They didn't expect us, we had no confirmation number that Alaska recognized so we were denied boarding. How much else could have gone wrong?"
Pros: "Kindy flight attedances,,smooth boarding,,delicious food"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "everything..Singapore airlines is a amazing airline !!! there is a reason why they are no 1 for so many years..."
Pros: "Service was excellent!"
Cons: "We had to go through security after coming in from international and I went through a biometric scanner which I’ve done 100’s of Times I was very unnecessarily felt up for 10 minutes. I had shorts and a T-shirt on, and was pretty sure after the 1st round of groping that there was nothing there"

Pros: "I have tall family members and they had enough legroom even at the back of the plane. Service was excellent. Snacks and drinks were regular on offer even between meal. Very nice, professional staff even after 13 hours of flight. Just excellent. Thank you for this very pleasant experience. Will definitely fly Singapore Airlines again."
Cons: "There is room for improvement with the special meals. The non gluten brun was very hard. In general it would be nice if passengers could pre-order from a set selection of foods online what they would like on their tray. This would hopefully lower the amount of food that sadly goes to waste. Also it would be nice to have gluten free snacks on board. Flying with celiac disease is not easy."
Pros: "Excellent crew, service and food"
Pros: "Everything was excellent, and we even arrived 30 minutes earlier than scheduled..... super."
Cons: "no problems"
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."

Cons: "Not much. This airline is up there with the best."

Cons: "Too cold"
Cons: "This flight is on an old plane. The entertainment system was dated and the seats didn't recline properly. Food wasn't very good and they offered a very limited selection considering it is a 7-hour flight. Not worth doing Singapore Airlines business class for this leg."

Pros: "The service and the flight to and from Narita Airport."
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Delayed flight from Shanghai due to air traffic issues, so I had a 10 minute window to make my connection in Singapore. Ground staff was waiting for me with a small car after I disembarked to drive me to the gate. And I somehow made my connection. Excellent service. Obviously my checked bag didn't make it, but I was told in advance and was kept updated before boarding and immediate after I disembarked at my final destination. When I went to the baggage service counter, they were already ready for me, had filled out my paperwork, and just needed an address to confirm the delivery of my suitcase. I'm super impressed to this attention to detail."
Pros: "Staff was the best, always smiling and going beyond expectations to assure you enjoy your flight and I certainly did. Take off was a breeze. Landing a little bumpy but nothing to cry about. I will fly Singapore whenever possible from now on."

They gave her a toy, asked for her name, and checked on us often. They also gave my husband and I an option for early food service so that one of us could help our daughter eat. The movie selection was great. Take off, flight and landing were smooth. And we arrive half an hour early both directions!"

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."

The entertainment selection was great, boarding process was smooth. However, the staff were so rude, my tray table was broken so had drinks split on me. I had a child coughing on me and kicking me in her sleep. The person in front of me put his seat down so far that my knees were against the seat (I’m only 5’9). The person behind me used her tray table to sleep so I couldn’t put my seat back. She woke up for breakfast, by which point I wanted sleep so I put my seat back and she complained about it so I had to put the seat upright again!

Pros: "Boarding and Crew are excellent toilets are clean Gluten Free meals are available, that's a big plus"

Cons: "Intertainment"
Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "The seats on the 777-300ER were tiny compared to the seats on the A380 from JFK to dubai. My wife and I are both small people and we were cramped. This is very unfair to us and even so to larger people on such a long leg The entertainment screens were also very poor. Small, low res"

At one point she vomited and there was an attendant near us and granted that it was time for take off and no one can be standing up but after that she didn't even offered anything to clean up or ask us if everything is alright and she even had the look of disgust on her face while she was sitting down. All throughout the duration of the flight no one go for the extra mile to assist me as I was alone with a toddler. I have to ask for the bassinet 3x and it took them a long time. No one gave us the toddler meal which I ordered previously. I thought emirates was a better airline than qatar airways but I was gravely mistaken. Even China southern can do better than that. Horrible."
Cons: "Screen was black and white most of flight"
Pros: "The flight was empty and the luxury to choose your open row of seats"
Pros: "The Captain spoke to us a few times and the crew were absolutely amazing. Best flight Ive ever been on."

I liked the aircraft crew the most. Foods could have been better with more options and snack for kids available.

The only thing that really bothered me was an obnoxiously loud and annoying child sitting next to her father, who had headsets on and made no attempt to discipline the child. I thought maybe the staff should have said something to him in a polite manner

The bathroom is not that good.. dirty.. the sink is not properly draining.. (all bathrooms - all flights- back&forth) . There was no toilet paper seat either going to DC. Crew is not picking up trays/trash right away. Once, we even brought our tray in the back. Food should be mix of western& middle east. middle east food is a bit too much for some passengers- too smelly, spicy,— The crew are nice though. Very helpful and friendly.

I had an exchange ticket from Qatar airways, which meant I had the boarding pass for the Alaska airways flight. It took 40 minutes to get me and another passenger onto the flight because it didn’t have us listed as a passenger on the flight.

Pros: "Good boarding. They do their best to make sure their passengers will be able to board the aircraft smoothly. Crew members are quite attentive and helpful."
Cons: "When making a review, I make comparisons with other airlines. I was expecting that Qatar Airways would be better than Emirates. It is my first time to fly Qatar airways, just to see if it's worth flying with this airline since it was the Best Airline in the world for 2015. But Emirates improved so much better that they overtaken the throne of Qatar Airways.. When you promise 5-star comfort and luxury, it should be what is promised.. Key points: 1.) Beverages should be served more than just twice during this 9 hour flight. It's a bit sarcastic that you flash a reminder on the screen that says "Keep Hydrated" but beverages were served only twice. I always had to ask for 2 glasses of water, overall 4 glasses of water on this 9 hour flight. And I can say that I got dehydrated. 2.) No hot towels for sanitary before food is served. I had to go to lavatory, wash my hands and put some alcohol before eating. Which is kinda hassle.. Sanitary is very important. 3.) I spent 8 hours layover in Doha before my flight to Milan. No complimentary meal. (Emirates provide complimentary meal if I have long layover in Dubai) 4.) I don't know if it's due to bad weather, but this flight, QR 933 was the roughest flight I have been on, not just short turbulence but long hours, maybe 3 hours. I was so dizzy and couldn't sleep. I signed up on privileged member club because I'm looking forward that Qatar would be the best choice for Airline. This review is just one of many reviews that should be looked at. Considering that you should continuously develop and aim to bounce back on the top. Do not settle for "okay", do not settle for second spot. Be the best, and compete for the first. Thank you for a safe flight. I'm looking forward for another flight with you. -Jerson Belir, first time flyer"

Cons: "1. Not smiley at all. 2. I asked for a blanket as my 2 yrs old was sleeping and I have to ask three times and finally I got it. 3. I asked for arrival form 40 min before landing and the air hostess said later and she didn’t give me one ."

Pros: "Crew was cool and service was good."
Cons: "Because I purchased the ticket from kayak I feel like they punished me. I had a 14 hour layover. I went to the counter ask about a meal voucher and they said I didn't qualify because I purchased through a 3rd party and so I sat there for 14 hours dreaming of when I would eat next."
Pros: "Something unusual happened on this leg. A passenger became quite ill, and the captain decided to fly back to Abu Dhabi 2.5 hours after our takeoff from there. That certainly says something about Etihad's customer service. I doubt United would have done the same. A crew member told me that the double back meant an extra fuel cost of $50,000. The moral is: make sure you've got your medications in order—or whatever your health requires—before you board an airplane."
Cons: "Overall the flight was okay. What was disappointing was that our luggage didn't reach Prague at the same time. I have a meeting tomorrow and really wanted to take a bath upon arriving at the hotel. The problem is, all my clothes were in my luggage. Add to the fact that I have an early meeting tomorrow and I don't know what time my luggage will arrive."
Pros: "Comfort on such a long flight was much better than other airlines. Food was great"
Cons: "Very cramped plane (for a 787 Dreamliner)... though I am a bigger fellow, it must be said. The window seat was almost unbearable."
Pros: "food, seat screen"
Cons: "Air bumps"
Cons: "Not all my boarding passes were issued when I left my final location. I was told I wound get my final boarding pass at boarding. I then had to wait in a lone line at my final flight and nearly missed my flight."

Cons: "Not much"

Cons: "Boarding was chaotic Crew wss average in service"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Great staff, very responsive. I was upgraded - i feel that Etihad Gold members are really respected making it well worthwhile showing loyalty to the airline"
Pros: "The sits we're very comfortable, the food was great and there was a flight attendant who was very friendly and very professional, her name was Giorgana from Rumania, I was impressed with how polite, and efficient she was , smiling to all the passengers and doing a great job."

Pros: "food was excellent."

Pros: "Punctual"
Cons: "Nothing not to like."
Pros: "The service was great."
Cons: "The food was not up to the standard"
Cons: "The flight from Riyadh ALWAYS leaves late. Arabs have so sense of punctuality."

Cabin crew

Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Timing"
Cons: "Seat comfort and leg space"
Pros: "The seats on the plane are fairly comfortable and the meals provided are good. Vanity kits handed out were good too"
Cons: "It starts off with a chaotic luggage check in. No order, the staff take breaks on a whim and leave long queues of passengers waiting to check in their bags. The cabin crew looked rather annoyed at us boarding the plane and didn't bother to smile or greet as we came on board. Since the flight was at 1:30am, we fell asleep almost immediately however the cabin crew woke us up by vigorously shaking my shoulder to ask if we wanted food. The vanity kits were just thrown onto our laps while we slept. The on board entertainment system did not work on the entire plane for the duration of the flight."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Connecting flight was late, which meant spending less time at the attrocious Jeddah airport"

Pros: "The crew is amazingly kind. The seats on the flight have a good amount of recline and the entertainment system is good, though you can't turn off Arabic subtitles."
Cons: "I would not recommend flying through Jeddah. Any time there is terrible. The airport is not equipped to handle the volume. There is only one restroom for 3000 people, no seats.

Pros: "Not on time the flight. Delay 30 minutes"
Pros: "The infotainment was good."
Cons: "Be careful the officer at the plane door panicked when he saw that I have 3 miniature alcoholic drinks! He frowned, asked to take them and put my passport data on the computer. It would have been more professional to tell people when boarding that we need to dispose any alcoholic liquor"
Cons: "The flight from Manila to Jeddah was delayed 4 hours prior to departure, and then the connecting flight from Jeddah to Dubai was canceled. I was put on another flight, but my wait time for that connection was almost 6 hours."

Pros: "Everything about the flight"
Cons: "Boarding, food, seat comfort"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Food, airplane age, they boarded us and then kept us inside airplane for 45 mins because of bad weather at destination airport. They should confirm flight info before boarding."
Cons: "Departed at 1310 o e hour late and all that time insid the plane"
Pros: "Overall it was an ok night flight. language handling."
Cons: "Delays with taking off, arriving late. No entertainment."
Pros: "Very bad flight , didn’t like the plane, toilets were not cleaned , not much assisted and poor handling by the crew Sine most of the people were coughing, I felt like I was sitting in the hospital"

SOMEONE NOT BEING FRIENDLY? PUSHING FOR SOME SCORE AN EXTRA LOAD ON SOME ONE??? YES. PLEASE CONSIDER, WHY THAT SURVEY DISAPPEARS, REMOVED, DELETED, OR MAKING MORE NUMBER-SCORE-FOR OWN EFFICENCY?"

Cons: "Flight was 40 minutes late at departure airport. Missed up all the luggage in destination airport. Waiting long time for bus shuttle to come at the airplane."
Cons: "The flight back from Dhaka to JFK had an extended 1.5 hour delay at Riyadh. And I did not get anything from the airlines. It was troublesome when the delay was on top of actual 3 hours lay over."
Pros: "Getting off"
Cons: "The fact Saudia lost our baggage and makes any claim for it next to impossible. keep asking us to fill in irrelevant forms. The food was hideous, the toilers never cleaned and I expected a better standard and quality of every aspect of the airline. Ethiopian airlines run a better service and don't have their budget. Would avoid at all costs"
Pros: "Good timing, boarding and flight services"
Cons: "Everything was ok during the flight but would like to arrange for driver services after landing in Madina through Saudi airlines"
Pros: "none"
Cons: "Airline boarding pass / check in counter behavior is unacceptable. They have very poor knowledge how to handle domestic to international flight passenger. Jeddah counter representative even don't know domestic and international terminal are different location in Ryadh; they even don't know passenger has to collect luggage and go to international terminal for final destination. As per Jeddah airlines counter supervisor, domestic and internation terminals are in same location whereas in reality we need to go with a bus. original flight was 4 hours connecting time but airlines changed to 2 hours. We are lucky that we don't missed our flight because we were 1 minutes late to close check in / collect boarding pass; as per counter representative. one of the biggest issue was as follows: when we went to Jeddah counter, we have requested for both boarding pass (Jeddah to Ryadh to JFK) including baggage to be collected to JFK; unfortunate duty supervisor behavior was unacceptable. He was very rood. He was repeating same word and telling "do you understand english" same word again and again with aggressive mood whereas he is very poor in english."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Food terrible little and no taste."
Cons: "There is almost no entertainment for kids - the provided one is very limited and not suitable for +13 hr flight. I tried to ask the crew for some chocklettes or nuts for kids as snacks and they answered that they don't have it !!! The lunch meal didn't have meat option - just chicken or fish !!?? Small airplane and not really comfortable seats"
Pros: "Boarding office well treating and provided very good service. Food was good"
Cons: "The crew on the airplan was not well trained. Limited entertainment for kids"
Cons: "No head phones"
Pros: "The price is really good, good food and service, I recommend it to everyone"
Pros: "Good service and cheaper"
Pros: "The cabin crew were the only bright spot on the whole flight. I give them credit for putting up with the rest of the crew and being helpful with all of my problems."
Cons: "Where to begin? First the flight was delayed by two hours, then I was put in a seat with a broken entertainment screen again (second time this has happened to me in two flights), asked to be moved to another seat that turned out to also have a broken screen but at least had more legroom. After landing the ground crew took nearly an hour to get bags off of the plane, thus ensuring that the delayed takeoff caused me to miss my connection. I was given no compensation or even an apology for the delays or the broken entertainment on the aircraft, just a typical Saudi grudging attitude about doing their jobs. Do not under any circumstances fly Saudia. I will happily pay double in the future to avoid them."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, and it took more than an hour to get my luggage."
Pros: "comfortable chair"
Cons: "staff , food and baggage service"
Cons: "All was well."

Cons: "Toilet infight , nobody cleans them during flight"
