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

Pros: "Fast boarding. Early arrival. Comfortable seat."
Cons: "I had to ask 3 times for an arrival card from the crew. Bread was dry. There should have been a breakfast served prior to landing, but no food service after 1 a.m. though flight arrived at 7:40 a.m. Timing of meals was not convenient for me at all. They wake you up at 1 a.m. for your main dinner. I would have preferred to sleep until 5 a.m. then have a good breakfast. The amenity kit in Business Class was substandard when compared to other airlines"

Pros: "With 15 and 1/2 hours on the flight ahead, I was dreading the long, tedium of sitting for hours upon hours. But Singapore Airlines made the time fly with friendly service right when you were getting hungry and pleasant assistance when requested. Thank you Singapore Airline Flight Attendants!!"
Pros: "Very nice crew."
Cons: "Why are the slippers/socks not distributed before take off or already in the seat pocket? Why is the food order taken after take of and not before? Why does singapore airline have old seats I new planes? What happened to the earlier leader? Friendly staff alone does not make the deal.

Pros: "To be fair, my rating will be very high due to it being the first time flying Business Class on Singapore Airlines. Unfortunately it was a short flight so I didn't et a chance to experience the whole service properly as I needed. I felt like royalty with the service offered by your staff who consistantly came to check if everything was in order without making a nuisance. Fantastic food and beverage options too. Overall a great experience, but would have liked it to be a 12hr experience instead of 5."

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

Pros: "Seat was very comfortable."
Cons: "Everything was good, one little thing, just had to wait for crew member to respond to the bell."
Cons: "I do not find anything to complain. My first choice will be Emirates."
Pros: "Flight crew were excellent."
Pros: "Boarding and Crew are excellent toilets are clean Gluten Free meals are available, that's a big plus"
Cons: "Lots of movies to choose from however I felt the choices were similar in a way! ( Example: you'll find the Drama movies are almost the same as the Romantic movies or the Comedy movies)"
Cons: "During checkin process they weighed my laptop bag along with my hand baggage a small suitcase. Laptop is considered as personal item. The combined weight exceeded 7 kg and hence I had pay for excess baggage even though my checked in Baggage were close correct 23 kg limit. This was an issue with most"
Cons: "Laptop bags are not allowed at New Delhi Airport. Only one carry on is allowed with no laptop bag. These are not Emirates policies. New Delhi airport has its own policies. Highly frustrating at that moment because these are not the baggage allowances anywhere else in the world"
Cons: "Crew was a little less cooperative than my usual Emirates experiences"
Pros: "Good overall service."
Cons: "With more focus on menat and India what used to be a good airline is slowly turning to cattle carrier."
Cons: "We asked them to provide us with assistance as we had 3 infants with us but no one helped us from check in to boarding gate. Even though we called emirates customer care to afd oyr name in assistance when we booked the ticket but at airport they said we cannot privide any assistance . Moreover one of our family member had wheel chair assistance they never provided wheel chair at Dubai airport reason being they said they have shortage of wheel chairs. Such a bad experience we had !! I will never recommend anyone to travel with Emirates."

Cons: "Crew not bad"

Pros: "The overall experience was good from boarding to disembark. emirates is a quality airline with affordable pricing. Planes were neat and clean cabin crew did their job at their best."
Cons: "In some instances their was a shortage of food option. Although the menu said you could have a choice but some of the choices were exhausted by the time crew served it to the half of the travellers and the rest have to eat whatever was leftover. I think Emirates should stock a bit more of the food especially on a plane like Airbus 380. Its a huge aircraft and passengers sting at the vey end had to wait almost 45 min to 1 hr to get their food and that too was whatever leftover. They should make efforts to server all the passengers within a short amount to time rather than keep them waiting for so long. Most of the time more than half of the passengers had already eaten while those sitting in the back were still waiting for their food. Its not cabin crew's inefficiency but rather a policy problem that needs to be addressed."
Pros: "I flew from Orlando DL to Dubai ,and from Dubai to cape town and both flight I was selected to seat on the middle seat,f that happens on my return flights to Orlando fl ,I will never fly emirates again"
Pros: "Crew"

Pros: "The flight crew we're fine and helpful if you needed something."
Cons: "The TV for my seat would cut out when the person in front of me reclined. The charging plug also didn't work."
Cons: "Food was not tasty or interesting."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and crew was dismissive with questions and concerns about connecting flights"
Pros: "Being able to sleep comfortably Great staff Food good rather than great but not easy on flight. Well chosen good wines. Chauffeur service to & from airport Ease of checkin"
Cons: "In this flight the flight attendant thought she was doing us a favour,although seated in 26F,preference of food was finished,there was no Pepsi,and felt I was treated badly because of my color and dress mode."
Pros: "Comfortable. Good food."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess."
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."
Cons: "I had given preference of Asian vegetarian food on line but was not served the same"
Pros: "Overall ok, food n entertainment was good"
Cons: "You cannot request seat preference, did not help!!"
Cons: "For three hours since takeoff we were not served any food or drinks. I was dehydrated and my sugar level had gone low. When they finally served us, they said they did not have a vegetarian meal inspite of my having ordered a hindu vegetarian meal. on creating a ruckus they managed to arrange a vegetarian meal"

Pros: "The Captain spoke to us a few times and the crew were absolutely amazing. Best flight Ive ever been on."
Cons: "Delhi to dbx was uncomfortable & they have changed our seat without any warning"
Pros: "My ankle was fractured and the crew (both at the desk and in the plane were very supportive. My experience was better in India (as Delhi airport) than in Dubai and Boston."
Pros: "Flight still arrived reasonably on time despite being delayed. Service is excellent!"

Great job

Delhi to Doha is excellent..

Checkin was greuling slow and an excruciating experience at the Indira Gandhi international airport. There were only 4 windows open to check in 300 passengers. It took me 50 mins to get to the window. I was there 3+ hours before departure time upon arrival from my domestic flight that arrived on Terminal 2. Security took another hour and no one from the flight ground staff came looking for me to expedite my security unlike the KLM staff. KLM staff was looking for their passengers going to Frankfurt in the security and immigration area for a good half hour. Also, I tried multiple times the day of my flight to WEB CHECKIN. the Qatar website and APP didn't let me do that either. I nearly missed my flight and was the last one to board!!!! I hope the airlines adapts to handle larger volume of passengers given the type of Airport rules and regulations. For example, IGA at New Delhi has an additional Immigration step before security that added an additional 45 min to my time to board the plane. Thank you and I hope a real human actually reads this survey response and it doesn't end up being processed by a computer bot that lacks human compassion and emotional IQ.

Pros: "The leg room in economy class was average. Not too cramped. There were good selection of entertainment options to watch/listen."

Cons: "Boarding process could be better. They can board the end rows first and go back to the first rows. This will help with better flow with passengers not blocking the pathways."
Cons: "Flight delays were unimaginable"

Pros: "Good food and crew"
Cons: "Free WiFi"
Pros: "The problem was with the booking, cancelled flights- under stable- but nobody willing to make it right. Flights still screwed up"

Pros: "I’m so grateful for all the movies"

Pros: "Good crew unlike previous experience few months ago."
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "On board crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Muslim meal does not mean all Muslims eat curry. It’s rediculous that we cant have a decent English breakfast instead you get curry or some form of curry for breakfast, lunch and supper. Your so called Muslim meals are not suitable for kids!! There is no such thing as a Muslim meal either. It’s simply called Halal otherwise then everyone else’s meals should be called Christian or Jewish meals etc. Also I requested help with transfer to my last flight which was horrendous because I’m one adult with 4 kids ages 1 to 11 and my eldest has sever learning disability. I nearly missed my flight because our flight landed late and I was struggling to keep my kids safe and together while running for the next flight. Somone should have been there to help with transfer."
Pros: "Crew members were friendly."
Cons: "Bathrooms need freshners, many passenger, infants , kids use it. It smell not unclean ."
Pros: "All the full service airlines are pretty good in the air. But what sets apart Lufthansa is it's ground staff. On the previous occasion I had left behind my waist bag on the seat containing passports, cash and cards. Their lost and found desk retrieved it quickly, absolutely intact. On the last occasion, my mother in law, who is over 85 was taken care of very well at not only Delhi but especially at the Frankfurt airport. I must truly acknowledge young lady Jessica's efforts, in ensuring that everything was handled very caringly by her personally, for an old lady at the Frankfurt airport."

Pros: "Generally like Lufthansa service - have been flying the airline for 15 years+ Pilots are always excellent"
Cons: "Every flight (to and from India) seems to have the chicken option run out. Why not order accordingly? Had a bad seating experience. LH.com showed that I had completed the boarding process. But when I went to the counter, my seat was changed without my consent (to a worse seat), and I was told that the online process wasn't complete!! Then the website should say accordingly. It's really annoying when this happens. I think the ground crew in New Delhi duped me. At one point, my call button for my meal was ignored for ~30 minutes on the plane. And then I was told there was no more chicken, and handed a veggie wrap. One wonders whether I could have gotten chicken 30 minutes ago!"
Cons: "They made me sit next to a special needs person and did not warn me. I didn’t signup to keep helping the elderly."
Cons: "Two flights delayed then no bags when we got to Chicago- disappointing and annoying. Great to arrive with no coats in winter!"
Pros: "Firstly, the food was great!"
Pros: "Great service, on time departures and arrivals, lie flat seats in business class. The planes were relatively new. Waiting lounges at Delhi and Frankfurt are well stocked with food."
Cons: "Almost nothing"
Pros: "Staff and flight were great. We were surrounded by kind of rude flyers. They complained when my husband moved the seat back. And they were just standing in the aisle most of the time. Person in front of me stretched her arms over the seat so her hands were dangling in front of me and fingers in my screen. I know we were in coach, but maybe another inch of separation would be nice for such long flights."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "Aircraft"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "I was upgraded after all the pressure from thehurrricane this was the icing on the cake"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Entertainment system wasn't working. 11 hour flight. Boring. No seat change available. No reading light, as light controlled by entertainment system. Seats in front of toilet cluster lit up every time door was opened. Crew were slow to react. Wasn't a priority. Ruined the excellent first leg of had from Philadelphia to Frankfurt. Do they run inferior planes to South Africa compared to USA?"
Pros: "Movie choices"
Cons: "Crew was very very rude , special meals were not provided in spite of being confirmed many weeks before"
Cons: "bad business class experience, requested assistance 2 but only one came that alsoafter so much hassel will never travel or recommend"

Cons: "Flight was an hour and a half late!"
Pros: "The airlines gives the best flights possible."
Pros: "Ground Staff helpful. Cockpit pilots communicated effectively. Cabin staff was courteous."
Cons: "The wait prior to takeoff. Flight departed late. The gate counters at IGIA, New Delhi were allowing some passengers to pre-board early even though the passenger was not senior citizen or handicapped, or family with children. Food from New Delhi to Frankfurt was less than optimal in taste."
Pros: "Great services and very good food."
Pros: "Food snacks were awful."
Pros: "Very polite and helpful staff"
Cons: "Food could be better"
Pros: "I appreciated the advance boarding for families traveling with younger children. Plenty of time to settle in with the kiddos."
Cons: "This airline has little respect for its customers. In the economy/coach cabin, they squeeze the seat distances to such an extent that, when the person in front of you leans their chair back, you cannot get out of your seat at an upright angle. You have to significantly bend your body. To not loose your balance, you have to grab on to the seat in front of you and that disturbs the other passenger. If they're sleeping, they can be woken up by that. Lufthansa does not care much for its passengers. Nor do many other companies, for that matter, but I think Lufthansa is taking things further than most airlines. It is a disgrace. Their brand is not what it once was."
Cons: "Everything was good"
Cons: "wheel chair crew ignored us during boarding. my mother had to walk to the gate which was very difficult"
Pros: "On time."

Cons: "The selection was rather dated as I travel very frequently I noticed it. Otherwise it would probably be fine for most"
Cons: "The plane was old but the flight was inexpensive"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive. The pilot landed the plane smoothly. Although had a delayed departure from KUL, we arrived in Sydney earlier than expected."
Pros: "Boarding was easy even though it started late, it was organized. Once I got on the plane I wasn't waiting a long time to get to my seat because they seated the people sitting in the back of the plane first. There is a huge selection of movies, tv shows, and music."
Cons: "They have 2 food options and they're just ok. There wasn't very many drink options either."
Cons: "I paid more than 1500 ringgit for the bags, although the booking of the trip was comprehensive. Unfortunately the site disappointed me"
Pros: "The Malaysia Airlines crew hospitality is world wide known and I experienced it myself during this flight"
Cons: "I sit in 2K of A350-900. Though it is known as a throne seat, there is an error on the installation of this seat. The foot rest that comes up and supposedly joined with the ottoman to make up the flat bed is too long so this seat never can actually go to full 180 degree mode."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Bigger aircraft"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the in-flight entertainment was fine."
Cons: "The crew shouldn’t assume that an Asian person is Vietnamese just because they boarded from Vietnam. The vegetarian door was awful."
Cons: "lost my luggage. after they found it, they took a week to deliver. no response to my claim for compensation"
Pros: "Everimg went smoothly, from check in to boarding and flight. The ground and flight crew were helpful."
Cons: "Nothing for this trip"
Pros: "Having 2 seats to ourselves"
Cons: "Crew hurried;seats cramped;boarding a pin-had to take watches off;food indifferent;sat on Sydney tarmac nearly 1/2 hr"
Pros: "Excellent crew. Good food. Comfortable seats even in coach."
Pros: "Everything. Just a simple, very short haul flight: nothing too complicated."
Cons: "There was nothing to fault."
Cons: "Whilst the main meal was ok, as far as breakfast on the LHR to KUL sector was concerned, by the time I was served my preference was no longer available. The crew member who served me made no attempt to see if another colleague had my preference available."
Pros: "Crew on board did their best."
Cons: "Because of an accident at Manila, all flights were delayed. This can happen, but the information provided by ground staff was far below standard. I assume they have procedures in place to inform passengers, and to make any estimations and guidance on what to do next. Absolutely no courtesy for passengers with connecting flights with different airliners. Usually, MH is a professional organisation, but this was an all time low in their service. Sorry."
Pros: "Friendly check in staff, thingking with the customer for aeat options."
Cons: "A very long queue, while only 2 counters were open."
Pros: "None that I like!"
Cons: "Flight delayed coming in therefore late departure of over an hour! My outgoing flight was also delayed that I missed my connection at Kuala Lumpur and was put on next flight 4 hours later arriving into Singapore around midnight!"
Pros: "food was good and overall good economy class flight"
Cons: "distance between rows seems shorter than other airlines such as Emirates"
Cons: "Tight seating made it less comfortable than normal, and mechanical issues caused some delays."
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: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Forced to check a carry-on used all over the world for years. Then they lose it"
Pros: "Excellent,"
Cons: "Initial flight was one hour late....almost missed my connecting flight, bags didn't make it to my destination. Not much help or info given about the late flight and how to connect to the next flight. First plane was old and beat-up."
Pros: "The early arrival, and the service"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Crew were awesome. Could not do enough for you. Very personable too!"
Cons: "Security at Adelaide very slow and under resourced."
Pros: "The plane was nice and new. Very smooth flight."
Cons: "Toilets could have been cleaned more frequently."
Pros: "This was a comfortable flight with nice staff and great food and entertainment choices"
Cons: "No 12 1/2 hour flight can be ideal but this was good deal."
Pros: "Good entertainment system."
Cons: "Food was only one choice - fish (not tasty)."
Cons: "No alcohol"
Pros: "Clean plane. Nice staff"
Cons: "Delay"
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."
Pros: "There was nothing positive about the experience on this flight. With exit row seats had to stow luggage back in overhead holds which meant having to go back on landing, retrieve bag & for get way back to seat. Not Airlines fault but no gantry available on arrival. Up and down runway until available (20min) before we could exit."
Cons: "Fact that once again confirmed seating was changed from original booking. Extremely frustrating. Slight delay on take off. Had exit row seats."
Pros: "The crews are friendly."
Cons: "Foods was not good for my standard. Below average."
Pros: "On time flights, comfortable seats and good onboard service"
Cons: "Check in counter personnel were very slow. They did not know proper immigration rules. They made me wait for 30 minutes while they verified with immigration on something I had already told them. I had to rush through immigration and security to ensure I made the flight on time. Added stress as a customer."
Pros: "I liked the crew, very polite and helpful."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that I could not check in on-line. This made that I missed half a night of sleep in Darwin because I had to check in at 1AM, flying at 4.10AM."
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Service in the plane"
Cons: "Service at the airport."
Pros: "my family and I flew one way Singapore to London (15 hours 1 hour stopover in KL) for $1600 (all 4) Singapore Airlines or BA were $1800 per person. they are nicer airlines but not $5600 better. Airbus A380 was a bit tired but service was good. pretty painless trip all in all"
Pros: "Crew was good in flight."
Cons: "The flight was excessively delayed. What was supposed to be a flight leaving at 2:25 AM left only at 4:15 AM or so. This is AFTER my original flight which I had booked for 1 AM was changed to 2:25 AM."
Pros: "The plane was decent. The offering on the IFE was a good mix. Food was ok"
Cons: "The IFE froze. I alerted the crew but it took them nearly 1.5 hours to do a reset of the system. I barely managed to watch a movie and only managed that due to the fact that I had my own earphones. They collect their headsets way too early."
Pros: "Nothing in particular."
Cons: "Crew were not responsive, lacked initiative and had an upsetting attitude when serving. Food was stale, toilets had pee on the floor: Stewardess didn't bother to clean up, she just sprayed an air freshener instead."
Pros: "Direct Flight"
Cons: "Food was absolutely disgusting. The mash potato and chicken was completely melt into liquid. The air con continually leaking throughout the journey."
Cons: "MH 0178 to KL was late and I arrived to KL at 9.30am. My transit flight already gone and the airport crew directed me another gate and gave me a new ticket for MH 0717 at 10.40 am."
Cons: "Flight purchase did not go through and found out too late to try and rebook it again. Tried calling booking company to sort it out and was on hold for 40 minutes which caused me to miss my flight."
Cons: "There could be more leg room available and wifi on the plane"
