Pros: "Staff are super kind."
Pros: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "The seats hurt my butt"

Pros: "The flight attendants were very polite and kind."
Cons: "The food was not to my taste. I did enjoy the ice cream though! Perhaps it was very Japanese (which I am not tremendously familiar with), but even the pasta with sauce which I had the impression was going to be more Italian style, seemed odd. I felt like it was supposed to be gourmet, but just came off strange. I was wishing for something more straightforward."
Pros: "The flight attendants treat passengers as valued guests. The check-in clerk gave me an exit row with extra leg room without me requesting it and without charge. Average time that you need to be at security ahead of your domestic flight = 15 minutes! As with everything in Japan, flight left on time."
Cons: "The connection time of 1.5 hours with my flight to Canada was a bit short. I had time to get through security at Narita, find the right gate, visit the facilities, and buy a bottle of water and that's all."
Cons: "Queued up with other Star Gold etc. customers (they have 2 queues, one for Diamond and one for other statuses). There's a sign on a pole. People queue up, then they swivel the pole round so I'm in the wrong queue now. Try to move, lose place in queue, they swivel it back the way it was... Good airline but boarding especially for domestic is disorganised with poor signage etc."
Pros: "I love the food and the girls was fantastic"
Pros: "Nice new plane"
Cons: "Delayed boarding"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "No food available only drinks"
Pros: "Cabin was clean and really comfortable seats. The crew were very friendly and helpful."

Pros: "I liked the plane! Beautiful and new, the Boeing 787 Dreamliner was a pleasure to ride in. Staff was as pleasant and helpful as they always are on ANA and despite the long delay due to an engine repair, the ANA staff conducted themselves incredibly professionally."
Cons: "It wasn't such a bad experience for me but the plane did have a mechanical failure and the part was not in stock in Cambodia so had to be flown in. That resulted in a 24 hour delay. The ANA staff were excellent and did take care of us well."
Pros: "A N A Very good, space between chairs is very good, crew very professional and friendly"
Pros: "From ticketing/check-in to flight crew personnel; they ensure you are taker care of."
Pros: "the crew is fine. The seat was OK standard."

Cons: "Entertainment and access to Wifi"
Pros: "The crew professional and friendly"
Cons: "The food was rather bland and did not live up to my expectations"
Pros: "Best airline I've ever been on"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very friendly, professional and helpful"
Cons: "Nothing comment."
Cons: "For business class SQ, the crew service was severely sub-par. Seat arrangement same as in bigger 777, so actual space is much shorter and therefore uncomfortable for sleeping and lounging."
Pros: "Crew were really lovely and friendly. A bit of spacee on the plane which always helps"
Cons: "Nothing Better than average flight"
Pros: "Seats were good"
Cons: "Food could have been better"
Cons: "Great Airline. Great staff and service. Good food and drink."
Pros: "This was the most fabulous crew I have ever flown with on ANY flight in so many years of my travels! It was un-imaginable as to what they did, they left no stone unturned to make sure we were comfortable, fed us with awesome food every now and then. Were looked after like babies! Thank you SQ!"
Cons: "The A380 was probably SQ's oldest one, which that was a newer plane."
Cons: "Transit time is way too tight. You need at least 2 hrs in between to account for landing and transfer time between terminals"
Pros: "Easy red eye flight, just slept the whole way"
Cons: "Singapore airline is always awesome. Crew professional and very caring"
Pros: "Boarding was great. Staff was cordial. Excellent flight."
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."
Pros: "Again friendly and efficient staff and a smooth flight. Best features of Singapore Airlines."
Cons: "The business class seats were smaller than I thought and not so comfortable as the 777. The seats are hard and ungiving and when you sleep on them you really feel it. Plus the flatbed lay out meant you were basically lying in a question mark position, not so goof for tall people like my husband. The food was good but uninteresting and I think for an overnight flight there should be more smaller,lighter, non spicy options offered rather that full dinners."
Pros: "Singapore has always been my preferred airline because they give excellent service, excellent food and the crew are very polite. aircraft new and comfortable, I finally had a flatbed"
Cons: "the call button did not work the tray table was almost impossible to pull in and out (BC)"
Pros: "Very good service"
Cons: "Very poor entertainment. Upgrade options at the transfer desk not very clear and the staff present there not courteous"
Pros: "The staff were so friendly and helpful."
Pros: "friendly and attentive crew. connecting flight was a breeze. well worth the price."
Pros: "easy check in process and the crew was awesome. friendly and attentive to all passengers. great food as well."

Cons: "Priority boarding not available in India, food and food choices and lackluster service"
Cons: "Stewardesses were a bit rude"
Pros: "Christmas decorations, service, attitude of staff"
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: "AMAZING IN EVERY WAY. PLANES ARE OUTSTANDING SERVICE IS OUTSTANDING INFLIGHT STAFF ARE EXTREMELY POLITE AND FRIENDLY AND ELEGANT!:)) AIRPORT IS SUPERB THIS IS MY FAVORITE AIRLINE!"
Cons: "THE WEBSITE LISTS PRICES IN SINGAPORE DOLLARS AND IT IS ONLY IN THE FINAL STAGES OF A BOOKING IS ONE TOLD WHAT THE US $ PRICE IS. THIS NEEDS TO CHANGE. WHEN YOU CALL SINGAPORE AIRLINES THERE ARE VERY LONG WAIT TIMES."

Pros: "Amazing service and comfortable lay flat bed"
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Personal Touch!"
Cons: "No such!"
Pros: "Awesome comfort, infotainment, service and food. Was amazed at the value for an economy flight - much better than BA & United in every way."
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: "The staff are so friendly and helpful. Highly recommend travelling with the airline. The A380 is a great way to travel with more space in economy. I booked seats on the upper deck where there is a smaller economy cabin. Makes you feel a bit more civilised up the top!"
Cons: "Economy class isn't great for a long haul flight but the staff make it much more bearable."
Pros: "Neat & clean flight.good cabin crew members.good service."
Cons: "Food served was not so good. Toilets are very small compared to other flights..speacially SFA - Singapore flight."
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: "Good seats, personal TV with movies and good shows. They gave us socks, blamkets, pillows headphones, etc."
Cons: "The crew was chronically rude to me. They would skip me when handing out beverages to everyone. I was lied to and passed down the beaurocracy over issues with my Stopover Holiday packages. They lost my bags. In Hong kong, I was told the designated smoking area in the terminal was close and the steward encouraged me to go...I almost missed the flight even though I didn't even make it to where she directed me. It was not close, she was a liar. They lost my bags. They kept calling me sir despite my corrections and obvious female anatomy. They had no remorse or apologies for their errors"
Pros: "Everything is suport wonderful"
Cons: "Price. it's better"
Pros: "Aircraft was OK."
Cons: "Cabin crew service can definitely be better. Should offer more snacks for long flights."
Cons: "old plane, boarding ramp smelled musty, food not nice, entertainment system was old not touch screen, male crew not patient with passengers, drinks stingy(split a can of soda with other passengers, and gave you a 1/4 cup). When asked for more OJ with breakfast was told they would come back later(mouth was very dry due to the air). Not impressed as we paid good money for the ticket with the poor service"
Pros: "Consistently good food."
Cons: "Entertainment system sometimes froze, didn't remember where I was in the movie."
Cons: "Same food options as previous flight Not as many movie options as the longer flight"
Cons: "No room, seats too tight. So close, my neighbor spills over. Toilets too small."
Cons: "Food not so good"
Pros: "Great entertainment, good service, clean plane."
Cons: "The lasagna was pretty dry and meh."
Pros: "Check in and boarding were flawless. The flight left about one hour late. The seats in coach are getting smaller and smaller. I got an aisle seat to have a little extra room (I'm 6'1") only to get hit big time by the food cart (they did apologize). The food was plentiful, but mediocre at best. The flight attendants were working hard, but we're abrupt and tired. Overall, I have three stars, when in the past, flying SA was always a five star experience. It got me back home though. :)"
Pros: "Singapore Air is keeping up their standard which is a tough job. I give credit to them while doing so. They do have a high bar to keep. Singapore Air still pampers its travellers by providing hot towels for refreshment. Something that I don't enjoy while flying on other airlines. Keep up the good job."
Cons: "I saw a scotch tape taping over the arm of the seat! This is rather amusing and seems unacceptable. This is Singapore Air that we are talking about. Are we saying that Singapore Air do not have any proper repair kit to fix it without using scotch tape?? Being one of the world's 5-star airline, I think Singapore Airline can do better than that. :)"
"Food was very bad."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "It was okay"
Pros: "Just a bad airline all together. They try to rip you off during transit by saying your luggage is over the weight limit and that you must pay for each additional kilograms."
Pros: "Yes comfortable flight"
Cons: "Toilets to be checked for cleanliness more frequently."
Pros: "All services are simply best."
Cons: "If you can add more Indian food, that will be better."
Pros: "The crew was okay And the seats good it’s little wide In general was okay"
Cons: "The food not so good I like service on the plane was good"
Pros: "They were very supportive. Thanks."
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"
Pros: "Excellent service"
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."
Pros: "Personalized service"
Cons: "Sound kept going of on movie"
Pros: "Nice flight sttendents"

Cons: "They ran out of the selection for breakfast. The flight also departed late."
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: "Nice comfortable seat in business class on A380"
Cons: "Crew was awful. We paid a lot of money for Airport upgrade to business class because we were told economy was oversold. We were promised full business class service. On board aircraft we were not offered business class meal options as we were told they didn’t know how many people had upgraded. It was absolutely embarrassing when crew skipped us when drink and meal service were being ordered. Crew was obnoxious and dismissive about situation. Absolutely atrocious."
Cons: "Food did not meet the usually high standard associated with Emirates . The menu was bland and the main course was served cold."
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: "Level of entertainment"
Cons: "My companion ‘s screws wasn’t working. The stewardess was advised twice but nothing was done"
Pros: "Almost everything!"
Cons: "Couldn’t find anything to really complain about other then had to go and ask one of the stewards to get the drink I asked for that hadn’t come."
Cons: "Everything is unlikely You got treated by your sc you got treated by your skin"
Cons: "Departure time ruins the whole night"
Pros: "I flew round trip on their flagship Airbus 380 from Toronto to Dubai, about 13-14 hours. Crew was great, plenty of food and drinks, about 3x meals, lost track of how many drink runs, maybe 5x. It was almost too much food & drink! The in-flight entertainment was great, touch screen was fantastic, USB port, even power outlet, on back of seat, plenty of entertainment choices from movies, to video games, to trivia, I even got a kick out of all the camera's mounted on the outside of the plane with all the flight tracking details available on screen, plenty of bathrooms. Its such a big plane it didn't even feel like you are flying. I'm 6'4" so I always choose an aisle seat so i can at least stretch one leg out, the crew was even mindful not to bump my elbow or even my leg when it was extended out into the aisle while i was asleep...which was more than accommodating to something I shouldn't have been doing! Overall Excellent, I wish every airline was like Emirates. They're bringing back the old school service and class airlines used to be like. I know people don't dress up while they air travel anymore, but I'll be dressing up the next time I fly Emirates! ;)"
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind."
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: "Airport staff were not very descriptive or helpful with directions. Talked to me like I was dumb...."
Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "Stawardess took too long to collect trays after we had eaten.at least two hours."
Pros: "The crew were excellent, very helpful and friendly. The most friendly crew I have flown with. Qantas could learn something from Emirates."
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: "The new plane is nice, reasonably comfortable in economy with clean bathrooms."
Cons: "Frankly can't remember much about this leg of the trip because the next 14 hour leg was so overwhelmingly bad thanks to the highly disruptive fellow passengers and the lack of control from the flight crew."
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: "Liked the entertainment."
Cons: "Some of the crew members were rough. Bashing the passengers and missing the courteous approach. No snacks available in the kitchen between meals on the long 14 hours flight segment."
Pros: "Flight was delayed for 24 hours and when it got to Dubai we were told the flight is full to Beirut and will have to wait till the next day. Very bad experience!!'"
Pros: "Very professional and very good in customer care"
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: "Every thing , service , taking off and landing ."
Cons: "Nothing , every thing was perfect"
Pros: "It was a nice flight"
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."
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 crew positive attitude"
Cons: "We understand the COVID-19 crisis but a drink on board other than water will not have bid cost impact on Air Canada, for instance juice or cola,... Also, access on internet on board is now payable -$25 for the flight is exaggerated, it should be free knowing the limited number of passengers on board"
Cons: "Severe turbulence and many of the Egyptian passengers didn't understand the announcements and were getting up"
Pros: "Smooth and easy flight"
Cons: "Food and drinks served late"
Pros: "Lufthansa doesn’t let the passenger choose their seat; it instead assigns their seat for them!"
Cons: "Too many last minute gate changes for boarding are confusing which costs extra time for the passenger, especially for connecting flights."

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating"
Pros: "Everything Else"
Cons: "Too much cabin baggage."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and provided excellent service"
Cons: "The seat could have been a little bit more comfortable. Then again for a long trip, unless you are in business or first class, it's not going to be that comfortable."
Pros: "Nice crew members. Even though it was a short flight, they served a snack and drinks."
Cons: "No complaints. Good vegan food."
Pros: "The crew was helpful and nice."

Cons: "Didn’t like the breakfast at all"
Pros: "The only good part of this flight was that even after the two hours delay of my first flight I managed to catch the second flight since it was delayed too."
Cons: "Make sure you put all the liquids like (small perfumes, mouth wash and medicine bottles) in a plastic bag before you go in for your security check at Frankfurt airport. Frankfurt airport is confusing Flight crew was super rude and disgusted Food is bad"
Pros: "Great service, comfy plane, smooth ride."
Pros: "Nice big plane, good/frequent beverage service."
Cons: "Didn’t arrive on time. Breakfast was weird and flavorless."
Pros: "Very helpful crew, great service. Will fly again."
Cons: "Almost missed connecting flight had to run hard to make it. Airline did nothing to assure us that we will make it to next flight. Was very stressful, can do better."
Cons: "Water was spilled on me by flight attendant. Luggage was left in Frankfort. Did not have clothes or medications, or daily necessities. Must wait 1 1/2 days to get luggage"
Pros: "Friendly crew, smooth flight, always offering water."
Cons: "I was hungry in this flight. I felt the choice of food was small and have never been on a 10 hr+ flight and felt hungry. I'm glad I brought my own snacks with me."
Pros: "Agents in the airport helped us avoid long passport lines in order to board connecting flight by putting us forward to front of lines. Otherwise we would have missed connecting flight."

Cons: "Not enough room. Aisle seat was too narrow and short."
Cons: "The on board entertainment sucks you need to upgrade"
Pros: "Good service,always smiling flight attendants,"
Cons: "Small tight chairs."
Cons: "The cabin got a little hot during the night and made it hard to be comfortable. Also, the seats lean pretty far back so I had little room in front of me when the person sitting in front of me leaned their seat all the way back."
Cons: "Not a thing"
Cons: "Long strory short. Flight overbooked, made US pay to ytake the next flight and send us home to another airport. WORSE EXPERIENCE WITH LUFTHANSA EVER!!!!"
Pros: "Apart from the turbulence everything was perfect. Flight attendants were very hospitable. Love the aircraft design. Great movie choices for the kids. In addition to that we all reach our destination safely. That's all that matters."
Cons: "It was delayed by 9.5 hours!!!!!"
Pros: "Again the friendly crew."
Cons: "The snack at dinner. A simple sandwich would be better instead of the heated pizza and large sandwich they did give."
Pros: "the trip from osaka to frankfurt was excellente. the people of the crew woho serve us, were excellent. Thanks for karen kern and her colleague First time i drunk a nice wine."
Cons: "the trip from frankfurt to sao paulo wasn't so excellent. there was a difference. Unfortunatelly, lower."

Cons: "I did not like the bathroom downstairs."
Pros: "The 30 min delay was madeup and the flight landed on time. Service was Good!"
Cons: "it started 30 min late and my time to catch the connecting flight was reduced to 1 hour"
Pros: "Munich airport is convenient and boarding went smoothly"
Cons: "This was an SAA plane, not Lufthansa. I have only had excellent service on Lufthansa. This flight again did not have a functioning entertainment system. I asked for this to be addressed and the SAA crew ignored the request and in the morning looked surprised to find out that several of the TV monitors had not worked at anytime on the flight. Not impressed."
Pros: "I had some issues that prevented me from making my first flight, and Lufthansa figured it all out for me. They have my eternal gratitude. And then, the flight was comfortable and the attendants kind."

Pros: "The seats were much more comfortable then my last flight. The entertainment system was also updated from the 1980’s remote and cord ones on my flight from DC to Paris."
Cons: "There was no food between the two meals on an 8 hour flight. I had a flight attendant rudely tell me that there is nothing to offer until the next meal. No one reached out to me about the horrible flight and comments I made from the last flight."

Pros: "Crew was great but at the airport they had us weight our carry on and then made us check it for 90 euro."

Pros: "crew was great, seats were comfortable"
Cons: "departure board listed flight as being boarded and gate closed hour before flight leading to confusion and standing in queue for over an hour, part of food was frozen and inedible, paid for upgraded seat which turned out to be by bathroom smells were as bad as you can imagine"
Pros: "The flight departed on time and arrived early. The crew were all courteous and kind even to the man who was sitting next to me who seemed quite demanding."
Cons: "I am small but the seats seemed a bit too tight. The plane itself seemed a bit outdated."
Pros: "In flight entertainment was great"
Cons: "seats very uncomfortable, boarding was a mess in Paris, priority luggage was annoying and made us miss our connection flight (as well as numerous delays)"

Pros: "Most of the crew tired especially hard to keep everyone comfortable and safe. The food was absolutely amazing."
Cons: "Other members of the crew were snarky to passengers and dismissive of questions from passengers during the early stages of the delay. We were all trapped on board for about 4 or so hours without much communication from the crew or captain which made me very anxious. We arrived 5 hrs late and it put my whole trip in jeopardy. Based on this experience, I eont be inclined to use this airline again for future trip planning. This airline will need to work hard to earn my trust back because i felt physically and emotionally unsafe throughout the experience, many times."

Pros: "Quick and efficient not lying more to say or critique."

Cons: "There was no WiFi on the plane"
Pros: "We flew with our special needs child without requesting any particular accommodations except for gluten free meals. The gate staff and flight crew identified him and allowed us special bordering that facilitated the process. That act of kindness is a rare experience on our part. Thank you Air France staff!"
Cons: "Crew not only lacked sensibility to understand the purpose of an emotional support dog but kept harassing me about the dog being tied to my seat. At some point a flight attendant even tried to touch my dog, invading my personal space. When the dog rightfully acted defensive trying to protect me, the crew member started threatening me that he would have the dog sent to cargo, the last thing a person with an emotional support pet wants to hear. Extreme lack of professionalism."
Cons: "They were unfreindly and rude."
Cons: "Plane was canceled at the last minute with a transfer desk literally assaulted by 100s of people. Only 3 persons on the desk. No lane for sky priority. Queued for nearly two hours before some airport employee gave us instructions to travel by train without any other information or tickets etc. Had to buy my ticket. Couldn’t recuperate my suitcase. Had to wait for it the next day for three hours. Up to this hour I don’t know how I am going to be reimbursed (train and plane)."

Pros: "Nice Flight Attendants Good Food"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 1.5 hours"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The food was really poor. The chicken was as dry as it can be. The food taste was poor. I flow 3 weeks ago with KLM and the food was pretty good for flight food. In a French company I expect much more. The entertainment system on the airbus a380 was like an enchant IT system from the past. Very poor reaction time. Very messy and not people oriented at all. Especially after KLM's And Delta experience."
Pros: "Cabin Crew and food selections were top notch"
Cons: "Seat configuration as a first class ticket was awful. Same configuration as economy class but by leaving the middle seat empty constituted first class. I'm 6'-1" and missed the legroom...."
Pros: "Boarding sevece was very nice and helpful Thanks so much"
Pros: "Loved the lovely food and wine from Air France, they even serve fresh french bread with camembert, ice cream, champagne (in economy) and brandy with your coffee!"
Cons: "The cabin on the 777-200 was far too hot (about 25c) and with no individual air vent I found this unbearable on a 12 hour flight. And despite the flight taking place entirely during daylight hours and leaving at 10:30 am, inexplicably we were made to all pull our blinds down and the lights went off after a couple of hours - in the middle of the day and for about 8 hours! So although I had paid for a window seat there was nothing to see apart from the window shade. As it was the middle of the day I could not go to sleep, the person in front of me reclined fully so for me the flight was a hot, claustropobic, dark hell. An utterly miserable experience. I felt like I was going mad, trapped in my own little cell."
Pros: "After riding in premium economy for the 8 hour flight we had, this one wasn't the same. No tvs, way less leg room, we were able to have a window seat which was great for my sister since before we didn't have the window seat option. The snack was good also."
Cons: "After riding in premium economy for the 8 hour flight we had, this one wasn't the same. No tvs, way less leg room."
