55 min transit, not sure how they planned to make it work

55 min transit, not sure how they planned to make it work

Pros: "Smooth boarding"
Cons: "If they could serve a light snack would be good"
Pros: "Crew was super nice and the food was good (for plane food)! Really appreciated that they had snacks and chocolate on hand for hungry passengers throughout the flight. A 17 hour plane ride is never the best, but Singapore Air made it as pleasant as possible. Also, we booked on Kayak and was routed through a third party vendor JustFly, which I was a little worried about - but our booking went off without a hitch."
Pros: "I loved that the airline offered several meals, snack options and drinks. The attendants were amazing and would highly recommend Singapore airlines to anyone flying internationally"
Cons: "The limited arm room/personal space. Not much leg room in economy for a 10 hour flight. Would be nice if airlines would decrease the number of seats and give a little more room so people aren’t hitting each other in the head with their arms"
Cons: "For better leg room in business class go for the bulkhead seats"
Cons: "Great Airline. Great staff and service. Good food and drink."
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"
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: "smooth boarding process excellent enterntainment offered food is also quite good"
Cons: "seats seem to get smaller, less comfortable then I am used to with Singapore Airlines"

Emirates is usually on time, but not this trip. Also, during the flight the attendants disappear unless called upon. Very strange. I have watched the quality of Emirates service diminish over the last five years.

Some how there was a miscommunication between JetBlue and kayak because my flight was canceled with JetBlue through kayak. I would not have know my flight was canceled unless I had called to verify exactly when my flight was. There was poor communication between kayak and JetBlue and I will never book with neither company every again.

Pros: "The crew were very helpful and the food was good."
Cons: "There was no soap in the toilets on the stretch from Sydney to Dubai. The film choice also seemed poor."
Pros: "Good food. Professional crew. and overall good experience for a 15.5 hour flight."
Cons: "Again, If you allow people to choose tickets online and they pick the front row, at least don't put them in the back row. That is the opposite of what they requested. After a.long flight and the limited recline, I am very sore in my back. Probably the most uncomfortable flight to date in my travels."
Cons: "It was cold and the blankets got collected 45 minutes before arriving. Well, we had to wait 30 more minutes to get to a gate and I was freezing!"
Pros: "The Cabin Crew is pleasant when you are boarding the plane"
Cons: "If you sit towards the back of the plane, you risk not being served at all due to the short flight. If you are served, you get 10 minutes to eat before they have to pick up the trays."
Pros: "As usual Emirates deliver a very good prduct to be relied upon where ever and whenever you travel."
Cons: "The lunch was not very hot."
Cons: "Everything was great It’ was a long flight and the seats are not comfortable I wish the first class tickets were more reasonably priced for a normal person that wants to be more comfortable in a long flight. But everything else was perfect!! Thank you."
Pros: "The crew was awesome, seating is never comfortable for a long flight."
Cons: "I do not recall any plane departing the dock on time. All Airlines need to work on boarding quicker and leaving on time."
Pros: "Overall, wonderful! Appreciate that they started boarding early and that we left right on time, if not a little earlier. Was very comfortable and excellent flight. Thank you so much! Very pleasant experience."

Asian Veng meal have Non Veg items which is not ok. Pure veg meals option are too less and they have inclusion of Vedgan and Lactos etc... which is taste less

Terrible airlines - suffered entire flight due to food poisoning from stale food

Ordinary Indian food... Not great. Limited movie and TV selection

Pros: "Crew friendly it's my son favorite"
Cons: "Seat selection and little needs comfortable for young kids with mothers"
Pros: "Crew is amazing and very courteous. The seats were very comfy and food was awesome. Thanks."
Pros: "Nothing to like on that flight."
Cons: "Very poor customer service, Qatar Airways should be ashamed of providing worst than third world kind service in the Doha - Dhaka route."
Pros: "Food choice was good & amazing crew ."
Cons: "Plug for charging phone was not there that cause problem for me as my battery of phone was dead. Shocked to know that."
Pros: "Seat where comfortable and thank needed more leg space"
Cons: "Good was poor bcz going and back was same menu of choice of food."
Pros: "Stewards and Stewardess were very prompt and always had a smile!"
Pros: "The seats have great leg room and recline nicely"
Cons: "7kg and only one carry one!?? Budget airlines do better!! Try being a professional with a laptop and a few travel essentials and you won’t get far on Qatar. How crazy. Even if you have diamond one world status (the highest) unless u fly business class there is no chance in getting more onboard for your carryon. Works best airline my a**!"

We requested special assistance and Cathay Pacific provided it in Sydney, but we were completely forgotten about in Hong Kong - when we really needed the help to catch our connecting flight. Really disappointing service.

Pros: "A great flight with friendly staff, comfy seats, good food, and great inflight entertainment."
Cons: "The international transfer process at Manila airport was the worst I’ve ever seen. They had about 20 people standing at a desk for about 90 minutes with no explanation as to what was going on. In that time, nobody was released to go to their gate, but they wouldn’t explain what was happening. There were about 10 airport staff standing there, mostly doing nothing. The process was inefficient, to say the least. There was no place to sit, no toilets, no order to any of it. In most international airports, after you deplane, you just walk to your next gate. There seemed to be no logical reason for that awful experience. It would have been much faster to go through customs and then go through security, walking directly to the gate."
Cons: "Better attitude of head attendant. Need to improve food. Not attentive."
Cons: "short hall business class not comfortable - flight delayed as usual"
Pros: "We had a traumatic and abysmal experience for the trip. The flights were delayed, cancelled, wrongly rearranged and we had to run through the airports with no sleep, no food and no clear flight confirmations with minimal to no help from the Cathay Pacific staff."
Cons: "Helpful ground staff with information about next flight arrangements and better telephone helpline staff."
Pros: "Handing our menus in economy class was a nice touch. Service on board was very attentive."
Pros: "comfortable seats with good leg room"
Cons: "Cabin crew did not offer much service. No coffee, tea or water offered."
Cons: "Original itinerary was not followed. Flight from manila to hongkong was late. We arrived hongkong and was informed that our flight has been rebooked even though we can see that the plane was still there and staffs are still at the gate. We were transferred to a layover flight from HongKong to Aussie then Aussie to Auckland instead of going straight. Seats was set far apart with no competitions at all. Sorry is not enough for this big hassle."
Cons: "Gate change from 34 to 4 in hgk airport was too far."
Cons: "They don’t offer enough food on a long flight"

Same but worse than international. The inter African flights are worse.

The seats were quite uncomfortable despite having good legroom. The 350s are quite nice but the problem is on the old 777 aircraft. Special meal requests are not catered for as they should. They never had any ice for drinks.

Cons: "First of all, my flight had no option to plug my cellphone, there was no TV screen and no WiFi.. they served some loaf of bread cut in half with some spices inside and called it dinner! But the most disappointing thing is the fact is that they LOST BOTH OF MY LUGGAGE BAGS, and the most they could offer me is $50 compensation (my belongings worth thousands of dollars) And even this I would have to claim from my “home country” which is completely unreasonable as my home country isn’t the one lost my luggage, the airlines had! Beyond shocked, disappointed and aggravated, this was my first time flying this airlines and I promise you it’s the last. Won’t recommend to anyone."
Pros: "The crew were fantastic! The one meal from Athens to Cairo was excellent, the other two meals weren’t too bad but not as good as the first one."
Cons: "The security in Cairo was really a joke."
Cons: "Could have a better seat like 30A on Boieng 387-8 Quantity of food should be improved Quality of food should be improved"
Cons: "Flight delays with no info from staff. Food poorly prepared. No orderly queues - there is aggression with no intervention from staff. There is no need for two security checks when making connections in Addis. Plane loos were all very stinky and dirty. I now remember why I had stopped using ET!"
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Cons: "They need to improve on thier inflight menu and the check-in and boarding experience"
Pros: "Yes.seat was just ok but not quiet comfortable"
Cons: "I think Ethiopian is reasonably good.I travelled to Seattle via delhi .from delhi to sea I travelled by Ana the reason was the fare of Ethiopian (Enugu to Seattle,round trip)was much higher and also you spend 37 hours before u reach your destination,it is too long.why can't u fly to usa direct ,then"
Cons: "Flight attendants where bothered to serve us beer, water or any other snack during he flight. I had to beg in both occasions to have my tray taken from my seat."
Cons: "The landing was terrible and quite dangerous. It was a lopsided and the plane was about to tip forward when we hit the ground. I was quite disturbed on arrival. I’m glad to say the we were lucky that webdid not have an unfortunate incident."
