Great airline

My diabetes meal was the same on my earlier flight from Hyderabad to Singapore. The breast of chicken was 3-4 oz piece. It was difficult to cut it on the smaller pieces in the tray. Prefer pre-portioned chicken breast cubes. No need to make it a chore. I could manage to handle, but be considerate to seniors who might have limited mobility etc.

Singapore airlines has resumed after Covid selling premium services but not opened lounges to cater for the demand you cannot get a seat in their lounges and social distancing is non existent. I wouldn't pay for services you don't get so be aware.

We enjoyed the flight very much. The flight staff was very helpful and friendly.

Pros: "SQ always has the best looking flight attendants"
Cons: "We missed the smile and quality service liked before. Food quality is just okay. Timeliness for departure/arrival was excellent."
Cons: "Having boarded at SYD, during the Canberra stop, we were all required to disembarked. It was a loaded flight so the process was slow"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. seats were comfortable. The seats will be super comfortable, if there are more leg space."
Cons: "Change the food menu, boring with the same menu"
Pros: "Friendly crew and spacious."
Cons: "Food could be better"
Pros: "Amazing crew."
Cons: "Food focused on Japan on both legs, LAX to NRT and NRT to SIN. Variety would have been nice."
Cons: "Cramped seats, no leg room, horrible food, stupid COLD snack!"
Pros: "The crew werr very helpful and patient and so many languages they knew. Impressive they need a raise"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable I slept 30 min at a time on my 14hr flight. The food is nice but a bit bland the first time its amazing but after more than 2 planes mix it up plz"
Pros: "Everything on time and smooth. Great service. Great pillows and. Plenti snacks anytime I want it. Very comfortable seats. Entertainment System fabulous."
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Basics are covered. TV screen is big but otherwise nothing special."
Cons: "It is so annoying they want you to pay an extra $20 to pre book any seat. If you need the extra $20 that much, charge me in the original fare! Don't nickel and dime me. At check in they couldn't even get my child seated beside me although a change was made last minute at the gate. Every other airline I've flown recently was better. Sri Lankan and Emirates FAR better service."
Pros: "We loved the service, quality of food, entertainment, and cleanliness of Singapore Airlines flight!"
Cons: "Economy is still tightly packed with limited leg room considering the distance traveled."
Pros: "all of SQ"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "more room in the seats - excellent hostesses who are so friendly and helpful - lovely food."
Pros: "Brand new aircraft, excellent service and food"
Cons: "J class seat, 12A window. Top of my seat curled around my sides, which blocked vision thru 1.5 of the 3 windows I had access to. The enclosure also protuded into my left bicep when I had my elbow resting on the arm rest. Table on my right hand side was too close to my body, and to high to reach a drink easily, I literally had to lift my whole right arm to pick up a glass."
Pros: "Scoot employees were really helpful, I missed my flight from Singapore to Kochi because by the time the passengers got off the flight and went through immigration in Singapore, the check in counter had closed, and there was no more flights available to Kochi until 2 days later. The employees made sure I boarded my flight and I came home to my sister’s wedding"
Cons: "Kayak doesn’t specify its two separate tickets for my destination to kochi from Honolulu, also they didn’t specify their would be a stop in Japan before the flight reached Singapore. The flights were delayed by a few minutes, which led to me stressing to make it on time to my flights, and I felt dehydrated and nauseous. Also the website doesn’t specify that we will have to purchase meals either before hand or on board, and that the airlines only took cash and no credit card. It was miserable, a whole 20+ hour flight with lots of stress of catching my flight, checking and the checking my baggage, and being hungry and thirsty because I didn’t carry enough cash on me."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, derive very ordinary staff unhelpful seat allocation system requires improving ! Extra cost from economy was not worth it !"
Pros: "Staff, food and emenities great for economy class"
Cons: "Inflight entertainment wasn't as extensive as in previous years."
Pros: "Great crew, good food (best I've had on an airplane), plenty of drinks, and a good entertainment system."
Cons: "Nothing bad to say about this flight. Great airline."
Pros: "Classy cabin staff"
Pros: "The service crew served us well. They are friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Too many Indian movies"
Pros: "friendly staff top Service top Inflight"
Cons: "new aircraft, 2 x usb charging ports, 50+ movies, very quiet aircraft."
Pros: "The crew of ladies and men where so very gracious and courtly, both to the passengers and each other. My wife and I both took note that the flight attendants were "First Class" with emphasis on class. Exceptionally well groomed, but also conveyed genuine concern and helpfulness and at the same time, real workers, energetic and perky. We are bragging to all our friends about the uplifting cultural demeanor of Singapore Airlines. They should all get a pay raise. I will always remember their wonderful service when thinking about our trip to Frankfurt, Germany. Robert"
Pros: "Non stop to HK"
Cons: "Staff wake you up very aggressively when meal time. Other airlines leave stickers. This is a long flight, be respectful. Will avoid for future."
Cons: "I purchased this ticket without realizing that the law stipulated 6-month validity remaining on one's US passport to enter singapore. The Singapore Airways website does not state this anywhere, and it was not until I arrived at the airport that I was informed that I wouldn't be able to check in, but nor could I refund or transfer the ticket. The booker should be obliged, when one enters the passport information upon purchasing the ticket, to make note if the passport expiration time is not valid for the flight. Spent $600+ on the flight, and the customer service person I spoke to from the airport was very abrasive and not interested in helping me figure out an alternative."
Pros: "Crew was super nice. Amazed at collection of Chinese movies and music. Great alcoholic beverage selection."
Cons: "Hope that there were more time to order and enjoy beverages."
Pros: "Just a generic flight. Had nice movies but nothing special."
Cons: "I felt very cramped and though it's nothing with the airline I had 2 crying babies right near me during the flight."
Pros: "Food, movies, support, were all wonderful."
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. And given ticket prices SQ is not attractive any more for me."
Pros: "Everything.."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "spicy chicken too spicy!"
Pros: "Attention to detail, good leg room, entertainment options and a brand new plane"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "The attendants were helpful, smiling and friendly. The entire time We flew with an 18 month old and they came looking for us before he flight to help us carry our stuff on board. 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!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Polite crew took good care of my needs"
Cons: "Food was really bad could do better . Movies were not as current but a good collection."
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."
Cons: "Flight was over too quickly."
Pros: "Everything is suport wonderful"
Cons: "Price. it's better"
Pros: "Excellent crew service and entertainment."
Pros: "Great food and plenty of movies. Friendly crew"
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: "What did I like??? Um, EVERYTHING! First off I got a great price under $850 round trip to NRT from LAX was a steal! They let you check two large suit cases plus a carry on and a personal item. That all FREE!!! I travel pretty light but it was great to know they don't Nickle and dime you for bags or anything else for that matter. Staff looks amazing and treats you first class even when your in economy. They are so polite and really genuinely want to give you a above and beyond experience. And they over achieve at it! They meals are great and very satisfying. The planes are big and roomy even in economy seats. On our return flight we had a brand new plane which had a sleek touch screen monitor and controller. There mad tons of media available (articles, language games, games, movies, tv shows and more) with USB ports to charge devices on each seat. Plus 10inch personal monitors. Earbuds were included free of charge, aswell as socks toothbrush and tooth paste. They have is two big meals on our direct flight (awesome that they have direct flights). Plus, they offered free snacks too and gave us a full can of soda vs. a small cup. They come through several times offering coffee, tea, water and snacks. All free of charge. This was my first time flying Singapore Airlines and I loved it!!! I wish Everyone was this amazing! Norwegian Airlines was the opposite as far as charging for everything! Had to pay each stop for any luggage ($100 per checked bag). No meals free or charge. They wanted money for everything! And yea a skimpy sandwich was $9.00 :(."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, but other than that, flight was great."
Pros: "The service was amazing. The flight attendants were all so friendly and eager to assist. The meals were very tasty and complimentary wine was such a treat. Blankets were nice and thick, pillows were comfy, and you even received a little bag with socks and toothbrush."
Cons: "Can't think of anything:)"
Pros: "I enjoyed the entertainment, food, boarding was easy, crew gave a warm welcome and was comfortable"
Cons: "I'm good with everything as there was really no down side"
Pros: "Thanks once again for a comfortable flight homs"
Pros: "uncomfortable compared to the other flights"
Cons: "The entertainment was poor"

I changed the flight

Qatar is undoubtedly the best airline in the world. Very impressed with their all around service and customer care.

The airport staff of Qatar airlines was UNFRIENDLY and UNHELPFUL. They all acted like we were bothering them. They gave no help in moving from one station to another. In general they gave an extremely bad first impression of Qatar airlines!!

Pros: "I would have appreciated that with ALL required paperwork, my stay at check in point would have lasted a little less than two hours I spent standing and waiting for a feedback."
Cons: "Updating clients and offering a seat if it’s a long wait could have improved the situation. It is on reception that the business gets its impression. Thanks."
Pros: "Everything great!"
Cons: "~"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth."
Cons: "The crew were not attentive. I needed milk for my child but they never came back. Their food was HORRIBLE and only two choices and both spicy and tasted disgusting. Honestly the worst flight for me with Qatar airways"
Pros: "Crew was great. They made up for mistakes in a positive and amenable way."
Cons: "Flight was late. There was no communication about it. The flight from Joburg to Doha was late, therefore I missed my connection. The delay was not officially communicated to any of the passengers — no announcements made, no representatives to talk to at the gate — until well past the time that we should have been in the air. It was distressing."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and professional"
Cons: "Food wasn't great"
Pros: "Crew is amazing"
Cons: "The Entertainment screen wasn’t working"
Pros: "Great crew and food. Nice economy class."
Pros: "Nice crew, 1 hr free WiFi"
Cons: "Significant delay on jetway, temps uncomfortable,"
Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "I found my seat a bit uncomfortable for this leg of the jurney"
Pros: "The service of the cabin was great!"
Cons: "The food was not of the quality I would have expected from the expectation created by the airlines marketing. We boarded close to a full hour later than scheduled and the boarding process was very slow."
Cons: "Did not make this flight."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Excellent"
Pros: "decent leg room. the staff was accommodating"
Cons: "the brea was har. some of the food was overheated thus making it hard to eat"
Pros: "Fantastic service, very friendly staff who are always happy to help"
Cons: "Should have internet free of charge in flight"
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."
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: "The change of my flight schedule for the entire journey was done without giving me any options (departure flights from origin and return). It would have caused me inconvenience if the change of time does not allow me to adjust my plans."
Pros: "Crew and food"
Cons: "It was a pretty old flight and had no tv in front! Huge disappointment. Probably they thought ppl flying from Doha to Colombo were ok with a low quality flight with no entertainment."
Pros: "Great flight. Everything was good. The only very small issue is hey offer WiFi but even if you pay the allocation of data make you feel like you living in the 1990. 10 meg free and 300 meg for a whole flight is a complete joke, especially for USD 30. They could manage protocols but give a reasonable service."
Cons: "WiFi"
Pros: "Boarding and crew were excellent."
Cons: "Lack of information about the flight delay of 4hr 45 min apart from expected take off time."
Pros: "Qatar is a reliable airline."
Cons: "No matter how many times I have traveled with Qatar (5 international flights in the last year); I still do not receive any benefits such a priority boarding or upgrades."
Pros: "The service from check-in till landing was on the ball and superb. They were friendly and eager to assist with everything. They have the latest movies and shows to watch on their in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "great crew and food."
Cons: "being charged excess baggage when one suitcase weigh under weight. Having to wait at the terminal for a hour and a half because of bad weather -- not the pilot's fault"
Pros: "The plane from Johannesburg to Doha was Fine but not as wonderful and comfortable As flight from Doha to Chicago"
Cons: "They lost my bag and that’s disappointing considering I have my bank account details in that bag. Very disappointed by this"
Pros: "I was actually impressed with the entertainment selection :)"
Cons: "The economy seats are just unfortunately not a place you can get comfortable enough to sleep. On 14 hour flights one hopes to sleep."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Hard cushioning and narrow seats on the 787"
Pros: "All Qatar employees were friendly and helpful. A great flight!"
Pros: "Good in-flight service"
Cons: "Cramped seats"
Cons: "We had to wait for about 5 years, more than 3 hours unscheduled wait. During this time we were provided with a very poor breakfast."
Pros: "In general the crew was very nice."
Cons: "The dreamliner is a little tight in relation to the B777. The Kosher meals very all the same for breakfast lunch and snack"
Cons: "1. rude staff - i stood in Jburg at the counter for 13 minutes (i checked my clock) while 8 staff ladies spoke among themselves in a myriad of languages. FINALLY one lady asked if i had been helped! I said no and she was clearly less than thrilled to be the one to help with my question. i literally just wanted to ask if my seat assignment was a window, middle or aisle, but it was like i was the bane of her existence and i interrupted their social hour. On my outbound flight (ORD to DOH) I also watched three staff members be beyond rude to guest after guest at the check in counter regarding baggage when they came forward to "re check-in" which was a new requirement for most people. There was a lot of general confusion on behalf of the consumers and the staff was NOT the least bit patient or helpful in explaining what they needed from us or why this flight had different procedures than normal. I still don't know why they were so fussy about baggage and made everyone re check in at the gate in fact. And they didnt do it to my baggage so i have no idea why they were so rude to some and completely left others alone. (didn't seem to have to do with size, carrying of electronics, i don't know?) 2. the physical flight - you changed my original flight time to something that was REALLY close for my connection from DOH to CDG, so you instead bumped me to a later flight without consulting me. it would have caused me to miss a connection flight I booked separately through EasyJet from Pairs to my home airport BIQ. I had to figure that out on my own. RUSH through Doha to make my 35 min connection and barely was allowed to board my onward Paris flight by the Qatar gate staff which was only cutting it close as a result of YOUR changes! Yet i was treated like i was somehow "late" and wouldn't be able to board ??? Again incredibly rude staff. Subsequently you lost my luggage because the connection was too tight. i landed on Friday and it didn't catch up to me until Tuesday. Not one person has said sorry or offered any restitution. And this is honestly what upsets me the most. I doubt anyone even reads this. pathetic. I work for a travel club and since Monday (so in 4 days) I have actively reached out to 4 clients to cancel and re-booked their Qatar airways flight to another carrier to get them to Johannesburg. They will be doing the same safari experience I did, but I will NOT recommend and book my clients on Qatar after my experience."
Cons: "You canceled our flight in the last minute. we were starting our holidays and missed one day included the booking reservation. We didn't get any refund regarding this issue. On the other hand, i booked my special meal and never received it."
Cons: "Luggage was lost"
Pros: "The flight was on time, not full and the crew and the entertainment was excellent. Very happy with the experience of flying on Qatar Airways from Johannesburg to Miami."
Cons: "Everything was well, the food was good not great (even for airplane food) and the only other issue is it seemed like trash from our drinks and food services was picked up for quite a while or until we brought it to the flight attendants ourselves."
Pros: "landed safely"
Cons: "Had to claim bags at Doha and go through multiple security screenings to board connecting flight. At one point all the security was not functioning and we were packed up in lines. Barely had time to stop at the restroom before final security check where it was all so disorganized. After that check we were told that if we left we had to go through security again. Would have been nice to know that upfront. It was a madhouse going through that final security check and my husband's wallet was lost for a bit. No one really tried to help and we were told to move aside. Finally someone saw that it had fallen beside one of the counters. It was all horrible. Because of all this our 5 hour layover was a hassle with no time for food, etc. The whole airport experience was confusing and badly handled."
Pros: "Excellent in every way. Clearly a top tier airlines. I will choose Qatar Airlines at every opportunity."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Kayak/priceline re-booked my flight for my sister and I from SAA to BA, but failed to completely reissue us tickets. When we checked in for the flight, we had no ticket for the first leg of the flight, but we had tickets for the remaining flights. We immediately called to fix this problem, but due to slow customer service, we weren't issued tickets in time and the flight left without us. We missed all remaining connecting flights and were forced to buy New tickets. Now we have to work with kayak/priceline to get all my money back due to their error. We came back a day later than expected and missed going back to work."
Pros: "I enjoyed the staff"
Cons: "The screens were old school and I HS a hard time getting it to work Also the sleep mask I received had sticky stuff all over it when I opened the package."
Pros: "Excellent Cabin Crews, Flights on time"
Cons: "Food is mediocre at best, comfort on 787 is terrible."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Because of poor connection, arrived for flight 15 min. before departure. Gate agent wouldn't allow us to board and wouldn't help us rebook. Offered no help."
Pros: "Seat space. Stevice. Terminal."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Attendant was rude and never really finished service, never remembered any requests and consistently skipped guests when providing food or drink service, cabin kept oscillating between either too hot or too cold."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and everything else was very good and comfortable on the flight."
Cons: "The boarding process was odd. We got to the gate too early (by maybe 10 mins before boarding time) so we were told to sit outside of the designated seating area and that they would make an announcement when we should go back up there. There was never an announcement, but we felt it was getting late so we went to check at the desk and they then said we were late and they were waiting on us. They were very nice about everything, but just thought that was really strange."
Cons: "We took off in a terrible storm with lightning striking all around the plane. Very rough, lightning which scared the hell out of both me and my wife."
Pros: "Amazing and efficient when we had to be rerouted due to the hurricane we had excellent service and care at the hotel which made my stay for a short while a memorable"
Cons: "The plane was quite congested as the seats were very narrow coming back to Miami"
Pros: "Real silverware."
Cons: "The crew was good, but the attentiveness of the crew on the second leg was amazing"
Pros: "Crew was very calm, courtesy, and cheerful."
Pros: "Since not enough room in "What could have been better". For as long as my second flight was, from Dubai to Boston, the seats in coach were criminal!!! Way to narrow, especially if sitting next to a large person. Not nearly enough distance to seat in front of you, can't even bend over to reach some-"
Cons: "thing on the floor. The seats do NOT recline enough to be able to relax & get shuteye. It would have been really nice to have a footrest of some type, even busses have those! I am a small person, 5'1'' and 110 lb. Consider not having such a huge gap between 1st class and economy. Way over crowded."
Cons: "Check the head phone sets have both speakers working. I had to ask for a different set which was fine"
Pros: "."
Cons: "."
Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "The food and the crew way of speaking to people"
Cons: "Lap dances. Strippers. Cabin crew in miniskirts snd high heels."
Pros: "The food was nice and the crew were friendly."
Cons: "My screen didn't work properly and only after asking about it 4+ times were we moved to other seats. Unfortunately the new seats were double middle seats for my husband and I who left window and aisle seats respectively. Please fix your entertainment, Emirates."
Pros: "Everything Was Just Perfect"
Pros: "Cold meal was nice, standard business class, no amenities. Nice crew, welcome on board."
Cons: "The crew was in a constant hurry after. The meal was ok, but no cocktails served. Tablet was not working remotely, it has to be connected to the dock all the time. USB port was also not working, did not charge my phone. I’m glad that we did not buy the business upgrade for his flight before. It would felt wasting all our points. Luckily we were upgraded during check in. Check in was awful, they checked in 4 people in front of us roughly in 20 minutes in MLE. It felt like waiting for forever."
Cons: "Very poorly organized boarding"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing. The video quality and sound were not great"
Pros: "The flight"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "I felt very pampered!"
Pros: "Emirates is everything we can wish"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, enough space for legs, helpful crew, We were offered a voucher to stay in a hotel close to the airport to get a few hours of sleep or relaxation. The voucher included lunch and dinner with good food.."
Cons: "I didn't like the long delay to stay in the airport on hard chairs before leaving Cape Town. The delay affected all the other connections with long periods of stay in the airports. The whole flight was rough, being shaken all the time."
Pros: "Flight delayed 7:16 hours"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Flight attendants not friendly, some downright rude and looked like they hated their jobs (bumped into seats, rushed service, visibly irritated when people would ask for assistance), my video wasn’t working properly and was told “it’s an old plane, there is nothing we can do, it will be retired soon, we can get you some you some magazines”, food was terrible."
Cons: "crew doesn’t seem to talk to each other. advised multiple times that my touch screen didn’t work and that i didn’t want the jain meal. your check-in interface does not allow changing food preferences. this should change"
Cons: "The flight on the B777 was most uncomfortable, even in Business Class. Will avoid any flight in this aircraft/airline in future"
Cons: "The seating room in the 747 with 10 seats per row is limiting and uncomfortable. The passenger beside me was pushing well into my space, and the rambunctious flight attendants kept marching right into me and banging my seat with the cart, once also spilling water all over me. (Though she was very nice about it, and I wasn’t upset with her personally.)"
Pros: "Extremely courteous personnel at airprot IMECABLE service on board Plane brand new"
Cons: "That I had top travel to FLL ibnstead of Miami"
Pros: "The Crew on Emirates are just the best in the industry"
Cons: "paid extra for legroom but the legroom seats have a big disadvantage of no place to put things you need on a long flight."

Pros: "It was fine. Crew was pleasant, though obviously stretched thin. Food was decent. We ran a little late boarding, but they managed to take off almost on time."
Cons: "The 777 was crowded and had very little leg room. Our seats were worse than most, as they were over the wing which limited visibility and restricted the already limited leg room of that passenger even more."
Pros: "Very comfortable and good service aboard plane."
Cons: "Very long ride on bus from plane to terminal in DubaI. Very unusual and uncomfortable."
Cons: "debarking process was one of the longest in my life"
Pros: "Start scurty things with people who has short time to the next flight"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very cheerful. There was a good variety of movies and other entertainment."
Cons: "The issue is the electronics ban which is not the fault of Emirates. An extra bottle of wine was requested after dinner which never arrived. During boarding, it was difficult to know which group was boarding when."
Pros: "Friendly, accommodating, and professional service!"
Cons: "It was delayed for 8 hours!!!"
Pros: "I like the food , yummy"
Cons: "I was in window seat. When serving food and beverages crew didn't give much concern."

Cons: "Short on instruction on using the entertainment module. Having to repeatedly ask for water because it only came in small half glasses each time"

Cons: "Boarding process is the one area that could be improved."
Cons: "I found out that my payment was not verified as I arrived at the airport and I wasn't informed my email or any kind of way about it. It was a total disaster. Deeply disappointed. Regards"
Pros: "Good sleep is most important & emirates is very good in this regard. Food is only fair especially the hot food served at dinner. Wines served are generally of a good to a high standard. Some crew members are better than others. Some are really excellent including any of the Irish members of the team - they always standout with their warmth, friendship & ability to read people & situations."
Pros: "The air conditioning worked properly"
Cons: "You asked for a drink and they never return☹️"
Cons: "Crew was unprofessional Bags got lost and took forever for any bags to go through on carrousel They boarded nearly an hour before take off and process was very disorganized Hardly any water served"
Pros: "Received a flight credit"
Cons: "Emirates overbooked the flight and we were bumped."
Pros: "Seats are way better than other airlines and the entertainment systems is way better. Finally, someone decided it would be a good idea to provide power outlets in a plane. Why was that so hard?"
Pros: "Communication on phone prior to flight regarding baggage allowance & other matters was handled promptly & efficiently by friendly & knowledgeable phone agents. Ground crews in airports & at gates most friendly & efficient"

Pros: "The two check in bags rule."
Cons: "Not applicable"
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Customer services"
Pros: "I was happy to avail of Wifi in the sky."
Cons: "No entertainment! For an major international flight, one expects some seatback entertainment"
Pros: "Well organized on check in. Attentive"
Cons: "It was ok"
Pros: "New plane, fresh feel. Food is ok."
Cons: "Airline feels basic and no frills."
Pros: "The Flight attendants are all awesome and undesrtanding...and the open wifi ate Kigali airport was great."
Cons: "No vegetarian option Bad boarding procedures, no one gets direction and it was very slow"
Pros: "Rwanda Air is the best"
Cons: "Landing at Kigali was bit rough"
Pros: "Friendly service"
Pros: "I think that I appreciated all the details during the trip. As I get my kayak app in my IPhone, i firstly received a notice that the check in started.... At each step, I could see the time discounted through my phone"
Cons: "As I said, I liked everything. From the departure to the landing"
Cons: "My luggage was broken into and stolen. They sawed off the zip on my suitcase and broke the handle. Stole a number of personal items including a belt, perfume, t-shirts and cash."
Pros: "Food and free WiFi. Ample seating space."
Cons: "Rerouted through Dar-es-Salaam at last minute rather than being a direct flight as scheduled"
Pros: "They respect the timing"
Cons: "The luggage escalator is not working and you have to carry it from one point to another..."
Pros: "That there were not many people on the second leg and that the plane was clean"
Cons: "The fact that we had an itinerary change with an extra stop (unannounced until 15 minutes before I boarded the flight) that delayed us by 1+ hours, that we were delayed from leaving Kigali by 1.5 hours and none of the crew could explain what was going on, that the rwandair staff was rude. I mean... It's Rwanda so I didn't expect much customer service (they are generally particularly bad by African, European, Asian or American standards) and I definitely wasn't impressed"
Pros: "Timeliness, Service, Cleanliness Comfort"
Pros: "The food initially given at 2:00am IST was really good and so I didn't even have to wake up again to eat."

Cons: "We had couple of ours delay and not well communicated"
Pros: "Friendly staff, decent snacks and entertainment options"
Pros: "The plane was nice and the captain gave good info."
Cons: "Why was dinner served at 2AM? They woke me up three times to serve drinks and food and the cabin lights were never turned off, for an overnight flight! The Kigali airport waiting area is awful, and the holding area made it so that every child had to use the bathroom as soon as we boarded."
Cons: "The food options were unclear- they didn't announce what was in each meal, aside from the type of meat. It wouldn't kill you to have a vegetarian option on hand either, especially since your website doesn't work."
Pros: "What did you like? the attendants were very kind"
Pros: "Was good on time"
Cons: "The airline moved my original non-stop flight forward by 3 hours. The new flight conflicted with another flight I had earlier in the day. The airline would not allow me to cancel the flight, and could only offer me a 1-stop flight that arrived at my destination hours after my initial flight would have arrived."
Pros: "Everything was on time and comfortable. Will take the same flight again in the future."
Pros: "Very slow check in. Bit slow and chaotic at gate. Pleasant enough service but not excetional. Smooth flight. Informative pilot. Silly short bus ride to terminal. Very very long wait for baggage."
Pros: "Good food, friendly and professional staff, a new and sparkling clean plane, swift retrieval of luggage upon arrival in Kigali. Thank you!"
Pros: "Flight was delayed over an hour. Otherwise the plane was new, everything felt good, and I have nothing to complain about!"
Pros: "Staff courteous and friendly"
Cons: "Some choices on menu do not do well by time of serving ie fish"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Time management"
Cons: "No entertnainment"
Pros: "Planes were great and flight crew excellent."
Pros: "Clean, comfortable plane and seating. On time service, courteous attendants. A meal served on a flight that was only about an hour in duration - very nice. Very pleased with this airline."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Everything went well as expected..."
Pros: "movie dinner on each leg of the flight"
Cons: "the movie didn't finish in the first leg and they didn't show it for the second leg, so I never learned the ending the flight arrived 40 minutes late"
Cons: "Too cold on the plane - way, way too cold"
Pros: "RwandAir flew us to Nairobi instead and I thought that was good of them to make that change for us. The above evaluation pertains to the flight to Nairobi."
Pros: "Food was beef brochettes, one of the best economy meals I have had. Wine was very good, from South Africa."
Cons: "Seats were not adjustable. It may be that I was in front of the exit row, but I looked and didn't see anyone leaning back anywhere. On the other hand, flight was only 1 hr 20 minutes."
Pros: "The Rwandair plane was modern and clean. Kigali airport has a nice cafe, and check-in was efficient. The plane left a few minutes early."
Cons: "Check-in closes one hour before your flight. Economy class: Food was a clingwrapped sandwich. The attendant gave me two bottles of a good South African wine. Security has gotten quite uptight at Kigali airport. They now stop your cab a couple hundred meters short of the airport, and have a dog check the vehicle. You have to pass through another security checkpoint at the entry to the airport building, and a third security into the boarding area. The final security check even takes away any empty bottles you have. And don't take any fingernail scissors in your handcarry, even if they have blunt points. You may have an hour or more wait in preboarding, and without water or bathroom excess. So takke care of these needs in advance."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "This airline is an operational nightmare. I purchased a ticket with a connection, and the second flight being a codeshare, two months in advance. On the day of travel, I checked in, checked two bags, and headed to the gate. An hour before the flight, a Rwandaair agent approached me to inform me that they were no longer code sharing with precision air, the second flight. Chaos ensued, my bags got lost, I got stuck in Nairobi, etc. in Nairobi, one of the Kenya airways agents literally said to me 'avoid Rwandaair and precision airlines - they are both airlines that do not follow any regulations, and not just operational, but safety as well.'"
Pros: "The flight times were perfect and the seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The food was just ok"
Pros: "Everything was excellent, service, cabin, food."
Cons: "First announcement cockpit was just before landing. Would have liked some information before takeoff and once in the air"
Pros: "In general, it was a pleasant flight from Entebbe to Kigali. The Bombardier was in pristine condition. There was no food offered (the flight is 45 minutes) and there is no entertainment available. The crew was pleasant and the seat comfortable (I am 5'11). I would fly again with RwandAir."
Cons: "There was nothing significant enough taken into consideration the characteristics of this flight and the construction in Entebbe."
Pros: "Very professional - gave us a good meal - although flight was a little more than an hour. Will recommend to friends"
Cons: "Service & good landing"
Cons: "The arrival time was stated as 1:40pm but in reality it was a 1:10pm arrival so I had arranged my driver to collect at the wrong time and he wasn't there when I arrived."
Pros: "Unfortunately i missed the flight from kla to Nairobi via Entebbe due to closue of Entebbe Road. Return from Nairobi was okey but was delayed for about 40 minutes"
Cons: "Food needs to be addressed"
Pros: "They were professional, timely and courteous. Except for one flight attendant who was a bit rude, the entire flight was enjoyable"
Cons: "The rude flight attendant who was welcoming people to the plane"

Have people at the Westjet counter

The flight that you gave us, JQ7 from Melbourne did not exist. Therefore we had to stay in Melbourne for another 24 hours and find another new route and flights to return to Heathrow. All a strain and stress. Your service to us for the return journey useless. So far, I have not found that you have corrected any of your failings and therefore it could also happen again to others tomorrow, next week, or next month. The return journey was a total disaster.

Wrote in the previous message. Poor. Delayed flight and lost working day. 4.5h together to rebook the flight, get the hotel voucher, get to the hotel and check in. Insanely slow.

Pros: "Amsterdam airport and Rome airport were as breeze to navigate, even only knowing English"

Cons: "Except for the man next to me - great!"
Pros: "Food was excellent, frequent and filling"
Cons: "The seat was not comfortable compared to my prior leg of the journey. Unfortunately the bathrooms were not clean, I understand that it's not the sole responsibility of the crew and passengers need to be mindful too."
Cons: "Boarding was very confusing. There was an area where they were checking people's bags or something near the gate and you didn't know if you needed to stop at it or continue. They didn't collect garbage before landing. Not only did we have to take our bags off the plane, we had to carry our garbage (drink cups/food served) to the front of the plane to throw out."

Pros: "Crew good flight was fine apart from delay due to fog in Amsterdam but kept informed"
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to weather in Amsterdam area"
Pros: "The supplied pack of toothpaste/toothbrush"
Pros: "Equally friendly crew and experience. It was complimented by the time we got to spend in the fantastic KLM lounge while we waited for the flight."
Cons: "Nothing!"
Cons: "The leg room on the long flight was less than I would have wished and it was particularly bad when the person in front put their seat back. this was a day time flight and it would have been good to have a bit more room to use a laptop."
Pros: "great choice of entertainment content, friendly crew"
Cons: "Why do the crew have to slam the overhead and catering compartments to get them to shut?"

Cons: "Nothing to improve"

Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats in Economy Comfort. Legroom and recline were OK but the seats were extremely narrow. No evening meal and breakfast was minimal"
Pros: "Flight crew on flight from Amsterdam to Cape Town were probably the most friendly and enthusiastic I've experienced and no, they were not all young. The plane was spotless throughout the flight. They were always coming around with water and juice and they genuinely seemed to care about all the passengers. The Flight back crew were just the opposite. More like the old lazy farts you get on the American carriers or BA or QF long haul. Whoo have been there for the long haul and should have stopped ages ago."
Cons: "The Entertainment images on the screens promoted Beauty and the Beast, Batman Lego movie but neither were on the system! Food quality was rubbish"
Pros: "Flight unpleasant. Ground staff in Marseiile great but gate crew didn't control carry on baggage and many of us could not use overhead bins because of passengers who stowed more than one and often oversized suitcases above, so we and many others had to place carry on suitcases under seat. Attendant on plane totally unhelpful and could have rearranged a few bags to make room but preferred to stay in back of plane and talk. To be fair, rest of flight was pleasant although late due in part to boarding issues."
Cons: "Carry on baggage issues and storage on plane. One aloof and unhelpful member of flight crew."
