Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Personal screen was modern and provided a great variety to keep me entertain during the very long flight. Seats are unexpectedly big and very comfortable together with functional well designed pockets beside the screen, where I could put my personal items. New and clean cabin."

They told me the flight will wait for us because there were 20 plus people also need to get on that plane. When the time of boarding we heard they were calling us to the front and explained the flight we were suppose to be connecting already took off. They had to booked us to another airline. We were extremely disappointed! We asked if we could took another Japanese airline but they said our luggages were already transferred to that airline and the tickets were printed!

Using a corporate credit card I have used for several years. I didn't get confirmation before I went to bed. Only next morning, when I woke up 5 am for getting my flight, I finally had the confirmation. Could never get it before I went to bed 1.30 but - but they could confirm the payment was done alright! Hurray! Never booking with Momondo/Kiwi again."

Pros: "Inflight good. Food average. Unfortunately there was AirCond snag and delayed for over an hour, arrived KULAP safely."
Cons: "Attentive and helpful cabin crew."
Pros: "Huge plane that wasn’t full so it was very comfortable. Boarding was quick especially since I’m a Star Alliance Gold member so was one of the first on the plane. Bags also came out first & delivery was very quick. Looking forward to flying Thai again several more times this month & wish I could experience their international service which I’m sure is stellar."
Cons: "Only thing I would mention is alcohol is not served but that’s apparently standard for Thai domestic flights."
Pros: "ARN to BKK: Good crew, good seat (Thai Premium Economy - available Scandinavian flights only), on time departure and early arrival BKK."
Cons: "Food was tasty enough, but not hot when served (a common problem with many airlines) and only two options for Premium Economy. Entertainment options also limited."
Pros: "Quick & efficient boarding but cost cutting has taken the shine off what used to be a quality airline experience."
Cons: "I’m not fussy about food, but the menu today was about as uninspiring as they come. Along with polite but perfunctory service and a seat that is nothing better than premium economy, I don’t know how they can get away with calling their business class product, Business Class!"

Pros: "The service from start to finish was superb. The flight to Hong Kong had the on board attendants at full service the whole journey. Blankets and pillows were supplied as standard and plenty of complimentary food. There was a genuine sense that the on board attendants wanted you to be as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "I can't think of anything really. Perhaps the seats could have slightly more leg room but hey. What can you expect from economy."
Pros: "Flight attendants really attentive and friendly. Flight arrived right on time and at a close gate. Good food."
Pros: "I am frequent air traveler that logs about 100k miles a year and this is the first time I felt like writing a review about an airline. I traveled with my 4 year old son on this trip. Excellent service, high quality food options and flight amenities. I really enjoyed the food as did my son. My son left his backpack behind on the first leg and the airline staff retreived it and delivered it to the lounge in less than 15 minutes. I was astounded and had almost given up on seeing the bag again, given my experience with other airlines in the past. This is going to be airline of choice for future trips!"
Cons: "None in particular"
Pros: "We always fly with Cathay. Usually 2-3 times per year and feel the staff are professional and service is extremely good. I recently fractured my ankle and staff provided excellent assistance."
Cons: "The breakfasts for economy passengers is shocking. This has not always been the case. However, Now it is presented in a card board box and of very poor quality."

Pros: "Overall speaking CX flights quality has been declining over recent years"
Pros: "The overall value is good."

Cons: "Flight delay of 20 mins."
Pros: "Staff were superb from check in to landing. Service from MAN to HKG was impeccable."
Cons: "Seat was a touch faulty"
Cons: "Traveled from London to Hong Kong. Crew was disinterested and disorganised. No snacks available in galley."
Pros: "Boarding was orderly and efficient, the polar opposite of the mad rush that can sometimes happen when cabin crew don't take charge of the boarding order. Crew were courteous and multilingual. Leg room felt a bit better than average for an international flight. Food was very tasty. The inflight entertainment selection and screen quality was excellent."
Cons: "They managed to run out of the Western breakfast option (which I did not want anyway, but many British tourists had to make do with yoghurt and fruit due to unfamiliarity with congee). The entertainment system is controlled by touchscreen only. An elegant solution that is simple to keep clean, but you get tired of holding your arm up at eye level."
Pros: "Very efficient with the timing of take off and landing. The crew members were lovely and polite."
Cons: "The time was a bit awkward esp the overnight flight back from Colombo to Hong Kong left us shattered all day long as the seats are too small and congested which makes it difficult for us to sleep or even sit comfortably. Wish they arranged the flight to earlier times."
Pros: "that is great flight. I'm very with fight"
Cons: "tiket issuing time some has mistake than we want to change very big problem, that take a hour and hour."
Pros: "super comfortable seats, complete amenities (pillows, blankets, TV and a plug to charge your devices). flights are also on time and the food is great! I've been flying through budget airlines until now; although I flew economy with Cathay, the flight experience felt very premium."
Pros: "Food was good and seats were comfy :) Quick boarding and timely departures which I really like coz it got me to the destination pretty on time compared to other airlines."
Cons: "Delay from hk to osaka :( but understandable due to technical issues ans weather"
Pros: "There is actually meal between hkg and TPE. This is new."
Cons: "The cabin is just too warm."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly for a change"
Cons: "When an aerobridge is used, boarding should be sequential to avoid pile ups. First the last rows should be boarded, and then the start rows"
Cons: "Being an experienced traveller, I am for the first tine encounter a female flight attendant who was not only impolite to passengers, and kicked toilet doors!"
Pros: "Good food and service."
Cons: "The premium economy cabin configuration - it was a full flight, I was seated at the right-hand side of the cabin, and the toilet is at the left, and it was not easy and having to step on people's feet to go to the tooilet."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient. Crew did their job pleasantly ."
Cons: "Food was very ordinary, not up to what I expect in business class."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Everything was on time, with no hitches or major inconveniences."
Cons: "I prefer the newer planes which include USB ports for charging mobile devices. This one had a power socket instead, which was usable, but only when the tray table was down, which was mildly annoying. First world problem, really."
Pros: "Staff were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The food was atrocious and this was business class. The toilet lights were so dimmed all the time you couldn't see what was going on. Last year we flew business class Cathay pacific from Hong Kong to Melbourne and loved it. This year we decided to fly from Melbourne to Dusseldorf and then from Frankfurt to Melbourne with this airline. Won't be doing that again. Why pay business class fares to be disapointed"
Pros: "The crew was polite and efficient."
Cons: "I had requested special vegetarian meal. Although I did receive this meal, it was barely a meal, the full course was not provided. Only the main course and salad was provided. The bread(bun) and dessert were missing. It's not clear to me why vegetarians would be deprived of a full course meal."
Cons: "Terriable service"
Pros: "A free upgrade to premium economy - I think the flight was over booked."
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Cathay Pacific forgot to send paperwork for departure which resulted in 1 hour delay and then given us furthest possible gate on arrival in HK"
Pros: "I really appreciated that Cathay flew another plane in to pick us up when our original aircraft was mechanically grounded at the previous destination. The crew were very professional."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed due to mechanical failure and didn't arrive from its destination: Taipei. We were not told about the possibility of our flight being cancelled as we arrived at check-in, we were allowed to check our bags first, issued boarding passes and *then* we were told to come back to check in counter in 3.5-4 hours. Our checked luggage had already been taken and with it, clean clothes, toiletries and other items that could have made the waiting more comfortable. After coffee and a snack we decided to check in to the capsule hotel at Narita. Minimum stay was one night at that hour of the day - for stays after 6pm. While I appreciated that Cathay got us out later that evening, the plane we flew was one of the oldest in the fleet: the seats did not recline at all so it was very uncomfortable. It was a late night flight but no one was offered pillows or blankets. (I did receive one upon request). We arrived in Hong Kong in the early hours of the next morning - 3 hours late - after the airport train had finished running so I paid for a taxi home which I normally would not need to do since I already had a train ticket. so my flight experience did cost me some extra money this trip."
Pros: "The crew was excellent and helpful."
Cons: "Some seats could not be made upright and passengers had to move around during landing time. While serving food, it took close to 2 hours to start serving everyone and the pre-ordered meal was served. Very delayed."
Cons: "6 and a half hours delayed. Poor communications from the airline about the delay and when the flight would leave. Some of the times given were clearly unrealistic as equipment was still in-route to DFW at departure time"
Pros: "The captain landed the aircraft exact at the time he committed when the flight took off"
Cons: "Technical superiority & safety of operations"
Cons: "When we booked we asked for a child's meal and we advised of allergies. However I don't see why we would have to ask as we booked a child's seat and you have to provide the age which she is 4. When onboard from SYD/HKG and HKG/LONDON, NO meal was available for our child except for what everyone else was eating. She is anaphylaxis to shellfish, she was given shrimp!!!!! I am sure if she was given a child's meal she would not have got this. We were then told we have to advise the airline 12 hours before we fly that we want a child's meal. I am sorry but when travelling we should not have to do this and nor have we ever had to do it on any other airline. Poor poor poor!!!!"
Pros: "Luggage allowance, in-flight meals, good flight, arrived early"
Cons: "Cabin a bit "dull""
Pros: "Seated 19K in business class on the 777 from Manchester. Crew was fantastic and responded quickly and enthusiastically. Breakfast muesli was really good"

Pros: "Great crew, quick boarding"
Pros: "Ice cream on the plane"
Cons: "my main course was not that tasty.."
Pros: "Cathay had agent waiting for me at my landing gate and guided me through the change of flights and led me to the proper gate for my new connection. They were very customer service oriented."
Cons: "Flight was late into Hong Kong and I missed the connection to the United flight to San Francisco."
Pros: "Surprisingly the legspace was good enough. I am a 6 footer and i did not have much of a problem with leg space. With respect to entertainment , there were some good latest movies. The food and snacks were good."
Cons: "The crew needs to be little more polite. Except one girl rest of them , i felt was not as polite as they should be. The moat important thing about the flight is there was just one restroom in the center of the flight and obviously its always occupied. So most of the times you end up walking to the end of the plane to use the rest room."
Pros: "Customer service"
Cons: "The guy in front reclined for the whole 14 hour flight so I didn't have much leg room."
Pros: "did not get the flight,because of no not given correct notice"
Cons: "don't know,flight missed..virgi s fault 100%"
Pros: "yes to both."
Cons: "Wine list was poor. Enough of a premium is built into the business class fare to get some decent wines onto the list. Coffee is not so good either."
Pros: "The seat were nice & the staff more helpful than before"
Cons: "Food can be better Entertainment is not good at all, you are starting it after take off, which might take an hour, and closing it an hour before landing Which is something not nice at all"
Pros: "Crew were very pleasant"
Pros: "Food varieties are not that good"
Cons: "Make the food quality, quantity and varieties to be improved"

Pros: "it would be a lie to say i liked anything"

Pros: "The cabin crew were excellent"
Cons: "Smaller que in Abu Dhabi at security"
Cons: "Foord service poor overall"
Pros: "Quick boarding, minimum queues."
Cons: "Everything. What an absolute joke of an airline. 1) Flight attendant spilt a half a bottle of water on me and didn’t even apologise 2) Same tv shows and movies as 5 months ago. 3) no eye shades 4) entertainment turned off around 20-25 mins before landing and all headseats collected 5) staff"
Pros: "Everything was excellent. The entertainment system was also excellent."
Cons: "The flight had onboard wifi which was awesome to be able to be online during the flight but it did lack the level of service expected. Everything on the flight was fantastic except the wifi which kept dropping out"
Cons: "The crew is the most arrogant and ill mannered from all the other international airlines I have flown with - so please be ready for a very unwelcome experience. I had also worded this out as a complain to them, but received a very lukewarm and uninterested reply."
Pros: "Main meal (Singapore noodles) was actually ok."
Cons: "The cabin crew had a very difficult time dealing with the annoying passengers, who were mainly tourists returning from Abu Dhabi. They had a tough job, but it was all very negative and stressful."
Pros: "Breakfast was slightly better than dinner choice"
Cons: "Window seat is quite cramped and I am not sure why I had to pay to choose a seat before this flight but not for my previous flight to Singapore which resulted in me getting one of the last seats available which was a pretty cramped window seat. Also too many repetitive announcements"
Pros: "The crew were pleasant and visible."
Cons: "Food quality was pretty poor. It used to be so good. I had sea bass which was so dry. There were a group of 30 people travelling together. They monopolised the lobby bar and were rowdy and noisy despite requests from the crew. The flat bed is so hard, it needs a mattress."
Pros: "Both planes had USB ports for charging phones. Food was better this time."
Cons: "Space for seats not enough at all. I know its economy but still...It was very expensive to pay extra to get the extra leg room for Abu Dhabi to Washington flight."
Cons: "The food was seriously too small in portion! Had to go hungry on a full service 14hr flight!"
Pros: "Seat upgrade in response to complaint"
Cons: "Etihad website did not allow check in and seat allocation until arrival at the airport. This meant that, despite having booked months before and making numerous attempts to complete web check in, my wife and I would have been placed in the centre two seats of a block of 4 seats. The check in process makes Ryanair look excellent!"
Pros: "Staff were nice"
Cons: "Seats didn’t work. Both seats couldn’t recline. Not nice on a 13hr flight! Gluten free meal was very average. Poor entertainment compared to other airlines."
Cons: "Smaller leg room than other airlines"

Cons: "The food was not good but for a short flight, I was ok with waiting until I landed in Kathmandu to eat."
Pros: "Travelled in Airbus 380 for the firstvtime and I was impressed by size of the plane and comfort in economy class. Enough of leg space to bend my leg and avoid bad blood circulation. Overall comfortable flight."
Cons: "Again I found behaviour of few Crew Members a bit rute for instance i asked hor headphone from one of the attendant and she immediately told me that it cannot be missing as she put the headphone there by herself making me feel like as if i stole the headphones. I was bit speechless though i really wanted to reply to her but it would have been rude. Second thing I did not like about flight was foir serving. In our over 7 hour flight, we were just served breakfast in the morning just 2 hours before landing. Its not healthy to keep customers hungry what if the customer is diabetic. Airline need to understand that up in the sky we are dependent on them for our basic needs and it should be respected."
Cons: "It’s an old flight with improper seats and seating arrangements ..flight has dull ambience.the food menu most of items were same as of my losangles abudhabi flight .."

Cons: "Single lady travelling and the seat was between two men on both legs. Asked ticketing at Chennai nd he said you will get in Abu Dhabi and did not give boarding pass for the Second leg of flight. Came to Abudhabi and tried to get boarding pass for seating not between two males but the ticketing agent lied to me “ go run your flight is leaving” and gave me seating between two males for 15 hour flight requested"
Pros: "Plenty of spare seating. Cabin staff and crew very helpful."
Cons: "Entertainment was dreadful more than 50pc not working. Flight tracker not working. Back of end rear cabin seats some were loose. Dreading return legs of trip."
Cons: "I wanted to cancel this flight and I am not able to connect to the right department in just fly, this is the most annoying experience I have had. If left unresolved I might not use kayak.com ever again"

Cons: "I don’t recall there being an announcement to say that the flight was boarding, only the screen in the waiting area saying so."
Pros: "food was great!"
Cons: "Same crew not that friendly"
Cons: "Food can be better (and has been in the past). Limited choice in entertainment. Crew could be more polite"

Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "Being charged for extra weight when it use to be that weight .. I had no hand luggage and I noticed some people having three bags .. where's the justification in that"
Cons: "Food and service was better before in 2016"
Pros: "Flight left on time and arrived at destination even earlier"

Pros: "Flight was cancelled"
Cons: "If flight took place"
Cons: "Nothing, one of my best flights ever."

Cons: "Aer Lingus webpage is terrible. Kayak’s is excellent, but I tried to change seats, it would not let me."
Pros: "That I got home"
Cons: "Haha where do I start. The experience overall was poor. One of my flights was canceled by British and they claimed I cancelled it. It was a hot mess all the way around. This left we standing outside the airport in Indi for nearly an hour."
Pros: "The price!"
Cons: "Internet connection."
Pros: "The crew was behaving nice."
Cons: "The website is horrible and full of bugs. In Flight tracker, the same flight returned two results, one in cancelled status and another in delayed status. I called british airways to update my personal details as their website didn't allow me to enter details, the staff messed up the details."
Pros: "Helpful and Friendly Crew. Did their best to help during the delay. Able to take hand baggage on board (unlike our kid journey when forced to check it in at the gate)"
Cons: "Sat on plane for an hour waiting to depart, so delayed landing. The BA feel is no different to budget airlines now."
Cons: "Arrangenents for wheel chairs at London were poor compared to Chicago which was excellent ."

Pros: "What can I say about this awesome flight with great crew and a free upgrade? Fan-dabby-dozy-tastic!"
Pros: "One amazing member of staff - she was the only redeeming person of all the cabin crew. The snacks were good (mini cheddars, mini twix bars and mcvities digestives)."
Cons: "EVERYTHING, but top 3 are: comfort (seats are TINY), legroom (there isn’t any), entertainment (very limited). Lastly, I think I’ll have to gauge out my eyes and ears if I have to endure their safety video one more time..."
Pros: "Crew ok, seat ok"
Cons: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Generally, it was just good."
Pros: "On time service, quick to board ."
Cons: "I’m surprised by now that British airways don’t provide any food for children onboard. A cheese and mushroom toastier is not exactly child friendly"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable"
Pros: "Excellence view of London performered by the pilot. Very please with that."
Cons: "All good except for the seat, let my neck with a bit of pain."
Pros: "I like that we were on time for departure"
Cons: "The speed boarding it was confusing,no one was there in the que until they called you to board then People starting to come up from the que that was already there. Speedy boarding should be exactly that."
Pros: "We had a delay in boarding and the gate crew kept us updated every step of the way. BA remains my favorite to fly long-haul: even in coach, the seats are reasonably spaced and comfortable, the meals are tasty and filling, and the cabin temperature is consistent. Especially appreciate the wine with dinner, which always helps me sleep half the flight away!"
Cons: "The entertainment system on our plane failed in (according to the flight attendant) about half the rows, including mine. That didn't just mean spending 7 or 8 hours of a 10-hour flight unable to watch films, check the flight map, or charge my phone. It also meant that I couldn't call for a flight attendant or even turn on my overhead light, which was really inconvenient."
Cons: "Feeling like one of many cattle funnelled through an already over-capacity system."
Pros: "As always no issues at all, I reserved my seats early to get extra leg room which is always great. Fast boarding and a quick flight, having been on a long haul flight a few hours before I needed this to get home."
Pros: "I appreciated regular fluids; water and juices being brought around as this was quite a long haul-13hrs. Staff were good, although I would say less"
Cons: "The food was still ho-hum, ordinary. I would have thought exiting Singapore food could have been very tasty, some spice etc."
Pros: "Good food good crew flight was good"
Cons: "While in London not good experience for old people especially if wheel chair assembly and to get AA airline birding pass is very confused need to b more in comfortable"
Cons: "Seats to small"
Pros: "BA crews are always great. Also excellent that they don’t have those annoying M&S menus on LCY flights. I don’t object to paying, but it just slows everything down."
Pros: "I remember time when BA was an example other airlines (professional crew, food on board, etc)... Seats are still better than so called cheap lines and more spacious aircraft. Baggage policy quite generous (however expensive)."
Cons: "Well, I believe that now British Airways reach a level of Ryanair... Prices haven't changed thou, still medium range. Customer service very low, no on-board food anymore (even in quite a long haul flights), ridiculous "priority" system, dated planes..."
Pros: "Smooth experience"
Pros: "Great crew. Comfortable."
Cons: "Business class seat configuration remains a problem. Meal service changes means no acknowledgment of frequent fliers with status. Meals assigned in row order so no choices left if you sit at back of business class. If your loyalty is not recognised why be loyal to BA????"
Pros: "Food was excellent"
Cons: "Seats and seat configuration"
Cons: "Very lethargic service and no serving of snacks in between meals"
Pros: "Have providee upstairs seat unfortunately need pay for it. Ice cream so delicious."

Cons: "Service was bad and plane are old traveling with other airlines with business class is way much better then. Ba this was my first and last time traveling with. Ba"
Pros: "I recently had a difficult time returning to Italy and the part of the journey handled by BA was excellent. They were kind and helpful."
