Airline reviews

Pros: "Just excellent. Excellent crew, excellent food, excellent aircraft, and excellent leg room. No recommendations."

Pros: "Economy was surprisingly comfortable. Boarding and deplaning were very quick."

Pros: "Everything was amazing! Crew was helpful, thoughtful and kind."
Cons: "Nothing. It was great. Strongly recommend."

Pros: "The entertainment system, the leg room, the toilets with complimentary tooth brushes. JAL hit it out of the park."

Pros: "Flight was typical."
Cons: "No direction for the connecting flight and no help to understand the connecting flights."

Pros: "Great seat, cabin crew was fine."
Cons: "Too much confusion trying to just find a shower in the lounge"

Pros: "The cabin crew was excellent -- friendly, always helpful, energetic."
Cons: "We requested a seafood special meal. The food quality was satisfactory, but most of the items tasted very bland. The accompanying dishes were unimaginative -- raw vegetables (salad), steamed vegetables, pickled vegetables. One exeption was a smoked salmon bit with capers -- this was the tastiest part among 8 meals over 4 flights."

Pros: "33" seats"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "The crew amazing. Food was great"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Very good airline except for the fact that the staff at Narita airport."

Cons: "Nothing. This company deserves its reputation for excellence."

Pros: "great food, staff and service. I like it when i can brush my teeth on a over night flight with disposable tooth brush and tooth paste."
Cons: "Flight delay communication could be better. There were some major confusions between the gates on where my flight was going to land and departure until it was finally announced that flight was delayed."

Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "."

Pros: "Friendly and helpful"

Pros: "Customer service was on point . Thanks Again !"

Pros: "Always on time!"

Pros: "Crew was very nice. They let us switch seats when my boyfriend's TV wasn't working"

Pros: "Superb services!"
Cons: "I don't think there's anything I didn't like during my journey"

Pros: "The staff was attentive. The seats are comfortable. The in-flight entertainment is great!"
Cons: "The headphone jacks are temperamental. If I put the headphone jack all the way in the port it would only play in the right ear of my headphone. On my flight to Tokyo and on my flight home the same thing happened. You has to pull the headphone jack out slightly to get sound in both earbuds."

Pros: "Very nice quality crew and consistent service. Very helpful at desk check-in. Compared to US airlines, is much prefer Japan Airlines!"
Cons: "The flight was late to board. The crew was polite but not overly friendly. I wish they had an earlier flight so we didn't have a 15 hr delay in Narita but I guess the itinerary is what it is."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "more movie options!"

Pros: "Bought my ticket in June, when I could access the AA site for my seat selection, it wanted $18 to $35 to make the seat selection. We chose to get the assignment at the airport, but could only get it at tge gate. Made me feel like I was flying standby!"

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "The flight is on time,service is excellent."

Pros: "Once again the service from the flight attendants was perfect."

Pros: "JAL work ethics are what the Japanese excel at, so there's not much to complain about."
Cons: "The same as most other airlines, the seat width and pitch has been getting smaller. Even with seat by the aisle, my elbow sometimes bumped inadvertently a wayward flight attendant."

Pros: "As expected from JAL, the flight was amazing in every way. The food (the Japanese meal) was not typical airline food, it was actually very good. The courtesy packets had many useful items including eye refreshers, lip balm, and the bathrooms were kept very clean and stocked with both mouthwash and toothbrush/paste. All together as flawless and comfortable an experience as possible on a commercial carrier."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like, but if I could make a suggestion it would be to offer a larger selection of movies and shows on the long-haul flights. Also the cabin twmperature was a bit too warm but I understand that might vary from flight to flight."

Pros: "Good food. Very friendly and helpful attendants. They also gave souvenir toys for my 2-year-old son."

Cons: "None"

Pros: "The crew were the nicest group of flight attendants I have ever encountered. The offered assortment of snack during my flight. I got a scented warm hand towel before they service me a meal. They even use real silverware in economy"

Pros: "Best and consistent service."

Pros: "The schedule was convenient to get to Tokyo quickly Check in was fast"
Cons: "The food was more "modest" than I'm used to, but my expectations aren't high"

Pros: "I was surprised that such a short flight was able to use the newest generation of the 737, the 800 series. While as cramped your typical 737, the seat backs are super thin to allow just that much extra leg room for my two-meter frame. As always, the cabin crew was lovely."

Pros: "Amazingly polite, smiling happy people. Respectful, it actually makes your day to deal with employees like this."
Cons: "Nothing. Was great."

Pros: "My son and I enjoyed the courteous and genuinely friendly service and attention from all flight personnel paid too us to ensure a wonderful experience to and from Japan. From Hawaii JAL manager upon check in concern for my son not feeling well to the attendant realizing we spoke no Japanese to apologize and begin conversing in English, every one was pleasant and professional in desire to please us and make our trip so comfortable."

Cons: "Everything was great !"

Pros: "Attention given to each passenger by flight crew."

Pros: "We had to come home 2 weeks early due to the virus, and Singapore airlines were brilliant at changing the flights. Even got upgraded to the extra leg room for free"
Cons: "The extra leg room seats were naff, I like getting comfy in a chair and these ones were not. The screen was too far away and the arm rests didn’t move. Also, due to my partner having to swap seats, I was sat on my own next to strangers. They slept the whole way, so the crew never disturbed them meaning I missed out on food and drinks, even when asked"

Cons: "Better movie selection. Better organized boarding in Frankfurt"

Pros: "Flexible seating due to only very few passengers. On time departure and arrival"

Pros: "Crew were amazing and great entertainment"

Pros: "Perfect timing"

Pros: "Boarding went smoothly, crew extremely curtious and helpful."

Pros: "Foods. Drinks. Entertainment."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything’s so perfect!"

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "None"

Pros: "excellent - comfy plane, great service, excellent stuff."

Pros: "(Previous PE comparisons: Turkish AL, Air NZ, SAS) Ease of check-in, on-time dep/arr, crew attention and responsiveness, seating within the range to be expected of this class."
Cons: "Plane condition: Cosmetic plastic panel below monitor and seat back pocket on Seat 31E fell off when foot rest was lowered; had previously been secured by adhesive tape. Panel removed by crew. In-flight entertainment system: Persistent intermittent loss of sound while listening to movie or TV program. Food: Tried to use "Book the Cook" feature touted by Singapore's website. Was unable to get on site for that purpose. The last try a message appeared (late September) that site was being "rebuilt." On the flight, there was no menu of choices; we were offered 3 vaguely worded choices which boiled down to beef, chicken or vegetables. Those appeared in not particularly appetizing forms and combinations--P.S., we like east and southeast Asian cooking and had just spent 3 weeks in Japan. Failure to provide information about possible delays due to WRG deplaning location at LAX: Although we are frequent fliers to and from LAX, we'd never heard of the WRG. It would have been helpful if the crew had informed us upon arrival that there could possibly be a wait on the plane as buses were used to transport us approximately 1/2 mile to TBIT. Generally: We chose Singapore because of its reputation for excellence. Belying the name of the class, both Turkish AL and Air NZ treated Premium Economy passengers as "junior" business class. Singapore treated us as coach with a roomier cabin and seating pitch."

Pros: "Staff were very attentive and checked in on us regularly to make sure we had everything we needed. Food was great and ammenities kept spotless."

Pros: "Very comfortable"
Cons: "I don’t see anything I didn’t like"

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: "Spacious seats. Lovely food. Wonderful crew. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Interior felt dated given all the awards the SQ has received for its planes and service, but everything was functional. Overlooking the interior, flight was superb. Very happy."

Pros: "Staff friendly and efficient"

Pros: "Second bag was four foot bronze statue, no problem or extra cost"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Singapore Airlines always boast themselves as first class service. That is just bs. At night when I was hungry, I asked the flight attendant for some snack, both a male and a female served at my cabin said, "we don't have that." I expected SQ staff to serve one step further, instead of stopping at a no. Can't you recommend something? Throughout the entire trip, whenever I asked something, the way they answered always made me feel that I was a trouble to them. Is it because I was in an economy class and that's how you treat me? SQ, you may want to change what you are proud of. It's no longer a first class service, at least not to us poor economy class passengers."

Pros: "Good crew, but working with some tired, old equipment."

We paid for a hotel for the night (we should have landed at 1am) and instead landed at 7am, so we had to completely skip our hotel and had no sleep for the wedding the next day. We’re out of $120 for the hotel we already paid for and the staff gave us no help in form of compensation."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They recently started charging unnecessary excess fees for overweight. I traveled from Seattle to Hyderabad via Dubai. I carried my cabin bag from Seattle with weight of 9kgs and purchased few duty free items of 2kgs(2 liquor bottles and1 dates box). They have asked me to pay $150 for excess weight.

Cons: "Booked an aisle seat in early April. Emirates reassigned me a middle seat, this on a 13.25 hour flight! Refused to rebook me back to original even though I showed them my original booking. Never Emirates again! Ever."

Pros: "Emirates is still the best option for travel from Seattle to South Asia. Flight time is convenient and boarding process is flawless as always,"
Cons: "In flight meal service and staff attention is not the same as a few years ago. The fees on advance seat selection is ridiculous. After spending close to two grand on a return ticket, Emirates wants me to spend another 40 bucks each way to heya seat of my choice ?"

Pros: "Comfortable seat"

Pros: "All went fine"

Pros: "I made it to my final destination safely"
Cons: "Not much overhead space for your bags, so we have to keep them at the bottom of our feet....i was travelling with a senior on a wheelchair and the idea of her going up and down the stairs into and out of the airplane wasnt so pleasing...the cabin crew could be easily mistaken for any other passenger becase of dress code..."

Cons: "My baggage was ripped and the material inside was damaged. Never expected that from Emirates."

Pros: "flight was empty so everyone had the chance to experience better treatment from flight attendants."
Cons: "no complaits"

Cons: "Be sure to take your own water bottle with you on this long 14 hour flight. Both directions it seemed that the company approach to beverages was to serve as little as possible, perhaps to keep people out of the bathrooms. But the cabin air was so dry I could barely swallow at times one way drinking only what was provided, but the other way I noticed that my jet lag was greatly reduced when I carried and consumed an extra liter or two above what was provided. At one gate the security crew asked me to dump my water, but I had a small empty bottle with me that I could fill up at the spigot near the bathroom on the plane as needed."

Pros: "Nothing !"
Cons: "Security staff did not know English and asking ladies passengers to remove bangles which was impossible."

Cons: "Was required to check my small roll aboard because I had a backpack, while other passengers were allowed to carry on multiple large items."

Pros: "Great food and entertainment options on this flight. I appreciated that the flight crew asked all passengers to close the window drapes so we could all sleep. The chairs in economy seem to lay back further than other airlines which made it more comfortable."

Pros: "The service, entertainment and food were all excellent."

Pros: "Good overall experience."

Pros: "Great menus, get you all excited. Variety, interesting dishes. Generous with wine and drinks."
Cons: "It's... airline food. Doesn't live up to the promise of the menu. Cooked too long ago, reheated too much, ... I understand that they have constraints, that's what you get when you want to eat in the sky. But I have eaten better food in airplanes, in economy."

Pros: "good."

Pros: "Hospitality and vegetarian food Maintaining the timings"

Pros: "I like that there are multiple bathrooms onboard."
Cons: "The rows are so narrow between seats that your roll on suitcase will not fit. You have no elbow room in your seat. People who live in England are very rude and would not let those of us seated in front of them to deplane. Too bad there isn’t someway to make people wait their turn."

Pros: "The crew was so kind and amazing. They definitely made our flight great!"
Cons: "The entertainment wasn’t working for most of the flight. We only got about an hour and a half of entertainment"

Pros: "Although there were delays they kept us informed on a regular basis as to what to expect and seemed genuinely apologetic for any inconveniences. Boarding and deplaning were smooth and efficient. I really appreciated that there was no charge for checking a bag. I am certain that contributes to the ease of everyone getting on and off the plane. Our bags arrived at baggage claim about the same time we got there. I would definitely fly with Virgin Atlantic again."

Pros: "The crew looked after us well"
Cons: "It was all good"

Pros: "Crew was very attentive...food selection was excellent"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Screens have poor color quality Seat too small Legroom cut into by electronics box Row 45 next to bathroom and no windows"

Pros: "Karl was amazing! So helpful and sweet!"
Cons: "Having the crew tell the guy behind me to plug in his ear phones to watch the video in his phone, rather than me after 20 minutes of noise."

Cons: "Media screens are old and miscalibrated. Selection was decent. Food is probably average for the industry which to me is worse than fast food."

Pros: "I like the professional approach of the airline and the staff. Seats are really comfortable and i did not need my sleeping pillow at all as the headrest of my seat was already so comfortable."
Cons: "There is not much which i did not like about this airline. Just like other airlines, now have started feeling that Economy class travellers are being approached with bit biased approach in hospitality though they have major contribution in meeting flight running expenses. All airlines should start considering this fact and improve the overall approach."

Pros: "The flight itself was good! The one from London to Delhi was better than from JFK to London"
Cons: "I wasn’t told about my baggage were being delivered through different airlines the other day!"

Pros: "Fabulous flight, light on passengers, so excellent service given by the crew. Virgin goes the extra mile on service and little perks. 747-400 planes also very comfortable, compared to the Airbus 320,"
Cons: "Nothing. Trip both ways were outstanding."

Pros: "Virgin Atlantic offers good service at a reasonable price to/from the US to London. Good food service and unbelieveable number of movies and entertainment to choose from."
Cons: "The seating and leg room in economy classic were inadequate. We felt way too confined in our seats and the leg room was a joke. I am only 6' tall and this was unacceptable. We will try to upgrade for the return trip."

Pros: "The ground staff was on top of it and the boarding process was smooth, but the cabin crew was brilliant. I’ve never had such pleasant service on a western airline. Well done. Entertainment system is top-notch, and the food was acceptable."
Cons: "The booking process and paying for luggage is disappointing. Plus, I paid a $90 upgrade and just moved up two rows in the same section. Sneaky."

Pros: "Crew were great"
Cons: "Uncomfortable to sit for eight hours"

Cons: "Incredibly uncomfortable, not enough minimum space to fit my knees behind seat in front when front passenger reclined. 6 hours is too long to have a metal rod sticking straight into your knee caps. Shoulders were squished between other passengers and had to sit twisted the whole way and Im not a large person, but am 6ft. Cabin crew impolite and unhelpful. Food was awful and made my friend sick."

Pros: "Entertainment Meal service and quality"

Pros: "Flight was close to being on time. I was able to get a lot of sleep on the flight."

Pros: "Crew very friendly"
Cons: "Seats and legroom poor if you’re six feet tall"

Pros: "Nothing. The whole experience was horrible."
Cons: "I didn't make it to Siem Reap because the first leg of the trip from IAD to London was cancelled by Virgin Atlantic after it was fully boarded. The excuse was that a flight attendant had food poisoning and was unable to fly and so the entire flight was cancelled. The Virgin team seemed unconcerned and showed NO sense of urgency to try and get people rebooked. Their solution was to rebook everyone on an evening flight the next day. If a passenger was only going to London, that was probably fine. But for people with connecting flights -- or like me with multiple connecting flights -- that wasn't acceptable."

Pros: "Excellent"

Pros: "Flight attendants were excellent!"
Cons: "No indication of where to go to get to connecting flight. Luckily we had 2 1/2 hours to find the flight."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I had to run for almost 2 miles every time I had to change the flight. On the way to India they lost my one bag, and on the way back to US they lost my both begs."

Pros: "The onboard crew were lovely."
Cons: "Stood at check in for over 30 mins with no staff in sight. Boarding was a disaster. Staff was not prepared nor organized and the crowds were unbearable. Upgraded seats were laughable and not worth an extra $60. Food was mediocre. Entertainment would have been good but GE touchscreens are so old, they were difficult to work."

Pros: "Great Service. Truly enjoyed Economy plus!"

Pros: "simple easy boarding. Jumbo 747 is always a nice experience."

Pros: "Reasonably comfortable for a long jet ride. Helpful and considerate flight attendants."
Cons: "The strange windows that kept it looking like night out until 30 minutes before we landed. I prefer the natural light to help readjust my time zones."

Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "My economy window seat was just too cramped for a big guy on a nine hour flight"

Pros: "Hard product and food"
Cons: "Crew need to realise their voices travel and some conversations the whole upper cabin don't need to hear"

Pros: "Aisle/window seating!"
Cons: "My entertainment unit did not work. I was graciously offered an iPad, but declined, however, the picture quality at my son's seat was also iffy. Both my long-haul flights had poor signage for toilets."

Pros: "We were inmiddle seats -not our preference. We were told in Dublin that we had different seats to the ones we ended up in. Food was excellent, crew were very nice. Loved the "make a wish" event on this flight - a definite plus for Virgin."

Pros: "The enforcement of the quiet time to sleep on the flight. The excellent meals. The quality of the entertainment system."

Pros: "The planes are really cool and seats were very comfortable. The part about phone/tablet holder in front of passenger is awesome. Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Vegetarian food selection could be better, need more content in movie selection"

Pros: "Flight okay and staff attentive. Seats still to close together. Had to purchase seat to guarantee not be in middle rows. Plane very warm throughout flight."
Cons: "Selection of entertainment good but touch screen very unresponsive. Hard to change volume and maneuver. Ear sets would not stay connected."

Pros: "Purchased an extra 3" of leg room, which helped tremendously being that my husband & I are both tall. Flight attendants were friendly, helpful & attentative. There were plenty of beverages offered. The food service was adequate. So many options on the media screens on the back of the seats. USB ports were provided on the back of every seat as well."
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "nice new seats"
Cons: "The entre food top was torn, apparently opened before I got it, also there was no salad dressing. ATTN RICHARD BRANSON: Are you concerned for our environment? The head stewardess would not refill my sports water bottle after I asked her nicely, instead she poured water into a cup which she threw away, wasting plastic unnecessarily. I told her I did not like wasting plastic and she appeared to not enjoy what I had to say. This was the same lady who handed me my dinner. Rest of crew was great."

Pros: "Crew is well trained and efficient. Lounge food and service are excellent."
Cons: "Podlike seating in business class. Someone thought the zigzag a way of ensuring privacy. In fact you can't talk to your travel companion nor look out a window. Seats are either up or down and only a crew member can operate them."

Pros: "100% best flight ever"

Cons: "Everyone was delightful during the entire flight."

Cons: "Boarding process was unorganized. Food was mediocre compared to emirates. Video monitor was poorly designed and limited options on movies and languages. Crew is just average compared to other airlines Online checkin and seating choices were difficult to do and not user friendly"

Pros: "The space you have with your legs is sufficient and the chairs are very comfortable. The food was really nice. I enjoyed the trip, although it was a long one."

Pros: "Getting off the stinky airplane...peeyoo!"
Cons: "The three hour delay in departure."

Pros: "Mostly everything was fine."
Cons: "Not really anything particularly that I didn't like."

Pros: "Excellent service. It should be the benchmark for the airline industry."

Pros: "As expected, great customer service from Virgin. Great Vera system. Friendly and welcoming experience."
Cons: "The seats!!!! Omg I got bed sores. Not really but they have got to be the most uncomfortable things I have ever sat in. For a European flight from Uk they'd be fine. But for 9 hours...not good. The short hop down from ATL to MCO after was a blessed relief. Virgin, you have got to think a little more about your passengers asses. Also, having flown with just about every major transatlantic operator, including previous trips with Virgin, the knee room was not good. If you stretched out under the seat in front you were ok but draw your knees up... I wore short trousers for comfort and have sore points on my knees where they rubbed against the material of the chair in front."

Pros: "Very friendly and helpful staff! Food was very good too."
Cons: "More leg room always desirable"

Pros: "Food and beverage choices excellent"

Pros: "Staff excellent - Inflight screen useful."
Cons: "Could not do online Check in - apparently as there were 4 separate legs on my Ticket."

Pros: "Plane was new or newly appointed interior. Bin space very adequate. Lavatory larger than usual. Crew was friendly. Dinner choices good and quality better than norm in American carriers."
Cons: "Snack and breakfast were odd, centered somewhat on dairy products (annoying if lactose intolerant)."

Cons: "I found the seats on this Virgin Atlantic A340 flight from LHR (London Heathrow) to LAX (Los Angeles), an eleven hour flight, to be unacceptable. The seats were very crowded. I am six feet tall, and was very uncomfortable all during the flight. I could not sit with my knees together. I had to spread my knees to sit comfortably. Holding that position for eleven hours was very uncomfortable. Anyone taller than me would have even more trouble. Also, every seat has a very large box underneath, I presume for the audio/video system. This is a terrible location. There is very little room to stow anything. But much worse, I couldn't straighten my right leg. All-in-all, I found the seat situation totally unacceptable. I will likely never fly Virgin Atlantic again because of this."

Pros: "Great service, comfortable and punctual"
