I get really anxious with flying and traveling in general and was so eased just by their friendliness and organization. Thank you! I also forgot to write a review but my flight from San Diego to Tokyo on June 27 was also amazing. I was really stressed out over some logistics of my trip and the people at the gate in San Diego were so helpful!"
Pros: "I didn't expect neck pillow on board"
Cons: "Seat wilder would be great"
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."

Pros: "Friendly and respectful staff, great meals, tasty!"
Pros: "I have gotten used to long flights on various American airlines where it seems the staff do the minimal amount. Service is so incredibly better on Japan Airlines.

I loved the media options."
Cons: "It has been a while but the food was not as good as I remembered from way back when, or maybe that was Korean Air? It was, however, hot when it should be hot and cold when it should be cold."

Pros: "Clean :)"

Cons: "Nothing to dislike."
Pros: "easy check in."
Cons: "can't choose my own seats."
Pros: "It was short."
Cons: "Two key issues: 1. Split up seating 2. Required to pick up and check baggage with limited time due to customs check. 1. They split up all four of our seats (despite booking more than 30 days in advance). Our seven (7) year old daughter was by her self. So was our fifteen (15) year old son. When we addressed it to baggage check (part of major issue number 2), they put two seats together, across an aisle, with both children in them. We obviously just sat one of the adults with the seven year old. This was not just us. SEVERAL families had children seated alone and spread all over the plane. ANA needs to require grouped seating for children under thirteen (13) years old with an adult. 2. Tokyo Haneda is the only airport I can think of where I have to pick up and check baggage again just to clear customs. The flights were 1 hour and 45 minutes apart. With nearly an hour dedicated to getting baggage claimed and getting through customs, we barely had time to fix two of our split seats (see issue 1) and rush via a free bus route that took 6 minutes (luckily we were first stop) to get us to domestic terminal 2. We were then lucky again because we made it through security quickly and our gate happened to be right next to the security check we chose. Another side piece: Haneda Domestic Terminal 2 has four security check areas (A-D). We saw no identifying marks indicating which were closest to which gate. Our bags have already been through a bag check process. Feel free to run them through security scans. Don’t make us wait to collect them just to walk them through the customs desk and check them again."
Cons: "The fact I had to come back to Canada from Japan. Canada is ghetto."
Pros: "Staff are super kind."
Pros: "Crews' performance was good."
Cons: "Full capacity ! Because of CODE SHARING ? = One Airplane for 2-Airline's Customers."

Pros: "The comfort and caring staff"
Cons: "Food serve a bit slow with the no of pax and long queue for the washroom"
Pros: "In general it was all very good - I flew Premium Economy but I didn’t see much difference at all between that and Economy.

Pros: "I liked the food that was provided and the range of entertainment is up to date anencephaly plentiful, spoiling you for choice. The flight crew were very friendly and prompt to serve which was amazing"
Pros: "Cabin crew was top notch - even in coach they could not be more accommodating and customer friendly. US airline flight attendants don’t even come close to this team that truly serviced the cabin for 8 hours continuously without the typical hiding in the back of the plane and chatting. Very encouraging that genuine care in the air is very much alive and well on Singapore Air! I will fly them every chance I get!"
Cons: "That my flight had to end and I know my next US airline flight won’t come close to this kind of experience! Air travel doesn’t have to be a cattle herding process with peanut treats on cross country flights - shame on the US carriers - I strongly suggest they fly Singapore Air to see what true customer service feels like!"
Cons: "Flight attendants were bot friendly, appearwd to be botheted when askes questions or requests were made."
Pros: "Very attentive, great food, quality aircraft"

Pros: "The cabin crew was awesome.. they are for sure the super stars of the company... I wish all of them all the very best for a very bright future"
Cons: "The service of the airlines is impeccable. But the ground staff near check in were not so. I hope they were a little considerate as I was travelling for a family emergency and had to take all my stuff back as I wasn’t sure what date I would return back. I was over weight but wish they had considered a lil as had to pay an other $300 extra.."
Pros: "I like everything about Singapore airline service."
Cons: "Crew woke me up from deep sleep to raise seatback for meal service. Sleep versus food?? Should prioritise sleep every time on night flights."
Cons: "My flight was delayed by 2 hours so I missed my connecting flight in Singapore. There was a huge queue of people who missed their connecting flight cos of an accident in the runway. The airline did nothing to prepare for this situation. It took hours to get another flight organised, communication was non existent and refreshments took ages to come. Airline didn't help with finding a hotel for stranded passengers."
Pros: "Liked the service"
Cons: "Nothing special."
Cons: "Mediocre food, lousy entertainment system that belongs to the last decade. Singapore Airlines has not been the premium carrier it was a decade ago and is now simply a so-so airline charging exorbitant fares."

Cons: "Nothing bad to say about this flight. Great airline."
Pros: "Food was ok"
Cons: "Entertainment system are old age and poor quality TFT screen"
Pros: "To be honest I had a pretty bad flight because my allergies exploded during the entire flight - constant sneezing, runny nose, you name it. However, the attentiveness of the crew really made up for it. The cabin was decorated with tiny wreathes (so cute!), and the pillow/blanket was very comfortable/warm for an Economy seat. Although I did not use it as much, the entertainment seemed top-notch. And the crew-- they noticed that I was not feeling well, and offered me peppermint tea and snacks that did sooth things a bit (you can request for snack/beverage refills anytime!). I loved that they gave out black socks to the passengers too (I prefer taking my shoes off during the flight, so the socks added warmth & prevented my own socks from getting dirty). All in all, it was one of the best-serviced long flights I had, not to mention probably the most affordable price I paid for my annual trip to Korea (from LA)."
Pros: "The attendants are pleasant to the eye, thats about it."
Cons: "I heard so many good things and was left disappointed. The service from staff try to help and be nice but some of them do not care at all, things like too busy to bring a beverage etc was a tad annoying. dont know if i will use them again"
Pros: "Efficient, courteous and attractive crew. Good food and drink selection and great entertainment system with large screens."
Pros: "Overall service, good leg space."
Cons: "We were seated in the same section with four babies."
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant!"

Pros: "It's good that they have vegeterian options"
Cons: "Indian food was stale"

Pros: "Extremely polite flight crew"
Cons: "-The food was pretty bad -Not much leg room"
Cons: "The crew members is not very detail oriented. Almost forgot to give our whole row of people without dinner. Don't they remember where they left off sheesh. I work at a hotel before and customer service all my life, I don't think I will make that mistake."
Pros: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "Nice aircraft - A380, so comfortable seats. Good staff and service. In flight entertainment is also very good."
Cons: "At Sydney airport the line for bag drop was longer than regular check in for economy. The ground staff waited till an hour before boarding to speed things up despite numerous passengers alerting them to this. The bag drop took 1 hour even though I had checked in online. The food was sub par because I had chosen a no seafood meal. Lamb chops without sauce as well as a very poor steak, again without any sauces."
Pros: "The crew, food and boarding process was good."
Cons: "I paid $21k for 3 return flights from Melbourne to Mumbai. I usually fly Malaysia Airlines and it costs us about $13k. I paid more this time for Singapore Air because I thought it might be more comfortable and I really thought they'd have flat beds to sleep. But they had the same angular seats like Malaysian Airlines. There was no point in paying the extra money."
Pros: "Qatar Airways ground staff and cabin crew were excellent throughout the journey. The cleanliness and comfort of the plane was also fantastic."

Pros: "Great crew, great customer service by phone, great food and entertainment."
Cons: "Boarding and deplaning took ages, but don't they always?"
Pros: "The service is really good. The only downside is that you have to be in Doha. But it’s always nice to leave Doha."
Cons: "The push button entertainment system doesn’t work well. You have to keep pressing buttons to make a movie play. And by pressing buttons, I mean, you have to hit the screen and wake up the person whose head is on the other side of the headrest."
Pros: "Very friendly crew, good space in my seat, kept the plane dark and quiet for the overnight flight"
Pros: "The airline was helpful even though the flight was delayed"
Pros: "New plane and Q suite was excellent"

Pros: "Excellent service. Excellent quality of food."
Pros: "If you upgrade...it’s pricey but man doesn’t it look nice. Their regular seats are great. Get an emergency seat. Food isn’t kosher and tastes good. Never one complaint with these guys!"
Cons: "If I had to pick one thing...it’s that their free WiFi is only on select planes...not all. Sorry nothing else to dislike."
Cons: "I had been told my checkin bags will be available at final destination but I had to pick them up at Delhi and do the checking in once more which was a lot of hassle with kids"
Pros: "Excellent friendly service"
Pros: "Dedicated to customer service"
Pros: "Boarding from Doha and service in doha."

Cons: "The food ,however, was disappointing again."
Pros: "Not much really."
Cons: "The air craft was old, I was sitting on the exit row and the screen was loose and the window on the exit row was leaking. The food was bad and the service was poor. The flight attendant kept on forcing things on me rather than asking me what I wanted."

Pros: "service, cleanliness"
Cons: "seats too narrow, but understandable"
Cons: "My screen was not working."
Pros: "First of all, I want to preface this by saying that virtually every airline is better than the major ones working in the US (American, United, and Delta), and Qatar Airways is amongst this number. The entertainment selection was excellent, the best of any flight I've ever been on. The flight attendants were excellent, again, much better than those on American carriers (I am American, FYI)."
Cons: "The food was terrible. Of course, we know this about airline food, BUT I have been on Qatar Airways flights with GOOD food in the past, so I know it can be better. Also, I sat in the baby section, which also happens to be where they put long-legged people. This is no one's fault, but suffice to say, do NOT sit next to 4 5-month olds for a 15-hr flight! Interestingly, since all flight attendants were women, about 50% of the flight did listen to them since there were many conservative Arabs onboard from Qatar or Saudi Arabia (i.e., those who are taught not to listen to or respect women). This made for some frustrating sites to witness but it's obviously not the airline's fault. Poor women!"
Pros: "The entertainment options."
Cons: "I didn't have any complaints. I thought everything went very well."
Pros: "Excellent service and in time flights."
Pros: "-Great selection of movies, Ted talks, and games to view on individual screens, headphones were provided. - Blankets and pillows were provided to everyone, along with a kit with toothbrush, toothpaste, socks, and eye mask. - Adjustable head rest."
Cons: "- Tiny, cramped seats and aisles. I'd heard the Quatar has more leg room than other airlines. This is definitely not true. If the person in front of me reclined all the way, they crushed my knees and I'm only 5'7". - Bathrooms were dirty by 4 hours into the 14 hour flight. Sinks clogged, garbage can overflowing. Not just one bathroom. Gross. - Worst flight attendant service I've ever had, and I don't expect much since I've traveled a lot. Service was rushed, coffee cart for our side of plane never arrived, when I walked to the back to ask for some, they couldn't find the milk and made a fuss about looking for sugar. Lots of similar examples throughout the flight. - The baggage claim carousel number never appeared on the screens at IAD after landing. Other flights showed but not Quatar. We waited a while then walked around to check them all until we found the right carousel. Never seen this happen before. - One of our bags never appeared, so we waited until all luggage had come out and checked with the counter. They found our bag somewhere and brought it over after a 20 minute wait. No explanation given. Good thing we'd counted bags."
Pros: "Crew was exceptional and in-flight entertainment options superb. Meals were well apportioned and delicious."
Cons: "Seats were a little narrow, especially the middle ones but to be expected when flying economy."
Cons: "no one came to help even after asking for assistance"

Pros: "The crew were nice"
Cons: "The screen of my seat and my mom ( sitting next to me) and the lady near the window stopped working after launching and we had to stair in the dark for eleven hours the flight attendant tried but couldn't fix it. The seat itself was broken and I had to put the bottom Cushing back every time I stand up.the cue to the rest room ( one off them has a broken lock so you can't lock it ) was very long and I had to wait for 25 minutes tell I got in ( the first time I waited too long standing in an air plane )"
Pros: "Once I made it to my seat, easily slipped back into a meditative trance."
Cons: "Unannounced delays. Waited in a line, then another one. Probably just different security protocol than I'm used to."
Pros: "Excellent customer service"
Pros: "The staff was friendly throughout and boarding was quick. There were no delays in taking off. They had also helped organize a hotel for the long layover including meal vouchers, visa, and return transfers."
Cons: "During meal times they didn't ask the person ahead of me to put their seat up which made it difficult to eat. They also ran out of quite a few meal options on the various flights I took."
Pros: "The airport in Doha is beautiful with great amenities and shopping. The quiet rooms are especially nice for a long layover."
Cons: "The ticket was cheap because of very long layovers"

Pros: "Food is amazing, planes are good."
Cons: "The boarding crew at the gate did not say anything while weighing the carry on bag. I was ask to go to another person who issued me check in baggage sticker and told me to hand over your baggage to a person inside. At last he mentioned to not put any valuables in that bag. My carry on bag was just 1lb extra and the first person could have told me right away and I would have thrown away chocolates and brought down the weight to permissible limit. In general passenger do carry valuable stuff in carry on bag. I had to follow whatever I was told."
Pros: "Crew was good"

Pros: "Overall a decent flight."
Cons: "Didn’t like the boarding experience. You have somebody look at the boarding pass but then they sent us to a waiting area. The waiting/boarding area didn’t have space to make nice lines fir boarding so it was pretty haphazardly organized. You really can do better."
Cons: "Main problems at Dubai airport. Employee at the airport charged me money for the same luggage that Newark employees said it is according to air line rules. That shocked me. I didn’t buy anything from Dubai. I think it’s not right."

Pros: "Emirates flight was fine. Problem was booking a South African Airways codebase flight on Kayak. Neither SAA or Emerates were able to look up our booking reference and so we did not get seat assignments until the airport."
Cons: "Codebase flights and no one looking as us as customers."
Cons: "Both the flights were delayed. No accommodation was offered. With two little kids we planned and even payed more to travel with this airline. Overall, experience was big disappointment. Our expectations were much higher than what we experienced."

Cons: "15-hour flight not happy thing to be mid-air."
Cons: "Kayak booked the ticket through flight network and when we reached airport the airline staff was not able to find the ticket. The flight was missed in trying to find what went wrong and when called the flight network they told that due to insufficient time between booking and departure time they canceled the reservation. No message was sent for cancelation and it caused a lot of troubles and grief to all involved."

Pros: "Food was good and not over salted like most airplane foods"
Cons: "Need more recently released US movies Options are so few Not enough African movie either"

Pros: "Overall the experience was good! The Emirates team are thorough professionals."
Cons: "When we have connecting flights to other destinations, there should be a minimum time gap of 2 hours. We had only 1 hour and 25 minutes at Dubai to catch our India flight and our in New York started late by nearly an hour....worrying us! Though the delay was made good during the NY Dubai flight, there was no assurance from the Captain about this when we left NY....and we were doing calculations throughout the 14 hour flight!"
Cons: "The bus ride took over 10 mins. Why are flights to South Asia and other developing countries not given boarding via the bridge? Horribly long bus ride at DXB for flight to DEL."

Cons: "Seat space was very tight, and my seat was broken (would not recline). Also, a toddler screamed for over 6 hours straight with no intervention from the parents or crew."
Cons: "nothing it was perfect"
Pros: "Emirates has a great reputation, and now I've experienced first hand why that is! Great (complimentary!) food and beverages, clean comfortable seats, generous luggage policies, and impressive customer service. The crew on our flight represented 19 different countries and spoke a total of 19 different different languages. The woman ahead of me was very unpleasant about her screen not working, and every attendant she spoke to was infinitely polite and pleasant. They tried to reset her screen, and eventually found an empty seat and moved her to first class!"
Cons: "Only that I can't take an Emirates airbus for all of my flights! I was detained for awhile during boarding because I was chosen to have my carry-on bag checked, and it took awhile because I had filled a water bottle after passing through security and it took some discussion before being approved (my husband didn't know where I was and had already boarded and was worried)."
