Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The staff was amazing"
Pros: "The help desk employees who helped me rebook my flight."
Cons: "After rushing to catch my connecting Singapore flight, their desks were closed and there wasn’t an employee in site. Given that airlines can see connecting fights it would have been great to have someone stay back to either give me a boarding pass or help me rebook! UNSATISFACTORY!"
Pros: "Friendly service and not a super crowded plane."
Cons: "In-seat entertainment was not working for me, and boarding process could be drastically improved."
Cons: "The person next to me had a distinct body odor."

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: "Everything else"
Cons: "Food was less than marginal"
Pros: "The service was excellent start to finish. I found the movie selection to be excellent on the plane and the food was tasty and above average for airline food, and the seats were comfortable."
Pros: "Space in economy seat was good. Huge selection of movies. Food was tasty. On flights to Frankfurt, Singapore Airlines may want to keep more sparkling water in stock, as Europeans prefer this to still water."
Cons: "There was a smell in the plane when I first arrived like vomit. It may have been the cleaning supplies."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and professional and the amenities were top notch."
Cons: "There wasn't enough leg room. My knees touched the chair in front of me the whole time."

Excellent crew who were always willing to help with my fondness for a beer. Food was as expected and up to the standard of Singapore Airlines. All round it was a long trip made a lot easier......5 stars."
Pros: "I was inpressed"
Pros: "The flight attendants were amazing."
Pros: "Amazing, amazing service! Great food (including Hagen Daaz ice cream) and good choice of beverages. Lots of different entertainment choices. VERY clean and well maintained aircraft. Staff is always friendly and happy...they really seem to absolutely love their job! Free toiletries in the bathrooms are an extra plus. Whenever there was a change in schedule / plans the captain informed the passengers immediately about what was going on and what would happen next."
Cons: "The only thing that did and probably always will be AWFUL is going thru security at JFK. The T S A officials there are unfriendly, sometimes rude, never smiling and often yelling at you or even little kids or elderly people. We are travelling a lot and no other security staff at any given airport is so unfriendly and harsh. Worst thing about going on a journey."

Pros: "There was nothing to complain about..a very friendly staff, departure on time !"
Cons: "No newspapers and magazines on board !"

Pros: "The A380 is an amazing plane. The flight was smooth and the engine sounds were fairly low."
Cons: "Waiting on line to check in was more than a half hour although there were probably only 10 people ahead of me. Got a hard time on the weight of my carry-on being more than 7kg although I had to point out that my ticket allowed me two bags that were 23kg each - I had nothing to check. Eventually, when I pointed out that I could wear enough of the clothes from the carry on, they agreed to let me take it on. On board, the service was cold, bland and infrequent. The entertainment system lost sound perhaps 20 minutes into the flight."
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: "Service from Singapore airlines"
Pros: "Comfort Great book the cook meal choices Restful Attentive service"

Pros: "The choices for entertainment were excellent! I was never bored for a second on my 20++ hours of flight. I love how they gave us in-ear earphones instead of the normal airline headphones that keep on sliding off."
Cons: "It was quite difficult for me to get comfortable. Maybe it's due to my shortness, I can't really rest my head that well"
Pros: "My luggage was lost, due to an error of another airline. but singapore air took care of it and made sure i got the luggage in Germany - even though it involved bringing it to me to remote location 2.5 hour drive from frankfurt. free of charge. Thanks Singapore airlines!"
Pros: "From the beginning until the end the service, the vibe, the flight itself was amazing. I don't know any other airline I flew with so far that hosted me and all other flyers better. At any time I was supported by the staff and even if it was busy they constantly had a kindness and smile in their face. I don't fly with any other airline on long distance flights! It was clean and neat on top at any time. I love flying with Singapore airlines. I feel safe and in good hands all around. This is how service should be at any airline! It is never less good but a constant since years! Thank you"

The comfort of the chairs recline and foot rest that raised up was great. The big tray table that tucked away was nice. And side pockets for your stuff was great. The comfort of the bigger seats was just excellent and they looked newer. On my flight back from Frankfurt to NYC that was the best flight I ever have taken."
Cons: "The only thing was the food wasn't the best. But I did have Ice cream and that was good. The rice was good and beverages was good. The rest wasn't the best."
Pros: "Had to get new boarding passes at JFK eventhough issued passes at Rochester without gate numbers but was then able to check that my bags were transferred to SIA."

Pros: "the food on eva was better than delta and united--definitely edible unlike the others. the stewardesses are a little bit stingy with the wine. they give such tiny tiny portions-like 2 ounces at a time--they said i might get drunk. no one can get drunk with what they give. the stewardesses are polite enough. the entertainment was pretty good--good choice of movies. like all other airlines, the seats are too squished together. more room would have been appreciated."

Cons: "- seat space is tiny, and I'm 6'2" - plane was full to the brim - in-seat TV was annoying: either you paid for something, or it kept turning on and showing advertising - engine noise was terrible.

Pros: "seat crew food entertainment"
Cons: "no wifi"
Pros: "Everything, space seat"
Pros: "Purchased an exit row aisle seat - all the leg room I could ask for. Close to toilets - no odor issues. Good meals. Staff basically courteous (though not unfailingly - occasionally a tad blunt and titchy - a common experience for me on Air NZ)."
Cons: "Air NZ website states exit row seating purchase comes with priority boarding. When I asked about this at the gate counter I was told I would be seated by row number.

Cons: "It was a long flight, frequent offers of snacks and drinks would’ve been great."

Cons: "my flight from Boston to Doha was deleyed and Qatar Airways have no arrangements for the passengers at the airport, I spent more then 15 hours in the transit on those chairs, there was no help provided by the airline"
Pros: "just enough time in Doha between flights. Not too long not too short!"
Cons: "Asian vegetarian food can be of better quality."
Pros: "good service, good food"
Cons: "staff could be more cheerful towards travellers"
Cons: "My 17 yr old son is stranded in Doha because Qatar cancelled his connection to Nairobi which is unprofessional and terribly worrisome . I, his mother, am in Greece with no way ofhelping him get to Kenya. Qatar offers no restitution and no help . The worst situation right now!"
Pros: "the flight was smooth, comfortable and a lot faster than DOHA - BOSTON."
Cons: "I could not check myself online! so i could not select the best seat."
Pros: "Staffs were helpful!"
Cons: "Food portion can be improved."
Pros: "Very helpful staff both ways, an experience that we rarely see in major airlines these days. We will definitely fly Qatar airways again."
Pros: "Comfort and cleanliness."
Pros: "Service offered by crew, arranged veg food when found not listed. Boston to Doha veg food loading needs improvement."
Cons: "Wait time at Doha for next flight."
Cons: "They arbitrarily switched the flight one hour ahead of schedule, with no notice so half the passengers ended up missing it."
Pros: "Crew, food."
Cons: "Lack of communication. Flight was two hours late from Boston to Doha. Not once were we told about the length of delay or what we need to do about connecting flights. And toilets were very smelly right from the start as it seemed that itinerary has seeped into the floor over time. And there were only two items as a main course and one of them in very small quantity. I was told that too many veg main courses were loaded by mistake and very few non veg."
Pros: "Comfortable, attractive, nice music, good food, nice crew, on time, easy takeoff and landing! What else could you ask for? ;-)"
Cons: "On the second leg, my first choice option was not available. Instead I was offered what appeared to be a lurid pink yogurt, coupled with fluorescent orange 'juice', together with the Indian vegetarian option. The accompanying 'muffin' appeared to consist of the following ingredients: flour, oil. Suffers from the "African flight's don't matter" syndrome when it comes to level of staff and entertainment. I was expecting better from Qatar - back to Emirates I go!"
Pros: "I like that the air stewards bring you water and drinks throughout and don't judge you for being too thirsty. I like that they respect that it is a night flight and serve the meal quickly so it can be dark for the whole flight and you can sleep as much as you can. I like how efficient the layover is in Doha - only 40mins!"
Cons: "I don't like when they don't ask the person in front to move their chair up for the meal and the passengers have to ask each other. I don't like that they can't tell you the gate of your connecting flight and how long it will take to get you there - including if you will need to take a bus and the train. I think this could reduce a lot of anxiety. If they could do this, it would also be helpful to let people who have a connecting flight that is boarding in the next 30 mins off the plane first. This would save pushing and shoving in the aisles... and would also reduce anxiety about booking a flight with such a short layover."
Pros: "It was my first time traveling on business class and I had an amazing experience, friendly and helpful crew, they always made sure that I was doing fine and if I needed anything or any help. Healthy options on they food menu and delicious food and beverages. I am looking forward to traveling with Qatar airways again in the future."
Cons: "Would prefer more options on they entertainment menu."
Pros: "Food, service, staff at the counter"
Cons: "Cant think of any"
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: "The flight was short but the plane was well maintained and the crew was accommodating."
Cons: "The boarding process started too early and some of the passengers were annoying as they jump over you because they were not directed to the correct aisle."
Pros: "The flight was good. But daily they are delayed and the passengers had to miss the connecting flight."
Cons: "We should have been told in Boston that we need visa to Australia, not an hour and a half before the flight"
Pros: "An entirely unexceptional airline that provides zero amenities for such a long flight."
Cons: "Charge me $20 more a seat and provide a meal and in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "The flight attendants were great, the plane was very clean and comfortable,"
Pros: "Everything was fine in general."
Cons: "Turbulance but pilot did not addeess it by saying he would change altitude to avoid it."
Cons: "Almost everything on the in flight entertainment system cost money and the screen was not very responsive."
Pros: "Overall, the service of Hawaiian Airlines was a 5 star experience. The crew, the in-flight services were amazing. The 6 hour journey from LA was one of its kind. I was welcomed with soulful Hawaiian music while boarding :) I was amazed to see the captain greeting and thanking the passengers at then door while exiting the aircraft. Makes every passenger feel special. I am glad I chose to fly Hawaiian."
Pros: "Great customer service. We brought our 1 year old and was treated with so much care. Made it so easy for us to travel"
Pros: "Friendly helpful staff; smooth flight, served a meal!!! Great movie selections"
Cons: "Tight seats."
Cons: "The tickets I got thru kayak lost the seat reservation. My family sat away from me for both flights. The tickets I purchased directly worked out fine. Won't be using kayak anymore."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and they did provide one complimentary meal."
Cons: "There wasn't really much space and the flight provided no entertainment. I had to pay 8$ for a entertainment package, I also had to pay to check a bag and was not informed of this until I got to the airport. Overall the price does not match the quality you are getting."
Cons: "That we were so late, missed connection flight."
Pros: "I like that they feed you and give you more room. They also have competitive deals"
Pros: "I loved this airline. The crew is definitely Aloha Spirit minded with Fierce resolve and great food, on time boarding and landing and I got the best blanket from Moana Mahalo, Linda"
Pros: "Hawaiian granted me an isle seat hat I requested after purchasing the ticket. I also appreciated the meal that was provided at no cost."
Cons: "I would have liked an "oldies" channel on the music program. I'm 70. (:"
Pros: "All services are great!"
Cons: "Too cold."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "There were no free movies on a flight that Lateef over 5 hours. That's ridiculous."
Pros: "Flight to and from were on time. Good service was enjoyed."
Pros: "Virgin airline carrier, Comfortable and cost flight"
Cons: "Staff a little unfriendly"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 30 minutes while they were playing musical chairs trying to seat a snarky couple together"
Pros: "Besides the poor food (but free!) and one grumpy stewardess, the flight was actually fantastic. One of the better flights I've had in a long time, and I fly a lot. Check in, boarding, and general smoothness of the flight was great in comparison to other domestic airlines. Will always fly Hawaiian if the prices stay affordable!"
Pros: "Comfortable chair, complementary food service"
Cons: "The screen for my seat did not work"
Pros: "Nice touch with breakfast crew was very pleasant. Aloha!"
Cons: "The only free content was Hawaiian airlines sponsored documentaries. The touch screen was hard to control and frustrating"
Cons: "The cabin temperature was unbearably cold. We asked for a blanket and they said they had blankets for purchase. We agreed to purchase because it was that cold. The flight attendant returned and told us that they were completely sold out. It was a very uncomfortable flight."
Pros: "The complimentary breakfast and complimentary island rum drink just before landing were a pleasant and very welcomed surprise. It was, overall, a great flight. Purchasing the extra leg room and pre TSA screening is a must!"
Cons: "The only negative were all the screaming babies. I know it can't be helped but jeeeez! I had little tykes at one time but now that they are grown, it's difficult to maintain patience for five hours. Too bad a "child zone" area at the back of the plane couldn't be designated for the weary parents. Perhaps have certain rows just for families with small children where they don't have to be so worried about bothering other passengers. Maybe an area where babies could be "walked and rocked". Probably not feasible but just a thought for an airline that services the whole spectrum of age groups heading to Paradise."
Pros: "It was easy."
Cons: "Still have to pay for entertainment"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice"
Cons: "My charging station didn't work. I felt smashed from all sides."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "No movies - too cod in the cabin"
Pros: "Comfortable with good service"
Pros: "No entertainment on the flight, not even tablets to rent. Enjoyed the free drink!"
Cons: "Food was borderline"
Pros: "The flight was great."
Cons: "I had to run from one end of the airport to the other. The boarding crew in Hawaii were a bit bossy."
Pros: "Ground staff and on board staff were efficient and friendly."
Cons: "Cold temps on the flight. Glad I had my own jacket and blanket. The seats are hard and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Food with wine is fantastic"
Cons: "Entertainment system touch screen is just not very responsive. Always have trouble with that. Could it get an aisle seat and was stuck by a coughing though admittedly adorable little girl. Not all Hawaiians fault but not a comfortable trip."
Pros: "Legroom I upgraded for"
Cons: "Seats are very narrow and most uncomfortable"
Cons: "Unfriendly stewards. Not one of them offered service with a smile"
Pros: "Very easy çheckin. Terrific flight attendant service."
Cons: "Boarding kind of got jammed up at the gate."
Pros: "Nice job"
Pros: "I had 2 open seats next to me!!!"
Cons: "Felt like I was at a baseball game. So many interruptions, more than any other airline and flight attendants actually walked down the aisle saying, "popcorn, blankets, headphones for sale!""
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and boarding was quick"
Cons: "The crew kept assuming I was with the passenger next to me despite repeatedly correcting them and was skipped numerous times for water, collection of survey etc. It is the most expensive entertainment I have experienced on an airline, especially for such a long flight. The meal could have been substituted for any type of legitimate entertainment option."
Pros: "I'm time"
Cons: "Too cold Food bad No free blankets.. Had to keep ordering hot water to keep my hands warm Stewardess spilled cold water on me No free movies"
Pros: "Pleasantly surprised by breakfast. It was fabulous!"
Pros: "Food, comfort, crew"
Cons: "Annoyingly long non-safety videos that couldn't be turned off"
Pros: "The seats were comfy and the free meal was great. Too bad I wasn't informed that I would receive a free meal prior; I hurriedly ate a terrible meal in my terminal before boarding. Perhaps that's my fault for not researching the airline, and maybe that oversight is on Kayak (I booked through kayak and their email communication to me was very sparse)."
Cons: "The entertainment options were seriously lacking."
Pros: "The attention was fast"
Cons: "That all have to be paid"
Cons: "Too cold for me in the cabin such that I was forced to buy a blanket."
Pros: "The serene feeling of already feeling like you are in Hawaii the lights, the music playing when we got on board and the seat space very comfortable"
Pros: "It was a great flight. The flight attendants were nice and attentive. I have bragged to my family about both of my flights and were all convinced that we'll fly with Hawaiian Airlines."
Pros: "Comfort, staff, food, entertainment, fast baggage delivery and gate location in Maui. Looking forward to lie flat seats on their widebodies!"
Pros: "The flight would have been perfect Except for the crying baby loclomg my chair and screaming at the top of his lungs for more than half of the flight I realize it is out of anyone's control bit possibly the airlines could offer free ear phones and comp movies to help drown out the crying and screaming Would it be possible to assign families with small children to the back of the plane? That way the noise would be kept as far away as possible"
Pros: "They turn the air up, freeze you, extort money from passengers for a 'souvenir' blanket! Had to cover myself with newspaper to stay warm."
