Cons: "The flat bed is not comfotable needed help from attendanr all the time felt like i was constricted"
Pros: "The plane was new. The in flight entertainment system was good, although I never got to experience it fully because the Flight attendant kept switching it off, as I had paid extra (an arm and a leg) for a “bulkhead seat”"
Cons: "The service was beyond awful! The Flight Attendants had a “could care less” attitude. I had special ordered a meal, and they gave me the wrong one. I did not want to make a big deal, so I just ate it. Then they did not offer any beverages when the meal came! I literally had to beg them to make me their famous “Singapore sling”. Shocking really!!. When I had my coffee, my request for cream and sugar went ignored THREE times. Finally they grudgingly gave me only cream, rendering my coffee undrinkable. .....And the list goes on. Never ever will I travel on this horrid airline again!"

Cons: "Seats in economic class are not too contraint in space, food was good and entertainment system quite nice with large si play screen and large movie selection"
Pros: "The service from the Singapore Airlines is always impeccable. The food is delicious. The business class seat is spacious and wider than all the US airlines. There are plenty storage space in your seat space. The entertainment system has many choices and has a lot new release movies and shows."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the ride on Boeing 777 is not as smooth as the Airbus'. The noise in the cabin is louder. The seat is comfortable but the bed is not. First, the flat bed is not transformed by a button and it needs a physical person to flip it over. The mat is thin and I can feel some hard edges while lying down. The noise from the engine transmits to the bed and it is hard to sleep even with the noise cancellation headphone."
Pros: "Service and food"
Pros: "The service crew served us well. They are friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Too many Indian movies"
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: "too long a flight 17 hours from SFO to Singapore"
Cons: "Foods serving were too slow for economy class. Not enough selections for entertainment."
Pros: "Entertainment even in economy class was excellent -- tons of movies, games, etc. Cabin crew were friendly. Bathroom was very large."
Cons: "In economy, seating was incredibly tight (very little legroom) and at least in my seat, very little reclining. For a 14 hour flight through the night, it made it very difficult to actually get any rest. Food was OK."
Pros: "Like the food"

Pros: "Overall service, good leg space."
Cons: "We were seated in the same section with four babies."
Cons: "They reschudle my flight beaucase I have anxiety. It's my birthday today. I'm suppose to be in China celebrating me and my grandma's birthday right now. Apparently anxiety is something that Singapore airline are very concerned about me, that needs a doctor note to prove that I'm okey to fly. poor coummcation skill and power play"
Cons: "It is really good experience. All the flight attendants are good"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Such incredible staff. Always Willing to go above and beyond! I flew 17 hours with them and they made the flight a breeze. Great airline, will be flying with Singapore again"
Cons: "Really nothing. I loved flying with them."
Pros: "Crew, plane, punctuality"
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Kids' meal didn't have fruits. No cellphone charger."
Pros: "Had good experience on Bangalore sfo return journey. In particular your ground staff and aboard the flight were so warm and receptive. Only thing is that seating in the economy class could a little more better. Thnx SA"
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: "great service. new plane. excellent video system."
Cons: "not much to complain about."
Pros: "Singapore Airlines is my new airline, forget about any other airlines. They have very beautiful service and entertainment. Their staff and one of the best crews ever. I really love it."
Pros: "Excellent service, food, in-flight entertainment (what choices!!), and the plane was very up to date as well. Made for a very very pleasant flight experience. Especially for how long the flight was (18 hours or so)"
Cons: "The get out and get back in halt at Hong Kong. Practically the entire flight had to do this, quite wasteful. Bad customer experience. Find a better way please! If Hong Kong makes you do that switch over to another airport, better yet make no halt. I have flown direct from SF to Singapore before so not sure why this halt."
Cons: "Breakfast was pathetic. Not fresh. For 16 hours flight only two meals were served and no snacks were provided"
Cons: "I have no complaint"
Cons: "Cabin too hot"
Pros: "I loved the movie selection and the food options."
Cons: "The woman behind me kept insisting that I keep my chair in the upright position. With two crying babies on the plane, I was trying to relax and sleep as much as possible on the 12.5 hr flight. What bothered me even more is that when the woman asked the flight attendant to tell me to put my seat up, the flight attendant complied instead of telling the woman it was my seat to do as I wished. Why make the seats recline if they are going to bother the people behind? Why tell me to put my seat up if it was not a requirement for all (ie during take off or landing)? I did not appreciate this and it made my flight extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "Just as previous reviews mentioned, this is a top notch airline even when flying coach. The staff was courteous and attentive, the food was good and the flight overall was comfortable. I'd fly with Singapore again in a heartbeat."
Pros: "I like your new entertainment devices and big screen"
Cons: "the number of movies is a little bit less. the category of videos is not clear."
Pros: "crew and service and food was excellent MJ from local staff went above and beyond to assist when i missed my connection she was kind, compassionate and efficient A+++++++"
Cons: "missed connection in Seoul. announcements should be louder, was in rest room opp the gate and did not hear any announcements for boarding text message should be sent if passenger missing."
Cons: "delay for 2 hours without notice"
Pros: "The flight took off 10 minutes earlier and landed about 30 minutes earlier. I ordered seafood meals and the food was delicious and the service was excellent. The movies and flight info on the screen were very easy to operate."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and the service vert good."
Cons: "The food had room for improvement."
Cons: "Great that they served two warm meals without extra charge? But the meals were quite bland, with little imagination."

Pros: "I really enjoyed the food as always and overall, I felt very comfortable"
Cons: "I enjoyed my experience overall."
Pros: "Crew was great, plane was modern and clean"
Cons: "We booked row 2 to be a quick entry/exit but they board this plane from the rear. No entertainment, so bring your own"
Pros: "Entertainment and service was outstanding."
Cons: "I could have used more leg room."
Cons: "It was the shortest flight of my itinerary. My last flight home. We sat on the plane for nearly 45 minutes before take off and it was late getting home. Totally ridiculous. Every flight in and out of Eugene is ridiculous like that"
Pros: "Premium economy is the way to go. So much more comfortable."
Cons: "This flight was close to perfect. Boarding process at the gate was a bit hectic, but manageable."
Pros: "Wonderful crew, excellent food, very comfortable!"
Pros: "Best flight I’ve been on"
Pros: "Upgrading to Skycoach giving extra leg room was well worth it."
Pros: "crew was nice, seating was fine."

Pros: "The seat was spacious and the crew was very nice!"
Pros: "Crew did a very good job"
Cons: "Trip was the roughest I have ever been on for virtually the entire time. Could not sleep. Business class cabin was also had the most noise of any front of airplane experience I have had."
Cons: "economy has NO room, couldnt bend down to get anything out of my bag below the seat unless my face was in the lap of the person next to me"
Pros: "The attendants were very attentive"
Cons: "One of the poorest meals I have had in 50 years of flying do not like the seating configuration in business class"
Cons: "One of the flight personnel I felt was very rude"
Cons: "5 hours late. Had to go to work on 2 hours sleep"
Cons: "Seats too small."
Cons: "Not clear that I wouldn't be able to check a bag for my return flight. I flew to New Zealand with a large bag and then when I went to check in for my return flight they told me I couldn't check it to bring it back and my only option was to cargo it, which was not helpful being that the cargo was out of the airport and I needed to catch my flight. I was luckily able to check it on a separate flight my boyfriend was going on. But I would have either have had to leave my bag or miss my flight if he hadn't been there. It should have been more apparent that I wouldn't have been able to check it on the way back. It makes no sense to be able to bring a bag to New Zealand and not bring it back. That was very frustrating and overall I was very disappointed with this experience."
Pros: "I love the entertainment system. The airline attendants uniforms are very colourful."
Cons: "Please check your visa requirements is your flight is just a stopover in NZ to AUS (or elsewhere) as I could not return due to unfair transit visa issues in NZ. Have to book another one way flight and pay. completely nuts. I was not warned anywhere till I reached the airport."
Pros: "Solid friendly n professional flight crew."
Cons: "When checking in we asked about an exit row seat. The NZ official claimed the flight was full n nothing available. Once on the 2/3 full plane, 9 of the 12 exit row seats were empty. Bottom line was she was lazy and unprofessional in simply Lieing."
Cons: "That is didn’t happen until the next day"
Pros: "Food vegan was good on all sectors"
Cons: "The aisles are very narrow especially in economy hard for a older person to negotiate"
Cons: "The sold out flight to air New Zealand. Had to purchase bags again even though already purchased."
Pros: "Friendly, courteous crew"
Cons: "Seat dimensions seem to have shrunk noticeably. Very little leg room"
Pros: "Skycouch a bit pricey, but worth it. Allowed sleep to be possible and comfortable on an overnight flight"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about"
Pros: "a) My vegetarian meal the I specially requested. b) The customer service on the phone, before my trip in California and the customer service of the flight attendants on the two flights of my trip. c) The blanket and pillow every passenger was offered on the long-haul flight from San Francisco to Auckland. d) The pilot or pilots handled the small amount turbulence we on the plane felt well so I did not feel uneasy at those times."
Cons: "For an economy class series of trips, I have nothing bad to report."
Pros: "Friendly prompt service!"
Pros: "It was a short flight :)"
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. I needed to use noise-cancelling headphones just to hear myself think. - sat on the tarmac in SFO for 1/2 hour before takeoff"
Pros: "On time, great customer service, the in flight entertainment is amazing! Even the food tastes good! Seats were comfortable, toilets and plane were clean, all around amazing."
Cons: "Nothing, it was perfect."
Pros: "The crew and plane was tops"
Cons: "It is very long, but that is no reflection on you."
Pros: "seat crew food entertainment"
Cons: "no wifi"
Cons: "Someone sitting in my seat already!"
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. Seems like this is a common issue with Air NZ - see e.g., skytrax website reviews. The website advertising is inaccurate if not false."
Pros: "Fun and plentiful entertainment. Great comfort."
Pros: "Loved the crew, and entertainment options"
Cons: "Very little space in the aisle and between seats"
Pros: "Crew helpful, congenial."
Cons: "Anticipated more legroom based on seat chart diagram."
Pros: "Very Innovative. Love the Premium Economy seats. And unlike many other airlines that do Premium Economy the food is not just economy food. It is far better and as good as anything you get in Business."
Pros: "Very attentive crew, layout, comfort"
Cons: "I enjoyed everything I wa"
Pros: "Always friendly and attentive crew. Food was very nice. The help getting from one flight to another at the stopover was wonderful."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Boarding and replanting was smooth and efficient."
Cons: "Seats were tiny. Arm rests did not rise. Seats barely tilted back. You had to fight with the touch screen entertainment system to get it to do anything. Also it seemed like we sought out the most turbulent altitude possible."
Pros: "seats were large, comfortable. layed back nicely"
Pros: "10/10 best flight I've been on, 13.5 hr flight flew by"
Pros: "I fly this route quite often and can't imagine using another airline. Always professional, always comfortable, always fun. Staff, food and entertainment are top notch. I literally trust the pilots with my life. Keep up the good work :)"
Cons: "I left my awesome brand new Nalgene at the terminal in SF. Never to be seen again. Could be worse, I suppose."
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and accommodating. They found solutions for any questions or difficulties we had. They checked any excess luggage before you boarded. Boarding the plane was done back to front which was nice in loading bags and passenger without waiting for people in front of the plane. Meal service was promptly served so complimentary alcohol. Both meals were appreciated on such a long flight."
Cons: "Only suggestion would be bottles of water that you can keep refilling."
Cons: "Service was poor"
Cons: "I felt that Air Canada was quite substandard. On our flight to NZ one bathroom was out of order the entire flight. Also found the staff on the return flight to be less than cordial. Also do not feel I should have to pay for headphones or a basic meal after the price of my ticket. On the return trip my entertainment screen froze and was not usable. Will probably not fly with this company again."
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "Packed flight so hard to stretch out, not much food or water but it was a red eye so lots of people were sleeping"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "A little tight on time between transfers."
Pros: "I liked the comfort of my location and seat"
Cons: "No wifi on a over 14 hour flight is ridiculous in this day and age. They didn't have wifi on both my flights. I would think twice before flying an airline so far without wifi."
Pros: "Plane was okay. Nice big screen"
Cons: "Crew was ok"
Pros: "Cathay Pacífic always high standard"
Pros: "Was good service onboard"
Cons: "They could be upgraded my whole itinerary and not just 1/4 of the trip"
Pros: "Entertainment was OK, but no wi fi offered."
Cons: "I AM FURIOUS VOYAMA SPELLED MY NAME WRONG 'RUSSELLG" CONNECTED AS ONE WORD RATHER THAN "RUSSELL G EWALD." WHEN I FOUND THIS OUT A DAY AND A HALF BEFORE MY FLIGHT, THEY REFUSED SAID NO CHANGE CAN BE MADE LESS THAN 48 HOURS IN ADVANCE. I WROTE FOR RETURN FLIGHT WEEK IN ADVANCE AND WON'T CHANGE IT"
Pros: "Familiarity with Cathay Pacific procedures"
Cons: "The airplane seemed a bit outdated. A WiFi option would have been more pleasant. Crew spoke only English, not the classic Cathay Pacific experience to HK."
Pros: "Crew was nice to direct you to where your seat is. Food was good."
Cons: "Snacks n drinks..water or soda offered after few hrs from dinner. Passengers should not ask for drinks or snack. I mean crackers or biscuits few hrs in mid flight. Even if passengers are mostly asleep, a crew member can walk down aisles with a tray of snacks. This will help some people wha mught not like the food or type 2 diabetic people who needs to eat n drink every 2 to 3 hrs. Signage on boarding gate is not clear. Your flight number and boarding time was in small projected sentences under a huge lettered former destination place."
Pros: "Very uneventful flights and that is a good thing. Friendly flight crew, good food served and on time."
Cons: "The aircraft from was showing some wear."
Pros: "Staff was terrific. On time. That’s most important."
Cons: "Seats were not great. Don’t recline properly. Food Very salty. No WyFy. Issue with point allocations and issue entering business Lounge. Purchased membership for this purpose . Was downgraded on my Marco Polo Membership. An error by the airlines. Won’t fly again with this airlines as a result."
Pros: "The cabin attendants were excellent in carrying iut their work and responsibilities. They were friendly too."
Cons: "I tried to check in online a day before the flight as per email advisory but most of the seats were blocked already and whatever seats left open were only a few and those were tbe ones in the middle or the ones that you need to pay additional. so I decided to check in at the airport but their staff didn’t help much. They still gave us seats away from each other even if I explained that we have some health issues that’s why we need to stay together."
Cons: "i had a surfboard bag that weighed 11lbs and my daughter had a surfboard bag that weighed 21 lbs and we are being charged $200 each both ways for a total charge of $800 round trip. This is an outragous fee for surfboard and other airlines specificly Alaskian Air, Quanties, and Virgin Australia have been letting us travel with surfboard bags for free that weight 3 times that much. I will never take Cathay Pacific again as we paid more for these flights because we had heard they do not charge for surfboard and they have great service. I had a total of $1200 fspending money for food and transportation for my trip to Bali. That leaves me with $400. Never again will I travel with Cathay Pacific and I will be spreading the word through social Media! Not a Happy Customer!!!"
Pros: "Except the end. I’ve been waiting for my luggage for over 30 mins."
Cons: "Waiting for my luggage"
Pros: "The crew was totally professional, the food was good, but the passengers were horrible, which is not Cathay Pacific’s fault."
Cons: "The American films were good but they could be better."
Pros: "Comfy seats and the entertainment for economy class were the best perks and price as well. Flight was also on time."
Cons: "The food was just awful. 2 meals were provided and both were chicken or beef with junky dessert. Bring your own food."
Pros: "Given we were in economy for a 15+ hour flight, things went very well. Seat was okay, food better than average, entertainment was reasonable."
Cons: "I didn’t like that I was in economy, and would have preferred business, but that’s what I paid for so all is well."
Pros: "Crew was very nice. On time."
Cons: "No inflight movie available. Long flight. I am a 6 foot American and the seats are just not comfortable if the person in front leans seat back. 15 inched from your face for a 12 hour flight is not fun."
Pros: "Entertainment choices, wine, charger"
Cons: "Food Choice and Alcoholic choices"
Pros: "Took off late, missed transfer flight, payed over 6 hours said they would buy lunch dinner. Could pay for hamburger with it, frltf"
Pros: "Cathay Pacific offers terrific service and decent food. The entertainment selection was good. Sitting in economy is tough for 14.5 hours unless you’re in a pod."
Cons: "Seats were a bit cramped, not a lot of legroom. The overhead bin for the middle row in aisle 64 is smaller than other bins."
Pros: "service was excellent"
Cons: "boarding took very long."
Pros: "The entertainment is in regards to the movie choices that I had. I wish my screen was a little bigger."
Cons: "My flight from Los Angeles to Hong Kong was cancelled due to a problem with the plane. I stood in line for 2 and a half hours at the airport only to have them tell me this. There was not visible sense of urgency on part of the staff at Cathay Pacific and they did not seem to have a contingency plan to deal with such a situation. I especially felt sorry for some of the elderly people who were also in line all that time with noting to drink and no place to sit."
Pros: "Everyone is kind!"
Cons: "It was operated by an alliance air company but I bought thru American Airlines, I even didn't know that was a coshare because I started the first leg with American, once it got cancelled they said that they couldn't do anything, and the other company said that the ticked was issued by American, nightmare. BTW I'm a Platinium member of American Airlines, what thy should at least give a little attention since I fly every month."
Cons: "Customer service is mediocre, nothing specials about their food. You have to ask for snacks on 13 hours flight."
Cons: "Upon arrival in Hong Kong, Cathay representatives automatically re-booked my connecting flight to Taipei assuming I would miss the connection. This was not the case. I was able to get to the connecting gate on time. Cathay representatives in Hong Kong were rude and unhelpful in re-issuing my boarding pass for my originally scheduled flight to Taipei."
Pros: "hospitality is very good.comfortable journey."
Cons: "I was place right next to the washroom. As soon as I sat down, I can smell the washroom ,which was not clean properly because of the washroom odor."
Cons: "The cushions were uncomfortable for a 14 hr trip. Not much choices in food. The omelette was bland."
Pros: "Stewardesses were nice and accomodating"
Cons: "Plane seemed a bit older for an international flight. Not much legroom, poor entertainment options no games and there were no adjustable air vents."
Pros: "Service was ok"
Cons: "I booked my reservation with kayak and pick out choice seats , when I check in was told by Cathay that they do not honor seat reservation from a 3rd party. I also paid for the exit seats so We have open space.. Very disappointed."
Pros: "The crew on this particular flight were incredible. They went above and beyond on every aspect. The best service I've ever received on a flight and I fly 40-50 times a year."
Pros: "Food, service, in-flight entertainment, and overall feeling of safety and comfort."
Pros: "The snack was so good"
Cons: "Water and soft drink didn't serve very often"
Pros: "This plane was an Airbus 350. Seems to be the lated Airbus model. Business class section very much like the Boing 777, maybe a little better in some design modification of the seats."
Cons: "Difficult transit at the very large Hong Kong airport. Too much walking to got to document control to enter and leave Hong Kong."
Pros: "The wonderful people and the service they provided with a great attitude."
Cons: "The food was only OK."
Pros: "Everything about the flight"
Cons: "I loved everything"
Pros: "Food and crew"
Cons: "Passenger next me kept getting up and flopping down in the seat, waking me up."
Pros: "reclining seats."
Pros: "There wasnt much to like about the flight except that we didnt end up dead."
Cons: "Where do you start? Boarding process made no sense so i wont even try to explain it. Just trust me. Once we got on the plane they wouldnt let me plug into the usb port while we were on the ground. Food Service was terrible. They woke me up (minutes after id fallen asleep) for both food service. First time i thought was accident. Second time i asked them not to wake me up and they said i have to get a do not disturb sticker (why wasnt i just given one before so i could make the decision to use it or not on my own?) Also the food was terrible. I dont expect much from airline food but i can say ive had acceptable meals on other airlines (emirates and lufthansa). The food was not what i expected for one of the highest rated airlines. The flight attendant had me put the seat up during food service so the lady behind me could eat. Wtf?? Never had to do that on another airline. When i was not sleeping they rarely came down the isles with water or juice trays. (I saw it once toward the end of the flight)...and trust me i didnt miss it because i was sleeping. When i did get water i had to beg for ice as well."
Pros: "The food was decent so that was the only good thing."
Cons: "The flight delayed the connecting flight so I ended up waiting for an extra 5 hours to catch another flight."
Pros: "Friendly and efficient crew"
Cons: "My knees pressed up against the seat in front of me. Tiny cramped seats for a very long flight."
Cons: "Ran out of several food and beverage options."
Cons: "Poor service ! Flight attendant used restroom for 30mins while there are 4 people waiting outside. Came out without saying anything and looked angry. The worst food ! Horrible !"
Cons: "For an airline that has good reputation, they had pretty old planes. My entertainment system was not working properly. Seats were dirty. I had a window seat and the window had a food stain on it. Crew kept serving the person next to me alcohol even though he was drunk. I found that very unprofessional with no regards to passengers sitting next to him. Drunk passenger misbehaved with me and passenger still kept serving him alcohol."
Pros: "Cathay Pacific always seems to have top cabin personnel. They are very attentive and really seem to try to meet your needs, more so than the crews of other airlines. Flying is not a particularly fun experience, but Cathay does its best. It's a bit hit and miss with the food, but this time my special request meals (Asian vegetarian) were pretty good."
Cons: "These 777's have really crappy legroom. A330's are much more comfortable (well, Airbus in general)."
Pros: "The people who work for the airline are the ones who make it one of the best airlines to take. They provide one of the best customer service experiences I have ever gone through."
Pros: "Premium economy was definitely worth the money. Made a huge difference in the long 15 hour leg. Was great to be able to stretch out, as well as easily step over my seat mate to access the aisle without disturbing them. Reading light was well positioned."
Cons: "I asked for a noodle snack a few hours after dinner and the young, uppity stewardess rolled her eyes at me, like it was a huge imposition. She brought the snack 27 minutes later, cold and handed it to me in a huff. It made the rest of the flight extremely uncomfortable, since I didn't feel comfortable asking for water or anything else the entire 10 hours. It soured my experience with Cathay and definitely spoilt the experience of Premium Economy. The older, more seasoned staff was much nicer and politer."
Pros: "The food was great and the in flight entertainment was on par as well"
Cons: "There was a lot of commotion as in other passengers had loud children. Additionally middle seat was uncomfortable for a person with long legs"

Cons: "the food, entertainment options (movies) the service including drinks, the plane itself and the overall airline could all be much better."

Cons: "The crew was not friendly at all. I had to ask for snacks from the crew in the back of the plane. The seats were not comfortable and the entertainment was dated and old."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and professional. Economy seats were slightly better than most, but the configuration of the 2 seats was good 2 of us to have our own area. Food was good."
Cons: "Boarding was hectic and unorganized, but functional. Movies/TV shows were limited compared to other airlines. I am taller so seating in any economy seat is cramped at best."

Cons: "Food was mediocre"
Pros: "Had an extra seat to strech out."
Pros: "I love the workers, I love the entertainment. The pilot did a great job."
Pros: "They had vegetarian options at every in-flight meal. Heaven! Flight staff were all extremely attentive and polite."
Cons: "Seats are cramped (as with most budget travel) and entertainment options were not very good. Movies were mainly very old and games not very interesting."
Pros: "Boarded on time. Good flight. The curry chicken was spicy, but good. Concerns on weight totals for luggage for checked (50 lbs) and carry-on bag (15 lbs). Never weighed either bag. Was prepared though just in case they did weigh, as we’d read about $150 overweight surcharge."

Cons: "After many hours the seats were not too uncomfortable. But that's after 10 hours flying. It was nice that they reclined like they did. But the padding could have been better."
Pros: "the service. coffee and teas was very good. probably because of the Fiji kind attendants and water."
Pros: "Great choices for entertainment; food was hot; crew was excellent to the point of bringing a hot moist towel to wash face/hands with in the morning before serving breakfast; boarding went quickly with having 2 rows to fill in, not just one; the best, however, was the cabin crew bringing water consistently through the night to those that were awake. My husband even took a glass and held it for me while I was snuggled under the blanket. Kudos, crew!!"
Cons: "HA! For me to find something 'wrong' would be hard! Maybe the headphones didn't fit the head just right and couldn't hear equally well out of the speakers? Maybe a bit more leg room for my extra-tall husband?"
Cons: "The food was okay. For a long flight I was expecting more options."
Pros: "Perfect trip. Accommodated my low sodium diet. Professional, efficient and friendly."
Pros: "Fiji Airways is among the top airlines for the long haul routes. New aircraft, clean cabins, fine entertainment and the friendliest crew you can find. They are consistently great."

Cons: "Food was mediocre. Seats are flat but not horizontal."
Pros: "Pleasantly surprised plenty of legroom and the service was great. Good value and would definitely fly with them again"
Pros: "Flight canceled. Fiji airways told us we would be booked on Qantas instead but the flight wouldn't give us time to make the connection. Ended up flying later,, longer and much more uncomfortable than expected. Had to take separate seats from family and middle seats, had to spend entire day in Sydney which required us to spend money on a visa and money to eat, had additional stress of then arriving too late and needing to rebook rental car and arranged hotel and make sure elederly parents with special needs were ok health wise. An overall disaster. Never ever a worse experience and I am a world traveler to 68 countries on 6 continents. Will be asking Fiji for full refund plus compensation for having to buy visas and spend day in Sydney."

Cons: "I was not given a meal for dinner. When I asked they sheepishly looked away from me and told me that there would be a voucher when we landed. We did not get any voucher,nor did they make an announcement that they ran out of food and would not be able to feed half of the plane. I am extremely disappointed in how this was handled, as people next to me were given first class meals and I was given one piece of cheese and one cracker. In the morning for breakfast my meal almost didn't come, I had to ask for it. And when it was given to me it was already opened and messed with."
Pros: "Service was excellent."
Cons: "The entertainment consoles for the whole middle section went out and even a reboot could not correct the problem. No one with expertise to troubleshoot the problem."
Pros: "Free food free booze and free movies music and tv!"
Cons: "The food was only subpar, sloppy eggs and wet chicken but everything else was fine."
Pros: "Liked how seats reclined more than usual and head rest curved. Good thing blankets were provided because it was freezing cold. Pillow was great for lower back."
Cons: "Need to have special ENCLOSED seats for young children and their parents! It was a horrible night hearing a 2 year scream the entire night! The food smelled so bad coming down the aisle, it was nauseating."

Cons: "would be nice to have more leg room"
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Food was average. Seats don't lay totally flat"

Pros: "It was okay the plan was a bit small and uncomfortable for an international flight.."
Cons: "My luggge didn't make the flight...I had to wait almost two days. And the airport is not close to where I was staying. No one offer to compensate for the inconvenience. We had to leave to another island so we was in a rush for our luggage."
Pros: "I liked that there was breakfast on the plane"
Cons: "The seats weren't very adjustable or comfortable and there could have been more movie and tv selection for such a long flight"
Pros: "2/4/2 across seating and electrical plug at every seat. So a couple can get one row and one aisle seat. Decent Wine included with meal."
Cons: "food mediocre."
Cons: "We get to LA for our connection and security says we need to check in again, and no one is at the fiji airways desk to check us in! The security guard sees this, lets us through to check in at the gate so we sprint there and 4 agents are standing around saying they are surprised we made it."
Cons: "my seat, i am to big"
Pros: "Excellent cabin crew"
Pros: "(mostly) friendly staff, decent chairs, decent set of movies available. (First leg by American, second leg by British Airway)"

Pros: "I haven't flown AA in a while, I was impressed with the entertainment and food!!! They had a variety of movies. Also, the food was simply but delicious! Cheese and fruit!"

Pros: "Great food, professional conduct"
Cons: "Couldn't control window tint after we left California"
Cons: "The seat I had reserved was given away even though I paid extra for it back in February. American Airlines rep said it was because when i book through a 3rd party like Kayak, they can't guarantee my seat assignment."

Cons: "Less than average legroom for an international flight."
Pros: "Everyone was friendly"
Cons: "Very tight fit."
Pros: "Staff was really friendly Boarding was easy Flight was on time"
Cons: "Not much space within the seats Food was mediocre Entertainment was okay"
Pros: "I gate checked in the stroller at LAX. When it was pretty much dumped in front of me at LHR with an unspecified apology, the sun hood was bent so it doesn't fold right anymore, there's scuff marks on the side, there's a part missing from the left wheel and it drags to one side now. Not happy. If I'd been told, we'll take this off you and damage it, I might have checked it normally. Our car seat was fine."
Cons: "Damaging our stroller. Food wasn't good either. A yogurt with various toppings apparently is a "Continental breakfast"."
Pros: "Quick to board and on time, plenty of leg room, great new movie and shoe selection during the flight."
Cons: "The food was satisfying, but not great. Entrees were quite salty and bread came a little soggy."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful! Especially Glenda."
Cons: "The flight was delayed six hours."

Cons: "The flight was over an hour delayed. that meant I arrived home at 1am. That is a very rough morning."

Pros: "Great choices of entertainment that made the flight very enjoyable"
Pros: "Left on time from LAX"
Cons: "We booked for British Airways since we have good experience with them before but this is "operated by American Airlines" - not sure why they just don't say American Airlines when booking. It's deceiving!!!"
Pros: "The crew relax and smile"
Cons: "very small seats"
Pros: "The handed out the customs forms just before landing because they were too busy chatting. I had to fill up the form during landing and got dizzy. During the fligh I asked for water and the stewardess forgot about it."
Pros: "Crews are very friendly, thank you"
Pros: "everything ran like clockwork"
Pros: "I liked boarding on time food ok crew freindly"
Cons: "My seat was so bad I could not recline it and it was tilted to one side"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable. The flight attendants were courteous."
Cons: "The food was not too good."
Pros: "My seat changed by a crew when I boarded on the plane and I thought that was rude but then I realized that all the row seats were empty. The newest airplane was clean, nice and had a cool entertainment system. All the crews were very friendly, nice and outstanding customer service especially one of the elder crews (Asian man) was very attentive and caring about all passengers. I hope he will be on the board for my return."
Cons: "No so far."
Pros: "American airline flight to Paris was great"
Pros: "The crew was nice and we had no issues during the flight. Seating issue (below) was fixed by agent (although we only were allowed to interact with a human because the self check-in didn't work."
Cons: "During online check-in we were seated separately, but given the option to remedy this for a mere $200. I remember a time not long ago when sitting together was a given, now, like all things, it is a privilege for those with means."
Pros: "they would not let me up grade and there was plenty of room to upgrade"
Cons: "I am handicap and was not given a upgrade"
Pros: "The entertainment was free on our flight and that was very nice. Watch a lot of movies iv been wanting to watch. Pilots flew the plane very well."
Cons: "I bought Japan Air but it was American air.. I'm not buy tickets any more!!"
Pros: "WHAT FOOD.,,,,,,.AA DOSE NOT FEE US OR HAVE ANY ENTERTAINMENT,"
Cons: "NOTHING AA IS JUST AS BAD AS FIJI AIRWAYS"
Pros: "It was a very peaceful flight. The crew was extremely professional, and courteous, one of the members went out of her way, and frankly it was the kindest flight attendant has been to me in a while."
Cons: "The typical complaint you would hear regarding airplane food. Though, it does not warrant a true complaint of the flight."
Cons: "Taking away headphones 40 mins prior to landing is ridiculous. AA needs to abandon Bose or figure out a better way."
Pros: "The flight was on time, even arrived early. Nice crew and plenty of food/snacks. It was good to have a selection of movies and TV shows to watch, too."
Cons: "The lack of space on such a long flight was painful, and there wasn't much opportunity to stretch my legs. I was also seated across from a woman who didn't realize how stupid it was to bring a toddler on a 12 hour flight, and he screamed pretty much the entire time. I couldn't sleep at all and not even headphones drowned it out. That part wasn't really the airline's fault though, and I could see that the flight attendants were asking her several times to get her son to quiet down. I just wish there were regulations on these sorts of situations. Everyone around you suffers when you bring a small child on a very long flight because they will inevitably be bored, cranky and uncomfortable, and because we are confined to our seats, we are forced to suffer through it all. I wish that children under a certain age would not be allowed to board flights over a certain length of time except for special circumstances."
Pros: "The "very" new 777-200 was very comfortable, well-laid out. I usually skip or leave half of the in-flight food served, but this rates as one of the best meals, I've had in an airplane outside of business class. The in-flight entertainment/information service was decent, but perhaps because the plane was still in new condition."
Cons: "On this entire business trip, I booked with other companies, but ended up 5 flights operated by American Airlines. One cancellation, 4 delayed, 3 late arrivals. The last one was the most annoying. I will be avoiding AA in the future. The domestic crews are generally brusque and miserable. The international flight crews were more accommodating and pleasant, but most of them also seemed annoyed at passenger presence. Also, having to pay for a preferred seat on a half-empty airplane is simply unfair. By 24hrs before the flight, AA must have known there were plenty of empty seats."
Pros: "New aircraft."
Cons: "The flight from LAX to HKG was diverted to Haneda, Tokyo. The septic tank was not properly emptied in LAX. Flight in Hong Kong was delayed by about 2 hours due to this diversion. I agree with the call from the Captain. It's a pity that the poor quality of service team in LAX (probably 1-2 individuals) caused tremendous inconvenience to passengers and crew."
Pros: "Everyghing was smooth and on time"
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "I booked the flight specifically because it was advertised and booked on British Airways, which is considered a nice international airline to fly. The flight was swaped to American Airlines, and I was put on an international flight that was archaic, I would have been better off flying a prop plane from the 1970's."
Pros: "Once in flight, it was a standard smooth ride to Tokyo."
Cons: "Late announcement of flight delay. Cost me 4 extra hours at LAX, doing nothing. Then, flight delayed again for 30 minutes prior to boarding...and yet AGAIN while on the plane...because of a water shortage. What had the crew been doing in between flights?? Lastly, these delays caused the plane to arrive in Tokyo at 12:30AM (originally it was 10:30PM). All transportations options were closed. I had to take a $90 USD taxi fare into the city. JAL or AA should have given travel vouchers to everyone who needed them. BAD SERVICE, BAD COMMUNICATIONS, BAD RATING."
Cons: "all flights delayed"
Pros: "Fast trip to london. Even it was late by more than hours plot made up some lost time. Entertainment was very good both in quality and varieties."
Cons: "Throughout the trip it was very bumbby. The food was not nearly as good as other cross Atlantic airlines."
Pros: "I liked that I landed in time to get to my next flight."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had a child kicking my seat back the whole flight and that the in flight movie that I purchased skipped more than it played."
Cons: "Some of the crew were rude, had us waiting forever get off the plane"
Pros: "Service, clean aircraft, I felt AA cares about me"
Cons: "Changing gates before boarding"
Cons: "Practically no food was served."
