Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "It was a great service overall!"
Cons: "Flight crew not too interactive"
Cons: "Economy seat was very uncomfortable even though it reclined a lot. Was very disappointed I could not sleep on 12 hour flight. Arm rests too low? Shape of backrest was odd. Maybe provide a bigger pillow in addition to neck pillow to have something to rest arms on. Also tou need more movies. Singapore Airlines has many more options. Overall airplane, crew and food were very nice"

Pros: "Good staff service and friendly people. The food was good. The flight was on time."
Cons: "The Pilot communicated to the passengers only one time during this 4 1/2 hour flight. The flight attendants were making the announcements for arrival information and timing. Maybe in this culture the Pilot is above speaking to the passengers."
Pros: "They will not let me board the plane and I checked the airline before.leaving USA to make sure my ticket is valid and it's OK but when I was to return to USA on april10 they inform me my ticket invalid,cost me alot of money and inconvenience ,God bless"

Pros: "Clean and very good service."
Cons: "Flight was diverted to another airport and when we finally got to Tokyo, the next flight's gate had closed even though it didn't leave for another two hours. We had to wait in a huge line to get rebooked and it was clear the Japan Airlines employees did not know what they were doing. Put me on a flight next day and couldn't even provide hotels for us (gave us $100 to find our own which was near impossible at that time). I had to sleep in a sleeping bag in the airport overnight by myself."
Pros: "food was great flight attendants are courteous and reliable"
Cons: "Boarding was actually good. It was checking your luggages in and getting your boarding passes which was POOR. Passengers on International flights going out of the Philippines are advised be at the airport at least 3 hours before scheduled flight. Well, the JAL check-in counter opened at 650AM for the 950AM flight (exactly 3 hours before the scheduled flight), with maybe some 50 people already in line. With most passengers coming far from the airport, it will be very very helpful if the counter, even at least one counter, would open earlier, so that passengers who came in early could check in early and wait comfortably in the departure area."

Pros: "Spacious business class seats, toilets super clean and well stocked. The best eye shades ever encountered."
Cons: "Food was terrible , crew were rude, there were delays due to airline problems at both ends of the flight, there was a complete lack of communication about the problems and how long the delays were going to be. Handling of missed connections was abysmal... Overall extremely disappointing."
Pros: "Top notch service. Very comfortable in business class. Very attentive. Would definitely fly with them again."
Pros: "Everything about this flight was top notch. The inflight entertainment, touch screen and remote controlled, was so good i was up the entire time watching movies Black Panther, Downsizing, DeathWish, Pacific Rim and listening to the wonderful library of music, i was surprised at the range of music, from uncensored rap to big band."
Pros: "I will only use Singapore Air for anywhere they fly. They really care about their passangers, 2 checked bags 1 carryon no charge, no airline does that. They constantly feed u & alcoholic beverages all at no extra charge. Flight attendants always have a smile on their flight. In flight entertainment was great, touch screen and remote controller. They supply earbuds, socks, toothbrush and paste."
Cons: "Absolutely no complaints"
Cons: "With no food preferences specified, it takes a significantly longer time to get your meal as there are a lot of people who have special dietary requirements on certain routes."
Cons: "Outdated Cabin Fit Out"
Cons: "The plane was freezing - absolutely freezing. Too cold. There were not enough fluids given out. Given we could not even take water brought in the airport into the plane there needed to be regular distributions of fluids on the flight as there was on the flight from London toy Singapore. It is a long flight and being dehydrated on a plane is not a good thing."
Pros: "Movie selection was great. Food was decent. Comfort was expected"

Pros: "The serivce was amazing. Also it was clean and the food was great."
Pros: "Loved the hot towel service"
Cons: "Entertainment could be better, however there were a few new and Oscar nominated movies available. Personal air conditioning would be great, I was too hot the entire flight"
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: "Overall experience"
Cons: "Could have had a better selection of movies"
Pros: "Amazing service and comfortable lay flat bed"
Pros: "Red wine was good"
Cons: "The seats in economy are now Way TOO SMALL! You better start calling Economy - "Stearage"! Food was not as good as on past flights with SA. Movie selection not as good as past SA flights. Earphones supplied are horrible!!!"
Pros: "Liked everything from service to comfort"
Pros: "Crew were helpful. Food was good, pillows and blankets in every seat was great. Seats a little small."
Pros: "The aircraft was clean, new, spacious and quiet. The bathrooms were regularly maintained. The food quality, selection and quantity was excellent for the economy class. Even the serving utensils were solid metal and had a very high quality feel to it. Having an endless supply of mid flight snacks was also appreciatd I always like the warm wet towels, which were offered at take off and landing. The entertainment choices were endless, but because it had USB and regular power, I was able to work on my laptop and listen to my podcasts on phone without worrying about running out of battery."
Cons: "The crew lacked its usual pep and cheer. For some reason they seemed very introverted and tired. First time on Singapore Airline that I noticed. The amenities kit was a bit on the cheap side. Also, only the supplied two prong headphones could be used with the entertainment system, I would have preferred an option to use my high end ones -- this was the main reason I chose to just work and listen to my own music/podcasts instead of watching a movie. We boarded and disembarked through the business sections and the aisles were too narrow. The announcements were hard to hear and the temperature was set too low for half of the flight (to kept fluctuating requiring constant adjustment of blanket/jacket). Having said that will keep flying them."
Pros: "Lounge experience was excellent. Service on the airline in general was excellent. Food and drinks we're just great. I enjoyed the sleeper seat that I was in. Everything was super smooth and I'm so glad I flew with Singapore Airlines."
Cons: "Nothing negative to report"

Pros: "Amazing crew, great service. Really good food"
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."
Cons: "Check sfo to Taipei comment. Due to vayama ticket broker never made trip and cost a ton very upset. I’ve used kayak over 10 yrs and likely not again I"
Cons: "There was absolutely no wifi even though it was advertised as a flight with wifi. Would not have minded if it was a short flight, however, flying from Asia to North America is always a long flight."
Cons: "Only the space was lacking...not a lot of room for such a long flight and having to sleep. But it was okay!"
Cons: "Plane was 3+ hours late to depart from San Francisco to San Diego on Christmas Eve. Flight attendants could have been much friendlier. Although it didn't apply to me, I didn't like the manner in which the heavyset female flight attendant asked people to store their items under their seats as we were arriving in San Diego. She was very grumpy. Not polite. No smile. Very bossy. Her poor attitude was definitely not necessary. Alaska can do a lot better."
Pros: "Crew was very kind"
Pros: "Food, premium eco was comfy"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Super comfortable coz I got the window seat that I requested- restful flight. Able to sleep during flight"

Pros: "The crew was helpful we landed at Taipei was on time."
Cons: "My flight from Vancouver to Taipei was poor I'm not impressed with the menu the vegetables and chicken was half way cooked. I was sick after I eat the foods. My connecting flights was too long I was at Taipei for more than 18 hours. The company could have been provided a hotel. I was miserable at the airport. The EVA Air has excellent foods and good crew. The Air Canada could have been provided a better sets for families with childrens. I was sitting 39 A next to a window. There was a family a mom and two child was separated from there mom. The mother of two was upset that she was separated with her two little girls. I feel bad with the two little girls that their mom was sitting behind us. So, I decided to move where the mom was so that the mom and two little girls could sit together and the mom was very happy and Blessed."

Pros: "We sat in the emergency row and had endless legroom. The blankets and pillows were good quality. Food was great! Crew was very attentive. Bathrooms were amazingly clean."
Cons: "We didn’t know how to access the entertainment."
Cons: "Very strict on baggage weight rules for carry=-on. Our carry-on bags were almost empty to meet their weight restrictions. Then, they couldn’t enter my United Mileage Plus number, I don’t think I got my mileage, still need to follow up with United. Used their online site, couldn’t get seat assignments, got lousy seats."

Cons: "Not comfortable"
Pros: "EVA Airlines was a wonderful experience from the beginning all the way to the end. From checking in to receive boarding passes, boarding, stewardess, the food, everything was wonderful. They were always pleasant and had a smile on their face. When my trip was changed by the website (vayama) to fly back to the states, EVA Airlines went above and beyond to make sure I was taken care, placed on another flight, and made it home to get to work the next day. They didn’t have to take care of me, but the did and the professionalism is amazing! I’m very pleased with this airline and will fly with them again!"

Pros: "I was so blown away by how amazing Eva Air is ! Boarding is incredibly organized. There is so much to watch on the tv. They make sure you are properly fed and are always going around with drinks. The crew is very friendly and helpful. The bathroom is stocked with toothbrushes, sleep masks, and even a facial mist for when your skin gets dehydrated. Flights were very smooth and the captain is in constant communication. I was so very excited to fly on the Gudetama jet! I wish I could have taken a pillow!"

Pros: "Spacious economy seats, tasty airline food. Professional crew and staff"
Cons: "LAX boarding area was cramped but this was probably not an EVA Air issue but more a LAX airport issue. Had NO idea Tom Bradley even had such cramped gates"
"There was a misunderstanding during check in that it was a mandatory requirement to make hotel reservations for quarantine without it you can’t board the airline.So we had to booked a hotel last minute and it was the wrong hotel since it’s not accredited by DOH Philippines. Since it was last minute we can’t get a refund or cancel the hotel. It was stressful and unnecessary hassle."
Cons: "Flight crew is great!"
Cons: "When covid don't exists"
Cons: "Not hung; great flight, great service"
Cons: "The crew should speak up and wait for answers before moving quickly away with beverages. Seat cushions are hard and thin. movie selections are terrible and few. worst selection ever."
Pros: "Everything was amazing"
Cons: "Could have been better if they let me know that a swabtest result is required from their accredited hospital..what a hassle and I wasn’t able to make the flight at all coz I only found it out at the airport..such a waste of time.."

Pros: "Seats are spacious and comfortable. Flights were on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "Food was not too good."
Cons: "There were a lot of confusion w/ the flight delay. We we’re told we have to spend the night in Seoul waiting for a flight out the following day. No agent greets us at the gate to arrange for hotel stay. We we’re directed all over the place and no one knows anything about such arrangement. Finally we’re put on a plane to our destination. I was not informed of the change and only realized that when was brought to the gate and put on a plane. It should have better organized and needs agent at gate to answer question."

Pros: "Nothing! They made me very upset!"
Cons: "They made me cancel my 6 month stay to a 30 day stay when I arrived at the airport, otherwise they would not allow me on the plane! They said I needed a vista for the length of stay which I always get when I am in Manila for the past 8-10 years that I have been going without any prior warning before I confirmed this booking! I was charged $500.00 to change the departure date! Outrageous!"
Cons: "one check-in crew (female) at gate was not very nice. My mom is disabled & in her personal wheelchair. The other check-in crew members told us (5 total) to go together to board the plane then this female staff told us we can only have one family member go in with my mom (to take care of the wheelchair then assist her on the plane) next time we board the plane. Their messages are inconsistent & her attitude was uncalled for, especially when she let other disabled passengers on with their more than one family members & the other Asiana staff members told us to go in at the same time."

Cons: "what i did not like about asiana was at the check in counter in New York JFK airport. the non asian clerk was pretty strict about overweight baggage. it’s my fault yes for not weighing them ahead of time but the clerk could have been more polite when speaking."
Pros: "i like how accomodating the crew was"
Pros: "The flight attendants were all helpful and nice, which is rare."
Cons: "Of course flying economy for a long haul is pretty dismal. One the way back the bathrooms did not have running water. ewww! they let a bottle of water for people to use; no thank you!"
Pros: "I like their attentiveness to service. Very efficient and hospitable comes to mind of these highly professional flight crew. From checking in my baggage to getting settled in before take off, meal and beverage service, and to ensuring overall comfort for we the passengers."
Cons: "Just the rudeness of some of my fellow passengers. Otherwise a great flight."
Pros: "The seat quite comfy compared to other airline."
Cons: "Entertainment. Nothing for each use. Bored."
Pros: "We actually got there."
Cons: "Terrible seats, no personal entertainment."
Cons: "Flight was frigid."
Cons: "The sound of the intercom during announcement of pilot coz it is weak."
Pros: "The posted schedule and price of ticket"
Cons: "Korea to Cebu flight was delayed for almost 2 hrs same as from Cebu to Korea and then to JFK. My niece and her son travelling to UK that same day was very unfortunate missing her booked bus to Brighton due to extreme delay and has to spend more to buy new bus tickets."
Cons: "Very unorganized boarding process."
Pros: "I truly appreciate, especially on a long flight, the extra leg room in between the seats. All the flight attendants were super nice & the food was awesome!"
Cons: "My only "annoyance" was the touch screen tv was a little difficult to use. Due to the over use of the tv, I had to touch the screen several times to complete the function I was asking it to do. So overall an excellent flight!"
Pros: "Toothbrushes/paste and mouthwash were provided in flight restrooms. Staff frequently came by and checked on passengers with drinks or snacks to ensure optimum comfort. Flight staff boarded the plane swiftly while also greeting each passenger warmly. In flight meals were great. Flight was short which was happy."
Pros: "Though not particularly personable, Flight attendants were generally efficient at their tasks. i.e. No mistakes with pre-arranged special meal requests."
Cons: "1) The ground staff in SEA never said a single 'please' or 'thank you', let alone any eye contact or even a mere 'you're welcome' in response to my expressions of thanks; I was made to thoroughly feel like a mere transaction. Clearly, Asiana severely needs basic manner- training for its staff. (this isn't the 1st time I've experienced rudeness from Asiana staff, but I just ignored it & chucked it up to their tired busy working days.) 2) We sat on the tarmac for an hour, exactly. We departed 1 hour later than scheduled, despite a short connection, which they, themselves, scheduled into this flight! ..."
Pros: "The service was top-notch, and so was the food. On my flight from San Francisco to Korea, things were just fine, Though I wish I had the window seat that was actually adjacent to the window, and not separated from the window by a desk/table arrangement. Aside from that, everything was grand."
Cons: "The flight from Korea to Bangkok was a different story. The seats resembled those you would find in premium economy on other airlines. While the food and service were good, the entertainment was abysmal. Basically, you were watching TV with poor quality reception and no ability to choose what you wanted to watch other than flipping through the channels to see what was already on. Although this was nearly a seven hour international flight, The entertainment package felt like something you would encounter on a cheap charter bus to Vegas. If I knew this was the aircraft I would be taking, I would never have booked on Asiana. The flight to Bangkok was really substandard."
Pros: "When checking in, the agent upgraded me to an exit row for free, which Asiana sells as a "preferred" seat. The legroom was phenomenal and the seat next to me remained empty. I was in the first row of the economy cabin, so I was the first to get served during the meal time and the first to have the trash collected. The seat was comfortable and had ample padding, even though the armrests could not move due to being in the exit row."
Cons: "When boarding, there is just one huge line with the entire flight lined up. Myself and a few other passengers just waited around the gate area until final call and then boarded, avoiding having to stand in the line that stretched to the next gate. The aircraft was an non-refurbished A330, featuring the old TV screens that showed entertainment in a loop. Good enough for a 2 hour flight, but any longer and AVOD would have been nice. Flight was delayed for 1 hour, we landed 1 hour late, but I still had enough time to make my connection."
Pros: "the flight was delayed but still okay with us since we had a long layover in seoul enroute to los angeles. smooth flight, excellent service. will fly asiana again, anytime."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and the on-board entertainment options were decent enough. I had the gluten free meal plan which was ok. The ladies were very organized and I got my meal before the rest of the plane."
Cons: "The plane was delayed so our supposed hour and a half layover turned into a mad mad dash across the airport and through security, again. It would have been extremely helpful if they could have gotten the two handfuls of us passengers off before everyone else so we could get to our connecting flight with the same airliner..."
Pros: "The service and food were good."
Cons: "Long line to check in, very inefficient compared to the LAX check in."
Pros: "I like everything in it. The flight was excellent. Relaxing!"
Cons: "Nothing serious to mention."
Pros: "Lots of room in an economy seat, both in seat width and in knee-room. Great entertainment system! Good food and served frequently during a flight that lasted over 12 hours. Very efficient boarding process."
Cons: "The crew could have been more pro-active in offering drinks during such a long flight. A wider choice of movies would have been appreciated."
Cons: "No vegetarian option for meals like most other flights have these days. On the return flight I even tried to book one online and could not find where/how to do it. I also asked upon check in and was told it takes 2 days at least to request a veggie meal. This is really pathetic considering I'm flying from a part of the world that has a high Buddhist population."
Pros: "Great service, great food very content with Asiana airlines will definitely use it again"
Cons: "We wait for about 1 and a half hour to get off the plane due to some "procedures " with a sick passenger"
Pros: "Boarding and on time flights"
Cons: "No personal tv on flight"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Better attitude of head attendant. Need to improve food. Not attentive."
Pros: "The crew is not so amazing and the food is not so good.They only serve pork and sea food..i don't eat those food for my religion and i asked for another food anything as long as i had something for im starving, for they never had another food to give? You mean i cannot have food while boarding the plane? Im starving and they don't gibe us any food to eat even if i asked them if theres anything . And that is a total not agreeable we are 3 people riding the plane myself and my kids and we did not have anything to eat. The crew is rude when I asked something instead of looking for another food is theres any. I paid for my flight including the food and i was not able to eat."
Cons: "Crew serving food should be nice and make sure that all passengers have food to eat especially if one, two or three or more doesn't eat pork and shrimp..if only i could i could transfer plane at that moment i will do it. Hope they will not feel the way i feel i was starving the whole flight.."
Pros: "The seat was not super comfortable but the crew was really lovely and so helpful!"
Cons: "More padding on the seat would have been nice"
Cons: "Finest Airline and service I have encountered and I am almost 2 million miles!"
Pros: "Well fed and provided beverages on trip. Food not gourmet----but what do you expect? Crew was pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "Sure could use a little more leg room. I am 6'2"--so know I am taller than the average bear, but I think even a 5"8" man or woman finds the legroom a little tight---especially on a 15hr flight. On a 3 to 5 hour flight--OK. The legroom was durable--but you asked waht could be better and that point sticks out in my mind."
Pros: "Cathay Pacific and crews were really good."
Cons: "I suggest no seating reservation online."
Pros: "The flight was good"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Delayed too much except that, everything was good"
Pros: "Crew and the food"
Cons: "Seating was tight for me a big guy"
Pros: "They are amazing"

Pros: "Crew, food, entertainment were all very nice. 5 out 5."
Pros: "Just fine.."
Pros: "was upgraded to a very comfortable flat bed seat been a very long while a cx flight was on time"
Cons: "food quality and entertainment system choices are poor - flight attendants constantly on the pa for meaningless messages that given in languages"
Pros: "Crew was helpful but 1 crew forgot my dinner drink which was a hot tea drink."
Cons: "Maybe write down who ordered drinks while serving dinner tray.. if there were turbulence the crew can go back to that list then setve it when seat belt sign is off."
Cons: "flight delayed as always"
Cons: "flight delayed as usual"
Cons: "flight delayed as always"

Cons: "The food on Cathay still has not improved compared to other airlines'"
Pros: "comfortable seats with good leg room"
Cons: "Cabin crew did not offer much service. No coffee, tea or water offered."
Pros: "Friendly service on time flight"
Cons: "Boarding for premium economy had no special boarding. We were forced to stay in a long long line even though we paid almost double the fair with premium economy. All our other flights we got earlier boarding. There was no explanation given when I asked"
Pros: "The upgraded seat to business class."
Cons: "Some staff still needs training, sinplying saying no, is not acceptable, finding a solution and working towards a resuloution is more acceptable. Better verbiage used, checking on food count making sure EVERYONE gets what’s printed on the menu. Asking everyone equally on the same roll is the rule of thumb."
Cons: "Too cramped not enough space staff are not friendly will not fly Cathay again"
Cons: "Original itinerary was not followed. Plane from manila to hongkong left late and was transferred to a different flight for hongkong to Auckland .Seats not even together. Was put on 2 lay overs instead of just 1 (hongkong to Aussie then Aussie to Auckland. With no compensation at all. Sorry is not enough."
Pros: "their korean movies"
Cons: "they have worst coordination between airline crew and airport personnel who is in charge with services taking care for the handicap they forgot to board my aunt so i had to help my aunt board then the crew informed me i am not allowed to bring her in the plane and leave the wheelchair in the tube i had to bring her in the plane since my aunt was anxious other people in wheelchair was already brought in and she was left behind"
Pros: "Cathay is usually a solid airline to fly with. It’s comfortable even in economy and the staff is pleasant and usually efficient."
Cons: "The delayed boarding process and the bottleneck once people were boarding didn’t allow for the flight to depart on time."
Pros: "Very efficient service and prompt arrivals unlike United Airlines.aircraft was modern and equipment was generally well maintained."
Cons: "What other snack options available other than Ramen Noodles. Maybe a low carb option is needed. There are some noodles made from soy products and these will be low carbohydrate. Seats in economy are ok for short people. All airlines should designate an infant seating area close to toilets. This way all infants will be restricted to these seats and the noise pollution in the aircraft is restricted to a small section of the ship.these seats can be specially configured to either seat a no rmal adult or a fast attachments for a baby carrier."
Cons: "None in particular"
Cons: "Flight to Hongkong arrived late in Hongkong hence had to stay extra 31/2 hours in Honking to wait for the next flight to New York!"
Pros: "Food is ok."
Cons: "Washrooms are small and dirty."
Cons: "The rush at lay over to get to the next plane. No time even for just a cigarette, before the long flight to NYC."
Pros: "The crew is always very polite and professional."
Cons: "I fly every two months and have to watch the same movies over and over. There should be a more frequent change. I just can't handle airplane food...........even if its Italian or American, it still tastes Asian."
Pros: "I like the snacks offered"
Cons: "Great crew we got a soft landing"
Pros: "Clean plane"
Cons: "Seat won't recline"
Pros: "food was awesome. the seats were pretty comfortable. the in-flight crew were always so helpful and smiling. there was quite a collection of movies to choose from which is nice."
Cons: "The ground staff at the departure lounge were most of the time chatting or walking in circles and chatting. Also they were not as organized nor as accomodating than expected. Kinda shows a lesser level of professionalism than the crew in other countries."
Pros: "Airline staff were all helpful and pleasant."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Flying beats driving"
Pros: "Everything! Very organized!"
Cons: "Flight was scheduled to leave 8:30 AM and we ended leaving 12:45 PM!!!"
Pros: "The service, the plane, friendly staff all throughout"
Cons: "The particular flight we took lands in LAX at 1420 hrs,, height of arrivals. Immigration took us an 2 hours to clear. Perhaps CX can adjust their arrival time by an hour or so to avoid the peak arrival time of many flights."
Cons: "I was seated at the last seats and by the time it was my turn to choose from the menu, there was none left but just one option for me. Hope Cathay pacific will add extra food selections to accommodate passengers in the last seats."
Pros: "In-flight entertainment"
Cons: "Small portion of food"
Pros: "Everything was fantastic all services was really awesome. It was my first time to flight Cathy and i was amazed"
