MH609 was delayed from 2305 till 0030, all passengers board the flight and we were told to alight again due to technical faulty. Switch to another flight and delayed till 0230. By the time we arrived in Singapore, it is almost 0340. Collected the luggages, clear custom and arrived home is almost 0500. There was absolutely no refreshment provided in between, and have to switch between gates which are far apart."

If it is not due to flight delay, we left with very little time to clear the immigration, security screening and locate where the gate is."
Cons: "Rude staff on ground and cabin crew. Delayed. Lost baggage. Terrible customer service. I would never fly again."
Pros: "Left and arrived on time. From just the flight point of view, it was correct but traveling now is more than leaving from A in order to arrive to B"

Web checking did not work (with an error asking me to contact customer service at the airport) at both departure and arrival flights. I never fly in middle seats but was forced to do so since the staff couldn't give me an aisle seat during check in. I am still waiting for the airlines to contact me about damages."

Cons: "Can't think of any"
Cons: "constant flight delays"

Cons: "No communication of baggage fees - desperate service"

Pros: "On time ..... Everything was quite smooth and it arrived on time"
Cons: "I was shocked to find out that each checked bag was $45 which increased the cost of the flight significantly. They need to be more upfront about the costs. Also their checkin system is very inefficient - it took an additional 15 minutes to pay the bag fees, and it was of course another lineup! Also because we did not preorder any food we literally could not buy food or drinks on board. Crazy!"
Pros: "Easy and simple....hope it will be like this in the future flights as well...."
