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."

All round it was a long trip made a lot easier......5 stars."

Pros: "Amazing service and comfortable lay flat bed"
Cons: "I purchased this ticket without realizing that the law stipulated 6-month validity remaining on one's US passport to enter singapore. The Singapore Airways website does not state this anywhere, and it was not until I arrived at the airport that I was informed that I wouldn't be able to check in, but nor could I refund or transfer the ticket. The booker should be obliged, when one enters the passport information upon purchasing the ticket, to make note if the passport expiration time is not valid for the flight. Spent $600+ on the flight, and the customer service person I spoke to from the airport was very abrasive and not interested in helping me figure out an alternative."

Cons: "the food on Silk Air can be better"
Pros: "New movies! Yes!"
Cons: "I asked for one of the crew to help me bring up my carry-on luggage, as i'm just recovering from a flu at that time. Instead the FA looked at my bag and asked me in an irritated tone if my bag was really that heavy? I said I was recovering and I just need an extra push once I lift it up into the cabin. In the end she did help but i did not appreciate her attitude and felt disappointed my whole flight."

They gave her a toy, asked for her name, and checked on us often. They also gave my husband and I an option for early food service so that one of us could help our daughter eat. The movie selection was great. Take off, flight and landing were smooth. And we arrive half an hour early both directions!"

Pros: "The service on line was excellent.! The staff was friendly and accommodating. The pilot was informative. I would definitely fly EVAAIR with my family again."
Cons: "The staff speaks English very well, but they think they have to speak really loud for the customer to understand them. That is not the case everyone understands and just because someone speaks louder it doesn't make a difference if they did not understand. Please let your staff know they can speak in a normal tone, we understood every single person on our trip."
Pros: "EVA staff was professional and boarding was done quite fast. Food was fair for airline food."
Pros: "evrything was great, the food, the crews, the plane was soooo good. I mean erything was really great"

Pros: "Overall great service by the airline. No complaints to speak of for this leg or any of the 4 flights in total to which I utilized this airline."
Cons: "3 hour delay (approximate)! from scheduled departure out of Beijing (Peking Airport). Was no fault of the airline but rather the airport itself as I saw other airlines stacked up upon arrival and waiting for their gate assignment. Also other departures finally recieving a pushback from the gate after significant delays. EVA captain was good about keeping the passengers informed about delay and anticipated times for actual departure when the tower would inform him."
Pros: "Attentive service with great staff in all positions; excellent selection of movies; excellent food (Asian vegetarian style); overall a very pleasant experience even though 14 hour flying time."

Pros: "Eva Airlines plane was very nice, clean, new and tech-savvy. I have no complaints about the food. The seating also seemed quite nice. If those are the only parts of the experience I would be happy to fly with Eva Air again."
Cons: "I did not like that Eva Airlines could not pass gate and terminal information on to United Airlines when I checked into the Orlando Airport. Because this information was missing from the original boarding passes printed at the United Airlines terminal I was sent to the United Airlines gate at LAX. The United Airlines staff was even confused by the way the tickets were printed. I kept asking United Airlines staff and Airport staff where I should go for my connecting flight. They always sent me to the United Airlines terminal and gate and I waited there to board my plane. Shocked at time for departure my plane still was not boarding. I got concerned and started asking even more questions. This is when staff at the airport finally noticed I was waiting in the wrong area. Now I had to run with the help of a security guard all the way to the other end of the airport in order to board my Eva Airlines playing at the Eva Airlines terminal. This led to me being 45 minutes late boarding the plane I have no idea why it didn't take off without me. I am quite certain that they hold the plane for me because the staff for Eva Airlines was extremely rude to me. After running for 20 minutes straight to get to the plane I was extremely thirsty and ask them for water which they totally ignored. Even after boarding the plane and taking off when the stewardess would walk by my side I would ask for water to drink. Even at this later time I was still being ignored. If the stuff for Eva Airlines is like this on my way home I will most likely avoid fighting with them at all costs in the future."

Cons: "Emirates chairs couldn't decline recline"
Cons: "1 day late , no refund for tle lost ticket in Seattle"
Pros: "Long flight but comfortable. I will fly emirates again."
Cons: "In some instances their was a shortage of food option. Although the menu said you could have a choice but some of the choices were exhausted by the time crew served it to the half of the travellers and the rest have to eat whatever was leftover. I think Emirates should stock a bit more of the food especially on a plane like Airbus 380. Its a huge aircraft and passengers sting at the vey end had to wait almost 45 min to 1 hr to get their food and that too was whatever leftover. They should make efforts to server all the passengers within a short amount to time rather than keep them waiting for so long. Most of the time more than half of the passengers had already eaten while those sitting in the back were still waiting for their food. Its not cabin crew's inefficiency but rather a policy problem that needs to be addressed."
Cons: "movies selection"
Pros: "Every thing"

Cons: "I always like Emirates."
Pros: "Flights were booked back in May and Emirates did not make major schedule changes"
Cons: "Consistently late departures. Did not keep passengers informed about updated departure times. After serving the food, it took more than one hour to take the leftovers away. During the flight from Dubai -Chicago, hot beverages were served 1.5 hours after the food was served. Crew was not friendly at all. During the Chicago-Dubai flight a crew member basically yelled at passengers "open the windows" and I had to tell him to "ask nicely please).

Pros: "Emirates flight and on flight services were Superb!"

Cons: "when I arrived at seoul, incheon airport, I found that one of my gulf clubs was broken. it was the fist time that the golf club broken. I was so upset"

Pros: "New plane (airbus a350). Love the family couch."
Cons: "Crew wasn't as attentive as expected."
Pros: "Legroom and entertainment are nice. Seats in economy are better than average."
Cons: "The staff does not seem to mind bumping into you or a seat with a cart in the aisle... And they don't control the 'gold rush' boarders who can't tell zone 1 from 3 or premier from economy... Of know what 'parents with small children' means... They just run the bulls...."
Pros: "Enough legroom & space in economy"
Pros: "Very attentive staff Plenty of movie options"
Cons: "Food was meh but that's common for airline food"
Pros: "The inflight entertainment was okay. Changing planes in Taipei was enlivened by their funky themed lounges."

Cons: "Delayed one hour ..."

Cons: "Food service not that good."
Pros: "Crew was nice and polite"
Cons: "No information, lack of communication"
Cons: "Comfort was horrible! We were cramped in like sardines there was absolutely no room! To walk to rest for 13 hour flight. Crew is stiff a feels like they're paid to smile."
Cons: "delayed flight"
Pros: "I loved that my knees didn't touch the seat in front of me. As a tall girl and a 12hr flight that would not have been comfortable at all."
Cons: "the air hostesses could have been a bit more accommodating, welcoming, pleasant, willing and smiling."
Pros: "Food was good. The screen of the first flight LAX-TPE) was big and new."
Cons: "If the crew needs more rest please give them enough turnaround and breaks. They all look tired and unhappy. That's something the company has to fix, not the consumer to bear. The guy next to me didn't put his bag in the overhead cabinet, so it kept poking me or lie on my feet the entire flight. I'm sure this is something the airline would be able to enforce for security reasons."
Pros: "everything run very well and hardware was great"
Pros: "Price was good. The plane was quiet and clean."
Cons: "Food was not very good compared to competitors. I fly a lot and I'm positive these were the smallest seats I've ever had. Understand it's economy, but for a 12 hr. flight it's difficult. Also, check-in line took almost 2 hrs, giving most of us 30 min to go through security and find the boarding gate."

Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "No customer service people to talk to about seating. No one ever answer the telephone"

Sit on the right side to enjoy views of Alaska and Japan coastlines and twilight fishing vessels."

Pros: "Food & water were passed out on time"
Cons: "Too full, seats were so near each other"
Pros: "The staff was friendly and helpful. The pilot was very impressive, I don't think I have ever had a smother landing! There were tons of movies to choose from. The food was decent, and there was lots of it."
Cons: "The weight limit of 7kg for carry on bags is enforced. I have never had my carry on weighed before, but China Airlines does. My bag was twice the weight limit, and the man checking my weight offered to check it for free. However, I did not want to check it because it had my DSLR camera and laptop computer with some other things. The weight limit is very small. I took everything out of my suitcase except the laptop and camera bag and it was still too heavy. Then I put some of my lenses in my purse took the camera and other lenses out of the bag and wrapped them in a scarf and managed to get it under the limit. So if traveling China Airlines make sure your carry on is less than 7kg, and good luck if you have electronics you don't want to check."
Cons: "Flight back had a 3.5 hour delay"
Pros: "Our first SAS flight from Stockholm was delayed, so when we landed in Hong Kong, an agent met us at the gate and rushed with our passport to the transfer desk to help us get our connecting boarding pass, otherwise we would not have made it to the connecting flight on China Airlines to Taipei, and even our luggages arrived with us amazingly!"

Pros: "The attendants were very good on the flight and they made it worthwhile to fly there..."

Pros: "New aircraft was very nice. Clean, staff were friendly"

Pros: "The crew! Prompt service and accomodating"
Cons: "Oh just the vegies in the noodles kind of overcooked but it was okay"
Pros: "The flight crew and services were adequate and hospitable. Boarding and landing time were on time without delays."
Cons: "The food was just satisfactory; tasted like a bento box you can get from a convenience store. The entertainment screens were quite troublesome to watch. Even with the brightness turned at maximum value, I had difficulty in making out what was happening on the screen."
Pros: "The cabin attendants were top notch, they were kind and professional."
Cons: "I couldn't add my miles for the outbound trip, Narita-Taipei-Bangkok on the Dynasty webpage...very frustrating."

Pros: "The late departure time is nice. You can sleep on the flight an be right at work upon your arrival. Several easy connections to be in mainland china the same morning. Power outlet, USB charger and large screen are great in a 13 hours flight. The seat are comfortable although a little to close as in any economy class."
Pros: "China Airlines was notorious for the poor safety standard couple decades ago, and I stayed away from this airline for a while. I went traveling with China Airlines this time, which included long haul flights this time, and I found the experience very pleasant. Food was good, flight crews were helpful and friendly, and the ride was smooth. The flight was not expensive, perhaps because their poor safety record in the past, so the cost performance is definitely better than most of the other airlines. I will definitely keep the option of flying with China Airlines in the future."
Pros: "The plane was newer with individual entertainment units with large selection of movies and music. The seats in economy much more comfortable than American airlines as more leg room and reclines relatively far back."
Cons: "The food was not very good."
Pros: "Very well groomed, professional, and polite staff. Aircraft was clean and well maintained. Lots of movies and games to choose from which helped for the 18.5 hours of flight (LAX to BKK)."
Cons: "Chairs are narrow with little leg room. I'm a petite 5'0" woman so if I'm uncomfortable, I can't imagine how a taller/larger person feels. But this is no different than any other airline."

Pros: "Had to use wheel chair. Everyone was positive and helpful. Thank you"
