Cons: "Luggages weren’t transferred to Bali together with my flight. Gate check in stroller was sent to baggage claim without notification. I was waiting the whole time after exiting plane."
Pros: "Lie-flat seats in business class"
Cons: "4 hrs delay due to failure of Singapore Airlines to have a working plane on site at the appointed time. Even worse: chaotic deplaning with one crew member telling passengers to deplane and another yelling at them in the bridge for doing so. A mess of lines trying to get a new boarding pass for a rebooked missed connection—at the front of the line the agent said oh, you need to wait in this other line. Agents had no clue where to direct passengers and gave incorrect directions that necessitated more waiting. No updates to new flight time in the business class lounge. Once the flight was in the air, service was terrible. Attendants would ask for orders, then never bring them or bring the wrong thing."
Pros: "Food was pretty good. Loved the Weiss ice cream bars"

Pros: "Everything From the food to the drinks to the comfort"
Pros: "Again friendly and efficient staff and a smooth flight. Best features of Singapore Airlines."
Cons: "The business class seats were smaller than I thought and not so comfortable as the 777. The seats are hard and ungiving and when you sleep on them you really feel it. Plus the flatbed lay out meant you were basically lying in a question mark position, not so goof for tall people like my husband. The food was good but uninteresting and I think for an overnight flight there should be more smaller,lighter, non spicy options offered rather that full dinners."
Pros: "Friendly efficient staff. plane 777 business class seat comfortable, and flat bed, once you figured out how to operate it was also comfortable. Food was good but not excellent compared to previous flights."

When we arrived at Hong Kong, there was no wheelchair on the bridge, and after disembarking and being told to wait, it took 30 minutes for them to bring one.

Cons: "Several of the food items were either cold or overdone. I asked hostess what the deal was (because their food service is usually great) and she explained that in this new plane (Boeing 787) they removed a lot of the working areas for the crew. They have less space to work in order to be able to prepare food and drinks compared to Qantas's other planes (Airbus A380). This is also a brand new plane for this crew (literally the first flight for some for some of them), and they didn't know where some of the things on the plane were. I imagine after they've used the plane for a while and learn where everything is, they'll get better. I'll find out on the return flight back to Melbourne."

Cons: "- delayed flight because of delayed crew - They've had many crew injuries helping customers moving overhead luggage, so they asked customers to sort their own luggage out. Hey, how about teaching OH&S to staff and employing staff that can perform their duties?"
Pros: "The crew is always nice and approachable. The entertainment is usually high but this time around there weren't many good choices."
Cons: "The food is AWFUL, and has been getting worse as the years go on. Absolutely terrible taste, stomach-churning smells and gross consistency. During boarding I was profiled by one of your gate agents and "selected for further screening" ... not fun.

Pros: "Comfortable plane. Good entertainment. Very nice chicken salad. Friendly staff."

Cons: "Nothing that is unique to Qantas or just flying in general."
Cons: "Great service , very caring and clean . Looked after me as I had to use a wheelchair . Thank you :)"
Pros: "The interior of the seats a very nice. QANTAS blankets and cushions are comfortable. I also like the little drop down net under the seat for you feet to rest in.

Pros: "A cut above all others"
Pros: "Qantas has really upped it's service in the last couple of years, their crew on this flight were very professional."

Pros: "Great selection of entertainment. Good pillows."
Cons: "They let us know by email little before departure that there would be a delay of 1h 15 min in our arrival to London. This made me uneasy from the very beginning that I would lose my London-Luxembourg flight. The crew in the boarding gate, only after much insisting, said they would make a note so that someone from Qantas would wait for me and help me get my London-Luxembourg flight no problem, but in the next stopovers (Melbourne, Dubai), there was no sign of this. Also, the delay in the end was 2h 20 min - and I lost my flight to Luxembourg."

Cons: "In-flight entertainment"
Pros: "The cabin crew were very pleasant."

Pros: "This plane is in much better shape than the last one."
Cons: "Flight delays seem to be a common thing with VN airlines"
Cons: "The whole online experience dealing with the airline is poor. I attempted to upgrade repeatedly online however the website would not recognise my ticket.

Pros: "Great service from start to finish"
Pros: "The check-in staff realised we hadn't allowed enough time to transit in Ho Chi Minh city, so they seated us close to the front and put business class tags on our luggage. They were the first on to the carousel."
Cons: "Every one of our legs was delayed, which contributed to tight transit times."
Pros: "The check-in staff at SGN domestic were efficient in getting us on to our connecting flight despite the late arrival from Sydney."
Cons: "Communication. Our plane had a malfunction at Sydney which caused a delay. After it was repaired, we are then told of further delays due to the pilot now running out of hours, delays in sourcing a new pilot, and then having to resupply all the catering. 26 hour delay."

Cons: "Only juice or water?"

Cons: "Boarding is very unorganized, and takes so much time. They could probably improve by assigning certain rows to use the front/rear door of the aircraft. For example: rows 1-15 use the front door, and 16-30 use the rear door. That way there’re not too much congestion and waiting on the aisle."
Pros: "From check in to final arrivals this was a smooth and faultless flight. Too short for food or entertainment but everything was perfect. All booked through Kayak."
Pros: "Staff were helpful in airport and on plane. We were running late due to a delayed transfer but the on-ground staff personally escorted us through ticketing and immigration. In air staff was also very helpful and checked on us throughout the flight."
Cons: "Plane was a tired, old A320. Business class has no power or USB ports. Also very few entertainment choices."
Pros: "Was able to buy last minute at airport. food and drinks are fine"
Cons: "delayed by 40mins. but is ok as already informed from morning entertainment is overhead screen aircon not strong"
Pros: "We really enjoy the additional room in Premium Economy. The boarding process and checki in was terrific."
Cons: "Whilst the crew were pleasant today"
Pros: "The food was good as there were selections of either Japanese food or Western food. In flight entertainment was good too with enough selections to choose from. Overalll, the service of crew was satisfying."
Cons: "Flight was delayed a little during departure. Arrival to ho chi minh is not via aerobridge."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Boarding was not via aerobridge. Landing was a little rough."
Cons: ". I was shocked to see social distancing was not implemented with no seats apart and I was in the middle of four seats. If the journey is as important as the destination, then it already failed the minute I was seated in a very intimate setting alongside strangers and seeing the economy class fully booked. The airline defended this by saying they have special economy seats but I complained that this is not equitable since the seats are limited and not everyone could afford an upgrade. Even if they could, the passengers would still be seated side by side and the total number of passengers aboard a tight and enclosed space or load factor is still very high. The airline’s policy was so inconsistent with the very rigid rules of the different government agencies upon disembarkation."
Pros: "The plane was on time ,all good"
Cons: "A little more leg room... but all in all. Not to bad"
Cons: "Need improvements"
Cons: "The transfer in Manila was like nowhere else. After the security check we were sent outside where buses were driving to claim our checked-in luggage to take it for another check just to drop it one minute later. Anywhere in the world if you board a flight with a stop-over you see your luggage at the final destination, not the case if you fly trough Manila."
Cons: "food was so bad. bread/roll was served long after the food is served, due to zoning assignments. NO FREAKING INFLIGHT ENtERtainment the whole FReaking 14hrs of flight time. very poor, very bad for expensive airfare tickets"
Pros: "food and service"
Pros: "The crew was extra friendly. The seat was spacious. Good leg room."
Cons: "Main meal , too much rice for a westerner. Quality could improve a bit. Bread roll was below average."

Cons: "Beyond our control it was a bit torbulent over Jap an for almost 2 hours but asido from that my trip was perfect!"
Pros: "Flight was on time. No stop over, because it is a direct flight."
Cons: "The choice on the menu is not available, the bread was not given to us, because they run out, no apple juice because it run out too. Drinking water served, it is warm.They should offer some ice cubes or ask the passengers if they want ice... Other airlines, serves different juices through out the flight. Crew not communicating at all. Doesn't say anything or serve you with a smile."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Crew must smile and speak to passengers...poor body language. Waiting for our luggage in the conveyor and give to the guys for them to put a tag for transfer flight to London. If it is connecting flight, passenger should get their luggage in their final airport of destination. Causing delay, because we still have to queve in the immigration. Don't see the point in that."

Pros: "Crew was cold but quite busy."
Cons: "Checking in was very slow and boarding process was very poor!"
Cons: "PAL is literally never on time. The terminal process was absurd - 300 person line to check in and print a boarding pass. Then it was 1hr late to boars and then >90 mins waiting on the tarmac. Just a terrible on-time performance and inconvenient process that is typical of PAL"
Cons: "Seats did not recline very much. Hard. Food was very plain and starchy."
Cons: "Outstanding flight to Hawaii."

Pros: "Fantastic onboard product in Business Class. Superb seating with all direct aisle access, excellent meals and friendly F/A's."
Cons: "I was a little concerned at the lax approach to securing the cabin for take off and landing the F/A's had. The Philippine Airlines lounge is an embarrassment for an airlines hub airport."
Pros: "Currtious attendants."
Cons: "Dis orderly lines. Too many long lines"
Pros: "The service of Philippine Airlines have greatly improved. I have flown over 20 international airlines like Singapore Airlines, Thai Airways, Etihad Airways, British Airways, Lufthansa Airways, JAL, ANA, EVA Air, Korean Air, ASIANA Air , LAN Chile, Cathay Pacific, Qantas Airlines to name a few. And these airlines gave good service. The service of Philippine Airlines is good. They just need to add movies in all the regional flights ."
Cons: "The airlines need to add videos and movies. Without it, the airlines is like flying in the JURASSIC era!"
Pros: "Aircraft spacious seats comfortable Crew very friendly and welcoming good movie selection"
Cons: "Cues at T2 massive to go through immigration zig zag around terminal Seats don’t adjust well and little leg room when flat. Food uninspiring. Tv fixed lots of reflections. Toilets small."
Cons: "The lounge is awful."
Pros: "Comfortable seats , clean modern aircraft ."
Cons: "The entertainment was poor. No relatively new films . All TV programs were American. The Wi-Fi was slow at best . The crew tried hard but the attention to detail was lacking"
Pros: "Birding was great. Punctual flight."
Cons: "My entertainment screen broke. It took the crew 7 hours to replace it. A crew member said they would sort it, bit nothing for 6.5 hours There appeared be confusing within the crew members about what food I ordered."
Pros: "Crew were polite and helpful Aircraft ? Great Bad. Awesome awful. All of those. I really was to say nice things as it’s just basics that were bad"
Cons: "Business lounge ? Ummm totally unacceptable. It’s a PAYG uncomfortable Un stocked unstaffed waste. Food Was extremely basic. If economy fine but business!!! Very poor"

Cons: "Slightly limited entertainment . Mabuhay lounge at Manila's average."
Pros: "Again lovely food and crew. Same good seats as the A350 from LHR."
Cons: "Boarded and ready on time but 1hr delay for ATC reasons . The A330's a bit short of toilets requiring a 'queueing system' at busy times. Probably not the actual airline's fault but the ground handlers at AKL took an hour to produce my bags meaning me missing a connecting internal flight."
Cons: "Seemed very crammed seat-wise. There was was no entertainment system system so one star is stretching it."
Pros: "Food was mostly very nice."
Cons: "The Manila transfer process was a waste of time. Why when only transferring through at the airport you must go to an insecure area to get a Manila stamp in your passport and then have to go back into the secure area via another security check."
Pros: "Flight started out by being delayed. I thought we would be delayed at least one hour plus. Did a great job delay time was only 30 min. Then everything was seamless. Great job of getting us to our destination on time."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable and small. My knees were in the seat in front of me the entire thing. I was in a middle seat and was elbowed by the guests on either side of me. Luckily, they were nice. The flight attendants were really unorganized during meal service. Some people had no drink until after their meal. The food was average. They played Infinity Wars, which was cool, but you had to watch as people get in get up and move around."
Pros: "The crew were pleasant."
Cons: "The flight was terrible. The boarding process was improperly conducted causing a lack of overhead space in the baggage storage overhead. The entertainment system was broken and the flight transfer process was terrible and confusing. I had the worst trip in over 300 life time trips. I felt like the price was way too high for the service I received! I need a partial refund at a minimun."
Pros: "I love watching all the movies"
Cons: "Flight delays several hours. Its a very terrible flight. No apology from airlines company too."
