Read more about Emirates
Cons: "Everything!! My seat was not extra wide, it was broke and would not recline...14hr flight!! Entertainment system didn’t work right."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "Better food and cooked throughly and better seat and more blankets."
Pros: "Seats were really comfortable, able to lean back further than most, with large screens and good entertainment options. Also liked that there were open areas on the plane that you could go stand up and stretch out for a while at."
Cons: "About halfway through the flight the bathrooms definitely needed cleaned. By the end of the flight they were disgusting, with toilets and sinks clogged and no tissue. I'm really surprised Emirates allowed this to happen, because everything else was great."
Cons: "The boarding process at Addis Ababa airport was late, slow and very disorganized. Once on the plane, it was very chaotic as passengers did not wait for people to put bags in the overhead bin without passing by, and not all overhead bins were open for loading. Please control this process better."
Pros: "Amazing crew. Seat upgraded to business class. Superb service and comfort!"
Pros: "Inflight entertainment was good but that doesn’t make up for lack of equal treatment of all passengers"
Cons: "They are racist!!!!! Segregation and all!!!!! For my more than 12 hours layover I had to pay for my own hotel!!! Yet other travelers were given free hotel vouchers. As a matter of fact I was kept waiting for nearly half an hour in the middle of the night even though I had been waiting for service ahead of them."
Cons: "The entertainment was giving some issues and the staff tried to resolve it. Eventually it came right by it self..."
Cons: "Cabin crew were reluctant offering passengers liquids on board we had to go and find them to ask for either water or juice as it was a long Flight which took 15 Hours on Air"
Cons: "The flight attendants had been un attentive. I was missing a headset so I asked for one, but I never got it. I borrowed that of the person seated next to me. When it was time for serving hot beverages, I skipped tea and waited for the coffee. However, the flight attendant who was serving the coffee never looked my way, and she passed so fast before I got the chance to signal her. Afterwards, I asked three other flight attendants and even though they said they would come back with the coffee, they never did. Finally, when I was about to get up and head to the crew cabin, one flight attendant came by and I pointed to her that I wasn't offered coffe so I was about to go and see if I could get a cup of coffee from the cabin. She said that I didn't need to get up for that and she would get it to me. They eventually brought that coffee one hour after my first request."
Pros: "The crew was great and helped make it easier with young children - the entertainment for children was also very diverse -"
Cons: "The children meal was not wonderful. But as I only had one and two children - they shared an adult and child meal - which was okay."
Cons: "Neither departure terminal nor gate was displaying in the application even while refreshing it continuously. The information was available in schiphol airport website 3.5 hours before take-off time."
Pros: "Everything was great. Staff of ground services for last security hand bags and passengers checks, documents final checks and all were with great flow, smiles and so professional. Hospitality from cabin crew, cleanliness, food portions and taste were great. Comfortable seats and elite shading side windows. Everything was sooo great. This really escalades recommendations for EgyptAir"
Cons: "The heavy touch down upon landing, could have been a little bit smoother. That was not a big deal at all."
Cons: "Flight was late, if you have another connection, bad luck. No entertainment system, no screens at all, no music. Food was average. Plane was new airbus, toilet stuck, nobody seem to care much at least lock the toilet as it cannot be used."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Egypt air is one of the worst airlines in the world so everything could have been better. Literally everything"
Pros: "Timing and Food"
Cons: "Out of 50 international flights in the past 5 years, this is the first time on EGYPTAIR. They lost one piece of luggage."
Pros: "The seat, the space, the crew and the window"
Cons: "For the food, not all of the people eating eggs.. some of them vomit because of it."
Pros: "The plane was clean and cool with good legroom in the exit row."
Cons: "It was TERRIBLE that at check-in when i found out that the only one piece of baggage was allowed. I have ALWAYS had two bags on this flight."
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "The plane was old, the seats were uncomfortable with no adjustable headrest or flaps to hold your head from flopping. There was no personal entertainment screens on the back of the seats, only the small community one mounted on the roof. The sound for this was terribly unclear. 8 hour boring flight."
Pros: "Didn't like anything"
Cons: "Old aircraft, rude crew, terrible food and by far the worst in-flight entertainment"
Pros: "This flight was on time and the in-flight service was really nice. I really appreciate it when Egypt Air flights are on time. Thank you."

Cons: "Well done"
Pros: "Seat comfy, entertainment program plenty, and hosting staff very friendly and professional. I particularly loved the prayer area in the back of the plane."
Cons: "Hot food is not great, and lacks the veggies essential to any healthy diet. Even the salad offered with the meals was not tasty."
Cons: "The airport in Jeddah was overcrowded, dirty, chaotic and the men’s room was not clean and was stinky"
Pros: "The Saudi planes are relatively new and quiet. The seat pitch in coach is acceptable as there were plenty of empty seats on the flight. They offered free connection for texting apps which is nice to have. The entertainment selection was broad enough, but I did not use."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for over 3 hours without a good explanation. Saying a flight is late because of a late incoming flight is a circular argument - we're late because we're late."
Cons: "After 6 hrs of serving us the first meal they served us, literally, a chicken FLAVORED piece of toast, they called it a sandwich, with a cup of tea. Then we had to wait another 6 hrs before we were served a meal. Never EVER had an experience like that before."
Cons: "Departed at 1310 o e hour late and all that time insid the plane"

Cons: "Lounge seating and services. Boarding. Lots of uncontrollable people trying to be first to board."
Pros: "The crew practically ignored my request for medical aid. They were not friendly and super occupied. The seats were too uncomfortable."

Pros: "The crew were ok but took ages to help you"

Cons: "The most unprofessional ground staff I have met coupled with the most disorganised airport"
Pros: "Staff was pretty helpful and you could mostly get what you needed if you didn't mind going back to the galley for it."
Cons: "Boarding was literally unsafe (too many people going down an escalator into too small an area). Terribly bland food. Buttons on the seat rest too easy to push accidentally (for things like the light or to call a flight attendant)."
Pros: "The plane was spacious"
Cons: "-The flight entertainment wasn't working -There was a delay, but no one from the airline communicated; we were just waiting and the waiting area didn't have sits"
Pros: "Ground stuff was trying tobe very helpful but it ended with trying. Also they did not inform us about he change of stoping in Cairo"
Cons: "Old airport that is uncomfortable with bad lounges that are not even worth going into."
Cons: "Plane didn’t hold, even though I would have made it if they waited 10 minutes, and surely they knew I was coming from a delayed flight caused by Ethiopian and left anyways. Now have to take 3 extra flights and will miss a train at my final destination."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "The waiting time in the cold area just in front of the door of the plane."
Pros: "the flight was pleasant and the airport terminal was empty. Pure joy."
Cons: "boarding was not good, all times using buses. people inter plant from back entrance and front entrance and they meet at middle of plane with a lot of delay."
