Pros: "Flight attendant Hazeem was great."
Cons: "The state of the plane, communication with patrons, literally everything else could have been better. Willingness to work with patrons after their airline caused patrons to miss other flights. It was absolutely a nightmare and i will be contacting your office."
Cons: "Nothing staff was wonderful"
Cons: "Terrible food.. must need improvement"
Pros: "An easy quick trip. My flight was mostly empty at 1130pm."
Pros: "Friendly staff Entertainment Aircraft"

Cons: "Very courteous"
Cons: "90 min check in is hardly acceptable and indeed nerve recking"
Cons: "Entertainment (i couldn't watch anything because my screen wasn't working"
Cons: "my seat was broken"
Pros: "Flight was on time and the handling of the plane by the pilots was good"
Cons: "While the plane was a Dreamliner, the quality of the seats, and the space in the seats didn't fit the the usual Dreamliner quality. The toilet facilities were terrible ... urine on the floors that made them sticky and horrifically stinky. Only two food service events during the 13 hours ... the first was OK, but the second was really sub par (a sandwich and a granola bar only)/.The available entertainment choices of movies were really lacking compared to other airlines. My first seat assignment had to be changed, because the man set to be sitting next to me began murmuring and cursing when he found out that I was to be next to him. My second seat assignment had me sitting in front of a man, who angrily refused to let me recline my seat at all, because it would crowd his leg space. Therefore I had to sit perfectly straight for all 13 hours of the flight. There were no other aisle seats for me to switch to. Most airlines offer eye shades and earplugs for the long haul flights. Not this one. Both were needed on this rather noise, chaotic flight. I guess you get what you pay for ... the cheap fare is not worth it. I don't intend to fly this airline again."

Cons: "Too short to judge"
Pros: "Everything was excellent. After reading some reviews I was a bit reluctant but every was great on board. Great crew with great food."
Cons: "I didn't like how disorganised the on ground staff was when boarding. Also as a family of 7 we should have sat altogether and not scattered around the aircraft."
Cons: "crew was RUDE!!"
Pros: "Boarding was no frills and quick, service onboard the plane was an orange juice, however, it’s a 45 min flight and didn’t expect much else. No entertainment onboard."
Cons: "This grievance has to do with AMM airport. If you have a connecting flight, you will have to clear customs with your hand luggage and go to departures, you will have to go through security checks again and passport control, our connecting flight was 35 mins from arrival and we had to run to make it."
Pros: "Horrible airport security measures- missed flight Kayak failed to assist. Airlines and airports horrible in assistance"

Cons: "I thought the Crown Lounge in Amman (RJ's hub) was shockingly poor."

Cons: "The RJ fleet is in need to get new aircrafts and an upgrade of their protect is important."
Pros: "I was quite happy with the space the seats offered in coach! I stand 6'2" and I was quite comfortable. Even when the person confront of me tilted there seat back I still had room to stretch my legs for our 10h journey home. I was also very happy the ticket I had purchased came with a complimentary stay at the airports hotel and a free meal. This was fantastic considering my layover in Amman was 11hs. It was very clean & the staff were very helpful and polite."
Cons: "Not having the option of which meal I would like. They just popped down infront of you what ever they grabbed ."
Cons: "They wont let us pray. It's a Muslim airline. And yet they refused us to perform our obligatory prayers. Also we had ordered special meal for all 5 of us. We only got 3."
Cons: "After we landed, me and my wife had to wait for 2 hours to get our luggage. Once we arrived home and started unpacking, we realized that the one of the suitecases must have been opened, as we found one piece of a pair of shoes that does not belong to us, one of the plastic bags in our suitecase was torn, my wife’s makeup was thrown apart in the suitcase and 3 of our perfume bottles were missing. I’m not sure if they were stolen or were misplaced during the most incompetent and disrespectful suitcase search ever. We were really disappointed and felt violated."
