Pros: excellent crew, helped me through my nerves about flying
Cons: would have loved to sit upstairs in the bar area.
Pros: Was able to switch to an open row dubai to jfk. Nice crew..good food..veggie choices.
Cons: Jfk-mia..held for gate 1 hr..
Pros: Food was good but served in a unorganized manner, drinks and food was not sequentially served as normally.
Cons: The flight attendants were not polite and difficult to understand. They closed two of the lavatories for themselves. I’m not impressed with Emirates.
Pros: crew responding to the request, supportive
Cons: food was just ok, not excellent. movie selection was not really top notch, just so-so...
Pros: The crew was wonderful. The food was excellent.the seats was comfortable.
Cons: The whole boarding process was lengthy and totally unnecessary with the extra steps
Cons: Only one person in a three row and it was a great flight
Pros: Inflight entertainment was superb, catering in main cabin was also excellent. The crew was friendly and professional.
Cons: Main cabin seats were definitely better than other airlines, but still not the most comfortable for 8+ hours.
Cons: No need for improvement
Cons: Kids food. Chairs weren't comfortable until I reclined it back. Felt like I was bending forward when in the upright position.
Cons: Two teenage passengers were in front of us, extremely disruptive and loud the entire flight and no one from the crew addressed it or asked them to keep the noise down. Also, we were forced to check our carry on bags bc they weighed at check in- though we had already checked in online, more than 7kg!
Cons: Food could be tastier. But, you can’t starve
Cons: Vegan food was served with BUTTER how can this be vegan? NEED MORE Healthy options instead of Pan cakes etc made of Enriched Flour... Upgrades have become.alsmost nil. Emirates is making a huge profit but is not sharing with its passengers... had to wait one whole hour to get our baggage
Cons: It was good service by emirates
Cons: Requested an aisle seat at the front or an emergency seat and got neither. I could hardly move my long legs. That the flight was long did not help matters. I was sandwiched between two other travelers on a three-seater arrangement. Again, is it just on flights to Kenya or other African countries that passengers DO NOT receive the travel pouch?
Cons: The plane is great but the young gentlemen next to me is 300lb+(my best guest He's at least 6'2" possibly in his teen or early 20s) Don't get me wrong but to sit in coach for 14 hours with him in the middle seat is kind of a nightmare. Half of the way we all went to a bathroom and I don't blame him but the bathroom must be to small to clean up himself for I have to sit with feces smell for the rest of the flight. Imagine that. This is my second leg of this long flight from BKK to NYC. The first leg to dubai is horrible enough but this one top that by far!!!!
Cons: Food was bland, repetitive (poor choice and variety) Crew was unwelcoming. Had to ask multiple times for water, soda and also take away plates I have travelled emirates before so this flight was bad compared to previous experiences
Cons: again the boarding was an issue. the boarding time was listed at 1:45 am and we arrived at the gate then but there were no announcements about the flight and then the sign said final boarding call. Also for a 14 hour flight there needs to be bottles of water handed out and someone should be on board to clean the rest rooms half way thru the trip
Pros: Seating space in the plane
Cons: The crew was quite rude. My flight got cancelled and the next day there was no veg food in the flight. It’s a 14 hour flight for god’s Sake!
Cons: I am a 76 yr old traveller, did not get the change in flight schedule until I booked my flight. I was at Dubai airport for over 12 hours waited for the 3AM flight that took another 14 hours. Very stressful and tiring. There was not even a proper accommodation for this very long wait between flights. This experience will be told to all my friends and trust me it will be a very bad, negative endorsement.
Cons: Very noisy for passengers sitting by crew area. Crew seats were used very frequently and every time it opened and closed it slammed waking up passengers.
Pros: Loved the service. My flight was from NYC to Milan.
Cons: There was not one thing.
Pros: On time, entertainment good crew
Cons: Food was bland
Pros: The service from the airline Emirates, very nice and friendly staff. The price was under my budget and easy to purchase. Alerts for flight, time lines and updates for Airports after the Huricane Irma. Thanks! Javier
Pros: Everything except boarding and internet
Cons: Boarding was chaotic they need to have better communications... it was a free for all! I did not at all like the way they make you think you are getting free wifi but in reality it's a hoax!
Cons: I've never flown Emirates and boarding section of the trip was very confusing. There was no audible instructions and they used flip-boards to indicate which group should be boarding. It was very difficult to see the flip-boards since the attendants holding them up were around 5'2". All was well once i got on the plane.
Pros: Choice of movies was good
Cons: Changed flights in Dubai but there were not enough or easy directions. Could not hear boarding announcements due to announcement issues. Crew who served were rude and not useful most time, except couple of crew members. Ear phone not working, took a while after asking to get new one. Food was cold and poor - did not have second bite on most food. Crew serving was as if they were in training (must be) Cramped seat, which did not recline much, which was unusual for Emirates. Glad to be out of that plane.
Pros: customer service of crew was good.
Cons: there were many who were selected for extra screening (code SSS) this process added a great amount of confusion (without any communication) we were screened and put in an isolation area where we were not allowed to leave or use a bathroom. We were there for over one hour. at one point, we were moving into a long tube like structure where we stayed for at least 30 minutes while others were boarding from an different ramp. the communication was non existent and we were made to feel like prisoners. actually, we were prisoners.
Pros: For starters, the seats were decently comfortable. They were wide, and offered generous legroom. The food was good: an unbelievable improvement from the previous flight (I recommend the chicken). The ICE system was impeccable. It had a wide selection of movies, TV shows, and games as well as access to the news. However, the flight's greatest perk my have been the compassionate crew. They were very helpful and friendly. They offered many accommodations, like a pizza and photo, all for free. Overall, the flight went very well.
Cons: Although I enjoyed the flight, the only bad part was the boarding process. To start off, the departure in Milan was delayed for about 45 minutes. Also, when boarding finally began, the line was extremely long and moved very slowly. That was the only event that marred the flight to JFK.
Pros: Impecable! Not too many announcements! Absolutely gorgeous plane, great crew, good bathrooms, comfy seats, more room, the plane is so huge you don't feel a take off or landing. Easy pleasant check in process. Thank you!
Cons: The food, well I rarely eat on a plane, but some times its a bit better than the others. Vegan options could be good option as i don usually trust meat or fish on a plane! The touch screen doesn't feel the "touch" lots of times
Pros: This two legged journey on Emirates was my first experience with this airline and the impression was an excellent one. Entebbe - Dubai - JFK went smoothly and comfortably.
Cons: Front legs little short
Pros: Efficient, clean, friendly
Pros: The in flight entertainment and food was enjoyable. Overall service of the crew was excellent.
Cons: I flew from Singapore to New York with a 1 hour 15 minute layover in Dubai. Passengers with layovers were instructed to be at the next gate 45 minutes in advance of boarding. This was seemingly impossible and cause myself and many other passengers severe anxiety running through the airport. The first flight landed 10 minutes late in Gate C, took another 10-15 minutes to off board, at which point we were held by a flight attendant who later guided us to get on a bus to take us between terminal A and C. The entire trip between gates was approximately 30 minutes and we inexplicably had to pass through security 3 times during the layover. It seemed poorly organized and myself and other passengers just made the second flight before the doors closed.
Pros: Compared to other airlines, especially trips to and from Europe, this one was great! I will try to fly Emirates every time! I especially appreciated the variety and abundance of choices for entertainment. Eight hours just flew.
Cons: As far as a reasonably priced economy flight, I can't think of a think. Of course, I'd always like a bigger seat but even those were better than most.
Pros: I would like to say this is the most horrific experience I have ever had traveling and using Kayak. I was late by 10 mins getting to the ticket counter and Emirates gave my seat away. I then proceeded to attempt to rebook and the Emirates agent advised they are sold out for the next 3 days and have no flight alternatives to offer. I contact flight network and the person I spoke proceeds to tell me the same thing and there is nothing they can do for me. Basically that I would need to purchase a whole new ticket on another airline as Emirates doesn't have availability. Which I did. Now I'm looking online and Flight Network has my exact flight on Emirates available at same price I paid for my ticket. But now my new ticket purchased to get home is non-refundable. I'm out over 1000 dollars because of bad info. This has been a horrific experience and after being loyal to Kayak for years.... I will never use the site again.
Pros: Better plane with much better entertainment system. Decent food. Once I had missed my connecting flight because of the flight delay, they promptly arranged for a hotel to stay at, as there wasnt another flight to NYC for 12 hrs. Otherwise I would have been really pissed.
Cons: First time I have had mediocre crew on an emirates flight. The guy serving my section was not particularly friendly, had a bit of an attitude problem and spent a little too much time chatting up an attractive female passenger. Again, disorganized boarding process. First time I have experienced such terrible service on emirates.
Pros: Very good airline with professional stafff and much better comfort than most other airlines
Cons: The food was pretty bad. I didn't even eat on the return flight.
Pros: I liked the customer service, entertainment, flight Attendants, food and everything that Emirates has to offer! I felt like I was in first class while in coach!!!
Cons: The duration of the flight was extremely long and that made me uncomfortable and it was hard to sleep.
Pros: Nice flight
Cons: time delay at Dubai Airport
Pros: The attendants were great at keeping the cabin clean and were very goo with the kids. Loads of activities and unexpected surprises that really pleased my kids.
Cons: More regular offerings of drinks.
Pros: See above. Great airline all around. We travel a lot and overall it is one of the two best in the world on almost all counts.
Cons: For large number of passengers, boarding is impossibly slow. I don't understand why, after boarding the priority passengers, airline don't board the rest of us from the back of the plane to the front. Doing it the other way makes us stumble across the front seated passengers who are busy stowing their carry-ones. This causes a bottleneck in boarding. Also, there are too many checks on us, which also slows things down. Also, Emirates advertises: one carry-on item of less than 15 pounds. On this flight I would say that at least 75% of the passengers violated this with large and multiple carry-ons. This is unfair to those of us who try to go by the rules.
Pros: Emirates has a great reputation, and now I've experienced first hand why that is! Great (complimentary!) food and beverages, clean comfortable seats, generous luggage policies, and impressive customer service. The crew on our flight represented 19 different countries and spoke a total of 19 different different languages. The woman ahead of me was very unpleasant about her screen not working, and every attendant she spoke to was infinitely polite and pleasant. They tried to reset her screen, and eventually found an empty seat and moved her to first class!
Cons: Only that I can't take an Emirates airbus for all of my flights! I was detained for awhile during boarding because I was chosen to have my carry-on bag checked, and it took awhile because I had filled a water bottle after passing through security and it took some discussion before being approved (my husband didn't know where I was and had already boarded and was worried).
Pros: Food and staff service
Cons: Everything was great
Pros: Outstanding, professional, courteous, and highly capable staff; beautiful plane; extremely tasty food; generous beverage offerings; smooth flight, including take-off and landing. Kudos to the entire crew and to the Emirates Airline organization.
Cons: The seats were very comfortable, but the leg room was inadequate.
Pros: The food was good.
Cons: The bathrooms were dirty and some of the staff were unprofessional. they dropped food boxes and trays on passengers including me.
Pros: Friendly staff and variety of entertainment
Cons: Everything was good.
Pros: Everything was Excellent
Pros: Nothing is better service, food , beverage, everything is not good
Cons: Change with food quality
Cons: Packed plane. No social distancing!
Cons: food could been more better.
Cons: This is my first flight with Turkish Airlines. It is much better than every Europe Airline company. Until the Covid19 pandemic is over I will not fly to Europe with any European company. Turkish Airline are that good. On top of that you get to transport two big bags of luggage for free.
Pros: The crew very a mezzaning
Cons: Its was bad service. I know its covid but they could have done better. My friends relative took emirates and qatar. There flight was excellent as usal.
Cons: Horrible food, crew wasn’t nice
Cons: Cheep no food
Pros: Good cleaning impressions.
Cons: The food catering was mediocre, food was serve on prepackaged boxes instead of hot meals. No alcoholic drinks or other refreshments were offer due to Covid.
Cons: The food was terrible. Turkish airlines used tp have great food. I understand the cold sandwiches are because of Covid but they could have been much better.
Pros: The crew was nice. But it took forever to get our luggage when we arrived. We waited half an hour!
Cons: The luggage took forever to come out after we landed at JFK. Also, the quality of the food was not good on the plane.
Cons: Air circulation on the jfk ist flight was absent and my wife almost suffocated and has to get closer to an exit door to get some air. Last time to use turkish airline
Pros: Crew was perfect, seat was great
Cons: All is well.
Pros: excellent crew, food entertainment and seats
Cons: They were the best among the airlines I ever used
Pros: TK escorted us from the delayed flight from Dubai through security to ensure we made the connection
Cons: The temperature on the flight was a bit too cold. I don't like the airlines that trade out the nice headsets for earbuds at the end of a flight. Change the process so we don't have to swap
Cons: I am always having seating issues flaying on Turkush Air . MOs of my flight my seats are next to bathrooms. I asked to be moved. Luckily there was a seat available. This is just too many times. I wanted to get Turkish Air credit card. After my experience with last flight I am RE consider this. regards IHarel.
Cons: Food may become better. Not twice meat, especially not late at night. Give an option for an omelet for example
Pros: Again, food and service in business class were superb. A newer 777 and more comfortable lie-flat seats
Cons: Business class gets only one small lavatory.
Pros: Overall flight was good. The flight was on time, the boarding was smooth, the entertainment was excellent. I would like to thank crew for their work
Cons: As a family it was a big disappointment that we got seated in a different row. The check in person didn’t even made an effort to put us together just suggested that we can ask to switch on a plane. Another big disappointment was food Please bring the food quality back
Cons: They lost my baggage. The in-flight crew and food is excellent, ground support is not good.
Pros: Thr A330 has 32" pitch which was ok. The 2-4-2 seating made this less of an issue. Food was ok. Screens are decent and responsive.
Cons: It's 32" for a 10 hour flight. Not really comfortable and enjoyable, and a squeeze throughout.
Pros: I had a seat in the front row of the economy section so I had a lot of leg room. They kept the toilets maintained (cleanliness, supplies) throughout the flight.
Cons: It was a 10hr flight and we were fed only twice... full meals at the top & bottom of the flight. There were no snacks or drink service in-between... a 6hr stretch. I fly a lot internationally and that was quite unusual and unwelcome. They also ran out of food
Pros: I like your entertainment system, but the cushions on the headset were not the best.
Cons: The boarding was not organized. I was in Group C. We were chained behind a rope. Boarding started and when the agent nearest to us didn't get a passenger quickly he started to take Group D! I did not appreciate that. This continued throughout boarding. Also, as to be expected!, as newer people joined the the lines they went to the line moving - not their Group line. So we stood behind the rope on C while everyone else was boarding. I finally jumped to the moving line. I was tired of waiting. The kosher meals were warm, but not hot. There is no reason for this. I have been flying International for over 20 years and I know what is possible. The seats - for a 10 hour flight - were uncomfortable. Either I need more padding on my rear end or you need better seats.
Pros: The flight was on time
Cons: The boarding process was not orderly
Cons: Flight was delayed 4 hours. Given that you don't usually book onward travel with Turkish, it made a mess for me--doubled my cost to get the rest of the way home.
Cons: We were traveling with our 1 year old. On any other flight, we've been given seats with extra legroom and a bassinet when available. Turkish airlines put us crammed in a window and middle seat for a 9 hour flight. It was absolutely un-doable. Everyone around us realized this and tried to help as we asked the flight attendant to help us and she said that I should ask other people to move around not her. We had to go around the plane begging people who were sitting with a bassinet and no baby to trade seats with us. It was an absolutely horrible experience. It was the airline's mistake, and we were the ones forced to try to fix it. Yes, we got a bassinet eventually, but not before we saw how mean and selfish other passengers could be pretending not to hear us and ignoring us. And no help from the crew.
Pros: never turkish airlines ever again!
Cons: never turkish airlines ever again!
Pros: I am not blaming the airline at all for these inconveniences.
Cons: NOTE: THIS IS NOT A CRITIC OF THE AIRLINE Having personally experienced the latest in the consequences of travel related rules mandated by US public officials, I am yet again left wondering if they, and their families, go through these rules that they impose on the general public. Or if they just breeze into their private airport wings and planes. I doubt they take off shoes, belts, and such, or go through irradiated machines. But going through about 3 extra layers of security while transiting is a bit much. Not to mention the extra hours spent relinquishing and reclaiming laptops etc. Frankly, non of these acts makes anything safer. It is akin to the permanently parked police vehicle on the Brooklyn Bridge in NYC since 9-11. What is that supposed to deter?
Pros: Staff and food. Also great selection of movies
Cons: No complaints
Pros: The care taken to wrap the electronic equipment you were mandated to confiscate. That part was handled well
Cons: Retrieving the electronic equipment was a chaotic nightmare. There was no order. There were two lines where passenger did line up in than others cut the line claiming they had connecting flights. Those in charge never verified whether they were connecting to another flight. Never asked for their boarding pass. I heard some laughing saying they did no have connecting flights. I better job and method of handling this situation is needed as long as the ban is in effect. Otherwise, Turkish airlines is fine. My wife and I have traveled most airlines and travel extensively. So, we are aware of good service and bad. Your service minus the electronic equipment is good.
Pros: Everything was great. Seats were comfortable, the Entertainement was great and the food was very good. Plus, sat next to great people.
Cons: There was nothing I didn't like.
Cons: I had a problem and I was not able to fly. I bought insurance and I tried to contact them, but they denied my request and I would definitely recommend to remove this option because it doesn't give a good image of KAYAK. If I want to trust this application, I have to be confident to use the services and I service from the insurance was fake. I tried to reach the airline to cancel my ticket and they said it's not refundable. Therefore, I would definitely recommend showing refund options when selling tickets. I lost every penny I spent because I was not able to fly. I am sure that my message is delivered now!!!!
Cons: Airline should advise during check in- especially on line check in there are no electronics on board. This caused significant delay and annoyance for about 100+ passengers
Cons: This time the food was a disappointment. I had ordered a vegan meal and the hot course was dried up pasta, no protein.
Pros: Checking in personal Irem such a rude person who lies to clients. She lied me about checking bag and choosing sit also. I asked her to talk to her supervisor and she show me the girl sitting next to her was doing checking in also name is Bahar. I am 6'1" and 190 lbs and asked for exit row and they both told me all of them gone already. The thing is funny when I asked checking in was just began. After boarding I realized some exit sits are available. As a Turkish man who worked JFK for.Turkish airlines, I think this was awful experience. Turkish airlines and passengers deserve better service and honest employees
Pros: I love how Turkish Airlines is such a pleasant flying experience and how everything is included in the price. Delicious meals that are better than going to a restaurant, the head rests that bend in so you can sleep with or without a neck pillow (I had absent-mindedly packed my pillow in my baggage and was delighted to discover these), the little pouch of goodies (socks, slippers, toothbrush and toothpaste, eyemask, lip balm, ear plugs), and the pleasantness of the crew are all highlights for me. And I was delighted by the magical flight safety video! Thank you also for passing out little sweets on New Year's - that was such a lovely touch and appreciated. Everyone who has flown Turkish agrees it's the best!
Pros: love how nice the crew is, and how they treat everyone with courtesy, and security conscience also
Cons: I find the a b c d to board very difficult, sometimes you get a and sometimes you get d, and if you get c or d is a big mess, as mayority of passengers are there, I don t find it very organized and nobody in line seems to be happy with boarding, everything else excellent
Pros: The inflight service was wonderful. Business class comfort is excellent with full lie flat seats, Crew was attentive. My special vegetarian food was very good using the usual airline fare I receive.
Cons: The arrival into Istanbul was marked by a major inconvenience unnecessary anxiety, extra expense and frustration. On deplaning from a flight from Barcelona, a Turkish Airlines employee was checking boarding cards the connectivity flight and directed people to the appropriate exits for domestic and international connection. We had a connection to JFK and tried to enter the exit for international connections. She insisted that we go to the domestic exit despite my telling her we had an international connection. This led to passport control which had never occurred to me anywhere in the world when making an international connection. Next problem - I was told I needed a visa! My travel partner did not need a visa and was already through passport immigration control. The officer did not speak English and pointed in the direction I needed to go to get a via. I told him I did not want or need a visa but that was it! I started to look for the visa application area and there was no staff or anyone to help. Finally I found 4 kiosks for e-visas - only one worked. 20 plus dollars later I had the visa and immigrated. We quickly reverse the process and went though security and passport control to get back inside the international terminal. It was nuts! The boarding in Istanbul was crowded and chaotic.
Pros: Food and entertainment were good. Crew was pleasant and attentive. Flying in business class with them is always nice. There was a lof of leg room and nice seats that go almost fully reclining.
Cons: Where to start from? Got off the plane from the flight from Barcelona to Istanbul, to connect to New York and first thing this woman insists that me and my friend should go to exit and baggage claim instead of international transfers. My friend had to get a visa at check out and all the trouble of trying to get back into the gate simply because of a STUPID AIRPORT STAFF who doesn't know what they are doing. I have had trouble before with airport staff who doesn't know what they are doing or give wrong directions. That is why will avoid flying with them to Europe.
Pros: Easy to get exit row seat, very nice crews, good food incl. free wine.
Cons: Istambul Intl. Airport: Wifi requires a code to be sent to a working cell phone. It never worked for me (and that on 6hrs+ layovers there) and obviously people with only a pc or iPad/ipod/iphone without working sim card are screwed. If you offer free wifi, don't add ridiculous requirements that no one can fulfill.
Pros: Although there was only one option for meals, they were good nevertheless. The entertainment on Turkish Airlines is the best I've ever seen on any international airline. There are so many options and the layout is new and modern.
Cons: Compared to my flight from New York to Istanbul, my flight from Istanbul to New York was less wonderful. The crew was not as attentive and was not helpful in assisting the grandmother who was sitting next to me with her 2-year-old grandson who wanted to know if another seat was available. There was only once choice for the meals, which I found odd on a long international flight, but I did enjoy the meals. The plane was older than the one I took from New York and were less comfortable. I don't usually have a problem with legroom (I'm pretty average height at 5'5"), but the legroom on this flight was noticeably smaller.
Pros: The cabin crew were super friendly, attentive, and accommodating on our flight. Upon boarding the flight, pillows, blankets, and earbuds were awaiting us on our seats. During the flight, the crew handed out Turkish delights, lemon-scented hot towels, and sleep-care bag full of goodies (like ear plugs, slippers, etc.). The entertainment system had quite a selection of music, TV shows, movies, and games! Though it's always uncomfortable sitting on a plane for an international flight, I felt our Economy seats had a little more legroom than most, and there was definitely a lot of stuff to do on the plane if you didn't want to sleep.
Cons: The second meal I had, eggplant pasta, tasted terrible along with the beans. The only redeeming factor was the yogurt! In addition, the A/C was surprisingly on low, and for the first time, I became hot on the flight - not that I really minded. It was just a different experience. We also took off an hour after we boarded, which I thought was strange.
Cons: We missed our flight from Istanbul to New York. The gate was changed while we were waiting at the assigned gate. No announcements were made about the gate change. We ended up stranded in Istanbul. The Turkish Airlines representatives were very rude and not helpful at all. They told me that we needed to purchase new tickets. My 14 year old and I were in Istanbul, Turkey with no way home. After hours on the phone with their customer service and many repeated phone calls and many collect phone calls to the United States, my mother was finally able to secure new plane tickets for $2000 one way for us to return to the states. We were in the airport for 24 hours before we could board a flight to make our way home. A few days after we arrived back is when the terrorist attacks occurred. I have been plagued with flashbacks of our time in the Istanbul airport. I feel that Turkish Airlines could have done a better job at trying to accommodate us in a time of desperation. I have been reluctant to contact them upon my return and a friend offered to call on my behalf and was treated in the same disrespectful manner. I would hate to think that Turkish Airlines could be representative of the people of Turkey. I can't imagine that Turkey or the citizens of this beautiful country could treat visitors in such a fashion. I appreciate your time in reading about our personal and devastating experiences during our trip that was to have been the trip of a lifetime with my son.
Pros: Wide variety of movies.
Cons: Firstly, our daughter's personal TV monitor stopped working about an hour into the flight. We asked for the TV monitor to be fixed on three different occasions and nothing was done about it so we had to share our monitor for the remainder of the 10 hour flight. Secondly, we were the last to be served even we though we were seated in the middle of the plane. When they finally got to us they didn't have anymore of the selection that we wanted so we had to settle for what was left. When we finally got our food it was ice cold! We had to ask for another plate. By this point we were starving and very upset. Overall, our experience wasn't the most ideal.
Pros: The in flight entertainment was great
Cons: Boarding process was delayed and there were no updates to tell us about it. I was feeling ill and asked a crew member for water she told me she would run and get it and I saw her walking around for 45 minutes before I asked her again and it took her another 30 minutes. In that time I watched her fulfill requests for headphones and other unecessary items. We were sat directly behind a screaming baby and directly in front of 3 wildly misbehaving children for the entire 10 hr flight. The crew allowed the family behind us to sit 5 people to the 4-person row, including a 7-year old sitting on the mom's lap who kicked seats and pulled my hair over the top of the seat. I recognize that misbehaved children are not the fault of the airline but it seems like in the future grouping families with children together might be a resolution. We went 10 hours without sleep because the kids kept kicking our seats and sticking their feet through our armrests. The airline also offered zero vegetarian food options for this flight (unlike others which offered pasta). We went 10 hrs having eaten a single bread roll and a bowl of pudding. After these two flights I'll likely never fly Turkish again.
Cons: egyptair flight 985 no space between sets no social distancing very bad not comfortable flight
Cons: Stop feeding us bread
Pros: Seat was weary at 52H. Although there were other empty and more comfortable seats, the crew didn't let me have one.
Cons: Food could have been of fish kind variety and hot drinks weren't available. No hot drinks, neither coffee, nor tea.
Pros: Amazing plane
Pros: The captain
Pros: I liked the new airplane. Compared to my jfk-cai flight the plane was spotless and everything worked. I didn’t feel like I was on a flying greyhound bus. The crew kept the bathrooms cleaner which was great.
Cons: I was very disappointed that I couldn’t bring water through the gate security in Cairo to jfk. There was nowhere to purchase water after the gate so I felt dehydrated and inconvenienced by having to ask for water so many times.
Pros: The crew.
Cons: Terrible business class.
Pros: every thing
Pros: On-time arrival, direct flight
Cons: Poor in-flight service. They said they would give out a snack before landing but never did. If you want a drink other than at meals, you have to go get it yourself.
Pros: Crew was friendly and helpful
Cons: Lack of variety of entertainment movies, shows etc. No WiFi connection. Bathrooms were very dirty
Pros: Amazingly soft landings, as always.
Pros: The seats were comfortable. Entertainment was good. Food was good.
Cons: Having vegetarian meal options would have been great.
Cons: The food
Pros: Direct flight, punctual time. Crew is friendly
Cons: several toilets were out of order (were marked occupied instead of out of order so I was waiting in vain until a passenger informed me it was not working not occupied). food, looked like they were trying to conserve on passengers desserts.. microscopic (toy size) containers for coffee n tea??!
Pros: I didn’t like anything about this airline !! the staff looks miserable I was delayed on all three of my flights! also my luggage was broken by egypt air baggage department
Cons: EVERYTHING ! this was the worst airline I have ever flow !
Cons: That I could check in online instead of the airport, to get to pick the seat I want, I was placed in an isle seat 2 rows before the end of the plane, right behind me the we only 2 seats row, and almost every single one that went to use the restroom had to bump into my chair in their way back
Cons: 4 bags, agent charged me $100 for 12 # excess wt will no not allow me to repack to the lighter “other 3 bags 18 pounds light, total. I think a refund is in order.
Pros: Fully flat seats, friendly crew, good food. Excellent price
Cons: Dated slightly worn seats
Pros: Good price. Direct flight. Decent food.
Cons: Offer more frequent complimentary drinks. Staff talking too loudly at back of plane while passengers trying to sleep.
Pros: Big plane, multiple boarding points. Food did its job & helped with the long flight. Movies weren't expansive, but good choices to kill the time.
Cons: The crew did not have the key to unlock to doors leading to the plane, which forced everyone to wait 30 mins standing in line. It was quite silly! It delayed our flight about 30-45 minutes - not much, but really painful when the flight is almost 12 hours. The crew didn't tell us what was happening either, but it was pretty obvious.
Pros: Direct flight, nice crew and professional pilot, didn’t feel the plane touching the ground while landing
Cons: Definitely not cheap flight ;) Food is no good , bathrooms were not clean and flight crew refused to clean it !!!
Pros: Flights were on time and boarding was orderly
Cons: Vegetarian food was poor. It was just boiled vegetables. Even the bread that was given to others was not there. They treated Vegetarian food as Vegan food (although it was specified as vegetarian), so there was no butter, no yogurt and nothing but boiled vegetables and fruit salad. Hard to sustain oneself with that on a 12 hour flight! I asked the flight attendant for yogurt who just ignored my request.
Pros: The plane was new, roomy and very comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. It was a long flight, and most people slept most of the time.
Cons: It took some effort to find the right check in window for the flight, and it involved a lot of walking around the airport. The selection of movies and tv shows was underwhelming. There was no room to sit in the business lounge.
Cons: Baggage was not logged into the flight, although it was checked in 2 hours before flight...!!!
Pros: every thing thank you
Cons: Great services and very clean air plane
Pros: Excellent experience overall, I would definitely fly again with Egypt Air.
Cons: Only small thing was, I have seen better as far as in flight entertainment. The touchscreen was not responsive and selection not great. I brought my own on a tablet so it wasn't a big deal for me.
Pros: Upgraded to business class at the ticket counter for a very reasonable price- comfort and ease.
Pros: Good meals and equent tea, coffee and water in cups available. Headphones provided for entertainment.
Cons: More garbage pickup needed- computer screens were dirty from previous flight use
Pros: So organized airline
Cons: Head Hosts are aggressive but not so much
Pros: Customer service very very very bad And tickets was too expensive
Pros: Timing perfect on time, curious crew members. .
Pros: Great professional and fast
Cons: Couldnt take my camera in the hand bag which is unreasonable.
Pros: Cheap air fare, i likeed all the services include an easy take off, landing on time, amazing food and crew were kind and comforting all customers on board.
Cons: Cheap air fare, i likeed all the services include an easy take off, landing on time, amazing food and crew were kind and comforting all customers on board.
Pros: I liked everything about the experience on the actual flight from Cairo to New York. Staff was great, food was great (two meals), drink options were great from juices, sodas, water, tea, coffee all great. the entertainment was awesome with so many movie/tv show options. and you can always get up and ask for a beverage if you were still thirsty, and plenty of toilets on the plane so rarely a line greater than 1 person.
Cons: They seemed to run out of chicken as the dinner meal, when they got to my the flight to Cairo from NY they also ran out of chicken, the person next to me got the last one, the same thing happened to me on the way to NY, the person next to me got the last chicken, i was kind of upset but the other option of beef was still good.
Pros: We flew JFK to CAI roundtrip in coach. The whole process from check-in to landing was good overall, and the meals were also of good quality and complimentary as was baggage check-in (compared to US carriers who charge you for everything).
Cons: The bathroom got a little dirtier on the long haul flight compared to what I remember on other carriers, and phone support is only available during business hours which turned out to be ok, but could be a problem if you need to have a question answered last minute.
Cons: Babies crying in nearly every row. No ear plugs provided. Flight attendants not attentive at all. Attitudes for staff left and right. It was a horrible flight. Check in was a headache as well.
Pros: They have some interesting old films like Charlie Chaplin in their silver screen entertainment choices. Accommodating flight attendants.
Cons: There did not seem to be any air vents to adjust for cooling down when I felt hot.
Pros: They make us feel the tickets are discounted, and when you arrive to the airports for international flights which is normally allowed 2 luggage, they informed us we are allowed only one bag and charge for the second bage $125.00 also they told me that my carrying on is too big and charge me another $125.00 . I have had traveled with the same carry on many time but that's the new way of EGYPTAIR scams. Will not travel with them anymore..... They're the worst service, you will only see the cabin crew during the meal time , with almost 12 hrs flight you will see the crew only twice !!!!! The worst experience we ever have
Pros: Staff was attentive and welcoming
Pros: Food and service was good.
Pros: The Crew was excellent and accommodating.
Cons: Long flight ... could not sleep... Not your fault :) I'm very tall so the comfort for me was not as good as it could have been due to limited leg room. Please try to keep us in mind and /or try to get tall folks leg room seats. Thanks.. Happy security was good, but it was a bit slow.
Pros: Pilots are excellent at smooth landing.
Cons: To most Arabs, broadcasting a prayer before taking off is routine and goes without notice. To foreigners, it could initiate fear about the safety of the plane as it projects a need to rely on a super power to make it. It's cultural and could be misunderstood.
Pros: Everything except food
Cons: Food variety could be an order improvement add
Pros: Landing and the crew
Cons: The food was very spicy( Chicken meal)
Pros: Seats are crammed & not comfortable but crew members were nice
Cons: Add WiFi Serve 2 meals flying Amman to JFK
Pros: Crew was not helpful they also spoilt my luggage
Cons: Dealing with people is not fun but they chose to do this not a volunteer work. Customer service at RJ is horrible. The crew was horrible from chicago to Baghdad. They need some people skills.
Cons: Avoid flight delays in the future and respect the flight schedule
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: My bag arriving when I did
Pros: The flights were on time.
Cons: Food could have been better. .
Pros: Professional flight attendants, kept a good schedule of offering refreshments and meals. Such a difficult task to be attentive to a passenger list that probably spoke more than 10 languages. Polite and patient throughout.
Cons: my bag was held in amman. when I was going through customs and my bag didn't appear, I approached a team member who already had my name on a list of people whose bags were delayed.. Would have saved me some time if they called the names of the passengers with delayed bags so we wouldn't be waiting for the bags to appear. I don't know if this is an issue specific to the flight crew or to the airline in general or to the airport but it did cause some grief on my end.
Pros: The food and beautiful women
Cons: The seats
Pros: Crew exceptionally nice
Cons: Tedious security before boarding. Cleanliness could be better.
Pros: Entertainment choices, comfortable seats
Pros: The flight the plane the staff on plane the food the entertainment
Cons: Inspectors checking your personal hand bag with gloves on their hand getting into every pocket.
Pros: Excellent service and better seat space than American airlines. I would fly Royal Jordanian again.
Cons: Website for check in could be more user friendly.
Pros: Amazing exit row seat for free. Really nice crew.
Cons: Bad headphones and small selection of movies to watch
Pros: Boarding was easy. The flight is extremely short so there is no meal or beverage service.
Cons: Plane is heavily dated. There were ashtrays in the arm rest. I could smell cigarette smoke during the flight which caused my allergies to flare.
Cons: I left some baggage on the plane and it has been impossible to reach Royal Jordanian in regards to getting it back. Every phone number leads to a different phone number.
Pros: The plane was clean and food was provided in a timely manner. The bathrooms were well located and I did not have to wait to go. Movie selection was not as expansive as I had expected but was still enough to pass the time.
Cons: The plane seemed to have a signal jammer so I could not send any messages before we pulled out of the gate. Our departing flight was delayed two hours, just sitting on the runway without the screens turned on to let us watch anything. The return flight was unpleasant because we were not able to sit together.
Cons: Informed by email at 9.30 the previous evening that flight was delayed for 3 hours. Delayed at airport for a further hour. There was no explanation or apology. This must have caused major problems for passengers with f;light connections and for the many who had to get up and go to work the next day.
Cons: I missed my flight
Cons: Every terminal seemed normal except for the one that has flight to NY. Although we already went through This terminal we were baggage check/metal detectors, then everyone questioned about why we traveled, bag was hand checked, and we got two body pat downs one after another. Felt really unnecessary. Worst part this terminal is in a glass box so if you leave to use the restroom or get coffee, you gotta go through the process again. A real headache. Movie selection on flight is limited and the seating needs more leg room. I think this airline has the least amount of leg room.
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: The food the service and the flight
Cons: Worse Flight ever seen . they charge me $210 for my handbag when I'm stop in Jordan Air port for connection to fly to US right before the airplane door . they told me if I don't pay they will cancel my ticket .
Pros: Quick. Personal TVs. Cheaper side. Nice fellow passengers.
Cons: Unprofessional crew made a little club house of the last rows of seats, moving passengers so they could make themselves beds. They were Not very helpful or responsive. Lost my luggage. Bad food.
Pros: The kosher meals could use a serious upgrade and the employees on board could be a bit more accommodated when it comes to food and drinks.
Pros: Crew provided better service than crew flying in to Amman
Cons: Boarding, food, and entertainment are three areas need major improvements. One other notice, one of the rest rooms was broken already before take off from Amman.
Pros: Nothing. The flight got delayed by 6 hrs and not even an apology. Food was bad, ill treatment of passengers, and so on and so forth
Cons: Nothing. The flight got delayed by 6 hrs and not even an apology. Food was bad, ill treatment of passengers, and so on and so forth I would not recommend this so lone yo anyone
Pros: The plane was nice and clean.
Pros: Modern air craft
Cons: Poor service Terrible food
Pros: Very New Airplane, very pleasant flight attendants , the food is great and we departure on time. Therefore, I have a amazing flight. Thank you Royal Jordanian
Cons: Everything was owesome
Pros: The aircraft, the service
Cons: I ordered kosher meals and they arrived frozen to a degree I could not eat it. The movies did not have any subtitle options, except Arabic. They should at least have English subtitles
Pros: Our own tvs. Service was friendly. The tint windows are pretty cool. It did create a quieter atmosphere.
Cons: We were in the clear tunnel waiting to board and could see the luggage being checked by dog, next thing, the dog lifted his leg and peed on my luggage. I knew it was mine because it's a very bright lime green. Not happy about that. Everyone in the tunnel saw it too. Food was so so. The snack was a joke, a bun with cheese and one tiny slice of a cucumber. Would've rather had chips or pretzels or cookies.
Cons: Terrible ground staff. Constant change in flight schedules. No support on codeshares. No on ground help for canceled flights. No ability to print all the boarding passes. terrible connection options. Will avoid flying them ever again if possible.
Pros: Attentive crew, good entertainment choices, free headphones
Cons: We arrived with another Royal Jordan flight and went through transit but still had to go through the same security like all the other travelers which led to a total of five security checks for the two flights. Several procedures were done multiple times (swiping computers/cameras/children's toys.) Security personnel didn't explain differences in protocol to other flights/check-in procedures which led to high frustration, e.g., families were separated for individual screenings/pat downs without asking where our small child should go. There were no bathrooms or concessions in the last section where people were waiting right before boarding the flight.
Pros: Crew was very friendly and attentive, food was good, seats are comfortable - great flight!
Pros: More food please
Pros: I like the selection of movies and the timing of the meals and snacks. A great crew did a nice job bringing around water, etc. They picked out a real nice seat for me on the way back home. Middle aisle and no one else in the row so I could move to the middle when the lady behind me kept on kicking the back of my seat. (-: Compared to other flights the RT price was reasonable and I could go direct from NYC into Amman.
Cons: Speaking English only made it hard at boarding to know what was going on but when I went up, I still didn't know if it was my turn or not, the smiled and waved me on.
Pros: Seats were very comfortable. Is a new Dreamliner from NYC to Amman.
Cons: Could hardly hear movies on seatback entertainment system-tried both own and their headphones but finally gave up. Also, not a fan of the window shade that only dims-no real shade-light still comes in. Food is not good and drink choices are poor.
Cons: Friendly service. Very hospitable. Would definitely fly them again.
Pros: Seats were comfortable, staff was extremly friendly
Cons: Boarding the plane was very disorganized on return
Cons: Lack of curtousey of some crew members!
Pros: Crew were helpful most of the time.
Cons: Seating was very poor. The five of our groups where seated in different location, despite booking together as a group.
Pros: Everything was perfect! Food was great!
Pros: The trip at all is fantastic and all the employees and staff are so kind and generous. Good food and good hotel that was provided to me in Amman.
