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.

They lost my bags. In Hong kong, I was told the designated smoking area in the terminal was close and the steward encouraged me to go...I almost missed the flight even though I didn't even make it to where she directed me. It was not close, she was a liar. They lost my bags. They kept calling me sir despite my corrections and obvious female anatomy. They had no remorse or apologies for their errors"

Pros: "Clean ,on time"
Cons: "The movies were not updated"

Cons: "To my flight specifically, it got adjusted without telling me so I ended up missing my final transfer. I was not given a notification for a flight change. Someone met me at the end of my second flight to tell me I missed my connecting flight. With the adjusted flight Singapore gave me, there was no chance I would have made it. They did purchase a ticket for me on another airline to get to San Francisco in the end."

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "-The food was pretty bad -The movie sound quality was bad, and the subtitles didn't work -Not much leg room"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Our train from Chiang Mai was 2 hrs late. Our taxi driver sped us as fast as he could, but we had only 15 min from check in to the airplane take off. The counter personnel were so helpful in calling the gate for permission to board. We ran across the airport and made it thanks to Thai Smile staff."
Cons: "Vegetarian food option"

Pros: "Boarding was super fast and efficient. For a 1,5 hour flight, we were given food and drinks. Can’t find that in the US."
Cons: "Loved everything"

Pros: "Overall service including f Meals and drinks provided on flight and the ground handling and air crew all excellent."
Cons: "None."

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Delay"

Pros: "For a budget friendly airline you can't go wrong with Thai Smile. they were on time, food was provided free, staff was friendly."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Flew out of BKK versus other airport in Bangkok. Easier to connect to international flights. Good service and frequent flights"
Cons: "They have sandwiches on the flights but they weren’t the best quality, I didn’t like what they gave out. We had roaches next to us crawling up the wall on our last flight, ended up finding some food Trash under our seat that was missed. not pleasant."

Pros: "Very good"

Pros: "Great service"

Pros: "Very nice"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful, boarding was easy, flight was smooth"
Cons: "No entetainment, food just a pretty untasty sandwich"

Pros: "smooth as silk"

Cons: "The flight from BKK-VTE did not allow online check-in and had to check in at the airport. The line to check in had 10 people in front of me which then proceeded to take over 1.5 hours to reach the counter. then was the very last person to get on the flight - the plane then didn’t leave for another 30 minutes. Thai Smile managed to make a 1 hour flight to Vientiane turn into a 4-5 hour journey between arriving early, waiting forever in the counter check in line, then being driven to the plane and actually leaving. Bangkok Airways and Air Asia (don meaung) is the better option for this short journey."

Cons: "I had a fracture in my leg several days prior to my trip so had to cancal all. My thai smile tickets were booked with vayama. They r the only suppliers whom declined my request for free cancaltion or even freeze our tickets."

Pros: "Love the AirBus 320, the service, to get all the passengers a sandwich in an hour flight is amazing! Luggage delivery is amazingly fast!"
Cons: "Would like to have later flights in the evening so connections to overseas flights at BKK are easier. Otherwise, nothing!"

Cons: "Arrived to BKK international with Turkmen airlines. Found Thai Smile transfer counter in transit zone. Was refused to Thai Smile flight, was explained that they serve only customers which arrived to BKK with Thai airways. Lost my money and had to buy another ecpencieve flight from Malaysia airlines because couldn't stay in transit zone more than 12 hours and couldn't get visa on arrival. Later coldn'd find that stupid transit policy ether on Thai Smile or Kayak. If that policy in place why not publish that BEFORE people spend their money for service not provided? Very unsatisfied"

Pros: "Ground and in flight service, food, aircraft"

Pros: "what's not to like. Free checked bag, free food, sandwich and bottle of water, soda and hot coffee and tea at no charge. All of the cheaper budget airlines charge for everything including checked bags, drinks and food. It's only a few baht/ US dollars more than the other airlines but well worth it for what you get in return compared to the other airlines such as Air Asia!"
Cons: "Nothing that I can think of."

Pros: "Its only a short flight so there's not much time for anything to go wrong but it's good anyway. The staff are always friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Sometimes it can be difficult to hear announcements at the departure gate but apart from that no problem. Obviously there isn't any entertainment so I've left it at 5 stars. There should be a 'not applicable' option on this."

Pros: "Food is good for a short flight. The crew were professional."
Cons: "The check-in process at terrible. No instruction to follow and no one give direction on where to get boarding pass. the line for luggage drop-off was really long without people to give direction."

Pros: "Good flight, reasonable price"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The gate agent saw how tall my husband was and upgraded us to the exit row for more leg room which was awesome. I was feeling a little sick and the flight attendants were great to get me water and make sure I was doing ok."

Pros: "Everything was first rate and efficient"
Cons: "Nothjng"

Pros: "Great flight. On time. The crew was polite and professional. Nice experience."

Pros: "Chaotic check in process, ok boarding process, poor entertainment and nothing for vehetarians"

Pros: "Everything!"
Cons: "The price. This flight specifically was more expensive than others"

Cons: "Food was with meat."

Pros: "Such an amazing experience! From start to finish!"

Pros: "Only problem we encountered was a lost bag containing all my clothes. I arrived on a Friday and did not receive my bag until 2:50 am on Sunday morning"

Pros: "New and comfortable plane."
Cons: "Last call came much earlier than described at check in"

Pros: "Our flight was amazingly smooth. We had lunch, which was unexpected, and it was delicious. Flight attendants were very friendly and efficient. 10/10 would recommend."

Pros: "Such a quick flight Bangkok to Phuket, I wouldn't expect food, especially on Thai Smile which I think is the economy version of regular Thai Air, but they had very neat pre packed snack bags with Shu Mai. Efficient staff, always love flying Thai Air."

Pros: "Friendly crew, tasty small meal, not new but well maintained cabin"
Cons: "Slightly dated cabin"

Pros: "Amazing seats and crew"

Pros: "Lay flat beds and vegetarian food"

Pros: "The counter workers upgraded my seats to window and a better boarding group."

Pros: "The crew was on point and did there jobs well."
Cons: "The food was old fashioned and stuck in the 1960s. Having an option of Beef brisket or Salmon or two polarizing choices. I opted for the brisket and it was decent but not actually worth finishing. It was too fatty and strange tasting. Boarding in Sydney needs much improved screens and communication."

Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Keep up the good work"

Pros: "Everything Was Just Perfect"

Pros: "The service, food , amenities were all A +++"

Pros: "Facilities and comfort"
Cons: "Nil"

Cons: "2 hour delay sitting in Bangkok airport due to sick passengers and their luggage getting off"

Pros: "Early landing great service loads of legroom as am 6ft 5"
Cons: "N\a"

Pros: "Lucky to have the seat free next to me otherwise not much else good."
Cons: "Was supposed to be a A380 but they changed the flight to 777. I only flew with Emirates to be in the more spacious A380 otherwise I’d have chosen another carrier at better price. I also paid to choose seat which naturally didn’t apply any longer and was put at very back of plane so that money was wasted. They could have at least advised but the attitude was blaze and not willing to even speak to me."

Cons: "The flight was delayed for an already tight connection in Dubai. We paid for extra leg room only to be seated by the toilets to watch people throwing up most of the flight. Those same people did not get on the connecting flight and so Emirates managed to take our bags off as well, so we end up in London for a months stay with no luggage. Promises that it will arrive before midnight not kept and currently still waiting for bags to arrive."

Pros: "Emirates is everything we can wish"

Pros: "Although a short trip it was a great experience especially the bar The seat setup is very good and facilities cannot be faulted."
Cons: "Staff were rushed due to short nature of Flight most staff were great but some showed the pressure forgetting requests. Left medicine bag on Flight despite reporting it was never contacted again which inconvenienced my trip having to seek doctors for replacements."

Cons: "My seat is horrible with something looks like vomit everywhere between a gap of the seat in front of me. Also the touch screen is not working, at first I pushed so hard until i hurt my finger tip, at the end I used buttons on an remote to control the screen(stupid me!!). The screen reset to an old version couple of times during the flight the crew had to reset for me( the airline should know what i'm talking about) It's a six-hour flight but the meal was literally served at 8.55pm(original time) in my section which is the last section to get food when the flight took of at 6.10pm(original time) - almost three hours into the flight. Can't believe they claimed to be number one airline in the world. If you fly to the States from thailand. Take Quatar if you want to go to the east coast or asian airlines any thing japanese or korean or even chinese airline like Hainan airline. They are all way better than this."

Pros: "The flight certainly lived up to its reputation as being one of the nicest airlines to fly, even in being in economy. Great service, great food, great on board entertainment."
Cons: "There was an incident prior to take off where a passenger in first class had to be removed from the plane. Though it’s certainly not the airlines fault that there was an issue with a passenger, they should’ve been a lot more transparent and gave us a lot more information on what exactly was going on other then “we need to go back to a special area to get this passenger off.” Couple that with the security checks to “make sure there is nothing on the plane that shouldn’t be” and very little explanation of what actually occurred, it made for a very stressful flight. Not knowing if this passenger had made any kind of threat against the plane, or safety of other passengers... etc, it was very hard to feel safe for the remainder of my trip being left in the dark as the incident occurred in first class."

Pros: "Space"
Cons: "Breakfast could have been a bit better"

Pros: "Attention to detail Great Entertainment Excellent food Pilot updates on timing"
Cons: "Movie channels and music could be easier to use"

Pros: "The relaxed environment and the crew are amazing"
Cons: "There is always some passengers that drink a bit more than they should but.... there is nothing we can do with it"

Pros: "Excellent new plane good food friendly staff excellent entertainment"
Cons: "Staff not bring drinks regularly enough"

Pros: "Verry efficient and helpful even with oversize canvas painting,, didn't expect luggage to be transferred so quickly but the made it!"
Cons: "Delay and worry I would miss connection"

Pros: "Arguably the best service I've ever had on a flight"
Cons: "Had to stop movie 20min prior to landing as I was in emergency exit row"

Pros: "The seats are relatively good on the newer A380s. The film selection was good."
Cons: "The meal was poor."

Pros: "Best airline so far for economy long haul flight, was emerites flight"
Cons: "No Arabs on board but everything in Arabic, no real issues. Would have been hard for my Thai girl to navigate on her own"

Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Why are Emirates business Class seats on 777 so weirdly configured - you have to be a stick insect to squeeze out of bulkhead row 8 window seats because of hideous mock walnut trunk slung between the seats to house aisle TV screen."

Pros: "The in flight entertainment is as good as ever."
Cons: "The food was wore, the staff seemed less happy and the flight was overcrowded. Not a bad experience, really, but slightly worse than the same flight the previous year. Getting to be the world's best airline may be less challenging than remaining such."

Pros: "Service was wonderful people very kind enjoying them on the flight was quite beautiful soft and nice wish you good luck ."

Pros: "Service is phenomenal, comfort of the seats and in flight entertainment was fab."
Cons: "Food was mediocre, but then again haven't ever had a wonderful meal on an aeroplane before!"

Pros: "Seating and hospitality"

Pros: "crew food"
Cons: "i asked for a plus blanket, they did not provide me since the plane was full, though so many people were not using it and i felt cold; none help was provided"

Pros: "Crew were lovely very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Ground staff was quite rude refused to let us access the lift so we could board from the upper deck even though we were business class. She insisted that I walk round and board from where she was because she didn't want to walk a few steps and swipe her card for us to access the lift."

Pros: "The air conditioning worked properly"
Cons: "You asked for a drink and they never return☹️"

Cons: "Do not like Dubai airport security setup and the distance one has to walk between arrival and departure gates is a joke especially when your over 70!"

Pros: "Food selection Wine not as good as usual"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic. Why usher First Class into an area make ten stand up for ten minutes before boarding?"

Pros: "Great flight, very attentive staff, gluten free meal was not very good. At all"

Pros: "A380 Emirates get better every time"

Pros: "It was a great experience...nicest airline I've ever flown. The cabin crew was attentive and accommodating and being a vegetarian I found they had many options for my dietary requirements."

Cons: "The food was very poor, the service was not as good as before. For example they didnt provide earplug and sleeping beauty and they served the breakfast too early, so it was not enough time to sleep. After the breakfast there was still plenty of time around 1,5-2 hours. I think with the departure time at 03.00 a.m. the airline try to save one foood just after the departure. The asian noodle what they provided upon request, was not sufficiant neither fit to the rank of the airline."

Pros: "flight attendants, food, nighttime lights, seats, movies"
Cons: "when the PA announcements came over the loud speaker, when i was listening to a movie, was extremely loud"

Pros: "The check in was good. The flight was good and the hosts were ok."
Cons: "The quality of food overall on Emirates has gone down. The food doesn't taste as fresh as it used to and it is a bit dry. I used to enjoy the little dried bread bits with the sweet and sour sauce- that has since been discontinued. We were also promised a festive meal on our flight from JNB to Hong Kong on Christmas day but got a regular meal- very disappointing"

Pros: "Food, entertainment system, the air bus A380 was superb , cleanliness and crew was attentive."
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Staff, Service, plane, food. Everything"
Cons: "I can't say a word against them."

Cons: "We fid not enjoy the close proximity of several screaming children who insisted in screaming at all hoyrs, making sleep impossible. What was concerning was the reluctance of the staff to intervene. Most disappointing as we did not have any sleep at all overnight."

Pros: "I was upgraded to business"
Cons: "You did not consult me first and I was traveling with a friend"

Cons: "Another meal option was not available when it was my turn."

Pros: "I was so worried about missing my connecting flight but I got express immigration checkin it was a great gesture, didn't expect it from Emirates"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Entertainment was good, staff friendly and accomodating,"
Cons: "Food was just ok, breakfast lacking, only given croissant and yoghurt, the angled lie flat beds are not as good as the 180 degree lie flats, would be nice to have complete lie flats."

Pros: "Boarding"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Price/ available flying times"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Best Airline and services"
Cons: "Best Airline and services"

Cons: "No"

Pros: "Crews were nice"
Cons: "Better movies and free internet in flight"

Pros: "Crew was excellent as always with the Sri Lankan hospitality."
Cons: "It was an old aircraft and felt dirty. Screens, seats, lavatories, everything was old. There were some really loud and rude passengers behind us causing disruption to everyone around. The crew tried to handle it but the passengers were just not cooperating."

Pros: "Lots of leg room"
Cons: "Food. Screens weren't working properly"

Pros: "The seats and Inflight entertainment was excellent."
Cons: "Crew ran out of food choices despite the fact that I was seated near the front of the aircraft. Crew came out for the first service and didn’t serve again for the rest of the flight."

Pros: "Had more room than on BA flight to London"
Cons: "Poor selection of entertainment. Some features, such as the flight tracker, didn’t work"

Pros: "Very friendly and attentive crew. Good entertainment options."
Cons: "Business class seat is OK, not great - fine for 3.5 hour flight"

Pros: "The staff was very helpings ."
Cons: "The way they are Waigh the luggage was like weighing gold."

Pros: "Crew is amazing with a smile always. It was a new aircraft with nice screens and a good variety of movie selections. Service was excellent as well as the food."
Cons: "I was denied checking in a the counter. I bought the ticket with a friends credit card and they needed to have the actual card to swipe and then only they get access to my booking. It is company policy but it is not stated when you are making the purchase the airlines website. It says so on the bottom of the ticket on the page long rules in small print. And in all honesty who reads all of that these days. The ground crew were nice enough to take me to the airlines office at the airport and figure out a solution. It took an hour and a half to sort it out and get a verification from headquarters office in Srilanka."

Pros: "Inflight Entertainment and seats."
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Super on time"

Pros: "Crew was that much friendly."
Cons: "Not mine type food (just a suggestion please to have sri lankan varities)"

Pros: "Check in process was smooth, crew amazing, food excellent and in flight entertainment exciting."

Pros: "All crews they are helpfull"
Cons: "Food same going and coming times"

Pros: "Very prompt service and amazing hospitality. Despite the numerous times I called them for service, the staff were always polite and served me with a smile. Overwhelming hospitality really!"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Food was good, boarding efficient. Crew managed other passengers so there wasn't crazy baggage issues. Crew was friendly and very helpful."
Cons: "Seat was crazy small! Couldn't even cross my legs."

Pros: "Uniform of the crew is nice."
Cons: "The service specifically the transfer service. They weren’t helpful at all. I’m so turned off how the staff treated me. It is also not clear that I need to book a hotel thru the airline during my 13 hours transit. I was thrown back & forth like a ball. No help was done. How come an airline imposed such rule?! Worse part during flight I feel cold & asked for a blanket. We reached destination No blanket ever!! Not recommended. First & last!!!"

Pros: "The service and crew were excellent!"
Cons: "The seats weren’t very comfortable but overall the plane was very clean and again the service was impeccable."

Pros: "Acceptable but not exceptional as expected"
Cons: "Unfortunately the it was a bumpy ride as most of the time the seat belt sign was on and crew had to discontinue services for a while. This was beyond airlines control. The crew did not distribute the Sri lankan landing cards onboard. This caused some confusions for first time travellers as they had to cone off the immigration queue and went to pick the card up and to complete. Some foreigners were unhappy about it."

Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Not enough leg space, cramped seats"

Pros: "The cabin crew were friendly and attentive, I was quite impressed with the food, and they served a good white wine. I was happy to find an excellent choice of movies, tv shows and music with a simple, intuitive system for playing them."
Cons: "There were problems in the bathroom. All the paper towels were in a heap on the floor, and the sink was blocked. I told the stewardess, and she just shrugged. Obviously there are no bathroom checks on Srilankan Airlines and I don’t think that’s good enough."

Cons: "There was no uniform procedure in the flights, crew is too lazy to perform their duties. probably the first and last flying with Sri Lankan."

Cons: "We really appreciate your prompt response.Your customer service guidance is supportive for us."

Pros: "comfortable timing for india."
Cons: "1.we seated at UL 604 / 52K video was not updated , one one movie was displayed. 2. Crew was asking options i food ( non veg ) but they ere delivering what they had , question is why they asked option when they don't have option of serving. 3. Crew was pathetic. They discriminate with respect to whites and Indian's. Its really bad."

Pros: "Courteous & helpful crew."
Cons: "Terrible seats and headrests. Highly uncomfortable for an 11 hour journey especially for senior citizens."

Pros: "Staff.. food"
Cons: "SEATS... I flew with other airlines also but this aero plane has worst seats I even sat on.. My travel was of 10 hours and after 3 hours of departure I started having pain in my back...seat was poorly structured. . Its like cushion of seats were dead n on top of it that cushion behind back was too outside.. I was not able to sleep at all as was not comfortable.. Also there was no system at Srilankan airport.. No barriers for travelers so that people stand in cue but no one was following lines as there were none.. Will never fly with Srilankan airlines again ever.."

Pros: "All went well"
Cons: "Flight started on time, landed earlier, nice crew and good food good food."

Pros: "Srilankan Airlines's food was one of the best I've had. I've flown on over 50 airlines and was happy to see that the food was not processed junk as you find in most airlines. The ingredients seemed fresh. The crew were awesome: polite, kind, and considerate. They were eager to accommodate passengers' requests. The jets were new and clean. The entertainment system was touch-screen."
Cons: "The passengers were loud and ill-mannered. They gave the crew a tough time. These complaints, of course, is not a reflection of the airline."

Pros: "Liked the food, the service from the airline, the timings and the pricing of the ticket which was very reasonable given the time of the year."
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "This is the way it used to be in travel! Thanks Sri Lanka!"

Cons: "No headphones on flight from Columbo to Gan Island"

Pros: "Good veggie food, courteous and attentive staff and, quick transit"
Cons: "Inflight entertainment could be improved - most categories fo TV shows had only 2 or 3 episodes"

Pros: "Great service and friendly people"
Cons: "The plane was late"

Pros: "Like fying in the dark ages. Our first leg crew did a great job and offered first person information about what not to miss on our tour. Pretty much everything else went from bad to worse!"
Cons: "Our bags got lost on arriving flight and in this day of advanced technology and airport security, no one could even tell “where” our two pieces of luggage was located for 4 days. Needless to say our one time trip to Sri Lanka didn’t happen the way we planned."

Cons: "i am very dissatisfied for the bad service. my friend and i missed the booked flight, but the online service and counter said they can help me nothing."

Pros: "Boarding by seat row, the cheats who tried to board ahead of their seat row were manoeuvred to the back of the queue. Splendid tactics!"
Cons: "Food and seating were reasonable for economy, that’s what I paid for."

Pros: "Crew are very polite. Fast response."
Cons: "Entertainment for movies no so much update."

Pros: "This was my first time flying in and out of Colombo and on Sri Lankan Air. I was impressed by the staff, the service, and the in flight amenities, considering it was a short 1 hour flight from Colombo to Maldives."
Cons: "I had no dislikes in this trip in particular."

Pros: "Stuff is friendly, helpful and supportive. Both on the ground and in the plane"
Cons: "It would have been nice to be offered a lunch during the 2h transit in Colombo as it was lunch hours."

Pros: "Staff were very professional and courteous"

Pros: "They have great direct service, and moderately priced. And fantastic flight times."
Cons: "The flight always leaves late from Dubai and from Colombo. Not to any fault of the airline, but screaming babies the entire flight on the way to Colombo was stressful."

Cons: "Customer service was abismal when I needed to add my infant son to reservations. Spoke with 10 different reps and spent about 2 hours total on the phone. Poor English."

Pros: "Colombo to Male & vice versa by Sri Lankan airlines has been very disappointing to be polite with regard to disgusting food served by them in small cardboard box with no choices whatsoever unlike a standard career nor what they practiced in the past by serving real food chics, not even a cup of tea or copy. Disgracely shocking practice by a national career & not by any means budget airline. Previously Mihiri Air served even better choice of food & drink at moderate prices but price of ticket was at least 50% cheaper. SL Govt with SLA With no regard for passenger comfort nor giving them a reasonabl deal on his sector should be condemned & boycotted. As a regular traveler I will look at Emirates as a better airlines despite with a different time slots still would be cheaper & value FO money. Wake up Sri Lankan Airlines from your slumber"
Cons: "Food of course"

Pros: "Loved the food, service, equipment, and AVOD."

Pros: "The food was good. The service was friendly. I enjoyed my flight"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I had excess luggage and I knew I had to pay for it, I was fine with the fee they quoted. I gave them my American Express card and they did not have the facility to charge that card, how do they not have the ability to use s major credit card at the Bangalore international airport??????? They gave me such a hard time I thought they were going to kick me off the plane just because they had short coming. I had no problem paying the quated amount, since they had the short coming they were blaming me. After a lot discussion/arguments I was able to find a Visa card on me and pay for the excess luggage, but its your short coming and not mine as I had no problem paying the fees yet I was treated badly. What if I did not have a Visa card then would I have been kicked out the plane for something the bangalore international airport have problems. No one should be blamed for issues you have. I had no problem paying to fees... you had the problem that you could not use a major credit card, when there are small markets on the street that can use the American Express card. You should be able to charge people American Express card this is a large international airport with loads of expats living and traveling in and out of Bangalore I hope you look into this instead of just asking for feedback and not doing anything about it. Thanks you, Chrishanthi Fernandopulle"

Pros: "Nice flight, attentive crew."
Cons: "My bags were screened three times. Really? Once through security, we were told the gate wasn't open so we were escorted back out. And then had to go through security again. Chaos. No lines just pushing and shoving, people crawling under the rope and cutting the line. No matter the flight, the airport over shadows every thing."

Cons: "Slow load of luggage.."

Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Old plane"

Pros: "The ground staff from the help desk was helpful enough"
Cons: "I could have been rebooked a flight without having to pay for it. Who wants to lost his or her passport? It was very inconvenient and stressful for me, at least free rebooking would have ease my situation."

Cons: "Good food"

Pros: "Pleasant and efficient crew made a middle of the night flight (01.00 - 05.30) quite bearable! Food good too."

Cons: "The food needs to improve and the movies are old. The actual flight was nice."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Economy sets are too tight and cramped. Cup holder was good for nothing, i tried to put my soft drink bottle in it and it slipped right out the bottom and when I tried to put a cup of water in it supplied by the crew it wouldn't fit! When I reclined my seat to sleep the passenger behind me pushed my seat hard back to upright position. When I turned around to ask why the rude response I realized that he was a tall fellow and his knees were already touching the back of my seat so when I reclined it, it hurt him and he had no where to move his legs. I couldn't do or say much as I understood his misery and therefore kept my seat up the whole way for 5 hours! The flight was full and neither of us could relocate to another seat."

Pros: "Wheel service was excellent"

Cons: "Better coordination between stewards."

Pros: "Seat was not comfortable TV and the hand set was not used friendly Scrambled eggs on the breakfast was really not good ...., sorry !!! Finally the smell of the J class area was bad Like old shoes smell !!!!! Sorry to say that but it was like that Next time please take care of this"

They were able to checkin bags to Manchester but not able to issue boarding card. length of flight when alternative is a direct flight from bah to lhr. Sinbad ffp website not easy. for a new aircraft the ife selection was very poor."

Pros: "Meal options and snacks, good crew staff. And relatively comfortable seating. The plane waited for us because of the earlier delayed flight, though we prefer to have been given the option to stay the night and catch the next morning flight."
Cons: "The flight got delayed from Alexandria and the staff at Manama airport directed us to a counter to get our onward boarding passes but another senior member of staff asked us "what are you doing here" and asked us to go straight to the gate, then when we arrived at Abu Dhabi the baggage did not arrive with us and we had to go back to the airport later to pick them up."

Pros: "New Dreamliner. Business Class very comfortable. Onboard chef very attentive."
Cons: "IFE very limited, so take a good book!"

Pros: "The 20 yr old A330/200 was decided past its sell by ..."
Cons: "Very poor movie & TV choices. Business class seat very uncomfortable"

Pros: "Easy"
Cons: "Wow"

Pros: "how convenient it is"

Pros: "New plane. Quiet flight. Good service."
Cons: "Boarding was too long and a bit chaotic"

Cons: "The flight was held back for late arrival of some passengers which resulted in delay in departure"

Cons: "My seats on both flights did not work and I flew buisiness class and expected to be comfortable which I wasn't . On arrival to Kuwait we waited 45 minutes for our bags which were labeled priority."

Pros: "People, culture and peace"
Cons: "Traffic and crowd"

Pros: "I was rerouted entirely to fly with Austrian Air, and only landed 2 hours later than scheduled, which was nice."
Cons: "My Gulf Air flight from Bangkok to Paris was delayed 7 hours which would make me miss my connection to Paris in Bahrain...and they wanted to put me on a new flight that would have me layover in Bahrain for more than 18 hours, and landing in Paris 24 hours later than planned. I politely said no and asked them to find me something else, and they did--so that was good. But the suggested alternative for a 7 hour delay was absolutely ridiculous. Also, the 7 hour delay was never explained and no other flights were delayed, so I guess it was something wrong with the plane?"

Pros: "Gap between both flights was tight.But very helpful ground crew & flight crew"
Cons: "The journey was too short to give any proper rating"

Pros: "I really liked the crew treatment, they were polite and we well served by them ."
Cons: "The long queue infront Gulf air check in desk in the airport! People who came early that had to wait for a long time to have their boarding pass! I think increasing the number of employers in that area will be a great idea ."

Pros: "Service in the plane"
Cons: "The crew at the check in were mean... bizarre regulation that don't apply to any other airline. Refuse to give a wheelchair for an elderly claiming she has to book it in advance.. what if the person broke their legs that day??? None sense. And the baggage regulation are just not clear and confusing."

Cons: "Although I do not have small children, I think it would be helpful to allow people traveling with small children to board a few minutes ahead of everyone else."
