Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "The flight was 3 hours delayed - and the captain never told us exactly what was wrong. The boarding lane was a chaos as well - and the tv screens never really worked. Terrible!"

Pros: "good service, good food"
Cons: "staff could be more cheerful towards travellers"
Pros: "Nothing. Despite booking Qatar Airways for both legs the transfer distance is incredibly far. Only just made connecting flight!"

Cons: "My 17 yr old son is stranded in Doha because Qatar cancelled his connection to Nairobi which is unprofessional and terribly worrisome . I, his mother, am in Greece with no way ofhelping him get to Kenya. Qatar offers no restitution and no help . The worst situation right now!"

Pros: "Comfort and cleanliness."
Cons: "We could not watch anything as my wife and my screen did not work."
Pros: "Service offered by crew, arranged veg food when found not listed. Boston to Doha veg food loading needs improvement."
Cons: "Wait time at Doha for next flight."
Cons: "They arbitrarily switched the flight one hour ahead of schedule, with no notice so half the passengers ended up missing it."
Pros: "Flawless boarding, service, food."
Cons: "We arrived 2 hours and 40 minutes late due to technical issues with the aeroplane. We were kept informed and we arrived safely, so this is a nibir complaint."
Pros: "Comfortable, attractive, nice music, good food, nice crew, on time, easy takeoff and landing! What else could you ask for? ;-)"

Pros: "Departed n arrived on time"
Cons: "Small old plane crow were tired I think"
Pros: "I like that the air stewards bring you water and drinks throughout and don't judge you for being too thirsty. I like that they respect that it is a night flight and serve the meal quickly so it can be dark for the whole flight and you can sleep as much as you can. I like how efficient the layover is in Doha - only 40mins!"
Cons: "I don't like when they don't ask the person in front to move their chair up for the meal and the passengers have to ask each other. I don't like that they can't tell you the gate of your connecting flight and how long it will take to get you there - including if you will need to take a bus and the train. I think this could reduce a lot of anxiety. If they could do this, it would also be helpful to let people who have a connecting flight that is boarding in the next 30 mins off the plane first. This would save pushing and shoving in the aisles... and would also reduce anxiety about booking a flight with such a short layover."
Pros: "Food, service, staff at the counter"
Cons: "Cant think of any"
Pros: "The flight was good. But daily they are delayed and the passengers had to miss the connecting flight."
Pros: "It just felt like you are constantly given food and drinks while having an endless amount of entertainment at your fingertips."

Cons: "Chairs very stiff, tight smpace"
Pros: "The Boarding Emirates at Logan Airport is a nightmare. The staff are unhelpful, and take long time to process Transiting passengers. The Desk is understaffed, and the staff is rude."
Cons: "The flight has enough crew on board, but the staff usually stand together in the galley and keep gossiping, instead of going around once in a while and check on passengers. It's a long flight and crews change but the passengers don't."
Cons: "I am an Emirates skywards member and I was placed in the middle seat when my preference on Emirates and Kayak is an aisle seat. After boarding it was explained to me that I couldn’t move to an aisle seat even though more than one seat was available. I asked to pay or to use miles I have accrued."
Cons: "Luggage claim in chennai"
Pros: "flight was very empty, so crew very accommodating. boarding simple with so few"
Pros: "First time we flew on business on international (we upgraded)."
Cons: "I haven’t received my bag yet. It’s been 4 days"
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "Crew was not very friendly. Had argument with a old man in the next row over serving glass of water"
Pros: "Staff helpful and courteous under difficult conditions."
Cons: "People were allowed wheel chairs without a doctor'snote. 59 wheel chairs passengers is ridiculous. Make it a requirement wheel chair assistance required a doctor's note. And check hand luggage weight. Many bags excceeded the limit."

Pros: "The pre-boarding, courtesy extended, everything was good. No complaints."
Cons: "The long hop because of my age"

Cons: "Long bus ride to the aircraft - thought we were driving to Muscat!"
Pros: "Really exceptional service! Very impressed!"
Cons: "Request to allot passage seat on 30th Nov"
Pros: "I recently booked a flight on Qatar first, to Ko Samui, Thailand. When I got on the plane, I asked the flight attendant to please be careful when he pushed the cart down the aisle because the last time I flew, the flight attendant smashed the cart into my elbow and drew blood. The flight attendant laughed at me, so I told him, calmly, that if it happened again, I would sue the airline. He didn't like that, and so for the next ten minutes he sent three different flight attendants over to ask me crazy questions like, "Do you have anything you would like to tell us?" I have no idea what this was about. Eventually, I was told to get off the plane, which ended up costing me over $1,500 in transportation, hotel, and new flight (on Emirates) fees. It was and still is a nightmare because my vacation has been ruined due to having no money. I'm a master's-degree-holding English teacher of 11 years with no history of ever having been asked to get off of a plane for any reason, and no, I was not drunk because while waiting for my luggage to be returned, had a conversation with three Boston airport police officers who did not arrest me or even understand why I had been kicked off of my flight. Nor did I speak a single profane word to the Qatar flight attendants or security, and of course, I did not use violence or resist when I was told to get off the plane. Unlike Qatar's staff, the Boston police officers were very polite and understanding. Emirates, on the other hand, was a completely different story. They were great. The staff was friendly, and when I was sleeping, they didn't send their staff over to harass me. I have flown on Emirates, Qatar, and Ethihad many times, and I truly don't understand why Qatar's staff have been instructed by their managers that it is okay to lose long-time customers and kick professional teachers off of their planes just because they think I wasn't perfectly sweet and nice to them all the time. I am an American, and in my country we have freedom of expression and speech, as long as that speech does not indicate violent intentions or use profanity or insults. Basically, I felt as though I was in a country with no rights to free speech at all. Presently I am having my lawyer work up legal documents for Qatar to get my money back and to reimburse me for travel and hotel expenses, as well as having to take two extra days off of work to reschedule my flight. I truly believe in the transparency of the travel industry through using comments like those I am making you readers aware of right now, and I assume you will benefit from this rhetorical question/advice: Emirates and Ethihad are sometimes a little more expensive than Qatar on certain flights, but is it really worth it to risk having Qatar take your money and make you miss your flight for no reason? Is it acceptable for an airline operating in the USA to deprive Americans of their right to express concern to the flight attendants on their plane?"
Pros: "The service provided by the crew is top notch. No one goes hungry on Emirates."
Cons: "The seat pitch is getting tight."
Pros: "I enjoyed everything about Emirates. No complaints. Nice plane and stewardess."
Cons: "That no accommodations were made nor provided"
Pros: "The staff near Baggage check-in area are always rude with the customers, it also happened to us in the past."
Cons: "Very very poor customer service"
Pros: "Fast checkin with Online Checkin. Only had to go to baggage dropoff. Nice onboard service. Like the choice of good entertainment for such short flight. Several options to watch."
Cons: "Flight had some delay. One person on-ground very rude and totally out of line in the way to treat customers. Under no circumstance any airline employee should lecture a passenger about time schedules and such. I had read the rules online and was aware of the timings required if checking in online. I was surprised being accustomed to good service from this airline."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants was extremely rude. She passed over me several times like I wasn't sitting in the most uncomfortable seat. In the middle. She didn't want to give me water, I had to ask if I could have some water. TSA held me up, I almost missed my flight had to be rushed on and no place to put my things so I had to sit squashed in the middle seat with all my bags for a 12 hour flight. I won't EVER go through Boston AGAIN. I won't ever chose Emirates for that long flight again, if I can help it. The WORST!!"
Cons: "Did not get wheelchair assistance for my dad as requested."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Boarding is complicated . They didn't allow cabin baggage and laptop bag together. Only 1 is allowed"
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly. And, the amenities offered are superb."
Pros: "Loved how professional, courteous,pleasant and efficient all flight attendants were."
Cons: "Majority of movies were either B movies or older movies. Would have enjoyed more recent movies."
Cons: "Nothing everything is good"
Pros: "All flight attendants dressed and acted in a VERY professional manner. Always polite and helpful. Lots of smiles. Loved the eye mask, ear plugs, socks and toothbrush. Food was much better than most flights on other airlines."
Cons: "On such a long flight I wish my seat would have gone back just a little more. Might have been easier to sleep. Would have liked to have a newer selection of movies."
Pros: "Value for money. Courteous, efficient, and pragmatic. Recycled blankets and headphones."
Cons: "Bathroom door broken I was locked inside for several minutes"
Pros: "Crew were very nice"
Cons: "Seat cushions are horrible There is no padding. 'All the chairs dirty too. Decor was very old"
Pros: "Crew went out of their way to be friendly"
Pros: "The amenities in Business Class were excellent - the seat was luxurious and you could actually catch some sleep. The food was gourmet and the staff was very attentive. They made a small mistake and forgot to serve me dessert but the mistake was remedied immediately when I informed them of the slip up."
Cons: "I paid a LOT of money for a Business Class seat and yet I was never notified that my flight was going to be delayed in departing by 12+ hours until after I arrived at the airport. According the the flight crew, they were notified at 9am that morning and the airline had my phone number and email, yet I arrived at the airport at 8pm because I was never notified! I spent $50 to take a taxi to the airport and now I had a 10am departure the following morning! I was given no compensation for this massive issue. Just "sorry, come back tomorrow!" I was very upset! My choices were either take ANOTHER $50 taxi home that night and then another $50 taxi back in the morning or get a $150 hotel room at the airport. So glad I paid THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS for my Business Class seat (a big spend for me as I've never flown Business Class before but felt like a special treat for a special occasion). WTF, Emirates!"
Pros: "The selection of tv shows and movies was excellent. Very diverse. The crew were also very responsive to anything we asked (water, questions, etc...) They gave me good advice regarding my connecting flight."
Cons: "The plane was an older model, so the touch screen was a bit unresponsive. Our tvs were shut off for the first two hours because of a glitch."
Pros: "not so many people in my flight, the crew were so nice and very helpful."
Cons: "first meal was bad,I requested low fat meal and they gave me the beef something which was meh!"
Pros: "Lovely online and phone customer service reps. Comfy flight with good entertainment (tv)."
Cons: "My baggage (x3) was delayed 3 days, which was frustrating to say the least. I received no apology email or flight discount/refund/coupon, etc."
Pros: "Free movies!!! Blanket and pillow provided. Also the crew was very attentive."
Cons: "Switching of terminals to Fly Dubai"
Cons: "Had a tough time to get a replacement ticket."
Cons: "Despite ordering a vegetarian Oriental meal, I was given a meat dish in my meal!"
Pros: "Lots of food"
Pros: "There were a lot of different movies to watch. Also, the food was real good."
Pros: "This is my third time flying with Emirates and I can not say enough positive things. I only wish my husband was able to fly with them."
Cons: "No organization, had trouble in check in. On Boston airport we had to do passport check there was a long queue. Nobody was answering any questions. I think direct flights from Emirates are outstanding but the code share with Jet Blue did not work for me. For food there was Hindu meal option which did not specify veg or non veg we were served lamb but FYI Hindu meal means no beef and could be veg or non veg which does not make sense. Emirates should clarify that. So we ate nothing on our flight to Dubai."
Pros: "My flight was very comfortable, and the staff was very attentive."
Cons: "I was not able to choose my seat for this flight"
Pros: "The baggage allowance, excess baggage rules are some of the most generous rules. The service of the people on board is great I general and the aircrafts are impeccable."
Cons: "The first leg of Hyderabad to Dubai was about 3.5 hours. The airhostesses must have been tired from another long haul prior to the HYD-DBX leg. A couple of them were a little less than charming to some of the passengers. Many of the people from Indian subcontinent don't use the magic words - thank you and please. So, it could come out likes bit rude but a curt answer in stead of yelling would have sufficed. My flight was from EWR to HYD with stopovers at BOS and DBX. A long wait at Dubai can be understood and expected. But a 7 hour layover at Boston was a killer. If Emirates tied up with any other carrier other than jet blue, this could have been avoided. Even otherwise, after a 20+ hour journey, another 7+ hour waiting was a killer. Please change it to make the journey shorter"
Pros: "Entertainment and food"
Pros: "Great food. Decent comfort but only because the plane was pretty empty. Crew was great but they kept disappearing. People need to sleep, sure, but I felt a little abandoned at times. Good selection for movies and tv."
Cons: "Boston Logan airport was a mess. There were at least 15 people working at the gate, fooling around. Meanwhile we were all sitting there waiting and waiting and waiting to board. It was a bit rude."
Pros: "Very attentive, patient, helpful and friendly on-board crew Food was good In-flight entertainment options"
Cons: "understaffed counter at the gate. People waited in line for as long as 45 minutes for passport check Audio quality of airline provided headsets was poor. Some would not work. Others did not play audio on both left and right sides"
Pros: "Food was delicious. Lots of free movies. There was even a ton of entertainment options I didn't try, so I am sure there is something for everyone."
Cons: "The headphones jack required the two prong kind, which I did not have. But they provide headphones free, so it wasn't that big of a deal."
Pros: "Probably the most serene and comfortable public transportation experience I've ever had. And have had a lot of really miserable experiences traveling so this really stood out. The variety of entertainment options, the free alcohol, pleasant staff, clean bathroom, plus no one was sitting next to me which was really awesome, although I suppose not really Emirate's doing. A+++++ will most definitely take Emirates again"
Pros: "Quick, efficient and on our way. Crew were nice."
Cons: "Flight Attendants again just zoom by with the trash bag and my hands were full of the trash and she didn't even notice. So I left on the empty aisle seat next to me. I went to sleep and when I woke up 30 mins later the trash was still sitting on the seat next to me."
Pros: "The best airline ever! Super friendly crew and staff, great customer service and nice planes. Love KLM!"
Pros: "Pumpkin soup instead of a heavy entree was welcome and tasty. Breakfast yogurt portion was generous, the granola less so. Accompaniments were good. Butter was not ice cold, thank goodness."
Cons: "Inbelievably chaotic boarding process for Kili to Dar leg. No boarding lanes so had to fight through the crowd. Was able to observe cleaning process at Dar stop, which was cursory and am sure there was no cleaning of seats of those who boarded at Kili."
Pros: "The crew was very kind"
Cons: "It's KLM. What else do you need to know."
Pros: "Information sharing by pilots and crew. Economy class leg room is good."
Cons: "All good up to the level"
Cons: "Still don’t have my luggage yet"
Pros: "The crew tried to be helpful but were equally frustrated with the ground crew."
Cons: "Follow your own policies. Allow people to board (economy plus) with their hand luggage who have followed all the rules and chosen a seat in the front of the plane. My daughter and my KLM approved baggage were taken by the boarding crew while allowing other passengers to go with more than allowed"
Pros: "Pleasant crew. Appropriate and efficiently served snack."
Cons: "Boarding and disembarkation were slow."
Pros: "Staff were professional and polite."

Pros: "The aircraft"
Cons: "No overbooking next time!"
Pros: "Crew was great, very responsive and hospitable!"
Cons: "more lunch choices, especially choices without dairy products."
Cons: "Head support for 6 feet plus people on seats would be good"
Cons: "Boarding was very slow."
Pros: "Crew was very engaging and service was good."
Cons: "My seat was horrible. Right at the door, crammed, and no place to store my carry-on luggage."
Pros: "Crew were friendly and helpful. Moved me up front in the plane so I could make my connection."
Cons: "Not having to walk outside in Edinbur4gh to board the flight."
Cons: "We were changed from KLM to Airiltalia without any information sent so only because I tried to check in did I find out the flight on KLM was cancelled and we were changed to Airitalia. The Airitalia flight was very mediocre."
Pros: "Crew was amazing, seats were comfortable with enough leg space even without choosing extra space seats. It was my childhood dream come true to fly with KLM. It was really an exciting trip for me, just that it was short."
Cons: "Well, for me everything was on point. Those who have never travelled with KLM, I would encourage them to do so and I’m sure they will not regret."
Pros: "Seating is tight. The crew was great !"
Cons: "As we landed we had to wait on the plane for an hour and a half because another plane (Spirit) was in our “parking spot.” This made it very difficult for people and connecting flights."
Pros: "very attentive crew"
Cons: "Only ham sandwiches on offer! I'm not demanding and would have been happy with cheese."
Pros: "Friendly staff, great service on board. Way better value and service compared to the tacky Irish competition flying the route. Delta all the way"
Pros: "Once aboard the plane, all went well and I experienced excellent service from the cabin attendants."
Cons: "The flight was delayed (again!) for some 40 minutes and I was worried that I would miss my connection flight in Atlanata. Fortunately the pilot made up for the delay (probably costing the airline thousands in fuel). It seems these days that every KLM flight I take is delayed. This stretch goes back to 2015! Yet KLM prides itself as being punctual. Not the KLM that I have been flying!"
Pros: "The crew was really friendly."
Cons: "There was a Force Majeur delay in Helsinki due to wings freezing that caused 20 minute delay to Amsterdam and made the interchange stressful."
Pros: "Nice crew pilot food and beverage"
Cons: "No wifi"
Cons: "Having to change my seat to accommodate a rude belligerent passenger, who had taken my seat, refused to move until spoken to by steward. She then made my flight a nightmare, until I let her sit in my aisle seat. Even then she was not satisfied, she abused me the whole flight damaged the screen so I could not use it until the steward fixed it. Demanded that I except any and all alcohol to give to her to drink. When I am tea total she then continued to abuse me. I asked the steward to move me he just shrugged his shoulders and said there was nowhere else. This is definitely my the worst flight I have experienced."
Pros: "Amsterdam airport and Rome airport were as breeze to navigate, even only knowing English"
Pros: "Shirt flight but well catered, boarding was efficient and quick."
Cons: "Not lots of legroom but adequate for an hour long hop. It was cold on board and also had to board via steps from outside"
Pros: "The food rocks! I know that I will always be eating well with KLM. The staff is always so nice, professional and cordial...I always know I'll be in good hands with the flight."
Pros: "kLM staff was great."
Pros: "Interior of the plane was clean. Smooth landing."
Cons: "Pilot did not avoid turbulence"
Pros: "More than adequate room, And very good service from a very professional staff. Head and shoulders abovevany American carrier, and several European lines I have flown."
Cons: "Can't think of anything."
Pros: "Fairly nice flight. 7 hours AMS to JFK. They had ice cream cones for us mid flight and an after dinner cognac if you wished."
Cons: "Not a big fan of paying for a few extra inches of leg room in a better seat after paying for a ticket."
Pros: "Overall everything was ok."
Cons: "Not that I cared at the time but having been asked for a rating on “entertainment” - there was none. Cheap and cheerful really. No extras over the likes of RyanAir."
Cons: "Delay can occur sometimes but it wiuld be better to be explained its reason and the estimated time for boarding. The customer service at CDG airport was the worst ever and all people standing boarding desk were useless without any mind what they are doing."
Cons: "Actually the Welcome on board announcement. The part where they special welcome loyalty program members. I do not get that... I am an explorer holder my self, but really?? so other paying customers are not as welcome. This is leftovers from the older days.."
Pros: "Service, technology"
Cons: "Could not print by boarding card and was not allowed to board in Amsterdam"
Pros: "The staff the facilities the food all ******. Will definetly look forward to choose both delta and KLM"
Pros: "The staff were professional and friendly The food was very good and plentiful The inflight entertainment has lots of choices The bathrooms remained clean All in stark contrast with BA with who I did the same flight 2 weeks ago and all the above points were very poor"
Pros: "Pretty basic one hour flight so there's not much to complain about or praise about. I got some sleep which was good."
Cons: "The crew had their general Dutch aloofness on form. Chatted to one of the stewardesses in Dutch up until she saw I had a British passport then she decided she could only speak English to me."
Pros: "Crew good flight was fine apart from delay due to fog in Amsterdam but kept informed"
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to weather in Amsterdam area"
Pros: "Crew was courteous and polite! Entertainment system had some great movies at no additional cost."
Cons: "Poor communication between delta, KLM and Air France meant that I couldn’t check in online and get a digital boarding pass. Furthermore I couldn’t use the check-in kiosks because my name was listed as Reidmr instead of Reid, which meant that my boarding pass did not match my passport. Overall this caused unnecessary delays that were compounded by the fact that I couldn’t use my TSA precheck. My main problem on the plane was that I had to struggle to get water served to me. It’s always so dry on planes and I would have liked to be able to get more than one tiny glass of water at a time. Also, would have loved a window at my window seat. Plus no WIFI!?"
Cons: "Service from airline host Poorly maintained plane Bad food Old entertainment"
Pros: "Usual professional and friendly service from my airline of choice for most destinations."
Pros: "That we didn’t crash"
Cons: "Everything! The crew was rude, no entertainment whatsoever, late boarding, late departure and bad experience with the check in process both in app and on website."
Cons: "Late Cabin extremely warm Full flight and centre seat means no room to relax or carry out work"
Pros: "The cabin crew, the flight and communication and the cleanliness of the plane."
Cons: "It was really unclear which desk to use at Birmingham airport to check in. It was extremely stressful for a first time flier as I had no idea what to do - the desk location wasn't marked clearly and when no staff were there it wasn't clear that the desk was open."
Pros: "Staff superb. They even surprised us with an exit row and a gift for my partners birthday! Amazing. Samantha and Dennis also took time to come and personally wish him a happy birthday. A lovely touch. This airline runs like clockwork. They are just great. The sandwich and stoop waffle are nice too."
Cons: "There is a bus to the plane, so that takes a bit of extra time but they are very well organized."
Cons: "Flight delayed, had to take two more flights and was a four hour trip turned into a 12 hour, 4 countries trip"
Cons: "The crew on the Lagos Amsterdam route (in economy) are particularly unfriendly and brusque. This is my experience each time i fly this route in economy"
Cons: "Completely none sense to change the time of départure (30 min earlier) with just a simple email 24h before and w/o sending a text on mobile phone."
Cons: "Seat spaces are so small for long flights. London Helsinki on the back seat was a torture."
Pros: "Easy and quick boarding."
Cons: "Seat space was tight"
Cons: "Very tight seating in the double decker near the rear particularly for a six hour flight. Food and drink were very good and check -in clerk got us on an earlier flight. Only complaint really was the lack of any leg room."
Pros: "Wonderful crew!"
Cons: "It is impossible to get comfortable in those seats."
Pros: "Direct boarding from business class lounge!"
Cons: "3+ hours late"
Pros: "BA lounge at Boston Airport"
Cons: "Departure delayed more than 2 hours"
Cons: "Missed Connection due to late Arrival at Heathrow from BOS, causing us to miss connection to MXP. then took a flight to LIN. Problem, was rental car was near MXP. It cost $129.70 for taxi , but have only been reimbursed $64.26 even though told at the counter that we would be reimbursed in full."
Pros: "service was good, food was good"
Cons: "seats were too cramped for such a long flight and I didn't have the resources to upgrade to the next level (not first class, "World Traveler Plus" I think). The seats were also uncomfortable / not padded enough - my tailbone and lower back were very unhappy by the end of the flight"
Cons: "Too many delays"
Pros: "Ease of boarding"
Pros: "New bedding is comfortable!"
Cons: "1. No toiletries were available for business class even on this flight. 2. There was no food choice especially if you prefer vegetarian. 3. Even if One presses a button to request for some water, no one comes to the seat; this habit of BA continues for the good part of the last decade. Reminded me why I stopped flying BA! 4. No wifi even in Business class! Someone in senior management of BA needs to fly SQ, Cathay, Qatar, Emirates and learn what can be improved. Most of these airlines have better service in economy than business on BA!"
Pros: "Entertainment on board"
Cons: "Late. No other flights to Milan for 12 plus hours. Rerouted to a different airport. Rental car at Mxp so have to taxi back and forth. Missed tours etc. no apparent reason for being late. Weather was fine."
Pros: "Clean plane and excellent flight overall. The food was very good and the cabin crew were very nice."
Pros: "Crew and staff were very nice."
Cons: "Flight was overbooked even though we booked the flight 2 months ahead of time"
Pros: "The red eye from Boston was the second night flight in a row. So my seat, on the aisle, near the back, with no seat behind it, was a welcome one. I slept the whole way."
Cons: "Leg room in basic Economy is a bit meager.L"
Pros: "The crew was very polite and nice."
Cons: "I have never seen seats with such little leg room."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Old entertainment system"
Pros: "Airline accommodated the delay with free room and meal voucher."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 24 hours. Text message was sent on route that the flight was on time. Mechanical problems."
Pros: "the meal, the aircraft, the friendliness of the flight crew, the on time departure and arrival."
Cons: "overhead storage was inadequate. People were allowed to carry on bags to large to fit the overhead bins correctly."
Pros: "Flew BA to India. The flight was really nice. Crew was very helpful and friendly. Food was quite good. Solid selection of entertainment. All in all, one of the best trips to India."
Cons: "The only negative was that the plane was an older plane. Thus, some of the features found in newer planes were lacking. For example, the video screens were lower resolution than other flights. These were all minor issues that really didn’t impact the overall experience."
Pros: "The food on the flight was good and the wheelchair assistance was good too."
Pros: "This flight was easy and well run - the seats were comfortable and service good. The flight was timely."
Cons: "The seats just made the grade of comfortable. Flight was packed - good for Iberian bad for passengers."
Cons: "Seat was very uncomfortable and food was not good! Staff was so so!"
Pros: "Flight attendants are very helpful. Food options are better than American Airlines."
Cons: "The seats are narrow, could be wider (please see Cathay Pacific layout - they are the best in the One World Alliance). The amount of storage space at the seat level was limited. Limited lighting available when one wants lights for personal use. Lastly, the person sitting in the window seat has to "step over" the aisle person (is he/she is sleeping) - not a good design."
Pros: "I always try to fly British Airways whenever possible."
Pros: "In-flight service was really good"
Cons: "I was travelling with family and they assigned seats all over the flight. Initially they assigned seat for my 3 year old separate from us."
Cons: "Overall was excellent"
Pros: "Staff and leg room"
Pros: "Everything! Best airline ever."
Pros: "The extra space and comfort of the Traveler Plus class was amazing."
Pros: "The entertainment controls give many options which is nice to help pass the time."
Cons: "The attendants were not as helpful as I thought they should have been and actually were a bit unpleasant."
Pros: "The crew was excellent and very professional, the flight was on time and the meal service was decent"
Cons: "The equipment was American Airlines and was seriously outdated, the ife was not on every seat and the seats themselves were horrible"
Pros: "Entertainment, timely boarding"
Cons: "Delayed landing, one or the attendants was very rude"
Cons: "Lost luggage"
Pros: "Live counters for dinner Boarding directly from lounge"
Cons: "My sound in the movie didn't work as the headphone jack wouldn't work. It made the movie unwatchable."
Cons: "I recommend that you not affiliate with Webjet. I will never make a reservation through them. Everyone at Webjet is from India with strong accent. Always put on hold to ask supervisor to make any change. Took 4 phone calls , many emails and hours on the phone to finally cancel a flight."
Cons: "Great flight"
Pros: "The staff was polite and the entertainment was good. The seats were ok."
Cons: "It was too cold, even after throwing the blanket over me. The breakfast was disappointing, just a small granola bar to eat, more like a snack then bfast. They did not distribute the hot towels or wipes after waking us up."
Pros: "The flight got us there safely."
Cons: "The security area was crowded and loud with a man shouting instructions you could barely hear. No one was helpful. No one was there to answer questions. An extremely unpleasant experience."
Pros: "Ear phones for those of us who did not bring any. Having a meal and drink available and at no extra cost."
Cons: "Not knowing if I could get an extra drink after the food was served, would have been helpful. Snacks of chips, pretzels would be tasty. Offering more water or a larger container offered would help. Explaining how u have to get to the next terminal would help. Having to go to many shuttles is confusing."
Cons: "I require wheelchair assistance .. There was only one person servicing the entire group of people To bring us to the connecting flight as a result it took us way longer to get to our connecting flight and we all ended up missing it. I had to spend over 12 hours in London .. Which was very uncomfortable and tiring for me considering my poor health, the previous 8 HR flight from Boston-London and the upcoming 9 hour london-Mumbai."
Pros: "Check-in Ticket printed by BA staff at the airport had the wrong gate number so I was sat in the wrong part of the terminal until I got suspicious and double checked the screens to find my flight had started boarding elsewhere. Entertainment system had a screen from the mobile phone you owned more than a decade ago. Breakfast was a Kellogg's chew bar. Staff onboard were excellent."
Cons: "I was not let onto the flight as my passport was expiring in less than 3 months and the EU has restrictions against this. My disappointment stems from the fact that I was not given any warning that this was a concern before I arrived at the airport. So, I was unable to use the ticket and have been subsequently told that I cannot be refunded for any part of the ticket. As a consequence, I will not be using Finnair again at any point in the future."
Cons: "they have removed the eye mask and toothbrush from the long-haul night life kit. Also the new seat have different headrests, that don't bend"
Cons: "I was unable to check-in online or select seats, and was thus relegated to a middle seat. Never happens when I book directly at ba.com - so clearly, they penalize people who book through an airfare wholesale site. In addition, they typically offer an upgrade promotion ($$) online or at time of check-in, but when I asked they said they weren't offering any - despite a colleague who booked directly on ba.com being offered one. Won't ever make that mistake again - not worth it."
Pros: "Seats great"
Pros: "Crew and stewardess were fantastic"
Cons: "Bathrooms needed cleaning on the long trip from Addis Ababa to Houston! They were nasty because guys can’t seem to hit the hole. So there was urine on seat and on floor."
Pros: "When we were unable to travel due to Corona Virus restrictions, Ethiopian gave us a full refund even though we had a non-refundable ticket, and they were lovely about it when they did it. A+, hope I'll get a chance to actually fly with them soon."
Cons: "Better veg food, Ask and provide water to drink when flight is 10 hrs long. Not just provide lunch and dinner."
Pros: "Helpful, friendly crew. Comfortable plane"
Cons: "In flight entertainment could be a little better. Perhaps let passengers know about the inflight entertainment available via WiFi"
Cons: "Plane was very very old"
Pros: "Pleasant check-in staff. Friendly flight attendants."
Cons: "Travelers should be told that Gate 2 to Kumasi will be empty when you get there and that you should go around the corner to the transit area and wait for your flight there. They should let you know that they will announce the flight from the transit area."
Pros: "The crew were fantastic! The one meal from Athens to Cairo was excellent, the other two meals weren’t too bad but not as good as the first one."
Cons: "The security in Cairo was really a joke."
Pros: "nothing really"
Cons: "entertainment system only played audio out of one ear, small selection of movies, flight departed late and gate changed"
Pros: "The flight was four hours delayed in Djibouti and there was absolutely zero, NO communication, whatsoever, provided by the Djibouti Ethiopian Airlines staff what was going on, how long the flight was going to be delayed, or if it was actually complete canceled for that evening."
Cons: "Flight ET365 was scheduled to leave Djibouti at 19:00 but did not leave until 23:30, without any screen information or by the Ethiopian Airlines staff at JIB airport how long the delay would be or if the flight was completely cancelled. Extremely unprofessional and ignorant handling of the situation"
Cons: "Everything starting from the check in to on board restrooms"
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: "faster service in the plane"
Cons: "I was overbooked in Addis"
Pros: "Customer care was good"
Cons: "I suspect the problem of luggage started with Alitalia my first leg"
Pros: "good onboard service"
Pros: "Thumbs up. Flight was smooth and on time!"
Pros: "Will never fly this airline again"
Cons: "The food was bad and on the second stretch the airline did a stop over in Cairo that was not originally planned and delayed the flight by over 3 hours making me miss my connection flights and forcing me to rebuy tickets since there was no ground staff at Rome that could handle the situation. Made me end up losing 1000 usd in tickets I had to buy. Not the way I'm used to be treated as a business class costumer"
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: "Flight time changed without notice. Delays in Medinah caused us to miss our connecting flight to Johannesburg. Really poor communication. No agents would take calls in Jeddah. Really terrible service. Would avoid using this airline at all cost. Not the first time I've been delayed by them"
Cons: "Flight time changed without notice. Delays in Medinah caused us to miss our connecting flight to Johannesburg. Really poor communication. No agents would take calls in Jeddah. Really terrible service. Would avoid using this airline at all cost. Not the first time I've been delayed by them"
Pros: "The plane was very bad and scrambling all time."
Cons: "Smell. Hygiene very low."
Pros: "I liked the crew. They are kind."
Cons: "The boarding in Addis was an absolute nightmare. No one could figure out where to go and when. Mombasa and Nairobi flight boarding was mixed. I've never seen anything like this. There was not enough room in the boarding area so everyone was pushing and shoving. I can't recommend Ethiopian airways to anyone after this experience."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit strange - everyone seated at the gate had to get up, leave the area, and then wait in line to have their passports checked before sitting back down in the same area. After that though, boarding was perfectly smooth & honestly one of the fastest I’ve seen!"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Poor registration, Long queue for bagage scanning in very hot airport Aircraft and business seat just medium"
Pros: "I had an extra seat in my row which was nice."
Cons: "No flight overnight is ever very comfortable. It’s difficult to sleep."
Pros: "Friendly crew"

Pros: "Seats are delapidated and food is ok!"
Cons: "Crew were very good"
Pros: "Personnel were good. Food on ET is always great."
Cons: "Technical problem caused massive disruption in flight for all. Missed connections and forced unpaid for overnight in Addis. Truly terrible experience"
Cons: "comfort of the seats. the made the flight early to 0730 am and still serving lunch at 0830 in the morning. All was bad"
Cons: "Did not provide special meal although I called ahead to request it."
Pros: "The crew where very pleasant, The service on the plane was good you had a choice of what meal you would like to have you also had a choice of any movie or entertainment that you would like to see or play there was more leg space and much more comfortable seating"
Cons: "I can’t fault anything on this flight."
Cons: "Bad plane flight was cancelled. Horrible experience."
Pros: "That I finally had an on time flight with Ethiopian airlines, having suffered through an absolutely miserable outbound flight"
Cons: "On connecting from Bangkok to Nairobi passengers are funneled into a security waiting area with no water, coffee, duty free shopping- absolutely nothing but dirty toilets- for a 2+ hour layover. Bole airport is surely one of the most disfunctional airports on the planet."
Pros: "The friendliness and willingness to assist passengers when they notice one facing a challenge"
Cons: "The chairs in economy do not give sufficient leg room especially for tall persons, this would present a challenge on long haul"
Cons: "I sent them an email about an issue with my flight but they didn't get back to me"
Pros: "הצוות היה נעים, רגיש ואדיב"
Cons: "האוכל לא היה טעים או מגוון, חסרו ירקות טריים או פירות מרעננים , האוכל היה מבוסס על פחמימות לא היו אזניות זמינות, לא הוקרן מסך של מסלול הטיסה , ונתוני הטיסה,"
Pros: "Very helpful, attentive and kind cabin staff. New aircraft !!!"
Cons: "Somewhat dirty ( and smelly ) aircraft even though they are a very new fleet. Some seats had strange patches and stains. Overall cabin experience can be improved in terms of hygiene and food quality ( food was mediocre or slightly worse)"
Cons: "Aircraft change led to massive confusion. No priority boarding for business class. Inept and care-least service from the head cabin attendant in business class. Zilch entertainment. Inedible dinner"
Cons: "It was a night flight (~4-5 hours), however, 80% the time the lights were on... people did not want to eat/drink... and get disturbed constantly by the crew. We just wanted to sleep. Without lights"
Cons: "Poor service, not organized, dirty aircraft"
Pros: "It was nice and cool just that the space between seats were small compared to the flight from lagos to Addis."
Cons: "Lack of customer service. Due to the delay in Washington, we missed our connecting flight. Though the EA personnel knew of our delay and missed flight, we still had to wait in line at the counter for 3 hours in order for them to put us up in a hotel and make other arrangements. Though they had 15 hours to do this for us, they did not. They served some customers and did not serve others. There was no communication whatsoever, they just handed us papers without explaining what was happening."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Comfort level and food."
Pros: "Excellent staff, professional and friendly. Nice food"
Cons: "Aircraft "medium" range with business seat not very comfortable. No special attention to business class passengers at arrival"
Cons: "Addis Airport is terribly organized and far too small for the volume of people they're pushing through it (which is probably the lead cause of the poor organization)."
Cons: "I ordered a vegan food. The crew had difficulties in delivering this simple thing"
Cons: "Other travelers kept walking through our aisle, which was not an aisle. Therefore I was constantly getting bumped in the middle of the night waking me up. This area needs to be roped off to make other passengers walk around as to not disturb people sitting in that row. I arrived at my destination completely exhausted due to lack of sleep. Ethiopian Air provides horrible service."
Pros: "That they told me my bag would transfer and then it didn't...I loved that."
Cons: "After asking multiple times, I was reassured that my checked bag would go to my final destination. Yet my bag has still not been found."
Cons: "same flight crew"
