Cons: "Due to mishandling of the situation, we were not allowed to board the plane, despite the fact there was no restriction for us not to do so."
Cons: "Better food options but that’s for all airlines!"
Cons: "Good service no delayed"
Pros: "I like everything about this airline... from the ticket prices, to their membership in Star Alliance, to their awesome customer service."
Pros: "Very uncomfortable"
Cons: "More cushion"
Cons: "Yes amazing"
Pros: "Excellent food and service.Very comfortable flight.Crew was great."
Cons: "Check in staff not so friendly but process was OK"
Pros: "Entertainment package"
Cons: "I paid extra money for the upgrade to sit the exit but only to be told after boarding that due to my size and age that I can’t sit on the exit aisle. Then I said okay, I’ll move if I get a refund and the the flight attendant said that they will. So then I swapped to a middle seat by the attendants directive all the way in the back. After the plane takes off, the flight attendant said that can not refund me the upgrade. I was extremely frustrated and felt discriminated because of my age and size. I demanded to sit back to my original assigned seat but they refused. Not to mention, the flight was delayed!! Unpleasant experience and a rip off."
Cons: "Crowd highly liked company deserves crowd"
Pros: "Never flown TK before and was satisfied. Very good crew, acceptable entertainment, good food."
Cons: "Not their fault but 14-hour flights are exhausting."
Pros: "I really liked the selection of food, beverages, and movies"
Cons: "Economy is SO cramped for such a long flight."
Pros: "It was the best"
Cons: "The best"
Cons: "The food service movies the crew"
Cons: "THE bathroom esp at the back of the plan read very dirty. Went floors a d trash that was overflowing."
Cons: "Seats are not comfortable you end up with bad neck pain"
Cons: "Extra extra and private security passing from Istanbul airport"
Pros: "Surprisingly good food. Great in flight movie selection."
Pros: "When I missed my flight from Belgrade to Istanbul due to plane being late 45 min.and I missed my flight to LA, they gave me a free accommodation and meals."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that nobody told me that Ataturk Airport in Istanbul is so big that you can not make to connect flight on time for an hour.Especially if you flight has been late to depart like mine from Belgrade due to the rain. I thought I will make it to the connect flight to LA but the gate was already closed. I was instructed to do multiple errands, to get Turkish visa, etc all on my expense to be able to exit the transit as an American citizen and be able to take Turkish airlines bus to the hotel.The hotel was fine and the meals. The problem was that they calculate bus traveling time wrong in the hotel and put people on the bus next day too late, so due to the traffic jam, we barely made it to the airport, and then we had to stress the officials to put us on the fast passport control lane due to boarding time."
Cons: "Very hot inside the plane"
Pros: "They are literally the BEST airline I have every flown! All the crew are so nice and it is their policy to give you all of the comforts - pillows, blankets, headphones, drinks (including alcohol), movies, musics, games, meals, snacks and probably more! I don't think they have a way to take money! This was the best flying experience I have ever had! The plane itself was also very nice. There was touchscreen in front of me with all kinds of entertainment plus a USB charger for my phone. They also made sure the closest connecting flight folks had gate attendants waiting for them. The service is phenomenal all the way around!"
Pros: "Eat fare , amazing customer services . Turkish airlines s pretty good. And affordable .."
Cons: "Nothing , it was all good"
Pros: "It was great. I told everyone about it."
Cons: "It was hot and the served the food very late. Passengers were all hungry and complaining."
Pros: "Entertainment is good, many movies and games for kids."
Cons: "Flight attendants are rude and food was terrible! No menu and no selection to choose."
Pros: "Flight crew was pleasant."
Cons: "When I check-in for flight from Rome to Istanbul and Istanbul to Los Angeles, only the first leg of trip was confirmed correctly. For the leg from Istanbul to Los Angeles I confirmed a window seat when I checked-in online. However, when I arrived at the airport I has a middle seat and could not change it and the 15 hour flight was miserable. I also asked to be upgraded to business class and told it would be $3,500.00, which was ridiculous."
Pros: "The flight was great and the service was wonderful. The plane was new and clean. A huge plus was the video entertainment in every seat along with headphones and USB Charging Port. They poured me a double Glenlivet scotch on the rocks at NO CHARGE!"
Cons: "I booked three round-trip tickets from LAX to Athens. Our daughter did not fly with us there but we checked with ticketing in LAX and they booked her seat anyway. The issue came when we tried to leave Athens the airlines then said that I had to purchase a one-way ticket! They informed me that the flight was cancelled for my daughter because she didn't fly to Athens. The ticket was almost $1,500.00 and I intend to get my money back but it was unfortunate that they had to charge me for it in the first place."
Pros: "The food was pretty good"
Cons: "The seats were too close so you could hardly move when the seat in front reclined. They didn't clean the bathroom during an entire 13 hour flight and it needed it."
Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "The food service was really bad. Not happy with the meal choice."
Pros: "Every thing was ok"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled due to weather conditions, that's fine! I never found out till I had to contact the airlines and verify of this piece of information after I heard it from news. Kayak never notified me, nor offered any alternatives!! Poor service!"
Cons: "boarding the treat you like animals"
Pros: "Service by the onboard crew was flawless. Food was excellent, and fully reclining seats in Business Class made a 13+ hour flight very comfortable."
Pros: "The flight was empty so got 3 seats to myself"
Cons: "Vegetarian meals were not good. Its a 13 and half hour leg and when in the middle of that long journey when asked for a snack, the crew was not aware of the options that were listed on their very own menu. They ended up telling me that they must have run out of one of the options listed in the menu which they were not aware even existed 2 minutes ago."
Pros: "Appreciated the lights being dimmed, to make it more restful."
Cons: "Would have enjoyed ice with the juice, or colder beverages."
Pros: "Food; power outlet."
Pros: "really great service"
Pros: "I liked the aircraft and how clean it was. Service was excelllent as eelll as the crew"
Cons: "Nothing. Just wish the flight wasn't 13 hours"
Pros: "Good food Good service very good entertainment"
Pros: "Crew works very hard to provide good service."
Cons: "Once again, there was a bathroom out of order.... this puts too much use on the others and it showed. Late start again, too."
Pros: "Everything was good except the food wasn't good"
Cons: "The food wasn't good"
Pros: "Everything. The crew was very accommodating as well as helpful."
Pros: "Good Food, Comfortable Seats & Good Entertainment Options"
Pros: "they are good thank you very mush"
Pros: "Great service overall"
Pros: "Professional services especially from crews. Boarding/comfort/food/entertainment are good too."
Cons: "It is better that the food has Turkish style."
Pros: "that we got to check in 2 bags"
Cons: "-lost one of my bags"
Pros: "Two really good meals and there were snacks in the back for the time inbetween. The crew was friendly. This was the best flight I've experienced in a few years."
Cons: "Too little leg room. My knees touched the seat in front."
Due to terminal renovations, there was inadequate seating. Couldn’t understand the gate agents announcements with her mask on. Could use more legroom in seats
The gate crew in Paris was HORRIBLE. I purchased a Premium Economy seat and was "involuntarily downgraded" to regular economy, splitting up my family. There was no apology and they were very rude. And then they subjected me to an additional security check. When I asked about a refund for the difference, they simply said, "check with the ticket agent in LA when you get there." But due to flight delays, we didn't get to the ticket counter until 11 p.m. and they couldn't help me. The flight crew was astonished this had happened, and they tried to be helpful. But the whole experience was pretty lousy.
Luggage handling was disgraceful and lots of luggage was left behind after being delayed for more than an hour.
Nice,o time,and great foods and services.
The de-planing process could have been better in Buenos Aires - it took a long time before the aero bridge was connected - not the fault of Air France..
Cons: "The Premium Eco seats are a catastrophe. They don't recline: the seats only slide down slightly but the upper part of your body doesn't move much. This makes for a poor experience, especially on a night flight. Except if you need the extra width, Eco has better value."
Cons: "They have a terrible communication problem, they never communicated why the flight was late, they never communicated what they were doing or what was happening. Bad customer service. Bad communication with the client. They told us when I asked several times that we would not lose our connection and that everything was fine and that was not the case. We lost the connection. No one told us anything. Another problem was that the girl in the boarding process removed the suitcases tickets from the boarding pass and did not want to return them, and held it without any cause. The flight staff went looking for us. Pretty sad and disappointed by their service. I understand that they were causes outside the airline but must communicate to the client. They cannot remain silent and say nothing."
Cons: "Comfort plus seats need some work. Very thin padding on a hard seat. The leg rest needs to come up higher so you don’t slide down while semi reclined. Nice compromise between business and coach though."
Pros: "The seats were spacious and the crew was wonderful. The crew actually made the long flight more tolerable. Will seek out Delta/Air France for further international flights."
Pros: "Spacious business class seats, excellent meals"
Cons: "Lack of ventilation in cabin, and staff refusal to turn heaters down (in September), very limited entertainment options."
Pros: "Quick boarding, comfortable seating. Great food!"
Cons: "The seats and IFE were a bit outdated. Comfortable, but outdated. My family had issues with their screens and one had to use the remote as the touch screen was no longer functional."
Cons: "Crew on the ground was very rude"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and extremely helpful!"
Cons: "The food could have been better"
Cons: "The craft is a bit old. Harsh landing."
Pros: "Average crew. Average seat."
Cons: "They could have controlled screening babies better. They just let them scream....."
Pros: "Red wine was excellent"
Cons: "Bright lights on throughout flight, would have been nice to dim lights for late night flight so passengers could rest"
Cons: "Excelente aerolínea"
Cons: "Surprised one flight that from what it looked to be, once flight took off a older couple came out of the cockpit are and took a seat in business class. I thought I had seen someone in civilian clothes setting in a area right behind the pilots chair. They did return to cockpit area near end of flight"
Pros: "great food, entertainment and seat comfort"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and always came around with water."
Cons: "The “vegetarian” option was tuna which isn’t vegetarian and there was no vegetarian snack. With the hundreds of dietary and religious food restrictions you would think having a vegetarian option would be much more attainable.. They also didn’t make an announcement about our flight being late."
Pros: "Air France has the best crews! They really go the extra mile."
Cons: "My skis were lost on the way to Riga and had to be delivered 2 days later to Vilnius. That said, the situation was handled very professionally."
Pros: "Very little"
Cons: "Flight was very crowded. Flight crew kept bumping into my seat and never apologized"
Pros: "Crew was very nice. Food was good and tasty."
Cons: "Plane seemed a little worn, which surprised me since it was an A380. Not that old. I had purchased an upgrade to a seat with more legroom, only to find out there was no USB plug for charging my phone. All standard seats have them. Would have been nice to be warned about that."
Cons: "wine selection divider between seats"
Pros: "I did like Flying with Delta and Air France but not with Ukrainian airlines (when booking , it should tell you what airlines will be used , to make a better selection )"
Cons: "When I purchased my flight ticket , I purchased with a checked bag (23 kg /50 #) how ever ( who will fly to Ukraine with a 10kg suitcase) I booked for a KLM flight , they used (partener airlines ) when I arrived to LA I flew with Delta , they checked my Suitcase at no cost all the way to my final destinations , that was expected ! When I was going to return , they made me payed 120 dollars ( in Kiev , Ukraine (UIA) , I was very disappointed and I really will love an explanation about all this !"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by at least an hour leaving Paris - a regular situation I experienced with AF."
Pros: "Crew was nice although one fellow was a little too “nervous” and looked bossy"
Cons: "Food was awful. Asked for vegan meal they got it half right, as vegan is not vegetarian. And the second meal or snack as they say was not vegetarian or vegan at all."
Cons: "Engine noise in the cabin is loud."
Cons: "Missed flight due to lack of direction, last minute gate change and they shut door in our face after telling us they were holding plane"
Pros: "Very nice stews. Food was A plus compared to US airlines AND included. Great list of movies etc."
Pros: "The crew worked hard, but the food was below the French standards."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 2.5 hours and the passengers spent this time in the cabin without a/c."
Pros: "Great service, decent food"
Cons: "There was no WiFi on the plane"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Did not seat together passengers, although booked and checked in at the same time."
Pros: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "We flew with our special needs child without requesting any particular accommodations except for gluten free meals. The gate staff and flight crew identified him and allowed us special bordering that facilitated the process. That act of kindness is a rare experience on our part. Thank you Air France staff!"
Cons: "Plane left more than 40 minutes late with no explanation or apology."
Cons: "It is very difficult to get around CDG airport with a disabled person. There is no shuttle. By the time we got to check in, we were ten minutes late. They would not check us in, and we paid over $700 to change tickets to the next flight. When I complained, I was told to stop being rude or I would get no ticket at all. My mother is 94 years old and we did the best we could given the circumstance."
Cons: "at no point when buying my ticket did the site say zero bags were included. In fact, when purchasing it said that information about baggage was not available.Shocked to have to pay 50 dollars for one bag. I am member of Flying Blue. One bag has always been included in the price of a ticket flying transatlantic."
Cons: "Took very long from landing/ arrival until baggage could be collected. Priority luggage came out last!"
Pros: "In cabin crew was attentive and friendly. Food was good and came at good times. Middle bathroom on Airbus 380 was big and comfy."
Cons: "Boarding was not too well organized and I followed Security's direction who put me in wrong line and I wasn't able to board with my priority group. Sitting in exit row with no floor storage so this delay made it hard to find overhead storage above my seat. (Grrrr) Entertainment system didn't work which made the flight feel LOOONG. (They offered an in-flight credit, but I'd paid for premium exit row seat and had to choose between moving to working system in crowded middle seat or keep premium, exit seat. I decided to have them move me to a seat with a working entertainment system, which were available and they'd offered, but never happened.) When I got home, I discovered the gift I purchased with in-flight credit and my own money wasn't the one I'd requested from Duty Free catalog so now I have to figure out how to solve this problem. (COULDN'T GET IT RIGHT.) Premium exit row seat was narrow, due to in-seat tray table & entertainment system, but seatbelt mounts and thinly padded seat made it even more uncomfortable on a long flight."
Pros: "Speed, professionalism"
Pros: "This is what happens when you get roped in by a low price."
Cons: "Disorganization which led to not being able to pre-purchase baggage. Then bad info at airport which led to multiple trips through security trying to make weight on a bag that should have been checked but was told didn't need to. Ended up missing flight, having to rebook at full fare and no one knows where the bag that was checked is. STAY AWAY!"
Pros: "The crew was good and very good pilot's"
Cons: "No leg room between seats"
Pros: "Seat comfort in business class Professional and friendly crew"
Cons: "Food not tasty Limited entertainment even in business class (such small and old screen style) Newspapers available to be much more diversified When is the WiFi going to be available?"
Pros: "Friendly crew and exit row had nice legroom."
Cons: "Ran out of the (already not sufficient) salty crackers and, as the flight had been delayed, we had a one packet of cracker 'lunch' at noon... the flight really should have had a sandwich or at least something slightly more substantial."
Pros: "Loved the movie selection and the food was good too."
Cons: "Too many interruptions. Every time there's an announcement, it interrupts the movies and some of the announcements were completely unnecessary and there were so many of them, it was like constant interruptions, really annoying."
Pros: "movies were great, watched a lot of them food, while nothing to write home about, was at least tasty and not inedible the staff was great, friendly, welcoming, hard working loved that we could have wine and snacks"
Cons: "we had paid for the exit row and had a luxurious amount of room. But when we tried to sleep, our fellow passengers came and stood at our feet and talked so loudly that we could not possibly sleep. They stayed there for more than an hour. Would have loved for the staff to maybe ask them to tone it down, if not move."
Pros: "Efficient boarding. Interesting hot food. Entertainment variety very good."
Cons: "Business class seats hard. Did not flatten out for sleep."
Pros: "Boarding was fast and efficient. Flight attendant staff were friendly and very courteous."
Cons: "Vegetarian food choices are too limited. Snack and beverage availability on long flights like this are too few and far between."
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "Seats are too close together"
Cons: "Entertainment system issues throughout the entire aircraft. The audio jacks in my entire row were inoperable."
Pros: "No problems on the flight. Attendants were nice."
Cons: "It was unusual that we had to go through another security station when changing planes. The home made jam I transported from Paris made it through the Paris security, but was confiscated by the American security. It made my trip home upsetting."
Pros: "Everything was perfect on the flight. The service, the food and the crew."
Cons: "Seats are a bit small. Not very comfortable and touch screen of entertainment system was slow."
Pros: "Roomy seat even in economy with good entertainment options includes in fare."
Cons: "Left 45 minutes late as they couldn't deplane in Calgary due to gate ramp issue on a very light travel evening. Cabin was way too warm to."
Pros: "The crew was so nice and helpful. They are all wonderful people at LAX and Regina, SK."
Cons: "The plane was hot and cramped. The air didn’t work right causing the flight to be warm and sweaty. My tray table was broken and wasn’t able to hold food and drinks flatly."
Pros: "time and straight flight"
Cons: "on time is Key"
Pros: "Overall not bad."
Cons: "Flight delay, tight seats."
Pros: "Crew we're very accommodating and friendly."
Cons: "Seats extremely narrow and back support non-existent."
Pros: "Great service wide enough seats. great company overall"
Cons: "In-seat entertainment - screen not working"
Pros: "I liked the fact that they provided beverages and food."
Cons: "I hated how there was NO entertainment. Honestly on a 12 + hour flight this was a bit ridiculous. No tv, or movies... no screen on the seat at all. Not even a big one for everyone to enjoy! It was horrible... The seats were so cramped and the staff seemed a bit unprofessional and sloppy looking. The food was pretty bad as well. I've had my fair share amount of flights and honestly this was probably the worse one i've gone on with the amount of hours it took to get to our destination. I wouldn't have mind too much if there was no entertainment on a 2 or 3 hour flight..."
Pros: "A woman in Toronto at the customs area for air Canada helped us get seats when we didn't realize we were on standby. She was very kind and helpful!"
Pros: "on-board service"
Cons: "Late departures (about 30 minutes each way) with corresponding late arrivals. On the flight LAX to Vancouver due to late arrival of the plane, on the return flight supposedly because of a delay in loading luggage (the flight was fully boarded for 30+minutes before loading was completed). The late arrival in Los Angeles led to further delay as there was no available gate to accept us so we disembarked 50+minutes after the scheduled time."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and nice. Let you jump to other open seats once in the air."
Cons: "Seats were incredibly tight. If you're taller than 5'10", your knees will touch the front seat. You can pay to upgrade or just change your seats for free if the bigger ones are open. They won't check you in to your connecting flight like other airlines so beware as others have entibies this. And don't expect to be on time. 3if 4 of our flights were delayed ranging from 30 minutes to 3 hours. Hope that you have a long connection."
Pros: "Decent crew. Decent collection of movies."
Cons: "Overall, this flight service from Montreal for Los Angeles (6 hrs flight) service was worse than the interconnection flight I have experienced in Europe (2 hrs flight). There is no snack provided on this journey and you have to pay for everything (snacks and even the headphones). On the European flights, the snack was provided multiple times for short duration of the flight."
Pros: "This was the absolute worst experience of my life. Out flight from Calgary to LAX was on the complete other side of the airport than our connector to San Diego. After a delay we had a short amount of time to get to the next flight. We literally were told to just cross the parking lot. Well... that ended up being a 25 minute run across the airport to only have to go thru security again. After navigating construction and parking structures we got to our gate 10 minutes late and would not be let on the flight. There was zero communication, sympathy or help from the United Airlines staff. We were told it was not their problem because we came in through Air Canada- BUT we booked through United! All in all it was an absolute nightmare that ended in us renting a car at 12am and driving back to San Diego with zero compensation from United Airlines"
Cons: "No communication between airlines! No customer service to fix their lack of planning and communication. Just terrible all around"
Pros: "No snacks with drinks"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for at least an hour."
Cons: "The flight was at least 1/2 late leaving. We were told we had to detour to Toronto to refuel as the plane couldn't hold enough fuel to make it to Los Angles. This caused us to make an unplanned stop which added a total of another 2 3/4 hours to our trip. Really not enough fuel to make a trip we paid for. The cabin was very warm, and we had already eaten our food we brought. Many people missed connections... Not pleased with Air Canada"
Cons: "Only told after tickets purchased, that a visa was needed to change planes in Canada! This information needs to be provided prior to purchase. I paid one-third the cost of the ticket to cancel it and then had to book another ticket closer to departure which was more expensive. Have never heard of such a thing. I live overseas and but had a valid U.S. visa for my travel, but couldn't change planes without applying tor a temporary resident visa which takes longer to obtain than the time before I needed to fly. Very upset and disappointed. Will certainly avoid purchasing from Air Canada again."
Pros: "flight was comfortable."
Cons: "Food was not of good quality, had too much spice and salt. Fruit was a little too hard to cut. Toilets trash was not cleaned from previous flight. She Asian movies were same as in the previous flight. Need to provide more choices on SE Asian movies."
Pros: "Ease and quickness of flight, and attentiveness of the crew"
Cons: "Deboarding at lax was too long"
Cons: "The flight was very cold, even though everyone in my row had their air vents closed."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "No food"
Cons: "lack of seat/leg room...."
Pros: "North American flights are definitely not as comfortable as in Asian flights"
Pros: "Was offered water frequently :-) at least didn't have to ask or pay for it. Entertainment was offered. Limited choices."
Cons: "There was no announcement for boarding and we found out only when we ASKED personally. Nothing on the board, nothing through speakers. Smaller aircraft for this leg of the journey, not to blame, but seats are old and need refurbishing. They're not torn or anything but not comfortable at all. Restroom very small and uncomfortable like a truck stop. Always a line at the door."
Cons: "They didn't even let me check in. Spent 12 extra hours at the airports to get home."
Pros: "Entertainment on this flight was comparatively better than the flight we took from LAX to Toronto...Snacks was also better on this flight than the LAX to Toronto flight which really confuses me as to why?"
Cons: "The wait time though for our flight was 6 hours and there were 2 or 3 other earlier flights to LAX that day.."
Pros: "Quick flight and smooth ride. Same for boarding and exiting."
Cons: "Entertainment was not working well. Headphone jack broken and on board screen was spotty. Crew members did not offer anything to soften the situation."
Pros: "Boarding was relatively painless. Flight was on time. What i didnt like was the crew. The flight from Toronto to Los Angeles was five hours. They had the fasten seat belts light on the entire trip because they said the turbulence was bad. I have been on alot of flights and let me tell you that the turbulence was not bad at all. After three hours prople decided enough was enough and started going to the restroom. The crew would get all bent out of shape and get on the PA yo please stay in your seats and not use the restrooms at this time. Really!! Well that didnt happen. The only thing they give you is one free drink. No penuts, cookies or pretzels. If you want food you have to pay for it. I sat by the window and my window was all greasy. I couldent really see out of it. I did use the rest room and it was pretty clean."
Cons: "Flight was on time and the restroom was clean"
Pros: "I liked how we got there safely."
Cons: "I did not like the fact I was cramped."
Cons: "my luggage and my baby's car seat was delayed. I arrived at 10 pm and my luggage and baby's car seat was missing. I was told they will deliverer it to me the next day, but I have not received my stuff now its been two days"
Cons: "From LA to Toronto & Montreal back to LA, was a 4-6 hr flight where they don't feed you or give you blankets. When I asked why blankets are not available, the crew said, "because that's all what we'll be doing is handing out blanket." The crew should realize that providing comfort for their passengers is a huge part of their service they should provide. This was my first time flying with air canada and I was very disappointed. Air Canada will definitely not be on my top airlines to fly next time."
Pros: "Extra care for passengers"
Pros: "great seats much roomier than other airlines"
Pros: "The cabin crew was fantastic."
Cons: "The food options were very limited. On such a long flight, I would recommend stocking up more."
Pros: "Upgraded unexpectedly"
Cons: "Got delayed for almost 2 hours. Unacceptable"
Pros: "On time. Clean. Efficient"
Pros: "Seat had decent leg room, but had to pay an additional $60+ dollars for it."
Cons: "Paying for food on a flight that's over 5 hours is very poor form. Food was of very poor quality. Beverage service came around once early on and then not again until almost landing. Asked for another beverage about half way through the flight and it never came. Plane was dirty."
Cons: "I was expecting more from my $300+ upgrade."
Pros: "crews were knowledeable. foods are so cheap."
Cons: "they need to improve their food quality and customer service."
Pros: "Despite departing late we made it relatively on time"
Cons: "My screen didn't work. The outlet in the seat was also broken. The connection to the Internet was weak and there was a lot of turbulence."
Pros: "Great valve"
Cons: "Delay in boarding by about 20 minutes. Had to stand in line for about 1 hour because we were not allowed in the terminal seating area until the previous plane's passengers disembarked."
Cons: "Air Canada is terrible"
Cons: "Entertainment system was not working and in one of our seats the Audio was not working"
Pros: "No food offered on a 6 hour flight, but nice flight crew and good entertainment system."
Pros: "It was smooth all the way around. Food was amazing 👏"
Pros: "The efficiency of the whole process"
Cons: "The cabin attendants need to be warmer and more friendly"
Cons: "Staff behavior & regular check on entertainment system as my screen was not working in 9 hr long journey"
Pros: "The crew members were very accommodating and friendly. They do a wonderful job. When I told them that the power was not working in my seat and that I needed it for my CPAP (I call it my anti-snoring device), they arranged for me to move to another seat where the power worked for the CPAP. When the power did not work in the new seat for my laptop, they offered to let me charge it in a more powerful outlet near the galley."
Cons: "The power didn't work for my laptop. It did work for my CPAP device. Some of the seat control buttons were out of order."
Pros: "Yes.seat was just ok but not quiet comfortable"
Cons: "I think Ethiopian is reasonably good.I travelled to Seattle via delhi .from delhi to sea I travelled by Ana the reason was the fare of Ethiopian (Enugu to Seattle,round trip)was much higher and also you spend 37 hours before u reach your destination,it is too long.why can't u fly to usa direct ,then"
Pros: "Excellent service and on time performance."
Pros: "Excellent service and on time performance."
Pros: "Not much, actually."
Cons: "None of the air stewardess has a smile on their face when talking to or serving passengers. I’m not sure they know how to engage with passengers in a friendly way. My entertainment screen wasn’t working. After resetting, it took them an hour to inform me that I could move to another seat if I wanted to, as they couldn’t resolve the problem with the screen. The food lacked in flavour and the sausage served for breakfast was undercooked."
Cons: "We are stuck at the airport because Ethiopian Airlines sent out false and miseading update stating that it’s flight was leaving at 6 PM as opposed to the scheduled 7:30 AM. Because of that no one showed up for the flight and there are no direct flights tomorrow that they would put us on! My father recently had a heart attack and this is causing him immense suffering! Additionally patient with emergencies are waiting to see my husband tomorrow and Tuesday but will not be able to because he stuck at the airport! They are refusing to put us on an airline us direct flight tomorrow! Also we have spent at least seven hours on the phone and misleading (and that’s to put it kindly) statements have been told."
Cons: "We had requested vegetarian meals, which were not provided on either leg of the Ethiopian Airlines flight. In addition, we had to pay an extra baggage fee and the payment process required us to wait for 45 minutes at the check in desk while the agents tried to sort out a problem wiht their computer system. They claimed that the problem was with the integration of their system with SAA's system."
Cons: "Spent 10 hours in a broken seat... wouldn’t recline. Screen on next seat was broken so I couldn’t move there. Bathroom out of toilet paper and at the end of the flight there was SO MUCH TRASH AND STUFF EVERYWHERE it looked like the ground at an outside 3 day concert. I’ve never seen such a filthy plane. And the food needs improvement."
Pros: "I was a bit hesitant to fly Ethiopian Air for such a long flight (Dublin to LAX) however it turned out to be the best leg of multi-segment trip (all other flights were Aer Lingus or Delta and Ethiopian Air was far superior to both of those carriers). Flight attendants were friendly, the physical space was comfortable and spacious, the food was plentiful and delicious. Movies offered were relatively new and the IFE worked well. This flight is a continuation from Addis Ababa to LAX so when we boraded in Dublin most people were already onboard. It was a bit difficult to find space in the overhead bins but with a little rearranging of smaller packages by other passengers, we were able to fit our carry-ons in the overhead bin near our seats."
Pros: "The crew very Politécnica and sensitive"
Cons: "To get the same food twice in the same flight To be awaken by the serving if the meals"
Pros: "Lots of leg room, pillows, blankets..."
Cons: "Breakfast was cold and runny eggs, not so nice. And no vegetarian option offered."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Poor registration, Long queue for bagage scanning in very hot airport Aircraft and business seat just medium"
Pros: "Landing on time"
Cons: "Limited choice of food- no vegetarian options, only meat."
Pros: "Very calm, professional and willing to help you enjoy the flight as much as possible. They show true concern and not a detached professional management that you get from most flight attendants of other airlines."
Pros: "Overall it was good flying experience. They upgraded me to an exit row for free when I checked in and asked, which was nice. We had a blanket, pillow, and toothbrush kit on our seats. They fed us and had in flight entertainment. This was a 10 hour flight, so its so important to get these types of amenities. I flew a different airline to my destination, and they didn't feed us at all! It was terrible! Ethiopian was much better!"
Cons: "The food wasn't very good (but most airline food isn't), the flight attendants didn't seem to be working much of the flight, just hanging out with each other (I was seated near them), and I really wish there was more room to get up, move around, and stand. On a 10 hour flight you can't sit the whole time. Wish the seats were a little wider, especially for such long flights."
Pros: "Boeing 737 - 800 us great"
Cons: "Waiting room at Gate 1B"
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Check in was a joke in Dublin, only 22 pax and they did a full team talk to start despite everyone bein there. In LAX they parked the plane in the middle of no where, and waited 30 mins before debark started, as the plane was so far away the terminal it took an hour for the bags. Food was horrible on both flights"
Pros: "Loved having traditional ethiopian food"
Cons: "One flight attendant condescending but she seemed to disappear after takeoff and the other ladies were excellent"
Pros: "We were told by United that Ethiopian Airlines does not allow more than 2 checked bags per customer, but that is absolutely not the case. We ended up driving to LA and found that Ethiopian accepts as many bags as we will pay for."
Pros: "Great entertainment center and seat back video."
Cons: "No Wifi available"
Cons: "Food horrible. Poor infrequent service, cramped seating, poor movie selection"
Pros: "The plane is spacious lost of leg room"
Cons: "can improve on the food"
Cons: "Price. Ease of early checkin"
Cons: "Your cheapo ripoff insurance wouldn't pay when I had to cancel due to terrorism threats in and around Ouagadougou. Is there ever a better reason to cancel a flight?!"
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: "I was pleasantly surprised at the entertainment. Other than that, everything was pretty good. Nothing stood out as exceptional and nothing was particularly bad."
Cons: "The seats weren't the most comfortable, but on a 10 hour flight, nothing is."
Cons: "My monitor/screen never worked; could never watch a movie despite asking the flight attendants to reset my screen several times. Pretty bad for this 10+ hour flight. I have had much better experiences with crew, staff, friendliness, responsiveness, etc, on almost every other airline."
Cons: "We boarded around midnight and after supper, I am accustomed to a few hours of the lights turned off for rest. Even though I requested the crew said it was not policy and I should use the yellow mask (which sadly does not block out the light). I think a few hours off dimmed lights would greatly enhance comfort levels."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and the crew courteous. In fact the passengers all applauded when we landed."
Cons: "To reach Addis Abba/Arusha from the west coast of the US by Ethiopian Air, one must go through Dublin. I wish there was a Seattle to Addis Abba choice."
Cons: "Delays, Delays, Delays, 2 hours late !!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "The flight left on time and arrived 20 minutes faster than scheduled. I usually order Kosher meal and enjoyed the food. Unfortunately the Kosher meal they started to serve recently is the WORST food I have had on board. Please avoid the KOSHER!"
Pros: "Was lucky to be able to get 3 seats in a row, so could sleep.. They were able to put me in 3 seats again on return, so all good for me... Crew nice, leg room decent, entertainment was fine... Movie choices were not best I've seen, but first world problem... Overall I would recommend.."
Cons: "The return journey time from Dublin sucks... 6am flight, so u have to stay up all night pretty much... If they could change that, it would be amazing... Food not great, so you would be better off bringing your own stuff..."
Pros: "Paid about 1000 round trip. Staff was attentive and respectful specially addis to LA. New aircraft was good and comfortable."
Cons: "Entertainment needs to have more recent blockbuster. Food variety should be expanded, need more choice"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Pros: "Flight crew were very nice and helpful. Plenty of room for carry on baggage."
Cons: "Veg food selections were very limited. A breakfast without meat choice would have been better than yet another rice dish. Some of the more recent movies started in the middle or near through end. Tried to rewind and restart but neither worked The toilet paper was not refilled at the stopover in Dublin and we ran out before LA!"
Cons: "security boarding in adis abeba"
Cons: "food, service"
Pros: "The fact that I had a row of three to myself"
Cons: "I asked for an extra cup of coffee (cups very small) which didn't arrive until I reminded the stewardess several times. Flight was only half full. The food was very bad. A pink sausage and very, very dry bread, which absorbed all moisture in my mouth."
Pros: "During my trip, I enjoy the entertainment. In addition the boarding was excellent."
Cons: "I did not really enjoyed the food. I would not say it was not good but it was not my type. Well I guess this not my type of eating. In another word, I'm not use to the craft of the food."
Pros: "I flew on the 787 dreamliner, and it was THE BEST airplane I have ever flown on. The service was excellent and the seats were very comfortable. I highly recommend this."
Cons: "There was nothing that I did not like."
Pros: "The entertainment is quite interesting with latest movies"
Cons: "There is need for improvement on the food being served."
Pros: "Seats recline back a lot"
Cons: "Two hour delay to taking off due to engine issues"
Cons: "boarding announcements difficult to understand toilets not kept clean - not enough for size of plane stewards just OK - understaffed for a full 787 food mediocre - definitely better on other carriers to Africa spent 21 hrs in one plane from JRO to IAD in part caused by a 5 hr mechanical repair in Dublin pilot lead us to believe repair would be quick but it wasn't overall my worst international flight out of several dozen I will not fly Ethiopian Air again"
Pros: "Very organized"
Cons: "No issues, I found value for the amount I paid for my flight"
Cons: "Service for people not able to sleep on the long haul"
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "No tv in seats"
Pros: "Price, plane interior lighting, comfy seats, large entertainment options"
Cons: "Main course- Spinach manicotti."
Pros: "Very professional"
Pros: "Everything was quick, organized, and on time. The flight attendant was the best, made sure I had snacks and drinks."
Cons: "My only real issue was that, upon checking in online, I was informed that my boarding pass would be emailed to me. I don't believe it ever was. I checked all of my various email folders, including spam, and saw nothing."
Pros: "A pleasant surprise when overbooked flight was announced was that I could give up seat on Chicago to LA flight and get a direct flight Chicago to San Francisco and still make my connection to Santa Rosa. A very nice perk. Everything comfortable on flight."
Cons: "Can’t think of anything. Comfortable flight. Good flight attendents."
Pros: "Boarding was organized and prompt. Crew was fantastic."

Cons: "The only thing was that there were many loud children, there's no helping that."
Pros: "Great captain and crew."
Cons: "I prefer the entertainment on your own device."
Pros: "I booked a basic economy seat & ended up on a small plane, that was fully booked. It had 2 seats on either side of the aisle but it was surprisingly comfortable."
Cons: "The flight was short so thankfully I didn't have to pay for entertainment. It's a loser move to make the customers pay for everything; luggage, food & entertainment on my international flights, I always go for the companies that try to make the passengers comfortable and I'm going to think the same way on my local flights in the future"
Cons: "I had to miss an extra day of work because of the delay coming back to Los Angeles. Thankful the Kayak app informed me of the delay in time to not go so early but once at the airport, my flight got delayed 2 more times."
Pros: "leaving on time"
Cons: "Before taking off, one of the flight attendants unplugged my power charger and threw it on the floor. The same flight attendant asked if I wanted anything to drink. After stating water please, she never came back with any drink at all. Mind you, I paid for 1st class. I guess that's how United treats their 1st class passengers. Never again"
Pros: "Upgraded to extra comfort seating."
Cons: "Flight was 2 hours delayed."
Cons: "The was delayed three times without explanation."
Cons: "Worst trip ever! United overbooked the flight, and then I got delayed in LAX and had to cancel my trip all together! No planes in to Duluth or MSP until Monday. Had to fly home to Monterey!! Totally pissed customer right now"
Pros: "This united flight was overbooked and crowded due to end of holiday season. But it was managed well. Got a great in flight entertainment and comfortable seats. Crew was very friendly and helpful. It was almost like flying international minus the lunch. Baggage was also handled well."
Cons: "Temperature inside was a bit weird. It felt hot some times and later it felt cold and then hot again."
Cons: "On at least one leg of my trip both two and from my destination the flight was late. As if that wasn't bad enough, twice the plane was over sold and people had to be removed to stay and catch a later flight which in turn made the plane even later. Many people either had to run to catch their connection or missed it all together. Several of which had small children. I fly about half a dozen times a year and this was the worst of the year."
Pros: "Crew was lovely."
Cons: "Seats BARELY reclined, and leg room was minimal. The whole flight was very uncomfortable even for someone who's only 5'3" who flys regularly. Also, no in flight entertainment for a long flight. Total fail."
Pros: "I actually got bumped from this flight to one that went directly to my final destination of San Fransisco. What a great experience!"
Pros: "Price and being on time."
Cons: "The seats were terribly uncomfortable (including her flight to Chicago). The cushion made me slide down the seat and could not get comfortable."
Pros: "Great entertainment options. Thank you"
Cons: "our flight was delayed more than 2 hours due to weather. Of course, not a pleasure to have, after flying so far, but I appreciated how apologetic the crew and pilot was, under the circumstances"
Cons: "My flight from Grand Rapids MI to Denver CO was fine. When I arived in Denver i found out my flight was 3 hours lat because the plane had not left yet, i will never fly united again"
Pros: "Had a great night sleep despite it being delayed 3 hours."
Cons: "Flight got into LA and 2:00am but overall the service was good"
Pros: "terrific cabin crew"
Cons: "antiquated and limited music selection"
Cons: "One member of the crew was rude, advise if you dislike your job quit and find another!"
Pros: "Airline attendants were friendly and attentive."
Cons: "I sat in a window seat, yet had no window. I travelled with two other people, and none of us were able to sit together. The seats were more cramped than any other plane I had been on. The light above me was not even strong enough to illuminate the words of the book I was reading, so thankfully there was still some sunshine. There was also no in air entertainment, which I feel like is usually a standard on most planes nowadays."
Pros: "Crew were very professional"
Cons: "The wait to get to the gate was hard. After a 3 hour flight we had no gate as another plane took our assigned gate then another gate had a broken gangway so we had to use "air stairs" to depart"
Pros: "Got there on time, grabbed a seat from the counter, walked on the plane, sat down and 44 mins later I was in LA. Quick and easy"
Pros: "The flight was delayed, but once I got on I had a great flight!"
Cons: "The staff was rude, bored, and appeared to be bothered by any request that was made. The flight was oversold, luckily I was able to get a seat (like I had booked and planned for) but my flight was horribly long. I was stuck next to someone that was drenched in perfume, it was so bad it hurt my sinuses. Since the flight was oversold there were no seats where I could move. Not like the attendants would have helped me anyways. I will not fly United again if I can help it."
Cons: "It would have been helpful if hanging a garment bag were available, which was the case on my return flights to DC on American Airlines."
Pros: "The price Phoenix to LA and back for around $77"
Cons: "I got the shitty set by the exit door that didn't recline no big deal on such a short trip"
Pros: "The space in between the row in front was above average. The extra space is appreciated. Gate agents were kind and helpful during the boarding process."
Cons: "Sat on tarmac for 1 hour after landing. I know that wasn't the crews fault. But they could have given more frequent updates and at least told us what gate we were at so we could have a better idea when trying to frantically make our connections. Also the entertainment was pricey for a 5 hour flight that I paid good money for. I thinK basic movies should just be included in the fees"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable, the flight attendants were nice and accommodating, and the flight entertainment was first rate."
Pros: "Timely flight at all stages of embarkation and debarkation plus the small fee for the tapas box was well worth my payment!"
Cons: "There should be some free tv"
Cons: "Flight was an hour delayed and I was never told the reason.. There was no enough of the beverage I wanted to be given just one can of juice.."
Cons: "We were told multiple times it "wouldn't be much longer" until we got going...2 hours later we were still at the gate. The only thing done to make this time easier was to give all passengers free TV for the duration of the flight. Wow, thanks. I was lucky my layover was 2.5 hours so I just made my connection. Most other connecting passengers were not so lucky. Pay the extra money to take a better airline."
Pros: "It was my first time flying United Airlines and I was satisfied with the service. I would definitely recommend this airline. Everyone was very courteous and available to answer questions."
Pros: "Free wifi on board"
