Long trip not enough snacks

Cons: "Thanx ;)"
Pros: "It was clean. The aircraft was new, well maintained."
Cons: "The aircraft departed and landed late. I then missed my next connection. The majority of the people working seemed to care but there was no general way to make the late arrival and missed boarding overcome with a plan. It seems it was more my fault than the airlines."
Pros: "The movies"
Cons: "Lack of crying babies and lack of sleep seats too close lack of comfort"
Cons: "Difficult trip and costly delays both ways. Going to Cairo from Istanbul we were delayed 5 hrs so we arrived at 1AM instead of 8:30PM the night before."
Pros: "Crew was amazing!"
Cons: "Turkish Airlines was absolutely the worst airline I have ever been on. My flight going there was delayed 4 hrs & I missed my connection. They lost my bag & it arrived after 1 wk. Today, my flight was again delayed and I almost missed my layover. Again, my bag did not arrive & they ripped my carry on"
Pros: "Crew was very good and seat in long trip was comfortable"
Cons: "Boarding in first leg needs more organization"
Pros: "The seat is comfortable"

Cons: "No alcohol service, cabin lights not dimmed seeing it was a late night flight."
Pros: "Crew was nice and attentive to needs. I arrived safely at my destination so that’s all that matters."
Cons: "My first flight was delayed at CAI and no one informed us of this. I almost missed my connecting flight."
Cons: "The Turkish airline is always late at take off Security check on the airport was horrible Not friendly people who work there And definitely no any kind of help Which make me for the second time miss my connection flight And definitely loose more money"
Pros: "Nothing positive bad service"
Cons: "Bad service, flight delay, bad customer services"
Cons: "They lost my baggage and everything I had was in that bag!"
Pros: "Food and service"
Cons: "No assistance from any agent on getting to our gate for our connecting flight. This would have ensured we would have boarded our flight on time. We had to stay the night in Istanbul"
Pros: "Hot,moist washcloths & overnight travel kits (slippers, toothbrush & paste, sleep mask, ear plugs) , good food, flowers in bathroom - first class touches in economy !"
Pros: "Service is good, and food as well."

Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "Our flight from CAIRO was delayed for 3 and half hours. We missed our flight to Chicago. The Staff at Istanbul airport were very very unhelpful and rude. They did not try at all to find an alternative route for us. The lack of empathy and understanding was astounding. NEVER TURKISH AIRLINES AGAIN!"
Pros: "Food was fine"
Cons: "delay time and Istanbul airport"
Pros: "Do you like crying babies and kids running around the aircraft? If yes, then you would have loved this flight."
Cons: "Everything. This was the worst star alliance flight i have taken. No control over the passengers, and kids. Screaming children the entire flight. I was not able to sleep at all. They did not dim the lights until extremely late in the flight. Business class lights were dimmed several hours before economy. The staff at gate check-in was not helpful. My seating assignment was separated from my wife. I was told they could not move me. I was originally set to be seated next to a young mother and baby. I switched with her husband and another passenger to be seated next to my wife. Why do I need to arrange a seating assignment that should have been obvious? Plus they did not credit me with my mileage. Thanks, never again."
Cons: "The 2 flights were delayed, I went to my work late Both bags were broken"
Cons: "Cabin crew in business class were not especially friendly and was really lazy during the welcome drink service. They did not even ask each passenger and greeted them to see if they want anything. Instead, they just held the tray of welcome drink and walked around the cabin once, then poured all the unconsumed welcome drinks into the bathroom. Service after take off was abysmal as well. No smile, no addressing passenger by name, all the service was done in a rush and a totally weird manner. The food is not very much to my liking since it heavily consisted of cheese, and there is literally no choice for you to get away with that. Having a traditional Turkish menu is great at one hand, but in this case it was a huge no-no."
Cons: "The gate from Boston to Cairo in Istanbul is too far away. My plane left Boston one hour late so I had only about 50 mn to run from gate 200 to gate 712. Also in Boston the called all the family with children from business AND from economy to board first the we the Business we started to boarded after which was one hour after boarding time. That was REDICULOUS. Turkish Airline team was so slow and unprofessional unlike the team in Istanbul. But on the plane the service and food was excellent. Mervat Ali"
Pros: "Service. Very professional staff. Great food and drinks."
Cons: "There was a delay with boarding. Then there was a delay with leaving off, maybe an hr late and then we arrived there was a delay getting off. I did not get off the plane until 630 even though plane arrived at 549 exactly."
Pros: "the food is good - staff are generally friendly but not great with English if you have a problem"
Cons: "Why does Turkish Air boarding always have to be so chaotic - pushing and shoving, etc. Why cant TK control their business class space - people from economy always coming up for bathrooms when there are plenty in the back....."
Cons: "Flight was canceled. The disorganization and misinformation was unprecedented. I have been traveling for 30 years and tried almost all airlines, but the Turkish Airline office at Cairo Airport ranked the poorest I have ever seen. The disorganization was as if they do not know what to do. First they said the plane arrived late, then they said there was a bird hitting the engine. The excuses were so laughable beyond belief."

Cons: "lack of leg room"

Then when we deplaned, we were not told that we are not connected to a tube and would have to go down stairs to go to a bus which will bring us to the airport. The weather was blistering cold !

Pros: "Service and punctuality were spot on. No in-flight entertainment for our short flight from Timisoara to Bucharest, so bring a book or e-book. A good sandwich was provided, though.

They didn’t notify anyone that the CDC had changed it’s entry requirements and cost me my flight. I will never fly with them again.

Late departure, the plane was filthy since people were dropping lots of trash in the aisle. The bathrooms were almost unusable because people peed on the walls and floor, and left soaked bathroom paper on the floor and toilet. Most people ignored the crew and didn't wear masks, including people who were coughing.

It was so hot. No pillows were available and when asked for a blanket instead there were no blankets available as well

Friendly check in and smooth all the way

Terrible! They refused to let me board because of new travel restrictions, then tried to charge me an additional 3,000 eu to rebook.

Cons: "Poor entertainment, small seats, not enough food or drinks."

Inflight service was beverages , followed by hot meal ( 2 choices Chix or Beef ) hot beverages post meal followed by another beverage service pre landing."
Cons: "Because the Egyptians like it hot. The cabin temperature was really hot and the leather seats didn't help . It seemed like they did not have all the air pacts on .Very little airflow at the individual air vents. They prepare the cabin for landing way to early and you must have the window shades up which is painful with the hot sun beating on you through the window ( safety card is only so big)"

Cons: "i would rate boaring less than poor if applicable."
Pros: "Tha Flight was on time no delay The Crew are friendly in over all I have no problem"
Pros: "Excellent experience overall, I would definitely fly again with Egypt Air."
Cons: "Only small thing was, I have seen better as far as in flight entertainment. The touchscreen was not responsive and selection not great. I brought my own on a tablet so it wasn't a big deal for me."
Pros: "Upgraded to business class at the ticket counter for a very reasonable price- comfort and ease."
Pros: "Cheap!"
Cons: "The plane, supposed to take off at 6 pm crashed into another plane on the JFK tarmac around 7 pm. An hour later we were deplaned and then were uncoordinatedly brought to a shuttle... took 90 minutes to get transported to a hotel... that didn't have capacity for all... then another hotel... still no capacity for all... so I took an uber to another hotel on my own. It's 1 am before I get to my room and crash (no pun intended). Besides the incompetent organizational response in a crisis: The plane was not cleaned Dry -- no alcohol on board Food was meh. Looooooong 36 hours with Egyptair."

Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Good space. Reasonably modern plane. Could recharge my phone easily. Good selection of movies."
Cons: "The meal was served too late."
Pros: "We flew JFK to CAI roundtrip in coach. The whole process from check-in to landing was good overall, and the meals were also of good quality and complimentary as was baggage check-in (compared to US carriers who charge you for everything)."
Cons: "The bathroom got a little dirtier on the long haul flight compared to what I remember on other carriers, and phone support is only available during business hours which turned out to be ok, but could be a problem if you need to have a question answered last minute."
Pros: "They make us feel the tickets are discounted, and when you arrive to the airports for international flights which is normally allowed 2 luggage, they informed us we are allowed only one bag and charge for the second bage $125.00 also they told me that my carrying on is too big and charge me another $125.00 . I have had traveled with the same carry on many time but that's the new way of EGYPTAIR scams. Will not travel with them anymore..... They're the worst service, you will only see the cabin crew during the meal time , with almost 12 hrs flight you will see the crew only twice !!!!! The worst experience we ever have"
Pros: "I did not board the flight to Chicago reservation was wrong (operated by Egypt air ) both airlines denied me I bought another ticket from Lufthansa for$660. I spent two days in hotels. I arrived Chicago Monday noon. I missed two days of work. Please I need refund for my money $837 My name :Mahmoud Helal 15705 brassie court #2s Orland park Il 60462"
Pros: "This was a return flight from Cairo to Washington. I called the Cairo office multiple times to add a pet to my ticket. I couldn't check in online and when I called to ask they said that's because I'm making changes (pet) that's why I can't do it and I should do it at airport.. I'm Cairo airport the check point is as soon as you get thru the main door.. Waited in line for check in only to find that all 4 tickets (me and 3 kids) were cancelled and that we had to go outside again to the reservation office (had to go thru check point again) to reissue the tickets. They didn't even appologize for their mistake and they blamed the travel agency.. Very unprofessional and irresponsible people."
Pros: "Comfortable"
Cons: "After buying stuff at the airport we were not allowed to take it on the plane as there was additional security just before boarding. I had to throw away water and Pepsi cans. I thought this was ridiculous"

Crew never smile to us,

Pros: "The crew was nice and courteous. The flight went smoothly. The bathrooms were easily accessible."
Cons: "They barely offered water on the 11-12 hour flights. The crew was not around other than to hand out meals during the first and last few hours."
Cons: "That if passengers with a original departure of erbil will be blocked for their final log that kayak or royal jordanian dont advertise the flight"
Pros: "ThAt i left erbil"
Pros: "Great flight, on time, wonderful food and friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "Everything was perfect!"
Pros: "Food was wonderful. Seats in Crown class were very comfortable."
Cons: "The attendants only came around 2 times to offer drinks/water on a 12 hour flight. They only offered tea/coffee once. It was not offered after the main meal even. The attendants need to come around with water every few hours on such a long flight."
Pros: "The seat was great!"
Pros: "Amman airport and staff at ohare airport"
Cons: "Amount of food crew on the plane"
Pros: "Great crew, very comfortable plane. Everything was on time."
Cons: "The vegetarian option was not vegetarian as it contained fish. O'Hare was under construction and signage from the domestic terminal to international terminal was poor."
Pros: "The flight was great. The crew was wonderful as we were traveling with a wheelchair. I will definitely fly Royal Jordanian again."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "This is the first trip on the Egyptian airline and the last trip and the reason delay."
Pros: "The flights were on time."
Cons: "Food could have been better. ."
Pros: "flight was fairly empty, so very comfortable seating as nearby seats were not occupied."
Cons: "everything was fine -- now the departure and connection to another flight was NOT NEARLY AS SMOOTH !!"
Cons: "my seat was broken"
Pros: "The flight was one time for departure and arrival"
Pros: "Everything was excellent. After reading some reviews I was a bit reluctant but every was great on board. Great crew with great food."
Pros: "Crew exceptionally nice"
Cons: "Can’t turn off the screen"
Pros: "Good seat comfortable"
Cons: "The headphone jack and charging port were stuffed with something"
Pros: "I upgraded my flight to business class and I enjoyed it."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "I thought the Crown Lounge in Amman (RJ's hub) was shockingly poor."
Pros: "Delay one hour without announcement"
Cons: "Short flight, comfortable seat"
Cons: "Worse Flight ever seen . they charge me $210 for my handbag when I'm stop in Jordan Air port for connection to fly to US right before the airplane door . they told me if I don't pay they will cancel my ticket ."
Pros: "Non stop service."
Cons: "Poor service. Rude and unprofessional staff. Not enough food or beverage service."
Pros: "Nothing to like on this trip"
Cons: "The trip was scheduled to depart at 18:30. Arrived Airport around 16:30 to be shocked that the flight was delayed to 01:50 next day (i.e. seven and half hours). The ground staff advised that the flight was rescheduled to the new timing two days before. RJ ground staff claims that they informed all travel agents of the new timing. I verified with my company and the travel agent and they advised that RJ did not contact them at all. The irony is that I am an RJ Royal Plus Gold Frequent flyer member and RJ has all my contacts details and send me emails and messages all the time, but they fail to alert me at such critical and urgent situation. Most annoying that the ground staff did not even apologize for me and the other passengers specially the European old man in a wheelchair. Instead of arriving Amman at a civilized 19:30 we arrived the nest day at 04:00 next morning. Big blunder Royal Jordanian."
Cons: "The airline canceled my return flight without notice because I did not board an earlier connecting flight."
Pros: "Okall"
Cons: "All"
Pros: "There was more leg room than I'm used to and I got to watch Lego Batman"
Cons: "Seats were declined during take off and landing. Kids were running around everywhere, one even jumping into my leg, and one, get this, was running around as we were landing. At no point did anyone say "hey, be a parent and keep your kids in check." The staff seemed kind of lazy and annoyed Just generally a mess of inconsiderate people and the crew not doing their job."
Pros: "Staff and service was exelent"
Cons: "Timing Even though the was rescheduled we flew one hour late. Shuttles from the gate to the airplane The airplane was bowred from yan airline and wasn't Jordanian"
Cons: "Flight was late."
Pros: "It is a great company by thier stuff"
Pros: "Very New Airplane, very pleasant flight attendants , the food is great and we departure on time. Therefore, I have a amazing flight. Thank you Royal Jordanian"
Cons: "Everything was owesome"
Cons: "The toilet."
Pros: "High price and no entertainment"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Terrible ground staff. Constant change in flight schedules. No support on codeshares. No on ground help for canceled flights. No ability to print all the boarding passes. terrible connection options. Will avoid flying them ever again if possible."
Pros: "I realy liked the airport where there are a lot of restorants and caffe and great duty free shops. The lounge is great and its free for master card and american express holder"
Pros: "Flight itself was great ... attentive service, nice airplane, food and beverages even when it's a short flight"
Cons: "Check-in in the Cairo airport: different lines led to large differences in processing time ... our line also processed business class which led to us taking over one hour for check-in (basically being the last one) and having to run through security even when we arrived rather early. No initiative by the check-in attendants to balance between the lines. When they opened two more counters to process check-in they only processed the 'fast' line. Pro tip: avoid the (economy) check-in line next to the business counter. This probably led to the second problem ... they gave us separate seats when traveling with a young child."
Pros: "Very professional crew"
Cons: "Boarding and departure always very early. No audio-video"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and attentive, food was good, seats are comfortable - great flight!"
Cons: "There are not enough bathrooms on the large plane so there often were 5 people in line"
Cons: "Airline cancelled my Thanksgiving NYC to Cairo flight 2 weeks prior, leaving to me to scramble to find another flight and paying an additional $300+ on another airline. On top of it, phone support staff I talked with were not the least helpful, empathetic or friendly. I was jerked around about receiving a full refund even though it was the airline that cancelled, and finally had to dispute the purchase with my credit card company. They've lost my business forever."
Pros: "good service with a friendly crew. clean and comfortable."
Cons: "the food is not good at all (i had the vegetarian meal). the bread roll had mold on it. I would suggest boarding according to seats. when boarding all together you get stuck in line before and inside the plane itself."
Pros: "It was on time."
Cons: "The plan was really old. It had ashtrays."
Pros: "Lots of movies or tv shows to choose from in entertainment system. There were only 20 people on my flight, so lots of room to spread out."
Cons: "Please don't delay on boarding"
Pros: "Service, on time"
Cons: "Not much to complain about"
Pros: "On time, easy flight, process was predictable from start to finish."
Cons: "Waiting area for this flight is more like a hangar than a proper airline terminal - dirty carpet, florescent lights, loud. It's in stark contrast to the rest of the Amman airport which is quite comfortable and sleek."
Pros: "Most of the attendants where very helpful."
Cons: "We were 5 family members scattered throughout the plane. The attendants tried very little to help us get seats close to each other."
Pros: "Every thing"
