Pros: "The seats, staff and food were great!"
Cons: "I was traveling with a resin in a wheelchair and it was a little chaotic"

Pros: "Clean plane"
Cons: "Movie choices and breakfast (only carbs is a tough way to start a trip when traveling internationally)"
Pros: "The seat was comfortable, lots of leg room in the bulkhead area. I was able to sleep in spite of daytime travel because the crew kept the cabin low-lit. There were snacks and drinks available in the galley throughout the long flight."
Cons: "The flight attendants were not very friendly, just “did the job”. The overhead lighting was focused on passengers’ heads, not on the lap area/tray table area where it’s needed. The bathrooms weren’t maintained during the flight—out of toilet paper, poop & urine on the seats, overflowing trash bins."
Pros: "Service and food"
Cons: "Old plane"
Pros: "Seat on the 787 is the best economy seat ever"

Pros: "Crew was helpful"
Cons: "Flight delayed over 1 hour, plane change so my paid seat was no more, screen does not work"
Cons: "As a handicaped disabled not able to walk and should be using a wheel chair,as I know from my many previous travels with other companies like lufthanza, klm..etc, I used to be the first traveller to go to the air craft when loading it to take off and the last one who would be leaving it after landing. Even when going through the check and security points I used to go in a special route especially for the handicaped but going with all other normal travelers lines with such amount of time waiting and crowdness is completely inconvenient. what happened through the trip was quit different , going with the travelers or after when they are boarding the craft make it very hard and time consuming , Wish you take care of it, as it's a very important handicaped service. Thank you for taking the time to read my comment"
Cons: "Very courteous"
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "The chairs are way too small and very crowded. Not clean, food was bad, and really old movies was a very limited selection."
Cons: "crew was RUDE!!"
Pros: "Comfortable airplane , good food, nice staff"
Pros: "The flight the plane the staff on plane the food the entertainment"
Cons: "waiting lines to get into the gates and passport checks for departure. it was too long and mis-leading since the machines were not working eventually had to go to a manual check (not machine) and almost missed the flight. It's bad management of the Ben Gurion Airport."
Pros: "Easy boarding process, friendly staff. Newer plane (787 Dreamliner). The Crown lounge in Amman is gorgeous."
Cons: "Food was ok, the seats were narrow. Even though they laid flat, they were stiff and not as comfortable as Qatar, Etihad, or Emirates. I have had better experiences and sleep on the other carriers."
Pros: "I like the fact that I was a direct flight. Plus the flight attendants were very nice."
Cons: "What I don't like about it it was a long. Of time between they serve dinner and then there take of raptis when I was clearly going to be afternoon and you're landing at 3:45 in the afternoon there was nobody coming by with any type of snacks or drink offers in that time zone"
Pros: "I kept calling the airline and no one answered to change the dates because of a passport emergency and ended up missing the flight"
Cons: "No one answers in case of emergenciess"
Cons: "First, I'm not sure where the problem was - whether with AA or Royal Jordanian, but my luggage did not make it to Amman with me. In fact, there was a whole group of passengers traveling on American from different US cities, switching to RJ in Chicago, whose luggage did not come on the flight to Amman. My advice: be sure to pack enough for a couple of days in your carryon - and don't accept an offer to check your carryon to its final destination! The food was very mediocre, and not much for a flight of over 10 hours. And the movie options were limited, mostly older. The crew never came and offered water between meals - although I did discover we could go to the galley and get drinks. It would have been nice to have that option mentioned. The plane itself was nice, and seating slightly more roomy than other carriers."
Pros: "Very enjoyable trip and crew was very polite."
Cons: "The entire trip from the beginning was a hassle due to a terrible customer service. No help whatsoever."
Cons: "The service was rude and they couldn’t give us an explanation as to why we couldn’t ge tvoarding passes when we booked 3+ months ago."
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 ."
Cons: "The airline canceled my return flight without notice because I did not board an earlier connecting flight."
Pros: "The flight was overall great. I very much liked the price, the fact that I was allowed to take two big suitcases, and the sitting was overall ok space wise. The crew was kind and the food was OK. I am very likely to make reservations with this airline in the future!"
Cons: "I did not like the fact that there was no WiFi on the flight. I also did not like the fact that the selection of movies was quite limited and not very recent. Finally, I did not like the fact that there was very little service on the flight. I would have liked to see more beverages (hot and cold) offered throughout the flight, and the clearing of meals done more rapidly."
Cons: "Complex boarding Delay Did not inform us about a stop in canada even we book non stop flight and we surprise in last minuts on boarding that we have to get transit visa or we will not board"
Cons: "zero entertainment..the worst movies and music mix..not enough food"
Cons: "I asked for a window seat and I have platinum card. I was told to check at the counter. The counter lady said there is no window seat available and the whole row of three seats was empty! As soon as I entered the flight it had an urine like odor through out the flight. I travel a lot in this airline and this is the first flight that had that odor. I will fly again and if that continues I will consider changing the airline."
Pros: "I always prefer international travel because there is always better service, storage for luggage and of course: food! It’s the old standard of flying. Too bad it only happens across oceans. The experience of flying in a Dreamliner was pretty cool in coach, first class looked more like the dream. Quite a massive difference!"
Cons: "Not as customer service oriented as some other international airlines (Korean Air, Singapore Air, KLM) but they did the trick!"
Pros: "There was a lot more leg room than I'm used to, and the staff were very pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "The seats were a little narrow and maybe it's because of buying through kayak but I didn't have any options for food as a sanctimonious vegetarian. Movies a little old but they had Die Hard and Office Space so who cares, baby?"
Pros: "The entire experience was truly great! Crew is very professional, friendly, and accomodating! Very comfy plane, great food and a wide variety of entertainment!"
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "No one showed up at the gate desk until about 30 minutes prior to scheduled take off take. By then there was a line of people needing confirmation or adjustments done. Not everyone could be serviced. Missed opportunity."
Pros: "The entertainment selections were great."
Cons: "The seats were a bit uncomfortable and the food was horrible (pretty typical of most airlines though)."
Pros: "Very friendly flight attendants"
Pros: "I don't like anything about Royal Jordanian crew , management totaly an honest and corrupt people"
Pros: "I like that we were able to board quickly."
Cons: "I didn't enjoy the way the flight attendants were treating there guest."

Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "Once found someone in the airport to explain how to get to international flights from the Domestic side of the airport, it was good."
Pros: "Mr. Alkhatieb the head of crew offers a 2 hour crew seats to my mom"
Cons: "Extremly narrow seats , not comfortable at all .. RJ cew in check in desk was awful and the change our seat 3 times"
Pros: "Every thing on there the crevices was so good"
Cons: "Non .. all is good"
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."
