Pros: "There was a lot to choose entertainment wise."
Cons: "We had a child behind us who would not stop screaming and playing with the tray table. One of the crew members gave me a hard time for having my purse out for 1 minute while I was taking my prenatal vitamin even though we were sitting on the runway for over an hour at this point and the man in front of me had his chair fully reclined so I wasn't able to get to it under my seat.. Even though as she said, we were about to take off, but she didn't say anything to the man in front of me. This was my second time flying with them and the first experience was much better."

Cons: "Nothing arrived on time even though it departed late"

Pros: "That was good every thing, thank you."
Cons: "Nathing wrong."

Pros: "I like everything regarding the airline."
Cons: "The airport was attacked by a terrorist and hour after I left to Skopje. I know the airline has nothing to do with it but they should pressure the airport to have more safety for the passengers or find an airport in another country that is safer like Macedonia or Bulgary. Just as a temporary thing while things become safer in Turkey. In other words, only stop in Turkey for people who is flying to that country. Connecting flights should stop somewhere else."

Cons: "More legroom would be nice. Boarding was a bit delayed for no visible reason."

Pros: "Thats awesome"
Cons: "All personel it was good."

Cons: "Terible transit info. No information / custmoer service help at all in Istambul. Rude and unwilling to help airport employees! Gate changet without notice/ almost lost transit flight.. Turkis airline crew did not come by during flight until breakfast. Sooo thirsty...."

Pros: "The service, food, and in flight entertainment were great. The leg room in coach was on par with other major carriers that I have flown transatlantic. The layover in Istanbul was pleasant (go to Staarbucks for free wifi). And I saved $500 over the price of other flights. I'd definitely take Turkish Airlines again, and maybe even arrange for a longer layover to be able to see Istanbul."

Pros: "First of all, the food is fantastic is you are not a meat and potatos (or big mac) kind of person. My original flight left late due to a hold up in security in Chicago. Turkish Air was very responsive and easy to work with when I missed my connector in Istanbul. Friendly crew. Clean jet. Will definitely use them agian."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The seat was hard for a long trip"

Pros: "I have traveled a lot during my life. The flight crew on this flight was the best I have ever seen."

Pros: "The food, the crew, the beverages, the entertainment and the level of cleanliness were all excellent. On time departure on both segments."

Pros: "Everything! Voted best airlines in Europe for a reason!"
Cons: "Nothing! Everything was great"

Pros: "Nothing whatsoever."
Cons: "Worst customer expireince ever. I was making a short trip to visit my very sick mother. Turkish Airline changed my connection time without notifying me such that I had 5 min left for my cooection in stambul. They gave me no other option and blamed this on Kayak and kayak blamed it on the Airline leaving me with no options. I had to stay in Birlin at my own expense. Complaint filed with Turkish airline resulted in nothing. I made several calls for update and only repose I got was we will send an email to the complaint dept. and you will here in 24 hours. This has been going on for over 5 days with no contect, update or resolution. Once back in the US, I plane to file a formal complaint with FAA and more. DO NOT take this airline. They are worst airline I have ever used and will never use it again."

Pros: "I liked everything, from check in to the end of my trip!"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike!"

Pros: "I was very pleased with the overall service and comfort on my flight. Boarding went smoothly, and crew were friendly and helpful. Cabin service included Turkish delight, hot towel, an amenities bag, hot dinner, hot breakfast, and snacks available thought the flight in the galley. Entertainment was on demand and included a wide selection. Seats were comfortable with reasonable distance between rows for coach (better than on many U.S. carriers). They have ample restrooms and they are split throughout the coach cabin, which made lines for the restroom almost nonexistent. Restroom amenities include hand lotion and refreshing spray - very nice."

Cons: "Coach seats provide minimal leg room, and even less when seats are reclined."

Pros: "The service was very respectful and friendly."
Cons: "My volume didn't work at the seat I was sitting at"

Cons: "It was more cramped than other long haul flights, and the temperature changed from hot to cold throughout the flight with no working air"

Pros: "Friendly crew and clean aircraft."
Cons: "I was traveling with two family members with wheelchairs and gate transfer at IST was a nightmare. It was very slow, but finally we were at the right gate. Handicapped access must be improved at the IST airport."

Cons: "My seat did not recline and was broken. I was not happy about this as it was a 10 hour flight, and could not get comfortable"

Pros: "Everything went very well. The food was fantastic. Just too warm on the plane."

Pros: "Wonderful flight with spacious seats."

Pros: "When it's on time, this is a convenient flight to Addis."
Cons: "All information was incorrect. Passengers were told to go to gate very early and then were uninformed about late departure. We stood in a line for more than an hour because of this incorrect information. Additionally, the passengers were forced to stand in cold, windy rain because bus shuttle service and boarding was inefficient. Business class ticket holders were afforded no advantage while checking in either."

Pros: "Not a lot of options as far as the entertainment was concerned. The food was really good and the staff really courteous. However the seats were very uncomfortable."
Cons: "No leg space Not a lot of TV shows"

Pros: "Literally everything else. I was actually unsure if i had gotten bumped up to business class or the standards they have for seating, food, and everything was just really high"
Cons: "When I arrived at my final destination, Barcelona. Turkish did not have my luggage. I was convinced that they had lost it or somebody stole it. A day later they texted me and told me that they had my luggage and delivered it. I would have loved to gotten it without delay but I did get my luggage back so that's super nice!"

Pros: "Comfortable seats, nice crew...i forgot to reserve my vegetariano meal, but the crew provided for me.."

Pros: "Everything was amazing. The crew was great! The customer service was even better!"
Cons: "I was tired and fell asleep instead of watching more movies :)"

Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "Their time."

Pros: "Crew and hospitality"
Cons: "Wifi"

Pros: "Check-in was easy and smooth."
Cons: "Agents at check-in desk took longer time to process passengers, even though some desks had two people helping. The web check-in line moved slower than the line with passengers who had not done online check-in. When I booked my flight via kayak, I was not given an option to select seats (this was new) . I was able to indicate my seat preference but there was no followup. When I checked in online 24 hours before my flight, the only option for seats was in the middle, which I did not want, although I I knew the flight would not be full. I was able to change seats when I checked in with the agent in the airport ."

Pros: "have good lounge seats"

Pros: "I got 2 seats to myself, which was great"

Pros: "Very well organized and efficient. Very friendly staff. Great service."
Cons: "I paid for internet which constantly disconnected. Waste of money."

Pros: "Legroom Entertainment Airport onboarding exp"
Cons: "- horrible crew, many crew members were just rude to many passengers. Often rolling their eye and making overt gestures to passenger questions - one crew member just threw the food tray down and it all spilled over another passenger - they also struggle with english and so is hard understanding both ways - abslote the worst food selection and quality in my experience. Better pack your own food from home"

Pros: "Very good vegetarian option, the crew dealt with a difficult patron quite well."
Cons: "Since we boarded so early and the process was long, I was lulled into a false happiness that I had a row to myself that ended up being filled at the last second before the doors closed."

Pros: "Every thing is good inspite of food"
Cons: "Cheep quality of food"

Cons: "Food not very good. Service used to be better in the past"

Pros: "Plane is too old needs to be updated and good was below average. It used to be much better than that"

Pros: "Didn’t like anything. Only thing decent was the boarding."
Cons: "Crew members did not care about anything, unorganized. actually tripped and fell into the aisle hit my shoulder on the arm rest of another passenger’s seat because of a crew members luggage was in the middle of the aisle and it was dark. Food was terrible. The in flight entertainment was lacking entertainment. Crew members told us we needed to hold our carry on’s, on our lap then to store it under the seat because other people have bigger bags. Even though I got to the seat first and was trying to get settled in. Crew members were eating and on their cellphones in the back the majority of the time. It was hard to get a cup of water. Flew from Chicago O’hare to Abu Dhabi."

Pros: "Free movies and polite hostesses and service"
Cons: "Free internet"

Pros: "1) the flight was not full which was a big plus 2) the universal charging at the seat, I didn't need a converter."
Cons: "1) The sinks in 4 bathrooms were broken. People were still using the bathrooms although there was no sink. So people were not washing their hands which is unsanitary. 2) the food was not very good, nor the timing of it. Also sandwiches in plastic wrapping were distributed during sleeping hours and that was very disruptive. 3) the plane was older. 4) the flight was very expensive so I expected 5 star features and comfort, but it was only a 3 star for me."

Pros: "On time, entertainment, friendly crew"
Cons: "Seat comfort was HORRIBLE on 777. Next leg on A320 was tons better."

Pros: "Etihad transfer bus to Dubai from Abu Dhabi is free, super convenient, and a great experience!"

Cons: "My son's tv monitor didn't work"

Cons: "When there is a connecting flight from Domestic to international, Domestic is letting us in without any restrictions on Cabin luggage but in middle of journey in Chicago they have really troubled all the passengers, mainly they haven't checked the baggage's untill we have boarded the flight though everyone is there before 2 hrs of the and i personally asked they if my bags needs any new tags but just before they pulled everyone from the line and screwed us. which is really bad."

Pros: "Actually there was nothing to like except for the ground crew and the flight took off on time"
Cons: "Everything was horrible. The seats are uncomfortable compared to qatar airways, lufthansa, kuwait airways. The food was amazingly horrible. The entertainment device was out of date."

Pros: "The food was great."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats for too long a flight. Boarding took forever."

Pros: "We boarded etihad for the first time and the experience was not good at all. Have two major complaints. The boarding area was very strict with the carry on laggage items size. My wife and I have the carry on bags, with which we boarded multiple domestic and international flights and never got a complaint from any carrier, but to my surprise, etihad staff mentioned that my bang is over sized in length and width and I need to check in. And second complaint is on Food. We selected Hindu meal, and the food was not good in taste and the options as well. We felt Air India, Qatar, emirates, Cathe Pacefic etc were better comparatively than Etihad. Staff were all good and supportive all the time."
Cons: "Food Boarding"

Pros: "Food, In flight entertainment"
Cons: "Etihad has the most ridiculous carry on baggage policy. They have this cage within which your carry on should fit in. If it does not then you have to pay $320 to check in the bag which I was forced to pay. Never seen any airline doing such a shitty thing and overcharging. Also, I think they turned the AC off during the flight and I was fanning myself for the entire 14 hour duration of the trip. WTF??"

Pros: "Amenities package with toothpaste and brush."

Pros: "Nothing was good"
Cons: "Air hostess were very rude. Her name is Iliana , none of them have name tags on. I guess that will he the first thing any passengers would expect. Food was not served as per the menu. They gave away whay ever they wish. To ask for water we had to request 4-5 times. The air hostess Iliana was bumping constanly into us, and does not even have courtesy of apologising. Because of her I could not even sleep for a second in the plane. Iliana is very racist. When multi cultural people are around, it a common sense that we have to talk in a language which is understandable by every one. She was speaking in the local language, and messing around with the fellow passengers for a small issue. She is definitely not fit as an air hostess, if she is there as a racist. there was another air hostess who as shouting at us to book business class if we need to order individually. A kid beside me was asking for an ice cream if we had a chance of purchasing it, like we do in domestic airlines. When I was requesting for the ice cream, she mentioned it thrice to book a ticket in business class. Rude absolutely very very rudeeeee. Untolerable service.....worst really worst service. There was no blanket and ear plugs kept on my seat, I request iliana thrice for blanket and ear plugs, she was like i will give you after I serve everyone, but I never had one through out my journey. This is how Eithad has trained their air hostess to handle passengers. seriously I will never ever choose eithad."

Pros: "Ok"

Pros: "The plane was specious but the crew needs to improve their service ."
Cons: "___"

Pros: "I like the Islamic programs, nice food, nice pillow"

Pros: "Very professional but efficient."

Pros: "Loved the cabin crew, they were friendly, helpful and attentive despite a very long journey from Chicago to Islamabad."
Cons: "One piece of luggage was is banged up that there is a large dent and the handle no longer closes...unfortunately one of the best peices of luggage. Limited staff for such a filled flight, despite their best efforts service suffered. Need a seperate section for families with children. Face mask might be offered to passangers who coughed much of the journey causing concern about sharing germs in air that is already still. Food and toilet areas were smelly towards end of flight."

Cons: "The check in agent missed to give me a tag for my hand luggage When ground crew at the gate didn't see the tag they placed it in a cage and a scale it was underweight & within dimensions, the wheel however was sticking out of the cage and for that it was $300 charge!! Let alone the humiliation.. It was pay in 5 mins or you will be booted off... I swear I found another family almost crying as they coming from a connecting flight didn't go through the check in desk and paid $1200 I have been using same handbag on airlines including etihad for 5 years without any problems ... Go figure"

Pros: "Friendly staff, legroom was OK, American's gates at ORD were fairly clean."
Cons: "Great big stain on the carpet around the end of the gates looked pretty bad."

Pros: "The food was ok."
Cons: "The crew at O'hare Airport had terrible customer service.. The boarding crew made everyone buy new carry-on bags as their current bags were apparently 'too tall' to fit, even though most of the passengers there had arrived from domestic flights without having any issue with their carry-on baggage. They said that either pay $300 to check-in your bag, or buy a new bag. Once everyone had bought new bags ($100 minimum) and ditched their old bags (created a huge pile in the corner of the boarding area), they didn't bother to check the new bags to see if they were now compliant... Never flying with Etihad!"

Cons: "Gate manager "Nadia" very rude and unprofessional in dealing with boarding passengers."

Pros: "All other service were good."

Pros: "Leg room!!!!"

Cons: "Food was bad. Seats were not comfortable especially for such a long flight"

Cons: "It seems Etihad hired a lot of beauties without the brain. The crew on this flight knew nothing about customer service. I had my face mask on displaying the side that states "please wake me up for meals" and of course I was not. Hours later, I woke up starving and had to go to back of the cabin to pick up a food tray since no one bothered to answer the call light. After finishing my meal, I pushed the call button 5x and no one came to collect the tray. I waved at an attendant 2x and she replied, "I'll pick it up on my way back" but she never came back. 3 HOURS LATER!!! My food tray full of waste was still sitting in front of me. At that point, the gentleman sitting in the aisle seat woke up, saw the tray still in front and he got very upset. He stopped a random attendant walking down the aisle and requested tray must picked right now! The attendant then apologize and was shocked herself that the tray sat on my table for 3 HOURS! In addition to this, the seats in the economy class were so tightly compacted and uncomfortable for a 13 hours flight. One could barely move."

Pros: "When one country allows the same size of lagguage one way .The other way down the other country doesn't allow in the last moment. They do not understand how inconvenient it would be for the travelers to adjust the lagguage ."
Cons: "It was difficult to leave planned lagguage in dust bin."

Cons: "A relief to travel thru American airlines after being with etihad. Great service!"

Cons: "Just had issues with bathrooms not being clean. Ran out of soap in 2 bathrooms"

Pros: "Great food options. Super comfy fully reclining to bed seats. Very attentive flight crew."
Cons: "It's minor, but more up to date movies."

Pros: "Crew members"
Cons: "More comforting seats!"

Pros: "crew was ok. seats were very tight. climate was hot inside the plane for the whole trip. no entertainment the screens were not working. poor food. and finally we had to go in a bus not a direct gate.. very bad experiance"
Cons: "everything!"

Cons: "I think the food that I had it is not for human"

Cons: "The pilot scared us off, we had a very rough landing! I will never usa royal jordanian again"

Pros: "Greatest crew ever."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "The flight schedule was better than any other carrier. The flight crew was very helpful."
Cons: "The space between rows really seemed much narrower than a year ago."

Pros: "Seats were really good and the crew hospitality was awesome"

Pros: "Timing"
Cons: "Everything"

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: "Only direct flight available to amman"
Cons: "Cleaning it stinks bad"

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

Cons: "They won’t reimburse us for our flight that they canceled.. HORRIBLE and will never fly with them again."

Pros: "Clean plane"
Cons: "Movie choices and breakfast (only carbs is a tough way to start a trip when traveling internationally)"

Pros: "Seat on the 787 is the best economy seat ever"
Cons: "Movie options more limited than other airlines. Crew were certainly OK - a bit abrupt, but I really don’t need someone fawning over me to be satisfied."

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: "Entertainment (i couldn't watch anything because my screen wasn't working"

Pros: "Flight was on time and the handling of the plane by the pilots was good"
Cons: "While the plane was a Dreamliner, the quality of the seats, and the space in the seats didn't fit the the usual Dreamliner quality. The toilet facilities were terrible ... urine on the floors that made them sticky and horrifically stinky. Only two food service events during the 13 hours ... the first was OK, but the second was really sub par (a sandwich and a granola bar only)/.The available entertainment choices of movies were really lacking compared to other airlines. My first seat assignment had to be changed, because the man set to be sitting next to me began murmuring and cursing when he found out that I was to be next to him. My second seat assignment had me sitting in front of a man, who angrily refused to let me recline my seat at all, because it would crowd his leg space. Therefore I had to sit perfectly straight for all 13 hours of the flight. There were no other aisle seats for me to switch to. Most airlines offer eye shades and earplugs for the long haul flights. Not this one. Both were needed on this rather noise, chaotic flight. I guess you get what you pay for ... the cheap fare is not worth it. I don't intend to fly this airline again."

Cons: "We arrived at thé Gate 5mn later Thé Crew was Stellung our Senats in Front of US And they just told us It is too late !!! Very Bad impression of this Company As i was with my too childrens 15 and 11 years old... Thanks for your réponse Terry"

Cons: "Seating too tight and close three people sit there arm on each other because no room similarly distance between row is also close food tray falls over"

Cons: "crew was RUDE!!"

Pros: "Comfortable airplane , good food, nice staff"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Bag did t arrive no one to talk to horrible service no home delivery I have to keep going back to airport and talk to stupid young guys who talk too much and do nothing"

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: "The plane was new and spacious."
Cons: "Crew served old and cold coffee."

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."

Pros: "Nothing."
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."

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."

Pros: "Seats were bigger than normal flights"
Cons: "There was no entertainment at all. Food could've been better."

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!"

Pros: "not a single thing"
Cons: "flight attendants specially sara super rude, bully, obnoxious no entertainment system, was on but no programs were available, this is not a cheap flight, as a matter of fact the most expensive for that schedule and rout food was horrible plane was packed and no leg room will never fly RJ ever again"

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: "Fast check in, timely take off & arrival Excellent and friendly service"
Cons: "NA"

Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "Nothing"

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: "The food!! The flight was in time and also the flight attendant were so available and caring"

Cons: "Food must be better"

Cons: "Customer service need more improvement they should know how to handle things . Just be courteous is. More than enough"

Cons: "Airport Addis Ababa is chaos."

Pros: "crew good. seat base was not soft nor comfortable."
Cons: "have crew offer drinks more often throughout the flight. every passenger gets dehydrated and needs more drinks. I had to go to the back and get drinks myself."

Pros: "The airline was quick to give vouchers for food and hotel when flight was delayed by 5 hours. They were also efficient in rebooking missed connecting flight."
Cons: "On top of a five hour delay that got me to my arrival point 14 hours behind schedule, my two checked bags were also lost and have not been found up to two days later. The food was like being on a Delta flight, and the entertainment screens in my entire row would not work, nor did many others."

Pros: "Excellent seat"

Cons: "There is no phone charging or entertainment. Also couldn't bring on carry-on sized bags with wheels and were forced to check them."

Pros: "Crew was super nice. The woman at check-in gave us bulkhead seats so my friend and I could sit together. With this, we were able to board first to get plenty of space in the overhead bins. Food and flight entertainment were free and definitely better than average."

Pros: "The crew was amazing. The crew is an asset to the airline"
Cons: "Boarding is chaotic."

Cons: "Language barriers are always hard, i sat next to someone who didn’t speak English well, one of the flight crew sounded irritated instead of understanding."

Pros: "Crew was very nice, very helpful"
Cons: "3 hour delay in flight from Chicago to Ethiopia due to ‘mechanical issues’ made me miss my connection. I was put up in a hotel, but woke up in the middle of the night to roaches all over the place. Not the best experience"

Pros: "Crew was friendly. Food somewhat better than prior leg but far from business class standard."
Cons: "Plane fittings coming apart; dirty seats; no personal screens - they use an overhead CRT! Didn’t know such old panes were still being used by Ethiopian. While friendly, crew could be more attentive to travelers needs - eg refills, water etc."

Pros: "I liked they’re fury free in flight shopping, very nice affordable pieces of jewelry and perfumes"
Cons: "They weighed my carryon! I haven’t seen any other airline do that before. I flew with them 3 times this year, 13 hour each flight and the entertainment was not the best. They didn’t have enough current movies or tv shows. The food was bland. Coffee cups were plastic and it burnt my finger."

Pros: "Loved the meals and the leg room"
Cons: "The entertainment could have been better but overall was not too bad"

Cons: "Addis Airport is a NIGHTMARE!!! It took two hours to check in and the lines were insane. It was absolute chaos, people pushing and airport staff did little to manage it. We almost missed our flight because the lines and process was so disorganized. The plane ride - the plane was old. My seat was so old, the cushion was worn down to the point of feeling like a bucket seat. This was really bad..."

Pros: "luggage take time to receive , over 1 h"
Cons: "luggage tale long time to receive"

Pros: "I like the Direct route"
Cons: "Long wait time at checkin Only certain employees accepted money for extra baggage fees Long time boarding Most staff were friendly An employee on board with short hair was not nice and her hair wasn’t professional Paid $160 for the extra bag, but it was lost It is still lost!"

Pros: "Everything was great."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Ethiopian Airlines it great."
Cons: "Nothing"

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: "2 separate incidents. One, a fight between passengers at ththe check in desk that spilled over before staff could resolve incident. Then at security, after immigration, no cues. Minimal staff overseeing the process. No organization. Early"

Pros: "Everything was on time, high quality, and enjoyable"
Cons: "There was a fight on the llane but it was because a passenger with mental issues was provoked by a couple so ahe beat up the wife. This was not caused by ET and crew at all, but they stopped it."

Pros: "Good service in the plane"
Cons: "In Lomé ground crew are horrible and asking for bribes including the supervisor."

Cons: "They didn’t announce when boarding started/what zones were to go."

Pros: "The flight crew was nice. We received a hot lunch even though it was a short flight which was nice."
Cons: "Boarding was interesting. It should have been an easy boarding as it is a small regional airport. Instead it seemed they went out of their way to make it as confusing as possible. Instead of going through security over here lets have you wrap around the hallway to just have to come back to where you were before?"

Pros: "Staff very friendly"
Cons: "Bathroom cleanliness"

Pros: "Direct flight for a good price and great service"

Pros: "Spacious seats, attentive flight attendants"
Cons: "Bathrooms were messy and ran out of soap in one."

Pros: "I was not allowed on the flight because I did not receive a confirmation email from Ireland airport even though I was never told I needed this."
Cons: "Everything."

Pros: "Comfortable, excellent service"
Cons: "Nothing - everything was fine."

Cons: "Little turbulence but nothing serious"

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: "I like the entertainment,but the quality is not quite good in Amharic part."
Cons: "The food is very bad."

Pros: "nice movie but that's all"
Cons: "chair and light broken. tasteless food. small screens"

Cons: "everything about it, from the random cancellation of my flight, to missing my connection, and their inability to get me another flight, spending over 24 hours in travel for a mere 6 hour flight. No customer service, would never recommend Ethiopian Airlines to anyone."

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: "Poor service, not organized, dirty aircraft"

Pros: "Great service"

Pros: "Apt to time"
Cons: "I was very cold cos i forgot my jacket. I requested for blanket from different attendants but they never gave me one. They would respond ok but never got back to me. One told me they were looking for blankets and will get me one when found. They were all so busy with food matters. To my utmost surprise after several hours when they were done with food matters blankets began floating around in their numbers. I was really really sad"

Pros: "The guy I was sitting next to."

Cons: "Hi, I have asked 3 members of the crew to get me a glass of water from the time I boarded the flight. It took 45 minutes for them to hand me a glass of water. I have to wait till they all got settled. Only when them to start the service they were able to give me some water. I was really thirsty otherwise, I wouldn't have to ask for three members. I think it's important that they respond more promptly and do a quick service considering the long flight we have."

Pros: "Tried to cancel charged anyway bad service"

Pros: "The service, the comfort, the team was brilliant."

Pros: "Again, excellent service. Funny stop on way to runway where we seemed to take on more fuel was a little concerning."
Cons: "Funny stop on way to runway where we seemed to take on more fuel was a little concerning."

Pros: "flight left on time otherwise nothing noteworthy outstanding to mention"
Cons: "- poor food (as usual) - no inflight entertainment (as usual) - no priority boarding"
