Pros: "Easy boarding, entertainment"
Cons: "Crew was not very friendly on bot departure and return flights. Will make me reconsider Air France in the future."
Cons: "J’ai eu à payer un bagage supplémentaire sur internet à 160 euros. Mon compte a été débité et à l’aéroport de Dakar les agents au comptoir me disent qu’ils ne retrouvaient pas le payement du troisième bagage. J’ai été obligé de repayer le bagage comptant à 190€"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 4+ hours"
Pros: "The cabin crew were amazing and the seats very comfortable, even in economy. I'm not a super comfortable flyer so I loved that the pilot would always warn when we were getting into turbulence. 2 thumbs up. I will fly Air France again"
Cons: "I'd appreciate a better selection of food and drinks, even if I have to pay for the drinks."
Pros: "Crew was attentive. Timings were spot on."
Cons: "Virtually no information at boarding which made everybody just make a huge line. Boarding they a bus, it was raining and we got wet."
Pros: "Great newer plane, great service!"
Pros: "The entertainment options were great."
Cons: "Seats are so cramped. I'm 5'3" and could use either arm rest because both people on either side spilled into my seat."
Cons: "Really hard to get boarding passes online"
Pros: "The crew was nice and the seat comfortable."
Cons: "Never got the pre-ordered wheelchair in Paris and only after long negotiations at JFK. Also, Delta lost my checked bag between JFK and DCA."
Pros: "crew was great, seats were comfortable"
Cons: "departure board listed flight as being boarded and gate closed hour before flight leading to confusion and standing in queue for over an hour, part of food was frozen and inedible, paid for upgraded seat which turned out to be by bathroom smells were as bad as you can imagine"
Pros: "Average crew. Average seat."
Cons: "They could have controlled screening babies better. They just let them scream....."
Cons: "The food was mediocre. Flying La Compagnie in the past was a much better food experience."
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: "The crew was very accommodating. I couldn’t have ask for anything better...pass on my praise to the flight crew of 0083"
Pros: "Good food and service"
Pros: "The staff were very helpful and professional. The air hostesses regularly checked if I was ok and showed concern when I wasn’t. They made what seemed a bad situation seem bearable."
Cons: "The food was not very nice and the option I wanted had run out. The entertainment was faulty and had to be reset several times. The comfort was below standard and needs to be improved."
Cons: "Missed the flight due to late landing from earlier connection"
Cons: "Not much legroom."

Cons: "Not enough leg room."

Cons: "Because of change in plane..bad choice of seat for long legs of husband...then late in Atlanta and very late into DC"
Pros: "Quiet! No noise-canceling earphones needed. Delicious food."
Cons: "Everything. The crew seemed to skip over me and my husband multiple times. So we sat there with garbage the whole flight. My entertainment was broken and they had no solution but giving me $30 to use at the duty free shop the same day as the flighty. I paid extra for premium seating in an exit row and that was their idea of fair compensation. The crew ran out of vegetarian food so I didn’t eat anything but cold stale bread. The crew was non-existent most of the flight."
Pros: "Nice staff, very professional and helpful."
Pros: "I like fly attendant who served us meal"
Cons: "I didn’t like that space between each seat is small"
Pros: "Very helpful cabin crew and did well to communicate in English to me. Flight was on time and landed ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Entertainment system had to be rebooted as it did not work Small screen handset was not working for the entire flight food selection was not as big as KLM or China Eastern Bathroom on board was smaller than KLM or China Eastern which meant changing into more comfortable clothing for the night flight"
Pros: "The airplane was modern, and the crew very good. Nice, service oriented and in general trying to make the flight experience as good as possible."
Cons: "The flight was very late. I lost my connection. My bag was lost and unable to recover it so far (after more than 24 hours). About to initiate the next leg of the trip with no clothes or any idea if my luggage will be recovered."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and the plane was clean and comfortable"
Cons: "Worse food I ever had on a flight ( a small bowl of lentils and some bread) Movie selection was poor, although not a big deal"
Cons: "I leave my jacket in the hanger when I get off the airplane I realized that they didn’t gave it to me. I inmeadiatly tey to go back but I couldn’t I went to the counter and they said that there was noting on the plane !"
Pros: "The stewardesses were extremely kind and helpful to me as I was travelling alone with my toddler. I really appreciated their help and kindness."
Pros: "Comfort, food and service are better than average."
Cons: "When stewardess opened overhead locker, something fell on my head."
Cons: "Its been a week. My trip has ended. I still do not have my bags. Terrible customer service."
Pros: "Punctual, great food in Premium Economy, friendly crew."
Cons: "Took over 75 minutes (after arrival) for baggage to arrive on the carousel. Boarding area did not have well-defined lanes for different groups."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and professional, fresh croissant and hot chocolate on my short flight. As many airlines charge now for any and all food items it was nice to again experience fast and efficient food and beverage service without the tedious hassle of ordering and paying. I’d gladly fly Air France again. First time, but likely not the last."
Cons: "Like all airlines , the seats could use a few more inches of space, even two would be nice."
Pros: "The seats are spacious. They give you great amenities such as a toothbrush, etc. The crew was very nice. The food was also superb for airplane food."
Cons: "The check in process was terrible at SFO. We all felt like cattle being herded on. It was such a mess. The seats are surprisingly uncomfortable in premium economy. The headrest is not conducive to sleeping."
Pros: "Personal treatment I have received as I was with a 7 months baby. An agent helps me to carry my hand luggages up to the plane entrance and to pass in priority"
Cons: "2 hours delayed..."
Cons: "Clean. Courtesy of staff on plane."
Pros: "All crew I interacted with was great, friendly, and helpful."
Cons: "Flight was late. Boarding very slow. Entertainment was ok by today's standards. Each seat had a display, but movie selection was not great. For a French airline I was looking forward to breakfast -- maybe some nice pastries or at least a decent croissant with jam. None such. It was disappointing. Meals were not impressive either, but the complimentary wine was good. I did not find the seats comfortable."
Pros: "Boarding was very efficient"
Cons: "Losing my luggage after checking it at the gate when volunteers were needed."
Pros: "Boarding sevece was very nice and helpful Thanks so much"
Pros: "tool me safe from one airport to another"
Cons: "wait time, food"
Pros: "Excellent choice of movies. Great service. Friendly crew."
Cons: "I requested a lacto-ovo vegetarian meal, which I received. However, it appears the meal was also vegan. Normally, that would be okay except one of the two standard meal choices was also vegetarian and seemed much better. Since I had selected lacto-ovo vegetarian, it seems I was not allowed to select the standard vegetarian option. Hard not to have cheese on an Air France flight - just saying :-)"
Pros: "It was as expected."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit tedious because we had to first board a bus to take us to the airplane."
I didn’t like that I had to pay for my checked in luggage as I was not told about this when I purchased my ticket
Entertainment system didn’t work.
Many of the check in kiosks in vancouver had issues with scanning documents like your passport etc. which led to a lot of time wasted trying to make scanning work. Had to go to three different kiosks before finding one that worked for checking in
The transfer in Toronto for my connection , was a close call. The custom lines were long . More time needed between flights for no issue for connecting flight.
Pros: "The aircraft"
Cons: "Baggage handling"
Pros: "Nothing good to say for this flights overall."
Cons: "Spent over two hours on the plane/tarmac waiting for take off. Air Canada sucks."
Pros: "The seating is well laid out and the service aboard the flight was excellent. Wonderful duck entree."
Pros: "I got to my destination safely, luggage came out guickly n intact."
Cons: "I have no complaints. I taught the flight was good."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Smelled like vomit when I sat in my seat and there was garabage on the floors. Staff was nice but plane was extremely small and untidy."
Pros: "Very happy with my trip"
Cons: "My lineup in USA entry line was ridiculous and I missed my boarding time because it was as hard to get the air Canada attendants attention so I ended up waiting 40 minutes anxious about missing my plane. Their kiosks weren’t working proper hence the longer line."
Cons: "7:05am Flight got cancelled and they saw fit to rebook us on a 20:30pm flight.. decided to reroute us to anotjer city in canada and down to a different airport in DC Lost my luggage from time i checked it it at 0500am yo time dflight was cancelled and rebooked at 0700. And to fike claim and travrl without jt. Worst experience ever."
Pros: "Airport security was great and the airport pane was clean with a great crew!"
Cons: "Didn’t depart on schedule and then had to wait in Calgary to depart as the gate wasn’t available"
Cons: "Air Canada is always late in my experience. I always end up waiting at the gate for the inbound flight which happens to be late. It is so annoyingly dishonest, considering that the flight is announced as on-time up until minutes before the departure time. When all along they know the incoming flight is late. After we boarded the plane at origin, we spent 15 minutes at the gate and quite a bit on the runway. When nearing the DCA, the plane took a complete detour went near Baltimore and then Annapolis and then flew back to near Gaithersburg as if it was intentionally wasting time on the air. Upon landing in DCA we had to wait 15 minutes on the taxiway waiting for the gate to clear. The (one hour long) flight that was scheduled to land at 10:20pm landed just before midnight. Air Canada is awful. This happens every time I fly with Air Canada and their conduct is just cheap and dishonest."
Pros: "Nice staff on board and in the airport. Left on time."
Cons: "Small plane not alot of storage space. Can carry small bags on board."
Pros: "Nothing - they don't communicate or care"
Cons: "That they didn't have staff at the gate even during boarding time & 3 hrs later showed up to tell us flight is cancelled. Lost our bags which never left the origins airport .. the list goes on & on about several rude or unprofessional manner in how they cancelled a flight with zero help before, during or after the fact."
Pros: "They afford a civil and enhanced trip on an Express flight. Something AA and other airlines consistently fail to do."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth, considering there were just over two hundred passengers to manage. The crew was excellent: responsive, courteous and proactive. Entertainment: Overall plenty of options though some were dated. Food: surprisingly good, and COMPLIMENTARY. Didn't have to pay extra."
Cons: "Coach is CRAMPED. And on a 14-hour flight, that's important.."
Cons: "The post office lost my passport and I was unable to go on this flight. Customer service was unwilling to provide a solution that did not cost thousands of dollars to rebook and see my family for Christmas."
Pros: "My flight to Toronto arrived late which meant there would be no way for me to catch my connecting flight to North Carolina. An Airline rep was already waiting for me out of the terminal, with tickets for a new flight the next morning, a ticket for one night at one of the airport hotels(dinner included) and meal vouchers for the airport. This would have never happened with any US based airline."
Pros: "The plane was clean and fairly comfortable."
Cons: "Our flight from Toronto to Washington DC was delayed for no apparent reason. We were not told of this delay until 45 minutes after boarding time was supposed to begin. Good communication would have helped with this issue."
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "The plane was old and looked like it was going to fall apart. My seat was torn and the back of the seat in front of me was broken. Not my favorite airline by far."
Cons: "There was only one snack option and I couldn't eat it because it contained gluten."
Pros: "Right on time. No problems boarding"
Cons: "No food/entertainment"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Announcement was made at the last minute. There wasn't enough space for carry-on luggage, mostly because the flight crew let people hog space leaving less for everybody else."
Pros: "Easy flight to DC."
Cons: "First time at Pearson Airport needed some help finding my way around the airport"
Pros: "Decent everywhere options, leg room, and seat comfort."
Cons: "Delays with no adequate explanation and very few updates. Boarding process was chaos."
Cons: "I was supposed to be home on a Sunday. That I didn't arrive until the follow Tuesday should tell you something. My adventure included: 2 cancelled flights, one drastically oversold flight, being given a hotel room without a working toilet, hours spent waiting at the airport for information from gate agents who never showed up, and being curtly told that, as a passenger who didn't arrive on a connecting flight, on my second night I would not be given a hotel room, but instead a mat to sleep on in the airport. I did finally get a hotel room—this time with a working toilet"
Pros: "Once I actually got on the rebooked flight, everything went great."
Cons: "I get it, weather happens, but airlines should have figured out by now how to make any issues that come from that as painless as possible. Air Canada did not have it together. There was little communication and coordination. People had to wait multiple times in ungodly long lines while agents spent way too much time with each customer. There was misinformation and lack of information given by agents and at times no one to help at all. When there's weather it should be all hands on deck until the effected customers get to where they need to be. Otherwise it's an aggravating and nearly intolerable experience. Commercial airlines have been around for 60+ years - figure it out already."
Cons: "They took our 2 carry on bags , claiming lack of cabin spaces . Only to turn around and lose them en rout to Florida ."
Pros: "The pilots were EXTREMELY polite, informing us through the intercom why everything is delayed. SUPER flight through the rain!!! FANTASTIC PILOTS!"
Cons: "We were Stuck INSIDE the plane for an hour. If there is a delay either offer a refreshments or let us go back inside the air port and get a refreshments. The crew were unprofessional, i travel enough and this crew was the worst I have seen. On top they offered No hot beverages. Upon my request of a simple cup Of coffee the flight attendant said, NO, ask if I wanted a coke. It is great that he is giving me an alternative but he can simply appogize that he has not made any coffee and be sincere about it. TERRIBLE service all together. We all in the plane have appointments that now we are late to, crew showed no concern."
Cons: "Delayed flight from Toronto to washington"
Cons: "The flight from Toronto to Washington DC was delayed for more than 3 hours and there was not even a drink offered for the inconvenience."
Pros: "Quick boarding. Great with children."
Cons: "Multiple confusing security processes at airport. Huge lines. Flight delayed twice."
Pros: "The flight crew were very efficient and pleasant."
Cons: "The entertainment was quite limited if you didn't download the Canada Air App before boarding. I got a bit of a shock when I sat down and found myself looking at the back of a seat. No entertainment for a transatlantic flight? Shocking. If you had an iPad you could log into their wifi and watch limited tv programs. Movies could only be viewed through their app. The seating was quite cramped too! I'm average height and foknd that the leg space was v limited!"
Pros: "The crew and their sincere attitude to be of help. Wonderful team of professionals."
Cons: "One hour delay, which was very tiring for someone who already had gone through the 9 hour flight torture from Athens. The Global Entry for US bound passengers procedure is very confusing. Maybe it would help if the steps were communicated on the US bound passengers before disembarking. First the passport process (easy) then there is this confusing process where we need to see our names in green on the screen, with some staff telling us to move on while others insist that we need to stay back and wait for our names to go green on screens that keep changing. Good idea and intentions to help clear bags, and can be improved. Overall the Montreal to DC flight (with the exception of the awful Montreal airport and the long delay) was excellent."
Cons: "They messed up my mobile checkin making me miss my flight and then had thenough nerve to try to make me pay a 80$ change fee to take the next flight that was 100$ cheaper than my original. Waiting for a refund! I had to take American Airlines home. I will never flying with them again!"
Cons: "plane left late , crew gave absolutely no updates. Crew gave no help in helping us make our international flight we boarded our international flight minutes before they closed doors and we were panicked and ran through terminal for which seemed like miles I will never use this airline again"
Cons: "Again flight delayed 4+ hours yet no email notifications whatsover"
Pros: "- Friendly and helpful crew - No turbulence - No major concerns"
Cons: "- Flight was delayed for over 20 minutes"
Pros: "One bag did not arrive."
Cons: "I arrived at the airport and attempted to check in at 11:17, 58 minutes before my flight was schedule to depart, having just rushed to the airport from my father's bedside in the hospital. I purchased a ticket on this flight because I absolutely needed to be back in New York City by 2:30 pm today - otherwise, I wouldn't have left. When I attempted to use the kiosk to check in, my booking reference number couldn't be found, despite repeated attempts. When I approached a customer service agent to check in manually, I was simply told that I could not - I was not offered any reason other than that I was "too late" and not offered any alternative. I asked to speak with a supervisor who attempted to clear me for check in seeing as I had no bags to check and have a Global Entry card, but was told by the agent that I spoke with that the flight was over booked and so there were now no longer any seats available. I asked to speak with the supervisor in person, and was told she was on her way, but 15 minutes later she was nowhere to be seen and time was ticking. While the first agent was completely unhelpful, and never offered to rebook me on another flight, another agent helped me by giving me a boarding pass for the next flight and told me she was putting me on standby for the flight I originally purchased the ticket for. I got to the gate in plenty of time to board my original flight, but was told that I wasn't on the standby list and there were simply no seats left on the flight - even though I purchased one which should have been held for me until 10 minutes before departure as is the policy for every other airline as far as I am aware. I am beyond frustrated that due to Air Canada's overbooking the airline used the excuse that I arrived 58 minutes before my flight to give the ticket I purchased away to someone else, with no consideration for me as a customer. The extremely poor customer service I received only added insult to injury. I am completely stumped as to how Air Canada could possibly be the only airline in North America with a 4 star rating when I have consistently experienced overbooking, flight cancellations, and abysmal customer service, including 30 minute wait times to speak to an agent, an inability to check in online for international travel, topped off by poor in flight service, when traveling Air Canada. I have never before complained but am doing so in this case because today's experience truly put me over the top when the airline's blatant disregard for my circumstances and needs as a customer and overbooking practices went beyond causing annoyance and inconvenience. I am therefore requesting a full refund of the ticket I purchased only to be bumped off the flight I paid for."
Cons: "The frustrating portion was the airline's lack of desire to fix our problems. The first flight was late because of mechanical issues and then Air Canada was not at all forthcoming in getting us rebooked on the next flight. Something that should have been quite simple involved me having to fight with workers just to get put on a new flight -- nobody wanted to actually do the work."
Pros: "The sits were comfortable. More space between sits."
Pros: "Terrible, only one spot open, long lines. We missed boarding and were forced to wait 4 hours after already 10 hours travel. No help and no mercy at the custom area."
Cons: "Use all airport customs agent's desks after a large plane arrivals."
Pros: "The flight on its own was just fine."
Cons: "We were delayed about five hours because of a mechanical issue, resulting in a plane change. Although it was apparent they knew about this well in advance, we were not told ahead of time. We could have spent way less time in the airport. The staff were all very friendly, but when it came to compensation we were only given a $10 meal voucher near the end of our five hour wait. Most people had eaten by then, so it felt like it was the very least they could do to make up for the inconvenience."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant and efficient. The entertainment consoles were nice, having games and movies and flight tracking."
Cons: "Not notified about long flight delay until 5 mins before scheduled boarding. Happened once with my flight and twice with my daughter's."
Pros: "Same as first flight."
Cons: "My passport was still valid but didn't have the 3-6 months left on it (a rule I didn't know about) and was told about this at the air canada counter without any concern or direction. Was in shock."
Uncomfortable seats, unfriendly crew, going up and down stairs, taking buses, all with hang luggage, not a nice experience, even flying business.
Special food order that was confirmed by e-mail was unavailable Weighing of carry on luggage was ridiculous with items being shifted from one bag to another Business class seating was inferior to other airlines
We rode in Business class which allowed for priority boarding and comfortable seating. Flying across the Atlantic from Lisbon to San Francisco, I found the configuration and comfort of the seats lacking. The USB and earphone outlets were in a very awkward position, right under your knees and hard to find without a flashlight. Once in the seat, it was awkward to get out. The cabin crew was very pleasant and the food was okay. For the price I thought it was a good deal over all.
Crew was annoyed every time I asked something.
Comfortable aircraft, clean facilities and friendly staff.
Actually getting my checked luggage back would have been nice
Pros: "TAP always has great team members and crew. They are polite, professional and helpful. The flight itself is comfortable and relaxing; very enjoyable."
Cons: "TAP does not check your bags all the way through if you are having a layover. This makes NO SENSE and requires that you retrieve your luggage from baggage claim, and then check in once more and then another trip through security once again! This never happens in the US - one of the few things we get right. Also, I have never had to board a plan from the tarmac since 1970 in the US - why do we have to always wait for and take buses from our check in gate out to the flight line? And how is this ever considered, "Premium Boarding?" It's like a cattle car. Fix these things and I will sing the praises of TAP forever."
Cons: "1 hour delay Duden to luggages!"
Pros: "Crew was very good. Seats were spacious. Plenty of entertainment."
Cons: "More frequent snacks."
Pros: "Crew was great, the plane was barely full, so you were able to stretch out."
Cons: "Food could be better."
Pros: "Everything !!!! No delayed seat was great food great multi média great"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The offered an upgrade to bid on. I did and was rewarded one for the 4 of us. It turned out that the seats were exactly like every other seat on the plane in size. They did provide free drinks and a well used towel. When you ask to be paid for an upgrade you should be clear what that really is."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and food was very good."
Cons: "The toilet sinks were clogged and dirty."
Pros: "Great entertainment selection."
Cons: "I had two flights that day: TAP Portugal: greeters, assistance loading carry-on, fish with potatoes and spinach, glass of wine, pudding, sandwich, carrot cake bite, coffee and a blanket. Jet Blue: water three hours in, (unhealthy) bag of chips."
Cons: "Wait time on buses from-to airplane to terminal was long."
Pros: "Crew was outstanding"
Pros: "food and price"

Pros: "Very nice flight."
Cons: "Boarding should be more organized."
Cons: "I was dehydrated because I could barely get enough water to drink"
Pros: "The staff were somewhat helpful, and fairly friendly"
Cons: "The seats for a 5-hour flight couldn’t recline. The plane was freezing, there was no entertainment on the flight, and the seating wasn’t evenly distributed. There were many economy rows with only one person, then rows right next to that full with three people. The food wasn’t good either."
Pros: "The web page said that I did not have to pay for my baggage, but I had to pay an expensive price."
Cons: "You have to add the price that we really going to pay, not a price to make the people think that it is a cheap price."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. Very professional, kind, and accommodating."
Cons: "The boarding check-in person was confusing. Anyone that didn't speak Spanish got in the wrong line. They didn't announce that there were two lines, one for A and one for B. So we were mistakenly directed to stand in the line for a Madrid flight, when we were going to Lisbon. They made the last minute call only in Spanish, so we all almost missed the flight. The landing was a bit rough with crosswinds."
Pros: "I liked that the airline provided blankets pillows and headsets at no extra cost for our 8 hour flight. The crew were very nice and accommodating. The food was good."
Cons: "I did not like having to pay 75 Euro for one checked bag. That should Have been more clearly set out when booking a flight. The entertainment could have been better. Poor reception for some shows."
Pros: "Easy to get on board"
Cons: "Just it was delayed"
Cons: "Boarding gate too small. Suoer overcrowded"
Pros: "Excellent attention by the crew and the food."
Pros: "Comfortable chairs with foot support., friendly staff, good food and choice of entertainment."
Pros: "I was very comfortable with empty seats in my row."
Cons: "No entertainment facilities."
Cons: "Next-day connecting flight after a delayed arrival and involuntary stopover in Porto due to air traffic over LIS. This time around, the flight took off an hour late because of [guess...] air traffic. Well, my dear LIS management, that's how you sink your national carrier."
Pros: "Same as previous flight"
Cons: "Same as previous flight"
Pros: "No power @ seats. No Internet, no spirits just wine and beer. seats are not padded enough for 7 hour flight.. Old equip."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Smaller plane, tighter space, no entertainments"
Pros: "Very good leg room. Easy pleasant flight."
Pros: "The new Business Class is phenomenal! Best seats I've experienced in a Business Class thus far. Too bad the transatlantic flight from New York to Lisbon is too short to enjoy it longer."
Cons: "There is nothing that I did not like, other than that the flight duration was too short. ;-)"
Pros: "It was all ok"
Cons: "I took 3 TAP flights while in Europe, and they were always late!"
Pros: "My wife needs help getting around but they placed us in the last row. No leg room again either. The crew was understanding and helpful."
Pros: "New plane. Great service."
Cons: "Seats are very small. No entertainment system."
Cons: "The online check in open for a flight from the us to the europe must be open 24 before, indeed it has been opened only 16 hours before..."
Cons: "Terrible TAP service. Missed my flight to no fault of my own and I was made to buy a new ticket. No changrs, no partial refund, couldn't even use my return ticket which I had to rebook too. Nice customer service !!!"
Pros: "My flight was punctual, the seats are comfortable, steady take off and landing"
Cons: "Lobster appetizer was dry, hard, and tough. Steak dinner was prepared nicely, but of medium- low quality meat. Announcements are not heard in headphones, which in emergency situations could be dangerous. Noise reducing headphones supplier are effective in the noise reduction function, but not high quality audio resolution, with some dialogue intelligible. Business class seat wasn't a full recline as are those of most competitors, but it was comfortable. I didn't see any snack offerings that most other airlines have available between meals."
Pros: "Food. Movies. Recliner in business class. Assistance when i had a stroke in Portugal"
Cons: "No country music"
Pros: "Everything was perfect. More than I expected and would certainly fly with them again."
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Not being able to check in and pick seats until 24 hours before flight"
Not the way I had expected
Work on entertainment systems and seat comfort. Seats are very old and worn out. Entertainment systems not working,
Pros: "i could not contact momodo not in e-mail, telephone or chat momodo was real bad with solving problems and i will not recommend you with any way"
Pros: "Great crew, Food."
Cons: "Reduce baggage charges."
Cons: "I changed my flight but they didn’t change it and now I’m stuck!!!"
Cons: "Plane was very very old"
Pros: "They an amazing crew"
Cons: "They need to improve on the flight check-in and boarding at thier airport in Bole, it is so messy. Also thier inflight menu is nothing special"
Pros: "Crew is friendly."
Cons: "The plane is old, tatty and dirty. There is no entertainment. The airport transfer is very very shoddy."
Pros: "Crew was so nice and very helpful"
Cons: "Timing, delayed by 20 minutes"

Cons: "Nothing very nice flight."
Pros: "The crew was great. Extremely accommodating for families."
Cons: "Nothing. Very smooth"
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."
Pros: "I liked the crew. They are kind."
Cons: "The boarding in Addis was an absolute nightmare. No one could figure out where to go and when. Mombasa and Nairobi flight boarding was mixed. I've never seen anything like this. There was not enough room in the boarding area so everyone was pushing and shoving. I can't recommend Ethiopian airways to anyone after this experience."
Pros: "Seats, pillows, blankets, entertainment system, crew."
Pros: "The crews"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Flight crew was nice and responded to problems well. More trash pick up and water service would have been nice as it was a thirsty, long flight. I was given more water when asked it just wasn’t freely offered."
Cons: "The arrangement of the airport was disconcerting. To get to your gate you have to pass a another security point that you can not leave. The area was akin to a cattle yard. No bathroom, water, or amenities. You had to stay in your pen until boarding. Duty free was not allowed and had to be purchased on the plane for an additional cost. Not to mention the whole stopping in Dublin, Ireland for fuel without notice. There was nothing in my paperwork about it and we were only told to stay in our seats for the next hour or so while they refueled. We didn’t do that on the flight over was that was worrying and we were given no additional information."
Pros: "I took a roundtrip to Addis Abeba, Ethiopia from Washington, DC. The trip was 13 hours there and 16 on the way back (I think that included a refueling stop in Dublin). There was plenty of food and beverages provided throughout the flight - usually every 3 hours or so. Blankets, pillows, and several movie/entertainment were provided."
Cons: "I would prefer the the main cabin lights be kept off longer."
Cons: "Checking in was poor. The booking didn't reflect in jhb or in two Aviv. Special meal was requested and not provided."
Pros: "The food was amazing and the plane is more comfortable and you can relax."
Cons: "The headphones weren’t working and boarding at Addis was very poor. They should have more personal when checking before the Gates"
Cons: "Did not provide special meal although I called ahead to request it. Connecting flight left before we arrived to Addis Ababa. Customer service tried to encourage the thought that putting us on a different flight was a courtesy..."
Cons: "Price. Ease of early checkin"
Pros: "Meal service plentiful. They kept the bathrooms very clean"
Cons: "This plane seemed older not as spacious or as clean as planes on Ethiopian I've traveled on before. Horrible film selections, and it's the same coming and going."
Pros: "After a bit of confusion in ADD airport, we reached the terminal where my connecting flight was leaving from. Terminal 1 of ADD airport should be avoided at all costs! Boarding and the flight crew did a admirable and top job and made the difference for me."
Cons: "Terminal 1 Disgusting. Rundown, embarrassing, chaos everywhere and no real sense of security. No police or security presence. You could just walk right into a gate! I was shocked to see this especially being from NYC. If you can avoid Terminal 1 do so. The seats were DISGUSTING! Dirty, warped fabric seating was dirty and caked on. Smelled and many seats were visually broken. I'm glad I brought with me some Clorox wipes to wipe my area down with. You get what you pay for but wow! I would not spend my money on this airline again."
Pros: "Sleeping most of the way"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and professional."
Cons: "They lost my bag, there was no announcement that the flight was boarding."
Pros: "Customer service was great and the restrooms were cleaned regularly unlike some long haul flights where it's not the case."
Pros: "See above."
Cons: "See above."
Cons: "The waiting time for the connecting flight to was far too long...."
Cons: "Lack of customer service. Due to the delay in Washington, we missed our connecting flight. Though the EA personnel knew of our delay and missed flight, we still had to wait in line at the counter for 3 hours in order for them to put us up in a hotel and make other arrangements. Though they had 15 hours to do this for us, they did not. They served some customers and did not serve others. There was no communication whatsoever, they just handed us papers without explaining what was happening."
Pros: "Entertainment options were good and they fed you several times"
Cons: "-changed flight schedule several times after booking ticket -3/4 segments were delayed causing me to miss connections - staff unaware of procedures -several mechanical problems with plane -still do not have bags after 7 days -no compensation provided for inconvenience -poor customer service"
Pros: "The seats were OK but not as good as in the larger airplanes. Vegetarian option for food was good. Airplane was half empty which made moving around quite easy and nice. Flight attendents were willing to help!"
Cons: "Independence day is perhaps not the best movie for a flight. Only one option as there are no personal media systems."
Pros: "Long flight but comfortable. Pleasant crews"
Cons: "Horrible food selection, needs improvement"
Pros: "No delays The food on board was good. The drinks were fine My luggage was safe"
Cons: "The basement waiting area at the Addis Ababa airport was very cold and the toilets were dirty and smelly as well The crew were unfriendly and unreasonable the time of alighting"
Pros: "We are so tired of showing up our passports many times in the ethiopian air lines. Overall we had a very good trip and the crews were so nice."
Pros: "It was a good flight, made only a little disappointing by all the children running through the plane, opening the washroom doors and leaving them open. A little strange, really."
Pros: "The service inside"
Cons: "At Addis the waiting room was so crowded and did not understand the announcemnets."
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: "personal screens (despite the issue we had) food was nice fairly new plane - no problems with pressure during landing/takeoff..."
Cons: "touch screens didn't work, even after the stewards said system was rebooted (had to use the buttons to navigate)"
Pros: "this part of the flight was not a pleasant one. the crew kept passing me over no matter how much I called. but they seemed more attentive to their native people (Ethiopian) because they spoke the same language. this was frustrating, the entertainment did not work for the entire flight, thank God I had my Bible to read...."
Cons: "It is unacceptable to have you go from the gate down two flights of stairs with your carryons so you can board a bus to take you to the plane."
Cons: "Everything was excellent thank you so much"
Pros: "Late boarding ruined everything !!"
Cons: "Late boarding! Crew lack of customer service skill! Food wasn’t good enough as well! ....etc"
Pros: "comfy seats"
Cons: "nothing for now"
Cons: "Respect times of flights & communication with passengers at counters"
Cons: "Baggage handlers strike caused 3 hour delay departure. Plane was hot and bathrooms dirty. Food was good along with entertainment. Luggage was slow. Overall I would not recommend this airline."
Pros: "Leg room was good"
Cons: "We were prevented from bringing water on board and then only provided with small glasses three times during the long flight."
Pros: "Nothing is fine , food is shity"
Pros: "Timeliness of food and cleaning up."
Cons: "Crew's short patience with customers"
Pros: "Very accommodating airline. Would use them again"
Cons: "The airline wasn't the issue, but the passengers seated around me didn't give me any space or an armrest. I wish I had had a window or aisle seat on that particular flight. The service was otherwise fine, but being that boxed in for so many hours cast the whole flight in a less than pleasant light."
Pros: "The crew was responsive to needs that came up."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour and we didn’t actually leave for two hours because the boarding process was so disorganized. They had us line up over an hour before we could actually board the plane. People are so irritable that a shouting fight broke out in the process. The screens on the back of the seats work inconsistently. No wifi. And this was on the Dreamliner! not the worst flight I’ve been on but negatives definitely outweighs positives."
Pros: "The crew on board was excellent"
Cons: "The boarding process was the worst I’ve ever seen. No communication and when there was seemed very annoyed"
Cons: "Flight was overbooked. Had an issue getting my ticket 2.5 hours prior to schedule flight departure. Flight was originally scheduled to leave at 4:30. It was first delayed to 8:50 p.m. Then further delayed to 10:00 p.m. Plane left Casablanca much later than 10:00 p.m. which caused a very late arrival to IAD airport, 2:30 a.m. Boarding was a disaster. Stayed in line for over an hour not knowing if the plane was going to take off from Casablanca. No water was distributed and no communication was shared with the passengers until the crew announced boarding."
Pros: "I liked the flight in general. No turbulence and the flight crew was accommodating"
Cons: "The seats were outdated"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and efficient. Seats and food were fine. Flight was smooth and on schedule.. Generous free checked baggage. Rare today!"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic with passengers made to wait in the jcorridor for 10-15 minutes until boarding continued. Board when the bus is waiting and plane doors are open! On board my 787 flight, the tray tables were very hard to close, the entertainment system didn’t work, and the bathroom, while not filthy, could have been a little cleaner."
Cons: "Delayed flight as they waited their passenger from Barcelona to arrive. Total chaos at baggage claim"
Cons: "Very poor help internationally"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Didn’t even have an option to pick a seat even though I tried through various venues (when purchasing tickets, setting a preference after buying, when checking in, in the airport after checking in); completely disorganized airline with no communication or customer service. Would never recommend this airline to another person even if it is the cheapest option. Can’t trust the airline to get you to your destination as they claim"
Cons: "Once again, there were some issues because I am pregnant. There was continued confusion and duplication with the release of liability forms, and then there was an unfortunate incident wherein my water was taken away prior to the boarding area with a promise that I could get more in the boarding area. This turned out not to be the case. Luckily, there was a very kind staff person who ran onto the plane and retrieved a bottle of water for me, but this should not be the policy."
Pros: "Longer flights have personal entertainment systems"
Cons: "Signage and communication in the Morocco airport was limited and often confusing"
Pros: "Aircraft and service"
Cons: "Smooth flight"
Pros: "I liked that i came to visit my daughter"
Cons: "Service and crew need a real makeover"
Pros: "This particular flight was fine. Royal Air gives a sense of being unreliable overall, though."
Cons: "I’m not sure how much the airlines can control this, but boarding in Morocco was an absolute nightmare both coming and going. There are gates but the boarding flights are not really posted clearly and not announced. Even standing right next to the final checkpoint, you are likely to miss the boarding call. Fortunately it is such a cluster that you have enough time to eventually figure it out and not get left behind. Also, many connecting passengers had to check in and get boarding passes in Casablanca and whoever was in charge of seat assignments simply could not have cared less. I was traveling solo, but witnessed at least 4 separate instances of families not getting seated together or even in close proximity - even couples!! I don’t think I’ve ever seen that many disgruntled passengers before a flight departs when a flight hasn’t been delayed or cancelled. Note to fellow passengers: If you’re traveling with others, check your tix/passes and ensure you’re sitting together before you walk away from the counter. And ask for clarification there if you’re not sure. If you make it to the plane with those passes, the plane crew will tell you that you accepted them so those are your seats - they will not work with you."
Pros: "Once in flight, the staff were courteous and the flight was uneventful"
Cons: "securuity at CSM was the pits. Way too many check points and very rude security personel. in flight food was pretty bad"
Pros: "Customer service was great."
Cons: "Airline routed bags to wrong destination"
Pros: "Seats on business class (dreamliner) but need for more ubs sockets Cabin crew Large variety of drinks Very large (maybe too) large portions of foods"
Cons: "Boarding with no attention to business class at baggage check and transportation to the aircraft Entertainment not including news Foods to be more diversified"
Pros: "I liked that it is non-stop and that Royal Air Maroc now flies to Washington DC rather than having to drive all the way to New York to catch a flight."
Cons: "Extremely slow and disorganized boarding process. After a child threw-up on the flight, staff was inattentive to assist family."
Cons: "it was very dirty and the bathrooms were broken not an enjoyable flight at all"
Cons: "Really the price is very expensive comparing to customer service which is null 0 , the food is nasty they make you feel like in the hospital , the crew is not helpful at all"
Cons: "Every single flight was significantly delayed, disorganized and with uncourteous staff. one flight was so delayed we missed our connection. I've reached out to Royal Air Moroc and no response."
Cons: "Again, there was confusion in the transactions that could have been improved with better communication."
Pros: "not over-booked, so was able to get my own row to sleep, efficient generally"
Cons: "male flight attendants and staff are a bit surly - some of the new security requirements, like having to check in computer and iPad when coming tot he US from Morocco, were not adequately explained or handled in a customer-service-oriented manner"
Pros: "Flight was a quarter empty so I could spread out a bit more. Food was better than most Airlines, including US Carriers. Didn't lose my bag or damage it."
Cons: "Check-in took 35-45 mins. See one person working while the other 3 sat around. On CMN-IAD leg i Got two cups of water with meal. Asked twice after meal and both flight attendants said ok but never returned with any. 2 hrs later I got up to get some water and went to galley and asked FA's for some. They didn't speak, they acted like I was bothering them and one pointed to the cups and water bottles...directing me to get my own. Never had that happen before and I fly often. US Air carriers typically have water Service at least once an hour. This flight it only occurred during meal Service, which was twice during entire 7.5 hour flight. Flight going IAD-CMN wasn't any better. I fell sick due to dehydration on the flight. Had same issue with not getting water on flight. Don't think I'll book Royal Air Maroc again."
Pros: "Decent food"
Cons: "flight needs wifi - larger selection of films."
Pros: "It was a comfortable flight and the staff were helpful."
Cons: "The vegetarian option one way was bland."
Pros: "Nice stuff, good food ..service too"
Cons: "I cant remember"
Pros: "The airline itself is pretty decent. The food is good enough. The dreamliner is a joy to fly. Entertainment at the seat is pretty good as well. The crew was friendly even though their english was quite hard to understand on the PA system. What I do like is that the crew does not sit there badgering you about cell phones and the like. Boarding could definitely be improved. It is like one huge gaggle of people when they ask to board. At least the flight operates on time."
Pros: "The weather"
Cons: "All but the weather"
Pros: "reasonable prices"
Cons: "Terrible experience. Never flying this airline again. Long security lines at Casablanca, the food was mostly bread and carbs-very little protein or vegetables, entertainment system was broken the entire flight, flight attendants rude and do not respond to call lights. My seat in the back was broken. Casablanca airport was stuffy and congested. People were smoking in the building."
Pros: "Ticket price and Non-stop flight to Casablanca from Dulles."
Cons: "Surly Flight attendants. Crowded flight conditions. Food is horrible and ran out of dinner options."
Pros: "I liked that it was a non-stop flight to Morocco. The service is rude and unprofessional, and the flight offering was minimal."
Pros: "boarding was easy, comfort was normal for an airplane"
Cons: "food was meh and cabin crew did not attend to people when they pushed the attendant button"
