They did not let my uncle fly
Cons: "All the food was terrible breakfast lunch and dinner I was sick from eating chicken I started vomiting as soon as I was on my way home , please serve better food , food tastes like factory junk , please offer cold drink and cold water or least ask if you would like ice, all the cups for the beverages was small, seating was very uncomfortable not enough room especially if you sitting next to a large person they kept elbow me and taking up my seating , I was so miserable on a 16 hours flight on Qatar to LAX , very bad experience , please do better, also staff was not friendly"
Pros: "Same again the crew were fab"
Pros: "Good service/Crew food quality and choice good."
Cons: "Need more choice of British TV Programmes rather than American"
Pros: "New plane and Q suite was excellent"
Cons: "The AVML selection could be better"
Pros: "the staff were friendly and accomplished good travel nothing was too much for them."
Pros: "Same as earlier flight"
Pros: "Fabulous crew, good choice of food and drinks and served whenever you want it. Good array of entertainment on offer but our flight was a 'sleeper' so after a fumble with the controls and the limited new releases, I opted to read instead. Seats are comfy and spacious, much wider than Emirates in the same class (who offer only an extra 1/2 inch width over economy). Amenity kit a quality piece that is both practical and useful."
Cons: "Crew seemed to have stopped referring to the passengers by name and offer a less-personalised service in Business than we have become accustomed to. The food choices while good, have been paired back as have the selection of wines."
Cons: "Had an 11hr delay overall, 3.5hrs sitting on the tarmac only to be told to disembark for dinner at the airport. Then told that we won't be getting on until 7am the next day, but only really started boarding at 8:30am. By the time we were told about the reschedule to the next morning, it was too late to get a hotel room (too far away) and was told that I could use a 'Quiet Lounge' at the airport (which wasn't quiet). While waiting to board at 7am the next day, ground staff told us that they had to change the plane so there would be a further delay. On boarding, we discovered that it was the SAME PLANE."
Pros: "Qatae Airways is second to non as always"
Pros: "At gate boarding was I inefficient and managed professionally. On board entertainment was glitchy as the movies paused and skipped the entire flight."
Cons: "The staff were not trained well and unaware of how to conduct proper flow of customer screening."
Pros: "Overall a good service with good food."
Cons: "When flying from New Zealand to Doha, we departed Auckland at 15h25 and due to the time zone, most passengers body clocks would have been expecting sleep within a few hours. However we were flying West and thus into daylight. Sadly the window seated passengers were not asked to close their window blinds to block out the sunlight and many were left open. This made the cabin very bright and a difficult environment in which to sleep. Too much advertising before the on board videos, but otherwise content was good."
Pros: "another whole row to myself which meant i slept for most of the flight. food was ok, not as good as on the first flight."
Cons: "headrest is no rest at all, very uncomfortable as it does not adjust other then up or down."
Pros: "Food crew and entertainment were all good thanks"
Cons: "A child behind me kept kicking the back of the seat all the time and the mother did nothing about it"
Cons: "The online check in system was down so we all had to line up to check in."
Pros: "Crew were helpful and not interefering in long flight"
Cons: "Flight from Qatar to Seoul was quite old I believe. USB on my chair did not work and media in LCD screens were not new enough. seats were quite old and not convenient for 10 hours flight."
Pros: "the flight was comfortable"
Cons: "USD 20 wi fi and you only get 200 MB seems a bit antiquated"
Pros: "Excellent crew who were warm and attentive. Wide range of entertainment options."
Cons: "Food was disappointing. No western option despite it being a London bound flight."
Pros: "A shorter flight after long one and a short connection in Doha. Amazing crew, offering lots of help with my baby, again plenty of food, quite tasty, we have been offered seconds and flight wasn't full :) this time in a bassinette row which was a bliss for at least some of the time."
Cons: "The bassinette row seats were quite narrow and less comfortable, again the entertainment options dissapointing."
Cons: "Hi I travelled on 7/16 from Philadelphia to Cairo through the Jordanian airline . Unfortunately the luggages didn't reach to Cairo airport with me . 3 days later they told me that the luggages in Jordan and I have to travel from Alexandria city to Cairo to receive my luggages . When I went their , I found my luggages were opened and missing much items . I made reports on the airport. The employees in the airport they wondered why the opened the selling box , and the box looks empty. The weight for this box was 32 kilograms in the time of shipping. And I paid $400 for extra weight . But when I received it was like 20 kilograms. Plus I paid $350 for Qater airline for shipping 3 luggage . That's means I paid $750 for shipping 3 luggages and I received it looks empty . I need refund for all shipping and $5000 for damages items , or I will complain this airlines through the American court . Thank you"
Pros: "Have flown emirates and etihad business - now sampled the best by far. Qatar's a380 was incredible but the a330 on wind leg whilst not as nice was mademupmfor by the best crew I have experienced ever - WOULD NOT HESITATE TO FLY AGAIN"
Cons: "The Oryx system lackedmin recent movies ....that's the only complaint"
Pros: "The was very hospitalty"
Cons: "Every thing was amazing"
Cons: "The airport did not have air conditioning, which was very annoying given the temperature outside was 30C."
Pros: "In-flight entertainment is excellent. Some of the grew also excellent. Had excellent seat 68d. Lots of leg room. Aircraft looked brand new."
Cons: "6 hour delay with no explanation. No apology. Stuck in transit with nothing to do. Not impressed at all. Boarding also delayed. Food on this flight was very poor."
Pros: "Generally ok but not as good as other Middle East carriers"
Cons: "The leg room on this flight felt less generous than other carrier and the food was poor almost inedible. The aircraft (777) seemed much noiser than other aircraft I have flown on and the noise from the toilet flush could be heard 10 rows away"
Pros: "Quick boarding/ friendly ground staff as well as the cabin crew! Food was great(even though I don't normally eat plane food) but I enjoyed their meals! Plenty of leg room with the seat compared to other airlines I have flown with! Free wifi on certain planes(even though for 15 mins, better than nothing!)"
Cons: "Could have a bit more choice of movies but wasn't bad"
Pros: "I can understand what kind of flight it was because it was a small plane"
Cons: "Bad smells and an old plane i hope you will change the plane to another better one"
Pros: "Seat and space"
Cons: "Food was pathetic."
Pros: "Left on time. Great pilot and crew - very concerned about our welfare. Quick flight. Nice aircraft."
Pros: "Spacious single seat Plenty of handy storage Pajamas provided Quiet cabin Great service Lounge wonderful as ever Not woken until last minute"
Cons: "Boarding a bit haphazard"
Cons: "Cabin temperature in my section was slight hot and was uncomfortable until we complained to the supervisor. Steward spilt food on the floor next to our seat"
Pros: "I travel from Sydney to Europe (UK and Greece) regularly. My experience with Qatar airways was fantastic: I highly recommend it. First of all, the travelling hours are a bit shorter (compared to travelling via Singapore or Hong Kong) probably because of the geography of the cities/connections and the corresponding flight times between Athens-Doha-Sydney. The aircraft was exceptional (I believe it was Airbus A380). It was a double-deck, wide-body and four-engine jet airliner. Cabin and economy class seats were very comfortable and more spacious compared to other aircraft. There was minimal turbulence, which is partially due to the type of aircraft: at least this is my understanding. The aircraft also had wi-fi (complimentary for the first 15 min) and one was allowed to use the mobile phone during the flight (except during take off and landing times). The flight attendants were absolutely amazing. Also, the crew was very understanding and friendly with children. Food was also excellent and in good portions. Overall there was high tech aircraft, excellent service and no delays. I will choose it again in the future."
Cons: "On the downside, I had a problem with my entertainment device during the whole flight: there was no sound, so I was not really able to watch any movies/TV.. The flight attendants tried to sort it out, but it was not possible. They kindly brought complimentary magazines and drinks/snacks, however it would have been much preferable if I could watch a movie or if free wi-fi was offered for the whole flight, as compensation.. My understanding is that this was not an option, due to problems providing free password..."
Pros: "it makes my trip wonderful. Thanks quatar airlines and kayak"
Pros: "the comfort of the flight was very good."
Cons: "there could have been a little bit bigger portion of food."
Cons: "Only 1 meal on a six hr flight was stingy. - not even snacks. Unfriendly staff. No opportunity to choose seats despite checking in online the day before - we were allocated 2 adjacent seats but there were none others shown as available on the entire aircraft."
Pros: "Short flight to LCA from DOH. Efficient staff"
Cons: "Old A320 plane, no seat back entertainment, seating looking old Plastic food , very poor. Same thing happened to me last year, still no improvement on this flight sector. Definitely not 5 Star service that Qatar constantly advertises."
Cons: "Take off delayed. Plane had air conditioning problems."
Pros: "The entire experience from booking, to checking-in, to the actual experience on board the flight were so smooth, I thought it was too good to be true. Turbulence usually makes me nervous, but I barely felt it on this flight. Finally and most importantly, on such a long-haul flight, the entertainment options were amazing,"
Cons: "The food and the Duty Free shopping selection could improve a little bit."
Cons: "Chairs very stiff, tight smpace"
Pros: "Everything. The service, the staff, the comfort. It was just a pleasure flying with Qatar"
Pros: "Attentive service"

Pros: "Everything...quick board,friendly crew,nice flight, good food, in flight entertainment was good....just a really nice airline to go with"
Pros: "The crew are friendly and polite, which mitigates the negative stuff on the right to some extent."
Cons: "It's an older plane on this route, which feels comparatively tired; it has the old lean-back seats, which are a bit less comfortable than the newer lean-back, slide-forward ones. The entertainment system is older, so you lose leg-room in aisle seats, and there is less on offer. And because the flight was completely full, you do feel very restricted (not QR's fault, but a function of narrow seats)."
Pros: "Leaving Doha was excellent"
Cons: "Took forever to get out of emigrations, we landed at different terminal and had to get train over. coming back the flight was delayed and it was just nutts trying with everyone trying to get on board."
Pros: "King Hamad Airport is more comfortable and convenient than its Dubai equivalent. Staff were courteous."
Cons: "Dreamliner has very narrow chairs. I was uncomfortable in both directions. The toilets also seem to leak or splash water on the floor. Not a nice airplane."
Pros: "Every thing great thank you"
Pros: "Overall was perfect"
Cons: "All was excellent, seated can be back forward instead sliding and last not least phone charge its a minimum to have"

Pros: "One member of the crew on business was extremely wonderful. Happy, smiling enjoying her work and very efficient."

Pros: "The crew was very polite"
Cons: "If they had announced the boarding earlier"

Cons: "The toilets in the business needs perfumes and hand creams"
Pros: "The crew were amazing, beautiful flight and super landing"
Cons: "Keep it up"
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Seats are a bit uncomfortable"
Cons: "Boarded 30 min late and only one crew member to check in the entire plane, long delays. The flotation device was dangling from the seat in front of me. Why they have to run commercials for 15 minutes when you sit down when you've already paid to fly?"
Pros: "I liked it Being a direct flight and the quick boarding"
Cons: "Food seems to be getting worse and entertainment sound quality is very poor and selection of movies is also poor"
Cons: "The landing was a little bit rough. It would have been nice if the captain warns the passengers that there is some turbulence. So we know what to expect."
Pros: "Great food, big bags of peanuts, great entertainment options with high quality earbuds provided."
Cons: "Standard legroom seats that move forward if you recline- meaning if you are tall you cannot recline"
Pros: "All was Ok"
Cons: "We faced a little delay in flight departing from Abu Dhabi"
Pros: "the crew were so friendly. the food was good."
Cons: "Airline made no attempt to rectify the situation. 9 hour delay on a 1 hour flight?!!"
Pros: "The over crowded airport and and bad management gave bribery to pass the crowed a chance"
Cons: "Needs management ful review and big changes"
Pros: "Very spacious and new aircraft from MEA. What’s more, the captain landed the plane exceptionally smoothly but that’s no surprise from coming from that airline."
Cons: "When u r listening to a movie and the crew speaks to the passengers the voice is extremely high. Very disturbing"
Pros: "The only direct flight between my base and destination"
Cons: "Inflight lack of maintaining clean toilets - food quality needs improvement and entertainment is very dated"
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Food and entertainment selection can be improved"
Cons: "some flight attendants weren't professional. They argued with each other in front of us"
Pros: "The hospitality is very nice. new plane good food, good service , nice seats and warm blankets."

Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "The boarding was fast and good."
Cons: "The amount of time you are forced into watching ads. The smelly passengers The airplane wasn't clean!"
Pros: "Boarding. Hostesses greetings and attitude"
Cons: "1- Seat Cushions are all used up and have become uncomfortable to sit on. 2- Safety video was thought to be a limited time promotion, yet has seemingly replaced hostesses safety instructions role and has become over-used and abnoxious to listen to each time. 3- food variety is low and choices of entertainment is limited compared to the price being paid. 4- over the last few years of travelling with MEA, the RUH- BEY trajectory has flown on time a handful of instances. Though it might be the most expensive usd/mile flown. not sure what mea's problem is."
Pros: "Aircraft, crew, food and beverage service."
Cons: "Boarding can be awkward for Americans not used to foreign airports."
Cons: "My reservation was cancelled and I had to buy another ticket at the airport for double the price."

Its really a very bad experience."
Cons: "I had a problem with my business class chair.. it was stuck... and same for the tv later than ..."
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "Regarding food, we had 2 options which one of them is not available at all. It was either chicken or fish and there's no chicken and I don't eat fish. Is that normal! I paid for this!!"

Pros: "Best service, comfortable and pretty crew"
Pros: "crew need to be more polite and kind"
Cons: "just a more kind crew would be great"
Cons: "It was very hot inside the plane"
Cons: "I was not allowed to fly because the reason was “tourist” even though the website said that Croatia was open to tourists. I was not given a straight answer as to what is going on the whole day. The assistants at the Turkish ticket counter were very friendly but the experience was so stressful as I was stuck at the airport and there are no ATM’s so I could not pay for a visa to get a hotel to stay in Turkey for the night. I finally managed to pay online, but really just a horrible experience all around."
Pros: "the plan"
Cons: "seevce was bed 10! hour alihhvwiyhb2 snacks"
Pros: "No complaints, Turkish airlines is simply one of the best company in Europe."

Cons: "The entertainment system is old, not easy to use, and lacks features."
Cons: "More space and room"
Pros: "Everything. They were polite fast and never condescending to passengers."
Cons: "I could of wish they would have been a little more stern with some passengers."
Cons: "The flight from LAX Ron Istambul was delayed for 2.5h, then the flight from Istanbul to belgrade was delayed by 3.5h. Then we learned that our luggage did not arrive, after waiting for all the bags to come out. This was by far the worst flight we have ever experienced!"
Pros: "Crew was exceptional. Very polite and helpful. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Food is not that great. They served a beef dish as the second meal without a non-meat alternative. Seats are pretty tight and the movie selection was not that great, although they offered dozens of options so it could just be my taste in movies."
Cons: "My suitcase was completely soaked from the rain in Istanbul. It must have been left on the tarmac in Istanbul before it was loaded onto the aircraft. I had clothes on the inside that needed to be dried once in Cairo."
Pros: "Crew and food on last leg were acceptable"
Cons: "Every other part of the flying Turkish air experience, particularly Istanbul airport itself. Delayed flights, missed connections, rude, angry staff, worst layout and signage of terminal space. Exhausting."
Cons: "The flight was late, with no explanation."
Pros: "The crew members were really nice"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Cons: "The Crew was on top of passengers requests. I asked three different crew memberrs for paper towels and no one delivered."
Cons: "Movies are not very new, i was asked to clear security again at istanbul gate after going to bathroom but i guess that makes me feel safe even though was inconvenient"
Pros: "In flight entertainment and snack even for a short 1 hr flight"
Cons: "Chaotic boarding process - seating assignments changed for lots of people last minute with no explanation"
Pros: "Service and food"
Pros: "Plane clean, newish. Went up, took us there, landed."
Cons: "The food - I always have a v-meal - is sadly inadequate. Not enough of it, and very unimaginative. And they always supply the same thing, unless I was just unlucky to have the same thing three times in a row. The entertainment system kept dropping playback, (crashing) so I would have to restart playing the video. Something similar happened on another Turkish flight."
Cons: "I book flights and they toke money and last minute when i went to the airport is not existing at all"
Cons: "Flight was overbooked, which is always an annoying inconvenience. As a result, the flight was significantly delayed. When the plane landed the pilot immediately had to take off again which was really unusual and unsettling. But eventually we were able to properly land."
Cons: "gate was announced at the last minute, and within 5 or 10 minutes of the announcement, the plane was boarding. the boarding process was not handled well. the entire hallway leading to several gates was blocked off for checking boarding passes and passports. it was not at all clear what was going on. no explanations were offered, and there was a huge crowd stuck in the hallway."
Pros: "Hello the service was excellent"
Pros: "The amazing entertainment system."
Cons: "The smell of feet, and nausea from turbulence after food (not really Turkish's fault). Also, I'm getting too used to the food by now, and it doesn't seem to change much."
Pros: "The seats have ex space"
Cons: "Counter check in had me take some close off my bags for over weight even I’m allowed to carry two Luggage and. I had one only"
Pros: "First Airline to harass me about the weight on my bag -- small carry on -- had to check kill me on time. The seats have no legroom -- my back is killing me. The internet could not take my money -- so I could not get'out crucial emails -- it seems like the service was more interested in collecting my email addresses and password -- instead to simply directing me to the payment method -- waste of time."
Cons: "Just about everything"
Cons: "The people smell very bad !!"
Cons: "No beer or wine with meals, noisy flight and cheap headphones"
Pros: "The Airport and shopping"
Cons: "the flight from Cairo to Egypt was extremely bad . I understand that the relationship between both countries is not at its best. However, this is not an excuse for racist and bigoted behavior from You staff , the plane was 2 hours late, the staff was literally yelling at the passengers because they were standing at the gate assigned to the ticket. And your plane crew was extremely rude, this one flight attendant frowned at my wife's face and starting sanitizing her hand after my wife gave her ticket."
Cons: "NO ONE IN TURKISH AIRLINES WILL HELP YOU AND WHEN YOU ASK FOR HELP IT BECOMES AN INCONVENIENCE FOR THEM. HERE'S THE STORY, MY FLIGHT WAS 2 HOURS LATE SO WHEN WE LANDED TO CATCH OUR TRANSIT FLIGHT IT WAS ALREADY GONE. SO WHEN WE ARRIVE TO SPEAK TO SOMEONE ABOUT A HOTEL OR FOOD THEY HAND US THIS PAPER AND TOLD US TO GO TO THE HOTEL THAT IS IN THE AIRPORT IT WOULD BE FOR FREE ALONG WITH THE FOOD. WHEN WE GET THERE THEY TOLD US NO, IT IS ONLY FOR BUSINESS TRAVELERS AND WHEN WE EXPLAIN THAT PASSPORT CONTROL SENT US HERE WITH THIS PAPER THEY RESPONDED NO, WE NEED A HOTEL VOUCHER AND WE NEED TO GO BACK. WHEN WE ASK HER TO CALL PASSPORT CONTROL (BECAUSE THEY ARE THE ONES WHO SENT US TO THEM) TO SPEAK TO THEM YOURSELF, SHE SAYS "IT'S NOT OUR PROBLEM" WHICH THEN MADE ME SNAP AT HER AND TELL HER WTF DO YOU MEAN ITS NOT YOUR PROBLEM? YOU WORK HERE!!" SO WHEN I ASK FOR THE MANAGERS NUMBER FOR COMPLAINT SHE GIVES ME A 5 DIGIT NUMBER THAT LOOKS MORE LIKE A ZIP CODE THEN A PHONE NUMBER. THEN WE GO BACK TO PASSPORT CONTROL WHO TOLD US THAT WE WOULD HAVE A FREE HOTEL AND FOOD THEY CHANGED THERE STORY AND DIRECTED US TO PAY FOR A VISA AND PAY FOR A HOTEL OUTSIDE. SO IN THE END THEY GAVE US A BULLSHIT STORY SO THEY CAN GET RID OF US AND HAVE US RUN AROUND WHERE IN THE END WE GAVE UP AND SLEPT IN THE AIRPORT TILL WE GOT HOME. THIS IS WHEN I WAS COMING BACK WITH TURKISH AIRLINES. GOING TO MY PLACE OF DESTINATION THE FLIGHT WAS LATE 4 HOURS AND LUCKILY FOR US WE HAD A LONG LAYOVER THAT WE DIDNT MISS MY FLIGHT GOING TO MY PLACE OF DESTINATION. SO GOING AND RETURNING FLIGHT WAS LATE! WORST EXPERIENCE I EVER HAD!! I WOULD NEVER FLY WITH TURKISH AIRLINES! AND WHILE I WAS THERE FINALLY GETTING READY TO GO HOME A MAN SAT BEHIND ME AND ASKED ME IF I WAS GOING ON THE SAME FLIGHT AS HIM AND I TOLD HIM NO WHICH THEN HE STRIKES UP THE CONVERSATION AS TO HOW TURKISH AIRLINES MADE HIM MISS HIS FIGHT AND GAVE HIM HELL! SO I WAS NOT THE ONLY ONE WITH THIS PROBLEM! IN THE END HE SAID TO ME TURKISH AIRLINES IS GARBAGE! AND I DONT BLAME HIM!! STAFF WAS THE WORST THING TO DEAL WITH AT TURKISH AIRLINES!! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!"
Pros: "I like the food in the air craft it was good, but the crew seemed not wanting to speak inglish The are more willing to serve turkish speakers, They were not even able to solve seat problem. that I and my next seat guy decided to solve the issue by offering our seats to them so that they can sit together, the crew spoke poor english and we were held up by that seat problem, ask that crew member they will tell you what happend, After we gave up our saets to random girls who were also angry about turkish airline, we were able to take off for nairobi And yes the coffee store by the cafe nero and nearly all business refused to give us a wifi And turkish airport offers wifi to only those who have a turkish phone number that is so very low Shame on turkish airline for treating us the give us a free rides we are their bussiness and we will make sure that we stop giving our bussness It looks like they took their customers for granted and we will just tollered it but I will not and many people whom I know will not It is simply desaster... 0% service from the time you come to the airport untill boading time I had to ask about 5 deffrent men to tell me if where I was terminal. One but none of them know what i was saying And at the time my flight was sopposed leave 7:50 so I was freaking out And no one helping at that crtical moment I finaly got the delay flight info after running somany times up and down the road"

Pros: "The crew was very friendly. Great entertainment options. The seats were comfortable and fairly spacious. The food was also amazing!"
Cons: "My luggage was ruined due to poor handling."
Cons: "Flight was delayed but that wasn't the main problem. Went to the wrong gate for my connecting flight, Turkish air rep at the gate checked my boarding pass, didn't say a word about me being at the wrong gate. Tgere was no announcement of any kind (found out later, Turkish sir doesn't do announcement at the Istanbul airport. No clue as to why). Thought, tgere was another delay and by the time I asked, it was too late to catch my flight and that's when I got a full dose of every single person w Turkish air trying to stiff me with the most outrageous penalty for changing Nguyen my ticket. Started out at $1114 on a $758 ticket, then went down to $925 and if I stay over night, down to $750. Seriously? Rude, talking down at me and telling me that if I don't pay the penalty, my return ticket will be cancelled. I keep getting bounced from one person to another being told to wait here and wait there then I finally got so sick of all of it, bought a new connecting flight online, spending the night in Istanbul and will see what will happen w my return flight to the US. I call this 'theft' as, if i buy an entire new ticket from Istanbul to Cairo then back to the US online, it will cost me less than the penalty they're trying to get me to pay. Shame on you Turkish airline!! You'd think w all the issues they're having w tourism in their country these days they'd care about not doing this kind of mistreatment of their clients."

Rude staff, entertainment screen not working, food is horrible. The only good thing was check in process
As usual, Egyptair was late in departing, so I was late in arriving in Cairo for the connecting flight. It was a short one hour flight, but being 15 minutes late is not good.
Pros: "Crew was super friendly and helpful!!"
Cons: "I didn’t really like the available movies"
Cons: "Flight was a little warm"
Pros: "878-9 was amazing with seats flat. The 737-800 needs some improvements!"

Pros: "The crew was amazing, but the sit was uncomfortable"
Cons: "Since it's along trip the sits should be adjustable not to be straight throughout to avoid back pain"

Pros: "Stuff was professional"
Cons: "Really I have taken this flight several times and they are always perfect"

Cons: "The cabin temperature was quite warm hardly any air coming out of the air vents. I dont think they had all the air pacs on"
Cons: "I couldn't get my boarding passes online or at the airport kiosk after already checking in online before getting to the airport. I had to wait over an hour in line at the checkin desk just to get my boarding passes. The boarding process in Cairo was even more chaotic with unnecessary multiple disorganized checkpoints and line ups."
Cons: "I didn’t like that the food and the service and the chairs the floor is not clean actually that was bad flying flying"
Pros: "I really enjoyed when the plane LANDED at my Destination!"
Cons: "1. The plane was hot. In the Middle East they don't turn on the AC whilst on the ground. They only turn it on when in the air?!?! 2. The food was basic! I ordered the Seafood and it had 3 overcooked shrimp and baked fish. Not tasty at all. The bread was hard as a rock! 3. Boarding was like a cattle call!! Kind of like Southwest Airlines! 4. The Takeoff, Cruise and Landing was NOT bad at all! 5. I guess being an American, it was FOOLISH of me to ask for Ginger Ale on this Egyptian Flight!! 6. When I landed in Cairo, it would have been helpful to know that while going through Customs, I would need to purchase a Egypt Entry Visa fee for $25.00, but since I didn't know that, I waited in line for 20 minutes ONLY to have the Customs agent tell me that I had to go purchase one, then get back I line for ANOTHER 20 minutes!!!!!!! UGGHHHHHH!! 7. I flew on an Airbus that didn't have plug in for your phones to charge (maybe that's just a Boeing thing)."
Cons: "We received our baggage 2 days later"
Pros: "In flight service"
Cons: "Food is not as good as it looks"
Pros: "Good meals, and plenty of beverages."
Pros: "Flight was on time and I appreciate that."
Pros: "This flight was on time and I appreciate when Egypt Air flights are on time."
Pros: "This flight was on time and I truly appreciate when EgyptAir flights are on time."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Crew not attentive not trying to give the extra service that you pay so much money for. Food options hopeless. No welcome no introduction. Nondrink on arrival. I could’ve sworn that I was in a budget economy section. Old Shaking plane. Other than a business class seat you get nothing."
Cons: "Everything is bad, food is horrible, tea is cold, AC is not cold and not serving even water for 2 hours since the take off. When arrived we got transported to terminal in old bus after waiting long time for the bus to return from taking the first patch of passengers."
Pros: "Entertainment selection was decent, I was especially impressed by the very wide variety of music to listen to. The crew were very friendly, helpful and attentive. The plane was clean and presentable, especially the lavatories. The seats were comfortable and the blankets provided worked well too."
Cons: "Food was bland and the chicken dish was dry and difficult to chew. Movie selection on the entertainment system was mediocre, with limited variety of films in general and especially limited variety in languages other than English and Arabic. A problem which I encountered on board was a big gap between the ventilation panel at the base of the wall and the flooring, through which the dessert of my meal fell and which presented the risk of losing further items. I hope this is fixed promptly."
Pros: "Sufficient leg room."
Cons: "Crew need more training. Entertainment need to improve."
Cons: "Staff are rude in comparison to other airlines, hostess greeting us actually called my 2 year old naughty for touching the toilet door whilst boarding! Media is also limited and with constant interruptions, plus not available for take off or landing! Tray tables were dirty, I’ve honestly given up trying to eat the food on board these flights! Despite numerous tags and a note on my ticket the stroller is never able to be brought up to the aircraft door. I won’t be flying Egyptair again"
Pros: "We arrived safely."
Cons: "The plane was dirty and so cramped. The food was bad. The flight attendants were frustrated and angry. No internet options. The tv shows and movies were all old and there wasn’t very many options at all. Connecting in Cairo was complete chaos and so exhausting."
Pros: "Possibly the food and the flight is direct"
Cons: "Anything else you could think of. The crew is unfriendly the plane is messy no one follows rules or regulations just a complete mess"
Pros: "The dinner food was decent (breakfast was subpar)."
Cons: "We waited about an hour lined up outside of the gate to board. Then when we finally boarded late, we sat on the runway for 2 hours! This wasn’t the first time it’s happened on this flight, either! We were thirsty and no one offered us water. The flight attendants kept skipping my friend and I when they did come around, which was not often. We were extremely thirsty the entire time and when we finally were able to get up to use the bathroom and search for water, we were told to sit back down. We got tiny cups of water about three times on a 10.5 hour flight. Lastly, the entertainment selection was very small and limited."
Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "It took over an hour to check-in. People were pushing in because it was not well marked and nobody directing the people. It was terrible. The plane has very old seats, and no entertainment screen on seats, still the old monitors hanging from the roof."
Pros: "Good service and friendly environment"
Cons: "No comment"
Pros: "Fair was inexpensive."
Cons: "Too many security checks"
Pros: "Best landing ever, if I was sleeping I would not even have woken up during the landing. Well done to your skilled pilots."
Cons: "Entertainment selection was a little low, but the fact that you don't play any ads is great! Other airlines make you watch 30 mins + worth of ads."
Pros: "The people, the food, the culture."
Cons: "My daughter was traveling from Antalya to Cairo via Istanbul, her bag was missed in Cairo airport, we checked the system and we found that the bag was loaded from Antalya airport. She was in honeymoon trip and has many valuable items in her bag."
Pros: "The flight staff was SO helpful, and helped me beyond what I expected. The flight was very comfortable from start to finish."
Cons: "Having more movie options would have been good."
Pros: "Excellent Helpful boarding & on flight crew. New aircraft"
Cons: "Very poor entertainment choices."
Cons: "Old entertainment system, otherwise, everything else was fine"
Pros: "so, due to my nervousness and being upset so much so that I wanted to get off the plane, the crew let me sit in business next to a friend and the pilot and crew went to extreme lengths to make me feel safe and unafraid. The pilot answered all my questions and constantly checked that I was ok. Once we took off, despite cloudy rainy snowy skies, this turned out to be the best smoothest flight ever once it departed, and the pilot was probably the best ever I experienced on Egypt Air, and many other airlines actually. Shout out to a fantastic crew stewardess (Olfat Younis) and amazing pilot!! A really great experience"
Cons: "During pre-flight checks the plane had a technical problem that needed fixing just as about to taxi to runway, so had to sit and wait 2 hours for repair which made me extremely nervous and worried"
Cons: "No entertainment system was working"
Pros: "It is good airline"
Cons: "The flight was very late, the airline did nothing for the time we were waiting"
Pros: "Flight price and time"
Cons: "There was no choice for dinner. It was only a fait accompli that eating from one category remained. When I refused, they did not respond to my request to replace the food. I refused to eat it. The host did not agree to replace the food,"
Cons: "There was no complimentary toothbrush, and socks to wear like other international flights. To disembark from plane you have to go down stairs, which is not easy for seniors. And the same to board in the plane."
Cons: "Too little space for carry on compartments. Seats are too tight and tiny, very uncomfortable, staff not interacting or smiling, food was disgusting and tasteless, the aircraft seemed old and was so incredibly noisy the whole trip, and the ventilation was too bad the smell was just old and rusty."
Pros: "Everything good"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "I was impressed they gave us a full meal for only a 3.5 hr fought"
Cons: "Crew was a little rude"
Pros: "Transiet time"
Pros: "Handled disruptive customers well"
Cons: "Boarding and departure were late, food was terrible"
Cons: "الملاحين غير متعاونيين ويهددون The crew so bad"
Cons: "Meals could be improved"
Pros: "Overall its very k"
Cons: "Flight EY 653 screen touch sensitivity wad very bad"
Pros: "The flight was very quiet so I was able to lie down and get a good rest - I know this isn’t possible on every flight but it made the long flight a lot more comfortable. All of the crew members were very friendly and attentive. The food was really good and tasty (lamb curry I think it was) - best plane food that I’ve ever had. Good choice of new movies too."
Pros: "Nice crew. I'm a frequent flyer and my journey from Abu Dhabi to Cairo, the crew was very nice . (a preference for my first trip of the day though ;)) Everything was very good, except for the screen: on both planes I used this day, it didn't work but it was exceptional in experience. Free champagne! :p"
Cons: "Everything was very good except for the screen: On both planes that I used this day, it didn't work but it was exceptional in experience. The flight from Abu Dhabi to Cairo, no choice of food due to limited and badly anticipated quantities."
Pros: "Crew were awesome, food was amazing"
Pros: "All were very friendly: at the airport and in the plane. Good food. We were well informed and in time!!!"
Cons: "Crew was not as attentive as Emirates Airlines."
Pros: "Good food, comfort, boarding"
Cons: "Flight crew not very polite."
Pros: "Everything was perfect...seats crew food accuracy"
Pros: "Staff are friendly and helpful. Communication generally helpful. Flight comfortable other than for the food and seat cushioning. (see below) They handled our delayed connection brilliantly, putting us in a hotel in Abu Dhabi for the day. Very restful and handled very well."
Cons: "Food and comfort of seats. Pretty standard long-haul experience."
Pros: "In time"
Cons: "Crew not helpful . Same with food not enough ):"
Cons: "The worst airline experience overall. AVML food was requested but I have never had worst food than on this flight (ever in my life). The crew to abu Dhabi was Ok but I had the worst experience ever on the flight to Ahmedabad. I actually got yelled at by an air hostess because I accomodated an elderly couple to sit togather and I sat on next seat over. Not a common sense airline. The Abu Dhabi airport was hot as hell. Yes, inside the airport terminal was super hot, close to 90 degrees.... Emirates is far superior Airline than this."
Pros: "The food and the entertainment."
Cons: "The information desk had a terrible attitude towards me - the customer, and when I tried to explain to them how disrespectful they were being they continued to disrespect me once again. Also, the worker at the counter was lazy and wouldn't do his required job. Also, the new update towards the tv makes it harder for me to pause the movie I am watching or to finish the movie altogether."
Pros: "Improve your food standard"
Pros: "Crew, service, more seat room."
Cons: "Chaotic boarding but that's it!"
Pros: "Entertainment system , crew"
Cons: "Boarding, as we did it online but waited long queue because online counter was serving all passengers"
Cons: "The food was horrible"
Pros: "Best flight ever"
Pros: "I didn't like anything"
Cons: "My bags didn't make it. I had to sit away from my husband as someone had sat in his seat and clearly wasn't going to move. You now have to pay to get an exit row like budget airlines and I had to go two days without my bag. Total nightmare. Then I couldn't recheck in to change seAts online. Food was disgusting."
Pros: "I have been upgraded to business class which was something cool, doesn't happen a lot. The check in was really fast , and the man giving the boarding passes was really, nice"
Cons: "The crew in the business class, were NOT up to the standards. Whenever I ask about something, they say ... I will come back, Yes they come, but after a while. When serving the food, they gave me the main course, without bringing the salad or appetizer, they didn't ask to bring or not, and I thought that it goes without mentioning to bring them. After finishing the main course, she asked if I finished, so I said yes, she took the whole tray, without asking or bringing the desert, which is again strange. before landing , I wanted to take a medicine, so asked for water, but they said to me we started to descent, and they didn't bring me water except after saying I needed this for taking medicine"
Cons: "Not enough vegetarian food"
Cons: "TERRIBLE time management!! Missed the connecting flight by a few minutes and didn't get a connecting flight for 7 hours thereafter! There was absolutely time for us customers (who landed just 20 min later than expected) to make the connecting flight but we were told it was "too late" to board the other plane. This is extremely inconvenient! I got back to SFO 14 hours after the expected time! WHY don't you guys manage your connections better?? I am never flying Etihad again!"
Cons: "My kids are 14 and 15, traveling as unaccompanied Minors to visit their dad in Kuwait. We chose a Etihad because they would only have to be on 1 plane by themselves. I put them safely on the plane in Chicago, and their Dad flew to Abu Dhabi to meet them when they got off the plane and fly together to Kuwait. On the return flight they fly to Abu Dhabi with no problem. Then, they try to board their connecting flight to Chicago, and they tell my kids they overbooked the flight and they can't travel for at lest 2 more days. If they had to remove someone from the plane, how in the hell do they choose a 14 and 15 year old traveling alone to stay in Abu Dhabi for 2 full days! I'm livid!"
Pros: "Service Seats Flight attendants"
Pros: "The crew was curtious, flight on time, good and clean planes, met all expectations."
Pros: "Crew, comfort and the service"
Cons: "Entertainment. Not enough movies and updated."
Pros: "The trip was late and the transite one left and they refused to componsate me neither by ticket nor money .. It was ahorrible trip i lost 4000 dollars for hotels and other ticket which is toooooo much"
Cons: "Cabin luggage with sensitive/delicate items were forced to be checked in for 2nd leg of the journey. Cabin luggage upon retrieval at destination was scratched/dirty and one glass item inside was broken. Recommend Etihad provides complimentary luggage wrapping to prevent such issues. Additionally, crew was unable to manage noisy kids, and a request for ear plugs was ignored. Recommend Etihad provide affected travelers with ear plugs to manage the noise, and that the crew undergo training to better manage problematic parents w/kids."
Pros: "The staff as helpful and attentive"
Cons: "The crew seemed to be new or something else happened but they ran out of food to serve, so they handed out bread rolls and soft drinks which then sat on our trays for the majority of the flight."
Pros: "I did receive my bag, even I reserve business class."
Cons: "I did receive my bag, even I reserve business class."
Cons: "appriciate co operative atitute of ground staff and crew"
Pros: "I got sick, and I felt faint and and nauseous. When I told a member of the crew, he took me back to the galley and let me lie with oxygen until I felt better. The rest of the crew continued to check on me the rest of the flight."
Pros: "Seat spaces are better than other usual airlines"
Cons: "I have chosen my seat online and they have simply changed it to the seat front of the emergency exit which doesn't lean back. When I asked them why my seat was changed even though I have confirmed the seat again when I had my boarding pass from their office in Dubai, but no one has answered my queries."
Pros: "The staff was extremely polite and accommodating. The entertainment selection was great, with a wide range of movies catering to many cultural backgrounds. Food and snacks were served generously, I never went hungry:)"
Cons: "The seats were tight, as were the aisles. More space on Emirates. Abu Dhabi airport is not an exciting one to have a layover in."
