Pros: "Crew was receptive"
Cons: "Food boarding"

Cons: "Mu luggage got broken"

Pros: "Everything was GREAT!"

Pros: "The hospitable from the crew, the food was great, but i miss my separate connection flight, eventhough i was on time to board, they boarding desk told me my bag is behind, so they could not let me fly. I bought another ticket for my connection flight."
Cons: "Becouse of flight delays, travelers have to make sure they booked their ticket having enough time to thier connection ."

Pros: "On time. No problems"

Cons: "Be aware! "When customers purchase tickets they are paying for transportation for the specific class designated on their ticket and not for specific seat assignments. Seat assignments can never guarantee." This is what they emailed me when they did that to me on my pre-selected & confirmed seats!!"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Service was fantastic as usual for me however it seems women are not treated equally service wise as wife on all 4 legs did not get all the things i was afforded. Lighting, pajamas, bed mattress, meal choice queries etc"
Cons: "The need to pull out boarding passes multiple times-like 6 times- and having to be screened Twice. To even buy some mouthwash i had to show boarding passes. Ridiculous"

Pros: "Great"
Cons: "Too long, lol"

Pros: "Qatae Airways is second to non as always"

Pros: "Everything."

Pros: "Extra leg room, very courteous crew, and pretty decent food. What’s not to like? I have had only very good experiences with Qatar so far."

Pros: "Had always liked the airline and on board crew members"
Cons: "Ground crew members in Doha airport need attitude check. been spotting these too often. On Board crew members are much better."

Pros: "The Crew has been excellent"
Cons: "When I arrived at the Airport in Arusha (JRO) my reserved row 23 aisle seats for the DOH to JFK segment were changed to the (last cabin section row 31); also my aisle seat was changed to a middle seat Food was better from JFK to DOH Entertainment was lacking - movie and TV selection was poor for 20+ hours of flight time"

Pros: "Stellar crew -- super friendly, served water/juices constantly, polite, attentive. To be commended Great choice of movies and entertainment but no wifi???"
Cons: "This was an older 777 -- no wifi -- pretty surprising on such a key flight at DOH-JFK! This is not the airline's fault but I had a crazy lady next to me who was very disoriented, who could not speak English and needed assistance. No one would deal with her! She had a little pouch with her name on it -- like a UM -- so someone knew something was not right when they put her on the flight. I bought drinks inside the terminal for this 14 hour flight but they were all confiscated at the additional security at the gate!! WTF"

Pros: "They do not provide hotel service even in a 11 hour layover saying the ticket is pomotional. If that is the case, why they sell tickets on promotion? Cheap mentality"

Pros: "Need to give people cheap access to wifi"

Pros: "Did not provide hotel even in a 10 hours lay over. The security personel does not know how to behave with passengers."

Pros: "Comfortable, on time"

Cons: "The planes weren't as comfortable as others I've been on like the double deckers of Emirates. Their economy class was NOTHING special. Everyone talks about how superior Qatar is, but I found nothing special about it...the seats, the food, the entertainment were all basic and nothing fancy. The crew, while very sweet, seemed inexperienced and green to me..but they were lovely and that's all that ultimately matters."

Pros: "Water bottle"
Cons: "There was no snack for the people that don't sleep, it's a long flight, I'd suggest instant noodle cups for those or chips or cookies (I know they hand them out maybe once, but maybe have it near the bathroom, so when people are hungry they don't have to bother the crew)."

Pros: "Excellent service from the crew. Flight on time."

Cons: "I had a long trip and as a result I had lost my voice, and the crew had no patient at all. I feel like she just wanted to check the box instead of really making sure I got what I wish for food wise."

Cons: "Some crews are not accommodating."

Pros: "Again, the crew were top notch"
Cons: "Comfort and available entertainment were so-so"

Cons: "They announced everything in English and Arabic and repeated the same announcement multiple times. The entertainment is good but frustrating that it is constantly interrupted with announcement about everything. I have never heard that many on any other plane. The announcement about customs paperwork was long and done 2 times in English and 2 times in Arabic. There safety video is soooo long and again is done in two languages. It was just all too much. Besides that everything was great."

Pros: "Mediocre staff, not very attentive, horrible boarding experience in Doha. Food was inedible, watched a crew member place food she had spilled onto the aisle FLOOR back onto a tray to give to someone as if nothing happened, which prompted me not to anything for an 8 hour trip. DISGUSTING!"
Cons: "I will never purchase a flight with Qatar"

Cons: "I will never ever fly Qatar airlines again. The boarding for this flight in Doha was horrendous. I and a random group of passengers were made to wait with no explanation AFTER our electronics were already cleared to go through yet another security check. They said we were selected for screening but all the other people they took before us were screened the exact same way. It was stressful and traumatizing to stand for 45 minutes with no clear explanation. The crew were clearly new at their job or ill trained. On top of that they consistently ran out of food they were serving and was forced to take the vegetarian option when it's not what I wanted. I could not wait to leave Doha and exit Qatar airways. I hated my experience traveling with Qatar. It was stressful and traumatic. I want a full refund. I will also be advising all my friends to never fly Qatar. It was the WORST!"

Pros: "same"
Cons: "same"

Pros: "The was very hospitalty"
Cons: "Every thing was amazing"

Pros: "Plane was perfect"
Cons: "Transit was just tedious very long line , had to wait for along time. The crew have very strong accent which makes difficult to understand them, but they are very nice and helpful"

Pros: "SPECIALLY THE CREW SERVICE EXCELLENT"

Pros: "Service & cleanliness."
Cons: "Nothing I remember."

Pros: "Considering how long it was, not much could have been better. It wasn't too crowded, so the seat next to me was free, which made getting some sleep easier."

Pros: "Amazing airline with excellent crew and ground staff ever willing to help!"

Pros: "Qatar is not glitzy. Better than that, it was straightforward and relaxed and comfortable. Crew was pleasant and helpful."

Pros: "The crew, they were very pleasant and good about taking care of our needs."
Cons: "The middle console video went out on my husband at the end of the flight, while he was watching a movie. This also happened on the earlier flight from Singapore to Doha."

Pros: "everything!"

Cons: "is it true that Qatar treats the passengers coming to US differently than the passengers going out of US. I noticed that the crew was giving menu cards for dinner when coming back to US. Food quality is very ad, quantity is small also. same story with snacks. they don't offer enough food overall. The crew should be trained better for int'l passengers."

Pros: "I was incredibly impressed with the on board crew. They were kind, efficient, courteous, thoughtful, and charismatic. They made the LONG flight enjoyable and extra comfortable. :)"

Cons: "They supposed to provide Wheel chair for my elderly mother in Law who had a foot fracture, was very hard /painful to walk. I confirmed the wheelchair option well advance before her travel date in Qatar Airways Web site. I got the confirmation also in the Qatar Airways Web site. I usually fly with my family as I have a big family with couple of children and elderly. I will never fly Qatar again, this was the 1st and the last fly with Qatar airways."

Cons: "No entertainment service from Doha to New York"

Pros: "Boarding on time. Crew was very nice except food option."

Pros: "first time on Emirates and its just so much better than anything else under all points of view"
Cons: "vegetarian options"

Cons: "The boarding process at Addis Ababa airport was late, slow and very disorganized. Once on the plane, it was very chaotic as passengers did not wait for people to put bags in the overhead bin without passing by, and not all overhead bins were open for loading. Please control this process better."

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "So many people were ill near me and the 14 hours of journey was crazy with such curcumstances around you.Those people should not have allowed to board"

Pros: "All good."
Cons: "None"

Cons: "Snub crews"

Pros: "Thanks to the nice lady who gave up an Aisle seat so I could sit next to my daughter."
Cons: "Other people's kids are wiggly and annoying, and there were many! Not a seat empty in the huge plane. PThe staff did as best they could under the circumstances. But 17 hours of crowds are hard to take. Very rough landing, which I wouldn't mention except that I've had several on Emirates lately."

Cons: "Emirates should have contacted me about my missing bag which they didn't contact me yet. Not sure where my bag is as of now"

Pros: "The movie selections, and really nice lighting on board."

Pros: "Good but not great."

Pros: "The AirBus A380 plane is amazing! Really great movie options too - almost too much choice."
Cons: "They randomly chose us to conduct a carryon bag search, which is fine. But they also randomly chose 100 other passengers and there wasn't enough information or staff to do this random check efficiently. Hence, we were more than an hour delayed."

Pros: "Everything was on point."

Pros: "they serve and ask what it needs to like with smile; thanks for all of anyways."

Pros: "adequate leg space,to stretch and walk around"

Pros: "Good staff"

Pros: "Same comments as above."

Cons: "Only problem was lots of children running around, screaming, and generally causing commotion. Some Parents did not attempt to calm their children. Might be worth seating families with young children together so they don't disturb older travelers to"

Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "Seat comfort Free booze"
Cons: "The fat guy farting in front of me"

Cons: "I was treated differently, because, I bought my ticket from Kayak and not directly from Emirates."

More then 3 hours delay with 500 people have lots of questions. Need to answer with lot of patients. The manger behavior was not appropriate with one lady with the kids."

Pros: "everything was perfect"

Pros: "(see above)"
Cons: "(see above)"

Cons: "None"

Cons: "na"

Pros: "never turkish airlines ever again!"
Cons: "never turkish airlines ever again!"

Cons: "The airport staff in Istanbul was horrible. Wouldn't help find the gate until the last second. After arriving in JFK. We're stuck on plane on tarmac for 3.5 hours "waiting for a gate" unacceptable."

Pros: "I am not blaming the airline at all for these inconveniences."
Cons: "NOTE: THIS IS NOT A CRITIC OF THE AIRLINE Having personally experienced the latest in the consequences of travel related rules mandated by US public officials, I am yet again left wondering if they, and their families, go through these rules that they impose on the general public. Or if they just breeze into their private airport wings and planes. I doubt they take off shoes, belts, and such, or go through irradiated machines. But going through about 3 extra layers of security while transiting is a bit much. Not to mention the extra hours spent relinquishing and reclaiming laptops etc. Frankly, non of these acts makes anything safer. It is akin to the permanently parked police vehicle on the Brooklyn Bridge in NYC since 9-11. What is that supposed to deter?"

Pros: "Interior of the plane"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "It wasn't communicated beforehand to check in our baggage to electronics."

Pros: "Attentiveness of staff."
Cons: "The check-in was quite hectic."

Pros: "Almost everything from boarding till landing."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that people need to wait in the bus shuttle too long. It's just better to let people wait at the gate and ride them to the plane when it's 100% ready."

Cons: "Luggage was held back in Istanbul. It was broken into and never made it to NYC. They shipped to Texas at which point it had been opened and rifled through. Unprofessional."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "All"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Wonderful experience"

Pros: "x"
Cons: "x"

Cons: "Lost my bag. Again no gate number from Instambul to NY."

Pros: "There were a lot of very good experiences with Turkish Air. I was pleasantly surprised how friendly and courteous the staff was. Overall, the trip was a pleasure. I would fly with Turkish Air again."

Cons: "Very good"

Cons: "According to the menu we were supposed to have a choice of chicken or eggplants. When it was my turn - it turned out that there was no chicken left. Fine. Eggplants with some kind of lasagna. This lasagna was just old! Old and dry. And cold. It was definitely not fresh. I asked to warm it up. Got another one. Which was not better actually. That was really annoying. Only after one more complaint I was offered some kosher (and now really good) meal instead."

Pros: "Excellent"
Cons: "Everything good"

Cons: "Very very cramped"

Cons: "Need more vegetarian options"

Pros: "All amazing"

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "My new iphone was stolen off the plane. I have complained to the turkish airline people. They tell me fill out feed back forms. I did no response yet. I want to be compensated for my stolen phone"

Pros: "My mother's luggage was lost and arrived to us ripped the next day and i emailed them yet no compensation has been made and no one has replied to the email."

Cons: "Late baggage"

Pros: "I have been flying with Turkish Airline for over 24 years. And they are the best ever. If they have flights to my destination I sure fly with them."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "evrting"

Pros: "US government sends out travel advisories in timely fashion"
Cons: "Turkish airlines is overwhelmed with schedule changes. They behave in a manner not respecting the gravity of the situation and the need for people to get home. For example, they rescheduled our flights but did not confirm or ticket our flights. They should use all resources to get us home but won't let us fly on Star Alliance code share flights."

Pros: "Good in general"
Cons: "Delayed flights"

Pros: "I like every thing"

Pros: "Great staff"
Cons: "Departed late, landed late, baggage claim took over an hour and half"

Pros: "All was ok"

Pros: "Everything is high quality but the airplane interior. It's in need of some updating."
Cons: "See above"

Pros: "see above"
Cons: "See above"

Cons: "Neverrrrr againnnnn!!!!!!!with Turkish airlines"

Pros: "Meals, pillows and blankets, and the pouches with the slippers, toothpaste, etc."

Pros: "Priority lounge access made 12 hour layover less unbearable."
Cons: "Missing tray table. Was allowed to keep my bag for takeoff but not for landing. Defective headphones (three pairs). Long waits for lavatories. Animals in main cabin. No ability to turn off main cabin screen while landing. Neighbor vomited due to roughness of landing. And the 12 hour layover (CDG-IST-JFK) was pretty harsh, though not as bad as 16 in the other direction."

Cons: "Similar issues as described above"

Cons: "The airport"

Pros: "The planes were well maintained. Good entertain emend choices. Food was decent too"

Cons: "Asked for ONE piece of bread, and such a big company. Didn’t have ONE piece of bread to provide. Shame. But not surprised, considering the focus they had with onboard shopping, cut coat, and generate revenue very oriented."

Pros: "The food/drinks"
Cons: "Delay"

Pros: "It was cancelled and scheduled next day"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Arrival on time ."
Cons: "Changing birding multiple times."

Cons: "See above. What a disaster!"

Pros: "Attentive and friendly staff, great food and plenty of drinks!!!"

Cons: "The airport pretty much shut down for awhile so some flights were canceled. Due to the number of people attempting to check in and go through security, I missed my plane and was rebooked in an economy seat. These glitches occur but one would expect Lufthansa to have had a plan to deliver clear directions."

Cons: "See above. Going both ways..."

Pros: "Relaxed trip. We were well cared for. Again very good staff"

Pros: "Family check-in in Frankfurt is superb. Economy Plus was a really great experience!"
Cons: "The fact that I can't use my own headphones and I'm forced to use the cheap airline-provided ones (with the dual plugs). Single biggest reason to not fly Lufthansa, because I can't enjoy the movies!"

Pros: "Still use silverware and provide blankets, pillows, headphones, nice clean plane"
Cons: "The tv monitor had very limited options and froze about every 5 minutes. The screen was either very unresponsive or would freeze"

Pros: "Unlike the rest of the plane, row 34 is big enough to fit human beings, so this flight was great. Crew are nice."
Cons: "Every single seat in coach except row 34 or 27"

Cons: "Pretty good. Great crew."

Pros: "Everything in order and on time."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised to be offered an after dinner brandy, or a Bailey's. O"
Cons: "On both flights. The ear phone did not work correctly. Minor issue."

Pros: "WiFi access"

Pros: "Food on flight lags a bit behind other major airlines. Crew very nice and helpful though."
Cons: "Boarding process at Tegel is archaic and inefficient. Gate area too small and without access to shops/restaurants/etc."

Pros: "Multiple bathrooms located downstairs. Modern new plane"
Cons: "Movies were old. No real new releases. Food was terrible"

Pros: "Crew !!!"
Cons: "Very long distance to gate Z 69 with no time to cost my knee pain !!!"

Pros: "Crew was excellent, very courteous and helpful."
Cons: "Food options were limited."

Cons: "Tv didn't work most of time. Food was terrible."

Pros: "Good overall experience"

Pros: "I like that the flight crew did the best they could to make sure my husband and I were sitting together with one child."
Cons: "I did like that my whole family including two children 2 ad 6 were sitting all separately all over the plane. Children 12 and under should not be seated separately. And that should be the job during the check in. Not during birding."

Cons: "crew was not friendly"

Pros: "I was able to squeeze back into Comfort Economy and make my destination, after a messed up miles upgrade - have to be grateful for the small things, right?"
Cons: "I was actually upgraded to Business Class through a LH miles award, however, that upgrade was not honored, despite the fact that I had a confirmation email from them. I had to first get to Frankfurt to even negotiate this problem. At the departure point, LH was unable to furnish me a boarding pass to my NY flight. After racing though the huge airport at max speed to make this connection, I was treated rudely at the gate in Frankfurt by LH short tempered ground staff, to the point of even being accused of being the source of the problem and being late for boarding (when I was only accorded an hour connection through this booking, and raised this concern with LH prior). Lastly, the ground crew took away my connecting flight boarding pass and nearly forgot to give me back my luggage tag. The flight crew was Ok, but just did a bare minimum to keep up with the packed and overbooked flight. To top of the joy, I got food poisoning after landing in NYC - not all food they serve was in sealed containers, and it must have been enough to cause a day of misery that followed my arrival - I can assure you that the late time and taxing and docking delays in NYC took away any opportunity to have a normal dinner, and LH food was all I had all day... Not the usual LH experience, but I may give them a break for the next few trips."

Pros: "Great flying on an A380"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit disorganized."

Cons: "There were no options for food, I was just told that there was only pasta left while the passenger next to me ate chicken. This was totally unacceptable. I only hope that this was my last trip with Lufthansa."

Pros: "Professional, friendly, helpful staff in a new, quiet plane (A380-800). Smooth landing. Easy disembarkment despite approximately 500 passengers from a large aircraft."
Cons: "Unreliable domestic Lufthansa flights (in Germany) connected to this international one, and the departure time history for this LH400 proved typical for this flight, which ultimately left nearly 2 hours late despite good local weather. An announcement cited technical difficulties with the originally scheduled plane. Several small groups we recognized from embarkation on this LH400 flight filed lost luggage claims, as we did. Uncharacteristically bad planning by LH on food choices left our rows near the front of Economy without a choice of meals: only pasta, tasty though it was, was available. The chicken option was gone. The flight status video program function did not work for anybody near us despite three equipment restarts by the crew."

Pros: "The chicken, potatos and spinach dish was the best. I like that they have you a pillow, cover, and headphones."
Cons: "At first the movies worked then they did a reset and my audio stopped working and they did another reset when I let an attendant know about it and it still didn't work. They never came back for me to let them know about the problem."

Pros: "They waited for those who were running late due to a previous flight delay. The crew was super friendly and there was great movie suggestions."
Cons: "There was a lot of turbulance which made a lot of the passengers sick. I think also that they collected the headphones too early like 45 mins/1 hour too early before landing. Also landing felt like it was the longest landing in my life."

Pros: "Dissatisfied!!!"
Cons: "See comments above."

Pros: "I think everything was first class, specially the CREW."

Cons: "staying 11h with no assistant"

Pros: "The whole experience was GREAT!"

Pros: "The seat was very comfortable"

Cons: "They change the gate for transfer last minute"

Cons: "Boarding was a little chaotic. Everyone kind of ran up."

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "none"

Pros: "Crew was helpful. Liked the ice cream bars"
Cons: "Repetitive food choices. Same movies as last month so if you take long trips,you run out of options. I spent 28 hours on flights in Nov and Dec"

Pros: "I loved everything."

Pros: "Pleasantly greeted"
Cons: "Lack of space makes flying pure torture. When will airrlines get it regarding customer needs?! Crew not accessible in between serving times"

Pros: "the staff is top notch"

Pros: "great 747-8 bird, modern, quiet and comfortable"
Cons: "same JFK with always delayed unboarding, wait for the gate and luggage, long lines to everything"

Pros: "Free upgrade to business class!"

Pros: "The crew was very professional and kind."
Cons: "The layover in Frankfurt was too short (45 min) and the delay of the flight Milan- Frankfurt did not help; I had to run to catch my flight to NY. And in addition, my baggage went lost"

Pros: "The flight crew was wonderful! Friendly and really attentive the whole trip!"

Pros: "They had lots of movies and TV options to choose from."
Cons: "The vegetarian option was very poor. Frankly a pizza snack in place of supper is not what I expect on a cross-Atlantic flight."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Stop feeding us bread"

Pros: "Seat was weary at 52H. Although there were other empty and more comfortable seats, the crew didn't let me have one."
Cons: "Food could have been of fish kind variety and hot drinks weren't available. No hot drinks, neither coffee, nor tea."

Pros: "Amazing plane"

Pros: "I liked the new airplane. Compared to my jfk-cai flight the plane was spotless and everything worked. I didn’t feel like I was on a flying greyhound bus. The crew kept the bathrooms cleaner which was great."
Cons: "I was very disappointed that I couldn’t bring water through the gate security in Cairo to jfk. There was nowhere to purchase water after the gate so I felt dehydrated and inconvenienced by having to ask for water so many times."

Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "Terrible business class."

Pros: "every thing"

Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Rapidity for delivering the luggage"

Pros: "Yes"

Cons: "If flying on time its always late even more than one hour"

Pros: "Direct flight, punctual time. Crew is friendly"
Cons: "several toilets were out of order (were marked occupied instead of out of order so I was waiting in vain until a passenger informed me it was not working not occupied). food, looked like they were trying to conserve on passengers desserts.. microscopic (toy size) containers for coffee n tea??!"

Pros: "I didn’t like anything about this airline !! the staff looks miserable I was delayed on all three of my flights! also my luggage was broken by egypt air baggage department"
Cons: "EVERYTHING ! this was the worst airline I have ever flow !"

Pros: "I liked the space you have on the seats the leg room is very good because I am a tall person with some airlines it’s very uncomfortable for me thanks."
Cons: "Leg room, food, service from the cabin crew is fantastic just to say a few words. Fli"

Cons: "That I could check in online instead of the airport, to get to pick the seat I want, I was placed in an isle seat 2 rows before the end of the plane, right behind me the we only 2 seats row, and almost every single one that went to use the restroom had to bump into my chair in their way back"

Cons: "4 bags, agent charged me $100 for 12 # excess wt will no not allow me to repack to the lighter “other 3 bags 18 pounds light, total. I think a refund is in order."

Pros: "Fully flat seats, friendly crew, good food. Excellent price"
Cons: "Dated slightly worn seats"

Pros: "Good price. Direct flight. Decent food."
Cons: "Offer more frequent complimentary drinks. Staff talking too loudly at back of plane while passengers trying to sleep."

Pros: "Big plane, multiple boarding points. Food did its job & helped with the long flight. Movies weren't expansive, but good choices to kill the time."
Cons: "The crew did not have the key to unlock to doors leading to the plane, which forced everyone to wait 30 mins standing in line. It was quite silly! It delayed our flight about 30-45 minutes - not much, but really painful when the flight is almost 12 hours. The crew didn't tell us what was happening either, but it was pretty obvious."

Pros: "Direct flight, nice crew and professional pilot, didn’t feel the plane touching the ground while landing"
Cons: "Definitely not cheap flight ;) Food is no good , bathrooms were not clean and flight crew refused to clean it !!!"

Pros: "Flights were on time and boarding was orderly"
Cons: "Vegetarian food was poor. It was just boiled vegetables. Even the bread that was given to others was not there. They treated Vegetarian food as Vegan food (although it was specified as vegetarian), so there was no butter, no yogurt and nothing but boiled vegetables and fruit salad. Hard to sustain oneself with that on a 12 hour flight! I asked the flight attendant for yogurt who just ignored my request."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Cheap flight. Boarding was quick and thats about the only thing good."
Cons: "No Wifi, no alcohol, and food was terrible."

Pros: "every thing thank you"

Pros: "Excellent experience overall, I would definitely fly again with Egypt Air."
Cons: "Only small thing was, I have seen better as far as in flight entertainment. The touchscreen was not responsive and selection not great. I brought my own on a tablet so it wasn't a big deal for me."

Pros: "Upgraded to business class at the ticket counter for a very reasonable price- comfort and ease."

Pros: "Good meals and equent tea, coffee and water in cups available. Headphones provided for entertainment."
Cons: "More garbage pickup needed- computer screens were dirty from previous flight use"

Pros: "seats were little comfy handrest where not even. choice of movies were basic. clean not a bad flight. food was decent."

Cons: "Head Hosts are aggressive but not so much"

Pros: "The crew was great. Very helpful and friendly."

Cons: "The pilot was excellent in take off and landing. He got us through some turbulence in a smooth excellent way"

Pros: "Great professional and fast"
Cons: "Couldnt take my camera in the hand bag which is unreasonable."

Pros: "Cheap air fare, i likeed all the services include an easy take off, landing on time, amazing food and crew were kind and comforting all customers on board."
Cons: "Cheap air fare, i likeed all the services include an easy take off, landing on time, amazing food and crew were kind and comforting all customers on board."

Pros: "Time..... everything was on time no late ..flight take off on time with good security Processing"
Cons: "Nothing really"

Pros: "I liked everything about the experience on the actual flight from Cairo to New York. Staff was great, food was great (two meals), drink options were great from juices, sodas, water, tea, coffee all great. the entertainment was awesome with so many movie/tv show options. and you can always get up and ask for a beverage if you were still thirsty, and plenty of toilets on the plane so rarely a line greater than 1 person."
Cons: "They seemed to run out of chicken as the dinner meal, when they got to my the flight to Cairo from NY they also ran out of chicken, the person next to me got the last one, the same thing happened to me on the way to NY, the person next to me got the last chicken, i was kind of upset but the other option of beef was still good."

Pros: "Nothing was good. Everything was horrible."
Cons: "Flight attendants are rude and nasty. They take forever to accommodate you. When you press the flight attendant button to be taken care of. They don't care at all. If you ask for help you're left unhelped."

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Babies crying in nearly every row. No ear plugs provided. Flight attendants not attentive at all. Attitudes for staff left and right. It was a horrible flight. Check in was a headache as well."

Pros: "They have some interesting old films like Charlie Chaplin in their silver screen entertainment choices. Accommodating flight attendants."
Cons: "There did not seem to be any air vents to adjust for cooling down when I felt hot."

Pros: "Staff was attentive and welcoming"

Pros: "The Crew was excellent and accommodating."
Cons: "Long flight ... could not sleep... Not your fault :) I'm very tall so the comfort for me was not as good as it could have been due to limited leg room. Please try to keep us in mind and /or try to get tall folks leg room seats. Thanks.. Happy security was good, but it was a bit slow."

Cons: "i need a refund. our flight back to NYC from dubai was rescheduled with significant delays such that it would affect our jobs. We decided to book a return flight via qatar and we need a refund for this booking"

Cons: "Although the flight attendants were nice, I felt they should have gone through the cabin more often offering water or other beverages since this was such a long flight,"

Pros: "The business class seat was very comfortable."
