Good service

Cons: "I loved it"
Pros: "Kind and courteous staff"
Cons: "A family with 2 kids making noisy and crying nonstop during the flight the father was playing Japanese video games with headphones on and very careless but once in a wile started yelling at Kiks because they distracted him from his entertainment. Grandma next to them was careless too,mother left the kids to father and was sitting 2 rows in the back and they never came at least to try to make them quiet even when the kids started to kik everywhere licluding the food tray and almost breaks it. Unfortunately the staff never came and try to talk to them about this issue Most of the people including several senior citizens looked angry and frustrated."
Pros: "Staff are the best of all airlines I have been in."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "The fact that my father was diagnosed with Cancer and they wouldn’t refund our 1300.00 for round trip tickets to the Philippines which is our vacation home. The airline required documentation from my fathers doc which I provided. He was not going anywhere for at least a year (radiation and chemo) and the denied even credit.I was able to get my parents tickets refunded by a different airline. NEVER Again. my father passed 8/12/2018. Our trip was scheduled for 9/13/2018. Very disappointing.see"
Pros: "I have flied to and from Japan many times with many different airlines. This flight was my favorite."

Pros: "Very family friendly. Good entertainment system."
Pros: "Crew members on board were very attentive and offered the best service in the most polite manner. Food was great. Great options and portion for lunch. Well respected brand for ice cream was served as dessert. A wide variety of overnight snack was provided for passenger's own selection. Breakfast was great with variety of food on the tray. Personal screen was modern and provided a great variety to keep me entertain during the very long flight. Seats are unexpectedly big and very comfortable together with functional well designed pockets beside the screen, where I could put my personal items. New and clean cabin."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "What did you dislike? I purchased our tickets back in November selecting which seats we wanted. When we arrived February 16th they stated we were "standby" after a debated discussion they found us some seats at the very back of the plane (not our selected seats). On our flight back they had us, my husband and I seating in separate sections on the plane (again not our selected seats) 6 rows away from each other. I will NOT recommend using Kayak in the future. Leslie Dickey"
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Flight was long. Didn’t get my seat preference"
Pros: "I would recommend to everyone JAL"
Pros: "JAL is great!"
Cons: "Cold food"
Pros: "This was my first time to travel with JAL. They take excellent care of all of their passengers. The flights did not seem to be as long as they were. I was very comfortable."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Courteous and professional flight attendants"
Cons: "Long gap between meals. At least they could have provided juice or snacks in between meals"
Pros: "It was short flight.. I slept good through."
Pros: "Super cheap roundtrip flight. Reliable airline. Flight even came with a meal both ways. Kind staff. Good service."
Pros: "Bought my ticket in June, when I could access the AA site for my seat selection, it wanted $18 to $35 to make the seat selection. We chose to get the assignment at the airport, but could only get it at tge gate. Made me feel like I was flying standby!"
Cons: "I reserved Korean air but it was Japan air line. I was really difficult to web-check in to find my reservaiton."
Pros: "I love flying jal"
Cons: "It's not so much the flight as it was the plane, the 787 seats recline too much for the limited legroom you get so if the person I front of you reclines all the way you will ride with there seat in your knees the whole way"
Pros: "Excellent service. Flight attendants are consistantly helpful and friendly."
Pros: "The crews were polite and reliable. No bossy or mean like other airlines. they moved prompt, no running or fast walk on aisles, so that passengers can ask things easily. Food was much better comparing with any other companies. The boarding time was delayed one hour, however we landed japan 2, 3 mins later than the estimated arrival time. Landing technique was beautiful. American, United, ANA which I flew caused me have a deep Earache. I didn't get any pain from this flight. I am already scared of returning flight with American airplines."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "The food is very delicious. I can choose a lot of great movies. The space is also big to move."
Pros: "The flight's timing and airports are perfect for a short weekend getaway between Seoul and Tokyo. JAL service is also perfect!"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Not anyone fault but I wish seating was better fitted in economy for taller people"
Pros: "Asian vegetarian meal"
Cons: "limited rest room facilities"
Pros: "The hospitality of the crew"
Pros: "The airplane and all"
Cons: "A little bit in the sakura lounge"
Pros: "Seat was very comfortable and had many games and movies to keep me preoccupied during the flight."
Cons: "I didn't like that the crew at check-in and the crew on the plane told me different things. The crew at check-in told me I could keep my purse with me, and the crew on the airline told me I had to put it overhead. Please be consistent! Flying is very stressful for me, and I want the staff to make it as stress-free as possible. As for boarding, I wasn't allowed into the gate until an hour before. What really bothered me was that they had already let some people into the gate and shut some other people out. Either let people in or don't. Don't follow the rules halfway because then they won't mean anything. I was very shocked by this and have never experienced this at any airline before. All I wanted to do was sit down and relax at the gate before boarding. If this ever happened to me again, I would not fly with the same airlines. To think that this was a JAL flight, with such a high reputation of customer service, makes me even more wary of booking a flight with JAL. I didn't appreciate being treated that way, and I will not tolerate it if it happens again."
Pros: "Excellent custumer service including cabin attendants' attentiveness and pilot's warnings of turbulence. Great in-flight entertainment. I liked the special touches such as the small snack and water bar available throughout the flight, and the breakfast Kumamon special. Clean bathrooms are very very appreciated."
Cons: "The only bad experience was when we were boarding, and I asked whether I could take a newspaper and the business class flight attendant snidely said that it was only for business class. I understand the comment, but her expression and tone were unnecessary."
Pros: "Plenty of leg room, which as a tall person I truly appreciate. They give you slippers, blanket, pillow on every (international?) flight. I flew Korea to Japan and Japan to Hawaii. Got free meals on all flights, even my short two hr flight between Korea and Japan. Free booze too! Super nice check in agent as well."
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "Economy seats were extremely comfortable and roomy. What a difference that makes."
Cons: "Movies available tended to be either action/terror/suspense, or old movies. Very few real dramas."
Pros: "Efficient boarding process. Great god and cabin service. On time."
Cons: "Turbulent flight and the crew was not completely reassuring"
Pros: "Service was excellent."
Cons: "Seat felt stiff but felt well rested after flight"
Pros: "Very clean. They check the bathroom pretty often un-like AA. Good food."
Cons: "I always prefer this airlines."
Cons: "The DC China Embassy web site clearly states that a valid APEC Business Card can be used in lieu of a Chinese visa. In spite of this I was denied boarding by JAL. It turns out the system is not fully in place, and eventually I was issued a 10 year multiple entry visa by way of apology. JAL did not waive cancellation fee, and I suffered considerable economic damages."
Pros: "Good flight! Confirtable seats, polite crew."
Pros: "everything is much better, everything! including how boarding and de-planing is more orderly than most other flights."

it would have been great to be disembarked from an Air Bridge instead of being bussed around the airport after a 16 hour Flight.

unfortunately we were unable to travel at this time due to the ongoing Covid situation in Sri Lanka. we hope to go instead in March 2022.

Lost my luggage.

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "On time performance."
Pros: "Amazing crew, super hospitality, conformable sit"

Cons: "My flight time was changed but I didn’t receive any email regarding the change"
Pros: "I understand why this airline is ranked very high. The food was very good, the seats have more legroom even in coach and the movie selection was good."

Pros: "The crew is very friendly and helpfu; the space between seats is noticeably larger than usual"
Pros: "The crew was really sweet and making sure passengers were comfortable."
Pros: "Crew was nice. Seat was broken for recliner."

Pros: "The crew was amazing."
Cons: "The customer service from Qatar Airways. No one communicates and it was very frustrating to deal with."
Cons: "Seats for its along way"
Pros: "Crew was amazing and food was Delicious as compare to other airlines."

Cons: "Food"

Cons: "Middle seat"
Pros: "The friendly and helpful service."
Cons: "There was a long line by my seat to use the restrooms."
Pros: "So many movies to spend flight time with great crew"
Cons: "There are couple things. First of all, it was cold almost for everyone: everyone used a blanket, and some people asked for a second blanket. Secondly, I think that if this airline became the best airline in 2017, staff should care about their passengers’ stuff more than they do, so backpacks or suitcases don't lose parts or get crushed during flights. When I got my backpack back, I thought that someone had used it to play football. My backpack had lost some parts, and some pieces of it were torn!"
Cons: "It was too cold in the plane."
Pros: "Staff was excellent"
Cons: "Again had to wait for the flight for 8 hrs due to change in flight time with no explanation"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Cabin crew service is excellent. Food is very nice. Safe travel."
Cons: "Little bit congested."
Pros: "Great crew, as usual."
Cons: "Ugh, The seat in front of me had some box taking up 1/4 of my leg-room. I get that the box probably contains some crucial equipment, but can you at least round the edges so I can lay my leg against it without cutting off my circulation to my foot? Other than that, typical Qatar luxury (as much as you're gonna find in coach)."
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Small single aisle plane No wifi, no power ports, no individual screens Qatar is great about serving water but not other drinks -- I bought drinks inside security but there was another round of security at the gate -- they confiscated all of the drinks I bought"
Pros: "very courteous flight crew"
Cons: "Thanks"
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to get off the plane and then put back on the plane. That was not noted when buying the ticket. That is important information."

Cons: "Quality of food"
Cons: "both flights had 2 hours delay... also lugages cames with next flight."
Pros: "The staff are outstanding! Friendly, helpful and accommodating."

Pros: "on my flight from bkk to Doha all the flight attendants were very helpful. One in particular with the name Mary Jane, was very helpful and she stood out among the rest. Thank you for your kindness and help when I couldn't eat some of the foods on board. Whom can I write an email to so that I can be sure that she gets noticed for her work? Thank you"
Pros: "The business cabin and the customer service was superb."
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Soft blankets, seats were okay, crew was wonderful."
Cons: "No wifi even though kayak advertised the flight as having it. Bathrooms were full of trash and quite dirty by the end of the flight."
Pros: "Qatar has an amazing service. The staff is impecable, the food is great, they take care of each detail. Business class is superb. They make the bed, give you a complimentary pitada and moisture lotion. Can't be better than that."
Cons: "I was charged a insanly high fee for my luggage that was almost twice the price of my original flight ticket purchase. the agent offered no resolution for the confusion in their web descriptions for baggage allowance. This must happen to customers frequently because the wording is not clear. i was very upset and due to this i will NOT fly this airline again. i was charged the price of a first call flight in total for economy service. NOT GOOD"
Cons: "Engine problem. Everybody off of aircraft after sitting in it 3 hours!. No airline representitives inside airport to help. Slept in airport with various ppl from qatar popping up and giving untrue information"
Pros: "Great airline with spanking new plans and top of the line service"
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "Staff was excellent"
Cons: "More selection or choices like international food not like focus on Indian food"

Pros: "Left on time. Great pilot and crew - very concerned about our welfare. Quick flight. Nice aircraft."
Pros: "Good service and flight."
Cons: "Movies are the same since last six months. Business class place to keep the feet is too narrow when its flat bed. No space."
Pros: "Food is awesome and plentiful. Crew is great. Plentiful entertainment options."
Cons: "The economy seats are just not comfortable. The entertainment system is glitchy"
Cons: "Again the menu wasnt good. Also as the plane was smaller the economy was a little claustrophobic"

Very nice staff

Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Good for now"
Pros: "There was an amazing variety of tv shows and movies. That is essential for long flights like ours was."
Cons: "For long haul flights, I am used to being offered a pillow/blanket, even when sitting in economy."
Cons: "The flight was delayed because one or more of the crew were late. I would suggest that when you board a large flight, start from the rear of the plane, not the front. Having to go past everyone to get to your seat is time consuming and somewhat stressful. The food was super gross. The so called beef bulgogi was not appetizing at all. For breakfast, the food was disgusting."
Cons: "Better space. Better service. Terrible directions"
Pros: "The best"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Korean air is a step above the rest. Best airline in the business"
Cons: "No WiFi on the flight, but there is so much media offered you really forget"
Pros: "Crew was awesome, super friendly and helpful. Even the korean food options tasted delicious."
Cons: "Not plus size friendly. The bathroom is too small for a plus size person to be able to use and for a 14 hour flight I think that’s important. Also if you’re plus size and the person in front of you reclines, it’s impossible to pull down your tray fully."
Pros: "Good crew, on time flight and departure."
Cons: "Had to check my bag yet others brought on two bin sized pieces. Had to get seat assignment at the gate and rep was rather abrupt with instructions. Smell of fuel in the cabin. In last row which was uncomfortable"
Pros: "The cabin was to warm"
Cons: "The cabin was to warm"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. I've got the exit seat: very comfortable."
Cons: "Entertainment choice could improve, very few choices."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Thermostat broke, wi fi didn’t work. Temp 60 degrees entire trip. Sucked"
Pros: "compared with other airlines they were just OK"
Cons: "everything"
Pros: "Seat was great, complimentary snacks and alcoholic beverage"
Cons: "Comfort plus seats on final leg did not appear to be different than main cabin"
Pros: "staff was friendly and very attentive to my needs."
Cons: "More comfortable seats!!!"
Pros: "The crew did their job. Some attendants were very kind, helpful."
Cons: "Food could be better. Old aircraft, old style seats. Other airlines have improved this very, very much. Delta is lagging behind."
Pros: "Crew was fine - not their fault that DELTA changed my flight at the last minutes with terrible options on rescheduling my flight!"
Cons: "Yes...not change my flight at the last minute and causing me to miss my connecting flight. Then making me reschedule my flight with only options that I now have (2) layover and then arrive in Korea another day later, that then caused me to miss my college orientation day!"
Cons: "All was good"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Business aisles are one way only, very impractical. Bathrooms are tiny unlike 777 and the seats are not good, i dislike the narrow feel of the feet well and there is noooo storage for shoes or amything else..what fail. And the door thing is a joke. I will make zero effort to fly this equipment...777 is the best after loosing the 747."
Pros: "The food was amazing. The entertainment system was fantastic. The crew was lovely."
Cons: "The small bathrooms"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival"
Cons: "Paying for seats"
Pros: "Great staff and they worked hard to make the flight comfortable."
Cons: "The seats are small and the plane feels like a Sardine can."
Cons: "Sat on the tarmac for 20 Minutes, after taking off late. Arrived to my connecting gate 10 Minutes prior to scheduled departure with no delta attendants in sight and watched my plane sit at the gate and pull away with no way to get on board. Now I’m waiting unnecessarily for 4 hours on another flight."
Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "Could not get entertainment interface with my tablet to work, especially since I paid extra to do so. Could not access live TV on my seat/chair screen."
Cons: "Flight took off three hours late. After we boarded the plane, we had to sit on the plane for over three hours before we finally took off. When you’re on a flight that’s already 15 hours long, the last thing you want to do is sit on the plane for an extra three hours for nothing."
Pros: "-Timeliness -Friendly staff especially considering the ill reputation of Delta flight attendants in domestic flights within the USA."
Cons: "-Boarding by zone wasn't carried out. Everybody, other than first/business class, stood in one long line for over an hour. -Quality of food should be improved. Please stop serving starchy wraps. And let the hot tea be hot, not lukewarm. - Please no popsicles for adult passengers. Please serve ice cream in cups."
Cons: "Was not allowed to check in even tho flight was delayed. Horrible!"
Pros: "How friendly and easy it was to board. The pilots were very friendly and even gave my daughter wings. The crew made us very welcomed and put our booster in the closet till we landed."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "On my trip from Atlanta to Mexico City it was overbooked, they booked me on a different plane, which was 2 hrs delayed...which caused me to missed the flight from Mexico City to leon."
Cons: "Late with no information"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The KLM ground staff were extremely helpful and reassuring when there was confusion with my ticket."
Cons: "I booked KLM flights (Cork - Tampa return) but the planes were in fact Aer Lingus and Delta. So I have no idea what KLM is like. When I checked in at Cork the ground staff could only give me a boarding card for the first flight. For the second one she said I would have to go to the Delta counter in Amsterdam. It was difficult to find a counter there or staff as check-in was all by computer. The computer kept saying 'error' when I put in my code. I eventually was directed to a KLM desk (nicely hidden). I was told that my seat no longer existed. At this point the flight was ready to board. Thankfully the KLM ground staff were extremely helpful and reassuring and upgraded my ticket to economy comfort. On the way back, I could only get a boarding card for my first flight. The second two I had to collect at the boarding gate of the second flight."
Pros: "Everything was very standard, good crew, good gate agents, smooth flight."
Cons: "I purchase tickets using credit card points and was not allowed to have seat assignments until 24 hours before the flight. This is NOT going to work for me in the future"
Pros: "On time. Clean."
Pros: "Delta agents rerouted me in face of weather problems in Southeast so as to allow me to make my LAX to Sydney flight. Well done."
Cons: "Not enough leg room in Economy. I lucked out on transpacific leg with an exit row seat, everything else tight. Movie choices kinda limited and very US."
Pros: "Everything went well...on time, quick boarding and free gate check of bag."
Pros: "The crew was very accommodating and the newer plane was very very nice!"
Cons: "no complaints"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable flight. Seats are to close to each other"
Pros: "The food on the flight from Venice to Atlanta was excellent! And the flight attendants was really friendly and helpful. My movie screen froze up and our attendant rebooted it right away."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Delta crew are lazy...they wont help u out to store ur bags."
Pros: "Some of the ground staff was trying to be helpful."
Cons: "That we had to sleep like homeless people on the floor of JFK airport as the airline was not able to provide for a crew and therefore cancelled the flight. The airline cancelled the flight at 1.30 in the morning so no one was able to get a stay in a hotel not did the airline take any action towards helping the stranded passengers. We were given blankets and pillows. The best thing was the ground staff getting rude after all passengers complaining. They were basically saying we should get stuffed since we were booked for a flight next day same day. This is shameful! Needless to say that I will not fly this airline again!"
Pros: "We had a whole row of 3 to our family, so we could put the armrests up & the kids just laid down in our row (on me, & each other) and slept most of the flight. The flight crew was very understanding and helpful with my kids who were just with me on an intl flight "daddy duty.""
Cons: "Since it was a flight from Seoul, Korea to Seattle; it would've been nicer if all the movies had Korean subtitles-- my 4-yo boy who only speaks Korean, couldn't make it through more than 15 mins of a movie because he couldn't understand (of course, some of that is due to age & short attention-span). But he kept saying, "I hate English" in Korean while trying to pick a movie. Also, I'm 6'2"; so while it was nice having the whole row for my kids to lay down in-- I was cramped and uncomfortable the whole flight, even moreso with Delta's seats being closer together than on other international carriers I've flown."
Pros: "gate and plane staff friendly, smiling and helpful."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, no cabin service on short flight, no power in seats."
Pros: "Is my wife and I first time going with the baby (stroller) we thought it as going to be a nightmare but we had a easy experience"
Cons: "Three hours late leaving Paris. Missed our connecting flight to saint louis. Not much help from Delta."

The service available is amazing 🤩

Cons: "I changed my flight but they didn’t change it and now I’m stuck!!!"
Pros: "I like that it’s a direct flight from Newark to Lomé I like that it’s cheaper than over airlines I like that it’s a late flight: it allows out of state passengers to catch the flight without having to stay overnight in NY"
Cons: "Some crew members are unfriendly The toilets are always smelly and dirty. The floor stick with pee. Pee all over the toilets seats. Unsanitary especially when you are traveling with a child or an elderly. The TVs touch screens do not work The volume of the crew is too high"
Pros: "Large space"
Cons: "Bording"
Cons: "Online check in was not possible. The check in and boarding process took more than two hours and there was no order."
Pros: "nothing really"
Cons: "entertainment system only played audio out of one ear, small selection of movies, flight departed late and gate changed"
Pros: "New aircraft with comfortable business seats"
Cons: "More than 4 hours delay! Not all selection from food menu available"
Pros: "The arm rest was dismantled and had a sharp edge of metal which sliced my arm and thumb when I sat down. I was promised a new seat and never delivered. Horrendous."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "Stop using old planes with no personal entertainment systems on the back of the seats."
Pros: "Crew was helpful. I had 3 seats to myself, so yes. Seating was amazing."
Cons: "The lunch - tooo much rice no sauce. Food was okay. The sandwich was good."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. The crew is an asset to the airline"
Cons: "Boarding is chaotic."
Cons: "Language barriers are always hard, i sat next to someone who didn’t speak English well, one of the flight crew sounded irritated instead of understanding."
Cons: "Crews could have greet and serve passengers with a warm smile. Food was acceptable but not as good as Japan / Korean airlines . I suppose the low airfares reflect its Servicr."
Pros: "the flight was very nice and I thank all the crew for their kindness."
Pros: "I liked the services of the air hostess: they were very polite. The flight was also very comfortable and enjoyable."
Cons: "The person who gives information should speak the English language portion slowly and clearly for better understanding of passengers"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Old flight - equipments were not in order like the handrest was broken, TV’s were broken and not functioning, touch screens failed to react to touch, signs on buttons at the handrest were smudged. 3 out of 6 washrooms in Economy class were not working. At one instance I was locked in the washroom as the door was not opening from inside, until I had to call the attendant. Entertainment options were limited. Food was below average. In one of my meals I got opened and melted butter. Cabin crew was not responding to the calls when I needed water. I finally got it after ringing 4 bells and 45 minutes. Overall, a terrible experience and would not choose to fly with Ethiopian again."
Pros: "Helpful crew."
Cons: "The whole boarding process was a bit chaotic. I was really called on the plane. I tried to signal for a blanket or some food but there was only 2 cabin crew members."
Cons: "Cabin crew quite distracted. Between rows 19-23, orders were totally mixed up People given wrong food or drinks"
Pros: "Cheap fare, no frills."
Cons: "Too hot, crew isn’t friendly (could be cultural difference), jam packed flight with tons of small children so was unlikely to ever be super pleasant."
Cons: "I've been flying Ethiopian airlines over the last four weeks to nine African countries and can give an overall excellent rating. They're always on time. They however showed the same movie on all flights. The food quality and variety also need to be improved. Thanks"
Pros: "Free entertainment! Wish they worked with gogo to purchase WiFi though. Bathrooms are roomier than other airplanes! I’m glad the crew gave me the sandwich even though I was sleeping."
Cons: "One of the toilet covers wouldn’t stay up so you had to hold it while going. Paper towels would be nicer than tissue paper. Wasn’t able to use my boarding pass from my phone, waste of paper. Ginger ale would be a nice drink. Didn’t find a list of their drinks in magazine, that would make it easier. Whenever I needed to use the restroom they locked us out a lot whether for head count or re fueling."
Pros: "Very calm, professional and willing to help you enjoy the flight as much as possible. They show true concern and not a detached professional management that you get from most flight attendants of other airlines."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "untrained staff, pathetic food very conjusted spacewise."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They overbooked and pushed us to later flight, later flight boarded late, on run way 2 hours, plane maintenance issue so changed aircraft—supposed to arrive 1:30pm, arrived after 10pm, gate agent erased reservation adding frequent flyer number so my seat was given to someone else and I sat finally in last row by toilet instead of with my family—then no one can find record of my return flight and Ethiopian contact number impossible to reach. Truly awful experience. I have no idea if I will have seat on return flight."
Pros: "ET's on board crew is excellent. The food is great."
Cons: "Delay.....again."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth. Slept most of the flight. Windows were cool (tint control)"
Cons: "Food was sub par. Leg room limited."
Cons: "Price. Ease of early checkin"
Pros: "The crew where very pleasant, The service on the plane was good you had a choice of what meal you would like to have you also had a choice of any movie or entertainment that you would like to see or play there was more leg space and much more comfortable seating"
Cons: "I can’t fault anything on this flight."
Pros: "The crew where very pleasant & the service on the plane was good"
Cons: "A small plane and not enough leg space, you could not choose your on movie, didn’t have much choice of the meal that was served"
Pros: "The food was terrible but it was somewhat editable. It could have just been because I was so hungry I could eat anything too."
Cons: "The staff was rude, the boarding was a mess, the cabin was at least a little cooler than previous flight but still very uncomfortable, the amount of announcements was absolutely absurd!!! It was almost an announcement every 15 minutes. And the plane played music (terrible music) for 45 min extremely loud after taking off AND and hour before landing. It was so awful and so loud you couldn't even hear your own entertainment playing from your own headsets. I understand music while boarding and de-planing but there is absolutely no reason to have that playing that long after take off and hat soon before landing."
Pros: "seat space was good"
Cons: "the flight was full so drink service was not well organized, lack of water"
Pros: "Cabin crew were all charming."
Cons: "Unfortunately, I had to request earphones (which were not supplied in the seat pocket in front of me) five times from three different attendants over the course of an hour and a quarter before I was given them. This was not just so I could watch a movie but because the quality of the plane's public address system made it very difficult to listen to the announcements from the captain and the crew. Listening on earphones I was able to hear everything clearly. Why it had to take so long just to give me earphones I don't know."
Pros: "POLITE AND GENTLE CREWS. SERVICE WITH A SMILE. AIR FARE REASONABLE COMPARED TO OTHER AIRLINES"
Cons: "IF FARE IS CHEAP THAN THAT DOES NOT MEAN THE SERVICES SHOULD BE POOR"
Pros: "POLITE AND GENTLE CREWS. SERVICE WITH A SMILE. AIR FARE REASONABLE COMPARED TO OTHER AIRLINES"
Cons: "IF FARE IS CHEAP THAN THAT DOES NOT MEAN THE SERVICES SHOULD BE POOR"
Pros: "I liked the interaction of the cabin crew with the passengers. They were helpful and responsive."
Cons: "I was disappointed with the limited entertainment options on board. Also, the boarding was a bit hectic because of the congestion at the airport but I reckon that is not the fault of the airlines."
Pros: "Flying direct from LA to Europe is a challenge. My other flight got cancelled the day of from another airline but i found this flight 12 hours later direct to Ireland for very cheap. Nice staff and amenities. Socks headphones and plenty of LEG ROOM in economy class. Would fly again"
Cons: "not quite enough time with all the announcements to finish my movie."
Pros: "The flight was ok, left late but didn't impact our arrival time."
Cons: "Tray table was very dirty, restroom not cleaned or refilled, generally unkempt."
Pros: "New 350 was a fantastic plane and the seats were excellent. Bags arrived within 15 minutes"
Cons: "nothing negative at all"
Pros: "I did like the overall services. I was comfortable with the crew and was entertained. I enjoyed the night over in the fhoice of loudging with nazra Hotel."
Cons: "I didn't like the quality of food in the hotel panaroma on my return. The hotel needed air refreshner as it wae stuffy and difficult to breath in. The reception was excellent but poor service."
Cons: "I find it exceptionally bizarre that for a company whose name represents a country that spends more than half the year fasting that there isn't an option for this unless you specifically ask online."
Cons: "I used kayak to book the flight and the website provided had the incorrect web address for checking in. When I went directly to the Ethiopian airline website they wouldn't allow me to online check in. I called the agency and I couldn't be connected to anyone. I missed the physical check in by 4 minutes and no one was at the counter to help me reschedule. Really disappointing."
Pros: "Flight was delayed over two hours, because of shortage of aviation fule causing delay in fuelling aircraft"
Cons: "Ethiopia Airport is ruff. Needs bathrooms renovated and more places for waiting for flights the smoking lounge can be smelled through the hole airport"
Pros: "Some okay entertainment."
Cons: "Lights are on too much, service is slow. Food is poor, no variety. They gave out all the blankets and some people were laying down sleeping in the back with 2-3 blankets meanwhile my friend who had a baby couldn't get a blanket. They are VERY slow or disorganized with picking up the trays after meals are completed."
Cons: "We were treated poorly at Kigali airport. Airport and Ethiopian Air staff provided horrible service. Completely unacceptable."
Pros: "Clean, new airline. Comfortable"
Cons: "Kosher food was poor. I know there are higher quality options from Israel, Johannesburg, Frankfurt, etc. This meal was from Antwerp and was not nice at all."
Cons: "Old seats and dirty No entertainment Crew is rude"
