Wonderful time. Everything we enjoy. No complaints. Thanks.
A long haul flight needs roomy and comfortable seats.
BR sink is not properly draining! Oh my! Water is still in the sink from previous passenger.. gross!!!! No toilet seat paper. Too much trash everywhere.. aisle, tray is taking forever to pick up. Movies are too old- most of them. You should have movies for the past 5yrs only. Mix your food of western and middle east. Food that was served is too much for some passengers who are not so familiar with. Too spicy/smelly for me. One meal of this is enough for me… not the whole flight meals. Crews are so helpful and friendly! They are the best throughout my flight/travel experience. Good job!!! Please prioritize how keep your bathrooms clean! Thank you!
The luggage wasn't handled properly. My checked in luggage was damaged badly.
Not sure why everyone has to go through literally 7 different security check points (not Qatars fault) but besides that, everything went very smooth.
Qatar airways Customer service was terrible especially in Baghdad office! They were very unprofessional, helpless and very rude!
More monitoring of passengers wearing musks. Some passengers had their musks off and flights attendants didn’t enforce. That was disappointing
More variety in the entertainment - for instance more competitive sports -soccer, basketball, etc
For 13 hour flight seats were slightly uncomfortable, not much room. Otherwise, everything else was excellent, food, cervice, entertainment, very pleasant.
Pros: "The seats were comfortable. The entertainment system was wonderful."
Cons: "The crew was disorganized."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Longer wifi time and faster connection"
Pros: "Yes very"
Pros: "Entertainment, vegetarian options for food"
Cons: "Bit more comfortable seat"
Pros: "Everything was good and nice. Had a good time and felt welcomed. Had a really good experience."
Cons: "Handling flight delay"
Pros: "Friendly crews. Excellent food. Great service. On time arrival."
Cons: "They could provide hotel for transit passengers with long layovers."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Need to improve wheel chair service at Doha."
Pros: "Plenty of beverage service and food was very good."
Cons: "The other passengers were often rude and uncivilized. I guess Qatar couldn’t do anything about this."
Cons: "Doha to Washington plane was an old plane where entertainment system did not function properly, seats did not recline etc. Emirates A380 is a lot more comfortable plane."
Cons: "The food was not served well. There were no snacks on the flight. The service was not even prompt. If I request for juice/water it was served to me after 30-40 minutes . I was travelling with a baby and the staff was not even considerate about it and attending fast. I requested for a mineral water bottle as I ran out of baby water for making milk for the baby and the staff was so reluctant and told "they are done" and just left.I am really dissapointed with this. I doubt if I would travel with qatar again"
Pros: "Very comfortable flight and helpful crew"
Cons: "food options exhausted pls tell ground catering to provide more food"
Pros: "Seating and comfort is great, as long as you are not seated next to a 'larger' person or a person with restricted mobility. Not a fault of Qatar airways, but probably the norm in most international flights in Economy. Food was the best of all the airlines I have flown, and the correct temperature as well."
Cons: "Seat width could be a little better, but this is the norm, I would assume across all airlines."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth; Plane was clean; Flight departed on time;"
Cons: "Flight arrived late for no obvious reason; Crew was good but not as good as what I have experienced in the past with Qatar and other airlines"
Pros: "Overall the flight went well. Flight attendants were attentive and boarding went fairly quickly and flight was smooth."
Cons: "The bathrooms ran out of water. Not a great movie selection and almost didn't have any choice for lunch."
Cons: "Display showed TV news, not boarding Info. Boarding Zones were announced only once, if you missed it stuck in security you have no way of finding out."
Cons: "Food service was poor; food trays were arranged in a sloppy way; in fact the tray that came to me was not clean at all. First meal service from Doha to Washington (IAD) took nearly 2.5 hours to reach my home after the service started. The male attendants were sloppy, not well organized. When asked why it takes so long, the answer I got: "We were not prepared to meet the customer's preferences." But that does not excuse the long delay in serving row 36."
Pros: "I flew from Bali to Doha and then Doha to Dulles after an 8 hour layover. Both flights operated a Boeing 777. The planes were spotlessly clean both flights. The menu choices were amazing and the wine selections were very good. What made the difference was the attentiveness of the cabin crew. I would particularly like to commend the purser and the flight attendants on flight 707 DOH-IAD for their assistance and willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty"
Cons: "Flight 707 was supposed to have the new Qsuites in Business Class, so it was disappointing that without prior notice the airline switched to an aircraft with normal (but quite good) business class seating. Nevertheless, the purser and the flight attendants made the flight memorable in a very positive way."
Pros: "Good movies, comfortable seats"
Cons: "Staff was not attentive. When requested for a drink with meal, the hostess promised to bring it later but never did."
Cons: "I used Qatar airways 3 times so far. In the last flight, were a connection has 8 hours between 2 flights, they deny me to stay in a hotel. The last 2 flights which have exactly the same schedule, I used the hotel in that 8 hours between the 2 flights. I asked why, they told me that my ticket is not eligible to the hotel, although, I bought the last two times from Kayak, with almost same price. My first flight with Qatar Airways was on July 2017. My second flight with Qatar Airways was on August 2017. My third flight with Qatar Airways was on Jan 208."
Pros: "From Joburg to Doha, the plane was clean and the food was good. . From Doha to Washington, not so much. I went to 3 bathrooms and all the sinks were stopped up."
Cons: "The food from Doha to Washington was beyond awful!!! I wud scrap that whole menu PLEASE. I WAS SEVERELY DISAPPINTED. The previous Quatar flight, the food was different and very good. Please check on this. Also, the sinks were stopped up. Gross."
Pros: "Excellent staff, good service."
Cons: "A Long. Trip"
Cons: "The crew at the ticket counter was quite rude. Our suitcases were 2kg heavier so, in front of them we opened and removed items and then they still made us go through security all over again"
Pros: "Really helpful i was the first one out from airport because i was assigned wheelchair."
Cons: "Everything was all set. Only shortcoming was No free wifi"
Pros: "Onboard crew"
Cons: "Boarding process. It could start on time as printed on the boarding pass. If it is by zone, the provide a few minutes between the zones and adjust time accordingly."
Cons: "Catering and seating. They ran out of food and drinks"
Pros: "-Great selection of movies, Ted talks, and games to view on individual screens, headphones were provided. - Blankets and pillows were provided to everyone, along with a kit with toothbrush, toothpaste, socks, and eye mask. - Adjustable head rest."
Cons: "- Tiny, cramped seats and aisles. I'd heard the Quatar has more leg room than other airlines. This is definitely not true. If the person in front of me reclined all the way, they crushed my knees and I'm only 5'7". - Bathrooms were dirty by 4 hours into the 14 hour flight. Sinks clogged, garbage can overflowing. Not just one bathroom. Gross. - Worst flight attendant service I've ever had, and I don't expect much since I've traveled a lot. Service was rushed, coffee cart for our side of plane never arrived, when I walked to the back to ask for some, they couldn't find the milk and made a fuss about looking for sugar. Lots of similar examples throughout the flight. - The baggage claim carousel number never appeared on the screens at IAD after landing. Other flights showed but not Quatar. We waited a while then walked around to check them all until we found the right carousel. Never seen this happen before. - One of our bags never appeared, so we waited until all luggage had come out and checked with the counter. They found our bag somewhere and brought it over after a 20 minute wait. No explanation given. Good thing we'd counted bags."
Pros: "Very nice"
Cons: "Crews walking between the lines. They don't care pushing to others. They never said sorry for that."
Pros: "The best service"
Cons: "Nothing bad to say"
Cons: "I have flown previously with Qatar and was not so impressed. Everything was great this trip up until my return to the United States. I should have suspected a problem when I was requested to change seat in order to assist a family who were in separate seats. Moving was difficult as the plane was being loaded. I managed to get to the seat offered to find someone sitting in it. To top it off the individual was wearing a surgical mask and carrying a large immigration bag. I requested a seat forward but I was denied and I later saw other passengers moved forward to seats that I was denied. If I had known that the flight would have been full of possibility sick immigrants I would have chosen another flight or airline. At certain times the smells were very bad. I felt as a ff member I should have been treated better or been made aware of possible health risks."
Cons: "I never made it to the Yerevan to Doha flight, because Qatar Airways did not get me to my destination in time. They had an emergency landing in The Azores, after turbulence and several passengers got injured, when the pilot failed to warn passengers to put on their seat belts and they flew into the air, hitting the ceiling before falling down. One passenger had a heart attack. Once they de-planed us in The Azores, not a single Qatar Airways employee helped us on site anymore. Passengers were left in the hands of hotel and airport staff. There was very little communication with the passengers. A relief flight was supposed to come in 12 hours. It did not come for another 35. After the emergency landing, some passengers noticed that a wing looked defective. The disruption may not have been due only to bad weather, but a defective plane as well."
Pros: "Liked the entertainment options with a large movie catalog."
Cons: "Customer service by phone, boarding process, width of seats, speed of cabin service."
Cons: "The luggage management system was terrible. We had to wait 2 extra hours for a single carry-on that we had to check in before our 15 hour flight. After a 24 hour journey, it is really inconsiderate to add extra hours to the journey. For luggage, I would give a 1, very poor rating for Qatar Air."
Pros: "Great flights. Lots of room in economy, which is needed for a 14 hour flight. Also excellent personal entertainment system in the seat. This was my first flight on Qatar airlines. I will definitely book on Qatar again."
Food could be better and there was no entertainment on the 737 Max 800 for a 4.5 hour flight, surely this can be sorted
Work on entertainment systems and seat comfort. Seats are very old and worn out. Entertainment systems not working,
Pros: "We got scammed out of the tickets from Justfly.com and Ethiopian Airlines turned us away without looking at our tickets. I am upset. Now I have to get more Covid Testing done and that will cost approx. $700 and new plane tickets. JustFly.com's customer service is misleading and deceiving. And they blocked my number."
Cons: "Background check your booking agencies and their agents."
Pros: "Great crew, Food."
Cons: "Reduce baggage charges."
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: "The crew were fantastic! The one meal from Athens to Cairo was excellent, the other two meals weren’t too bad but not as good as the first one."
Cons: "The security in Cairo was really a joke."
Pros: "Crew was helpful, everythinf fine"
Cons: "The food was not so good. Bit cold.."
Pros: "Crew was super nice. The woman at check-in gave us bulkhead seats so my friend and I could sit together. With this, we were able to board first to get plenty of space in the overhead bins. Food and flight entertainment were free and definitely better than average."
Pros: "Comfortable seat and fairly friendly crew"
Cons: "Better reception and understanding at the airport. The staffs are not considerate."
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "they woke me up in the middle of the night to give me food.."
Cons: "Addis Airport is a NIGHTMARE!!! It took two hours to check in and the lines were insane. It was absolute chaos, people pushing and airport staff did little to manage it. We almost missed our flight because the lines and process was so disorganized. The plane ride - the plane was old. My seat was so old, the cushion was worn down to the point of feeling like a bucket seat. This was really bad..."
Pros: "I like the crew of Ethopian Airlines, they are very friendly & attentive. Flight was delayed but not by AE fault. We made up most of the time & arrived only 15 minutes behind schedule"
Cons: "It was all good"
Pros: "Landing on time"
Cons: "Limited choice of food- no vegetarian options, only meat."
Cons: "No way to charge a phone!"
Cons: "The services at the airport was terrible. The Booked me a flight with only a 30 minute layover. When I try telling the people before boarding the plane, big Norred me. When I told the flight attendant she said she would talk to the captain to see if there’s a way I could get a ride to my next plane so I wouldn’t miss it. That never happened. When we got off the plane no one at the airport would help us and when I was trying to run to my next terminal one of the officers at the airport told me to slow down because I wouldn’t miss the plane and I was fine. When I asked help with directions and told him I was afraid of missing my flight people laughed and walked away. When I finally found my terminal and got to it, my flight had already took off seven minutes prior. I absolutelyHated my experience flying with Ethiopian air. The seats are uncomfortable on the plane, not all the seats recline back the same level, and when I was eating dinner I decided to eat chicken since I can’t eat beef and halfway through the check in my stomach started her and I looked up the chicken and it was still pink inside."
Pros: "friendliness of staff. special attention given to my 22 mo old granddaughter. adorable!"
Pros: "Flight crew was nice and responded to problems well. More trash pick up and water service would have been nice as it was a thirsty, long flight. I was given more water when asked it just wasn’t freely offered."
Cons: "The arrangement of the airport was disconcerting. To get to your gate you have to pass a another security point that you can not leave. The area was akin to a cattle yard. No bathroom, water, or amenities. You had to stay in your pen until boarding. Duty free was not allowed and had to be purchased on the plane for an additional cost. Not to mention the whole stopping in Dublin, Ireland for fuel without notice. There was nothing in my paperwork about it and we were only told to stay in our seats for the next hour or so while they refueled. We didn’t do that on the flight over was that was worrying and we were given no additional information."
Cons: "Waiting for customer service"
Pros: "I took a roundtrip to Addis Abeba, Ethiopia from Washington, DC. The trip was 13 hours there and 16 on the way back (I think that included a refueling stop in Dublin). There was plenty of food and beverages provided throughout the flight - usually every 3 hours or so. Blankets, pillows, and several movie/entertainment were provided."
Cons: "I would prefer the the main cabin lights be kept off longer."
Pros: "Good food for a such a short trip to Nairobi."
Cons: "Boarding very confusing, gates changing and could barely hear through the PA system."
Cons: "The headphones weren’t working and boarding at Addis was very poor. They should have more personal when checking before the Gates"
Cons: "Did not provide special meal although I called ahead to request it. Connecting flight left before we arrived to Addis Ababa. Customer service tried to encourage the thought that putting us on a different flight was a courtesy..."
Pros: "The plane is spacious lost of leg room"
Cons: "can improve on the food"
Pros: "Meal service plentiful. They kept the bathrooms very clean"
Cons: "This plane seemed older not as spacious or as clean as planes on Ethiopian I've traveled on before. Horrible film selections, and it's the same coming and going."
Pros: "Sleeping most of the way"
Cons: "everything about it, from the random cancellation of my flight, to missing my connection, and their inability to get me another flight, spending over 24 hours in travel for a mere 6 hour flight. No customer service, would never recommend Ethiopian Airlines to anyone."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and the crew courteous. In fact the passengers all applauded when we landed."
Cons: "To reach Addis Abba/Arusha from the west coast of the US by Ethiopian Air, one must go through Dublin. I wish there was a Seattle to Addis Abba choice."
Pros: "Customer service was great and the restrooms were cleaned regularly unlike some long haul flights where it's not the case."
Pros: "See above."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "Boarding and the programmatically were fine."
Cons: "It was a middle of the night flight and everyone was sleeping. The lights seem to come on every hour."
Cons: "The waiting time for the connecting flight to was far too long...."
Cons: "Lack of customer service. Due to the delay in Washington, we missed our connecting flight. Though the EA personnel knew of our delay and missed flight, we still had to wait in line at the counter for 3 hours in order for them to put us up in a hotel and make other arrangements. Though they had 15 hours to do this for us, they did not. They served some customers and did not serve others. There was no communication whatsoever, they just handed us papers without explaining what was happening."
Pros: "Entertainment options were good and they fed you several times"
Cons: "-changed flight schedule several times after booking ticket -3/4 segments were delayed causing me to miss connections - staff unaware of procedures -several mechanical problems with plane -still do not have bags after 7 days -no compensation provided for inconvenience -poor customer service"
Pros: "The flight attendants seemed a bit disorganized delivering the food and drinks"
Pros: "The service onboard was excellent!"
Cons: "The food was almost edible, but i stil ate it because i was hungry. The fish was not even real, just some sort of fishmeal,"
Pros: "Long flight but comfortable. Pleasant crews"
Cons: "Horrible food selection, needs improvement"
Cons: "I ordered a vegan food. The crew had difficulties in delivering this simple thing"
Pros: "We are so tired of showing up our passports many times in the ethiopian air lines. Overall we had a very good trip and the crews were so nice."
Cons: "allocated the worst seat on the plane despite choosing a different seat online"
Pros: "I flew on the 787 dreamliner, and it was THE BEST airplane I have ever flown on. The service was excellent and the seats were very comfortable. I highly recommend this."
Cons: "There was nothing that I did not like."
Cons: "boarding announcements difficult to understand toilets not kept clean - not enough for size of plane stewards just OK - understaffed for a full 787 food mediocre - definitely better on other carriers to Africa spent 21 hrs in one plane from JRO to IAD in part caused by a 5 hr mechanical repair in Dublin pilot lead us to believe repair would be quick but it wasn't overall my worst international flight out of several dozen I will not fly Ethiopian Air again"
Cons: "- had to wait in long queues for boarding, security and bus - flight was delayed - old plane - causing ear pressure without kids water bottles - addis ababa airport needs many improvements !"
Pros: "this part of the flight was not a pleasant one. the crew kept passing me over no matter how much I called. but they seemed more attentive to their native people (Ethiopian) because they spoke the same language. this was frustrating, the entertainment did not work for the entire flight, thank God I had my Bible to read...."
Pros: "Comfortable seats - but a bit of confusion for my family."
Cons: "My 3 year old son was originally placed away from the rest of our family. Obviously we were not going to allow that. Our 1 year old was to have access to a sleeping carriage but to fix the problem with our sons seat they moved the rest of us to the center of the plane. (A spot with no carriage placement). This was not resolved - and we ended up holding our daughter for 17 hours."
Pros: "We arrived nearly on time & without issue."
Cons: "The plane was warm & no cool air was being dispersed in the cabin & because of that it was very dry. Better temperature regulation, climate control is needed to make fir a more comfortable flight."
Pros: "Seat was small but comfortable. Everything went smoothly."
Cons: "The plane was very cold"
Pros: "Food was delicious!!"
Pros: "The crew and the entertainment were excellent."
Cons: "The seating area is very tight and the aisles were extremely narrow."
Pros: "The attendant at the desk was very accommodating towards my needs."
Pros: "They smiled, gave a friendly farewell, made sure everyone was hydrated."
Cons: "Don't get an attitude with calm passengers asking for assistance for their seatmates. Sometimes they wouldn't ask me what I wanted to eat or drink, they just assumed I already heard them ask other passengers and just waited for me to answer. It just seems lazy to me."
Pros: "Flight was good and I am satisfied."
Cons: "My entertainment set didn't work because the headphone jack was broken so that was a major bummer."
Pros: "Lot of leg room!"
Cons: "WiFi for Entertainment system was spotty, freezing very often. Unfortunately this issue has become more common in United flights lately."
Cons: "Totally false information provided by Kayak re: seating and seat assignment. Sold as Austrian Airlines flight w/ links to their baggage policies and ability to pick seat. Arrived at airport and told I must check in with United, who charged me baggage fees contrary to Austrian policy."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Impossible to get entertainment to work"
Pros: "I like flying Lufthansa for entire trip then changing to united airlines"
Cons: "Particular everything the airline"
Cons: "I missed having the navigation map when traveling such a long distance."
Pros: "Brought my own entertainment. Friendly staff. Great boarding process. On time departure"
Pros: "Seem to be a smooth and direct flight"
Cons: "The flight was fine however my seat was next to the bathroom and people would occasionaly Bump in to me ."
Pros: "Did not have any food so an N/A option for this category is needed."
Cons: "The exit, economy plus seat I chose was described as limited recline when it fact the chairs do not recline at all. I was so disappointed. Had I known this, I would have chosen a different seat. My neck was hurting by the end of the flight."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Friendly crew."
Cons: "It turned out that we were on stand by (without anyone telling us until the morning of the flight) and did not know if we were going to fly out. We could not select any seats at check in and only found out our seats a few hours before the flight. It was quite unpleasant and stressful as my husband and I were flying with our two children and faced a real possibility of not being able to sit together or getting bumped off a flight all together. It was a code shared flight between Lufthansa and United and each airline kept sending us to the other to get any answers or help. neither were helpful. It made it for an extremely frustrating experience."
Cons: "My parents were traveling, they dont speak english and I verified with Austrian airlines that they would be assisted at the gates and that they had the correct visas for each airport they had a layover in. I was assured there would be no problems. Upon boarding they were not able to get on their flight. I have never had so many communication issues and frustrations in the middle of the night with an airline. disappointed."
Pros: "The boarding was quick and the flight was on time. The crew was courteous."
Cons: "I selected economy comfort in the kayak app, but when I called about my boarding pass, kayak said they only sell basic economy. What did I buy? UAL only sells a limited selection of overpriced food. There is no music and you have to pay to see the flight map."
Pros: "The boarding and seating happened in a timely fashion, and the crew was courteous. The lunch meal (I had requested Asian vegetarian) wasn't amazing, but not as bad as it could've been."
Cons: "The flight was not with Lufthansa, but it was actually through United, which was extremely confusing as I did my ticket confirmation, seat booking and meal choice through Lufthansa prior to my trip. To find out on the day of the flight that I had to check in and go through United was extremely annoying, as the counters are in different terminals and it was unnecessarily stressful. The flight itself was crammed, with absolutely no leg space, and not even enough space under the seat to stow my backpack (which had fit perfectly on my Brussels Airlines flight to Madrid). I had requested the Asian vegetarian meal, and the snack we got prior to landing was pretty much two slices of cucumber on a small bun (and an apple on the side) - extremely dry and hard to eat. I asked for mayo, but the flight neither had that, nor any other condiments to make the "sandwich" more edible."
Pros: "plane was relatively quiet and comfortable."
Cons: "Nothing wrong with boarding a plane using a bus, but there are better technologies and they are better."
Cons: "I was unable to go on the flight because of the extraordinarily high cost of changing a last name from a maiden name to a married name. I was so disappointed by the service."
Pros: "I upgraded to premium economy and was glad I did. Extra space and and empty chair next to me."
Cons: "For a 9 hour flight, food wasn't filling nor was there enough. I wouldn't have even minded paying a little extra for snacks but a small dinner and small sandwich as a snack was all there was. Plenty of drinks though. My day did not recline all the way, I only got it to move an inch or so."
Pros: "This flight was a good value."
Cons: "My legs are short and the seat seemed a little higher than other plans. I couldn't rest my feet flat on the floor for 6 1/2 hours. This was very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Crew was helpful."
Cons: "We were sitting right next to the crew resting area and it was very restricting to us. I had two little kids that I had to keep quiet for about 6 hours out of 8. Even when my kids were quiet, we were reminded twice to keep quiet. It was very restricting and I was forced to walk back and forth with my two year old to keep her quiet so the crew can rest. Why is the crew resting when they are supposed to be working on that flight? The meal quality sucked, I did not finish it, let alone my kids. My kids were prettu much hungry for 8 hrs. Not a very family friendly flight."
Pros: "Good crew!! Entertainment screen not as good as SAS"
Cons: "The crew was haughty and rude, my purse was taken and stowed in overhead storage, the person sitting next to me wouldn't stow the carry on luggage. I needed to take my daily medication during the flight and was not able to. I have chronic health issues and needed to take it on schedule, I was delayed in getting home because I had to stop and eat in the airport and take my medication"
Pros: "Service Cleanliness Food Entertainment Boarding"
Cons: "Length of Flight"
Pros: "The flight attendant used my name. Great landing."
Cons: "Tar mat loading. In flight service."
Cons: "can't believe you still have those low quality touch screens. they are very non-touch sensitive, and don't respond well to attempted touch commands."
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "2 Delays"
Pros: "Everything good. Thank you"
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Pros: "We liked the crew, they were helpful."
Cons: "We did not like the video on the United flight that used the app. We were not told about this until it was too late and the instructions were not good for how to get the app--they were misleading. I had to go to the app store, not the United website. Also, our seats were changed without our knowledge and the flight description for the flight from Austin to Washington, DC, specified complimentary lunch and there was no lunch unless you wanted to buy it. This should be more clear, so that I can bring my own lunch if there will be none provided."
Pros: "The service was amazing."
Cons: "It was a bit difficult to navigate my way in Munich but the staff was helpful. I would suggest a 2 hour layover."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable in exit row."
Cons: "Flight sat on runway for over an hour."
Pros: "The ground & flight crew was wonderful and accommodating"
Cons: "I wasn't allowed to bring in my carry-on luggage I was forced to check it in. We were told the compartments were fall once we boarded there was plenty of space in the luggage compartment it was a bit disappointing. I think the entertainment is overpriced as well"
Pros: "I lost my wallet on the plane to San dieago. A very nice honest family turned it over to the crew. The baggage claim customer service agent ran back to the plane to retrieve it for me. It had everything I needed, my ID cash for my trip. I'm thankful for the honest people still in this world! Many thanks to the family and crew and uninteds customer service!!! A+++++"
Pros: "the United app that let me watch movies from my own device. The flight attendant gave me an extra blanket."
Cons: "the plane was very old and didn't have the entertainment options that newer planes have. The screen was so small and nearly impossible to see when the person in front of me reclined. The toilets weren't very clean. The food was very mediocre. I have a dairy intolerance, and both options contained dairy products. There was no lactose free or diabetic special meal option. There was an hour and a half delay to repair something on the plane when we made an emergency medical landing in Boston. I didn't mind the landing; I minded the excessive delay and wonder what would have happened if we didn't stop in Boston? What would have happened to the plan?"
Pros: "Flight wasn't that long. Experience was okay. Flight was full. Attendants did their job. Some were more polite and helpful than others."
Cons: "No request was made for the outbound flight which I want to comment about. At Dulles Airport, I checked in at the Brussels Airline counter, only to be told that since I was on a flight operated by United, then I had to go to the United Airlines counter to check in. At UA, I was handed a boarding pass which advised that my seat will be assigned at the gate. I saw on the monitor where the available seats were-1 window, the remainder middle row. I got the feeling that since I bought a ticket which cost less than what the other United Airlines customers paid for, then I was being relegated to seats that the other travelers didn't desire."
Pros: "Having movies is the best, followed by pillows and blankets"
Cons: "Stressed and unfriendly attendants (except 2). Didn't ask meal preference, just gave me chicken and I had to ask for switch. Would say things like "I don't have time" and "we'll do it later when the cart comes around". Only had 1 drink service, I don't think they made it all the way to my row. Very different than flight from USA to Paris."
Pros: "Offering food and drinks as part of ticket price, on-time departure, efficient service."
Cons: "More leg room without extra fees."
Pros: "The flight was on time and smooth, crew were friendly."
Cons: "It was freezing cold in the plane. People were putting on sweatshirts and jackets and covering up with blankets. Why should we be required to bring winter clothes with us when plane interiors are temperature-controlled?"
Pros: "...I got the standby flight....I guess that's cool..."
Cons: "My red eye was delayed35 minutes because of wheel replacement making it impossible for me to make my40 some odd minute layover and I had to burn up hours of my vaca in an airport and reschedule a pick up."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and the pilot kept us informed at all times. For example, we got to Dayton early and we sat on the Tarmac for about five minutes as there was another plane there. That was no problem. But, after plane left we sat there until it was time for us to arrive before ground crew came out. Then, we waited 20 minutes for our baggage. That was not your fault. That was the fault of the airport as it has happened to me before. The pilot was very apologetic and kept us informed. I appreciated that very much."
Cons: "I was so excited because there were TV's on each seat, but I could not use because the place where I had to plug in for sound was broken. That was a disappointment."
Pros: "My other passengers in First Class. Your crew was also very kind and well mannered."
Cons: "I spent over 150 for an upgrade for a red eye for a flight I already spent over 500. Your crew lacked attention in service and one specific crew member (male) woke me up twice due to the loudness of his voice. Disappointed in the quality for the amount spent."
Pros: "The crew on this flight was absolutely amazing. They were helpful, they were very kind, and very pleasant. Probably the best flight crew I've ever had. Despite originally being annoyed that I wasn't allowed to pick/change my seat, I somehow miraculously got an economy plus seat so I had what felt like a first-class amount of space."
Cons: "Again, the flight was delayed. Despite originally being told that we were trying to get out ahead of storms so we wanted to get going quickly, we ended up boarding and then sitting there for probably an hour and a half. The pilot/copilot were great at letting us know what was going on, but the fact that both the first and second leg of my journey were delayed was excrutiately annoying. Having already been traveling for over 8 hours, the last thing I wanted to do was be even later and extend the flight even longer, obviously. The entertainment also was not available due to some problem in the circuit for the entirety of sitting there waiting to taking off and the first 15 minutes of the trip. Again, the attendants did everything they could and were very attentive, it was just frustrating to not really be sure that entertainment was going to be available for the 9 hour flight you just sat down for. Thereafter the entertainment was great. The food was, again, pretty mediocre compared to other transatlantic flights I've taken. The lasagna was not very good tasting at all. The sandwich they brought near the end of the flight was tasty though. Another plus was full sized cans of juice as opposed to a tiny glass. Honestly once this flight got off the ground it was good. However the combination of the delays, plus my terrible previous flight (which was the one directly operated by Lufthansa, the second flight was farmed out to United) just made the whole journey pretty awful, and probably the worst of my life. On my flight from Munich to Cairo, three weeks ago, Lufthansa left my bag in Munich despite the fact that I had an 8 hour layover - which you'd think would be more than enough to put a bag on a plane. They were very quick about delivering my bag once it arrived, but that previous experience with Lufthansa just served to bring down my opinion of the entire airline. Honesty, I had been told by friends that Lufthansa was a pretty good airline, that didn't show at all. There's a pretty big chance I'll never willingly fly Lufthansa again if there's even a remotely comparable option (which there almost always is)."
Cons: "Flight got cancelled, we did not receive an email or text. We found out when we reached the Heathrow airport. We got booked on another flight, with 6 hour layover. When the flight that got cancelled was a direct flight. Then our luggage was not put on the connecting flight, we got our luggage 24 hours later."
Pros: "Great free movies in first class."
Cons: "The first class crew was not very warm or welcoming. The outgoing flight from IAD set the bar high -- they could've spent less time gossiping and more time remembering my drink order."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "Food quality"
Pros: "Great crew n comfort."
Cons: "The entertainment choices needs updates and more varieties I believe."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable. Entertainment system stopped working part way through"
Cons: "Boarding at Brussels was awful. After arriving from another international city and having to go through security, I was informed , just before boarding that I had to go to a location 20 gates away and wait in a long line for another security sticker. It was very confusing."
Pros: "It was ok"
Pros: "On board service and entertainment. The plane itself was clean and comfortable."
Cons: "The check in process was slow and inefficient. One of our bags was routed on another flight (we’re still waiting for it). Ridiculous amount charged for chech in luggage for an international flight!"
Pros: "More space that on competitors."
Cons: "The crew was not particularly pleasant to deal with. Also, the seat kept reclining itself without me ever pressing the button. Had to constantly adjust it."
Pros: "Efficient and very nice crew"
Cons: "90 minutes delay for departure from Brussels to Washington..."
Pros: "Seats were old, but very spacious and comfortable."
Cons: "The boarding process seemed disorganized, and the plane took off late due to waiting for late passengers."
Pros: "3-3-3 layout in economy on the United 777 I was on meant I wasn't cramped for space. WiFi worked well for a significant amount of the time I used it."
Cons: "Food was typical economy class fare."
Cons: "I am handicap, I travel with a scooter. We let them know months in advance and still they did not plan or assist. My scooter was not brought up in Brussels or DC, I refused to leave the plane in DC until they finally brought it to plane. They sat me in row 38...I can only walk a few feet so the airline failed in every aspect...epuc fail. I will never fly Brussels airlines again."
Cons: "There was someone that pooped themselves, another that threw up, and the flight attendants were so rude. They kept spraying stuff in the air and even those of us sitting, so much in fact I had an asthma attack and had to use my inhaler. When I told the attendant, she said "theres nothing I can do," and kept spraying the air with this awful spray. The flight harmful to my health, exhausting, and uncomfortable. BEWARE OF THIS AIRLINE! I would have preferred not gone on my trip then fly this airline!"
Pros: "We got warm washcloths to refresh our hands and face. A full bottle of water to save as we needed, followed immediately by a beverage service and pretzels. Dinner of either fish or chicken was delicious, and included bread, cheese, salad, and dessert. Followed by additional beverage services, a mushroom calzone and finally Belgium chocolates. The crew was friendly and entertainment on personal monitors was very good. This was the best overseas flight I have had in several years."
Cons: "Aisles were very narrow to access bathrooms."
Cons: "When I was trying to get in the line to check"
Pros: "I found that the meal served was of particularly good quality and tasty"
Pros: "The flight was pleasant and the crew was friendly and professional. I pre-ordered a special meal, which came with no problems."
Cons: "The boarding process was so disorganized. They called us for boarding but crammed all of us into a waiting area before the boarding door was open. We were all standing in tight conditions for 50 minutes before we were let through and ended up taking off late. They later made an announcement on the plane that this was due to a problem with the airline's cleaning crew."
Pros: "Airplane was clean and service was attentive. Food was good and served hot."
Cons: "Flight delayed and waited over an hour at baagage claim .no one to speak to or help. Worker at baggage claim sitting on phone ."
Cons: "Stingy with food, very little entertainment if at all"
Cons: "To small of a choice to choose from. More options and also newer movies would have been better. Also the toilet flooded about an hour or so left in the flight and the cabin smelled pretty bad."
Cons: "Late departure in Brussels with confusing and inaccurate information. The food was tasteless, my kids and I hardly ate anything because of it. The in-flight entertainment options were pretty limited. Once again, the flight crew was not very friendly or service minded."
Pros: "I enjoyed everything but"
Cons: "....the morning snack and audio of the movies. Also, wifi should be available (even if it's an additional cost)"
Pros: "The crew was on point, the comfort was great though the plane was a bit cold they had plenty of blankets. The organization of finally getting onto the plane was great."
Cons: "The boarding process was confusing and disorganized. Perhaps it's always this way but they began boarding rows 32-47, but never changed the monitor when boarding of additional rows began. I didn't understand the need for extra security prior to arriving at the gate either. I was already in the terminal, but then needed an additional sticker on my passport. Not enough options in the entertainment section."
Pros: "helpful crew"
Cons: "flight was delayed"
Cons: "Very dirty plane, limited space poor customer service. Took pictures of stained trays, seats. Very gross."
Cons: "The special meal that I had requested was not available. In fact the only meals on the Brussels to Washington leg were chicken/fish. No vegetarian meal was provided."
Pros: "Sufficient seat space in a window seat. Excellent customer service on board, compared to any US service provider."
Cons: "Boarding. Unorganized and not very customer friendly."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Horrible food if you opt for Halal. Imagine having to eat the same thing from start to end in an international flight. Major turbulence, got sick to the stomach when I got home. I have to admit my overall experience was very very poor."
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "Food was fair. Movie selection was poor."
Pros: "Leg room and food on board was pretty good. The flight crew was very friendly."
Cons: "The competence and effectiveness of the boarding crew was deplorable. Everyone looked and acted like it was their first day on the job. If I have a choice, I don't think I will ever fly this airline again. Brussels airport is also a confusing mess. You just wait in line after line with no clear direction. They left one of my bags behind in Brussels as well, and I have yet to receive an update on where it is."
Pros: "The crew seemed nice"
Cons: "I was literally in tears by the end of my flight because my back hurt so bad in the seats. When I was boarding, I had a two hour layover and I still had to run for my flight and they were already boarding when I got there. The food was tasteless. All I could do was try and sleep and pray the flight ended quickly."
Cons: "I would like a survey about my experience flying FROM JFK TO MONROVIA on Dec. 5 & 6! I have decided that this was my last voluntary flying experience with Brussels Airlines!"
Pros: "Once on the aircraft, the flight was quite nice. The drinks and food were very good. The flight attendants were very helpful. Having blankets was very nice, since it was very cold in some sections near the toilets. I was selected for supplementary search but the attendants were very efficient and courteous."
Cons: "No one explained why one needed to go through the Brussels Airlines pre-check gate (at gate #40) and have our passports reviewed again and a sticker added. It was a mess. At the gate, it wasn't clear where the boarding lines were compared to the lines to see a desk clerk and no one was around to explain what was going on. We didn't know if there was another check going on or it was a boarding line."
Pros: "USB socket and decent selection of movies, music etc."
Cons: "No wifi and no electrical socket. By row 43, they ran out of blankets and dinners other than beef. The check-in website looked like it was from the 1990s. When I had to pay for a second bag at the airport (IAD) on the outbound flight, it took 15 minutes. When I came (BRU), they told me to wait in 3 different lines, wasting 30 minutes, before I got to the correct line. Then board the flight to return was a 45 minute delay. It's like these guys were totally new to the airline business."
Pros: "Flight time and plane were fine."
Cons: "United charged over twice the fees for extra bags! I feel this was unfair."
Cons: "* No information was provided to the passengers about an additional delay of the flight after the original 5 hour delay. * No compensation was offered for the inconvenience of a delayed baggage by 2 days. * My family is definitely not going to fly with Brussels Airlines after the experience we had."
Cons: "Audio didn't work, broken tray that the food and drink could fall, unresponsive crew staffs (they consistently ignored my call and even turned off the call light above my seat-they just didn't do anything)"
Pros: "The food, efficient crew"
Cons: "Awful boarding process, one person alone for all the passengers with another 3 around doing nothing, which caused the departure to take place more than an hour late"
Cons: "The flight was canceled. I found out the day before my departure - the airlines didn't even contact me to let me know - and I never got reimbursed for the canceled flight. I had to purchase a $1500 new ticket to get back home in time. I wrote to the Brussels Airlines and they never addressed these complains."
Pros: "The service was only exceptional l, there weren't too many good movies selections.overall The turbulence made made the trip worse although the whether was very.l clear. There was also a weird background noise. Boarding was terrible had to wait an hour in a long line"
Pros: "I liked the crew. They were really nice and spoke many languages. Even though my seat was in the middle I still was able to see out of the window."
Cons: "There was nothing:)"
Pros: "My flight was cancelled at midnight. It was delayed at least five times before we were notified it was cancelled. The staff was rude and mon accomidating. I had to cancel work. I'm tired and angry."
Cons: "United airlines"
Cons: "Airfair.com is terrible. They re-ticketed my mother who was traveling with me on a different flight and would not acknowledge this. I was able to get it resolved but took many calls and emails - a huge hassle. I would never book another flight through this "travel agency"."
Pros: "Flight attendants very responsive and all staff friendly."
Cons: "THE AIRPORt!!! I give their handling of the difficult problem they faced a zero out of ten."
Cons: "Very poor management of flight changes with Brussels Airport being closed. We had to book a whole new flight and are fighting to get refunds for the flights that eventually didn't even happen."
Cons: "No drink or food offered"
Cons: "It is unacceptable to have you go from the gate down two flights of stairs with your carryons so you can board a bus to take you to the plane."
Cons: "Everything was excellent thank you so much"
Pros: "Late boarding ruined everything !!"
Cons: "Late boarding! Crew lack of customer service skill! Food wasn’t good enough as well! ....etc"
Pros: "comfy seats"
Cons: "nothing for now"
Cons: "Respect times of flights & communication with passengers at counters"
Cons: "Baggage handlers strike caused 3 hour delay departure. Plane was hot and bathrooms dirty. Food was good along with entertainment. Luggage was slow. Overall I would not recommend this airline."
Pros: "Leg room was good"
Cons: "We were prevented from bringing water on board and then only provided with small glasses three times during the long flight."
Pros: "Nothing is fine , food is shity"
Pros: "Timeliness of food and cleaning up."
Cons: "Crew's short patience with customers"
Pros: "Very accommodating airline. Would use them again"
Cons: "The airline wasn't the issue, but the passengers seated around me didn't give me any space or an armrest. I wish I had had a window or aisle seat on that particular flight. The service was otherwise fine, but being that boxed in for so many hours cast the whole flight in a less than pleasant light."
Pros: "The crew was responsive to needs that came up."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour and we didn’t actually leave for two hours because the boarding process was so disorganized. They had us line up over an hour before we could actually board the plane. People are so irritable that a shouting fight broke out in the process. The screens on the back of the seats work inconsistently. No wifi. And this was on the Dreamliner! not the worst flight I’ve been on but negatives definitely outweighs positives."
Pros: "The crew on board was excellent"
Cons: "The boarding process was the worst I’ve ever seen. No communication and when there was seemed very annoyed"
Cons: "Flight was overbooked. Had an issue getting my ticket 2.5 hours prior to schedule flight departure. Flight was originally scheduled to leave at 4:30. It was first delayed to 8:50 p.m. Then further delayed to 10:00 p.m. Plane left Casablanca much later than 10:00 p.m. which caused a very late arrival to IAD airport, 2:30 a.m. Boarding was a disaster. Stayed in line for over an hour not knowing if the plane was going to take off from Casablanca. No water was distributed and no communication was shared with the passengers until the crew announced boarding."
Pros: "I liked the flight in general. No turbulence and the flight crew was accommodating"
Cons: "The seats were outdated"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and efficient. Seats and food were fine. Flight was smooth and on schedule.. Generous free checked baggage. Rare today!"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic with passengers made to wait in the jcorridor for 10-15 minutes until boarding continued. Board when the bus is waiting and plane doors are open! On board my 787 flight, the tray tables were very hard to close, the entertainment system didn’t work, and the bathroom, while not filthy, could have been a little cleaner."
Cons: "Delayed flight as they waited their passenger from Barcelona to arrive. Total chaos at baggage claim"
Cons: "Very poor help internationally"
Pros: "Take off and landing were exceptionally smooth. Good pilots and a clean plane."
Cons: "The food-not good! Transit-more needs to be done for passengers who are connecting to other flights. Airport staff are just dismissive and seem uninterested."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Didn’t even have an option to pick a seat even though I tried through various venues (when purchasing tickets, setting a preference after buying, when checking in, in the airport after checking in); completely disorganized airline with no communication or customer service. Would never recommend this airline to another person even if it is the cheapest option. Can’t trust the airline to get you to your destination as they claim"
Cons: "Once again, there were some issues because I am pregnant. There was continued confusion and duplication with the release of liability forms, and then there was an unfortunate incident wherein my water was taken away prior to the boarding area with a promise that I could get more in the boarding area. This turned out not to be the case. Luckily, there was a very kind staff person who ran onto the plane and retrieved a bottle of water for me, but this should not be the policy."
Pros: "Longer flights have personal entertainment systems"
Cons: "Signage and communication in the Morocco airport was limited and often confusing"
Pros: "Aircraft and service"
Cons: "Smooth flight"
Pros: "I liked that i came to visit my daughter"
Cons: "Service and crew need a real makeover"
Pros: "This particular flight was fine. Royal Air gives a sense of being unreliable overall, though."
Cons: "I’m not sure how much the airlines can control this, but boarding in Morocco was an absolute nightmare both coming and going. There are gates but the boarding flights are not really posted clearly and not announced. Even standing right next to the final checkpoint, you are likely to miss the boarding call. Fortunately it is such a cluster that you have enough time to eventually figure it out and not get left behind. Also, many connecting passengers had to check in and get boarding passes in Casablanca and whoever was in charge of seat assignments simply could not have cared less. I was traveling solo, but witnessed at least 4 separate instances of families not getting seated together or even in close proximity - even couples!! I don’t think I’ve ever seen that many disgruntled passengers before a flight departs when a flight hasn’t been delayed or cancelled. Note to fellow passengers: If you’re traveling with others, check your tix/passes and ensure you’re sitting together before you walk away from the counter. And ask for clarification there if you’re not sure. If you make it to the plane with those passes, the plane crew will tell you that you accepted them so those are your seats - they will not work with you."
Pros: "Once in flight, the staff were courteous and the flight was uneventful"
Cons: "securuity at CSM was the pits. Way too many check points and very rude security personel. in flight food was pretty bad"
Pros: "Customer service was great."
Cons: "Airline routed bags to wrong destination"
Pros: "Seats on business class (dreamliner) but need for more ubs sockets Cabin crew Large variety of drinks Very large (maybe too) large portions of foods"
Cons: "Boarding with no attention to business class at baggage check and transportation to the aircraft Entertainment not including news Foods to be more diversified"
Pros: "I liked that it is non-stop and that Royal Air Maroc now flies to Washington DC rather than having to drive all the way to New York to catch a flight."
Cons: "it was very dirty and the bathrooms were broken not an enjoyable flight at all"
Cons: "Every single flight was significantly delayed, disorganized and with uncourteous staff. one flight was so delayed we missed our connection. I've reached out to Royal Air Moroc and no response."
Cons: "Again, there was confusion in the transactions that could have been improved with better communication."
Pros: "not over-booked, so was able to get my own row to sleep, efficient generally"
Cons: "male flight attendants and staff are a bit surly - some of the new security requirements, like having to check in computer and iPad when coming tot he US from Morocco, were not adequately explained or handled in a customer-service-oriented manner"
Pros: "Flight was a quarter empty so I could spread out a bit more. Food was better than most Airlines, including US Carriers. Didn't lose my bag or damage it."
Cons: "Check-in took 35-45 mins. See one person working while the other 3 sat around. On CMN-IAD leg i Got two cups of water with meal. Asked twice after meal and both flight attendants said ok but never returned with any. 2 hrs later I got up to get some water and went to galley and asked FA's for some. They didn't speak, they acted like I was bothering them and one pointed to the cups and water bottles...directing me to get my own. Never had that happen before and I fly often. US Air carriers typically have water Service at least once an hour. This flight it only occurred during meal Service, which was twice during entire 7.5 hour flight. Flight going IAD-CMN wasn't any better. I fell sick due to dehydration on the flight. Had same issue with not getting water on flight. Don't think I'll book Royal Air Maroc again."
Pros: "Decent food"
Cons: "flight needs wifi - larger selection of films."
Pros: "It was a comfortable flight and the staff were helpful."
Cons: "The vegetarian option one way was bland."
Pros: "Nice stuff, good food ..service too"
Cons: "I cant remember"
Pros: "The airline itself is pretty decent. The food is good enough. The dreamliner is a joy to fly. Entertainment at the seat is pretty good as well. The crew was friendly even though their english was quite hard to understand on the PA system. What I do like is that the crew does not sit there badgering you about cell phones and the like. Boarding could definitely be improved. It is like one huge gaggle of people when they ask to board. At least the flight operates on time."
Pros: "The weather"
Cons: "All but the weather"
Pros: "reasonable prices"
Cons: "Terrible experience. Never flying this airline again. Long security lines at Casablanca, the food was mostly bread and carbs-very little protein or vegetables, entertainment system was broken the entire flight, flight attendants rude and do not respond to call lights. My seat in the back was broken. Casablanca airport was stuffy and congested. People were smoking in the building."
Pros: "Ticket price and Non-stop flight to Casablanca from Dulles."
Cons: "Surly Flight attendants. Crowded flight conditions. Food is horrible and ran out of dinner options."
Pros: "I liked that it was a non-stop flight to Morocco. The service is rude and unprofessional, and the flight offering was minimal."
Pros: "boarding was easy, comfort was normal for an airplane"
Cons: "food was meh and cabin crew did not attend to people when they pushed the attendant button"
Pros: "Crew is excellent. Boeing 787 is a great plane. Would fly again."
Cons: "Entertainment system had many instances where streaming was lagged, bugs causing it to pause/stop play, required reboot midflight. Also, limited selection."
