Pros: "Crew was good but only one thing I don’t know why before landing 30min crew starting collect blankets and headsets it’s making me so upset!"
Cons: "Attitude of some of the cabin crew very bad. Service was poor and with short comings. With Emirates either the service is very good or very bad. They need to get rid of the dead wood!"
Pros: "There was almost a two hour delay, there wasn’t any information communicated, everybody was just asked to take seats in the waiting area. The entire process wasn’t very well organised."
Cons: "This crew was much better. Smiling, happy and helping."
Pros: "everything from security check, boarding, crew, food was excellent, I have no complaints about my trip from Dubai to NewYork, I wish it was the same between Mumbai to Dubai..again Emirates need to train their staff @ Mumbai airport, It was one of my bad experience ever on any airlines or airport."
Cons: "everything is great, no reason to complain."
Cons: "Mechanical problems delayed the flight 1 1/2 hours. Other than that, the flight was good."
Cons: "This company í overrated. Obvious lack of organization in the boarding process that led to a late departure. Not a sympathetic crew, which had to be reminded the protocols (upright seats before take off) while being inflexible on other things. Chaotic food service. Average entertainment."
Pros: "Everything was amazing, I would say best airlines from Male to Dubai. Crew is super amazing as well."
Pros: "."
Cons: "."
Pros: "Crew, food, seats were great (my route was empty on the first flight, so I could lay down across other seats). They provided amenity kids even in economy class."
Cons: "The connection was too tight. A staff member led us to a bus to the next terminal, but left at security without a word. I ended up running from security all the way to my gate, feeling I was going to miss my flight. They still had the gate open past the scheduled time, but wish I didn't have to run."
Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "The food and the crew way of speaking to people"
Pros: "Everything Was Just Perfect"
Pros: "Everything was great"

Pros: "Cold meal was nice, standard business class, no amenities. Nice crew, welcome on board."
Cons: "The crew was in a constant hurry after. The meal was ok, but no cocktails served. Tablet was not working remotely, it has to be connected to the dock all the time. USB port was also not working, did not charge my phone. I’m glad that we did not buy the business upgrade for his flight before. It would felt wasting all our points. Luckily we were upgraded during check in. Check in was awful, they checked in 4 people in front of us roughly in 20 minutes in MLE. It felt like waiting for forever."

Pros: "as usual the ICE system keeps you entertained"
Cons: "we were greeted by a swarm of mosquitoes and then the flight attendants sprayed bug spray multiple times which was terrible given it is an enclosed space. The mosquitoes never went away so the only reprieve was when we finally exited the plane. Awful."
Pros: "The food and the ICE video center"
Cons: "The fact the crew lets people stand around in front of you in the Exit row. For what Emirates charges for this added “luxury” it’s ridiculous."

Pros: "The air conditioning worked properly"
Cons: "You asked for a drink and they never return☹️"
Pros: "Service is fantastic and all the amenities. They pretty much think of everything. The warm towels at the end of the flight, the travel bag for the long international trips were perfect. The staff is very welcoming and helpful and we were in economy so I can only imagine what it must be like in First Class! Also the free entertainment is phenomenal- wide range of choice. We also enjoyed the outside cameras that help you see views from the outside. Pretty cool!"

Cons: "Emirates overbooked the flight and we were bumped."
Pros: "First time on Emirates. Love the entertainment system and the staff is friendly and incredibly professional. Will travel Emirates whenever I can if I am traveling internationally."
Cons: "No one weighted my cabin bag while checking in. Before the security control, Emirates ground staff stopped me and weighted my cabin bag that was 8.4, around a kg extra. They didn't allow me boarding until I threw 4 shirts to the garbage and I reduced the weight. Staff was just unbelievably rude."
Pros: "Crew couldn't have been friendlier!"
Cons: "We were allowed down the jet way to board only to come to a closed plane door - waited for at least 5 minutes for plane door to be opened. Crew seemed tired and disengaged. Walked on the plane asked crew how they were and got less than good reply. In flight woman never smiled, overall crew seemed tired and as though they did not want to be there. Perhaps SFO based crew on way home? Tired from flight over to Dubai? But it was really noticeable and a real difference from the flight over to Dubai from SFO 2 weeks earlier."
Pros: "I watched movies the entire time."
Cons: "I didnt like that i had to sleep on metal chairs at Maldives outside airport. My layover was 11hrs and 35 mins and enirates didnt accommodate me at all during the wait. Not even a meal voucher. Talked to a guy named Ishmael Shinad and he was beyond useless. Wasnt the happiest person on flight."
Pros: "Confy"
Cons: "19H i guess, window seat's screen was not working"

Cons: "nothing!"
Pros: "Best Airline and services"
Cons: "Best Airline and services"
Cons: "No"
Pros: "food"
Cons: "spray"
Pros: "It's not horrible; just not up to world class standards of Singapore, Virgin, Emirates, United, or top airlines."
Cons: "Business Class: You have to place your order for all food and drink at the start of the flight because the flight attendant disappears after serving. Want a refill of wine? Tough bananas. Forget to order dessert? You're out of luck."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Need better training."
Pros: "The food was really good. Had the chicken sausage with pasta and mushroom."
Cons: "After travelling from the Maldives and our final flight home from Melbourne to Brisbane, several people had their luggage sopping wet due to rain at Melbourne. Everything inside the luggage was wet. Qantas Customer Service was not empathetic. They said it was only water and bad luck."
Pros: "Crew was excellent as always with the Sri Lankan hospitality."
Cons: "It was an old aircraft and felt dirty. Screens, seats, lavatories, everything was old. There were some really loud and rude passengers behind us causing disruption to everyone around. The crew tried to handle it but the passengers were just not cooperating."
Pros: "Lots of leg room"
Cons: "Food. Screens weren't working properly"
Pros: "Boarding"
Cons: "Foods were not good. Tray and seat was dirty. Sri Lanka should put in International passengers to good hotel and not shady slum hotel."

Cons: "Poor selection of entertainment. Some features, such as the flight tracker, didn’t work"
Pros: "Very friendly and attentive crew. Good entertainment options."

Pros: "Not bad comparatively morning flt kolkata to cmb.crew is good.clean"
Pros: "Crew is amazing with a smile always. It was a new aircraft with nice screens and a good variety of movie selections. Service was excellent as well as the food."
Cons: "I was denied checking in a the counter. I bought the ticket with a friends credit card and they needed to have the actual card to swipe and then only they get access to my booking. It is company policy but it is not stated when you are making the purchase the airlines website. It says so on the bottom of the ticket on the page long rules in small print. And in all honesty who reads all of that these days. The ground crew were nice enough to take me to the airlines office at the airport and figure out a solution. It took an hour and a half to sort it out and get a verification from headquarters office in Srilanka."
Pros: "Check in process was smooth, crew amazing, food excellent and in flight entertainment exciting."
Pros: "All crews they are helpfull"
Cons: "Food same going and coming times"

Cons: "Srilankan airlines did not allow me to board my flight and had the least helpful customer support reps."
Pros: "Uniform of the crew is nice."
Cons: "The service specifically the transfer service. They weren’t helpful at all. I’m so turned off how the staff treated me. It is also not clear that I need to book a hotel thru the airline during my 13 hours transit. I was thrown back & forth like a ball. No help was done. How come an airline imposed such rule?! Worse part during flight I feel cold & asked for a blanket. We reached destination No blanket ever!! Not recommended. First & last!!!"
Pros: "The service and crew were excellent!"
Cons: "The seats weren’t very comfortable but overall the plane was very clean and again the service was impeccable."
Pros: "Acceptable but not exceptional as expected"
Cons: "Unfortunately the it was a bumpy ride as most of the time the seat belt sign was on and crew had to discontinue services for a while. This was beyond airlines control. The crew did not distribute the Sri lankan landing cards onboard. This caused some confusions for first time travellers as they had to cone off the immigration queue and went to pick the card up and to complete. Some foreigners were unhappy about it."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Not enough leg space, cramped seats"
Cons: "There was no uniform procedure in the flights, crew is too lazy to perform their duties. probably the first and last flying with Sri Lankan."
Cons: "We really appreciate your prompt response.Your customer service guidance is supportive for us."
Pros: "comfortable timing for india."
Cons: "1.we seated at UL 604 / 52K video was not updated , one one movie was displayed. 2. Crew was asking options i food ( non veg ) but they ere delivering what they had , question is why they asked option when they don't have option of serving. 3. Crew was pathetic. They discriminate with respect to whites and Indian's. Its really bad."
Pros: "Courteous & helpful crew."
Cons: "Terrible seats and headrests. Highly uncomfortable for an 11 hour journey especially for senior citizens."
Pros: "Staff.. food"
Cons: "SEATS... I flew with other airlines also but this aero plane has worst seats I even sat on.. My travel was of 10 hours and after 3 hours of departure I started having pain in my back...seat was poorly structured. . Its like cushion of seats were dead n on top of it that cushion behind back was too outside.. I was not able to sleep at all as was not comfortable.. Also there was no system at Srilankan airport.. No barriers for travelers so that people stand in cue but no one was following lines as there were none.. Will never fly with Srilankan airlines again ever.."
Pros: "All went well"
Cons: "Flight started on time, landed earlier, nice crew and good food good food."
Pros: "Srilankan Airlines's food was one of the best I've had. I've flown on over 50 airlines and was happy to see that the food was not processed junk as you find in most airlines. The ingredients seemed fresh. The crew were awesome: polite, kind, and considerate. They were eager to accommodate passengers' requests. The jets were new and clean. The entertainment system was touch-screen."
Cons: "The passengers were loud and ill-mannered. They gave the crew a tough time. These complaints, of course, is not a reflection of the airline."
Pros: "Liked the food, the service from the airline, the timings and the pricing of the ticket which was very reasonable given the time of the year."
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "Good veggie food, courteous and attentive staff and, quick transit"

Pros: "Great service and friendly people"
Cons: "The plane was late"
Cons: "i am very dissatisfied for the bad service. my friend and i missed the booked flight, but the online service and counter said they can help me nothing."

Cons: "Food and seating were reasonable for economy, that’s what I paid for."
Pros: "Crew are very polite. Fast response."
Cons: "Entertainment for movies no so much update."
Pros: "Kayak services very good"
Cons: "Kayak services very good"
Pros: "Staff were very professional and courteous"
Pros: "They have great direct service, and moderately priced. And fantastic flight times."
Cons: "The flight always leaves late from Dubai and from Colombo. Not to any fault of the airline, but screaming babies the entire flight on the way to Colombo was stressful."
Pros: "The staff was super friendly and professional, the entertainment was great for such a short flight and I felt like the airplane was cleaner than normal."
Cons: "Customer service was abismal when I needed to add my infant son to reservations. Spoke with 10 different reps and spent about 2 hours total on the phone. Poor English."
Pros: "Colombo to Male & vice versa by Sri Lankan airlines has been very disappointing to be polite with regard to disgusting food served by them in small cardboard box with no choices whatsoever unlike a standard career nor what they practiced in the past by serving real food chics, not even a cup of tea or copy. Disgracely shocking practice by a national career & not by any means budget airline. Previously Mihiri Air served even better choice of food & drink at moderate prices but price of ticket was at least 50% cheaper. SL Govt with SLA With no regard for passenger comfort nor giving them a reasonabl deal on his sector should be condemned & boycotted. As a regular traveler I will look at Emirates as a better airlines despite with a different time slots still would be cheaper & value FO money. Wake up Sri Lankan Airlines from your slumber"
Cons: "Food of course"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I had excess luggage and I knew I had to pay for it, I was fine with the fee they quoted. I gave them my American Express card and they did not have the facility to charge that card, how do they not have the ability to use s major credit card at the Bangalore international airport??????? They gave me such a hard time I thought they were going to kick me off the plane just because they had short coming. I had no problem paying the quated amount, since they had the short coming they were blaming me. After a lot discussion/arguments I was able to find a Visa card on me and pay for the excess luggage, but its your short coming and not mine as I had no problem paying the fees yet I was treated badly. What if I did not have a Visa card then would I have been kicked out the plane for something the bangalore international airport have problems. No one should be blamed for issues you have. I had no problem paying to fees... you had the problem that you could not use a major credit card, when there are small markets on the street that can use the American Express card. You should be able to charge people American Express card this is a large international airport with loads of expats living and traveling in and out of Bangalore I hope you look into this instead of just asking for feedback and not doing anything about it. Thanks you, Chrishanthi Fernandopulle"
Pros: "Nice flight, attentive crew."
Cons: "My bags were screened three times. Really? Once through security, we were told the gate wasn't open so we were escorted back out. And then had to go through security again. Chaos. No lines just pushing and shoving, people crawling under the rope and cutting the line. No matter the flight, the airport over shadows every thing."

Cons: "Rude passengers who ignored the rules."
Pros: "service"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Old plane"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. People, plane, boarding process"
Pros: "Everything is ok. I am happy."

Nice,o time,and great foods and services.

Cons: "Boarding was a disaster as my companion was selected for random search which held us up as there was no urgency to process us. Then there was no sign for where we should go since upper deck on 747 so we went in "economy" line as indicated on ticket and then was sent to correct line when we got to the front, wasting more time. The seatrs were the most uncomfortable I have ever beeon on for a long flight. I also paid extra to be in the exit row, to have people constantly congregating in front of us."
Pros: "The seats, staff, entertainment, particularly liked that you served hot chocolate! The staff were very polite, friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Food -vegan menu was bad for n the outgoing flight, better on the incoming flight. No vegan food available on domestic fight. Sitting in the aisle seat meant often people pushing past your seat."
Cons: "Boarding (by bus) was a total chaos. I had to stand for about 50 minutes, either on the crowded bus or, after climbing with great difficulty three flights of stairs to a high jet-bridge (I am 76), standing there forever with 200 persons waiting to get access to the plane. Totally unacceptable. They started the boarding process early (50 minutes before departure), but passengers were allowed to actually board the plane at the time it was supposed to take off."
Pros: "The crew was terrific."

Cons: "Baggage took a while to reach baggage claim but maybe a bit impatient after a long day"
Cons: "Na"

Cons: "Business class seating on the AirBus 318 is very cramped."
Cons: "My entire travel experience became extremely rushed and chaotic due to my flight being canceled and me being alerted -LESS THAN AN HOUR BEFORE IT TOOK OFF! This is unacceptable."
Cons: "Long delays to go through security screening and then further delays as the plane was still being fueled at departure time."
Cons: "The food was cold. We were served about 40 minutes after most of the plane got their food. The overhead compartments kept opening by themselves through out the flight. Food was horrible."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 1h30min, so we arrived very late"
Pros: "Direct flight from Indy to CDG is great. The plane was not so full, so I hope business improves so we can keep it going. Very smooth flight, with good and friendly crew."

Cons: "The leg-space is very narrow The chair is very tiring No entertainment at all Food was tasteless But most surprising was that we were on stand by for our connecting flight. Though we bought the tickets months ago and we got our luggage checked in all the way to the final destination."
Pros: "Service was much better than on the flight from MIA to CDG 3 weeks before - that was very poor. Entertainment was excellent - great selection of movies. Premium Economy was definitely worth the upgrade cost."
Cons: "Boarding was a complete debacle - no control over who went where. Sky Priority line was full of 50 people who weren't Sky Priority, and there was only one person checking passports. The two people at the desk didn't care when I noted this. We were called to the desk in advance of boarding to check passport information. When we got to the check in line, we were taken aside for more passport checking, even though we are US citizens with Trusted Traveler status in the GOES program. We were one of the first people at the departure lounge, and one of the the last to board."

Cons: "The crew was requesting to use the toilets at the rear of the plane whereas the one on the front were used by them. That’s totally unfair as there are more passengers than the crew and customer being the passengers should be given more access. The Indigo management should make sure this issue is being taken care of."

Cons: "Airline doesn't provide inflight meals moreover they do not accept Indian currency, the currency half the country from which they are operating. They were accepting credit card to be charged in US dollar or cash in Qatar Riyal for the food amount. I offered to pay through credit card but two cards has failed while third was accepted. There were many passengers who were not carrying case in Qatar Riyal and their cards work not successfully swipe,therefore they remained hungry. This is in human and no airline on international route is allowed to do so"
Cons: "Seats do not recline at all. Worst seats I’ve had in an airline."

IT COST ME ABOUT $67 USD ONE WAY BUT IT COST MY BAG $87 USD TO BE CHECKED IN. Another cut rate airlines that charges for everything extra--soon th toilets!"
Cons: "Flight missed & the passenger is traveling through bus from Bom to Hyd. Very Poor Service. Very disappointed. ☹️"
Cons: "Good"
Cons: "i arrived with 45 mins as requested. Their staff an utter shambles that I feared I miss flight. By that time they said too late (even tho I had time but they didn’t know what they were doing) had to pay an extra £60!!! For their bad management and wait extra 4 hrs!"
