Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The whole experience was amazing. For a long flight, I was expecting to be miserable. But I was oddly satisfied. From the nice spacious seats, the the smorgasbord of food (never been fed so much on an airplane) to the excellent staff service I was impressed. Even the bathrooms were clean!"

They wouldnt listen to my requests to change flights until it was too late. JFK airport put out a notice at 7:30PM stating that they woukd be closed until 7am the next morning. However, i recieved an email from EVA airlines AND Kayak around 9 PM stating that my flight was on time... the airport was closed!! Terrible organization... overall a really bad experience."
Cons: "Airline seemed to be extremely stingy with the food and beverages during my 12hr + flight. Felt like I had to fight for every little bit of extra scrap of food and explain why I needed it. It was also very limited options almost everything in the menu contained pork and if you did not pre-order a meal in advanced then it was hard for you to get anything else to eat. Airline also forces you to take out your headphones from the TV set almost 20 minutes before arriving for some odd reason. And on my flight we had a two hour delay on the tarmac."

Pros: "The seats,movies and food"
Pros: "They were very efficient and did their job well. Entertainment systems worked well, were easy to use and the controls didn't impede use of armrests. I didn't measure the recline but it seemed a little more than typical. The food was very good."

Pros: "The food, service,the smooth take off and landing, less announcements, seats are spacious enough"

Pros: "The best I was ever treated in economy class. New equipment less than-year-old 777 300. nice flight attendants that seem to be concerned about your comfort.The food was actually decent and legroom for this 15 hour flight. American flag carriers watch out.learn from your nationalist Chinese masters"
Cons: "Our first leg of the trip started at JFK with a one year old 777 300, economy was 3-3-3 seating arrangement The second leg from Taipei to BKK was a 3-4-3 seating arrangement on a one month young 777 that was certainly not as desirable"

Pros: "Good flight attendants"
Pros: "Excellent pilots! We met a very tough weather when we took off from Taipei 4/21/17 8pm. I thought it was the end of my life! Prayers, competent pilots, and dependable plane had saved us. To God be the glory!"
Cons: "I was requested to wait for a space for my carry on luggage which is fine. I waited for the FA to tell me where to put it and I placed it myself where she asked me to. Few minutes later, she asked me to move my luggage and to place it to another overhead cabin because she said It's "heavy." I followed the standard size and weight for carry on luggage. Another passenger helped me instead. No place to rest our feet."
Pros: "customer service was superb. very polite staff. amenities made one feel comfortable during the entire flight. food and entertainment was great."
Pros: "Everything was great except that the cabin temperature was too cold. But not a major problem. This was my first EVA flight, and I thought it was great."
Pros: "The crew are very helpful esp. to us who are senior citiizren"

Cons: "Awful seats on Airbus 330 - uncomfortable at best - too small no legroom and packed like sardines Prison food approximates quality of gastronomic fare"
Pros: "The price was less."
Cons: "Not very comfortable."
Pros: "Customer service was outstanding. After a debacle with Jetblue where they cancelled our originating flight, we booked another ticket through Delta to get to JFK. The Delta flight was delayed on the tarmac of JFK for 45 minutes, giving us only 15 minutes to go to the EVA terminal and check in. The terminal was nearly empty when we ran up to the counter. Luckily, the agents had not closed down yet. They attempted to check us in when they realized that the airline cancelled our ticket because our Jetblue originating flight was cancelled. The agents worked furiously to ensure we got on the flight, even communicating with the gate to let them know we were coming. They rebooked our tickets and got us on the plane. We are so appreciative of the EVA staff at JFK for saving our vacation."
Cons: "The food is alright. Equivalent to a TV dinner."
Cons: "Best service"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. Food was great. Clean bathrooms. Great entertainment."
Cons: "We had our passports and boarding passes checked five times in the course of 2 minutes by five different people one after the next. My cabin luggage was searched right before boarding. I appreciate the need for security, but that was excessive and unnecessary. In the peak of the Corona virus craze, the security made all passengers take off shoes and walk without any protection. This is not Qatar Airways doing - New York JFK security B S, but I am sure airways companies have some say to change it."
Pros: "Excellent crew. Very good food. Comfortable seats."
Pros: "The 1-hour complimentary wifi."
Cons: "Hope they had the immigration/arrival card on the airplane."
Pros: "The crew provide good service but personally i did not like the food that could be lot better."

Pros: "Crew was very accommodating"
Pros: "On line flight experience"

Pros: "Airlines' diligence in arranging an alternative flight in place of the missed connection because the initial departure from JFK was delayed due to technical reasons"
Cons: "Much ballyhooed A350-1000 has noisy engines rudely interrupting my enjoyment of the entertainment system - may be my seats were too close to the engines. The seats are not all that comfortable though perhaps wider than usual configuration in economy."
Pros: "Qatar is impressive. The airbus was incredible."
Cons: "It would be noce for flight attendants to give coughing passengers a mask. 12 hours on a flight next to two sick people."
Pros: "Love the service of qattar"
Cons: "Everything was amazing"
Pros: "Legroom was great Staff were great Bathrooms were very clean and cleaned often in the flight"

Pros: "It's was good"
Cons: "The plane from Qatar to Nairobi new modern plane needed"
Pros: "Crew was good, they were trying hard to keep customers happy."
Cons: "Limited food selection on top they ran out of available options so basically only one beef option was given. Either u like it or not. Pretty old movies in entertainment section, broken seat controls, charging ports and headphone inputs. No clear announcements by captain."
Pros: "Worst customer service"
Pros: "Food is good"
Cons: "Economy seat"
Pros: "Professional courteous friendly and communicative"
Pros: "If we had arrived on time everything would have been perfect. However I did not arrive in Johannesburg because a flight delay (even though our flight was set to let ontime) caused probably 40 people to miss their connections. To their credit, Qatar Airways did find accommodations for us and gave us food vouchers. Otherwise it'd be a zero rating."
Cons: "Boarding took far too long and caused us to be an hour late. Because of this, I am missing out on events scheduled in South Africa. This is very upsetting and it appears that Qatar Airways is too slow with boarding, there was no explanation given for why it took so incredibly long to board."
Cons: "It's been more than 50 hours and I still haven't received both of my checked in luggage"
Pros: "Clean. Friendly staff. Good food. Good entertainment."
Cons: "Small cramped seats."
Pros: "Quite journey"
Pros: "The professionalism of the staff"
Cons: "No comment"
Cons: "- Airline changed flight and offered little forewarning for what was a material change (from 1 hour transit time to 9 hours) - Boarding process was inordinately slow with little attempt to move this along quickly - Service was halting at best"
Pros: "Everyone on duty!!"
Pros: "Best Arab airline so far.5 star but if I could give more i would"
Pros: "The crew were nice"
Cons: "The screen of my seat and my mom ( sitting next to me) and the lady near the window stopped working after launching and we had to stair in the dark for eleven hours the flight attendant tried but couldn't fix it. The seat itself was broken and I had to put the bottom Cushing back every time I stand up.the cue to the rest room ( one off them has a broken lock so you can't lock it ) was very long and I had to wait for 25 minutes tell I got in ( the first time I waited too long standing in an air plane )"
Cons: "Ran out of meal options in both flights"
Pros: "Price and schedule"
Cons: "Food. Waiting place at Qatar airport. Arabian crew on board due to their non- friendly attitude."
Cons: "Seats, unfriendly crew members, worst food "Hindu meal""
Cons: "they didn't tell me i couldn't make the flight until i got onto the check in counter. bad communication then and bad communication now too, when i am trying to rebook."

Cons: "Flight from Seoul to Phuket did not have outlets if that is something you require"
Pros: "The seat was comfortable"
Cons: "The vegetarian ovo lacteo food could be much better. Because I am vegetarian doesn’t mean I can’t eat chocolate"
Pros: "Nothing! They made me very upset!"
Cons: "They made me cancel my 6 month stay to a 30 day stay when I arrived at the airport, otherwise they would not allow me on the plane! They said I needed a vista for the length of stay which I always get when I am in Manila for the past 8-10 years that I have been going without any prior warning before I confirmed this booking! I was charged $500.00 to change the departure date! Outrageous!"
Pros: "Friendly, professional crew."
Cons: "Bit of turbulence, but hey that's what happens when you fly."
Pros: "Overall the boarding experience and crew were some of the best I've had. Food was excellent and wine pairings were spot on."
Cons: "The entertainment selection was pretty limited and without Wi-Fi on the flight, it was the only thing available to pass the time. Would have been nice to see a larger selection of things to watch while in transit or available Wi-Fi service to browse on my own devices."
Pros: "Staff and flight crew were all really nice, very professional and attentive. Decent range of video/movies available. 2 meals - ok"
Cons: "Delays on both legs of flight- significant and multiple delays from jfk to icn... made the experience not so great, as my daughters 1st time flying this didn't help - and no compensation at all. Emails and notifications not in english! Not given an actual reason for flight delay. Seats VERY uncomfortable, might as well be no cushioning on the seats in economy. With such long flights you would think that an airline would want even economy to be somewhat comfortable sitting for 14hrs or more"
Cons: "Transfer in Busan is a disaster"
Pros: "The entertainment had a good selection, although the headphones and connection on the armrest wasn't perfect. Also the food had a pretty good selection."

Pros: "Superior attentive and hospitable staff. Will def book them again!!!"
Pros: "The food was good and the service was great. The flight attendants were very attentive."
Cons: "I had to pay $200 for an extra bag because they told me that my bags were all over weight. Come to find out, the scale was broken and my bags were actually underweight. So I ended up with 5 bags instead of 3. My main issue was comfortability. Due to the person behind me, I couldn’t push my chair back and so I had find different ways to sleep."
Cons: "when they leave laugage in korea and they deliver within 2 days"
Pros: "Great friendly staff, good food."
Cons: "Both legs were late, the first nearly making me miss the next. Lost my only suitcase for the trips. Seats are really uncomfortable."
Cons: "NO OUTLETS IN SEATS FOR 14 HOURS AND TV FROM 1990"
Pros: "i like the simplicity. Asiana landed in korea Incheon which i love."
Cons: "i had to pay 200$ for an extra bag which was overweight. maybe it’s my fault but 200$ is a lot"
Pros: "Delicious food."
Cons: "4 hour delay"
Cons: "few new movies in the list"
Pros: "It was nice to know that JetBlue and Asiana are connected. I did not need to claim and check my suitcase for the connecting flights anymore. The entertainment device was also nice."
Cons: "I think JFK rather than Asiana was the issue. It was quite cold inside the boarding area, and the waiting area happened to be unpleasant because of a lack of seats and the noise. The announcements before boarding happened to be annoying. Lavatory happened to become quite messy at the end of the flight."
Pros: "Chair to chair distance is spacious."
Cons: "Being stuck on the runway for more than 7 hrs with "mechanical problems" was to much!! Than getting off & told to wait from 8pm till 3am for next flight had to sleep on the airport floor!! Was told we couldn't leave because no one to check us in at 3am! I'm only 10min away from airport!! Then when I finally got to Manila they left my bags in Korea! I had to wait till midnight before I could get my bags!! So i couldn't get a flight to a smaller island I was heading to! To meet friends they totally screwed my vacation!!"
Pros: "food was ok but. sandwich was the worst i have ever seen."
Cons: "boarding was confusing."
Pros: "Good leg room, clean aircraft, short flight. I'm 6'2" and had good leg room. All you can ask for on a fairly short flight."
Pros: "Service is very polite. Attendants are some of the nicest I've ever met, though their English (and PA announcements, etc) will be a bit hard to understand unless you're used to communicating with folks for whom English is a second language. They're also all softspoken, which is very soothing, but even harder to understand what they're saying! Seats are also BIG and have a great recline (seat and seat back) on the Airbus. Flying on a daytime departure from NYC to ICN I had a lot of empty seats to stretch out on and it was pretty quiet for a long flight to Asia."
Cons: "Seats are HARD! I'm not sure how you even make a hard airplane seat but they've figured it out on the Airbus for sure. The solution: get a second pillow to use as a seat cushion. Solves the problem. Also, the "upgrade" to the bulkhead seat is only good if you have a baby in a carrier or really long legs. If you like having your bags near you, or want to keep stuff at your feet to work on, or like to raise the arm between seats, or have a tray table and pocket in front of you... you won't have any of those in the bulkhead upgrade seat. And the phone customer support simply doesn't know enough English to explain these things properly. Fortunately someone else was happy to switch with me. Lastly, they really don't understand that special meals do not need to lack in flavor. Non-Lactose Meals are super boring in flavor - and there was no reason at all not to serve the bulgogi or spicy pork dishes for the NLML! They seemed surprised when I asked to switch it, which suggests to me that the attendants don't even know what 'non-lactose' means, though they were very sweet about confirming and delivering me my special (bland) meals. But asking for a packet of gochujang solves that problem!"
Pros: "Food was OK but nothing spectacular. Variety of beverage is OK, there was a snack in between meals, overall, the flight is good and by expectation for the price I got for the tickets."
Cons: "the seats are not comfortable,"
Pros: "Great entertainment options. Great service. Delayed flight for 2 hrs"
Cons: "They lost my bag"
Pros: "Food given even though it was a short flight"
Pros: "Great modern, spacious and quiet plane Airbus 380, great entertainment options."
Pros: "service and food"
Pros: "Crew very polite; food was really good; in flight entertainment good; and plane was modern and clean. Most imprtantly our check in agent was very capable and helpful. We had a hard time checking in on line, and as a person in my 60s I very much need an asile seat which she arranged. Check in was extremely efficient in a crowded airport. Would definitley fly again."
Cons: "Check in website not good. Could not choose seats in advance. This could be much better."
Pros: "The food selection is good and the service is tiptop. Highly recommend"
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "2/4 bathrooms were out of order"
Pros: "Crew was nice and competent"
Cons: "Cabin lights went on three quarters into the flight and wouldn't go out and there wasn't enough water"
Cons: "Entertainment console was broken."
Pros: "The flight was on time, the people in the plane were very polite and the movies available were very varied and good."
Cons: "Everything was good."
Pros: "Plane was clean and attendants polite"
Cons: "Boarding seemed very random as no rows were called."
Pros: "Crew were professional, helpful and attentive. Food was good for economy class. I have never seen a plane board so fast and I will fly with them again."
Cons: "Couple inches more leg room."
Pros: "The flight attendants were responsive and polite. The foot rests at the economy seats were a nice bonus. The bathrooms were well stocked and mostly clean. The entertainment was OK. There were mostly action movies which aren't my thing."
Cons: "The check-in line was about an hour long. There were way too few people at the counters for a very large plane. I pre-weighed my bags on scales that weren't being used and moved things around. The really stressful part was my carry on bag. It was overweight and transferred things to my handbag and into my suitcases as much as I could. The only things in my carry on were my laptop and medication. It was still 2 kilos overweight. I appealed to the manager who said I had to check it. Checking a bag with my medication would be dangerous to my health and we know they wouldn't reimburse me for the theft of my laptop. The manager, Yeonju Lee (first name may be spelled incorrectly) was completely inflexible and devoid of compassion as was the check in agent. They said the restriction was due to security measures, which is a lie. I've traveled all over the world with carry on over 20 pounds and there has never been a problem. They said I had to correct the problem in 7 minutes or I would not be allowed on the plane. Ultimately, I almost missed the flight. I had to ask people in the security line if I could go ahead of them. If I can avoid it, I will never fly Asiana again. The seats are hard as rocks which is difficult for a 14 hour flight."
Pros: "The hospitality was excellent and the flight flawless."
Cons: "The migraines from traveling to the other side of the world."
Pros: "It was a very efficient flight. Everything was just quick. The flight crew did everything in a very programmed way."
Cons: "Nothing really"
Cons: "I purchased ticket for my son to travel to and from ROK, on his return he was told the time on his itenary was incorrect and that he needed to contact the airline. He was put aside and the ticket agents continued to help others. My son informed me and I made multiple attempts to call all three of the airlines connected to his flight (Asiana, Haiana, and Jet Blue) who each kept putting the blame on the other airline. No one helped me. I continued to make calls back and forth. My son went in line again as his flight departure time was approaching quickly. He was told the same thing and had to stand aside in the line again. This was his first time traveling alone. I was very concerned and it was at the middle of the night here in the US. I did not sleep throughout the night trying to call for help to help my son on his flight or another flight because he had already missed his flight by this time. The manager for Haiana was only able to tell me that she created a help desk case and they will get back to me. It has been over 24 hours and I ended up paying a thousand dollars for a new ticket to get my son on a flight this morning as he was left at the airport all this time and he needs to be back for school. The ticket cost more than it was for his original round trip ticket and it was the cheapest I could have found after a long search. I really think that we should be refunded this money and deserve an explanation for why my son could not get on his flight because during the phone calls I was told that the flight did leave as scheduled and on time. Please advise."
Pros: "Amazing service, comfortable and clean air craft"
Pros: "I had the economy XL seat and was quite comfortable"
Cons: "Other than earphone (one ear) not working, all others are good. That was the 2nd pair with the same malfunction, so I suggest changing the earphones."
Pros: "Easy boarding procedure."
Cons: "Seat was broken. The seat's back kept returning forward. Not a lot of water and snack we're given for flight this long."
Cons: "I am an average-size person but even for me I found the seats were small and uncomfortable."
Pros: "all long flight is uncomfortable. The crew can help made a big difference. The airline crew seem to be too busy, ignoring when you try to request something. Ignoring you even they saw your coffee smear because desk is too small and slippery. Curtain was close all the time, as if not welcoming people"
Cons: "Crew can help made a better trip by slowing down thing. Snark area should be open all the time."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and helpful (ie, helped me with vegetarian options). Everyone was pleasant and friendly."
Cons: "More comfortable seats, needed a back rest or thicker pillows. Will opt for premium seats in the future."
Pros: "The flight TPE - HAN was fine. The flight SFO-TPE was OK. The seat in premium economy did not recline properly. Service seemed to disappear for several hours during the flight. I am not as excited about using premium economy for my return. The seats in economy look very narrow."
Cons: "Answered above. The seats looked bigger and better but the equipment looks tired."
Pros: "Food and service from staff onboard the flight. Seat was also very comfortable. Overall very good"
Cons: "At check in the staff felt while flying business class that my carry-on bag was too heavy so they asked me to take papers out and just walk with these. FYI I always take a lot of paper with me to read and as it was a 16 hour flight to Taipei and a subsequent flight of 1.5 hours to HongKong that is what I did. Was really ridiculous and upsetting to get treated for a one wat flight payong $2750 like thos"
Pros: "The staff was friendly for a very late and very long flight"
Cons: "Almost 70% of the plain was stuffed into economy seating while 60% of the economy plus was empty and much more spacious. I feel like optional upgrades should be announced when this is the case, especially for a 16 hour flight"
Pros: "Lots of selections on entertainment during flight, good movies and music."
Pros: "Food is awesome!"
Cons: "The seating and the earphones could have been better"
Pros: "Flight went well and was on time"
Cons: "Seats were a bit tight. I sat in the middle with other passengers on either side of me. The foot space was very awkward as there was a metal support from the seat in front of me. One foot had to be placed on either side of the bar, sharing space with each passenger on either side of me."
Pros: "Service, food and amazing plane"
Pros: "Perfect landing. On time!"
Pros: "The staff was nice and very accommodating. The food was good. I was very comfortable the whole time. My ears were fine."
Cons: "I tried a lot of times to check in online but I was never successful."
Pros: "Movie choices"
Cons: "Staff treatment, food, cabin pressure was off, cold temperature, uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Super nice service from the crew on the flight. And the young woman at the check-in counter in San Francisco was terrifically friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Flight was just slightly delayed leaving in both San Francisco and Taipei. But the headwinds (certainly no fault of China Airlines!) made us 45 minutes late in Taipei, making us a little anxious about making connections, especially when we saw the long line to x-ray baggage going from one terminal to the next."
Pros: "Delayed for 24 hours with no compensation, please advise where I can file a complaint."
Cons: "Delayed for 24 hours with no compensation, please advise where I can file a complaint."
Pros: "Crew was great. Food was okay. Great comfortable Flight"

Pros: "Over all a good flight experience. Would use them again"
Pros: "Great service, and attendant is very nice and answers all request promptly. Food is ok."
Cons: "Overall it's a great trip and smooth. The seat of economy class is a little bit tight, but that's probably the standard size of all carriers..."
Cons: "My seat table was broken and couldn't really eat my food without spilling and how people take forever to get off plane and staff doesn't regulate it should definitely make people who have multiple carry Ima wait until people leave to grab alll their stuff from cabin"
Cons: "Entertainment selection movies could be expanded."
Cons: "A bit scary on the landing. Something, maybe the tires, screeched something wicked."
Pros: "I loved the entertainment and seats!"
Cons: "Staff was polite but a bit cold. Good food but not much variety. No non meat option."
Pros: "Speed of checking in process"
Cons: "Only fed us twice during the 15 hour trip. I wasn't the only one who was hungry almost 9 hours after the first meal was served. Other Chinese airlines I've been on fed their passengers 3 times."
Pros: "i like their food."
Pros: "Service was great! Plane amenities were also great for economy."
Cons: "Food could have been better. The beef with rice tasted weird."
Pros: "The service was great. But they didn't really cater much to vegetarians."
Pros: "The crew was attentive and helpful! Good was served three times over this incredibly long flight. It wasn't horrible or delicious as it is airplane food."
Cons: "Wish the seats were more comfortable."
Pros: "Entertainment was excellent and crew very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "It was August and they did not have ac blowing during 14 of the 16 hour flight. So warm I couldn't sleep. The other two hours the ac was too high making it cold...I actually liked that but the woman next to me didn't."
Pros: "Good selection of movies, staff was friendly. Seats were okay, fairly spacious. It was nice that they gave everyone both a blanket and a pillow."
Cons: "Food was extremely salty and the selection was terrible. I was given the same pasta for two meals (first time I had a choice, second time only pasta again). Even the same type of pasta but the second time there was some chicken in it too. It was gross."
Pros: "Comfort, space, movies"
Pros: "The SIN / TPE flight had a nice, new A350"
Cons: "Bathrooms on the SIN/TPE flight were really dirty. The leg rest is too protruded even when not deployed."
Pros: "The food, the plane."
Cons: "Was delayed twice from Ho chi Minh city to Taipei and from Taipei to New York. I didn't miss the flight though"
Pros: "Full range of movies. Lights down much of the flight for sleeping."
Cons: "They don't offer the long flight supply bad with eye mask, ear plugs, tooth brush etc. They don't come around often enough with water or drinks."
Pros: "Good service and facilities"
Pros: "Service of the staff. Not as attentive as I would have liked, but definitely wasn't horrible."
Cons: "Selection of entertainment was poor, comfort was horrible (may be my own fault as i'm tall, but i don't recall getting an option to pick a seat prior), and boarding could have been better."
Pros: "Aircraft wasn't crowded and the staff were great"
Pros: "Boarding went smoothly. Aircraft was on time."
Cons: "No beverage service before meal. No Western choices for meals."
Pros: "Crew and staff were all very responsive and proactive in providing assistance, seed genuinely eager to help. Boarding was fine, and a representative of the airline took initiative to form a preliminary queue at the terminal departure counter despite the airline not having an all-day dedicated counter."
Cons: "While its 4-seat layout was better than some anes' 5 seats in the middle column, the seating was, of course, cramped, and I did not have enough space under the seat in front of me to stow my backpack. I also wish Kayak had included easy means to select seats and special meal options. Apparently to do so requires visiting the airline's own webpage."
Cons: "Check in online process and meal selrction"
Cons: "I did not recieve an itenerary or reciept of purpose. This is very frustrating because it meant that I had to search for flight times and GUESS when my flight would leave. I'm very dissatisfied."
Pros: "Good flight crew"
Cons: "Hard to understand English and didn't exert enough effort to let the connecting flight wait for 5 mins. Had to extend half a day doing nothing in the airport instead."
Pros: "My flight to Taipei was a positive experience. Premium economy was quite an act of kindness to oneself. The seats were roomy and comfortable. Noise canceling headphones are worth the weight in gold. I would recommend the seat as worth the extra money."
Cons: "The food actually was surprisingly poor. The congee simply didn't deserve the title. Sludge perhaps would better suit it. The next meal was much better with the shrimp salad."
Pros: "For such a short flight it was fine."
Cons: "Boarding was later and leaving the runway was late. It was a late flight already so this made it even more tiring."
Cons: "I chose the western style dish - needs improvement."
Pros: "Everything's just fine"
Cons: "My luggages are lost"
Cons: "Using the same airline and terminal, they caused us to miss our connection by not having a jetway to a gate. In the time it took to deplane and bus to the terminal, they caused us to miss the connection. This in spite of the plane being still at the gate when we arrived."
Pros: "My 18 year old son was the one who traveled and it was his first time on this airline - he was very satisfied with the trip."
Pros: "nothing, terrible experience"
Cons: "everything should have been better"
Pros: "The food (two full meals) and amenities provided by Aeroflot was wonderful. Staff was helpful on the flight and provided us with plenty of drinks."
Cons: "We boarded the plane at the time the flight was supposed to depart without explanation as to why there was a delay. Then we sat on the plane for two hours without explanation again. Landed 45 minutes after the originally planned time. Our connecting flight to athens was going to depart in 15 minutes, but left us and 58 other passengers. Poor communication to the passengers and then poor communication or help from the airline. If they would’ve waited 15 minutes, 60 people could’ve made their connection. Instead we have to wait 6-7 hours to board another flight. The customer service at the Moscow airport was sad... only two people at the desk for 60+ customers needing new flights because of their unexplained late departure."
Cons: "US bought carry on case been requested to be checked as a second baggage piece for $100 fee. And then both opened lost and not reached destination."

Pros: "I love Aeroflot"
Pros: "Everything was excellent"
Cons: "They are to strict with the luggage size and the weight"
Pros: "Vegetarian options"
Cons: "They didn't give the yellow cards that every traveller need to fill out. So when everyone got off in Shanghai we had all the booths busy with people trying to fill in the papers. All other airlines just give those papers while people are still in the airplane."
Cons: "Спиртное больше не подают - это большой минус . Так хочется сесть в самолёт , расслабиться , выпить бокал вина , так его даже и в продаже не было!! Стюардессы были не очень приветливые в этот раз . На вопрос ( а его задавали многие как я слышала) последовало -не знаю , нам не докладывают - ( сказано было грубовато). Ну а то что в Москве надо было получать багаж -крайне неудобно , если это не отменят, то думаю что буду летать из США в Минск через Европу."
Cons: "Delay of 4 hours in Moscow"
Pros: "the crew was very good but the food was very bad frozen can't eat it is will never fligh again with this flight"
Cons: "Luggage was lost!"
Pros: "Some of the typical premium economy features in the economy class - like the slippers and eye masks, open snack bar, ice cream between meals, menu for meals."
Cons: "Limited choice in alcohol. No whiskey. No healthy options in snack bar."
Pros: "All went as scheduled"
Cons: "They lost one of my bags at the Moscow connection."
Cons: "I didn’t fly because i try to cancel my ticket but vayama give me hard time. They sad we canceled your ticket but they didn’t after that i try to get new date, they sad you lost your ticket. I newer ever booking kayak and vayama again. Thank you for i lost $700"
Cons: "Passengers were left for international transit"
Cons: "My trip was delay more than two hours"

Pros: "המושבים שהוזמנו היו נחמדים. היתה טיסה נעימה"
Cons: "הטיסה יצאה באיחור. חזרנו בלי המזוודה שנאבדה עוד בהלוך!!! מה איתה, ואיפה הפיצויים על הרכש המיותר ועגמת הנפש?"
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful staff"
Cons: "Did not switch the lights for a long time after ate."
Pros: "Очень вежливый и заботливый персонал, отличное обслуживание, профессионализм летчиков ( мягкая посадка и надежность в полете), прекрасное меню и организация питания в целом, чистота в салоне и туалете, обеспеченность всем необходимым в полете, возможность просмотра фильмов в полете. Класс самолета Боинг 777 нравится. В целом очень хорошее впечатление от полета, гораздо лучше, чем от полета на Дельта и Юнайтед в США."
Cons: "Неточность в исполнении расписания ( скорее всего не зависит от аэрофлота). небольшой выбор фильмов для просмотра."
Pros: "the aircraft"
Cons: "almost no english anouncements"
Pros: "Frendly personal!!"
Cons: "no comments"
Pros: "Good movies on board."
Cons: "Boarding was late, take off was late, I almost missed next fligt, my luggage arrived to my final destination only day later"
Cons: "Line for check-in was extremely long at JFK (New York) which it seems caused boarding to be late. It's good that I had time to catch my connection in Moscow."
Cons: "They didn't ship my baggage. And I had to wait for it for a couple of days. They airplane landed very fast and I it caused a headache."
Pros: "everything was perfect"
Cons: "DELAY FOR 1.5 HOUR IN jfk"

Cons: "The bread... my GOD, who can eat this??"
