Pros: "Excellent"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Had a broken seat it didn’t recline...."

Cons: "I started my journey from JFK with Emirates and before booking ticket I checked with customer care representative regarding the baggage allowance and I was told that I am allowed to carry up to 55 inch . I just carried 43 inch tv weighing 19lbs and one check-in baggage weighing 21kgs and they made me pay 175$ saying that tv size is not in allowed limitations. I have also filed complaint but didn’t get any response so far . Last year my husband carried 55 inch with ethihad from same airport JFK and was not charged single penny. so I can say there is no airport restriction as well."

Pros: "Flight crew was very friendly and helpful, seats were comfortable, entertainment options were plenty, and food was excellent. Would definitely fly again and recommended to others."
Cons: "Check in process was a little slow, since they do not have self service kiosks for those who are not checking bags. However, ticket staff was very friendly and helpful. Boarding was a tad chaotic, since they do not have separate lines for each group."

Cons: "No proper communication provided on gate about the delay. Meal voucher was given very late and hence did not make any sense. We were completely uncertain about our onward travel since no information was available till we reached Dubai which was very frustrating."

Cons: "boarding was rather disorganized mob scene"

Pros: "Overall satisfactory"

Pros: "Same as above. If I make this trip again I would only fly Emirates. Have told everyone how wonderful my flights were."

Cons: "Boarding was just a little delayed."

Cons: "The delays"

Cons: "1: This is related to HORRIBLE experience traveling to Dubai from Ahmedabad on Saturday (EK 202 11 PM/ EK 538). EK 202 – delayed by 24 hours Issue:FROM 3 HOURS INFLIGHT SITTING, RETURNED LUGGAGE, HOTEL FOR 4 HOURS, 12 HOURS OF WAIT TIME ON AIRPORT DOING NOTHING EK 538 – delayed by 6 hours Issue:FROM 3 HOURS INFLIGHT SITTING, 6 hours delay. I booked the flight with Emirates because of their better service even though Price doesn’t matter, but I didn’t expect this bad. No rest from Last 48 hours due to HORRIBLE experience with emirates and Flight delayed. I am surely looking for some king of refund in the ticket since it was really bad experience. It took 48 hours to reach from JFK to AMD (It supposed to be 20-22 Hours). Do you think Should I fly with emirates Again? If yes give me One reason. Thanks. Any feedback appreciated."

Pros: "Unlike most reviewers, I never have a good experience with Emirates.However, Crew (this time) was very accommodating and did their best to make this a comfortable trip."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed about 45 minutes. We were called to board but left standing in the tunnel while ground crew cleaned. We began to taxi and people were still storing their luggage and walking around."

Pros: "Lots of food. Ok about giving out water between meal service"
Cons: "Aisles were very tight so hard to pass people when leaving/queuing for toilets."

Cons: "Nil"

Cons: "I requested (at least 2 months ago) for a cake for my daughters Birthday which was on July 5th. I made the request over phone calling customer service in NY. Unfortunately it was not honored. When I called 2 days before the flight departure just to verify, I was told by the telephone Representative that the request was cancelled by Emirates as it was not entered properly ( ? ). And she can not do anything about that. Though the request was entered by Emirates Employee and Emirates just cancelled the request and did not bother to notify me. My daughter was so upset and was crying , and nothing I could do to make her happy. I will never fly Emirates again."

Cons: "Want to be a millionare English version"

Pros: "Beautiful plane, lots of room, nice lighting, soothing colors, friendly staff, better meals, nice toy pack for my daughter."

Cons: "Something was wrong with the boarding process. Not sure what, but we were pacing on the jetway to the plane for 30 minutes or so. People were so eager to get on, but for some reason, they asked people to board in specific sections, when they weren't ready, or the people needing extra time had not gotten settled yet."

Pros: "The fly was fine as usual"
Cons: "Not Emirates fault but they open my bags and made a mess with the presents for my family"

Cons: "Wasnt able to sit next to my wife on my honeymoon"

Cons: "We were not able to print the online checking ahead of time, so we had to stand in a lot of very long lines. The person printed the wrong boarding passes because they didn't know many details about domestic and international flights. There was also confusion about checking in the luggage between the domestic and international flights. A boarding pass from Dubai to Ahembadvad was not given at the New York airport."

Pros: "I would like Emirates to put more sport current videos in entertainment otherwise the handling of layover in Dubai was very good"
Cons: "Nothing so far"

Cons: "Landing should be more smooth."

Pros: "Slept well thanks to headrest wings. Everything to stir myself a double martini cheerfully provided gratis in Economy."
Cons: "Nada."

Cons: "N/a"

Cons: "i didnt have monitor in front of me"

Cons: "See above comments"

Pros: "High end crew"
Cons: "Food and spaces between seats"

Pros: "Turkish airlines is the best"

Cons: "The aircraft arrived late in Istanbul for the connecting flight to Egypt causing us to miss out flight which made us wait 5+ hours in the airport which was a huge inconvenience."

Pros: "Best crew, clean, well maintained, good flight experience"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 1:30 hrs Not much info was given"

Pros: "Quality service and efficient"

Cons: "The service was bad and the fly attendant was mean and not helpful and gave me attitude."

Cons: "I attempted to cancel this flight and arrange to use the same route within a year, but when Oct 3 came, nothing had been done. I called as I had before to Justfly and was then told that I had to use the ticket by the date I purchased it (3/26) . I should have just done nothing as when I cancelled the ticket, it cost me another $100l. I will not use Justfly again. I am out more than $1000."

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Plane was hot on the flight going TK 6. Flight on the way back TK 5 was much better."

Pros: "The friendliness and the ease of flying alone."

Pros: "Food, leg room and entertainment options, plus the service"
Cons: "-"

Cons: "I was disappointed that the two female flight attendants on my side (seats A&B) did not come across friendly, and any request appeared to be a bother. At one point I requested bread and butter, the flight attendant seemed annoyed and said if she can find some, and never came back to me. I went to the galley, where a male flight attendant was working on something. I requested some bread and butter from him, was met with s smile, and was able to locate a roll and butter for me in under a min. Please note, I do not think this was a gender issues, it just happens to be the situation with this case, and I specified it as I do not know the names of the flight attendants, but the airline should be able to identify who was working the different sections."

Cons: "Every flight is late boarding and taking off, connections are too close together and the set up of Istanbul's airport is nonsense. If you don't miss your connection it's because you ran and the flight took off late. Boarding is rushed because they started late"

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "After bus arrived at steps kept on it 20 mins. 2 more buses arrived in this time. Still wait. Then let out all at once. Massive queues to board. Poeple not dressed for this. Poor babies crying Maybe 15 mins waiting in 2am cold on tarmac."

Pros: "Crew was very helpful!"

Pros: "Overall experience"

Cons: "It was nice"

Pros: "The landing"
Cons: "The crew nasty stwarts"

Pros: "The landing."
Cons: "My special meal had been canceled."

Pros: "Great service, great food and drinks"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "The food and boarding went fine."
Cons: "There was no air in our section of the plane. The entire flight from Houston to Istanbul was miserable. It was 85 degrees or higher, and every chance we got to complain to a flight attendant was met with dismissal. We were told they were trying to fix it, but really there's nothing they could have done, and they shouldn't have made it sound like if we just waited a little the problem would get fixed. Not only was it hot, but there was no actual air flow of any kind, and as a person with Asthma this was extremely uncomfortable. Our section was right behind the first class section, and the flight attendants kept trying to keep us separated with the curtains, even though the only way we were getting any air was from that cabin. We consistently requested them to leave the curtains open in the hopes that some air would make it's way to us, but there was little change. Some families with newborns were moved to first class, and some passengers were able to scout out and find other available seats throughout the plane, but for the majority of us in that section, we had no air, and were treated very poorly for as much discomfort as we were going through. There was no apology and little acknowledgement to the problem at hand and I felt personally very disrespected by the whole experience."

Pros: "Same as the first flight. Entertainment is good, foods good, crew was nice, USB charging is great."
Cons: "Kinda annoyed that it was a two prong plug for the headphones. It was super hot and I couldn't rest. Not a lot of space beneath seat in front for personal items."

Pros: "I'm still in turkey. Never flying your airline again delayed missed connecting flight."
Cons: "Everything it was awful. Late"

Pros: "Business class experience was delightful"
Cons: "Indian and Pakistan movies were missing from entertainment channels"

Cons: "i am allergic to cheese and there is no other food selection. Hostess skipped serving my husband meal through out the flight unless asking the hostess. We had 1hr 30 minutes to walk to transfer flight and pass through customs and checking points . we did not have enough time .most of the time we ran to catch up the flight"

Pros: "Turkish airlines is a very friendly airline. They did a good job of making sure people were taken care of."
Cons: "I was traveling with a group and wasn't able to be seated with my group for any of my flights including a 12 hour transatlantic flight. For whatever reason, I couldn't actually check in for my flight and select seats prior to arriving at the airport. This happened with each ticket I purchased through every other agency except for orbitz.com. Not sure if that was a Turkish Airlines issue or a kayak.com issue, but it was very frustrating. When we arrived at the airport, we could no longer be seated together because everyone else had already checked in online and selected their seats for an overbooked flight. One of my group members was issued a standby ticket and almost didn't get on one of the flights that we paid a lot of money for. I would call this travel experience subpar, but I don't entirely blame Turkish Airlines for this."

Pros: "Friendly crew. They even offered complimentary hot food on our 1 hour flight"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "same as my experience to Istabul, ths was a connecting flight, I saw their Ad in their inflight magazine, didn't know they were rated #1 6 years in a row. Was pleasantly surprised on how good they were. Comfortable seats, excellent on board service, food better than average, pleasant and professional staff. Try them, you won't be disappointed"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The food was great!"
Cons: "I booked my ticket on Kayak two months prior to the departure date. The whole reason I booked it with Turkish Airlines was because the seats were listed as "lay flat". So I paid $150 more over the other airlines for the lay flat seating on my 8 hour flight from Katmandu to Istanbul and another 10 hours on to JFK. Well the seats weren't lay flat so I feel like I got played by Kayak and didn't have a very comfortable flight."

Pros: "Kind and professional staff, smooth check-in procedures, comfortable flight."
Cons: "I guess this is not related to the TK airlines itself, but once passengers check in and about to board, there is not toilet, so if you need that facility, you have to go out and through the security screening again."

Pros: "The security check before boarding pass was good But still not as great"
Cons: "Not clean passengers at all"

Pros: "loved that i got a free hotel stay because of a long layover - very useful for relaxing before my next flight."

Pros: "Crews were very nice helpful"
Cons: "Airline is poor., Lost many luggage. Airport congested, too expensive for airport quality."

Cons: "Cramped seating"

Pros: "Food, service, toiletries, entertainment"
Cons: "Airlines cancelled flights out of Rome and made several changes to our return flight which caused us to stay 22 hrs long layover in Istanbul. We had to make several long phone calls to ensure we can get the connecting flight from istanBill to San Francisco."

Pros: "Appreciate highten security checks giving "secured" feelings to passengers."
Cons: "Asian vegetarian meal was not as good for inbound flight as it was for outbound flight."

Pros: "The seats were comfortable, the food was aiight, the stewards and stewardesses were pretty chill. There wasnt a lot of turbulence."
Cons: "The food was interesting. I thought it could be a smidgen better. I had a layover that was ungodly long, but I guess that's scheduling not flying."

Pros: "I Like the food and movies"

Cons: "All was generally ok ..."

Pros: "I like Turkish Airlines. The flight was good. I thougt only food was somewhat not as good as usual. I flew with TA many times and the food offerings always had stood out from other air companies. In general it was great flight."

Cons: "Refused to refund cancelled flight"

Cons: "My seat was terribly uncomfortable. The airplane temprature was really low that it made me so sick. I had a missing luggage where i did not hear any updates from Turkish Airlines for 5 days. I ALWAYS fly Turkish Airline internationally when going to Turkey. But after my last experience, i am not so sure"

Pros: "Everything operated fairly smoothly on the flight. Service was very good."
Cons: "Boarding was haphazard, no use of group numbers. They ran out of one selection for dinner less than halfway through the plane. My entertainment screen froze about 2 hours into the 9 hour flight and they couldn't/didn't reset it though I asked several times, so I read a book instead. I will say this was the exception flight out of the other 3 I have had with Turkish. On those, I encountered no issues."

Pros: "Wide variety of movies."
Cons: "Firstly, our daughter's personal TV monitor stopped working about an hour into the flight. We asked for the TV monitor to be fixed on three different occasions and nothing was done about it so we had to share our monitor for the remainder of the 10 hour flight. Secondly, we were the last to be served even we though we were seated in the middle of the plane. When they finally got to us they didn't have anymore of the selection that we wanted so we had to settle for what was left. When we finally got our food it was ice cold! We had to ask for another plate. By this point we were starving and very upset. Overall, our experience wasn't the most ideal."

Pros: "I liked the fact that they gave us two meals and offered drinks three times. I have gone on a different airline that charged for everything and wouldn't even sell water."
Cons: "The main dishes were okay and so were the desserts. For some reason the side dishes were weird and didn't taste as well."

Pros: "The flight out of JFK was late. I was seated way in the back. If the steward had not thought to offer me an empty seat way up in the front, I would not have made my connecting flight."
Cons: "my seat back did not recline."

Pros: "It's the first time we use Turkish Airline and ,the ride was pleasant and comfortable, crew is friendly , meal was tasty ..."

Pros: "The food was very nice, living up to their reputation."
Cons: "The in-flight entertainment machine was not very user-friendly. Mine broke early in the flight and it took a couple attempts of telling the crew to get them to fix it. Legroom wasn't particularly great either for such a long flight - my knees were at the front seat immediately, and I'm not particularly tall (under 6 foot)."

Pros: "Adjustable headrests, excellent crew service, good food, good price."
Cons: "Confusing security gate access at Ataturk airport, tight seat space for a long flight (not enough legroom)."

Pros: "Fast. Tasty food. Good movies. Great Service."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "The warm towel given for the hands and face at the beiginning was a nice surprise treat. Great also that blankets and headphones were provided."
Cons: "More food variety as some items ran out as they got to the back of the plane"

Cons: "Flight was delayed for an extra 2 hrs, with inadequate refreshments. Plane wasnt clean and had musty smell."

Pros: "Crew was attentive, punctual, and third meal on a 14 hour flight is right."
Cons: "Movies are badly dated, and a bit limited in choice. System was a bit difficult to navigate, and slow to respond."

Cons: "Seating"

Cons: "The issue was not the flight. It was the cancellation policy. I had a best friend suddenly die and I could not apply a credit to future travel on my 4000$ business class seat. It makes me not want to buy through kayak again."

Pros: "Staff was friendly and professional."
Cons: "The quality of the food. You pay a lot for a ticket, for that pricem, I just don't expect a croissant (no butter or jam included) and a dry cake. Flight would normally leave at 7.30 AM. A normal time for an airline to serve some kind of decent breakfast for the price you pay. Not at KQ. They are not making friends this way. Am not even talking about emails going unanswered for days with very specific questions: how to book extra luggage allowance. Anyway…"

Cons: "More legroom, seats with more cushion and recline, better food!"

Cons: "All is well."

Pros: "The journey from Yaoundé was great. The crew was excellent. Part of food needs improvement. The journey from Nairobi was good and we arrived earlier than expected."
Cons: "The flight for on Nairobi, had no entertainment, nowhere to charge cellphones."

Cons: "I am waiting at the airport to catch a flight tonLusaka. This is because I was bumped off my floor flight that I have no seat. Not sure when I will get ion that flight."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "You cancelled my trip without informing me and I need to be rembushed Me transportation to Logan airport and going back for six people and 16 bags please"

Pros: "The pilot on the airlines updated us that we were running 15 minutes late and would try to make up some time in the air. He also apologized on behalf of the crew for our delay and communicated that it was because the aircraft arrived late from the previous flight. I appreciated that clarification."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by 3:15 hours, and our gate wasn't listed on the monitors. Our gate location changed twice, and the only way I found out was by asking the "Kenya Airways Guest Services desk" twice. The overhead announcement of the gate change happened 15 minutes after the boarding time listed"

Cons: "The food, horrible, I would like to describe but not going to do it. Rather get something at the airport before boarding, no space on the plane enought, the seat distance has been squeeze, I guest to accomodate more sheeps ( not seats) on the plane."

Pros: "Crew was amazing"

Pros: "No delay."
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "Should add more updated content in their inflight entertainment"

Pros: "Crew was amazing! Elvis smelled good!!!"

Cons: "The snacks were basic and tasteless"

Pros: "The crew was professional and gave me undivided attention. The food was good. I enjoyed the flight"
Cons: "Cabin crew could have checked up on me more often for anything I would need inbetween the meals"

Cons: "The food could be improved and the movie collection could be updated"

Cons: "It was really great flying with them"

Cons: "By far the most uncomfortable and crowded plane I’ve ever taken."

Pros: "Fairly comfortable, good food. Good service, friendly boarding crew."
Cons: "My luggage was moved from the overhead compartment to another compartment much further from where I was seated. I was not informed of this and was not aware. I had to wait for all the passengers to leave while the cabin crew searched for the back. This was most unpleasant and stressful."

Pros: "Flight went on smoothly"
Cons: "Food needs improvement"

Pros: "Service was good and flight was smooth"

Cons: "I’m still in Nairobi because they delayed the plane"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Staff very friendly"

Pros: "On schedule"
Cons: "Food Sitting Staff - one of the crew members was particularly rude to another passenger on my row."

Pros: "All fine..."
Cons: "uncomfortable as usual on this kind of planes"

Pros: "Clean planes, everything (for me) ran on-time"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit "hectic", could be improved. Toilets got progressively worse as the flight went on (should be cleaned regularly). On 1 flight the meal trays stayed on the tables for over an hour (after the meal was served), should have been collected faster"

Pros: "Great job by entire crew"
Cons: "outdated uncomfortable seats, no cell phone charging available which is needed for international travel. This must be fixed asap."

Pros: "Same as above"

Pros: "We missed our flight from Nairobi to kigali by 2 min. They wouldn’t hold the plane for us. We have to wait in yheairport for 7 hours. Got nothing. Very dissapointed. Bad customer care."

Pros: "The check-in and in-flight service were up to expectations. Friendly, efficient and professional"
Cons: "The 737 is too old and the business class seats need to be changed. They did not recline fully and the door rest also could not be extended completely. Consequently, the seating and resting postures were extremely uncomfortable."

Pros: "The crew was professional and friendly."
Cons: "My flight was delayed. The gate changed at least four times with no clear announcement."

Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Broken, dirty toilet on board. No control of how much hand luggage bought on board. Broken seats. Dirty."

Pros: "Trip on the Dreamliner to/from Nairobi/Joburg went very smoothly. Entertainment was limited but worked and was fine for a 4 hour trip. Food was nothing great but nothing disastrous, booze was handed out willingly, staff were efficient, plane was on time - I rate it higher than SAA for the same leg and would choose KA again."
Cons: "Expensive at $800 but limited choice in Africa so what can you do?"

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "The crew on the ground and flight crew were very friendly. The flight took less time than I had thought and this forced the cabin crew to rush with serving the snacks."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "35 minute departure delay with not even an attempt at an explanation. Broken seat. Cramped."

Cons: "hospitality"

Pros: "Kenya Air had a nice plane, nice snack, and good service on board the flight."
Cons: "Zanzibar's check in process was atrocious. The systems were slow, so it took forever to get through the queue. Then we were told we had to check our carry one because they were just over weight. They didn't tell us that upon arrival in Nairobi we would have to leave the secured area, go out, pay the visa fee (cash only), get the bags on the carousel, check in at the front, and go back through security again."

Cons: "After my transfer in nairobi, my luggage was lost and when my luggage tag was entered, there was no record of where my luggage is. Platinum on skyteam and no one can help...Kenya airways strikes again. Just glad they didn't last minute change the flight to go to Bujumbura first like they did with my outbound flight."

Pros: "Overall it was fine. However there were some downsides..."
Cons: "One of our bags didn't make it. Also, the plane left late for some reason. We weren't sure why they didn't start letting us board sooner. Finally, the airport in Nairobi is dangerous when early morning planes arrive. Arriving passengers who are in transit are ushered down an escalator where they are pushed into one another because of a security line backup...yet the escalator just keeps bringing more people. This happened to us in Nairobi in the early morning of July 26 and again in the early morning of August 2. I feared someone would be trampled or hurt."

Pros: "All in all was good -"
Cons: "three of us were travelling together with 3 bags. Two bags didn't come - they were left in Nairobi. We were in Nairobi more than 3 hours so it should have been enough to get the bags on the plane. This is super frustrating - also can Kenya Airways not deliver bags in nairobi if they left them. I do understand when flight connections are tight etc, but this wasn't."

Cons: "it was okay"

Cons: "Food was terrible throughout Seat was tight"

Pros: "Ground check-in, onboard staff, plane comfort were all fine and what normally happens. Nice leather seats and space on Embraer plane."
Cons: "At check-in we were told the departure time was an hour late - when I arrived at 2:00am. As I only had 1 hour and 55 minutes in Nairobi before flight to Johannesburg, I was a bit concerned and had to rush from plane to departure gate. Pilot said flight was late due to " plane arriving late", which I think meant - it isn't our fault."

Cons: "The flight was 5 hours late, we were not informed while waiting or why it was late. It was very frustrating, especially that Nairobi airport has no free wifi. Kenya Airways is not to the standards of other Sky Team companies."

Pros: "Crew were extremely professional"
Cons: "The seats were less comfortable for me"

Cons: "First of all, my flight had no option to plug my cellphone, there was no TV screen and no WiFi.. they served some loaf of bread cut in half with some spices inside and called it dinner! But the most disappointing thing is the fact is that they LOST BOTH OF MY LUGGAGE BAGS, and the most they could offer me is $50 compensation (my belongings worth thousands of dollars) And even this I would have to claim from my “home country” which is completely unreasonable as my home country isn’t the one lost my luggage, the airlines had! Beyond shocked, disappointed and aggravated, this was my first time flying this airlines and I promise you it’s the last. Won’t recommend to anyone."

Pros: "This was our first time experience and we appreciated the dedication and the level of safety the crew administered, especially during this time of Covid 19. Thanks"
Cons: "Just keep up the good work."

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Staff behavior & regular check on entertainment system as my screen was not working in 9 hr long journey"

Cons: "Punctuality. Time is off the essence."

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"

Cons: "Online check in was not possible. The check in and boarding process took more than two hours and there was no order."

Pros: "Punctuality in Punctuality"
Cons: "Everything's is ok"

Pros: "No problems"

Pros: "I appreciated the amount of movies offered as well as its variety. I also liked how often they brought drinks and snacks. The airline crew was very helpful to passengers."

Cons: "Entertainment is non existent. Plane is tatty."

Pros: "Excellent crews"

Cons: "Was nice best"

Pros: "The flight from Newark to Abidjan was pretty comfortable and smooth"
Cons: "Once in Abidjan, it became a mess. First we were left waiting for over an hour without any explanation. Then we were told that we had to retrieve our baggage and then recheck them. Hardly anyone spoke English so that was a long and confusing ordeal."

Cons: "Old flight - equipments were not in order like the handrest was broken, TV’s were broken and not functioning, touch screens failed to react to touch, signs on buttons at the handrest were smudged. 3 out of 6 washrooms in Economy class were not working. At one instance I was locked in the washroom as the door was not opening from inside, until I had to call the attendant. Entertainment options were limited. Food was below average. In one of my meals I got opened and melted butter. Cabin crew was not responding to the calls when I needed water. I finally got it after ringing 4 bells and 45 minutes. Overall, a terrible experience and would not choose to fly with Ethiopian again."

Pros: "Helpful crew."

Pros: "Flight time changed without notice. Delays in Medinah caused us to miss our connecting flight to Johannesburg. Really poor communication. No agents would take calls in Jeddah. Really terrible service. Would avoid using this airline at all cost. Not the first time I've been delayed by them"

Pros: "Lots of leg room, pillows, blankets..."
Cons: "Breakfast was cold and runny eggs, not so nice. And no vegetarian option offered."

Cons: "No entertainment available. Rude flight attendants."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Good not that great - a suggestion - why not something like fresh bread (sandwiches) with cheese and tomato on it - bread often not so fresh"

Pros: "Plane was spacious and flight crew were nice"
Cons: "The fact that they confirmed that my luggage would make it to my final destination, and now that I arrived in dakar with no luggage it’s no longer there responsability"

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "The experience from the airport to the plane to Lome was beyond troubling. If ever you are flying internationally from NYC, never fly from Newark New Jersey. Nevertheless, upon boarding the Ethiopian Airline flight to Lome that was supposed to depart at 9:15 pm, the courtesy of the flight attendants was a bit mundane. My mother and I sat on the plane for about an hour after the time of the depart before inquiring why we have no moved and the doors were closed. The flight attendant responded with, "We shall be moving shortly." The air conditioner was barely on. My mother is battling stage 3 Cancer and is an older woman so, I feared for the safety of her health in such a condition. About 30 minutes passed, and we inquired again. This time with a different flight attendant and she said she just did not know what was going on. Other people on the plane began to panic in a sense as well because like my mother and I, they too had a connecting flight to catch. The pilot did not inform the passengers of what was occurring. So, at this point, all passengers on flight ET509 had been sitting on the plane for an hour and a half. By the time we were sitting on the plane for 2 HOURS with the doors closed the pilot finally informed us that they were waiting for some paperwork. He did not apologize or give more information as to why we were sitting on the plane so long, with practically no AC, and weren't informed about when we would be pulling off. About 10 minutes later, the plane began backing up while people were still standing because they were restless with the wait especially when we had a 10-hour flight ahead of us. The pilot then got on the loudspeaker stating that we will be pulling in the air shortly and for the flight attendants to be seated. The pilot did not apologize for the inconvenience or state how long the flight would be or what time we would land in Lome, Togo. Once we were in the air, there were many safety hazards administered by both the crew and pilot. The seat belt safety information was not given, the exit areas in case of emergency were not discussed, what to do in case of an emergency, where certain equipment would be in case of illness or an emergency, and we were still not informed about the cause of the 2 hours and 15-minute delay. My mother and I consistently checked the flight tracker and it did not show the duration of our flight, our location while flying, no flight information was displayed and as hard working paying passengers we should have had all of the information and not have to continuously ask to get a slight answer. Also, I am a vegan and they did not have food for me. But there was a flight attendant who gave me extra fruit which I greatly appreciated. The flight coming back to Newark was decent, going was the major issue. I pray we are accommodated for these great inconveniences. Because to have spent almost $3,000 and receive this type of treatment is both saddening and disturbing to me."

Cons: "The lateness. Very bad. 2h45min late, unbelievable. And also the airhostesses services are very poor. I have to claim more time before they give me water for my food."

Cons: "I used ethiopian on my way back too they told me my bags will go all the way to my final destination and it did not my bags are now LOST!! Crew is not attentive Food was so bad! I ecpexted quality in all areas but not even close."

Pros: "Food was pretty good. Flight attendants were very nice, however they didn’t do too much on a screaming baby that wouldn’t shut up the entire flight."
Cons: "Late take off from Newark led to us almost missing our connections to Johannesburg. We were moving like sheep herded to buses. Seemed very unorganized. The inflight entertainment was very basic compared to other star alliance flights in the states. Can’t understand the pilots very well when they spoke English. P"

Pros: "Flight Attendants excellent and always smiling"
Cons: "Should be able to select your own movie"

Pros: "Plane size, entertainment options and food were all great."
Cons: "The person next to me was rude and leaning over on my side but not much the airline can do about that."

Pros: "I like the entertainment,but the quality is not quite good in Amharic part."
Cons: "The food is very bad."

Cons: "When checking in I asked if I'd need to collect my bags and recheck them for another flight. I was assured theyd make it all the way to my destination and I wouldn't need to re-check it. He was wrong and now I'm trying to find my lost bag."

Pros: "צוות אדיב ורגיש לנוסעים ויעיל"
Cons: "האוכל לא היה מגוון לא הכיל פירות או ירקות טריים , היה מבוסס על אורז ופחמימות, לא הוקרן מסךמסלול הטיסה, לא היו אזניות זמינות"

Pros: "aircraft was nice and well kept, and crew friendly."
Cons: "too many announcements on PA (information could have been summarized and delivered in the beginning, so that those who prefer to sleep can)."

Pros: "It is ok the flight"
Cons: "No comment"

Pros: "The flight was ok, left late but didn't impact our arrival time."

Cons: "Tray table was very dirty, restroom not cleaned or refilled, generally unkempt."

Pros: "Was lucky to be able to get 3 seats in a row, so could sleep.. They were able to put me in 3 seats again on return, so all good for me... Crew nice, leg room decent, entertainment was fine... Movie choices were not best I've seen, but first world problem... Overall I would recommend.."
Cons: "The return journey time from Dublin sucks... 6am flight, so u have to stay up all night pretty much... If they could change that, it would be amazing... Food not great, so you would be better off bringing your own stuff..."

Pros: "The crew very kind and made me feel comfortable"

Pros: "I did like the overall services. I was comfortable with the crew and was entertained. I enjoyed the night over in the fhoice of loudging with nazra Hotel."
Cons: "I didn't like the quality of food in the hotel panaroma on my return. The hotel needed air refreshner as it wae stuffy and difficult to breath in. The reception was excellent but poor service."

Cons: "Customer service was horrible. Cancelled a trip within 24 hours of booking but put me through hours of waiting on the phone for assistance and still charged a 300 dollar fee. Our ticket was somehow suspended BY THEM so we had to call an office in a different country to unsuspeND then we were able to cancel. No help at all and kept dodging responsibility and forwarding the problem to other offices. Would book a different airline to avoid unneeded stress."

Pros: "They made sure we had plenty to eat"
Cons: "My entertainment system didn't work."

Pros: "Excellent staff, professional and friendly. Nice food"

Pros: "Half empty plane was the best part of the flight."
Cons: "People treated the plane like it was their home. People threw trash on the ground, let their kids run around. It sucked."

Cons: "Ethiopian Air almost did not let me on the flight because I didn't have a return ticket through Ethiopian Air. Almost missed my flight, and was forced to purchase a return flight just so that I could make my flight. According to them, passport control would not let me into Cape Town without it, but customs never once asked for my return flight information."
