Pros: "no"
Cons: "respect"

Pros: "Flight is spacious"

Pros: "The crew was fantastic, the plane felt nicer than most other airlines, and the meals were great, even in coach"

Pros: "Good service from the crew and good food."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and there are a lot of redundant checks before entering to the gate. No internet service and the flight was very long. (14 hrs)"

Pros: "Crew was receptive"
Cons: "Food boarding"

Cons: "Mu luggage got broken"

Pros: "Everything was GREAT!"

Pros: "On time. No problems"

Cons: "Be aware! "When customers purchase tickets they are paying for transportation for the specific class designated on their ticket and not for specific seat assignments. Seat assignments can never guarantee." This is what they emailed me when they did that to me on my pre-selected & confirmed seats!!"

Pros: "Crew was really amazing."
Cons: "Wifi not working- huge disappointment. Seats a bit hard on A350. The overhead bins on the inside suitable only for tall people."

Pros: "Service was fantastic as usual for me however it seems women are not treated equally service wise as wife on all 4 legs did not get all the things i was afforded. Lighting, pajamas, bed mattress, meal choice queries etc"
Cons: "The need to pull out boarding passes multiple times-like 6 times- and having to be screened Twice. To even buy some mouthwash i had to show boarding passes. Ridiculous"

Pros: "Qatae Airways is second to non as always"

Pros: "Everything."

Pros: "Extra leg room, very courteous crew, and pretty decent food. What’s not to like? I have had only very good experiences with Qatar so far."

Pros: "Had always liked the airline and on board crew members"
Cons: "Ground crew members in Doha airport need attitude check. been spotting these too often. On Board crew members are much better."

Pros: "The Crew has been excellent"
Cons: "When I arrived at the Airport in Arusha (JRO) my reserved row 23 aisle seats for the DOH to JFK segment were changed to the (last cabin section row 31); also my aisle seat was changed to a middle seat Food was better from JFK to DOH Entertainment was lacking - movie and TV selection was poor for 20+ hours of flight time"

Pros: "comfortable seats good service"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Stellar crew -- super friendly, served water/juices constantly, polite, attentive. To be commended Great choice of movies and entertainment but no wifi???"
Cons: "This was an older 777 -- no wifi -- pretty surprising on such a key flight at DOH-JFK! This is not the airline's fault but I had a crazy lady next to me who was very disoriented, who could not speak English and needed assistance. No one would deal with her! She had a little pouch with her name on it -- like a UM -- so someone knew something was not right when they put her on the flight. I bought drinks inside the terminal for this 14 hour flight but they were all confiscated at the additional security at the gate!! WTF"

Pros: "They do not provide hotel service even in a 11 hour layover saying the ticket is pomotional. If that is the case, why they sell tickets on promotion? Cheap mentality"

Pros: "Need to give people cheap access to wifi"

Pros: "Did not provide hotel even in a 10 hours lay over. The security personel does not know how to behave with passengers."

Pros: "Comfortable, on time"

Cons: "The planes weren't as comfortable as others I've been on like the double deckers of Emirates. Their economy class was NOTHING special. Everyone talks about how superior Qatar is, but I found nothing special about it...the seats, the food, the entertainment were all basic and nothing fancy. The crew, while very sweet, seemed inexperienced and green to me..but they were lovely and that's all that ultimately matters."

Pros: "Water bottle"
Cons: "There was no snack for the people that don't sleep, it's a long flight, I'd suggest instant noodle cups for those or chips or cookies (I know they hand them out maybe once, but maybe have it near the bathroom, so when people are hungry they don't have to bother the crew)."

Pros: "Excellent service from the crew. Flight on time."

Cons: "I had a long trip and as a result I had lost my voice, and the crew had no patient at all. I feel like she just wanted to check the box instead of really making sure I got what I wish for food wise."

Cons: "Some crews are not accommodating."

Pros: "Again, the crew were top notch"
Cons: "Comfort and available entertainment were so-so"

Cons: "They announced everything in English and Arabic and repeated the same announcement multiple times. The entertainment is good but frustrating that it is constantly interrupted with announcement about everything. I have never heard that many on any other plane. The announcement about customs paperwork was long and done 2 times in English and 2 times in Arabic. There safety video is soooo long and again is done in two languages. It was just all too much. Besides that everything was great."

Pros: "Mediocre staff, not very attentive, horrible boarding experience in Doha. Food was inedible, watched a crew member place food she had spilled onto the aisle FLOOR back onto a tray to give to someone as if nothing happened, which prompted me not to anything for an 8 hour trip. DISGUSTING!"
Cons: "I will never purchase a flight with Qatar"

Cons: "I will never ever fly Qatar airlines again. The boarding for this flight in Doha was horrendous. I and a random group of passengers were made to wait with no explanation AFTER our electronics were already cleared to go through yet another security check. They said we were selected for screening but all the other people they took before us were screened the exact same way. It was stressful and traumatizing to stand for 45 minutes with no clear explanation. The crew were clearly new at their job or ill trained. On top of that they consistently ran out of food they were serving and was forced to take the vegetarian option when it's not what I wanted. I could not wait to leave Doha and exit Qatar airways. I hated my experience traveling with Qatar. It was stressful and traumatic. I want a full refund. I will also be advising all my friends to never fly Qatar. It was the WORST!"

Pros: "same"
Cons: "same"

Pros: "The was very hospitalty"
Cons: "Every thing was amazing"

Pros: "view above"
Cons: "The woman behind me wouldn't allow me to put my seat back. My comfortability was off because she didn't want her TV screen close to her face. I didn't want to make a big deal. Other than that I love Qatar airlines."

Pros: "Plane was perfect"
Cons: "Transit was just tedious very long line , had to wait for along time. The crew have very strong accent which makes difficult to understand them, but they are very nice and helpful"

Pros: "Stewardess (Thai origin) - can't recall her name... Simi something or another... was very helpful... great experience!"

Pros: "SPECIALLY THE CREW SERVICE EXCELLENT"

Pros: "Service & cleanliness."
Cons: "Nothing I remember."

Pros: "Considering how long it was, not much could have been better. It wasn't too crowded, so the seat next to me was free, which made getting some sleep easier."

Pros: "Amazing airline with excellent crew and ground staff ever willing to help!"

Pros: "Qatar is not glitzy. Better than that, it was straightforward and relaxed and comfortable. Crew was pleasant and helpful."

Pros: "The crew, they were very pleasant and good about taking care of our needs."
Cons: "The middle console video went out on my husband at the end of the flight, while he was watching a movie. This also happened on the earlier flight from Singapore to Doha."

Pros: "everything!"

Cons: "is it true that Qatar treats the passengers coming to US differently than the passengers going out of US. I noticed that the crew was giving menu cards for dinner when coming back to US. Food quality is very ad, quantity is small also. same story with snacks. they don't offer enough food overall. The crew should be trained better for int'l passengers."

Pros: "I was incredibly impressed with the on board crew. They were kind, efficient, courteous, thoughtful, and charismatic. They made the LONG flight enjoyable and extra comfortable. :)"

Cons: "They supposed to provide Wheel chair for my elderly mother in Law who had a foot fracture, was very hard /painful to walk. I confirmed the wheelchair option well advance before her travel date in Qatar Airways Web site. I got the confirmation also in the Qatar Airways Web site. I usually fly with my family as I have a big family with couple of children and elderly. I will never fly Qatar again, this was the 1st and the last fly with Qatar airways."

Cons: "No entertainment service from Doha to New York"

Pros: "Boarding on time. Crew was very nice except food option."
Cons: "My wife didn't get veg food she is looking for. We asked crew and they said they don't have."

Cons: "I am hard of hearing. It would be appreciated it you would offer more movies with English subtitles."

Cons: "Good"

Pros: "Staying overnight in Istanbul because of the 8 hours delay."

Cons: "(see above)"

Cons: "None"

Cons: "na"

Pros: "never turkish airlines ever again!"
Cons: "never turkish airlines ever again!"

Cons: "The airport staff in Istanbul was horrible. Wouldn't help find the gate until the last second. After arriving in JFK. We're stuck on plane on tarmac for 3.5 hours "waiting for a gate" unacceptable."

Pros: "I am not blaming the airline at all for these inconveniences."
Cons: "NOTE: THIS IS NOT A CRITIC OF THE AIRLINE Having personally experienced the latest in the consequences of travel related rules mandated by US public officials, I am yet again left wondering if they, and their families, go through these rules that they impose on the general public. Or if they just breeze into their private airport wings and planes. I doubt they take off shoes, belts, and such, or go through irradiated machines. But going through about 3 extra layers of security while transiting is a bit much. Not to mention the extra hours spent relinquishing and reclaiming laptops etc. Frankly, non of these acts makes anything safer. It is akin to the permanently parked police vehicle on the Brooklyn Bridge in NYC since 9-11. What is that supposed to deter?"

Pros: "Interior of the plane"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "It wasn't communicated beforehand to check in our baggage to electronics."

Pros: "Attentiveness of staff."
Cons: "The check-in was quite hectic."

Pros: "Almost everything from boarding till landing."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that people need to wait in the bus shuttle too long. It's just better to let people wait at the gate and ride them to the plane when it's 100% ready."

Cons: "Luggage was held back in Istanbul. It was broken into and never made it to NYC. They shipped to Texas at which point it had been opened and rifled through. Unprofessional."

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "All"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "x"

Pros: "There were a lot of very good experiences with Turkish Air. I was pleasantly surprised how friendly and courteous the staff was. Overall, the trip was a pleasure. I would fly with Turkish Air again."

Cons: "Very good"

Cons: "According to the menu we were supposed to have a choice of chicken or eggplants. When it was my turn - it turned out that there was no chicken left. Fine. Eggplants with some kind of lasagna. This lasagna was just old! Old and dry. And cold. It was definitely not fresh. I asked to warm it up. Got another one. Which was not better actually. That was really annoying. Only after one more complaint I was offered some kosher (and now really good) meal instead."

Pros: "Excellent"
Cons: "Everything good"

Cons: "Very very cramped"

Cons: "Need more vegetarian options"

Pros: "All amazing"

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "My new iphone was stolen off the plane. I have complained to the turkish airline people. They tell me fill out feed back forms. I did no response yet. I want to be compensated for my stolen phone"

Cons: "Late baggage"

Pros: "I have been flying with Turkish Airline for over 24 years. And they are the best ever. If they have flights to my destination I sure fly with them."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "evrting"

Pros: "US government sends out travel advisories in timely fashion"
Cons: "Turkish airlines is overwhelmed with schedule changes. They behave in a manner not respecting the gravity of the situation and the need for people to get home. For example, they rescheduled our flights but did not confirm or ticket our flights. They should use all resources to get us home but won't let us fly on Star Alliance code share flights."

Pros: "Good in general"
Cons: "Delayed flights"

Pros: "I like every thing"

Pros: "Great staff"
Cons: "Departed late, landed late, baggage claim took over an hour and half"

Pros: "All was ok"

Cons: "See above"

Pros: "see above"
Cons: "See above"

Cons: "Neverrrrr againnnnn!!!!!!!with Turkish airlines"

Pros: "Meals, pillows and blankets, and the pouches with the slippers, toothpaste, etc."

Pros: "Priority lounge access made 12 hour layover less unbearable."
Cons: "Missing tray table. Was allowed to keep my bag for takeoff but not for landing. Defective headphones (three pairs). Long waits for lavatories. Animals in main cabin. No ability to turn off main cabin screen while landing. Neighbor vomited due to roughness of landing. And the 12 hour layover (CDG-IST-JFK) was pretty harsh, though not as bad as 16 in the other direction."

Cons: "Similar issues as described above"

Cons: "The airport"

Cons: "KLM lost my suitcase and did not deliver it until three days later... They refused to compensate me for having delivered the bag with broken articles inside (A pair of Rayban Wayfarers!)"

Cons: "Very nice crew and great food"

Pros: "Crew is excellent, polite and personal!"
Cons: "Plane is super old and outdated. Comfort seat is not, comfortable, very tight. TV screen is not good quality, with the old controls on a handset. No touch, no 1/8 inch audio jack (it has the old 3 holes one). Wifi for streaming freezes every other second. Just make a face lift to the plane, everything else is good."

Cons: "Bigger seats the new ones are way to narrow"

Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Wifi on klm"

Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Staff: from check in to landing, they could at least smile. Baggage claim was a nightmare, 6 Schengen flights in the same belt."

Cons: "The food was just average and the seat not too comfortable"

Pros: "The crew was informative"

Cons: "Working wifi would be good. Better A/C. More comfortable seats"

Cons: "Travelled business class and was ace experience"

Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Passenger who needed wheelchair assistance it took KLM 50 minutes to get him off plane which delayed our boarding. KLM not prepared to handle passengers with needs"

Pros: "Crew was amazing. They adjusted the seating arrangements so there was an empty seat in every row to give passengers more space. Very thoughtful and much appreciated. They served delicious meals, snacks, and water. They provided headphones, blankets and pillows. They took very good care of us."

Pros: "the trip was excellent and comfortable. LOved the windows that shaded out rather than the having to pull down the plastic blind. entertainment on board top notch screen huge One hostess , Helen was absolutely fantastic and the best I ve had on my many trips. I will recommend KLM whenever I can"
Cons: "the headrest is hard. Apart from that- all was fine"

Pros: "Crew was ok."
Cons: "Screens need a serious upgrade, my seat didn’t recline all the way nor could it be restored to an upright position. Not very comfortable and I paid for a seat upgrade."

Pros: "Awful"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Overall KLM experience is good"
Cons: "Food quality was mediocre for a business class flight."

Pros: "Being fed was amazing and watching free TV was great!"

Pros: "Lovely crew, very helpful"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Friendly hostesses"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours"

Cons: "old screens and entertainment system leg room to small"

Pros: "Seat 39A did not recline. The gentleman next to me spread his arms out a bit as he typed on his computer the entire way. So I did not get ANY sleep. Plus he got up at least four times."
Cons: "Except for the man next to me - great!"

Cons: "Services was pretty weird .. Perse or crew Leader was ok But the assistent Young one was Really bad.. aptitud and not friendly at all."

Pros: "Crew was great, very nice"
Cons: "Not enough legroom"

Pros: "Great on board service from a very professional crew."
Cons: "Can't think of a thing."

Pros: "The crew was fantastic! Our needs were constantly being met and just about the time you thought you might want a snack or a meal, the attendants were already heading down the aisle. Because of an allergic reaction, I asked for ice a number of times and the attendants were more than happy to meet my needs."
Cons: "The seats were very close together. The trip from New York to Amsterdam seemed a lot more comfortable than the return flight. The food from NYC JFK was better than the food from Amsterdam. The movie selection on both flights was a little disappointing."

Pros: "She was cheerful and genuine. I have dietary restrictions but was unable to preorder a meal. She went out of her way to find an available meal for me. I also saw her bring other passengers extra snacks and drinks."
Cons: "Cramped seating."

Pros: "Fairly nice flight. 7 hours AMS to JFK. They had ice cream cones for us mid flight and an after dinner cognac if you wished."
Cons: "Not a big fan of paying for a few extra inches of leg room in a better seat after paying for a ticket."

Cons: "Boarding was very confusing. There was an area where they were checking people's bags or something near the gate and you didn't know if you needed to stop at it or continue. They didn't collect garbage before landing. Not only did we have to take our bags off the plane, we had to carry our garbage (drink cups/food served) to the front of the plane to throw out."

Pros: "On both of my flights to New York City, I was amazed at how friendly and helpful the flight attendants were to the passengers. On my short flight from Basel to Amsterdam, a young French speaking girl was concerned about how to manage getting to her next gate. The flight attendants talked to her and arranged for someone to take her there. On my longer flight from Amsterdam to New York City, there was a customer who was in distress about missing a previous flight and not making it to her connecting flight in New York. One of the flight attendants reassured her until she stopped crying and calmed down. That same flight attendant was always so positive and cheerful in all she did. The rest of the crew was top notch. This was my best experience flying in such a long time. Well done, KLM crews of flights 1984 and 0645 on July 10!"

Pros: "Due to lightening bolt strike our pre-Y2K era plane got switched out with a newer plane with modern media delivery at the seats."
Cons: "This caused a two hour delay in boarding and another 30 minutes on the JFK T4 tarmac. Same crappy headphones so it wasn’t the"

Pros: "Very friendly service!"

Cons: "KLM crews look unhappy with their work. Everything they do is a favor not duty."

Pros: "The cabin crew were pretty good. That's about all that was good."
Cons: "I paid almost $400 for upgraded seats. When I got to the airport-- no seats-- both ways!! i didn't even have regular seat assignments. I had to choose from the last few seats available. The ticket agent, the gate agent and the cabin crew all did nothing to make up for the fact that their system screwed up and stuck me in a cramped coach seat in the back of the plane for 11 hours-- TWICE! Beyond that, KLM must have one of the oldest fleets in the sky. Both ways LAX->AMS->LAX, I was on a 30-35 year old 747 with no wifi, no power and a ten-year-old entertainment system. Never again."

Cons: "I don’t like the limited choice of drinks on these short KLM flights."

Pros: "Flight was delayed for three hours and was a very stressful flight"
Cons: "Flight was not on time and got to destination very very late pier management of aircrafts"

Pros: "staff was fine"
Cons: "old old plane, very uncomfortable. Tiny bad screen made movies pointless"

Pros: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "great choice of entertainment content, friendly crew"

Pros: "They were awesome."

Pros: "Everything was good. The crew was very friendly and attentive. The plane was comfortable, with great entertainment on the personal screens. The food was delicious. Flight was on time and actually arrived early, but then we had to wait for a gate (not the airline's fault)."
Cons: "No complaints at all."

Pros: "Crew was friendly, and the food was better than the usual KLM fare."
Cons: "The "new" seats were hard and uncomfortable. Avoid any kinds of seats near the bathroom in a configuration with 3 abreast next to the windows. The "aisle" seat is essentially a "waiting area" for the rest room."

Pros: "Fortunately, the plane was not full, so people could spread out a bit to create extra room. The food was really good! (surprisingly)."
Cons: "KLM's new configuration for this type of plane made the seats even narrower than before. While leg room was reasonable, the 3 abreast seating meant a lot of discomfort, especially in the row right in front of the restroom."

Pros: "The staff and crew"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Stop feeding us bread"

Pros: "Seat was weary at 52H. Although there were other empty and more comfortable seats, the crew didn't let me have one."
Cons: "Food could have been of fish kind variety and hot drinks weren't available. No hot drinks, neither coffee, nor tea."

Pros: "Amazing plane"

Pros: "I liked the new airplane. Compared to my jfk-cai flight the plane was spotless and everything worked. I didn’t feel like I was on a flying greyhound bus. The crew kept the bathrooms cleaner which was great."
Cons: "I was very disappointed that I couldn’t bring water through the gate security in Cairo to jfk. There was nowhere to purchase water after the gate so I felt dehydrated and inconvenienced by having to ask for water so many times."

Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "Terrible business class."

Pros: "every thing"

Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Lack of variety of entertainment movies, shows etc. No WiFi connection. Bathrooms were very dirty"

Pros: "Amazingly soft landings, as always."

Cons: "Not to sit in the midddle seat."

Pros: "Yes"

Cons: "If flying on time its always late even more than one hour"

Pros: "Direct flight, punctual time. Crew is friendly"
Cons: "several toilets were out of order (were marked occupied instead of out of order so I was waiting in vain until a passenger informed me it was not working not occupied). food, looked like they were trying to conserve on passengers desserts.. microscopic (toy size) containers for coffee n tea??!"

Pros: "I didn’t like anything about this airline !! the staff looks miserable I was delayed on all three of my flights! also my luggage was broken by egypt air baggage department"
Cons: "EVERYTHING ! this was the worst airline I have ever flow !"

Cons: "That I could check in online instead of the airport, to get to pick the seat I want, I was placed in an isle seat 2 rows before the end of the plane, right behind me the we only 2 seats row, and almost every single one that went to use the restroom had to bump into my chair in their way back"

Cons: "4 bags, agent charged me $100 for 12 # excess wt will no not allow me to repack to the lighter “other 3 bags 18 pounds light, total. I think a refund is in order."

Pros: "Fully flat seats, friendly crew, good food. Excellent price"
Cons: "Dated slightly worn seats"

Pros: "Good price. Direct flight. Decent food."
Cons: "Offer more frequent complimentary drinks. Staff talking too loudly at back of plane while passengers trying to sleep."

Pros: "Big plane, multiple boarding points. Food did its job & helped with the long flight. Movies weren't expansive, but good choices to kill the time."
Cons: "The crew did not have the key to unlock to doors leading to the plane, which forced everyone to wait 30 mins standing in line. It was quite silly! It delayed our flight about 30-45 minutes - not much, but really painful when the flight is almost 12 hours. The crew didn't tell us what was happening either, but it was pretty obvious."

Pros: "Direct flight, nice crew and professional pilot, didn’t feel the plane touching the ground while landing"
Cons: "Definitely not cheap flight ;) Food is no good , bathrooms were not clean and flight crew refused to clean it !!!"

Pros: "Flights were on time and boarding was orderly"
Cons: "Vegetarian food was poor. It was just boiled vegetables. Even the bread that was given to others was not there. They treated Vegetarian food as Vegan food (although it was specified as vegetarian), so there was no butter, no yogurt and nothing but boiled vegetables and fruit salad. Hard to sustain oneself with that on a 12 hour flight! I asked the flight attendant for yogurt who just ignored my request."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Cheap flight. Boarding was quick and thats about the only thing good."
Cons: "No Wifi, no alcohol, and food was terrible."

Pros: "The plane was new, roomy and very comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. It was a long flight, and most people slept most of the time."
Cons: "It took some effort to find the right check in window for the flight, and it involved a lot of walking around the airport. The selection of movies and tv shows was underwhelming. There was no room to sit in the business lounge."

Pros: "People"
Cons: "none"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Long time at jfk airport"

Cons: "Baggage was not logged into the flight, although it was checked in 2 hours before flight...!!!"

Pros: "Comfortable plane, nice crew, movies."

Pros: "every thing thank you"

Cons: "Great services and very clean air plane"

Pros: "Excellent experience overall, I would definitely fly again with Egypt Air."
Cons: "Only small thing was, I have seen better as far as in flight entertainment. The touchscreen was not responsive and selection not great. I brought my own on a tablet so it wasn't a big deal for me."

Pros: "Upgraded to business class at the ticket counter for a very reasonable price- comfort and ease."

Pros: "Good meals and equent tea, coffee and water in cups available. Headphones provided for entertainment."
Cons: "More garbage pickup needed- computer screens were dirty from previous flight use"

Pros: "seats were little comfy handrest where not even. choice of movies were basic. clean not a bad flight. food was decent."
Cons: "the stewards were accommodating and always with a smile. Bathrooms kept clean. check in easy."

Pros: "So organized airline"
Cons: "Head Hosts are aggressive but not so much"

Pros: "The crew was great. Very helpful and friendly."

Cons: "The pilot was excellent in take off and landing. He got us through some turbulence in a smooth excellent way"

Pros: "Great professional and fast"
Cons: "Couldnt take my camera in the hand bag which is unreasonable."

Pros: "Cheap air fare, i likeed all the services include an easy take off, landing on time, amazing food and crew were kind and comforting all customers on board."
Cons: "Cheap air fare, i likeed all the services include an easy take off, landing on time, amazing food and crew were kind and comforting all customers on board."

Pros: "Time..... everything was on time no late ..flight take off on time with good security Processing"
Cons: "Nothing really"

Pros: "I liked everything about the experience on the actual flight from Cairo to New York. Staff was great, food was great (two meals), drink options were great from juices, sodas, water, tea, coffee all great. the entertainment was awesome with so many movie/tv show options. and you can always get up and ask for a beverage if you were still thirsty, and plenty of toilets on the plane so rarely a line greater than 1 person."
Cons: "They seemed to run out of chicken as the dinner meal, when they got to my the flight to Cairo from NY they also ran out of chicken, the person next to me got the last one, the same thing happened to me on the way to NY, the person next to me got the last chicken, i was kind of upset but the other option of beef was still good."

Pros: "We flew JFK to CAI roundtrip in coach. The whole process from check-in to landing was good overall, and the meals were also of good quality and complimentary as was baggage check-in (compared to US carriers who charge you for everything)."
Cons: "The bathroom got a little dirtier on the long haul flight compared to what I remember on other carriers, and phone support is only available during business hours which turned out to be ok, but could be a problem if you need to have a question answered last minute."

Pros: "Nothing was good. Everything was horrible."
Cons: "Flight attendants are rude and nasty. They take forever to accommodate you. When you press the flight attendant button to be taken care of. They don't care at all. If you ask for help you're left unhelped."

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Babies crying in nearly every row. No ear plugs provided. Flight attendants not attentive at all. Attitudes for staff left and right. It was a horrible flight. Check in was a headache as well."

Pros: "They have some interesting old films like Charlie Chaplin in their silver screen entertainment choices. Accommodating flight attendants."
Cons: "There did not seem to be any air vents to adjust for cooling down when I felt hot."

Pros: "Staff was attentive and welcoming"

Pros: "The Crew was excellent and accommodating."
Cons: "Long flight ... could not sleep... Not your fault :) I'm very tall so the comfort for me was not as good as it could have been due to limited leg room. Please try to keep us in mind and /or try to get tall folks leg room seats. Thanks.. Happy security was good, but it was a bit slow."

Pros: "Pilots are excellent at smooth landing."
Cons: "To most Arabs, broadcasting a prayer before taking off is routine and goes without notice. To foreigners, it could initiate fear about the safety of the plane as it projects a need to rely on a super power to make it. It's cultural and could be misunderstood."

Cons: "i need a refund. our flight back to NYC from dubai was rescheduled with significant delays such that it would affect our jobs. We decided to book a return flight via qatar and we need a refund for this booking"

Cons: "Although the flight attendants were nice, I felt they should have gone through the cabin more often offering water or other beverages since this was such a long flight,"

Pros: "The food, air crew respectful and dedicated to duty"
Cons: "Everything was perfectly ok"

Pros: "When we were unable to travel due to Corona Virus restrictions, Ethiopian gave us a full refund even though we had a non-refundable ticket, and they were lovely about it when they did it. A+, hope I'll get a chance to actually fly with them soon."

Cons: "cramped boarding space and Addis airport. Inadequate space for volume of traffic. Capital investment in expansion required if Ethiopian to compete!"

Pros: "NA"
Cons: "NA"

Pros: "Yes, the crew were nice and amazing"
Cons: "Serve warm food not cold"

Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Arrived one hour late."

Cons: "I changed my flight but they didn’t change it and now I’m stuck!!!"

Cons: "1 hr delay in departure from Lusaka. Plastic cutlery was difficult to eat with. More frequent water/drinks during the flight (or water bottles instead of little cups) would have been appreciated. Movie options were not as great as other airlines."

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind"

Pros: "After the Kigali Addisababa segment this was vastly superior with a newer aircraft"

Cons: "Old aircraft, rickety seats"

Pros: "Super confortable"

Pros: "I love the entertainment and frequent availability of food and drinks"
Cons: "The seats are too squished together. I was stuck next to a fat woman who kept shutting off my movies by hitting the controls of my arm chair"

Cons: "Unsufficent information about boarding ..I missed my flight I will never use this service again ... complete waste of time"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I was overbooked in Addis"

Pros: "the flight was very nice and I thank all the crew for their kindness."

Pros: "Loved the meals and the leg room"
Cons: "The entertainment could have been better but overall was not too bad"

Pros: "Conexion"
Cons: "Delayed"

Pros: "Thumbs up. Flight was smooth and on time!"

Cons: "We are stuck at the airport because Ethiopian Airlines sent out false and miseading update stating that it’s flight was leaving at 6 PM as opposed to the scheduled 7:30 AM. Because of that no one showed up for the flight and there are no direct flights tomorrow that they would put us on! My father recently had a heart attack and this is causing him immense suffering! Additionally patient with emergencies are waiting to see my husband tomorrow and Tuesday but will not be able to because he stuck at the airport! They are refusing to put us on an airline us direct flight tomorrow! Also we have spent at least seven hours on the phone and misleading (and that’s to put it kindly) statements have been told."

Pros: "Staff are friendly and pleasant. Seats are comfortable with more space than some airlines.Good choice of films."
Cons: "This was probably the worst boarding I have ever seen. They called the Paris flight while people were still boarding for Frankfurt. It was chaotic, with people struggling to find which line to be in. There was no visible guidance from Ethiopian ground crew. Eventually got in line. One guy checking boarding passes for both business and economy. Very slow with again no crowd control. Children were not given priority. Eventually many people went through business queue while others had been waiting in economy. Ground staff were standing around watching and not helping or communicating. Poor show from Ethiopian!"

Pros: "Crew were nice"
Cons: "Always delaying, catastrophic food."

Cons: "The whole boarding process was a bit chaotic. I was really called on the plane. I tried to signal for a blanket or some food but there was only 2 cabin crew members."

Pros: "Liked the peaceful plane ride and room"
Cons: "Not being told why we were delayed or why we were going to be late. They told us over loud speaker and was not loud enough."

Pros: "Nothing. I was 2 hours early for the flight - it was over sold. They never apologized, they just told me "I didn't have a seat" like it was some how my fault... then sent me to the airport hotel and put me on the next days flight. I realize it wasn't the people at the desks fault and nobody was doing this TO me, but it was just stupid it happened at all. I don't get how they can just screw a whole day for a group of people and not even say "sorry.""
Cons: "They over sold the flight. Eight of us had tickets - I bought mine over a month ago - and they just sold too many seats or had too small of a plane or something. I've NEVER had this happen in 6 years of traveling continually. It's on my short list now of airlines that really just don't care."

Pros: "Crew members were friendly....."
Cons: "No entertainment"

Pros: "Auto-adjusting windows"
Cons: "Understaffed. The plane looked and felt old. Food was sub-par."

Pros: "gud space"
Cons: "Should be aware of the destination in terms of offering meals. very pathetic."

Pros: "Ethiopian beer, a first for me -- not bad."
Cons: "Where is the famous Ethiopian arabica coffee?"

Cons: "Food was served to passengers from seat row 30 and beyond very late. About twenty minutes to landing In Addis so passengers were forced to gulp the food Hurrying which is not comfortable"

Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Check in was a joke in Dublin, only 22 pax and they did a full team talk to start despite everyone bein there. In LAX they parked the plane in the middle of no where, and waited 30 mins before debark started, as the plane was so far away the terminal it took an hour for the bags. Food was horrible on both flights"

Cons: "No kosher food eventhogh we asked for it"

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Great Price Excellent dinner in economy for such a short flight (1.45) Quick, friendly service"
Cons: "Entertainment System is a tad bit outdated on this particular aircraft (737-8) but it was a shorthaul flight and their long haul flights have much better option. \ My seat - although in the exit row (with plenty of leg room) was uncomformable"

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"
