Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The crew was nice, the food was good. We did miss our first flight, so we were automatically rebooked on a new flight."
Cons: "We missed our first flight because of our connection."
Cons: "Terrible service. It’s a nightmare to fly with. And I have a baby with me that even worse to fly with Eva."
Pros: "crew excellent and very efficient & professional"
Pros: "Everything great"
Pros: "Eva does a great job, nice personnel, good food...probably better than most."
Cons: "More leg room. (My usual complaint,) Premium Economy Very Nice, but at a premium price. I flew once...nice to be offered a glass of Champagne once seated!"
Pros: "Flight crew"
Cons: "No leg room"
Cons: "Was not able to board"
Pros: "Economy seats were EXTREMELY uncomfortable, a mannequin would complain and to add insult to injury , the obvious placements of overly extravagant “first class” seats vs regular economy seats , were very off putting. People are sitting on cardboard for hours on end , add some comfort to your seats!"
Cons: "More humanly comfortable seats , I understand you get what you pay for, but having to be deliberately uncomfortable for 13 hours straight is extremely unfair."
Pros: "The seat was comfortable. The crew was very nice."
Cons: "Keep doing the same. Cost is not always the most important."
Cons: "My first meal was kind of burnt, and I wish they would offer a salt and pepper packets. Also, more frequent Rounds to pick up trash would be helpful"
Cons: "My food was kind of dried up like it had been over microwaved. We were very swished in our seats. Two middle in row of 4. :("
Pros: "Comfortable and excellent hospitality."
Pros: "Flight attendants were all nice and friendly."
Cons: "Seating way too tight"
Pros: "EVA isn't a discount airline. Being the National Airline of Taiwan and a member of the STAR alliance, you will pay a premium price. I was originally being put in a row right behind the bulkhead with no individual monitor and a seat that was extremely cramped because of the tray table. I knew that I would be able to hang for a 13 hour flight and fortunately, the flight attendant was able to move my wife and I."
Cons: "Only one current movie available. Food was bland and not very appetizing."
Pros: "It was a good comfortable flight and on time"

Pros: "EVA crew was wonderful and hardworking"
Cons: "Did not like our seats and weight limits for carry on"
Pros: "I’ve always had a great flight with them. Crew always very nice and very helpful."
Cons: "I have nothing bad to say. Maybe it there was a little more entertainment more movies and tv shows."
Cons: "Baggage rules on itinerary didn’t match reality. Baggage 7kg was enforced, check in bags almost empty as documents & computers weigh a lot, and cant be trusted to “check-in”. If I had know we could check in four bags free it would have made a big difference. The itinerary says one each, plus one for Premier status, which adds up to three in our case. Not a happy camper. Will avoid EVA when there are other good choices. My wife had advised against EVA to begin with, check-in confirmed her advice. Crew didn’t come by much with water or juice, but they were courteous. Seat belt sign was put on when bumpy, but not turned off for the next hour or two of smooth sailing. “I told you so” was here reaction . . . ."
Pros: "Cute and friendly flight attendants. Food was very tasty. Seat were amazingly comfy - no probs with sore bottom. Cabin area clean. Check-in was very easy."
Cons: "Think seats maybe 1-2" (2.5-5cm) closer than Asiana - knees hitting seat in front and if person leaned seat back, it would hurt."
Pros: "I really enjoyed the flight seated in the exit row 45. I was amazed at the on board service. The attendants moved quickly also in a run without the usual frowns that I’ve seen on other airlines."
Cons: "The exit row seat 45C was too narrow. The cup of coffee I had near the end of flight tasted like halve coffee halve tea. Also the checkin line was too slow. There appeared to be more clocks standing around instead of attending the customers trying to check in."
Pros: "Very comfortable. Great movies."
Cons: "Not so good on the television shows"
Pros: "I cannot say how much i enjoyed eva air. The stewardesses were wonderful the people in taipei i dealt with were fantastic."
Cons: "The woman i had to deal with in seattle at the ticketing desk was an absolute nightmare. Im heartbroken i dont remember her name because i would happily name her. Everyone else was perfect. The fella helping me even said "i am so sorry, she is awful and makes me very nervous. I will probably fly asiana from now on just so i do not have to deal with her."
Pros: "Never flew with EVA but timely take off and landing. Smooth flight. Kind crew members. I think everything is great because I did not expect a lot from this airlines."

Pros: "Without fail, every EVA flight crew is professional and kind the perfect combination for long flights."

Cons: "Old 744 plane. One of the 3 remaining 744s. In flight entertainment has low resolution screen (but touch screen though). Crew service was average - below par for an Asian airline. Seats are not comfortable. No drinks were offered after meal service for such a long flight. Please learn from SIA."
Pros: "Awesome flight...on time and good food.. customer service was excellent"
Cons: "Bad bad bad I book 3 months ahead, they should put us in the front row seat instead so far to the back seat."

Pros: "All except the food"
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "Qatar Airways are the best"
Pros: "Staff was nice and polite and helpful to me. The plane is pretty much on time or little delay. The boarding is early but I guess it helps with getting everyone on board and be on time."
Cons: "There are 2-3 choices per meal for us to choose on the menu but some of the choice already gone by the time they serve us. I feel like menu is useless if we were forced to eat what have left."
Pros: "The airplane trip was ok"
Cons: "I had 14h of layover in Doha and I did not have a hotel to sleep that night."
Pros: "Everything! It just awesome"
Cons: "Nothing can be better, an awesome flight"
Pros: "crew were amazing."
Cons: "Low cost airline so they charge you for everything. I had to pay $159 to check a bag for a 1.5 hour flight. That nearly doubled the cost of the original ticket. By the time they charge you for everything, you don't save any money. And they even weigh every purse, backpack, handbag, etc. at the gate and start charging customers for carry on. Don't fly with these guys. And because their customers are dissatisfied, all the employees I encountered were rude."
Cons: "The airline demaged both of my completely new suitcases. They both had TSA approved locks. One of the suitcses has a missing wheel, another one ripped zipper and missing lock and it was wraped in plastic. A few items were missing from that bag."
Pros: "I had a family emergency and couldn’t go. I wasn’t allowed to switch my flight or change it. Lots of money spent with nothing in return. Unfortunte."
Pros: "I really like the Qatar flight from Auckland to Manchester. But beware now that the Akl leg leaves 1 hour later the transit in Doha is officially 1.15hr. But since the first leg is always getting in and you have to bus to the terminal, transit time is about 30 mins. Although they are efficient and i made it this time, i wouldn't want to do this with kids."
Cons: "Short transit time"
Pros: "Arrived early in Budapest. Good leg room."
Cons: "Not enough toilets for length of flight and number of passengers! Always a long queue. Long bus journey from terminal to plane."
Cons: "the area I sat in smelled weird even though the crew helped spray a solution it didn’t help the smell .. Vegetarian meal is not good"
Pros: "The plane was Dreamliner. It was huge and nice. Great staff on board , very friendly ."
Pros: "all nice"
Cons: "nothing but avoid bread"
Pros: "Good leg space, friendly crew, excellent plane."
Cons: "This is for ALL airlines: It takes so long to get off the plane!"
Pros: "Entertainment is very good"
Cons: "boarding hall was very small, food was below average for Qatar Airways"
Cons: "most of us sitting in and around me didn't get any rest or sleep as we had a passenger who had a psychotic breakdown and was screaming and poking everyone. She sprinkled me with water severally, I hope we get some sort of compensation from Qatar airways for this terrible disturbance"
Pros: "On our flight from Atlanta, we loved the service and great recommendations from the flight attendant, Carmen, who made great suggestions for our Malaysia trip."
Cons: "The seats were very tight and the food was okay, but the staff was great."
Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "The change of my flight schedule for the entire journey was done without giving me any options (departure flights from origin and return). It would have caused me inconvenience if the change of time does not allow me to adjust my plans."
Pros: "inflight and qatar airport crews were accomodating eventhough there were backlogs due to delays caused by snow storm."
Cons: "The Ground crews in boston airport were not accomodating."
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable and there was more room for our legs than most airline provide. The entire staff as well as the pilot certainly know what the term “service” means!"
Pros: "All around a great experience."
Cons: "The internet worked for like 2 minutes and then said my time was up, even though I was supposed to get 15 minutes for free or something."
Pros: "Seat features. Extensive beverage and food menus. Great IFE system"
Cons: "Had to flag down crew for pre-departure beverage and hot towel. They are usually more attentive"
Pros: "excellent service always a pleasure to fly with QATAR Airways"
Pros: "I was really impressed by how nice caring and wonderful were the flight attendants!!! Excellent service!!! Great food!!!"
Pros: "Service was excellent. Check in was efficient & welcoming. Staff was very friendly & helpful."
Pros: "Service is fantastic. Comfort in business class. Great food. You can't ask for nothing better. The lounge in Doha is breath taking."
Cons: "Two meals served. Too many chicken options, so alternates quickly ran out. Also first drinks were served 3.5 hours after boarding gate opened. No drink options at boarding gate."
Pros: "The flight was on time and boarding was fast"
Pros: "Comfortable seat and good service"
Pros: "They make you feel welcome like you are a big deal unlike most US airlines. Ticamporn was a great hostess especially . Food was great as well."
Pros: "The service during the flight was excellent, workers showed all kind of concern and care. Thank you."
Pros: "flat bed business class seats"
Cons: "flight was delayed by more than four hours. as per the ground staff due to technical hitch but as per the pilot due to run way maintenance in COK. but there were other flights from Emirate, Jet, Ethihad all flying in and out without any issues, so doubt why only runway maintenance for QR.."
Pros: "Everything was good ... we were on time .. no delay so .. perfect !"
Pros: ". ."
Pros: "The crew members are amazing."
Pros: "Crew Boarding"
Cons: "Food Not so comfy"
Cons: "The seat cussion on the airplane is to hard for a 5+ hours flight. Not enough food for vegans"
Pros: "Cabin crew was pleasant and at least smiled."
Cons: "Why was it necessary to have to queue to present your boarding pass to get into a sitting area only to have to queue again to actually board the plane? What was the point of having priority access with status with Qatar Airways as an economy passenger to get into the seating area only to have to wait for ALL other passengers to then board ahead of you onto the actual plane especially when they say they allow priority boarding for those with status on the airline?"
Pros: "The Boing 777."
Cons: "Flight attendants English very poor."
Pros: "Crew was phenomenal. Felt safe and cared fir on flight."
Cons: "Food choices seemed a little under the Qatar standard considering the high level of quality for other aspects of this airline. Not airlines fault but took too long to get yo terminal at IAD Leg room a little tight in economy of 777"
Cons: "Good was not good"
Pros: "Friendly used easy to use"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 3 hours making me late for the next two flights and ultimately costing me an entire day longer in transit. While I understand these things happen, Air Canada's response to me asking for help was abysmal. Ultimately, they didn't care and told me it was my problem. Sadly, one of the first people I talked to really did want to help and arranged flights that would have gotten me back on track but he was prevented from confirming the changes due to management. I will never fly with Air Canada ever again."
Cons: "Boarding in the rain is definitely not a good experience! The flight delayed so long that some of us who had connecting flights had to run from gate to gate (including clearing Canada customs) within 20 mins. Last but not least, Taipei Taiwan should NOT be listed as China."
Pros: "Boarding was easy and efficient"
Cons: "We paid an extra $100 for each ticket for premium seating, supposed to be a step above the basic coach ticket with more leg room (my partner and I are 6'+), but our seats were no different than anyone else's. In fact, the seating chart the agent provided for selection when on the call to add this was not for this plane, as it turned out. We will be requesting a refund!"
Cons: "Unreliable flight, always late, not staff at the check in terminal"
Cons: "Food was mediocre, I’d expect a bit more for the price paid."
Cons: "Took 3 hours to get our drinks. Completely out of inventory with food and snacks. Very hot on the plane . WiFi didn’t work/ they charged for headphones which i haven’t even heard of. My tray table was completely crooked , i had to place my drinks on my husbands table. Overall, just terrible."
Pros: "Everything is good"
Cons: "Almost no"
Cons: "delayes again....."
Pros: "Air Canada's airplane cleanliness is second to none in my book. That's why I always fly with them... Or rather flew..."
Cons: "The unending stream of excuses and explanations failed to convince me that this was anything but mismanagement that caused a delay of 5 hours. We'd be told something, and told the exact opposite, or a contradicting statement 15 minutes later. You botched this one bad Air Canada."
Pros: "the crew was very kind with getting those with close connecting flights off first."
Cons: "it was an hour late."
Cons: "Better luggage Service"
Pros: "movie selection on international flight was great."
Cons: "Had a serious delay, which was not acknowledged in anyway. We just waited near the gate for a long, long time. Also, for one of my flights, my group number was never called. I asked the flight attendant about it (when I passed through the gate after most other customers had boarded) and she flippantly responded with something like, "Yeah, maybe I didn't call your boarding zone. I don't know. Whatever." This left a terrible first impression on me."
Pros: "Nice plane."
Cons: "WAY too hot."
Pros: "Nothing. NOTHING."
Cons: "It took two hours to check my bag at the airport. The plane engine needed to be jump started, and I missed my connection flight to Paris. I had to spend an entire day stuck in Toronto, sick from terrible Hotel and airport food, cheap vouchers for terrible food, I missed my traveling companion who made the flight to Paris. I left my hat on the plane after the terrible flight in which they refused us any basic courtesies for the numerous passengers who were about to be stranded, and then the grooming crew kept my hat instead of turning it in to lost and found. Best part? Customer service told me that since I booked via Kayak, that I was not a valued customer and that they would not extend any courtesies to me for destroying my work trip itinerary."
Cons: "Took forever to board"
Pros: "Friendly service is so important to me - and the staff and flight crew at Air Canada met all my expectations. I had the displeasure of flying United on the way to Seattle and I must say the service at Air Canada is far above!"
Pros: "Short, comfortable seats"
Cons: "Flight delayed again and again. Waited for hours at the airport until they cancelled the flight."
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment system in the headrest was very robust. My children remained engaged for almost the entire 16hr flight...the flight attendants were not stingy with the food or drink and even allowed me to get a beverage in-between the services to take my medicine."
Cons: "The baggage pickup in Beijing took forever! Over an hour after arriving at the baggage carrosel! My car seats were in two different places (on the belt and in an oversize area). On a minor note, I was unable to get a stamp in my passport after using the automated machine...sad...I would have stood in the line to get the stamp if I was told ahead of time..."
Cons: "Food was terrible especially for Prem economy. Chicken dish very bad. Difficult to get a second glass of wine with main meal."
Pros: "Overall I enjoyed the movies provided. In the three week span I had a lot of the movie choices overlapped. However, I found that there were many options provided that allowed me to find movies I had not seen yet even though they were not released within the past 3-5 years."
Cons: "I felt like I was constantly being bumped sitting in the aisle seat. I also was not a fan of the breakfast options."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "I was too tall for the seats and the person in front of me was unable to put there seat back, they wanted me to trade with someone else but the. I just would have been a problem for someone else. The steward made me feel as though I was at fault because I should have payed the extra 100 to have emergency exit seating, they tried to get me to sit in the very back row of the plain and sit sideways across the two seats which means I would not be able to sit next to my fiancé. The whole thing was embarrassing and very rude, maybe people of 6'6" should be charged for emergency exit!!"
Pros: "I was not charged overweight for going over by 2 pounds since I had a Business Class ticket connection to my final destination."
Cons: "For an almost 4 hours, 400 USD international flight I would have expected to have at least a snack to eat a one luggage to check in on the price. I am an international traveler which doesn't have a choice but to carry a suitcase. Not to say that once on board I was requested to check in my carry on because there was no room on the plane and that I had to travel with my personal item on my feets since there was no available room at the over the head compartiment since I was identified with Zone 5 boarding."
Pros: "Service in the cabin was great."
Cons: "Can't think of anything"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours"
Pros: "Comfort. Individual screens"
Pros: "Superb experience all around....comfortable, clean, good entertainment, on-time, good food curteous crew!"
Cons: "Nothing- we will definitely travel with you again!"
Pros: "Food was good, service good in business cabin"
Cons: "We left late, and despite it being obvious we were going to leave late, all the information posted at the gate and on the web said on time. Why is it that airlines don't tell the truth about departures and arrivals times?"
Pros: "Food was okay"
Cons: "Rude people on board, crew didnt do anything about this."
Pros: "Didn't have much good with air canada. Some of the worst customer service I've experienced. Flight was fine."
Cons: "Boarded an hour late, made us miss our layover even though they said they were holding our following flight to Tokyo. The both of us along with 10 others on our flight got to the gate 10 minutes after the flight was supposed to leave and they wouldn't let anyone on. Missed the first day of our honeymoon trip along with unrefundable hotel fees. I travel a lot and never had an experience like this before."
Pros: "I accidentally left my tablet behind when I disembarked. The crew located it and brought it to me speedily while I waited in the baggage area. I'm truly grateful and impressed. All of the flight crew were delightful and thoughtful."
Pros: "The flight was less than an hour. So I don't expect anything."
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Why is there no TV?"
Pros: "That the plane didn't crash."
Cons: "When I flew to Toronto the plane left 15 mins late but arrived an hour an twenty min late. No turbulence or trouble, just late. I stepped off that plane to my connector to Paris when boarding was suppose to start but that plane was on an hour delay. The food is just horrible, anyone who has flown knows this, and on both flights first class was the only priority. They got to everyone else when it was convenient. This was my first time flying with Air Canada and will certainly be my last. I'll happily pay a little more for the other airlines. So if you fly with them, good luck to you."
Cons: "The plane was up and down twice when it landfall."
Pros: "New plane lots of comfort"
Cons: "Canadian airport very confusing got lost twice even with directions."
Pros: "Normal economy flying, you get a seat and line to the bathroom. I am thankful we are not traveling the old ways. I am over expecting too much when you don't pay much for it."
Cons: "Paid for breakfast but did not get it. However, I did not say anything to the attendant."
Cons: "When I arrived in London my bag was not on carousel. I went to help desk to find out my bag was put on the next flight for some reason. No explanation given and no real accommodation given except telling when the flight would arrive. I guess I luckily only had to wait an hour, however it shouldn't be that way to begin with."
Pros: "One of the stewardess is really cute and she speaks French"
Cons: "The cabinet temperature is ridiculously low and they only offer a thin blanket"
Pros: "We boarded very quickly! The staff were extremely friendly and made our thirteen hour ride pleasurable. The inflight entertainment had a great deal of new shows and movies. The seats had a decent size and good enough leg room. The flight was smooth, and we took off at a good time. The food was fairly good as well!"
Pros: "Air Canada has the best food, most leg room for economy class and super efficient. I will be using Air Canada often in the future."
Cons: "Delayed for almost 2 hours but keep saying just 50 minutes late"
Pros: "Overall fair experience"
Cons: "Would have liked if the crew was a bit more friendlier. But they were professional for the most part."
Pros: "Someone from the previous flight left a handle of whiskey and I kept it"
Cons: "The food besides noodles in a cup was not that good"
Pros: "standard short hop flight"
Cons: "Check in was ridiculous. I went through al the on line procedures and was even able to print out my luggage tag at the kiosk... but then had to wait in line for 45 minutes just to drop my luggage! I came more than 2 hours before as instructed, but the agent at the "baggage drop off" (really the all-round agent for both checking in and baggage drop off) did not show up until less than 90 minutes before the flight, and then there was only one to handle what had become a very long line."
Cons: "I booked a seat to be seated right next to SO. However, upon check-in, they changed the seat without telling me. Fortunately, we were able to exchange seat to be seated together."
Pros: "Flight was on time"

Pros: "Cabin crew support for food."
Cons: "Availability of limited Bollywood movies. Expecting English subtitles for Hollywood movies"
Pros: "China Southern was a pleasure to fly."
Cons: "Middle seat on a 777 for 15 hours is not great, but, hey, what can you do?!"
Pros: "China Southern's cabin crew are amazing, responding quickly to anything a passenger might need. They seemed a little frustrated at the end of the flight near Wuhan, most likely because they had to clean and prepare to go on to Guangzhou."
Cons: "It wasn't super clear from our booking that we'd go to Wuhan and then Guangzhou instead of a straight shot! Seats were a bit uncomfortable on the Dreamliner for such a long-haul flight. Also, the food wasn't great but it's abundantly supplied, even a night-time snack if you asked."

Cons: "Cannot check in online or even select a seat The IFR on my seat was not wokring"
Pros: "Crew efficient, Food satisfactory, Boarding is fine. You just have to have no high expectations"
Pros: "Out of Guangzhou (CAN), the food was dreadful. They cannot make decent coffee, either! They did have UHT milk instead of powdered creamer for the coffee, so that was better than usual! Once the flight attendant rebooted my non-functioning entertainment system, it had quite a bit to offer."
Cons: "Seated in the last row, so the seat would not recline so much as an inch. On such a long flight (something over 14 hours), a hard, cramped seat is difficult to endure. Aircraft was filled to bursting, not a single vacant seat. With so many people, boarding could be better organized. Not the most experienced or competent of pilots, either. Could not handle crosswinds landing at JFK, so it was a rather hairy landing, weaving down the runway."

Cons: "The plane was very old"
Pros: "I had just suffered multiple breaks in my arm/shoulder and was returning to the States. I was in considerable pain and flying alone - this was the first flight out I could get. Everyone was AMAZING. From helping to rearrange seats, other passengers, and even upgrade to maximize comfort and minimize more damage to my arm to helping open any food packages so that I could eat with medication and checking in on me frequently, I couldn't have asked for better attention given the situation. I hadn't heard of this airline before but now highly recommend - they were amazing through two flight legs, two different airline crews, and 3 airports. Cannot thank the crew enough for their attention and care during a very difficult time. I am a frequent traveler and this is the best customer experience I've ever had."

Cons: "Less leg space"
Pros: "Best seat I have ever had"

Cons: "I have never had to stay at a hotel overnight because of a missed connection but when I made the reservation I wondered how you would honor the 1 hour layover and not miss. I wondered this before any of your delays. I was assured the connection would wait but not correct and you did miss. If you would have told me at the airport this would happen I would have made other arrangements. Instructions on what to do was quite poor too. As a foreigner to be handed a stack of vouchers without direction on where to go for transportation wasn’t satisfactory."
