Ethiopian Airlines check in staff made a pigs-ear of my check in process. First they claimed I'd missed the flight (my ticket said 2335 on 15 Dec, they changed flight to 0010 on 16 Dec, but claimed that as my ticket was for 15 Dec my booking was invalid). They proceeded to re-issue me with a new ticket a (for the 0010 fight on 16 Dec), but then also tried to change my connecting flights by one day - even though they should remain the same (in effect the flight was only put back by 35 minutes, so why change a booking for connecting flight by 24 hours?). Fortunately on arrival in Shanghai, air china check me onto the correct flight. However, to compound matters, my luggage has gone missing and, bizarrely, Ethiopian airlines issued all foreign passengers with landing cards for Japan - not China!
Food was better than most. The crew was nice. The flight departed promptly.
The touch screen didn't work, and the bar below the chair that one can step on couldn't hold itself up, and I constantly had to reposition it. The audio port of the seat next to me didn't work either. The plane definitely needs a renovation.
I got an incredible deal for this flight. I had never flown Sungapore Airlines, but I would do so again is a second. Great service, everybody is very friendly and helpful... I don't have a thing to complain about! So, so, so much better than the miserable experiences I always seem to have on AA.
I was lucky to have a window and slept well on my flight. I liked the flight was smooth. I also am glad we landed safely.
Late announcement of flight delay. Cost me 4 extra hours at LAX, doing nothing. Then, flight delayed again for 30 minutes prior to boarding...and yet AGAIN while on the plane...because of a water shortage. What had the crew been doing in between flights?? Lastly, these delays caused the plane to arrive in Tokyo at 12:30AM (originally it was 10:30PM). All transportations options were closed. I had to take a $90 USD taxi fare into the city. JAL or AA should have given travel vouchers to everyone who needed them. BAD SERVICE, BAD COMMUNICATIONS, BAD RATING.
The crew was friendly, kind, and efficient. I received curtious service with a smile. They even left me a note while I was sleeping, rather than disturbing me. When I awoke hours later, they still happily brought me food and drink!
My main complaint is the quality of the seats. They recline decently, but are some of the hardest, most uncomfortable seats ever. This, in my opinion is unacceptable for such a long flight. On this same trip I took 45 minute flights with 5x the comfort!
Loved the comfort of the A380, the big seatback t.v screen even in economy class & the on time flights for the most part. (Of the 4 flights I took, 3 were on time departures, and only one arrived late). The ground crew at check in were always incredibly helpful at LAX, ICN & BKK as well. I loved that they always confirmed I had a special meal request & willingly accommodated my seat request as well.
Limited entertainment to choose from. (Please try and mirror the amount of entertainment Cathay Pacific and Emirates have; especially for Bollywood films). Also, the cabin crew had very limited English proficiency & it was difficult to understand their English P.A announcements at times. In addition, please note that cauliflower isn't the only vegetable an AVML can be cooked with. There ARE other vegetables to choose from. Also, the fish in the SFML smelled strange. Please revisit the menu for both meals & try to be a bit more innovative with the taste.
