Pros: "The crew was amazing. Food was great. Clean bathrooms. Great entertainment."
Cons: "We had our passports and boarding passes checked five times in the course of 2 minutes by five different people one after the next. My cabin luggage was searched right before boarding. I appreciate the need for security, but that was excessive and unnecessary. In the peak of the Corona virus craze, the security made all passengers take off shoes and walk without any protection. This is not Qatar Airways doing - New York JFK security B S, but I am sure airways companies have some say to change it."
Pros: "Excellent crew. Very good food. Comfortable seats."
Pros: "Crew was great and food was nice!"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Seats can get better."
Pros: "So welcoming and so caring"
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "The tv didn’t work throughout the whole flight. Very uncomfortable seats"
Cons: "Food from New York to doha was average. Doha to Karachi excellent. Over all it was excellent experience. People on the ground at doha airport was exceptional. Very courteous and ready to go serve. This is what I call real service."
Pros: "The crew provide good service but personally i did not like the food that could be lot better."
Pros: "The food its disgusting"
Cons: "Better service and better food"
Pros: "From new York to Doha flight seats are not that comfortable."
Pros: "The crew was super amazing and went to all extent to make our journey with infant comfortable"
Pros: "The crew was very nice, courteous and helpful"
Cons: "The seats did not have enough leg space, very cramped. You had bigger, comfortable planes on flight from Doha To Washington DC in 2011."
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Boarding at JFK is very bad. They do not know the meaning of priority. Food from JFK to Doha pretty bad."
Pros: "Crew was very accommodating"
Cons: "WC size (too small) and location. Other airlines such as Lufthansa (NYC - Munich) do way better job in this category ( I believe Lufthansa aircraft was either A330 or 340)"
Pros: "courteous service and a clean modern airplane"
Cons: "The sound system was inadequate on the TV and the headsets were uncomfortable. The queue at the check-in needs to be better controlled, it was a bit chaotic."
Pros: "Qatar is awesome. Amazing service and great new planes."
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Legroom was great Staff were great Bathrooms were very clean and cleaned often in the flight"
Pros: "Excellent meals. Pleasant cabin crew. Good inflight entertainment system and choices. Concerned about short connection in Doha but no problems. Good signage."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Best business class I have ever been on. Better than most First class."
Pros: "Very comfortable flight with excellent service."
Pros: "Went out of their way to be helpful"
Pros: "The plane had everything I could want."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the plane was late, prompting me to miss my connecting flight. These things happen, I understand, but most upsetting was the fact that Qatar Airways provided very little information to those of us missing our flights. While on the plane, when those of us with short layovers mentioned that we may be late, we were told "you'll be fine - they hold the planes for a bit." When we deboarded the plane from New York, we ere wrangled into groups depending on our destinations. Many of us assumed that we were going to be taken to our next flights as we had been told they would be waiting for us. The airline rep in charge of my group refused to tell us any information, however, only admitting after we got confrontational with her that we had missed our flights. She then offered no information about what would happen to us, telling us we'd find out when we got to the rebooking counter. Very unprofessional. I was told that I would have to wait for another 24 hours for the next flight, necessitating that I would spend the night in Qatar. I was put up in a hotel that was decent, but again that offered very little in terms of customer service. We were given an $80 meal allowance, but despite me not using it, I was nickeled and dimed in other aspects to where I ended up paying $20 to help reschedule a flight that I had missed in my destination country. The whole ordeal was a nightmare and mostly due to poor communication and very cold, almost robotic interactions with the QA staff on the ground in Doha."
Cons: "Even though we landed in Doha before our connection left ( barely-20 min)on Qatar airways, they would not hold the connecting flight for the 7 of us who were connecting. This was extremely disappointing as we then lost a full 8 hours of our first day arrival. If they schedule you for a 45 minute connecting flight, I suggest you book a later one. Our flight from NYC left on time but was 20 min late landing. Their only compensation to us all was use of the airport lounge in Doha ( quite nice with free food wine and showers, but would rather have had the extra day in Bali."
Pros: "Excellent service..!"
Pros: "Staff was courteous. Food wasn't too bad. Plane was clean and modern. Ambiance was relaxing. This was a very pleasant flight compared to other airlines."
Pros: "Service, attentiveness, food."
Cons: "lack of ability to pay to upgrade even though there was plenty of empty business class. (Almost all seats were available)"
Pros: "Good service!! Good food!! Great staff!!"
Pros: "This flight failed its purpose of getting me there on time. The delay was not due to inclement weather. Paid more than other airlines charged to get a quick flight but ended taking longer than other flights."
Cons: "The flight left JFK almost an hour late so I missed my connecting flight to Kolkata. Was supposed to arrive Saturday morning for my Father’s funeral but would not make it on time now. A wasted and very disappointing trip! I bought a ticket which would get me there quickest but instead had an extra 8 or 9 hours with an extra stop in Mumbai and layover of 5hrs!"
Pros: "service, food and cleanness"
Pros: "Would be very happy to fly again on qatar if options for Indian food menu is increased"
Cons: "Seats are too small"
Pros: "Worst customer service"
Pros: "Qatar has one of the best service in the world"

Pros: "Clean. Friendly staff. Good food. Good entertainment."
Cons: "Small cramped seats."
Pros: "On time departures Good entertainment options Could charge my electronics"
Cons: "Food was ok Boarding was somewhat disorganized"
Cons: "Food options on both legs were terrible. On the first leg, only one of the three options was actually available. I understand that you have to account for varied decisions by customers, but only having one of the three listed options when you're just half way through the cabin is pretty weak. Disappointed that entertainment options hadn't changed from the previous month."
Pros: "The crew were nice"
Cons: "The screen of my seat and my mom ( sitting next to me) and the lady near the window stopped working after launching and we had to stair in the dark for eleven hours the flight attendant tried but couldn't fix it. The seat itself was broken and I had to put the bottom Cushing back every time I stand up.the cue to the rest room ( one off them has a broken lock so you can't lock it ) was very long and I had to wait for 25 minutes tell I got in ( the first time I waited too long standing in an air plane )"
Cons: "Ran out of meal options in both flights"
Pros: "The food and seats were very comfy."
Pros: "I loved the kind and friendly staff of Qatar airline. They were very organized and helpful. We missed our flight due to delays but they took great car of us and guided us through the process."
Cons: "They seats were too close. The person in front had his seat back and was practically in my lap. Annoying."
Pros: "The entertainment and food was great. The service as well. They are very attentive to any request."
Cons: "The seats feel like a prison at times. It's a pain to ask to go to the bathroom."
Pros: "The staff was good and food as well had a great trip"
It was great. A bit hard to sleep at night but I bet it had to do with the time rather than with the seats :)
Cons: "Airline food could always be better. It wasn’t bad though."
Pros: "Crew was competent"
Cons: "The plane was hot the entire flight"
Cons: "The first leg to Frankfurt was 6 hours late. Missed connection, missed next possible connection, and waiting in line to try to get last possible flight out. Everyone's schedule has been turned upside down."
Pros: "The movies"
Cons: "Flights being on time. Friendlier staff. They would t have misplaced my luggage."
Pros: "Perfect in everything"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Lufthansa are excellent. Makes the US carriers look awful in comparison. Good seats, great service, on time, zero complaints."
Cons: "Some of the other passengers were annoying"
Pros: "We were traveling from IAH gto FRA with two dogs. One in a crate and one in a small carry on dog bag. Lufthansa handled the process very well. They expected us at the airport, helped us through the entire checkin with a smile, helpful information and care. They brought us and our dog to TSA and after boarding confirmed that our dog had been loaded and safely taken care of. The cabin crew also checked on us and our in cabin dog. I don't know any other airline that makes traveling with a dog so easy and pleasant."
Pros: "Great customer service!"
Pros: "Seat was excellent. I like the blanket and more than anything real silverware...unfortunately for bad food"
Cons: "Food real bad, hope it will be better from Frankfurt"
Cons: "Small plane, a price for everything."
Cons: "There was no drink service because of “turbulence”. I did not notice any turbulence."
Cons: "Seats way too small and tight. Flight delayed over and over."
Pros: "Staff was really good"
Pros: "Crew was helpful"
Cons: "The plane was 1 hour late and the plane wasn't even at the gate for its expected departure time. The boarding process was too long and take off took too long, thus causing me to miss my connecting flight. So that I missed my Saturday interview."
Pros: "The airbus looked nice, crew was friendly."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic, the seats were ok. The USB port did not work and the touch screen was unresponsive, hard to use. Four bathrooms in the middle of the plane did not seem sufficient, toilet paper running out, long wait."
Pros: "On time, pleasant, comfortable."
Cons: "Honestly all good!"
Cons: "Got to pick a seat when signing in"
Pros: "Food was great"
Cons: "Hot in cabin and service poor. Seat not comfortable still prefer united clasd"
Pros: "Flight Crew was very nice and helping in general. Flight was very in time and comfortable on both segments."
Cons: "Ground crew at Frankfurt was felt to be discriminatory in behaviour and we had to walk to next departing gate after waiting for our wheelchair."
Pros: "Nice big plane, good/frequent beverage service."
Cons: "Didn’t arrive on time. Breakfast was weird and flavorless."
Pros: "I like everything. Everything orderly and perfect."
Cons: "The screen for viewing movies were not functioning all the time."
Pros: "Well in time"
Cons: "We were not offered veg and non veg options. We were only offered a vegetarian meal. A minute later, the gentleman behind us was presented the two options. We disregarded this on the first flight, but when it happened on the next flight similarly, we asked if we could get our children the chicken meal. The air hostess explained they had no more. But she presented the two options to the fellow passenger behind us. We were extremely offended by the way we were treated. The airlines offers no entertainment for children as do other airlines. In fact, one air hostess went so far as to ask me to tell my Lil one to MUTE the volume of his ipad."
Cons: "Unprofessional behavior of the checkin counter agent at IAH was disappointing. The registration of food choice online didn’t get through hence had to deal with pasta Airbus 380 seats selected by us on the upper deck seemed to lack cushion and hence very uncomfortable"
Cons: "More food favorites"
Pros: "excellent service and crew"
Cons: "Disaster customer service .. cancelled and mtssed flights"
Cons: "Nothing that i can think of."
Cons: "The delay of the flight without thinking of how to take care of the passengers or even appease them after almost 4hours delay"
Pros: "Very helpful and nice cabin crew, very tasty food! And comfortable sitting. Would recommend to a friend."
Cons: "That damn crying kid behind me that kept kicking my chair and crying the whole 8 hours."
Pros: "They did it again, lost my bag for the emth time. But this time its seems to be more complicated than previous times this has happened. Just hope i’ll get my bag back eventually."
Pros: "The food was good and they provided a good amount of snacks and drinks as well. My movie screen would not play with sound and they found me a different seat."
Cons: "The layover time was terrible. Only 1 hour in Frankfurt. I barely made my next flight and that's only because I ran since the boarding time is about 30 minutes before the flight leaves. Their "minimum layover time" needs to be lengthened. I'd like to know if any of the people who make that decision have ever tried to make a flight with such a short layover."
Pros: "Staff was nice. The flight was on time."
Cons: "The touchscreen tv seevice was the slowest I have ever seen. The entertainment options were very limited, even less optikns for kids. The back of my chair was not reclining. The food was terrible. Kids did not eat anything at all."
Pros: "Flights themselves were ok with friendly crew."
Cons: "Only two passport gates for non EU passengers at Frankfurt. Four employees at EU gates sat there and laughed at the angry crowd. Lufthansa should have anticipated this mass of people and had appropriate passport checkers there from that company. "Not our fault" does not cut it. Two planes 600 people each landed at same time. I'd guess a quarter missed connection. The process of rescheduling was a comedy of lies and inefficiency and lack of concern. Worst air travel experience ever. Ruined first two days of my vacation. Oh yea forgot the worst. No air conditioner running on runway at Houston at three in afternoon. Passengers visibly sweating before a nine out overseas flight. Blamed it on a mistake."
Pros: "I enjoyed my experience but the food was not that great ."
Pros: "Staff was friendly and attentive"
Cons: "First of all, the boarding took an hour longer than it should have been so we all sat in the plane dripping with sweat, because it was 100 degrees in Houston and the plane didn't have A/C on until we took off. Food was not good, some mysterious meat they called beef stew and veggies with strange texture. We ended up drinking more since the food was bad. The entertainment choices were OK but the equipment was a bit ancient, my husband's screen ( we sat in the front where screen pulled out of the seat) was broken and was held by a duct tape(???!!!) The seats are small, I have flown with other companies on transatlantic flights and their seats are bigger and more comfortable in economy class."
Pros: "The seats are normal, the food was fine, but the service was lovely, smooth and always with a smile. We left arrived in Frankfurt almost on time and I would definitely fly Lufthansa again!"
Pros: "Flight crew was decent."
Cons: "The flight was late in departing and then rerouted from Frankfurt to Manchester causing many passengers to loose connection. The reasongiven was a crew scheduling issue. Compensation upon arrival at Frankfurt was nil unless you asked and if you did you got an insulting 7 euros which barely even paid for coffee. No apology to people given just a "business as usual, it is your problem attitude". At arrival in Frankfurt there was a pass the buck attitude where any questions of connecting flights, and reroutes was forwarded to a Lufthansa counter that was NOT manned by anyone. Very frustrated."
Pros: "There service helping us with the boarding process was phenomenal!"
Pros: "Extremely roomy seats! So glad to have the room after a cramped flight from Europe!"
Pros: "It was UA. Not Lufthansa."
Pros: "Comfort, yummy food, exceptional customer service, but the best part had to be the amazing service when checking in at IAH.....the lady who checked us in delivered the best customer service I have ever received by an airline....I would love if she received some appreciation....she was super professional, courteous, friendly to my daughter, explained everything and made sure I understood, and then said "I'll see you upstairs Mrs. Manderfeld to help you further....at the gate" WOW! If only all airline check was like this!"
Cons: "The whole experience was fantastic! I've always rated and preferred Emirates and Etihad but this airline experience has changed my mindset....Thank you!"
Pros: "We requested a special meal to accommodate multiple food allergies, and they both promised and provided it."
Pros: "Lots of entertainment. Everything fine."
Pros: "Movie selection was great, food was ok as was the service."
Cons: "Boarding and deplaning was nothing short of a cattle call. No plane ettiquette and no direction from the crew on how to properly deplane. I am a 6'2" tall person stuck in between two 300+ men. Not only did I feel uncomfortable I felt unsafe. When I asked if I could upgrade to premium economy or even business it was a straight no without even looking in the system to see if their were open seats. The girl in front of me ate with her seat reclined which allowed me a whole inch of space to bring my food to my mouth. Terrible airline and terrible experience. If I could cuss in this review I would."
Cons: "My luggage was ripped open."
Arrived in London on time - to be kept waiting on the tarmac for an hour to find a gate. Very frustrating.
Pros: "The fact that we had dinner and a snack was great! The crew were fantastic!"
Cons: "It was a bit cramped but overall it was a wonderful experience"
Cons: "The least comfortable and smallest narrow business class seats ever"
Cons: "The planes floor plan showed bathrooms which I avoided. But there were none at that spot so we lost out on more comfy seats."
Pros: "Great communication from all aspects of crew etc during our delay. Fantastic flight crew who are very sweet and caring. I also enjoyed that we had meals on the flight and didn’t have to pay. That is such a simple but wonderful things."
Cons: "Delayed due to storms etc. Never ideal."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and the pilot did an excellent job getting us there safe."
Cons: "The food they served was not the greatest"
Pros: "Soft drinks + food"
Pros: "Our airline steward was incredible."
Pros: "I like being serviced dinner on the flight. I like the personal iPad to watch movie."
Cons: "The seating was a little tight."
Pros: "The food was surprisingly tasty for an airplane - it looked horrific but that’s of no importance. The airplane staff was very friendly and generous, possibly due to delays everywhere."
Cons: "Delayed takeoffs on both legs of the flight, combined with absolutely awful layout at Heathrow which made us nearly miss our connecting flight. Why do we have to go through security again in London?"
Pros: "Friendly FA, good entertainment options."
Cons: "The seat density BA has put on the 787 is ridiculous for a long haul flight. Impossible for a grown adult to get comfortable with the narrow seat pitch on this aircraft."
Pros: "The reclining seat in Club section was a wonderful experience"
Cons: "British food still lacks taste."
Pros: "Almost everythibg was great"
Cons: "The screen wasnt working properly"
Pros: "Comfortable seat, good dinner, decent entertainment selection, a few very good crew members."
Cons: "IFE screens are rather small for it being a brand new plane."
Pros: "Simple trip no delays and pretty quick Flight time."
Cons: "Nothing to report"
Cons: "There was preferential treatment for British passengers - they were taken care of first and with a friendly tone."
Pros: "Friendly and attentive flight staff, excellent entertainment, pilot's candid messages."
Cons: "Strange seat layout. It felt crowded."
Pros: "It's British Airways so no frills really, just a cheap flight going to New York"
Cons: "Service as a whole is nothing more than a 3 star"
Cons: "Bumpy but not BA’s fault"
Pros: "Pleasant staff, trying to put a brave face on standards they know are slipping"
Cons: "No breakfast, no snacks, tired seats, poor entertainment , dreadful food (and I LOVE airline food!)"
Pros: "My seat was comfortable, with good head and neck support."
Cons: "BA doesn't allow guitars as carry ins, unlike most every other overseas carrier. That's a major negative for me, and I've spread the word to other musicians who will avoid the company. Terrible policy."
Cons: "Did not get seat I reserved. Stuck in middle seat. Very late."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "The crew was great & the food was good. Service was good."
Cons: "BA doesn’t let you reserve seats when you book your flights, even for business class, never heard of that with any other airline, that’s just not right when you are spending so much money. Luckily for me the seat next to me was vacant, hence it was fine, otherwise it would have been very uncomfortable as it is a little too tight. on the 777 having 8 seats in a row is a tight space even with all the configuration."
Cons: "Paying $7000+ For a seat like this is a travesty"
Cons: "Plane was late which caused us to miss our connection and spend an extra 12 hours traveling to Gothenburg"
Pros: "Nothing to complain about. Everything excellent."
Pros: "Games at the tv."
Cons: "Food do not tase good. Very litle space in the economic flys. You make bigger plains with less spaces I was feeling like a bag of potatoes"
Pros: "Leg room seats"
Cons: "London transfer had to go through security again almost missed flight I'm sure some people didn't make it"
Cons: "Cramped seats. Entertainment system did not work well."
Cons: "Awesome staff! Great food and tea!"
Pros: "Both the staff and flight were great!"
Pros: "We Arrived safely. The captain explained the situations well."
Cons: "We left late and arrived late. They ran out of one of the menu items."
Pros: "Very little."
Cons: "Seats are ridiculously small! I'm only 5'11" and could barely fit. I can't imagine what it's like for a taller man. It's also the first time I ever broke into a sweat on a flight. There are no overhead vents! Complaints to the staff were met with a surly reply that nothing could be done. Food was inedible. Movies were ok but they put the box for the equipment under the seat in front of you! What little space we have for our feet is now taken up by the entertainment equipment!! I've had much better experiences on discount regional airlines than on this trans-Atlantic "premium" carrier."
Cons: "Four hours before departure, the flight was canceled! Unfortunately, the ticket workers were too few in trying to reboot all the passengers. I was transferred to United after an hour and a half wait but was sent back to Aer Lingus (who was operating the flight for BA) by United because the Aer Lingus ticket personnel made the reservation on United but failed to provide the information necessary to generate the ticket. Never British Airways/ Aer Lingus again!"
Pros: "Plane was nice"
Cons: "Didn't get food order correct"
Cons: "Seats are too small for anybody above 5'8". My knees were hitting the back"
Pros: "Inflight entertainment with access to recent movies. Service was good."
Cons: "Fee for assigned seating. No outlets for charging electronic devices."
Pros: "Great customer service all around! Staff was very responsive and apologetic to an unfortunate mid flight experience of a baby throwing up"
Cons: "All good!"
Pros: "the plane was spceous in the economy section. comparatively new aircraft and well maintained, the cabin crew were very co-operative, graceous and well behaved. overall good experience."
Cons: "the starting of serving non-veg food took very long time. british airways should focuss attention to this."
Cons: "The airline overbooked the flight and kicked us, along with 100 other passengers, off the flight and forced us onto a non-direct flight. They violated Passenger Rights, and every member of their staff treated us incredibly rudely. Due to their violations and illegal behavior, I am seeking legal counsel and plan to take the necessary action. I DO NOT recommend British Airways and will NEVER fly the airline again."
Pros: "British Airway's service is cordial and comfortable, which goes a long way to making the entire trip the same. Obviously they have no or little control over potholes in the air and wind turbulence."
Cons: "The flight was scheduled to arrive 2 hours before our connecting BA flight departed Heathrow. Unfortunately because of loading delays on our original flight, we arrived in Heathrow 40 minutes late. The crew said that 60 minutes is the designated minimum but we used all of the 80 minutes plus, and it airport was NOT crowded. If BA is connecting to BA, then you have a responsibility ahead of time to address this problem and keep connecting passengers from getting overly distressed in a strange airport."
Pros: "New planes"
Cons: "Bad food. Very few portions. Serving drinks only once and making one pick a beverage for the meal and nothing mere."
Pros: "Maybe to other people the service was regular - but this was the fanciest flight I'd ever been on. The crew was great - never actually knew that much technology was available on the plane. I'm not a very fancy person and this was a really fun way to fly."
Pros: "Crew was attentive and polite."
Cons: "When the person in front of you lowers his seat 5 minutes after takeoff and keeps it down the whole flight, it makes it hard to eat and really uncomfortable. I have a LOT of miles (avieos or whatever they call them) but never get offered an upgrade to economy plus like I do on other airlines."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very pleasant. Blankets were nicer than most. Headrests on seat were good once figured out how to adjust it."
Cons: "It is bad enough being in economy seats on international flights, but now the box holding the electronics for the entertainment system takes up about 1/3rd of the under seat space. So trying to stretch out and sleep was very difficult and uncomfortable. Curry chicken was disgusting."
Pros: "Back facing window seat, flat bed, great service, good food, arrival on time"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth, the attendants attendant, the food surprisingly good, and the entertainment outstanding. An entire library of in-flight movies, a display of where your flight is in the world, a few in-lfight games and even an in-flight chatroom."
Cons: "A few times, I feel like the attendants either didn't notice me."
Cons: "Food unpleasant taste"
Used old flight. Seats not comfortable. Entertainment systems not working.
I know this is Africa but the plane seats could be more comfortable
Cons: "The entertainment console doesn’t work"
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: "wery slow working."
Cons: "The fod. Never Etiopian again."
Cons: "It was over booked. I wasted my precious time in the airport for half day... and the staff of ethiopian were not kindness."
Cons: "1 hr delay in departure from Lusaka. Plastic cutlery was difficult to eat with. More frequent water/drinks (or waterbottles instead of little cups) would have been appreciated. Movie options were not as good as other airlines."
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"
Pros: "New airplane was comfortable and clean. Food was just okay."
Cons: "We had to transit in Addis (connecting from Dakar) and the whole experience of going through the Addis airport, getting the voucher for the hotel, and going to the hotel was horrible: it took forever going through immigration and getting a simple stamp on the voucher (the latter an unsafe experience and time consuming, with hundreds of people piled up to get those stamps from just two people, crashing again each other, with no order, no lines). Somewhat there has to be a better way to manage this and make the experience safer and more comfortable to everybody. For instance, just enforcing to stay in line and organizing the lines would have saved everybody a lot of time and effort."
Pros: "The landing was smooth and so was the whole flight! Loved it"
Cons: "Food. I ended up throwing up shortly after eating"
Pros: "After the Kigali Addisababa segment this was vastly superior with a newer aircraft"
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: "Everything starting from the check in to on board restrooms"
Cons: "Lounge seating and services. Boarding. Lots of uncontrollable people trying to be first to board."
Cons: "Crews could have greet and serve passengers with a warm smile. Food was acceptable but not as good as Japan / Korean airlines . I suppose the low airfares reflect its Servicr."
Pros: "luggage take time to receive , over 1 h"
Cons: "luggage tale long time to receive"
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: "I have only flown one better airline.....Emirates. The crew service was unbelievable. Wonderful experience. I have a new primary international travel carrier!"
Pros: "The crew was professional yet very friendly. Everything was great. Enjoyed my trip"
Cons: "The plane was shaking everywhere thought I was gonna die"
Pros: "friendliness of staff. special attention given to my 22 mo old granddaughter. adorable!"
Pros: "Everything..state of the earth big jet..smootflight..very nice crew...hard like 3 bottles of white wine..very surprised that Ethiopian airlines can perform marvelously well..will continue flying them"
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"
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"

Cons: "My daughter's entertainment system crashed after 20 minutes. She ended up sleeping so I watched a movie. When she woke up, we were going to switch seats, but I tried to turn it back on and mine wasn't working. (By the end of the flight, only maybe 10-20% were using theirs as many others crashed as well.) The food was very boring. At one point I was looking for a flight attendant and couldn't find a single one anywhere in coach."
Pros: "Would have liked to have seen more of the cabin crew, but they were pleasant."
Cons: "Food choice was limited. Ethiopian often ran out of meals and just gave me whatever option they had left. Entertainment system didn't always work properly."
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."
