Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Food poor going to Munich , legroom poor."
Cons: "better accommodation of passangers"
Pros: "Everything except the checking in process"
Pros: "I'm tall so the suit was somewhat uncomfortable."
Cons: "Other than the tight space I have no other complaints."
Cons: "You canceled my trip"
Pros: "Baggage arrived with me. Upgraded to First Class because so many of those passengers got other flights the night before."
Cons: "Original 5 pm flight was cancelled because there was no Crew or plane, even though it’s a United hub. Though flight cancelled early, United could not get me home same day so provided hotel and meal. Next day flight scheduled 7:05 then 8 am, but even that time came and went without boarding. 15 hours delayed and no hurry getting the plane to depart at the stated time. Total lack of customer service and concern"
Pros: "The boarding process was well organized and fast."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that the United flight I came in on was over a MILE of corridors away from the outgoing flight."
Cons: "2 hours Delayed and operated by United ..."
Cons: "The temperature on the airplane was uncomfortably warm. Not sure what was up with the AC but I had to change clothes and freshen up once arriving at my layover."
Cons: "The flight left 19 minutes early, stranding 7 people who were connecting from New Orleans. We ran across the entire airport and made it to the gate before departure time. The employee at Lufthansa Senator lounge was nice enough to tell us that the crew must have felt like leaving early. She was very nonchalant about the whole issue. She also refused to assist us, and told us we needed to exit the airport and reenter through the ticketing counter. I upheld my end of the deal by reaching the gate in time. This situation needs to be rectified."
Cons: "We were unable to fly this trip."
Pros: "The seat 16A is very comfortable and spacious. Most of the hosts were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "My screen did not function well and sound was very poor. I had to have my computer 'rebooted' two times. The second time was done by a gentleman who was a bit sarcastic when I asked if he could help me, as I had waited 20+ minutes for the help to get it going again. You need to update your system!"

It took over an hour to get to talk with someone and then we had to wait for another half hour before we could get our voucher for a room and breakfast after having no dinner! Really bad, but the next day we had an easy flight, just got to our destination late and missed several tours we had booked."

Cons: "1 1/2 hour delay out of EBB meant missing the connecting flight -- not uncommon apparently. No one was available at the transfer desk in Cairo for over an hour. The alternative through Rome & onwards put us into Munich in late evening."
Pros: "The crew was good but the seats werenot comfortable. Almost all passengers were coming from Al-Haj. They were so sick and coughing vigourously all the time."

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: "Service was good Airplane was good .while some European air lines are cutting on service Egypt Air was generous. Entertainment was good too."
Cons: "Boarding as usual un organized."
Cons: "I couldn't get my boarding passes online or at the airport kiosk after already checking in online before getting to the airport. I had to wait over an hour in line at the checkin desk just to get my boarding passes. The boarding process in Cairo was even more chaotic with unnecessary multiple disorganized checkpoints and line ups."

Pros: "It was a short flight that landed"
Cons: "We boarded the flight without problem but when we got on the plane a man was in one of our seats. He refused to leave the seat that was ours and the crew seemed scared and said okay sir and told us to give up our window seat and now sit in the middle. Clearly a downgrade! The flight crew seemed as if they were scared to enforce the rules and that they didn't want to bother the man. This did not make us feel comfortable on the flight or have faith in the crew."
Pros: "Overall was good"
Cons: "Boarding time is too long and the security check point is slow"
Pros: "The comfort of the seats"
Cons: "1. No entertainment as the screen of the seat was broken! 2. The food was not up to the standards of a business class! 3. The crew was not responsive enough!"
