Cons: "I will never forget Turkish airlines again. They stole our money. We were at our flight on time but they wouldn't let us board. They then said we were no shows and cancelled all our remaining flights with no refund. This ended up costing us around $3000. We don't have this kind of money and I don't know how we will pay rent next month."

Although I'm not wheelchair bound, I have great difficulty walking distances with fear of falling. I was never offered some assistance by the Houston airport or the airline at this point. The seating on the plane is difficult to maneuver for a disabled person. The flight was OK except for cramped spaces. The flight left on time and that was good considering Houston had just gone through the hurricane."

So I paid $150 more over the other airlines for the lay flat seating on my 8 hour flight from Katmandu to Istanbul and another 10 hours on to JFK. Well the seats weren't lay flat so I feel like I got played by Kayak and didn't have a very comfortable flight."

Pros: "The cabin was to warm"
Cons: "The cabin was to warm"
Pros: "Great seat easy flight. The food always seem to be the same. I wish they would change it up every once in a while. I've been on this flight 14 times this year and its always exactly the same.."
Cons: "The gate was under construction in Seattle, and it was impossible to hear the gate agents."

Also liked that the plane's arrival at Schiphol was only 30 minutes later than initial ETA after long delay at Seatac. Also liked the many snacks."
Cons: "Prolonged delay of flight departure. Choices of entertainment, especially movies."
Cons: "Old cramped untidy and limited drink service"
Pros: "Good food, excellent service"
Cons: "Seats did not have enough storage."
Cons: "Seats a bit cramped"
Cons: "The fact they wasted two days of my trip with my son travelling from the U.S. to China because they didn't know about transit visa regulations. And so far they offered a 75 dollar voucher for participating merchants. Unacceptable"
Pros: "Crew was excellent everything served was of great quality, all the amenities were solid and flight was comfortable and on time."
Cons: "The only complaint was the extreme use of air conditioning that made it a necessity to use many blankets to keep warm from freezing."
Pros: "Wifi for entertainment worked well"
Cons: "No longer have entertainment on back of seats"
Pros: "Getting to China, albeit two days late."
Cons: "The fact that the lack of knowledge regarding international travel visas by the counter staff and supervisor meant that two days of the vacation were lost. Upon arrival in China the 144 hour travel visa was granted with no problem within minutes, but the U.S. staff was completely befuddled by the possibility. The interrogation was completely stressful and resulted in a reschedule of the original flight and during the second attempt at flying even an email from the U.S. consulate with a link to the Shanghai/Chinese government immigration site was deemed "not official enough". i will be expecting proper compensation. I was once given an $850 travel voucher for voluntarily giving up my seat, and was flown first class to Hawaii, given 4 star accomodation and then flown first class on to China within 48 hours. This was an involuntary bump from our chosen flight time, all because of a lack of knowledge about current visa regulations and international law on the part of the check in staff. We have been loyal Delta users for over 15 years, and this was the biggest blunder ever. Also humiliating and extremely frustrating, stressful and a big problem with fulfilling our travel plans between son and father."
Pros: "The entertainment system had a wide selection of good movies to watch."
Cons: "The seat was busted and could barely recline at all."
Pros: "Great staff, polite and helpful"
Cons: "Small seats"
Pros: "Very attentative."
Cons: "Aircraft was smelling bad! Hygiene is the key"
Pros: "Helpful staff. Never felt rushed if I had a question. The special meal (VLML) was excellent. Tasty, filling and nutritious Plenty of foot room in economy."
Pros: "Nice Pajamas. Individual window seat. Decent food."
Cons: "Seat ptich could be/should be - wider. Snacks can be better and have better option.. ( only Apple for a fruit? Gimme a break)"
Pros: "Nothing. Delta sucks!"
Cons: "Poor management prior boarding"
Pros: "The movies."
Cons: "Horrible food and Very very uncomfortable seats. Absolutely NO leg room. One of these days Delta is going to be sued for deep vein thrombosis (blood clot)."
Cons: "Crew forget to feed quarter of passenger, and did it after reminder from passenger. No movies with Russian translation or titles. Flight arrived at Amsterdam 50 min later, and we missed our direct flight to Kiev"
Pros: "Economy seats are comfortable. I wasn't compressed in any way sitting in a window seat. Delta is my go-to airline. Not always the least expensive, but it's usually a pleasant trip."
Cons: "I was disappointed to be overcrowded in my seat. I sat next to a man who was too large to position the arm rest between us down. And as such, he took up about 1/3 of my seat. It was a really cramped flight and although I was polite, it's still very frustrating to pay for a seat, but only get access to 2/3 of it. I am 6'1, so every inch of my seat is typically used. It would be nice if there was a way to ensure this didn't happen. If people need more than 1 seat, they should be required to pay for more than one seat, and not 'steal' my space. Overall bad Delta experience. Sara"
Cons: "Must have been an older Delta jet. It had no entertainment. The wifi was poor."
Cons: "Missed original connection, booked on a three hour later flight that was delayed another hour, then three hours. Finally switched to Alaska 2 hours prior to departure. Was assured our bags would be on Alaska flight. They weren't. One eventually showed up in Spokane at 2 a.m. on a Delta flight the other on a separate Alaska flight at 3 a.m."
Cons: "Not enough sitting space felt very cramped"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful."
Cons: "This flight was delayed 5+ hours past its scheduled 12:15 departure due to mechanical issues with the plane. Delta was only able to offer a $50 travel voucher for this huge inconvenience."
Pros: "Finally, a free movie! Now, whoever picks the movie needs to do a better job, but atleast it was something! Service was Excellent, first pass with snack and drink carts, then they came through with coffee, and again with water! Now, that's service! Great job! Very friendly staff."
Cons: "Bathrooms, once again... disgusting. Urine on the floor, smelled awful. Tiny bathrooms, only 1 up front"
Cons: "Boarding was 30 minutes late."
Cons: "I was surrounded by a basketball team. They all have terrible breath. I know that because they kept talking to each other and I was in the middle (literally) of it all. Thanks Delta airlines!"
Pros: "The gate agents were friendly and made the boarding process quick."
Cons: "This was my connecting flight, and also left late. I can't really rate the crew on either flight, because I didn't see them. It's also impossible for me to rate the food/beverage service, because there was none. I spent over 3 hours on planes, and no beverage service was provided. If you have connecting flights, are flying for business, or don't pack your own refreshments assuming that something standard services will be, well, standard, Delta is probably not who you want to fly with. I work in the industry and sm usually not this brutally honest, but the whole trip was pretty disappointing."
Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "Seats are tiny! I'm 6' 3", and those seats are horrible!! So small!"
Pros: "Overall, the flight was good. It actually wasn't a Delta flight but an Alaska Airlines flight."
Cons: "The aircraft was new model 737-800, very nice! Except the seats are a bit hard. Not good for a 5 hour flight. What really made me angry is I paid for a Delta flight. What difference does it make!? On long Delta flights, you get a meal (you pay for it in the cost of your ticket), but I was put on an Alaska Airlines flight where the meals are $7.50! I think that if Delta puts you on an affiliated airline, they should pick up the tab for the meal. Entertainment is via your smartphone. Don't have a smartphone, no problem, cough up $10 for a 2 bit tablet to watch a movie!"
Pros: "I fly several times a year. I usually fly Southwest, I've never been happy with my experience with them. Delta has great customer service that makes me feel that I"m important to them. The flight attendants are very friendly, helpful, and genuine. It"s a nice added touch when the pilot stands there and greets the passangers. If I have a choice, I will never fly with any other airlines."
Cons: "extremely cramped and me knees were in the back of the next seat, (I'm 6'1")."
Pros: "On time. Came around with water often."
Cons: "Just said we were being served a meal on my ticket and we didn't get one. Probably just as well since it was a turbulent take off and landing :-)"
Cons: "Never got to fly it. The prior flight was so delayed I missed it."
Cons: "Sat in very back and seats didn't recline"
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!)"
Pros: "Due to business I travel allot so I deal with allot of airlines. This is by far the best airlines I have used. Excellent crew and airport staff. I don’t think words can express how satisfied I am with this airlines and airport. The nicest people and great service. Clean and modern aircraft. Going to try flying only with KLM from now on."
Pros: "The crew from Kili to DarEsSalam was tired. A fresh crew worked from DarEsSalam to AMS and they were great."
Cons: "The boarding process was chaotic. The passengers in the first boarding group had to fight through the crowd because there were no boarding lanes."
Pros: "Very friendly and responsive crew. Announcements from the Capitan and chief of flight attendants are very informative and comforting. Seat positions: very good leg room (even in economy)!"
Cons: "Newer airplane, as 747s are kind of outdated now, especially for long distance flights. But overall had good experience with KLM"
Pros: "Great atmosphere, crew was excellent!"
Cons: "I’m 6’5”, so legroom can always be a complaint, but this wasn’t too bad. The plane appeared to be fairly old and didn’t have WiFi. Entertainment also was on an older screen which was navigated by using an old in-seat phone."
Pros: "The crews were pretty great!"
Cons: "The regulating of the temperature."
Cons: "Seats in economy section are very close together . There is not enough room for knees...especially for such a long trip."
Pros: "Good amount of space on the plane, lots of movies to watch, good food and drink."
Pros: "Fantastic gate agents!"
Cons: "The food was terrible."
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "The crew was amazing, flight on schedule and good entertainment."
Cons: "Space is just reasonable on a long flight, even if there's seats more spacious that you could choose if you pay more."
Cons: "Don’t be late"
Pros: "Seats super comfy. Ended up with 3 seats to myself that formed a bed for the lap Uk to NZ. Very nice!"
Pros: "Great plane and staff"
Cons: "I bought tickets thrue you for me two months ago Iit went well but on the last few days I also bought ticked for my brother and his wife and it was a disaster night mare for them bound for Montpellier too to attend a wedding the damn suitcase didn’t get to final destination it was at Orlando but got"
Cons: "I called for a crew member 5 times and waited 25 minutes for anyone to help me with just some water. I had to get up and go to the very back of the plane to ask for some water. The plane was hot and no air to be found. This was all after we had to get back off the plane before takeoff. It was terrib"
Pros: "We got to Amsterdam on time"
Cons: "1. Paying for the seats we chose...that will never happen again...I'll fly another airline first. 2. The food was terrible. I have flown KLM for years, this was not what I expected. 3. The plane was very dirty"

Cons: "Nothing to say"

Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Nice flight ...was comfortable travel ...good food.Thanks"
Cons: "No such things"
Pros: "The boarding was easy and you didn't have to wait inline for that long"
Cons: "KLM needs to upgrade the entertainment. It was very hard to see the images on the screen. The planes that KLM uses are old and they sure need to be upgraded."
Cons: "Nothing good to say about this flight. The plane was old with no entertainment. The sits where very compact and not comfortable at all. The food was a sweet bread and water. The flight attendants were rushing and will take a while if you needed anything. I felt like I was taking a bus with graffiti all over the place."
Pros: "Sound was broken on my TV set!"
Cons: "Called stewardess twice to assist. No response!"
Pros: "Pleasant flight"
Cons: "Tiny old cramped plane."
Pros: "Flight was on time and quick and comfortable"

Pros: "Crew was friendly..business class seat was very comfortable and seemed wider than most Nice power outlets great entertainment system"
Cons: "Row 6 in business is after the first 5 rows and Galley and restroom. Very awkward"
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: "That I was forced to check my baggage. I never received a chain ticket for my luggage. The flight has a 32 hour layover and KLM lost my luggage and it was not found until a week after my arrival back home. I still have not received my bag at this time. The boarding crew was manually tracking who boarded and who didn't. It was a cluster."
Cons: "Klm flight has very congested seating Getting information about eticket was pain"
Pros: "Overall, my trip to Cardiff via Amsterdam was smooth and delightful. I've flown a few short trips this summer and I was pleasantly surprised to find KLM still offered complimentary snacks. What a refreshing change!"
Cons: "There was no entertainment which is why I assigned that category only one star. The boarding process in Amsterdam could have been a bit smoother. Announcements were no clear."
Pros: "Short, comfortable flight. Nothing special. Got us where we needed to be without incident."
Cons: "Nothing. This is filler text to meet the min. characters."
Pros: "Staff, service"
Pros: "Unexpected surprise--even on a 1 hour flight at noon, they gave us a sandwich!"
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Having to pay extra to pick a seat prior to check-in. I didn't, and got a decent seat anyway."
Cons: "Very slow service. I wanted to by several goods from duty free. But crew served only first 20 rows of aircraft."
Pros: "Flight was on time, crew professional, food and drinks good and kept coming. I learnt Dutch on the in-flight entertainment system. I was in a good mood talking to another passenger about his new luggage system. This mood was kept and not taken away on the flight."
Cons: "Would be nice if there was wifi on board"
Cons: "Stranded for 48 hours in Africa. Missed 3 flights due to complete incompetence, truly a horrible experience."
Pros: "There's almost no padding to them and they're very narrow. I know it's nothing new but I'll keep complaining until something changes, if ever."
Cons: "The crew was wonderful, the food was extremely good for economy cabin standards."
Cons: "It was over booked the flight 2 times on the way Seychelles........ It was tired journey definitely..."
Cons: "Good crew"
Pros: "Asked for water that I never received. Wasn’t allowed to bathroom although still 20 min until landing and other people still got up"
Cons: "Crew members paying more attention to the passengers, more option of food, being on time and cleaning after another flight."
Pros: "The landing was smooth and so was the whole flight! Loved it"
Cons: "Food. I ended up throwing up shortly after eating"
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Cons: "They need to improve on thier inflight menu and the check-in and boarding experience"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and all flight details were available and constantly updated."
Cons: "Ethiopians App for self check-in."
Pros: "The flight was four hours delayed in Djibouti and there was absolutely zero, NO communication, whatsoever, provided by the Djibouti Ethiopian Airlines staff what was going on, how long the flight was going to be delayed, or if it was actually complete canceled for that evening."
Cons: "Flight ET365 was scheduled to leave Djibouti at 19:00 but did not leave until 23:30, without any screen information or by the Ethiopian Airlines staff at JIB airport how long the delay would be or if the flight was completely cancelled. Extremely unprofessional and ignorant handling of the situation"
Pros: "Fast gate work."
Cons: "Lost luggage and the food and silent movie option (no headphones provided for overhead movie)"
Pros: "The arm rest was dismantled and had a sharp edge of metal which sliced my arm and thumb when I sat down. I was promised a new seat and never delivered. Horrendous."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Crew was helpful. I had 3 seats to myself, so yes. Seating was amazing."
Cons: "The lunch - tooo much rice no sauce. Food was okay. The sandwich was good."
Cons: "Was nice best"
Pros: "I like the Direct route"
Cons: "Long wait time at checkin Only certain employees accepted money for extra baggage fees Long time boarding Most staff were friendly An employee on board with short hair was not nice and her hair wasn’t professional Paid $160 for the extra bag, but it was lost It is still lost!"
Pros: "I received flying miles for this flight, well actually I really tried to find something positive to say"
Cons: "spent 19+ hrs in the airport in Addis Abeba, when I was supposed to be transferred to a hotel, needless to say, the airport at night is not the best place a woman would like to spend her time."
Pros: "Landing on time"
Cons: "Limited choice of food- no vegetarian options, only meat."
Pros: "Check-in staff at desk ,claiming not working for Ethiopian Airlines only providing service to Ethiopian Airlines therefore unable to in depth questions."
Pros: "Amazingly smooth flight and landing."
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."
Pros: "gud space"
Cons: "Should be aware of the destination in terms of offering meals. very pathetic."
Pros: "Boeing 737 - 800 us great"
Cons: "Waiting room at Gate 1B"
Pros: "nothing was exceptional good."
Cons: "luggage did not arrive. airport services were not good."
Cons: "Besides that the flight was 4 hours delayed and the staff gave different information then the screen, customer service was non existant. There seems to be no structure or system. Gate change was not announced. Staff was not clear or direct about status of the flight. I have had several flights with EA and most have been completely disappointing and frustrating. Forget trying to call anyone, it took me 4 days of non stop calls to connect with someone to change my flight date. Then once connected the credit card system was apparently down and they could not charge my fee. I had to contact the US office while I was in Africa in order to get anything done, ridiculous. They over charged me and would not honor the fees that were quoted on the phone and via email but the head office. Dishonest and no concern for the inconvenience to their customers. This airline would be the last choice, highly not recommended."
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: "Boarding was smooth. Slept most of the flight. Windows were cool (tint control)"
Cons: "Food was sub par. Leg room limited."
Pros: "Spacious seats"
Cons: "80's airplane. Old. Seats not that comfortable, a bit dirty."
Cons: "I had to purchase the upgrade to business class at the airport. On your site business class was not available."
Pros: "Great crew, decent food"
Cons: "everything about it, from the random cancellation of my flight, to missing my connection, and their inability to get me another flight, spending over 24 hours in travel for a mere 6 hour flight. No customer service, would never recommend Ethiopian Airlines to anyone."
Pros: "Good food and drinks"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and professional."
Cons: "They lost my bag, there was no announcement that the flight was boarding."
Cons: "They almost didnt let me on the plane after THEY messed up by not including my ticket number on my ticket. I had to call my parents in Washington DC from Nairobi, have them drive out to Dulles airport and work it out at the Ethiopian office there to give the OK for me to get checked in in Nairobi. The whole process took about four hours and three managers all while I was stewing, worried I wouldnt make it on my flight."
Cons: "We boarded around midnight and after supper, I am accustomed to a few hours of the lights turned off for rest. Even though I requested the crew said it was not policy and I should use the yellow mask (which sadly does not block out the light). I think a few hours off dimmed lights would greatly enhance comfort levels."
Cons: "Staff didn't seem very efficient. Flight sat on runway for awhile and braking was very abrupt. Bags took too long at the dar airport."
Pros: "Customer service was great and the restrooms were cleaned regularly unlike some long haul flights where it's not the case."
Pros: "Excellent friendly service on both legs of journey. CC were easily the highlight. Meals in economy were mucccch better than in business class which is mind boggling. They've got to get this element right. My biz meals looked like it was just dumped on my plate pretty embarrassing. Onboard entertainment could also be improved ...."
Pros: "The crew were all very friendly and welcoming."
Cons: "The food options need to be more varied."
Cons: "The flight schedule was changed and despite contacting Ethiopian multiple times, they did not comprehend the problem. I was scheduled from Dar to Blantyre to Lilongwe then to Blantyre AGAIN, my obvious final destination. Luckily the crew at Malawian Airlines allowed me off the plane early and edited my booking for the return journey efficiently and easily."
Cons: "Seats were dirty"
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Service & Staff"
Cons: "Toilets always get messy because there are many people flying for the first time and some using a public toilet (or even flush toilet) for first time ever. They need instructions in the bathroom for how to use the toilet, how to keep it clean, how to dispose of trash, how to flush toilet paper, etc. If fly all over the world, but every time I fly from Africa it's the same mess, regardless of airline. Simple instructions would help - they cannot assume all of their clients have used flush toilets when over 80% of Africans do not have them."
Pros: "Paid about 1000 round trip. Staff was attentive and respectful specially addis to LA. New aircraft was good and comfortable."

Pros: "The flight was delayed 4 hrs"
Pros: "Half empty plane was the best part of the flight."
Cons: "People treated the plane like it was their home. People threw trash on the ground, let their kids run around. It sucked."
Pros: "Lots of empty seats for sleeping. Nice big windows- best in class. Two hot meals served on board."
