I liked the crew and how responsive they were. The entertainment was nil as the headphone connection was poor which resulted in NO entertainment for the 12 hour flight. I am 6ft.2in and do not fit in the Q suites well for sleeping.

I liked the crew and how responsive they were. The entertainment was nil as the headphone connection was poor which resulted in NO entertainment for the 12 hour flight. I am 6ft.2in and do not fit in the Q suites well for sleeping.

Among all the international travels, I think Cathay was the best followed by Emirates. Qatar seems to be at the bottom of the list in my experience. They did not even have a strategy to house long layover guests and also would not grant visas. Still using Covid excuse, as if their country is so clear and clean of the pandemic.

Poor boarding services, especially for business class. Long time at the bus to the airplane.

Food and entertainment needs to be updated. I understand the majority of clients but not everyone can eat spicy food . I wish they have some sandwiches snacks or kids friendly food.

Qatar airways Customer service was terrible especially in Baghdad office! They were very unprofessional, helpless and very rude!

Cons: "Having to wear The face vizor is silly"

I lost $ buying, because custom in Doha had to take bottle. Its not right. Qatar custom could see in Belgrade and didn't tell me and the same in the Duty Free shop."
Pros: "The hospitable from the crew, the food was great, but i miss my separate connection flight, eventhough i was on time to board, they boarding desk told me my bag is behind, so they could not let me fly. I bought another ticket for my connection flight."

Cons: "long flight"

Cons: "may be the fact that it was the same kind of food in both of the flights I had, is not that it was bad just in my opinion they should have more option, especially for south american people, thank you"
Pros: "Very Good Company"
Pros: "Everything except food"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "On demand entertainment systems seem standard, as I’ve flown Qatar several times and always had it. Friendly staff. And Doha is a great connection airport."
Cons: "."
Pros: "Great crew members. Very friendly and helpful. Qatar Airways is great about providing pillows, blankets, ear plugs and eye masks. Really good food as well."
Cons: "The seats were very close together. With the tray folded out it was right against me without being extended. Leg room was cramped."
Pros: "Comfort of the seat/bed"
Pros: "The airline stewardesses were Fabulous! Especially one from Doha to Cape Town. Food was good and more than enough to eat. I was impressed by the scheduled meals and drink offers , very important for a dietetic"
Cons: "No leg room, can't stretch your legs properly so my bad knee was in pain"
Cons: "I did not like the fact that on now 3 flights I have lost miles, as on every flight I have tried to sign on as a member or frequent flyer and on all flights, there were no entry forms. This is also after my attempt to complete one on line, which I have had no response to."
Pros: "The flight went fairly smooth, the staff were courteous and the food was as good as can be expected of airline food. There were several courses and options, which is always appreciated."
Cons: "Long flight on a 777-200. Crowded aircraft, crew not very attentive to call light, and food mediocre at best. Entertainment service was horrible, old movies and typical Qatar Airline selection of Bollywood films (Expected when flying from Doha, but not New Zealand!) Seat would not recline, but no option to move to another isle seat."
Pros: "Generally good experience at least as far as a very long flight with two children can go. Good food with plenty and quite healthy snacks for kids. Very friendly and attentive crew, comparably comfortable seats, clean and comfortable bathrooms (what not always has been my experience with other airlines)"
Cons: "Due to a misunderstanding at check-in we have been seated away from a baby bassinette (although booked) to sit together with my husband, nobody asked what my preference would be (sitting as a whole family or having a bassinette) and a 17-hour flight with a 9month old baby constantly on my lap was challenging. Also a very disappointing selection of films and documentaries for adults. I ended watching a kids movie with my older daughter and it was the only thing I found appealing. Kids section very good though, my 5-year old was glued to the screen and all the options had my approval :)"
Pros: "Crew are great and entertainment options are good."
Cons: "The seats are quite uncomfortable and small. Really struggled to get comfortable."
Pros: "Helpful staffs and great stewardess!"
Cons: "Too many babies this time! Scary bathroom 2 hours before landing. Food portion can be improved. Entertainment screen and choices can be more considerate!"
Pros: "Aircraft was much better than the flight from US, food was great. The only thing I wished for was more movies."
Cons: "Lack of movies"
Pros: "The flight was not full so there was room to stretch. And the crew was more friendly because they were not overwelmed."
Pros: "It was a good flight. I'd give it 4 of 5 stars."
Pros: "I can understand what kind of flight it was because it was a small plane"
Cons: "Bad smells and an old plane i hope you will change the plane to another better one"
Pros: "High quality gluten free meals (best I've had on Qatar Airways)."
Cons: "Seating needs to be more spacious."
Pros: "Service always attentive , availability of food on demand outside scheduled meals ."
Cons: "Film selection outdated , I flew in April and the WORLD movies had not changed much Aircraft not as good as more recent ones"
Pros: "Plane wasn't full, which was nice."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. Starting the pre-boarding process into an area without a restroom was horrible. Not allowing us to bring a water bottle on a 14-hour flight was cruel. Movie selection could be better. Additionally, it seems like the Qatar airport is becoming more like a US airport. Agents were barking orders and the pre-boarding process was slow. It was not a good start to the flight."
Cons: "You do a sorry job of keeping couples in seated side by side my wife of 3 days wasn't even in the same row and there were at least three other couples that were done the same way y'all need to pay closer attention to the people that are buying your tickets"
Pros: "The plane was neat, clean and the services was world class. I was made to feel at home with service always at my finger tips."
Cons: "Nothing to report."
Cons: "Missed the connecting flight due to some delay. Had to sleep over for a night. A lot of discomfort. New flight time was very later the next day. Messed up all my bookings and schedule."
Pros: "Staff was friendly and I was comfortable"
Cons: "Toilet was a bit messy. Menu can be improved"

Everything was just perfect, extremely polite staff, excellent service, food was great and best of all flights and connections were on time.

Good: The bag with slippers, toothpaste etc. Bad: The cabin crew didn’t want to bring a refill for a cup of tea. They wanted me to walk back to the end of the plane despite the seat bags on sign. Good: A full water bottle and full size blanket.

My bags never arrived to Beirut.

Awesome thanks to the crew

Pros: "Great aircrafts, big screens, attentive personnel"
Cons: "Difficult trip and costly delays both ways. Going to Cairo from Istanbul we were delayed 5 hrs so we arrived at 1AM instead of 8:30PM the night before."
Cons: "Cabin temperature was too warm"
Cons: "No one came with drink carts until halfway through the flight. I was very hungry, never offered food. Boarding was late but no communication from staff."

Pros: "Comfortable seats and friendly crew"
Cons: "Food could be better esp snacks"
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "After bus arrived at steps kept on it 20 mins. 2 more buses arrived in this time. Still wait. Then let out all at once. Massive queues to board. Poeple not dressed for this. Poor babies crying Maybe 15 mins waiting in 2am cold on tarmac."
Pros: "Comfortable but narrow seats."
Cons: "Entertainment system could do with more selection."
Cons: "There simply is not enough room for such a long flight. I havent Flown in a while and was surprised at how tight the seats were since i last flew - both flying from the US to Istanbul and vice versa. However, for the shorter two hour connecting flights, from Istanbul to Tel Aviv, the seats seemed to have more room. This does not make sense."
Pros: "I liked the overall plane journey."
Cons: "Flight was delayed which caused us to miss our connection flight."
Pros: "Entertainment was OK boarding was a good comfortable sitting."
Cons: "I did not have an option to order kosher meal when I did my online check-in so I called customer service and the lady on the line barely spoke English and even though I warder kosher meal and verified it with her when I go to the plane the crew told me they don't have a kosher meal for me. The crew was unwilling to help me find something else to eat and they were very rude. I am very disappointed of their customer service standards. I will not use Turkish Airlines again."
Pros: "Travel on THY within Turkey and between countries. Service excellent, food is great, amenities abound. Always travel THY when I can."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike! My favorite airline."
Cons: "I liked everything besides not getting a wheelchair."
Cons: "there was no in-time update on information about flight gate. it changed 3 times. result is i missed my flight and next flight was offered at US$1200 for IST-KWI sector where total fare from Toronto - Kuwait was US$ 1000 staff at Transfer desk was not co-operative and Sales office was almost empty. only 2 person there to attend many stranded passengers. staff was very slow to work and no criteria to handle those need help on urgent basis. most of the staff do not speak English and very UNFRIENDLY"
Cons: "Headphones did not work for first half of flight. flight attendant was unconcerned. Very little legroom"
Cons: "Food was dried out and tasteless"
Pros: "Staff was extremely helpful and responsive. I like that plane is clean, and many plus, very good entertainment. I love that it is non-stop from SFO to Istanbul. Food was superb!"
Cons: "As usual check in and boarding is horrible with Turkish Airlines. I have used Lufthansa, British Airways, Air France, et had not trouble with them. Why is it so hard to improve this in Turkish Airlines. No charger for computer even during 13 hours flight?"
Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "The planes I flew in were very clean, comfortable and in great condition. I enjoy the seat space and comfort, good entertainment options with great quality entertainment system. The meals were also decent and we were even fed sandwiches on a short flight."
Pros: "Outstanding service Excellent food Adequate entertainment Seat recline was good for economy"
Cons: "For a long flight (8+ hours) legroom on this Airbus was quite cramped Again poor boarding announcements resulted in very chaotic boarding process"
Pros: "I used the prime lounge in Istanbul and when it was time to go, I was able to practically walk on the plane without any wait. The seats were comfy and didn't have a ton of legroom but it wasn't bad. The staff we're friendly and helpful. The in-flight entertainment had a pretty impressive selection and had one of the best-designed interfaces I've seen so far (and I've ridden a variety of airlines). Last and most important, the food was hands down the BEST I've had on a plane. Turkish is killing it, they're my new go-to airline!"
Cons: "I really can't complain about anything, even if I try! Maybe the touch screen sensitivity on the entertainment console seemed a little off, but that's just nitpicking"
Cons: "It is impossible to make a one hour connecting flight in Istanbul when you take off 30 minutes late, arrive at a distant site (~ 5 km away from the arrival terminal) and the there is only one security guard to screen hundreds arriving. Missed our flight by 90 minutes, the customer service people were rude at the airport and we had a 7 hour delay. What are you thinking???"
Pros: "Over all the flight was okay, the food good, boarding was nice, and entertainment was good as well."
Cons: "This flight was for my mother, who is an old woman. On her way back from Belgium to Chicago, she has a layout more than 14 hrs. In this case the Turkish airlines were responsible to offer her a stay in a hotel, however this time they did not offer her any."
Cons: "Pathetic vegetarian food. Same pasta was served twice."
Pros: "Service, food, travel exoerience"
Cons: "Wait time in Istanbul"
Pros: "The entire inflight experience was great from start to finish."
Cons: "I approached the Transfer Desk when there was no line and asked the person working if it was possible to switch to an exit row seat because of my height. The man helping me lied to my face and told me that he could not make the change because the flight was full. when I got on the plane, there were over two dozen empty seats. It was very clear that he just did not want to invest the few seconds it would take to address my concern, or give me a credible reason why he could not make the change."
Pros: "Good food. Great service."
Cons: "Small leg room. Display of entertainment system was poor quality."
Pros: "Staff,food excellent. Very smooth take off and landing. Excellent pilots. As a Turkish citizen I'm proud of THY.,"
Cons: "Narrow seating area."
Cons: "Flight attendant didn't instruct the passenger infront of me that during having food he have to upright his seat"
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "Great service; lots of food,drinks, and gave us a travel kit (this included,toothbrush,toothpaste,earplugs,eyemask&slippers) as well as headphones,blanket and a pillow."
Cons: "gerat flight,no complaints."
Pros: "The meal was good and fulfilling The cabin crew dressed like a chef is a nice and fun thing."
Cons: "Slow boarding to the plane, passengers don't respect the different boarding class rule and the staff was not enforcing it. Passengers were standing in the plane after it landed but while it was still driving on the runway and they were opening the overhead luggage compartments risking other passengers health with falling luggage. Also since passengers were standing and the plane was driving on the runway, they were not stable and moving sideways and one of them hit a sitting passenger in the head by mistake. The on-flight entertainment system didn't work from FRA to IST The staff did not do a safety check (check if seat belts on all passengers, seats are in upright position) prior to the plane flying Overall I flew with them 4 times (2 way ticket, with connection flights) and all flights were late to depart and eventually arrive late."
Cons: "Leg space a nighrmare!! Was uncomfortable for all the 13 hrs of the flight. Terrible experience"
Pros: "It was a 12 or 13 hour flight and except for sitting too much we were never uncomfortable. The service level made me think we were back in the 80's. Hot towels, attentive service, tons of food and free drinks. There was actually one meal that we would have eaten even if it wasn't on a plane. They gave out full size blankets and pretty fluffy pillows. (I bring our own anymore, because you never know if you will get one on most airlines, and if you do they're usually useless). Their entertainment system was amazing. We caught up on all the recently released movies that we've wanted to see for FREE! If only Netflix had this quality of movie offerings. They had fresh flowers in the huge bathrooms. It's that type of attention to detail you just really don't see anymore."
Cons: "Can't think of a thing that could actually be changed."
Pros: "Service when it was done"
Cons: "Infrequent service Crowded Entertainment system bad"
Pros: "Able to rest & crew very pleasant"
Cons: "Thought we might miss our next connection as it was tight, but we made it."

Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "All very nice"
Cons: "Boarding was unorganized."
Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Seat comfort"

Pros: "Trip was comfy and swift .. crew are friendly and flight is nice and clean"

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."

Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "I end up upgrading my seats from economy to business class and made a very decision given the length of flight. Service was excellent and food was alright. The best thing were the seats as my whole family got to sleep 5 - 6 hours."
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."
Cons: "Crew wasn't cooperating as I had a connection flight in only 50 minutes and am with three children,I asked for their help but they said there is nothing they can do ,I have to do just as everyone else in the flight"

Pros: "Crew was friendly. Food somewhat better than prior leg but far from business class standard."

Pros: "The ravioli was great, some of the other food was not great. Otherwise, the flight was easy."
Cons: "More entertainment options, the movies and TV shows offered are not varied or very good."
Cons: "see above"
Cons: "Addis Airport is a NIGHTMARE!!! It took two hours to check in and the lines were insane. It was absolute chaos, people pushing and airport staff did little to manage it. We almost missed our flight because the lines and process was so disorganized. The plane ride - the plane was old. My seat was so old, the cushion was worn down to the point of feeling like a bucket seat. This was really bad..."
Pros: "Again excellent service"
Pros: "Ground stuff was trying tobe very helpful but it ended with trying. Also they did not inform us about he change of stoping in Cairo"
Cons: "Old airport that is uncomfortable with bad lounges that are not even worth going into."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Always delaying, catastrophic food."
Pros: "No comment"
Cons: "No comment"
Cons: "Plane didn’t hold, even though I would have made it if they waited 10 minutes, and surely they knew I was coming from a delayed flight caused by Ethiopian and left anyways. Now have to take 3 extra flights and will miss a train at my final destination."
Cons: "Flight was delayed again. No priority boarding for Star Alliance members. Staff was unfriendly."

Pros: "The quality of the planes"
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "The whole thing was a disaster. I lost my connection flight due to incompetence from the Ethiopian airlines representative"
Pros: "It is an African airline so I am doing my best to support it. I am grateful I was allocated to a hotel for my long layover"

Cons: "Transfer at Addis Ababa was horrendous - no help from ground staff and the airport was a confusing mess. The landing in cape town was very rough and jumpy."
Pros: "Brand New Aircraft"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Everything Kosher food was excellent"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "On board entertainment was not up to date. Old movies. Little choice."
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: "POLITE AND GENTLE CREWS. SERVICE WITH A SMILE. AIR FARE REASONABLE COMPARED TO OTHER AIRLINES"
Cons: "IF FARE IS CHEAP THAN THAT DOES NOT MEAN THE SERVICES SHOULD BE POOR"
Cons: "We were delayed for 30 minutes, then for one hour, then they announced a delay for 3 hours. They changed the gate twice and the staff was not communicating what is happening and when we are supposed to board. Also, they did not add my miles for my connecting flight."
Cons: "Ground staff past security at Intl departures were unhelpful and scarce. The gate number on the boarding pass and screen did not coincide. Unlike other airports the screen was not the most recent information. Even when told about the discrpancy and mix up for many passengers, the mistake on the computer was not rectified"
Cons: "At Addis airport, they announced first that the trip got cancelled and postponed for another 7 hours. Then while lining up to change my ticket, I overheard people saying that the boarding is starting in 30 minutes and we have to rush to the gate. Then the gate number changed 3 times and the boarding time got delayed few times as well. It was a 5 stars chaos that trip!"
Pros: "The flight left on time and arrived 20 minutes faster than scheduled. I usually order Kosher meal and enjoyed the food. Unfortunately the Kosher meal they started to serve recently is the WORST food I have had on board. Please avoid the KOSHER!"
Pros: "I did find the staff very friendly."
Cons: "I found the staff to be very slow, on all 4 flights it tool them an extensive amount of time to walk down with drinks and food service. I was also sitting under the overhead that had blankets and they kept waking me up through out the flight when trying to get a blanket. I wanted to perches a watch that no all the flights had and when they did I couldn't ad ou don't take Credit Card. Flying from Israel to South Africa all I had was Shekel and Rands. How was I to know that I needed to carry Dollars On me."
Pros: "Comfortable. Crew excellent. On time. Efficient on boarding and landing - good information throughout"
Cons: "Addis Ababa airport very crowded with no seat available for five hour stopover. Food outlets limited"
Cons: "I was suppose to stay on the flight in Hong Kong to continue to Ethiopia and they never made an announcement. I had a seat with a TV that did not work and it took over 30 mins for a flight attendant to respond."
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Food seemed of poor quality."
Cons: "Hi, I have asked 3 members of the crew to get me a glass of water from the time I boarded the flight. It took 45 minutes for them to hand me a glass of water. I have to wait till they all got settled. Only when them to start the service they were able to give me some water. I was really thirsty otherwise, I wouldn't have to ask for three members. I think it's important that they respond more promptly and do a quick service considering the long flight we have."
Pros: "I did like the overall services. I was comfortable with the crew and was entertained. I enjoyed the night over in the fhoice of loudging with nazra Hotel."
Cons: "I didn't like the quality of food in the hotel panaroma on my return. The hotel needed air refreshner as it wae stuffy and difficult to breath in. The reception was excellent but poor service."
Pros: "The friendliness of the crew and their spirit of hospitality make this company stand our from others. Also the new aircrafts and the amenities on board are a big plus."
Pros: "There was nothing specific on the positive side. Only the cost of the ticket was okay."

Pros: "The crew was very nice, beer on the flight is always a nice touch , plenty of food and beverages. Nice collection of movies and music. Food is OK. We had a 10 Hour connection at Addis Ababba, and we were provided with a city tour at the first time, and hotel at the second. I liked the Injira :)"
Cons: "Overall, it's kinda depressing to fly with Ethiopian, the whole experience, from the colors of the uniforms, to the big African people, there was not enough room to seat next to other person, we and some people we met on the flight experienced the same thing. Addis Ababba was very not welcoming, we had a small tour at the city, the people are aggressive, we heard a lot of "farengie" all the time - "foreigners", everything was very expensive, because tourist have a lot of money... they are not afraid to touch you, even at the face. if somebody offers you guiding, they will ask for money later on and will take you to expensive places."
Cons: "Addis Airport is terribly organized and far too small for the volume of people they're pushing through it (which is probably the lead cause of the poor organization)."
Cons: "Very very old aeroplane"

Cons: "FOOD"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Didn’t like anything"
