I request for vegetarian food but they are asking me what kind of food you want. Service is slow.

Pros: "The seating was cramped for a 14 hours flight but the staff was excellent."
Cons: "Food options not always what I was expecting."
Pros: "My flight attendant, Grace, was delightful. There were several challenging passengers around me and I observed her handle them with the grace of someone who embodied their name—Grace."
Cons: "No wifi on board. The plane was one of the older ones, but still perfectly nice."
Pros: "Crew was receptive"
Cons: "Food boarding"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival. Hard working crew members."
Cons: "No slippers for long flights."
Cons: "Every thing is good"
Cons: "maybe they can offer more snacks on the plain"
Cons: "Lots of noisy babies / young children"
Pros: "The entertainment was good."
Cons: "The food, while it tasted good, made me a little sick because it’s pretty unhealthy. I am vegan and would have like lower calorie option meals. I tried to find an option on the app to order special meals, but couldn’t. It would be good if Qatar made it easy to order special meals on their app."
Pros: "Yes"
Pros: "Qsuite is the best flight experience I've ever had by a long, long way."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly throughout the 7-hour flight."
Pros: "Service and entertainment."
Cons: "Food."
Pros: "Modern plane and great crew."
Cons: "I get the safety thing with the window blinds but wish if it was 40 degrees outside they would let you close them until the plane takes off"
Pros: "I got free internet on this flight: sponsored by Ooredoo. You can get 8MB for free! Breakfast was good quantity"
Cons: "Entertainment Oryx One, lunch quantity aswell. FPML had one tray, VJML and AVML had the same packed wrap."
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: "Stellar crew -- super friendly, served water/juices constantly, polite, attentive. To be commended Great choice of movies and entertainment but no wifi???"
Cons: "This was an older 777 -- no wifi -- pretty surprising on such a key flight at DOH-JFK! This is not the airline's fault but I had a crazy lady next to me who was very disoriented, who could not speak English and needed assistance. No one would deal with her! She had a little pouch with her name on it -- like a UM -- so someone knew something was not right when they put her on the flight. I bought drinks inside the terminal for this 14 hour flight but they were all confiscated at the additional security at the gate!! WTF"
Pros: "very courteous flight crew"
Cons: "baggage took along time to come business class luggage came after economy"
Cons: "One restroom was out of service"
Pros: "the attention in general for me was excellent."
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: "Entertainment"
Cons: "They re issued my boarding pass Doha, for Dallas flight and gave us the last seat on the plane, even though I chosed the seat at the time of booking. Food was ok, but when we asked for the chicken they didn’t had it. It’s an international flight of 15 hours with food shortage???"
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."
Cons: "Did not know what Vegetarian Jain meal should taste like! Even goats and sheep woud not have liked the taste of this special meal. Fortunately, cabin crew member was kind enough to give me a regular Hindu veggie meal rather than my pre-selected Vegetarian Jain meal (VJML) - DO NOT CHOOSE VJML on Qatar, unless you wanna faint from the horrible food! The tray was dirty! Co-passengers in the row behind me were also complaining The audio lead of my headphone would not go into the outlet in the seat armrest! So I had to use audio from neighboring (empty) seat and sync it with video from screen for my seat. What a pain!"

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."
Pros: "Crew are great and entertainment options are good."

Pros: "It was a good flight. I'd give it 4 of 5 stars."
Pros: "The crew were so nice. But flights are very long, and coach is incredibly crowded & uncomfortable. Beverage service is frequent and generous with a good variety of fruit juices, soft drinks, red or white wine, etc."
Cons: "Using the video screen is a mystery tour - badly programmed. The Doha airport is an architect's Ego Trip and badly laid out, extremely long walks to get anywhere, ferocious prices for anything (carry snacks for your layover!). The smoking lounge doesn't even have a proper exhaust system so smoke permeates the terminal in the vicinity. Plus 4 bar stools hogged by rude, arrogant young Arab men who have NO respect or consideration for elders, disabled, etc. Incident with boarding passenger in Saigon was VERY badly handled & delayed departure over an hour, risking connections for a number of passengers. They cannot handle things well, yet crew is basically nice, kind. Food is AWFUL; saving grace is fresh fruit, roll & butter, yoghurt - the nice little side dishes."
Pros: "Vegetarian food options"
Pros: "Among airlines, theirs is one of the best. The have good leg room in economy, good food, good entertainment, and an excellent cabin staff."
Pros: "I like the new 350 plane. Comfortable seats, good entertainment and connections. I especially like that you can display cameras from outside the plane on your seat's screen."

Pros: "Newer aircraft, good crew"
Cons: "Food was average. Poor movie selection"

Pros: "The food and the entertainment was excellent!"
Cons: "There was no boarding announcement. I was given a boarding zone for no reason; boarding was a free for all. Our flight was delayed by almost an hour. We sat on the plane, by the gate, while the crew called the Istanbul Flight Control to figure out when our plane could arrive. This flight had been scheduled for weeks; I would think they could plan the arrival time to be the ACTUAL arrival time."
Pros: "Excellent food"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic"
Cons: "Nothing"
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: "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: "lowered the food standards compared to previous flights flight was late"

Cons: "Long boarding time from Amsterdam to Istanbul. No explanation of delay and THY wants you to wait miserably on gate.

Pros: "Great service overall"
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."

Pros: "great food, great wine, great service"
Cons: "Most of the movies are missing english subtitles. That makes them almost impossible to watch for whom English is not their native language"
Pros: "Nora from San Francisco Airport"
Cons: "Everything. Mean skinny guy from San Francisco TK counter, unprofessional handling of cancellation, accomodation to a hotel and Re-booking. We had no hotel, no food provided, no confirmed seats. I will never fly Turkish Airlines again."

Dreamliner was comfortable and entertainment system good

Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The flight AMS to MEX was smooth, very helpful personnel on board, we enjoyed a bit more space and the seat seemed a bit more comfortable."
Cons: "Besides the seat relative comfort, it did not recline much at all, i wondered what the extra money (at least $5 or $600) got us. The food, wine/ beer service was same as regular economy, the boarding took place at same time as economy, no drink before take-off if only sparkling water. And the plane was old generation 747 and the entertainment was same vintage: screen was not very bright and the selection of films was poor. No plug to charge electronics. We were disappointed with KLM when comparing with other airline companies offerings when you book in Premium Economy."
Pros: "Very friendly onboard personnel - I really had kind of homy feeling."
Pros: "Overall booking and airport was ok. Food was also actually quite good."
Cons: "A comfort of the seats... well its economy class in the end. Entertainment was just dreadful - small screen with visible pixels - I was unable to watch any movie."

Pros: "Good flight, very attentive crew."
Cons: "You are almost always late!"
Pros: "Food and staff behaviour"

Cons: "Poor timing - no reason for a 40 minute delay at take off (plane was fully boarded in time) Old aircraft, shabby, dirty and cramped seats. Coming from my connecting flight from Barcelona, I could clearly tell the different in the quality (and cleanliness) of the aircrafts."
Pros: "Norhing"
Cons: "They have mabaged to lost my luggage"
Pros: "Smooth boarding, clean seats/plane, nice small aircraft (2 rows x 2 seats each), surprisingly spacious (more legroom than expected - and I’m 6’2”)."
Cons: "About 1h30min delay without an explanation. All other planes in the terminal seemed to take off on time without a problem, without exception (aside from this flight, of course)."
Pros: "Sandwich was incredibly tasty (although not much filling)"
Cons: "2 hours on the tarmac delayed with no explanation. Uncomfortable seats, no leg room. Poor management of seating, there was enough empty seats to have groups together but they were split up. Drinks served from a communal bottle in a polystyrene cup."

Pros: "Absolutely nothing!"
Cons: "the connection flights was the worse! The gate was changed in Amsterdam 3 times! From D82 to C6 and then to C11. The distance between B82 and C was 20-30 minutes walk. No rushing was needed though, the flight was delayed for 1:30h and after we all boarded a further delay was announced. I will never fly with KLM."
Pros: "Consistently high standards"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful personnel."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Excellent experience with the cabin crew."
Cons: "Seats on the 777 were too narrow. This 777 had a 3-4-3 seating arraignment, it would have been better with a 3-3-3, similar to a 787 configuration. With the current layout, even with an aisle seat, I was sitting in the aisle. And I am not a large person! The flight was full, so use the 787 and two daily non-stops. For a twelve hour flight, the food was only Okay, could have been better and with a better selection. Meal timing was poor."
Cons: "It was announced I can choose between fish and chicken meal but when I requested for fish meal, I was told it’s finished. My seat was 21, and it surprised me. If something can be changed about that then your services would be much appreciated. Thank you."

Pros: "Very little if any."
Cons: "Aircraft was not very clean,the staff seamed quite harsh at times when speaking to customers. The food was really quite poor but it was a short flight to be honest. Overall not as pleasant as the China Southern flights. I would not like to choose them again unless i had to."
Cons: "suitcase didn't turn up, although connection was quite tight"
Cons: "The leg room on the long flight was less than I would have wished and it was particularly bad when the person in front put their seat back. this was a day time flight and it would have been good to have a bit more room to use a laptop."
Pros: "The crew were pleasant"
Pros: "Timing & efficiency. Good food though only a sandwich."
Cons: "Nothing. Could say there was no entertainment but I didn't want entertainment on such a short flight"
Cons: "Flight delayed by one hour which meant I missed by train at Southampton by 10 minutes and subsequent bus connect home. Next bus would have been 2 hours later so 45 minute walk home from train station. Didn't bother with food offering, put off by that supplied from Hannover to Schiphol."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "No negative"
Pros: "Staff at Schipol airport were lovely and very helpful. Cabin crew were friendly and efficient. On board snack was nice."
Cons: "Elbow room is a little bit awkward and I didn't get to sit next to my fiance WE will still definitely recommend KLM though!"
Pros: "The crew were lovely and welcoming. We was given snacks and drinks on the flight which was great. Take off was a bit delayed but boarding was smooth. Couldn't complain about the comfort as was only just over an hours flight."

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Only one queue for boarding. Flight late on arrival."
Pros: "The flight was delayed by 40 minutes initially then a further 20 making it an hour late. Sitting at the gate there was then suddenly a last call to board the flight and a mad rush for everyone to get on. I appreciate that delays happen but the lack of communication ragardinh altered boarding times didn't make the situation any easier"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "Staff superb. They even surprised us with an exit row and a gift for my partners birthday! Amazing. Samantha and Dennis also took time to come and personally wish him a happy birthday. A lovely touch. This airline runs like clockwork. They are just great. The sandwich and stoop waffle are nice too."
Cons: "There is a bus to the plane, so that takes a bit of extra time but they are very well organized."
Pros: "Flight was efficient enough and staff were friendly."
Cons: "It was delayed quite a bit and more on-time updates would have been appeciated."
Pros: "staff hospitality, cleanness of the cabin and toilet and punctuality of the flight"
Cons: "lack of meal options"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and accomodating, plane was clean and boarding amd disembarking was efficiently handled."
Cons: "55 minute delay was not welcome."
Pros: "Upgrade was easy! Crew was beyond exceptionable! Can’t wait to fly again, guys!"
Pros: "Na"
Cons: "They have a terrible communication problem, they never communicated why the flight was late, they never communicated what they were doing or what was happening. Bad customer service. Bad communication with the client. They told us when I asked several times that we would not lose our connection and that everything was fine and that was not the case. We lost the connection. No one told us anything. Another problem was that the girl in the boarding process removed the suitcases tickets from the boarding pass and did not want to return them, and held it without any cause. The flight staff went looking for us. Pretty sad and disappointed by their service. I understand that they were causes outside the airline but must communicate to the client. They cannot remain silent and say nothing."
Pros: "I've never been on a flight with such narrow seat and thin cushion. There was no entertainment offered for the almost 4 hour flight. There was no means of charging any electronic gears. The airplane seems to be 30 years behind time. Crew was unfriendly and smiling faces are not part of the uniform."
Cons: "Very narrow seats and thim cushion. No entertainment offered an do means of recharging electronic devices."
Pros: "Spacious business class seats, excellent meals"
Cons: "Lack of ventilation in cabin, and staff refusal to turn heaters down (in September), very limited entertainment options."
Pros: "The cabin crew were amazing and the seats very comfortable, even in economy. I'm not a super comfortable flyer so I loved that the pilot would always warn when we were getting into turbulence. 2 thumbs up. I will fly Air France again"
Cons: "I'd appreciate a better selection of food and drinks, even if I have to pay for the drinks."
Cons: "Kayak updated me that my flight would be late. It wasn't. Missed it had to pay $700"
Pros: "Not much, seats are super uncomfortable"
Cons: "Better code sharing with KLM"
Pros: "Amazing crew and on time flight"
Cons: "None"

Cons: "Provide another blanket when needed, was wearing shorts and a short sleeve shirt."
Cons: "We had a short delay"
Pros: "The crew was nice and the seat comfortable."
Cons: "Never got the pre-ordered wheelchair in Paris and only after long negotiations at JFK. Also, Delta lost my checked bag between JFK and DCA."
Pros: "The flight departed on time and arrived early. The crew were all courteous and kind even to the man who was sitting next to me who seemed quite demanding."
Cons: "I am small but the seats seemed a bit too tight. The plane itself seemed a bit outdated."
Pros: "The cue lines per zone are the most brilliant idea!"
Cons: "After boarding began there was a backup after the gate en route to the plane. No explanation. The plane left an hour later than scheduled but seemed to arrive close to scheduled time."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant and boarding efficient I lucked out with first class"
Pros: "Crew was awesome!!"
Cons: "I paid extra for the seat, but there was a metal box under the seat in front of me that curtailed my ability to stow my carry bag, and my leg room. I am very diappointed that I paid above the normal seat charge as if there was a premium to this seat, but in reality it was a sb par seat."
Cons: "Poor service. Terrible food. Aging aircraft. Terrible in-flight entertainment system. Really not good AirFrance."
Pros: "Good food and crew"
Cons: "Plane was old and seats were super tiny. Even an average guy would be uncomfortable in it. Can’t sit in one spot for longer than 15 min without getting sore."
Pros: "The crew was very gentile."
Cons: "No enterteinment on the plane."
Cons: "Not much legroom."
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "The usual Air France flights to Rome, that I have been flying for years, are now operated by Joon. For a couple months nothing changed, except the way the crew dressed. But now Joon is showing its true nature as a LOW COST airline.Seats cramped. Snacks and apple juice are now available for purchase only."
Pros: "Very nice stews. Food was A plus compared to US airlines AND included. Great list of movies etc."
Cons: "Entertainment screen did not work; in neighboring seat it could not be switched off when we wanted to sleep; sourly employees everywhere (re-booking counter an exception); food close not being edible and cold; I forgot my watch on when going through security in the Air France terminal; when I started to say "sorry" I was yelled at by the screener who said that she will do the talking; she sent me back through the scanner twice without my watch, then once more with the carry-on and made sure that I went to the end of a very long line to wait for another screening rather than having me just go through the scanner without my watch. Needless to say, there was nothing else suspicious about me once the watch was removed. Eager to exercise her power, the security person did not seem to consider that she slowed down a long line of people waiting to be screened. I should add that I am 73 yrs old grey haired female who has traveled a lot both for pleasure and business during my entire life, often to some difficult places and that I do not argue with or provoke those in power in a situation like this. The yelling and the sending me repeatedly through the scanner, which did not beep once the watch was removed, was beyond anything I had experienced anywhere else. The sending me to the very end of the line seemed outright spiteful. (I did miss the plane connection.)"
Pros: ". Budget airline with no legroom or extras"
Cons: "See above. Nothing specific to like."
Cons: "The food was the worst airline food I have ever been served. I could not eat it. This is very disappointing for an airline like AirFrance which usually serves very good meals."
Pros: "Very good male crew member. Pilot genuinely apologetic for the delay."
Cons: "After running due to a 1 hr 10 min change over between flights boarding didn't prioritise anyone but I got on fine. Only to be told at the departure time that there was a problem with the baggage hold and we were delayed. In total 50 minutes late leaving. Breakfast a simple brioche with nothing to add to it."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Plane left 45 minutes late. No reason given either when waiting or after late boarding. I didn't eat as I tried to sleep byt narrow seats meant being woken constantly by fidgety neighbour. Fortunately the plane made up most of the lost time and I got my next Air France flight. This one was 50 minutes late departing."
Pros: "Food was Fantastic, Air France the Best on Air."
Cons: "CDG is a monster. The distances are long . The signage is poor and when I asked for directions the diirections I got were wrong."
Cons: "Plane was canceled at the last minute with a transfer desk literally assaulted by 100s of people. Only 3 persons on the desk. No lane for sky priority. Queued for nearly two hours before some airport employee gave us instructions to travel by train without any other information or tickets etc. Had to buy my ticket. Couldn’t recuperate my suitcase. Had to wait for it the next day for three hours. Up to this hour I don’t know how I am going to be reimbursed (train and plane)."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "They loosed our reserved seats, our luggage, food was awful, ground staff was disrespectful."
Pros: "The space and the people"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Very poor sound quality on the earphones. Made it very difficult to watch a movie and almost impossible to listen to music."
Cons: "Initially the flight from Lima was delayed for almost 1:30 and then we lost this connection then Airfrance rebooking to SAS they tell us to take all our luggage’s and check in again it’s was awful and really bad from then walk and spend time we suppose to be quite at home ... the worst was in SAS have ano system and for 1.5 kilos extras you might pay 33€ so after long day and wait, running everywhere with all my staff I see to eat a 11€ menu at the airport with not more explanation from Airfrance .. really bad and worst services.."
Pros: "Good cabin, but very conjugated :|"
Cons: "Too much of hassle checking in as the airlines partners with a couple of other airlines like Jet Airways, WestJet & Aircanada. The food was just okay and the cabin crew refused to serve extra butter. When you are serving extra bread, make sure you serve the butter as well. How could someone eat bread by itself?"
Pros: "Crew was nice and responsive"
Cons: "The overall experience is regular at best"
Pros: "Got pillow, blanket, headphone and eye cover"
Cons: "Older plane Very small tv screen Didn't get the bread roll with my dinner. Asked for it but she didn't bring it to me. No usb plug to charge"
Pros: "It was on time and the crew was good"
Cons: "The food wasnt upto the mark"
Pros: "Flight was only 50% full. Room to spread out."
Cons: "Leg room cramp. Flight arrived late as a result missed connection home."
Pros: "1) USB charger and electric outlet 2) Availability of 2-across economy seats (for a price) 3) Vegetarian dinner option available and not too bad 4) Flight arrived on-time"
Cons: "1) No on-board wifi 2) Not much seating room - very thin 3) 45 minutes late taking off"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "It was one problem after another during check in. And it was difficult to find help in English so I couldn't really tell what was going on. In the end I was tucking to get checked in because they were insisting I use a kiosk but I was telling them that the kiosk said to see an attendee. It was not efficient and I felt like a burden asking for help when there was nothing else I could do on my own."
Cons: "Too crowded"
Pros: "A short flight but attendants served us a snack and water with a smile."
Cons: "No business class"
Cons: "It was all good, only in comparison with Turkish airlines and etihad it is not at par."
Pros: "I didn't feel cramped in a Window Seat. Two meals were served during the flight. It was nice to get back to being fed something other than skippy snacks on an airline flight."
Cons: "I was ignored over and over again as ice cream, drinks and snacks were offer by the crew. It would have been nice if some would ask me before falling asleep if I wanted to be roused for snacks and desserts. After being on back to back flights of more than 10 hours each it would be considerate for the crew to be aware of my length of travel and to make sure they don't assume my resting my eyes is the same as me being asleep. Even when I was awake it appeared I was being overlooked, ignored and left out of complimentary services I saw other receiving....my bad for not asking to be noticed."
Pros: "The crew was very comfortable speaking two languages and friendly. They also had air conditioning! This was great because it was strangely hot in Paris and we were sweating profusely. And our last air france experience we were so hot and it was aweful. Even though it was like an hour and a half flight they still served us sandwiches ,really good."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Not enough room for legs. Small amounts of food. No entertainment."
Pros: "The food, the facilities, the seat, everything."
Pros: "Entertainment center is brand new and Cleanliness Crew was ok And yeah there's wine (that way you can get plastered and ignore the uncomfortable seats)"
Cons: "Checking in was ridiculous. They're charging for literally EVERYTHING now. On economy class you have many options: - Normal (free!) "ergonomic" seats: uncomfortable, narrow, really close to the one in front of you. - Normal (exit row): just give up. There's like 6 of these and they're taken immediately. - Normal (middle of the plane): are you kidding me? These are NORMAL seats and you charge an extra €30? - Normal (2 seats per row!): what a bargain. Same crappy seats, but two people instead of three! This is really worth my money. - Upgrade to business! Why are you so poor! AF food went from being the best in international flights to disgusting microwave food (especially vegetarian)."
Pros: "Boarding efficient, Air France flight to Paris was brief and pleasant."
Cons: "Seat a bit uncomfortable"
Cons: "To many announcements on a overnight flight."

The crew was so so rude Except one person his name is khaled

Staff were very nice and professional. 🙏. International/domestic recheck was very confusing

Friendly check in and smooth all the way

Thank you so much ☺️

Cons: "Neither departure terminal nor gate was displaying in the application even while refreshing it continuously. The information was available in schiphol airport website 3.5 hours before take-off time."
Pros: "Everything was great. Staff of ground services for last security hand bags and passengers checks, documents final checks and all were with great flow, smiles and so professional. Hospitality from cabin crew, cleanliness, food portions and taste were great. Comfortable seats and elite shading side windows. Everything was sooo great. This really escalades recommendations for EgyptAir"
Cons: "The heavy touch down upon landing, could have been a little bit smoother. That was not a big deal at all."
Cons: "Not losing my luggage"
Cons: "The plane was old and so small, it wasn’t comfortable at all"
Pros: "All were as per timing . Professional attitudes."
Cons: "A long flight but no LCD screen for entertainment."
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "Business class is very basic. Flatbed seats, but they are side by side, like economy. So if you have a window or center seat, you have to climb over someone to get out to use the bathroom. Very annoying, especially for the person being climbed over."
Cons: "Really I have taken this flight several times and they are always perfect"
Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "Not much- the flight , plane and crew were fantastic"
Pros: "The seat, the space, the crew and the window"
Cons: "For the food, not all of the people eating eggs.. some of them vomit because of it."
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Plane in good condition"
Cons: "Seats are tight"
Cons: "The plane was really old, no personal entertainment system for a 5 and a half hour flight is unacceptable. Seats very uncomfortable"
Cons: "Transit to jeddah in Cairo is a nightmare. Even if business flight"
Pros: "The food was really great, and the crew was so helpful"
Pros: "Nice tilt to seats, good food and service"
Cons: "Cabin WAY too hot, poorly controlled small children"
Pros: "Fast security queue Quick Boarding Luggage claim was quick"
Cons: "In flight entertainment very poor"
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "3 hours delay !"
Cons: "Being on time could’ve been better"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "The delaying of the flight for almost an hour with no obvious reason !! Not respecting other people’s schedules and no compensation whatsoever... very poor management..."
Pros: "Didn't like anything"
Cons: "Old aircraft, rude crew, terrible food and by far the worst in-flight entertainment"
Pros: "Direct flight, no other flights can do that."
Cons: "Air condition in airplane and Cairo airport was no good"
Pros: "Flights were on time and boarding was orderly"
Cons: "Vegetarian food was poor. It was just boiled vegetables. Even the bread that was given to others was not there. They treated Vegetarian food as Vegan food (although it was specified as vegetarian), so there was no butter, no yogurt and nothing but boiled vegetables and fruit salad. Hard to sustain oneself with that on a 12 hour flight! I asked the flight attendant for yogurt who just ignored my request."
Pros: "On time .. that was the most important thing for us for the connecting flight... crew helpful... food very good ..."
Cons: "All in alll good experience"
Pros: "Excellent customer service friendly, extra leg room in economy class. Great entertainment system"
Pros: "Every thing"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "every thing thank you"
Cons: "I overpaid my flight by up to 50 per cent more than my fellow passengers yet they were allowed 2 bags each while I only got 1 . The flight attendants don't offer drinks except with meals . They took for ever to remove the trays after the meals that passengers were trying to take them out by themselves . They don't pass by with big bags to collect any garbage ."
Cons: "Boarding on desk was so bad , they forced ne to put my handbag on bagage and prevent my to take on board ,, also to pay lot of money"
Pros: "Cheap!"
Cons: "The plane, supposed to take off at 6 pm crashed into another plane on the JFK tarmac around 7 pm. An hour later we were deplaned and then were uncoordinatedly brought to a shuttle... took 90 minutes to get transported to a hotel... that didn't have capacity for all... then another hotel... still no capacity for all... so I took an uber to another hotel on my own. It's 1 am before I get to my room and crash (no pun intended). Besides the incompetent organizational response in a crisis: The plane was not cleaned Dry -- no alcohol on board Food was meh. Looooooong 36 hours with Egyptair."
Pros: "Comfortable trip"
Cons: "Hot food not great"
Pros: "Crew was Excellent Food was great Seat was very comfort I will keep flying Egypt Air and i recmmend it strongly. Weight allowance so generous especially for frequent flyer Gold memebr and above."
Cons: "Entertainment needs more enhancement"
Pros: "Good service in flight. Better food than most"
Cons: "Airport handling"
Cons: "The pilot was excellent in take off and landing. He got us through some turbulence in a smooth excellent way"
Pros: "Confortable seats, good entertainment, attentive flight crew"
Cons: "Pilot didn't clearly communicate what the issues were for our delay. Safety rules and regulations were ignored by passengers and not enforced by crew (people walking aisles while plane was taxiing, passengers without seatbelts on during takeoff and landing, etc)"
Pros: "Crew were nice, food was good, overall pleasant experience"
Cons: "Boarding was slightly late and so flight was a bit late."
Pros: "excellent service excellent food great value for money"
Cons: "would like better entertainment system"
Pros: "Crew were lovely. Boarding was on time and efficient. The flight was not crowded."
Cons: "Food was fairly ordinary."
Cons: "Poooooor"
Cons: "There were announcements about the flight being delayed which were difficult to understand. On announcnent of the boarding procedure, families with children were not given priority and all passengers were called on together raher than by rows (BACK TO FRONT) so boarding could take place without delays!"
Pros: "There was an hour delay with the return fight, other than that a great experience."
Pros: "Pilots are excellent at smooth landing."
Cons: "To most Arabs, broadcasting a prayer before taking off is routine and goes without notice. To foreigners, it could initiate fear about the safety of the plane as it projects a need to rely on a super power to make it. It's cultural and could be misunderstood."
Cons: "i need a refund. our flight back to NYC from dubai was rescheduled with significant delays such that it would affect our jobs. We decided to book a return flight via qatar and we need a refund for this booking"
Pros: "Very friendly cabin crew."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Crew - Very poor customer service"
