Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Everything. Firstly the flight was delayed, these things happen but nevertheless I end up missing my connecting Qatar flight to Belgrade, put into a horrible little hotel for 24hrs without my bag, no clothes or toiletries. At one point during the flight once everyone had their chairs reclined one hostess told me to not put mine so far back?!?! Then when asked well then person in front of me has to move theirs forward and her response no they don’t. Absolutely shocking. To think I wanted to upgrade to business class. I’m traveling the globe over the next year and thought let me try Qatar but never again with this type of service and how they treat their customers."

Cons: "Many of the entertainment systems were broken."
Pros: "Not-so-full flight meant we could move about and choose more comfortable seats."

Pros: "The Crew The food"
Cons: "Transiting. Made to stay in the airport for over 8hours after a 9hr 35mins flight. I was not happy about it. I hope that, on the return journey, when transiting time would be over 10hours, i would be lodged in a hotel. Thank you."
Pros: "Great flight. Everything was good. The only very small issue is hey offer WiFi but even if you pay the allocation of data make you feel like you living in the 1990. 10 meg free and 300 meg for a whole flight is a complete joke, especially for USD 30. They could manage protocols but give a reasonable service."

Pros: "The airline in general was good, provided a kit with socks, ese plugs,toothbrush and other essentials,good movie choices, overall customer service. They had free wifi which was amazing!!"
Cons: "We took 2 long flights one from morrocco to Qatar and Qatar to dallas. The food on the flights was not the best, one the first one they ran out of chicken meal and only had fish left which was gross, for such a big airline you would also think they give a snack in between meals but they do not.also after giving you the food it took a long time for them to pick up the tray which I thought was unusual"
Pros: "The crew on my side of the cabin was very good."
Cons: "Not having available air for the center seats made our flight a truly awful experience. The older style seats are actually more comfortable for taller and larger people. My wife was virtually ignored by the male crew on her side of the aircraft."
Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"
Pros: "Soft blankets, seats were okay, crew was wonderful."
Cons: "No wifi even though kayak advertised the flight as having it. Bathrooms were full of trash and quite dirty by the end of the flight."

Pros: "It was just a lovely airplane with a lovely crew. Also, good airplane food."
Pros: "Departed n arrived on time"
Cons: "Small old plane crow were tired I think"
Cons: "Seats in economy very uncomfortable for long Doha to LAX flight. When person in front of us reclines seat for entire flight, it is almost impossible to get out to stretch legs or go to restroom. At the minimum, crew should ask all passengers to raise seats during meal service as a courtesy to those behind them. This is done on other airlines."
Cons: "I checked in a couple of hours after checkin open but unfortunately I could not get my preferred window seat, got a middle instead. But still the leg room would have been ok but the middle seat (second row behind the bilkhead row) had the front passenger's entertainment system arranged across the footwell, not sideways, so it completely blocked the footwell and prevented any stretching of the legs. I am a tall passenger and this caused much discomfort on the flight, I had to keep getting up to walk around. I also found the seat bottom quite uncomfortable (not enough padding I think), butnghis could have been made worse by the footwell issue. Regards Neil"
Pros: "Todo estuvo prfecto"
Cons: "La comida no es nada del otro mundo"
Pros: "Wonderful friendly service yet not overpowering. Clean airplane esp. clean bathrooms with efficient amenities. Fruits were sweet."

Cons: "Had a broken seat it didn’t recline...."

Cons: "On this flight, the Gluten Free snack wasn't good. Only one meal was served. For a 10 hour flight, there should be two meals. A snack was served towards the end of the flight. The GF snack was not good! it was two rice cakes with chicken inside. I felt as if they ran out of GF bread!"

Cons: "debarking process was one of the longest in my life"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very cheerful. There was a good variety of movies and other entertainment."

Pros: "My first time on Emirates and it was great. Lots of room and amenities even in economy. Food was surprisingly good."
Pros: "Good sleep is most important & emirates is very good in this regard. Food is only fair especially the hot food served at dinner. Wines served are generally of a good to a high standard. Some crew members are better than others. Some are really excellent including any of the Irish members of the team - they always standout with their warmth, friendship & ability to read people & situations."

Cons: "i did not like the food"
Cons: "My car was left in Dubai , & I am not sure when I will get it."

Pros: "Boarding and traveling comfort was good .As always staff were very good and attentive.Food not very good snd boring."
Cons: "Waitwd 1 hour"
Pros: "Excellent service from ticket agents, cabin stewards, etc."
Cons: "Because we were late, my baggage didn't get transferred. I had to ask around to find out who handles Turkish air baggage issues in Tel Aviv. I found out within a out half an hour what would happen -- you had them delivered to where I was staying the next day. It all went smoothly and fortunately I had allowed extra time after I arrived ... no problems. And the people who handled your baggage claims were professional."
Cons: "Unconfoetable seat for business class. No priority for boarding in business clas. Old plane."
Cons: "From more than 1h layover to 5 minutes."
Pros: "Everything was perfect!!! I have no remarks!!!"
Pros: "First leg (Mia to Instanbul) crew was excellent!"
Cons: "second leg (Istanbul to Johannesburg) crew were rude!!!"
Pros: "Large screens, reusable dishes + silverware"
Cons: "Plane was old, felt more squished and the seats did not decline. Also very note."
Pros: "Likes: The staff were prompt and friendly. The food was more varied and imaginative than on other airlines. Also, the fact that you get a refund, without any hassle, if you need to change your travel plans, makes this airline unique."
Cons: "Suggestions: A few more centimetres of space between the rows of seats would work wonders. A piece of fruit (apple or tangerine) would add to the enjoyment of the food. A wider range and variety of movies would increase the quality of the entertainment."
Cons: "The flight to Lviv was cancelled after 3 hours delay. All happens in life. But the only option Turkish airlines were offering is to fly the next day. I was flying to the funeral and this was not working for me (especially this was their second flight to Lviv cancelled - 2 in a row). The transfer desk didn't inform that there were two other flights going the same day of other airlines. When i approached to help me to go with a different airline the personal was very rude saying they will not help transferring the luggage and that they can't unload the luggage sooner than 3 hours after you go out of the security and passport control. When i asked to book to a different destination in Ukraine. It took 50 min at the desk to do it. Simply because 4 people at the desk were laughing and joking and nobody was concerned about the queue of over 40 people staying. After 30 min it turned out they've lost my boarding pass and it took 15 min to find it as one of the transfer guys managers simply took it to a different room... At the end when they found it it took only 5 min to do the work. I would appreciate more information from the desk about available flights and more support to manage the situation. I'm happy that people at the transfer desk are so joyful and happy it obviously helps to deal with the stressed passengers whose flight was cancel."
Cons: "It was a struggle to get our hotel from the turkish hotel desk crew. We were travelling from Cape Town to Toronto with a little baby and had a layover of approx 10 hours at Istanbul. They claimed that our layover was 9 hr 40 mins (and not 10 hours) and I had to argue before we finally got a transit hotel. Their customer service is poor."
Cons: "I didn’t like being in a middle seat"
Pros: "My experience on Turkish Airlines exceeded expectations. Boarding was smooth and the flight was on time. Service was excellent and staff professional. The crew was courteous but the hostesses could try smiling a bit more. Their courtesy was appreciated but it felt very methodical, more of an obligation and not spontaneous. The pilot did a great introduction and gave information about the trip. Also the plane toilets were clean compared to other companies. I expected to see a wider selection of more recent and award winning movies. Will definitely fly Turkish Airlines again."
Pros: "The seat was comfortable."
Cons: "The entertainment system was not working"
Pros: "Last my lagge"
Cons: "It should be connected fight with my other flight"
Pros: "Same as the first flight. Entertainment is good, foods good, crew was nice, USB charging is great."
Cons: "Kinda annoyed that it was a two prong plug for the headphones. It was super hot and I couldn't rest. Not a lot of space beneath seat in front for personal items."
Pros: "Everything perfect . Departure /arriving / check in / transfer lenth ."
Pros: "the crow"
Pros: "Extras provided - eye mark, socks etc"
Cons: "My seat was unable to recline. My husband and I were moved to a middle aisle (although we really didn't want to share) only to find that the foot rest at my foot rest was also faulty. It was an uncomfortable flight"
Pros: "No delays Courtesy of crew Very pleasant fly"
Pros: "Surprising level for such a short flight."
Pros: "Super friendly staff, lots of real food to eat, travel kits including slippers and tooth brush, like a throwback to when flying was fun."
Pros: "Food was tasty and fresh but staff cold and aloof"
Pros: "Very nice crew and not at all crowded flight, also the flight was extremely fast."
Cons: "Very loud plane so that I couldn't watch a movie and understand the audio."
Pros: "Once again an extremely enjoyable experience. will continue to fly Turkish air"
Pros: "Food was pretty good."
Cons: "Crew was disorganized. Half the plane didn't get the bread that was supposed to be on the breakfast menu. Service was slow and not enough crew. Also had to wait 30 minutes to use the bathroom because the crew told me I couldn't go into the one I was already in line for and the other one was being cleaned. Seats were more cramped than most airlines (and I'm short)."
Pros: "I would definitely fly on Turkish Air again. The seats were roomy in comparison to other airlines I have flown on. The inflight entertainment was excellent in comparison as well. I thought the food and beverages were pretty good for an airline as well."
Cons: "Just the concern that people were not instructed to stay seated until the airplane came to a complete halt. People were out of their seats and getting luggage out of the overhead bins well before the plane had taxied up to the gate. Please make an announcement to keep passengers safe. Also, the cabin crew could have been a little more helpful to passengers. They kind of stood around and did nothing when a gentleman and his child got on the airplane and other people were clearly sitting in his seats. The man had to straighten out the situation with the people who were in the wrong seats. The flight crew needed to have been assertive, ask politely for people's boarding passes and taken care of the conflict, not the customer. My flight was late and I missed my connection to Seattle. Turkish Air did put us up for the night and provided meals without a hassle."
Pros: "As always, great entertainment system. Constantly updating and improving."
Cons: "For some reason, I didn't get the option to choose a meal type at check-in, as I sometimes have in the past. Seeing as it's Passover, and I don't eat meat, I wasn't really able to eat much from the default meal I was given."
Pros: "It is just superb"
Pros: "Service, food, entertainment is off the charts!"
Cons: "Seat comfort and legroom in Economy is below standards for even a domestic flight. Flew for over 21 hours on two concurrent flights and I was almost insane. Last leg was on Jet Blue and I felt like I was in First Class with their leg room and seats."
Pros: "I always enjoy flying with Turkish airlines it is a breeze from check in all the way destination from food to entertainment it all runs so smooth I will fly with u any day so far that is the best"
Pros: "We had a great flight other than the uncomfortable seats. The food was outstanding and the staff the staff was very accommodating. I was glad I was able to charge phone/tablet on the plane"
Cons: "My seat didn't lay back, which made it was difficult to sleep. The seats are too close and generally uncomfortable. I just wish we could have toured Istanbul since we had a long lay-over. Took forever to find out where the tour was only to find out we needed Visas. The airport staff was not helpful. The bus tour is promoted on their website, and it sounded like it was easily accessed as soon as we were off our flight from Johannesburg. Not so."
Pros: "Wide sits, great food, very organized. Very helpful stuff."
Cons: "It was just great"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 4.5 hours. We got a few drinks and snacks while waiting. No real information was provided and the flight was delayed by one hour at a time. Kids were tired and hungry. Crew did not help. After a few hours we got some blankets. We had to sleep on the airport's floor. We had to buy food. We did not know what will happen with our connection flights that most of the passengers missed because of the delay. This was a nightmare!"
Pros: "The crew is super. The food is good and the entertainment system is almost perfect (free WiFi will make it the best ever)"
Cons: "legs space, legs space and legs space. I will hesitate to pick up turkish only because of that. in long flights there are a lot of satisfaction factors but this is the most important one for me. if I have to get up every 20 min to stretch, it is not working."
Cons: "One of our suitcases was lost. Well, fine, it happened. From Kyiv we went to Georgia for a week. In one or two days we received a text to come get it in the Batumi airport. We came there - nothing. Then next text - come get it in two days. When it finally arrived - it was torn. I don't know who to blame in the first wrong text, I don't know why and how the suitcase was lost, I don't know who torn it, but in general it was all very wrong and inefficient."
Cons: "Seating too narrow"
Pros: "Nothing, just the price"
Cons: "I had 2 flights and both were late, the plane seats is really not comfy and the plane has no entertainment"
Cons: "Wine program for international business class was sub-par"
Pros: "The same as above."
Pros: "Everything went very smoothly. Nothing to complain about."
Cons: "I was not unhappy with any aspect of the flight."
Pros: "I have flight in many airlines and was my first expeticence with turkish airlines and it really was excellent. Nice service good planes."
Cons: "Need to have more variety in the food and entertainment on board"
Pros: "The extra security measure at IST gave us peace of mind given the travel warning the US had used involving Turkey. Second, the quality and quantity of food was fantastic and more than we've ever experienced in any airline."
Cons: "There was a large group of young people who were disruptive the entire flight from Istanbul to Chicago. It did not appear that their adult chaperones were doing anything to control them, nor did we see the flight crew intervene."
Cons: "The entertainment did not work good the entire flight"
Cons: "Beef main course overcooked and dry."
Cons: "Seats can be better."
Pros: "Planes were comfortable and well maintained."
Cons: "One cookie with tea is not enough at this time of day! Boarding was organised terribly and was the main reason for the delay."
Cons: "offering water at regular intervals (or at least once or twice in the entire 8 to 9 hour flight would be good."
Pros: "The flight was only about 1 hour. Everything ran smoothly once we took off. The crew was very good, providing gate information for connecting passengers."
Cons: "It would have been better if we had departed on time. I don't remember why there was a late departure but it made it difficult for some passengers to make their connecting flight. My husband and I hurried to the gate for our flight to Washington, DC but that flight left late, too."
Pros: "Actually a very roomy plane for these days. Highly recommend this flight and plane type."
Cons: "The food sucks - bring your own."
Pros: "Nice touches like pillow and blanket, lots of movies and hot meals."
Cons: "My seat was very uncomfortable for such a long flight! It didn't recline and was cramped. Also I have terrible nut allergy and when I tried to communicate that to the flight staff the kept telling me to tell someone else."
Pros: "The crew was excellent and the seats are v comfortable"
Cons: "I cant really think of anything"
Cons: "Touch screens were not working well. Required multiple hard taps which disturbed the passenger in front."
Pros: "Non eventful flight."
Pros: "Same as above same as a bove"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "service, on time,efficient boarding, no hassles"
Cons: "I did not like the fact that I was not on this flight."
Pros: "The aircraft was great. A bit wobbly on take off and landing, but overall spacious and comfortable seating. The seats had many position options which was amazing. Meal service tableware was clean and pleasant to use. Food was also great. Also a very wide selection of entertainment options! Also, good flying from the pilot’s crew. Flight was on time."
Cons: "The servicing crew in the business cabin was inexperienced and unrefined. The flight attendants seemed to just want to “get it over with” with questions like “are you done?” The attendants wanted to take our drink order as soon as we got in without giving us a chance to settle into our seats and kept hovering over us until I had to ask her to give us a couple of minutes. The airline did not stock enough snack and ran out mid flight. We had to wait for the next meal service which was not fun. I ended up getting a sweet drink just to get by. Internet, which was paid, was so slow that I got tired of watching it trying to load the pages and gave up. Eventually, the connection completely stalled even though I still had over an hour remaining of the 4 hour package. I used maybe an hour of the total purchase. Total waste because I couldn’t get any work done. Overall, I did not think this was an experience worth a business class ticket."
Pros: "There was an empty seat next to me. Sat near the back & it was still a pleasant flight with sufficient room in my seat. Served food & drinks with no charge."
Cons: "I will fly Lufthansa every chance I get."
Pros: "Fast boarding."
Cons: "The usual flight discomfort, but the seat in front of me was broke. The person in it struggled to stay out of my lap, which I appreciated. The connecting flight had a non-functional screen and the reading light broke and flew across the cabin."
Pros: "Again the flight wasn't full so had plenty of room."
Cons: "The sandwich they offered was pretty bland."
Cons: "Over 30 minute delay for an hour flight! Frustrating."
Pros: "All good - flight, service all great!!!"
Pros: "The crew, again, was fabulous. Boarding, once the stuffy wait was over, went quickly. They attended to every request with smiles, gentle humor, and without delay. Nonstop movies were a great help on this second of two long legs, and it was really nice to have control over pausing, replaying portions, and jumping ahead past sex scenes. A 10-sec forward button like the back button would be very useful to skip nudity scenes, there were families around us! The trip was as comfortable as it could be, given close proximity of seats. Appreciated the pillows and blankets, and frequent water and drinks."
Cons: "Boarding was pretty terrible - no instructions, go left, give up the water bottle we JUST BOUGHT even though it was still unopened (it had to be "sealed", still no idea what that means because the seal wasn't broken), and the waiting room was very stuffy! Seemed we should have been able to get air...? Boarding went quickly, though, thankfully. Breakfast was pretty bad, one of us just skipped it once opened because it was so unappetizing. Would have liked movie ratings to appear in the descriptions to save the risk of getting started on lame shows."
Pros: "Crew was very courteous and efficient"
Cons: "Seats were too small. I noticed my neighbor was a fat big woman and she was occupying part of my seat and arm rests so I couldn't move because she was almost on top of me. It was a very unconfortable journey."
Pros: "The flight was canceled!!!!!!!! It was late night and the was. I explanation given to cancellation !!!"
Cons: "My flight got delayed so I wasn't even in the airplane. I'm staying at the airport for 24 hours before the next one leaves. Didn't offer hote, blanket or anything. They didnt care. I'm never flying united airlines again."
Pros: "My highlight for the travel was the AMAZING flight attendant named JENS. He is a bright soul. Positive, sharp, witty, and humorous. Just what I needed on a 8 hour flight over the Atlantic."
Pros: "Lots of movies to choose from. Meal was great. I liked that the cabin crew gave us plenty of water & choice of fruit juices"
Cons: "All was great."
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "No bad"
Pros: "Boarding was done qickly and efficiently. Ha"
Cons: "Food really not necessary on this short flight. The wafer cookies were even given to those who were sleeping. I had one dropped in my lap... and another on the empty seat between me and the sleeping passenger by the window."
Pros: "Good staff, comfortable seat"
Cons: "The transfer from one Lufthansa flight to another"
Cons: "Not enough indian movies. Too many other foreign movies. English movies were too old. Frankfurt airport is the worst airport. Terminal to terminal is too far."
Cons: "Pilot strike caused much distress in Frankfort. The best that could be done was a layover extended by 5 hours and a diversion to Luxembourg. The final leg of the trip was further delayed an extra hour due to mechanical difficulties in Luxembourg."
Cons: "Pay for Wi fi"
Pros: "The flights itself was ok. The flight attendants caused me no problems, and the flights, when I FINALLY got on them, were smooth."
Cons: "everything else. The franfurt airport closure made me miss school because they did not offer extra flights to accommodate all the displaced travelers. I had to stay in the Frankfurt airport for a FULL EXTRA DAY, and every time I tried to get a new ticket, or ask anyone for help, I was given the run around. No one was helpful. I talked to about a dozen Lufthansa employees that day and only one was helpful at all. It was a hellish nightmare. Before my last flight, I was furious with how I had been treated all day and a horrible Lufthansa woman yelled at me for being upset about the situation. Then, when after much hassle I finally got to my destination, I was told my baggage was lost. That was on thursday and I still have not gotten it. i am never flying lufhansa again. This was the worst trip of my entire life."
Pros: "Nothing no communication for delayed flight lost luggage. Just lines everywhere to fill out forms with only 2 employees worst experience ever"
Cons: "No communication. Flight delayed no answers. Just long line to be put on a waiting list"
Pros: "Food, drink and entertainment are very good."
Cons: "Did not care if I made my connecting flight or help me to understand if I could make it, seats are terribly overbooked and crammed. Many people visibly aggravated and mobility compromised due to seats,"
Pros: "Why am I getting this email. I am not this person taking this trip..I'm frustrated with this ...I talked to the the airline already numerous times and still I am getting emails from Lufthansa and kayak."
Cons: "I got a wrong flight from you, different than the one initially selected, upon my payment !...with 6 hours overlay instead of 50 minutes. For that I had to pay extra $300 !"
Pros: "The crew was incredibly pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "The entertainment system didn't work for many passengers, and had to be continually reset, and sometimes still did not work. When it did aorkX it was extremely slow and unresponsive. Also, the USB and electrical outlets near the seats did not work and power devices"
Pros: "Overall, great flight. Great service, food was excellent, flight attendants were very competent and very polite."
Cons: "Liked everything."
Pros: "The seating under normal circumstances would be reasonably good, even for economy.. Because a larger-than-usual plane was needed in DC, a 747-800 was dispatched, and there was a lot of empty space, so many of us could spread out and sleep well. Even allowing for the very light passenger load, the crew was excellent in every way."
Cons: "No criticisms at all."
Pros: "Nice attendants."
Cons: "They left one of the bags at Frankfort and we had to wait 8 hrs at the airport till they could get it back."
Pros: "The airbus seating was comfortable. It was my first time in this type of plane, and it was a great experience, even in coach class. The crew was great. I gave respects and received 10X more. Thank you Lufthansa!"
Cons: "I don't eat much on long flights so I don't have much to share, though I did feel that food quality can be better. To be fair, the same comments apply to all other airlines that I have flown, with Emirates being the exception. No big issues for me personally, though."
Pros: "Everything is excellent."
Cons: "As mentioned above."
Cons: "After we realized our flight was cancelled we were trying to reach Lufthansa but couldn't for a long time. It was very frustrating. There was nothing we could do on their website either. No alternative flights were offered, no additional information about how and when we can fly home. We had to stay one extra day on Salzburg since this was the only option given to us by Lufthansa when we finally spoke to them the next day. This experience with Lufthansa was absolutely disappointing and we will probably never book with them again."
Pros: "The food was pretty exceptional for a 2 hr flight."
Pros: "The flight was great, comfortable and accommodating."
Cons: "Our bag was left in Frankfurt."
Cons: "One flight attendant was less than pleasant and was short toned with my friend for no reason, twice. After turbulance they took forever to bring us water, it was intense."
Pros: "Good selection of tv shows and movies. Comfortable seats. Pleasant service."
Cons: "The food was awful - basically inedible. I fly quite a bit, different airlines, and this was the worst I've ever seen/tasted."
Pros: "They an amazing crew"
Cons: "They need to improve on the flight check-in and boarding at thier airport in Bole, it is so messy. Also thier inflight menu is nothing special"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and all flight details were available and constantly updated."
Cons: "Ethiopians App for self check-in."
Pros: "Fine flight with good meals."
Cons: "TV was broken, had phone so it was okay, the frustrating but was the call button. I rarely hit it, did this time for an arrivals card, the guy beside me messed his up and used mine while I was sleeping. No problem, until I hit the button. No one came for more than an hour, I even made eye contact."
Pros: "Land crew attention was polite and nice"
Cons: "Restrooms on board was dirty, no toilette paper nor tissues. One fight attendant was particularly impolite, hitting and pushing instead of asking"
Pros: "Crew was really great - helpful and kind."
Cons: "Both flights delayed which meant I missed my connecting flight. Stuck in Rome airport for several hours with no information about rescheduled flight. Finally figured it out with help of Rome airport information desk."
Pros: "Very good,on time good service"
Cons: "Better seats on business in boing 737 800"
Pros: "I love the entertainment and frequent availability of food and drinks"
Cons: "The seats are too squished together. I was stuck next to a fat woman who kept shutting off my movies by hitting the controls of my arm chair"
Cons: "No Gin & Tonic Bus transfer to airplane for international flight? Twice...?"
Pros: "The crew was great. Extremely accommodating for families."
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "they woke me up in the middle of the night to give me food.."
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Food somewhat better than prior leg but far from business class standard."
Cons: "Plane fittings coming apart; dirty seats; no personal screens - they use an overhead CRT! Didn’t know such old panes were still being used by Ethiopian. While friendly, crew could be more attentive to travelers needs - eg refills, water etc."
Cons: "see above"
Pros: "It was a comfortable flight with good intertainment."
Cons: "The food could be better."
Pros: "we had an overnight stay in addis ababa so we got a free accommodation in town, that was so great, a chance to see town and get a good night sleep before our next flight. the plane is big with screens so you can watch movies, the seat is comfortable, even for a tall guy like me (1.9 m)."
Cons: "It did took a lot of time since we landed until we got our bus to take us to town to our hotel. we waited in the airport for more than one hour, it was late, and we were tired. but after we got to the hotel, it was perfect"
Pros: "Thumbs up. Flight was smooth and on time!"
Pros: "Attendants were courteous and the spacing is better than some airlines, but that’s about it."
Cons: "Check in was a disaster: no logical control of 100s of people; delayed on the tarmac for 1:45 for a “minor technical reason” that apparently had nothing to do with the actual operation of the plane that prevented me from making my next flight. Food was terrible. Flight attendants could have been more helpful about my missed connection."
Pros: "Liked the peaceful plane ride and room"
Cons: "Not being told why we were delayed or why we were going to be late. They told us over loud speaker and was not loud enough."
Pros: "The crew very Politécnica and sensitive"
Cons: "To get the same food twice in the same flight To be awaken by the serving if the meals"
Cons: "On board attendants not the friendliest Kids food options very limited"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit strange - everyone seated at the gate had to get up, leave the area, and then wait in line to have their passports checked before sitting back down in the same area. After that though, boarding was perfectly smooth & honestly one of the fastest I’ve seen!"
Pros: "Seats are reasonably comfortable with sufficient storage space Food was OK"
Cons: "Chech in was poor - didn’t have priority stickers for business class luggage. Had to go to different counter for hotel voucher. Overall not good and professional Didn’t have ice on the plane ( for drinks, water etc)"
Cons: "The entire flight was great!"
Pros: "Having never even heard of Ethiopian Airline, our expectations weren’t very high. We found the boarding process to work well. The staff was great and the meals were very good. The flights were on time and efficient."
Cons: "On many of the flights we had to use the roll up stairs. The water that they served tasted like tap water. The seats seem closer (less leg room) than other airlines."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Good not that great - a suggestion - why not something like fresh bread (sandwiches) with cheese and tomato on it - bread often not so fresh"
Pros: "Very calm, professional and willing to help you enjoy the flight as much as possible. They show true concern and not a detached professional management that you get from most flight attendants of other airlines."
Cons: "The services at the airport was terrible. The Booked me a flight with only a 30 minute layover. When I try telling the people before boarding the plane, big Norred me. When I told the flight attendant she said she would talk to the captain to see if there’s a way I could get a ride to my next plane so I wouldn’t miss it. That never happened. When we got off the plane no one at the airport would help us and when I was trying to run to my next terminal one of the officers at the airport told me to slow down because I wouldn’t miss the plane and I was fine. When I asked help with directions and told him I was afraid of missing my flight people laughed and walked away. When I finally found my terminal and got to it, my flight had already took off seven minutes prior. I absolutelyHated my experience flying with Ethiopian air. The seats are uncomfortable on the plane, not all the seats recline back the same level, and when I was eating dinner I decided to eat chicken since I can’t eat beef and halfway through the check in my stomach started her and I looked up the chicken and it was still pink inside."
Cons: "Boarded plane, then sat for over an hour before departure due to paperwork processing of plane mechanical check. However, we still arrived close to the time we expected."
Pros: "Overall it was good flying experience. They upgraded me to an exit row for free when I checked in and asked, which was nice. We had a blanket, pillow, and toothbrush kit on our seats. They fed us and had in flight entertainment. This was a 10 hour flight, so its so important to get these types of amenities. I flew a different airline to my destination, and they didn't feed us at all! It was terrible! Ethiopian was much better!"
Cons: "The food wasn't very good (but most airline food isn't), the flight attendants didn't seem to be working much of the flight, just hanging out with each other (I was seated near them), and I really wish there was more room to get up, move around, and stand. On a 10 hour flight you can't sit the whole time. Wish the seats were a little wider, especially for such long flights."
Pros: "Excellent food, very friendly and helpful crew e"
Cons: "Entertainment center did not work Limited storage place in business class for items like mobile devices etc"
Pros: "This was an A-350 and the plane was very nice. Better entertainment system than the 777. The flight was smooth and the food was good."

Cons: "flight smelled like pee"
Cons: "Did not provide special meal although I called ahead to request it."
Pros: "Got a free voucher"
Cons: "My phone was stolen on airport premises They didn't have my requested meal for one of my flights The boeng 737 is tiny. No leg room and was terribly hot."

Cons: "4 flights ,4 delays. poor customer service . every things is very slow ."
Cons: "flight got delayed"
Pros: "Great service!"
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: "It was a night flight (~4-5 hours), however, 80% the time the lights were on... people did not want to eat/drink... and get disturbed constantly by the crew. We just wanted to sleep. Without lights"
Pros: "New aircraft 777 from Boeing"
Cons: "Food was so poor. Only option was chiken"
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: "Was a bit concerned because I only had a 45 min layover in Addis to change plans, howeve Ethiopian Air made sure we were met coming of the plane and facilitated a fast transit. Checked luggage also all made it through. I was pleasantly surprised. I flew Nairobi to Cape Town with connection in Addis."
Pros: "787 was comfortable"
Cons: "Food was edible but no more. Flat angle beds I thought had been extinct, especially on a new 787"
Pros: "Entertainment options were good and they fed you several times"
Cons: "-changed flight schedule several times after booking ticket -3/4 segments were delayed causing me to miss connections - staff unaware of procedures -several mechanical problems with plane -still do not have bags after 7 days -no compensation provided for inconvenience -poor customer service"
Pros: "The short time it took to get to my destination. The great work done by flight attendants."
Cons: "The small seat I got."
Cons: "The food is terrible."
