more leg room please

more leg room please

Food was tired and tasteless. In past, pre COVID, out of Singapore, in-flight food was fresh and tasty.

Paid full SQ fare but return trip was on scoot and without any entertainment and no given choice for food.

information guide where to go next gate.

It is just a normal flight. Short flight. The Aircraft was bit older and was very shaky.

We enjoyed the flight very much. The flight staff was very helpful and friendly.

Pandemic policy: airlines need to have currently update on the website for clearly requirements for Covid 19 certificate in hours , example form.

Pros: "The staff was amazing"
Pros: "The help desk employees who helped me rebook my flight."

Singapore restored our upgrade at the airport but only on one direction so we had to go through it all again."

Pros: "Entertainment excellent, cabin crew superb"
Pros: "More movies and TV than you can watch, incredible cabin team, low cost, I mean, what's not to like. American, are you listening?!?"

Pros: "Good seats, personal TV with movies and good shows. They gave us socks, blamkets, pillows headphones, etc."
Cons: "The crew was chronically rude to me. They would skip me when handing out beverages to everyone. I was lied to and passed down the beaurocracy over issues with my Stopover Holiday packages. They lost my bags. In Hong kong, I was told the designated smoking area in the terminal was close and the steward encouraged me to go...I almost missed the flight even though I didn't even make it to where she directed me. It was not close, she was a liar. They lost my bags. They kept calling me sir despite my corrections and obvious female anatomy. They had no remorse or apologies for their errors"
Cons: "The Manchester stopover was just a lot of standing in lines. From Manchester to Singapore, the plane was full and my seat mates didn't get up when we needed out. So, we escaped to the back for a while where we were "hushed" by a stewardess. The stewards didn't seem to like it when we were out of our seats, but 12 hours is too long to be stuck in a middle seat."
Pros: "The overall experience was good. Crews are friendly and approachable. Food taste good."
Cons: "Beware of babies on board."
Pros: "everything"
Cons: "the gates the time intervals and the connections..."
Pros: "From the beginning until the end the service, the vibe, the flight itself was amazing. I don't know any other airline I flew with so far that hosted me and all other flyers better. At any time I was supported by the staff and even if it was busy they constantly had a kindness and smile in their face. I don't fly with any other airline on long distance flights! It was clean and neat on top at any time. I love flying with Singapore airlines. I feel safe and in good hands all around. This is how service should be at any airline! It is never less good but a constant since years! Thank you"
Cons: "There is nothing I did not like."
Pros: "Everything about this airline was great. It would be impossible to go hungry on this airline. Half the time I can't get a bag of peanuts on a 6 hour flight. On Singapore airlines someone was always there to accommodate you. Best service I've had yet. Highly recommend this airline!"
Pros: "Movie selection, very helpful crew and good quality food."
Cons: "Nothing!"

I’m not going to repeat this airline. It’s a first time but they have worse carry on luggage restrictions.

Liked nothing. Food was awful and so was service. There was no entertainment.

Would be nice to have some entertainment in the flight

just perfect

Indigo carrier didn't even get to board from concourse itself during Doha's hot temperatures. It was a bus transfer. The right door of flight was used for wheelchairs and 4 wheelchairs had to wait for 30 minutes in the loading vehicle cabin without AC. Staff I'm this loading cabin didn't wear mask. Flight didn't run AC , air filtration and ventilation system until it took off to save money. Around 10 people I know got detected covid positive because the air filtetaration and AC system was turned off.

The entire crew was awesome, very courteous and well above the standard. Keep up the good service and I would want to travel more with Qatar Airways.

Service was excellent but food was mediocre

Instead of 1 hour layover in Doha need to wait for 5 6 hours.

Never reached there flight got cancelled 2nd time in a row

Hostes are very gentle & courteous.

Better boarding system than just 4 zones. Within each zone, boarding needs to be done with specific rows at a time.

Pros: "Everything about the trip was great excellent customer experience"
Cons: "If I got to sit in first class coz the plane was so empty haha"
Pros: "Crew was very professional and served snacks and beverages at regular intervals. One of the fellow passengers was over reacting to some minor unintentional neglect by an female crew member and told her to shut up when she was trying to understand the issue. But the crew handled the situation very professionally."
Cons: "Food could’ve been better."
Cons: "No gate for departure or arrival. No business class longe in Cape Town."
Pros: "Seats were ok but they often were out of vege options"
Cons: "I wanted to upgrade to business class but the process was problematic— had to be done at transfer desk not at gate — after i had been thru security ☹️ Discouraged ne from trying"
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."
Pros: "crew was so kind and lovely with our daughter"
Cons: "food was fairly rough from Doha and the wine options in economy on all flights were terrible"
Pros: "Crew is friendly and polite. The guy at the boarding who made my day after all my nervous story with boarding pass! With his one sentence and sweet behavior the difficult transatlantic trip became more comfortable."
Cons: "In Tbilisi there were problems with boarding pass from Doha to NYC, as they said at desk than I’ll git it in Doha without problems. The arrival was late, wat Doha’s desk they tried to give me boarding oass , but at last sent to the information desk, at that time I had only 1 hr before departure, lazy woman at dest was not so much helpful and friendly, at last I’ve got the boarding and run to the gate as crazy. It was possible to say that I can got it at the gate too"
Pros: "Staff are very polite and helpful (ground staff and in the air)."
Cons: "The food was hit and miss. Some of it was good and some of it used ketchup as a sauce. The economy seats have been stripped down to budget airline level padding and the rows seem have been been jammed in a little closer."
Pros: "All except the food"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "The plane was new and spotless, the crew did everything possible to make the flight great. Food service, and Wine and Cocktails were always served with a smiling face and it made you think of flying many years ago. Service cleanliness of the restrooms and staff were top notch"
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "The Crew was only Alright this time, not has attentive jas the first Time, but still good"

Pros: "All good"
Pros: "Food and entertainment was fine."
Cons: "Crew was not very organized or helpful. Need more training/experience."
Pros: "In time ,food"
Pros: "all nice"
Cons: "nothing but avoid bread"
Cons: "My seats from Doha to Mumbai were very uncomfortable....37EFG. The 37D was a pain stepping out and in."
Cons: "The changed the time of flight had to wait airport for 5 hrs"
Pros: "The crew were nice and cautious"
Pros: "Small airport"
Cons: "Transfer is inconvenient."
Pros: "Great service and great meal options!"
Cons: "My flight was delayed almksr 3 hours...nothing more. It's very frustrating because the problem could have been avoided if they were more careful but oh well. I'm making this review very short compared to my others because I know that if I start on a rant, I won't stop. Trust me, I'll safe that for the phone call complaint I'll be making in a few hours..."
Pros: "Cabin crew including the ground staff were awesome in providing best of its class customer service. Food and entertainment onboard was really good."
Pros: "It was actually on time."
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Staff very friendly. Loved the adjustable headrest as I am shorter and this is the first time flying that my neck was so comfortable I didn't need my travel pillow! Food was excellent!"
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "We had requested wheelchair assistance. And the way helper was assisting us its not professional services. Which Qatar Airways promissi g to us."
Cons: "Helper was literally dragging two whelchairs at a one time. Means two passengers sitting on two different whelchair was pulled by one helper. I actually want to share video with airline so they will understand what they are promissing and what they are providing to their customers."
Cons: "The entertainment did not include any music (classical or otherwise)."
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."
Cons: "It was all good"
Cons: "The legroom is ok but the space between two seats is very tight and felt very cramped throughout."
Cons: "Plane configuration; seats were a bit cramped, knee space."
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: "Another B787. Had empty seats next to me."
Cons: "No menus handed out by the crew and little explanation of what the meal was beyond beef and rice or chicken and potato. For some reason they only serve a snack instead of a second meal on this flight."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Crew was friendly and attentive to passengers (I give them 4.5 stars). The seats are comfortable. The plane was clean."
Cons: "My 18 year old daughter (turned 18 on December 20, 2016) was singled out, searched extensively bodily and her bag, for no reason what-so-ever. It was a traumatizing experience for her... needless to say, nothing was found and no explanation was given. The seats recline too far back so that the person behind cannot enjoy what they are watching. The crew has to keep asking the passengers in front to pull their chairs up slightly."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I am platinium and got treated that way!!"
Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "F"
Cons: "I have booked the flight for my mom and I requested a wheel chair her, she Has a broken arm . And I booked the flight with this company cos I thought they have a great service, but not what I expected, they didn't provide a wheel chair and she has to drag all the bag with one working arm , so I m not pretty satisfied with the trip at all and I won't fly with th company any more"
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Flight left on time!!!!!! :)"
Cons: "Food was served too late. Unable to get a bottle of water as I was dehydrated."

Friendly staff, very nice airplane.

When boarding started, it was like refugees rushing to a life boat. Everyone was rushing to the front. Only one KLM staff standing there saying "... now is this group, yours is next,,,, we will call it out...." While he stopped some travelers, he did allowed some others passed without even checking their ticket. They have all the digital gears, and the screens to show the current boarding sequences, why don't they just use that. For some of us that did not have a excellent hearing, it was hard not trying to get closer to understanding what is going on.

Muy buen servicio al cliente

24 hour delay due to a crew member arriving 1.5 h late. People clapped for this? Obscene. Will never fly delta again. A simple error could have been resolved by holding connecting flights for 15 minutes. But no, not enough passengers to cross the 8-10 person threshold. Lost $800 due to this malfeasance. Never flying delta again.

Wi-Fi didn’t work. Boarding was totally confusing. Guy next to me took more then his area. Constantly touching me pushing on me. Had a bag blocking getting out. Almost fell. Crew didn’t help

Pros: "Norhing"
Cons: "They have mabaged to lost my luggage"
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Flew KLM 27 years ago and the airlines seem to be stuck in the same era. Food is poor quality... Have you recently checked the Gulf carriers."
Pros: "Service, technology"
Cons: "Could not print by boarding card and was not allowed to board in Amsterdam"
Cons: "Unaccompanied minor flying to Lisbon overnight. Bag was lost. No real effort to assist. Bags of unaccompanied minor should be treated with priority."
Cons: "Please Endeavour to put the expiration date on the food served in the flight."
Pros: "The staff was very helpful and professional. Promp response to calling for attention."
Cons: "Wish there was better lumbar support for the seats. The food could be a bit more exciting with simple addition of lime pickles. Overall can not complain for economy standard!"
Pros: "Very friendly service!"
Pros: "Decent seat size. Sorta slept the whole flight."
Pros: "Flight crew; legroom even in cheap seats."
Cons: "Exceptionally unhelpful customer service when asking about extra kilos/bags. Just quoted the online info back at us. We simply wanted to know how much would be charged if the bag was 1-2kgs overweight. We could not get a straight answer, just quoted the unclear company policy. Extremely frustrating and annoying. KLM offer a superior flight experience - it is a shame their terrestrial customer servic does not match it!"
Pros: "The supplied pack of toothpaste/toothbrush"
Pros: "Flight was delayed for three hours and was a very stressful flight"
Cons: "Flight was not on time and got to destination very very late pier management of aircrafts"

Pros: "The flight was delayed due to fog, but the staff was amazingly helpful to make sure everyone got to their destination."
Pros: "The staff was fast and curteous."
Cons: "There is not anything to complain about besides the usual discomfort of travel."
Pros: "."
Pros: "Wide selection of entertainment, food was good."
Cons: "Boarding unorganized, but that may have been more of a passenger issue then KLM"
Pros: "Flight crew on flight from Amsterdam to Cape Town were probably the most friendly and enthusiastic I've experienced and no, they were not all young. The plane was spotless throughout the flight. They were always coming around with water and juice and they genuinely seemed to care about all the passengers. The Flight back crew were just the opposite. More like the old lazy farts you get on the American carriers or BA or QF long haul. Whoo have been there for the long haul and should have stopped ages ago."
Cons: "The Entertainment images on the screens promoted Beauty and the Beast, Batman Lego movie but neither were on the system! Food quality was rubbish"

Excellent flight

Cons: "J’ai eu à payer un bagage supplémentaire sur internet à 160 euros. Mon compte a été débité et à l’aéroport de Dakar les agents au comptoir me disent qu’ils ne retrouvaient pas le payement du troisième bagage. J’ai été obligé de repayer le bagage comptant à 190€"
Pros: "Good aircraft, good service, on time, eventless"
Cons: "There are two types of foot-rests, both are a nuisance for people with long legs. The one popping up from below one's seat is extremely hard to put back in place. The metallic one folding down from under the seat in front cannot be secured back and is always in the way if the passenger needs to stretch his/her legs. This seems to be a new appliance, and I jut wish they would do away with it altogether. More is not necessarily better."
Cons: "Comfort plus seats need some work. Very thin padding on a hard seat. The leg rest needs to come up higher so you don’t slide down while semi reclined. Nice compromise between business and coach though."
Pros: "The entire experience was amazing that gives me a broader scope to choose from when selecting flights to Europe. The most amazing part was the attentiveness of the staff. Exemplary!!!!!"
Cons: "For me this part is not applicable"
Pros: "Amazing crew and on time flight"
Cons: "None"
Cons: "the tray was broken and the water felt all over. the flight was 1 hr delayed. All of us stood the 1 hr waiting to know what's next. We could sit."
Pros: "Crew great."
Pros: "The cue lines per zone are a brilliant idea!"
Cons: "An explanation to passengers as to why there was a backup between the gate and the plane."
Cons: "There was no entertainment and there was a lot of annoyed passengers and flight attendants"
Pros: "The flight crew on the flight was amazing. Went beyond basic needs and requirements."
Pros: "Didn’t like the sandwich offered"
Pros: "Short flight so I can't really complain. It was no frills, standard small aircraft with no high tech entertainment system. Seats were fairly comfortable"
Pros: "Over all pretty good for price."
Cons: "10 minutes late to the airport....... No help, no refund, no nothing. Never using you again"
Pros: "No extra charge for simple refreshments."
Cons: "Old plane."
Cons: "My luggage was lost in Paris. Now I need to wait still."
Pros: "Modern aircraft with power, big screens etc"
Cons: "Teenage crew, poor service (not even water brought on request, all "self service" at back of flight, and not being allowed a second drink with dinner), poor language skills (crew not very helpful when 2 hour delay meant I could miss connecting flight, suggesting I "walk fast")."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Did not seat together passengers, although booked and checked in at the same time."
Pros: "Late leaving - no reason or apology. A bumpy flight all flight. Food almoat inedible. Seat gave bum axhe after 45 minutes. Staff friendly, but they dropped my meal"
Cons: "Nothing to like"
Pros: ". Budget airline with no legroom or extras"
Cons: "See above. Nothing specific to like."
Pros: "Personnel"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The airplane was modern, and the crew very good. Nice, service oriented and in general trying to make the flight experience as good as possible."
Cons: "The flight was very late. I lost my connection. My bag was lost and unable to recover it so far (after more than 24 hours). About to initiate the next leg of the trip with no clothes or any idea if my luggage will be recovered."
Pros: "The cabin crew were excellent"
Cons: "We were transported to the plane which was quite some distance to the plane via bus after climbing down steep stairs from the departure gate area. Then we had to climb steep steps in extremely hot weather. We were then delayed for a hour in the plane in very hot conditions as the plane had its air conditioning off and the ground air conditioning was not put on. We were swearing in the heat for an hour!! We arrived at our destination and hour and half late!!"
Pros: "Plane was comfortable and new."
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "Average"
Cons: "I leave my jacket in the hanger when I get off the airplane I realized that they didn’t gave it to me. I inmeadiatly tey to go back but I couldn’t I went to the counter and they said that there was noting on the plane !"
Pros: "I liked the crew, they were professional and tried their best"
Cons: "The flight was a chartered flight . Air France informed us that due to cabin crew shortage they couldn't operate an air france flight and hence they hired Air Belgium. Whilst the crew were nice , the actual plane was old and creaky. It wasn't up to the standards expected of Air France. They could have done better in getting a plane up to standard. A lot of the passengers were disappointed ."
Pros: "Boarding for BUsiness class was fine. Seating was cramped."
Cons: "As I said in my rating, seating was cramped. Food was mediocre. Crew was pleasant."
Cons: "Took very long from landing/ arrival until baggage could be collected. Priority luggage came out last!"
Pros: "Plus seat was good. On board crew was nice."
Cons: "Another Air France company, with their motto: We Don't Care. Ground staff was rude, no good food onboard and have to pay for it. Entertainment is your device, but you can't download the app to use it."
Pros: "Courteous crew"
Cons: "Movies were dated. Crew spoke limited and broken English, not good enough for international flights."
Pros: "The food was pretty good and the staff were friendly. During our transfer in Paris, my mum had a medical emergency and had to go to the medical centre. As such wr couldnt go to our final destination in Morocco and had to get our luggage off the plane. The staff at the AF counter were very helpful in that aspect. And when one of the luggages was completely damaged, it was replaced it with a brand new one which was fantastic. On the way back, we had some issues with the ticket because we didnt go to Morocco as planned which resulted in some trouble checking in. But the staff at the counter were quite helpful."
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The crew, the service, the food and beverages"
Cons: "The 3 hours delay"
Pros: "Punctual, not crowded."
Cons: "Even though the plane was far from full, passengers were allowed only 1 carry-on item (no personal item), contrary to policy published online by Air France. This policy applied even to people with Economy Premium for the rest of the trip (which allows 2 carry-on suitcases, not a useful feature if one cannot begin with this number to reach the transoceanic flight)."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Window pane was broken on my side and I couldn't shut it down. As it was a day flight the sun heated my skin badly"
Cons: "There were not noodle soup ready this time."
Cons: "Had to check in our underweight small carry on because there was no space left. Left out hotel at 3.15am. A dry croissant did not satisfy three hungry children for breakfast, the coffee was terrible and the seats too close together. Not a good experience."
Pros: "On time departure and arrival"
Pros: "Good on a short flight"
Cons: "Paying for carry on due to weight limit. First time this ever happened!"
Pros: "It was a 30min flight not much to say The crew on the ground really took care of us"
Cons: "Na"
Pros: "The crew nice people, boarding was fast and pleasant, the flight was pretty good"
Cons: "nA"
Cons: "Food was not good."
Pros: "Boarding was very efficient"
Cons: "Losing my luggage after checking it at the gate when volunteers were needed."
Cons: "We were rebooked, which understandably happens for any number of reasons. However, we were not informed or asked about our preference until our luggage was checked through! The staff especially in Chicago where we began this awful experience couldn't care less about our situation. Then AIr France lost our luggage and provided no help in locating them. We had to rely on folks who had friends working in Zagreb Airport to locate them. Air France is incompetent, insensitive and unprofessional. If you have an important trip avoid Air France - they treat you like captives not customers."
Pros: "The boarding process was smooth and the crew friendly. Flight ran on time."
Cons: "Unloading the baggage took over 90 minutes, and there was no explanation for the delay and nobody from Air France in sight on the ground in Boston."
Pros: "Best flight I've ever flown. Blankets and pillows provided with many options for movies."
Pros: "nice crew; excellent check in experience!"
Cons: "boarding in Riyadh is always a nightmare. and as many have noted, the seats are too close for the average size of many boarding in Riyadh"

I had an excellent experience with Ethiopian Airlines.

Thank you very much kayak

Old Boeing 737 for a 7 hour flight (usually it is a wide body 777 or 787). Business class seats are worn, no entertainment, flight was delayed and arrived more than an hour late. Boarding was by bus where we waited long in the bus and then had to stand in the rain in queue waiting to board.

I've never been served three bread courses in a single meal before. Was really impressed by the novelty of that.

Delayed baggages

Pros: "Crew were very good. Comfortable flight."
Cons: "Choice of movies could be much better."
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: "After the Kigali Addisababa segment this was vastly superior with a newer aircraft"
Cons: "Airport Addis Ababa is chaos."
Pros: "The airline was quick to give vouchers for food and hotel when flight was delayed by 5 hours. They were also efficient in rebooking missed connecting flight."
Cons: "On top of a five hour delay that got me to my arrival point 14 hours behind schedule, my two checked bags were also lost and have not been found up to two days later. The food was like being on a Delta flight, and the entertainment screens in my entire row would not work, nor did many others."
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."
Cons: "Entertainment is non existent. Plane is tatty."
Pros: "Very good,on time good service"
Cons: "Better seats on business in boing 737 800"
Pros: "Way more leg room than I expected. The crew was very nice, the announcements were made in 3 languages, which was nice for the non-Amharic speakers!"
Cons: "Boarding in Lomé took a long time, which I believe made us a little later at the airport. Not sure if that is something fixable or not"
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: "Crew was good. Aircraft was fresh and clean."
Cons: "The movie selection is very mediocre"
Pros: "The crew was great. Extremely accommodating for families."
Cons: "The orderliness during boarding needs more work"
Cons: "The landing was terrible and quite dangerous. It was a lopsided and the plane was about to tip forward when we hit the ground. I was quite disturbed on arrival. I’m glad to say the we were lucky that webdid not have an unfortunate incident."
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: "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."
Cons: "On board attendants not the friendliest Kids food options very limited"
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)"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Aircraft and business seat just medium Food quite as fast-food service"
Pros: "A"
Cons: "The plane was shaking everywhere thought I was gonna die"
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."
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: "It took quite a while before the first service. It would be nice to have a drink service sooner."
Cons: "flight smelled like pee"
Pros: "Personnel were good. Food on ET is always great."
Cons: "Technical problem caused massive disruption in flight for all. Missed connections and forced unpaid for overnight in Addis. Truly terrible experience"
Cons: "Did not provide special meal although I called ahead to request it."
Pros: "That I finally had an on time flight with Ethiopian airlines, having suffered through an absolutely miserable outbound flight"
Cons: "On connecting from Bangkok to Nairobi passengers are funneled into a security waiting area with no water, coffee, duty free shopping- absolutely nothing but dirty toilets- for a 2+ hour layover. Bole airport is surely one of the most disfunctional airports on the planet."
Pros: "The hospitality"
Pros: "food and beer were fine"
Cons: "4 flights ,4 delays. poor customer service . every things is very slow ."
Cons: "flight got delayed"
Cons: "I had to purchase the upgrade to business class at the airport. On your site business class was not available."
Cons: "There was a deley of 3 and a half h"
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 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."
Pros: "It showed a decent tv show but the intercom kept interrupting"
Cons: "Delays leaving, delays arriving, the plane felt dirty"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Aircraft change led to massive confusion. No priority boarding for business class. Inept and care-least service from the head cabin attendant in business class. Zilch entertainment. Inedible dinner"
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: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Asian vegetarian food came for me at the end After telling many times to cabin crew Airport hostess were rude On 16th from Nairobi to mumbai one of my bag didnt arrive to mumbai .mumbai staff of Ethiopian airline was not ready to even answer .it was v disturbing As was travelling to some other city had to buy new stuff for trVelling"
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"
Cons: "I used kayak to book the flight and the website provided had the incorrect web address for checking in. When I went directly to the Ethiopian airline website they wouldn't allow me to online check in. I called the agency and I couldn't be connected to anyone. I missed the physical check in by 4 minutes and no one was at the counter to help me reschedule. Really disappointing."
Cons: "The food is terrible."
