The experience was exceptional all the way from the boarding process, into the seating, meals, cleanliness, and support by the flight attendants.
Very bad management of carry on baggage. I don’t care how many check in they allow compared to other airlines but they are worse for carry on piece…… never going to repeat this airline in future
Bare bones flight, no entertainment, so USB port for charging either which is a problem as it’s a 4.5hr flight. Will be avoiding this flight next time or preparing with extra batteries. Food is poor when compared to the Doha-London Qatar Airways operated flight.
There was not enough of one option for the lunch served in Business Class. Big disappointment. Meal should be served by soliciting the choices of the passenger in order. Passenger should not have to ask for the soup and starters to get them!!! So better training.
The flight attendants were warm and had a great attitude. They were helpful and attentive.
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"
Cons: "No gate for departure or arrival. No business class longe in Cape Town."
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: "Amazing staff, clean plane, good food, comfortable seats in business"
Cons: "Plane was very warm. Uncomfortably warm Movie selection was boring. Too many Marvel films which was ridiculous."
Pros: "The service is really good. The only downside is that you have to be in Doha. But it’s always nice to leave Doha."
Cons: "The push button entertainment system doesn’t work well. You have to keep pressing buttons to make a movie play. And by pressing buttons, I mean, you have to hit the screen and wake up the person whose head is on the other side of the headrest."
Pros: "From new York to Doha flight seats are not that comfortable."
Pros: "Food and leg room"
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: "Great food and service. I like the short layover / transit time."
Cons: "Multiple security from Doha to Chicago. One should be sufficient."
Cons: "Internet connection from Doha wasn't there,"
Pros: "Boarding was very smooth."
Cons: "We were seated in the last row, and by the time the food came around, 2 of the 3 entree options were unavailable. We had to have fish or not get an entree at all."
Cons: "The visa check personnel were the most discourteous airline staff I have ever encountered."
Cons: "I had a carry on plus a laptop bag. On the website they say you are allowed to carry a personal item such as handbag or a laptop bag along with the carry on piece. This guy at Nagpur airport says the weight of both these combined should be under 15 lbs. are you kidding me?"
Pros: "Short flight. Attentive crew"
Pros: "The service of the cabin was great!"
Cons: "The food was not of the quality I would have expected from the expectation created by the airlines marketing. We boarded close to a full hour later than scheduled and the boarding process was very slow."
Pros: "Excellent seats..."
Pros: "air hostess very nice polite five star"
Cons: "seat alloted"
Pros: "Very affordable flights, good value for money. Most of the journey from Sydney to Oslo (via Doha) went qiluite smoothly)."
Cons: "The only thing I didn’t like about the experience was the fact that you can only check in one piece of luggage on economy class, and one very sour individual at the gate when boarding."
Pros: "Nothing. As flight was rerouted and airline changed"
Cons: "We didn't like the fact that our flight changed to a diff airline when we paid to fly with Qatar"
Pros: "I took advantage of the upgrade offer, and it was well worth it."
Cons: "Too many mosquitoes, but I'm not sure how they could have stopped them coming on board."
Pros: "Overall services"
Cons: "Checking in was very lengthy and boring. More check in counters could ease the situation."
Cons: "the returning flight from Doha to Chicago was absolutely old and small."
Cons: "Great service. Courteous staff. Professional and well groomed crew unlike some US carriers. Decent beverage and food offerings in biz. Badly outdated IFE system."
Pros: "Late night flight and new cabin design was great. Crew was friendly and quick to respond to requests."
Cons: "Entertainment options need to be expanded. Mouthwash should be added in toilet."
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!"
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: "Let's just say there was nothing I didn't like"
Cons: "I have no comment"
Pros: "For the first time, my vegetarian food was pretty good and I didn't have an upset stomach as soon as I landed in India. It was a miracle for me. Thanks, Qatar airways."
Cons: "The seat was uncomfortable as usual, I am in my 60s. But most of my economy seats are somewhat the same, so no difference."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats- Space between seats is very tight"
Pros: "Flawless boarding, service, food and arrived 30 minutes early."
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"
Cons: "Nothing wrong every thing is good"
Pros: "Boeing 787 with comfortable seats and large dimmable windows; handed out menus and two meals served; nice crew."
Cons: "The 787 entertainment system seems buggier than that on the A380—possibly an older system?"
Pros: "Leg room in economy"
Cons: "4am in the morning. I wish it was around 12 or 1am or 7am in the morning."
Cons: "I had booked the Amaya lounge for the 3,5 hours stop over. It cost $50+ and was so not worth it! Bad food and uncomfortable chairs plus it was really crowded! Next time I'll just go to a cafe! No seats at the gate when I got there. Slooow boarding!"
Pros: "On time, good crew, easy connection."
Cons: "Hard and tight seats for such long night flight."
Pros: "From start to finish the whole process with Qatar Airways was smooth and excellent."
Pros: "it makes my trip wonderful. Thanks quatar airlines and kayak"
Pros: "Food and drink options. Courteous."
Cons: "Smells from others"
3.5 hours delay will ruin any day!
I do not know how, but, rude crew and counter personnel is here, rest of things looks pretty standard without any difference with other airlines, that was not the case in the past

Cons: "Space is just reasonable on a long flight, even if there's seats more spacious that you could choose if you pay more."
Pros: "Crew great, boarding at Nice very organised, boarding in Amsterdam not so organised!"
Cons: "A queuing system would be better-it was a bit disorganised at Amsterdam!"
Pros: "No delay and nice staff"
Pros: "The space at my feet with the chair in front was a bit akward."
Cons: "Not being seated next to small kids. Perhaps they should have a separate section? ;-)"

Pros: "Crew was good"
Pros: "Best airline in the business quick efficient and outstanding service What else can you say"
Cons: "At the check in they made me pay 50€ for my luggage. This is really upsetting because from Houston to Venice they didn't make me pay. Either the website wasn't transparent or the lady at the desk made a mistake. Very upsetting, one luggage should be included."
Pros: "Efficient boarding system, clearly signposted. Professional staff"
Pros: "The seat was spacious and the concept of the evening meal being the lighter option was innovative and well thought out"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic and congested with not much information or order."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and there was enough room for hand baggage. I slept during the flight so do not have opinion on entertainment."
Cons: "Not able to charge my digital devices. When serving beverages and food, the same flight attendant missed me a few times. That was annoying but other attendants were very nice."
Pros: "Food was excellent, service from staff was friendly, and entertainment options were great."
Cons: "Not a lot of shoulder room being in the middle seat. But it had adjustments options for a lot of other things which were good."
Pros: "The entertainment options were good."
Pros: "The aircraft felt clean and quite spacious (decent legroom). Cabin crew was friendly and everything went as expected. Bonus points for the Beemster cheese sandwich (I was totally disappointed when they served the food, but more than pleasantly surprised by the quality of the cheese - I even bought some afterwards, from the Albert Heijn just outside the security area)."
Cons: "Very odd queue separation at boarding. Passengers were divided in 5 lanes, depending on their seating area withing the plane (for a more efficient boarding, I presume) but, by the time we all got to the actual aircraft, we formed another queue in the boarding bridge so it didn't feel like any time was saved or anything."
Pros: "Very friendly crew going out of way to assist in making trip comfortable"
Cons: "Had travelled KLM to Amsterdam on my first flight 27 years ago and the aircrafts are stuck in that age! Lousy seats, poor quality bathrooms, lousy screens, prefer not to fly them"
Pros: "He missed it due to having a 32 minute layover, which he ran all the way to board."
Cons: "he had no choice but to look at the closed door of his flight, and wait an additional 7 hours and they didn't even give him a voucher for food. I'm his mother, I'm currently visiting family in Scotland, so couldn't help him much. I'm pretty disgusting and disappointed by the whole experience."
Pros: "expedited check in with nice staff. Security staff were pleasant, and the entire check in process for everything was easy"
Cons: "there was no lounge close to our departure gate"
Pros: "Flight crew was fine. Food was good."
Cons: "Checking in was extensive for unaccompanied minor. But gate crew was very unnattentuve and though we showed up as first in line, they did not focus, and kept saying to wait. Ultimately our son was last person on the plane."
Pros: "The time keeping was very good. We left on time and arrived early on both occasion. Good organisation. Excellent service."
Cons: "Crowded seating, wake-up for breakfast service two hours before arrival"
Cons: "Boarding was a free for all. The travelers did not pay attention to the priorities."
Pros: "The supplied pack of toothpaste/toothbrush"
Cons: "No proper info regarding cancellation. Staff was unfriendly and abruptly responded to passengers."
Cons: "Flight way delayed 3 hours. Staff gave no information and wouldn't help rebook us onto other flights. They gave us food vouchers 2 minutes before we finally boarded, so we couldn't use them. The food on the plane had spoiled so we were all starving on the flight, and we all missed our connections. Horrible experience and wouldn't fly with KLM again."
Cons: "Two hours delay in the start."
Cons: "KLM can't seem to figure out the order of boarding the plane. Should be business - priority - everyone else. Instead they do priority first, and that's usually two-thirds of the passengers. Also, really tired of the fake business class on these flights..."
Cons: "OLD OLD plane with hard seats and tiny screens"
Pros: "Jet airways flight till mumbai"
Cons: "Poor legspace in Klm flight till Amsterdam"
Cons: "Only one queue for boarding. Flight late on arrival."
Pros: "I fly delta this was run by KLM they weight all bags delta does not they don't take TSA preach Check. Delta does It was a free for all with check in and getting into plane"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "Horrible. First, we lost a suitcase. It could happen but for two days they did nothing and only told us stories (so as not to use the word lies). Within a few hours (and thanks to airline assistance) we were able to locate the suitcase. Even then it took them two days to bring it to us, two precious days off our planned vacation (7 days) At the end of the shortened vacation, we got to the chek in, and told that since the ticket I had purchased form them two months earlier was too cheap ... and since the flight was Over booked, they would take me off the plane if all the passengers would arrive. It's unnecessary to describe what I felt until the plane took off. They apologize constantly, but do nothing practical. a bae company. no me nor my freinds/family will go with 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"
Pros: "Good flight, we got a nice snack despite it being a short flight, the staff was great."
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: "No entertainment or food needed on a half hour flight. Otherwise excellent."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Having to pay extra to pick a seat prior to check-in. I didn't, and got a decent seat anyway."
Cons: "Because of slow boarding process flight was delayed by 15 minutes. I had short connection in Amsterdam."
Cons: "The flight was very delayed. We sat on the floor because there was not enough seating. We eventually had to squeeze into buses and drive around the tarmac to find a plane. We lost 5 bags in the process but eventually got them 2 days after arrival. the bags did not show up when we originally were told they would."
Pros: "There was no flight! So it's one thing that you have to cancel the flight because of fog; but rebooking us the next day on a flight through New York that doesn't exist, was way below the standard of care I would expect from any airline. Apparently, the NY to LAX flight that KLM booked us on, was only one leg of the flight to Sydney Australia; and according to some airline agreement, only Australian nationals are permitted to take that flight! Running around at JFK from terminal four, to terminal seven, to terminal eight, back to terminal four, to get a flight out, was a bit much considering how tired we were – not to mention hungry, since KLM neglected to provide the kosher meals we had requested with plenty of time – BOTH going to and returning from Europe."
Heathrow boarding is a disaster. Gate was not posted until 20 minutes before boarding. We had to run thru Terminal 5 to a train where crowds were waiting. We were seriously crushed boarding the train to the next terminal. When we arrived at the gate, we had to walk down three flights of stairs to board a bus. The bus drove for ten minutes to a waiting plane where we had to climb up stairs with our bags to board the plane.
Assigned seating at the time of purchase and knock offs the Nick and dining to choose a seat. What a bunch of crooks. No mention of this was made when I purchased the flight -EVERY SEAT HAD A FEE! Delayed take off at origin and connection- HIW ABOUT A REFUND FIR MY ANXIETY? Very disappointed.
Was delayed and caused us to miss our connecting flight. In fact we've taken three Finnair flights in the last 3 months and every single one has been late.
No complaints at all. The flight was terrific
We thought that we needed to be at the airport 3 hours early because we were returning to the US. It turns out that since we were flying to Helsinki first we only needed to be there 2 hours in advance. Check-in in Stockholm was confusing b
This flight was a bit of a let down compared to our departing flight. The food was pretty bad, I couldn't even cut the meat. But the thing that made this less enjoyable was the terrible check-in process. We waited over 70 minutes to check in for Business class. Numerous people almost missed their flight, which made the line even longer. I've never waiting in a standard line that long to check-in, so to experience it for Business class was disappointing at best. Also, the flight attendants weren't as friendly as the ones on our flight to London. One of them with dark hair was great, but the other 2 were grumpy and seemed irritable most of the flight. The experience was quite different from our flight from SEA to LHR, so it was a bummer to end the trip on a mediocre note--especially with the cost of these tickets.
Awesome! I traveled in business, love it!
Cons: "Arrival to destination with 7 hours delay."
Pros: "The flight and the crew was very nice, and the food was very good."
Cons: "Some phone people were very nice, some were not."
Pros: "The friendly crew, and quiet cabin"
Cons: "The food was too Finnish."
Cons: "The food was poor, uninspired, ungenerous, inadequate. Perfunctory service. Poor movie choices."
Pros: "If you picked the wrong line then check in took 40 minutes, arrive early!"
Pros: "Plenty of leg room, and I got an empty seat next to me! Food was served on time (an hour into the flight, and about two hours from the destination). The options were decent particularly the caserole in terms of portions. Plenty of overheard compartment space, even with a nearly full flight."
Cons: "The arm rest between seats doesn't raise to the full upright position, only one-half way. The TV needed to be reset by the purser due to it being stuck on kiddie mode. If you're a snacker, bring food."
Pros: "Great service, staff and punctuality"
Cons: "The food was soggy and overheated"
Cons: "They run out of food choices by the time they got to me."
Pros: "Crew attitude, food, bluberry juice, punctuality"
Cons: "Babies under 1yr need bassinet by regulation, pls implement. Tough to hold kid for 8 hrs, even with baby bjorn - can injure baby's neck!"
Cons: "We didn't get from Helsinki to Dublin we were redirect via Paris."
Pros: "The gluten free meal was pretty bad."
Pros: "In JFK the Finnair staff helped us expedite our connection process (the flight from Helsinki was delayed and we hardly had time to make the connection)."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by almost 4 hours. It was a miracle we made our connection in JFK."
Pros: "The Finnair representatives at the airport were incredibly nice and helpful."
Cons: "I never made it on the flight because I booked through airfare.com which gives no warning or notices that passports need to be valid for three months after a flight to France. I ended up spending hours on the phone with them constantly being yelled at by their customer service reps."
Pros: "The flight overall was okey. Pleasant crew."
Pros: "Crew was fine. Uncomfortable seats bearable for the short flight."
Pros: "Well this was a first for me. The flight was overbooked and some one wanted to go to New York. Finn Air asked me if I would give up my seat they would get me on the next Finn Air flight to Chicago. I did and they even up graded me to business class on the next flight. It was the best flight experience of my life. Great food, hosts, and service. It was very comfortable the entire way."
Pros: "Staff was friendly and accomodating. The food service for the long international flight was better than I expected."
Cons: "Movie entertainment options were not consistent from plane to plane. On the arriving flight, the plane had an impressive offering of movies and tv shows for passenger viewing during flight, however, on the return flight, there was much less available."
Cons: "business class was empty and not able to upgrade at an affordable price"
Pros: "Slow boarding no order. Plus delayed flight for no reason"
Pros: "Tiny turboprop. Ok flight."
Cons: "Was not allowed to bring standard-sized suitcase as carryon: it does not fit in the overhead. This means I had to check it to final destination which I do not like to do."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work. Special meal was terrible. No toiletry bag for such a long flight. Btw I paid extra for a bad seat."
Pros: "A competitive price for tickets. Website easy to negotiate. Staff pleasant."
Cons: "Having to pay about $35/person to reserve a seat. This was a hidden cost. Very little legroom. Staff did not come around enough with beverage service. Boarding was late and confusing."
Cons: "It is ridiculous that they would not allow you to select a seat for free at check-in. There were many unoccupied seats, but some families with children were seated separately, so there was a lot of seat changing before the take off."
Pros: "Made up some of lost time from delayed departure"
Cons: "Seats cramped"
Pros: "That I made it safely to my destination. Updates from the cockpit were appreciated. Plane was nearly empty, so I was able to stretch out over severa seats."
Cons: "I haven't heard good things about American Airlines, and now I know why. Probably the oldest plane in the fleet. Entertainment was 2-3 fold down screens from the ceiling. I can't remember the last time I flew on a transatlantic fight with no entertainment- nearly 20 years ago I'm sure. Airplane food is never great, but food options were worse than normal. American Airlines customer service at JFK was horrendous, resulting in several passengers missing their flight. (I was there if 4 hours to spare, but had to wait 1hr+ to have my birthdate changed in the system.)"
Pros: "The economy seating was relatively comfortable and spacious, compared to some other airlines, and we boarded and departed on time. Boarding was quick, if chaotic."
Cons: "They gave us ipads to watch movies, which were old and didn't work well, but were difficult to hold if you also got a tray or a drink. They didn't give you much water and it was hard to get service. The airplane itself looked pretty old and a little run-down."
Pros: "The flight was great...the staff are wonderful people...they are so sweet and kind...they work so hard...the service was great...I love their personalities..The Movie selection was awesome...Because of my broken leg, they were there to help me right away...amazing crew...will be flying with them again in October....looking forward to flying with British Airways again... Thank you for the care... Yours Truly, Sylvia Smith..."
Cons: "I have no complaints at all...."
Pros: "Food on into fight inedible..No Food on domestic. Charge for everything."
Pros: "the price was very good"
Cons: "The meal time was a bit odd and there was no snacks served in between midnight full meal & breakfast which lasted for about 8hours"
Pros: "Personnel were very nice and fight was comfortable"
Cons: "Received an email 30 minutes before leaving for airport that flight was on time. Went to the airport and found out flight was delayed 4 hours"
Cons: "Flight cancelled after 5h at the airport. Impossible to be booked before 5days..."
Cons: "The flight attendants blocked off the last three rows of seats and laid down and went to sleep!"
Pros: "Did not have the special meal i requested"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable with plenty of room."
Cons: "Plane was broken and we had to wait 3 1/2 hours to get a new plane. Crew kept awkwardly mentioning during every announcement that the delay wasn't their fault... My husband's entertainment screen was broken and flickering so much that all shows/films were completely unwatchable. My screen began flickering 1/2way through a film."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. It was a long flight and they kept bringing us drinks and snacks for 10+ hours."
Pros: "The food and entertainment were good."
Cons: "This flight was operated by British Airways. The flight attendants on this flight were very rude and the plane was not as comfortable as the they Finnair plane."
Pros: "I never took it because....."
Cons: "your customer service agent refused to help, and I had to fly to New York and take a different flight to London, and the whole thing cost me an extra $2900."
Pros: "The staff was very kind."
Cons: "If I'm paying for a trans-atlantic flight (at a fee of $1,000), I shouldn't be stuck on a plane that is used for domestic flights,and thus does not have the space nor the comfort of a larger plane. And, if this flight is not going to offer the amenities accustomed to a typical trans-atlantic flight (such as in-seat TV), then the price should be substantially cheaper. I will be complaining to the airline itself for this, and may not fly this airline again."
Customs at CDG airport was soooo slow we nearly missed our connection with maybe 3 minutes to spare.
The de-planing process could have been better in Buenos Aires - it took a long time before the aero bridge was connected - not the fault of Air France..
Cons: "Boarding was a disaster as my companion was selected for random search which held us up as there was no urgency to process us. Then there was no sign for where we should go since upper deck on 747 so we went in "economy" line as indicated on ticket and then was sent to correct line when we got to the front, wasting more time. The seatrs were the most uncomfortable I have ever beeon on for a long flight. I also paid extra to be in the exit row, to have people constantly congregating in front of us.The food was also mediocre."
Cons: "The entertainment system was very old with minimum selection. My entertainment system actually stopped working. The seating area was very cramped. I called for service a couple of times from my seat, but nobody came."
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."
Cons: "Our request for vegetarian meals got lost after a glight was cancelled."
Cons: "Both flights through Detroit were re-routed, our luggage was lost for 4 days."
Pros: "Amazing crew and on time flight"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and extremely helpful!"
Cons: "The food could have been better"
Pros: "The gate reps from CDG to MSP were professionals. The cabin crew on the Delta flight were exceptional! This was not my experience in Copenhagen with the Air France staff, they seemed to be self centered and rude."
Cons: "Delta please make excellence a priority in all areas of customer service. Set high standards for staff so customers know that you appreciate them and are ready for business. The world is at the customer's fingertips, let their first choice be Delta. When their are bad days, customers will understand"
Pros: "The crew was amazingly helpful. My son was having some anxiety and they went out their way to make him comfortable. They were the best!"
Pros: "Everything! It was a wonderful experience."
Pros: "Over all pretty good for price."
Cons: "Flying back to US, passsengers get charged for their luggage. Which this is not informed to us, neither On our email nor when we were checking ( for free) in Us"
Pros: "No extra charge for simple refreshments."
Pros: "More experienced, professional crew, better food and service."
Cons: "A screaming child for 8 hours (understood this is not their fault, but it did make the journey unpleasant). Old aircraft with small screens, no power etc."
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")."
Cons: "I will not use o recommend to anyone to buy a ticket with the agency, at the airport in China we were treated like criminals because as they said we were not register in the system as passengers it was really a nightmare"
Pros: "Food was good. Crew nice and professional."
Cons: "Landing was not so smooth."
Pros: "Food, service, comfort"
Cons: "Security services at Manchester airport...too long and not friendly at all"
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: "Nice staff, very professional and helpful."
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: "Food and service was good and price was acceptable"
Cons: "Very long route"
Pros: "The cabin crew was very good!"
Cons: "The economy premium seats are very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Arriving safely."
Cons: "We didn't get boarding passes for the second flight at EDI so we had to exit the secure area, get boarding passes, and go through security a second time for the same trip."
Pros: "Flight attendant was very nice."
Cons: "We got socked with 40 Euro fees for our carry on plus personal item being 2 lbs over. The biggest problem is they were picking and choosing which bags they weighed. 10 people behind us and before us got in without incident. Plane wasn’t even half full so they were deliberately trying to make more $."
Cons: "Took very long from landing/ arrival until baggage could be collected. Priority luggage came out last!"
Pros: "Standard on most parts with pleasant staff"
Cons: "Flight was 1/2hr with poor pre-flight communication on the topic. Food wise, the chocolate cookie was better than nothing...but a little savory snack would have been nice."
Pros: "The crew took care with calm and kindness of a man in deep distress and erratic behavior. Impressive. More generally , the crew showed respect and attention to all passengers. Not frequent."
Cons: "Booked assistance and got dumped at the gate 3hrs before departure, no English spoken and didn't even ask if my mum needed the bathroom or if we wanted to do some shopping. Just in a rush to get rid of us. Flying only KLM from now."
Cons: "Movies were dated. Crew spoke limited and broken English, not good enough for international flights."
Pros: "Plenty of seat space"
Cons: "In flight entertainment and call button was broken ... crew never passes to ask if you’d like water."
Cons: "The room between seats is unbearable."
Cons: "The air France flight was overbooked and we had been in standby until the last minute"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The food was really poor. The chicken was as dry as it can be. The food taste was poor. I flow 3 weeks ago with KLM and the food was pretty good for flight food. Plus I didn't get my baggage at the end."
Cons: "Very warm and stiffy air on board. Need change light. Very sad neon. Probably Boing style."
Cons: "Delay over an hour"

I had an excellent experience with Ethiopian Airlines.
This flight the air was on, for a change, and we were comfortable. It was not full and the staff got us water, when needed. Bathroom cleanliness is an issue. Maybe more visual signs in the bathroom will help passengers who can’t read keep it clean? Also no toilet seat covers.
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.

When I told them that the power was not working in my seat and that I needed it for my CPAP (I call it my anti-snoring device), they arranged for me to move to another seat where the power worked for the CPAP. When the power did not work in the new seat for my laptop, they offered to let me charge it in a more powerful outlet near the galley."

Cons: "The whole boarding process was a bit chaotic. I was really called on the plane. I tried to signal for a blanket or some food but there was only 2 cabin crew members."
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: "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: "I was not allowed on the flight because I did not receive a confirmation email from Ireland airport even though I was never told I needed this."
Pros: "After a bit of confusion in ADD airport, we reached the terminal where my connecting flight was leaving from. Terminal 1 of ADD airport should be avoided at all costs! Boarding and the flight crew did a admirable and top job and made the difference for me."
Cons: "Terminal 1 Disgusting. Rundown, embarrassing, chaos everywhere and no real sense of security. No police or security presence. You could just walk right into a gate! I was shocked to see this especially being from NYC. If you can avoid Terminal 1 do so. The seats were DISGUSTING! Dirty, warped fabric seating was dirty and caked on. Smelled and many seats were visually broken. I'm glad I brought with me some Clorox wipes to wipe my area down with. You get what you pay for but wow!
