Pros: "It’s an old plane, so the seats are those older yet more comfortable type of seats!"
Cons: "Better service from the crews."
Pros: "The whole business class experience"
Cons: "During the same trip I discovered 2 different arrangements of the Business Class cabin on Singapore Airlines A350, SQ469 CMB-SIN, and SQ036 SIN-LAX. On the SQ469, I occupied seat 12 A (mono, aisle-window): A lot of plastic curved walls etc. For larger persons, the result is not quit comfortable."
Pros: "The boarding process was easy and straightforward, the seats were comfortable and had individual entertainment screens, the crew was very polite and helpful. For meals, everyone was given a printed menu at the start of the flight so that meal options could be easily made."
Cons: "My only complaint is that I would have liked to see more frequent offers for water refills during the flight, since water cups are so small and staying well hydrated on flights is difficult but essential."
Pros: "Overall, the staff was amazing, so as the food and cleanliness"
Cons: "The space between the seats in economic seat"
Pros: "Amazing crew! They handled a full flight with screaming indisciplined kids and clueless adults with grace. Entertainment was great as usual"
Cons: "Singapore food and drinks quality has deteriorated significantly. Flights are always packed with uncomfortable seating. These days you get amenities only if you ask."
Pros: "The help desk employees who helped me rebook my flight."
Cons: "After rushing to catch my connecting Singapore flight, their desks were closed and there wasn’t an employee in site. Given that airlines can see connecting fights it would have been great to have someone stay back to either give me a boarding pass or help me rebook! UNSATISFACTORY!"
Pros: "The crew was really nice. The plane was clean and comfortable."
Pros: "I like everything in Singapore airlines"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Crew was polite."

Pros: "excellent - comfy plane, great service, excellent stuff."
Pros: "Basics are covered. TV screen is big but otherwise nothing special."
Cons: "It is so annoying they want you to pay an extra $20 to pre book any seat. If you need the extra $20 that much, charge me in the original fare! Don't nickel and dime me. At check in they couldn't even get my child seated beside me although a change was made last minute at the gate. Every other airline I've flown recently was better. Sri Lankan and Emirates FAR better service."
Pros: "comfort, food, flatbed, movie choice. a quality aircraft, that is why i choose Singapore. i fly to Europe every year, and have flown with many different carriers, so i speak from experience when I say I prefer to fly Singapore as they are number one."
Cons: "they walked past me twice with introductory drinks without stopping and offering me one, I then had to ask for one.. not good. the younger staff need to develop the wonderful standard of the older staff."
Cons: "First experience with Singapore where the crew made a negative impression. As soon as the plane pulled away from the terminal, crew members seemed rushed and frantic, literally running back and forth from Economy Premium to the galley gathering items. Approximately every 7-10 minutes, crew members would be running back and forth next to my seat with heavy foot steps, which would wake me up. I also noticed that certain crew members were shouting at passengers to get their attention instead of lowering themselves to be heard. One flight attendant almost spilled orange juice on me because she turned around too fast trying to serve drinks. I'm not sure if they were short-staffed, or if it was the influence of a certain crew boss, but something was definitely wrong."

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Flight was half full, had the whole row to lie down and sleep in economy class, so had a really comfortable flight"
Pros: "The crew is good."
Cons: "The check-in is a disaster. A F-class passenger is treated as a Y passenger. Luggage limited to 2 pieces, even as GOLD FF, was made to pay US$200 dollars on a ticket of already 3,500 dollars and the price is the same for F-C-Y! The treatment was really commerce, as if the check in gets a commission"

Pros: "Everything was outstanding"

Cons: "Very poorly organized boarding"
Cons: "Internet on board wws not working"
Pros: "The entertainment system is good"
Cons: "The crew was poor. Didn’t appreciate when requested toilet paper in the toilet, as there was none. Ask for a snack as no food until 5hrs into the flight, crew were impolite and rude. The crew gathered in the gallery and chat among themselves. Very annoyed if you interrupted them, asking for a water."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "I was sitting in emergency exit so i will not complain of small seats"
Pros: "the crew are nice"
Cons: "food limited selection"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, enough space for legs, helpful crew, We were offered a voucher to stay in a hotel close to the airport to get a few hours of sleep or relaxation. The voucher included lunch and dinner with good food.."
Cons: "I didn't like the long delay to stay in the airport on hard chairs before leaving Cape Town. The delay affected all the other connections with long periods of stay in the airports. The whole flight was rough, being shaken all the time."
Pros: "The in flight crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The seat I have 41A is quite awkward, especially when 41B was a plus size person. The slanting profile of the wall also made it quite claustrophobic. But overall endurance."
Cons: "crew doesn’t seem to talk to each other. advised multiple times that my touch screen didn’t work and that i didn’t want the jain meal. your check-in interface does not allow changing food preferences. this should change"
Cons: "The flight on the B777 was most uncomfortable, even in Business Class. Will avoid any flight in this aircraft/airline in future"
Cons: "The entertainment was giving some issues and the staff tried to resolve it. Eventually it came right by it self..."
Pros: "entertainment is great."
Cons: "completely full flight."
Pros: "Was upgraded to 1st class which was amazing - the only thing I didn't like was it was a night flight and not long enough to enjoy it for longer!"
Pros: "It was fine. Crew was pleasant, though obviously stretched thin. Food was decent. We ran a little late boarding, but they managed to take off almost on time."
Cons: "The 777 was crowded and had very little leg room. Our seats were worse than most, as they were over the wing which limited visibility and restricted the already limited leg room of that passenger even more."
Pros: "The cabin crew always smiled and were friendly. At no time did it appear that they were just pretending to be enjoying their job. They worked with great effectiveness."
Cons: "The sandwich served with mayonnaise and chicken was at room temperature. It didn't set well with my stomach. The plane landed and then parked so far away from the terminal. It took a half hour to exit the plane, board the non-air conditioned bus, and arrive at the terminal. The shuttle bus was extremely uncomfortable!"
Pros: "Start scurty things with people who has short time to the next flight"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very cheerful. There was a good variety of movies and other entertainment."
Cons: "The issue is the electronics ban which is not the fault of Emirates. An extra bottle of wine was requested after dinner which never arrived. During boarding, it was difficult to know which group was boarding when."
Pros: "Friendly, accommodating, and professional service!"
Pros: "First time on Emirates. Can definitely see why the company gets such high ratings. Crew very efficient and accommodating. Food was better than I expected. Especially the smoked chicken salad. I would have ordered that in a restaurant actually. The flight was long but not the seat not uncomfortable. Would try them again."
Pros: "very comprehensive entertainment system"
Cons: "Food quality was a letdown. Crew was very rushed with meal service and did not return to offer drinks once meal service concluded. No ammenity pack for a business flight."
Pros: "Food and drinks"
Pros: "Everything!!!!!"
Pros: "Staff did their best and were polite but ultimately had no solution for the issue"
Cons: "I was unable to get an aisle seat therefore I was stuck in an middle seat. I am rather tall and the man on the window seat was morbidly obese and half of him was sitting on top of me for most of the flight. He also sweated all over me, snoredand snorted for the whole flight. I spent much of the flight standing and now have terrible leg oedema. It was the most uncomfortable flight I've ever been on. the flight was full so there were no reseating options apparently. It was extremely unpleasant."
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: "Staff or what resembles a cabin crew came to ask me to give them Back a water bottle that anther staff gave me earlier ? Asked me to switch off my Movie to fight for a water bottle ? Very unprofessional"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Excellent entertainment on a comfortable sized tv screen."
Cons: "More beverages would be nicer."
Cons: "Having to go through twice as arrived in terminal C and departed terminal A What a waste of time"
Pros: "Communication on phone prior to flight regarding baggage allowance & other matters was handled promptly & efficiently by friendly & knowledgeable phone agents. Ground crews in airports & at gates most friendly & efficient"
Pros: "Overall good flight and experience. Service defines EK from others."
Cons: "Boarding a bit disorganized and seats are very cramped up."
Pros: "Barcelona to Dubai flight - the flight attendants were personable, helpful, and very courteous. In-flight service was frequent with many stops to check on the passengers of a very full flight. Wonderful and attentive service, even when juggling such a large number of passengers. I was very impressed with the work ethic of this crew."
Cons: "The flight attendants on the Dubai to Singapore flight were surprisingly unhelpful. It was a mostly empty flight and yet during this flight, there were very infrequent beverage service. When I activated my call flight attendant button, no one stopped by. This included at least 3 different flight attendants passing me, some more than a few times, and not once did anyone stop. After waiting for 10 - 15 minutes, I turned off the light and went to the galley part of the plane, only to find a group of flight attendants socializing. I requested a drink and it was handed to me without the attendant every making eye contact as the attendant still was facing and engaged in their conversation. This is not the first time I have experienced this on an Emirates flight so I think the staff training may need to be reinforced. Business class service on Emirates is quite good. But I fly both Economy and Business class. The experiences in Economy did affect my decision on which airline I generally fly with for business class travel."
Pros: "On that route the plane can be quite empty on the Melbourne-Singapore leg, meaning lots of space to sleep in coach."
Cons: "Food served very fast (I barely had my first bite that they came with coffee and tea and never seen again). Quality of the food was ok."
Pros: "i liked the neatness and welcome"
Cons: "i did not like the food"

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: "Tripulación muy atenta"

Pros: "Went out of their way to be helpful"
Pros: "Gave food vouchers due to extended layover. Marché food quality is average at best."
Cons: "Biggest problem was late arrival, missing connection. Lateness caused by them at first, then a departing passenger caused further delay. But they were late to begin with. Next problem was their REFUSAL to give me an aisle seat. I reserved an aisle seat originally, aisle seats were available when I tried to change, but agent REFUSED to accommodate me with either aisle or window. Sat in middle with huge guy next to me. Very uncomfortable. Food was mediocre on this leg. Oh, and late departing AGAIN. Will seriously look for other options on next trip."
Pros: "Plane was clean and modern. Staff was very courteous. An overall pleasant flight."
Pros: "Crew were good, food was decent"
Cons: "Equipment/electronics was a bit dated."
Pros: "The visit to the lounge is always refreshing. The service at the shower area is great however policing of people using phones in the quiet zone should be enforced"
Cons: "The good got used a bus gate which is acceptable however this typically takes additional time if there is a connection flight"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, they were aware of alternative meal requests, professional, comfortable temperature"
Cons: "When dropping my bag at check in counter, the employee at the counter asked, somewhat intrusively, what the extra fee I paid was for. When I told her it was for the Al Mourjan lounge in Doha, her facial response and attitude came across as judgemental, and was not appropriate"
Pros: "Individual service, happy and natural looking crew, comfort and company aim."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly. On the flight, snacks and drinks were bright by every hour or so and the meals were plenty of food and tasted good. I was given a bag with eye cover, earplugs, socks, face wipes and ear phones. Entertainment was good as well. Qatar is an amazing airline. Wish we had something like this in the States!"

Pros: "All around great airline. Comfortable for super long flights and completely accommodating."
Pros: "Flight attendants very nice"

Cons: "Not enough films"
Pros: "Heavenly for an airplane ride!"
Pros: "see above"
Cons: "see above"
Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "All"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Stopover in Doha fun. The people are so friendly."
Pros: "Enterment"
Cons: "Crew nice alway take care customer"
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: "The flight attendants was nicer on this flight then the US to Doha flight"
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable"
Pros: "Could not be more impressed with the airline, absolutely would recommend to anyone!"
Cons: "It was all good"
Pros: "Comfortable seat and good service"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "In-flight entertainment is excellent. Some of the grew also excellent. Had excellent seat 68d. Lots of leg room. Aircraft looked brand new."
Cons: "6 hour delay with no explanation. No apology. Stuck in transit with nothing to do. Not impressed at all. Boarding also delayed. Food on this flight was very poor."
Cons: "Plane configuration; seats were a bit cramped, knee space."
Pros: "Nice and spacious aircraft."
Cons: "Some confusion on Hindu meal and vegetarian meals."
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: "The staff"
Cons: "I thought the flight was fine :)"
Pros: "Attentive service ready to appease any request very clean toilets"
Cons: "Type of aircraft Films Selections in particular World Group not changed much since April"
Pros: "I will fly Qatar again"
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."
Pros: "Qatar Airways is a nice airline and it's obvious they work on making your flight a pleasant experience with a lot of food, entertainment, etc"
Cons: "My flight was delayed 4 hours upon initially arriving to the airport. While it was important for me to be there when I found out this information because I needed to reschedule my connecting flightso due to the delay, this should not be required. Qatar Airways, knew the flight was going to be delayed at least 10 hours before they announced it. They should have already began the process of rescheduling connecting flights and figuring out problems before passengers arrive to the airport. I probably spent 45 minutes at the ticket counter working things out."
Pros: "Service from the crew @ Qatar Airlines!"
Pros: "The Airbus A380 double decker was very roomy and a wonderful plane to fly on. I loved this flight and it seemed like the flight breezed past very quickly. They had all of the star wars movies so I was very happy. Oh and the kids meals on these flights are huge. They seem bigger than the adult meals. So your child will not be going hungry for sure."
Cons: "Boarding was very strange. We had a 4 hour layover. We had to stay out in the hallway until about 30 minutes before boarding began. This was uncomfortable for passengers as there were very few seats and many took to sitting on the floor. The segregated room for boarding had plenty of seats but was locked off for some reason. We literally only got into the room just 5 minutes before we boarded. I thought this entire process was very backward. They need to let passengers use the room for longer periods. It was pretty stupid that we had to sit on the floor because they wont allow people to sit in the room with the chairs..."
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Vegetarian Food need to be Improved...."
Pros: "Smooth process all the way from check in to seating to disembarkation"
Cons: "none"
Pros: "YES"
Cons: "Toilets should never be wet."
Pros: "The hospitality of the staff Smooth sailing process"
Cons: "The food and the seats and leg room is too small especially for larger people"
Pros: "Lovely people an caring all the way through."
Pros: "Hard landing which gave passangers a shock."
Cons: "Food Seats cramped"
Pros: "Friendly crew. Comfortable and quiet flight"
Cons: "Dinner service slow"
Pros: "None that I like!"
Cons: "Flight delayed coming in therefore late departure of over an hour! My outgoing flight was also delayed that I missed my connection at Kuala Lumpur and was put on next flight 4 hours later arriving into Singapore around midnight!"
Cons: "Delayed again. 5 flights of people crammed in gate area 81 - 84. Ridiculous"
Pros: "Nice thick comfortable blankets. Delicious food."
Cons: "Quick transfer"
Pros: "The cabin crew and this was the only flight that reflects the correct boarding gate on my boarding pass."
Cons: "Incorrect information of boarding gate."
Pros: "There were choices of foods. I really liked the fact that they considered Korean natives as they gave kimchi together with their dishes. Attendants were polite and kind. 30kg allowance is a great merit too."
Cons: "Frequent delays in flights and changes in timings. There were many passengers and it's quite hard to carry my carrier through the alley. The foods may be in variety but did not taste very nice."
Cons: "Worst food ever."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Toilet was not cleaned."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "There was not much entertainment for kids .. and a"
Cons: "Food was not at all good.. there was not any food at dinner for vegetarians and also for breakfast"
Pros: "Service, free drinks, decent entertainment selection, and the food was actually a little better than edible, the best airline food Ive ever had (I haven't flown many long haul flights)"
Cons: "People don't stop growing at 5'8. There are people taller than that, in fact quite a lot of people are taller than that. So much in this world is made without this consideration in mind. I'm 6'1, I shouldn't have to pay hundreds more just so I have enough legroom. And I don't mean enough to swing my legs about as much as I want, just enough to be comfortable. This isn't essential on short flights, but just seems cruel to taller people on long flights."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew"
Cons: "food was horrible"
Pros: "The crew were friendly although some of the announcement was not clear."
Cons: "We had bad experience with the airline because our luggage was not to be found at Langkawi airport and we had make a report. Fortunately about 8 hours later our luggage was sent to our resort which we stayed. (we arrived Langkawi airport around 3pm, we were told by the officer that our luggage will be sent to our resort at 7pm but it came at 11pm instead) The snacks could have been better. Besides the salted peanuts, it would be better to add biscuits or a slice of cake. The orange juice is good but maybe if we are given choice of warm drink (tea or coffee) it would be great."
Pros: "NA"
Cons: "Delayed of baggage claims for 1 hour, flight retimed/delayed for more than 1hour"
Pros: "Not enough elbow space between fat passengers"
Pros: "Peanuts"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "There wasn't a food preference option when booking through kayak."
Pros: "Excellent food and crew"
Cons: "Seats rather basic for business class"
Pros: "Over all flight experience ok, lack of boarding information and ran out of menu choice but rest ok."
Cons: "Arrived in one piece but my luggage didn't; flew from Auckland to Singapore via KL with a 2 hr layover; how luggage didn't make connecting flight is beyond me; maybe they just lose things"
Pros: "Good was great."
Cons: "Flight was late approx 1 hour. Seems like a regular occurrence which is not good"
Pros: "Leg room. Thanks Charles. Legend!!! 9c but prefer 10"
Cons: "My screen didn't stay up. Needs fixing"
Pros: "Crew were awesome. Could not do enough for you. Very personable too!"
Cons: "Security at Adelaide very slow and under resourced."
Pros: "the staff were pleasant"
Cons: "the food was ok as I like spicy. But one mouthful of water and a small wine. soft drink, etc was not enough on a 4 hour flight. Leg room was very bad. I am average hight 5 ft 10 inch but could only sit sideways aas not enough room"
Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "Check in- only 2 desks open."
Pros: "I like their timely service and cleanliness."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Very uncomfort flight, very bad timing, Food is not good"
Pros: "Nothing remarkable"
Cons: "Nothing unremarkable"
Cons: "Transfer from domestic to international terminal in KL was slow as only 1 customs officer was working"
Pros: "Food, entertainment, staff and confort all up to the usual MAS standard"
Cons: "Plane was 45min late departing and I was meeting my partner connecting in KL. There was supposed to be a 2 hour layover - instead we almost missed my flight. Fortunately, he was able to hold the plane and I made it. My baggage didn't though - and was only delivered to the hotel at midnight after a convoluted process claiming it at Tan Son Nhat Airport. Not really good enough given we paid extra in order to be able to travel together. Pick up your game MAS - 2 planes out of the sky and you won't regain customers like this!"
Cons: "I fell asleep during the meal serving. Instead of waking me up or putting my meal on my tray, it wasn't served at all."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Rude staff on ground and cabin crew. Delayed. Lost baggage. Terrible customer service. I would never fly again."
Pros: "The staff is great"
Cons: "We had to wait very long for take off"
Pros: "They left on time"
Cons: "Website is a debacle, asked to preorder meals for business but can't, can't check in on line, business menu was limited, what was on the menu wasn't offered. Seats are uncomfortable, short & narrow. In general for the amount of money paid for business, it's the worst yet"
Cons: "No food, No entertainment"
Pros: "The crew were reasonably friendly and our experience at check in was positive with an accomodating staff member."
Cons: "Very tight seating with little leg room. Meal was forgettable. Only flight where seating wasn't changed from original booking."
Pros: "The crews are friendly."
Cons: "Foods was not good for my standard. Below average."
Pros: "I liked the crew, very polite and helpful."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that I could not check in on-line. This made that I missed half a night of sleep in Darwin because I had to check in at 1AM, flying at 4.10AM."
Pros: "Nothing much"
Cons: "It was freezing on the first flight and although I gave requested for a drink twice this was never brought to me. The Flight attendants were rude and not helpful."
Pros: "On time departure, nice aircraft and entertainment."
Pros: "Short trip 50 mins"
Pros: "First experience with Malaysian. Really good. On time both boarding and take off. Food to my liking, perhaps spicy to others. Crew were polite and did their job well. Over all good and service and experience more than expected."
Cons: "Was looking forward to see and experience new KLIA. Had heard about it, perhaps, 10-15 years back. Not that great, bit crampy. Open seating near gates is current style. Toilets are bad, truly Asian!"

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

Reliable partner. I am sure I will get to my destination in time. Best airline - spacious leg room, good entertainment are used between Addis and shorter distances. Worst airline carriages - shorter leg rooms, torn seats, entertainment systems not working are placed between Addis and Dulles (very long routes).

Good and efficient service. Food was quite poor though. And my seat hadn't been cleaned from previous flight (pockets still full of gargbage). Flight entertainment had a good screen, but audio with earplugs was terrible.

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Staff behavior & regular check on entertainment system as my screen was not working in 9 hr long journey"
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: "Super confortable"
Pros: "Crew is friendly."
Cons: "The plane is old, tatty and dirty. There is no entertainment. The airport transfer is very very shoddy."
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: "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"
Cons: "2 separate incidents. One, a fight between passengers at ththe check in desk that spilled over before staff could resolve incident. Then at security, after immigration, no cues. Minimal staff overseeing the process. No organization. Early"
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)"
Cons: "The entire flight was great!"
Pros: "The crew was professional yet very friendly. Everything was great. Enjoyed my trip"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Everything was on time, high quality, and enjoyable"
Cons: "There was a fight on the llane but it was because a passenger with mental issues was provoked by a couple so ahe beat up the wife. This was not caused by ET and crew at all, but they stopped it."
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."
Pros: "The quality of the planes"
Cons: "The food"
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: "nothing was exceptional good."
Cons: "luggage did not arrive. airport services were not good."
Cons: "Besides that the flight was 4 hours delayed and the staff gave different information then the screen, customer service was non existant. There seems to be no structure or system. Gate change was not announced. Staff was not clear or direct about status of the flight. I have had several flights with EA and most have been completely disappointing and frustrating. Forget trying to call anyone, it took me 4 days of non stop calls to connect with someone to change my flight date. Then once connected the credit card system was apparently down and they could not charge my fee. I had to contact the US office while I was in Africa in order to get anything done, ridiculous. They over charged me and would not honor the fees that were quoted on the phone and via email but the head office. Dishonest and no concern for the inconvenience to their customers. This airline would be the last choice, highly not recommended."
Pros: "The food was amazing and the plane is more comfortable and you can relax."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Did not provide special meal although I called ahead to request it."
Cons: "flight was 6 hours delayed"
Cons: "The security line was very long and one security monitor check person was holding up the line - taking her time. Even the othe security people at the gate were trying to push her along. Most of the people getting on this flight had a short layover time. Escape ially with the previous flight being late."
Pros: "food and beer were fine"
Cons: "4 flights ,4 delays. poor customer service . every things is very slow ."
Cons: "flight got delayed"
Pros: "Crew members were friendly, movie selection was good, food was nice as well"
Cons: "When checking in I asked if I'd need to collect my bags and recheck them for another flight. I was assured theyd make it all the way to my destination and I wouldn't need to re-check it. He was wrong and now I'm trying to find my lost bag."
Pros: "Again, the cabin crew where all very nice."
Cons: "Seating space was very tight on this plane."
Pros: "Great prices, and helpful staff"
Cons: "The food was mediocre, almost poor."
Pros: "The food. And the on board entertainment. Staff was also nice but a little bit sloppy and slow."
Cons: "."
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"
Cons: "- terrible food and no snacks provided - Crew was inattentive and did not monitor passengers e.g. standing when seatbelt light is on - bathrooms were rarely cleaned on 18 hour flight - poor air circulation"
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: "Ethiopia Airport is ruff. Needs bathrooms renovated and more places for waiting for flights the smoking lounge can be smelled through the hole airport"
Pros: "The inflight music (tons of awesome Ethiopian music, from jazz to pop) and solid Ethiopian beer."
Cons: "The boarding process was cumbersome but I think that's because of the airport not the airline."
Pros: "Boarding was okay and crew were friendly"
Cons: "extremely old airplane, mediocre food, almost non-existent in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "No delays The food on board was good. The drinks were fine My luggage was safe"
Cons: "The basement waiting area at the Addis Ababa airport was very cold and the toilets were dirty and smelly as well The crew were unfriendly and unreasonable the time of alighting"
Pros: "EVERY THING WAS ON TIME"
Cons: "FOOD NOT GOOD"
Cons: "Other travelers kept walking through our aisle, which was not an aisle. Therefore I was constantly getting bumped in the middle of the night waking me up. This area needs to be roped off to make other passengers walk around as to not disturb people sitting in that row. I arrived at my destination completely exhausted due to lack of sleep. Ethiopian Air provides horrible service."
