Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Great crew! Excellent business class suite"
Cons: "Didn’t even take off!"
Pros: "There are very friendly"
Cons: "Just continue the better services"
Cons: "They do not understand the word priority at Doha airport. Business class passengers boarded last."
Cons: "We were told to board, but then kept in another area close on 1 hour before we could get on the plane and this area had no bathroom facilities. The spread of seating on the plane made no sense with many open seats but also many squashed rows of people. The crew was visibly tired and irritated, they also ran out of a few catering items. It seemed as if last minute, a few different flights were combined into this one which lowered the quality."
Pros: "Food and leg room"
Cons: "All was fine"
Pros: "Yes very"
Cons: "The vegetarian option for breakfast was a stale waffle with apple compote. Inedible."
Pros: "Food selection. However, the snacks need to be readily available on long flights."
Cons: "Entertainment is lacking behind other international carriers"
Pros: "Excellent-18 hour flight but Qatar really looks after you. Crew amazing and food is pretty good."
Cons: "Just had a hard time finding flight attendants. Every time I went to the back of the plane, half a dozen of them were sitting around and chatting it up. Felt guilty for asking for water. Not the service that I expected from Qatar Airways. All 4 flights were a struggle to get proper service."
Pros: "I had a family emergency and couldn’t go. I wasn’t allowed to switch my flight or change it. Lots of money spent with nothing in return. Unfortunte."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "It seems the major airlines use older aircraft when the destination of the flight is a third world country(or Africa). The seats aren't as comfortable and the entertainment system (screens) are not as good as a Qatar and Europe bound flights."
Pros: "The flights attendants were very helpful and polite. What I enjoyed the most was the level of comfort I had. I was able to sleep for almost the entire flight. That's why it felt like it wasn't even a long flight."
Cons: "We did leave a little late but it was out of the control of the pilots and flights attendants."
Pros: "There was adequate seat room. The device was good."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."

Cons: "The breakfast options could have been better, but I was fed and happy, and the flight attendant was kind enough to bring me green tea when it wasn’t readily available on the cart."
Cons: "Display showed TV news, not boarding Info. Boarding Zones were announced only once, if you missed it stuck in security you have no way of finding out."

Cons: "Lost baggage maybe in Rome airport Conbecting flight qatar to vueling was worst"
Pros: "Cabin crew service is excellent. Food is very nice. Safe travel."

Cons: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Seat to LA was broken"
Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "When the flight is changed by airline for their convenience, they would have given preferential treatment to the passengers involved. We had to bare the cost of food and make us comfortable on our own due to the delay in transit."
Pros: "The crew aboard the flight were kind and thoughtful and definitely oriented toward service."
Cons: "The security process at the gate was really disorderly. Perhaps it is because it is a new and extra step required by the US but it was definitely not efficiently handled."
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "The friendliness of the staff from check in to arrival!"
Pros: "I freceuntly fly between the US and South Africa and only fly via Qatar Airways, and every experience thus far has been great. The food is good quality, friendly crew and I would recommend it to anyone."

Pros: "طيران ممتاز"
Pros: "Complimentary upgrade to business class."
Cons: "...as mentioned, I don't have the pleasure of rating this flight because of the boarding delays and missing the flight. Very disappointing."
Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"
Pros: "Service of air stewards very friendly and polite"
Cons: "This goes for Qatarfigjta from harare to Doha and Doha to Washington DC and back. I am not going to give individual report on each one. Food - my daughter could barely eat anything and the vegetarian meals were stone cold most of time. It was hard to eat at Qatar airport because not only is the food terrible (Burger King and bad Asian food) but outrageously expensive. Our media system did not work for one leg. ** way to many ads on your media system. Every time you watch a new TV episode, you have to sit through 5-6 ads for stuff that is not interesting and the same each time. ** plane info on media system keeps reverting to Arabic even when English is indicated as preferred la gauge. We had to place our iPads in checked luggage for flights from harare to USA as we went through Qatar. *** I asked for quiet seats and was given seats near kitchen and toilet even though I booked in hours in advance. One leg had my ten year old daughter and I in different rows even though I checked in 4-5 hours in advance Of flight . ** staff moved my hand luggage without my permission and without informing me - it was stressful trying to find it."
Pros: "Excellent experience overall, the food was decent, the seats were comfortable and had enough space for me at 6ft tall, the staff were very friendly and helpful, entertainment selection was good with plenty of new movies out. I had no problems with my layover. The baggage allowance was great as I had extra luggage from my trip. I'm very happy with their customer service, the day before my first flight I received a phone call from Qatar's customer service saying that due to delays I wouldn't be able to make my connecting flight to Edinburgh so they would like to book me on another flight instead of me having to wait 24 hours in Doha. I was thoroughly impressed with this service."
Cons: "I did not have wifi available from Doha-Johannesburg"
Pros: "Their food and crew was good."
Cons: "Seats are very small now and the entainment system was all messed up that day for the whole plane. We were trying to watch something else and system was playing something else."
Pros: "After hearing our complaint, the Transfer desk staff was friendly and helpful and solved the situation in our favour. We"
Cons: "Once we landed in Doha to board omthe connecting flight, ground staff was waiting right outside the hate to let us know that our flight was overbooked. We were then informed that we were put on the following flight arriving after midnight at our destination. Our compensation was going to be 250 USD and a free entry to the lounge. What a way to start our holidays."
Cons: "Engine problem. Everybody off of aircraft after sitting in it 3 hours!. No airline representitives inside airport to help. Slept in airport with various ppl from qatar popping up and giving untrue information"
Cons: "On the second leg, my first choice option was not available. Instead I was offered what appeared to be a lurid pink yogurt, coupled with fluorescent orange 'juice', together with the Indian vegetarian option. The accompanying 'muffin' appeared to consist of the following ingredients: flour, oil. Suffers from the "African flight's don't matter" syndrome when it comes to level of staff and entertainment. I was expecting better from Qatar - back to Emirates I go!"
Cons: "The crew have very strong accent which makes difficult to understand them, but they are very nice and helpful"
Pros: "The plane was wel kept and crew was very pleasant. Food was good and service was best I have had in economy class."
Cons: "Only complaint is crew would wake you for very frequent snacks and meals . Minor deal. Crew was great"
Pros: "Great crews, excellent airplanes, wonderful in transit experince."
Cons: "In flight coach meals were average."
Pros: "On time departure, friendly crew. Comfortable seats for economy class, plenty of entertainment options. A pleasant experience"
Cons: "The food was okay. The hot wrap/calzone served first was not very tasteful. The breakfast/brunch was better. Not much to dislike overall."
Pros: "Again on time and effortless boarding made the overall experience a good one."
Cons: "Our suitcase was damaged...still in the process of trying to get it fixed. Hopefully it will be done soon. I will then update this report. Could maybe clean the toilets as it did become a bit messy."
Cons: "Check in crew in Lahore ganged up against me and wanted to extort £200 for taking me laptop on board along with my hand carry. No where in the world has an airline ever asked me for this, and I fly a fair bit. Since I didn't allow them to extort me, they forced me to throw away my brand new Delsey hand carry at the airport. I had no cover as they threatened to if load my luggage and not let me fly home. Not a 5 start airline from any angle. Will never use Qatar again!!! This was my first and last flight with them."
Pros: "The service from the crew was amazing"
Cons: "The food was not bad compared to some air lines"
Cons: "Arrival in Johannesburg was a nightmare due to queues at immigration - I nearly missed my connecting flight. This was not the fault of Quatar airlines but needs to be taken up with the authorities at OT Airport in Johannesburg"
Pros: "The staff were welcoming and friendly. Their customer care is second to none. The food is excellent and i ate throughout my flight."
Cons: "The comfort was a bit below my expectations. Sitting on the seats along the isle was uncomfortable as they are closely placed. There is no enough room to move and to lean sideways when one wants to sleep. My tv was not working. The touch screen was not responding. However the friendly flight attendants shifted me to a vacant seat where the tv was working. The movie selection was limited. There were no documentaries about wildlife. Sport was also missing. We also need some news channels like Aljazeera, CNN & BBC so that we keep updated on issues happening throughout the world. This is very important especially to people like me who traveled long distances from South Africa to Los Angeles USA."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "It was okay"
Pros: "Yes comfortable flight"
Cons: "Toilets to be checked for cleanliness more frequently."
Pros: "Noce ride. Cabin crew was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Not much. Maybe better food. We asked for low fat option. They served bread. If they knew food better they knew carbs equals fat. Overall it was a good flight"
Pros: "It was comfortable flight and most importantly, our family was finally seated together in our last flight EK 420. The crew were attentive to us."
Cons: "The entertainment shows could be better as it was limited"
Cons: "Too much children ob the plain and they are crying"
Pros: "The stewardess were lovely."
Cons: "The refreshments"
Pros: "The Seats are very Comfortable"
Cons: "Flight lest 2 hours late. Didn’t have my choice of meal. Cabin crew very inattentive. Worst flight ever with Emirates in business class"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "I wished I was in business class..."
Pros: "Great service and attitudes by staff."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "South African airlines allowed me to reserve a seat. But Emirates didn't have it in the system when I checked in."
Cons: "Because my husband and I couldn't complete the online check in, we ended up sitting on different ends of the plane."
Pros: "I love everything about Emirates."
Pros: "Nice flight sttendents"
Cons: "Seats too small"
Pros: "I liked the cooperation of the crew."
Cons: "There's no specific reason to dislike, but 1 thing that they changed my schedule now,"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The chicken option dish was overdone."
Pros: "Efficient and good actually good for airline food"
Cons: "Electronic equipment a bit out dated and below standard"
Pros: "Amenities - ear plugs and basic things are good. Dint see this in other flights till now in economy. Good movies collection."
Cons: "Attendants were negligent. Asked for water many times, but didn't get any response. They were busy chit chatting. Internet - only 20 mb , that too for 2 hours continuous. Food was not that good. And only 2 meals for 14 hr flight!!"
Pros: "Booked a window seat and luckily the middle seat wasn’t taken. I was able to fade in and out of sleep ... much needed!"
Cons: "Wish I could afford to upgrade for a proper sleep!"
Pros: "Great service from flight attendants. Fast professional and courteous. The flight wasn’t full so there was plenty of room to move around."
Cons: "Baggage retrieval process is slower than normal. The airplane food was well, airplane food bland low quality."
Cons: "one of the Lady crew member was very rude. When i asked her child meal she made a very bad face and told me that u should have booked online. I explained her i tried but couldnt book coz of may be cheap fare category. It was quite embarrassing for me :("
Pros: "Good leg room"
Cons: "For an 8 hour flight - we were given a sandwich and breakfast. Expected to be served dinner and breakfast given the time."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, food was good and entertainment great. Space between front row seats in economy class was good."
Cons: "all good."
Pros: "Service, food, beverages and entertainment are good with Emirates. Also boarding procedures are good."
Cons: "Seats in Emirates keep getting smaller"
Pros: "The flight from Johannesburg to Dubai on an Airbus A380 was the best , the return was on the 777ER it's a bit older avoid it if you can, I prefer the a380 it's roomy, more comfortable and modern, the food was good, the cabin crew very helpful and friendly and both flights were on time. I'll be flying only Emirates from now on"
Cons: "Just the coffee was terrible lol,"
Pros: "After our trip from Cape Town to Dubai with Emirates which was not that great we where pleasantly surprised when we where bumped up to business class from Dubai to Bangkok. We did not expect this. Although we did not take advantage of all the extras business class has to offer we had a great nights sleep and the breakfast was superb. The cabin crew was excellent all the time. Thank you Emirates."
Pros: "Almost everything!"
Cons: "Couldn’t find anything to really complain about other then had to go and ask one of the stewards to get the drink I asked for that hadn’t come."
Pros: "Food ,seat,everything was just great"
Pros: "E v e r y t h i n g ..... I understand now why they are the number ONE airlines in service. We travel enough to see the BIG difference. Thumbs up. Please don't change !!!!"
Cons: "I was scheduled to leave Accra yesterday at 5:50pm. The flight was unexpectedly cancelled and the stranded passengers like myself were corralled to a nearby hotel. The flight has since been rescheduled several times today and settled to finally leave at midnight this evening. I missed my connection but it has also been rescheduled, but I doubt I will make it. Emirates has left me stranded. It's ridiculous how they failed to keep us accurately informed."
Cons: "We had several friends who made the same trip on other airlines and were not hassled about visas. We had all of the documentation that we were told to have by our friends and by travel agents... Emirates did not accept this and did not let us travel and refused to refund or change our tickets. Disappointment does not even begin to describe the emotion of losing this once in a lifetime opportunity."
Pros: "Every thing looks perfect, but since Emirates want to go one step further, then they should cosider the feet rest"
Cons: "Crammed, staff poor"
Pros: "They still catch my attention, and while traveling with them I continue to enjoy this airline."
Cons: "As per my Oslo - Dubai review (read there for more details), they cancelled my flight, put me on a flight a day later, and then left me with the bill and the inconvenience. This was the connector out of Dubai and back to Johannesburg. I've flown with them many times and I've picked up one or two small cut backs they've made like no hot towel when you get onboard, only before your arrival, and the meal seems a little more slimmed down (but still pretty tasty), They used have one or two extras which they've now taken away. Not sure why?"
Pros: "Emirates still remains one of the leaders in hte business"
Cons: "The crew was unwilling to do their job. I sat in the window seat and the crew member assigned to us wasn't even willing to pass me drinks or food leaving the task to the people sitting next to me or to me overly stretching to get to the tray. She never smiled, talked nor look at us. Not really a kind service I would say. Never had such a odd experience, usually people doing that job have much more attention to these type of details"
Cons: "Rude and racist cabin crew!"
Pros: "The crew member was excellent,she went all out to make my journey easy and comfortable.I have sent an email to her superior,please use her as an example.if all attendants can serve and see to passengers like her will be beneficial for emirates"
Pros: "I felt that the crew kind of forgot about us; there were lots of trolleys going by with drinks but each presumed that we had been served. I also felt that the crew in this section weren't friendly. I know it was an extremely busy flight but there wasn't much eye contact with the some of the crew, I felt that the stewards (men) were the least friendly."
Cons: "The food was bland and boring but i do like having real knives and forks. The white wine choice wasnt good. The crew didn't seem that familiar with the types on offer, ie savignon blanc, chardonnay etc. They just handed you the wine and hoped it would be ok. I felt for such a long flight the crew could have announced that if anyone would like extra snax or drinks then feel free to call a member of the crew or even go to the kitchen and ask. Wifi was offered on the flight but it wasn't explained how to use it so I didn't have this facility as I couldn't connect! Once we asked it was explained but I still wasn't able to connect. Would be helpful if this could be explained / announced to the passengers."
Pros: "Friendly staff awesome planes wonderful experince"
Cons: "Service was a bit slow. Drinks and food took quite sometime to arrive."
Pros: "On time Excellent environment"
Pros: "It was a smooth flight"
Cons: "It was ok"
Pros: "The food was delicious, and I received the special meal I had requested with no problem. Again, great selection of TV shows and movies."
Cons: "The crew seemed a bit put off, just not very friendly. Maybe something had happened that put them all in a bad mood I'm not sure. Despite this they did help people without complaint, but you could tell they didn't want to be there. Again on this flight the TVs were an old model that was difficult to use, you had to push really hard and finagle your finger to get it to read what you were pressing."
Pros: "The seats were good, more reclining than Etihad, Luftansa and United airlines and a good leg space, although I'm 5'4. Food was good and plentiful."
Cons: "Cleaniness was really bad. There was a puddle of water in the washroom and even after informing the crew twice noone cleaned it."
Pros: "Granted I was tired after being in transit for 24 hours, but this final of 4 long-haul flights was a real bummer compared to the other flights. Boeing 777 packed to 100% capacity."
Cons: "Really cramped and squished compared to other flights. Toilets at DXB were filthy (I searched around for the cleanest, which was still disgusting), with the cleaning attendant standing around in the restroom doing nothing. Duty Free shops really expensive compared to European airports. Meal on board (breakfast) was really terrible (and that taking into account that airline breakfast is always bad), really the worst I've ever had on a plane, even the Croissant was chewy and very dry. Emirates has become a massive sausage machine people-mover. It has loss its finesse and exceptional service."
Pros: "The staff were wonderful and efficient. The toilets were clean and the food was much better than my first flight with emirates although the portions were small on the main meal with only four spinach ravioli offered in a tomato sauce."
Cons: "Passengers do not fit on to their seats and overflow into the space you are occupying which is so tiny as it is. There is not enough room to even reach down to pick something up if you drop it. Overhead lockers are full. I think planes either need to be redesigned with sleeping compartments (such as the second class compartments the trains have) for overnight flights or seats need to be slightly larger to make up for the fact most people are larger today."
Cons: "THe Hostess was not attentive and had to ask for things a few times. No goody basket was given although some pax did get it."
Pros: "On time Large LCD in each seat back They kept the public announcements to a minimum"
Cons: "It took asking 5 crew members and 2 hours to fix one of our screens that wasn't working. Apparently there were other displays that did not work either so they reset everybody's LCDs. The food was bland"
Cons: "Food wasn't that great. They ran out of choices"
Pros: "Food was good, crew was excellent"
Cons: "Entertaintment system hardly worked.Long response time, frequent freeze-up, touted live news but none available. Seats were hard, and very uncomfortable to sit or relax."
Pros: "The crew were nice enough. However, I thought it was strange that the flight attendant woke up the guy next to me to see if he wanted to eat, which he didn’t."
Cons: "Checking in was bad. We had difficulty with the agent, who said that we needed to wrap our plastic tubs. We have flown other airlines using these same tubs for 15 years. After our minor altercation, the food on the two legs from Dammam and then on to Atlanta was very bad. I am not very picky with food and like just about anything. However, I was unable to eat the food served in 2 out of 3 meals. My time on Frankfurt was also not very pleasant. I will most likely try to avoid Lufthansa in the future."
Cons: "50 min. delay for absolutely nothing. No proper gate available. Only one bus had to serve all passengers from terminal to aircraft. Lufthansa should not operate as a budget airline."
Pros: "Everything was great thanks"
Cons: "Perfect trip"
Pros: "Smooth and easy flight"
Cons: "Food and drinks served late"
Pros: "The crew was awesome, super funny, excited, and helpful."
Cons: "The seat was incredibly uncomfortable."
Pros: "The confort and quality of Lufthansa is excellent!"
Pros: "nothing was good"
Cons: "Very rude and I think they are a group of racists."
Pros: "Nothing, the crew was terrible with very bad attitude, the food is very bad and the seats and bathrooms were awful."
Cons: "Every thing should be replaced starting with the crew."
Cons: "Perdieron nuestras maletas, de prácticamente todos los pasajeros."
Cons: "Flight from dc to Frankfurt was delayed 4 hours. Flight from Frankfurt to Amman was cancelled and rebooked for the next morning."
Pros: "Good. Thank you."
Cons: "No complaints. Good vegan food."
Cons: "I was in the middle seat and my neighbor was a mentally challenged person who should not have travelled. She annoyed me the whole trip. Movie selection was very disappointing."
Pros: "The food and attention of personal crew"
Cons: "Delays in the itineraries and the entertainment system did not work well"
Pros: "Lufthansa is always high quality"
Cons: "I dislike how one must stow the entertainment system so early before landing"
Pros: "No problems, it was a quick and easy flight. Crew was great."
Cons: "No entertainment (due to short flight). As with all airlines, economy is incredibly cramped."
Cons: "Boarding process was a bit unorganized"
Pros: "The service was outstanding!"
Cons: "Someone stole my phone charger :("
Pros: "It was totally bad experience due to cancellations of the flights which I already booked to SJC airport in CA. The first confirmed Lufthansa flights No: LH 1305/ LH 488 ISTANBUL to SAN JOSE via FRANKFURT were cancelled. Then my family in USA contacted the airline and agreed about FLIGHT TK 005 / UA 1883: IST-ORD-SJC. At the checking counter in Atatürk Airport I got the last shock of being Lufthansa didn’t issue a ticket for the flight and the time was running fast and l had no contact neither with my family nor anybody else at the airport therefore i had to purchase a ticket to SFO via Frankfurt. In another word it was very bad experience."
Pros: "Friendly service, good food."
Cons: "A bit too cold."
Pros: "Only an hour and a half but perfect service and even a nice meal. Because of the delay there were a lot of questions to the crew but they managed to keep travelers calm and happy."
Cons: "Flight was delayed but that had nothing to with the crew and the service."
Cons: "Flight delays"
Pros: "entertainment options were great"
Cons: "rushed from connecting flight and then had to go through passport security check point"
Cons: "Comfort was good because flight was not full and I didn't have someone sitting next to me. Otherwise the seats are too cramped and crowded in Economy. Also had to call to find out if I had to pay for seat assignment. Couldn't find information on website. Had difficulty finding correct phone number and getting through to customer service."
Pros: "Food was good. The entertainment was better as long as the system wasn’t locking up. Fairly clean plain"
Cons: "Water was spilled on me by flight attendant. Luggage was left in Frankfort. Did not have clothes or medications, or daily necessities. Must wait 1 1/2 days to get luggage"
Pros: "The entertainment options were great, The plane was very clean and the bathrooms was HUGE!"
Cons: "uncomfortable seat, off set from the seat in front of me so my entertainment screen was at an odd angle to watch. Food was ok but they had a sauce on the chicken that was not very appetizing. It actually made my wife sick and lets just say she did not keep her dinner. Also, I asked for a scotch after take off and it was a small shot and after dinner I asked for another and it was just a whisper. It did not even cover one ice cube. It would have been nice to get at least a full shot."
Pros: "Crew was excellent. Joseph was great!"
Cons: "Food needs to be improved!!!"
Pros: "Crew were marvelous. Thank you."
Cons: "Nothing. All was good."
Pros: "The crew was nice and boarding was efficient."
Cons: "Entertainment was dated and with few choices. Food was awful."
Cons: "The seats were absolutely uncomfortable"
Pros: "On time all the time"
Cons: "Food getting worse year after year."
Cons: "The on board entertainment sucks you need to upgrade"
Pros: "Flight was comfortable. Seats were spacious and leg room was really good. Crew were friendly and efficient. Entertainment was varied and extensive."
Cons: "Food was awful. Muslim meals were gross. Need to find a new vendor in Germany. Breakfast was very poor. We were starving when we got to Washington. No snacks were provided. I would prefer a seafood or vegetarian option. Bathroom were filthy. For such a long flight there has to be a backup for dirty bathrooms"
Cons: "The cabin got a little hot during the night and made it hard to be comfortable. Also, the seats lean pretty far back so I had little room in front of me when the person sitting in front of me leaned their seat all the way back."
Cons: "Not a thing"
Pros: "Every thing"
Cons: "Operation system"
Pros: "They had delicious little sandwiches for breakfast, and were amazingly efficient at getting out the snacks and coffee."
Pros: "We had nothing to complain about and much to be happy about. The seating in economy (seats 36A and 36C and an Airbus 330-300) was generous compared to other airlines we've flown recently (e.g., on a 777 with United on the way over, and that was "Economy PLUS!). The food was much better than the United flight, and really, it was almost too much. I'm home 14 hours after landing and I'm still not hungry. They were also very generous with the drinks and worked to keep us well hydrated with water and juices. The crew was very pleasant and accommodating. Overall, it was a great experience and I will certainly look to Lufthansa first for my next transatlantic flight."
Cons: "My one gripe was that it was very hard to hear the audio on the in-flight entertainment system. I even abandoned one movie I really wanted to see because I couldn't follow the dialogue. Also, I discovered late in the flight that the view screen pivoted and this would have helped in enjoying the videos more. Here's an idea for Lufthansa: how about adding "Tips" to somewhere in the Entertainment system to improve your seat, viewing, and other experiences. For instance, I wasn't aware that the head cushion on the seats were adjustable to better support your head. One last thing, on the entertainment system, it appears to be browser based, but sadly lacks a "Back" button equivalent."
Cons: "It was delayed by 9.5 hours!!!!!"
Pros: "process of online check-in - fully automated so just few clicks on link (without entering booking number etc) which I received by email and I was ready to go"
Cons: "bus in Frankfurt"
Pros: "Munich airport is convenient and boarding went smoothly"
Cons: "This was an SAA plane, not Lufthansa. I have only had excellent service on Lufthansa. This flight again did not have a functioning entertainment system. I asked for this to be addressed and the SAA crew ignored the request and in the morning looked surprised to find out that several of the TV monitors had not worked at anytime on the flight. Not impressed."
Pros: "The crew, food and entertainment were good."
Cons: "I could not even cross my leg. The coach seats are ridiculous and because of that, I will not book on the airline again. Sorry, coach seats should be an option for everyone, not just someone the size of a 9 year old. I'm only 5'2" and 120 lbs."
Pros: "Most of all."
Cons: "The headphone connection method. It is difficult to replace the headphone w/ your own because the connector is located deep in the headphone compartment and you cannot see it in easily. As far as you use the built-in headphones, no problem."
Pros: "The variety and ease of use of the entertainment"
Cons: "The boarding was not at all well organized. There were no instructions about what to have ready and the woman who checked our passports was rude."
Pros: "The boarding was smooth. The movies are ok."
Cons: "The seats are terribly not comfortable. I've been in many long flights with other carriers but these by far are the less comfortable seats ever. I tried in April the premium economy and the business class with the same carrier but still I'm disappointed and it doesn't seem that it will get better."
Pros: "COMFORT AND ENTERTAINMENT WAS BEST"
Cons: "BOARDING SLOW CREW A BIT RUDE"
Pros: "Nice crew, water waiting for me at my seat and other small amenities that made a big difference. Great entertainment system on board."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic."
Pros: "Seat had power supply. Also had own screen"
Cons: "Social distancing. Food. Movies. Toilette cleanness. Availability of hygiene products onboard."
Cons: "Flight was a little warm"
Pros: "Connection time"
Cons: "Aircraft comfort"
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "Business class is very basic. Flatbed seats, but they are side by side, like economy. So if you have a window or center seat, you have to climb over someone to get out to use the bathroom. Very annoying, especially for the person being climbed over."
Pros: "Timing and Food"
Cons: "Out of 50 international flights in the past 5 years, this is the first time on EGYPTAIR. They lost one piece of luggage."
Pros: "The flight was on time, the crew was fine"
Cons: "The business class lounge was closed, they gave us $25 per person voucher, but no one store in the airport wanted to accept them. There were not enough seats available when we were waiting for boarding. Business class entertainment needs significant improvement."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly"
Cons: "The airplane was too old and uncomfortable"
Pros: "Airplane crew were frendly and helpful."
Cons: "I hope to all aircrafts to think wisely about my opinion. Please let economic passenger go in to reach their seats from back to head, late let the business passengers enter to reach their seats to avoid bags traffic above each passenger seat. Thank you."
Cons: "The crew was horrible I will never take Egypt sort again. Flight attended spilled hot tea on me and didn’t even apologize, I acknowledge it was both our fault but at least he could of provided a napki g so I could dry off. Horrible I will never recommend this airline"

Cons: "Entertainment Luggage claim Food"
Cons: "Transit to jeddah in Cairo is a nightmare. Even if business flight"
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "The plane was old, the seats were uncomfortable with no adjustable headrest or flaps to hold your head from flopping.

Cons: "Signs are not very visable at airport"
Pros: "They were on time Greeting was nice Food OK (breakfast)"
Cons: "The time it took from the car to the airplane took more than 1 hour and 30 min. Totally unorganized check points with no crowed control or whatever. I think if they want more tourist in the future they have to work on that!"

Cons: "Very noisy ."

Cons: "They didn't give me a travel kit."
Pros: "no food no entertainment"

Pros: "The food was good."
Cons: "Too tight aircraft, noisy and not stable at the sky."
Pros: "Appreciate the breakfast that was served."
Cons: "Boarding process can be improved."
Cons: "The plane, supposed to take off at 6 pm crashed into another plane on the JFK tarmac around 7 pm. An hour later we were deplaned and then were uncoordinatedly brought to a shuttle... took 90 minutes to get transported to a hotel... that didn't have capacity for all... then another hotel... still no capacity for all... so I took an uber to another hotel on my own. It's 1 am before I get to my room and crash (no pun intended). Besides the incompetent organizational response in a crisis: The plane was not cleaned Dry -- no alcohol on board Food was meh. Looooooong 36 hours with Egyptair."
Pros: "Inexpensive fair."
Cons: "Little interaction with crew"
Pros: "Crew were professional, despite flight was almost fully booked. Food portion (i had beef meal) was very small (beef). Drinks are ok. Landing was very smooth."
Cons: "Egyptair online check-in failed to issue the boarding pass, just managed to change my seat. The same failure occurred on my way back to Cairo, and reasons are not clear!"
Cons: "the cancellation of my return flight right after we boarded the flight. Had to change the return date without compensation from the airline for the hotel and food during the extra days they forced us to stay. we then had to push the return flight forward, trying to find a direct flight and good timing."
Pros: "Boarding and take off are on time. Landing was super."
Cons: "Not applicable."
Pros: "The crew whas nice but smill od airplane whas very bad"
Cons: "Upgrade the airplanes"
Pros: "We had a 10 hour lay-over in Cairo and EgyptAIr shuttled us to an excellent hotel and provided lunch and dinner - all for free. This was most excellent and so much more pleasant than sitting at the airport!"
Cons: "If EgyptAir would distribute a little English sheet how the steps are, where to get the passports back (at the EgyptAir Counter in the main hall at the airport), which lines to go to (we didn't officially immigrate, but still had to go through immigration upon return, which wasn't clear). Maybe a word on legal boundaries of the status in Egypt - EgyptAir had the passport, can we go to the pyramids or not - would be useful, too."
Cons: "Close flight without care of me and they charge me extra fee to get a new booking"
Cons: "Time arrive late"
Cons: "One major safety concern, was that the take off safety briefing was still playing as we took off. On the flight back from Cairo the safety briefing first played in Arabic and then English. The English briefing only started once we were already in the air. If there had been an accident on takeoff, someone flying for the first time wouldn't know what to do or how to get out."
Pros: "Comfortable red-eye flight to Johannesburg. Food very good and plentiful. Plane spacious and not crammed."
Pros: "Nothing was good. Everything was horrible."
Cons: "Flight attendants are rude and nasty. They take forever to accommodate you. When you press the flight attendant button to be taken care of. They don't care at all. If you ask for help you're left unhelped."
Cons: "Old entertainment system, otherwise, everything else was fine"
Pros: "I did not board the flight to Chicago reservation was wrong (operated by Egypt air ) both airlines denied me I bought another ticket from Lufthansa for$660. I spent two days in hotels. I arrived Chicago Monday noon. I missed two days of work. Please I need refund for my money $837 My name :Mahmoud Helal 15705 brassie court #2s Orland park Il 60462"
Pros: "It is the first time ever..... I rated anything perfect but this time is an exception ...."
Cons: "Nothing.... ouch it hurts to say this"
Pros: "so, due to my nervousness and being upset so much so that I wanted to get off the plane, the crew let me sit in business next to a friend and the pilot and crew went to extreme lengths to make me feel safe and unafraid. The pilot answered all my questions and constantly checked that I was ok. Once we took off, despite cloudy rainy snowy skies, this turned out to be the best smoothest flight ever once it departed, and the pilot was probably the best ever I experienced on Egypt Air, and many other airlines actually. Shout out to a fantastic crew stewardess (Olfat Younis) and amazing pilot!! A really great experience"
Cons: "During pre-flight checks the plane had a technical problem that needed fixing just as about to taxi to runway, so had to sit and wait 2 hours for repair which made me extremely nervous and worried"
Pros: "The Crew was excellent and accommodating."
Cons: "Long flight ... could not sleep... Not your fault :) I'm very tall so the comfort for me was not as good as it could have been due to limited leg room. Please try to keep us in mind and /or try to get tall folks leg room seats. Thanks.. Happy security was good, but it was a bit slow."
Pros: "Everything about the Egypt Air flight from Munich to Cairo was great including outstanding service by the crew."
Pros: "Very friendly cabin crew."
Pros: "Great flight....enjoyed it thoroughly....."
Pros: "Super easy check in. Good air hosting staff."
Cons: "Same as ALWAYS - Beijing baggage pickup is an absolute joke. Takes forever and it is generally mayhem in the baggage hall. They really need to get ahold of this space and the behaviour of Chinese travelers."
Cons: "More comfortable seats."
Cons: "Better comfort and services"
Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "Their time."
Pros: "I enjoyed the services, the crew and the food and beverage"
Cons: "The WiFi services. I ordered the lite service for $4.95 and the 30 mb was finished in less that 10 minutes. Not sufficient"
Pros: "Crew On time"
Cons: "Very slow process for checking, only one person for business class and it took forver to finish"
Cons: "Flight delayed Baggage lost & didn’t receive upon arrival"
Pros: "E box movies , longer leg room"
Cons: "Nothing I love Etihad"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Having to wait 5-6 hours due to missed flight back to NY"
Pros: "Pleasant SYD - LHR flight with a decent amount of room"
Pros: "Food service and seats"
Pros: "Everything was fine, but"
Cons: "Frigid temps on board The snacks were sad"
Pros: "That me and my son had a extra seat each"
Cons: "Wasn't served any food at all. And I had to go and get my own water from the staff"
Cons: "5 hours flight took 8 hours"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "The food was tasteless"
Cons: "There was no organization for boarding!! My chicken was like a piece of tire with no flavor!"
Pros: "Staff are efficient."
Cons: "Abysmal experience on our return flight! # Abu Dhabi Airport is so outdated and an embarassment compared to the other Regional Airports # Boarding procedure still shambolic # A330 seems old and uncomfortable - even though it is a new plane # Cabin Crew so unfriendly and sour # Toilets again disgusting within 30 minutes after taking off # Food still shockingly disgusting # Onboard entertainment still inferior to Emirates/Qatar/etc."
Pros: "Few good stores to shop at the airport, could have been better"
Cons: "No accomodation was provided. I had over 15 hours of layover and no one had the courtesy to provide neither the airlines nor the online booking agent(site- Kayak)information on pre hotel booking. I have travelled through many other airlines who provide accomodation for long layovers without prebooking on arrival. It was a very unpleasant experience with the airlines. Upon asking at the service desk for accomodation the simply denied and informed about prebooking which I had no clue about. Thank you anyways. Hope someone else doesn’t suffer like this"
Pros: "All the crew was grate very kind they help every one on the plain"
Cons: "the food was not to good i do not like it you need batter kinds"
Pros: "Meals are served promptly and on a regular basis. Selection of entertainment is good but needs updating."
Cons: "Boarding was a chaos at the Abu Dhabi airport, they were just calling out for the Business Class and passengers who are disabled and those who are travelling with children to board first when everybody came to line up. Nobody from the ground staff even asked them to give way for those who are boarding first or announced what zone are they boarding next. Also, i used the mobile app to check in, i am definitely sure i chose an isle seat (you can see it on the seat map during online check in) but i was surprised to see that i got a window seat."
Pros: "Etihad gives you lots of food and makes sure you never go hungry. The Air hostesses were fairly helpful even thought it was the early hours of the morning and the entertainment was fairly diverse but could be better. Having USB ports to charge your phone and their devices is fantastic."
Cons: "The seats were small and very little leg room. It was not very comfortable and very hard to get some sleep considering it was an 11 hour flight overnight."
Pros: "We bought ticket from New York to Islamabd round trip ticket and fly on August 22nd. After changed plan in Abu Dhabi to Islamabad, there was rain in Islamabad and all flight diverted to Lahore, so our Etihad air plan diverted to Lahore too. once the weather cleared in few hours , all air line did fly back to Islamabad a 50 minutes flight but unfortunately Etihad air way force everyone out of airplane by force. They used police to beat up passenger very bad and drags them out. Then put all passenger in old Bus to Islamabad a 5 hours trip. One of worst air line in my life. We bought ticket for Islamabad not for Lahore. They should take us back to Islamabad after rain stop like other air line did but only Etihad air way did not fly back and beat all passenger by using police on them, it took us 34 hours to get home."
Cons: "Etihad air way should apologize to each passenger and Reimburse them 1/4 of the ticket. otherwise lot of people will give up this airline . 2nad their meal was very bad. bread was not fully cooked. they cooked only Hindy food. not every person is Hindu. It welcome to providr hindu food when travel india but when it travel to Pakistan or Bangladesh it should name it Hindu meal."
Pros: "Accurate. Take off was smooth. Crew were sooo kind. Boarding was fast. New computer was fantastic. New movies ."
Cons: "1. Seats were really narrow. 2. Although my first plane from Seoul to Abu Dhabi was for 10 hours but only one meal served and it was omlette with sausage And at the beginning a small toast sandwich served. This indeed very strange because everytime I flied with Etihad you serve 2 meals one of them is meat or chicken with rice. I was really starving until the next glight because when we left Incheon airport it was 12.55am and most restaurants were closed. Please try to solve this issue"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful , boarding was late but arrived in time."
Pros: "Comfort on such a long flight was much better than other airlines. Food was great"
Pros: "Nothing...at check-in I was made to pay for 10 kgs for having 1 kg over weight"

Pros: "All above"
Cons: "Liked everything"
Cons: "Faulty Seats. Had to change seats thrice. luckily, the flight was not that full. Seats were not reclining at all."
Cons: "Customer care"
Cons: "No legroom. Inattentive stewards."
Pros: "Etihad is the best airline on the planet. Certainly the best of the ME3."
Cons: "Child screaming for 12 hours straight. No action taken to resolve."
Pros: "Economy class is okay in terms of space set-up. The US immigration organization and process in Abu Dhabi is perfect. We save a lot of time when landing in Dulles airport (Washington DC)"
Cons: "I was surprised by the crew attitude; almost arrogant! First bad experience of this kind travelling with an airline from the Gulf :-("
Pros: "The crew are friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The seats are way too small and cramped."
Pros: "the crew was good, unlike NY-AUH flight where some crewmembers were arrogant bathrooms were kept clean"
Cons: "zone boarding should be smoother, but people still try to skip the line"
Pros: "new aircraft"
Cons: "Poor selection of beverages, poor selection of entertainment(same package 5 weeks after our outbound flight) service very average, attitude of attendants very average."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "They need better food"
Pros: "All ok."
Cons: "Seats seem pretty short. Only half my leg fits on them and I am not a tall person."
Cons: "Food not good. Just one type of food"
Pros: "the journey, staff and overall experience"
Cons: "there was short delays"
Cons: "Nothing not to like."
Pros: "The trip was late and the transite one left and they refused to componsate me neither by ticket nor money .. It was ahorrible trip i lost 4000 dollars for hotels and other ticket which is toooooo much"
Cons: "Staff not treating Indians properly but treating Caucasian like lords."
Cons: "The seat did not reclined. My wife was pregnant 6 months with twins and needed to recline the seat. I think I would reconsider booking with Etihad in the future."
Pros: "I wanted to cancel my flight ticket 2/3 days after buying it. I called vayama and they told me that it can't be canceled. I asked to reschedule the booking instead and they told me that rescheduling will cost me more than the price of the original ticket! Now I lost the money I paid! I will stop booking my flights through kayak going forward. I am not happy with the service and the policies do not make any sense. This was a waste. I am very disappointed. I had a serious personal reason to not to fly and nothing was taken in to consideration. I will pass this to all people I know."
Pros: "Nothing specific..."
Cons: "I know this sector is can be tough on the crew... But got a very routine service with not much eye contact... For my coffee was given one sugar/creamer... Before I could ask for another the steward moved away... Didnt bother to check if I am fine...., Also, they ran out of water around landing time :( Entertainment was not available until after 10 or 15 mins take off and cut 10 mins before landing... Felt like second class..."
Cons: "Etihad overbooked me along with more than a dozen other passengers on a 14-hour international flight. Apparently Etihad decides on who gets left behind. Etihad's "Transit Travelers" service is one of the WORST customer service desks I've ever been to. I waited in line for 2 hours. Passengers were urging to be served so they can make it to their connecting flights not knowing they have been already selected not to board those plains. Voices were raised and demands were made to speak to the supervisor. It was chaos. I made it to the agent shortly after the gate to my flight had opened. I was shocked by how the agent lacked empathy when he informed me I won't make it to the connecting flight because it had been overbooked. Not an apology or even sir! I was forced to be rerouted which stretches my 25-hour trip to 33 hours. Then the connecting flight gets delayed more than an hour resulting in missing the second connecting flight. Now my trip has become a 41-hour trip, I missed a day of work that's worth more than double the value of the voucher Etihad gave me and lost one day of unscheduled vacation. Etihad even damages my bag that had servived more than 10 flights. I will never fly Etihad and strongly recommend against flying with Etihad."
Cons: "The flight from Riyadh ALWAYS leaves late. Arabs have so sense of punctuality."
