I'll be flying only Emirates from now on"

Pros: "Great hospitality from the crew and quality plane facilities."
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?"
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"

Cons: "Service was a bit slow. Drinks and food took quite sometime to arrive."
Pros: "The service was excellent good legroom for flying economy."
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: "We asked for an imodium and were deplaned and forced to pay $500 as a fine for being ill."
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: "All the services were excellent"
Cons: "Another meal option was not available when it was my turn."
Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "food could have been better."

Pros: "I am very happy - always good service, timely and pleasant staff."
Cons: "n/a"
Pros: "The food was excellent fresh and plentiful. The bathrooms were very clean"
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "After bus arrived at steps kept on it 20 mins. 2 more buses arrived in this time. Still wait. Then let out all at once. Massive queues to board. Poeple not dressed for this. Poor babies crying Maybe 15 mins waiting in 2am cold on tarmac."
Cons: "Worst customer service."
Pros: "It was on time and we got there safely, otherwise not memorable in any way."
Cons: "The staff...not very outgoing....they clearly wish that they were somewhere else."
Cons: "Everything"
Cons: "The people at the counter for boarding were not really friendly. the plane was dirty and in my opinion old. It made a lot of noice."
Pros: "I liked personal, food and comfortable"
Pros: "Turkish airlines have always been perfect for me. This was yet another fulfilling experience with the services, the food and other stuff being extremely satisfying."
Pros: "Generally efficient and comfortable."
Cons: "Leg room seemed a bit tight and the food didn't seem fresh."
Pros: "Friendly crew, on time, spacious seats, extra bus to gate for business travelers, outstanding lounge in Istanbul; overall great experience"
Cons: "The gate from Boston to Cairo in Istanbul is too far away. My plane left Boston one hour late so I had only about 50 mn to run from gate 200 to gate 712. Also in Boston the called all the family with children from business AND from economy to board first the we the Business we started to boarded after which was one hour after boarding time. That was REDICULOUS. Turkish Airline team was so slow and unprofessional unlike the team in Istanbul. But on the plane the service and food was excellent. Mervat Ali"
Cons: "Passport control"
Pros: "the food is good - staff are generally friendly but not great with English if you have a problem"
Cons: "Why does Turkish Air boarding always have to be so chaotic - pushing and shoving, etc. Why cant TK control their business class space - people from economy always coming up for bathrooms when there are plenty in the back....."
Cons: "Food was dried out and tasteless"
Cons: "Short transit time. Very risky. Small seats."
Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "I used the prime lounge in Istanbul and when it was time to go, I was able to practically walk on the plane without any wait. The seats were comfy and didn't have a ton of legroom but it wasn't bad. The staff we're friendly and helpful. The in-flight entertainment had a pretty impressive selection and had one of the best-designed interfaces I've seen so far (and I've ridden a variety of airlines). Last and most important, the food was hands down the BEST I've had on a plane. Turkish is killing it, they're my new go-to airline!"
Cons: "I really can't complain about anything, even if I try! Maybe the touch screen sensitivity on the entertainment console seemed a little off, but that's just nitpicking"
Pros: "Employees were very helpful. Service was great."
Cons: "Toward the end of the flight it was very hot. I didn't like that there were no AC controls at your seat"
Cons: "I missed my first night of a booked hotel and activities, and I wasn't refunded for all of it."
Pros: "The services on the plane were fantastic. We were offered drinks right after take-off and entertainment was available immediately upon boarding. The food was delicious and plentiful. Drinks were offered several times throughout the flight which was not my experience with a different airline for my return flight. The choices of entertainment were current and of a good variety. Great flying experience."
Cons: "It was too cramped!"
Pros: "same as above"
Cons: "same as above"
Pros: "The crew, as usual on Turkish airlines, was wonderful. Excellent service and patience.Warmly recommend Turkish Airlines."
Cons: "The flight itself was delayed, the boarding was a disaster waiting an hour in a closed off area with little air-conditioning and zero amenities, the plane uncomfortable and the entertainment system was a joke. To be honest I was surprised because I enjoy flying Turkish, it's an excellent airline with great service. This flight was a disaster"
Cons: "Leg space a nighrmare!! Was uncomfortable for all the 13 hrs of the flight. Terrible experience"
Pros: "It was a 12 or 13 hour flight and except for sitting too much we were never uncomfortable. The service level made me think we were back in the 80's. Hot towels, attentive service, tons of food and free drinks. There was actually one meal that we would have eaten even if it wasn't on a plane. They gave out full size blankets and pretty fluffy pillows. (I bring our own anymore, because you never know if you will get one on most airlines, and if you do they're usually useless). Their entertainment system was amazing. We caught up on all the recently released movies that we've wanted to see for FREE! If only Netflix had this quality of movie offerings. They had fresh flowers in the huge bathrooms. It's that type of attention to detail you just really don't see anymore."
Cons: "Can't think of a thing that could actually be changed."
Pros: "Boarding employees were so polit The flight was on time"
Cons: "Entertainment were poor"
Pros: "*Lots of legroom *They still serve food! *Luggage fee extortion not as egregious as other airlines. *Nice entertainment system. Put simply: Turkish airlines is what most airlines USED TO be like about 25 years ago."
Cons: "*Boarding is usually a bit disorganized with people always trying to switch seats. *If you are flying from Germany to Turkey, get on early. The overhead luggage compartments fill up fast. *This is more of a cultural thing: but it is annoying that passengers routinely get up and start grabbing their bags before the aircraft has even retracted the speed brakes upon landing..."
Pros: "Service when it was done"
Cons: "Infrequent service Crowded Entertainment system bad"
Pros: "Crew is very friendly. The plan is very clean and designed well and fashioned. The entertainer movie is good but the not all the shows."
Cons: "The air condition of the two planes I used was very bad. There is only one type of food for breakfast. There is no much more to watch besides movies; no sitcoms or decomntries found"
Cons: "The seats on the second flight were smaller and we had no flight console (no movies, usb charge..)"
Pros: "NOTHING, NOTHING, NOTHING, NOTHING, NOTHING, NOTHING, NOTHING AND NOTHING!!!!!"
Cons: "The company I work for has change our travel policies. We are to avoid any connections to and from Turkey. I was not able to catch this flight. I called to see if I could receive a voucher or refund on my unused return trip, due to the military coup. I was told NO! This country should be avoided during this time."
Cons: "I did not like the kind of airplain it is not like the plain it gose to uorp or usa. Please try to imrove and bring good airplain. I flyed from dammam and bahrain and the ace of the plain for differnte time it was not good."
Pros: "Waiting half and one hours before fly out from airport, because the fly road is busy for landing."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "boarding was horrible of both legs of my Turkish Airline. The Istanbul Airport is a total disaster and dysfunctional. Experience delays in both baggage and flights."
Cons: "There was a gate change shortly before boarding but it wasn't ever announced on the loudspeaker. I was sitting at the original gate and by sheer lucK happened to get up and walk past the departures info screens only to see that my flight was listed at a totally different gate. I feel I could've easily missed my flight even though I was sitting right there at the gate that had been listed when I first arrived to the airport."
Pros: "food, entertainment"
Cons: "too small legroom, waiting for the boarding in the Airport was crowded"
Pros: "Entertainment, comfort"
Cons: "Wireless not working, some of the fight staff seemed like thry didn't want to be there"
Cons: "Waiting time was too long between 2 flights"
Pros: "Plane itself was nice with very comfortable seats. Good selection of movies and shows to watch in flight."
Cons: "For a flight from IST-NPL they only had beef options for food. Nepal is a Hindu country and majority of people on the flight were Hindu. It's very inconsiderate for them to bit have planned for more non beef food options. I turned on the service button 3 times within an hour. No one came. Separately I also asked 3 flight attendants for some water. None of them got me water! There were at least four parties with kids younger than 3 and a few older people. It would have been nice if boarding call was made to allow these people to board first so they could settle down camly, without stressing the kids and everyone else behind them!!"
Pros: "Food was great."
Cons: "Entertainment system didn't work on my seat or my entire row of seats."
Pros: "Friendly Staff, great service, amazing food, loved the fresh flowers and hand cream in the bathrooms, was very happy about the travel package that was given to passengers, comfortable seats"
Cons: "Was reseated due to another demanding passenger, bathrooms were dirty after half of the journey"
Pros: "Very little"
Cons: "Broken seat, TV only showing in black and white, ice cold and/or inedible globular food, air attendants with very little command of English"
Pros: "Everything else was good Crew was nice and helpful."
Cons: "A crew member at check in gave me stupid trouble about my computer being inside my carry on. That never happened to me before and it was really awful. No other airlines cares how I store my computer during the flight. He required it being outside the carry on, and I still don't understand why. After a while his colleague let me go with no problem. The seating at the seat had some built in ventilation system or something that took space from space for feet and that was uncomfortable especially in the long flight. That machine could be placed way better. For example on the bottom of the seat 28."

Staff were very nice and professional. 🙏. International/domestic recheck was very confusing

All and all it was an easy flight. We were in business class. Strangely, while we were offered some food which we did not want, we were never offered anything to drink including water. The boarding process was a bit chaotic. Everyone had to identify there bags at the plane as a safety precaution which was fine. But the communications about this was non existent. Israel has a very strict protocol for entry. There is an entry form that must be filled in and then, if everything is ok, you get an e-mail approval that you must show to the airline. Instead of asking for this they asked to see our “green passport” which is only a document to be used in Israel. Luckily, we had copies of ours. All of this is not significant. As someone that lives in Israel but love Egypt, I am so happy that we have direct flights now.

Pros: "The food was good."
Cons: "Too tight aircraft, noisy and not stable at the sky."
Cons: "I overpaid my flight by up to 50 per cent more than my fellow passengers yet they were allowed 2 bags each while I only got 1 . The flight attendants don't offer drinks except with meals . They took for ever to remove the trays after the meals that passengers were trying to take them out by themselves . They don't pass by with big bags to collect any garbage ."

Pros: "The flight attendants’ hospitality and meal service."
Cons: "Food ordinary"
Pros: "Inexpensive fair."
Cons: "Little interaction with crew"
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: "Great crew, members always welling to help"
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: "Lots of security checks with no solid standards"
Cons: "why do you have 3 people in 1 row and zero in another?"
Pros: "Time..... everything was on time no late ..flight take off on time with good security Processing"
Cons: "Nothing really"
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."

Cons: "No sweets were served in any meals. Not even a chocolate candy."
Pros: "I got 2 seats to myself, which was great"

Cons: "The flight left > 2 hours late from JFK to Abu Dhabi, and my connection was changed midair. Instead of changing it to the next flight, they changed it to a flight 16 hours later so I missed my entire day of meetings. The paid internet did not work inflight so I couldn't check my connection or receive emails. The crew was not friendly, and they also wouldn't give anyone any information about their connections during the flight, which resulted in ~80 people rushing the crew and the desk. It was very messy."

Cons: "Frigid temps on board The snacks were sad"

Cons: "Crew members did not care about anything, unorganized. actually tripped and fell into the aisle hit my shoulder on the arm rest of another passenger’s seat because of a crew members luggage was in the middle of the aisle and it was dark. Food was terrible. The in flight entertainment was lacking entertainment. Crew members told us we needed to hold our carry on’s, on our lap then to store it under the seat because other people have bigger bags. Even though I got to the seat first and was trying to get settled in. Crew members were eating and on their cellphones in the back the majority of the time. It was hard to get a cup of water. Flew from Chicago O’hare to Abu Dhabi."
Pros: "Staff are efficient."
Pros: "NOTHING!"
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: "Nice plane, good crew"
Cons: "The entire menu was southern Indian with very strong spices and awful taste. I can understand that there are a lot of Indians on the flight but Etihad should have options for non Indian dishes as only Indians would have a taste for what was served. Very bad experience for our entire family."

Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "No comments"
Pros: "Nothing was good"
Cons: "Air hostess were very rude. Her name is Iliana , none of them have name tags on. I guess that will he the first thing any passengers would expect. Food was not served as per the menu. They gave away whay ever they wish. To ask for water we had to request 4-5 times. The air hostess Iliana was bumping constanly into us, and does not even have courtesy of apologising. Because of her I could not even sleep for a second in the plane. Iliana is very racist. When multi cultural people are around, it a common sense that we have to talk in a language which is understandable by every one. She was speaking in the local language, and messing around with the fellow passengers for a small issue. She is definitely not fit as an air hostess, if she is there as a racist. there was another air hostess who as shouting at us to book business class if we need to order individually. A kid beside me was asking for an ice cream if we had a chance of purchasing it, like we do in domestic airlines. When I was requesting for the ice cream, she mentioned it thrice to book a ticket in business class. Rude absolutely very very rudeeeee. Untolerable service.....worst really worst service. There was no blanket and ear plugs kept on my seat, I request iliana thrice for blanket and ear plugs, she was like i will give you after I serve everyone, but I never had one through out my journey. This is how Eithad has trained their air hostess to handle passengers. seriously I will never ever choose eithad."
Pros: "The food was nice. Vegetarian and non veg options were good for all the passengers."
Cons: "Boarding process was one of the most unorganised and pitiful for passengers I have ever seen!! Baggage check in process was a mess and the crew could not handle it. There were multiple lines at baggage check in for some reason for economy itself. We were guided by crew to one of the lines. Then after half hour, they put our line behind another line that arrived after us! Mismanagement led is to wait for nearly 2 hours at baghage check in. Also, the person at kiosk failed to check me in for connecting flight from Abu Dhabi(I was marked for airport checkin, so web check in was not an option). So when I reached Abu Dhabi, I was told my name was not even on the list!! Moreover I had only half hour layover at Abu Dhabi due to delayed flight from Mumbai . One of the worst experiences ever as it was also our honeymoon!"
Pros: "1. Consider improving vegetarians food options. Particularly from Chicago to Abu Dhabi & Abh Dhabi to Chennai was unsatisfactory. Jet airlines also served horrible vegetarian food between Chennai and Abu Dhabi 2. Excessive connection times at Abu Dhabi & also in Chicago/New York. Consider reasonable connecting times (3-4 hours). 3. Relatively long time for check in"
Pros: "Very professional crew and comfortable flight in the A380."
Cons: "There were no seating arrangements at the Gate 61 at Abu Dhabi Airport for the passengers. The pax had to sit on the floor or staircases till it was time for the flight."
Pros: "The food was pretty good for airline meals. We really made good use of the entertainment system which had many great movies and a kids interactive touchscreen. This entertainment system made the flight! Boarding was quick and easy and the ammenty packagfes (eye covers headphones socks ear plugs etc.) and a kids activity book was also great."
Cons: "The bathroom floors were not cleaned often enough and after 10 hours in flight the flight attendants stopped answering the call buttons. Not usually an issue as I like to get up and walk back to request something during long flights but we had children this time and this is harder to do when they are sleeing on you."
Pros: "Every flights I onboarded Was nice. Crew members were nice and Co operative. Diwali surprise was really great."
Cons: "Flights was delayed by 20 mins from JFK airport to Abu Dabhi. Food was horrible. No desert provided. Juice was not natural. It was sugar added juices. Two hour free Internet never worked. Landing was not smooth."
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."
Pros: "Very professional but efficient."
Pros: "Sokratis Repanidis - the food and beverage manager was very courteous and well behaved ...... Thank u especially"
Pros: "Punctual"
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"
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: "."
Cons: "."
Cons: "The flight from Riyadh ALWAYS leaves late. Arabs have so sense of punctuality."
Pros: "Food and hospitalityu"
Cons: "Seating was too narrow"
Pros: "overall it is good."
Cons: "Wheelchair facility should be prompt. we had to wait for an hour to get it.. Also it is not that spacious.."
Pros: "The very large windows and bathroom linoleum pattern were a nice change from what I'm used to with other Airbus and Boeing planes."
Cons: "The sink in the bathroom had a slow drainage issue and upon informing the crew, one attendant immediately went to check it out."
Pros: "Etihad's cabin crew were superb; very attentive and nothing too much trouble. Food and wines delicious, cabin immaculate, seat/bed very comfortable. A great flight on their fabulous A380."
Cons: "The entertainment console doesn’t work"
Cons: "Safe"
Pros: "i could not contact momodo not in e-mail, telephone or chat momodo was real bad with solving problems and i will not recommend you with any way"
Cons: "The cabin attendants attitude need to be warmer and friendly. The food was not good."
Pros: "Nice aircraft and comfortable seating in economy with a good selection of music and movies on the seat back entertainment. Business class was mostly empty and looked very nice and roomy. They should upgrade their frequent flyers the way other airlines do to fill those empty seats and generate the good PR that results. The food was good in my opinion, and the Ethiopian coffee is great. Affordably priced tickets was the selling point for choosing them. They are a young airline and while they go through the motions of being a modern service-oriented airline, but alas for the most part they aren't there yet."
Cons: "We've flown a few Ethiopian Air flights now and while the flight attendants are nice, they aren't always on top of things and paying attention to the needs of the passengers. Not as helpful or attentive as we're used to. Boarding is chaotic and the overnight transfer at Addis Ababa is a total mess. If you get to leave through the airport in the early morning things are relatively painless, but what a nightmare of pushing and shoving chaos when it's busy. The hotels they put you up in are mediocre at best. Last week we enjoyed a long wait for the bus ride to the hotel, cold food when we arrived, and a nice hard bed to "sleep" in. We probably won't fly Ethiopian Air if we have to overnight in Addis Ababa again. I'm willing to pay up to fly another airline and skip the overnight as it's just not worth the hassle."
Pros: "The crew was Excellent"
Cons: "There is to many delays in the night flights, this should be improved."
Pros: "nothing really"
Cons: "entertainment system only played audio out of one ear, small selection of movies, flight departed late and gate changed"
Cons: "Customer service need more improvement they should know how to handle things . Just be courteous is. More than enough"
Pros: "seat not comfortable"
Cons: "more drinks along the way"
Pros: "Excellent seat"
Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Staff needs to be briefed on what an insulin pump is."
Pros: "Conexion"
Cons: "Delayed"
Pros: "The flight from Newark to Abidjan was pretty comfortable and smooth"
Cons: "Once in Abidjan, it became a mess. First we were left waiting for over an hour without any explanation. Then we were told that we had to retrieve our baggage and then recheck them. Hardly anyone spoke English so that was a long and confusing ordeal."
Cons: "Flight was overly delayed - as a result I missed my connection to Capetown and endured a lot of feeds in cancellation of pre-planned trips. Ground staff in Mumbai and Addis Ababa were awful. Mumbai staff was rude and inconsiderate. Addis Ababa team does not even make eye contact when talking to passengers. I could not wait for this travel to be over. Aircraft was mediocre.. During boarding, they don't seem to care about Priority passengers - despite my status with other Star Alliance carriers. Not sure I will fly by Ethiopian again."
Pros: "Flight time changed without notice. Delays in Medinah caused us to miss our connecting flight to Johannesburg. Really poor communication. No agents would take calls in Jeddah. Really terrible service. Would avoid using this airline at all cost. Not the first time I've been delayed by them"
Cons: "Flight time changed without notice. Delays in Medinah caused us to miss our connecting flight to Johannesburg. Really poor communication. No agents would take calls in Jeddah. Really terrible service. Would avoid using this airline at all cost. Not the first time I've been delayed by them"

Pros: "Landing on time"
Cons: "Limited choice of food- no vegetarian options, only meat."
Pros: "New plane fantastic cabin"
Cons: "There was a fight but nothibg to do with the flight crew just some passenger with mental issues"
Cons: "They didn’t announce when boarding started/what zones were to go."
Cons: "The whole thing was a disaster. I lost my connection flight due to incompetence from the Ethiopian airlines representative"
Cons: "I used ethiopian on my way back too they told me my bags will go all the way to my final destination and it did not my bags are now LOST!! Crew is not attentive Food was so bad! I ecpexted quality in all areas but not even close."
Pros: "The overall work ethics and the ease of boarding was awesome as well as time line, for hotel transfer due to layoff time was also excellent"
Cons: "Nothing really"
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: "At the Addis airport, it seems chaos reigns! My flight was never listed on any display to say what gate we departed from. A crowd of people boarding for two different planes just rushed the gate area. I’ve got no idea how everyone ended up on the right plane. My flight was never announced I had to keep going up to ask over and over. The bathrooms at the airport are unhygienic and the available food is abysmal. On the plane was better except that the only entertainment is over head screens that didn’t work my overnight flight was miserable as the lights were on the whole time and they repeatedly woke me up to eat throughout the flight. I’ll do what I can to avoid the Addis airport from now on."
Pros: "Served dinner"

Cons: "I can’t fault anything on this flight."
Pros: "The friendliness and willingness to assist passengers when they notice one facing a challenge"
Cons: "The chairs in economy do not give sufficient leg room especially for tall persons, this would present a challenge on long haul"
Cons: "My phone was stolen on airport premises"
Pros: "the air craft was very good and the comfort is good no complain..."
Cons: "i did'n't like some of the cabin crew the way they are ....and am very disappointed from kinshasa to my check in i did ask a lady about my bag, she told me i will get my bag to cape straight, and i did ask her two times about the bag, she keep saying the same thing i will get my bag to cape town, so until now i haven't find my bag yet, the number they gave me from the airport no body pic up the phone, so i don't know what i can i do to get my bag......if you can hep me in this mater please contact me on my email or on my cell number 0027 78 470 6195. thank you your best regards."
Pros: "Great crew, decent food"
Pros: "Comfortable flight, pleasant airline attendants."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Very helpful, attentive and kind cabin staff."
Cons: "Somewhat dirty ( and smelly ) aircraft even though they are a very new fleet. Some seats had strange patches and stains. Overall cabin experience can be improved in terms of hygiene and food quality ( food was mediocre or slightly worse). Seat ahead reclines almost too much into personal space in the new 787 aircraft. The LCD displays don't pivot so it's virtually impossible to view the entertainment when the occupant of the seat in front fully reclines ( a somewhat irritating issue on a long flight )"
Cons: "Seats were dirty"
Pros: "Comfortable. Crew excellent. On time. Efficient on boarding and landing - good information throughout"
Cons: "Addis Ababa airport very crowded with no seat available for five hour stopover. Food outlets limited"

Pros: "The crew very kind and made me feel comfortable"
Cons: "Old 767, with not comfortable set up and no individual TV set."
Pros: "It's very nice flying with them. I will again fly with them"
Pros: "Entertainment, comfort in flight"
Cons: "The crew was not too caring, and the food was really below average - same dish for lunch and dinner."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable & some of the cabin crew were courteous"
Cons: "Flight delayed due to confusion at boarding gate, unprepared airport staff, wrong info on monitors. Again lack of food, forced to take whatever food they give you or you're told sorry, how can one side serve only fish while the other side chicken??? Vegetarians doomed as they don't get anything & are left without food! Major improvement required in food choices & availability! Our row of seats did not have volume on the tv monitors hence could not use!"
Pros: ":)"
Pros: "The best flight ever and the crew is super cool"
Pros: "Staff were pleasant"
Cons: "One segment of my flight did not have the gluten free meal I had requested ahead of time. Super crowded."
Pros: "Lots of empty seats for sleeping. Nice big windows- best in class. Two hot meals served on board."
