Hyperactive, very noisy three-year old raised a ruckus for the almost the whole flight and during the long wait to disembark. I think that there were 100 empty places on the plane. The child and his mother and father could have been invited to move to a less densely occupied part of the aircraft.
Wheel service at Dubai airport need to improve. There is no direct service from one gate to another gate for transfer passengers, passengers have to wait for long. Thanks
These tickets were purchased with a stolen credit card. These people should have been arrested.
Boarding process was a little chaotic but flight was one of the best I’ve ever had.
Pros: "Flight was nice and on time"
Cons: "No toothbrush toothpaste and eyes shades provided"
Pros: "Nice crew."
Cons: "Horrible seats. Very uncomfortable. No room to move around. Overcrowded plane."
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "Nothing, absolutely loved it"
Pros: "Pilot does not waste time chatting. Still too much chatter (interrupting movies) but less than on other airlines."
Cons: "Entertainment system is Windows based and designed by a moron, especially CC behavior. Shows ads (LOTS) before each movie. Pops up window chrome every time you dismiss PA announcements. Very few movies/TVs (even those from the US) have CC."
Pros: "A vast amount of entertainment"
Cons: "Cabin crew was not the best. Some were very forgetful and did not return to provide us with drinks with our meal. Some did not ask passengers to raise their chairs during meal time and we were constantly forced to do it yourself."
Pros: "It was ok"
Cons: "Love Emirates airline"
Cons: "Connections can be imporoved"
Cons: "Queuing in the sky bridge reminds me of boarding a budget carrier. Birmingham needs expansion to be seriously considered a major international airport."
Pros: "Service was excelleny"
Pros: "The ICE entertainment"
Pros: "Very comfortable flight"
Pros: "Least amount of time spent at baggage check, most helpful service on the ground and in flight, that I have ever experienced."
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "I must admit....this is one of the best experiences I have had flying and I fly this route a lot. I was traveling with an Elder who required a wheelchair and every step of the way it was smooth and the crew was attentive."
Pros: "All of the above"
Cons: "Nothing that i didn't like"
Pros: "Live football final game"
Cons: "Cannot think of anything"
Pros: "Service and food"
Cons: "My husband had his backpack and a carry on when we checked in at JFK. He was not allowed. From Dubai to Manila, we saw a lot of passengers who had two or more carry on’s. The floors at Dubai airport are dirty."
Pros: "Nothing really. Packed like sardines in seats which are too narrow."
Cons: "2 hour delay at DFW because other flights de icing Diverted in mid Atlantic to Dublin because of problems with toilets. Waited 2-3 hours there. Missed connecting flight from Dubai to BLR. Only good thing was that Emirates gave me a boarding pass to a later flight and a meal voucher that was accepted with bad grace by the barista at terminal B Costas. Two of the meal voucher choices Cozi & Burger King had gone out of business!"
Pros: "The crew helped me with a duct tape but it wasn't staying"
Pros: "Smooth ride, decent food, good entertainment."
Cons: "Long periods without in cabin service, people had to repeatedly ask for water or get up to get water. Boarding Gates were totally secluded from the shops and restaurants of Dubai airport."
Pros: "In every way this was an excellent flight."
Pros: "We are arived safe"
Cons: "The attitude of the crew it was very good and the comportment very nice"
Pros: "Flight wasn't cancelled."
Cons: "Lengthy check in of baggage, followed by delayed boarding."
Cons: "I requested the waiter(Asian) to serve me a non-egg breakfast if there were any remaining. He curtly told me that if I had not pre-booked the non-egg breakfast he could not provide me. Few minutes later I made the same request to another waitress and she quickly provided me the non-egg breakfast."
Pros: "Overall very good"
Cons: "This seemed far different from emirate flights that I'm used to. Over the years their service has decreased but the 1 meal and sub-par snack I got for an 8.5hr flight was poor, likened to a budget airline. This is the second flight recently I've been on that the drinks come so long after the meal you don't even get to enjoy your cola with the meal. The first food cart should have colas if there won't be another cart to come along until 30+ minutes later. I also expected Emirates to provide an eye patch, an 8 hr+ flight in the night time hours in worthy of an eyepatch. Budget airlines do not provide this, but I expected Emirates to. Lastly, I don't think it's necessary to hand out a menu indicating there is something to look forward to when the food is of quite poor standards for Emirates, standard for all other airlines. Maybe the Durban to Dubai route stocks he flights with less experienced crew, this is the impression I got; a much less refined group of people on the plane."
Pros: "The roomy seat and extra leg room are very nice. Very friendly crew, they made travelling with children a lot easier. Like them."
Cons: "The food is not as good as expected I actually did not eat the food, it was just not good."
Pros: "It's was my favorite traveling"
Pros: "The crew was great in everything that they did."
Pros: "The overall service was excellent as the flight left on time and the flight attendants were attentive. The food onboard was perhaps the best quality I have ever had on a flight."
Cons: "I missed the first segment of my flight due to an accident and traffic on the way to the airport. I was asked to pay $1200 to get on to the next flight (without any warning that my subsequent segments will be suspended) so I bought an one way to Dubai from NYC. Then my subsequent flights were all suspended and I had to buy a new set of flights for the remaining of the trip. I didn't get to take any of the flights I purchased through Kayak."
Cons: "After traveling for 19 hours from Washington DC to Karachi, , They lost by luggage. They asked me to come and collect it after 6 hours. Went to the airport could see my luggage sitting in the trolley but still made me wait another 3 hours. NO COMPENSATION / NO APOLOGIZES Going back from Karachi to Washington DC, passenger besides me had a child in his lap throughout the flight. That passengers arm and legs were in my part of the seat throughout the flight. I could not sit or eat or relax. The child in the lap kept on touching me and the food I had on the tray as was unable to eat it. I weigh 165 but the seats are so small that one has to struggle. When back Dulles airport, had to weight for 1.5 hours for the bag to arrive @ thanks to big jumbo A380 aircraft. First class were priority. They checked in first, got their luggage first on a different belt, rest were treated like third class people. Never wasting my $ in this airline."
Pros: "Great service, comfortable seats, and great entertainment ..the food isnt too bad depending if ur not a picky eater, but overall its the best"
Pros: "Although the printed menus are a classy touch, I feel like they are an enormous waste- completely unnecessary. At the very least they should be recycled."
Cons: "Cabin service was very slow. We were an hour and a half into each flight before we were offered a drink. No additional drinks were offered with the meal. There were no further services offered after the tea and coffee service... 3 full hours before we landed! Also, the economy class seats are extremely cramped. When the person in front of me leaned their seat back, I couldn't eat my mael comfortably and the TV screen was 12 inches away from my face."
Pros: "Low fat meal was great! (the salmon one)"
Cons: "They broke my checked in luggage!!!"
Pros: "Great entertainment options, crew is freindly and helpful. Early Check-in was easy, fast and convenient."
Cons: "Leg space, seat cushion needs to be more- it seems claustrophobic, timings for the flight- need some as a day time flight rather then being up all night, going through the channel of air bus to the flight...."
Pros: "Entertainment was very good. Enough variety to pass the time."
Cons: "The aisles were blocked a lot of the time making it hard to get to the toilets."
Pros: "Large room between seats in economy such that I could sit comfortably with my rather long legs"
Pros: "I cancelled the flight 6 hours after booking. The travel agency changed me $50 per passenger. The agent did not render any service whatsoever, but stole $100 from my visa card."
Pros: "After what happened on Wednesday August 3rd I expected there to be some craziness but not like this. I was checked in by an employee who just started that day. She tells me in a faint voice "sir you may not make this flight". After that she tells me to check back 1 hour before the flight leaves. So I do, another teller states you made the flight please go to security. I have 45 minutes before the flight is schedule to leave at 3pm. I rush with my wife from one part of DXB to the other. Somehow make it there, but then have to wait for over 2 hours because of a connecting flight being delayed, unbelievable. Then when we land and I try to claim my bag, the bags are lost. Not just mine quite a few passengers. I go to baggage claim and the teller is screaming at me and other passangers "shut up, I don't care about your bag". This is the most disrespectful moment of the trip, never have I experienced a customer service provider yell at me like this. This experience is a direct reflection of emirates lack of management in their hiring process, as well as their ability to train their staff in high stress environments. Will I fly emirates again probably not, paying a premium for below average service is not worth it. The cabin crew were very thoughtful and respectful and made the trip bareable, their ground crew is anot her story."
Cons: "Lack of management with staff, being unable to control a high stress level situation, additionally the lack of communication regarding the progress of my flight. Delays and set backs happen but communication would help me plan and be prepared accordingly."
Pros: "Crew attitude and helpfulness. Food and beverage."
Cons: "Boarding procedures. Inadequate bathrooms for passenger numbers. Seat width. No economy plus seating."
I had an excellent experience with Ethiopian Airlines.
Pros: "The food, air crew respectful and dedicated to duty"
Cons: "Everything was perfectly ok"
Pros: "The crew was nice. Service was excellent."
Cons: "The upholstery can be improved."
Cons: "Ethipian Airlines overbooked my return flight and did not offer me an alternate return flight so I could return on my designated date. They instructed me to come back the following date to fly. I was not compensated nor offered at the very least an apology. The ticketing staff was unprofessional and attempted to blame me for not flying. Do not fly Ethiopian Airlines out of Accra ever!!!"
Pros: "Take off was quick, as well as deplaning"
Cons: "the little cornbread cake was pretty bad."
Cons: "1 hr delay in departure from Lusaka. Plastic cutlery was difficult to eat with. More frequent water/drinks (or waterbottles instead of little cups) would have been appreciated. Movie options were not as good as other airlines."
Pros: "The crew was amazing and the seat comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing I can think of yet."
Cons: "Poorly organised meal service"
Cons: "Online check in was not possible. The check in and boarding process took more than two hours and there was no order."
Cons: "Flight delays with no info from staff. Food poorly prepared. No orderly queues - there is aggression with no intervention from staff. There is no need for two security checks when making connections in Addis. Plane loos were all very stinky and dirty. I now remember why I had stopped using ET!"
Pros: "everything was pretty adequate"
Cons: "they skipped me when they passed out food and never came back."
Cons: "There is no phone charging or entertainment. Also couldn't bring on carry-on sized bags with wheels and were forced to check them."
Pros: "flight was on time"
Cons: "Felt a bit like cattle because boarding was in a tight space and there was a lot of confusion as to who should stand where. Not sure why there were different zones for boarding because they didn't matter."
Cons: "Lounge seating and services. Boarding. Lots of uncontrollable people trying to be first to board."
Pros: "Your crew were great."
Pros: "Nice crew. Smooth flight :)"
Pros: "I liked they’re fury free in flight shopping, very nice affordable pieces of jewelry and perfumes"
Cons: "They weighed my carryon! I haven’t seen any other airline do that before. I flew with them 3 times this year, 13 hour each flight and the entertainment was not the best. They didn’t have enough current movies or tv shows. The food was bland. Coffee cups were plastic and it burnt my finger."
Pros: "Not much, actually."
Cons: "None of the air stewardess has a smile on their face when talking to or serving passengers. I’m not sure they know how to engage with passengers in a friendly way. My entertainment screen wasn’t working. After resetting, it took them an hour to inform me that I could move to another seat if I wanted to, as they couldn’t resolve the problem with the screen. The food lacked in flavour and the sausage served for breakfast was undercooked."
Pros: "The staff was very helpful and friendly. They provided a hotel, meals, and transportation on a long layover."
Cons: "Transportation from the aircraft to terminals."
Pros: "Loved the meals and the leg room"
Cons: "The entertainment could have been better but overall was not too bad"
Cons: "We had requested vegetarian meals, which were not provided on either leg of the Ethiopian Airlines flight. In addition, we had to pay an extra baggage fee and the payment process required us to wait for 45 minutes at the check in desk while the agents tried to sort out a problem wiht their computer system. They claimed that the problem was with the integration of their system with SAA's system."
Pros: "Ground crew communicated well. It was easy to check in; boarding was done on time and smoothly."
Cons: "No complaints, well done to the Ndjamena team."
Pros: "The aircraft was clean and the food served was cool"

Cons: "Poor communication on boarding gate for business class Aircraft and business seat just medium Food quite as fast-food service"
Pros: "Service, the entertainment selection, just everything seemed perfect"
Pros: "Having never even heard of Ethiopian Airline, our expectations weren’t very high. We found the boarding process to work well. The staff was great and the meals were very good. The flights were on time and efficient."
Cons: "On many of the flights we had to use the roll up stairs. The water that they served tasted like tap water. The seats seem closer (less leg room) than other airlines."
Pros: "delayed departure due to weather , very limited information from the crew towards the passengers."
Pros: "I like that the bulkhead seats (typically where the baby bassinet is placed) have electrical outlets which I used to easily charge my phone; and that there is nice legroom space."
Cons: "Economy is a bit tight; the bidding process for Cloud Nine (business class) has reduced the chance of passengers being upgraded for free especially as a means to reward frequent flyers, or help passengers with special needs/accommodations."
Cons: "the layover in Dublin was too long--longer than scheduled"
Pros: "It is an African airline so I am doing my best to support it. I am grateful I was allocated to a hotel for my long layover"
Cons: "I had a long layover in Addis and the hotel I was allocated to could improve its service. I was expected to be served breakfast in the morning. My flight was at 820 am There could be some improvement on food"
Pros: "Meals were pretty good and a screen that had entertainment and could charge the phone. Baggage allowance helpful"
Cons: "Little tight on leg room."
Cons: "comfort of the seats. the made the flight early to 0730 am and still serving lunch at 0830 in the morning. All was bad"
Pros: "We were told by United that Ethiopian Airlines does not allow more than 2 checked bags per customer, but that is absolutely not the case. We ended up driving to LA and found that Ethiopian accepts as many bags as we will pay for."
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"
Pros: "Extra comfort and quiet in business class worth cost"
Cons: "everything about it, from the random cancellation of my flight, to missing my connection, and their inability to get me another flight, spending over 24 hours in travel for a mere 6 hour flight. No customer service, would never recommend Ethiopian Airlines to anyone."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, pleasant airline attendants."
Pros: "I do like the cheerfulness of the flight crew. They are very attentive."
Cons: "The water is doled out in small cups. Not enough!"
Cons: "At Addis airport, they announced first that the trip got cancelled and postponed for another 7 hours. Then while lining up to change my ticket, I overheard people saying that the boarding is starting in 30 minutes and we have to rush to the gate. Then the gate number changed 3 times and the boarding time got delayed few times as well. It was a 5 stars chaos that trip!"
Pros: "Crew on flight were very nice and responding."
Cons: "The flight was delayed but they didn't tell us, they kept saying we are about to board the flight in a few minute. eventually it was an hour late. It's not a big delay but the way they acted like they didn't know anything and didn't tell us anything was not OK. Other then that flight was fine. there is no electricity or multimedia and not even a USB charge!"
Cons: "I was suppose to stay on the flight in Hong Kong to continue to Ethiopia and they never made an announcement. I had a seat with a TV that did not work and it took over 30 mins for a flight attendant to respond."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
