Cons: "may be the fact that it was the same kind of food in both of the flights I had, is not that it was bad just in my opinion they should have more option, especially for south american people, thank you"
Pros: "Very Good Company"
Pros: "Everything except food"
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "."
Pros: "Great crew members. Very friendly and helpful. Qatar Airways is great about providing pillows, blankets, ear plugs and eye masks. Really good food as well."
Cons: "The seats were very close together. With the tray folded out it was right against me without being extended. Leg room was cramped."
Pros: "Comfort of the seat/bed"
Pros: "The airline stewardesses were Fabulous! Especially one from Doha to Cape Town. Food was good and more than enough to eat. I was impressed by the scheduled meals and drink offers , very important for a dietetic"
Cons: "No leg room, can't stretch your legs properly so my bad knee was in pain"
Cons: "I did not like the fact that on now 3 flights I have lost miles, as on every flight I have tried to sign on as a member or frequent flyer and on all flights, there were no entry forms. This is also after my attempt to complete one on line, which I have had no response to."
Pros: "The flight went fairly smooth, the staff were courteous and the food was as good as can be expected of airline food. There were several courses and options, which is always appreciated."
Pros: "Generally good experience at least as far as a very long flight with two children can go. Good food with plenty and quite healthy snacks for kids. Very friendly and attentive crew, comparably comfortable seats, clean and comfortable bathrooms (what not always has been my experience with other airlines)"
Cons: "Due to a misunderstanding at check-in we have been seated away from a baby bassinette (although booked) to sit together with my husband, nobody asked what my preference would be (sitting as a whole family or having a bassinette) and a 17-hour flight with a 9month old baby constantly on my lap was challenging. Also a very disappointing selection of films and documentaries for adults. I ended watching a kids movie with my older daughter and it was the only thing I found appealing. Kids section very good though, my 5-year old was glued to the screen and all the options had my approval :)"
Pros: "Crew are great and entertainment options are good."
Cons: "The seats are quite uncomfortable and small. Really struggled to get comfortable."
Pros: "Helpful staffs and great stewardess!"
Cons: "Too many babies this time! Scary bathroom 2 hours before landing. Food portion can be improved. Entertainment screen and choices can be more considerate!"
Pros: "Aircraft was much better than the flight from US, food was great. The only thing I wished for was more movies."
Cons: "Lack of movies"
Pros: "The flight was not full so there was room to stretch. And the crew was more friendly because they were not overwelmed."
Pros: "Its like traveling in the old days when flight attendants were nice, good looking and absolutely helpful. Bravo! Planes are new and on time."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "It was a good flight. I'd give it 4 of 5 stars."
Pros: "I can understand what kind of flight it was because it was a small plane"
Cons: "Bad smells and an old plane i hope you will change the plane to another better one"
Cons: "Suggestion: I think it is better if all the children and their parents/ care takers are provided priority seats in front. This will reduce unnecessary annoyance caused to other passengers on long flights and at the same time enhance the experience of the children and their care takers if special attention can be devoted to them."
Pros: "The service given from the crew from the moment i checked in was amazing. The flight was smooth and went well. The music and movie selection could be a little bit better. The food was good, but the portion was small and it feels limited. But overall it was amazing experience considering i got a really good price for this flight! Thank you, Qatar."
Cons: "The food portion was small and feels like during the flight the food or i might say snack was limited. The music and movies selection needs a little update and upgrade. I was pretty upset that from LA to Denpasar both the aircrafts didnt have wifi."
Cons: "No good movies on the flight. The crew hardly interacts. The food sucks and they served sausage to me even though I was a vegetarian and they said they didn't have anything else. The headrest kept falling off ."
Cons: "not friendly staff delayed and no help. cost me so much did not get anything"
Pros: "Plane wasn't full, which was nice."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. Starting the pre-boarding process into an area without a restroom was horrible. Not allowing us to bring a water bottle on a 14-hour flight was cruel. Movie selection could be better. Additionally, it seems like the Qatar airport is becoming more like a US airport. Agents were barking orders and the pre-boarding process was slow. It was not a good start to the flight."
Pros: "The plane was neat, clean and the services was world class. I was made to feel at home with service always at my finger tips."
Cons: "Nothing to report."
Cons: "They knew we would never make the connection flight and still they told us it will be fine after adding a stop which changes the schedules. When we arrived the connection plane was still there but we were never registered on it. I will ask for compensations even if I have to take a lawyer."
Pros: "Staff was friendly and I was comfortable"
Cons: "Toilet was a bit messy. Menu can be improved"
Pros: "I liked everything about the flight except how the layover was handled. The original aircraft for the leg of the flight from Doha to L.A. had to be changed, and it seemed like confusion descended, and 2 hours later, we were finally boarded on the new aircraft."
Cons: "The added time to my layover was hard because it was unexpected, and was handled poorly, in my opinion."

Staff is excellent. Friendly and helpful. Food was quite good. Boarding process is smooth and quick, and our flight was timely.

Pros: "Wide airplanes, good crew members."

Pros: "Crew was very nice and accommodating."
Cons: "One piece of our luggage did not arrive on time."
Pros: "Food, entertainment system were very good"

Cons: "The seats in business class were not as soft as they could be but very impressed overall and good value for the cost of the business class ticket"

Pros: "good company"
Pros: "Vegetarian option was tastier than other flights!"
Cons: "They ran out of a lot of food and drinks we wanted. And almost ran out of vegetarian entrees for us even though we requested them ahead of time. Almost no leg room in coach. My touch screen wasn’t working properly which made it hard to choose and watch movies."
Pros: "We made it in one piece"
Cons: "Flight was 4 hour delayed while passengers were on the plane. There was no communication whatsoever. Once we left, tv and entertainment along with WiFi were never working during the flight. Very small and uncomfortable plane."

Cons: "Boarding was slightly chaotic--no one boarded according to group number and people who were not priority used the priority line anyway once all of the members had gone through."
Cons: "Boarding passengers were approved to board, directed to the jetway, and then stopped. We were all stranded, standing on the boardwalk for over 30 minutes. There was no seating and little air conditioning, and we were given no explanation for the long delay in boarding."
Cons: "I t would have been much better to have a faster check in process"
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Crew was ok"
Pros: "Outstanding service Excellent food Adequate entertainment Seat recline was good for economy"

Cons: "It is impossible to make a one hour connecting flight in Istanbul when you take off 30 minutes late, arrive at a distant site (~ 5 km away from the arrival terminal) and the there is only one security guard to screen hundreds arriving. Missed our flight by 90 minutes, the customer service people were rude at the airport and we had a 7 hour delay. What are you thinking???"
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "Seats where extremely uncomfortable. Flight attendants and aircraft staff were so rude and unfriendly at all."
Pros: "I am a vegan and they had delicious vegan food for me and vegetarian food for my daughter."
Cons: "That the plane was not full and we could had better seats if we were made aware of that fact."
Pros: "I eventually arrived at the destination."
Cons: "Difficult to communicate with cabin crew due to lack of English. Flight was delayed by 1 hour. General atmosphere on plane was chaotic I think due to the small plane and length of flight as large numbers of people needed to use toilets."
Pros: "Over all the flight was okay, the food good, boarding was nice, and entertainment was good as well."
Cons: "This flight was for my mother, who is an old woman. On her way back from Belgium to Chicago, she has a layout more than 14 hrs. In this case the Turkish airlines were responsible to offer her a stay in a hotel, however this time they did not offer her any."
Pros: "It was spacious for being Economy."
Cons: "Flight crew that was assisting on my side was awful. Completely disrespectful and not willing to help or listen. Not to mention, special meal was requested online months in advance yet they didn't have any vegetarian meal left and I was left with eating break and fruit."

Cons: "boarding the treat you like animals"
Pros: "Patience is a virtue"
Pros: "Chair did not recline properly - 16A/B"

Pros: "The food and the boarding was fast."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Pros: "Security at the Ataturk airport. Airtight and curious. No wonder terrorists could only strike outside."
Cons: "Departure time is always ten tative with Turkish. Even though they clearly were expecting a late departure, passengers weren't notified. When boarding time was pushed back 30 minutes, it was already 22 minutes overdue (and it started much later then eve n the pushed back time). Terrible standards/"

Snacks could come back to normal now that COVID rules have relaxed, given this is not a low fare company

Pros: "Food and drinks!"
Cons: "Nothing, it was great"
Cons: "The check in gate wouldn't let us board and we lost all our money! :)"
Pros: "N/a"
Cons: "N/a"

Cons: "Flight was delayed twice and because of that the airplane was not as clean as it should of been"
Cons: "It was what I expected. Nothing incredible but good"

Pros: "everybody was very friendly and professional, from the minute we checked in to the minute we arrived to Athens"
Cons: "Nothing, the experience was great."
Pros: "The flight attendant was welcoming at the door and the service was done efficiently."
Cons: "The tv monitor at the airport never bother to inform the passengers which was the boarding gate. After asking other passengers we deducted the gate number. The boarding was like a cattle drive bordering on a stampede since Aegean Airlines didn’t bother to divide passengers by groups, so people rushed to be first in line. We waited standing with our carryons for over 45minutes. Nobody knew what was happening or when they will start boarding. Naturally, when we finally got on board people where blocking the aisle because Aegean didn’t bother to board from back to front as it is usually done. The flight attendants were sweet but their English was almost unintelligible. My brother works and I worked for major airlines and have never seen anything so disorganized and unprofessional."
Pros: "Very punctual and easy. Very friendly crew."
Cons: "The seats feel small both in width and in leg room. Online check in did not work properly--I got a message that I was put on the stand-by list."
Cons: "We have a delay. Alrhoght we order kosher food- we werent in the list- so there was no food for us. At the end one of the passagers didnt wanted to eat so they gave us his portion. Was cold and the feeling of been forget is bad. Specially when you are traveling with a 2y old. That is hungry abd tired. Very disapointed."
Cons: "We boarded late and had to sit on the runway for quite a while. Ended up leaving more than an hour late."
Cons: "I booked for baggage through kayak and had to pay again. What a scam"
Pros: "Free food! Very nice flight attendants"
Cons: "Chaos with boarding - should be by rows"
Pros: "The staff so kind and comfortable seats then we have logical prices"
Cons: "Non-compliance with time"
Pros: "We made it to destination."
Cons: "Absolutely no order in getting to plane. Then told people to check bags. Many ignored them. And they only selectively enforced. Lied about every carry-on suitcase being checked. Plenty of overhead space available. Coat me almosst an hour waiting for my bag which would have easily fit in the overhead. Was late to meeting."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Crew were good. Flight deck announcements were appreciated."
Cons: "Getting on a bus to the aircraft is challenging with 3 young children and carry on. We couldn’t get a seat. Could not eat the croissant as I’m allergic to chocolate. I’d had no breakfast and that was the only option."
Pros: "For a short flight we had a good lunch and good customer service. Seats were comfortable with reasonable legroom."
Pros: "Air attendants were nice"
Cons: "Long queue for baggage check. Food was below average."
Pros: "Crew is very patient, and have a beautiful appearance. We arrived 1hr late, but an attendant was available to help us to the nxt gate. We only had 15mins."
Cons: "Both connecting flights between Heraklion & Athens where late. This one being 1hr late! When we finally did board, it was a mess! Couldn't hear any instructions, the people for the nxt flight from that gate where all standing in the way. In Athens an attendant did his best to get us to the connecting flight. 15mins was all we had. My travel partner had problems walking & had to try to run to the nxt terminal. An awful experience, especially for her!"
Pros: "Aegean delivered excellent service during my flight to Amsterdam from Athens! They actually served a complimentary meal and wine during my 3.5 hour flight. The flight attendants were so nice."
Cons: "I loved the service during the flight and I can't wait to fly Aegean again!"
Pros: "short flight but managed to get some coffee/food, very helpful and polite crew as always"
Cons: "As something that seems to happen pretty much constantly with Aegean... the plane arrived late and was delayed... which also in turn caused me to miss my scheduled bus to Jerusalem... but... what can you do... not everything is in our control unfortunately... I hope one day that the airline will organise itself and get things running a bit more smoothly.... Also... there was a meal on the flight but not option was given to those who are vegetarians to request a special meal at time of booking or later on while managing the booking... this was a bit unfair in my mind that my only option was a pasta and meat sauce meal so I did not get to eat... also... within my Star Alliance menber account I am listed as a vegetarian meal... so it should have been automatic just as it is on Swiss, Lufthansa, Etc... when I fly with them."
Pros: "Me unberan dado un puesto cerca a la entrada...o en uno de los asientos de emergencia. ..yo era una emergencia en ese momento....!!!!!"
Cons: "Llamé pidiendo un sitio especial, porque viajado con muletas, a causa de una fractura al tobillo, neceditaba solevar mi pierna ,me aseguraron de brindarme un sitio especial en estos casos. Me asignaron el Seat 12 F...lejos de la entrada..sin poder alzar mi pierna ni de 20 cm..y me hicieron esperar que todos salieran del avión. . Llevé 3 horas sin alzar mi pierna, lo cual me daba mucho fastidio ....."
Pros: "The staff worked well under pressure"
Cons: "Paying to check luggage was a surprise, typically flights allow at least one checked bag unless they are a discount airline like easy jet or Ryan air. We found this out after waiting in line for over an hour. Also, to pay for the luggage we had to go to the other side of the terminal and wait in a ticket counter line with one employee for 40 minutes. The entire check in process took two hours and the airport wasn't even busy. I'm rarely a complainer, but this was event was inspiring."
Cons: "Bag fee that I wasn't otherwise notified!"
Cons: "A big delay."
Pros: "The boarding experience at the horrible Santorini airport ruined it or us. I wish Aegean had provided us with more instructions about what to expect and when to arrive so that we didn't there so early and stand outside in the heat of so long."
Pros: "Good customer service and unexpectedly good food. Nice staff."
Cons: "Boarding was late, and it took forever to take off and land. I missed my ferry because of this and had to buy another ticket. Also super small seats."

Cons: "No entertainment on a 4 hour flight"
Pros: "Lots of leg room., departure on time,"
Cons: "Our vegi meal was not available"
Cons: "The baggage limits are very strict; if you haven't limited your packing & weighed your bags, be prepared for high fees. 3 of us traveling together with carry-ons that we took free on other airlines (thank you Iberia!) cost us $250!!! Lights were NOT turned off for this overnight flight & VERY noisy"
Pros: "good service prompt take off quick disembarkation"
Cons: "the two paramedics in the seats next to me clearly engaged in an inappropriate workplace relationship lol"
Pros: "Everything was very efficiently run, and the staff were all very friendly and helpful."

Pros: "Quick and direct flight."
Cons: "There wasn't any food or snacks. The airport was a bit chaotic."
Cons: "The boarding gets extremely hectic. When we were getting on our flight they kept us in a hot bus for 15 minutes before letting us out to board the plane. It's also very difficult to get someone from customer services to help - they seem to pass the buck to someone else always and you're left running in circles."
Pros: "Flight attendants were really nice, seats on a plane were comfortable and the views from the plane were amazing"
Pros: "The flight was smooth"
Cons: "No clear signage on line formations Boarding pass kiosk was broken only one working CHAOS No one in authority assisting families or anyone else."

Cons: "Staff is not friendly, does not offer assistance or ask if you need anything."

Pros: "Food, entertainment options, business class seats that lay flat"
Cons: "Rang twice for attendants when I dropped my phone behind the seat. Instructed at beginning of flight to not attempt to retrieve an item behind the seat and to have an attendant helped. No one responded to me, so I got it myself. Wasn’t a big deal, but I don’t appreciate being soundly ignored"
Cons: "I had a weelchair and nobody assist me in Viene in Austria And I lost"
Pros: "Crew was nice enough, entertainment was ok. Food was ok. The plane was old and a little dirty."

Cons: "The flight had delay more than 45 minutes I lost my bus connection"
Pros: "Had 45 Min to connect at vienna airport and our first flight was delayed so we had to run to get in time to the gate. Literally the gate was on the opposite side of the airport. Bad logistics"

Cons: "Poor announcements"
Pros: "I like everithing was great . Thank you ."
Cons: "We had a delay of nearly two hours."
Pros: "The cabin and gate crew provided a very friendly atmosphere. At the gate, the staff were very efficient in getting passengers on board despite the 20-30 minute delay. During the flight, attendants did a good job making sure meals were on time and drinks were offered often."
Cons: "Since the plane clearly came from another destination, the cleaning crew at Vienna International Airport could have taken some more time to vacuum the floor and wipe down the surfaces in the passenger cabin of the aircraft."
Pros: "The personal service, the meals and the accommodations - wonderful!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "I liked the crew on the flight."
Cons: "I was frustrated with the staff at the desk in the airport, as we boarded 20miutes late and they did not feel it necessary to give any comment on the situation. Everyone was puzzled as to why we were not boarding, or if there was a problem. Even the screens did not show any change."

Unfortunately we missed the connection for the flight to Newark, which we were expressly told would be held for us... they shut the door 30 seconds before we arrived, with the plane still at the gate. Had to then go to the only counter in the terminal to see if we could get on standby. Finally got on a flight to JFK instead at 5:15pm."
Pros: "That it is over"
Cons: "Check-in to Canada not possible when passengers have third country passport and Canadian residence card. A combination, although very common, proofed to difficult for AUA personnel. Because of check-in delays lousy seats and miserable overall experience."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for 2 hours because a crew member did not have the proper paperwork. This is incompetence. The trip was long enough w/o adding another two hours due to poor planning. This was completely preventable."
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled .No explanation at all.Hotel was given to us.Thank you for that.We dear only 4 hours.The following day we were there since 5 in the morning and the first word was 10 o clock flight.After to many hours they decided that they can bring us to Mynih and after that flight to Tirana.So I left home Thursday 2 o clock and arrive in Tirana after 2 days.

Cons: "We booked Austrian Airlines to Kosice for 6 to play a concert for 3,000 on Thursday night. 4 of our group arrived from ZRH; 2 from LHR. LHR-VIE was late; we ran and arrived in time catch VIE-KSC before it left, but Austrian Air would not allow us to board, despite that the other part of our travel party was already on the plane and alerted both gate staff and on-board staff we were coming and wee had to play a show that night with Arch Enemy. We had to wait 10 hours in VIE & given €12 for food. AA cited "rotational issues". Shockingly, Austrian Air delayed the 2nd flight by another hour "to wait for someone". We had to cancel the show. Really angry"
Cons: "We flew from TLV to Skopje via Vienna. None of the flight were on time and there was zero communication about the flight status. We arrived to the gate to start the boarding and they just told us wait here for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes we were asked to wait another 20 minutes. Only when we missed the take off time by 10 minutes they bothered to update us and inform us that the flight is being delayed in 2 hours."
Cons: "The connecting flight from Vienna to TLV was terrible. Austrian airline employees at the airport are rude. The information about our connecting flight was not readily or easily accessible. The flight crew from Vienna to TLV were not kind. My daughter 11 years old went hungry without a meal. The stewardess kept telling her the food was coming & never did. This was a terrible trip & we will never use Austrian air again. I will tell all my family & friends of my terrible experience."
Cons: "Bad ground crew luggage problems because their web payment service is not working. CS did not reply with solution"
Pros: "Very nice crew, great entertainment options"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2hours (but we did catch up 1 hour so good job!)"
Pros: "It was clean Lunch was good"
Cons: "There were no vegetarian options for snacks"
Pros: "Food, entertainment."
Cons: "Aircraft was older 777 and lavatories weren't very clean. Upon landing in Vienna, my mobility walker (tagged to be brought up to me at jetway) was sent to my connecting flight to Sophia. The flight crew refused to intercept it and have it brought up to me at the aircraft. To make matters much, much worse, the flight crew eventually gave up and left, leaving me LOCKED inside the jetway for over 30 minutes after calling for a wheelchair. The replentishment crew refused to let me out of the locked jetway. Only after the wheelchair arrived was I let out of the locked jetway. I was taken to the Austrian Airlines service center where I lodged a formal complaint. Supervisor/Rene refused to upgrade my seat in any fashion to compensate for my distress. He did, however, arrange for me to given access to the VIP lounge and then taken to my VIE-SOF gate. Had I had a shorter layover, I would have missed my connecting flight."
Pros: "Flight was cancelled. Waited over two hours to be rebooked. Nothing was offer. Special meals was not available for a flight that is over 9 hours. No other food was available."
Pros: "The plane itself was ok, the food also was ok."
Cons: "As usual, boarding in Miami airport is awful which is not exactly coming from austrian airlines, but they also took part in the unpleasant experience. The announcements were badly articulated, the boarding time was delayed and so on. Onboard, part of the crew completely refused to speak english."
Pros: "Best take off, Best Fight, Perfect Landing...!!!"
Cons: "Diner was tasty...but, no breakfast... would have been great..!!!"
Cons: "It was almost 2 hours delayed"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly and spoke English well. Loved the food and the service"
Cons: "I luked the atmosphire and the silence ."
Cons: "At 11h30 of 14/9 we (HOANG MINH CHAU and NGUYEN SI THANH) were standing at the ticket counter in Vienna and we could not check in due to no payment yet for the ticket and so the reservation has been cancelled. Due to this reason we had have to buy new tickets at the airport ticketing counter. So please sort out your problem with the airline and get back to me. From my bank the payment has been done yet to you. We had have double pay for one trip."

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

Missed connection due to a 1,5 hours delay of first flight, resulting in a 24 hours delay at destination. Poor assistance at the airport. Long wait, with not even internet connection. Awful experience.

As usual, Egyptair was late in departing, so I was late in arriving in Cairo for the connecting flight. It was a short one hour flight, but being 15 minutes late is not good.

Friendly check in and smooth all the way

Cons: "Terrible business class."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Egypt air is one of the worst airlines in the world so everything could have been better. Literally everything"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Food, boarding, carry on bags checks, 1 hr waiting time for baggage claim at destination."

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Not water being spilled on me, but I still enjoy the flight. Thank you."
Pros: "Rapidity for delivering the luggage"
Cons: "Verification of visa"
Pros: "The plane was clean and cool with good legroom in the exit row."
Cons: "It was TERRIBLE that at check-in when i found out that the only one piece of baggage was allowed. I have ALWAYS had two bags on this 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. There was no personal entertainment screens on the back of the seats, only the small community one mounted on the roof. The sound for this was terribly unclear. 8 hour boring flight."
Pros: "I liked the space you have on the seats the leg room is very good because I am a tall person with some airlines it’s very uncomfortable for me thanks."
Cons: "Leg room, food, service from the cabin crew is fantastic just to say a few words. Fli"
Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "Flight delayed... Tight seats"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Big plane, multiple boarding points. Food did its job & helped with the long flight. Movies weren't expansive, but good choices to kill the time."
Cons: "The crew did not have the key to unlock to doors leading to the plane, which forced everyone to wait 30 mins standing in line. It was quite silly! It delayed our flight about 30-45 minutes - not much, but really painful when the flight is almost 12 hours. The crew didn't tell us what was happening either, but it was pretty obvious."
Cons: "I couldn't get my boarding passes online or at the airport kiosk after already checking in online before getting to the airport. I had to wait over an hour in line at the checkin desk just to get my boarding passes. The boarding process in Cairo was even more chaotic with unnecessary multiple disorganized checkpoints and line ups."
Pros: "The flight is on time"
Cons: "their food is very nasty"
Pros: "Excellent staff clean plane ."
Cons: "Trip was delayed for one hour ."
Cons: "The flight crew didn’t provide any kind of leadership when the passengers were causing a delay. Then we landed 20 minuets later than schedule, but the pilot failed to recognize the delay, he announced the schedule arrival time rather than the actual time. Then the freaking airport is so bad, that I decided not to come back here anymore. The luggage were delayed for an hour and half and we asked the supervisor he said that’s usually what happened, and we have to wait, he didn’t even care to provide any explanation for why all this unnecessary delay."
Pros: "Great overall service and treatment."
Cons: "Boarding was really bad. Unorganized. Wish there was more entertainment too on flight."
Cons: "Chair wasnt confortable atall"
Pros: "Upgraded to business class at the ticket counter for a very reasonable price- comfort and ease."
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 Pilots professionalism, frequent updates. The attention given to the passengers, especially mother's and babies."
Cons: "Ground staff arbitrarily decided whose carryon luggage they should take because the flight was full and loading over head compartments do take up time and might cause delay. I would like to suggest that an announcement be made and ask passengers to volunteer their carryon to be loaded with other luggage..."
Pros: "The timing is so accurate as well they were so fast getting everything done."
Cons: "Most of the crew are really professional but few were little bit aggressive."
Pros: "Food needs improvement"
Pros: "Inexpensive fair."
Cons: "Little interaction with crew"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Very rough landing."
Cons: "Everyone was courteous. And considerate. Like me!"
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."
Pros: "Crew was lovely"
Cons: "All was fine"
Pros: "Same coomment"
Pros: "Flight was punctual"
Cons: "My hotel was not good at my transition to other destinationsand it took 4 hours to get it"
