It's getting to the point in life that a flight in coach in those little seats for 9 to 15 hours is just too cramped. This was a packed flight with nearly every center seat taken. Good for Qatar airlines, which is a terrific airline, but its tough to ride in those little seats on long-haul flights

It's getting to the point in life that a flight in coach in those little seats for 9 to 15 hours is just too cramped. This was a packed flight with nearly every center seat taken. Good for Qatar airlines, which is a terrific airline, but its tough to ride in those little seats on long-haul flights

Qatar is undoubtedly the best airline in the world. Very impressed with their all around service and customer care.

The airport staff of Qatar airlines was UNFRIENDLY and UNHELPFUL. They all acted like we were bothering them. They gave no help in moving from one station to another. In general they gave an extremely bad first impression of Qatar airlines!!

Pros: "Finally the staggered deboarding. It feels like COVID has actually disciplined us passengers this time and kept us from behaving like unruly cattle once the plane halts."
Cons: "Initial confusion at boarding with paperwork and onward passage through Athens,GREECE. Once again the airport teams reached out to my colleagues and I ahead of time and managed to resolve to satisfaction. Perhaps reservation team can trigger a call to the passengers while they are still at home asking for the documentation validation electronically over a secured database.... just a thought. Again, being a part of the Experience and Innovation team, travel and tourism needs less human interaction, now more than ever. While we digitalized the obvious, the exceptions can remain humanized."
Pros: "I would have appreciated that with ALL required paperwork, my stay at check in point would have lasted a little less than two hours I spent standing and waiting for a feedback."
Cons: "Updating clients and offering a seat if it’s a long wait could have improved the situation. It is on reception that the business gets its impression. Thanks."
Pros: "Everything great!"
Cons: "~"
Pros: "Crew was great. They made up for mistakes in a positive and amenable way."
Cons: "Flight was late. There was no communication about it. The flight from Joburg to Doha was late, therefore I missed my connection. The delay was not officially communicated to any of the passengers — no announcements made, no representatives to talk to at the gate — until well past the time that we should have been in the air. It was distressing."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and professional"
Cons: "Food wasn't great"
Pros: "Crew is amazing"
Cons: "The Entertainment screen wasn’t working"
Pros: "Great crew and food. Nice economy class."
Pros: "Nice crew, 1 hr free WiFi"
Cons: "Significant delay on jetway, temps uncomfortable,"
Pros: "Very nice aircraft , crew, and supplies"
Cons: "Flight delayed, so missed connecting flight and stuck in Qatar for 13 hours on top of a 22 hour regular flight schedule"
Pros: "Good Service.Efficient"
Cons: "No Phone charging facilities on back of the seat unlike other Qatar aircraft."
Pros: "Amazing airlines. Lots of food and snacks. Because of a long layover they even got us a hotel room for free!"
Cons: "Very strict luggage rules, even flying international we were only allowed a handbag on board, not our carryon"
Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "I found my seat a bit uncomfortable for this leg of the jurney"
Cons: "Narrow 2x2 sleeper seats are really narrow and feel much too close to one another. ."
Pros: "The service of the cabin was great!"
Cons: "The food was not of the quality I would have expected from the expectation created by the airlines marketing. We boarded close to a full hour later than scheduled and the boarding process was very slow."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Excellent"
Pros: "decent leg room. the staff was accommodating"
Cons: "the brea was har. some of the food was overheated thus making it hard to eat"
Pros: "Fantastic service, very friendly staff who are always happy to help"
Cons: "Should have internet free of charge in flight"
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: "The change of my flight schedule for the entire journey was done without giving me any options (departure flights from origin and return). It would have caused me inconvenience if the change of time does not allow me to adjust my plans."
Pros: "Great flight. Everything was good. The only very small issue is hey offer WiFi but even if you pay the allocation of data make you feel like you living in the 1990. 10 meg free and 300 meg for a whole flight is a complete joke, especially for USD 30. They could manage protocols but give a reasonable service."
Cons: "WiFi"
Pros: "Qatar is a reliable airline."
Cons: "No matter how many times I have traveled with Qatar (5 international flights in the last year); I still do not receive any benefits such a priority boarding or upgrades."

Pros: "great crew and food."
Cons: "being charged excess baggage when one suitcase weigh under weight. Having to wait at the terminal for a hour and a half because of bad weather -- not the pilot's fault"
Pros: "The crew service"
Cons: "The cost of internet access"
Pros: "Excellent service from the crew. Flight on time."
Pros: "The plane from Johannesburg to Doha was Fine but not as wonderful and comfortable As flight from Doha to Chicago"
Cons: "They lost my bag and that’s disappointing considering I have my bank account details in that bag. Very disappointed by this"
Pros: "Business Class is wonderful"
Pros: "I was actually impressed with the entertainment selection :)"
Cons: "The economy seats are just unfortunately not a place you can get comfortable enough to sleep. On 14 hour flights one hopes to sleep."
Pros: "It was a direct flight with good food and movies to choose from"
Cons: "Small cramped seats in economy"
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Hard cushioning and narrow seats on the 787"
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."
Pros: "Good in-flight service"
Cons: "Cramped seats"
Pros: "In general the crew was very nice."
Cons: "The dreamliner is a little tight in relation to the B777. The Kosher meals very all the same for breakfast lunch and snack"
Pros: "It was excellent."
Cons: "It was excellent."
Cons: "1. rude staff - i stood in Jburg at the counter for 13 minutes (i checked my clock) while 8 staff ladies spoke among themselves in a myriad of languages. FINALLY one lady asked if i had been helped! I said no and she was clearly less than thrilled to be the one to help with my question. i literally just wanted to ask if my seat assignment was a window, middle or aisle, but it was like i was the bane of her existence and i interrupted their social hour. On my outbound flight (ORD to DOH) I also watched three staff members be beyond rude to guest after guest at the check in counter regarding baggage when they came forward to "re check-in" which was a new requirement for most people. There was a lot of general confusion on behalf of the consumers and the staff was NOT the least bit patient or helpful in explaining what they needed from us or why this flight had different procedures than normal. I still don't know why they were so fussy about baggage and made everyone re check in at the gate in fact. And they didnt do it to my baggage so i have no idea why they were so rude to some and completely left others alone. (didn't seem to have to do with size, carrying of electronics, i don't know?) 2. the physical flight - you changed my original flight time to something that was REALLY close for my connection from DOH to CDG, so you instead bumped me to a later flight without consulting me. it would have caused me to miss a connection flight I booked separately through EasyJet from Pairs to my home airport BIQ. I had to figure that out on my own. RUSH through Doha to make my 35 min connection and barely was allowed to board my onward Paris flight by the Qatar gate staff which was only cutting it close as a result of YOUR changes! Yet i was treated like i was somehow "late" and wouldn't be able to board ??? Again incredibly rude staff. Subsequently you lost my luggage because the connection was too tight. i landed on Friday and it didn't catch up to me until Tuesday. Not one person has said sorry or offered any restitution. And this is honestly what upsets me the most. I doubt anyone even reads this. pathetic. I work for a travel club and since Monday (so in 4 days) I have actively reached out to 4 clients to cancel and re-booked their Qatar airways flight to another carrier to get them to Johannesburg. They will be doing the same safari experience I did, but I will NOT recommend and book my clients on Qatar after my experience."
Cons: "You canceled our flight in the last minute. we were starting our holidays and missed one day included the booking reservation. We didn't get any refund regarding this issue. On the other hand, i booked my special meal and never received it."
Pros: "The flight was on time, not full and the crew and the entertainment was excellent. Very happy with the experience of flying on Qatar Airways from Johannesburg to Miami."
Cons: "Everything was well, the food was good not great (even for airplane food) and the only other issue is it seemed like trash from our drinks and food services was picked up for quite a while or until we brought it to the flight attendants ourselves."
Pros: "landed safely"
Cons: "Had to claim bags at Doha and go through multiple security screenings to board connecting flight. At one point all the security was not functioning and we were packed up in lines. Barely had time to stop at the restroom before final security check where it was all so disorganized. After that check we were told that if we left we had to go through security again. Would have been nice to know that upfront. It was a madhouse going through that final security check and my husband's wallet was lost for a bit. No one really tried to help and we were told to move aside. Finally someone saw that it had fallen beside one of the counters. It was all horrible. Because of all this our 5 hour layover was a hassle with no time for food, etc. The whole airport experience was confusing and badly handled."
Pros: "Excellent in every way. Clearly a top tier airlines. I will choose Qatar Airlines at every opportunity."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Kayak/priceline re-booked my flight for my sister and I from SAA to BA, but failed to completely reissue us tickets. When we checked in for the flight, we had no ticket for the first leg of the flight, but we had tickets for the remaining flights. We immediately called to fix this problem, but due to slow customer service, we weren't issued tickets in time and the flight left without us. We missed all remaining connecting flights and were forced to buy New tickets. Now we have to work with kayak/priceline to get all my money back due to their error. We came back a day later than expected and missed going back to work."
Pros: "I enjoyed the staff"
Cons: "The screens were old school and I HS a hard time getting it to work Also the sleep mask I received had sticky stuff all over it when I opened the package."
Pros: "Excellent Cabin Crews, Flights on time"
Cons: "Food is mediocre at best, comfort on 787 is terrible."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Because of poor connection, arrived for flight 15 min. before departure. Gate agent wouldn't allow us to board and wouldn't help us rebook. Offered no help."
Pros: "Seat space. Stevice. Terminal."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Attendant was rude and never really finished service, never remembered any requests and consistently skipped guests when providing food or drink service, cabin kept oscillating between either too hot or too cold."
Cons: "We took off in a terrible storm with lightning striking all around the plane. Very rough, lightning which scared the hell out of both me and my wife."

Who thought it was a good idea to to charge passengers for food and even basic drinks (coffee!) on the flight? Never expected that from Swiss

There was no internet in the airport and/or entertainment options on the flight.

Only one improvement needed. The boarding process was chaotic. After pre-boarding was completed, the entire remaining number of passengers (lots of them, big aircraft) were allowed to board without separating into logical groups or by row numbers. Slowed things down with crowded aisles, people trying to get by people trying to stow overhead luggage, getting situated, etc. Never had this happen in recent history on any other airline.

Pros: "Not one thing about my experience."
Cons: "The alertness of the staff, the boarding process, the knowledge of the staff. Not breaking my luggage!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Staff was very friendly and loved the food."

Pros: "Very short flight so pretty standard."
Cons: "The flight attendants and employees at the airport seemed completely miserable. I heard flight attendants telling passengers on multiple occasions that because the flight was short they couldn’t help them."
Pros: "Friendliness"
Cons: "The boarding by groups could improve the process"
Pros: "When you lose your phone in the business class seat and a technician goes to find it once you land in Zurich and the day that it has miraculously disappeared there isn’t much to like at all about Swiss Airlines. Swiss Airlines isn’t going to hear the end of this is they don’t agree to replace my son’s phone. My husband is a lawyer and we are prepared to bring this to the public."
Cons: "My son dropped his phone in business class seat and the ground staff technician claimed it wasn’t there. Theft at its best! Swiss Air better take responsibility for their shady staff and agree to replace my don’s Phone promptly or we will take this to the public eye and courts. I’m sure we could get a big class action suit."
Pros: "The business class ground crew proposed to check in our hand baggage and were very helpful. (We were in economy class) It was my birthday and i was very touched to receive a spontaneously made card and some chocolate truffles and a smile from the flight crew."
Cons: "I think the choice of films could be improved."

Pros: "Flight staff was attentive and professional."
Cons: "The food was mediocre."
Cons: "Boarding is a mess There is no order at all That delays the flight"
Pros: "There was a very long line at the check in counter on the way back. Many people were nervous about missing their flights. Apparently the counter computers were out of order and they only had 2 stations to support the passengers at a very busy time. Other than that, everything was smooth and pleasurable."
Cons: "It was a 2 hour 40 minute flight. No entertainment."
Pros: "Great seats,comfortable, food was delicious,good section movies. Friendly staff"

Cons: "No complaints. Smooth from start to finish."
Pros: "Crew was great. Flight kept time. Safe trip. Thank you."
Cons: "Entertainment failed on both my seat and the lady next to me. On top of that they secrectly charged $10 extra on my card after my flight!

I need this excess charges reversed. I demand an explanation!"

Pros: "Fast"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Check in"
Pros: "We arrived early"
Cons: "No entertainment, no pillows or blankets, uncomfortable seats"

Cons: "Can't think of anything"
Cons: "No priority boarding with my baby,had to complain that a lot of other passengers were going by us(while I was waiting with my baby asleep in her stroller and me being pregnant) so that the crew would let us go through to get in"

Pros: "food and crew were excellent: good meals, free wine."
Cons: "Screen was dim and low-resolution, controls slow and hard to use, no power outlets."
Pros: "The larding was terrible. I came in a wheelchair but am able to walk short distances. I spoke to man at the gate about boarding early and he said he would come and get me. But he did not and I had to push and shove with everyone else as their is no plan. Awful! Service was good. Lots of water and juice brought round in the night of"

Pros: "The crew was amazing, food and overall experience."
Pros: "The crew was good"
Cons: "Our flight was an hour late causing us to miss our connecting flight to Corfu. Had to spend the night in an Athens hotel 45 minutes from airport. Had 4 hours sleep before returning to Athens airport for morning flight. My luggage did not make it onto the morning flight and did not get delivered to Corfu for over 48 hours. I spent 3 days in the same clothes. Not a pleasant experience."
Pros: "Walked away from plane."
Cons: "The seat was the most uncomfortable I’ve sat in for some time. No in seat charge option."
Pros: "The flight was delayed from Geneva to Athens. The airport was chaotic in Athens and I therefore missed my connection to Riyadh. Neither Aegean nor the airport staff were helpful or tried to accommodate or reimburse me"

Cons: "The seat backs are hard and there is very little knee room"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "When I booked the tickets , anywhere it was writen that it will cost a lot for the luggages. I payed 53 euros each ticket and 40 euros for each luggage for a flight of 1 hour! It is the very first time that I pay this price! I am not happy! Kayak should advise clearly the clients for these conditions!!! And they accept no visa or bank card. All in cash!!!"
Pros: "Great service, crew and good food"
Cons: "One hour delay"
Cons: "Plane got stuck on the runway for 45 minutes citing some air congestion reason over Cyprus!!!! we where in Lebanon. Comfort is low for the prices you pay"

Cons: "The agent at check in refused to even consider a business class upgrade, said I had to do that 48 hours in advance. Seems like a stupid policy to me, unless she was just flat out lying to me."
Cons: "At Beirut airport the manager gave permission to a passenger at check in to bypass all the passengers waiting in line just because he was with someone!!! When I stepped out, and asked him can you do this. Very rudely he said, that this passenger is business class. I didn't believe him, so I asked the second manager if this is correct. He didn't do anything about it. When on the plane, the passenger, was sitting behind me in economy class. Shitty service."
Cons: "The website only mentions about having to pay for extra luggage and they made me pay 55 dollars at the airport for a 20 kg suitcase. This is dishonest and unacceptable."
Pros: "Accurate times"
Cons: "Night travelling"
Pros: "Food and drinks provided."
Cons: "Small seats. Slow service at baggage drop off."
Pros: "Nice aircraft , excellent crew"
Pros: "Everything was perfect, the flight late a little but it was ok with the connection...."
Pros: "Thanks for everything"
Cons: "Thanks for everything"
Pros: "Nice to get a meal, but don't understand why you do that when you charge extra for baggage."
Cons: "Couldn't understand attendant's announcements; too rushed + accent. Too rigid about lavatories including opening the door when people were using it."
Cons: "With Kayak I booked Tel Aviv to Malta with 1 hour stop in Athens. The first flight was delayed by an hour hence making me lose my second flight. Aegean then booked me on a flight to Catania (Italy) for a different connection to Malta. Only that this Aegean flight was also delayed by an hour making me miss the second connection. Eventually I arrived in Malta 15 hours later than scheduled. Aegean customer service reps were extremely unhelpful and made this 10 times more difficult. I missed a whole vacation day, amassed roaming telephone charges and on top of that missed a reservation for Dinner in the Sky Malta."
Pros: "On time and good service"
Cons: "Check in was a nightmare. Open up the gates at least two hours before departure to avoid stress for all parties involved."

Cons: "I'm sure it would have been a lovely flight had I taken it."

Cons: "They charged 35 euro for one luggage. That's too high and nowhere during my reservation did it say that, KAYAK!!!"
Pros: "The food was good. The flight attendants weren't overly friendly but I didn't mind. No problem checking in or claiming my suitcase."
Cons: "The flight boarded about 45 minutes late, and none of the employees at the desk at the gate bothered to tell anyone why, or when an estimated real boarding time would be. Flight was pretty warm as well, and seats were tight even for the 120 pound person I am. No entertainment, but they did show a map of where we were which was nice."
Pros: "The service in overall was good. Since this is consider to be a low cost fare, my expectation were not high."
Cons: "My Luggage did not arrive. Since I have been in a motorcycle tour, I had expensive and valuable accessories and I also bought new things. For almost 48 hours, I have been very worried that I will need to go through an expensive law suite. The whole issue was cause because of overbooking. I was asked to be on a waiting list with my luggage. When I was boarding I specifically asked the local crew whether my luggage is on board as well and I was answered definitely "YES"."
Pros: "Professionalism. The flight attendants were professional, very efficient and helpful."
Cons: "Vegetarian. I should have ordered in advance."
Cons: "Doesn't mention on kayak that the flight was low-cost flight and that we need to pay extra for luggage. we had to pay it on the check -in on airport and it was so expensive."
Pros: "Clean, smooth, on time"
Cons: "Not interesting"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient but we sat on the plane for over an hour before leaving. Then when we deplaned, we were not told that we are not connected to a tube and would have to go down stairs to go to a bus which will bring us to the airport. The weather was blistering cold ! The same taxi in and out delay happened on the connecting flight to London and we arrived London at 2pm instead of 10:30am. Food was mainly carbohydrates. Entertainment was absent except for a screen showing a trailer of featured locations in Athens."
Pros: "THe food was not bad."
Cons: "They charged me for a standard one piece of luggage 35 Euro without advance notification. I forgot my phone at the gate, but they did not let me go back to take it (even when I was willing to give up on the flight and bear the cost). An awful company. To stay away."
Cons: "They should board the back rows first so that people are not jamming the isle, like they do in Brazil. The boarding ran 15 minutes late."
Pros: "Flight attendants were really nice, seats on a plane were comfortable and the views from the plane were amazing"
Cons: "If it is possible to change the timing of the departing flight from Beirut."
Pros: "Aegean is an amazing airline that takes you back To flying in the 90's the right way. It hold their staff to be poised and very elegant. The crew staff is friendly and welcoming. From great dinners to delicious snacks its the little details that captivated me and really took me back when flying was luxurious! I would recommend Aegean as a first choice for flying."
Pros: "I wish Aegean flew everywhere. Great service, AMAZING food. Great flight."
Pros: "The plane was clean and the flight smooth."
Cons: "The boarding process was frustratingly disorganized. We had no idea if we were in the right place or why boarding was delayed."
Pros: "service in-flight was very good"
Cons: "we waited at the gate they gave on check-in. we sat forever and then realized that our gate had been changed. they almost didn't let us on the flight because we were last minute. they said they called for us at the previous gate, but we never heard any messages"
Pros: "Flight was great! I was very glad to receive emails about slight time changes. Very good!"
Pros: "Friendly cabin staff"

Pros: "Friendly staff, quick boarding, free meal."
Cons: "Late takeoff, poor legroom."
Pros: "Quick service. Although the gate operation was late in getting started. Plane was ready to go. Not much waiting around once on board."
Cons: "No one at th gate or information at the gate to indicate the flight about 45 minutes before boarding was to commence. I thought I was at a the wrong gate."
Cons: "The airline forced us to pay a large amount at the airport for taking one luggage on an international flight. Kayak booking said that one bag would be included in the Fare rules. It was a classic case of bait and switch and an airline taking advantage of a person once they are at the airport and have no choice but to pay extra."

Good food and snacks available. Could use more leg room Could use newer movies for entertainment

Plane delayed at 22PM

Air France lost my luggage again Its the second time in a week

Pros: "Clean plane , good crew ,"
Cons: "they didn't load my baggage from flight 1 to 2"
Pros: "I like the crew and their service, the food was amazing speacially the vanilla cheese cake desert was on point, loved it. I loved the “my flight “interaction on the screen and the different view of the plane, cockpit view, left, right etc.. amazing feature."
Cons: "The seat could have been much better as far as reclining and space. Overall I loved the flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 4+ hours"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The time. The flight was late for 1 hour. I miss everything and also I get very late to our Airbnb and I was with my family and child"
Pros: "Spacious business class seats, excellent meals"
Cons: "Lack of ventilation in cabin, and staff refusal to turn heaters down (in September), very limited entertainment options."
Pros: "Great crew and entertainment. Terrible experience at CDG airport but that’s the airports fault."
Cons: "We didn’t travel to Detroit... we were re-routed 3 times and our luggage is lost, some really helpful ppl along the way (thankfully) and some really crummy ppl too... no in between... still not to our destination"
Cons: "The craft is a bit old. Harsh landing."
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Food could be better, or at least be provided an option to purchase an upgraded meal. Also, insufficient amount of drinking water provided to passengers."
Cons: "Seat was super uncomfortable. Could not fit in my legs at all, could not recline it enough. Maybe sufficient for a one hour flight, definitely not on an intercontinental flight."
Pros: "The flight departed on time and arrived early. The crew were all courteous and kind even to the man who was sitting next to me who seemed quite demanding."
Cons: "I am small but the seats seemed a bit too tight. The plane itself seemed a bit outdated."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "boarding wasn't good."
Pros: "Great seat. Comfortable. Quick boarding."
Cons: "Asked flight attendant to wake me for breakfast....forgot. Long wait for bathroom,"
Cons: "Air conditioning too cold. Wasn't offered an evening meal. My luggage went missing and I'm still waiting for it to be delivered."
Pros: "Intranet meant I could watch movies on my iPad"
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Food was ok."
Cons: "Very little room in economy class. For a 6'1" person, it's impossible to get comfortable."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Food could have been much better in comparison with other airlines."
Pros: "The Air France service was ok. Got me to my destination on time and alive."
Cons: "I flew out on KLM on what felt like a new plane. Amazing service, seat, temperature, entertainment and food. In stark comparison Air France’s plane was old, too hot, poor entertainment choices and system and average food which for the French was surprising!"
Pros: "Not much but the staff"
Cons: "No room, boarding was slow, zero bag or legroom"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The plane (Boeing 777) is packed like a sardines can, with 10 narrow uncomfortable seats across in Economy Class. The crew didn't even bring water for an 1,5 hr into the flight! The plane was very hot, with very little air flowing through the salon. Food was bland for dinner and inedible for breakfast. The crew was barely there, and borderline rude when asked something."
Cons: "Long delays to go through security screening and then further delays as the plane was still being fueled at departure time."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed so we could not make out connecting flight. We had to wait 6 hours get another flight to Atlanta and then fly to Boston the next day, longest flight ever was horrible I called out sick from work too."
Cons: "I didn’t have time to make it through customs. Missed my flight"
Pros: "1. Entertainment - Decent movie selection. I wished the angle of the screen in economy could be adjustable as well. Turkish Air does it better. Once the seat ahead of me reclines I dont have too much hope of saving my eyes from the awkward angles."
Cons: "1. Boarding - Learn from maybe Turkish Air who allocate people zones based on where you are seated in the plane. People seated all the way in the back should be allowed to board first and fill the plane back to front. Makes it less likely for you stand around waiting for people as well people all the way in the back making contact with every possible human already seated in the aisles. 2. Comfort - Window seats are too hot, middle aisle seats are too cold 3. Thankfully they do have halal offering. Now if they will even let me choose that I am allergic to seafood. Glad for the chicken. Nothing to boast about."
Pros: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "Direct flight from Indy to CDG is great. The plane was not so full, so I hope business improves so we can keep it going. Very smooth flight, with good and friendly crew."
Pros: "Staff"
Cons: "We were 2h late"
Pros: ". Budget airline with no legroom or extras"
Cons: "See above. Nothing specific to like."
Pros: "The entertainment screen was a small 4" screen. The movie selection was outdated. The screen in my seat did not work. Flight attendant said she would "call to have it reset" but it never worked. Fortunately, there was an adjacent empty seat that I moved to on my own initiative and without the flight attendant offering a seat change."
Pros: "Comfortable, hospitality and wonderful service"
Pros: "I like traveling with AirFrance in general."
Cons: "Terminal too far to go to loggage, walking about more than two miles after a long trip is not very easy AirFrance should have a better terminal at Charles-de-Gaulle!!! Have some missing stuff in my luggage!!!!"
Pros: "I liked the crew, they were professional and tried their best"
Cons: "The flight was a chartered flight . Air France informed us that due to cabin crew shortage they couldn't operate an air france flight and hence they hired Air Belgium. Whilst the crew were nice , the actual plane was old and creaky. It wasn't up to the standards expected of Air France. They could have done better in getting a plane up to standard. A lot of the passengers were disappointed ."
Pros: "Boarding for BUsiness class was fine. Seating was cramped."
Cons: "As I said in my rating, seating was cramped. Food was mediocre. Crew was pleasant."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 times and when I was finally put on a flight that was leaving, they failed to check the connection in Paris (Left me 10 minutes to get from the aircraft to the other plane!) I was moved to SAA in the end after a truly traumatic time in Johannesburg. This is not the first time I have suffered at the hands of Air France sadly. Needless to say, I wont be booking with Air France again."
Pros: "La entrada"
Cons: "El resto de cosas"
Pros: "Plane was clean. Pilots made up some of departure delay time in the air between NCE & CDG."
Cons: "Unorganized boarding process and minimal info or announcements regarding delay. Failure to respect SkyPriority status at boarding were disappointing. (Staff allowed it to be a bit pushy and chaotic and people were able to force their way in line, ahead of those who had been waiting in line.) Seats were okay but no recline and underseat storage was small. (Backpack wouldn't fit underseat and had to be stored in overhead.) Passengers crowding from back of plane upon arrival made it hard to deplane and felt rude."
Pros: "Nothing... and we were late which made me miss my connecting flight and I wasn’t reimbursed because it was with a different airline"
Cons: "See above and the food was disgusting"
Pros: "Punctual, not crowded."
Cons: "Even though the plane was far from full, passengers were allowed only 1 carry-on item (no personal item), contrary to policy published online by Air France. This policy applied even to people with Economy Premium for the rest of the trip (which allows 2 carry-on suitcases, not a useful feature if one cannot begin with this number to reach the transoceanic flight)."
Pros: "The hostesses were very kind and nice"
Pros: "Short, lots of leg space"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival"
Pros: "Getting there on time despite delay"
Cons: "entertainment had very old media and no recent additions. Crew was not very organized"
Pros: "No delays, service with a smile"
Cons: "Nothing to report."
Cons: "Food was not good."
Cons: "We were rebooked, which understandably happens for any number of reasons. However, we were not informed or asked about our preference until our luggage was checked through! The staff especially in Chicago where we began this awful experience couldn't care less about our situation. Then AIr France lost our luggage and provided no help in locating them. We had to rely on folks who had friends working in Zagreb Airport to locate them. Air France is incompetent, insensitive and unprofessional. If you have an important trip avoid Air France - they treat you like captives not customers."
Pros: "The boarding process was smooth and the crew friendly. Flight ran on time."
Cons: "Unloading the baggage took over 90 minutes, and there was no explanation for the delay and nobody from Air France in sight on the ground in Boston."

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

Everything was good

Letting us know our 8am flight would be 3 hours late, every flight of theirs was late by hours. Seems like it’s the same everyday. We could have slept in another couple hours easily instead of coming to the airport at 6am.

Flight delayed about 45 minutes. Notifications within SSH airport were virtually nonexistent. Had to recognize on our own that our gate was flipped with the next one over. No visible signage changes, no announcements (that we could hear), and both planes boarded simultaneously. Confusing, but we figured it out. Otherwise all was fine.

Cons: "Not losing my luggage"
Pros: "Yes, very clean ,respectable and helpful."
Cons: "A cup of coffee early in the morning would have been magic but, we were told it's a short and fast trip. They served a very nice fresh sandwich and juice."
Cons: "The Business Class lounge was OK, but we were through late at night and there was very little hospitality offered"
Pros: "Boarding was done well and plane was on time."
Cons: "The staff was not very friendly and very lax in prep for take-off and landing."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Crew did their job perfectly. Not particularly warm and friendly, but they are paid to be attentive, not my friend, so I can't complain! Flight was smooth, and quick, meal was pretty good."
Cons: "Not charger ports, or entertainment of any kind."
Cons: "Take of was 1:30 minutes delayed. Entertainment was so bad and boring. Crew were super rude."
Pros: "Very good pilot with landing and takeoff. Crew was ok. Was surprised about the food considering the short trip. Also, they revive silverware for economy class, so that’s definitely a plus"
Cons: "The airplane was a little dirty or outdated shal I say. Entertainment is almost nonexistent."
Cons: "Boarding proceed to improve"
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Yes"
Pros: "Plane in good condition"
Cons: "Seats are tight"
Pros: "they were friendly and amazing"
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: "The crew was amazing and accommodating."
Pros: "We had front seats which made the journey comfortable"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and spoke English."
Cons: "The crew left the meal trays for a long time after serving. It made it difficult for people to get up and go to the bathroom for example."
Cons: "Lagos Cairo flight is very poor and old plane, and we had 2hours delay Cairo Dubai better plane but due to the delay initially another delay in Cairo"
Pros: "They were timely."
Cons: "Poor entertainment, small seats, not enough food or drinks."
Pros: "The way for crew very nice."
Cons: "There is nothing can mention.."
Cons: "We received our baggage 2 days later"
Pros: "Flight was on time and I appreciate that."
Pros: "This flight was on time and I appreciate when Egypt Air flights are on time."
Pros: "This flight was on time and I truly appreciate when EgyptAir flights are on time."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, good food"
Cons: "Delays in boarding, unorganized, some grumpy staff"
Cons: "For this trip, there were no individual screens. All customers had to watch the same movies for a 5 hour trip."
Pros: "Crew was super nice and helpful. Flight schedule was on time."
Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "It took over an hour to check-in. People were pushing in because it was not well marked and nobody directing the people. It was terrible. The plane has very old seats, and no entertainment screen on seats, still the old monitors hanging from the roof."
Pros: "The flight attendant who was in charge of my zone. I occupied seat number 19c business class."
Cons: "Late departure"
Pros: "sincere smile from crew"
Cons: "by force shutting of windows, was boaring"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Very rough landing."
Cons: "Everyone was courteous. And considerate. Like me!"
Cons: "Flight attendant not asking what i'd want like everyone else. Because i look different?!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything very poor business class"
Pros: "Price was affordable . Short layover. Easy and good flight connection."
Cons: "Poor snacks."
Pros: "Great & Friendly Service"
Pros: "Provided lunch on an 1.5 hr flight! I thought that was awesome."
Cons: "No complaints!"
Pros: "Crew were nice, food was good, overall pleasant experience"
Cons: "Boarding was slightly late and so flight was a bit late."
Pros: "The crew was gentle and courteous."
Cons: "I choose to see only positive things."
Cons: "Late - like departure flight to CDG Departing/Arriving on time is consistent EgyptAir weakness"
Pros: "I liked everything about the experience on the actual flight from Cairo to New York. Staff was great, food was great (two meals), drink options were great from juices, sodas, water, tea, coffee all great. the entertainment was awesome with so many movie/tv show options. and you can always get up and ask for a beverage if you were still thirsty, and plenty of toilets on the plane so rarely a line greater than 1 person."
Cons: "They seemed to run out of chicken as the dinner meal, when they got to my the flight to Cairo from NY they also ran out of chicken, the person next to me got the last one, the same thing happened to me on the way to NY, the person next to me got the last chicken, i was kind of upset but the other option of beef was still good."
Cons: "There were announcements about the flight being delayed which were difficult to understand. On announcnent of the boarding procedure, families with children were not given priority and all passengers were called on together raher than by rows (BACK TO FRONT) so boarding could take place without delays!"
Cons: "Old entertainment system, otherwise, everything else was fine"
Pros: "Pilots are excellent at smooth landing."
Cons: "To most Arabs, broadcasting a prayer before taking off is routine and goes without notice. To foreigners, it could initiate fear about the safety of the plane as it projects a need to rely on a super power to make it. It's cultural and could be misunderstood."
Cons: "i need a refund. our flight back to NYC from dubai was rescheduled with significant delays such that it would affect our jobs. We decided to book a return flight via qatar and we need a refund for this booking"
Pros: "Overall the flight was good. The boarding process became a bit hectic in Joburg and arriving in Cairo was a mess too. Our baggage took too long to arrive on the belt and people were still waiting for their luggage after I had gotten mine. No one from EgyptAir told us anything which confused us even more. Next time have more organization and communication with passengers."
Pros: "Accurate time of departure and landing. Excellent and generous service. Cheap price. 62 kg weight allowed. Comfortable business class."
Cons: "Nothing at all, except that the flight did not have wifi because of to the model of the plane. I suggest that Egyptair find some way to have wifi on its all flights."
