Food has poor quality and taste Entertainment system is very slow responding

4 hours late. This after already traveling for 20 hours. It was simply miserable, and simply typical. What is wrong with the air industry right now?

Very old flight

Cons: "Three hours departure delay from Munich to SFO"
Cons: "Server was mean"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and attentive, I really like the food on Lufthansa"
Cons: "The movie selection was limited and dated"
Pros: "It was really nice having the bassinet for our little one."
Cons: "My wife encountered a rude attendant after simply getting up and asking for water."
Pros: "Boarding was easy. Flight attendants were so attentive in Premium Economy. Entertainment choices were excellent. There was a USB charging port on the back of the seat. All good!"
Pros: "The crew were very considerate. Also they have the best baby beds we have seen so far"
Cons: "The entertainment system was glitchy."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "Lounge was very clean"
Cons: "In a 10 hours flight Frankfurt to Atlanta only one main meal. Service was rushed job. My seat wasn’t working and Tv remote didn’t work."
Pros: "The meals were very good!"
Pros: "Great ride in a big plane!"
Cons: "Flight was late and it seemed like every time we turned a corner we had to go through security again! Leg room in economy must be very difficult for a tall person...no leg room!"
Pros: "Height Space, good pilot and some of the food. Good landing and overall pilot skill."
Cons: "For the whole journey I had a small child kicking, knocking, tapping behind me. Kept waking me up also nearly ten hours of whining. I was genuinely uneasy and uncomfortable for the whole trip. I think there should be a designated child with adult area as I really don’t think this is acceptable. It is stressful enough traveling for 30+ hours this really is not welcome."
Pros: "Can I say basically everyyyyyything. The meals were amazing with respect to taste and the timeliness of them. The crew was extremely courteous and kind"
Cons: "Just typically being on a plane not much can do about the space in economy"
Pros: "impressed with the food and service of the crew"
Cons: "too crowded for too long baggage was damageed not sure who was responsible"
Pros: "Easy. Clean. Friendly. Helpful with food allergies concerns."
Cons: "That we had to pay extra fee to reserve our seats"
Pros: "Everything. Food, drinks and entertainment was great. The crew are amazing. Great flight. Pilot kept us informed of everything with delay of serving food due to turbulence."
Cons: "How long it takes you to get to Germany! But they have no control over that."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "So much more comfortable to sit and sleep on such a long flight. Worth every penny!"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "when seats recline in economy you can barely get in and out of a seat"
Pros: "Staff were polite Comfort ok Food was basic No entertainment."
Cons: "no tv and long flight. Food was terrible."
Pros: "Flight attendants friendly and professional. Like the use of warm towels. Most overseas airlines no longer do this"
Pros: "The boarding process is very efficient."
Cons: "Lufthansa’s people are mostly good. But there are some obvious opportunities for people to be more friendly. Also, LH like many others continues to serve cold rolls and cold butter on international flights. KLM warms the rolls! It’s the one small touch that would make Lufthansa’s meal service so much nicer."
Cons: "For a transatlantic flight, boarding was one mass stampede, seats were hard as a rock, tight, media "touch" screen had to be punched to work, worst selection of entertainment film & TV show options I can remember for an overseas flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed want to take off. Luggage did not transfer. Four days before luggage will get to us."
Pros: "The crew were amazing!"
Cons: "I had to pay extra for "out of sequence" booking as I wasn't able to catch the flight out of Manchester to Athens. so i booked a different flight the next day to a different airline. Lufthansa canceled my booking as I didn't take my outbound flight, when they found the booking, they asked me to pay extra. Such a waste of money! Although, the crew on the plane were really good!"
Pros: "no problems"
Cons: "everything worked"
Pros: "exception service! Night and day difference from my flight with United. THANK YOU!!!"
Cons: "I had to endure 10 hours sitting next to an obese passenger, who was to big to fit into his seat and had to rest his shoulder and elbow over my seat. The crew couldn't do much and so I had to shift myself sideways for the entire journey in order to make space for this obese passenger to rest his arm into and over my seat."
Cons: "They had overbooked the flight and asked to reroute me. I asked if I would still be able to get to my destination at the same time and to make sure I would have a window seat. Everything from the moment I said yes was a terrible. They rebooked me twice on two different routes when I was in the air. Said a steward would meet me (never happened) instead I was running to catch flights on different airlines in two different airports. The entire situation was disgusting. The running was with all of my luggage. Because of the rebooking I was in the last row of 75 rows on a plane with an additional connection. Every flight had delays creating more chaos for the next flight. The only helpful airline in the bunch was Delta."
Pros: "Crew friendly, good food"
Cons: "Cramped seating, can't select seat until checkin without paying (only airline we were unable to select seat)"
Pros: "This was one of the most aggravating flights. I had a connection. Both flights were delayed and i had to run through the enormous frankfurt with my carry on cat. When i got to the next flight it was delayed 30mins and there were little updates. When i arrived in oslo i was late and so missed my connecting train. I had to wait 6 hours in the station for the next train. An exhausting and frustrating experience. There was one helpful steward on the lax frankfurt flight but the rest of the staff was not helpful."
Pros: "TV & movie selection, food and drinks were great! staff was friendly and there seemed to be a bit more room between seats!"
Pros: "Service, crew, entertainment"
Cons: "Seats are too tight"
Pros: "Crew, food and enterteintment were good"
Cons: "Boarding was to messy, sits were extremely tight, cabin was too warm and sits does not reclined enough to make a comfortable sleep time"
Pros: "SAS and BA can do better"
Pros: "Again, excellent customer service. Can't say enough."
Pros: "The whole flight went in time and all was well..."
Cons: "But when we got to Barcelona we had to wait 40 mins to get off the plane and another 2 hours to get our luggage. The baggage handlers went on strike."
Pros: "Excellent Flight"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The crew was perfect - nice and very helpful. I like the restroom area on this plane much better than on other kinds of aircraft."
Cons: "I definitely didn't like how Lufthansa online booking assigns seats. Why are family members who booked their tickets as one order getting seats apart from each other even after online check-in and seat selection? We had a very bad experience with this."
Pros: "Still loads of leg room in economy which is great for a tall person like myself."
Cons: "The food, dinner and breakfast from Johannesburg to Frankfurt was not very nice and not the usual good standard."
Cons: "The seat in front of mine was reclined in the already cramped space provided, twice as far back as any other seat I could see. Please look into the recline on that seat for future passengers. The crew hit my seat, repeatedly with their carts and did not remember to offer drinks to us as they pushed it by. The airlines should consider removing that seat as an option to passengers if there is not ample room for the flight crew to maneuver around it. It made for an unpleasant experience overall."
Pros: "The food tasted really good and especially the bread was much more appealing than on our previous flight. The flight attendants were very efficient and attentive. I liked that they asked the person in front of me to put his seat up during the meal time. That helped me eat more comfortably. Entertainment options were extensive."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed and was tedious. It took forever because there was not an orderly line and just a jumble of people. We had to show our passports 3 different times between check in and boarding. People had put their passports away, then had to get them out again at the gate. That slowed everything down to a crawl. Our party was not accommodated when we asked for seats together. My husband and I were separated and we were separated from our kids. The ground crew did not seem to care. Take off was delayed, but the captain never told us why. The guy in front of me reclined his seat the whole time. I felt like a sardine in a can. So uncomfortable!"
Pros: "Entertainment."
Cons: "Staff was extremely sassy and unhelpful when I had been traveling for 40 hours."
Pros: "Nothing, the anounced railway wagon wasn't availabel"
Cons: "I lost my luggage at Frankfurt Airport due to poor information policy of Lufthansa - so at first hand they didn´t inform Copa Airlines that there is no luggage check out at Stuttgart Railway Station any more for years now. In Stuttgart the lost-and-found office have changed since 2 weeks to an other company and they didn`t inform the headquarter in Ffm. about that, so that they rep gave me the wrong phone- and email-numbers. Finally I had to drive the next day to Stuttgart Airport to claim my lost luggage at Ffm Airport."
Pros: "Very prompt, good food. We encourage trip very much!"
Pros: "that I could board at all"
Cons: "that my original flight was cancelled without being given a reason"

Entertainment is non existent on the new 737 Max800

Food could be better and there was no entertainment on the 737 Max 800 for a 4.5 hour flight, surely this can be sorted

I was surprised that I was put in first class the whole way! Thank you SO MUCH for such a blessing!

Pros: "Excellent airline overall Great seats for sleeping"
Cons: "Business class seats are not well appointed Nowhere to put a bottle of water - storage handbag and shoes etc could not be reached without undoing the seatbelt and screen far away from the seat Voice commentary was muffled and therefore unable to be heard"
Pros: "Staff are friendly and pleasant. Seats are comfortable with more space than some airlines.Good choice of films."
Cons: "This was probably the worst boarding I have ever seen. They called the Paris flight while people were still boarding for Frankfurt. It was chaotic, with people struggling to find which line to be in. There was no visible guidance from Ethiopian ground crew. Eventually got in line. One guy checking boarding passes for both business and economy. Very slow with again no crowd control. Children were not given priority. Eventually many people went through business queue while others had been waiting in economy. Ground staff were standing around watching and not helping or communicating. Poor show from Ethiopian!"
Pros: "Leg space, TV screen and entertainment and the decline of the seat."
Cons: "The toilets floors could be cleaned often. The food service cart could move for urgent pass to the toilet."
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: "Cheap fare, no frills."
Cons: "Too hot, crew isn’t friendly (could be cultural difference), jam packed flight with tons of small children so was unlikely to ever be super pleasant."
Pros: "Everything was on time, high quality, and enjoyable"
Cons: "There was a fight on the llane but it was because a passenger with mental issues was provoked by a couple so ahe beat up the wife. This was not caused by ET and crew at all, but they stopped it."
Cons: "I've been flying Ethiopian airlines over the last four weeks to nine African countries and can give an overall excellent rating. They're always on time. They however showed the same movie on all flights. The food quality and variety also need to be improved. Thanks"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Good not that great - a suggestion - why not something like fresh bread (sandwiches) with cheese and tomato on it - bread often not so fresh"
Pros: "Flight attendants were helpful and attentive."
Cons: "Boarding was fairly chaotic, there were no outlets for charging in the business class, entertainment limited."
Pros: "The food served is awesome and sufficient. The flights are comfortable and the crew are friendly. My luggage came right on time and was properly handled"
Cons: "Well there was no entertainment in the flight. That is it"
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."
Cons: "Everything."
Pros: "Aircraft A350 super nice entertainment t equipment and interior very clean."
Cons: "Lost my luggage, could not trace it and no compensation."
Pros: "The plane is spacious lost of leg room"
Cons: "can improve on the food"
Pros: "Great Price Excellent dinner in economy for such a short flight (1.45) Quick, friendly service"
Cons: "Entertainment System is a tad bit outdated on this particular aircraft (737-8) but it was a shorthaul flight and their long haul flights have much better option. \ My seat - although in the exit row (with plenty of leg room) was uncomformable"
Pros: "The hospitality"
Pros: "I like the entertainment,but the quality is not quite good in Amharic part."
Cons: "The food is very bad."

Cons: "I sent them an email about an issue with my flight but they didn't get back to me"
Pros: "The flight was on time and they fed us well."
Cons: "Nothing really."
Cons: "Chairs were not reclining. Asked for blanket and didn't get one so I was cold."
Pros: "Cabin crew were all charming."
Cons: "Unfortunately, I had to request earphones (which were not supplied in the seat pocket in front of me) five times from three different attendants over the course of an hour and a quarter before I was given them. This was not just so I could watch a movie but because the quality of the plane's public address system made it very difficult to listen to the announcements from the captain and the crew. Listening on earphones I was able to hear everything clearly. Why it had to take so long just to give me earphones I don't know."
Pros: "Great prices, and helpful staff"
Cons: "The food was mediocre, almost poor."
Pros: "Excellent chicken dish"
Pros: "When I originally booked this trip it was with one connection and a 16 hour commute time. They added legs to my trip which significantly increased travel time. I tried to cancel my flight because I booked the flight with the necessity of arriving by specific days and times and they insisted on charging me for it so I just forfeited my seat and trip all together. There's nothing good to say about Ethiopian airlines."
Cons: "They are very unprofessional and unhelpful and I'll never book them again."
Cons: "Crew was not friendly and seemed to ignore my requests. Seat was not comfortable. Food was okay."
Pros: "Nothing"

Cons: "Not enough water. The water is doled out in small cups."
Cons: "Seats were dirty"

Pros: "The food and the crew were nice. The entertainment would go in and out, with the buttons malfunctioning at times."
Cons: "Started boarding 4 hours after scheduled departure. Though there was bad weather, our departure was still delayed way past the "adverse weather" conditions at the airport. In the 4 hours we were in Washington, there was no communication whatsoever. No one to inform us of us potentially missing our ADD to JHB connecting flight. None of the workers wanted to help us."
Cons: "- terrible food and no snacks provided - Crew was attentive and fairly kind - bathrooms were cleaned but could have improved on the amount of times it was cleaned - poor air circulation"
Pros: "Would have liked to have seen more of the cabin crew, but they were pleasant."
Cons: "Food choice was limited. Ethiopian often ran out of meals and just gave me whatever option they had left. Entertainment system didn't always work properly."
Pros: "They made sure we had plenty to eat"
Cons: "My entertainment system didn't work."
Pros: "Dreamliner was awesome"
Cons: "Horrible food selection, needs improvement"
Pros: "flight left on time otherwise nothing noteworthy outstanding to mention"
Cons: "- poor food (as usual) - no inflight entertainment (as usual) - no priority boarding"
Cons: "Connecting though Beijing from Taipei to LAX is not recommended if you can avoid it!"
Cons: "Air China Service was horrible. I missed my flight due to an accident and when I got to the airport they were rude, and did not try to give me a solution. I had no money and I did not speak the language and the only solution they gave me was to call costumer service with the coins I have left. I will never fly with Air China again and I hope the rest of the people do the same. Horrible horrible experience."
Pros: "Setvice"

Cons: "Better resolution for the monitors on the Air China screens."

Cons: "Seats could be bigger and more comfortable like their alliance partners ANA, Asiana and Eva."
Pros: "They are OK. I was trying to do on line checkin it was not working. when you wait for any kind of life in Chinese airport I noticed so many Chinese customers were cut in the standing line and all the air plane staff was not care with this. I had to wait so much extra time."
Cons: "Our flight was delay for at least 15 hours this time. they didn't have knowledge to do customer service with this kind of case. They had to wait 2 hours at international transfer area every one was very patient with their service. I never buy ticket from Air China again."
Pros: "Flawless flight, comfortable seating for me."

Pros: "Movie selection"
Cons: "Not having carts crashed into your knees"
Pros: "crew are very nice, although we took off late in Beijing. we arrived on time in LAX. lots of legroom on this flight for a 5 foot tall lady. the previous airplane barely fits my 5 foot frame."

Pros: "The food was good."
Cons: "Could have usb outlets for devices. Connecting flight could have arrived on time. Airline don’t lose your luggage."

Cons: "Food tastes horrible. Flight attendant picked her nose at one time right before distributing the drinks and did not wash her hands. You're not given your own canned drink rather a half a cup. Seats are too small/don't look clean. Movie selection was poor. Plane was delayed! Luggage left in Bejing."

Cons: "They added 10 hours to my scheduled layover and would not give me lounge access for the inconvenience."
Cons: "Had to stop at another city due to weather and technical difficulties. Ended up not sleeping a whole night trying to find my new flight. Staff after we landed in city was not able to communicate what was happening & what to do well. Though thru this mix up, staff on plane and comfort was exceptional. Would fly air China again but they need to be more prepared for situations that might arise more better."
Pros: "They tried their best to accomodate but didn't do much to make everyone feel treated well."
Cons: "Flight changed three times with different times. In the end we were delayed for 5 hours and missed connecting flights. They offered a $15 food voucher and forced people to sleep together in a hotel room since they refused to let people who came alone have their own room. They rebooked and made it a complete waste of a vacation day while we wait to board a new flight in the middle of the afternoon."
Cons: "Bad food choice"
Pros: "Crew was helpful and polite"
Cons: "Food was terrible compared to other airlines in the region and the entertainment options were limited."

Cons: "As usual, delayed."
Pros: "The crew, the boarding, the plane and the food were all fine."
Cons: "The plane just did not take off for 2 hours. I missed my connection flight and have to wait at the airport for additional 24 hours. Very exhausting and unpleasant experience."
Cons: "We arrived half an hour late to Beijing and had a connecting flight to Helsinki, the crew didn't help me at all to go out faster or to know how to get to my next flight."
Pros: "We got to move to the front of economy which gave us more legroom which we needed."
Cons: "They changed planes on us and we lost our upgraded “premium economy” seats."
Pros: "Better customer service"
Cons: "Air China staff need to better understand and learn how to talk to people."
Pros: "it was an inexpensive flight"
Cons: "No one would speak to us as to when we were boarding to let us know. The plane was older. Entertainment was limited. My wife's television was stuck on the map the entire 15 hour flight. Never been on an international flight that didn't have wifi but oh well, whatever. I had put in request several times for my wife's dietary restrictions as a vegetarian of which was never responded to and the only option was meat in all courses during the flight."
Pros: "The flight had a comfortable amount of people so ther was extra room. Food was decent."
Cons: "The plane was new and clean at the beginning of the flight. It was a sty after. Flight attendants don’t pick up garbage regularly and service is lacklustre"
Pros: "Entertainment and service was very good."
Cons: "3 hour delay and no information on updates/reason. Switched seats so people could sit together then small child behind me kicked my seat throughout most of the flight. It made for a terrible time and wasn’t stopped."
Pros: "Timeliness of the flight, good decent meals and most important, best and cheapest fare."
Cons: "No leg room, crappy toilets, rush between changing flights, as there was very little changing time"
Pros: "safe flight, nice attendants"
Cons: "would like more room and better movies and better food for such a long flight"
Pros: "Boarding is smooth, organized"
Cons: "Both flights from SFO to Beijing and from Beijing to SGN all are delayed, both at the gate and taxi out, food is very basic nothing fancy about it, same goes with drink, and in fact I don't expect much from them. I hope they will learn and compete with other asian airlines in the region, like Eva Air, or Singapore airlines."
Cons: "Held my bag for two days, No explanation, apparently just wanted to rummage through it. Stranded in Mongolia with no clean clothes or medication."
Pros: "I like the food. It was good. the flight from Vietnam to China was ok, it was on time."
Cons: "I don't like the wifi in China."
Cons: "delay for 4 hours from JFK to peking, then we missed connecting flight. We can't find our luggage and services is horrible."
Pros: "The crew were attentive, kind, and polite. The food was decent."
Cons: "The flight was very turbulent (obviously that's not their fault) but I wish they had communicated a bit better about why it was so turbulent. My bag was lost when I finally arrived at my final destination. I think there was some miscommunication in Okinawa about what I needed to do with my bag. I told them my final destination, so assumed it would be fine, but apparently it was my fault somehow that the bag was lost."
Cons: "I could nos use my phone even though I took off the SIM card I did not get a good explanation"
Pros: "The professionalism of the crew was fantastic! The flight attendants did their best to ensure everyone was well hydrated and fed."
Cons: "The seats were extremely cramped for a 6hr flight and the touchscreen used for entertainment wasn't functioning. Air china typically serves some pretty decent food but this time it felt like I was eating some sort of slime posing as beef. I also noticed some Air china flights heat the rolls and others leave them cold. The salad was also frozen solid."
Cons: "Entertainment system mostly included Chinese movies and TV shows and almost none in English which makes no sense."
Pros: "Stuff was friendly and provide newspaper in English. The food was good and served promptly. The flight departs and arrived on time."
Cons: "We were not be able to find our luggage on carousal. Because we spent a lot of time to get through passport control it was servicing other airline. The place to ask the question about the luggage has been closed. Finally in almost 2 hours with help of baggage floor service man we found it with some others people luggage."
Pros: "The crew was very polite. Always available if you need them."
Cons: "The boarding process is kinda chaotic. And you have to take a bus to the plane and enter the plane from a ground staircase."
Cons: "Every time the entertainment was paused for an announcement, it turned the volume WAY up, so loud that it hurt my ears and every time i had to tear the earphones off. I understand not wanting to let people mute the announcements, but minimum volume should be around 30-40%, not 70%"
Pros: "I was able to get a window seat. The crew was friendly and attentive. I fell asleep when they were distributing food and beverages and the stewardess kept an eye out for when I was waking up to ask if I need anything."
Cons: "Air china did not have enough crew to manage the flight. They didn't offer self check in at any kiosk, and they only opened airport check in 2 hours prior to the flight. The lines were out of control. Korean air had to come and assist, which was a good thing because they were much more friendly than the air china staff."
