Best inflight service ever

Read more about Singapore Airlines

Best inflight service ever

Food was tired and tasteless. In past, pre COVID, out of Singapore, in-flight food was fresh and tasty.

Baggage got lost

The most I like from Singapore airlines is the food comparing to other airlines. Also found a good movie to watch. Sometimes it's difficult to find an interesting movie on many airlines.

Excellent service, the food was delicious and the inflight entertainment full of options for varied taste.

The staff and service of SIngapore Airlines is hard to beat. They are excellent. If they could only figure out their call center fiasco it would be a top airline. Attempting to call SQ is like trying to talk to the dead.

Pros: "Crew could have been less rude"
Pros: "I loved that the airline offered several meals, snack options and drinks. The attendants were amazing and would highly recommend Singapore airlines to anyone flying internationally"
Cons: "The limited arm room/personal space. Not much leg room in economy for a 10 hour flight. Would be nice if airlines would decrease the number of seats and give a little more room so people aren’t hitting each other in the head with their arms"
Pros: "I liked that on the longest leg of my trip - I had an entire row to myself to stretch out. Im old, things like that are important...along with compression socks...haha!"
Cons: "I think the food - I dont know exactly what, because we're on a plane - but I think it could be a bit more appealing? More greens, colors? Not sure, but it was okay."
Pros: "Great seating"
Cons: "Free internet in long flights"
Pros: "Crew , amenities and food"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Newer Aircraft and very convenient"
Cons: "I dont see any thing to improve"
Pros: "Crew is attentive to our needs"
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "Crew was okay"
Cons: "Did not get the food I chose. Seats were not clean and clumsy"
Pros: "Good boarding, good arrival gate"
Cons: "Old plane, entertainment system is very old and screen bad"
Cons: "The layover in Singapore was a nightmare with insufficient hotel accommodation, nothing but Asian food and overly officious security staff."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Boarding was just ok, but departure delayed by half hour. Seats were really poor. Zero comfort.. felt like sitting on a cramped park bench. Entertainment system is ancient. Can't see and can't listen properly. Didn't expect this type of horrible aircraft from Singapore Airlines!"
Pros: "Everything on time and smooth. Great service. Great pillows and. Plenti snacks anytime I want it. Very comfortable seats. Entertainment System fabulous."
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "food"
Pros: "Quick boarding. Great entertainment system Good staff"
Cons: "Not comfortable seats"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "What can I say about a flight of this length? Its always an epic journey to go from the US to Asia. However I will say that with Singapore Airlines things are a lot easier. Excellent crew who were always willing to help with my fondness for a beer. Food was as expected and up to the standard of Singapore Airlines. All round it was a long trip made a lot easier......5 stars."
Cons: "We were not provided vegetarian food on two legs of journey although we had earlier informed the airlines."
Pros: "Most everything"
Cons: "Crying babies made it tough to sleep the whole flight"
Pros: "Love the promptness of services, always with a smile!"
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Able to check luggage in 48 hrs before flight saving $50 storage fees, so went back into CBD for the day."

Pros: "friendly staff top Service top Inflight"
Cons: "new aircraft, 2 x usb charging ports, 50+ movies, very quiet aircraft."
Pros: "Excellent"
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "I purchased this ticket without realizing that the law stipulated 6-month validity remaining on one's US passport to enter singapore. The Singapore Airways website does not state this anywhere, and it was not until I arrived at the airport that I was informed that I wouldn't be able to check in, but nor could I refund or transfer the ticket. The booker should be obliged, when one enters the passport information upon purchasing the ticket, to make note if the passport expiration time is not valid for the flight. Spent $600+ on the flight, and the customer service person I spoke to from the airport was very abrasive and not interested in helping me figure out an alternative."
Cons: "Seats were bit hard without proper head rest.entertainment kiosk was not working."
Pros: "Food was good"
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "New movies! Yes!"
Cons: "I asked for one of the crew to help me bring up my carry-on luggage, as i'm just recovering from a flu at that time. Instead the FA looked at my bag and asked me in an irritated tone if my bag was really that heavy? I said I was recovering and I just need an extra push once I lift it up into the cabin. In the end she did help but i did not appreciate her attitude and felt disappointed my whole flight."
Pros: "The trend to offer more comfort in Economy Plus and similar leads, of course to less comfort in normal Economy class. The ticket price was certainly attractive but it is doubtful that it was good value. Economy Plus might not be good value either."
Cons: "Barely enough legspace. Some seats recline more than others, if you're sitting behind one of those you're out of luck."
Pros: "The food was excellent for Vegan meals. The staff was friendly and attentive. The ability to see the flight path, air speed and such is very nice."
Cons: "The entertainment was not the kind of shows I like. Never mind, I see the flight path and orher flight particulars."
Pros: "Good reliable SQ service"
Cons: "I got the seat with communications box on the floor under the seat in front... no foot room :-("
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and good service."
Pros: "Food, movies, support, were all wonderful."
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Old planes and screens."

Cons: "Nothing negative to report"
Pros: "Attention to detail, good leg room, entertainment options and a brand new plane"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Professionalism and friendliness of crew"
Cons: "Seat not great for my length even though it was business class"
Pros: "The service is amazing. The stewardess are always smilin and very helpful. If you'd like anything extra, just ask and they'll bring it right over. The entertainment onboard was top notch"
Cons: "I would have wished for better back supported seats. 14hrs on a flight isn't quiet the best."
Pros: "Excellent crew service and entertainment."

Why do they not let Business class passengers board first?

Airport staff are good but no signage to help incoming passengers unless you know the airport in Doha.

Ground staff at bangalore are very helpful

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: "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: "Everything was very good and comfortable. I really enjoyed my journey. Thanks."
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: "Attentive and efficient"
Pros: "Great crew and food. Nice economy class."
Pros: "Nice crew, 1 hr free WiFi"
Cons: "Significant delay on jetway, temps uncomfortable,"
Pros: "The crew were great and served food timely. The seats were also comfortable and we traveled with infant. The crew was super supportive for parents with infant."
Cons: "dont falsely claim that you have wifi if you cannot connect to satellite. The ground staffs needs training on behavior and how to treat infants."
Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "I found my seat a bit uncomfortable for this leg of the jurney"
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."
Cons: "Did not make this flight."
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: "No proper meal provided"
Cons: "PROPER comfort zone not provided at all"
Pros: "Fantastic service, very friendly staff who are always happy to help"
Cons: "Should have internet free of charge in flight"
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Need good wheel chair service."
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: "The service from check-in till landing was on the ball and superb. They were friendly and eager to assist with everything. They have the latest movies and shows to watch on their in-flight entertainment."
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 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: "Friendly staff. Good food."
Cons: "Unlike my flight from US to Qatar, this flight was outdated and their video streaming touch device was old."
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: "Cramped"
Pros: "Excellent Service"
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Hard cushioning and narrow seats on the 787"
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"
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"

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: "A bit too small the seats"
Pros: "Absolutely friendly Professional"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Crew, interior, seats"
Cons: "Food was average. Service could be better. For example, my wife and I never got our food at the same time or close enough. We had to ask for food or drinks. They should regularly ask if we need something. Empty water bottles (up to 3) were sitting on my table for hours till we landed."
Pros: "Easy booking on line"
Cons: "The gate was changed in Dubai without informing the passengers whom waiting on the original gate printed on the boarding pass. And charged me no show fees and delayed for an extra 12 hrs. I have the evidence of you need them."
Pros: "The crew was nice, and there was sufficient overhead space for my bag."
Cons: "I've flown hundreds of times, and this was the most most unpleasant flight I've ever taken. My seat didn't recline, the entertainment console was not working properly, and I had almost no legroom due to the design of the seat. The temperature was unbearably hot. And I didn't get my special meal."
Pros: "crew was good but seat was too narrow, and there are too many little kids near us."

Pros: "I say that everything was good but overall "excellent" because it is hard to fly for hours upon hours and say that it was excellent. All considered, it was good while Emirates (compared to other carriers) is excellent. These huge airplanes are amazing!"
Cons: "Flying for hours upon hours but nobody can do anything about that. Africa has a routine, including this flight, of filling the cabin full of chemicals - for insects? Prepare to cover your head and face!"
Pros: "The comfortable seats, the entertainment system, the food, the attention given by the flight attendants. A great airline!"
Cons: "The length of the flight, but that's unavoidable."
Pros: "Space and the fact that everything worked. Food was excellant."
Cons: "I always like Emirates."
Pros: "The food and entertainment were good and the seats were relatively comfortable. And they provide headphones but..."
Cons: "The crew didn't warn us that they would be collecting the Emirates provided headphones during their final "prepare for landing" check of the cabin... so I was near the end of a movie and sans headphones! WTF? And because the fasten seat belt sign was on in preparation for landing, I couldn't fish through my carry on in the overhead compartment to find the ones I'd brought.

Cons: "Overall the trip was good except in the Dubai airport. The people were not friendly and was not responding properly."
Pros: "The wrap-around head rests help with sleeping. The good size blanket was comfortable and kept me warm. I really liked the bigger entertainment screen and excellent choice of movies and TV programs. I've never had 'Homes International' and 'Don't tell the Bride' on any flights, which are favorites of mine and are very popular.. I fly on 16 flights/year domestic and international. The flight attendants were very pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "It was a bit too cold. I was in row 50 on the aisle. I am vegetarian so was pleasantly surprised with the fish curry being on the menu, but couldn't see or taste the fish. A bit disappointing."

Pros: "The planes are comfortable and the crew are all very nice and helpful! I had not read the carry-on baggage restrictions well and my bag ended up being just a little too big so it had to be checked. Although it wasn't a good situation for me, it was my fault and I appreciate that you hold to your policy!"
Pros: "Was impressed with the entertainment, informative and comfortable"
Cons: "It is imperative that the crew insures that the safety measures and instructions are adhered to... But I must say it wasn't so... For instance a passenger in my ile was busy on the phone while we were preparing for for take off... And he wasn't the only one... Unfortunetly... Safety before all... Thank you...

They blame it on the TSA and say it has to fit in and asked us to pay 325 $ to take the same bag that they brought things in."

Pros: "Comfortable flight with smooth transit."

Cons: "Despite plane not being full, crew seemed to have difficulty serving meals."
Pros: "The food was pretty good for airline meals. We really made good use of the entertainment system which had many great movies and a kids interactive touchscreen. This entertainment system made the flight! Boarding was quick and easy and the ammenty packagfes (eye covers headphones socks ear plugs etc.) and a kids activity book was also great."
Pros: "That we arrived safely"
Cons: "The seat in the exit aisle was too upright and very uncomfortable. After paying for the exit row seat I expected a more comfortable chair. We were stuck in Abu Dhabi for nearly 2 hours on the runway waiting for take off even though all passengers boarded early."
Cons: "Salty food"
Cons: "Etihad would not put me on an early flight despite having free seats on the plane. As a result of which I had a 7.5hour layover in Abu Dhabi. If they had moved me to the earlier flight, it would have left a lasting impression on me. I am looking to join a new loyalty program (from Lufthansa) and this gesture could have gone a long way."
Cons: "Crew doesn't interact with the passengers at all. They act very snooty."
Pros: "Flight took off on time and arrived early. This is so important when we have connecting flights that are about one hour away from arrival time."
Cons: "There was nothing not to like. Great service"
Pros: "Flight was comfortable and the staff was attentive and friendly. The food was goiod and the seat spacious and comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding was chaos in Abu Dhabi. Business class passengers were not given priority boarding and were forced to stand in long ques in the heat and to be squeezed into a bus with all the others. This happened both in my outbound and return flights. This meant queing in the heat out on the tarmac with the economy passengers."
Pros: "Food and upkeep of aircraft"
Cons: "Your association with Aer Lingus"
Pros: "Entertainment choices were good."
Cons: "Food was not up to par. It was quite dry. Like the curry served in vegetarian meal was very dry."
Pros: "good food, good wine, flight on time, large and good choice on films, early boarding. having a free shuttle to and from Dubai is amazing."
Cons: "entertainement not available before take off is very frustrating. it means one hour on board without using our screen. also quite not sure why it stops working 30 mn before landing. many companies make it work throughout all stay on board."
Pros: "The Inbound flight service to India was okay"
Cons: "It was standard domestic business class seat, not a pod. Also had 2 screaming kids. Windows were dirty so hard to see out."
Pros: "I have flown around the world on almost every major airline and Etihad is the best by far."
Cons: "I wanted to check in my bags early but wasted time and money because I was not able to check in my bags until 4 hours before the flight."
Cons: "There was no jet bridge facility for entering into the aircraft. We had to carry our carry on luggage to aircraft via Bus. Etihad needs to ensure the traveler's comfort all the way up to their end destination and not till Doha."

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!

This flight the air was on, for a change, and we were comfortable. It was not full and the staff got us water, when needed. Bathroom cleanliness is an issue. Maybe more visual signs in the bathroom will help passengers who can’t read keep it clean? Also no toilet seat covers.

Pros: "The crew was awesome"
Cons: "Figure out how to shorten flight"
Pros: "Amazing friendly crew. Spot on entertainment!!!"
Cons: "Toilet facilities could have been cleaner"
Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Good"
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Cons: "They need to improve on thier inflight menu and the check-in and boarding experience"
Pros: "They an amazing crew"
Cons: "They need to improve on the flight check-in and boarding at thier airport in Bole, it is so messy. Also thier inflight menu is nothing special"
Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "Entertainment is non existent. Plane is tatty."
Pros: "The crew was okay, though a little bit occupied and thus ignoring some of the customers' requests. The seats are comfortable and spacious with enough leg room"
Cons: "The food could have been better. Honestly much better"
Pros: "The short flight and pleased to get food."
Cons: "A very lengthy boarding process and the inevitable delay of an hour. Not good when it's already a late night flight. No entertainment console. Quite cramped"
Cons: "Flight attendants where bothered to serve us beer, water or any other snack during he flight. I had to beg in both occasions to have my tray taken from my seat."
Pros: "so good and comfortable"
Cons: "the plane was old though."
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"
Cons: "Old flight - equipments were not in order like the handrest was broken, TV’s were broken and not functioning, touch screens failed to react to touch, signs on buttons at the handrest were smudged. 3 out of 6 washrooms in Economy class were not working. At one instance I was locked in the washroom as the door was not opening from inside, until I had to call the attendant. Entertainment options were limited. Food was below average. In one of my meals I got opened and melted butter. Cabin crew was not responding to the calls when I needed water. I finally got it after ringing 4 bells and 45 minutes. Overall, a terrible experience and would not choose to fly with Ethiopian again."
Cons: "We had requested vegetarian meals, which were not provided on either leg of the Ethiopian Airlines flight. In addition, we had to pay an extra baggage fee and the payment process required us to wait for 45 minutes at the check in desk while the agents tried to sort out a problem wiht their computer system. They claimed that the problem was with the integration of their system with SAA's system."
Pros: "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: "Attendants were courteous and the spacing is better than some airlines, but that’s about it."
Cons: "Check in was a disaster: no logical control of 100s of people; delayed on the tarmac for 1:45 for a “minor technical reason” that apparently had nothing to do with the actual operation of the plane that prevented me from making my next flight. Food was terrible. Flight attendants could have been more helpful about my missed connection."
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: "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."
Pros: "Crew members were friendly....."
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "Good service"
Cons: "The services at the airport was terrible. The Booked me a flight with only a 30 minute layover. When I try telling the people before boarding the plane, big Norred me. When I told the flight attendant she said she would talk to the captain to see if there’s a way I could get a ride to my next plane so I wouldn’t miss it. That never happened. When we got off the plane no one at the airport would help us and when I was trying to run to my next terminal one of the officers at the airport told me to slow down because I wouldn’t miss the plane and I was fine. When I asked help with directions and told him I was afraid of missing my flight people laughed and walked away. When I finally found my terminal and got to it, my flight had already took off seven minutes prior. I absolutelyHated my experience flying with Ethiopian air. The seats are uncomfortable on the plane, not all the seats recline back the same level, and when I was eating dinner I decided to eat chicken since I can’t eat beef and halfway through the check in my stomach started her and I looked up the chicken and it was still pink inside."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They overbooked and pushed us to later flight, later flight boarded late, on run way 2 hours, plane maintenance issue so changed aircraft—supposed to arrive 1:30pm, arrived after 10pm, gate agent erased reservation adding frequent flyer number so my seat was given to someone else and I sat finally in last row by toilet instead of with my family—then no one can find record of my return flight and Ethiopian contact number impossible to reach. Truly awful experience. I have no idea if I will have seat on return flight."
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"
Cons: "The headphones weren’t working and boarding at Addis was very poor. They should have more personal when checking before the Gates"
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: "USB plug, nice TV/ entertainment"
Cons: "I sent them an email about an issue with my flight but they didn't get back to me"
Cons: "Chairs were not reclining. Asked for blanket and didn't get one so I was cold."
Pros: "Very helpful, attentive and kind cabin staff. New aircraft !!!"
Cons: "Somewhat dirty ( and smelly ) aircraft even though they are a very new fleet. Some seats had strange patches and stains. Overall cabin experience can be improved in terms of hygiene and food quality ( food was mediocre or slightly worse)"
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: "Good food and drinks"
Cons: "No entertainment"
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: "Staff was friendly. Airplane was clean, new and well maintained"
Cons: "The airport was disorganized. the boarding process was chaotic to say the least."
Cons: "On both flights. From Tel Aviv to Addis Ababa and from Addis Ababa to Tel Aviv my seat would not recline. These were night flights and the seat in front of me did recline. so it was a very unpleasent experiance"
Pros: "It's very nice flying with them. I will again fly with them"
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."
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: "The crew were courteous"
Cons: "The air conditioning was malfunctioning and there were insufficient blankets on the plane."
Pros: "During my trip, I enjoy the entertainment. In addition the boarding was excellent."
Cons: "I did not really enjoyed the food. I would not say it was not good but it was not my type. Well I guess this not my type of eating. In another word, I'm not use to the craft of the food."
Cons: "There was no entertainment system and there was no vegetarian option. I would have registered for the vegetarian option ahead of time, but when I tried to do online check in, it didn't work."
Pros: "EVERY THING WAS ON TIME"
Cons: "FOOD NOT GOOD"
Cons: "Addis airport is a disaster, Really long queues and badly organised, Our flight left 20 minutes late and in turn made our landing 1 hour later. The flight attendants on Ethiopian air are very lazy, they dont respond to the service button been pushed, and their English is not that good,"
