Delay after delay

Great service, nice crew, 777300 is a great plane. They offer a nice Swiss chocolate at the end of the flight. This trip was very good - except for the check in process in Miami for my outbound flight

Crew could have been more friendly…little-to no smiles…seemed like all business and get the flight over with. Baggage service at Lisbon airport was terrible, between waiting for a discharge belt # to be assigned, waiting for luggage to be loaded onto conveyor belt. All in all waited over an hour for our one suitcase….

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."
Cons: "For economy class, nothing."
Pros: "The airline is top notch and treated you great like it should be."

Cons: "crew at the gate."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and responsive."
Cons: "The flight was so hot. No personal air controls. Economy was horribly small."
Pros: "The crew was polite and continuously offering drinks, headphones and food/snacks. Kept us comfortable and happy during the flight!"
Cons: "We had a huge delay"
Cons: "1.5 hour delay departing put a slight damper on this flight but otherwise it was fine."
Pros: "Baggage out fast Separate bus for 1st and business"
Cons: "Cabin was cold Seat not as comfortable as other business classes"
Cons: "Leg room was really bad in economy and the only upgrade option was to business for $10,000 so of course not affordable for the average person."
Pros: "Again boarding was smooth"
Cons: "The seats were terrible"
Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "The flight itself was pleasant. But a 3 hour delay, because of technical issues on the incoming flight from Geneva? Why didn’t they send another aircraft?"
Cons: "My flight was delayed more than 1 hour at least after overlay of 4 hours. I missed my flight from Vienna to Yerevan and the portion of my trip was detoured to Moscow and from there to Yerevan instead of 3 hours took me 8 hours. As a result of rushing and running in Vienna to catch my flight to Yerevan I feel and injured my hip, I would like a compensation , Please contact me at armine100@cox.net or phone 703-609-8649"
Pros: "good flight didn’t have any problems"
Pros: "The food was quite good and the crew was perfectly friendly. The entertainment choices were useful on such a long flight."
Cons: "It was extremely warm on the flight; consequently, I was unable to sleep. This was my second overly warm Swiss Air flight. After numerous complaints on the first flight, the temperature was lowered, but the second flight remained warm."
Pros: "Food and crew were great."
Cons: "Economy is tight."
Pros: "crew great smooth flight"
Cons: "no problem and happy crew."
Pros: "Swiss"
Cons: "French unions"
Pros: "We were about on time"
Cons: "No power outlet, cramped due to passenger reclined fully also made using entertainment screen impossible."

Cons: "Leg room is on the tighter side!"
Cons: "Not on time at all. Toooooo late boarding"
Pros: "Good service - including snacks and drinks. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Upon boarding, the agents in the airport gave us a hard time over a bag that definitely met carry-on requirements. Almost made us check it, and then changed their mind last minute. Very unnecessary/dramatic situation, especially since we flew with that bag via carry-on multiple times (and on even smaller planes)."
Pros: "Flight crew, food, and seatback entertainment system (with USB charging port) were all great."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable and way to close. When the person in front of me leaned their seat back, I was forced to do the same. It was nearly impossible to eat. If you had a hint of claustrophobia, you would never make this entire trip without going nuts. I noticed that many of the middle seats were unoccupied, while my family and I were crammed into four seats side-by-side. If we had empty seats between us the flight would have been bearable."
Pros: "check-in at Kloten,wheelchair assistance, boarding, food, bar, general service, uneventful flight, in short: THE WHOLE TRIP Peter Hz"
Pros: "The flight left on time and arrived a bit early."
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "My seat was semi-broken, it was in constant state of reclining."
Pros: "People friendly"
Cons: "Food was poor, really poor, no options for the children Headphone socket in the seat"
Cons: "1h45 departure delayed with no compensation."
Pros: "Staff & service were super nice & friendly. In this day & age that airline travel is getting really hectic, it was a breath of fresh air to see friendly & dedicated staff who clearly enjoy what they are doing."
Cons: "Can't think of anything"
Pros: "The service on board was excellent, I would use this airlines in the future..."
Pros: "Short flight.."
Cons: "They gave me and the 2 other black people who were flying, the seats all the way in the back. I'm never telling the people at check in "just give me any seat" ever again! It was so obvious I almost complained to all the attendants! I just tried to keep my cool... HORRIBLE FIRST EXPERIENCE TO EUROPE!"
Pros: "smooth flight, comfy seats"
Pros: "Even though the flight felt like forever, the cabin crew did such a wonderful job at making us all feel comfortable. The food selection was great and the fact that the staff was approachable was also a great plus. Will definitely fly again using Swiss air. Thank you"
Pros: "Food usually was very bad on SWISS flights' econ class, this was surprisingly better (just better, not good). Staff were professional and polite though they spoke very loud even when most people around were asleep."
Cons: "At check-in counters, staff managing the queues did not speak English at all, same thing at the security check queue, only Spanish speaking. There should be some clearer instructions of how and where to queue at boarding. Everyone just wanted to cut queue."
Pros: "The food was good and I enjoyed the Swiss chocolates."
Cons: "The Seats were real cramped and the entertainment system was outdated"
Cons: "Better seats"
Pros: "Was all great as with other legs...will fly again"
Cons: "Seats seemed smaller but do need more entertainment options."
Pros: "the entertainment system was perfect, there were lots of movies and shows to entertain you, including newly release films. there were games and music also availble. the seating was comfortable we had blankets and pillows. The beverage service great and the food was good to. although there could have been better options in terms of the dessert ( ice cream taht was provided)"
Cons: "the boarding was poor, we waited in line to board and they did not announce to us that we need to have our ticket stamped before we got to the door, as a result we were sent out of line once the ticket was stamped we had to rejoin the line from the back. When i got through they then said something was wrong with my ticket in which they took it and I was pulled out of the line. they should try to the ticket check and the boarding line at the same time"
Pros: "Good seats - comfortable Attentive service"
Cons: "Found my business class seat given away to a lady with a dog. Mine was window but with extra table next to aisle. She had aisle seat but with exactly the same configuration. Idea was she would place the dog on the table space next to her seat. It would be exactly the same for both seats. Do not know what they were thinking. There were other business class seats on the other side that had the table space ext to the window away from the aisle. That would make sense for the lady with dog. Business class was full and I was the last to get on, 45 minute connection in Zurich from terminal A to E, my seat was given. But as I objected, they moved the dog lady and gave me back my seat. But they never asked a person in the seat that would have made sense to give her to trade seats."
Pros: "Even though the flight was delayed, everything else about it was great! Newer, more comfortable seating than the plane from the US to Europe, excellent food and service, no complaints about the in-air experience."
Cons: "The flight was delayed most likely because of inefficiencies in the passport check / boarding process, some people got confused, waited in the boarding line, then had to go back in queue in the passport check line. Last person walked into the plane 10 min after the scheduled departure time, as a result the airport delayed our departure by 50 more minutes."
Cons: "No me gusto . porque quando compre las pasajes con ustedes por la pagina me decia q estaba incluydo 1 maleta de 23 kg y otra de mano 8 kg. por el precio total pagado y cuando llegue ñas mañetas no estavam incluydas y tuve que pagalas. Yo ley las condiciones de mi pasaje y me daba exactamente esto que tenia derecho a las maletas. Grande falla de ustedes. ya no comprare mas con su compania K"
Pros: "Friendly crew. Good food"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Very prompt and courteus"
Cons: "Baggage missing for three days. Communication poor."
Pros: "service personnel were excellent. Espresso is great."
Cons: "Business class main meal was disappointing."

The ground crew at the airport need to be more customer friendly! They weren’t very helpful at all!! They were too busy chatting with themselves!!

Pros: "Entertainment was great!"
Cons: "The check-in was stressful and congested."
Pros: "They were helpful"
Cons: "The entertainment services on the plane"
Cons: "Food in TK used to be great... not anymore!"
Cons: "More space and room seating"
Cons: "Food is not great and the flight was delayed by an hour"
Cons: "The airline lost my luggage. I have to wait two days for it's return."
Cons: "Between two seats so narrow even you can’t seat.I was so nervous when you flaying such a long distance you need to more space.I don’t like it at all."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Not enough leg room"
Pros: "Care from the crew and consideration"
Pros: "Food and crew amazing..I guess Turkish airline going to be best"
Pros: "flight departed Jhb on time and arrived in Istanbul a few mins earlier than scheduled"
Cons: "1.cabin temperature varied from cold to very warm 2.I asked the cabin crew for a blanket but they forgot about it 3.I ordered a whisky with ice - was given half a tot with 2 small blocks of ice 4.only one person was serving drinks and food on my aisle so it was very slow service (other aisle had 2 crew serving)"
Pros: "Nothing. How can anyone overbook a flight and want the passengers to pay the price. Food is horrible. Will never book with this airline again"
Cons: "Everything. Customer service is horrible"
Pros: "Turkish A/L always professional and efficient."
Cons: "Unmanaged two-year olds crying throughout the 10-hour flight. Will avoid IST going forward as well. Chaotic airport with little or no management present. Had to wait through SIX separate lines for a simple flight transfer. Had the body scans TWICE. Ridiculous. Nearly missed my 10-hour flight to Chicago."
Pros: "No complaints about the plane, staff etc and its probably no worse than any other airline"
Cons: "Long overnight flight in Economy Class, little legroom. As I am larger than average and find it hard to sleep on flights, the cramped conditions were extremely uncomfortable"
Pros: "I'm 6 ft 2. Legspace was adequate, and no silly boxes under the seats like other airlines that obstruct your feet. Great entertainment systems - modern, good selection. Food and staff excellent."
Cons: "Their online checkin systems could operate a bit more smoothly. At one point, I had to go in in person, because the online checkin site had an already past flight from their codeshare partner SAS showing up as the next flight, and I couldn't perform online checkin as a result."
Pros: "The crew is always very friendly and helpful. Plenty of space in the overhead bins. Food is very delicious and you can always get either one of the options, whereas, in other airlines, you have to settle for the least favorite one if your seat is closer to the tail. They have sandwiches and cakes available during the whole flight."
Cons: "The seats are cramped just like any other airline."
Pros: "The check in at Budapest was very helpful."
Pros: "Flight was on time and landed safely. Great food even in economy -- but they ran out of coffee."
Cons: "Check-in was very slow."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "The issue of excess baggage. Would appreciate to buy on line before my flight so that I know how much to carry and also that I am covered before leaving home. Payment at the airport may be too costly as well as unreasonable. It's like a penalty for having excess luggage. This is the reason I prefer flying with EMIRATES because they afford me to but pay fir excess luggage before my departure. Planning ahead is key"
Cons: "My flight tonight (0078) from MIA to Istanbul was delayed by over 5 hours. I am traveling with an infant and it has been IMPOSSIBLE to get anyone to help us. Finally, someone at the airport helped in re-booking our flights but I have yet to have anyone give me an answer regarding compensation! In addition, we are traveling with an infant which isn't easy but we had the bassinet seat on our original flight. Now it's sold out for the flight tomorrow and no one will assist in trying to help get us better seats. I understand things are out of your companies control but being in an airport with an 18-month baby isn't easy and no one in this company has made this crazy travel schedule easier. I would like someone to call me back or email me with something that could maybe be done to help us! No one at the call center will help!"
Pros: "Staff"
Cons: "Seats, food and service"
Pros: "Onboard food was good"
Cons: "Crew wasn't attentive, flight boarding was delayed with passengers on the bus waiting for boarding ramp to the plane, for awhile no explanation was given."
Pros: "great crew and flight!"
Cons: "We would have loved to have been able to easily upgrade to business class but weren't able to."
Pros: "Not enought time for transit between two flights"
Cons: "Two out of three sutecases did not arrive."
Cons: "The flight from LAX was delayed which can happen but they were so dysfunctional in Istanbul that we not only missed the original connecting flight to Tel Aviv but the next two subsequent ones as well. They sent us from one end of the airport to the other and made us wait in 4 different lines before sending us to the next one. Our baggage arrived opened and taped closed and had been rifled through. My 90 year old mother almost collapsed because wheelchairs in LAX and in Istanbul never arrived."
Cons: "The sound from the headphones is just horrible. I decided not to listen to music and could barely hear the voices in a movie."
Cons: "The flight from Antalya to Istanbul was late so we almost missed our connection flight. This story is repeating with your airline at 29th July our Turkish Airlines flight from Sarajevo was late for 3hours so we were running at Ataturk Airport to catch connection flight to Istanbul even though we booked 4 hours delay in Istanbul. Regards, Edin"
Pros: "Good food and service"
Cons: "Headphones did not work"
Pros: "The flight was quite comfortable. We lucked out with only a partially filled flight leaving extra space to sleep. Service was friendly and the food was excellent! I was fed twice on my 9hour flight and once on my 4hour flight. Great in flight entertainment."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "they lost my lagge and I been in JFK airport waiting over 2 hours I am soo upset it is a very bad experience I hope they found my stuff"
Pros: "Turkish airlines is a very friendly airline. They did a good job of making sure people were taken care of."
Cons: "I was traveling with a group and wasn't able to be seated with my group for any of my flights including a 12 hour transatlantic flight. For whatever reason, I couldn't actually check in for my flight and select seats prior to arriving at the airport. This happened with each ticket I purchased through every other agency except for orbitz.com. Not sure if that was a Turkish Airlines issue or a kayak.com issue, but it was very frustrating. When we arrived at the airport, we could no longer be seated together because everyone else had already checked in online and selected their seats for an overbooked flight. One of my group members was issued a standby ticket and almost didn't get on one of the flights that we paid a lot of money for. I would call this travel experience subpar, but I don't entirely blame Turkish Airlines for this."
Pros: "Great"
Pros: "Meals, friendliness and warmth of staff, restrooms were routinely maintained, movies."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Staff was not considerate at all to kids. Wouldn't give food snacks fruit milk. Frowned when retuning trays."
Pros: "Food and Crew"
Cons: "The fact that the boarding was by bus and not through a sleeve detracts from the process."
Pros: "I like the food and the crew and the entertainment"
Cons: "i didnt like the plane touchdown the ground and take off again that was so scary."
Cons: "the kosher food was poor"
Pros: "Food is excellent, staff great."
Cons: "Not nearly enough leg room for an international flight!!"
Pros: "The crew and the service. Plus the choices for entertainment"
Cons: "The chairs were really uncomfortable, I'm a young, healthy traveler, but my knees and back really hurt after this trip."
Pros: "Entertainment system is excellent, food is solid and plentiful."
Cons: "I've flown Turkish a few times before, and they're generally pretty good for the price. This trip was different. Despite Turkish Airlines policies outlined in their "Customer Rights," I received no notification that the flight was delayed 3 hours, and there was no notification at the JoBurg airport until you go to the counter to check in. JoBurg staff - which are Menzies third-party contractors, not Turkish staff - were disorganized, uncommunicative, and unhelpful. Only one person at the check in desk seemed to have authorization to make any changes, so all other agents were running back and forth to speak with him, and not communicating with passengers. It took over an hour to get clarity on the situation and rebook my connecting flight to Washington for a different flight 8 hours later. The only compensation offered was one meal voucher worth R100 (roughly $7). They would not even look at other Star Alliance flights for early arrival in Washington, and said they were not authorized to consider upgrading my ticket. When I called the Turkish customer service, they essentially said "What do you want us to do about it? You have to submit a formal complaint." Boarding was totally disorganized. In theory there are boarding groups, but after business class and all the high-ranking loyalty members, it's pretty much a mad rush. This seems to be the common practice for Turkish now. In general, Turkish has a great entertainment system on all their long-haul flights, with tons of movies - including very new releases - music, games, etc. They also provide complimentary kits with socks, slippers, eye mask, earplugs and dental kit, even for economy passengers. The meals are fairly good for airlines. However, legroom in economy isn't great. I'm 6'1", and had difficulty getting comfortable with my knees jammed into the back of the seat in front of me. On this particular flight, I was in row 18. The cabin crew were frantic, disorganized, and shouting to each other across passengers. One half of our row was served the meal, and the other half had to wait over 30 minutes to be served for some reason. By that time the vegetarian option was no longer available. Crew also had to run back and forth between service carts because they were frequently out of very common beverages (like sparkling water. And ice.), and on two occasions crew left a drawer from a cart full of trash sitting in the aisle. There were several times that crew ran carts into passengers - including once into my knee that was not in the aisle - and didn't even acknowledge doing so. They also stopped the carts in front of occupied lavatories, temporarily trapping passengers. So not terribly professional. While not specifically on this flight, the experience in Istanbul airport with Turkish Airlines' staff was awful. Zero interest in helping, rude and dismissive, and overall terrible."
Pros: "I left my iPad in the seat back of my previous flight to Istanbul and by the next morning they had my iPad to me and Hungary! Very professional!"
Cons: "Good floght"
Cons: "The airline has lost my luggage which has costs several hundred dollars worth of replacements and they have not been in contact."
Pros: "The crew was extremely polite and pleasant. We felt welcomed and taken care off."
Cons: "It was an old plane and it was not possible to see the tv monitors."
Pros: "Helpful crew. Screens for entertainment and information at each seat."
Cons: "Both meals were penne pasta, as was the previous flight's. Should be more varied."
Pros: "Very professional and forthcoming crew, nice food, good choice of entertainment."
Cons: "A bit older plane with very weak (invisible in light) entertainment system monitors, yet clean and well maintained."
Cons: "Aggressive staff, terrible food"

Boarding was unorganized.

Not space for luggage.

Plane was very delayed. US agents unhelpful in connection flt and in seating. No real info given on delay.

Our entertainment/movie and audio did not work during our flight. Two of our bags did not make it to our final home destination. No personal assistant. Everything is via email/web with no assistance.

The crew was good to me but I could see one short hair air hostesses was very rude to a fellow passenger. She behaved very condescending towards him and I could see at one point he even got upset saying that she cannot treat him like this. It was uncomfortable to watch that. The business class seat was uncomfortable. Please make sure atleast the business class is better in condition. Thanks

Pros: "Good crew, helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Food is not as good as some other airlines I’ve been on."
Pros: "the food on LH755 was decent. LH454 second snack, a cold sandwich was inedible! Too salty, soggy and just plain yucky!"
Cons: "Food!"
Pros: "The crew was great! The seats are never comfortable on economy flights."
Cons: "I was supposed to have wheelchair assistance. None there. Flight was on time. Passenger assistance is AWFUL!!!"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and attentive, I really like the food on Lufthansa"
Cons: "The movie selection was limited and dated"
Pros: "everything from the boarding and check-in process to in flight comfort."
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "The airplane arrived over 45 minutes late."
Cons: "Flight was canceled from Newark to Monachium then coming back plane from Krakow was late and I had to spend night in Monacoum . I arrived to Newark on Tuesday instead of Monday horrible trip all together ☹️"
Pros: "The flight attendants were friendly, and service was fast. The snack was a chicken and carrot sandwich. It was good."
Cons: "The boarding was delayed twice and no explanation was given by the staff. We arrived 1 hour late."
Pros: "Smooth flight, good service, seats above average"
Cons: "Food quality has gone down"
Pros: "The crew were very considerate. Also they have the best baby beds we have seen so far"
Cons: "The entertainment system was glitchy."
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: "On time."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Attendants very nice. Movie selection...OK....not great ON TIME!...except"
Cons: "Food mediocre in economy class Seat back in front of me was stuck in non upright position by 1.5 inches which made me feel uncomfortable...too cramped. Pilot landed us early & then we sat on tarmac for 30 mins + because gate wasn't ready!"
Cons: "No volume on entertainment system for our row. But the crew were excellent - very professional, courteous and apologetic."
Cons: "Flight delay due to connecting flight"
Pros: "Overall, the main leg to Frankfurt was fine for entertainment and boarding; the staff was pleasant; but, the seats on all legs were ridiculously tight, and the planes were packed like sardines. I was stuck on window seats on 2 of 3 legs, despite requesting window seats, and the comfort on all legs was terrible. In future, I will take advantage of an upgrade offer from the Airline."
Cons: "Read previous comments on likes. In summary, the flight was too full, and the service for my seating was OK. That is it... OK."
Pros: "Overall it was a good flight."
Cons: "The dessert could have been better than a Kit Kat chocolate bar."
Pros: "Good snacks"
Pros: "Friendly crew. Flight left on time"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "when seats recline in economy you can barely get in and out of a seat"
Pros: "Perfect service and comfort for a short flight. Very modern, excellent!"
Cons: "Sandwich delicious but too small."
Cons: "I assigned seats for me and my daughter but they separated us in both legs. That's not good"
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: "Will newer agan fly business with Lufthansa!! It's not business at all just regular econom seats with short leg room and casual service. They should be sorry for that kind of business!!"
Pros: "0"
Cons: "Had to pay to check in one nag"
Pros: "Fell aslep right after takeoff"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
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)"
Cons: "Missed connection along with about 25 others due to the delay getting to Lisbon (no reasons given)."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable; departure and arrival were timely."
Cons: "After priority passengers boarded the aircraft, boarding for everyone else was a free for all. It would be more orderly if there were clear lines and groupings of rows beginning at the rear were called. Movie selection was not great. Many choices were old. Few were current."
Pros: "Staff seemed super friendly and happy to help. Also got plenty of drinks!"
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Great crews, great amenities, good food. Best flights I've been on in a long time."
Pros: "Good flight good staff. Captain explained the route which is nice."
Cons: "No negatives"
Pros: "SAS and BA can do better"
Cons: "not enough leg room, louder than expected engine noise"
Pros: "Excellent Flight"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The plane stewardesses were actually really efficient (German style). Because of being on the waiting list to get on the plane I couldn't get a seat next to my partner so they did the biggest math exercise to put us together. Props to them"
Cons: "The flight overbooked (I still don't understand this concept, since is basically selling twice the same seat, right? Is that even legal?) Also the system was down, so no check-in online = the biggest line at the airport, it took me more than 1 hour to check-in and drop my luggage, all to get there and the ground force lady (the rudest person alive) tell me that I had no seat available, that she was going to put me on the waiting list... WHAT? I bought my ticket already, waiting list? Well, to say that I highly doubt that I'll book with Lufthansa again."
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: "Entertainet options were very good and very diverse."
Cons: "For an international flight the plane was quite tight in terms if leg room and aisle space."
Pros: "Entertainment."
Cons: "Staff was extremely sassy and unhelpful when I had been traveling for 40 hours."
Pros: "Lots of carry on space"
Cons: "I expect cabin crew to assist me with my luggage. They were telling me to do it myself"

Amsterdam as a hub is a mess, do not use Amsterdam and KLM as a hub to European cities unless you want to miss your flight.

Very poor snack and drink option

3.5 hours delay will ruin any day!

Delay information

Very cramped flight, overhead bins were all completely filled, and passengers had to fly with bags by their feet which was not very comfortable for me personally.

Wrote in the previous message. Poor. Delayed flight and lost working day. 4.5h together to rebook the flight, get the hotel voucher, get to the hotel and check in. Insanely slow.

They canceled our flights but they flew anyway.

Pros: "So rude crew"
Pros: "The seats were so comfortable"
Cons: "Allow business passenger to use front bathroom."
Cons: "Bigger seats the new ones are way to narrow"
Pros: "Information sharing by pilots and crew. Economy class leg room is good."
Cons: "All good up to the level"
Pros: "15 years ago I told myself not to fly Delta anymore. But these 2 flights Detroit to Amsterdam and back changed my mind. I enjoyed the flight very much and I'm looking forward to the next one."
Pros: "Planes were on time and connections made."
Cons: "One bag delayed as not put on flight and food could be better."
Pros: "Good amount of space on the plane, lots of movies to watch, good food and drink."

Pros: "The crew were very nice, food was tasty, seat comfortable and the entertainment great as well. Will be flying KLM again soon :)"
Cons: "I ordered Wheel chair for my parents but one of them didn't get it at all. When my parents were checking in for flight they asked the representative about meal selection and she didn't answer their questions properly and because of that my mom didn't get proper Hindu Vegetarian food on flight instead she got Egg omelet which she couldn't eat. She has to eat just fruits. My mother is a diabetic patient and she needs a food every after some time. I never had such a bad experience before with any other airlines."
Pros: "Everything OK"
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "The seats seemed to have more space on this plane which was nice."
Cons: "It felt strange that the crew members completely skipped over me when serving lunch and drinks. At least something as basic as water should be given to all passengers."
Pros: "The flight to Gdansk took off and arrived on-time and the staff were professional."
Cons: "The flight to Amsterdam from Gdansk was late and I had to RUN to the connecting gate. 50 minutes is NOT ENOUGH time to go through passport control."
Pros: "The cabin crew was so kind, efficient, and attentive. All meals and snacks were delicious."
Cons: "Boarding was confusing and disorganized"
Pros: "Good services!"
Pros: "Really friendly staff. Great service"
Cons: "Unaccompanied minor flying to Lisbon overnight. Bag was lost. No real effort to assist. Bags of unaccompanied minor should be treated with priority."
Cons: "After more than two hours of delay... Initially the flight takes off was at 8:35... Then 21:20... Then 21:50... Then 22:10. Finally we took off at 22:40... Refund our money klm..."

Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Pros: "Flight was delayed for three hours and was a very stressful flight"
Cons: "Flight was not on time and got to destination very very late pier management of aircrafts"
Cons: "The Guy who had an accident when boarding causing a delay. Also I didn’t like the wait fir checking as passengers with children went before business class and should be after."
Pros: "Good multi media access and content"
Pros: "Comfort economy well worth the extra."
Cons: "One of the senior stewardesses we're very rude. Whether it's her personal opinion or KLM's policy, it's unreasonable to think that a 3 years old child could or should hold her pipi over 20 minutes, while they slowly and inefficiently trying to give out food. Several parents were there with the request to let us through to the toilet with small children and she smiled in our face and said "no, we will finish first and than you can go". She might be not fit for the job anymore, but KLM can't afford this kind of treatment."
Pros: "The flight was delayed by 40 minutes initially then a further 20 making it an hour late. Sitting at the gate there was then suddenly a last call to board the flight and a mad rush for everyone to get on. I appreciate that delays happen but the lack of communication ragardinh altered boarding times didn't make the situation any easier"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "The constant supply of food that was offered to you. The crew was nice and always helpful."
Cons: "The process of boarding in Amsterdam was not organized and felt more stressful than it needed to be."
Cons: "Horrible. First, we lost a suitcase. It could happen but for two days they did nothing and only told us stories (so as not to use the word lies). Within a few hours (and thanks to airline assistance) we were able to locate the suitcase. Even then it took them two days to bring it to us, two precious days off our planned vacation (7 days) At the end of the shortened vacation, we got to the chek in, and told that since the ticket I had purchased form them two months earlier was too cheap ... and since the flight was Over booked, they would take me off the plane if all the passengers would arrive. It's unnecessary to describe what I felt until the plane took off. They apologize constantly, but do nothing practical. a bae company. no me nor my freinds/family will go with KLM"
Pros: "Friendliest economy class service I've ever encountered."
Pros: "We love the flight all the way"
Pros: "We really liked the KLM people, from the check in crew to the flight attendants."
Pros: "Plane service"
Cons: "1h30min delay at airport"
Pros: "10 hour flight - I was well looked after, regular drinks, the food and snacks were good enough and tasty. The in flight entertainment was good - latest movies and worked a great variety of tv, books and movies. The airplane was modern and comfortable"
Cons: "I wasn't sitting next to my partner and we sat on the Tarmac for 45 minutes after the flight was already delayed by 30 minutes."

Fine for a short flight

A bit cramped - the flight was 45 mins early which is usually welcome but not what you want when it leaves at 23:45 Addis time and arrives at 04:15 Rome time (5h30) instead of 5:05. Nothing to be done if you're travelling from Addis to Rome but if you're connecting as part of a longer journey, you may want to consider another option with an overnight long enough so you can sleep.

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

Reliable partner. I am sure I will get to my destination in time. Best airline - spacious leg room, good entertainment are used between Addis and shorter distances. Worst airline carriages - shorter leg rooms, torn seats, entertainment systems not working are placed between Addis and Dulles (very long routes).

Good and efficient service. Food was quite poor though. And my seat hadn't been cleaned from previous flight (pockets still full of gargbage). Flight entertainment had a good screen, but audio with earplugs was terrible.

Pros: "Amazing friendly crew. Spot on entertainment!!!"
Cons: "Toilet facilities could have been cleaner"
Pros: "The crew members were very accommodating and friendly. They do a wonderful job. When I told them that the power was not working in my seat and that I needed it for my CPAP (I call it my anti-snoring device), they arranged for me to move to another seat where the power worked for the CPAP. When the power did not work in the new seat for my laptop, they offered to let me charge it in a more powerful outlet near the galley."
Cons: "The power didn't work for my laptop. It did work for my CPAP device. Some of the seat control buttons were out of order."
Cons: "Someone stole my airpods in my bag. I noticed it once reached at home. This is the first time it happens to me. Very bad experience"
Pros: "seat not comfortable"
Cons: "more drinks along the way"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything starting from the check in to on board restrooms"
Cons: "USB connection was not working from my seat"
Cons: "Entertainment is non existent. Plane is tatty."
Pros: "Very good,on time good service"
Cons: "Better seats on business in boing 737 800"
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"
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: "It was a very short flight"
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: "Everything was great."
Cons: "Nothing"
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: "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: "The entertainment system wasn't working properly. I requested Asian Vegetarian Meal and they gave me regular Vegetarian Meal."
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: "NOTHING"
Cons: "The experience from the airport to the plane to Lome was beyond troubling. If ever you are flying internationally from NYC, never fly from Newark New Jersey. Nevertheless, upon boarding the Ethiopian Airline flight to Lome that was supposed to depart at 9:15 pm, the courtesy of the flight attendants was a bit mundane. My mother and I sat on the plane for about an hour after the time of the depart before inquiring why we have no moved and the doors were closed. The flight attendant responded with, "We shall be moving shortly." The air conditioner was barely on. My mother is battling stage 3 Cancer and is an older woman so, I feared for the safety of her health in such a condition. About 30 minutes passed, and we inquired again. This time with a different flight attendant and she said she just did not know what was going on. Other people on the plane began to panic in a sense as well because like my mother and I, they too had a connecting flight to catch. The pilot did not inform the passengers of what was occurring. So, at this point, all passengers on flight ET509 had been sitting on the plane for an hour and a half. By the time we were sitting on the plane for 2 HOURS with the doors closed the pilot finally informed us that they were waiting for some paperwork. He did not apologize or give more information as to why we were sitting on the plane so long, with practically no AC, and weren't informed about when we would be pulling off. About 10 minutes later, the plane began backing up while people were still standing because they were restless with the wait especially when we had a 10-hour flight ahead of us. The pilot then got on the loudspeaker stating that we will be pulling in the air shortly and for the flight attendants to be seated. The pilot did not apologize for the inconvenience or state how long the flight would be or what time we would land in Lome, Togo. Once we were in the air, there were many safety hazards administered by both the crew and pilot. The seat belt safety information was not given, the exit areas in case of emergency were not discussed, what to do in case of an emergency, where certain equipment would be in case of illness or an emergency, and we were still not informed about the cause of the 2 hours and 15-minute delay. My mother and I consistently checked the flight tracker and it did not show the duration of our flight, our location while flying, no flight information was displayed and as hard working paying passengers we should have had all of the information and not have to continuously ask to get a slight answer. Also, I am a vegan and they did not have food for me. But there was a flight attendant who gave me extra fruit which I greatly appreciated. The flight coming back to Newark was decent, going was the major issue. I pray we are accommodated for these great inconveniences. Because to have spent almost $3,000 and receive this type of treatment is both saddening and disturbing to me."
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: "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: "Meal service plentiful. They kept the bathrooms very clean"
Cons: "This plane seemed older not as spacious or as clean as planes on Ethiopian I've traveled on before. Horrible film selections, and it's the same coming and going."
Cons: "Bad plane flight was cancelled. Horrible experience."
Pros: "service very friendly"
Cons: "nothing"
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: "There was a deley of 3 and a half h"
Cons: "Chairs were not reclining. Asked for blanket and didn't get one so I was cold."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, pleasant airline attendants."
Cons: "Nothing."
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: "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: "It was a night flight (~4-5 hours), however, 80% the time the lights were on... people did not want to eat/drink... and get disturbed constantly by the crew. We just wanted to sleep. Without lights"
Cons: "Same as above"
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: "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 flight attendants seemed a bit disorganized delivering the food and drinks"
Pros: "The seats were good, the flight was comfortable and easy. Flight attendents were friendly and proffessional."
Cons: "Food could be better but I don't expect much on an airplane, the media system is a bit old so you don't have a lot of options but it's OK."
Pros: "EVERY THING WAS ON TIME"
Cons: "FOOD NOT GOOD"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Played a kids movie... I don't even think there was a kid on the plane. Everything about this flight had me feeling i wouldn't want to fly on Ethiopian again. Bad experience. Same as the flight above. Terrible food."
