Pros: "Top notch service. Very comfortable in business class. Very attentive. Would definitely fly with them again."

The inflight entertainment, touch screen and remote controlled, was so good i was up the entire time watching movies Black Panther, Downsizing, DeathWish, Pacific Rim and listening to the wonderful library of music, i was surprised at the range of music, from uncensored rap to big band."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, derive very ordinary staff unhelpful seat allocation system requires improving ! Extra cost from economy was not worth it !"

Pros: "The trip was uneventful, with the usual excellent service."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I booked regular economy and flew to Tokyo that way, but put a bid in for premium economy for the flight home and got it. It's not a big upgrade (bigger display panel, a little more leg room, seat tilt and it has a leg rest) but those things made the flight for me."
Cons: "I don't have much on the down side front aside from the usual "would like more leg room" and "more seat tilt" so nothing new to report"

Cons: "Some staff not courteous which surprised me"

Pros: "great crew service. my first time flying with singapore airlines and they delivered"

Pros: "Loved the hot towel service"
Cons: "Entertainment could be better, however there were a few new and Oscar nominated movies available. Personal air conditioning would be great, I was too hot the entire flight"

Pros: "I felt safe ( important to me) and had just the right amount of attention from staff Very comfortable"

Pros: "Friendly, smiling staff, ever happy to help, nice food"

Pros: "Free seat next to me. Brilliant entertainment Very tasty food Excellent service"
Cons: "Nothing! Best daytime flight to europe! And home before midnight"

Pros: "Boarding ok, timely departure. Food very good for plane food."
Cons: "Announced early landing but then doing circles without any update, we ended up being 30min late. Updates would have been good."

Cons: "one of the oldest planes i ever used"

Pros: "Non stop to HK"
Cons: "Staff wake you up very aggressively when meal time. Other airlines leave stickers. This is a long flight, be respectful. Will avoid for future."

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."

Pros: "everything is perfect"
Cons: "the food on Silk Air can be better"

Cons: "Particularly asked for aisle seat during checking in and I was told I was allocated aisle seat, but my seat was in the middle all the way to Brisbane. Person who checked me in did not seem like who wanted to be on the job beside being not too busy at all."

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: "Crew was very friendly and good service."
Cons: "Crew could have asked the passengers whether they need snacks in between."

Pros: "Food, movies, support, were all wonderful."

Pros: "Upgraded to biz class, which was fantastic"

Pros: "Service was great, food was alright, was able to move from a middle seat to a window."
Cons: "The flight I was supposed to take from Nanjing to Hong Kong by Hong Kong Airlines in the afternoon didn't exist so I had to take a morning flight. Was given no warning and had to check on my own. The Singapore Airlines flight was on time though."

Pros: "Great food and plenty of movies. Friendly crew"

Pros: "In-flight Entertainment. Orderly & on-time boarding."

Cons: "delay for 2 hours without notice"

Pros: "Veruy efficient"
Cons: "None"

Cons: "Video screens were quite small and there were no USB charging."

"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: "So so"
Cons: "More care and warmth"

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: "Attentive and friendly crew, leg room"
Cons: "Need to serve better food in economy. There is a little more legroom in economy compared to other airlines, however, the seats are tight. They are not wide enough. Need better movie selection."

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: "My FA from IAH to DOH was outstanding. She made sure I was comfortable the whole flight"

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: "I enjoyed my flight,it was a smooth trip from Doha to Manila, the Cabin Crew received adequate training on taking care of people, as a professional nurse who is use to taking care of others ,I see someone else looking after me and I really appreciate their efforts. Shortly before we landed at Manila, we were informed that in order to meet international flight rules and regulations that insecticide will be sprayed we were advised to cover our nose,as a medical personnel I see it not good cos it can trigger an Asthmatic attack in a known asthmatic patient ,it was a lovely journey"
Cons: "I enjoyed their meal and services wanted to be Oliver Twist"

Pros: "Just that the food is quite small but the variety is OK."

Pros: "The staff is friendly .. and polite .. yhe explain well the rules and safety . They listen to costumer.. they make amends and or do what they can do to provide good and quality service"
Cons: "There is nothing in particular .. but i woud suggest .. more good food."

Pros: "Staff was outstanding"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Access to entertainments"
Cons: "CRYING BABY BUT I UNDERSTAND THOUGH"

Pros: "Fantastic service, very friendly staff who are always happy to help"
Cons: "Should have internet free of charge in flight"

Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "The change of my flight schedule for the entire journey was done without giving me any options (departure flights from origin and return). It would have caused me inconvenience if the change of time does not allow me to adjust my plans."

Pros: "Airport was pretty impressive,"
Cons: "Waiting Area in DOHA for boarding does not have a latrine to use, so once you checked in you can't go back out."

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: "Comfy, good food, good service"
Cons: "No internet. Limited movie options."

Pros: "Flight was without any hitches, could have done better with boarding after the previous mishap of a 5 hour delayed flight and being forced to stay in Doha for a night which put everyone's schedules off by a day. Still, I would book another flight with Qatar airways for their efforts and overall good service."
Cons: "It would have been nice if Qatar Airlines also provided Priority Boarding for everyone on the flight that got delayed as there was a long line just to get to the boarding area."

Cons: "They lost my bag and that’s disappointing considering I have my bank account details in that bag. Very disappointed by this"

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: "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."

Cons: "Late gatw announcement so we waited for quite sometime in front of the electronic board"

Pros: "Flight attendants were very efficient and really took care of us."
Cons: "given their were three food choices, most often what we wanted wa almost always not available even if were in the first rows to be served."

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: "I had booked the Amaya lounge for the 3,5 hours stop over. It cost $50+ and was so not worth it! Bad food and uncomfortable chairs plus it was really crowded! Next time I'll just go to a cafe! No seats at the gate when I got there. Slooow boarding!"

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."

Cons: "They cancelled the booking without telling about that And also they didn't prepare a place for staying The desk manager said the booking cancelled by your company"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Because of poor connection, arrived for flight 15 min. before departure. Gate agent wouldn't allow us to board and wouldn't help us rebook. Offered no help."

Pros: "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."

Pros: "Entertainment was great!"
Cons: "The check-in was stressful and congested."

Cons: "They made me check my hand luggage, did not pay attention to what airline I would get on my connection flight, neither got my warnings about it. They sent my bag directly to my destination but the other airline wouldn't pick up."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and service was good."
Cons: "Seats should be more comfortable"

Cons: "Flight was delayed, missed connection in Istanbul and had to spend a day in Turkey before next available flight"

Cons: "Food is not great and the flight was delayed by an hour"

Pros: "It was fine!"
Cons: "No problems there... Everything was fairly well organized..."

Pros: "Good food and service."
Cons: "I am not tall but still had no legroom. Plane configured with too many rows."

Pros: "Care from the crew and consideration"

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)"

Cons: "Had a layover in Toronto. From Toronto we flew to Istanbul and then Venice. While waiting in line to board in Toronto, I was told my carry-on luggage was too big and needed to be put under. I asked MULTIPLE times where my luggage would be- either Istanbul or Venice (final destination) and EVERY time I asked, I was told my luggage would be waiting for me in Venice. Once we arrived in Istanbul I asked AGAIN if my carry-on luggage was here or if it would be in Venice and I was told it would be in Venice. Once we arrived in Venice, my luggage was nowhere to be found. The lost luggage crew (and 90% of the people in Venice) were completely rude and acted like we were a huge inconvenience for them. (I've heard that many Europeans cannot stand Americans, but we were not being rude or obnoxious at all to anyone- we just wanted a quiet, romantic vacation.) So safe to say that it was an extremely rough start. We were in Venice for the Glass Art Society Conference in Murano and due to my luggage being lost, had missed the first day and a half, therefore wasting hundreds of dollars. Luckily my boyfriend's phone worked in order to spend our first two days of vacation (not to mention the amount of money spent on international calling costs) tracking down my luggage, but again dealt with completely rude people who barely helped us with any answers and even hung up on us multiple times (and I'd like to add that despite my frustration, I made sure that I was not speaking rudely one bit). The best answers we received were from the people at the Istanbul airport who told us that Venice received my luggage hours before I even called Istanbul- which I do not understand why the Venice airport did not tell me this because I spent all day speaking with them. Once I called back the Venice airport to confirm what the Istanbul airport told us, they said (once again rudely) that they called me on my phone but did not answer (which I already told them that my phone did not have any service and to call my boyfriend's phone number). So to sum up: I will never be flying to Venice ever again."

Pros: "The entertainment was a nice touch, the food and drinks given, and the restrooms were clean."
Cons: "Crew was a little unfriendly, they missed us for lunch and we had to ask."

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: "The food was good, the entertainment ample and up-to-date, and our flight attendant on that flight was very nice and helpful. My sister is incredibly tall and they were able to put us in an exit row, which was much more comfortable for her."

Pros: "Overall experience"

Pros: "Entertainment and crew were helpful"
Cons: "Food messed with my stomach."

Pros: "Flight was ok"
Cons: "The flight was actually run by turkish airlines, not philippine air as stated in my confirmation email, so we were sent to the wrong terminal. Nothing in the email said which terminal the flight would depart from or that it was actually turkish airlines. Very irresponsible and communication for customers should be much clearer. Luckily we were very early for the flight or it could have caused a serious problem."

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."

Cons: "Movies didn't work well"

Pros: "The crew was nice and kind for the most part. The food was good although a bit small, but good flavor."
Cons: "The plane wasn't clean, the table/trays hadn't been cleaned. We had a 2 hour delay and no reason was given and waiting for food for a very long time in this case and it was already late in the day."

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"

Pros: "Great service. Great food. Comfortable flight both ways"

Pros: "This is Mollah Maziber Rahman & Afia Begum. We lost one luggage. PIR #ATL TK 11108, Luggage booked # 0235701012/TK701012. Could you please send my luggage to 10715 Pine walk Forest Circle, Alpharetta GA 30022. This is urgent. Thanks."

Pros: "Service, hospitality, free internet movies food unlimited sandwich and cake, usb charging, clean restroom"

Pros: "Excellent customer service, crew always helpful and glad to please."
Cons: "Atatürk airport link too confusing and decreased my flight experience"

Pros: "The food and beverage selection, as well as the service in business class was excellent. Initially I dreaded the long layover of 8 hours. But I found the Turkish Airlines Business Lounge. It was so spectacular that I didn't want to leave it. I found a small movie theatre equipped with leather oversized recliners and slept. I was told that the 2 story lounge is 6000 square meters."
Cons: "The business class seating is old and not as comfortable as the newer herring bone configurations. Privacy could be improved."

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."

Pros: "Will definitely fly Turkish Airlines again."

Pros: "The crew was kind"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed. We were told we would make the flight which we didn't. We had to spend 12 hours at the airport to await the next plane to Batumi. We were given lunch vouchers but what it applied to was substandard"

Pros: "Entertainment and food was good."
Cons: "Flying to Tel Aviv (I missed my chance to review), my tray table was broken and the USB wouldn't charge on any of the televisions."

Pros: "great customer service!!!"
Cons: "I ordered vgml (vegan meal) a head of time, been confirmed, but non of my most recent 4 flights had it:("

Pros: "I had a most pleasant experience flying from New York, NY to Kiev, Ukraine. Everything about the service was just right. Thank you for your kindness and attention to detail. From now on I will only fly Turkish Airlines when going to Kiev."

Cons: "Everything was pretty good."

Pros: "same as above, i love that i was able to check in online and choose my seat. I love the kit (toothbrush, socks) and the quality of the pouch - super love it! Pillow and blanket as well is still the same quality as before."

Pros: "Food and Crew"
Cons: "The fact that the boarding was by bus and not through a sleeve detracts from the process."

Pros: "It's an international flight and they don't offer other food alternatives."

Cons: "the kosher food was poor"

Pros: "Food is excellent, staff great."
Cons: "Not nearly enough leg room for an international flight!!"

Pros: "Because it was my first time on Turkish Airlines I was a bit apprehensive but the experience was very positive. The crew was friendly, the service good, the food very good and the entertainment excellent. All my flights left on time and arrive on time or earlier. The airplane, an Airbus 300, was new and comfortable."
Cons: "The boarding process at Istanbul was a bit chaotic but the flight left on time. I guess the airport personnel knew what they were doing. Istanbul airport is big and modern. There a lot of nice shops, including Duty Free. One annoying thing was the large number of airport employees using these motorized transports, I.e. wheelchairs, bipeds, tricycles, etc, going at high speed. If you don't get out of their way they will run you over!"

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: "It was ok."
Cons: "I asked a flight member for assistance and he said he would get back to me with the info but never responded. Also, when meals were delivered, my packages were halfway open as if it was prev touched by someone else and the food was not warm. My arriving flight gave high hopes that this returning fight did not fulfill."

Pros: "Friendly staff good service."
Cons: "The grill chicken served for dinner was cold."

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!"

Pros: "The provide very good service."

Pros: "There were great entertainment options, which is really important for such a long haul flight."
Cons: "They had assigned the same seat to me and somebody else, and the other person was already sitting in the seat when I got there. The only other available seat was in business class, and although the flight attendant later admitted I should have been given that business class seat, the other person successfully argued to take it. Staff are good though not as friendly as most Asian airlines."

Cons: "The seats on the second flight were smaller and we had no flight console (no movies, usb charge..)"

Cons: "Excellent"

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "The crew is excellent"
Cons: "The seats area are too small my knees hurt as they hit just the edge of the food tray, impossible flight with the seat other than straight as you will be disturbing a lot the other passengers, although unfortunately some people do not care about the confort of the others"

Pros: "Loved the food. The crew members were extremely dedicated to making your flight go smoothly. They were very good."
Cons: "Bumpy on the way back."

Cons: "Called to change date. Thy did not take credit card payment over the phone for a stupid reason. Asked me to go to a thy office no later than 10.30 am the next day. Every airline grabs the money, these "very smart" thy admin has developed rules to make passengers' life's inconvenient. Highly not recommended. Lousy airline. Broke my luggage on top of this on my flight from Miami to Istanbul. NOT recommended. Refrain from even suggesting thy to your customers. You have a good name."

Cons: "Nothing really, everything was great! Flight was just extremely long!"

Pros: "Amazing friendly crew. Spot on entertainment!!!"
Cons: "Toilet facilities could have been cleaner"

Pros: "Nothing noteworthy was done well."
Cons: "The boarding staff is incompetent resulting in a 2+ hour boarding time. No control or concern for boarding zones, multiple unnecessary and inconsistent ticket checks, and unclear process. If you took 300 toddlers, made 50 of them gate agents and said board an airplane, you would get about the same result. Food and crew in flight were mediocre. Entertainment system in the seat back doesn’t work, shuts off in the middle of films, and is for some reason controlled by the wrong arm rest. I was in the aisle seat, my arm rest control panel did not control anything, but every time my neighbor shifted her arm it changed the volume on my system. Ethiopian airlines is what failure looks like."

Pros: "Friendly crew. Excellent check-in. Priority bags came off first."

Pros: "Pleasant check-in staff. Friendly flight attendants."
Cons: "Travelers should be told that Gate 2 to Kumasi will be empty when you get there and that you should go around the corner to the transit area and wait for your flight there. They should let you know that they will announce the flight from the transit area."

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."

Pros: "New airplane was comfortable and clean. Food was just okay."
Cons: "We had to transit in Addis (connecting from Dakar) and the whole experience of going through the Addis airport, getting the voucher for the hotel, and going to the hotel was horrible: it took forever going through immigration and getting a simple stamp on the voucher (the latter an unsafe experience and time consuming, with hundreds of people piled up to get those stamps from just two people, crashing again each other, with no order, no lines). Somewhat there has to be a better way to manage this and make the experience safer and more comfortable to everybody. For instance, just enforcing to stay in line and organizing the lines would have saved everybody a lot of time and effort."

Cons: "Good crew"

Cons: "They know better than me"

Pros: "seat not comfortable"
Cons: "more drinks along the way"

Pros: "The arm rest was dismantled and had a sharp edge of metal which sliced my arm and thumb when I sat down. I was promised a new seat and never delivered. Horrendous."
Cons: "See above"

Cons: "USB connection was not working from my seat"

Cons: "Entertainment is non existent. Plane is tatty."

Pros: "Nothing?"
Cons: "Lounge seating and services. Boarding. Lots of uncontrollable people trying to be first to board."

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 drinks"
Cons: "reduce on the spices in the food or provide different options."

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: "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: "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: "Not stopping in Blantyre"
Cons: "No comment"

Pros: "I liked they way how did they respect time ( punctual). They were so nice with passengers."
Cons: "Nothing."

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: "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: "The food was amazing and the plane is more comfortable and you can relax."

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: "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: "Again, the cabin crew where all very nice."
Cons: "Seating space was very tight on this plane."

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."

Cons: "Terrible food (chopped cold spaghetti with no flavor) and terrible service (crew forgot to offer me tea or water, did not come when called) and over one hour late with no apologies given"

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: "It showed a decent tv show but the intercom kept interrupting"
Cons: "Delays leaving, delays arriving, the plane felt dirty"

Pros: "Flying direct from LA to Europe is a challenge. My other flight got cancelled the day of from another airline but i found this flight 12 hours later direct to Ireland for very cheap. Nice staff and amenities. Socks headphones and plenty of LEG ROOM in economy class. Would fly again"

Pros: "aircraft was clean and excellent condition, crew friendly"
Cons: "pre flight information unclear, changing gates and unorganized boarding could be improved."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew on flight were very nice and responding."
Cons: "The flight was delayed but they didn't tell us, they kept saying we are about to board the flight in a few minute. eventually it was an hour late. It's not a big delay but the way they acted like they didn't know anything and didn't tell us anything was not OK. Other then that flight was fine. there is no electricity or multimedia and not even a USB charge!"

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."

Cons: "- terrible food and no snacks provided - Crew was inattentive and did not monitor passengers e.g. standing when seatbelt light is on - bathrooms were rarely cleaned on 18 hour flight - 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: "The service during the flight was perfect"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Smooth Flight."
Cons: "The food."

Pros: "The crew was very nice, beer on the flight is always a nice touch , plenty of food and beverages. Nice collection of movies and music. Food is OK. We had a 10 Hour connection at Addis Ababba, and we were provided with a city tour at the first time, and hotel at the second. I liked the Injira :)"
Cons: "Overall, it's kinda depressing to fly with Ethiopian, the whole experience, from the colors of the uniforms, to the big African people, there was not enough room to seat next to other person, we and some people we met on the flight experienced the same thing. Addis Ababba was very not welcoming, we had a small tour at the city, the people are aggressive, we heard a lot of "farengie" all the time - "foreigners", everything was very expensive, because tourist have a lot of money... they are not afraid to touch you, even at the face. if somebody offers you guiding, they will ask for money later on and will take you to expensive places."
