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!"
Pros: "Crew was receptive"
Cons: "Food boarding"
Pros: "The crew was exceptional! Seat was comfortable and extra seat not occupied next to me giving me extra elbow room also in addition to sufficient leg room."
Cons: "I would have a few suggestions but it would rise the price of ticket significantly. We got what we paid for."
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: "Crew is good. Flight got delayed"
Cons: "Food is good."
Pros: "Everything was GREAT!"
Pros: "Service by the crew was outstanding, but special mention to Deepika who made sure I had a Business Class experience out of this world, always smiling and checking if I needed anything"
Cons: "The food and the wine selection did not impressed me. Qatar needs to make some changes."
Pros: "On time. No problems"
Pros: "Crew was really amazing."
Cons: "Wifi not working- huge disappointment. Seats a bit hard on A350. The overhead bins on the inside suitable only for tall people."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "The on flight entertainment is great. It’s very accommodating especially for long flights."
Cons: "Onboarding was ridiculous. They merged two gates together with no instructions to the large crowd of people boarding the plane. We were scheduled to start boarding at a certain time and we didn’t actually board until 45 minutes later. When we asked the attendants when we would begin boarding and did they have any instructions they were extremely rude, laughing with one another and taking selfies. When we we asked for the third time they brushed us off with a time frame. It was extremely disappointing."
Pros: "Very good crew"
Cons: "8 hr layover in Doha"
Pros: "Had always liked the airline and on board crew members"
Cons: "Ground crew members in Doha airport need attitude check. been spotting these too often. On Board crew members are much better."
Pros: "Older plane Older entertainment system"
Cons: "Older plane Older entertainment system"
Pros: "Food, entertainment options, comfortable seats, warm blankets"
Cons: "My volume did not work well on the entertainment system."
Pros: "Stellar crew -- super friendly, served water/juices constantly, polite, attentive. To be commended Great choice of movies and entertainment but no wifi???"
Cons: "This was an older 777 -- no wifi -- pretty surprising on such a key flight at DOH-JFK! This is not the airline's fault but I had a crazy lady next to me who was very disoriented, who could not speak English and needed assistance. No one would deal with her! She had a little pouch with her name on it -- like a UM -- so someone knew something was not right when they put her on the flight. I bought drinks inside the terminal for this 14 hour flight but they were all confiscated at the additional security at the gate!! WTF"
Cons: "carry-on did not fit on center overhead compartment unless I put it side ways (Same carry-on suitcase fit nicely on Emirates airplanes, so the carry-on overhead compartments have been made smaller on Qatar on purpose or by engineering error, and I will not fly Qatar airlines again. Less food options. I went to the Gally and they only had kitkat bars for food. Emirates offer fruit, sandwiches, and many choices at ALL TIMES of the flight for economy class passengers. Entertainment computer (Android based system) ran slow and out of memory at times. Seats were not comfortable for 12hrs flight. My butt was starting to hurt. I did not have this issues on Emirates flights."
Pros: "They do not provide hotel service even in a 11 hour layover saying the ticket is pomotional. If that is the case, why they sell tickets on promotion? Cheap mentality"
Pros: "Comfortable, on time"
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."
Cons: "The planes weren't as comfortable as others I've been on like the double deckers of Emirates. Their economy class was NOTHING special. Everyone talks about how superior Qatar is, but I found nothing special about it...the seats, the food, the entertainment were all basic and nothing fancy. The crew, while very sweet, seemed inexperienced and green to me..but they were lovely and that's all that ultimately matters."
Pros: "Excellent service from the crew. Flight on time."
Pros: "The plane from Johannesburg to Doha was Fine but not as wonderful and comfortable As flight from Doha to Chicago"
Cons: "Some crews are not accommodating."
Pros: "Again, the crew were top notch"
Cons: "Comfort and available entertainment were so-so"
Cons: "They announced everything in English and Arabic and repeated the same announcement multiple times. The entertainment is good but frustrating that it is constantly interrupted with announcement about everything. I have never heard that many on any other plane. The announcement about customs paperwork was long and done 2 times in English and 2 times in Arabic. There safety video is soooo long and again is done in two languages. It was just all too much. Besides that everything was great."
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Hard cushioning and narrow seats on the 787"
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: "Great airline...nice staff, very attentive and polite."
Pros: "SPECIALLY THE CREW SERVICE EXCELLENT"
Pros: "Service & cleanliness."
Cons: "Nothing I remember."
Pros: "Very spacious, good food & service"
Cons: "is it true that Qatar treats the passengers coming to US differently than the passengers going out of US. I noticed that the crew was giving menu cards for dinner when coming back to US. Food quality is very ad, quantity is small also. same story with snacks. they don't offer enough food overall. The crew should be trained better for int'l passengers."
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."
Cons: "They supposed to provide Wheel chair for my elderly mother in Law who had a foot fracture, was very hard /painful to walk. I confirmed the wheelchair option well advance before her travel date in Qatar Airways Web site. I got the confirmation also in the Qatar Airways Web site. I usually fly with my family as I have a big family with couple of children and elderly. I will never fly Qatar again, this was the 1st and the last fly with Qatar airways."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!!!!!"
Cons: "Again, our flight was cancelled without notification!!!!!"
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."
Cons: "The first flight of my journey was delayed which made me late for my next two connecting flights. I arrived on vacation a day late. Paid for a hotel and activities that I never used. My bag arrived 5 days late. I had to buy clothes on a daily basis which ate up more time and fun money. The airline gave me nothing except empty promises and dismissive apologies."
Cons: "Time of flight"
Cons: "I am hard of hearing. It would be appreciated it you would offer more movies with English subtitles."
Pros: "Great Crew, seat space was great too"
Cons: "The cabin sound proofing can be improved. Especially the clicity clack from passengers eating. The pre boarding space was very limited."
Cons: "They changed my seats twice and it was near the bathrooms and I hated it. They refuse to give me a better place when I requested. I didn't choose the seats they put me in and the crews couldn't handle the other passengers attitued and actions. I asked for a below but they didn't bring it to me."
This flight was excellent. Left and arrives ahead of schedule. The plane was only half full and they actually let people lay down in rows of empty seats. The crew was super kind to a large family with a bunch of kids who wanted to be closer together. I think Delta purposely avoids turbulence more than other airlines because I never experience jarring flights, even the red eyes. They served two meals onboard (which were honestly pretty gross but they are doing their best). Also the newer planes have really cool lighting that helps with jet lag because they mimic the sunset and sunrise colors, and have polarized windows that extend “night time” until they are ready to land in the morning. Pretty cool.
Cons: "Seat wasn't comfortable"
Pros: "The crew is nice"
Cons: "Boarding was horrible."
Pros: "Very nice, pleasant crew."
Cons: "Extended turbulence was very uncomfortable. One toilet out of service. Otherwise good flight."

Pros: "I loved being upgraded to first class and the crew was so attentive."
Cons: "Nothing, glad this was a better experience than the trip to Miami."
Cons: "Seats a lil tight"
Cons: "uncomfortable seats, thin seat cushions"
Cons: "When we booked this trip via Kayak, we thought that we were booking on Westjet. Westjet knew nothing about the flight when we tried to check in."
Pros: "The plane was nice and the entertainment on the flight was great! Flight crew very friendly."
Cons: "Our plane was delayed multiple times and we were not provided an explanation as to why. For as expensive as this fare was the fact that Delta was at fault for the delay and did not offer any compensation for that delay is frustrating. A few extra free snacks doesn’t cut it."
Pros: "Crew was good seat comfortable"
Cons: "Better snacks"
Cons: "It was lovely. It was my flight from nyc to dc that was terrible."
Cons: "the flight was delayed and so I missed my train home"
Pros: "Amazing service from crew"
Cons: "Friendly crew and lots of good free snacks!"
Cons: "Bigger personal space"
Cons: "Food was ok...cramped space"
Pros: "the worst thing that I've traveled in my life I do not travel again by delta 3 hours without food and without taking or water we were not given that service is the worst its employees are a disaster"
Cons: "the worst thing that I've traveled in my life I do not travel again by delta 3 hours without food and without taking or water we were not given that service is the worst its employees are a disaster"
Pros: "Food was good and plentiful. I definitely left the flight feeling full."
Cons: "I missed check in (not flight) by 5 minutes. Delta did nothing. I called Aeromexico. After 30 minutes on hold they told me there was nothing they could do. Called Kayak, you guys said you couldn’t do anything. Finally I got some 3rd party phone number I was given by Kayak. I called the number and it was not in service. In all my years using this app this was the biggest disappointment ever!!!!"
Pros: "The people were all really nice and helpful and fun. Food was great. Watched a fun movie."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit unpleasant when we had to stand in a crowd before the shuttle came."
Pros: "Food and entertainment was good"
Cons: "The bathroom I used was disgusting."
Pros: "Hot towel was a plus"
Cons: "The seats weren't that comfortable"
Pros: "The flight attendant, Winsom, was fantastic."
Cons: "Did not like being assigned a seat next to the bathroom and having an aisle full of people waiting to get in."
Cons: "No wifi, no leg room"
Cons: "It takes time and worries to find the air train and Aeroflot registration."
Pros: "Great and friendly crew"
Cons: "baggage rules, check in with baggage, change fee for flight when it was not customers issue that caused the 5 min delay! Unable to reach reservation desk on line or via phone (neither was the gate agent)"
Pros: "The staff. They were very helpful and polite!"
Cons: "We didn’t leave on time"
Cons: "There was a change in our flight. According to Delta you didn't confirm every leg of our flight and the plane was over booked."
Cons: "Basic economy has way too many restrictions"
Pros: "Loved the customer service & movie options"
Cons: "The flight only had snacks for free; wish sandwiches would be given for lunch"
Pros: "Good flight crew"
Cons: "Flight was delayed with no explanation."
Pros: "Nice people. Very helpful."
Cons: "LOST MY BAG IN BOSTON BEFORE EVEN TAKING OFF!!!! Did not make it, and then won't deliver it when it makes it to Kathmandu! This is most distressing."
Pros: "The airline did not disappoint and the customer service were very professional"
Cons: "Make sure the new signs are posted in all airports for boarding. That will help control people at the entrance"
Pros: "Great gate agent at JFK on the layover."
Cons: "No assigned seats on second flight til we got to JFK."
Pros: "Entertainment, food having only two seats on our side of aisle."
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "We did eventually get there"
Cons: "What should have been a 90 minute flight took over 4 hours! Between mechanical failure, overbooking and waiting for gates and sky bridges we missed our connection. Then when they rebooked our connection on a British Airways flight, BA couldn't pull up the tickets and we wasted yet another hour while Virgin Atlantic and Delta both passed the buck as to who was responsible for correcting it so we could get on our rebooked flight, which we BARELY did with only 2 minutes to spare!"
Pros: "The organization and speediness shown during boarding the aircraft and the perfect timing on departure"
Cons: "The tv screen corresponding to my seat 9A was not working so could not see any movies nor information during the whole flight SDQ to JFK. The condition was reported twice to the flight attendance but was not able to correct it even after resetting the TV settings twice"
Cons: "I wouldn't rate this flight on a five-star grid--I give it 0.0 stars. Delta's economy seats are so tiny that even a small person like myself finds it agonizing to ride in them for a moderate-length flight. We need aggressive regulation of our airlines to prevent the unconscionable and humiliating way they treat economy passengers. It's not safe, healthy or humane to ask human beings to sit for hours in tiny spaces with very little air (on top of everything else, the plane was mercilessly hot the whole time). Next time I will choose a European carrier--even the discount Euro carriers are better than any US airline."
Pros: "They had good entertainment for free. There were movies, tv shows, and games."
Cons: "The plane was delayed for 5 hours and the ride was longer than expected."
Pros: "We upgraded our seats to Delta Comfort, at a cost of round $90 per flight. It was well worth it!"
Pros: "Comfortable, courtesy, good service."
Cons: "Please, there is never a vegetarian option. Many people do not want to eat meat. Very easy to offer a sandwich with vegetables or a little bowl of rice and beans..."
Pros: "Quick, clean"
Cons: "I was in the back seat"
Cons: "Price of food"
Pros: "The prior flight arrived late and then due to what appeared to be some mechanical issue, the plane was towed into the gate at about the time we were due to board. I mention this only because this was the only glitch during the rest of the flight. Loved the wide variety of entertainment available inflight, the AC outlets on EVERY row, and though I didn't need it this time, the availability of Wi-Fi Internet is appreciated. And though we left 40 minutes late, we made up part of the time and arrived only 20 min later than scheduled. Bravo Delta! I'll have to check out your version of Mileage Plus."
Cons: "I couldn't understand the gate agent's announcements due to language issue but most of all competing announcements from the gate behind me. One of the flight attendents was more bossy I felt than necessary. She told me not to put my backpack in the overhead bin, even though there was enough space and the back 3rd of the aircraft was half empty (I was in the last loading zone so there weren't many more people after me)."
Cons: "I reserved and paid for Delta comfort and ended up flying AeroMexico and Virgin Atlantic who could care less so I didn't sit comfortably, no wifi and for Virgin Atlantic I had to pay extra to get more legroom! NOT a satisfying experience."
Pros: "The comfort of first class reclining seats."
Cons: "The vegetarian meals consisted of cold grilled vegetables for an appetizer, lunch was underwhelming. So much so I dont remember it The snack was two salads. Regular snacks were Cuban sandwiches or roast beef sandwich. Even the stewards said Inshould complain to Delta. Pretty sad for what the cost of a first class ticket."
Cons: "Slight inconvenience having to wait for a connecting flight, which delayed our arrival plans at the destination...."
Pros: "Crew was fine."
Cons: "The food quality was really bad with no alternatives. All passengers with vegetarian food option were complaining."
Pros: "Planes were good with good leg room"
Cons: "For Asian Veg Meal, they served Paneer for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The spacing between meals was quite large. Entertainment options for adults and kids were quite limited."
Pros: "Overall service"
Cons: "I had to check in my cabin bag"
Cons: "Boarding process very delayed and we tired in this journey"
Pros: "I wish I could remember the fight attendant’s name - she was probably the best flight attendant I’ve ever had"
Cons: "Plane was very crowded as compared to the A380 I flew over on. also the meal services on the Trip over was much better than this return flight"
Pros: "They never cared about non-muslim passenger as the flight is full of muslim passengers."
Pros: "Staff were professional."
Cons: "Too full, busy flight with noisy travelers. Many children were constantly crying and there was too much going on. perhaps staff could suggest that travelers remain quiet or mindful of others who are trying to sleep."
Pros: "Cabin crew were cheerful n helpful"
Pros: "The check-in staff in South Africa were exceptionally pleasant, the food and entertainment were good."
Cons: "The seats were very narrow with little leg-room on the JHB to Abu Dhabi leg of the flight - and I'm a short person."
Cons: "Three of is were travelling and they offered food only l to two of us..i think they thought my three year old doesn't need food..and on my flight to Kochi the crew was so mean.."
Pros: "I had a whole row to myself! Fantastic service, very friendly crew, and great movie selection."
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... Will fly with you again..."
Cons: "DO NOT under any circumstances miss an Etihad Airway flight. They'll make you pay twice the original price of your flight AND a $600 fee for missing your flight. WTF! Why must you pay $600 for missing a flight you ALREADY PAID for. I loved my first experience with Etihad but second time was not as pleasant."
Pros: "I had the opportunity of flying The Apartment from Abu Dhabi to JFK. It was one of the most incredible first class cabin experiences ever. The experience starts when boarding the aircraft and you are personally escorted to your seat and introduced to the several features around you. The space is ample and the cabin has some privacy doors making it feel very exclusive. There is a large couch across the seat which later is converted into a bed. I was offered pijamas and a small closet to hang my clothes right before take off. Once on the air our personal chef introduced himself and explained the different dishes from the menu. I was able to try the steak and the lamb biryani; both were superb. The IES provided a decent selection of western and some middle eastern films as well as a few live news channels. After I woke up our flight attendant explained the on board shower which is also a distinctive feature allowing to feel refreshed before landing. I had another meal before landing which included an appetizer, and entree and a dessert made with roses. The crew was nothing but fantastic and I would love to fly with them again."
Cons: "I was not told what airline lounge I should use at JFK, but the only regret I had was not being able to take a longer flight..."
Cons: "Our connection from NYC was missed due to delay in leaving Abu Dhabi. The NYC connection wasn't request to wait for us, maybe five minutes would have been enough. After that, they took no care to book in a latter flight. They assigned unconfirmed tickets, which were not honored in the other terminals. I was able to get a seat in the third flight after, others were still left waiting. It took us longer to get a 1.5 hours connecting flight than to cross the Atlantic."
Cons: "The airline made it very clear that there is a class system and I felt like a refugee sitting in economy and was not fed well. Flight attendants were very good at ignoring your requests like it was fun."
Pros: "Crew were great"
Cons: "Very noisy with loads of kids, crying babies"
Pros: "The crew was rude. And did not answer when called upon."
Cons: "Nimah... I believe her name was. The stewardess for my area. Row 81k"
Pros: "Great service in their A 380 full floor biz class service from JFK to Abu Dhabi"
Pros: "A little better than the phuket flight but still pretty bad service. Airplane was filthy because crew werent pick up the garbage after breakfast and lunch."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable proably because I was given bassinet seats because of infant traveling with me, though recliner didn't work"
Cons: "I had lot of issues wrt handling my baby. No baby food was provided even after asking twice.No tea or coffee served in timely manner. Need to follow up to ask for tea or coffee. I wouldn't suggest this flight to anyone."
Cons: "Entertainment didn't work on my seat at all. Crew started becomes delayed in responding to the call button and didn't offer good options as substitute."
Pros: "Seat relatively comfortable. Liked pillow that resembled neck pillow."
Cons: "Despite plane not being full, crew seemed to have difficulty serving meals."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly, greeted us with a smile, and were there to help when needed."
Cons: "The food was bad. Requested for Asian Vegetarian Meal on Etihad website but was served the vegetarian option. I also heard a passenger complaining that she requested for a vegetarian food but was given a meal with chicken."
Cons: "horrible flight attendants. no one offered me a drink once and it took a horrendous amount of time once i got up and asked"
Pros: "the crew was good, unlike NY-AUH flight where some crewmembers were arrogant bathrooms were kept clean"
Cons: "zone boarding should be smoother, but people still try to skip the line"
Pros: "Very professional crew and comfortable flight in the A380."
Cons: "There were no seating arrangements at the Gate 61 at Abu Dhabi Airport for the passengers. The pax had to sit on the floor or staircases till it was time for the flight."
Pros: "All was fine."
Cons: "While all was fine a the food could have been a little better, especially when it is a 14 hour flight."
Pros: "The staff for our flight were all extremely friendly and accommodating. They came through the cabin several times with drinks and snacks and ensured we had the most comfortable flight possible. I thought the entertainment choices were excellent and really provided a wide array of genres and a unique multicultural assortment. Meals were very good, served in generous portions, and having a vegetarian diet I was happy to be so easily accommodated. I was lucky enough on this flight to have a row to myself so I could spread out."
Pros: "Flight was spacious better than others."
Cons: "No option to choose kids food in website. Also the vegetarian food was bad. Passengers were made to stand near the door of the flight for around 30min as cleaning was going on. Should have at least left them seated at the waiting area."
Pros: "Awesome Planes... Great service... Nice Staff. Onboard Entertainment was Amazing both for Kids and Adults."
Cons: "The jet airways flight from Abu Dhabi to Ahmedabad."
Pros: "The crew was attentive and genuinely friendly / helpful."
Cons: "Many passengers were rude, standing in the aisle near the entry to the restroom / galley area. The crew repeatedly asked them to sit and they would sometimes ignore then outright and other times sit for a short while only to get up once again. For me the seat cushion was a bit hard for such a long flight."
Pros: "The flight was well managed. The cabin crew were really patient and helpful."
Cons: "The transit and security check at Abu Dhabi airport was horrible. The security check was conducted manually and there was an unnecessary bottleneck that was created."
Pros: "the journey, staff and overall experience"
Pros: "Nothing to like."
Cons: "The check-in cashier was very rude. maybe she should retake the course in hospitality. Again, it was operates by AA so what should I expect?"
Cons: "Can improve quality of pure Veg food and give them more option so that they can travel conveniently"
Cons: "we had a layover for about 7 hours. The airport was cold. But the departure lounge was extremely cold, very uncomfortable. Even wearing a hooded jacket, I was very cold and my hands were numb. And we waited about 3 hours in the departure area."
Pros: "Aircraft fleet and airport is good. Good infrastructure."
Cons: "The cabin crew is not at all courteous. When you start travelling in US, you realize how different the crew's attitude is. When you want to say no to the customer, atleast make an effort to accommodate the needs of the customer first. Minor requests made by the passengers should be accommodated. You just rudely say No. Learn something from American customer service!!"
Cons: "Your airline lost my baggage. I missed my connecting flight in Paris to Bordeaux and had to pay 200 euros to get another flight. I am very disappointed"
Cons: "They didn't let me change any seats. I wasn't able to select my own seat to begin with when checking in. When I told the crew that I had recently had a surgery, no one really made any effort to actually find me a better seat. They didn't even get back to me."
Cons: "there are bed bugs in the seat which has caused serious problem in my back (this is not expected and crew does not even basic medicine, i have to bear the pain till i reach the home. Also the entertainment is not updated which is 2 months older and not updates since."
Cons: "Food was tasteless and uninspired. There is no place to request meal when checking in. I wanted to change mine from LVML to AVML because the quality of food on my onward trip was terrible. Sadly, you do not provide that option on your website and my call to Etihad did not do the trick. Same shabby food. Plane was more full than in my onward trip - smelly people, loud kids that prevent sleeping, narrow seats with poor leg room. Will NEVER fly Etihad again. I will happily pay more for one of the better airlines. And I will avoid flying through the middle east - many of your patrons do not understand the value of deodorants or lifting the seat up to use the toilet. Ugh!"
Cons: "Horrible food plan. We were served an entire dinner 2 hours before landing in New York and mind you it was morning in New York. Instead of serving breakfast, we were given dinner which was again horrible. Worst food plan ever!"
Pros: "The aircraft was spacious and it allowed one to move about and stretch one's limbs."
Cons: "The spacing between the economy class seats - particularly when the person in front reclines."
Cons: "this does not necessarily reflect in the airline, other than the fact the staff could really not do anything for me in Abu dhabi: the eithad staff handed me an email and told me i had to inform them that way. no designated lost and found, the local police were utterly unhelpful"
Cons: "Better bathroom access for premium economy"
Cons: "Delayed as usual."
Pros: "Smooth price getting boarding pass and we were anytime sit together"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Yes! They were helpful and nice as well on the flight."
Cons: "Mhm.. Nothing."
Pros: "Yes, crew were great"
Cons: "Checkin was seamless. flight comfortable and pleasant. Unfortunately not much can be done about the worst part, which was total immigration disorganization on arrival at JFK. Coming from Rome which is a huge airport, it was shameful to see the difference. Sigh."
Pros: "The crew and the service was excellent."
Cons: "The seating were very uncomfortable the tv screen are small and old fashioned. Compare to other airlines very uncomfortable and they made me check in my carry on bag to charge $60 so disappointed I been taking this carry on for long time no other airline ever made me do that will not recommend"
Cons: "Not canceling our reservations and making our flight back home extremely difficult and hair-raising"
Pros: "The flight attendants"
Cons: "The pilot was too aggressive in regards to the take off and landing, landing was way too hard and fast"
Pros: "The crew was top notch, very pleasant and went the extra mile."
Cons: "My husband and I were assigned seats in a different part of the plane from one another."
Pros: "I wanted to fly british airways because they have newer nicer more modern planes where even coach has electrical plugs. Seats are more comfortable. Imagine my surprise when my flight was changed to American Airlines on a plane that was so old the seats didn’t have inflight entertainment and they were way too small."
Pros: "The movie selection."
Cons: "2 hours stuck on the plane before leaving from London to Columbus, in flight entertainment had to be restarted twice on same flight."
Cons: "3 hours late and I had to pay for my 1 checked bag. The price of the ticket does not include 1 checked bag??!! Seriously price gauging if ever. The airline industry as a whole is ridiculous and NOT user friendly."
Pros: "With almost airlines charging much more while delivering much less, it was a pleasure to take this flight and actually be treated like a consumer who paid a lot of money to fly. They fed us, gave us drinks, and were generally very nice and accommodating."
Cons: "No complaints, other than I wish I could afford first or business class!"
Pros: "Nice seat. Good food. Good service."
Pros: "Personal screen with all recent movies at no charge, my flight was almost 8 hours and I received four times meals and snacks"
Pros: "I was lucky enough to have some really sweet flight attendants and was surprised (though maybe I shouldn't be) that we got a small meal."
Cons: "The economy class seats are just so uncomfortable and as soon as someone puts their seat back it is difficult to see the screen in front of you without putting your seat back as well. I suppose there are worse airlines..."
Pros: "Considering BA cancelled our flight to Milan because our Delta flight to JFK was late....we had to buy 2 more round trip tickets. No one from Kayak or BA helped us.. we were out anithet $1100. ..worst experience ever will never use Kayak again. The right thing to do is for Kayak to refund our original.tickets....since we had no control over our delayed flight but I am sure that will not happen."
Cons: "See above ....."
Pros: "It was a small plane so the crew pulled larger totes and packed them separately. It worked very efficiently given the circumstances."
Cons: "Very tight quarters, but ok for short flight"
Pros: "Wonderful and super friendly crew"
Cons: "Booked flight with my sister 6 months before departure, paid for both tickets at the same time to find out seat assignment not together.... that could be understable only if ticket is purchased at the last minute. We were applicable to switch with another couple who were in the same situation as us....."
Pros: "Our pilot was great. Kept us informed, was pleasant and got us in early. I appreciated the extra information he provided regarding expected turbulance and arrival updates."
Cons: "There wasn't individual entertainment unless i used my own device."
Pros: "NOTHING !! I lost my flight because in the email I received you all put the wrong airline on it and nobody took responsability for it . I ended up paying $311.00 to get the next flight back to Austin ."
Cons: "In the email it was stated that my first flight was with British Airways, so i wasted time making the wrong line . Only to get to the counter and waste more tome trying to find me in the system to then tell me my flight is with American Airline . I double check my email where it clearly shows: 1st flight-British Airway and 2nd flight-American Airline . This is not acceptable, nobody wants to take responsability for sending me the wrong information in the email. Had I know both of my flights were with American Airline I wouldn’t lost my plane because I would make the right line to begin with ."
Cons: "i couldn't get my seat before the flight. Coouldn't even find out it was on American airline. So I couldn't get gluten free meal for any of the legs of my journey and I have celiac's disease. A real problem!!!!!"
Pros: "Just about nothing."
Cons: "Aged plane, aged bitter crew."
Pros: "Arriving on time for the next connection"
Pros: "That it got me home"
Cons: "With one exception, personnel very unfriendly."
Pros: "Roomy seat"
Cons: "Lousy food"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Older plane"
Pros: "I haven't flown AA in a while, I was impressed with the entertainment and food!!! They had a variety of movies. Also, the food was simply but delicious! Cheese and fruit!"
Cons: "Security questions,by Britsh lady they don't know where looking for dangerous people ? I'm spent 1 hour in Heatrow for transfer running from plane to plane .Then she asked me to personal questions .I don't think Brits have rights to ask me where in working and my profession in the USA ?.Im dual Polish US citizen. US and Polish emigration didn't ask me a word .In future did I'm have rights ty o refuse answer personal questions foreign Clerks ?"
Cons: "They closed the counter too early , missed flight Did mot accommodate although I was there 50 minites prior to the flight"
Pros: "Flight departed and arrived on time. Good, friendly, efficient service on flight. Cabin crew took special care to arrange for those with on-going flights and tight connections to be accommodated to make these tight connections."
Cons: "Tight seating and aisles."
Pros: "I paid extra for the bulkhead seats for the leg room, and it was worth it. In general, it was an easy flight."
Cons: "Free seats in economy class are way too squeezed for a 10 hours flight."
Pros: "At least they kept throwing food at us on the plane."
Cons: "Arrived 3 hours early to CDG, and a long line to check a bag. It took so long, eventually they allowed people to cut in line as their flight departure times neared. 2+ hours later, I finally got to a kiosk to print my boarding pass and baggage tag, but now another line to drop off my bag on the conveyor belt. With less than 30 minutes to departure, and still haven't gone through security, I gave up and made my checked bag a carry-on as well. And then tight seats on the plane, with no individual screens (the movie played on a tiny screen 2 rows up in the aisle.)"
Cons: "We boarded, sat on the plane for a while, backed up from the gate, then sat for a while longer. 3 hours later, we had to go back to the gate because we reached the legal limit they can hold us on the plane on the tarmac. Another hour and a half or so later, we finally took off for JFK. We missed our first connecting flight and the second connecting flight I was able to rebook."
Cons: "The flight, listed as a Finnair flight, was operated by American Airlinea. The small domestic plane was cramped and uncomfortable for a cross Atlantic over night flight. The expectation was a European transatlantic airliner. Make sure you check the plane model before you book."
Cons: "Cannot believe how American a treated it's passengers. 3 hour delay to JFK. No apologies. Missed connection to Paris. Not any customer service agents to be found in JFK at 11:30 pm. No explanation on what next. No hotel.. Nada. I'll never travel with American again."
Pros: "More leg room than expected, food was airline food, but not that bad considering. Plenty of beverages, great selection of movies. Hour delay leaving, but arrived only half an hour late."
Pros: "Ice cream as a snack was a nice surprise."
Cons: "This was a nine hour flight and the entertainment system was very old. There were screens in the middle of the plane with the movies chosen for you. On a flight this long, the customer should have options. You also were not able to control your the air. So the flight was freezing! The lunch options were meatballs or cheesy pasta. I thought these were risky. What has happened to chicken?"
Cons: "They would not let me board for being less than 5 minutes late."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I paid for 2 seats with extra legroom to find out that the entire plane was extra legroom. The flight attendants weren't friendly at all. I have had nothing but trouble with American for this past trip. From losing my reservation to this, it has been a nightmare. I hope I never have to fly them again, I tried complaining to customer service. You can't call them ; only email them. I could go on and on. They need lessons with their treatment of their passengers."
Pros: "The stewardess/flight crew were awesome."
Cons: "Airport staff, tight seats and boarding process."
Pros: "Starting with seat selection with an agent, every step of the trip was handled with efficiency and professionalism. The cabin crew saw to my needs and was watchful of each passenger. Communication was provided as needed, food, drink, snacks as well as comfort dispensed smoothly."
Cons: "The delay with our flight leaving Rome was tied to a delay at JFK the evening before, so although there was nothing to be done at the Rome end, it was inconvenient. Also, because we needed to make a connection in New York, this set the stage for delays on the last leg of our journey"
Pros: "The British Airways flight to Europe had on-demand movies, with a screen on the back of the seat in front of you. The American Airlines return flight only had a cabin screen, where everyone watched the same movie. I will say, however, that the two movies I watched were excellent, so the outcome was fine (but given the option, I'd take the BA option of on-demand viewing!)."
Cons: "The seats on the AA weren't quite as comfortable as the BA flight (seats sat pretty straight upright, and not too plush... but all in all, not terribly uncomfortable)."
Pros: "That I slept a bit"
Cons: "Uncomfortable chairs, no Economy plus option, old plane, no individual TVs for private entertainment."
Cons: "multiple delays from American airline in Madrid and Chicago, not giving me good alternative, not owning the issue"
Pros: "The crew was so friendly and helpful and especially kind to my five year old son."
Cons: "The plane was quite old and so the entertainment options were poor for such a long flight."
Pros: "Variety of entertainment."
Cons: "Flight attendant was a little snippy sometimes."
I was surprised that I was put in first class the whole way! Thank you SO MUCH for such a blessing!
On the way in they had vegetarian options but nothing but meat options on the way back. I totally forgot to ask for vegetarian meals when booking my flight, but luckily there were enough items to get me through the flights. A wonderful flight and crew.
Pros: "The food, air crew respectful and dedicated to duty"
Cons: "Everything was perfectly ok"
Pros: "Amazing friendly crew. Spot on entertainment!!!"
Cons: "Toilet facilities could have been cleaner"
Cons: "1 hr delay in departure from Lusaka. Plastic cutlery was difficult to eat with. More frequent water/drinks (or waterbottles instead of little cups) would have been appreciated. Movie options were not as good as other airlines."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for hours in Delhi with no notice, making us spent the night at the airport. The flight was supposed to get to Abidjan around noon, but because of the delay, we missed the connection and the next available flight was the next day which would mean I missed my next flight and a work conference. In Delhi, the Ethiopian Airlines people assured me that it could be worked out in Addis, and that they could change my final destination to get me where I needed to go. However, in Addis, the employees were rude and did not even read the email that the Delhi people sent them. They would not do anything except send me to Abidjan the following day, which was useless since I already had to be in the US by then. The level of service is incredibly poor and disorganized, with many people having to wait for hours to even talk to someone and no information about what needs to be done. In the end, i had to purchase a new ticket to get to my destination. Had I known this was the case in Delhi, and that i would have to purchase a new ticket, I would have done so in Delhi rather than waiting all night and going to Addis. I fly very often and this is both the worse experience and service I’ve ever experienced on a flight, and they weren’t even able to get me to my destination."
Pros: "Fast gate work."
Cons: "Lost luggage and the food and silent movie option (no headphones provided for overhead movie)"
Pros: "Land crew attention was polite and nice"
Cons: "Restrooms on board was dirty, no toilette paper nor tissues. One fight attendant was particularly impolite, hitting and pushing instead of asking"
Cons: "Entertainment is non existent. Plane is tatty."
Pros: "crammed seats, meh food first experience with ethiopian, wasn't great"
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: "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: "The crew were quite homely."
Cons: "The orderliness during boarding needs more work"
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: "The plane was spacious"
Cons: "-The flight entertainment wasn't working -There was a delay, but no one from the airline communicated; we were just waiting and the waiting area didn't have sits"
Cons: "Always delaying, catastrophic food."
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: "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: "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: "The flight attendants."
Cons: "The aircraft. Its an older and much used 777 200. Seats, bathrooms, etc have lots of mileage. Needs overhaul."
Cons: "The security line was very long and one security monitor check person was holding up the line - taking her time. Even the othe security people at the gate were trying to push her along. Most of the people getting on this flight had a short layover time. Escape ially with the previous flight being late."
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: "I had to purchase the upgrade to business class at the airport. On your site business class was not available."
Cons: "Chairs were not reclining. Asked for blanket and didn't get one so I was cold."
Pros: "Cabin crew were all charming."
Cons: "Unfortunately, I had to request earphones (which were not supplied in the seat pocket in front of me) five times from three different attendants over the course of an hour and a quarter before I was given them. This was not just so I could watch a movie but because the quality of the plane's public address system made it very difficult to listen to the announcements from the captain and the crew. Listening on earphones I was able to hear everything clearly. Why it had to take so long just to give me earphones I don't know."
Pros: "Great prices, and helpful staff"
Cons: "The food was mediocre, almost poor."
Pros: "New plane."
Cons: "Addis airport is always a mess. Security check takes 30 mins+, gates are changed without announcements and there are no display mentioning flight or destination at the gate. For the flight, food not great and service slow."
Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised at the entertainment. Other than that, everything was pretty good. Nothing stood out as exceptional and nothing was particularly bad."
Cons: "The seats weren't the most comfortable, but on a 10 hour flight, nothing is."
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: "Everything including crew members ."
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: "Very kind and attentive staff."
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 short time it took to get to my destination. The great work done by flight attendants."
Cons: "The small seat I got."
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."
Cons: "I ordered a vegan food. The crew had difficulties in delivering this simple thing"
Pros: "EVERY THING WAS ON TIME"
Cons: "FOOD NOT GOOD"
Cons: "Flight delay"
