Lost my baggage, delayed baggage still waiting

Paid full SQ fare but return trip was on scoot and without any entertainment and no given choice for food.

Good

information guide where to go next gate.

Again fly

Delays were given at intervals. So we were informed

Cons: "Poor customer service and lack of care for loyal passengers"
Cons: "Left 45 minutes late though we boarded on time. Pretty bad for a 50 minute in the middle of the morning."
Pros: "When the seat folded down (business class) into a bed, it gave almost a twin size bed that was flat."
Cons: "Being in business class, I had expected the food to be better. Also, the red wines offered were only a sub selection of the ones in the menu."
Cons: "Raise the cabin temperature"
Cons: "The lunch part at the end was a little late we had just had a snack and a small sandwich so we didn't eat a lot. But food was great!"
Cons: "crew isnt very careful in serving the food but its not really that bad. but im just comparing it from my previous flights so i think that group of FA's can do better. And the food was served a bit a late so they dont have time to serve hot beverage anymore."
Cons: "Flight way too cold"
Pros: "Handset to control screen didn’t work. Airline reimbursed me with $75 voucher for inflight duty-free shop."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Short and sweet. Flight left on time and landed about 15 mins early. Crew was wonderful"
Pros: "As a frequent flyer, I have found out that the few dollars i spend more on SQ is well worth it"
Pros: "Everything on time and smooth. Great service. Great pillows and. Plenti snacks anytime I want it. Very comfortable seats. Entertainment System fabulous."
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice, attentive and joyful!"
Cons: "Sitting in a middle seat. Was told at the jetway counter no aisle or window seats were available. I saw no fewer than 5 empty aisle seats in my area."
Cons: "Cabin temperature was really hot."
Cons: "leg space."
Pros: "great crew service. my first time flying with singapore airlines and they delivered"
Cons: "Seats in economic class are not too contraint in space, food was good and entertainment system quite nice with large si play screen and large movie selection"
Pros: "The service from the Singapore Airlines is always impeccable. The food is delicious. The business class seat is spacious and wider than all the US airlines. There are plenty storage space in your seat space. The entertainment system has many choices and has a lot new release movies and shows."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the ride on Boeing 777 is not as smooth as the Airbus'. The noise in the cabin is louder. The seat is comfortable but the bed is not. First, the flat bed is not transformed by a button and it needs a physical person to flip it over. The mat is thin and I can feel some hard edges while lying down. The noise from the engine transmits to the bed and it is hard to sleep even with the noise cancellation headphone."
Pros: "Liked the service"
Cons: "Nothing special."
Pros: "Good crew service"
Cons: "poor boarding arrangement. passenger did not follow the boarding group arrangement boarding the plane."
Pros: "friendly staff top Service top Inflight"

Cons: "one of the oldest planes i ever used"
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: "Food was good"
Pros: "The on-board crew was polite and humble. Food served was delicious and the flight reached on time."
Cons: "The flight was quite old, was a bit surprised as the route seems very busy. Our seat 36J and K interestingly had no windows. First time flew on a flight with no window row."
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: "SQ always has top quality service and that came through today."
Pros: "Food, movies, support, were all wonderful."
Pros: "Staff was the best, always smiling and going beyond expectations to assure you enjoy your flight and I certainly did. Take off was a breeze. Landing a little bumpy but nothing to cry about. I will fly Singapore whenever possible from now on."

Pros: "the flight time was quick , by the time you took off you practically were preparing for landing"

Pros: "Attention to detail, good leg room, entertainment options and a brand new plane"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "The sevice was on point. Flight attendants were beautiful and worked harder than any other airline I have been on. The uniforms were on point too.

Pros: "In-flight Entertainment. Orderly & on-time boarding."
Cons: "Food selection was limited given we were traveling Economy class."
Pros: "The flight experience was pretty great overall.."
Cons: "I didn't like that interacting with their websitewas not very iser friendly or reliable. While most domestic airlines allow you to easuly interact with your itinerary I pretty much had to just show up and hope everything worked out. Also no alerts or other functions."
Pros: "Great food and fantastic service"
Cons: "Needs more legroom"
Pros: "I enjoyed the entertainment, food, boarding was easy, crew gave a warm welcome and was comfortable"
Cons: "I'm good with everything as there was really no down side"
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "The food, the seating, the upgrade, the very polite and attentive staff. I thanked them, and for that, they gave me a hand written note and a set of cards. So sweet. Totally worth it to fly Singapore."
Cons: "I didn't like how Vayasan and Singapore airlines telephone check in both claimed they could not upgrade. It was part of the policy/seating I bought. They were wrong, the airlines at San Francisco airport did it without blinking, after checking my visa status."
Pros: "Excellent service by SingaporeAirlines. Nothing more to ask for... everything was very good."
Cons: "the food I pre-ordered wasn't available in one of the meals (premium economy class)"

It's getting to the point in life that a flight in coach in those little seats for 9 to 15 hours is just too cramped. This was a packed flight with nearly every center seat taken. Good for Qatar airlines, which is a terrific airline, but its tough to ride in those little seats on long-haul flights

Qatar is undoubtedly the best airline in the world. Very impressed with their all around service and customer care.

The airport staff of Qatar airlines was UNFRIENDLY and UNHELPFUL. They all acted like we were bothering them. They gave no help in moving from one station to another. In general they gave an extremely bad first impression of Qatar airlines!!

Pros: "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: "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: "My FA from IAH to DOH was outstanding. She made sure I was comfortable the whole flight"
Pros: "Great crew and food. Nice economy class."
Pros: "Qsuite is the best flight experience I've ever had by a long, long way."
Pros: "i like the service of qa. its amazing."
Cons: "none at all"
Pros: "Smoth 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: "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"

Cons: "No internet. Limited movie options."
Pros: "The plane from Johannesburg to Doha was Fine but not as wonderful and comfortable As flight from Doha to Chicago"

Pros: "Staff were professional, food was good and seats were comfortable."
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: "landed safely"
Cons: "Had to claim bags at Doha and go through multiple security screenings to board connecting flight. At one point all the security was not functioning and we were packed up in lines. Barely had time to stop at the restroom before final security check where it was all so disorganized. After that check we were told that if we left we had to go through security again. Would have been nice to know that upfront. It was a madhouse going through that final security check and my husband's wallet was lost for a bit. No one really tried to help and we were told to move aside. Finally someone saw that it had fallen beside one of the counters. It was all horrible. Because of all this our 5 hour layover was a hassle with no time for food, etc. The whole airport experience was confusing and badly handled."
Pros: "Excellent in every way. Clearly a top tier airlines. I will choose Qatar Airlines at every opportunity."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Kayak/priceline re-booked my flight for my sister and I from SAA to BA, but failed to completely reissue us tickets. When we checked in for the flight, we had no ticket for the first leg of the flight, but we had tickets for the remaining flights. We immediately called to fix this problem, but due to slow customer service, we weren't issued tickets in time and the flight left without us. We missed all remaining connecting flights and were forced to buy New tickets. Now we have to work with kayak/priceline to get all my money back due to their error. We came back a day later than expected and missed going back to work."
Pros: "Excellent Cabin Crews, Flights on time"
Cons: "Food is mediocre at best, comfort on 787 is terrible."
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: "Seat space. Stevice. Terminal."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Attendant was rude and never really finished service, never remembered any requests and consistently skipped guests when providing food or drink service, cabin kept oscillating between either too hot or too cold."
Pros: "Food is palatable. Crew are acommodating"
Cons: "Many of the films have no English subtitle"
Cons: "We took off in a terrible storm with lightning striking all around the plane. Very rough, lightning which scared the hell out of both me and my wife."

Nothing

I'm a constant Etihad passenger but this is the first I felt uncomfortable, firstly the seat are small, turning the arrangement of seat from 2 rows to 3 rows, flight was delayed, food was bad, what happen Etihad?

Unusually slow checking process. Can improve on that. Food was okay but can improve on that also.

The fact that my flight from LHR to Abu Dhahbi is cancelled, I am only frustrated about not being home. I most probably will never fly Etihad again.

Cons: "Slight inconvenience having to wait for a connecting flight, which delayed our arrival plans at the destination...."
Pros: "the staff was very helpful"
Cons: "the touchscreen didn’t always work"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable in economy and entertainment system was excellent."

Pros: "It got me from a to b"
Cons: "I'm just not going to go with Etihad in the future."
Pros: "All of the above"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "I asked for dental kit and flight crew gave me one."
Pros: "Crew friendliness"
Pros: "Staff"
Cons: "Seat discomfort"
Pros: "Everything was almost perfect."
Cons: "Update your movie list."
Pros: "Everything was fine, but"
Cons: "Frigid temps on board The snacks were sad"

Cons: "There wasn't anything not to like."
Pros: "first class service. Extra blanket, mealtime is anytime, seats recluned fully"
Cons: "no first class kit with socks. My feet get cold on the plane and the socks would have helped"
Pros: "NOTHING!"
Cons: "Shambolic boarding process # Surly Cabin Crew + very slow meal/drink service# Very uncomfortable seats # Inedible food in Economy Class # In-Flight entertainment very limited # Lastly, disgusting state of hygiene in the Toilets! AVOID ETIHAD AT ALL COSTS!"
Pros: "They had to delay the flight for those who were arriving from Durban because of the delayed flight."
Pros: "Getting home"
Cons: "only served breakfast shortly after 8am take off .no other meal served.arrived Abu Dhabi 7pm. kept having to ask for drinks."
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."
Pros: "Meals are served promptly and on a regular basis. Selection of entertainment is good but needs updating."
Cons: "Boarding was a chaos at the Abu Dhabi airport, they were just calling out for the Business Class and passengers who are disabled and those who are travelling with children to board first when everybody came to line up. Nobody from the ground staff even asked them to give way for those who are boarding first or announced what zone are they boarding next. Also, i used the mobile app to check in, i am definitely sure i chose an isle seat (you can see it on the seat map during online check in) but i was surprised to see that i got a window seat."
Pros: "I had a whole row to myself! Fantastic service, very friendly crew, and great movie selection."
Pros: "All"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "The planes are comfortable and the crew are all very nice and helpful! I had not read the carry-on baggage restrictions well and my bag ended up being just a little too big so it had to be checked. Although it wasn't a good situation for me, it was my fault and I appreciate that you hold to your policy!"
Pros: "Was impressed with the entertainment, informative and comfortable"
Cons: "It is imperative that the crew insures that the safety measures and instructions are adhered to... But I must say it wasn't so... For instance a passenger in my ile was busy on the phone while we were preparing for for take off... And he wasn't the only one... Unfortunetly... Safety before all... Thank you... Will fly with you again..."
Pros: "Good choice of entertainment. Food is better than most of the airlines."
Cons: "Boarding experience is horrible. Every time you need to board a bus to get to the terminal in AbuDhabi. Why can't they get more gates for better boarding. Why should we go through another security check as soon as you arrive in AbuDhabi ? I have never seen this any other airport."
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."
Cons: "they have a uncomfortable seats in a long flights and comfortable seats in short flights like Abo Dhabi - Bahrain"
Cons: "The Food is bad."
Pros: "Perfect from start to finish. A beautiful experience."
Cons: "Nothing-everything was amazing on this flight. We boarded a little late, but made up the time during transit. Ground staff in Perth airport was excellent."
Cons: "The seats on the 777-333 model in economy class are the WORST I have ever experienced. Extensive neck and back paid from cramped and poorly designed seats. You are going to start losing passengers, including this one who will switch airlines. A glass of wine was so cheap and acidic I found myself running to the bathroom within 15 minutes. The food was horrible. Goodbye Etihad--I can do better."
Cons: "One of the flights ran out of blankets. It was freezing in the cabin"
Pros: "Check in in Frankfurt. Black lady. Extremely helpful. Went out of her way. This is the people you need in the front line."

Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "Entertainment could be improved in terms of choices."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "At AMD Staff didn't know about new law for laptop. It is only effective from Abu Dhabi to USA flights. Not from Ahmedabad to Abu Dhabi flight. Only they need extra money for laptop weight."
Cons: "plane was an older model a bit noisy inside"
Pros: "The food was pretty good for airline meals. We really made good use of the entertainment system which had many great movies and a kids interactive touchscreen. This entertainment system made the flight! Boarding was quick and easy and the ammenty packagfes (eye covers headphones socks ear plugs etc.) and a kids activity book was also great."
Cons: "Food not good. Just one type of food"
Pros: "Flight took off on time and arrived early. This is so important when we have connecting flights that are about one hour away from arrival time."
Cons: "There was nothing not to like. Great service"
Pros: "Flight was comfortable and the staff was attentive and friendly. The food was goiod and the seat spacious and comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding was chaos in Abu Dhabi. Business class passengers were not given priority boarding and were forced to stand in long ques in the heat and to be squeezed into a bus with all the others. This happened both in my outbound and return flights. This meant queing in the heat out on the tarmac with the economy passengers."
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Staff not treating Indians properly but treating Caucasian like lords."
Pros: "In air service"
Cons: "leg room and boarding delays"
Pros: "Etihad airways is amazing! The business class is top notch, the flight attendants were wonderful and provided amazing service without even being asked. I would recommend this airline to everyone."
Pros: "The food was was alright."
Cons: "Major first flight to Abu Dhabi has been canceled. That took place around 5 hours. Then the whole journey has been rebooked and I reached the final destination after 10 hours of the previous schedule with lost baggage."

Entertainment is non existent on the new 737 Max800

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

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

Cons: "The travel was very good"

Pros: "The food was good, seats were quite comfortable and the crew was awesome"

Cons: "The toilets floors could be cleaned often. The food service cart could move for urgent pass to the toilet."
Pros: "I liked the crew. They are kind."
Cons: "The boarding in Addis was an absolute nightmare. No one could figure out where to go and when. Mombasa and Nairobi flight boarding was mixed. I've never seen anything like this. There was not enough room in the boarding area so everyone was pushing and shoving. I can't recommend Ethiopian airways to anyone after this experience."
Pros: "Service, the entertainment selection, just everything seemed perfect"
Pros: "The customer service from crew members"

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: "can improve on the food"
Pros: "Plane size, entertainment options and food were all great. Lots of free drinks available and we got plenty of wine. Blankets and pillows were great also."
Cons: "Great service. Plane took off a few minutes late but nothing major."
Pros: "The worst airline company I've ever used"
Pros: "food and beer were fine"
Cons: "4 flights ,4 delays. poor customer service . every thing is very slow ."
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"
Pros: "all"
Cons: "none"
Cons: "Chairs were not reclining. Asked for blanket and didn't get one so I was cold."
Pros: "Cabin crew were all charming."
Cons: "Unfortunately, I had to request earphones (which were not supplied in the seat pocket in front of me) five times from three different attendants over the course of an hour and a quarter before I was given them. This was not just so I could watch a movie but because the quality of the plane's public address system made it very difficult to listen to the announcements from the captain and the crew. Listening on earphones I was able to hear everything clearly. Why it had to take so long just to give me earphones I don't know."
Pros: "Great prices, and helpful staff"
Cons: "The food was mediocre, almost poor."
Pros: "Excellent chicken dish"
Pros: "When I originally booked this trip it was with one connection and a 16 hour commute time. They added legs to my trip which significantly increased travel time. I tried to cancel my flight because I booked the flight with the necessity of arriving by specific days and times and they insisted on charging me for it so I just forfeited my seat and trip all together. There's nothing good to say about Ethiopian airlines."
Cons: "They are very unprofessional and unhelpful and I'll never book them again."
Cons: "Crew was not friendly and seemed to ignore my requests. Seat was not comfortable. Food was okay."
Pros: "aircraft was clean and excellent condition, crew friendly"
Cons: "pre flight information unclear, changing gates and unorganized boarding could be improved."
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 staff on Ethiopian airlines is great. Food was palatable."
Cons: "Boarding from the front and back of the plane is a terrible idea, especially when the gate agents allow most of the aircraft to board at the same time. Also, on flights longer than three hours, they should use a plane with more entertainment (bigger plane). It was cramped and uncomfortable both legs."
Pros: "Not much. Will not fly them again."
Cons: "Poor service, poor airport facilies, old aircraft, very limited entertainment, fool was tasteless"
Pros: "Paid about 1000 round trip. Staff was attentive and respectful specially addis to LA. New aircraft was good and comfortable."
Cons: "Entertainment needs to have more recent blockbuster. Food variety should be expanded, need more choice"
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: "My daughter's entertainment system crashed after 20 minutes. She ended up sleeping so I watched a movie. When she woke up, we were going to switch seats, but I tried to turn it back on and mine wasn't working. (By the end of the flight, only maybe 10-20% were using theirs as many others crashed as well.) The food was very boring. At one point I was looking for a flight attendant and couldn't find a single one anywhere in coach."
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: "Smooth Flight."
Cons: "The food."
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"
Pros: "We are so tired of showing up our passports many times in the ethiopian air lines. Overall we had a very good trip and the crews were so nice."
