Pros: "Flight attendants are friendly and helpful."

Cons: "Honestly can’t think of anything"

Cons: "Seats are tiny and uncomfortable!"

Cons: "The connection time was too long"

Cons: "No overhead fans and seats were not very comfortable."

Pros: ";Flight attendants very attentive;"
Cons: "Leg space far too tight; could barely move; Unable to see TV screen due to angle, even at max tilt; Food was inedible; perhaps acceptable as dog food; Toilet seat would not stay up for male to pee. Worst international aircraft I've ever experienced. Recommend upgrading before selling any more seats."

Pros: "great flight"

Cons: "Too hot. Too late. Staff could have been more accommodating. Online checkin was impossible."

Pros: "Mobile check in worked well. Onboard service is very good, with decent food and complimentary beverages including beer and wine. Seats are relatively comfortable. Extensive selection of TV and movie entertainment."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit helter skelter. It’s a rather annoying that selecting seats is only available for an extra fee. The A340s used on this route are getting a little on the old side, and the once state of the art in seat entertainment system has a tendency to crash frequently and require lengthy reboots."

Pros: "Class staff"
Cons: "Bit of a delay"

Pros: "friendly ,respectful, helpful,informative"
Cons: "the very long layovers.i did not enjoy complications to find a place to rest between long flights."

Pros: "Crew was great. This flight is what I would expect from Swiss."

Pros: "Great service; Very comfortable lie flat beds with lots of leg room"

Pros: "The flight was perfect until we hit horrible turbulence. 1 out of every 4 people was throwing up. We had to redirect to Milan."
Cons: "Swiss air is completely inept at handling a very normal reroute due to weather. 200 displaced people are standing in line. I’ve been here 5 hours and have not heard a word of announcement from them, our questions are rudely thwarted, and they continue to take half-an-hour to an hour per person with uncertain results. Give use new flights or a hotel."

Pros: "Flight was good"
Cons: "There was a one hour wait to get through passport control and go to the gate beyond the security check point."

Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Ordered kosher and did not get it"

Pros: "Flight was fine! Snack and beverages were good. However, when you buy the ticket for the international flight, what they don’t tell you is the extra €40- FORTY EURO you will spend to check a not big bag. For this reason I would fly with another airline next time."
Cons: "Extra fees for checked bags"

Cons: "I bought economy class ticket! (I have a printout ticket as proof!) When I went to the airport i had a VERY UNPLEASANT surprise. I had a 23kg bag. Bording stuart said that my ticket is ECO LIGHT class and I don't have the right to any baggage. Worst thing of all was that the reason of my trip to Paris was my sister's graduation and half of the baggage was my formal wear and other half were presents for my sister! Your lack of transparency ruined one in lifetime special event- MY SISTER'S GRADUATION. I am very glad that you asked me for my opinion because I am using my free time to demand full refund, even tough the damage is much bigger than the cost of the ticket and it's irreplaceable."

Pros: "short travel time"
Cons: "the landing was way too drastic. The pressure during landing was not gentle and I had a real hard time trying to allow my hearing to come back. The blood pressure in my head felt like my head would explode. My head hurt for a long time. Did not like the flight at all."

Pros: "People friendly"
Cons: "Food was poor, really poor, no options for the children Headphone socket in the seat"

Cons: "Headphones are real cheap and hurt the ears...plus it has two pin socket where you can't use your regular headphones...please change this!"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Engine shut down juast as the safety briefing started but all was good when it started again. A light meal would have been better than yoghurt & biscuits. Staff were very helpful."

Pros: "The plane was comfortable. The headrest was great and the seat pitch and recline were decent. I was able to sleep better with Swiss than with other airlines like Lufthansa or Delta. They are much better overall for sure. The food and staff were excellent! The food quality is very good compared to the other airlines. The cabin crew are always passing around water and chocolates throughout the flight. They were friendly and helpful as well. The pilots were also very good. We had no rough turbulence and their landing skills were amazing."
Cons: "The boarding procedures could be improved. They don't have zones and everybody just line up. Families with small children are not accomodated first."

Cons: "Warm breakfast in coach would be appreciated, but i understand it is just coach."

Pros: "From my previous flight, the crew informed the flight attendants to LA about my condition. This crew checked in with me every few hours to make sure I was comfortable and had enough tissues and tea to make it through the 12 hours."

Cons: "Have to take a bus to the plane for boarding. Terrible cold sandwich wrapped in a partly open loose paper bag wrap. Short flight I realize, but that was bad, especially in business class."

Pros: "Service on board is good to very good. Food tasted fresh and was hot. Wine was good too. Chocolate the best! P{eter Hz"
Cons: "I as a "loyal' flier (app 50 years flew Swiss and SwissAir resp.) am disappointed that I have to pay 29.- for the seat reservation.I think this is outrageous. Also there used to be a "senior discount "; It is gone ! Peter Hz"

Cons: "Cervise was not so good was waiting almost 3 hours on check in"

Pros: "Even though the flight felt like forever, the cabin crew did such a wonderful job at making us all feel comfortable. The food selection was great and the fact that the staff was approachable was also a great plus. Will definitely fly again using Swiss air. Thank you"

Pros: "Entertainment options were pretty good."
Cons: "If people leaned the their seat back it was very uncomfortable and hard to get in and out, eat and or watch the tv."

Pros: "Its on time"
Cons: "They trick u, from one way the take ur carry on when u come back they say u have to pay for it. The person that were giving me boarding pass she was very mean she asked a guy the guy was tottaly stupid he was acting like he is the owner of swiss airline"

Pros: "The crew was pleasant."
Cons: "The Swissair website did not have my information available. Stood next to Passport Control for an hour (!) for a glitch they couldn't resolve before boarding. Flight was delayed 90 minutes. Worse quality beef on a flight ever, and that's hard to do. In my 1.5 million miles flown, these were the least comfortable, cramped seats I have ever experienced. I am only 5'7", 150lbs, but for the first time ever could not reach my belongings in the under-the-seat space in front of me. Seriously, it was that cramped."

Pros: "This was my first time flying on Swiss Air. Beautiful aircraft and a very friendly crew. Food was good and our flight was on time. Lots of options for in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "The boarding process was not ideal. This was our first time in the Zurich airport and we were not aware of the passport check at the gate. There were no signs and several passengers tried to board without the stamp only to be sent to the passport check line. Very frustrating. Also, there was no organization so everyone just rushed forward when boarding was called. They should consider boarding by rows to make it a more orderly process. Finally, there was no leg room at all. I realize airlines are trying to squeeze every passenger in that they can, but this was ridiculous. I'm 5'11" and my knees were pinned against the seat in front of me."

Cons: "see above"

Pros: "Fantastic flight attendants, good food. I felt safe throughout the whole travel."

Cons: "The crew at the check-in was rude, confused, and ignorant, and flight attendants were forgetful and ignorant."

Cons: "Should be clear whether meals contain nuts."

Pros: "I like that this plane had more leg room then other airlines."

Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Mobile app wasnt working for me"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The food was terrible, boarding was chaotic, only ten movies to choose from."

Pros: "Lots of snack service and real dinner's! So much yummm"
Cons: "Boarding was kinda weird and confusing."

"Cabin crew in business class seem so rushed. Hurry up and serve food, hurry up and clear trays, hurry up and get things done. It felt frantic but overall it was okay."

Pros: "Efficient flight, crew professional"
Cons: "Food. Very bad. Cold sack meals and basically just the same twice. Not good fir a 11 hr flight."

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "Seats..."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nicer personal at check in ,nicer crew,better food."

Pros: "The aircraft is a marvel."
Cons: "The food is a bummer. No coffee, no tea, no beverages. What's the point? How eating a stew is different from eating a small sandwich? What's the reason? Nobody care to explain..."

Cons: "everything...terrible airline"

Pros: "crew"
Cons: "delayed flight management"

Pros: "yes"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Seats were confortable, new plane, the crew was attentive, food was great."
Cons: "Need to update the movie library, the category with the new movies is probably a year or morw old."

Pros: "So far nothing. Plane from Ukraine was delayed by 2 hours and we missed our connecting flight to Washington DC. Now we have to spend a night in Istanbul and missing the event that we had to attend on Feb 26!"
Cons: "Would be better if flight waited just 15 min to let passengers from delayed flight to get on board"

Pros: "Liked that in this day's of cost cutting by most airlines, Turkish decided to win customers with Quality! Premium liquid soap, cologne and moisturizer in the lavatories, fresh seafood in ordered special meals, friendly service and good entertainment. Thank you! Didn't expect..."

Pros: "I was feeling very bad during flight. Crew made everything possible to make this flight comfortable for me. They took good care of me and were stopping by me, to check how am I feeling during whole flight."
Cons: "This is not about airlines, but about passengers. All airlines should prohibit passengers to use fragrance. This lady who flew next to me, had strong perfume and it felt like she used half of the bottle, cause it was impossible to breath."

Pros: "Everything...the food was delicious, the staff was gracious and always went the extra mile."

Cons: "Flight delayed missed connection lost bag"

Pros: "The bathroom was clean in the beginning of the flight. Speak some English ."

By the end of the flight there was hardly any jews laughed and no Lamons. The plane was not ready to be full Of people."

Pros: "Food excellent,crew are friendly, polite."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The food and the staff are excellent. 90% of the time I can get an exit row seat as I am 6 foot 2. I fly Turkish airlines frequently. This time the plane was full, so I understand that it was not possible."
Cons: "A passenger and his wife were not seated together, so the passenger wanted to stand in the isle and talk to his wife over the top of me for significant portions of the fight. In a full flight keeping passengers out of the isle os key. I know this was a difficult flight for the crew."

Pros: "Sleeping accommodations, storage, crew attentiveness in business class was outstanding. 5he business lounge in Istanbul was the best ever. Great airline."

Pros: "I was very much impressed with the care and attention of people concerned about me boarding my plane on time once I reached the boarding gate."

Cons: "The usual dislikes: economy seats, crying babies, body odor of other passengers."

Pros: "The best trip! Thk"s! Good luck,T.Airlines!"

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "After bus arrived at steps kept on it 20 mins. 2 more buses arrived in this time. Still wait. Then let out all at once. Massive queues to board. Poeple not dressed for this. Poor babies crying Maybe 15 mins waiting in 2am cold on tarmac."

Pros: "They crew were very pleasant and polite. It was one of best flights I have had."
Cons: "They're wasn't anything I didn't like."

Pros: "It was a short flight. Lemonade"

Pros: "The overall experience was good"
Cons: "The food is not so good."

Pros: "Freebies gifts"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Food was dried out and tasteless"

Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"

Pros: "Early arrival by full 30 minutes--great."
Cons: "Crying babies, but not airline's fault."

Pros: "I used the prime lounge in Istanbul and when it was time to go, I was able to practically walk on the plane without any wait. The seats were comfy and didn't have a ton of legroom but it wasn't bad. The staff we're friendly and helpful. The in-flight entertainment had a pretty impressive selection and had one of the best-designed interfaces I've seen so far (and I've ridden a variety of airlines). Last and most important, the food was hands down the BEST I've had on a plane. Turkish is killing it, they're my new go-to airline!"
Cons: "I really can't complain about anything, even if I try! Maybe the touch screen sensitivity on the entertainment console seemed a little off, but that's just nitpicking"

Pros: "Average good service, food"
Cons: "Entertainment. Poor movie choice, headphones not good"

Pros: "Nice little commuter plane from one destination to another. Nothing particular fancy or negative to say other than a good charter plane to get to your layover for the final flight back home."

Cons: "Not having a jet bridge and having to board a bus to get to the plane."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Staff was rude, was so bad cannot even use word customer service to describe it"

Pros: "The sevicewas great! i liked their food. It was very fresh and testy. The tv screen had a lots of great movies. I enjoyed my flight. Thanks"

Pros: "The flight attendants were pleasant and very attentive. Great meals."
Cons: "Had trouble with the seat leaning back on one of glights"

Cons: "Everything was really good"

Pros: "Food was excellent. Service was awesome."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Selection of movies and other entertainment options"
Cons: "The distance between seats is pretty small. It was very uncomfortable 11 hours flight for a 6 foot tall individual. On our flight back I called flight attendant several times, however no one came and each time "call attendant" light was turned off remotely."

Pros: "It's been few years that I took Turkish Airline flight, but the service and crew and the aircraft were top notch. It felt like Virgin Atlantics flight and better. I flew with my 3 yo and the stuff kept spoiling him with goodie bags. On the way there (it was overnight flight) I'll give it 5 out of 5 and on the way back - it was a bit cold on the flight, it might be just me, however. The food also seemed better on the way to Turkey; on the way back I found myself hungry more often and the food was not as good (day flight). Excellent, will definitely fly again, just for the service and the experience!!"
Cons: "On the way back - it was a bit cold on the flight, it might be just me, however. On the way back I found myself hungry more often and the food was not as good (day flight)."

Cons: "Leg space a nighrmare!! Was uncomfortable for all the 13 hrs of the flight. Terrible experience"

Pros: "It was a 12 or 13 hour flight and except for sitting too much we were never uncomfortable. The service level made me think we were back in the 80's. Hot towels, attentive service, tons of food and free drinks. There was actually one meal that we would have eaten even if it wasn't on a plane. They gave out full size blankets and pretty fluffy pillows. (I bring our own anymore, because you never know if you will get one on most airlines, and if you do they're usually useless). Their entertainment system was amazing. We caught up on all the recently released movies that we've wanted to see for FREE! If only Netflix had this quality of movie offerings. They had fresh flowers in the huge bathrooms. It's that type of attention to detail you just really don't see anymore."
Cons: "Can't think of a thing that could actually be changed."

"Ridiculous unnecessary "extra security" checks at the gate before boarding. With mostly everyone vaccinated and everyone tested, requirement to keep the face covering on between taking the bites seemed a little excessive. Seat assignment - flying with my daughter were assigned seats at opposite sides of the plane, when asked for change was told that there were no 2 seats available together which proved to be not true when after boarding was complete."

Pros: "Crew could have been a little more friendly. Seating was great"
Cons: "Had a 3 he delay due to technical issues on the aircraft.. this was the third time it happened in the last four months"

Cons: "The only company that constantly delays flights. Narrow and uncomfortable places in the business class. They waited 4 days for the suitcase! They are not responsible for receiving compensation for the delay in suitcases! Where to write and call?"

Cons: "I was charged $65.00 for checked luggage; my layover was only 50 minuets and had to rush...last person to board."

Cons: "More space on economy for long flights."

Pros: "Crew was good. Flight was delayed because the crew was caught in traffic. Should have a rule in place that all crew are at the airport 2 or 3 hours before the flight is to leave."
Cons: "The flight was good. Landing at the airport expect 2 hours through customs getting into the airport. Since you have to take a bus when you exit the plane."

Pros: "I didn't like that my bag wasn't delivered from Frankfurt to Barselona"
Cons: "Paying more attention to bags transportation between plains"

Cons: "Супер"

Pros: "Crew is phenomenal! Food was good. Comfortable overall"

Cons: "Thanks Lufthansa for amazing service!"

Pros: "Crew! They super attentive"
Cons: "A bit more legroom and seat size."

Pros: "Never seen such a large streaming movie library. Never seen live stream at seat from cameras (3) outside the plane."
Cons: "It was not clear this was a no-checked-baggage flight, seeing as I specifically searched with flights with luggage. I chose Lufthansa's flight counting on the fact that international flights always allow one checked bag. I had to pay on that way here. I"ll have to pay on the way home."

Pros: "The problem was with the booking, cancelled flights- under stable- but nobody willing to make it right. Flights still screwed up"
Cons: "Give some customer service to your paying customers. Don't make a bad situation worse. Practice a can do attitude. Very disappointed in customer service. Not the flight itself."

Cons: "Food need be much better"

Pros: "Leg room, comfortable seats, staff great"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "On board crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Muslim meal does not mean all Muslims eat curry. It’s rediculous that we cant have a decent English breakfast instead you get curry or some form of curry for breakfast, lunch and supper. Your so called Muslim meals are not suitable for kids!! There is no such thing as a Muslim meal either. It’s simply called Halal otherwise then everyone else’s meals should be called Christian or Jewish meals etc. Also I requested help with transfer to my last flight which was horrendous because I’m one adult with 4 kids ages 1 to 11 and my eldest has sever learning disability. I nearly missed my flight because our flight landed late and I was struggling to keep my kids safe and together while running for the next flight. Somone should have been there to help with transfer."

Pros: "Very friendly and professional crew"
Cons: "Outdated entertainment system on the plane"

Cons: "Seats in row 56 are too tight."

Pros: "Everything was dood"
Cons: "No complains"

Pros: "Everything that happened during the flight was fine. The service, the flight itself, and the landing – which was excellent."
Cons: "On the ground, neither the staff nor the signage made it clear exactly where to check in. I was sent to the Lufthansa counter, which didn’t open until 11:30, when I should have gone to the United counter. An hour of my time was wasted, which almost resulted in my missing the one-hour before take-off check-in deadline. The only reason I didn’t miss the deadline was because the flight was late taking off."

Cons: "Unfortunately the flight was delayed for 6 hours so we had hard time at Boryspil to book another flights to Los Angeles. After talking to 4 different people at cashier booths for an hour, we finely got tickets with Austrian lines to our destination city. I wish that Borispol Airport team could be more prepared(provide more customer service personal) to solve the problems such as a flight delay in order to serve better the passengers in stressful situations."

Pros: "Nothing. It was ok at best which is fine on a good day."
Cons: "Flight out was late due to the bus being late picking up the crew. We had to run for our connections. On the way back we were delayed again , leaving 20 minutes to make our connection. Security at Frankfurt was so poor. Of the potential number of lines available, there were only two operating despite the number of passengers, most of whom were late for their connections. It took us over 30 minutes to get through. Luckily the connecting flight was delayed over an hour."

Cons: ":)"

Pros: "Clean aircraft, very friendly crew, good food, overall great trip."

Pros: "The price was fair and updated information on flights were sent to my phone."

Pros: "Everything was good! I didn’t have any problems with that flight!!!"

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "Not go your a day off"
Cons: "Your programmers don't know what they're doing"

Pros: "Firstly, the food was great!"

Pros: "Nice service. Fast boarding. Smooth fly. Many thanks"
Cons: "Didn’t find an option of choice food for my fly KBP-MUC. Maybe it’s my fault."

Cons: "Food was awful. No TV in the seat. And movies wouldn’t play on my lap top because I needed to downgrade the program in order to watch them. Paid $37 for entire flight internet and it didn’t work half of the flight."

Pros: "Fast boarding, friendly crew"

Pros: "Everything!! Flight was great!!"

Pros: "I was upgraded after all the pressure from thehurrricane this was the icing on the cake"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Entertainment system wasn't working. 11 hour flight. Boring. No seat change available. No reading light, as light controlled by entertainment system. Seats in front of toilet cluster lit up every time door was opened. Crew were slow to react. Wasn't a priority. Ruined the excellent first leg of had from Philadelphia to Frankfurt. Do they run inferior planes to South Africa compared to USA?"

Pros: "Ewerything"

Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable."

Cons: "We were late, had to run through the airport just to catch our next flight"

Pros: "Excellent"

Pros: "All great"

Pros: "Service"

Pros: "The everything was excellent, easy. Very comfortable with nice professional staff around! Thank you!"

Pros: "The attention to detail was fantastic. The flight attendants took such good care of everyone without preference or prejudice"

Pros: "All the staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Terrible leg room."

Pros: "as usual flight itself was okay"
Cons: "the flight was delayed by 50 min reason was because the flight crew was stuck in a traffic jam from kiev city centre to airport by 1h. the flight crew stayed overnight in Kiev city centre which is 30-40 min drive away from city centre and had time to own accord to have a walk around the city centre in the morning. So I wonder why the crew cannot travel earlier to airport taking into account potential traffic jams. Knowingly I trvaelled to the airport about 2.5h before departure and made it perfectly on time to the airport, even though working in the morning, whereas the crew couldnt make it. maybe Lufthansa should change their crew hotel policy in particular for towns with notorious traffic jams like Kiev.."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "McDonald's type food. I couldn't eat it at all. TV screen with very slow response, almost impossible to use. Very frustrating on a long flight."

Pros: "I flew round-trip in Business Class from Munich to Kiev and then back to Germany via Frankfort and both flights were on time. The dedicated business class check-in line and advance boarding process was smooth - as were both flights. The cabin crew on both flights were very good and all spoke English well. My chief complaint is with the European Business Class seating model (3 across with center seat empty) - which does not afford much more leg room or seat pitch than in economy class. On the plus side you don't have to get in a fist-fight with anyone over the overhead bin storage problem since there are less people in business class and hence more storage space."
Cons: "The "European business class model" is not that great when you are paying a premium price to ride in Business Class. I think the prior 2 x 2 arrangement on each side with larger (and more comfortable) seats...plus more legroom and seat pitch...is preferable."

Pros: "Everything was pretty good. Except for the seats."
Cons: "On the long haul flight the seats started to hurt after a few hours. The seats on the short haul flight felt more comfortable."

Pros: "Nice plane"
Cons: "Baggage claim was extremely slow the ruturn to dulles"

Pros: "on time departure"
Cons: "seats from Kiev to Munich were terribly uncomfortable. Food is very bad. After what the luftansa pilots i will never fly Lufthansa ever again. Our outgoing flight was a nightmare and destroyed our short vacation"

"Just average"

"Dreamliner was comfortable and entertainment system good"

Pros: "Staff were polite"
Cons: "The seating space is horrendous, I am 5 ft 8 and felt like I was sitting with my knees at my chest, horrible horrible seating"

Cons: "Free wifi"

Pros: "Great atmosphere, crew was excellent!"
Cons: "I’m 6’5”, so legroom can always be a complaint, but this wasn’t too bad. The plane appeared to be fairly old and didn’t have WiFi. Entertainment also was on an older screen which was navigated by using an old in-seat phone."

Pros: "Confort and kindness"
Cons: "It was too cold"

Pros: "15 years ago I told myself not to fly Delta anymore. But these 2 flights Detroit to Amsterdam and back changed my mind. I enjoyed the flight very much and I'm looking forward to the next one."

Pros: "I was sorted on Row 3 and the drapes kept hitting the back of my head."
Cons: "Move the drapes a few more inches back."

Pros: "Newer plane, crew was amazing, seats were adjustable"

Cons: "I congratulate the KLM crew!"

Pros: "Crew was ok."
Cons: "Screens need a serious upgrade, my seat didn’t recline all the way nor could it be restored to an upright position. Not very comfortable and I paid for a seat upgrade."

Pros: "The crew was great but the seat wasn't as comfortable and didn't have much leg room."

Pros: "Comfortable seat, friendly crew. Crew were conscious of recycling which I like a lot as there is so much waste on flight. Anything we can do to reduce waste is very welcome."
Cons: "Food wasn't very appetizing, pasta didn't have much flavor and I don't eat red meat so the other choice wasn't an option for me."

Pros: "Food provided, staff kind"
Cons: "Was several hours delayed and check in took 45 minutes because they somehow lost my reservation."

Pros: "Crew were great, food, entertainment, seat and everything else was great as well."

Pros: "Best airline in the business quick efficient and outstanding service What else can you say"

Pros: "We got to Amsterdam on time"
Cons: "1. Paying for the seats we chose...that will never happen again...I'll fly another airline first. 2. The food was terrible. I have flown KLM for years, this was not what I expected. 3. The plane was very dirty"

Pros: "Everything OK"

Cons: "None of our 4 checked bags arrived with us. This was despite ample connection time (2+ hours) in Amsterdam."

Cons: "old screens and entertainment system leg room to small"

Cons: "So many people on a 747!!"

Pros: "The flight to Gdansk took off and arrived on-time and the staff were professional."
Cons: "The flight to Amsterdam from Gdansk was late and I had to RUN to the connecting gate. 50 minutes is NOT ENOUGH time to go through passport control."

Pros: "I slept pretty much the whole time"

Pros: "We were fed a nice pasta meal and offered drinks twice. They also gave a muffin for desert. The flight attendants were very nice and attentive with cheerful smiles. I wish every airline had service this good!"

Cons: "Boarding was very confusing. There was an area where they were checking people's bags or something near the gate and you didn't know if you needed to stop at it or continue. They didn't collect garbage before landing. Not only did we have to take our bags off the plane, we had to carry our garbage (drink cups/food served) to the front of the plane to throw out."

Pros: "Smooth boarding, clean seats/plane, nice small aircraft (2 rows x 2 seats each), surprisingly spacious (more legroom than expected - and I’m 6’2”)."
Cons: "About 1h30min delay without an explanation. All other planes in the terminal seemed to take off on time without a problem, without exception (aside from this flight, of course)."

Pros: "Sandwich was incredibly tasty (although not much filling)"
Cons: "2 hours on the tarmac delayed with no explanation. Uncomfortable seats, no leg room. Poor management of seating, there was enough empty seats to have groups together but they were split up. Drinks served from a communal bottle in a polystyrene cup."

Cons: "Crowded seating, wake-up for breakfast service two hours before arrival"

Pros: "The crew came to get me from the arrival gate to get to the departure gate since our plane was delayed. It helped to know that the airline was checking to make sure we made the flight."
Cons: "I did not get my luggage in Nairobi. The delayed flight that was the most likely reason it did not get to the connecting flight to Nairobi."

Pros: "Flight was lovely, crew were friendly and very helpful and food was delicious!! We travelled with assistance for mum and it was excellent and we were kept updated all through the flight."

Pros: "The food was excelent"
Cons: "I have to pay to pay a little more confort"

Pros: "Excellent experience with the cabin crew."
Cons: "Seats on the 777 were too narrow. This 777 had a 3-4-3 seating arraignment, it would have been better with a 3-3-3, similar to a 787 configuration. With the current layout, even with an aisle seat, I was sitting in the aisle. And I am not a large person! The flight was full, so use the 787 and two daily non-stops. For a twelve hour flight, the food was only Okay, could have been better and with a better selection. Meal timing was poor."

Pros: "Service provided by the staff"
Cons: "The navigation of the entertainment system is not very friendly"

Pros: "The sandwiches were simple yet just the right touch, on all four flights."

Pros: "Usual professional and friendly service from my airline of choice for most destinations."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Flight crew was pleasant and attentive. Seats were comfortable for economy as well. We were allowed to check in extra baggage for free at check in which really helped since we would be catching a connecting flight in Amsterdam"

Pros: "That we didn't crash"
Cons: "Being delayed and missing my connecting flight. No entertainment onboard (for hours and hours)."

Pros: "Overall, my trip to Cardiff via Amsterdam was smooth and delightful. I've flown a few short trips this summer and I was pleasantly surprised to find KLM still offered complimentary snacks. What a refreshing change!"
Cons: "There was no entertainment which is why I assigned that category only one star. The boarding process in Amsterdam could have been a bit smoother. Announcements were no clear."

Pros: "I fly delta this was run by KLM they weight all bags delta does not they don't take TSA preach Check. Delta does It was a free for all with check in and getting into plane"
Cons: "See above"

Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly, but they only had limited resources to work with."
Cons: "Worst aircraft I have been on in years. No wifi or entertainment, no power outlets, only bad wine/beer for a 3+ hour flight is mediocre at best..."

Pros: "It was a short flight so it was O.K."
Cons: "Boarding was odd. Go to airport early and counters were not open, did on line check in so was able to avoid the self check in at airport. Also self check in luggage seems confusing with no ground crew to help. It didn't affect me but lots of confused passenger."

Cons: "I requested low fat meals. The first one, was OK. But they forgot my request for the second one."

Pros: "Great smooth flight staff was pleasant and the overall experience was fantastic."

Pros: "Unexpected surprise--even on a 1 hour flight at noon, they gave us a sandwich!"

Pros: "Boarding was smooth and hassle free, crew were friendly and helpful, food and drinks were very good, entertainment system is awesome and up to date with latest contents, good flight overall"
Cons: "Cabin noise and air conditioning too cold, didn't sleep well"

Cons: "Everything was perfectly ok"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Yes, the crew were nice and amazing"
Cons: "Serve warm food not cold"

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Staff behavior & regular check on entertainment system as my screen was not working in 9 hr long journey"

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: "the flight wasn't good at all, was expecting a better and comfortable seat, but the it was a smaller flight and the seats weren't adjustable"
Cons: "at this segment you mus put a 350, which will be more cost effective and should be cheaper in nature,"

Cons: "The queue during boarding is very long, they need to add counters"

Pros: "WONDERFUL FLIGHTV"
Cons: "NONE"

Pros: "Yes.seat was just ok but not quiet comfortable"
Cons: "I think Ethiopian is reasonably good.I travelled to Seattle via delhi .from delhi to sea I travelled by Ana the reason was the fare of Ethiopian (Enugu to Seattle,round trip)was much higher and also you spend 37 hours before u reach your destination,it is too long.why can't u fly to usa direct ,then"

Pros: "Crew was friendly. Food somewhat better than prior leg but far from business class standard."
Cons: "Plane fittings coming apart; dirty seats; no personal screens - they use an overhead CRT! Didn’t know such old panes were still being used by Ethiopian. While friendly, crew could be more attentive to travelers needs - eg refills, water etc."

Pros: "It was a very short flight"

Pros: "The ravioli was great, some of the other food was not great. Otherwise, the flight was easy."
Cons: "More entertainment options, the movies and TV shows offered are not varied or very good."

Cons: "Flight was delayed again. No priority boarding for Star Alliance members. Staff was unfriendly."

Cons: "Flight was overly delayed - as a result I missed my connection to Capetown and endured a lot of feeds in cancellation of pre-planned trips. Ground staff in Mumbai and Addis Ababa were awful. Mumbai staff was rude and inconsiderate. Addis Ababa team does not even make eye contact when talking to passengers. I could not wait for this travel to be over. Aircraft was mediocre.. During boarding, they don't seem to care about Priority passengers - despite my status with other Star Alliance carriers. Not sure I will fly by Ethiopian again."

Cons: "Cabin crew quite distracted. Between rows 19-23, orders were totally mixed up People given wrong food or drinks"

Pros: "New plane fantastic cabin"
Cons: "There was a fight but nothibg to do with the flight crew just some passenger with mental issues"

Pros: "It is an African airline so I am doing my best to support it. I am grateful I was allocated to a hotel for my long layover"

Pros: "Plane was spacious and flight crew were nice"
Cons: "The fact that they confirmed that my luggage would make it to my final destination, and now that I arrived in dakar with no luggage it’s no longer there responsability"

Cons: "The crew kept on supplying 3 passengers with beer and wine, who obviously had too much to drink already and were obnoxiously loud and disturbing the flight."

Pros: "Direct flight for a good price and great service"

Cons: "Transfer at Addis Ababa was horrendous - no help from ground staff and the airport was a confusing mess. The landing in cape town was very rough and jumpy."

Pros: "The standarts (equal to african standarts of course)"
Cons: "Long wait with no care for. At least a place to rest. They changed our seats with no reason"

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: "We were told by United that Ethiopian Airlines does not allow more than 2 checked bags per customer, but that is absolutely not the case. We ended up driving to LA and found that Ethiopian accepts as many bags as we will pay for."
Cons: "Everything."

Pros: "Awesome crew"
Cons: "No electrical plugs"

Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything was bad, very upset !"

Pros: "Great Price Excellent dinner in economy for such a short flight (1.45) Quick, friendly service"
Cons: "Entertainment System is a tad bit outdated on this particular aircraft (737-8) but it was a shorthaul flight and their long haul flights have much better option. \ My seat - although in the exit row (with plenty of leg room) was uncomformable"

Pros: "The flight service"
Cons: "The food was good"

Pros: "crew was okay on board."
Cons: "delays, delays and no answers about the schedule from anyone. poor food, poor entertainment. the plane was small, crowded and a disguising smell all over."

Cons: "The food was horrible. My TV didn't work and although I asked for it to be reset several times, the crew kept forgetting. The flight was supposed to be 9 hours, but we left late and it was 11+ hours. I understand things happen, but the crew gave no explanation for the delay or elongated flight. Last, but not least, when we landed in Newark we waited 2 hours for our luggage to come out. We landed at 9:50pm and didn't receive our baggage until 11:50pm. My friend and I were not even the last to get our bags. Overall this was the worst flight experience I've ever had."

Pros: "I did like the overall services. I was comfortable with the crew and was entertained. I enjoyed the night over in the fhoice of loudging with nazra Hotel."
Cons: "I didn't like the quality of food in the hotel panaroma on my return. The hotel needed air refreshner as it wae stuffy and difficult to breath in. The reception was excellent but poor service."

Pros: "Most things were fine"
Cons: "I don't like the 787 dreamlike at all: it is not built for pax like me who are taller than average. I can hardly remember an occasion when any of the cabin crew smiled."

Cons: "Addis Airport is terribly organized and far too small for the volume of people they're pushing through it (which is probably the lead cause of the poor organization)."

Cons: "Very very old aeroplane"

Cons: "My entertainment system didn't work and there was no vegetarian option. I would have registered for the vegetarian option ahead of time, but when I tried to do online check in, it didn't work."
