I liked theAVML food. Taste was alright and quantity was enough. Sometimes during the flight I felt that the smell from toilet was coming to the cabin

Cons: "Overall experience turns exceptional great when crew is friendly, understandable & helpful. My overall experience on this flight from CAI-DXB on Emirates was great because of the wonderful crew, on top was their Supervisor/ Adel A.Hamid El-Hareth. On the contrary my decision after an experience with Emirates on board from DXB-LAX, was never to repeat it due to Crew Supervisor, she was British, she was there on board I guess to teach everybody disciplines with a tone !! Someone exceptional to meet once in life but it may bring you to a decision along with other factors not to fly again with Emirates to LAX. Thanks for your professional follow up Regards, Dr. Karim Ali"
Pros: "The spirit despite the COVID19 scare. Serving on an India bound flight from the Gulf is never easy"
Cons: "We need to promote paper free boarding passes for whoever can afford. Atleast an endeavor."
Cons: "I wish the 777 had slightly wider seats like the A380"
Pros: "All services are simply best."
Cons: "If you can add more Indian food, that will be better."
Cons: "The seats are a little tight and I paid for a bit of a larger seat. Next time I will upgrade for more room."
Pros: "Yes I like the services and then you will have good stuff for goods"
Pros: "Hard to say, it wasn’t a good experience. Flying from Bombay to Toronto was really bad."
Cons: "They broke my baby stroller, they didn’t bag with or handle with care. It was new stroller all damaged from Bombay to toronto flight."
Cons: "Vegan food was served with BUTTER how can this be vegan? NEED MORE Healthy options instead of Pan cakes etc made of Enriched Flour... Upgrades have become.alsmost nil. Emirates is making a huge profit but is not sharing with its passengers... had to wait one whole hour to get our baggage"
Pros: "The entertainment system was excellent and the free WiFi was good. The food was good, it was a bit more than expected as were the numerous beverages. The service was excellent."
Cons: "The free WiFi was limited to a small amount of data or two hours."

The flight was mostly good, but I sat next to a couple of passengers who were semi unpleasant. We sat next to the emergency exit. One man was drunk and when he got up to get something from the overhead compartment, he tripped and fell on me while I was sleeping, waking me up. The other man seemed sick as he was sneezing a lot and clearing his throat and nose often. This made the flight a bit unpleasant unfortunately. Otherwise I’m usually very happy with QA. Thanks

Pros: "All okey except earphones issue .. doesn’t works to be connected"
Pros: "Flight attendand Tiessy - QR943 - 8 Jun 2019 (outbound Singapore to Doha) She serve us (with kid) very well, with plenty of smile and warm helpful gestures."
Cons: "I really hope that kid's menu can be updated/changed in the system at least 24/48hrs before flight, as that was the first time we ride Qatar (we have no idea the menu) So we only order it once during the outbound flight."
Cons: "Food was terrible. Except for the dessert which was good."
Pros: "Crew was amazing and aircraft was clean and seats comfortable!"
Cons: "I would like to have more air fresheners during the flight as there are some people who eat special food and it smells so bad in aircraft"
Pros: "Plane design was nice"
Cons: "Selecting food online was misleading; felt we had to select something then. We learned later that it was just special diets that required online selection."
Pros: "Qatar is impressive. The airbus was incredible."
Cons: "It would be noce for flight attendants to give coughing passengers a mask. 12 hours on a flight next to two sick people."
Pros: "The crew was attentive and polite. The flights were on time, and the entertainment options were good. The Doha airport is quite nice, with many eating and retail options. although everything is very expensive, even by airport standards."
Cons: "My wife and I personally don't mind a selection that leans heavily toward Indian food, but I imagine others will not. The main courses were mediocre and the "sandwich" offered between meals on the 13+ hour flight was cold, soggy and inedible. The seats on our A350 were hard and not very comfortable, and the recline function was difficult to operate. Security at the Doha airport was confusing. We had to go through 3 separate checkpoints for our transfer, each with different rules and procedures. The final check at our departure gate was the worst, with impatient officials giving hurried instructions in heavily-accented English, and scolding if passengers didn't understand. I was sent back through a second time to remove my camera from the bag (and to be scolded by the agent), and was patted down a second time coming back through the x-ray, which had green-lighted me both times. It made me wonder if this was a reaction to the extra scrutiny that Arab passengers receive from our airport security in the USA."
Pros: "Nice,clean, efficient"
Cons: "The movie selection was not the best. There were a lot of choices but not that many newer popular ones"
Cons: "Unfortunately, my baggage was lost on this flight, which will make it very difficult to climb Kilimanjaro!"
Cons: "Wifi shroud work . I got charged for it but couldn't use it ... hope to get a refund"
Pros: "Due to my religious faith I had booked special meals on Turkish Airlines. ( isegnent - Turkey to Washington DC ). Not only did the crew decline having my food reservation but they forced me to have food totally against my faith. Not sure if he airlines is biased against religions"
Cons: "Hon our food reservation Provide food as initially requested Unbiased attitude."
Pros: "All was great."
Cons: "The airline has so many people from far away places waiting too long for their next connections"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Cooler temperatures in the cabin Vegetarian meal options More individual water bottles for passengers Flight attendants answering call light promptly"
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: "That I arrived at my destination alive."
Cons: "Every staff person we had contact with made us feel as though we were not a priority in any way. We were constantly given misinformation. Our flight was two hours out when it was returned to our departure city due to a passenger health issue. It was not properly explained to us and we were in no way compensated for the inconvenience. Once back at our departure city (Miami) we sat there for an hour or more. They chose to feed us during that delay. Due to this we missed our connecting flight in Istanbul to Rome. This also caused us to miss our transportation from Rome to Compania, Italy. We were told by airline staff on the plane that we would be put up in a hotel over night. When we arrived at the terminal we had no idea where we should go or who we should see. Every representative we spoke to told us to go somewhere else. Truth is it felt like no one we spoke to knew what to tell us or really cared at all. One representative told us we were not entitled to overnight accommodations. We insisted we were told we were and it literally took hours on the ground to straighten the problem out and get to a hotel. By then it was so late that we only got a couple hours of sleep and had to be back at the airport for our next flight. The second flight from Istanbul to Naples, Italy was better. I do not think I would use this airline again. My entire party got an overall sense that people were untrained and lacking in any form of customer service. Not the flight attendants but all the people we had to deal with on the ground. My age plus health issues and walking problems made everything more difficult. We were sent al over the massive airlines terminal with all our carry on luggage only to find when we got to where we were going we had been sent to the wrong place. On top of all this each of us had to pay a VISA fee to get out of the terminal and to the hotel. Just a total nightmare. Prior to taking this flight I contacted Turkish Airlines and spoke to a customer service person and explained that I needed to take with me a small portable oxygen concentrator that I would need to use while in Italy. I needed to know the procedure for bringing that equipment on the airline. I was told that although he could not answer that question He would pass it on to his supervisors and I would receive an answer via email prior to my flight. I never received a response and as a result did not have my needed oxygen while abroad."
Cons: "On the registration checking in in Boston Logan Airport they did not tell me that I as an american citizen must have a visa. After arriving to Turkey they refused me to get in and sent me back to the states. I want refund all my expenses on this trip."
Pros: "Crew and in flight meal and refreshment services were great."
Pros: "The crew was good and courteous. The food was pretty good.great entertainment options."
Cons: "Could not access the wifi."
Pros: "In flight entertainment is great! Good selection of movies, nice screens."
Cons: "No vents at seats on Airbus 300, AC was set at high temp so I was frequently way to warm to be comfortable. This is on both our main flight to Istanbul and our short transfer to Athens. Drink service did not start until 2 1/2 hours into flight. You get what you pay for I suppose. Still 10.5 on a hot plane!!! I usually need a jacket. Food was ...awful."

The crew in Business class for me departure and return were very pushy and rude. They would place the food in front of you and majority of the time remove your meal and toss it without asking if you were done. At one point on the return flight one of them crew members completely missed my sister and when I told another crew member who told that person in their language, she got an attitude and didn't offer her some of the other options they had like yogurt. They need to also take into account that not everyone can eat nuts and that shouldn't be on everyone's plate. Also the plane is dirty! I had to thoroughly wipe down every inch of my area and it was just nasty. The reclining seat struggled to fully extend. For the amount of money I paid for business class I expected better.

Egypt air needs to improve its crew; they're not polite.

Cons: "It could have been better if I had taken the flight, and not cancelled it 2 days ago"
Pros: "Loved the available movie collection, as well as the food and the experience overall."
Pros: "Boarding process was very smooth. Chairs were comfortable"
Cons: "Entertainment options in business class were more limited than those of American carriers. Also, food was just okay."
Cons: "How you book for me two tickets and you take the money for same day going and retuning"
Cons: "Food wasn’t that good and there could have been better entertainment options (more movies, TV shows). Internet was terrible."
Cons: "Old plane - entertainment system did not have too many movies. Food was just okay"
Cons: "The food could improve and for overnight flights, it would be nice if they could provide blankets. I took 4 flights 2 of them were delayed ."
Cons: "Take of was 1:30 minutes delayed. Entertainment was so bad and boring. Crew were super rude."

Cabin crew needed to serve more water (fluids in general) on such a long flight.

Crew was great. Flight was quick . BUT boarding was outside, down and up steps w carryon. Upon arrival we were on tarmac for 45 minutes due to no buses for terminal, more than 30 of us missed our connection. Exhausting.

Cons: "The flight was good, however I was not able to check in online due to British airways website issues. The entertainment touch screen is not working properly,needs some maintenance."
Pros: "The seats were great. The crew were very personable and accommodating."
Pros: "I flew with my sister who has disability. Check in was very smooth and the Spanish lady who checked us in at Heathrow airport took our hand luggage which was really nice as we could just take care of our wheelchair."
Cons: "BA should consider to serve complementary coffee and tea on board. Such a little thing, but could make a huge difference."
Cons: "Despite a 5 hour layover for our connection, one of our checked bags was left in London by British Airlines. Other bags made it. Makes no sense."
Cons: "Delays at gate while on plane(2hrs), entertainment system non-functional, AC non functional, seat selection lost."
Pros: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "Layover was too long (6 hours) n the departure board showed the next flight just 1 hour before the next flight"
Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Poor entertainment - no individual TV screen or choice of entertainment. Food was very poor. We were 9 min late due to crew shortages."
Cons: "The cabin was extremely hot for almost the entire flight. I had my pants rolled up to try to stop sweating. I asked for some ice water to help cool down and although promised, it never arrived. I was not able to sleep as a result."
