Airline reviews

Pros: "On time departure and arrival. Hard working crew members."
Cons: "No slippers for long flights."

Cons: "maybe they can offer more snacks on the plain"

Pros: "The seat was comfortable, and food was very nice."
Cons: "Nothing I could think of"

Cons: "Food was just not that great. Too many peppers in everything!"

Pros: "The Crew were professional, friendly and comforting. The A380 Business Class is the best way to fly. Smooth journey, very comfortable reclining beds with enough room to within the bed area to move around with adequate space. The Wine list was excellent with a great choice and variety."
Cons: "Nothing to do with the flight...but Qatar could have offered an airport hotel room to their Bus. Class passengers for the 9 hour delay....we did have the Lounge, but a shower, rest and comfort after another previous 5 hour 30 minutes flight from Athens 11.30am Start to 2.00am start from Doa."

Pros: "The Crew was amazing, the Seat a bit better this Time only 3row of 3 Seat"

Pros: "Attentive crew, good menu"
Cons: "Providing in-ear noise-canceling headphones instead of the typical around ear noise-canceling headphones"

Pros: "Seats are great!"
Cons: "The food options were not that good this time."

Pros: "Service and entertainment."
Cons: "Food."

Pros: "The crew were very friendly"
Cons: "I was made to gate check my hand luggage."

Pros: "Of all the flights and airlines I have used this was definitely the top of my list . The aircraft was clean , the crew were polite, curious, and attentive nothing was too much trouble. The food looked good tasted good and was plentiful. The pyjama were a nice added touch and very comfortable for the long flight. Flying into Cardiff airport was so good for my intended destination. I would certainly recommend them to others and many airlines could learn from their example.Well done and thank you"
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like about this flight"

Pros: "Qatar airlines the service was awesome and the planes very clean"
Cons: "Seating not able to upgrade"

Pros: "Everything?"
Cons: "Nothing?"

Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "It is so far a cut above the American carriers. There’s no way to compare them, because Qatar Airways is so far superior. The seats are far more comfortable and larger, the amount of legroom is far superior, you have much more personal space, and the craft is cleaner. Flight Attendants are fantastic! They provide excellent personal care, and are there for everything. They are supremely polite and courteous, and bring things in mediately. Very often anticipating your needs. This is what flying used to be like on United and American. But those people have completely forgotten what service is. Qatar is a 5 star airline. United and American, to my view, are 2 star at best."

Cons: "Will fly in a bit.still in Qatar airport waiting for my flight"

Cons: "The changed the time of flight had to wait airport for 5 hrs"

Cons: "They claimed they have free WiFi, but this is not true. Passengers has to pay if they want access to WiFi. Uncomfortable sitting and you cannot adjust it to a comfortable level. Crew keeps demanding sit need to be upright."

Cons: "The food options was bad...during my trip asked for certain meal they claim that they are out of it. I also did not like how they check you into room in Doha & Chennai way before boarding time that time could have used for shopping instead of sitting in the room."

Pros: "Service and food"

Cons: "I used Qatar airways 3 times so far. In the last flight, were a connection has 8 hours between 2 flights, they deny me to stay in a hotel. The last 2 flights which have exactly the same schedule, I used the hotel in that 8 hours between the 2 flights. I asked why, they told me that my ticket is not eligible to the hotel, although, I bought the last two times from Kayak, with almost same price. My first flight with Qatar Airways was on July 2017. My second flight with Qatar Airways was on August 2017. My third flight with Qatar Airways was on Jan 208."

Cons: "Same no in flight wifi"

Pros: "Foods, crew are accomodating and all sevice facility are very good"
Cons: "Just update the movies regularly"

Pros: "the attention in general for me was excellent."
Cons: "may be the fact that it was the same kind of food in both of the flights I had, is not that it was bad just in my opinion they should have more option, especially for south american people, thank you"

Cons: "Great service. Courteous staff. Professional and well groomed crew unlike some US carriers. Decent beverage and food offerings in biz. Badly outdated IFE system."

Pros: "Everything except food"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "I really enjoyed the flight, which was almost 15 hours long. I give an overall 4 star review for this flight. The boarding process was pretty organized (without including the ignorant passengers who can't read their zone numbers, haha) because they called us up group by group, in a speedy process. Even inside, the cabin crew welcomed us aboard and showed us where our seats are. This leads me to my 5-star rating of the service. Very warm, friendly, and generally helpful cabin crew Qatar Airways has. They fulfilled all my needs even if they had to go out of their way. As for entertainment, I was very surprised at how many great movies they have! Especially the new ones! I would not be bored again with this selection. Food was okay to be honest. It was a hot meal that satisfied my hunger and tasted good, but maybe it's just me and airplane food. Doesn't taste right for me. And to be honest, I was cramped. Not even me but many other passengers felt like the seats were too small. Overall, Good experience!"

Cons: "Extra hour that takes to do this flight because we have to fly around Saudi Arabia....."

Pros: "Great crew members. Very friendly and helpful. Qatar Airways is great about providing pillows, blankets, ear plugs and eye masks. Really good food as well."
Cons: "The seats were very close together. With the tray folded out it was right against me without being extended. Leg room was cramped."

Cons: "Checkin at Jakarta needs fine tuning. Checkin in started 30mins later than what the QR rep informed me an hr previously. QR lounge needs upgrading."

Pros: "Comfort of the seat/bed"

Pros: "The airline stewardesses were Fabulous! Especially one from Doha to Cape Town. Food was good and more than enough to eat. I was impressed by the scheduled meals and drink offers , very important for a dietetic"
Cons: "No leg room, can't stretch your legs properly so my bad knee was in pain"

Cons: "I did not like the fact that on now 3 flights I have lost miles, as on every flight I have tried to sign on as a member or frequent flyer and on all flights, there were no entry forms. This is also after my attempt to complete one on line, which I have had no response to."

Pros: "The crew was friendly and patient. The flight departed on time."
Cons: "The plane was small and cramped. The food was mediocre and could have been more creative"

Pros: "The flight went fairly smooth, the staff were courteous and the food was as good as can be expected of airline food. There were several courses and options, which is always appreciated."

Pros: "All the services were excellent. From the checking-in to the boarding. The flight crew could not have been more helpful, courteous and polite. Food was great on board."

Pros: "Crew are great and entertainment options are good."

Cons: "Lack of movies"

Pros: "The crew was extremely professional. The stewards were beautiful and young not like on US flights.."
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable, My tail bone was hurting badly and sitting on pillows did not provide any relief. The food was terriable. Not much choice."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "One of bags was missing and I came to know this only after waiting until the last bag. The staff knew that my bag did not make it out of Doha. It would have been nice if I was informed as soon as I landed so I did not have to wait for an hour unnecessarily. And the paperwork to report the missing baggage was totally Chaotic. Whoever barged to the counter and was aggressive got priority and taking down the details and giving us a receipt. This is probably my 5 or 6 flight in Qatar and it seems that you guys are slipping up as Emirates had done. Hope you don't."

Pros: "We departed late and therefore missed the connection. The staff met me and made arrangement for hotel accommodations till the next available flight. No haggling was necessary. staff on ground and in air sought to be helpful. Price of ticket was very affordable. Seating comfortable."
Cons: "Comparing to Emirates airlines...Movie choices were very limited. Only 2 new movies available. Food was poor at best. This was my second trip with Qatar. First trip...my iPad was stolen from baggage. Airline have had no solution. I prefer Emirates."

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Catering and seating. They ran out of food and drinks"

Pros: "Customer service was super! Entertainment package was nice, many current movies worth watching ."
Cons: "No Wifi on flight !!"

Pros: "It was a good flight. I'd give it 4 of 5 stars."

Cons: "The seat didn't have any inflight entertainment"

Pros: "Service was very good"

Pros: "Very spacious, good food & service"

Pros: "The flight service was great. We had a slight delay on the way back to Doha from Heathrow but they made up for it by getting us through security faster so I didn't miss my flight to Tokyo. Overall the timing was excellent and I got home without having to fork out any extra money."
Cons: "Song selections"

Cons: "Steep decline in food quality"

Pros: "I didn’t get the chance to experience the seats because I didn’t get to be on the flight due to a huge mistake of a Lufthansa employee"
Cons: "Hire better competent people!"

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

Pros: "The food was fine to abv"
Cons: "The wait time was extremely long and would be even longer when going back to Boston"

Pros: "Flew Business Class with miles program (United). Lufthansa always gives good basic flight experience. Watched two movies so saved some time at home. Lounges are getting better every time I fly. They are especially good, understandably, in Frankfurt."
Cons: "Nada. They get the job done."

Pros: "The large amount of entertainment to choose from was very nice."
Cons: "Timeliness and comfort in seats could be better."

Cons: "The plane is still on the run way waiting for a gate & I’ll miss my shuttle bus to my next stop. Darn..."

Pros: "Perfect in everything"
Cons: "All good"

Pros: "All was fine on the flight."
Cons: "The woman at the "Groups" check in area on 4/20 Saturday morning had the personality of a cactus needle. She was condescending and sent us on a wild goose chase to pay for our bags. Why didn't she just send us to that area in the first place to take care of the check in process at the same place?"

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: "Entertainment didn’t work"

Cons: "These scheduled flights on Jan 1, 2019 were cancelled by Lufthansa and we were not informed of these scheduled cancellations either by email or SMS. We waited for several hours at the airport before being informed by an airport staff. We missed one day of work and lot of inconvenience with transportation and accommodation in Bengaluru."

Pros: "Comfy flight and early arrival."
Cons: "Had to run to catch the connecting flight"

Pros: "Fly is Ok"
Cons: "Fly is Ok"

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: "The food was tasty but the service was excellent. Lovely staff."
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable, particularly for business class. And there is no in flight entertainment. The journey can drag if you’re not prepared with your own. Boarding was slightly chaotic but expected in Istanbul airport."

Pros: "Timeliness of fligyts"

Cons: "Boarding was a free for all. My seat was near the front of the plane but the crew directed me to enter at the back of the plane. There were people entering from both the front and the back, meaning people were stuck trying to get past each other in the tight aisle. It was difficult to find space in the overhead compartments for carryon luggage due to people bringing too much stuff - the crew should have stepped in and helped. The food was a bad chicken sandwich with condiments that I could not eat."

Cons: "Seems like they want to nickel and dime you for everything now..."

Pros: "Flight left on time and as I was traveling alone I was upgraded to upper economy, which is a fantastic experience. Very smooth and stable flight. One of the best landing I even experienced. The flight inbound and outbound were on time both ways. Congratulations Lufthansa: I will definitely use this airline again."

Pros: "Excellent service. They really brought around the drinks and food and seemed to be there when you were looking for more."

Pros: "Crew was hospitable and flight was clean."

Pros: "Just fine."
Cons: "My eyes got so dry that I couldn't see very well for a few hours after landing, everything was hazy and glowing, like I had a film on my eyes. I've been on way longer flights before and I've never experienced this, it was scary."

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

Pros: "They boarded back of aircraft first. They gave wine on demand. They were smiling and helpful and greeted us on entry and exit. The little things matter!"
Cons: "It was difficult to fall asleep in the seats. Uncomfortable."

Pros: "flights were on time"
Cons: "food quality can be improved"

Pros: "Professional crew. Excellent service. Punctual. Efficient boarding in Munich. Good communication from pilot"

Cons: "My return travel was on lufthansa but due t delays in departing I missed my flight to the US. We were treated very poorly and slowly by service center representatives. The flight we missed was still at the gate but the door had closed. We were told the flight was oversold so it benefited the airline that we missed it. It’s muxh cheaper to put us in a horrible hotel with disgusting food and fly us out the next day, then pay people to choose a new flight. I had two small children at home and Diebel to this incompetence missed my 4 year olds birthday. He was devastated all thanks to your airline."

Pros: "The staff was kind and friendly (which always is the case with Lufthansa!). I felt like more than just a passenger but as a cared for customer."
Cons: "The premium economy seats, while more spacious, were not much more comfortable. They reclined to the point that it was awkward when using the leg rest. Would be better if the leg rest could raise a little higher.."

Cons: "I was very irritated and angry about the checking in procedure at Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris. Lufthansa representatives were extremely slow and inefficient. I already performed the check in online. What is the purpose of online check in if I had to wait in line almost an hour only to drop off my luggage???!! Very unpleasant experience."

Pros: "Firstly, the food was great!"

Pros: "Friendliness of staff Efficiency"
Cons: "Overall a very good service and no complaints but if In House entertainment was provided it would enhance the experience."

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: "During this flight, the attendants were suprisingly kind."
Cons: "Entertainment was just too poor(movie selection was just counted numbers.) the seat comfort was one of the ugliest, I think. even though they prepared many of premium seats, still once you compare with other airlines, it is far below than the average I think."

Pros: "We had a problem in Germany. My daughter left her passport on the plane. Everyone was very helpful and found it. And got it back to us."

Pros: "The plane was clean, the staff for the most part friendly"
Cons: "Had to be shuttled out to the plane on the tarmac"

Cons: "Being put in a distanced place for boarding"

Cons: "A man sitting behind me probably took off his shoes and it was just terrible to smell his stinky feet..."

Pros: "Crew, food, service location of my seat."

Pros: "Flight was late landing then delayed on the ground at EWR"

Cons: "Meals served in the 2nd flight wasnt up to the mark."

Pros: "General quality and competence."
Cons: "I find the seats in Economy rather uncomfortable (Premium Economy is way better, but too expensive for me)."

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

Pros: "Over the length of the 9.5 hour flight, my time in the Economy class was that the crew were professional, courteous and especially helpful. There is a magnitude of difference between the attitude and professionalism of this airline over any American airline I have flown. In the future, Lufthansa will be my first consideration."

Cons: "It was delayed by 9.5 hours!!!!!"

Pros: "the trip from osaka to frankfurt was excellente. the people of the crew woho serve us, were excellent. Thanks for karen kern and her colleague First time i drunk a nice wine."
Cons: "the trip from frankfurt to sao paulo wasn't so excellent. there was a difference. Unfortunatelly, lower."

Cons: "I thought lying while smiling went out of the airline business 20 years ago. Lufthansa rebooked my husband and I - telling us all would be well. That was the start of one of the worst travel days ever - running through airports; and culminating the end of an anniversary trip with my husband and I having to sit separately in center seats for 8.5 hours. Perhaps spoiled food or the lack of the pre-ordered gluten-free meals left one of us ill for the week since. Days of headaches with Lufthansa leading up to these two flights - online, on the phone and in person. We ended up on a full United flight with some of the most humorless in-flight staff ever."

Pros: "A short flight without complications"
Cons: "Because of the short time there was no service"

Pros: "Economy class was amazing"

Pros: "We arrived at our destination on time"

Cons: "No suggestions."

Pros: "Due to business I travel allot so I deal with allot of airlines. This is by far the best airlines I have used. Excellent crew and airport staff.

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Very nice airplane and pleasant crew"

Pros: "A flight was delayed due to weather conditions and we had to sit in the plane for almost an hour, BUT information sharing from the Capitan was sufficient and on-time. Very good job from pilots. Leg room in economy - I was positively surprised, very decent leg room! Thank you for providing it."
Cons: "I flew economy and all was good and appropriate to the level."

Cons: "Keep the temperature at a more reasonable level. Blankets + two layers of clothing was definitely not enough."

Cons: "Time"

Pros: "Food was great, enjoyed watching videos, staff very profession and friendly."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed and prolonged My Baggage was not transferred and was not available when I arrived in Dulles."

Pros: "The crew and the timing were ok"

Cons: "Too hot inside the aircraft"

Pros: "Nice staff and no delay"
Cons: "Instead of crisps maybe a bit of cheese or crackers"

Pros: "The crew are amazing! Attentive and friendly."
Cons: "The seats could have been bigger."

Pros: "Everything was good except for the entertainment consul for one of our seats."
Cons: "One of our entertainment consuls had to be rebooted 4 times and still didn’t work. We gave up asking."

Pros: "Very personable staff. Food acceptable for airline fare. Ticket price was outstanding."
Cons: "Paid for extra legroom, but very narrow seats not comfortable. Very difficult to sleep. Old plane--could not hear movies and unclear screen. Music sounded OK and choice was good."

Pros: "short, sweet and to the point. 1+ hour flight is usually an easy hop."

Pros: "Friendly hostesses"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours"

Pros: "Landing"
Cons: "I’ve traveled a lot internationally and this was the WORST flight I’ve ever had to endure. I felt like I was being tortured and didn’t sleep at all and so slept when getting into Amsterdam rather than being able to explore the city. I was out $200 for the Airbnb (could’ve stayed in the airport cheaper) and $200 for a dinner cruise I slept through. NEVER AGAIN"

Pros: "Seat 39A did not recline. The gentleman next to me spread his arms out a bit as he typed on his computer the entire way. So I did not get ANY sleep. Plus he got up at least four times."
Cons: "Except for the man next to me - great!"

Cons: "Very slow service at checkin, was not even available when I arrived at the airport"

Cons: "Services was pretty weird .. Perse or crew Leader was ok But the assistent Young one was Really bad.. aptitud and not friendly at all."

Pros: "I slept pretty much the whole time"

Cons: "Flight was cancelled."

Cons: "The movie selection did not seem extremely varied."

Pros: "The leg room, was surprisingly roomy"
Cons: "The food and that there was no entertainment."

Cons: "Our two hour connection in Paris became 30 minutes because Air France was late in leaving Washington. So our luggage didn't make to to KLM to Amsterdam. My poor rating was because the luggage handling was really poor. Lots of flights from Paris to Amsterdam (almost hourly), but my bag showed up 12 hours later. My wife's bag took 36 hours. And yes, we checked in together. There were lots of confusing messages"

Pros: "Service, technology"
Cons: "Could not print by boarding card and was not allowed to board in Amsterdam"

Pros: "The time keeping was very good. We left on time and arrived early on both occasion. Good organisation. Excellent service."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Nothing"

Cons: "The 767 is configured oddly and th business class seats are so narrow it feel like you are sleeping in a coffin"

Pros: "Lovely staff, good food, great movies."

Cons: "Crowded seating, 20-year old video system, headphones that did not match the two-jack system, lackluster service in flight. Generally my experience with KLM has been good, but this was well below average."

Pros: "Very friendly crew"

Cons: "Amesterdam airport employee was really rude"

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: "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: "The flight attendants could not do enough for you."
Cons: "Business class was pretty empty but again I was not allowed to change my seat selection online. Pathetic check-in."

Pros: "Cabin Crew was awesome."
Cons: "Entertainment System was not working and no Non-veg food option in flight."

Pros: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "On time."
Cons: "No negative"

Cons: "One of the senior stewardesses we're very rude. Whether it's her personal opinion or KLM's policy, it's unreasonable to think that a 3 years old child could or should hold her pipi over 20 minutes, while they slowly and inefficiently trying to give out food. Several parents were there with the request to let us through to the toilet with small children and she smiled in our face and said "no, we will finish first and than you can go". She might be not fit for the job anymore, but KLM can't afford this kind of treatment."

Cons: "KLM had bumped us to a later flight for no reason and again we had to call with a long wait to get our original connection restored, However, we did not get boarding passes during checking in Europe and thus had to go outside security in Detroit to the main check-in gate and wait 30 minutes to get the error resolved. Then it was back thorough security and a rush to the gate to get there in time to board. Lost our original seat assignment and wound up in the last row at the tail of the plane. Extremely poor coordination between KLM and Delta who operated the flight."

Pros: "The cabin crew were fantastic and funny"
Cons: "Tiny seats"

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."

Pros: "Friendliest economy class service I've ever encountered."

Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Delay"

Pros: "leg room economy compared to KLM"
Cons: "full flight, no upgrade possible"

Cons: "More choice of meal. Getting special.assistance.upon arrival at.Istanbul airport first outbound flight was hard. I nearly fainted as I had to stand for so long."

Cons: "The breakfast scone was disgusting but dinner was great!"

Pros: "The crew was very attentive and willing to assist with everything."

Cons: "T5 needs many more drinking fountains."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Really old plane with uncomfortable seats and really bad in flight options. The air conditioning was also broken so the entire flight felt hot and muggy, this is on a 12 hour flight!!"

Pros: "Smooth flight without event. On time landing. Efficient deplaning."
Cons: "Newer plane. Seats , entertainment, cabin crew."

Cons: "The temperature in the cabin was unbearably hot"

Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Not applicable."

Cons: "Only one round of drinks served?"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and professional, food was quite good as far as airlines go, chicken korma not bad at all."
Cons: "The premium economy seats are hard, and you really notice that on a long-haul flight. It was at least spacious and offered a reasonable degree of recline. WiFi was expensive and unreliable."

Cons: "Boarding at Gatwick was a bit slow and disorganized."

Cons: "Baggage delayed on arrival"

Pros: "Polite crew"

Cons: "No USB power ports by the seats."

Pros: "Wonderful crew and flight. A380 smooth and quiet"

Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Inflight meals and entertainment seat pitch"

Cons: "Our flight from Denver to London was canceled at the last minute last night. The information from your email and the number given from you notifying me of the cancellation only gave British Airway to contact for redress. It took over an hour on the phone to get another flight which was 2 days later with now 2 days less of our vacation. Not to mention the loss of 2 hotel room payments. Kayak was of no help in this matter. Plus our flight reservation prohibited us from getting our flight on another flight the next day. If I had known that I never would have used Kayak. I am extremely unhappy with how this was handled. I expect to be reimbursed for our lost Hotel room costs and the costs associated with lost tours from you. Please contact me with how you will go about doing this."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No self service kiosks to check in. Rude staff. Terrible flight experience."

Pros: "Excellent service from all British Airways crew that we dealt with"
Cons: "Lost luggage. One of our suitcases never arrived at JFK. A lot of food was served which was nice but quality of food was mediocre. Very high salt content. Not many options for diet restricted travelers."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I can't remember a more cramped and uncomfortable flight. Missed connection on way Paris and we arrived 6 hours late. It took British airways 3 days to get our lost luggage to us. Delayed on way back, adding 4 hours to our trip because the first plane was not "serviceable" and they had to get a replacement. They arbitrarily decide who has to much carry on luggage and force you to check it last minute at the gate while letting others with same size bags take them on the plane. Certainly no better than bargain flights and possibly worse. Why pay extra? No more British Airways for us."

Pros: "The Crew were great"
Cons: "Boarding could have been more efficient"

Pros: "Nothing to special comparing with other first class"
Cons: "Boarding process was very late, they made us wait in the cold for 10 min before letting us in the plane. The staff was professional but not too friendly and the place is old. When I purchased the ticket it said it was a airbus A380"

Pros: "Staff are friendly, accomodating for an unaccompanied child with me, upgraded me and helped to support the extra baggage needs"
Cons: "Old, dirty planes with bad enterainment systems and mediocre food and drink offerings. With the price of a ticket more than Emirates, KLM and other airlines, always really suprised the overall crappy hardware, infrastructure on planes etc. When can we get a decent plane to fly the long haul flights. And an actual entertainment system like to competitors?"

Pros: "There was one female stewardess who was extremely kind and helpful"
Cons: "They ran out of food for the back of the plane Bathrooms were FILTHY! Flight delayed by an hour Lost our luggage and then gave us the run-around about how we can get it back, when we would receive it, and did not compensate us for anything; ruined our weekend plans Extremely rude steward who, when we were upset about not having food behaved as if we should be grateful just to be in his company This flight was the exact opposite of what I have come to expect and appreciate about BA... Not sure I would ever endorse flying with them again..."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "There was an abusive passenger sitting behind me that kicked my chair the entire flight. They were angry that they didn't have more space and that I wanted to have my seat back. I offered to put it up during meal times to make sure they had enough space but that wasn't good enough. The crew knew what was happening and tried to get the other passenger to stop but the passenger persisted. The crew refused to upgrade me even though I had paid for an aisle seat and there were no other aisle seats available for me to move to. I find this service unacceptable. I probably won't be willing to fly BA again as they obviously care more about money than ensuring their customers are comfortable."

Pros: "Entertainment options and wine made the 10+ hour flight pass fairly quickly!"
Cons: "The middle arm rest would not go up and made it incredibly uncomfortable for a 10-hour flight."

Cons: "No wifi on a +11hr flight TV Screen looks horrible. Too old. Didn’t even watch any movie on it. got downgraded from First Class to Business Class because the airline oversold first classs. Shouldn’t happen."

Pros: "Good leg room, decent film selection, more than enough attention from flight crew."
Cons: "It's airplane food so my expectations are not very high, but the vegetarian option that I had seemed especially bland."

Pros: "comfort of seats, staff"

Pros: "The food was better than expected and the crew did everything they could to keep us comfortable"
Cons: "That plane was so gross. The upholstery was stained and frayed. It was also insanely small. Holy cow!"

Pros: "Pleasant helpful staff, comfortable, clean seat, good food."
Cons: "Having to pay TWICE for extra item of luggage!! Some delay with boarding"

Cons: "Having to pay for a cup of tea!"

Pros: "What a different experience in relation to last week!"

Pros: "Wonderful customer service and hot meal was a lovely treat!!"

Cons: "No direct communication. Really bad"

Pros: "Great service and good food."
Cons: "About 100 people didn't make the flight!"

Pros: "Airbus 380 - smooth and quiet"
Cons: "nothing it was good"

Pros: "Clean cabin and crew's friendly attitudes."
Cons: "Finally got it 20 mins before touch down but the cheese was still freezing cold! That's amazing! The crew would rather enjoying coffee and talking instead noticing the call for help. Coffee served with a loosing lid and ended up spilling out."

Pros: "Good inflight entertainment system"
Cons: "Somehow my seat wouldn't recline at all. Not great for an overnight trip costing close to $3000"

Pros: "Comfortable seats and good service"
Cons: "No USB port"

Pros: "I have nothing more to say about British Airways, What I have to say about British Airways is Excellent.In terms of customs services they are number one in the whole world."

Pros: "No complimentary food or drink London to Paris"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "no complimentary water and coffee and more."

Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Noise level when people were trying to sleep; seats not too comfortable"

Pros: "Extra leg room in premium economy"
Cons: "Service poor relative to global peers, food mediocre, entertainment system totally outdated"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Was not able to check in through to Cape Town, only JNB. When arrived in JNB, British Airways flight was not clearly identifiable from ticket (no flight number). Then the flight was delayed, and plane was old! Horrible experience"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The whole trip."

Pros: "That BAA have WiFi on the plan and the flight back did not even have USB charger . In new York at at the BAA terminal they only have 30 min worth of wifi"
Cons: "The service . In general it can be better"

Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Good"

Pros: "The crew was nice. Service was excellent."
Cons: "The upholstery can be improved."

Cons: "It was over booked the flight 2 times on the way Seychelles........ It was tired journey definitely..."

Pros: "Nice aircraft and comfortable seating in economy with a good selection of music and movies on the seat back entertainment. Business class was mostly empty and looked very nice and roomy. They should upgrade their frequent flyers the way other airlines do to fill those empty seats and generate the good PR that results. The food was good in my opinion, and the Ethiopian coffee is great. Affordably priced tickets was the selling point for choosing them. They are a young airline and while they go through the motions of being a modern service-oriented airline, but alas for the most part they aren't there yet."
Cons: "We've flown a few Ethiopian Air flights now and while the flight attendants are nice, they aren't always on top of things and paying attention to the needs of the passengers. Not as helpful or attentive as we're used to. Boarding is chaotic and the overnight transfer at Addis Ababa is a total mess. If you get to leave through the airport in the early morning things are relatively painless, but what a nightmare of pushing and shoving chaos when it's busy. The hotels they put you up in are mediocre at best. Last week we enjoyed a long wait for the bus ride to the hotel, cold food when we arrived, and a nice hard bed to "sleep" in. We probably won't fly Ethiopian Air if we have to overnight in Addis Ababa again. I'm willing to pay up to fly another airline and skip the overnight as it's just not worth the hassle."

Cons: "The chicken was undercooked."

Pros: "No problems"

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

Pros: "The seats were very comfortable and generally this flight is comfy"

Pros: "The crew were very welcoming, helpful and charm, makes you feel easy"
Cons: "General interior cleanliness"

Pros: "I love the entertainment and frequent availability of food and drinks"
Cons: "The seats are too squished together. I was stuck next to a fat woman who kept shutting off my movies by hitting the controls of my arm chair"

Pros: "The food was good, seats were quite comfortable and the crew was awesome"
Cons: "The entertainment was not that great"

Cons: "There was a disruption with the audio system."

Pros: "The crew was okay, though a little bit occupied and thus ignoring some of the customers' requests. The seats are comfortable and spacious with enough leg room"
Cons: "The food could have been better. Honestly much better"

Pros: "The crew was great. Extremely accommodating for families."

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."

Pros: "Staff was pretty helpful and you could mostly get what you needed if you didn't mind going back to the galley for it."
Cons: "Boarding was literally unsafe (too many people going down an escalator into too small an area). Terribly bland food. Buttons on the seat rest too easy to push accidentally (for things like the light or to call a flight attendant)."

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

Pros: "The staff was very kind."
Cons: "Flight was uncomfortable. They forgot my food and drink. The attendant sneezed on me without covering her mouth, my tv didn't work. The plane was dirty. I asked to be moved up to any of the 10 open seats in business and they said they can't. It was actually one of the worst flights I've ever taken anywhere in my life."

Pros: "Was on time"

Cons: "No entertainment available. Rude flight attendants."

Pros: "Check-in staff at desk ,claiming not working for Ethiopian Airlines only providing service to Ethiopian Airlines therefore unable to in depth questions."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Airport facilities at Adis Ababa"

Pros: "The quality of the planes"
Cons: "The food"

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"
Cons: "I had a long layover in Addis and the hotel I was allocated to could improve its service. I was expected to be served breakfast in the morning. My flight was at 820 am There could be some improvement on food"

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."

Cons: "Waiting room at Gate 1B"

Cons: "My phone was stolen on airport premises They didn't have my requested meal for one of my flights The boeng 737 is tiny. No leg room and was terribly hot."

Pros: "Prior seating options, friendly air hostess, and vegan meal options."
Cons: "Flight from U.S had frequent meals, flight to Ghana had a sandwich and meal, and the time in between the two was extremely long, after been up extremely early to depart. It would also be awesome to have Ethiopian meal option, like injere"

Cons: "Delayed without explanation or heads up"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. I have written to customerrelations@ethiopianairlines.com"

Pros: "Check-in and Boarding took forever. Cabin was very warm and passengers around me were extremely loud, practicallly yelling. Considering the flight was 3 AM, this was not appreciated."

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: "The food was not appetizing and the flight ran out of sodas"

Pros: "The Ethiopians have got the transit sorted in Addis. I had a tight turnaround time of about an hour and 15 minutes. From alighting to boarding and takeoff was about 1 hour. Very impressed that my luggage made it as well."

Pros: "friendly staff"
Cons: "Poor entertainment system"

Cons: "Nothing"

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

Pros: "Comfortable. Crew excellent. On time. Efficient on boarding and landing - good information throughout"
Cons: "Addis Ababa airport very crowded with no seat available for five hour stopover. Food outlets limited"

Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "Boarding at the gate was atrocious. Very slow and not organized and we left late because of that. The crew was very nice. Food was good. Entertainment was ok. Movies were old and could have been up to date not enough bathrooms per amount of people on board (relative to other aircrafts)."

Cons: "The food was almost edible, but i stil ate it because i was hungry. The fish was not even real, just some sort of fishmeal,"
