Cons: "Trip delay"
Pros: "This flight was great. It was a short flight but food was still served. Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Boarding was late and no announcement came from anyone."
Cons: "Had a layover in Toronto. From Toronto we flew to Istanbul and then Venice. While waiting in line to board in Toronto, I was told my carry-on luggage was too big and needed to be put under. I asked MULTIPLE times where my luggage would be- either Istanbul or Venice (final destination) and EVERY time I asked, I was told my luggage would be waiting for me in Venice. Once we arrived in Istanbul I asked AGAIN if my carry-on luggage was here or if it would be in Venice and I was told it would be in Venice. Once we arrived in Venice, my luggage was nowhere to be found. The lost luggage crew (and 90% of the people in Venice) were completely rude and acted like we were a huge inconvenience for them. (I've heard that many Europeans cannot stand Americans, but we were not being rude or obnoxious at all to anyone- we just wanted a quiet, romantic vacation.) So safe to say that it was an extremely rough start. We were in Venice for the Glass Art Society Conference in Murano and due to my luggage being lost, had missed the first day and a half, therefore wasting hundreds of dollars. Luckily my boyfriend's phone worked in order to spend our first two days of vacation (not to mention the amount of money spent on international calling costs) tracking down my luggage, but again dealt with completely rude people who barely helped us with any answers and even hung up on us multiple times (and I'd like to add that despite my frustration, I made sure that I was not speaking rudely one bit). The best answers we received were from the people at the Istanbul airport who told us that Venice received my luggage hours before I even called Istanbul- which I do not understand why the Venice airport did not tell me this because I spent all day speaking with them. Once I called back the Venice airport to confirm what the Istanbul airport told us, they said (once again rudely) that they called me on my phone but did not answer (which I already told them that my phone did not have any service and to call my boyfriend's phone number). So to sum up: I will never be flying to Venice ever again."

Cons: "I am handicap and had to take my carry on baggage off the plane with the help of other passengers so I decided to take a different airline back to my surprise the help me with my luggage and carry on and from the moment I arrived at the gate toll I got out of the airport in jfk I was not allowed to pick ip my baggage they did everything I would like a call back from you 2036757227"

Cons: "Missed the flight due to delayed flight coming into Muscat."
Cons: "Food was dried out and tasteless"
Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "Pretty much everything except for the fact that they have no entertainment in Russian"
Cons: "It never happened."
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: "Flight attendance service is great"
Cons: "Boarding process too complicated with several security check points make the travel more difficult"
Pros: "I have always enjoyed my travels on Turkish airlines. Service is superb, staff is very polite and always willing to help."
Cons: "The boarding can be better organized. It can be chaotic and disorganized."
Cons: "Horrible customer service. We paid in case of change in flight plan .your airline said no money back."
Pros: "I would love to fly with them again"
Pros: "The service is very good. The plane departed on time everything was good"
Cons: "the flight delayed for more than 2 hours the seats area was narrow in j-clas"
Pros: "Price and flight time and arrival."
Cons: "Your crew at boarding treat people with no respect. I saw the boarding next door to us. The flights info was not put on board due to computer problem! The whole airport system was down for hours. The flight of Najaf city was next gate to my flight gate and one of the crew lead was disrespectful to the people and he rejected few people from the flight so he can collect money from them!"
Pros: "Leg rooms are much smaller compare to other airlines."
Pros: "Everything"
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."
Pros: "Service when it was done"
Cons: "Infrequent service Crowded Entertainment system bad"
Pros: "New plane with great entertainment system."
Cons: "Connection in Istanbul slow. Airport busy and poor ac. Missing luggage experience bad at tlv airport. Took more than 2hrs to leave customs area after filing claim."
Pros: "Turkish delights on-board"
Cons: "Chaos at the Istanbul terminal. Connecting flight was literally a mile away. We had to run through the entire terminal only to miss our connection. No help/information from the airline. They made us walk even more to get us transferred to hotel for a night. Their crew repeatedly lied about how to get new boarding passes as they were busy and didn't want to do it for us. Sent us to another transfer desk. No veg. food option even after making a special request. They said sometimes those mistakes happen. You can't call the crew from your sit to get snacks. They make you get out of your middle sit and walk to the back of the plane to get a sandwich. The boarding process at the Istanbul airport is even more chaotic. They have their own security (after having done security at the o origin in Rome AND at the IST airport), which requires standing in an hour long line and getting profiled and judged by the airline staff."
Pros: "I love the touchdown, of the smoothest ive experienced. It was a long journey but a comfy one. Great job turkish airlines."
Pros: "Love the "welcome aboard" Turkish delight. Enjoyed the pide sandwich snack."
Cons: "Offer water or any drinks instead of us having go to the kitchen area. Would be better to offer drinks in bottles instead of a glass. Also, bring snack offerings throughout cabin. I was traveling with 3 children. Could you think about offering food to the passengers with children first? This would help in getting them settled into the plane instead of waiting for their food -- which for them seems like an eternity."
Pros: "the crew was waiting for us, coming from Delhi, our connection was a little tight. the luggage did not make it to ZRH but was delivered the next day"

Terrible! They refused to let me board because of new travel restrictions, then tried to charge me an additional 3,000 eu to rebook.

Arranging an alternative (through Rome & onward by late evening) was done , but no one was at the transfer desk for an hour."

Cons: "Bathrooms were so dirty by the end of the trip. The toothpaste they gave us was so dried out, you couldn’t even break the seal on it. The ear plugs they gave out were useless. The entertainment had no movies or TV shows I liked. There was a guy next to me who overflowed his seat over into mine."
Pros: "The food was okay"

Pros: "Crew very nice and helpful , boarding also"
Cons: "No entertainment in aircraft or mobile chargers"
Cons: "I didn’t like that the food and the service and the chairs the floor is not clean actually that was bad flying flying"
Cons: "My reservation was 2 pieces luggage from Cairo to Kuwait and the same from Kuwait to Cairo ... when I went to the airport Egypt air told that my flight from Kuwait to Cairo just 1 piece and that because you didn’t reserve your ticket from Egypt air directly ... and that made a problem to me Thanks"

Pros: "My seat was dripping from the top and I got my shirt wet while I dozed off!! The cabin crew gave a bundle of tissue saying, "pls help yourself""

Cons: "To give small size water bottles after having meals and also to add new movies."
Cons: "Getting more minimal on the food service. Emirate have more and better quality"

Pros: "The staff were so helpful and friendly. Such a lovely bunch"
Pros: "NOTHING!"
Cons: "Abysmal experience on our return flight! # Abu Dhabi Airport is so outdated and an embarassment compared to the other Regional Airports # Boarding procedure still shambolic # A330 seems old and uncomfortable - even though it is a new plane # Cabin Crew so unfriendly and sour # Toilets again disgusting within 30 minutes after taking off # Food still shockingly disgusting # Onboard entertainment still inferior to Emirates/Qatar/etc."
Pros: "This time the service was ok"
Cons: "Food was mediocre,and while boarding the buisness class and economy lines are chaotic, looks like no one is in charge!"
Cons: "Three of is were travelling and they offered food only l to two of us..i think they thought my three year old doesn't need food..and on my flight to Kochi the crew was so mean.."
Cons: "The cupcake served was eaten by some animal before opening. Have lodged complaint and may send them video."
Pros: "1) It was not a full flight which was a plus. 2) the flight attendants from Abu Dhabi to Dahka were very nice and helpful."
Cons: "1) the food was not good. 2) the plane was older. 3) the exit seats are right by the bathrooms"
Pros: "The hospitality and punctuality very co op cabin crew"
Pros: "The food was awesome. The staff was friendly and courteous. Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Was not allowed to board flight, had to purchase a second d ticket, told no seats available until Sept 17 which was a lie, after an additional charge of $750.10. Could not reach customer service. Ended up buying a ticket with another airline. Would like some reimbursement in this."

Pros: "Was impressed with the entertainment, informative and comfortable"
Cons: "It is imperative that the crew insures that the safety measures and instructions are adhered to... But I must say it wasn't so... For instance a passenger in my ile was busy on the phone while we were preparing for for take off... And he wasn't the only one... Unfortunetly... Safety before all... Thank you... Will fly with you again..."
Pros: "The head flight attendant went the extra mile to ensure we got aisle seats together after our seats had been changed since we checked in. Very happy that she went the extra mile to pull it off. Movies and food were very good."
Cons: "We didn't like that our confirmed aisle seat had been switched since we checked in and were confirmed. It was uncomfortable for a while trying to solve this with the ground staff, but they put the message through and I mentioned it again and it was resolved in the end."
Cons: "This plane was quite noisy. Noise cancelling earphones helped but it was noticeably different to the next flight with air Berlin. That cabin was significantly quieter."
Cons: "Lost baggage at LA after deboarding no body guide from where to collect baggage where to go all mismanaged"
Pros: "Comfort on such a long flight was much better than other airlines. Food was great"
Pros: "Lived up to the usual Etihad high standards. Efficiency, comfort, service and value for money"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Etihad posted so many meals and beverages on flight. My baggage arrived as planned and scheduled. All places dearest when scheduled. Overall very good experience."
Pros: "attentive staff"
Cons: "nothing"
Cons: "When I complained about my lost luggage they asked me to file a complain at hometown which would be USA, but after a little explanation they filed a lost luggage complain."
Cons: "In the waiting area there was a smoking cabin nearby. It wasn't sealed properly and you could smell the smoke all around the gates. It causes me to cough. It would be nice if the room had 2 doors or else was located down a corridor away from the gates."
Pros: "What I liked? 1. Flight was early! 2. Customs and Immigrations were completed at Abu Dhabi, so no waiting in long lines at Los Angeles 3. Good customer service in flight"

Pros: "The service. The crew got things done effortlessly."
Pros: "CREW SERVICE TIMELY NATURE OF FLIGHTS"
Cons: "THE LEG SPACE 1 OF THE MEALS"
Pros: "comfrt. electrical support. got all our luggage."
Cons: "fpod"
Pros: "Service was efficient though the there were not that many movies available & after I realized that my television screen would not stay up because I was sitting in front of the exit door, I tried listening to the music but my head set was broken too! The stewards were trying to finish picking up the snack & clean up so there was less than an hour left I decided not to bother them further."
Cons: "As far as the snack that was served,it was a dry roll with little bit of cheese in it . My daughter & I both did not take an other bite and put the rest of it back in the bag!"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "They need better food"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and genuinely friendly / helpful."
Cons: "Many passengers were rude, standing in the aisle near the entry to the restroom / galley area. The crew repeatedly asked them to sit and they would sometimes ignore then outright and other times sit for a short while only to get up once again. For me the seat cushion was a bit hard for such a long flight."
Pros: "All ok."
Cons: "Seats seem pretty short. Only half my leg fits on them and I am not a tall person."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "This ar line has no absolute respect for its people. It seems because it is a fight going to India, which apparently it is not an important country they can do anything. The worst gate (I do not know if this is the air line choice or not), there was no line to boarding, there was not enough seat at the gate and one of the people at the gate was insisting that travelers should sit. The crew was rude to the Indian people, however they themselves were not acting properly. The bus came to get the people from the gate to the plane in Abu Dabi was really bad."
Pros: "Perhaps since it is in the shadow of Emirates, Etihad has been neglected. It is a truly outstanding airline."
Cons: "No frequent flyer sharing with Delta, unlike its partner Alitalia."
Pros: "Punctual"
Cons: "Nothing not to like."
Cons: "Layovers"
Pros: "Good food Good Service too"
Cons: "Think improving better service in rest room Long flight - magazines on demand to suit each national - no idea about its practicability"
Cons: "The flight from Riyadh ALWAYS leaves late. Arabs have so sense of punctuality."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Seats"
Cons: ".."
Cons: "The check in agent missed to give me a tag for my hand luggage When ground crew at the gate didn't see the tag they placed it in a cage and a scale it was underweight & within dimensions, the wheel however was sticking out of the cage and for that it was $300 charge!! Let alone the humiliation.. It was pay in 5 mins or you will be booted off... I swear I found another family almost crying as they coming from a connecting flight didn't go through the check in desk and paid $1200 I have been using same handbag on airlines including etihad for 5 years without any problems ... Go figure"
Cons: "1. After the Baggage items were weighed & slips were attached, they had to be handled by us and the Staff was very uncooperative. Actually one passenger ahead of us complained that why he had to take his Baggage items to the conveyor. As I understood, it is responsibility of the Etihad Air lines Staff to handle & take care of Baggage items after airline stickers are printed & applied/ attached on them. Counter clerks were not cooperative & cordial at all. 2. Food was OK except the Breakfast or meal before arrival at Abu Dhabi."
Pros: "There is no single thing to like. Flight is delayed rudiculously and the seating is pathetic. Not a single penny worth for the money we spent.. Etihad sucks.."
Cons: "There is no single thing to like. Flight is delayed rudiculously and the seating is pathetic. Not a single penny worth for the money we spent.. Etihad sucks.."
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "You get out to change flight and you go back to the same plane"
Cons: "No English subtitles on TV or movies"
Pros: "The crew on flight was nice"
Cons: "Same cannot be said for ground staff including managers. I had to explain several times that crowds are a trigger for my son with autism. I asked for preferential boarding, was given any. Asked for assistance with security, this was only given after I had to fight for it. Staff need to be aware that when we ask for it, it’s not because we want preferential treatment, we are trying to avoid a meltdown for our kids that get super stressed out by situations such as these. My child cannot stand still for long and runs away. When I stopped him to talk him though the process so he doesn’t run, we got hurried. Empathy will go a long way...."
Pros: "I didn’t"
Cons: "I was a business class passenger and the flight might as well have been economy, with the exception of the food. There was no personal entertainment, the seat foot rest did not work — it was an old plane — the seats recline all the back to the lap of the person behind you — so when the guy in front of me was done eating he proceeded to lay back — however I wasn’t done eating — and it knocked over my glass of sparkling water —- typically even if a passenger is still eating there is still room for the person to lay back — I had to push the persons seat quickly before my whole tray was wrecked."
Pros: "Boarding on time"
Cons: "No healthy food options"
Pros: "Quick boarding."
Cons: "Rough landing in Bah."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Back to back delayed flights, no entertainment, no food or drinks, slow luggage delivery, etc"
Pros: "Nice clean plane"
Cons: "Snacks would have been better than a cheese sandwich"
Pros: "Service with a smile and a more humane approach would be good"
Cons: "Same hygiene and quality standards across flight on all sectors"
Cons: "Again entertainment system was horrible with flickering screens"
Pros: "Ok"
Cons: "Ok"
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Lost my checkedin baggage. Missed my connection flight from Muscat due to delay in arrival from Istanbul"
Pros: "Cheap airfares, direct flights"
Cons: "Flight crew did not clear cabin at takeoff and landing. Tables left down, seats reclined. Did not enforce standards resulting in restricted egress in case of emergency. Allowed passengers to get up, collect thier bags from overhead compartments immediately after landing and during taxi. Clogged asiles. Poor air con during flight. Extremely cramped seating. Low budget and lax attitude. Consistently late flights On a positive note, direct nonstop flights to major destinations at good rates. You get what you pay for though."
Pros: "New 787 seats were extremely comfortable for short-haul, regional. 2-2-2 may not suit some people for long haul. Good selection of in-flight entertainment. Nice sincere service."
Cons: "Boarding was unpleasant. Buses to aircraft: had to wait approx 10 mins in the bus on the tarmac whilst the previous two buses unloaded. Then the actual staircase / boarding process took nearly 10 minutes... queueing in 41 degree heat. Muscat is a very new airport and many gates with airbridges were not being used. As the home airport of the national carrier I wouldn't expect tarmac boarding."
Pros: "in flight entertainment"
Cons: "dozens of infants all screaming and scattered across the whole plane food was strangely not good at all although we had a vegetarian meal pre booked"
Pros: "Got 3 seats so I could sleep"
Cons: "everything ok"
Pros: "Food in business class was good although it was odd that breakfast was served at 3am while “lunch” was served prior to arrival once we all woke up."
Cons: "The flight was the “older” business class set up with lacks privacy... not normally too much of a problem but there seemed to be quite a few upgrades from economy so it was full of people chatting loudly. There were problems with boarding that delayed the flight by an hour. Also, the boarding at Muscat’s new airport wasn’t great with the lounge telling us to board while, at the gate, boarding hadn’t started. MIght not be much of a problem except the kids were sleeping on our shoulders and there were no seats at the gates."
Pros: "New Muscat terminal is lovely. service very attentive and food v. Nice."
Pros: "Impossible to enjoy a flight you didn't choose and were forced to fly on due to a schedule change, especially when the flights you'd booked had much better timing for a fixed teacher's holiday schedule. Avoid Oman Air unless you are sadistic and enjoy forced flight changes and no compensation. As I was forced to change to a flight to one arriving at 03.10 with my work starting at 06.00, I tried (and failed due to a lack of space and fidgety neighbour) to sleep all the flight to be fresh and professional for my work. The booked flight which was forcibly cancelled got me home 9pm the night before work. Oman Air refused a suggestion to upgrade me to business class so I could try and sleep."
Cons: "I am a teacher. I can't choose my holiday times. I get three fixed weeks in summer. In both 2017 + 2018 Oman Air changed their schedule forcing me to change my flights. I was out of pocket for a small amount - they refused to pay the $27.60. I was to arrive home at 9pm for an 06.00 start to work they changed my flight so I arrived at 04.00. I asked for an upgrade to business class to try and sleep. They ignored the request. They instead sent me a copy of the small print saying that they were allowed to change anyone's flights and give zero compensation if the 'client' is informed two weeks in advance. I will avoid Oman Air from now on, even if they seem to offer the best times to fly."
Pros: "Loved all of it. Zero complaints"
Cons: "No comment"
Cons: "Poor service Not adhering to time Very bad air conditioning"
Pros: "Nithing"
Cons: "In Oman airs home airport there was no service desk. When the flight was delayed the sent 1 agent do deal with a full glitch’s worth of guests. Even though the delay was over 6 hours they gave no compensation besides lounge access to a lounge that is not fully functional. The next morning (yes the delay was overnight and they didn’t provide a hotel room) they called us all to the gate only to tell us they still were waiting for the plane to be repaired (the night before they’d Told us the flight would be in time as they’d flown another plane in). Again there was only one Oman air agent and just normal airport staff to handle the full flight. People were yelling and there was a lot of anger but no official announcements were ever made and only rumors passed from those who actually had a chance to talk to the on me guy. Finally when i arrived in Bangkok it seemed like they had there act together as there were many agents on the gangway to assist people to find connecting flights. Being so late there was only on flight for me and several others trying to get to Phuket. An agent took us to immigration and told us all he’d meet us in the other side to take us to the check in. HE DIDN’T SHOW UP. We couldn’t go back in the airport to find him or anyone from Oman air and were left to find an airport employee who graciously helped us find the booking office and just make the flight. I fly internationally regularly and this was by far the worst airline experience I’ve ever had or even heard about."
Cons: "Slow check in at Kathmandu"
Pros: "Decent entertainment system and choices."
Cons: "Poor quality headphones - jacks are often messed up make sure you have your own. Got food poisoning on Muscat to Paris flight - other than that the food tended to be quite bland. Need to give out more water on flight to combat dehydration as well. Stopping in Muscat's terminal was like a time warp back to a 1970s mall. Also no direct connection to terminal, planes park out on tarmac and take people on 1 km bus ride to connect to terminal. Legroom was pretty tight but not horrid Never thought I would be as happy to get back to Manila!"
Pros: "The crew were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "No entertainment and the food was a joke ! The trip wS expensive at 770$ !"
Pros: "Service, food, Cabin cleanliness, friendly service"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. There was an overnight delay of 8 hours until the next flight. During the flight, the young male cabin crew spent more time sitting and chatting with other young male passengers and not attending to there duties. I will not fight on another Oman Air flight if this is the way you conduct business."
Cons: "Very delayed. Would not put us on a direct flight."
Pros: "Cleanliness and Staff treated"
Cons: "space of Place of departure area and the waiting places are very crowded there were people sitting on the ground and also delay in flying."
Pros: "Better options in A/V meal"
Cons: "Food."
Pros: "Straight to my destination"
Cons: "The worst food you could ever have in a expensive flight. Just pretzels and water. And the plane is really old & the chairs are really stiff that hearts the back"
Cons: "The airport is conjugated."
Cons: "Bad, flight was delayed by an hour without announcement. Further another 10 mins wait due to some problem at aero bridge. Overall poor."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Less legroom than usual/expected. Crew was fine but wasn't too proactive and took quite a while to get things going regarding food/beverages."
Pros: "The same... good flight"
Pros: "Staff trying to think of what we need before they ask for it. Impressive."
Cons: "All was fine"
Pros: "Was the cheapest flight for the dates on offer and now apparent short cuts"
Cons: "n/a"
Pros: "Everything was awesome!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "I didn't make the flight, my travel partner was in an accident and the cancellation fees were more than the tickets. That sucks..."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Was bumped off my flight without notice, because my flight was delayed 30 minutes. Arrived at the airport before the gate closed to tell me I was on a flight 7 hours later. Oman air employees were incredibly rude and unwilling to help."
Pros: "Other than the smile of the crew i did not like anything. It was late at night and old AC . I really liked the massage in the business lounge."
Cons: "Old AC no entertainment no usb to charge phon. Seat old with manual recline and don't recline fully. Kept us business messengers waiting in the bus more than 15 minutes because of one late passenger."
Pros: "Prompt; good leg room; decent food on each leg of the flight"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Pretty much nothing."
Cons: "This is an international flight which didnt have an in seat entertainment. They didnt announce anything and this is the only airline where they serve the food without even checking if you want or not. It was a mid night flight and i was fast asleep after take off. They woke me up and just threw the food on the table and walked off. Another first of its kind is they serve solid food first and followed by drinks so even if you are thirsty, you have to wait. All juice will be served later. and the most uncomfortable old seats. Probably they use different flights for different sectors and to India, they consider every passenger as just "cattle" class and use the worst flight they have. But no other option. There are few direct flights and this is the only choice. So have to fly with them again unfortunately."
Pros: "Plane took off an hour late. Confusion among boarding agents at the gate. Old aircraft."
Pros: "Na"
Cons: "The seat was atrocious"
Pros: "Movies"
Pros: "Airline service was good and on-time. Food was OK. Amenity kits provided like toothbrush good. Aircraft clean. Cheaper fares than others."
Cons: "Not being able to secure seat before 24 hours. Use of busses at Muscat airport made boarding and de-planing slow. In Flight entertainment limited choice. Much poorer than Emirates or Qatar. B787 Dreamliner system better than A330 aircraft. Some USB port not working. At least 1 toilet out of order whole flight."
Pros: "It was slightly better then walking.."
Cons: "Pretty much evevrything"
Pros: "Only the lounge experience during the layover is worth mentioning which was quite comfortable in my opinion"

Pros: "YES"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "they woke me up in the middle of the night to give me food.."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by nearly 4 hours due to a cargo loading issue in Mombasa. Communication from Ethiopian Airlines staff regarding the issue & delay was very poor. Passengers were becoming very anxious and tense regarding the flight, if it would depart, and the safety of the plane. Improved communication from the Ethiopian Airline staff would have gone a long way to calming the situation and reassuring passengers."
Cons: "The most unprofessional ground staff I have met coupled with the most disorganised airport"
Pros: "It was a very short flight"
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Staff needs to be briefed on what an insulin pump is."
Pros: "Flight time changed without notice. Delays in Medinah caused us to miss our connecting flight to Johannesburg. Really poor communication. No agents would take calls in Jeddah. Really terrible service. Would avoid using this airline at all cost. Not the first time I've been delayed by them"

Pros: "Was on time"
Pros: "I had an extra seat in my row which was nice."
Cons: "No flight overnight is ever very comfortable. It’s difficult to sleep."

Cons: "There was a fight but nothibg to do with the flight crew just some passenger with mental issues"
Cons: "They didn’t announce when boarding started/what zones were to go."
Cons: "The whole thing was a disaster. I lost my connection flight due to incompetence from the Ethiopian airlines representative"

Cons: "Food was sub par. Leg room limited."

Pros: "After a bit of confusion in ADD airport, we reached the terminal where my connecting flight was leaving from. Terminal 1 of ADD airport should be avoided at all costs! Boarding and the flight crew did a admirable and top job and made the difference for me."
Cons: "Terminal 1 Disgusting. Rundown, embarrassing, chaos everywhere and no real sense of security. No police or security presence. You could just walk right into a gate! I was shocked to see this especially being from NYC. If you can avoid Terminal 1 do so. The seats were DISGUSTING! Dirty, warped fabric seating was dirty and caked on. Smelled and many seats were visually broken. I'm glad I brought with me some Clorox wipes to wipe my area down with. You get what you pay for but wow! I would not spend my money on this airline again."

Cons: "stoping in irland only"
Pros: "Comfortable flight, pleasant airline attendants."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Very helpful, attentive and kind cabin staff."
Cons: "Somewhat dirty ( and smelly ) aircraft even though they are a very new fleet. Some seats had strange patches and stains. Overall cabin experience can be improved in terms of hygiene and food quality ( food was mediocre or slightly worse). Seat ahead reclines almost too much into personal space in the new 787 aircraft. The LCD displays don't pivot so it's virtually impossible to view the entertainment when the occupant of the seat in front fully reclines ( a somewhat irritating issue on a long flight )"
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: "Their flight attendants care about people, and overall it's a great airline, except for food."
Cons: "Ethiopian Airlines consistently has sub-quality food."
Pros: "Movie during flight and food were good"
Cons: "Only showed one movie and then a blank screen for half the flight They waited forever to remove the food trays after being served Delayed at the Terminal for a power outage, but NO announcement made over the Intercom for 30 minutes. Never helped non Egyptians with paperwork necessary to get through customs"
Pros: "Friendly crew very responsive."
Pros: "Flight was smooth"
Cons: "Seats were dirty"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "The crew very kind and made me feel comfortable"
Cons: "Old 767, with not comfortable set up and no individual TV set."
Pros: "Ok"
Pros: "The flight attendants seemed a bit disorganized delivering the food and drinks"
Cons: "I find it exceptionally bizarre that for a company whose name represents a country that spends more than half the year fasting that there isn't an option for this unless you specifically ask online."
Pros: "The best flight ever and the crew is super cool"
Pros: "Staff were pleasant"
Cons: "One segment of my flight did not have the gluten free meal I had requested ahead of time. Super crowded."
