Airline reviews

The entertainment selection was great, boarding process was smooth. However, the staff were so rude, my tray table was broken so had drinks split on me. I had a child coughing on me and kicking me in her sleep. The person in front of me put his seat down so far that my knees were against the seat (I’m only 5’9). The person behind me used her tray table to sleep so I couldn’t put my seat back. She woke up for breakfast, by which point I wanted sleep so I put my seat back and she complained about it so I had to put the seat upright again!

Pros: "Check in was okay."
Cons: "We thought that the food was not up to Emirates standard as we have previously flown with them before. Disappointing really."
Cons: "The entertainment system did not work properly"
Pros: "crew was super attentive, seat was very comfortable, but a few of the buttons did not work properly."
Cons: "Some of the fixtures were falling off, and the side controller for the TV screen was not connected or working. It is to be expected from an Older A 380, but not a deal breaker by any means"
Pros: "Very friendly staff, prompt service, smooth boarding, clean cabin."
Cons: "I usually love the food on Emirates but this was really not good. Barely edible!"
Pros: "The flight was on schedule, departure and arrival."
Cons: "The seats were very narrow."
Cons: "Great airline, great staff."
Cons: "Me"
Pros: "Crew were great, entertainment was great, all in all a really comfortable flight despite not getting an aisle seat which would have made it even better"
Cons: "I discovered when I hit Dubai that despite having an eight an a half hour layover that I didn't qualify for the free hotel I thought I did qualify for as someone with an eight hour plus flight so that was a little disappointing have had it before so assumed it was on all flights but that ended up being a negative surprise..."
Pros: "Boarding and Crew are excellent toilets are clean Gluten Free meals are available, that's a big plus"
Cons: "Lots of movies to choose from however I felt the choices were similar in a way! ( Example: you'll find the Drama movies are almost the same as the Romantic movies or the Comedy movies)"
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment is quite good. Getting on the plane was a fine experience. The flight itself went smoothly."
Cons: "Boarding either didn’t announce my zone or didn’t do it clearly enough. The meal service was decent but I don’t think the crew came by with tea or coffee much. The seats were narrower than I recall from previous emirates flights. Information on connections were said to have been updated in the entertainment system, but were not updated in actual fact."
Cons: "The seats on the 777-300ER were tiny compared to the seats on the A380 from JFK to dubai. My wife and I are both small people and we were cramped. This is very unfair to us and even so to larger people on such a long leg The entertainment screens were also very poor. Small, low res"
Pros: "great flight service with accommodating staff. in flight entertainment had awesome variety"
Pros: "The entertainment options were very good"

Boarding was orderly and efficiently executed, although some announcement about the 30-minute boarding delay would have been appreciated. Onboard the seating was quite comfortable compared with other airlines I have travelled on and the crew was exceptional in their service - really customer-focused. The meals were tasty with unlimited snacks and complimentary drinks. Generally, I would highly recommend this airline."
Cons: "The TV and remote controls could be updated. Touch screen was largely slow to respond and the whole system could be more intuitive."

Cons: "Time of flight really sucked. 4:00 AM departure meant arriving at 1.00 AM. Tough way to start a day"
Pros: "Professionalism of flight crew. Movie & entertainment selection. Overall cleanliness of aircraft."
Cons: "Ground crew was not well organized. Lacked attention and professionalism. Bad way to start a flight."
Pros: "Emirates flight was fine. Problem was booking a South African Airways codebase flight on Kayak. Neither SAA or Emerates were able to look up our booking reference and so we did not get seat assignments until the airport."
Cons: "Codebase flights and no one looking as us as customers."

Cons: "I paid for the higher wifi bandwidth, but the service was spotty and some websites/social media wouldn't load. Even some texts wouldn't send. I wish there was more legroom between the seats for such a long flight. But the value for the overseas flight was still quite good."

Pros: "Emirates are always very good in every department, unfortunately for the third trip in succession on the outward journey they ran out of the main dish on the dinner menu."
Pros: "Solid service."
Cons: "I did not see on the website that in order to get Dubai Connect you were meant to spend a certain amount of money. I thought it was due to an eight-hour layover. I have done it on two other flights. When I arrived people had me running all over the place trying to get information on why I was not eligible. If I knew it was based on rate or it was clearer on the website I would not have booked the flight."

Pros: "The flight was empty and the luxury to choose your open row of seats"

Pros: "Sweet crew members"
Cons: "Trip delay"
Pros: "Perfect take off and landing. Very smooth flight with good service"
Pros: "On the plus side, the food, service, entertainment, and comfort on Turkish are the best of any Economy class overseas flights. For that reason, they are my top pick."
Cons: "I can't understand why I was booked with an impossibly tight connection. It's a huge airport, with multiple security checkpoints with long lines. I had an hour between flights, and the first flight landed just five minutes late. The gate for the second flight had already closed by the time I cleared the first security checkpoint. It would have been completely impossible to make it to the gate on time. Turkish put me up in a hotel, etc., for the night, and there were dozens of people in similar situations. But the airline shouldn't offer connections that are totally impossible."
Cons: "Boarding took a longer time than normal"
Cons: "Options for vegetarians were not really good."
Cons: "Boarding was very annoying because when you go through security they make you feel like a total criminal for no reason. Checking our laptops as if we have something to hide. We already went through 3 security checks prior to boarding the flight. Security staff was extremely rude and inconsiderate for peoples belongings."
Cons: "Istanbul Airport: Overcrowding at Arrival / Transit Terminal Way finding-poor signage for transit passengers"
Pros: "Flight was on time, great cabin crew."
Cons: "Seats and Food was not as good as it used to be."
Pros: "First leg (Mia to Instanbul) crew was excellent!"
Cons: "second leg (Istanbul to Johannesburg) crew were rude!!!"
Cons: "Older plane, uncomfortable seats, no individual entertainment systems. Long boarding without a lot of staff facilitating extra coat/overhead luggage storage because of winter, then we sat on tarmac for two hours because they missed their slot to take-off."
Pros: "Everything good"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Service, food, staff—all excellent!"
Cons: "The cabins on both flights were too warm."
Pros: "we made it safe everyone was nice things went smoothly"
Cons: "the 40 min delay added and extra half day to the trip // everything else was fine // i don't like this form either, should be simpler... you make it seem like you care for me, but then I'm just a piece on a conveyor belt"
Pros: "No any trouble during flight."
Cons: "Too long distance between terminals and very short time between my connecting flights make it almost not possible."
Pros: "Great service in the airplane plus they offer some amenities like slippers, tooth paste and toothbrush, they offer you wet towels to clean and refresh yourself during he flight. Really good."
Cons: "Very disorganized the gate checking, staff ne d hospitality training . You ESP not have time for your queries and concerns . They are always in a hurry to finish talkign to you . Poor hygiene. The bathrooms are very dirty and has nomjand soap to wash your hands . Male staff in board come across unpolite. ingelt inwelcomed by the male flight attendant port side at the back.?"
Pros: "Good entertainment system with lots of options."
Cons: "The plane was uncomfortably warm throughout the (long!) flight, which made it difficult to get any rest."
Pros: "Good and comfortable"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Crew, entertainment, boarding"
Cons: "I had a stop in Istanbul airport and a change of planes The first plane although much larger than the second the set leg room was very tight, for 186cm tall person it was a disaster The second plane however had better leg room and was more comfortable than the first"
Pros: "Missed the flight due to delayed flight coming into Muscat."
Cons: "Missed the flight due to delayed flight coming into Muscat."
Cons: "They was late for boarding The food is bad It's was my bad experience this travel"
Pros: "Turkish tea."
Cons: "The food was not good"
Pros: "Outstanding service Excellent food Adequate entertainment Seat recline was good for economy"
Cons: "For a long flight (8+ hours) legroom on this Airbus was quite cramped Again poor boarding announcements resulted in very chaotic boarding process"
Pros: "Operativity, cleaning, food,"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight canceled"
Pros: "I eventually arrived at the destination."
Cons: "Difficult to communicate with cabin crew due to lack of English. Flight was delayed by 1 hour. General atmosphere on plane was chaotic I think due to the small plane and length of flight as large numbers of people needed to use toilets."
Pros: "Not trying to be flattering here but it really is a good airline."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "This is a government run airline with very poor customer service. I flew 6 flights in December, 2016 in business class - out of which 5 flights were late. There was no help at the transfer desk in Istanbul to get onto another flight as my connecting flight was missed because the original outbound flight was late. The customer service staff both at the lounge and the transfer desk were inept and rude and did not want to help. I shudder to think how economy passengers are treated."
Cons: "1) No organized boarding process - there is a general melee at the boarding gate with a lot of shoving and pushing. 2) Customer service staff are rude, incompetent and unhelpful 3) No recognition that customers are to be served 4) Food selection in business class was mediocre and poor 5) Old aircraft - on flight from Istanbul to London, business class was 3 abreast with the middle seat being used as a tray table. 6) Sleeper class is mediocre - seat width is poor and one cannot even turn on the side"
Pros: "The crew in Nigeria were very helpful. Hated the food but hey plane food is always bad in economy. Loved the inflight movies"
Pros: "One stewardess was very helpful, even though she could not speak English."
Cons: "13 1/2 hour flight three rows from the rear of the plane. I feel and smell like a sardine. The food was horrid. I tasted it, but thought best of eating it for fear of food poisoning. It also looked disgusting. Couldn't understand any of the announcements."
Pros: "The variety of films on show was decent"
Cons: "The crew skipped our aisle whilst delivering the toiletry bags, some announcements were made purely in Turkish without regard to English passengers. The boarding gate from Istanbul was opened much later than the advertised times."
Pros: "Turkish was the only airline I've flown that actually did not give the impression of nickle and diming but really made clear and concerted and well executed efforts to exceed expectations on all fronts, even food and drink. A huge accomplishment. They really put most of their competitors to shame."
Cons: "Only issue was that the videos kept freezing up, though they did remedy that problem. And I wish they had a foreign hub further to the west. Much as I loved the airline, I would only fly them again to Turkey or further east. It took me 22 hours door to door from Venice to Portland, Maine, when it shouldn't have been much more than half that. It's just too Far East to be a very practical option for visiting Western Europe from the US."
Pros: "excellent food, service"
Pros: "Unfortunately for Turkish A. the plane was less than 1/3 full...tourism to and from Turkey seems to be way down for a number of reasons. That made it spacious coupled with a relaxed pace of passengers and crew. The lunch served was quite tasty and satisfying. No hassles about carryons weight or size. Electronics aboard seemed to work fine for those interested."
Cons: "Food took up too much tray space and crew did not clear trays promptly. Messages from pilot were inaudible. We went through more than four security checks and we were only transferring planes in Istanbul. Terminal was short on places to sit and had excessive duty free shopping. Walks in terminal went on for miles. With the flight gate only posted 35 minutes ahead of departure, this was a problem."
Pros: "Very comfortable, lovely stuff, the vegan food was good"
Pros: "Friendly people , correct timing , good prices"
Cons: "The chairs didn,t go well for sleeping And we had 12 hrs to do ."
Cons: "I did not like that it was a delay from 1 hour with the flight"
Cons: "Entwrtainment Audio was noisy"
Pros: "Usb charging, entertainment was nice."
Cons: "Ran out of chicken dishes- only had beef to offer. Seats were slightly uncomfortable. Crew was not very friendly/smiley."
Pros: "Love turkish airlines i was so suprised by the qaulity of the food and drinks. Even the free 5 star hotel for the 14 hour layover was amazing."
Cons: "The plane had no charging port for phones."
Pros: "Great flight....enjoyed it thoroughly....."
Cons: "The Seats were really old and no new movies"
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: "The flight condition should have been better and the Etihad should learn how to help guests reach their destinations on time"
Pros: "That flight was sublime.The 787 business layout excellent,the crew excellent as well as the food and drinks.Again very surprised after previously read bad reviews...."
Cons: "Again pyjama on business class will have equalised Qatar business class.Well done,otherwise,Etihad."
Pros: "Yes crew was very good"
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"
Cons: "There was no complimentary toothbrush, and socks to wear like other international flights. To disembark from plane you have to go down stairs, which is not easy for seniors. And the same to board in the plane."
Cons: "As above"
Cons: "I asked for dental kit but they did not give me any."
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: "Etihad transfer bus to Dubai from Abu Dhabi is free, super convenient, and a great experience!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I have never been to an airline which will not even give you a can of Diet Coke"
Pros: "I like service in cabines"
Cons: "I didn't like service in JFK counters..they didn't let me in my hand carrying bag to cabin..but some passengers had big bags then my bag..."
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"
Cons: "No wheelchair assistance at Los Angeles airport :("
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..."
Cons: "Flight did not take off due to technical prOblems with the plane. Looking to get a refund but very bad response rate."
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: "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: "I had an extra seat in my row which was nice."

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: "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.

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"

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."
