Pros: "Great crew! Excellent business class suite"

Pros: "Finally the staggered deboarding. It feels like COVID has actually disciplined us passengers this time and kept us from behaving like unruly cattle once the plane halts."
Cons: "Initial confusion at boarding with paperwork and onward passage through Athens,GREECE. Once again the airport teams reached out to my colleagues and I ahead of time and managed to resolve to satisfaction. Perhaps reservation team can trigger a call to the passengers while they are still at home asking for the documentation validation electronically over a secured database.... just a thought. Again, being a part of the Experience and Innovation team, travel and tourism needs less human interaction, now more than ever. While we digitalized the obvious, the exceptions can remain humanized."

Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Perfect"

Cons: "They do not understand the word priority at Doha airport. Business class passengers boarded last."

Pros: "The crew was exceptional! Seat was comfortable and extra seat not occupied next to me giving me extra elbow room also in addition to sufficient leg room."
Cons: "I would have a few suggestions but it would rise the price of ticket significantly. We got what we paid for."

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "We were told to board, but then kept in another area close on 1 hour before we could get on the plane and this area had no bathroom facilities. The spread of seating on the plane made no sense with many open seats but also many squashed rows of people. The crew was visibly tired and irritated, they also ran out of a few catering items. It seemed as if last minute, a few different flights were combined into this one which lowered the quality."

Pros: "Food and leg room"
Cons: "All was fine"

Cons: "The vegetarian option for breakfast was a stale waffle with apple compote. Inedible."

Pros: "Food selection. However, the snacks need to be readily available on long flights."
Cons: "Entertainment is lacking behind other international carriers"

Pros: "The crew was amazing. Made traveling with infant little less harder."
Cons: "The crew from Doha to Kolkata segment could have been little more helpful, especially when they see someone travelling with small kids"

Pros: "Yes"

Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "It seems the major airlines use older aircraft when the destination of the flight is a third world country(or Africa). The seats aren't as comfortable and the entertainment system (screens) are not as good as a Qatar and Europe bound flights."

Pros: "The flights attendants were very helpful and polite. What I enjoyed the most was the level of comfort I had. I was able to sleep for almost the entire flight. That's why it felt like it wasn't even a long flight."
Cons: "We did leave a little late but it was out of the control of the pilots and flights attendants."

Pros: "There was adequate seat room. The device was good."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."

Pros: "Last row seats are never optimal but tha flight attendants were above par!!!"
Cons: "Wonderful people! Cannot day enough about the difference that makes."

Pros: "Staff was great"

Pros: "Thank you for a very good flight experience both from Philadelphia to Doha and Doha to Johannesburg."
Cons: "The breakfast options could have been better, but I was fed and happy, and the flight attendant was kind enough to bring me green tea when it wasn’t readily available on the cart."

Cons: "Nicmze clean aircraft with goods legal room in economy"

Pros: "Good service."
Cons: "Poor choice of entertainment."

Pros: "crew was excellent, very attentive"
Cons: "food - i am not a fussy eater but it's as if qatar tries do please too many tastes and does not suceed at any. why not have middle eastern food choices too? but then i guess you can't argue with the price"

Pros: "First time flying on Qatar and must say that the crew was excellent. One of the best crews I have ever flown in the last 22 years of New York - India sector. Special mention for HAIFA my hostess for flight QR702 on April 12th. She was the best hostess I have ever had!"
Cons: "The food wasn’t bad but since I flew Etihad in July 2017 from New York to Abu Dhabi to Mumbai and back my memories were fresh and Egihad’s food was definitely a notch higher."

Pros: "In my departure flight, there were many empty seats and the crew let us move to another seat to lay down and sleep. Also the food was very good and there was a great selection of movies."

Pros: "Never spending too long waiting for anything."
Cons: "More realistic options to upgrade. Example I can board a train in London and upgrade to first class for £20 to Edinburgh. If you have a coach class or business class empty. Have capacity to feed extra or not. Last minute upgrades can be both a revenue stream and another option to further satisfy some customers. Particularly older generations that can afford and would fund such a win win appealing."

Cons: "Seat to LA was broken"

Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "When the flight is changed by airline for their convenience, they would have given preferential treatment to the passengers involved. We had to bare the cost of food and make us comfortable on our own due to the delay in transit."

Pros: "In-flight treatment"
Cons: "The seat"

Pros: "Smooth take off and landing."

Pros: "The crew aboard the flight were kind and thoughtful and definitely oriented toward service."
Cons: "The security process at the gate was really disorderly. Perhaps it is because it is a new and extra step required by the US but it was definitely not efficiently handled."

Pros: "I like everything about the flight"
Cons: "Everything was ok"

Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "The friendliness of the staff from check in to arrival!"

Pros: "I freceuntly fly between the US and South Africa and only fly via Qatar Airways, and every experience thus far has been great. The food is good quality, friendly crew and I would recommend it to anyone."
Cons: "The sandwiches are a little dry and movie selection a little limited."

Pros: "Doha airport is easy to move through; They put me in an exit row behind a bulkhead has plenty of legroom."
Cons: "Reading light wasn't aimed properly, and there was nowhere to put anything because of it being an exit row behind a bulkhead. That meant, that I had to hold anything I wanted during take-off, and landing, and the entertainment system had to be stowed during those times as well, so I couldn't even listen to music as the only controls were the touchscreen."

Pros: "Unfortunately..."
Cons: "...as mentioned, I don't have the pleasure of rating this flight because of the boarding delays and missing the flight. Very disappointing."

Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"

Pros: "Service of air stewards very friendly and polite"
Cons: "This goes for Qatarfigjta from harare to Doha and Doha to Washington DC and back. I am not going to give individual report on each one. Food - my daughter could barely eat anything and the vegetarian meals were stone cold most of time. It was hard to eat at Qatar airport because not only is the food terrible (Burger King and bad Asian food) but outrageously expensive. Our media system did not work for one leg. ** way to many ads on your media system. Every time you watch a new TV episode, you have to sit through 5-6 ads for stuff that is not interesting and the same each time. ** plane info on media system keeps reverting to Arabic even when English is indicated as preferred la gauge. We had to place our iPads in checked luggage for flights from harare to USA as we went through Qatar. *** I asked for quiet seats and was given seats near kitchen and toilet even though I booked in hours in advance. One leg had my ten year old daughter and I in different rows even though I checked in 4-5 hours in advance Of flight . ** staff moved my hand luggage without my permission and without informing me - it was stressful trying to find it."

Pros: "Excellent experience overall, the food was decent, the seats were comfortable and had enough space for me at 6ft tall, the staff were very friendly and helpful, entertainment selection was good with plenty of new movies out. I had no problems with my layover. The baggage allowance was great as I had extra luggage from my trip. I'm very happy with their customer service, the day before my first flight I received a phone call from Qatar's customer service saying that due to delays I wouldn't be able to make my connecting flight to Edinburgh so they would like to book me on another flight instead of me having to wait 24 hours in Doha. I was thoroughly impressed with this service."
Cons: "I did not have wifi available from Doha-Johannesburg"

Cons: "1. rude staff - i stood in Jburg at the counter for 13 minutes (i checked my clock) while 8 staff ladies spoke among themselves in a myriad of languages. FINALLY one lady asked if i had been helped! I said no and she was clearly less than thrilled to be the one to help with my question. i literally just wanted to ask if my seat assignment was a window, middle or aisle, but it was like i was the bane of her existence and i interrupted their social hour. On my outbound flight (ORD to DOH) I also watched three staff members be beyond rude to guest after guest at the check in counter regarding baggage when they came forward to "re check-in" which was a new requirement for most people. There was a lot of general confusion on behalf of the consumers and the staff was NOT the least bit patient or helpful in explaining what they needed from us or why this flight had different procedures than normal. I still don't know why they were so fussy about baggage and made everyone re check in at the gate in fact. And they didnt do it to my baggage so i have no idea why they were so rude to some and completely left others alone. (didn't seem to have to do with size, carrying of electronics, i don't know?) 2. the physical flight - you changed my original flight time to something that was REALLY close for my connection from DOH to CDG, so you instead bumped me to a later flight without consulting me. it would have caused me to miss a connection flight I booked separately through EasyJet from Pairs to my home airport BIQ. I had to figure that out on my own. RUSH through Doha to make my 35 min connection and barely was allowed to board my onward Paris flight by the Qatar gate staff which was only cutting it close as a result of YOUR changes! Yet i was treated like i was somehow "late" and wouldn't be able to board ??? Again incredibly rude staff. Subsequently you lost my luggage because the connection was too tight. i landed on Friday and it didn't catch up to me until Tuesday. Not one person has said sorry or offered any restitution. And this is honestly what upsets me the most. I doubt anyone even reads this. pathetic. I work for a travel club and since Monday (so in 4 days) I have actively reached out to 4 clients to cancel and re-booked their Qatar airways flight to another carrier to get them to Johannesburg. They will be doing the same safari experience I did, but I will NOT recommend and book my clients on Qatar after my experience."

Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Comfortable seat and good service"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Great crews, excellent airplanes, wonderful in transit experince."
Cons: "In flight coach meals were average."

Pros: "On time departure, friendly crew. Comfortable seats for economy class, plenty of entertainment options. A pleasant experience"

Pros: "The food and entertainment systems were good. The staff on the plane were pleasant."

Pros: "Again on time and effortless boarding made the overall experience a good one."
Cons: "Our suitcase was damaged...still in the process of trying to get it fixed. Hopefully it will be done soon. I will then update this report. Could maybe clean the toilets as it did become a bit messy."

Pros: "The best service"
Cons: "Nothing bad to say"

Pros: "Amazing airline with excellent crew and ground staff ever willing to help!"

Pros: "They only served us food once in a 14 hour flight from Doha to Washington DC. We were starving the entire trip. Very poor service and food quality too."

Pros: "The service from the crew was amazing"
Cons: "The food was not bad compared to some air lines"

Pros: "The staff was friendly throughout and boarding was quick. There were no delays in taking off. They had also helped organize a hotel for the long layover including meal vouchers, visa, and return transfers."
Cons: "During meal times they didn't ask the person ahead of me to put their seat up which made it difficult to eat. They also ran out of quite a few meal options on the various flights I took."

Cons: "Denver airport policy kept us on the ground for about an hour because of lightning somewhere that was supposedly heading towards the airport but never showed up. The crew did what they could for the comfort of the passengers - gave out A water & A snack (except really turning on the air conditioning)."

Cons: "Plane is cramped!"

Pros: "The captain kept us informed about a delay."
Cons: "The seats are cramped"

Pros: "Timely departure and arrival!!"
Cons: "Immigration at O'Hare was good and speedy, transfer from another era (long lines for shuttles, cumbersome drive to other terminal, long security lines). Will try to avoid layovers there in future if possible. UA plane was ridiculously tight after the Swiss Air experience."

Cons: "More food for the second meal. Some deserts would be nice."

Pros: "Good pilots"
Cons: "Service is dismal and run down interior. Rips in seats. Lags way behind Asian or certain European airlines"

Pros: "Entire crew members, food, hospitality & aircraft !!"
Cons: "I couldn’t get my aisle seat & missing my Hindi movies.."

Cons: "Delay killed my travel plans and resulted in a nine hour layover in Munich Germany!"

Pros: "Good flight, nice staff."
Cons: "Food not the greatest and flight over-crowded."

Pros: "Crew & flight attendants very courteous and apologetic; complisnacks while waiting for delayed flight"
Cons: "Flight delay!!"

Pros: "Crew was phenomenal!!!! So attentive and professional. Great customer service"

Pros: "Flight was fine"
Cons: "Please don't board us and then proceed to make us wait on the plane for an additional two hours. The flight is onnly 80 minutes... and we waited in our seats with no entertainment or services for two hours. Please do not board passengers when you know that we won't be able to take off -- that's ridiculous!"

Cons: "The temperature on the plane was cool."

Cons: "United has a 2 hour delay for mechanical issue. We almost missed our connection to Zurich. Our bags did not make it and we are still waiting for our luggage"

Pros: "Everything was as planned"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "United flight left without me! I was there in time...45 minutes early... but sitting in another one of their planes waiting to get off the connecting flight!"
Cons: "See above"

Pros: "The roominess of the plane. Awesome."

Pros: "Overall service at was very satisfactory on all the sectors. In-flight service was excellent. Lounges were good at Mumbai and Frankfurt. Pl. see my comments about United lounge at Chicago."
Cons: "I was denied an entry to the UNITED LOUNGE at Chicago Air port. The lady stated that this lounge is only for the departing passengers! She scanned my boarding card.and I said to her that I am departing to Detroit. She said I can enter if I am a GOLD card member or purchase a day pass for $59.00. I declined. I am under the impression that United is a partner of Lufthansa.and that they should honor the same Business class privileges as Lufthansa. I found it rather discriminatory act on the part of this particular employee of the United lounge at Chicago airport. Pl. bring it to the attention of the Lufthansa and United . I will appreciate follow up on this matter."

Pros: "The plane, crew and boarding was great, and the food and drinks were quite good. Legroom in standard economy class was passable for a 6'2" person."
Cons: "I booked through the United website as trip from US, have Silver status on United, and Lufthansa's policies of not allowing advance (1-2 mo before flight) seat selection (never on UA nor LH websites) are just horrible. Hard to get through on 800 number, and 1 day before trip answer was still to do it in Frankfurt. Economy plus was $1000 more/person, and even then no guarantee I could choose a seat far in advance. Then, at computer kiosk in Frankfurt, they had a wrong diagram of the plane,as we ended up on what turned out to be a no-recline row which I would never get. I'm 6'2", 230lbs, and wasn't able to sleep on that flight. Had I been able to reserve a seat behind a bulkhead or in exit row 2mos in advance, I would have been fine."

Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "It was a short flight. Didn’t dislike anything other than paying for TV/movies."

Pros: "On time. Very nice flight attendants."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "I’m still in Lincoln every united flight other than those our of Chicago have been delayed by 5-7 hrs and or canceled it’s been the worst trip iv ever taken"
Cons: "I’m still in Lincoln every united flight other than those our of Chicago have been delayed by 5-7 hrs and or canceled it’s been the worst trip iv ever taken"

Pros: "I was moved up from Row 25 to row 9"
Cons: "Price to watch a movie was 7.99"

Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Some travelers was not good."

Pros: "Nothing, will avoid this airline in the future"

Pros: "Cheap tix"

Pros: "Nothing whatsoever"
Cons: "The personnel was very rude. They charged me for my Service Dog which is illegal. Personnel yelled at me for having my service dog with me in the seat. They changed our seats, even though we picked them when buying them for a reason and my boyfriend and I ended up sitting in different lanes. Horrible experience. Landing and take off of the plane felt horrible. They double charged for one service dog. Even though I provided the Dr's note and her service dog tag."

Pros: "The crew at the gate and on the plane were very pleasant."
Cons: "The flight was greatly delayed making for an extraordinarily long travel day. It seems that almost every time I travel on United, there are delays and problems."

Pros: "The flight landed ahead of schedule."
Cons: "I had to pay $75 extra because I redeemed miles for my trip and it was purchased around 20 days before the trip. Ridiculous, their customer service is the worst, and their fees are ridiculous too and the service is the worst. Their CEO and upper management need to be changed, and they need to become passenger focused like Southwest."

Pros: "Quick hop to San Fran"
Cons: "Such a tiny plane! Carryons have to go in the hold. Any delay and you will miss your connection. Best is to check all luggage through and only bring an under seat bag on board."

Pros: "Coffee and snack. Was pleasantly surprised to have drink service on a 40 minute flight. Flight attendants were gracious and pleasant."
Cons: "Nothing. Had a great flight."

Cons: "Over an hr late departing :-("

Cons: "Flight was a little rocky on landing"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Several different delays for unknown reasons."

Cons: "We were 3 hrs delayed getting out of RDU because a 'test button' wasn't working. Missed my original connecting flight and the two connecting flights they had me on standby for. got to ohare, the united customer 'service' rep said "there are no more flights to Madison today - I don't even have to look. If you want to get there today, you need to go get on the bus". They didn't even offer to pay for the bus ticket ! Just rude and no customer 'service' at all !"

Pros: "The plane was more technologically advanced than others."
Cons: "There was a delay in takeoffs and landing."

Pros: "fast"
Cons: "n/a"

Pros: "Staff and the pilot got us to our destination safely and with out complications."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Easy quick boarding - attendants seemed to watch and keep the misc items from going into the overhead."
Cons: "Being woken up to see if I wanted water or food"

Pros: "fast smooth safe trip"
Cons: "They ran out of food, didn't get any snacks, which were pretzels, I would prefer peanuts like in the old days."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable. I passed out so couldn't take advantage of the food and entertainment. Nevertheless, I was comfortable enough to take a snooze. Despite the turbulence, Captain remained in control and ensured smooth safe travel."
Cons: "Sitting in the middle. And the bright light from the TV kept turning on because I would lay my arms on the arm rest. Also, airline attendants were not friendly. Maybe, they too needed to take a quick snooze."

Pros: "Boarding I guess was good. Flight was on time and arrived early in San Francisco."
Cons: "This was not a Luftansa flight, it was United. The crew was okay, but were not very good with putting any effort in for the passengers. The entertainment systems were clunky, slow and unresponsive. They looked old and/or just poorly designed or implemented. Could have just been cheap? Mine froze during the flight and never worked after that. The food was some of the worst I've ever had on a flight. Don't choose the vegetarian option unless you want an upset stomach. Seats were cramped and uncomfortable, but at least we got a clean blanket. They kept the plane cold for some unknown reason, so we needed it."

Pros: "Crew was courteous and professional"
Cons: "Like all airlines, need to expand leg room and chair size"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Food quality"

Pros: "Crew was nice. Lots of selection for movies."
Cons: "Drink service was so slow. Literally had to beg for drinks"

Pros: "The crew worked furiously to get everyone her drink & snack. Boarding sequence was orderly."
Cons: "Most of the time, the weak link is in check-in. For CLE-ORD, too many huge personal bags & carry-ons slipped thru the process resulting in takeoff delay as the staff checked for overhead cabin space back & forth. Inside the jet, the crew had to look for cabin space, rearrange ridiculously large bags...in order to fit my backpack. More delay. Some "personal" items were larger than most carryons."

Pros: "Great overall leg of the flight"
Cons: "No one working the ticket counter at check in for questions. Obviously understaffed!"

Pros: "Cookies were very tasty."
Cons: "Seat would not recline."

Cons: "1 hour late - "mechanical problem...""

Cons: "The entertainment console doesn’t work"

Pros: "Crew were extremely professional"
Cons: "The seats were less comfortable for me"

Pros: "The food!! The flight was in time and also the flight attendant were so available and caring"
Cons: "I have wifi in board for an hour for whatsapp messaging I would have beloved to have it all flight"

Cons: "Ethipian Airlines overbooked my return flight and did not offer me an alternate return flight so I could return on my designated date. They instructed me to come back the following date to fly. I was not compensated nor offered at the very least an apology. The ticketing staff was unprofessional and attempted to blame me for not flying. Do not fly Ethiopian Airlines out of Accra ever!!!"

Pros: "seat not comfortable"
Cons: "more drinks along the way"

Pros: "crew good. seat base was not soft nor comfortable."
Cons: "have crew offer drinks more often throughout the flight. every passenger gets dehydrated and needs more drinks. I had to go to the back and get drinks myself."

Pros: "Very conformable and quiet."
Cons: "Nothing very nice flight."

Pros: "crammed seats, meh food first experience with ethiopian, wasn't great"

Pros: "The crew were ok but took ages to help you"
Cons: "faster service in the plane"

Pros: "It was perfect to me , im in so much pain spiritually and you guys makes me feel home."
Cons: "Everything was good"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I was overbooked in Addis"

Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Staff needs to be briefed on what an insulin pump is."

Cons: "We are stuck at the airport because Ethiopian Airlines sent out false and miseading update stating that it’s flight was leaving at 6 PM as opposed to the scheduled 7:30 AM. Because of that no one showed up for the flight and there are no direct flights tomorrow that they would put us on! My father recently had a heart attack and this is causing him immense suffering! Additionally patient with emergencies are waiting to see my husband tomorrow and Tuesday but will not be able to because he stuck at the airport! They are refusing to put us on an airline us direct flight tomorrow! Also we have spent at least seven hours on the phone and misleading (and that’s to put it kindly) statements have been told."

Pros: "Crew were nice"
Cons: "Always delaying, catastrophic food."

Pros: "Attendants were courteous and the spacing is better than some airlines, but that’s about it."
Cons: "Check in was a disaster: no logical control of 100s of people; delayed on the tarmac for 1:45 for a “minor technical reason” that apparently had nothing to do with the actual operation of the plane that prevented me from making my next flight. Food was terrible. Flight attendants could have been more helpful about my missed connection."

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"
Cons: "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"

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

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

Cons: "They didn’t announce when boarding started/what zones were to go."

Pros: "Nightmare , I am separated from my baggage since 28/Feb. until now and the airline is incapable of providing the real status of my baggage."

Cons: "The whole thing was a disaster. I lost my connection flight due to incompetence from the Ethiopian airlines representative"

Cons: "The crew on the ground could be more friendly and could improve their communication. Improvement needed on the food."

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

Pros: "Everything Kosher food was excellent"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The crew where very pleasant, The service on the plane was good you had a choice of what meal you would like to have you also had a choice of any movie or entertainment that you would like to see or play there was more leg space and much more comfortable seating"
Cons: "I can’t fault anything on this flight."

Pros: "The friendliness and willingness to assist passengers when they notice one facing a challenge"
Cons: "The chairs in economy do not give sufficient leg room especially for tall persons, this would present a challenge on long haul"

Cons: "My phone was stolen on airport premises"

Pros: "the air craft was very good and the comfort is good no complain..."
Cons: "i did'n't like some of the cabin crew the way they are ....and am very disappointed from kinshasa to my check in i did ask a lady about my bag, she told me i will get my bag to cape straight, and i did ask her two times about the bag, she keep saying the same thing i will get my bag to cape town, so until now i haven't find my bag yet, the number they gave me from the airport no body pic up the phone, so i don't know what i can i do to get my bag......if you can hep me in this mater please contact me on my email or on my cell number 0027 78 470 6195. thank you your best regards."

Pros: "Great crew, decent food"

Pros: "evry thing"
Cons: "no thing"

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: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "aircraft was nice and well kept, and crew friendly."
Cons: "too many announcements on PA (information could have been summarized and delivered in the beginning, so that those who prefer to sleep can)."

Pros: "Fabulous. On time departure, 15 min early arrival into Addis. Service was outstanding"
Cons: "About time they introduced WiFi on flights"

Cons: "The flight schedule was changed and despite contacting Ethiopian multiple times, they did not comprehend the problem. I was scheduled from Dar to Blantyre to Lilongwe then to Blantyre AGAIN, my obvious final destination. Luckily the crew at Malawian Airlines allowed me off the plane early and edited my booking for the return journey efficiently and easily."

Cons: "Seats were dirty"

Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "New aircraft with automatic flushing toilets!"

Pros: "The crew very kind and made me feel comfortable"
Cons: "Old 767, with not comfortable set up and no individual TV set."

Pros: "The food and the crew were nice. The entertainment would go in and out, with the buttons malfunctioning at times."
Cons: "Started boarding 4 hours after scheduled departure. Though there was bad weather, our departure was still delayed way past the "adverse weather" conditions at the airport.
