Food quality was very poor.

I was so happy and at ease with the crew 100 %the best ever

The best, Qatar Airways is incompatible

This flight was cancelled

Pros: "Great crew! Excellent business class suite"
Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Good"
Pros: "The cre was really nice and very attentive."
Cons: "The flight left the gate an hour late without giving us any explanation, I missed my connecting flight. The airline did offer a hotel to stay in, but no other apology or explanation was given to about 15 of us who missed a connecting flight."
Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Perfect"
Cons: "They do not understand the word priority at Doha airport. Business class passengers boarded last."
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: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "When a very large man is placed next to someone else who is in a middle seat and cannot use the arm rests on either side, I would think the hostesses would make an effort to move one of the three considering there were multiple other open seats. He was also very old and could hardly stand up when needed. It was the most uncomfortable flight, if I had the money, I would definitely fly business class"
Pros: "Food and leg room"
Cons: "All was fine"
Pros: "Yes very"
Cons: "Nothing"
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 customer service and food were excellent."
Cons: "Next time I will fly business class for more space and comfort."
Pros: "Great service, as always. Very comfortable flight."
Cons: "In flight WiFi is too expensive and unreliable. Compares very poorly to some competitors (free - in business - and fast on Turkish Airlines)"
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Excellent-18 hour flight but Qatar really looks after you. Crew amazing and food is pretty good."
Pros: "Flight attendant assigned to our area was very kind, welcomed us to the flight, and made us feel at home. Wish I had remembered her name."
Cons: "The boarding process was a bit out of the ordinary. We were invited to board then stood on the jet bridge then invited to come further down the jet bridge then waited for what no one knows. It was all very bizarre."
Pros: "I had a slight problem with my visa to the country of my final destination but the check in counter crew and management were very polite, helpful and most of all empathetic. Problem was resolved and, All's well that ends wel."
Pros: "In-flight crew was excellent."
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: "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: "Did not make this flight."
Cons: "Lost baggage maybe in Rome airport Conbecting flight qatar to vueling was worst"
Pros: "Faultless as per usual QA flights"
Cons: "Food service was poor; food trays were arranged in a sloppy way; in fact the tray that came to me was not clean at all. First meal service from Doha to Washington (IAD) took nearly 2.5 hours to reach my home after the service started. The male attendants were sloppy, not well organized. When asked why it takes so long, the answer I got: "We were not prepared to meet the customer's preferences." But that does not excuse the long delay in serving row 36."
Pros: "Overall a good service with good food."
Cons: "When flying from New Zealand to Doha, we departed Auckland at 15h25 and due to the time zone, most passengers body clocks would have been expecting sleep within a few hours. However we were flying West and thus into daylight. Sadly the window seated passengers were not asked to close their window blinds to block out the sunlight and many were left open. This made the cabin very bright and a difficult environment in which to sleep. Too much advertising before the on board videos, but otherwise content was good."
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: "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."
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: "Exceptional staff, nothing too much trouble. The aircraft is new and all facitlies great. Will fly with Qatar again"
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"
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"
Cons: "The food was okay. The hot wrap/calzone served first was not very tasteful. The breakfast/brunch was better. Not much to dislike overall."
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: "Large monitor and many choices of movies. Good food, efficient boarding."
Cons: "All connecting flights to US are pretty long flights (14-16 hrs) and I personally, don't want to travel and try to avoid taking those long flights."
Cons: "I have flown previously with Qatar and was not so impressed. Everything was great this trip up until my return to the United States. I should have suspected a problem when I was requested to change seat in order to assist a family who were in separate seats. Moving was difficult as the plane was being loaded. I managed to get to the seat offered to find someone sitting in it. To top it off the individual was wearing a surgical mask and carrying a large immigration bag. I requested a seat forward but I was denied and I later saw other passengers moved forward to seats that I was denied. If I had known that the flight would have been full of possibility sick immigrants I would have chosen another flight or airline. At certain times the smells were very bad. I felt as a ff member I should have been treated better or been made aware of possible health risks."
Pros: "Everything was great except the plane from Doha to Beirut it was too small with no seat screens and bad c music channels and non-comfortable seats !! :( otherwise everything was great !! I like Qatar airlines and don't hesitate to travel with them again Thank you"

Pros: "Helpful crew, good food, comfortable seat."
Cons: "flight was delayed for 40 min."
Pros: "The friendly crew provided slippers, sleep mask, mini tooth brushes & paste, socks & lip balm for each passenger which was very nice. The food was really decent for airplane food & they provided free alcohol beer or wine with both of the 2 meals. Each seat had a usb spot to charge your phone & a nice screen for watching movies & tv shows. Wish there were more movie & tv show options, only suggestion."
Pros: "The way flying was meant to be."
Cons: "More staff to ease boarding--a passenger tripped and was "run over" by other passengers"
Pros: "Convenient take off time. Arrived earlier for better connection."

Pros: "Besides the birth of my daughter, this trip to Italy through Istanbul was the greatest THING that I've experienced, EVER! My flight with Turkish Airlines was a HUGE part of that odyssey!"
Cons: "Because of my delayed flight from Atlanta, I missed my connecting flight from Turkey to Rome! So, in the future (yes I plan on flying through Turkish Airlines exclusively for international travel), I will book my flightts with a larger "gap" between flights! Otherwise....Turkish Airlines is PERFECTO!☺"
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "بغينا نموت"
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: "Flawless in every way"
Pros: "Food , sercive"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The variety of films on show was decent"

Pros: "Food, service, toiletries, entertainment"
Cons: "Airlines cancelled flights out of Rome and made several changes to our return flight which caused us to stay 22 hrs long layover in Istanbul. We had to make several long phone calls to ensure we can get the connecting flight from istanBill to San Francisco."

Our flight was canceled and had to stand in line for 3 hours and 11 minutes to get on a flight to Florence Italy for the same day. They couldn’t get us to Genoa for 36 hours and had to go through Rome no direct flight. We will be contacting customer service for compensation for a hotel stay in Florence and train tickets to reach our destination Genoa Italy.

The flight from Rome to Ams was delayed. The flight from AMS to Moscow was missed. - We spent 2h in a linewaiting for the service desk to rebook the tickets - Then, we spend more than an hour to get the hotel - Then waiting for the shuttle another 30 minutes Unexpectedly poor and slow service. The next working day is ruined with the flight in the middle

Pros: "Due to business I travel allot so I deal with allot of airlines. This is by far the best airlines I have used. Excellent crew and airport staff. I don’t think words can express how satisfied I am with this airlines and airport. The nicest people and great service. Clean and modern aircraft. Going to try flying only with KLM from now on."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Wifi on klm"
Cons: "A little bit chaotic when they loaded two planes at the same time in a very tight space in Amsterdsm but this was most likey an airport soecific design issue and not a KLM issue. The flight was as good as can be expected fir an international flight. The staff was great"
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "The time between flights."
Pros: "The pilot and the crews were helpful about the transit. Pilot make up a lot of time."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, had to run to my next connection flight."

Cons: "Too hot inside the aircraft"
Cons: "Flight 2 hours delayed, started boarding but had to wait on line 10 more minutes on boarding ramp for plane door to be opened, upon landing in Dublin had to wait on tarmac for anther 15 minutes for stairs to arrive and be connected to airplane. Then had to wait another hour for checked luggage...."
Pros: "The flight crew was so friendly and the food was really good."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic."
Cons: "This was the most narrow airplane seat I’ve ever experienced. So uncomfortable."
Pros: "KLM was a great experience compared to Airitalia. The food was good, the flight attendants were very helpful."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Security check at gate; No priority"
Cons: "Inflight was better than I expected. But needs upgrading air crafts."
Pros: "Smooth and faster than expected trip. I felt free to get up and walk around on this long flight. Food was good. I sat in seat with extra leg room for the first time and it was worth it"
Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "Seat a little cramped."
Cons: "Flight canceled, poor communication from the airline to the passengers. Møre than 5 hrs delay"
Pros: "Light snack and complementary wine"

Pros: "Flying with KLM is a pleasure"
Cons: "Services was pretty weird .. Perse or crew Leader was ok But the assistent Young one was Really bad.. aptitud and not friendly at all."
Pros: "Great on board service from a very professional crew."
Cons: "Can't think of a thing."
Cons: "Our total flight time was about 17 hours - MAD- AMS-LAX. My husband and I both have an internationally approved carry on luggages with us. When we checked in - they asked us to both check in our carry on luggage. The reason why is because they said they don’t think they have enough space for our carry ons. I told the crew member checking us in that other people that was checking in with the same hand carry size luggage with us had no problems taking it with them. For being about to be on a 17 HOUR FLIGHT we should be ALLOWED to have our carry ons with us! We take carry ons for that reason! I had to argue and prove my case to the crew member to atleast keep 1 carry on with us. I thought that was an UNACCEPTABLE reason for us to check in a carry on luggage when we had a 17 hour travel time ahead of us. Not a happy costumer here."
Cons: "The cabin crew was racist! She asked me to move from a seat because she wanted another guy ( obviously from her country ) to take it! Rude and racist."
Pros: "Smooth boarding, clean seats/plane, nice small aircraft (2 rows x 2 seats each), surprisingly spacious (more legroom than expected - and I’m 6’2”)."
Cons: "About 1h30min delay without an explanation. All other planes in the terminal seemed to take off on time without a problem, without exception (aside from this flight, of course)."
Pros: "Booked extra room seat which gave me good room for seating"
Pros: "Due to lightening bolt strike our pre-Y2K era plane got switched out with a newer plane with modern media delivery at the seats."
Cons: "This caused a two hour delay in boarding and another 30 minutes on the JFK T4 tarmac. Same crappy headphones so it wasn’t the"
Pros: "All cabin crew were courteous. Refreshments were light. Check stuff were helpful, they did devise that the flight was full and due to space hand luggage would prefer to be put in hold free of charge. We did not have any problem with this. Plane was clean."
Cons: "Service was a little slow going through the gate, it seemed to take a while for everyone to get on board."
Pros: "Bording was good and general flight ok"
Cons: "This airplane must be the oldest in the fleet. No USB, no charging, no touchscreen technology, no plugs, no bluetooth."
Pros: "Lovely staff, good food, great movies."
Pros: "Nice seats, comfortable."
Cons: "Again, no aisle seat for SkyTeam Gold member. Also, my baggage was lost. First bag arrived a day late, second after I had left Billund and it was six days before the bag with my clothes reached me. I was told I will have 100 euro credit for clothing, but in the winter and for 6 days, this was not even close to the amount I needed for clothing and necessities, to have my time here."
Pros: "The flight was very good, specially considering it was a daylight one. Staff was friendly and servicial. Tue food was above the industry's average."
Pros: "Flight crew was pleasant and attentive. Seats were comfortable for economy as well. We were allowed to check in extra baggage for free at check in which really helped since we would be catching a connecting flight in Amsterdam"
Pros: "Very little if any."
Cons: "Aircraft was not very clean,the staff seamed quite harsh at times when speaking to customers. The food was really quite poor but it was a short flight to be honest. Overall not as pleasant as the China Southern flights. I would not like to choose them again unless i had to."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight from Amsterdam was 2 hours late. Caused me to miss connection on train from London to Leeds which then cost me 124 pounds to rebook. No information was forthcoming at all at the airport and there were 3 different departure times given. Absolute chaos. The airline is a joke"
Pros: "The crew were just amazing, such lovely male stewards! They were helpful and friendly and generally wonderful."
Cons: "The entertainment was quite dated and didn't have new movies etc"
Pros: "Crew service"
Cons: "Flight delayed."
Pros: "staff hospitality, cleanness of the cabin and toilet and punctuality of the flight"
Cons: "lack of meal options"
Cons: "Flight delayed, had to take two more flights and was a four hour trip turned into a 12 hour, 4 countries trip"
Pros: "Comfortable flight to Amsterdam for vacation in UK. More meals than expected. Also wasn't expecting some of the comforts offered to "regular" class seats like eye masks, ear plugs, pillows and blankets. It was an overnight flight, so maybe that should have been expected, but I don't think we had those 4 years ago when traveling overseas."
Cons: "Nothing. This is filler text to meet min characters."
Pros: "Flight crew on flight from Amsterdam to Cape Town were probably the most friendly and enthusiastic I've experienced and no, they were not all young. The plane was spotless throughout the flight. They were always coming around with water and juice and they genuinely seemed to care about all the passengers. The Flight back crew were just the opposite. More like the old lazy farts you get on the American carriers or BA or QF long haul. Whoo have been there for the long haul and should have stopped ages ago."
Cons: "The Entertainment images on the screens promoted Beauty and the Beast, Batman Lego movie but neither were on the system! Food quality was rubbish"
Pros: "Good flight, we got a nice snack despite it being a short flight, the staff was great."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The space is no longer a respectful space. Paid 32 Euros for my seat, there was not enough space, the man beside me kept jabbing me on the ribs."
Cons: "Flight delayed ... Myself and three other colleagues didn't have our luggage show up from KLM flight from Amsterdam to Brussels...even though all of our luggage was labeled "priority". Once in customer service line, we looked and saw that many of the other passengers on our flight also never received their luggage. We estimated that 20-25% of the people on that flight did not receive their luggage as they were in line with us for the same problem. Hard to understand how so many pieces of luggage could have been overlooked and not loaded on our flight. Obviously there is a huge gap in their quality system to ensure mistakes like this are prevented."
Pros: "Good food, good entertainment system, comfortable seating."
Cons: "Only one toilet working in business class. A crew member told me that it was a decision to fly with only one toilet to ensure no delay. There was a disgusting stench of sewerage for the complete flight from Amsterdam to Johannesburg. This was in all likelihood due to the broken toilet on the left side."
Pros: "Flights left on time, arrived ahead of time. Seats comfortable. Baggage arrived quickly. No charge for wine/beer, although I do not imbibe when flying long distance. Food ok for airline food."
Cons: "Unable to pick seats in advance,, were assigned seats that did not recline for 11 hour flight. One bathroom not functioning. Very limited movie choices for inflight entertainment. Seat belts much shorter than other airlines, so very confining, unable to loosen to relax in any position other than sitting straight in seat. In Rome had to check in & go through security at Terminal 5 then get bussed to Terminal 3. Only airport where we had to take out all electronics, including converter plugs, headphones, etc, place in a flimsy clear plastic bag ( that broke ) to go through security. Line to check bags pretty slow for number of passengers. Glad we had plenty of time."

We’ve been border but waited 3 hours before pushback due to technical issues. Good can be improved, especially the hot meal.

Luggage handling. Arrived in Johannesburg without my luggage. Communication regarding lost luggage is basically non-existent.

A really excellent and comfortable experience. No wifi in my section of business class though - would have made it perfect.

Excellent flight

Pros: "Crew attentive. The delay was due to airport conditions in FCO, cannot be blamed on Air France."
Cons: "Food. For a 2-hour plus flight, from 11am to 1:30pm, we got 20gr pretzel sticks. This is ridiculous. Don't pretend you are not low-cost! Formerly, before the Joon failed (thank God) venture, Air France had real sandwiches around that time of the day on that line."
Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "Awoke to find ill man laying on floor in aisle next to me with oxygen. Shortly after... Passenger in seat near man on floor (diabetic but no one tells us anything) needs to lay across four seats with oxygen for heart issues for remainder of trip with staff and doctor on board nearby. Nevdr informed what was happening, never offered to move our seats or move iIl passengers. Glad all turned out ok. Could have given them more privacy and better informed other passengers."
Pros: "Great crew and entertainment. Terrible experience at CDG airport but that’s the airports fault."
Cons: "Kayak updated me that my flight would be late. It wasn't. Missed it had to pay $700"
Pros: "Not much, seats are super uncomfortable"
Cons: "Better code sharing with KLM"
Pros: "Incredible staff. Super polite"
Pros: "Great crew and prompt boarding."
Cons: "Airline food and close main cabin seating. Should offer upgraded meals, just like the extra seating space."
Pros: "great food, entertainment and seat comfort"
Cons: "nothing"
Cons: "It was great trip thank you Air France"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by at least an hour leaving Paris - a regular situation I experienced with AF."
Pros: "Most of the crew tired especially hard to keep everyone comfortable and safe. The food was absolutely amazing."
Cons: "Other members of the crew were snarky to passengers and dismissive of questions from passengers during the early stages of the delay. We were all trapped on board for about 4 or so hours without much communication from the crew or captain which made me very anxious. We arrived 5 hrs late and it put my whole trip in jeopardy. Based on this experience, I eont be inclined to use this airline again for future trip planning. This airline will need to work hard to earn my trust back because i felt physically and emotionally unsafe throughout the experience, many times."
Pros: "Cheap ticket"
Cons: "The fact that you cheapskates don't allow credit or refund is downright usury. I didn't take that flight because of medical issues that caused me to cancel my trip 2 weeks in advance. I pleaded with you to be able to take a credit, to no avail. You lost a customer."
Cons: "The food was cold. We were served about 40 minutes after most of the plane got their food. The overhead compartments kept opening by themselves through out the flight. Food was horrible."
Pros: "Good size plane. It didn’t end up being full so there was plenty of room to move around. Quick flight and easy."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
Cons: "Told us to get in line for boarding and review our tickets and then made us stand there for 75 minutes before boarding."
Pros: "Boarding this large plane went relatively quickly and orderly."
Cons: "Seats were tight and got a bit uncomfortable. This was a long flight. Could use a much better cushion."
Pros: "Good seat width Great movie selection Great food and drinks Nice and large A380"
Cons: "The interface of the screens seemed old Need to anticipate the needs of the customer better For example, they brought me my special meal first, but I had to wait 30 minutes later to get a drink to accompany it. The food was getting old. Did not see any newspaper/periodical selection. That would have been nice."
Pros: "Food was good. Crew nice and professional."
Cons: "Landing was not so smooth."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "1/ the transfer crew needed 50 mn to enter my son’s visa number in her computer and she almost let us miss our flight 2/ we were separated (party of 3, my son being 5 YEARS OLD) - how can they allow a boarding and expecting my 5 year old to do a 10 hours flight BY HIMSELF???? 3/ no kids menus, even if I had ordered it before 4/ food in general was very mediocre 5/ crew was unprofessional and they acted bored"
Pros: "Crew were pleasant most of the time"
Cons: "Boarding process is total chaos Took 40 mins to.check in at desk , pre ordered for wheelchair Never showed ...total zoo Beds advertised as lie flat bu they are NOT 180 degree flat , legs hang down - bad for circulation"
Pros: "Comfort, food and service are better than average."
Cons: "When stewardess opened overhead locker, something fell on my head."
Pros: "The food, entertainment, and service. Waited for me after almost missing my flight."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "People may think,that the delay of the flight has set my mood for this review but I can ensure it has most definitely not. With all the bad weather, I was already very happy to connect right on time in Paris. However, a long haul A380 flight with such a tight seat configurstion is almost embarrassing for an airline. The in flight entertainment is at a very poor level, not only with the screen being very small and outdated, many of the movies are only available in French and the international selection very limited. The food was not much of a delight, whereas the presentation was nice. However, in all the 7 h between the services, nobody came around with refreshments in a completely booked flight, neither was announced that a trolly would be set for self service in the galley. Lucky the ones who got up and found out about. In terms of amenities, again, the airline is lacking of originality and saves cost. Bottom line: you get from A to B, but there are so many better competitors in the market, which I shall definitely consider on my next travel."
Cons: "Its been a week. My trip has ended. I still do not have my bags. Terrible customer service."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Window pane was broken on my side and I couldn't shut it down. As it was a day flight the sun heated my skin badly"
Pros: "Good on a short flight"
Cons: "Paying for carry on due to weight limit. First time this ever happened!"
Pros: "1) USB charger and electric outlet 2) Availability of 2-across economy seats (for a price) 3) Vegetarian dinner option available and not too bad 4) Flight arrived on-time"
Cons: "1) No on-board wifi 2) Not much seating room - very thin 3) 45 minutes late taking off"
Pros: "Flight went smoothly"
Cons: "Flight left late The seats are small and crowded There are no entertainment options"
Pros: "Great food, pleasant crew."
Cons: "Comfort economy okis seats are wide, with good legroom, but did not recline and hard as a rock. Entertainment system hard to use, finding movies very tedious."
Cons: "The flight arrived late with no clear explanation as to why. Then there was no EU queue at immigration, so more time wasted."
Cons: "We tried to check our bags through Charles DeGaulle onto our connecting Air Canada flight and the agent refused to even discuss it. Pretty bad service."
Pros: "Best flight I've ever flown. Blankets and pillows provided with many options for movies."
Pros: "nice crew; excellent check in experience!"
Cons: "boarding in Riyadh is always a nightmare. and as many have noted, the seats are too close for the average size of many boarding in Riyadh"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Not enough room for legs. Small amounts of food. No entertainment."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "I was not given my original reserve seat and no reason was given"
Pros: "Pleasant staff."
Cons: "I sat next to an overweight lady and was incredibly uncomfortable my entire flight. There needs to be better regulation for overweight passengers to ensure that every passenger has enough room"
Pros: "Same as above, the crew was very friendly and the food was great."
Cons: "Seating was cramped and uncomfortable for a tall person."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The bag did not arrive. It stayed in Paris even though my first flight was on time. Connecting at CDG was a negative experience. Not enough time and unfriendly staff at the security check."
Pros: "there were problems getting the tickets issued in Rome. the worker at checkin kept us for 20 minutes without telling us what was going on. the flight left the gate on time, but then we sat for an hr before leaving. no information was given as to why the flight attendants were rude. after landing we sat for an hr on the runway waiting for a gate to be available."
Pros: "I have been Flying Blue platinum for six years in a row. I often wondered why I never got a complimentary upgrade... Well, I can no longer complain: I was very kindly invited to move across that curtain. Of course, in short haul (2-hours+) A321 flights, all seats are created equal, business or main cabin... But the attention was there, excellent service, and gourmet food too. The whole experience was great. I'll go on flying Air France with fewer regrets."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Courtesy staff excellent!"
Cons: "Console for gaming poked guy in front. Needed joystick"
Pros: "The crew was nice .."
Cons: "We were very late for take off. Don't understand why No USB plug. No charging spots. No video. No movie. No radio. No wifi."
Pros: "flight on time"
Pros: "Nothing whatsoever"
Cons: "The "Czech Airlines" flight I purchased was actually an Air France flight number. When I arrived later than planned but still within good time, which was my fault, I reported to the Czech Airlines check-in (D2). This is very, very far from the Air France check-in (A2). No person and no sign was at Czech Airlines gate saying to go to Air France instead. By the time I determined what to do by talking ro the airport information booth and I walked to Air France instead of Czech Airlines (at CDG airport this is 5 minutes walking very fast speed on conveyor belts.. perhaps more than half a kilometer), I was past the boarding time limit, but the flight had not yet left. Then I could not print the boaring pass because of the time. When I asked an Air France employee for help, he simply said "you cannot board" and stood there smugly. He must feel great being a 25 year old who can turn people away from international flights at his own discretion to completely ruin their day especially when the plane is still on the ground. I have not even explained yet about the similarly awful experience I had when I booked the next flight (Czech Airlines at 09:45) for a much higher price (118 euro) and was not told that this Czech Airlines flight is "really" a Czech Airline flight. After paying much more to a Czech Airline person, nobody informed me to stay at the Czech Airlines area (2D) so I naturally went back to Air France since I had already had so much trouble. When I arrived there, of course, they tell me to go back to Czech Airlines and now I was again late. Thank God that I was able to confront a random trolley man who Kew where the Czech Airlines people were and try tried very hard to get me to the plane even though the boarding time was over. All in all, this was the worst travel experience of my life. I have now wasted 40 more minutes of my approximately 2.5 days in Prague to tell you this. I hope you consider it."
Cons: "Flights are always delayed, boarding is a mess, CDG is awful. Avoid unless nothing else available"
Cons: "Did not inform me of the shut down of Nice airport that Monday night July 25 from 11:30 to 4:00. I was stranded in nice. I planned to take a taxi to have it take me around a nice at night to see the city. But lost that opportunity.. Then the next morning before boarding I got inquired by French police asking why did I stay in Nice over night. My suitcase locks was cut open and a special silver plated cup,handle,was broken in my suitcase."

Flew business class with Egypt Air. Didn't feel much of a business class experience aside from the fact that you can flatten your seat. The food was just okay-too salty overall, seat wasn't comfortable when put into bed position.

Staff were very nice and professional. 🙏. International/domestic recheck was very confusing

Cons: "egyptair flight 985 no space between sets no social distancing very bad not comfortable flight"
Pros: "We left on time, flight was smooth!"
Cons: "No problems, everything was fine."
Pros: "The only thing is good, they gave us a room for the missing flight which is because of them. Poor customer service, no communication, the flight is always late and you will miss your flight."
Cons: "Get organized and explain for the passengers why there is a delay."
Cons: "Flight was a little warm"
Cons: "The Business Class lounge was OK, but we were through late at night and there was very little hospitality offered"
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "Business class is very basic. Flatbed seats, but they are side by side, like economy. So if you have a window or center seat, you have to climb over someone to get out to use the bathroom. Very annoying, especially for the person being climbed over."
Cons: "75’ delay with no info One toilet out of order No safety checks by crew"
Pros: "The flight was on time, the crew was fine"
Cons: "The business class lounge was closed, they gave us $25 per person voucher, but no one store in the airport wanted to accept them. There were not enough seats available when we were waiting for boarding. Business class entertainment needs significant improvement."
Pros: "Flight durations were good."
Cons: "Better entertainment provided. Also got moved around to accommodate their colleagues, which I wasn’t too fond of being pushed to a middle seat."
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "The plane was old, the seats were uncomfortable with no adjustable headrest or flaps to hold your head from flopping. There was no personal entertainment screens on the back of the seats, only the small community one mounted on the roof. The sound for this was terribly unclear. 8 hour boring flight."
Cons: "The problem of unavailable variety of food at the plane"
Cons: "Take off on time. Seats are not comfortable."
Pros: "Nice experience except for the delay in Dubai."
Cons: "Any delay would have been nice. we really had to run a lot in El Cairo Airport in order to catch the conection flight to Madrid."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Bathrooms dirty"
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "Timing"
Pros: "Once on board fine..."
Cons: "Having to pass three security checks, nothing rude, but over the top."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "I am so grateful and appreciative towards the staff. My flight was delayed and therefore I was very late to the gate. They let me on the plane - a big thank you! I was also in such a rush that I dropped my passport holder and they picked it up and returned it to me. The food was surprisingly good too. The service during the flight was also very good."
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"
Pros: "Direct flight, nice crew and professional pilot, didn’t feel the plane touching the ground while landing"
Cons: "Definitely not cheap flight ;) Food is no good , bathrooms were not clean and flight crew refused to clean it !!!"
Pros: "Flight was on time and I appreciate that."
Pros: "On time .. that was the most important thing for us for the connecting flight... crew helpful... food very good ..."
Cons: "All in alll good experience"
Pros: "Entertainment selection was decent, I was especially impressed by the very wide variety of music to listen to. The crew were very friendly, helpful and attentive. The plane was clean and presentable, especially the lavatories. The seats were comfortable and the blankets provided worked well too."
Cons: "Food was bland and the chicken dish was dry and difficult to chew. Movie selection on the entertainment system was mediocre, with limited variety of films in general and especially limited variety in languages other than English and Arabic. A problem which I encountered on board was a big gap between the ventilation panel at the base of the wall and the flooring, through which the dessert of my meal fell and which presented the risk of losing further items. I hope this is fixed promptly."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The cabin service was excellent and attentive"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The cabin is spacious and comfortable"
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "For this trip, there were no individual screens. All customers had to watch the same movies for a 5 hour trip."
Pros: "Awesome"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Ran out of chicken meal"
Pros: "everyone was very friendly and very helpful I felt very safe and very comfortable the flight was fantastic and I plan to use Egypt Air again"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "People were smoking on the plane. How is that still a thing?! There were no smoking signs and yet the crew did nothing to stop them. Absolutely horrible flight."
Pros: "Crew was super nice and helpful. Flight schedule was on time."
Pros: "The crew was great. Very helpful and friendly."
Pros: "Inexpensive fair."
Cons: "Little interaction with crew"
Pros: "Thé smiling and helpful flight attendant"
Cons: "The kind of movie"
Cons: "Flight attendant not asking what i'd want like everyone else. Because i look different?!"
Pros: "The crew whas nice but smill od airplane whas very bad"
Cons: "Upgrade the airplanes"
Pros: "We had a 10 hour lay-over in Cairo and EgyptAIr shuttled us to an excellent hotel and provided lunch and dinner - all for free. This was most excellent and so much more pleasant than sitting at the airport!"
Cons: "If EgyptAir would distribute a little English sheet how the steps are, where to get the passports back (at the EgyptAir Counter in the main hall at the airport), which lines to go to (we didn't officially immigrate, but still had to go through immigration upon return, which wasn't clear). Maybe a word on legal boundaries of the status in Egypt - EgyptAir had the passport, can we go to the pyramids or not - would be useful, too."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delay 2 hours"
Pros: "Flight was punctual"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Comfortable red-eye flight to Johannesburg. Food very good and plentiful. Plane spacious and not crammed."
Pros: "It is the first time ever..... I rated anything perfect but this time is an exception ...."
Cons: "Nothing.... ouch it hurts to say this"
Pros: "Basic older plane. Got me to where I needed to be."
Cons: "Was late taking off. Poorly organized airport and gate."
Pros: "Fed us enough food, quality was on par with average airline; unlimited juice/water and easy to get/serve yourself any time. Staff pleasant. Bathrooms seemed to be regularly checked and tidied. No big problems."
Cons: "I was absolutely aghast at the trash left all over the floor by the passengers. Staff would just walk right over the garbage. Have to blame it on the passengers - it's a different culture no doubt."
Pros: "Entertainment was better than first leg"
Cons: "Attendant woke me up several times. Bag was destroyed when I picked it up."
Pros: "Accurate time of departure and landing. Excellent and generous service. Cheap price. 62 kg weight allowed. Comfortable business class."
Cons: "Nothing at all, except that the flight did not have wifi because of to the model of the plane. I suggest that Egyptair find some way to have wifi on its all flights."
