Very bad management of carry on baggage. I don’t care how many check in they allow compared to other airlines but they are worse for carry on piece…… never going to repeat this airline in future

Very bad management of carry on baggage. I don’t care how many check in they allow compared to other airlines but they are worse for carry on piece…… never going to repeat this airline in future

Luggage service

They ran out of food.

Even kind of urgency crew were not responding. I have asked water 3 times , I never got a glass of water. Eventually I was kind of pass out and then myself walked up to crew place and a got a water. Crew were very bad from SFO to Doha. Same time crew were very good from Doha to B’lore

it was worst experience ever , customer services also worst ,

The food and beverage selection and service were excellent to outstanding. Transfers / transfer desk /security checks at check-in was quite chaotic.

Airport staff are good but no signage to help incoming passengers unless you know the airport in Doha.

Transfer in Doha was not easy. We didn’t have any breathing room and we had to rush. We had to a bus for transfer and another bus to board the connecting flight to Chennai. That was bad approach and difficult for older people to climb the steps.

The gluten free meal was excellent

Food sucked

Literally spit several of the food items out rather than eat them. Utterly revolting . Worst meals I’ve ever had on Qatar airways. Seats cramped and uncomfortable. Headsets were nasty hollow sound making it unpleasant to watch movies and had to use high volune just to hear at all.

Wonderful. Thanks.

Crew and service was excellent. Qatar Airways uses Air France business lounge in SFO. Lounge was congested with very little available seating when we entered the lounge. SFO airport seating was far better than what was available in the lounge.

They told us our family of five couldn’t fly because our Covid tests weren’t at the correct time. After it was elevated to the fourth level, someone actually did the math like we did, and they realized we were right and let us on the flight. This made the experience extremely stressful and frustrating. The employees and especially the flight crew were nice, but not having their info straight tainted the trip. I know these are very challenging times for airlines as they navigate all the different restrictions from different countries, but something as simple as the test cutoff time for a 48 or 72 hour lead time for a scheduled flight ought to be easy to have ready beforehand. After all that drama, there was no “Sorry about that” or perk of any kind. Good lesson for us to make sure we have our facts straight before torpedoing somebody.

The flight attendant from SFO to Doha was amazing and so eager to serve

I had a horrible experience booking tickets in kayak. Got cancelled the last minute and had to give a hefty price. No customer support as well.

The crew is horrible. Especially at the ticketing and checking counter. Very irresponsible, lazy and no emphathy.

The staff tried to get me to take medicines that I could not read for nauseous but I would not. They said they were prescribed by a doctor! What doctor. The flight was the longest worst ever! 14 hours - nothing to eat or drink! In addition, the head flight attendant said the baggage compartment over my head was a problem as it opens all the way down and bags fall easily out. The bag was easily 30 pounds and landed directly on my head. I suffered a concussion."

Cons: "Long flight on a 777-200. Crowded aircraft, crew not very attentive to call light, and food mediocre at best. Entertainment service was horrible, old movies and typical Qatar Airline selection of Bollywood films (Expected when flying from Doha, but not New Zealand!) Seat would not recline, but no option to move to another isle seat."
Pros: "Quality of foods and service"
Pros: "The usual customer care, from checking in to leaving the plane, second to none. Food choice and quality excellent."

Cons: "Space between seats were smaller"
Cons: "It was not at all a smooth travel experience. The original flight was from Mumbai to Doha to Los Angeles. After reaching Doha they said the flight is full !! They made me travel via Boston where it was so much hazzel to catch the next connecting flight. My bags did not come in the same flight. Next day I had to go to the airport again to bring them. I did not had anything to wear, I had to purchase basic stuff. It was a very inconvinient travel. I want compensation from Kayak as you guys confirmed my booking and I come to know at the Doha airport the flight is full. HOw did you issue me a ticket??"

Departure times were late

It was good trip👍

Pros: "I had to pay two tickets for same flight from Islamabad to San Francisco and going from San Francisco to Islamabad it’s been cancel and I am fighting for my money back they don’t want to refund it"
Cons: "I wish the 777 had slightly wider seats like the A380"

Pros: "Friendly cabin crew, new movies"
Cons: "Long wait after boarding before takeoff"
Pros: "Stewardesses were great"
Cons: "It took them 1.5hours to give me my luggage. Everyone else had left. They kept making me go back and forth saying it was coming but nothing. This had never happened before and was ridiculous given it was a direct flight"
Pros: "The a380 business class was the greatest flying experience I ever had. Second to NONE! Must try and book if possible. I fly a LOT and this was just absolutely amazing."
Cons: "Nothing really! Although they do run out of food options so sit as far in the front as possible."

Pros: "Smooth flight. Attentive crew. Good entertainment options"
Cons: "The toilet had no toilet paper so I used the paper hand towel and prayed it did not block when I flushed. The beef option was not that great. I should've chosen the chicken."
Pros: "Horrible experience!!!!"
Cons: "1. Emirates has only one piece option. With Laptop bag weighing about almost 5kgs, you are left with just 2kgs which the carry bag itself would weigh. Not sure, how Emirates is getting away with this discriminatory attitude, while rest of airlines do allow -Carry on + a personal item. 2. There is no check on the carry-on weight at SFO airport. While in DXB, they entice customer to buy all duty free and then when it comes to boarding, you will be 'shocked'. No more than 10kg allowed. 3. You will be directed to read instructions before boarding. Then the corruption deal starts...read point 4 4. The man will say, remove anything in excess of 10kg or pay extra luggage, knowing very well, that people buy duty free at DXB. 5. Once you start negotiating, then the deal-making starts... 6. I managed it. More on Facebook review..."
Cons: "Seat bookings in just fly are messed up. Kayak took me to just fly for the bookings. The seats for the the 16hr+ flight on just fly we're window seats however at time of check-in I got middle seats in the center 4 seats. It was the worst flight booking experience on kayak so far."

Bad service, no attention paid to the flight attendant button, water provided after 45 min....after 2 fligh attendants came by and said they would bring water. i provided verbal feedback and they were extra nice to me then...brought me crackers , chiocolates...etc etc...but it was just to calm me down. I went and got my own food from the kitchen area as I had a splitting headache, I was traveling to india as my dad had passed away on sep 11th morning. They gave me the same dinner mushroom and peas for vegetarian snack. Then they exchanged it after I had waited for so long. IT was just ridiculous servide and"
Pros: "Crew v good"
Cons: "Food .. Fish undercooked ... Aircraft bit dated"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and food was good."
Pros: "Boarding, cabin crew. Entertainment, aircraft, everything was top notch."
Cons: "Food is outdated. Menu is not based on nutrition. The pizza served at end of flight is terrible. It should be replaced with a high protein snack. Food is tilted heavily towards carbohydrates and main entree is about 25 percent less than it should be. If the menu evolves a bit to include slightly larger portions, more fiber , protein, vitamins and minerals , it would be a true 5 star experience. Other than food, I rate this flight and experience 5 stars ."
Pros: "Excellent service, food and media."
Pros: "On time Large LCD in each seat back They kept the public announcements to a minimum"

Cons: "It was a long flight in coach."

Cons: "Turkish Airlines was delayed over an hour. It seems like slight delays do happen with this airline; however, you do get what you pay for and I can't really complain much over a one hour delay given the ticket price."

Pros: "Food was really good. Enjoyed every bit of it. Flight was on time."
Cons: "The Crew could have been more friendly, I was disappointed by the service of the crew."
Pros: "Sitting in a metal tube flying at 40,000 feet with 300 other personalities has its challenges. Turkish Airlines' staff managed this with excellent care. The smallest things begin to matter; the comfort of the aircraft, quality of food and drinks, the frequency and availability of service, and above all conveying the sense of safety. Every member of this company, from the staff at the counter to the flight attendants, to the pilot seem to really embrace customer service."

There is a decent selection of in flight entertainment but it freezes sometimes. Hold down the "power" and "home" buttons at the bottom of your screen to reset your console.

Work on entertainment systems and seat comfort. Seats are very old and worn out. Entertainment systems not working,

Cons: "Flight was delayed so many times, without reason given. On arrival in New Delhi, the airline lost my bag. Everything about this experience was really bad."
Cons: "The whole boarding process was a bit chaotic. I was really called on the plane. I tried to signal for a blanket or some food but there was only 2 cabin crew members."
Pros: "I liked the crew. They are kind."
Cons: "The boarding in Addis was an absolute nightmare. No one could figure out where to go and when. Mombasa and Nairobi flight boarding was mixed. I've never seen anything like this. There was not enough room in the boarding area so everyone was pushing and shoving. I can't recommend Ethiopian airways to anyone after this experience."
Pros: "Landing on time"
Cons: "Limited choice of food- no vegetarian options, only meat."
Pros: "Having never even heard of Ethiopian Airline, our expectations weren’t very high. We found the boarding process to work well. The staff was great and the meals were very good. The flights were on time and efficient."

Pros: "Good service in the plane"
Cons: "In Lomé ground crew are horrible and asking for bribes including the supervisor."
Cons: "I've been flying Ethiopian airlines over the last four weeks to nine African countries and can give an overall excellent rating. They're always on time. They however showed the same movie on all flights. The food quality and variety also need to be improved. Thanks"
Pros: "Nothing - decades behind other Airlines."
Cons: "Everything. Terrible old plane, bad food (made me violently ill), bole airport is depressingly bad and unorganised, boarding is like lucky dip... my seat was broken on the plane. It was an exit and still so uncomfortable. Never again..."
Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "The experience from the airport to the plane to Lome was beyond troubling. If ever you are flying internationally from NYC, never fly from Newark New Jersey. Nevertheless, upon boarding the Ethiopian Airline flight to Lome that was supposed to depart at 9:15 pm, the courtesy of the flight attendants was a bit mundane. My mother and I sat on the plane for about an hour after the time of the depart before inquiring why we have no moved and the doors were closed. The flight attendant responded with, "We shall be moving shortly." The air conditioner was barely on. My mother is battling stage 3 Cancer and is an older woman so, I feared for the safety of her health in such a condition. About 30 minutes passed, and we inquired again. This time with a different flight attendant and she said she just did not know what was going on. Other people on the plane began to panic in a sense as well because like my mother and I, they too had a connecting flight to catch. The pilot did not inform the passengers of what was occurring. So, at this point, all passengers on flight ET509 had been sitting on the plane for an hour and a half. By the time we were sitting on the plane for 2 HOURS with the doors closed the pilot finally informed us that they were waiting for some paperwork. He did not apologize or give more information as to why we were sitting on the plane so long, with practically no AC, and weren't informed about when we would be pulling off. About 10 minutes later, the plane began backing up while people were still standing because they were restless with the wait especially when we had a 10-hour flight ahead of us. The pilot then got on the loudspeaker stating that we will be pulling in the air shortly and for the flight attendants to be seated. The pilot did not apologize for the inconvenience or state how long the flight would be or what time we would land in Lome, Togo. Once we were in the air, there were many safety hazards administered by both the crew and pilot. The seat belt safety information was not given, the exit areas in case of emergency were not discussed, what to do in case of an emergency, where certain equipment would be in case of illness or an emergency, and we were still not informed about the cause of the 2 hours and 15-minute delay. My mother and I consistently checked the flight tracker and it did not show the duration of our flight, our location while flying, no flight information was displayed and as hard working paying passengers we should have had all of the information and not have to continuously ask to get a slight answer. Also, I am a vegan and they did not have food for me. But there was a flight attendant who gave me extra fruit which I greatly appreciated. The flight coming back to Newark was decent, going was the major issue. I pray we are accommodated for these great inconveniences. Because to have spent almost $3,000 and receive this type of treatment is both saddening and disturbing to me."

Cons: "Where is the famous Ethiopian arabica coffee?"
Pros: "nothing was exceptional"
Cons: "luggage did not arrive."
Cons: "At the Addis airport, it seems chaos reigns! My flight was never listed on any display to say what gate we departed from. A crowd of people boarding for two different planes just rushed the gate area. I’ve got no idea how everyone ended up on the right plane. My flight was never announced I had to keep going up to ask over and over. The bathrooms at the airport are unhygienic and the available food is abysmal. On the plane was better except that the only entertainment is over head screens that didn’t work my overnight flight was miserable as the lights were on the whole time and they repeatedly woke me up to eat throughout the flight. I’ll do what I can to avoid the Addis airport from now on."

Pros: "Very helpful, attentive and kind cabin staff. New aircraft !!!"

Pros: "Everything was great. The seats were comfortable. The crew was awesome! They provided us singular care and 10 hours flights did not seem too long! Entertainment was outstanding."
Cons: "My monitor/screen never worked; could never watch a movie despite asking the flight attendants to reset my screen several times. Pretty bad for this 10+ hour flight. I have had much better experiences with crew, staff, friendliness, responsiveness, etc, on almost every other airline."

Cons: "I found the staff to be very slow, on all 4 flights it tool them an extensive amount of time to walk down with drinks and food service. I was also sitting under the overhead that had blankets and they kept waking me up through out the flight when trying to get a blanket. I wanted to perches a watch that no all the flights had and when they did I couldn't ad ou don't take Credit Card. Flying from Israel to South Africa all I had was Shekel and Rands. How was I to know that I needed to carry Dollars On me."
