Cons: "Meals and toiletries"
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."

Pros: "I really enjoyed when the plane LANDED at my Destination!"
Cons: "1. The plane was hot. In the Middle East they don't turn on the AC whilst on the ground. They only turn it on when in the air?!?! 2. The food was basic! I ordered the Seafood and it had 3 overcooked shrimp and baked fish. Not tasty at all. The bread was hard as a rock! 3. Boarding was like a cattle call!! Kind of like Southwest Airlines! 4. The Takeoff, Cruise and Landing was NOT bad at all! 5. I guess being an American, it was FOOLISH of me to ask for Ginger Ale on this Egyptian Flight!! 6. When I landed in Cairo, it would have been helpful to know that while going through Customs, I would need to purchase a Egypt Entry Visa fee for $25.00, but since I didn't know that, I waited in line for 20 minutes ONLY to have the Customs agent tell me that I had to go purchase one, then get back I line for ANOTHER 20 minutes!!!!!!! UGGHHHHHH!! 7. I flew on an Airbus that didn't have plug in for your phones to charge (maybe that's just a Boeing thing)."

Pros: "The food was good"

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: "Great & Friendly Service"
Cons: "The quality of service and aircraft"
Pros: "Same coomment"
Pros: "Flight was punctual"
Pros: "Comfortable red-eye flight to Johannesburg. Food very good and plentiful. Plane spacious and not crammed."
Cons: "food in business class was cold , bread and cheese was very hard! Unable to eat"
Pros: "I had checked in online and went to drop my check in bags at the counter. There was no baggage drop line - only economy and business class. I went to business class and said that I had checked in online and want to drop my bags and they gladly accepted it"
Pros: "Nothing but the basics. It worked and was on time so no complaints."
Pros: "Pilots are excellent at smooth landing."
Cons: "To most Arabs, broadcasting a prayer before taking off is routine and goes without notice. To foreigners, it could initiate fear about the safety of the plane as it projects a need to rely on a super power to make it. It's cultural and could be misunderstood."
Pros: "Overall the flight was good. The boarding process became a bit hectic in Joburg and arriving in Cairo was a mess too. Our baggage took too long to arrive on the belt and people were still waiting for their luggage after I had gotten mine. No one from EgyptAir told us anything which confused us even more. Next time have more organization and communication with passengers."
Pros: "Entertainment was better than first leg"
Cons: "Attendant woke me up several times. Bag was destroyed when I picked it up."
Pros: "Arrived in time Cabine crew support Good service Arrival of baggage let us to leave Cairo airport early Very safe trip"
Cons: "Tack off was late Hand bagged (cabin baggage ) must be treated early at boarding counter not on board"
Pros: "Terrible food. Barely any entertainment in English at least."
Pros: "Close to on-time departures"
Cons: "The pilots smoked all during the flights and their polluted air was pumped into the main cabin. Then the flight attendants denied that they were smoking, saying that it was forbidden so it couldn't be happening! But I've had this experience on Tunis Air, too. Cabins reeking of cigarette smoke."
Pros: "Nothing much"
Cons: "Lack of entertainment! The screen attached to the chair was broken and no one bothered to see what was the problem!"
Cons: "The flight was booked with a stolen credit card and some how the passengers were not arrested!"
