Boarding was orderly, staff at the counter were friendly and so as most of the staff in the flight. Room for some improvement in entertainment, but overall very good flight.
Same as the flight to Doha. Very uncomfortable seats. No leg space
Cons: "No toilet available at gate due to enhanced security measures when flying to the USA."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. One of the onboarding staff was exceptional. Some onboarding staffs were unfriendly."
Cons: "Not allowing a laptop bag unlike Etihad, Emirates and other airlines was a bummer."
Pros: "The “mini-refrigerator” for beverage storage at the business class seat."
Cons: "The portion of the Arabic language expression on the live flight mapping software should have been minimized."
Pros: "The seat was ok and the food was good."
Cons: "Though the staff was friendly, I found them a bit unhelpful. I was literally holding three bags and a toddler in my arms, and passed at least three airline crew members. However, not one of them even bothered offering for help. I don’t expect that from a world class airline."
Pros: "Short 4 hour flight, full - not one open seat Yet, the crew was super nice and efficient."
Pros: "Nice new plane. Good seats. Good seat space between you and person in front of you."
Pros: "We felt home every thing was comfortable from A to Z- unforgettable trip"
Pros: "Nice touches like the giddy bag of toiletries and air freshener in the bathroom. I appreciated the multiple food offers"
Cons: "I would like more healthy food sides likes vegetables. There were a lot of carbs"
Liked check in process To improve: food and beverages. Not second round was offered and meal had no salad.
Very unprofessional staff in the checking and boarding. There was no space for my carry-on bag, which is understandable for a full flight. However, the rudeness in answering my questions about my bag were unnecessary. Shaming and threatening a passenger to be left behind was something I had never experienced (I am 57 years old and a Skymiles member) before. At a minimum, the boarding staff (Krystal Mejia and her manager Dee) should undergo further training on cultural sensitivity and professional skills on speaking with passengers. Krystal, just because I have dark hair and “look Latina” does not mean I can speak Spanish. Your assumption and threatening words until the very ending of my boarding (door of the airplane) were not only unnecessary and stressful but something that a passenger should not experience before boarding.
Pros: "The variety on the LATAM Play."
Cons: "There was no vegetarian food. I do not eat meat and the only available sandwich had ham. Having an only cheese option is not that expensive or complicated..."
Pros: "The seat assigned"
Cons: "Not having to pay so much for a carry on luggage"
Cons: "The crew were more concerned with having their lunch than taking care of customers"
Pros: "The pilots were polite and arrived early at destination."
Cons: "Could provide a menu card, like every other airline. Instead of listing every single option to everyone on the plane. And maybe use bigger cups that hold more than 3-4 ounces?? Especially when the airport takes away peoples liquids (see below). Ridiculous. Not necessarily with flight, more with Lima airport “security” - they took away ALL bottled liquids more than 3 oz. AT THE GATE. Even bottled water purchased 20 feet from the gate. And they couldn’t explain why. Just got a bunch of shrugs. Why take sealed water purchased at their own airport away before an international 8+ hour flight???"
Cons: "Low cost, no frills, but on time. It's what we want and they delivered that today."
Pros: "the good treatment of the staff"
Cons: "the flight schedule at dawn is usually a bit tired"
Pros: "Had to pay extra for my luggage I was only allowed one when it was always two."
Cons: "Having more student deals."
Pros: "Airport (AEP) was nice, plane and crew were good."
Cons: "The only problem was that our flight moved 50 minutes earlier and we didn’t get any email notification from kayak. But that may not be latam fault."
Pros: "The crew was great. Food was not bad either"
Cons: "Not so comfortable. SAA needs to upgrade- seats and technology. It feels tight and crowded. You can’t even charge your phone"
Cons: "I am tall, and I did not have a favorable seat. Many think all tall people like the aisle seat"
Pros: "Professionalism of SA crew"
Cons: "Abidjan airport is a mess and mediocre.,..very unprofessional and frustrates commuters a lot."
Cons: "The food was bland and they didn’t have enough of each option. For one meal I couldn’t get what I requested and just barely got it for the second one."
Pros: "Good leg room, pleasant stuff except for one exception"
Cons: "Terrible entertainment. Unresponsive cabin crew member to fact that the whole right hand aisle of the plane had no overhead lights or entertainment that worked. She merely told people she had rebooted three times and there was nothing else to do. No apology. Headphones were faulty on both outgoing and returning flights."
Pros: "The flight attendants were great."
Cons: "Lusaka only has one gate and this flight boarded simultaneously with an Ethiopian Airways 777 and Emirates 777. The staff responsible for boarding seemed more confused than the passengers. The food portions are very skimpy. The inflight entertainment consisted of some random video about F1 racing rebranding."
Cons: "A few passengers were really disruptive and loud but that’s not the airlines fault"
Pros: "Staff were friendly"
Cons: "Entertainment was terrible - kept breaking and sound was bad. Person behind me had Tourette’s and spoke and laughed and yelled all night. No sleep."
Pros: "It was a direct, non stop to Joburg."
Cons: "Pay extra for exit seat row but TV was not working and this is a 15 hours flight. Order vegetarian meal but did not got it. The boarding was very disorganized."
Pros: "We landed."
Cons: "This flight was on South African Air but under the auspices of United. The was business class on an Air Bus 330+xxx. It's a small, cramped plane. The seats have a limited set of controls --no control for just moving the back or moving the seat forward. The worst part was when the seat was flat out. Your feet keep getting pushed deeper and deeper into a narrow hole. Once in there you aren't able to move them. You can't raise your knees. For a side sleeper you have to keep your feet from going into the hole as you put the seat flat out. The attendants were not friendly and did the minimum required. Also there weren't as many attendants as on other airlines. There was a large selection of movies but not many that I wanted to see."
Cons: "It was over booked. I wasted my precious time in the airport for half day... and the staff of ethiopian were not kindness."
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable and generally this flight is comfy"
Cons: "The queue during boarding is very long, they need to add counters"
Pros: "Way more leg room than I expected. The crew was very nice, the announcements were made in 3 languages, which was nice for the non-Amharic speakers!"
Cons: "Boarding in Lomé took a long time, which I believe made us a little later at the airport. Not sure if that is something fixable or not"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive, although it did help I was the only passenger in business and the food was definitely better than expected and an improvement on last time I flew with them, around a year ago."
Cons: "The cabin was looking a little tired."
Cons: "Crews could have greet and serve passengers with a warm smile. Food was acceptable but not as good as Japan / Korean airlines . I suppose the low airfares reflect its Servicr."
Cons: "1. Make duty free shopping possible. My daughter, that I was traveling withl, loved some jewellery l wanted to buy for her but it was not possible because a credit card purchase was impossible. 2. Provide entertainment on board. Flight from Lusaka to Addis was excellent. But nothing to Nairobi"
Pros: "The plane was spacious"
Cons: "-The flight entertainment wasn't working -There was a delay, but no one from the airline communicated; we were just waiting and the waiting area didn't have sits"
Pros: "I was a bit hesitant to fly Ethiopian Air for such a long flight (Dublin to LAX) however it turned out to be the best leg of multi-segment trip (all other flights were Aer Lingus or Delta and Ethiopian Air was far superior to both of those carriers). Flight attendants were friendly, the physical space was comfortable and spacious, the food was plentiful and delicious. Movies offered were relatively new and the IFE worked well. This flight is a continuation from Addis Ababa to LAX so when we boraded in Dublin most people were already onboard. It was a bit difficult to find space in the overhead bins but with a little rearranging of smaller packages by other passengers, we were able to fit our carry-ons in the overhead bin near our seats."
Pros: "Will never fly this airline again"
Cons: "The food was bad and on the second stretch the airline did a stop over in Cairo that was not originally planned and delayed the flight by over 3 hours making me miss my connection flights and forcing me to rebuy tickets since there was no ground staff at Rome that could handle the situation. Made me end up losing 1000 usd in tickets I had to buy. Not the way I'm used to be treated as a business class costumer"
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."
Short lay-overs and total flight times. Everything else could have been better.
Pros: "Leg space was great and bathrooms were wider than usual."
Cons: "The entertainment center was falling, the touch screen was not working well, and the movies were all very outdated. There was no USB charger."
Pros: "Punctuality of the flight and the pilots did an amazing job"
Cons: "There was not in flight entertainment few broken handsets, broken seats"
Cons: "Old plane with no entertainment. The flight was schedule for 7:10pm then changed to 8:20pm then changed again to 11:50pm."
Pros: "The flight was really cheap. Although you get what you pay for. My seat didn’t have entertainment working. This is not the first time that it happens and the crew only look at your face and say sorry. Doesn’t do anything about it."
Cons: "Entertainment working, better food, not allowing passengers with 3 big luggages as carry on."
Cons: "Planes need to be better maintained especially the in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Nothing- dirty, old craft, your seat - someone is seating on your seat, and you need to find another seat"
Cons: "The plane delayed for more than 2h30min and explanation for it. I informed the crew I have diabetes and needed water/food. No answer, they attended me and heard my concerns when they were informed by a friend I was with "Hypoglycemia." I had vomit and a bad trip. I will think twice before doing it again!"
Pros: "Spacious ,new planes . Friendly crew . Great value for a relatively cheaper flight than other airlines ."
Cons: "Entertainment system lacked content , they should consider loading a greater variety even if it is older content . Food was decent but received some rock hard rolls and crossiants."
Pros: "The plane from Capetown to Luanda was a slightly older refurbished plane which meant more leg room which was really nice . The food was good and service friendly."
Cons: "The entertainment system had very limited preloaded content."
