Pros: "Everything about the trip was great excellent customer experience"
Cons: "If I got to sit in first class coz the plane was so empty haha"

Cons: "No gate for departure or arrival. No business class longe in Cape Town."

Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Everything. Firstly the flight was delayed, these things happen but nevertheless I end up missing my connecting Qatar flight to Belgrade, put into a horrible little hotel for 24hrs without my bag, no clothes or toiletries. At one point during the flight once everyone had their chairs reclined one hostess told me to not put mine so far back?!?! Then when asked well then person in front of me has to move theirs forward and her response no they don’t. Absolutely shocking. To think I wanted to upgrade to business class. I’m traveling the globe over the next year and thought let me try Qatar but never again with this type of service and how they treat their customers."

Cons: "Qatar airport duplicTe security check"

Pros: "Crew is amazing"
Cons: "The Entertainment screen wasn’t working"

Cons: "Nothing really."

Pros: "The crew was amazing."
Cons: "The customer service from Qatar Airways. No one communicates and it was very frustrating to deal with."

Pros: "Good movie selection, very friendly crew"

Pros: "The service and food."

Pros: "On business class, so service was extraordinary"

Pros: "The crew were excellent."
Cons: "There is nothing I didnt like"

Pros: "comfortable seats good service"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "I took advantage of the upgrade offer, and it was well worth it."
Cons: "Too many mosquitoes, but I'm not sure how they could have stopped them coming on board."

Pros: "Did not provide hotel even in a 10 hours lay over. The security personel does not know how to behave with passengers."

Pros: "Crew and food"
Cons: "It was a pretty old flight and had no tv in front! Huge disappointment. Probably they thought ppl flying from Doha to Colombo were ok with a low quality flight with no entertainment."

Pros: "Great service, on-time flights, very comfortable planes in excellent condition. Great value for flight cost, BOS-KTM, through DOH. I would fly again with them."
Cons: "Lots of mediocre movies to select from. Very slow deboarding in Doha onto buses."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "nothing"

Cons: "Food."

Pros: "Staff very friendly. Loved the adjustable headrest as I am shorter and this is the first time flying that my neck was so comfortable I didn't need my travel pillow! Food was excellent!"
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "The crew on my side of the cabin was very good."
Cons: "Not having available air for the center seats made our flight a truly awful experience. The older style seats are actually more comfortable for taller and larger people. My wife was virtually ignored by the male crew on her side of the aircraft."

Pros: "Flight was on time and departed as scheduled. Flight was comfortable and seats were decent. Would have liked a little bigger seats and more legroom in the economy seats"
Cons: "Food was not up to par and seats could have been a bit bigger for the economy bracket."

Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "I had to ask for everything. Crew members kept passing me by for food service and drink service even though I was awake. I had to tap/call them each time they passed by. It turned into a joke among me and the people sitting next to me. Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"

Cons: "Poor choice of inflight movies"

Cons: "It was all good"

Cons: "Plane configuration; seats were a bit cramped, knee space."

Pros: "Flight. Conections"
Cons: "Change flexibility, helpfulness"

Pros: "Nice and spacious aircraft."
Cons: "Some confusion on Hindu meal and vegetarian meals."

Cons: "I checked in a couple of hours after checkin open but unfortunately I could not get my preferred window seat, got a middle instead. But still the leg room would have been ok but the middle seat (second row behind the bilkhead row) had the front passenger's entertainment system arranged across the footwell, not sideways, so it completely blocked the footwell and prevented any stretching of the legs. I am a tall passenger and this caused much discomfort on the flight, I had to keep getting up to walk around. I also found the seat bottom quite uncomfortable (not enough padding I think), butnghis could have been made worse by the footwell issue. Regards Neil"

Cons: "The seat didn't have any inflight entertainment"

Pros: "The service during the flight was excellent, workers showed all kind of concern and care. Thank you."

Pros: "Lo mejor de estos vuelos es sin dudad el servicio del personal de vuelo, son muy amables y se esmeran en mantener cómodo a todo el mundo, te dan botellitas de agua, jugo, hielo, lo que pidas."

Pros: "On time, clean and joyful"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "The Chicago flight was more than hour late so had to miss my cincinnati connection. Had to wait for 4 hours at the airport to catch my next flight- making the long journey even longer. No priority lounge access provided to make up for the delay. Qatar never getting my business again."

Cons: "There was no water in the flight's restrooms"

Pros: "I forgot to specifically request a vegetarian meal, but was very happy to find out that Qatar had a vegetarian option for every meal/snack of the flight. I traveled from Miami to Doha."
Cons: "Not much to complain about, this airlines is consistently ranked above others in surveys. From my first time flying aboard Qatar, I was not unsatisfied."

Pros: "Crew was friendly. Flight left on time!!!!!! :)"
Cons: "Food was served too late. Unable to get a bottle of water as I was dehydrated."

Pros: "Very generous with drinks and water to prevent dehydration. Two very good meals. Professional and courteous crew. Some unoccupied seats allowed passengers to spread out."
Cons: "Plane was a little too warm."

Pros: "The staff was amazing! I started I get a headache- probably because of low blood sugar, and one of the attendant provided me with constant water, ginger ale, and chocolates. It was so sweet- she didn't have to make sure I was okay, but she chose to our the kindness of her heart!"
Cons: "The cramped quarters. I had a very tall person sit practically on my lap the entire flight, as he leaned his chair back the entire time. It left no room for me to use the table for my laptop. I was fortunate that no one sat next to me on my first flight, but for the second one I was not so lucky – so I couldn't work on my schoolwork."

Pros: "Qatar Airways is a nice airline and it's obvious they work on making your flight a pleasant experience with a lot of food, entertainment, etc"
Cons: "My flight was delayed 4 hours upon initially arriving to the airport. While it was important for me to be there when I found out this information because I needed to reschedule my connecting flightso due to the delay, this should not be required. Qatar Airways, knew the flight was going to be delayed at least 10 hours before they announced it. They should have already began the process of rescheduling connecting flights and figuring out problems before passengers arrive to the airport. I probably spent 45 minutes at the ticket counter working things out."

Pros: "Staff wonderful,"
Cons: "Entertainment system old, malfunctions"

Pros: "The services is very satisfied and every thig was excellent"
Cons: "No,comence"

Pros: "I liked nothing on this flight!"
Cons: "Very hard to believe that Qatar is described as a "world-class airline". I took a total of 4 flights on Qatar Airways in a 2-week span. First flight was from New York to Doha (not bad). Second flight was from Doha to Nairobi (not bad). Third flight was from Nairobi to Doha (not bad) and the fourth and final flight was from Doha to New York (unbearable!!!) My first issue with the Qatar Airways was a checked parcel not arriving at my destination. When we reached Nairobi, I was told my parcel that I had checked in New York, was still in New York. It was a card board tube of materials required for a work initiative at a Kenyan hospital. Returning to Nairobi airport several days later created a hassle that I won't soon forget! Now to describe the journey back to the United States. The flight from Doha to New York is the flight I want to focus on. The flight was extremely crowded and the conditions were absolutely deplorable! I cannot fathom how a self-proclaimed "world-class airline" could pack a plane that full and compound that with a 14 hour flight! I felt so badly for the airline staff. They were stretched so thin that they couldn't accommodate the passengers. There was garbage all over the plane and the bathrooms were filthy; garbage cans overflowing with waste and dirty diapers. There was an exceptionally high number of infants and children on this flight. I love children. I have 3 children myself. I felt terribly for the children AND adults on this flight because everyone was absolutely miserable. I never thought it could be possible for there to be 14+ hours of crying babies and children. It was absolutely maddening. The airline staff were so busy that they couldn't even assist with the babies and children which I found to be so completely unconventional for any airline, especially one of this alleged caliber. I do feel that there should be a separate section of planes for infants and children so that the crying etc can be confined to one area and passengers aren't exposed to what we were exposed to. The man behind me verbalized what I had been feeling when he stated "If I could, I would jump off of this plane. This is torture". The purpose of my trip was a global health mission to Kenya for a hospital to hospital partnership. Other team members in my group requested an upgrade and offered to pay cash. We were all appalled to be denied. The Qatar Airline staff couldn't process the upgrade and we still can't understand why. Seems a shame for the airline to have lost all that potential profit. For me, this was a return trip (I had been there in March 2015). Last year I flew Swiss Air and Brussels Air where I had much more enjoyable flights without any incidents. I will be notifying all of my friend, relatives, and colleagues of this nightmare experience and will certainly advise them against flying Qatar Airways."

Pros: "The crew and food were excellent! Great pilot also."
Cons: "Seats were too small and not very much cushion for your bottom, especially for a 15 hour flight. Also 3 out of my 4 flights with Qatar were delayed 20-45 minutes after everyone was boarded on the flight. Person in front of me 2 of 4 flights had their seat reclined which gave me no room what so ever. It made eating and watching tv uncomfortable."

Cons: "Stop pandering fear with masks."

Cons: "Everything was great"

Cons: "This was a great short flight."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and efficient. The flight got in slightly early. Baggage was swiftly delivered after our arrival."
Cons: "Very little legroom. I would have appreciated a small lunch item, beyond a tiny bag of almonds or two small cookies. But this is where we are these days with air travel."

Pros: "They got us there on time and safe."
Cons: "Nothing really you guys did a really good job getting me to where I need to go.Thank you so much!!!"

Cons: "Too hot. Bathrooms were dirty. No leg space in comfort+."

Pros: "The gate agents and flight crew were very accommodating."
Cons: "I was extremely annoyed that TSA Pre-Check was unavailable at Terminal 2 at 8:15am. This is unacceptable and not the TSA's fault. I fault the airline for this oversight. Delta needs to communicate better to the passengers if there is a possibility of this service being unavailable at an airport."

Pros: "Crew was nice and funny"
Cons: "The free messaging WiFi didn’t work for me"

Pros: "Seating was fine"
Cons: "Did not have a wheelchair waiting for my wife when we arrived in LAX"

Cons: "Even the baggage was quick (highly unusual for Columbus, Ohio)! Everything went smoothly."

Cons: "Person next to me overflowed into my seat…"

Pros: "Departed on time. Very courteous crew."
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "The floor of the aircraft was cold!"

Cons: "Crying baby"

Pros: "Immagration was fast and organized didn't take long to move through customs. Quick and smooth"

Cons: "It was a late flight and didn't see the flight crew much at all"

Pros: "The crew was good"
Cons: "The flight was incredibly uncomfortable. The Delta team in Houston was not very pleasant."

Pros: "El servicios al cliente ala hora de registrarme, fue malísimo, en Santiago república dominicana,"

Pros: "Excellent crew, snacks and coffee, comfortable economy seats. Plane landed 15 min early. Bags beat me to the carousel."

Pros: "Generally, Delta is cleaner, their terminals are much nicer, and the experience is better than one with American and United. I wish they had more direct flights to my normal destinations--I'd fly with them more!"
Cons: "Someone unloaded a lot of crumbs on my tray table and they all got smooshed on the back of the seat between the tray table and chair. It was pretty nasty. (The tray table was clean, the back of the seat wasn't. Please be nasty.)"

Pros: "Gate Agent was extremely helpful and compassionate regarding making sure our family (traveling with adolescent children)was accommodated ."

Pros: "On Time, comfortable seats, good coffee and mixed nuts, smooth flight and landing."

Pros: "Seats were very Comfortable"

Pros: "My seat was randomly the exit row, so more leg room and pilots made great time"
Cons: "Left 20 minutes late because of travel agents"

Pros: "I araised safely in New York and all my luggage finally arrived. I suppose that is good but so much else was bad, very bad."
Cons: "The morning of my flight I got a notice the departures time was changed by one hour later but to still arrive at the airport at the same time. So I ended up spending almost four hours at the airport before leaving. Boarding was a mess as "groups" were not called but everyone just rushed the gate in mass and we're let on. Staff were functional but looked and acted surly. It was a functional flight in that I arrived at my destination but it was not managed and I did not feel my business was wanted-only my money."

Pros: "Very comfortable and didn't feel cramped. Quick flight."
Cons: "No choice in snack and I couldn't eat what I was given. Staff appeared checked out and not bothered. No entertainment but it was a quick flight."

Pros: "Female flight attendant was incredibly personable and had a bubbly personality. Definitely made you want to smile"

Cons: "Not enough room. Could have better technology and better food choices."

Pros: "On time, pretty friendly crew"
Cons: "Too small a plane for that long a trip. Bathrooms were VERY small & rare."

Pros: "Always nice to be on an American plane out of an American airport.....SO much more professional. :))"

Pros: "The initial boarding process was quick, smooth flight"
Cons: "I've never had a flight wait over 30 minutes past departure got other people to make a connection and get on to this flight. Seems beyond normal and wrong to those that were there in time and on the flight to support an on time departure"

Cons: "For the second consecutive Delta flight, one at LGA, one at JFK, (it’s never happened on any other airline) TSA pre-check was closed and over a dozen agents trying to upsell the CLEAR program were working hard to get people to spend $175 not to wait in the resulting one hour long line."

Pros: "Had tv & movies available but kept losing signal"
Cons: "Terrible turbulence. Very rough landing. No beverage service. Late taking off."

Pros: "Excellent service, God flight"

Pros: "Layout of aircraft"
Cons: "Couldn't find USB port."

Pros: "The crew and service were outstanding, seat was comfortable."

Pros: "I was going for weekend trip and because of delays I would've been there less than 20 hours. But Delta was terrific in giving me a refund and essy to work with via Twitter. 2 hour phone delay but they called me back to complete refund."
Cons: "Chaos at gates. Changed gate 3 times. No real updates."

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Comfort"

Pros: "Even with the weather being bad, the flight crew handled the situation really well. No one on the plane freaked out which was awesome, so I'm happy with the way they handled it."
Cons: "The weather was pretty nasty so we had to be re-routed to Cleveland to get more gas before landing in Columbus. It definitely wasn't the airline's fault, but it still was annoying. Thankfully I didn't miss anything!"

Cons: "Super delayed. Sat on runway for 2.5 hours"

Cons: "Delayed flight, mechanical"

Pros: "Excellent. Smooth staff. Lots of humor and smiles"
Cons: "No entertainment except paid WiFi."

Cons: "If you have to swap out planes, do it at night, not the morning of the flight! And tell the customers in advance, so they can get some sleep instead of hurrying to the airport for an "on time" flight that couldn't be flown because of an equipment problem."

Cons: "See above."

Pros: "At least there was a free shuttle to the discounted rate hotel."
Cons: "There was not enough time to run to the connecting flight. Was told they could not wait, yet then the plane sat on the runway for 25+ min. Had to get a hotel and rebook the flight. Very poor experience flying Delta."

Pros: "I was very grateful to have made this flight on standby."
Cons: "Someone has to sit in the seat next to the restroom. Had I a choice in the matter, I would have preferred to sit elsewhere. But as I said, I was grateful to have made the flight, and arrive at my destination a mere 3 hours late."

Pros: "Got on earlier flight as standby."

Pros: "Flight attendant was excellent and pilots did a great job with weather"
Cons: "nothing."

Pros: "Cookies"
Cons: "Late"

Cons: "The entertainment did not work good the entire flight"

Cons: "Not much legroom and no tv’s on a 10-hour flight"

Pros: "Not and horrible waited for 10hour before we board the last journey"

Pros: "Great selection of entertainment"
Cons: "Food was not what I’m used to on Lufthansa"

Pros: "Food was great"
Cons: "Connect flight time was cutting it short- sane scenario."

Cons: "Delayed flight barely catch the next one."

Pros: "Timeliness of fligyts"

Pros: "Crew was excellent."

Pros: "Was a very smooth trip."
Cons: "The seat rows were so crammed together, you could hardly get out of your row."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We missed our flight bc our luggage was stuck on the plane for 1.5 hours and we missed our connection. After running around the airport, waiting on the phone for over 2 hours and in line for 45 minutes, we are booked on a later flight and hope to get home tonight."

Pros: "I like everything about Lufthansa in terms of quality and service"
Cons: "Punctuality. I fly lufthansa twice a week and I have yet to fly on time. There are always a delay."

Pros: "nice sevice"
Cons: "I asked a bald headed steward for an additional chocolate and he said he was saving for first class. come on poor customer service"

Cons: "I was transferring from an international flight and was not able to check 8n online, thus I didn’t get to choose my seat. I ended up squeezed in a middle seat next to a man who was served a lot of alcohol and took up more than his share of room."

Cons: "the plane was late boarding and some on board had tight connections. crew were aware but didnt let us leave first.we barely made our connection as we had to go through security in Munich. stress could have been avoided by letting us deplane first."

Cons: "Luggage lost"

Pros: "Food was excellent. Wide variety of entertainment options. Good German beer."
Cons: "Cramped seating in economy for the long flight with thin padding making me very aware of the knees of the man behind me."

Pros: "Fast boarding."
Cons: "The usual flight discomfort, but the seat in front of me was broke. The person in it struggled to stay out of my lap, which I appreciated. The connecting flight had a non-functional screen and the reading light broke and flew across the cabin."

Pros: "everything"

Cons: "No reason for the cancellation was given. I arrived in Cairo a day late for a 10 day tour I had already paid for which caused major problems for me. I will never fly Lufthansa again."

Pros: "All good - flight, service all great!!!"

Pros: "The food was good."
Cons: "The seats were not too comfortable and the video screen was small."

Cons: "In economy class, seats are packed tight"

Pros: "Crew was nice. Lufthansa crew is usually good, so no complaints."
Cons: "Even the crew said that the plane was too crowded, and that they should have used a larger plane for such a full flight.There was no entertainment on the plane, unless you provided your own device. My flight from Chicago to Frankfurt was on a very large plane so I have no complaints, but, the plane chosen from Frankfurt to Tel Aviv was much smaller, and packed to the gills, with passengers, and luggage, and crew. The crew themselves remarked that the type of plane used for this flight was inappropriate."

Cons: "Nothing. Great flight great crew."

Pros: "Loved flying business class. Great service! Flight was on time for departure and arrival."

Pros: "They did get us other flights home and got us a hotel to stay in. There were meal vouchers but it was so late by the time we were rebooked we could not eat dinner and our flights left too early to be able to use them, but it was a nice effort on their part."
Cons: "They cancelled the flight due to mechanical issues which was understandable. The problem was the chaos at Frankfurt airport because the instructions given to us to get to the Lufthansa service desk were totally inadequate. At least we didn't have to sleep at the airport like some passengers did."

Pros: "The food, the staff, the plane"
Cons: "Unfortunately my movie screen wouldnt work which bummed me out for the long flight ☹"

Pros: "Did not get into flight"
Cons: "They changed the gate in last minute without proper communication"

Pros: "On time and straightforward - unlike the previous night when an Air Traffic Control weather delay prevented a connection at Chicago (no fault of Lufthansa). So I stayed over in Arkansas at home as there was no offer of compensation (hotel or $) for the delay."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Planes were new. Delayed flights but caught up by staff."
Cons: "Food was terrible. Check in process chaotic. Service was fair."

Pros: "Boarding was organized, flight was not profoundly oversold."
Cons: "Food was not appetizing."

Pros: "Appreciate the entertainment options and the crew did an excellent job ensuring that we all were as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "Wish there were individual air vents that could be used to help cool off those of us who were hot. Really did not like the hour we sat on the runway waiting for a gate at O'Hare. No entertainment, no bathrooms, no getting up to stretch our legs and it got hot. While not necessarily the airlines fault, it was a sour end to an otherwise good flight."

Cons: "That my seat was broken the whole time. I have a spinal injure and need to rotate positions while sitting. My seat was broken and my back hurt badly."

Cons: "old model aircraft"

Pros: "TV & movie selection, food and drinks were great! staff was friendly and there seemed to be a bit more room between seats!"

Pros: "Service,entertainment, and food. Easy check in"
Cons: "Cabin was too warm. No air vents in new aircraft so difficult to sleep."

Pros: "From Munich to Toronto, it was great, especially being seated where I wanted, the window. I was able to watch great movies too, and during a 9hr flight, thats really nice."
Cons: "The food could be better. Too salty. But it is better than nothing and it was hot! So that was good."

Pros: "It was all together a pleasant trip."

Pros: "The crew on Lifthansa is fantastic!!!!"
Cons: "There was no entertainment system, but it was a short flight! There was also a confusing bus to the plane. It was poorly marked and there was a point where the doors where closed and the bus was out front, we were all pounding to get through the door, then the bus drove off, we thought the my left us. 5 minutes later another bus came. We were fine, but the group of 8 did panick and had an unnecessarily stressful experience. Simple communication could fix it!"

Pros: "Service from Chicago to Munich excellent! Air Dolomiti flight crew superb. All cockpit crews competent."
Cons: "Poor attitude and service in US from United flight attendants."

Pros: "Generally a smooth flight. My geographically knowledgeable friend pointing out towns, rivers, forests and places we visited in 2012 as we moved across Italy, the Swiss Alps and Germany. Delightful."
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "Nothing really"

Pros: "They lost my luggage."

Pros: "Kept getting bumped into"
Cons: "Hospitality"

Cons: "Seats were too small; my knees were always against the seat in front of me. Take-off from Dulles was extremely rough. The landing wasn't much better."

Pros: "Ues"

Cons: "When transferring our luggage from the flight from Panama, we had to walk all the way to the entrance of the airport as if we had just arrived there instead of being able to transfer the luggage directly. This was not communicated, and we ended up walking around a lot and having to ask at the info desk. When we finally got to the counter, the woman there gave confusing instructions and was incredibly rude to us. As for entertainment on the flight, we couldn't do anything without the app, which you have to get before you're on the plane. Boo."

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

Cons: "Given that the airline tickets were purchased together many months ago, it would have been nice if we - husband and wife - would have had side-by-side seating. In the computer age of 2018, that cannot be very difficult to orchestrate."

Pros: "Staff was friendly and helpful."

Cons: "This airline is never on time. Their employees are rude and unhelpful. Planes were dirty! I won’t fly them again"

Pros: "The service"
Cons: "Plane too small and uncomfortable"

Pros: "Flight on time, good polite service. Ground crew helped me check in again after the flight from Europe and find my way around O'Hare."

Cons: "Delayed for an hour, sitting on plane. Not enough leg room."

Pros: "Excellent service."

Pros: "Comfortable seat"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The onboard wifi was not working."

Pros: "Entertainment."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "When we finally got in board and going the pilot got us there quickly to make up for lost time. Staff was nice, it was beyond their control."
Cons: "We waited an hour to board due to a seat that would not stay upright and mechanics fixing it. I was very tired after international travel and it was my last flight to get to my car and go home."

Pros: "Coffee was delicious. No imagination with the snack of pretzels."

Pros: "For the first time I did not fly on a puddle jumper. Not only was it a real jet, it had good seat comfort and leg room even in economy class. The crew was friendly and attentive. They came by with offerings of water at least 4 times for a 2+ hour flight. Contrast that with my last two 5 hour flights on Virgin and American where they came by with water — ONCE. WiFi wasn’t working for either flight and of course the lack of decent food is discouraging. The coffee has improved which is a plus. Overall, good job, United! Nice not to be jammed in like sardines for once."
Cons: "WiFi wasn’t working and food selection is non existent. Other than that, a very pleasant flight overall."

Pros: "On my flight home from Columbus, there was one guy running the whole ship! He. Was. Everything!!! So Attentive but not overly so. And he read my mind and gave me what I needed before I even realized I did. Thank you to him for one of my best flights!"
Cons: "There really wasn't an entertainment option. A lot of airlines these days have much better service that's simple yet good. Also, just a small pack of pretzels? Fail. You have to keep up with the Deltas and Jetblues of the world!"

Pros: "On time. Friendly employees"
Cons: "The snacks"

Pros: "Comfort"

Pros: "Landing"
Cons: "No Information about when we would leave jersey"

Cons: "Was way too hot on the plane."

Pros: "Super nice crew."

Pros: "Liked the staff, always friendly even with several delays. The assist staff were excellent"
Cons: "Did not like the delays and gate changes - but that wasn't the airlines' fault"

Pros: "the plane was on time, smooth take off and landing, crew was efficient and friendly. it was great !"

Cons: "Group 5 was a very delayed boarding beyond what it should have been with no explanation. Felt like second class citizen"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable and had plenty of leg room"

Pros: "The crew were very understanding that we all just wanted to be home (the flight was delayed for three hours, so we didn't get home until 2am). They were efficient and got us home safely and quickly."
Cons: "I was not impressed with United and how they handled the delay. The staff did not care that we were waiting for 5 hours for a plane they couldn't even guarantee was coming. No workers were at the gate for a long time to even help out customers."

Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "feeling cramped"

Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Plane was delayed 1 hrs because short of crew member"

Pros: "Time of flight"
Cons: "Crew. The flight attendant in the forward cabin was rude and yelled at the passengers."

Pros: "Plane was very comfortable. Attendants were friendly and it was very smooth and quick!"

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Maybe pick a packet food that is more favoured by more people. The wasabi peas weren't a good choice for our family"

Cons: "Good trip overall."

Pros: "Even though it was a bumpy flight do to strong winds, the pilot did his best to find smooth air"
Cons: "The baggage claim took forever. Our flight actually disappeared from the tv screen and our luggage was not out. Finally after waiting about 20 minutes it popped back up on the screen and them arrived. This is the second time this has happened to me in Columbus and I don't fly there too often"

Pros: "The lady flight attendant as the best I have ever had. I think her name was Jan."

Pros: "Flight was delayed because they couldn't get their passenger count straight! 30 min delay just to leave the gate!"
Cons: "When we arrived 20 mins late and then no one was at the terminal gate to put sky walk in place! After 20 min wait we had to walk down the aircraft stairs outside and go thru a door and climb two flights of stairs just to get into the airport"

Pros: "Everything was smooth and senseless. And I liked kayak updated me which baggage terminal my bags were. Saved a lot of time walking around the Dulles terminal."

Cons: "Best Airlines"

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

Pros: "Nothing noteworthy was done well."
Cons: "The boarding staff is incompetent resulting in a 2+ hour boarding time. No control or concern for boarding zones, multiple unnecessary and inconsistent ticket checks, and unclear process. If you took 300 toddlers, made 50 of them gate agents and said board an airplane, you would get about the same result. Food and crew in flight were mediocre. Entertainment system in the seat back doesn’t work, shuts off in the middle of films, and is for some reason controlled by the wrong arm rest. I was in the aisle seat, my arm rest control panel did not control anything, but every time my neighbor shifted her arm it changed the volume on my system. Ethiopian airlines is what failure looks like."

Cons: "I changed my flight but they didn’t change it and now I’m stuck!!!"

Cons: "Good crew"

Pros: "They an amazing crew"
Cons: "They need to improve on the flight check-in and boarding at thier airport in Bole, it is so messy. Also thier inflight menu is nothing special"

Cons: "Addis Ababa is chaos and not clean."

Pros: "Great crew!"

Pros: "Land crew attention was polite and nice"
Cons: "Restrooms on board was dirty, no toilette paper nor tissues. One fight attendant was particularly impolite, hitting and pushing instead of asking"

Pros: "Crew was really great - helpful and kind."
Cons: "Both flights delayed which meant I missed my connecting flight. Stuck in Rome airport for several hours with no information about rescheduled flight. Finally figured it out with help of Rome airport information desk."

Pros: "Very good,on time good service"
Cons: "Better seats on business in boing 737 800"

Pros: "I love the entertainment and frequent availability of food and drinks"
Cons: "The seats are too squished together. I was stuck next to a fat woman who kept shutting off my movies by hitting the controls of my arm chair"

Cons: "No Gin & Tonic Bus transfer to airplane for international flight? Twice...?"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "stuck in the plane with no AC for 2h serve twice the same chicken hot hot hot plane arrived in the middle of the night travelling with a baby"

Pros: "so good and comfortable"
Cons: "the plane was old though."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "we had an overnight stay in addis ababa so we got a free accommodation in town, that was so great, a chance to see town and get a good night sleep before our next flight. the plane is big with screens so you can watch movies, the seat is comfortable, even for a tall guy like me (1.9 m)."

Pros: "Ethiopian Airlines it great."
Cons: "Nothing"

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."

Cons: "On board attendants not the friendliest Kids food options very limited"

Pros: "Seats are reasonably comfortable with sufficient storage space Food was OK"
Cons: "Chech in was poor - didn’t have priority stickers for business class luggage. Had to go to different counter for hotel voucher. Overall not good and professional Didn’t have ice on the plane ( for drinks, water etc)"

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Good not that great - a suggestion - why not something like fresh bread (sandwiches) with cheese and tomato on it - bread often not so fresh"

Pros: "Very calm, professional and willing to help you enjoy the flight as much as possible. They show true concern and not a detached professional management that you get from most flight attendants of other airlines."

Cons: "The services at the airport was terrible. The Booked me a flight with only a 30 minute layover. When I try telling the people before boarding the plane, big Norred me. When I told the flight attendant she said she would talk to the captain to see if there’s a way I could get a ride to my next plane so I wouldn’t miss it. That never happened. When we got off the plane no one at the airport would help us and when I was trying to run to my next terminal one of the officers at the airport told me to slow down because I wouldn’t miss the plane and I was fine. When I asked help with directions and told him I was afraid of missing my flight people laughed and walked away. When I finally found my terminal and got to it, my flight had already took off seven minutes prior. I absolutelyHated my experience flying with Ethiopian air. The seats are uncomfortable on the plane, not all the seats recline back the same level, and when I was eating dinner I decided to eat chicken since I can’t eat beef and halfway through the check in my stomach started her and I looked up the chicken and it was still pink inside."
