Good and comfortable flight Helpful crew Decent food and drinks
The food was terrible The flight attendance was sloppy and late with everything!! Never again
Seat electronics kept failing (as in absolutely nothing worked) - crew re-set it multiple, but didn’t move me until finally three quarters of the way into the flight - abysmal. Entertainment options are plentiful, but a number of expected movies were missing (did an SQ flight 3 days later and expected titles were on SQ) - does Qatar sensor what they show?
We encountered a glitch when we tried to board the flight because our boarding passes had been printed by Qatar Airways in Jakarta. Those were not recognized by Alaska’s system also we had to step out of line and have new boarding passes printed.
Plane was clean, bathrooms were clean. Staff were very polite. Coming from Air India it was a welcome change.
Cons: "We need new moves. There were a lot of old movies"
Pros: "Always on time"
Cons: "Food bad. Much better taste at the lounge in Doha"
Pros: "Crew was nice. Seat was broken for recliner."
Cons: "Having parents with infants board with or after those needing assistance. It was an inconvenience having a fussy infant wait in a long line. We had bassinet seats so boarding first would not have slowed the seating process."
Cons: "Wheelchair was booked for me for both flight but i could not get that service. No one available for wheelchair. Very bad service."
Pros: "Crew was very polite and helpful."
Cons: "Quality of food could be better Hindu meal was not as good as expected"
Entertainment system poor - couldn't hear, no flight info etc.
Cons: "The cabin attendants attitude need to be warmer and friendly. The food was not good."
Cons: "Ethipian Airlines overbooked my return flight and did not offer me an alternate return flight so I could return on my designated date. They instructed me to come back the following date to fly. I was not compensated nor offered at the very least an apology. The ticketing staff was unprofessional and attempted to blame me for not flying. Do not fly Ethiopian Airlines out of Accra ever!!!"
Pros: "Food and drink was good."
Cons: "Every single flight (4 total) took off late and even caused us to miss a connection. On the way to Madrid from Entebbe, my luggage was mislabeled and sent to London and now is completely lost. It has been two days of a trip of having no clothes, shoes, or toiletries other than what I had on my person. And I have yet to hear from anyone with Ethiopian Airlines, only representatives from Madrid airport."
Cons: "Flight departure change 10 min earlier was not emailed. Total confusion and communication problems for boarding. In addition the shuttle bus was sent to the wrong airplane and had to return 3 times."
Cons: "Stop using old planes with no personal entertainment systems on the back of the seats."
Pros: "Comfortable seat and fairly friendly crew"
Cons: "Better reception and understanding at the airport. The staffs are not considerate."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by nearly 4 hours due to a cargo loading issue in Mombasa. Communication from Ethiopian Airlines staff regarding the issue & delay was very poor. Passengers were becoming very anxious and tense regarding the flight, if it would depart, and the safety of the plane. Improved communication from the Ethiopian Airline staff would have gone a long way to calming the situation and reassuring passengers."
Pros: "Champagne; boarding via SATS business class was smooth but I doubt Ethiopian has much responsibility or this."
Cons: "The rest: even mediocre fast food would have been better. The starter was some chewy rosebeef, the main where soggy chicken nuggets. The butter served was rancid! Gross. Also big difference between the older and newest 787! This was the older☹️. Ground crew unhelpful."
Cons: "Unsufficent information about boarding ..I missed my flight I will never use this service again ... complete waste of time"
The flight attendants on this flight were incredible! One even gave me her own dinner when my special meal order wasn’t transferred due to a flight delay! She insisted and I was so grateful. That is going above and beyond! The issue I had with the flight was with Lufthansa support. I missed my connection due to a flight delay and they wouldn’t rebook online, only in person. This took a lot of time and visits to the airport waiting for a Lufthansa agent to arrive 5 hours later than posted and almost paying full-fare price for the new flights and refusal to add my special meal orders. It made for a challenging journey home and I didn’t feel valued as a customer.
Pros: "Great plane Food ok Entertainment system good"
Cons: "Snacks in between meals (9 hr flight no snacks in between meals) Poor choice of films"
Pros: "Crew was attentive, punctual, and third meal on a 14 hour flight is right."
Cons: "Movies are badly dated, and a bit limited in choice. System was a bit difficult to navigate, and slow to respond."
Pros: "Boarding and comfort"
Cons: "Should be more food/drink selections Probably better to fly Jambo Jet as it has more on offer (even if I have to pay)"
Pros: "I liked when there was turbulent, the pilot told us that we should be calm as the plan was going to experience turbulent in a few moment"
Cons: "I felt like the queen cake had a lot of sugar, think of those who do not eat sugar"
Cons: "Food - the vegetarian sandwich was cheese with a tomato and cucumber. I mean really. How about a nice tasty hummus sandwich or falafel?"
Pros: "I didnt like anything for this trip - From Kinshasa to Nairobi via Lubumbashi not interesting just tired and borring"
Cons: "First the direct flight from Kinshasa to Nairbi"
Pros: "Lie Flat beds in Business Class."
Cons: "Meal service was very slow, and food was uninspiring. Essentially economy meals placed on proper plates."
Cons: "Avoid flight delays. We missed our connecting flight on Dubai because of delayed departure from Nairobi."
Cons: "The food could be improved and the movie collection could be updated"
Absolutely no leg room for 5 hours. Eating the meal (which wasn’t bad) with a plastic knife and fork and no room was nigh impossible - especially trying to cut up meat and vegetables. I had my steward light switched on for almost an hour and none of the crew ever came to see what I wanted. Two toilets for the whole of Economy - approximate 165 people I think.
Pros: "Our baggage arrived with our flight."
Cons: "If Air Seychelles Johannesburg has not left us for two days in Seychelles without luggage, we would not have been worried."
Pros: "The flight itself,when it occurred, was fine. The original flight was cancelled. Checking into the airport hotel was chaotic and time consuming. We got 5 hours sleep. Check in was also chaotic. The flight was okay but half the plane’s luggage was left behind."
Cons: "See above. Our luggage was supposed to arrive last night. It didn’t. We pray it arrives tonight. Very bad service."
Cons: "Meal portions were very small... My asian veg meal that i ordered did not reflect on my seat number... The TV screens and remote need to be updated. Sound via the earphones was terrible."
Pros: "Every thing was superb. Thank you for a safe and comfortable flight. Will recommend"
Cons: "Listening equipment and TV not up to standard"
Pros: "crew nice"
Cons: "crew incompetent at special meal requests. I did it online, called, and talked to gate agent. Yet, it still kept getting messed up."
Pros: "Video selection was nice. Food was good."
Cons: "Crew was a bit grumpy. The food and clean up was incredibly slow. I was actually impressed by how slow it was."
Pros: "Everything was a great experience."
Cons: "The crew wasn't very happy. A few more smiles would make a world of difference."
Cons: "My luggage is lost. I have to wait for 3 days for it to get to my final destination. That is very upsetting."
Pros: "Seat back television monitors were nice for an Airbus A320. Free wine with the meal and Breakfast."
Cons: "Walking down the steps of the plane in the rain to exit the aircraft at Seychelles."
We were charged an additional $54 usd per passenger to board, not mentioned in the ticket.
