Cons: "No gate for departure or arrival. No business class longe in Cape Town."
Pros: "The crew was v good"
Cons: "The seats and boarding staff"
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."
Pros: "Crew was excellent. Really helpful people."
Cons: "Seats are so tight and close to each other."
Pros: "Amazing staff"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats and poor entertainment systems"
Pros: "The plane was new and spotless, the crew did everything possible to make the flight great. Food service, and Wine and Cocktails were always served with a smiling face and it made you think of flying many years ago. Service cleanliness of the restrooms and staff were top notch"
Cons: "Nothing really."
Cons: "Qatar Air! So refreshing to have good service just when I thought it was gone in this "modern" world..."
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "Nothing really"

Cons: "The new Q suites in business are GREAT!"
Pros: "The entertainment was reasonable, I enjoyed the festive choices."

Pros: "In time ,food"
Pros: "Boarding process was good. But security check is inconsistent at different locations within the Airport terminal."
Cons: "Poor Seat comfort. Too narrow seats. USB charger were not working. Tamil language movies were very few. Crew was efficient but were not polite and not cordial."
Pros: "Entertainment is very good"
Cons: "boarding hall was very small, food was below average for Qatar Airways"
Pros: "I liked their customer service, food, and the flight attendants were friendly. They have a very nice shopping mall at Hamad International Airport in Doha, Qatar."
Cons: "They have less space to move your feet and after a while your left knee begins to hurt because you have been sitting in the plane for a long time. Whenever I asked to get a drink of water or soft drinks, it took the flight attendant 10-15 minutes to arrive with my drink. I understand she was occupied with other duties, but she should have made me her priority."
Pros: "Jain meal was quite uninteresting Flight was too packed Cabin air stale and dry"
Pros: "process quick and efficient"
Cons: "average seats"
Pros: "Movies collections, friendly staffs"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 4 hrs"
Pros: "Short flight, seat pitch OK and food adequate. Good crew."
Cons: "Bus boarding always chaotic"
Cons: "Baghdad is still an armpit. Doha is very nice. Kuwait not so nice. Qatar airlines has the best service I have ever had in 35 years of air travel."
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!"
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: "Courteous, helpful and professional crew members."
Cons: "No internet service on long international flight. Boarding process for business class could be better."
Pros: "The professionalism of the staff"
Cons: "No comment"
Cons: "I was charged a insanly high fee for my luggage that was almost twice the price of my original flight ticket purchase. the agent offered no resolution for the confusion in their web descriptions for baggage allowance. This must happen to customers frequently because the wording is not clear. i was very upset and due to this i will NOT fly this airline again. i was charged the price of a first call flight in total for economy service. NOT GOOD"
Cons: "It was all good"
Pros: "Everyone on duty!!"
Cons: "Plane configuration; seats were a bit cramped, knee space."
Pros: "Every thing"
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"
Pros: "Food quality needs to improve, some chairs can't recline."
Pros: "Mi única incomodidad es que el vuelo iba repleto y fue imposible dormir en ese mínimo espacio de un asiento. Pero eso no es culpa de ellos, supongo..."
Pros: "The attitude of the staff"
Pros: "Journey was ok."
Cons: "Flight was on runway for more than 45 mins. I had to run to catch my connecting flight. If the flight had to wait then why on runway after landing. Anyways I barely caught my connecting flight."
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Pros: "Seats were to narrow for a tall person"
Pros: "Good quality aircrafts"
Cons: "There was no non vegetarian meal available."
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."
Cons: "Too late."
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: "Good boarding. Nice flight attendants."
Cons: "Economy seats were too close to others. Entertainment displays on 777 planes didn't react well to touch. Too many large roller bags allowed on plane. Arm rests on A330 and 777 wouldn't go all the way up."
Pros: "Almost every thing except TSA searching"
Cons: "TSA part"
Pros: "A380 - was amazing. Roomy and quite"
Cons: "veg food was mostly repeated in all the meals, didn't track who is vegetarian, so ran out of veg food. Pizza wasn't great."

Cons: "The seats were pretty stiff compared to the A380 business class seats on my preceding flight."
Pros: "Flight was nice and on time"
Cons: "No toothbrush toothpaste and eyes shades provided"
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "Nothing, absolutely loved it"
Cons: "Boarding system did not work temporarily and the boarding was delayed"
Pros: "Pilot does not waste time chatting. Still too much chatter (interrupting movies) but less than on other airlines."
Cons: "Entertainment system is Windows based and designed by a moron, especially CC behavior. Shows ads (LOTS) before each movie. Pops up window chrome every time you dismiss PA announcements. Very few movies/TVs (even those from the US) have CC."
Cons: "Delayed my luggage. Still waiting for Emirates to call me after 2 days"
Pros: "First time we flew on business on international (we upgraded)."
Pros: "entertainment was great!"
Cons: "Not much to eat for a vegan."
Pros: "Service on the plan was excellent. Food was delicious"
Pros: "The crew and food was great."
Cons: "The insect repellant sprayed twice through the cabin was horrible."
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "Crew was not very friendly. Had argument with a old man in the next row over serving glass of water"
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "I must admit....this is one of the best experiences I have had flying and I fly this route a lot. I was traveling with an Elder who required a wheelchair and every step of the way it was smooth and the crew was attentive."
Cons: "Usually, on the night flights you get a small toileteries kit with ear plugs, eye cover and a toothbrush. I kind of missed that..."
Pros: "Professionalism of flight crew. Movie & entertainment selection. Overall cleanliness of aircraft."
Cons: "Ground crew was not well organized. Lacked attention and professionalism. Bad way to start a flight."
Pros: "Good facilities, food and entertaniment. Seat comfort not so good."
Pros: "Special ordered food was good, felt like we ate too many times but it was a 15h flight. Extra legroom seats in exit row are great, but other passengers stand in front of you to wait for toilets. Not sure if entirely worth the money for that reason only. Entertainment options were plentiful."
Cons: "Other passengers that treat the public space of an airplane like their own living room or bedroom. Disgusting and rude. I'm sorry the flight attendants have to put up with poor behavior. Amenity kit seems a bit skimpy for economy class. Toothbrush was falling apart and not enough toothpaste. Bring your own on board."
Pros: "Exceptional attention to details of client comfort."
Cons: "No faults."
Cons: "The boarding gate space was quite small and there was no separate queue for business. So you literally had to push through people who were already in the queue to board as a business class. There was no space to go around."
Pros: "all entertrainment onboard is excellent ."
Cons: "the flight is good,,but unfortunately the staff is not accomodating that much,,need some basic training on what kind of food you are serving to passenger.."
Pros: "Attentive crew (Busines cabin was near empty). Highlights the deficit caused by large occupancy A380 Business cabin. A380 business cabin has been economy classed to within an inch of its life, too few crew and those that are on duty disorganised and stressed. 777 crew ratio was 3 crew to 1 pax :)"
Cons: "Engine noise. Boarding in Dubai was a farce as called to gate even though aircraft was severely delayed inbound. Surly lounge staff didn’t help. Business Class gate desk ‘closed’ even though staffed as person was busy on the phone. Weird 2 - 3 - 2 layout means window and centre seats have to clamber over reclined neighbours. Seat width better than A380 and also less tomb like when reclined to nearly flat bed."
Pros: "Everything. The service, food, entertainment. This airline is phenomenal!"
Pros: "Crew is amazing. friendly. Professional. Food is great. Comfortable seating."
Cons: "Inflight entertainment is a little stale. More recent movies would be great."
Pros: "Entertainment good and crew"
Cons: "Boarding in milan horribly disorganized."
Pros: "Overall very good"
Cons: "This seemed far different from emirate flights that I'm used to. Over the years their service has decreased but the 1 meal and sub-par snack I got for an 8.5hr flight was poor, likened to a budget airline. This is the second flight recently I've been on that the drinks come so long after the meal you don't even get to enjoy your cola with the meal. The first food cart should have colas if there won't be another cart to come along until 30+ minutes later. I also expected Emirates to provide an eye patch, an 8 hr+ flight in the night time hours in worthy of an eyepatch. Budget airlines do not provide this, but I expected Emirates to. Lastly, I don't think it's necessary to hand out a menu indicating there is something to look forward to when the food is of quite poor standards for Emirates, standard for all other airlines. Maybe the Durban to Dubai route stocks he flights with less experienced crew, this is the impression I got; a much less refined group of people on the plane."
Cons: "Bathrooms were not clean later in the flight"
Pros: "Trip was shorter by at least one hour than projected."
Cons: "Very dissapointed with return flight. It was like a different airline experience than first leg of trip to Athens"
Pros: "Food was better than Iberia or Delta. Staff greeting friendly."
Cons: "Asked for wine - never came back. No reply. Nothing. Asked for water an hour later - never got water. Asked later in flight, got nasty reply: "Not my job to satisfy coach customers.""
Pros: "Excellent on board!"
Cons: "Everything was good!"
Pros: "The crew was great in everything that they did."
Pros: "Flight crew was responsive and courteous."
Cons: "Seats are hard. Scrambled eggs were not edible."
Cons: "I had a middle seat on this flight and felt very cramped- by the end of the flight my legs were getting cramps and were twitchy. The boarding process was chaos- everyone gathered around the boarding area and it was impossible to board when the zone was called due to all the people in the way. Also, the food for breakfast was good but nothing great- the dinner on the previous flight was much more appetizing. Having said all that, flying Emirates was still a very pleasant experience."
Cons: "Thy did not hv service on demand in First Class. So had lunch at 10.30 am"
Cons: "There was a long bus journey at the airport in Dubai for a flight from Dubai to Lahore. All passengers including myself were very surprised. When the bus stopped neat the air craft for boading, ground staff were seen collecing heavy hand carry luggage from the passengers for putting them in a separate compartment for taking as a cargo, which caused another delay in boading. Old air craft on this route should be replanced. Before boading from Dubai to Lahore, I checked my flight status several times on flight information screen but my flight was not shown on it. Later, I checked on hand touch screen and came to know that gate was B2."
Pros: "Getting off the plane after 24 hours of nonstop crying children"
Pros: "Excellent experience"
Pros: "flight attendants, food, nighttime lights, seats, movies"

Pros: "Great service, comfortable seats, and great entertainment ..the food isnt too bad depending if ur not a picky eater, but overall its the best"
Pros: "Boarding went smooth. Amazingly courteous staff. Great attention all during the flight. Great entertainment options with all kinds of information availability."
Cons: "Customs forms into NY were unnecessary. Everything else that I can think of was out of Emirate's control."
Cons: "The seat sizes were really small and I didn't get the initial seat s that I requested for. The crew were not very professional when it came to serving all that were on board."
Pros: "The service crew was perfect. Check on me through out the flight to ensure that I was comfortable. When meals came around and I was sleeping they check to ensure i did not miss a meal. 5 stars for the crew of Emirates flight 220."
Cons: "Delayed and passengers not given accommodation. Food also had to ask."
Pros: "Great plane Food ok Entertainment system good"

Pros: "Crew was helpful."
Cons: "We were delaying on the outgoing flight and coming back as well."

Pros: "terrible airline"
Cons: "delayed my flights twice"
Cons: "It was way too hot. Our child was uncomfortable from the heat the entire trip."

Cons: "The 737 on second flight ....the long overnight one... Was very uncomfortable in biz class. On arrival in Nairobi...the hub city...there was no staff. A.c. no working or escalator in airport. Biz line for security not open. Food below average. No breakfast as we one meal."
Pros: "Crew efficient and eager to please. Generous with food and drink."
Cons: "Some seats had damaged entertainment equipment. One seat had a damaged USB charging port. We just used the one from the next seat. Another had a damaged remote control for the entertainment system. Still usable via touch though."
Pros: "Airline and service"
Cons: "Asked for a window or aisle seat and wasnt given"

Cons: "Flight was delayed and the plane air conditioning didn’t work when we boarded the plane."

Cons: "Food was bad"
Cons: "Entertainment system plays very old films Stop over 5 hours."
Pros: "Same as above"
Pros: "The flight services were good but with two major horrible issues:"
Cons: "1. It took almost one week after my arrival to trace my checked-in baggage. Horrible indeed. Moreover, the baggage contained my medications and other valuables which I needed on ongoing basis! Very disappointing! 2. Despite being charged for the full fare as indicated online, Kenya Airways charged my debit card an additional fee of $31.19. I thought the amount that I had paid to KAYAK was final? I will NEVER dare use such a travel agent engine again in future!"
Pros: "Trip on the Dreamliner to/from Nairobi/Joburg went very smoothly. Entertainment was limited but worked and was fine for a 4 hour trip. Food was nothing great but nothing disastrous, booze was handed out willingly, staff were efficient, plane was on time - I rate it higher than SAA for the same leg and would choose KA again."
Cons: "Expensive at $800 but limited choice in Africa so what can you do?"
Cons: "The flight to Nairobi was so late that I missed my connection and have to wait about 10 hours for the next flight out."
Pros: "The plane was pretty comfortable, they gave us blankets and pillows even though it was only a 4-hour flight."
Cons: "They served "breakfast" halfway through which was two tiny servings of meat and a piece of chocolate cake. Not much food and not really what I wanted to eat in the middle of the night! Boarding was completely chaotic, some screens said the flight was delayed, others said it was on time (it was delayed). When we arrived in Nairobi they hardly apologized for the delay, and also insisted on sending a bus to come pick us up from the plane because it was raining, which took forever. Missed my connection by about 5 minutes and had to wait almost 10 hours for the next one."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "35 minute departure delay with not even an attempt at an explanation. Broken seat. Cramped."
Cons: "I've taken this flight 6 times and 4 it's been delayed"
Pros: "Boarding was early"
Cons: "Plane full and didnt have enough room for a number of hand luggage, mine invcluded"
Pros: "They no take care of my bag"
Pros: "We were connecting on a delta flight. The agent offered to connect our bags all the way through. We checked with delta. The bags were there but if we didn't ask about them I'm not sure they would have made it."
Pros: "Service excellent, flight on-time."
Cons: "Only 3 movies to choose from?!"
Pros: "Everything fine! Especially appreciated that flights were on time, even early."
Pros: "Kenya Air had a nice plane, nice snack, and good service on board the flight."
Cons: "Zanzibar's check in process was atrocious. The systems were slow, so it took forever to get through the queue. Then we were told we had to check our carry one because they were just over weight. They didn't tell us that upon arrival in Nairobi we would have to leave the secured area, go out, pay the visa fee (cash only), get the bags on the carousel, check in at the front, and go back through security again."
Pros: "- plane was empty so I could sit in the exit seats with more legroom. - staff in the plane was extremely nice. - Pilot avoided turbulence zones."
Cons: "- Smelly cabin - Unfriendly boarding crew - Food"
Pros: "Good crew. Flight not fully booked so had some extra space. Efficient transfer desk"
Cons: "Food - just horrible Nairobi airport not much to do and annoying additional security checks between sub-terminals in terminal 1."
Pros: "The arrival to Monrovia."
Cons: "Losing baggage for a week."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. Food was so-so. No entertainment."
Cons: "They lost one piece of baggage. The check-in crew said we were required to have our vaccination cards although nobody asked for them. Then we waited an hour pulling off one piece of baggage and then they didn't load it on our flight."
Cons: "Food was terrible throughout Seat was tight"
Pros: "Good save for the delay."
Pros: "The flight attendants were as courteous as possible."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by 90 minutes so that passengers on a late flight could join us. Once arriving at Lagos, our luggage was nowhere to be found. The airline failed to follow up regarding when the luggage arrived at Lagos. Horrible experience. Fly with Kenya Airways at your own peril."
Pros: "Ground check-in, onboard staff, plane comfort were all fine and what normally happens. Nice leather seats and space on Embraer plane."
Cons: "At check-in we were told the departure time was an hour late - when I arrived at 2:00am. As I only had 1 hour and 55 minutes in Nairobi before flight to Johannesburg, I was a bit concerned and had to rush from plane to departure gate. Pilot said flight was late due to " plane arriving late", which I think meant - it isn't our fault."
Pros: "Amazing friendly crew. Spot on entertainment!!!"
Cons: "Toilet facilities could have been cleaner"
Pros: "The crew was nice. Service was excellent."
Cons: "The upholstery can be improved."
Cons: "1 hr delay in departure from Lusaka. Plastic cutlery was difficult to eat with. More frequent water/drinks during the flight (or water bottles instead of little cups) would have been appreciated. Movie options were not as great as other airlines."
Cons: "Someone stole my airpods in my bag. I noticed it once reached at home. This is the first time it happens to me. Very bad experience"
Pros: "The landing was smooth and so was the whole flight! Loved it"
Cons: "Food. I ended up throwing up shortly after eating"
Pros: "No problems"
Pros: "The airline was quick to give vouchers for food and hotel when flight was delayed by 5 hours. They were also efficient in rebooking missed connecting flight."
Cons: "On top of a five hour delay that got me to my arrival point 14 hours behind schedule, my two checked bags were also lost and have not been found up to two days later. The food was like being on a Delta flight, and the entertainment screens in my entire row would not work, nor did many others."
Cons: "Entertainment is non existent. Plane is tatty."
Pros: "Excellent crews"
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 okay, though a little bit occupied and thus ignoring some of the customers' requests. The seats are comfortable and spacious with enough leg room"
Cons: "The food could have been better. Honestly much better"
Cons: "Unsufficent information about boarding ..I missed my flight I will never use this service again ... complete waste of time"
Cons: "Flight attendants where bothered to serve us beer, water or any other snack during he flight. I had to beg in both occasions to have my tray taken from my seat."
Pros: "Excellent airline overall Great seats for sleeping"
Cons: "Business class seats are not well appointed Nowhere to put a bottle of water - storage handbag and shoes etc could not be reached without undoing the seatbelt and screen far away from the seat Voice commentary was muffled and therefore unable to be heard"
Pros: "I like the Direct route"
Cons: "Long wait time at checkin Only certain employees accepted money for extra baggage fees Long time boarding Most staff were friendly An employee on board with short hair was not nice and her hair wasn’t professional Paid $160 for the extra bag, but it was lost It is still lost!"
Cons: "Spent 10 hours in a broken seat... wouldn’t recline. Screen on next seat was broken so I couldn’t move there. Bathroom out of toilet paper and at the end of the flight there was SO MUCH TRASH AND STUFF EVERYWHERE it looked like the ground at an outside 3 day concert. I’ve never seen such a filthy plane. And the food needs improvement."
Pros: "Leg space, TV screen and entertainment and the decline of the seat."
Cons: "The toilets floors could be cleaned often. The food service cart could move for urgent pass to the toilet."
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: "Flight time changed without notice. Delays in Medinah caused us to miss our connecting flight to Johannesburg. Really poor communication. No agents would take calls in Jeddah. Really terrible service. Would avoid using this airline at all cost. Not the first time I've been delayed by them"
Cons: "Flight time changed without notice. Delays in Medinah caused us to miss our connecting flight to Johannesburg. Really poor communication. No agents would take calls in Jeddah. Really terrible service. Would avoid using this airline at all cost. Not the first time I've been delayed by them"
Pros: "I received flying miles for this flight, well actually I really tried to find something positive to say"

Cons: "On many of the flights we had to use the roll up stairs. The water that they served tasted like tap water. The seats seem closer (less leg room) than other airlines."
Pros: "Everything was on time, high quality, and enjoyable"
Cons: "There was a fight on the llane but it was because a passenger with mental issues was provoked by a couple so ahe beat up the wife. This was not caused by ET and crew at all, but they stopped it."

Cons: "Unfortunately, I had to request earphones (which were not supplied in the seat pocket in front of me) five times from three different attendants over the course of an hour and a quarter before I was given them. This was not just so I could watch a movie but because the quality of the plane's public address system made it very difficult to listen to the announcements from the captain and the crew. Listening on earphones I was able to hear everything clearly. Why it had to take so long just to give me earphones I don't know."
Pros: "Great prices, and helpful staff"
Cons: "The food was mediocre, almost poor."
Pros: "Excellent chicken dish"
Pros: "When I originally booked this trip it was with one connection and a 16 hour commute time. They added legs to my trip which significantly increased travel time. I tried to cancel my flight because I booked the flight with the necessity of arriving by specific days and times and they insisted on charging me for it so I just forfeited my seat and trip all together. There's nothing good to say about Ethiopian airlines."
Cons: "They are very unprofessional and unhelpful and I'll never book them again."
Cons: "Crew was not friendly and seemed to ignore my requests. Seat was not comfortable. Food was okay."
Pros: "Fabulous. On time departure, 15 min early arrival into Addis. Service was outstanding"
Cons: "About time they introduced WiFi on flights"
Cons: "On both flights. From Tel Aviv to Addis Ababa and from Addis Ababa to Tel Aviv my seat would not recline. These were night flights and the seat in front of me did recline. so it was a very unpleasent experiance"
Pros: "The food and the crew were nice. The entertainment would go in and out, with the buttons malfunctioning at times."
Cons: "Started boarding 4 hours after scheduled departure. Though there was bad weather, our departure was still delayed way past the "adverse weather" conditions at the airport. In the 4 hours we were in Washington, there was no communication whatsoever. No one to inform us of us potentially missing our ADD to JHB connecting flight. None of the workers wanted to help us."
Pros: "Would have liked to have seen more of the cabin crew, but they were pleasant."
Cons: "Food choice was limited. Ethiopian often ran out of meals and just gave me whatever option they had left. Entertainment system didn't always work properly."
Pros: "EVERY THING WAS ON TIME"
Cons: "FOOD NOT GOOD"
Pros: "Nice staff, lits of attention in my aeat"
Cons: "Blocked toilet made cabin unpleasant and stuffy. I was uncomfortable because of smells in the plane. Shoukd have been fixed immediately. Not sure the Purser knownehat to do. Skywatch soes not work in center seats. Could not follow flight status."
