Airline reviews

"It's getting to the point in life that a flight in coach in those little seats for 9 to 15 hours is just too cramped. This was a packed flight with nearly every center seat taken. Good for Qatar airlines, which is a terrific airline, but its tough to ride in those little seats on long-haul flights"

"Qatar is undoubtedly the best airline in the world. Very impressed with their all around service and customer care."

"The airport staff of Qatar airlines was UNFRIENDLY and UNHELPFUL. They all acted like we were bothering them. They gave no help in moving from one station to another. In general they gave an extremely bad first impression of Qatar airlines!!"

Pros: "I would have appreciated that with ALL required paperwork, my stay at check in point would have lasted a little less than two hours I spent standing and waiting for a feedback."
Cons: "Updating clients and offering a seat if it’s a long wait could have improved the situation. It is on reception that the business gets its impression. Thanks."

Pros: "Everything great!"
Cons: "~"

Cons: "The Nairobi airport experience could use a bit of help. there's no a/c and even late at night, it was uncomfortably hot everywhere. Once I'd checked in to the gate I was trapped and couldn't easily leave to get water or go to the restroom, which was increasingly annoying as my flight was delayed. Pretty sure all of this is beyond Qatar Airways' ability to control."

Pros: "Crew was great. They made up for mistakes in a positive and amenable way."
Cons: "Flight was late. There was no communication about it. The flight from Joburg to Doha was late, therefore I missed my connection. The delay was not officially communicated to any of the passengers — no announcements made, no representatives to talk to at the gate — until well past the time that we should have been in the air. It was distressing."

Pros: "The crew was very attentive and professional"
Cons: "Food wasn't great"

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

Pros: "The crew is always very professional."
Cons: "The inflight entertainment was down for 2/3 of the people flying. And it was a 14 hour flight... :/"

Pros: "Everything alright"

Pros: "Great crew and food. Nice economy class."

Pros: "Nice crew, 1 hr free WiFi"
Cons: "Significant delay on jetway, temps uncomfortable,"

Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "I found my seat a bit uncomfortable for this leg of the jurney"

Pros: "The service of the cabin was great!"
Cons: "The food was not of the quality I would have expected from the expectation created by the airlines marketing. We boarded close to a full hour later than scheduled and the boarding process was very slow."

Cons: "Did not make this flight."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Excellent"

Pros: "Best business class I have ever been on. Better than most First class."

Pros: "decent leg room. the staff was accommodating"
Cons: "the brea was har. some of the food was overheated thus making it hard to eat"

Pros: "Fantastic service, very friendly staff who are always happy to help"
Cons: "Should have internet free of charge in flight"

Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "The change of my flight schedule for the entire journey was done without giving me any options (departure flights from origin and return). It would have caused me inconvenience if the change of time does not allow me to adjust my plans."

Pros: "Great flight. Everything was good. The only very small issue is hey offer WiFi but even if you pay the allocation of data make you feel like you living in the 1990. 10 meg free and 300 meg for a whole flight is a complete joke, especially for USD 30. They could manage protocols but give a reasonable service."
Cons: "WiFi"

Pros: "Qatar is a reliable airline."
Cons: "No matter how many times I have traveled with Qatar (5 international flights in the last year); I still do not receive any benefits such a priority boarding or upgrades."

Pros: "The service from check-in till landing was on the ball and superb. They were friendly and eager to assist with everything. They have the latest movies and shows to watch on their in-flight entertainment."

Pros: "great crew and food."
Cons: "being charged excess baggage when one suitcase weigh under weight. Having to wait at the terminal for a hour and a half because of bad weather -- not the pilot's fault"

Pros: "The plane from Johannesburg to Doha was Fine but not as wonderful and comfortable As flight from Doha to Chicago"

Cons: "They lost my bag and that’s disappointing considering I have my bank account details in that bag. Very disappointed by this"

Pros: "just enough time in Doha between flights. Not too long not too short!"
Cons: "Asian vegetarian food can be of better quality."

Cons: "While stay in Doha the did not give any food vochcher for 21 hours what they think no body eat in 21 hours I go to counter they refused next time I will not travel"

Pros: "I was actually impressed with the entertainment selection :)"
Cons: "The economy seats are just unfortunately not a place you can get comfortable enough to sleep. On 14 hour flights one hopes to sleep."

Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Hard cushioning and narrow seats on the 787"

Pros: "Good in-flight service"
Cons: "Cramped seats"

Pros: "In general the crew was very nice."
Cons: "The dreamliner is a little tight in relation to the B777. The Kosher meals very all the same for breakfast lunch and snack"

Cons: "1. rude staff - i stood in Jburg at the counter for 13 minutes (i checked my clock) while 8 staff ladies spoke among themselves in a myriad of languages. FINALLY one lady asked if i had been helped! I said no and she was clearly less than thrilled to be the one to help with my question. i literally just wanted to ask if my seat assignment was a window, middle or aisle, but it was like i was the bane of her existence and i interrupted their social hour. On my outbound flight (ORD to DOH) I also watched three staff members be beyond rude to guest after guest at the check in counter regarding baggage when they came forward to "re check-in" which was a new requirement for most people. There was a lot of general confusion on behalf of the consumers and the staff was NOT the least bit patient or helpful in explaining what they needed from us or why this flight had different procedures than normal. I still don't know why they were so fussy about baggage and made everyone re check in at the gate in fact. And they didnt do it to my baggage so i have no idea why they were so rude to some and completely left others alone. (didn't seem to have to do with size, carrying of electronics, i don't know?) 2. the physical flight - you changed my original flight time to something that was REALLY close for my connection from DOH to CDG, so you instead bumped me to a later flight without consulting me. it would have caused me to miss a connection flight I booked separately through EasyJet from Pairs to my home airport BIQ. I had to figure that out on my own. RUSH through Doha to make my 35 min connection and barely was allowed to board my onward Paris flight by the Qatar gate staff which was only cutting it close as a result of YOUR changes! Yet i was treated like i was somehow "late" and wouldn't be able to board ??? Again incredibly rude staff. Subsequently you lost my luggage because the connection was too tight. i landed on Friday and it didn't catch up to me until Tuesday. Not one person has said sorry or offered any restitution. And this is honestly what upsets me the most. I doubt anyone even reads this. pathetic. I work for a travel club and since Monday (so in 4 days) I have actively reached out to 4 clients to cancel and re-booked their Qatar airways flight to another carrier to get them to Johannesburg. They will be doing the same safari experience I did, but I will NOT recommend and book my clients on Qatar after my experience."

Cons: "You canceled our flight in the last minute. we were starting our holidays and missed one day included the booking reservation. We didn't get any refund regarding this issue. On the other hand, i booked my special meal and never received it."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "In their Business Class they only had two shower room and they wait was 7 hours! I now totally dont trust Kayak and it's ratings. Qatar Airways sucks!"

Pros: "The flight was on time, not full and the crew and the entertainment was excellent. Very happy with the experience of flying on Qatar Airways from Johannesburg to Miami."
Cons: "Everything was well, the food was good not great (even for airplane food) and the only other issue is it seemed like trash from our drinks and food services was picked up for quite a while or until we brought it to the flight attendants ourselves."

Cons: "A 7 hours trip from qatar to kuala lampur, and they serve only a sandwich which in the first place doesnt taste good."

Pros: "landed safely"
Cons: "Had to claim bags at Doha and go through multiple security screenings to board connecting flight. At one point all the security was not functioning and we were packed up in lines. Barely had time to stop at the restroom before final security check where it was all so disorganized. After that check we were told that if we left we had to go through security again. Would have been nice to know that upfront. It was a madhouse going through that final security check and my husband's wallet was lost for a bit. No one really tried to help and we were told to move aside. Finally someone saw that it had fallen beside one of the counters. It was all horrible. Because of all this our 5 hour layover was a hassle with no time for food, etc. The whole airport experience was confusing and badly handled."

Pros: "SPECIALLY THE CREW SERVICE EXCELLENT"

Pros: "Excellent in every way. Clearly a top tier airlines. I will choose Qatar Airlines at every opportunity."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Kayak/priceline re-booked my flight for my sister and I from SAA to BA, but failed to completely reissue us tickets. When we checked in for the flight, we had no ticket for the first leg of the flight, but we had tickets for the remaining flights. We immediately called to fix this problem, but due to slow customer service, we weren't issued tickets in time and the flight left without us. We missed all remaining connecting flights and were forced to buy New tickets. Now we have to work with kayak/priceline to get all my money back due to their error. We came back a day later than expected and missed going back to work."

Pros: "I enjoyed the staff"
Cons: "The screens were old school and I HS a hard time getting it to work Also the sleep mask I received had sticky stuff all over it when I opened the package."

Pros: "Excellent Cabin Crews, Flights on time"
Cons: "Food is mediocre at best, comfort on 787 is terrible."

Pros: "The crew was great, trully world class service"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Because of poor connection, arrived for flight 15 min. before departure. Gate agent wouldn't allow us to board and wouldn't help us rebook. Offered no help."

Pros: "Seat space. Stevice. Terminal."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Attendant was rude and never really finished service, never remembered any requests and consistently skipped guests when providing food or drink service, cabin kept oscillating between either too hot or too cold."

Cons: "We took off in a terrible storm with lightning striking all around the plane. Very rough, lightning which scared the hell out of both me and my wife."

Cons: "Better seat More friendly crew"

Cons: "Flight was delayed for an extra 2 hrs, with inadequate refreshments. Plane wasnt clean and had musty smell."

Pros: "Same things as mentioned for the NBO-EBB leg"
Cons: "Food"

Cons: "No screens on this aircraft"

Cons: "KQ has never not delayed. This time, it was delayed twice for a total of three and a half hours."

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: "Glad to receive small snacks for short flight Headphones were issued from from second flights, but not from Zanzibar"
Cons: "Check air on on plane as it was so lights that air doesn’t hit the face so it was very warm flight"

Cons: "Flight was 4 hours late making for a tight connection in Nairobi and our luggage not making the connection! No matter how good your service, if you don’t get the luggage through, you fail!"

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

Pros: "Yes"

Pros: "No delay."
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "The breakfast was a donut and roll so no protein or healthy option."

Pros: "terrible airline"
Cons: "delayed my flights twice"

Pros: "Kenya Airways changed their flight schedule 48 before our departure. The change meant an extra night before departure and an 11 hour layover in Nairobi before our connecting flight. The KA booking agent provided us with accommodation for the delay and the long layover. We appreciated that."
Cons: "We lost 24 hours in our travel. It was reasonable of the airline to provide accommodation during the delay but the night in Nairobi was at a very dismal hotel where the food quality was terrible."

Pros: "Both segmrnts left on time. The on- flight crew were pleasant. The 787 on first flight comfortable in biz class for a nap. Food service well carried out by crew."
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"

Pros: "Kenya airways theme song"

Pros: "Everything went well as scheduled"

Pros: "I liked the staff members in the plane. they were very nice"
Cons: "the food portions are too small"

Pros: "Boarding was on time. The flight attendant’s response to my call and request for a blanket...first she smiled as if my request was ridiculous but still went ahead to get me the blanket and we joked about it cause the cabin was getting too cold for me and if she hadn’t given me a blanket I would have caught a cold!"
Cons: "Delay to take off, and spaying of the cabin with insecticide when passengers have boarded!"

Pros: "professional KLM flights"
Cons: "headphone audio quality not as good as had hoped"

Pros: "Te time of te flight"

Pros: "Great staff"
Cons: "Didn’t get a blanket at night"

Pros: "Courteous crew."
Cons: "Too crowded from Bamako to Dakar."

Cons: "Entertainment system plays very old films Stop over 5 hours."

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?"

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: "The crew"
Cons: "None"

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: "customer service was superb entertainment screens and selection was excellent seats were among the best on any airline. The plane was a seemingly fairly new Boeing Dreamliner, very nice"
Cons: "Food was good but not spectaular - not up to Singapore Airlines for example but better than most other long haul carriers"

Pros: "Friendly crew, modern plane, good seats"

Pros: "Everything fine! Especially appreciated that flights were on time, even early."

Pros: "Barely made it to boarding through Security as I was late being the only passenger delayed yet the staff were so understanding and patient enough to wait on me as before closing the boarding gate. great Customer service."

Pros: "The baggage handler for Kenya Airways, Derrick, in Johannesbury was very helpful checking on my delayed luggage. The flights and flight attendants were very good."
Cons: "Late departures, unscheduled stop for crew, and baggage not making new flights made me miss two transfer flights. Closed sales kiosk in Johannesburg unable to get an hotel and meal vouchers. Sales lady was rude the next day. Arrived Cape Town over 24 hours late."

Cons: "Kenya Airways ground staff in Nairobi was late to open the desk, creating a large line"

Pros: "The flight was short."
Cons: "There was no clarity on baggage allowance on either leg of the flight. This created a situation in which I was charged two different amounts of extra baggage and given bad information on both the departure and return trip. It was also unclear that, though we'd purchased a Kenyan Airlines round-trip between Nairobi and Zanzibar, the outbound leg was operated by Precision Air. This was not indicated on our e-tickets. We found out at the airport."

Pros: "Generous carry on limit, good prices, complimentary food on flights, on time departures, on demand entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding lines were a bit chaotic."

Pros: "The staff in Addis was pleasant."
Cons: "My original flight was cancelled and I was only given an hour notice before arrival time at the airport! I was rerouted from a one hour direct flight to a 7 hour delay through Nairobi then to Djibouti."

Pros: "Departed on time and arrived on time . Staff very courteous"

Pros: "Everything was great except for all but one flight attendant who could have done with a lesson in charm. There was one very charming attendant whose name began with M but was an unusual name. She was a world class attendant and the others could learn from her. The pilot was well spoken as did a great job taking off & landing."

Pros: "Business passengers still served snacks even with such a short flight. Great view of Mount Kilimanjaro"

Cons: "Not much space between rows,everybody reclined their seat, you could barley move"

Cons: "no headphones available in economy class!!!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "The airline did not make further damage to my bag, they did not cut any more zippers like they did on outboard flight 2 weeks previous"
Cons: "Caused my airport transfer to not wait at airport for me because the flight was so late"

Pros: "The crew on Kenya Airways is generally fantastic. Always pleased to travel with them."
Cons: "My luggage did not make it on to the flight.This seems to be a common thing for flights from Nairobi to Antanarivo."

"Good and efficient service. Food was quite poor though. And my seat hadn't been cleaned from previous flight (pockets still full of gargbage). Flight entertainment had a good screen, but audio with earplugs was terrible."

Cons: "Poor communication"

Pros: "Amazing friendly crew. Spot on entertainment!!!"
Cons: "Toilet facilities could have been cleaner"

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

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

Pros: "Excellent crew, approachable and helpful. Seat was comfortable with legroom and headrest at the right height"
Cons: "Better selection of videos"

Cons: "Stop using old planes with no personal entertainment systems on the back of the seats."

Cons: "Entertainment is non existent. Plane is tatty."

Pros: "Nothing?"
Cons: "Lounge seating and services. Boarding. Lots of uncontrollable people trying to be first to board."

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"

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."

Pros: "Excellent service and on time performance."

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: "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."

Pros: "Crew were nice"
Cons: "Always delaying, catastrophic food."

Pros: "Check in was brilliant. The incoming flight was half an hour early so they wanted to leave half hour early too. We were clearly instructed to be available at gate accordingly. Fabulous breakfast service in Business class too. Pre-order and indicate preferred time of service or to skip altogether so each customer got their required rest."

Pros: "Having never even heard of Ethiopian Airline, our expectations weren’t very high. We found the boarding process to work well. The staff was great and the meals were very good. The flights were on time and efficient."
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."

Pros: "The food served is awesome and sufficient. The flights are comfortable and the crew are friendly. My luggage came right on time and was properly handled"
Cons: "Well there was no entertainment in the flight. That is it"

Cons: "At the Addis airport, it seems chaos reigns! My flight was never listed on any display to say what gate we departed from. A crowd of people boarding for two different planes just rushed the gate area. I’ve got no idea how everyone ended up on the right plane. My flight was never announced I had to keep going up to ask over and over. The bathrooms at the airport are unhygienic and the available food is abysmal. On the plane was better except that the only entertainment is over head screens that didn’t work my overnight flight was miserable as the lights were on the whole time and they repeatedly woke me up to eat throughout the flight. I’ll do what I can to avoid the Addis airport from now on."

Pros: "Aircraft A350 super nice entertainment t equipment and interior very clean."
Cons: "Lost my luggage, could not trace it and no compensation."

Pros: "The plane is spacious lost of leg room"
Cons: "can improve on the food"

Pros: "USB plug, nice TV/ entertainment"

Cons: "I sent them an email about an issue with my flight but they didn't get back to me"

Pros: "Great crew, decent food"

Cons: "Chairs were not reclining. Asked for blanket and didn't get one so I was cold."

Pros: "seat space was good"
Cons: "the flight was full so drink service was not well organized, lack of water"

Pros: "Cabin crew were all charming."
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: "I need a refund what do I do for a credit?"

Cons: "At Addis airport, they announced first that the trip got cancelled and postponed for another 7 hours. Then while lining up to change my ticket, I overheard people saying that the boarding is starting in 30 minutes and we have to rush to the gate. Then the gate number changed 3 times and the boarding time got delayed few times as well. It was a 5 stars chaos that trip!"

Pros: "The flight was ok, left late but didn't impact our arrival time."
Cons: "Tray table was very dirty, restroom not cleaned or refilled, generally unkempt."

Pros: "The flight left on time and arrived 20 minutes faster than scheduled. I usually order Kosher meal and enjoyed the food. Unfortunately the Kosher meal they started to serve recently is the WORST food I have had on board. Please avoid the KOSHER!"

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."

Cons: "I find it exceptionally bizarre that for a company whose name represents a country that spends more than half the year fasting that there isn't an option for this unless you specifically ask online."

Pros: "The crew were courteous"
Cons: "The air conditioning was malfunctioning and there were insufficient blankets on the plane."

Pros: "Some okay entertainment."
Cons: "Lights are on too much, service is slow. Food is poor, no variety. They gave out all the blankets and some people were laying down sleeping in the back with 2-3 blankets meanwhile my friend who had a baby couldn't get a blanket. They are VERY slow or disorganized with picking up the trays after meals are completed."

Pros: "EVERY THING WAS ON TIME"
Cons: "FOOD NOT GOOD"

Pros: "Seats recline back a lot"
Cons: "Two hour delay to taking off due to engine issues"

Cons: "Over 6 hours delay on the first leg of the trip and 20 hours delays on the second leg. All this with no communication/transparency about what was going on."

Pros: "Everything went smoothly on the trip with only one exception."
Cons: "Since the airport was under renovation, the entrance for the gates changed but I was not notified of this earlier and was this waiting in front of a closed gate for a long time before asking an airport staff for help. Also, the notice board did not indicate boarding, so I wasn't sure if my flight was delayed or not."

Pros: "I was prevented to travel , from Lisbon to Rome then the onward connection to Adis and and Juba subsequently , on the rounds of an an error on the booking by which my email address appears in between my name , unfortunately on the very same ticket that i used initiating my outbound trip. therefore i was forced to buy a new ticket which costed me 1,830 euros."

Pros: "ethiopian tipical clothes"
Cons: "crew never care people and seats were dirty and smells. besides barding gate is very far to exit in evry airport"

Pros: "Gave me emergency seat with more legspace on request"
