Airline reviews

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: "~"

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: "Yes. the crew was amazing, respectful and seats had adequate leg room. Entertain equipment was working."
Cons: "Same advertisements before each movie could play were annoying to me."

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

Pros: "The crew, Venyat looking after my aisle was exemplary. He kept note of when I was asleep when the service passed through. Whenever I go to the galley, he would notice and asked if I needed anything. And this is in Economy!"
Cons: "On the A350, the seat doesn't recline much. It was quite uncomfortable."

Pros: "Friendly crew (didn’t go above or beyond but polite and accommodated to simple requests). Plenty of meals/snacks and drinks offered."
Cons: "The seats barely recline backward which really meant I was basically upright trying to sleep for 14 hours on one leg and 6 hours on the next. My luggage was lost, despite being promised it would be delivered that day I had to wait 24 hours."

Cons: "Headphones- only one channel."

Pros: "The service as usual on Qatar is excellent"
Cons: "2-2-2 setup is old style for business class and while the seats were nice it means either you are stuck by the window or need to move to let others out in the aisle"

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

Pros: "the new seating in Business Class is very comfortable and so similar, although slightly less spacious, than First on some carriers. Crew is top class. Doha is a great airport too. I prefer it to Dubai."

Pros: "Crew was very accommodating"

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "No"

Pros: "Good Service.Efficient"
Cons: "No Phone charging facilities on back of the seat unlike other Qatar aircraft."

Cons: "The new Q suites in business are GREAT!"

Pros: "Great crew, aircraft etc"
Cons: "General - King Hamad airport is brand new and yet there still aren't enough gates to comfortably service all QA aircraft."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Food was good, and the crew were very patient and polite - went out of their way to make us comfortable."
Cons: "The aircraft seemed to be really old. The entertainment system on the seat I was allotted did not work, and I had to change seats. In the new seat, the entertainment system worked, but the seat didn't recline, and I had to change seats again - from an initially allotted aisle seat, to a middle seat. Also, the food service time was weird - we got a full lunch about an hour before we landed, which didn't make sense, and had to wait almost 5 - 6 hours between brunch and our next meal - a movie snack. Most passengers were famished by the time the lunch was served. Also, why was there no wifi?"

Pros: "The staff at Qatar Airways did everything they could to make this flight one of the most enjoyable of my entire life. The food was well prepared and exceeded my expectations. I also enjoyed that the food was served at times that minimized the impact of the time change."
Cons: "The movie and TV options were impressive; however, in-flight WiFi and power would have been convenient and improved the entertainment on board the flight."

Pros: "The entertainment was reasonable, I enjoyed the festive choices."
Cons: "Screaming babies, obese people sat next to me, water rationing, not a pleasant experience. Arrived sleep deprived and dehydrated. I have much better experiencs on a visit to Australia - this was my third time this year!"

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

Pros: "Good service/Crew food quality and choice good."
Cons: "Need more choice of British TV Programmes rather than American"

Pros: "Same as earlier flight"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everything....The service,the food,the in-flight entertainment(so many films to chose from) the flight attendants were brilliant,the flight was smooth it went by so fast as though time didn't exist.I recommend Qatar Airways to everybody."
Cons: "Can't find any fault...Sorry!"

Pros: "Good crew, fair choice of food and drinks and served whenever you want it. Good array of entertainment on offer but our flight was a 'sleeper' so after a fumble with the controls and the limited new releases, I opted to read instead. Not sure we like the Dreamliner configuration and levels of comfort more than the 777 or Airbus offerings but it was fine."
Cons: "A couple on our flight decided it was OK to have their 4-year old run around the cabin shrieking and causing a lot of fuss. Most of us in the cabin complained but these parents were pathetically weak and elected to allow it to continue. No sleep... spoiled experience.. miserable flight in this respect. Terrible Business Lounge 'Aspire' in Gatwick; dirty and poorly equipped - not even Prosecco on offer without paying £5 for a small glass. Qatar should stop using this dreadful place. Crew seemed to have stopped referring to the passengers by name and offer a less-personalised service in Business than we have become accustomed to. The food choices while good, have been paired back as have the selection of wines."

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."

Pros: "Nothing much."
Cons: "I think airplane was small in Doha to Amritsar sector . There are not too many flights"

Pros: "Attention to detail. Very professional."

Pros: "Nothing was spectacular."
Cons: "No lounge in Philadelphia took my Priority Pass. On the flight, the woman in front of me threw her chair back without asking and almost had hot coffee all over me. When I asked her to put her chair up, she got mad. She went to staff to insist she could put her chair back. I showed them that I was indeed in a back brace for a health condition and that I needed opportunities to move and shift, cross legs to release tension, etc. Staff sided with the rude woman, who, given the chance to move to an equal seat on the opposite aisle where she could recline, refused to move. I was very frustrated and have never been treated with such discrimination regarding my health concerns."

Pros: "Crew were very helpful and courteous"

Pros: "Polite crew, food was pretty good."
Cons: "Did not have the duty free item I pre-ordered. I asked the crew 4 times about it, four times because they said that they would check but they never got back to me to tell me that it was out of stock; until I pressed the issue."

Cons: "Did not make this flight."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Excellent"

Pros: "Everything was good - food, entertainment, on time."

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: "Excellent service from check in to disembarkation. I was surprised at the amount of leg room, as being a 6+ footer it has always previously been an issue, but not with Qatar."
Cons: "Only downside was the lack of the free traveller pack, eye shade and ear plugs, sleep was denied as I could not block out the sound of the very talkative travellers behind me."

Pros: "crew was excellent, very attentive"
Cons: "food - i am not a fussy eater but it's as if qatar tries do please too many tastes and does not suceed at any. why not have middle eastern food choices too? but then i guess you can't argue with the price"

Pros: "All good thank you + food and crew and entertainment"
Cons: "All good thanks"

Cons: "Problems when boarding. Some real upset customers at Valencia Airport who had too much baggage. Another proposal: Provide Fanta :-)"

Pros: "Great crew. Great seats"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by half an hour. Mainly due to limited carryon space. During check in we offered to check in carry on luggage, but were told it would be an additional cost! If they would have checked it in that would have saved 15 minutes easily"

Pros: "It was all really good, as always when flying with Lufthansa"
Cons: "Can always do without delays"

Pros: "We got two drinks, I had an empty seat next to me which made things more comfortable"
Cons: "Add an entertainment system, better food, there shouldn’t be a long wait to get a drink after your meal and maybe serve water with the meal. There wasn’t too many shops in the airport"

Cons: "bus to the airplane was too warm and had to wait 10 minutes before actually letting us off"

Pros: "Service and hospitality. On dot service with no major delays."

Pros: "Lufthansa is just the best. The flight crew was so pleasant the entire trip and they work very hard to make sure the passengers are comfortable. The food was even good! Lots of perks included--free wine, beer, etc. along with headsets for the movies."

Cons: "Lufthansa’s service counter in Munich was helpful with locating baggage and unfamiliar with transit rules."

Pros: "The crew were very considerate. Also they have the best baby beds we have seen so far"
Cons: "The entertainment system was glitchy."

Pros: "the flight from Frankfurt to Chicago was delayed by an hour. we have missed our connecting flight to Omaha. We were at the gate 8 minutes prior to departure, but United closed the gate right before our noses. Not cool. Horrible experience. My guess is that United has given our seats to someone else. After all United did the same thing to use once before. We will not travel United/Lufthansa again."
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "wine"
Cons: "no screens"

Pros: "coffee"
Cons: "boarding was chaotic"

Pros: "Lounge was very clean"

Cons: "We missed our flight because of schengen visa as we booked our flight through your app you also didn't help us about schengen visa that we' need"

Pros: "Crew looked after me after a family took up a whole row including my designated seat. I need up with the back row to myself so could put my feet up & chill after a less than pleasant 5+ hours wait at Munich!"

Pros: "All the full service airlines are pretty good in the air. But what sets apart Lufthansa is it's ground staff. On the previous occasion I had left behind my waist bag on the seat containing passports, cash and cards. Their lost and found desk retrieved it quickly, absolutely intact. On the last occasion, my mother in law, who is over 85 was taken care of very well at not only Delhi but especially at the Frankfurt airport. I must truly acknowledge young lady Jessica's efforts, in ensuring that everything was handled very caringly by her personally, for an old lady at the Frankfurt airport."

Pros: "I liked size of the lavatory ,food"
Cons: "I didn’t like selection of movies and seat wasn’t that comfortable"

Cons: "Is too hot in to the plane"

Pros: "Ok"

Pros: "Very comfortable flight with plenty of food, drink, entertainment and good service. Flight left on time."

Cons: "Take off was very scared"

Pros: "Check in was swift and efficient. Boarding was organised and flight attendants were friendly and efficient."

Cons: "The flight was delayed . When we arrived in Frankfurt, there was a quie of 200m . After waiting 10 minutes, they asked us to go to other passport control . We had to walk onother 10 minutes to get there ."

Pros: "I flew premium economy from Hong Kong to Frankfurt on the A340-600. The crew was excellent, attentive and friendly. They always have a great attitude and this has been consistent with my previous experiences with Lufthansa. The seat and meal were average for premium economy, but the crew more than made up for it."
Cons: "The seats were quite hard and lacking in padding in premium economy. The meal was average and nothing to bring home to."

Pros: "We were traveling to cancun, the best part is we picked up our bags just in our final destination."

Pros: "Crew was alright"
Cons: "Frankfurt Airport unfriendly and depressed as usual."

Cons: "Quite satisfiedoverall"

Cons: "My seat did not recline, the seatback was dirty, the seats were very thin, and I could feel every movement from the person behind me. There was no in-flight entertainment, no USB ports or outlets."

Cons: "Cancelled then delayed then had to stay in Frankfurt and was a day late"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Nothing to mention"

Cons: "More comfortable seats."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "THEY GAVE ME A BROKEN SEAT AND THEY GOT ANGRY AGAINST ME, EVEN THOUGH IT WAS UNSAFE"

Pros: "it would be a lie to say i liked anything"
Cons: "everything by alot"

Pros: "Kinda odd flying backwards...."
Cons: "Onboard entertaiment and food was just awful. UAE's version of Ryanair."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable in economy and entertainment system was excellent."
Cons: "Crew didn’t seem happy to be on board. Baggage was substantially delayed and both take off and taxiing after landing were delayed by approximately an hour each."

Pros: "The most impressive service found was the baggage arrival on time despite the short transient time in Abu Dhabi. In most airline this would be missed and will arrive the next flight."

Pros: "Plane was fine"
Cons: "The bus took forever to reach the plane. Food quality was poor"

Cons: "14 hours connection time and they don't offer hotel/meal accommodation that airlines like Qatar Airways do. I inquired about the hotel within the airport and it costs $300 for 8 hours. Ridiculous. There is no place to sleep properly in the airport, I saw people laying down on the floor."

Pros: "That flight was sublime.The 787 business layout excellent,the crew excellent as well as the food and drinks.Again very surprised after previously read bad reviews...."
Cons: "Again pyjama on business class will have equalised Qatar business class.Well done,otherwise,Etihad."

Pros: "Crew excellent,food excellent,was very surprised after reading some bad reviews on the net."
Cons: "Having pyjama to wear will have equalised Qatar business class."

Pros: "Crew was excellent food was good."
Cons: "sea food"

Cons: "Crew was very rude when giving veg meals. Even though we had confirmed veg meals multiple times with the airline prior to boarding, they still did not know that we had a specially requested Meal. After notifying the crew of this, one member gave us an extra meal. Another extremely rude staff member then proceeded to yell at us for eating meal. This was extremely uncalled for and has severly ruined the reputation of this airline in our eyes. The customer should still be addressed with some common courtesy and not be treated as if they are beneath the crew members, as if we are at fault for the crew's own carelessly stupid mistakes and lack of organization and proper communication"

Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Service could have been better"

Cons: "The crew is the most arrogant and ill mannered from all the other international airlines I have flown with - so please be ready for a very unwelcome experience. I had also worded this out as a complain to them, but received a very lukewarm and uninterested reply."

Pros: "Seats near me were empty"
Cons: "There was no vegetarian food. This is a big thing. The stewardess walked past me although I was waiting to buy from duty-free."

Pros: "Good quality overall from Etihad"
Cons: "Selection of movies/tv was pretty dire and the wifi was awful."

Pros: "Well, it got me from Point A to Point B I guess"
Cons: "You cannot book seats in advance which is fine but one would expect that if you have 3 seats on one reservation, you would at least be seated together - nope 3 window seats all over the plane. Boarding was delayed for no reason. Bags took (no exaggeration) about 1.5 hours to come. And it is a hot mess with no carts"

Pros: "I had a really good asigned seat"
Cons: "Still no Harry Potter films"

Pros: "Overall service"
Cons: "I had to check in my cabin bag"

Pros: "Boarding in this time was quick, flight was delayed by almost 45 minutes but pilot made time and we were only 10 to 15 minutes late landing into Singapore. The only redeeming quality was the nice gentleman next to me who was helpful."
Cons: "Food was quite mediocre to be honest."

Cons: "As above"

Cons: "Poor food quality. When long haul involves 4 flights in total MUCH more variety is required. When the snacks are predominantly cheese based, then that's repeated x4 Entertainment was poor. Not enough comedy, not enough documentaries and again by the 4 th flight, well just try to sleep as you've done all the good movies"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "- Very noisy and old airplane - Since it's old, the legroom in economy was poor and the business class was looking like it was built in the 80s. It was really cramped even in the business class - If you bring your own headphones, make sure they're noise cancelling since it's noisy on the plane - And if you bring your own headphones, you need those old 2 pin style connectors as well. The ones that Ethiad give you are super low quality. - Screen resolution on those screens is really bad, you can view every pixel on the screen and brightness doesn't go all the way up either."

Pros: "Not applicable"
Cons: "Lack of ability to cancel"

Pros: "Flight cancelled"

Pros: "Could not fault anything... great boarding. Service, food and flightsnothing...."
Cons: "Nothing..... the staff could not be more helpful if they tried"

Pros: "Shoud be treated good meal in flight."

Pros: "Aircraft was very good"
Cons: "Food very poor, staff mediocre"

Cons: "Very old aircraft"

Pros: "Flight was empty so had enough room next to my window seat"
Cons: "The food was an express snack! For a 2.5 hour flight, I think it’s seriously a shame!"

Pros: "Despite being nearly full it was comfortable. A fair choice on entertainment. Pleasent professional crew."
Cons: "There was a disagreement about my hand luggage. At check in it was agreed I coukd take it on board even though it was 8.9 kilos. Just before security they said no. After going back and forwards it was agreed. No fault of the airline there were several infant children close to my seat. At times it was annoying"

Pros: "The staff were great and very nice and helpful. It was very quiet in business class and we enjoyed that as economy was really crowded. The business class lounge was nice but needs a quiet area where people who have long layovers (like us) can lay down and have a darkened room for a bit of rest."
Cons: "The seat I was in was very hard and definitely needs more padding. My but was killing me during the flight but the cabin crew helped me by gin I got me 2blankets to fold up and sit on. The pillows are way too big and hard. I recommend paring them down the size they currently are. I was in seat 7-E. The business class bus was last to come so we waited for a long time to get to the plane. Most of economy was boarded before us. But not really a big problem as we did get on the plane with no problem."

Pros: "The new A380 was great"
Cons: "It was freezing cold Trays were left in front of passengers for too long Entertainment options were poor"

Pros: "SERVICE VERY GOOD"
Cons: "FOOD NO GOOD AT ALL"

Pros: "Crew friendliness"

Pros: "They didn't let me n my sister fly. Plus they took 3 hours to give our bags back."
Cons: "The attitude of the airline n everyone was poor. No help nothing from anyone."

Cons: "Very un.porfessional ."

Cons: "Delay of 2 hours in taking g off. We were all about n the plane. Not enough explanation given for this"

Pros: "I loved everything about the airline and the service provided except for one detail. The staff was great and very concerned with all passengers and their safety."
Cons: "Your average male isn't 150 lbs anymore. Seats are a little smaller than I experienced on previous trips. But still better than others."

Pros: "I thought 11 thousand dollars for 2 of us to fly was way to dear business class there was not a lot of room. Was my own fault I thought I was going on a380 but I woukd think twice about booking again for that price not worth it."

Cons: "Small seats-space limited."

Pros: "Food was great!!!"
Cons: "Crew not friendly!! Flight dropped cup and napkin never excused herself- smh"

Cons: "Crew needs to be more polite to passengers. I witnessed the crew being rude to multiple customers. Also the good needs work. I've traveled Etihad multiple times before and this experience has made me want to not fly them again"

Cons: "Same type of food. They ran out dinner so served the previous entree. Turn the crew light on for water. No air hostesses showed up."

Pros: "The was very poor they even offer use a drink on the first flight waited 15 mins for a coke that was died when the Gabe it"

Pros: "We ended up being delayed on the flight for about 3 hours due to fog in Abu Dhabi— delays are always frustrating but the crew was absolutely fantastic. The head of cabin crew personally came by to explain the problem and made he passengers feel welcome. Excellent service all around, especially when the situation is unpleasant but not within anyone’s control."

Cons: "Flight delay with no reason for two hours which made me cancel another flight and wait for another five hours in transit and pay a huge amount of money to reschedule flight. Medicore plane on a long flight of seven hours from abu dhabi to kuala lampur. Cabin crew not helping. Bad toilets."

Pros: "Was not rendered the service inspite of being charged"
Cons: "Custormer services"

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

Cons: "Punctuality. Time is off the essence."

Cons: "Better selection of videos"

Pros: "Crew was helpful, everythinf fine"
Cons: "The food was not so good. Bit cold.."

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

Pros: "The crew was very attentive, although it did help I was the only passenger in business and the food was definitely better than expected and an improvement on last time I flew with them, around a year ago."
Cons: "The cabin was looking a little tired."

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

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: "WONDERFUL FLIGHTV"
Cons: "NONE"

Pros: "Excellent service and on time performance."

Pros: "The staff and flight attendants were pleasant. Good entertainment and comfortable enough seats."
Cons: "I wasn't looking forward to the 11 hour flight, however the 4+ hour delay was a significant inconvenience. We were on the tarmac in Abidjan for almost an hour, before we were informed that there were some technical issues. We were told it was a minor issue, until clearly it was a large enough issue as a lot of time passed by. Air stopped flowing so many passengers including myself became uncomfortably hot and dehydrated. The flight attendants only came down the aisle once with water, which was not considerate enough given that the air stopped flowing. Finally close to two hours later passengers we instructed to disembark without mention of how long the wait would be. We re-boarded the flight after about an hour and only then were informed that there was not enough power to fly the plane. Once we took off the air flow returned and the flight overall was pleasant. While safety of course is a priority, especially for a long overnight flight, communication could have been much better."

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: "Food was of high standard Crew were polite and made the effort to make passengers feel comfortable"
Cons: "Boarding - Two last minute changes to departure gates, which confused the hell out of everyone. No announcement, just one staff shouting out to passengers."

Pros: "Not much, actually."
Cons: "None of the air stewardess has a smile on their face when talking to or serving passengers. I’m not sure they know how to engage with passengers in a friendly way. My entertainment screen wasn’t working. After resetting, it took them an hour to inform me that I could move to another seat if I wanted to, as they couldn’t resolve the problem with the screen. The food lacked in flavour and the sausage served for breakfast was undercooked."

Cons: "There was no entertainment. Breakfast was standard"

Pros: "The flight was bigger. So didn't feel so cramped up"
Cons: "The flight attendant were not helpful after ringing the bell multiply times I had to get up myself to get a glass of water. Entertainment not updated Food no change in menu"

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Nothing. Very smooth"

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: "the flight"
Cons: "extra charge , unable to book meal"

Pros: "Service"

Pros: "Although we had abou an hour delay, we arrived only thirty minutes after the scheduled time. The flight crew was very nice and friendly."

Pros: "Staff are friendly and pleasant. Seats are comfortable with more space than some airlines.Good choice of films."
Cons: "This was probably the worst boarding I have ever seen. They called the Paris flight while people were still boarding for Frankfurt. It was chaotic, with people struggling to find which line to be in. There was no visible guidance from Ethiopian ground crew. Eventually got in line. One guy checking boarding passes for both business and economy. Very slow with again no crowd control. Children were not given priority. Eventually many people went through business queue while others had been waiting in economy. Ground staff were standing around watching and not helping or communicating. Poor show from Ethiopian!"

Pros: "Ground crew communicated well. It was easy to check in; boarding was done on time and smoothly."
Cons: "No complaints, well done to the Ndjamena team."

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

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: "Everything was to my satisfaction."

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: "Not stopping in Blantyre"
Cons: "No comment"

Cons: "Lack of communication. The flight was delayed and boarding was very chaotic due to poor communication."

Cons: "That the Airline choose to take Russsian paid load, cargo. And decided to off load the Luggage of 25 passengers. Some of them even had connecting Flights. Luggage tags were not matching with the names, so it became difficult to actually track the bags. Not funny..."

Pros: "The customer service from crew members"
Cons: "The snacks"

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."

Cons: "I've been flying Ethiopian airlines over the last four weeks to nine African countries and can give an overall excellent rating. They're always on time. They however showed the same movie on all flights. The food quality and variety also need to be improved. Thanks"

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."

Pros: "Flight crew was nice and responded to problems well. More trash pick up and water service would have been nice as it was a thirsty, long flight. I was given more water when asked it just wasn’t freely offered."
Cons: "The arrangement of the airport was disconcerting. To get to your gate you have to pass a another security point that you can not leave. The area was akin to a cattle yard. No bathroom, water, or amenities. You had to stay in your pen until boarding. Duty free was not allowed and had to be purchased on the plane for an additional cost. Not to mention the whole stopping in Dublin, Ireland for fuel without notice. There was nothing in my paperwork about it and we were only told to stay in our seats for the next hour or so while they refueled. We didn’t do that on the flight over was that was worrying and we were given no additional information."

Pros: "Flight attendants were helpful and attentive."
Cons: "Boarding was fairly chaotic, there were no outlets for charging in the business class, entertainment limited."

Pros: "Airplane"
Cons: "Waiting for customer service"

Cons: "The plane from Entebbe to Addis Ababa was very old with tight seating."

Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Check in was a joke in Dublin, only 22 pax and they did a full team talk to start despite everyone bein there. In LAX they parked the plane in the middle of no where, and waited 30 mins before debark started, as the plane was so far away the terminal it took an hour for the bags. Food was horrible on both flights"

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"

Pros: "The crew members are very friendly, always smiling and attentive."
Cons: "The entertainment system needs an upgrade. Touch screens unresponsive."

Cons: "Rude Staff"

Pros: "Great entertainment center and seat back video."
Cons: "No Wifi available"

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