The crew were courteous, addressing us by name and nothing was too much trouble."
Cons: "Boarding at Bali Airport is chaotic. This can hardly be attributed to Qatar Airways but this needs to be sorted out. When boarding began, it started with "Group 1" rather than business and other priority customers. It ended up rather chaotic with boarding halted at the end of the escalator causing a very uncomfortable situation as people struggled to get off the escalator."

It also took 3 hours because of UAE and Qatar :("

First meal service from Doha to Washington (IAD) took nearly 2.5 hours to reach my home after the service started. The male attendants were sloppy, not well organized. When asked why it takes so long, the answer I got: "We were not prepared to meet the customer's preferences." But that does not excuse the long delay in serving row 36."

Cons: "Boarding was late and they change the number of the gate without telling the passengers. The seats were uncomfortable."
Pros: "Excellent staff."
Cons: "Very cramped, even for economy."
Cons: "I will never forget Turkish airlines again. They stole our money. We were at our flight on time but they wouldn't let us board. They then said we were no shows and cancelled all our remaining flights with no refund. This ended up costing us around $3000. We don't have this kind of money and I don't know how we will pay rent next month."
Pros: "the onboard entertainment system is poor: you don't have your personal screen, and the only programmes available are the saftey video and airline's ads. The flight was delayed for 20 minutes at the start however it arrived on time. So that was not really an issue."

Pros: "Good Food. Polite treatment of Customers. Good Luggage allowance Lots of "little extras.""

Cons: "Bording was delayed because of inbound flight delays."

Cons: "Boarding. The gates were cheep changing. Poor room between seats."
Cons: "Didn't happen. My first leg to Athens was canceled which created a humongous headache since it ended up canceling my return flights. Air Canada had to put me on completely new flights there and back. I think this has taught me to go directly through an airline. Justfly was not helpful. Neither was Turkish airlines."
Pros: "Flew JFK to BOM -business class and back. Very impressed. Excellent service, food and punctuality."
Cons: "Rude reception staff at the Istanbul Turkish airlines lounge. Scowling all the time, unhelpful, condescending attitude. Should be fired. The lounge however was huge, beautiful and had excellent food."
Pros: "Entertainment options good"
Pros: "Food and service is excellent. Istanbul lounge is great."
Cons: "Delayed in both directions. Happens. But zero announcements. Zero. Staff didn't know what was going on. Complete chaos."
Cons: "Had a layover in Toronto. From Toronto we flew to Istanbul and then Venice. While waiting in line to board in Toronto, I was told my carry-on luggage was too big and needed to be put under. I asked MULTIPLE times where my luggage would be- either Istanbul or Venice (final destination) and EVERY time I asked, I was told my luggage would be waiting for me in Venice. Once we arrived in Istanbul I asked AGAIN if my carry-on luggage was here or if it would be in Venice and I was told it would be in Venice. Once we arrived in Venice, my luggage was nowhere to be found. The lost luggage crew (and 90% of the people in Venice) were completely rude and acted like we were a huge inconvenience for them. (I've heard that many Europeans cannot stand Americans, but we were not being rude or obnoxious at all to anyone- we just wanted a quiet, romantic vacation.) So safe to say that it was an extremely rough start. We were in Venice for the Glass Art Society Conference in Murano and due to my luggage being lost, had missed the first day and a half, therefore wasting hundreds of dollars. Luckily my boyfriend's phone worked in order to spend our first two days of vacation (not to mention the amount of money spent on international calling costs) tracking down my luggage, but again dealt with completely rude people who barely helped us with any answers and even hung up on us multiple times (and I'd like to add that despite my frustration, I made sure that I was not speaking rudely one bit). The best answers we received were from the people at the Istanbul airport who told us that Venice received my luggage hours before I even called Istanbul- which I do not understand why the Venice airport did not tell me this because I spent all day speaking with them. Once I called back the Venice airport to confirm what the Istanbul airport told us, they said (once again rudely) that they called me on my phone but did not answer (which I already told them that my phone did not have any service and to call my boyfriend's phone number). So to sum up: I will never be flying to Venice ever again."
Pros: "Food was decent and the crew was great."
Cons: "The air conditioning did not work in the front part of the cabin. I asked about it but nothing changed. It was very uncomfortable for everyone in that part of the plane. The back was cool front was miserable."
Pros: "I liked everything, from the inflight catering, check in, etc! I had to cut short my trip to Istanbul due to a family issue- they couldn’t do enough to facilitate a flight home at short notice at a minimum cost and most importantly expedited my return with the minimum of hassle- thank you Turkish!"
Cons: "No negative points to make."
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "Need More premier economy seats"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, good food"
Cons: "Shake all the time,vomited"

Cons: "I wanted to look out the window while flying over Greenland but we were asked to keep the window closed for sleeping passengers. That view of the northern sea and ice cap is Phenomenal and not to be missed if at all possible!! I wanted to wake everyone up to watch it and they could go back to sleep later...;-) Boarding also took a long time...we left 30-45 minutes late."
Pros: "Excellent crew service & food/beverage offerings"
Pros: "As always from Turkish Airlines, you get good service even for a relatively short flight. Puts other national carriers to shame."

Pros: "Punctual in terms of reaching destination, all else average."

Cons: "I have a trip from Manchester to Riyadh and I have a stop in Istanbul. Manchester plane was delayed one hour, no problem, but I arrived in Istanbul at the right time and the gate was open I gave them my ticket. They told me that the sestem moved your seat to the second plane but now the plane is open. ? I waited 6 hours at Ataturk airport and had a working meeting I could not attend"
Cons: "Boarding was very annoying because when you go through security they make you feel like a total criminal for no reason. Checking our laptops as if we have something to hide. We already went through 3 security checks prior to boarding the flight. Security staff was extremely rude and inconsiderate for peoples belongings."
Cons: "They made us wait for 2 hours out in the open on a winter night. They wouldn't let us in the terminal. It was outrageous. Everyone was extremely rude."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient and the crew were nice."
Cons: "the seating is horrible. it was the tightest seating I've ever experienced."
Pros: "Salimos a tiempo . El business es muy confortable"
Cons: "La comida horrible . No se limpian los baños"

Pros: "The best airline ever! Super friendly crew and staff, great customer service and nice planes. Love KLM!"
Cons: "It's KLM. What else do you need to know."
Cons: "The only complaint I had was that it was very warm on the flight (and I usually get cold on flights), and in the seats we had there weren't fans above the seats. A few rows up they had fans, so apparently you have to pay extra for air... This wouldn't be a big deal on a short domestic flight, but for an international flight it was a long time to be uncomfortable!"
Pros: "Klm's consistantly high standards in everything they do."
Cons: "Still don’t have my luggage yet"
Pros: "15 years ago I told myself not to fly Delta anymore. But these 2 flights Detroit to Amsterdam and back changed my mind. I enjoyed the flight very much and I'm looking forward to the next one."

Pros: "Overall KLM experience is good"
Cons: "Food quality was mediocre for a business class flight."

Pros: "Nice aircraft"
Cons: "Unexpected refueling stop. 2 hr delay Lost connection Reached destination after 18 hr delay"
Pros: "Being fed was amazing and watching free TV was great!"
Cons: "I wish there were personal fans because it got uncomfortably hot sandwiched between people"

Cons: "A lot of delays, on both flights. We spent twice as much time waiting than flying."
Pros: "well mannered and attentive crew - good supply of complimentary food/drink - good over all comfort"

Pros: "Helpful and kind crew"
Cons: "I wish there was WiFi"
Cons: "Long haul flight made pleasant by KLM"
Cons: "The check in desk was late opening & the carry on luggage size was smaller than advertised on their website, so it had to be put in the hold. Open on time to prevent less stress to travelers & give more accurate information about cabin luggage."
Pros: "Very pleased with KLM - efficiency all round and especially the baggage handling at Schipol swhere I had 20 minutes to transfer and my baggage came back with me to the UK which is no mean feat given the hustle and bustle of such a large airport"
Cons: "No downsides at all"
Pros: "They considered my reguest of vegiterian food."
Cons: "I have no complaints."
Pros: "Everything is alright"
Pros: "Boarding agent extra effort to improve my seating!"
Cons: "Food amount less than expected."
Pros: "Nothing to mention"
Cons: "Crew was rude when I asked if there was a vegetarian option for the snack. I did request special meals for the trip. Even if they did not have a vegetarian option, they don't need to be rude!! Boarding was ridiculous. we were supposed to form a line and wait. Would have been a lot better if they boarded by seat numbers. Also they made me check in my fairly small and light carry on bag resulting in its contents arriving broken!"
Cons: "Landlords gave an unpleasant service! Which continued with late of 50min of the flight, they didn’t do anything to help/ to provide the passengers the answers. The food was cold It was comfort place to sit. Bad experience with KLM"
Pros: "MCR airport Mert & Greet parking was smooth and efficient."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours due to bad weather. Additional baggage payment to Air Baltic did not show up on the KLM system and we had to pay again. Nowhere to address this with Air Baltic even in Tallin. Handlers seem uninterested and refer us to ‘the website to address the issue.....’"
Cons: "I’ve traveled a lot internationally and this was the WORST flight I’ve ever had to endure. I felt like I was being tortured and didn’t sleep at all and so slept when getting into Amsterdam rather than being able to explore the city. I was out $200 for the Airbnb (could’ve stayed in the airport cheaper) and $200 for a dinner cruise I slept through. NEVER AGAIN"
Pros: "Very attentive crew. Attended to needs immediately. Took a lot of time with each person when someone had something to say."
Cons: "The seat I had with no seats in front of me was very small. Much smaller than the other economy seats because the tray table and video screen were in the armrests. Paid extra for the legroom by ended up losing it side to side. Really had to squeeze into the seat."
Pros: "Very friendly onboard personnel - I really had kind of homy feeling."
Pros: "The efficiency of the whole process"
Cons: "The cabin attendants need to be warmer and more friendly"
Pros: "The crew were fantastic! The one meal from Athens to Cairo was excellent, the other two meals weren’t too bad but not as good as the first one."
Cons: "The security in Cairo was really a joke."
Pros: "Crew were very good. Comfortable flight."
Cons: "Choice of movies could be much better."
Pros: "Nice aircraft and comfortable seating in economy with a good selection of music and movies on the seat back entertainment. Business class was mostly empty and looked very nice and roomy. They should upgrade their frequent flyers the way other airlines do to fill those empty seats and generate the good PR that results. The food was good in my opinion, and the Ethiopian coffee is great. Affordably priced tickets was the selling point for choosing them. They are a young airline and while they go through the motions of being a modern service-oriented airline, but alas for the most part they aren't there yet."
Cons: "We've flown a few Ethiopian Air flights now and while the flight attendants are nice, they aren't always on top of things and paying attention to the needs of the passengers. Not as helpful or attentive as we're used to. Boarding is chaotic and the overnight transfer at Addis Ababa is a total mess. If you get to leave through the airport in the early morning things are relatively painless, but what a nightmare of pushing and shoving chaos when it's busy. The hotels they put you up in are mediocre at best. Last week we enjoyed a long wait for the bus ride to the hotel, cold food when we arrived, and a nice hard bed to "sleep" in. We probably won't fly Ethiopian Air if we have to overnight in Addis Ababa again. I'm willing to pay up to fly another airline and skip the overnight as it's just not worth the hassle."
Cons: "Poorly organised meal service"
Cons: "They know better than me"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and professional"
Cons: "45 minutes late departure"
Pros: "After the Kigali Addisababa segment this was vastly superior with a newer aircraft"
Pros: "Excellent crew, approachable and helpful. Seat was comfortable with legroom and headrest at the right height"
Cons: "Better selection of videos"
Pros: "Crew was super nice. The woman at check-in gave us bulkhead seats so my friend and I could sit together. With this, we were able to board first to get plenty of space in the overhead bins. Food and flight entertainment were free and definitely better than average."
Pros: "Your crew were great."
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."
Pros: "WONDERFUL FLIGHTV"
Pros: "Crew was good. Aircraft was fresh and clean."
Cons: "The movie selection is very mediocre"
Pros: "Yes.seat was just ok but not quiet comfortable"
Cons: "I think Ethiopian is reasonably good.I travelled to Seattle via delhi .from delhi to sea I travelled by Ana the reason was the fare of Ethiopian (Enugu to Seattle,round trip)was much higher and also you spend 37 hours before u reach your destination,it is too long.why can't u fly to usa direct ,then"
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "they woke me up in the middle of the night to give me food.."
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."
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "We were delayed for extremely long"
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."
Pros: "I liked the services of the air hostess: they were very polite. The flight was also very comfortable and enjoyable."
Cons: "The person who gives information should speak the English language portion slowly and clearly for better understanding of passengers"
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. 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"
Cons: "We had requested vegetarian meals, which were not provided on either leg of the Ethiopian Airlines flight. In addition, we had to pay an extra baggage fee and the payment process required us to wait for 45 minutes at the check in desk while the agents tried to sort out a problem wiht their computer system. They claimed that the problem was with the integration of their system with SAA's system."
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!"

Cons: "No complaints, well done to the Ndjamena team."
Pros: "Very comfortable airline with enough leg room.The crew were very professional and nice."
Pros: "I was a bit hesitant to fly Ethiopian Air for such a long flight (Dublin to LAX) however it turned out to be the best leg of multi-segment trip (all other flights were Aer Lingus or Delta and Ethiopian Air was far superior to both of those carriers). Flight attendants were friendly, the physical space was comfortable and spacious, the food was plentiful and delicious. Movies offered were relatively new and the IFE worked well. This flight is a continuation from Addis Ababa to LAX so when we boraded in Dublin most people were already onboard. It was a bit difficult to find space in the overhead bins but with a little rearranging of smaller packages by other passengers, we were able to fit our carry-ons in the overhead bin near our seats."

When I mentioned the ground crew, who had long conversations with the people checking in, he said it was not their fault at all. It was not impressive."
