Pros: "Nice trip"

Cons: "The passenger next to me had a bad cough during the whole flight. Wish I could have moved."
Pros: "Attentive service, had a special treat for me as it was my birthday."
Pros: "I flew Emirates for the first time. You guys rock. The stewardesses very quick to help with their smiley faces. The Asian vegetarian meal was okay."
Cons: "Why did I not fly with you guys before???"
Pros: "The entertainment options are excellent and legspace on the aircraft is good."
Cons: "For a 14 hour flight there are no water bottles provided. You need more than the couple of cups of water provided on the flight, and it is not practical to keep on asking for more water from the crew. Quality of food (Asian veg) was not very good."
Cons: "Front legs little short"
Pros: "Once again, the food and entertainment selections were what I liked the most about the flight."
Cons: "The crew were a bit impatient with the passengers. There was a lady travelling with an infant, and she was not sure how to fasten the seat belt on the baby. It seemed to me that the stewardess was impatient in dealing with the passenger."
Cons: "1. I had put in a request for vegetarian meals, but my request was ignored. At meal time, I was given a choice between chicken and lamb. I again asked for vegetarian, and was told they didn't have any. The white guy in the next row asked for the same, and it magically appeared. The attendant noticed my shocked stare and then gave me a veggie meal too. 2. On a 16 hour flight, our tv screens didn't work. None of the attendants even came by to check, even after repeatedl requests. 3. My 6 and 9 year old kids would like to know why they didn't get any of the courtesy toys/coloring books that were given to other similar age kids. I don't want to tell them it was due to their skin color. 4. Even a request for water turned into a tug of war after we had waited for almost 20 minutes. I finally poured it out myself."
Cons: "Check-in counter staffs in Dubai are poorly trained and do not have service-mind at all."
Pros: "The ground and on-board staff was courteous and efficient. The specious seating and clean men's room were added bonus."
Cons: "Coffee was ok, but could be better."
Pros: "1. Check-in counter staff is nice 2. Entertainment systems are nice."
Cons: "1. Issue with crew, one of crew member forgot to serve food and after reminding they did not have vegetarian option hence have to stay without food, disappointed with kind of service even after booking ticket with competitive price and providing meal choice in advance. Somehow they managed a vegetarian meal but didn't provide any cutlery to eat which is highly unacceptable. Apologies don't serve any purpose if the passenger remains hungry just because of ignorant staff. 2. About entertainment option, less new bollywood movie choices"
Cons: "The plane was very messy and not well kept throughout the flight. The fight attendants expressed levels of frustration with passengers as if we were bothering them. Me and the the passenger next to me lost picture during a movie that were watching and had to have our monitors reset."
Cons: "It took 90 minutes in the line to check our luggage despite checking in on line. There were lots of Emirates personnel but only few at the counters, others were mingling among the passengers and being useful."

Cons: "Food quality and service were mediocre at best"
Pros: "Crew was amazing and seats were comfortable."
Pros: "nice crew"

Cons: "the food was a bit bland. Selection of movies very limited"
Pros: "casual, relaxed en mass boarding. not overbooked. very accommodating attendants."
Cons: "Would have loved knowing more about the baggage weight constraints...am sure they were in your communications somewhere I just missed them & therefore also missed my bags making my connection because they had to be checked...a bummer."
Pros: "Did manage to get priority transfer which I requested from Dubrovnik but was told. “We do not do those”"
Cons: "Rest of the flight was bearable nothing write about. Typical cheap alow cost flight"
Pros: "On time. Friendly crew. Great seat with space."
Pros: "Everything. Lufthansa is still the best."
Pros: "Crew is top notch!!"
Cons: "Just as first flight, old plane, cramped seats."
Pros: "The flight was one hour late to leave Seattle and we had to run in Frankfurt airport for 20 minuts to catch the next flight and one luggage did not make it . No more"
Cons: "Need AC outlets and TVs"
Cons: "You lost my luggage !!"
Pros: "The staff and food were exceptional!"
Pros: "No problems and great food service"
Cons: "The boarding process was not good."
Pros: "Needed to cancel trip - had insurance I thought was good"
Cons: "it sucked !!!!!! someone had to die before they covered cancellation"
Pros: "Wasn’t Lufthansa, was Singapore Airline from Ny to Frankfurt.Was excellent definitely."
Pros: "I was assigned a seat at the gate discovered upon boarding the I had the best seat in the house! This has never happened for me before so it really made the flight. Thank you."
Cons: "Everything was good. Pleasantly surprised by the food."
Pros: "I can’t say enough about the Lufthansa staff- we ran to our gate because our connecting flight was late, and we were greeted by a warm and smiling face who said “It’s alright, don’t run, take your time, we’re waiting for you.” Onboard the crew was phenomenal- Every. Single. One. I have always felt as a burden to crew if I asked for extra water or an extra blanket- not on this flight, not with this crew. They came around multiple times per hour during an 8hr and 20min flight, offering various beverages and checking on everyone. I can’t thank them enough for how caring they were to everyone on board. The captain as well was very professional and had a kind spirit when he spoke. Best experience I’ve ever had- (and I travel multiple times per year!)"
Pros: "boarding area was bit confusing"
Pros: "The wellcoming on board."
Cons: "The Long bus drive from the Airport building to the aitcraft."
Pros: "Firstly, the food was great!"
Pros: "Had a very comfortable journey. Nice and friendly crew. Amenities at Frankfurt were excellent."
Cons: "1 person working the service desk. I had a question about our connecting flight from Frankfurt and I was told to call the 1-800 number. When I went to check my bag the woman was very rude and asked me "why do I think I can check two bags?" and questioned my Star Alliance premium silver status, demanding I show her my card (I have no card). My friend was flying with me and she was told that her carry on, mind you had flown to and within europe, was too big for the overhead storage and she had to pay 90 euros to check it and the woman held her boarding pass and wouldn't give it to her. we waited in line at the service desk for over 40 minutes so that she could pay. We arrived to the airport 2.5 hours early to eat and shop for souvenirs. We barely made it in time to get to our gate because of the inefficiencies of Lufthansa. 1 person working a service desk for a large airport is unacceptable, especially when they are 8-10 waiting to scan your baggage and not helping out at all. I had a wonderful flight to Europe on Lufthansa and was absolutely appalled at the attitudes of the airport staff and their lack of customer service."
Pros: "The sandwich and wine were nice...and prompt, too"
Cons: "Was told to check in at wrong desk by databoard. This caused delay..."
Pros: "Munich airport is very nice and clean."
Cons: "The plane was late arriving and we had to sit on the tarmac after we got to Frankfurt for a while which made us only have 15 minutes to go through customs and get our connecting flight. The staff would not let us get off first on the plane even though I told them we were very very late. Ridiculous to have to wait for people to stand in the aisles and get their baggage from above. This makes others late and very inconsiderate. Charge people that use the overhead compartment!!"
Pros: "Our experience flying with Lufthansa was very pleasant. The overall process of making connecting flights through Frankfurt was much easier than we had anticipated. The cabin crew was friendly and courteous. I will be flying Lufthansa again."
Cons: "I would appreciate the ability to check in and get seat assignments at least 2 days before the flight. The day before traveling can be fraught."
Pros: "Punctuality. Great attitude of flight crew. Very welcoming."
Pros: "E-mail notification on change of gate"
Pros: "If you can afford to fly business class, it is definitely worth the extra money. The flight, the crew, the comfort we're superb!"
Pros: "The flight itself was fine, about what you'd expect from a short-duration flight on a major airline."
Cons: "I wished to change to an earlier flight with plenty of seats available. the Lufthansa ticket agent stated the only way, as I had booked a "light" fare, was to pay a full-price one-way economy ticket--plus luggage--for about 380 euros with no credit for my current ticket. After booking a day-room at a local hotel, I checked in on-line and discovered for 115 euros I could have upgraded to business class, with luggage included, and been accommodated on schedule changes. My suggestion to Lufthansa is if they intend to rip their customers off it's best NOT TO LET THEM FIND OUT ON THEIR OWN WEBSITE, or if they're simply too incompetent to match marketing offers to their booking department they could save considerable income and reputation by closing the ticket office. As it was, the impression was a low-class money grab. It's not like they can count on their partnership with United to make them look good."
Pros: "Economy seats are not comfortable. The seat cushions are worn out and do not provide good support for long flights."
Pros: "fast, efficient, on time. Friendly crew"
Cons: "This airline has little respect for its customers. In the economy/coach cabin, they squeeze the seat distances to such an extent that, when the person in front of you leans their chair back, you cannot get out of your seat at an upright angle. You have to significantly bend your body. To not loose your balance, you have to grab on to the seat in front of you and that disturbs the other passenger. If they're sleeping, they can be woken up by that. Lufthansa does not care much for its passengers. Nor do many other companies, for that matter, but I think Lufthansa is taking things further than most airlines. It is a disgrace. Their brand is not what it once was."
Pros: "Staff was very attentive to the children. Ability to follow the flight with the cameras. Person in front of us leaned his seat back and I was unable to get out due to an injured left arm. He did agree to move forward when we requested."
Cons: "No choice on food. Bathroom ran out of toilet paper, even tho we had reported that it was getting low."
Pros: "Food was pretty darn good, and the crew was very generous with drinks."
Cons: "There was some metal box by my left foot that restricted my leg room even more than usual. But I'm not sure if there was anything that could have been done about that."
Pros: "Flight attendants were great, entertainment system top in its class."
Pros: "Lufthansa did put us up in a nice hotel after we missed our connecting flights."
Cons: "While the delays associated with the flight weren't Lufthansa's fault, they could have kept us better informed as to what the plan and potential alternatives were."
Pros: "everything was easy to use and set up from booking to landing. wonderful trip. This was my 1st big trip and 2nd time on a plane. Liked the movies on the plane. All the staff where helpful from gate to gate."
Pros: "I used to fly lufthansa for my europe travel for work about 15 years ago a lot and thought in recent years it may not have been as good but these flights made me appreciate Lufthansa anew. Crew extremely helpful and polite, always followed up to any requests. Instead of barking at us like United or American crew, they went out of their way to help my daughter get a makeshift icepack for some very painful bumps she got during our vacation. Crew also kept the bathrooms clean from time to time, which was a welcome relief for such a long flight. Desk staff/service desk also was helpful in directing us during the 5 hr layover to things at the airport itself that we could do. They also helped reprint the boarding pass and write down the baggage tags when security made me lose those by separating my wallet and boarding passes into mutliple bins."
Cons: "Phone service. When I tried to book my seats and meals, the lady kept getting things wrong, and ended up not getting me the seats I had specifically ended up asking for. So, when I arrived at the airport and printed my boarding cards, those were seats I did NOT want and all the service desks insisted that's what I asked for. No low carb meal option was surprising. Meal service sometimes felt like too close to each other else too far apart from snacks - didn't feel like we had enough time to digest and get some sleep, while at other times we were seeking out snacks.Overall good quality of food however."
Pros: "great food options good comfort"
Cons: "This was actually operated by United and as usual united service food and quality was way below the norm. Very disappointing."
Pros: "All was very proffessional"
Pros: "on time departure, early arrival, decent food, great entertainment options, smooth flying, friendly crew and gate personnel"
Cons: "Seats are thin and barely comfortable (just like every other airline's)."
Pros: "We arrived at our destination on time"
Cons: "Computer problems at airport. Waited about 45 minutes in line to check our bags. Plane left late. Very cramped seating."
Pros: "Plane was new and good"
Cons: "Flight was 4 hours delayed"
Pros: "Very old aircraft. Looked extremely run down and many things were broken."
Pros: "I got an aisle seat right near the bulkhead with so much leg room. There were so many free amenities. It was the biggest plane I'd ever seen - very well kept and clean. Crew was nice and quick with service."
Cons: "My flight was serviced by British Airways. The temperature in the cabinet was very warm and there were no fan controls. The seats are very narrow. Miserable 9hr flight from London to Denver"
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "The aircraft: too old! No charging ports, entertainment system horrible. The food was not super."
Pros: "Crew was super friendly."
Cons: "I wish I’d have an aisle seat, but flight was full."
Cons: "Heathrow is the worst airport when you have a passenger who needs a wheel chair."
Pros: "Warm welcome, on time and comfortable"
Pros: "Comfortable, good service and on time"
Cons: "The crew did not speak in Catalan. Leaving from Barcelona, I assume Catalan should be spoken in the plane."
Cons: "Male crew who served me on this flight was rude as he threw me the disembarkment cards in a hurry but treated the Caucasian passengers nicely. How snobbish! My family and I will never recommend British Airways to our friends"
Pros: "The ice cream bar served as a snack."
Cons: "The flight left late. It was one of the most turbulent flights I’ve ever taken-multiple people threw up, including my son 5 times. The in flight entertainment didn’t work and service wasn’t great."
Cons: "Have to pay for everything even soda and snacks"
Pros: "The quality of the plane was good and the movies were good. Also the blanket and pillow was nice."
Cons: "I was really cramped and couldn’t recline because the guy behind me was too tall and it amashes his legs, so I had to be uncomfortable for the entire flight."
Pros: "No entertainment on the flight"
Pros: "Nice aircraft! Very modern."
Pros: "Pilot kept us informed of delay status - gross delay b/c of French air traffic strike."
Cons: "Ran out of food, slowest beverage serve ever experienced. NO staff greeting passengers who were very late and missing connections (about 3/4 of passengers) insane and grossly inefficient boarding system was mass chaos - boarded passenger in buses by priority leaving some buses 90% empty with large crowds waiting to board."
Pros: "Crew did really well in their roles."
Cons: "BA are no different than all operators in the drive to put as many bums in as many seats as possible. News flash. Only so many sardines go in one tin. Make seats more comfortable and more leg room and we would pay the premium for that reputation as a caring, comfortable operator."
Cons: "Luggage lost!!"
Cons: "The crew could be quite curt at times"
Pros: "Friendly people-excellent ammenitties-great flight. A new & improved airline from prior experiences."
Cons: "Nothing-all was great."
Pros: "Comfortable seat and ample legroom. Drink before takeoff."
Cons: "The uncertainty of whether I would have a seat at all."
Pros: "Customer service."
Cons: "Entertainment need more movies"
Pros: "The crew were friendly, professional and extremely pleasant."
Cons: "I’m not a fan of the constant PA’s during the descent. Playing a video about arrival procedures for an airport is extremely superfluous. Nobody pays attention and you just have to follow the signs when you get there."
Cons: "Rude staff at the airport. Short overlay did not have enough time to get our bags and checkin again that was ridiculous to have to check in again!"
Pros: "Me and my husband were upgraded from world traveler plus to business class, which we are thankful for"
Cons: "We were unable to order special meal online and were told to contact onboard crew for meals. When we contacted them inflight, they said they don’t have meals!!! And we were left to starve the whole night, while food was served for all around us. The really shocking thing is none of the crew had the courtesy to offer some snacks or bread. These especially when we were seated in business class!"
Cons: "There was a new born next to me and actually it was difficult to sleep."
Pros: "Fast Boarding. Easy Airport"
Cons: "Very Rude & Disrespectful Crew"
Cons: "Flight canceled want able to rebook"
Cons: "As a Kenyan Passport Holder living in Canada on a PR status was denied right to travel to Kenya via LHR transit. WHY ? will you help us with our rights what compensation will help to alleviate the pain"
Cons: "Lounge needs updated."
Pros: "The best part of the Stuttgart to London trip is speed of getting through the Stuttgart Airport - no lines and very efficient. And the fact that it is a jet (my preference over turbo-props)."
Cons: "No entertainment connections. Not even free coffee, tea, or soda. Very no frill. Even a small bottle water and hand wipes would have been better than nothing. Not much interaction with crew."
Pros: "The staff were some of the friendliest I have encountered in recent traveling experiences. They were very attentive to every passenger."
Cons: "We only paid for economy seats, and unfortunately, it's hard to expect much more than what we got. The friendly service made up for the lack of comfort these seats provide."
Pros: "Quickly loaded full, huge plane. Excellent demeanor from stewards. Seats very comfortable in econ class. Were as on time as they could be. Superfast deplaning. Couldn't be happier."
Cons: "Not a thing"
Pros: "Overall flight better London to Beirut l"
Cons: "Long wait over"
Pros: "Food and entertainment was good."
Cons: "Most of the flight attendants were nice. However, on one flight a couple of them were rude. One made a comment "you are making their job hard". I was sitting across the aisle from my mother who is 80 years old and was getting her entertainment set up since she is technically challenged. I told him that I didn't mean to make his job hard. After that, he then smiled regularly to make up for the comment. Also, one of the flights we had to buy coffee, water, or anything other non-alcohol beverage we wanted to drink. Not sure why on one flight we didn't get free beverage service when all of the other BA flights provided it."
Cons: "1 hour delay on return journey on a packed flight, but at least that delay was in the airport and not sitting on a plane"
Pros: "Flight was on time and smooth"
Cons: "Television screens went off in the first hour of flight and never came back on. They ran out of the vegetarian pasta dish, because of this my kids didn't eat. Service overall was poor."
Pros: "Although there were some problems with the arrival of the flight into Gatwick, the captain came along the cabin explaining the difficulties and offering his sincerest apologies (although it was not his fault, nor the fault of BA). This was truly a British response to something like this. Also, I paid for a seat with extra legroom and the space I had was massive - well worth the investment for a 12+ hour flight."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic in Lima. It really can't be that hard to organize different lines for different parts of the plane."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seat for a business class"
Pros: "Staff where very pleasant."
Cons: "Airport check in was drastically understaffed. The worst I have experienced. Airplane seating was cramped."
Cons: "One flight attendant had so much perfume on every time she stopped by it was drowning our sinuses."
Pros: "Nothing good to say its an old plane, rubbish entertainment system no help by the British airway's staff not even in checkin when my girlfriend struggled to weigh bag the staff just looked and offered no assistance. Hardly came round to offer drinks meal was foul and the Sandwick was inedible. I will never fly British airways again I wrongly thought that they were a premier service how wrong was I"
Pros: "Great service and experience."
Cons: "The boarding was a little long."
Pros: "Free soft drinks. Average boarding speed. Was able to bring on my rather large carry on bag."
Cons: "Like the flight from Amsterdam to Philadelphia, the seats were extremely uncomfortable and wouldn't go back much at all. On this flight my tray was also broken so I couldn't ever put any drinks on it without them spilling everywhere. The flight attendants were the worst ones I have ever had on a flight. Very unpleasant and rude. They would barely pay attention to customers and would only gossip when they were making their rounds down the isles. One of them made an attempt to bump either my arm or my leg every time she walked paste me, not once apologizing. It was very clear that she was doing it on purpose. At one point she even kept bending over to get into one of her drawers on her cart and kept shoving her butt into my shoulder and in my face repeatedly without acknowledging me at all. I was returning from a trip overseas and my appearance was less than business casual but that is no excuse to treat me like that or any other customer riding on this airline. I enjoyed my flights with British Airways on my way to Europe. It's extremely unfortunate that these two airlines are sister companies and transfer people between them. From now on I will actively avoid taking any flights on a American Airlines unless I have absolutely no other option. Sadly, this may mean avoiding British Airways as well. It's sad when Allegiant Air offers better flights than such a reputable airline, such as this."
Cons: "Huge delay!!!!!"
Pros: "787-9 new aircraft with the total lack of space in economy, my worst transatlantic crossing in thirty years. DVT waiting to happen."
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Very disruptive journey -- but the crew was very professional and did a great job."
Cons: "Passangers spent the flight yelling, switching seats, ignoring safety rules. Very disruptive journey -- but the crew was very professional and did a great job."
Pros: "i could not contact momodo not in e-mail, telephone or chat momodo was real bad with solving problems and i will not recommend you with any way"
Pros: "wery slow working."
Cons: "The fod. Never Etiopian again."
Cons: "Staff behavior & regular check on entertainment system as my screen was not working in 9 hr long journey"
Pros: "The crew members were very accommodating and friendly. They do a wonderful job. When I told them that the power was not working in my seat and that I needed it for my CPAP (I call it my anti-snoring device), they arranged for me to move to another seat where the power worked for the CPAP. When the power did not work in the new seat for my laptop, they offered to let me charge it in a more powerful outlet near the galley."
Cons: "The power didn't work for my laptop. It did work for my CPAP device. Some of the seat control buttons were out of order."
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: "Flight delays with no info from staff. Food poorly prepared. No orderly queues - there is aggression with no intervention from staff. There is no need for two security checks when making connections in Addis. Plane loos were all very stinky and dirty. I now remember why I had stopped using ET!"
Pros: "Super confortable"
Pros: "The arm rest was dismantled and had a sharp edge of metal which sliced my arm and thumb when I sat down. I was promised a new seat and never delivered. Horrendous."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Excellent seat"
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 amazing. The crew is an asset to the airline"
Cons: "Boarding is chaotic."
Pros: "Seats small uncomfortable"
Cons: "Bigger seats."
Pros: "The crew practically ignored my request for medical aid. They were not friendly and super occupied. The seats were too uncomfortable."
Cons: "The food could have been better and the crew attention and assistance to the passengers."
Pros: "The crew were ok but took ages to help you"
Cons: "faster service in the plane"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by nearly 4 hours due to a cargo loading issue in Mombasa. Communication from Ethiopian Airlines staff regarding the issue & delay was very poor. Passengers were becoming very anxious and tense regarding the flight, if it would depart, and the safety of the plane. Improved communication from the Ethiopian Airline staff would have gone a long way to calming the situation and reassuring passengers."
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: "The ravioli was great, some of the other food was not great. Otherwise, the flight was easy."
Cons: "More entertainment options, the movies and TV shows offered are not varied or very good."
Pros: "Customer care was good"
Cons: "I suspect the problem of luggage started with Alitalia my first leg"
Cons: "see above"
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: "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."
Cons: "2 separate incidents. One, a fight between passengers at ththe check in desk that spilled over before staff could resolve incident. Then at security, after immigration, no cues. Minimal staff overseeing the process. No organization. Early"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Poor communication on boarding gate for business class Aircraft and business seat just medium Food quite as fast-food service"
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: "Airport facilities at Adis Ababa"
Cons: "No Wifi at Lome gate. I don't understand why there is no wifi in West African airports."
Pros: "I like that the bulkhead seats (typically where the baby bassinet is placed) have electrical outlets which I used to easily charge my phone; and that there is nice legroom space."
Cons: "Economy is a bit tight; the bidding process for Cloud Nine (business class) has reduced the chance of passengers being upgraded for free especially as a means to reward frequent flyers, or help passengers with special needs/accommodations."
Cons: "Boarded plane, then sat for over an hour before departure due to paperwork processing of plane mechanical check. However, we still arrived close to the time we expected."
Cons: "I used ethiopian on my way back too they told me my bags will go all the way to my final destination and it did not my bags are now LOST!! Crew is not attentive Food was so bad! I ecpexted quality in all areas but not even close."
Pros: "This was an A-350 and the plane was very nice. Better entertainment system than the 777. The flight was smooth and the food was good."
Cons: "It took quite a while before the first service. It would be nice to have a drink service sooner."
Cons: "The plane from Entebbe to Addis Ababa was very old with tight seating."
Pros: "I was not allowed on the flight because I did not receive a confirmation email from Ireland airport even though I was never told I needed this."
Pros: "Awesome crew"
Cons: "No electrical plugs"
Pros: "food and beer were fine"
Cons: "4 flights ,4 delays. poor customer service . every things is very slow ."
Cons: "flight got delayed"
Pros: "Great service Seats slide forward, so comfy! Food and drinks all night On time Lots of luggage"
Cons: "No sleep with my baby!! ;)"
Pros: "Very helpful, attentive and kind cabin staff. New aircraft !!!"
Cons: "Somewhat dirty ( and smelly ) aircraft even though they are a very new fleet. Some seats had strange patches and stains. Overall cabin experience can be improved in terms of hygiene and food quality ( food was mediocre or slightly worse)"
Pros: "Again, the cabin crew where all very nice."
Cons: "Seating space was very tight on this plane."
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: "Check-in and Boarding took forever. Cabin was very warm and passengers around me were extremely loud, practicallly yelling. Considering the flight was 3 AM, this was not appreciated."
Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised at the entertainment. Other than that, everything was pretty good. Nothing stood out as exceptional and nothing was particularly bad."
Cons: "The seats weren't the most comfortable, but on a 10 hour flight, nothing is."
Pros: "Service & Staff"
Cons: "Toilets always get messy because there are many people flying for the first time and some using a public toilet (or even flush toilet) for first time ever. They need instructions in the bathroom for how to use the toilet, how to keep it clean, how to dispose of trash, how to flush toilet paper, etc. If fly all over the world, but every time I fly from Africa it's the same mess, regardless of airline. Simple instructions would help - they cannot assume all of their clients have used flush toilets when over 80% of Africans do not have them."
Cons: "- terrible food and no snacks provided - Crew was inattentive and did not monitor passengers e.g. standing when seatbelt light is on - bathrooms were rarely cleaned on 18 hour flight - poor air circulation"
Cons: "My daughter's entertainment system crashed after 20 minutes. She ended up sleeping so I watched a movie. When she woke up, we were going to switch seats, but I tried to turn it back on and mine wasn't working. (By the end of the flight, only maybe 10-20% were using theirs as many others crashed as well.) The food was very boring. At one point I was looking for a flight attendant and couldn't find a single one anywhere in coach."
Pros: "Smooth Flight."
Cons: "The food."
Pros: "Again, excellent service. Funny stop on way to runway where we seemed to take on more fuel was a little concerning."
Cons: "Funny stop on way to runway where we seemed to take on more fuel was a little concerning."
Cons: "Customer service was horrible. Cancelled a trip within 24 hours of booking but put me through hours of waiting on the phone for assistance and still charged a 300 dollar fee. Our ticket was somehow suspended BY THEM so we had to call an office in a different country to unsuspeND then we were able to cancel. No help at all and kept dodging responsibility and forwarding the problem to other offices. Would book a different airline to avoid unneeded stress."
Pros: "The friendliness of the crew and their spirit of hospitality make this company stand our from others. Also the new aircrafts and the amenities on board are a big plus."
