Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "MUCH SPACE WITH ALMOST EMPTY AIRCRAFT ."

Cons: "They changed my seat at the gate, will be filing a claim to Turkish airlines."
Cons: "Delay of 1 hour, waited on the plain extra hour."
Cons: "At boarding they went in two stages. First stage they called people to board by category first people that needed more time then families with small children etc. HOWEVER, the put all of us in an intermediate room and the door to the gate was closed. They passed everyone so when the gate door opened everyone were trying to get to the gate and there was no order. That was stupid to say the least. Turkish could have waited the couple of minutes needed to get the gate open!!! and save the hassle!"

Cons: "Most concerning aspect is security. Very unlikely that I will choose Turkish airlines in the future"
Pros: "Security at the Ataturk airport. Airtight and curious. No wonder terrorists could only strike outside."
Cons: "Departure time is always ten tative with Turkish. Even though they clearly were expecting a late departure, passengers weren't notified. When boarding time was pushed back 30 minutes, it was already 22 minutes overdue (and it started much later then eve n the pushed back time). Terrible standards/"

Pros: "Crew did their best to make us happy."
Cons: "I felt duped by Lufthansa by the so called business class, where my legs barely fit, there was no entertainment, and there was no real difference at all from economy except for not having a person in the middle seat. It was equivalent to economy plus at best, but charged at business rate."

Cons: "Getting through security and to the gate was downright bizzare. We were directed to the special F gate, where we had to stand in the freezing rain in front of a locked door without any explanation. This is after already packing our jackets in. Then we got screened and just as randomly told to go to the main terminal, where we got screened a second time, just as stringently (pulling everything out, padding down the kids). No explanations whatsoever, the craziest experience, completely messed our plans to get a bite up, I wish we were given some information ahead of time that we are going to be sitting in a single room zone. The flight was ok, but hellishly hot all the way."
Cons: "I never made it. See reasons above. feel free to check into the letter I wrote your customer service. Terrible"
Cons: "We had to fly to mun because it was delay from florence"
Cons: "LH flight from Seattle was late, and I barely made it to the LH connecting flight to TA. Landed in Tel Aviv, but my one bag didn't arrive with me. Looked for the Lufthansa desk, but there is no such thing. They have farmed out the task of dealing with lost luggage and masses of confused to irate people to another firm. There were approx 40 people trying to get some information from 4 ladies, one of whom was new. They were unable to deal with many reports at a time. How about take a number and we'll call you up in turn? Instead it was like a push and shove pressure cooker just to find out the status of said missing bag and make a report. I was dealt with last. At this time, I was exhausted and angry. The ladies were very good and very kind. They informed my ride of the delay, and told me that the lost bag would come on the next flight. They took me out of the area to get a drink and a bite to eat. We waited. It came. We drove to my destination a few hours away. Never have I had to deal with such a time consuming shambles to find out the bare minimum of information. I finished the trip and will never fly with Lufthansa again."
Cons: "No Entertainnment , no space , very small airplan"
Cons: "To Whom It May Concern, My name is Eliezer Korbman. I was a passenger on LH403 with service to Frankfurt, Germany. Upon reaching cruising altitude and prior to dinner service, a Lufthansa stewardess reached across my midsection, activated the reclining mechanism and forcefully returned my seat to its upright position - waking me up to eat. (You may conduct your own investigation, but there was no prior announcement.) I politely declined, but was later denied dinner and breakfast. To clarify, I was unable to eat or sleep. This is utterly disgusting service. I am incredibly disappointed in Lufthansa for the way that I was treated aboard LH403. Unless I can be persuaded otherwise, I will be taking my business elsewhere. Garbage service! Shame on you Lufthansa!"
Cons: "Took a few time to ask for my kosher food. Crew couldn't locate me on the list, than the were out of kosher food, gave me regular breakfast, which I couldn't eat more than granola. It was pre-ordered, and I called to confirm a week ahead."

Cons: "The plane was extremely small and uncomfortable. There were only two lavoratories for 60+ people, the other two being reserved only for the 10+ people in first class. As a result, throughout the whole flight there was a long waiting line in the plane's aisle, causing the crew to complain angrily in German, thinking we wouldn't understand what they're saying, because they couldn't go through easily."
Pros: "Good pilot and staff and service"
Cons: "There was no entertainment at all. The flight from Frankfort to Tel Aviv did not provide a pillow or a blanket. I arrived cold with a stiff neck. The personal spotlight didn't shine in the right seat."
Cons: "The meal was served rather slowly. I think there ius a place for improvement there."
Cons: "the waiting before the boarding, the Frankfurt airport gate for telaviv is different from the other gates, no store, no drinking water except one small counter that sell water and other food in very high prices, I except to have at least free water in the gate, excepsialy when we wait their more than hour an half"

Cons: "The crew did not have the key to unlock to doors leading to the plane, which forced everyone to wait 30 mins standing in line. It was quite silly!

Pros: "Flight wasn't packed. Reasonable room for carryons. Seat next to me was open, though most seats were full."
Cons: "There was a late gate change in Cairo, which was not communicated to the new gate personnel. They were not ready to receive, there was no female screener which required a delay for the ladies to enter the gate area, and the plane was late leaving. Not a crisis, but was entirely avoidable. Also, I suggest avoiding long layovers in the Cairo airport. There are few chairs outside the eating areas."
Cons: "Great services and very clean air plane"
Pros: "Excellent experience overall, I would definitely fly again with Egypt Air."
Cons: "Only small thing was, I have seen better as far as in flight entertainment. The touchscreen was not responsive and selection not great. I brought my own on a tablet so it wasn't a big deal for me."
Cons: "I complain to the manager and he doesn’t do anything about how the customer service treat us And if you know the manager you don’t charge for extra luggage - and if you don’t know him you charge for anything extra"
Pros: "Food was okay and it's commendable that the airline offered hotel rooms for passengers with long layover."
Cons: "The plane should be at least clean. Sat close to the window twice and it was dirty with some weird stuff. The seat beat was also dirty."
Pros: "So organized airline"
Cons: "Head Hosts are aggressive but not so much"
Cons: "The plane, supposed to take off at 6 pm crashed into another plane on the JFK tarmac around 7 pm. An hour later we were deplaned and then were uncoordinatedly brought to a shuttle... took 90 minutes to get transported to a hotel... that didn't have capacity for all... then another hotel... still no capacity for all... so I took an uber to another hotel on my own. It's 1 am before I get to my room and crash (no pun intended). Besides the incompetent organizational response in a crisis: The plane was not cleaned Dry -- no alcohol on board Food was meh. Looooooong 36 hours with Egyptair."
Cons: "Thanks it's been a good experience"
Pros: "Delayed 1:30 hour"
Pros: "Do African airlines always have to be late. Poor communication"
Cons: "Being late with poor communication. You have all our details. Speak to us"
Pros: "Nothing was good. Everything was horrible."
Cons: "Flight attendants are rude and nasty. They take forever to accommodate you. When you press the flight attendant button to be taken care of. They don't care at all. If you ask for help you're left unhelped."
Pros: "They make us feel the tickets are discounted, and when you arrive to the airports for international flights which is normally allowed 2 luggage, they informed us we are allowed only one bag and charge for the second bage $125.00 also they told me that my carrying on is too big and charge me another $125.00 . I have had traveled with the same carry on many time but that's the new way of EGYPTAIR scams. Will not travel with them anymore..... They're the worst service, you will only see the cabin crew during the meal time , with almost 12 hrs flight you will see the crew only twice !!!!! The worst experience we ever have"
Cons: "After buying stuff at the airport we were not allowed to take it on the plane as there was additional security just before boarding. I had to throw away water and Pepsi cans. I thought this was ridiculous"
Pros: "It was a short flight that landed"
Cons: "We boarded the flight without problem but when we got on the plane a man was in one of our seats. He refused to leave the seat that was ours and the crew seemed scared and said okay sir and told us to give up our window seat and now sit in the middle. Clearly a downgrade! The flight crew seemed as if they were scared to enforce the rules and that they didn't want to bother the man. This did not make us feel comfortable on the flight or have faith in the crew."
Pros: "exceptionally efficient"
Cons: "Safely any time"
Cons: "It was exce"
Pros: "After the Kigali Addisababa segment this was vastly superior with a newer aircraft"

Pros: "צוות אדיב ורגיש לנוסעים ויעיל"

Pros: "Again, the cabin crew where all very nice."
Cons: "Seating space was very tight on this plane."
Pros: "WHY serve dinner at 12 midnight? The lights are kept on in the cabin making it difficult to sleep. Too little time to sleep and too much time taken up with bar and food service."
Cons: "NON arrival of luggage at Tel Aviv. See above"
Pros: "See above."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "I did find the staff very friendly."
Cons: "I found the staff to be very slow, on all 4 flights it tool them an extensive amount of time to walk down with drinks and food service. I was also sitting under the overhead that had blankets and they kept waking me up through out the flight when trying to get a blanket. I wanted to perches a watch that no all the flights had and when they did I couldn't ad ou don't take Credit Card. Flying from Israel to South Africa all I had was Shekel and Rands. How was I to know that I needed to carry Dollars On me."

Cons: "the hotel they put me in in the connection was horrible"
Cons: "security boarding in adis abeba"
Pros: "The seats were OK but not as good as in the larger airplanes. Vegetarian option for food was good. Airplane was half empty which made moving around quite easy and nice. Flight attendents were willing to help!"
Cons: "Independence day is perhaps not the best movie for a flight. Only one option as there are no personal media systems."
Pros: "The crew was very nice, beer on the flight is always a nice touch , plenty of food and beverages. Nice collection of movies and music. Food is OK. We had a 10 Hour connection at Addis Ababba, and we were provided with a city tour at the first time, and hotel at the second. I liked the Injira :)"
Cons: "Overall, it's kinda depressing to fly with Ethiopian, the whole experience, from the colors of the uniforms, to the big African people, there was not enough room to seat next to other person, we and some people we met on the flight experienced the same thing. Addis Ababba was very not welcoming, we had a small tour at the city, the people are aggressive, we heard a lot of "farengie" all the time - "foreigners", everything was very expensive, because tourist have a lot of money... they are not afraid to touch you, even at the face. if somebody offers you guiding, they will ask for money later on and will take you to expensive places."
Pros: "Plane from AA to tA seats very cramped and seats do not recline."
Cons: "I ordered a vegan food. The crew had difficulties in delivering this simple thing"

Cons: "My bag is gone"
Pros: "The crew is very kind."

Also the seats are very uncomfortable for a night flight: hard and crowded. No personal tv sets. Only overhead, and from where I was sitting I had either to look back uncomfortably, or look at a small screen quite away up/"
Pros: "Brand new plane was very nice"
