Cons: "My flight tonight (0078) from MIA to Istanbul was delayed by over 5 hours. I am traveling with an infant and it has been IMPOSSIBLE to get anyone to help us. Finally, someone at the airport helped in re-booking our flights but I have yet to have anyone give me an answer regarding compensation! In addition, we are traveling with an infant which isn't easy but we had the bassinet seat on our original flight. Now it's sold out for the flight tomorrow and no one will assist in trying to help get us better seats. I understand things are out of your companies control but being in an airport with an 18-month baby isn't easy and no one in this company has made this crazy travel schedule easier. I would like someone to call me back or email me with something that could maybe be done to help us! No one at the call center will help!"
Pros: "great vegetarian food"
Cons: "very short time layover between arrival and departure in istanbul by time we departed the plane which landed on time at 12.30 we got on bus that got top terminal at 12.45 and ran crazy fast to get to boarding for flight leaving 13.25. flight that close together are very stressful and unreliable"

Pros: "The crew on the flight were very nice"
Cons: "As our first flight got delayed, me and 28 other pallengers flying to israel told the airline agents that we would miss our connection flightfrom turkey to israel. The supervisor assured us that we have nothing to worry about, as the second plane would wait as we are many passengers.however when we landed in turkey the connection flight had already left without us. When trying to speak to turkish airline representatives about getting a new flight, they were super UNhelpful, we waited in very long lines and were required so go to a few different parts of the airport to get a new ticket, a process that was not friendly at all and very frustrating. After about 2 hours of waiting on lines, i got a flight that required me to wait 7 hours in the airport and measley voucher for a very small fast food meal. When i asked to be admitted to the lounge (as i waited 7 hours in the airport due to the airlines mistake), they did not agree to grant me access. When i asked to at least get the wifi code from the lounge so i can tell my familly that i am stuck on turkey, this was also rejected. While waiting in the airport, i spoke to many other people on other flights who had been stuck in the airport under very simillar circumstances, some even worse than mine. I also have many friends who have experiences simillar experiences with turkish airlines. If you are looking for a reliable flight, that will get you to your destination on time and will help you out when a problem occurs, Turkish airlines is deffinetelly NOT the flight for you. I personally will never fly with them again after the way i was treated."
Pros: "Crew were very nice and professional."
Cons: "The flight from Istanbul to TLV was scary. The Pilot hit the brakes half in the middle of the take off due to a "technical error". It was very scary, even the flight attendant was in panic. Plus, the food was uneatable. Hope to never fly with Turkish Air again."
Pros: "Aside from the crew and their patience, nothing"
Cons: "Everything aside from the crew"
Pros: "Onboard service was good. Ben Gurion airport services were excellent."
Cons: "Departure was late by an hour which made me miss my connection. Because of this: I had to purchase a visa @$70 US Airport service in Istanbul was very bad. It took 2 hours before anyone would actually help me to organize my next flight to Milan. By the time I arrived in Milan, my family had left worried sick not knowing what happened to me. I then had to find a bus to take me to Lugano, another 25 Euros, and not to mention all the stress to me and my family. I then decided not to put myself through the same situation on my way back to Tel Aviv and purchased new ticket with another Airline company. Overall, the whole experience was a nightmare."
Pros: "the crew was nice"
Cons: "the entertaiment was very poor..there wasn't at all audio - music or whatever the landing was harsh the boarding was late"

Narrow middle seat in Boeing 777 (10 abreast) instead of 9. Boarding one an a half hour late.
This was by far the worst experience flying I have ever had
Very pleasant, on time and I would like to particularly express my gratitude to Michelle, the flight attendant who was not only very kind and friendly but also went out of her way to help me find and retrieve the airpods I had lost while asleep.
The crew. The boarding at The airport in Buenos Aires was a disaster. Got to the airport 3 hours before and only got to the gate 30” before departure
The flight was delayed for one hours
Cons: "I almost lost my coincidence with my other flight"
Cons: "My charger port wasn't working for my phone, and the movie in wanted to watch wasn't working either."
Cons: "Arriving on time to make connection although I am not sure 1 hour 30 minutes was long enough to make our next flight. The baggage took a very long time."
Cons: "I ordered kosher food and again American Airlines didn’t get me any"
Pros: "Boarding was quick"
Cons: "Power in the airplane to charge phones. A form of entertainment would have been nice"
Pros: "The seats are hard and unconfortable for a long trip"
Pros: "Sears are still too narrow."
Cons: "I wish I could of finished my movie !!!"
Cons: "Seats (too small and little distance between them) Food (although this time the breakfast was better, AA has the worst food selection compared to other airlines. I just have to get dinner at the airport or eat at the lounge before bording) service is also mediocre, flight attendants are lazy"
Pros: "The flight attendants were unfriendly and not very attentive. Although one person did get sick and caused the crew to be shorthanded that’s no excuse to not smile and be friendly. I wanted to throw away some beverage cups and no flight attendant came through for almost an hour. The food sucked."
Cons: "Much better food, even though we were economy class the food could have been better. Also, I was told and researched that there would be an AC outlet at my seat and all there was is a USB port. I rented a portable CPAP machine and couldn’t use it. Cost me $120."
Cons: "My seat did not go back, no entertainment screen in seat, was not allowed to bring on carry on bag because there was “no room”. However, there was plenty of over head spots available. Was overall not happy with Americans Airlines."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "Awful boarding and baggage policies"
Pros: "The dinner was good"
Cons: "All the flight attendants were hanging out in the back. Socializing like we were invisible. They seemed to prioritize one another over the passengers. It felt a little odd."
Pros: "The crew was ok"
Cons: "It was 1:45 late . It was American Airline, we had extra passenger on board. It took them long time to figure it out. I was so rush, I barely made the connectiog flight and I only had carry on luggage."
Pros: "The touch down at MSP. Was sitting over the wing and barely felt it."
Cons: "Was told carry on needed to be checked because there wasn't any more overhead room for my 9X14X16. So then I had to dig through it at the gate to remove lithium batteries and it took an additional 20+ minutes at MSP to get to baggage claim/wait/claim bag. There was plenty of room in overhead storage for my bag."
Pros: "The food was fabulous!"
Pros: "No complaints. A smooth flight. Met my expectations. Would fly American again."
Pros: "Food was really good, crew members fantastic. Boarding was a little messy, a mix between anxious passengers and weak organization."
Cons: "The entertainment system didn't work and there was no way to solve it. It should've been checked before. It was a 9-hours flight with almost nothing to do."
Pros: "Entertainment service and film variety was good"
Cons: "Seats are too small, no place for my legs"
Cons: "New plane and excellent service. The flight was on time and the crew was very servicial."
Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "Online check in for one of our two passengers was impossible. Simply never worked. At airport check in desk, manual data entry errors during airport check in caused issues during customs at the end of the flight. Also we were not seated together initially even tho reservations were made months in advance. Airline online check in was pushing us to pay extra for seats together."
Pros: "Most things."
Cons: "Delayed flight!"
Cons: "Free seats in economy class are way too squeezed for a 10 hours flight."
Pros: "First class on TUS to ORD flight - very good flight attendant who was very pleasant, attentive and knowledgeable... she remembered which drink I was having."
Pros: "Narrow aisle and seating. Attendant looking at his phone the entire time we were getting ready to take off as well during taxiing and takeoff. Unbelievable!"
Pros: "In your Chicago office. He was extremely helpful both to us (too older ladies) and to others. Please thank him for us and look at him for a promotion. I think he may work for American Airlines instead of British Airways."
Pros: "Entertainment package at your seat was easy to use and had a wide variety of movies, music, etc. to please anyone. Plane was new and everything worked. Arrived early!!! Captain was best attribute of the crew."
Cons: "Crew seemed to be robotic, no personality, just doing a job. Food was just OK, nothing special, but at least it was somewhat tasty."
Pros: "Very nice gate crew, efficient boarding, quick and efficient takeoff"
Cons: "Found out that a lot of Argentinians do not obey the crew rules. Before the seatbelt sign turns off they already start moving to the front of the plane. But off course is not the airline duty to teach manners."
Cons: "American Airlines delayed my flight over 16 hours. Very unhappy."
Pros: "Nothing special. Horrible food (the worst in years). Cabin crew try to manage but a refurbished plane doesn't justify more than double for a substandard bussines class."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours so we missed our connection. The entertainment system was down during the flight and all they did was apologized over the speaker. There was no rep waiting to help upset customers so we had to wait TWO hours in line as there were only 2 girls at the counter when there are 6 counters. They were completely unapologetic and although they set us up on another airline to fly back, the whole experience was completely unsettling. AVIANCA NEVER AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "The crew really good"
Cons: "People at the bs as airport didn't organize everything. Lines all over the place and two flights cancelled to the same destination in less than 24 hours! Got lucky that they didn't move us onto a next flight because there was a domino effect on the flight. I stead of solving a problem for 200, they began to make problems for 600."
Cons: "The flight was actually on their smaller airline I think Mesa. The plane was really small with no amenities."
Pros: "On time, very friendly and accommodating crew!"
Cons: "My screen didn't work BA to Dallas but I didn't ask for help either!"
Pros: "Movies. Upgraded to more spacious seat."
Cons: "Dry dry dry. Hard to sleep."
Pros: "the movie that was shown"
Cons: "Boarding, to then sit on the runway, with little to no air circulation"
Pros: "I like that they have complimentary snacks"
Cons: "Delay boarding and then dropped us off at a remote runway and had to wait 45 minutes for a bus to main terminal!"
Pros: "The fact I made the flight"
Cons: "Nearly missing the flight that my luggage did not arrive with me that I had to go back to airport 6 hours later to get it!!!!!"
Pros: "the different sections of the plane made it feel smaller. Great food in flight along with the entertainment."
Cons: "it was a long flight, not enough movies to watch throughout the flight. Only dc outlets available which i wasn't prepared for"
Pros: "Right in time and crew very responsable."
Cons: "The audio for film's didn't function in many places of the plain."
Food service from Madrid to Chicago was exceptionally good. Unfortunately food service when we left from Chicago to Madrid was poor. Huge difference in catering services.
There was not enough time to get through security without running and cutting lines. I like that all my documents where in order before I got in line.
Very unhelpful in locating me as a passenger
The check in was very long, total chaos at Madrid airport.
We couldn't get on the flight because our first flight from Milan left late but they closed the counter early. Called British Airways for help but they wouldn't assist because we bought through KAYAK. KAYAK did not fix the problem and it cost us $1,500 to catch an alternate one way return flight.
Pros: "They had a great selection of movies, each passenger received a blanket and pillow without having to ask, the crew was friendly and professional, and the takeoff and landing were smooth."
Cons: "During the reservation process it seemed that the ticket included luggage, and only when I received the ticket I discovered that I had to pay 30 Euro extra, each way, to check in luggage. The ticket was by no means low-cost, so I don't understand why that wasn't included in the price. And the food could have been much better, I really couldn't eat anything and I usually like airline food... :) Thanks!"
Pros: "Tv, food, blanket with pillow"
Cons: "Everything was wonderful"
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "British airlines delayed flight to my transfer. Missed my transfer to Madrid and got one to London. Leaving from London my flight on British was delayed by 2 hours AGAIN. Not good."

Pros: "The crew was amazing.The seats weren't bad but not super comfortable."
Cons: "The kosher food was excellent and delicious but cold.Our only complaint was that the boss of the crew laughing and making lots of noise when people were trying to sleep.It was great to see people so happy but not during sleep time.I loved the crew.They were very warm and friendly.Boarding was excell"
Pros: "Loved the staff. As far as my experience flying Iberia for the first time is concerned, the the staff was very attentive and courteous. The food was not bad either as it was pretty good and included many beverage options. Would like to see how they do for flights lasting longer than 8 hours. Mine was only about 5 and a half hours from Madrid to Tel Aviv."
Cons: "Pedí un resumen del vuelo para ver lo que compré y nunca me llegó."
Pros: "Flew with the company Iberia was very good service ,easy flight ,good food ,all liked"
Cons: "I wish there was a bigger selection of movies and tv-shows to watch."
Pros: "I had a problem finding ticket number for a return ticket. It took an hour at boarding but Iberia rep. found it and saved the day. She really cared and got the job done. Can't say enough about this Argentine rep. Also this was an international flight and they did Not hassle us about the weight of our carry on. Last year Etihad weighed our purses with a bathroom scale at the door of the aircraft. Outrageous. Slowed boarding for over an hour and cost passengers an average of $150 - $320."
Cons: "Food was terrible all around. Didn't pass out water during 11 hour flight and all the "good" movies didn't load."
Cons: "It took a very long time to drop bags because there were only three people at the Iberia desks."
Cons: "Lost luggage and missed my flight to Jacksonville hand to rent a car and drive 6 hrs home"

Cons: "The USB connector in my seat didn’t work"
Pros: "On time, Very professional crew."
Cons: "Could not do online check-in."
Pros: "Nothing stands out."
Cons: "The seats are cramped, no leg room. The passenger in front of me reclined her seat and spent the majority of the flight in my lap. The temperature on the plane was hot. if you're in an aisle seat you might feel the air conditioner but not if you're in the center of the row. There are not air vents above the seats. This was a long flight to be miserable."
Pros: "No complaints everything was good No delays on time flights going and returning back"
Cons: "No possibility to order kosher food on the site."
Cons: "there was a delay of over an hour and no explanation was given either in Spanish or in English."

Cons: "Seats too close together for any kind of comfort level"
Pros: "We flew like we were on a business class service, excellent crew, nice offer of meals, comfortable seats and flawless journey. If you are given the chance to upgrade to Premium, do it."
Cons: "Short selection of subtitles for videos. Catalogue not bad but could be improved"
Pros: "Check in personnel were able to place me in the 3rd row where the seat pitch was poor but not as bad as the rows farther back. Wheelchair helpers were very efficient and friendly."
Cons: "This was return part of my journey. The LHR to MAD leg of my journey was extremely painful. I was unable to pay online or on the phone to upgrade the short leg of my return trip without raising cost of my whole trip from USD $1250 to over USD $4000! Also was not able to choose seats ahead of time online or on the phone. Even in the 3rd row it was difficult to fit my thigh length in the seat pitch. I had to sit with my legs splayed and with one leg in the aisle. My leg was constantly hit by luggage, pax, and cabin crew. It is critical to me that I can physically fit into the space between my seat and the one in front. With the short seat pitch emergency evacuation would be very difficult for me and the other pax. Since I need a wheel chair I can no longer request the exit row as I have done for 45 years."
Pros: "Usually on time"
Cons: "Too crowd. Bad food. They do not clean at all between flights."
Cons: "There were no vegetarian/pescatarian meals available so I literally ate bread rolls for dinner & the tv audio was broken. I paid $40 for 45 MB of WIFI so that I could work and the internet lasted about 10 minutes. i couldn't even send an email within that time. The tv screen itself kept flipping back down to the aisle. Finally, the temperature was freezing & the bathrooms were disgusting."
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "We had paid for reserved seats. When we got to the gate they were not there. Got bad seats to fly six hours. Left an item on the plane. No help tracking it down. No one would give us a phone number or how to go about locating it."
Cons: "Doctor recommended not to travel but no credit given."
Pros: "It was short."
Cons: "Staff was not attentive to customers needs."
Cons: "There is no room for legs he flight was not comfortable .For flight more 5 hours,a plane must be larger,than AB 319"
Pros: "Meal and drinks"
Cons: "Flight was extremely packed and 5 hours long. It was loterlly from hell."
Cons: "Airline switched to smaller plane after check-in, we were bumped off. Instead of direct flight from Madrid to Tel Aviv, we were routed through Vienna. Instead of 4.5 hours, it took us more than 12."
Pros: "On time and great service by crew"
Cons: "The flight from Madrid to tel aviv was very crowded, no place to hand bag, the seat wasn't comfortable like in a low cost flight. The was no TV, not even music. To bad"
Cons: "NO HUBO ENTRETENIMIENTO, EL AVION NO LO TENIA. EL PASAJE SE SENTIA INTRANQUILO . Y ESO HACE QUEEL VIAJE RESULTE MUY MOLESTO. ALICIA"
Cons: "LAMENTABLEMENTE ESTE VUELOFUE MUY POBRE Y NO ACEPTABLE PARA EL NIVEL ESPERADO , N O IMAGINE PASARIA POR ESTA EXPERIENCIA. PARAPODER RECOMENDAR LA AEROLINEA A OTROS , HUBIESEN TENIDO QUE OFRECER UN MEJOR SERVICIO. ME DESPIDO CON EL DESEO QUE CAMBIE ESTA TORPE SITUACION. ALICIA"
Pros: "nothing good happens"
Cons: "the last truck (madrid - tel aviv) was not with the same airbus that the 3 others (tel aviv - madrid / madrid - buenos aires / buenos aires madrid)... it was like flying in low cost with food (even the chair could not go backwards...very bad the last one"
Pros: "it was very comfortable, extremely good service, good food, amazing entertainment( good movies, series and games)"
Cons: "it was perfect"
Cons: "Crew was good but they could be friendlier (i.e. smile).."
I was surprised that I was put in first class the whole way! Thank you SO MUCH for such a blessing!
Pros: "When we were unable to travel due to Corona Virus restrictions, Ethiopian gave us a full refund even though we had a non-refundable ticket, and they were lovely about it when they did it. A+, hope I'll get a chance to actually fly with them soon."
Cons: "The cabin crew had masks to protect themselves I think against the threat of Coronavirus. We passengers did not have them. It looked awkward. How about if instead of handing out headsets they gave passengers masks?! Overall I enjoy ET."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Serve Warm food"
Pros: "Pleasant check-in staff. Friendly flight attendants."
Cons: "Travelers should be told that Gate 2 to Kumasi will be empty when you get there and that you should go around the corner to the transit area and wait for your flight there. They should let you know that they will announce the flight from the transit area."
Pros: "New airplane was comfortable and clean. Food was just okay."
Cons: "We had to transit in Addis (connecting from Dakar) and the whole experience of going through the Addis airport, getting the voucher for the hotel, and going to the hotel was horrible: it took forever going through immigration and getting a simple stamp on the voucher (the latter an unsafe experience and time consuming, with hundreds of people piled up to get those stamps from just two people, crashing again each other, with no order, no lines). Somewhat there has to be a better way to manage this and make the experience safer and more comfortable to everybody. For instance, just enforcing to stay in line and organizing the lines would have saved everybody a lot of time and effort."
Pros: "Flight Crew were great"
Cons: "The baggage and checking in process. Better training did on the checking in crew for international flight baggage, one one person knew what the requirements are."
Cons: "Everything starting from the check in to on board restrooms"
Pros: "It was perfect to me , im in so much pain spiritually and you guys makes me feel home."
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Champagne; boarding via SATS business class was smooth but I doubt Ethiopian has much responsibility or this."
Cons: "The rest: even mediocre fast food would have been better. The starter was some chewy rosebeef, the main where soggy chicken nuggets. The butter served was rancid! Gross. Also big difference between the older and newest 787! This was the older☹️. Ground crew unhelpful."
Pros: "Comfortable because the plane wasn't full."
Cons: "Check in and boarding was atrocious. We were told that we wouldn't be allowed to go to the gate if we didn't get through the check in but it wasn't our fault that it was taking so long. There weren't anywhere near enough staff and so by the time we managed to check in we had to go straight to the gate. Same thing when boarding. Took far too long and there was an inevitable delay with no apology. Plane ok. One toilet out of order so had to walk the length of the plane. Games no good without a handset and very few new movies."
Cons: "Unsufficent information about boarding ..I missed my flight I will never use this service again ... complete waste of time"
Pros: "It was a comfortable flight with good intertainment."
Cons: "The food could be better."
Pros: "The general attitude of the crew was good"
Cons: "There should be improvement in the food"
Cons: "Always delaying, catastrophic food."
Pros: "I received flying miles for this flight, well actually I really tried to find something positive to say"
Cons: "spent 19+ hrs in the airport in Addis Abeba, when I was supposed to be transferred to a hotel, needless to say, the airport at night is not the best place a woman would like to spend her time."
Pros: "Seats are reasonably comfortable with sufficient storage space Food was OK"
Cons: "Chech in was poor - didn’t have priority stickers for business class luggage. Had to go to different counter for hotel voucher. Overall not good and professional Didn’t have ice on the plane ( for drinks, water etc)"
Pros: "The crew was professional yet very friendly. Everything was great. Enjoyed my trip"
Cons: "No entertainment available. Rude flight attendants."
Cons: "No way to charge a phone!"
Cons: "Old plane. Not comfortable for a relatively long flight"
Pros: "New plane fantastic cabin"
Cons: "There was a fight but nothibg to do with the flight crew just some passenger with mental issues"
Pros: "On the sequrity check our watch was stolen. And we did not get any help from ethiopian airlines...we would like to get help."
Cons: "The experience from the airport to the plane to Lome was beyond troubling. If ever you are flying internationally from NYC, never fly from Newark New Jersey. Nevertheless, upon boarding the Ethiopian Airline flight to Lome that was supposed to depart at 9:15 pm, the courtesy of the flight attendants was a bit mundane. My mother and I sat on the plane for about an hour after the time of the depart before inquiring why we have no moved and the doors were closed. The flight attendant responded with, "We shall be moving shortly." The air conditioner was barely on. My mother is battling stage 3 Cancer and is an older woman so, I feared for the safety of her health in such a condition. About 30 minutes passed, and we inquired again. This time with a different flight attendant and she said she just did not know what was going on. Other people on the plane began to panic in a sense as well because like my mother and I, they too had a connecting flight to catch. The pilot did not inform the passengers of what was occurring. So, at this point, all passengers on flight ET509 had been sitting on the plane for an hour and a half. By the time we were sitting on the plane for 2 HOURS with the doors closed the pilot finally informed us that they were waiting for some paperwork. He did not apologize or give more information as to why we were sitting on the plane so long, with practically no AC, and weren't informed about when we would be pulling off. About 10 minutes later, the plane began backing up while people were still standing because they were restless with the wait especially when we had a 10-hour flight ahead of us. The pilot then got on the loudspeaker stating that we will be pulling in the air shortly and for the flight attendants to be seated. The pilot did not apologize for the inconvenience or state how long the flight would be or what time we would land in Lome, Togo. Once we were in the air, there were many safety hazards administered by both the crew and pilot. The seat belt safety information was not given, the exit areas in case of emergency were not discussed, what to do in case of an emergency, where certain equipment would be in case of illness or an emergency, and we were still not informed about the cause of the 2 hours and 15-minute delay. My mother and I consistently checked the flight tracker and it did not show the duration of our flight, our location while flying, no flight information was displayed and as hard working paying passengers we should have had all of the information and not have to continuously ask to get a slight answer. Also, I am a vegan and they did not have food for me. But there was a flight attendant who gave me extra fruit which I greatly appreciated. The flight coming back to Newark was decent, going was the major issue. I pray we are accommodated for these great inconveniences. Because to have spent almost $3,000 and receive this type of treatment is both saddening and disturbing to me."
Cons: "Besides that the flight was 4 hours delayed and the staff gave different information then the screen, customer service was non existant. There seems to be no structure or system. Gate change was not announced. Staff was not clear or direct about status of the flight. I have had several flights with EA and most have been completely disappointing and frustrating. Forget trying to call anyone, it took me 4 days of non stop calls to connect with someone to change my flight date. Then once connected the credit card system was apparently down and they could not charge my fee. I had to contact the US office while I was in Africa in order to get anything done, ridiculous. They over charged me and would not honor the fees that were quoted on the phone and via email but the head office. Dishonest and no concern for the inconvenience to their customers. This airline would be the last choice, highly not recommended."
Pros: "We were told by United that Ethiopian Airlines does not allow more than 2 checked bags per customer, but that is absolutely not the case. We ended up driving to LA and found that Ethiopian accepts as many bags as we will pay for."

Pros: "Flight Attendants excellent and always smiling"
Cons: "Should be able to select your own movie"

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."

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: "Food was so poor. Only option was chiken"
Cons: "security boarding in adis abeba"

Pros: "The plane on this part was not too bad."
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."

Cons: "Food was okay. Small portions"
Cons: "When I booked my flight I was never asked if I wanted to include a piece of luggage so I assumed it was covered, and then I got charged $120 for it at the check-in desk. No apologies whatsoever from the lady, who was pretty rude. I will never fly with them again since the service is not great and this charge made the overall cost of the trip more expensive than traveling with a better airline."

Cons: "Crew was trying to avoid providing free drinking water. Checking in for the flight took more than 1.5 hours."

Pros: "it was an amazing flight one of my best"

Flight attendant said I could walk around and look for other seat....didn't offer to see if other seats were available, didn't appear so. Also had teenage son with me did not want to leave him."
Pros: "Cheap prices"
Cons: "Air Europa is is budget airline, and things you expect to not always work. I could not check online, because the web site did not work. When checking in at the airport, I paid extra for exit and bulkhead row seats for my family, after which the agent told me that the seas were in different parts of the airplane. The agent was not willing to refund the money I paid and give us ordinary seats. Apparently, with Air Europa, money goes only one way. Still, cheap, so may be attractive."

Pros: "The boarding was fast and flight left on time"
Cons: "The crew was not very attentive. We asked for cup of water several times until they finally brought it. They gave us the feeling that we are bothering them..."
Pros: "In-flight entertainment selection was good, hot meal was good, staff was knowledgeable and courteous."
Cons: "In-flight wifi pricing per MB transmitted should be reduced based on the value the service provides (slow data rates)."

Cons: "Advance check-in did not work -- tried 3 times. Entered all the info, pressed enter and nothing happened."

Cons: "Food very bad, long delay, reading lamp did not work, waiting time at landing, bad airline ... not recommended"
Pros: "Ordered a special meal and it was far superior than the regular in flight meal. This was the only highlight."
Cons: "The bathroom was extremely dirty at the beginning of the flight, had to hold it because it was so disgusting. The crew ignored requests, they skipped us on the beverage run twice, and walked past us when trying to giving them the trash (on their trash run). The crew keep bumping the food carts on the seats, repeatedly, during service. I was given water twice and both times they spilled water all over my clothes, it was not bumpy at all. The entertainment screen was broken, the images were pixelated and going in a crazy pattern. Even if you turned it off anytime there was an announcement it would turn on. Plane was delayed. We sat in a warm plane for over an hour."
Pros: "Boarding was delayed by almost 2 hours and the reason given in the terminal speakers was "due to a crew change". This delay was ignored by the captain and crew upon boarding the plane 2 hours later. Even a simple apology would have been nice. The crew seemed a bit tense and the service was ok, not more. Some symbolic compensation would have been in place."
Cons: "The flight itself was OK."
Pros: "Equipment and crew on both Paris to Madrid and Madrid to Miami were good. 787 aircraft is good. On time and as pleasant as economy air travel today can be."
Cons: "Distance between landing gate in Madrid and departure gate too long. (Sign says 31 minutes walking time!) Also very long distance between landing gate and luggage claim in Miami - I don't know what passengers who can't walk well do. Food bad even for airline standards and Air Europa may have worst coffee of any airline - I can't imagine worse."
Cons: "Wery heavy communication, 99% workers in airport don't speak English . Same in Madrid and Barcelona. In Madrid from one terminal to another 25-30min walked distance."
Pros: "On our way to CCS-Madrid the crew was wonderful, i'd pay with my debit US card with any issues, then when we came Rome to Madrid, the crew was wonderful."
Cons: "on our way from Madrid to Rome I did not like the crew to rude, on our way to Madrid - CCS the crew were rude, not all, but most of them."

Cons: "- mediocre entertainment onboard - small and old sits - payed wifi who never works"
Pros: "Service.. The crew where really kind and always doing there best to make you feel confortable."
Pros: "The staff were very kind, communicated well (I'm English speaking only), and the entertainment and food were decent. No internet for me, as it was pay only, even on a transatlantic flight. I would likely fly with them again."
Pros: "The flight was on time - most important! The service was good, although I wasn't hungry so didn't eat the food. Seat was comfortable enough, no complaints!"
Cons: "It was a bit warm in the plane"
