Pros: "ICE Rock solid, at least from SFO-DXB and vice version and its variation in different movies, songs"
Cons: "Food -- Really bad food for me from SFo-DXB. Extra salt and for a person who does not eat rice/desserts poor choice. Is there some other choice for me(vegetarian). Economy response -- Pressing the button takes a lot of time. Collection of shawls/earphones -- Please wait for the plane to finish its flight."
Pros: "Seats were comfy and as expected perfect seat 79k"
Cons: "Stewards took a while to respond to the buzzer yet I was sat by the quarters Also food wasn’t offered the choice as they had ran out"

Pros: "I liked the service provided by the second steward because he was concerned about my wellbeing and brought me a veggie option. The entertainment was good."
Cons: "I was given a seat between 2 men and it was most uncomfortable. I am not sure why seating is not done more sensitively for passengers. I requested an aisle seat but never got one. Also, there were no vegetarian options for those who didn't book a special meal in advance. I am a star alliance member with Qatar and love their service. I didn't think Emirates would be below that standard because I have heard a lot about the airline and decided to fly them for a change. I was told that if there was any vegetarian option left behind I would get one but the steward didn't even have the decency to come back to tell me there wasn't any left. For the breakfast the steward was much nicer and was able to provide me with a vegetarian option."

Cons: "I didn't appreciate the service on board. It was slow and not as professional as usual. The crew seemed too young to know better. They only served water once which isthe #1 thing you should keep offering on a long flight like mine. I also didn't appreciate overhearing staff gossiping about other passengers."

The in flight entertainment was also amazing. The TV's all worked and there were plenty of movie/ TV show options. It helped pass the time. It was also free which was great. All and all it was a wonderful experience. I loved flying Emirates."

Pros: "Getting in the taxi and getting away from the airport!"
Cons: "Very poor service by a crew that obviously didn't want to be there.......lazy, slow and disorganised. Food option not available, purely because they could not be bothered to go the short distance back to the galley. I would like a drink with my meal, not an hour later........and if there is any chance you can clear away the trays within an hour of everyone finishing, instead of all gathering at the back of the aircraft, chatting, laughing, doing each other's hair, applying make-up, etc, that would have been nice! Lots of unhappy passengers, again, and I have had enough of flying with this overrated airline. One more thing......stop interrupting the entertainment system with you adverts and self importance....nobody cares! Time to change airline."

Cons: "See literally everything above"
Cons: "I flew from Tel Aviv and upon arrival went through security so I could proceed to my departure gate. Then at the departure gate a whole new round of security. There was a priority line, but for some reason I didn't get in it, although I fly business. The line was not that long but it just did not move. And the a/c was not working. Worst boarding experience ever and I've been flying for over 40 years. When I boarded finally I asked if I could give a review and although they said yes- nothing. So I hope someone who cares sees this."
Pros: "good job rushing us to the correct gate"
Cons: "I was shocked when we landed in Ataturk and the sleeve was attached to the plane we had to get down to the ground from the middle of the sleeve. We were taken to the terminal by bus!!

Cons: "The crew was extremely rude."
Cons: "It took us 18 long hours to arrive at Germany...and I lost an important meeting..."
Pros: "Everything was okay until I got to Venice,you lost my luggage and couldn't tell me where it's right now!! I'm in Venice without anything and freezing,what should I do?? And I'm here for just few days!!!would you buy cloths for my staying here?! You have said that my stuff will be get directly from Israel- tel aviv ariport to Venice but you lost all the luaggag!!!

Cons: "The flight got delayed from Alexandria and the staff at Manama airport directed us to a counter to get our onward boarding passes but another senior member of staff asked us "what are you doing here" and asked us to go straight to the gate, then when we arrived at Abu Dhabi the baggage did not arrive with us and we had to go back to the airport later to pick them up."

Pros: "Great staff and service. Non-pretentious unlike other tegional carriers!"
Pros: "Flights were on time."
Cons: "Flight from Muscat to Bahrain was cancelled at the last minute, and I had to call GulfAir to sort it. We had to add another leg to the trip to get to the final location in time. It was a long travel time for a short way to go."
Pros: "The in flight entertainment console was standard with decent movies. The hotel and food voucher for flight delay was nice but was only received AFTER fighting with customer service for over 3 hours on the phone using international calling. Terrible terrible."
Cons: "Firsr leg of flight was delayed (mnl to bah) then luggage was lost when we arrived in Paris. Food on the plane was mediocre. Service was poor. I kept having to request water because only a small glass of water was made available at meal service, and typically most airlines on international.flights offer water consistently throughout the flight. Flight attendants all but disappeared in between services. Coffee was also terrible borderline undrinkable. When luggage was lost no offer was provided for a solution - voucher, per diem, etc. We were coming from a warm climate and had to exist for two days layering warm weather clothes. Luckily we had our coats in our carryon. But both travelers became sick during our trip."
Pros: "كانت رحلة عادية سعرها غال جدا بالمقارنةبالخدمة المقدمة و المسافة و الزمن للرحلة"
Pros: "My flight was very relaxing. it was a shorter flight than displayed on the website which was a plus."
Cons: "The only hiccup was the 30min delay before borading"
Cons: "Although I do not have small children, I think it would be helpful to allow people traveling with small children to board a few minutes ahead of everyone else."
Pros: "More selection where you can pick and choose your tv shows or movies."
Cons: "Entertainment selection was poor. Only have a few selections on board for a 10 hours fight. Need more movies. Food was okay, didn't get to choose what meal to eat."
Pros: "We landed safely and everyone got off the plane."
Cons: "Gulf air has decided to do "silent boarding" - so we were late boarding our flight because even though we watched the gate- it never filled up, there were never lines, no announcements, no lights signaling anything. Our captain took VERY sharp and hard dips and turns during our flight. He even dropped altitude so quickly that some women on board yelled out in terror. No announcements were made as well by the crew or captain regarding these very uncommon experiences of turbulence or announcements to remain with ones seat belt fastened. Finally, the man driving the bus from the plane to the door at Manama airport was too busy talking to the men who decided to sit in the front seat of the passenger bus and not look on the road in a busy air traffic area. I'm literally blown away at how everyone was safe and made it from point a to point b. I'm also horrified at the lack of communication or safety precautions."
Cons: "We were in row 42 and there were at least 15 rows behind us, and they ran out of chicken option in food."
Pros: "Short flight. Nice crew."
Cons: "Small economy vlass"
Cons: "The in flight movies were outdated and not a good selection at all"
Pros: "We where on time and it was very nice smooth landing BZ"
Pros: "Excellent value for money fare All Gulf flights I have been on recently (12) were on time Comfortable seats in economy Excellent entertainment system Plane not full so plenty of room. Gulf often not full so well worth a try."
Cons: "Staff inattentive on overnight flight - no water brought round etc Awful breakfast - egg was dried I think - inedible"
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work, not just for me, but for everyone on the flight. The A330 was quite old, with visible problems in the cabin (panels open, bathroom door not staying closed). It's not a bad flight, but I thought it would be more like an Emirates or Qatar airways flight, but it's not close to that quality."
Pros: "Crew friendly, but as I sat towards the back of the plain; their load conversations and very rough handing of trolleys and trays were annoying. Raised voices didn't help all. I do understand that they work extremely hard in a fast paced environment"
Cons: "Greetings and appearances were good"
Pros: "We were late leaving Riyadh."
Pros: "Everyone from the crew was very kind. It was the smoothest landing I experienced in my whole life. I didn't noticed when we touched on."
Cons: "T)he food was a little bit less than I expected and by the time the chart reached me there was no choice (only the vegetarian option remained). I would have been happier with closed caption English movies (my hearing is not the best)."
Cons: "There wasn't any announcement after delaying a flight, and it looked like crews didn't care about passengers. I won't use this airline anymore."
Pros: "The equipment/plane was OK. Not the newest, but decent. The crew seemed good too."
Cons: "The middle east to India flights often carry a lot of the blue collared workers who only know their regional languages and usually do not know English or Arabic. For some reason Gulf Air refuses to provide in-flight instructions in the regional language of the destination location. As a result, a lot of the customers do not understand how to behave and the flight attendants have to use force/rude behavior to help them understand. In such cases, the customers are also to blame. But I think a lot of the confusion could be handled better if they would get at least one flight attendant to communicate and make announcements in the regional language of the destination, as most other airlines do."
Pros: "Every thing was perfect"
Cons: "Seats are so crowded no spaces hard move around Entertainment were bad you have remote control but no choice only one screen"

Pros: "Ground crew (checkin counter) was very nice."
Cons: "Better seats (business is just a middle seat unoccupied), better food. No entertainment at all, not even music."
Pros: "Crew was OK"
Cons: "Business class seats are awful, as they are for all European flights. Regular seat with middle seat unoccupied. No entertainment at all (no movies, no music)"
Pros: "Pilots did a very good job"
Pros: "The aircraft was big and clean, but the seats were not comfortable. No entertainment at all, not sure why it was list for review. My biggest problem was with their communicates. I booked this flight from Tel Aviv to London with 60min.layover in Warsaw, the schedule LOT offered. .The first leg to Warsaw was 30min. late without any announcement and no one mentioned about how it would affected connecting flights. So I asked the flight attendent before lading in Warsaw and she suggested to run throught the security. We thought we might have a chance as we were sitting close to the front rows. Nah, not so fast. It turned out that's not as rsimple as unning between the gates, everyone had to be shuttled to the main terminal and only the business class got a small van and went first, abd we were not allowed on that van even I told the guy we needed to catch the flight. Long story short, we finally made to the gate, Thanks to a LOT personnel pushed us to the front of security check and informed the gate we were coming. We literally RAN after the security to the gate. They reopened the gate to let us in and the aircraft pushed away right after we got on. The luggage, with that tight schedule, of course they would not be able to make the swich to London. So we had nothing except the cloth from Tel Aviv, its about 15C in tempture, we were freezing. Waiting for our luggage to be delivered to our hotel for warm clothes before we can go out"
Pros: "Food/drink options"
Cons: "Customer service"
Cons: "the above"
Cons: "The crew barely spoke English, only polish and didn’t care about you if you didn’t speak polish. The food was horrible and tasteless. And my suitcase was broken into and my packet of cigarettes was ripped apart and half was stolen"
Pros: "Flight was fine, and on-board crew was polite and helpful."
Cons: "Both the check-in AND gate agents seemed to ignore that you are allowed one personal item (e.g. purse) and one small rolling suitcase (sized and weighed as per LOT requirements) and tried to insist that we check in our small suitcases (for free). In the end, they did relent, but I was surprised at this. There was a small but decent variety of snacks for this 4+ hour flight."
Cons: "Boarding started on time yet we took off an hour late"
Cons: "On Monday, May 21, payment was made for 2 suitcases in the amount of $47. At check in next day we were asked to pay and paid 40 Euro for 2 suitcases. We told them that we already paid, to no avail. We would like to have an explanation. According to LOT luggage policy we should not be paying for 1 suitcase per person at all.."

Pros: "Your crew manager was being very arrogant.. No tolerance at all"
Pros: "The crew was hospitable and warm. All the in-flight service was attentive and high-quality. We had a wonderful experience with LOT and would reccent them."
Cons: "The only potential difficulty was the short layovers. We made our connection boarding with only 20 minutes to spare."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Calling the trip 'business class' is simply a bad lie. While it is common in Europe to give this dirty nasty lie do not mistake this flight to a 'business class'. It is simply that you get same seats and spacing as in the other torture chamber known as "economy" which I call cattle class (I suspect they would not let them fly cattle in those conditions). This lie is based on leaving the middle seat empty. Otherwise teh torture is the same. In short I hope someone will sue the SOB that invented this concept and that was allowed to call this 'business class'. It is nothing short of a fraud."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled"
Pros: "This time I found an ail place"
Pros: "the crew was friendly and helpful. it wasn't such a long flight and despite that, they still had smiles on their faces when you needed something."
Cons: "We were delayed. I was also asked to switch seats and was placed next to an ultra orthodox family, who was NOT happy to be seated next to a woman. This put me in an extremely uncomfortable situation, and the crew was not helpful in helping me resolve this. I basically had to go back and undo the switch myself - I would like to point out that the airline has just as much responsibility to protect me and my rights as they do to protect the other passengers, and I feel they fell short."
Pros: "Check-in smooth. Flight attendants pleasant, professional and service-oriented."
Cons: "In-flight entertainment offered a very conventional set of movies from which to select."
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "We were forced to pay for our checked bag and it felt like a scam. We even showed the staff the website where it said free 1st checked bag and they said we don't work for LOT we work for airport. Very scammy to me. Felt very unfair."
Pros: "Getting off at the end"
Cons: "Food, seats, no entertainment the worse business class in the industry. Boarding was also a mess. Absolutely no redeeming features."
Cons: "We were charged extra 50$ for our bags despite of Terms said that one bag up to 23kg is free"
Cons: "The airline left bagages of 30 passengers at Origen since AC was too small. Two hours at the airport to file report, have to wait for next flight Never again LOT"

Cons: "Toilets smelled terribly"
Cons: "No food"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "We orderd the two tickets with 1 luggage for each person. When we got to the airport they told us that the luggage is not included and we had to pay additional 91 dollar per each luggage. They just tricked us."

Cons: "Seats are for small legs No food No water to drink"
Pros: "the return flight"
