Cons: "Attitude of some of the cabin crew very bad. Service was poor and with short comings. With Emirates either the service is very good or very bad. They need to get rid of the dead wood!"
Cons: "WiFi down the entire flight, made worse by the crew continuously promising it was “about” to work. Wouldn’t recommend Emirates to any professionals traveling who rely on staying connected on such a long flight!"
Cons: "Everything was great food and the plane great people"
Pros: "Overall good."
Cons: "too many little children"
Cons: "Wrong communication for connecting flights. Poor customer service, flight attendants not friendly."
Pros: "Amazing flight and service. Would fly Emirates all the time if I could."
Pros: "flight was very empty, so crew very accommodating. boarding simple with so few"
Cons: "more western vegetarian options"
Cons: "The seats were so uncomfortable , the leg space was too small ."
Pros: "For the most part it really was a most excellent flight, especially the Dubai to SF leg where there were SO MANY CHILDREN around [should get a free upgrade just for surviving that] but the flight crew did exceptionally well and remained calm all the way through. Apart from one grumpyish woman on the second flight the majority of crew were exceptional and really went out of their way to serve and help."
Cons: "I slashed my finger fairly painfully on a toilet door while pushing it from the outside to open it on the Dubai to Cape Town flight [again, an upgrade on my home flight which is a bucket list dream would more than make up for that!] which i pointed out to a flight attendant and they took note of it and bandaged me up so it was dealt with well but hopefully that gets sorted out [she said she would write a report] cos it did unfortunately affect the rest of my flight a little... And so many crying babies [thankful for volume control on headphones] but literally that was it - love flying Emirates cos on the whole felt super well treated..."
Pros: "The crew and food was great."
Cons: "The insect repellant sprayed twice through the cabin was horrible."
Pros: "Crew were more friendly from Dubai to Sydney than on other Emirates flights."
Cons: "Screaming kids for whole 14 hours!"
Cons: "The check in process took a long time; longer than other carriers. In spite of so many crew members being there at the gate, there were no announcement of the boarding process. It used to be there before. When asked the staff is very politely responds on what is going on but the rest of the passengers do not know what's going on. Wonder why the staff do not follow the seating process by zone as mentioned on the boarding pass."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, nice crew, good entertainment selection"
Cons: "The boarding process by bus transfer in Dubai was quite long and convoluted. The food options were limited and overall low quality"
Pros: "Quick boarding. Attentive flight staff. Very quick disembarking."
Cons: "Bathrooms on plane a little messy. But that’s just careless passengers."
Pros: "The seats in economy at least had TVs"
Cons: "After 4+ hours sitting on the plane we never even left San Francisco. The Emirates plane was less than standard in economy class and we weren’t even offered water for the entire time we waited. The customer service was terrible and we weren’t even able to retrieve our carry on bags that we were forced to check (not due to the size). This was by far the worst first time experience I’ve had and will not be flying Emirates again."
Pros: "My children enjoyed their first flight they were very well spoilt on the flight also the care they took with my mum."
Pros: "Very polite & helpful crew & agents.... both at Dhaka Airport & the flight. Conditions to work in Dhaka Airport are difficult & yet your ground personnel were calm & helpful with a smile on their faces!"
Cons: "Very little isle space!!! Now I know how sardines are packed!! Did you put in more seats? Seems like you have!! With no consideration for the simple, basic comfort of your passengers!! Just because most of the passengers were Bangladeshis you DID NOT have to serve only what was a very poor excuse of Bengali food!! A choice or better quality food would have been appreciated!!"
Pros: "I loved the food, wide selection of movies and more leg room. Even the luggage was better handled by this airline. For extra 20 pounds, you pay 50 dollars which is pretty reasonable..."
Cons: "Can’t complain about a thing."
Pros: "The crew helped me with a duct tape but it wasn't staying"
Pros: "This flight was shorter so didn't have any problem and there were veggie options for food."
Cons: "That I was again stuck in the middle seat after requesting an aisle."
Pros: "Special ordered food was good, felt like we ate too many times but it was a 15h flight. Extra legroom seats in exit row are great, but other passengers stand in front of you to wait for toilets. Not sure if entirely worth the money for that reason only. Entertainment options were plentiful."
Cons: "Other passengers that treat the public space of an airplane like their own living room or bedroom. Disgusting and rude. I'm sorry the flight attendants have to put up with poor behavior. Amenity kit seems a bit skimpy for economy class. Toothbrush was falling apart and not enough toothpaste. Bring your own on board."
Pros: "Exceptional attention to details of client comfort."
Cons: "No faults."
Pros: "The entertainment systems was really good."
Cons: "The service of the crew was one of the worst I've ever had..."
Pros: "The service we received from crew was excellent"
Cons: "Actually we enjoyed everything about emirates"
Pros: "Very impressed. Will definitely fly with them more often in the future. A little confused with the max weight of baggage. Website was not so soecific."
Cons: "A little confused with the max weight of baggage. Website was not so specific."
Cons: "service, staff. had night mare"
Pros: "Very nice staff. The journey was very smooth"
Cons: "The food ordered was not seeved. Quality of the food needs improvement. not worth the money spent on the ticket."
Cons: "I shouldn't be forced to change my seat just because a hostess told me to then she was rude to me because I didn't then I finally changed my seat and she was ok- I don't think this is appropriate"
Pros: "Free upgrade given as skywards gold"
Cons: "ICE not as good as a380"
Cons: "Seat a little uncomfortable even with mattress. Food not great."
Pros: "the food"
Cons: "We couldn't take a flight for many reasons my wife she's pregnant and not allow to take a flight ,Your company didn't help us for changing our flight this moment so we lost our flight ,our trip,our money Thank you KAYAK"
Cons: "Bumpy landing"
Cons: "I had a middle seat on this flight and felt very cramped- by the end of the flight my legs were getting cramps and were twitchy. The boarding process was chaos- everyone gathered around the boarding area and it was impossible to board when the zone was called due to all the people in the way. Also, the food for breakfast was good but nothing great- the dinner on the previous flight was much more appetizing. Having said all that, flying Emirates was still a very pleasant experience."
Cons: "Thy did not hv service on demand in First Class. So had lunch at 10.30 am"
Pros: "USB chargers at every seat Plenty of entertainment options and new movie releases Good food Tidy bathroom Extremely pleasant air hosts and hostesses"
Cons: "Being in Economy Class. The difference between Economy and Business Class is worlds apart"
Pros: "Seats are way better than other airlines and the entertainment systems is way better. Finally, someone decided it would be a good idea to provide power outlets in a plane. Why was that so hard?"
Cons: "I did not see on the website that in order to get Dubai Connect you were meant to spend a certain amount of money. I thought it was due to an eight-hour layover. I have done it on two other flights. When I arrived people had me running all over the place trying to get information on why I was not eligible. If I knew it was based on rate or it was clearer on the website I would not have booked the flight."
Pros: "All was great ! Hope i'll be able to try the business class one day !"
Cons: "There was a group of teenagers sitting in 8 seats in two of the middle rows right next to me. They spent the whole flight climbing all over the seats and each other. They were very loud, often banging into other passenger's seats, and leaving their stuff in the aisle where people were tripping over things as they walked by. They were really inconsiderate of other passengers - many of whom were trying to sleep on a 13-hour flight. It would have been nice if the crew would have told them to be quieter and more respectful of other passengers."
Pros: "Overall service and food was nice."
Cons: "My daughter was sick and they gave us a hard time for a wheel chair and asked unnecessary questions at the counte despite explaining that both me and my husband are physicians and know that it was safe for her to travel."
Pros: "Kind flight attendants, perfume available in the restrooms, great variety of choices of entertainment (including listening to Quranic recitation if one feels so moved), interesting playlist of songs as you await takeoff ("Fly Me to the Moon, Rocket Man, Starman, etc.)"
Cons: "I thought I'd get an overnight stay due to the distance of my flight and the length of my layover (10 hours) but I found out too late that I didn't. The airport is not conducive to comfortable sleeping! I did appreciate the meal voucher though; make sure you ask for it at the Emirates Connecting Flights desk if you have a connecting flight with Emirates Airlines."
Pros: "enjoyed the flight this time around. my last experience in Emirates was not good. happy this time."
Cons: "Need improvements"
Cons: "Slight inconvenience having to wait for a connecting flight, which delayed our arrival plans at the destination...."
Cons: "Entertaintmebt was poor, and quality of screen was bad"
Cons: "Next time give money back to people for cancelling or changing flights. Never flying with Kayak again"
Pros: "Crew was excellent food was good."
Cons: "sea food"
Cons: "Rushed boarding at ccj"
Cons: "Poor food quality. When long haul involves 4 flights in total MUCH more variety is required. When the snacks are predominantly cheese based, then that's repeated x4 Entertainment was poor. Not enough comedy, not enough documentaries and again by the 4 th flight, well just try to sleep as you've done all the good movies"
Pros: "Vegetarian meal."
Cons: "Due to the delay of the first flight, I had to run until my heart aches to catch my second flight in time. Not many people spoke English"
Cons: "Carry on baggage space was very limited, or passengers were allowed to take more than they should. Also, the sitting and boarding at the Abu Dhabi airport was very insufficient for a full flight."
Cons: "Maybe if me and my son was Muslim we would have been treated with dignity and respect but will not and wasn't"
Pros: "The service onboard was great, the crew were attentive and looked after the passengers."
Cons: "The Boeing plane had very restrictive movement while seated. It was especially difficult when eating on the plane you could not cut your food due to the space restriction with fellow passengers."
Pros: "Plane is too old needs to be updated and good was below average. It used to be much better than that"
Cons: "Food, crew, seats and plane"
Pros: "Crews were great"
Cons: "1. Ground staff was rude to me. Didnt help me to print a boarding pass of my connecting flight 2. The window seat’s space in the first row was quite narrower than others"
Pros: "Boarding and checking was effortless. The crew was attentive. Food was very good."
Cons: "Seats are too cramped"
Pros: "The seats on the flight were TREMENDOUSLY uncomfortable. As a 6’1” tall, male, I truly felt like a sardine in a can on the flight. And, for a 7-hrs flight, the food made available, I did not find to be sufficient."
Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "Being charged for extra weight when it use to be that weight .. I had no hand luggage and I noticed some people having three bags .. where's the justification in that"
Pros: "The crew were very understanding and tried to help as much as they could with the issues encountered. Many out of their control."
Cons: "This flight is one I have done a couple of times in the last year. This will be the last time doing it. It is basically a transit flight for people to get to India and the sub continent. The food is all curry based and as a westerner found it not to my taste, only having a curried vegetarian option as the meal “options” is unbelievable. The plane is jam packed which is fine, but the smell of some of the other passengers was horrendous. There must be a rule that passengers shower in the week leading up to the flight at least. My wife and I both had incidents of people pushing in front in every queue from boarding (lack of control by ground staff as random people joining First/Business/Gold line as moving first) to bathrooms (myself and two others waiting patiently before a woman pushed into bathroom before person even got out, then blocked our passage in to let her family member in), hitting us with bags when disembarking and then completely blocking walkways with no consideration for other passengers. We have now agreed that we will fly through any other city/route to avoid this terrible experience being repeated."
Pros: "Again, excellent flight crew."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike."
Pros: "Timing were good"
Cons: "Crew UPLESENT AND UPSET TRIED TO BE UNHELPFUL Diappointed on staff Food was bad. Should give people smaller options but provide something edible"
Pros: "Great service, good economy food also, lots of wine. The entertainment package was really good."
Pros: "The flight wasn't delayed..The check-in/ ticketing crew were helpful."
Cons: "My seat in 13 hour long flight was Broken! The chair wouldn't recline! The crew couldn't help saying the flight was full and couple other chairs were having the same problem (?!!!). The food was mediocre. The cabin bag size limit was very small."
Cons: "Head will hit the wall when using sink in toilet"
Pros: "Very professional and accommodating crew on board. The Abu Dhabi lounge was large and looked very beautiful with it's appointments, but it was also packed with people (late time of day, I know), noisy with men pacing around shouting on their cell phone headsets, and I wasn't aware of the many services they had like the spa, no one informed me when I checked in. I understand this airport has a lot of business and first class travelers from all countries, but they need to better organize the lounge into designated "quiet areas" for people like me where cell phone use isn't permitted, family areas, where the kids can run around screaming unimpeded like they were, and also direct newcomers into areas where there are less passengers so you can find a place to sit & grab food without wandering around this cavernous place looking for a place of respite"
Cons: "The experience of transferring through the Abu Dhabi airport was a little hellish--very hot (I know it's the ME in summer), long lines, I was patted down in a cabin by a security office because of the underwires in my bra, which I was cool with, but my carry on luggage was kept outside the cabin area with my passport and money with people swarming through in lines. Not cool. I've probably never had an international transport experience like this, outside of Cuba where they pulled me aside and interrogated me by agents even though I had a visa and had documentation I was presenting at an education conference at the government state hotel, (and I'm Panamanian American, I speak Spanish, maybe that's why they though I was a scientist/spy). This airport definitely needs more basic staff and better organization. But I'd have to say this wasn't any worse-- other than the heat--- of any US or European transfer experience I've had in the last 10 years. Lounge staff in Abu Dhabi were kind of jerks compared to other airports, they were very stand offish (like they couldn't be bothered to help you, or maybe it was my Canadian/American accent)."
Pros: "The crew were good and accommodating, this was the only positive."
Cons: "the Food is the worst ever, i had better experience on an economy class with a budget airliner. on the 4 sectors i had with Etihad, it was breakfast menu no matter what time it was and it was the same choices which had to do with a form of eggs. i opted not to be served. the plane is old, seat is not functioning well, entertainment screen was not touch and had to be operated with the remote which was not working. really it was a huge disappointment. may be Etihad reserve their good stuff for the European and American sectors. I will never fly Etihad business unless I have no choice."
Pros: "US pre clearance"
Cons: "Crew was very rude. Food was not good. Meals were served late. No adequate snacks on board"
Pros: "Everything, it was on time, the Crew was so nice, the food and beverage was excellent, I am grateful. I really Appreciate the airline."
Pros: "I bought a one way from Los Angeles to Kathmandu. I had a 16 hour layover in Dubai. I went to the Ethiad help desk upon arrival to inquire about my gate. I was given the info I asked for, and to my surprise a voucher to a five star hotel and two meal vouchers at the airport----Complementary!"
Pros: "Leg space"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic Crew wss average in service"
Pros: "No one help me from beginning to end. They provided foood only if you ask 5 times"

Pros: "The female crew was very unattentive. Even raising my hand and calling them, those female crew keep walking."
Cons: "The food was not good . I am planning to continue flights booking with Ethihad- hopefully I will select a window seat on the 2 seat rows and will select other king of vegetarian food."
Pros: "Staff were great."
Cons: "They ran out of toilet paper 3/4 in. Disgusting."
Pros: "food was excellent."
Cons: "Crew behavior not good."
Pros: "The comfort and elegance of the plane and seats. The genuinely kind nature and attentiveness of the staff from ticketing to flight crew to landing."
Pros: "Chair was comfy"
Cons: "crew were unorganized & rude Videos were very old & not updated for long time at least 3 yrs old"
Pros: "Both ways not consistent in time When flight delayed in Abu Dhabi they treat you like Specially Etihad airways service is very poor. . Never again"
Pros: "Food & Upkeep of aircraft"
Cons: "Your association with Aer Lingus"
Pros: "Food and upkeep of aircraft"
Cons: "Your association with Aer Lingus"
Pros: "2 of the bags arrived to chhatrapati Shivaji terminal , Mumbai with cross mark in them. And when we reached home and checked, 2 watches were missing from one of the bags"
Cons: "Stolen luggage"
Pros: "The flight was on time. The food was great, seating was comfortable. Crew members were very helpful."
Pros: "crew very friendly....always ready to serve"
Cons: "seats too uncomfortable......leg spacing too tight.....person sitting at window wanted to go to restroom or just wanted to gets up ....everyone from the row.....gets disturb."
Pros: "The very large windows and bathroom linoleum pattern were a nice change from what I'm used to with other Airbus and Boeing planes."
Cons: "The sink in the bathroom had a slow drainage issue and upon informing the crew, one attendant immediately went to check it out."
Pros: "Maybe entertainment system, but brought my own laptop anyway"

Cons: "Punctuality, No break fast"
Pros: "It was Kenya airways flight that was to depart at 625pm but due to overbooking it my dad's flight left at 930pm"
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "The food from Bangalore - Abudhabi was worst...Also I pre selected Veg meals almost 4-5 months ahead of my trip,however the crew said he can't guarantee serving it..and the quality was poor."
Cons: "We stayed in the bus for 40 minutes before going for our flight, our luggagesite didn't come, they suppose to send our luggagesite to the hotel they didn't and are making us to go to the airport to pick them up,overall I had a very bad experience with Etihad airline."
Pros: "Although the crew was really nice and the food was pretty good it does not make up for the other things that were wrong on the trip"
Cons: "I got a different ticket leaving me stranded and Boston for another 6 hours to my connecting flight to Baltimore why my mother and my sister were on the same flight back to Baltimore after we arrived from Tel Aviv to Boston I had to pay an extra $50 for them to fix their mistake which I just filed a complaint with them about. Knowing how poor their customer service is and how impossible it is to reach them I doubt I will get a refund which I am entitled to given the extremity of the situation being that I was five and a half months pregnant and being left to worry about how I'm getting home to my family and my sick father really irritated me that L all had put us on different flights it wasn't until 15 minutes before boarding that I realized my ticket was not the same as my sisters and my mother had to run to a help desk in order to get any kind of help and what she had to pay another ticketing service $50 for them to change it because my mother would have had to go all the way to gate E from gate D which was on the other side of another building in Boston because Boston is huge Airport I am so frustrated I do not recommend anyone flying with this Airlines not only are there planes ancient and you will be squashed by the person sitting next to you their service is incredibly poor when it comes to helping people get to where they need to be their crew members and such are nice but don't deal with them if you want to hassle with security so badly that you just get so irritated I recommend flying with other airlines any Airline is better than this one and I will not take down this review until they fix there problems with in their Airline they're going to continue losing customers if they continue on this road because no one wants to deal with poor customer service and on top of that poor organization and ruining a family trip that was supposed to be relaxing instead it was a nightmare"
Cons: "No recibí mi equipaje completo."
Cons: "The plain was old meaning that the seats and entertainment system do not meet industry standards. TV screens were fuzzy, and many were not working properly. The service staff ignored my questions multiple times and I got the impression that they felt that they were doing me a favor by assisting me with simple tasks that are part of their job. I will do my best not to fly with El Al again."
Cons: "Charged for bags"
Cons: "very little legroom to start and then the entertainment system is under the seat in front of you so can't stretch one foot at all."
Pros: "הצוות משתדל"
Cons: "מטוס ישן מערכת בידור משנות ה 80 המאוחרות."
Cons: "No service on flight. Israeli disregard and stupidity.. fly Swiss zlufthsnsa or British Air and learn what your company fails to do."
Cons: "8 hour delay. No information. Crew turned off the screens and refused to give people information. Hungry screaming children. No compensation. Couldn't even get water on the flight more than one time. Television was a small screen. Volume didn't work. Only four channels and one was the map. Spend your money elsewhere. El Al has a lot of growing up to do. I've flown all over the world with multiple carriers. This was by far the worst. They're profoundly more expensive than other carriers to Tel Aviv. They could do a lot better than this!"
Pros: "Israeli jewish airline"
Cons: "Safety movie didn/t work properly and we taxi back to the gate."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable and inappropriate entertainment."
Cons: "I didn't ply . I did check in . Then they ask me to pay 70$ for my baggage because it's nut El AL it's different compani - up . In the email it's say I have 1 free baggage. I was were upset so I didn't fly . I will be were happy to get answer from kayak . Thank u BTW I fix all my ticket whit kayak . That what really neck me upset"
Pros: "The food was good and the crew on board was pretty good."
Cons: "I am always treated like I'm a bad person since I'm not Jewish. However, this time I was expecting it, so I wasn't surprised. However, the planes are SUPER out of date and there were only a few channels and on the way to Israel most of them were in hebrew. For a 12 hour flight on the way back, there wasn't really anything to do since the 4 movies they had just kept repeating themselves and I didn't really like 2 of them."
Pros: "Crew space overhead"
Cons: "1 1/2 hour delay on board before departure: bathroom not clean"
Pros: "the food"
Cons: "international flight with out personal tvs in 2017 is just unacceptable especially for $1500. will not be flying with them again. poor planes"
Pros: "Pleasant crew; took off on time."
Cons: "rocking seat."
Cons: "Took 747 for 12 hour flight No wifi or anthing resembling a first run movie, There was essentially 4 options, the best were old tapes of Modern Family TV show. All of this was on a screen the same size as my cell phone Forgot to mention this was on a personally paid business flight. No way ever fly this airline"
Pros: "11 hr flight Business and 1st class were full, so we decided to upgrade to premium coach. There was plenty of leg room, however you are right beside the bathroom and the galley so don't think about resting cause the lights flash the whole trip"
Pros: "The blankets were warm and comforting. Despite a full plane, the bathrooms were kept clean."
Pros: "The flight was good"
Cons: "It was almost 2 hours delayed from the original departure time!!"
Pros: "Plane was clean. Flight attendants were helpful."
Cons: "Old plane Poor quality video and limited choices I''m only 5'6" and I had no leg room Food was barely edible"
Pros: "The crew is nice."
Cons: "Yet again the plane was old and uncomfortable. I am fed up with paying full price and getting a plane that has an entertainment system that is falling apart and seats where you feel like you are sitting on top of the other passengers."
Pros: "On time fabulous service great processes"
Cons: "Should serve beer"
Pros: "Extra leg room."
Cons: "Video Screen did not work at seat. So did not have any movie to watch for the entire 10 hours. Paid 99.00 dollars extra to get more leg room, but unfortunately screen did not work."
Pros: "Flight was comfortable. Staff was nice. Uneventful trip."
Cons: "When I tried to reach el al by phone with a question, automated system told me to hold which I did. I held for an endless amount of time until I gave up. Several hours later tried again with same results."
Cons: "The seats are too small and aren't comfortable. When someone reclines you have no space left"
Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "Terrible service"
Cons: "Flight delayed so much that missed connecting flight. El al did not put me up in a hotel and I had to spend the night at the airport"
Cons: "Horrible flight. Horrible service. Horrible food. Plane is old, no entertainment, service is poor, airline is cheap. Can't even get water with meal!"
Cons: "Security - we were profiled and took 1.5 hours for them to search all our belongings. Tiny seats, no space, old plane, rude staff, terrible food."
Cons: "El Al has a draconian carry on limit of 8 KG, which they enforce strictly. The also do not allow a personal item in addition to the carry on. This is extremely inadequate and will prevent me from flying El Al in the future."
Cons: "No tv for every seat"
Pros: "Security is top notch. The ones questioning you never take their eyes off of you. They are expertly trained to find terrorists. They do what they have to to keep you safe. They board early in order to leave on time. Staff was very attentive."
Cons: "The handle on my aisle is supposed to lift out, but had been damaged, and I could not lift it. Somebody before me yanked out the TV controller from it's wire and it was not fixed.."
Pros: "It was FREEZING. I have never experienced. The like on any airline. It was like sitting in a refrigerator for five hours- made it a very uncomfortable flight."
Pros: "We landed early, and the crew was attentive to me when I asked for my meal after they passed me while I was sleeping"
Cons: "The air conditioning was not working all that great (was an older plane but still). Seats were a little on the small side."
Pros: "The flight was on time and the crew was good. As a low budget flight, the only freebie was water. No real entertainment."
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "Check in was inefficient. I was assigned a seat and I was flying with my mom and we asked to be placed together and they said we'd have to pay to sit together. Boarding started on time but then on the plane was a disaster. It took an inordinate amount of time to board and get everyone seated. I was sitting the back of the plane and there wasn't enough overhead cabin space for bags since they back areas were filled with other equipment. The seats were horribly uncomfortable - between by legs getting smashed because of non existent leg room and with the chair itself just being awful. The room was so inadequate that the person sitting next to me was basically in my space unintentionally. There was no entertainment for a 4 hour flight which was awful. It was overall one of the worst flying experiences."
Cons: "No place for legs 11 hours flight! No wi-did international flight, behind technology very poor for an international flight for the price they ask they should be much much better, probably will be my last time with this company, they behind all other airline I used by far. Too bad."
Cons: "Everything too much racial profiling not fit for the 21st century"
Cons: "No multimedia system No AC Poor service"
Pros: "The flight attendants were wonderful, as always."
Cons: "Legroom was cramped, especially compared to my subsequent connecting flight on JetBlue. I had standard economy seats on both flights."
Pros: "The safety aspect of flying on EL AL"
Cons: "Plane was crowded and crammed. Old. Crew was less than helpful and for the most part ignored passengers or was unfriendly. Food was lackluster. Entertainment was poor and the screen was small and in poor maintenance."
Pros: "Entertainment system did not work at my seats on both legs on my round flight."
Cons: "Plane interior"
Pros: "The El Al crew are amazing, patient, and probably the best thing about the airline. The food was also very good for airplane food. The 747's need to be put out to pasture. Overall a very good experience for a long-haul flight."
Cons: "The boarding process had no process in Israel - I was in business class but had to wait in a huge line since everyone just boards when they want - even though there are zones printed on the ticket the airport personnel lets everyone board the plane at the same time and disregards the boarding procedure. No order whatsoever."
Pros: "Food was okay; make any diet"
Cons: "The worst part of this whole ordeal is that we paid for an El Al flight but were serviced by a completely different airline; very disappointing and deceptive. The airline "Prestige operated our flight from Toronto to Tel Aviv. The air plane and the crew were NOT el Al. The airline Prestige had an older aircraft with no TVs, entertainment for kids, the crew was not El Al for an overseas transatlantic flight VERY poor...on the return flight from Tel Aviv the same airline and aircraft operated by Prestige airlines was utilized and this time the ordeal turned into a nightmare. During take off from Tel Aviv as the plane was gaining speed to go into the air one of the tires blew and we almost had a catastrophe on the runway. We were on the runway for 2 hours and then deboarded; waited in TLV airport for 8 hours before taking flight on an actual El Al plane. The point that needs to be made is to verify that you are taking an actual EL Al plane NOT a partner airline....the airplanes on an actual El AL fight are accommodating and offer good service, food and entertainment (which is much needed on a transatlantic flight; especially if traveling with children)."
Cons: "Everything except aircraft crew."
Pros: "Good food comfortable seats in Economy plus. Very good service"
Pros: "We got scammed out of the tickets from Justfly.com and Ethiopian Airlines turned us away without looking at our tickets. I am upset. Now I have to get more Covid Testing done and that will cost approx. $700 and new plane tickets. JustFly.com's customer service is misleading and deceiving. And they blocked my number."
Cons: "Background check your booking agencies and their agents."
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: "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."

Pros: "Very comfortable airline with enough leg room.The crew were very professional and nice."
Pros: "I was a bit hesitant to fly Ethiopian Air for such a long flight (Dublin to LAX) however it turned out to be the best leg of multi-segment trip (all other flights were Aer Lingus or Delta and Ethiopian Air was far superior to both of those carriers). Flight attendants were friendly, the physical space was comfortable and spacious, the food was plentiful and delicious. Movies offered were relatively new and the IFE worked well. This flight is a continuation from Addis Ababa to LAX so when we boraded in Dublin most people were already onboard. It was a bit difficult to find space in the overhead bins but with a little rearranging of smaller packages by other passengers, we were able to fit our carry-ons in the overhead bin near our seats."
Pros: "I received flying miles for this flight, well actually I really tried to find something positive to say"

Pros: "friendliness of staff. special attention given to my 22 mo old granddaughter. adorable!"
Cons: "Checking in was poor. The booking didn't reflect in jhb or in two Aviv. Special meal was requested and not provided."
Cons: "we booked this flight because it was the shortest. However, we received an email a few days ago saying that the flight on the way back changed and the layover has increased from 2h to almost 7h! this is very upsetting since Im pregnant and the bring such a ling time at the Addis airport really ruined my flight experience"

Cons: "everything about it, from the random cancellation of my flight, to missing my connection, and their inability to get me another flight, spending over 24 hours in travel for a mere 6 hour flight. No customer service, would never recommend Ethiopian Airlines to anyone."
Pros: "The food was terrible but it was somewhat editable. It could have just been because I was so hungry I could eat anything too."
Cons: "The staff was rude, the boarding was a mess, the cabin was at least a little cooler than previous flight but still very uncomfortable, the amount of announcements was absolutely absurd!!! It was almost an announcement every 15 minutes. And the plane played music (terrible music) for 45 min extremely loud after taking off AND and hour before landing. It was so awful and so loud you couldn't even hear your own entertainment playing from your own headsets. I understand music while boarding and de-planing but there is absolutely no reason to have that playing that long after take off and hat soon before landing."
Cons: "Everything. I have written to firstname.lastname@example.org"
Pros: "Excellent pre-boarding service to get aisle seats. Comfortable on time flights. Pleasant service."

No follow through to emails 4. Persistent phone calls at last elicited a response that luggage would arrive next morning - but unable to give a time 5. Luggage arrived late afternoon i.e. 2 full days later 6. I will put in a claim for toiletries, underwear, socks + taxi to get to shops"

Pros: "Boarding and the programmatically were fine."
Cons: "It was a middle of the night flight and everyone was sleeping. The lights seem to come on every hour."
Pros: "The Ethiopians have got the transit sorted in Addis. I had a tight turnaround time of about an hour and 15 minutes. From alighting to boarding and takeoff was about 1 hour. Very impressed that my luggage made it as well."
Pros: "aircraft was nice and well kept, and crew friendly."
Cons: "too many announcements on PA (information could have been summarized and delivered in the beginning, so that those who prefer to sleep can)."
Pros: "Boarding at the gate was atrocious. Very slow and not organized and we left late because of that. The crew was very nice. Food was good. Entertainment was ok. Movies were old and could have been up to date not enough bathrooms per amount of people on board (relative to other aircrafts)."
