Airline reviews

Pros: "The food was very nice. The IFE was very nice as well. The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The was a lot of profanity used by the attendants that was not necessary. Secondly I reserved a front row seat in online check in, but it did not allow put mean in that seat. Which if they were full would be understandable, but every single one was empty."

Cons: "Food on the menu was not available. Some of us did not get lunch and were being offered bread. Some flight attendants were impatient with pax and unwilling to help especially with regards to Wifi on board , others were impolite"

Pros: "generally good overall for a 14 hour long flight"
Cons: "legroom could always be better for me......but this was similar to most other airlines"

Pros: "Crew, interior, seats"
Cons: "Food was average. Service could be better. For example, my wife and I never got our food at the same time or close enough. We had to ask for food or drinks. They should regularly ask if we need something. Empty water bottles (up to 3) were sitting on my table for hours till we landed."

Pros: "The crew was nice, and there was sufficient overhead space for my bag."
Cons: "I've flown hundreds of times, and this was the most most unpleasant flight I've ever taken. My seat didn't recline, the entertainment console was not working properly, and I had almost no legroom due to the design of the seat. The temperature was unbearably hot. And I didn't get my special meal."

Pros: "The seat was not up to the usual Emirates business class standard. The lights were never completely dimmed."

Pros: "crew was good but seat was too narrow, and there are too many little kids near us."
Cons: "do limit the number of passengers with little children and don't put senior citizens near them."

Pros: "Hotel stay on your long hold"
Cons: "Needs to improve in all sections"

Pros: "General flight was good. Loved the food."
Cons: "Beeing more than an hour delayed"

Pros: "The food and service was great."

Pros: "Emirates really knows how to treat customers"
Cons: "Flight was long"

Cons: "Far too low temperature settings"

Pros: "Good service by Emirates"

Pros: "Flight delayed 7:16 hours"

Pros: "The travel kits are much nicer now, appreciated the mattress"
Cons: "The boarding process in ORT was a horrible fail. they didn't announce the boarding of first/business and by the time I arrived at my seat there was almost no overhead room left because people from economy put there bags in the business area. The bathroom was definitely not cleaned enough, I went twice where the floor was soaked, the seat was wet and the sink full of toothpaste. I understand that every passenger should be responsible enough to clean up after themselves, but it was not an enjoyable experience. The crew was friendly enough, but it didnt feel like the personalized service experience that is usually the case (where they introduce themselves, explain the do not disturb sticker etc). Also I think there was something wrong with my seat because it didnt "lay flat" all the way."

Pros: "Upgrade to Business class"

Pros: "I love the positive and can-do attitude of your crew"
Cons: "A 4 year old banging on the back of my seat"

Pros: "A380 flight was very comfortable, with adequate leg room. A great feature for long haul flights. Good food and a very good entertainment system"
Cons: "Good was served late, in both legs. Flight departs at 7 pm but diiner was served after 10 (midnight Dubai time) Which meant our sleep was disturbed and when breakfast was served we had a full stomach."

Cons: "Did not happen. Flight was purchased fraudulently and fortunately was caught by Emirates and Amex. Please REMOVE all my contact information from your website"

Pros: "Wi-Fi"

Pros: "excellent staff and friendly flight attendant."
Cons: "i wish next time the flight will includes a hotel for the over night stay. I had to sleep on the seats at the airport."

Pros: "Staff were friendly and helpful. ICE entertainment onboard offered a wide veriety to choose from"
Cons: "The food was average"

Pros: "Good service"

Pros: "We will highly recommend to use this airline. We will try again to flight to any city that we know they will have connections . Is worth it to plan to stay a few days in Dubai. Is a great city , unique, different."

Pros: "Flight was quiet and very well organized"
Cons: "I normally choose vegetarian on all my flights, but emirates only has a strictly vegetarian option. Which means vegan - food was not good at all. Sometimes too spicy to even try to eat. I asked to replace my meal on occasion and took the continental breakfast which was great."

Pros: "Loved that they took care of a Skywards Blue member, even upgrading my wife."

Pros: "the food was wonderful, the economy seats were comfy, and the service was superb. I really liked being able to watch movies and listen to music w/o a charge."

Pros: "the food"

Pros: "Clean bathrooms, new plane"
Cons: "Families w/ babies overran the flight with incessant crying, talking, and moving around for the entire 14 hour trip!!! It made for a stressful and uncomfortable journey. Families with babies and young kids should be seated in their own section with some type of sound barrier. The flight attendants did nothing to control these families who took over sections of the plane as if it were their own personal space. I empathize, Im a mother. But have some common courtesy!"

Pros: "The great content in the entertainment system and the wifi. Bed was comfortable and the service was fantastic. I also really enjoyed the bar in the upper deck. The A380 is a wonderful machine!"

Pros: "I say that everything was good but overall "excellent" because it is hard to fly for hours upon hours and say that it was excellent. All considered, it was good while Emirates (compared to other carriers) is excellent. These huge airplanes are amazing!"
Cons: "Flying for hours upon hours but nobody can do anything about that. Africa has a routine, including this flight, of filling the cabin full of chemicals - for insects? Prepare to cover your head and face!"

Pros: "The comfortable seats, the entertainment system, the food, the attention given by the flight attendants. A great airline!"
Cons: "The length of the flight, but that's unavoidable."

Pros: "Space and the fact that everything worked. Food was excellant."
Cons: "I always like Emirates."

Pros: "leg room"
Cons: "the touch screen system was poor, limited movie choices, food taste, poor crew members etc"

Pros: "OK flight"

Pros: "Efficient, clean, friendly"
Cons: "None comes to mind"

Pros: "Entertainment Food Friendly Flight Crews"
Cons: "Had to rush to the next flight in Dubai."

Pros: "The crew were excellent. Very helpful and professional."
Cons: "All good!"

Pros: "Food and Entertainment beat Delta hands down."
Cons: "Unfortunately packed into a row with a lot of big guys"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "It was just ok overall."
Cons: "The first flight was late by over an hour and nobody could tell us why. They also serve food once and you don't get a snack or anything--you don't even see the attendants--for another 10 hours. Then they serve breakfast close to an hour before landing. The crew is constantly telling you to sit as if you weren't allowed to use the toilet at all when the seatbelt sign is on--and it's on the whole time. So you have to be asking permission to use the toilet when you are right next to the toilet door and about to go in because they don't allow you to use it. That's not healthy for someone to hold it."

Pros: "I will only fly Emirates when available to my destination from now on."

Pros: "I liked the boarding and most the crew was excellent"
Cons: "I specified ovo Lacto vegetarian because I eat cheese and diary. I got a stale and very small bread role with strawberry jam, wilted fruit and margarine for the breakfast meal. The non vegetarians got a full plate of croissant, cheese, fruit and jams. When I asked for butter I got no response. I asked three times before I could get some butter as I do not eat margarine. Lunch was wilted and slimy lettuce and tired fruit for dessert. The main meal itself was delicious but I was hungry the whole flight due to the small helping.. Another small but slightly fresher role and margarine again. Next to the non vegetarian meal there was less than half the food. It was very disappointing."

Pros: "Movies and internet"
Cons: "Took too long for food service. We were in middle two seats and my partner was feed and finished before I even got my food. They should go down each side at same time."

Pros: "Crew attitude and helpfulness. Food and beverage."
Cons: "Boarding procedures. Inadequate bathrooms for passenger numbers. Seat width. No economy plus seating."

Pros: "The wrap-around head rests help with sleeping. The good size blanket was comfortable and kept me warm. I really liked the bigger entertainment screen and excellent choice of movies and TV programs. I've never had 'Homes International' and 'Don't tell the Bride' on any flights, which are favorites of mine and are very popular.. I fly on 16 flights/year domestic and international. The flight attendants were very pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "It was a bit too cold. I was in row 50 on the aisle. I am vegetarian so was pleasantly surprised with the fish curry being on the menu, but couldn't see or taste the fish. A bit disappointing."

Pros: "Both flights were amazing the service in both were excellent including crews too"
Cons: "Is from Jhb to Dubai were not Cartered for our foot socks had to were shoes to keep warm regards the long flight, and cover our eyes too ,but every thing was the best regards that only"

Pros: "Entertainment was great!"
Cons: "The check-in was stressful and congested."

Pros: "amazing"
Cons: "nothing"

Cons: "The TV wasn't working and the crew I asked for help didn't do anything about it"

Pros: "comfortable seat, friendly staff"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and service was good."
Cons: "Seats should be more comfortable"

Pros: "The in-flight experience was fine."
Cons: "The crew at check-in & at boarding checked me in to fly to Tel-Aviv (transiting at Istanbul) without any comment on visa or passport at Washington D.C. In Istanbul, I was not allowed to board on the flight to Tel-Aviv. I was not allowed to stay in Istanbul. Crew (Erin Uler) who stopped me from boarding the flight said he would help, but disappeared. Othes kept sending me back and forth between transfer desk and sales desk with inconsistent advice every time. I had no way out, so decided I will fly to the closest European country. This was after I had been back and forth for 7 hours. I had to pay full for flight to Greece. I asked to be sent back to D.C. they could not even work that out. I have a return ticket to fly back to Washington D.C. with Turkish Airline on 1 Jan and they said they will need to re-ticket my paid return flight as well. Turkish airline crew did not would not help me fix my return flight back to D.C. They have asked me to contact the agent ( Kayak). Now I am stuck in Athens, a country I have never visited nor planned to. My tours & accommodation, all paid for in Israel, I have lost. I had a tour fully paid in Israel. I have no ticket to return back to D.C. even though I paid for ticket with cancellation insurance when I bought the ticket. The advice between Turkish crew who checked my passport (official) while I was flying out of D.C. vs the Turkish crew who stopped me from boarding was inconsistent. If I had been stopped in D.C. I wouldn't have had to face the events that followed. Now I have lost my tours, hotel in Israel. I had to pay extra for flight to Athens and I am paying for hotel and sundry in Athens while waiting for flight out. Turkish crew at Istanbul were not only unhelpful but rude and inconsistent. While I was waiting for 8 hours for a firm information, shouting matches between Turkish crew and customers went on at least a dozen times. Inconsistent information from Turkish staff has led me to be currently stuck in Athens. I am waiting for a way back to D.C. There should be a rule that fines an airline if they board people without accurate visa papers and they fail to check it. There should also be a fine to the airline if they stop people from boarding at a transit airport leaving passanger stranded with nowhere to go or return."

Cons: "No Free WiFi in the airport, and the salad on the plane was taste-less. There was not entertainment device on the plane."

Cons: "Boarding and airport were terrible. Needed to walk 2 KM from one gate to another, only to board bus back to original location. Bus needed to make multiple trips to accommodate all passengers, this took one hour for boarding."

Pros: "Great service , great planes"
Cons: "All was great"

Pros: "Good entertainment, movies ,etc... Helpful crew"
Cons: "Very long lines and delayed boarding"

Pros: "flight departed Jhb on time and arrived in Istanbul a few mins earlier than scheduled"
Cons: "1.cabin temperature varied from cold to very warm 2.I asked the cabin crew for a blanket but they forgot about it 3.I ordered a whisky with ice - was given half a tot with 2 small blocks of ice 4.only one person was serving drinks and food on my aisle so it was very slow service (other aisle had 2 crew serving)"

Pros: "There was food and beverage service on this short flight"
Cons: "Confusing boarding arrangements. Had to go through security twice when simply changing planes, in transit, same airline. Late departure"

Pros: "No complaints about the plane, staff etc and its probably no worse than any other airline"
Cons: "Long overnight flight in Economy Class, little legroom. As I am larger than average and find it hard to sleep on flights, the cramped conditions were extremely uncomfortable"

Cons: "Too frequent delays. Both directions connection flight missed, due to delayed flight. Both delays seems happened due to landing queue load (plane rounded in air more than hour before landing)"

Pros: "the personal screen is great, the crew were nice and plesent, nothing went wrong..."
Cons: "I had vigie meal and it was not so good. I wan't order it again, next time I'll order only fruit and vegetables."

Cons: "No AC"

Pros: "I'm 6 ft 2. Legspace was adequate, and no silly boxes under the seats like other airlines that obstruct your feet. Great entertainment systems - modern, good selection. Food and staff excellent."
Cons: "Their online checkin systems could operate a bit more smoothly. At one point, I had to go in in person, because the online checkin site had an already past flight from their codeshare partner SAS showing up as the next flight, and I couldn't perform online checkin as a result."

Pros: "Entertainment, and the plane which felt really new and comfy."
Cons: "Food was a bit boring (because it was such a short flight, I suppose)"

Pros: "The landing."
Cons: "My special meal had been canceled."

Cons: "seats were definitely narrow"

Cons: "Leg space on this flight was less compared to other flights I had with TK."

Pros: "I can't remember the flight experience, so I assume it was fine."
Cons: "I can't remember the flight experience, so I assume it was fine."

Pros: "Worst flight"
Cons: "I was on the phone for 4 hours, went to Turkish office in New York City (they didn't agree to see me), called various sales offices without obtaining a resolution. The only option I have is to lose the full fare of this ticket."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "The issue of excess baggage. Would appreciate to buy on line before my flight so that I know how much to carry and also that I am covered before leaving home. Payment at the airport may be too costly as well as unreasonable. It's like a penalty for having excess luggage. This is the reason I prefer flying with EMIRATES because they afford me to but pay fir excess luggage before my departure. Planning ahead is key"

Cons: "The flight from LAX was delayed which can happen but they were so dysfunctional in Istanbul that we not only missed the original connecting flight to Tel Aviv but the next two subsequent ones as well. They sent us from one end of the airport to the other and made us wait in 4 different lines before sending us to the next one. Our baggage arrived opened and taped closed and had been rifled through. My 90 year old mother almost collapsed because wheelchairs in LAX and in Istanbul never arrived."

Pros: "Food good movie selections and Nice staff"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Fine, short flight overall. Crew was good, airplane comfortable, and the boarding process was fine."
Cons: "I expected more substantial dinner; perhaps because the one in the Venice-Istanbul flight was. The latter flight got beef/pasta choice, whereas the former one a tuna-fish sandwich."

Pros: "The flight was quite comfortable. We lucked out with only a partially filled flight leaving extra space to sleep. Service was friendly and the food was excellent! I was fed twice on my 9hour flight and once on my 4hour flight. Great in flight entertainment."
Cons: "No complaints."

Pros: "I liked the connection in Instanbul, we didn't have to walk a lot and we didn't have to go through passport check, the connection was short. The flight to tlv was short and comfortable"
Cons: "I bought new suitcase and it arrived to tlv broken"

Pros: "Food and drinks,"
Cons: "No USB outlets."

Cons: "seats in economy far too close together ... nose to back of seat in front of me about 9 inches. when seat back was back."

Cons: "I have bought two sides ticket from Turkish Airlines. And i miss my first flight, when i came to airport for return flight Turkish Airlines cancel my return flight whitout update by email or massage by phon!!"

Pros: "Food and Crew"
Cons: "The fact that the boarding was by bus and not through a sleeve detracts from the process."

Pros: "Great"
Cons: "Great"

Pros: "Service was ok , but not trying too much"
Cons: "Ask for some milk for my tea , I was egnored once ,second time got an answaer "there is non""

Pros: "This flight had good leg room. The entertainment appeared to be excellent--however I did not use it due to the serious delay and the fact we were flying from 3:00 to 5:00 AM..."
Cons: "Boarding/takeoff on this flight was additionally delayed over an hour. As above, on this leg of the return flight, we didn't receive the meals we initially ordered."

Pros: "service"
Cons: "multimedia"

Cons: "ذهبت لتاجيل موعد الطياره بنفس يوم السفر فقالوا لي يجب دفع غرامه 154 دولار سالت الموظفه كم التذكره الجديده قالت 130 دولار قلت لها على النت 105 دولار قالت صحيح ذهبت وشريت تذكره عوده جديده عن النت بعد ان سرت 4 ساعات الى المطار ذهابا وايابا لتغير الطائره"

Pros: "Comfortable seat, quick boarding and deplaning"
Cons: "No in seat entertainment, bad food"

Pros: "that its only 1 hour 45 min."
Cons: "tired cabin crew. terrible wet sndwich. very disssapointing specially when they knew it's a night flight that most of the people coming from connections of 10 hours!! Seats need improvement. terrible entertainment which made the people and specially the kids more boring.. and.. we had a delay of almost 1 hour!!"

Pros: "Good food. Wide choice of beverages. Entertainment. Flight is only 1h 45min Departure on time."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Entertainment system is excellent, food is solid and plentiful."
Cons: "I've flown Turkish a few times before, and they're generally pretty good for the price. This trip was different. Despite Turkish Airlines policies outlined in their "Customer Rights," I received no notification that the flight was delayed 3 hours, and there was no notification at the JoBurg airport until you go to the counter to check in. JoBurg staff - which are Menzies third-party contractors, not Turkish staff - were disorganized, uncommunicative, and unhelpful. Only one person at the check in desk seemed to have authorization to make any changes, so all other agents were running back and forth to speak with him, and not communicating with passengers. It took over an hour to get clarity on the situation and rebook my connecting flight to Washington for a different flight 8 hours later. The only compensation offered was one meal voucher worth R100 (roughly $7). They would not even look at other Star Alliance flights for early arrival in Washington, and said they were not authorized to consider upgrading my ticket. When I called the Turkish customer service, they essentially said "What do you want us to do about it? You have to submit a formal complaint." Boarding was totally disorganized. In theory there are boarding groups, but after business class and all the high-ranking loyalty members, it's pretty much a mad rush. This seems to be the common practice for Turkish now. In general, Turkish has a great entertainment system on all their long-haul flights, with tons of movies - including very new releases - music, games, etc. They also provide complimentary kits with socks, slippers, eye mask, earplugs and dental kit, even for economy passengers. The meals are fairly good for airlines. However, legroom in economy isn't great. I'm 6'1", and had difficulty getting comfortable with my knees jammed into the back of the seat in front of me. On this particular flight, I was in row 18. The cabin crew were frantic, disorganized, and shouting to each other across passengers. One half of our row was served the meal, and the other half had to wait over 30 minutes to be served for some reason. By that time the vegetarian option was no longer available. Crew also had to run back and forth between service carts because they were frequently out of very common beverages (like sparkling water. And ice.), and on two occasions crew left a drawer from a cart full of trash sitting in the aisle. There were several times that crew ran carts into passengers - including once into my knee that was not in the aisle - and didn't even acknowledge doing so. They also stopped the carts in front of occupied lavatories, temporarily trapping passengers. So not terribly professional. While not specifically on this flight, the experience in Istanbul airport with Turkish Airlines' staff was awful. Zero interest in helping, rude and dismissive, and overall terrible."

Pros: "I left my iPad in the seat back of my previous flight to Istanbul and by the next morning they had my iPad to me and Hungary! Very professional!"

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: "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"

Pros: "You can easily trust Turkish Air to get you there on time and in relevant comfort. The staff are very nice and accommodating."
Cons: "The plane was a bit more cramped than for example, Singapore air. I also thought the boarding could be improved significantly by calling groups. Even though it was a small flight, the boarding was a bit of mayhem due to the fact that we had to shuttle to the plane."

Pros: "On my way back my flight before was delayed. When i arrived to the flight people were still boarding but i was told that they knew my flight delayed therefore they aold my ticket."
Cons: "I run to the flight and fall on the way and they didnt even have a first aid kit at the gate, and they sold my ticket!!!"

Pros: "The service, food, efficiency"
Cons: "It seemed that the handling and leaving the plane took very long, probably due to airport services"

"They didn’t notify anyone that the CDC had changed it’s entry requirements and cost me my flight. I will never fly with them again."

"It was so hot. No pillows were available and when asked for a blanket instead there were no blankets available as well"

Cons: "We took off later than the expected time wäbut we and that‘s not I‘m used to from egyptair but eventually we reached our destination in the mean expected time, also the landing was a bit harsh and we felt it all"

Cons: "The plane is old style no tv screen in the chairs The Entertainement was so poor & boaring for 11 hours flight! One host crew member (maybe Joe) was changing his shirt in the food area that passengers could see him with his undershirt!"

Pros: "Good price. Direct flight. Decent food."
Cons: "Offer more frequent complimentary drinks. Staff talking too loudly at back of plane while passengers trying to sleep."

Pros: "I am so grateful and appreciative towards the staff. My flight was delayed and therefore I was very late to the gate. They let me on the plane - a big thank you! I was also in such a rush that I dropped my passport holder and they picked it up and returned it to me. The food was surprisingly good too. The service during the flight was also very good."

Cons: "My reservation was 2 pieces luggage from Cairo to Kuwait and the same from Kuwait to Cairo ... when I went to the airport Egypt air told that my flight from Kuwait to Cairo just 1 piece and that because you didn’t reserve your ticket from Egypt air directly ... and that made a problem to me Thanks"

Cons: "We received our baggage 2 days later"

Pros: "Excellent staff clean plane ."
Cons: "Trip was delayed for one hour ."

Cons: "45 minutes to get my bag!"

Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Crew not attentive not trying to give the extra service that you pay so much money for. Food options hopeless. No welcome no introduction. Nondrink on arrival. I could’ve sworn that I was in a budget economy section. Old Shaking plane. Other than a business class seat you get nothing."

Pros: "Entertainment selection was decent, I was especially impressed by the very wide variety of music to listen to. The crew were very friendly, helpful and attentive. The plane was clean and presentable, especially the lavatories. The seats were comfortable and the blankets provided worked well too."
Cons: "Food was bland and the chicken dish was dry and difficult to chew. Movie selection on the entertainment system was mediocre, with limited variety of films in general and especially limited variety in languages other than English and Arabic. A problem which I encountered on board was a big gap between the ventilation panel at the base of the wall and the flooring, through which the dessert of my meal fell and which presented the risk of losing further items. I hope this is fixed promptly."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "There was nothing special about this flight"
Cons: "The plane was old and not very clean. No personal tv for a 5+ hour international flight. baggage took almost 1 hour after landing. Overall I’m not impressed at all and have flown on much better airlines."

Pros: "Amazing hospitality. Flight attendants were so friendly. The meals and gifts made for a very pleasant flight experience"

Pros: "Crew was super nice and helpful. Flight schedule was on time."

Pros: "The dinner food was decent (breakfast was subpar)."
Cons: "We waited about an hour lined up outside of the gate to board. Then when we finally boarded late, we sat on the runway for 2 hours! This wasn’t the first time it’s happened on this flight, either! We were thirsty and no one offered us water. The flight attendants kept skipping my friend and I when they did come around, which was not often. We were extremely thirsty the entire time and when we finally were able to get up to use the bathroom and search for water, we were told to sit back down. We got tiny cups of water about three times on a 10.5 hour flight. Lastly, the entertainment selection was very small and limited."

Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "It took over an hour to check-in. People were pushing in because it was not well marked and nobody directing the people. It was terrible. The plane has very old seats, and no entertainment screen on seats, still the old monitors hanging from the roof."

Cons: "Na"

Cons: "The plane was so hot and the stewardess were rude and impatient."

Pros: "لايوجد"
Cons: "تاخير اكثر من 3 ساعات"

Cons: "The quality of service and aircraft"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Fligjt from Cairo to Toronto was very unorganised and unprofessional. Did not follow appropriate protocol for boarding procedures. Delayed. Unprofessional staff in Cairo."

Pros: "Same"
Cons: "Same"

Pros: "Services"
Cons: "Allowed only one bag and charged $120 for second bag. I thought we are allowed two bags"

Pros: "The crew was gentle and courteous."
Cons: "I choose to see only positive things."

Cons: "Poooooor"

Pros: "We flew JFK to CAI roundtrip in coach. The whole process from check-in to landing was good overall, and the meals were also of good quality and complimentary as was baggage check-in (compared to US carriers who charge you for everything)."
Cons: "The bathroom got a little dirtier on the long haul flight compared to what I remember on other carriers, and phone support is only available during business hours which turned out to be ok, but could be a problem if you need to have a question answered last minute."

Pros: "Basic older plane. Got me to where I needed to be."
Cons: "Was late taking off. Poorly organized airport and gate."

Pros: "Overall the flight was good. The boarding process became a bit hectic in Joburg and arriving in Cairo was a mess too. Our baggage took too long to arrive on the belt and people were still waiting for their luggage after I had gotten mine. No one from EgyptAir told us anything which confused us even more. Next time have more organization and communication with passengers."

"the check in was quite poor. i did not know what line was for elal and what was for air portugal. a big mess. very annoying. also very frustrating was that the airplane left one hour late because a prior flight was late. but they must have known that in advance and should have alerted us to come an hour later. where was the consideration for our time?"

"Plenty of leg room on the new el al planes. It’s a miracle."

Pros: "price. on time. new aircraft."
Cons: "food"

Cons: "They didn't issue me a ticket and i stuck in Heathrow airport. Worst of the worst"

Pros: "The crew was amazing"

Pros: "Premium economy was very comfortable"

Cons: "The staff at check in was terrible and unhelpful. And the entertainment turned off about 3 hours into the flight. (10+ hour flight )"

Pros: "ש"

Pros: "The service and the smiles of the team. Very professional pilot."
Cons: "The food...very bad."

Pros: "The crew was amazing"

Cons: "Check in and boarding. Food. Entertainment system"

Pros: "Crew was friendly, efficient and handle a problem business passenger with a smile and good nature diffusing and placating the passenger even thou the passenger was at fault."
Cons: "Business seats should really recline all the way."

Cons: "Flight was Delayed"

Cons: "The flight was too crowded I was sited next to a sick person which could influence the entier flight. The crow should not allow it to happened or at list give the sick person a mask to avoid spreding the infection. The sites were broken. The toilet didnt fanction and was very dirty. The crow aggres"

Cons: "Food and entertainment"

Cons: "I didn’t like being skipped breakfast and I hated a 2 hours delay."

Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "After this flight - HK to TLV- I decided to avoid El-Al as much as I can (I fly a lot and have matmid). The year is 2018 and there is no justification for an 11-hour flight with no entertainment. I believe that even the airlines of Nigeria or Sudan already have entertainment on their flights. I take long flights often but usually I sleep on the flight. This time I was awake and it was a horrible experience to fly for so long with absolutely no entertainment. So pathetic in comparison to Turkish Airlines for example which has great entertainment on all its flights. Or even to the selection on the El-Al Dreamliner, which I took on the way to HK and which was really nice. Honestly, I was really ashamed to be Israeli and to be El Al matmid member after this flight, are we so backward that we should be OK with not having the most basic comfort that people in the modern world expect on a long flight?"

Cons: "Kosher food is very meager."

Cons: "Every thing"

Pros: "Everythingnone"

Pros: "the crew is very nice"
Cons: "On this flight the seats are a bit narrower and closer together. It did not have the feel of the other fights we have taken in business class el al."

Pros: "Nothing good in this Airline"
Cons: "I will start by saying that they do not featue or demonstrate the safty instruction to the passengers. Very rude crew specially the ladies from the crew, for the 10.5 hours of flight I didn't get any meal. Meals served in dark, the crew start sneaking like BATS in dark, holding meals by hands, which you don't know how they serve it, is it kosher first? or is it first come first serve? or is it a buffee?! they never used a cart and roll it along the isle so you can understand what they doing. Like I said you see them sneaking left and right every one with 2 or 3 boxes hardly trying to look at the seat number, and most of the time they come back with the boxes because they are wrong. I asked one of the crew to call her supervisor so I can complain about that I didn't get any meal, and why they serve food in dark, she said, "He is there go talk to him" other one said "I will call him" but she never did. It is just a mess seeing those crew running left and right without any meaningful way. What I know is that, I will not fly with them again. They are not civilized, it will take them aged to learn from other airlines. I start by saying they do not featue or demonstrate the safty instruction to the passengers. Very rude crew specially the ladies from the crew, for the 10.5 hours of flight I didn't get any meal. Meals served in dark the crew start sneaking like BATS in darl holding meals by hands, which you don't know how they serve it, is it kosher first or is first come first serve or is a buffee! I saw they never used a cart and roll it along the isle so you can understand what they doing. Like I said you see them sneaking left and right every one with 2 or 3 boxes hardly trying to look at seat number, and most of the time they come back with the boxes because they are wrong. I asked one of the crew to call her supervisor so I can complain about that I didn't get any meal, and why they serve food in dark, she said, "He is there go talk to him" other one said "I will call him" but she never did. It is just a mess seeing those crew running left and right without any meaningful way."

Pros: "All was fine"

Cons: "Spent most of the flight watching a good film but the system was shut in the final scene So annoying!!!"

Pros: "on time, friendly crew"
Cons: "old plane, no GPS, tiny video screen far away, revolting food both ways"

Pros: "20 Years I avoided this airline due to lousy service. the team on this flight and previous one from Tel aviv to BCN were A OK"
Cons: "Not enough blankets on return flight"

Pros: "i like that I arrived safely. No delays."
Cons: "I didn't like nor appreciate how the staff interrogated me and treated me prior to boarding the flight. I understand that they have high security, but their attitudes are nasty and inhumane. So therefore I will never fly them again. Not to mention my luggage didn't make it. I had to go on without my luggage. They inspected and reinspected every single item on my carry on for like an hour in a different room. Kinda scary.! Other airlines check the bags in front of the passengers. Horrible experience and I travel a lot and had never experienced anything like that. Almost didn't feel welcome to be traveling to Israel. The flight attendants have attitudes and they yelled at me because I didn't speak or understand hebrew. Food on the plane is horrible too."

Pros: "Received water during the flight. Arrived safely at my destination."
Cons: "Upon arrival to the airport, I was pressurized by the "UP" check-in desk staff to send my carry-on to the plane's hold because "the flight is packed and we prefer that you do so". I didn't argue, but this just gives an overall bad impression and certainly does not shed positive light on the company's competence and professionalism. The flight itself was delayed because of insufficient carry-on space in the upper compartments - carry-ons had to be taken off to the hold - something that created a noticeable delay, add to that the dismay of many irked passengers and the expected complaining and hopeless pleas to the flight attendants. The plane took off 20+ minutes late. The fact that this is "low cost" is no justification at all for such a chaos."

Cons: "They lost my luggage."

Pros: "Well, they were on time. Shockingly."
Cons: "I don't know how El Al gets away with serving people their so-called nightly "meal". They have the audacity to tell passengers it's a "tapas" meal. Tapas has nothing to do with it. You can choose between tuna salad (tuna drowned in mayo with mostly peppers) or chicken with tahini (mostly peppers again, with two small cubes of chicken drowned in tahini). They give you this with a small salad, pita and industrial hummus which is probably the best thing about this meal. Having being burned by this meal last time - they ran out and I got a "glatt kosher" meal - I took the vegetarian option, which was roasted peppers, salad made from 80% lettuce, 20% peppers and no dressing and an inedible cookie. I am allergic to peppers. There is no entertainment to speak of, because El Al sees no reason to update its planes, and there is no personal entertainment system. You can download an app to your phone called "Dream Stream", and stream some options from El Al, but then you have no where to charge your phone, so what's the point? The seats are ridiculously close together, and if someone leans back you really can't eat. Finally, I have no idea why they do this - but El Al flights from Europe don't attach to the terminal via ramp. You get out of the plane on a staircase, in the middle of the night, in the pouring rain, and then have to take a bus to the terminal. It's not like all ramps are busy at 4AM..."

Cons: "nothing"

Cons: "we left an hour and a half late till the crew got it together. They overbooked many seats which caused delay."

Cons: "Don't even know where to start. What can you say when you spend $1500 on a flight that should cost half as much to take off late, land late, have a cruddy run down plane with subhuman amount of leg room, shockingly abysmal screens (the old kind that don't let you choose your entertainment no less) less than mediocre food... I don't expect much flying economy, my expectations are in check. This flight (and my elal flight before it which was delayed 5 hours with no explanation) was just outrageously bad."

Pros: "The food was good, it arrived on time. The film was interesting. The temperature was pleasant"
Cons: "I did not like the seat It was hard to watch TV, I had to bend my neck all the time. I had pain in my neck all the flight. I wish the chair could have been less erect. It was easier to put my head on the chair in front than on the back of my chair"

Cons: "The seats were incredibly uncomfortable sitting in coach sitting. El-al should replace the seats for this plane. It felt almost like sitting on a piece of wood. Also entertainment options were very poor for a 11 hour flight from Boston."

Pros: "They had the perfect shows on the plane, the crew was very nice and positive"
Cons: "In both flights they had a problem with times and scheduele"

Pros: "Despite it all, the crew and staff were not aggressive or rude, tried to be understanding."
Cons: "I have been to Israel 6 times now, and knowing the strenuous security interviews El Al has, I arrived 3 hours before departure time. Even though I'm Jewish and trying to make Aliyah, this time they grilled me about all my precious travels to Muslim countries. I'm a world traveler, so this didn't bother me. It's a normal security measure they take. However they said that they'd like to do additional security checks with me when at the gate. I complied, thinking I have two more hours left. Well... I was taken by car away from the gate to a room full of what looked like migrant workers to something - I was practically strip searched And frisked uncomfortably. They took my carry on backpack, phone and food. Then the forced me to board the plane with only my wallet, passport and phone. Nothing else - I couldn't even take my medicine, headphones, laptop, camera or anything else. I freaked out, knowing I was about to fly 12 hours in the middle row with nothing else to entertain me... luckily a nice man let me charge my phone w his charger and gave me a sleeping pill. Then when we were about to land in Tel Aviv, I'm told both of my bags didn't make the flight... and they'd be delivered to me on the next flight (possibly together, possibly not). So I am here, the luggage is gone, and I hope I get it before my connection in 48 hours... also the entertainment on the plane SUCKED. Bad sound quality and an archaic entertainment system out of the 90's. they should upgrade for maximum comfort. And I was not awoken for the first meal, so I flew 9 hours on an empty stomach. So this was a horrible experience, I'm still traumatized from the security search and upset about the lost luggage, which has my computer, camera and essential medication"

Cons: "Crew at the check in were rude, would not let us return the same handheld suitcases we came with, required we check them in, one which they did let us take was required to be measured again with the "cage" at the gate. The temperature on boath flights was very high even with max airflow. We were not allowed to bring abroad bottled water which we had bought at the duty free at the airport, and the aircraft chair would not recline and was extremely crowded with almost no leg space. Will not recommend!"

Cons: "delay of 2 hours change the food: it is the 3 rd time that I fly with El Al this year, and always the same choice between bolonaise and chicken-rice : no surprise!"

Pros: "We paid a full price and received a service of a low cost flight. Airplane was extremely uncomfortable, food- instead of breakfast- poor sandwiches with no choice for vegan. No earphones or music. It's a shame for el al to charge so high for such a chip and uncomfortable flight and service."

Pros: "Assistance in Budapest was fine. On board crew was friendly."
Cons: "Flight operator was changed in last day when nothing was possible to do. New flight did not has economy class plus where I purchased places because my wife requires extra leg space and special assistance. Upon check in staff was not friendly. I was unable to purchase seats with extra leg space - it was said all is already purchased. I think it was not correct, since it was impossible to purchase any seats in advance through internet and we were first in check in line since my wife was on wheel chair. Except this, two seats in this first row with extra space were finally free (one was occasionally used by crew). Upon arriving to destination wheal chair was nor ready. On her way to taxi may wife had to change seat 3 times: wheel chair, electrical car, again wheel chair - which was very difficult to her. Very bad experience."

Cons: "i am a guide arranging groups to Rome. I arrived 3 hours before the flight - as is required, to find an under-staffed security check . My group of 20 people , some of which were over 80 years old , had to stand 2 hours in line before they where approached. For those that collapsed there were only about 12 chairs in the entire space, for the multitudes that were coming for the flight. i will never fly El -Al to Rome with my groups again, and will not accept the claim that this is "the Ministry of Security" (as the security checkers claimed) , unless i receive an answer to assure that this is to be amended. i purchased tickets from ElAl - and they must provide better standards for and during their security issues."

Pros: "Nothng"
Cons: "They left my bag in Hong Kong. Staff were so rude"

Pros: "very good expreince"
Cons: "delay in flight Food could be improved and be healthier, especially the desert and the bread."

Pros: "the first flight took off on time"
Cons: "the aircraft is too small no room for the legs second flight back had a take off delay of an our and it took and our to collect the luggages."

Pros: "Known to be the safest airline. Food is good and they give you headphones. The crew is nice."
Cons: "The process of getting your ticket and boarding can be very time consuming and stressful. Because it is an Israeli airline they are extremely cautious as to whom they let on to the plane. I was asked questions to see how Jewish I am(what songs did you sing at Passover when you were a child). I did taglit and on one of my flights I was asked questions for 1-2 hours and put into a smaller room to have my belongings searched again. At the end of the day I'm glad they do that because I know it's keeping us all safe."

Pros: "I liked how accommodating the flight attendants were to the difficult crowd we had to deal with, including constant seat shifting to accommodate a mother with 6 children, including babies. The crew was professional, and calm."
Cons: "What we wish to see in 2016 is an entertainment system that gives you more control over what to watch and WHEN to watch it. I want to start a movie at my own pace, and not be limited to an UNKOWN schedule which, if I missed it, I have to wait the next screening. By then I might be busy, sleeping, who knows? Second, charging with a USB entrance is today's standard, and the only option was charging with an Israeli charger, which I don't have. I'm sure these are things that are being upgraded constantly."

Pros: "Friendly staff, decent food."
Cons: "Not being able to choose movies on an international flight in 2016 is absurd. Being limited to the very few "channels" with movies/shows the airline chose, and needing to catch a movie just at the time it's starting, is ridiculously inconvenient."

Pros: "Food was ok service was good . Security excellent"
Cons: "Seat a little small"

Cons: "Every thing was awful. Many delays. Booked the flight from El-Al and got another company"

Pros: "Amazing friendly crew. Spot on entertainment!!!"
Cons: "Toilet facilities could have been cleaner"

Cons: "Someone stole my airpods in my bag. I noticed it once reached at home. This is the first time it happens to me. Very bad experience"

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: "Entertainment is non existent. Plane is tatty."

Pros: "The crew was okay, though a little bit occupied and thus ignoring some of the customers' requests. The seats are comfortable and spacious with enough leg room"
Cons: "The food could have been better. Honestly much better"

Cons: "Flight attendants where bothered to serve us beer, water or any other snack during he flight. I had to beg in both occasions to have my tray taken from my seat."

Pros: "Excellent airline overall Great seats for sleeping"
Cons: "Business class seats are not well appointed Nowhere to put a bottle of water - storage handbag and shoes etc could not be reached without undoing the seatbelt and screen far away from the seat Voice commentary was muffled and therefore unable to be heard"

Pros: "The general attitude of the crew was good"
Cons: "There should be improvement in the food"

Pros: "Leg space, TV screen and entertainment and the decline of the seat."
Cons: "The toilets floors could be cleaned often. The food service cart could move for urgent pass to the toilet."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Always delaying, catastrophic food."

Pros: "Having never even heard of Ethiopian Airline, our expectations weren’t very high. We found the boarding process to work well. The staff was great and the meals were very good. The flights were on time and efficient."
Cons: "On many of the flights we had to use the roll up stairs. The water that they served tasted like tap water. The seats seem closer (less leg room) than other airlines."

Pros: "Everything was on time, high quality, and enjoyable"
Cons: "There was a fight on the llane but it was because a passenger with mental issues was provoked by a couple so ahe beat up the wife. This was not caused by ET and crew at all, but they stopped it."

Cons: "No entertainment available. Rude flight attendants."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "No way to charge a phone!"

Cons: "Old plane. Not comfortable for a relatively long flight"

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."

Pros: "Staff very friendly"
Cons: "Bathroom cleanliness"

Cons: "flight smelled like pee"

Pros: "The food served is awesome and sufficient. The flights are comfortable and the crew are friendly. My luggage came right on time and was properly handled"
Cons: "Well there was no entertainment in the flight. That is it"

Pros: "Loved having traditional ethiopian food"
Cons: "One flight attendant condescending but she seemed to disappear after takeoff and the other ladies were excellent"

Pros: "Aircraft A350 super nice entertainment t equipment and interior very clean."
Cons: "Lost my luggage, could not trace it and no compensation."

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

Pros: "The plane is spacious lost of leg room"
Cons: "can improve on the food"

Pros: "The hospitality"

Pros: "Got a free voucher"
Cons: "My phone was stolen on airport premises They didn't have my requested meal for one of my flights The boeng 737 is tiny. No leg room and was terribly hot."

Pros: "food and beer were fine"
Cons: "4 flights ,4 delays. poor customer service . every thing is very slow ."

Pros: "USB plug, nice TV/ entertainment"

Pros: "Spacious seats"
Cons: "80's airplane. Old. Seats not that comfortable, a bit dirty."

Cons: "I sent them an email about an issue with my flight but they didn't get back to me"

Cons: "I sent them an email about an issue with my flight but they didn't get back to me"

Pros: "Also great experience"

Pros: "צוות אדיב ורגיש לנוסעים ויעיל"
Cons: "האוכל לא היה מגוון לא הכיל פירות או ירקות טריים , היה מבוסס על אורז ופחמימות, לא הוקרן מסךמסלול הטיסה, לא היו אזניות זמינות"

Cons: "Chairs were not reclining. Asked for blanket and didn't get one so I was cold."

Pros: "crew was okay on board."
Cons: "delays, delays and no answers about the schedule from anyone. poor food, poor entertainment. the plane was small, crowded and a disguising smell all over."

Pros: "Again, the cabin crew where all very nice."
Cons: "Seating space was very tight on this plane."

Pros: "Cabin crew were all charming."
Cons: "Unfortunately, I had to request earphones (which were not supplied in the seat pocket in front of me) five times from three different attendants over the course of an hour and a quarter before I was given them. This was not just so I could watch a movie but because the quality of the plane's public address system made it very difficult to listen to the announcements from the captain and the crew. Listening on earphones I was able to hear everything clearly. Why it had to take so long just to give me earphones I don't know."

Pros: "Great prices, and helpful staff"
Cons: "The food was mediocre, almost poor."

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: "Excellent chicken dish"

Pros: "When I originally booked this trip it was with one connection and a 16 hour commute time. They added legs to my trip which significantly increased travel time. I tried to cancel my flight because I booked the flight with the necessity of arriving by specific days and times and they insisted on charging me for it so I just forfeited my seat and trip all together. There's nothing good to say about Ethiopian airlines."
Cons: "They are very unprofessional and unhelpful and I'll never book them again."

Cons: "Crew was not friendly and seemed to ignore my requests. Seat was not comfortable. Food was okay."

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: "On both flights. From Tel Aviv to Addis Ababa and from Addis Ababa to Tel Aviv my seat would not recline. These were night flights and the seat in front of me did recline. so it was a very unpleasent experiance"

Pros: "The food and the crew were nice. The entertainment would go in and out, with the buttons malfunctioning at times."
Cons: "Started boarding 4 hours after scheduled departure. Though there was bad weather, our departure was still delayed way past the "adverse weather" conditions at the airport. In the 4 hours we were in Washington, there was no communication whatsoever. No one to inform us of us potentially missing our ADD to JHB connecting flight. None of the workers wanted to help us."

Pros: "Would have liked to have seen more of the cabin crew, but they were pleasant."
Cons: "Food choice was limited. Ethiopian often ran out of meals and just gave me whatever option they had left. Entertainment system didn't always work properly."

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"
