Work on entertainment systems and seat comfort. Seats are very old and worn out. Entertainment systems not working,

Cons: "The fact that they confirmed that my luggage would make it to my final destination, and now that I arrived in dakar with no luggage it’s no longer there responsability"
Cons: "They overbooked and pushed us to later flight, later flight boarded late, on run way 2 hours, plane maintenance issue so changed aircraft—supposed to arrive 1:30pm, arrived after 10pm, gate agent erased reservation adding frequent flyer number so my seat was given to someone else and I sat finally in last row by toilet instead of with my family—then no one can find record of my return flight and Ethiopian contact number impossible to reach.

Pros: "Again, the cabin crew where all very nice."
Cons: "Seating space was very tight on this plane."
Pros: "WHY serve dinner at 12 midnight? The lights are kept on in the cabin making it difficult to sleep. Too little time to sleep and too much time taken up with bar and food service."
Cons: "NON arrival of luggage at Tel Aviv. See above"
Cons: "We were delayed for 30 minutes, then for one hour, then they announced a delay for 3 hours. They changed the gate twice and the staff was not communicating what is happening and when we are supposed to board. Also, they did not add my miles for my connecting flight."
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: "Poor service, not organized, dirty aircraft"
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Food seemed of poor quality."
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 friendliness of the crew and their spirit of hospitality make this company stand our from others. Also the new aircrafts and the amenities on board are a big plus."
Pros: "The crew was very nice, beer on the flight is always a nice touch , plenty of food and beverages. Nice collection of movies and music. Food is OK. We had a 10 Hour connection at Addis Ababba, and we were provided with a city tour at the first time, and hotel at the second. I liked the Injira :)"
Cons: "Overall, it's kinda depressing to fly with Ethiopian, the whole experience, from the colors of the uniforms, to the big African people, there was not enough room to seat next to other person, we and some people we met on the flight experienced the same thing. Addis Ababba was very not welcoming, we had a small tour at the city, the people are aggressive, we heard a lot of "farengie" all the time - "foreigners", everything was very expensive, because tourist have a lot of money... they are not afraid to touch you, even at the face. if somebody offers you guiding, they will ask for money later on and will take you to expensive places."
Pros: "Plane from AA to tA seats very cramped and seats do not recline."
Cons: "I ordered a vegan food. The crew had difficulties in delivering this simple thing"
Cons: "My entertainment system didn't work and there was no vegetarian option. I would have registered for the vegetarian option ahead of time, but when I tried to do online check in, it didn't work."
Business class was regular seat with nobody sitting next to you. Wouldn’t book business for such a flight. No entertainment.
Pros: "Everything was amazing"
Cons: "The process to travel"
Pros: "Early morning flight so left on time and arrived early. Staff excellent."
Cons: "Seats are grim like most European carriers in coach..."
Pros: "The crew reacted good to the change of plane"
Cons: "Needed to replace plane because of technical problem, that should have detected earlier. The business seats are standard seats. No water through the flights. Very bad experience"
Pros: "Good seats"
Cons: "Boarding process and Entertainment options. Availability of Snacks would also been good"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable. Entertainment system stopped working part way through"
Cons: "Boarding at Brussels was awful. After arriving from another international city and having to go through security, I was informed , just before boarding that I had to go to a location 20 gates away and wait in a long line for another security sticker. It was very confusing."
Pros: "This flight was eventually cancelled and the rating is solely on the ground experience. EuroWings could not have done anything worse. The process took from 10:30am upon arrival in Dusseldorf til 11:00pm when we were told the counter closed at 10pm and nothing could be done till next day."
Cons: "Have representatives on the ground and make public announcements about the progress, next steps, help offered and steps that need to be taken. The info was sparse and had to be gotten on an individual basis. Nothing was coordinated or communicated and every step had to be done WITHOUT HELP."
Cons: "vegetarian dish was very poor. main dish was ok but quite small, the light dish (breakfast?) was just a piece of bread, might as well not serve anything. Entertainment was very poor, limited selection of movies and very silly tv shows."
Pros: "vegetarian dish was OK."
Cons: "entertainment was very poor. very limited selection of movies and tv shows."
Pros: "Nothing, they cancelled my flight and rebooked me to another city"
Cons: "Everything. I had to buy 2 new tickets because they cancelled my flight"
Pros: "Good schedules, good prices."
Cons: "They think that a five-hour flight is "intra-European" so they assign tiny little planes with bad seats and cramped rows. Unacceptable."
Cons: "25 min late too much announcements during night flight, especially about duty free items and prices..."
Pros: "On our longer flight, we were thrilled- nice crew, delicious food, spacious, great pilot, and enjoyable entertainment experience. However, on our shorter flight from Brussels to telaviv, not only was the crew completely inattentive, but they were intentive to some very disturbing things including children who were pulling the hair of other customers and jumping up-and-down in the aisles of the airplane. There was no available entertainment whatsoever. In addition the food was extremely expensive and not particularly tasty. The plane was uncomfortable and smelled atrocious. These 2 vastly different experiences almost made me feel like I was taking 2 different airlines. Please keep consistency."
Cons: "I didn't like the inconsistency of the 2 different planes that I was on. If you are going to have entertainment you should have some form of it on all of your airplanes. The idea that food that you need to buy is so expensive is absurd. I was really blown away by how badly the plane smelled. It was almost as if I was in a bathroom. And on top of that I really felt very unsafe with children jumping up-and-down kicking people pulling their hair etc. While it isn't the job of the flight attendants to be parents, they certainly need to be aware of safety concerns for the rest of the passengers."
Pros: "The crew were pleasant."
Cons: "Not enough beverage service. Only had the chance for 1 glass of wine with meal. Would have liked a water station set up so that you can help yourself whenever needed. Boring/very limited movie selection."
Pros: "Brussels Air was on time, attendants were courteous, plane was clean and in great condition. For a discount flight, it was great!"
Cons: "Despite the fact that I reserved a window seat, I was assigned a seat in the middle of the center row. They also 'sanitized' the airplane twice after that closed the doors before take off. They walked up and down the aisle with aerosol spray cans. I don't think people should be subject to unknown chemicals in order for the airline to save time on cleaning the cabin before take off."
Pros: "Nice crew, old equipment"
Cons: "All food for purchase. Not even complimentary nuts. All drinks are for purchase. Including water!!! 4 hours flight not a glass of water unless you pay 3 euro. No entertainment. No USB or electric outlets. Thanks for not charging for use of bathroom."
Pros: "Film selection"
Cons: "Food was disgusting"
Cons: "1,5 hour delay flight from Brussels to Venice and no service with hot tea or coffee for appologize :("
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Small aircraft. Not enough space. I was asked to check in my hand luggage. Austrian airlines should change the aircraft they use for this route"
Cons: "Food was bad. Crew was distracted gossiping. They skipped rows during meal times as they were distracted. The seats are the most uncomfortable airline seats I've ever sat in."
Pros: "Excellent service and a safe flight."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable, no refreshments. Everyone on the flight was suprised to find that food and drink cost money. The entire flight, the crew was selling something and you could not pass in aisle or even use toilet for half the fight. No entertainmrnt on a flight of 4.5 hrs and this was not supposed to be a low cost flight."
Cons: "after a long flight from the states, no water in the connection flight. all security checks all over again. very crowded. air brussels you need to be improved."
Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "The flight to Brussels was canceled and we had to spend the whole night at the airport until someone started to give us some attention On the way back they put me and my friends very far from each other and we had to pay even for water on the flight"
Pros: "Everything about the airline"
Pros: "Very nice people in the crew. Excellent entertainment equipment."

Cons: "Completely chaotic service."
Pros: "On time Polite crew"
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "I paid for a ticket that includes a hot meal, but a day before the flight they changed their policy so I didn't get any meal. They even asked for money for a cup of water, and this is my red line. The seats recline and comfort is poor."
Pros: "Crew was vey professional. Arrival in Rome was to a gate rather than a bus, which was unusual but nice. Baggage delivery was also surprisingly quick for Rome. The Brussels Airlines lounge in Brussels airport is fantastic!"
Cons: "The flight departure was delayed 1 1/2 hours, meaning we arrived in Rome at nearly midnight. No complimentary drinks on board. As a Star Alliance Gold member, I chose Brussels Airlines out of loyalty. But the cheap approach to customer care means I will have to reconsider flying with you in the future."
Pros: "Small plain. No interlaken. Cold food"
Cons: "Very noisy crew Not enough space for hand bugs."
Cons: "bad customer service. No reliable information about the flight. How someone who never took an airplane can know that you have to get a visa when going to canada. If your ticket says your last destination is us. And i did not even got a full refund for their stupid mistake. Lack of information. You guys should be more careless for your customers."
Pros: "leg space is quite big"
Cons: "the food was poor - Cold Pasta salad"
Pros: "flight staff were very professional."
Cons: "Rows are very close together. We were packed in like sardines. Stewardesses prevent people from going to the toilets in the back when they are serving, and do not allow access to the toilet in the front. Not "user-friendly"."
Pros: "Nothing. Wanted it to be over already"
Cons: "Thw flight attendents gave a really bad service. They forgot to bring me food. The plain was really small and crowded... There was a lot of noise."
Pros: "Flight from US was wonderful. Plane had everything you would want. Food was good and seats comfortable."
Cons: "Flight from Brussels to Kinshasa was different. It seems for the people of color, there was an old plane. My seat mate TV sCreek did not work. You could tell moldings on seat were very old. one bathroom had no soap, dispenser was broken. I hope this is not your pratice to use your older planes for those traveling to Africa. I will observe this as I travel back to Brussel and on to US."
Cons: "Terrible food, very small and crowded aircraft."
Pros: "Great food and nice crew. They had good tv shows."
Cons: "I don't have anything to complain about."
Cons: "Had to change a tire on the plane - they checked us through at the gate but didn't allow us on the plane - which makes sense. However, they should have NOT checked us through at the gate. Dozens stood for over a half hour waiting to move forward. They wouldn't let us back into the gate area to sit. Poor planning"
Pros: "1st time on Brussels. Wonderful overall trip."
Cons: "The meal home was not so good."
Cons: "the airbus apparently has warm spots, and could not avoid being too warm for international flight. Once arrived in Malaga, Spain, no signs whatsoever telling me to go to different baggage belt to find my luggage."
Cons: "Lousy treatment to passengers/customers"
Pros: "got there.."
Cons: "my bag was lost, delayed flight (2 hours), damaged contents in my bag."
