Boarding took forever! Was disappointed at checkin that they did not let me pay for an upgrade for my mother who has bad legs ! There was a seat available but they kept saying you need points ! I think that’s total BS! I had the money to pay and they made it so so difficult! Mean while onboard there’s a video showing pay upgrades available!!!!! The exit row seats we are were ok but super narrow ! Staff is wonderful
Cons: "Solid flight. Emirates always delivers. Nice snack meal on 60 minute flight."
Cons: "Breads must be at least warm. The breads were frozen."
Pros: "Cold meal was nice, standard business class, no amenities. Nice crew, welcome on board."
Cons: "The crew was in a constant hurry after. The meal was ok, but no cocktails served. Tablet was not working remotely, it has to be connected to the dock all the time. USB port was also not working, did not charge my phone. I’m glad that we did not buy the business upgrade for his flight before. It would felt wasting all our points. Luckily we were upgraded during check in. Check in was awful, they checked in 4 people in front of us roughly in 20 minutes in MLE. It felt like waiting for forever."
Pros: "Food was not good at all. Crew response is poor for help. I pushed button for help and crew total ignored it. When I asked them when they came to serve food after 40mins, said they were busy to respond for help"
Pros: "Great entertainment, great seating and space comfort. Overall a great experience. But, Etihad airways is still better than Emirates."
Cons: "Longer wait for boarding. The assigned zones were the last possible ones. Zone F or something similar. Flight attendants were okay, cared less for economy class. Also, Bluetooth headphones pairing did not work."
Pros: "We flew business class from Dubai to D.C., and the VERY long trip was made so much more endurable with all the amenities offered. For example: - fully reclining seats with mattresses that enable sleep - attentive, thoughtful service - a lounge in which to get a drink or snacks, relax, talk with people - good food and drink - a personal bar at your seat with water and soft drinks We've also flown Emirates in tourist class, and it, too, is far superior to most other airlines. There's more seat room, more leg room, good service, clean bathrooms, and decent food and drink."
Cons: "no negatives"
Pros: "I like the professionalism of the crew. Lots of shops to visit in Athens Airport."
Pros: "Crew is friendly, flight was smooth and timely."
Cons: "Why doesn’t economy class have a passenger lounge for passengers with really long layovers? I had a 15 hour layover and nothing to tide me over during that time. Ridiculous. Every half decent airline out there caters to all classes of passengers. This is an extremely elitist airline. Will definitely try to avoid"
Pros: "Crew was excellent but seemed stretched ."
Cons: "Overall ICE was great but didn't seem to have many new films"
Cons: "It’s frustrating to not have the ability to select seats before arriving at check in counter when there’s really not much to choose from."
Pros: "Everything aside from the food and cabin atmosphere."
Cons: "Food and cabin atmosphere. The cabin felt very stuffy and warm."
Cons: "First plane from Barcelona to Zurich was turned around mid flight for medical emergency. Missed connection flight and had to wait 24 hours for next flight to LA."
Pros: "Best flight for a long time. great service and entertainment."
Cons: "I was unable to order vegetarian meal before the flight. This also a KAYAK / VAYAMA issue - you can not pass the info about special meal to the airline and Swiss seems to require that you order through them in order to specify such details. You should improve this."
Pros: "Good product"
Cons: "Seat had some problems, but the crew fixed it for me"
Pros: "Nice experience."
Cons: "Seats are not so comfortable. Crew is nice, but not too nice"
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Cabin is old and needs updating. For the cost of the ticket, I expected better entertainment, more room, and better food."
Pros: "The staff was polait"
Cons: "No option to make zhek in No opthin for vegeterian The media in my seat didn't work"
Pros: "The boarding process was smooth. The crew was friendly and attentive. Even though it was a short flight, we each got a piece of Swiss chocolate."
Cons: "Like most planes, there was not enough leg room."
Pros: "Everything is great when flying Swiss. From online checkin to boarding and throughout the flight. Thumbs up to Swiss. Simply a delight."
Pros: "The departure and arrival times were good in order to sleep the night, and wake up in Tokyo refreshed. Cabin crew were fairly friendly, but not the Cathay of a few years ago."
Cons: "NONE of the business class center seats would recline. This meant in order to recline and get some rest, the crew had to dismantle your seat and release the locks manually. This meant the seat was in that position until time to land. So I had to make a choice to sleep or eat, horrible for CX."
Pros: "Nice entertainment on this flight, modern movies and TV programs. The food was good, more than enough to fill you up on a 4.5 hr flight."
Cons: "The business class configuration on the 777s operates on this flight is not worth the extra price paid. I found that the level of recline (120 degrees) made my back ache and it just wasn’t comfortable. I’ve flown this flight several times now and this is an issue for me. I’d like to arrive refreshed"
Pros: "The seats are fairly comfortable, and the service was great."
Cons: "The economy seats are obviously not great. The extended legroom seats are still quite narrow, though the legroom is great."
Cons: "Did not inform us of a flight delay until way after the flight time had past. Waited an extra to take off."
Pros: "I was fortunate to be upgraded as a frequent flyer on this airline"
Cons: "Poor cabin crew service in this instance."
Cons: "A very old product in the CX fleet. The old exonomy seat is terrible. Service was not attentive. Entertainment system was not responsive. CX is definitely going downhill."
Cons: "The seat was a bit small for me, legroom a bit tight."
Pros: "Food. Space."
Cons: "When the front passage reclines, the TV screen was too close for comfort."
Pros: "Boarding on time"
Cons: "Food was not fresh. Some crews could not understand English well"
Cons: "Signs on the airport screens were not updated in time so estimated departure times passes without boarding notices."
Pros: "The crew was nice and it wasn't a full flight so we had room."
Cons: "The food wasn't very good and the headphones were a bit uncomfortable"
Cons: "For international flights every passenger should be allowed to bring one suitcase for free, I am traveling with my children for family of 6 they charge $70 dollars per person and the grand total charges for suitcases came to $350 dollars. Too much and unfair"
Pros: "The crew was courteous and pleasant. Boarding was quick. Airplane was clean. Blankets were warm. Food was good."
Cons: "Aircraft old so entertainment was not on the individual seat. Seats were hard and didn’t recline too much. Leg room was decent. Check in was horrible. 45 minute line."
Pros: "The crew was ok"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for almost 3 hours while we were already sitting in the airplane"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, crew was not helpful in my cabin, entertainment system was outdated and totally broken at my seat."
Pros: "Flight was amazing but my connection in Barcelona to Tel Aviv was a bit stressful. I couldn't check in via app or phone, When I arrived at security in Barcelona, security would not allow me to pass without a boarding pass. So I had to leave the gate area and go to El Al ticket counter."
Cons: "I almost missed my flight because of this. I called Expedia staff and they weren't much help. Next time I will be better prepared when booking flights to Tel Aviv."
Pros: "Everything went went really well. The only problems was a delay of several hours which they posted so I knew in advance."
Pros: "Clean airport and airline. I was on the new Dreamliner. Book business you don’t want to be in the back."
Cons: "For obvious reasons security is tight. However, they do not warn you sufficiently about the screening and security process. It took 2 hours alone to get through security and it was a light crowd. I can only imagine if it was packed or during major EU or Israeli holiday. They try to move people fast but security folks are all very young so they require a lot of supervision and need oversight so they stop and go for questions with trained team members."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "No individual entertainment unless youve already downloaded the program to your computer. Non-supportive headrest made it hard to sleep"
Pros: "I did like the breakfast provided, eggs were good. Dinner was fine too, I liked that hummus was provided.. seats were comfortable. There were sufficient bathrooms."
Cons: "Even though the seats were comfortable, the legroom was not."
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: "The landing was smooth and so was the whole flight! Loved it"
Cons: "Food. I ended up throwing up shortly after eating"
Pros: "Crew is friendly."
Cons: "The plane is old, tatty and dirty. There is no entertainment. The airport transfer is very very shoddy."
Cons: "Language barriers are always hard, i sat next to someone who didn’t speak English well, one of the flight crew sounded irritated instead of understanding."
Pros: "It was perfect to me , im in so much pain spiritually and you guys makes me feel home."
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "I received flying miles for this flight, well actually I really tried to find something positive to say"
Cons: "spent 19+ hrs in the airport in Addis Abeba, when I was supposed to be transferred to a hotel, needless to say, the airport at night is not the best place a woman would like to spend her time."
Pros: "The crew was professional yet very friendly. Everything was great. Enjoyed my trip"
Pros: "The flight crew was nice. We received a hot lunch even though it was a short flight which was nice."
Cons: "Boarding was interesting. It should have been an easy boarding as it is a small regional airport. Instead it seemed they went out of their way to make it as confusing as possible. Instead of going through security over here lets have you wrap around the hallway to just have to come back to where you were before?"
Pros: "Auto-adjusting windows"
Cons: "Understaffed. The plane looked and felt old. Food was sub-par."
Pros: "I took a roundtrip to Addis Abeba, Ethiopia from Washington, DC. The trip was 13 hours there and 16 on the way back (I think that included a refueling stop in Dublin). There was plenty of food and beverages provided throughout the flight - usually every 3 hours or so. Blankets, pillows, and several movie/entertainment were provided."
Cons: "I would prefer the the main cabin lights be kept off longer."
