Pros: "Great service & very comfortable lie flat business class seat for this red eye flight."
Pros: "Boarding was very smooth."
Cons: "We were seated in the last row, and by the time the food came around, 2 of the 3 entree options were unavailable. We had to have fish or not get an entree at all."
Pros: "So many carriers have cut back on so many things, our flight on Qatar Airlines felt like a throwback to the days when flying was enjoyable. Everything about our flight was better than we have come to expect from most other airlines. To highlight one surprise - the in-flight meals were high quality."
Pros: "Seat where comfortable and thank needed more leg space"
Cons: "Good was poor bcz going and back was same menu of choice of food."

Pros: "The food and flight staff were good"
Pros: "Food and service."
Pros: "Good movie selection, very friendly crew"
Pros: "Good service."
Cons: "Poor choice of entertainment."
Pros: "Choice of flight from Utapao really was a no brainer. 45 minutes from home to departure lounge, had I flown from Bangkok I would still have been on the motorway! Everything went like a dream, a huge thank you to all at Qatar Airways, a true quality service."
Pros: "Helpful and friendly flight staff, comfortable business class seating that provided privacy and room for personal carry-on bag and toiletries."

Pros: "It was my first time traveling on business class and I had an amazing experience, friendly and helpful crew, they always made sure that I was doing fine and if I needed anything or any help. Healthy options on they food menu and delicious food and beverages. I am looking forward to traveling with Qatar airways again in the future."
Cons: "Would prefer more options on they entertainment menu."
Pros: "Great service by the flight crew! Friendly and competent. Food is decent but not quite up to Emirates. Kudos to QA for investing in the A-350. Quiet and comfortable."
Cons: "The headphone jack on my entertainment system was defective."
Pros: "Plane wasn't full, which was nice."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. Starting the pre-boarding process into an area without a restroom was horrible. Not allowing us to bring a water bottle on a 14-hour flight was cruel. Movie selection could be better. Additionally, it seems like the Qatar airport is becoming more like a US airport. Agents were barking orders and the pre-boarding process was slow. It was not a good start to the flight."
Pros: "I was promised Wifi on all flights when I called customer service and I was frustrated I only had it on 2 out of the 4 flights ... And the connection was bad. I needed to work and planned on it after I heard the wifi was available for purchase."
Cons: "Did not like there was no wifi when I was told there was. The food was good and the service as well... It was comfortable !"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "Not much of space in aircraft"

Pros: "Same as stated for the flight BKK-DOH"
Cons: "I was quite happy with the facilities and service ."
Pros: "I liked nothing on this flight!"
Cons: "Very hard to believe that Qatar is described as a "world-class airline". I took a total of 4 flights on Qatar Airways in a 2-week span. First flight was from New York to Doha (not bad). Second flight was from Doha to Nairobi (not bad). Third flight was from Nairobi to Doha (not bad) and the fourth and final flight was from Doha to New York (unbearable!!!) My first issue with the Qatar Airways was a checked parcel not arriving at my destination. When we reached Nairobi, I was told my parcel that I had checked in New York, was still in New York. It was a card board tube of materials required for a work initiative at a Kenyan hospital. Returning to Nairobi airport several days later created a hassle that I won't soon forget! Now to describe the journey back to the United States. The flight from Doha to New York is the flight I want to focus on. The flight was extremely crowded and the conditions were absolutely deplorable! I cannot fathom how a self-proclaimed "world-class airline" could pack a plane that full and compound that with a 14 hour flight! I felt so badly for the airline staff. They were stretched so thin that they couldn't accommodate the passengers. There was garbage all over the plane and the bathrooms were filthy; garbage cans overflowing with waste and dirty diapers. There was an exceptionally high number of infants and children on this flight. I love children. I have 3 children myself. I felt terribly for the children AND adults on this flight because everyone was absolutely miserable. I never thought it could be possible for there to be 14+ hours of crying babies and children. It was absolutely maddening. The airline staff were so busy that they couldn't even assist with the babies and children which I found to be so completely unconventional for any airline, especially one of this alleged caliber. I do feel that there should be a separate section of planes for infants and children so that the crying etc can be confined to one area and passengers aren't exposed to what we were exposed to. The man behind me verbalized what I had been feeling when he stated "If I could, I would jump off of this plane. This is torture". The purpose of my trip was a global health mission to Kenya for a hospital to hospital partnership. Other team members in my group requested an upgrade and offered to pay cash. We were all appalled to be denied. The Qatar Airline staff couldn't process the upgrade and we still can't understand why. Seems a shame for the airline to have lost all that potential profit. For me, this was a return trip (I had been there in March 2015). Last year I flew Swiss Air and Brussels Air where I had much more enjoyable flights without any incidents. I will be notifying all of my friend, relatives, and colleagues of this nightmare experience and will certainly advise them against flying Qatar Airways."
Pros: "Excellent service in flight"
Cons: "If you have issues during the booking or pre-flight stage Qater Airways isn't always customer friendly. It's a bit hit and miss based on the customer service agent who picks up your call."
Cons: "They made me check my hand luggage, did not pay attention to what airline I would get on my connection flight, neither got my warnings about it. They sent my bag directly to my destination but the other airline wouldn't pick up."
Cons: "Fewer fat peasants with too much hand luggage. Seriously, control the hand luggage before people bring it aboard."
Cons: "Great service, friendly team and most importantly great food"
Pros: "The service was great, crew was sweet and accommodating, food was good"
Cons: "Seats were a bit uncomfortable...but what do you expect after an 11 hour and 20 minute flight?"
Cons: "Boarding I was with my family but they didn’t give me the seats in one row my kids some where else my wife was in another seat and I was also so far from everyone That was not fair"
Pros: "10hour flight tine"
Cons: "Poor coordination during boarding No snacks offered."
Cons: "- Boarding took too much time because the airline called all passengers to board, instead of asking to board by their seat zone. - The space between seat is too narrow so I couldn't stretch my legs. - The seats are very old and little bit dirty - The seats were not properly cleaned."
Pros: "Cozy big leather seats in Business Class, excellent breakfast and good service overall. Turkish Airlines continued to amaze me."
Cons: "Boarding by bus - not my favorite way of getting on a plane. Probably not the airlines's fault."
Pros: "CREW WAS VERY GOOD AT THEIR JOB"
Cons: "WEBSITE FOR CHECK IN WAS A BIT CONFUSING"
Cons: "Flight arrived 20 mins late. Luckily my connection is 12 hours later"
Pros: "Good food, comfort seat"
Cons: "Crew skipped my row when giving food and didn't realize until I came and asked. None of the crew showed their apology"
Cons: "Big uncertainty and running to catch the connection flight. Bad feeling. Probably the delay was not caused by the airline, but the crue could not guarantee that the connection woul wait."
Pros: "Nothing much to shout about this flight. It got there safely?"
Cons: "At 31" the pitch is terrible for a tall guy like myself. The screen was old and unresponsive, and there wasn't even a pleasant crew to supplement. How it won Best European Airline befuddles me."
Cons: "This was the worst I have ever experienced. My flight arrived into Istanbul and 45 minutes until the departure I was told it had already left. I later found out something very similar had happened to a man from London, a couple from Boston, three people from Ghana, and many more that were taken advantage of in an attempt to sell tickets for them to go home. Never in my life have I seen such corruption first hand in a business that claims to be professional. I travel with them roughly twice a year so I'm not really a huge spender when it comes to their service, however I have suggested many to use their airlines. Never again will I make this mistake, and never again will I fly with them. I think I would rather spend the few extra hundred dollars than to have to experience that again. Turkish airlines you have lost my service and my respect."
Pros: "Great entertainment system (though nothing new since my last flight 2 weeks ago)."
Cons: "As all airplanes, seats are somewhat cramped, and the food, while good enough, is pretty much the same it is on every Turkish Airlines flight. Some more variety might be nice."
Cons: "Older plane, uncomfortable seats, no individual entertainment systems. Long boarding without a lot of staff facilitating extra coat/overhead luggage storage because of winter, then we sat on tarmac for two hours because they missed their slot to take-off."
Pros: "Entertaiment was good with choices on the latest movies and live sports channels. Boarding was fast enough and the crew are friendly."
Cons: "The seats are not able to be lowered and for a 11.5hrs flight, thats really painful. Food wasnt really tasty and portion seems smaller compare to other flights i had been on."
Pros: "Food was good but needs bigger portion."
Cons: "Not many choice for drinks, some fly attendance need to know smiling is good ."
Pros: "Excellent customer service, crew always helpful and glad to please."
Cons: "Atatürk airport link too confusing and decreased my flight experience"
Pros: "The food is great and so is the entertainment system."
Cons: "Unfortunately the aircon didn't work properly before takeoff in Singapore. The plane only cooled down when it was in the air."
Cons: "Headphones did not work"
Pros: "I am not blaming the airline at all for these inconveniences."
Cons: "NOTE: THIS IS NOT A CRITIC OF THE AIRLINE Having personally experienced the latest in the consequences of travel related rules mandated by US public officials, I am yet again left wondering if they, and their families, go through these rules that they impose on the general public. Or if they just breeze into their private airport wings and planes. I doubt they take off shoes, belts, and such, or go through irradiated machines. But going through about 3 extra layers of security while transiting is a bit much. Not to mention the extra hours spent relinquishing and reclaiming laptops etc. Frankly, non of these acts makes anything safer. It is akin to the permanently parked police vehicle on the Brooklyn Bridge in NYC since 9-11. What is that supposed to deter?"
Pros: "Meals, friendliness and warmth of staff, restrooms were routinely maintained, movies."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Comfortable plane Good food Friendly service"
Pros: "It was s safe flight."
Cons: "We were forced to go through numerous security checks. The last check was at the gate and our carry-ons were searched yet again and our laptops, cameras and iPads were taken. Apparently we cannot bring these items on the plane and no one told us, the customers who paid to board this flight. Plus the wifi was not free. And when we tried to use the wifi code we were given from the crew as a "perk" from our camera Ana iPads being taken, that still did not work. So that was a 13 hr flight with no wifi. Plus on my flight from Istanbul to Atlanta my Tv did not work and the crew didn't speak English and could not understand my complaint. Overall the worst flight ever, close to a Delta flight which everyone knows is the bottom of the barrel of airlines. When we finally arrived in Atlanta it took 3 HOURS to get our baggage. We landed at 7:45 PM and did not get our bags until 11 pm. We were not told what the delay was and to just be patient. I will a NEVER take this airline agin."
Pros: "Everything about this airline is really good. We will flight again as much as possible using Turkish Airlines. Thank you crew and onboard for the great service."
Cons: "Long layover wait in Istanbul"
Pros: "Luggage left in Istanbul due to short connjection was delivered to my home the same evening. Check in was simple and quick."
Cons: "Seats too close together on A330 airplane, entertainment console difficult to use and flight attendent did not have patience to explain how to use it, ran out of main course and remaining chicken course was too spicy to eat, flight from Singapore was delayed in takeoff making it very difficult to make connecting flight,"
Pros: "Nothing important"
Cons: "It was impossible to watch the films, the system was inaccessible"
Pros: "Good Food, Comfortable Seats & Good Entertainment Options"
Pros: "I liked everything about the flight. Smoth flight good cabine crew and great service from stuardes"
Cons: "Everything was good no reason not to like turkish airlines. I enjoy everytime i travel from kabul to istambul and from istanbul to prishtina and vise versa"
Pros: "Blankets, pillow, being served food and drinks regularly on a long flight, great choice of new movies."
Cons: "Touch screen did not always work."
Pros: "Despite all other issues I got to Vienna on time."
Cons: "- there was a gate change less than half an hour before boarding, which was not announced via speaker or on the screen in the previous gate - therefore most people were still in the previous gate and only because one of the passengers realized and communicated the change everyone else became aware of it as well -> then everyone ran to the new gate, which did not have enough seating and where children were crying because they did not understand the hectic - On board - just before departure - two families got into an argument and yelled at each other and the crew. They were very loud and aggressive. - Usually I love the food Turkish Airlines serves, but this time I had dry and oily pasta and a very strange and too sweet chocolate mousse. I did not enjoy eating this and it did not taste fresh at all. - There was no entertainment."
Cons: "I could not find a way to ask for cancellation or reschedule"
Pros: "Comfort Movie Selection Friendly Hostess Thoughtfulness"
Cons: "Seat was small and squeezy. More variety for food needed."
Pros: "Boarding was on time and departure as well."
Cons: "Entertainment in the whole plain did not work. At arrival we waited about 30 min before exiting the plain."
Pros: "Nice new plane, decent food, friendly staff, incredible selection of movies. Appreciated the fact that the cabin wasn't freezing for once."
Cons: "Terrible, slow checkin process. Some people treated the checkin counter as their personal therapist, coffee house, I don't know what.., they held up the line for ages and staff was doing nothing to speed them up and move them along."
Cons: "YOU destroy the traveler Luggage at this trip and there is some items missing . Thank you"
Pros: "This was my first time flying with Turkish Airlines, and I had a great experience. I travel internationally a lot and it has been by far the best airline I have been onl."
Cons: "Nothing. All good"
Pros: "The transfer flight was also very nice."
Cons: "The only thing that was a bit annoying was the delay - it was delayed for almost 1 hour."
Pros: "I HAD AN AISLE SEAT AND ALL WAS WELL."
Pros: "I liked that a crew member was on the plane to help passengers put their roller bags into the overhead compartments. The serving crew was very friendly.and helpful. The dinner meal was one of the best that I've had on an airline in economy."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "Good food & service."
Cons: "Extremely cramped seating with inadequate space between knees & seat in front making the trip unnecessarily uncomfortable."
Pros: "Much bigger plane, more space. WAY better."
Cons: "Insufficient information at boarding where we were going."
I've never been served three bread courses in a single meal before. Was really impressed by the novelty of that.
Pros: "Amazing friendly crew. Spot on entertainment!!!"
Cons: "Toilet facilities could have been cleaner"
Cons: "1 hr delay in departure from Lusaka. Plastic cutlery was difficult to eat with. More frequent water/drinks (or waterbottles instead of little cups) would have been appreciated. Movie options were not as good as other airlines."
Cons: "1 hr delay in departure from Lusaka. Plastic cutlery was difficult to eat with. More frequent water/drinks during the flight (or water bottles instead of little cups) would have been appreciated. Movie options were not as great as other airlines."
Cons: "Plane was very very old"
Pros: "Asked for water that I never received. Wasn’t allowed to bathroom although still 20 min until landing and other people still got up"
Pros: "Seat was very comfortable and the air stewards were good"
Cons: "The entertainment system not working correctly and the food was poor"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and all flight details were available and constantly updated."
Cons: "Ethiopians App for self check-in."
Pros: "The arm rest was dismantled and had a sharp edge of metal which sliced my arm and thumb when I sat down. I was promised a new seat and never delivered. Horrendous."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Crew was helpful. I had 3 seats to myself, so yes. Seating was amazing."
Cons: "The lunch - tooo much rice no sauce. Food was okay. The sandwich was good."
Pros: "Crew was good. Aircraft was fresh and clean."
Cons: "The movie selection is very mediocre"
Pros: "Champagne; boarding via SATS business class was smooth but I doubt Ethiopian has much responsibility or this."
Cons: "The rest: even mediocre fast food would have been better. The starter was some chewy rosebeef, the main where soggy chicken nuggets. The butter served was rancid! Gross. Also big difference between the older and newest 787! This was the older☹️. Ground crew unhelpful."
Pros: "Excellent service and on time performance."
Pros: "The ravioli was great, some of the other food was not great. Otherwise, the flight was easy."
Cons: "More entertainment options, the movies and TV shows offered are not varied or very good."
Pros: "Not much, actually."
Cons: "None of the air stewardess has a smile on their face when talking to or serving passengers. I’m not sure they know how to engage with passengers in a friendly way. My entertainment screen wasn’t working. After resetting, it took them an hour to inform me that I could move to another seat if I wanted to, as they couldn’t resolve the problem with the screen. The food lacked in flavour and the sausage served for breakfast was undercooked."
Pros: "the flight was very nice and I thank all the crew for their kindness."
Pros: "The flight was bigger. So didn't feel so cramped up"
Cons: "The flight attendant were not helpful after ringing the bell multiply times I had to get up myself to get a glass of water. Entertainment not updated Food no change in menu"
Cons: "Nothing. Very smooth"
Pros: "we had an overnight stay in addis ababa so we got a free accommodation in town, that was so great, a chance to see town and get a good night sleep before our next flight. the plane is big with screens so you can watch movies, the seat is comfortable, even for a tall guy like me (1.9 m)."
Cons: "It did took a lot of time since we landed until we got our bus to take us to town to our hotel. we waited in the airport for more than one hour, it was late, and we were tired. but after we got to the hotel, it was perfect"
Pros: "Staff are friendly and pleasant. Seats are comfortable with more space than some airlines.Good choice of films."
Cons: "This was probably the worst boarding I have ever seen. They called the Paris flight while people were still boarding for Frankfurt. It was chaotic, with people struggling to find which line to be in. There was no visible guidance from Ethiopian ground crew. Eventually got in line. One guy checking boarding passes for both business and economy. Very slow with again no crowd control. Children were not given priority. Eventually many people went through business queue while others had been waiting in economy. Ground staff were standing around watching and not helping or communicating. Poor show from Ethiopian!"
Cons: "Spent 10 hours in a broken seat... wouldn’t recline. Screen on next seat was broken so I couldn’t move there. Bathroom out of toilet paper and at the end of the flight there was SO MUCH TRASH AND STUFF EVERYWHERE it looked like the ground at an outside 3 day concert. I’ve never seen such a filthy plane. And the food needs improvement."
Pros: "Ethiopian Airlines it great."
Pros: "Attendants were courteous and the spacing is better than some airlines, but that’s about it."
Cons: "Check in was a disaster: no logical control of 100s of people; delayed on the tarmac for 1:45 for a “minor technical reason” that apparently had nothing to do with the actual operation of the plane that prevented me from making my next flight. Food was terrible. Flight attendants could have been more helpful about my missed connection."
Pros: "New plane fantastic cabin"
Cons: "There was a fight but nothibg to do with the flight crew just some passenger with mental issues"
Pros: "I like that the bulkhead seats (typically where the baby bassinet is placed) have electrical outlets which I used to easily charge my phone; and that there is nice legroom space."
Cons: "Economy is a bit tight; the bidding process for Cloud Nine (business class) has reduced the chance of passengers being upgraded for free especially as a means to reward frequent flyers, or help passengers with special needs/accommodations."
Pros: "It is an African airline so I am doing my best to support it. I am grateful I was allocated to a hotel for my long layover"
Cons: "I had a long layover in Addis and the hotel I was allocated to could improve its service. I was expected to be served breakfast in the morning. My flight was at 820 am There could be some improvement on food"
Pros: "Ethiopian beer, a first for me -- not bad."
Cons: "Where is the famous Ethiopian arabica coffee?"
Cons: "comfort of the seats. the made the flight early to 0730 am and still serving lunch at 0830 in the morning. All was bad"
Pros: "We were told by United that Ethiopian Airlines does not allow more than 2 checked bags per customer, but that is absolutely not the case. We ended up driving to LA and found that Ethiopian accepts as many bags as we will pay for."
Pros: "Am very impressed with the service, and punctuality. The crew are friendly, helpful and respectful. I love the airline operating timeline of leaving Nigeria and getting to US same day. Also the fare is very reasonable. Advertise more, let people know u Pls enhance and expand ur Advertisment among nigerians. Am already spreading d good news among our friends and colleagues. Ethiopian Airline is d way to go"
Cons: "It took too long for d luggages to come out. Pls improve on it"
Pros: "Spacious, good entertainment system"
Cons: "Transit at Bole International is awful. No gates for aircraft to dock which seems to be a common problem these days, slowing down the boarding and alighting processes."
Pros: "The worst airline company I've ever used"
Pros: "After a bit of confusion in ADD airport, we reached the terminal where my connecting flight was leaving from. Terminal 1 of ADD airport should be avoided at all costs! Boarding and the flight crew did a admirable and top job and made the difference for me."
Cons: "Terminal 1 Disgusting. Rundown, embarrassing, chaos everywhere and no real sense of security. No police or security presence. You could just walk right into a gate! I was shocked to see this especially being from NYC. If you can avoid Terminal 1 do so. The seats were DISGUSTING! Dirty, warped fabric seating was dirty and caked on. Smelled and many seats were visually broken. I'm glad I brought with me some Clorox wipes to wipe my area down with. You get what you pay for but wow! I would not spend my money on this airline again."
Pros: "Crew members were friendly, movie selection was good, food was nice as well"
Cons: "When checking in I asked if I'd need to collect my bags and recheck them for another flight. I was assured theyd make it all the way to my destination and I wouldn't need to re-check it. He was wrong and now I'm trying to find my lost bag."
Pros: "seat space was good"
Cons: "the flight was full so drink service was not well organized, lack of water"
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: "Like a third world flight, I could not purchase a wifi. Service is excellent."
Pros: "I liked the interaction of the cabin crew with the passengers. They were helpful and responsive."
Cons: "I was disappointed with the limited entertainment options on board. Also, the boarding was a bit hectic because of the congestion at the airport but I reckon that is not the fault of the airlines."
Cons: "At Addis airport, they announced first that the trip got cancelled and postponed for another 7 hours. Then while lining up to change my ticket, I overheard people saying that the boarding is starting in 30 minutes and we have to rush to the gate. Then the gate number changed 3 times and the boarding time got delayed few times as well. It was a 5 stars chaos that trip!"
Pros: "Fabulous. On time departure, 15 min early arrival into Addis. Service was outstanding"
Cons: "About time they introduced WiFi on flights"
Cons: "The flight schedule was changed and despite contacting Ethiopian multiple times, they did not comprehend the problem. I was scheduled from Dar to Blantyre to Lilongwe then to Blantyre AGAIN, my obvious final destination. Luckily the crew at Malawian Airlines allowed me off the plane early and edited my booking for the return journey efficiently and easily."
Pros: "Was a bit concerned because I only had a 45 min layover in Addis to change plans, howeve Ethiopian Air made sure we were met coming of the plane and facilitated a fast transit. Checked luggage also all made it through. I was pleasantly surprised. I flew Nairobi to Cape Town with connection in Addis."
Pros: "Flight crew were very nice and helpful. Plenty of room for carry on baggage."
Cons: "Veg food selections were very limited. A breakfast without meat choice would have been better than yet another rice dish. Some of the more recent movies started in the middle or near through end. Tried to rewind and restart but neither worked The toilet paper was not refilled at the stopover in Dublin and we ran out before LA!"
Cons: "The food is terrible."
Pros: "Flight attendants excellent. Flights both on time."
Cons: "Film selection could have been better"
Pros: "Dreamliner was awesome"
Cons: "Horrible food selection, needs improvement"
Cons: "need more room in seats. It's impossible to sit next to someone without being on top of each other"
Cons: "Ethiopian Air almost did not let me on the flight because I didn't have a return ticket through Ethiopian Air. Almost missed my flight, and was forced to purchase a return flight just so that I could make my flight. According to them, passport control would not let me into Cape Town without it, but customs never once asked for my return flight information."
Pros: "The crew were excellent especially lead hostess. I liked the comfort n entertainment very much."
Cons: "Vary the snacks to include fruits. Include warm drinks like water during meals."
Cons: "The food is not Good"
Cons: "I always prefer asian airlines"
Pros: "The crew was adequate."
Cons: "The airplane was old and dirty."
Pros: "Air China did an excelent job to get me to my destination."
Cons: "Kayak.com did not notify me my flight was cancelled. By my own dumb luck I showed up early enough for Air China to put me on a plane that was boarding. Come on kayak. You failed to provide details that could have ruined my trip. Get it together."
Pros: "Crew was good. Boarding good too."
Cons: "On time performance."
Cons: "Flight was 4 hours delayed with no explanation or access to WiFi given."
Pros: "Friendly service."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants that attended to each need when asked"
Cons: "Noisy children at all hours during entire plane ride, entrees weren’t very filling not tasty."
Pros: "Air China does have excellent economy class prices on trans-Pacific flights. The planes themselves are not bad, and the flight attendants have been good. Overall it could be worse."
Cons: "Both their website and their check-in staff (at Beijing airport especially) can be terrible and frustrating. it is even difficult to manage flights that you book directly on their own website. The check-in staff are grumpy at best. Catering is as bad as it gets. The airline food is a throwback to the 1970s. Drink selection is poor--no fizzy water/soda water/seltzer. Only regular water, coke and sprite, and no spirits at all. Very bad wine and beer with only one choice for each: Great Wall wine, which is sweet and gross, and warm slimy swill beer. The airline could do better by upgrading the website system and having better staff training for customer service."
Pros: "New York to Beijing plane was new."
Cons: "Not have salt pepper tooth pick.Halfway of plane juice finish. In this long flight no have snacks"
Pros: "The crew was nice. I liked getting a bottle of water to drink."
Cons: "Everything was fine."
Cons: "No notification that my itinerary required a visa - despite a 144hr transfer allowance for both Shanghai and Beijing it does not apply if you fly in at one and out the other! You only 24 hrs in that case. And I found this out at the gate in Osaka."
Pros: "The flight crew was nice."
Cons: "My seat was broken. I had to sit lop-sided for the entire flight. The plane looked like it was built in the ‘90s. There was one screen on the wall constantly playing. It’s not like I had an option to look away as it was in front of me when I would try to relax. The check in desk was ridiculous as the line wrapped all the way through BKK airport. They needed to organize the queue better."
Pros: "Service, food, entertainment, flight experience"
Cons: "It turns out that we had to ask for a seat that is near a baby bassinet beforehand. Like it’s not obvious from the tickets that we’ve purchased that we are boarding with a baby. The truth is that Air Asia prefers to sell those seats instead of making sure that you would be comfortable with a baby boarding."
Pros: "They were friendly, competent, we were comfortable"
Cons: "The lines and time spent getting into the gate area. Because the flight was to go on to Beijing from Vienna, all of us going from Barcelona to Vienna waited in line with the others."
Cons: "The plane was so cold that by the end people were wearing their parkas. I started the flight healthy and ended it with a hacking cough that turned into a full blown cold. The not very good food was also not warm."
Pros: "Blankets and a pillow were provided"
Cons: "No entertainment."
Cons: "We were promised that our luggage will be delivered the next day but it took us 7 days to get our luggage and we have to go to lost and found, we wee without our personal belongings for a week"
Cons: "Not a single snack in the plane!"
Pros: "I am incredibly happy with my Air China experience. Crew worked diligently to create a good experience, and was kind when I was having difficulty communicating. The food was surprisingly fabulous! Authentic Chinese cuisine and tasty. Several passengers did not review the regulations and were pretty rude when Air China crew told them to turn off and put away cell phones. Crew handled this well."
Cons: "Bathrooms were not very clean. I didn't realize until halfway through the flight that we needed to get our own beverages and throw away our own trash (different than the other airlines)- would have appreciated this being announced. I was confused during boarding process about when to stand and when to board, but watched the people around me and figured it out. We took off late/ landed late, but I was able to make my connection in Beijing without any stress so was happy."
Pros: "Compare to the price of ticket, I thought the service was good and the seats were not so tight."
Cons: "I did not like the food that were served."
Pros: "Everything but entertaiment on board. Very vas audio."
Pros: "Better customer service"
Cons: "Air China staff need to better understand and learn how to talk to people."
Pros: "Comfort of the plane"
Cons: "I was already on the airport and about to check in early, so they didn't let me check in because I forgot to put my middle name on reservation. I tried to call kayak and nobody is answering, I also called priceline and they couldn't do anything. They said I have to cancel everything then rebook a new one. So I ended up paying $1300!!! for a new flight and in addition to that I have a penalty of $200!!! For my original flight cost of only $600. And my companion who has the same flight as me didn't take her flight because the agent in Air china said that we could rebook her flight without charge and for the same price. So we ended up paying $1300 for her as well plus again the $200 penalty. So we lost $3000 for just the 2 of us!! I will never fly air china again! Worst day ever!"
Pros: "The food service and inflight entertainment"
Cons: "In service entertainment did not start until in the air."
Cons: "Same as above. Need wifi. I'll look for a plane with wifi next time"
Pros: "Airline staff"
Cons: "Delayed flights (2 legs, 4 hours) and mishandled luggage"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours without any notification on signage in the airport. When there is a delay, posting an estimated time of departure is a basic courtesy. Because they did not do this, and multiple flights were delayed for the same gate, the gate was extremely crowded. When an earlier delayed flight was boarding, there was no announcement and no indication on the signs! As a result, some people were uninformed of their flight departure! There was also a tremendous amount of jostling and pushing to allow people to board. This is clearly a problem for the ground crew and airport to make more efficient and flyer-friendly."
Pros: "I hate that u connect me with poi t to point airline that i ly allows for a one check in bag"
Cons: "I ended removing ine of my two check in bag as Myabmar Bational Airline from Yangon to Bangkok only allow one check in bag. Poor connection on your end"
Cons: "My first two flights were delayed (1st flight from Changsha to Beijing was delayed for 4 hours and 2nd flight from Beijing to Houston was delayed for 45 mins), so I missed my last flight from Houston to Orlando to go home! And! They lost both of my luggages! Now I'm forced to stay in Houston airport overnight to catch next flight to go home tomorrow morning. Air China did NOT help anything! They wouldn't even help me rebook my flight when they know I will miss my last connect flight."
Pros: "Direct flight, no layover , price ... you get what you pay for shitty service"
Cons: "staff was rude, food sucked, seats uncomfortable. luggage was lost, no contact, it has t been 3 days, customer no service does not pick up phone. i've tried reaching them at every number listed anywhere on web, phone not answered or straight to voice mail ...... very frustrating"
Cons: "wouldnt let our entire group on the flight after we all had seats because of a delay in our connecting flight."
Cons: "Airline didn't make an effort to hold the connecting flight. Also tried to book passengers two to a room for the 24 hour delay. Delay did not come through on vayama/kayak systems so when I called vayama they couldn't help because they thought the flight had departed on time."
Cons: "Flight did not exist, missed connecting flight"
Pros: "70% of the entertainment is in Chinese so be prepared with your own stuff. Food was not awful, but not great. Comfort and leg room above average."
Cons: "I had a medical emergency that developed in the first part of feb. this resulted in the amputation of my right leg. we contacted air china they requested medical records which we supplied. They are refusing to supply a credit or refund kayak. Kayak is going to be included in the FAA complaint and lawsuit following on this"
Pros: "The professionalism of the crew was fantastic! The flight attendants did their best to ensure everyone was well hydrated and fed."
Cons: "The seats were extremely cramped for a 6hr flight and the touchscreen used for entertainment wasn't functioning. Air china typically serves some pretty decent food but this time it felt like I was eating some sort of slime posing as beef. I also noticed some Air china flights heat the rolls and others leave them cold. The salad was also frozen solid."
Pros: "Great value and seems like a very safe carrier."
Cons: "Planes don't ever seem to take off when designated. Missed a connection that stole 2 days of our short trip."
Pros: "Was worried about losing my luggage originally but everything turned out fine."
Pros: "The personal is very kind and polite"
Cons: "Very long time to waiting in the plane, the audio of the movies could be better"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and served us on three different occasions : Drinks , Dinner and another meal before landing ."
Cons: "For the most part it was a great experience , not much I can really complain about ."
Cons: "Every time the entertainment was paused for an announcement, it turned the volume WAY up, so loud that it hurt my ears and every time i had to tear the earphones off. I understand not wanting to let people mute the announcements, but minimum volume should be around 30-40%, not 70%"
Pros: "Hard to remember anything I liked"
Cons: "Delayed 7 total hours. Zero communication. People missed connecting flights with no help from service desk. Stuck on runway with no communication from the pilot. Stuck deboarding with. I communication why doors could not be opened or how long it would take."
Cons: "Flight delayed for 2 hrs , saw the pilot coming after 2 hrs , why were the customers not informed"
Pros: "As the standard for the Asian airlines, the service was impeccable, the flight attendants were on call, and did their very best to make sure everyone was satisfied What really impressed me, before the flight and during check-in, my friends of 4 were all placed as close together while still upgrading our seats. I'm pretty sure we just asked if upgrades were available and the guy at the counter gave them to all four of us complementary. Outstanding way to get return customers. ."
Cons: "The food was par, it wasn't bad by any means, it just looks too much out of a box, however, I will not complain as the flight price, quality and service were beyond expected."
Pros: "I can't really think of anything really. I guess just having my own tv screen with movies that are false advertise in the booklet."
Cons: "Boarding was all over the place, so as the crew. The food distribution was chaotic. Food was a basic typical airplane food. Nothing really special. Entertainment has different shows/movies than the ones in the book."
Pros: "When you are on a very long flight it would be nice to have a crew that is pleasant and nice . I will never fly this airline again. One of the many instance of rudesness from the crew was after a long while where I was sitting the person smelled so I saw an empty seat in the back and say there since no one was using it. The crew member rudely made me go back to my seat and indure 13 long hours uncomfortable"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth and there was no flight delay in all legs of the journey. The price is the cheapest I have ever paid for for the same destination. And I was surprised to find online entertainment even though I could care less about the qualities of the available movies."
Cons: "The food. I am comparing it to Singapore Airlines, which I used to fly with to the same destination every year. I suppose they are not comparable given the huge price difference. The crew. Again, I am comparing it with SQ. They are quite brusqe, not as attentive, and not as pleasant."
