Few people on the plane - Was great! The plane was late to board and over an hour late to arrive. They said it was airport control. How can these things not be booked it advance? Very frustrating!
The flight was a transit and I had my boarding pass from the departure. I have talked to the check in person to set me up close to my family seats and ended up with my wife in one seat, 3 years old son in different seat and myself on different seat. very disappointing and overwhelming.
New aircraft, new and modern. Crew could be a little more smiling.
Cons: "It was too hot in the cabin. The flight attendants were mostly inattentive. At one point three of them were feeding a baby to the exclusion of all of their duties to the rest of the passengers."
Cons: "Was a good experience"
Pros: "New & clean aircraft"
Cons: "Not lied to me about my extra being payed from Bahrain to Kenya because it was only payed to Dubai which is now causing me a lot of stress my flight from Dubai to Nairobi was cancelled while i was there without my knowledge"
Cons: "Economy sets are too tight and cramped. Cup holder was good for nothing, i tried to put my soft drink bottle in it and it slipped right out the bottom and when I tried to put a cup of water in it supplied by the crew it wouldn't fit! When I reclined my seat to sleep the passenger behind me pushed my seat hard back to upright position. When I turned around to ask why the rude response I realized that he was a tall fellow and his knees were already touching the back of my seat so when I reclined it, it hurt him and he had no where to move his legs. I couldn't do or say much as I understood his misery and therefore kept my seat up the whole way for 5 hours! The flight was full and neither of us could relocate to another seat."

Pros: "Food was pretty good"
Cons: "The aircraft left an hr late with passengers waiting on board ..no alcohol on the flight which to be fair I knew was their policy..Then they couldnt get the doors open at the destination Airport leaving us onboard for 45 minuutes at the gate..I also found the cabin unbearably hot with no individual air con controls..the crew were also nowhere to be seen most of the flight so had to get up frequently for water and inconveniencing the passenger next to me"
Cons: "Have to wait along time to get the tickets of the connection"
Cons: "Bahrain airport"
Pros: "Meal options and snacks, good crew staff. And relatively comfortable seating. The plane waited for us because of the earlier delayed flight, though we prefer to have been given the option to stay the night and catch the next morning flight."
Cons: "The flight got delayed from Alexandria and the staff at Manama airport directed us to a counter to get our onward boarding passes but another senior member of staff asked us "what are you doing here" and asked us to go straight to the gate, then when we arrived at Abu Dhabi the baggage did not arrive with us and we had to go back to the airport later to pick them up."
Cons: "Was not a fan of the breakfast offered."
Pros: "Excellent new Dreamliner. Seat very comfortable"
Cons: "Extremely poor movie/TV choices Crew didn't smile much!"
Cons: "Delay of 4 hours as connection was gone , costumer care not answering, transfer desk very un professional, very bad management of delay . Zero infos"
Pros: "The price was excellent, the (A330) plane was in good clean condition, they provided with blankets, pillows and headphones. The food was better than most airlines I have travelled on and the entertainment was okay but not as good I would have wanted. Overall, I would say 4 stars all round."
Cons: "Entertainment could have had more on offer, the plane was generally cold, an on-board wifi on their major (A330) planes would have been helpful and upgrades to their short haul planes would be good too."
Pros: "fast boarding, got the luggage quickly."
Cons: "Food was ok but may be improved still specially AVML."
Pros: "The crew was efficient and anxious to please. The flight was on time."
Cons: "Boarding by bus is always unpleasant."

Pros: "I was rerouted entirely to fly with Austrian Air, and only landed 2 hours later than scheduled, which was nice."
Cons: "My Gulf Air flight from Bangkok to Paris was delayed 7 hours which would make me miss my connection to Paris in Bahrain...and they wanted to put me on a new flight that would have me layover in Bahrain for more than 18 hours, and landing in Paris 24 hours later than planned. I politely said no and asked them to find me something else, and they did--so that was good. But the suggested alternative for a 7 hour delay was absolutely ridiculous. Also, the 7 hour delay was never explained and no other flights were delayed, so I guess it was something wrong with the plane?"
Pros: "In general, good and clean."
Cons: "The Food Choices"
Cons: "The Food choices"
Pros: "More movies And good food Pls have working charges of iPhone on Bahrain airport"
Pros: "Gap between both flights was tight.But very helpful ground crew & flight crew"

Cons: "Missed my connection from Doha to this flight neither Qatar air or gulf would help me reschedule ticket had to pay third airline to get home"
Pros: "Everything went well."
Pros: "The in flight entertainment console was standard with decent movies. The hotel and food voucher for flight delay was nice but was only received AFTER fighting with customer service for over 3 hours on the phone using international calling. Terrible terrible."
Cons: "Firsr leg of flight was delayed (mnl to bah) then luggage was lost when we arrived in Paris. Food on the plane was mediocre. Service was poor. I kept having to request water because only a small glass of water was made available at meal service, and typically most airlines on international.flights offer water consistently throughout the flight. Flight attendants all but disappeared in between services. Coffee was also terrible borderline undrinkable. When luggage was lost no offer was provided for a solution - voucher, per diem, etc. We were coming from a warm climate and had to exist for two days layering warm weather clothes. Luckily we had our coats in our carryon. But both travelers became sick during our trip."
Pros: "Being able to watch new releases. The food was good."
Cons: "Times we ate took too long. We were on a 10+ hour flights and it would've been better if we ate more. No leg room in your Isle, you must become a stick and not move, become one with the plane. In Bahrain they force us to cancel our flight and charged us extra 600+ USD to move the flight to the next day. Even though I paid for insurance, then I had to pay an extra 20BD for my wife to leave the island, and it took 2 hours to tell us we owe 20BD... Bahrain is a place I would not like to return."
Pros: "The food and services in Bahrain airport and in plane"
Cons: "Flight was overbooked and I was forced to delay 24hrs for the next available seat."
Cons: "No selection for beverage. No tomato juice!"
Pros: "We landed safely and everyone got off the plane."
Cons: "Gulf air has decided to do "silent boarding" - so we were late boarding our flight because even though we watched the gate- it never filled up, there were never lines, no announcements, no lights signaling anything. Our captain took VERY sharp and hard dips and turns during our flight. He even dropped altitude so quickly that some women on board yelled out in terror. No announcements were made as well by the crew or captain regarding these very uncommon experiences of turbulence or announcements to remain with ones seat belt fastened. Finally, the man driving the bus from the plane to the door at Manama airport was too busy talking to the men who decided to sit in the front seat of the passenger bus and not look on the road in a busy air traffic area. I'm literally blown away at how everyone was safe and made it from point a to point b. I'm also horrified at the lack of communication or safety precautions."
Cons: "We were in row 42 and there were at least 15 rows behind us, and they ran out of chicken option in food."
Cons: "Bag lost in Bahrain"
Cons: "American Airlines was late, so Gulf Air just washed their hand off us. We were left to fend for our selves. Gulf Air is the world's single most worst airline. It was only due to the wonderful service of American Airlines and then British Airways that we could reach Delhi."
Pros: "nothing is good"
Cons: "the food and bathrooms"
Cons: "It was really nice and comfortable trip"

Pros: "Crews was excellent"
Pros: "The seat was good"
Cons: "The plane was old, we boarded late, a guy lit up a cigarette enroute - and I think it may have been a flight attendant - seats are tiny and don’t incline more than 15%, awful food."

Pros: "Nice experience except for the delay in Dubai."
Cons: "Any delay would have been nice. we really had to run a lot in El Cairo Airport in order to catch the conection flight to Madrid."

Pros: "Clean and roomy"
Cons: "Poor food and entertainment system is unusable."
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: "I chipped my tooth eating your food and no one could help me except to say sorry"
Pros: "we should get our laguage from borg al arab and recheck it back to cairo we waited for one and half hour and we were about to loose the next flight to cairo and again rechecked and the carryon they asked us to send it by plane for safety i mean it was very messy and stressful"
Cons: "why for transit we should pick up our bags and recollect it again why not like all other airways to automatic transfereand we get our lagugae at final distrnstion"
Pros: "Flight wasn't packed. Reasonable room for carryons. Seat next to me was open, though most seats were full."
Cons: "There was a late gate change in Cairo, which was not communicated to the new gate personnel. They were not ready to receive, there was no female screener which required a delay for the ladies to enter the gate area, and the plane was late leaving. Not a crisis, but was entirely avoidable. Also, I suggest avoiding long layovers in the Cairo airport. There are few chairs outside the eating areas."
Pros: "Upgraded to business class at the ticket counter for a very reasonable price- comfort and ease."
Pros: "Check in online was easy. Check in in airport was nice and easy. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Delay of the flight around 30 minutes. Entairtainment was poor."

Pros: "Crew was Excellent Food was great Seat was very comfort I will keep flying Egypt Air and i recmmend it strongly. Weight allowance so generous especially for frequent flyer Gold memebr and above."
Cons: "Entertainment needs more enhancement"
Pros: "Food was good, crew were pretty nice. Comfortable seating."
Cons: "It took me over 2 hours to board because the counter has never seen a green card extension. I also had a dog that was connecting with me on Emirates, they couldn't figure out the price for the dog at all. We started with $600 and went down to $188 which I was told on the phone. People working at check in should be way more knowledgeable of other things than just regular paper work and not giving travelers attitude because"
Pros: "Very comfortable 2-2 configuration of aircraft. Short flight with no hasstle once you board. Only convenient nonstop option between Cairo and Tel Aviv. Plane half empty. Ontime arrival."
Cons: "Not possible to print boarding pass, even at Luxor airport counter from where we originated, which means we could not use transfer service at Cairo and has to que again for all security and checkin lines. I checked in online but airline changed our seating without telling us. Egypt Air created this airline only for flights to Tel Aviv, so difficult to find checkin counters. One feels they don’t encourage people to take the flight."
Pros: "Delayed 1:30 hour"
Pros: "The boarding time was exact , the flight was relaxing, staff was professional It was really a five stars."
Pros: "On time departure and no problems."
Pros: "They make us feel the tickets are discounted, and when you arrive to the airports for international flights which is normally allowed 2 luggage, they informed us we are allowed only one bag and charge for the second bage $125.00 also they told me that my carrying on is too big and charge me another $125.00 . I have had traveled with the same carry on many time but that's the new way of EGYPTAIR scams. Will not travel with them anymore..... They're the worst service, you will only see the cabin crew during the meal time , with almost 12 hrs flight you will see the crew only twice !!!!! The worst experience we ever have"
Pros: "This was a return flight from Cairo to Washington. I called the Cairo office multiple times to add a pet to my ticket. I couldn't check in online and when I called to ask they said that's because I'm making changes (pet) that's why I can't do it and I should do it at airport.. I'm Cairo airport the check point is as soon as you get thru the main door.. Waited in line for check in only to find that all 4 tickets (me and 3 kids) were cancelled and that we had to go outside again to the reservation office (had to go thru check point again) to reissue the tickets. They didn't even appologize for their mistake and they blamed the travel agency.. Very unprofessional and irresponsible people."
Pros: "The Crew was excellent and accommodating."
Cons: "Long flight ... could not sleep... Not your fault :) I'm very tall so the comfort for me was not as good as it could have been due to limited leg room. Please try to keep us in mind and /or try to get tall folks leg room seats. Thanks.. Happy security was good, but it was a bit slow."
Pros: "Pilots are excellent at smooth landing."
Cons: "To most Arabs, broadcasting a prayer before taking off is routine and goes without notice. To foreigners, it could initiate fear about the safety of the plane as it projects a need to rely on a super power to make it. It's cultural and could be misunderstood."
Pros: "I had a window seat"
Cons: "From when I got on the plane to Toronto everybody was arguing with each other, not telling that the whole flight to Toronto a baby was crying the whole way I could get no sleep no flight attendants came to check on the family to see if they could quiet the baby so basically it was very very uncomfortable and Restless. Got no type of sleep! Also passagers act like they did not know where there assigned seat was at so that took a good amount of time for us to figure out everything before we took off. Don't think I'll ever fly with that airline again."
Cons: "I checked one bag as everybody did. When I get home, my bag got wet and stank. But I couldnt find any Egypt Air worker. Some clothes stanks also. That was terrible experience."
Pros: "Good crew that did a fine job in accommodating economy customers during a two hour delay."

Cons: "Nothing to complain"

Pros: "The food was nice. Vegetarian and non veg options were good for all the passengers."
Cons: "Boarding process was one of the most unorganised and pitiful for passengers I have ever seen!! Baggage check in process was a mess and the crew could not handle it. There were multiple lines at baggage check in for some reason for economy itself. We were guided by crew to one of the lines. Then after half hour, they put our line behind another line that arrived after us! Mismanagement led is to wait for nearly 2 hours at baghage check in. Also, the person at kiosk failed to check me in for connecting flight from Abu Dhabi(I was marked for airport checkin, so web check in was not an option). So when I reached Abu Dhabi, I was told my name was not even on the list!! Moreover I had only half hour layover at Abu Dhabi due to delayed flight from Mumbai . One of the worst experiences ever as it was also our honeymoon!"
Pros: "Cleaniness , food , entertainment"
Cons: "Air hostesses, my daughter asked 3 times for something . They kept saying will give and eventually no manners to come and reply also .. Asked for an extra bun for my 3 year old I was said will come back after the round but again no one came .. Never experienced this with any other flight .. Boarding also with kids was a little difficult when going by bus to the aircraft .. No priorities .. Only pushing .."
Pros: "Didnt make it. Neither did they give me an alternative to the flight."
Pros: "The A380 aircraft is an absolute delight to travel in. Makes the flight very comfortable."
Cons: "The crew was quite unfriendly and refused to provide any additional snacks or drinks after 1st service. Very limited food menu and very little in quantity."
Pros: "Good entertainment options although the screen/controller seem outdated and unresponsive. I would suggest not shutting off the entertainment while on the ground or too early (shut off an hour before landing)"
Cons: "My biggest complaint would be that we waited on the plane for over an hour and a half in Mumbai for late passengers. This caused a ripple effect which made us miss our arrival spot and have to wait an additional 30 min on the plane once we landed. You should never make 400+ people sit on an airplane for 2 additional hours (for a 3 hour flight) because a few passengers did not plan well and were late. That logic was insane to me and incredibly frustrating. That is my only complaint that would actually make me think twice about flying Etihad again. The crew seemed annoyed anytime I'd ask for water. A more western food option would be nice rather than just 3 options of rice and curries. Also the food timing did not line up well (eating fish at 9am)."
Cons: "Touch genital no good food rude air hostess and staff"
Pros: "The service was spectacular to begin with. It was consistent, frequent and ultimately satisfying. It was a very comfortable ride with enough space for a broad guy like me.

Pros: "Courtesy of crew, food and cleanliness"
Cons: "Good in all respect"
Pros: "Aircraft fleet and airport is good. Good infrastructure."
Cons: "The cabin crew is not at all courteous. When you start travelling in US, you realize how different the crew's attitude is. When you want to say no to the customer, atleast make an effort to accommodate the needs of the customer first. Minor requests made by the passengers should be accommodated. You just rudely say No. Learn something from American customer service!!"

Pros: "I liked the professionalisim and food and hospitality, OUTSTANDING AND SURPRISING!!!"
Cons: "Saudi Airlines is developing rapidly and quickly, OUTSTANDING!!!"
Cons: "I’m not sure this airline has planes. The kiosk agent refused to issue a boarding pass. He insisted I needed a visa for a transit flight.

Cons: "Our baggage left in Jeddah , flight delayed 3 hours because of uncertain reason for us"

I purchased 300MB for $25. I barely used less than 60MB in several hours of work because of terrible connection. Yet, when I complained to Saudia customer service, they insisted that there was no technical issue, refused to give me a refund, and did not even apologize. The transit in Jeddah's airport was terrible. The bathrooms are very dirty and smelly. In the return flight, we had an overnight stay in the airport. People typically need to sleep at this time. However, the airport was very crowded and, for so many people, there was not even enough seats to sit down."

Cons: "I didn't expect everything to need paying for, even water, considering we spent 6 and half hours in the air with FlyDubai, I had the wrong currency and a non credit card, so even though I was desperate for water I was not aloud one as I couldn't pay for it, the crew just said "sorry", so I went a few hours really uncomfortable"
Pros: "relatively clean"
Cons: "I was NOT impressed with this airline. I have never been on a transcontinental flight that did not provide on board entertainment or food. I thought the absence of both was ridiculous. Plus I went to try to read the news option- which was actually free and the papers were from 2014!!!! WTH?!There is no room to put everything- no pouch in the seat ahead of you so nowhere to put the food or drink that you have to bring on board or any of your travel things. I have no idea why. The FlyDubai terminal in Dubai is also quite lacking- I felt like I was trapped in crappy restaurant. I'm not certain that I will ever use use this airline again- not impressed."
Pros: "The pilot did his best to save me time but in vain. Plane was not as contested , more leg room. Good planes."
Cons: "No refreshments. No television."
Cons: "The flight from dubai to Kuwait was on Flydubai NOT Emirates.. in site was Emirates and that make problems to me cuz i hade to to go to terminal 2 for flydubai !!"
Cons: "cheap budget flight very surprised Emeritas would use v this for the second leg of the flight plane was old and tired and for a 5 hour flight no food or drinks supplied very poor quality would avoid in future"
Cons: "The price and the service"
Pros: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "- flight late one hour. - A/C of the plane was too warm. - food too poor and I don’t have a problem with the payment. - cabin crew not helpful at all."
Pros: "Seats are comfortable."
Cons: "My in-seat entertainment did not work."

Martha milagros Rivera"
Pros: "None every thing was bad."
Pros: "Easy boarding process, no issues with crew service."
Cons: "Nothing available without a charge, not even water."
Pros: "Not much actually, apart from being able to get home."
Cons: "Charter behaviour on a long distance flight? Well that is a new low in airlines. Well maybe except from Delta. I guess i can be happy that the crew did not drag people out and i managed to travel safely. That being said, having to pay for everything including water, snack (let alone food) or entertainment on a long distance flight is at least, excuse my French, a dick move. Not pleasant in any way."
Pros: "Controls were not responsive on the screen and often had to press a few times to get to a selection of a movie, etc especially on the flight fr USto Dubai"
Cons: "I had to rebook my flight from DXB to Jed because some international regional issues that were supposed to be cleared for the customs"
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "No food or beverages. So tight airplane"
Pros: "Flight left exactly on time."
Cons: "Why give out boarding zones if the Kathmandu flights are all a mad scramble anyway?"
Pros: "Keep it that way"
Cons: "I would like to see keep the way your now all the time thanks much"
Pros: "The staff was very helpful."
Cons: "It's a pay for what you get kind of airline, but that is to be expected. Overall good."
Cons: "Delayed for nearly 4 hours, no reason given, no staff visible to talk to, nothing offered to us."
Pros: "really can not think of one good thing that i liked, i really don't!"
Cons: "due to weather conditions, flight delayed and this information was not shared by Flydubai crew (wherever they are?). This is the 2nd time that delay happened and airline failed to manage the passenger at boarding gate or airport screens. people were shouting and looking for one person to communicate with, but there was no one to talk to. So - bad management - no hot drinks onboard the flight - lake of ethics - terminal at dubai airport was crowded and lake of services and seates to stay on!"
Pros: "The staff at Dubai were very helpful and efficient at arranging for overnight hotel accommodation and meals at the airlines expense. I suspect they have had a lot of practice with delayed flights!"
Cons: "1. Fly Dubai flight from Kathmandu was 5 hours late in departing, so I missed my connection in Dubai, had to stay overnight and was ultimately 18 hours late in reaching my final destination. 2. Paying for food and drink (even water!) on a 5+ hour international flight is ridiculous. I don't know any other airline that does this. US airlines on domestic flights at least provide soft drinks, water, tea and coffee and the odd snack free. 3. No entertainment. A big minus on such a long flight."
Pros: "The crews were great on both legs of the flight. Seating was not too bad. When boarding finally started, it was fast."
Cons: "Both of my flights were delayed, and in both situations no one would tell anyone what was going on. Leaving passengers in the dark about their travels is a terrible experience."
Cons: "Arrived 40 min before flight and was denied access. Lost my first plane."
Pros: "there was nothing special to like words "cheap airlines" got a really true meaning with Flydubai i will use then only if there will be no other possibility it is not about the crew it is about the "politics" of it"
Cons: "i am 6'8 tall so normal seats are not for me just wondering why having a free row ( no 15) of exit seats in the flight from Dubai to Zanzibar i needed to pay for it and on my way back row 15 was free of charge? one way charge one way not? something is far from easy to understand..and why having a combined flights (Emirates and Flydubai) i couldnt check in online? and will i get any response?"
Pros: "To be honest nothing in fly Dubai are good"
Cons: "I the foods are very expensive."
