Pros: "Decent seats. Good amenities for a long flight - entertainment, pack with toothbrush/mask/earplugs/socks."
Pros: "Good service from the crew and good food."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and there are a lot of redundant checks before entering to the gate. No internet service and the flight was very long. (14 hrs)"
Pros: "The crew was exceptional! Seat was comfortable and extra seat not occupied next to me giving me extra elbow room also in addition to sufficient leg room."
Cons: "I would have a few suggestions but it would rise the price of ticket significantly. We got what we paid for."
Cons: "Food was just not that great. Too many peppers in everything!"
Cons: "Did not make this flight. How can I confirm that my ticket is still valid for the return trip?"
Pros: "The on flight entertainment is great. It’s very accommodating especially for long flights."
Cons: "Onboarding was ridiculous. They merged two gates together with no instructions to the large crowd of people boarding the plane. We were scheduled to start boarding at a certain time and we didn’t actually board until 45 minutes later. When we asked the attendants when we would begin boarding and did they have any instructions they were extremely rude, laughing with one another and taking selfies. When we we asked for the third time they brushed us off with a time frame. It was extremely disappointing."
Pros: "Stellar crew -- super friendly, served water/juices constantly, polite, attentive. To be commended Great choice of movies and entertainment but no wifi???"
Cons: "This was an older 777 -- no wifi -- pretty surprising on such a key flight at DOH-JFK! This is not the airline's fault but I had a crazy lady next to me who was very disoriented, who could not speak English and needed assistance. No one would deal with her! She had a little pouch with her name on it -- like a UM -- so someone knew something was not right when they put her on the flight. I bought drinks inside the terminal for this 14 hour flight but they were all confiscated at the additional security at the gate!! WTF"
Cons: "carry-on did not fit on center overhead compartment unless I put it side ways (Same carry-on suitcase fit nicely on Emirates airplanes, so the carry-on overhead compartments have been made smaller on Qatar on purpose or by engineering error, and I will not fly Qatar airlines again. Less food options. I went to the Gally and they only had kitkat bars for food. Emirates offer fruit, sandwiches, and many choices at ALL TIMES of the flight for economy class passengers. Entertainment computer (Android based system) ran slow and out of memory at times. Seats were not comfortable for 12hrs flight. My butt was starting to hurt. I did not have this issues on Emirates flights."
Cons: "The food options were good, but twice our family could not get the items we wanted as they ran out of them."
Cons: "I will never ever fly Qatar airlines again. The boarding for this flight in Doha was horrendous. I and a random group of passengers were made to wait with no explanation AFTER our electronics were already cleared to go through yet another security check. They said we were selected for screening but all the other people they took before us were screened the exact same way. It was stressful and traumatizing to stand for 45 minutes with no clear explanation. The crew were clearly new at their job or ill trained. On top of that they consistently ran out of food they were serving and was forced to take the vegetarian option when it's not what I wanted. I could not wait to leave Doha and exit Qatar airways. I hated my experience traveling with Qatar. It was stressful and traumatic. I want a full refund. I will also be advising all my friends to never fly Qatar. It was the WORST!"
Pros: "Good food and service."
Cons: "I am not tall but still had no legroom. Plane configured with too many rows."
Pros: "Smooth flight. Comfortable chairs for economy. Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "The eggplant/beef dish was the best food I have ever had on an airplane. Staff were pleasant and efficient. Wide range of movies, etc, available"
Pros: "The food was excellent fresh and plentiful. The bathrooms were very clean"
Pros: "I like your entertainment system, but the cushions on the headset were not the best."
Cons: "The boarding was not organized. I was in Group C. We were chained behind a rope. Boarding started and when the agent nearest to us didn't get a passenger quickly he started to take Group D! I did not appreciate that. This continued throughout boarding. Also, as to be expected!, as newer people joined the the lines they went to the line moving - not their Group line. So we stood behind the rope on C while everyone else was boarding. I finally jumped to the moving line. I was tired of waiting. The kosher meals were warm, but not hot. There is no reason for this. I have been flying International for over 20 years and I know what is possible. The seats - for a 10 hour flight - were uncomfortable. Either I need more padding on my rear end or you need better seats."
Cons: "I was first seated next to the two largest people on the plane, a couple. There was hardly room for me in the seat. I had the aisle seat. I asked the flight attendant if I could be reseated and she said the plane was full and there were no open seats. She eventually found me a middle seat in the back of the plane, which was so cramped I could harpy move. For a 10 hours flight, not good. I have gold status on Star Alliance, which got me an upgrade from Bishkek to Istanbul, but didn't help on this flight."
Cons: "Stop over in Istanbul, flight to US. Had to go again through security with not enough staff, stood around 40min in a messy line with no air-conditioning or water to go thorough security again. There were elderly people having to do the same. Later, after landing, there was no parking for the airplane, so after 10 hours flight we we're held for 25 minutes inside the airplane. New regulations will make me reconsider using Turkish airline for US bound flights, although it's a great company, unless they find a more comfortable and organized way to do the security check."
Cons: "Absolute chaotic experience. Seized all electronic equipment which I anticipated ahead of time and left my iPad home - but they took my camera - which is NOT on the list or a digital device. They had ONE person handling what had to be well over a thousand iPads and laptops. Flight left hours late. NO legroom, Food was horrible and inedible. The entertainment system draped out and locked up 4 hours into a ten hour flight. The WORST flight experience I have had in a very long tie and I have flown all over the world. Will NEVER fly Turkish Air again. STAY AWAY from this airline."
Pros: "Checking in personal Irem such a rude person who lies to clients. She lied me about checking bag and choosing sit also. I asked her to talk to her supervisor and she show me the girl sitting next to her was doing checking in also name is Bahar. I am 6'1" and 190 lbs and asked for exit row and they both told me all of them gone already. The thing is funny when I asked checking in was just began. After boarding I realized some exit sits are available. As a Turkish man who worked JFK for.Turkish airlines, I think this was awful experience. Turkish airlines and passengers deserve better service and honest employees"
Pros: "Crew demeanor Cleanliness of the cabin Boarding process"
Cons: "Istanbul Airport facilities Food choices Alcohol selection Changing tkt and customer service"
Had a bitter experience with RJ, and had the challenge to login to account no information about what went wrong and not being able to select the food option after check-in flight they don't have any vegetarian food option on the flight, and they told us to have to select the food option before boarding :( i had the challenge of login into my account, with explaining all the details to crew members they told they don't have any vegetarian food to serve for my entire family throughout the journey and my baggage does not arrive to the destination on time. Overall its very bad experience for my entire family
Cons: "Avoid flight delays in the future and respect the flight schedule"
Pros: "Flight attendant Hazeem was great."
Cons: "The state of the plane, communication with patrons, literally everything else could have been better. Willingness to work with patrons after their airline caused patrons to miss other flights. It was absolutely a nightmare and i will be contacting your office."
Pros: "The seats, staff and food were great!"
Cons: "I was traveling with a resin in a wheelchair and it was a little chaotic"
Cons: "They won’t reimburse us for our flight that they canceled.. HORRIBLE and will never fly with them again."
Pros: "The flight the plane the staff on plane the food the entertainment"
Cons: "Inspectors checking your personal hand bag with gloves on their hand getting into every pocket."
Cons: "I left some baggage on the plane and it has been impossible to reach Royal Jordanian in regards to getting it back. Every phone number leads to a different phone number."
Pros: "The plane was clean and food was provided in a timely manner. The bathrooms were well located and I did not have to wait to go. Movie selection was not as expansive as I had expected but was still enough to pass the time."
Cons: "The plane seemed to have a signal jammer so I could not send any messages before we pulled out of the gate. Our departing flight was delayed two hours, just sitting on the runway without the screens turned on to let us watch anything. The return flight was unpleasant because we were not able to sit together."
Cons: "Informed by email at 9.30 the previous evening that flight was delayed for 3 hours. Delayed at airport for a further hour. There was no explanation or apology. This must have caused major problems for passengers with f;light connections and for the many who had to get up and go to work the next day."
Pros: "I kept calling the airline and no one answered to change the dates because of a passport emergency and ended up missing the flight"
Cons: "No one answers in case of emergenciess"
Pros: "Planes were good with good leg room"
Cons: "For Asian Veg Meal, they served Paneer for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The spacing between meals was quite large. Entertainment options for adults and kids were quite limited."
Cons: "Gate 61 for boarding is too far away and requires a lot of walking....very strange design of the airport"
Pros: "The movie selection was decent"
Cons: "They failed to informed me that passangers have to report to the gate one full hour before direct flights to the US from Abu-Dhabi in order to clear US customs and border security which happens there prior to your flight (which is the only place in the world that this happens.) I arrived at the Airport 2.5 hours before my flight and reported to my gate 45 minutes before my flight and was not allowed through. They then were extremely rude to me when I was in the process of finding a new connection and made me buy a brand new ticket for the following morning as the penalties for rescheduling would cost more than buying a new ticket which was 1200 USD!! They insisted that this warning was on their web site and would have been on my ticket had I got it from their website. Since I purchased my ticket from Kayak.com, that was my own problem. They then showed me a warning label on the baggage claim slip that they gave me at check in but this was only in Arabic with NO ENGLISH translation provided. More importantly the representative who checked me in to my flight never told me about needing to be at the gate 1 hr before the flight. Throughout this whole process they were unapologetic, unsympathetic and rude. I met two other people that same day who had the same problem one of these passangers arrived at the gate 1.5 hrs before her flight and still could not get to her flight in time because of the inefficient customs and immigration process that the Emarati's have in place in an attempt to mimic our process in the US. This is a very bad policy which only Etihad does. If you fly through Dubai with Emirates they do not require this nonsense. The Etihad staff were rude, unhelpful, unapologetic and inefficient. Never fly from Abu-Dhabi to the US with Etihad. On the flight, as the plane came to a stop at the end of the runway but still needed to taxi in to the gate, people started getting up. Instead of calmly explaining to people what was going on, one of the stewardesses waved it off and said well when we start moving again or if something happened they will just DIE then! This was not the only occasion I was disgusted by the staff. I woke up on the flight and couldn't find my glasses and the response of one of the stewardesses was "can you ask someone else to help you, I am on my way to take a nap and if I stop to help you I want get my full rest." This airline is one of the worst in the world if not the worst. I will never fly with them again and I am considering sending these stories to a NEWS network to raise awareness on this issue. Their staff don't care. They seem to be overworked and burned out. They only get one day off when flying to New York and back when by law they are required two. This shows that they are abusive to their staff which then leads their staff to have have horrible customer service."
Pros: "I wish I could remember the fight attendant’s name - she was probably the best flight attendant I’ve ever had"
Cons: "Plane was very crowded as compared to the A380 I flew over on. also the meal services on the Trip over was much better than this return flight"
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "I travelled from KUL to JFK with transit at Abu Dhsbi. Nightmarish transit in Abu Dhabi. Three intrusive security screenings (why three?). At some point they take away your boarding pass and make you sit in a hall for about half an hour (with similar 'criminals') with no access to bathrooms without telling you why. Then they call your name to return the boarding pass ( which was a problem for me because I am hearing challenged). Not sure this special treatment is reserved for just brown skinned travellers"
Pros: "As I said, the crew and facility were pretty good. But the bad things really ruined the trip and pissed me off."
Cons: "First of all, I tried to purchase the on-plane WiFi. That didn't happen, as I was told there was an error in purchasing and I didn't end up getting any connection. Yet when I got off the plane, I realized that I was nevertheless charged for $12. This was definitely annoying, and they still haven't gotten back to me. Secondly, which is very frustrating and infuriating, was the fact that not only was my checked luggage delayed, they did not call me or reply to my emails with any useful information on my luggage's situation. To this date, I have no idea where it is, if it's lost or damaged, or when can they deliver it to me. I had all my clothes, my DSLR camera and gifts in my luggage, and I had to buy a bunch of stuff in the next few days because I didn't have those things. It has been more than a week, and they still haven't gotten back to me on anything. For this reason alone, I think they totally deserve a poor overall rating, especially because I chose them in the first place because I trusted their good ratings."
Pros: "The movie options and food were good."
Cons: "This flight had the potential to be good as the entertainment and food options were good, but I felt cramped and the volume of the surrounding passengers was awful. There were three crying babies, which I know neither the airline nor the families themselves can control, as well as one child with special needs who was making a lot of noise the whole flight. I wasn't able to sleep at all for that reason. Additionally, I was disappointed that the flight was late and that the deplaning process was so long – we taxied for a long time and there was only one staircase, so we were very late."
Pros: "Something unusual happened on this leg. A passenger became quite ill, and the captain decided to fly back to Abu Dhabi 2.5 hours after our takeoff from there. That certainly says something about Etihad's customer service. I doubt United would have done the same. A crew member told me that the double back meant an extra fuel cost of $50,000. The moral is: make sure you've got your medications in order—or whatever your health requires—before you board an airplane."
Cons: "There is no politeness of cabin crew and there not having ample stuff as snacks and liquor. They are not desire to serve you as long flight India to PHIONIX"
Pros: "Service provided Plane was very clean and neat Very few people on the plane Arrival on time"
Cons: "The boarding process was so poor and clumsy that made the take off an hour plus delay. The plain was almost 10 miles away from the departing gate. Ground staff were unfriendly, rude, ignorant."
Pros: "I had my own row of seating because the flight was pretty empty so it was very comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing. Excellent flight"
Pros: "Every member of the crew I encountered was five-star, and went above and beyond."
Cons: "The shuttle between the terminal and the aircraft could be more frequent instead of cramming passengers in and waiting for more to board."
Pros: "Helpful crew, comfortable seat with good leg space, tasty food, affordable price."
Cons: "Same RUH-JFK like service in DAC-RUH, RUH-DAC, JED-DAC. Since most of the passengers in these routes are low income labors in middle east, sometimes crews don't treat everybody well."
Pros: "Positive and helpful crew. A few new movies recently released kept me entertained."
Cons: "The food was not catered to my taste buds it was strictly Arabic cuisine. The software that shows the realtime flight map looked very outdated and complicated to use. No blinds or earbuds given for sleep. Not enough food given for long flight"
Pros: "Nothing. Everyone was tough. Not smiling. Not helpful. Too many scans and check points"
Pros: "The in-flight service was great. The flight crew was polite and courteous. Overall, the flight duration from Jeddah to NYC was bearable."
Cons: "I booked a returned flight from JFK to JED and back for my younger sister, she arrived on the same flight I booked but when returning flight from JED to JFK her ticket was suspended. The person on the counter said it was suspended due to she never boarded on the plane from JFK to JED. Never again booking on the website."
Pros: "Just the entertainment selections"
Cons: "They changed my flight numerous times and the food was cold"
Pros: "The food was good that's all and the bathroom was clean for business class."
Cons: "Everything else was extremely bad !!!!!"
