Pros: "The crew were nice"
Cons: "Terrible food Outdated entertainment"
Cons: "Nothing i"
Cons: "The plane was old and tatty I booked a window seat to actually get the window seat with no window.

The plane was delayed on the runway for around 40 mins but no announcement made, the stewards were unresponsive when people pressed the buzzer."

Cons: "Hotel with all meals provided."
Pros: "The in flight crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The seat I have 41A is quite awkward, especially when 41B was a plus size person. The slanting profile of the wall also made it quite claustrophobic. But overall endurance."
Pros: "Most of the staff were supportive and caring and made me feel like nothing was too much to ask."
Cons: "I didn't realise my kid wouldn't get her own meal and I ran out of food if prepared by the last flight as we were travelling 38 hours in total. Snacks were available on request but it was just crisps so I gave her most of my meals."

Seating was awfully I am 6'3" did not fit in middle seat requested several times for isle seat my legs were sticking out each time I have to get up to let pass the passengers and staff safety hazard.

Pros: "Breakfast and lunch were both tasty"
Cons: "Had to wait an hour for our bags at BHX"
Pros: "Emirates leg was good. Easy checkin and I think slightly large than usual seats."
Cons: "I bought a return from Emirates with the returning flight from Australia to London as a code share with Qantas. Qantas does not honour the e-ticekts from Emirates and will NOT allow you to preselect seats online. You have to hope for a good seat at airport checkin. Too bad, as I would have been prepared to pay extra for a seat upgrade."
Pros: "Good everything"
Pros: "Crew were friendly Entertainment was good"
Cons: "My meal was forgotten and when I asked for it I received dried red cabbage and a dried up tomato and a grated carrot and something I didn't know what it was. The bread was not gluten free on this meal so I couldn't eat it. Unlike the first leg of my journey this meal didn't have my name or seat number on. I feel like it was put together once I asked where my meal was. Snacks offered but not gluten free so was very hungry from previous flight."
Cons: "Full aircraft so pick you seats early"
Pros: "Special ordered food was good, felt like we ate too many times but it was a 15h flight. Extra legroom seats in exit row are great, but other passengers stand in front of you to wait for toilets. Not sure if entirely worth the money for that reason only. Entertainment options were plentiful."
Cons: "Other passengers that treat the public space of an airplane like their own living room or bedroom. Disgusting and rude. I'm sorry the flight attendants have to put up with poor behavior. Amenity kit seems a bit skimpy for economy class. Toothbrush was falling apart and not enough toothpaste. Bring your own on board."
Pros: "Exceptional attention to details of client comfort."
Cons: "No faults."
Pros: "Assistance at Bangkok was excellent with no problems wheelchair all the way from flight to taxi. The assistance staff were employed by the airport and not Emerates which seemed to make a difference."
Cons: "On the whole everything was acceptable."
Cons: "Late take off"
Cons: "Very cold. Limited new/quality music to choose from..."
Cons: "No toilets in departure lounge! Delay of 30 minutes sitting with hardly any oxygen in cabin thought I was going to pass out. My last flight with Emirates."
Pros: "I felt unwell towards the end of the flight. The cabin crew could not have been nicer. Although they were busy they all found time to come and check on me, including the purser. Water and other drinks were given out regularly. They even provided afternoon tea with scones and cream!"
Pros: "Being able to sleep comfortably Great staff Food good rather than great but not easy on flight. Well chosen good wines. Chauffeur service to & from airport Ease of checkin"
Cons: "I had a middle seat on this flight and felt very cramped- by the end of the flight my legs were getting cramps and were twitchy. The boarding process was chaos- everyone gathered around the boarding area and it was impossible to board when the zone was called due to all the people in the way. Also, the food for breakfast was good but nothing great- the dinner on the previous flight was much more appetizing. Having said all that, flying Emirates was still a very pleasant experience."
Cons: "Thy did not hv service on demand in First Class. So had lunch at 10.30 am"
Pros: "Quick online check-in and bag drop-off at the airport. Friendly cabin crew. Juices etc. offered in between meal/snacks"
Cons: "Delayed take-off from Singapore once we had boarded-an hour just waiting to taxi. Delayed landing at Dubai due to volume of air traffic. This meant a very quick transfer to the London flight and no helpful assistance from cabin crew even though I asked for assistance, I had to hail a buggy down at the airport otherwise we would not have made it to our flight as I would not have been able to walk that far in the time available. If the flight had landed on time then there would not have been a problem."
Pros: "Had salmon which was amazing"
Pros: "Generally good standard, nothing to sit about but there was a selection of recent and older films and TV, OK food and fairly comfortable seats."
Cons: "While the food was ok, there were some odd omissions from the vegetarian meals that sometimes made them seem smaller or worse value compared to the non-veggie options. Still better than I've had on some other airlines though."
Pros: "Food better than average"
Cons: "Poorly designed economy seat. Unusable wifi."
Pros: "Poor unprofessional service by kayak.com My flight was cancelled by Emirates and i did not receive any notification from kayak whereas i belive it was kayak's responsibility to inform me since i booked the ticket with them. Top of all their customer services reps are arrogant ! Never coming back here !"
Pros: "The trip the crew good dealing"
Cons: "When I back to my country the trip late hours and the boarding wha so crowd it was terrible no organizing"
Pros: "Available entertainment was great."
Cons: "It was filthy with two broken toilets and one toilet that was so dirty it couldn't be used. Most sinks couldn't be used by the end. Flight attendants left duty free carts in the aisle while they sat in jump seats and chatted, which made it difficult to get to bathrooms and to move around the plane. Kids running around all over the plane, and trash all over the place."
Pros: "The food was awful. Cold sandwiches all the way. Frozen drinks. No hot drinks at all."
Cons: "Change the variety of the food same as other airlines do"
Pros: "I didn’t take the flight but there was no way to get my refund! No phone answer and no ticket counter!!!!"
Cons: "Tv and food"
Pros: "It was ontime"

Pros: "The flight from Dubai landed late in Istanbul. TK had someone there to escort the business class passengers through security to make sure we made our connection."

Cons: "Absolutely nothing!"
Pros: "Television options are great."
Cons: "Food was unrecognizable. No leg room"
Pros: "I never usually like plane food but liked Turkish Airline meals on all flights I’ve been on so far"
Cons: "I do like turkish airlines but wasn’t happy with this flight. On check in we were left with seats towards the back of the aircraft. The lady seated neit to us in the aisle seat was in a wheel chair so was a problem if having to get in and out. I didn’t think it was fair that a person who depends on a wheel chair sits so far back on a plane. She also had to deal with our crying baby"
Pros: "Food is really decent in economy. Good portions and variety."
Cons: "Leg room seems tight compared to other airlines."
Pros: "The flight from Dubai was fine. I am not a big fan of Dubai but their check-in and boarding process is efficient and straight forward."
Cons: "The food on this short flight was not very good and looked liked it had some age to it. I chose not to eat it."
Cons: "A little late"
Pros: "Again, food and service in business class were superb. A newer 777 and more comfortable lie-flat seats"
Cons: "Business class gets only one small lavatory."
Pros: "Food and service in business class were exceptional."
Cons: "Lie-flat seats hard as plank boards!"
Pros: "I loved the food and the staff are very helpful and friendly. I have always chosen Turkish airlines."
Pros: "The recline and comfort of the seat is good, and the map and entertainment system is OK."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, then we sat in the airplane for an hour before we took off, with kids screaming and the cabin at seemingly sauna temperatures. Once we took off, drinks weren't even served until 2 hours after take-off (for a scheduled 6:15pm departure - actual was more like 7:45pm). Maybe it was due to some light turbulence along the way or something, but they should tell people that is the problem and the reason they are not serving food and drinks, if that is the case."
Cons: "Flight arrived 20 mins late. Luckily my connection is 12 hours later"
Pros: "Food and crew amazing..I guess Turkish airline going to be best"
Pros: "Roominess of the business class seat and cabin, they provide a good seat and comfort is good for medium haul flights"
Cons: "The food, Turkish airlines dish up the same stuff all the time, lack of selection and in getting tired of it. Very middle-eastern fare"
Pros: "Not too long of a flight. Clean toilets and nice smelling soap and lotion. Decent entertainment selection."
Pros: "Istanbul Airport has good facilities and F&B options"
Cons: "Flight from Istanbul to Bangkok was delayed for 3.5 hours with no apology and no compensatory measures such as drinks and food or lounge access Power outlets in Istanbul airport are all round plug European with no USB terminals for phone recharging"
Pros: "Lot of empty spaces"
Cons: "Lot of rubbish on the plane"
Pros: "Largely pain free experience"
Pros: "Inflight service was good."
Cons: "Seat was a little uncomfy"
Pros: "Plane clean, newish. Went up, took us there, landed."
Cons: "The food - I always have a v-meal - is sadly inadequate. Not enough of it, and very unimaginative. And they always supply the same thing, unless I was just unlucky to have the same thing three times in a row. The entertainment system kept dropping playback, (crashing) so I would have to restart playing the video. Something similar happened on another Turkish flight."
Pros: "Rapidly becoming my airline of choice. Great service, comfortable and on time. Relatively new fleet and not cramped. Puts other national carriers (including BA) to shame"
Pros: "Comfortable flight, on time and good service"
Pros: "No complaints about the plane, staff etc and its probably no worse than any other airline"
Cons: "Long overnight flight in Economy Class, little legroom. As I am larger than average and find it hard to sleep on flights, the cramped conditions were extremely uncomfortable"
Cons: "They made us wait for 2 hours out in the open on a winter night. They wouldn't let us in the terminal. It was outrageous. Everyone was extremely rude."
Pros: "Another excellent business class service from the team at Turkish Airlines. The food offering was high quality, and the little cultural influences made it an enjoyable experience."
Cons: "The cabin design is perhaps looking a little dated and tired compared to some of its business class competitors. This was also true of comparing the 3 flights I had on a Boing 777 model versus one of the short haul legs on a more modern Airbus."
Cons: "At gate sign advertised their lie flat beds in business.. we were on business. No lie flat beds!"
Cons: "After bus arrived at steps kept on it 20 mins. 2 more buses arrived in this time. Still wait. Then let out all at once. Massive queues to board. Poeple not dressed for this. Poor babies crying Maybe 15 mins waiting in 2am cold on tarmac."
Pros: "Generally better than other European airlines particularly BA and better priced"
Cons: "Work to do on consistency with crew"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable and the entertainment was good."
Cons: "There are not diverse food choices"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by over two HOURS. When we got to Istanbul, our connecting flight to NY could not wait 15 MINUTES and instead left. We ended up spending 18 hours in Istanbul for the next flight. 1. The personnel at the transfer desk were rude and unhelpful when we asked questions. They seemed like they could not be bothered with our problems. 2. Turkish airlines did not even bother to help with accommodations, instead giving my wife and I a small bed to sleep in vs a hotel room. The only way to get a hotel room was to leave the airport, and we could not get Visas because we were American citizens. Turkish airlines was a very bad experience. Overall this was a poor experience, and I will not fly Turkish Airlines again. I will make sure my friends and family know that this is a poor airline with poor customer service."
Pros: "Food was great."
Cons: "Long waits, poor communication, either too warm or too cold"
Pros: "Walking past the Turkish Airlines desk in Dulles and knowing I would NEVER have to interact with these monsters again."
Cons: "I am an experienced traveler. I've been to 17 countries and have flown over a million miles in both business and coach. My wife encountered a problem in Istanbul that involved an airport transit visa through Canada. I am certain that any other airline we’ve ever flown would’ve assisted us, since it was easily resolved. To Turkish Airlines, this is simply a part of their business model and a chance to make more money. It took about 8 hours of our time at 5 different airport locations to eventually buy new tickets to get back the next day. Our original tickets say: “REISSUE With 200.00 USD penalty. What I didn’t see was the fine print at the bottom: “Turkish Airlines reserves the right to change rules regarding ticket changes and refunds.”. They mean it. As bad as our personal experience was, the real reason we are so appalled is that we were there long enough to see this is the norm for them. In our single day there, we saw at least 100 other travelers going through similar things. The ONLY solution ever offered is to purchase another ticket. We witnessed several people weeping. Many losing control and shouting. Their own personnel were screaming at customers (in a separate office area though, it was all yucks and laughing). These were people of all nationalities. Africans, Asians, Europeans. We were lucky because we had the means to purchase new tickets. Others clearly didn’t. I really don’t know what happened to some of them. One moment was very symbolic of the entire experience. Another vanquished traveler was paying $843 for a new ticket with cash. He handed her $845 but she, of course, had no change. Instead of the $5, he gave her two $1 bills. I had one in my pocket so gave it to her as well. She held my $1 bill up and pointed to the corner which had a very small piece torn off…no ink was missing…and sneered “I can’t accept this. She did this simply because she could. We were powerless. She knew it and reveled in it."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and I still didnt receive my refund."
Pros: "The seat was comfortable."
Cons: "The entertainment system was not working"
Pros: "The crew and the selection of movies"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Quality of food, great wine."
Cons: "Check-in Colombo was chaotic, no supervisor on duty to help organize the passengers"
Cons: "UNCOMFORTABLE SEAT IS BUSINESS CLASS, VERY OLD AIRCRAFT. LAZY CREW, ASKE FOR A BLANKET AND TOOK 2 HRS TO GET ONE ONA 4 HR FLIGHT"
Cons: "Free internet"
Pros: "Crews were nice"
Cons: "Better movies and free internet in flight"

Pros: "Boarding on time"
Cons: "Better onboard service"
Pros: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "Crew was excellent as always with the Sri Lankan hospitality."
Cons: "It was an old aircraft and felt dirty. Screens, seats, lavatories, everything was old. There were some really loud and rude passengers behind us causing disruption to everyone around. The crew tried to handle it but the passengers were just not cooperating."
Pros: "Decent crew and food. Fairly punctual."
Cons: "Check in was so slow. Slowest check in I’ve known."
Pros: "Boarding and landing"
Cons: "Food should be made With less spice more blend."
Pros: "Excellent flight apart from the delay!"
Cons: "Leave on time!"
Pros: "Flight attendant were amazing. My wife was not well and we ask for blanket. Cabin crew provided us with one."
Cons: "In flight food selection should have some variety for three hours flight. Should significantly improve Sri Lanka Lounge as the place was not the neat and clean, as it was run by one staff alone. Food in the lounge were sitting for hours and not freshly made."
Pros: "Planes and entertainment was amazing. Flight crew very good and friendly."
Cons: "The ground staff at Amsterdam were very poor and not well organized to handle issues. Some individuals were very rude and unhelpful"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Coffee wasnt an option! The staff looked tired and bored."
Pros: "Crew is amazing with a smile always. It was a new aircraft with nice screens and a good variety of movie selections. Service was excellent as well as the food."
Cons: "I was denied checking in a the counter. I bought the ticket with a friends credit card and they needed to have the actual card to swipe and then only they get access to my booking. It is company policy but it is not stated when you are making the purchase the airlines website. It says so on the bottom of the ticket on the page long rules in small print. And in all honesty who reads all of that these days. The ground crew were nice enough to take me to the airlines office at the airport and figure out a solution. It took an hour and a half to sort it out and get a verification from headquarters office in Srilanka."
Pros: "It was all positives from the time we check in until we arrived in Kindon."
Cons: "They distributed the UK landing card long after meals served and most passengers were a sleep. It would be good if they could distribute the UK landing cards straight after or before the meals."
Pros: "Crew was that much friendly."
Cons: "Not mine type food (just a suggestion please to have sri lankan varities)"
Pros: "Behavior of crew and food. The service was excellent. The flight was clean."

Cons: "seats are small but otherwise it is 5 star airline. love Srilankan."
Pros: "Friendly service."
Cons: "Boarding process could improve"
Cons: "Unfriendly ambiance. Disorganized boarding. I’m even a member of Fly Smiles. The flight attendant named Chanaka moved 2 old passengers on my side. I kindly requested to another staff if I can just move seat too because I am not comfortable. But request no action. The cabin crew are not that caring because I took care of the 2 passengers. I just don’t understand why they are unfriendly. I will not choose this airlines again."
Cons: "Before engines shut down and fasten seat belt sign off people were removing bags from the overhead. Passengers were not required/forced to stow bags overhead, blocking egress from window seats."
Pros: "Really good food the and crew on the plane was nice."
Cons: "In the Delhi airport we never interacted with anyone from Sri Lankan Airlines because a third party was contracted to work the counters, check us in, issue boarding passes, etc... These workers were all maybe 20 years old and possessed what seemed like zero training to do their job at all. They never had any answers and just smiled while saying “I don’t know” a million times. We were corralled and moved and waited hours while they ran around doing nothing."
Cons: "Flight was late and because of that we missed adelaide flight"
Pros: "Friendly crew and great food"
Cons: "Delay to take off"
Pros: "Acceptable but not exceptional as expected"
Cons: "Unfortunately the it was a bumpy ride as most of the time the seat belt sign was on and crew had to discontinue services for a while. This was beyond airlines control. The crew did not distribute the Sri lankan landing cards onboard. This caused some confusions for first time travellers as they had to cone off the immigration queue and went to pick the card up and to complete. Some foreigners were unhappy about it."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Not enough leg space, cramped seats"
Pros: "Also perfect"
Cons: "The airline needs to work on the human touch(crew). I did not understand why the immigration were questioning foreign travels for no reason. Lastly can’t reach the customer care number always gets disconnected."
Cons: "There was no uniform procedure in the flights, crew is too lazy to perform their duties. probably the first and last flying with Sri Lankan."
Cons: "We really appreciate your prompt response.Your customer service guidance is supportive for us"
Cons: "We really appreciate your prompt response.Your customer service guidance is supportive for us."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Despite requesting children’s meal, they were not available. Chicken meatballs were disgusting Overall, if it isn’t curry then it’s not worth having. Their curry was very nice Limited movies"
Pros: "comfortable timing for india."
Cons: "1.we seated at UL 604 / 52K video was not updated , one one movie was displayed. 2. Crew was asking options i food ( non veg ) but they ere delivering what they had , question is why they asked option when they don't have option of serving. 3. Crew was pathetic. They discriminate with respect to whites and Indian's. Its really bad."
Cons: "Felt like a second class train travel."
Pros: "Courteous & helpful crew."
Cons: "Terrible seats and headrests. Highly uncomfortable for an 11 hour journey especially for senior citizens."
Pros: "Staff.. food"
Cons: "SEATS... I flew with other airlines also but this aero plane has worst seats I even sat on.. My travel was of 10 hours and after 3 hours of departure I started having pain in my back...seat was poorly structured. . Its like cushion of seats were dead n on top of it that cushion behind back was too outside.. I was not able to sleep at all as was not comfortable.. Also there was no system at Srilankan airport.. No barriers for travelers so that people stand in cue but no one was following lines as there were none.. Will never fly with Srilankan airlines again ever.."
Cons: "Extremely small space, knees against seat in front, I am only 6 ft tall."
Pros: "Luggage ready as soon as through Immigration in Sri Lanka"
Cons: "Food was gritty and cold. Did not eat."
Pros: "Nice lounge. Good food. Friendly staff"
Cons: "Flight was late, may not be their fault"
Pros: "This is the way it used to be in travel! Thanks Sri Lanka!"
Pros: "Crew was nice. Plane was older model. No individual movies. Seats were old and worn, but flight was nice."
Cons: "Not sure anyone can change this, but people (Egyptians) got out of their seats before the plane had even slowed down on the runway. People were jostled about. One guy bumped me several times. They then rushed forward cramming up the aisles. Just ridiculous."
Pros: "Crew were very good. Comfortable flight."
Cons: "Choice of movies could be much better."
Cons: "Poorly organised meal service"
Pros: "crew good. seat base was not soft nor comfortable."
Cons: "have crew offer drinks more often throughout the flight. every passenger gets dehydrated and needs more drinks. I had to go to the back and get drinks myself."
Pros: "Amazing crew!"
Pros: "Excellent crew, approachable and helpful. Seat was comfortable with legroom and headrest at the right height"
Cons: "Better selection of videos"
Cons: "The delay time was too much for no proper reason"
Pros: "Crew was really great - helpful and kind."

Pros: "Your crew were great."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive, although it did help I was the only passenger in business and the food was definitely better than expected and an improvement on last time I flew with them, around a year ago."
Cons: "The cabin was looking a little tired."
Pros: "WONDERFUL FLIGHTV"
Pros: "The short flight and pleased to get food."
Cons: "A very lengthy boarding process and the inevitable delay of an hour. Not good when it's already a late night flight. No entertainment console. Quite cramped"
Pros: "The staff and flight attendants were pleasant. Good entertainment and comfortable enough seats."
Cons: "I wasn't looking forward to the 11 hour flight, however the 4+ hour delay was a significant inconvenience. We were on the tarmac in Abidjan for almost an hour, before we were informed that there were some technical issues. We were told it was a minor issue, until clearly it was a large enough issue as a lot of time passed by. Air stopped flowing so many passengers including myself became uncomfortably hot and dehydrated. The flight attendants only came down the aisle once with water, which was not considerate enough given that the air stopped flowing. Finally close to two hours later passengers we instructed to disembark without mention of how long the wait would be. We re-boarded the flight after about an hour and only then were informed that there was not enough power to fly the plane. Once we took off the air flow returned and the flight overall was pleasant. While safety of course is a priority, especially for a long overnight flight, communication could have been much better."
Cons: "I was overbooked in Addis"
Pros: "Food was of high standard Crew were polite and made the effort to make passengers feel comfortable"
Cons: "Boarding - Two last minute changes to departure gates, which confused the hell out of everyone. No announcement, just one staff shouting out to passengers."
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."
Cons: "There was no entertainment. Breakfast was standard"
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"

Pros: "Everything was great."
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: "The experience from the airport to the plane to Lome was beyond troubling. If ever you are flying internationally from NYC, never fly from Newark New Jersey. Nevertheless, upon boarding the Ethiopian Airline flight to Lome that was supposed to depart at 9:15 pm, the courtesy of the flight attendants was a bit mundane. My mother and I sat on the plane for about an hour after the time of the depart before inquiring why we have no moved and the doors were closed. The flight attendant responded with, "We shall be moving shortly." The air conditioner was barely on. My mother is battling stage 3 Cancer and is an older woman so, I feared for the safety of her health in such a condition. About 30 minutes passed, and we inquired again. This time with a different flight attendant and she said she just did not know what was going on. Other people on the plane began to panic in a sense as well because like my mother and I, they too had a connecting flight to catch. The pilot did not inform the passengers of what was occurring. So, at this point, all passengers on flight ET509 had been sitting on the plane for an hour and a half. By the time we were sitting on the plane for 2 HOURS with the doors closed the pilot finally informed us that they were waiting for some paperwork. He did not apologize or give more information as to why we were sitting on the plane so long, with practically no AC, and weren't informed about when we would be pulling off. About 10 minutes later, the plane began backing up while people were still standing because they were restless with the wait especially when we had a 10-hour flight ahead of us. The pilot then got on the loudspeaker stating that we will be pulling in the air shortly and for the flight attendants to be seated. The pilot did not apologize for the inconvenience or state how long the flight would be or what time we would land in Lome, Togo. Once we were in the air, there were many safety hazards administered by both the crew and pilot. The seat belt safety information was not given, the exit areas in case of emergency were not discussed, what to do in case of an emergency, where certain equipment would be in case of illness or an emergency, and we were still not informed about the cause of the 2 hours and 15-minute delay. My mother and I consistently checked the flight tracker and it did not show the duration of our flight, our location while flying, no flight information was displayed and as hard working paying passengers we should have had all of the information and not have to continuously ask to get a slight answer. Also, I am a vegan and they did not have food for me. But there was a flight attendant who gave me extra fruit which I greatly appreciated. The flight coming back to Newark was decent, going was the major issue. I pray we are accommodated for these great inconveniences. Because to have spent almost $3,000 and receive this type of treatment is both saddening and disturbing to me."

Truly awful experience. I have no idea if I will have seat on return flight."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Check in was a joke in Dublin, only 22 pax and they did a full team talk to start despite everyone bein there. In LAX they parked the plane in the middle of no where, and waited 30 mins before debark started, as the plane was so far away the terminal it took an hour for the bags.

I had to leave the airport to find a place with wifi because I didn't have service and the airport doesn't have WiFi. I had to contact a family back home in the US to wire me money. The money never came thru and I had to make a cash advance with my credit card which resulted in me having to pay fees. The entire process almost caused me to miss my flight and the lady at the check-in counter tried to keep my change. After wasting all the time getting the money to pay for the extra bag fee the staff were rushing me to get to the plane and threatening me I would be left behind even though it's not my fault I'm running late.
