Unfortunately the luggages didn't reach to Cairo airport with me . 3 days later they told me that the luggages in Jordan and I have to travel from Alexandria city to Cairo to receive my luggages . When I went their , I found my luggages were opened and missing much items . I made reports on the airport. The employees in the airport they wondered why the opened the selling box , and the box looks empty. The weight for this box was 32 kilograms in the time of shipping. And I paid $400 for extra weight . But when I received it was like 20 kilograms. Plus I paid $350 for Qater airline for shipping 3 luggage . That's means I paid $750 for shipping 3 luggages and I received it looks empty . I need refund for all shipping and $5000 for damages items , or I will complain this airlines through the American court . Thank you"

Pros: "I liked everything about the flight and the service was great!"
Cons: "The boarding was not handled properly. There was a 40 mins delay, keeping in mind it was never mentioned on the screens. When seeking guidance from crew members about the flight's boarding different answers were given at different time. First it was no delay, just the plane getting closer to the gate, later followed by a 10 mins wait that later became over 30 mins. Once we finally made it on the flight, when requesting a beverage the only option given is water or orange juice and if you have any dietary restrictions (even when providing said information to the airline) you will remain without food on the shorter flights."
Cons: "It was an older plane. It seemed smaller and we had no choice in entertainment"
Cons: "Worst customer service ever seen in my 15years of flying experience. Initially charged $1000 for 3 tickets for modification of return trip - confirmed the same and tickets issued (i'm fine with this). But, after i made arrangements for new date, I got a call saying calculation error and asked to pay another $500 leaving me no choices. How can such a reputed airline have no tools to calculate the pay? Other airlines offered one-way for half of the price i paid. On top of it, online helpdek promised front line seat to satisfy me but nothing was offered even if i ask explicitly. Simply declined saying i am not in priority list. Why do they make false promises? Friends, Just don't fly for food ....."

Cons: "Staff are rude in comparison to other airlines, hostess greeting us actually called my 2 year old naughty for touching the toilet door whilst boarding! Media is also limited and with constant interruptions, plus not available for take off or landing! Tray tables were dirty, I’ve honestly given up trying to eat the food on board these flights! Despite numerous tags and a note on my ticket the stroller is never able to be brought up to the aircraft door. I won’t be flying Egyptair again"

Pros: "Everything was good"
Pros: "You get out to change flight and you go back to the same plane"
Cons: "No English subtitles on TV or movies"
Pros: "I didn’t"
Cons: "I was a business class passenger and the flight might as well have been economy, with the exception of the food. There was no personal entertainment, the seat foot rest did not work — it was an old plane — the seats recline all the back to the lap of the person behind you — so when the guy in front of me was done eating he proceeded to lay back — however I wasn’t done eating — and it knocked over my glass of sparkling water —- typically even if a passenger is still eating there is still room for the person to lay back — I had to push the persons seat quickly before my whole tray was wrecked."

Cons: "Very satisfied on my travel from London to Muscat"
Pros: "Seat were amazing ,plane was clean"
Cons: "Train your staff to be more polite and smiley"
Cons: "The connection time between these two flights that you sell as a package is not enough. It is a 30 Min journey to do in a 45 min transfer, and the gate closes 30 mins before departure. Then if you’re first plane is delayed even by ten minutes (as mine was) you are more unable to catch your flight"
Pros: "Efficient boarding"
Cons: "Headphones provided for the entertainment screen"
Cons: "I slept most of flight, boarding was okay."
Pros: "The company of the 7 year old girl in the seat in front."
Cons: "The late departure. Again. With no reason or meaningful excuse given. The bland and overcooked food. The lack of space for knees and shoulders even though I'm only 1m72cm."
Pros: "Cheap airfares, direct flights"
Cons: "Flight crew did not clear cabin at takeoff and landing. Tables left down, seats reclined. Did not enforce standards resulting in restricted egress in case of emergency. Allowed passengers to get up, collect thier bags from overhead compartments immediately after landing and during taxi. Clogged asiles. Poor air con during flight. Extremely cramped seating. Low budget and lax attitude. Consistently late flights On a positive note, direct nonstop flights to major destinations at good rates. You get what you pay for though."
Pros: "Nothing as such"
Cons: "Air condition was very low"
Pros: "Movies in the entertainment screen."
Cons: "At the boading, just when we were putting our luggage we were around 5 kg more, in a bad way the turkish lady there asked us to reduce or pay. We reduced the luggage and 2 kg more were left but her and her boss isisted in a rude way to pay or to remove more luggage. We asked her boss to help us in lifting one big bag since we were all girls and couldnt lift it but he refused to help as a gentleman would do and said quick quick put the bag quickly. For sure I wi never chose turkish airline again."
Pros: "Food in business class was good although it was odd that breakfast was served at 3am while “lunch” was served prior to arrival once we all woke up."
Cons: "The flight was the “older” business class set up with lacks privacy... not normally too much of a problem but there seemed to be quite a few upgrades from economy so it was full of people chatting loudly. There were problems with boarding that delayed the flight by an hour. Also, the boarding at Muscat’s new airport wasn’t great with the lounge telling us to board while, at the gate, boarding hadn’t started. MIght not be much of a problem except the kids were sleeping on our shoulders and there were no seats at the gates."
Pros: "On time departure. Nice lounge"
Cons: "Poor service Not adhering to time Very bad air conditioning"
Pros: "Roomy business class"
Pros: "Once i got to my seat i was seated by a smelly person and the flight attendant did move me to another seat upon my request."
Cons: "Trying to get on the flight was frustrating because there’s no organization! The thing i did not like was that they made us put the cover to the window up like 30 minutes before landing and the sun was directly in my eyes! I tried to put it down half way and the flight attendant made it a problem."
Pros: "Business lounge & airport in Muscat efficient in operation"
Cons: "Seats in business were ok but do not offer the position options that most airlines offer in Business."

Cons: "Well pilot was very nice experienced.smootj Takeoff and landing.thank you sir!"
Cons: "The airport is conjugated."
Pros: "The aircrafts are good and comfortable, food is acceptable and air crew is curtious"
Cons: "The tickets issued to us specified that we were allowed 2 pieces of checked luggage each piece max of 23 Kg. The check in staff refused to accept the baggage allowance as was shown in the ticket . They insisted that the agent issued the ticket wrongly and they will only allow 2 pieces weighing total 30 kg. It was embarrassing as we had brought luggage as per tickets issued. IF THE AGENT APPOINTED BY OMAN AIR HAD ISSUED A WRONG TICKET, IT IS THE PRINCIPAL WHO IS RESPONSIBLE WHICH IN THIS CASE IS OMAN AIR. IT WAS A BAD EXPERIENCE AND OMAN AIR HAS TO COMPENSATE. The entertainment screens did not work for quite some time."
Pros: "Okay legroom, a 787 Dreamliner really is an excellent airplane though so it made up for it. Entertainment options were excellent, easily kept me occupied throughout."
Cons: "Food wasn't great, but can't complain about the meat or veggie option."
Pros: "The same... good flight"
Pros: "Staff trying to think of what we need before they ask for it. Impressive."
Cons: "All was fine"
Pros: "It is worth it to pay a little more for exit seats. They were very comfortable. The agents at checkin were very helpful. I came with a backpack, a roller bag I often can carry on and another bag to check.The bag allowance was just one to check. They wouldn't let me carry on my roller bag because it was too heavy. They encouraged me first to rearrange the luggage to make the one light enough to carry on, by putting some in the other bag that was being checked, But I explained that bag was already full. So they urged me to get my two bags wrapped together so that there would not be an extra bag charge. The ticket agent also came out to look for me---I hadn't realized they boarded so early---and walked with me to the gate. That was very nice of them. There were snacks and beverages on both flights and friendly stewardesses, and lots of movies to choose from."
Cons: "The second flight I didn't get the exit seats and was a bit cramped, but that was a shorter flight, so it didn't matter much."
Cons: "Was bumped off my flight without notice, because my flight was delayed 30 minutes. Arrived at the airport before the gate closed to tell me I was on a flight 7 hours later. Oman air employees were incredibly rude and unwilling to help."
Pros: "Other than the smile of the crew i did not like anything. It was late at night and old AC . I really liked the massage in the business lounge."
Cons: "Old AC no entertainment no usb to charge phon. Seat old with manual recline and don't recline fully. Kept us business messengers waiting in the bus more than 15 minutes because of one late passenger."
Pros: "Prompt; good leg room; decent food on each leg of the flight"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Prompt; good leg room; decent food on each leg of the flight"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Plane took off an hour late. Confusion among boarding agents at the gate. Old aircraft."
Pros: "-Muscat airport must have aero-bridge -the crew is apologetic to serve alcoholic beverages-sneaked in wine bottle 15 minutes before descent/touchdown; emirates etihad have no qualms openly and freely serving alcohol in international flights. -leg space is cramped. -did not announce baggage belt -did not inform ambient temperature and other weather details"

Pros: "Airline service was good and on-time. Food was OK. Amenity kits provided like toothbrush good. Aircraft clean. Cheaper fares than others."

B787 Dreamliner system better than A330 aircraft. Some USB port not working. At least 1 toilet out of order whole flight."
Cons: "Counter lady behavior"
Pros: "I lost the Skymiles because of that !!!!!"
Pros: "Quick flight, as little time as possible on board!"
Cons: "More than 1 hour delayed flight without annoucing it, plus while on board, earphones were not available nor handed out when I requested them because it was a short flight. Overall poor flight service and airline. They have to improve big time service onboard and on land in Muscat."
