Cons: "delayed takeoff, delays on tarmac after landing/getting to gate, overly heated plane, hot food was served cold"
Pros: "Qatae Airways is second to non as always"
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: "I flew Qatar from Doha to NYC and the meal quality and options were excellent. I also enjoyed the amount of new Hollywood movie releases and music options."
Pros: "Nothing. As flight was rerouted and airline changed"
Cons: "We didn't like the fact that our flight changed to a diff airline when we paid to fly with Qatar"
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."
Pros: "They do not provide hotel service even in a 11 hour layover saying the ticket is pomotional. If that is the case, why they sell tickets on promotion? Cheap mentality"
Pros: "Did not provide hotel even in a 10 hours lay over. The security personel does not know how to behave with passengers."
Pros: "Qatar airlines had the nicest planes I have ever been on, not to mention the most beautiful and clean airport."
Pros: "Water bottle"
Cons: "There was no snack for the people that don't sleep, it's a long flight, I'd suggest instant noodle cups for those or chips or cookies (I know they hand them out maybe once, but maybe have it near the bathroom, so when people are hungry they don't have to bother the crew)."
Pros: "Hindu meal only be vegetarian"
Cons: "All is good"
Cons: "Seats on this flight are awful, wonder why they have these seats for long haul flights, not yet all comfortable to sleep on these , I got back pain by the time I got out of the plane."
Cons: "I had a long trip and as a result I had lost my voice, and the crew had no patient at all. I feel like she just wanted to check the box instead of really making sure I got what I wish for food wise."
Cons: "Some crews are not accommodating."
Cons: "While stay in Doha the did not give any food vochcher for 21 hours what they think no body eat in 21 hours I go to counter they refused next time I will not travel"
Pros: "The food was good. The legroom was enjoyable."
Cons: "I checked two bags and had them marked 'fragile', as I had valuables in there that I packed securely. When I retrieved the bags on the carousel, the fragile sticker was mangled, and both items from both bags were broken. Pieces of art I can not replace. Also, it took over 30 minutes upon multiple requests for the attendant to acknowledge my need for assistance."
Pros: "Again, the crew were top notch"
Cons: "Comfort and available entertainment were so-so"
Cons: "They announced everything in English and Arabic and repeated the same announcement multiple times. The entertainment is good but frustrating that it is constantly interrupted with announcement about everything. I have never heard that many on any other plane. The announcement about customs paperwork was long and done 2 times in English and 2 times in Arabic. There safety video is soooo long and again is done in two languages. It was just all too much. Besides that everything was great."
Pros: "Mediocre staff, not very attentive, horrible boarding experience in Doha. Food was inedible, watched a crew member place food she had spilled onto the aisle FLOOR back onto a tray to give to someone as if nothing happened, which prompted me not to anything for an 8 hour trip. DISGUSTING!"
Cons: "I will never purchase a flight with Qatar"
Pros: "Food was good for once"
Cons: "They said they would fix the sound on my sons t.v. but that never happened so we had to swap seats and one of us didn't have any onboard entertainment although we asked about it 4 times"
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: "The was very hospitalty"
Cons: "Every thing was amazing"
Pros: "Plane was perfect"
Cons: "Transit was just tedious very long line , had to wait for along time. The crew have very strong accent which makes difficult to understand them, but they are very nice and helpful"
Pros: "Considering how long it was, not much could have been better. It wasn't too crowded, so the seat next to me was free, which made getting some sleep easier."
Pros: "Clean plane, esp. the bathrooms. Sufficient bathroom amenities. Attendants always checking bathrooms for cleanliness. Very friendly attendants yet not overpowering. This flight, the films are a bit better but still not the most recently films are on offer. Nobu's seafood soup noodles was the best!"
Cons: "Not interested in the menu's main courses. Fruits were not sweet at all. Must improve on your cappuccino. Nobu's seafood soup noodle did not come with chopsticks."
Pros: "Flight attendants are helpful from Doha to New York."
Cons: "Take the bus from the plane to the terminal in Doha. It was a hassle .from Doha to Dhaka was 3hours delayed without a notice."
Pros: "Service was good."
Cons: "Need to provide more variety for vegetarian food. Cannot serve the same food for every meal on a long haul flight. Provide more entertainment options, more episodes of sitcoms, more movie options, more language options."
Cons: "Check in to the boarding lounge was a bit chaotic and there were a lot of angry customers yelling at airline staff. The process needs to be improved."
"Everything good, Thanks so much"

Pros: "Professional service"
Cons: "1.No punishment for smiling... 2.Giving us the bread (with clippers) is great but that is not enough if we (the passengers) didn’t wash our hands. 3.Operating the seats (2 buttons) May Not be as easy as you might think."
Cons: "Check in is insanely long. Terminal 1 at JFK as usually Absolutely terrible. Line to go thru TSA is exacting 40 min at 12 am Midnight. We pay so much (in the price of our ticket) to be treated as cattle !!!"
Cons: "Nice flight"
Pros: "MUCH SPACE WITH ALMOST EMPTY AIRCRAFT ."
Pros: "Crew was awesome! Food was decent! Service rocked!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 3 hours! No explanation given!"
Pros: "I had empty seats next to me"
Cons: "The guy that checked me in was very rude and wasn’t smiling at all and then he showed my passport picture to his colleague and they both started laughing. I was trying to use the restroom on the plane but there was a person in there for a long time; I waited outside patiently and then when I got in I brushed my teeth and used the toilet. It didn’t take me that long but the flight attendant knocked hard on the door but she didn’t do that for me with the other guy. I didn’t feel welcomed at all from the crew honestly."
Pros: "It was good the service onsite the plane"
Cons: "It was delayed both ways coming in from Boston and jo apologizing or telling us what was the reason."
Pros: "Long time n not in time Food is not enough quality n quantity for health"
Cons: "Must change catering n in time , Staff working in the airport is not pro enough"
Pros: "I had a seat in the front row of the economy section so I had a lot of leg room. They kept the toilets maintained (cleanliness, supplies) throughout the flight."
Cons: "It was a 10hr flight and we were fed only twice... full meals at the top & bottom of the flight. There were no snacks or drink service in-between... a 6hr stretch. I fly a lot internationally and that was quite unusual and unwelcome. They also ran out of food"
Pros: "-Boarding was easy - The crew was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "- The leg spacing was not sufficient - The sandwich served was average"
Cons: "I was selected to seat near the window before departure dare unfortunately i found my self in the middle of the people, so dissapointed"
Pros: "The staff was friendly and an onboard meal was provided."
Cons: "We checked in online the day before with seats together and the morning getting our boarding pass they changed the plane and 1 of our seats was changed to across the plane. Luckily the lady was able to get a pair seats sitting us together."

Cons: "(see above)"
Pros: "Film selection, boarding process, amenities bag"

Pros: "Comfort, food, staff, everything"
Pros: "la comida y el serivico del personal arriba del avion"
Cons: "No me gusto la espera en algunos boarding de los aeropuertos"
Pros: "Great food, good selection of movies."
Pros: "Old school service and amenities"
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."
Pros: "Service, food and programming"
Pros: "Since we are first time travelers going from Chicago to Rome, Italy via Istanbul, we cannot compare to other airlines. But, we had a very good experience & the food, services and entertainment rvice were very good! The airfare too was excellent."
Cons: "Not certain if it's typical in long flights/but it was very difficult sleeping in these seats."
Pros: "The crew were amazing.. very helpful and accommodating! The food was also 5 stars, and the entertainment was great! Enjoyed every minute of it!"
Cons: "Boarding was not really done according to groups A, B, etc, but it was only a small holdup.. really nothing much at all :) Comfort was great, although a little more leg room might have been nice. But again, not a really big deal!"
Cons: "They took 4 days to reach my destination and my last destination they could not provide me with a seat so I had to buy it from my own pocket . The luggage came after 5 days with it missing 12 pounds of stuff. Never go on this airline. They don't care about customers especially in istambul and Mumbai. I think I should get full refund for this flight."
Pros: "Food and service"
Pros: "I had a ticket for the 7th and there was no flight on the 7th. I ultimately flew to JFK instead of IAD causing a lot of problems for me and my family that was to pick me up. Not sure I will fly Turkish Airlines again"
Cons: "Entertainment system was present, but not working. Short enough flight that we didn't need it, though"
Pros: "Reasonable good food by airline standard. Good entertainment options."
Pros: "Chair did not recline properly - 16A/B"
Pros: "Very good food"
Cons: "Seats are a bit crowded, especially when declined"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "The food was poor. No choice and the same, cut-down beef meal I had several times before. I suggest the "cook" on board be dropped and the meals improved."
Pros: "Pleasant service, good food, and excellent entertainment"
Pros: "Service, food."
Cons: "Check in booth when we checked in bags were very difficult to deal with."
Pros: "Service from the flight attendants were fantastic. The food was delicious and the entertainment included plenty of movie options. I'm also glad that my bags were never lost throughout all of my flights this summer on Turkish Airlines."
Cons: "I know seats in the 777-300 recline but do not disrupt the next row's space. That was not the case on the Airbus A330-300. It would be nice if the same seats were on the Airbus aircraft I flew from Istanbul to Bangkok."
Pros: "the flight from Istanbul to the U.S. was amazing, I watch 3 great movies and some wonderful meals. Even though I,flew economy I,felt like it was business class - foot rest pillow and blanket and they hand out hot towels and packs with toothbrushes and socks and slippers. I will definitely. Fly. Turkish Air again based on,this very positive experience"
Cons: "There was one flight attendant who,thought she was all that ..she was rolling her eyes at passengers and had a snotty look on,her face."
Pros: "Love everything... i was actually surprised... The crew was the bes"
Pros: "The food was good, the flight attendants were mostly friendly and normal."
Cons: "While the flight attendants and crew inside the airplane were all friendly and nice , I can't say that for the employees inside the airport!!! They are the WORST employees I've ever seen! Multiple times, when I was trying to ask for help, they barely made eye contact or rudely ignored me! I was shocked! Never have I ever seen airport employees act so rude! One girl even was half asleep when I went up to her to ask for directions. She just pointed to the direction and didn't even look at me or say anything ! Never again will I fly with Turkish airlines."
Pros: "Entertainment was great. Free checked bag was nice. Food was very good. Cocktail service was very good."
Cons: "Still a tight space. US to Europe by going several hours out of the way to Istanbul still doesn't make any sense."
Cons: "Delayed a couple hours."
Pros: "I liked the food on my flights. The seats were comfortable. The movie selection was very good as well. They had a lot of new releases."
Cons: "I noticed that food service on both my Turkish Airline flights for this trip was slow. I feel in general passengers take a longer time to be served and the time it takes the crew to clean up the trays after a meal is even longer. Some the the passengers win my flights were even getting out of their seats to bring their trays to the flight attendant station because they wanted to be more comfortable in their seats. I also noticed they did not come by to collect trash as frequently as other airlines. The entertainment selection was good as far as movies but the music option was very limited and difficult to navigate."
Pros: "The overall experience was very good. We had a 19 hour lay-over, pleasantly spent in a new, very comfortable hotel to which we were shuttled and from which we were returned to the airport the next morning -- hotel/shuttle comped, as was the impressive breakfast at the hotel. We will definitely fly TurkishAir again. The staff was excellent and the in-flight entertainment system was wonderful."
Cons: "The cabin was very warm during the flight. No personal air vents to help cool down. That is my only small complaint."
Pros: "Better food than most airlines. Appreciated the kit."
Cons: "They ran out of non-beef options for dinner. Flight attendants weren't the friendliest. No usb charger. Seats weren't very comfortable."
Pros: "Good cabin service and everything else was fine."
Cons: "I'm 6ft 3" tool so leg room always a challenge but it was particularly tight on both flights."
Cons: "Will send email re all the problems encountered . Never did make flight and Turkish Airline counter was shut down when I attempted to reschedule the flight....no telephone number listed on E ticket confirmation, Tam Linhas Aereas counter personnel were unable to assist with issue. Overall, totally dissatisfied ....felt that I was hung out to dry in at the Buenos Aires Airport!"
Cons: "Passengers less rude"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Old seats Poor entertainment"
Cons: "Wider seats"
Pros: "Quick! Friendly! On time"
Cons: "We’ve missed this flight due to a medical emergency. Called before the flight took off to advise on the situation and ask for help to rebook the same flight later once the health status is stable. Have been told that there is absolutely nothing that can be done to be partially partially refunded at least for the 2nd flight that had to be catched after over 30 hours, which is unacceptable."
Pros: "No comments"
Cons: "No comments"
Pros: "Service, food"
Cons: "The crew was polite, very comforting, and smooth flight ,"
Pros: "Nice gifts for the kids Crue was super nice."
Cons: "Plane seats keep getting smaller it sucks. Getting to the point I don't want to fly."
Pros: "The crew was fine. The seats were as comfortable as economy class could be"
Cons: "The food taste might have been improved"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Good airline and good service"
Pros: "the food was delicious and the flight was smooth, the crew was friendly"
Cons: "navigation for the tv was extremely difficult. They also took a long time to pick up al the food trays on this flight"
Pros: "Понравился вежливый персонал при посадке на рейс"
Cons: "За 9 с половиной часов мало давали воды. Первый раз предложили напитки и воду через 2 часа после вылета, и сразу же горячий обед, где тоже были чай/кофе. После этого около 5-6 часов ничего не предлагали, и почти за полтора часа до приземления в спешке предложили воду, напитки и второй горячий обед, в котором предлагалась паста с курицей или паста с сырным соусом и грибами. Я выбрала второе, на деле никакого сыра там не было, соус был как чистый майонез, только горячий, и грибов было два маленьких кусочка по сантиметру каждый. На вкус это были просто горячие макароны с майонезом. Да и зелень в салате уже была темная. Полтора месяца назад на рейсе Нью-Йорк - Москва еда была вкусная, да и до этого никогда претензий не было, в этот раз одни неприятные впечатления"
Cons: "Overall it was a good experience, my only suggestion is that airline should I force the carrion rule a little more"
Cons: "It was 1hr and 30 minutes delayed not for technical issues not for weather not for traffic just they said we are waiting an other passenger That is why I missed my New York to Boston flight that guy he didn’t miss his flight but I missed because aeroflot had a stupit customer service"
Pros: "Crew was nice very polite and helpful that is why excellent rating. Comfort was as good as that can be in economy class, very good food and decent entertainment."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit inconvenient as the plane was not at the gate and bus ride was used to access plane."
Pros: "The food, I must say, was the most impressive thing. They give away some souvenirs for you during the flight which was awesome. I even got ice cream as dessert. I can't tell what to say was wrong with the flight. I will definitely recommend Aeroflot for sure."
Cons: "Food was awful. Flight attendants were unfriendly. They would talk to you while you were wearing headphones and then get irritated when you asked them to repeat what they said. They were always in such a rush even though the plane was mostly empty. Strange"
Cons: "Вторая еда была очень странной. Непонятные равиоли со шпинатом"
Cons: "Food was awful and a ton of kids, one of which kicked my seat the entire 8 hours."
Cons: "have a seat by check-in that very over weight people must be able to fit in without raising the arm rest or have them buy 2 seats. 9+ hour flight was extremely uncomfortable and smelly because of that."
Pros: "The aircraft was comfortable, the inflight entertainment provided in each headrest was provided plenty of options. The food was wonderful (much better than I would have expected). Slippers and an eye cover along with pillows and blankets made for a comfortable flight. Lastly the price was right!"
Cons: "A very minor issue not even a complaint, but the sodas taste like diet mixed with regular sugared soda."
Pros: "It was the second time I travelled with aeroflot, and my experience was excellent. The crew was amazing, very friendly, they spoke Russian and English, food was excellent (they fed us like pigs, haha),great movie selection for on board entertainment. The airport in Moscow was easy to navigate, despite all the negative reviews I read before my visit there, I found my gate in no time and almost everyone who worked at the airport spoke English. The airport was super clean with a wide selection of food stores and gift shops. Good prices, too. I'm definitely flying aeroflot again."
Pros: "seats were comfortable"
Cons: "my meal request did not make it to flight, and the substitute food i received was very poor"
Cons: "Rude air hostesses. 3 hours on taxi which I’m willing to forgive because of the weather. They took an extra three hours to send our baggage through to baggage claim because their crew “refused to work in that weather”. Get a hold on your recruiting. And then my baggage doesn’t show up. All my woolens were in there and I have nothing to wear and it’s freezing outside. They do not give me ANY compensation of any sort. This is the worst experience I’ve ever had and all just save a couple hundred dollars. Not worth the hassle! I’m still trying to get in touch with them to ask about my baggage but they’re unreachable."
Cons: "Dated plane, infotainment didn't work in my seat, usb didn't work"
Pros: "Efficient boarding"
Cons: "Absolutely no leg space you're packed like sardines in a can. I couldn't fit into my seat by luck no one was next to me so I sat sideways which was also vey uncomfortable. The food was cold and I wldnt take it again"
Pros: "THE BEST COMPANY!!!!!! EXCELLENT SERVICE! AEROFLOT REALLY CARE about people!!!! THANKS!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Great Food, Great Service, Great Entertainment options"
Pros: "The seats are comfortable even in the economy class. Plus we got slippers so I could kick my boots off."
Cons: "For whatever reason we got bused to the plane. The bus went for couple of miles around the airport before we got to the plane. Then we had to walk to the plane in the rain. This is very unusual event, as I fly often this route and this is the first time it occured."
Pros: "The crew did a very good job"
Cons: "It was too hot inside the cabin"
Pros: "Good entertainment selection, even in economy. USB chargers are handy."
Cons: "The boarding in SVO was a zoo. The location of a gate, with a huge pole in the middle; the way boarding was announced and handled, it was pretty much every man for themselves. Agents at the gate were rude. On the plane, it was hot most of the time on the plane. We had to actually ask to turn up the air."
Pros: "The option to watch th and movies is excellent even though mine did not work. I appreciated the 2 meals and one complimentary glass of wine."
Cons: "For my long 10 hour flight from Moscow to NYC, my tv did not work and the connection to plug in my cell phone went in and out. The crew was not friendly, though polite. I would have preferred more space."
Pros: "The female flight attendants are all stunning in their bright orange uniform."
Cons: "The planes are very tight. Ever since they updated their aircraft they added one or two rows and planes became so narrow! On the way to Moscow we didn't have an entertainment because they monitors didn't work for 30% of the plane. On the way back they delayed the flight for 5 hours because they plane had technical issues and they were changing it. We missed our connection from NY to Miami and since it was a separate ticket I lost those tickets. They didn't update us while we were waiting what's going on. A few times they would announce boarding on the electronic tableau, people would line up and wait for 40 minutes. The staff would just look and say nothing or smile and say "we don't know why you are standing, I didn't tell you to line up!" We had a special meal on the flight. They gave you exactly the same food twice. I was just laughing but other people who had special meals were really upset. If someone asked they would probably say "it's your problem that you don't want to eat like the rest lol! Next time when booking a flight I'll pay more but have a normal experience and not the torture "Russian style""
Pros: "I wasn't sure what to expect, but the airline was better than I thought. Good food (2 servings), decent entertainment, and nice amenities (pillows, eye mask, slippers) for economy class for an international flight. For the price I paid, I would fly Aeroflot again. I wish I would have gotten my Russian transit visa prior to my trip. I knew about it, I just didn't want to pay the $200. SVO airport is great and open 24hr, but having a 20hr layover is tough. p.s. Don't let a hotel/Airbnb tell you you don't need a visa - you do! I watched 2 girls have meltdowns in the airport because they had hotel reservations, but no visas. Sad, wet eyes does nothing for Russian airport officials."
Cons: "The staff, but you have to remember that Russian customer service is different from American. Some of the staff were really friendly and nice. I think they were compensating for the overtly rude ones, so it even itself out. Boarding at the airport isn't always clear if your flight is boarding or not. Pay extra attention to your gate and time changes."
Pros: "Great, Friendly Staff. The in-flight movie/TV options were great. Very comfortable, quick, and efficient"
Cons: "No vegan meal option. The in-flight entertainment computer was slow, wouldn't charge my phone through USB, and the headphones were broken."
Cons: "Entertainment system was not working properly, crew weren't able to fix it. Offered to change seets ( can not do that - was traveling together) They forgot my laggage in Moscow, people in JFK terminal was slow and I was waiting for any help for at least 20 Minutes ..."
Pros: "The Russian hospitality, the food, the route of the flight, the 3D airplane tracker."
Pros: "Love the crew!! Not bossy and very kind. Comfortable seats. Food is okay, but nice amounts!"
Cons: "Can't hear sound on movies hardly at all with the standard issue earphones. Volume was fine, but distorted voices. Wonderful selection of movies, etc."
Pros: "Great food, stuff and free movies"
Cons: "The flight attendant seemed to have been bothered by the fact that she had to tend to my boyfriend and I. Any simple question we had may it had been what was on the menu for lunch or a simple request for ice in our drink; we received with a rude tone. When our plane was about to land I had my eyes closed because I had been traveling for 24 hours and was still very tired and she (Olga, I believe her name was) yelled saying "MIS, WAKE UP AND OPEN YOUR WINDOW!" this was by far the WORST flight experience I have ever had. I suggest this particular flight attendant reconsiders her career choice because customer service does not fit her. It is safe to say that I will NEVER fly Aeroflot again. And will be spreading the word to my colleagues and friends as I too am in the travel business and know how important it is to feel comfortable and safe when traveling abroad."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable, or as comfortable as economy can be. I would say, it was as nice as Lufthansa, just with fewer drinks. We also got ice cream between meals."
Cons: "English is not the flight attendants strength. It was manageable though. The drinks came out before the food. That was a little strange and left my thirsty after my meals."
Pros: "The seats are spacious and there is a pillow and blanket for everyone. I had no trouble storing my bag in the overhead compartment and I was happy to learn I didn't have to pay extra for two suitcases."
Cons: "The food was terrible. The movie and tv selection was not to my liking."
Pros: "The flight and service was great as usual. The TV not working made the flight boring as there was no entertainment and the fact that the flight was super packed made it so I couldnt get comfy."
Pros: "The amenities were great, the service was prompt, and the attendant made sure that I had my vegetarian meal."
Pros: "The blue seats"
Cons: "The seating map is incorrect (shows empty space in front of 18b but actually 18a so ended up sitting sardined and not with an open space in front of me. The transit employee assured me my seat was empty in front but I think she didn't give a sh... She said I could get an exit but that I'd have to pay more. Something tells me that the bumpkins that were in the exit rows probably didn't pay extra... Informed Anastasia the hostess twice the obese guy on my right was literally sitting on me and she did nothing to assist with my comfort--why do they say to tell them and they'll do all they can when they don't? For most of the flight my arm was crushed by Igor's (that was his name, really!) obese arm and fat pannus. It was awful and though there were seats just ahead of me, i was refused. I said "so I just have him sit on me and be uncomfortable" she responds "uhh yes". Thanks Anastasia, you're a keeper (of uselessness). Ektarina was a clueless hoot too. She served the Russians to my left and right first and me last (I was in the middle seat), how do you just go from the window guy to the aisle guy then the guy in the middle? I've NEVER seen that ever. She's like "what would you like?" I'm like "what do you have?" She responds "you don't have menu? Uhh..." No genius, you nimwit, you didn't give me one, had you i wouldn't be asking. She came back and asked in russian something about drinks, I said "what?" And she looked at me then turned away. Are you serious? What a rude twit. An Olga comes by at the end, speaks to the two russian guys on either side of me with a smile, says nothing to me, and walks off. Wtf? I think she was asking if they were happy with the service, no wonder she avoided me. The food was horrendous. The worst plane food since 1989. Think of the most disgusting russian dishes and turn it into plane food from the 80s and voila, cuisine a la Chernobyl. I mean how does any carrier manage to serve 80s quality food?! Then they take forever to get the trays so you're stuck looking at the disgusting slop still in your kennel area. Air circulation system is non existent, you don't have any individual vents and they kept the plane a roasting temperature with me being even more hot thanks to the guy sitting on my right arm. No wonder there's an odor of armpit, beet, and onions. I had the honor of leaving my ethnic goat scent to the BO stew. Circa 2001, I Flew to India with them, got stuck in Moscow for 3/4 day with no hotel space, the worst cafeteria meal, & a bunch of grumpy employees who didn't care. It was cool in that this-is-what-the-ussr-must-have-been-like way. The plane I swear was a former army plane and cigarette smoke emanated from the cockpit. I vowed that my family nor I would ever fly them again, I stuck to that until this flight only to learn vows should not be broken. I'm a frequent traveler and have been on the poorest countries national airlines and without hesitation Aeroflot is the absolute worst."
Pros: "Plane was clean, seats were comfortable, provided two meals, lots of beverages, movie choices"
Cons: "Unable to communicate with staff prior to boarding due to language barriers, VERY unorganized boarding"
Pros: "Flight departed and arrived on time. Boing 777 was in very good condition. Good service on the plane. Good entertainment system with choice of free movies and music. I used to fly only Delta to Russia in the past but after this trip I am convinced that Aeroflot is better."
Cons: "They changed my seat that I reserved online to a different one. It was actually changed to a better seat but the bottom line is that they changed it without asking me."
"They didn’t notify anyone that the CDC had changed it’s entry requirements and cost me my flight. I will never fly with them again."
Cons: "egyptair flight 985 no space between sets no social distancing very bad not comfortable flight"
Cons: "Stop feeding us bread"
Pros: "Seat was weary at 52H. Although there were other empty and more comfortable seats, the crew didn't let me have one."

Pros: "Amazing plane"
Pros: "The captain"
Pros: "I liked the new airplane. Compared to my jfk-cai flight the plane was spotless and everything worked. I didn’t feel like I was on a flying greyhound bus. The crew kept the bathrooms cleaner which was great."
Cons: "I was very disappointed that I couldn’t bring water through the gate security in Cairo to jfk. There was nowhere to purchase water after the gate so I felt dehydrated and inconvenienced by having to ask for water so many times."
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "Terrible business class."
Pros: "On-time arrival, direct flight"

Cons: "EVERYTHING ! this was the worst airline I have ever flow !"
Cons: "That I could check in online instead of the airport, to get to pick the seat I want, I was placed in an isle seat 2 rows before the end of the plane, right behind me the we only 2 seats row, and almost every single one that went to use the restroom had to bump into my chair in their way back"
Pros: "Fully flat seats, friendly crew, good food. Excellent price"
Cons: "Dated slightly worn seats"
Pros: "Good price. Direct flight. Decent food."

Pros: "Big plane, multiple boarding points. Food did its job & helped with the long flight. Movies weren't expansive, but good choices to kill the time."
Cons: "The crew did not have the key to unlock to doors leading to the plane, which forced everyone to wait 30 mins standing in line. It was quite silly! It delayed our flight about 30-45 minutes - not much, but really painful when the flight is almost 12 hours. The crew didn't tell us what was happening either, but it was pretty obvious."

Cons: "Great services and very clean air plane"
Pros: "Excellent experience overall, I would definitely fly again with Egypt Air."

Pros: "Time..... everything was on time no late ..flight take off on time with good security Processing"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "I liked everything about the experience on the actual flight from Cairo to New York. Staff was great, food was great (two meals), drink options were great from juices, sodas, water, tea, coffee all great. the entertainment was awesome with so many movie/tv show options. and you can always get up and ask for a beverage if you were still thirsty, and plenty of toilets on the plane so rarely a line greater than 1 person."
Cons: "They seemed to run out of chicken as the dinner meal, when they got to my the flight to Cairo from NY they also ran out of chicken, the person next to me got the last one, the same thing happened to me on the way to NY, the person next to me got the last chicken, i was kind of upset but the other option of beef was still good."
Pros: "We flew JFK to CAI roundtrip in coach. The whole process from check-in to landing was good overall, and the meals were also of good quality and complimentary as was baggage check-in (compared to US carriers who charge you for everything)."
Cons: "The bathroom got a little dirtier on the long haul flight compared to what I remember on other carriers, and phone support is only available during business hours which turned out to be ok, but could be a problem if you need to have a question answered last minute."
Pros: "They have some interesting old films like Charlie Chaplin in their silver screen entertainment choices. Accommodating flight attendants."
Cons: "There did not seem to be any air vents to adjust for cooling down when I felt hot."
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: "Food and service was good."
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."
Cons: "i need a refund. our flight back to NYC from dubai was rescheduled with significant delays such that it would affect our jobs. We decided to book a return flight via qatar and we need a refund for this booking"

Cons: "On my flight, passengers were rude to the extent that a fist fight broke out and cursing amongst everyone occurred."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "Gate was in a new addition to the SAW AIRPORT. Far from cafes and shops. After deboarding from the plane, it was a bit unclear whether to board a bus or walk into the International Terminal. Perhaps more frequent flyers are familiar with this routine, but signage would assist new passengers."

Cons: "Discomfort, very small airplane for a 4 hours trip. Crew is angry and rude. Food is expensive and not tatsy."
Cons: "Poor airline"
Cons: "first of all the prices of drinks are very high and they rip you off since there is no option. but with that i can live. what i cant live with they try to save on gas and till you dont yell they dont turn on the AC and then they try again to lower it and again you have to complain. i hope to never fly with them again and when you say something you get a sour face"
Cons: "Old plane, really crowded seats, the air crew doesn’t bother to clean the lavatories. Those who are working that is as the toilets up front were out of order..."
Pros: "You get what you pay for, nothing more and nothing less."
Cons: "Almost on every other airline you can check using the self-check-in computers at the airport; on Pegasus you can't, which caused unnecessary queues at the check-in desks (both there and back)."
Cons: "My bag did not arrive"
Pros: "Checked in online with a carry on luggage, no waitşng in lines. Flight was on time and landed on time. Crew was nice."

Cons: "Poor everything is poor, they are very bad specially the crew when u check in they will let u pay even for the hand baggage extras kg even if u did shopping from the duty free they will let you pay for the weight. The worst crew ever."
Cons: "My tent poles, which were attached to my bag were lost. I am hiking in Switzerland and have no tent now!!!"
Cons: "The way of talking to the passengers."
Pros: "The cappuccino"
Cons: "Late departure and late arrival. Huge queues at Gatwick immigration. Too hot throughout the flight - the crew didn't bother adjusting the temperature it was left to the assemblers to complain No in flight entertainment whatsoever Had to pay for a coffee."
Cons: "The plane was stuck on the ground 1.5 hours approximatly in Istanbul, and nobody had told me why?!"
Pros: "I never made this trip due to Pegasus delays - see above"
Pros: "Flight crew"
Cons: "How could you ask about entertainment when there is nothing to intertain in these planes! No screens, expensive and bad food, even the menue and magazines were not available on half of the seats, not to mention the worst and smallest seat i have ever been in, although i travel on many other economic airlines! There is nothing but poor, bad and boring flights. The sad thing is that i payed too much for this flight. Oh i forgot, it's also delayed and we wait for half an hour and then, they came with only one bus to take all the people to plane whwn there are many people who can't hold themselves in that crowded bus!"

Cons: "The staff's English was not understandable at all even for a native speaker."

Cons: "All food is for purchase. No in-flight entertainment."
