Airline reviews

Pros: "Crew were very gracious and kind."
Cons: "Food not as good as before"

Pros: "Crew was super nice and the food was good (for plane food)! Really appreciated that they had snacks and chocolate on hand for hungry passengers throughout the flight. A 17 hour plane ride is never the best, but Singapore Air made it as pleasant as possible. Also, we booked on Kayak and was routed through a third party vendor JustFly, which I was a little worried about - but our booking went off without a hitch."

Pros: "Flexible seating due to only very few passengers. On time departure and arrival"

Pros: "The service was excellent"

Cons: "Flight was a little warm but was able to get it cooler via help from crew but got warmer again towards the end of flight. Overall good flight though"

Cons: "Raise the cabin temperature"

Cons: "SINGAPORE AIRLINES TOK CARE OF MY MOTHER VERY WELL"

Cons: "Change the food menu, boring with the same menu"

Cons: "Transit time is good for way too tight"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Staff are great and on board service was good. Boarding is always well organised from Changi however it was a full flight and as always half the passengers exceeded their carry on allowance. Rather than addressing this bags were flung everywhere no nowhere within your actual reach during the flight. Very annoying when you are a passenger who does the right thing."
Cons: "See above. No in flight entertainment makes you feel like you're flying with the low cost carrier rather than a full service airline."

Pros: "the boarding, the attention to detail exactly how i remembered Singapore Airlines from many times i travelled."
Cons: "The food was disgraceful, the entertainment, the quality of the movies was poor.."

Pros: "The cabin crew were fantastic. Food was abundant. Most boarding systems worked well. Choosing seats was confusing on website so we were allocated seating. The newer planes had a fantastic touch screen entertainment system. The seats on the newer planes were much more comfortable and roomy"
Cons: "The small seats are squishy on the older planes. The entertainment system on the older planes were dated and difficult to use. I felt sick after the flight to UK but felt fine coming home after one long flight on a newer plane."

Pros: "Prompt boarding, friendly service, decent food, plentiful entertainment. Singapore Airlines was a great choice for my flight from Texas to England."

Pros: "Movies selection was great."

Airline didn't help with finding a hotel for stranded passengers."

Pros: "More leg room than other airlines, superb service and excellent food!"

Cons: "This flight is on an old plane. The entertainment system was dated and the seats didn't recline properly. Food wasn't very good and they offered a very limited selection considering it is a 7-hour flight. Not worth doing Singapore Airlines business class for this leg."

Pros: "I got a very good seat."
Cons: "Qatar in Belgrade didn't tell me about alchocol bottle I bought in the Duty Free and that i could not go with it all the way to melbourne even bag was sealed and receipt was visible. I lost $ buying, because custom in Doha had to take bottle. Its not right. Qatar custom could see in Belgrade and didn't tell me and the same in the Duty Free shop."

Pros: "Awesome leg room in economy. Helpful staff."
Cons: "Main courses weren’t all the great."

Cons: "Had an 11hr delay overall, 3.5hrs sitting on the tarmac only to be told to disembark for dinner at the airport. Then told that we won't be getting on until 7am the next day, but only really started boarding at 8:30am. By the time we were told about the reschedule to the next morning, it was too late to get a hotel room (too far away) and was told that I could use a 'Quiet Lounge' at the airport (which wasn't quiet). While waiting to board at 7am the next day, ground staff told us that they had to change the plane so there would be a further delay. On boarding, we discovered that it was the SAME PLANE."

Pros: "Food was excellent. Service was excellent."
Cons: "Entertainment was limited."

Cons: "Too many security screenings including the airline’s itself.!!!"

Cons: "Qatar airways should allocate separate seating for families. The crowd was generally composed of labour from Qatar and other middle eastern countries making the flight an unpleasant experience. It felt like going to a factory shift at 4 in the morning."

Pros: "The flight got delayed for 4.5 hours. We didnt receive any call, sms or email informing us about the delay. We went to the airport for checkin only to discover that it was delayed! No justification or any reason were given to us. We are travelling with a baby. We had to get a taxi to return to our home and return back to the airport after 4.5 hours. Called qatar airways and send them a xomplaint email. No one cared to answer. The worst flight ever. Will never go with qatar airways anymore"

Cons: "The dreamliner is a little tight in relation to the B777. The Kosher meals very all the same for breakfast lunch and snack"

Pros: "No flight No refund"

Pros: "food was good"
Cons: "all my flights were delayed"

Pros: "Nothing, no one was helpful at all."
Cons: "I arrived to the airport 2 hours prior to my departure to find out that my booking was cancelled. I never received a notification or nothing. I purchased a multi-trip and failed to used the ticket I purchased because I had to leave Qatar early since the person I was staying with was disorganized and flew out the country. I then purchased a different ticket with another airline because it was cheaper. Since I did that, they cancelled my whole trip. HOW? And I payed for a service I clearly didn't receive. As a result, stranded, I had to pay an additional $1,125 for a one way ticket home - more than my original round trip multi flight purchase."

Pros: "about average"

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: "Inflight Entertainment and seats."

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."

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: "Extremely small space, knees against seat in front, I am only 6 ft tall."

Cons: "The plane was late"

Cons: "i am very dissatisfied for the bad service. my friend and i missed the booked flight, but the online service and counter said they can help me nothing."

Cons: "It would have been nice to be offered a lunch during the 2h transit in Colombo as it was lunch hours."

Pros: "They have great direct service, and moderately priced. And fantastic flight times."
Cons: "The flight always leaves late from Dubai and from Colombo. Not to any fault of the airline, but screaming babies the entire flight on the way to Colombo was stressful."

Pros: "Being a QR Gold member and one world airline I opt UL for few travels by which i can get additional miles and travel in business with less money compared to QR. The service is good and the flights are always in time and well clean. There ia flat seats between Doha to Colombo and from there to Kerala is normal flight but its fine. Business class lounge in Colombo is good with free feet and head massage. When there is a five hour plus transit, free hotel is provided by UL. Overall i like their flights and service and food."
Cons: "Nothing as such"

Pros: "It was on time, good collection of movies."

Pros: "The food, the entertainment system and the seat"

Cons: "The seat does not feel soft, so hard and discomfortable"

Pros: "Staff kept us informed and it almost boarded at the expected reschedule time. I did not go to the lounge at first, the monitor was flashing "last call" 3+ hour before we finally boarded. SriLankan staff sent me to the lounge and treated me very well. The 2nd leg was badly delayed and poorly handled for most passengers."
Cons: "Fortunately I was in Business Class. Coach was loaded onto a bus and held without air conditioning for about 30 minutes. The bus went to the plane and returned because they were not ready to board yet. Poor coach treatment of passengers."

Pros: "Prompt"
Cons: "Food offering"

Pros: "In flight entertainment was good, half of the cabin crew were super friendly, others a bit bored."
Cons: "Brand new A350 but very cramped seats, it felt very claustrophic. Flew out on a 747 and had a lot of space - wonderful aircraft, flew back on A350 and it felt like flying Ryanair for 7 hours! I am only 5 feet 7 and my knees were close to the seat in front, I am not fat but the tray table was touching my stomach. I dread to think how anyone ate the food if they are 15 stone or more, I guess the table rest on the stomach and the food has to be held on.. The food wasn't good, I asked for a vegetarian meal but got bland vegan food - no cheese or dairy even though those are vegetarian. Next time I will not order a special meal and just get the standard vege meal and risk that they have one for me. Flight crew were OK, some of the instructions about electronic devices were garbled and unclear, especially about the use of laptops."

Pros: "Organized process and controls."
Cons: "The crew can be a little more personable. They were very professional and courteous. Didn’t go out of their way to serve."

Pros: "The flight was super relaxed and comfortable. We really loved the Magnum ice cream at the end of the flight."

Pros: "The crew were outstanding - providing an excellent service, above and beyond what I expected. The First Office provided 5 updates during the 2.5 hour flight which were colourful and informative (ie not just blah blah announcements but a valued and interesting announcements) and the Cabin Service Manager was personalable and friendly. At the end of her flight she publicly thanked her staff for a good days work which I thought was very nice of her to acknowledge her staff like that. All round - a great flight made very easy with brilliant staff."
Cons: "There was nothing that could be better - it was 110% perfect already"

Pros: "Crew were brilliant and I felt well looked-after."
Cons: "Bizarre flight with lunch of pasta and broccoli at breakfast time and then the whole flight was in the dark as most people were sleeping. Grotty 22-year old plane."

Pros: "not much"
Cons: "Equipment change from A350 to very old 777. Long delay."

Pros: "Friendly competent staff"
Cons: "Nothing in particular"

Cons: "No online check in, incredibly inconvenient. If is have known would have booked another carrier."

Pros: "Nothing specific"
Cons: "Old aircraft"

Pros: "flight was great, safety video and pilots were great. 8/10 would recommend. Was great for the price. Attendants were great."
Cons: "No free beverage or food even on international flight. In the exit seats, there are major pros and cons. The exit row has amazing leg room, but you can’t use your tv screen like other passengers (can’t listen to movies because there is no aux plug and no usb to charge your phone like other passengers)"

Pros: "On time, smooth boarding."
Cons: "Nil"

Cons: "No free water on the flight. I was not able to use my USA credit card. Water is essential during flights!!!! I got sick on the pain from headaches!!!!!! Water should be a basic, free thing to served on a plain."

Pros: "We were kept informed"
Cons: "I felt stressed due to an ill passenger holding up the plane. Plane returned to gate from runway. High potential of missing connecting flight. Landed on tarmac at Heathrow. Waited for bus. Took to faraway terminal. No info monitors so stood in long queue to find out in wrong terminal."

Pros: "Best flight I've ever been on! Our take off was delayed due to some guests having gotten their luggage put on the airline, but never showing up to the actual flight, so the crew was required to take off said luggage. Normally, this would be a frustrating experience, but they kept us updated throughout the process-- it felt like they actually cared. Crew was incredibly kind throughout the entire flight. Truly the best experience flying I have ever had."

Pros: "On time and smooth flight."
Cons: "We were packed in like sardines. There were no plugs to charge devices."

Pros: "The crews were good and the que to board the flight was well organized."
Cons: "Uncomfortable chairs with thin backing that allowed me to feel everything the person behind me was doing. The entertainment screens were not very clear."

Pros: "Ground staff were excellent, the comfort was acceptable."
Cons: "Entertainment was mediocre, and absence of WiFi on air was disappointing. Not being able to eat food of your choice in business class because it ran out, is not acceptable. Crew were indifferent"

Cons: "BA has gone cheap. They charge you for a cup of tea also."

Cons: "A one hour connection in london heathrow is near to impossible. I lost my connection i was suppose to be in madrid at 11am and it was suppose to be a 10-11 hours of travel. I wont make it to madrid until 6pm incremeting my travel time to a total of 24 hours for this reason it was and is a POOR and mediocre flight!"

Cons: "Sitting on the tarmac for to long...."

Pros: "Flight itself was fine."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic -- over an hour in line (and I have priority) and nearly missed the flight. Not providing free water or something is an embarrassment. Money-grubbing has its limits."

Cons: "Not impressed at lack of free food on ba flights"

Pros: "Good service by the booking staff all the way through, especially when they were helping me with the delay."
Cons: "My overall schedule was delayed 3 hours, which threw off some of my plans."

Pros: "The crew are always nice, trying to compensate for the lack of service provided by the company. sadly, its not enough anymore."
Cons: "Everything.. Check in was a nightmare, only one representative for over 50 people. and much more horrible behavior from once a great company, today nothing more than an over paid low cost one."

Pros: "On time, polite crew."

Pros: "Staff (cabin crew Tony, in particular). Hand luggage allowance. Finally, food and water on a BA flight (unlike connecting EDI to LHR flight)."
Cons: "Method of boarding, with a mass of economy passengers boarding st once at the end. I NEVER get my preferred seat (= window), and object to being charged extra to select a seat (unlike other airlines I use more frequently nowadays). Crowded economy section, with little legroom, passengers squashing bags at feet, etc."

Cons: "The plane was ridiculously freezing cold; the AC was way too low and now I am ill. I complained on numerous occasions but the temperature remained! Also there was hardly any leg room."

Pros: "Friendly crew, spacious and comfortable seating and great food"

Pros: "crew friendliness"
Cons: "no charging ports"

Pros: "Excellent food and service."
Cons: "Seats were too tight on the A380."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I paid to upgrade my seat and another passenger sat there and refused to move so I had to sit on the opposite side of the row causing me discomfort the entire flight. I have a titanium leg on my right side and always sit in a seat that allows me to stretch my leg right side of aisle. Very dissatisfied"

Pros: "The crew were friendly and took their time answering questions. We were offered liquids often, the food was just OK, the entertainment units worked well, the chairs were relatively comfortable.. We were allowed to wait for the restrooms. Yeah,,,"
Cons: "The food could be better and of course more leg room."

Pros: "Getting home"
Cons: "Extremely cold on board ,, no control of a.c. After boarding we got a breakfast bar and a drink. Nothing more till morning, then the breakfast was horrible."

Cons: "When we arrived at gate, I went to ask the woman at the desk if this was the correct location for our flight. She mumbled "we haven't started boarding yet" and dismissed my question. rudely. She was harried, and continued to act that way when the boarding process started."

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "A few peoples televisions, including my own, just stopped working midway through the flight. The crew didn't offer us much to drink (like they didn't walk around offering water enough). Also paid extra for seating which we did not get the seats I paid for pretty sure."

Pros: "Nothingh"
Cons: "Cancelled flight"

Pros: "I didn't pay to reserve a seat ahead of time, and was a little apprehensive. I checked in about 23 hours before the flight and was assigned an aisle seat with no problems."
Cons: "Once we boarded the plane, we spent about a half hour on the ground before take off. This isn't reassuring when you have a connecting flight."

Pros: "The staff are always pretty good. On the Japanese side side they were brilliant."
Cons: "The flight out out was 40 minutes late leaving and the return flight was an hour late getting off the ground."

Pros: "I had no trouble keeping myself entertained on the 10-hour flight from London to California. There were tons of movies to choose from, and that's not even counting all the television shows that were available. It's good that there are so many options b/c there is no wifi available for purchase."
Cons: "Not really related to the flight itself, but this was my first time flying British Airways, and they have a policy where you can't pick your seat until 24-hour in advance unless you pay an extra fee to choose early. I thought this was similar to Southwest's early bird check-in where no one really opts to pay for such a feature, but apparently with British Airways, everyone pays to pick a seat early. I checked in to my flight literally one minute after the site opened up and there were only middle seats left. So, if you've never flown BA before and you have a long flight, you might want to pay the extra fee to choose your seat early."

Pros: "British Airways was simply too good. It was a fantastic experience."

Cons: "Even relative to other economy trans-Atlantic flights, the seats on this old plane were way too close together."

Pros: "Extra leg room in premium economy"
Cons: "Service poor relative to global peers, food mediocre, entertainment system totally outdated"

Pros: "No one was sitting next to me. Crew was pleasant."
Cons: "3 hour delay, blankets were very scratchy, no organized announcements for boarding after priority"

Cons: "I was not informed about visa - so i need to bay 2nd ticket. I sent redound request email - but no reply."

Pros: "Got to my destination"
Cons: "The plane was from the last century. My iPhone screen is bigger than the entertainment unit in the seat in front of me... The flight was late. Service very slow."

Pros: "Flight was good.Crew was good."
Cons: "Flight delays and baggage not coming"

Pros: "Nothing to like, seats are cramped and worn out."
Cons: "No subtitles or closed captioning on movies or TV programs"

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."

Pros: "They booked for us a hotel in airport due the delay"
Cons: "My flight from Bangkok was delayed so my connecting flight was cancelled and they transferred my flight to next day at 13:00"

Pros: "Efficient boarding"
Cons: "Headphones provided for the entertainment screen"

Cons: "Take care of hygiene & control work under pressure."

Pros: "Nice clean plane"
Cons: "Snacks would have been better than a cheese sandwich"

Cons: "Business class should hv full flat beds"

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: "Nothing as such"
Cons: "Air condition was very low"

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: "New Muscat terminal is lovely. service very attentive and food v. Nice."

Pros: "N/a"
Cons: "—-"

Cons: "the QTY of food not enough. Chiken and fish dise was left too fast."

Cons: "Poor service Not adhering to time Very bad air conditioning"

Pros: "Nithing"
Cons: "In Oman airs home airport there was no service desk. When the flight was delayed the sent 1 agent do deal with a full glitch’s worth of guests. Even though the delay was over 6 hours they gave no compensation besides lounge access to a lounge that is not fully functional. The next morning (yes the delay was overnight and they didn’t provide a hotel room) they called us all to the gate only to tell us they still were waiting for the plane to be repaired (the night before they’d Told us the flight would be in time as they’d flown another plane in). Again there was only one Oman air agent and just normal airport staff to handle the full flight. People were yelling and there was a lot of anger but no official announcements were ever made and only rumors passed from those who actually had a chance to talk to the on me guy. Finally when i arrived in Bangkok it seemed like they had there act together as there were many agents on the gangway to assist people to find connecting flights. Being so late there was only on flight for me and several others trying to get to Phuket. An agent took us to immigration and told us all he’d meet us in the other side to take us to the check in. HE DIDN’T SHOW UP. We couldn’t go back in the airport to find him or anyone from Oman air and were left to find an airport employee who graciously helped us find the booking office and just make the flight. I fly internationally regularly and this was by far the worst airline experience I’ve ever had or even heard about."

Cons: "Immigration at MCT - too many flights at the same time."

Pros: "Ease of transfer and information"
Cons: "No option on dietary requirements"

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: "Good aircraft from Muscat to Bangkok"
Cons: "The food was really sad"

Cons: "The boarding was cancelled due to 5 hrs before visa arrival time and forcefully called no show."

Pros: "The stopover was short ."
Cons: "The food and the lack of entertainment. The plane was almost full and two children never stopped arguing loudly."

Pros: "Service, food, Cabin cleanliness, friendly service"

Pros: "Excelleng servive"
Cons: "Nil"

Pros: "Service was sufficient."
Cons: "We were told our luggage will be on the ramp but we had to wait at the luggage carousel. Our landing was very rough and alarming."

Pros: "Service was the best"
Cons: "Everything was perfect"

Pros: "Better options in A/V meal"
Cons: "Food."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I do like few thinks apart from most importance thing such as blanket..! We have asked for blanket at night due to freezing cold the crew has replied sorry the ground staff has forgot to load the blankets to the air craft ."
Cons: "Well pilot was very nice experienced.smootj Takeoff and landing.thank you sir!"

Cons: "1. Waiting in a closed doors transfer bus w/o AC 15+ min just in front of the plane because it wasn't ready for the passengers. (Unaceptable) 2. Flight attendant unable to pick an organized trashbag politely given to her(unaceptable) ; next time all trash will be left in the seat like all passengers do."

Pros: "Nice Service. On ground is ok. At least people are not rude. In flight is also ok. Nothing special. That's ok for me as long as they are not rude or obnoxious."
Cons: "Entertainment options are limited. This is such a short flight I normally watch series. Their selection is not the best. Boarding in Muscat Airport is always a mess."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Less legroom than usual/expected. Crew was fine but wasn't too proactive and took quite a while to get things going regarding food/beverages."

Pros: "It's good the service from the start, from check in and from the stewardess .... good flight"

Pros: "Food good, film selection enjoyable, staff very pleasant - great value for money. We went half-way around the world at 10,000m!!"
Cons: "Just the regular plane things - nothing specially"

Pros: "The price was great. Nothing not to like about my experience."
Cons: "Although they claimed to be affiliated to StarAlliance, they were not able to include my StarAlliance membership number."

Cons: "Flight did not take off due to technical prOblems with the plane. Looking to get a refund but very bad response rate."

Pros: "Prompt; good leg room; decent food on each leg of the flight"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Crew was friendşy"

Pros: "Movies"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The food The crew The seats"

Pros: "A/C in aircraft was not adequate when aircraft on ground"

Pros: "Airline service was good and on-time. Food was OK. Amenity kits provided like toothbrush good. Aircraft clean. Cheaper fares than others."
Cons: "Not being able to secure seat before 24 hours. Use of busses at Muscat airport made boarding and de-planing slow. In Flight entertainment limited choice. Much poorer than Emirates or Qatar. B787 Dreamliner system better than A330 aircraft. Some USB port not working. At least 1 toilet out of order whole flight."

Pros: "A few select staff.. the rest was rather "meh" or less"
Cons: "Most of the staff were rather inpersonal.. the food is a joke, better off without it. Kind of an embarrassment for a national airline."

Pros: "The flight attendants and crew were amazing! The airline was top notch!"
Cons: "When I finally got thru customs I picked up my bag and it was all wet. Something that smelt like vinegar was spilt on it. Also when my friend who I was traveling with picked up her luggage the plastic was ripped off. That must be some rough handling they have because this was a hard plastic suitcase.. They need to treat the cargo a little less rough."

Pros: "seats were very comfortable and good leg room"
Cons: "food was not the best. entertainment was ok"

Pros: "The flight was uneventful like you like airline flights to be."
Cons: "At Oman ticket counter getting my boarding pass, ticket agent demanded to see my exit document in addition to my passport. As a US citizen I had read you can get a visa on arrival in Dubai with just your passport. Ticket agent was prepared to deny my passage on flight. Luckily I had my computer with me with my exit flight info on it which I showed to agent. In order to satisfy passport immigration when I got to Dubai I took a phone camera picture of my exit flight info. When I got to passport immigration desk in Dubai the first thing I did was show my phone camera picture of exit flight info. She said "We don't need that, we just need your passport" and I am thinking "Scam". Oman Airline would like for you to purchase additional on the spot airline ticket from them if you don't have one. As an airline in the travel business I would think that Oman Airline would make it a point to know what the rules of travel are."

Cons: "The plan was small"

Cons: "Not as described"

Cons: "No seats available while waiting to be checked into the gate."

Pros: "Cabin crew is friendly"
Cons: "All the ground stewards are useless, customer service terrible! I tried to change my boarding pass to early flights back to bahrain, they cant do any thing but to tell me to relax and sit down! I missed 2 flights going to bahrain and they let me waited for 13hrs at the airport! Flying time from MCT to BAH only takes 1 1/2 hrs! their ground staff are super lazy for them to assist passenger are so so impossible to do!"

Cons: "We arrived at the registration desk 55 minutes from departure and it was closed for check in. Cost us $250 to get another flight. Very unaccomodating and inflexible. We were in a small airport easily accessible to the runway and could have easily made the plane. Disrupted our night. Oman Air will stay a small service unless they learn how to work with tight schedules."
