Pros: "everything"

Cons: "Food options were very similar. And the pre-made meals are hit or miss"

Pros: "I couldn’t eat the chicken for lunch, and I told the crew to change it for me and bring the vegetarian, but nobody brought anything. I was starving until the next meal."
Cons: "Take out the chicken sausage from your menu"

Pros: "Staff were very good . Business class very comfortable. I had low salt menu which was very comforting to be able to choose as salt not good for me."

Pros: "Excellent crew and great food."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Crew is very slow in serving and removing spiked plates. Food menu is very limited and not even asking for Tea or coffee, very poor service, feedback alone they ask verbally and thank to be positive. Late boarding not proper announcements"

Pros: "Crew was terrific. Great service. New aircraft are comfortable too."
Cons: "Food. Meals are of poor quality. Bland in taste and rubbery texture."

Pros: "Amazing staff, clean plane, good food, comfortable seats in business"
Cons: "Plane was very warm. Uncomfortably warm Movie selection was boring. Too many Marvel films which was ridiculous."

Pros: "The food its disgusting"
Cons: "Better service and better food"

Pros: "From new York to Doha flight seats are not that comfortable."

Pros: "Friendly crew (didn’t go above or beyond but polite and accommodated to simple requests). Plenty of meals/snacks and drinks offered."
Cons: "The seats barely recline backward which really meant I was basically upright trying to sleep for 14 hours on one leg and 6 hours on the next. My luggage was lost, despite being promised it would be delivered that day I had to wait 24 hours."

Pros: "YES--best airline for sure!"
Cons: "Congratulations on achieving excellence."

Pros: "Bad service"
Cons: "No"

Pros: "The crew was professional. I had acute diarrhoea they insisted to eat some thing before they gave me the medicine,which was perfect. They checked every time my situation they even asked if I need a doctor waiting for me at the airport."

Pros: "The Crew were excellent, friendly, professional and attentative."
Cons: "We checked in seven and a half hours before this flight as we had just flown from Melbourne Australia to Qatar landing that same day at 0435am in the morning with this flight being delayed from 805 am to 12 noon then to find that we had been allocated the last row right at the toilets. Horrible."

Cons: "The airline demaged both of my completely new suitcases. They both had TSA approved locks. One of the suitcses has a missing wheel, another one ripped zipper and missing lock and it was wraped in plastic. A few items were missing from that bag."

Pros: "Everything?"
Cons: "Nothing?"

Pros: "Best airline I’ve ever flown. A lot more space and amenities for a great price. Boarding was easier and faster than any other airline I’ve ever taken"

Pros: "The crew, especially Martin and Imen, were fabulous!"

Pros: "Polite crew, food was pretty good."
Cons: "Did not have the duty free item I pre-ordered. I asked the crew 4 times about it, four times because they said that they would check but they never got back to me to tell me that it was out of stock; until I pressed the issue."

Pros: "boarding process was efficent"
Cons: "delayed takeoff, delays on tarmac after landing/getting to gate, overly heated plane, hot food was served cold"

Pros: "Flight crew was very helpful. I didn't have any special requests, but I noticed them being extremely helpful to other passengers. Much better than US based airlines, as most others are."
Cons: "Extra security going to USA is a nuisance. Food was ok, not as good as previous trips. Lamb was only selection left when they got to my seat. Not my favorite also very fatty."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Excellent"

Cons: "They claimed they have free WiFi, but this is not true. Passengers has to pay if they want access to WiFi. Uncomfortable sitting and you cannot adjust it to a comfortable level. Crew keeps demanding sit need to be upright."

Cons: "most of us sitting in and around me didn't get any rest or sleep as we had a passenger who had a psychotic breakdown and was screaming and poking everyone. She sprinkled me with water severally, I hope we get some sort of compensation from Qatar airways for this terrible disturbance"

Pros: "All the crew"
Cons: "The airline services"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "The food was very poor"

Pros: "Qatar airways is the best airlines and they serve you like a 5 stars hotel"
Cons: "The problem is when they linked a flights frome other airlines companies. Under ( one world ) On this flight the were linked with sirlankian airlines The flight was full and a lot of older asian on flight they don’t respect people and speak loudly The smell was not good enough"

Pros: "It was normal flight"
Cons: "I have a layover for 12 hrs and Qatar Airways didn't offer me a hotel."

Pros: "Generally courteous in-flight staff"
Cons: "Checking in, they asked for certain number of miles to upgrade. I offered it. Then at the last minute they came and said their system didn't accept American moles. For a daily if their system, they denied service to passenger. This is the second time with them. Last time when another airline missed connection and this time a ticket that I purchased. Doubt if I would, again."

Pros: "I liked how kind and attentive the staff were."
Cons: "The connection in Doha was a pain...one has to one end of the airport to the other...go through security and then come ALL THE WAY BACK! UGH!"

Pros: "Cabin crew including the ground staff were awesome in providing best of its class customer service. Food and entertainment onboard was really good."

Pros: "Okay"
Cons: "Okay"

Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Hard cushioning and narrow seats on the 787"

Pros: "Great on board bar"

Pros: "same"
Cons: "same"

Cons: "1. rude staff - i stood in Jburg at the counter for 13 minutes (i checked my clock) while 8 staff ladies spoke among themselves in a myriad of languages. FINALLY one lady asked if i had been helped! I said no and she was clearly less than thrilled to be the one to help with my question. i literally just wanted to ask if my seat assignment was a window, middle or aisle, but it was like i was the bane of her existence and i interrupted their social hour. On my outbound flight (ORD to DOH) I also watched three staff members be beyond rude to guest after guest at the check in counter regarding baggage when they came forward to "re check-in" which was a new requirement for most people. There was a lot of general confusion on behalf of the consumers and the staff was NOT the least bit patient or helpful in explaining what they needed from us or why this flight had different procedures than normal. I still don't know why they were so fussy about baggage and made everyone re check in at the gate in fact. And they didnt do it to my baggage so i have no idea why they were so rude to some and completely left others alone. (didn't seem to have to do with size, carrying of electronics, i don't know?) 2. the physical flight - you changed my original flight time to something that was REALLY close for my connection from DOH to CDG, so you instead bumped me to a later flight without consulting me. it would have caused me to miss a connection flight I booked separately through EasyJet from Pairs to my home airport BIQ. I had to figure that out on my own. RUSH through Doha to make my 35 min connection and barely was allowed to board my onward Paris flight by the Qatar gate staff which was only cutting it close as a result of YOUR changes! Yet i was treated like i was somehow "late" and wouldn't be able to board ??? Again incredibly rude staff. Subsequently you lost my luggage because the connection was too tight. i landed on Friday and it didn't catch up to me until Tuesday. Not one person has said sorry or offered any restitution. And this is honestly what upsets me the most. I doubt anyone even reads this. pathetic. I work for a travel club and since Monday (so in 4 days) I have actively reached out to 4 clients to cancel and re-booked their Qatar airways flight to another carrier to get them to Johannesburg. They will be doing the same safari experience I did, but I will NOT recommend and book my clients on Qatar after my experience."

Pros: "Boarding, the welcome on board, the food choice and quality were all excellent. The seat was comfortable and I got a few hours sleep. The entertainment screen was big and clear, and the choice of films was good."
Cons: "The choice of films and tv programmes, was good, but before watching each one i chose, I had to endure a couple off minutes of an advert- the same one every time."

Pros: "Comfortable seat and good service"
Cons: "None"

Cons: "I was seated between two overweight/obese passengers and as such was very uncomfortable throughout the long-haul flight. There was very little room to move as their body habitus spilt over onto my seating area and occupied the arm space. There needs to be serious consideration to make it mandatory for overweight/obese passengers to purchase two seats to accommodate their size."

Pros: "I liked the schedule was on time and smooth plane ride."
Cons: "I did not like the room in the plane. The seats where to close and u I couldn't sit back because person behind u would complain. Flight attendants did not really going around to see if we were good r needed drinks or even smiled they looked very upset and had some attitude when I did ask for something. Customer service needs more improvement."

Pros: "Incredible staff, fast boarding, great entertainment center."
Cons: "Breakfast frittata was like rubber."

Pros: "food and courtesy of the staff"
Cons: "nothing"

Cons: "Suggestion: I think it is better if all the children and their parents/ care takers are provided priority seats in front. This will reduce unnecessary annoyance caused to other passengers on long flights and at the same time enhance the experience of the children and their care takers if special attention can be devoted to them."

Pros: "When we flew into Melbourne it was not a happy experience. Seats were cramped and arm rests wouldn't raise. The flight out, even though on the same model plane, was better. There was more room and we could raise the arm rests. For a 13+ hour flight that makes a big difference."
Cons: "Because the tickets listed the same type of plane in both the bad and not so bad flight, it is very hard to know what we're going to get. I'd love to be able to plan to avoid the bad experience, but if they use the same plane in two configurations, there isn't enough information to do so."

Pros: "Food came out 1 am melb time ,2 hours after departure ."

Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "Dont have special food for little ones."

Cons: "I found the bed rather hard for sleeping on my side. When I awoke, I was stiff and sore."

Pros: "A380 - was amazing. Roomy and quite"

Pros: "I was a nice flight"
Cons: "If was more internment would be better"

Pros: "None"
Cons: "2 hrs waiting inside the plane, it could have been handle way better"

Cons: "Everything was ok and no delays"

Pros: "They had movies to watch"
Cons: "Boarding on time, departing on time and advising passengers of the delay. We sat on the tarmac for 50 minutes without any communication. In addition, we waited an addition 45 minutes for our luggage. Thus, requiring us to change our plans. Well not be traveling Egypt Air again."

Cons: "Excellent customer service."

Pros: "Good crew. New plane."
Cons: "Leg space was tiny. Uncomfortable seat."

Cons: "Very nice trip"

Pros: "The crew was good but the seats werenot comfortable. Almost all passengers were coming from Al-Haj. They were so sick and coughing vigourously all the time."
Cons: "When we book the flight we should be informed that it is mainly for Al-Haj people. At Cairo airport they should check them to know the reason for this cough and people who were not in Haj can be seated in a separate section in the plane to avoid infection."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Very good pilot with landing and takeoff. Crew was ok. Was surprised about the food considering the short trip. Also, they revive silverware for economy class, so that’s definitely a plus"
Cons: "The airplane was a little dirty or outdated shal I say. Entertainment is almost nonexistent."

Cons: "Captain and crew where rude and the captain almost lost control of the plane as we were landing."

Cons: "Your company canceled the tickets from Kenya to cairo"

Pros: "Nice planes. On time. Very friendly crew."

Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Entertainment Luggage claim Food"

Pros: "The seats were comfortable. Entertainment was good. Food was good."
Cons: "Having vegetarian meal options would have been great."

Pros: "Crew was nice and basic service was provided."
Cons: "There was no entertainment on the flight. No screen per person."

Cons: "If flying on time its always late even more than one hour"

Pros: "There is nothing I like when I travel with egypt air we lost our bag and finally they find it after 9 hours Really bad experience with egypt air"
Cons: "They need to really understand the difference betweeen the business and economy ppl pay extra to feel comfort and have a priority boarding but in EGYPTAIR business and economy is the same no difference"

Cons: "Lagos Cairo flight is very poor and old plane, and we had 2hours delay Cairo Dubai better plane but due to the delay initially another delay in Cairo"

Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Quick orocedure"

Pros: "Good meals, and plenty of beverages."
Cons: "The aeroplanes and Cairo airport are a bit outdated, compared to other airlines"

Pros: "Clean and roomy"
Cons: "Poor food and entertainment system is unusable."

Cons: "Buy it From you by price and checkout by other price more than your price don’t know why are you know that"

Pros: "Overnight accommodations and females seated together."
Cons: "Booked too late to get vegan meals."

Pros: "every thing thank you"

Pros: "The timing is perfect"
Cons: "Maybe in the near future the airline should provided for chops and drinks that have less super on the plane.great service and kudos to the pilot and the crews"

Cons: "i would rate boaring less than poor if applicable."

Cons: "When I asked the flight attendant for an extra snack, he proceeded to tell me he had none left when I could look directly into the tray and see that there was more than enough. After calling him out on this, he complied."

Pros: "Excellent experience overall, I would definitely fly again with Egypt Air."
Cons: "Only small thing was, I have seen better as far as in flight entertainment. The touchscreen was not responsive and selection not great. I brought my own on a tablet so it wasn't a big deal for me."

Pros: "Good meals and equent tea, coffee and water in cups available. Headphones provided for entertainment."
Cons: "More garbage pickup needed- computer screens were dirty from previous flight use"

Cons: "Boarding was a little slow, but the crew was nice and courteous Seating was comfortable and roomy. The food was good."

Pros: "The crew was great. Very helpful and friendly."

Pros: "On time and smooth operation."
Cons: "Equipment was old and worn but performed as required. Needed more water passed out to drink"

Pros: "Boarding process extremely fast, starting from check-in till boarding. Take-Off on time. Very smooth landing."
Cons: "Crew lacks practical experince, especially clear due to the that flight was almost fully booked. Some lack of control or responding to passengers eventually was clear."

Pros: "The pilot is very professional . The crew is well trained"
Cons: "Beijing airport delayed the flight 75 minutes !! Too much aitting in the plane"

Pros: "Very comfortable 2-2 configuration of aircraft. Short flight with no hasstle once you board. Only convenient nonstop option between Cairo and Tel Aviv. Plane half empty. Ontime arrival."
Cons: "Not possible to print boarding pass, even at Luxor airport counter from where we originated, which means we could not use transfer service at Cairo and has to que again for all security and checkin lines. I checked in online but airline changed our seating without telling us. Egypt Air created this airline only for flights to Tel Aviv, so difficult to find checkin counters. One feels they don’t encourage people to take the flight."

Pros: "Flight from Kuwait to Cairo was great."

Cons: "Please note the wrong gate was included on our ticket and announced shortly before the flight so passengers had to run from half way across the airport. Then there were two flights announced for the same gate even though the Baghdad flight was over an hour later. Therefore the gate was jam packed and passengers flying to Amman were unable to access the gate. In all it was complete chaos easily avoided by making sure to correctly identify gates (or leave blank) on tickets and to announce the second flight AFTER the first flight concluded boarding!"

Pros: "The food is the best I've ever had. Very friendly crew. Entertainment was also great."
Cons: "Nothing really; flight was great."

Pros: "Same"
Cons: "Same"

Pros: "Bording+crew"
Cons: "Time arrive late"

Pros: "Service was great"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Late - like departure flight to CDG Departing/Arriving on time is consistent EgyptAir weakness"

Pros: "On time departure and no problems."

Pros: "so, due to my nervousness and being upset so much so that I wanted to get off the plane, the crew let me sit in business next to a friend and the pilot and crew went to extreme lengths to make me feel safe and unafraid. The pilot answered all my questions and constantly checked that I was ok. Once we took off, despite cloudy rainy snowy skies, this turned out to be the best smoothest flight ever once it departed, and the pilot was probably the best ever I experienced on Egypt Air, and many other airlines actually. Shout out to a fantastic crew stewardess (Olfat Younis) and amazing pilot!! A really great experience"
Cons: "During pre-flight checks the plane had a technical problem that needed fixing just as about to taxi to runway, so had to sit and wait 2 hours for repair which made me extremely nervous and worried"

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: "It was a short flight that landed"
Cons: "We boarded the flight without problem but when we got on the plane a man was in one of our seats. He refused to leave the seat that was ours and the crew seemed scared and said okay sir and told us to give up our window seat and now sit in the middle. Clearly a downgrade! The flight crew seemed as if they were scared to enforce the rules and that they didn't want to bother the man. This did not make us feel comfortable on the flight or have faith in the crew."

Cons: "Wasnt direct"

Cons: "I checked one bag as everybody did. When I get home, my bag got wet and stank. But I couldnt find any Egypt Air worker. Some clothes stanks also. That was terrible experience."

Pros: "Nothing much"
Cons: "Lack of entertainment! The screen attached to the chair was broken and no one bothered to see what was the problem!"
