I am just more aware that several Turkish families may fly back and forth with their children and as a passenger, you may be seated close to them on the plane- just a thought."

The crew did not distribute the Sri lankan landing cards onboard.

Cons: "The service. The worst I have seen."

I can't go into Dubai, but I can be at the terminal. To their credit, they realized their mistake just in time and I was able to make the flight, albeit barely, so no harm done."
Pros: "1st time on Srilankan, it was good. Would fly again"
Cons: "ground staff was unable to provide information about the delay"
Pros: "Colombo to Male & vice versa by Sri Lankan airlines has been very disappointing to be polite with regard to disgusting food served by them in small cardboard box with no choices whatsoever unlike a standard career nor what they practiced in the past by serving real food chics, not even a cup of tea or copy. Disgracely shocking practice by a national career & not by any means budget airline. Previously Mihiri Air served even better choice of food & drink at moderate prices but price of ticket was at least 50% cheaper. SL Govt with SLA With no regard for passenger comfort nor giving them a reasonabl deal on his sector should be condemned & boycotted. As a regular traveler I will look at Emirates as a better airlines despite with a different time slots still would be cheaper & value FO money. Wake up Sri Lankan Airlines from your slumber"

Pros: "With airlines like Frontier & United in the U.S. providing such dismal service (in every aspect) it was truly a refreshing change! Took me back to the days when flying was luxury."
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."

Cons: "To begin with they checked our boarding pass a minimum of 7 times, it makes one feel like they are in the wrong place. Secondly the seats offer leg room as an LCC, but charging non LCC money for them. Overall poor airline, staff wasn’t kind at all."

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."
Pros: "It was only a short trip from Doha to Muscat to Dubai but it went very well. The flights were on time, the plane was comfortable and the staff were very helpful."
Cons: "My only concern was that unless I caught the 4.00 pm flight I had to wait until the 7.30 pm (4 hour layover) or 9.30 pm (2 hour layover) flights from Doha both of which do not get to Dubai until 3.30 am. I could not catch the 4.00 pm as it was a work day. The flight timings are not good."

Pros: "Straight to my destination"
Cons: "The worst food you could ever have in a expensive flight. Just pretzels and water. And the plane is really old & the chairs are really stiff that hearts the back"
Cons: "The airport is conjugated."
Cons: "What airline in 2017 requires you to present your credit card if booked using CC at time of bording, then takes 20 minutes to verify this? Oman air does. In addition, they called me to tell me my flight time changed and so decided to push the flight back one day, so they rebooked me. Then at airport was told i missed my flight...completely maddening and had to throw a fit before they finally booked us on the flight we were told by phone we had yet didnt seem to register in their systems."
Cons: "I didn't make the flight, my travel partner was in an accident and the cancellation fees were more than the tickets. That sucks..."

Pros: "Crew, on time departure and ahead arriavel"
Cons: "Food was unexpected from Oman air."
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: "I liked it when we arrived at our destination."
Cons: "The seats are rediculously small and rather uncomfortable. It took way too long for us to be served beverages. And when I needed more water, no one was around to bring it. They delivered the food and then took ages to collect it once we were finished. The sound for the in flight entertainment was broken on my consol. There seemed to be a problem with the air flow: it was really hot on both flights."
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: "It was slightly better then walking.."
Cons: "Pretty much evevrything"
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.

They need to treat the cargo a little less rough."

Pros: "Nice thick comfortable blankets. Delicious food."
Cons: "Malaysian is known the world over for its great food. It's a pity Malaysia Airlines MH=Malaysian Hospitality doesn't extend to serving simple, good food. The pastry was nothing but a lump of dough with tasteless fillings, and the main meal was atrocious. Everything else was mediocre, except the crew, who were friendly and warm as always,"
Pros: "Service is great..."
Cons: "Not sure why all Sabah/Sarawak gates are at the farthest..."
Pros: "Overall all was good, except the flight been late."
Cons: "The flight was 40 mins late and because of that, I missed my connection from Hong Kong to San Francisco. Your company then offered me and my friend a hotel stay and transportation to and from the hotel., which was good. I appreciated your company taking care of us. However, it is really bothersome to miss an international connection to go home after a long trip."
Pros: "Friendly & attentive crew"
Cons: "Departure delay (10 minutes)"
Cons: "The Business class seats are very uncomfortable. There's just no leg room space when the seats are flat and its very suffocating."
Pros: "The crew were friendly although some of the announcement was not clear."
Cons: "We had bad experience with the airline because our luggage was not to be found at Langkawi airport and we had make a report. Fortunately about 8 hours later our luggage was sent to our resort which we stayed. (we arrived Langkawi airport around 3pm, we were told by the officer that our luggage will be sent to our resort at 7pm but it came at 11pm instead) The snacks could have been better. Besides the salted peanuts, it would be better to add biscuits or a slice of cake. The orange juice is good but maybe if we are given choice of warm drink (tea or coffee) it would be great."
Pros: "Quick on and off boarding."
Cons: "Food was average at best."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "Two MH flights I took were 1 hour and 2 hours late. The latter resulted in missing connection to BKK and another flight to TPE. I got stuck in Kuala Lumpur for the night and they booked me a resort that was 30-40 min drive from the airport. How are all of these reasonable?!"
Cons: "Cabin crew were unprofessional and not much caring Food was rubbish"
Pros: "Second flight was quite empty and the plane was in much better shape"
Pros: "The early arrival, and the service"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Not much. Probably only the check in from.Phnom Penh. Haha checked through to Melb"
Cons: "Couldn't check in online to secure reserved preferred seat section. No boarding passes printed on long haul section. Fight delayed, arrival delayed. No terminal parking for aircraft, which meant catching a bus to terminal. Not impressed at all. Why bother with frequent flyer class if it's not going to apply at all as business flyers."
Pros: "Gate area was good, boarding quick and arrived on time. Crew very pleasant."
Cons: "Poor quality food especially the breakfast "snack". Unable to take water on board and tiny serves of water and other drinks left us dehydrated. Far too many ads at the start of entertainmen. Repeated for each selection."
Cons: "I was having 10hrs of layover in Malaysia, the airline neither facilitates with any transit lounge, room, and lunch. I am very disappointed."
Pros: "Movie story"
Pros: "Flight to Penang was delayed for more than 3 hours for unclear reasons. These was not a clear announcement as to what was going on. Then after that, they were waiting on the crew from Langkawi. We arrived at 2 a.m. or so as a resluy"
Cons: "Lateness and lack of transparency from MAS staff"
Pros: "I appreciated the free baggage allowance and the staff were nice, but otherwise they were a huge headache to fly."
Cons: "They changed the times on BOTH of our flights by HOURS, which resulted in me having to buy a ticket with another airline to ensure we wouldn't miss our connecting international flight. Horribly unreliable, will never fly them again. Honestly airAsia was a better experience than with Malaysia Air"
Cons: "It appears the staff don't want to be there, long check in queues, poor in-flight service, average food, not even offer water in-flight, plane was dirty, entertainment average, not at the standard for a full service carrier."
Cons: "No food, No entertainment"
Pros: "There was nothing positive about the experience on this flight. With exit row seats had to stow luggage back in overhead holds which meant having to go back on landing, retrieve bag & for get way back to seat. Not Airlines fault but no gantry available on arrival. Up and down runway until available (20min) before we could exit."
Cons: "Fact that once again confirmed seating was changed from original booking. Extremely frustrating. Slight delay on take off. Had exit row seats."
Pros: "Whilst I realise this is an Asian airline the warm roll was very doughy & tasteless & the breakfast wasn't at all good."
Cons: "The warm roll was doughy & tasteless & the breakfast choice was not good at all. Would suggest a yoghurt & cereal option for non Asians."
Pros: "The boarding and entertainment..."
Cons: "The food... and the lack of announcement to advise us on the delay"
Cons: "Got stuck by lots of crying kids."
Pros: "Crew was efficient and polite in Business class. Lie flat seats were fantastic and cabin layout was great."
Cons: "Lack of movies compared to other carriers. Lack of food choices. Would have thought there be more local cuisine included especially for a flight emanating out of KL. Check-in at KLIA was pretty dismal in terms of the process - simply had no idea where to go even though I was in Business class."
Cons: "Flight canceled last minute! Lost my connection back home. Still no news about pay back. Had to book another flight on my own expense."
Pros: "Seat leg room seemed better than US carriers. Food was not exciting."
Cons: "Cabin crew very n8ce."
Pros: "Flight to KUL from BKK was a fairly new 737 and had a new entertainment system. It was clean and looked well maintained. Nice ride."
Cons: "Return to BKK from KUL was on a 737-800 that looked like it was ready for the scrap heap. Very dirty even on the outside of the plane. The backs of the seats were torn and spots from drinks and dirty hands on the backs of the head rest. All the magazines were WELL worn and one had gum between the pages. The table top had part of a meal left on it."
Cons: "I received an eticket confirmation by email, but when arriving at the airport for checkin, Malaysian airlines did not have the ticket in their system"
Pros: "The flight was quick and the service was good."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and arrived almost one hour later than scheduled arrival."
Pros: "Plane seemed new and the seats were comfortable in Business class. Crew was efficient."
Cons: "Food was stale cellophane wrapped bread and croissant that I did not eat. There is no alcohol served on any Malaysian flight of less than 3 hours. It was a bus boarding that was delayed by weather supposedly but the Tiger Air flight that was due to depart from the same gate area 35 minutes later actually took off on time before our flight. I lived in Malaysia and Singapore for eight years in the late '80's and early '90's, at which time I thought that Malaysian was the best airline in the sky. Sadly, their present service is US airline quality at best without the general ability of US carriers to keep to schedule which makes them one of the worst in Asia."
Pros: "The Crew in general was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Boarding was unorganized! The food was disgusting so I did't even eat my meal! The seats were cramped and uncomfortable."
