"EXCELLENT SERVICES"

Cons: "The service was excellent. The food was sometimes a challenge for me but that is just my food preferences."

Pros: "Add snacks between the males"
Cons: "Thank you"

Pros: "N"

Pros: "The cre was really nice and very attentive."
Cons: "The flight left the gate an hour late without giving us any explanation, I missed my connecting flight. The airline did offer a hotel to stay in, but no other apology or explanation was given to about 15 of us who missed a connecting flight."

Pros: "All is well"
Cons: "Everything is excellent"

Cons: "Poor Flight and worst food and bad staff from Doha Airport. Worst food in qatar flight"

Pros: "Qatar airlines treated us like we were in first class the flight attendants were A+++"
Cons: "Everything was perfect other than the food was not so great i had stock ache the entire flight."

Pros: "Crew was very attentive & met all my expectations."

Cons: "Better vegetarian food"

Pros: "Because I was in the bulkhead seat - it was good."
Cons: "My first flight arrived 30 min late which meant that my 50-minute layover was tight. But instead of holding the next plane for us, they forced us to re-book on a flight leaving 14 hours later! I was not ok with this so I pushed the issue and they put me on the flight leaving 6hrs later. :-((((("

Pros: "Crew and qsuite were top notch. The dine on demand is the best. One little nip pick. The crew knew I was going to sleep. It was a 1:20am departure flight and did not offer to make the bed/mattress..."
Cons: "Wish we could’ve park at the gate instead of bus over to terminal. Given Doha is their hub, should have been able to accommodate that. Also, do they update the movies every month? Still the same movies as in June."

Cons: "Improve quality of service and cleanliness."

Pros: "The crew was good. Good movie selection."
Cons: "The food. The vegetarian meals were both noodles. And the meals were not very healthy. Too high calorie. I couldn’t figure out how to customize my meals On the Qatar app"

Pros: "The crew and accommodations"
Cons: "Availability of vegan meals"

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "The Crew was amazing, the Seat a bit better this Time only 3row of 3 Seat"

Pros: "My comments are as above . On the Auckland to Quatar leg of my journey Excellent airline and crew."

Pros: "I really like the Qatar flight from Auckland to Manchester. But beware now that the Akl leg leaves 1 hour later the transit in Doha is officially 1.15hr. But since the first leg is always getting in and you have to bus to the terminal, transit time is about 30 mins. Although they are efficient and i made it this time, i wouldn't want to do this with kids."
Cons: "Short transit time"

Pros: "Overall the flight went well. Flight attendants were attentive and boarding went fairly quickly and flight was smooth."
Cons: "The bathrooms ran out of water. Not a great movie selection and almost didn't have any choice for lunch."

Pros: "Excellent flight attendant service. Some of the best airline food in the world."

Cons: "Transit 9 hours without hotel"

Pros: "Boarding"
Cons: "Overall excellent"

Pros: "Food service was good"
Cons: "Flight was delayed leaving LAX and was about an hour late to arrive at Doha. Fortunately, despite the 45 minute window for connection, I managed to get my connecting flight to Islamabad thanks to good support from ground staff in Doha"

Pros: "The flight attendants were professional and polite, I requested low-fat meals and they were good, the entertainment was very good, the air temperature was comfortable, most flights I had were on time."
Cons: "The legroom was a problem. Seats are kind of narrow, and then, with the lack of legroom it’s somewhat challenging to shift your legs, especially when the seat in front of you goes back! I felt like the person was almost in my lap. My cup even got crunched. I think my biggest issue, though, lay in how I was treated after paying $127.00 to obtain a day pass for the lounge each way. For my inbound flight my purse was branded with an “economy” class luggage type tag, and I was made to feel as though I was trying to sneak in. I had to show my boarding pass a number of times to employees after asking for the location of the lounge in order to be directed there, and then my credentials were examined as though I was trying to get into Fort Knox. Upon arrival at the desk, I was somewhat tersely informed that I had 6 hours. I went out of my way a bit in order to fly Qatar, which is supposed to be so wonderful, and I was underwhelmed. I’ve had better experiences on Lufthansa and Turkish Airlines."

Cons: "I used Qatar airways 3 times so far. In the last flight, were a connection has 8 hours between 2 flights, they deny me to stay in a hotel. The last 2 flights which have exactly the same schedule, I used the hotel in that 8 hours between the 2 flights. I asked why, they told me that my ticket is not eligible to the hotel, although, I bought the last two times from Kayak, with almost same price. My first flight with Qatar Airways was on July 2017. My second flight with Qatar Airways was on August 2017. My third flight with Qatar Airways was on Jan 208."

Pros: "QR528 landed in Chennai at 01.50 hrs IST on time was out of plane in 10 mins and then the endless wait for my baggage after immigration check, being a Indian citizen no issues but was able to collect my baggage at 3.02 hrs Doha - Chn flying time 3.50hrs, baggage collection 50 mins, its bizzare & absurd"

Pros: "Flight attendants very attentive and helpful, wheel chair provided at Doha airport by helpful and friendly staff, comfortable seating in business class. Overall I would give my flight an A rating."
Cons: "I do not have any complaints, except one bathroom I used was not as clean as I would have preferred."

Pros: "Nil"
Cons: "Seat not very good"

Pros: "Small airport"
Cons: "Transfer is inconvenient."

Cons: "Ground crew attitude at checkin,boarding. Only drink choices 2 juice boxes with sad snack. Entertainment screen malfunctioned, poor sound quality cf prior leg. Long rescreening process on connection FROM USA flight. Long wait to deplane to stairs/shuttle bus. Long wait for luggage."

Pros: "Being able to sleep."
Cons: "Food was not good. Rice was not fully cooked."

Pros: "Qatar airways is the best in middle East"

Pros: "Food for kids wasn't great my kids did not eat while traveling more food choices like fruits and cereal and milk and stuff would have been much better please take a look at kids nutrition chart and popular food for kids I think need attention I have a lot food service mangament experience and own one now thanks"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "all"

Cons: "Poor choice of inflight movies"

Pros: "Aircraft was much better than the flight from US, food was great. The only thing I wished for was more movies."
Cons: "Lack of movies"

Cons: "Not that many choice in movies"

Cons: "- Airline changed flight and offered little forewarning for what was a material change (from 1 hour transit time to 9 hours) - Boarding process was inordinately slow with little attempt to move this along quickly - Service was halting at best"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "In their Business Class they only had two shower room and they wait was 7 hours! I now totally dont trust Kayak and it's ratings. Qatar Airways sucks!"

Cons: "Seats in economy very uncomfortable for long Doha to LAX flight. When person in front of us reclines seat for entire flight, it is almost impossible to get out to stretch legs or go to restroom. At the minimum, crew should ask all passengers to raise seats during meal service as a courtesy to those behind them. This is done on other airlines."

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Crew had amazing customer service with a badly serviced plane"
Cons: "Was on flight QR 743 Doha to Boston. The pilot landed as if it was an afterthought In good weather, it sounded as if the pilot used the computer to land. The crew worked with great pains within a difficult situation. The flight was delayed by an hour, full flight had dirty lavatories without water from the get go! One of the middle lavatories could not lock! This plane should have been better serviced by ground crew before it departed Doha! Infotainment system is confusing, keep it simple and add more up to date movies. Even then, I will still fly QR over all else."

Pros: "Wonderful services"
Cons: "Nothing bad to say"

Pros: "Pleasant crew"
Cons: "Crowded flight, late departure."

Pros: "On time, clean and joyful"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Food and price of ticket"

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Too much children ob the plain and they are crying"

Pros: "The stewardess were lovely."
Cons: "The refreshments"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I liked the cooperation of the crew."

Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Booked a window seat and luckily the middle seat wasn’t taken. I was able to fade in and out of sleep ... much needed!"
Cons: "Wish I could afford to upgrade for a proper sleep!"

Pros: "The ground staff at Gatwick was friendly, helpful and efficient."

Pros: "Could not fault the staff one iota. Incredibly attentive to their customers, graceful and supportive. The supervisor get a special mention as he helped me with eating my meals with a sleeping toddler and even held her for me while I spent a penny. I have never felt more cared for by a group of complete strangers in my life! Thank you. You literally saved my sanity!"
Cons: "Nothing to fault at all on this flight. Food was great, staff were hard working and magical unicorns."

Pros: "Service, food, beverages and entertainment are good with Emirates. Also boarding procedures are good."
Cons: "Seats in Emirates keep getting smaller"

Cons: "I didn't like my seat placement this time round. Was put in the seat infront of business class as no other option. Really uncomfortable."

Pros: "The individual were uniform polite and professional, even in the economy section of the craft which is not always the case in some airlines. Boarding and deplaning via two entry / access points; something all airlines should seek to do."
Cons: "Things like the plane layout which focuses on maximizing seating space over common space like toilets (not enough) and cross craft aisles so crew and passengers could do more than just one thing at a time; issues the crew had nothing to do with. Rather plane designers being pushed to maximize seats over all else."

Cons: "The crew was not friendly and very slow. I was flying with an infant and a child and have had excellent experiences on a number of other less expensive airlines and I am disappointed that I had bad service on Emirates business class."

Pros: "Excellence !!!"

Cons: "Flight was really hot ; i was almost suffocating. They kept the AC closed for an hour till the take off !! Wayer surved was hot ! Disappointing experience unfortunatly!!"

Pros: "The food this time was amazing...The time of boarding was good. No delays"
Cons: "The touch screens were hanging making it difficult to watch movies. Also they served a lot of booze to people and one of my neighbours vomited in arrival. It was a mess"

Pros: "crew food"
Cons: "i asked for a plus blanket, they did not provide me since the plane was full, though so many people were not using it and i felt cold; none help was provided"

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "1- Crew seemed less professional than European countries destinations ( An Egyptian crew gave me wrong direction about my seat at the entrance of the plane ) 2- Wifi service was not working, though they said the plane is equipped with WIFI ( i checked with the cabin crew, she said maybe the area..however throughout all the travel flight, there was no WIFI )"

Cons: "Seat a little uncomfortable even with mattress. Food not great."

Pros: "I loved the bigger screens and the fact that I could watch movies from the monument I boarded and did not have to wait until take off! I also loved the use of real cutlery in economy. The flight was fantastic. The toilets in economy are spacious too."
Cons: "The leg room could be a wee bit better. Then again, I was in economy."

Pros: "Every thing looks perfect, but since Emirates want to go one step further, then they should cosider the feet rest"

Pros: "The crew make Emirates great.....but the tools they have make the job easy."
Cons: "Found the seatbelt a little tight when sleeping, as it has to go over the blanket"

Pros: "Food nd entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding"

Cons: "Waiting for 4 hours for boarding due to silly mistake of agent for booking my ticket with wrong spelling & keep me on hold for hours & hours. will never recommend such site to others."

Pros: "They boarded us very fast."
Cons: "The food is same"

Pros: "Nothing! An old vintage 777 flown with bad entertainment systems. Remotes were not working properly. Screens were rebooted again and again. Very very old aircraft. Poor maintenance"
Cons: "Nothing! An old vintage 777 flown with bad entertainment systems. Remotes were not working properly. Screens were rebooted again and again. Very very old aircraft. Poor maintenance. An extremely poor show my emirates who call themselves a premier airline and this was a POOR SHOW!"

Cons: "Baggage collection slow still waiting"

Pros: "Great entertainment. Crew was calm and professional."
Cons: "Food was ok, but I've had a lot better on Emirates. Low carb options would make it amazing."

Pros: "Being able to sleep comfortably Great staff Food good rather than great but not easy on flight. Well chosen good wines. Chauffeur service to & from airport Ease of checkin"

Pros: "A380 Emirates get better every time"

Cons: "I have used Kayak many times but I am afraid I may not use it anymore. We booked tickets to India from Boston few months ago. We booked for Emirates. But we got the tickets issued through web jet. With the recent travel ban we wanted to reschedule our tickets. And then the whole problem unravelled. We called kayak to reschedule. Kayak team said its not their responsibility and forwarded me to Web jet. We called emirates directly but they said since we booked tickets via Web jet they will be able to help. So we called Web jet and they charged a hefty 250-300$ extra to what Emirates would have charged for difference in pay. They said its basically the processing fee. We were disappointed as the reason for postponing was not in our hands, and the fact that kayak passed the buck to Web jet in dealing with the issue. If we had bought our tickets directly from Emirates the process would have been very smooth."

Pros: "On time Excellent environment"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The Airbus was very good -as comfortable as possible in Economy."
Cons: "It was a little noisy in our seats (we were next to one of the crew areas). But the biggest gripe was about the way we were treated when queuing. We all expect to have to wait our turn but it's incredibly frustrating when 1) the system isn't fair (eg splitting a queue into two then allowing those behind you to go to the front of a new line) and 2) treating us like second class by drawing a curtain in front of our faces so Business class people don't have to see us when they disembark."

Pros: "Everything is wonderful"
Cons: "Tight Economy Class seats"

Pros: "Great entertainment options, crew is freindly and helpful. Early Check-in was easy, fast and convenient."
Cons: "Leg space, seat cushion needs to be more- it seems claustrophobic, timings for the flight- need some as a day time flight rather then being up all night, going through the channel of air bus to the flight...."

Cons: "i did not like the food"

Pros: "Everything was amazing."
Cons: "Nothing. Great flights"

Cons: "Us passengers are obviously an inconvenience to the crew"

Cons: "Some stewardesses were in a bad mood and responded badly to passengers"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Late boarding 20 mins"

Pros: "Nothing good to mention"
Cons: "Check in counter staff are more aggressive than their passenger. Dealing with the passenger/customer with respect and in a polite manner must be applied."

Pros: "The crew were good and attentive but I couldn't help but feel they were hopelessly understaffed."
Cons: "Despite the size of the A380 seats have been crammed in so that there is no real difference in comfort between travelling on one of them or in a low cost airline such as Jetstar. Unless of course you can afford First or Business Class."

Cons: "I didn't get food Jain veg. Please include it in your menue"

Pros: "good baby gifts"
Cons: "a bassinet brought for 40 minutes before landing. Forgot to feed. I had to demand a meal for me and the baby and toddler. In the cabin cold. With this flight crew the flight attendants did not like."

Pros: "Excellent"
Cons: "Excellent"

Pros: "Roomy and spacious A380 aircraft, cabin crew were very professional great food and beverages.....and the economy seat was really spacious and comfortable."

Pros: "I was upgraded to business class on the first leg to Dubai which was fantastic."
Cons: "The bar on the flight to Dubai wasn't stocked properly and so the barman couldn't make a number of drinks and then ran out of ingredients towards the end of the flight. He was a really nice guy though."

Pros: "London to Dubai crew"
Cons: "Chaotic boarding Lousy cold food Crew were appalling Dubai to Bangkok Business Class is indescribably uncomfortable. Seats no wider than economy and made of floppy polyester so no lumbar support. No built in massage either Upper deck A380 used to be First at front, Business class behind. Now it's economy at front Business Class down the back. You pay thousands extra to be held back while economy disembark."

Cons: "E"

Cons: "Very good experience in economy class. Complimentary meal. No hassle with carryon bags. Would definitely fly again."

Pros: "Was the crew amazing"

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The seat"

Pros: "The crew were amazing, beautiful flight and super landing"
Cons: "Keep it up"

Pros: "Great food, big bags of peanuts, great entertainment options with high quality earbuds provided."
Cons: "Standard legroom seats that move forward if you recline- meaning if you are tall you cannot recline"

Pros: "Crew on floor and boardind"
Cons: "Very hot in the plane"

Pros: "the crew were so friendly. the food was good."

Pros: "What we liked about this flight was, for such a short flight you get a meal. Staff on board were great also."
Cons: "Our grievance is with ground crew at BEY airport and AMM. 1 piece of lugagge was left in AMM though it was checked connecting from our previous flight. Upon arrival we were told they would contact us. After a long back and forth as we did not have a local number, they tried to dismiss us by saying someone would whatsapp us to let us know when the luggge has arrived. SPOILER ALERT: they never did. We insisted on finding out more and after being pressed they admitted they had received a note from AMM airport that the piece of luggage would arrive in the next flight (5 hours later). We returned later on and found we needed a special permit at BEY airport, only the person on the piece of luggage was allowed back in. Upon receiving the permit, staff continued to press for a name of who confirmed the luggage was there, we told them they had confirmed earlier. I was allowed inside and found the piece of luggage still on the belt though the flight had landed 3 hours earlier and the carousel was being used for another flight. Apparently they don’t bother to check or act on the messages until the end of the day. Finally, we had to argue to be compensated and received $30 USD for our troubles even though they should have offered this as standard practice."

Pros: "Food & service"
Cons: "Legs room Delay in departure without apology or explanation Duty free cabin crew didn’t come back to take my order"

Pros: "Always a pleasure to travel with MEA!!!"

Cons: "No special lane for business class"

Cons: "When u r listening to a movie and the crew speaks to the passengers the voice is extremely high. Very disturbing"

Cons: "Lights on No air Hard seats"

Pros: "The hospitality is very nice. new plane good food, good service , nice seats and warm blankets."

Pros: "Everything. Crew, Cockpit pilots, timing, comfort, food, All."
Cons: "Nothing to report."

Pros: "The boarding was fast and good."
Cons: "The amount of time you are forced into watching ads. The smelly passengers The airplane wasn't clean!"

Pros: "Boarding. Hostesses greetings and attitude"
Cons: "1- Seat Cushions are all used up and have become uncomfortable to sit on. 2- Safety video was thought to be a limited time promotion, yet has seemingly replaced hostesses safety instructions role and has become over-used and abnoxious to listen to each time. 3- food variety is low and choices of entertainment is limited compared to the price being paid. 4- over the last few years of travelling with MEA, the RUH- BEY trajectory has flown on time a handful of instances. Though it might be the most expensive usd/mile flown. not sure what mea's problem is."

Cons: "Boarding time was late."

Cons: "Upon arriving to the airport I was informed that they had cancelled the booking for no reason. I had to buy a new ticket at the airport for double the price. Now I am concerned about my credit card information being on such an insecure website."

Pros: "Staff were so nice"
Cons: "Food is so so"

Pros: "good service"
Cons: "plane was very late"

Cons: "more than one hour delay, is too much and i went out of schedule because of this unexpected and not announced delay??!! which i don't know why it wasn't announced."

Cons: "Everything Delay in departure No earphones No pillows"

Pros: "I like the airline and the crew generally. They are very professional and try to be as efficient as.possible with is"
Cons: "All the food they offer has fish or meat in it. Even the salad. I understand that a vegetarian option should be requested in advance but those often end up being steamed vegetables. I am fine skipping the main course but can the food around including the salad not have fish in it."

Pros: "I like the new plane and its cleanliness, the professional take off and landing, the friendly welcoming and the helpful crew. There was no food due to the short time of the trip, however, a juice box was offered and other on call request were fulfilled."
Cons: "The delay in boarding and departure is not a respectable or a pleasant issue, irrelevant of any cause."

Pros: "Loved the uniforms of the flight crew. Classic. Vintage and professional and the staff embodied their uniforms."
Cons: "The seats were a bit to close and made me feel crowed."

Pros: "I was flying from dubai to Beirut. On the 27th on January. There was heavy traffic on Mohammad bin zayed road. The traffic was literally closed. I went ahead of 4 hours. Got stuck. Reached 20 mns late. The gate was closed. There was no one in the office. I had to sit and wait for zero outcomes. I had to book another flight"

Pros: "I was surprised on my short hour long flight that they still served a food tray. Sandwiches were OK, also included a pudding cup, a juice box and a water cup, more than expected and pleasantly surprised."
Cons: "Even after online check in I could not enter through security until I checked into the airport counter, streamlining that process would be more appropriate, especially if you arrive at the airport an hour before the counter opens."

Pros: "The flight was very comfortable , taking off and landing were Excellent , didnt feel at all any bumping againt runway"
Cons: "Cant say much that i didnt like it but there was a chewing gum left on the duty free guide book was left there and Passed unnoticed by cleaning staff"

Cons: "Hosteses were not friendly"

Cons: "No entertainment"

Pros: "The flight was on time."

Pros: "Good evening, this is Sarah Al-Makhlouf. I booked a ticket from your website, but it happened to me a great deal. My ticket was from Riyadh to Bahrain, but when I went to the airport, I could not get on the plane, and the reason was that the flight was going to Dubai, not to Bahrain. Is there any solution to this issue, And where is my money? I will send you the ticket in the e-mail, and at the airport they said that it is not strange on your site that the traveler falls into this problem, how can you sell tickets to a particular destination without making sure, who bears the responsibility now?"
Cons: "Good evening, this is Sarah Al-Makhlouf. I booked a ticket from your website, but it happened to me a great deal.

Cons: "Pillows for everyone and warmer temperature"

Pros: "Loaded passengers quickly with so many issues at the airport"
Cons: "No thought to seating and how they change and scatter families in different places not too far from each other. Plus seats were confirmed."

Cons: "Was a good experience"

Pros: "On the 15th. Nov during my flight to India, I have made an online check in though did not receive an e ticket. I arrived the airport 70 min before the flight. The crew on the check in counter refused to issue me a ticket and insisted that I have missed my plane abd I need to purchase a new ticket. They even refused to check if I have made an online chick in. The gulf air online system, did not show me that I have made an online checkin. Unfortunately, the problem was solved by asking someone who work in the airport ( not gulf airlines representative) to check if I have made and online check in and to issue me a ticket to pass through the security control"

Pros: "I' not sure which flight this relates to. I've taken economy and business class and clearly the business class is better but economy is fine. The crew were good in both classes and whilst the food in business was better I didn't have a problem in economy either."
Cons: "Check in was fine and very friendly but boarding could be better particularly in business. At Heathrow it was a bit chaotic as all classes seemed to be mixed up so it was difficult for priority passengers such as disabled to get through everyone crowded up to the desks and the same applied for business class as well. The IFE wasn't too bad but it could be better. Bahrain airport is a mess and the boarding gates seem to be more like corridors with seats in them so it's difficult again when they call for business class passengers as unless you are already at the front you have to try to work your way through. I believe the airport is being rebuilt. If so then things will probably improve. I'm not sure why there needs to be 2 security checks within a few yards of each other when transiting between flights. they don't have this problem in Doha."

Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Everything worked well, the boarding, on time flight, flight was smooth and landed 15 mins before time."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Economy sets are too tight and cramped. Cup holder was good for nothing, i tried to put my soft drink bottle in it and it slipped right out the bottom and when I tried to put a cup of water in it supplied by the crew it wouldn't fit! When I reclined my seat to sleep the passenger behind me pushed my seat hard back to upright position. When I turned around to ask why the rude response I realized that he was a tall fellow and his knees were already touching the back of my seat so when I reclined it, it hurt him and he had no where to move his legs. I couldn't do or say much as I understood his misery and therefore kept my seat up the whole way for 5 hours! The flight was full and neither of us could relocate to another seat."

Pros: "Wheel chair service was excellent"
Cons: "I wish gulf air start to put movie like others competitors airline instead of blocking it."

Pros: "Seat was not comfortable TV and the hand set was not used friendly Scrambled eggs on the breakfast was really not good ...., sorry !!! Finally the smell of the J class area was bad Like old shoes smell !!!!! Sorry to say that but it was like that Next time please take care of this"

I ordered the Seafood and it had 3 overcooked shrimp and baked fish. Not tasty at all. The bread was hard as a rock! 3. Boarding was like a cattle call!! Kind of like Southwest Airlines! 4. The Takeoff, Cruise and Landing was NOT bad at all! 5. I guess being an American, it was FOOLISH of me to ask for Ginger Ale on this Egyptian Flight!! 6. When I landed in Cairo, it would have been helpful to know that while going through Customs, I would need to purchase a Egypt Entry Visa fee for $25.00, but since I didn't know that, I waited in line for 20 minutes ONLY to have the Customs agent tell me that I had to go purchase one, then get back I line for ANOTHER 20 minutes!!!!!!! UGGHHHHHH!! 7. I flew on an Airbus that didn't have plug in for your phones to charge (maybe that's just a Boeing thing)."

Cons: "Passenger seating next to me (I was sitting in an aisle on a 3-seat row, economy plus) kept on leaning towards me all the time. I had to "create" of sort of barrier between the two of us with a couple of pillows. A lady sitting in the row in front of me - a 50-something y/o woman with husband and 3 kids keep on reclining her seat to the point that I was barely a couple of inches from the top of her head, even as I was eating. I had to forcefully push back ti get some room."

Pros: "Flight wasn't packed. Reasonable room for carryons. Seat next to me was open, though most seats were full."
Cons: "There was a late gate change in Cairo, which was not communicated to the new gate personnel. They were not ready to receive, there was no female screener which required a delay for the ladies to enter the gate area, and the plane was late leaving. Not a crisis, but was entirely avoidable. Also, I suggest avoiding long layovers in the Cairo airport. There are few chairs outside the eating areas."

Pros: "Crew whas nice"

Pros: "Was very smoth"
