Pros: "Flights were on time and boarding was orderly"
Cons: "Vegetarian food was poor. It was just boiled vegetables. Even the bread that was given to others was not there.

Movie selection on the entertainment system was mediocre, with limited variety of films in general and especially limited variety in languages other than English and Arabic.

I hope this is fixed promptly."

Cons: "Check in counter was overcrowded and slow moving"
Cons: "We lost an item and while we are in airport waiting for next flight even though we know it would have got recovered by airport staff there is no way of getting it back unless we download a form online , print , fill the form and sign , scan and send it in email to lost and found team. This is unlikely and complex process for anyone while in airport to get access to print, scan etc. we wish this was more simpler process Cabin was too cold and staff deny bluntly to make any adjustment saying some other set of passengers complained that cabin is warm.. I have not seen anyone who could sit around with out blanket on them and we had to get double blankets and wrap ourselves in there"
Cons: "Smaller leg room than other airlines"
Pros: "Entertainment and staff help"

Pros: "I have always loved service of Etihad airways. The food was awesome. The staff was friendly and courteous. Seats were comfortable. Surely enjoyed every bit of it."
Cons: "They wouldn't print my boarding pass in time for me to make it back. The transfer desk at Kuwait airport is inefficient and I missed my flight home. I could not get a flight home without buying another flight. They refused to put me on the next flight out without me purchasing it. I will never fly them again. Now they don't want to reimburse me for my flight I missed without an $800 penalty. Ridiculous!"

Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Everyone kept saying, sorry for the delay, sorry for this,etc."
Pros: "the crew of the airline and the staff at Abu Dhabi airport were overwhelmingly friendly and thoughtful and helpful. I am an oversize person which can make flying difficult in many ways. first, they never made me feel like I was inconviencing them by asking for help and then 2nd, when one of my neighbors decided to make a big fuss about it, they asked me if I'd like to move to a better seat (which I was happy to take them up on). I had a long layover and was given meal tickets to get food at the food court in the airport. Everyone was very kind."
Cons: "the boarding procedure was difficult at Abu Dhabi. We had to go up a staircase which felt insecure and didn't have a good railing to hold onto. I was not the only passenger who was having trouble."
Pros: "Punctuality, space, tv monitors in each seat and nice service"
Cons: "The flight is a 777 or 787. This is the flight has cramped up legroom in economy. It's a 17 hour flight and the aircraft is not comfortable at all in economy. The food is a hot or a miss. They have 3 items on the menu but chances are by the time they get to you they run out of the non veg options and you are stuck eating dal and pulav. Flight attendants on the flight were okay, not super helpful if you are traveling in economy"
Pros: "abu dubai airport transit area"
Cons: "nothing bad that i could found"
Cons: "Food was not good. A meals was served only 12 hrs apart. There are jnternational travellers who feel hungry in between and airlin needs to be considerate of it."
Pros: "The food. The charging spots and latest movies."
Pros: "Travel bag (with toothpaste, socks, etc) was given."
Cons: "2. Food choices from Abu Dhabi to Bangkok was Szechwan (spicy chicken), Indian (fish), or vegetarian pasta; no international or Thai food. 2. Entertainment was stopped 30 minutes before arrival."
Pros: "I wanted to cancel my flight ticket 2/3 days after buying it. I called vayama and they told me that it can't be canceled. I asked to reschedule the booking instead and they told me that rescheduling will cost me more than the price of the original ticket! Now I lost the money I paid! I will stop booking my flights through kayak going forward. I am not happy with the service and the policies do not make any sense. This was a waste. I am very disappointed. I had a serious personal reason to not to fly and nothing was taken in to consideration. I will pass this to all people I know."
Pros: "The service was great."
Cons: "The food was not up to the standard"
Cons: "Can improve quality of pure Veg food and give them more option so that they can travel conveniently"
Pros: "I've flown more than 9 different airways on international flights; Etihad has probably the best economy seats and in flight entertainment with large movie collection."
Cons: "Etihad overbooked me along with more than a dozen other passengers on a 14-hour international flight. Apparently Etihad decides on who gets left behind. Etihad's "Transit Travelers" service is one of the WORST customer service desks I've ever been to. I waited in line for 2 hours. Passengers were urging to be served so they can make it to their connecting flights not knowing they have been already selected not to board those plains. Voices were raised and demands were made to speak to the supervisor. It was chaos. I made it to the agent shortly after the gate to my flight had opened. I was shocked by how the agent lacked empathy when he informed me I won't make it to the connecting flight because it had been overbooked. Not an apology or even sir! I was forced to be rerouted which stretches my 25-hour trip to 33 hours. Then the connecting flight gets delayed more than an hour resulting in missing the second connecting flight. Now my trip has become a 41-hour trip, I missed a day of work that's worth more than double the value of the voucher Etihad gave me and lost one day of unscheduled vacation. Etihad even damages my bag that had servived more than 10 flights. I will never fly Etihad and strongly recommend against flying with Etihad."
Pros: "Lots of legroom!"
"الركوب للطائرة كان سهلا، قدموا لنا اختيارين من الشطائر وقت الغداء، دجاج أو فلافل، لا يوجد شاشات للترفيه أمام كل راكب.👎 Easy boarding, they present two choices of sandwich at lunch time, chichen or falafel, there wasn't a screen ahead of every passenger. 👎"

Pros: "The seats on the plane are fairly comfortable and the meals provided are good. Vanity kits handed out were good too"
Cons: "It starts off with a chaotic luggage check in. No order, the staff take breaks on a whim and leave long queues of passengers waiting to check in their bags. The cabin crew looked rather annoyed at us boarding the plane and didn't bother to smile or greet as we came on board. Since the flight was at 1:30am, we fell asleep almost immediately however the cabin crew woke us up by vigorously shaking my shoulder to ask if we wanted food. The vanity kits were just thrown onto our laps while we slept. The on board entertainment system did not work on the entire plane for the duration of the flight."
Pros: "I don’t like it at all no buddy what to do he’s work I missed this flight coz of the security I passed 2 of them and in the third one I hade liquor from the duty-free so they don’t wanna put my hand back to the cargo"

Pros: "Very strict to their timing, huge difference from before."
Pros: "Positive and helpful crew. A few new movies recently released kept me entertained."

Pros: "Aicraft was decent"
Cons: "They downt know what customer service is all about!"
Pros: "Crew were great, seats were comfy. There eere less than 25 on an over 200 seat flight."
Cons: "The Airport was horrible, like from late 60's of last century in a 3rd world rural terminal !!! They did not offer me an upgrade, even though it was a very empty flight with lots of empty seats in the Business class section !!!!! Horrible..."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful. Nice clean plane."
Cons: "Airport in Jeddah is not good. Bathrooms are way below standard."
Pros: "Arrived in one piece."
Cons: "Dirty plane outside. No in flight entertainment. Saudi flights always delayed in my experience so boarding at takeof time. Crew did nothing above minimum. Jeddah airport old."
Pros: "Going through 3 security checks was cumbersome and gate information was incorrect otherwise great service."
Pros: "Very bad flight , didn’t like the plane, toilets were not cleaned , not much assisted and poor handling by the crew Sine most of the people were coughing, I felt like I was sitting in the hospital"
Cons: "I didn’t like the plane most of things were not cleaned and my headphones were broken the crew was not welcoming Pathetic service This was my first ever flight from Saudi airlines but I am very disappointed so next time will go on emirates"
Cons: "I purchased a window seat in the exit aisle from the airline when booking. The airline seated me in a regular aisle seat without legroom."
Pros: "That I’m getting home"
Cons: "Everything- airport plane food"
Pros: "I liked that there was an area for praying on flight. Also, I liked the food."
Cons: "My trip had two flights. The first one, from IAD to JED was the problematic one for me. I purchased the highest Internet package to finish some work on the flight. The service was terrible. I purchased 300MB for $25. I barely used less than 60MB in several hours of work because of terrible connection. Yet, when I complained to Saudia customer service, they insisted that there was no technical issue, refused to give me a refund, and did not even apologize. The transit in Jeddah's airport was terrible. The bathrooms are very dirty and smelly. In the return flight, we had an overnight stay in the airport. People typically need to sleep at this time. However, the airport was very crowded and, for so many people, there was not even enough seats to sit down."
Pros: "I do not recommend anyone to use it."
Cons: "Airlines Airport Employees are unprofessional, rude and untrained. Some passengers were allowed inside the plane to place their own bare feet on the plan walls, others slept on the floor!! Never saw anything like that...Saudis passengers hygiene were awful, smelly feet and strong body odour!!"
Cons: "The e-Ticket wasn’t bought. I had to stay at the airport for 2 hours and finally no ticket was issued. Very disappointed. It’s my last experience with you."
Cons: "The saudia app is not functioning well . It gives me massage saying my resrevation did notgo throw then i get an email withh sadad # which dose not work. Then i uesed the desk top site to do the resrevation"
Pros: "Everything!!! Esp the lovely friendly helpful kind flight attendant ladies. Food was fantastic n restaurant quality!!!"
Cons: "The hostesses in the my cabin (our seats were row 55) were extremely cery rude. One of the aged one litteraly acted like she was my mother in the sense of bossing around. They were not attentive to when people called them and they were really very rude to almost everyone that asked them for help. I had a 3 yr old who got tired of sitting so i took him around and took him to prayer area when no one else was there, and they came in telling us that it was not safe and i told them that he just wanted to walk around and we just got here iw will go in 2 mins and they were like no sorry its not safe, something with ocygen and everything and i was like if i pray here then it wudnt be dangerous? And they were like ur baby wont be here. Why in the world will my baby stay at his seat when his mother is away. And then I was really sick that day which is why i was drinking alot of tea that i do not even like, i was only drinking it bez it was hot and they were giving me attitude giving the tea. Also one time they did not have the tea so i asked them to give me hot water and one of them said u have to wait 5 mins when we start serving and at that time i really thought she just did not wanna give it yo me because they were just being mean. I did not know tht genuinly they were refreshing everything, so one of them brought me boiling hot water and then cane 5 mine later with food and taunted me that you did not finish your water. For heavens sake I was not gonna drink boiling hot water, i was waiting for it to get to the level ehetr i cud drink it. Overall extremely very disappointed"
Pros: "Good food n movies, comfy seats"
Cons: "Rough bumpy flight with no xplanations or apologies from crew n interval btw connecting flights too short"
Pros: "Newer Planes - comfortable seats"
Cons: "No understanding of nuts and associated nut allergies - especially life threatening ones. 1. Pistachios left in seat pockets (my daughter has life threatening allergies from pistachio) - we explained to the stewardesses and the pilot came to - his answer was "SO WHAT" 2. Brownies served as dessert have traces of peanuts (my son has life threatening peanut allergies) 3. Dates served with nuts"
Pros: "Food, cabin crew are very good"
Cons: "Transit in Jeddah..The airport is not organized and the staff too."
Pros: "Too upset to remember."
Cons: "The airport only announced a 1 hour delay (instead of 5:10 pm it was posted at 6:10 pm) but the truth that we departed at 9:20 pm. At the end I lost a bag from my 3 piece luggage that they have charged me for the extra piece at a frustrating $302 USD :("
Cons: "Dear I try to cancal my flight I contect saudi airline they can't cancal it I try online no cancaltion I try with KLM on 24 they reply me on 25 .... I send you Email no reply ..... Or can't go through ...."
Cons: "My flight was changed to a 10 hour layover in Jeddah after a night flight. The transfer waiting area is too small and there is not even wifi in the whole airport. I got food poisoning the day after my flight too! There was no personal entertainment available on my second flight."
Cons: "Food and Jedah Airport"
Pros: "It was much better than the Washington flight"
Cons: "Bad smell. Broken elements"
Cons: "No head phones"
Pros: "Staff were friendly, aircraft were clean and comfortable, with the entertainment being as entertaining as it should be. Food was decent and baggage policy is nice and generous. Seats are comfortable with great legroom, and good width and pitch."
Cons: "Transiting at Jeddah (South terminal) on economy class is an AWFUL experience, I wouldn't wish it on anybody. It's just a small block with 6 or 8 gates inside it which is much too small for the amount of people who wait for those flights. It's really difficult to find anywhere to sit and there's no paid lounge in the South terminal. Facilities are very poor with no WiFi and filthy bathrooms. What's more, all parking positions at Jeddah are currently remote gates, so everybody is bussed to the planes. Hopefully this will all change, at least to some degree, when the rebuilt airport opens."
Pros: "Nothing. I would never fly Saudia again and will tell my friends and family not go via saudia. This is my worst airline experience ever. Choosing saudia was a worst decision."
Cons: "The food was bad. The FA did not meet service expectations. You left all my luggages in Jeddah and when i asked help you promise to deliver it to my home before 12midnight. I am so tired and sleepy but i waited until 11pm cz i need my stuff and i have very important medicines there that i need to take tonight. When i called to check the location of my delivery, the driver just plainly said he will deliver tomorrow. I found this very unprofessional and no care about their customers. You gave your commitment to me to deliver before 12midnight, twice. 3 times including the airport personnel. I expected it tonight. Now u just change your mind and tell me you will deliver it tomorrow? I am working in a different city tomorrow morning and i travel via bus. It is an extreme inconvenience cz i will not be at home when u deliver and no one is left at my flat. Worst airline experience ever. I regret flying with Saudia. This is my first and last. Please just send my luggage urgent. Thank you."
Cons: "The wait times at the airport were atrocious! Every single checkpoint took more than 25-30 mins to clear. Staff needs to be better trained to handle international passengers. Bilingualism should be implemented or provided to better assist guests that cannot speak Arabic. The final stretch that tested my patience to the max was the last security check before boarding the plane. We were waiting in line to be cleared for boarding for more than 1.5 hrs! Our flight was delayed, the food was served late, it was over heated...in short, everything went downhill from there. Needless to say, will not be flying Saudi Airlines again! I'd rather deal with layovers than poor customer service."
Cons: "The connection was in a different terminal and there was not enough time as the air europa was late and we had to deplane far and had to shuttle to the terminal"
Cons: "Mmmm.. let me see....perhaps ...well I can't think of anything..sry"
Pros: "Easy booking and quick confirmation"
Cons: "Pre seat reservation which left us with no choice of changing seats"
Pros: "No information given about the 90' delay"
Pros: "Decent entertainment options, albeit severely censored."
Cons: "When we got to our seats, we discovered the armrests would not lift between my husband and me. This was only the case for our row and one other. We asked the attendants to be reseated, and they shrugged. My husband found the back row was empty and moved there because the sympathetic attendants on our flight from D.C. to Jeddah offered us that row when the same thing happened on that flight. Just before takeoff, the crew on this flight insisted that my husband could not sit there because it was urgently needed for the crew only and made him return to the row with unmovable armrests. They said nothing to the two Arab men who were not crew but occupied the same last "for crew only" row on the opposite side of the aircraft, which makes me wonder if my husband didn't get a pass because he's black. For entire the duration of the nearly 13 hour flight, the only thing that sat in the row the crew so desperately needed was one of the crew members' bag, which easily could have been place in an overhead bin to allow us to sit there (as the kind Saudia attendants on our prior flight had done to ensure our comfort)."
Pros: "staff were friendly."
Cons: "my flight was cancelled without letting me know the reason, although they offered me another flight (two hours later) but still clear reason should be mentioned. also seat was broken."
Pros: "Amazing crew,spacious seating and great service."
Pros: "Today is the third day and my baggage is not received."
Cons: "Vistara Airline ground staff is unable to resolve my baggage claim problem in three days."
Cons: "Charged me 330$ for 1 baggage I don’t know for what and supervisor very rude."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Overhead space too limited, grumpy staff, bad food options"
Pros: "Checkin and crew were super helpful"
Cons: "Entertainment options"
Pros: "I don’t know but plan looks a little bit big we had it more room. Crew was very nice even they can’t speak urdu Pakistani. But over all it was good. Thanks"
Cons: "If you can try to hire atleast 1 bilingual person who can speak their local languages, like urdu pakistani hindi or any other language."
Pros: "the flight was pleasant and the airport terminal was empty. Pure joy."
Cons: "The food ahould be better"
Pros: "I did not realize the flight was a Fly Dubai plane until I got to the airport. I intentionally bought Emirates Airline ticket so that I did not have to go Fly Dubai. Fly Dubai just plain sucks."
Cons: "Make it clear this is a Fly Dubai flight and not Emirates. I feel deceived and cheated."
Cons: "FlyDubai has really uncomfortable seats!"
Pros: "Was given a vegan sandwich, told crew member I didn't want it, wasn't offered another type."
Cons: "Cramped, after paying for onboard wifi they didn't start it until in the air, and shut it off before landing.. it took time to taxi, and get off the plane and I couldn't make calls or contact ppl. TV monitor didn't work"
Cons: "This one has multiple problems: 1. First no one clearly tells you where to go for FlyDubai flight and you really have to fight your way to get this information. 2. Then when you know that you have to go to terminal 2 for this flight, it takes them minimum 45 minutes to transport you from emirates terminal to terminal 2. 3. FlyDubai staff in general is less courteous and cooperative than emirates. 3. T2 is minimally maintained terminal with even basic amenities missing in some parts of terminal. 4. It also feels less secure."
Cons: "Many people on board were watching videos on their mobile phones without headphones. It was really annoying and hard to sleep."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "The plane was very old with no padding in the seats. You could feel the back of the seat grinding into your back. Everything, including water, had a price tag, unless your flight originated from an international previous flight. During the four hour flight there was no entertainment available, wi fi was expensive, and flight attendants were practically non existent. Water......, a plain bottle of water, cost $2.00! I had to beg for a paltry cup of water that supposedly came with my flight. Fly Dubai is nothing near the service and reputation of Emerites. Other connecting airlines to Nepal are much better."
Pros: "Staff was great. Smooth flight"

Cons: "Very bad service with fly Dubai. No disclosure at time of booking that had to pay extra for in flight entertainment & meals. Staff did not provide blankets when asked.

Pros: "Nothing to mention here."
Cons: "I booked my flight with Emirates and their flights were good, food and crew was awesome. But I got surprised when flying back from Delhi, ground staff told me to board with Fly Dubai instead of Emirates. Why I wasn't got notified while booking the flight that there will be multiple airlines flight?"
Cons: "It took too long to board"
Cons: "The price and the service"
Pros: "Nothing. Zero."
Cons: "We stood on a bus for 15+ minutes waiting to board. We boarded, crowded plane with small space, and now my luggage is lost. I paid a lot of money for my business class ticket on Emirates only to have a second flight that was terrible in every way. No one seems to care where my bag may be- I am trekking in 2 days and I have NOTHING to use!! I’ve called every number I can find and emailed fly dubai- each person had shown very little care and not one person can even tell me if my bag left Dallas. Unreal."

Pros: "i liked the fact that you showed my destination along the way!!"

Pros: "The crew is incredibly professional and you do feel bad for them."
Cons: "It's the other passengers that are the problem (and that's consistent). The cabin stinks (due to the passengers), they generally don't listen to crew instructions, and it's the only place that every time you land there is someone who is standing up immediately after touchdown and the crew is yelling at them."
Cons: "They did not give us food or drink, , They were selling everything even water."
Pros: "offers transit areas"
Cons: "not comfortable ..time-chairs. 1- chairs- hard and tight . 2- time-late always. not on the time like we are comming in 2 houers before debarture and waiting 2 or 3 houers more gust to inter the air plain.and take off.exp time to flay 1 .writen in the ticket take of effectlvely at 2 or 3 .this is haben to me in the last time i flay with this air line. 3- entrance suddenly changed. exp wrtin 11 in the ticket chang to 3 in the air port. and this openion for most people who tray flay d. thanks for your attention."
Pros: "On Time Arrival although we experienced a late departure"

Pros: "I got to my destination safely and on time"
Cons: "No air conditioning made for a very warm flight, no drinks or food, no entertainment"

Pros: "Amazing service and crew"
Pros: "Inexpensive, but you get what you pay for."
Cons: "Seats are almost laughably small, both in pitch and width. The plane was very hot during boarding as they use both doors and the wind blows through the entire cabin."

Pros: "Comfort, professionalism, food"
Cons: "While passengers were clearly notified about new lap top/ tablet ban, many passengers appeared to disregard and still showed up with these items as carry on in Dubai? All the boxing and shrink wrapping apparently caused a 1.5 hour boarding delay, which isn"t fair to those who follow instructions. Even the pilot blamed American government? Why can"t people listen.? This rule was well publicized in media."
Pros: "Flight attendants are so cheerful and helpful. Economy class is like business junior on every other airline."
Cons: "50 minutes delay as always!"
Cons: "Arrived 40 min before flight and was denied access. Lost my first plane."
