Flight was delayed. Drink was only offered during meal. Would have been nicer if crew walk around to offer drink after take off or in between meals.
I booked this through Travelgenio and requested a cancellation due to COVID related impact. Their customer service was absolutely terrible and they informed me after the flight had departed that they could not cancel my ticket. Worst experience, will never use them again. Strongly reconsidering using Kayak in future given how poor the travelgenio experience has been.
Pros: "Can i request for a food that us not pork? I don't eat pork nor shrimp, i will be traveling on the 5th of January again and i don't want that we will be starving again for the second time since last time we never eat for they don't have anything substitute for pork. Hope they will serve some chicken or beef for not everyone will eat pork and to starve while on the plane is not acceptable for we paid for it. Thanks"
Cons: "Chose emergency exit on Cathay 777-300. Terrible.. was squished like a sardine! And I was in window seat... was not even able to eat! Worst economy class I have been in years!!! Never again...."
Pros: "crews were nice"
Cons: "Very crowded flight. Fully book. Super busy bathroom. Food was bad"
Pros: "The entertainment was good."
Cons: "Once the crew got the meals out of the way you didn't see them (at least in our section). You could go to the galley for water or a snack etc. Most airlines I've been on seem to bring drinks, etc to seats every once in a while."
Pros: "Seat worked as designed Got some sleep Crew was helpful"
Cons: "Better selection of movies; too much violence, foul language, sex and nudity - a better reflection of the food life."
Cons: "Extremely poor entertainment system - mostly old movies. No Bollywood movies"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Flight delayed and then cancelled NO COMMUNICATION WHATSOEVER as to what was going on. We finally got rebooked in another flight on a Chinese airline at 2:30am so we had to stay at jfk for a total of about 24 hours with no compensation for our time and troubles. Horrible. Experience!"
Pros: "I paid $190 for extra legroom for an economy seat by an exit door, however the remote for the entertainment screen encroached an inch on the already VERY narrow seats - I'm six foot three and 215 pounds and both hips were in full pressing contact against the sides of the seat - TOO NARROW!"
Cons: "Seats too narrow in Economy."
Severely delayed with no notice. Could have arrived at the airport hours later had we been informed of the delay
Once the boarding sign went on and all passengers gathered in line, we were left waiting standing up for almost an hour because there was a delay.
It would be nice to have vegan options for meals. The entertainment was not working on the the way to Austria. It was only available near the end of flight to Canada. The service was excellent.
The business class layout on this plane is tightly packed and atrocious with no sense of privacy.
Flight was meant to leave at 8:30pm but there was a 2 hour delay 😞
Pros: "I didn’t like anything"
Cons: "The female FA gave me an attitude when I asked about moving to a window seat"
Pros: "From checkin to luggage collection - the flight was easy and without hassle. We left slightly later than scheduled but arrived slightly earlier than scheduled. Staff from check in to those onboard we polite and professional. The aircraft was clean, bright and appeared in good order."
Cons: "Luggage collection took a little while longer than I would have expected - only a minor point, nothing to change airlines for."
Cons: "Both times into Rome we had to wait on the tarmac for stairs. Either get more stairs or book fewer flights. The planes get hot in July while you wait endlessly on stairs."
Pros: "Pleasant crew. Clean plane."
Cons: "Leaving on time (we were an hour late because of a discrepancy between number of passengers checked and number on board.) Would be nice to have at least a complimentary bottle of water."
Pros: "Fare itself is very reasonable for distance."
Cons: "Baggage fees are ridiculous! I paid double the cost of the actual flight for my checked bag. Have never had this happen in 25 years of travel. Is Air Malta becoming Ryan Air?? Staff couldn’t seem to get food service down. Constant running up and down aisle trying to sort out and sandwiches. Trying to nap on aisle seat with constant shouting was impossible. Seatbelt sign also sounds alarm constantly."
My good choice had gone almost instantly. Obviously badly underestimated.
Pros: "The entertainkeb5 was"
Cons: "As someone who is 6 feet tall, I was ridiculously uncomfortable the entire flight. My knees were pressed against the seat in front of me, and when the woman in front of me reclined, I couldn't even unfold the tray due to a lack of space. I was very unhappy,"
Pros: "it was and, it was as well"
Cons: "nothing flying wise, but airport is kind of a maze, if is any short connecting flight and late arrival, you have to run fast."
Pros: "Easy boarding."
Cons: "British Airways is the only airline I’ve flown that doesn’t off free water."
Cons: "The plane was old and literally falling apart. Tray tables were disconnecting. Worst part: The flight was delayed for some baggage mixup. Then they did nothing proactively to help passengers with tight connections that were only tight bc the flight was so late."
Pros: "A quiet flight. Low season and with a BA flight to the same destination10 minutes before our one departed, this resulted in a near empty plane. Perfect."
Cons: "I have to say, the coffee on offer is disgusting. I would certainly look in to changing that."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and professional, food was quite good as far as airlines go, chicken korma not bad at all."
Cons: "The premium economy seats are hard, and you really notice that on a long-haul flight. It was at least spacious and offered a reasonable degree of recline. WiFi was expensive and unreliable."
Cons: "Crew were all over the place (at Club Europe Cabin) and very unorganised. We went to galley few times to ask them to bring us drinks even thou they have taken our orders. They need more training to be at Club Europe Cabin. The seats should be more comfortable and should give people more leg rooms."
Pros: "Crew very pleasant, professional and friendly."
Cons: "Tired and dated cabin; seats extremely uncomfortable causing severe back pain. In flight entertainment very old fashioned with small low resolution screens."
Cons: "How they kept us in the plane for 4 hours and accomodated the people these passengers while others with international transfers missed our flights"
Cons: "Delayed flight, once on board the aircraft, further delays on the ground (at Glasgow) made up time in the air landed (not too far from our original landing time) only to be told we’re now being held on the ground (at Gatwick for at least another 20 minutes!) I flew with BA this morning and rated them excellent for everything! EJ you need to up your game!"
Pros: "There were major challenges on the day. 1. The French Air traffic officers were on strike. 2. A passenger became ill after boarding and had to be disembarked along with his luggage which had previously been loaded, 3. Another passenger became ill requiring paramedic attention while we waited for a lengthy period before getting permission to take off. All these contributed to delays for which the airline and crew had no responsibility. They did their best to keep us informed of progress but once we took off, much of the lost time was recovered in the air. The flight itself was fairly smooth and uneventful. Thank God."
Pros: "Being able to check in quickly and weigh and tag my own luggage."
Cons: "Took too long to board the plane. Didn’t like that the only persons picked on for hand luggage was a husband and wife in there mid 70’s. But eventually they were allowed to bring on their hand luggage."
Pros: "Very clean and comfortable cabin."
Cons: "The baggage policy was a bit unclear as to what those with the base fare could bring. We ended up having to cram a backpack into the carry-on bag to bring it aboard. We had to check one bag when we checked-in. It cost about 52 euros."
Cons: "5 hour of delay!!!! For the second time in the same flight"
Pros: "Nothing, the most horrible airline with rude crew and unpredictable."
Cons: "At least be courteaous when your flight is delayed 3 hours"
Pros: "This flight was very disappointing. We paid extra for extra leg room seats only to get told we couldn’t have ANYTHING with us in our seats, not even a sweater. We had to put all of our items in the overhead bins, including small purses. Staff was not friendly."
Cons: "Friendlier staff. Lots of stairs to get to and on plane. We had an elderly person that did have a hard time. Explain certain seats don’t allow any items other than the actual person. I had fragile items and had to store in above bins to be banged around. Luckily this was a short flight."
Pros: "Efficient. Great crew. Left a bit late but the captain made up the time and we arrived a few minutes early."
Cons: "Assisted boarding a bit sloppy"
Pros: "Crew was very kind and professional."
Cons: "The carry-on rule was a bit absurd. After being asked to combine two backpacks into one, I was informed they had reached carry-on capacity and needed to check my bag thru to Gatwick."
Pros: "Professional crew"
Cons: "2-hour delay due to "crew welfare issues" Even after a 2-hour delay, they let more cabin baggage on board than was possible to stow in the lockers, resulting in rather chaotic scenes around transfer of baggage to the hold, and adding toi delay.. Entirely avoidable"
Pros: "the price"
Cons: "The members at the checkin desk did not speak english well and would not do a required visa check that the website said needed to be done to validate our boarding passes."
Cons: "Food was poor, particularly the croque monsieur, which was dry and tasteless."
Pros: "On time - From Southend"
Cons: "The extra charges at EVERY turn on a hellish web site that makes you never fly again"
Cons: "The airline only allows online checkin and didn’t notify us through emails until a few days before the flight when we’re already traveling. During international travel, we don’t check emails. We ended up paying almost $200 to checking at the airport. will not use this airline again."
Pros: "Ease of boarding with priority."
Cons: "Long wait to board, stairs up and down for tarmac stairs to plane and off of plane."
Pros: "Keeps to schedule. A high performing low cost airline."
Cons: "Cost of the food and drinks but I’ll still fly with Ryanair again."
Pros: "I got to my destination"
Cons: "If they don’t speak good English and have heavy accents, why don’t they slow down the announcements, so people have at least a small chance to understand???"
Cons: "The staff, the crew none could english well enough for anyone to understand them"
Pros: "The plane was nice and new."
Cons: "The cabin bag policy is ridiculous - we had small backpacks and had to put them in the hold. The plane was oversold so we were late while we waited for someone to get off. My friend has an NZ passport (with a 5 year ancestory UK visa) and had to print out her boarding pass at the hotel and then get it stamped - we don’t have to do this for any other low cost flights! Not sure Ryanair is really worth the “cheap” flights with all the add ons and hassle."
Pros: "No pude abordar por un error de la gente de atencion al cliente y despues viaje por otra aerolinea pagando nuevamente mi pasaje"
