Pros: "the plan"
Cons: "seevce was bed 10! hour alihhvwiyhb2 snacks"

Cons: "Due to mishandling of the situation, we were not allowed to board the plane, despite the fact there was no restriction for us not to do so."

Cons: "The transfer in Istambul was very tight on the way back I literally had to run to get to the flight"

Cons: "Seats are extremely uncomfortable.."

Cons: "The online check in wasn’t possible so I wasn’t able to choose my seat."

Pros: "The staff the staff the staff. They made the trip so enjoyable. The A330-300 aircraft was smooth and silent. Very impressed"
Cons: "The seats in business class were not as soft as they could be but very impressed overall and good value for the cost of the business class ticket"

Pros: "Really like the airline, sat in the front rim of economy. My husband is over 6ft and he was happy with the leg space. As was I since we flew right our 1 and a half year old boy."

Pros: "I had empty seats next to me"
Cons: "The guy that checked me in was very rude and wasn’t smiling at all and then he showed my passport picture to his colleague and they both started laughing. I was trying to use the restroom on the plane but there was a person in there for a long time; I waited outside patiently and then when I got in I brushed my teeth and used the toilet. It didn’t take me that long but the flight attendant knocked hard on the door but she didn’t do that for me with the other guy. I didn’t feel welcomed at all from the crew honestly."

Pros: "Excellent service"

Pros: "Service food timely departure"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"

Cons: "I got in a car accident on the way to the airport for my flight. I went in an ambulance to the ER and had a doctors note that I was safe to fly the next day. When I tried to move my ticket to the next day, with a business class ticket that cost $4000, Turkish airlines wouldn’t do it. They made me pay $3000 to get home . Unbelievable"

Pros: "Attaturk airport, nothing about the flight itself"
Cons: "Rude staff & flight attendants."

Cons: "Options for vegetarians were not really good."

Pros: "Easy check in"
Cons: "Please include sea food in your menu"

Pros: "The service in plane was on average , but this is provided with other airlines I guess"
Cons: "The trip was delayed with no apparent reason, they blamed Baghdad airport which they denied, the waiting area was uncomfortable There were people let them in bypassing the queue"

Pros: "They boarded on time, took off on time, and the service was friendly."
Cons: "Nothing really."

Pros: "First leg (Mia to Instanbul) crew was excellent!"
Cons: "second leg (Istanbul to Johannesburg) crew were rude!!!"

Cons: "The seat pocket of the seat in front of me was broken, which resulted in a metal wire poking into my legs for the entire duration of the flight. Not only was it uncomfortable and bordering on painful; but this could also potentially be dangerous in the event of an emergency!!!"

Cons: "I have been told at the airport that I had an unconfirmed flight and was told that I could not travel to Istanbul. I am still at my departure city, in Chicago. I bought my tickets just like anybody would, go on the website, pick the flights and pay. But someone did not do their job correctly and did not correctly confirm my flight. I paid for this incompetence by missing Christmas and a business meeting. Do not think it will never happen to you, it is just a matter of time that this kind of bad service catches up to you. The system is so disconnected or careless that it can't even figure out I couldn't take the flight which it is is asking me a review for."

Cons: "Too hot inside the plane. The back of my t-shirt was wet from sweat."

Pros: "I liked the overall plane journey."
Cons: "Flight was delayed which caused us to miss our connection flight."

Pros: "Service, food, staff—all excellent!"
Cons: "The cabins on both flights were too warm."

Pros: "Hospitable"

Pros: "Great service in the airplane plus they offer some amenities like slippers, tooth paste and toothbrush, they offer you wet towels to clean and refresh yourself during he flight. Really good."

Pros: "Good comfort, staff friendly and smiling. Passport control, security and boarding were straightforward."
Cons: "No boarding pass available online in advance for flights from Nicosia (neither electronic nor printed). Only to be collected at the airport. As a result , although I had no hold luggage (only cabin bag), I had to queue at the check-in/drop-baggage desk to obtain my boarding pass! This is the old prehistoric system dating back to the last century."

Pros: "Ataturk airport, meals"
Cons: "Turkish airlines staff are rude"

Cons: "Very disorganized the gate checking, staff ne d hospitality training . You ESP not have time for your queries and concerns . They are always in a hurry to finish talkign to you . Poor hygiene. The bathrooms are very dirty and has nomjand soap to wash your hands . Male staff in board come across unpolite. ingelt inwelcomed by the male flight attendant port side at the back.?"

Pros: "Good entertainment system with lots of options."
Cons: "The plane was uncomfortably warm throughout the (long!) flight, which made it difficult to get any rest."

Cons: "It was so uncomfortable to mrest on the old chair the tray table won't fold in the arm rest."

Pros: "My flight was delayed by an hour and I missed my flight scheduled to go Mykonos"

Pros: "Your crewsom"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Amazing food. Can't believe how good the desserts were. Entertainment also top notch."

Pros: "Food is excellent."

Pros: "Outstanding service Excellent food Adequate entertainment Seat recline was good for economy"
Cons: "For a long flight (8+ hours) legroom on this Airbus was quite cramped Again poor boarding announcements resulted in very chaotic boarding process"

Pros: "Excellent service, staff and food. All flights ran smooth, food and beverages were great and service from the crew was beyond great. During the fight, besides the food and drinks, we had lots of entertainment and games in the tv devices. I will definitely fly with Turkish Airlines again in the future."

Cons: "It is impossible to make a one hour connecting flight in Istanbul when you take off 30 minutes late, arrive at a distant site (~ 5 km away from the arrival terminal) and the there is only one security guard to screen hundreds arriving. Missed our flight by 90 minutes, the customer service people were rude at the airport and we had a 7 hour delay. What are you thinking???"

Pros: "I eventually arrived at the destination."
Cons: "Difficult to communicate with cabin crew due to lack of English. Flight was delayed by 1 hour. General atmosphere on plane was chaotic I think due to the small plane and length of flight as large numbers of people needed to use toilets."

Pros: "Not trying to be flattering here but it really is a good airline."

Pros: "Patience is a virtue"

Pros: "Service on board was terrible..."

Pros: "Took Turkish Airline from New Delhi to San Francisco. The flight is at 6:55am from New Delhi, so a little early start - but the connection in Istanbul is excellently timed. The aircrafts were 777-300ER on both legs, and rather new. The entertainment is great and the TV screens are 11inches. Could not complain at all. Food is fine, standard fare, and there are some snacks available through entire flight. Istanbul is a reasonable airport for a short connection. Turkish allows 2 bags of 50lbs free - yet another reason to take it along with the reasonable fares."
Cons: "The luggage delivery at SFO took forever! The flight landed at 4:36pm and I got my luggage at 5:40pm. This is something I have noticed on Turkish Airlines multiple times. They really need to work on their luggage workflow."

Pros: "The variety of films on show was decent"
Cons: "The crew skipped our aisle whilst delivering the toiletry bags, some announcements were made purely in Turkish without regard to English passengers. The boarding gate from Istanbul was opened much later than the advertised times."

Pros: "Good food, on time, comfterbal"
Cons: "Takes rime till theyl take your food plat"

Pros: "excellent food, service"

Cons: "Most concerning aspect is security. Very unlikely that I will choose Turkish airlines in the future"

Pros: "Food is always great on Turkish airlines. Entertainment was also great."
Cons: "My flight experience was ruined because TK02 flight was significantly delayed to Istanbul and therefore 25 oassengers did not make it to their flights. The way crew handled this was terrible, they did not care at all! We ended up all waiting for 9 hour at Ataturk Airport."

Pros: "Able to rest & crew very pleasant"
Cons: "Thought we might miss our next connection as it was tight, but we made it."

Pros: "Everything about the process was easy. We were updated throughout via email of our gate and baggage claim number. I was also very impressed with Turkish Airlines. We had a great experience."

Cons: "old and boring entertainment movies for a 7 hour trip. The cabine had no USB port or electrical port."

Pros: "Boarding process was very smooth. Chairs were comfortable"
Cons: "Entertainment options in business class were more limited than those of American carriers. Also, food was just okay."

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Luggage is ok"

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."

Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "Terrible business class."

Pros: "Seat very comfortable and service was excellent"
Cons: "The quality of the sound and image of the movie was not good"

Pros: "I didn’t like anything. Very unfriendly flight attendants. Late departure"

Cons: "Not charger ports, or entertainment of any kind."

Pros: "The flight was on time, the crew was fine"
Cons: "The business class lounge was closed, they gave us $25 per person voucher, but no one store in the airport wanted to accept them. There were not enough seats available when we were waiting for boarding. Business class entertainment needs significant improvement."

Pros: "Service was great"

Cons: "The flight arrived late 1.30 hours, so I miss the domestic flight."

Pros: "Rapidity for delivering the luggage"
Cons: "Verification of visa"

Pros: "NA"
Cons: "The crew was horrible I will never take Egypt sort again. Flight attended spilled hot tea on me and didn’t even apologize, I acknowledge it was both our fault but at least he could of provided a napki g so I could dry off. Horrible I will never recommend this airline"

Cons: "Translation speeches. Food uncooked. Bad entertainment"

Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "The plane was old, the seats were uncomfortable with no adjustable headrest or flaps to hold your head from flopping. There was no personal entertainment screens on the back of the seats, only the small community one mounted on the roof. The sound for this was terribly unclear. 8 hour boring flight."

Cons: "trip was very short however the crew was so nice and cooperative."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and spoke English."
Cons: "The crew left the meal trays for a long time after serving. It made it difficult for people to get up and go to the bathroom for example."

Pros: "On time, excellent boarding, excellent flight, food was good."
Cons: "Small plane, Crew was setting in the back chitchatting."

Pros: "Big plane, multiple boarding points. Food did its job & helped with the long flight. Movies weren't expansive, but good choices to kill the time."
Cons: "The crew did not have the key to unlock to doors leading to the plane, which forced everyone to wait 30 mins standing in line. It was quite silly! It delayed our flight about 30-45 minutes - not much, but really painful when the flight is almost 12 hours. The crew didn't tell us what was happening either, but it was pretty obvious."

Pros: "I’m sitting at Buisness which I usually do !!!"
Cons: "Wish they renew the cabin knoiwngvthat in even in business but it is so old and food is v avarage also the service is v avarage even they don’t offer you before flight any drinks !!!!!"

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Staff are rude in comparison to other airlines, hostess greeting us actually called my 2 year old naughty for touching the toilet door whilst boarding! Media is also limited and with constant interruptions, plus not available for take off or landing! Tray tables were dirty, I’ve honestly given up trying to eat the food on board these flights! Despite numerous tags and a note on my ticket the stroller is never able to be brought up to the aircraft door. I won’t be flying Egyptair again"

Cons: "The plane should be at least clean. Sat close to the window twice and it was dirty with some weird stuff. The seat beat was also dirty."

Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "It took over an hour to check-in. People were pushing in because it was not well marked and nobody directing the people. It was terrible. The plane has very old seats, and no entertainment screen on seats, still the old monitors hanging from the roof."

Cons: "Entertainment needs more enhancement"

Pros: "Excellent customer service"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "We had a 10 hour lay-over in Cairo and EgyptAIr shuttled us to an excellent hotel and provided lunch and dinner - all for free. This was most excellent and so much more pleasant than sitting at the airport!"
Cons: "If EgyptAir would distribute a little English sheet how the steps are, where to get the passports back (at the EgyptAir Counter in the main hall at the airport), which lines to go to (we didn't officially immigrate, but still had to go through immigration upon return, which wasn't clear). Maybe a word on legal boundaries of the status in Egypt - EgyptAir had the passport, can we go to the pyramids or not - would be useful, too."

Cons: "Lots of security checks with no solid standards"

Pros: "Punctuality"
Cons: "A flight attendant was discussing with a passenger through out the flight disturbing other passengers. What a shame for a red eye flight"

Pros: "The boarding time was exact , the flight was relaxing, staff was professional It was really a five stars."

Pros: "Comfortable red-eye flight to Johannesburg. Food very good and plentiful. Plane spacious and not crammed."

Pros: "Was good trip in terms of timing!"

Pros: "This was a return flight from Cairo to Washington. I called the Cairo office multiple times to add a pet to my ticket. I couldn't check in online and when I called to ask they said that's because I'm making changes (pet) that's why I can't do it and I should do it at airport.. I'm Cairo airport the check point is as soon as you get thru the main door.. Waited in line for check in only to find that all 4 tickets (me and 3 kids) were cancelled and that we had to go outside again to the reservation office (had to go thru check point again) to reissue the tickets. They didn't even appologize for their mistake and they blamed the travel agency.. Very unprofessional and irresponsible people."

Pros: "Pilots are excellent at smooth landing."
Cons: "To most Arabs, broadcasting a prayer before taking off is routine and goes without notice. To foreigners, it could initiate fear about the safety of the plane as it projects a need to rely on a super power to make it. It's cultural and could be misunderstood."

Cons: "Wasnt direct"

Pros: "Entertainment was better than first leg"
Cons: "Attendant woke me up several times. Bag was destroyed when I picked it up."

Pros: "Accurate time of departure and landing. Excellent and generous service. Cheap price. 62 kg weight allowed. Comfortable business class."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "terrible airline"
Cons: "delayed my flights twice"

Cons: "The snacks were basic and tasteless"

Pros: "I had an entire row to myself so this greatly improved my experience, but if this had not been the case I don't think I would have rated my flight as high."

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "No inflight entertainment"

Cons: "Whites are given more attention than blacks yet we all pay for the flight"

Pros: "Comfortable seating"
Cons: "Food was bad"

Cons: "Entertainment system plays very old films Stop over 5 hours."

Pros: "The crew is always great and friendly."
Cons: "The food was really bad. It was some kind of beef but it was uneatable."

Pros: "Timeous and polite crew"
Cons: "The food was mediocre and no choice for entertainment, common movie or 2 low quality music channels"

Cons: "Staff on the airplane a bit miserable. Uncomfortable seats and no choice of food. Going downhill"

Pros: "Late arrival Nairobi. missed flight"
Cons: "Late arrival Nairobi. missed flight"

Pros: "The baggage handler for Kenya Airways, Derrick, in Johannesbury was very helpful checking on my delayed luggage. The flights and flight attendants were very good."
Cons: "Late departures, unscheduled stop for crew, and baggage not making new flights made me miss two transfer flights. Closed sales kiosk in Johannesburg unable to get an hotel and meal vouchers. Sales lady was rude the next day. Arrived Cape Town over 24 hours late."

Pros: "The plane and flight crew were fine"
Cons: "Overbooked flight- cancelled many people's trips! A dozen people with printed out and confirmed flights were turned away and asked to book with other airlines. Anyone who didn't checkin online was left at the airport- even those who booked, paid in full, and confirmed in person at the Kenya Airways office the day before. And we were all at the airport hours early. The ground staff in Arusha had no idea how to check people into the flight. They lied to us about what was happening and wouldn't update us about how they overbooked. They tried to email the main office and refused to just call them on the phone. I only got on the flight because I ignored their suggestion to 'just go sit down and let them work it out'. For people who did what they were told- they all missed the flight. I did online checkin on my phone and then all of a sudden there was a seat for me on the plane and I got on. Everyone else was left at the airport with no idea what was happening. I normally love Kenya Airways, but this level of overbooking and incompetent ground staff made me change my mind."

Cons: "Kenya Airways ground staff in Nairobi was late to open the desk, creating a large line"

Pros: "Convenient morning flight"
Cons: "Not enough leg room for tall passengers"

Pros: "The staff in Addis was pleasant."
Cons: "My original flight was cancelled and I was only given an hour notice before arrival time at the airport! I was rerouted from a one hour direct flight to a 7 hour delay through Nairobi then to Djibouti."

Cons: "The airline doesn't accept payments for changing flights over the phone. I arrived at Lilongwe airport and they said I couldn't pay them there and that I should pay in Nairobi. The plane was of course late leaving Malawi and when I arrived in Nairobi, the plane was getting ready to leave. The customer service line had +20 people in it. I waited my turn then the agent said it was my fault that I missed the flight and the next flight would be $243 USD instead of $90 like the gate agent stated. Then they told me I had to pay the $243 in cash and they didn't accept credit cards. All of the ATMs were broken there. I returned to the agent and they did accept credit cards, they just didn't want to go to the office to swipe it. The entire ordeal took +4 hours. Worst customer service ever."

Pros: "Flight management was okay from Mombasa up to landing in Nairobi"
Cons: "Plane could not park at the domestic arrival, yet at the international slot we had to wait over 15 Minutes without communication by crew. Captain only announced when parking slot became available. It took long to get baggage delivered to domestic side and when baggage arrived some including mine were wet with stinking liquid in spite of no rain around airport. at the end Passengers on a later flight made it smoothly out and eventually lost 45 minutes since landing and dirty baggage."

Cons: "The food was so-so. The flight was delayed. The crew was friendly, but nothing outstanding."

Cons: "They lost one piece of baggage. The check-in crew said we were required to have our vaccination cards although nobody asked for them. Then we waited an hour pulling off one piece of baggage and then they didn't load it on our flight."

Cons: "I was originally scheduled on a Precision Airways flight but it did not fly, so put on Kenya Airways flight. Unfortunately my bag didn't make it so had to spend the night without it. It did come the next day, so I was able to climb Kilimanjaro. Don't know which company messed up."

Cons: "Flight cancelled streessed up"

Pros: "It was a great flight except for food"
Cons: "Choice of dish - fish ( was like rubber) or beef"

Pros: "Plane was a new Dreamliner and nice to fly in with excellent entertainment package."
Cons: "I had 3 hours in Johannesburg before catching a shuttle bus, so being an hour late wasn't a big problem. After rushing from Entebbe flight which was an hour late leaving and arriving, I got to the gate to be informed that this NBO to JNB flight was an hour late in departing. Pilot said it was due to "technical difficulties". My ticket had 4 legs : Nov 28 due to leave JNB at 1:20 finally left at 8:30 due to NBO runway closed from plane belly landing - the pilot was very apologetic - LATE. Dec 5 NBO to Entebbe was an hour late due to "passenger problem and luggage taken off" - LATE. Dec 10 Entebbe to NBO left an hour late due to "plane arriving late" - LATE. Dec 10 NBO to Johannesburg was an hour late due to "technical difficulties" - LATE. All 4 flights were at least an hour late leaving and arriving yet the pilots all said thanks for flying Kenya Airways - the Pride of Africa. This is what Africa should be proud of ?!? and Kenya Airways is proud of ?!? Passengers I talked to all were negative in their comments about Kenya Airways. All said there is ALWAYS something of a problem on a Kenya Airways flight. Lady on NBO to EBB flight next to me as we boarded plane and I said everything has gone smoothly so far, replied - the flight isn't over yet - and then we sat in the plane for an hour while they "removed passengers luggage". A man in NBO departure area as we waited to board JNB late flight said, the procedures and organisation are terrible with problems most of the time, which was why he was using up his reward miles because he didn't want to fly Kenya Airways again. This is the culture of this airline which is allowed to continue with seemingly no regard for the paying customers. If the powers that be such as the FAA, imposed a $100 credit to each passenger for late leaving or arriving, I would have received $400 back on a ticket that cost $750. Maybe the airlines would do something practical to remedy their problems and care for the paying customers rather than just saying "we are sorry for any inconvenience "."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled after waiting from midnight until 6:00 am in the Airport. Could have gone to a hotel... lost 2 days"

Pros: "That we eventually left"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed because the airport shut down. When the airport opened again. They gave us a departure time 4 hours after our original departure time (1:20 am). 1:20 came and went without any more communication or information. 1:40 am arrived and someone from KQ showed up at our gate and said they do not have any additional information. We said there are children here and hungry, tired, frustrated people. We suggested they distribute waters or snacks, but that never happened. They just kept telling us they didnt know when the flight would take off (or if it would) nor when they would have any additional information. An hour later they made one announcement over the speaker at our gate that our flight was boarding at another gate. However, many people had fallen asleep on the floor as I had and I would have missed it if one of my fellow passengers hadnt woken me up to say that we were boarding. We then sat on the tarmac a while longer for reasons that were not explained and finally landed 7 hours later than scheduled. Very little effort was put into communicating to us, making our wait comfortable nor apologizing for the inconvenience. It was a very frustrating experience."

Cons: "The planes on this route are also very old with manual screens,unnecessary delays. I mean KQ needs to style up. Another airline will soon sweep them off business"

Cons: "Not much space between rows,everybody reclined their seat, you could barley move"

Cons: "Their flights have been late all the two times I flew with Kenya Airways. Could be a problem if you need to connect to another flight!!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "That the flight time was changed from 8am to 10am and we were not informed until check-in time. Then the flight was changed from 10 to midday, but we were only told during boarding and told to go for breakfast at some restaurant without getting directions. On arriving at the restaurant, we were made to sit in a waiting area for over 30 mins then later told to move to another restaurant, without directions. After going through the gate to board for the midday flight and waiting over an hour, we were informed that we were to fly at 4:15pm! The flight was uncomfortable with seats that had absolutely no leg room and non reclining seats"

Pros: "Flight from Entebbe left late, we arrived in Nairobi late but still could have missed our connection but the airline refused to let us board. We were told they were booking a hotel for us and would fly out in the morning, we were left for an hour to wait for the KQ employee to return. We ended up sleeping in the KQ lounge and my bag was left in Nairobi. A day later they called to tell me the bag arrived, when I asked for them to deliver it they were very apprehensive and upset because they were not sure how they would organize this. No voucher was provided for this inconvenience and the customer service was sub part. Will not fly KQ in the future unless the airline makes a gesture to rectify this."

Pros: "very efficient processes and very friendly/capable flight crew."
Cons: "the food was not great (i don't have high expectations for airplane food)"

Pros: "the flight was clean, decent food, and good service."
Cons: "The Video capabilities did not work on the flights."

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "They lost my luggage going to AFRICA...didn't see the suitcase until 6 days later. When I received the suitcase, over $1000 in equipment was stolen , suitcase was all scrambled...I WAS ROBBED ! ...then on the return flight to HOUSTON, they lost my suitcase again ! W.T.F ?! No one has called me to apologize for anything ! I expect to be reimbursed for my loses, or I will sue the airline."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "They are always late"

Pros: "Extremely friendly and helpful hosts. Enough space. Overall a very rewarding way of travelling to East Africa. Will use them again. Very impressed on our flight from Johannesburg to Nairobi -- they booked our 87 year old father-in-law about 5 hours before flight time, took care of his luggage all the time, and helped him get on the flight after midnight on his own.
