Courteous! Long lines.

The in flight services is great. However, the planes do not depart on time if they are departing from other Airports except in Doha. If you have a small window with your layover, be prepared that you might miss your connecting flight. My luggage was delayed because their departing flight from a non-Doha Airport was late to arrive. Their baggage department is beyond horrible, there is no number to call and have to use Whatsapp and a reply can take more than 3 hours. I had to track the luggage by going the Atlanta International Airport and wait 3 hours for a manager with Qatar airways to first board a flight and then to get my luggage, since they do not have anyone in baggage services. For this I will never fly Qatar Airways ever again.

This flight was cancelled

Services were excellent and given on time.

Pros: "Services are the best"
Pros: "I really loved the food and the attendants were super friendly and helpful"
Pros: "Excellent Cabin services."
Cons: "don't know of anything"
Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Perfect"
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "We were told to board, but then kept in another area close on 1 hour before we could get on the plane and this area had no bathroom facilities. The spread of seating on the plane made no sense with many open seats but also many squashed rows of people. The crew was visibly tired and irritated, they also ran out of a few catering items. It seemed as if last minute, a few different flights were combined into this one which lowered the quality."
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Pros: "Food and leg room"
Cons: "All was fine"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and delightful."
Cons: "The crew was amazing and delightful but should provide food to kids first before even those special diet or vegetarians."
Cons: "The vegetarian option for breakfast was a stale waffle with apple compote. Inedible."
Pros: "Crew was great. TV Entertainment system was excellent."
Pros: "Everything ,good service ,friendly crew affordable rates"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Extra leg room only coz I was on exit isle"
Cons: "Entertainment is poor. Very few selections on black movies and music. Mostly Arabic and Indians. Food was alright"
Pros: "Everything frim the xrew I could at the JKIA, NBO to Delhi. One thing more from my city Lubumbashi, I didn't care about getting my phone bzttery low. I could chzrge my phone all the journey long. And from Nairobi, I dodn't czre at zll about my phobe, because I knew I could charge dur to the usb device. If ever something to complain about, I'll let you know. Regards Richzrd DIAS"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "It seems the major airlines use older aircraft when the destination of the flight is a third world country(or Africa). The seats aren't as comfortable and the entertainment system (screens) are not as good as a Qatar and Europe bound flights."
Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "Horrible flight experience and old planes without USB plug inn and no seat entertainment"
Pros: "The flights attendants were very helpful and polite. What I enjoyed the most was the level of comfort I had. I was able to sleep for almost the entire flight. That's why it felt like it wasn't even a long flight."
Cons: "We did leave a little late but it was out of the control of the pilots and flights attendants."
Pros: "There was adequate seat room. The device was good."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."
Pros: "Staff was great"
Pros: "Thank you for a very good flight experience both from Philadelphia to Doha and Doha to Johannesburg."

Pros: "Dreamliner"
Pros: "All the services plus the entire team"
Cons: "I missed my flight from Nairobi to Melbourne then the airlines asked for penalties and fare difference which in total was much higher than booking a fresh one way flight. I felt that the crew at Nairobi airport handled the situation pretty well however, the staff at the Nairobi reservation office were a bit cold and not very helpful."
Cons: "Seat to LA was broken"
Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "When the flight is changed by airline for their convenience, they would have given preferential treatment to the passengers involved. We had to bare the cost of food and make us comfortable on our own due to the delay in transit."
Pros: "Crew"
Pros: "Great cabin crew"
Cons: "Crappy old style recliner seats in business class for a 6 hour flight. Not consistent with the Qatar brand"
Pros: "The crew aboard the flight were kind and thoughtful and definitely oriented toward service."
Cons: "The security process at the gate was really disorderly. Perhaps it is because it is a new and extra step required by the US but it was definitely not efficiently handled."
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "The friendliness of the staff from check in to arrival!"
Pros: "Unfortunately..."
Cons: "...as mentioned, I don't have the pleasure of rating this flight because of the boarding delays and missing the flight. Very disappointing."
Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"
Pros: "Service of air stewards very friendly and polite"
Cons: "This goes for Qatarfigjta from harare to Doha and Doha to Washington DC and back. I am not going to give individual report on each one. Food - my daughter could barely eat anything and the vegetarian meals were stone cold most of time. It was hard to eat at Qatar airport because not only is the food terrible (Burger King and bad Asian food) but outrageously expensive. Our media system did not work for one leg. ** way to many ads on your media system. Every time you watch a new TV episode, you have to sit through 5-6 ads for stuff that is not interesting and the same each time. ** plane info on media system keeps reverting to Arabic even when English is indicated as preferred la gauge. We had to place our iPads in checked luggage for flights from harare to USA as we went through Qatar. *** I asked for quiet seats and was given seats near kitchen and toilet even though I booked in hours in advance. One leg had my ten year old daughter and I in different rows even though I checked in 4-5 hours in advance Of flight . ** staff moved my hand luggage without my permission and without informing me - it was stressful trying to find it."
Pros: "Excellent experience overall, the food was decent, the seats were comfortable and had enough space for me at 6ft tall, the staff were very friendly and helpful, entertainment selection was good with plenty of new movies out. I had no problems with my layover. The baggage allowance was great as I had extra luggage from my trip. I'm very happy with their customer service, the day before my first flight I received a phone call from Qatar's customer service saying that due to delays I wouldn't be able to make my connecting flight to Edinburgh so they would like to book me on another flight instead of me having to wait 24 hours in Doha. I was thoroughly impressed with this service."

Pros: "Everything else"
Cons: "Too much air condition... cold!!"

Pros: "Great crews, excellent airplanes, wonderful in transit experince."
Cons: "In flight coach meals were average."
Pros: "On time departure, friendly crew. Comfortable seats for economy class, plenty of entertainment options. A pleasant experience"
Cons: "The food was okay. The hot wrap/calzone served first was not very tasteful. The breakfast/brunch was better. Not much to dislike overall."
Pros: "Again on time and effortless boarding made the overall experience a good one."
Cons: "Our suitcase was damaged...still in the process of trying to get it fixed. Hopefully it will be done soon. I will then update this report. Could maybe clean the toilets as it did become a bit messy."
Pros: "Staff was very friendly and food was very good."
Cons: "Older plane, TV screens in the ceiling, only bathrooms at the rear of the plane."
Cons: "JKIA airport was terrible. Staff were late to come to the check in counters. Why can't they be there earlier than one hour so we don't have to stand in line for so long with our bags. Totally shambolic affair."
Pros: "Seat reclining was good. Fleece blankets were warm"
Cons: "Blankets had a really bad smell Food options were very limited - even bread was eggless"
Pros: "I was happy to avail of Wifi in the sky."

Pros: "Fligh was on time, front desk staff were very helpfful, flight staff were friendly"
Pros: "That there were not many people on the second leg and that the plane was clean"
Cons: "The fact that we had an itinerary change with an extra stop (unannounced until 15 minutes before I boarded the flight) that delayed us by 1+ hours, that we were delayed from leaving Kigali by 1.5 hours and none of the crew could explain what was going on, that the rwandair staff was rude. I mean... It's Rwanda so I didn't expect much customer service (they are generally particularly bad by African, European, Asian or American standards) and I definitely wasn't impressed"
Pros: "Everything was perfect. On time arrival."
Cons: "Loud Nigerian co-passengers"
Pros: "Timeliness, Service, Cleanliness Comfort"
Pros: "The food initially given at 2:00am IST was really good and so I didn't even have to wake up again to eat."
Cons: "The breakfast was not as appetizing."
Pros: "New airline. Left 20 mins early."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "The food options were unclear- they didn't announce what was in each meal, aside from the type of meat. It wouldn't kill you to have a vegetarian option on hand either, especially since your website doesn't work."
Pros: "the snack was terrific!"
Pros: "Information during flight"
Cons: "No TV or programmes to entertain slong"
Pros: "Was good on time"
Pros: "on schedule. staff at counters and flight crew were courteous and professional."

Cons: "Reservation was not honored, and only 3 prople out of 5 get boarding. Airline did not provided any other alternative and our friends had to cancel tour and return home!"
Pros: "Very slow check in. Bit slow and chaotic at gate. Pleasant enough service but not excetional. Smooth flight. Informative pilot. Silly short bus ride to terminal. Very very long wait for baggage."

Pros: "Like Kigali it was clean and efficient."
Cons: "Food is almost inedible"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Time management"
Pros: "Plane was clean and very comfortable, staff was courteous. Surprisingly good food for a short flight"
Cons: "Changed flight times without informing passengers on BOTH of the legs. Staff were polite, but were more interested in following the rules than helping people get on their flights. No customer feedback forms were available"
Pros: "I like the overall service in the plane."
Cons: "I didn't like changing the boarding time."
Pros: "Planes were great and flight crew excellent."
Cons: "On arrival at Kigali airport we were quickly moved through security to the departure area. This area was hot and without any facilities for toilets or water. We sat there for at least 1 hour and was a low light in out trip."
Pros: "Planes were great and flight crew excellent."
Pros: "The crew is nice"
Cons: "Both flights were terribly delayed and while the crew apologized we sat on a small plane. In Entebbe the reason was they overbooked the flight. So leave those people behind to take the next flight, don't keep us prisoners on a plane for hours... Stupid management decisions."
Pros: "movie dinner on each leg of the flight"
Cons: "the movie didn't finish in the first leg and they didn't show it for the second leg, so I never learned the ending the flight arrived 40 minutes late"
Pros: "RwandAir flew us to Nairobi instead and I thought that was good of them to make that change for us. The above evaluation pertains to the flight to Nairobi."
Pros: "Clean planes"
Cons: "Ground crew at NBO - Rwanda Air has Kenyan Airways do the work in the terminals. Bad idea!"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "This airline is an operational nightmare. I purchased a ticket with a connection, and the second flight being a codeshare, two months in advance. On the day of travel, I checked in, checked two bags, and headed to the gate. An hour before the flight, a Rwandaair agent approached me to inform me that they were no longer code sharing with precision air, the second flight. Chaos ensued, my bags got lost, I got stuck in Nairobi, etc. in Nairobi, one of the Kenya airways agents literally said to me 'avoid Rwandaair and precision airlines - they are both airlines that do not follow any regulations, and not just operational, but safety as well.'"
Pros: "Crew were pleasant. The flight was comfortable."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, causing me to miss a connecting flight. Boarding was a bit confusing as multiple flights were departing from Kigali airport at the same time and same airline. Information was not conveyed clearly and it might have been easy to begin boarding the wrong flight."
Pros: "the flight got me to Gaborone on Monday morning"
Cons: "Person in Kigali checked my bag to Johannesburg, not Gaborone. Flight was delayed one hour. Slept on a chair in Johannesburg airport for three hours."
Pros: "In general, it was a pleasant flight from Entebbe to Kigali. The Bombardier was in pristine condition. There was no food offered (the flight is 45 minutes) and there is no entertainment available. The crew was pleasant and the seat comfortable (I am 5'11). I would fly again with RwandAir."
Cons: "There was nothing significant enough taken into consideration the characteristics of this flight and the construction in Entebbe."
Pros: "Very professional - gave us a good meal - although flight was a little more than an hour. Will recommend to friends"
Cons: "Service & good landing"
Cons: "The arrival time was stated as 1:40pm but in reality it was a 1:10pm arrival so I had arranged my driver to collect at the wrong time and he wasn't there when I arrived."

Cons: "No entertainment, some few crew members has a bit of an attitude."
Pros: "Free wifibat the airport and the charging stations"
Pros: "It was a short flight and all went well. We even had time for a snack."

Deplaning suggestion: Inited could take a page from other countries airlines and ask that we remain seated until theorie in front of us deplanes. Easier on everyone that way

Easy short flight from Johannesburg to Harare. Boarding was slow, flight attendants were friendly. They did a meal service on this short flight, including wine, which was pretty cool.

Loved the customer service and the fact that everything was on time, the served refreshments are a cherry on top

There was no entertainment, but that is not expected on a flight less than 2 1/2 hours. Uber clean aircraft, good boxed meal and friendly flight attendants. Very please with the experience

The check-in line was long and people were put in front of me in the line even after I said I had checked in online. It took me an hour to finally get my documents checked and drop my suitcase. It was horrible!

Pros: "The crew was mazing and the seats are so comfortable."
Cons: "To me everything was excellent from the captain to the flight attendants i was impressed i have been to all domestic flights but Airlink is the best and after yesterday flight i decided that Airlink is the one for me onwards. The only thing i can suggest is the points program then the sky will be the limit for you. Keep up the good work guys BIG UP."
Pros: "Flight was on time and crew was great"
Cons: "good short flight"
Pros: "Time keeping, plane was well sized and okay"
Cons: "Didn’t get a single sensible meal!"
Pros: "Attendant was professional"
Cons: "It was okay"
Pros: "Everything was good!"
Cons: "For a short flight on a small aircraft nothing could have been better."
Pros: "It's a shorter flight so, no IFE. The front row of the business section was nice. I'm glad that reserving those seats worked out for this flight, although it didn't on all the other flights."
Cons: "No entertainment available, and the BUQ departure lounge could be improved"
Pros: "I was forced to give my carry on bag to be put in the hold. They said that it would not fit in the plane. When we got to our destination, i found that a large sum of money from my bag was stolen,"
Cons: "Security of our baggage should be better. And if you cannot fit the standard carry on bags, then please say so when people make their booking so that they can pack accordingly and do not bring carry on bags that they have to give up at the last minute. it is impossible to remove items last minute."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Luggage was riffled through and item stolen"
Cons: "Delayed flight with close connecting flight and none of the flight or ground crew were able to communicate with the connecting flight gate agents. No priority for deplaning and tarmac shuttle was given to those with close connecting flight. Had to sprint through airport and barely made connection."
Pros: "Amazing crew, wonderful short flight and delicious snack. Could not be any better."
Cons: "Just continue the wonderful service."
Pros: "Everything was good"
Pros: "There was hardly anyone on the flight so I got a row to myself! Also the flight was fast and smooth and landed on time despite boarding about 45 minutes late"
Cons: "At the beginning they needed 8 people to move up front for take off which was weird but obviously not anyone’s fault, and if the flight was full wouldn’t have happened, so it’s probably not something that could be done differently but was just weird."
Pros: "Seats were noticeably more spacious than comparable airlines. Good entertainment system and selection of films."
Cons: "Location of plug sockets, very difficult to use."
Cons: "The staff at Vic Falls airport tried to charge me several hundred dollars for extra bag fees. The fee kept changing depending on who I was speaking with and when I agreed to pay with my AMEX they said they did not take AMEX so they eventually waived the fee. This was only done after showing the manager a printed copy of my booking which listed that passengers are allowed 2 checked bags each. This was all done in the office of the South African Airways who I assume was managing the Airlink flight."
Cons: "Johannesburg Airport was terrible and every where we turned in the airport we got misinformation and people tried to scam us for tips including airport employees."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Efficient crew"
Pros: "Airport check in went quickly and smoothly! Waiting lounge was excellent!"
Cons: "Nothing to report."
Pros: "The crew was nice, overall a good flight."
Cons: "Had to pay extra baggage on a long layover, because we couldn’t check our bags all the way. My husband amd I had seats next to each other and then when we got to the gate, they had switched his seat... not ideal traveling with a 4 month old."
Pros: "The crew were great."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 2 hours. We barely made our connection flight in Johannesburg, which resulted in us having to run through the airport. We did not have time to get dinner."
Cons: "With over 1.5 hrs to check in, guards allowed others to cut in front and my son was told no problem, he would not miss his flight. He did miss his flight and couldn’t apply his ticket to another flight. Had to pay in full to buy another ticket for a flight 5.5 hrs later. Not good!!"
Pros: "Easy process to get to Joberg. Flight was on time and comfortable."
Cons: "Similar to some other reviewers we had to completely exit the terminal at JNB and then check in for our international flight sequence on Qatar, this was easy but caused a little anxiety, especially after learning that the total checked baggage for one person on the air link is 30kgs (66lbs) which is less than standard international weights. We had to pay extra for the “overweight” bags but the cost was reasonable. I would use the airline again."
Pros: "The plane from Antanarivo as on time - quite an accomplishment for Madagascar!"
Pros: "Stewardess was very professional, spoke clearly, was very helpful. On time and affordable rates!"
Pros: "the seats"
Cons: "Food was cold"
Cons: "The flights were not operated by South African Airways, so when we arrived to Johannesburg we had to take our luggage and register it again and make a second check-in. Because both flights were operated by airlines different from South African Airways we were not able to accumulate our One World miles."
Pros: "Everything was good - timely, service, check in, etc."
Pros: "The flight attendant was really friendly and accommodating. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Can add a few more options for snacks. The chips and candy are pretty crappy."
Pros: "Left inn time and arrived a bit early only 12 14 passengers in a 36 pAX plane..."
Cons: "Small Cramped seats No power plugs...average food"
Pros: "Seats wider (or seemed to be so) than most economy flights. Flight crew courteous."
Cons: "Have lived in Madagascar for almost two decades and have never seen such disorganized boarding. No signage, staff all the same uniforms (thus no visual clues), no gate noted on boarding pass. Very frustrating. Two Airlink flights were leaving at the same time due to a delay for one flight, so better communication needed. Plane toilet disgusting and would not flush."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "I do not understand why the staff wait for all passengers to be on board and close the door to spray this unbreathable air spray. I was suffocating during a few minutes and coughed during the whole flight. My throat still hurts. The cheese sandwich was terrible."
Pros: "Efficient on time no hassle"
Pros: "Small plane but a very short flight, so its fine."
Cons: "nothing"
Cons: "Cold food. SAA used to serve hot meals. What happened to that?"
Pros: "short, easy flight"
Pros: "Pilot and Stewardess were good and airport was nice. I appreciated the flights from Cape Town to Skukuza and from Skukuza to Johanesberg."
Cons: "Airport crew not able to answer questions outside of their scope of responsibility. I asked a question several times and reply was "good afternoon". finally another person helped and directed me to another part of the airport where I asked the same question and received blank faces until supervisor showed up."
Pros: "It all went as expected. Today, that is excellent"
Pros: "I enjoyed looking out the window as we flew. Interesting countryside compared to what we have where I live in the U.S."
Cons: "Maun airport is small but it gets the job done. The people at the SAA counter were not well versed with checking bags to your final destination when you continued on from Johannesburg."
Pros: "South African Airlines is like flying years ago when you were given respect and special treatment. It's my favorite airline, by far. Actually, it's the only airline I like to fly. I've flown Delta, Lufthansa, KLM and United to South Africa - big mistake. SAA is what I wish all other airlines are. They are first rate."
Pros: "Pleasant experience. Gate personnel and crew were friendly and helpful; plane and seating were comfortable."
Cons: "No flight information signage at gate, and gate boarding public announcements were distorted. Besides being distorted, it was hard to understand the 'English' translated announcement."
Cons: "Delayed flight due to airplane malfunction and caused late arrival and could not make our connecting flight. Had to argue for support to stay in Johannesburg due to the inconvenience"
Pros: "Stewardess was very professional, spoke clearly, was very helpful. On time and affordable rates!"
Pros: "Quick check in"
Cons: "Quants needs to upgrade they are falling behind in th bussness class game quiet badly This is my third trip in 4 years from Sydney to JHB and the service, seating etc is the same Tiered plans tiered overall"
Pros: "Great time to arrive in Cape Town. Late Afternoon, head into Cape Town against the flow of traffic so it is an easy ride. Quick, convenient."
Cons: "It is an expensive flight"

Good in general

Staff were very nice and professional. 🙏. International/domestic recheck was very confusing

Missed connection due to a 1,5 hours delay on the first flight, resulting in 24 hours delay to destination. Poor assistance at the airport. Long wait with not even internet connection. Awful experience.

As usual, Egyptair was late in departing, so I was late in arriving in Cairo for the connecting flight. It was a short one hour flight, but being 15 minutes late is not good.

Cons: "egyptair flight 985 no space between sets no social distancing very bad not comfortable flight"
Cons: "They won’t allow me to fly"
Cons: "Everything was ok and no delays"
Pros: "The only thing is good, they gave us a room for the missing flight which is because of them. Poor customer service, no communication, the flight is always late and you will miss your flight."

Cons: "Food, seats"
Pros: "Professionalisms of Crew"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "The captain"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Egypt air is one of the worst airlines in the world so everything could have been better. Literally everything"

Pros: "The crew were very friendly"
Cons: "The airplane was too old and uncomfortable"
Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "Not much- the flight , plane and crew were fantastic"

Cons: "Im still not st my destination due to delays of the airline"
Pros: "Flight durations were good."

Cons: "Your company canceled the tickets from Kenya to cairo"
Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Perfect"
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."
Pros: "Nice experience except for the delay in Dubai."
Cons: "Any delay would have been nice. we really had to run a lot in El Cairo Airport in order to catch the conection flight to Madrid."
Pros: "We managed to upgrade to first class. This made the 12-hour flight very relaxing. Service was excellent. As usual, Egyptian pilots are the best in landing"

Pros: "This flight was on time and I truly appreciate when EgyptAir flights are on time."
Cons: "when issues electronic boarding pass it was mentioned I have to leave from terminal 3 .. when went there they said it is wrong & changed to seasonal terminal which is 30 mnts drive by the terminals bus.. very frustrating experience"

Pros: "Possibly the food and the flight is direct"
Cons: "Anything else you could think of. The crew is unfriendly the plane is messy no one follows rules or regulations just a complete mess"
Pros: "Duration of fligjt"

Cons: "Check in employee playing games on his phone instead of talking to me"
Pros: "Crew was super nice and helpful. Flight schedule was on time."
Pros: "The dinner food was decent (breakfast was subpar)."
Cons: "We waited about an hour lined up outside of the gate to board. Then when we finally boarded late, we sat on the runway for 2 hours! This wasn’t the first time it’s happened on this flight, either! We were thirsty and no one offered us water. The flight attendants kept skipping my friend and I when they did come around, which was not often. We were extremely thirsty the entire time and when we finally were able to get up to use the bathroom and search for water, we were told to sit back down. We got tiny cups of water about three times on a 10.5 hour flight. Lastly, the entertainment selection was very small and limited."
Pros: "Boarding was quick although about 10 min. late. We did arrive on time. I was surprised to get breakfast which wasn’t bad at all."
Pros: "Inexpensive fair."
Cons: "Little interaction with crew"
Pros: "Everything"
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: "The quality of service and aircraft"
Cons: "Some of the seats are situated so that you really can't see the movie. The screen closest was right above my head and the next one was too far to really see especially with the glare"
Cons: "why do you have 3 people in 1 row and zero in another?"
Pros: "Time..... everything was on time no late ..flight take off on time with good security Processing"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Comfortable red-eye flight to Johannesburg. Food very good and plentiful. Plane spacious and not crammed."
Pros: "It got me from point A to point B so it met the minimum requirements."
Cons: "Was late getting loaded and off the ground. The shuttle to/from airport & Abu Simbel was not identified in any way."
Cons: "Wish SAA doesn’t stop their operation, friendly cabin crew and tremendous professional on deck crew"
Cons: "everything ok"
Pros: "Crew was really awesome"
Cons: "More information regarding seating preferences"
Cons: "Plane is old and systems worn out. Seats uncomfortable, little leg room, no premium economy and entertainment system didn't work. I have flown nearly 2 million miles and this has to be one of the worst planes I have been on."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The food was good for airplane food."
Cons: "We were moved to 8 different pairs of seats in search of video/audio systems that worked and were unable to find any that worked properly. That's pretty bad. I travel every year to RSA and used to use Delta. As a result of this trip I may revert back to Delta"
Pros: "The food was really nice and the crew were very helpful."
Cons: "Our experience could have been better if the flights were on time and if the boarding process was a little more organized. Otherwise, we had a great experience with SA airlines and will most likely fly with them again."
Pros: "Seat was awesome. Paid for business class. There were actually 2 stewardess out of the four working. A blonde and a woman of middle east descent."
Cons: "Business first class. I was waiting foe the doors to open and not ome stewardess told me it was wrong door. Ran down to catch bus . They were closing the doors. Told them wait i am business. Omly one on the tarmat. Bus stopped. Doors ope ed and a African young man said go on. He packed me in the eco"
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Was4hrs delay out of jfk"
Pros: "arranged suitable seating for infant travelling with."
Pros: "Only good things about this flight were the price and the fact that it’s direct from NYC to Johannesburg."
Cons: "The plane is very outdated, the seats were uncomfortable, the food was barely edible, and the movie selection was almost as outdated as the plane. There was one flight attendant who was extremely rude as well"
Pros: "Helpful staff at the gate & on the flight"
Cons: "I usually like airline food in economy class - this trip we splashed out & upgraded to business class & were very disappointed with the food: weird dinner choices which weren’t very flavorful & continental breakfast was dried cold cuts & rubbery cheese. The coffee too tasted like it came from a machine, very odd. I think I’ll stick with economy class - business wasn’t worth the huge extra cost!"
Pros: "Pilots execptional and cabin crew friendly"
Pros: "Really enjoyed the friendliness and humour of the cabin attendants. They even managed to relax passengers during a particularly bumpy patch by pretending to be anxious, when they clearly weren’t!!"
Cons: "All the passengers descended the escalator to the exit door, but then had to crowd together at the base of the escalator before being permitted to leave the terminus to walk to the aircraft. This could be dangerous if too many people have to get down the escalator and need to find a space to stand"
Pros: "Crew was fine as usual. People are always welcoming and accommodating."
Cons: "I'm going to sound like the old joke, "The food here isn't what it used to be." "And neither are the portions!" It's a long-haul flight, though, so there ought to be more snacks and variety. I was in the front third of the economy cabin, and by the time they reached me they'd run out of 2 of the 3 choices, and the remaining one, a beef goulash, was probably 2 ounces of meat, plus fake mashed potatoes and frozen vegetables cooked to the usual imperfection. Another container had a side of orzo, probably 1.5 ounces, and there was a snack-sized Snickers. That was it until breakfast about 12 hours later on a flight that took off at 10:40 am local time."
Cons: "Webjet booked the tickets wrong and put 2 tickets into 1 persons name. We had to spend $1500 to buy a second ticket to the same flight because the travel agent was not willing to fix the issue in time for the flight take off. We went to the airport 3 hours early to make sure of no issues! And then we had to deal with almost missing the flight!!!"
Cons: "Took so long to leave almost missed my connecting flight.0"
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "My luggage was broken into and stolen. They sawed off the zip on my suitcase and broke the handle. Stole a number of personal items including a belt, perfume, t-shirts and cash."
Cons: "Flights were late (maybe out of their control, due to other circumstances). There were no vegetarian options in the meals of either of hte two flights."
Pros: "Staff were friendly."
Cons: "The ventilation in the departure hall is pathetic."
Cons: "Boarding the plane was chaotic and very unorganized. After boarding business class and people with special needs, why can't they board from the back of the plane a few rows at a time? It would make more sense and there would be less pushing and shoving. A lot of people were rushing to get to the gate all at once!"
Cons: "Their aircrafts are dirty"
Pros: "Reasonable space and friendly crew."
Cons: "I paid extra to reserve an aisle seat and the video was out of order. This is a very long flight to be without entertainment."
Cons: "My luggage was "lost" for more than half of my trip and when I finally received it all of my electronic and various other items were stolen."
Pros: "The planes were clean and well maintained."
Pros: "Hospitality wz good Cleanliness inside"
Cons: "All was ok"
Pros: "arrived on time"
Cons: "one of the bathrooms had no water. there were no warning signs not to use it. instead of assisting, the air hostesses just told me to find another bathroom, so I had to run around the plane with soad all over the plane. in general the air hostesses were rude, the area where they were resting was dirty with paper lying all over the floor. the aircraft is really basic and old."
Pros: "no zones, so when they call the flight, first in line with a ticket gets to board first"
Cons: "There is no jet way/loading bridge connected to the terminal so you walk outside to reach your aircraft. Our boarding took place on a nice day but if the weather was poor then you would be subjected to that environment,"
Pros: "I got help with the boarding pass and once on the plane was very impressed with the comfort of the interior and cleanliness of the plane. I would definitely fly with that airline again."
Pros: "The service was excellent"
Cons: "The food was poor - relevant to other SAA flights. The boarding was ok, but take off was delayed by 2 hours."
Pros: "This was a quick flight and similar to domestic flights in the US."
Pros: "The gave us lots of water"
Cons: "Old plain, lost my one mine bags, missing items"
Cons: "My flight was delayed from Harare. I almost missed my connecting flight out of Joburg. Had to run not to miss it and I am 74years old."
Cons: "Seats were so small and squashed on lax to jhb flight 16 hours Zero way to charge devices - no usb etc Very few of the entertainment consoles actually worked Food poor Help yourselves to water which was nowhere to be found Lost our baggage not once but twice No help rebooking connectors after SAA delayed our flight from Harare for 2 hours - took us 3 days to get home"
Cons: "Good, chairs"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was firstly delayed by 1h35. Business class was nothing but economy class with a choice of substandard food choice. Very Disappointed in SAA"
Pros: "Full food service in economy and spacious seat"
Pros: "Price and time schedule"
Cons: "Our flight time moved up one hour and no one notified me. If I wasn't at the airport early I would have missed my flight and my connection"
Pros: "I liked that the attendants were very helpful. The flight was smooth. We had a bumpy take off. The landing was smooth. We got in Joburg a little late but we made it"
Cons: "The immigration staff in SA wasn't nice at all. They were very harsh and apathetic. Then we got delayed so bad when some other guy locked himself out with his car in the tarmac. We ended up being delayed all the way and we missed our flight from DC to Chicago. On our way to Harare our suitcases were missing. We had to incur more expenses in the city coming back to the airport , we got charged $148 on top of that by the Harare immigration guys and we had to spend a lot in the restaurant because of that"
Pros: "Clean modern cabin and professional flight crew."
Cons: "Special order meal not delivered without explanation. Meal not on board when inquired about it."
Cons: "Entertainment system had to be re-booted and when they got it working, my system would not work in my seat at all. Made for a very long and miserable flight home."
Pros: "The crew was professional and polite once on board."
Cons: "They changed the gate without making any announcement, then lost my luggage. Not exactly a crowd-pleaser."
Pros: "Crew were friendly. Flight was smooth arrived on time. Nice selection of movies."
Cons: "Stingy with amount of meals snacks given was starving. You needed to ask for water at times it was not often given."
Pros: "Funny and competent in very windy weather"
Cons: "The audio on my TV didn't work, it was very muffled. I understand that it was probably a technical problem, but for a 15-hour flight, I really would have liked to have been able to watch a movie!"
Pros: "Nothing -"
Cons: "We arrived at the airport on Sunday noon and airline staff informed us that we could not get on the plane, because we didn't have the yellow fever vaccine. When we bought the flight you didn’t warn us that this was a requirement. We had to pay 1000 usd additional to change the flights, plus 1000 usd for the hotel to stay in Sao Pablo for the days that I must be here, plus the fee for the change in the reservation in Johannesburg. THIS WOULD NEVER HAVE HAPPENED IF I HAD BOUGHT MY FLIGHTS IN A TRADITIONAL AGENCY! It happened to me for trusting you and your services on the Internet!"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "I am a foodie, so airline food probably will never meet my demands but I thought the food was very good for the time and place ."
Cons: "Same plane as the previous flight, so the same comment holds true: "My seat cushion had very little padding which after a few hours became conspicuously apparent. I think they need new seats on those planes, or perhaps just some reupholstering.""
Pros: "The crew was attentive and friendly. The flight was short but service was friendly and good."
Cons: "The boarding and disembarking in JNB. Not the fault of the airline it is just how things are accomplished in JNB with small a/c."
