Pros: "Well organized on check in. Attentive"
Pros: "New plane, fresh feel. Food is ok."
Cons: "Airline feels basic and no frills."
Pros: "Crew members are extremely polite and friendly. Flight was delayed leaving Kigali captain spoke to each passenger and apologise - great professionalism."
Cons: "Entertainment was limited."
Pros: "Took the newly opened route between Cape Town and Harare. Was a great experience. Thanks to RwandAir it is easier and cheaper to fly directly between these African cities. Lots of potential on the route. RwandAir really opening up business and leisure opportunities much needed in these areas. Nice to avoid Tambo airport."
Cons: "Both flights were slightly delayed (which happens), information about the delay could be better at Harare airport. But no biggy."
Pros: "The Flight attendants are all awesome and undesrtanding...and the open wifi ate Kigali airport was great."
Cons: "No vegetarian option Bad boarding procedures, no one gets direction and it was very slow"

Pros: "Food and in-flight services"
Cons: "Entertainment package"
Pros: "The crew members are very polite and professional"
Cons: "The food is not very nice, the drink is don’t taste so great either . The airline seats are too small"
Pros: "The planes and shuttles are nice and clean, and the staff are pleasant. I had a long layover in Kigali and the airline gave me accommodation and a food voucher (totally unexpected). Will definitely fly RwandAir again."
Pros: "Food and free WiFi. Ample seating space."
Cons: "Rerouted through Dar-es-Salaam at last minute rather than being a direct flight as scheduled"
Pros: "They respect the timing"
Cons: "The luggage escalator is not working and you have to carry it from one point to another..."
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"

Cons: "There wasn't much not to like."
Pros: "Friendly staff, decent snacks and entertainment options"
Pros: "The plane was nice and the captain gave good info."
Cons: "Why was dinner served at 2AM? They woke me up three times to serve drinks and food and the cabin lights were never turned off, for an overnight flight! The Kigali airport waiting area is awful, and the holding area made it so that every child had to use the bathroom as soon as we boarded."
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"
Cons: "The airline moved my original non-stop flight forward by 3 hours. The new flight conflicted with another flight I had earlier in the day. The airline would not allow me to cancel the flight, and could only offer me a 1-stop flight that arrived at my destination hours after my initial flight would have arrived."
Pros: "Everything was on time and comfortable. Will take the same flight again in the future."
Pros: "Good food, friendly and professional staff, a new and sparkling clean plane, swift retrieval of luggage upon arrival in Kigali. Thank you!"
Pros: "The crew was very welcoming"
Cons: "We had a delay of 40 minutes at Kigali airport without prior announcement"
Pros: "Overall comfort and staff friendliness"
Cons: "Landing was a bit turbulent"
Pros: "Flight was delayed over an hour. Otherwise the plane was new, everything felt good, and I have nothing to complain about!"
Pros: "The staff at the airports were friendly."
Cons: "After thorough check (and hours at the airport) at the holiday destination, Dubai, my luggage was deemed lost. The DXB lost luggage staff helped me complete a 'lost luggage' report. However, the staff member told me that 'if' RwandAir found my luggage, I would be responsible for going to the airport as RwandAir does not have lost luggage delivery like most airlines. For the six days of my holiday, I waited for phone calls and checked emails expecting to hear from RwandAir. I heard nothing, RwandAir had made no effort of any kind to locate my luggage they had mishandled. Upon flying back home, I checked with the initial airport (DXB), the transit airport (Kigali), and my final destination airport (Brazzaville). My luggage was not in any of the airports mentioned. In each airport, and the RwandAir office at the Brazzaville airport, I presented the initial lost luggage form from the prior week and it was apparent that nobody, no airport, and no office was interested in finding my luggage. RwandAir, at no point, apologized for losing my belongings or in any way attempted to make up for seriously harming my holiday- not to mention the fact that it appears I will never see my possessions that were last seen being taken by RwandAir staff at the beginning of my holiday travels."
Pros: "New plane, friendly crew"
Cons: "Cramped seating, poor signage & boarding announcements"
Pros: "Like Kigali it was clean and efficient."
Cons: "Food is almost inedible"
Cons: "Time management"
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: "Clean, comfortable plane and seating. On time service, courteous attendants. A meal served on a flight that was only about an hour in duration - very nice. Very pleased with this airline."
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"
Cons: "We were delayed by 1 hour because more cargo was being loaded on to the plane. When we arrived in Kigali, we found that our bags had been left behind to make room for other cargo. We arrived and checked in well before the 1 hour cutoff and we were under the weight limit, so there was no reason for our baggage to be left behind. We were informed that our bags would NOT be delivered to us at our next destination, that the burden was on us to retrieve them AND there was no stipend or any type of refund to compensate us for the inconvenience. Since we were continuing our travel by road to Uganda, we had to pay extra to have a driver return to the airport the next day to retrieve and deliver our bags. This is very, very poor customer service!"
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: "The Rwandair plane was modern and clean. Kigali airport has a nice cafe, and check-in was efficient. The plane left a few minutes early."
Cons: "Check-in closes one hour before your flight. Economy class: Food was a clingwrapped sandwich. The attendant gave me two bottles of a good South African wine. Security has gotten quite uptight at Kigali airport. They now stop your cab a couple hundred meters short of the airport, and have a dog check the vehicle. You have to pass through another security checkpoint at the entry to the airport building, and a third security into the boarding area. The final security check even takes away any empty bottles you have. And don't take any fingernail scissors in your handcarry, even if they have blunt points. You may have an hour or more wait in preboarding, and without water or bathroom excess. So takke care of these needs in advance."
Pros: "Orderly, organized, courteous"
Pros: "They have great food, amazing crew, great customer care.."
Cons: "No entertainment, some few crew members has a bit of an attitude."
Pros: "Friendly staff, comfortable business class seat with lots of room, good breakfast"
Cons: "No priority checkin for business class and no priority boarding for business class. I don't those are even that hard to organize . Airport ground contractors haven't been instructed to provide service to business class?"
Pros: "It was a short flight and all went well. We even had time for a snack."
No one appreciated anything on the flight. From 9:30 am to From Accra to Monrovia was a complete nonsense.
Pros: "The air line could not find my luggage"
Pros: "We got to whole destination safely"
Cons: "Once in Abidjan, it became a mess. First we were left waiting for over an hour without any explanation. Then we were told that we had to retrieve our baggage and then recheck them. Hardly anyone spoke English so that was a long and confusing ordeal. Then we loaded on a bus, asked to get off after a while because our flight was delayed, left waiting some more with minimal information before we eventually got on the last leg of the flight. It was a mess."
Cons: "Very disorganized at the airport of Abidjan with mutliplr but useless checkings. It was a tota mess at the security checking. The flight was delayed for 1 h"
Cons: "Boarding was okay though it took longer than 1h. The flight was delayed for 30 minutes because the engine to start it was not functional. Very strangr"
Pros: "I read bad review after bad review of Air Côte d'Ivoire prior to flying them, and so approached this flight with trepidation. To my pleasant surprise, everything went off without a hitch: orderly boarding and on-time departure; comfy & clean new planes; delicious in-flight meal with wine; efficient disembarkation in Dakar with prompt, hassle-free baggage claim. ZERO complaints. This airline is great - don't be like me, book without hesitation!"
Cons: "NOTHING - everything was flawless. Thank you!!"
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "Flights are always delayed and boarding is disorganized. No communication"
Pros: "Never on time"
Cons: "Flights are always delayed and boarding is disorganized. No communication"
Cons: "Poor comfort and poor seats No entertainment"
Cons: "They changed our return time and added an extra hour layover."
Pros: "Great service once we boarded."
Pros: "Flight was booked as direct abidjan to Ouagadougou on the 8th, then back on 10 th but in fact went past to Niamey then back to Ouagadougou, completely disorganizing all previously made arrangements and without prior warning! Quite unacceptable, as this was a repeat performance of what occurred the previous day, and was obviously planned, yet we were not informed. I will say your flight attendants are pleasant and professional."
Cons: "Lack of communication"
Pros: "Smooth and fast. No problems or complications. Nice that we were served a small meal. Delicious!"
Pros: "Boarding on time, nothing as problem, crew did good job and the food was also okay."
Pros: "2 easy flights. Nice service."
Cons: "There is only 1 hr to connect to next flight (both Niamey-Dakar and Dakar Niamey). With the security check in Abidjan, I think the connecting flight waits for the arriving flight but that is never stated so all the passengers heading to Dakar from Niamey and Niamey from Dakar were stressed, thinking, as they waited in the security lines, that they were going to miss their connection. A small point but could you add Coca Lite or Coca Net Zero to your choices?"
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly and very helpful"
Cons: "Lack of information on flight that was delayed. No seat numbers were provided. It was a free for all"
Cons: "After I took & completed the flight the airline said the ticket had not been paid for! How can the cost be dusted from my account and I not have it paid for ?"
Cons: "Old aircraft Food quality more and more an issue No special arrangements at departure and arrival for business class"
Cons: "Schedule means little to the airline. A 16:30 flight non-stop from Monrovia Robertsfield to Abidjan was turned into a 14:30 flight from Monrovia to Freetown to Aidjan. I had flown the airline a few weeks before--and a nonstop Abidjan-Lome flight became an Abidjan-Cotonou-Lome flight. An airline that plays fast and loose with scheduling is an airline that will not last long."
Pros: "Airline helped my make connection that I would normally have missed"
Cons: "They changed the flight itinerary at the last minute - departing 2 hours early, yet reaching my destination an hour late (because they inserted an extra destination in between). But the airline held the 2nd flight and made sure my bags were transferred."
Pros: "The crew members were good and courteous."
Cons: "The food and the fact that we delayed"
Pros: "The flying was smooth."
Cons: "No tv;only a little sandwitch."
Pros: "New airplane. OK crew."
Cons: "food (looks and taste cheap)"
Cons: "Toilet was very dirty No vegetarian food option"
Pros: "The service was friendly and attentive"
Cons: "The flight was advertised as direct. I paid more than a earlier ticket assuming it was get me there faster. The 1.5 flight took 4.5 hours and I missed an important call."
Cons: "The food was not good. I could not eat the hard bread that was the main stuff to eat."
Cons: "My scheduled return flight was canceled and I was not notified. The arilines did nothing for us. They didn't put us in a hotel, nor did they give meal vouchers - NOTHING! All they said was that I hadn't given any contact details so it was not their fault. This airline has NO CARE for their customers! They had my phone number and e-mail address. No matter, they should have taken care of us!"
Pros: "Flight was on time. No issues with boarding or disembarking. No complaints."
Cons: "No beverages provided but was only a short 45 min flight."
Cons: "The carrier changed the schedule without notifying me. I was left at the airport without any assistance from Air I'voire. They didn't put us in a hotel, they didn't give us meal vouchers, they ha no care or concern for me and my wife, and two other people in the same situation. I have never had an experience like this!"
Pros: "Friendly crew, serious company"
Cons: "smell and aspect of the plane (dirty). did they ever clean the carpet since they received the plane?. take off time change the day before (30 mn later than expected) + extra 45 minutes delay the day of travel."

Pros: "seat not comfortable"
Cons: "more drinks along the way"
Pros: "flight was on time"

Pros: "Very conformable and quiet."
Cons: "Nothing very nice flight."
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Staff needs to be briefed on what an insulin pump is."
Pros: "The boarding was superb."

Pros: "They are nice and friendly"
Cons: "Toilets should be cleaned often"
Cons: "Spent 10 hours in a broken seat... wouldn’t recline. Screen on next seat was broken so I couldn’t move there. Bathroom out of toilet paper and at the end of the flight there was SO MUCH TRASH AND STUFF EVERYWHERE it looked like the ground at an outside 3 day concert. I’ve never seen such a filthy plane. And the food needs improvement."
Cons: "Flight was delayed so many times, without reason given. On arrival in New Delhi, the airline lost my bag. Everything about this experience was really bad."
Pros: "Flight time changed without notice. Delays in Medinah caused us to miss our connecting flight to Johannesburg. Really poor communication. No agents would take calls in Jeddah. Really terrible service. Would avoid using this airline at all cost. Not the first time I've been delayed by them"
Cons: "Flight time changed without notice. Delays in Medinah caused us to miss our connecting flight to Johannesburg. Really poor communication. No agents would take calls in Jeddah. Really terrible service. Would avoid using this airline at all cost. Not the first time I've been delayed by them"

Pros: "Seats are reasonably comfortable with sufficient storage space Food was OK"
Cons: "Chech in was poor - didn’t have priority stickers for business class luggage. Had to go to different counter for hotel voucher. Overall not good and professional Didn’t have ice on the plane ( for drinks, water etc)"

Cons: "No entertainment available. Rude flight attendants."
Pros: "New plane fantastic cabin"
Cons: "There was a fight but nothibg to do with the flight crew just some passenger with mental issues"
Cons: "They didn’t announce when boarding started/what zones were to go."
Pros: "Amazingly smooth flight and landing."
Cons: "The whole thing was a disaster. I lost my connection flight due to incompetence from the Ethiopian airlines representative"
Cons: "At the Addis airport, it seems chaos reigns! My flight was never listed on any display to say what gate we departed from. A crowd of people boarding for two different planes just rushed the gate area. I’ve got no idea how everyone ended up on the right plane. My flight was never announced I had to keep going up to ask over and over. The bathrooms at the airport are unhygienic and the available food is abysmal. On the plane was better except that the only entertainment is over head screens that didn’t work my overnight flight was miserable as the lights were on the whole time and they repeatedly woke me up to eat throughout the flight. I’ll do what I can to avoid the Addis airport from now on."
Pros: "Everything Kosher food was excellent"
Pros: "The crew where very pleasant, The service on the plane was good you had a choice of what meal you would like to have you also had a choice of any movie or entertainment that you would like to see or play there was more leg space and much more comfortable seating"

Cons: "The chairs in economy do not give sufficient leg room especially for tall persons, this would present a challenge on long haul"
Pros: "Spacious, good entertainment system"
Cons: "Transit at Bole International is awful. No gates for aircraft to dock which seems to be a common problem these days, slowing down the boarding and alighting processes."
Pros: "Great Price Excellent dinner in economy for such a short flight (1.45) Quick, friendly service"
Cons: "Entertainment System is a tad bit outdated on this particular aircraft (737-8) but it was a shorthaul flight and their long haul flights have much better option. \ My seat - although in the exit row (with plenty of leg room) was uncomformable"
Cons: "My phone was stolen on airport premises"
Pros: "the air craft was very good and the comfort is good no complain..."
Cons: "i did'n't like some of the cabin crew the way they are ....and am very disappointed from kinshasa to my check in i did ask a lady about my bag, she told me i will get my bag to cape straight, and i did ask her two times about the bag, she keep saying the same thing i will get my bag to cape town, so until now i haven't find my bag yet, the number they gave me from the airport no body pic up the phone, so i don't know what i can i do to get my bag......if you can hep me in this mater please contact me on my email or on my cell number 0027 78 470 6195. thank you your best regards."
Pros: "Food was fantastic for such a short flight. It essentially ticks most of the boxes I would be concerned with for a flight of this length."

Pros: "Great crew, decent food"
Pros: "Comfortable flight, pleasant airline attendants."
Pros: "Very helpful, attentive and kind cabin staff."
Cons: "Somewhat dirty ( and smelly ) aircraft even though they are a very new fleet. Some seats had strange patches and stains. Overall cabin experience can be improved in terms of hygiene and food quality ( food was mediocre or slightly worse). Seat ahead reclines almost too much into personal space in the new 787 aircraft. The LCD displays don't pivot so it's virtually impossible to view the entertainment when the occupant of the seat in front fully reclines ( a somewhat irritating issue on a long flight )"
Pros: "Cabin crew were all charming."
Cons: "Unfortunately, I had to request earphones (which were not supplied in the seat pocket in front of me) five times from three different attendants over the course of an hour and a quarter before I was given them. This was not just so I could watch a movie but because the quality of the plane's public address system made it very difficult to listen to the announcements from the captain and the crew. Listening on earphones I was able to hear everything clearly. Why it had to take so long just to give me earphones I don't know."
Pros: "Great service! Friendly and on time!"
Cons: "A mother was put off the plane with her infant because she didn't carry a ticket. Was brought back on at some point we must have a heart no excuses"
