Airline reviews

Pros: "attentive crews, clean toilets"
Cons: "waited for 2 hours upon immigration clearance, not sure what was the issue. ground handling only updated there was a delay. baggage didn't get loaded onto carousel until 2 hours after landing. horrible"

Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "Food wasn't that great."

Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Perfect"

Cons: "They do not understand the word priority at Doha airport. Business class passengers boarded last."

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: "Food and being ontime"
Cons: "Seats are too hard"

Pros: "Easy and efficient boarding process, great Tv episodes selection"
Cons: "Staff was slow to remove plates after eating"

Pros: "Food and leg room"
Cons: "All was fine"

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Longer wifi time and faster connection"

Cons: "Seats were so close together that when the person in front of me leaned back, my personal screen was inches from my face. Then when it was time to get the seats back up - none moved - they all had to be pulled up by many people."

Cons: "The vegetarian option for breakfast was a stale waffle with apple compote. Inedible."

Pros: "crew was nice and helpful"
Cons: "food quality needs to be better food quantity needs to be increased slightly food options need to be better entertainment system was ok but content was mediocre."

Pros: "Food selection. However, the snacks need to be readily available on long flights."
Cons: "Entertainment is lacking behind other international carriers"

Pros: "Great experience"

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 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: "Helpful Qatar Airways passenger assistant at check-in."

Pros: "Staff was great"

Pros: "Thank you for a very good flight experience both from Philadelphia to Doha and Doha to Johannesburg."
Cons: "The breakfast options could have been better, but I was fed and happy, and the flight attendant was kind enough to bring me green tea when it wasn’t readily available on the cart."

Pros: "The insight service was good. Kind and welcoming attitude of the stewards are appreciated. There was no guile but genuine"
Cons: "Answers from the staff was felt by me from the time I checked in Dallas to Bangalore and back.I will travel again by Qatar airways only. Please buy the air India inc ."

Pros: "process quick and efficient"
Cons: "average seats"

Pros: "On time flights, orderly boarding, plenty of room for carry on luggage, no overcrowding, connection through Doha airport was nice as it is not crowded and has plenty of shopping options."
Cons: "Too many crying babies on board, food was just okay, crew were also just okay, entertainment system didn’t always work, cut out well before landing and took forever to reset."

Pros: "Great"
Cons: "Nothing."

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."

Cons: "Good service"

Pros: "Crew courtesy, exceptional service"

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: "The aircraft was new, the flight was empty and the flight attendants were extremely attentive! It was great. Wish I had the same experience on the previous flight."
Cons: "The food ,however, was disappointing again."

Pros: "I freceuntly fly between the US and South Africa and only fly via Qatar Airways, and every experience thus far has been great. The food is good quality, friendly crew and I would recommend it to anyone."

Pros: "Comfort of the seat/bed"

Pros: "طيران ممتاز"

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: "A shorter flight after long one and a short connection in Doha. Amazing crew, offering lots of help with my baby, again plenty of food, quite tasty, we have been offered seconds and flight wasn't full :) this time in a bassinette row which was a bliss for at least some of the time."
Cons: "The bassinette row seats were quite narrow and less comfortable, again the entertainment options dissapointing."

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."
Cons: "I did not have wifi available from Doha-Johannesburg"

Pros: "Great on board bar"

Pros: "service, cleanliness"
Cons: "seats too narrow, but understandable"

Pros: "Quality of foods and service"

Pros: "Actually I can't even explain everything is good"

Cons: "I checked in a couple of hours after checkin open but unfortunately I could not get my preferred window seat, got a middle instead. But still the leg room would have been ok but the middle seat (second row behind the bilkhead row) had the front passenger's entertainment system arranged across the footwell, not sideways, so it completely blocked the footwell and prevented any stretching of the legs. I am a tall passenger and this caused much discomfort on the flight, I had to keep getting up to walk around. I also found the seat bottom quite uncomfortable (not enough padding I think), butnghis could have been made worse by the footwell issue. Regards Neil"

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."

When my parents were checking in for flight they asked the representative about meal selection and she didn't answer their questions properly and because of that my mom didn't get proper Hindu Vegetarian food on flight instead she got Egg omelet which she couldn't eat. She has to eat just fruits. My mother is a diabetic patient and she needs a food every after some time. I never had such a bad experience before with any other airlines."

Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable and there was enough room for hand baggage. I slept during the flight so do not have opinion on entertainment."

Pros: "Excellent experience with the cabin crew."
Cons: "Seats on the 777 were too narrow. This 777 had a 3-4-3 seating arraignment, it would have been better with a 3-3-3, similar to a 787 configuration. With the current layout, even with an aisle seat, I was sitting in the aisle. And I am not a large person! The flight was full, so use the 787 and two daily non-stops. For a twelve hour flight, the food was only Okay, could have been better and with a better selection. Meal timing was poor."

Pros: "The flight was great."

Cons: "A snack upon arriving"

Pros: "modern plane, large overhead bins, comfy seat with adjustable headrest, very good entertainment system"
Cons: "There was a broken restroom on the plane in the main section, so then, they should keep an eye on the remaining restrooms as they get dirtier sooner. Madrid barajas airport is an ordeal, Iberia needs to explain better that passport control happens when you get to terminal 4S on the tram AND then there are TWO more passport controls. then there isn't enough space for people to line up for the various groups, creating friction. Iberia just needs to be more organized."

Cons: "Crew was rude and the seats had astoundingly little leg room. Plus they tried to upcharge for everything. Will never fly with this airline again."

Cons: "If kayak didn’t take me to a page where the reservation was different than what I agreed on. Not even close to what I had selected, leading me to believe I was booking a trip on the days I chose and then not realizing it was incorrect until my trip was starting. This is the last time I use kayak."

Pros: "The crew in my area were very helpful. The young guy next to me passed on the dinner choices. The crew member came back and asked if he would like some pretzels, etc. which I thought was very nice. They were very friendly."
Cons: "Just a suggestion that the ear jacks for the entertainment be passed out earlier. Luckily I brought my own but my neighbors on both sides had a long wait until they were passed out."

Cons: "Crew need to be smile - we not in Russia"

Cons: "Awful awful baggage collection in Madrid - longer than. One hour"

Pros: "Iberia cancelled my incoming flight to Madrid and put me on an earlier one, but refused to let me on the earlier flight to Bilboa, which made a long waiting time!"

Cons: "The attention to the passengers by the flight attendants. This applies only to one attendant that was not very helpful"

Cons: "The seat was very uncomfortable. There were only two beverage services, at meal times, and the water pours were maybe 4oz. After 8 hours, I was pretty thirsty."

Pros: "Gfggfgggvfvfvfgfdhygtgdhfffdcdcf"
Cons: "Gbhbhfhyhyugfrrfffffgggffccxccccvvgfcvgvggbbvvgcvvv. B"

Pros: "Good, quick flight!"

Pros: "First flight ever where water or coffee we’re not offered. Good cart came out. Nothing offered. 3 attendants? To do what??"
Cons: "No beverage or food offered"

Pros: "Service!"

Pros: "Left on time."
Cons: "Plane is extremely old and should be put to sleep. Business class on this plane means younger an empty middle seat and narrow standard seats. Not worth it for business, check airplane model before you book."

Cons: "The crew was rude and Inattentive. They keep the cabin so cold, most people more miserable and had their blankets all they way up to their necks, and still cold. Seats were very thin and not very comfortable and so close together, there's was no room to stretch out at all."

Pros: "EVERYTHING AS PROMISED . ALL WENT THROUGH IN A SMOOTH AND TIMELY WAY"
Cons: "TRAVELING IN COACH ON A LONG HAUL FLIGHT IS A NECESSARY EVIL"

Pros: "Check-in was fast and efficient in Boston. Crew was friendly with good service."
Cons: "No legroom. If they're giving this little legroom they shouldn't allow seats to recline."

Pros: "I liked the in flight entertainment system. The food was good also and, the flight attendants."
Cons: "The legroom was not that good, but it was ok. Overall it was ok"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight from Iberia, operated by AA and finaly no flight!!!!!"

Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "Confusion at boarding gate with different groups being called with no clarity - overpriced for 1 way Trip"

Pros: "Attendants were pleasant and it was wuick"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"

Pros: "Flight amenities were great! When I discovered my passport was missing at my connection in London, John, the rep made calls to track it down where I left it in the tub at the security check point! He then walked with me to get it and then to re-book my flight since I had missed my scheduled flight......and there was no charge for the new flight! Unheard of in this day and age."
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "Very hard to get any information about connective flights. I had 1 hour between the flights and I asked the assistant at the passport control to help me to get through, she said that everyone needs to stay in the same line. I pushed myself through, which I never do, and run all the way to the gate, and hardly made my flight. It is very hard to get any information because most employees don't speak English. I will never fly with Iberia again. I would rather pay more and fly with another company. I was very upset about my flying experience."

Pros: "it got me to Madrid!"
Cons: "no legroom. the flight crew didn't look happy....they don't smile??"

Cons: "Did not offer water and seats were very uncomfortable."

Pros: "Very nice crew"

Pros: "surprisingly smooth transition with enough time to make all connections.."
Cons: "wish I would have been informed of imports not allowed but more my bad..."

Pros: "The dinner that was served wasn't terrible"
Cons: "Took forever to get off the plane. The movie choices were mediocre. Could have used a little bit more leg room."

Pros: "The flying crew was OK."
Cons: "The company is not good on following schedules, jeopardizing people's duties and responsibilities. Definitely not recommending this company to anyone!"

Cons: "There were no vegetarian/pescatarian meals available so I literally ate bread rolls for dinner & the tv audio was broken. I paid $40 for 45 MB of WIFI so that I could work and the internet lasted about 10 minutes. i couldn't even send an email within that time. The tv screen itself kept flipping back down to the aisle. Finally, the temperature was freezing & the bathrooms were disgusting."

Pros: "Always great service on Iberia."
Cons: "My only complaint, and it's frequently the case with Iberia, is that the cabin is always very cold. Thanks for the blankets, though!"

Pros: "I liked the Crew they were very patient with all the passengers. They were bunch of really annoying kids in front of me and handled them very professionally."
Cons: "I didn't like that I could not control the air in business class. I spent good money to sit up there and I would expect to have control of the air because I had a 11 hr flight in a 90 degree plane. It was really a uncomfortable. Also I didn't like that their was no sporting events or cooking channels to watch on my flight and the movie selection were horrible."

Pros: "This wa a short, one hour flight. it's hard to rate the experience with a flight this short."

Cons: "my bag was lost"

Cons: "Average"

Cons: "Everyone who was traveling with someone was separated and the Customes right before the bus were extremely rude."

Pros: "Very good food overall. Picking up utensils a little slow. Good coffee. Lavatories were accessible at all times. I was able to get aisle seat without a hassle. Good movie selection l. Movie quality itself was disappointing l."

Pros: "Most all aspects were excellent"
Cons: "The main food serving was OK. The light serving was not. It was a thin slice of turkey ham inside a piece of bread. Also no small snacks available during the flight. The WiFi is a great idea however it did not work for me. It is a good thing I only paid for the 4.99 euro option."

Pros: "On time experience."
Cons: "Tight quarters, I'm 6'2". No free coffee options."

Cons: "Seats do not recline. Not even water was offered."

Cons: "Hard to see how anything could have been done about this, but on my flight every seat was taken (except the one next to me) so I thought I'd have a little extra leg room....NOT!!! Then a 300-lb guy sits in the seat next to me. So for 11 hours I'm trapped by this guy's huge bulk and it was difficult to move my legs around any; very unpleasant. And I paid $45 to get that window seat instead of my original seat that had been randomly assigned!! I wish that airlines provided a couple seats for tall people, because our height is a kind of disability given the cramped seating (which average height people complain about)."

Pros: "The seat was comfortable ONLY because I am Platinum member ( and I was able to choose emergency exit seat ) otherwise it wouldn’t have been so comfortable"
Cons: "Food"

Cons: "No screens on this aircraft"

Pros: "I didn't fly throw the Kenyan airlines because they kept delaying my flight time and they want to spend 24 hours at the airport because of my wife is passports is not american passport, so I had to change the flight , the worst experience ever in my flight life"

Pros: "Seats super comfortable"
Cons: "Real food and not just snack"

Pros: "Service was perfect"

Pros: "Easy going flight with friendly and hospitable crew"
Cons: "Plane was quite dirty inside and out"

Pros: "Good approachable crew. Very professional. Aircraft very modern and internal atmosphere very organized. Everything where it’s meant to be."
Cons: "Difficult when you’re tall to have better seating."

Cons: "The breakfast was a donut and roll so no protein or healthy option."

Pros: "yes"
Cons: "not really"

Cons: "According to the KQ App the flight was direct to Cape Town but when we got to the airport we found the plane was stopping in Livingston’s. The result was we were an hour late. Most annoying. Surely the App can be amended to alert us of such changes"

Cons: "The person ushering us out of the gate was not very friendly and that could need some work"

Pros: "I liked their service and more so, there orange juice"
Cons: "Since this was a short flight , I don’t have much comment."

Pros: "Friendly staff."

Cons: "Old planes and little entertainment"

Pros: "The best flight attendants who met my needs with prompt, positive, politeness. Again, my highest regards for Kenya Airways!"

Pros: "The flight services were good but with two major horrible issues:"
Cons: "1. It took almost one week after my arrival to trace my checked-in baggage. Horrible indeed. Moreover, the baggage contained my medications and other valuables which I needed on ongoing basis! Very disappointing! 2. Despite being charged for the full fare as indicated online, Kenya Airways charged my debit card an additional fee of $31.19. I thought the amount that I had paid to KAYAK was final? I will NEVER dare use such a travel agent engine again in future!"

Cons: "Timing schedule not respected. No legroom my knees were so squeezed."

Pros: "The nice landing."
Cons: "Food which was the same as previous flight. We, at back, were told there was only the vegetarian option left for breakfast. We all declined. Later we were brought non-vegetarian food ie had a 'poached egg' on it. This was marginally better. Also, I couldn't use 'entertainment' as connection in arm rest bad. Occasionally, on testing, it worked briefly."

Pros: "Service excellent, flight on-time."
Cons: "Only 3 movies to choose from?!"

Cons: "Poor Service. Did not care attitude."

Cons: "Late take off, no concern for transfer at Nairobi - consequently we nearly missed our connection to London and our luggage did not!"

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

Pros: "It was fine."

Pros: "Food. The pilot spent some time flying over the Victoria falls"
Cons: "Dirty bathroom"

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: "- Short flight - Clean flight"
Cons: "- Food minimal in size and quality - Little manners staff"

Pros: "- plane was empty so I could sit in the exit seats with more legroom. - staff in the plane was extremely nice. - Pilot avoided turbulence zones."
Cons: "- Smelly cabin - Unfriendly boarding crew - Food"

Cons: "Lack of drink options, no diet cola?! Poor entertainment options"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Equipment, old plane with hard seats, no entertainment."

Pros: "Food and service"

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

Pros: "KQ is the best East African airline by far. The planes are newer and cleaner and the flight attendants really do make an effort to give a high-level of customer service. I've missed my transfer due to a weather delay before and was impressed with KQs attention to getting me overnight accommodation. It would be great if we could sort out the regular delays of KQ410 into Entebbe which directly impacts KQ411 back out to NBO. The regular delays are often due to weather but just as often due to scheduling or flight issues. Delaying that flight makes my transfers really tight and adds some stress to my experience, especially with the extra security level in Nairobi. If we could find a way to fast track transfers, that would be an improvement. Overall, KQ is the best, but please continue to find ways to be better."

Pros: "Even though the flight was delayed, I still made it to the airport in a reasonable time."
Cons: "The headphone jack in my seat had a broken jack in it and I wasn't able to enjoy the in flight entertainment"

Pros: "Full flat bed Big windows New plane"
Cons: "10h delay very basic food (especially for business class) Basic service level No side treat"

Cons: "Delays"

Pros: "Service by one attendant Helen- courteous and helpful with Dufree"
Cons: "Services by male attendant very deplorable, lacks courtesy to clients. Old aircraft with overhead TV screens showing only one channel or flight route. In this age and time, KQ can do better for the obscene amounts we pay. Flight plan changed and we were not informed till we entered the plane."

Pros: "Crew and food"
Cons: "Hour late even though we had a late arrival of 1:35 am. Made us miss our airport transfer so it took over 2.5 hours to get to hotel"

Pros: "The in-flight crew were wonderful!"
Cons: "I was told to get my boarding pass at the counter, and when I did so, I was consistently told how wrong I was. They moved gates, and didn't update the screen or airport-wide monitors. A staff member didn't come get the 30+ passengers until 15 minutes before. One of my two bags didn't make it to the airport. After working with a very unfriendly airport worker, I was told it would be delivered to my hotel by 8 am. The receptionist told me tha they left a message, saying I could pick it up at the airport."

Pros: "All 4 of us were upgraded to business class on this 5 hour flight on the KQ Dreamliner 787. Very good seat, service and pre departure lounge in NBO."

Cons: "My laguages did not arrived and delay on both doigt. I missed my connexion to Mumbay from Nairobi on 3rd. Therefore, I missed my unchageablble flight to my final destination. I had to buy last minute ticket for Bangkok-Koh Samui which was very pricy! Any compensation so I'm feeling very unhappy!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "This airline and this flight were horrific. See my previous review for Rwandaair, on the same ticket."

Pros: "I was a little late at the airport but they still accepted to take my luggage in, tagging it manually at the departure gate. Props to the KQ crew on the ground!"

Pros: "Spacious business class, new planes, lovely service"
Cons: "Bag was lost - but showed up intact two days later"
