Very crappy crew, very uncomfortable, but good food.

Everything was perfectly fine! The crew members are all polite and generous! The service was first-class! Turkish Airlines is the best of the world!

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Service and food was excellent. Good choice of movies. Also liked the cleaning of bathrooms. Seemed like they cleaned after each person used it. Remarkable."
Pros: "crew on the aircraft was polite and with service attitude ."
Cons: "the flight was almost 2 h late without any explanation from the ground crew whats is going on , why is the aircraft late and what would be with the connection flight in Istanbul. while arrived at Istanbul it was total mass : representative of turkish airlines was waiting and focused on a group from Korea or china , helped them and barely answered other passengers who didnt know what is the status of their connection flight , which was not shown on the screen ( to tel aviv for example ). then it turned out that my flight took off 15 min before and i was approached to turkish desk to get voucher for poor meal at 2.30 am in the morning and a new ticket . that was poor compensation for 2 h delay in BUD and delay to substitute flight that took off on 7:45 am , almost 6 h later in istanbul . i was forced to run at the airport like a mad instead of having a rep of the co , explaining the passengers where to go and get their new flight ticket and not run hundred of meters with no address in the terminal area . that experience was so bad i havent been through for 13 years . i arrived TA after 14.5 h of trip for a flight who to take 4 h net including istanbul - TA ."
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"
Cons: "Checking in on line was not available which invited a standby seat for an overbooked flight that was purchased 5 months ago. Probably Will not use or recommend Turkish airlines in the future."
Pros: "Food was excellent. The built in entertainment from movies to games was amazing! It saves you space from having to pack a bunch of electronics."
Cons: "I always enjoy a window seat but the people next to me didn't get up at all! So I was stuck sitting and didn't have a chance to stretch my legs. Not the airlines fault of course. If you put your seat back a little, it just pushes your knees farther forward."
Pros: "The puntuality funny information video."
Cons: "-"
Pros: "The food was good!"
Cons: "I wish there was more legs room - 11 hours it iss long time to stay in one place"
Cons: "Options for vegetarians were not really good."
Pros: "My flight from Budapest to Istanbul was delayed by weather and heavy flight traffic in Istanbul. At booking time, I had only a 1 hour layover, which I commonly NEVER schedule. Upon arrival at the IST terminal gate, I exited quickly and was met at the end of the runway by a Turkish Airlines customer service rep, permitting me to transit directly to the transit lounge, rather than sending me back through security yet again. As she looked at my boarding pass for the next flight, she knew who I was and she sent me directly to the proper gate for my next flight. Turkish Airlines, you ROCK! (My bag even made the connection!)"

Pros: "including new releases"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed from budapest to Istanbul, causing us to miss our connecting flight to San Francisco. The staff was rude and unhelpful in finding a way home, ultimately sending us to New York City for an overnight layover without hotel accommodations. We had to sleep at the airport for a morning flight to San Francisco, causing us to miss work. This was the worst travel experience of my life."
Pros: "Food drink"
Cons: "Knee room tight"
Pros: "Turkish Airlines is a wonderful airline. The service was excellent and the food was delicious and plentiful. They are organized and helpful. On time and smooth flying and landing."
Cons: "Seats are very tight (for those of us who always have to fly economy). Wish there was more legroom."
Pros: "Everything."
Pros: "Crew and entertainment were above average."
Cons: "The loading process was very long and delayed the flight. It was also very warm on the flight...uncomfortably so."
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."
Pros: "In flight entertainment is great! Good selection of movies, nice screens."
Cons: "No vents at seats on Airbus 300, AC was set at high temp so I was frequently way to warm to be comfortable. This is on both our main flight to Istanbul and our short transfer to Athens. Drink service did not start until 2 1/2 hours into flight. You get what you pay for I suppose. Still 10.5 on a hot plane!!! I usually need a jacket. Food was ...awful."
Cons: "The entertainment system touch is poor. Unable to use when it does not respond correctly"
Cons: "You could be choose food... one of the dish was only pasta... what about the people who's allergic? I am... The business class crew was very stuck up! Totally looked down at people who wasn't in the business class... The Aircraft has no AC that you could adjust air blowing on you! It was incredibly hot the whole time !"
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Inefficiency"
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: "Comfortable seat Good food Great entertainment options USB to charge phone at the seat"
Cons: "Nothing. Excellent experience"
Cons: "The plane was late, we missed our connection. Turkish Airlines also lost our baggage."
Pros: "The service and food"
Cons: "Seats are to cramped."
Pros: "Plane was clean and comfortable. Crew were courteous. Hot sandwich tasted great."
Cons: "N/A"
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."
Cons: "Pathetic vegetarian food. Same pasta was served twice."
Pros: "Not trying to be flattering here but it really is a good airline."
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: "Service and food"
Cons: "Leg room on flight"
Pros: "Crew, plane, entertainment."

Cons: "food"
Pros: "Checking online and reserving seating arrangement."
Cons: "The desk did not open earlier than the other airlines."
Cons: "Crew was not specially caring or interested in me. Food was lousy for business class No in flight personal care "case" Business class check in was a nightmare. They could not issue my boarding pass and it took over half an hour waiting for a solution"
Pros: "Staff was very nice and friendly. Overall, it was a good flight"
Pros: "I really enjoyed the service and in flight entertainment."
Cons: "I wish there was wifi"

When boarding started, it was like refugees rushing to a life boat. Everyone was rushing to the front. Only one KLM staff standing there saying "... now is this group, yours is next,,,, we will call it out...." While he stopped some travelers, he did allowed some others passed without even checking their ticket. They have all the digital gears, and the screens to show the current boarding sequences, why don't they just use that. For some of us that did not have a excellent hearing, it was hard not trying to get closer to understanding what is going on.

New 737 and seats too confining

Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Slow in refuelling, got us delayed for 40-"
Pros: "Flight arrived on time"
Cons: "No food provided "due to a strike the previous day". Not sure why this would impact on providing a sandwich or snack particularly when champagne was still available for first class passengers."
Cons: "Half the screens were not working - crew were made aware but nothing was done. Vegetarian choices were poor to non-existent ; I witnessed crew insist to a passenger that there were no vegetarian options! They finally cobbled something together for him but not a pleasant experience"

Pros: "General flight journey"
Pros: "Service is awesome. Food is great."
Cons: "People with short connection are affected by the 15 to 25 minutes delay."
Cons: "This return flight was much better than the flight going to Amsterdam. I believe the biggest factor was the type of aircraft. The old 747 just didn't meet expectations. The newer 777 on the way back was much more comfortable, with better amenities."
Cons: "Dozens of high school students screaming and climbing onto seats, crew did not intervene."
Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "We were told they were holding our flight, we ran 3 terminals and they’d already left."
Pros: "Crew was amazing, seats were comfortable with enough leg space even without choosing extra space seats. It was my childhood dream come true to fly with KLM. It was really an exciting trip for me, just that it was short."

Pros: "The food was excelent"
Cons: "I have to pay to pay a little more confort"
Pros: "The cabin crew were pretty good. That's about all that was good."
Cons: "I paid almost $400 for upgraded seats. When I got to the airport-- no seats-- both ways!! i didn't even have regular seat assignments. I had to choose from the last few seats available. The ticket agent, the gate agent and the cabin crew all did nothing to make up for the fact that their system screwed up and stuck me in a cramped coach seat in the back of the plane for 11 hours-- TWICE! Beyond that, KLM must have one of the oldest fleets in the sky. Both ways LAX->AMS->LAX, I was on a 30-35 year old 747 with no wifi, no power and a ten-year-old entertainment system. Never again."
Pros: "Got to Amsterdam on time and everything was great including the staff"
Pros: "The flight was very good, specially considering it was a daylight one. Staff was friendly and servicial. Tue food was above the industry's average."

Pros: "Fortunately, the plane was not full, so people could spread out a bit to create extra room. The food was really good! (surprisingly)."
Cons: "KLM's new configuration for this type of plane made the seats even narrower than before. While leg room was reasonable, the 3 abreast seating meant a lot of discomfort, especially in the row right in front of the restroom."
Pros: "Nice, turbulent-free flight. Food was good, service with a smile. Leg space was OK because Boeing 777s are usually better at this."
Cons: "Flight left over an hour late because of a sensor glitch. It is concerning when a technical glitch happens. But, the flight was smooth."

Pros: "leg room economy compared to KLM"

The entertainment was nonexistent, no food, not very comfortable

We’ve been border but waited 3 hours before pushback due to technical issues. Good can be improved, especially the hot meal.

Plane delayed at 22PM

X

Luggage handling. Arrived in Johannesburg without my luggage. Communication regarding lost luggage is basically non-existent.

A really excellent and comfortable experience. No wifi in my section of business class though - would have made it perfect.

Not the best crew. Extremely annoying with mask wearing. Even when I was eating and drinking they would come up to you to tell you to wear your mask. Extremely annoying.

Cons: "Boarding was a disaster as my companion was selected for random search which held us up as there was no urgency to process us. Then there was no sign for where we should go since upper deck on 747 so we went in "economy" line as indicated on ticket and then was sent to correct line when we got to the front, wasting more time. The seatrs were the most uncomfortable I have ever beeon on for a long flight. I also paid extra to be in the exit row, to have people constantly congregating in front of us."
Pros: "Nothing, the flight was delayed, the plane too small for passengers to store their carry-on luggage, the ground staff did not upload all the luggage and left some behind in Nairobi on the tarmac, the crew lied about the luggage being uploaded. Terrible experience! Kenya Airways is becoming worst and worst."
Cons: "Everything, the flight was delayed, the plane too small for passengers to store their carry-on luggage, the ground staff did not upload all the luggage and left some behind in Nairobi on the tarmac, the crew lied about the luggage being uploaded. Terrible experience! Kenya Airways is becoming worst and worst."
Pros: "Crew asked us if we’d like to move to an empty row to be more comfortable without us even requesting it."
Cons: "Bigger coffee cups? Really nothing to complain about. Everything I would expect from a flight. A++"
Pros: "I've never been on a flight with such narrow seat and thin cushion. There was no entertainment offered for the almost 4 hour flight. There was no means of charging any electronic gears. The airplane seems to be 30 years behind time. Crew was unfriendly and smiling faces are not part of the uniform."
Cons: "Very narrow seats and thim cushion. No entertainment offered an do means of recharging electronic devices."
Pros: "Spacious business class seats, excellent meals"
Cons: "Lack of ventilation in cabin, and staff refusal to turn heaters down (in September), very limited entertainment options."
Pros: "Not much, seats are super uncomfortable"
Cons: "Better code sharing with KLM"
Cons: "First class bathroom could have been cleaner and wider - very narrow, hard to maneuver"
Pros: "The crew did its best to make up for the fact that the special meal I ordered was inedible."
Cons: "See previous"
Pros: "Entertainment system failed repeatedly."
Cons: "Entertainment system failed repeatedly."
Pros: "Great crews, excellent customer service"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and extremely helpful!"
Cons: "The food could have been better"
Cons: "Plane is old and entertainment facilities are no longer appropriate"
Pros: "Red wine was excellent"
Cons: "Bright lights on throughout flight, would have been nice to dim lights for late night flight so passengers could rest"
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Entertainment"
Cons: "More water provided during the flight. Also, the second meal was not very good."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by at least an hour leaving Paris - a regular situation I experienced with AF."
Pros: "Didn’t like the sandwich offered"
Cons: "10 minutes late to the airport....... No help, no refund, no nothing. Never using you again"
Pros: "The plain was ok, the crew really nice and attentive. The only “problem” would be the food, mostly for the breakfast that was awful."
Pros: "Very nice stews. Food was A plus compared to US airlines AND included. Great list of movies etc."
Pros: "The crew worked hard, but the food was below the French standards."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 2.5 hours and the passengers spent this time in the cabin without a/c."
Pros: "Everything except the seat. Service ("would you care for a drink/beverage?") could be better."
Cons: "I paid for a"premium" seat on one of the emergency exit rows for the extra legroom. This was next to a galley. The seat itself was no more than 18" wide (NO EXAGGERATION!!) if not less. I had to sit on an angle (one butt cheek at a time) for 9 yours. I do not have a big butt either. This seat should have been a discounted seat, not a premium seat. I am so angry about this, I will NEVER fly Air France again."
Pros: "Quiet! No noise-canceling earphones needed. Delicious food."
Pros: "Good seat width Great movie selection Great food and drinks Nice and large A380"
Cons: "The interface of the screens seemed old Need to anticipate the needs of the customer better For example, they brought me my special meal first, but I had to wait 30 minutes later to get a drink to accompany it. The food was getting old. Did not see any newspaper/periodical selection. That would have been nice."
Pros: "Food, service, comfort"
Cons: "I did not like that i was in the bulkhead and there was not sufficient overhead storage for us. The bin was only big enough for 1 backpack. 2 of the 3 of us in that row had to go 2 rows back to store our luggage. This is very inconvenient when deboarding because I have to wait for many others to pass before I get a chance to walk towards the back of the plane to get my luggage."
Pros: "The flight had a delayed of 2 hours due a system issue, but the flight was comfortable, and the airplane was clean."
Cons: "I didn't like the check in, the personnel there were not so friendly and had discrepancies. We were a group of 6, and 2 of us were able to drop the bag in the check in. But the others were told that needed to wait 30 mins."
Pros: "Free snack and drinks. Good service."
Pros: "In cabin crew was attentive and friendly. Food was good and came at good times. Middle bathroom on Airbus 380 was big and comfy."
Cons: "Boarding was not too well organized and I followed Security's direction who put me in wrong line and I wasn't able to board with my priority group. Sitting in exit row with no floor storage so this delay made it hard to find overhead storage above my seat. (Grrrr) Entertainment system didn't work which made the flight feel LOOONG. (They offered an in-flight credit, but I'd paid for premium exit row seat and had to choose between moving to working system in crowded middle seat or keep premium, exit seat. I decided to have them move me to a seat with a working entertainment system, which were available and they'd offered, but never happened.) When I got home, I discovered the gift I purchased with in-flight credit and my own money wasn't the one I'd requested from Duty Free catalog so now I have to figure out how to solve this problem. (COULDN'T GET IT RIGHT.) Premium exit row seat was narrow, due to in-seat tray table & entertainment system, but seatbelt mounts and thinly padded seat made it even more uncomfortable on a long flight."
Cons: "People may think,that the delay of the flight has set my mood for this review but I can ensure it has most definitely not. With all the bad weather, I was already very happy to connect right on time in Paris. However, a long haul A380 flight with such a tight seat configurstion is almost embarrassing for an airline. The in flight entertainment is at a very poor level, not only with the screen being very small and outdated, many of the movies are only available in French and the international selection very limited. The food was not much of a delight, whereas the presentation was nice. However, in all the 7 h between the services, nobody came around with refreshments in a completely booked flight, neither was announced that a trolly would be set for self service in the galley. Lucky the ones who got up and found out about. In terms of amenities, again, the airline is lacking of originality and saves cost. Bottom line: you get from A to B, but there are so many better competitors in the market, which I shall definitely consider on my next travel."
Cons: "There were not noodle soup ready this time."
Cons: "only there were del;ay at JFK"
Pros: "Good on a short flight"
Cons: "Paying for carry on due to weight limit. First time this ever happened!"
Cons: "Air France lost my luggage and they can't find it in the computer system."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "It was one problem after another during check in. And it was difficult to find help in English so I couldn't really tell what was going on. In the end I was tucking to get checked in because they were insisting I use a kiosk but I was telling them that the kiosk said to see an attendee. It was not efficient and I felt like a burden asking for help when there was nothing else I could do on my own."
Pros: "Service was much better than on the flight from MIA to CDG 3 weeks before - that was very poor. Entertainment was excellent - great selection of movies. Premium Economy was definitely worth the upgrade cost."
Cons: "Boarding was a complete debacle - no control over who went where. Sky Priority line was full of 50 people who weren't Sky Priority, and there was only one person checking passports. The two people at the desk didn't care when I noted this. We were called to the desk in advance of boarding to check passport information. When we got to the check in line, we were taken aside for more passport checking, even though we are US citizens with Trusted Traveler status in the GOES program. We were one of the first people at the departure lounge, and one of the the last to board."
Pros: "Nice Flight Attendants Good Food"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 1.5 hours"
Pros: "Boeing 777 had a lot of space. Good legroom. Timely departure and arrival, hassle free, safe trip all the way. Enjoyed the red wine; very delicious!"
Cons: "Seat didn't recline. The entertainment unit was very difficult to dislodge and raise to use (We were in the front). Movies were kind of older ones but I had reading to do so entertainment wasn't that important."
Cons: "Left a little late for no apparent reason."
Pros: "Boarded 45 minutes late, and then sat in the plane for another two hours before take off due to a problem with the lie computer. Would have been better to spend that time in the terminal and given credits to buy food, etc. My seat was a regular seat (non exit) and the seat did not recline properly, the USB drive was broken, overall the plane felt unmaintained. The crew was friendly and food was good but I felt not enough was done to accommodate the extra hours we had to wait on the plane."
Cons: "Disorganised boarding with people allowed to bring on multiple and oversize bags that by the airlines own admission delayed departure"
Pros: "Air France is the worst company I have ever flown with. They changed our seats last minute. They where late both flights. Not worth the stress if your layovers are short. Also they took my passport with no explanation of why into another room with out my permission."
Cons: "Boarding more than 15 minutes late. Departure on time, though"

great experience

Pros: "Nothing because I wasn’t able to make the flight service."
Cons: "Have customer service respond in a timely manner. I know you can’t control other agency have been trying 4 days prior to flight schedule to cancel due to positive Covid-19 results and still no response so don’t know if I will lose my ticket price if so won’t deal with you again"
Cons: "Seating"
Cons: "Movie selection"
Cons: "The food portions were disappointing."
Cons: "The issue was not the flight. It was the cancellation policy. I had a best friend suddenly die and I could not apply a credit to future travel on my 4000$ business class seat. It makes me not want to buy through kayak again."
Pros: "Service was perfect"
Cons: "It was an old plane and it was completely full. In this old planes you don't have much space especially when you want to do some work in economic class."
Pros: "Everything was Amazing. This is one of the best Airline out there and they need more recognition."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "I’m really disappointed by Kenya airways, the flight was delayed for 4 hours, my luggage didn’t come along with. And the worst is i haven’t received it so far. I swear this is my last time to travel with Kenya airways, seriously I’m disappointed."
Pros: "I was upgraded to first class!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The crew is helpful."
Cons: "The boarding system needs to be improved and be conducted in an orderly manner. Leaving on time seems to be impossible. Keeping time should be looked into."
Cons: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Should add more updated content in their inflight entertainment"
Cons: "Late departure led to missed connections, but Kenya Airways did not provide much assistance with this. No-one on hand to upon disembarkation to help affected passengers. I just managed to get my onward flight, but my baggage did not make it, so I am awaiting that."
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."
Pros: "Enjoyed this flight; smooth and no problems."
Cons: "The flight was small, so they didn't have a large entertainment selection."
Cons: "My flight never left Kigali and neither etihad nor Kenyan was able to help"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Punctuality"
Pros: "Clean plane, on-time departure"
Cons: "On this flight the meal trays stayed on the tables for over an hour (after the meal was served), should have been collected faster"
Pros: "the service was outstanding.The crew were very jolly and friendly and were very helpful all the time, well trained crew ,...excellent job KQ crew and Kenya Airways"
Pros: "Comfortable seating"
Cons: "Food was bad"
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "There was no food for vegetarian."
Pros: "after 5 hours of waiting when there was no boarding started at boarding gate we came to know that flight is dealyed by 7 more hours. They provided hotel but it took 3 hours for us to clear immigration and reached hotel and after 1 hours they came to pick us back. there was no support from airlines staff and we were at won. Hotel was just waste because we just use for one hour in 12 hours delay."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight is always delayed"
Pros: "The crew on the ground and flight crew were very friendly. The flight took less time than I had thought and this forced the cabin crew to rush with serving the snacks."
Cons: "I've taken this flight 6 times and 4 it's been delayed"
Pros: "Timeous and polite crew"
Cons: "The food was mediocre and no choice for entertainment, common movie or 2 low quality music channels"
Cons: "Bad attitude by the crew"
Pros: "Nice configuration and good early boarding plus courteous staff"
Cons: "Cabin was too hot and no headphones, gor the narrow movie selection"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "PUNCTUALITY"
Pros: "I got moved to a different airline and was not notified so when I got there over 2 hours early for KENYA FLIGHT I was hustled and bustled and BUSSED TO A DIFERENT TERMINAL at Dubai airport, then chastise, harangued and insulted by new airline staff for being "Late" and they couldn't guarantee I would make the flight. I it on board and someone else was in my seat. HE. Got bumped to first class..."
Cons: "See above...the whole experince"
Cons: "Staff on the airplane a bit miserable. Uncomfortable seats and no choice of food. Going downhill"
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: "Nothing. I wasn't on this flight"
Cons: "I still need to be re-booked!"
Pros: "The flight worked."
Cons: "Looking for my bags for a week."
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."
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 "."
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"
Pros: "My flight was delayed for 7 of hours. However, the airline communicated prior to departure and also provided us with hotel voucher. I missed my connecting flight to Francis town hence Kenya Airways provided me with a voucher to a hotel in Gaborone and I was able to travel the next day. I am grateful for the efficient communication and services provided by KQ."
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: "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. He arrived safely with such good care!"
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!"

The boarding process was a bit wonky. Had extra passport checks. Made what I assumed was an automated announcement that the gates were closing when they barely started boarding. The crew and cabin were great. Friendly and helpful. Cabin was clean. The food was excellent I thought. Plenty of bathrooms.

Cool

Pros: "thanks to the paid upgrading we got 2 seats in the front of the cabin (row 5)"
Cons: "there was NO organisation at all during boarding: the people just stood in line, not respecting 1,5m. Also at the airport security waiting lines no attention to social distancing was respected. At arrival the off-boarding was in groups of 8th rows, not really helpfull either. A big disappointment versus the flight we had from BXL to PORTO !"
Pros: "Crew was very nice. Chocolates were very nice."
Cons: "Come on guys for the price of the ticked you could have served us something more than a sandwich."
Cons: "Cabin crew were arrogant and didn’t allow us to storage our backpacks in the over head cabins."
Cons: "This airline is borderline budget airline even in business class."
Pros: "The seat was quite comfortable, the crew was great, and the food was actually pretty good."
Cons: "Going through customs and an additional security check prior to boarding was the worst. It caused the flight to depart 15 minutes late."
Pros: "It was ok"
Cons: "NA"
Cons: "Reject luggage when it fits is aggravating unacceptable Refuse to get cup of coffee when trapped by sleeping passenger Reject cuz luggage 1 lb over when they sent the other luggage on I could have tfr’d l lb to. Check in totally unhelpful 3 security checks by you is hassle and people rude .. tr"
Pros: "That there were no group calls for boarding"
Cons: "My seat"
Cons: "It was hard to keep the washrooms clean despite the effort"
Pros: "It was Air Canada to Geneva and Swiss to Lisbon!"
Cons: "Leave on time Air Canada!!"
Pros: "The seats were wide tall and comfortable, there was enough room for the legs as well."
Cons: "A little glass of juice would have been nice from the airline."
Cons: "Flight delays is a constant problem with this company"
Cons: "It was delayed. I paid very expensive to fly on Business to be on the first row. Because every minute count for me on this trip. But it was delayed. I feel I should get a refund for sum of the money I spent"
Pros: "Good schedules, good prices."
Cons: "They think that a five-hour flight is "intra-European" so they assign tiny little planes with bad seats and cramped rows. Unacceptable."
Pros: "We were delayed boarding slightly, delayed sat on a steaming gate shuttle then sat on the tarmac for a couple of hours while storms passed. But the crew gave regular updates, provided food and water, allowed us to walk about. It was as plesent as such a situation could be."
Pros: "As if our flight from Washington to Brussels was not delayed enough, the flight segment to Accra from Brussels was delayed for almost 2 hours"
Cons: "Almost everything about the trip was impacted one way or the other. Our luggage/bags were partially damaged too, but I decided not to lodge an official complaint."
Pros: "The crew were pleasant."
Cons: "Not enough beverage service. Only had the chance for 1 glass of wine with meal. Would have liked a water station set up so that you can help yourself whenever needed. Boring/very limited movie selection."
Pros: "good"
Pros: "good"
Cons: "the fact I bought a new ticket"
Cons: "As everyone seems to already know, the food and drink is really not very good at all and they didn't provide enough, especially considering that I was delayed by two hours in total in this trip."
Cons: "There was a long-ish and poorly organised layover in Luanda, which involved the flight crew individually identifying the carry-on luggage on the plane so as to ensure no one who had disembarked had left anything behind. This was literally done bin by bin by a crew member shouting down the aisle, "Who's is this brown bag? Who has a grey Longchamp!!!???" This is not something I have ever seen before and it took ages. The cabin also became very hot during the layover, which cause a 40 minute delayed arrival in Kinshasa."
Pros: "Everything was smooth"
Cons: "I was misinformed about the meal service in advance. But besides that I was satisfied with the flight."
Cons: "Lost/Delayed Baggage My baggage is missing and this has cost me extra expenses and a lot of inconvenience."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything : two hoiurs late, no info, unhelpful crew, terrible food,3 toilets for 200 people... The worst experience in flying"
Pros: "Crew. Entertainment. Food. Leg room was a bit longer than usual."
Cons: "Lack of complimentary food - not even a snack as far as I can remember - for almost 5 hours flight. Really?"
Pros: "Excellent service and a safe flight."
Pros: "Love that there's space for the economy and the seats are comfortable"
Cons: "There was nothing to do and would be nice if it had wifi"
Cons: "3€ coffee, no space, flight overbooked."
Pros: "The seats had more leg room that similar sized planes on other airlines."
Cons: "It is ridiculous that an airline does not include soft drinks and water free while on the plane. The flight was also delayed with no clarifying information from airline employees. The information board said boarding for 20 minutes before they unlocked the doors and started boarding."
Pros: "The pilot was good and made a smooth landing. The seat was comfortable enough because I had a pillow."
Cons: "My checked luggage got lost on a direct flight. That is unacceptable."
Pros: "Checking in at Gothenburg was easy and staff was great. They went above and beyond to ensure that I could bring my hand luggage with me."
Cons: "Flight crew could stand to learn some service tips from the ground and phone crews. No entertainment on a 2-hour+ flight with 2 kids..."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Plane was malfunctioning- the electric went out several times ont be way to take off and right after landing. Food and drinks only for sale. Boarding late"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Called and made a reservation directly with Air Brussels to make sure we got a bassinet seat for our infant and that did not happen. Old airplane and very bad customer service all around. Took over 2 hours to check in at 4am in the morning."
Pros: "Smooth flight Pleasant staff Smooth boarding process"
Cons: "Super late due to poor management of runway construction in Brussels No entertainment in the cabin"
Cons: "Poor customer service."
Cons: "Flight was delayed at the gate due to bad weather. Missed my connecting flight. After a 4 hour wait with customer service, my flight was rescheduled for a departure in 5 hours. I have no access to my suitcase. Prepaid hotel will not reimburse for no show. Such a mess."
Cons: "Didn't get to find out gate number until 30 minutes before flight took off! Not good, too much stress and running.too"
Pros: "The food was tasty and it was nice to enjoy a glass of wine with dinner"
Cons: "check in timing"
Pros: "Same coment"
Cons: "Same coment"
Pros: "The on board crew was very helpful."
Cons: "I used this airline for my round trip travel to Africa, and it was not a pleasant experience, the door was horrible and it didn't help that we were served the same thing throughout. Boarding from Cameroon was a nightmare, very disrespectful agents with a lack of customer service skills and they truelly don't care. Don't see myself using this airline in the future."
Pros: "The crew seemed nice"
Cons: "none really, it was fine."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact that they went on strike and left us with no one at the gate when we arrived or no one to explain what is going on. Very difficult / stressful time when in a foreign country."
Pros: "Best business class for travel to and from Europe."
Pros: "Leg room seemed above average. Food was very good."
Cons: "Having games on the monitor is not a good idea because people are constantly pushing on your headrest!"
Pros: "The plane took off a few minutes late but arrived on time."
Cons: "We arrived at the airport at 4:30 for 6:25 flight and there were only 3 open windows to check baggage for 4 different airlines. There were over 200 people in line extending out the door and no one was present to explain what was happening. Soon additional clerks arrived and the line began to move, but it took 45 minutes. The gate area was not large enough for all the passengers and there were seats for only a few while we waited and waited."
Cons: "We paid extra for economy plus, but they completely messed up that part of the reservation. Multiple phone calls and run around at the airport. The "upgrade " is a nice one but the hassle was stressful and still not sure if I'll get the $ straightened. Front of plane warm, but back cold."
Cons: "We found the crew to be abrupt in manner on both flights."
