Pros: "Friendly crew, comfortable plane"
Cons: "Luggage lost, unhelpful Kigali Helpdesk. Johannesburg VERY helpful"

Pros: "The two check in bags rule."
Cons: "Not applicable"

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Customer services"

Cons: "Time was never kept. we had a delay in LGW for more than 2 hrs. I had a 17hrs layover in Kigali. I was not aware that i would not be booked in a hotel to rest. I had to make my own arrangements. And another extended delay out of Kigali to Nairobi"

Pros: "I was happy to avail of Wifi in the sky."
Cons: "No entertainment! For an major international flight, one expects some seatback entertainment"

Cons: "It was ok"

Pros: "New plane, fresh feel. Food is ok."
Cons: "Airline feels basic and no frills."

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"

Cons: "THERE WAS MEAT INSIDE MY "VEGETARIAN" MEAL!!! This is totally unacceptable!"

Pros: "Food and in-flight services"
Cons: "Entertainment package"

Pros: "Rwanda Air is the best"
Cons: "Landing at Kigali was bit rough"

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: "I think that I appreciated all the details during the trip. As I get my kayak app in my IPhone, i firstly received a notice that the check in started.... At each step, I could see the time discounted through my phone"
Cons: "As I said, I liked everything. From the departure to the landing"

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."

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: "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: "The Airbus. The crew's simple commitment to excellent service"
Cons: "The unconventional check in closure 90mins to departure even when the plan arrived late"

Pros: "Nice blankets. Good service."
Cons: "Food wasn't that great and juices were very sweet (tasted like sugar water)"

Pros: "Nice comfortable new planes."
Cons: "There wasn't much not to like."

Cons: "We incurred significant extra costs (visas, taxi, hotel costs) because Rwandair changed our flights around from what we had originally booked, with no compensation or help navigating the visa process."

Pros: "New airline. Left 20 mins early."
Cons: "Nothing."

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: "What did you like? the attendants were very kind"

Pros: "Information during flight"
Cons: "No TV or programmes to entertain slong"

Pros: "Good"

Pros: "The flight attendants are very welcoming and helpful. You feel safe and you get to see the pilot who is going to take you to your destination."

Pros: "The crew was very welcoming"
Cons: "We had a delay of 40 minutes at Kigali airport without prior announcement"

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."

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: "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: "Everything went well as expected..."

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: "Too cold on the plane - way, way too cold"

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 flight times were perfect and the seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The food was just ok"

Pros: "Orderly, organized, courteous"

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: "Unfortunately i missed the flight from kla to Nairobi via Entebbe due to closue of Entebbe Road. Return from Nairobi was okey but was delayed for about 40 minutes"
Cons: "Food needs to be addressed"

Pros: "Flight attendant are helpful."

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: "nothing I liked about this flight. Our flight was delayed by more than 6 hours. Even though airline had an opportunity to bump us in their sister airline- precision airline in earlier flight Nairobi, they refused to help us. Precision air had lot of seats empty."
Cons: "Kenyan airways do not care about customers and inconvenience they are facing. We were suppose to arrive Dar at 7:30 pm and instead now we will arrive at 1:30 am on 28th Jan 2020."

Cons: "Seating"

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"

Cons: "The food portions were disappointing."

Cons: "Kenya Airways sears had less leg room than Qatar"

Cons: "More legroom, seats with more cushion and recline, better food!"

Cons: "I find your company canceled my ticket from Kenya to Cairo for all my 7 tickets"

Cons: "As our first flight was late, we missed our connecting flight in Nairobi. They had us wait for nearly 2 hours to finally get our VISA and take us to a hotel to wait for the next flight. However, after waiting for 2 hours (with a 1-year old child), they took us to a hotel which didn't have any room"

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: "Both segmrnts left on time. The on- flight crew were pleasant. The 787 on first flight comfortable in biz class for a nap. Food service well carried out by crew."
Cons: "The 737 on second flight ....the long overnight one... Was very uncomfortable in biz class. On arrival in Nairobi...the hub city...there was no staff. A.c. no working or escalator in airport. Biz line for security not open. Food below average. No breakfast as we one meal."

Pros: "Food and entertainment was good"
Cons: "90 minute wait after planned takeoff time for ‘customs’, and three different passport checks after I was already inside the international terminal at Nairobi."

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"

Cons: "I was not offered blankets from the onset."

Pros: "Once we got on the plane, everything was okay."
Cons: "Every moment leading up to the airplane. From our flight being delayed 13 hours, to people not helping us with a hotel when we had a 12 hour layover to start with. They said we needed to talk to only the Kenya Airways representatives in Addis where we left from. We did... and they didn't say anything. After that they refused to help us in Nairobi. There were all these secret ways of getting help that they said we didn't qualify for. Supervisors and managers were not available unless I left their desk and went to departures. They said I would have to go back through immigration.. but thankfully, right before I did, someone came and spoke to me. From our several interactions, we received no apologies, but felt that the theme was that everything was my fault.. not the best feeling as a customer. Only my one chat with the supervisor was very nice. She was very patient, sat down with me and helped direct my concerns. Especially with a 13 hour delay. Nairobi seemed great, but our interactions with the staff really took away from our experience. And we missed our vacation in the end.."

Pros: "professional KLM flights"
Cons: "headphone audio quality not as good as had hoped"

Pros: "Flight was on time. Service was good."
Cons: "Luggage did not arrive. Many passengers who came from Lilongwe to Nampula did not get luggage. There was no ground staff to follow up on the issue."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Cancelling out a flight at the last minute despite being on stipulated time"

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"

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

Pros: "Hospitality"
Cons: "Headphones did not work"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Once I got on the flight things were fine, but the process of getting there was a nightmare."
Cons: "My Air India and Kenya Airways flights were packaged together as though they were a code share, but when my initial let on Air India from Delhi to Mumbai was delayed I missed my connection to Nairobi. What followed was a bizarre five-hour scramble in the Mumbai airport that ranks in the top three worst flight experiences I’ve ever had. I had already checked in and had a emailed boarding pass, but wasn’t let through security without the official airline printout. Although the Kenya Airways Nairobi flight was also delayed and was still several hours from boarding, their staff was nowhere to be found and none of their 10+ customer service numbers was working. I finally managed to get a hold of a representative over the phone via the airport’s information counter, and she swore that a staff member was on the way to meet me. Two hours and several calls and assurances later, the flight took off without me and the Kenya Airways staff stopped picking up the phone. Then there was a crazy several hours of back and forth as a single employee emerged and demanded that I get a letter from Air India taking responsibility for the initial delay, before disappearing again for several hours. The disorganization, unprofessionalism and outright lies I encountered were frankly bizarre and unlike anything I’ve encountered while flying before."

Pros: "They wheelchaired my companion to the airport after delayed medical examination to make the flight."
Cons: "Kenya changed my flight to two hours later 18 hours before I was to leave. Making me have a 10 minute connection. Then after an hour in a airline office they promised to hold my connection. When my flight landed on time, they did not hold my connection. So they changed my flight and didn’t follow through on the fix. We would now miss wedding activities and business meetings. Then my partner got sick and they refused to taxi us to hotel for the night but take a bus that leaves every three hours. Her sickness got worse and there was a Kenyan airlines doctor who evaluated her at the airport after waiting 40 minutes laying at check in with her crying due to pain. We had a medical release from the doctor saying she needed extra space to lay down but the check in manager refused to make room for her saying the flight is full and she would not upgrade her to accommodate the medical release because we had an economy ticket. My partner looked so bad that the flight crew considered kicking us off but eventually made the space for her to lay down and were helpful on the flight. This is this disgraceful and the worst experience I’ve had with any company."

Pros: "Trip on the Dreamliner to/from Nairobi/Joburg went very smoothly. Entertainment was limited but worked and was fine for a 4 hour trip. Food was nothing great but nothing disastrous, booze was handed out willingly, staff were efficient, plane was on time - I rate it higher than SAA for the same leg and would choose KA again."
Cons: "Expensive at $800 but limited choice in Africa so what can you do?"

Cons: "The flight to Nairobi was so late that I missed my connection and have to wait about 10 hours for the next flight out."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "35 minute departure delay with not even an attempt at an explanation. Broken seat. Cramped."

Pros: "Crew were solid overall but felt they are not yet at the highest standards of service in terms of friendliness"
Cons: "Entertainment system required every movie to have an intro about Kenya which when switching items became v repetitive"

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

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Made it to the airport 1hour and 15 min before the flight and was denied boarding. Airport would not allow me to see the ticket agent. Terrible experience."

Cons: "In a lot of airports, if a flight is delayed, the airline is aware and holds planes on the ground for a few mins if there are multiple people that will miss the connection. In this case, we were delayed for 2 hours, arrive to Nairobi and am at the gate 15 mins before and they sent me to customer service as the gate had just closed. More than 5 other people on the flight missed this common connection as well. Not only did KQ not have a system in place to work with other flights, the service area was completely swamped. People missed their connections because they couldn't get to the front in time to have a boarding pass printed or have a question answered. The staff were rude and didn't give eye contact or answer questions."

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: "Client oriented crew"
Cons: "Delay in departure time"

Pros: "The flight was delayed in leaving but the Captain didn't say anything until we were about to land. The overnight flight was pleasant but the food was pretty mediocre."
Cons: "Crew were pretty good and the Dreamliner is an excellent aircraft, particularly in business class."

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: "My travel itinerary was one with long layover times. Thank you Kenya, Airways for allowing the day use of your lounge areas for a fee. Got some sleep, a wonderful Turkey Lunch on Christmas Day, before my connecting flight to Guangzhou. Smooth Short field landing and take off in the 787-8. No rattling sounds during landing and take off so the Plane must have also been new. Kudos!!"
Cons: "Suffered with the unattended toilets. Food for thought, could the toliets on flights be designated according to gender? toilet seat was always covered in sprayed urine( which I wiped clean every time before sitting and using the toilets, made several trips during the 9 hour flight. Hand Soap run out at some point."

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: "Business passengers still served snacks even with such a short flight. Great view of Mount Kilimanjaro"

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."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Poor organization regarding flight cancellation - I was stuck in the CDG airport all day long to find out more information and get a hotel voucher. And then next morning, there was no clear announcement regarding a rescheduled flight; the flight was delayed AGAIN. This trip caused so much problem in my work."

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

Pros: "on board crew members were pleasant and efficient."
Cons: "rude and dismissive ground crew. delayed flight. and when we got to Nairobi we discovered that several items had been stolennout of our checked luggage."

Pros: "View of coastline from window"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by nearly two hours. my baby stroller was left on tarmac in rain and was soaking wet when we received it at JKIA so I could not even put my exhusted son in it. Kenya Airways needs to step up its customer service."

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)"

Cons: "Boarding in Nairobi as we had a small child and it was a bit chaotic as those with children, and those in business class, were not given a chance to enter first."

Cons: "I have wifi in board for an hour for whatsapp messaging I would have beloved to have it all flight"

Pros: "Great crew, Food."
Cons: "Reduce baggage charges."

Pros: "Great Crew."
Cons: "Improve baggage charges"

Pros: "Pleasant check-in staff. Friendly flight attendants."
Cons: "Travelers should be told that Gate 2 to Kumasi will be empty when you get there and that you should go around the corner to the transit area and wait for your flight there. They should let you know that they will announce the flight from the transit area."

Pros: "The crew were fantastic! The one meal from Athens to Cairo was excellent, the other two meals weren’t too bad but not as good as the first one."
Cons: "The security in Cairo was really a joke."

Cons: "Poorly organised meal service"

Cons: "They know better than me"

Cons: "Old aircraft rickety seats"

Cons: "The queue during boarding is very long, they need to add counters"

Pros: "crammed seats, meh food first experience with ethiopian, wasn't great"

Pros: "Good selection on inflight entertainment"
Cons: "Lack of food choices."

Pros: "Yes.seat was just ok but not quiet comfortable"
Cons: "I think Ethiopian is reasonably good.I travelled to Seattle via delhi .from delhi to sea I travelled by Ana the reason was the fare of Ethiopian (Enugu to Seattle,round trip)was much higher and also you spend 37 hours before u reach your destination,it is too long.why can't u fly to usa direct ,then"

Pros: "The ravioli was great, some of the other food was not great. Otherwise, the flight was easy."
Cons: "More entertainment options, the movies and TV shows offered are not varied or very good."

Pros: "Flight and crew"
Cons: "Food and inflight entertainment"

Cons: "My reservation seat was suddenly changed with no notification and apologise. It was really confusing situation."

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Flight was delayed again. No priority boarding for Star Alliance members. Staff was unfriendly."

Pros: "Check in was brilliant. The incoming flight was half an hour early so they wanted to leave half hour early too. We were clearly instructed to be available at gate accordingly. Fabulous breakfast service in Business class too. Pre-order and indicate preferred time of service or to skip altogether so each customer got their required rest."

Pros: "Landing on time"
Cons: "Limited choice of food- no vegetarian options, only meat."

Cons: "Rude flight attendants and desk staff that were not trained to do check in well. No entertainment available."

Pros: "It is an African airline so I am doing my best to support it. I am grateful I was allocated to a hotel for my long layover"
Cons: "I had a long layover in Addis and the hotel I was allocated to could improve its service. I was expected to be served breakfast in the morning. My flight was at 820 am There could be some improvement on food"

Cons: "Transfer at Addis Ababa was horrendous - no help from ground staff and the airport was a confusing mess. The landing in cape town was very rough and jumpy."

Pros: "Spacious seats, attentive flight attendants"
Cons: "Bathrooms were messy and ran out of soap in one."

Pros: "The standarts (equal to african standarts of course)"
Cons: "Long wait with no care for. At least a place to rest. They changed our seats with no reason"

Cons: "Besides that the flight was 4 hours delayed and the staff gave different information then the screen, customer service was non existant. There seems to be no structure or system. Gate change was not announced. Staff was not clear or direct about status of the flight. I have had several flights with EA and most have been completely disappointing and frustrating. Forget trying to call anyone, it took me 4 days of non stop calls to connect with someone to change my flight date. Then once connected the credit card system was apparently down and they could not charge my fee. I had to contact the US office while I was in Africa in order to get anything done, ridiculous. They over charged me and would not honor the fees that were quoted on the phone and via email but the head office. Dishonest and no concern for the inconvenience to their customers. This airline would be the last choice, highly not recommended."

Pros: "The pretty ladies"
Cons: "Lost luggage and horrible food"

Pros: "The flight crew was pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "Being woken up throughout the night for food. The overhead screens were on all night which made it difficult to rest."

Pros: "Great entertainment center and seat back video."
Cons: "No Wifi available"

Pros: "Brand New Aircraft"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything was bad, very upset !"

Pros: "Plenty of meal service quick boarding process"
Cons: "Nothing in particular."

Pros: "Absolutely nothing. The plane was hot, stuffy and very uncomfortable. The food was terrible and the staff was rude."
Cons: "The staff, the food, the entertainment, the cabin being extremely hot, the plane being so incredibly old!!"

Cons: "Crew was not friendly and seemed to ignore my requests. Seat was not comfortable. Food was okay."

Cons: "Staff didn't seem very efficient. Flight sat on runway for awhile and braking was very abrupt. Bags took too long at the dar airport."

Pros: "Fabulous. On time departure, 15 min early arrival into Addis. Service was outstanding"
Cons: "About time they introduced WiFi on flights"

Pros: "Comfortable. Crew excellent. On time. Efficient on boarding and landing - good information throughout"
Cons: "Addis Ababa airport very crowded with no seat available for five hour stopover. Food outlets limited"

Cons: "I was suppose to stay on the flight in Hong Kong to continue to Ethiopia and they never made an announcement. I had a seat with a TV that did not work and it took over 30 mins for a flight attendant to respond."

Pros: "The staff on Ethiopian airlines is great. Food was palatable."
Cons: "Boarding from the front and back of the plane is a terrible idea, especially when the gate agents allow most of the aircraft to board at the same time. Also, on flights longer than three hours, they should use a plane with more entertainment (bigger plane). It was cramped and uncomfortable both legs."

Pros: "I did like the overall services. I was comfortable with the crew and was entertained. I enjoyed the night over in the fhoice of loudging with nazra Hotel."
Cons: "I didn't like the quality of food in the hotel panaroma on my return. The hotel needed air refreshner as it wae stuffy and difficult to breath in. The reception was excellent but poor service."

Pros: "The seats were good, the flight was comfortable and easy. Flight attendents were friendly and proffessional."
Cons: "Food could be better but I don't expect much on an airplane, the media system is a bit old so you don't have a lot of options but it's OK."

Pros: "The friendliness of the crew and their spirit of hospitality make this company stand our from others. Also the new aircrafts and the amenities on board are a big plus."

Pros: "The inflight music (tons of awesome Ethiopian music, from jazz to pop) and solid Ethiopian beer."
Cons: "The boarding process was cumbersome but I think that's because of the airport not the airline."

Cons: "Addis Airport is terribly organized and far too small for the volume of people they're pushing through it (which is probably the lead cause of the poor organization)."

Cons: "Very very old aeroplane"

Cons: "Food and entertainment is very poor."

Pros: "They flight was on time."
Cons: "The food is poor. They should change the menu and improve on the quality of food. The personal entertainment system was not working. Such a long flight need to have good entertainment for passengers."

Pros: "TIME KEEPING"
