Great crew!! Best care ever.

Departing on scheduled time and arriving before scheduled time.

Pros: "Boarding that’s all."
Cons: "Food, crew, entertainment they should upgrade the TV very important it’s very outdated but Istanbul airport is awesome."
Pros: "Food was really good, staff was helpful and friendly and there was more legroom that I've often experienced. Also - flight was NOT packed - there was actually an empty mid-row seat!"
Pros: "They were helpful"
Cons: "The entertainment services on the plane"
Cons: "Hi the flight from New York to Istanbul was deleted four 4 hours . from Istanbul to Madina it was ok but I didn't may bagages yet."
Pros: "Left on time, arrived on time, crew were friendly and efficient, toilets were kept clean the entire flight, seat in economy had enough leg room and recline to sleep"
Cons: "In-flight entertainment films were a bit limited"
Pros: "excellent crew, food entertainment and seats"
Cons: "They were the best among the airlines I ever used"
Pros: "Punctuality. I also had an upgrade which was super great!"
Cons: "More choices of movies would be great for long hauls"
Pros: "Good gluten free bread on Istanbul to Malta leg. Blankets are good as is amenity pack which has all but diasappeared on BA. Good choice of films"
Cons: "Foot rest in economy, gluten free meal is poor (except bread)."
Pros: "Overall was a nice flight."
Cons: "There’s no entertainment in plane.this the only thing I wish to change."
Pros: "Excellent service. Very tasty food."
Cons: "Too many voice announcements, interfering with the entertainments system."
Pros: "Nothing. I was so disappointed with the whole experience."
Cons: "Everything. I paid a lot of money for this ticket. When I tried to check in yesterday I was denied. When I called the ticketing office, they explained that everything was fine with the ticket, and I would indeed have a seat, but I would have to go to the airport. I even asked them about the possibility of overbooking but they said that wasn't a risk. (I am Star Gold so I didn't think that was possible.) When at the airport they wouldn't give me a seat and they bumped me leading to many hours of confusion, a connection through Tanzania, and a loss of a night of sleep. And lots of stress. I know they de-prioritized the people who booked on Kayak. This was a miserable experience and unless you do something to fix this I will never use Kayak again."
Pros: "Unlimited booze. Tons of movies. Classy airline"
Pros: "The food, crew & entertainment system"
Cons: "The flight was delayed over two hours causing great stress and worry about missing our next flight, which we did. As there were many of us on the neit flight also I wonder if any effort was made to hold that flight for us."
Cons: "THE bathroom esp at the back of the plan read very dirty. Went floors a d trash that was overflowing."
Pros: "Excellent staff, everything very clean, smooth flight, good movies."
Cons: "The seats in Economy are too close together. A few more inches would make things better. The food was okay, some parts good, others so-so"
Pros: "The food is the only good mentioned"
Cons: "Turkish airways is becoming delaying flights without any justification, that makes that every flight connection That I tried to make the laat two trips were lost , nobody tell you , unfortunately the poor client oriented services do not provide other alternatives, you as a passenger must be advising them how to solve your issues. Shame that they are loosing passengers based in their total lack of support"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Large screens, reusable dishes + silverware"
Cons: "Plane was old, felt more squished and the seats did not decline. Also very note."
Pros: "Likes: The staff were prompt and friendly. The food was more varied and imaginative than on other airlines. Also, the fact that you get a refund, without any hassle, if you need to change your travel plans, makes this airline unique."
Cons: "Suggestions: A few more centimetres of space between the rows of seats would work wonders. A piece of fruit (apple or tangerine) would add to the enjoyment of the food. A wider range and variety of movies would increase the quality of the entertainment."
Cons: "The flight to Lviv was cancelled after 3 hours delay. All happens in life. But the only option Turkish airlines were offering is to fly the next day. I was flying to the funeral and this was not working for me (especially this was their second flight to Lviv cancelled - 2 in a row). The transfer desk didn't inform that there were two other flights going the same day of other airlines. When i approached to help me to go with a different airline the personal was very rude saying they will not help transferring the luggage and that they can't unload the luggage sooner than 3 hours after you go out of the security and passport control. When i asked to book to a different destination in Ukraine. It took 50 min at the desk to do it. Simply because 4 people at the desk were laughing and joking and nobody was concerned about the queue of over 40 people staying. After 30 min it turned out they've lost my boarding pass and it took 15 min to find it as one of the transfer guys managers simply took it to a different room... At the end when they found it it took only 5 min to do the work. I would appreciate more information from the desk about available flights and more support to manage the situation. I'm happy that people at the transfer desk are so joyful and happy it obviously helps to deal with the stressed passengers whose flight was cancel."
Cons: "It was a struggle to get our hotel from the turkish hotel desk crew. We were travelling from Cape Town to Toronto with a little baby and had a layover of approx 10 hours at Istanbul. They claimed that our layover was 9 hr 40 mins (and not 10 hours) and I had to argue before we finally got a transit hotel. Their customer service is poor."
Cons: "Late flight While in transit. They wouldn't pay for my meal in Istanbul because my overlay was 3 hrs"
Pros: "the crow"
Pros: "Extras provided - eye mark, socks etc"
Cons: "My seat was unable to recline. My husband and I were moved to a middle aisle (although we really didn't want to share) only to find that the foot rest at my foot rest was also faulty. It was an uncomfortable flight"
Pros: "We didn't crash"
Cons: "Took too long. Build a transporter!"
Pros: "The food, when you get what you ask for, isn't bad"
Cons: "Rude attendants, running out of food frequently, not getting options, intermittently working entertainment with poor choices."
Pros: "Same as from London to Istanbul"
Cons: "Same as from London to Istanbul."
Cons: "Had to remind the hostess to bring our meal as she missed us in giving out the meals initially."
Pros: "Food on board"
Cons: "Every thing they did to me Not wanting to speak english Not willng to help at all and shaking shouders when I asked a question thier only english no english And showimg no regard to of my problem I tell you what if This airline wants to earn my bunness then they must know not all of us speak turkish And I they are noy wlling to speak english then let Them only do busniss whith Turkish people only I am beyond dessapointed"
Cons: "Same as above!"
Pros: "Food was tasty and fresh but staff cold and aloof"
Pros: "Friendliness, attentiveness, food, clean bathrooms, and great wine selection. I would fly Turkish Airlines anywhere!!!"
Pros: "Food was pretty good."
Cons: "Crew was disorganized. Half the plane didn't get the bread that was supposed to be on the breakfast menu. Service was slow and not enough crew. Also had to wait 30 minutes to use the bathroom because the crew told me I couldn't go into the one I was already in line for and the other one was being cleaned. Seats were more cramped than most airlines (and I'm short)."
Pros: "Attendants were attentive. Food was good ad plentiful."
Cons: "Seat space very cramped. I am tall. Cabin was warm."
Pros: "Service, food, entertainment is off the charts!"
Cons: "Seat comfort and legroom in Economy is below standards for even a domestic flight. Flew for over 21 hours on two concurrent flights and I was almost insane. Last leg was on Jet Blue and I felt like I was in First Class with their leg room and seats."
Pros: "I always enjoy flying with Turkish airlines it is a breeze from check in all the way destination from food to entertainment it all runs so smooth I will fly with u any day so far that is the best"
Pros: "Great customer service, nice plane. Very happy overall"
Pros: "The crew is super. The food is good and the entertainment system is almost perfect (free WiFi will make it the best ever)"
Cons: "legs space, legs space and legs space. I will hesitate to pick up turkish only because of that. in long flights there are a lot of satisfaction factors but this is the most important one for me. if I have to get up every 20 min to stretch, it is not working."
Pros: "excellent food, service"
Pros: "entertainment"
Cons: "Seating too narrow"
Pros: "Entertainment options are good. Flight timings and boarding was generally very good."
Cons: "The foot rest in economy class is really uncomfortable for people over 5'10'' in height as it means we have less legroom, even if it is folded up, and can be uncomfortable to press against. Food is too much the same across all Turkish Airlines flights. I took 6 flights with Turkish Airlines in 1 week and got cheese sandwiches in every flight!"
Cons: "The plane was dirty. It smelled, The food was not up to par."
Cons: "Lack of meal options for second meal and under cooked meals."
Pros: "Doesn't matter where you're flying. If Turkish Airlines can get you there, even if it means overshooting your destination and backtracking, do it."
Pros: "Very nice crew!"
Cons: "Very hot in the plane"
Pros: "The seats were actually comfy in economy. My layover was cheery at the Istanbul Airport."
Cons: "You cant be worried too much about time...had a tight connection = detached from luggage. Fixed the next day."

Cons: "Food. Entertainment. Leg room."
Pros: "Plane had more food space than the previous one"
Cons: "They always ran out of food options."
Cons: "Seat antiquated, food was more economy than business"
Cons: "Improve entertainment ease!"
Pros: "The stewards were so kind and helpful! One of the best flights I've taken."
Pros: "Best soft landing ever!!!! Great pilots."
Pros: "Took off on time. Seating was fair. Service prompt and courteous."
Cons: "Bus translortation should we replaced with walkways. The equipment exists but for some reason we had to use busses to get from plane to terminal."
Pros: "Good service, good food. Landed on time even though we left slightly late."
Cons: "There wasn't a TV per seat and you can't select what you want to watch, but this was not really an issue as the flight was only 2 hours."
Pros: "On time. Nice plane"
Pros: "crew, that the cabin was dark and quiet, good for sleeping."
Cons: "wish I had the budget for a roomier or more fold-down seat for sleeping."
Pros: "Na"
Cons: "Airline dishonest and unhelpful"
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: "There are no individual entertainment systems but they showed two decent movies on the overhead screens. (on our initial flight on this route they had showed a very violent movie not at all appropriate for our young children to be exposed to, and then the second was too long for the flight and was cut off before it ended) I appreciated that they also had a vegetarian meal option available even if you had not pre-ordered. We were able to board the plane through a ramp and didn't have to go up stairs. Lost baggage was delivered the next day. SA uses a lost bag logistics company in Nairobi that only has one attendant and computer in baggage claim. So it takes a very long time to enter in one's lost luggage claim when there are several needing to file."
Cons: "The flight was delayed in leaving. Our odd sized luggage (car seats and a small bag) did not make the connection in J'burg. Had to deplane using a staircase down to a bus."

Pros: "The crew and ponctuality"
Cons: "No entertainment on board!!!"
Cons: "Their aircrafts are dirty"
Cons: "Inflight services were poor"
Pros: "Everything as expected. Kudos to the captain for skill and for his reassuring announcement to passengers (that we were all safe, no harm done) after the plane was struck by lightening on route."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "The aircraft could not take off due to a technical issue and we were told by the captain that we would be provided with accommodation for the night. This did not transpire and the whole plane had to sleep in the departure lounge on the seats with cold aircon and no food or drink. The staff went home and left us to survive. We were told that they would not put us on another flight. By 8 am there was a mutiny because no one was keeping us informed about what was happening. We were tired and hungry and they just did care. After a group meeting, which got very angry, we were then allocated a room in a hotel. The lack of help was unbelievable and we were made to feel like criminals. No senior management came to give apologies. No compensation was offered for our 24 hour delay."
Cons: "LUGGAGE going missing! TLVET11960 1. In Cape Town I was told that I would need to collect and check in again on arrival in Addis - that was my understanding of the instruction. 2. At Addis I was advised that the luggage was being transferred to the Tel Avid flight ET404 3. On arrival at Tel Aviv - no luggage. Advised it would arrive Thurs afternoon and be delivered to my hotel. I asked which flight it would come on and when I could expect that it would be delivered. Was told that was not possible to confirm. IN MY MIND THAT INDICATES THAT THIS IS NOT GENUINE CONFIRMATION. 4. I asked what arrangements would they make for me to get an allowance to cover costs of some clothing/toiletry items I would need to buy. Was told this is not Ethiopian Airlines policy!!!!! 5. This cannot be as there are international regulations in this regard. 6.YOU WILL PAY for express laundry service and a couple of items I'll need to buy today!!! 7. Tried calling 039754008 and only get a recorded message! THIS IS TOTALLY UNSATISFACTORY"
Pros: "Plane was clean and seats were comfortable. Staff was overall friendly."
Pros: "Excellent staff"
Pros: "Loved the movie selections"
Cons: "The seats are entirely too close together, even for me and I'm only 5"3. Airlines are trying to maximize profits while sacrificing passenger comfort and that is ridiculous. Great customer service will gain more business than any other method."
Pros: "Friendliness of staff"
Pros: "Short flight, was ontime"
Cons: "Too many rules with South African Air, sticklers about every little thing. Annoying, but whatever."
Pros: "Food was alright, flight was quiet"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and staff was friendly. Lunch was served, which was good."
Pros: "The flight was great, no problem."
Cons: "Flight was very comfortable and the staff was courteous."
Cons: "We ended up at a gate in the International terminal at Tambo (Jo'burg). the plane was a big Airbus. We deplaned EVERYONE thru one little door, descended stairs to the tarmac and had to ride buses back to the domestic terminal. It took forever and I ended up missing my connection. I fail to understand why they didn't dock this domestic flight into the DOMESTIC terminal, and use a regular getway to deplane everyone."
Pros: "No delays (although last minute gate change was a bit annoying)"
Cons: "Meal options ran out quickly even though I was somewhat seated towards the front. They should keep a record of popularity of food options and stock accordingly, in order to prevent running out so quickly."
Cons: "Technology sucked. TV screens were old and none of the headphone jacks worked."
Cons: "Most airlines on the planet allow headphones during take-off and landing but you guys don't. Chill out and get with the 21st century."
Pros: "I got help with the boarding pass and once on the plane was very impressed with the comfort of the interior and cleanliness of the plane. I would definitely fly with that airline again."
Pros: "This was a quick flight and similar to domestic flights in the US."
Pros: "The provide a snack and drinks on a two hour flight--that's worth something."
Cons: "I wouldn't bother with a sandwich for everyone--especially during non meal times. Why not offer chips or something lighter rather than wasting all the sandwiches people half eat."
Pros: "clean, large cabin."
Cons: "bus to the plane is a little old"
Pros: "The gave us lots of water"
Cons: "Old plain, lost my one mine bags, missing items"
Cons: "Quite delayed, my luggage didn't make the connection due this and all my christmas presents are now in South Africa and since I'm flying to a 4th country with another airline I won't be able to pick it up from NYC. A mess."
Pros: "The pilots and crew did well."
Cons: "On both 16 hour flights close to half of the entertainment screens didn't work at all. The vegetarian sandwich out of NY was slices of bell pepper between two slices of bread. But you can have a gin and tonic. In Cape Town the 90 minutes before the flight was spent standing in line to be frisked and have your bags rummaged through. After that everyone just piled on board in no order. The elites were able to skip through and avoid dealing with the riff raff."
Pros: "Price and time schedule"
Cons: "Our flight time moved up one hour and no one notified me. If I wasn't at the airport early I would have missed my flight and my connection"
Cons: "Incident report: August 15, 2016, SA210, When we stopped at Accra, Ghana, Kotoka International ACC for re-fuel and cleaning the aircraft --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- South African Airline violates two accounts stated on the bottle: 1. When it says “dis-infection of Aircraft” means Passengers are not Aircraft. Passengers should not be sprayed on. Passengers should not be in the airplane when this is sprayed. 2. Use for Pre-embarkation means no human in the aircraft. We were inside of the aircraft. It sprayed on our body all over and everywhere. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Major health damages: 3. After the spray, several passengers (our travel group) had severe sneezing attacks and running nose and sinusitis. One lady sneezed at least 50 times non-stop initially and continued to sneeze for the rest of the trip in the plane. Her sinus was swollen and painful for the rest of trip to Johannesburg. You are lucky she did not make a big deal and suffered silently. You may argue that WHO approved it. On the bottle, WHO approve for the use of Aircraft, not human in the aircraft. On August 15, 2016, I witnessed many passengers’ immune system were damaged – some reacted violently. 4. Please do not wait until someone has asthma attack and die in your aircraft due to allergy to the spray. 5. As a physician I prescribe Permethrin for Scabies treatment. Patients were told to use it on the skin for 8-10 hours and then wash off complete right away due to potential neurotoxicity, especially for young children. 6. My medical specialty is Integrative Medicine and Preventive Medicine. I feel I am obligated to bring this up to Department of Health of South Africa in order to prevent passengers being harmed, especially those who suffer from chemical / environmental allergies, rhinitis, sinusitis, asthma, COPD, skin disease, migraine, etc… just to name a few. 7. Suggestion and Solution: Passengers should all be off the plane, and escort to an area while aircraft is being re-fueled, cleaned and sprayed insides. This will make the cleaning crews more efficient for their cleaning work and less allergenic reactions, potential fatal, to passengers who suffer dust and / or insecticide spray allergies. This will reduce health hazard to passengers and workers. Thank you for being conscious about environmental safety issues. PS: One crew member, Imraan, is very conscientious. He came and showed his concern about symptoms one lady had from spray. He made SA airlines look better. One crew member was rude because he reluctant to give me one bottle of water for my husband who was sleeping at the time of the drink service. ."

Pros: "Seats super comfortable"

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

Pros: "Crew was amazing! Elvis smelled good!!!"
Cons: "Avoid flight delays. We missed our connecting flight on Dubai because of delayed departure from Nairobi."

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!"
Pros: "Only the pilot take off and landing was owesome.. the other services were very poor.. eg I hated it when all our largages were left behind"
Cons: "pilot take off and landing.."
Pros: "The check-in and in-flight service were up to expectations. Friendly, efficient and professional"
Cons: "The 737 is too old and the business class seats need to be changed. They did not recline fully and the door rest also could not be extended completely. Consequently, the seating and resting postures were extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "Kind people"
Cons: "na"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight is always delayed"
Pros: "Boarding was early"
Cons: "Plane full and didnt have enough room for a number of hand luggage, mine invcluded"
Pros: "They no take care of my bag"
Pros: "Solid overall performance in all the basics"
Cons: "Crew were always in a bit of a rush and cold, Paris airport staff were frankly rude sometimes"
Pros: "Nice configuration and good early boarding plus courteous staff"
Cons: "Cabin was too hot and no headphones, gor the narrow movie selection"
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: "Boarding procedures took too long consequently missed connecting flight. Crew seemed overwhelmed, chicken dinner was half cooked, entertainment system didn't work."
Cons: "No announcements made as to what gate # or boarding. We almost missed the flight because of the lack of information. Airport staff were as equally confused. Entertainment did not work at all."
Pros: "The baggage handler for Kenya Airways, Derrick, in Johannesbury was very helpful checking on my delayed luggage. The flights and flight attendants were very good."
Cons: "Late departures, unscheduled stop for crew, and baggage not making new flights made me miss two transfer flights. Closed sales kiosk in Johannesburg unable to get an hotel and meal vouchers. Sales lady was rude the next day. Arrived Cape Town over 24 hours late."
Pros: "Nothing. I wasn't on this flight"
Cons: "I still need to be re-booked!"
Pros: "5 star service"
Cons: "My flight was 36 hours delayed and Kenya Airlines did not tell us why. I then heard that the same flight had been delayed three nights in a row. This led me to book another flight to my destination, so that I did not miss anymore of my trip. I am going to pursue a refund of my original flight. It seemed to me that Kenya Airlines new the flight would be delayed and said nothing until two hours before. Also how they handled the situation was very poor. I will never fly with Kenya Airlines again."
Pros: "I liked the food and actual service on the flight"
Cons: "Notorious for flight delays! How can you cancel an entire flight the day before?! Horrible! The delays are very annoying! Kenya Airways you're fired! Kayak, you guys should remove their crappy service from your options!! I only found out about the delay from their online service. The actual people suck! And do not even try to get through on their customer service line!"
Pros: "tickets were cheap"
Cons: "Flight was late leaving Dubai therefore causing me and several other people to miss our connecting flight."
Pros: "Business passengers still served snacks even with such a short flight. Great view of Mount Kilimanjaro"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled after waiting from midnight until 6:00 am in the Airport. Could have gone to a hotel... lost 2 days"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Kenya airways is a symbol of operational disorder and absence of any client orientation. I would strongly recommend Kyak to take it off its recommended airlines"
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!!"
