Pros: "Everything about the trip was great excellent customer experience"
Cons: "If I got to sit in first class coz the plane was so empty haha"

Pros: "Best food. Best crew."
Cons: "Extra inch of leg space"

Cons: "Flight was a little long!"

Cons: "No gate for departure or arrival. No business class longe in Cape Town."

Pros: "Crew was great, but food I like more like Emirates."
Cons: "No headphones and was not possible to watch movie."

Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Everything. Firstly the flight was delayed, these things happen but nevertheless I end up missing my connecting Qatar flight to Belgrade, put into a horrible little hotel for 24hrs without my bag, no clothes or toiletries. At one point during the flight once everyone had their chairs reclined one hostess told me to not put mine so far back?!?! Then when asked well then person in front of me has to move theirs forward and her response no they don’t. Absolutely shocking. To think I wanted to upgrade to business class. I’m traveling the globe over the next year and thought let me try Qatar but never again with this type of service and how they treat their customers."

Pros: "yes. great travel and crew"

Pros: "Staff was nice and polite and helpful to me. The plane is pretty much on time or little delay. The boarding is early but I guess it helps with getting everyone on board and be on time."
Cons: "There are 2-3 choices per meal for us to choose on the menu but some of the choice already gone by the time they serve us. I feel like menu is useless if we were forced to eat what have left."

Pros: "The plane was new and spotless, the crew did everything possible to make the flight great. Food service, and Wine and Cocktails were always served with a smiling face and it made you think of flying many years ago. Service cleanliness of the restrooms and staff were top notch"
Cons: "Nothing really."

Pros: "I really appreciated that my bags were not lost"

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "The food didn’t necessarily agree with me but it tasted good and there was plenty of it."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Food was terrible. It’s worse among the airlines."

Cons: "The boarding process was ridiculous. The staff delayed boarding of zone 2 passengers until ALL zone 1 passengers could be located and boarded which could easily have delayed takeoff. They went so far as to page missing zone 1 pax several times and asked people sitting on gate area which zone they"

Pros: "Entertainment and boarding"
Cons: "Food"

Cons: "I had a carry on plus a laptop bag. On the website they say you are allowed to carry a personal item such as handbag or a laptop bag along with the carry on piece. This guy at Nagpur airport says the weight of both these combined should be under 15 lbs. are you kidding me?"

Pros: "Amazing crew, new planes"
Cons: "Food can be adjusted to the cuisine of the destination."

Pros: "Plane design was nice"
Cons: "Selecting food online was misleading; felt we had to select something then. We learned later that it was just special diets that required online selection."

Pros: "Great crew. Met every request and did a very professional, yet personal job."
Cons: "Overall meals were best I've had on flights. Did not care for last one but probably just a personal taste."

Pros: "The crew was very helpful and fast, at the gate of flight from Doha to Tbilisi they greeted and thanked me in Georgian, which was very nice of them. The seats were comfortable and the entertainement was good during almost ten hour flight from Manila to Doha."
Cons: "The food during the flight from Manila to Doha was poor. Last year I flew from Doha to Singapore in January and the year before that from Doha to Colombo, the food on both of the latter flights was very good. The food during flight from ManilaManila to Doha was poor."

Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "I got an aisle seat. Bathrooms were not bad in terms of cleanliness."
Cons: "Service was ok. I was forgotten to be served items that other passengers were given. Seating ended up being kind of cramped as passenger in front was relaxing a bit too much. Entertainment was ok."

Cons: "My baggage was lost!"

Pros: "Quick"

Pros: "In my departure flight, there were many empty seats and the crew let us move to another seat to lay down and sleep. Also the food was very good and there was a great selection of movies."

Cons: "Nothing at all"

Pros: "quick"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Bathrooms"

Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "I’m a 6’3” in shape man. I selected the bulkhead seats for extra leg room. Great crew, but my shoulders stuck past the seat edge 3” on both sides. Qatar should revise their claim of most room in cabin - this 12 hour flight was one of the roughest I’ve had in a long time comfort wise."

Pros: "The in flight service was good"
Cons: "The time it took to get the baggage. It took over 2 hours"

Pros: "The convenience because it goes to Nagpur directly"
Cons: "A very long flight. It was very tiring. Security check in Doha was unnecessary, because we already had it in nagpur"

Pros: "Confi and relaxed atmosphere"

Pros: "Staff very friendly. Loved the adjustable headrest as I am shorter and this is the first time flying that my neck was so comfortable I didn't need my travel pillow! Food was excellent!"
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "The crew on my side of the cabin was very good."
Cons: "Not having available air for the center seats made our flight a truly awful experience. The older style seats are actually more comfortable for taller and larger people. My wife was virtually ignored by the male crew on her side of the aircraft."

Cons: "USD 20 wi fi and you only get 200 MB seems a bit antiquated"

Pros: "Business class was wonderful liked pjs, food, seating. Etc"
Cons: "Crew left a small amount of champagn in a glass which fell on me when I was asleep. Crew only offered first meal after that did not offer food only when I requested it. Limited gluten/ dairy free options"

Pros: "on my flight from bkk to Doha all the flight attendants were very helpful. One in particular with the name Mary Jane, was very helpful and she stood out among the rest. Thank you for your kindness and help when I couldn't eat some of the foods on board. Whom can I write an email to so that I can be sure that she gets noticed for her work? Thank you"

Cons: "It's been more than 50 hours and I still haven't received both of my checked in luggage"

Pros: "Smoothe landing"
Cons: "Old plane, some kind of tablet thing with an attached remote almost impossible to figure out even how it works. 7hr flight and I only saw the steward twice."

Pros: "Overall OK food not all that up to the mark"
Cons: "3 out of 4 bags did not arrive even after 1 day of journey completion"

Cons: "It was all good"

Cons: "The chicken sandwich was horrendous. I saw multiple people take a bite and then put it down and not eat the rest. It tasted terrible."

Cons: "Plane configuration; seats were a bit cramped, knee space."

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

Pros: "The hotel stay was haven on earth. The ride from hotel to the airport was excellent."
Cons: "Nothing Everything was the best"

Pros: "Seat reclining was good. Fleece blankets were warm"
Cons: "Blankets had a really bad smell Food options were very limited - even bread was eggless"

Pros: "Helpful friendly crew, reasonable ticket prices."
Cons: "Luggage was delayed by 24 hours, customer service desk in Johannesburg EXTREMELY helpful, in Kigali they were clueless. Transit area very crowded, humid and stuffy."

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

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"

Cons: "It was ok"

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

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

Pros: "Rwanda Air is the best"

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"

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: "The planes and shuttles are nice and clean, and the staff are pleasant. I had a long layover in Kigali and the airline gave me accommodation and a food voucher (totally unexpected). Will definitely fly RwandAir again."

Pros: "Fligh was on time, front desk staff were very helpfful, flight staff were friendly"

Pros: "Timeliness, Service, Cleanliness Comfort"

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 aircraft was nice, clean and seemed new. The staff was very professional, immaculate uniforms and appearance. Great attention to detail. We traveled from US - Nairobi - Kigali - Johannesburg, changing planes four times. These were some of the nicest planes. I felt very safe traveling this airline."
Cons: "Too much bread in the meals. The meals were adequate in quantity but each meal came with two rolls, which was excessive. Just a note - for the boarding area in the airport. Please have restroom facilities in boarding area, past security so you can use the restroom without having to go through security again. Also, if food and beverage is available for sale in the boarding area more passengers would make purchases."

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."

Pros: "Friendly staff, decent snacks and entertainment options"

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

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

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."

Cons: "The airline moved my original non-stop flight forward by 3 hours. The new flight conflicted with another flight I had earlier in the day. The airline would not allow me to cancel the flight, and could only offer me a 1-stop flight that arrived at my destination hours after my initial flight would have arrived."

Pros: "Very slow check in. Bit slow and chaotic at gate. Pleasant enough service but not excetional. Smooth flight. Informative pilot. Silly short bus ride to terminal. Very very long wait for baggage."

Pros: "Good food, friendly and professional staff, a new and sparkling clean plane, swift retrieval of luggage upon arrival in Kigali. Thank you!"

Pros: "Overall comfort and staff friendliness"
Cons: "Landing was a bit turbulent"

Pros: "Flight was delayed over an hour. Otherwise the plane was new, everything felt good, and I have nothing to complain about!"

Pros: "Rwanda air crew"
Cons: "Lagos international airport"

Pros: "The staff at the airports were friendly."
Cons: "After thorough check (and hours at the airport) at the holiday destination, Dubai, my luggage was deemed lost. The DXB lost luggage staff helped me complete a 'lost luggage' report. However, the staff member told me that 'if' RwandAir found my luggage, I would be responsible for going to the airport as RwandAir does not have lost luggage delivery like most airlines. For the six days of my holiday, I waited for phone calls and checked emails expecting to hear from RwandAir. I heard nothing, RwandAir had made no effort of any kind to locate my luggage they had mishandled. Upon flying back home, I checked with the initial airport (DXB), the transit airport (Kigali), and my final destination airport (Brazzaville). My luggage was not in any of the airports mentioned. In each airport, and the RwandAir office at the Brazzaville airport, I presented the initial lost luggage form from the prior week and it was apparent that nobody, no airport, and no office was interested in finding my luggage. RwandAir, at no point, apologized for losing my belongings or in any way attempted to make up for seriously harming my holiday- not to mention the fact that it appears I will never see my possessions that were last seen being taken by RwandAir staff at the beginning of my holiday travels."

Pros: "New plane, friendly crew"
Cons: "Cramped seating, poor signage & boarding announcements"

Pros: "Like Kigali it was clean and efficient."
Cons: "Food is almost inedible"

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: "I like the overall service in the plane."
Cons: "I didn't like changing the boarding time."

Pros: "Planes were great and flight crew excellent."

Cons: "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: "Food was beef brochettes, one of the best economy meals I have had. Wine was very good, from South Africa."
Cons: "Seats were not adjustable. It may be that I was in front of the exit row, but I looked and didn't see anyone leaning back anywhere. On the other hand, flight was only 1 hr 20 minutes."

Pros: "Clean planes"
Cons: "Ground crew at NBO - Rwanda Air has Kenyan Airways do the work in the terminals. Bad idea!"

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

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: "Very professional - gave us a good meal - although flight was a little more than an hour. Will recommend to friends"
Cons: "Service & good landing"

Cons: "The arrival time was stated as 1:40pm but in reality it was a 1:10pm arrival so I had arranged my driver to collect at the wrong time and he wasn't there when I arrived."

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"

Pros: "Amazing crew. Spacious and clean aircraft."

Cons: "Better seat More friendly crew"

Cons: "Comfier seats Some entertainment...there was none. Plane very hot and claustrophobic"

Pros: "It’s acctually the second time , just last week 23rd , our flight with delta got delayed that made us missed our connecting flight and I had to pass through Nairobi, female crew serving snacks came over to me with snacks and told me I ordered low fat food which I did and I asked her if it was ok if I had chicken that day she insisted that had ordered low fat mean and that’s what she has to serve me and I had to tell her again I needed chicken, she started arguing with me over snacks she got offended and she just threw food in my hand almost dropped to the floor , I think that was not professional at all. And today again coming to Nairobi the female crew came over serving snacks again and requested if I could have some wet wipes my hands were dirty dirty because had seen a crew handing out with to the people in the front raw but she answered me it was in the bank and she kept on and I again asked the male crew and he explained to me that they mostly don’t give wet wipes for short flights but I had wet wipes when I flew to Nairobi from Amsterdam and I had too when I left Nairobi to Uganda , what’s the point of serving foods when passengers gotta eat with dirty hands , and today again-the same female crew skipped the first raw of two males with snacks who were seated in front of us and even if they told her they missed the snacks, she stood there and called the male crew just unprofessionally to bring the snacks for the gentleman and she just never cared . I think they should do better thanks ."
Cons: "They should be more professional and friendly to people they act like they don’t care sometimes ."

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: "The crew amazing"
Cons: "I was traveling with a child and an infant. Would have been given a priority. We were in the queue waiting."

Cons: "Delayed by 4 hours, no explanation!"

Pros: "Service and flight itself"
Cons: "Changing the system to be repaired whenever someone needs to change the phone let be available especially to those who are traveling to other countries and they're new there and they need to do a calling for connection to people who are going to take them to different destinations."

Cons: "I am waiting at the airport to catch a flight tonLusaka. This is because I was bumped off my floor flight that I have no seat. Not sure when I will get ion that flight."

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."

Cons: "Since this was a short flight , I don’t have much comment."

Pros: "Airline and service"
Cons: "Asked for a window or aisle seat and wasnt given"

Cons: "I was very disappointed with Kenya Airways on my recent round trip from Kigali to New York to visit family for Christmas. Due to a delay on my connecting flight from Kigali to Nairobi, I missed my flight to JFK and had to stay in Kenya for a full day, shortening my already brief trip. I do not know what caused this delay other than Kenya Airways staff having seemingly no urgency to get us off the ground. On my return flight to Kigali a delay attributed to “operations” increased my layover from 8 hours to 12 hours. On top of the scheduled delay we were delayed an additional hour because boarding did not begin when it should have. I was also less than impressed with the movie selection on the plane. I will not be flying with Kenya Airways again and now understand why they were the cheapest option!"

Pros: "Kenya airways theme song"

Cons: "My flight never left Kigali and neither etihad nor Kenyan was able to help"

Pros: "Friendly crew and flight was punctual"
Cons: "No inflight entertainment"

Pros: "Stewards polite and mindful"
Cons: "Weather"

Pros: "Comfortable seats, smooth flight, good service on board"
Cons: "Did not care for insect spraying, limited entertainment / movie choices."

Pros: "Boarding was on time. The flight attendant’s response to my call and request for a blanket...first she smiled as if my request was ridiculous but still went ahead to get me the blanket and we joked about it cause the cabin was getting too cold for me and if she hadn’t given me a blanket I would have caught a cold!"
Cons: "Delay to take off, and spaying of the cabin with insecticide when passengers have boarded!"

Pros: "Everything worked like a flight should work from check-in to landing"
Cons: "Food was minimal and rather tasteless, but not a real concern"

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

Pros: "We missed our flight from Nairobi to kigali by 2 min. They wouldn’t hold the plane for us. We have to wait in yheairport for 7 hours. Got nothing. Very dissapointed. Bad customer care."

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."

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: "customer service was superb entertainment screens and selection was excellent seats were among the best on any airline. The plane was a seemingly fairly new Boeing Dreamliner, very nice"
Cons: "Food was good but not spectaular - not up to Singapore Airlines for example but better than most other long haul carriers"

Cons: "nothing"

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."

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

Pros: "The flight arrived early to Bangkok"
Cons: "The plane was old. Some seats didn't recline. My husband's sound system didn't work. The audio selection was minimal. The bathroom started out filthy with urine everywhere, and stayed that way. These things are inconvenient on a 10 hour flight!"

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

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

Cons: "After my transfer in nairobi, my luggage was lost and when my luggage tag was entered, there was no record of where my luggage is. Platinum on skyteam and no one can help...Kenya airways strikes again. Just glad they didn't last minute change the flight to go to Bujumbura first like they did with my outbound flight."

Pros: "All in all was good -"
Cons: "three of us were travelling together with 3 bags. Two bags didn't come - they were left in Nairobi. We were in Nairobi more than 3 hours so it should have been enough to get the bags on the plane. This is super frustrating - also can Kenya Airways not deliver bags in nairobi if they left them. I do understand when flight connections are tight etc, but this wasn't."

Pros: "The arrival to Monrovia."
Cons: "Losing baggage for a week."

Pros: "Friendly staff Good food"
Cons: "The movies were not working"

Cons: "The flight was 5 hours late, we were not informed while waiting or why it was late. It was very frustrating, especially that Nairobi airport has no free wifi. Kenya Airways is not to the standards of other Sky Team companies."

Cons: "so arrive on KQ flight from bangkok which had been delayed so missed connecting flight to arusha. Then due to a complete lack of communication within the kq staff they made me miss the next connectign flight too and then expected me to wait another 10hrs for the next available flight to arusha."

Pros: "Almost evrything to do wtih the flight."
Cons: "Airline left my bag in Nairobi. Still don't have it now 33 hours later."

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

Pros: "The food was great. Ate rice and chicken and had bread. Even with a short flight, they offered a meal, drinks and coffee. Also enjoyed the comfort, because the flight was not full. I had an extra seat of room which was very nice. The crew was also very helpful and nice."
Cons: "Before my flight, the workers at the gate would not let me enter earlier than 1 hour prior to departure. Also there was no entertainment offered on this flight although there were systems in place."

Cons: "The Nairobi-Jo-burg flight was also delayed and this cause my airport transfer to give up on picking me up at 1:45 in the morning in a huge city that I am not familiar with. Crew tended to overlook me for headsets, snacks etc"

Cons: "2 hours late"

Cons: "Poorly organised meal service"

Cons: "Flight was delayed and caused me to miss my connecting flight on another airline that had no other flights that day. As a result of the lack of communication and general lack of professionalism, staff refused to rectify the situation and take responsibility, and I was forced to stay overnight. Worst"

Pros: "They an amazing crew"
Cons: "They need to improve on the flight check-in and boarding at thier airport in Bole, it is so messy. Also thier inflight menu is nothing special"

Pros: "seat not comfortable"
Cons: "more drinks along the way"

Cons: "The delay time was too much for no proper reason"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything starting from the check in to on board restrooms"

Pros: "Crew was really great - helpful and kind."
Cons: "Both flights delayed which meant I missed my connecting flight. Stuck in Rome airport for several hours with no information about rescheduled flight. Finally figured it out with help of Rome airport information desk."

Pros: "Very good,on time good service"
Cons: "Better seats on business in boing 737 800"

Pros: "Way more leg room than I expected. The crew was very nice, the announcements were made in 3 languages, which was nice for the non-Amharic speakers!"
Cons: "Boarding in Lomé took a long time, which I believe made us a little later at the airport. Not sure if that is something fixable or not"

Pros: "I love the entertainment and frequent availability of food and drinks"
Cons: "The seats are too squished together. I was stuck next to a fat woman who kept shutting off my movies by hitting the controls of my arm chair"

Cons: "No Gin & Tonic Bus transfer to airplane for international flight? Twice...?"

Pros: "The crew was great. Extremely accommodating for families."

Pros: "on time"
Cons: "they woke me up in the middle of the night to give me food.."

Pros: "Crew was friendly. Food somewhat better than prior leg but far from business class standard."
Cons: "Plane fittings coming apart; dirty seats; no personal screens - they use an overhead CRT! Didn’t know such old panes were still being used by Ethiopian. While friendly, crew could be more attentive to travelers needs - eg refills, water etc."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "we had an overnight stay in addis ababa so we got a free accommodation in town, that was so great, a chance to see town and get a good night sleep before our next flight. the plane is big with screens so you can watch movies, the seat is comfortable, even for a tall guy like me (1.9 m)."
Cons: "It did took a lot of time since we landed until we got our bus to take us to town to our hotel. we waited in the airport for more than one hour, it was late, and we were tired. but after we got to the hotel, it was perfect"

Pros: "Staff are friendly and pleasant. Seats are comfortable with more space than some airlines.Good choice of films."
Cons: "This was probably the worst boarding I have ever seen. They called the Paris flight while people were still boarding for Frankfurt. It was chaotic, with people struggling to find which line to be in. There was no visible guidance from Ethiopian ground crew. Eventually got in line. One guy checking boarding passes for both business and economy. Very slow with again no crowd control. Children were not given priority. Eventually many people went through business queue while others had been waiting in economy. Ground staff were standing around watching and not helping or communicating. Poor show from Ethiopian!"

Pros: "Ethiopian Airlines it great."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Attendants were courteous and the spacing is better than some airlines, but that’s about it."
Cons: "Check in was a disaster: no logical control of 100s of people; delayed on the tarmac for 1:45 for a “minor technical reason” that apparently had nothing to do with the actual operation of the plane that prevented me from making my next flight. Food was terrible. Flight attendants could have been more helpful about my missed connection."

Cons: "Cabin crew quite distracted. Between rows 19-23, orders were totally mixed up People given wrong food or drinks"

Cons: "On board attendants not the friendliest Kids food options very limited"

Pros: "Lots of leg room, pillows, blankets..."
Cons: "Breakfast was cold and runny eggs, not so nice. And no vegetarian option offered."

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

Cons: "The entire flight was great!"

Pros: "Crew members were friendly....."
Cons: "No entertainment"

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Good not that great - a suggestion - why not something like fresh bread (sandwiches) with cheese and tomato on it - bread often not so fresh"

Pros: "Very calm, professional and willing to help you enjoy the flight as much as possible. They show true concern and not a detached professional management that you get from most flight attendants of other airlines."

Cons: "The services at the airport was terrible. The Booked me a flight with only a 30 minute layover. When I try telling the people before boarding the plane, big Norred me. When I told the flight attendant she said she would talk to the captain to see if there’s a way I could get a ride to my next plane so I wouldn’t miss it. That never happened. When we got off the plane no one at the airport would help us and when I was trying to run to my next terminal one of the officers at the airport told me to slow down because I wouldn’t miss the plane and I was fine. When I asked help with directions and told him I was afraid of missing my flight people laughed and walked away. When I finally found my terminal and got to it, my flight had already took off seven minutes prior. I absolutelyHated my experience flying with Ethiopian air. The seats are uncomfortable on the plane, not all the seats recline back the same level, and when I was eating dinner I decided to eat chicken since I can’t eat beef and halfway through the check in my stomach started her and I looked up the chicken and it was still pink inside."

Pros: "Excellent food, very friendly and helpful crew e"
Cons: "Entertainment center did not work Limited storage place in business class for items like mobile devices etc"

Pros: "This was an A-350 and the plane was very nice. Better entertainment system than the 777. The flight was smooth and the food was good."
Cons: "It took quite a while before the first service. It would be nice to have a drink service sooner."

Cons: "flight smelled like pee"

Cons: "The plane from Entebbe to Addis Ababa was very old with tight seating."

Cons: "Did not provide special meal although I called ahead to request it."

Pros: "food and beer were fine"
Cons: "4 flights ,4 delays. poor customer service . every things is very slow ."

Cons: "flight got delayed"

Pros: "Children running up and down isles screaming while I was trying to rest. I had to go to the rear of the plane to ask the stewardess to bring it to a stop. They should have stopped it BEFORE I had to ask them to stop it."

Pros: "The flight was on time and they fed us well."
Cons: "Nothing really."

Pros: "their business class was very good and a huge difference than economy, well done"
Cons: "the seat space is the smallest I have seen in economy. i took one sector economy and the other business. no blankets for guests"

Pros: "POLITE AND GENTLE CREWS. SERVICE WITH A SMILE. AIR FARE REASONABLE COMPARED TO OTHER AIRLINES"
Cons: "IF FARE IS CHEAP THAN THAT DOES NOT MEAN THE SERVICES SHOULD BE POOR"

Cons: "We were delayed for 30 minutes, then for one hour, then they announced a delay for 3 hours. They changed the gate twice and the staff was not communicating what is happening and when we are supposed to board. Also, they did not add my miles for my connecting flight."

Pros: "Flight was smooth"

Pros: "The flight attendants were lovely."
Cons: "The movie selected for the flight was not my preferred genre. Maybe a family film would be better."

Pros: "Was a bit concerned because I only had a 45 min layover in Addis to change plans, howeve Ethiopian Air made sure we were met coming of the plane and facilitated a fast transit. Checked luggage also all made it through. I was pleasantly surprised. I flew Nairobi to Cape Town with connection in Addis."

Pros: "787 was comfortable"
Cons: "Food was edible but no more. Flat angle beds I thought had been extinct, especially on a new 787"

Pros: "Entertainment options were good and they fed you several times"
Cons: "-changed flight schedule several times after booking ticket -3/4 segments were delayed causing me to miss connections - staff unaware of procedures -several mechanical problems with plane -still do not have bags after 7 days -no compensation provided for inconvenience -poor customer service"

Cons: "The food is terrible."

Cons: "extremely old airplane, mediocre food, almost non-existent in-flight entertainment."

Pros: "No delays The food on board was good. The drinks were fine My luggage was safe"
Cons: "The basement waiting area at the Addis Ababa airport was very cold and the toilets were dirty and smelly as well The crew were unfriendly and unreasonable the time of alighting"

Pros: "Entertainment was good."
Cons: "There were tons of announcements in 3 or 4 languages which really was so annoying. Staff didn't seem friendly, lots of confusion there. Plane seemed every old and run down. Short stop in Paris took forever."
