Cons: "The boarding at DBX was chaotic. It was disorganized and not executed properly - boarding was not done by priority or by zone in the begininng. Unaccompanied minors were boarded at the end, they should have been boarded first and their cabin baggage take care of first. The quality of food is average ... it used to be much better. No alcohol was served in the flight; was not provided even after requesting one; didn't bother to ask again. The choice of movies were limited"
Pros: "Amenities - ear plugs and basic things are good. Dint see this in other flights till now in economy. Good movies collection."

Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, food was good and entertainment great. Space between front row seats in economy class was good."
Cons: "all good."
Pros: "The flight from Johannesburg to Dubai on an Airbus A380 was the best , the return was on the 777ER it's a bit older avoid it if you can, I prefer the a380 it's roomy, more comfortable and modern, the food was good, the cabin crew very helpful and friendly and both flights were on time. I'll be flying only Emirates from now on"

Cons: "Need more recently released US movies Options are so few Not enough African movie either"
Pros: "I loved all the free services. Wifi, 2 large and tasty meals with free drinks (wine, beer) free exit row seating, seats reclined more than other airlines and free baggage. The staff was awesome and very helpful."
Pros: "Price."
Cons: "Crew attitude. Business seat was broken and they could have cared less. Business Class on A380 is a joke. Narrow seats, too few disorganised crew arguing amongst themselves and a bad attitude off at least three of them."
Pros: "E v e r y t h i n g ..... I understand now why they are the number ONE airlines in service. We travel enough to see the BIG difference. Thumbs up. Please don't change !!!!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "New movies were not available"
Pros: "They still catch my attention, and while traveling with them I continue to enjoy this airline."
Cons: "As per my Oslo - Dubai review (read there for more details), they cancelled my flight, put me on a flight a day later, and then left me with the bill and the inconvenience. This was the connector out of Dubai and back to Johannesburg. I've flown with them many times and I've picked up one or two small cut backs they've made like no hot towel when you get onboard, only before your arrival, and the meal seems a little more slimmed down (but still pretty tasty), They used have one or two extras which they've now taken away. Not sure why?"
Cons: "I like the seat is wider, more leg room. It's quite silent compare to 777. I also feels it's spacious compared to 777."
Pros: "Crew were very nice"
Cons: "Seat cushions are horrible There is no padding. 'All the chairs dirty too. Decor was very old"
Cons: "Rude and racist cabin crew!"
Pros: "The crew member was excellent,she went all out to make my journey easy and comfortable.I have sent an email to her superior,please use her as an example.if all attendants can serve and see to passengers like her will be beneficial for emirates"
Pros: "Friendly staff awesome planes wonderful experince"
Cons: "Service was a bit slow. Drinks and food took quite sometime to arrive."
Cons: "The people at ticket issuing counter is very arrogant. Customs form was not given while issuing ticket and I was sent back to the airline ticketing counter and had to stand back in line for customs."
Pros: "It was a smooth flight"
Cons: "It was ok"
Pros: "The plane was nice. Boarding process was quick. Food and entertainment were great."
Pros: "The food was delicious, and I received the special meal I had requested with no problem. Again, great selection of TV shows and movies."
Cons: "The crew seemed a bit put off, just not very friendly. Maybe something had happened that put them all in a bad mood I'm not sure. Despite this they did help people without complaint, but you could tell they didn't want to be there. Again on this flight the TVs were an old model that was difficult to use, you had to push really hard and finagle your finger to get it to read what you were pressing."
Pros: "Liked the entertainment."
Cons: "Some of the crew members were rough. Bashing the passengers and missing the courteous approach. Especially the segment between Dubai to Hyderabad. No snacks available in the kitchen between meals on the long 14 hours flight segment."
Pros: "Very Friendly and smiley crew"
Cons: "Boarding announcement and system were unorganized"
Pros: "Granted I was tired after being in transit for 24 hours, but this final of 4 long-haul flights was a real bummer compared to the other flights. Boeing 777 packed to 100% capacity."
Cons: "Really cramped and squished compared to other flights. Toilets at DXB were filthy (I searched around for the cleanest, which was still disgusting), with the cleaning attendant standing around in the restroom doing nothing. Duty Free shops really expensive compared to European airports. Meal on board (breakfast) was really terrible (and that taking into account that airline breakfast is always bad), really the worst I've ever had on a plane, even the Croissant was chewy and very dry. Emirates has become a massive sausage machine people-mover. It has loss its finesse and exceptional service."
Pros: "Amazing"
Cons: "Nothing. This is the best airline ever!"
Pros: "The staff were wonderful and efficient. The toilets were clean and the food was much better than my first flight with emirates although the portions were small on the main meal with only four spinach ravioli offered in a tomato sauce."
Cons: "Passengers do not fit on to their seats and overflow into the space you are occupying which is so tiny as it is. There is not enough room to even reach down to pick something up if you drop it. Overhead lockers are full. I think planes either need to be redesigned with sleeping compartments (such as the second class compartments the trains have) for overnight flights or seats need to be slightly larger to make up for the fact most people are larger today."
Cons: "THe Hostess was not attentive and had to ask for things a few times. No goody basket was given although some pax did get it."
Pros: "it was nice trip with emirates, You have excellent services Thanks"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Food, over all experience."
Cons: "I had a middle chair D45 and the person setting next to me was over wight. I had to standup most of the trip time and when forced to set I had to set by my side to fit into the chair. No body did help."
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "Cabin temperature was too warm"
Pros: "They were helpful"
Cons: "The entertainment services on the plane"
Cons: "The plane was 1 hour late to board. This is very inconvenient as I had a connecting flight, with layover of an hour and a half! I had to run like hell just to make it in time for the boarding of my second flight!"
Pros: "The only good thing about Turkish Airline was the entertainment, the movie selection was pretty good."
Cons: "I did not like flying with Turkish Airline. Worst experience ever for travel. Kept us on the the plane for hours while fixing the technical issue. The food is disgusting, the crew does not speak very well English. They do not come quick enough when you want something. I would not recommend Turkish Airline to anyone. We had to pay extra for sears that were given, should have been given to us for free considering they treated us badly on our start of the journey."
Cons: "The are not nice at all"
Pros: "The staff the staff the staff. They made the trip so enjoyable. The A330-300 aircraft was smooth and silent. Very impressed"
Cons: "The seats in business class were not as soft as they could be but very impressed overall and good value for the cost of the business class ticket"
Pros: "Cozy big leather seats in Business Class, excellent breakfast and good service overall. Turkish Airlines continued to amaze me."
Cons: "Boarding by bus - not my favorite way of getting on a plane. Probably not the airlines's fault."
Pros: "Food, drinks and entertainment were good."
Cons: "Before my flight I choosed my seat online and it was aisle seat. But when I checked in at airport they changed my seat to middle seat. I am not sure why there is a option to choose my seat if they are not going to honor it. Also seats were very little and there is not much room. I am only 5.4 and 140 pound. So not sure how big people can handle seating there for 10 hours."
Cons: "Long layover overnight when most of the airport is closed and minimal space to snooze."
Pros: "Courteous service, onetime arrival,"
Cons: "Options for vegetarians were not really good."

Cons: "second leg (Istanbul to Johannesburg) crew were rude!!!"

Cons: "Need to have better boarding and organization."
Cons: "The food was a bit tastless"
Pros: "Great entertainment system (though nothing new since my last flight 2 weeks ago)."
Cons: "As all airplanes, seats are somewhat cramped, and the food, while good enough, is pretty much the same it is on every Turkish Airlines flight. Some more variety might be nice."
Pros: "Service, food, staff—all excellent!"
Cons: "The cabins on both flights were too warm."
Pros: "Great service in the airplane plus they offer some amenities like slippers, tooth paste and toothbrush, they offer you wet towels to clean and refresh yourself during he flight. Really good."
Pros: "The food is not bad, and the crew was good. The in flight entertainment selections were also good."
Cons: "The seats are too small to recline for someone who is about 185cm tall. I was not able to sleep, in spite of the late hour of the flight. Had a one hour layover in Istanbul, and the gates were at opposite sides of the crowded airport, which made the connection difficult."
Cons: "Very disorganized the gate checking, staff ne d hospitality training . You ESP not have time for your queries and concerns . They are always in a hurry to finish talkign to you . Poor hygiene. The bathrooms are very dirty and has nomjand soap to wash your hands . Male staff in board come across unpolite. ingelt inwelcomed by the male flight attendant port side at the back.?"
Pros: "I was upgraded to first class. Awesome flight. Great food"
Pros: "Boarding"
Cons: "The food was rubbish. I ordered Hindu veg meal. The food was just plain and there was no glavors at all."
Pros: "Good entertainment system with lots of options."
Cons: "The plane was uncomfortably warm throughout the (long!) flight, which made it difficult to get any rest."
Cons: "They refused to print my boarding pass when I made to the counter on time. Because I didn't have a boarding pass I could not make the flight and had to rebook for 3 days later"
Pros: "food, entertainment"
Cons: "I liked everything"
Pros: "The food and amenities were nice"
Cons: "Customer service was bad when checking in, the flight left late from LAX, almost made us miss our flight from IST, my friend's luggage was lost."
Pros: "Turkish Airlines generally has great personal entertainment systems for their passengers."
Pros: "I had a most pleasant experience flying from New York, NY to Kiev, Ukraine. Everything about the service was just right. Thank you for your kindness and attention to detail. From now on I will only fly Turkish Airlines when going to Kiev."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "It was so hot. A nightmare ! I Asked again and to turn it on. They did for few minutes at a time. Very upsetting"
Cons: "It was so hot. A nightmare ! I Asked again and to turn it on. They did for few minutes at a time. Very upsetting"
Pros: "Better than average in flight service. Excellent in flight entertainment"
Cons: "Poor customer service. What the Turkish airliines claims to provide for passengers with long stopover (free tour etc.) on its web site did not happen. We got inconsistent and not helpful information from different Turkish representatives. Tight seat configurations. Uncomfortable for a 12+ hour flight."
Pros: "Outstanding service Excellent food Adequate entertainment Seat recline was good for economy"
Cons: "For a long flight (8+ hours) legroom on this Airbus was quite cramped Again poor boarding announcements resulted in very chaotic boarding process"
Pros: "The crew in the flight is amazing! Very attentive"
Cons: "The Tel Aviv airport check in is a nightmare!! We were there 3 hours ahead of our flight and the line would not move. Finally made it to the front 20 min before our flight!!! The people in the check in bags did not care if we missed our flight, was very rude and sloooooowwww!!! I have been to many airports and this is by far the worst! I had to run to my gate and ran into another check where they let me pass bc my flight was about to close! Made it 2 minutes before the bus left! Nightmare!!!"
Pros: "Movies"
Pros: "Nice staff"
Pros: "Traveling business class makes all the difference, as it should. Trolley service lets one see and choose a meal. Attendants were very nice and helpful. Also, the Turkish Air Lounge in Istanbul is incredible and almost worth a destination in its own right."
Pros: "I eventually arrived at the destination."
Cons: "Difficult to communicate with cabin crew due to lack of English. Flight was delayed by 1 hour. General atmosphere on plane was chaotic I think due to the small plane and length of flight as large numbers of people needed to use toilets."
Pros: "Great"
Cons: "Great"
Pros: "Turkish airlines is a wonderful company to travel on. I love the service, professionalism, kind, and patient service during the flight. Thank you!"
Cons: "I don't like landings but the crew did well!!"
Pros: "Not trying to be flattering here but it really is a good airline."
Pros: "I liked the dates and time, the food and it was over all a good flight"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The variety of films on show was decent"
Cons: "The crew skipped our aisle whilst delivering the toiletry bags, some announcements were made purely in Turkish without regard to English passengers. The boarding gate from Istanbul was opened much later than the advertised times."
Pros: "excellent food, service"
Pros: "Unfortunately for Turkish A. the plane was less than 1/3 full...tourism to and from Turkey seems to be way down for a number of reasons. That made it spacious coupled with a relaxed pace of passengers and crew. The lunch served was quite tasty and satisfying. No hassles about carryons weight or size. Electronics aboard seemed to work fine for those interested."
Pros: "I liked the entertainment options during the flight."
Cons: "1) Since we had a long layover at Istanbul, the airline provides the option to take you to a free hotel to spend the night. I knew this information based on online reviews, but the airline itself never did anything to offer this, I had to walk around on the airport, for like 2 hours I could not find decent help and some instructions in broken English. I had to pay 25 Euros to get mi visa stamped and walk out of the airport. The Turkish Airlines attendant that set up the free hotel for us, walked us to a shuttle that would drive us to the hotel, but the shuttle driver got lost? or something happened that caused for him to drive around town for more than an hour, speaking on the phone loudly in Turkish and completely ignoring us when we asked questions, This got a little scary since we had no idea what was going on, at some point we were in the middle of a dark residential area, and listening to the driver yell on the phone (god knows what). Luckily a driver came over and guided us to the hotel, but seriously, they should be careful about who they hire for these kind of tasks. (I posted a video on instagram with footage of the guy driving us around in case my family needed to find me)."
Pros: "Good food and movie selection. Nice pillows and comfort kit."
Pros: "excellent service"
Cons: "Too bad they did not share snacks during the flight"
Pros: "Getting off the plane, getting on the plane"
Cons: "The inhumane incarceration that was the overnight layover. I had no idea it would be so awful and regret having booked with Turkish Airlines"
Pros: "Boarding was on time and the service was nice. The cabin crew were nice too."
Pros: "Turkish delights on-board"
Cons: "Chaos at the Istanbul terminal. Connecting flight was literally a mile away. We had to run through the entire terminal only to miss our connection. No help/information from the airline. They made us walk even more to get us transferred to hotel for a night. Their crew repeatedly lied about how to get new boarding passes as they were busy and didn't want to do it for us. Sent us to another transfer desk. No veg. food option even after making a special request. They said sometimes those mistakes happen. You can't call the crew from your sit to get snacks. They make you get out of your middle sit and walk to the back of the plane to get a sandwich. The boarding process at the Istanbul airport is even more chaotic. They have their own security (after having done security at the o origin in Rome AND at the IST airport), which requires standing in an hour long line and getting profiled and judged by the airline staff."
Pros: "Helpful cabin crews"
Cons: "Interval between servings of meal is too long"

Always exceptional service

Cons: "J’ai eu à payer un bagage supplémentaire sur internet à 160 euros. Mon compte a été débité et à l’aéroport de Dakar les agents au comptoir me disent qu’ils ne retrouvaient pas le payement du troisième bagage. J’ai été obligé de repayer le bagage comptant à 190€"
Pros: "Crew asked us if we’d like to move to an empty row to be more comfortable without us even requesting it."
Cons: "Bigger coffee cups? Really nothing to complain about. Everything I would expect from a flight. A++"

Cons: "Wish there was more elbow room in the seat. I am a big guy and I was having to squish myself so as to not interfere with my neighbor"
Pros: "Spacious business class seats, excellent meals"
Cons: "Lack of ventilation in cabin, and staff refusal to turn heaters down (in September), very limited entertainment options."
Pros: "Not much, seats are super uncomfortable"
Cons: "Better code sharing with KLM"
Cons: "No leg room at all, cant believe those seats met legal standard. The plane smelled, boarding was a nightmare because too many people had big bags. An announcement had been madd that vags would be collected, but obviously were not."
Cons: "More options for gluten free food. Always get the same dish"
Pros: "Staff were friendly and seats in business were super comfortable."
Cons: "boarding groups were not adhered to and those in a lower boarding group often boarded well after those in later boarding groups."
Cons: "There was no entertainment available."
Pros: "The crew ask some of us to help seating a family group together. No objection. Then they went out of their way to make the trip more enjoyable for us... even offering a drink of Champagne wine (the true one, not some substitute)... Departed almost on time, arrived a few minutes early..."
Pros: "The new movies selection, food was very good, staff more friendly than previous flights"
Cons: "Boarding always a problem on MEA we have to wait too long in the queue"

Cons: "Departure delayed, reschedules and then cancelled without any direct notification to us with 2 first class tickets !! If we didn’t have Kayak we would be sitting in the airport !,,"
Pros: "The plain was ok, the crew really nice and attentive. The only “problem” would be the food, mostly for the breakfast that was awful."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The plane (Boeing 777) is packed like a sardines can, with 10 narrow uncomfortable seats across in Economy Class. The crew didn't even bring water for an 1,5 hr into the flight! The plane was very hot, with very little air flowing through the salon. Food was bland for dinner and inedible for breakfast. The crew was barely there, and borderline rude when asked something."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed so we could not make out connecting flight. We had to wait 6 hours get another flight to Atlanta and then fly to Boston the next day, longest flight ever was horrible I called out sick from work too."
Pros: "The cabin crew was super patient and accommodating of the passengers."
Cons: "Cramped quarters"
Pros: "Very nice stews. Food was A plus compared to US airlines AND included. Great list of movies etc."
Pros: "25 min ahead schedule!!!"
Cons: "Cabin space, too narrow rows."
Pros: "Great food (Economy class). Good Service"
Cons: "Not enough bathrooms on Economy class area due to aircraft design."

Cons: "Airplane delay to take off 1 unknown reason After landing in Paris 50 min sitting inside airplane moving around Late for flight transfer. Sitting in Paris airport 5 hours. Customer service no working. Never fly Air France anymore !"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "1/ the transfer crew needed 50 mn to enter my son’s visa number in her computer and she almost let us miss our flight 2/ we were separated (party of 3, my son being 5 YEARS OLD) - how can they allow a boarding and expecting my 5 year old to do a 10 hours flight BY HIMSELF???? 3/ no kids menus, even if I had ordered it before 4/ food in general was very mediocre 5/ crew was unprofessional and they acted bored"
Pros: "The crew were nice."
Cons: "The boarding process was horrible and it involved climbing down steep stairs from the air tunnel to the tarmac to board a bus that took us to a far distance where the plane was parked. Had to new walk in the sweltering heat to the plane can climb up steep stairs in the heat! We were now kept in the plane for another hour with no aircondotion. It was boiling hot in there. We had to use the safety manuals to fan ourselves. We eventually left late and got to Lagos one and half hours we were meant to get there. Lastly not all the luggage arrived. Two days into my arrival and I am yet to get all my luggage. It was truly a horrible experience which was echoed by fellow passengers."
Pros: "Crew were pleasant most of the time"
Cons: "Boarding process is total chaos Took 40 mins to.check in at desk , pre ordered for wheelchair Never showed ...total zoo Beds advertised as lie flat bu they are NOT 180 degree flat , legs hang down - bad for circulation"
Pros: "The cheese and the bread"
Cons: "The unprofessional staff during boarding and food serving"
Pros: "Always like Air France. They are in tune with keeping the traveler updated."
Cons: "Walked all over the terminal looking for signage for Croatia Airlines. Information services sent me to the right location, but it was marked Air France. I asked serval Air France employees for Croatia Air. None new that Air France was the CA carrier. Finally found one who bothered to look it up on her computer and low and behold, AF was the carrier!"

Pros: "That it was a night flight"
Cons: "No airconditioning, no food choice, no space."
Pros: "All crew I interacted with was great, friendly, and helpful."
Cons: "Flight was late. Boarding very slow. Entertainment was ok by today's standards. Each seat had a display, but movie selection was not great. For a French airline I was looking forward to breakfast -- maybe some nice pastries or at least a decent croissant with jam. None such. It was disappointing. Meals were not impressive either, but the complimentary wine was good."
Pros: "The service and food were excellent plane was clean."
Cons: "No entertainment system"
Pros: "The food was good."
Cons: "I feel comfortable flying when I can see out the window so don't force me to close my window shade.The flight attendants kept forcing me to close my shade. Also new planes would be nice. Sick of flying on outdated technology."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The food was really poor. The chicken was as dry as it can be. The food taste was poor. I flow 3 weeks ago with KLM and the food was pretty good for flight food. Plus I didn't get my baggage at the end."
Pros: "Cabin Crew and food selections were top notch"
Cons: "Seat configuration as a first class ticket was awful. Same configuration as economy class but by leaving the middle seat empty constituted first class. I'm 6'-1" and missed the legroom...."
Cons: "Meal choice missing kosher non-gluten combination."
Pros: "Best flight I've ever flown. Blankets and pillows provided with many options for movies."
Pros: "Food and service"
Cons: "Too many business class seats and the plane is so big it basically feels like flying on coach. You have two seats next to the window so it's exactly the same when trying to get up than in economy class with a passenger stuck next to you"
Cons: "Left a little late for no apparent reason."
Pros: "Same as above, the crew was very friendly and the food was great."
Cons: "Seating was cramped and uncomfortable for a tall person."

Pros: "Flight time changed without notice. Delays in Medinah caused us to miss our connecting flight to Johannesburg. Really poor communication. No agents would take calls in Jeddah. Really terrible service. Would avoid using this airline at all cost. Not the first time I've been delayed by them"
Cons: "Flight time changed without notice. Delays in Medinah caused us to miss our connecting flight to Johannesburg. Really poor communication. No agents would take calls in Jeddah. Really terrible service. Would avoid using this airline at all cost. Not the first time I've been delayed by them"
Cons: "Cabin crew quite distracted. Between rows 19-23, orders were totally mixed up People given wrong food or drinks"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit strange - everyone seated at the gate had to get up, leave the area, and then wait in line to have their passports checked before sitting back down in the same area. After that though, boarding was perfectly smooth & honestly one of the fastest I’ve seen!"
Pros: "Lots of leg room, pillows, blankets..."
Cons: "Breakfast was cold and runny eggs, not so nice. And no vegetarian option offered."
Pros: "Seats, pillows, blankets, entertainment system, crew."
Pros: "New plane fantastic cabin"
Cons: "There was a fight but nothibg to do with the flight crew just some passenger with mental issues"
Cons: "They didn’t announce when boarding started/what zones were to go."
Pros: "The quality of the planes"
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "The whole thing was a disaster. I lost my connection flight due to incompetence from the Ethiopian airlines representative"
Pros: "friendliness of staff. special attention given to my 22 mo old granddaughter. adorable!"
Pros: "I took a roundtrip to Addis Abeba, Ethiopia from Washington, DC. The trip was 13 hours there and 16 on the way back (I think that included a refueling stop in Dublin). There was plenty of food and beverages provided throughout the flight - usually every 3 hours or so. Blankets, pillows, and several movie/entertainment were provided."
Cons: "I would prefer the the main cabin lights be kept off longer."
Pros: "Everything Kosher food was excellent"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The crew where very pleasant, The service on the plane was good you had a choice of what meal you would like to have you also had a choice of any movie or entertainment that you would like to see or play there was more leg space and much more comfortable seating"
Cons: "I can’t fault anything on this flight."
Pros: "The friendliness and willingness to assist passengers when they notice one facing a challenge"
Cons: "The chairs in economy do not give sufficient leg room especially for tall persons, this would present a challenge on long haul"
Cons: "My phone was stolen on airport premises"
Pros: "the air craft was very good and the comfort is good no complain..."
Cons: "i did'n't like some of the cabin crew the way they are ....and am very disappointed from kinshasa to my check in i did ask a lady about my bag, she told me i will get my bag to cape straight, and i did ask her two times about the bag, she keep saying the same thing i will get my bag to cape town, so until now i haven't find my bag yet, the number they gave me from the airport no body pic up the phone, so i don't know what i can i do to get my bag......if you can hep me in this mater please contact me on my email or on my cell number 0027 78 470 6195. thank you your best regards."
Pros: "I like the entertainment,but the quality is not quite good in Amharic part."
Cons: "The food is very bad."
Pros: "Great crew, decent food"
Cons: "Chairs were not reclining. Asked for blanket and didn't get one so I was cold."
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!!"
Pros: "Comfortable flight, pleasant airline attendants."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Very helpful, attentive and kind cabin staff."
Cons: "Somewhat dirty ( and smelly ) aircraft even though they are a very new fleet. Some seats had strange patches and stains. Overall cabin experience can be improved in terms of hygiene and food quality ( food was mediocre or slightly worse). Seat ahead reclines almost too much into personal space in the new 787 aircraft. The LCD displays don't pivot so it's virtually impossible to view the entertainment when the occupant of the seat in front fully reclines ( a somewhat irritating issue on a long flight )"
Pros: "Again, the cabin crew where all very nice."
Cons: "Seating space was very tight on this plane."
Cons: "They almost didnt let me on the plane after THEY messed up by not including my ticket number on my ticket. I had to call my parents in Washington DC from Nairobi, have them drive out to Dulles airport and work it out at the Ethiopian office there to give the OK for me to get checked in in Nairobi. The whole process took about four hours and three managers all while I was stewing, worried I wouldnt make it on my flight."
Pros: "I need a refund what do I do for a credit?"
Pros: "Customer service was great and the restrooms were cleaned regularly unlike some long haul flights where it's not the case."
Pros: "The comforts offered in business class was most standard. In other words quite good. The food was middling. Also, 12 plus hours on a plane requires a larger selection of films. Finally, add wi fi."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "See above."
Cons: "See above."
Cons: "Seats were dirty"
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: "Same as above"
Pros: "The crew very kind and made me feel comfortable"
Cons: "Old 767, with not comfortable set up and no individual TV set."
Pros: "The best flight ever and the crew is super cool"
Pros: "Staff were pleasant"
Cons: "One segment of my flight did not have the gluten free meal I had requested ahead of time. Super crowded."
Pros: "Some okay entertainment."
Cons: "Lights are on too much, service is slow. Food is poor, no variety. They gave out all the blankets and some people were laying down sleeping in the back with 2-3 blankets meanwhile my friend who had a baby couldn't get a blanket. They are VERY slow or disorganized with picking up the trays after meals are completed."
Pros: "The crew were friendly"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Played a kids movie... I don't even think there was a kid on the plane. Everything about this flight had me feeling i wouldn't want to fly on Ethiopian again. Bad experience. Same as the flight above. Terrible food."
Pros: "It was a good flight, made only a little disappointing by all the children running through the plane, opening the washroom doors and leaving them open. A little strange, really."
Cons: "crew was the worst part. Id have to ask for something 3 or 4 times before i got it. couldnt really understand why a simple request like tea instead of soda was so difficult to fulfill."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable, had an emergency exit seat."
Cons: "Better variety of latest movies,"
Pros: "Food was adequate and good."
Cons: "Seats in both flight weren't adjustable."
Cons: "No screens on this aircraft"
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."
Pros: "Glad to receive small snacks for short flight Headphones were issued from from second flights, but not from Zanzibar"
Cons: "Check air on on plane as it was so lights that air doesn’t hit the face so it was very warm flight"
Cons: "Not many movies to chose from."
Pros: "Lazy crew dont even provide water when needed. The cabin was extremely hot and the blowers dont work."
Pros: "Easy going flight with friendly and hospitable crew"
Cons: "Plane was quite dirty inside and out"
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: "Should add more updated content in their inflight entertainment"
Pros: "I got a free upgrade."
Cons: "According to the KQ App the flight was direct to Cape Town but when we got to the airport we found the plane was stopping in Livingston’s. The result was we were an hour late. Most annoying. Surely the App can be amended to alert us of such changes"
Pros: "The crew on the final leg was really nice and helpful"
Cons: "From Entebbe to Nairobi I was cold during the flight. I wish I had been offered a blanket."
Cons: "By far the most uncomfortable and crowded plane I’ve ever taken."
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: "Short 1 hour flight, not much they can screw up."
Cons: "I’m still in Nairobi because they delayed the plane"
Pros: "Everything was great about my Kenyan Airways flight. Crew was super friendly and helpful."
Pros: "They should send us prior notice of changes in flights. My flights where delayed by almost 6 hours both inbound and outbound bound"
Cons: "Check in agents should do their job as per their description not wasting our time and keychatting with their collegues"
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: "Staff very friendly"
Pros: "crew in general helpful Cap kept us informed Price of ticket"
Cons: "Food so so. coffee never came"
Cons: "The plane boarded at 9:30am and then we sat on the tarmac for 5 hours waiting for a new pilot. We were not fed, or told how long it ws going to take. After 5 hours, we finally took off, but were not offered food for another two hours. The 11.5 hour flight turned into a 16 hour flight..."
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: "after 5 hours of waiting when there was no boarding started at boarding gate we came to know that flight is dealyed by 7 more hours. They provided hotel but it took 3 hours for us to clear immigration and reached hotel and after 1 hours they came to pick us back. there was no support from airlines staff and we were at won. Hotel was just waste because we just use for one hour in 12 hours delay."
Pros: "-Professional and courteous service by crew members. -Smooth flight, thanks to captain/pilot -Aircraft comfort."
Cons: "Timing schedule not respected. No legroom my knees were so squeezed."
Cons: "The airlines changed the flight date last minute. They told us they'll take us to a hotel but by the time we reached the hotel after a long wait for visa we only had 3 hours left to go back to the airport. I missed my connection flight from Bangkok and I had to spend a hotel in Bangkok which I ended up paying extra for my hotel in Bangkok and connection flight from Bangkok. The airlines was not willing to do anything about my other flight I missed and me spending overnight in Bangkok."
Pros: "Friendly crew, modern plane, good seats"
Cons: "Staff on the airplane a bit miserable. Uncomfortable seats and no choice of food. Going downhill"
Pros: "Late arrival Nairobi. missed flight"
Cons: "Late arrival Nairobi. missed flight"
Pros: "The flight was short."
Cons: "There was no clarity on baggage allowance on either leg of the flight. This created a situation in which I was charged two different amounts of extra baggage and given bad information on both the departure and return trip. It was also unclear that, though we'd purchased a Kenyan Airlines round-trip between Nairobi and Zanzibar, the outbound leg was operated by Precision Air. This was not indicated on our e-tickets. We found out at the airport."
Pros: "I was happy to arrive on time"
Cons: "Flight was delayed."
Pros: "Food. The pilot spent some time flying over the Victoria falls"
Cons: "Dirty bathroom"
Cons: "The airline doesn't accept payments for changing flights over the phone. I arrived at Lilongwe airport and they said I couldn't pay them there and that I should pay in Nairobi. The plane was of course late leaving Malawi and when I arrived in Nairobi, the plane was getting ready to leave. The customer service line had +20 people in it. I waited my turn then the agent said it was my fault that I missed the flight and the next flight would be $243 USD instead of $90 like the gate agent stated. Then they told me I had to pay the $243 in cash and they didn't accept credit cards. All of the ATMs were broken there. I returned to the agent and they did accept credit cards, they just didn't want to go to the office to swipe it. The entire ordeal took +4 hours. Worst customer service ever."
Pros: "Flight was ok"
Cons: "I got my items stolen . My bag was opened and pilfered I have made a report to the airline but still haven't heard anything"
Cons: "Lack of drink options, no diet cola?! Poor entertainment options"
Cons: "Delays"
Pros: "I was surprised at how good the food was. Really surprised to run into someone I knew from a previous trip to Kenya. She was assisting a handicapped person, so don't know if she worked for Kenya Airways or the airport. Unfortunately, there was no time to talk."
Pros: "Small seas no leg room and broken entertainment screen"
Pros: "Everything was great except for all but one flight attendant who could have done with a lesson in charm. There was one very charming attendant whose name began with M but was an unusual name. She was a world class attendant and the others could learn from her. The pilot was well spoken as did a great job taking off & landing."
Pros: "The pilots are very friendly and regularly updates passengers o issues"
Cons: "The crew on this route are very rude. My experience with them for the last 2yrs is just but a nightmare. They shout at passengers when requested for simple things like drinks, blankets and sometimes even ignore calls."
Cons: "Messy boarding Late departure"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "That the flight time was changed from 8am to 10am and we were not informed until check-in time. Then the flight was changed from 10 to midday, but we were only told during boarding and told to go for breakfast at some restaurant without getting directions. On arriving at the restaurant, we were made to sit in a waiting area for over 30 mins then later told to move to another restaurant, without directions. After going through the gate to board for the midday flight and waiting over an hour, we were informed that we were to fly at 4:15pm! The flight was uncomfortable with seats that had absolutely no leg room and non reclining seats"
Pros: "Crew and food"
Cons: "Hour late even though we had a late arrival of 1:35 am. Made us miss our airport transfer so it took over 2.5 hours to get to hotel"
Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "They lost my luggage going to AFRICA...didn't see the suitcase until 6 days later. When I received the suitcase, over $1000 in equipment was stolen , suitcase was all scrambled...I WAS ROBBED ! ...then on the return flight to HOUSTON, they lost my suitcase again ! W.T.F ?! No one has called me to apologize for anything ! I expect to be reimbursed for my loses, or I will sue the airline."
