being a flight attendant and using spécial fare I apreciate being treated equally to the other pax, the fact that the crew, when I informed them of my status, went to check if I had a good seat ( no one beside me, to be able to get good rest.) Those are important gestures towards the person. I look to more flights with KLM
Pros: "Friendly crew, great access to a variety refreshments, robust entertainment library."
Cons: "No suggestions."
Pros: "I liked how generous they were with food and drinks"
Cons: "Free WiFi could have made the flight a lot better"
Pros: "The crew was very kind"
Pros: "Staff were professional and polite."
Cons: "Despite zone boarding, boarding and disembarkation were very slow. Passengers like me with flight connections were very anxious regarding missing these."
Cons: "Information on arrival time was not correct"
Cons: "Half the screens were not working - crew were made aware but nothing was done. Vegetarian choices were poor to non-existent ; I witnessed crew insist to a passenger that there were no vegetarian options! They finally cobbled something together for him but not a pleasant experience"
Cons: "The plane is so old..,"
Cons: "I was seated next to the restroom, which is not a pleasant experience for an international flight."
Pros: "Crew was great, very responsive and hospitable!"
Cons: "more lunch choices, especially choices without dairy products."
Pros: "Crew helpful. Food good."
Cons: "Better range of movies please"
Pros: "Slow service."
Cons: "Better communication!"
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable seating with enough leg room."

Cons: "Too hot inside the aircraft"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"

Pros: "Friendly and efficient crew. I travel KLM often and always enjoy the flights."
Cons: "There were several flight delays and gates were changes a few times."
Pros: "The flight AMS to MEX was smooth, very helpful personnel on board, we enjoyed a bit more space and the seat seemed a bit more comfortable."
Cons: "Besides the seat relative comfort, it did not recline much at all, i wondered what the extra money (at least $5 or $600) got us. The food, wine/ beer service was same as regular economy, the boarding took place at same time as economy, no drink before take-off if only sparkling water. And the plane was old generation 747 and the entertainment was same vintage: screen was not very bright and the selection of films was poor. No plug to charge electronics. We were disappointed with KLM when comparing with other airline companies offerings when you book in Premium Economy."
Pros: "Very pleasant, professional crew"
Cons: "Very slow check in. Mainly because other passengers obviously don't read instructions re: weight/contents of cabin bags etc. Would be helpful if there was additional staff to deal with them away from check in desk. This would mean that others did not have to queue for 25 minutes because the check in girls also had to deal with them"
Pros: "Restrooms clean, decent food and drink, nice cabin crew."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The food rocks! I know that I will always be eating well with KLM. The staff is always so nice, professional and cordial...I always know I'll be in good hands with the flight."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "So many people on a 747!!"

Pros: "Airlines issue"
Cons: "Profiling certain customers"
Cons: "They stole my money"
Pros: "Helpful and smiling cabin crew."
Pros: "Pretty basic one hour flight so there's not much to complain about or praise about. I got some sleep which was good."
Cons: "The crew had their general Dutch aloofness on form. Chatted to one of the stewardesses in Dutch up until she saw I had a British passport then she decided she could only speak English to me."
Pros: "The flight was very good, specially considering it was a daylight one. Staff was friendly and servicial. Tue food was above the industry's average."
Cons: "Flight way delayed 3 hours. Staff gave no information and wouldn't help rebook us onto other flights. They gave us food vouchers 2 minutes before we finally boarded, so we couldn't use them. The food on the plane had spoiled so we were all starving on the flight, and we all missed our connections. Horrible experience and wouldn't fly with KLM again."
Cons: "Old airplane with not really comfy seats. No outlets for charging devices. Very old entertainment screen."
Pros: "staff was fine"
Cons: "old old plane, very uncomfortable. Tiny bad screen made movies pointless"
Pros: "I really like the spaciousness, the plug ins and general service"
Cons: "I have a dairy allergy but had no option to prepurchase a dairy free meal. It made for a very unenjoyable flight as I couldn't eat anything they had. What was worse was after I told them of my situation they said they understood and had a meal that would do but there was cheese, yogurt, milk chocolate, etc."
Pros: "No chargers or tv on planes"
Cons: "At Amsterdam we were told that our checkin luggage wouldn't be at Sydney!! Some low fat meals were terrible!"
Pros: "The crew were really helpful since I am a short person in putting my luggage away in the overhead compartment and attentive to everyone's needs. I am a fussy eater and don't really like airplane food but the food was actually really nice. We was given plenty of snacks and drinks in between meals as well. There was plenty of programmes to choose from to keep me entertained."
Cons: "The seats in economy were a little too small for a 12 hour flight"
Pros: "Free wee cake."
Cons: "Nothing in particular."
Pros: "Speed, crew, and reliability."

Pros: "The cabin crew were fantastic and funny"
Cons: "Tiny seats"
Pros: "Good food, good entertainment system, comfortable seating."
Cons: "Only one toilet working in business class. A crew member told me that it was a decision to fly with only one toilet to ensure no delay. There was a disgusting stench of sewerage for the complete flight from Amsterdam to Johannesburg. This was in all likelihood due to the broken toilet on the left side."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours. was not able to make connecting flight in Amsterdam. No flights from Amsterdam to final destination in the US. Lost one full day. Had to stay overnight. What a cluster mess. Will never fly with KLM airlines and would not recommend. Will spend a little extra money and fly on other airlines......very poor, disorganized, and horrendous flight experience. Buyer beware."
Pros: "The service of the crew onboard"
Cons: "Entertainment not to many recent movies and the boarding process was a little bit confusing."
Cons: "My Kosher meal never made it on-board. The cabin (and the airport) were way too cold"
The staff were excellent, very helpful and efficient
Cons: "The food was not as usual."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "1-2 +cms leg space"
Cons: "Comfort plus seats need some work. Very thin padding on a hard seat. The leg rest needs to come up higher so you don’t slide down while semi reclined. Nice compromise between business and coach though."
Pros: "Great crew and entertainment. Terrible experience at CDG airport but that’s the airports fault."
Pros: "Not much, seats are super uncomfortable"
Cons: "Better code sharing with KLM"
Cons: "Departure time was almost 2 hours late and the communication of the cabin crew regarding this issue was poor. Almost an hour went by without an update."
Cons: "This was one of the worst flights I’ve been on. Both planes were downright filthy. The flight from Dallas to Barcelona had several broken toilets. Flight from Paris to Barcelona boarded and once everyone was on board, they told us that we would be sitting there for 2 hours before leaving."
Pros: "The entertainment options were great."
Cons: "Seats are so cramped. I'm 5'3" and could use either arm rest because both people on either side spilled into my seat."
Cons: "Plane is old and entertainment facilities are no longer appropriate"
Pros: "Multiple crew members paid constant helpful attention to my mother (88yrs of age) during boarding, deboarding and throughout the entire flight. Thank you!"

Pros: "Great seat. Comfortable. Quick boarding."
Cons: "Asked flight attendant to wake me for breakfast....forgot. Long wait for bathroom,"
Pros: "Crew was very nice. Food was good and tasty."
Cons: "Plane seemed a little worn, which surprised me since it was an A380. Not that old. I had purchased an upgrade to a seat with more legroom, only to find out there was no USB plug for charging my phone. All standard seats have them. Would have been nice to be warned about that."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by at least an hour leaving Paris - a regular situation I experienced with AF."
Pros: "The staff were very helpful and professional. The air hostesses regularly checked if I was ok and showed concern when I wasn’t. They made what seemed a bad situation seem bearable."
Cons: "The food was not very nice and the option I wanted had run out. The entertainment was faulty and had to be reset several times. The comfort was below standard and needs to be improved."
Pros: "Crew was nice, too short of a flight to figure out more"
Cons: "no chance to try. Can’t pick a special meal in short term flights and snacks are not vegan"
Cons: "Horrible delay. I got letd to my next flyight. The airline stuff didn’t assist me at all and didn’t wanted to help me getting to my next flight. Horrible"
Pros: "Good quality flight"
Cons: "But delayed and lost baggage"
Cons: "I ordered Asian Vegetarian Meal. But they served me only pasta."
Pros: "Boarding staff helpful with Disabilities; food services quick and pleasant; interior cabin temps appropriate."
Cons: "Why is boarding so prolonged? 1-Small children and elders cannot stand for 20/30 minutes 2-Why are various sections (particularly Economy), no longer boarded by rows. and from rear first...so people don’t clog aisles, step over others, injure or be injured by heavy overhead moves?"
Pros: "Food was good and again, staff were friendly and professional. Flight was on time and efficient dis-embark mentioned."
Cons: "Slight issue with headphone connection, was not the only passenger."
Pros: "If the flight would have leave in time we would receive our luggage in time"
Cons: "I am not sure why this happened, but our daughter, travelling away from home for the first time, was targeted at every step of her journey. From the terminal in DCA to Cincinnati, to CDG. Delta/Air France clearly singled her out. i am outraged! I have traveled many, many times and have sent hundreds of students on nearly the same trip -- and none have had as rough a time as she had. They will be hearing from me."
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and always gave the feeling that they want the customers to feel comfortable and enjoy the flight. One of the crew members even offered me to move to an emergency exit seat (without me asking to move) because I am tall. Amazing!"
Pros: "Priority boarding with kids"
Cons: "Nothing special just like easyJet ir Rayanair"
Cons: "The flight was late, real late."
Pros: "The airplane have great entertainment system. The cabin crew are very nice."
Cons: "Movies were dated. Crew spoke limited and broken English, not good enough for international flights."
Pros: "Comfort, food and service are better than average."
Cons: "When stewardess opened overhead locker, something fell on my head."
Cons: "People may think,that the delay of the flight has set my mood for this review but I can ensure it has most definitely not. With all the bad weather, I was already very happy to connect right on time in Paris. However, a long haul A380 flight with such a tight seat configurstion is almost embarrassing for an airline. The in flight entertainment is at a very poor level, not only with the screen being very small and outdated, many of the movies are only available in French and the international selection very limited. The food was not much of a delight, whereas the presentation was nice. However, in all the 7 h between the services, nobody came around with refreshments in a completely booked flight, neither was announced that a trolly would be set for self service in the galley. Lucky the ones who got up and found out about. In terms of amenities, again, the airline is lacking of originality and saves cost. Bottom line: you get from A to B, but there are so many better competitors in the market, which I shall definitely consider on my next travel."
Pros: "Service was great, flight was on time and I really enjoyed everything"
Cons: "Little turbulence but overall it comes as usual so it was worth the flight"
Cons: "very old planes we waited 1 hour to drop our bags as their belt had an issue we had to pay extra 70 pounds to reserve a baby cot on the plane"
Cons: "Had to check in our underweight small carry on because there was no space left. Left out hotel at 3.15am. A dry croissant did not satisfy three hungry children for breakfast, the coffee was terrible and the seats too close together. Not a good experience."
Pros: "Friendly onboard staff"
Cons: "Treated like cattle while boarding unless your preferred member. Average food quality."
Pros: "the Airline"
Cons: "The Airport, Security, Boarder control."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled, I was sent around to multiple desks and terminals and no one wanted to assist me, then my luggage was lost."
Pros: "The crew nice people, boarding was fast and pleasant, the flight was pretty good"
Pros: "Airplane staff were good"
Cons: "The delay in the flight without even informing us of the reasons. Changing the boarding gates twice, and no options in the meal."
Pros: "Efficient check-in."
Cons: "It was raining in Prague so I can understand that luggage is going to get wet. But when we opened our luggage at least half of our clothes were wet. It would seem that the luggage sat out for quite a while prior to departure for that much soaking of clothes. Fortunately we are staying in Paris for a few days and can get our clothes dried out."
Pros: "Other crew members were very polite to us, in particular a younger tall woman."
Cons: "2 crew members, one named Terri were quite rude and short with us. I even heard her say she was ready to get off the flight. She also asked everyone around me if they liked their flight but did not ask me. She basically threw my coffee condiments at me and dismissed my concerns about the food. I was unsure if the fruit was expired and she quickly dismissed my question without any real explanation."
Pros: "I like the service of AF"
Pros: "Panamá airport is a disaster, unorganized and dirty"
Cons: "Panamá airport"
Cons: "Late...delayed from algiers"
Staff were very nice and professional. 🙏. International/domestic recheck was very confusing
All and all it was an easy flight. We were in business class. Strangely, while we were offered some food which we did not want, we were never offered anything to drink including water. The boarding process was a bit chaotic. Everyone had to identify there bags at the plane as a safety precaution which was fine. But the communications about this was non existent. Israel has a very strict protocol for entry. There is an entry form that must be filled in and then, if everything is ok, you get an e-mail approval that you must show to the airline. Instead of asking for this they asked to see our “green passport” which is only a document to be used in Israel. Luckily, we had copies of ours. All of this is not significant. As someone that lives in Israel but love Egypt, I am so happy that we have direct flights now.
Terrible! They refused to let me board because of new travel restrictions, then tried to charge me an additional 3,000 eu to rebook.

Pros: "Professionalisms of Crew"
Cons: "The Business Class lounge was OK, but we were through late at night and there was very little hospitality offered"
Pros: "I liked the new airplane. Compared to my jfk-cai flight the plane was spotless and everything worked. I didn’t feel like I was on a flying greyhound bus. The crew kept the bathrooms cleaner which was great."
Cons: "I was very disappointed that I couldn’t bring water through the gate security in Cairo to jfk. There was nowhere to purchase water after the gate so I felt dehydrated and inconvenienced by having to ask for water so many times."
Cons: "Almost ok"
Cons: "Boarding it was not good"
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Food, boarding, carry on bags checks, 1 hr waiting time for baggage claim at destination."

Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Entertainment Luggage claim Food"
Pros: "The seat was good"
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "The plane was old, the seats were uncomfortable with no adjustable headrest or flaps to hold your head from flopping. There was no personal entertainment screens on the back of the seats, only the small community one mounted on the roof. The sound for this was terribly unclear. 8 hour boring flight."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and the seat with comfortable"
Cons: "The crew run the safety video after take off it’s should be before take off .."
Pros: "There is nothing I like when I travel with egypt air we lost our bag and finally they find it after 9 hours Really bad experience with egypt air"
Cons: "They need to really understand the difference betweeen the business and economy ppl pay extra to feel comfort and have a priority boarding but in EGYPTAIR business and economy is the same no difference"
Pros: "Service not bad, other then that not good"
Cons: "Straight flight is better then connecting"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Chaotic boarding. Rude crew. Cramped seating in n outdated plane. Repearing things in Arabic to someone who doesn’t understand doesn’t male it easier to understand."
Pros: "Crew was nice and cordial, meal service was ok food itself was okay not bad but not superior, the aircraft was a pretty new 737-800 limited english choices of movies"
Cons: "The cabin temperature was quite warm hardly any air coming out of the air vents. I dont think they had all the air pacs on"
Pros: "Big plane, multiple boarding points. Food did its job & helped with the long flight. Movies weren't expansive, but good choices to kill the time."
Cons: "The crew did not have the key to unlock to doors leading to the plane, which forced everyone to wait 30 mins standing in line. It was quite silly! It delayed our flight about 30-45 minutes - not much, but really painful when the flight is almost 12 hours. The crew didn't tell us what was happening either, but it was pretty obvious."
Pros: "Always on- time. Always friendly and approachable staff, very clean seating. EGYPTAIR IS MY FAVORITE AIRLINE!"

Pros: "Inexpensive fair."
Cons: "Little interaction with crew"
Pros: "Crow was helpful and every think goes great"
Cons: "The flight delay and the pilot went in circle a lot of time"
Pros: "We had a 10 hour lay-over in Cairo and EgyptAIr shuttled us to an excellent hotel and provided lunch and dinner - all for free. This was most excellent and so much more pleasant than sitting at the airport!"
Cons: "If EgyptAir would distribute a little English sheet how the steps are, where to get the passports back (at the EgyptAir Counter in the main hall at the airport), which lines to go to (we didn't officially immigrate, but still had to go through immigration upon return, which wasn't clear). Maybe a word on legal boundaries of the status in Egypt - EgyptAir had the passport, can we go to the pyramids or not - would be useful, too."
Pros: "Confortable seats, good entertainment, attentive flight crew"
Cons: "Pilot didn't clearly communicate what the issues were for our delay. Safety rules and regulations were ignored by passengers and not enforced by crew (people walking aisles while plane was taxiing, passengers without seatbelts on during takeoff and landing, etc)"
Pros: "Crew were nice, food was good, overall pleasant experience"
Cons: "Boarding was slightly late and so flight was a bit late."
Cons: "My hotel was not good at my transition to other destinationsand it took 4 hours to get it"
Cons: "Sat on hot plane Cairo to Amsterdam waiting for take off"
Pros: "Crew were very caring and helpful."
Cons: "Bégaye were lost."
Pros: "It’s OK"
Cons: "Need improvements"
Pros: "Great flight....enjoyed it thoroughly....."
Pros: "Very unprofessional crew, particularly Katarina who had quite an attitude and twice left out the last four rows for drinks and coffee. Simply out of laziness."
Cons: "Online check-in had website issues and did not allow seat selection. Web check-in and on board service need significant improvements. Would not fly Etihad again; much higher standards and better service with Emirates or Qatar Air."
Pros: "The seat were comfortable."
Cons: "Crew was cold and and very matter of fact. The food was very so-so. The food items have to be purchased other the food trays served unlike Turkish Airlines and Kuwaiti Airlines."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and staff were helpful when approached."
Cons: "Crew should have been proactive in determining passengers' needs, etc. Film choices were poor-- lots of violence, few family-orientated options."
Cons: "Bathroom s were dirty"
Cons: "From chennai to Abu dhabi was very uncomfortable Abu Dhabi to London was very comfortable"
Pros: "Flight was ok"
Cons: "Food, bus journey to the plane"
Cons: "Foid is really bad. Need to work in time.1 hours and 15 min lat to fly from lax"
Pros: "Overall excellent"
Cons: "Was not able to select seats online (even 24 hours before), was not able to check-in online, had stand more than an hour in the line for check in in JFK/NY"
Cons: "We lost an item and while we are in airport waiting for next flight even though we know it would have got recovered by airport staff there is no way of getting it back unless we download a form online , print , fill the form and sign , scan and send it in email to lost and found team. This is unlikely and complex process for anyone while in airport to get access to print, scan etc. we wish this was more simpler process Cabin was too cold and staff deny bluntly to make any adjustment saying some other set of passengers complained that cabin is warm.. I have not seen anyone who could sit around with out blanket on them and we had to get double blankets and wrap ourselves in there"
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Same issues as my trip to Chicago, but this was a shorter duration so issues not as problematic"

Cons: "no jet away at deplane. Stairs are clumsy"
Pros: "It was a smooth flight."
Cons: "No entertainment but only slightly over 1:30 so it wasnt that bad. Someone stole my cell phone and Vapor between Manila and Kuwait after my hand carry bag was checked in."
Pros: "The Airbus A321 flight was much more comfortable than the 1st leg. The service again was good"
Cons: "There wasn't anything not to like."
Cons: "Abysmal experience on our return flight! # Abu Dhabi Airport is so outdated and an embarassment compared to the other Regional Airports # Boarding procedure still shambolic # A330 seems old and uncomfortable - even though it is a new plane # Cabin Crew so unfriendly and sour # Toilets again disgusting within 30 minutes after taking off # Food still shockingly disgusting # Onboard entertainment still inferior to Emirates/Qatar/etc."
Pros: "The staff is great, friendly and attentive. Lounge is comfortable, with good staff as well."
Cons: "I must admit that the food choices is not great. You are catering to international crowd not only emaratis. In general the planes are good, but the smaller older ones are not that comfortable. The older 777 configuration is very uncomfortable, comparing to the 787. When you need to slitly recline, there is no need for the whole chair to come forward in attempt to creat a bed for you. These are little things that need to be addressed when purchasing planes."
Cons: "It's a connecting flight for me and there is a long wait. so, my opinion is better to serve some snacks or food in the flight."
Pros: "Good entertainment program, seat space in Economy class is fine, amenity kit even in Economy Class"
Cons: "Only one service (dinner after aperetive) and no soft drinks, coffee/tea before landing. Cabin crew has not been seen after the service and seemed to be bored by the job."
Cons: "Great staff"
Pros: "Cleanliness of the bathroom"
Cons: "Breakfast was not good enough"
Cons: "I am very upset with Etihiad's service. On both ways, I had trouble with my luggage. On the way to Delhi all my bags were open and stuff was missing and now on the way back to U.S. all of my luggage was missing. I would not choose to fly Etihad again."
Pros: "Amazing food"
Cons: "The cabin crew never really heeds to your call sign requests. I clearly remember being in need of help but no one showed up for 45 mins starisght; I had to catch them when they were serving food."
Cons: "Again very. Very badly treated by etihad people"
Pros: "I loved the entertainments, watching different movies on the screen"
Cons: "The care by the cabin crews. They rarely responded to the calls, very arrogant, come from different background with very poor training in passenger's care."
Cons: "Cramed. Bad food. NO CONTROL ON SIZE OF LUGGAGE ALLOWED IN CABIN"
Cons: "I had one piece of checkin baggage. surprise surprise it was misplaced and finally delivered to my house, 10 hours after my arrival to the destination"
Pros: "Comfort on such a long flight was much better than other airlines. Food was great"
Pros: "The economy seats have an innovative recline which really adds to comfort, especially for such a long trans-Atlantic flight. The crew was very professional and helpful. Efficient. The entire Etihad Experience was excellent. The boarding happened on schedule, the flights as promised. No missed connections, no issues with baggage. Top Notch. Very clean aircraft."
Cons: "For whatever reason they would not let me keep my carry-ons as JetBlue did, so I had to check one of them. They have weight limits for the carry-ons, which I understand, but in my case they really were not large, and not very heavy. It is what it is."
Cons: "In the waiting area there was a smoking cabin nearby. It wasn't sealed properly and you could smell the smoke all around the gates. It causes me to cough. It would be nice if the room had 2 doors or else was located down a corridor away from the gates."
Cons: "They ran out of food (lamb and chicken) and served veg dish for both the main courses!!"
Cons: "They have restrictions more than any other flight about the size of the hand luggage- My parents were allowed to bring one hand luggage without any problems, but they were not allowed to take it back because it was "Big!" it did not put on weight or get fat! its a hand luggage that stays the same size! They blame it on the TSA and say it has to fit in and asked us to pay 325 $ to take the same bag that they brought things in."
Cons: "From the trip to india and the way back, The experience was horrible. The staff was rude and unwilling to help. Compared to other airlines very bad customer service. I will never fly Etihad again. I will actively tell people not to fly Etihad. At the Ahmedabad Airport they were unwilling to help and very rude!"
Pros: "Flight was comfortable and the A380 is super quiet. Cabin crew were helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Check in was a disaster with tickets issued in the wrong names. Also It wasn't until the night before flying we realised they'd booked our 3 month old daughter on a separate flight!"
Pros: "I didn't like baggage handling. Took too long (over 1 hour 15 mins) to get bags onto conveyor belt."
Pros: "Good value for money. Everything was fine."
Pros: "Good entertainment options although the screen/controller seem outdated and unresponsive. I would suggest not shutting off the entertainment while on the ground or too early (shut off an hour before landing)"
Cons: "My biggest complaint would be that we waited on the plane for over an hour and a half in Mumbai for late passengers. This caused a ripple effect which made us miss our arrival spot and have to wait an additional 30 min on the plane once we landed. You should never make 400+ people sit on an airplane for 2 additional hours (for a 3 hour flight) because a few passengers did not plan well and were late. That logic was insane to me and incredibly frustrating. That is my only complaint that would actually make me think twice about flying Etihad again. The crew seemed annoyed anytime I'd ask for water. A more western food option would be nice rather than just 3 options of rice and curries. Also the food timing did not line up well (eating fish at 9am)."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "They need better food"
Pros: "The staff were great. Comfortable."
Cons: "Not much."
Pros: "All ok."
Cons: "Seats seem pretty short. Only half my leg fits on them and I am not a tall person."

Cons: "Flight was delayed for an extra 2 hrs, with inadequate refreshments. Plane wasnt clean and had musty smell."
Cons: "Better variety of latest movies,"
Pros: "Same things as mentioned for the NBO-EBB leg"
Cons: "No screens on this aircraft"
Cons: "Flight was 4 hours late making for a tight connection in Nairobi and our luggage not making the connection! No matter how good your service, if you don’t get the luggage through, you fail!"
Pros: "Lazy crew dont even provide water when needed. The cabin was extremely hot and the blowers dont work."
Pros: "The gate crew was helpful"
Cons: "Earlier notification of 7 hour wait time due to delay."
Pros: "Good service with friendly crew"
Cons: "Toilets clean but a bit worn out. Windows were very dirty inside and out."
Pros: "The pilot on the airlines updated us that we were running 15 minutes late and would try to make up some time in the air. He also apologized on behalf of the crew for our delay and communicated that it was because the aircraft arrived late from the previous flight. I appreciated that clarification."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by 3:15 hours, and our gate wasn't listed on the monitors. Our gate location changed twice, and the only way I found out was by asking the "Kenya Airways Guest Services desk" twice. The overhead announcement of the gate change happened 15 minutes after the boarding time listed"
Cons: "Food - the vegetarian sandwich was cheese with a tomato and cucumber. I mean really. How about a nice tasty hummus sandwich or falafel?"
Cons: "The breakfast was a donut and roll so no protein or healthy option."
Pros: "I had an entire row to myself so this greatly improved my experience, but if this had not been the case I don't think I would have rated my flight as high."
Pros: "Kenya Airways changed their flight schedule 48 before our departure. The change meant an extra night before departure and an 11 hour layover in Nairobi before our connecting flight. The KA booking agent provided us with accommodation for the delay and the long layover. We appreciated that."
Cons: "We lost 24 hours in our travel. It was reasonable of the airline to provide accommodation during the delay but the night in Nairobi was at a very dismal hotel where the food quality was terrible."
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Kenya airways theme song"
Pros: "professional KLM flights"
Cons: "headphone audio quality not as good as had hoped"
Pros: "Clean plane, on-time departure"
Cons: "On this flight the meal trays stayed on the tables for over an hour (after the meal was served), should have been collected faster"
Pros: "The crew is always great and friendly."
Cons: "The food was really bad. It was some kind of beef but it was uneatable."
Pros: "The crew was professional and friendly."
Cons: "My flight was delayed. The gate changed at least four times with no clear announcement."
Pros: "This company obviously trains its employees to belittle and disregard customers. I have never dealt with a company so at fault for an issue and so utterly unwilling to make up for it. First, they cancel the first of our 3 flights to Delhi 18 hrs before it is to leave. The flight they replaced it with would leave us 10 min to make the connection. So we went to the counter and they told us they'd hold the plane, as did the stewardess on the flight. They lied. The plane left 10 min before we landed. We were stranded. Also, I got food poisoning from their food. They did nothing to help. They would not pay for the hotel we wanted, when we asked they rudely served everyone else they stranded first. The employee would not call his supervisor or give his name. The next morning i saw a doctor but the stomache infection was so bad i couldn't sit up or walk. The doctor wrote this on my clearance to fly document. I needed to get to India to get better medical help. We presented this to the kenya airlines agent and she would do nothing to help. She had business class reclining seats available but would not upgrade me. Even after everything this shitty airline has caused. Unbelievable. Every step along the way of this nightmare could have been made better, so much better, by some human decency but instead we got rude disregard."
Pros: "They had a good selection of movies."
Cons: "The seats were so tightly packed that it was impossible to sit straight. It was like being in some medieval torture device. I was in constant physical discomfort, verging on outright pain, for 9 hours. It was HORRIBLE. Also, the "dinner" served in-flight was unfit for a dog."
Pros: "The crew on the ground and flight crew were very friendly. The flight took less time than I had thought and this forced the cabin crew to rush with serving the snacks."
Pros: "-Professional and courteous service by crew members. -Smooth flight, thanks to captain/pilot -Aircraft comfort."
Pros: "Timeous and polite crew"
Cons: "The food was mediocre and no choice for entertainment, common movie or 2 low quality music channels"
Pros: "We were connecting on a delta flight. The agent offered to connect our bags all the way through. We checked with delta. The bags were there but if we didn't ask about them I'm not sure they would have made it."
Cons: "Staff on the airplane a bit miserable. Uncomfortable seats and no choice of food. Going downhill"
Pros: "The plane and flight crew were fine"
Cons: "Overbooked flight- cancelled many people's trips! A dozen people with printed out and confirmed flights were turned away and asked to book with other airlines. Anyone who didn't checkin online was left at the airport- even those who booked, paid in full, and confirmed in person at the Kenya Airways office the day before. And we were all at the airport hours early. The ground staff in Arusha had no idea how to check people into the flight. They lied to us about what was happening and wouldn't update us about how they overbooked. They tried to email the main office and refused to just call them on the phone. I only got on the flight because I ignored their suggestion to 'just go sit down and let them work it out'. For people who did what they were told- they all missed the flight. I did online checkin on my phone and then all of a sudden there was a seat for me on the plane and I got on. Everyone else was left at the airport with no idea what was happening. I normally love Kenya Airways, but this level of overbooking and incompetent ground staff made me change my mind."
Cons: "Kenya Airways ground staff in Nairobi was late to open the desk, creating a large line"
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: "Convenient morning flight"
Cons: "Not enough leg room for tall passengers"
Pros: "I was happy to arrive on time"
Pros: "The staff in Addis was pleasant."
Cons: "My original flight was cancelled and I was only given an hour notice before arrival time at the airport! I was rerouted from a one hour direct flight to a 7 hour delay through Nairobi then to Djibouti."
Cons: "We only had 30 minutes to catch this connecting flight due to our incredibly delayed PrecisionAir flight. We got to the service desk to get our boarding passes and there was only one person to service a multitude of people. Of course they knew that a flight was coming in, why there was only one personnel is still a mystery to me. The person who served us, Victor K., was probably the least helpful customer service personnel I've come across. He was very slow, considering that he knows there's a lot of us trying to get to our next flight. We ended up missing our connecting flight. And for some reason, the plane left earlier than the time it was supposed to leave. Another mystery to me. Shouldn't their system have told them that there were a few passengers on the previous flight that was supposed to board this connecting flight?! They did give us a free hotel for the night, or so they call a hotel. The food served was just horrendous. They just served whatever is enough to be considered "food". I will never fly with Kenya airways ever again. They are so unreliable, irresponsible, and have very little regard to customer service."
Cons: "The food was so-so. The flight was delayed. The crew was friendly, but nothing outstanding."
Cons: "They lost one piece of baggage. The check-in crew said we were required to have our vaccination cards although nobody asked for them. Then we waited an hour pulling off one piece of baggage and then they didn't load it on our flight."
Pros: "It was a great flight except for food"
Cons: "Choice of dish - fish ( was like rubber) or beef"
Pros: "Plane was a new Dreamliner and nice to fly in with excellent entertainment package."
Cons: "I had 3 hours in Johannesburg before catching a shuttle bus, so being an hour late wasn't a big problem. After rushing from Entebbe flight which was an hour late leaving and arriving, I got to the gate to be informed that this NBO to JNB flight was an hour late in departing. Pilot said it was due to "technical difficulties". My ticket had 4 legs : Nov 28 due to leave JNB at 1:20 finally left at 8:30 due to NBO runway closed from plane belly landing - the pilot was very apologetic - LATE. Dec 5 NBO to Entebbe was an hour late due to "passenger problem and luggage taken off" - LATE. Dec 10 Entebbe to NBO left an hour late due to "plane arriving late" - LATE. Dec 10 NBO to Johannesburg was an hour late due to "technical difficulties" - LATE. All 4 flights were at least an hour late leaving and arriving yet the pilots all said thanks for flying Kenya Airways - the Pride of Africa. This is what Africa should be proud of ?!? and Kenya Airways is proud of ?!? Passengers I talked to all were negative in their comments about Kenya Airways. All said there is ALWAYS something of a problem on a Kenya Airways flight. Lady on NBO to EBB flight next to me as we boarded plane and I said everything has gone smoothly so far, replied - the flight isn't over yet - and then we sat in the plane for an hour while they "removed passengers luggage". A man in NBO departure area as we waited to board JNB late flight said, the procedures and organisation are terrible with problems most of the time, which was why he was using up his reward miles because he didn't want to fly Kenya Airways again. This is the culture of this airline which is allowed to continue with seemingly no regard for the paying customers. If the powers that be such as the FAA, imposed a $100 credit to each passenger for late leaving or arriving, I would have received $400 back on a ticket that cost $750. Maybe the airlines would do something practical to remedy their problems and care for the paying customers rather than just saying "we are sorry for any inconvenience "."
Pros: "That we eventually left"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed because the airport shut down. When the airport opened again. They gave us a departure time 4 hours after our original departure time (1:20 am). 1:20 came and went without any more communication or information. 1:40 am arrived and someone from KQ showed up at our gate and said they do not have any additional information. We said there are children here and hungry, tired, frustrated people. We suggested they distribute waters or snacks, but that never happened. They just kept telling us they didnt know when the flight would take off (or if it would) nor when they would have any additional information. An hour later they made one announcement over the speaker at our gate that our flight was boarding at another gate. However, many people had fallen asleep on the floor as I had and I would have missed it if one of my fellow passengers hadnt woken me up to say that we were boarding. We then sat on the tarmac a while longer for reasons that were not explained and finally landed 7 hours later than scheduled. Very little effort was put into communicating to us, making our wait comfortable nor apologizing for the inconvenience. It was a very frustrating experience."
Pros: "Even though the flight was delayed, I still made it to the airport in a reasonable time."
Cons: "The headphone jack in my seat had a broken jack in it and I wasn't able to enjoy the in flight entertainment"
Cons: "I was stranded for 48 hours with no food, water, money or wifi and they kicked me off my fligbt"
Pros: "very efficient processes and very friendly/capable flight crew."
Cons: "the food was not great (i don't have high expectations for airplane food)"
Pros: "the flight was clean, decent food, and good service."
Cons: "The Video capabilities did not work on the flights."
Pros: "Service with smile"
Pros: "The plane was very clean. The flight attendants were outstanding. There was plenty of entertainment to keep me occupied."
Cons: "I was stuck in the middle of the middle section, so it was very difficult to get up and walk around."
