Cons: "Delay again... seems to be pretty frequent on KLM flights at least on the ones I flew with in the past 4 years... this time it was 3hours wait due to a technical issue... no alternative flight option and we ended up getting a very old plane as a replacement. In addition people at info terminals are disorganized and not kind at all.."
Cons: "I slept didn't have snack offered and no entertainment"
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."

Baggage has not reached final destination to Ahmedabad because of over weight of the airplane.. still not received any update from the Air Arabia.. after 24 hours . Pathetic airlines.. not able to get answers from staff.. still 48 hours.. which is for international passenger not easy.. further travels are affected due to this. Please let me know how to get reimbursed for all the expenses which i did because my baggages didnt reached.

Check in process takes to long

Cons: "Unusually the crew were quite stand off. Normally cheerful and accommodating this crew gave you the feeling you were in the way and tiresome"
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Pros: "Flight attendants are nice enough."
Cons: "1. On FCO-AUH route, my son’s entertainment system did not work. We informed the flight attendant and she said it has to be reset but did not come back to do something about it. 2. On AUH-MLA route, my entertainment system is so unresponsive. The touch screen does not work, so I had to use the manual controls. 3. Repetitive advertisements 4. Movies are old, not updated. 5. Food is not so satisfactory."
Pros: "SERVICE WAS PERFECT"
Cons: "FOOD WASN'T GOOD"
Pros: "Customer service at the desk was terrible. Also, proceeded to tell me my checked bag would be over $400!!!! Needless to say, I walked to emirates and booked with them. Sad."
Cons: "Everything."
Pros: "Did not submit my meal choice in time but got the meal of my choice anyway."
Cons: "They don’t treat the passengers with respect. They treat us as if they are doing us a favor by flying us to our destination."
Pros: "I couldn't catch this flight because the previous connecting flight was canceled."

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: "Seating was comfortable. Plane arrived on schedule."
Pros: "NOTHING!"
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: "timeliness, in-flight entertainment, food"
Cons: "The staff at the Abu Dhabi airport."
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: "Aircraft"
Cons: "Ground staff is so inefficient and checkin process at JFK and boarding at AUH is abysmal. Ground staff at JFK have no regard for time and on time departure. Seriously lacking in entertainment options inflight and food is mediocre. Etihad is seriously lagging other competitors from same region like Enirates. This would effect my choice airline for my future travels."
Pros: "Everything from chek in in LA to the Arrival in Abothbi"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Good food and vegetarian options"
Cons: "Not very good movie options"
Cons: "Again very. Very badly treated by etihad people"
Pros: "The movie options and food were good."
Cons: "This flight had the potential to be good as the entertainment and food options were good, but I felt cramped and the volume of the surrounding passengers was awful. There were three crying babies, which I know neither the airline nor the families themselves can control, as well as one child with special needs who was making a lot of noise the whole flight. I wasn't able to sleep at all for that reason. Additionally, I was disappointed that the flight was late and that the deplaning process was so long – we taxied for a long time and there was only one staircase, so we were very late."
Pros: "Etihad is my first choice for this run."
Pros: "Comfort on such a long flight was much better than other airlines. Food was great"
Pros: "The crew, the cleanliness, the food (lots of food and drink. It was nice to have the option to snack or not especially while traveling with a small child.)"
Cons: "My son's tv monitor didn't work"
Cons: "Food is getting boring. Chicken fish or beef every time. Plane was old. Entertainment choice not good. Crew forgot to bring wine for the main course. It's about 50% of the standard of the A380."
Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "Flight got delayed without notice"
Pros: "Good nice flight feel like you sitting in bussiness class"
Pros: "Great staff, very responsive. I was upgraded - i feel that Etihad Gold members are really respected making it well worthwhile showing loyalty to the airline"
Pros: "Ahmedabad to Abu Dhabi veg food is out. Over all good service. I always Flying with etihad airways"

Cons: "Seats seem pretty short. Only half my leg fits on them and I am not a tall person."
Cons: "The food"

Pros: "I really loved the blanket,socks and all the other accesories they provided on board!"
Pros: "Punctual"
Cons: "Nothing not to like."
Cons: "Overbooking Confirmed flight and seats gets cancelled when you half way of your journey and left with no choice. Airports and call center staff is rude, no response when my luggage was missing I will never fly with etihad again."
Pros: "I did receive my bag, even I reserve business class."
Cons: "I did receive my bag, even I reserve business class."
Cons: "i did not get my luggage yet"
Cons: "The flight from Riyadh ALWAYS leaves late. Arabs have so sense of punctuality."
Cons: "The remote control for the in-flight entertainment system did not work."
Pros: "everything"
Pros: "Every thing was good except one thing my wife could not walk and she need weel chair we ask for it but or seets where put in middle and not in special need as it's a bit long flight hir leg became realy bad condition because the space in seets where quiet less by the time we land at airpot situation became very bad so pleas take care of ppl who realy cannot walk now we are in hospital for for more support."
Cons: "Every thing was good except one thing my wife could not walk and she need weel chair we ask for it but or seets where put in middle and not in special need as it's a bit long flight hir leg became realy bad condition because the space in seets where quiet less by the time we land at airpot situation became very bad so pleas take care of ppl who realy cannot walk now we are in hospital for for more support."

Cons: "Direct flights to and from South Africa to USA not via Middle East"
Cons: "Better drink selection"
Pros: "The crew, the food and the smooth journey."

Pros: "Friendly, helpful and professional crew."
Cons: "Better business class seats"
Cons: "Delayed, twice!"
Pros: "This was a charter by BA. Airbus A320 with amazing legroom. Was slightly annoyed by them not having coffee ( to wake me up for the drive home) but I suppose I get why they weren’t serving hot beverages."
Cons: "The beverages thing above."
Pros: "Excellence view of London performered by the pilot. Very please with that."
Cons: "All good except for the seat, let my neck with a bit of pain."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Crew very friendly"
Cons: "No free coffee."
Pros: "The A380 is roomy with large overhead bins. Its quiet and smooth. Flight was on time!!"
Cons: "It was impossible to select a seat in advance. I could not even get to seat selection at online checkin. It was very frustrating. When I went to BA in London and Los Angeles they said it was responsibility of AA and when I went to AA in London & Los Angeles they referred me back to BA. Why can I not choose seats like on other airlines????"
Pros: "Check in and crew were very nice"
Cons: "Baggage was slow But everything was fine Pilot kept us informed"
Cons: "I'm not sure why the lady at the check-in desk was sooo rude and unwilling to help. Customers' presence was really bothering her..."
Pros: "I liked the seats that I got. Staff were friendly and it was a comfortable flight overall."
Cons: "There wasn't enough drinks (water etc) coming around after meals."
Pros: "I like flights that land on purpose in a couple.troled way. This one did that. Good enough for me."
Cons: "Having to fly, but sometimes if happens."
Cons: "Had to take an emergency trip to London. The cost of the ticket for an hour flight was outrageous. $900 US was highway robbery."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew"
Cons: "My wife and I having to sit in separate seats when there were seats available next to each other. Being charged excess baggage when one suitcase was weigh under weight"
Pros: "All the normal stuff of flying domestic."
Cons: "The way that my brand new suitcase was damaged on the flight and BA just said that handles are excluded from bag damage. Thus, they can do what ever they want with your bag's handles, manhandle it and not take any responsibility. My suitcase was clearly damaged by the way it was handled since i booked it in till i received it again and they just said sorry...there is nothing we can do for you!!! Now that is is poor customer service."
Pros: "I got there. It was safe."
Cons: "Entertainment system shut off."
Pros: "everyone was very nice-thank you"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "I have to pay for water?????"
Pros: "Flight was on time,actually ahead of time."
Cons: "Aircon was not efficient. Very hot in the plane."
Cons: "After sitting on the tarmac (I understand the delay) for 2 hours there was no water available for another hour past takeoff. And then it was only available for purchase. Really, a cup of free water is asking too much?"
Pros: "Boarding seemed simple, no zones were called except for priority, we just all boarded and it seemed to go quickly and smoothly. BA is all pay onboard for any food or drinks."
Pros: "Aside from the typically narrow seats, the service included all the hallmarks of higher-tier service, such as hot towels, cloth napkins, a good meal, and so on. The crew was attentive, as well."
Pros: "Timely."
Cons: "The airplane was really old. The screens wouldn't start for a really long time. Very, very few options for movies and the screen and sound had terrible quality. Food was not really good."
Pros: "Staff was extremely friendly"
Cons: "Seats were too close and comfort was hard for the long flights. I wish premium economy was better explained to one world partners prior to booking so there would be access to better seats."
Cons: "$100 just to choose a seat ? $100 for a 2nd bag? A Kellogg's bar for breakfast? Shame on them."
Pros: "Left on Time"
Cons: "Food costs money and not even water is free."
Pros: "Strong tailwind brought us in 30mins ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Nothing. Was a smooth and friendly flight. Cabin crew were courteous and efficient."
Pros: "Nice plane, and quick flight to Heathrow from Glasgow. The plane had to leave late due to weather but the pilot kept passengers informed and made up time in the air so we were only 15 minutes late. The crew was available to discuss implications for connections."
Cons: "No entertainment options but this was a small plane and quick flight, so I didn't expect anything."
Pros: "Blanket and quiet to sleep"
Cons: "my screen didn't work"
Cons: "Took forever to serve cold drinks and food. Said we were going to have a short flight due to tail wind so they would not serve hot drinks. Mean while we landed at the expected time of arrival."
Pros: "Great food. Ground staff were very accommodating."
Cons: "Flight crew attitude. Cramped seating."
Cons: "There was a massive delay and I stood in line 6 hours to rebook. Because of the long rebooking line, I missed multiple other potential alternative flights that day and had to spend an unscheduled night in the suburbs of Glasgow. Had rebooking been more efficient, I could have returned home the day scheduled. Very disappointed."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, food was good, tv entertainment has a lot more choices now, decent leg room, smooth landing and take off,"
Cons: "Flight being late 2 hours and we had to sit in the plane for that amount of time, they didn't their refreshment service early"
Pros: "Happy stewards"
Cons: "Everyone was terrible"
Cons: "Kayak/priceline re-booked my flight for my sister and I from SAA to BA, but failed to completely reissue us tickets. When we checked in for the flight, we had no ticket for the first leg of the flight, but we had tickets for the remaining flights. We immediately called to fix this problem, but due to slow customer service, we weren't issued tickets in time and the flight left without us. We missed all remaining connecting flights and were forced to buy New tickets. Now we have to work with kayak/priceline to get all my money back due to their error. We came back a day later than expected and missed going back to work."
Pros: "Gold muffin."
Cons: "Lots of turbulence so only business class got drinks does not make sense how is it that turbulence only stops economic people from getting drinks."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient and the crew was friendly and very helpful. The one flight was on time, but the other can be excused because of a technical fault on the plain. Safety is priority #1 so although a 3 hour delay was not nice, i'd rather be safe than sorry!"
Cons: "The food was absolutely appalling on both flights... We received a cheese snack. It was an old sesame seed bun ,with a very thin, small slice of cheese which you could hardly taste on it. With that they placed cucumber, that does not add to the taste of the dish, but only makes the bread soggy. There is also a piece of lettuce on that is past its crunchy freshness it is supposed to have. The last ingredient is sun-dried tomato that was the only ray of light for a poor effort of a snack by BA. I can truly say that during the past year BA's in flight food service on local flights, are on a downward spiral and almost in the dumps."
Pros: "Left/arrived on time"
Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "We booked on Kayak for a British Airways flight international--but it was a bait and switch. We ended up flying on American Airlines--the WORST! And our whole reason for booking British Airways was to avoid any US airline... We paid a premium, plus Kayak then sends you to a third party processor that charges you another $100 booking fee! American Airlines was terrible! Not even an entertainment center on an international flight (OLD PLANE THAT SHOULD BE TAKEN OUT OF SERVICE!). We will NEVER use KAYAK again."

My flight was fine. The stewardess were wonderful. My bag is lost. I am in Madagascar. Please help. Can you help with refund I paid $110. I'm waiting for my sports equipment. Thanks

Pros: "EVERYTHING WAS JUST PERFECT!!! KUDOS TO KQ!"
Cons: "NO COMPLAINS"
Pros: "The warm towel given for the hands and face at the beiginning was a nice surprise treat. Great also that blankets and headphones were provided."
Cons: "More food variety as some items ran out as they got to the back of the plane"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for an extra 2 hrs, with inadequate refreshments. Plane wasnt clean and had musty smell."
Cons: "Seating"
Pros: "The stuff was great but flight and the its self is no good with the timing , the keep chaining flight times the cancel my flight twice"
Pros: "Just okay"
Cons: "Flight delays"
Pros: "The gate crew was helpful"
Cons: "Earlier notification of 7 hour wait time due to delay."
Pros: "The crew was great, and greeted passengers with a smile."
Pros: "The crew is helpful."
Cons: "The boarding system needs to be improved and be conducted in an orderly manner. Leaving on time seems to be impossible. Keeping time should be looked into."
Pros: "Lie Flat beds in Business Class."
Cons: "Meal service was very slow, and food was uninspiring. Essentially economy meals placed on proper plates."
Cons: "Too many onboard announcements"
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: "Service and flight tines"
Cons: "Asked for a non middle seat and got stuck both legs"
Cons: "Nothing"
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: "Te time of te flight"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Timeliness of flights"
Pros: "Staff very friendly"
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 flight services were good but with two major horrible issues:"
Cons: "1. It took almost one week after my arrival to trace my checked-in baggage. Horrible indeed. Moreover, the baggage contained my medications and other valuables which I needed on ongoing basis! Very disappointing! 2. Despite being charged for the full fare as indicated online, Kenya Airways charged my debit card an additional fee of $31.19. I thought the amount that I had paid to KAYAK was final? I will NEVER dare use such a travel agent engine again in future!"
Pros: "The plane was pretty comfortable, they gave us blankets and pillows even though it was only a 4-hour flight."
Cons: "They served "breakfast" halfway through which was two tiny servings of meat and a piece of chocolate cake. Not much food and not really what I wanted to eat in the middle of the night! Boarding was completely chaotic, some screens said the flight was delayed, others said it was on time (it was delayed). When we arrived in Nairobi they hardly apologized for the delay, and also insisted on sending a bus to come pick us up from the plane because it was raining, which took forever. Missed my connection by about 5 minutes and had to wait almost 10 hours for the next one."
Pros: "Timeous and polite crew"
Cons: "The food was mediocre and no choice for entertainment, common movie or 2 low quality music channels"
Pros: "PUNCTUALITY"
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 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: "Convenient morning flight"
Cons: "Not enough leg room for tall passengers"
Pros: "Overall it was fine. However there were some downsides..."
Cons: "One of our bags didn't make it. Also, the plane left late for some reason. We weren't sure why they didn't start letting us board sooner. Finally, the airport in Nairobi is dangerous when early morning planes arrive. Arriving passengers who are in transit are ushered down an escalator where they are pushed into one another because of a security line backup...yet the escalator just keeps bringing more people. This happened to us in Nairobi in the early morning of July 26 and again in the early morning of August 2. I feared someone would be trampled or hurt."
Pros: "Client oriented crew"
Cons: "Delay in departure time"
Cons: "Flight was delayed."
Pros: "I loved the short flight will book again!"
Cons: "Everything was great!"
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"
Pros: "Departed on time and arrived on time . Staff very courteous"
Pros: "Food and service"
Cons: "Time to update, renovate and scale up the fleet flying Africa. Impossible to sleep in economy."
Pros: "5 star service"
Pros: "The flight was delayed in leaving but the Captain didn't say anything until we were about to land. The overnight flight was pleasant but the food was pretty mediocre."
Cons: "Crew were pretty good and the Dreamliner is an excellent aircraft, particularly in business class."
Cons: "The food was so-so. The flight was delayed. The crew was friendly, but nothing outstanding."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. Food was so-so. No entertainment."
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: "tickets were cheap"
Cons: "Flight was late leaving Dubai therefore causing me and several other people to miss our connecting flight."
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 "."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled after waiting from midnight until 6:00 am in the Airport. Could have gone to a hotel... lost 2 days"
Pros: "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."
Cons: "Messy boarding Late departure"
Pros: "Nothing ticket was too expensive"
Cons: "Food is awful"
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: "very efficient processes and very friendly/capable flight crew."
Cons: "the food was not great (i don't have high expectations for airplane food)"
