great

This flight was cancelled

Pros: "Great crew! Excellent business class suite"
Pros: "The crew was super attentive. The seats were really confortable. I loved that the seat would completely flatten to make a « bed », wonderfully for sleeping!"
Cons: "The check in and boarding in Kathmandu was really not good. I requested wheelchair assistance when I booked, and was never offered a wheelchair nor any assistance for that matter ..."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth."
Cons: "The crew were not attentive. I needed milk for my child but they never came back. Their food was HORRIBLE and only two choices and both spicy and tasted disgusting. Honestly the worst flight for me with Qatar airways"
Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Perfect"
Cons: "They do not understand the word priority at Doha airport. Business class passengers boarded last."
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "We were told to board, but then kept in another area close on 1 hour before we could get on the plane and this area had no bathroom facilities. The spread of seating on the plane made no sense with many open seats but also many squashed rows of people. The crew was visibly tired and irritated, they also ran out of a few catering items. It seemed as if last minute, a few different flights were combined into this one which lowered the quality."
Pros: "Food and leg room"
Cons: "All was fine"
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "N/a"
Cons: "The vegetarian option for breakfast was a stale waffle with apple compote. Inedible."
Pros: "Food selection. However, the snacks need to be readily available on long flights."
Cons: "Entertainment is lacking behind other international carriers"
Cons: "Nothing! Everything was great! It if was free that would be perfect!"
Cons: "I had a carry on plus a laptop bag. On the website they say you are allowed to carry a personal item such as handbag or a laptop bag along with the carry on piece. This guy at Nagpur airport says the weight of both these combined should be under 15 lbs. are you kidding me?"
Pros: "Everything!!!"
Pros: "Many movies (entertainment) I got front seat with leg space (comfort)"
Cons: "Some water dripped from the ceiling on flight 736 Doha to Montreal, seat 37a. I am usually hungry on long flights and would have liked more food."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "It seems the major airlines use older aircraft when the destination of the flight is a third world country(or Africa). The seats aren't as comfortable and the entertainment system (screens) are not as good as a Qatar and Europe bound flights."
Pros: "The flights attendants were very helpful and polite. What I enjoyed the most was the level of comfort I had. I was able to sleep for almost the entire flight. That's why it felt like it wasn't even a long flight."
Cons: "We did leave a little late but it was out of the control of the pilots and flights attendants."
Pros: "There was adequate seat room. The device was good."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."
Pros: "While my Qatar airways flight from Houston to Doha (# 714) was almost perfect, flight #1335 from Doha to Nairobi was a huge disappointment."
Cons: "The flight attendants didn't seem to know what they were doing, food ran out before i got any breakfast, the IFE system for my seat didn't work,"
Pros: "Staff was great"
Pros: "Thank you for a very good flight experience both from Philadelphia to Doha and Doha to Johannesburg."
Cons: "The breakfast options could have been better, but I was fed and happy, and the flight attendant was kind enough to bring me green tea when it wasn’t readily available on the cart."
Cons: "too hot called groups too fast for boarding"
Pros: "The long flight from Houston to Doha was good."
Cons: "The short flight from Doha to Nairobi was uncomfortably because of dry air in the plane."
Pros: "crew was lovely and plane was very new"
Cons: "food quality is not very good: sometimes it was hard to see what it actually was and it tasted like that too. headrest in the new plane is not comfortable at all as it is rigid and can only be moved up and down."
Cons: "The seat from Jakarta to Doha, especially the head/neck holder was uncomfortoble. Too big and stiff and wasn’t on the right possition even though it is adjustable. One of the crew didn’t say anything, not even smile after she opened the curtain between bussiness and economy class at row J K L. She just walked away."
Cons: "Seat to LA was broken"
Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "When the flight is changed by airline for their convenience, they would have given preferential treatment to the passengers involved. We had to bare the cost of food and make us comfortable on our own due to the delay in transit."
Pros: "Everything was fine except the flight delays"
Cons: "Flight delays"
Pros: "Quick boarding, good entertainment choices."
Cons: "Food is below average. Very salty tofu salad, and they keep giving the same food in every leg."
Pros: "The crew aboard the flight were kind and thoughtful and definitely oriented toward service."
Cons: "The security process at the gate was really disorderly. Perhaps it is because it is a new and extra step required by the US but it was definitely not efficiently handled."
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "The friendliness of the staff from check in to arrival!"
Pros: "I freceuntly fly between the US and South Africa and only fly via Qatar Airways, and every experience thus far has been great. The food is good quality, friendly crew and I would recommend it to anyone."
Cons: "The sandwiches are a little dry and movie selection a little limited."
Cons: "The passenger sitting next to me was really sick due to flu. When i explained the situation and asked for masks to the attendant, you guys did not have even one. I was disappointed with that. I think the flight should have some for these kinds of situation so that other passengers can protect themselves. Thanks."
Pros: "Unfortunately..."
Cons: "...as mentioned, I don't have the pleasure of rating this flight because of the boarding delays and missing the flight. Very disappointing."
Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"
Pros: "Service of air stewards very friendly and polite"
Cons: "This goes for Qatarfigjta from harare to Doha and Doha to Washington DC and back. I am not going to give individual report on each one. Food - my daughter could barely eat anything and the vegetarian meals were stone cold most of time. It was hard to eat at Qatar airport because not only is the food terrible (Burger King and bad Asian food) but outrageously expensive. Our media system did not work for one leg. ** way to many ads on your media system. Every time you watch a new TV episode, you have to sit through 5-6 ads for stuff that is not interesting and the same each time. ** plane info on media system keeps reverting to Arabic even when English is indicated as preferred la gauge. We had to place our iPads in checked luggage for flights from harare to USA as we went through Qatar. *** I asked for quiet seats and was given seats near kitchen and toilet even though I booked in hours in advance. One leg had my ten year old daughter and I in different rows even though I checked in 4-5 hours in advance Of flight . ** staff moved my hand luggage without my permission and without informing me - it was stressful trying to find it."
Pros: "Excellent experience overall, the food was decent, the seats were comfortable and had enough space for me at 6ft tall, the staff were very friendly and helpful, entertainment selection was good with plenty of new movies out. I had no problems with my layover. The baggage allowance was great as I had extra luggage from my trip. I'm very happy with their customer service, the day before my first flight I received a phone call from Qatar's customer service saying that due to delays I wouldn't be able to make my connecting flight to Edinburgh so they would like to book me on another flight instead of me having to wait 24 hours in Doha. I was thoroughly impressed with this service."
Cons: "I did not have wifi available from Doha-Johannesburg"
Pros: "The flight was on time. The crew was very accommodating. The food is better than some other airlines. The entertainment provided had a lot of choices I had an 8 1/2 hour layover in Doha. They booked me a short stay in a hotel at no extra charge. This included a car and driver to and from the hotel. It was a nice hotel close to the airport."
Cons: "I was sitting in economy. I booked too late to get any type of upgrade for extra legroom. For Economy it was OK, but cramped and hard to get comfortable on a 13+ hour flight."
Pros: "Great on board bar"
Pros: "Boarding priority, on-board service priority and children oriented service. Biggest leg room in any economy flight. Best entertainment program (Onyx One). Genuinely friendly crew."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "delayed flight"
Pros: "Great crews, excellent airplanes, wonderful in transit experince."
Cons: "In flight coach meals were average."
Pros: "On time departure, friendly crew. Comfortable seats for economy class, plenty of entertainment options. A pleasant experience"
Cons: "The food was okay. The hot wrap/calzone served first was not very tasteful. The breakfast/brunch was better. Not much to dislike overall."
Pros: "Again on time and effortless boarding made the overall experience a good one."
Cons: "Our suitcase was damaged...still in the process of trying to get it fixed. Hopefully it will be done soon. I will then update this report. Could maybe clean the toilets as it did become a bit messy."
Pros: "The service from the crew was amazing"
Cons: "The food was not bad compared to some air lines"

Flight attendants just not as friendly as they used to be.

The flight attendants were very helpful

No comments

Pros: "Staff was really friendly. Everything went well."
Pros: "Amazing crew"

Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "A bit bumpy"
Cons: "It was too cold on the feet during the night. The blanket was not enough. The food lacked good vegetables. The asparagus was too tough. If you wanted to avoid sugar, you could not eat breakfast."
Pros: "very helpful and pleasant crew. Warm wet towels are a nice touch. I like the water bottle for each passenger at the beginning of the trip."
Cons: "Slight problem at first with entertainement at my seat that did not work ,but a crew member restarted it and it worked fine after that."

Cons: "Boarding was a bit slow."
Pros: "direct flight from IND to CDG!"
Pros: "Quick"
Cons: "Delayed"
Pros: "The crew was awesome and helped out tremendously when anything was needed!"
Cons: "On my trip from Atlanta to Mexico City it was overbooked, they booked me on a different plane, which was 2 hrs delayed...which caused me to missed the flight from Mexico City to leon."
Pros: "The pilot was extremely informative The stewardesses were helpful It was a delayed flight and they made it relax"
Cons: "Bad weather at LGA"
Pros: "In general the crew attitude toward passengers"
Cons: "Toilets have been modified that a person could barely do his needs"
Pros: "Upgrade to ComfortPlus. Movie."
Pros: "Seat was narrow from side to side; so short from front to back that only half my thigh was supported; hard; and pitched slightly forward from uneven wear. This was an exit row, so I had legroom at least. I’m 5’4” and trim. A taller, or broader person would not fit!"
Pros: "Smooth travel and good service."
Cons: "Bad boarding area in SLC."
Pros: "Crew that's it"
Cons: "The flight was 2 hours plus late and we couldn't get an accurate update as to when to pick up our son. We got text messages that were never updates, online your information was wrong and when we called agents had the wrong flight information. Terrible experience all around."
Cons: "The leg from Atlanta to Pointe de Pitre had no wifi or even old style entertainment. Bring a book!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Before was better no now"
Pros: "Very comfortable seat and nice boarding and exit."
Cons: "Not clear at all on what was complimentary, etc. Had a very large man next to me, practically sharing my seat so getting any needed work done was out of the question unfortunately."
Cons: "Flight attendant from IND to Minneapolis must have had a rough evening or bad morning. Service in airplane is usually poor but this one was worse. Bumping most of the passenger when passing, handing drinks behind his back, not smiling."
Cons: "Aircraft seemed shabby despite refresh of Comfort Plus, food was really mediocre. Steer clear of the Asian Veg option."
Pros: "No wifi couldn’t do any work"
Cons: "Was looking forward to completing some work but the wifi never came on."
Pros: "Ind-atl flight was absolutely amazing i couldn’t find really anything wrong with the flight besides spacing for seats"
Cons: "Spacing with seats"
Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "We didn't get our seat assignment until we got to the gate. Attendant said it was because tickets bought too close to take off don't get to pick seats, but we bought our tickets about three weeks before. Also, my boyfriend and I sat in a full row while the row in front of us only had one person. It would've made more sense to put that person in one of our seats and us in that row to give four people more space instead of just one."
Cons: "They had a 40 seat plane that had about 15 people and they herded everyone in the rear of the cabin. All the extra comfort seats went empty. I asked and was told I had an economy ticket so there couldnt do anything."
Pros: "The costumer services."
Cons: "N\A"
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "It was delayed"
Pros: "Nice entertainment offerings on the Indy to MSP flight"
Cons: "None."
Cons: "My original flight from IND to LGA was cancelled due to weather and I was rebooked for the next day. I was forced to spend a night in a hotel near the airport. Then my flight the next day kept being delayed, first 5 min, then 20, then 40, etc until 2.5 hrs. Since the delays kept increasing, I decided to rebook on another flight with a very tight connection in Detroit--the only other option. When my flight arrived, the other fight was already boarding and I ran to make it. Luckily I got to the gate in time, just before the door closed. The original flight ended up with a 3.5 hr delay!!! That is unacceptable."
Pros: "Loved the onboard entertainment and the flight attendants were great."
Cons: "I travelled w/ one adult and two infants internationally and could not book the infants' tickets online had to do it over the phone. When we got to the airport we had to pay $255 for 5 bags, that's almost another ticket."
Pros: "Frontline staff were nice."
Cons: "Our flight was canceled last minute. Instead of a direct flight to start vacation, we ended up with a five hour layover in Atlanta. And to top it all off, they tried to double charge us for a checked bag fee."
Pros: "Clean, modern plane, friendly crew, great service"
Cons: "I liked it all!"
Pros: "the pretzels and drinks. The flight attendant was very polite and attentive."
Pros: "The cabin and the entertainment itself was great. Thank you for providing a nice, comfortable plane to fly on..."
Cons: "I'm leaving a poor review due to unfriendly staff... The flight attendant was rude and when asked a question responded with an unwelcoming attitude."

Flight attendants were extremely cordial and efficient. High compliments to the first cabin crew. Florida based crew and they were excellent.

If we could get the wireless working on these flights that would be awesome

Had 4 flights, all of them got delayed

Everything went very well. The crew and flight attendants were awesome. A 1hour and 20 minute flight. Enjoyed it, one step closer to home! 😃

Pros: "Gate agent was great"
Cons: "They didn’t have a pilot assigned to our flight. Had to wait 3 hours for a pilot to arrive. 😞. Thank goodness I wasn’t in a hurry to get to my destination."
Pros: "It's American you know what you get"
Cons: "No room as always but you have to wear a mask next to another mouth breather and they still keep it hot!"
Pros: "Efficient crew"
Cons: "Super crowded and hot"
Cons: "Flight attendants not enforcing mask rules. Unfortunately, many people on my flight seemed to think they're not concerned by the pandemic, and were keeping their noses out of their masks, or frequently removing their masks"
Pros: "Plane wasn’t full, they allowed everyone to spread out in the plane"
Pros: "They were fine. Seemed really short with a mom and her children but other than that, average."
Cons: "Well, my flight was delayed for an hour and a half and it seemed like the airlines mistake, not weather. It's going to make me over 2 his late to a concert, which is the main reason I came here. So hopefully they let me in, or I just spent $300 for nothing."
Pros: "The entire crew and the landing"
Pros: "I liked that the armrest came up and that the walkway was a bit wider than other airplanes."
Cons: "Larger seats"
Cons: "Paid for a seat with extra legroom, but passenger in next seat allowed small child to run back and forth in the legroom. Nothing was done when observed by crew"
Cons: "The flight attendant was outstanding. Flexible. Good sense of humor and very professional"
Pros: "The crew was very courteous and helpful, they seemed to have a positive attitude and worked with passengers like they really enjoyed their job."
Cons: "There was a 3 hour delay outbound and a 9 hour delay inbound. On the inbound flight I was put up in a nice hotel for the day and given a $30 meal voucher. However I missed my connecting flights and had to be put up when I got back to the States. Despite getting in at 10pm I was put on a 5am flight."
Cons: "Late. Again. For no good reason."
Cons: "More leg room, more attentive to customers with disabilities"
Cons: "Well the flight was delayed out of Indy and then due to some emergency at Ohare, we taxied for at least 30 minutes causing me to be late for my connecting flight and now I'm still here waiting for my new flight which is delayed."
Pros: "Nice crew! Specifically remember Monica"
Cons: "Boarding was inconvenient and the plane was half empty, leaving the majority of the passengers in the back. I’m sure it’s because of weight distribution but it’s still kind of annoying."
Cons: "The plane was not full. I sat in row 32 with two people on either side of me. In the row in front of me there were no people in it. What’s up with that? We also sat on the tarmac at the time that we were supposed to be deplaning. We were waiting on another plane to back out of the gate for 10 minutes. What’s up with that?? American Airlines, get your act together!!!!!"
Pros: "Row to myself. Big plane."
Cons: "Still need more wgroom as someone over 6 feet tall."
Pros: "Super great flight attendant in first class. Very friends and beautiful smile. Nice to see on stressful days traveling. Nice job!"
Pros: "Great service and fantastic landing!!"
Cons: "Nothing was wrong."
Pros: "Boarding was quick, flight took off and landed close to the time it was supposed to."
Cons: "Seats could be more comfortable, first check d bag could be included instead."

Pros: "It was as good as one has gotten used to"
Cons: "It was only as good as one has gotten used to"
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "The snack selection and lack of entertainment"
Pros: "I got to sneak into the economy plus seats and no one said anything."
Cons: "Flight attendants clearly did not like each other and argued constantly. Sub-par coffee (even by international standards)."
Pros: "On time, even with de-icing. Very empty flight, so lots of room to spread out."
Cons: "The older md80’s that AA is still flying are really showing their age. It will be nice when they update their fleet."
Pros: "Quick boarding and punctuality at departure"
Cons: "Plane was not confortable"
Cons: "We arrived 30 minutes early but then we waited 30 minutes for a gate."
Pros: "Quick boarding and luggage pickup."
Cons: "Mediocre staff. In my experience United is more friendly and welcoming."
Pros: "As a fat guy, I really like these newly built AA airplanes with huge seats. Two great flight attendants, too (a rare thing this day and age). Better than average coffee for an airline."
Cons: "Terrible turbulence. I know it's not AA's fault, but still, despite how nice the plane and staff were, I was sweating bullets for two hours!"
Cons: "The space between seats are too small, and the seats do not recline enough (very uncomfortable)"
Pros: "Friendly flight stewardesses!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight cancelled. Thanks, Obama."
Cons: "Flight itself was good, but will never book via JustFly again. 2/3 of my flights were cancelled and I was never notified. Then I had to call to reschedule, which took almost an hour. Then they stated they would send my confirmation via email 24-48 hours. 3 days later and the confirmation still never came. SO I had to call again and wait another half hour. No point in booking through a 3rd party for that type of hassle."
Cons: "Dirty food trays trash jammed down it and flight attendant said the she doesn't touch that cleaners doBeing"
Cons: "4 delays and two flight changes... I was late and it was crowded"
Cons: "Flight was late, no info why, when landed in DCA NO GATE AVAILABLE - and that is past 10 PM."

Pros: "Great service, good window seat, smooth flight"
Cons: "No music/radio at my seat"
Pros: "The flight attendants on both flights were very friendly"
Cons: "They changed my flight without telling me about it. My first flight was at 8 but my plane was late. When I went to the ticket counter they changed my flight and didn't tell me when I was getting to my destination"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "American has gone to these thin seats so that they can cram more cattle into the back. They are absolutely the most uncomfortable seats I've ever had the displeasure of being forced to sit in, and unless you're willing to pay even more for "premium" seats, you won't even have enough space to sit. I will never, never, ever give American Airlines another penny."
Pros: "The crew was good."
Cons: "Washington airport grounded our flight for no apparent reason while we were on the runway in Indy about to take off, then didn't tell us when we could expect the delay to end."
Pros: "The crew on board the air craft was great"
Cons: "The Indianapolis to JFK trip was the first of three legs. My bags were only checked to JFK. I have a badly broken ankle and needed a wheel chair. I could not manage my luggage and crutches. It forced me to take a taxi to the international terminal, then ask strangers for help with my luggage once I got there. I am extraordinarily displeased!!!! I will not fly American again."
Pros: "Easy boarding, im about 6'3 so i was a bit uncomfortable being in the middle seat (not airlines fault) overall good first experience."
Cons: "Would have liked to be able to sit by my spouse being my first time on an airplane. Wasnt an option?"
Pros: "As always, the staff was courteous and efficient. I never have any problems when I fly American Airlines. I often book my flights specifically for American Airlines when I can."
Pros: "Made it to LGA"
Cons: "Didn't make it home"

You should start serving the food because people are paying lots of money and the tickets are very expensive !

Delay. Long wait in line. Poor communications.

Cons: "Exiting passengers from the rear exposed the entire flight as people had to walk past those seated from the back to front. Great social distancing and we'll done British Airways"
Pros: "No and no."
Cons: "Very crowded in.club class. Way lower standard for business class as compared to the other airlines."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and everything was perfectly on time!"
Cons: "4 hs delay"
Pros: "The flight was on time and landed early"
Cons: "The bags could have come out earlier and the food could be better"
Cons: "I made a mistake in my daughter's surname while booking online, BA refused ro change it at check-in and forced me to buy a new ticket for her."
Pros: "Leg room fantastic"
Pros: "The crew were very attentive and there was a large variety of in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "I am not a heavy set guy but the seats were unreasonably close to each other, this meant that when you eat a meal your elbows push into your sides making it hard to bring food to your mouth."
Cons: "Direct flights to and from South Africa to USA not via Middle East"
Cons: "Very narrow seats"
Pros: "The crew, the food and the smooth journey."
Cons: "Seating is a big problem. I am only 192 cm tall and cannot really fit my legs into the space. Have them out in the corridor"
Pros: "That the flight was on time."
Cons: "not applicable."
Cons: "Seat was broken. Reclines without requesting. Tray also needs attention. Seat 15C"
Pros: "Quick boarding."
Cons: "Nothing. Pretty good for a short trip."
Cons: "Better business class seats"
Cons: "Delayed, twice!"
Pros: "New Years flight... very special. Great staff and grear entertainment on board"
Cons: "The flight data was not showing... could have been interesting especially on a New Years flight"
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."
Cons: "Don’t like the business class seating configuration. The entertainment system played up and only worked in half the cabin. They tried to fix it without success"
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: "BA in South Africa run a clean efficient airline. Planes are new crew well trained and food is good."
Cons: "Preseating totally random no matter your status. Booked state of my choice well in advance and was presented at the back of the plane on check-in"
Pros: "No entertainment on the flight"
Pros: "I liked that we landed 30 minutes in advance for both flights to and back, compared to the other parallel flight via SAA which was delayed 2 hours when we arrived back."
Cons: "I didn't like the cheese roll I asked for as the whole roll and cheese was literally stuck to the bottom and parts of the bottom of the roll were mushy. The staff were professional but lacked personality and seemed a little hollow."
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: "Food was tasty"
Cons: "Was delayed"
Pros: "Quick and efficient boarding."
Cons: "The way that the crew (both in economy on right of plane) spoke to, and handled sensitive situations with several of the passengers in a loud and rather rude manner. This is not the British way that I have been accustomed to on previous BA flights, and is rather upsetting. The crew were very abrupt in general, and did not have that seasoned and polite demeanor which I expect from BA."
Pros: "BA moved me on to the Kulula flight without any fuss and gave me a meal voucher."
Cons: "I got to the airport to find that my 19:15 flight had been delayed to 22:15. I hadn't received any notification from BA and still do not know the reason for the delay. The only other option available was for BA to put us on the 20:20 Kulula flight to Lanseria and then shuttle us from Lanseria to OR Tambo. It really is not pleasant to get back home so late on a week night and not even be given any warning or any reason for the huge delay."
Pros: "Crew were excellent. Very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Boxes under the seat in front took up legroom (but it did ensure good entertainment options). Could have offered some more drinks."
Pros: "The staff was great, friendly, helpful and professional."
Cons: "I thought the food lacked imagination, was skimpy and too hot. I burned my mouth several times. I really do not like having to pay for a booked seat. I have special needs at my age and so booking early is how I typically make sure I can access the bathrooms easily without climbing over sleeping passengers. I picked flight for the price, but in the end I should have stuck with Delta, KLM and Air France and got the extra miles as with seat bookings and only one bag allowance, what I ended up paying did not make it worth it. Oh well, live and learn. Seats were tight, anyone bigger than me would have really struggled."
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"
Cons: "Connecting flight experience - Had to wait in a line for around 5 hours just to speak with a customer service representative at the London airport because my previous flight was delayed and I had missed my connecting flight."
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 have physical limitations and required assistance stowing overhead luggage and help getting out of seat. Crew were terrific. Wheelchair assistance also great. Travels on my own."
Cons: "Crowded and uncomfortable"
Pros: "Made up for time due to a big tail wind"
Cons: "Took off late and had to wait 45 minutes for luggage"
Pros: "Flight was on time,actually ahead of time."
Cons: "Aircon was not efficient. Very hot in the plane."
Pros: "The space on the A380 is nice, comfortable seats, and the crew was very considerate"
Cons: "No between meals drinks (like water, etc.) or snacks left out on this 11 hour flight. The seats are still a bit close together... for the comfort of a long legged man behind me, I was not really able to recline my chair at all."
Pros: "The plane was comfortable and clean, and there was enough legroom for me even in economy. The flight attendants were friendly and meal services were well timed. For a 10+ hour flight, this was about as comfortable as it could be."
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: "Strong tailwind brought us in 30mins ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Nothing. Was a smooth and friendly flight. Cabin crew were courteous and efficient."
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: "The cabin crew, as always, were unfailingly helpful and polite. We paid extra for exit row seats, which were wonderful for my 6'6" husband's long legs."
Cons: "The food wasn't really edible, but the flight was only 5 hours long, so it wasn't a great issue."
Pros: "Great food. Ground staff were very accommodating."
Cons: "Flight crew attitude. Cramped seating."
Pros: "Everything was good after we finally left."
Cons: "Due to mechanical issues, flight was canceled. Missed a day of our honeymoon as a result. Compensation offered as a result was unsatisfactory."
Pros: "Arriving on Time"
Cons: "Seating"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!!!"
Cons: "Keep to time and stop the delays."
Pros: "Everything was Amazing. This is one of the best Airline out there and they need more recognition."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Every thing was fine"
Cons: "More legroom, seats with more cushion and recline, better food!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 2 hours. I missed my connection flight to Lilongwe and had to spend a night in nairobi. What n incovinienve!"
Pros: "Service and flight itself"
Cons: "Changing the system to be repaired whenever someone needs to change the phone let be available especially to those who are traveling to other countries and they're new there and they need to do a calling for connection to people who are going to take them to different destinations."
Pros: "Yes the crew was amazing"
Cons: "Provide food for kids first before even the special meals people"
Pros: "Easy going flight with friendly and hospitable crew"
Cons: "Plane was quite dirty inside and out"
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: "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: "Same comment as the Ebb to nbo flight ."
Cons: "Same comment as the Ebb to nbo flight ."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic. The food was good as well."
Cons: "The delay was painful."
Pros: "Better food with Kenyan flavor"
Cons: "No Kenyan food"
Pros: "Very quick, smooth flight"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "I like that the trip had no stops and the food was ok."
Cons: "The check-in counter did not have a credit card machine for me to pay my extra bag fee. This made things very inconvenient for me because I didn't have cash. I had to leave the airport to find a place with wifi because I didn't have service and the airport doesn't have WiFi. I had to contact a family back home in the US to wire me money. The money never came thru and I had to make a cash advance with my credit card which resulted in me having to pay fees. The entire process almost caused me to miss my flight and the lady at the check-in counter tried to keep my change. After wasting all the time getting the money to pay for the extra bag fee the staff were rushing me to get to the plane and threatening me I would be left behind even though it's not my fault I'm running late. I was not happy with my experience."
Cons: "flight was cancelled"
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: "Comfortable seating"
Cons: "Food was bad"
Pros: "Same as above"
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: "No complains means i LOVED everything. From start to finish."
Cons: "No complains on this flight."
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."
Cons: "The flight to Nairobi was so late that I missed my connection and have to wait about 10 hours for the next flight out."
Pros: "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: "Timing & touch downs. Good flying."
Cons: "Food & drink. Little choice, poor taste."
Cons: "Seats were not very confortable"
Pros: "I got moved to a different airline and was not notified so when I got there over 2 hours early for KENYA FLIGHT I was hustled and bustled and BUSSED TO A DIFERENT TERMINAL at Dubai airport, then chastise, harangued and insulted by new airline staff for being "Late" and they couldn't guarantee I would make the flight. I it on board and someone else was in my seat. HE. Got bumped to first class..."
Cons: "See above...the whole experince"
Cons: "Staff on the airplane a bit miserable. Uncomfortable seats and no choice of food. Going downhill"
Pros: "The baggage handler for Kenya Airways, Derrick, in Johannesbury was very helpful checking on my delayed luggage. The flights and flight attendants were very good."
Cons: "Late departures, unscheduled stop for crew, and baggage not making new flights made me miss two transfer flights. Closed sales kiosk in Johannesburg unable to get an hotel and meal vouchers. Sales lady was rude the next day. Arrived Cape Town over 24 hours late."
Cons: "Kenya Airways ground staff in Nairobi was late to open the desk, creating a large line"
Pros: "Pleasant crew."
Cons: "Price, hard seats, food"
Pros: "Convenient morning flight"
Cons: "Not enough leg room for tall passengers"
Pros: "Pilot updating passengers on the geographical features along the route and keeping them informed at all times together with client oriented crew."
Cons: "food"
Pros: "I was happy to arrive on time"
Cons: "Lack of drink options, no diet cola?! Poor entertainment options"
Pros: "The flight worked."
Cons: "Looking for my bags for a week."
Pros: "Food and service"
Cons: "Time to update, renovate and scale up the fleet flying Africa. Impossible to sleep in economy."
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."
Cons: "it was okay"
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: "KQ is one of the few I like among African airliners for its streamlined system and staff's friendliness. This time i took note of a young male CA called Tonny who was very smiley all along, demonstrated care towards all passengers, and seemed to enjoy his work genuinely - which is sadly hard to experience with other global airliners. The staff are well-trained, unlike ET, interacting with passengers on an Raul footing, and it was a pleasant journey this time as well."
Cons: "I am not quite sure if the staff checking passengers in for the flight in EBB were KQ employees, but with that reservation, I was quite disappointed to learn hat KQ does not provide accommodation for 11-hour transit in Nairobi and make its clients stay inside the airport. I almost assumed that the overnight accommodation is given for such a long layover, but nooo! Even when I asked the checkin lady at the alone counter desk at EBB return modestly, "Do you by any chance provide a hotel room for me for the long transit?" She had the guts to say a straight no without a smile or looking into my eyes. I eventually booked a hotel room on my own which cost me nearly $100. I thought that was ridiculous service modality for a major African airliner."
Pros: "Nothing ticket was too expensive"
Cons: "Food is awful"
