Cons: "I was in the row next to the toilets which meant a constant stream of people using the toilet and queuing outside of it that makes sleeping impossible. The noise of the toilet flushing every two minutes is disturbing and the smell from the toilet really is rather unpleasant. Having paid for economy plus I expect a reasonable comfortable seat. Which is the point of paying the premium, otherwise I’d have just bought an economy seat. It’s poor design that creates an unpleasant experience for your customers."

Cons: "Baggage control very bad. Waited an hour for the carousel to deliver the bag"

Cons: "Baggage control very bad. Waited an hour for the carousel to deliver the bag"

Cons: "Proper communication and oversight of the boarding process. Tell us to stand in 2 queues a third one develops and we need to sort out unhappiness. Almost like the taxis! And as usual departed late"

Pros: "Crew helpful. Reasonable amount of leg room"
Cons: "Good value for money"

Pros: "Easy to check in - yummy sandwich and friendly crew"
Cons: "Comfort - paid food by card only available"

Cons: "When buying my ticket departure time was 19h25. When getting to the airport departure time on display was 19h35. No indication of delay. So why the difference in times?"

Pros: "Excellent assistance"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "No window at seat row 11, no warning about this at check-in"

Cons: "My ticket was cancelled because Kiwi did not pay the airline. It cost me tons of extra money, and seriously delayed my trip!"

Pros: "Crew was terrible. Only 2 beverage services in 10 hour flight, and 2 in 8 hr flight. Crew did not respond to call button. Seats smaller than previous flights."
Cons: "Iberia messed up my flight from Windhoek to Johannesburg so I could not check in ahead of time or at airport. Stood at British Airways/Iberia desk for 2 hrs until my gate was closing. So I was told only way to get on plane was to purchase another ticket, and then contact Iberia for a refund."

Pros: "The airport staff went to great length to try and assist me but couldn't due to things not in their control."
Cons: "Checking in was a huge hassle as they checked by bags in all the way to Dublin but could only give me a boarding pass for one flight."

Pros: "Comfortable plane, excellent feedback from pilots regarding route, changes in altitude etc We had to drop a couple of 1000m to avoid bad turbulence. We were kept in the loop reg what was going on"
Cons: "Budget travel - so no food, entertainment or the like"

Pros: "Hospitality"
Cons: "All is awesome"

Pros: "Cost and quickness."

Pros: "Relatively quick boarding procedures"

Pros: "Lots of leg room"
Cons: "No complementary food"

Pros: "Color green is nice."
Cons: "Flight delayed multiple times. Nothing complemtry even with long delays. Forced to pay for water. Online extra bag purchase was not working. After calling in, their system was also down. Forced me to pay extra price at the airport."

Pros: "Boarded on time and for a very full flight without a hitch"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Crew was very nice. Boarding/unloading was efficient with both front and rear doors being used, though had to use stairs."
Cons: "I couldn't get miles on my American Airlines program, even though they're a partner airline."

Pros: "Caring and courteous crew."
Cons: "Crampped more than 90mins late -- made me miss the last train and cost me a large taxi fare to get home! Terribly disappointing experience. The morning flight to East London was also over an hour late because (according to the Captain) the aircraft was late in coming out of its weekly service! Hope never having to resort to Kulula ever again!"

Pros: "Once the boarding started, it was efficient, and the crew were friendly."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Short and sweet"
Cons: "Too short of a flight."

Pros: "With a little tail wind, this flight can be as short as 1.5 hours! Crew was positive and quick with great service. Baggage collected within 20 minutes of landing."

Pros: "On time. At long last"

Pros: "Flight itself was not bad"
Cons: "The lead up was poor. Lies were told about delays. Should have departed at 14h35 and eventually only left at 17h24. Due to technical issues and not systems as originally stated. Really!"

Cons: "Zero,"

Cons: "Shuttle to plane stood stationary for 15mins."

Cons: "I checked in for a flight and chose my seat, which was no issue until i got to the gate. I was summarily moved 11 rows back without any explanation. normally not an issue, but when i had 1c and wanted needed to get out quickly, you can see the issue. neither the ground staff nor crew were interested in the issues and gave no reason for the move"

Cons: "Very sticky, hot inside. Why are SAA passengers flying on Kulula? Baggage collection at carousel was for a SAA flight and a Kulula flight."

Cons: "we did not take this flight due to massive wildfires in Port Elizabeth and the surrounding areas (with 5+ people dead)"

Cons: "Because we missed the flight from Johannesburg to port Elizabeth BA cancelled our flight to Durban and we did not find out until we arrived at the airport. We had to book new tickets at the going rate to get on the same flight. BA also told us our other 3 flights had also been canceled. Fortunately Emirates was able to fix those 3 later"
