Airline reviews

Pros: "I would have appreciated that with ALL required paperwork, my stay at check in point would have lasted a little less than two hours I spent standing and waiting for a feedback."
Cons: "Updating clients and offering a seat if it’s a long wait could have improved the situation. It is on reception that the business gets its impression. Thanks."

Pros: "Everything great!"
Cons: "~"

Pros: "Crew was great. They made up for mistakes in a positive and amenable way."
Cons: "Flight was late. There was no communication about it. The flight from Joburg to Doha was late, therefore I missed my connection. The delay was not officially communicated to any of the passengers — no announcements made, no representatives to talk to at the gate — until well past the time that we should have been in the air. It was distressing."

Pros: "The crew was very attentive and professional"
Cons: "Food wasn't great"

Pros: "Crew is amazing"
Cons: "The Entertainment screen wasn’t working"

Pros: "Great crew and food. Nice economy class."

Pros: "Nice crew, 1 hr free WiFi"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "I found my seat a bit uncomfortable for this leg of the jurney"

Pros: "The service of the cabin was great!"
Cons: "The food was not of the quality I would have expected from the expectation created by the airlines marketing. We boarded close to a full hour later than scheduled and the boarding process was very slow."

Pros: "Service is courteous, both on the ground and air. Food & entertainment was top-notch as well. One of the economy rest-rooms were out of order and I was allowed to utilize the business class restroom by the flight attendant. Head bursar was very apologetic and sympathetic about the whole issue. Enjoyed my flight, again on Qatar!"

Cons: "Did not make this flight."

Pros: "Crew and their promptness to assist"
Cons: "Vegetarian food - portion is too little. This has been the third time with Qatar and the food portion are too little."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Too crowded in in flight"

Pros: "From the exceptional lounges to the cleanliness of the plane, the food options in business class and the flight attendants , Qatar Airways was excellent"
Cons: "The only issue was the movie options for the Hollywood options. There should have been more newer releases for such a long flight."

Pros: "decent leg room. the staff was accommodating"
Cons: "the brea was har. some of the food was overheated thus making it hard to eat"

Pros: "Fantastic service, very friendly staff who are always happy to help"
Cons: "Should have internet free of charge in flight"

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: "The change of my flight schedule for the entire journey was done without giving me any options (departure flights from origin and return). It would have caused me inconvenience if the change of time does not allow me to adjust my plans."

Pros: "Great flight. Everything was good. The only very small issue is hey offer WiFi but even if you pay the allocation of data make you feel like you living in the 1990. 10 meg free and 300 meg for a whole flight is a complete joke, especially for USD 30. They could manage protocols but give a reasonable service."
Cons: "WiFi"

Pros: "Qatar is a reliable airline."
Cons: "No matter how many times I have traveled with Qatar (5 international flights in the last year); I still do not receive any benefits such a priority boarding or upgrades."

Pros: "The service from check-in till landing was on the ball and superb. They were friendly and eager to assist with everything. They have the latest movies and shows to watch on their in-flight entertainment."

Pros: "great crew and food."
Cons: "being charged excess baggage when one suitcase weigh under weight. Having to wait at the terminal for a hour and a half because of bad weather -- not the pilot's fault"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "The plane from Johannesburg to Doha was Fine but not as wonderful and comfortable As flight from Doha to Chicago"

Cons: "They lost my bag and that’s disappointing considering I have my bank account details in that bag. Very disappointed by this"

Pros: "Food, seat, overall comfort and timeliness."
Cons: "The entertainment system was not working - on a 12+ hour flight..."

Pros: "I was actually impressed with the entertainment selection :)"
Cons: "The economy seats are just unfortunately not a place you can get comfortable enough to sleep. On 14 hour flights one hopes to sleep."

Pros: "the flight was comfortable"

Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Hard cushioning and narrow seats on the 787"

Pros: "Good in-flight service"
Cons: "Cramped seats"

Pros: "In general the crew was very nice."
Cons: "The dreamliner is a little tight in relation to the B777. The Kosher meals very all the same for breakfast lunch and snack"

Cons: "1. rude staff - i stood in Jburg at the counter for 13 minutes (i checked my clock) while 8 staff ladies spoke among themselves in a myriad of languages. FINALLY one lady asked if i had been helped! I said no and she was clearly less than thrilled to be the one to help with my question. i literally just wanted to ask if my seat assignment was a window, middle or aisle, but it was like i was the bane of her existence and i interrupted their social hour. On my outbound flight (ORD to DOH) I also watched three staff members be beyond rude to guest after guest at the check in counter regarding baggage when they came forward to "re check-in" which was a new requirement for most people. There was a lot of general confusion on behalf of the consumers and the staff was NOT the least bit patient or helpful in explaining what they needed from us or why this flight had different procedures than normal. I still don't know why they were so fussy about baggage and made everyone re check in at the gate in fact. And they didnt do it to my baggage so i have no idea why they were so rude to some and completely left others alone. (didn't seem to have to do with size, carrying of electronics, i don't know?) 2. the physical flight - you changed my original flight time to something that was REALLY close for my connection from DOH to CDG, so you instead bumped me to a later flight without consulting me. it would have caused me to miss a connection flight I booked separately through EasyJet from Pairs to my home airport BIQ. I had to figure that out on my own. RUSH through Doha to make my 35 min connection and barely was allowed to board my onward Paris flight by the Qatar gate staff which was only cutting it close as a result of YOUR changes! Yet i was treated like i was somehow "late" and wouldn't be able to board ??? Again incredibly rude staff. Subsequently you lost my luggage because the connection was too tight. i landed on Friday and it didn't catch up to me until Tuesday. Not one person has said sorry or offered any restitution. And this is honestly what upsets me the most. I doubt anyone even reads this. pathetic. I work for a travel club and since Monday (so in 4 days) I have actively reached out to 4 clients to cancel and re-booked their Qatar airways flight to another carrier to get them to Johannesburg. They will be doing the same safari experience I did, but I will NOT recommend and book my clients on Qatar after my experience."

Cons: "You canceled our flight in the last minute. we were starting our holidays and missed one day included the booking reservation. We didn't get any refund regarding this issue. On the other hand, i booked my special meal and never received it."

Pros: "The flight was on time, not full and the crew and the entertainment was excellent. Very happy with the experience of flying on Qatar Airways from Johannesburg to Miami."
Cons: "Everything was well, the food was good not great (even for airplane food) and the only other issue is it seemed like trash from our drinks and food services was picked up for quite a while or until we brought it to the flight attendants ourselves."

Pros: "landed safely"
Cons: "Had to claim bags at Doha and go through multiple security screenings to board connecting flight. At one point all the security was not functioning and we were packed up in lines. Barely had time to stop at the restroom before final security check where it was all so disorganized. After that check we were told that if we left we had to go through security again. Would have been nice to know that upfront. It was a madhouse going through that final security check and my husband's wallet was lost for a bit. No one really tried to help and we were told to move aside. Finally someone saw that it had fallen beside one of the counters. It was all horrible. Because of all this our 5 hour layover was a hassle with no time for food, etc. The whole airport experience was confusing and badly handled."

Cons: "Entertainment system did not work Boarding at Colombo air port is absolutely the worst We have seen. I have traveled a lot. Took 1 hr 30 mins to check in 40 people."

Pros: "Respect the scheduel and well organize."

Pros: "Excellent in every way. Clearly a top tier airlines. I will choose Qatar Airlines at every opportunity."
Cons: "Nothing"

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: "I enjoyed the staff"
Cons: "The screens were old school and I HS a hard time getting it to work Also the sleep mask I received had sticky stuff all over it when I opened the package."

Pros: "Excellent Cabin Crews, Flights on time"
Cons: "Food is mediocre at best, comfort on 787 is terrible."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Because of poor connection, arrived for flight 15 min. before departure. Gate agent wouldn't allow us to board and wouldn't help us rebook. Offered no help."

Pros: "Seat space. Stevice. Terminal."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Attendant was rude and never really finished service, never remembered any requests and consistently skipped guests when providing food or drink service, cabin kept oscillating between either too hot or too cold."

Cons: "I've never had this huge an issue on check in. Set us back over 45 minutes, and we could not get the VAT refund. I will not be paying more to fly on Qatar again based on our incoming and outgoing issues. I wouldn't rate it any higher than other cheaper options."

Cons: "We took off in a terrible storm with lightning striking all around the plane. Very rough, lightning which scared the hell out of both me and my wife."

Pros: "Amazing and efficient when we had to be rerouted due to the hurricane we had excellent service and care at the hotel which made my stay for a short while a memorable"
Cons: "The plane was quite congested as the seats were very narrow coming back to Miami"

Pros: "Real silverware."

Pros: "Absolutely friendly Professional"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The food was very nice. The IFE was very nice as well. The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The was a lot of profanity used by the attendants that was not necessary. Secondly I reserved a front row seat in online check in, but it did not allow put mean in that seat. Which if they were full would be understandable, but every single one was empty."

Cons: "Food on the menu was not available. Some of us did not get lunch and were being offered bread. Some flight attendants were impatient with pax and unwilling to help especially with regards to Wifi on board , others were impolite"

Pros: "generally good overall for a 14 hour long flight"
Cons: "legroom could always be better for me......but this was similar to most other airlines"

Pros: "Crew, interior, seats"
Cons: "Food was average. Service could be better. For example, my wife and I never got our food at the same time or close enough. We had to ask for food or drinks. They should regularly ask if we need something. Empty water bottles (up to 3) were sitting on my table for hours till we landed."

Pros: "The crew was nice, and there was sufficient overhead space for my bag."
Cons: "I've flown hundreds of times, and this was the most most unpleasant flight I've ever taken. My seat didn't recline, the entertainment console was not working properly, and I had almost no legroom due to the design of the seat. The temperature was unbearably hot. And I didn't get my special meal."

Pros: "The seat was not up to the usual Emirates business class standard. The lights were never completely dimmed."

Pros: "crew was good but seat was too narrow, and there are too many little kids near us."
Cons: "do limit the number of passengers with little children and don't put senior citizens near them."

Cons: "More meals during the flight would have helped. Also the snacks had limited variety(most of them chocolate) and not enough fruit available."

Pros: "General flight was good. Loved the food."
Cons: "Beeing more than an hour delayed"

Pros: "The food and service was great."
Cons: "Boarding for priority was a bit slow."

Pros: "Crew and entertainment"
Cons: "Food and legroom"

Pros: "Emirates really knows how to treat customers"
Cons: "Flight was long"

Pros: "In all the flight was good, except for the food."
Cons: "They didn't have any option (not even fruits) for those who dislike spicy food. My colleague and I had nothing but bread and butter to dine."

Pros: "Good service by Emirates"

Pros: "The travel kits are much nicer now, appreciated the mattress"
Cons: "The boarding process in ORT was a horrible fail. they didn't announce the boarding of first/business and by the time I arrived at my seat there was almost no overhead room left because people from economy put there bags in the business area. The bathroom was definitely not cleaned enough, I went twice where the floor was soaked, the seat was wet and the sink full of toothpaste. I understand that every passenger should be responsible enough to clean up after themselves, but it was not an enjoyable experience. The crew was friendly enough, but it didnt feel like the personalized service experience that is usually the case (where they introduce themselves, explain the do not disturb sticker etc). Also I think there was something wrong with my seat because it didnt "lay flat" all the way."

Cons: "crew doesn’t seem to talk to each other. advised multiple times that my touch screen didn’t work and that i didn’t want the jain meal. your check-in interface does not allow changing food preferences. this should change"

Pros: "Need a little more leg room. Staff made sure the toilets were clean."
Cons: "No footrest."

Pros: "Upgrade to Business class"

Pros: "I love the positive and can-do attitude of your crew"
Cons: "A 4 year old banging on the back of my seat"

Pros: "A380 flight was very comfortable, with adequate leg room. A great feature for long haul flights. Good food and a very good entertainment system"
Cons: "Good was served late, in both legs. Flight departs at 7 pm but diiner was served after 10 (midnight Dubai time) Which meant our sleep was disturbed and when breakfast was served we had a full stomach."

Cons: "Did not happen. Flight was purchased fraudulently and fortunately was caught by Emirates and Amex. Please REMOVE all my contact information from your website"

Pros: "Wi-Fi"

Pros: "excellent staff and friendly flight attendant."
Cons: "i wish next time the flight will includes a hotel for the over night stay. I had to sleep on the seats at the airport."

Pros: "Staff were friendly and helpful. ICE entertainment onboard offered a wide veriety to choose from"
Cons: "The food was average"

Pros: "Good service"

Pros: "We will highly recommend to use this airline. We will try again to flight to any city that we know they will have connections . Is worth it to plan to stay a few days in Dubai. Is a great city , unique, different."

Pros: "Great staff from checkin to service On board"
Cons: "Food - wine poor too"

Pros: "Flight was quiet and very well organized"
Cons: "I normally choose vegetarian on all my flights, but emirates only has a strictly vegetarian option. Which means vegan - food was not good at all. Sometimes too spicy to even try to eat. I asked to replace my meal on occasion and took the continental breakfast which was great."

Pros: "the food was wonderful, the economy seats were comfy, and the service was superb. I really liked being able to watch movies and listen to music w/o a charge."

Pros: "The great content in the entertainment system and the wifi. Bed was comfortable and the service was fantastic. I also really enjoyed the bar in the upper deck. The A380 is a wonderful machine!"

Pros: "I say that everything was good but overall "excellent" because it is hard to fly for hours upon hours and say that it was excellent. All considered, it was good while Emirates (compared to other carriers) is excellent. These huge airplanes are amazing!"
Cons: "Flying for hours upon hours but nobody can do anything about that. Africa has a routine, including this flight, of filling the cabin full of chemicals - for insects? Prepare to cover your head and face!"

Pros: "The comfortable seats, the entertainment system, the food, the attention given by the flight attendants. A great airline!"
Cons: "The length of the flight, but that's unavoidable."

Pros: "Space and the fact that everything worked. Food was excellant."
Cons: "I always like Emirates."

Pros: "leg room"
Cons: "the touch screen system was poor, limited movie choices, food taste, poor crew members etc"

Pros: "OK flight"

Cons: "need more leg room and ability to recline"

Pros: "Efficient, clean, friendly"
Cons: "None comes to mind"

Pros: "Entertainment Food Friendly Flight Crews"
Cons: "Had to rush to the next flight in Dubai."

Pros: "The crew were excellent. Very helpful and professional."
Cons: "All good!"

Pros: "Emirates business class is excellent."
Cons: "Cannot think of anything to complain about."

Pros: "Food and Entertainment beat Delta hands down."
Cons: "Unfortunately packed into a row with a lot of big guys"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "It was just ok overall."
Cons: "The first flight was late by over an hour and nobody could tell us why. They also serve food once and you don't get a snack or anything--you don't even see the attendants--for another 10 hours. Then they serve breakfast close to an hour before landing. The crew is constantly telling you to sit as if you weren't allowed to use the toilet at all when the seatbelt sign is on--and it's on the whole time. So you have to be asking permission to use the toilet when you are right next to the toilet door and about to go in because they don't allow you to use it. That's not healthy for someone to hold it."

Pros: "I will only fly Emirates when available to my destination from now on."

Pros: "I liked the boarding and most the crew was excellent"
Cons: "I specified ovo Lacto vegetarian because I eat cheese and diary. I got a stale and very small bread role with strawberry jam, wilted fruit and margarine for the breakfast meal. The non vegetarians got a full plate of croissant, cheese, fruit and jams. When I asked for butter I got no response. I asked three times before I could get some butter as I do not eat margarine. Lunch was wilted and slimy lettuce and tired fruit for dessert. The main meal itself was delicious but I was hungry the whole flight due to the small helping.. Another small but slightly fresher role and margarine again. Next to the non vegetarian meal there was less than half the food. It was very disappointing."

Cons: "My baggage didn't arrive although I was having 22 hours stopover in Dubai."

Pros: "Movies and internet"
Cons: "Took too long for food service. We were in middle two seats and my partner was feed and finished before I even got my food. They should go down each side at same time."

Pros: "Crew attitude and helpfulness. Food and beverage."
Cons: "Boarding procedures. Inadequate bathrooms for passenger numbers. Seat width. No economy plus seating."

Pros: "The wrap-around head rests help with sleeping. The good size blanket was comfortable and kept me warm. I really liked the bigger entertainment screen and excellent choice of movies and TV programs. I've never had 'Homes International' and 'Don't tell the Bride' on any flights, which are favorites of mine and are very popular.. I fly on 16 flights/year domestic and international. The flight attendants were very pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "It was a bit too cold. I was in row 50 on the aisle. I am vegetarian so was pleasantly surprised with the fish curry being on the menu, but couldn't see or taste the fish. A bit disappointing."

Cons: "Various tv screens would not stay in place in row 47 where I was sitting"

Pros: "The crew was friendly, helpful and hard working."
Cons: "Departure was delayed 2 hrs due to a leaking waterline. We stood on the ramp for 40 min waiting for the initial repair and after taxing to the runway, we turned back due to the repair not holding, going back to the bay for another repair which closed all 4 centre toilets."

Pros: "1. Friendly welcoming crew 2. Comfortable seats 3. Reasonable selection of entertainment 4. Clean amenities"
Cons: "1. Although i requested Halal food in advance, when i booked my flight, non was provided. 2. I got to the boarding gate, 10 minutes before the plane was initially scheduled to take off. I was the second last person to board the aircraft because there was a long queue at Passport control with only one officer for a prolonged period. The man at the final boarding checkpoint, insisted that i was late because of shopping, and insisted on me catching a new flight the following day. He said that they had already filled up the plane with Stand By passengers, and my bags had already been off loaded. I had to beg him to allow me to board, and eventually he did. About 10 minutes after the scheduled departure time, the captain announced that they were waiting for one more guest, and the flight actually left about 20 minutes later then schedule anyway. This series of evens led me to believe that the man at the boarding gate was trying to elicit a bribe from me."

Pros: "the crew was nice and friendly. the blanket was nice and big"
Cons: "the entertainment screen wasn't very responsive. it would be nice to have more snack options (like chocolate, ice cream, etc.) like other airlines do for such a long flight."

Pros: "All aspects of this flight were good."
Cons: "When we were waiting prior to our flight in the duty free area of terminal "A", Kayak notified me via text that the flight was scheduled for terminal "B". If I had not taken the same flight before many times, I would have been concerned with the incorrect information Kayak provided."

Pros: "The plane was old and the seats were not very comfortable."

Pros: "Business class seats spacious, clean"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Now I am seriously delayed to my destination"

Pros: "The check in staff"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Newer plan and the entertainment was pretty good."
Cons: "Flight arrived an hour later but the biggest issue was the limitation on food options. It seems selections of popular choices ran out fairly quickly."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Delays. Hadvto rush to catch connecting flight"

Pros: "Crew was fantastic and caring!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The only thing that was good was that it was a direct flight."
Cons: "Our half of the plane was being pumped with heat while the other half of the plane was a cool, comfortable temperature. Various people complained throughout our 16 HOUR flight and they did nothing. The crew didn't seem to care that we were basically having heat strokes and unable to sleep because of the heat. They informed us that they were unable to change the temperature in our part of the plane. Yet, when we finally started our descent into JFK, the air conditioning came on. Funny how that worked all of a sudden. I will never fly them again."

Cons: "I missed it because SA crew would not help us when it had been held for us. (See above)"

Cons: "we were in the plane for nearly 30 hours due to an air traffic controllers strike in Dakar. During that time we were only served two meals and a sandwich. And during the four hours on the runway in Gambia the crew seemed to disappear rather than offer drinks snacks etc. which would have helped. It seemed to us that SA Airways should have known about the strike before we left Johannesburg and made alternative arrangements rather than making decisions while we sat int he plan on the runway in Gambia and then backtracking to Ghana."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Too crowded."

Cons: "I’ve never been to a smooth South African Airways flight. Both on the way to South Africa and returning from there the entertainement system didn’t work."

Pros: "Staff were friendly, food was good, seats comfortable"

Cons: "Continued to lose my luggage."

Pros: "Stewardess was very professional, spoke clearly, was very helpful. On time and affordable rates!"

Pros: "The flight itself was comfortable and the service attentive."
Cons: "Poor connection in JHB - Immigration at O R Tambo chaotic and took more than 95 minutes. Nearly missed this connecting flight to Cape Town. Literally ran from terminal A to B with my on board luggage over my shoulder. I had rechecked my main bag for the domestic flight but, nevertheless, it was left in JHB and had to be forwarded on a later plane. The folks meeting me in Cape Town had to wait an extra hour at the airport to collect it. Very unsatisfactory. As the national airline, SAA should pressure O R Tambo into improving their terrible immigration services."

Cons: "They lost our bags and it took a week to get them back."

Cons: "Entertainment system hasn't worked right on the last two flights I've taken on SA air."

Pros: "The downstairs lavatories are genius!"
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "Good food - requested special meals. Complimentary drinks. Seats roomier than many other airlines. Easy to get help over the phone. The crew on our way to Africa was extremely friendly, on the way back they were ok. Able to help yourself to water at any time."
Cons: "Seats are hard - take a pillow!"

Pros: "the staff were friendly and the plane lovely. improved seats"
Cons: "no vegetarian meal option"

Cons: "Chicken slightly undercooked"

Cons: "My luggage was "lost" for more than half of my trip and when I finally received it all of my electronic and various other items were stolen."

Pros: "I enjoyed the movies, the music, and games to pass the time on the flight. I appreciated the aisle seat that was chosen for me in front. The pain in my knees were decreased and the bathroom was near. I found the staff pleasant and compliant in the rules/regulations with take off and landing procedures. The food choices were delicious and fulfilling. Overall a good experience and happy customer."
Cons: "I would like to add one more meal to the flight. I think three meals for 15 hours would be fully satisfactory. The boarding was confusing with all the different lines. In order to cut down on the confusion the staff should announce what each line is and organize it in a better fashion. In addition, for good measure during check in of the flight the extra security procedure should be explained; therefore everyone can expect this longer process and throw all liquids away plus have bags ready to be rechecked. In closing, these small changes would be ideal for a smooth transition and comfortable trip."

Pros: "I don't remember a great deal after flying for many long hours. I do know I enjoy the vegetarian breakfasts quite a bit."
Cons: "I can't think of anything that was untowards. There was a minor delay in boarding I think but that wasn't a concern to me. I like to think we are each doing our very best. The flight attendants work very long hours with a slew of people. I appreciate your inquiries."

Pros: "There was one flight attendant who served my aisle who went above and beyond for her customers. She would sneak extra dessert or wine to those she noticed enjoyed it most."
Cons: "Plane was not very clean."

Pros: "The service on board of this flight was amazing! From the food to the staff. Aircraft was impeccably clean and the comfort of the seats were surprisingly good."
Cons: "There was nothing to dislike besides de size of the toilets!"

Pros: "The food was fairly good and ample. RAMONA"
Cons: "It was JFK TO JOHANNESBURG- I did NOT like the having a lady insist I needed to be in a wheelchair in order to make it to the Cape Town gate of departure when I did not ask for a wheelchair. MOSTLY I DID NOT LIKE that --when I insisted I must return to the plane to get the cell phne I left and KNEW where it was left-she insisted that SAA wold send it to CApe Town and I could get it there. She claimed she phoned the flight attendants to send it on. I learned this is NOT how SAA does it and I never got my phone. I do thikn, perhaps, someone who saw it called and--being it was still with SAA I think THEY went and climed it for hemselves. I did NOT think SAA accepted enough information from me and no info at first. My phone looked just like an I-Phone. It had a rubber purple back cover on it. MOST of the entries were face painting designs that I NEED. I do NOT think SAA had the passenger who got it 10 days later in Johannesburg was aasked what was programed into it. I did NOT think the reps in lost and found were knowledgable or efficent when I spoke with them several times."

Cons: "My flight was cancelled and I was stuck in Johannesburg overnight. I was at the airport all day the next day trying to figure out if I would get back to the US."

Pros: "Cheap price. Normal bording. Staff at the airport was great"
Cons: "Staff in the plane was sort of rude. They seemed bothered if you ask for more water or another wine. They served a meal and drinks and right there while you are eating they passed by with coffee quickly asking if you want coffee when obviously you are dinning and you have a cold drink. Then they cleared and no coffee offered. It's not a huge deal but it felt like they did it so to say, yes coffee was offered but nobody wanted it and got it out of their routine. Entertainment system was buggy and antiquated."

Pros: "I liked that I got the seat I wanted (bulkhead) even though I had to pay for it. It made all the difference and I was able to sleep. I also liked the fact that I had onboard entertainment as I haven't had any on the last 6 flights on SAA. It was a pleasant surprise!"

Pros: "The crew was extremely nice! Especially the older English gentleman."
Cons: "When I purchased my ticket, they asked if I had any dietary restrictions. I noted that I was vegan – but there was no vegan option for my flight to Johannesburg from New York. That was pretty annoying as I was very hungry. The flight back home, from Johannesburg to Dulles, was a bit better as there was a vegan option between Ghana and Dulles. Other than the food the flight was OK. I think all airlines need to work on making the seats more comfortable. It is almost impossible to take a reasonably comfortable nap on an 18 hour flight."

Cons: "Boarding was messed up with wrong information on the monitors, 2 lines formed. Service was not ok considering it was business class."

Cons: "I missed it due to the delay of LH"

Pros: "Ran out of meal selections before they reached my row, so they started on our end for the next in-flight meal so we were certain to get our choice. Appreciated this accommodation."
Cons: "Passenger next to me was too large for her single seat, and I spent the 16hr flight squeezed between her and the window in half my seat"

Pros: "The fact that there were a few vacant seats helped with finding room to stretch out."
Cons: "The changing of the departure gate at the last moment.."

Pros: "The simple fact I arrived safely."
Cons: "Both entering and leaving Johannesburg on South African was terrible. The plane is so hot once you get on to take off. It takes forever for air to circulate and you feel as if you cannot breathe. The rules on the flight are bizarre. They disable your entertainment a full half hour before landing. They make you remove the blanket that you've used to get comfortable from your lap and toss it to the floor not knowing your body temperature. They hover over you as you are not trusted to power down your own personal cellular device like a damn child. I will not fly this airline again. KLM and Qatar also go to South Africa."

Pros: "- Happy with the volume of sparkling water available in bottles on the flight (I do find occasionally that other airlines don't stock enough)"
Cons: "- Entertainment system turned off 40 minutes before landing is very frustrating and boring - I was seat 1A; and thus on the bus first, but out lat and thus ended up at the back of the immigration line behind the entire plane (needs a fast track line if you want one bus for the business and economy seating) - One the second sector, economy and business class were streaming off the plane together. This is one area that the staff have in their control to offer a higher level of service to business passengers. - No champagne on arrival - only 2 meal selections (no beef) - only 2 bottles of Shiraz available (after a long search)"

Pros: "Timeliness"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Basically everything. The plane was old and a lot of things were broken. The tv screens were touch screens which didn't touch. The crew was not friendly or helpful. The captain told us we were in a circling pattern and wouldn't be landing for 30-40 minutes, yet the crew made us turn off all electronics and out our seats up. So for 40 minutes we sat there uncomfortably. It was unnecessary. Basically everything on this flight was uncomfortable, inconvienent, and bad."

Pros: "Not much really. We were searched with our shoes off, body molestation at the boarding gate."
Cons: "Flight crew at my section was rude and impatient, food was horrible, entertainment was not working, and prior to that we were searched at the boarding gate and had our water we bought at duty free seized whilst alcohol bought at duty free were allowed on board. I guess water is now more dangerous than alcohol."

Pros: "Kensani Nyembe (especially) and her crew were excellent"
Cons: "The flight delay I experienced added 8 hrs to a 24 hour journey and despite assurances in Joburg from Lerate Lempe that I would be allowed access to the lounge at JFK airport, all I got was a 25 USD voucher in a rubbish restaurant in the terminal. Most of the customer service was poor (including the young lady who didn't take it upon herself to suggest next steps after informing me of the flight delay - her apparent lack of concern about that and time taken to rebook me a new flight was beyond belief). The food was substandard (quality and quantity given the 14hr journey) and in-flight entertainment didn't work for a couple of hours. The queues at JFK were slow moving, unnecessarily long and your people did not seem concerned with the fact that passengers had to stand in line for an hour at least to check in. To top that off, because your airline does not have the body scanners mandated by the US, all passengers had to have a secondary body search at the gate. Sufficing to say, SA Airways, you are being left in the dust by BA and Emirates."

Pros: "Check in"
Cons: "Not applicable."

Cons: "When we went to check-in for our flight using a kiosk, my husband's status was marked as "stand-by," even though we had confirmed our reservations. While we were trying to figure out what to do next, a uniformed airport porter, not one of the numerous hustlers hanging around JNB, offered to help us. He escorted us to a South African Airways' priority check-in station where the agent got on the phone. The agent and the porter conducted their discussion in a language I do not understand, however, when she saw me tip the porter ($10 US), she said something to him, and he told me that we needed to give her $20 US to "fix the problem." I handed him a $20 bill, which he slipped to her. Our confirmed boarding passes were then issued and we had no problem boarding the plane. I found this experience very disturbing. I will avoid using South African Airways in the future."

Cons: "The entertainment console doesn’t work"

Pros: "Amazing friendly crew. Spot on entertainment!!!"
Cons: "Toilet facilities could have been cleaner"

Pros: "The crew members were very accommodating and friendly. They do a wonderful job. When I told them that the power was not working in my seat and that I needed it for my CPAP (I call it my anti-snoring device), they arranged for me to move to another seat where the power worked for the CPAP. When the power did not work in the new seat for my laptop, they offered to let me charge it in a more powerful outlet near the galley."
Cons: "The power didn't work for my laptop. It did work for my CPAP device. Some of the seat control buttons were out of order."

Cons: "Poorly organised meal service"

Cons: "Entertainment is non existent. Plane is tatty."

Pros: "Nothing?"
Cons: "Lounge seating and services. Boarding. Lots of uncontrollable people trying to be first to board."

Pros: "The crew was amazing. The crew is an asset to the airline"
Cons: "Boarding is chaotic."

Pros: "The crew was okay, though a little bit occupied and thus ignoring some of the customers' requests. The seats are comfortable and spacious with enough leg room"
Cons: "The food could have been better. Honestly much better"

Cons: "Flight attendants where bothered to serve us beer, water or any other snack during he flight. I had to beg in both occasions to have my tray taken from my seat."

Pros: "Excellent airline overall Great seats for sleeping"
Cons: "Business class seats are not well appointed Nowhere to put a bottle of water - storage handbag and shoes etc could not be reached without undoing the seatbelt and screen far away from the seat Voice commentary was muffled and therefore unable to be heard"

Cons: "Old flight - equipments were not in order like the handrest was broken, TV’s were broken and not functioning, touch screens failed to react to touch, signs on buttons at the handrest were smudged. 3 out of 6 washrooms in Economy class were not working. At one instance I was locked in the washroom as the door was not opening from inside, until I had to call the attendant. Entertainment options were limited. Food was below average. In one of my meals I got opened and melted butter. Cabin crew was not responding to the calls when I needed water. I finally got it after ringing 4 bells and 45 minutes. Overall, a terrible experience and would not choose to fly with Ethiopian again."

Pros: "Staff are friendly and pleasant. Seats are comfortable with more space than some airlines.Good choice of films."
Cons: "This was probably the worst boarding I have ever seen. They called the Paris flight while people were still boarding for Frankfurt. It was chaotic, with people struggling to find which line to be in. There was no visible guidance from Ethiopian ground crew. Eventually got in line. One guy checking boarding passes for both business and economy. Very slow with again no crowd control. Children were not given priority. Eventually many people went through business queue while others had been waiting in economy. Ground staff were standing around watching and not helping or communicating. Poor show from Ethiopian!"

Pros: "Leg space, TV screen and entertainment and the decline of the seat."
Cons: "The toilets floors could be cleaned often. The food service cart could move for urgent pass to the toilet."

Pros: "Ground stuff was trying tobe very helpful but it ended with trying. Also they did not inform us about he change of stoping in Cairo"
Cons: "Old airport that is uncomfortable with bad lounges that are not even worth going into."

Pros: "I liked the crew. They are kind."
Cons: "The boarding in Addis was an absolute nightmare. No one could figure out where to go and when. Mombasa and Nairobi flight boarding was mixed. I've never seen anything like this. There was not enough room in the boarding area so everyone was pushing and shoving. I can't recommend Ethiopian airways to anyone after this experience."

Pros: "The customer service from crew members"
Cons: "The snacks"

Pros: "Having never even heard of Ethiopian Airline, our expectations weren’t very high. We found the boarding process to work well. The staff was great and the meals were very good. The flights were on time and efficient."
Cons: "On many of the flights we had to use the roll up stairs. The water that they served tasted like tap water. The seats seem closer (less leg room) than other airlines."

Pros: "Everything was on time, high quality, and enjoyable"
Cons: "There was a fight on the llane but it was because a passenger with mental issues was provoked by a couple so ahe beat up the wife. This was not caused by ET and crew at all, but they stopped it."

Cons: "The whole thing was a disaster. I lost my connection flight due to incompetence from the Ethiopian airlines representative"

Pros: "The flight crew was nice. We received a hot lunch even though it was a short flight which was nice."
Cons: "Boarding was interesting. It should have been an easy boarding as it is a small regional airport. Instead it seemed they went out of their way to make it as confusing as possible. Instead of going through security over here lets have you wrap around the hallway to just have to come back to where you were before?"

Pros: "On the sequrity check our watch was stolen. And we did not get any help from ethiopian airlines...we would like to get help."

Cons: "we booked this flight because it was the shortest. However, we received an email a few days ago saying that the flight on the way back changed and the layover has increased from 2h to almost 7h! this is very upsetting since Im pregnant and the bring such a ling time at the Addis airport really ruined my flight experience"

Cons: "The plane from Entebbe to Addis Ababa was very old with tight seating."

Pros: "The food was amazing and the plane is more comfortable and you can relax."

Pros: "The food served is awesome and sufficient. The flights are comfortable and the crew are friendly. My luggage came right on time and was properly handled"
Cons: "Well there was no entertainment in the flight. That is it"

Pros: "Aircraft A350 super nice entertainment t equipment and interior very clean."
Cons: "Lost my luggage, could not trace it and no compensation."

Pros: "The plane is spacious lost of leg room"
Cons: "can improve on the food"

Pros: "The staff where so dedicated. The food was very real and crunchy. Go for the beef instead of chicken. I had both. Was a ten hr flight."
Cons: "The fact that they write your card details carelessly on a pierce of paper when making an inflight purchase. Should be swipe and all done. No need writing those sensitive data down."

Pros: "USB plug, nice TV/ entertainment"

Cons: "I sent them an email about an issue with my flight but they didn't get back to me"

Cons: "Chairs were not reclining. Asked for blanket and didn't get one so I was cold."

Pros: "Cabin crew were all charming."
Cons: "Unfortunately, I had to request earphones (which were not supplied in the seat pocket in front of me) five times from three different attendants over the course of an hour and a quarter before I was given them. This was not just so I could watch a movie but because the quality of the plane's public address system made it very difficult to listen to the announcements from the captain and the crew. Listening on earphones I was able to hear everything clearly. Why it had to take so long just to give me earphones I don't know."

Pros: "Great prices, and helpful staff"
Cons: "The food was mediocre, almost poor."

Pros: "Great prices, and helpful staff"
Cons: "The food was mediocre, almost poor."

Pros: "Excellent chicken dish"

Pros: "When I originally booked this trip it was with one connection and a 16 hour commute time. They added legs to my trip which significantly increased travel time. I tried to cancel my flight because I booked the flight with the necessity of arriving by specific days and times and they insisted on charging me for it so I just forfeited my seat and trip all together. There's nothing good to say about Ethiopian airlines."
Cons: "They are very unprofessional and unhelpful and I'll never book them again."

Cons: "Crew was not friendly and seemed to ignore my requests. Seat was not comfortable. Food was okay."

Cons: "Crew was not friendly and seemed to ignore my requests. Seat was not comfortable. Food was okay."

Pros: "Changing my flight at office in Lalibela, agent was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for over one hour and NO explanation was given.. nothing, passengers kept approaching the gate, No one would give them an explanation as to why flight is delayed, when it was departing, nothing , we just sat and waited No communication at all"

Pros: "POLITE AND GENTLE CREWS. SERVICE WITH A SMILE. AIR FARE REASONABLE COMPARED TO OTHER AIRLINES"
Cons: "IF FARE IS CHEAP THAN THAT DOES NOT MEAN THE SERVICES SHOULD BE POOR"

Pros: "Customer service was great and the restrooms were cleaned regularly unlike some long haul flights where it's not the case."

Cons: "It was a night flight (~4-5 hours), however, 80% the time the lights were on... people did not want to eat/drink... and get disturbed constantly by the crew. We just wanted to sleep. Without lights"

Pros: "New aircraft with automatic flushing toilets!"

Cons: "On both flights. From Tel Aviv to Addis Ababa and from Addis Ababa to Tel Aviv my seat would not recline. These were night flights and the seat in front of me did recline. so it was a very unpleasent experiance"

Pros: "The food. And the on board entertainment. Staff was also nice but a little bit sloppy and slow."
Cons: "."

Pros: "The food and the crew were nice. The entertainment would go in and out, with the buttons malfunctioning at times."
Cons: "Started boarding 4 hours after scheduled departure. Though there was bad weather, our departure was still delayed way past the "adverse weather" conditions at the airport. In the 4 hours we were in Washington, there was no communication whatsoever. No one to inform us of us potentially missing our ADD to JHB connecting flight. None of the workers wanted to help us."

Pros: "Would have liked to have seen more of the cabin crew, but they were pleasant."
Cons: "Food choice was limited. Ethiopian often ran out of meals and just gave me whatever option they had left. Entertainment system didn't always work properly."

Pros: "The inflight music (tons of awesome Ethiopian music, from jazz to pop) and solid Ethiopian beer."
Cons: "The boarding process was cumbersome but I think that's because of the airport not the airline."

Pros: "I liked that we didn't have any issues and didn't crash."
Cons: "Food is the SAME every time! Service was not great, skipped me twice on drinks and they seemed annoyed when I asked for a water and a water refill since the cups are so small. I get that its a quick flight and they have to finish before a certain time. But service for the people in the back should be the same as those in the front."

Pros: "EVERY THING WAS ON TIME"
Cons: "FOOD NOT GOOD"
