Airline reviews

Pros: "Helpful friendly crew, reasonable ticket prices."
Cons: "Luggage was delayed by 24 hours, customer service desk in Johannesburg EXTREMELY helpful, in Kigali they were clueless. Transit area very crowded, humid and stuffy."

Cons: "Time was never kept. we had a delay in LGW for more than 2 hrs. I had a 17hrs layover in Kigali. I was not aware that i would not be booked in a hotel to rest. I had to make my own arrangements. And another extended delay out of Kigali to Nairobi"

Cons: "It was ok"

Pros: "Took the newly opened route between Cape Town and Harare. Was a great experience. Thanks to RwandAir it is easier and cheaper to fly directly between these African cities. Lots of potential on the route. RwandAir really opening up business and leisure opportunities much needed in these areas. Nice to avoid Tambo airport."
Cons: "Both flights were slightly delayed (which happens), information about the delay could be better at Harare airport. But no biggy."

Cons: "No vegetarian option Bad boarding procedures, no one gets direction and it was very slow"

Cons: "THERE WAS MEAT INSIDE MY "VEGETARIAN" MEAL!!! This is totally unacceptable!"

Pros: "Friendly service"

Pros: "I think that I appreciated all the details during the trip. As I get my kayak app in my IPhone, i firstly received a notice that the check in started.... At each step, I could see the time discounted through my phone"
Cons: "As I said, I liked everything. From the departure to the landing"

Cons: "My luggage was broken into and stolen. They sawed off the zip on my suitcase and broke the handle. Stole a number of personal items including a belt, perfume, t-shirts and cash."

Pros: "The food initially given at 2:00am IST was really good and so I didn't even have to wake up again to eat."
Cons: "The breakfast was not as appetizing."

Pros: "The Airbus. The crew's simple commitment to excellent service"
Cons: "The unconventional check in closure 90mins to departure even when the plan arrived late"

Pros: "Good and clean planes, good service"
Cons: "We had couple of ours delay and not well communicated"

Cons: "We incurred significant extra costs (visas, taxi, hotel costs) because Rwandair changed our flights around from what we had originally booked, with no compensation or help navigating the visa process."

Pros: "Friendly staff, decent snacks and entertainment options"

Pros: "The plane was nice and the captain gave good info."
Cons: "Why was dinner served at 2AM? They woke me up three times to serve drinks and food and the cabin lights were never turned off, for an overnight flight! The Kigali airport waiting area is awful, and the holding area made it so that every child had to use the bathroom as soon as we boarded."

Pros: "the snack was terrific!"

Pros: "Landing was very smooth. I got window seat as requested."
Cons: "My bags were mistagged and almost sent to Lagos instead of Nairobi. The agent noticed the error after the second bag was tagged. He went to search for my first bag that already went down the ramp. Although I gave him the exact description of the bag (purple hard case), he retagged the wrong one (red soft case). Good thing he took a photo. Third try was the charm but shouldn't have happened in the first place. Agents need to be more diligent with where they are sending bags and to double- and triple-check before he luggage is sent down the ramps."

Pros: "What did you like? the attendants were very kind"

Pros: "Information during flight"
Cons: "No TV or programmes to entertain slong"

Pros: "Good"

Pros: "on schedule. staff at counters and flight crew were courteous and professional."

Cons: "The airline moved my original non-stop flight forward by 3 hours. The new flight conflicted with another flight I had earlier in the day. The airline would not allow me to cancel the flight, and could only offer me a 1-stop flight that arrived at my destination hours after my initial flight would have arrived."

Cons: "Reservation was not honored, and only 3 prople out of 5 get boarding. Airline did not provided any other alternative and our friends had to cancel tour and return home!"

Pros: "Good food, friendly and professional staff, a new and sparkling clean plane, swift retrieval of luggage upon arrival in Kigali. Thank you!"

Pros: "Overall comfort and staff friendliness"
Cons: "Landing was a bit turbulent"

Pros: "The staff at the airports were friendly."
Cons: "After thorough check (and hours at the airport) at the holiday destination, Dubai, my luggage was deemed lost. The DXB lost luggage staff helped me complete a 'lost luggage' report. However, the staff member told me that 'if' RwandAir found my luggage, I would be responsible for going to the airport as RwandAir does not have lost luggage delivery like most airlines. For the six days of my holiday, I waited for phone calls and checked emails expecting to hear from RwandAir. I heard nothing, RwandAir had made no effort of any kind to locate my luggage they had mishandled. Upon flying back home, I checked with the initial airport (DXB), the transit airport (Kigali), and my final destination airport (Brazzaville). My luggage was not in any of the airports mentioned. In each airport, and the RwandAir office at the Brazzaville airport, I presented the initial lost luggage form from the prior week and it was apparent that nobody, no airport, and no office was interested in finding my luggage. RwandAir, at no point, apologized for losing my belongings or in any way attempted to make up for seriously harming my holiday- not to mention the fact that it appears I will never see my possessions that were last seen being taken by RwandAir staff at the beginning of my holiday travels."

Pros: "New plane, friendly crew"
Cons: "Cramped seating, poor signage & boarding announcements"

Pros: "Like Kigali it was clean and efficient."
Cons: "Food is almost inedible"

Pros: "Plane was clean and very comfortable, staff was courteous. Surprisingly good food for a short flight"
Cons: "Changed flight times without informing passengers on BOTH of the legs. Staff were polite, but were more interested in following the rules than helping people get on their flights. No customer feedback forms were available"

Cons: "No entertnainment"

Pros: "I like the overall service in the plane."
Cons: "I didn't like changing the boarding time."

Pros: "Planes were great and flight crew excellent."
Cons: "On arrival at Kigali airport we were quickly moved through security to the departure area. This area was hot and without any facilities for toilets or water. We sat there for at least 1 hour and was a low light in out trip."

Pros: "Planes were great and flight crew excellent."

Pros: "Everything went well as expected..."

Cons: "We were delayed by 1 hour because more cargo was being loaded on to the plane. When we arrived in Kigali, we found that our bags had been left behind to make room for other cargo. We arrived and checked in well before the 1 hour cutoff and we were under the weight limit, so there was no reason for our baggage to be left behind. We were informed that our bags would NOT be delivered to us at our next destination, that the burden was on us to retrieve them AND there was no stipend or any type of refund to compensate us for the inconvenience. Since we were continuing our travel by road to Uganda, we had to pay extra to have a driver return to the airport the next day to retrieve and deliver our bags. This is very, very poor customer service!"

Pros: "RwandAir flew us to Nairobi instead and I thought that was good of them to make that change for us. The above evaluation pertains to the flight to Nairobi."

Pros: "Clean planes"
Cons: "Ground crew at NBO - Rwanda Air has Kenyan Airways do the work in the terminals. Bad idea!"

Pros: "The flight times were perfect and the seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The food was just ok"

Pros: "the flight got me to Gaborone on Monday morning"
Cons: "Person in Kigali checked my bag to Johannesburg, not Gaborone. Flight was delayed one hour. Slept on a chair in Johannesburg airport for three hours."

Pros: "Everything was excellent, service, cabin, food."
Cons: "First announcement cockpit was just before landing. Would have liked some information before takeoff and once in the air"

Pros: "Orderly, organized, courteous"

Pros: "Very professional - gave us a good meal - although flight was a little more than an hour. Will recommend to friends"
Cons: "Service & good landing"

Cons: "The arrival time was stated as 1:40pm but in reality it was a 1:10pm arrival so I had arranged my driver to collect at the wrong time and he wasn't there when I arrived."

Pros: "Unfortunately i missed the flight from kla to Nairobi via Entebbe due to closue of Entebbe Road. Return from Nairobi was okey but was delayed for about 40 minutes"
Cons: "Food needs to be addressed"

Pros: "They were professional, timely and courteous. Except for one flight attendant who was a bit rude, the entire flight was enjoyable"
Cons: "The rude flight attendant who was welcoming people to the plane"

Pros: "They have great food, amazing crew, great customer care.."

Pros: "Flight attendant are helpful."

Pros: "Friendly staff, comfortable business class seat with lots of room, good breakfast"
Cons: "No priority checkin for business class and no priority boarding for business class. I don't those are even that hard to organize . Airport ground contractors haven't been instructed to provide service to business class?"

Pros: "Service! Smooth ride and good food!"

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

Cons: "Water to drink during flight."

Pros: "Helpful, friendly crew. Comfortable plane"
Cons: "In flight entertainment could be a little better. Perhaps let passengers know about the inflight entertainment available via WiFi"

Pros: "Food and drink was good."
Cons: "Every single flight (4 total) took off late and even caused us to miss a connection. On the way to Madrid from Entebbe, my luggage was mislabeled and sent to London and now is completely lost. It has been two days of a trip of having no clothes, shoes, or toiletries other than what I had on my person. And I have yet to hear from anyone with Ethiopian Airlines, only representatives from Madrid airport."

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind"

Pros: "Asked for water that I never received. Wasn’t allowed to bathroom although still 20 min until landing and other people still got up"

Cons: "The chicken was undercooked."

Pros: "Large space"

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

Pros: "Your crew were great."

Cons: "The cabin was looking a little tired."

Cons: "The food could have been better. Honestly much better"

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"

Pros: "Helpful crew."

Pros: "Ethiopian Airlines it great."
Cons: "Nothing"

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: "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: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Poor registration, Long queue for bagage scanning in very hot airport Aircraft and business seat just medium"

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."

Pros: "The quality of the planes"
Cons: "The food"

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: "Plane size, entertainment options and food were all great."
Cons: "The person next to me was rude and leaning over on my side but not much the airline can do about that."

Pros: "Spacious, good entertainment system"
Cons: "Transit at Bole International is awful. No gates for aircraft to dock which seems to be a common problem these days, slowing down the boarding and alighting processes."

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: "NOTHING!"
Cons: "everything about it, from the random cancellation of my flight, to missing my connection, and their inability to get me another flight, spending over 24 hours in travel for a mere 6 hour flight. No customer service, would never recommend Ethiopian Airlines to anyone."

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: "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."

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: "The take was very smooth."
Cons: "The seats did not recline & I had a back problem"

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: "Flight was delayed. No information was given on this. Also,Addis adaba is not a tier 1 Airport. I'd rather pay the same. Money to go through Qatar or dubai."

Pros: "1. Nice flight 2. flight attendants good customer service skills"
Cons: "Equipment issue-tv not working well , unable to charge my cell phone USB port not working. 2. Food on my return flight was terrible I am a vegetarian was mostly served warmed up frozen vegetable which were terrible 3. Return trip set next to noisy people, had coffee spilled on my dress, was upset and did not enjoy return trip .Grateful for flight attendants who moved me to another seat."

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

Pros: "Seat sizes were okay and the boarding times were on time."
