The flight was delayed in Jhb and I could have had some help in Dubai trying to get to my connecting flight to London
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."
Pros: "Comfortable seats with pillows, blanket and good foods"
Cons: "The thing which was not good was the service. I would say that service should be done fairly not to see the people background so I asked for something but the crew did bring that. I would suggest to work on this portion. Thanks"
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."
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: "Flight attendants were excellent, food service very good. If the service is so good in economy, I can't imagine how nice it would be to fly in business class. I would fly Qatar Airlines all the time if the price is right."
Cons: "Economy row seats don't give you enough space for your legs between rows, but this is a systemic problem among airlines. You have to live with it or move up to business class."
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: "Friendly service with smile."
Cons: "Weight restrictions for carry on. I had a computer backpack along with a carry on bag which I have always taken with me on other airlines but it was not so here without paying extra charge for it."
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."
Cons: "Again had to wait for the flight for 8 hrs due to change in flight time with no explanation"
Pros: "I flew Qatar from Doha to NYC and the meal quality and options were excellent. I also enjoyed the amount of new Hollywood movie releases and music options."
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"
There were multiple delays and the food was poor. Better food.
Pros: "Not one thing about my experience."
Cons: "The alertness of the staff, the boarding process, the knowledge of the staff. Not breaking my luggage!"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and positive. The seats surprisingly reclined quite a bit. The dinner was actually good."
Cons: "The offer of wine. The wifi options."
Cons: "Entertainment didn’t work, the crew did nothing to help. The plane was hot and stuffy. My luggage is lost."
Cons: "It’s frustrating to not have the ability to select seats before arriving at check in counter when there’s really not much to choose from."
Cons: "Better entertainment for an 8 hour flight. Take under consideration that tall guys can’t be squeezed in for 8 hours.Give some space to people who really need it"
Pros: "Coach seats were comfortable but if the person in front of you reclines, your video screen will be inches from your face and it becomes difficult to get out of your seat."
Cons: "Crew was not particularly friendly....almost downright rude at times"
Cons: "There was a major delay - we never were told why and no one apologized. It was so stressful to make my connection."
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour so we were rebooked. Spent extra day in Zurich, and missed our hotel reservation in San Francisco. San Francisco was not our final destination. We had to fly for more than 24 hours in one day(time change). We missed part of our family function. It's been an exhausting trip"
Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "There was no entertainment on board. I was in the last row, and my seat would not recline, which made the flight less than comfortable."
Our entertainment/movie and audio did not work during our flight. Two of our bags did not make it to our final home destination. No personal assistant. Everything is via email/web with no assistance.
Pros: "The crew is very nice."
Cons: "Communicate with the other airports for delays....we got home 9 hours later and missed events which were planned because of a failed paperwork delay in Milano."
Pros: "Crew was very warm and friendly"
Cons: "The experience in the Frankfurt airport was terrible! We had arrived from Rome with an hour between landing and boarding. When we were directed to security at Gate Z, there was a huge mob of people, not really in lines. We didn’t know what we were waiting for or where to stand, but we and others around us were very worried about missing our next flight. There was no Lufthansa representative to help. Finally someone directed some of us to a long roundabout back way to Gate Z security. We did get to our gate in time for boarding, only because it had been delayed. Then we sat in the plane for over half an hour. Altogether, it took off more than an hour late, so we missed our flight from Chicago to Minneapolis."
Pros: "The crew was the best! Excellent service... kind and caring as well as professional."
Cons: "As always, more space but I was fortunate enough to get an exit row this time, which helped."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and attentive, I really like the food on Lufthansa"
Cons: "The movie selection was limited and dated"
Cons: "Light was delayed 3 hours. I had to wait 9 hours for a next plane to my final destination"
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "They cancelled my ticket because I missed the second leg of the flight. They didn’t even offer me an option and told me to find my own flight home. I had to pay $1100 on another airline to fly home tomorrow. I will NEVER use Lufthansa again"
Pros: "You can charge your phone on the flight. Got snacks on each flights"
Cons: "the food options"
Pros: "The red wine was good. The flight was smooth."
Cons: "Unpleasant boarding experience: While my carry-on item was well within the Lufthansa guidelines, the lady in charge of boarding insisted that it was too big and did not allow it in the cabin. I have used the same bag in previous Lufthansa flights without any problem. She sarcastically told me that "I am not Americanaki" - a derogatory expression used by those in Greece who consider the Americans naive."
Pros: "Lufthansa are excellent. Makes the US carriers look awful in comparison. Good seats, great service, on time, zero complaints."
Cons: "Some of the other passengers were annoying"
Our experience was terrible. Much of our itinerary was missing when we tried to reconfirm or when we arrived at the airport, even though the Kenya Airways App had us listed. By the time, it was sorted out, our flight from Livingstone to Nairobi was full. To meet our commitments (and get home), we had to find ground transport to Lusaka, purchase a one-way ticket for each of us to Nairobi, book an extra hotel night in both Lusaka and Nairobi, plus the cost of extra meals. For the 2 of us, we incurred over $1500 in extra expense. I filed a concern with the airline October 19, received a incident report number, but have not heard back as of November 2. It was a challenging and disappointing experience.
Pros: "The warm towel given for the hands and face at the beiginning was a nice surprise treat. Great also that blankets and headphones were provided."
Cons: "More food variety as some items ran out as they got to the back of the plane"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for an extra 2 hrs, with inadequate refreshments. Plane wasnt clean and had musty smell."
Pros: "Great plane Food ok Entertainment system good"
Cons: "Snacks in between meals (9 hr flight no snacks in between meals) Poor choice of films"
Pros: "By far the best food I have ever had in a flight. And I am still trying to figure out how we landed without and no one noticed. Every one on the flight were amazed that we didn’t feel a thing upon landing. The crew were so friendly and accommodating, it was unreal."
Cons: "Perhaps advertise more to Europeans as this airline is up there with the best of them."
Pros: "Crew was helpful."
Cons: "We were delaying on the outgoing flight and coming back as well."
Pros: "nothing always delay on schedule and angry to them as i didn't receive all my parcel on arrival"
Cons: "KQ needs to review everything and being better like 4 years ago, it was really the proud of Africa"
Cons: "Avoid flight delays. We missed our connecting flight on Dubai because of delayed departure from Nairobi."
Pros: "Both segmrnts left on time. The on- flight crew were pleasant. The 787 on first flight comfortable in biz class for a nap. Food service well carried out by crew."
Cons: "The 737 on second flight ....the long overnight one... Was very uncomfortable in biz class. On arrival in Nairobi...the hub city...there was no staff. A.c. no working or escalator in airport. Biz line for security not open. Food below average. No breakfast as we one meal."
Pros: "Crew efficient and eager to please. Generous with food and drink."
Cons: "Some seats had damaged entertainment equipment. One seat had a damaged USB charging port. We just used the one from the next seat. Another had a damaged remote control for the entertainment system. Still usable via touch though."
