I was very disappointed to find out when I tried to pre-pay that because I bought my ticket from you I wasn’t not allowed to pre-pay for my excess luggage that would save 20% . Also, AS airlines gave me the seat which was not reclining. I was very disappointed

I was very disappointed to find out when I tried to pre-pay that because I bought my ticket from you I wasn’t not allowed to pre-pay for my excess luggage that would save 20% . Also, AS airlines gave me the seat which was not reclining. I was very disappointed

Good service

Direct connection to US. Otherwise no in flight food choice and food quality is poor. Not much entertainment choices and are outdated. I just starved and slept through the flight.

All good other than departing 1 hr late!!

The most I like from Singapore airlines is the food comparing to other airlines. Also found a good movie to watch. Sometimes it's difficult to find an interesting movie on many airlines.

Pros: "the crew is fine. The seat was OK standard."
Cons: "Food was not good on my way back to L.A. Food was no flavor, pork cut up way too big, prefer having small piece of meat soaked up flavor sauce."
Pros: "The crew was very polite and very helpful. Boarding process was smooth and easy, however, the Singapore airport has security checks at every gate prior to boarding. This meant that after clearing this security process at the gate, bathrooms were not available until after boarding the flight and drinking water stations were not easily found in the secure boarding area. The aircraft was comfortable, menus were distributed early so that meal options could be made with full information in advance. The food was good and made available at routine intervals."
Cons: "On a 14 hour flight, staying well hydrated is very critical and difficult. It would have been nice for the crew to make more frequent trips through the cabin to offer just water refills to keep passengers hydrated and reduce plastic cup usage."
Pros: "Great seating"
Cons: "Free internet in long flights"
Pros: "Crew was attentive and made extra effort to meet special requests from passengers."

Cons: "All good"
Pros: "The cabin crew were fantastic. Food was abundant. Most boarding systems worked well. Choosing seats was confusing on website so we were allocated seating. The newer planes had a fantastic touch screen entertainment system. The seats on the newer planes were much more comfortable and roomy"
Cons: "The small seats are squishy on the older planes. The entertainment system on the older planes were dated and difficult to use. I felt sick after the flight to UK but felt fine coming home after one long flight on a newer plane."

Cons: "Not actually making it to Japan."
Pros: "Very attentive, great food, quality aircraft"
Pros: "The cabin crew was awesome.. they are for sure the super stars of the company... I wish all of them all the very best for a very bright future"

I was over weight but wish they had considered a lil as had to pay an other $300 extra.."

Pros: "friendly staff top Service top Inflight"
Cons: "new aircraft, 2 x usb charging ports, 50+ movies, very quiet aircraft."
Cons: "I purchased this ticket without realizing that the law stipulated 6-month validity remaining on one's US passport to enter singapore. The Singapore Airways website does not state this anywhere, and it was not until I arrived at the airport that I was informed that I wouldn't be able to check in, but nor could I refund or transfer the ticket. The booker should be obliged, when one enters the passport information upon purchasing the ticket, to make note if the passport expiration time is not valid for the flight. Spent $600+ on the flight, and the customer service person I spoke to from the airport was very abrasive and not interested in helping me figure out an alternative."
Pros: "I ordered a Indian vegeterian meal. It was very good. I feel bad about all the playin cups, and garbage that gets wasted. Please recycle everything."

Pros: "The service and fast flight"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Food, movies, support, were all wonderful."

Pros: "Very helpful and polite staff"
Cons: "Old B777-200 with small personal screen. And they don't have pillows on board."
Cons: "Long delay with in between flights. No special kits for kids to keep them entertained. Does not even serve drink when order special meal. Leaves the tray for hour before picking up. No transit help in hongkong. I can go on and on."

Cons: "None"
Pros: "The service was great! The entertainment was abundant. The food was tasty. No complaints at all!"
Pros: "great service. new plane. excellent video system."
Cons: "not much to complain about."

Pros: "Excellent crew service and entertainment."
Pros: "My luggage was lost, due to an error of another airline. but singapore air took care of it and made sure i got the luggage in Germany - even though it involved bringing it to me to remote location 2.5 hour drive from frankfurt. free of charge. Thanks Singapore airlines!"
Pros: "Great food and plenty of movies. Friendly crew"
Pros: "Food was exceptional"
Cons: "Breakfast was pathetic. Not fresh. For 16 hours flight only two meals were served and no snacks were provided"
Pros: "Service was good, but then that's expected."
Cons: "Leg room was bad... The foot rest attached to the seat in front of me kept lowering itself on its own."
Pros: "I enjoyed the entertainment, food, boarding was easy, crew gave a warm welcome and was comfortable"
Cons: "I'm good with everything as there was really no down side"
Pros: "Just as previous reviews mentioned, this is a top notch airline even when flying coach. The staff was courteous and attentive, the food was good and the flight overall was comfortable. I'd fly with Singapore again in a heartbeat."

There was not enough of one option for the lunch served in Business Class. Big disappointment. Meal should be served by soliciting the choices of the passenger in order. Passenger should not have to ask for the soup and starters to get them!!! So better training.

Airlines lost all my bags and is not being helpful at all in tracing them. Value of baggage is over $25,000. I expect a full refund and expect to be compensated for the loss.

Food

It was good

Movie choices are very limited, emirates choices were lot better

The staff lied to me all day long. No one informed me that my flight times had changed. I’m still sleeping on the ground in the Middle East. The worst experience I have ever had flying. With this level of incompetence and lack of compassion I can’t imagine how the airline business will survivor. This experience has encouraged me to stop traveling. May god have mercy on you and your customers. Not sure I can handle to be lied to my face anymore . Sleeping on the floor in the middle East with no hope of getting home

Seats were old and lanky. Food was bad, we got sick.

It's getting to the point in life that a flight in coach in those little seats for 9 to 15 hours is just too cramped. This was a packed flight with nearly every center seat taken. Good for Qatar airlines, which is a terrific airline, but its tough to ride in those little seats on long-haul flights

Qatar is undoubtedly the best airline in the world. Very impressed with their all around service and customer care.

The airport staff of Qatar airlines was UNFRIENDLY and UNHELPFUL. They all acted like we were bothering them. They gave no help in moving from one station to another. In general they gave an extremely bad first impression of Qatar airlines!!

Inaccurate flight time, need to improve customer service. It’s better for them to spend money on hiring professional staff instead of spending money on expensive ads.

Pros: "The seating was cramped for a 14 hours flight but the staff was excellent."
Cons: "Food options not always what I was expecting."
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: "Food was good and crew"
Cons: "Old aircraft from Doha to Dhaka."
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"
Cons: "Significant delay on jetway, temps uncomfortable,"
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: "Did not make this flight."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Excellent"
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: "Everything was first class with excellent service"
Cons: "Long flight with long layover in Doha"
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: "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: "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: "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."
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: "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: "Good food and excellent service"
Cons: "Noisy plane made the entertainment inaudible"
Pros: "The crew was amazing."
Cons: "Free first class upgrades!"
Cons: "Best airline!"
Pros: "Crew was great! For economy class, seat was comfortable."
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: "I am so glad to choose you guys thank you for everything"
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: "Food was phenomenal. Unbelievably good."
Cons: "Paid EXTRA for "Twin Seats". The bar in between seats didnt move. VERY uncomfortable for a 14 hour flight. People on that plane were like ANIMALS. Standing on the toilet seats, water all over the floor of the bathroom, out of toilet paper at 7 hours in. Disgusting. Never again."
Pros: "Good flight and crew but......."
Cons: ".........they left my suitcase in Seattle and it didn’t get on the flight to Dubai AND they didn’t want to give me a voucher for accommodation in Dubai despite a 15hr. wait for trip to South Africa. For two hours I pursued different officials in Dubai until they organized a voucher for overnight acc"
Cons: "The Crew could be more friendly"
Pros: "Great crew, especially Emma from the US and Amanda from Canada."
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: "Emirates really knows how to treat customers"
Cons: "Flight was long"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, good entertainment and nice crew. The flight was good so I could sleep from time to time."
Cons: "The flight was supposed to have one stop in Dubai. But the return route was changed so we had 2 stops, one in Dubai and another one in New York with long hours until the next connection. I arrived in Seattle a day later which made me lose a working day."
Pros: "The crew was friendly but not always available for requests. I suppose I could have used the "attendant call button" but it would have been nicer if they were more observant when I was looking at them with a look of "I need something" as they walked by"
Cons: "Boarding process seems standard - always takes a long time to board and disembark. Older planes have screens with poor touchscreen responsiveness and poor resolution. I was surprised to see that the short-haul flights had better screens than the long-haul flights. I was on a 3 1/2 hour flight each way from Dubai/Delhi with beautiful screens but the long-haul each way from Dubai/Seattle had the crappy screens."
Pros: "Upgrade to Business class"
Cons: "My seat would not go back. The person in front put his seat back and therefore I couldn’t watch my TV. No choice for food."
Pros: "Wi-Fi"
Pros: "entertainment part made time fly from Dubai to Seattle and staff too were awesome."
Cons: "15-hour flight not happy thing to be mid-air."
Cons: "No room to stretch feet out, couldn't straighten legs out. I walked as much as I could, but my ankles and legs were swollen for three days after flight."
Pros: "The food, crew and comfort were as good as can be on a 14 hour flight."
Cons: "The crew were so friendly"
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: "The whole experience from boarding at DXB to landing at SEA was excellent. Crew was very friendly and patient and food was great."
Pros: "The flight attendants were fine—not outstanding, but fine. But the representatives, both on the phone and behind the desk, are excellent—willing to go the extra mile to help out their customers."
Cons: "The seats in economy and the flight, in general, are on par with the average airline—nothing special. Also, unless you're into Bollywood movies, the entertainment selection is sparse compared to other international flights. And the touch screen is in need of re-calibration."
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: "their hospitality"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "The flight crew is great, the plane is modern and the in-flight entertainment is awesome"
Cons: "Food quantities could be more. In such long haul flights, individuals line myself who do not sleep in focus tend to get hungrier. Boarding at Dubai has become a mess ever since Trump instituted a restriction on carry-on electronic devices for flights to the US originating from certain middle eastern counties."
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: "Emirates makes it a bit more comfortable than other carriers while there is nothing we can do about the long flight and being in a crowded space."
Cons: "Prepare for more and more security measures."
Cons: "missed the flight to seattle due to emirates delays, total travel time was 50 hours instead of 20, what a nightmare"
Pros: "I appreciate that staff disrupts passengers as least as possible, and is generally helpful."
Cons: "Food was better on the way to Dubai/Kochi but definitely not bad."
Pros: "from start to finish Emirates has always got the best service for economy class, been flying EK from DXB BOM and SEA DXB BOM for last 10 years with complete satisfaction"
Cons: "no complains"
Pros: "leg room"
Cons: "the touch screen system was poor, limited movie choices, food taste, poor crew members etc"
Pros: "Excellent experience"
Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "Seat was broken, the crew was unresponsive to calls, food was expired/bad. Seating was terribly uncomfortable because it was broken. I couldn't recline and the crew didn't really help. I love Emirates and I always fly Emirates. So this was an exception and very disappointing."
Pros: "Its a 14 hour flight and there were some seats open so we were allowed to feel free and use them just so we can sleep better if we wanted to...."
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "The crew were excellent. Very helpful and professional."
Cons: "All good!"
Pros: "PLenty of room (for tourist class), great entertainment system."
Cons: "The crew did not pass through the cabin frequently enough to collect trash. As a result, a lot of trash built up in the seats and aisles during the 16 hour flight."
Pros: "Crew and service were great. Food was very good."
Cons: "Seats in economy are tight. Headphone jack is two pronged and no adapter so you are forced to use their cheesy headphones. Bring your own adapter."
Pros: "There was sufficient legroom at the seat. Amenities were provided to remain "fresh". Not computer literate, the entertainment was more than adequate."
Cons: "I told the flight attendant while boarding that it was not appropriate to have very little children on a flight of this length. Much to my chagrin, an Indian woman had two howling urchins one row in front of me. These howling urchins proceeded to scream their lungs out for 11 of the 13 hours of the flight!! One of the babies was so small, it looked like she had just pushed the critter out earlier that day!! Had they told the Indian woman to drive or swim to Dubai, the ratings would've have been excellent. I did not pay good money to have to sit in a NURSERY!!!!!"
Cons: "I loved it"
Pros: "The crew were courteous on the return flight, accommodating . They took too long to retrieve trash after food and drink services. The chairs recline too far back limiting the leg room, moreso knee room of the parties sitting behind the reclined chairs"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "In-flight entertainment was good."
Cons: "Was sitting in 41D. By the team they came to my seat, they ran out of the standard vegetarian meal. I was told I 'had to pre-order' the veg meal, although it had never happened in the 10+ long haul 14-hr flights I've taken with Emirates in the past. I was under the impression you only had to pre-order special meals like religious (Jain, Hindu) meals and not the std veg meal. Emirates should advise so while booking a ticket. Secondly the flight attendant who was telling me this was INCREDIBLY rude. This was extremely uncharacteristic from Emirates crew as I had always come across very pleasant flight attendants. This particular attendant constantly, and very indifferently, asked me if I wanted chicken or lamb, despite me repeatedly saying I am a vegetarian. This continued for a couple of minutes, and then she got flustered, rudely asked again if I want to eat or not. I said I am not going to eat a non-veg meal, and then she dragged the tray away. Without offering me any kind of veg alternative (Emirates carries pizzas as well in this long haul flights). I ended up not eating anything for that meal. Extremely unpleasant experience which was not expected from Emirates."
Pros: "I will only fly Emirates when available to my destination from now on."
Cons: "Boarding was 'mediocre' due to the air crash earlier in the day, led to a gate change and various chaos. Great staff through, so not really so bad and totally understandable...."
Pros: "The coffee was good for breakfast. After an overnight sleep, one wants coffee a.s.a.p. The scrambled egg breakfast was good and tasty. The croissant was fresh. The Batata bhaji was quite good. I appreciate the pre-meal wash cloths. Again, I like the good choice of movies/TV programs, as mentioned in my previous flight. The vegetarian pizza was very good. The flight attendants were very pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "I would like to be offered a second cup of coffee for breakfast, as the cups are small (not complaining about the size of the cups, as they are standard on planes). I asked for tea after lunch which when I tasted, it was only warm, not drinkable. I told the flight attendant and asked for a new cup of tea. I didn't get it until later, I asked again. This time I got it, but it was weak and not a good cup of tea. It was like a tea bag had been dipped once into hot water. Pre-lunch drinks were not served until after lunch."
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."
Pros: "Seat reclining was good. Fleece blankets were warm"
Cons: "Blankets had a really bad smell Food options were very limited - even bread was eggless"
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."
Pros: "The two check in bags rule."
Cons: "Not applicable"
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Customer services"
Pros: "I was happy to avail of Wifi in the sky."
Cons: "No entertainment! For an major international flight, one expects some seatback entertainment"
Pros: "Well organized on check in. Attentive"
Cons: "It was ok"
Pros: "New plane, fresh feel. Food is ok."
Cons: "Airline feels basic and no frills."
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: "Rwanda Air is the best"
Cons: "Landing at Kigali was bit rough"
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 planes and shuttles are nice and clean, and the staff are pleasant. I had a long layover in Kigali and the airline gave me accommodation and a food voucher (totally unexpected). Will definitely fly RwandAir again."
Pros: "They respect the timing"
Cons: "The luggage escalator is not working and you have to carry it from one point to another..."
Pros: "Fligh was on time, front desk staff were very helpfful, flight staff were friendly"
Pros: "Everything was perfect. On time arrival."
Cons: "Loud Nigerian co-passengers"
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 aircraft was nice, clean and seemed new. The staff was very professional, immaculate uniforms and appearance. Great attention to detail. We traveled from US - Nairobi - Kigali - Johannesburg, changing planes four times. These were some of the nicest planes. I felt very safe traveling this airline."
Cons: "Too much bread in the meals. The meals were adequate in quantity but each meal came with two rolls, which was excessive. Just a note - for the boarding area in the airport. Please have restroom facilities in boarding area, past security so you can use the restroom without having to go through security again. Also, if food and beverage is available for sale in the boarding area more passengers would make purchases."
Pros: "Nice blankets. Good service."
Cons: "Food wasn't that great and juices were very sweet (tasted like sugar water)"
Pros: "Good and clean planes, good service"
Cons: "We had couple of ours delay and not well communicated"
Pros: "Nice comfortable new planes."
Cons: "There wasn't much not to like."
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"
Cons: "The food options were unclear- they didn't announce what was in each meal, aside from the type of meat. It wouldn't kill you to have a vegetarian option on hand either, especially since your website doesn't work."
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: "Was good on time"
Pros: "The flight attendants are very welcoming and helpful. You feel safe and you get to see the pilot who is going to take you to your destination."
Pros: "Everything was on time and comfortable. Will take the same flight again in the future."
Pros: "Good food, friendly and professional staff, a new and sparkling clean plane, swift retrieval of luggage upon arrival in Kigali. Thank you!"
Pros: "Rwanda air crew"
Cons: "Lagos international airport"
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: "Staff courteous and friendly"
Cons: "Some choices on menu do not do well by time of serving ie fish"
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"
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: "Clean, comfortable plane and seating. On time service, courteous attendants. A meal served on a flight that was only about an hour in duration - very nice. Very pleased with this airline."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "The crew is nice"
Cons: "Both flights were terribly delayed and while the crew apologized we sat on a small plane. In Entebbe the reason was they overbooked the flight. So leave those people behind to take the next flight, don't keep us prisoners on a plane for hours... Stupid management decisions."
Cons: "Too cold on the plane - way, way too cold"
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: "The Rwandair plane was modern and clean. Kigali airport has a nice cafe, and check-in was efficient. The plane left a few minutes early."
Cons: "Check-in closes one hour before your flight. Economy class: Food was a clingwrapped sandwich. The attendant gave me two bottles of a good South African wine. Security has gotten quite uptight at Kigali airport. They now stop your cab a couple hundred meters short of the airport, and have a dog check the vehicle. You have to pass through another security checkpoint at the entry to the airport building, and a third security into the boarding area. The final security check even takes away any empty bottles you have. And don't take any fingernail scissors in your handcarry, even if they have blunt points. You may have an hour or more wait in preboarding, and without water or bathroom excess. So takke care of these needs in advance."
Pros: "Clean planes"
Cons: "Ground crew at NBO - Rwanda Air has Kenyan Airways do the work in the terminals. Bad idea!"
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: "When I asked for a seat change the crew was very accommodating"
Cons: "With covid in Seattle I was placed next to a restroom. I did not see any bathroom sanitation occurring during the flight, and no sanitizer available anywhere."
Pros: "Free entertainment"
Cons: "More comfortable seating"
Pros: "Timeliness"
Cons: "Seating"
Pros: "Crew is amazing and friendly"
Pros: "Flight was good and crew were good. Nothing very outstanding but by no means a terrible flight."
Cons: "The in flight screens weren't working well."
Pros: "Food was decent. Entertainment was decent."
Pros: "It suited the time i could travel"
Cons: "I felt although they said the two attendants were great they were at best mediocre especially the man"
Cons: "On time flight"
Pros: "Good flight as always with Delta. Sat in economy comfort, so of course the seats was comfortable. Flight Attendants were great."
Pros: "Food was so good. Crew was also very nice."
Pros: "Check in person was very helpful in rerouting our flight."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 3-1/2 hours. The gate crew booked us in another flight but did not issue a ticket, so after transferring to another terminal, we were sent back to the Delta terminal to be issued a ticket to a third airline since we already missed the second flight. Then, they lost our luggage"
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "The WiFi didn’t work well"
Pros: "New plane, charging stations"
Cons: "Seats did NOT recline, which seems to be a pretty poor planning for a red eye flight."
Cons: "I feel like all the problems the aircraft had it should've been repaired before trying to use it, upon boarding they told us the left engine had to be started from an external source, as a new flyer that was terrifying to hear"
Cons: "The boarding process at LAX was awful. I’m sure the horrible shuttle wait and transfer from terminal to terminal is the airport’s fault, but the airline did not do anywhere near enough to inform passengers of what was in store. It was confusing and annoying."
Cons: "They did great. The weather was poor, so it felt more like a roller coaster ride home. Made it safe and sound. Would’ve been nice to get an update is speaker about change in weather and the rough ride in store when the whole ride was so turbulent."
Cons: "I checked two bags and paid for them. The flight was full. I dutifully got in line for zone two. Next thing you know, at least 25 people got to board early and have free bag check. Really? I should get $35 dollar refund."
Cons: "Was not allowed to check in even tho flight was delayed. Horrible!"
Cons: "No dairy free options!"
Pros: "From check in from Delta App till receiving luggage, very smooth and painless process. Thank you!!"
Cons: "Separated from my wife even with pre-assigned seats. And One of the stewardess would not take my banana peel and has asked me to dump it into lavatory trash myself. She did not want to handle banana peel without a glove."
Cons: "You messed up my life with your poor service."
Pros: "Exceptionally helpful & attentive flight attendant, comfortable, on time"
Pros: "Cannot. Figure out how to use the wifi."
Pros: "I was still full from flying a Delta international flight from CDG to ALT, so I opted out of all food. They just offered snacks and beverages."
Cons: "It was PACKED. Could have used more space and no attempt was made to help family members sit together on this overbooked flight."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Plane smelled strongly of urine whenxwe boarded and for the next 6.5 hours."
Pros: "1. Great movie selection 2. Healthy food option 3. Craft beer was appreciated 4. Friendly crew"
Cons: "1. Wifi didn't work"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful"

Cons: "The plane bathroom was old and junky"
Pros: "Movies"
Cons: "Lack of legroom in economy"
Pros: "I was a little concerned flying West Jet due to poor experiences in the past with Delta, but the flights were on time, staff friendly and accommodating and the plane very comfortable."
Cons: "Nothing negative to say!"
Cons: "Left about 2.5 hours late because of a broken seat of all things. Apparently Delta doesn't bother to have maintenance staff on site at the airport."
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and incredibly helpful with our toddler."
Cons: "It was really cramped and the bathrooms smelled very strongly."
Pros: "Nice plane, smooth flight, flight was on time in spite of the disaster in Houston."
Cons: "There was food listed in the book but it was never offered. On a 4 hour flight, this is too long! Wifi was broken...I bought a $20 pair of earbuds in the airport specifically to watch movies and was never able to use them."
Cons: "The plane was about 10 minutes late departing (not too bad), but the Entertainment System was down for the flight, meaning that in addition to entertainment, the USB and outlet charging was not working and you couldn't see current flight status."
Cons: "The crew didn't even have the decency to wait for passengers to deplane. They were long gone by the time we got off. I found this pretty terrible service. Oh yeah and they announced the wrong arrival gate too. I'll never fly Delta again. There are better airlines that treat customers with more respect."
Pros: "the flight was on time and the staff very helpful"
Pros: "Availability of flight. Quick flight, on time"
Cons: "Lay over"
Pros: "The friendliness of the staff and movie choices"

Cons: "Snacks if possible"
Cons: "Several hours was added to my travel day when my Calgary to Seattle flight was cancelled and I was rerouted from Calgary to Vancouver to Seattle. It seems to me that if an airline initiated change that significant occurs, I should have an option given me to change my itinerary."
Pros: "I liked that from China to Seattle on the flight itself they took very good care of us making sure we were all comfortable, hydrated and well fed."
Cons: "The Shanghai airport did not open luggage drop off until 3hours before my flight when I was told it would open 5 hours prior, as well as tried to get me to leave to rent a hotel for the night as my layover was a few hours, then delayed Seattle boarding for over 45 minutes, once we were on the plane we were then told we were number 25 to leave therefore leaving us another hour and a half of a delay."
Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "Very cramped seating on this plane."
Pros: "Left on time, smooth flight"
Cons: "in Amsterdam any DELTA crew helm us, only KLM"
