First time traveling along with an elderly wheelchair🦽passenger and the entire trip experience from security check, onboarding, flight to off boarding were very smooth and effortless. The stewardesses were very professional, patient and caring during the entire flight. I highly recommend them.

Delay due to mechanical difficulties made us miss our connection in Doha. Qatar Airport staff extremely unhelpful and told lies. Tried to imply we were responsible for missing connection when Air Canada was at fault. A terrible experience .Will try to avoid Doha Airport and Qatar Airways in future.

Staff was not up to standard. Very rude.

Needs to improve

N/A

Courteous! Long lines.

The in flight services is great. However, the planes do not depart on time if they are departing from other Airports except in Doha. If you have a small window with your layover, be prepared that you might miss your connecting flight. My luggage was delayed because their departing flight from a non-Doha Airport was late to arrive. Their baggage department is beyond horrible, there is no number to call and have to use Whatsapp and a reply can take more than 3 hours. I had to track the luggage by going the Atlanta International Airport and wait 3 hours for a manager with Qatar airways to first board a flight and then to get my luggage, since they do not have anyone in baggage services. For this I will never fly Qatar Airways ever again.

Disorganized and lacking courtesy in Nairobi JKIA. Business travelers counter not displayed. We paid about $5000 for return tickets because they rudely locked us out saying “you are late.” They had sent us for a new 24 hour COVID test having rejected the 72 hour we had. We did not understand their logic because passengers were still in line. We were in line from 4pm, the flight was after midnight. At PHL, being American citizens, we were not required to present a 24 hour C test! We feel robbed!

Services were excellent and given on time.

Pros: "Services are the best"
Pros: "I really loved the food and the attendants were super friendly and helpful"
Pros: "Excellent Cabin services."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. Food was great. Clean bathrooms. Great entertainment."
Cons: "We had our passports and boarding passes checked five times in the course of 2 minutes by five different people one after the next. My cabin luggage was searched right before boarding. I appreciate the need for security, but that was excessive and unnecessary. In the peak of the Corona virus craze, the security made all passengers take off shoes and walk without any protection. This is not Qatar Airways doing - New York JFK security B S, but I am sure airways companies have some say to change it."
Cons: "don't know of anything"
Cons: "The Nairobi airport experience could use a bit of help. there's no a/c and even late at night, it was uncomfortably hot everywhere. Once I'd checked in to the gate I was trapped and couldn't easily leave to get water or go to the restroom, which was increasingly annoying as my flight was delayed. Pretty sure all of this is beyond Qatar Airways' ability to control."

Cons: "Everything was perfect other than the food was not so great i had stock ache the entire flight."
Pros: "Crew was amazing"

Cons: "After I got in my seat an Islamic lady came and said that I was in her seat. I looked at her ticket and while it was the right seat number, she was on the wrong flight. I got a stewardess to help her. She had gone through 3 boarding pass checks and was still on the wrong flight. They let her fly!"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and delightful."

Pros: "Everything frim the xrew I could at the JKIA, NBO to Delhi. One thing more from my city Lubumbashi, I didn't care about getting my phone bzttery low. I could chzrge my phone all the journey long. And from Nairobi, I dodn't czre at zll about my phobe, because I knew I could charge dur to the usb device. If ever something to complain about, I'll let you know. Regards Richzrd DIAS"

Pros: "Dreamliner"
Pros: "All the services plus the entire team"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Small single aisle plane No wifi, no power ports, no individual screens Qatar is great about serving water but not other drinks -- I bought drinks inside security but there was another round of security at the gate -- they confiscated all of the drinks I bought"
Cons: "I missed my flight from Nairobi to Melbourne then the airlines asked for penalties and fare difference which in total was much higher than booking a fresh one way flight. I felt that the crew at Nairobi airport handled the situation pretty well however, the staff at the Nairobi reservation office were a bit cold and not very helpful."
Pros: "Crew"
Pros: "Great cabin crew"
Cons: "Crappy old style recliner seats in business class for a 6 hour flight. Not consistent with the Qatar brand"
Pros: "Very crowded flight but still had room. Amazing and and easy to use entertainment. Super friendly staff. Comfortable seats. Exactly what I have come to expect from this amazing airline."
Cons: "The food could use some work. It is still better than most other airlines but not as good as most high schools. However, you will not go hungry because they make sure that you stay and hydrated on their flights. I do dislike all the dogs that are allowed in planes. Now flights have babies crying coupled with dogs barking. Takes away from the overall ambiance that Qatar tries so hard to achieve."
Pros: "I liked staff , boarding was organized food was not very good needs to be improved"
Pros: "Everything else"

Pros: "Service, friendliness of that staff"
Cons: "Other passengers used my carry-on baggage space and my carry on was placed far from me."
Cons: "JKIA airport was terrible. Staff were late to come to the check in counters. Why can't they be there earlier than one hour so we don't have to stand in line for so long with our bags. Totally shambolic affair."
Pros: "Qatar is not glitzy. Better than that, it was straightforward and relaxed and comfortable. Crew was pleasant and helpful."
Pros: "The crew was professional and friendly. The flight was on time."
Cons: "The plane was not as clean as the one from Doha to New York. The first movie that was played was inappropriate for children under 16 years old."
Pros: "The crew were highly welcoming and nice."
Cons: "The Oryx screens had a lot of glitches and the brightness was very poor. It wouldn't let me change the language and the controller was stuck."

Departure times were late

Cons: "The crew never answer the calls when we call"

Pros: "The timing of the flight and available entertainment"
Cons: "For economy class, maybe more variety to meals?"
Pros: "Keeping time"
Cons: "There should be wi=fi."
Pros: "Seats were really comfortable, able to lean back further than most, with large screens and good entertainment options. Also liked that there were open areas on the plane that you could go stand up and stretch out for a while at."
Cons: "About halfway through the flight the bathrooms definitely needed cleaned. By the end of the flight they were disgusting, with toilets and sinks clogged and no tissue. I'm really surprised Emirates allowed this to happen, because everything else was great."

Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Crew were very professional and polite, entertainment was awesome all the latest movies, food was pretty good. Thanks for free wine and drinks. Crew were very kind."
Cons: "Though more comfortable than other flights like KLM, it was still a little cramped"
Cons: "Requested an aisle seat at the front or an emergency seat and got neither. I could hardly move my long legs. I was glad it was a relatively short flight. Is it just on flights to Kenya that passengers DO NOT receive the travel pouch?"
Cons: "Former travel to Dubai offered food vouchers. No vouchers given and the layover was over 5 hours and portions were smaller on the plane. Bad in flight entertainment screens."
Cons: "poor service"
Pros: "Non"
Cons: "Non"
Pros: "Smooth flight. Attentive crew. Good entertainment options"
Cons: "The toilet had no toilet paper so I used the paper hand towel and prayed it did not block when I flushed. The beef option was not that great. I should've chosen the chicken."
Pros: "The boarding was quick."
Cons: "Attitude of crew Terrible food Outdated entertainment"
Cons: "Very good"
Pros: "I was upgraded to an exit row when the staff saw how tall ineas"
Cons: "Entertainment system control broken"

Pros: "I really like the entertainment and the air cameras."
Cons: "I like everything"
Pros: "seating availability Food service"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable, food excellent, and entertainment system fantastic."
Cons: "A 7kg maximum carry on weight is super low."
Cons: "Didn't have a good experience in Kenya, not with flight but at the airport. Went through hell. They need to improve on their customer service. I am quite sure I am entitled to bring whatever I want as long as it's legal . But there's lots of corruption and they will mess up your reputation. But at the end of the day they want me to bribe them. I was Really upset."
Pros: "The entertainment options were great!"
Cons: "There was no leg room at all in economy. My knees were in the seat of the person in front of me. Most of the food was terrible and I only ate the bread. The TV is on the back of the seat in front of you and is a touch screen. You have to touch pretty hard. So, every time the person behind me was scrolling, they had to hit my seat."
Pros: "The attention to my two nine year old kids. They enjoyed the flight."
Cons: "The washrooms are to few for the people on the flight. We were always queuing as the toilets were always occupied"
Pros: "Attentive flight crew and spacious interior"
Cons: "Food, food and food"
Pros: "Traveling internationally is grueling, but Emirates business made the trip easy. After my Nairobi to Washington DC flight, I was able to have a productive day instead of sleeping the first full day upon arrival like normal."
Pros: "Emirates allows you to start inflight entertainment as soon as you board and are seated. That makes any wait time more enjoyable."
Cons: "This particular flight was full. And I believe they may have been understaffed. I received my special meal but then the drink service didn't come around until most people were finished with their regular meal service. They didn't serve drinks and meals at the same time, for some reason. And the meal clean up took place way after everyone finished eating. It was an unusually long wait. This was surprising coming from an Emirates flight."
Pros: "The crew were friendly."
Cons: "wifi wasn't good - I couldn't connect. Wine choice wasn't good (white). Would have preferred a sav blanc"
Pros: "This is my first flight out of Nairobi (have made 8-10 others) for which the airline boarded using anything other than a division between first & economy classes. Emirates boarded economy passengers using zones (A-F), which was more orderly."
Pros: "Crew and entertainment"
Pros: "• Food was good •The flight was comfortable and I felt saved •The crew was very nice •The flight was cheap compared with service •The entertainment was excelent but you need to add more songs from Africa ."
Pros: "From the top to the bottom, everything was excellent except for..."
Cons: "...the boarding, which was somewhat chaotic. An announcement was repeatedly made that the final boarding call for the flight had been issued, and suddenly the entire assembly of passengers waiting before the gate stood up en masse and moved toward the gate, where we ended up standing for twenty or so minutes while the passengers were boarded in sequence according to seat assignment. I'm certain that Emirates has a protocol for gate announcements, but one of their employees certainly didn't know what it was."
Cons: "When it is a very full flight and every seat is needed, the space for passengers is very tight."
Pros: "Crew v good"
Cons: "Food .. Fish undercooked ... Aircraft bit dated"
Pros: "Good service good leg room swift boarding and off boarding"
Pros: "I enjoyed every thing."
Cons: "In Kenya we was waiting to get a seat from Dubai. That was not good."
Pros: "Overall everything was good."
Cons: "Poor check in services in Nairobi. I waited for 1 hour and half to get my boarding pass."
Cons: "The crew wasn't very responsive"
Pros: "The good was good and the staff treated us with respect."
Cons: "When I reached at Dubai l could not get a seat to come to Boston as they had overbooked. But it was a blessing for me as I was given a free round trip ticket from Boston to Kenya to use within one year and for that I thank you."
Cons: "when I arrived at seoul, incheon airport, I found that one of my gulf clubs was broken. it was the fist time that the golf club broken. I was so upset"
Pros: "Love flight with emirates every thing is good"

Both flights were delayed by at least 1 hour which was discouraging. The boarding process was random and very chaotic.

Missed connection due to a 1,5 hours delay on the first flight, resulting in 24 hours delay to destination. Poor assistance at the airport. Long wait with not even internet connection. Awful experience.

Late departure, the plane was filthy since people were dropping lots of trash in the aisle. The bathrooms were almost unusable because people peed on the walls and floor, and left soaked bathroom paper on the floor and toilet. Most people ignored the crew and didn't wear masks, including people who were coughing.

Pros: "Timing"
Cons: "Business class"
Cons: "They won’t allow me to fly"
Cons: "Everything was ok and no delays"

Cons: "Food could have been better. Plus a glass of wine/beer either sold or complementary wouldn’t hurt"
Pros: "On time"

Cons: "737 B 800 seats don't recline much like Turkish air or Saudia!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Boarding not good"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Egypt air is one of the worst airlines in the world so everything could have been better. Literally everything"
Cons: "Layover time too short so a small flight delay resulted in a missed connection. No entertainment system on board, seats very small, food bad and disembarking was very slow."
Pros: "Good crew. New plane."
Cons: "Leg space was tiny. Uncomfortable seat."
Cons: "75’ delay with no info One toilet out of order No safety checks by crew"
Pros: "every thing"
Cons: "OUr departing flight was delayed almost 1 1/2 hours, resulting in a missed connection in Cairo -- this is not uncommon. The connecting flight waited 6 minutes, then left us. Arranging an alternative (through Rome & onward by late evening) was done , but no one was at the transfer desk for an hour."
Cons: "Im still not st my destination due to delays of the airline"
Pros: "Flight durations were good."
Cons: "Better entertainment provided. Also got moved around to accommodate their colleagues, which I wasn’t too fond of being pushed to a middle seat."

Cons: "Passenger seating next to me (I was sitting in an aisle on a 3-seat row, economy plus) kept on leaning towards me all the time. I had to "create" of sort of barrier between the two of us with a couple of pillows. A lady sitting in the row in front of me - a 50-something y/o woman with husband and 3 kids keep on reclining her seat to the point that I was barely a couple of inches from the top of her head, even as I was eating. I had to forcefully push back ti get some room."
Cons: "Check in employee playing games on his phone instead of talking to me"
Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "It took over an hour to check-in. People were pushing in because it was not well marked and nobody directing the people. It was terrible. The plane has very old seats, and no entertainment screen on seats, still the old monitors hanging from the roof."

Cons: "Really great and kind service."
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: "Professionalism of SA crew"

Pros: "Nothing. Could not catch the flight"
Cons: "Could not catch the flight."

Pros: "overall I like the flight"
Cons: "Inflight was bad,technical issues very often"
Pros: "We delayed a bit at JNB and there is no open working wifi . with such hours to spend at the airport, i would advise to have internet access for travellers. plz attend to this."
Pros: "Liked the flight crew"
Cons: "Hated the meal, hated not having power, hated the uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "I watched "This is Us" for the first time on the entertainment system. Glad you had that program! The breakfast is good. The dinner is a bit of a weird mix of food--fish, waakye (rice and beans), spaghetti, and fried plantains all in the same dish?"
Pros: "The food was amazing, try the curry beef."
Pros: "I liked the timeliness of the flights and the friendliness of the flight attendants."
Cons: "I did not like that there were no personal entertainment portals in each seat for the passengers."
Cons: "Boarding the plane was chaotic and very unorganized. After boarding business class and people with special needs, why can't they board from the back of the plane a few rows at a time? It would make more sense and there would be less pushing and shoving. A lot of people were rushing to get to the gate all at once!"
Pros: "lots if space, so it was possible to sleep!"
Cons: "Crew didn't care about the passengers. They were just doing a job just wanted to do the minimum. Dish out meals. Collect trash. Disappear. Poor customer service when serving. Didn't check the cabin when the seatbelt signs came on. Chatting in the galley when everyone was trying to sleep Locked one of the bathrooms for their exclusive own use."
Pros: "Boarding and leaving on time. Well organized. Great crew. They give us a sandwich for free, unexpected because in USA they charge for everything in economy. The best ..... we got the suitcases very fast. More than any another airline"
Pros: "Willingness of customer service agents to get us through security fast to board our group's flight."
Cons: "Different baggage polices between SA and SAX. SA has two bags at 23 kilos each while SAX has one bag at 20 kilos, which makes traveling on SAX incredibly expensive when going through Johannesburg to any region where it flies. I understand weight limit on aircraft, but choose to be more upfront with baggage polices on SA's website if flying with SAX so people don't have a "gotcha" moment at the counter."
Pros: "food was excellent flights were on time except where second security check of every single carry-on made us late."
Cons: "The 'second' security check at the gate. I don't know it these were SAA persons or NSA but they were downright rude. After passing regular security check, these people removed a whole pile of items from our bags including items that should have fine such as bottled drinks just purchased at kiosks next to the gate, tubes of hand lotion (tiny ones), fingernail clippers that had traveled around the world (many, many previous security checks), and their attitudes were thats "too bad, throw these items out or don't fly" Such a bad start ruined my flight. Food servers onboard were equally 'grouchy;."
Pros: "Smooth flight: Kudos to the pilot. This was a smooth flight despite the minor turbulence we received."
Cons: "Crew: did not make us feel uncomfortable, Lack of attentiveness on their end - they gave me the incorrect meal despite specifying which meal option I preferred. l. Drinks were also not offered with our second meal and were only offered later during the flight. I was dehydrated throughout the flight. Entertainment: One would expect more show/movie options on a long haul flight. There was no variety, we only about 5 shows available, which were outdated. Dor example: Season 9 of the Big Bang Theory available was available despite the fact that Season 10 of the show has just come to an end on national SA TV."
Pros: "CREW: The crew from SA to Accra were very professional, well organised and friendly. It was evident that they were concerned about making us feel comfortable. They were very attentive to our requests. I wish this crew was on the Accra-Washington Dc leg Food: this was okay, standard plane food. The food options were made known ahead of time and the crew made sure that we were constantly hydrated. They even offered more than two drinks at a time. Very helpful and friendly staff. Smooth flight: Kudos to the pilot. This was a smooth flight despite the minor turbulence we received."
Cons: "Entertainment: This was very disappointing. There was no variety of the shows and movies to choose from. Request for more options and newer episodes."
Pros: "Good food, friendly crew, clean airplane."
Cons: "Flight was delayed but no announcement was ever made about the delay or the gate change that occurred. Very confusing to have one person walking around telling a few people here and there what the flight status was. Should have been informing everyone at the same time."
Pros: "I was pleasantly suprised that with such a short flight a meal was included. The cheese/vegie sandwich tasted good and it was fresh! The check in clerk was very solicitious and went to fetch a wheelchair for the handicapped man in front of me."
Cons: "It took a long time to check into the flight upon my arrival at the airport and although I desperatly needed the bathroom, there appeared to be none available until I cleared immigration. It was nice of the check in clerk to get a wheelchair for the disabled man in front of me, but it would have been nice if someone else could have been called to then help check our que in."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I can't believe it is SAA policy to not cover missed connecting flights or tours because of your delays"
Pros: "Hospitality wz good Cleanliness inside"
Cons: "All was ok"
Pros: "Spacious seats, excellent crew, very good entertainment and food."
Cons: "Nothing in particular"
Pros: "Excellent flight, crew was very respectful and caring I will recommend my friends and family and everyone fly SAA THEY ARE THE BEST."
Cons: "I love everything the flight provided nothing was out of line, keep doing the excellent work"
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."
Pros: "I initially selected my seat online two weeks prior to my flight, but unfortunately it did not register. When I checked in, the ground staff gave me a seat 45C, which was an aisle seat. I told him I had paid for a window seat. It turned out that what I paid online didn't go through. The ground staff insulted me about my credit card not being valid, which was not the case. It was something with your website because I had to select the seat several times. Regardless, he gave me another seat 65A (a window seat). When I boarded the flight I was told that they gave my seat to a mother so she could seat next to her son. I spent the entire time playing musical chairs moving from seat to seat until the flight was fully boarded. It was not a pleasant experience as I was very tired and just wanted to relax after boarding the flight. Needless to say, I will limit the amount of flights I take with SA from now on. The boarding experience as very unprofesssional."
Cons: "Despite online booking the night before and checking in at the airport, they failed to book me on the flight and had to move my seat. It was a very full flight so it made for a very uncomfortable 16 hours back to NYC."
Pros: ".Ability of the pilot and in flight communication to passengers during thunderstorm - Excellent"
Cons: "Quality of the in flight meal-poor. Communication to passengers about storm and delays prior to bith flights"
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"
Cons: "the flight was late - which meant we had to literally run through the airport to connect with our next SAA flight. the disembarkation was also chaotic - the crew could have allowed all passengers connecting with the next SAA flight to disembark first - but instead made an announcement (after everyone was already standing) advising that "passengers connecting on SA 375 you will need to really rush through customs as you only have a few minutes to connect". Not very helpful at all! Also - the food was terrible. SAA constantly serves up the worst possible airline food (and I travel frequently so am accustomed to airline food). Finally, the entertainment system is of a very poor quality and they constantly have to re-start the system."
Cons: "I was on a 10 hour flight and asked for a ginger ale. The flight attendant was visibly annoyed. On our return flight, the couple behind us experienced the same annoyance and bad service. I guess if you're not first class, they're bothered when you ask for things as simple as a drink... on a 10 hour flight. I even overheard a flight attendant being rude to a customer because she didnt put her luggage in the overhead compartment properly. Im aware that dealing with people can be exhausting, especially if common sense isn't so common, but if you're in the hospitality industry, you have to serve past that. Also, the plane just felt gross. There was food on the floor and it felt like the experience could've been better. More attention paid to detail. If another airline alternative exists, Im definitely trying them before booking with Saa again."
Pros: "There was a lady having fit and vomiting and really not well, the crew looked after her amazingly until touch down!!!"
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."
Cons: "Older plane without a legitimate business class. Seat was broken so I had to change seats."

Food could be better and there was no entertainment on the 737 Max 800 for a 4.5 hour flight, surely this can be sorted

Reliable partner. I am sure I will get to my destination in time. Best airline - spacious leg room, good entertainment are used between Addis and shorter distances. Worst airline carriages - shorter leg rooms, torn seats, entertainment systems not working are placed between Addis and Dulles (very long routes).

Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Safe"
Cons: "Nothing else. All was well"
Cons: "Punctuality. Time is off the essence."
Pros: "Helpful, friendly crew. Comfortable plane"

Pros: "No problems"
Pros: "everything was pretty adequate"
Cons: "they skipped me when they passed out food and never came back."
Pros: "The staff and flight attendants were pleasant. Good entertainment and comfortable enough seats."
Cons: "I wasn't looking forward to the 11 hour flight, however the 4+ hour delay was a significant inconvenience. We were on the tarmac in Abidjan for almost an hour, before we were informed that there were some technical issues. We were told it was a minor issue, until clearly it was a large enough issue as a lot of time passed by. Air stopped flowing so many passengers including myself became uncomfortably hot and dehydrated. The flight attendants only came down the aisle once with water, which was not considerate enough given that the air stopped flowing. Finally close to two hours later passengers we instructed to disembark without mention of how long the wait would be. We re-boarded the flight after about an hour and only then were informed that there was not enough power to fly the plane. Once we took off the air flow returned and the flight overall was pleasant. While safety of course is a priority, especially for a long overnight flight, communication could have been much better."

Pros: "I went for my honeymoon but ET never transported my luggage. I had to spend my honeymoon buying very expensive clothes and basic needs in Mauritius instead of relaxing. My luggage never came. I got it on my way back to Bamako. Nobody was even able to even trace my luggage or respond professionally on the phone. Out of hundreds of calls I made to them, they only picked up twice. ET screwed my honeymoon that I had planned for over a year. I'm so dissapointed that I don'y even want to claim reimbursement."

Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Rude flight attendants and desk staff that were not trained to do check in well. No entertainment available."

Pros: "Flight attendants were helpful and attentive."
Cons: "Boarding was fairly chaotic, there were no outlets for charging in the business class, entertainment limited."
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"
Pros: "Personnel were good. Food on ET is always great."
Cons: "Technical problem caused massive disruption in flight for all. Missed connections and forced unpaid for overnight in Addis. Truly terrible experience"
Pros: "nothing was exceptional"
Cons: "luggage did not arrive."
Cons: "Lost my bags, missed two connections due to delays, took a bus home instead"
Cons: "Food was served to passengers from seat row 30 and beyond very late. About twenty minutes to landing In Addis so passengers were forced to gulp the food Hurrying which is not comfortable"
Pros: "The crew where very pleasant, The service on the plane was good you had a choice of what meal you would like to have you also had a choice of any movie or entertainment that you would like to see or play there was more leg space and much more comfortable seating"
Cons: "I can’t fault anything on this flight."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything, from Customer Service, flight, baggage handling"
Pros: "all"
Cons: "none"
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."
Cons: "I'm 1.89 and knees are jammed on this flight. Legroom is better on their long haul flights."
Cons: "Please have a vegetarian option that does not contain cheese."
Cons: "There was a four hour delay for departure!"
Pros: "Boarding and the programmatically were fine."
Cons: "It was a middle of the night flight and everyone was sleeping. The lights seem to come on every hour."

Pros: "Not much. Will not fly them again."

Pros: "The short time it took to get to my destination. The great work done by flight attendants."
Cons: "The small seat I got."
Cons: "Ethiopia Airport is ruff. Needs bathrooms renovated and more places for waiting for flights the smoking lounge can be smelled through the hole airport"
Cons: "Ethiopian Air almost did not let me on the flight because I didn't have a return ticket through Ethiopian Air. Almost missed my flight, and was forced to purchase a return flight just so that I could make my flight. According to them, passport control would not let me into Cape Town without it, but customs never once asked for my return flight information."
Pros: "Nice staff, lits of attention in my aeat"
Cons: "Blocked toilet made cabin unpleasant and stuffy. I was uncomfortable because of smells in the plane. Shoukd have been fixed immediately. Not sure the Purser knownehat to do. Skywatch soes not work in center seats. Could not follow flight status."
Pros: "Seat sizes were okay and the boarding times were on time."
Pros: "The crew were pleasant. Overall servive was good. Boarding well organized,"
Cons: "Wasn't comfortable. Should improve on food. No entertaient during flight,"
Pros: "I like it when I was ushered to Sheba Mile Lounge to relax after a long flight from Dulles. And the food served was really a plus."
Cons: "I was pissed off because I should have been given a place to rest provided I had a 9 hour layover. The flight to Nairobi was delayed making me wait more longer with no clear communication. We have to board the plane in a different gate not the gate we were supposed to use hence causing alot of unneccesary movement which was tiresome. I hope there will be improvement in the future on this timing issues. This is not my first experience but 2nd one"
Pros: "Food was good Kept time as per the itinerary crew service was good Aircraft condition good"
Cons: "Adis Ababa airport was congested"
