Cons: "Nothing"
Read more about South African
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "It’s a hop and a skip, just 2 1/2 hours. But. Nice flight"
Pros: "Food and service as well as pilot trying to speak other languages. Great to hear him trying. he put a smile on the teams face. Sounded liked a good leader and that is encouraging, especially as the airline is going through a tough time."
Cons: "Seat comfort and tech access to USB ports etc."
Pros: "The crew was good and friendly. The seat was good for a domestic business class"
Cons: "The food was not good. Chicken was very overcooked and the mashed potatoes tasted like they came from a box"
Pros: "Business Class on the Code Share, South African Air was superb"
Cons: "The crew was not very friendly and that affected my entire experience"
Cons: "We placed a bid to upgrade and it was accepted at the last minute - we were traveling from the USA and something went wrong with our credit card so SA was unable to charge the card. When we arrived at airport a couple hours later the bid was no longer valid and the ticketing people informed us it would be $220 more per person than the bid that was accepted. Felt like it was a scam. We declined to purchase the upgrade at the increased price"
Pros: "Was surprised with a meal and all beverages were free including alcohol."
Cons: "Entertainment limited to predetermined programming on screens every 5th row or so."
Cons: "I was not allowed to bring my carry-on luggage on to the plane. Even though I was permitted to carry it on the in-bound flight. When I surrendered my bag at the plane's door I was assured that it would be safe. Once I got to JFK and passed through customs, I retrieved my bag and the Laptop was gone!"
Pros: "Not too late even though engine problem before takeoff"
Cons: "LEGROOM PLEASE. Also, for 16h flight a phone charger and an on-demand entertainment system could be considered."
Cons: "Business class was a joke"
Cons: "Bumpy landing Delayed departure"
Pros: "The last leg of our trip was very comfortable, modern seats, pleasant service, and great food."

Cons: "Was delayed by and hour and given a bad seat even though I am a premier member"
Pros: "We landed"
Cons: "Delayed departure No priority luggage handling (not in Iohannesburg and not in Cape Town). Luggage was marked “Priority” by carrier but it came out last off both legs. Not sure that works. Seated a super sized human in middle seat; this person could not even open the tray fully. Overflow several inches into my seat. Made for a very uncomfortable last 2 hours of a long journey."
Pros: "Liked the flight crew"
Cons: "Hated the meal, hated not having power, hated the uncomfortable seats"
Cons: "Terrible experience with a kayak agent! I need my money back!"
Pros: "The flight attendants were friendly and helpful. The flashlights they used to navigate the cabin were thoughtful."
Pros: "Superb services"
Pros: "The courtesy of the flight attendants"
Pros: "The vibe was happy and welcoming and the cabin was clean. Overall it was a well managed flight and friendly staff throughout the plane. Enjoyable and relaxing"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Nothing really great stood out. Normal trip"
Cons: "They lost my bags. Also the staff failed to properly ticket us for a new flight and were told to just run to the gate. The gate person was confused and it just made the whole event stressful."

Cons: "There was a maintenance issue that delayed us another 40 minutes that would've been nice if they'd checked for it while they were waiting for the late arrivals."

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

Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "On time Courteous, profesional"
Cons: "Sliced chicken loaf, with rice salad"
Pros: "Plane was clean and seats were comfortable. Staff was overall friendly."
Cons: "One of the interactive tv displays was not working, the crew attempted to reset the system for that one seat but was unable to fix it. Normally this would not have been a big deal but for a 15 hour flight with no onboard entertainment was disheartening. (There also aren't any plugs to charge personal devices to have watched instead)"
Pros: "Didn't make it."
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."
Cons: "Ground staff was rude when we were going to miss our scheduled flight and needed to be rescheduled. Then because they refused to help me rebook, I had to pay a "no show" fee (even though I was standing right in front of them at the airport), as well as a rebooking fee."

Pros: "Hospitality wz good Cleanliness inside"

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: "Flight on time. Easy for connection in JNB. We booked with SA as it had a better departure time as well as arrival time so we weren't getting at destination in the middle of the night. Instructions given in multiple languages which was appreciated."
Cons: "Very expensive to pick seats. No charging stations in the seat Confusing as to boarding process. It would have been nice if they would have announced which seats were to board in the front or rear."
Cons: "The flight was delayed otherwise everything was good"
Pros: "Efficient boarding and polite staff"
Cons: "Entertainment was terrible and on repeat. Also, I was seated next to an obese man who spread into my seat. Such passengers should be seated next to no one. It was a terrible experience."

Cons: "The entertainment system wasn't activated :/"
Cons: "This flight never happened and South African Airlines knew it was cancelled, yet we did not receive a notification. Instead, I lost a day of travel in Cape Town. I had to be re-routed through Johannesburg and then to Cape Town. Both flights were late and my luggage came in on the wrong plane. An absolutely nightmare of an experience."
Pros: "Plane had nicely redone interior decoration"
Cons: "Usually SAA has a veg option for food, but this time it was beef or chicken."
Pros: "Seats were much more comfortable - wider and at better angle than Etihad."
Cons: "Entertainment was lacking"

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"
Cons: "The issue was not the flight. It was the cancellation policy. I had a best friend suddenly die and I could not apply a credit to future travel on my 4000$ business class seat. It makes me not want to buy through kayak again."
Cons: "Not many movies to chose from."
Cons: "Kenya Airways sears had less leg room than Qatar"
Cons: "Seats are not comfortable for a 14 hour flight. One meal was served 1 hour before landing, Need for more drinks and food during a 14 hour flight. Flight was held at gate for 45 minutes before takeoff without explanation. Luggage was not transferred from a connecting flight."

Cons: "Avoid flight delays. We missed our connecting flight on Dubai because of delayed departure from Nairobi."
Cons: "According to the KQ App the flight was direct to Cape Town but when we got to the airport we found the plane was stopping in Livingston’s. The result was we were an hour late. Most annoying. Surely the App can be amended to alert us of such changes"
Pros: "I had an entire row to myself so this greatly improved my experience, but if this had not been the case I don't think I would have rated my flight as high."
Pros: "Kenya Airways changed their flight schedule 48 before our departure. The change meant an extra night before departure and an 11 hour layover in Nairobi before our connecting flight. The KA booking agent provided us with accommodation for the delay and the long layover. We appreciated that."
Cons: "We lost 24 hours in our travel. It was reasonable of the airline to provide accommodation during the delay but the night in Nairobi was at a very dismal hotel where the food quality was terrible."

Pros: "Service, crew"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The airlines changed the flight date last minute. They told us they'll take us to a hotel but by the time we reached the hotel after a long wait for visa we only had 3 hours left to go back to the airport. I missed my connection flight from Bangkok and I had to spend a hotel in Bangkok which I ended up paying extra for my hotel in Bangkok and connection flight from Bangkok. The airlines was not willing to do anything about my other flight I missed and me spending overnight in Bangkok."
Cons: "hospitality"
Pros: "Late arrival Nairobi. missed flight"
Cons: "Late arrival Nairobi. missed flight"
Pros: "The baggage handler for Kenya Airways, Derrick, in Johannesbury was very helpful checking on my delayed luggage. The flights and flight attendants were very good."

Pros: "Food. The pilot spent some time flying over the Victoria falls"
Cons: "Dirty bathroom"
Cons: "The airline doesn't accept payments for changing flights over the phone. I arrived at Lilongwe airport and they said I couldn't pay them there and that I should pay in Nairobi. The plane was of course late leaving Malawi and when I arrived in Nairobi, the plane was getting ready to leave. The customer service line had +20 people in it. I waited my turn then the agent said it was my fault that I missed the flight and the next flight would be $243 USD instead of $90 like the gate agent stated. Then they told me I had to pay the $243 in cash and they didn't accept credit cards. All of the ATMs were broken there. I returned to the agent and they did accept credit cards, they just didn't want to go to the office to swipe it. The entire ordeal took +4 hours. Worst customer service ever."
Pros: "New planes. Good airport, on time. Staff is very friendly all good. No complaints"
Pros: "Everything!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Lack of drink options, no diet cola?! Poor entertainment options"
Pros: "Flight management was okay from Mombasa up to landing in Nairobi"
Cons: "Plane could not park at the domestic arrival, yet at the international slot we had to wait over 15 Minutes without communication by crew. Captain only announced when parking slot became available. It took long to get baggage delivered to domestic side and when baggage arrived some including mine were wet with stinking liquid in spite of no rain around airport. at the end Passengers on a later flight made it smoothly out and eventually lost 45 minutes since landing and dirty baggage."
Pros: "I was surprised at how good the food was. Really surprised to run into someone I knew from a previous trip to Kenya. She was assisting a handicapped person, so don't know if she worked for Kenya Airways or the airport. Unfortunately, there was no time to talk."
Cons: "Flight cancelled streessed up"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled after waiting from midnight until 6:00 am in the Airport. Could have gone to a hotel... lost 2 days"

Cons: "10h delay very basic food (especially for business class) Basic service level No side treat"
Pros: "Service by one attendant Helen- courteous and helpful with Dufree"
Cons: "Services by male attendant very deplorable, lacks courtesy to clients. Old aircraft with overhead TV screens showing only one channel or flight route. In this age and time, KQ can do better for the obscene amounts we pay. Flight plan changed and we were not informed till we entered the plane."
Pros: "Crew Communications every. Inbound Captain Landings and Take off"
Cons: "Captains Landing outbound Fugi Airport Siera Leone and Landing in Accra. The Pilot caused Panic, he is inexperienced. Captain flight 5595 to Accra from Monrovia on Sep 2,2016. Disaster awaiting"
Cons: "My laguages did not arrived and delay on both doigt. I missed my connexion to Mumbay from Nairobi on 3rd. Therefore, I missed my unchageablble flight to my final destination. I had to buy last minute ticket for Bangkok-Koh Samui which was very pricy! Any compensation so I'm feeling very unhappy!"
Pros: "The crew on Kenya Airways is generally fantastic. Always pleased to travel with them."
Cons: "My luggage did not make it on to the flight.This seems to be a common thing for flights from Nairobi to Antanarivo."
Pros: "On time, fast effciient process"
Cons: "Partocularly that you cant get the boarding pass in the KQ App, so hassling trying to get it resent by SMS etc. Also ... seat sizes are too small for averagely large (6 foot) people."
Pros: "One or two of the representatives that I spoke with were helpful, but the others were not. After having to purchase a separate ticket, the flight itself was fine. Nice food and TV."
Cons: "The price to adjust my ticket was far more than a new ticket. Incredibly difficult to work with. Will do everything in my power to not fly Kenyan airlines again. The airline policies are what is holding the airline back, not the people in the ground."
Pros: "Check-in"
Cons: "One of 2 bags (labeled PRIORITY) did not arrive, my arrival was 7:30am and there were several flights during the day, yet I only got the bag around 7:30pm. I did make several calls and in the morning sent a driver with my passport and luggage tickets (the number of the luggage ticket was also communicated by me through phone). Yet, there was promises but I did not hear about any follow-up. So the bag was only 'found' when the taxidriver got a call to pick it "in 20 minutes" so he raced to airport to collect it. It contained frozen food..."
