Airline reviews

Pros: "The crew was mazing and the seats are so comfortable."
Cons: "To me everything was excellent from the captain to the flight attendants i was impressed i have been to all domestic flights but Airlink is the best and after yesterday flight i decided that Airlink is the one for me onwards. The only thing i can suggest is the points program then the sky will be the limit for you. Keep up the good work guys BIG UP."

Pros: "Flight was on time and crew was great"

Cons: "good short flight"

Pros: "Time keeping, plane was well sized and okay"
Cons: "Didn’t get a single sensible meal!"

Pros: "Attendant was professional"
Cons: "It was okay"

Pros: "Everything was good!"
Cons: "For a short flight on a small aircraft nothing could have been better."

Pros: "It's a shorter flight so, no IFE. The front row of the business section was nice. I'm glad that reserving those seats worked out for this flight, although it didn't on all the other flights."

Cons: "No entertainment available, and the BUQ departure lounge could be improved"

Pros: "flight was on time food and drink"

Pros: "Tayla the stewardess was very sweet!"
Cons: "Nothing. It’s a small plane!"

Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Luggage was riffled through and item stolen"

Cons: "Delayed flight with close connecting flight and none of the flight or ground crew were able to communicate with the connecting flight gate agents. No priority for deplaning and tarmac shuttle was given to those with close connecting flight. Had to sprint through airport and barely made connection."

Pros: "Amazing crew, wonderful short flight and delicious snack. Could not be any better."
Cons: "Just continue the wonderful service."

Pros: "Everything was good"

Pros: "Seats were noticeably more spacious than comparable airlines. Good entertainment system and selection of films."
Cons: "Location of plug sockets, very difficult to use."

Cons: "The staff at Vic Falls airport tried to charge me several hundred dollars for extra bag fees. The fee kept changing depending on who I was speaking with and when I agreed to pay with my AMEX they said they did not take AMEX so they eventually waived the fee. This was only done after showing the manager a printed copy of my booking which listed that passengers are allowed 2 checked bags each. This was all done in the office of the South African Airways who I assume was managing the Airlink flight."

Pros: "It was good just the way it is."
Cons: "Why put cheese on the cross bun not good at all."

Pros: "Boarding was on time, and flight went smoothly. Loved the timing, giving me the whole day to explore the area and move on to the National Parks in the area. Breakfast at Uppington Airport is the best!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Flight was on time. Efficient crew"

Pros: "Airport check in went quickly and smoothly! Waiting lounge was excellent!"
Cons: "Nothing to report."

Cons: "Lazy agent said we were too late but bags not booked through on connection which helped cause delay"

Pros: "Economy seats are comfortable"
Cons: "The entertainment system works very poorly, it need to be upgraded! The quality of the image is very poor, the touchscreen does not respond easily and the stream is often interrupted by clips of ither movies or programs. This is unacceptable for a 14+ hours-long journey!"

Pros: "We were on a small cramped plane. The food was horrible."
Cons: "Rude employees at the counter in the airport."

Pros: "The crew were great."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 2 hours. We barely made our connection flight in Johannesburg, which resulted in us having to run through the airport. We did not have time to get dinner."

Cons: "With over 1.5 hrs to check in, guards allowed others to cut in front and my son was told no problem, he would not miss his flight. He did miss his flight and couldn’t apply his ticket to another flight. Had to pay in full to buy another ticket for a flight 5.5 hrs later. Not good!!"

Pros: "Easy process to get to Joberg. Flight was on time and comfortable."
Cons: "Similar to some other reviewers we had to completely exit the terminal at JNB and then check in for our international flight sequence on Qatar, this was easy but caused a little anxiety, especially after learning that the total checked baggage for one person on the air link is 30kgs (66lbs) which is less than standard international weights. We had to pay extra for the “overweight” bags but the cost was reasonable. I would use the airline again."

Pros: "Quick cool spacious"
Cons: "They left us in a hot hot bus for a long time at terminal and on the run way."

Pros: "The plane from Antanarivo as on time - quite an accomplishment for Madagascar!"

Pros: "Stewardess was very professional, spoke clearly, was very helpful. On time and affordable rates!"

Cons: "The flights were not operated by South African Airways, so when we arrived to Johannesburg we had to take our luggage and register it again and make a second check-in. Because both flights were operated by airlines different from South African Airways we were not able to accumulate our One World miles."

Cons: "Spraying a very potent chemical in an already crowded small plane that send people home sick is not the best way to treat passengers. We do recognize there is probably a reason for doing it. Has the airline consider the impact on those with respiratory issue? Some passenger could not stop coughing until their final destination. Hope they find a better way."

Pros: "Everything was good - timely, service, check in, etc."

Pros: "The flight attendant was really friendly and accommodating. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Can add a few more options for snacks. The chips and candy are pretty crappy."

Pros: "Left inn time and arrived a bit early only 12 14 passengers in a 36 pAX plane..."
Cons: "Small Cramped seats No power plugs...average food"

Pros: "Seats wider (or seemed to be so) than most economy flights. Flight crew courteous."
Cons: "Have lived in Madagascar for almost two decades and have never seen such disorganized boarding. No signage, staff all the same uniforms (thus no visual clues), no gate noted on boarding pass. Very frustrating. Two Airlink flights were leaving at the same time due to a delay for one flight, so better communication needed. Plane toilet disgusting and would not flush."

Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "I do not understand why the staff wait for all passengers to be on board and close the door to spray this unbreathable air spray. I was suffocating during a few minutes and coughed during the whole flight. My throat still hurts. The cheese sandwich was terrible."

Pros: "Efficient on time no hassle"

Cons: "Cold food. SAA used to serve hot meals. What happened to that?"

Pros: "short, easy flight"

Cons: "Lost baggage. Sent to Jouburg instead. Second day at Cape Grace in dirty safari clothes. Still no bags."

Pros: "Pilot and Stewardess were good and airport was nice. I appreciated the flights from Cape Town to Skukuza and from Skukuza to Johanesberg."
Cons: "Airport crew not able to answer questions outside of their scope of responsibility. I asked a question several times and reply was "good afternoon". finally another person helped and directed me to another part of the airport where I asked the same question and received blank faces until supervisor showed up."

Pros: "I enjoyed looking out the window as we flew. Interesting countryside compared to what we have where I live in the U.S."
Cons: "Maun airport is small but it gets the job done. The people at the SAA counter were not well versed with checking bags to your final destination when you continued on from Johannesburg."

Pros: "South African Airlines is like flying years ago when you were given respect and special treatment. It's my favorite airline, by far. Actually, it's the only airline I like to fly. I've flown Delta, Lufthansa, KLM and United to South Africa - big mistake. SAA is what I wish all other airlines are. They are first rate."

Pros: "Pleasant experience. Gate personnel and crew were friendly and helpful; plane and seating were comfortable."
Cons: "No flight information signage at gate, and gate boarding public announcements were distorted. Besides being distorted, it was hard to understand the 'English' translated announcement."

Cons: "Delayed flight due to airplane malfunction and caused late arrival and could not make our connecting flight. Had to argue for support to stay in Johannesburg due to the inconvenience"

Pros: "Stewardess was very professional, spoke clearly, was very helpful. On time and affordable rates!"

Cons: "THe check in lady on the flight from Cape Town, was surly, rude, unhelpful, arrogant...just awful"

Pros: "Quick check in"
Cons: "Quants needs to upgrade they are falling behind in th bussness class game quiet badly This is my third trip in 4 years from Sydney to JHB and the service, seating etc is the same Tiered plans tiered overall"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "People were not the friendly except for the stewardess"

Pros: "Efficient, pleasant experience. Coming from the US, it was unusual to have complimentary meal and alcoholic beverages on a short domestic flight."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit confusing and disorganized. I think better communication of procedures would've helped."

Pros: "The warm towel given for the hands and face at the beiginning was a nice surprise treat. Great also that blankets and headphones were provided."
Cons: "More food variety as some items ran out as they got to the back of the plane"

Cons: "Better variety of latest movies,"

Pros: "The crew amazing"
Cons: "I was traveling with a child and an infant. Would have been given a priority. We were in the queue waiting."

Pros: "Seats super comfortable"
Cons: "Real food and not just snack"

Cons: "Not many movies to chose from."

Cons: "More legroom, seats with more cushion and recline, better food!"

Pros: "Service and flight itself"
Cons: "Changing the system to be repaired whenever someone needs to change the phone let be available especially to those who are traveling to other countries and they're new there and they need to do a calling for connection to people who are going to take them to different destinations."

Pros: "Easy going flight with friendly and hospitable crew"
Cons: "Plane was quite dirty inside and out"

Pros: "Good service with friendly crew"
Cons: "Toilets clean but a bit worn out. Windows were very dirty inside and out."

Pros: "The crew was great, and greeted passengers with a smile."

Cons: "Over 5hrs flight and no entertainment as the screens were not working and very boring. Looks like the flight needs real servicing and upgrade for that long haul"

Cons: "Late departure led to missed connections, but Kenya Airways did not provide much assistance with this. No-one on hand to upon disembarkation to help affected passengers. I just managed to get my onward flight, but my baggage did not make it, so I am awaiting that."

Pros: "yes"
Cons: "not really"

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: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "No complaints."

Pros: "Airline and service"
Cons: "Asked for a window or aisle seat and wasnt given"

Pros: "This was a good flight; enjoyed everything"
Cons: "My only disappointment was that I hoped to buy Amarula on the flight, but apparently they were out of stock."

Pros: "staff crew on the plane were very nice and accommodating"
Cons: "food portions are too small and movies selections. most movies were very old"

Pros: "Everything was great about my Kenyan Airways flight. Crew was super friendly and helpful."

Pros: "The planes are clean, the attendants friendly but formal."
Cons: "The food selections was basic - the entertainment selection was mediocre"

Pros: "Comfortable seats, smooth flight, good service on board"
Cons: "Did not care for insect spraying, limited entertainment / movie choices."

Pros: "Flight was on time. Service was good."
Cons: "Luggage did not arrive. Many passengers who came from Lilongwe to Nampula did not get luggage. There was no ground staff to follow up on the issue."

Pros: "Crew was fast and friendly. Flight was on time."
Cons: "A 5 hour 40 minute flight across Africa with no electronic charging ports is not acceptable. The plane was old and uncomfortable. Water cups have gotten so small that I was also dehydrated by the end of the flight. What ever happened to receiving a bottle of water?"

Pros: "Entertainment system wasn't bad."
Cons: "Paid $200 extra for a direct flight and got bumped onto a layover flight. No explanation, no refund and what should have taken 2 hours, took 10."

Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "There was no food for vegetarian."

Pros: "Food was not bad at all. Nice selction of indie African films."
Cons: "Seat couldnt recline. crew didnt answer to call. somewhat chaotic.not enough time between meal and coffee. Blanket was scant. No butter with breadroll"

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "None"

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."

Pros: "They no take care of my bag"

Pros: "The nice landing."
Cons: "Food which was the same as previous flight. We, at back, were told there was only the vegetarian option left for breakfast. We all declined. Later we were brought non-vegetarian food ie had a 'poached egg' on it. This was marginally better. Also, I couldn't use 'entertainment' as connection in arm rest bad. Occasionally, on testing, it worked briefly."

Pros: "Everything went as it should."
Cons: "The AC in the plane was a little bit to cold"

Cons: "Poor Service. Did not care attitude."

Pros: "Late arrival Nairobi. missed flight"
Cons: "Late arrival Nairobi. missed flight"

Pros: "Overall it was fine. However there were some downsides..."
Cons: "One of our bags didn't make it. Also, the plane left late for some reason. We weren't sure why they didn't start letting us board sooner. Finally, the airport in Nairobi is dangerous when early morning planes arrive. Arriving passengers who are in transit are ushered down an escalator where they are pushed into one another because of a security line backup...yet the escalator just keeps bringing more people. This happened to us in Nairobi in the early morning of July 26 and again in the early morning of August 2. I feared someone would be trampled or hurt."

Pros: "It was fine."

Pros: "Generous carry on limit, good prices, complimentary food on flights, on time departures, on demand entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding lines were a bit chaotic."

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: "Everything"

Cons: "Lack of drink options, no diet cola?! Poor entertainment options"

Pros: "The flight worked."
Cons: "Looking for my bags for a week."

Pros: "5 star service"

Cons: "The food was so-so. The flight was delayed. The crew was friendly, but nothing outstanding."

Cons: "Delays"

Pros: "Business passengers still served snacks even with such a short flight. Great view of Mount Kilimanjaro"

Pros: "Overall very nice"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Poor organization regarding flight cancellation - I was stuck in the CDG airport all day long to find out more information and get a hotel voucher. And then next morning, there was no clear announcement regarding a rescheduled flight; the flight was delayed AGAIN. This trip caused so much problem in my work."

Cons: "Not much space between rows,everybody reclined their seat, you could barley move"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "That the flight time was changed from 8am to 10am and we were not informed until check-in time. Then the flight was changed from 10 to midday, but we were only told during boarding and told to go for breakfast at some restaurant without getting directions. On arriving at the restaurant, we were made to sit in a waiting area for over 30 mins then later told to move to another restaurant, without directions. After going through the gate to board for the midday flight and waiting over an hour, we were informed that we were to fly at 4:15pm! The flight was uncomfortable with seats that had absolutely no leg room and non reclining seats"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They kicked me off my flight and didn't even compensate me for no availability of seats. I was stranded for 48 hours with food, water, money or wifi!!!!!"
