1 hour late each time

It wasn’t communicated that on the layover, we needed to again have our documents checked so after waiting in long line to board, we were sent back to another documents check line and then back to the long boarding line. It wasn’t a big deal but something to mention. Once on board the crew was phenomenal. Very friendly and constantly working and serving. I don’t think they got a moments rest during the 10+ hour flight. Best service on a flight in years….hands down above & beyond Delta airlines where I have my miles awards membership. Very pleased with Swiss Air.

Swiss was better than United flight I take to Newark to Mumbai

Swiss shouldn't operate another second until they have their customer service figured out. You can't reach anyone at the company. 0 accommodations for you in case you need to make changes.

Hi. You canceled my trip and now you are asking me for review? Check my trip record and you will have my review. Call your customer service and you will have the answer. This was the worst experience in my life. Sorry for you.

Pros: "Nothing. I was sold a ticket for 709 dollars and wasn’t told I couldn’t get on until showing up to the gate. Therefore I had to spend 1000 more dollars to book another ticket because budget air wouldn’t change or refund the flight."
Cons: "Not selling a ticket with a layover where someone with a US passport cannot travel through at the moment. Be more forthcoming."

Pros: "Crew were very nice and accommodating. Chocolate always appreciated!"

Cons: "Such a quick flight, everything was appropriate for that. Unsure exactly what would make it better"

Pros: "i ordered and paid for business class but the return flight from israel had no business class Had a miserable flighIshould be refunded"
Pros: "On time arrival"

Cons: "Leg room is on the tighter side!"
Cons: "The headset outlet is still the old one, so you can't use your own ."
Pros: "I hope this carrier grows by leaps and bounds. The plane was new & clean, the pilots executed flawless takeoff & landing, the flight attendants were friendly to a fault, the plane left on time & arrived early. Round trip Orlando-Venice was $980 round trip. The only niggling detail was the somewhat limited selection of movies."

Pros: "I was fed food and drinks varios times during the flight and that makes me happy! I never went hungry!"

Pros: "Thank you for the sandwich!"

Pros: "Very pleasant and friendly attendants. Food good, you'll never feel hungry! Love the chocolates!"
Pros: "Seat assignment had taken into account that we had a 45 minute window to our connecting flight. Everyone very pleasant and helpful. Fantastic help to escort us to our connecting flight so we did not miss it! Did not make us feel rushed even though time was short!"
Cons: "All good!"
Pros: "A+."
Pros: "The crew on board was kind and polite when they had to deliver bad news"
Cons: "2 hour delay due to a morning delay at Barcelona, although that seemed odd. The delay was known early that morning. Flight from Barcelona to Zurich doesn't take long. Seems they could have rerouted, or at least sent an email or some notification. Also, the boarding staff at Zurich is rude and random about whom they let onboard with larger luggage or not. They held some people but not others. Middle seats have metal polls, making legroom awkward."
Pros: "Food was great."
Cons: "No USB. Entertainment was so-so."
Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "Terrible seats :-("
Cons: "Was asked to give up my aisle seat (D 40) seat om a 13 hour flight for a less comfortable one (F). Put on the spot to give up my seat for a couple with a 6 month old infant due to the fact that the attachable bassinet had to be in front of the D seat. Neither the parent or myself felt very good about my displacement."
Pros: "Its on time"
Cons: "They trick u, from one way the take ur carry on when u come back they say u have to pay for it. The person that were giving me boarding pass she was very mean she asked a guy the guy was tottaly stupid he was acting like he is the owner of swiss airline"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My luggage being lost both from Toronto to Zurich and from Zurich to Toronto. Air Canada took nearly 4 days to get my baggage to me in Toronto, as a result of which I was unable to attend a funeral in Chicago. I was lied to over and over by air Canada. The entire experience was horrible."
Pros: "The food"
Pros: "The crew was excellent."
Cons: "The seats are too close to each other. \"
Cons: "Would have been 5 stars overall if not for two hours of a child kicking me seat and occasionally poking my arm."
Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "My flight was pleasant"
Cons: "There is no question about check-in?? My ticket, booked through Kayak, did not state that no baggage is included. The Swiss air just said I should have picked it up from the booking and forced me to pay Euro 30, which I will claim back from Kayak. This is gross misrepresentation and on the same ticket flying a luggage was included."
Cons: "We have bought our seats, but in the airport it was found that our seats were assigned to somebody else and nothing could be done to give them back to us"
Cons: "Boarding was awful. It was not claear where the line is for the business class and for the econom class."

Cancelled stranding 29-39 people instead of waiting twenty minutes.

Lost both flight’s because the flight got delayed

Better options for food, friendlier staff and better inflight entertainment

Crew was rude, flight got delayed almost 5 hrs, no communication to passenger.

Pros: "Seat was not super comfortable."
Cons: "More space on economy for long flights."
Pros: "Flight landed on time"
Cons: "Gate was constantly changed with no audible notification at the gate and boarding process was mayhem"
Cons: "Boarding"
Cons: "Lufthansa’s needs to get their staffing act together. It took 1 1/4 hrs to check in due to insufficient staff & then once on board the flight it was announced there was no food available due to staffing shortages"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I was sick so couldn’t fly, spoke to customer care and they refused to let me change my flight"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable and cool."
Cons: "Everything else"
Cons: "My only suggestion would be to include instructions on how to control the entertainment center and find things such as the headphones in the armrest."
Cons: "Great Airlines, accommodating"
Pros: "The problem was with the booking, cancelled flights- under stable- but nobody willing to make it right. Flights still screwed up"
Cons: "Give some customer service to your paying customers. Don't make a bad situation worse. Practice a can do attitude. Very disappointed in customer service. Not the flight itself."
Cons: "The only thing that was iffy were the movies Most were not recent But I did watch Bohemian Rhapsody Excellent"
Pros: "The flight was adequate."
Cons: "Sandwich was extremely unappetising and there were no hot drinks. The worst thing was that in transiting from the SAA flight to the Lufthansa flight we were obliged to go through security which seems unnecessary. The security staff were awful. Bullying, rude and totally unsympathetic to the fact that having brought water from the first plane to the second plane we had to either drink it or throw it away. One guy in particular, a tall greying man evoked the worst stereotypes of brutal secret policemen. Perhaps he formerly worked for Stasi or he was having testosterone problems. Totally unacceptable behaviour."
Pros: "Crew were very good and helpful. Efficient and very helpful."
Cons: "It looks like Lufthansa has decided to make business class more like "Premium Economy" with lie flat seats. 1) Food was very average with very little selection. 2) Dessert was a joke - other airlines have ice cream sundaes 3) NO HANDICAP BATHROOM. Must be illegal. FAA require Disability access by Disabilities Act. 4) Amenities kit - worst I have seen in all the airlines I have traveled. 5) Snack bar - No selection, just small chocolate, water and orange juice. Even economy planes like Jet Blue have better selection. German people are getting used to mediocrity and I am surprised. World class airline with cheap customer side product. Don't cut costs on things that customers see, touch and eat. To add to that, my mother in law is handicapped. When transferring her to the gate, they took her in a bus and did not strap the wheel chairs next to her chair. All of them fell on her - YES! THEY ALL FELL FROM A HEIGHT ON A HANDICAPPED PERSON WHO HAS ARTHRITIS AND IN PAIN ALL THE TIME. Damaged her knee joints. This is why we travel business class - and they hurt her more than if we took her our selves."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that the United flight I came in on was over a MILE of corridors away from the outgoing flight."
Pros: "On board crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Muslim meal does not mean all Muslims eat curry. It’s rediculous that we cant have a decent English breakfast instead you get curry or some form of curry for breakfast, lunch and supper. Your so called Muslim meals are not suitable for kids!! There is no such thing as a Muslim meal either. It’s simply called Halal otherwise then everyone else’s meals should be called Christian or Jewish meals etc. Also I requested help with transfer to my last flight which was horrendous because I’m one adult with 4 kids ages 1 to 11 and my eldest has sever learning disability. I nearly missed my flight because our flight landed late and I was struggling to keep my kids safe and together while running for the next flight. Somone should have been there to help with transfer."
Cons: "Tras pasar por la máquina con la tarjeta de embarque una azafata de tierra dijo que no podía pasar alegando que mi maleta de mano espesaba demasiado sin fijarse que ya había sido pesado con etiqueta de ‘cabin baggage por la aerolínea. Luego al preguntar si estaba asegurado dijo que sí pero no sabía por cuanto. Los compartimentos encima de mi asiento no estaban llenos. El avión aterrizó tarde. Las azafatas de vuelo profesionales."
Cons: "Apparently the rude gate agent decided to randomly pull people out of the mass gaggle for boarding and check carryons she seemed to believe we’re too heavy or big, while letting other bigger ones and heavier ones stating safety concerns. The bin has a total weigh limit, not the individual bag. Lufthansa needs to educate its employees."
Pros: "I arrived at my destination completely unstressed."
Cons: "Security checks, but this is unavoidable"
Pros: "Clean aircraft, very friendly crew, good food, overall great trip."
Pros: "cabin crew were all very nice!"
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "I had to wait in line for over an hour to get a ticket to replace the one I missed because of how late the first flight was. As with all my Lufthansa experiences, it was frustratingly slow"
Pros: "loved the candy given to us when we left the plane"
Cons: "Too many announcements"
Pros: "Boarding was fast. Crew was good. Comfort level was good."
Cons: "The requested meal was not delivered. However, the crew bring it from the extra they had with other classes."
Cons: "Our flight from Tel Aviv on Lufthansa was 20 minutes late. We only had 40 minutes for our connection in Frankfort but made it to the gate 5 minutes early. The gate was closed 10 minutes early and they would not let us on. There were 17 of us, 10 of which were children. They would not let us on BUT we’re able to spend 30 extra minutes at the gate, not on the tarmac, to remove all of our luggge off the plane. It would of taken them less than 10 minutes to let us in the flight. I don’t even know what to say about the complete lack of any competence."
Pros: "Firstly, the food was great!"
Pros: "Very polite and patient staff. They are getting professional. The food is great for airline food. Very comfortable. But the movie touch screens need improvement."
Cons: "Touch screens need improvement."
Pros: "There was nothing I liked. The walk was too long at Frankfurt"
Cons: "My granddaughter of 3 years had painful ear block and the crew was so unfriendly about it unlike other airlines that try to offer remedies."
Pros: "Boarding was fast"
Cons: "I had to pay extra because I didn't know that Lufthansa only allows one piece of luggage for international passengers, unlike most of their competition. Cost me $375 extra!!!"
Pros: "Crew members are very friendly."
Pros: "We left an hour late. Pilot made up most of the time in the air."
Cons: "United app didn't work. No entertainment. Seats so close, you couldn't read because distance too short. Could have heated the breakfast sandwich. Just threw it out cold and late."
Pros: "I was upgraded after all the pressure from thehurrricane this was the icing on the cake"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Entertainment system wasn't working. 11 hour flight. Boring. No seat change available. No reading light, as light controlled by entertainment system. Seats in front of toilet cluster lit up every time door was opened. Crew were slow to react. Wasn't a priority. Ruined the excellent first leg of had from Philadelphia to Frankfurt. Do they run inferior planes to South Africa compared to USA?"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "More movie choices. The food choices this time we're not as good."
Pros: "By far the best flying experience in a long time..."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and I liked that they always kept us hydrated with drinks. Before I even left on the trip I called the airlines several time with so many questions and the staff that I talked to each time were so friendly and helpful with all the questions that I had."
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like is that the boarding process was different than what I was used to. I usually board by zones and this time it was more of a everyone got up at the same time and everyone rushed to the front of the lines and some people would push me out of the way to get in front. ( even though we all had assigned seating) Second thing was that I had asked for a wheelchair for my mom and I had seen one waiting outside and was about to walk up to it but another person was limping up to it and put her stuff down on it so I didn't know if it was for my mom or her. I didn't have the heart to go up and make her move if the wheelchair was for my mom so we ended up walking the whole way to customs. I felt bad for my mom afterwards because her knees ended up hurting by the time we got to customs. I would suggest holding up signs of individual names for who the wheelchair is for. Other than that everything was great"
Cons: "Staff at the gate were rude"
Pros: "Staff"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "excellent dinner selection movies and on screen entertainment were great"
Cons: "2 hour wait on tarmac in Dulles for weather no one in the crew could tell us where our connecting gait was or whether we would have enough time to make it"
Pros: "All the staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Terrible leg room."
Pros: "I have always wanted to travel with Lufthansa and will do so in future too. For my wife it was her first and she loved it."
Pros: "Food and overall service"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Everything!"
Cons: "Nothing!"
Cons: "The fine print on the flight pass-- didn't notice that my request for flight change did not go through. Am stuck in the airport!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Didn't take it"
Pros: "The price for a direct flight was reasonable"
Cons: "Wifi wasn't working and movie selection poor. No individual screens especially for a 10 hr flight. Staff were not that friendly either. Old plane and small seats. I would rather pay more for a more comfortable flight."

The actual flight was ok. But was a mess before departing AMS. My previous flight was late, so missed my connection in AMS. Then I spent over two hours getting things settled to get another flight. I was unable to complete my request online, and no one at KLM in AMS wanted to help. They kept giving me the run-around until I finally convinced them K was stuck without their personal help. It added a lot of stress (and about 5 more hours of transit time) to my overall journey.

To charge $39 for a list and found help ticket is extortion—will they find my item for that price?

Pros: "Nice flight ...was comfortable travel ...good food.Thanks"
Cons: "No such things"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and there was enough room for hand baggage. I slept during the flight so do not have opinion on entertainment."
Cons: "Not able to charge my digital devices. When serving beverages and food, the same flight attendant missed me a few times. That was annoying but other attendants were very nice."
Pros: "Good entertainment options. Nice flight attendants"
Cons: "It would be helpful for short people to be able to adjust the head rest lower on the seat. More recent released movies would be helpful. More leg room. Not charging more money to choose seats."
Pros: "kLM staff was great."
Pros: "The cabin crew was so kind, efficient, and attentive. All meals and snacks were delicious."
Pros: "We were fed a nice pasta meal and offered drinks twice. They also gave a muffin for desert. The flight attendants were very nice and attentive with cheerful smiles. I wish every airline had service this good!"
Pros: "Left ontime and service was excellent."
Pros: "Arrived Early!"
Cons: "Left Late :-)"
Pros: "Sandwich was incredibly tasty (although not much filling)"
Cons: "2 hours on the tarmac delayed with no explanation. Uncomfortable seats, no leg room. Poor management of seating, there was enough empty seats to have groups together but they were split up. Drinks served from a communal bottle in a polystyrene cup."
Pros: "Good information and helpfil boarding."
Cons: "Has to wait in confined area fir nearly 2 hrs before boarding. No restroom or refreshments within that area."
Pros: "Bording was good and general flight ok"
Cons: "This airplane must be the oldest in the fleet. No USB, no charging, no touchscreen technology, no plugs, no bluetooth."
Pros: "Lovely staff, good food, great movies."
Pros: "Only thing we liked was the fact that we were able to get onto our flight at all..."
Cons: "Was not informed that checking in online is the only way to secure a seat. So, regardless of whether you book your tickets 3 months in advance or the day before, you're not actually guaranteed a seat unless you check in online. We weren't told this until we were at the airport and checked in there that we might not be able to get our pre-booked in advance flight because of over-booking from KLM. We then had to wait and see if there were seats available when boarding. Luckily, there were, but we were not sat together. Not the greatest start to our first holiday together as a couple. We were told that if there weren't seats available, they'd pay for us to get to another airport to fly out, which would have meant a huge delay on the only time off we'd get together this year and have to rearrange our pre-booked and pre-paid living arrangements for the week. All because there wasn't a lot of emphasis on the need to check in online before hand. You'd think if someone checked in at the airport, that would be more of a guarantee that they'd be flying with you that day, but apparently not. Definitely not impressed or happy with this part of the KLM experience. This is the only company that we've had this problem with, they should make it clearer that it is essential to check in online."
Pros: "Flight was lovely, crew were friendly and very helpful and food was delicious!! We travelled with assistance for mum and it was excellent and we were kept updated all through the flight."
Pros: "Clean airplane, friendly crew, no rush, nice snacks for a short one hour flight. Just generally a positive experience."
Pros: "Excellent experience with the cabin crew."
Cons: "Seats on the 777 were too narrow. This 777 had a 3-4-3 seating arraignment, it would have been better with a 3-3-3, similar to a 787 configuration. With the current layout, even with an aisle seat, I was sitting in the aisle. And I am not a large person! The flight was full, so use the 787 and two daily non-stops. For a twelve hour flight, the food was only Okay, could have been better and with a better selection. Meal timing was poor."
Pros: "The flight attendants could not do enough for you."
Cons: "Business class was pretty empty but again I was not allowed to change my seat selection online. Pathetic check-in."
Pros: "Wider seat than most business class"
Cons: "Row 6 in business is after the first 5 rows and Galley and restroom. Very awkward"
Pros: "Boarding/unboarding"
Cons: "Didn't allow my carry on. Said too big. Same bag was on earlier connecting flight on much smaller plane. Also on flight on Southwest week prior. But larger intercontinental flight wouldn't allow it."
Cons: "Our flight was canceled from Amsterdam to Bordeaux and did not receive any direction and had to find alternate flights for ourselves with the personal expense of using our own cell phones. Then our luggage lost for 3 days. Not happy! We ended up flying from Toronto to Paris then to Bordeaux. Lost my upgrade money for seats. Now have to deal with KLM for refund!"
Pros: "The crew were just amazing, such lovely male stewards! They were helpful and friendly and generally wonderful."
Cons: "The entertainment was quite dated and didn't have new movies etc"
Pros: "Staff superb. They even surprised us with an exit row and a gift for my partners birthday! Amazing. Samantha and Dennis also took time to come and personally wish him a happy birthday. A lovely touch. This airline runs like clockwork. They are just great. The sandwich and stoop waffle are nice too."
Cons: "There is a bus to the plane, so that takes a bit of extra time but they are very well organized."
Pros: "Very efficient boarding, fast and professional but warm and friendly. The plane was very clean and quite spacious for a two by two configuration. On time departure and landing and smoothed processing at the other end."
Cons: "Nothing to improve"
Pros: "delayed"
Pros: "The flight crew were kind, polite, and attentive."
Cons: "Bussing to the plane was a bit odd, but the crew remained organized in doing so. When we arrived to the plane, they had both entrances open so that those sitting near the rear of the plane would enter from the back. Plane was a little chilly, but I have come to expect that one most flights."
Pros: "Leg room. Smiles of the cabin crew."
Cons: "Not enough selection of Electronic Dance Music. Lol!"

Good

The crew was very friendly. The check-in to boarding process was onerous and unclear. I understand that part of the process is not the airline's responsibility but they can lobby to streamline the process

Pros: "Flight was smooth and ontime"
Pros: "Nothing, the flight was delayed, the plane too small for passengers to store their carry-on luggage, the ground staff did not upload all the luggage and left some behind in Nairobi on the tarmac, the crew lied about the luggage being uploaded. Terrible experience! Kenya Airways is becoming worst and worst."
Cons: "Everything, the flight was delayed, the plane too small for passengers to store their carry-on luggage, the ground staff did not upload all the luggage and left some behind in Nairobi on the tarmac, the crew lied about the luggage being uploaded. Terrible experience! Kenya Airways is becoming worst and worst."
Pros: "Same things as mentioned for the NBO-EBB leg"
Cons: "Food"
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."
Pros: "Nothing - we were stuck at the airport for over 10 hours due to a strike. Missed all connecting flights. They didn’t even offer accommodation or reimbursement on air tickets for our next destination."
Cons: "I really do not care. I am never flying with Kenya airways again."
Cons: "Not many movies to chose from."
Pros: "Everything was Amazing. This is one of the best Airline out there and they need more recognition."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "All is well."

Pros: "Easy going flight with friendly and hospitable crew"
Cons: "Plane was quite dirty inside and out"
Cons: "I find your company canceled my ticket from Kenya to Cairo for all my 7 tickets"
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"
Cons: "As our first flight was late, we missed our connecting flight in Nairobi. They had us wait for nearly 2 hours to finally get our VISA and take us to a hotel to wait for the next flight. However, after waiting for 2 hours (with a 1-year old child), they took us to a hotel which didn't have any room"
Pros: "Both segmrnts left on time. The on- flight crew were pleasant. The 787 on first flight comfortable in biz class for a nap. Food service well carried out by crew."
Cons: "The 737 on second flight ....the long overnight one... Was very uncomfortable in biz class. On arrival in Nairobi...the hub city...there was no staff. A.c. no working or escalator in airport. Biz line for security not open. Food below average. No breakfast as we one meal."
Pros: "I liked their service and more so, there orange juice"
Cons: "Since this was a short flight , I don’t have much comment."
Pros: "Food and entertainment was good"

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."
Cons: "My flights were changed a lot the week before my flight even though I had booked months ahead."

Pros: "Only the pilot take off and landing was owesome.. the other services were very poor.. eg I hated it when all our largages were left behind"
Cons: "pilot take off and landing.."
Pros: "after 5 hours of waiting when there was no boarding started at boarding gate we came to know that flight is dealyed by 7 more hours. They provided hotel but it took 3 hours for us to clear immigration and reached hotel and after 1 hours they came to pick us back. there was no support from airlines staff and we were at won. Hotel was just waste because we just use for one hour in 12 hours delay."
Pros: "Well, I missed it due to multiple delays out of Nairobi -- so not much good to say."
Cons: "Delayed. Staff in Nairobi swore up and down that I'd be able to take the bottle I bought in duty free onto my connecting flight in Mumbai, but it was confiscated at customs -- so thanks a lot."

Cons: "The food was mediocre and no choice for entertainment, common movie or 2 low quality music channels"
Cons: "Bad attitude by the crew"
Pros: "The flight arrived early to Bangkok"

Pros: "Late arrival Nairobi. missed flight"
Cons: "Late arrival Nairobi. missed flight"
Pros: "Food. The pilot spent some time flying over the Victoria falls"
Cons: "Dirty bathroom"
Cons: "Lack of drink options, no diet cola?! Poor entertainment options"
Pros: "Food and service"
Cons: "Time to update, renovate and scale up the fleet flying Africa. Impossible to sleep in economy."
Cons: "With the exception of one male flight attendant who was friendly and professional, the Kenya airways flight attendants were surly, invompetent and unprofessional. One yelled at us for asking if we could get a vegetarian meal (on the advice of another Kenya airways flight attendant). Another only bothered to give water to the first 2/3 of the plane and then for some unknown reason simply stopped passing out water. All three of the Kenya airways fights were late but no one said so or why. I would avoid this airline at all costs."
Pros: "Friendly staff Good food"
Cons: "The movies were not working"
Cons: "it was okay"
Cons: "Delays"
Pros: "Good save for the delay."
Pros: "Ground check-in, onboard staff, plane comfort were all fine and what normally happens. Nice leather seats and space on Embraer plane."
Cons: "At check-in we were told the departure time was an hour late - when I arrived at 2:00am. As I only had 1 hour and 55 minutes in Nairobi before flight to Johannesburg, I was a bit concerned and had to rush from plane to departure gate. Pilot said flight was late due to " plane arriving late", which I think meant - it isn't our fault."
Pros: "That we eventually left"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed because the airport shut down. When the airport opened again. They gave us a departure time 4 hours after our original departure time (1:20 am). 1:20 came and went without any more communication or information. 1:40 am arrived and someone from KQ showed up at our gate and said they do not have any additional information. We said there are children here and hungry, tired, frustrated people. We suggested they distribute waters or snacks, but that never happened. They just kept telling us they didnt know when the flight would take off (or if it would) nor when they would have any additional information. An hour later they made one announcement over the speaker at our gate that our flight was boarding at another gate. However, many people had fallen asleep on the floor as I had and I would have missed it if one of my fellow passengers hadnt woken me up to say that we were boarding. We then sat on the tarmac a while longer for reasons that were not explained and finally landed 7 hours later than scheduled. Very little effort was put into communicating to us, making our wait comfortable nor apologizing for the inconvenience. It was a very frustrating experience."
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"
Cons: "The entire experience with Kenya air was terrible, from the very poor customer service and knowledge and honesty of the staff, to the flight itself."
Pros: "Crew was nice, seats were roomy"
Cons: "Delayed and missed my connecting flight. Spoke to some locals and they said this is the norm for Kenya."
