Pros: "Great crew! Excellent business class suite"

Pros: "Food is delicious"
Cons: "Paid WIFI this time was horrible for the half of the trip WIFI don’t work"

Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Perfect"

Cons: "They do not understand the word priority at Doha airport. Business class passengers boarded last."

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "We were told to board, but then kept in another area close on 1 hour before we could get on the plane and this area had no bathroom facilities. The spread of seating on the plane made no sense with many open seats but also many squashed rows of people. The crew was visibly tired and irritated, they also ran out of a few catering items. It seemed as if last minute, a few different flights were combined into this one which lowered the quality."

Pros: "Food and leg room"
Cons: "All was fine"

Cons: "The vegetarian option for breakfast was a stale waffle with apple compote. Inedible."

Pros: "Food selection. However, the snacks need to be readily available on long flights."
Cons: "Entertainment is lacking behind other international carriers"

Pros: "The entertainment was excellent, the seats very confortable"
Cons: "Some of the crew members where “to green”, perhaps a bit more of experience is needed."

Pros: "The Crew were excellent, friendly, professional and attentative."
Cons: "We checked in seven and a half hours before this flight as we had just flown from Melbourne Australia to Qatar landing that same day at 0435am in the morning with this flight being delayed from 805 am to 12 noon then to find that we had been allocated the last row right at the toilets. Horrible."

Pros: "Plenty of beverage service and food was very good."
Cons: "The other passengers were often rude and uncivilized. I guess Qatar couldn’t do anything about this."

Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "It seems the major airlines use older aircraft when the destination of the flight is a third world country(or Africa). The seats aren't as comfortable and the entertainment system (screens) are not as good as a Qatar and Europe bound flights."

Pros: "The flights attendants were very helpful and polite. What I enjoyed the most was the level of comfort I had. I was able to sleep for almost the entire flight. That's why it felt like it wasn't even a long flight."
Cons: "We did leave a little late but it was out of the control of the pilots and flights attendants."

Pros: "There was adequate seat room. The device was good."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."

Pros: "Staff was great"

Pros: "Thank you for a very good flight experience both from Philadelphia to Doha and Doha to Johannesburg."
Cons: "The breakfast options could have been better, but I was fed and happy, and the flight attendant was kind enough to bring me green tea when it wasn’t readily available on the cart."

Pros: "Polite crew, food was pretty good."
Cons: "Did not have the duty free item I pre-ordered. I asked the crew 4 times about it, four times because they said that they would check but they never got back to me to tell me that it was out of stock; until I pressed the issue."

Pros: "Very nice"

Pros: "The food and service was wonderful! Easy smooth flight, made 9 hours fly by!"

Pros: "Service, entertainment, crew were all excellent!"
Cons: "Flight length"

Pros: "All the services plus the entire team"

Cons: "Seat to LA was broken"

Cons: "Organization of the boarding"

Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "When the flight is changed by airline for their convenience, they would have given preferential treatment to the passengers involved. We had to bare the cost of food and make us comfortable on our own due to the delay in transit."

Pros: "On time and efficient"
Cons: "Food was mediocre in options and taste. Not the most comfortable flight either. The Manila to Doha leg was much less comfortable than the Doha Philly leg."

Pros: "Thanks for good service"
Cons: "Everything was good service food entertainment"

Pros: "Qatar personal ground services they did the best they could in a difficult environment such as GVA airport. Cabin Crew FABULOUS Quality of space GOOD Food EXCELLENT Looking forward in flying again with QATAR AIRWAYS Thanks Tony Manias"
Cons: "Although for some technical reasons the flight was considerably delayed, there was no action taken either by Qatar Airways or Geneva airport authorities to make the waiting more confortable!! The passengers of economy class and business class were all stacked in the same space (it looked more of a hangar...) Access to this space was only possible by stairs (No elevator - No escalator !!) No drinks offered, not enough chairs to sit and wait......etc The main blame is to put on Geneva Airport Authorities. This airport is a total mess From the moment one arrives at the airport area (access - parking - ..) till the moment of boarding... It should be boycotted by major and quality companies such as Qatar Airways and many others."

Pros: "The crew aboard the flight were kind and thoughtful and definitely oriented toward service."
Cons: "The security process at the gate was really disorderly. Perhaps it is because it is a new and extra step required by the US but it was definitely not efficiently handled."

Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "The friendliness of the staff from check in to arrival!"

Pros: "I freceuntly fly between the US and South Africa and only fly via Qatar Airways, and every experience thus far has been great. The food is good quality, friendly crew and I would recommend it to anyone."
Cons: "The sandwiches are a little dry and movie selection a little limited."

Pros: "Unfortunately..."
Cons: "...as mentioned, I don't have the pleasure of rating this flight because of the boarding delays and missing the flight. Very disappointing."

Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"

Pros: "Service of air stewards very friendly and polite"
Cons: "This goes for Qatarfigjta from harare to Doha and Doha to Washington DC and back. I am not going to give individual report on each one. Food - my daughter could barely eat anything and the vegetarian meals were stone cold most of time. It was hard to eat at Qatar airport because not only is the food terrible (Burger King and bad Asian food) but outrageously expensive. Our media system did not work for one leg. ** way to many ads on your media system. Every time you watch a new TV episode, you have to sit through 5-6 ads for stuff that is not interesting and the same each time. ** plane info on media system keeps reverting to Arabic even when English is indicated as preferred la gauge. We had to place our iPads in checked luggage for flights from harare to USA as we went through Qatar. *** I asked for quiet seats and was given seats near kitchen and toilet even though I booked in hours in advance. One leg had my ten year old daughter and I in different rows even though I checked in 4-5 hours in advance Of flight . ** staff moved my hand luggage without my permission and without informing me - it was stressful trying to find it."

Pros: "Excellent experience overall, the food was decent, the seats were comfortable and had enough space for me at 6ft tall, the staff were very friendly and helpful, entertainment selection was good with plenty of new movies out. I had no problems with my layover. The baggage allowance was great as I had extra luggage from my trip. I'm very happy with their customer service, the day before my first flight I received a phone call from Qatar's customer service saying that due to delays I wouldn't be able to make my connecting flight to Edinburgh so they would like to book me on another flight instead of me having to wait 24 hours in Doha. I was thoroughly impressed with this service."
Cons: "I did not have wifi available from Doha-Johannesburg"

Cons: "Didnt have food My mother has diabetes and she had one meal in her 14 hr flight Unacceptable"

Cons: "horrible customer service at Doha Airport"

Cons: "On the second leg, my first choice option was not available. Instead I was offered what appeared to be a lurid pink yogurt, coupled with fluorescent orange 'juice', together with the Indian vegetarian option. The accompanying 'muffin' appeared to consist of the following ingredients: flour, oil. Suffers from the "African flight's don't matter" syndrome when it comes to level of staff and entertainment. I was expecting better from Qatar - back to Emirates I go!"

Pros: "Great crews, excellent airplanes, wonderful in transit experince."
Cons: "In flight coach meals were average."

Pros: "On time departure, friendly crew. Comfortable seats for economy class, plenty of entertainment options. A pleasant experience"
Cons: "The food was okay. The hot wrap/calzone served first was not very tasteful. The breakfast/brunch was better. Not much to dislike overall."

Pros: "Again on time and effortless boarding made the overall experience a good one."
Cons: "Our suitcase was damaged...still in the process of trying to get it fixed. Hopefully it will be done soon. I will then update this report. Could maybe clean the toilets as it did become a bit messy."

Pros: "Exceptional Service Great Food New Planes Overall excellent"

Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "I thought the flight was fine :)"

Pros: "The service from the crew was amazing"
Cons: "The food was not bad compared to some air lines"

Cons: "Arrival in Johannesburg was a nightmare due to queues at immigration - I nearly missed my connecting flight. This was not the fault of Quatar airlines but needs to be taken up with the authorities at OT Airport in Johannesburg"

Pros: "The staff were welcoming and friendly. Their customer care is second to none. The food is excellent and i ate throughout my flight."
Cons: "The comfort was a bit below my expectations. Sitting on the seats along the isle was uncomfortable as they are closely placed. There is no enough room to move and to lean sideways when one wants to sleep. My tv was not working. The touch screen was not responding. However the friendly flight attendants shifted me to a vacant seat where the tv was working. The movie selection was limited. There were no documentaries about wildlife. Sport was also missing. We also need some news channels like Aljazeera, CNN & BBC so that we keep updated on issues happening throughout the world. This is very important especially to people like me who traveled long distances from South Africa to Los Angeles USA."

Pros: "The service on this flight was not very good. We almost missed our flight whilst waiting for a wheelchair for mother. She had to finally walk to the boarding gate because the wheelchair we had requested did not come."

Pros: "The leg room was good especially for tall passengers. Food was fantastic. The interior lighting of the plane was amazing. The airport is probably one of the best i have seen that a 9-hour layover didn't feel as bad. Very clean and so many things to do."
Cons: "Airconditioning needs a bit of improvement. I had to remove my jacket. It had a point that i was sweating in the middle of the flight. Probably the warmest airplane ride i had."

Pros: "Service from crew was excellent. Food was good. Also enjoyed city tour of Doha during long layover."
Cons: "Crying screaming kids under 2 in our section of the plane...counted 15. There needs to be a dedicated baby section on the plane rather than subjecting every passenger to the crying and screaming of babies for long overseas flights, in our case, for 13 hours!"

"The check-in line was long and people were put in front of me in the line even after I said I had checked in online. It took me an hour to finally get my documents checked and drop my suitcase. It was horrible!"

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: "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: "There was hardly anyone on the flight so I got a row to myself! Also the flight was fast and smooth and landed on time despite boarding about 45 minutes late"
Cons: "At the beginning they needed 8 people to move up front for take off which was weird but obviously not anyone’s fault, and if the flight was full wouldn’t have happened, so it’s probably not something that could be done differently but was just weird."

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."

Cons: "Johannesburg Airport was terrible and every where we turned in the airport we got misinformation and people tried to scam us for tips including airport employees."

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

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."

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!"

Pros: "the seats"
Cons: "Food was cold"

Cons: "Staff not so friendly"

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."

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."

Cons: "No priority boarding. 15 minutes waiting inside a cramped bus. First three rows in plane are curtailed off but seats are exactly the same as the rest of the plane. Beverage selection was poor and again same as in economy. The lunch was the only difference: a plate of chicken instead of a sandwich. SO WHAT DID I GET FOR PAYING BUSINESS? a curtain, a plate of chicken and exclusive access to the toilet at the head of the plane. Shame on SAA for selling this as a SAA business flight. Or Kayak for wrong advertisement. In the future I will definitely not pay for business as it is absolutely not worth it and will try to fly this portion with Air Botswana"

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"

Pros: "Small plane but a very short flight, so its fine."
Cons: "nothing"

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

Pros: "short, easy flight"

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: "It all went as expected. Today, that is excellent"

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: "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 food was good."
Cons: "Check-in was extremely slow. Some of the screens for the movies did not work. This was not good. The maintenance on the plane is bad. That’s quite a scary thought!"

Cons: "Seat antiquated, food was more economy than business"

Cons: "Great short flight"

Pros: "New plane Courteous staff"
Cons: "Be entertainment offering Lighter style of food offering"

Pros: "Efficient boarding. Flight and cabin crew good."
Cons: "Entertainment - touch screen did not work and mediocre selection."

Cons: "Improve entertainment ease!"

Pros: "Great Plane - comfortable flight indeed"
Cons: "can't think of anything I didn't like"

Cons: "Happy passenger! What more can I ask for"

Pros: "Excelente trip"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Very punctual and friendly crew"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Good food and punctuality"
Cons: "messy check in and security procedures. But this may be the fault of Lusaka airport"

Pros: "Crew was excellent, very personable and were able to get drinks and food out within the 40 min flight."
Cons: "Old plane and the one engine started to make a screeching noise which carried on for about 20 min."

Pros: "The flight crew was excellent! They were extremely kind and helpful and always had a smile on their face. The customer rep who was at the checkin counter also was friendly and smiled. I loved it! I cannot wait to fly with them tomorrow, hopefully it’s the same experience."
Cons: "Nothing to say"

Cons: "Very long lines for check-in and confused staff"

Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Flight was delayed"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The South African Airways staff were completely disorganised and unprepared for a little delay"

Pros: "The captain was so I informative"
Cons: "The delay caused by the refueling"

Pros: "Crew was wonderful."
Cons: "The plane was absolutely freezing even with a winter coat and two blankets. The website would not let me and my friend choose our seats prior to getting passes so we had to keep asking people to switch on both legs of the journey. The bathrooms were disgusting. Pillows are reused."

Pros: "The crew was so caring"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Courtesy of the crew"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Attendants were so kind"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Pilots execptional and cabin crew friendly"

Cons: "Good day. My wife and I were supposed to board on the above flight from Maputo to Johannesburg at 11:30am. For some odd reason the flight wad delayed and the plane only departef at 03:15pm. We had a connection flight from Johannesburg to Luanda (DT578 TAAG Angolan Airlines) wich we nearly missed. My luggage didn't arrive in Luanda. So far nothing wrong. Delays are normal. The major problem was the ground crew in Maputo who didn't provide proper information on time. Furthermore after landing in JHB no protection to late passengers in transit was provided. When disembarking I approached a lady at the bottom of the stairs and she didn't have our names on the list so we were on our own trying to find our way through the endless cue at the transfers counter. We made it but I'm sure Hussein Bolt would have lost a race against us. Shame SAA!!! This was the last airline in Africa I would expect a such unprofessional treatment. My ETKT number is 1187098323350. My name is Fernando Macedo and my wife's is Elsa Amaral. My cell number is +258843125748. Sincerely Fernando Macedo"

Pros: "Really enjoyed the friendliness and humour of the cabin attendants. They even managed to relax passengers during a particularly bumpy patch by pretending to be anxious, when they clearly weren’t!!"
Cons: "All the passengers descended the escalator to the exit door, but then had to crowd together at the base of the escalator before being permitted to leave the terminus to walk to the aircraft. This could be dangerous if too many people have to get down the escalator and need to find a space to stand"

Pros: "The crew and airport assistants were truly amazing"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The captain and crew were professional and delivered an excellent service."
Cons: "Entertainment need to be upgraded."

Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "Everything else. There wasn't a choice of meals. In-flight entertainment didn't work. Crew unpleasant. No water offered during flight. I had to go to the galley to request some."

Pros: "The courtesy of the flight attendants"

Pros: "The crew was nice, were so easy to talk to and they were so hospitable."
Cons: "But I do not have appetite of boarding it again due to the rudeness that I was shown by those who were at the terminal 5. I was coming from Washington State. I boarded a flight from Washington to San Fransisco then from there to New York but none of these charged me the carry on bag. When I reached at New York they said your laws (south african airways) does not allow a person to have carry on bag and laptop bag. At this time I had already extra lagguage which I paid $200 and they told me to pay another $200 dollars for carry on bag. They were so rude to me they told me to leave the bag if I do not have money. I was stranded. I tried to tell them that I boarded two flight which they did not charge me. They said the flights has different laws. But when I was going to New York i used the same flight with carry on lagguge and my laptop bag. So I paid $400. When I entered the flight I was shocked to find that almost everyone had a carryon bag. I felt that they did that to me because I was black and they wanted to find advantage on me. I was so stressful because I had no where to go. I used Delta flight when i was coming to new york but I have never experienced this charges. Now international flight experiencing this horrible situation. . True paying $400 because I had carry on bag?? Am still stressful they took a lot to me. They did not gave me receipt. I asked them to give me receipt all what they were answering me was like "just go." I have never been in a such situation. That is why I said I do not have appetite of boarding South African airways again. Is it true that your laws doesn't allow people to have carryon luggage? If it is true why some customers had the carry on luggage?? my carry was small it was not 23 pounds. Am still feeling pain for what they did to me. I know the name of the woman who was rude. If you treat passengers like that, there will be no good. The complain customer."

Pros: "Everything about the trip"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "I enjoyed the flight. The cabin crew were fantastic. Good assistance in Johannesburg."
Cons: "My boarding in Nigeria was crazy. Some of the staff were seeking for bribe and they almost made me miss my flight. I had to start running just to get on the plane when I arrived 3hrs before time. It is really disappointing. I have flew Emirates and Qatar airways before and did not experience such."

Pros: "How helpful and wonderfully kind each person was. The service was great. I enjoyed the vegetarian options. The briyani was chicken and I was able to eat around the chicken —delicious and tasty. The crew were cheerful and a refreshing relief to the long voyage across this planet. I look forward to my ever increasing abundance so I may travel business for at least one leg of the flight each way. Thank you Virgin Atlantic."
Cons: "Nothing you could have provided other than a business class leg each way. Long, long flight across this planet—half way. I would prefer more English and Foreign movies, please. Unfortunately I left my prescription reading glasses on flight VA602 and Jacques Nortje at Heathrow was kind enough to go looking for them at the lost and found of Virgin Atlantic—to no avail. Black hard case with blue rimmed glasses and a blue cleaning cloth. His service was a godsend—enabling me to stay flight side whilst he went land side so I did not need to go through security for an unaccomplished mission as the glasses were not there."

Cons: "International travellers need to be warned that larger cabin bags may have to go in the hold."

Pros: "Because a KQ flight delayed we could not use the gate advertised, but there was no information given to passengers about the new gate"

Cons: "The aircraft could not take off due to a technical issue and we were told by the captain that we would be provided with accommodation for the night. This did not transpire and the whole plane had to sleep in the departure lounge on the seats with cold aircon and no food or drink. The staff went home and left us to survive. We were told that they would not put us on another flight. By 8 am there was a mutiny because no one was keeping us informed about what was happening. We were tired and hungry and they just did care. After a group meeting, which got very angry, we were then allocated a room in a hotel. The lack of help was unbelievable and we were made to feel like criminals. No senior management came to give apologies. No compensation was offered for our 24 hour delay."

Pros: "The new planes are lovely. Please put a Friday night flight in from Accra to Jbg. We all finish work on Friday and have to stay an extra day in Accra without our families"
Cons: "Checking in the baggage was a problem due to slow processes. Ghana in particular where it took over 60 minutes to check in the bag. The Ghana boarding process actually borders on the ridiculous when you are told to go to the gate three times in the announcements and turned away three times by security staff. You have to produce your passport three times at the boarding gate entry as well. Vegetarian food is normally always a tomato pasta dish. FYI vegetarians eat vegetables too and we like butter and cheese as well. Emigration should work out that two plane loads of people need more than three officials to check them ion arrival at ORT."

Pros: "Puctuality"
Cons: "Lack of entreteinment"

Cons: "Televisions didn't work; had no sound (volume) for the duration of the 15 hour flight"

Pros: "Landing in Joberg and getting off plane."
Cons: "Initial contact with flight attendent giving drinks was somewhat less than polite and did not improve notably over flight. She said she didn't have hot drinks, didn't have white wine and failed to offer choice of red wine but gave the shorter bottle when asked a second time. There was no ice either. This sounds rather petty on my part and I apologize for such. The real issue is I had a dickens of a time coaxing her to smile. Secondly. there was no video function beyond flight path for the entire flight. I live in a village in Zambezi and truly enjoy watching media on flights as I don't see much at home in Kanono and haven't figured out computer very well. The crew said they would reboot (?) the program but that didn't happen. There was no apology for contracted feature not being available, I sure wish I could have watched movies as I am not able to sleep in general."

Pros: "no zones, so when they call the flight, first in line with a ticket gets to board first"
Cons: "There is no jet way/loading bridge connected to the terminal so you walk outside to reach your aircraft. Our boarding took place on a nice day but if the weather was poor then you would be subjected to that environment,"

Cons: "I missed my flight due to delayed domestic flights (united) and as a result, South African considered me a "no show" and cancelled my return trip. I had to buy back the remaining portion of my ticket that I had already purchased."

Pros: "I got help with the boarding pass and once on the plane was very impressed with the comfort of the interior and cleanliness of the plane. I would definitely fly with that airline again."

Pros: "Voyager programme Efficient and friendly crew On return flight they checked passengers hand luggage and stopped the overweight and excessive bags - brilliant as makes flight comfortable for all"
Cons: "Both flights delayed Return flight was an old plane needing some TLC Voyager customer care sucks - they really need a mobile app On return flight they helped themselves to snack in the front pouch of my checked in bag"

Cons: "Crew pathetic and completely absent and unhelpful."

Pros: "The Asian vegetarian meal was pretty good, for plane food."
Cons: "The crew was dismissive and rude and toward myself and my travel companion. At one point we compared the same crew member's behavior toward a business class passenger and it is evident the crew member did not think economy passengers worthy of minimal courtesy and respect. Someone had thrown up on the plane in a seat near us early on the flight and there was a terrible smell on account of the passenger not disposing of her air sickness bag. When we asked the crew for help in kindly reminding passengers to dispose of their airsickness bags, if used, they were very dismissive rather than helpful."

Pros: "The blanket and amenities in our seats"
Cons: "I had the beef for dinner, it was OK only, dessert coconut mouse was not good, the bread was very cold -not inviting. Have the chefs check on this. It was a 9 hrs flight and only one food service?? There is not enough offering of water, in mostly all other long haul flights I have been, bottled water is offered several times throughout the flight There is not a final collection of garbage at the end of the flight and we end up with carrying it out or leaving it inside the plane. In mostly all other long haul flights I have been, rubbish is collected at the end of flight Please implement these measures"

Cons: "Older plane without a legitimate business class. Seat was broken so I had to change seats."

Pros: "I liked that the attendants were very helpful. The flight was smooth. We had a bumpy take off. The landing was smooth. We got in Joburg a little late but we made it"
Cons: "The immigration staff in SA wasn't nice at all. They were very harsh and apathetic. Then we got delayed so bad when some other guy locked himself out with his car in the tarmac. We ended up being delayed all the way and we missed our flight from DC to Chicago. On our way to Harare our suitcases were missing. We had to incur more expenses in the city coming back to the airport , we got charged $148 on top of that by the Harare immigration guys and we had to spend a lot in the restaurant because of that"

Cons: "Incident report: August 15, 2016, SA210, When we stopped at Accra, Ghana, Kotoka International ACC for re-fuel and cleaning the aircraft --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- South African Airline violates two accounts stated on the bottle: 1. When it says “dis-infection of Aircraft” means Passengers are not Aircraft. Passengers should not be sprayed on. Passengers should not be in the airplane when this is sprayed. 2. Use for Pre-embarkation means no human in the aircraft. We were inside of the aircraft. It sprayed on our body all over and everywhere. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Major health damages: 3. After the spray, several passengers (our travel group) had severe sneezing attacks and running nose and sinusitis. One lady sneezed at least 50 times non-stop initially and continued to sneeze for the rest of the trip in the plane. Her sinus was swollen and painful for the rest of trip to Johannesburg. You are lucky she did not make a big deal and suffered silently. You may argue that WHO approved it. On the bottle, WHO approve for the use of Aircraft, not human in the aircraft. On August 15, 2016, I witnessed many passengers’ immune system were damaged – some reacted violently. 4. Please do not wait until someone has asthma attack and die in your aircraft due to allergy to the spray. 5. As a physician I prescribe Permethrin for Scabies treatment. Patients were told to use it on the skin for 8-10 hours and then wash off complete right away due to potential neurotoxicity, especially for young children. 6. My medical specialty is Integrative Medicine and Preventive Medicine. I feel I am obligated to bring this up to Department of Health of South Africa in order to prevent passengers being harmed, especially those who suffer from chemical / environmental allergies, rhinitis, sinusitis, asthma, COPD, skin disease, migraine, etc… just to name a few. 7. Suggestion and Solution: Passengers should all be off the plane, and escort to an area while aircraft is being re-fueled, cleaned and sprayed insides. This will make the cleaning crews more efficient for their cleaning work and less allergenic reactions, potential fatal, to passengers who suffer dust and / or insecticide spray allergies. This will reduce health hazard to passengers and workers. Thank you for being conscious about environmental safety issues. PS: One crew member, Imraan, is very conscientious. He came and showed his concern about symptoms one lady had from spray. He made SA airlines look better. One crew member was rude because he reluctant to give me one bottle of water for my husband who was sleeping at the time of the drink service. ."

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: "Office in Bamako and apperently even in Nairobi never picks up the phone ! The only time they picked up (in Nairobi) they were rude!"

Pros: "Comfortable flight, pleasant airline attendants."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Very helpful, attentive and kind cabin staff."
Cons: "Somewhat dirty ( and smelly ) aircraft even though they are a very new fleet. Some seats had strange patches and stains. Overall cabin experience can be improved in terms of hygiene and food quality ( food was mediocre or slightly worse). Seat ahead reclines almost too much into personal space in the new 787 aircraft. The LCD displays don't pivot so it's virtually impossible to view the entertainment when the occupant of the seat in front fully reclines ( a somewhat irritating issue on a long flight )"

The flight was supposed to be 9 hours, but we left late and it was 11+ hours. I understand things happen, but the crew gave no explanation for the delay or elongated flight. Last, but not least, when we landed in Newark we waited 2 hours for our luggage to come out. We landed at 9:50pm and didn't receive our baggage until 11:50pm. My friend and I were not even the last to get our bags. Overall this was the worst flight experience I've ever had."
