Cons: "Wish SAA doesn’t stop their operation, friendly cabin crew and tremendous professional on deck crew"
Cons: "everything ok"
Pros: "The seat was very comfortable"
Pros: "Crew was really awesome"
Cons: "More information regarding seating preferences"
Cons: "Plane is old and systems worn out. Seats uncomfortable, little leg room, no premium economy and entertainment system didn't work. I have flown nearly 2 million miles and this has to be one of the worst planes I have been on."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The seat was very confortable."
Cons: "Boarding was mediocre."
Pros: "The food was good for airplane food."
Cons: "We were moved to 8 different pairs of seats in search of video/audio systems that worked and were unable to find any that worked properly. That's pretty bad. I travel every year to RSA and used to use Delta. As a result of this trip I may revert back to Delta"
Pros: "The food was really nice and the crew were very helpful."
Cons: "Our experience could have been better if the flights were on time and if the boarding process was a little more organized. Otherwise, we had a great experience with SA airlines and will most likely fly with them again."
Pros: "Seat was awesome. Paid for business class. There were actually 2 stewardess out of the four working. A blonde and a woman of middle east descent."
Cons: "Business first class. I was waiting foe the doors to open and not ome stewardess told me it was wrong door. Ran down to catch bus . They were closing the doors. Told them wait i am business. Omly one on the tarmat. Bus stopped. Doors ope ed and a African young man said go on. He packed me in the eco"
Cons: "my tv didn’t work and after emailing multiple times, they still didn’t accommodate my vegan meal so I could barely eat."
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Was4hrs delay out of jfk"
Pros: "arranged suitable seating for infant travelling with."
Pros: "Only good things about this flight were the price and the fact that it’s direct from NYC to Johannesburg."
Cons: "The plane is very outdated, the seats were uncomfortable, the food was barely edible, and the movie selection was almost as outdated as the plane. There was one flight attendant who was extremely rude as well"
Pros: "Helpful staff at the gate & on the flight"
Cons: "I usually like airline food in economy class - this trip we splashed out & upgraded to business class & were very disappointed with the food: weird dinner choices which weren’t very flavorful & continental breakfast was dried cold cuts & rubbery cheese. The coffee too tasted like it came from a machine, very odd. I think I’ll stick with economy class - business wasn’t worth the huge extra cost!"
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: "Crew was fine as usual. People are always welcoming and accommodating."
Cons: "I'm going to sound like the old joke, "The food here isn't what it used to be." "And neither are the portions!" It's a long-haul flight, though, so there ought to be more snacks and variety. I was in the front third of the economy cabin, and by the time they reached me they'd run out of 2 of the 3 choices, and the remaining one, a beef goulash, was probably 2 ounces of meat, plus fake mashed potatoes and frozen vegetables cooked to the usual imperfection. Another container had a side of orzo, probably 1.5 ounces, and there was a snack-sized Snickers. That was it until breakfast about 12 hours later on a flight that took off at 10:40 am local time."
Cons: "Webjet booked the tickets wrong and put 2 tickets into 1 persons name. We had to spend $1500 to buy a second ticket to the same flight because the travel agent was not willing to fix the issue in time for the flight take off. We went to the airport 3 hours early to make sure of no issues! And then we had to deal with almost missing the flight!!!"
Cons: "Took so long to leave almost missed my connecting flight.0"
Cons: "My luggage was broken into and stolen. They sawed off the zip on my suitcase and broke the handle. Stole a number of personal items including a belt, perfume, t-shirts and cash."
Cons: "Flights were late (maybe out of their control, due to other circumstances). There were no vegetarian options in the meals of either of hte two flights."
Pros: "Staff were friendly."
Cons: "The ventilation in the departure hall is pathetic."
Cons: "Boarding the plane was chaotic and very unorganized. After boarding business class and people with special needs, why can't they board from the back of the plane a few rows at a time? It would make more sense and there would be less pushing and shoving. A lot of people were rushing to get to the gate all at once!"
Cons: "Their aircrafts are dirty"
Pros: "Safe journey"
Cons: "Screens and music did not work so no movies on 14 hour flight!! No dinner"
Pros: "Reasonable space and friendly crew."
Cons: "I paid extra to reserve an aisle seat and the video was out of order. This is a very long flight to be without entertainment."
Cons: "My luggage was "lost" for more than half of my trip and when I finally received it all of my electronic and various other items were stolen."
Pros: "Food was alright, flight was quiet"
Pros: "arrived on time"
Cons: "one of the bathrooms had no water. there were no warning signs not to use it. instead of assisting, the air hostesses just told me to find another bathroom, so I had to run around the plane with soad all over the plane. in general the air hostesses were rude, the area where they were resting was dirty with paper lying all over the floor. the aircraft is really basic and old."
Pros: "No delays (although last minute gate change was a bit annoying)"
Cons: "Meal options ran out quickly even though I was somewhat seated towards the front. They should keep a record of popularity of food options and stock accordingly, in order to prevent running out so quickly."
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: "The service was excellent"
Cons: "The food was poor - relevant to other SAA flights. The boarding was ok, but take off was delayed by 2 hours."
Pros: "This was a quick flight and similar to domestic flights in the US."
Pros: "The gave us lots of water"
Cons: "Old plain, lost my one mine bags, missing items"
Pros: "The crew and food"
Cons: "It's time to put more padding on those seats. Eleven hours on seat cushions that have no give plays havoc with the back and butt."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was firstly delayed by 1h35. Business class was nothing but economy class with a choice of substandard food choice. Very Disappointed in SAA"
Pros: "Full food service in economy and spacious seat"
Pros: "Price and time schedule"
Cons: "Our flight time moved up one hour and no one notified me. If I wasn't at the airport early I would have missed my flight and my connection"
Cons: "Entertainment system had to be re-booted and when they got it working, my system would not work in my seat at all. Made for a very long and miserable flight home."
Pros: "The crew was professional and polite once on board."
Cons: "They changed the gate without making any announcement, then lost my luggage. Not exactly a crowd-pleaser."
Pros: "Crew were friendly. Flight was smooth arrived on time. Nice selection of movies."
Cons: "Stingy with amount of meals snacks given was starving. You needed to ask for water at times it was not often given."
Pros: "Funny and competent in very windy weather"
Cons: "The audio on my TV didn't work, it was very muffled. I understand that it was probably a technical problem, but for a 15-hour flight, I really would have liked to have been able to watch a movie!"
Pros: "Nothing -"
Cons: "We arrived at the airport on Sunday noon and airline staff informed us that we could not get on the plane, because we didn't have the yellow fever vaccine. When we bought the flight you didn’t warn us that this was a requirement. We had to pay 1000 usd additional to change the flights, plus 1000 usd for the hotel to stay in Sao Pablo for the days that I must be here, plus the fee for the change in the reservation in Johannesburg. THIS WOULD NEVER HAVE HAPPENED IF I HAD BOUGHT MY FLIGHTS IN A TRADITIONAL AGENCY! It happened to me for trusting you and your services on the Internet!"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "I am a foodie, so airline food probably will never meet my demands but I thought the food was very good for the time and place ."
Cons: "Same plane as the previous flight, so the same comment holds true: "My seat cushion had very little padding which after a few hours became conspicuously apparent. I think they need new seats on those planes, or perhaps just some reupholstering.""
Pros: "The crew was attentive and friendly. The flight was short but service was friendly and good."
Cons: "The boarding and disembarking in JNB. Not the fault of the airline it is just how things are accomplished in JNB with small a/c."
Pros: "This flight from Johannesburg to Washington - return - is a 17 hour flight with the middle hour on the ground in Dakar for refueling. We have flown this flight many times complete and also halfway. Some get on or off in Dakar - which makes it difficult for everyone as seating arrangements and cleaning are adjusted before the second leg of the journey. Overall the staff did a good job of taking care of things as necessary."
Cons: "The pilot could have made more adjustments for turbulence throughout the flight. Both the visual entertainment and the audio options were quite limited and not much on either that suited my tastes. Surely a much greater range and option on both could be made available."
Pros: "Entertainment on Etihad is incomparable."
Cons: "Boarding in Abu Dhabi is a hassle due to construction at airport. Not the fault of airline. Seats did not provide much space or comfort, especially for an 8 hour flight."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable Boarding was smooth"
Cons: "No internet Ran out of vegetarian options"

Flight was comfortable Thanks

I took six flights with Ethiopian and are were early. All of their longhaul aircraft are modern (oldest was 12 years old) but they do feel cramped when full. They lost my luggage on the way out you really have to take the initiative to get it back. They sent it on the next flight two days later but because they lose so many bags and Niamey only has 2-3 staff to deal with them (and they go home after the last flight), you're best to track when the next flight lands and then go find your bag yourself.) I did not have a tight connection on Addis - I guess the plane's luggage hold was maybe full

Pros: "The food!! The flight was in time and also the flight attendant were so available and caring"
Cons: "I have wifi in board for an hour for whatsapp messaging I would have beloved to have it all flight"
Cons: "Better veg food, Ask and provide water to drink when flight is 10 hrs long. Not just provide lunch and dinner."

Cons: "Nothing very nice flight."
Pros: "The crew were ok but took ages to help you"
Cons: "faster service in the plane"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by nearly 4 hours due to a cargo loading issue in Mombasa. Communication from Ethiopian Airlines staff regarding the issue & delay was very poor. Passengers were becoming very anxious and tense regarding the flight, if it would depart, and the safety of the plane. Improved communication from the Ethiopian Airline staff would have gone a long way to calming the situation and reassuring passengers."
Pros: "It was a very short flight"
Pros: "I liked they’re fury free in flight shopping, very nice affordable pieces of jewelry and perfumes"
Cons: "They weighed my carryon! I haven’t seen any other airline do that before. I flew with them 3 times this year, 13 hour each flight and the entertainment was not the best. They didn’t have enough current movies or tv shows. The food was bland. Coffee cups were plastic and it burnt my finger."
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Staff needs to be briefed on what an insulin pump is."
Pros: "The boarding was superb."
Cons: "The food is ma ma!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The plane was spacious"
Cons: "-The flight entertainment wasn't working -There was a delay, but no one from the airline communicated; we were just waiting and the waiting area didn't have sits"
Pros: "Flight time changed without notice. Delays in Medinah caused us to miss our connecting flight to Johannesburg. Really poor communication. No agents would take calls in Jeddah. Really terrible service. Would avoid using this airline at all cost. Not the first time I've been delayed by them"
Cons: "Flight time changed without notice. Delays in Medinah caused us to miss our connecting flight to Johannesburg. Really poor communication. No agents would take calls in Jeddah. Really terrible service. Would avoid using this airline at all cost. Not the first time I've been delayed by them"
Cons: "Cabin crew quite distracted. Between rows 19-23, orders were totally mixed up People given wrong food or drinks"
Pros: "Having never even heard of Ethiopian Airline, our expectations weren’t very high. We found the boarding process to work well. The staff was great and the meals were very good. The flights were on time and efficient."
Cons: "On many of the flights we had to use the roll up stairs. The water that they served tasted like tap water. The seats seem closer (less leg room) than other airlines."
Pros: "New plane fantastic cabin"
Cons: "There was a fight but nothibg to do with the flight crew just some passenger with mental issues"
Cons: "They didn’t announce when boarding started/what zones were to go."

Cons: "I can’t fault anything on this flight."
Pros: "The friendliness and willingness to assist passengers when they notice one facing a challenge"
Cons: "The chairs in economy do not give sufficient leg room especially for tall persons, this would present a challenge on long haul"
Cons: "My phone was stolen on airport premises"
Pros: "the air craft was very good and the comfort is good no complain..."
Cons: "i did'n't like some of the cabin crew the way they are ....and am very disappointed from kinshasa to my check in i did ask a lady about my bag, she told me i will get my bag to cape straight, and i did ask her two times about the bag, she keep saying the same thing i will get my bag to cape town, so until now i haven't find my bag yet, the number they gave me from the airport no body pic up the phone, so i don't know what i can i do to get my bag......if you can hep me in this mater please contact me on my email or on my cell number 0027 78 470 6195. thank you your best regards."

Pros: "Great crew, decent food"
Cons: "Chairs were not reclining. Asked for blanket and didn't get one so I was cold."
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 )"
Pros: "When I originally booked this trip it was with one connection and a 16 hour commute time. They added legs to my trip which significantly increased travel time. I tried to cancel my flight because I booked the flight with the necessity of arriving by specific days and times and they insisted on charging me for it so I just forfeited my seat and trip all together. There's nothing good to say about Ethiopian airlines."
Cons: "They are very unprofessional and unhelpful and I'll never book them again."
Pros: "POLITE AND GENTLE CREWS. SERVICE WITH A SMILE. AIR FARE REASONABLE COMPARED TO OTHER AIRLINES"
Cons: "IF FARE IS CHEAP THAN THAT DOES NOT MEAN THE SERVICES SHOULD BE POOR"
Pros: "The flight was ok, left late but didn't impact our arrival time."
Cons: "Tray table was very dirty, restroom not cleaned or refilled, generally unkempt."
Cons: "Seats were dirty"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "The crew very kind and made me feel comfortable"
Cons: "Old 767, with not comfortable set up and no individual TV set."
Pros: "The service during the flight was perfect"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "The best flight ever and the crew is super cool"
Pros: "After I bought the tickets then they cancelled three or of the fire legs and have me over night flights, who does that? There was no storm, no earthquake, why? I'll never Vik with them again. And, weeks later I'm still trying to get my money back, over a thousand dollars lost to an unprofessional airline."
Cons: "What did I like? Nothin!!!."
Pros: "They made sure we had plenty to eat"
Cons: "My entertainment system didn't work."
Pros: "Staff were pleasant"
Cons: "One segment of my flight did not have the gluten free meal I had requested ahead of time. Super crowded."
Pros: "I liked that we didn't have any issues and didn't crash."
Cons: "Food is the SAME every time! Service was not great, skipped me twice on drinks and they seemed annoyed when I asked for a water and a water refill since the cups are so small. I get that its a quick flight and they have to finish before a certain time. But service for the people in the back should be the same as those in the front."
Pros: "The fact that I had a row of three to myself"
Cons: "I asked for an extra cup of coffee (cups very small) which didn't arrive until I reminded the stewardess several times. Flight was only half full. The food was very bad. A pink sausage and very, very dry bread, which absorbed all moisture in my mouth."
Cons: "There was no entertainment system and there was no vegetarian option. I would have registered for the vegetarian option ahead of time, but when I tried to do online check in, it didn't work."
Pros: "It was a good flight, made only a little disappointing by all the children running through the plane, opening the washroom doors and leaving them open. A little strange, really."
Pros: "Dreamliner is a great plane"
Cons: "My luggage didn't make my connection. Came 2 days later though."

The boarding process was smooth and the seat quite comfortable. The snack served was tasty. There could have been better entertainment options available. The crew was quite courteous and friendly.

Very good ground and crew staff. Very helpful and friendly. Good comfortable flight with good entertainment and food. As always, excellent crew service.

Cons: "Nice flight cheap n cheerful"
Pros: "It was comfortable"

Cons: "Flight take off was delayed aprox 40mnts & pilot’s language and message was not clear why we are still grounding !"
Cons: "Seating"
Pros: "Boarding and comfort"
Cons: "Should be more food/drink selections Probably better to fly Jambo Jet as it has more on offer (even if I have to pay)"
Pros: "Really good aircraft ( Brazilian made Embrare )"
Cons: "Breakfast ! But it was “04:20 hrs ! So fair do’s !"
Cons: "Not many movies to chose from."

Cons: "Old planes and little entertainment"
Pros: "Flights were on time and aircraft were well serviced"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight is always delayed"
Pros: "Once I got on the flight things were fine, but the process of getting there was a nightmare."
Cons: "My Air India and Kenya Airways flights were packaged together as though they were a code share, but when my initial let on Air India from Delhi to Mumbai was delayed I missed my connection to Nairobi. What followed was a bizarre five-hour scramble in the Mumbai airport that ranks in the top three worst flight experiences I’ve ever had. I had already checked in and had a emailed boarding pass, but wasn’t let through security without the official airline printout. Although the Kenya Airways Nairobi flight was also delayed and was still several hours from boarding, their staff was nowhere to be found and none of their 10+ customer service numbers was working. I finally managed to get a hold of a representative over the phone via the airport’s information counter, and she swore that a staff member was on the way to meet me. Two hours and several calls and assurances later, the flight took off without me and the Kenya Airways staff stopped picking up the phone. Then there was a crazy several hours of back and forth as a single employee emerged and demanded that I get a letter from Air India taking responsibility for the initial delay, before disappearing again for several hours. The disorganization, unprofessionalism and outright lies I encountered were frankly bizarre and unlike anything I’ve encountered while flying before."
Pros: "The crew was professional and friendly."
Cons: "My flight was delayed. The gate changed at least four times with no clear announcement."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Solid overall performance in all the basics"
Cons: "Crew were always in a bit of a rush and cold, Paris airport staff were frankly rude sometimes"
Pros: "Timeous and polite crew"
Cons: "The food was mediocre and no choice for entertainment, common movie or 2 low quality music channels"
Pros: "Nice configuration and good early boarding plus courteous staff"
Cons: "Cabin was too hot and no headphones, gor the narrow movie selection"
Pros: "Timing & touch downs. Good flying."
Cons: "Food & drink. Little choice, poor taste."
Pros: "Everything went as it should."
Cons: "The AC in the plane was a little bit to cold"
Pros: "Everything fine! Especially appreciated that flights were on time, even early."
Cons: "Staff on the airplane a bit miserable. Uncomfortable seats and no choice of food. Going downhill"
Pros: "The flight arrived early to Bangkok"
Cons: "The plane was old. Some seats didn't recline. My husband's sound system didn't work. The audio selection was minimal. The bathroom started out filthy with urine everywhere, and stayed that way. These things are inconvenient on a 10 hour flight!"
Cons: "Kenya Airways ground staff in Nairobi was late to open the desk, creating a large line"
Pros: "Convenient morning flight"
Cons: "Not enough leg room for tall passengers"
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: "Client oriented crew"
Cons: "Delay in departure time"
Pros: "Flight was ok"
Cons: "I got my items stolen . My bag was opened and pilfered I have made a report to the airline but still haven't heard anything"
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."
Cons: "The food was so-so. The flight was delayed. The crew was friendly, but nothing outstanding."
Cons: "They lost one piece of baggage. The check-in crew said we were required to have our vaccination cards although nobody asked for them. Then we waited an hour pulling off one piece of baggage and then they didn't load it on our flight."
Pros: "It was a great flight except for food"
Cons: "Choice of dish - fish ( was like rubber) or beef"
Pros: "Plane was a new Dreamliner and nice to fly in with excellent entertainment package."
Cons: "I had 3 hours in Johannesburg before catching a shuttle bus, so being an hour late wasn't a big problem. After rushing from Entebbe flight which was an hour late leaving and arriving, I got to the gate to be informed that this NBO to JNB flight was an hour late in departing. Pilot said it was due to "technical difficulties". My ticket had 4 legs : Nov 28 due to leave JNB at 1:20 finally left at 8:30 due to NBO runway closed from plane belly landing - the pilot was very apologetic - LATE. Dec 5 NBO to Entebbe was an hour late due to "passenger problem and luggage taken off" - LATE. Dec 10 Entebbe to NBO left an hour late due to "plane arriving late" - LATE. Dec 10 NBO to Johannesburg was an hour late due to "technical difficulties" - LATE. All 4 flights were at least an hour late leaving and arriving yet the pilots all said thanks for flying Kenya Airways - the Pride of Africa. This is what Africa should be proud of ?!? and Kenya Airways is proud of ?!? Passengers I talked to all were negative in their comments about Kenya Airways. All said there is ALWAYS something of a problem on a Kenya Airways flight. Lady on NBO to EBB flight next to me as we boarded plane and I said everything has gone smoothly so far, replied - the flight isn't over yet - and then we sat in the plane for an hour while they "removed passengers luggage". A man in NBO departure area as we waited to board JNB late flight said, the procedures and organisation are terrible with problems most of the time, which was why he was using up his reward miles because he didn't want to fly Kenya Airways again. This is the culture of this airline which is allowed to continue with seemingly no regard for the paying customers. If the powers that be such as the FAA, imposed a $100 credit to each passenger for late leaving or arriving, I would have received $400 back on a ticket that cost $750. Maybe the airlines would do something practical to remedy their problems and care for the paying customers rather than just saying "we are sorry for any inconvenience "."
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."
Cons: "The planes on this route are also very old with manual screens,unnecessary delays. I mean KQ needs to style up. Another airline will soon sweep them off business"
Cons: "Messy boarding Late departure"
