Pros: "It was comfortable"
Cons: "They should start giving out snacks"

Cons: "Flight was delayed for an extra 2 hrs, with inadequate refreshments. Plane wasnt clean and had musty smell."

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: "Staff was friendly and professional."
Cons: "The quality of the food. You pay a lot for a ticket, for that pricem, I just don't expect a croissant (no butter or jam included) and a dry cake. Flight would normally leave at 7.30 AM. A normal time for an airline to serve some kind of decent breakfast for the price you pay. Not at KQ. They are not making friends this way. Am not even talking about emails going unanswered for days with very specific questions: how to book extra luggage allowance. Anyway…"

Pros: "Really good aircraft ( Brazilian made Embrare )"
Cons: "Breakfast ! But it was “04:20 hrs ! So fair do’s !"

Pros: "I loved how comfortable the seats were. Very spacious enough leg room and entertainment on the plane."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "According to the KQ App the flight was direct to Cape Town but when we got to the airport we found the plane was stopping in Livingston’s. The result was we were an hour late. Most annoying. Surely the App can be amended to alert us of such changes"

Pros: "The crew was professional and gave me undivided attention. The food was good. I enjoyed the flight"
Cons: "Cabin crew could have checked up on me more often for anything I would need inbetween the meals"

Pros: "Friendly staff."

Pros: "All fine..."
Cons: "uncomfortable as usual on this kind of planes"

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

Pros: "Flights were on time and aircraft were well serviced"
Cons: "No complaints"

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: "Once on the flight the flight crew were caring and accomodating."
Cons: "Kenya changed my flight to two hours later 18 hours before I was to leave. Making me have a 10 minute connection. Then after an hour in a airline office they promised to hold my connection. When my flight landed on time, they did not hold my connection. So they changed my flight and didn’t follow through on the fix. We would now miss wedding activities and business meetings. Then my partner got sick and they refused to taxi us to hotel for the night but take a bus that leaves every three hours. Her sickness got worse and there was a Kenyan airlines doctor who evaluated her at the airport after waiting 40 minutes laying at check in with her crying due to pain. We had a medical release from the doctor saying she needed extra space to lay down but the check in manager refused to make room for her saying the flight is full and she would not upgrade her to accommodate the medical release because we had an economy ticket. My partner looked so bad that the flight crew considered kicking us off but eventually made the space for her to lay down and were helpful on the flight. This is this disgraceful and the worst experience I’ve had with any company."

Captain only announced when parking slot became available. It took long to get baggage delivered to domestic side and when baggage arrived some including mine were wet with stinking liquid in spite of no rain around airport. at the end Passengers on a later flight made it smoothly out and eventually lost 45 minutes since landing and dirty baggage."

Pros: "I liked the courtesy of the staff"

Pros: "The pilots are very friendly and regularly updates passengers o issues"

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."

I got it on my way back to Bamako. Nobody was even able to even trace my luggage or respond professionally on the phone. Out of hundreds of calls I made to them, they only picked up twice. 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!"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Will never fly this airline again"
Cons: "The food was bad and on the second stretch the airline did a stop over in Cairo that was not originally planned and delayed the flight by over 3 hours making me miss my connection flights and forcing me to rebuy tickets since there was no ground staff at Rome that could handle the situation. Made me end up losing 1000 usd in tickets I had to buy. Not the way I'm used to be treated as a business class costumer"

Cons: "2 separate incidents. One, a fight between passengers at ththe check in desk that spilled over before staff could resolve incident. Then at security, after immigration, no cues. Minimal staff overseeing the process. No organization. Early"

Pros: "Great crew, decent food"

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: "Very helpful, attentive and kind cabin staff. New aircraft !!!"
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)"

Cons: "About time they introduced WiFi on flights"

Cons: "Seats were dirty"

Cons: "Same as above"

Cons: "Old 767, with not comfortable set up and no individual TV set."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable & some of the cabin crew were courteous"
Cons: "Flight delayed due to confusion at boarding gate, unprepared airport staff, wrong info on monitors. Again lack of food, forced to take whatever food they give you or you're told sorry, how can one side serve only fish while the other side chicken??? Vegetarians doomed as they don't get anything & are left without food! Major improvement required in food choices & availability! Our row of seats did not have volume on the tv monitors hence could not use!"

Pros: "The seats were good, the flight was comfortable and easy. Flight attendents were friendly and proffessional."
Cons: "Food could be better but I don't expect much on an airplane, the media system is a bit old so you don't have a lot of options but it's OK."

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.

Cons: "What did I like? Nothin!!!."
