Pros: "I liked how generous they were with food and drinks"
Cons: "Free WiFi could have made the flight a lot better"

Pros: "Overall a nice and good flight"
Cons: "Just a detail, my “head holder” (not too sure how it is called) would not hold in position. Also, staff was a bit slow to come after being called, I had to go and ask for water by myself at some point since no one was coming after 15minites of waiting..."

Cons: "The only complaint I had was that it was very warm on the flight (and I usually get cold on flights), and in the seats we had there weren't fans above the seats. A few rows up they had fans, so apparently you have to pay extra for air... This wouldn't be a big deal on a short domestic flight, but for an international flight it was a long time to be uncomfortable!"

Pros: "Almost everything, especially the crew."
Cons: "Don’t feel like anything should be better to be honest"

Pros: "Flight and the crew!"
Cons: "Staff at the airport pushing you to upgrade to first class but not making it clear only the first trip from Athens to Amsterdam which the first class uses same uncomfortable seats as the economy to pay extra 130 euros ridiculous airfrance stuff! I should have flown all the way to NYC first class!!!"

Pros: "Reclinable seats."
Cons: "The food!! The lights could be dimmed as it was a night flight."

Pros: "The crew was amazing, flight on schedule and good entertainment."

Pros: "Crew helpful. Food good."
Cons: "Better range of movies please"

Pros: "Great crew, comfortable seating with enough leg room."

Pros: "Nice aircraft"
Cons: "Unexpected refueling stop. 2 hr delay Lost connection Reached destination after 18 hr delay"

Cons: "I called for a crew member 5 times and waited 25 minutes for anyone to help me with just some water. I had to get up and go to the very back of the plane to ask for some water. The plane was hot and no air to be found. This was all after we had to get back off the plane before takeoff. It was terrib"

Pros: "My seat at the window was great and the staff really friendly and courteous!"

Pros: "The crew were very nice, food was tasty, seat comfortable and the entertainment great as well. Will be flying KLM again soon :)"

Pros: "Lovely crew, very helpful"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Nice that wine was served without charge."
Cons: "Announcements from the cockpit were hard to hear. Food has been better in past."

Pros: "I bought the Airport tickets for my Russian friend. However customs would not allow her to board the plane unfortunately. That's not Kayaks fault. I would definitely book with Kayak again. Many thanks."

Pros: "Seats were very comfortable, food was excellent, the staff was very nice, cabin was quite and roomy."
Cons: "No outlets to charge digital devices, and need more bathrooms on board. I was able to sleep most of the 11 hour flight so I did not take advantage of the entertainment."

Pros: "Interior of the plane was clean. Smooth landing."
Cons: "Pilot did not avoid turbulence"

Pros: "Arrived early!"
Cons: "Boarding seemed disorganized."

Pros: "Food and staff behaviour"
Cons: "Entertainment"

Pros: "The boarding was easy and you didn't have to wait inline for that long"
Cons: "KLM needs to upgrade the entertainment. It was very hard to see the images on the screen. The planes that KLM uses are old and they sure need to be upgraded."

Cons: "Our two hour connection in Paris became 30 minutes because Air France was late in leaving Washington. So our luggage didn't make to to KLM to Amsterdam. My poor rating was because the luggage handling was really poor. Lots of flights from Paris to Amsterdam (almost hourly), but my bag showed up 12 hours later. My wife's bag took 36 hours. And yes, we checked in together. There were lots of confusing messages"

Pros: "He missed it due to having a 32 minute layover, which he ran all the way to board."
Cons: "he had no choice but to look at the closed door of his flight, and wait an additional 7 hours and they didn't even give him a voucher for food. I'm his mother, I'm currently visiting family in Scotland, so couldn't help him much. I'm pretty disgusting and disappointed by the whole experience."

Pros: "Nice flight, nice crew, and a nice experience."

Cons: "Actually the Welcome on board announcement. The part where they special welcome loyalty program members. I do not get that... I am an explorer holder my self, but really?? so other paying customers are not as welcome. This is leftovers from the older days.."

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "Airlines issue"
Cons: "Profiling certain customers"

Cons: "Tiny old cramped plane."

Pros: "Got to Amsterdam on time and everything was great including the staff"

Pros: "The flight was very good, specially considering it was a daylight one. Staff was friendly and servicial. Tue food was above the industry's average."

Pros: "Easy Boarding"

Pros: "staff was fine"
Cons: "old old plane, very uncomfortable. Tiny bad screen made movies pointless"

Pros: "Very little if any."
Cons: "Aircraft was not very clean,the staff seamed quite harsh at times when speaking to customers. The food was really quite poor but it was a short flight to be honest. Overall not as pleasant as the China Southern flights. I would not like to choose them again unless i had to."

Cons: "KLM can't seem to figure out the order of boarding the plane. Should be business - priority - everyone else. Instead they do priority first, and that's usually two-thirds of the passengers. Also, really tired of the fake business class on these flights..."

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 at Schipol airport were lovely and very helpful. Cabin crew were friendly and efficient. On board snack was nice."
Cons: "Elbow room is a little bit awkward and I didn't get to sit next to my fiance WE will still definitely recommend KLM though!"

Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly, but they only had limited resources to work with."
Cons: "Worst aircraft I have been on in years. No wifi or entertainment, no power outlets, only bad wine/beer for a 3+ hour flight is mediocre at best..."

Pros: "It's the best flight I could get for such a low price. But don't expect to to get the best and newest planes around but it's still overall a good experience."
Cons: "Quite bummed the plane didn't have wifi / USB"

Pros: "Unexpected surprise--even on a 1 hour flight at noon, they gave us a sandwich!"

Pros: "Overall very nice flight, even comes with free drink and snack"

Cons: "sardines!"

Pros: "Good food, good entertainment system, comfortable seating."
Cons: "Only one toilet working in business class. A crew member told me that it was a decision to fly with only one toilet to ensure no delay. There was a disgusting stench of sewerage for the complete flight from Amsterdam to Johannesburg. This was in all likelihood due to the broken toilet on the left side."

Pros: "10 hour flight - I was well looked after, regular drinks, the food and snacks were good enough and tasty. The in flight entertainment was good - latest movies and worked a great variety of tv, books and movies. The airplane was modern and comfortable"

Pros: "Great crew, on time, could get a good nights sleep"

Pros: "The seats were comfy and the pilots were skilled, food was average."
Cons: "The handles in between the seats could've been better by being able to be completely raised."

Pros: "The flight attendants were the warmest and most personable I’ve seen in a long time. All ground staff had the same amazing hospitality."
Cons: "Finnair A321 HEL-DXB, 6 hour flight, uses regular EuroBusiness seats (same seat as economy but blocked middle seat and better food), no wi fi , no tv, very uncomfortable aircraft."

Pros: "Crew was amazing, service was super attentive. Plane was new with plenty of space. P"
Cons: "Really exceeded my expectations for a short haul flight. Kudos to Aeroflot!"

Pros: "Everything! I never knew Finnair was such a great airline."
Cons: "Other than maybe the lengthy layover time, which probably can't be helped, nothing could have been better."

Cons: "Boarding began 25 min after the indicated time. Huge crowd of people (big Airbus 330) was standing in the corridor in some kind of disorganized manner. Priority entrance was open, but then another 20-25 min in the closed waiting area, some kind of hoarder. Only then the mixture of all passengers was let through the sleeve to the plane. Why bother about Priority? Plane arrive in NYC 35 min late. Many transit passengers worried about their connecting flights."

Cons: "My headphones didn’t work"

Cons: "Horrible complimentary food quality in economy class. Not enough options to purchase food/snack."

Pros: "Overall it was a great experience with Finnair, the plane was clean and spacious. The crew was very nice and helpful. The food and drinks were great as well"

Cons: "video was broken"

Pros: "The flight did eventually take off, unlike a few others leaving around the same time."
Cons: "We were delayed several hours and were never told why. Mostly there were no Aeroflot staff at the gate to ask. When there was, they said they couldn't help us because our flight was a codeshare with FinnAir. At the last minute they switched gates, sending us all scurrying."

Pros: "Crew were great / free wine !"
Cons: "Crowded and chaotic boarding"

Pros: "the food was decent, the people were nice"
Cons: "the baggage check was a zoo. there was only one finnair representative, who was LATE. the baggage check was opened only 1.5 hours before the flight, causing a massive line."

Pros: "nonstop to Helsinki was great...I have done this route over 100 times and this was the first time non-stop. When you have 17-19 hours travel time in your head door to door and then it is 12 - you really appreciate the extra time. THANK YOU!"

Pros: "Crew is very nice and helpful. Food is just fine."
Cons: "Seats are too close and not enough space for my legs. I am 187 (6'2"). No outlets for phone charging."

Cons: "I could not be given the boarding pass fir the last leg of my trip"

Pros: "The original flight was canceled, the stroller was taken away when boarded the airplane, and not seen until final destination. With a 1-year-old and 2 and a half year old, this was the worst ever flight. Take us 35 hours total travel time to get home with 2 small kids, it is a nightmare."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and changed to 2 stops from one. We purchased a 1 stop flight because of the kids. In mid season a week before departure, we were notified about the change and it was impossible to get a same priced ticket so close to departure. We bought insurance but even with that was impossible. Looks like a scam. Very upsetting, messed up the whole thing."

Pros: "The plane was good, the flight time was nice, just 9.5 hours."
Cons: "The boarding was kind of chaotic, but the crew was kind. The plane seemed comfortable but the seats sit too far back, so when the person in front of me sat his seat back, his head was almost in my lap. It made it hard for me to move or read or do anything. The food was super bland and the drink options were pretty limited. The entertainment selection was much more limited than most flights."

Pros: "Fantastic service staff food and beverages"
Cons: "Just slightly hard when laying down on the seat to sleep"

Pros: "Like that you served Finnish food! many choices of films to watch was great too!"

Pros: "Being on time, crew was helpful, entertainment nice. The 30 min layover between JFK-HEL and HEL-SVO was perfectly organized, the gates were next to each other."

Cons: "the flight got delayed for an hour and I missed a connecting flight. Was re-routed through Moscow and was at my destination point 11 hours later."

Pros: "Check-in process very efficient. Boarding uneventful. Flight attendants are engaged and present as humans (does it have to do with being well rested?). Blueberry drink was a nice "ethnic" touch."
Cons: "Check-in counters opened only 2 hours before departure. These days most European airlines counters are open 6-24 hours in advance. Was not really an issue for this small aircraft and lines moving fast once opened."

Cons: "See above"

Pros: "Crew service is excellent"
Cons: "Sitting in the cramped economy seats was a 9 hour torture"

Cons: "I don't live in Riga and had pick up scheduled in Rigas airport to take me home to Telsiai, Lithuania. Because flight was delayed and I had to fly to Talin and then to RigaI I arrived at 10pm plus took me another 30min to figure out what happened with my luggage. I am still in Riga waiting for the morning to schedule another ride home. Very long , inconvenient trip ;-("

Pros: "All standard service, nothing extremely good or bad."

Cons: "I have traveled all over the world and never had an issue with luggage but finnair lost my bags and have little information on how to help other than a $70 credit which doesn't cover anything."

Pros: "Finnair is great. I travel with a cello and they were terrific! 1. They understand and respect musicians and the anxiety involved in traveling with a large, fragile musical instrument. 2. The staff was very responsive and helpful in answering my questions and concerns. 3. Finnair employees are a totally professional group of people and friendly, too. all the flights were smooth. I've flown a lot and for me Finnsir is always the best choice to Moscow."
Cons: "The experience going was great. Coming home, the plan was old, but it didn't bother me."

Pros: "FLIGHT & COMFORT WERE OK AIRCRAFT NEW AND WELL MAINTAINED MINIMAL SERVICE BUT CONSIDERING THE PRICE IT WAS OK THE AIRLINE PROVIDES SOME DRINKS FOR FREE (BUT...)"
Cons: "POOR ENTERTAINMENT I PURCHASED FOOD AND IT WAS LESS THAN OK THE AIRLINE ACTUALLY PROVIDES COFFEE, TEE, WATER AND "JUICE" FOR FREE BUT IT IS NOT CLEARLY EXPLAINED"

Pros: "I liked service very much."

Cons: "No kiosk check-in? The airline definitely takes its making pasengers queuei for hours."

Pros: "Staff was friendly and accomodating. The food service for the long international flight was better than I expected."
Cons: "Movie entertainment options were not consistent from plane to plane. On the arriving flight, the plane had an impressive offering of movies and tv shows for passenger viewing during flight, however, on the return flight, there was much less available."

Pros: "Very nice crew, Economy Premium seats had enough legroom, not a bad choice of movies on the flight"
Cons: "Worst food I ever had on a plane (frequent traveler), I would be afraid to feed it to my dog, let alone eat it myself. Barely ate anything, spent most of my flight very hungry. Refused to eat breakfast at all, it was that bad! Please do something about it, it is outrageous to give people garbage like that."

Pros: "Airplane was pretty spacious and clean and it had all the amenities of a newer plane"

Pros: "It was a British Airways flight, plane was large, and felt more roomy than what I'm used to. The service was impeccable."

Pros: "It seems a bit unfair to rate Finnair, when the flight was serviced by Iberia...that being said - everyone seemed to be put out by any request or basic question. The movies were really good and (UNLIKE the flight from Chicago to Madrid, where i was told they didn't do that) the stewardess on the flight home didn't mind giving me a second glass of wine."
Cons: "the people at the boarding desk in O'Hare were rude & indifferent. The flight attendants on way to Spain were non-existant The food was comically awful!!! The man at the check-in desk in Madrid could not have been ruder or less helpful (Hopefully for his wife's sake!) The food on the way home again was unfortunate.....that can NOT possibly be the best food any company can find in Spain. Hell - wed have been better off with a cheese & ham plate with some bread!!"

Pros: "The crew was attentive, the plane left on time, we arrived very early at our destination."
Cons: "The people working at the American Airline counters at the Philly International Airport are very unhelpful and rude. When the check-in kiosk said to get assistance from a rep, the reps told me they could not move from behind their counters. The TSA people people were worse. They treat passengers as if they are dogs, never saying please or thank you, but giving commands in condescending tones to people."

Pros: "Updated gate changes sent to phone was a life saver!"

Pros: "American Airlines flight didn't even have tvs, chairs were old and outdated. Not worth the price. Now days there are some standards that are expected"

Pros: "Finnair is always a pleasure and Helsinki is an attractive and well-run airport."

Cons: "The plane was old. The movies were played in the aisle and the selection was inappropriate/terrible. No kids on the flight and they played a Disney dinosaur movie and the Peanuts movie."

Pros: "Overnight flight and not full so could stretch out."
Cons: "It really was not Finnair, it was American. When I tried checking in Finnair had no knowlege of my ticket. I had to read the fine print to find the name American Airlines. Even the woman at Finnair was not sure, and thought that it was run by Brittish Air."

Pros: "Food, not crowded, small plane"
Cons: "No individual tvs"

Pros: "They were accommodating and helpful, despite being overbooked and busy."
Cons: "We cannot think of one thing they could have done better. They were a very professional crew."

Pros: "Courtesy of attendants, smooth flight, good service"
Cons: "Food and your TV screens are not good. Very hard to operate a touch system which is so insensitive. Movie choice rather poor as well"

Cons: "The movies shown were not great and there were no TV screens in the headrests. Also, you have to pay for soda. Only coffee, tea, and blueberry juice is complementary. Our bags were also lost on this flight, or never made the connection from our previous flight."

Cons: "No individual air controls for each seat"

Cons: "Most of the entertainment consoles did not work"

Pros: "food and crew"
Cons: "Poor entertainment offer (no quality movies and not varied options-not classic movies!!). Interactive device menu not working properly or at all. Outraging policy to offer more bookings than available seats that turned out into my wife and me being put in standby when we had purchased our tickets last July. Waiting for 30-40 minutes to claim our baggage to know it had been left in our origin destination in the end so it would probably be delivered 2 days later since the next flight would arrive the following day but late in the evening and more time wasted on the lane to claim for it that caused to miss our connecting train that would take us home and we had to wait for another hour to take the next so we finally got home 2 hours later than expected. We will never use again another company from the one world alliance."

"Could not hear announcements from staff. Luggage in hold was delayed on both legs of trip."

"Air France service was superb. The airline did their best to expedite the boarding process even with the constant changes of Covid19 guidelines"

"It was so helpful to be able to board the plane front and back. It makes it so much faster. It was also helpful announcements were made in French and English. I cannot thing of anything that would have made that short flight better."

Pros: "How great everyone was and smooth sailing."
Cons: "Made sure the flight was not over booked."

Cons: "I was almost forced to stow my luggage in the hold despite me telling the check-in people tjat I had my meds and cpap in the carryon. I spoke to multiple people. Not sensitive."

Pros: "I've never been on a flight with such narrow seat and thin cushion. There was no entertainment offered for the almost 4 hour flight. There was no means of charging any electronic gears. The airplane seems to be 30 years behind time. Crew was unfriendly and smiling faces are not part of the uniform."
Cons: "Very narrow seats and thim cushion. No entertainment offered an do means of recharging electronic devices."

Pros: "Not much, seats are super uncomfortable"
Cons: "Better code sharing with KLM"

Cons: "First class bathroom could have been cleaner and wider - very narrow, hard to maneuver"

Cons: "This was one of the worst flights I’ve been on. Both planes were downright filthy. The flight from Dallas to Barcelona had several broken toilets. Flight from Paris to Barcelona boarded and once everyone was on board, they told us that we would be sitting there for 2 hours before leaving."

Pros: "Crew was good, seat was not, it was freezing cold and one little blanket was inadequate!"
Cons: "Provide another blanket when needed, was wearing shorts and a short sleeve shirt."

Cons: "See above."

Pros: "Average crew. Average seat."
Cons: "They could have controlled screening babies better. They just let them scream....."

Pros: "Tight seat, was moved out of exit row because of my age"
Cons: "Could have stayed in exit row. Plan arrived in Moscow late so flight was over one hour late"

Pros: "The new movies selection, food was very good, staff more friendly than previous flights"
Cons: "Boarding always a problem on MEA we have to wait too long in the queue"

Cons: "The food was mediocre. Flying La Compagnie in the past was a much better food experience."

Cons: "Boarding at CDG was awfully slow"

Pros: "Nice staff. Flight on time."
Cons: "Bus to plane. Long walk to terminal upon arrival. Long Liong customs line?!!??"

Pros: "The crew were polite and friendly"
Cons: "Everything was incredibly poor. Flight was delayed, entertainment was outdated and the airport staff were rude."

Cons: "Flight was delayed by at least an hour leaving Paris - a regular situation I experienced with AF."

Pros: "The staff were very helpful and professional."
Cons: "The food was awful and the option I wanted had run out. The entertainment was faulty and had to be reset several times. The comfort was below standard and needs to be improved."

Pros: "Not much expected as it was a budget trip."
Cons: "Poor timing in between connections, barely made in time to my first connection being the last person to board"

Pros: "Great service"

Pros: "The food, beverages and choices of movies, entertainment There was a medical emergency that caused the flight to land in Canada. This was handled very professionally - I hope the passenger ended up getting the care needed and is doing well."

Pros: "Crew and boarding were very good. Very helpful to foreigners. Thank you Coffe was really good didn’t eat food. Sleeping."
Cons: "Business class seats weren’t comfortable and too narrow no entertainment."

Pros: "Great service and food."
Cons: "Tv screen is resolution is to low. Hard to see details."

Cons: "The food was the worst airline food I have ever been served. I could not eat it. This is very disappointing for an airline like AirFrance which usually serves very good meals."

Cons: "Security services at Manchester airport...too long and not friendly at all"

Pros: "Very good male crew member. Pilot genuinely apologetic for the delay."
Cons: "After running due to a 1 hr 10 min change over between flights boarding didn't prioritise anyone but I got on fine. Only to be told at the departure time that there was a problem with the baggage hold and we were delayed. In total 50 minutes late leaving. Breakfast a simple brioche with nothing to add to it."

Pros: "It was ok fligh"
Cons: "Food was not so good"

Pros: "The plane arrived in New York smoothly"
Cons: "They lost my luggage and have no information as to where it is. It has been 3 days and no Information. There was only one meal for the flight and alcoholic beverages were not included."

Pros: "Standard on most parts with pleasant staff"
Cons: "Flight was 1/2hr with poor pre-flight communication on the topic. Food wise, the chocolate cookie was better than nothing...but a little savory snack would have been nice."

Pros: "The service"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Nice crew, free snacks"
Cons: "For taller people flying economy sucks . The seats are always to small"

Pros: "This is what happens when you get roped in by a low price."
Cons: "Disorganization which led to not being able to pre-purchase baggage. Then bad info at airport which led to multiple trips through security trying to make weight on a bag that should have been checked but was told didn't need to. Ended up missing flight, having to rebook at full fare and no one knows where the bag that was checked is. STAY AWAY!"

Pros: "The food, the service and everything else is fine, quite good."
Cons: "However, our baggages were 1 day late. Your missing baggages would deliver to you 1 day later, for some maybe 2 days later...Quite a few people said that it's been always like this with air Aeroflot if there is a transfer flight."

Pros: "It es a good flight back"
Cons: "Items missing on duty free purchases"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Window pane was broken on my side and I couldn't shut it down. As it was a day flight the sun heated my skin badly"

Pros: "Boarding and punctuality."
Cons: "Lagos boarding with rather annoying wait due to repeat hand check. Perhaps added security carried far."

Pros: "The check in process was much better in the CFG airport than SFO. Very organized."
Cons: "The food was mediocre on this flight. The seats also are surprisingly uncomfortable."

Pros: "the food"
Cons: "no room for legs"

Pros: "Amazing service, seat and FOOD"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Loved the lovely food and wine from Air France, they even serve fresh french bread with camembert, ice cream, champagne (in economy) and brandy with your coffee!"
Cons: "The cabin on the 777-200 was far too hot (about 25c) and with no individual air vent I found this unbearable on a 12 hour flight. And despite the flight taking place entirely during daylight hours and leaving at 10:30 am, inexplicably we were made to all pull our blinds down and the lights went off after a couple of hours - in the middle of the day and for about 8 hours! So although I had paid for a window seat there was nothing to see apart from the window shade. As it was the middle of the day I could not go to sleep, the person in front of me reclined fully so for me the flight was a hot, claustropobic, dark hell. An utterly miserable experience. I felt like I was going mad, trapped in my own little cell."

Pros: "The food, the facilities, the seat, everything."

Pros: "Boarding was fast and efficient. Flight attendant staff were friendly and very courteous."
Cons: "Vegetarian food choices are too limited. Snack and beverage availability on long flights like this are too few and far between."

Cons: "My entertainment system did not work for the whole 8 hours. Seats were uncomfortable. The lights above the seats broken."

Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "I was not given my original reserve seat and no reason was given"

Pros: "Air France is the worst company I have ever flown with. They changed our seats last minute. They where late both flights. Not worth the stress if your layovers are short. Also they took my passport with no explanation of why into another room with out my permission."

Pros: "Crew was very professional and helpful"
Cons: "Everything met or exceeded my expectations."

Cons: "Comfier seats Some entertainment...there was none. Plane very hot and claustrophobic"

Cons: "Seat didn't recline and I didn't know that at time of choosing a seat."

Cons: "Did not arrive for it"

Pros: "I had an entire row to myself so this greatly improved my experience, but if this had not been the case I don't think I would have rated my flight as high."

Cons: "It was way too hot. Our child was uncomfortable from the heat the entire trip."

Pros: "Fairly comfortable, good food. Good service, friendly boarding crew."
Cons: "My luggage was moved from the overhead compartment to another compartment much further from where I was seated. I was not informed of this and was not aware. I had to wait for all the passengers to leave while the cabin crew searched for the back. This was most unpleasant and stressful."

Pros: "Food and entertainment was good"
Cons: "90 minute wait after planned takeoff time for ‘customs’, and three different passport checks after I was already inside the international terminal at Nairobi."

Pros: "Clean plane, on-time departure"
Cons: "On this flight the meal trays stayed on the tables for over an hour (after the meal was served), should have been collected faster"

Pros: "Trip on the Dreamliner to/from Nairobi/Joburg went very smoothly. Entertainment was limited but worked and was fine for a 4 hour trip. Food was nothing great but nothing disastrous, booze was handed out willingly, staff were efficient, plane was on time - I rate it higher than SAA for the same leg and would choose KA again."
Cons: "Expensive at $800 but limited choice in Africa so what can you do?"

Pros: "The crew on the ground and flight crew were very friendly. The flight took less time than I had thought and this forced the cabin crew to rush with serving the snacks."

Pros: "Timeous and polite crew"
Cons: "The food was mediocre and no choice for entertainment, common movie or 2 low quality music channels"

Pros: "I got moved to a different airline and was not notified so when I got there over 2 hours early for KENYA FLIGHT I was hustled and bustled and BUSSED TO A DIFERENT TERMINAL at Dubai airport, then chastise, harangued and insulted by new airline staff for being "Late" and they couldn't guarantee I would make the flight. I it on board and someone else was in my seat. HE. Got bumped to first class..."
Cons: "See above...the whole experince"

Cons: "Staff on the airplane a bit miserable. Uncomfortable seats and no choice of food. Going downhill"

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: "the service was very good. The food was well done."

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

Pros: "- Short flight - Clean flight"
Cons: "- Food minimal in size and quality - Little manners staff"

Pros: "- plane was empty so I could sit in the exit seats with more legroom. - staff in the plane was extremely nice. - Pilot avoided turbulence zones."
Cons: "- Smelly cabin - Unfriendly boarding crew - Food"

Pros: "Food and service"
Cons: "Time to update, renovate and scale up the fleet flying Africa. Impossible to sleep in economy."

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: "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."

Cons: "so arrive on KQ flight from bangkok which had been delayed so missed connecting flight to arusha. Then due to a complete lack of communication within the kq staff they made me miss the next connectign flight too and then expected me to wait another 10hrs for the next available flight to arusha."

Pros: "very efficient processes and very friendly/capable flight crew."
Cons: "the food was not great (i don't have high expectations for airplane food)"

Pros: "the flight was clean, decent food, and good service."
Cons: "The Video capabilities did not work on the flights."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Extremely friendly and helpful hosts. Enough space. Overall a very rewarding way of travelling to East Africa. Will use them again. Very impressed on our flight from Johannesburg to Nairobi -- they booked our 87 year old father-in-law about 5 hours before flight time, took care of his luggage all the time, and helped him get on the flight after midnight on his own. He arrived safely with such good care!"

Pros: "The airline did not make further damage to my bag, they did not cut any more zippers like they did on outboard flight 2 weeks previous"
Cons: "Caused my airport transfer to not wait at airport for me because the flight was so late"

Pros: "Entertainment system, USB plug"
Cons: "Flight delayed more than 1h (as usual for KQ) unpleasant crew (as usual for KQ) This airline is moving form the pride of Africa to the shame of Africa."

Pros: "we got there on time and safely"
Cons: "bit of body odor coming from the crew weird temp control - freezing to hot to freezing food needs work badly"

Pros: "Food was fine, staff was professional, flight was smooth enough."
Cons: "The lavatories were not maintained well."
