Staff were very nice and professional. 🙏. International/domestic recheck was very confusing

Staff were very nice and professional. 🙏. International/domestic recheck was very confusing

Both flights were delayed by at least 1 hour which was discouraging. The boarding process was random and very chaotic.

Thieves. Took my money. Cancelled the flights and now not giving it back.

Missed connection due to a 1,5 hours delay on the first flight, resulting in 24 hours delay to destination. Poor assistance at the airport. Long wait with not even internet connection. Awful experience.

Cons: "Neither departure terminal nor gate was displaying in the application even while refreshing it continuously. The information was available in schiphol airport website 3.5 hours before take-off time."

Cons: "Goood"

Cons: "Flight was delayed nearly an hour with no announcements as to what was happening or why!"
Cons: "OUr departing flight was delayed almost 1 1/2 hours, resulting in a missed connection in Cairo -- this is not uncommon. The connecting flight waited 6 minutes, then left us. Arranging an alternative (through Rome & onward by late evening) was done , but no one was at the transfer desk for an hour."

Cons: "Plane was old, toilet was disgusting no soap, no personal entertainment option. Food was ham and cheese no other options"
Pros: "Plane in good condition"
Cons: "Seats are tight"
Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Perfect"

Pros: "The food was really great, and the crew was so helpful"
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "The plane was old, the seats were uncomfortable with no adjustable headrest or flaps to hold your head from flopping. There was no personal entertainment screens on the back of the seats, only the small community one mounted on the roof. The sound for this was terribly unclear. 8 hour boring flight."
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "3 hours delay !"
Pros: "Service not bad, other then that not good"
Cons: "Straight flight is better then connecting"

Cons: "The movie selection didn't have many classic movies."
Cons: "I’m an older disabled man and no one was polite enough to even offer to assist me with my bag getting on it off plane."
Pros: "Excellent customer service friendly, extra leg room in economy class. Great entertainment system"
Pros: "Entertainment selection was decent, I was especially impressed by the very wide variety of music to listen to. The crew were very friendly, helpful and attentive. The plane was clean and presentable, especially the lavatories. The seats were comfortable and the blankets provided worked well too."
Cons: "Food was bland and the chicken dish was dry and difficult to chew. Movie selection on the entertainment system was mediocre, with limited variety of films in general and especially limited variety in languages other than English and Arabic. A problem which I encountered on board was a big gap between the ventilation panel at the base of the wall and the flooring, through which the dessert of my meal fell and which presented the risk of losing further items. I hope this is fixed promptly."
Pros: "The hotel and the food"
Cons: "We were unable to board. They said it is over booked.my whole trip to Luxor was ruined. Paid money to Luxor tour gone wasted. They rescheduled but trip gone wasted."

Cons: "Food was boring/bland."
Cons: "Food ordinary"
Pros: "Inexpensive fair."
Cons: "Little interaction with crew"
Pros: "Helpful friendly crew."
Cons: "Planes a bit old and cramped, but otherwise comfortable."
Pros: "We had a 10 hour lay-over in Cairo and EgyptAIr shuttled us to an excellent hotel and provided lunch and dinner - all for free. This was most excellent and so much more pleasant than sitting at the airport!"
Cons: "If EgyptAir would distribute a little English sheet how the steps are, where to get the passports back (at the EgyptAir Counter in the main hall at the airport), which lines to go to (we didn't officially immigrate, but still had to go through immigration upon return, which wasn't clear). Maybe a word on legal boundaries of the status in Egypt - EgyptAir had the passport, can we go to the pyramids or not - would be useful, too."
Pros: "Great & Friendly Service"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delay 2 hours"
Pros: "Crew was lovely"
Cons: "It was all fine"
Pros: "Confortable seats, good entertainment, attentive flight crew"

Pros: "Great professional and fast"
Cons: "Couldnt take my camera in the hand bag which is unreasonable."
Pros: "excellent service excellent food great value for money"
Cons: "would like better entertainment system"
Pros: "Crew were lovely. Boarding was on time and efficient. The flight was not crowded."
Cons: "Food was fairly ordinary."
Pros: "I liked everything about the experience on the actual flight from Cairo to New York. Staff was great, food was great (two meals), drink options were great from juices, sodas, water, tea, coffee all great. the entertainment was awesome with so many movie/tv show options. and you can always get up and ask for a beverage if you were still thirsty, and plenty of toilets on the plane so rarely a line greater than 1 person."
Cons: "They seemed to run out of chicken as the dinner meal, when they got to my the flight to Cairo from NY they also ran out of chicken, the person next to me got the last one, the same thing happened to me on the way to NY, the person next to me got the last chicken, i was kind of upset but the other option of beef was still good."
Pros: "For a short hour flight, i say it was just fine, not really enough time for a movie or anything so it makes sense not to have a TV with every seat, and it is no big deal. i slept the whole way and didnt even realize we took off or landed. could be more comfortable but again i was able to sleep the whole way without a problem"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Comfortable red-eye flight to Johannesburg. Food very good and plentiful. Plane spacious and not crammed."
Pros: "Great hotel voucher program, helpful staff, overall wonderful travel experience"
Pros: "In-seat entertainment; very little turbulence experienced"
Cons: "Delayed take-off by more than half an hour"

Check in process takes to long

Both major veg meals included Paneer - seems like they are limited on vegetarian options to have to serve the same on 2 diff meals. yes these meals incl other items but 2 diff veg options would help.

I would never book Etihad ever again.

Cons: "In food and comfort"
Pros: "did not get the flight,because of no not given correct notice"
Cons: "don't know,flight missed..virgi s fault 100%"
Pros: "Great flight....enjoyed it thoroughly....."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and online entertainment system had a lot to offer. Online check-in does save time, it's a shorter queue & you just have to drop off your luggage."
Cons: "Eithad charges for seat selection now! Not seats with extra legroom or any other perks. But any seat in Economy if you select it 24 hours before departure, anywhere from $25 to $45. Seat selection is free if flight departure is less than 24 hours away but available seats are all random."
Pros: "is nice flay"
Cons: "they are ok"
Pros: "Only cleanilyness inside the plane"
Cons: "Customer service at the checkin at the airport and also the service by the flight attendant inside the plane"
Pros: "Wonderful trip"
Cons: "A little rough air, but all was good"
Pros: "every thing from the new plane until arrive it was amazing"
Cons: "nothing every thing i like it"
Cons: "They upgraded me to business since I am gold member"
Cons: "Couldn't check in online and caused me to miss my flight. Then made me buy new tickets"
Cons: "One food option.. VEGETARIAN.. when asked the crew member as to why vegetarian only.. she said not sure, but may be because most of the passengers were vegetarians.. REALLY????? Also no ice with drinks.. because they didn’t have ice!!!! But apart from this, it was another quality Etihad flight. Just didn’t expect the above inconveniences from Etihad! This is the first time I experience this with them."
Cons: "Poor service"
Pros: "Thanks. It was a pleasure to travel with such kind stewards. Thank you for honoring my request for veg(vegan) meals."
Cons: "No food and crew was so rude and Lahore airport crew not only rude also nasty"
Pros: "I asked for dental kit and flight crew gave me one."
Pros: "I'd never flown Etihad before and had a 13 hour flight followed by a 5 hour flight with them so I went in with fingers crossed for a good experience. My flight from JFK to Abu Dhabi was on an A380 and it was a spectacular plane. The crew was amazing the entertainment selection was great, the bathrooms were clean - it was a great experience."
Cons: "I have no complaints other than it would have been nice to be able to go online and have a look at my seating & have the option to change my seat. Fortunately I didn't need to change my seat but it would be nice to have the option to at least look."
Pros: "The crew das really nice"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "They moved my flight to later time on both ways."
Pros: "Not much. Free shower at the airport was welcome."
Cons: "Abu Dhabi airport is poorly designed, crowded and confusing. For some bizarre reason, we had to exit the boarding area (we had arrived very early), and then re-enter at the end of a VERY long line, then dispose of the water we had bought AFTER we had already gone through one set of security checks, to have another bag search inside the boarding area. (???) For a 14 hour flight, you might expect a bit more in the line of amenities (like the Singapore Airlines pamper kit). It’s also nice to know on a long haul what you might be eating (a la Singapore Airlines menu card), but not on Etihad. Also the movies on offer through the entertainment system were a bit stale and dated. They also had no arrivals cards in English, and finding them at Sydney Airport is a nightmare. (Why do we still do the stupid things, anyway?) Then, to top it all off, after a tiring flight, Sydney Airport put on their best demonstration of appalling and confusing crowd control at the baggage carousels and getting through customs. Used to think Etihad was a quality experience, but it doesn’t seem so any more."
Pros: "NOTHING!"
Cons: "Abysmal experience on our return flight! # Abu Dhabi Airport is so outdated and an embarassment compared to the other Regional Airports # Boarding procedure still shambolic # A330 seems old and uncomfortable - even though it is a new plane # Cabin Crew so unfriendly and sour # Toilets again disgusting within 30 minutes after taking off # Food still shockingly disgusting # Onboard entertainment still inferior to Emirates/Qatar/etc."
Pros: "Few good stores to shop at the airport, could have been better"
Cons: "No accomodation was provided. I had over 15 hours of layover and no one had the courtesy to provide neither the airlines nor the online booking agent(site- Kayak)information on pre hotel booking. I have travelled through many other airlines who provide accomodation for long layovers without prebooking on arrival. It was a very unpleasant experience with the airlines. Upon asking at the service desk for accomodation the simply denied and informed about prebooking which I had no clue about. Thank you anyways. Hope someone else doesn’t suffer like this"
Pros: "Decent plane Decent food Decent service"
Cons: "Abu Dhabi Airport Is The worst! Going through the transit area is hell. The wall of people extended out of the hall and up the stairs. Shear hell"
Pros: "Seats, Configuration, food and beverage music selection"
Cons: "Boarding process as they could not issue our connecting flight ticket lost luggage movie selection limited"
Pros: "I liked the speed of the journey"
Cons: "delayed flight passenger management of frustrated customers no compensation no apologies care of customers after long delay"
Pros: "Attention to detail"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "DO NOT under any circumstances miss an Etihad Airway flight. They'll make you pay twice the original price of your flight AND a $600 fee for missing your flight. WTF! Why must you pay $600 for missing a flight you ALREADY PAID for. I loved my first experience with Etihad but second time was not as pleasant."
Pros: "The food and the entertainment."
Cons: "The information desk had a terrible attitude towards me - the customer, and when I tried to explain to them how disrespectful they were being they continued to disrespect me once again. Also, the worker at the counter was lazy and wouldn't do his required job. Also, the new update towards the tv makes it harder for me to pause the movie I am watching or to finish the movie altogether."
Pros: "Comfort on such a long flight was much better than other airlines. Food was great"
Pros: "attentive staff"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Seating is tight"
Cons: "Luggage claim process"
Pros: "Services n hospitality"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "They need better food"
Pros: "Probably one of the more comfortable flights I've been on."
Cons: "We got rerouted through Singapore for an unscheduled stop, had a flight crew change which added 3 hours onto the flight which caused me to nearly miss my connecting flight to Bahrain. I did make the flight being the last person to board, but my bag did not."
Pros: "All ok."
Cons: "Seats seem pretty short. Only half my leg fits on them and I am not a tall person."
Pros: "on time and clean"
Cons: "leg room for the flight from Auh to lhr is really small for me. Also the food sucks."
Pros: "Service very good"
Cons: "Change in the inflight entertainment to more current programs and movies . Very poor limited choice . The toilet became out of use in the last hour of the flight . Very poor ."

Pros: "Punctual"
Cons: "Nothing not to like."
Pros: "Better food"
Pros: "I did receive my bag, even I reserve business class."
Cons: "I did receive my bag, even I reserve business class."
Cons: "The food was just ok here. And if you sit in the rear it is cold by the time or gets to you."
Cons: "appriciate co operative atitute of ground staff and crew"
Cons: "The flight from Riyadh ALWAYS leaves late. Arabs have so sense of punctuality."
Pros: "The very large windows and bathroom linoleum pattern were a nice change from what I'm used to with other Airbus and Boeing planes."
Cons: "The sink in the bathroom had a slow drainage issue and upon informing the crew, one attendant immediately went to check it out."

Loved the service .

Delay. Long wait in line. Poor communications.

Cons: "Exiting passengers from the rear exposed the entire flight as people had to walk past those seated from the back to front. Great social distancing and we'll done British Airways"
Pros: "No and no."
Cons: "Very crowded in.club class. Way lower standard for business class as compared to the other airlines."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and everything was perfectly on time!"
Cons: "4 hs delay"
Pros: "The flight was on time and landed early"
Cons: "The bags could have come out earlier and the food could be better"
Cons: "I made a mistake in my daughter's surname while booking online, BA refused ro change it at check-in and forced me to buy a new ticket for her."
Pros: "Leg room fantastic"
Pros: "Flight was not full, so despite a sub-par Business Class product the flight was very pleasant with empty seats all around"
Cons: "On line check-in/seat selection was a disaster"
Pros: "The crew were very attentive and there was a large variety of in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "I am not a heavy set guy but the seats were unreasonably close to each other, this meant that when you eat a meal your elbows push into your sides making it hard to bring food to your mouth."
Cons: "Direct flights to and from South Africa to USA not via Middle East"
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Politeness during check-in, timeliness in providing gate information, having a person at the BA desk to help, being on time"
Cons: "Very narrow seats"
Pros: "The crew, the food and the smooth journey."
Cons: "Seating is a big problem. I am only 192 cm tall and cannot really fit my legs into the space. Have them out in the corridor"
Pros: "That the flight was on time."
Cons: "not applicable."
Cons: "Seat was broken. Reclines without requesting. Tray also needs attention. Seat 15C"
Pros: "Quick boarding."
Cons: "Nothing. Pretty good for a short trip."
Cons: "Better business class seats"
Cons: "Delayed, twice!"
Pros: "New Years flight... very special. Great staff and grear entertainment on board"
Cons: "The flight data was not showing... could have been interesting especially on a New Years flight"
Pros: "This was a charter by BA. Airbus A320 with amazing legroom. Was slightly annoyed by them not having coffee ( to wake me up for the drive home) but I suppose I get why they weren’t serving hot beverages."
Cons: "The beverages thing above."
Cons: "Don’t like the business class seating configuration. The entertainment system played up and only worked in half the cabin. They tried to fix it without success"
Pros: "Polite, friendly staff."
Pros: "The A380 is roomy with large overhead bins. Its quiet and smooth. Flight was on time!!"
Cons: "It was impossible to select a seat in advance. I could not even get to seat selection at online checkin. It was very frustrating. When I went to BA in London and Los Angeles they said it was responsibility of AA and when I went to AA in London & Los Angeles they referred me back to BA. Why can I not choose seats like on other airlines????"
Pros: "BA in South Africa run a clean efficient airline. Planes are new crew well trained and food is good."
Cons: "Preseating totally random no matter your status. Booked state of my choice well in advance and was presented at the back of the plane on check-in"
Pros: "I liked that we landed 30 minutes in advance for both flights to and back, compared to the other parallel flight via SAA which was delayed 2 hours when we arrived back."
Cons: "I didn't like the cheese roll I asked for as the whole roll and cheese was literally stuck to the bottom and parts of the bottom of the roll were mushy. The staff were professional but lacked personality and seemed a little hollow."
Pros: "I liked the seats that I got. Staff were friendly and it was a comfortable flight overall."
Cons: "There wasn't enough drinks (water etc) coming around after meals."
Pros: "Food was tasty"
Cons: "Was delayed"
Pros: "Quick and efficient boarding."
Cons: "The way that the crew (both in economy on right of plane) spoke to, and handled sensitive situations with several of the passengers in a loud and rather rude manner. This is not the British way that I have been accustomed to on previous BA flights, and is rather upsetting. The crew were very abrupt in general, and did not have that seasoned and polite demeanor which I expect from BA."
Pros: "BA moved me on to the Kulula flight without any fuss and gave me a meal voucher."
Cons: "I got to the airport to find that my 19:15 flight had been delayed to 22:15. I hadn't received any notification from BA and still do not know the reason for the delay. The only other option available was for BA to put us on the 20:20 Kulula flight to Lanseria and then shuttle us from Lanseria to OR Tambo. It really is not pleasant to get back home so late on a week night and not even be given any warning or any reason for the huge delay."
Pros: "Crew were cooperative"
Cons: "There were no veg sandwiches."
Pros: "The prompt take off and landing..."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Crew were excellent. Very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Boxes under the seat in front took up legroom (but it did ensure good entertainment options). Could have offered some more drinks."
Pros: "The staff was great, friendly, helpful and professional."
Cons: "I thought the food lacked imagination, was skimpy and too hot. I burned my mouth several times. I really do not like having to pay for a booked seat. I have special needs at my age and so booking early is how I typically make sure I can access the bathrooms easily without climbing over sleeping passengers. I picked flight for the price, but in the end I should have stuck with Delta, KLM and Air France and got the extra miles as with seat bookings and only one bag allowance, what I ended up paying did not make it worth it. Oh well, live and learn. Seats were tight, anyone bigger than me would have really struggled."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew"
Cons: "My wife and I having to sit in separate seats when there were seats available next to each other. Being charged excess baggage when one suitcase was weigh under weight"
Pros: "All the normal stuff of flying domestic."
Cons: "The way that my brand new suitcase was damaged on the flight and BA just said that handles are excluded from bag damage. Thus, they can do what ever they want with your bag's handles, manhandle it and not take any responsibility. My suitcase was clearly damaged by the way it was handled since i booked it in till i received it again and they just said sorry...there is nothing we can do for you!!! Now that is is poor customer service."
Pros: "I have physical limitations and required assistance stowing overhead luggage and help getting out of seat. Crew were terrific. Wheelchair assistance also great. Travels on my own."
Pros: "Made up for time due to a big tail wind"
Cons: "Took off late and had to wait 45 minutes for luggage"
Pros: "Flight was on time,actually ahead of time."
Cons: "Aircon was not efficient. Very hot in the plane."
Pros: "The space on the A380 is nice, comfortable seats, and the crew was very considerate"
Cons: "No between meals drinks (like water, etc.) or snacks left out on this 11 hour flight. The seats are still a bit close together... for the comfort of a long legged man behind me, I was not really able to recline my chair at all."
Pros: "Aside from the typically narrow seats, the service included all the hallmarks of higher-tier service, such as hot towels, cloth napkins, a good meal, and so on. The crew was attentive, as well."
Pros: "Timely."
Cons: "The airplane was really old. The screens wouldn't start for a really long time. Very, very few options for movies and the screen and sound had terrible quality. Food was not really good."
Pros: "Staff was extremely friendly"
Cons: "Seats were too close and comfort was hard for the long flights. I wish premium economy was better explained to one world partners prior to booking so there would be access to better seats."
Cons: "$100 just to choose a seat ? $100 for a 2nd bag? A Kellogg's bar for breakfast? Shame on them."
Pros: "Strong tailwind brought us in 30mins ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Nothing. Was a smooth and friendly flight. Cabin crew were courteous and efficient."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Not a thing"
Cons: "Took forever to serve cold drinks and food. Said we were going to have a short flight due to tail wind so they would not serve hot drinks. Mean while we landed at the expected time of arrival."
Cons: "Having paid for a seat 3 months ago, I arrived at the airport to find that I was a standby passenger."

Pros: "seat not comfortable"
Cons: "more drinks along the way"
Pros: "flight was on time"
Cons: "Felt a bit like cattle because boarding was in a tight space and there was a lot of confusion as to who should stand where. Not sure why there were different zones for boarding because they didn't matter."
Pros: "Very conformable and quiet."
Cons: "Nothing very nice flight."
Cons: "It took 45 minutes for a flight attendant to respond to my call despite me calling dor assistance every 10 min. I had an issue with my tv screen and was not able to use the in flight entertainment I am very dissatisfied with such poor care and professionalism from your staff. This was something that should not have taken 45 min to get solved and even worse despite the call light being on multiple flight attendants walked by and did not even bother to question why the call light was on"
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Staff needs to be briefed on what an insulin pump is."
Pros: "Food and leg room were great"
Cons: "Entertainment was average"
Pros: "I was a bit hesitant to fly Ethiopian Air for such a long flight (Dublin to LAX) however it turned out to be the best leg of multi-segment trip (all other flights were Aer Lingus or Delta and Ethiopian Air was far superior to both of those carriers). Flight attendants were friendly, the physical space was comfortable and spacious, the food was plentiful and delicious. Movies offered were relatively new and the IFE worked well. This flight is a continuation from Addis Ababa to LAX so when we boraded in Dublin most people were already onboard. It was a bit difficult to find space in the overhead bins but with a little rearranging of smaller packages by other passengers, we were able to fit our carry-ons in the overhead bin near our seats."
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: "Old plane. Not comfortable for a relatively long flight"
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: "The services at the airport was terrible. The Booked me a flight with only a 30 minute layover. When I try telling the people before boarding the plane, big Norred me. When I told the flight attendant she said she would talk to the captain to see if there’s a way I could get a ride to my next plane so I wouldn’t miss it. That never happened. When we got off the plane no one at the airport would help us and when I was trying to run to my next terminal one of the officers at the airport told me to slow down because I wouldn’t miss the plane and I was fine. When I asked help with directions and told him I was afraid of missing my flight people laughed and walked away. When I finally found my terminal and got to it, my flight had already took off seven minutes prior. I absolutelyHated my experience flying with Ethiopian air. The seats are uncomfortable on the plane, not all the seats recline back the same level, and when I was eating dinner I decided to eat chicken since I can’t eat beef and halfway through the check in my stomach started her and I looked up the chicken and it was still pink inside."
Cons: "The whole thing was a disaster. I lost my connection flight due to incompetence from the Ethiopian airlines representative"
Pros: "Direct flight for a good price and great service"
Pros: "Boeing 737 - 800 us great"
Cons: "Waiting room at Gate 1B"

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"

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: "Boarding and the programmatically were fine."
Cons: "It was a middle of the night flight and everyone was sleeping. The lights seem to come on every hour."
Cons: "Seats were dirty"
Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "Flight crew were very nice and helpful. Plenty of room for carry on baggage."
Cons: "Veg food selections were very limited. A breakfast without meat choice would have been better than yet another rice dish. Some of the more recent movies started in the middle or near through end. Tried to rewind and restart but neither worked The toilet paper was not refilled at the stopover in Dublin and we ran out before LA!"

Cons: "One segment of my flight did not have the gluten free meal I had requested ahead of time. Super crowded."
Pros: "Plane from AA to tA seats very cramped and seats do not recline."
Pros: "It's extremely convenient to be able to fly from Manila to Addis Ababa with only one short, 1-hour stop in Bangkok with no need to change planes. And from Addis there are flights leading to multiple African destinations. So nice not to have to make connecting flights first to Hong Kong or Singapore or Kuala Lumpur. It's a very convenient airline route. The plane was a new Dreamliner 787, the staff were professional and pleasant and the food was plentiful and pretty good."
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: "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"
Pros: "on board crew members were pleasant and efficient."
Cons: "rude and dismissive ground crew. delayed flight. and when we got to Nairobi we discovered that several items had been stolennout of our checked luggage."
Pros: "Service by one attendant Helen- courteous and helpful with Dufree"
Cons: "Services by male attendant very deplorable, lacks courtesy to clients. Old aircraft with overhead TV screens showing only one channel or flight route. In this age and time, KQ can do better for the obscene amounts we pay. Flight plan changed and we were not informed till we entered the plane."
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)"
Cons: "No respect for business class customers for boarding; a separate line is not enforced. Very slow boarding generally."
