Great service

Very good flight and crew

Flight attendants were very rude. Food wasn’t that great.

It was an enjoyable flight!

Take off and landing the smoothest I have ever experienced,. The crew were awesome and their overall services excellent.

Horrible Airline. They kept me in Lagos for 2 days after I was scheduled to fly. Reason, flight has been overbooked. I am never using this airline again.

I am deaf & travel alone to India & back to Seattle via Doha by Qatar Airways. They did an awesome services, very friendly and helpful. Since we wear masks all the time during the flights, How can the air-hostess communicate with me? I came to an idea that we communicate each other through texting on my phone which was very helpful! One negative comment is that there are no closed captioning for English movies & dramas on TV. It need to add accessibility for deaf people to enjoy watching during their flights. I will fly with Qatar Airways again in the future.

That was a wonderful trip. Staff are courteous, Doha airport is awesome and flight is very clean. Asian vegetarian food stated okay but could be improved.

Comfortable flight, very kind crew. Food was average. Good night use my headset to listen to movies and music which is typical for airlines. Why not offer a subtitles on All movies? I was told to be at the airport 3 1/2 hours before flight but boarding did not start until 2 1/2 hours before flight. In ability to check in online remains frustrating

My plane tix did not come with lounge access

Pros: "Customer service and food."
Pros: "All good thank you + food and crew and entertainment"
Cons: "All good thanks"
Pros: "The crew were nice and cautious"
Cons: "I am a very experienced traveller. I always book an isle seat, especially for long flights (this was 12 hrs.), so that I can get up and stretch my legs etc. The couple sitting beside me were upset that I did not take the window seat. When it came time to sleep, the wife stretched out over her husbands legs, who was sitting beside me. This meant her feet were coming on top of my legs, and her legs were forcing her husbands legs into my space, touching my leg - I had to put a pillow between my leg and his leg. I asked the Qatar hostess if she could please ask the couple to change their positions, so that my seating space was respected, resulting in no body touching. The hostess replied that she was not permitted to ask the couple to change their positions and be more respectful. Fortunately there was another unreserved isle seat and I was able to move. Due to the fact that airplanes have become cultural melting pots, thousands of feet in the air, I think it would be peacefully beneficial too all, if a very discreet announcement could be made at the beginning of each flight regrading seating etiquette, respectfulness towards others etc. this could also be printed in the flight magazine. Thanks in advance."
Pros: "The THOUGHT it would be a nice flight than usual from Asia to the USA, but it wasn't. Doha Airport was an interesting stop early I'm the morning"
Cons: "No outlets on either flight or in the airport so can't use electrics for almost the entire trip. The seats are extremely narrow to the point out of unprobabability to have your own space even if sitting next to regular build person. Food was only ok and service was below average with trash often not collected and needing to request water etc"
Pros: "the attention in general for me was excellent."
Cons: "may be the fact that it was the same kind of food in both of the flights I had, is not that it was bad just in my opinion they should have more option, especially for south american people, thank you"
Pros: "The Crew The food"
Cons: "Transiting. Made to stay in the airport for over 8hours after a 9hr 35mins flight. I was not happy about it. I hope that, on the return journey, when transiting time would be over 10hours, i would be lodged in a hotel. Thank you."
Pros: "Overall"
Cons: "Overall"
Cons: "Horrible customer service."
Pros: "Great crew members. Very friendly and helpful. Qatar Airways is great about providing pillows, blankets, ear plugs and eye masks. Really good food as well."
Cons: "The seats were very close together. With the tray folded out it was right against me without being extended. Leg room was cramped."
Pros: "Exceptional staff, nothing too much trouble. The aircraft is new and all facitlies great. Will fly with Qatar again"
Pros: "Comfort of the seat/bed"
Pros: "The airline stewardesses were Fabulous! Especially one from Doha to Cape Town. Food was good and more than enough to eat. I was impressed by the scheduled meals and drink offers , very important for a dietetic"
Cons: "No leg room, can't stretch your legs properly so my bad knee was in pain"
Cons: "I did not like the fact that on now 3 flights I have lost miles, as on every flight I have tried to sign on as a member or frequent flyer and on all flights, there were no entry forms. This is also after my attempt to complete one on line, which I have had no response to."
Pros: "The flight went fairly smooth, the staff were courteous and the food was as good as can be expected of airline food. There were several courses and options, which is always appreciated."
Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"
Pros: "Crew are great and entertainment options are good."
Cons: "The seats are quite uncomfortable and small. Really struggled to get comfortable."
Pros: "it was nice on the plane the guests were professional"

Pros: "Like the friendly Crew ..."
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Because of poor connection, arrived for flight 15 min. before departure. Gate agent wouldn't allow us to board and wouldn't help us rebook. Offered no help."
Pros: "The staff were welcoming and friendly. Their customer care is second to none. The food is excellent and i ate throughout my flight."
Cons: "The comfort was a bit below my expectations. Sitting on the seats along the isle was uncomfortable as they are closely placed. There is no enough room to move and to lean sideways when one wants to sleep. My tv was not working. The touch screen was not responding. However the friendly flight attendants shifted me to a vacant seat where the tv was working. The movie selection was limited. There were no documentaries about wildlife. Sport was also missing. We also need some news channels like Aljazeera, CNN & BBC so that we keep updated on issues happening throughout the world. This is very important especially to people like me who traveled long distances from South Africa to Los Angeles USA."
Cons: "I am hard of hearing. It would be appreciated it you would offer more movies with English subtitles."
Pros: "The plane was neat, clean and the services was world class. I was made to feel at home with service always at my finger tips."
Cons: "Nothing to report."
Pros: "Friendly crew, comfortable plane"
Cons: "Luggage lost, unhelpful Kigali Helpdesk. Johannesburg VERY helpful"
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Customer services"
Cons: "Time was never kept. we had a delay in LGW for more than 2 hrs. I had a 17hrs layover in Kigali. I was not aware that i would not be booked in a hotel to rest. I had to make my own arrangements. And another extended delay out of Kigali to Nairobi"
Pros: "I was happy to avail of Wifi in the sky."
Cons: "No entertainment! For an major international flight, one expects some seatback entertainment"
Pros: "New plane, fresh feel. Food is ok."
Cons: "Airline feels basic and no frills."
Pros: "Took the newly opened route between Cape Town and Harare. Was a great experience. Thanks to RwandAir it is easier and cheaper to fly directly between these African cities. Lots of potential on the route. RwandAir really opening up business and leisure opportunities much needed in these areas. Nice to avoid Tambo airport."
Cons: "Both flights were slightly delayed (which happens), information about the delay could be better at Harare airport. But no biggy."
Pros: "The Flight attendants are all awesome and undesrtanding...and the open wifi ate Kigali airport was great."
Cons: "No vegetarian option Bad boarding procedures, no one gets direction and it was very slow"
Pros: "Food and in-flight services"
Cons: "Entertainment package"
Pros: "Rwanda Air is the best"
Cons: "Landing at Kigali was bit rough"
Pros: "The planes and shuttles are nice and clean, and the staff are pleasant. I had a long layover in Kigali and the airline gave me accommodation and a food voucher (totally unexpected). Will definitely fly RwandAir again."
Pros: "Food and free WiFi. Ample seating space."
Cons: "Rerouted through Dar-es-Salaam at last minute rather than being a direct flight as scheduled"
Pros: "That there were not many people on the second leg and that the plane was clean"
Cons: "The fact that we had an itinerary change with an extra stop (unannounced until 15 minutes before I boarded the flight) that delayed us by 1+ hours, that we were delayed from leaving Kigali by 1.5 hours and none of the crew could explain what was going on, that the rwandair staff was rude. I mean... It's Rwanda so I didn't expect much customer service (they are generally particularly bad by African, European, Asian or American standards) and I definitely wasn't impressed"
Pros: "Everything was perfect. On time arrival."
Cons: "Loud Nigerian co-passengers"
Pros: "Nice blankets. Good service."
Cons: "Food wasn't that great and juices were very sweet (tasted like sugar water)"
Pros: "Good and clean planes, good service"
Cons: "We had couple of ours delay and not well communicated"
Cons: "We incurred significant extra costs (visas, taxi, hotel costs) because Rwandair changed our flights around from what we had originally booked, with no compensation or help navigating the visa process."
Pros: "Friendly staff, decent snacks and entertainment options"
Pros: "New airline. Left 20 mins early."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "The food options were unclear- they didn't announce what was in each meal, aside from the type of meat. It wouldn't kill you to have a vegetarian option on hand either, especially since your website doesn't work."
Pros: "Landing was very smooth. I got window seat as requested."
Cons: "My bags were mistagged and almost sent to Lagos instead of Nairobi. The agent noticed the error after the second bag was tagged. He went to search for my first bag that already went down the ramp. Although I gave him the exact description of the bag (purple hard case), he retagged the wrong one (red soft case). Good thing he took a photo. Third try was the charm but shouldn't have happened in the first place. Agents need to be more diligent with where they are sending bags and to double- and triple-check before he luggage is sent down the ramps."
Pros: "Information during flight"
Cons: "No TV or programmes to entertain slong"
Pros: "Good"
Pros: "on schedule. staff at counters and flight crew were courteous and professional."
Cons: "The airline moved my original non-stop flight forward by 3 hours. The new flight conflicted with another flight I had earlier in the day. The airline would not allow me to cancel the flight, and could only offer me a 1-stop flight that arrived at my destination hours after my initial flight would have arrived."
Pros: "Very slow check in. Bit slow and chaotic at gate. Pleasant enough service but not excetional. Smooth flight. Informative pilot. Silly short bus ride to terminal. Very very long wait for baggage."
Pros: "Good food, friendly and professional staff, a new and sparkling clean plane, swift retrieval of luggage upon arrival in Kigali. Thank you!"
Pros: "Overall comfort and staff friendliness"
Cons: "Landing was a bit turbulent"
Pros: "Flight was delayed over an hour. Otherwise the plane was new, everything felt good, and I have nothing to complain about!"
Pros: "Rwanda air crew"
Cons: "Lagos international airport"
Pros: "The staff at the airports were friendly."
Cons: "After thorough check (and hours at the airport) at the holiday destination, Dubai, my luggage was deemed lost. The DXB lost luggage staff helped me complete a 'lost luggage' report. However, the staff member told me that 'if' RwandAir found my luggage, I would be responsible for going to the airport as RwandAir does not have lost luggage delivery like most airlines. For the six days of my holiday, I waited for phone calls and checked emails expecting to hear from RwandAir. I heard nothing, RwandAir had made no effort of any kind to locate my luggage they had mishandled. Upon flying back home, I checked with the initial airport (DXB), the transit airport (Kigali), and my final destination airport (Brazzaville). My luggage was not in any of the airports mentioned. In each airport, and the RwandAir office at the Brazzaville airport, I presented the initial lost luggage form from the prior week and it was apparent that nobody, no airport, and no office was interested in finding my luggage. RwandAir, at no point, apologized for losing my belongings or in any way attempted to make up for seriously harming my holiday- not to mention the fact that it appears I will never see my possessions that were last seen being taken by RwandAir staff at the beginning of my holiday travels."
Pros: "New plane, friendly crew"
Cons: "Cramped seating, poor signage & boarding announcements"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Time management"
Cons: "No entertnainment"
Pros: "I like the overall service in the plane."
Cons: "I didn't like changing the boarding time."
Pros: "Planes were great and flight crew excellent."
Cons: "On arrival at Kigali airport we were quickly moved through security to the departure area. This area was hot and without any facilities for toilets or water. We sat there for at least 1 hour and was a low light in out trip."
Pros: "Clean, comfortable plane and seating. On time service, courteous attendants. A meal served on a flight that was only about an hour in duration - very nice. Very pleased with this airline."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "The crew is nice"
Cons: "Both flights were terribly delayed and while the crew apologized we sat on a small plane. In Entebbe the reason was they overbooked the flight. So leave those people behind to take the next flight, don't keep us prisoners on a plane for hours... Stupid management decisions."
Cons: "Too cold on the plane - way, way too cold"
Cons: "We were delayed by 1 hour because more cargo was being loaded on to the plane. When we arrived in Kigali, we found that our bags had been left behind to make room for other cargo. We arrived and checked in well before the 1 hour cutoff and we were under the weight limit, so there was no reason for our baggage to be left behind. We were informed that our bags would NOT be delivered to us at our next destination, that the burden was on us to retrieve them AND there was no stipend or any type of refund to compensate us for the inconvenience. Since we were continuing our travel by road to Uganda, we had to pay extra to have a driver return to the airport the next day to retrieve and deliver our bags. This is very, very poor customer service!"
Pros: "The Rwandair plane was modern and clean. Kigali airport has a nice cafe, and check-in was efficient. The plane left a few minutes early."
Cons: "Check-in closes one hour before your flight. Economy class: Food was a clingwrapped sandwich. The attendant gave me two bottles of a good South African wine. Security has gotten quite uptight at Kigali airport. They now stop your cab a couple hundred meters short of the airport, and have a dog check the vehicle. You have to pass through another security checkpoint at the entry to the airport building, and a third security into the boarding area. The final security check even takes away any empty bottles you have. And don't take any fingernail scissors in your handcarry, even if they have blunt points. You may have an hour or more wait in preboarding, and without water or bathroom excess. So takke care of these needs in advance."
Pros: "Crew were pleasant. The flight was comfortable."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, causing me to miss a connecting flight. Boarding was a bit confusing as multiple flights were departing from Kigali airport at the same time and same airline. Information was not conveyed clearly and it might have been easy to begin boarding the wrong flight."
Pros: "The flight times were perfect and the seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The food was just ok"
Pros: "Everything was excellent, service, cabin, food."
Cons: "First announcement cockpit was just before landing. Would have liked some information before takeoff and once in the air"
Pros: "Orderly, organized, courteous"
Pros: "In general, it was a pleasant flight from Entebbe to Kigali. The Bombardier was in pristine condition. There was no food offered (the flight is 45 minutes) and there is no entertainment available. The crew was pleasant and the seat comfortable (I am 5'11). I would fly again with RwandAir."
Cons: "There was nothing significant enough taken into consideration the characteristics of this flight and the construction in Entebbe."
Pros: "Very professional - gave us a good meal - although flight was a little more than an hour. Will recommend to friends"
Cons: "Service & good landing"
Pros: "Unfortunately i missed the flight from kla to Nairobi via Entebbe due to closue of Entebbe Road. Return from Nairobi was okey but was delayed for about 40 minutes"
Cons: "Food needs to be addressed"
Pros: "They were professional, timely and courteous. Except for one flight attendant who was a bit rude, the entire flight was enjoyable"
Cons: "The rude flight attendant who was welcoming people to the plane"
Pros: "They have great food, amazing crew, great customer care.."
Cons: "No entertainment, some few crew members has a bit of an attitude."

Customer service.

Pros: "Nice crew and good service"

Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "big screens, big movie selection, nice drink options, good menu"
Cons: "very small seats! hot on plane, with no optional vents, flight staff did not respond to multiple call button requests"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Liked that they moved me to a better seat - was sitting next to a cranky old Turkish man - who complained every time we brushed his legs getting into our seats- he refused to stand to let us into our seats- I said this is not gonna work and they found me a great seat with some normal passengers."
Cons: "Food was just ok, plus it’s a longer trip - I understand they kill the lights to let people sleep but offering more drinks - soda and water would b nice - rather than having to go to back and beg- they know who is awake and watching movies - b nice to ask."
Cons: "The airport in Turkey had no a/c it was sweltering and packed. It smelled to high hell. Boarding was crazy with people shoving and pushing and cutting each other to get throug"
Cons: "Departure gate to far to get to! Changed gates didn’t notify on time . Waiting at gate to long."
Pros: "Sleeping accommodations, storage, crew attentiveness in business class was outstanding. 5he business lounge in Istanbul was the best ever. Great airline."
Pros: "I'll recommend Turkish airline to anyone because of the cabin crew and the pilots. I enjoyed the service and we had a safe trip. I also like the entertainment service. I was able to watch the live TV news to keep me update."
Cons: "I didn't like the food. It's taste sour. The foods needs improvement."
Pros: "Excellent food excellent services"
Cons: "Not prompt and boarding wasn’t great .."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "After bus arrived at steps kept on it 20 mins. 2 more buses arrived in this time. Still wait. Then let out all at once. Massive queues to board. Poeple not dressed for this. Poor babies crying Maybe 15 mins waiting in 2am cold on tarmac."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Would highly recommend"
Cons: "The flight wasn’t on time it was delayed for 2 hour , and the landing was very scary"
Pros: "Polite crew and staff, comfortable enough for economy"
Cons: "Special meal wasn’t correct at first, crew corrected the mistake but the meal was absolutely terrible. Had the no lactose meal and it tasted exclusively of stewed tomatoes. Pack a lunch and don’t rely on the airport at Istanbul, there’s no options for people with food restrictions."
Pros: "The service from istanbul to dublin route"
Cons: "Bad service from bahrain to istanbul"
Pros: "Quality of Service"
Cons: "-"
Pros: "The best airline to Europe! Period! Boing in the new 777 and has very comfortable seats with plenty of room for your feet even in economy class. Huge number of movies and TV shows. The food is excellent. Only missing part is to have some candies or chocolates for the 13 hour trip for San Francisco to Istanbul. You can not beat their price. Crew is very friendly and helpful at the same time. Slippers and socks they give you in economy class + cotton blanket of course make you feel you are 1st class traveler. What else? You name it and it is there. Will fly again with Turkish airlines."
Pros: "The entertainment and food was good."
Cons: "Delayed for almost 2 hours before boarding; and this problem of no USB to charge phones from Abuja to Istanbul is a frequent problem, old fashioned seat and aircraft. Some of the air hostess were mean and hoarding foods.Nigerians patronize Turkish Airlines a lot. Turkish Airlines need to improve better and treat customers right."
Pros: "Boarding started 40 minutes later than stated on my boarding pass. Had to take a bus to the airplane and the ride was not exactly short - I'm pretty sure the plane was parked at the very other end of the airport. When we finally took off it was exactly an hour later than scheduled. That's the first time I've had a delay longer than the actual flight."
Cons: "Wi fi"
Pros: "friendly service, excellent crew, comfortable seats Actually it was my daughter recommendation to fly Turkish Airlines as she flies it almost exclusively We love Turkish Airlines As for Istanbul airport, I had an excellent experience while transiting. Well equipped, clean, nice restaurants and food Good experience overall I loved my flight"
Cons: "turbulence throughout but this is beyond your control I know, we just had nasty weather not on our way from Los Angeles to Istanbul though"
Pros: "The staff are friendly the food is great and their are lots of options, there is nothing to buy, everything is included in your ticket price (entertainment, games, movies, food, snacks, drinks, including alcohol) as well as a complementary travel bag with a sleeping eye mask, slippers and toothbrush and toothpaste. I couldn't be happier. I will seek out Turkish Airlines now every time I fly!"
Cons: "nothing, it was the best flying experience I have ever had!"
Pros: "Surprising level for such a short flight."
Pros: "Good selection of entertainment, comfortable seats."
Pros: "The meals were delicious The crew was so kind and paid attention to detail They passed gifts out during flight They made sure our needs were met The best airline experience I've ever had"
Cons: "Food was dried out and tasteless"
Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "I used the prime lounge in Istanbul and when it was time to go, I was able to practically walk on the plane without any wait. The seats were comfy and didn't have a ton of legroom but it wasn't bad. The staff we're friendly and helpful. The in-flight entertainment had a pretty impressive selection and had one of the best-designed interfaces I've seen so far (and I've ridden a variety of airlines). Last and most important, the food was hands down the BEST I've had on a plane. Turkish is killing it, they're my new go-to airline!"
Cons: "I really can't complain about anything, even if I try! Maybe the touch screen sensitivity on the entertainment console seemed a little off, but that's just nitpicking"
Pros: "Food is bad.no other word is fitted. All the rest is good."
Pros: "The flight and in-flight services were good."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours with minimum information and no apology. We missed our connecting flight and the ground staff in Istanbul was not very helpful. The people at the so called Welcome center/care point were fownright rude."
Cons: "Airport in Turkey is a big mess. Too many checkpoints that make no sense"
Pros: "Everything was good and smooth"
Cons: "When arriving to instabul. I had to go through security twice. Once to transfer to another gate which is fine and then right at the gate I had to go through security which was really weird. It made the flight delay thank god because I thought the plane would leave because the line was long and super slow"
Pros: "So quick boarding"
Cons: "No entertainment due to "technical issues" Also old fashioned entertainment system with different channels older plane"
Pros: "Honestly, not very much. The Entertainment system kind of worked, although the touch screen barely worked, and the movie selection was mediocre."
Cons: "Very old plane, with barely any leg room, poorly functioning seats that didn't recline--and when others recline, I couldn't even open my tray table. The crew was incredibly rude and generally unhappy to help--a consistent show of attitude, as if WE were a pain to service, when just asking for water/tea because they kept skipping us! The food also was really bad, nothing like it used to be. By far the worst Turkish Airlines experience I've had, and I may reconsider booking in the future."
Pros: "I liked the movie choices"
Cons: "The second pasta dish with red sauce gave me food poisoning. I threw up on the plane, at the airport, 9' the way home, and when I was at home. I had to miss work the next day due to your food. Also, there was not enough trash collection service"
Pros: "Excellent carrier, modern planes and good food on board Also on european flight a proper meal and inflight entertainment"
Cons: "Leg space a nighrmare!! Was uncomfortable for all the 13 hrs of the flight. Terrible experience"
Pros: "It was a 12 or 13 hour flight and except for sitting too much we were never uncomfortable. The service level made me think we were back in the 80's. Hot towels, attentive service, tons of food and free drinks. There was actually one meal that we would have eaten even if it wasn't on a plane. They gave out full size blankets and pretty fluffy pillows. (I bring our own anymore, because you never know if you will get one on most airlines, and if you do they're usually useless). Their entertainment system was amazing. We caught up on all the recently released movies that we've wanted to see for FREE! If only Netflix had this quality of movie offerings. They had fresh flowers in the huge bathrooms. It's that type of attention to detail you just really don't see anymore."
Cons: "Can't think of a thing that could actually be changed."
Pros: "Service when it was done"
Cons: "Infrequent service Crowded Entertainment system bad"
Pros: "Same as above."
Pros: "The crew was extremely polite and pleasant. We felt welcomed and taken care off."
Cons: "It was an old plane and it was not possible to see the tv monitors."
Pros: "The flight was smooth (good pilots) and the service was great."
Cons: "The space between seats."
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "I liked almost everything. The plane was clean and the seats looked new. Of course, space in the economy section can be tight but it is not worse than any other airline I have experienced. The entertainment was awesome with a wide selection of movies, tv and music options. I was even able to watch the primary debates LIVE from my seat which was amazing. The crew was amazing and very attentive. They made sure to provide us with whatever we needed and were always polite. This was the second time I have flown with Turkish Airlines and my experience was the same if not better this time around."
Cons: "Leg room in economy line."
Cons: "It’s a hop and a skip, just 2 1/2 hours. But. Nice flight"
Pros: "Good size screen."
Cons: "Check in Lagos."
Pros: "The crew was good and friendly. The seat was good for a domestic business class"
Cons: "The food was not good. Chicken was very overcooked and the mashed potatoes tasted like they came from a box"
Cons: "Various tv screens would not stay in place in row 47 where I was sitting"
Pros: "Business Class on the Code Share, South African Air was superb"
Pros: "Was surprised with a meal and all beverages were free including alcohol."
Cons: "Entertainment limited to predetermined programming on screens every 5th row or so."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and now one wanted to help in order to make my connecting flight in Johannesburg to Windhoek. I missed it with 5 minutes."
Cons: "I was not allowed to bring my carry-on luggage on to the plane. Even though I was permitted to carry it on the in-bound flight. When I surrendered my bag at the plane's door I was assured that it would be safe. Once I got to JFK and passed through customs, I retrieved my bag and the Laptop was gone!"
Pros: "Cabin crew was matter-of-fact and efficient. Certainly cordial but did not do anything special. Cockpit crew, on the other hand, was exceptionally friendly an informative. Landing was phenomenally smooth."
Cons: "Cabin crew just too still and smiles are just so artificial and robotic! Train for more of a customer-centred attitude."
Cons: "Business class was a joke"
Cons: "Bumpy landing Delayed departure"
Pros: "I loved the fact that there was good leg room - it felt more like premium economy to me. The boarding was timely - no delays at all The food options were good and they had other generous items in addition. I enjoyed the flight, the temperature was just right."
Pros: "The last leg of our trip was very comfortable, modern seats, pleasant service, and great food."
Pros: "I cannot say enough about the service from South Africa! Always smiling, always helpful and saying it’s their pleasure when you say thank you. It is top notch!"
Cons: "Can’t think of anything"
Cons: "Was delayed by and hour and given a bad seat even though I am a premier member"
Pros: "We landed"
Cons: "Delayed departure No priority luggage handling (not in Iohannesburg and not in Cape Town). Luggage was marked “Priority” by carrier but it came out last off both legs. Not sure that works. Seated a super sized human in middle seat; this person could not even open the tray fully. Overflow several inches into my seat. Made for a very uncomfortable last 2 hours of a long journey."
Pros: "Quiet and smooth ride"
Pros: "Liked the flight crew"
Cons: "Hated the meal, hated not having power, hated the uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Airplane, crew and flight were great."
Cons: "Hoedspruit airfield is very rudimentary and had no air conditioning"
Cons: "Terrible experience with a kayak agent! I need my money back!"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and South African was completely unable to accommodate."
Pros: "The vibe was happy and welcoming and the cabin was clean. Overall it was a well managed flight and friendly staff throughout the plane. Enjoyable and relaxing"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Nothing really great stood out. Normal trip"
Cons: "They lost my bags. Also the staff failed to properly ticket us for a new flight and were told to just run to the gate. The gate person was confused and it just made the whole event stressful."
Pros: "They waited for the several people who were running behind because of the delayed flight."
Cons: "There was a maintenance issue that delayed us another 40 minutes that would've been nice if they'd checked for it while they were waiting for the late arrivals."
Pros: "Good space and legroom."
Cons: "Option to get more food would have been better since I just got off a long flight. Tray for food and laptop was broken."
Pros: "I enjoyed the flight. The cabin crew were fantastic. Good assistance in Johannesburg."
Cons: "My boarding in Nigeria was crazy. Some of the staff were seeking for bribe and they almost made me miss my flight. I had to start running just to get on the plane when I arrived 3hrs before time. It is really disappointing. I have flew Emirates and Qatar airways before and did not experience such."
Cons: "Check-in gates open at 3!? So I have to light luggage around London. The crew wasn't the friendliest, and there were more excuses than help on the flight. The in-flight entertainment and the remote did not work. I had 11 hours of staring into space cause I couldn't the reading light on Twice my in-flight entertainment was reset and on both occasions no crew came to check if it was really fixed."
Cons: "Continued to lose my luggage."
Pros: "Fast flight, meal was unexpected but nice. SAA is helping me find my lost bag from another flight which is great."
Pros: "The flight itself was comfortable and the service attentive."
Cons: "Poor connection in JHB - Immigration at O R Tambo chaotic and took more than 95 minutes. Nearly missed this connecting flight to Cape Town. Literally ran from terminal A to B with my on board luggage over my shoulder. I had rechecked my main bag for the domestic flight but, nevertheless, it was left in JHB and had to be forwarded on a later plane. The folks meeting me in Cape Town had to wait an extra hour at the airport to collect it. Very unsatisfactory. As the national airline, SAA should pressure O R Tambo into improving their terrible immigration services."
Pros: "Very pleasant flight attendants. Extremely clean plane. Quick and smooth flight. Overall very pleasant"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "On time Courteous, profesional"
Cons: "Sliced chicken loaf, with rice salad"
Pros: "The rest of the flight was good."
Pros: "Didn't make it."
Pros: "Went as scheduled"
Pros: "Good food, friendly crew, clean airplane."
Cons: "Flight was delayed but no announcement was ever made about the delay or the gate change that occurred. Very confusing to have one person walking around telling a few people here and there what the flight status was. Should have been informing everyone at the same time."
Cons: "Ground staff was rude when we were going to miss our scheduled flight and needed to be rescheduled. Then because they refused to help me rebook, I had to pay a "no show" fee (even though I was standing right in front of them at the airport), as well as a rebooking fee."
Pros: "Hospitaliy"
Cons: "Toilets were clean"
Pros: "leather seats were nice, airplane was clean"
Cons: "if asked for something, it felt like the crew didn't want to be bothered"
Pros: "Boarding and depature from South Africa was good. The staff and crew were proffessional and were on time"
Cons: "There was no information about the need for a yellow fever card on our departure from south africa. The boarding and departure from Nigeria was delayed due to a system been offline. this led to connecting flights been missed. This is not the first time this has happened on the Nigerian end and this needs to be addressed. SAA staff and crew are known to be proffessional and on time but the ground staff and crew in Nigeria are nothing but incompetent. This needs to be addressed."
Cons: "Boarding was messed up with wrong information on the monitors, 2 lines formed. Service was not ok considering it was business class."
Cons: "Good, chairs"
Pros: "The flight was delayed due to an aluminium container hitting the aircraft on the ground. The captain kept informing and reassuring us on regular basis."
Pros: "Nothing at all beside less hours. Everything horrible"
Cons: "They changed the gate 45mins before my flight. There was no announcement or anything even thou they lied they said they did. They told me i have to pay over 600+ dollars to get on the next flight even thou i had my boarding pass for the flight i missed. No customer service or No supervisor at night."
Pros: "Efficient boarding and polite staff"
Cons: "Entertainment was terrible and on repeat. Also, I was seated next to an obese man who spread into my seat. Such passengers should be seated next to no one. It was a terrible experience."
Pros: "The seats were way more comfortable than the first (and longer) leg of the trip. The staff was incredibly kind and attentive."
Cons: "The entertainment system wasn't activated :/"
Cons: "This flight never happened and South African Airlines knew it was cancelled, yet we did not receive a notification. Instead, I lost a day of travel in Cape Town. I had to be re-routed through Johannesburg and then to Cape Town. Both flights were late and my luggage came in on the wrong plane. An absolutely nightmare of an experience."
Pros: "Plane had nicely redone interior decoration"
Cons: "Usually SAA has a veg option for food, but this time it was beef or chicken."
Pros: "Seats were much more comfortable - wider and at better angle than Etihad."
Cons: "Entertainment was lacking"
Pros: "I liked that they were efficient and friendly."

I checked in online but I have to wait on queue at the airport again. Abuja airport should be digitalized.

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

Surprise hour long stop in Cairo? It was the middle of the night, maybe we saw the pyramids? But otherwise a pretty rough experience.
