Pros: "The crew was excellent, the food good."
Cons: "The entertainment system, in three out of four long flights, did not work. In the one that "worked", the sound was terrible and this made the experience totally unsatisfactory. A major airline should avoid this."

Cons: "Very disorganized the gate checking, staff ne d hospitality training . You ESP not have time for your queries and concerns . They are always in a hurry to finish talkign to you . Poor hygiene.

Cons: "The plane was uncomfortably warm throughout the (long!) flight, which made it difficult to get any rest."
Pros: "The flight was excellent, with good food and good service. The crew was very professional and courteous."
Cons: "Our experience in the Istanbul airport. We got off our connecting flight and no one was willing to provide us with directions. We had to stand in a security line for two hours thinking that we had as a consequence missed our connecting flight. Again, no communication. We found out when we finally got through security (we had already gone through security at the Paris airport), everyone was in the same situation and our flight had been delayed. It would have been helpful to know that as we were standing in line. While in the line, many people panicked and starting pushing their way to the front of the line. Again, no officials were there to keep order. It was truly a mess! And creating too much anxiety and stress that I really wanted to not have on my trip back to the USA. I realize that in these times, we must go through added security, but I am accustomed to US airports where there is more communication over the intercom and by airport officials. In Istanbul, it seemed that everyone did not want to give directions, and airport officials seemed to avoid the public they were there to serve."
Pros: "The flight was good. The food tasted great. They had some good movies I haven't seen yet. The flight attendants were constantly up and down the isles either giving you something or taking away trash. The leg room was sufficient."

Pros: "love the food and the crew service."
Cons: "Aircon could have been better. Someone got sick during the flight because of that."
Cons: "I have lactose intolerance and I tried ordering the special meals. However the lactose free meals are not good. I got it more than once, it's always dry grilled chicken, steamed veggies and plain rice. Overall it's a dry meal and no flavorful at all. On this trip I didn't order a special as I was hoping one of the options wouldn't have lactose."

Pros: "Lots of crew members Pay attention Food was good"
Cons: "The boarding was chaotic"
Pros: "The food and entertainment on the plane"
Cons: "The Turkish Airlines staff can be very rude, non-communicative in passing along information. They do not like you to ask questions nor do they want to answer your questions. They yell at you or just simply ignore you. No legroom. The crew did not mention that are flight was delayed prior or that we missed our connecting flight and what to do from there. I was given a hotel room during my layover but its in a scary neighborhood and it smells like sewage is nearby. The Grand Yavaz. The cheaper price is not worth the hassle. I can spend my good money elsewhere...i will be sure to warn others."
Pros: "I eventually arrived at the destination."
Cons: "Difficult to communicate with cabin crew due to lack of English. Flight was delayed by 1 hour. General atmosphere on plane was chaotic I think due to the small plane and length of flight as large numbers of people needed to use toilets."

Pros: "i love the movies"
Cons: "The cabin crew was rude and disorganized"
Pros: "The friendly atmosphere, and the choice of food and drink."

Pros: "Every thing. The overall service in economy is equal to business class on American carriers, with the obvious exception of the seat itself. A light breakfast meal on a 45 minute flight? Absolutely incredible. I've also experienced this with Lufthansa in the past, but they didn't have seat-back entertainment on short flights."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike."
Cons: "Small food/entertainment selection, jarring landing, inattentive baggage handlers."
Pros: "The food was great, had a chance to sample some Turkish cuisine. Way better food than any meal you would get from an American-based airline.

Pros: "Nice experience except for the delay in Dubai."
Cons: "Any delay would have been nice. we really had to run a lot in El Cairo Airport in order to catch the conection flight to Madrid."
Pros: "Big plane, multiple boarding points. Food did its job & helped with the long flight. Movies weren't expansive, but good choices to kill the time."
Cons: "The crew did not have the key to unlock to doors leading to the plane, which forced everyone to wait 30 mins standing in line. It was quite silly! It delayed our flight about 30-45 minutes - not much, but really painful when the flight is almost 12 hours. The crew didn't tell us what was happening either, but it was pretty obvious."
Pros: "Service was good Airplane was good .while some European air lines are cutting on service Egypt Air was generous. Entertainment was good too."

Cons: "Not possible to print boarding pass, even at Luxor airport counter from where we originated, which means we could not use transfer service at Cairo and has to que again for all security and checkin lines. I checked in online but airline changed our seating without telling us. Egypt Air created this airline only for flights to Tel Aviv, so difficult to find checkin counters. One feels they don’t encourage people to take the flight."

Cons: "Upgrade the airplanes"
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."

The site did not reflect it either. I left work on the second day to go check and there it was, under a few other bags, which gave the impression it had been there waiting a day already. Going to try and avoid Kenya airways in the future if possible."

Pros: "My travel itinerary was one with long layover times. Thank you Kenya, Airways for allowing the day use of your lounge areas for a fee. Got some sleep, a wonderful Turkey Lunch on Christmas Day, before my connecting flight to Guangzhou. Smooth Short field landing and take off in the 787-8. No rattling sounds during landing and take off so the Plane must have also been new. Kudos!!"
Cons: "Suffered with the unattended toilets. Food for thought, could the toliets on flights be designated according to gender? toilet seat was always covered in sprayed urine( which I wiped clean every time before sitting and using the toilets, made several trips during the 9 hour flight. Hand Soap run out at some point."
Pros: "I was surprised at how good the food was. Really surprised to run into someone I knew from a previous trip to Kenya. She was assisting a handicapped person, so don't know if she worked for Kenya Airways or the airport. Unfortunately, there was no time to talk."

Cons: "Choice of dish - fish ( was like rubber) or beef"
Pros: "Plane was a new Dreamliner and nice to fly in with excellent entertainment package."
Cons: "I had 3 hours in Johannesburg before catching a shuttle bus, so being an hour late wasn't a big problem. After rushing from Entebbe flight which was an hour late leaving and arriving, I got to the gate to be informed that this NBO to JNB flight was an hour late in departing. Pilot said it was due to "technical difficulties". My ticket had 4 legs : Nov 28 due to leave JNB at 1:20 finally left at 8:30 due to NBO runway closed from plane belly landing - the pilot was very apologetic - LATE. Dec 5 NBO to Entebbe was an hour late due to "passenger problem and luggage taken off" - LATE. Dec 10 Entebbe to NBO left an hour late due to "plane arriving late" - LATE. Dec 10 NBO to Johannesburg was an hour late due to "technical difficulties" - LATE. All 4 flights were at least an hour late leaving and arriving yet the pilots all said thanks for flying Kenya Airways - the Pride of Africa. This is what Africa should be proud of ?!? and Kenya Airways is proud of ?!? Passengers I talked to all were negative in their comments about Kenya Airways. All said there is ALWAYS something of a problem on a Kenya Airways flight. Lady on NBO to EBB flight next to me as we boarded plane and I said everything has gone smoothly so far, replied - the flight isn't over yet - and then we sat in the plane for an hour while they "removed passengers luggage". A man in NBO departure area as we waited to board JNB late flight said, the procedures and organisation are terrible with problems most of the time, which was why he was using up his reward miles because he didn't want to fly Kenya Airways again. This is the culture of this airline which is allowed to continue with seemingly no regard for the paying customers. If the powers that be such as the FAA, imposed a $100 credit to each passenger for late leaving or arriving, I would have received $400 back on a ticket that cost $750. Maybe the airlines would do something practical to remedy their problems and care for the paying customers rather than just saying "we are sorry for any inconvenience "."
Pros: "That we eventually left"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed because the airport shut down. When the airport opened again. They gave us a departure time 4 hours after our original departure time (1:20 am). 1:20 came and went without any more communication or information. 1:40 am arrived and someone from KQ showed up at our gate and said they do not have any additional information. We said there are children here and hungry, tired, frustrated people. We suggested they distribute waters or snacks, but that never happened. They just kept telling us they didnt know when the flight would take off (or if it would) nor when they would have any additional information. An hour later they made one announcement over the speaker at our gate that our flight was boarding at another gate. However, many people had fallen asleep on the floor as I had and I would have missed it if one of my fellow passengers hadnt woken me up to say that we were boarding. We then sat on the tarmac a while longer for reasons that were not explained and finally landed 7 hours later than scheduled. Very little effort was put into communicating to us, making our wait comfortable nor apologizing for the inconvenience. It was a very frustrating experience."
Cons: "Their flights have been late all the two times I flew with Kenya Airways. Could be a problem if you need to connect to another flight!!"
Pros: "New aircraft and all crews friendly full of service mind"
Cons: "no headphones available in economy class!!!"
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."
Cons: "They lost my luggage going to AFRICA...didn't see the suitcase until 6 days later. When I received the suitcase, over $1000 in equipment was stolen , suitcase was all scrambled...I WAS ROBBED ! ...then on the return flight to HOUSTON, they lost my suitcase again ! W.T.F ?! No one has called me to apologize for anything ! I expect to be reimbursed for my loses, or I will sue the airline."
Everything was great except for the awful selection of movies and TV and a seat back screen that barely works.
My bag was and is still left behind
Pros: "Good seats"
Cons: "Boarding process and Entertainment options. Availability of Snacks would also been good"
Cons: "Our tickets had been cancelled when we got to the airport. Had to purchase new ones. Now we have to fight to get reimbursed. Not happy"
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "No AC, we roasted. Seats uncomfortably small. Terrible on boarding and off boarding process."
Pros: "The crew was nice. The seats were ok."
Cons: "The flight from Copenhagen to Brussels was delayed without explanation for nearly an hour. I managed to make my connection to Frankfurt, but my luggage did not. I’m hoping it will arrive today."
Pros: "One of the crew member who served our food seemed in a rush and just dropped our food on our trays :( There was a lack of communication at the counter for travelers like us who was making this connecting flight. We were there four two hours and nobody bother to tell us we needed to check-in again."
Cons: "Better communication for people making a connection. Not to wait until you are showing your boarding pass and then telling us we needed to check-in again,"
Cons: "Plane left without me. My record indicated 9am departure, but at 845 when I landed (late). The attendant confirmed that I had missed the plane."
Cons: "My luggage was lost for almost 2 weeks."
Pros: "this flight was supposed to be cancelled and refunded i never heard anything back from kayak nor brussel airlines after sending them our family members death certificate!"
Cons: "this flight was supposed to be cancelled and refunded i never heard anything back from kayak nor brussel airlines after sending them our family members death certificate!"
Pros: "I spent 5 hours on the phone and they didn’t help me. They couldn’t even help me the book so I just lost 700 dollars when trying to change a flight."
Cons: "Worst experience in all areas. The phones calls were brutal and no one could help me and then someone could and then they cousltnnagain. No one could find a flight. Took so long for them to look stuff up etc."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Connecting gate was on the other side of the airport. We were running from one side of the airport to another. They should have provided a shuttle service for all of those passengers."
Pros: "Seats were old, but very spacious and comfortable."
Cons: "The boarding process seemed disorganized, and the plane took off late due to waiting for late passengers."
Pros: "Seats were fairly comfortable with decent leg room."
Cons: "My biggest complaint is for the exhorbitant baggage fees—€100 for two bags is ridiculous. Also, one of the crew was rather testy with us when we first boarded (unprovoked), then came to us a few minutes later to say something nice to sort of make up for it."
Pros: "fast lane boarding"
Cons: "no snacks"
Pros: "The actual boarding functioned ok and despite a late departure we got to Brussels ok. They also announced our boarding gates which helped."
Cons: "The check in was shockingly bad. I had pre-checked in, but that did not help. I got put in a line for people who had not checked in. It was not possible to ask to be in the right line. Most of the people behind me were moved to another line while we waited for 30 minutes. When I mentioned the ground crew, who had long conversations with the people checking in, he said it was not their fault at all. It was not impressive."
Pros: "Comfort of the plane, service"
Cons: "No business lounge in CDG before 9am"
Pros: "Great wheel chair service"
Cons: "Polite customer service agent"
Pros: "The on board staff was very nice. That's pretty much the only thing that I liked."
Cons: "Just about everything. Not only were both flights delayed, one without notice, both the check-in and boarding processes were obscenely long with no obvious reason. On board, the staff was very pleasant but took almost 20 minutes to respond to a page and I only paged them one time. The screens for entertainment had a lot of trouble reading touch for both my seatmate and I and the selections were very limited. My seat did not recline which made for a very uncomfortable flight as I had hoped to be able to sleep. They lost one of my bags and somehow still have not found it more than 36 hours later."
Pros: "I was not at all pleased with the overall experience. Most of the staff was very nice though. The flight staff was nice, the airport staff was not."
Cons: "Flight was delayed without notice. They waited until after we were lined up to board to put this up on the board, leaving us standing around for an hour. They never announced it on the overhead. The boarding process took an obscene amount of time which seems to have been attributed to having one worker confirm passports after we had already been checked at the desk. He moved very slowly. Actual flight was quick and easy. No food or entertainment as it was only an hour."
Pros: "La atención, a diferencia de otras aerolíneas europeas se nota la sonrisa y gran atención."
Cons: "A la hora del despegue molestan mucho con las cosas."
Pros: "That we checked in at VIP"
Cons: "The food was the worst I've had in a plan."
Pros: "Quick, easy, friendly."
Cons: "No entertainment but it was a short flight"
Pros: "it was just perfect, no complain"
Pros: "Nice crew, old equipment"
Cons: "All food for purchase. Not even complimentary nuts. All drinks are for purchase. Including water!!! 4 hours flight not a glass of water unless you pay 3 euro. No entertainment. No USB or electric outlets. Thanks for not charging for use of bathroom."
Cons: "Lost/Delayed Baggage My baggage is missing and this has cost me extra expenses and a lot of inconvenience."
Cons: "I'm very disappointed because i wasn't allowed to travel back to the US from Brussels (Belgium). i was supposed to connect in Toronto but because I'm a foreign student in the US, I wasn't aware that i needed a Canadian Visa to transit in Toronto. so lost my flight and i hard to spend another thousand euros to catch the next flight that will connect in the US territory. I made all the call possible to resolve my flight issue and no one could help me either Brussels airline personnel or the kayak customer service. until today i didnt have not even a email to let me know what happen."
Cons: "They change my flight, and I had no kosher food in the other one"
Pros: "The crew was outstanding. All amenities were available."
Cons: "I can't think of anything."
Cons: "Even after meal request few days back, no veg meal available for this long journey"
Cons: "crew indifferent; entertainment limited; food not so good"
Pros: "Due to horrendous traffic we got to the airport after check-in but before the plane took off, but they would not let us board and would not allow us to transfer tickets for even any fee. They will not let us use our return tickets either. Is this how you do business? I'm totally disheartened and disgusted by the lack of customer service or even care."
Cons: "We missed.our flight and no one would work with us to reschedule or refund even a partial refund. We missed out flight due to terrible traffic and now we are out $2500 this is terrible."
Cons: "Poor customer service."
Pros: "We are not frequent fliers and I have been reading about legroom problems. Certainly not on Brussels Air. A delight."
Pros: "Flight left and ended on time."
Cons: "Sandwich bread was not so fresh."
Cons: "The flight was similar to a low-cost airline but I was not informed of this when booking. Uncomfortable seats with very little legroom, and food was only available by purchase. Not worth paying the cost of a regular flight for a 5 hour flight!"
Pros: "Sufficient seat space in a window seat. Excellent customer service on board, compared to any US service provider."
Cons: "Boarding. Unorganized and not very customer friendly."
Cons: "Entertainment was weak. Not enough choices. There was a mixup with my food preference. it was not passed on to the flight and they did not have any vegetarian options. Not even fruits. I was even ready to pay, yet nothing."
Pros: "Flight itself was fine."
Cons: "I tried for numerous days before the flight to buy a piece of baggage online and I kept getting tossed back and forth between Expedia and Brussels Airlines. In the end, I wasn't able to purchase it ahead of time and we had to pay $49 at the airport. I feel entitled to a reimbursement of the difference between the booking online price of $15 and the $49 I paid."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Economy plus seats are not worth the extra upgrade - compared to other airlines. Food was inedible. SLOP that you would give to prison inmates Boarding was horrendous and LONG. Entertainment was non existent. Crew was RUDE RUDE RUDE RUDE RUDE"
Pros: "I flew on United, not Brussels, on this leg."
Cons: "Not allowing free seat selection when the ticket is purchased."
Pros: "Flight time and plane were fine."
Cons: "United charged over twice the fees for extra bags! I feel this was unfair."
Cons: "* No information was provided to the passengers about an additional delay of the flight after the original 5 hour delay. * No compensation was offered for the inconvenience of a delayed baggage by 2 days. * My family is definitely not going to fly with Brussels Airlines after the experience we had."
Cons: "I bought my flight 2 months before, and at the gate I was told I'm on stand by, after the check in agent already took my bag, and without any explanation. No one could tell me WHY I was all of a suddent on standby. The answer I got was "I don't know, that's just how it is in the system". Completely unacceptable and against airline policy. I will be filing an official complaint with Brussels Airlines."
Pros: "It was a short flight, so it was appropriate."
Cons: "No free food and no entertainment. Boarded late."
Pros: "Same crew was great"
Cons: "Same got all the way to the destination and had no luggage"
Pros: "Good flight schedules to where I need to go in West Africa. On time generally. Leg room is average or better."
Cons: "The Brussels/Lufthansa economy thinly padded seats are brutal. I was awoken to a sore behind over and over. You can feel the crosswise metal rod underneath. I sympathize with lack of catering options coming out of developing countries, but the economy meal for the red-eye return to Brussels was hard to swallow, too."
