Cons: "Seats were confortable but when we arrived in toronto, one of our invalid wheelchair was taken away and also had no crew member"
Cons: "Food is not great and the flight was delayed by an hour"
Pros: "The crew was great and the flight was smooth. The food was also good."
Cons: "The passenger next to me in the middle was hitting his arm rest on my leg and made my flight uncomfortable because he would not sit still. I think crew needs to do a better job of making sure everyone stays seated when the plane is still moving before jumping out of their seats and grabbing their luggage. Passengers should be able to exit out of more than one door same as entering."
Pros: "Great options to watch on tv."
Cons: "Flight was late, horrible process at gate of checking passports and items. Should not happen during a layover. This process should take place when checking in."
Pros: "It was easy and convenient"
Cons: "The airline lost my bag, with contained all my clothes, shoes, jewelry, ps4 gaming concel, and all the games CDs I had , alongside the documents I needed to renew my Visa, which was such an inconvenience getting back, that I had to extend my ticket by a week which also cost me almost $400. Plus the airline staff was rude. That ruined my vacation."
Cons: "They lost my baggage. The in-flight crew and food is excellent, ground support is not good."
Pros: "Care from the crew and consideration"
Pros: "the food and service was outstanding as always on Turkish Airlines"
Cons: "The seats were incredibly Uncomfortable, and I was in Business Class. It seemed to be a newer plane. The seat was like sitting on a bench, not in a seat, and the distance between rows was almost non-existant; it was very distressing and disappointing...."
Pros: "flight departed Jhb on time and arrived in Istanbul a few mins earlier than scheduled"
Cons: "1.cabin temperature varied from cold to very warm 2.I asked the cabin crew for a blanket but they forgot about it 3.I ordered a whisky with ice - was given half a tot with 2 small blocks of ice 4.only one person was serving drinks and food on my aisle so it was very slow service (other aisle had 2 crew serving)"
Pros: "Plane was clean and food great !!!"
Pros: "No complaints about the plane, staff etc and its probably no worse than any other airline"
Cons: "Long overnight flight in Economy Class, little legroom. As I am larger than average and find it hard to sleep on flights, the cramped conditions were extremely uncomfortable"
Pros: "The hot stewardess. She not only was gorgeous she smelled fantastic. What a treat to look at! Hire more beautiful women. Fire the fat ones."
Cons: "No where to stash my legs. Why bother to have feet, knees and legs while flying. While flying economy class, airlines should require amputation of legs at the hip. You should just do it because at the end of a long flight your legs will fall off anyhow. They will be rotten and full of ganggreene from no blood flow."
Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "No soap in bathroom."
Pros: "I'm 6 ft 2. Legspace was adequate, and no silly boxes under the seats like other airlines that obstruct your feet. Great entertainment systems - modern, good selection. Food and staff excellent."
Cons: "Their online checkin systems could operate a bit more smoothly. At one point, I had to go in in person, because the online checkin site had an already past flight from their codeshare partner SAS showing up as the next flight, and I couldn't perform online checkin as a result."
Pros: "I'm happy and will continue to fly Turkish."
Pros: "Everything- well done"
Cons: "small plane, noisy! did not like business class. BUt overall ok"
Pros: "Food was better than other airline."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "The issue of excess baggage. Would appreciate to buy on line before my flight so that I know how much to carry and also that I am covered before leaving home. Payment at the airport may be too costly as well as unreasonable. It's like a penalty for having excess luggage. This is the reason I prefer flying with EMIRATES because they afford me to but pay fir excess luggage before my departure. Planning ahead is key"
Cons: "everything planes were gross and not cleaned in between flights stewardesses were rude and unhelpful food gross passengers were treated like cattle most of the announcements were not even made in english"
Pros: "Overall the food ,service and promptness of arrival and departure were very good."
Cons: "Legroom was a bit cramped for such a long flight."
Pros: "The flight was quite comfortable. We lucked out with only a partially filled flight leaving extra space to sleep. Service was friendly and the food was excellent! I was fed twice on my 9hour flight and once on my 4hour flight. Great in flight entertainment."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Great variety in entertainment options and delicious food, well prepared and served."
Cons: "There was a "skip" or interruption in the movies. I could follow them, but the system needs to be adjusted a bit. Overall very good. Oddly, the foot rest, in the upright position, bumped into my shins and made stretching my legs a bit uncomfortable. And I'm average height (5' 10")."
Pros: "Great service, smooth flight, and overall a pleasure to fly with."
Pros: "Happy with all services"
Pros: "Food and Crew"
Cons: "The fact that the boarding was by bus and not through a sleeve detracts from the process."
Cons: "Nothing :D"
Cons: "the kosher food was poor"
Pros: "Food is excellent, staff great."
Cons: "Not nearly enough leg room for an international flight!!"
Pros: "Quality experience all the way around. Thank you for city tour of Istanbul during layover. Outstanding touch!"
Cons: "Food was average"
Pros: "Entertainment system is excellent, food is solid and plentiful."
Cons: "I've flown Turkish a few times before, and they're generally pretty good for the price. This trip was different. Despite Turkish Airlines policies outlined in their "Customer Rights," I received no notification that the flight was delayed 3 hours, and there was no notification at the JoBurg airport until you go to the counter to check in. JoBurg staff - which are Menzies third-party contractors, not Turkish staff - were disorganized, uncommunicative, and unhelpful. Only one person at the check in desk seemed to have authorization to make any changes, so all other agents were running back and forth to speak with him, and not communicating with passengers. It took over an hour to get clarity on the situation and rebook my connecting flight to Washington for a different flight 8 hours later. The only compensation offered was one meal voucher worth R100 (roughly $7). They would not even look at other Star Alliance flights for early arrival in Washington, and said they were not authorized to consider upgrading my ticket. When I called the Turkish customer service, they essentially said "What do you want us to do about it? You have to submit a formal complaint." Boarding was totally disorganized. In theory there are boarding groups, but after business class and all the high-ranking loyalty members, it's pretty much a mad rush. This seems to be the common practice for Turkish now. In general, Turkish has a great entertainment system on all their long-haul flights, with tons of movies - including very new releases - music, games, etc. They also provide complimentary kits with socks, slippers, eye mask, earplugs and dental kit, even for economy passengers. The meals are fairly good for airlines. However, legroom in economy isn't great. I'm 6'1", and had difficulty getting comfortable with my knees jammed into the back of the seat in front of me. On this particular flight, I was in row 18. The cabin crew were frantic, disorganized, and shouting to each other across passengers. One half of our row was served the meal, and the other half had to wait over 30 minutes to be served for some reason. By that time the vegetarian option was no longer available. Crew also had to run back and forth between service carts because they were frequently out of very common beverages (like sparkling water. And ice.), and on two occasions crew left a drawer from a cart full of trash sitting in the aisle. There were several times that crew ran carts into passengers - including once into my knee that was not in the aisle - and didn't even acknowledge doing so. They also stopped the carts in front of occupied lavatories, temporarily trapping passengers. So not terribly professional. While not specifically on this flight, the experience in Istanbul airport with Turkish Airlines' staff was awful. Zero interest in helping, rude and dismissive, and overall terrible."
Cons: "small seats and no room"
Pros: "I left my iPad in the seat back of my previous flight to Istanbul and by the next morning they had my iPad to me and Hungary! Very professional!"
Pros: "I like the overall trip!!"
Pros: "It was a smooth flight. The meals were relatively tasty, and the in-flight entertainment was fun."
Cons: "Having been impressed on recent overseas flight using Turkish Airlines, I thought the standards they had previously practiced would have been implemented. Unfortunately, there were several customer service disappointments, from forgetting to include dessert with my and my daughter's meals to being made to wait nearly an hour for the interactive screen to be reset. And not a sincere apology or effort to resolve the problem."
Pros: "In-flight service puts US-based airlines very much in the shade - welcome on board, attentiveness, food and drinks."
Cons: "Chaotic check-in process."
Pros: "entertainment was excellent the crew was nice"
Cons: "teh landing was tough the boarding was late"
Pros: "Food is always great on Turkish airlines. Entertainment was also great."
Cons: "My flight experience was ruined because TK02 flight was significantly delayed to Istanbul and therefore 25 oassengers did not make it to their flights. The way crew handled this was terrible, they did not care at all! We ended up all waiting for 9 hour at Ataturk Airport."
Cons: "Wine program for international business class was sub-par"
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: "The company gave us a hotel for the layover."
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable"
Pros: "I love the touchdown, of the smoothest ive experienced. It was a long journey but a comfy one. Great job turkish airlines."
Our entertainment/movie and audio did not work during our flight. Two of our bags did not make it to our final home destination. No personal assistant. Everything is via email/web with no assistance.
Sadly! I had a Terrible experience. My daughter got super sick few hours before our departure and hospitalized. Unfortunately I couldn’t able to fly back to USA on that day. I did go to the airport and let them know that I have a serious emergency and can’t fly. Kayak didn’t help at all or made any adjustments to get a new date. I had to purchase new tickets. I’m so disappointed!
The check in process was disorganized. The staff were rude. Once you get on the flight, there is no entertainment on board.
Pros: "Crew could have been a little more friendly. Seating was great"
Cons: "Had a 3 he delay due to technical issues on the aircraft.. this was the third time it happened in the last four months"
Cons: "The food was overcooked for dinner and breakfast was a veggie wrap which was soggy and strange. Bring food with you!"
Cons: "Flight left without us even though they knew our flight had landed and we were on our way. Then they rerouted us with a longer flight and our luggage didn’t make it."
Cons: "Flight delayed and I missed connection"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and attentive, I really like the food on Lufthansa"
Cons: "The movie selection was limited and dated"
Pros: "The crew performed their duties in a professional manner."
Cons: "We arrived late, but that was nothing compared to the horror I experienced with my connecting flight out of Frankfurt to Mallorca. I should get a refund."
Pros: "Spacious seating, easy access to charging plug and good movies."
Cons: "Boarding is never fun, why not do back first?"
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "The crew were very considerate. Also they have the best baby beds we have seen so far"
Cons: "The entertainment system was glitchy."
Pros: "Lounge was very clean"
Cons: "In a 10 hours flight Frankfurt to Atlanta only one main meal. Service was rushed job. My seat wasn’t working and Tv remote didn’t work."
Pros: "Overall once on the flight the service and comfort were very good. Attendants were very nice and helpful. Always had a smile and made the flight enjoyable. We specifically picked this Airline for its service and reliablity"
Cons: "The checkin and "Automated" Baggage Check were a disaster. It took us a full 2 hours to check our bags and get to thru security and our gate. We were practically running to get to the end. The layout of the airport is very tough to get from point A to point B. Walking a long distance with multiple security checks. On top of that, the plane was almost an hour late boarding and then taking off. It was a mass of people with no way to cue for an orderly boarding process. No instructions or info given to allow us to go get something to eat or drink prior to boarding."
Cons: "Flight was on time and food was very good. Took wonderful care of us. Our first flight to Europe and first time on Lafthansa."
Pros: "Flight out was delayed three hours, causing me to not be able to make connecting flight."
Cons: "The long delay. Ended up having airline reroute my last two flights."
Cons: "The connecting flight to Bremen from Munich was missed due to delayed flying from Munich. Then we had a reconnecting flight and 15 minutes prior to boarding it was cancelled. No more flights to Bremen so we then were redirected to a flight to Hamburg. We had to fly from Munich to Vienna and then from Vienna to Hamburg. The flight from Munich to Vienna was delayed by 40 minutes which made us lose the connecting flight. We had to wait until the next morning for a flight to Hamburg, where as we arrived our luggage was lost. The staff ensured us that our connecting flights were waiting for us, however the flights had left 20 minutes prior to our arrival. The staff was nice but the communication was poor."
Pros: "Great staff, amazing experience."
Cons: "No vegetarian food"
Pros: "The trip was fast"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "when seats recline in economy you can barely get in and out of a seat"
Pros: "very professional cabin crew"
Cons: "The overhead bins are way too small, and they ran out of the vegetarian dinner option. There are no longer air controls for each seat, and the plane was quite cold."
Pros: "Nothing, really; the seats—even those in business class–have a no-frills design, with hardly any recline to speak of. Okay for flights as short in duration as this one (about 50 minutes)."
Cons: "The delay in boarding, much of which was due to the fact that the plane wasn't ready for boarding in time because the tech service was delayed. It would seem this was at least in part something within the sphere of factors the airline is able to control. Also, there was an irritating, rumbling noise, sounding almost like an old propeller engine, during much of the plane's ascent. You'd think there would be some maintenance necessary."
Pros: "One of middle aged blonde flight attendants - didnt get her name- was super nice and friendly and shoukd be rewarded for standing out in the crowd of flight attendants. Food above average."
Cons: "Delay at departure in Frankfurt - fuel tank problem- made people miss their connection flights. Medical problem on board caused delays and me having to change seats at the end to where the sick woman used to sit - smelled of vomit, gross. 3 crying bwbies for 12 hours. Seats too narrow, room in front too small with table pulled out. LH always good but not this time."
Pros: "Very nice flight, very little if no turbulence food was decent just luggage took forever"
Cons: "Luggage wait was an hr other then that the A380 which is my favorite plane was amazing"
Pros: "The boarding process is very efficient."
Cons: "Lufthansa’s people are mostly good. But there are some obvious opportunities for people to be more friendly. Also, LH like many others continues to serve cold rolls and cold butter on international flights. KLM warms the rolls! It’s the one small touch that would make Lufthansa’s meal service so much nicer."
Pros: "I like boarding with the two kids were a breeze they put us in the plane quickly and had no issues there."
Cons: "The staff was rude, not all of the just some of the ladies working that flight were rude to us and others in the plane."
Cons: "I had to endure 10 hours sitting next to an obese passenger, who was to big to fit into his seat and had to rest his shoulder and elbow over my seat. The crew couldn't do much and so I had to shift myself sideways for the entire journey in order to make space for this obese passenger to rest his arm into and over my seat."
Cons: "They had overbooked the flight and asked to reroute me. I asked if I would still be able to get to my destination at the same time and to make sure I would have a window seat. Everything from the moment I said yes was a terrible. They rebooked me twice on two different routes when I was in the air. Said a steward would meet me (never happened) instead I was running to catch flights on different airlines in two different airports. The entire situation was disgusting. The running was with all of my luggage. Because of the rebooking I was in the last row of 75 rows on a plane with an additional connection. Every flight had delays creating more chaos for the next flight. The only helpful airline in the bunch was Delta."
Cons: "Economy class felt like a punishment. It seemed like I was forever being reminded that the business and first class passengers were treated better. I'm not talking about perks like free champagne, but asking the economy class to enter the airplane from the rear using a lower standard stairwell ramp seems bizarre."
Pros: "Crew friendly, good food"
Cons: "Cramped seating, can't select seat until checkin without paying (only airline we were unable to select seat)"
Cons: "At the luggage claim the flight crew collected their baggage first then the passengers. My last bag didn't appear for 40 minutes after the flight crew departed."
Pros: "The flight went by very quickly and peacefully."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind and that's a good thing!"
Pros: "Very comfortable flight."
Pros: "personal screen with option to start / pause and restart movie, good selection of movies but not the resent ones. Hot food, quick service. considered crew"
Cons: "no relaxing/ meditating music to ease sleeping only voice guided recordings, 3 hrs delay increased travel to 11 hrs 45 min"
Pros: "The services, movie selection and food"
Pros: "Fast trip"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "SAS and BA can do better"
Pros: "Excellent Flight"
Pros: "Comfortable seat, good entertainment"
Pros: "Crew was fine. Food was ok."
Cons: "Delay, twice - before we boarded and then again after we taxied."
Pros: "Still loads of leg room in economy which is great for a tall person like myself."
Cons: "The food, dinner and breakfast from Johannesburg to Frankfurt was not very nice and not the usual good standard."
Cons: "The seat in front of mine was reclined in the already cramped space provided, twice as far back as any other seat I could see. Please look into the recline on that seat for future passengers. The crew hit my seat, repeatedly with their carts and did not remember to offer drinks to us as they pushed it by. The airlines should consider removing that seat as an option to passengers if there is not ample room for the flight crew to maneuver around it. It made for an unpleasant experience overall."
Cons: "Staff was extremely sassy and unhelpful when I had been traveling for 40 hours."
Pros: "The crew were relaxed and nice."
Cons: "United Economy is very tight and uncomfortable. Flight was delayed and no one said why until I overheard a crew member say it was going to be 15 min for paperwork. Snacks were scant. Boarding was chaotic, but it was a pretty packed flight. Not enough seats in the board in area for a plane that big. Screen for movies was far away or small and not individualized like most planes."
Cons: "My whole experience with Lufthansa/united was horrible. We booked our tickets on kayak and it was a Lufthansa flight operated by United. When we went to check in at the united counter they told us there was no record of our flight even though we had printed our receipt which had confirmed ticket numbers. It took over 30 minutes for them to figure out they needed to call Lufthansa to get the ticket transferred and in the end blamed us for not doing that ourselves before the flight! I thought this was insane as I have flown with multiple other airlines and never had this problem. And then once it was fixed for the way there we still had problems again on the way back. Never flying United/Lufthansa again."
Pros: "Very prompt, good food. We encourage trip very much!"
Cons: "Food Not being able to select seats at online check in as flight was operated by united"
Cons: "A female member of the cabin crew was rude to one of the passengers (either Latino or Middle Eastern), who was unable to fasten her children's seat belts and informed the crew shortly before the take off."
Delta operated. Missed connecting flight due to single late crew member in dfw. 1.5 h late. Missed work and incurred costs of over $800. Delta failed to hold connecting flight(s) at gate and it actually left EARLY. Fail. Never again.
Have people at the Westjet counter
Overall a pleasant flight.

Cons: "The plane was very hot"
Pros: "Amazing services .. on time just exactly .. I feel really happy onboard KLM ❤️"
Cons: "I called for a crew member 5 times and waited 25 minutes for anyone to help me with just some water. I had to get up and go to the very back of the plane to ask for some water. The plane was hot and no air to be found. This was all after we had to get back off the plane before takeoff. It was terrib"
Cons: "If only there was a way to be able to lie down and sleep - you would be pioneers in aviation"
Pros: "Smooth and faster than expected trip. I felt free to get up and walk around on this long flight. Food was good. I sat in seat with extra leg room for the first time and it was worth it"

Cons: "The food."
Pros: "Entertainment options."
Cons: "Service was poor, seat did not recline, and the food was terrible."
Pros: "Good flight, arriving well on time."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and there was enough room for hand baggage. I slept during the flight so do not have opinion on entertainment."
Cons: "Not able to charge my digital devices. When serving beverages and food, the same flight attendant missed me a few times. That was annoying but other attendants were very nice."
Pros: "Decent meal (warm Pasta all'arrabbiata), nice little muffin for dessert and standard drinks (coffee & tea were a bonus, as they didn't serve any on a similar flight, from Barcelona to Amsterdam), friendly cabin crew."
Cons: "Poor timing - no reason for a 40 minute delay at take off (plane was fully boarded in time) Old aircraft, shabby, dirty and cramped seats. Coming from my connecting flight from Barcelona, I could clearly tell the different in the quality (and cleanliness) of the aircrafts."
Cons: "They have mabaged to lost my luggage"
Pros: "Arrived Early!"
Cons: "Left Late :-)"
Pros: "crew were absolutely delightful, full of smiles and doing everything to make you comfortable. seats were fine enough and got some work done and a bit of sleep. first lunch was fresh and tasty, but the second, a burger, was edible, but not much more."
Cons: "tv screens are dated so movies are not as crisp as you find in newer planes. you need a 2 prong audio adapter to use your own headphones."
Pros: "The flight crew was nice. Plane departed/arrived on time."
Cons: "I paid €60 extra to sit in the emergency door seat to get more leg room but once.i was in the plane learned for more leg room I accepted a smaller seat next to a bathroom and no entertainment. I could not store my belongings near me. No power outlet to charge my devices for my own entertainment on a 7 hour flight. Dealing with constant traffic for the bathroom. I sat in the middle seat between two hours other men. It was a constant struggle arm space. After 7hours in the air I could not wait to get off the plane. If I didn't actually pay an extra €60 for the seat I may not feel bad but I feel like I might have been better off without paying for the "upgrade""
Cons: "Boarding was delayed a little due to weather as was takeoff. Cant blame them for weather but the connection was very tight."

Pros: "The very dirty plane was cleaned at Dar-es-salaam and became less dirty. The pilot kept us updated periodically through the flight. The flight attendants were very pleasant."
Cons: "The plane was very dirty when we landed in Dar-es-salaam. The plane did get cleaned a little bit in Dar-es-salaam however I was still missing a pillow and blanket which I had to actively seek out. Seating was not very comfortable as there was a box attached to the leg of the seat in front of me, making it necessary to keep my feet at an uncomfortable angle through the long flight. I did not enjoy the food."
Pros: "The crew were pleasant"
Pros: "I really like the spaciousness, the plug ins and general service"
Cons: "I have a dairy allergy but had no option to prepurchase a dairy free meal. It made for a very unenjoyable flight as I couldn't eat anything they had. What was worse was after I told them of my situation they said they understood and had a meal that would do but there was cheese, yogurt, milk chocolate, etc."

And today again coming to Nairobi the female crew came over serving snacks again and requested if I could have some wet wipes my hands were dirty dirty because had seen a crew handing out with to the people in the front raw but she answered me it was in the bank and she kept on and I again asked the male crew and he explained to me that they mostly don’t give wet wipes for short flights but I had wet wipes when I flew to Nairobi from Amsterdam and I had too when I left Nairobi to Uganda , what’s the point of serving foods when passengers gotta eat with dirty hands , and today again-the same female crew skipped the first raw of two males with snacks who were seated in front of us and even if they told her they missed the snacks, she stood there and called the male crew just unprofessionally to bring the snacks for the gentleman and she just never cared . I think they should do better thanks ."

Cons: "At one time the flight got too cold"
Pros: "On time, good food, very polite and welcoming crew. Seats very comfortable."

Cons: "Entertainment system plays very old films Stop over 5 hours."
Cons: "Old planes and little entertainment"
Pros: "The crew is laid back and not fake-polite while not dismissive."
Cons: "No major complaints except punctuality."
Pros: "We missed our flight from Nairobi to kigali by 2 min. They wouldn’t hold the plane for us. We have to wait in yheairport for 7 hours. Got nothing. Very dissapointed. Bad customer care."
Pros: "Well, I missed it due to multiple delays out of Nairobi -- so not much good to say."
Cons: "Delayed. Staff in Nairobi swore up and down that I'd be able to take the bottle I bought in duty free onto my connecting flight in Mumbai, but it was confiscated at customs -- so thanks a lot."
Pros: "Trip on the Dreamliner to/from Nairobi/Joburg went very smoothly. Entertainment was limited but worked and was fine for a 4 hour trip. Food was nothing great but nothing disastrous, booze was handed out willingly, staff were efficient, plane was on time - I rate it higher than SAA for the same leg and would choose KA again."
Cons: "Expensive at $800 but limited choice in Africa so what can you do?"
Pros: "The plane was pretty comfortable, they gave us blankets and pillows even though it was only a 4-hour flight."
Cons: "They served "breakfast" halfway through which was two tiny servings of meat and a piece of chocolate cake. Not much food and not really what I wanted to eat in the middle of the night! Boarding was completely chaotic, some screens said the flight was delayed, others said it was on time (it was delayed). When we arrived in Nairobi they hardly apologized for the delay, and also insisted on sending a bus to come pick us up from the plane because it was raining, which took forever. Missed my connection by about 5 minutes and had to wait almost 10 hours for the next one."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "35 minute departure delay with not even an attempt at an explanation. Broken seat. Cramped."
Pros: "Boarding was early"
Cons: "Plane full and didnt have enough room for a number of hand luggage, mine invcluded"
Pros: "They no take care of my bag"
Pros: "Timeous and polite crew"
Cons: "The food was mediocre and no choice for entertainment, common movie or 2 low quality music channels"
Pros: "Everything fine! Especially appreciated that flights were on time, even early."
Cons: "Boarding procedures took too long consequently missed connecting flight. Crew seemed overwhelmed, chicken dinner was half cooked, entertainment system didn't work."
Pros: "Overall it was fine. However there were some downsides..."
Cons: "One of our bags didn't make it. Also, the plane left late for some reason. We weren't sure why they didn't start letting us board sooner. Finally, the airport in Nairobi is dangerous when early morning planes arrive. Arriving passengers who are in transit are ushered down an escalator where they are pushed into one another because of a security line backup...yet the escalator just keeps bringing more people. This happened to us in Nairobi in the early morning of July 26 and again in the early morning of August 2. I feared someone would be trampled or hurt."
Pros: "Food. The pilot spent some time flying over the Victoria falls"
Cons: "Dirty bathroom"
Pros: "Good crew. Flight not fully booked so had some extra space. Efficient transfer desk"
Cons: "Food - just horrible Nairobi airport not much to do and annoying additional security checks between sub-terminals in terminal 1."
Cons: "We only had 30 minutes to catch this connecting flight due to our incredibly delayed PrecisionAir flight. We got to the service desk to get our boarding passes and there was only one person to service a multitude of people. Of course they knew that a flight was coming in, why there was only one personnel is still a mystery to me. The person who served us, Victor K., was probably the least helpful customer service personnel I've come across. He was very slow, considering that he knows there's a lot of us trying to get to our next flight. We ended up missing our connecting flight. And for some reason, the plane left earlier than the time it was supposed to leave. Another mystery to me. Shouldn't their system have told them that there were a few passengers on the previous flight that was supposed to board this connecting flight?! They did give us a free hotel for the night, or so they call a hotel. The food served was just horrendous. They just served whatever is enough to be considered "food". I will never fly with Kenya airways ever again. They are so unreliable, irresponsible, and have very little regard to customer service."
Pros: "Friendly staff Good food"
Cons: "The movies were not working"
Cons: "I was originally scheduled on a Precision Airways flight but it did not fly, so put on Kenya Airways flight. Unfortunately my bag didn't make it so had to spend the night without it. It did come the next day, so I was able to climb Kilimanjaro. Don't know which company messed up."
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 "."
Cons: "Not much space between rows,everybody reclined their seat, you could barley move"
