Poor communication: Flight come directly to kigali , didn’t come via mumbasa. Favouring to Rwandan passenger to move from economic to bussiness class after flight depart. Where they don’t asked other older passenger who need more comfort. Rude staff : chekin airport at Mumbai. Talking in local language (marathi) while serving and no sorry no thank you attitude.
Pros: "Seat reclining was good. Fleece blankets were warm"
Cons: "Blankets had a really bad smell Food options were very limited - even bread was eggless"
Pros: "I think that I appreciated all the details during the trip. As I get my kayak app in my IPhone, i firstly received a notice that the check in started.... At each step, I could see the time discounted through my phone"
Cons: "As I said, I liked everything. From the departure to the landing"
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: "The food initially given at 2:00am IST was really good and so I didn't even have to wake up again to eat."
Cons: "The breakfast was not as appetizing."
Pros: "The Airbus. The crew's simple commitment to excellent service"
Cons: "The unconventional check in closure 90mins to departure even when the plan arrived late"
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"
Pros: "We got to whole destination safely"
Cons: "Once in Abidjan, it became a mess. First we were left waiting for over an hour without any explanation. Then we were told that we had to retrieve our baggage and then recheck them. Hardly anyone spoke English so that was a long and confusing ordeal. Then we loaded on a bus, asked to get off after a while because our flight was delayed, left waiting some more with minimal information before we eventually got on the last leg of the flight. It was a mess."
Cons: "Very disorganized at the airport of Abidjan with mutliplr but useless checkings. It was a tota mess at the security checking. The flight was delayed for 1 h"
Cons: "Boarding was okay though it took longer than 1h. The flight was delayed for 30 minutes because the engine to start it was not functional. Very strangr"
Pros: "I read bad review after bad review of Air Côte d'Ivoire prior to flying them, and so approached this flight with trepidation. To my pleasant surprise, everything went off without a hitch: orderly boarding and on-time departure; comfy & clean new planes; delicious in-flight meal with wine; efficient disembarkation in Dakar with prompt, hassle-free baggage claim. ZERO complaints. This airline is great - don't be like me, book without hesitation!"
Cons: "NOTHING - everything was flawless. Thank you!!"
Cons: "Flights are always delayed and boarding is disorganized. No communication"
Pros: "Never on time"
Cons: "Flights are always delayed and boarding is disorganized. No communication"
Cons: "They changed our return time and added an extra hour layover."
Pros: "Flight was booked as direct abidjan to Ouagadougou on the 8th, then back on 10 th but in fact went past to Niamey then back to Ouagadougou, completely disorganizing all previously made arrangements and without prior warning! Quite unacceptable, as this was a repeat performance of what occurred the previous day, and was obviously planned, yet we were not informed. I will say your flight attendants are pleasant and professional."
Cons: "Lack of communication"
Pros: "Smooth and fast. No problems or complications. Nice that we were served a small meal. Delicious!"
Pros: "Boarding on time, nothing as problem, crew did good job and the food was also okay."
Cons: "The cabin attendants attitude need to be warmer and friendly. The food was not good."
Cons: "Ethipian Airlines overbooked my return flight and did not offer me an alternate return flight so I could return on my designated date. They instructed me to come back the following date to fly. I was not compensated nor offered at the very least an apology. The ticketing staff was unprofessional and attempted to blame me for not flying. Do not fly Ethiopian Airlines out of Accra ever!!!"
Pros: "The crew was Excellent"
Cons: "There is to many delays in the night flights, this should be improved."
Pros: "The crew were very welcoming, helpful and charm, makes you feel easy"
Cons: "General interior cleanliness"
Pros: "I liked they’re fury free in flight shopping, very nice affordable pieces of jewelry and perfumes"
Cons: "They weighed my carryon! I haven’t seen any other airline do that before. I flew with them 3 times this year, 13 hour each flight and the entertainment was not the best. They didn’t have enough current movies or tv shows. The food was bland. Coffee cups were plastic and it burnt my finger."
Pros: "Ground stuff was trying tobe very helpful but it ended with trying. Also they did not inform us about he change of stoping in Cairo"
Cons: "Old airport that is uncomfortable with bad lounges that are not even worth going into."
Pros: "I liked they way how did they respect time ( punctual). They were so nice with passengers."
Cons: "Rude flight attendants and desk staff that were not trained to do check in well. No entertainment available."
Pros: "New plane fantastic cabin"
Cons: "There was a fight but nothibg to do with the flight crew just some passenger with mental issues"
Pros: "Everything..state of the earth big jet..smootflight..very nice crew...hard like 3 bottles of white wine..very surprised that Ethiopian airlines can perform marvelously well..will continue flying them"
My flight was fine. The stewardess were wonderful. My bag is lost. I am in Madagascar. Please help. Can you help with refund I paid $110. I'm waiting for my sports equipment. Thanks
The crew was very friendly. The check-in to boarding process was onerous and unclear. I understand that part of the process is not the airline's responsibility but they can lobby to streamline the process
Pros: "Lazy crew dont even provide water when needed. The cabin was extremely hot and the blowers dont work."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 2 hours. I missed my connection flight to Lilongwe and had to spend a night in nairobi. What n incovinienve!"
Pros: "Service and flight itself"
Cons: "Changing the system to be repaired whenever someone needs to change the phone let be available especially to those who are traveling to other countries and they're new there and they need to do a calling for connection to people who are going to take them to different destinations."
Pros: "The journey from Yaoundé was great. The crew was excellent. Part of food needs improvement. The journey from Nairobi was good and we arrived earlier than expected."
Cons: "The flight for on Nairobi, had no entertainment, nowhere to charge cellphones."
Cons: "I am waiting at the airport to catch a flight tonLusaka. This is because I was bumped off my floor flight that I have no seat. Not sure when I will get ion that flight."
Cons: "The food could be improved and the movie collection could be updated"
Pros: "Kenya Airways changed their flight schedule 48 before our departure. The change meant an extra night before departure and an 11 hour layover in Nairobi before our connecting flight. The KA booking agent provided us with accommodation for the delay and the long layover. We appreciated that."
Cons: "We lost 24 hours in our travel. It was reasonable of the airline to provide accommodation during the delay but the night in Nairobi was at a very dismal hotel where the food quality was terrible."
Pros: "Smooth and comfortable flight!"
Cons: "Crew should take diversity training, they tend to treat white people better than people of color. Also this flight was delayed and communication was poor, no crew were on sight during the time on ground! The selection of movies was so poor. KQ is really a stingy airline, 15 hrs flight and no amenity kit! Smh"
Boarding confusion, just asked for a cup of water and the crew answers was shocking
They take your hang luggage and it never arrives to your destination. They don’t follow seating arrangements
You need screens on every seat so passengers can watch movies, documentaries, music or something else to avoid to get bored.
Everything was perfect, Happy to have this great airline that serves all Africa.
The crew were good but I still did not have my luggage till now I keep checking no response
My Ethiopian flight was cancelled without Kayak informing me. I found out through my sister who picked the same flight via Expedia. When i informed Kayak, they failed to put me on another flight…stating they are waiting to hear back from Ethiopia airlines. After receiving no response for 2 weeks, I asked Kayak for a refund. And again, no response. Thus, I had to call my credit card company to dispute the transaction. Thank you chase for being understanding. However, I DO NOT recommend flying with Ethiopian airlines or booking through Kayak. Terrible customer service especially when it entails refunding people their money.
Cons: "It would be much better if they didn’t lose my 2 luggage bags with no proper compensation to offer - 50$ is what you get to recover your belongings meanwhile my items lost are worth at least 10,000$.. contacting my lawyer in the morning. Also the plane has nowhere to plug your phone, can’t charge your phone for over 7 hours, no in flight WiFi, and no tv screen to watch movies.. I couldn’t help but wonder was this a 1985 plane? Do not recommend, stay away."
Cons: "This is my first time traveling these airlines and I promise you it’s the last.. the plane had no option to plug my cell phone, no WiFi, not even a screen to watch movies (7 something hours flight).. I was served a loaf of bread cut in half with some spices inside as a meal! But the most horrible part is the fact once landed I found out the lost both of my luggage bags, and All they told me was I’m entitled of an allowance of $50.. tried hard not to laugh as my 50 kg of belongings worth thousands of dollars.. beyond disappointed, aggravated and shocked. Contacting my lawyer in the morning. Do not fly with them!"
Cons: "Please the flight time for connecting in Lome needs to be improved!!!! It's highly stressful for a passenger to be in another country where they don't speak the local language and have to be shuffling to connect to a flight within less than 10 minutes. Any Ethiopian airline connecting flight needs to have at least a 45 minutes gap."
Pros: "Crew very caring and respectful"
Cons: "For me I don’t see any problem with the airline at all. Everything was superb"
