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: "Crew members are extremely polite and friendly. Flight was delayed leaving Kigali captain spoke to each passenger and apologise - great professionalism."
Cons: "Entertainment was limited."
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: "Food and in-flight services"
Cons: "Entertainment package"
Pros: "Rwanda Air is the best"

Cons: "As I said, I liked everything. From the departure to the landing"
Cons: "My luggage was broken into and stolen. They sawed off the zip on my suitcase and broke the handle. Stole a number of personal items including a belt, perfume, t-shirts and cash."
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."

Pros: "Friendly staff, decent snacks and entertainment options"
Pros: "New airline. Left 20 mins early."
Pros: "The plane was nice and the captain gave good info."
Cons: "Why was dinner served at 2AM? They woke me up three times to serve drinks and food and the cabin lights were never turned off, for an overnight flight! The Kigali airport waiting area is awful, and the holding area made it so that every child had to use the bathroom as soon as we boarded."
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: "What did you like? the attendants were very kind"
Pros: "The flight attendants are very welcoming and helpful. You feel safe and you get to see the pilot who is going to take you to your destination."
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: "Everything was on time and comfortable. Will take the same flight again in the future."
Cons: "Reservation was not honored, and only 3 prople out of 5 get boarding. Airline did not provided any other alternative and our friends had to cancel tour and return home!"
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: "Planes were great and flight crew excellent."
Pros: "Everything went well as expected..."
Pros: "movie dinner on each leg of the flight"
Cons: "the movie didn't finish in the first leg and they didn't show it for the second leg, so I never learned the ending the flight arrived 40 minutes late"
Cons: "Too cold on the plane - way, way too cold"
Pros: "Food was beef brochettes, one of the best economy meals I have had. Wine was very good, from South Africa."
Cons: "Seats were not adjustable. It may be that I was in front of the exit row, but I looked and didn't see anyone leaning back anywhere. On the other hand, flight was only 1 hr 20 minutes."
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: "Clean planes"
Cons: "Ground crew at NBO - Rwanda Air has Kenyan Airways do the work in the terminals. Bad idea!"
Cons: "This airline is an operational nightmare. I purchased a ticket with a connection, and the second flight being a codeshare, two months in advance. On the day of travel, I checked in, checked two bags, and headed to the gate. An hour before the flight, a Rwandaair agent approached me to inform me that they were no longer code sharing with precision air, the second flight. Chaos ensued, my bags got lost, I got stuck in Nairobi, etc. in Nairobi, one of the Kenya airways agents literally said to me 'avoid Rwandaair and precision airlines - they are both airlines that do not follow any regulations, and not just operational, but safety as well.'"
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 got me to Gaborone on Monday morning"
Cons: "Person in Kigali checked my bag to Johannesburg, not Gaborone. Flight was delayed one hour. Slept on a chair in Johannesburg airport for three hours."
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"

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: "Flight attendant are helpful."
Pros: "I always appreciate the cleanliness of Rwanda! This carries over to their planes too. Good staff on the plane. Too short of a flight for entertainment- it was amazing they even served the quick drink and snacks they did! Good on-time flights."
Cons: "After I bought my tickets the flights were rescheduled, giving us an 8 hour layover between flights... some in our party were stuck in the airport with nothing to do, and there is nothing to do in that airport. One question, when will passengers learn that listening to music or movies on the plane without headphones is really uncool?"
Amazing crew and hospitality I really enjoy flying with them definitely my favorite so far:)))
Pros: "Entertainment was great!"
Cons: "The check-in was stressful and congested."
Pros: "left on the, arrived on time, crew were friendly and efficient, seat was comfortable"
Cons: "Food was a bit basic and in-flight entertainment was a bit limited, but on a 2 hour flight not a major problem"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, missed connection in Istanbul and had to spend a day in Turkey before next available flight"
Cons: "Food is not great and the flight was delayed by an hour"
Pros: "I was impressed by how Turkish Air treated me when I missed my connecting flight in Istanbul It was confusing to say the least but once I got to the right location they could not have been any friendlier, kinder, or gracious My hats off to Turkish Air THANK YOU"
Cons: "It was a tight space and they kept giving me things (pillow,blanket, slippers and socks, and headphones) that I didn’t need or have room for I appreciate the thought Return trip I’ll be more aware and decline what I don’t need"
Pros: "It was a smooth trip"
Cons: "Boarding a bus to be taken to the plane It’s probably not unusual in Turkey but that was a first for me In all fairness it was a high anxiety moment for me with all the unknowns I was facing but I appreciate Turkish Air nonetheless"
Pros: "Care from the crew and consideration"
Pros: "Cost of seat."
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: "The check in was with a smile and a good service"
Cons: "The terminal was separated from the duty free and it was prostrating they all the shops were an available including the tax free refund."
Pros: "I really liked the selection of food, beverages, and movies"
Cons: "Economy is SO cramped for such a long flight."
Cons: "Plane delayed Missed connection"
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"
Cons: "A bit disorganized in the beginning, but much better later on"
Cons: "I received my luggage one week after the flight"
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: "The crew was nice and kind for the most part. The food was good although a bit small, but good flavor."
Cons: "The plane wasn't clean, the table/trays hadn't been cleaned. We had a 2 hour delay and no reason was given and waiting for food for a very long time in this case and it was already late in the day."
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "Seats too narrow and no leg room."
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: "The service on Turkish airlines was not friendly or helpful. The food was not quality, or food tasting. The entertainment didn't include a lot of movies at all. One of the flights did even give headphones. The staff wasn't rude and not helpful, and didn't make the flight comfortable. I had high hopes flying with Turkish Airlines for the first time, but I was thoroughly disappointed with everything."
Pros: "Everything was good except boarding. Boarding should be from a proper gate rather than from a bus"
Pros: "No air conditioner. Sweated like a pig the whole 13 hour flight"
Cons: "No ac"
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: "Our flight from Zanzibar took off 40 minutes late and we made up no time in the air. We arrived at the Istanbul airport 20 minutes before our next flight was supposed to take off. Of course the gates were nowhere near each other so we ran as fast as we possibly could to catch our next flight. When we finally got to the gate, the employees were so kind to rush us through each step of security and get us to the door and there had to be at least 7 or 8 people who were working and doing whatever they could to get us on that flight. It meant so much! We had been up since 2am to catch our previous flight and just wanted to get home to our families and dogs! We were so grateful they worked so hard to get us on the plane!"
Cons: "Because we were late, we got what I'm guessing were the last two seats on the plane. The window seats in the last two rows. It was EXTREMELY tight back there. I'm just glad we were able to get on the plane but the comfort level was really not great and for a 10 hour flight, that stunk."
Cons: "Crew was slow to pick up trays."
Pros: "Food and Crew"
Cons: "The fact that the boarding was by bus and not through a sleeve detracts from the process."
Cons: "Pathetic vegetarian food. Same pasta was served twice."
Cons: "the kosher food was poor"
Pros: "The service from Turkish on the flights was great. The service for rebooking was great, once we got to the front of the line."
Cons: "Due to a snowstorm (beyond their control) we had to rebook. We were in line for over seven hours because they did not honor the line and helped whoever walked up to the front. Many people 'cut' in line. It wasn't until someone yelled at them about the problem that they started to honor the line. Unfortunately that was five hours in to the wait!"
Pros: "This is a government run airline with very poor customer service. I flew 6 flights in December, 2016 in business class - out of which 5 flights were late. There was no help at the transfer desk in Istanbul to get onto another flight as my connecting flight was missed because the original outbound flight was late. The customer service staff both at the lounge and the transfer desk were inept and rude and did not want to help. I shudder to think how economy passengers are treated."
Cons: "1) No organized boarding process - there is a general melee at the boarding gate with a lot of shoving and pushing. 2) Customer service staff are rude, incompetent and unhelpful 3) No recognition that customers are to be served 4) Food selection in business class was mediocre and poor 5) Old aircraft - on flight from Istanbul to London, business class was 3 abreast with the middle seat being used as a tray table. 6) Sleeper class is mediocre - seat width is poor and one cannot even turn on the side"
Pros: "Food is excellent, staff great."
Cons: "Not nearly enough leg room for an international flight!!"
Pros: "Entertainment options were excellent for adults and ado. The crew were very accommodating"
Cons: "Screaming children and passengers that don't follow simple instructions or cue with respect"
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."
Pros: "This was the return flight I skipped base on the horrible customer service I received on the first leg of the flight."
Cons: "The bording process, the customer service and attention."
Pros: "Muy buena aerolínea. Todo estuvo bien. 100% recomendada."
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: "That it was a direct flight ."
Cons: "I usually prefer Turkish Airlines and always seek to take it in most of my travels. This time the service was not as I have been used to . Too many people were changing seats with permission from the air hostesses . The air hostesses missed me 3 times for food and beverage . They passed right by me . They weren't organized at all. I had to call them to remind them to give me some food and drink. Plus when boarding they only announced it in Turkish and not English"
Pros: "Excellent price, food, staff, and accommodations! Highly recommend Turkish Airlines!!!"
Pros: "Everything on the plane was great."
Cons: "The boarding area at the airport was overly crowded and hectic. It was really difficult to move around with two kids and a few bags."
Pros: "Crew were pleasant and did a superb job of making passengers feel welcome."
Cons: "My gripe is mostly with the ground staff. I was happily sitting in the lounge drinking copious amounts of hot tea due to an illness when my flights status changed on the monitor; "go to gate", it read. When I dutifully arrived at the gate, what was happening? Absolutely nothing. I sat there shivering for another 30 mins before boarding, my heat source (the tea) removed. The moral of the story is that a passenger's time has value, DO NOT waste it. In my case, the cost was physical agony of freezing on a mediterranean island in the summer while wearing 2 shirts, long pants, and double socks. If the ground staff did everything to procedure and are thus faultless, then the procedure is reprehensible and should be updated."
Pros: "The food and crew service"
Cons: "The leg room is really limited in the economy cabin"
Pros: "Love everything... i was actually surprised... The crew was the bes"
Pros: "food and entertainment"
Cons: "Couldn't find the reclining in seats"

More meals in flight - one meal is not enough for an 8hr flight
Pros: "Clean plane , good crew ,"
Cons: "they didn't load my baggage from flight 1 to 2"
Pros: "Yeah Everything well organized"
Cons: "I believe so"
Cons: "I may be wrong but these days, the staff curtsy and overall well coming approach is lacking! Just a smile and a few cheerful words can transform passengers’ mood greatly!! This becomes particularly important when one is traveling for > 9 hours back to back flights!! One can extra charge for it!!"
Pros: "Perfectly on time, no hassle, seat OK. This is the way I appreciate a flight."
Cons: "Food. No choice, three "madeleine" (sweet) cookies for all, no sugar-free (salty) alternative..."
Cons: "Boarding (by bus) was a total chaos. I had to stand for about 50 minutes, either on the crowded bus or, after climbing with great difficulty three flights of stairs to a high jet-bridge (I am 76), standing there forever with 200 persons waiting to get access to the plane. Totally unacceptable. They started the boarding process early (50 minutes before departure), but passengers were allowed to actually board the plane at the time it was supposed to take off."
Pros: "More space in business class (777-300) than many other airlines."
Cons: "Entertainment very limited. No adjustable air vents in this aircraft"
Pros: "Spacious business class seats, excellent meals"
Cons: "Lack of ventilation in cabin, and staff refusal to turn heaters down (in September), very limited entertainment options."
Pros: "Great crew and entertainment. Terrible experience at CDG airport but that’s the airports fault."
Cons: "Both flights through Detroit were re-routed, our luggage was lost for 4 days."
Cons: "They made me check my carryon rolly which is allowed on every other plane in the world, which meant going all the way back into a chaos of hundreds of people to check in. Because I had a connecting flight to New York in London, the check in caused many problems...and everything inside soaking wet"
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Food could be better, or at least be provided an option to purchase an upgraded meal. Also, insufficient amount of drinking water provided to passengers."
Pros: "Crew was wonderful and welcoming!"
Cons: "More water provided during the flight. Also, the second meal was not very good."
Cons: "Air conditioning too cold. Wasn't offered an evening meal. My luggage went missing and I'm still waiting for it to be delivered."
Pros: "Extremely hot the plane"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Food could have been much better in comparison with other airlines."
Cons: "Departure delayed, reschedules and then cancelled without any direct notification to us with 2 first class tickets !! If we didn’t have Kayak we would be sitting in the airport !,,"
Cons: "Flying back to US, passsengers get charged for their luggage. Which this is not informed to us, neither On our email nor when we were checking ( for free) in Us"
Pros: "Good selection of movies"
Pros: "The Air France service was ok. Got me to my destination on time and alive."
Cons: "I flew out on KLM on what felt like a new plane. Amazing service, seat, temperature, entertainment and food. In stark comparison Air France’s plane was old, too hot, poor entertainment choices and system and average food which for the French was surprising!"
Pros: "Timely and smooth teansit."
Cons: "Food has a way to go to be appetising."
Cons: "The food was cold. We were served about 40 minutes after most of the plane got their food. The overhead compartments kept opening by themselves through out the flight. Food was horrible."
Pros: "Very nice stews. Food was A plus compared to US airlines AND included. Great list of movies etc."
Pros: "The crew and flight was faultless"
Cons: "We were not advised of a flight number change or checking in location change. This could have resulted in us missing our flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 times and when I was finally put on a flight that was leaving, they failed to check the connection in Paris (Left me 10 minutes to get from the aircraft to the other plane!) I was moved to SAA in the end after a truly traumatic time in Johannesburg. This is not the first time I have suffered at the hands of Air France sadly. Needless to say, I wont be booking with Air France again."
Pros: "La entrada"
Cons: "El resto de cosas"
Pros: "The space and the people"
Pros: "Everything was very prefect and would love to fly again."
Pros: "Although we departed late from Paris, it arrived on time to Mexico City. Most of the stewardess very professional and kind."
Cons: "Although we traveled in Business, all business cabins were full of children, tired crying, walking around. My suggestion to AIR France would be that the small cabin of business were assigned to adults only. Regarding food, some options were not available when our turn came."
Pros: "Good service at gate and on board"
Pros: "Nice food Right in time Police and customs formalities easy"
Cons: "Poor comfort in business class No entertainment at all"
Pros: "It was on time and the crew was good"

Cons: "Leg room cramp. Flight arrived late as a result missed connection home."

Pros: "the food"
Cons: "no room for legs"
Pros: "Good on a short flight"
Cons: "Paying for carry on due to weight limit. First time this ever happened!"
Pros: "It was a 30min flight not much to say The crew on the ground really took care of us"
Cons: "The delay in the flight without even informing us of the reasons. Changing the boarding gates twice, and no options in the meal."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Plane late departing allegedly because of cleaning the plane, but why was the cleaning done that late? Also, ground crew remarkably uninformed about what was going on in the plane. Poor communication between plane and ground crew. No explanation from pilot as to continuing reason for delay even after we boarded. Departure time, 1.00 pm, boarded at 1.10, actual departure time 1.45, causing me to almost miss my connection and definitely causing my bags to miss the connection."
Pros: "Cabin Crew and food selections were top notch"
Cons: "Seat configuration as a first class ticket was awful. Same configuration as economy class but by leaving the middle seat empty constituted first class. I'm 6'-1" and missed the legroom...."
Pros: "Boarding sevece was very nice and helpful Thanks so much"
Pros: "Crew was wonderful Helpful, pleasant, capable"
Cons: "Waiting for late passengers & their luggage"
Pros: "The food was good, the staff was very friendly and very nice,"
Cons: "The seat configuration in economy is unacceptable, the leg room is terrible and overall a very uncomfortable flight of more than 7 hours"
Pros: "Movie selection was awesome! Food was good too."
Cons: "Too many interruptions. Every time there's an announcement, it interrupts the movies and some of the announcements were completely unnecessary and there were so many of them, it was like constant interruptions, really annoying."
Pros: "Was upgraded to Business class, so the food was acceptable. Comfort score also reflects the Business class seat. Cabin crew were friendly and efficient."
Cons: "One bag did not arrive in Toronto, apparently delayed in Paris."
Cons: "Disorganised boarding with people allowed to bring on multiple and oversize bags that by the airlines own admission delayed departure"
I had an excellent experience with Ethiopian Airlines.
Better variety with meals
Old Boeing 737 for a 7 hour flight (usually it is a wide body 777 or 787). Business class seats are worn, no entertainment, flight was delayed and arrived more than an hour late. Boarding was by bus where we waited long in the bus and then had to stand in the rain in queue waiting to board.
I've never been served three bread courses in a single meal before. Was really impressed by the novelty of that.
Good and efficient service. Food quality was poor though. Also, my seat hadn't been cleaned from previous flight (pocket still full of gargbage).

Cons: "The seats were less comfortable for me"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and the seat comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing I can think of yet."

Pros: "the flight wasn't good at all, was expecting a better and comfortable seat, but the it was a smaller flight and the seats weren't adjustable"
Cons: "at this segment you mus put a 350, which will be more cost effective and should be cheaper in nature,"
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Cons: "They need to improve on thier inflight menu and the check-in and boarding experience"
Pros: "They an amazing crew"
Cons: "They need to improve on the flight check-in and boarding at thier airport in Bole, it is so messy. Also thier inflight menu is nothing special"
Pros: "Crew was really great - helpful and kind."
Cons: "Both flights delayed which meant I missed my connecting flight. Stuck in Rome airport for several hours with no information about rescheduled flight. Finally figured it out with help of Rome airport information desk."
Pros: "Very good,on time good service"
Cons: "Better seats on business in boing 737 800"
Pros: "I love the entertainment and frequent availability of food and drinks"

Cons: "No Gin & Tonic Bus transfer to airplane for international flight? Twice...?"
Pros: "The crew practically ignored my request for medical aid. They were not friendly and super occupied. The seats were too uncomfortable."

Pros: "The crew was great. Extremely accommodating for families."
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "We were delayed for extremely long"
Pros: "Excellent airline overall Great seats for sleeping"
Cons: "Business class seats are not well appointed Nowhere to put a bottle of water - storage handbag and shoes etc could not be reached without undoing the seatbelt and screen far away from the seat Voice commentary was muffled and therefore unable to be heard"
Pros: "we had an overnight stay in addis ababa so we got a free accommodation in town, that was so great, a chance to see town and get a good night sleep before our next flight. the plane is big with screens so you can watch movies, the seat is comfortable, even for a tall guy like me (1.9 m)."
Cons: "It did took a lot of time since we landed until we got our bus to take us to town to our hotel. we waited in the airport for more than one hour, it was late, and we were tired. but after we got to the hotel, it was perfect"
Pros: "Will never fly this airline again"
Cons: "The food was bad and on the second stretch the airline did a stop over in Cairo that was not originally planned and delayed the flight by over 3 hours making me miss my connection flights and forcing me to rebuy tickets since there was no ground staff at Rome that could handle the situation. Made me end up losing 1000 usd in tickets I had to buy. Not the way I'm used to be treated as a business class costumer"
Pros: "Attendants were courteous and the spacing is better than some airlines, but that’s about it."
Cons: "Check in was a disaster: no logical control of 100s of people; delayed on the tarmac for 1:45 for a “minor technical reason” that apparently had nothing to do with the actual operation of the plane that prevented me from making my next flight. Food was terrible. Flight attendants could have been more helpful about my missed connection."
Pros: "I liked they way how did they respect time ( punctual). They were so nice with passengers."
Cons: "On board attendants not the friendliest Kids food options very limited"
Pros: "Seats are reasonably comfortable with sufficient storage space Food was OK"
Cons: "Chech in was poor - didn’t have priority stickers for business class luggage. Had to go to different counter for hotel voucher. Overall not good and professional Didn’t have ice on the plane ( for drinks, water etc)"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Poor registration, Long queue for bagage scanning in very hot airport Aircraft and business seat just medium"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Good not that great - a suggestion - why not something like fresh bread (sandwiches) with cheese and tomato on it - bread often not so fresh"
Pros: "Very calm, professional and willing to help you enjoy the flight as much as possible. They show true concern and not a detached professional management that you get from most flight attendants of other airlines."
Cons: "The services at the airport was terrible. The Booked me a flight with only a 30 minute layover. When I try telling the people before boarding the plane, big Norred me. When I told the flight attendant she said she would talk to the captain to see if there’s a way I could get a ride to my next plane so I wouldn’t miss it. That never happened. When we got off the plane no one at the airport would help us and when I was trying to run to my next terminal one of the officers at the airport told me to slow down because I wouldn’t miss the plane and I was fine. When I asked help with directions and told him I was afraid of missing my flight people laughed and walked away. When I finally found my terminal and got to it, my flight had already took off seven minutes prior. I absolutelyHated my experience flying with Ethiopian air. The seats are uncomfortable on the plane, not all the seats recline back the same level, and when I was eating dinner I decided to eat chicken since I can’t eat beef and halfway through the check in my stomach started her and I looked up the chicken and it was still pink inside."
Pros: "The flight crew was nice. We received a hot lunch even though it was a short flight which was nice."
Cons: "Boarding was interesting. It should have been an easy boarding as it is a small regional airport. Instead it seemed they went out of their way to make it as confusing as possible. Instead of going through security over here lets have you wrap around the hallway to just have to come back to where you were before?"
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"
Pros: "Excellent food, very friendly and helpful crew e"
Cons: "Entertainment center did not work Limited storage place in business class for items like mobile devices etc"
Pros: "This was an A-350 and the plane was very nice. Better entertainment system than the 777. The flight was smooth and the food was good."
Cons: "It took quite a while before the first service. It would be nice to have a drink service sooner."
Cons: "flight smelled like pee"
Cons: "Did not provide special meal although I called ahead to request it."
Pros: "food and beer were fine"
Cons: "4 flights ,4 delays. poor customer service . every things is very slow ."
Cons: "flight got delayed"
Cons: "I sent them an email about an issue with my flight but they didn't get back to me"
Pros: "Prior seating options, friendly air hostess, and vegan meal options."
Cons: "Flight from U.S had frequent meals, flight to Ghana had a sandwich and meal, and the time in between the two was extremely long, after been up extremely early to depart. It would also be awesome to have Ethiopian meal option, like injere"
Pros: "Great prices, and helpful staff"
Cons: "The food was mediocre, almost poor."
Cons: "I'm 1.89 and knees are jammed on this flight. Legroom is better on their long haul flights."
Pros: "Good food and drinks"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "Please have a vegetarian option that does not contain cheese."
Pros: "Fabulous. On time departure, 15 min early arrival into Addis. Service was outstanding"
Cons: "About time they introduced WiFi on flights"
Pros: "Was a bit concerned because I only had a 45 min layover in Addis to change plans, howeve Ethiopian Air made sure we were met coming of the plane and facilitated a fast transit. Checked luggage also all made it through. I was pleasantly surprised. I flew Nairobi to Cape Town with connection in Addis."
Pros: "787 was comfortable"
Cons: "Food was edible but no more. Flat angle beds I thought had been extinct, especially on a new 787"
Pros: "Entertainment options were good and they fed you several times"
Cons: "-changed flight schedule several times after booking ticket -3/4 segments were delayed causing me to miss connections - staff unaware of procedures -several mechanical problems with plane -still do not have bags after 7 days -no compensation provided for inconvenience -poor customer service"
I love the entertainment. I think the food could be better
Excellent check in agent in JFK! aisle seat OK. Boarding agents helpful Flight from Brussels to Tel Aviv VERY UNCOMFORTABLE middle seat with snoring men on either side of me. I would have appreciated free water.
Very efficient loading and take off procedure in Geneva. One of the quickest sit down and go departures. Could have had more current video selections. Our plane was equipped with mostly first class and economy comfort seats so it seemed less crowded and roomy in these pandemic times.
My bag was and is still left behind
Free food or entertainment should work
Pros: "By far the best of the 4 flights involved in my trip. Everything went smooth except for deboarding, but that's because of the people, not the airline staff. There was constantly an attendant walking the plane offering water refills entire flight. 3 beverage services, 2 meals, and constant water. Very very good experience"
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "Food quality"
Pros: "All seats were very comfortable and spots where I can view everything and crew were awesome."
Cons: "Local travelers should be offered even water."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, seats were ok"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for almost 2 hours, there was no explanation, just an apology."
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!"
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."
Cons: "There is no entertainment which is ok. You had to pay for everything in flight. Their carry on luggage size allowance is smaller than any airline I’ve ever flown"
Cons: "The flight and its crew did well but I will NEVER use it again if it has to transit in Brussels. We were bussed to the T terminal ( ‘incidentally’ where were all the AFRICAN flights transit) were we had a 5 hour layover, which is fine with me, but the terminal has no restaurant or any decent stores."
Pros: "flight was awesome"
Cons: "the only thing i dislike about etihad airlines is they didn’t provide me accommodation for 19 hours long stay over ..! even i met one of the lay incharge of etihad she told me that it’s your problem you have to look out for ...she didn’t help me at all"
Cons: "Flight delays is a constant problem with this company"
Cons: "It was delayed. I paid very expensive to fly on Business to be on the first row. Because every minute count for me on this trip. But it was delayed. I feel I should get a refund for sum of the money I spent"
Pros: "After our first flight had been cancelled, we needed to be comforted by Brussels Airlines that our return flight would be OK. And we were. Though there were slight delays due to technical checks at boarding time, everything else was on schedule and we even landed slightly ahead of time, never a bad thing. The flight was smooth and quite pleasurable. Now we are prepared to experience flying with Brussels Airlines again."
Pros: "So so"
Cons: "But connecting flight is just 30 minutes delayed schedule because of airline benefits. I have to run the gate and I can make it but I heard 2 passengers didn't. I didn't hear this situation. When I ask staffs how about connecting flight to Nice, staffs just told me your flight is ok."
Pros: "On our longer flight, we were thrilled- nice crew, delicious food, spacious, great pilot, and enjoyable entertainment experience. However, on our shorter flight from Brussels to telaviv, not only was the crew completely inattentive, but they were intentive to some very disturbing things including children who were pulling the hair of other customers and jumping up-and-down in the aisles of the airplane. There was no available entertainment whatsoever. In addition the food was extremely expensive and not particularly tasty. The plane was uncomfortable and smelled atrocious. These 2 vastly different experiences almost made me feel like I was taking 2 different airlines. Please keep consistency."
Cons: "I didn't like the inconsistency of the 2 different planes that I was on. If you are going to have entertainment you should have some form of it on all of your airplanes. The idea that food that you need to buy is so expensive is absurd. I was really blown away by how badly the plane smelled. It was almost as if I was in a bathroom. And on top of that I really felt very unsafe with children jumping up-and-down kicking people pulling their hair etc. While it isn't the job of the flight attendants to be parents, they certainly need to be aware of safety concerns for the rest of the passengers."
Pros: "Edficient boarding and pleasant onboard service"
Cons: "Cleanliness of plane and limited movies"
Cons: "Delay, nothing to eat, poor service !"
Cons: "Not enough space for my legs"
Pros: "Love that there's space for the economy and the seats are comfortable"
Cons: "There was nothing to do and would be nice if it had wifi"
Pros: "They gave us a pillow and blanket so we could sleep. They offered a good selection of movies and other entertainment. The airline staff was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Seating was cramped but all airlines treat their three class clients like cattle."
Cons: "crew indifferent; entertainment limited; food not so good"
Cons: "Cramped seats, no video, paltry food service (the "continental breakfast" consisted of exactly one slice of banana bread). And lousy coffee."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "No much choice of Movies in the entertainment program"
Cons: "Plane was malfunctioning- the electric went out several times ont be way to take off and right after landing. Food and drinks only for sale. Boarding late"
Cons: "Brussels Airlines was obviously throwing around the luggage as my hard shell suitcase was cracked irreparably when it arrived at the carousel."
Pros: "Flight crew was great, service was excellent."
Cons: "Flight was very cold."
Pros: "The food was tasty and it was nice to enjoy a glass of wine with dinner"
Pros: "Flight was delayed and we had to spend time Waiting both in the terminal and the plane. But crew was very nice!"
Cons: "Would have been nice to have been given a free snack or some water while waiting. We got a tiny chocolate which was nice but didn't make up for the waiting time"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Horrible food if you opt for Halal. Imagine having to eat the same thing from start to end in an international flight. Major turbulence, got sick to the stomach when I got home. I have to admit my overall experience was very very poor."
Cons: "Very noisy crew Not enough space for hand bugs."
Pros: "Nice plane, seats, staff. I was told the regular economy seats did not recline. they do. I was able to upgrade on on leg to economy privlige and then it was much more roomy. The food was good for me : )"
Pros: "I flew on United, not Brussels, on this leg, too."
Pros: "Did not like airline so much."
Cons: "Staff did not allow access to lavatories when they were serving drinks and the long waits after were ridiculous"
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: "Second time I called customer support a A nice lady named Elisia was super friendly and helpful and was able to switch me to another flight on the same day."
Cons: "Received a text message that my flight back to the US was canceled. The first time I called Brussels Airlines customer service, I was offered only the same flight one or two days later. Phone support person was very unfriendly and unwilling to look at other options like booking me on another flight that same day."
Pros: "I hated that I had to do my own check in, the flight check in and the luggage dropping. I was unsure as id I had done it correctly, and even after the staff revised my luggage drop reciept, the luggae was not delivred appropriately. The flight was delayed, which made me have to o rush all over LHR, where I pretended to have breakfast."
Cons: "Unpolite and stressed, rushy staff on board. On top of that, all the running throgh costumes and pretty much the whole LHR airport, and what I hated the most was my luggage arriving 12hrs late."
Pros: "Due to my husbands frequent flyer status, we were able to upgrade coach seats to premium free of charge - which afforded priority boarding and more comfortable seats - although, there was not much difference in legroom or general space. This flight was not full, so I had an empty seat next to me - always a good thing on a long flight. Lots of movies and entertainment available to fill up the hours. Served food and drinks constantly (3 meals plus, if I remember correctly) but the food was pretty bad. One of the bathrooms was a generous size, which made it more comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding was confusing. They separated out groups but did not make clear where each group was to go, which caused unnecessary jam ups. Stewardess on this flight that served my section was rather grumpy and unhelpful. Seat in front of me was broken so it leaned way back into my lap, making it difficult to eat or read on my e-reader. I had a premium seat, but there did not seem to be any difference in leg room or the size of the seat than normal coach. Although there was several meals - the food was horrible. Best to take your own aboard. We were delayed getting off the ground, having to sit on the plane for a while before take off. We landed over an hour late."
Pros: "Crew was polite in spite of their frustrations and ours."
Cons: "Power outage at Brussels airport caused a delay (no ones fault), a drunk man was let on the plane, which led to us detouring from taxi to another gate to have police escort him off. This led to extra security checks of hand and checked baggage. They found an extra bag? Which led to extra, extra security checks. Worker fell off the luggage conveyor belt, plane was surrounded by medical staff and an ambulance. We finally took off, 3 hours late. I arrived at St. Petersburg, but my luggage did not. The next day I found out it had been sent to Frankfurt. An absolute disaster, many of the problems could have been prevented by more diligence from the airline."
