Pros: "It was comfortable"
Cons: "They should start giving out snacks"
Cons: "Comfier seats Some entertainment...there was none. Plane very hot and claustrophobic"
Cons: "Seats are not comfortable for a 14 hour flight. One meal was served 1 hour before landing, Need for more drinks and food during a 14 hour flight. Flight was held at gate for 45 minutes before takeoff without explanation. Luggage was not transferred from a connecting flight."

Pros: "terrible airline"
Cons: "delayed my flights twice"
Cons: "According to the KQ App the flight was direct to Cape Town but when we got to the airport we found the plane was stopping in Livingston’s. The result was we were an hour late. Most annoying. Surely the App can be amended to alert us of such changes"
Pros: "Both segmrnts left on time. The on- flight crew were pleasant. The 787 on first flight comfortable in biz class for a nap. Food service well carried out by crew."
Cons: "The 737 on second flight ....the long overnight one... Was very uncomfortable in biz class. On arrival in Nairobi...the hub city...there was no staff. A.c. no working or escalator in airport. Biz line for security not open. Food below average. No breakfast as we one meal."
Pros: "Crew efficient and eager to please. Generous with food and drink."
Cons: "Some seats had damaged entertainment equipment. One seat had a damaged USB charging port. We just used the one from the next seat. Another had a damaged remote control for the entertainment system. Still usable via touch though."

Cons: "The delay was painful."
Pros: "Kenya airways theme song"
Pros: "Everything went well as scheduled"
Pros: "Food and entertainment was good"

Pros: "I liked the staff members in the plane. they were very nice"
Cons: "the food portions are too small"
Cons: "My flight never left Kigali and neither etihad nor Kenyan was able to help"
Pros: "Te time of te flight"

Cons: "No major complaints except punctuality."

Pros: "Wine selection"
Cons: "Food was just okay in business class"
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: "The crew on the ground and flight crew were very friendly. The flight took less time than I had thought and this forced the cabin crew to rush with serving the snacks."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "35 minute departure delay with not even an attempt at an explanation. Broken seat. Cramped."
Cons: "The airlines changed the flight date last minute. They told us they'll take us to a hotel but by the time we reached the hotel after a long wait for visa we only had 3 hours left to go back to the airport. I missed my connection flight from Bangkok and I had to spend a hotel in Bangkok which I ended up paying extra for my hotel in Bangkok and connection flight from Bangkok. The airlines was not willing to do anything about my other flight I missed and me spending overnight in Bangkok."
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"
Cons: "Made it to the airport 1hour and 15 min before the flight and was denied boarding. Airport would not allow me to see the ticket agent. Terrible experience."
Pros: "Everything fine! Especially appreciated that flights were on time, even early."
Cons: "No announcements made as to what gate # or boarding. We almost missed the flight because of the lack of information. Airport staff were as equally confused. Entertainment did not work at all."
Cons: "Poor Service. Did not care attitude."
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: "great food, entertainment was good. host and hostess were friendly and professional"
Pros: "The arrival to Monrovia."
Cons: "Losing baggage for a week."
Pros: "Food and service"
Cons: "Time to update, renovate and scale up the fleet flying Africa. Impossible to sleep in economy."
Pros: "Friendly staff Good food"
Cons: "The movies were not working"
Pros: "I liked the food and actual service on the flight"
Cons: "The airport staff sucked!! VERY RUDE! Acted annoyed when I asked how long the flight delay was or for directions to the next gate. I know I am an American and used to different services. When a foreigner asks me for guidance, I go out of my way to help. When out of your element, rude staff just add to the stress of being delayed! I hate Kenya Airport staff!!!"
Pros: "Ground check-in, onboard staff, plane comfort were all fine and what normally happens. Nice leather seats and space on Embraer plane."
Cons: "At check-in we were told the departure time was an hour late - when I arrived at 2:00am. As I only had 1 hour and 55 minutes in Nairobi before flight to Johannesburg, I was a bit concerned and had to rush from plane to departure gate. Pilot said flight was late due to " plane arriving late", which I think meant - it isn't our fault."
Cons: "The planes on this route are also very old with manual screens,unnecessary delays. I mean KQ needs to style up. Another airline will soon sweep them off business"
Cons: "Not much space between rows,everybody reclined their seat, you could barley move"
Pros: "on board crew members were pleasant and efficient."
Cons: "rude and dismissive ground crew. delayed flight. and when we got to Nairobi we discovered that several items had been stolennout of our checked luggage."
Pros: "Service by one attendant Helen- courteous and helpful with Dufree"
Cons: "Services by male attendant very deplorable, lacks courtesy to clients. Old aircraft with overhead TV screens showing only one channel or flight route. In this age and time, KQ can do better for the obscene amounts we pay. Flight plan changed and we were not informed till we entered the plane."
Boarding confusion, just asked for a cup of water and the crew answers was shocking
Retard cuisant et criard. Inadmissible. Corruption et pratique non recommandable du personnel chargé de faire le Check des billets avant de passer au comptoir d’enregistrement. La dame qui me recevait voulait à tout prix me coller pour se faire d’argent. L’avion devrait faire escale à Douala donc on ne descend pas au sol. Pourquoi me demander où exiger que je devrais avoir un visa sur le Cameroun. C’est inadmissible. J’allais au Tchad et elle sait bien que je n’avais pas non plus besoin de visa compte tenu des accords de réciprocité entre état. J’avais mon visa et pourtant elle insistait. Ce qui était marrant ces collègues étaient complices. J’ai dû hausser le ton et l’insulter proprement. Mon adrénaline a monté. Trop de corrompus et moins de gens intègres dans vos rangs que ce soit à Cotonou et surtout à Accra. A Cotonou à l’agence principale, il vous faut un audit pour le personnel chargé de ventes des billets. Merci de transmettre à Asky
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
Crew member was rude, staff needs to be friendly
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.
There is no food or entertainment on such a short flight. The crew was fast and efficient. The one thing you should know is it is open seating so ignore your boarding pass seat number and sit where you like.
Stay away from flights going through Lome if that is not your final destination. The agents at the Accra airport are also thieves. They held onto my boarding pass for my upgraded ticket which I paid an extra $800; untill I paid $260. for excess baggage, when I was entitled to 3 free because of my upgraded ticket. I could have kept my economy seat and paid only $260, instead I paid $1060!. The agent held onto my boarding pass untill I had paid and had only 20 minutes to clear TSA. Pleasw do not fly Ethiopian Air via Lome to Ghana!!!!. You will regret this very e expensive experience.
Cons: "Bottle water could taste better"
Cons: "The entertainment console doesn’t work"
Cons: "Missing all my 3 bags and still at the airport"
Pros: "Keep up the good work"
Cons: "Flight Delay."
Cons: "It would be much better if they didn’t lose my 2 luggage bags with no proper compensation to offer - 50$ 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!"
Pros: "I like everything"
Cons: "Nothing better everything is very good"
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: "I like everything"
Cons: "Expensive Items were stolen from my checked luggage"
Cons: "Overall good but old plane with limited services for entertainment I did not eat but my neighbour did and it looked pretty goo"
Cons: "Getting my luggage on time"
Cons: "Slight delay by grounds staff to clear flight for take off"
Pros: "It was excellent trip"
Pros: "Very average experience."
Cons: "Very average experience."
Pros: "Staff here are excellent"
Cons: "Seats a bit old"
Pros: "Friendly flight crew."
Cons: "Boarding staff/check-in staff don't know anything about the 'visa volant' visa on arrival for Kinshasa and thought I was making it up. Nearly refused to let me board."
Pros: "The aircraft was clean and the food served"
Cons: "The turbulent"
Cons: "The transition too long"
Cons: "Missed flight due to wrong booking information which showed flight departing at 12:00 noon; upon arrival for check-in, was informed flight departed at 10:30 am"
Cons: "It all started at the check point at Newark airport. While checking into my flight I noticed that the transit Time in Lomé was only 40 mns, so made it a point to ensure if my luggage would make it with me to Dakar. So upon arrival in Lome and as I suspected, I was rushed through the gate as the last passenger. Hence I asked the boarding agent again if my suitcases are on the plane: yes ma’am just get on the plane. Now I land in Dakar with no suitcases and no way of knowing when they will arrive. The staff were rude and unapologetic, plus they ask me to come back to the airport to collect my luggage when it gets here.UNBELIEAVABLE"
Cons: "No, food was given, the water was HOT, and there was a roach on the plane. I fly quite often maybe 3 or 4 times a year and I have never seen a roach on any flight! The seat was incredibly dirty and beat up. To pay so much money for such a disregard for customers career and safety was quite troubling to me. This flight too had no air conditioning going at all. From boarding to the 45-minute flight my mother and I, as well as the other passengers including babies were sweating. Customers should not have to deal with such things people can get severely ill. This is beyond unsafe for customers and the staff. I am not sure who is responsible for this situation but I am not okay with it."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "I travel Asky often due to limited carriers. They are constantly late."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Chairs looked very dirty and old."
Pros: "The short connecting flight."
Cons: "Virtually everything about the boarding process was disorganized. We were met by Asky staff shouting out names to hand over our boarding passes for the connecting flight. The flight was well over two hours late (for a 40-minute flight, this was frustrating and completely unexplained by the crew). We had to be transported by bus to the plane and that was another hour-long process with very little apology from the overworked and overwhelmed staff. Ethiopian Airlines and ASKY appears to be a bargain in terms of price but I would be highly unlikely to use them in the future after such a disappointing introduction. I’m sure they lost several dozen repeat clients because of the disorganized nature of their transfers from Newark and the nonchalant attitude of their staff. I would not recommend this, especially for elderly and disabled passengers or families with young children."
Pros: "Am impressed with d service, flight smoothes, and d crew members. Both at check-in and on board. Keep up d good job."
Cons: "Having to walk on tarmac to board d plane. There should always be a walk way connector that connects d airplane to d airport terminal. Thanks"
Pros: "The staff was helpfull"
Cons: "The fact that u have to walk to a different part of the airport to pay for excess luggage. Getting the the pos system didn't work. Smh. Had to look for my bank and make a tf to a sky. Shame and waste of time."
Pros: "The food was good"
Pros: "The flight itself was quick and pretty stress-free. It wasn't a full flight so there was space for everyone to comfortably spread out. An okay experience overall. It the human interaction with the staff and customer experience could use some improvement."
Cons: "Checking in Took 45 minutes for whatever reason. The ground staff were really slow with the process. They also made me check in my small carry-on bag due to their frankly inconsistent carry-on regulation (I saw many other passengers on board with 2 or 3 sizeable pieces and the flight wasn't even close to being nearly full)."
Pros: "The cabin crew were very much on the fair side and helpful"
Cons: "My flight to Lagos was overbooked, I was at the airport in plenty of time for check in. When I arrived, I was told my reservation was sold. I had to go to a roach motel, paid to stay there, and left the next day on long flight with 2 stops and a lay over, instead of a direct flight to Lagos. I was never reimbursed for my wasted time or hotel fees I had to pay. They all spoke French, I do not."
Pros: "The crew were nice."
Cons: "The lady at the check-in counter did accept to check my luggage to my final destination. As result I have to check-in twice (Abidjan and Lome). Waiting for the luggage and re-check in twice was a waste of time."
Pros: "It's good. Will fly again with them"
Pros: "My flight was shifted an entire day late, interrupting my previous plans. I also had carry-on luggage that was almost checked through to my final destination, however on a previous flight of their's they had lost my checked baggage. I would not recommend this airline to anyone who needs flights to be on time or luggage to arrive"
Cons: "The itinerary changed drastically and we cancelled our flights."
Pros: "The service, food, and logistics were all mediocre. The flight there wasn't bad, but there was also nothing I would recommend."
Cons: "I didn't like that the crew seemed confused the entire time and had no structure as to how to coordinate the flight."
