Rued and unhelpful airport staff when asking for directions. Food is really bad.
The entertainment selection was great, boarding process was smooth. However, the staff were so rude, my tray table was broken so had drinks split on me. I had a child coughing on me and kicking me in her sleep. The person in front of me put his seat down so far that my knees were against the seat (I’m only 5’9). The person behind me used her tray table to sleep so I couldn’t put my seat back. She woke up for breakfast, by which point I wanted sleep so I put my seat back and she complained about it so I had to put the seat upright again!
Cons: "The entertainment system did not work properly"
Pros: "Very friendly staff, prompt service, smooth boarding, clean cabin."
Cons: "I usually love the food on Emirates but this was really not good. Barely edible!"
Pros: "Crew were great, entertainment was great, all in all a really comfortable flight despite not getting an aisle seat which would have made it even better"
Cons: "I discovered when I hit Dubai that despite having an eight an a half hour layover that I didn't qualify for the free hotel I thought I did qualify for as someone with an eight hour plus flight so that was a little disappointing have had it before so assumed it was on all flights but that ended up being a negative surprise..."
Pros: "Boarding and Crew are excellent toilets are clean Gluten Free meals are available, that's a big plus"
Cons: "Lots of movies to choose from however I felt the choices were similar in a way! ( Example: you'll find the Drama movies are almost the same as the Romantic movies or the Comedy movies)"
Cons: "The seats on the 777-300ER were tiny compared to the seats on the A380 from JFK to dubai. My wife and I are both small people and we were cramped. This is very unfair to us and even so to larger people on such a long leg The entertainment screens were also very poor. Small, low res"
Pros: "The other services was okey"
Cons: "The checking in at the airport terrible"
Pros: "great flight service with accommodating staff. in flight entertainment had awesome variety"
Pros: "Very responsive and friendly crew"

Cons: "the boarding process was awful. they called for people to go into the pregate area at and the plane had not yet arrived. once in the pregate area the is no access to food or water and you cannot bring in a bottle of water from the terminal"
Pros: "Wonderful airline, great movie collection, ended up leaving one of my bags behind in Dubai but they were delivered to my home in one pice"
Cons: "The time between flights was so little and with a big airport, literally had to run from one end to the other"
Pros: "Everything is really amazing about UAE, service, amenities, entertainment options, leg room."
Cons: "Before the plan even took off for our 14+ hour flight I could tell the seat was uncomfortable, and it was going to be an issue. I don't know why this would be overlooked, as everything else was best in class, but it made for a fairly uncomfortable experience."
Pros: "Javier the flight attendant was so welcoming and attentive. Flight got l fit late, but arrived on time. Service was efficient and respectful. Was not as crowded as prior flight and was able to eat the meal"
Cons: "Time of flight really sucked. 4:00 AM departure meant arriving at 1.00 AM. Tough way to start a day"
Cons: "We reached very fast"
Pros: "Emirates flight was fine. Problem was booking a South African Airways codebase flight on Kayak. Neither SAA or Emerates were able to look up our booking reference and so we did not get seat assignments until the airport."
Cons: "Codebase flights and no one looking as us as customers."
Pros: "I flew from Orlando DL to Dubai ,and from Dubai to cape town and both flight I was selected to seat on the middle seat,f that happens on my return flights to Orlando fl ,I will never fly emirates again"
Pros: "Flight appeared less than half-full, I had a full 4 seats to stretch out. Yes, this was just lucky, but very much appreciated."
Cons: "Dull food."
Pros: "Great crew, seats, entertainment options. A 28hr trip felt like 5 because it was so comfortable."
Cons: "I did not like that only one bag is allowed on the flight if you are in economy."
Cons: "Stuck with a hotel I couldn't use after the booking agent broke their integration and I never got the update the flight had been rescheduled two days later. Will not use kayak or Emirates again"

Pros: "Good entertainment system and nice staff."
Cons: "I have 2 six-hour flights connecting in Dubai. Only one meal on each. Seems pretty stingy."
Cons: "I was not let onto the flight in Entebbe because I arrived at the airport an hour before the flight departed. I was given no notice of this rule (apparently only applicable on Emirates flights) and was forced to delay my trip 2 days and pay an additional $1045 for a replacement flight home."
Pros: "The individual were uniform polite and professional, even in the economy section of the craft which is not always the case in some airlines. Boarding and deplaning via two entry / access points; something all airlines should seek to do."
Cons: "Things like the plane layout which focuses on maximizing seating space over common space like toilets (not enough) and cross craft aisles so crew and passengers could do more than just one thing at a time; issues the crew had nothing to do with. Rather plane designers being pushed to maximize seats over all else."
Pros: "The food this time was amazing...The time of boarding was good. No delays"
Cons: "The touch screens were hanging making it difficult to watch movies. Also they served a lot of booze to people and one of my neighbours vomited in arrival. It was a mess"
Cons: "Other than the delay in boarding, which resulted in a bit of chaos, everything went very well."
Pros: "Great hospitality from the crew and quality plane facilities."
Pros: "They boarded us very fast."
Cons: "The food is same"
Pros: "Service is fantastic and all the amenities. They pretty much think of everything. The warm towels at the end of the flight, the travel bag for the long international trips were perfect. The staff is very welcoming and helpful and we were in economy so I can only imagine what it must be like in First Class! Also the free entertainment is phenomenal- wide range of choice. We also enjoyed the outside cameras that help you see views from the outside. Pretty cool!"
Cons: "Little more leg room. When the chair in front of younreclines ot gets a little tight."
Pros: "Being able to sleep comfortably Great staff Food good rather than great but not easy on flight. Well chosen good wines. Chauffeur service to & from airport Ease of checkin"
Pros: "The overall service was excellent as the flight left on time and the flight attendants were attentive. The food onboard was perhaps the best quality I have ever had on a flight."
Pros: "Entertainment facilities very good. Important for those long trips. Food good too"
Pros: "Very courteous flight attendants. I liked the fact that they came from several countries and looked like a strong, united team. I also enjoyed the great selection of movies, music, news, and TV shows. The space between the chairs is more generous than other airlines I used in the past."
Cons: "There was a long line for boarding in Entebbe and very few staff attending the process. I did not have access to online checking, although I received the message that I can do it online. Horrible scramble eggs. I could not eat it."
Pros: "Long flight. Not enough overhead space. Crew was great. Food ok. Seats get very uncomfortable on a 15 hour flight"
Pros: "We asked for an imodium and were deplaned and forced to pay $500 as a fine for being ill."
Cons: "Screen was black and white most of flight"

Pros: "The flight was empty and the luxury to choose your open row of seats"
Pros: "The Captain spoke to us a few times and the crew were absolutely amazing. Best flight Ive ever been on."
Pros: "The flight was amazing. The crew was nice and professional. They constantly checked up on us, as well. The food was good for food during a flight and there was nothing lacking in the entertainment department either. There is really not much Emerates could do to make the flight more pleasant."
Cons: "The check in experience is the worst I have ever had. One bag was a little heavy so I had to pay the fee which I was happy to do. But, they took me out of line and up to the office, I then had to wait 30 minutes to be helped only to then learn that the credit card machine was not working. So, I had to get cash from an ATM, which charged a fee, and there was no change available so I ended up paying more than the fee actually was. Then, I had to go back through security and stand in line again just to get my boarding pass. I was at the airport 3 hours early and this disorganized system almost caused me to miss my flight. It was just unprofessional all around."
Pros: "Emirates has the best crew. Very professional, providing excellent service."
Cons: "I liked everything. This is a great airline!"
Cons: "Tough to get a drink"
Cons: "The seat sizes were really small and I didn't get the initial seat s that I requested for. The crew were not very professional when it came to serving all that were on board."

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: "Fligh was on time, front desk staff were very helpfful, flight staff were friendly"
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: "Everything was perfect. On time arrival."
Cons: "Loud Nigerian co-passengers"
Pros: "Timeliness, Service, Cleanliness Comfort"
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: "New airline. Left 20 mins early."
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: "the snack was terrific!"
Pros: "Information during flight"
Cons: "No TV or programmes to entertain slong"
Pros: "on schedule. staff at counters and flight crew were courteous and professional."
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."
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: "Good food, friendly and professional staff, a new and sparkling clean plane, swift retrieval of luggage upon arrival in Kigali. Thank you!"
Pros: "The crew was very welcoming"

Cons: "Food is almost inedible"
Cons: "Time management"
Pros: "Plane was clean and very comfortable, staff was courteous. Surprisingly good food for a short flight"
Cons: "Changed flight times without informing passengers on BOTH of the legs. Staff were polite, but were more interested in following the rules than helping people get on their flights. No customer feedback forms were available"
Pros: "I like the overall service in the plane."
Cons: "I didn't like changing the boarding time."
Pros: "Planes were great and flight crew excellent."
Cons: "On arrival at Kigali airport we were quickly moved through security to the departure area. This area was hot and without any facilities for toilets or water. We sat there for at least 1 hour and was a low light in out trip."
Pros: "Planes were great and flight crew excellent."
Pros: "The crew is nice"
Cons: "Both flights were terribly delayed and while the crew apologized we sat on a small plane. In Entebbe the reason was they overbooked the flight. So leave those people behind to take the next flight, don't keep us prisoners on a plane for hours... Stupid management decisions."
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"
Pros: "RwandAir flew us to Nairobi instead and I thought that was good of them to make that change for us. The above evaluation pertains to the flight to Nairobi."
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: "In general, it was a pleasant flight from Entebbe to Kigali. The Bombardier was in pristine condition. There was no food offered (the flight is 45 minutes) and there is no entertainment available. The crew was pleasant and the seat comfortable (I am 5'11). I would fly again with RwandAir."
Cons: "There was nothing significant enough taken into consideration the characteristics of this flight and the construction in Entebbe."
Pros: "Very professional - gave us a good meal - although flight was a little more than an hour. Will recommend to friends"
Cons: "Service & good landing"
Cons: "The arrival time was stated as 1:40pm but in reality it was a 1:10pm arrival so I had arranged my driver to collect at the wrong time and he wasn't there when I arrived."

Cons: "No entertainment, some few crew members has a bit of an attitude."
Pros: "Free wifibat the airport and the charging stations"
Pros: "It was a short flight and all went well. We even had time for a snack."
Checking in Staff could not print my boarding pass for all my travel legs. We requested to print all boarding pass from the departing airport (Atlanta) and they said they can not do that. We have never experienced something like this in other flights for International travel.
Great crew and good service
The flight was really hot, I am not sure why but there weren’t any air vents for the seats. We had to use our own personal fans to stay cool. The entertainment system was pretty old and hasn’t been updated in a long time. The touch screen wasn’t responsive at all.
The AC didn't work properly - it was hard to breathe with the mask on and it was quite hot. My girlfriend needed 15 minutes to recover (get some fresh air) after the flight.
Rude staff and very complicated boarding experience. Had passport checked 9 times.
Pros: "I only like the hand sanitizer and a mask that gave us"
Cons: "The food they service was bad"
Cons: "My flight delayed and I missed my connection"
Pros: "The flight attendants were kind"
Cons: "The airplane was old and the seats were a little dirty"
Pros: "The seat & the food were better than I’d expected, and, of course, that’s a *big* part of the experience."
Cons: "I had to file a claim with Turkish because my new suitcase (not an expensive suitcase, but still) got seriously chewed up and is now unusable. At least it made it to the destination on time! And the contents were only slightly damaged. I will be happy if I get reimbursed for the suitcase."
Pros: "Everything...the food was delicious, the staff was gracious and always went the extra mile."
Pros: "Service was fine, but we're of no help regarding late arrival and connecting flight status."
Pros: "Crew were great and the airane was clean."
Cons: "The leg room in the economy is very tight my knees were hitting the seat in front of me. Also my special low calorie meal was inedible as the protein was so overcooked."
Pros: "Sleeping accommodations, storage, crew attentiveness in business class was outstanding. 5he business lounge in Istanbul was the best ever. Great airline."
Pros: "Comfort and service."
Pros: "Long time n not in time Food is not enough quality n quantity for health"
Cons: "Must change catering n in time , Staff working in the airport is not pro enough"
Pros: "Courteous flight attendants, simple check-in, good service."
Cons: "I wish the flight attendant brought more water from time to time, as the flight was long."
Pros: "I go economy. It's the most comfortable economy I've ever experienced. Every seat was filled."
Cons: "I have no complaints."
Cons: "After bus arrived at steps kept on it 20 mins. 2 more buses arrived in this time. Still wait. Then let out all at once. Massive queues to board. Poeple not dressed for this. Poor babies crying Maybe 15 mins waiting in 2am cold on tarmac."
Cons: "Entertainment system didn’t work Seats did not recline"
Pros: "Overall it was good."
Cons: "The crew is really not aware of how to deal with passengers of various levels. They don't seem to have the sense of responsibility..."
Cons: "THE bathroom esp at the back of the plan read very dirty. Went floors a d trash that was overflowing."
Pros: "Friendly staff,"
Cons: "My infotainment center was broken for the entire 13 hour ride. Luckily I had my phone but it would have been nice to have the expected entertainment options. The service carts only came through twice leaving a many hour gap with no drink or food service."
Cons: "Late flight While in transit. They wouldn't pay for my meal in Istanbul because my overlay was 3 hrs"
Cons: "The woman at the Rome airport turkish airlines counter scolded us for being a little late to arrive to the airport. She was very rude to say the least."
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 great!"
Pros: "The crew on the plane was kind, accommodating, and polite."
Cons: "Food was dried out and tasteless"
Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "I used the prime lounge in Istanbul and when it was time to go, I was able to practically walk on the plane without any wait. The seats were comfy and didn't have a ton of legroom but it wasn't bad. The staff we're friendly and helpful. The in-flight entertainment had a pretty impressive selection and had one of the best-designed interfaces I've seen so far (and I've ridden a variety of airlines). Last and most important, the food was hands down the BEST I've had on a plane. Turkish is killing it, they're my new go-to airline!"
Cons: "I really can't complain about anything, even if I try! Maybe the touch screen sensitivity on the entertainment console seemed a little off, but that's just nitpicking"
Pros: "The Transfer desk granted our request to switch our flight from Istanbul to Chicago to Istanbul to Los Angeles. A meeting that I had initially scheduled in Chicago was cancelled and would have meant an extra day of travel and hotel stay. By allowing us to go directly to LAX we got home a day earlier and didn't have the hassle of going through customs, checking in & out of a hotel and going through another set of security checks with all our bags. Additionally, we had great service, food and entertainment. Especially liked the wifi that allowed me to read and send emails, texts and do some work."
Cons: "Even though they had at least an hour to transfer the bags from the Chicago flight and put it on the LAX flight, the bags didn't make it and they didn't find them for about 24 hours but did deliver them to our home at 1:45 AM (@37 hours after arriving)"
Pros: "Quite good. For an international flight, the comfort and service could be better. Eg foot rest, a pouch for socks , ear phones"
Cons: "No foot rest, help the short people to store luggage."
Pros: "What's to like about being in a 737 for over 6 hours?"
Cons: "Boarded from the front and rear of the plane. We were in the middle, so it was slow. 6+ hours in a 737 -- I feel like compacted trash. Crew avoids looking at you for fear that you'll talk to them. Worse airline I've been on for communicating. Food just isn't very good."
Pros: "Very clean, comfortable, great service and very kind attendants, great food, accommodating comfort for the long trip I had. Definitely the best airline experience I have ever had and all for an incredible price, under $600 to fly from Miami to Rome!"
Pros: "The flight was on time, lots of amenities, comfortable seats"
Cons: "The flight attendants weren't personable on any of the flights. I'm 6 months pregnant and randomly get hungry. There are snacks like muffin available "anytime" On our long flight from Atlanta to Paris I pressed the button 3 times to see if I could get a muffin, but the attendant alert was turned off remotely and no one came to check on me. Thank God it wasn't some sort of emergency."
Pros: "Boarding staff was very friendly, & kind people"
Cons: "There is no TV Late around 40 min."
Pros: "Hey, two checked bags free, free in flight meal and drinks including alcohol, free in flight movies and music, free headphones, free blankets, and a free toothbrush, yea toothbrush, its like flying in the way way back."
Cons: "The check in lines are very very long and take forever"
Pros: "I have flown with all big airlines including Lufthansa, BA, Delta, American and others. This flight was by far the best experience I had. They have lovely serving crew so no one actually hesitates to ask or want something. They have helped me and my two toddlers along with 3 other similar families of an incredible amount to make sure they are all comfortable. No wonder that received the best airline of europe award for several years in a row...There was only a 20 minutes delay during take-off and we still arrived home a bit early... Very smooth flight, one that I still cant believe I had with my 2 toddlers. Strongly recommended."
Cons: "Leg space a nighrmare!! Was uncomfortable for all the 13 hrs of the flight. Terrible experience"
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."
Cons: "Worst boarding as flight was late and who ever was boarding us was rude, I get in my seat was taken, flight attendants were the rudest Iv ever dealt with, anything I asked for was not available, air conditioning was not working in the middle part of the plane. I could not stand sitting so I stood in the back the WHOLE 10 hour flight from the heat. I was so uncomfortable I will definitely take action on this one. I will demand a full refund the whole way I was extremely upset."
Pros: "Service when it was done"
Cons: "Infrequent service Crowded Entertainment system bad"
Cons: "Refused to refund cancelled flight"
Cons: "Excellent customer service"
Pros: "THE CREW AND THE SPORTS CHANNEL"
Pros: "Excellent service. Food was great too!"
Pros: "I like the food, seats and customer service"
Cons: "boarding was horrible of both legs of my Turkish Airline. The Istanbul Airport is a total disaster and dysfunctional. Experience delays in both baggage and flights."
Deplaning suggestion: Inited could take a page from other countries airlines and ask that we remain seated until theorie in front of us deplanes. Easier on everyone that way
Easy short flight from Johannesburg to Harare. Boarding was slow, flight attendants were friendly. They did a meal service on this short flight, including wine, which was pretty cool.
Loved the customer service and the fact that everything was on time, the served refreshments are a cherry on top
There was no entertainment, but that is not expected on a flight less than 2 1/2 hours. Uber clean aircraft, good boxed meal and friendly flight attendants. Very please with the experience
The check-in line was long and people were put in front of me in the line even after I said I had checked in online. It took me an hour to finally get my documents checked and drop my suitcase. It was horrible!
Pros: "The crew was mazing and the seats are so comfortable."
Cons: "To me everything was excellent from the captain to the flight attendants i was impressed i have been to all domestic flights but Airlink is the best and after yesterday flight i decided that Airlink is the one for me onwards. The only thing i can suggest is the points program then the sky will be the limit for you. Keep up the good work guys BIG UP."
Pros: "Flight was on time and crew was great"
Cons: "good short flight"
Pros: "Time keeping, plane was well sized and okay"
Cons: "Didn’t get a single sensible meal!"
Pros: "Attendant was professional"
Cons: "It was okay"
Pros: "Everything was good!"
Cons: "For a short flight on a small aircraft nothing could have been better."
Pros: "It's a shorter flight so, no IFE. The front row of the business section was nice. I'm glad that reserving those seats worked out for this flight, although it didn't on all the other flights."
Cons: "No entertainment available, and the BUQ departure lounge could be improved"
Pros: "I was forced to give my carry on bag to be put in the hold. They said that it would not fit in the plane. When we got to our destination, i found that a large sum of money from my bag was stolen,"
Cons: "Security of our baggage should be better. And if you cannot fit the standard carry on bags, then please say so when people make their booking so that they can pack accordingly and do not bring carry on bags that they have to give up at the last minute. it is impossible to remove items last minute."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Luggage was riffled through and item stolen"
Cons: "Delayed flight with close connecting flight and none of the flight or ground crew were able to communicate with the connecting flight gate agents. No priority for deplaning and tarmac shuttle was given to those with close connecting flight. Had to sprint through airport and barely made connection."
Pros: "Amazing crew, wonderful short flight and delicious snack. Could not be any better."
Cons: "Just continue the wonderful service."
Pros: "There was hardly anyone on the flight so I got a row to myself! Also the flight was fast and smooth and landed on time despite boarding about 45 minutes late"
Cons: "At the beginning they needed 8 people to move up front for take off which was weird but obviously not anyone’s fault, and if the flight was full wouldn’t have happened, so it’s probably not something that could be done differently but was just weird."
Cons: "Johannesburg Airport was terrible and every where we turned in the airport we got misinformation and people tried to scam us for tips including airport employees."
Pros: "It was good just the way it is."
Cons: "Why put cheese on the cross bun not good at all."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Efficient crew"
Pros: "Airport check in went quickly and smoothly! Waiting lounge was excellent!"
Cons: "Nothing to report."
Pros: "Economy seats are comfortable"
Cons: "The entertainment system works very poorly, it need to be upgraded! The quality of the image is very poor, the touchscreen does not respond easily and the stream is often interrupted by clips of ither movies or programs. This is unacceptable for a 14+ hours-long journey!"
Pros: "We were on a small cramped plane. The food was horrible."
Cons: "Rude employees at the counter in the airport."
Pros: "The crew were great."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 2 hours. We barely made our connection flight in Johannesburg, which resulted in us having to run through the airport. We did not have time to get dinner."
Cons: "With over 1.5 hrs to check in, guards allowed others to cut in front and my son was told no problem, he would not miss his flight. He did miss his flight and couldn’t apply his ticket to another flight. Had to pay in full to buy another ticket for a flight 5.5 hrs later. Not good!!"
Pros: "Easy process to get to Joberg. Flight was on time and comfortable."
Cons: "Similar to some other reviewers we had to completely exit the terminal at JNB and then check in for our international flight sequence on Qatar, this was easy but caused a little anxiety, especially after learning that the total checked baggage for one person on the air link is 30kgs (66lbs) which is less than standard international weights. We had to pay extra for the “overweight” bags but the cost was reasonable. I would use the airline again."
Pros: "The plane from Antanarivo as on time - quite an accomplishment for Madagascar!"
Pros: "Stewardess was very professional, spoke clearly, was very helpful. On time and affordable rates!"
Pros: "the seats"
Cons: "Food was cold"
Cons: "The flights were not operated by South African Airways, so when we arrived to Johannesburg we had to take our luggage and register it again and make a second check-in. Because both flights were operated by airlines different from South African Airways we were not able to accumulate our One World miles."
Cons: "Spraying a very potent chemical in an already crowded small plane that send people home sick is not the best way to treat passengers. We do recognize there is probably a reason for doing it. Has the airline consider the impact on those with respiratory issue? Some passenger could not stop coughing until their final destination. Hope they find a better way."
Pros: "Everything was good - timely, service, check in, etc."
Pros: "Left inn time and arrived a bit early only 12 14 passengers in a 36 pAX plane..."
Cons: "Small Cramped seats No power plugs...average food"
Pros: "Seats wider (or seemed to be so) than most economy flights. Flight crew courteous."
Cons: "Have lived in Madagascar for almost two decades and have never seen such disorganized boarding. No signage, staff all the same uniforms (thus no visual clues), no gate noted on boarding pass. Very frustrating. Two Airlink flights were leaving at the same time due to a delay for one flight, so better communication needed. Plane toilet disgusting and would not flush."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "I do not understand why the staff wait for all passengers to be on board and close the door to spray this unbreathable air spray. I was suffocating during a few minutes and coughed during the whole flight. My throat still hurts. The cheese sandwich was terrible."
Pros: "Efficient on time no hassle"
Cons: "Cold food. SAA used to serve hot meals. What happened to that?"
Pros: "short, easy flight"
Pros: "Pilot and Stewardess were good and airport was nice. I appreciated the flights from Cape Town to Skukuza and from Skukuza to Johanesberg."
Cons: "Airport crew not able to answer questions outside of their scope of responsibility. I asked a question several times and reply was "good afternoon". finally another person helped and directed me to another part of the airport where I asked the same question and received blank faces until supervisor showed up."
Pros: "It all went as expected. Today, that is excellent"
Pros: "I enjoyed looking out the window as we flew. Interesting countryside compared to what we have where I live in the U.S."
Cons: "Maun airport is small but it gets the job done. The people at the SAA counter were not well versed with checking bags to your final destination when you continued on from Johannesburg."
Pros: "South African Airlines is like flying years ago when you were given respect and special treatment. It's my favorite airline, by far. Actually, it's the only airline I like to fly. I've flown Delta, Lufthansa, KLM and United to South Africa - big mistake. SAA is what I wish all other airlines are. They are first rate."
Pros: "Pleasant experience. Gate personnel and crew were friendly and helpful; plane and seating were comfortable."
Cons: "No flight information signage at gate, and gate boarding public announcements were distorted. Besides being distorted, it was hard to understand the 'English' translated announcement."

Cons: "It was over booked. I wasted my precious time in the airport for half day... and the staff of ethiopian were not kindness."
Pros: "Food and drink was good."
Cons: "Every single flight (4 total) took off late and even caused us to miss a connection. On the way to Madrid from Entebbe, my luggage was mislabeled and sent to London and now is completely lost.

Cons: "Nothing very nice flight."
Pros: "the drinks"
Cons: "reduce on the spices in the food or provide different options."
Cons: "It took 45 minutes for a flight attendant to respond to my call despite me calling dor assistance every 10 min. I had an issue with my tv screen and was not able to use the in flight entertainment I am very dissatisfied with such poor care and professionalism from your staff. This was something that should not have taken 45 min to get solved and even worse despite the call light being on multiple flight attendants walked by and did not even bother to question why the call light was on"

Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Staff needs to be briefed on what an insulin pump is."
Pros: "The boarding was superb."

Pros: "Comfortable flight, pleasant airline attendants."
Pros: "Very helpful, attentive and kind cabin staff."
Cons: "Somewhat dirty ( and smelly ) aircraft even though they are a very new fleet. Some seats had strange patches and stains. Overall cabin experience can be improved in terms of hygiene and food quality ( food was mediocre or slightly worse). Seat ahead reclines almost too much into personal space in the new 787 aircraft. The LCD displays don't pivot so it's virtually impossible to view the entertainment when the occupant of the seat in front fully reclines ( a somewhat irritating issue on a long flight )"
Pros: "1) On time"
Cons: "1) Food from Lusaka to Lilongwe was poor. Just sandwithes and drinks 2) Small bumpy, noisy plane from Lusaka to Lilongwe 3) No entertainment"
