Cons: "Food selection was a bit short"

Cons: "We were scheduled for a 55 minute layover in Zurich which was not nearly enough time. Our plane was 10 minutes late in landing but our next flight was delayed 5 minutes. We had to take a bus from the plane to the terminal, go through immigration with very long lines, take a tram to our departure terminal and then run to our gate which was at the end of a very long hallway. Luckily they held the plane but it was very stressful and exhausting getting to our plane."

Pros: "Hard working on board crew"
Cons: "check in procedure in Berlin: That airport is different. You drive right to the gate from which you board the plane. I showed up early and was told that I had to take by suitcase to another location if I wanted to check in 3 hours early. After lugging the suitcase a quarter of a mile, I was told that they don't do that and I had to return to the designated gate at the appropriate time."

I tried online and calling the # that was provided no results. I managed to get thru to someone and they told me they would send the info to my email but they never did."

Pros: "Air hostesses were very courteous, friendly and the cabin was clean and comfortable. My flight from jfk to Geneva (then Zurich) was cancelled due to weather in Geneva (Swiss 23) so I got upgraded to a delta flight to Brussels then to Zurich Comfort+ !!! Thank you!"
Cons: "Flight from Zurich to Johannesburg: Swiss 288 (airbus a340-300) Sat in the last row of the Swiss air flight, economy, which was okay but our whole row video enternatinment system didn’t work. You’d pick a movie and it wouldn’t play. The games, camera and flight status animation all worked but not the movies. Air hostess tried resetting , still nothing. But it was a great opportunity to have a lovely conversation with my new German Friend Barbara and read my book! More lactose intolerant alternatives for breakfast which had much (cheese, yogurt, croissant) Other than those two , excellent flight. Thank you Swiss!"

Pros: "good stuff"
Cons: "HAving to walk across the Zurich airport to buy a business class upgrade was bad. I just wanted to buy the upgrade at the desk. No need to go from terminal 3 to terminal 1. total waste of 20-30 minutes. Ironic that this happens to people willing to spend $'s of dollars for convenience and comfort. should be able to purchase upgrade ASAP with a smile at check-in."

Pros: "The Israeli crew on El Al were very polite and tried to help."
Cons: "When we arrived to Swiss desk, after checking in at home including choosing seats, we were sent to El Al desk and had to start everything from the start. We couldn't even choose seats . It was a great disappointment. We don't think we fly in Swiss again"

Pros: "In general it was perfect. Chocolate from Suiss at the end of the flight is just amazing!"

Pros: "Swiss Air was the best airline ever!"

Cons: "THERE'S SOO LITTLE LEG SPACE BETWEEN SEATS ON THE ECONOMY SECTION I IS VERY UNCOMFORTABLE, SPECIALLY FOR A TALL PERSON ON A LONG FLIGHT.......ADDING TO THE FACT THAT THE PERSON IN FRONT OF YOU MIGHT DECIDE TO BE SOOO COMFORTABLE,HE'D PULL HIS SEAT ALL THE WAY BACK WITHOUT ANY CONSIDERATION!!!..THAT PUTS THE SCREEN ONLY INCHES AWAY FROM YOUR FACE!!..BESIDES, THE CHECK-IN MACHINES AT THE ZURICH TERMINAL ARE A HARD TO UNDERSTAND..TRIED SEVERAL TIMES TO CHECK-IN WITHOUT SUCESS!!"

Cons: "The seats. Kind of uncomfortable"

Pros: "So far so good"
Cons: "So good"

Cons: "100% of our checked luggage was lost and two days into our one week biking trip in Sweden we have heard NOTHING from Swiss Air. No knowledge of where the four large bags are, no follow up and no help. Basically, we have been left with biking clothing and little hope that our bags will show up before we leave Sweden. Unacceptable and we will NEVER fly this airlines again."

Cons: "The food on board."

Pros: "The crew was great and the flight was smooth. The food was also good."
Cons: "The passenger next to me in the middle was hitting his arm rest on my leg and made my flight uncomfortable because he would not sit still. I think crew needs to do a better job of making sure everyone stays seated when the plane is still moving before jumping out of their seats and grabbing their luggage. Passengers should be able to exit out of more than one door same as entering."

Pros: "The staff the staff the staff. They made the trip so enjoyable. The A330-300 aircraft was smooth and silent. Very impressed"
Cons: "The seats in business class were not as soft as they could be but very impressed overall and good value for the cost of the business class ticket"

Some of them didn't speek English and didn't understand why thy have to stay in the airport.On the other hand I saw how the officials laughed at him because he tried to fight for the place on the flight by using a foreign language. It is an ugly phenomenon that does not respect people"

Pros: "The food was great!"
Cons: "I booked my ticket on Kayak two months prior to the departure date. The whole reason I booked it with Turkish Airlines was because the seats were listed as "lay flat". So I paid $150 more over the other airlines for the lay flat seating on my 8 hour flight from Katmandu to Istanbul and another 10 hours on to JFK. Well the seats weren't lay flat so I feel like I got played by Kayak and didn't have a very comfortable flight."

Pros: "I eventually arrived at the destination."
Cons: "Difficult to communicate with cabin crew due to lack of English. Flight was delayed by 1 hour. General atmosphere on plane was chaotic I think due to the small plane and length of flight as large numbers of people needed to use toilets."

Pros: "In general I like all the comfort that offers Turkis Airlines to their customers."
Cons: "There are some employees there are not so kind. When ever a customer request for assistance."

Cons: "Flight was very late departing, despite arriving on time. No excuse other than simply inefficiency. No drinks offered, during 45 min flight. No headphones given for entertainment."

Pros: "Crew and food were great."
Cons: "Seats handles were too low--could never sit fully upright and rest my arms. Not a comfortable flight."

Cons: "Nice flight cheap n cheerful"

Cons: "Seating"

Pros: "Nothing - we were stuck at the airport for over 10 hours due to a strike. Missed all connecting flights. They didn’t even offer accommodation or reimbursement on air tickets for our next destination."

Cons: "Not many movies to chose from."

Cons: "The person ushering us out of the gate was not very friendly and that could need some work"

Pros: "Wow tj about a new airplane! I camt say enough about this flight it was spacious, enough entretainment to last the 4 hr flight no problem. Letrines galore!!"
Cons: "The airline needs a way to make the boarding both more efficient and orginized. It felt as if i was boarding a mini bus in any of the small towns, i was for sure waiting for someone to show up with a goat pushing people out of their way"

Pros: "staff crew on the plane were very nice and accommodating"
Cons: "food portions are too small and movies selections. most movies were very old"

Pros: "Clean plane, on-time departure"
Cons: "On this flight the meal trays stayed on the tables for over an hour (after the meal was served), should have been collected faster"

Cons: "Old planes and little entertainment"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Left late. Boarding experience was stressful and confusing."

Pros: "This company obviously trains its employees to belittle and disregard customers. I have never dealt with a company so at fault for an issue and so utterly unwilling to make up for it. First, they cancel the first of our 3 flights to Delhi 18 hrs before it is to leave. The flight they replaced it with would leave us 10 min to make the connection. So we went to the counter and they told us they'd hold the plane, as did the stewardess on the flight. They lied. The plane left 10 min before we landed. We were stranded. Also, I got food poisoning from their food. They did nothing to help. They would not pay for the hotel we wanted, when we asked they rudely served everyone else they stranded first. The employee would not call his supervisor or give his name. The next morning i saw a doctor but the stomache infection was so bad i couldn't sit up or walk. The doctor wrote this on my clearance to fly document. I needed to get to India to get better medical help. We presented this to the kenya airlines agent and she would do nothing to help. She had business class reclining seats available but would not upgrade me. Even after everything this shitty airline has caused. Unbelievable. Every step along the way of this nightmare could have been made better, so much better, by some human decency but instead we got rude disregard."

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: "Boarding was early"
Cons: "Plane full and didnt have enough room for a number of hand luggage, mine invcluded"

Pros: "Timeous and polite crew"
Cons: "The food was mediocre and no choice for entertainment, common movie or 2 low quality music channels"

Pros: "Service excellent, flight on-time."
Cons: "Only 3 movies to choose from?!"

Cons: "Staff on the airplane a bit miserable. Uncomfortable seats and no choice of food. Going downhill"

Cons: "Kenya Airways ground staff in Nairobi was late to open the desk, creating a large line"

Pros: "The flight was short."
Cons: "There was no clarity on baggage allowance on either leg of the flight. This created a situation in which I was charged two different amounts of extra baggage and given bad information on both the departure and return trip. It was also unclear that, though we'd purchased a Kenyan Airlines round-trip between Nairobi and Zanzibar, the outbound leg was operated by Precision Air. This was not indicated on our e-tickets. We found out at the airport."

Pros: "Convenient morning flight"
Cons: "Not enough leg room for tall passengers"

Pros: "the service was very good. The food was well done."

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "The food was so-so. The flight was delayed. The crew was friendly, but nothing outstanding."

Cons: "The flight was delayed. Food was so-so. No entertainment."

Cons: "They lost one piece of baggage. The check-in crew said we were required to have our vaccination cards although nobody asked for them. Then we waited an hour pulling off one piece of baggage and then they didn't load it on our flight."

Cons: "Flight cancelled streessed up"

Pros: "It was a great flight except for food"
Cons: "Choice of dish - fish ( was like rubber) or beef"

Pros: "Plane was a new Dreamliner and nice to fly in with excellent entertainment package."
Cons: "I had 3 hours in Johannesburg before catching a shuttle bus, so being an hour late wasn't a big problem. After rushing from Entebbe flight which was an hour late leaving and arriving, I got to the gate to be informed that this NBO to JNB flight was an hour late in departing. Pilot said it was due to "technical difficulties". My ticket had 4 legs : Nov 28 due to leave JNB at 1:20 finally left at 8:30 due to NBO runway closed from plane belly landing - the pilot was very apologetic - LATE. Dec 5 NBO to Entebbe was an hour late due to "passenger problem and luggage taken off" - LATE. Dec 10 Entebbe to NBO left an hour late due to "plane arriving late" - LATE. Dec 10 NBO to Johannesburg was an hour late due to "technical difficulties" - LATE. All 4 flights were at least an hour late leaving and arriving yet the pilots all said thanks for flying Kenya Airways - the Pride of Africa. This is what Africa should be proud of ?!? and Kenya Airways is proud of ?!? Passengers I talked to all were negative in their comments about Kenya Airways. All said there is ALWAYS something of a problem on a Kenya Airways flight. Lady on NBO to EBB flight next to me as we boarded plane and I said everything has gone smoothly so far, replied - the flight isn't over yet - and then we sat in the plane for an hour while they "removed passengers luggage". A man in NBO departure area as we waited to board JNB late flight said, the procedures and organisation are terrible with problems most of the time, which was why he was using up his reward miles because he didn't want to fly Kenya Airways again. This is the culture of this airline which is allowed to continue with seemingly no regard for the paying customers. If the powers that be such as the FAA, imposed a $100 credit to each passenger for late leaving or arriving, I would have received $400 back on a ticket that cost $750. Maybe the airlines would do something practical to remedy their problems and care for the paying customers rather than just saying "we are sorry for any inconvenience "."

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."

Pros: "KQ is the best East African airline by far. The planes are newer and cleaner and the flight attendants really do make an effort to give a high-level of customer service. I've missed my transfer due to a weather delay before and was impressed with KQs attention to getting me overnight accommodation. It would be great if we could sort out the regular delays of KQ410 into Entebbe which directly impacts KQ411 back out to NBO. The regular delays are often due to weather but just as often due to scheduling or flight issues. Delaying that flight makes my transfers really tight and adds some stress to my experience, especially with the extra security level in Nairobi. If we could find a way to fast track transfers, that would be an improvement. Overall, KQ is the best, but please continue to find ways to be better."

Pros: "That we eventually left"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed because the airport shut down. When the airport opened again. They gave us a departure time 4 hours after our original departure time (1:20 am). 1:20 came and went without any more communication or information. 1:40 am arrived and someone from KQ showed up at our gate and said they do not have any additional information. We said there are children here and hungry, tired, frustrated people. We suggested they distribute waters or snacks, but that never happened. They just kept telling us they didnt know when the flight would take off (or if it would) nor when they would have any additional information. An hour later they made one announcement over the speaker at our gate that our flight was boarding at another gate. However, many people had fallen asleep on the floor as I had and I would have missed it if one of my fellow passengers hadnt woken me up to say that we were boarding. We then sat on the tarmac a while longer for reasons that were not explained and finally landed 7 hours later than scheduled. Very little effort was put into communicating to us, making our wait comfortable nor apologizing for the inconvenience. It was a very frustrating experience."

Pros: "The Lounge experience"
Cons: "The Entebbe stopover"

Pros: "very efficient processes and very friendly/capable flight crew."
Cons: "the food was not great (i don't have high expectations for airplane food)"

Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Extremely friendly and helpful hosts. Enough space. Overall a very rewarding way of travelling to East Africa. Will use them again. Very impressed on our flight from Johannesburg to Nairobi -- they booked our 87 year old father-in-law about 5 hours before flight time, took care of his luggage all the time, and helped him get on the flight after midnight on his own. He arrived safely with such good care!"

Cons: "1 hr delay in departure from Lusaka. Plastic cutlery was difficult to eat with. More frequent water/drinks during the flight (or water bottles instead of little cups) would have been appreciated. Movie options were not as great as other airlines."

Cons: "Good crew"

Cons: "The chicken was undercooked."

Cons: "Flight was delayed and caused me to miss my connecting flight on another airline that had no other flights that day.

Cons: "The entertainment system not working correctly and the food was poor"

Cons: "Food must be better"

Pros: "We had a ridiculously tight transit, arriving in Addis Ababa 20 minutes before our Madrid flight was meant to depart, and I was amazed by the outstanding support and assistance provided by the ground staff. Every single person who was meant to make the connecting flight did—and our luggage did too!"

Cons: "Not very clean Several used towels noted in seat"

Pros: "Was on time"

Cons: "I've been flying Ethiopian airlines over the last four weeks to nine African countries and can give an overall excellent rating. They're always on time. They however showed the same movie on all flights. The food quality and variety also need to be improved. Thanks"

Pros: "delayed departure due to weather , very limited information from the crew towards the passengers."

Pros: "It is an African airline so I am doing my best to support it. I am grateful I was allocated to a hotel for my long layover"
Cons: "I had a long layover in Addis and the hotel I was allocated to could improve its service. I was expected to be served breakfast in the morning. My flight was at 820 am There could be some improvement on food"

Cons: "Transfer at Addis Ababa was horrendous - no help from ground staff and the airport was a confusing mess. The landing in cape town was very rough and jumpy."

Pros: "Brand New Aircraft"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything was bad, very upset !"

Cons: "Bad plane flight was cancelled. Horrible experience."

Cons: "Food can be improved."

Cons: "Chairs were not reclining. Asked for blanket and didn't get one so I was cold."

Pros: "Comfortable. Crew excellent. On time. Efficient on boarding and landing - good information throughout"
Cons: "Addis Ababa airport very crowded with no seat available for five hour stopover. Food outlets limited"

Pros: "The crew very kind and made me feel comfortable"
Cons: "Old 767, with not comfortable set up and no individual TV set."

Pros: "Tried to cancel charged anyway bad service"

Pros: "I did like the overall services. I was comfortable with the crew and was entertained. I enjoyed the night over in the fhoice of loudging with nazra Hotel."
Cons: "I didn't like the quality of food in the hotel panaroma on my return. The hotel needed air refreshner as it wae stuffy and difficult to breath in. The reception was excellent but poor service."

Pros: "The service during the flight was perfect"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Boarding was okay and crew were friendly"
Cons: "extremely old airplane, mediocre food, almost non-existent in-flight entertainment."

Cons: "Addis Airport is terribly organized and far too small for the volume of people they're pushing through it (which is probably the lead cause of the poor organization)."

Cons: "Very very old aeroplane"

Cons: "There was no entertainment system and there was no vegetarian option. I would have registered for the vegetarian option ahead of time, but when I tried to do online check in, it didn't work."

Cons: "Food and entertainment is very poor."

Cons: "Addis airport is a disaster, Really long queues and badly organised, Our flight left 20 minutes late and in turn made our landing 1 hour later. The flight attendants on Ethiopian air are very lazy, they dont respond to the service button been pushed, and their English is not that good,"

Pros: "We are so tired of showing up our passports many times in the ethiopian air lines. Overall we had a very good trip and the crews were so nice."

Pros: "At checking in they did not mind allowing the less than one Pound extra weight"
Cons: "I speak only German and the did not translate to German their announcements but they did in french"

"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."

"Food excellent"

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: "The was amazing."

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: "Crew very caring and respectful"
Cons: "For me I don’t see any problem with the airline at all. Everything was superb"

Pros: "I like everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "yeah"
Cons: "movies"

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: "The aircraft was clean and the food served"
Cons: "The turbulent"

Cons: "The flight attendant took a picture of my passport. I filed a complaint but I have yet to hear back with result."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The transition too long"

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Late"

Pros: "Good"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I did not like the flight both ways! Going to Lagos from Lome, the aircraft had no air conditioning, we were stuffed and backed close to two hours. On boarding took close to 45 minutes. Aircraft looked like a jalopy Going to Lome, the crew was rude, they should have acknowledged the passengers been baked in the sun before boarding. Tragic!!!"

Pros: "Left on time..smoot flight..good landing"
Cons: "No snacks but I Iunderstand it's just a 35 minutes flight."

Pros: "Nothing"
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: "The flight was quick and left on time."
Cons: "The crew was too rigid, the plane was stuffy and old, and the food was stale."

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."

Cons: "I just learned from the airport that carry on bags are 7 kgs only. Since I had my computer in it I was forced to hold it in my hands."

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: "friendly, clean; also snacks!"
Cons: "turbo-pro, and unexpected stopover in Abidjan on previous flight to bamako."

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: "Boarding and crew was very efficient !"
Cons: "There was not enough legroom and also elbow room. Seating in the middle seat was a terrible experience."

Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Comfort"

Pros: "Excellent care from ticketing to the cabin crew. The fact that our connecting flight in Lome taking us to Lagos waiting for our arrival made it even better."

Cons: "This is the same plane I took business class from Sao Tome to Lisbon. Overnight. 7 hours. No entertainment. No lay flat or fully reclining seats. OK for a 2 hour flight. Unacceptable otherwise."

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 cabin crew were very polite and professional"
Cons: "The delay"

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."

Pros: "The flight staff were polite and friendly. the flights arrived on time. thank you."
Cons: "Please provide WHITE wine. Asky only seems to offer RED wine."
