I was surprised that I was put in first class the whole way! Thank you SO MUCH for such a blessing!

The service available is amazing 🤩

Food

Cons: "Poor communication"
Cons: "Best Airlines"
Pros: "I liked both the seat and crew service"
Pros: "We got scammed out of the tickets from Justfly.com and Ethiopian Airlines turned us away without looking at our tickets. I am upset. Now I have to get more Covid Testing done and that will cost approx. $700 and new plane tickets. JustFly.com's customer service is misleading and deceiving. And they blocked my number."
Cons: "Background check your booking agencies and their agents."
Pros: "The crew whas perfect, the seats comforted and the food whas good."
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: "Plane was very very old"
Pros: "Large space"
Cons: "Bording"
Cons: "Crew members paying more attention to the passengers, more option of food, being on time and cleaning after another flight."
Cons: "Flight delays with no info from staff. Food poorly prepared. No orderly queues - there is aggression with no intervention from staff. There is no need for two security checks when making connections in Addis. Plane loos were all very stinky and dirty. I now remember why I had stopped using ET!"
Pros: "The airline was quick to give vouchers for food and hotel when flight was delayed by 5 hours. They were also efficient in rebooking missed connecting flight."
Cons: "On top of a five hour delay that got me to my arrival point 14 hours behind schedule, my two checked bags were also lost and have not been found up to two days later. The food was like being on a Delta flight, and the entertainment screens in my entire row would not work, nor did many others."
Pros: "Crew was helpful. I had 3 seats to myself, so yes. Seating was amazing."
Cons: "The lunch - tooo much rice no sauce. Food was okay. The sandwich was good."
Pros: "Crew is friendly."
Cons: "The plane is old, tatty and dirty. There is no entertainment. The airport transfer is very very shoddy."
Pros: "flight was on time"
Cons: "Felt a bit like cattle because boarding was in a tight space and there was a lot of confusion as to who should stand where. Not sure why there were different zones for boarding because they didn't matter."
Pros: "Seats small uncomfortable"
Cons: "Bigger seats."
Cons: "1. Make duty free shopping possible. My daughter, that I was traveling withl, loved some jewellery l wanted to buy for her but it was not possible because a credit card purchase was impossible. 2. Provide entertainment on board. Flight from Lusaka to Addis was excellent. But nothing to Nairobi"
Cons: "The orderliness during boarding needs more work"
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Staff needs to be briefed on what an insulin pump is."
Cons: "The landing was terrible and quite dangerous. It was a lopsided and the plane was about to tip forward when we hit the ground. I was quite disturbed on arrival. I’m glad to say the we were lucky that webdid not have an unfortunate incident."
Cons: "Old flight - equipments were not in order like the handrest was broken, TV’s were broken and not functioning, touch screens failed to react to touch, signs on buttons at the handrest were smudged. 3 out of 6 washrooms in Economy class were not working. At one instance I was locked in the washroom as the door was not opening from inside, until I had to call the attendant. Entertainment options were limited. Food was below average. In one of my meals I got opened and melted butter. Cabin crew was not responding to the calls when I needed water. I finally got it after ringing 4 bells and 45 minutes. Overall, a terrible experience and would not choose to fly with Ethiopian again."
Pros: "Ease to select seats on line The flight was a little delayed but they got me to my connecting flight on time at Addis Ababa. Good on board service"
Pros: "No comment"
Cons: "No comment"
Cons: "Lack of communication. The flight was delayed and boarding was very chaotic due to poor communication."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit strange - everyone seated at the gate had to get up, leave the area, and then wait in line to have their passports checked before sitting back down in the same area. After that though, boarding was perfectly smooth & honestly one of the fastest I’ve seen!"
Pros: "Free entertainment! Wish they worked with gogo to purchase WiFi though. Bathrooms are roomier than other airplanes! I’m glad the crew gave me the sandwich even though I was sleeping."
Cons: "One of the toilet covers wouldn’t stay up so you had to hold it while going. Paper towels would be nicer than tissue paper. Wasn’t able to use my boarding pass from my phone, waste of paper. Ginger ale would be a nice drink. Didn’t find a list of their drinks in magazine, that would make it easier. Whenever I needed to use the restroom they locked us out a lot whether for head count or re fueling."
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: "Modern aircraft, good fleet in general"
Cons: "Shabby interior, boarding at Bole. Bole airport needs drastic expansion."
Pros: "Served dinner"
Cons: "the seats however were quite tight and there was no electrical plug for charging."
Pros: "Brand New Aircraft"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Comfort The crew is always so helpful."
Cons: "Food did not agree with me again."
Pros: "Like the online check in and quick bag drop at the aiport"
Cons: "Food could have been much better with less processed foods"
Pros: "Plenty of meal service quick boarding process"
Cons: "Nothing in particular."
Pros: "That I finally had an on time flight with Ethiopian airlines, having suffered through an absolutely miserable outbound flight"
Cons: "On connecting from Bangkok to Nairobi passengers are funneled into a security waiting area with no water, coffee, duty free shopping- absolutely nothing but dirty toilets- for a 2+ hour layover. Bole airport is surely one of the most disfunctional airports on the planet."
Pros: "The worst airline company I've ever used"
Pros: "After a bit of confusion in ADD airport, we reached the terminal where my connecting flight was leaving from. Terminal 1 of ADD airport should be avoided at all costs! Boarding and the flight crew did a admirable and top job and made the difference for me."
Cons: "Terminal 1 Disgusting. Rundown, embarrassing, chaos everywhere and no real sense of security. No police or security presence. You could just walk right into a gate! I was shocked to see this especially being from NYC. If you can avoid Terminal 1 do so. The seats were DISGUSTING! Dirty, warped fabric seating was dirty and caked on. Smelled and many seats were visually broken. I'm glad I brought with me some Clorox wipes to wipe my area down with. You get what you pay for but wow! I would not spend my money on this airline again."
Pros: "The flight service"
Cons: "The food was good"
Pros: "Great prices, and helpful staff"
Cons: "The food was mediocre, almost poor."
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"
Cons: "They almost didnt let me on the plane after THEY messed up by not including my ticket number on my ticket. I had to call my parents in Washington DC from Nairobi, have them drive out to Dulles airport and work it out at the Ethiopian office there to give the OK for me to get checked in in Nairobi. The whole process took about four hours and three managers all while I was stewing, worried I wouldnt make it on my flight."
Pros: "Their flight attendants care about people, and overall it's a great airline, except for food."
Cons: "Ethiopian Airlines consistently has sub-quality food."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Aircraft change led to massive confusion. No priority boarding for business class. Inept and care-least service from the head cabin attendant in business class. Zilch entertainment. Inedible dinner"
Pros: "aircraft was nice and well kept, and crew friendly."
Cons: "too many announcements on PA (information could have been summarized and delivered in the beginning, so that those who prefer to sleep can)."
Cons: "My luggage was lost"
Pros: "New aircraft 777 from Boeing"
Cons: "Food was so poor. Only option was chiken"
Cons: "the hotel they put me in in the connection was horrible"
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"
Pros: "The best flight ever and the crew is super cool"
Pros: "Tight and packed. With the pandemic still going. Children wear masks better and that is not properly enforced."
Cons: "Better seat More friendly crew"
Pros: "Food was adequate and good."
Cons: "Seats in both flight weren't adjustable."
Cons: "No screens on this aircraft"
Cons: "Seating"
Cons: "The issue was not the flight. It was the cancellation policy. I had a best friend suddenly die and I could not apply a credit to future travel on my 4000$ business class seat. It makes me not want to buy through kayak again."
Pros: "Service was perfect"
Cons: "It was an old plane and it was completely full. In this old planes you don't have much space especially when you want to do some work in economic class."
Pros: "By far the best food I have ever had in a flight. And I am still trying to figure out how we landed without and no one noticed. Every one on the flight were amazed that we didn’t feel a thing upon landing. The crew were so friendly and accommodating, it was unreal."
Cons: "Perhaps advertise more to Europeans as this airline is up there with the best of them."
Cons: "KQ is always late! And never provide information to passengers about the delay"
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "I find your company canceled my ticket from Kenya to Cairo for all my 7 tickets"
Cons: "Entertainment"
Cons: "The breakfast was a donut and roll so no protein or healthy option."
Pros: "I liked everything about this trip"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "I had an entire row to myself so this greatly improved my experience, but if this had not been the case I don't think I would have rated my flight as high."
Pros: "Same comment as the Ebb to nbo flight ."
Cons: "Same comment as the Ebb to nbo flight ."
Pros: "Everything went well as scheduled"
Cons: "I’m still in Nairobi because they delayed the plane"
Pros: "Stewards polite and mindful"
Cons: "Weather"
Pros: "Na"
Cons: "Na"
Pros: "I like that the trip had no stops and the food was ok."
Cons: "The check-in counter did not have a credit card machine for me to pay my extra bag fee. This made things very inconvenient for me because I didn't have cash. I had to leave the airport to find a place with wifi because I didn't have service and the airport doesn't have WiFi. I had to contact a family back home in the US to wire me money. The money never came thru and I had to make a cash advance with my credit card which resulted in me having to pay fees. The entire process almost caused me to miss my flight and the lady at the check-in counter tried to keep my change. After wasting all the time getting the money to pay for the extra bag fee the staff were rushing me to get to the plane and threatening me I would be left behind even though it's not my fault I'm running late. I was not happy with my experience."
Pros: "On board movie selection is good, however could be a bit larger."
Pros: "The best flight attendants who met my needs with prompt, positive, politeness. Again, my highest regards for Kenya Airways!"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Left late. Boarding experience was stressful and confusing."
Pros: "Kind people"
Cons: "na"
Cons: "Cabin crew didn't pass out headphones, chicken was tough, cabin crew were not pleasant after having to clean up someone's vomit in the toilet"
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: "Timing & touch downs. Good flying."
Cons: "Food & drink. Little choice, poor taste."
Pros: "Friendly crew, modern plane, good seats"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable, good entertainment, good food and lovely crew"
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: "It was fine."
Pros: "great food, entertainment was good. host and hostess were friendly and professional"
Pros: "Flying from Bangkok to Hong Kong, I didn't expect to be on an airline based out of Africa. Even though it was only an hour-long flight, it included in-flight entertainment and a full meal. The plane was a bit older, but comfortable, and the crew were very kind, friendly, and didn't rush the passengers. I hope I get the chance to fly on Kenya Airways again."
Pros: "Generous carry on limit, good prices, complimentary food on flights, on time departures, on demand entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding lines were a bit chaotic."
Pros: "My bags arrived gate agent efficient"
Cons: "The fact there was no such reservation for me from Lusaka to Nairobi"
Pros: "All in all was good -"
Cons: "three of us were travelling together with 3 bags. Two bags didn't come - they were left in Nairobi. We were in Nairobi more than 3 hours so it should have been enough to get the bags on the plane. This is super frustrating - also can Kenya Airways not deliver bags in nairobi if they left them. I do understand when flight connections are tight etc, but this wasn't."
Pros: "Friendly staff Good food"
Cons: "The movies were not working"
Cons: "Food was terrible throughout Seat was tight"
Pros: "Good save for the delay."
Pros: "tickets were cheap"
Cons: "Flight was late leaving Dubai therefore causing me and several other people to miss our connecting flight."
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"
Pros: "Aircraft."
Cons: "Boarding was late."
Pros: "Crew and food"
Cons: "Hour late even though we had a late arrival of 1:35 am. Made us miss our airport transfer so it took over 2.5 hours to get to hotel"
Pros: "It was on time, had friendly crew"
Cons: "Entertainment system is not great"
Pros: "Have entertainment for a flight more than one hour."
Cons: "Flight take off delay"
Pros: "Comfortable safe airline"
Cons: "Cancelling flights without notification causing arrival at airport way too early. Missed connections & lost bookings. Bad even by African customer service."
Pros: "Entertainment system, USB plug"
Cons: "Flight delayed more than 1h (as usual for KQ) unpleasant crew (as usual for KQ) This airline is moving form the pride of Africa to the shame of Africa."
Pros: "Reception"
