Pros: "Amazing crew, super hospitality, conformable sit"
Cons: "non for now, may later after much observations, other than that.. it was a great experience flying with Qatar airways.."
Pros: "Crew were Great, With great service"
Pros: "Staff were accommodating and considerate, great flight!"
Cons: "Good service and better than average let room and overall seat confirm, which is a big plus on long haul flights. Will definitely choose to fly Qatar again."
Pros: "Everything.. will do it again!"
Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "Food and being ontime"
Cons: "Seats are too hard"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Bassinet seats could be bigger for comfort with an infant."
Pros: "Empty plane."
Cons: "Service very reactive, particularly with so few passengers."
Pros: "Qatar Airlines treats you very nicely and doesn’t try to charge for little extras. They include the nice extras as part of your travel experience with them. I highly recommend Qatar!"
Cons: "Qatar Airways are the best"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and delightful."
Cons: "The crew was amazing and delightful but should provide food to kids first before even those special diet or vegetarians."
Pros: "Most of the crew was really nice and the entertainment choice was great."
Cons: "Asian Vegetarian meal was so-so. Dessert is never good for special meals. Boarding was particularly annoying as there was a document verification line and then the actual check-in. Even if you've done online check-in the document verification people will shout at you and tell you to line up."
Cons: "Excellent service and stuff"
Pros: "Great flight in-service was fantastic. I didn’t use the entertainment service because is the old movies."
Cons: "Please include Nigerian and Ghana movies"
Cons: "Many of the entertainment systems were broken."
Pros: "Amazing except for the entertainment it was horrible"
Cons: "Entertainment system , 6 hours flight without entertainment is tough"
Pros: "Crew was not mean"
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable, entertainment screen had poor picture quality, eggs were black, stank + inedible, long bathroom lines , a child screamed most of the flight, no internet, couldn’t change phone, checked bags damaged - handles ripped off!!!"
Pros: "Customer service"
Pros: "It is so far a cut above the American carriers. There’s no way to compare them, because Qatar Airways is so far superior. The seats are far more comfortable and larger, the amount of legroom is far superior, you have much more personal space, and the craft is cleaner. Flight Attendants are fantastic! They provide excellent personal care, and are there for everything. They are supremely polite and courteous, and bring things in mediately. Very often anticipating your needs. This is what flying used to be like on United and American. But those people have completely forgotten what service is. Qatar is a 5 star airline. United and American, to my view, are 2 star at best."
Cons: "I get the safety thing with the window blinds but wish if it was 40 degrees outside they would let you close them until the plane takes off"
Pros: "While my Qatar airways flight from Houston to Doha (# 714) was almost perfect, flight #1335 from Doha to Nairobi was a huge disappointment."
Cons: "The flight attendants didn't seem to know what they were doing, food ran out before i got any breakfast, the IFE system for my seat didn't work,"
Pros: "Last row seats are never optimal but tha flight attendants were above par!!!"
Cons: "Wonderful people! Cannot day enough about the difference that makes."
Cons: "Unfortunately, my baggage was lost on this flight, which will make it very difficult to climb Kilimanjaro!"
Pros: "great service from flight attendnants."
Cons: "Old aircraft for flight from Doha to Nairobi, no personal entertainment etc."
Cons: "Again had to wait for the flight for 8 hrs due to change in flight time with no explanation"
Pros: "The long flight from Houston to Doha was good."
Cons: "The short flight from Doha to Nairobi was uncomfortably because of dry air in the plane."
Pros: "Flight service"
Cons: "I missed my flight from Nairobi to kisumu"
Pros: "Crew, service, price"
Cons: "Seats are small"
Pros: "Great Staff"
Cons: "Asian Vegetarian meals needs some improvement. Lack of Africans as part of the crew."
Cons: "Flight was diverted to Kuwait, due to poor condition for landing in Doha and we loose connection to Bucharest."
Cons: "Theyt cancelled my trip"
Pros: "They do not provide hotel service even in a 11 hour layover saying the ticket is pomotional. If that is the case, why they sell tickets on promotion? Cheap mentality"
Pros: "In-flight treatment"
Cons: "The seat"
Cons: "Old plane treating the Africans like poor people of no value .. All other Qatar flights have newer aircrafts"
Cons: "Great service. Courteous staff. Professional and well groomed crew unlike some US carriers. Decent beverage and food offerings in biz. Badly outdated IFE system."
Pros: "Seat features. Extensive beverage and food menus. Great IFE system"
Cons: "Had to flag down crew for pre-departure beverage and hot towel. They are usually more attentive"
Pros: "This review is for return travel from ATL to MAA (Chennai, India) and back. Route: ATL-DOH: about 14.5 hrs; DOH-MAA: about 4.5 hrs; Likes: 1. Baggage check-in process was simple and easy. 2. Meal preferences was good - I'm a vegetarian and on the onward journey forgot to specify the meal preference but the crew had enough inventory to meat the requirements. 3. Every seat was provided with a small plastic pouch/packet/goodie bag that consisted of a eye mask (very thoughtful), pair of sock, toothpaste+brush (very thoughtful), hand cream. This was very useful and effective. 4. Entertainment - options were good and current."
Cons: "Dislikes: 1. Online check-in wasnt easy; towards the end of the process, there is an option to email the boarding pass but this never worked. Not sure if this is something to do with the browser (tried with Firefox, Opera) 2. It would have been good, as part of the online check-in, if the users reminded to specify the meal preferences, etc. I forgot to specify the meal preferences but thankfully the crew had enough of what I wanted. 3. Take a relook at the packaging of the toothpaste tube in the goodie bag. It was sealed in such a way that it was difficult to open it w/o a sharp object. This should have been easier. 4. Seats were the worst part - poor legroom. Worst, the seat cushion is the worst. I think it was just a fabric over a metal seat with minimalist of cushion. ATL to DOH leg was the worst (and the longest leg of the trip). Unless you have open seats next to you it would be a back breaking and painful trip. Seat comfort wise, I would rate Qatar as the worst. Luckily on the return leg (DOH-ATL) next two seats to mine was empty, so was able to stretch and sleep well. DOH-MAA or MAA-DOH seating was little better (think its a older plane; newer planes have worst seats) 5. The website was damn slow while accessing from overseas. Even in the US, at times the website hangs-up, freezes or spins often. 6. Food was ok -dinner and lunch but minimalistic; I didnt see any specific breakfast menu or any coffee served separately (was part of beverage option during lunch or dinner) 7. There was no alert, communication, notification, reminder of upcoming trip via email or text, etc. Many airlines does this very often but Qatar was totally silent on it (they did have my email during checkin). Not sure why."
Pros: "I enjoyed my flight overall with good service by the attendants. Additionally, the food quality was good for an economy meal."
Cons: "long layover and very tight seat conditions were my only big complaints."
Pros: "The Plane was good but not updated with new data"
Cons: "Time delays .. old movies... not a good service with food and beverage... no compensation for the waste of time... restrooms werent clean"
Cons: "The boarding process was strange, with one guy directing several different zones to stand in line, people not cooperating and just overrall not very organized."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and patient. The flight departed on time."
Cons: "The plane was small and cramped. The food was mediocre and could have been more creative"
Cons: "Since I was sitting in the row starting a new section in the plane (row 26?), crew members walked in front of me throughout the whole flight. Sometimes if my legs were extended, they were stepping over me, so it just got annoying."
Cons: "Flight was delayed materially with little forewarning Service was poor"
Pros: "Crew were wonderful, spacious legroom."
Cons: "Boarding was crazy."
Cons: "I didn't have much time on my layover, i would've expected the transfer to be better."
Pros: "I liked that it was empty and I could lie down."
Pros: "Amazing airline with excellent crew and ground staff ever willing to help!"
Flight didn’t go to mombasa
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: "Friendly crew, comfortable plane"
Cons: "Luggage lost, unhelpful Kigali Helpdesk. Johannesburg VERY helpful"
Cons: "Customer services"
Pros: "I was happy to avail of Wifi in the sky."
Cons: "No entertainment! For an major international flight, one expects some seatback entertainment"
Pros: "Well organized on check in. Attentive"
Pros: "New plane, fresh feel. Food is ok."
Cons: "Airline feels basic and no frills."
Pros: "Took the newly opened route between Cape Town and Harare. Was a great experience. Thanks to RwandAir it is easier and cheaper to fly directly between these African cities. Lots of potential on the route. RwandAir really opening up business and leisure opportunities much needed in these areas. Nice to avoid Tambo airport."
Cons: "Both flights were slightly delayed (which happens), information about the delay could be better at Harare airport. But no biggy."
Cons: "No vegetarian option Bad boarding procedures, no one gets direction and it was very slow"
Pros: "The planes and shuttles are nice and clean, and the staff are pleasant. I had a long layover in Kigali and the airline gave me accommodation and a food voucher (totally unexpected). Will definitely fly RwandAir again."
Pros: "Fligh was on time, front desk staff were very helpfful, flight staff were friendly"
Pros: "Timeliness, Service, Cleanliness Comfort"
Pros: "The Airbus. The crew's simple commitment to excellent service"
Cons: "The unconventional check in closure 90mins to departure even when the plan arrived late"
Pros: "Nice blankets. Good service."
Cons: "Food wasn't that great and juices were very sweet (tasted like sugar water)"
Pros: "Nice comfortable new planes."
Cons: "There wasn't much not to like."
Cons: "We incurred significant extra costs (visas, taxi, hotel costs) because Rwandair changed our flights around from what we had originally booked, with no compensation or help navigating the visa process."
Pros: "New airline. Left 20 mins early."
Pros: "Landing was very smooth. I got window seat as requested."
Cons: "My bags were mistagged and almost sent to Lagos instead of Nairobi. The agent noticed the error after the second bag was tagged. He went to search for my first bag that already went down the ramp. Although I gave him the exact description of the bag (purple hard case), he retagged the wrong one (red soft case). Good thing he took a photo. Third try was the charm but shouldn't have happened in the first place. Agents need to be more diligent with where they are sending bags and to double- and triple-check before he luggage is sent down the ramps."
Pros: "My sister and I were travelling to and from Tanzania through Kigali. The crew was great and our flight was easy."
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: "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: "We had a delay of 40 minutes at Kigali airport without prior announcement"
Pros: "Flight was delayed over an hour. Otherwise the plane was new, everything felt good, and I have nothing to complain about!"
Pros: "Rwanda air crew"
Cons: "Lagos international airport"
Pros: "The staff at the airports were friendly."
Cons: "After thorough check (and hours at the airport) at the holiday destination, Dubai, my luggage was deemed lost. The DXB lost luggage staff helped me complete a 'lost luggage' report. However, the staff member told me that 'if' RwandAir found my luggage, I would be responsible for going to the airport as RwandAir does not have lost luggage delivery like most airlines. For the six days of my holiday, I waited for phone calls and checked emails expecting to hear from RwandAir. I heard nothing, RwandAir had made no effort of any kind to locate my luggage they had mishandled. Upon flying back home, I checked with the initial airport (DXB), the transit airport (Kigali), and my final destination airport (Brazzaville). My luggage was not in any of the airports mentioned. In each airport, and the RwandAir office at the Brazzaville airport, I presented the initial lost luggage form from the prior week and it was apparent that nobody, no airport, and no office was interested in finding my luggage. RwandAir, at no point, apologized for losing my belongings or in any way attempted to make up for seriously harming my holiday- not to mention the fact that it appears I will never see my possessions that were last seen being taken by RwandAir staff at the beginning of my holiday travels."
Pros: "Staff courteous and friendly"
Cons: "Some choices on menu do not do well by time of serving ie fish"
Pros: "Like Kigali it was clean and efficient."
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"
Cons: "No entertnainment"
Pros: "Clean, comfortable plane and seating. On time service, courteous attendants. A meal served on a flight that was only about an hour in duration - very nice. Very pleased with this airline."
Pros: "Everything went well as expected..."
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."
Cons: "We were delayed by 1 hour because more cargo was being loaded on to the plane. When we arrived in Kigali, we found that our bags had been left behind to make room for other cargo. We arrived and checked in well before the 1 hour cutoff and we were under the weight limit, so there was no reason for our baggage to be left behind. We were informed that our bags would NOT be delivered to us at our next destination, that the burden was on us to retrieve them AND there was no stipend or any type of refund to compensate us for the inconvenience. Since we were continuing our travel by road to Uganda, we had to pay extra to have a driver return to the airport the next day to retrieve and deliver our bags. This is very, very poor customer service!"
Pros: "The Rwandair plane was modern and clean. Kigali airport has a nice cafe, and check-in was efficient. The plane left a few minutes early."
Cons: "Check-in closes one hour before your flight. Economy class: Food was a clingwrapped sandwich. The attendant gave me two bottles of a good South African wine. Security has gotten quite uptight at Kigali airport. They now stop your cab a couple hundred meters short of the airport, and have a dog check the vehicle. You have to pass through another security checkpoint at the entry to the airport building, and a third security into the boarding area. The final security check even takes away any empty bottles you have. And don't take any fingernail scissors in your handcarry, even if they have blunt points. You may have an hour or more wait in preboarding, and without water or bathroom excess. So takke care of these needs in advance."
Pros: "Clean planes"
Cons: "Ground crew at NBO - Rwanda Air has Kenyan Airways do the work in the terminals. Bad idea!"
Cons: "This airline is an operational nightmare. I purchased a ticket with a connection, and the second flight being a codeshare, two months in advance. On the day of travel, I checked in, checked two bags, and headed to the gate. An hour before the flight, a Rwandaair agent approached me to inform me that they were no longer code sharing with precision air, the second flight. Chaos ensued, my bags got lost, I got stuck in Nairobi, etc. in Nairobi, one of the Kenya airways agents literally said to me 'avoid Rwandaair and precision airlines - they are both airlines that do not follow any regulations, and not just operational, but safety as well.'"
Pros: "Crew were pleasant. The flight was comfortable."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, causing me to miss a connecting flight. Boarding was a bit confusing as multiple flights were departing from Kigali airport at the same time and same airline. Information was not conveyed clearly and it might have been easy to begin boarding the wrong flight."
Pros: "the flight got me to Gaborone on Monday morning"
Cons: "Person in Kigali checked my bag to Johannesburg, not Gaborone. Flight was delayed one hour. Slept on a chair in Johannesburg airport for three hours."
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."
Pros: "They have great food, amazing crew, great customer care.."
Cons: "No entertainment, some few crew members has a bit of an attitude."
Pros: "Flight attendant are helpful."
Pros: "Free wifibat the airport and the charging stations"
Pros: "Service! Smooth ride and good food!"
Pros: "the only one thing I loved about the flight was it being DIRECT from Mombasa to Kigali. I didn't have to pass through Nairobi."
Cons: "Don't expect a lot in Africa. The service wasn't that bad, but it needs a lot of improvement. Partyly because Rwandair's planes are small (Boeing 737-200) there was a lot of turbulence during the flight... A lot to learn from Kenyan and Ethiopian!"
Cons: "Better seat More friendly crew"
Pros: "Food was adequate and good."
Cons: "Seats in both flight weren't adjustable."
Pros: "nothing I liked about this flight. Our flight was delayed by more than 6 hours. Even though airline had an opportunity to bump us in their sister airline- precision airline in earlier flight Nairobi, they refused to help us. Precision air had lot of seats empty."
Cons: "Kenyan airways do not care about customers and inconvenience they are facing. We were suppose to arrive Dar at 7:30 pm and instead now we will arrive at 1:30 am on 28th Jan 2020."
Cons: "KQ has never not delayed. This time, it was delayed twice for a total of three and a half hours."
Pros: "Crew is great and friendly. Plane comfortable and clean."
Cons: "Boarding in Harare was a little delayed. No explanation or information was provided. Food on board : a bun and a muffin were provided for breakfast. No butter or jam or honey or chesse. Most unimaginative meal."
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: "Seats super comfortable"
Cons: "Real food and not just snack"
Pros: "Lazy crew dont even provide water when needed. The cabin was extremely hot and the blowers dont work."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. Smooth take off and landing"
Cons: "Meal options. The only available options were sandwiches. A bag of nuts would have been nice"
Pros: "I was upgraded to first class!"
Pros: "The crew was great, and greeted passengers with a smile."
Pros: "The plane is quite comfortable"
Cons: "Boarding and keeping time."
Pros: "Crew was amazing! Elvis smelled good!!!"
Cons: "Avoid flight delays. We missed our connecting flight on Dubai because of delayed departure from Nairobi."
Cons: "Too many onboard announcements"
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: "I liked their service and more so, there orange juice"
Cons: "Since this was a short flight , I don’t have much comment."
Cons: "By far the most uncomfortable and crowded plane I’ve ever taken."
Cons: "I’m still in Nairobi because they delayed the plane"
Cons: "My flight never left Kigali and neither etihad nor Kenyan was able to help"
Pros: "Friendly crew and flight was punctual"
Cons: "No inflight entertainment"
Pros: "Everything worked like a flight should work from check-in to landing"
Cons: "Food was minimal and rather tasteless, but not a real concern"
Cons: "The temperature of the cabin was ridiculous. The entertainment didn't work and the food was poor."
Pros: "The best flight attendants who met my needs with prompt, positive, politeness. Again, my highest regards for Kenya Airways!"
Pros: "The flight services were good but with two major horrible issues:"
Cons: "1. It took almost one week after my arrival to trace my checked-in baggage. Horrible indeed. Moreover, the baggage contained my medications and other valuables which I needed on ongoing basis! Very disappointing! 2. Despite being charged for the full fare as indicated online, Kenya Airways charged my debit card an additional fee of $31.19. I thought the amount that I had paid to KAYAK was final? I will NEVER dare use such a travel agent engine again in future!"
Pros: "Only the pilot take off and landing was owesome.. the other services were very poor.. eg I hated it when all our largages were left behind"
Cons: "pilot take off and landing.."
Pros: "The check-in and in-flight service were up to expectations. Friendly, efficient and professional"
Cons: "The 737 is too old and the business class seats need to be changed. They did not recline fully and the door rest also could not be extended completely. Consequently, the seating and resting postures were extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "Kind people"
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"
Pros: "Solid overall performance in all the basics"
Cons: "Crew were always in a bit of a rush and cold, Paris airport staff were frankly rude sometimes"
Pros: "Nice configuration and good early boarding plus courteous staff"
Cons: "Cabin was too hot and no headphones, gor the narrow movie selection"
Pros: "Everything went as it should."
Cons: "The AC in the plane was a little bit to cold"
Cons: "In a lot of airports, if a flight is delayed, the airline is aware and holds planes on the ground for a few mins if there are multiple people that will miss the connection. In this case, we were delayed for 2 hours, arrive to Nairobi and am at the gate 15 mins before and they sent me to customer service as the gate had just closed. More than 5 other people on the flight missed this common connection as well. Not only did KQ not have a system in place to work with other flights, the service area was completely swamped. People missed their connections because they couldn't get to the front in time to have a boarding pass printed or have a question answered. The staff were rude and didn't give eye contact or answer questions."
Cons: "Boarding procedures took too long consequently missed connecting flight. Crew seemed overwhelmed, chicken dinner was half cooked, entertainment system didn't work."
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."
Pros: "The baggage handler for Kenya Airways, Derrick, in Johannesbury was very helpful checking on my delayed luggage. The flights and flight attendants were very good."
Cons: "Late departures, unscheduled stop for crew, and baggage not making new flights made me miss two transfer flights. Closed sales kiosk in Johannesburg unable to get an hotel and meal vouchers. Sales lady was rude the next day. Arrived Cape Town over 24 hours late."
Pros: "Nothing. I wasn't on this flight"
Cons: "I still need to be re-booked!"
Cons: "My flight was 36 hours delayed and Kenya Airlines did not tell us why. I then heard that the same flight had been delayed three nights in a row. This led me to book another flight to my destination, so that I did not miss anymore of my trip. I am going to pursue a refund of my original flight. It seemed to me that Kenya Airlines new the flight would be delayed and said nothing until two hours before. Also how they handled the situation was very poor. I will never fly with Kenya Airlines again."
Pros: "I liked the food and actual service on the flight"
Cons: "Notorious for flight delays! How can you cancel an entire flight the day before?! Horrible! The delays are very annoying! Kenya Airways you're fired! Kayak, you guys should remove their crappy service from your options!! I only found out about the delay from their online service. The actual people suck! And do not even try to get through on their customer service line!"
Pros: "tickets were cheap"
Cons: "Flight was late leaving Dubai therefore causing me and several other people to miss our connecting flight."
Pros: "Business passengers still served snacks even with such a short flight. Great view of Mount Kilimanjaro"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled after waiting from midnight until 6:00 am in the Airport. Could have gone to a hotel... lost 2 days"
Cons: "Kenya airways is a symbol of operational disorder and absence of any client orientation. I would strongly recommend Kyak to take it off its recommended airlines"
Cons: "Their flights have been late all the two times I flew with Kenya Airways. Could be a problem if you need to connect to another flight!!"
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."
Cons: "Boarding was late."
Cons: "The cabin attendants attitude need to be warmer and friendly. The food was not good."
Pros: "Helpful, friendly crew. Comfortable plane"
Cons: "In flight entertainment could be a little better. Perhaps let passengers know about the inflight entertainment available via WiFi"
Cons: "Plane was very very old"
Pros: "Asked for water that I never received. Wasn’t allowed to bathroom although still 20 min until landing and other people still got up"
Pros: "Airrbus A350 confort"
Cons: "Crew professionalism and food to be improved"
Cons: "There is no phone charging or entertainment. Also couldn't bring on carry-on sized bags with wheels and were forced to check them."
Pros: "The crew were very welcoming, helpful and charm, makes you feel easy"
Cons: "General interior cleanliness"
Pros: "Flight and crew"
Cons: "Food and inflight entertainment"
Cons: "There was no entertainment. Breakfast was standard"
Cons: "Addis Airport is a NIGHTMARE!!! It took two hours to check in and the lines were insane. It was absolute chaos, people pushing and airport staff did little to manage it. We almost missed our flight because the lines and process was so disorganized. The plane ride - the plane was old. My seat was so old, the cushion was worn down to the point of feeling like a bucket seat. This was really bad..."
Pros: "The plane was spacious"
Cons: "-The flight entertainment wasn't working -There was a delay, but no one from the airline communicated; we were just waiting and the waiting area didn't have sits"
Pros: "Not stopping in Blantyre"
Cons: "No comment"
Pros: "I liked the crew. They are kind."
Cons: "The boarding in Addis was an absolute nightmare. No one could figure out where to go and when. Mombasa and Nairobi flight boarding was mixed. I've never seen anything like this. There was not enough room in the boarding area so everyone was pushing and shoving. I can't recommend Ethiopian airways to anyone after this experience."
Pros: "Nothing. I was 2 hours early for the flight - it was over sold. They never apologized, they just told me "I didn't have a seat" like it was some how my fault... then sent me to the airport hotel and put me on the next days flight. I realize it wasn't the people at the desks fault and nobody was doing this TO me, but it was just stupid it happened at all. I don't get how they can just screw a whole day for a group of people and not even say "sorry.""
Cons: "They over sold the flight. Eight of us had tickets - I bought mine over a month ago - and they just sold too many seats or had too small of a plane or something. I've NEVER had this happen in 6 years of traveling continually. It's on my short list now of airlines that really just don't care."
Pros: "Cheap fare, no frills."
Cons: "Too hot, crew isn’t friendly (could be cultural difference), jam packed flight with tons of small children so was unlikely to ever be super pleasant."
Pros: "New plane fantastic cabin"
Cons: "There was a fight but nothibg to do with the flight crew just some passenger with mental issues"
Cons: "No Wifi at Lome gate. I don't understand why there is no wifi in West African airports."
Pros: "Flight crew was nice and responded to problems well. More trash pick up and water service would have been nice as it was a thirsty, long flight. I was given more water when asked it just wasn’t freely offered."
Cons: "The arrangement of the airport was disconcerting. To get to your gate you have to pass a another security point that you can not leave. The area was akin to a cattle yard. No bathroom, water, or amenities. You had to stay in your pen until boarding. Duty free was not allowed and had to be purchased on the plane for an additional cost. Not to mention the whole stopping in Dublin, Ireland for fuel without notice. There was nothing in my paperwork about it and we were only told to stay in our seats for the next hour or so while they refueled. We didn’t do that on the flight over was that was worrying and we were given no additional information."
Pros: "The overall work ethics and the ease of boarding was awesome as well as time line, for hotel transfer due to layoff time was also excellent"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Cons: "They overbooked and pushed us to later flight, later flight boarded late, on run way 2 hours, plane maintenance issue so changed aircraft—supposed to arrive 1:30pm, arrived after 10pm, gate agent erased reservation adding frequent flyer number so my seat was given to someone else and I sat finally in last row by toilet instead of with my family—then no one can find record of my return flight and Ethiopian contact number impossible to reach. Truly awful experience. I have no idea if I will have seat on return flight."
Cons: "we were seating 2 hours at the aircraft with no electricity an then they move us to another aircraft and totally we arrived Nairobi more than 3 hours delay"
Pros: "The food was amazing and the plane is more comfortable and you can relax."
Pros: "The food served is awesome and sufficient. The flights are comfortable and the crew are friendly. My luggage came right on time and was properly handled"
Cons: "Well there was no entertainment in the flight. That is it"
Pros: "The pretty ladies"
Cons: "Lost luggage and horrible food"
Pros: "Good food for a such a short trip to Nairobi."
Cons: "Boarding very confusing, gates changing and could barely hear through the PA system."
Pros: "ET's on board crew is excellent. The food is great."
Cons: "Delayed without explanation or heads up"
Pros: "Good food and drinks"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "We boarded around midnight and after supper, I am accustomed to a few hours of the lights turned off for rest. Even though I requested the crew said it was not policy and I should use the yellow mask (which sadly does not block out the light). I think a few hours off dimmed lights would greatly enhance comfort levels."
Pros: "I liked the interaction of the cabin crew with the passengers. They were helpful and responsive."
Cons: "I was disappointed with the limited entertainment options on board. Also, the boarding was a bit hectic because of the congestion at the airport but I reckon that is not the fault of the airlines."
Pros: "The flight left on time and arrived 20 minutes faster than scheduled. I usually order Kosher meal and enjoyed the food. Unfortunately the Kosher meal they started to serve recently is the WORST food I have had on board. Please avoid the KOSHER!"
Cons: "On both flights. From Tel Aviv to Addis Ababa and from Addis Ababa to Tel Aviv my seat would not recline. These were night flights and the seat in front of me did recline. so it was a very unpleasent experiance"
Pros: "It was nice and cool just that the space between seats were small compared to the flight from lagos to Addis."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Pros: "The flight attendants seemed a bit disorganized delivering the food and drinks"
Cons: "I find it exceptionally bizarre that for a company whose name represents a country that spends more than half the year fasting that there isn't an option for this unless you specifically ask online."
Cons: "Comfort level and food."
Pros: "Smooth Flight."
Cons: "Too crowded."
Pros: "The friendliness of the crew and their spirit of hospitality make this company stand our from others. Also the new aircrafts and the amenities on board are a big plus."
Pros: "Dreamliner was awesome"
Cons: "Horrible food selection, needs improvement"
Pros: "Boarding was okay and crew were friendly"
Cons: "extremely old airplane, mediocre food, almost non-existent in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "flight left on time otherwise nothing noteworthy outstanding to mention"
Cons: "- poor food (as usual) - no inflight entertainment (as usual) - no priority boarding"
Pros: "TIME KEEPING"
Cons: "Played a kids movie... I don't even think there was a kid on the plane. Everything about this flight had me feeling i wouldn't want to fly on Ethiopian again. Bad experience. Same as the flight above. Terrible food."
Pros: "Nice staff at Precision"
Cons: "Every conceivable element, from the utter chaos of the airport to the challenge of navigating the check in to the quite warm cabin."
Cons: "I was told when I arrived that I have no seat in my booked flight, I have to reschedule and leave 8 hours later. Why let me start my trip is the knew I am going to set at the airport for hours after flying one leg."
Cons: "Poor service overall. Little empathy or care for passengers. Passengers are just a task to handle."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "My bags got lost arriving & departing Zanzibar."
Pros: "Great flights but the online check in was cumbersome and could be better!"
Cons: "Check in"
Pros: "only takes20 mins"
Cons: "Boarding was inefficient and crowded with two flights using same gate"
Cons: "Sitting on the ground with no air and no info"
Cons: "Had to get off the plane and go through two security checks again in that airport.... and wait to get back on. Unorganised"
Pros: "Given that the aircraft had a problem, we had to wait and wait to go until they could get a part from another location. Ultimately, they brought in new equipment and we left soon after that. They did provide vouchers for a snack and lunch. That was good. Once on the plane, everything was very smooth."
Cons: "With the delay, it took them a while to begin to explain what the problem was and how long the delay would be."
Pros: "Choice of flights"
Pros: "I liked that we could take checked luggage without paying."
Cons: "I didn't like that there was no water in the bathroom and that there was only one bathroom in the whole plane at the back. The ground staff in Mwanza were just sitting around and not even directing us where to go for our luggage."
Cons: "Nothing dreadful but not great, on both flights both I and others had malfunctioning TV systems. Seats were just about okay. In general it was ok but not great"
Pros: "Good overall"
Cons: "Relatively uneventful, short flight to Zanzibar. Love the cashews--we only get peanuts (I don't eat) on America's airlines. Flight crew good. Ticketing & boarding a bit confusing. No one tells you where or when to go."
Cons: "The plane was delayed by 2 hours. We ended up missing our connecting flight to Antananarivo. PrecisionAir staff kept reassuring us that we would be fine and would be able to catch our flight. Very very poor service and terrible experience. I will never fly with PrecisionAir ever again."
Pros: "When everything went as planned, the airline is fine"
Cons: "As I arrived at the airport I received an email that my first segment was rescheduled (not delayed) 3 hours later. They did not try to call. There was no consideration for my second leg/segment, which I missed due to the schedule change, and it was the only flight of the day. It took them 2 hours to tell me if they would book me on another airline to try to make my connection, and by then it was too late. They tried to not give me a hotel room because it was a "technical" delay, and only after I showed them the email I received that it was a "schedule change" did they give me a hotel. They also didnt offer food vouchers for the 3+ hr delay until the airport restaurant asked FOR us. I was so frustrated by the lack of caring that I bought my own one way ticket home on another airline."
Pros: "There was nothing about this airline that I remotely enjoyed- it was one disaster after another"
Cons: "Precision Air is awful and should be ashamed of their "customer service". My inbound flight on Etihad was late arriving, which didn't leave me much time to process through immigration and make my flight, so when I missed my connection, I was forced to pay a "service fee" to get a ticket on the next flight. When I complained that it was not my fault due to my other flight being delayed and a long wait to get my visa, the agent replied "this isn't MY fault either!" This airline does not understand that every agent is a representative of their company- horrible service. Then after my trip, Precision Air I changed my outbound flight so it arrived 2 hours AFTER the next leg of my trip departed! They sent an email at midnight saying my flight had changed, but didn't bother to notice that this change would result in me missing my connection by over 2 hours. As there is only 1 flight a day on the other airline, I was forced to either be delayed by a full day, or purchase a one-way ticket on another airline to get home. I had a very important meeting the next day, so I was forced to spend an extra $350 on another airline to make it home. Precision Air is a horrible airline and I would NEVER fly with them again."
Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "Flight was considerably late"
Pros: "The flight actually left on time and arrived with our luggage."
Cons: "Trip from hell on our previous Precision flight...."
Pros: "All you need for a short flight was provided."
Cons: "Traveling with Precision Air simply a nightmare! Worst travel experience in over 20 years of flying. Staying at the airport for over 18 hours due to flight delays, was not the biggest problem. It's the lying and Total disregard of the customer. Apparently their flights off Nairobi are manned by KQ (another bogus airline!) and had no one in charge at the airport to set the right expectations leave alone care what we thought or expressed."
Cons: "Somehow my Baggage was lost and it took 5 days to delivered and it was tear down.."
Pros: "The flight from Arusha Tnzania to Nairobi was fine. Check in was no problem, the flight was on time and arrived early. No issues whatsoever."
Cons: "Boarding on back of plane with engines running. Very hot air almost burned us. Scary-we had to run out of the way and wait till there was no line to board. That process needs to be fixed. Ground crew outside was no help!!"
Pros: "Good Service, smooth flight Does not have entertaiment Its an hour and 20 min Flight Min flight, But Comfortable"
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "It was 2 hours delayed with only a days notice. I had beentraveling the days prior so it was a surprise."
Cons: "We would've spent the afternoon in Zanzibar but instead ended up getting in at night."
Cons: "The airlines website is slow. The check in process at Daresalaam airport was too long as power failure kept resetting their computer systems"
Cons: "On the handwritten paper boarding pass I was given the same seat as another passanger. When I went to rectify the problem she gave me another seat but again didn't check and that was also occupied. Clearly there was no computerized system helping them to book in the flight: a bit ridiculous in this day and age. After all of that, our flight was cancelled and we had horrible aftercare experience. We were told we would get a refund but still nothing has come of that."
Pros: "Great staff, very friendly."
Cons: "Our flight was canceled and we were put on a later flight which was a cheaper flight... they gave us zero compensation. So we paid a higher fare for a later flight. Absolutely ridiculous. We will be contacting constomer care to get a refund of the difference for our flights."
Pros: "I absolutely hated precision air!"
Cons: "I will never use Precision Air! They are absolutely horrible!!! A group of friends I was traveling with missed our flight even though we were in line 40 minutes early. When the agents finally came to the counter, they said I missed my flight and they weren't going to do anything. After some convincing, Fatmeh finally listened to us and took pity on us and helped us out! She was absolutely amazing! Other than Fatmeh in Dar Es Salaam, I have absolutely nothing good to say about this airline!"
Cons: "I had to change my flight due to electrical issues within the airport of Zanzibar which made my wife and I miss our flight. We were not reimbursed the lost money since there was no customer service number to call to reschedule the flight. We were left with no choice but to purchase new flight tickets once the electrical problem was corrected."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. My wife and I weren't seated together. Flight was incredibly hot."
Pros: "Flight was fantastic"
Cons: "Very high price for 11/2 hour flight! Extremely hot on board d-told stewardess but nothing was done. Gave us a tiny chicken sandwich , the size of a golf ball. Seats were tiny with no space!"
Pros: "Nobody bugged me about using my laptop (in airplane mode) during takeoff and landing. Free drinks and snacks"
Cons: "Really bumpy descent. One of the passengers threw up."
Pros: "NOTHING !"
Cons: "They lost my luggage going to AFRICA...didn't see the suitcase until 6 days later. When I received the suitcase, over $1000 in equipment was stolen , suitcase was all scrambled...I WAS ROBBED ! ...then on the return flight to HOUSTON, they lost my suitcase again ! W.T.F ?! No one has called me to apologize for anything ! I expect to be reimbursed for my loses, or I will sue the airline."
Cons: "Terrible service and semi abusive conditions at the Kilimanjaro airport when we asked about our luggage. My husband was harrassed about his passport while we waited in line for the luggage claim and then once we finally go through they have no luggage delivery so we had to pay $200 for a taxi to bring it to our hotel."
Cons: "We arrived at the counter only to be told that we needed a ticket number even though we had the confirmation number. We showed them the email itinerary that was sent to us by precision air. Not enough. They told us to go to the sales counter which was outside. They were of no help. We had go through security to come in again. This was all handled by Kenyan airlines. There was no representative of precision air present. Finally they made a phone call and got the conf number. Why didn't they do it to begin with. The lady was very uncooperative."
Cons: "flight was not listed on leader board. There was no staff anywhere after going through security to ask questions when the flight was delayed!"
Pros: "The prices are reasonable, they use larger planes and they leave early if everyone is there."
Cons: "The website is miserable, I could not check in online nor find my booking. The flights change times frequently, and the boarding process is very disorderly. Although we had assigned seats, we were just told to sit anywhere. Also, the plane was sweltering hot, and the air blowers did not work. Again, probably the only option for our route, but not a very good one."
Pros: "flight was on time without much drama. Baggage arrived at Destination!"
Cons: "cramped, smallest overhead luggage bins imaginable."
Cons: "Flight itself was actually pretty good. That is, once they found us in their system! For two days we were continually told we did not have tickets!!"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable and quick"
Cons: "Since we booked through a third party vendor our booking was lost and we had to sit in the precision air office in Moshi for hours seeing if the problem could be resolved"
Pros: "on time, clean"
Pros: "Like: we landed alive. Crew was great. Uneventful flight, my favorite."
Pros: "Service counter people checked my luggage all the way through to San Francisco including two British air flights. This save me a lot of trouble"
Cons: "Flight attendant was grumpy"
