Top 3 airlines serving Nairobi Jomo Kenyatta Intl to South Carolina
Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "The Nairobi airport experience could use a bit of help. there's no a/c and even late at night, it was uncomfortably hot everywhere. Once I'd checked in to the gate I was trapped and couldn't easily leave to get water or go to the restroom, which was increasingly annoying as my flight was delayed. Pretty sure all of this is beyond Qatar Airways' ability to control."

Cons: "After I got in my seat an Islamic lady came and said that I was in her seat. I looked at her ticket and while it was the right seat number, she was on the wrong flight. I got a stewardess to help her. She had gone through 3 boarding pass checks and was still on the wrong flight. They let her fly!"

Cons: "The flight left JFK almost an hour late so I missed my connecting flight to Kolkata. Was supposed to arrive Saturday morning for my Father’s funeral but would not make it on time now.

My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "When the flight is changed by airline for their convenience, they would have given preferential treatment to the passengers involved. We had to bare the cost of food and make us comfortable on our own due to the delay in transit."

Cons: "There's not food which was on menu I did not eat"

Cons: "The food was over cooked, and lacked freshness. I had to have the same meal twice because they ran out of the omelettes. Next time I will try Emirates."
Cons: "We normally fly business class, but this was a quick side trip so we settled for economy."
Pros: "Qatar Airways was very cooperative and kind enough to switch my flight 4 hours earlier with alternative flight free when I asked them to change it if that possible. They did so with kind and smile within 10 minutes while it was very difficult due to boarding time and luggage switching Boarding was okay Crew also was kind, responsive, Food was great Entertsinment was the issue due to airplane size and airplane facilities like Internet and entertainment tv screen was not in your seat Thank you so much Qatar Airways"

Pros: "The flight attendants were stellar--polite, respectful, helpful, attentive. I want to particularly commend the attendant who, after I notified her that someone was very ill in the adjacent bathroom, stood discreetly nearby and offered the person a glass of water when he emerged. Very considerate."
Cons: "The transfer was a horrible, stressful experience. We knew it as a short connection but Lufthansa had accepted it. On our outward bound flight three weeks earlier, we were all met and escorted swiftly by a flight attendant from the first leg plane (EWR-MUN) to the second leg plane (MUN-Nice) to ensure that we all made it onboard. Impressive. On our return journey, no such luck! No attendant to meet us, and a huge line at immigration, full of panicked and stressed-out passengers jockeying for position, with no-one from ANY airline there to do a triage for those with the shortest connections. Ridiculous. In addition, the passport-scanning machines were very slow and quirky. My own passport was rejected because there was no evidence I had passed through Munich on my outward bound journey!! RIDICULOUS. I managed to slip through to a human being and begged the immigration officer to let me go through with my husband, who had had no such problem. The officer told me he could not find a stamp from my earlier transit through!!! Eventually I suppose he did because he let me through. The stamp was there, I found it, but it had been sloppily applied and was half off the page...hence the rejection by the scanner. We made the flight by minutes. NOT GOOD! Surely Lufthansa could do better in their own country???"
Cons: "The entertainment"
Pros: "The crew was amazing."
Cons: "There seemed to be no leg room. The seat was very uncomfortable."
Cons: "Wasn't able to online check-in thus losing my window seat 21A I had selected."
Cons: "Excelente fly"
Pros: "Free entertainment, excellent food"
Cons: "Cabin was too warm; unable to adjust air at seats"
Pros: "Great crew! Excellent customer service with a smile!"
Cons: "Not sure how, but the food could be a bit better."
Pros: "International flights are always the best! You’re treated like you’re sitting in first class!"
Cons: "I packed a SOLID body butter that was brand new. I thought that because it was NOT a liquid but a SOLID it would be okay. Wrong! I took every precaution and even called prior to packing. I didn’t think this would be a problem. So, out it went! My SOLID deodorant was fine, though."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "The new Airbus was a very cool aircraft."
Cons: "Boarding process is really disorganized."
Pros: "I was traveling with a baby alone and crew was very supportive"
Cons: "Boarding from Nairobi was ridiculous. The plan was extremely uncomfortable."
Cons: "The only thing that was iffy were the movies Most were not recent But I did watch Bohemian Rhapsody Excellent"
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "UAL sucks, as expected."
Pros: "Smooth flight. Fairly good meals. Friendly crew."
Pros: "The food selection and quantity were wonderful! The crew and movie selection were great!"
Cons: "My seat storage pocket was broken and I was unable to store items in it."
Pros: "Lots of legroom, friendly crew, and they serve sandwiches! Asked for water after takeoff and they gave it to me without hesitation! I would definitely recommend them!"
Cons: "I can’t find anything to complain about."
Pros: "Crew was kind and friendly. The touch screens were responsive and easy to use."
Cons: "The food was a bit disappointing. It would be great if the bread rolls could be heated up and the pasta dishes be made more interesting."
Pros: "I enjoyed food and drinks"
Cons: "Very cold, I understand that is possible being in airplane a lot, my tv screen was not working and I asked a flight attended for help and was told, “we’ll fix it later.” 8 hours later the plane landed and did not get a chance to use the tv screen features. Should not have to ask again when i have been assured the problem will be handled by an attendant."
Pros: "Once again, the in-flight crew was excellent. The flight was good, but no entertainment is provided."
Cons: "Another late take off, probably because the incoming connections were late. So it was good that the airline delayed the connecting flights. However, this leg of the trip was so late that I barely made it to third leg of the trip. A huge problem is that each of these international airports require that you go through the security check again. For that reason, connecting legs of trips through these airports should not be scheduled so close together. Heathrow is the worst, with security staff that, at best, don’t care that you have a close connection to make and just ignore your pleas to speed up the process, and at worst, are just plain rude."
Cons: "They had one guy checking passports and he was being trained. Someone asked if there was anyone trying to get on the SF flight and a bunch of us raised our hands, but they didn't do anything. We had to run like OJ to make our flight. Not fun. Then the AC wasn't working while we sat there."
Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "Food and drinks were far in between. We were on Delta for an international flight and they almost didn’t stop offering stuff to us. I had a another man with broad shoulders like me next to me and had to spend the next 9 hours leaning to the other side to fit. Asked for help to find a different seat even if I had to pay for an upgrade and was told I couldn’t do that after the flight had started"
Pros: "On time, smooth fly , good food in premium economy."
Cons: "Too warm in premium economy section."
Pros: "There was plenty of room, great staff, no worries whatsoever."
Cons: "The food on Lufthansa has definitely slipped since the last time I flew them a couple of years ago. The main courses are just plain bad. Everything else is good"
Pros: "Everything was great overall. Flight wasn’t full, so I had some nice extra space for the long flight."
Cons: "Sat on the tarmac for two hours before take-off due to snow and ice. The flight itself was fine. Deplaning in Shanghai sucks. Economy class had to wait inside the plane while business class was let out and shuttled first because the plane parked out away from building and we had to walk down steep stairs and then ride a shuttle bus to the building."
Pros: "The business class area was spacious"
Cons: "Crew is too curt... they could use a little more smile"
Cons: "They don’t have order while boarding No space for the carry on- they didn’t ask to check them for free."
Pros: "There was nothing I liked. The walk was too long at Frankfurt"
Cons: "My granddaughter of 3 years had painful ear block and the crew was so unfriendly about it unlike other airlines that try to offer remedies."
Pros: "Very comfortable flight. Good crew member little little bit uptight but expected. Efficient and on time"
Cons: "Need to upgrade mefia hardware to 21st century."
Pros: "The Staff"
Cons: "Walk between connecting flights in Munich was very long (25 minutes) and when we got to the gate for the flight to EWR, there was a very long, and very slow-moving line with only one attendant checking boarding passes for 6 gates. We arrived at the gate and were among the last passengers to board. A last minute additional attendant that was brought on, helped to make the line move a bit faster, but this under-staffed checkpoint added unnecessary stress to our long travel day."
Pros: "While seat did give more leg room, we were still squashed. the guy next to me was a little on the heavy side and he could barely fit in the seat. We had no place to put our arms."
Cons: "we had to go down stairs to gain access to plane; they waited forever to board. supper selections were mediocre at best."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "More movie choices. The food choices this time we're not as good."
Pros: "The crew was friendly, helpful and attentive. Excellent boarding procedure."
Cons: "Entertainment system was very temperamental. Touch screen was extremely slow. The poor performance was aggravated by having the controls mounted on top of the armrests resulting in no place to rest one's arms without disturbing the entertainment system. The seats in regular economy were too small for a 10 hour flight. I am an average to small size person and had no room to get comfortable."
Cons: "Website is very difficult to navigate and use."
Pros: "food and drink very good, flight crew was very nice"
Cons: "boarding was very cramped ,flight was delayed , I lost my luggage"
Cons: "The lost luggage for 4 days and a lot of thing were missing from the suitcases."
Pros: "Everything on time"
Pros: "A flight without screen is a long flight."
Cons: "If Canada wants to charge an ETA fee, then this should come up when booking the tickets. Finding out at the airport then being subjected to a mandatory payment process on my smartphone with zero help from Air Canada is just classless. And the crew almost appear delighted communicating the fact that failure to do this means I will not get on the plane. Like expensive plane tickets are bought on charity. I even tried to cancel the ticket and your agents, Calvin and a lady who did not have a badge gave me a card with a 1800 no. that was never answered."
Pros: "Cleanliness of the plane, brand new plane, delicious food, real silverware, Plesant crew, love the entertainment"
Cons: "Chaos when getting in the plane. First come first serve which could lead to problems. Everyone wants to get in the plane at once"
Pros: "TV & movie selection, food and drinks were great! staff was friendly and there seemed to be a bit more room between seats!"
Pros: "Friendly crew, no delays"
Cons: "Not enough healthy options, such as fresh fruits and vegetables"
Pros: "We try to fly Lufthansa when we go to Europe (2x a year). This trip we upgraded to more leg room in economy and what a difference! Everything else was the same, which has always been excellent. Munich Airport has great food and shopping. Lufthansa's service is truly impeccable, the airline staff were constantly walking up and down the aisles offering food and drink and comfort. Great end to a three week trip in Italy, Croatia, Slovenia and of course Germany!"
Cons: "My wifes luggage was lost, no followup at all from Lufthansa (main) or in Seville which was our destination. We had to call to find out any information. Once the bag was found and delivered to Seville, Lufthansa personnel again did not tell us nor would they deliver the bag to our hotel as the driver had already left. We then had to wait another day to have the bag delivered to Granada. Terrible customer service, the bag was missing for four days causing us to spend time shopping for clothes rather than experiencing the city."
Pros: "The Premium Economy seats were significantly better than Economy seats. The crew was very nice."
Cons: "The movie choices were not very good. Very few current movies."
Pros: "Service confort timimg"
Cons: "Overall it was great experience. Although it was not Lufthansas fault, I just wanted to request Lufthansa to request/require Ashgabat airport to treat the luggages kindly because Ashgabat airport scratched and threw my luggages."
Cons: "In Boston, the boarding process was worst I have seen of any airlines and terribly organized. Given it was 747 flight, the boarding took over an hour and 50 min behind scheduled start time. The crew did not board until after the scheduled boarding time. No crowd control or baggage control announcements. compounded with traffic on the runway"
Cons: "I paid additional money for 3 seats together, when I got to check in I was told I cannot do that. I had to sit separately from my children. I was sat next to an obese man. I kindly asked the flight attendant if I can take empty seat across the aisle from me and was told no without a reason. I thought we were doing social distance ,but apparently not. As for there earlier claim of no 3 seats available next to each other .. it was obviously a lie because the seats just across from me where empty. I hope not to fly on American Airlines again."
Pros: "All 4 legs of our flight were right on time, and the planes appeared to be clean."
Cons: "Paying first class fare buys a couple of additional inches of space, but nothing more. There's nothing really first class about it."
Pros: "Flight was slightly delayed (20 min). However, boarding was quick."
Cons: "The flight was full so no option to distance."
Pros: "The crew was great if bored out of their minds with little to do."
Cons: "Could have been on time."
Cons: "Better organization of when a flight gets delayed at another airport due to weather."
Pros: "Getting from one location to my destination. Making sure to keep us updated on why we would be late to final destination."
Cons: "No Dr Pepper, WiFi wouldn’t work, no entertainment, snacks were okay, crowded."
Cons: "Flight and crew scheduled on time, better service and compensation for wasted time."
Pros: "Nothing. Door closed in my face departure board never showed it was boarding and I ran from my other delayed flight to try and catch the Wilmington flight"
Cons: "American needs to step up their device and the airlines should be punished for their lack of service If an airline vises a non weather delay there should be immediate compensation for passengers. No different than what retailers do to their suppliers when supplier is late delivering merchandis"
Cons: "More beverages"
Pros: "Great flying great time"
Cons: "Great flying great time"
Pros: "Crew was professional and courteous. Several young children on board and they really helped the parents with juices for the kids and assitance putting the accesories into overhead bins."

Pros: "Flight attendant did not speak French"

Cons: "You have no comfort at you seats"
Cons: "1. Crew on the PHI leg was not very friendly. 2. No entertainment on the PHI leg, but I did get to know my two neighbours which I wouldn't have if there had been entertainment. 3. Of course, the seats in economy were poor. My feet became very swollen."
Pros: "The entertaining, the aircraft"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "The people I spoke to on the customer service line and then especially at the service desk in Miami were able to help me get a sooner flight so I didn’t have to be driving home until the wee morning. I am VERY grateful to them and American Airlines policies which empower its employees to assist its customers."
Cons: "I have to say, I’m a medium sized 6 foot guy, but I felt very uncomfortable in the seat with another 6 foot man to my right. I felt like I couldn’t use rest my shoulder, since he was using the armrest. i know this is a calculated decision made by very high ups, but the seats just need more comfort. I was even in an exit row, which has more legroom in comparison, but the actual seat was almost painful."
Pros: "On tume"
Cons: "American and all other airlines need to improve leg room in coach."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Delayed and didn't try to speed up the delay"

Pros: "Entertainment Captain Food"
Pros: "Very simple process. Easiest trip ever. Baggage was easy. Nice staff."
Pros: "Food service was nice. Thank you."
Cons: "The plane felt very old. Long overseas flights without personal entertainment systems can be tough because you're stuck watching bad films with inferior sound quality. When you can't sleep it makes the ride so long. Also, the bathroom midcabin was very insecure. One wall was DISCONNECTED from the floor!"
Pros: "Adequately handled the 13 hr delay."
Cons: "Flight delayed 13 hrs for mechanical problems. Seems to be an ongoing problem w/ American Airlines now."
Cons: "Flight cancelled"
Cons: "My tickets ultimately were booked through Kayak/webjet. I will never book through webjet again. You can't directly speak with an agent. They never sent me my e-tickets. I couldn't download my tickets prior to arriving at the airport. It was super confusing because I couldn't figure out whether I was flying on British Airways or American Airlines. I didn't know what terminal to go to. I finally checked in with American even after they told me to go to British Airways. Next, American said that my booking was messed up such that they couldn't check my bag through. So at Chicago I had to exit the Secure area, pick up my bag from baggage check, check it back in and go back through security. I still didn't have my ticket for the chicago-barcelona leg of the trip. At American, they told be I had to exit the airport again to go to British Airways for the Chicago- Barcelona leg of the trip. Luckily, i asked another agent and she confirmed my flight was though American. It was the most confusing flight experience, I have ever had."
Pros: "Left an hour late, but it was the airport's fault, not the airline's. Arrived very close to the original arrival time."
Cons: "I'm a bit confused by the airline's identity crisis. It was an Avianca flight, not an American Airlines flight."
Pros: "Great flight with a super crew!"
Pros: "Crew was fine even when we had to sit on the ground for 1 1/2 hours for a repair."
Cons: "American Airlines didn't honor my choice of seats."

Pros: "Plane arrived early."
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "Flight was canceled. Had to rent a car and drive to make meeting."
Cons: "I lost this flight! They were supposed to give me a hotel and a flight the next morning, but I couldn't be late so I had to manage myself and pay a lot more to travel with a taxi to Greenville !!!"
Pros: "When we finally got home."
Cons: "3 1/2 hour delay on tarmac for mechanical problem. Finally switched planes. Another 2 hours waiting to take off. They promised food but didn't provide. They almost forgot to reload everyone's luggage."
Pros: "My departing flight crew was very accommodating for my baby and I. They were very pleasant."
Cons: "I wasn't able to board first with my baby, so I had to try and walk through all the passengers with a baby, diaper bag and small carry on. It was a little difficult."
Pros: "Second leg when purchased extra leg room, that's the way all seats should be. We boarded timely but then left late. Free tv was nice although I didn't watch it."
Cons: "Don't like the glass of soda and they don't hand you the can but that's just me. Lare departure."
Pros: "The plane was new on the interior and comfortable."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed and then cancelled. We were given new flights the next day 8/20/16 and that was delayed for a few more hours. We wasted a day and a half at the airport and our hotel for the first night could not be refunded."
Pros: "Let me book my luggage free ."
Cons: "Texas people on there break,cannot talk to customers that are lost"
